On the battleship "King George V"

During the second world war the doctor Peter Cleve (born in 1907) served on a huge English battleship. He never had to sit around. The sailors were always sick, tormented them constipation; however, it is almost occupational disease of people of the sea. Strolling on the deck, Dr. Clive than once wondered how varied the nutrition in people for a long time. 200 thousand years ago people began to eat cooked food, and the body was time to adjust to this. But only about 100 thousand years ago there was another important change in cooking: technological advances have allowed to start cleaning foods, especially flour and sugar. Replacement stone millstones metal, speed of manufacture of flour and baking products have changed beyond recognition product, which our ancestors called bread. As a result of all these improvements flour primarily cleared bran. The same thing happened with sugar and salt. Our current salt is almost pure NaCl (sodium chloride), while rock and sea salt contains a wide variety of macro - and microelements.
It is interesting, for example, that the most healthy (of course, relatively) people live in countries such as Japan, Spain, Venezuela. Why? Maybe, just because these countries do not use any other salt, but the sea? Brought from Spain salt analyzed in Krakow, and found in her a lot of valuable microelements, including selenium. Study of chemical composition of salt before nobody was interested and not interested. Similarly, nobody had not previously been interested in the fact that food products are cleared from fat. It was known that it gives no calories, no important to the body elements, i.e. recognized bran useless, in full compliance with the science of the nineteenth century, Dr. Clive came to the conclusion that the human body has not had time to adjust to supply refined products that he still needed this "unnecessary ballast. If not enough people are suffering from constipation and various other diseases, such as ulcer in the digestive tract, diseases of the teeth, obesity and, as a consequence, even malignant diseases.
Dr. Clive wrote about this in numerous books and articles, but they remained unnoticed. He referred to Hippocrates, who are already over 400 years B.C. recommended bran as a means of purification of the stomach and intestines.
In 1917, Denmark was forced to start to bake bread from a flour of a rough grinding to maximise the use of the grain, as a result, the mortality rate in the country declined by 17 %.
All these discoveries Dr. Clive, most likely, would have been long forgotten... if no Dr. Denis Burkitt.
