Getting enough fiber?

Trendy California nutritionists insist we need to eat more fiber, but is all fiber good for us? While food fiber is, not all fiber is food. Nevertheless, we may be eating it whether we realize it or not. Fibers are everywhere, notably in the air although most are invisible or rarely noticed. Chances are we are inhaling and possibly ingesting them.

In March 2014 I noticed what I thought was dandelion or some other plant seed drifting into my yard. It didn’t really look like anything ever seen before. It was very delicate, so I picked it up with tweezers (Fig. 1).

Upon closer examination, my specimen, one of a dozen or so I’ve collected since March, looked very different than a dandelion seed. It took awhile for me to perceive what I was looking at, but after I photographed it and examined it on my computer (Fig. 2), I determined that this was not a substance from nature. I began to wonder about smaller fibers I couldn’t see or notice, where they came from, and how they might be affecting my health and the health of others.

There are no known fiber factories in my city. I suspect they fell from the massive clouds of chemtrails we see in the sky everyday. These are my observations for early spring 2014.
