a] A STRAIGHT deficiency

Most deficiencies are induced and seldom come in "single" deficiencies.
PRINCIPLE No 5 [How to overcome a deficiency]
To increase "available" elemental levels there are two choices:
- CHANGE the availability of what is present or

*Adding elements includes a risk factor, due to the "desired" elements being accompanied or contaminated by unwanted
elements which can adversely interact with other elements or pollute / poison the living organism[s].
