The term” laminin” has recently been circulating the internet through emails and other forms of dispersement due mainly to the unique configuration of the laminin itself, which forms a Christian cross. Several high-profile ministers have been discussing and promoting it due to this unusual form. But the actual laminin family itself is a cellular lifeform, without which we could not survive.
In 1929 a Canadian doctor, Dr. John Ralston Davison, theorized that an injected extract from fertilized hen eggs might be helpful for some of his cancer patients and he spent over a decade researching and developing this theory. However, when Dr. Davidson passed away in 1943, his research on fertilized hen eggs virtually died with him.
Some 50 years later another doctor in Norway named Bjodne Eskeland revived the research by Dr. Davidson and again began to research fertilized hen egg extract. Dr. Eskeland found that partially incubated, fertilized hen eggs contained a special combination of amino acids, protein fractions and peptides that could provide a combination of important health benefits when consumed by humans. In theory, 9-day-old fertilized eggs contain all the nutrients required to start new life which includes not only vitamins, minerals and proteins, but more importantly defense factors, growth factors, hormones and other biologically active components. Although not much was known about the growth factor at the time, the high level of oligopeptides (small peptides) supported research done on the necessity of rapid transit, the amino acids and peptides transported across the digestive membrane.
It is now well known, just as Dr. Davidson discovered nearly a century ago, that Laminins are an integral part of the structure of nearly every tissue in an organism, and are vital for the maintenance and survival of tissues scientifically referred to as a family of glycoproteins. Defective laminins can cause muscles to form improperly, leading to forms of muscular dystrophy as well as other types of muscular dysfunction. The amino acids and peptides found in laminin are vital for cellular life, and they cannot be manufactured by the body, which requires that they be obtained from the foods and nutritionals that we consume.
In recent years, the subject of stem cell research, which can provide successful therapy in some cases of cancer and other diseases, is very controversial, due to the necessity of using human fetuses for extraction purposes, but with Dr. Davidson’s and later Dr. Eskeland’s lab work, the usage of fertilized eggs makes that form of research and extraction unnecessary and resolves the moral dilemma associated with usage of human life form in order to make laminin available to the public as well as scientists.
Laminin promises to be a major breakthrough in the treatment and cure of many catastrophic illnesses.
