Okay, this is a long winded yet simple question. I'll start off by prefacing why I'm asking this.
- Dolphins are mammals, like us humans and they need water to survive, but like humans, can't drink seawater. Dolphins get all the water they need from the food they eat, fish.
- McDonalds gets a bad rap on their food. People have made fun of the fact that mcdonald's food never decays, it could be in your back-seat for a week and you'd think it was from breakfast. McDonalds responded to this by saying
Bacteria and mold only grow under certain conditions. For example, without sufficient moisture - either in the food itself or the environment in which it is held - bacteria and mold and associated decomposition, is unlikely. If food is/or becomes dry enough, it won't grow mold or bacteria. In fact, any food purchased from a restaurant or grocery store or prepared at home that lacks moisture would also dehydrate and see similar results if left in the same environment.
Basically saying that they do an exceptional job of removing any water from the food products.
- Dr. Francis Pottenger from Pottenger's cats did some studies, if you aren't familiar with them check here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRR8V2v8h5U
Later he promoted a Hydrophilic Colloid Diet where he specifically advocates gelatin (This one is a great read and was very hard to find): http://www.ppnf.org/about-ppnf/about-drs-price-and-pottenger/11-mainsitecontent/resources-section/50-hydrophilic-colloidal-diet .
- Please don't flame me for this but Jack Kruse has a 66 page blog post here: http://www.jackkruse.com/emf-7-quantum-prometheus/ , where he seems to think that an intracellular water loss is responsible for very bad things in the human condition.
So my question then is:
What is the relevance of a Hydrophilic Colloid Diet in the human condition if any?
(Note: Hydrophilic means attracted to water).

This is one of those questions that requires a national research grant. Like $500,000 apiece to each of several research teams. Assuming no one has done the studies.
Preferably upon a prison population.

I'm sorry but as soon as someone starts bringing up quantum mechanics when talking about biochemistry, I lose all respect. It's true biology is really biochemistry which is really chemistry which is really physics which is really quantum mechanics; however, you use the level of abstraction for the science you're working with. Going to a more deep level of detail just confuses the problem. (And, yes I am a quantum mechanic.)
That 66 page blog post (I quit reading after page 1) is just a bunch of woo and trying to sounds smart.
