Natural Protection from Nuclear Radioactive Fallout and from Chemotherapy and Radiation Side Effects

High-dose chemotherapy directly destroys the bone marrow's ability to produce white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Patients experience side effects from low numbers of white blood cells (neutropenia), red blood cells (anemia), and platelets (thrombocytopenia). 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 radioiodine (a radioactive isotope of iodine).

August 9, 2011 - Fukushima nuclear power plant radiation recordings of external gamma radiation have been so high this week, they went off scale said veteran nuclear expert Arnie Gunderson on Thursday after the famous physicist, Dr. Chris Busby told the Japanese people this week 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 iodine fallout."

 

NOTE: I cannot verify the accuracy of Dr. Browsteins's figures. Shirley

Protecting the Thyroid Gland Against Radiation Fallout (Radioiodine) with Potassium Iodide
Sea Vegetables Rich in Iodine  --- Glutathione and Thyroid Health -- Nascent Iodine and  potassium iodide (KI)

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. 

Sea Vegetables Rich in Iodine - A Protection Against Nuclear Radioactive Fallout
According to iodine research by 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: Emerald Sea is a rich and rare natural source of iodine from the most nutrient dense species of seaweed on the planet.  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.

Iodine is the most abundant non-conservative, biophilic and redox-sensitive trace element in the oceans. Recently, 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 (article). 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. 

Sea Plants Health Benefits Aren't Just for Humans .... It Can do Wonders for  Dogs, Cats, Ferrets, Horses and Other Animals - Feeding iodine rich sea plant algae and kelp meal to animals 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 or  Emerald Sea, a rich and rare natural source of iodine to their animals . The Emerald company ships only within the USA. 

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 to do this." Glutathione is a master antioxidant, an important line of defense against diseases, toxins, viruses, pollutants, radiation and oxidative stress. 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. click here to learn more....

Robert O. Young D.Sc., Ph.D - "In the last ten years, over 25,000 medical articles about this substance have been published, and the scientific understanding of glutathione is gradually becoming common knowledge. Each and every cell in the body is responsible for its own supply of glutathione and must have the necessary raw materals in order to produce it. Glutathione is always in great demand and is rapidly consumed when we experience any sort of emotional or physical stress, fatigue and even moderate exercise."

Nascent IodineNascent 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.  more...

Governments world-wide are now stockpiling potassium iodide (KI) Amongst them are Japan, Canada, Britain, France, Germany, Poland, Switzerland, Denmark, Norway, Austria, Sweden, etc., but not the U.S. After Three Mile Island and Chernobyl, all available potassium iodide supplies disappeared for months, almost overnight. With news of the recent nuclear accident in Tokaimura, Japan and continuing reports of the growing numbers of thyroid cancers amongst young Chernobyl victims, who were not issued potassium iodide, Americans are increasingly seeking out their own sources for this radiation protection medicine.

The CDC recommends using iodine to prevent injury form radioactive iodine fallout.  Adults and women who are breastfeeding should take 130mg of potassium iodide.   Children who are between 3 and 18 years of age should take 65mg of potassium iodide.  Children who are adult size should take the adult dose.  Infants and children between 1 month and 3 years of age should take 32mg of potassium iodide. Newborns from birth to one month of age should be given 16mg of potassium iodide. 

When should you take iodine?  For an acute exposure, you want to take iodine just before the exposure hits.  Iodine is cleared out of the body within 24 to 72 hours after taking it. However, If you have been using ortho-iodosupplementation as I describe in my books and lectures (taking from 6-50mg/day of iodine and iodide), you should be covered.   Remember, the goal is to not let the radioactive iodine bind in the body.  Protecting the Thyroid Gland Against Radiation Fallout (Radioiodine) with Potassium Iodide

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. The Radiation Detox Clay Bath Kit has 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 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. 

 

BBC 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."

FDA - "It is also notable that the thyroid radiation exposures after Chernobyl were virtually all internal, from radioiodines. Despite some degree of uncertainty in the doses received, it is reasonable to conclude that the contribution of external radiation was negligible for most individuals. This distinguishes the Chernobyl exposures from those of the Marshall Islanders. Thus, the increase in thyroid cancer seen after Chernobyl is attributable to ingested or inhaled radioiodines. A comparable burden of excess thyroid cancers could conceivably accrue should U.S. populations be similarly exposed in the event of a nuclear accident. This potential hazard highlights the value of averting such risk by using KI as an adjunct to evacuation, sheltering, and control of contaminated foodstuffs."

Protecting Against Radioiodine

If you're reading this and you live near a nuclear power plant you may already be familiar with potassium iodide (KI). Since the incident at Chernobyl, nearly twenty years ago, scientists have learned a great deal about the effects radiation poisoning can have on people.

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 radioiodine (a radioactive isotope of iodine). The treatment is practical enough but a few things should be explained before going on. For instance . . .

Treatments for Nuclear Contamination   Iodine – Glutathione – Natural Chelation – Clay – 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 complex. 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 damage. learn more...

What Does The Thyroid Gland Do?

The gland produces a hormone (thyroxin) that regulates the metabolism of the body. From there, the thyroid gland has an influence in affecting many functions of the body including increasing heart rate and body temperature, mental alertness, enhancing energy, and increasing secretion of Growth Hormone. For more information on the thyroid gland and thyroid disorders, Click here 

Where Does Iodine Come Into Play? The thyroid's primary "fuel" - as it were - is iodine. It uptakes the iodine and converts it into the necessary hormones for bodily function. This feature is wherein the danger lies. The thyroid gland, as previously stated, wants iodine. Wherever it can get it, it will. This makes it extremely vulnerable to the uptake of radioactive iodine. This fact is both a cure and a crux.

Radioiodine, in controlled dosage, is the preferred treatment for thyroidal ilnesses such as thyroid cancer, hyperthyroidism, and Grave's disease. The key is "CONTROLLED DOSAGE". Treatments are, ideally, under supervision and the threat of overexposure is limited. This is not the case in a radioactive fallout. Overexposure to radioiodine would be almost a certainty. The destroyed/damaged thyroid is then succeptible to the development of cancer. An interesting irony!

So what does all of this have to do Potassium iodide (KI) ?

Since the thyroid is such a glutton for iodine, the best thing to do is to let it have it! If a nuclear emergency should occur, be it from a reactor or attack, the preferred way to block the uptake of radioiodine is by making certain that the gland is already saturated with iodine. Insert KI here! potassium iodide (KI) supplies the thyroid with the over-abundance of iodine it needs and prevents it from absorbing the radioactive iodine.

Believe it or not most of you have consumed potassium iodide, that is if you've ever used table salt. It's added to salt to help stave off iodine deficiency. Of course there's less than 0.01% so it's ineffective as a treatment. It will do you no good to consume huge quantities of salt in a radioactive emergency - you'll just end up with high blood pressure and will still have the threat of thyroid cancer.

Questioning Chemotherapy : A Critique of the Use of Toxic Drugs in the Treatment of CancerChemotherapy: 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.

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.

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 radioiodine (a radioactive isotope of iodine). The Chernobyl reactor accident resulted in massive releases of 131I and other radioiodines. 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 radioiodines by the thyroid gland in a radiation emergency. more

Questioning Chemotherapy : A Critique of the Use of Toxic Drugs in the Treatment of Cancer by Ralph W. Moss

"I started as a believer in chemotherapy. As a science writer at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, I wrote articles praising the latest advances in chemotherapy. Because chemotherapy drugs were general cellular poisons, they could be terribly toxic. They were also very expensive for patients and for society as a whole. When I learned about the links between the pharmaceutical industry and the cancer establishment (later detailed in my book, The Cance r Industry) I understood the commercial reason that such an inadequate modality was so heavily promoted" Ralph W.

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" years later. 

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   Learn more: read about the Horwin's story and their journey into research.

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).

In Case of Emergency

We keep many things around the house, in case an emergency should arise, from rubbing alcohol to syrup of ipecac. If it expires, you throw it out and get more. The same goes for fire extinguishers, smoke detectors and flashlights. And the same should go for Potassium iodide!

The concept is not one we like to let slip into our conscious minds - that of a severe nuclear emergency. But it is possible, especially under current conditions. It's always best to be prepared.

What do I do if I'm exposed?
In the event of a nuclear emergency, local officials will have the task of instructing the public on the immediate actions to take. In relation to radioactive iodine, the consumption of KI within 3-4 hours of exposure is necessary to help prevent the radioiodine uptake from occurring.

FDA - "In the Federal Register of December 15, 1978, FDA announced its conclusion that KI is a safe and effective means by which to block uptake of radioiodines by the thyroid gland in a radiation emergency under certain specified conditions of use. In the Federal Register of June 29, 1982, FDA announced final recommendations on the administration of KI to the general public in a radiation emergency. Those recommendations were formulated after reviewing studies relating radiation dose to thyroid disease risk that relied on estimates of external thyroid irradiation after the nuclear detonations at Hiroshima and Nagasaki and analogous studies among children who received therapeutic radiation to the head and neck. Those recommendations concluded that at a projected dose to the thyroid gland of 25 cGy or greater from ingested or inhaled radioiodines, the risks of short-term use of small quantities of KI were outweighed by the benefits of suppressing radioiodine-induced thyroid cancer." 

In November 2001, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a final "Guidance on Potassium Iodide as a Thyroid Blocking Agent in Radiation Emergencies." The objective of the document is to provide guidance to other Federal agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), and to state and local governments regarding the safe and effective use of potassium iodide (KI) as an adjunct to other public health protective measures in the event that radioactive iodine is released into the environment. The adoption and implementation of the recommendations are at the discretion of the state and local governments responsible for developing regional emergency-response plans related to radiation emergencies. The recommendations in the guidance address KI dosage and the projected radiation exposure at which the drug should be used. This guidance updates FDA’s 1982 recommendations.

 KI Use in Radiation Emergencies: Treatment Recommendations (by the FDA)

After careful review of the data from Chernobyl relating estimated thyroid radiation dose and cancer risk in exposed children, FDA is revising its recommendation for administration of KI based on age, predicted thyroid exposure, and pregnancy and lactation status ( see Table). 

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 Nuclear 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 any 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.

Potassium Iodide (KI) is Safe 
(from the UNITED STATES NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION OFFICE OF NUCLEAR MATERIAL SAFETY AND SAFEGUARDS)

"The FDA has evaluated the medical and radiological risks of administering potassium iodide (KI) for thyroid blocking under emergency conditions.  The FDA has concluded that FDA-approved "radiation emergency potassium iodide" is safe and effective and has approved it for over-the-counter sale for this purpose (Federal Register, Vol. 50, No. 142, p. 30258, July 24, 1985). Potassium iodide is effective as a thyroid blocking agent.  It reduces thyroid gland accumulation of radioiodine that has entered the body through inhalation or ingestion if the potassium iodide is administered before, or immediately after, exposure to the radioiodine.  If potassium iodide is administered later than four hours after an individual has suffered an acute ingestion or in-halation of radioiodine, its effectiveness as a thyroid blocking agent is less than 50 percent." 

FDA's GUIDANCE ON PROTECTION OF CHILDREN AND ADULTS AGAINST THYROID CANCER IN CASE OF NUCLEAR ACCIDENT 

The Food and Drug Administration has issued a guidance on the use of potassium iodide (KI) to reduce the risk of thyroid cancer in children and adults in emergencies involving the release of radioactive iodine into the environment. 

Fluoride and Fluoridation: Wide Range of Serious Health Problems Including Thyroid Disorder 
For over 50 years, the U.S. government and media have trumpeted fluoride as a safe and effective means of reducing cavities, especially in children. But fluoride is not the benevolent and innocuous substance the public has been led to believe. Cancer, diabetes, thyroid and neurological disorders, hormonal imbalances, heart disease, arthritis and osteoporosis have all been linked to chronic fluoride ingestion.

Fighting Radiation And Chemical Pollutants With Foods, Herbs and Vitamins by Steven R. Schechter

Shows how over 40 foods, herbs and nutrients work to prevent absorption of radiation and chemicals in the body.

 "I first came across this book several years ago while searching for ways to combat the spinal and muscular deterioration I was experiencing from radiation therapy for childhood cancer in 1954. In this substantial book, Steven Schechter has provided excellent information, backed by extensive research. Fighting Radiation and Chemical Pollutants has become a trusted resource guide for me. Unlike many books on nutritional answers to physical needs, this book offers solid documentation of medical research (almost 2 dozen pages of bibliographical notes) for the foods, nutrients, herbs, and activities it recommends. It also teaches -- in a readable balance of detail and simplicity -- how radiation and chemicals affect the human body, and how to utilize recommendations. As a naturopathic doctor, Schechter offers us refreshing alternatives to drug therapies and lives of pain. Just using a portion of the nutrients (high-quality only) listed in this book - in combination with other traditional and non-traditional therapies such chiropractic, therapeutic massage, manual physical therapy and water exercise -- has made a big difference in my quality of life and kept me from the need for drugs and surgeries. Whether the radiation or chemical exposure is environmental, industrial or medical, this book offers effective weapons for those fighting after-effects, and practical help for those looking for front-line protection against future exposure." Karen McIver

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

The Radiation Poisoning Of America

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. 


How to Detox Your Body of Depleted Uranium Residues, the Effects of Radiation, and Radioactive Contamination

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 of radiation.  learn more about glutathione GSH

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 immune system.

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. Chlorella algae, a known immune system builder and heavy metal detoxifier, has also shown radioprotective effects. Because they bind heavy metals, algae should therefore be consumed after exposure to any type of radioactive contamination. (Note: Marine phytoplankton is also a powerbul detoxifier and nourishing product

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 foods:

· Miso soup
· Spirulina, chlorella and the algaes (kelp, etc.)
· 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
· cod liver oil and olive oil
· Avoid sugars and sweets and wheat
· A good multivitamin/multimineral supplement

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."

"The chemical pollution in air, soil and water is particularliy serious, since the pollutants find their way into the food chain and their absorption into the body can be hazardous ... Our investigation has shown that alginate can bind radioactive strontium .. binds with other metal pollutants such as excess barium, cadmium and zinc." "There is no family of foods more protective against radiation and environmental pollutants than sea vegetables. 

Sea vegetables can prevent assimilation of different radionuclitides, heavy metals such as cadmium, and other environmental toxins."  An experiment conducted by J.F. Stara at the Environmental Protection Agency showed that sodium alginate significantly reduced the amount of radio active strontium in the bones of cats. Stara observed that radio active strontium in the bones is resecreted into the intestines where it is bound by alginate, neutralized then excreted in the stools." 
 

Radiation Detoxification Clay Bath

"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 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.

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 from water.

LL’s Magnetic Clay Baths has a superior Environmental Detox Bath, composed of Bentonite clay with very trace amounts of aluminum content and are used for heavy metal detox and also to remove radiation. As with all clays, the more you use, the quicker you tend to detox. The Environmental Detox Bath is another possibility for heavy metal detoxification that is stronger than Zeo-Rad Bath, and is usually taken just once a week.

Internal clays have been used for a detoxification supplement for hundreds of years to remove disease symptoms. It has the ability to remove toxic metals and chemical residues, bacteria, and blood toxins with virtually no side effects of constipation, diarrhea, or stomach cramping and is also known to remove radiation, arsenic, lead, mercury, and aluminum amid other toxic metals in less than six weeks. It’s said that after the meltdown of the Chemobyl Soviet nuclear power plant in 1986, the Soviet Union put French Green clay in chocolate bars and dispensed them freely to the masses to remove radiation they may have been exposed to. more

Other Radiation Protection:

  • Wheatgrass and radiation Tests have been made which point to a chlorophyll (wheatgrass) rich diet affecting the survival of experimental animals after lethal doses of radiation.* In 1950, Lourau and Lartigue reported that cabbage supplement (chlorophyll) increases the resistance of   guinea pigs to radiation. 
  • Sea Vegetables "There is no family of foods more protective against radiation and environmental pollutants than sea vegetables ... sea vegetables can prevent assimilation of different radionuclitides, heavy metals such as cadmium, and other environmental toxins."  Steven Schecter, N.D
  • Therapeutic Clay "Russian scientists use bentonite to protect their bodies from radiation when working with nuclear material, by coating their hands and bodies with a hydrated bentonite "magma" before donning radiation suits.  Bentonite adsorbs radiation so well, in fact, that it was the choice material used to dump into Cherynobl after the nuclear meltdown in the former Soviet Union." Dr. Jensen, N.D., D.C., Ph.D., suggests using bentonite to absorb radiation from the bones.  Since so many of us are subject to various forms of radiation, whether from X-rays or television or computers, this would be something to consider.  This could be extremely important for those who have undergone radiation treatment for cancer. 
  • Marine phytoplankton to reduce the side effects of chemo and radiation  Research indicates marine phytoplankton can protect against some of the noxious side effects of chemotherapy and radiation.

Global diabetes epidemic caused by depleted uranium 

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. 

Uranium Poisoning
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. more


Liver Damage: Veno-Occlusive Disease of the Liver (VOD) High-dose chemotherapy can result in damage to the liver which can be serious and even fatal. This complication is increased in patients who have had a lot of previous chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy, a history of liver damage or hepatitis. Veno-occlusive disease of the liver typically occurs in the first 2 weeks after high-dose chemotherapy treatment. Patients typically experience symptoms of abdominal fullness or swelling, liver tenderness and weight gain from fluid retention. Development of strategies to prevent or treat veno-occlusive disease is an active area of clinical investigation.

Your Liver: A Powerful Shield in a Giant Battle - The Role of a Healthy Liver

Milk Thistle has a long therapeutic history for the treatment of liver disorders. Milk thistle (Silybum marianum - syn. Carduus marianus L.) is a common herb that has been used as a liver tonic for at least 2,000 years.  It was mentioned by Theophrastus (4th century B.C.) with the name of Pternix and by Pliny the Elder (1st century A.D.) with the name of Sillybum. Von Haller (1744) in its "Medizinischen Lexicon" documented the specific use of the plant for liver disorders. In the 19th and 20th centuries many authors such as Rademacher, Schulz and Henry Leclerc mentioned the fruits of S. marianum for the treatment of liver diseases, disorders of the bile duct and spleen.

Milk thistle seeds contain a bioflavonoid complex known as silymarin. This constituent is responsible for the medical benefits of the plant (according to Wagner H, Horhammer L, Munster R. in their article "The chemistry of silymarin (silybin), the active principle of the fruits of Silybum marianum (l.) Gaertner", published in Arzneim-Forsch Drug Research 1968; 18: 688-96.) Silymarin is a mixture of chemical compounds (called flavonolignans) that may help protect and even repair the liver. Researchers hypothesize that it blocks toxins from entering liver cells. The liver is the only organ that can regenerate itself, and silymarin may accelerate this process by stimulating the production of the proteins that are the building blocks of new liver cells. Finally, some data suggests that silymarin is an antioxidant, which means it might protect cells from damage by scavenging oxygen molecules called free radicals.

Literally hundreds of research studies, mostly in Europe, have confirmed the remarkable ability of milk thistle to protect the liver against virtually all types of damage: from accidental exposure to chemical pollutants, toxic side effects of medications, liver diseases like hepatitis and even the self inflicted damage from overindulgence of rich food and alcohol. The United States National Library of Medicine has catalogued more than 300 scientific studies of milk thistle and its active compounds in their medicine database.

Irradiated Ground Beef to Go to School Lunch Programs

Despite objections from several consumer groups and thousands of parents, teachers and children, the Department of Agriculture approved the use of irradiated ground beef in the national school lunch program.  Local school districts will now have the option of ordering hamburgers and meat loaf treated with low doses of bacteria-destroying radiation to be served in school cafeterias. Some 27 million school children receive free or low-cost meals daily under the USDA's national school lunch program. While there is not a lot of evidence showing that irradiation is harmful, the effects of long-term consumption of irradiated food products remain to be seen. 

  • Irradiating food causes the creation of known toxins and unique chemicals. Research has shown numerous health problems in lab animals that ate irradiated food, including reproductive problems, genetic damage and cancer development. 
  • Irradiated food served in schools does not have to be labeled! This obstructs parents' right-to-know what their children are eating. 
  • Irradiation masks filthy and inhumane meat processing, where meat is often contaminated with feces, vomit, pus, and urine.

Extremely low frequency (ELF) radiation
by Jeanee Andrewartha

When the sun goes down, melatonin a hormone produced by the pineal gland begins to build up in the body. Melatonin brings on sleep and it is the body’s internal cleanser removing dead cells and toxins. Melatonin levels are highest in the early morning and then drop off as it becomes light. Though it may be common knowledge, that a good night sleep can cure many ailments, what is not commonly known is that ELF radiation from electrical devices can adversely decrease melatonin levels in the body. So that television in your room, electric blanket or waterbed heater, and that clock radio near your head can be adversely affecting your health, by impeding the body's natural ability to heal itself. The Swedish government has recently decided that the maximum tolerance level for electrical devices is 2milligauss, but unfortunately most household devices far exceed this amount. A vacuum cleaner may be emitting 300mg plus.

At this stage, you are probably thinking to yourself that this news is all too much to bear and to throw caution to the wind and hide your head in the sand and hope for the best. You are free to do so but health is not all in the mind. A Gauss meter can be purchased from US $40 -$200. This device can detect ELF radiation levels of current electrical devices and if you intend to purchase new items it is really a small investment to find a device that emits the lowest ELF radiation.

The bedroom is the most important area in the house as this is where the body is cleansed. If melatonin levels are decreased by ELF radiation, not only will it be difficult to sleep but melatonin will not be able to effectively clean the body from cancer cells and toxins. Synthetic melatonin is not the same as your own melatonin. So rather than choose another cure all drug, look to the environment around your house and make more lasting changes. So now, that you have got rid of sources of radiation, what about the mattress you sleep on. What is it made of and what gases is the mattress emitting while you sleep so innocently on it. Try formadehyde, plasticers, antimony, phosphine (PH3), arsine (AsH3) and stibine (SbH3) to name a few.  More information on ELF and EMF Cell Phone and other Wi-Fi Radiation Exposure - Germany Warns Citizens to Avoid Using Wi-Fi

The identical damage resulting from both radioactive gamma waves and high frequency microwaves involves a pathological condition in which the nuclei of irradiated human cells splinter into fragments called micronuclei. Micronuclei are a definitive pre-cursor of cancer. During the 1986 nuclear reactor disaster at Chernobyl in Russia, the ionizing radiation released was equivalent to 400 atomic bombs, with an estimated ultimate human toll of 10,000 deaths. Exposed Russians quickly developed blood cell micronuclei, leaving them at high risk for cancer. More: The Radiation Poisoning Of America
 

Studies over the last 15 years have hinted at a connection between EMFs and health problems.  EMFs have been implicated in behavioral changes, birth defects, memory loss, and Alzheimer's disease.  In 1976, two doctors at the Veteran's Administration Hospital in Syracuse, N.Y. showed that the offspring of mice exposed to extremely low-frequency EMFs from power lines were born stunted. Chronic exposure to high levels of EMR, especially while asleep, is a constant drain on our vitality. It creates chronic stress, which interferes with the regeneration and healing that normally takes place during a good night’s sleep. You may compare it to always swimming against a strong current and this may well make the difference between recovering from a serious disease and succumbing to it.

Dr. Mercola - "Using your cell phone has more life-threatening consequences than the hazard of diverting your attention from the road. The health risks of EMR (electromagnetic radiation) from cell phones are a frightening reality. Over the last ten years many, scientific reports have been published addressing the health risks from electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) far below what is required for cellular phones to communicate. Recent clinical and laboratory studies have shown that the EMFs emitted from your cell phone can cause dangerous health conditions including :

    * Headache
    * Sleep disruption
    * Brain tumors
    * Alzheimer's Disease
    * Parkinson's Disease
    * Altered memory function, concentration and spatial awareness
    * Other forms of cancer

    * Cell phones emit a radiation plume. 
    * Most cell phone headsets have a wire that can act like an antenna, and simply make matters worse.
    * A great deal of scientific data has been suppressed by the cell phone industry and the government to protect their multi-billion dollar profits. Now I simply refuse to talk on any cell phone unless I am using a speaker phone or headset designed to reduce radiation." Dr. Mercola
 

Cell Phones: Invisible Hazards in the Wireless Age
An 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 significan 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 Drs. 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.

Water The Great Healer and Detoxifier!  Water therapy has been used for centuries to heal the sick.  Hydro- and hydrothermal therapy are traditional methods of treatment that have been used for the treatment of disease and injury by many cultures, including those of ancient Rome, China, and Japan. Water therapy has been around for centuries. The ancient Greeks took therapeutic baths. Water is an important ingredient in the traditional Chinese and Native American healing systems. more

F. Batmanghelidj, M.D. - "Every function inside the body is regulated by and depends on water. Water must be available to carry vital elements, oxygen, hormones, and chemical messengers to all parts of the body. Without sufficient water to wet all parts equally, some more remote parts of the body will not receive the vital elements that water supplies. Water is also needed to carry toxic waste away from the cells. In fact, there are at least 50 reasons why the body needs sufficient water on a regular, everyday basis. Without sufficient water to constantly wet all parts, your body's drought-management system kicks into action. The histamine-directed chemical messenger systems are activated to arrange a new, lower quota of water for the drought-stricken areas. When histamine and its subordinate "drought managers" come across pain-sensing nerves, they cause pain. This is what I discovered in my research that I mentioned earlier."  Benefits of Alkaline, Ionized Water, by Dr. Hidemitsu Hayashi, M.D.

It also stores an energy memory of harmful or helpful vibrations to which it was exposed in the past.  Chlorinated tap water is polluted with non-biological chemicals and negative energy imprints. It is also devoid of bio-energy and so may be regarded as being badly polluted as well as 'dead'. Alkaline living water is regarded by a growing number of health care professionals as the best water to drink and is listed as a medical device in Japan for the treatment of degenerative diseases.

Joseph M. Price, MD - "Chlorine is the greatest crippler and killer of modern times. It is an insidious poison."

Albert Schatz, Ph.D - "Fluoridation  is the greatest fraud that has ever been perpetrated and it has been perpetrated on more people than any other fraud has." Professor Albert Schatz, Ph.D. (Microbiology), Discoverer of streptomycin and Nobel Prize Winner

Matthew Silver, MD  - "An associate in her early fifties who had suffered for many years from the toxic effects of chlorine poisoning from inhaling vapors from an over-chlorinated swimming pool. This had resulted in many severe health challenges including extreme chronic fatigue and breathing difficulty that kept her housebound and dependent on oxyn. Even minimal exertion led to extreme shortness of breath. After just three days of drinking glyconutrients, she reported that all of her symptoms improved dramatically and that she was able to leave her house without oxygen and work in her garden, which she had not been able to do in years."  The sugars found on all Glyconutrients (saccharides) also address the workings of the brain and nervous system – from memory and sleep to anxiety and depression.

Safe, toxin-free, Ionized, Energized, Drinking Water helps to naturally flush toxins and acidic waste from the body and is a powerful antioxidant. Ionized Water makes more oxygen available to our cells than distilled, reverse osmosis, filtered only, bottled or tap water and is the best possible drinking water. "Disease and early death is more likely to be seen with the long term drinking of purified water. Avoid it except in special circumstances." Zoltan P. Rona M.D


Chemicals and Toxins Are The Primary Cause of Illness, Disease and Obesity Substances that are toxic to our bodies come at us from all directions: the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, the cleaning products we use, and the metabolic waste produced inside us. Toxins build-up in the body contribute to premature aging and chronic and degenerative diseases. Dr. Steve Nugent, the past president of the American Naturopathic Medical Association, reported recently that "in the typical American home there are more toxins inside the home than outside the home! Your cells actually contain over 400 new toxins that didn't even exist 45 years ago and we are losing the battle against toxins!" It's a fact. There are increasing amounts of toxins and chemical agents in the water we drink, the food we eat and the air we breathe - they all contribute to the breakdown in cellular communication and disease.  more




How to Survive Disasters With Natural Medicines 
By Dr. Cass Igram, specialist in preventive, nutritional, and environmental medicine.

This book is unlike any that exists, because it prescribes only natural, non-toxic remedies for the treatment of disaster-related injuries and illnesses. What are the consequences of a massive disaster in an industrialized country?  Radiation leakages - Toxic chemical releases  - Severe, acute trauma - Infections - Water Contamination etc. Dr. Igram addresses all of these issues-and more-in terms of natural remedies that help survivors make it through the aftermath of disasters. 

Here are some of the first aid hints you will learn:

  • A special natural oil can entirely prevent wound infections – even in contaminated wounds.
  • Parasites that cause life-threatening diseases, such as cholera and dysentery, can be killed before they kill you.
  • Certain foods can prevent and/or cure life-threatening diarrhea.
  • Various natural substances have special antimicrobial properties and can cure infections better than antibiotics.
  • Natural remedies can protect against bodily damage due to severe stress and exposure.
  • A natural substance mined from the Florida Everglades can stop bleeding when applied to wounds.
  • Key nutrients protect the lungs and other organs from damage due to toxic chemical clouds.
  • Effective, safe remedies protect infants and children from becoming ill and can be used to treat them if they do.


Biological Terror: A Consideration of Ancient and Alternative Treatments of Catastrophic Diseases

With the knowledge available in this downloadable special report, you'll know how people of the past survived smallpox and other lethal diseases without dropping likes flies in crowded, disease-ridden hospitals. You also learn about modern alternative treatments for horrific diseases.
 

Living Terrors: What America Needs to Know to Survive the Coming Bioterrorist Catastrophe by Michael T., Ph.D.

"We are ... at the brink of a new age: what some experts call catastrophic terrorism," write Michael T. Osterholm (an epidemiologist) and John Schwartz (a Washington Post science reporter) at the start of this slim volume. What's more, "the United States is not doing enough to prepare." Smallpox, anthrax, bubonic plague--a smart terrorist could use any of these deadly diseases to wreak havoc on thousands or even millions of Americans. Yet there aren't enough antibiotics and vaccines in stockpile, public-health facilities can't handle a "surge," and most law enforcement agencies have no idea how to cope with a crisis. "I do not believe it is a question of whether a lone terrorist or terrorist group will use infectious disease agents to kill unsuspecting citizens; I'm convinced it's really just a question of when and where," writes Osterholm in the introduction. 

Books about disease and bioterrorism have become a subgenre in recent years, following the popular success of Richard Preston's The Hot Zone and Ken Alibek's Biohazard. Living Terrors probably provides the best quick-and-dirty guide to the problem for lay readers, with its harrowing descriptions of why certain diseases are so fatal and its clear assessment of America's disturbing vulnerabilities. Each chapter begins with a fictionalized account of how an attack might occur. In one, Osterholm and Schwartz write of a disgruntled scientist who loads anthrax into a crop-duster and flies over a crowded stadium. The authors believe this kind of sensationalism is completely warranted, given the nature of the threat and federal government's lackadaisical response to it. The point, they say, is "to warn you that the threat of biological terrorism is real without frightening you out of your wits. Instead, we hope to frighten you into your wits." --John J. Miller

Germs: Biological Weapons and America's Secret War

Three reporters from The New York Times survey the recent history of biological weapons and sound an alarm about the coming threat of the "poor man's hydrogen bomb." Germs begins ominously enough, recounting the chilling attack by the followers of the Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh in 1984 on the Dalles, Oregon--no one died, but nearly 1,000 were infected with a strain of salmonella that the cult had legally obtained, then cultured and distributed.

While the U.S. maintained an active "bugs and gas" program in the '50s and early '60s, bio-weapons were effectively pulled off this country's agenda in 1972 when countries around the world, led by the United States, forswore development of such weapons at the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention. The issue reemerged in the early '90s thanks to Saddam Hussein and revelations of the clandestine and massive buildup of bio-weapons in remote corners of the Soviet Union. The book's description of the Soviet program is horrific. At its peak the program employed thousands of scientists, developing bioengineered pathogens as well as producing hundreds of tons of plague, anthrax, and smallpox annually. The authors conclude that while a biological attack against the United States is not necessarily inevitable, the danger of bio-weapons is too real to be ignored. Well-researched and documented, this book will not disappoint readers looking for a reliable and sober resource on the topic. --Harry C. Edwards 

Biohazard: The Chilling True Story of the Largest Covert Biological Weapons Program in the World--Told from Inside by the Man Who Ran It

In this fast-paced memoir, Ken Alibek combines cutting-edge science with the narrative techniques of a thriller to describe some of the most awful weapons imaginable. The result will remind readers of The Hot Zone, Richard Preston's smart bestseller about the Ebola virus. That book focuses on the dangers of a freak accident; Biohazard shows how disease can become a deliberate tool of war. Alibek, once a top scientist in the Soviet Union's biological weapons program, describes putting anthrax on a warhead and targeting a city on the other side of the world. "A hundred kilograms of anthrax spores would, in optimal atmospheric conditions, kill up to three million people in any of the densely populated metropolitan areas of the United States," he writes. "A single SS-18 [missile] could wipe out the population of a city as large as New York." 

Chilling passages like these, plus discussions of proliferation and terrorism, make Biohazard a harrowing book, but it also has a human side. Alibek, who defected to the United States, describes the routine danger of his work: "A bioweapons lab leaves its mark on a person forever." An unending stream of vaccinations has destroyed his sense of smell, afflicted him with allergies, made it impossible to eat certain kinds of food, and "weakened my resistance to disease and probably shortened my life." But it didn't take away his ability to tell an astonishing story. --John J. Miller

The Military, Microbes And Secret Tests Using the U.S. Public
Wall Street Journal, Monday, October 22, 2001 (front page) 

Year ago, Bugs Thought Safe Were Sprayed on Big Cities "In Senate subcommittee hearings in 1977, the U.S. Army revealed that weeks before Mr. Nervins sickened and died, the Army had staged a mock biological atack on San Francisco, secretly spraying the city with Serratia and other agents thought to be harmless. The goal: to see what might happen in a ral germ-warfare attack. The experiment, which involved blasting a bacterial fog over the entire 49 square-mile city from a Navy vessel offshore, was recorded with clinical nonchalance."

AIDS/HIV/AZT
What if everything you thought you knew about AIDS was wrong? A growing number of scientists world-wide have publicly denounced the total failure of the HIV/AIDS hypothesis, questioned the meaning of the "AIDS test", and criticized the use of AZT which has been proven to be a toxic poison that makes the patient sicker and is actually the cause of AIDS deaths. The group includes scientists such as Kary Mullis, who won the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 1993 for inventing the polymerase chain reaction used to test for HIV, Peter H. Duesberg, Ph.D., a professor of molecular and cell biology at the University of California, Berkeley and Charles Thomas, PhD., Former chair of the Cell Biology Department, Scripps Research Institute - Healing AIDS: a holistic approach.
