Chemotherapy: Afraid of Their Own Medicine
In one survey, most oncologists specializing in lung cancer reported that they
would not take chemotherapy if they had the disease. Yet, everyday these doctors
give their patients chemotherapy. In conversation with an investigative reporter,
one brain cancer specialist admitted that he would never submit to radiation
if he had a brain tumor.
Nevertheless, he continues to send patients for radiation,
because he would be kicked out of the hospital if he didn't follow the accepted
protocol. Based on information in: Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients,
Jan 1998; Spectrum, Mar/April 1998
Radiation Sickness Symptoms
Radiation therapy damages cancer cells as well as healthy cells in the treatment area.
Radiation sickness is characterized by extreme fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting,
hair loss and skin reaction.
A person exposed to "fallout" can suffer from a myriad list of ailments,
among them thyroid cancer. Thyroid cancer, due to radiation poisoning, is caused
by the uptake (through inhalation or
ingestion) of radio-iodine (a radioactive
isotope of iodine). The Chernobyl reactor accident resulted in massive releases
of 131I and other radio-iodines.
Beginning approximately 4 years after the accident,
a sharp increase in the incidence of thyroid cancer among children and adolescents
in Belarus and Ukraine (areas covered by the radioactive plume) was observed.
In some regions, for the first 4 years of this striking increase, observed cases
of thyroid cancer among children aged 0 through 4 years at the time of the accident
exceeded expected number of cases by 30- to 60-fold. In the Federal Register
of December 15, 1978, FDA announced its conclusion that KI, a natural supplement,
is a safe and effective means by which to block uptake of radio-iodines by the
thyroid gland in a radiation emergency.
The immune system may take even
longer to recover than white blood cell production thus resulting in a susceptibility
to some bacterial, fungal and viral infections for weeks or months, including
Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia, herpes zoster infection, which commonly occurs
after high-dose chemotherapy.
Chemotherapy's Little Victim: a Testimonial
On August 10, 1998 at age two, our son Alexander Horwin was diagnosed with
the most common pediatric brain tumor, medulloblastoma. After Alexander endured
two brain surgeries my husband and I located the best non-toxic therapy that
had proven successful in treating brain cancer. However, on September 21, 1998,
the FDA denied Alexander access to this potentially life-saving treatment
. The oncologists told us that without their "state-of-the-art" chemotherapy,
the cancer would soon return. We knew nothing of the history, efficacy and actual
danger of chemotherapy but instinctively knew it was a poor choice for therapy.
Alexander completed his third month of chemotherapy in December 1998 and died
on January 31, 1999. He was just two and a half years old.
The "state-of-the-art" chemo protocol that the oncologists had administered
to our son had proven its ineffectiveness in pediatric brain tumors many years
before. In fact, in 1994, the exact same chemo drugs Alexander received in 1998
had been administered to children the same age with the same brain tumor (medulloblastoma)
as Alexander. This experiment proved so unsuccessful that tumors spread within
five months and the oncologists terminated the protocol. It was incredible to
us to discover that chemotherapy that had already proven so ineffective that
it required termination was being presented to parents as "state of the art"
We were never informed about the failure of this therapy
. We also discovered that we weren't the only parents being
purposefully misinformed. Today, parents are still being misled
and children with brain cancer are still getting these same toxic drugs that
have proven their ineffectiveness in the past. But even if you are informed
that orthodox therapy does not work you still may not have a choice. When we
hesitated to bring Alexander in for chemo the oncologists were already gearing
up to take him from us by court order.

Uranium Poisoning, Diabetes and Detoxing
The increased use of uranium compounds in industry, and more recently in warfare
in the form of depleted uranium, causes concern and a necessary look at
internal contamination with uranium and its toxicological consequences, both as a heavy
metal and as a radiological hazard. I became interested when my laboratory tests
came back this past year with all metals in the normal range EXCEPT uranium!
I began to wonder where am I getting uranium? With some digging for information,
it seems everyone in North America may be exposed to uranium. First, let's see
what uranium is and the sources.
Depleted Uranium trigger Global Diabetes Epidemic
The official could only have known about
the diabetes link to depleted uranium
from the U.S. State Department and the source of it all: the Lawrence Livermore
Nuclear Weapons Lab, "managed" for 61 years by the University of California.
The University of California nuclear
weapons labs are the core of the nuclear weapons program in the U.S., the
only remaining superpower. On May 29, Moret charged the University of California
and the Los Alamos and Livermore Nuclear Weapons Labs with engineering the largest
global increase of diabetes in history and trying to cover it up. Fine uranium
dust, vaporized into a poison radioactive gas by exploding uranium bombs, missiles
and bullets, hitches a ride on dry desert winds to circle the globe in days.
Dr. Chris Busby, a leading British radiation expert, got data from a nuclear
weapons air monitoring facility at Aldemaston, England, which identified depleted
uranium in the British atmosphere only nine days after the "shock and awe" carpet
bombing of Baghdad, started in March of 2003. The embassy official had just
let the cat out of the bag and confirmed the link between the global epidemic
of diabetes and the use of depleted uranium by the U.S.-U.K. expeditionary forces
in Iraq, Afghanistan and the former Yugoslavia.
Depleted uranium is a genocidal radioactive metal used for bullets, bombs
and missiles by the United States and Great Britain as munitions in Iraq, Afghanistan
and the former Yugoslavia. Millions of pounds of weaponized radioactive uranium
gas and dust have been dispersed by US/UK military forces in Iraq and Central
Asia. The use of uranium weapons has caused a global diabetes epidemic since
1991, according to scientist Leuren Moret. It is enough uranium dust to cause
an estimated twenty five million additional cancers in Iraq in the next decade.
The US and UK military still use uranium munitions. There are only 24 million
Iraqis. Many Iraqis now have multiple cancers.
Radiation Effects from Nuclear Disaster
The Fukushima nuclear plant meltdown disaster “is not over and will never end,”
warns Dr. Helen Caldicott, Nobel Peace Prize nominee and holder of 21 honorary doctorate degrees.
“Radioactive fallout which remains toxic for hundreds to
thousands of years will induce an epidemic of cancer as people inhale the
radioactive elements, eat radioactive food and drink radioactive beverages.
It is the greatest industrial accident in the Earth’s history.” Dr. Chris
Busby told the Japanese people that radioactive air contamination
there is now 300 times that of Chernobyl and 1000 times the atomic bomb peak
in 1963, inferring that hundreds of millions of people are now dying from Fukushima
radiation, including people in the United States. If noticing unusual amounts
of hair falling out, confusion, nose bleeds or other odd symptoms typical of
radiation sickness, it might be due to the United States record high levels
of radiation, now multiple times acceptable safety limits not only on the west
coast, but also in other locations around the nation.
March 13, 2011 -
Dr. David Brownstein, M.D. - "As the Japanese
nuclear reactors release radiation into the air, the jet streams will push this
radiation to the Western U.S. and Canada. There are estimates that the radiation
fallout will reach the Western side of N. American in six to ten days. Furthermore,
I have seen estimates that it is expected that 750 RADS may contaminate these
areas. How much is 750 RADS? One chest x-ray is approximately 3/100 RADS. One
CT scan is 1 RAD. The CDC recommends using iodine to prevent injury form radioactive
NOTE: I cannot verify the accuracy of Dr. Browsteins's figures. Shirley
One of the most carcinogenic nuclear fission products found in fallout is
radioactive Iodine (Iodine-131). Iodine-131 is very dangerous because the thyroid
gland readily absorbs it just as it would the natural, healthy form of iodine.
If humans or animals are deficient in iodine, they are at a substantially higher
risk of thyroid damage including thyroid cancer as a result of exposure to fallout.
Nuclear fallout literally “falls” from the sky and can eventually end up in
our soil, our water, and our food supply. While the Japanese are perhaps one
of the best prepared cultures for such a tragedy due to their high intake of
iodine from seaweed, the majority of others are not. The Japanese typically
ingest 100 times the amount of daily iodine as Americans.
Protection & Recovery From Radiation Harmful Effects
Food Based Iodine
According to iodine research Dr. Guy Abraham and Dr. David Brownstein, as
many as 96% of Americans are extremely deficient in iodine. Thankfully, there
is a simple step many of us are already taking to help boost the protective
benefits of iodine within the thyroid and literally ever cell within our body
If there is enough iodine in our bodies,
radioactive fallout is no longer able to concentrate in the thyroid and it will
simply pass through. This is just one of the many benefits of natural, food-based
iodine. It not only helps to ensure proper operation of the thyroid and our
entire endocrine system, it helps to protect this vital gland from the dangers
of radioactive fallout.
Nascent Iodine is a unique, readily assimilable, safe form of iodine that is rapidly
absorbed and used by the body when taken as a nutritional supplement. It is
associated with a wide range of benefits, not limited to supporting thyroid
function and regulating metabolism, boosting energy levels (when iodine is deficient),
supporting and maintaining detoxification systems and processes, supporting
immune system function, fighting infections (natural antiseptic), and many other
healthy benefits. Because of its antiseptic properties, it also can be used
effectively to purify water for drinking. One drop provides 400 micrograms of
Nascent Iodine in a base of organic grain alcohol.
Iodine Rich Sea Plants Health Benefits Aren't Just for Humans
Iodine rich seaweeds supplementation
for animals (and humans) can protect
against nuclear radioactive fallout and also promotes shiny hair coat
and supple skin - Healthier and stronger newborns - Improved milk
production in lactating bitches and queens - Improved reproductive
performance both for male and female - Aids in the healing process
by offering the vitamins and minerals necessary for tissue repair - Better utilization
and absorption of nutrients from foods ingested. Many pet owners, show dog
owners and other animal lovers are also feeding marine phytoplankton
Emerald Sea, a rich and rare natural source of iodine to their animals .

Iodine is the most abundant non-conservative, biophilic and redox-sensitive
trace element in the oceans.
Marine phytoplankton is
implied to play an important role in the iodine-evaporation from the ocean
into the atmosphere, iodine-migration to the sub-oceanic sediment and
iodine-supply to aquatic lower animals.
Dr. Jerry Tennant, M.D . says that
marine phytoplankton contains almost
everything one needs to sustain life and to restore health by providing the
raw materials to make new cells that function normally. Marine phytoplankton
has been called "the most nutritionally dense foods on the planet". Containing
a wide range of trace elements, omega-3 fatty acid, amino acids, vitamins, minerals,
chlorophyll, enzymes and cellular materials.
Glutathione and Thyroid Health
Dr. Jimmy Gutman on Glutathione and Radiation Damage : "Human
health can be adversely affected by exposure to radiation. This can come in
the form of simple sunlight, to x-Ray exposure and more ominously, fallout from
a failed nuclear reactor as seen currently in Japan. Tissue damage, whether
resulting in a sunburn or in thyroid cancer,... is caused by “ionizing” radiation.
What does this term mean? It describes the release of free radicals from the
molecules struck by the radiation. Raising glutathione levels protects cells
from damage by the most dangerous of free radicals (the hydroxyl-radical) released
when ionizing radiation hits us. Besides avoiding exposure to radiation, the
next best thing to consider is limiting the damage.
Our cells own protective mechanisms rely on glutathione
against diseases, toxins, viruses, pollutants, radiation and oxidative stress.
to do this." Glutathione is a master antioxidant , an important line of defense
Low glutathione levels are linked to diseases such as Cancer, Multiple Sclerosis,
AIDS, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Atherosclerosis, pregnancy complications, male
infertility and Cataracts. A Glutathione deficiency can cause a lack of coordination,
mental disorders, tremors, and difficulty maintaining balance. Glutathione is
continuously defending our body against attacks from disease, toxins, poisons,
viruses, pollutants, radiation and oxidative stress. Without Glutathione our
liver would soon become overwhelmed with the accumulation of toxins, resulting
in organ failure and death.
We know radiation exposure causes approximately 3% of all cancers. This fact
has been studied extensively. When you are exposed to radiation a very reactive
type of free radical is formed called a “hydroxyradical”. Studies have shown
glutathione’s (GSH) detoxification abilities play a key role in neutralizing
hydroxyradicals and cancer specialists are now raising glutathione (GSH) levels
in patients who are undergoing radiation therapy as part of
their cancer treatment. Detoxification benefits from boosted glutathione (GSH)
levels and helps cancer patients better tolerate their treatment. Studies have
also been done around the world, from Switzerland to Spain to India to Germany,
on the effect of glutathione (GSH) on radiation damage. Low levels of glutathione
(GSH) were connected with an increased risk of developing cancer from radiation
exposure. Patients undergoing cancer treatment experienced stronger side effects
and greater injury from radiation therapy when they had low glutathione (GSH) levels .
And white blood cells, the cells used by the immune system,
have been shown to be better able to withstand radiation therapy when cancer
specialists raised glutathione (GSH) prior to treatment. The implication here
is...glutathione (GSH) does and will, to a greater degree, play a major role
in the treatment of cancer by using detoxification to reduce the damaging effects
Radiation Detox Clay Bath
Nuclear fallout literally “falls” from the sky and can eventually end up in
our soil, our water, and our food supply. This silent killer is everywhere present
and we are daily exposed to it in our technical world and in our atmosphere.
Clay has been successfully for the extraction of radionuclides from human beings
and animals. Clay bath treatments can assist significantly in
addressing the removal process of radiation from the body. Radiation in excess
results in flu-like symptoms and definitely affects the throat or thyroid area
as other parts of the body. Sources: Computers, microwaves, electric blankets,
industrial pollution, nuclear plants, air pollution, x-rays, cell phones (causing
brain tumors), radiation therapy for cancer, televisions, airplane flights,
and of course nuclear bombs. Solar flares (which we have had more in recent
years). Microwave ovens change the molecular structure of food with radiation!
Associated Symptoms and Diseases: Anxiety, hysteria, insatiable hunger, feeling
of unreality, dizziness and vertigo, rheumatic pains, hearing problems, complete
exhaustion, extreme tiredness, mood swings, hot and cold flashes, loss of will
power, gastric distress, extreme headache, aches in the joints, memory loss,
sore throat and most of all ---flu-like symptoms.
News: "The toll of thyroid cancer carried by the fallout from the Chernobyl
nuclear disaster could have been prevented, new evidence suggests. And a British
cancer expert agrees that had a simple drug been given to young children in
the former Soviet Union who were in the path of the radioactive cloud which
covered much of Eastern Europe, much suffering could have been prevented. The
disaster, in 1986, happened when a reactor at Chernobyl, in the now-independent
state of Ukraine, melted down, throwing large quantities of radioactive isotopes
into the atmosphere. One of these, radioactive iodine, is absorbed by the thyroid
gland, particularly in very young children, where it can cause cancer, in some
cases many years later."

Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda)
The kidneys are usually the first organs to show chemical damage upon uranium
exposure. Old military manuals suggest doses or infusions of sodium bicarbonate to help alkalinize
the urine if this happens. This makes the uranyl ion less kidney-toxic and promotes excretion of the nontoxic uranium-carbonate
The oral administration of sodium bicarbonate diminishes the severity
of the changes produced by uranium in the kidneys. So useful and strong is sodium
bicarbonate that at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, researcher
Don York has used baking soda to clean soil contaminated with uranium. Sodium
bicarbonate binds with uranium, separating it from the dirt; so far, York has
removed as much as 92 percent of the uranium from contaminated soil samples.
I started writing about baking soda after discovering that the United States
Army recommends the use of bicarbonate to protect the kidneys from radiation
Radiation and Electromagnetics (ELF)
There are two types of radiation, according to Lita Lee, author of Radiation
Protection Manual. They are ionizing and non-ionizing radiation. The ionizing
radiation is more damaging because it is of a higher energy than non-ionizing
radiation and produces charged particles called ions, either negative ions (the
good "guys") or positive ions (the bad ones). Ionizing radiation is produced
from nuclear bombs, nuclear reactors, medical and dental x-rays, and is the
type of radiation used to irradiate food. The non-ionizing radiation includes
electromagnetic radiation produced by electric current, radio waves, microwave
ovens, radar stations, television (cathode ray tube), video display terminals
(VDT's) computers, high voltage lines, infrared and fluorescent lights, and
sunlamps (e.g. tanning booths which emit ultraviolet light).
Prior to 1996, the wireless age was not coming online fast enough, primarily
because communities had the authority to block the siting of cell towers. But
the Federal Communications Act of 1996 made it nearly impossible for communities
to stop construction of cell towers "even if they pose threats to public health
and the environment. Since the decision to enter the age of wireless convenience
was politically determined for us, we have forgotten well-documented safety
and environmental concerns and, with a devil-may-care zeal that is lethally
short-sighted, we have incorporated into our lives every wireless toy that comes
on the market. We behave as if we are addicted to radiation. Our addiction to
cell phones has led to harder "drugs" like wireless Internet. And now we are
bathing in the radiation that our wireless enthusiasm has unleashed. Those who
are addicted, uninformed, corporately biased and politically-influenced may
dismiss our scientifically-sound concerns about the apocalyptic hazards of wireless
radiation. But we must not. Instead, we must sound the alarm.
Cell Phones: Invisible Hazards in the Wireless Age
Insider's Alarming Discoveries About Cancer and Genetic Damage - Dr. Carlo's
research led to the discovery that human blood cells could be damaged by the
radiation emitted from a cell phone. "What you won't see are the microwaves
that are criss-crossing a confined space where a number of people who are not
even using these instruments are bombarded by these waves." There may be a link
between cell phone use and brain tumors. In 1994, Dr. Salford, a Swedish research
found significant leakage or breakdown in he blood brain barrier due to the effects
of microwaves. In 1996, Dr. Om Gandhi, from the university of Utah, did a study
and found that a five-year-old child absorbs four times as much radiation
as an adult. In 1998, research by Dr's. Ray Tice and Graham Hook showed that following
exposure to cell phone, there was a nearly 300 percent increase in the incidence
of genetic damage in blood cells.
Warning: Tincture of iodine and concentrated iodine widely sold for water purification are not safe for internal use.
The small typical one ounce bottle of tincture of iodine contains about one
tablespoon or approximately 30 ml of fluid. (The larger pint bottles contain
473 ml.) To a small child, ingesting the small 1 ounce bottle, even if well
diluted to make it palatable, could prove fatal. Everyone needs to understand
that all 'tincture of iodine' bottles are clearly marked "POISON" for a very
good reason. Ingesting elemental free iodine, such as 'tincture of iodine',
in quantities sufficient to attempt thyroid-blocking in a nuclear emergency
is not a safe, nor an effective, alternative.
Regarding ingesting (drinking/swallowing) iodine, iodine tablets (widely
sold for water purification), tincture of iodine, or Povidone-iodine solutions
(like the Betadine® brand solution): Cresson H. Kearny, the author of
War Survival Skills , Original Edition Published September, 1979, by Oak
Ridge National Laboratory, a Facility of the U.S. Department of Energy (Updated
and Expanded 1987 Edition) states on page 115: "Elemental (free) iodine is poisonous,
except in the very small amounts in water disinfected with iodine tablets or
a few drops of tincture of iodine. Furthermore, elemental iodine supplied by
iodine tablets and released by tincture of iodine dropped into water is not
effective as a blocking agent to prevent thyroid damage. If you do not have
potassium iodide , DO NOT TAKE IODINE TABLETS OR TINCTURE OF IODINE. Iodine
is normally used in doses of 8 PPM to treat clear water for a 10 minute contact
time. The effectiveness and safety of this dose has been shown in numerous studies.
As far back as 1953 in the study "Test of chronic toxicity of iodine as related
to the purification of water". U.S. Armed Forces medical journal, 1953, 4:725-728
Morgan DP, Karpen RJ., it was shown that: "No adverse health effects were reported
in men who drank water providing iodide at doses of 0.17-0.27 mg/kg of body
weight per day for 26 weeks" That works out to a reported safe ingestion of
elemental iodine via treated water of between 14 and 22 mg per day for an 180
lb adult. To attempt to achieve a thyroid-blocking dose of nearly 100 mg of
iodine (the iodine content of a 130 mg KI tablet) would thus require exceeding
that proven safe level by a factor of at least four to seven times for an 180
lb adult. And, this would be with potentially poisonous elemental free iodine
that is also claimed above by Cresson H. Kearny to be "...not effective as a
blocking agent to prevent thyroid damage."
USP tincture of iodine contains 2% iodine and 2.4% sodium iodide dissolved
in 50% ethyl alcohol and according to the National Academy of Sciences in Drinking
Water and Health. Vol. 3. Washington, DC, National Academy Press, 1980. Doses
of 30-250 ml of tincture of iodine (about 16-130 mg of total iodine per kg of
body weight) have been reported to be fatal.
At the time of the atomic bombing, Tatsuichiro Akizuki, M.D. was Director
of the Department of Internal Medicine at St. Francis's Hospital in Nagasaki
and he fed his staff and patients a strict diet of brown rice, miso and tamari
soy soup, wakame, kombu and other seaweed, Hokkaido pumpkin, and sea salt. He
also prohibited the consumption of sugar and sweets since they suppress the
By imposing this diet on his staff and patients, no one succumbed to radiation
poisoning whereas the occupants of hospitals located much further away from
the blast incident suffered severe radiation fatalities. Much of this positive
result has to do with the fact that the
sea vegetables contain substances
that bind radioactive particles and escort them out of the body. This is why
seaweed sales usually skyrocket after radiation disasters, and why various seaweeds
and algae are typically used to treat radiation victims.
In Chernobyl, for instance, spirulina was used to help save many children from
radiation poisoning. By taking 5 grams of
spirulina a day for 45 days,
the Institute of Radiation Medicine in Minsk even proved that children on this
protocol experienced enhanced immune systems, T-cell counts and reduced radioactivity.
Israeli scientists have since treated Chernobyl children with doses of natural
beta carotene from Dunaliella algae
and proved that it helped normalize their blood chemistry.
a known immune system builder and heavy metal detoxifier, has also shown radio-protective
effects. Because they bind heavy metals, algae should therefore be consumed
after exposure to any type of radioactive contamination.
In 1968 a group of Canadian researchers at McGill University of Montreal,
headed by Dr. Stanley Skoryna, actually set out to devise a method to counteract
the effects of nuclear fallout. The key finding from their studies was that
sea vegetables contained a polysaccharide
substance, called sodium alginate, which selectively bound radioactive strontium
and eliminated it from the body.
Sodium alginate is found in many seaweeds, especially
kelp, and since that time the
Russians have been seriously researching the use of their own kelps from Vladivlostok,
from which they have isolated the polysaccharide U-Fucoidan, which is another
radioactive detoxifier. Because miso soup was so effective in helping prevent
radiation sickness, the Japanese have also done research identifying the presence
of an active ingredient called zybicolin, discovered in 1972, which acts as
a binding agent to also detoxify and eliminate radioactive elements (such as
strontium) and other pollutants from the body.
The kelps and algaes aren't the only natural foods with radio-detoxifying
effects. In terms of fluids to drink, black and green tea have shown "radioprotective
effects" whether consumed either before or after exposure to radiation. This
anti-radiation effect was observed in several Japanese studies, and studies
from China also suggest that the ingredients in tea are radioactive antagonists.
In short, after any sort of radioactive exposure you want to be eating seaweeds
and algaes along with almost any type of commercial heavy metal chelating formula
to bind radioactive particles and help escort them out of the body. Whether
you're worried about depleted uranium, plutonium or other isotopes, this is
the wise thing to do which can possibly help, and certainly won't hurt. Many
nutritional supplements have been developed for the purpose of detoxifying heavy
metals, most of which contain the algaes and plant fibers and other binding
substances. Basically, an anti-radiation diet should focus on the following
· Miso soup
· Spirulina, chlorella and the algaes (kelp,
· Brassica vegetables and high beta carotene vegetables
· Beans and lentils
· Potassium, calcium and mineral rich foods
· High nucleotide content foods to assist in cellular repair including
spirulina, chlorella, algae, yeast,
sardines, liver, anchovies and mackerel
Yet another benefit of the sea vegetables rarely discussed is their high
mineral content, which is a bonus in the case of radioactive exposure. Consuming
natural iodine, such as in the seaweeds, helps prevent the uptake of iodine-131
while iron inhibits the absorption of plutonium-238 and plutonium-239. Vitamin
B-12 inhibits cobalt-60 uptake (used in nuclear medicine), zinc inhibits zinc-65
uptake and sulfur is preventative for sulfur-35 (a product of nuclear reactors)
incorporation by the body.
Since nuclear workers are potentially exposed to radioactive sulfur, this
means that workers in the atomic power industry need a higher content of sulfur
in their diet. MSM supplements provide a source of dietary sulfur, but thiol
supplements such as cysteine, lipoic acid and glutathione serve double-duty
in this area because they help detoxify the body and attack all sorts of other
health problems as well.
Depleted uranium is currently in the journalistic spotlight because US weapons
are made from this material, and after being fired leave a legacy of depleted
uranium dust in the environment, which anyone can absorb. Because the kidneys
are usually the first organs to show chemical damage upon uranium exposure,
military manuals suggest doses or infusions of sodium bicarbonate to help alkalinize
the urine if this happens. This makes the uranyl ion less kidney-toxic and promotes
excretion of the nontoxic uranium carbonate complex.
In areas contaminated by depleted uranium dusts, it therefore makes sense
to switch to drinking slightly alkaline
water and to favor a non-acidic diet to assist in this detoxification. Any
of the heavy metal detoxifiers, such as miso soup, chlorella, spirulina and
seaweeds, are also commonsense warranted.
Another thing you can do is use homeopathics
for radiation exposure. People commonly argue over whether homeopathics work
or not, but if you assume the position that they produce no results whatsoever
then you must also assume that they certainly won't hurt you, which means the
only loss from using them is a few dollars. Frankly, there are countless cases
and double-blind studies where homeopathic tinctures do provoke physical healing
effects in the body. Therefore they are a viable adjunct treatment option. One
homeopathic, in particular, is URANIUM NITRICUM (nitrate of uranium) which homeopaths
suggest should be used in cases of depleted uranium exposure or uranium poisoning.
Not just soldiers or civilians exposed to battlefield dusts, but uranium miners
and radiation workers may find it quite useful.
While we've discussed just a few of the many supplements and protocols you
can use to help detox the body of the lingering results of radioactive contamination,
including the residues of depleted uranium, the last thing that might be of
interest is that there is a plant that is a natural Geiger counter. The spiderwort
plant is so sensitive to changes in radiation levels (its petals change color
upon exposure) that it's often used as a natural radiation detector (dosimeter),
just as they use canaries in mines as detectors of poisonous gas. Some people
like knowing that they have an ongoing monitoring system for radiation in the
environment, and this is just another tip available in "How to Neutralize the
Harmful Effects of Radiation or Radioactive Exposure."
Radiation is the Silent Killer that is found almost everywhere
"This silent killer is everywhere present and we are daily exposed to it
in our technical world and in our atmosphere. We have special herbs and spices
in this formula specifically addressing the removal process of radiation from
the body. Radiation in excess results in flu-like symptoms and definitely affects

Clays are particularly known for their ability to remove toxic metals from
the air, water, and soil because of their unusual structure of “pores” (channels
and holes) that allows them to absorb huge amounts of contaminant materials.
Toxic gases, chemicals, mold, heavy metals, and other toxins are drawn by the
natural negative electrical charge into the crystal micro pores of the clay.
The unique structure of clay provides literally millions of pores or sieves
- “shape-selective catalysts” - that catch only molecules small enough to fir
into the cavities while excluding larger molecules.
The unique structure of clays therefore gives them unusual filtering capabilities
for absorbing toxic wastes, including radioactive contaminants. In just one
gram of Zeolite clay, for instance, the three dimensional structure of the channels
in its crystalline structure provide up to several hundred square meters of
surface area on which absorption (and channel reactions) can take place. The
Zeolites are particularly useful for removing heavy metals and radioactive species
