Hi Myra, regarding Brian Clement. He recommends a low fat, high carb vegan diet (lower in fruit, too). The algaes are part of his diet, but that is not essential to the Ann Wigmore way.
He says algaes can repair DNA and maybe that's true. He looks fantastic.
I don't partake of them, as advised to me by Tom Rodgers, my vegan mentor. He claims they are not vegan. I try to err on side of caution.
I talked to Brian Clement about Tom's idea that they could trigger auto immune conditions and he said, "is this your friend or enemy?" (meaning, your friend is ruining your health).
Then, there's Lou who does not eat algaes, but he does eat seaweed.
I am in limbo, studying this topic before I commit to eating such things. I have found other sources for those nutrients, in the meantime.
I eat sprouts on my salads. I sprout all my nuts, seeds, grains, legumes first before eating. I eat raw mung sprouts and raw lentil sprouts (but I also eat them cooked too). I forage microgreens from my garden, as they sprout up.
So, what do you think about blue green algae? I have my own concern...if they are so essential to humans, then why do we need a scientist to test if it's not deadly before consumption? Why can't the average person determine that?
At least with mushrooms, a human can SEE what kind of mushroom it is, whether it's poisonous or edible, but our eyes can't determine about algae.
Then there's seaweed, that Tom says is the water filter of the ocean. He asked me, would you eat your water filter at home? no way.
yet, Mike adams the health ranger tested seaweeds and identified some that are safe.
I am still learning
