  16. 16. INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT WHEAT GRASS!!<br />in 50 yearsover 500.000 glassesof wheatgrass juice have been consumed at Hippocrates institute alone.<br />15 pounds(~7kg)of wheat grass is equal in overall nutritional value to 350 pounds (~160kg) of ordinary garden vegetables. We have not even scratched the surface of what grass can mean to man in the future.<br />”—Dr. Charles Schnabel, Father of Wheat Grass Therapy<br />Wheatgrasscontains at least13 vitamins(several are antioxidants),includingB12, manymineralsand trace elements, including selenium,and17 aminoacids(includingall8 essentialaminoacids), the hormone abscisic acid, the antioxidant enzymeSOD (SuperoxideDismutase) and over 30 otherenzymes,the antioxidant enzymecytochromeoxidaseage),and a whole lot of othernutrients<br />"In a studyreported in thejournalMutationResearchcomparingtheanticancereffectof chlorophyllto beta-carotene, andvitamins A, C and E, chlorophyllwasproventobe a more effectiveantimutagenthanany of them."<br />"Both chlorophyll(as in wheatgrass juice) andhemoglobin(redbloodcells) are molecularlysimilar.The only actual differenceisthatthe central element in chlorophyllismagnesiumandinhemoglobin it isiron. Chlorophyllhastheabilityto break downpoisonous carbon dioxideandreleasefreeoxygen.”<br />

EVEN NASA STUDIES IT !!<br />Moon Status: Researchers at the University of Arizona are operating a moon-farm prototype that yields 1100 pounds of edible plants per year. <br />Earth Orbit: Plants in micro­gravity draw up water and fertilizer faster than roots can process them. Status: Russians on the International Space Station developed the technique by growing radishes, peas and barley. <br />Mars Status: Italy's space agency is designing greenhouses that can endure Mars's low-pressure, high-carbon-dioxide environment.Read more: Lunar Greenhouse Technology - NASA Space Farming - Popular Mechanics.<br />
