Biological Transmutations by Professor Louis C Kervran (English translation by Michel Abehsera) is an investigation into the possible natural changing of elements into different forms by life forms such as animals and plants.
Biological Transmutations book
The original French version of the Biological Transmutations book by Corentin Louis Kervran was published a long time ago in 1962. Kervran wrote a number of follow up books. Michel Abehsera combined C L Kervran's books into an English version that was published in 1972.
Topics covered include the natural transmutations of Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium and other subjects like Agriculture and Medicine.
What came first? The chicken or the calcium?
The classic examples that triggered previous investigation over the centuries are where does the limestone (mainly calcium carbonate) come from when it is found inside an incubating egg, the chicks skeleton and its shell - also the amount of lime excreted by hens? Especially if the Hens are on non limestone rock or soil or fed any calcium?
My parents had a few chickens which they kept in a chicken coop adjoining a yard. We lived in Brittany, France where my father worked as a government official. The area was full of slate rock and granite, but absolutely devoid of limestone. Limestone was never given to the chickens, yet every day during the egg laying season they laid eggs with calcareous shells.
At that time I had not yet asked myself from where the limestone came, but I was intrigued to observe that when the chickens were let loose in the yard, they scratched about incessantly for fragments of mica strewn on the ground. (Mica is one of the components of granite, along with quartz and feldspar; all are components of silica. This is all I knew then when I was in elementary school.)
I noticed this neat choice that had been made by the chickens, when the sun shined after a rain: well washed off, these hundreds of visible fragments looked like tiny mirrors. The imprints of the chickens' beaks were easy to follow. No one could explain to me why chickens scratched mica and not sand.
Whenever a chicken was killed I observed my mother opening the gizzard and finding small grains of sand, but never mica. Where did this mica go? Into the stomach? Why was this mineral swallowed by the chicken?
Corentin Louis Kervran quote from Biological Transmutations
Ninety-seven percent of the egg shell consists of calcium carbonate. The shell weighs approximately 6.0 g, so almost 6.0 g of calcium carbonate must be synthesized and deposited on the shell each time the hen produces an egg. For many hens, this is almost daily for long sequences.
Calcium carbonate is 40% calcium, thus about 2.5 g of elemental calcium must be found and transported to the shell gland in the 18-20 hours it takes to form the egg shell. The calcium content of blood at any given time is no more than 30 mg. Thus the shell contains over 80 times more calcium than the content of the blood.

Electric Geology transmutations?
The ideas in the book may have relevance to Electric Universe geology in regards to the chemical nature and transformations of the Earths material but also especially the chapter 'Production of Calcium from Silicon'.
Where does all the Earths chalk and limestone come from? Is it a natural transmutation of silica through Electric Universe geology processes?
On the Venusian surface, nitrogen molecules are converted to carbon monoxide molecules by a catalytic nuclear reaction in the presence of red-hot iron. The brilliant French chemist, Louis Kervran, when investigating carbon monoxide poisoning of welders, discovered this surprising nuclear transformation.
