What's the deal with sulfur?

What’s the deal with sulfur (again)?

To review, sulfur is a most critical nutrient and some medical/health geology. It is as cholesterol sulfate that the steroid works its magic. Sulfur is, in fact, widely discussed in medical geology. Others discuss it in biodynamics, as the silky element, wise and enduring. Environmentalists call it one of our most serious pollutants (due to the volume). Chemists need it for virtually every reaction involving a change in pH. Ecologists invoke it in biogeochemical cycling – they find it in sedimentary cycles, locked in rock and utterly dependent on life-mediated processes for its release. For farmers, it is a prized ingredient in manure. But for Stephanie Seneff, it is the greatest antibody-clotting- glomming (my words) agent there is. It is a freeloader par excellence, and it is sorely needed in the blood so as to provide the negative charges needed to keep nutrients and medium (aka blood) moving freely. Its carboxyl (COOH-) groups that are more than willing to oblige. Seneff believes that the lack of sulfur in our diet is the main reason why we get sick and die, creaky and forgetful when we get older. Could its deficit be the cause of both cardiovascular and joint dysfunction? Alzheimer’s and other Central Nervous System compromise? Certainly, the sugar  (as a real-food0substitute) we consume on a daily basis doesn’t get us anywhere near our daily sulfur requirement.
