In the first half, George Noory welcomed Dr. Joel Wallach, who discussed the human body's innate ability to heal itself through natural means and various minerals and supplements. Many diseases and ailments are the result of dietary deficiencies, particularly minerals and rare earth minerals, rather than genetic causes, he argued. In February 2015, the Journal of the American College of Nutrition wrote that 40% of Americans are deficient in four minerals and three vitamins, and to flourish (rather than just survive) people need as much as 2500 times the minimum daily requirement of many nutrients, he reported.
The environment of a person's stomach is important in terms of how nutrients are absorbed, and people will react quicker to supplement treatments, when they have good absorption, he explained. Cancer, he remarked, is not genetic and can be related to dietary causes such as cooking meat well-done, and consuming oxidized oils in such foods as salad dressings and rancid nut butters. The pharmaceutical industry, he added, is only designed to treat symptoms over a long period of time (except for antibiotics). "There's no money in the cure, so doctors always treat people for 25 years rather than cure them in three weeks," Wallach declared.
In the latter half, professor, author and researcher, Ken Hanson talked about the archaeology behind the trial of Jesus in Jerusalem, and clarified who was responsible for the crucifixion. The site of Jesus' trial is in the Old City of Jerusalem, at Jaffa Gate, he detailed. It's in an area along the wall of the Citadel, (built by the Ottoman Turks in the Middle Ages), which sits exactly on top of an ancient wall that comprised the palace of King Herod the Great. "We're sure that this is where Pontius Pilate would have presided when he was in Jerusalem," he noted (view Hanson's related video with archaeologist Shimon Gibson at the site).
There's an ancient stairway that led up to what was likely called the Essene Gate, which is where Jesus would have been brought out from a barracks area. There is much misunderstanding about who was involved in the crucifixion, said Hanson, who pointed out that the Jewish people didn't actually have the authority to crucify anyone, according to their ancient texts. And yet down through the ages, the Jews have mistakenly been blamed for Jesus' death, and this has led to a lot of antisemitism. Hanson also addressed controversies about the possible burial site of Jesus in Jerusalem, and ossuaries found at the tomb.
