The Race Based Gene Fallacy
In short, consistent with his findings that challenge the genetic theory of disease in general, Wallach finds no sound scientific basis to support the notion that Black genes are defective and place Blacks at greater risk of disease than Whites. To the contrary, he finds that the same kind of nutritional interventions that eliminate so-called “genetic” diseases in Whites work equally well to wipe out so-called “genetic” diseases in Blacks. In other words, Blacks and Whites are equal and the deciding factor on whether individuals of either race contract disease are predicated on environmental factors, like one’s diet, supplement programs, and not DNA.
When Wallach evaluates the dietary choices of Black patients, he often finds that they, like Whites, suffer from poor dietary choices and little or no supplementation, revealing individuals of both races deficient in the 90 nutrients that Wallach has found essential to maintenance of optimal health.
Wallach finds the same illnesses affecting Whites and Blacks and stemming from nutritional deficiencies in both races. In short, Blacks are not a different genetic species than Whites; Blacks are not possessed of gene defects. Whites and Blacks are biological equals and the nutritional influences on genetic expression responsible for greater predispositions to disease in Whites are precisely the same ones in Blacks. According to Wallach, the Black gene theory of disease is nothing more than a racist lie.
With the help of genetic councilor Phil Oliver of the Sickle Cell Foundation of Georgia, Dr. Joel Wallach critically tested his theory about the absence of a genetic foundation for a conventionally classified race based disease, sickle cell anemia. According to the conventional wisdom, sickle cell disease is a hereditary blood disorder wherein red blood cells become flattened and sickle-like in shape. When the cells so form in abundance, they trigger adverse symptoms ranging from chronic propensity to contract disease to infections, extraordinary pain, strokes, and even death. The common view is that those with sickle cell disease contracted the condition from defective genes inherited from parents who were carriers of the trait.
Beginning in 1991, Wallach provided the full spectrum of 90 essential nutrients and added selenium to children afflicted with the disease who are under the care of the Sickle Cell Foundation of Georgia. The results were remarkable. The nutritional intervention prescribed by Dr. Wallach, when applied, caused a substantial number of the patients to go into remission. All experienced improvements in their quality of life, and none so treated experienced the extraordinary pain associated with sickle cell “attacks” that otherwise afflicted them. In short, Wallach’s experiment proved sickle cell anemia not hopeless but treatable and perhaps ultimately provably preventable with nutritional intervention.
After the year 2000, Wallach proposed that sickle cell anemia is an inborn error of metabolism. When the hemoglobin forming mechanism was being constructed in the fetal bone marrow, the mother was deficient in nutrients resulting in a defective bone marrow forming system.
