The story behind this missing nutrient is shocking and outrageous, but I will get to that in a minute.
You may not even know you are missing this nutrient because they don’t teach about it in schools, not even medical schools.
Methylsulfonymethane, aka sulfur, aka MSM is found in all living organisms.
It is in raw plants and animal foods.
Sulfur is not found in any foods that have been shipped, stored, refrigerated or cooked.
Stop for a minute and think: how many foods did I eat today that did NOT fit into one of those categories.
Sulfur bonds with moisture and is carried away when dehydration occurs. This is why stored, refrigerated or cooked foods no longer contain sulfur.
In the body, sulfur is used to repair cells which have been damaged, as well as to promote the growth of healthy new cells by allowing the cells to transport oxygen more effectively.
Sulfur also makes cell walls more permeable, allowing more nutrients in and allowing waste materials to pass out of the cells. It has a cleansing or detoxifying effect on the cells removing toxins from all types of cells, including fat cells.

There have been some significant studies done on MSM.
Dr. Stanley Jacob, professor of Surgery at the Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland studied sulfur’s therapeutic benefits in more than 15,000 patients.
As the senior author of The Miracle of MSM and MSM: the Definitive Guide, Dr. Jacob presented facts on how the sulfur crystals can significantly decrease the pains of arthritis, back pain, headaches, athletic injuries, asthma, carpel tunnel syndrome, autism, and a host of autoimmune diseases like lupus and fibromyalgia.

Where can you get organic sulfur?
Remember Sulfur/MSM is a nutrient/food that your body can consume. You can NOT overdose on MSM, your body will take what it needs and flush out the excess every 12 hours.
Another way you can get MSM into your body is by taking Epsom Salt Baths, which contain Magnesium Sulfates. For more information read Luxurious Detox.
Now for the shocking story.
Back in 1930 petrol-chemical fertilizers were introduced, replacing manure fertilizers. These oil based fertilizers destroyed virtually all the sulfur in the soil, which means no sulfur in the plants grown, therefore no sulfur in the animals that eat the plants.
Cut to 1985, when Finland became alarmed over the increasingly obscene rise in cancer. Finland banned the use of all chemical fertilizers, fearing the levels of cadmium, totally unaware of the sulfur connection. Since doing this, they have seen their disease rate drop to 1/10 of their 1985 levels.
In 1985, the United States had the same rate of disease as Finland, but you know how this story ends. The United States disease rates continue to sky rocket to this day.
Why???? The FDA refused to ban chemical fertilizers.
This is why the food supply in the United States is deplete of sulfur.
