Renegade Health Researcher and Proponent of Organic Sulfur in the diet


As a proponent of Fresh Bee Pollen, TBV Host, Steven Breitbach occupies a post on the fringe of modern culture.  From this vantage point he encounters those rare individuals who are planted even further out on the fringe.  Enter renegade medical researcher, Patrick McGean founder of The Cellular Matrix Study and proponent of organic sulfur in the daily diet.  Organic Sulfur is an essential mineral that has been removed from the food supply as a result of the enforced use of petro-chemical fertilizers in commercial agriculture.   McGean joins Steven to discuss his research project which includes over 400,000 participants worldwide who report astounding results.

Certified Permaculture Designer, Ryan Anthony joins Steven Breitbach to discuss the emergence of a global movement toward alternative food production methods known as Permaculture Farming.

Permaculture farming is scaleable for urban environments, thus providing habitat for urban bees. The implications for locally produced, decentralized food production, within an urban environment is discussed.
