The Great Diet Deception: How US Politics Have Duped the World

A neurosurgeon’s journey into America’s obesity and disease epidemic

In the 1970s, wheat and high fructose corn syrup became staples in the American diet after significant backlash from the American people over inflation and soaring food prices. This change also coincided with the invention of the electric power grid and the incandescent light bulb in 1879.  The change in lighting from solar light to man made light was the inflection point in human history where light began to drive mitochondrial diseases in man.  Dr. Kruse’s journey about how light controls food electrons in the mitochondrial complex became his passion.  Later in the 2oth century the focus of blame was placed upon food and not light.  Politics began to reshape America from an industrial power to a technologic service powerhouse that is fueled by the man made use of the electromagnetic spectrum between the Schumann resonance of 7.83 Hz and the Infrared band of the visible portion of the spectrum of light.  This is where modern ills begin.   Nixon and his cabinet committed to reshaping the nutritional landscape so that high food prices would never be an issue in American politics again, and the US food pyramid was born in the early 1970’s.  To date no one understands how artificial light is the driving force behind modern neolithic diseases tied to mitochondrial dysfunction.  That is Dr. Kruse’s sole focus now.  He aims to teach people the world of quantum biology.

Today, in the face of rampant heart disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, and autoimmune diseases like celiac disease, multiple sclerosis and thyroiditis, we have learned that America’s health crisis began with Tesla and the power grid in the during the last 19th century during the “Electric Power Wars.  It continued with several political moves made nearly forty years ago by elected officials who didn’t want to deal with the fallout of inflation in food prices. Some of our most popular beliefs about good health are, in fact, lies that were sold to the American people as propaganda.  Scientists are now uncovering that the electric power grid and things plugged into increase blood glucose without any added food source of carbohydrate.  This drives altered signaling in cells.  Today PhD researchers are blaming food for the etiology of mitochondrial disease, but the science of light is showing us this is a misplaced notion.  The physics or organisms will uncover deeper truths about nature that tie us back to the eukaryotic origins of the Cambrian explosion when mitochondrion were usurped by our cells.

In 2007, New York native Dr. Jack Kruse, then a Nashville-based neurosurgeon, suffered a torn meniscus in his knee at 6’2”, 357 lbs. Ashamed and frustrated that he’d let his health spin out of control, Dr. Kruse knew his life had to change. He devoured anything he could find on obesity and disease, reading between 5 and 6,000 articles over 18 months, uncovering research on the new science of leptin receptor biology and the physics of light,  along with the dietary lies and propaganda of the USDA, agra-food complex, and the pharmaceutical complex. Dr. Kruse realized he was dying from the same epidemic that now plagues 150 million Americans and billions worldwide  while he ate under man made lights.  Moreover, our light sources and diet is now being outsourced globally to market place that is not ready for the destruction it can impart to human mitochondria.   Leveraging leptin’s cutting-edge science and using evolutionary biology as the beacons for optimal health, Dr. Kruse lost 77 lbs in three months and 133 lbs in a year.  his journey continues today, even as he finds out more things about our leptin receptors connection to the retina and circulatory system that will astound the curious.

His most startling discovery defies everything modern medicine believes about health, weight-loss, and managing disease: obesity is not the result of too many calories, not enough exercise or living a slothful existence. Obesity begins in the eye because of an altered spectrum of light.  Obesity is an inflammatory brain condition that is completely reversible when you control your environment properly. His mito-hack showed him that obesity is a thermodynamic problem causing us to lose energy to our environment and not a state of energy excess that people believe.  He leveraged his findings to help patients in his private practice lose weight and reverse major diseases like osteoporosis, diabetes, and sleep apnea. He eventually developed his “Leptin Rx Reset,” a protocol that acts as a brain surgery without ever using a blade, completely rewiring the hypothalamus by aligning with our natural circadian rhythms and mastering the “timing” of our evolutionary blueprint. His findings include:

  • The timing of when you eat is more important than what you eat: seeing AM sunlight is critical
  • Snacking or eating “small meals” every 2-3 hours as commonly advocated by conventional medicine all but guarantees life-long obesity,
  • Anyone can lose massive amounts of weight without ever counting a calorie,
  • Rigorous cardio exercises (like long distance running or chronic cardio routines) leads to stem cell reduction and shaves years off the end of your life, and
  • Eating fats conventional medicine told us to shun is ideal for Optimal Health.

In June of 2011, Dr. Kruse began blogging about his findings, and people all over the world began to marry the Leptin Rx to an ancestral diet (known as the Epi Paleo Rx template with incredible results, chronicled in forums all over the internet. One such thread on a popular paleo diet forum has logged over 1.5 million hits in just over a year. Dr. Kruse is on a mission to reshape healthcare in America by educating the masses and their doctors on what it looks like to achieve optimal health and reverse chronic disease.
