1110. Sunlight Struggle: Conquering the War on Vitamin D


There’s a war going on and it’s not just happening in Ukraine. It’s a war on truth, and when it comes to vitamin D there has been tremendous pushback. The pharmaceutical companies haven’t liked that physicians and researchers are saying that vitamin D may have been a huge help during the pandemic.

Dr. Martin says there are a lot of wars we’re losing. The war on cancer, we’re losing that one as cancer is worse than ever. The war on heart disease, we haven’t even made a dent. Heart disease is still the number one killer in North America.

Dr. Martin knows his listeners already see the wars happening around us, but it’s the rest of the world that’s still asleep.


Announcer:  You're listening to The Doctor Is In Podcast, brought to you by MartinClinic.com. During the episode, the doctors share a lot of information. As awesome as the info may be, it is not intended to diagnose, cure, treat, or prevent any disease. It's strictly for informational purposes.

Dr. Martin:  Well, good morning everyone, and once again, how are ya? Welcome to another live this morning. We appreciate it. Appreciate our audience all the time. We can't tell you enough how much you mean to us. Let's talk about war. Okay? It's wrong. We got a lot of wars going on. Nevermind just the Ukraine, okay? But there's been a war guys, especially in nutrition, on truth, okay? A real war. And as long as you understand that, as long as you understand there's a war going on, it really helps. Okay? We've talked about in the last couple of years, especially since the virus, there's been a tremendous pushback on vitamin D, a real war on vitamin D and it, it's at every level now. It's at the pharmaceutical level. They're pushing back. They don't like it that physicians and research people were saying, man, vitamin D might have been a huge help during the pandemic, would've been a huge help.

And guys, you know it. I said it on day one. On day one. You know where I was in day one? I was in Florida when they were shutting everything down, including the beaches. I was on the beach in Florida screaming like John the Baptist. Guys, I took virology, okay? And day one in virology, you know what you learned? The best thing for a virus is to get in the sun. Literally, the police came. It was like a scary scene from like a movie you'd be watching, a disaster movie or whatever, a scary scene. The police coming to tell us they were closing the beaches. Like I was not only getting a migraine because of the stupidity of it, it was asinine. I was beside myself. I said, surely they're not doing that. So there was a big war, and that war started on vitamin D.

I was the guy saying, Canadians, of course you couldn't travel. Anyway, come down to Florida and sit on the beach and you got nothing to worry about when it comes to covid. You can actually sit beside each other. You know that six foot thing was craziness, wearing a mask for a virus. Now you got smoke in the air. If there was any time you could wear a mask. Now a mask was made for smoke, not for a virus. Oh, anyway, guys, look, I know I'm opinionated, but I'm telling you, you guys have been following me. I've been consistent. Now, I didn't want to get sidetracked, but there's a war. And listen, people are going to try and scare you, skinny, to stop vitamin D, or at least be very careful because you are going to die if you take vitamin D. It's so toxic, and yet there's no one, and I mean no one sitting in the emergency rooms of Canada or the United States because, oh, I know why you're here. You got too much vitamin D.

Sit in the sun, no sunscreen for 20 minutes. Expose your arms and legs especially, and you are going to get 10,000 IUs. That's a fact. Why do you think I named the book Sun? I started with that, steak and steel, but there's a war going on. As long as you know about it, you'll be alright. Don't buy it. But the world out there, a lot of them buy it. If it's on the news, must be true. And that's the way they operate their whole lives. They don't think past it. And like I said, vitamin D would've kept, and this is guys, this is not me saying it. This is research proving them. Had people been given vitamin D during the pandemic and would've given him immunity like you would not believe. Anyway, that ship has sailed, and I understand that, but it's not any less infuriating for me to have to report what went on, get in behind the scenes. This is what this program does. Go behind the scenes and see why they're doing it and see how they're doing it. There's a big war going on that's on vitamin D.

There's another war going on, okay? And this war, there's been a war on cancer. President Nixon in the 1970s declared war on cancer. We're going to get to the bottom of it. We're going to win the war on cancer, said the president. I remember it like it was yesterday. Was I skeptical even in the seventies? Listen, cancer's complicated. Okay? It is. Cancer's complicated, but here's what we know. Cancer feeds on sugar, okay? It's complicated. How you get it, It's complicated. But you know me, I've been so consistent about teaching, teaching, teaching, teaching. Listen, lower growth hormones, insulin is a growth hormone. Estrogen is a growth hormone. Lower those hormones. Horrormones lower them because they're growth hormones. Get your vitamin D up. It's important for your immune system. Like I said, cancer's complicated.

But when they're looking, and guys, here we are today, 2023, the war on cancer, you can't win it with this strategy. You can't because there's no talk since the declaration that we ought to throw away our cigarettes. That was a good thing, guys. I agree with that. A million percent throw away the cigarettes. Out, out, out, out, out, out, out. We did a good thing, and a lot of people got the memo. Not everybody. Now they're encouraging, at least in Canada, encouraging marijuana. Oh, guys, you have no idea how that drives me insane. Okay? Not because it's just a gateway drug. A lot of people start smoking that stuff. Taking a trip without leaving the farm. Oh, I can't handle it. But the war on cancer, the biggest mistake in my opinion, okay? Because they don't talk about nutrition at all.

As a matter of fact, if you get cancer, they give you Boost. You're taking treatments and you can't eat very well. Here's some Boost. Here's some Ensure, ensuring that you're going to die from this cancer. Imagine cancer feeds on sugar, and then they give it to you on steroids. They give you sugar on steroids. You know what sugar on steroids means? You drink sugar. Worst thing you can do, I mean, sugar is bad. It suppresses your immune system. I talked to you about that in the Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 1973. One can of soda will put your immune system to sleep for five hours. Your white blood cells are in a coma. Your white blood cells that fight cancer go into a coma for five hours, a can of Coke or a glass of orange juice. What's the difference? Or Ensure? Or Boost? It's feeding the cancer plus a double whammo, it's putting the immune system in a coma.

Guys, you might think I'm angry. You're right. I'm angry about it. The war on cancer. How can you win this war with stupidity? I think I've met two in my lifetime of practice, oncologists that knew anything about nutrition that ever tied cancer with nutrition. I think I've met two of them. Guys, you got a war on vitamin D, you got a war on cancer. We're losing, cancer's worse than ever. And another reason we're losing the war on cancer is cause we're not into prevention. We're into detection of cancer. And I'm not against detection of cancer, don't get me wrong. But if you wait til you get cancer and they detect it, well, doesn't it make sense that we should try and prevent it before we get it? But the whole industry, the cancer industry is set up on a premise of early detection, not prevention, detection. Because if they were into prevention, they'd be talking about vitamin D. They would be talking about eliminating sugar. I mean, for heaven's sakes, they know what a pet scan is. How does it even operate a cancer detector? You need sugar to even operate the machine, the imaging.

I remember telling an oncologist that one day because she would mad at me. She was mad at me. Who do you think you are? I said, listen, Linda, her name wasn't Linda. I sent that patient to you. Well, she didn't know that. I said, yeah, well, I referred that patient to you. I suspected that she had cancer. And she was upset. Cause I had talked to that patient about nutrition and she couldn't see the connection. What's nutrition got to do with breast cancer? She's mad at me. I said, doc, I referred that patient to you. Okay? Don't get mad at me. And I had to remind her. I said, we have it here in our hometown in Sudbury. We have a PET scan. I said, doc, how do you like that new imaging? She said, oh, it's great. It really is. I said, how does it work? What? It's imaging? I said, no, no, no. How does it work? She didn't know. I said, well, they give them glucose. They give them a cup of sugar. Drink it before we put you in the machine or IV glucose. I said, doc, why? Again? I don't know. I said, because if you have cancer, you'll light up like a Christmas tree, whether it's in your brain or your toes. Cause sugar's going to go right to the site. Why? Because cancer needs fuel.

The war. The war on vitamin D, the war on cancer, losing, losing. The war on heart disease. We're losing that. Still the number one killer. There and cancer, they're neck and neck coming around the curve, they're neck and neck, heart disease, not better. Cancer's not better in spite of the kazillions of dollars. It's a pet peeve of mine, by the way, is cancer societies. Wear pink ladies for breast cancer. I think we should be wearing black. We're losing breast cancer's worse than ever. Wear pink. Why? Where's the money going? Where's the money going? The war on cancer, Dr. Martin, they come to my door to raise money or whatever, and I go, well, I don't think we should be wearing pink. I think we should be wearing black because we're losing. I know you guys mean well. You know these poor volunteers. They don't know. I said, did you guys ever look at your financial statements? They're online. 90% of the money doesn't go to research. It goes for marketing and salaries.

How about we do a research study on vitamin D? How about we do a research study sponsored by the Cancer Society? Let's eliminate sugar and let's see what happens. Well, good luck with that. Good luck with that. Guys, the war, there's a war going on. You better get in behind the scenes and understand what's happening and people are dying as a consequence. It's a huge, huge industry. And I'm not saying this. Please don't come at me and tell me that Dr. Martin said that people don't care in those industries. I didn't say that. And I mean it. It's not that they don't care. It's that they're being duped. They're being duped, and they can't think outside the box. They're programmed almost like zombies to carry the same message. We're going to win the war on cancer. Well, holy moly, since the 1970s, to me, if my math is correct, we're up to 50 years now, half a century, and it's worse than ever.

I'm not negative, guys. I'm just telling you the truth. Somebody stopped me on the street the other day that knows me. Can you talk to my friend whose son is dying of an aggressive cancer? Like, listen. Well, once that's happening, like that is so sad, guys. I'm a people person. I just breaks my heart when I hear stuff like that. I'm a people person and I don't say anything. Say, yeah, get them to call me. I mean, do everything you can. I'll show them what I would recommend them to do, but I would much rather get that cancer early or before. And we're seeing all these aggressive cancers. Sad, but nobody talks about prevention. There's a war going on. It's not just in the Ukraine, my friend. There's a war going on, okay? There's a war going on on vitamin D. There's a war going on on cancer. There's a war going on on heart disease. It's a war. This war has been going on for a long time.

It's a war on fat. There's a war on meat. Meat and the environment. This is the new twist, though. Meat is bad for the environment. Watch it for Bill Gates to the medical associations. Yeah, meat, you better just cut back on meat. We all know how bad it is for you. It's bad for your heart cause it's got cholesterol. It's bad for cancer because meat causes cancer. Cause it makes you acidic. Do you see my blood pressure going up when I hear stuff like that? Can you see it? Is it visible? Meat, the war on meat. They want you to eat their meat, crickets. You know what guys? For me and you guys, you don't buy it. Okay? I've been teaching you for years the disconnect between meat and heart disease. It's a disconnect because it doesn't connect at all. It's sugar, it's crappy carbohydrates. It's the growth hormones of insulin. I've been teaching you that so that when you see the war going on in the news, in the mainstream stuff, you are well equipped. You go, nah, that's not true.

When someone tells you not to eat meat, run. I get a lot of feedback, guys. Okay? Which I appreciate. I want your feedback. We invite your feedback. Somebody said, Dr. Martin, what about the Daniel Diet? Okay? They know I read the Bible. I said, well, read it again. Go to Daniel chapter one, and you'll find out that Daniel, for a couple of weeks, he avoided meat. But you know why? Because that Babylonian meat was sacrificed to idols. And as a good little Jewish boy, he didn't want that. You're not made to eat plants alone. You're just not. Your anatomy. We put out an email this morning on acidity in the stomach, and the problem in the world is you either use it or you lose it. The war going on on meat. You're supposed to eat meat. You're not a cow. A cow eats grass, so you don't have to, okay? Let the cows eat the salad. Okay? If you want to have a little bit of salad, but cows are meant to eat salad. They got four stomachs for it. You don't. You're meant to eat meat.

And a human being's acidity in the stomach is so stinking low. It's high acidity, but the pH of it, I mean, okay, is very low. It's lower than a lion's. What? Yep. And the lion lives on meat, but we have a very low, low, low acidity. Okay? Acid. You got to have a low pH. I mean very high acid. And the problem in our world is because there's a war on meat, there's a war on cholesterol, there's a war on it. People are eating the wrong foods. I always tell my little vegetarian friends, I used to get hundreds of them in the office, especially young generation, and I love young people. If I'd have known grandchildren or that much fun, I'd have had 'em first. I love my grandchildren, but they're being duped. They go to school and well, you know what? Meat's bad for the environment. And meat's got cholesterol and meat is acidic. And then medical schools teach it. Dieticians teach it. Well, we got to eat the Canada's food guide. Oh yeah. Well, okay. Look at our population and see how stinkin’ sick we are.

The proof in the pudding is when you don't eat meat and you live on carbs or you're a vegetarian, you know what? They eat 10 times more grains and wheat than they should. Man, I used to test for that. We don't buy it, so I want it today. I know it's philosophical, but I just want it to bring to you, let's get in behind the scenes and understand what's happening here. And when you get all that negativity above vitamin D, when you get all that negativity above meat and even eggs, they'll give you a few eggs, but limit it. And there's a real war going on dairy too, to eliminate dairy. Don't ditch dairy. Switch dairy. Don't ditch it. Now you tell the farmers out there, okay? Give them a message from Dr. Martin. They owe me. You tell 'em that I'm the farmer's best friend. I'm telling you, my friend, the war on farmers has started. Watch the news. The war on farmers coming to a theater near you, getting behind the scenes. That's what's happening. Yep. That's what's happening. Okay, let me breathe. I just took a deep breath. You know what tomorrow is? Question and answer Friday, get your questions in. We appreciate it. We love you, more than you know. Okay, talk to you soon.
