The author is a chemist with a master’s degree in soil science and more than 50 years of studying potassium nutrition. He probably knows more about that subject than anyone in the world. Potassium is an essential mineral that is deficient in most people in modern society. It is a deficiency that can cause heart disease, is heavily involved in rheumatoid arthritis, gout, high blood pressure, and diabetes. This book will show you how to increase potassium in your diet, how to supplement it safely, and how it is regulated in the body. Potassium physiology is extremely complicated but the nutrition and supplementation is simple. So you will have no trouble preventing a potassium deficiency from sickening you. It is well worth reading and I am certain that both you and your loved ones will be much healthier as a result. Even those few people plagued by high blood potassium (metabolic shock) will find very valuable tips inside.

About the Author

I have been interested in scientific studies as long as I can remember my childhood. I spent most of my high school years studying science and math. I attended one half of a year studying chemical engineering at Cooper Union. I spent the equivalent of a couple of years studying aviation and ordinance at Colgate University, Athens University. Kilgore College, and a series of marvelous Navy schools. I have one year of mechanical engineering at Rutgers University and 3 years of chemistry there. I have the equivalent of between one and two years studying soil science at Cook College, which earned me a master’s degree in soil science. I spent several years as an analytical chemist and then in the next position a year as a development chemist at which time they moved their research out west. Even this long ago I had objected to management lining cement-asbestos pipes with fluoride, which did not endear me to them. I made a living of from then on for most of the rest of his life as an electrician and excavating contractor. However, I really picture myself as a theorist. None of my hypotheses have been accepted by the scientific community, except my hypotheses concerning potassium and copper nutrition, and these only reluctantly and partially lately by the medical community. None have been invalidated though. I has spent most of my adult life studying potassium and copper nutrition as an avocation, and I probably knows more about those subjects than anyone in the world. I had written a book about the relation of potassium to rheumatoid arthritis several decades ago. I have published articles on allied subjects in; The Journal of Theoretical Biology (1970, 1983), The Journal of Applied Nutrition (1974) which gained the best article of the year award, Clinical and Experimental Rheumatology (1983), and Medical Hypotheses (1984, 1999, 2007, 2008). The information in this book is based almost entirely on solid scientific experimental evidence or epidemiological studies. The only exceptions are a few individual case histories and a few private communications. I have been a believer in the experimental method from as long as I can remember, which is at least 80 of my 86 years. For instance, I had a hypothesis that a crab got its action by snapping its claws. So I waited until a crab had its claws close together and stuck my finger between. The screams that rose on the air brought my whole family galloping out. My grandfather needed two pliers to pry that crab apart. Actually it was poetic justice. If you are about to be boiled to death, the least you can be granted is one parting nip. These days I am supposed to be retired up in the pleasant hills of western North Carolina, well above the Tsunami zone. However you would find it difficult to believe if you could have seen the monumental amount of time writing this book, even though I had written a considerable part of it previously in journal articles and web sites.
