It is said by experts that 90% of the human life depends on oxygen as it regulates virtually all body functions. It gives cells energy to regenerate. Metabolism cannot take place in its absence. The sufficient presence of it is needed if toxins and waste elimination through oxidation must take place. Information in the brain cannot be processed without its aid. Even talking, sleeping, eating, moving, feeling, and thinking cannot be done without the energy that comes from it.
It has been proven that one way to stop the growth of cancer cells is to ensure that the body is not deprived of it, in sufficient amount. In other words the chief cause of cancer can be traced to its deficiency in cell respiration.
Achieving optimum health requires cleansing oneself of toxic substance and revitalizing ones body energy, a feat that can only be attain through the ingestion of it, in sufficient amount, into the body.
The constant need for it cannot be overemphasised because all body functions will be extinct without it. Provision must be made for the immediate replacement of it, when used up, in the body if the individual is to continue with life.
The loss of the immune system which can be said to be the source of health problems like nerve deterioration, seizures, aids, leukaemia and cancer is heavily linked to its shortage in the blood. Its deficiency has been described as the greatest singular cause of disease. Areas of the body with poor supply of it are good breeding grounds for most diseases including fungal or yeast infections.
It is a known fact that when it is deficient in the body, toxin gains grounds which undermine body functions and sap the body of vital life giving energy. Being a powerful detoxifier and when in sufficient amount in the body, ensures that useless substances like debris, refuse, toxins, garbage , and rubble are destroyed and flushed out of the body system. Individuals without enough amount of it in their system will experience these initial symptoms: fatigue, weakness, circulation problems, muscle aches and pains, poor digestion, depression, dizziness, irrational behaviour, memory loss, acid stomach, bronchial complications and irritability.
Many health problems and diseases are also cause by the decrease in it amount in the atmosphere. At a time in the past, its content in the atmosphere was approximately 50% but with increased toxins, pollution, and destruction of natural oxygen producers like rain forest, its amount in the atmosphere today is less than 20%. In areas that are overpopulated, its level is lower.
We all know that a human being can survive without food for weeks; even as important as water is , we can do without it for days and still live but it only take few minutes without it for a man to become a corpse.
On average a human being takes approximately twelve breaths in one minute and the rate varies base on the body desires at different times. However, if very little of it and too much carbon dioxide is supply, the body may gasp for air. Such situation may occur during an asthma attack, strenuous exercise or in fright. Failure to correct this anomaly may have serious health consequences. This shows how important this gas is to man.
