Yet another substance that binds with and removes toxins from the intestinal tract is Bentonite Clay Powder (Fuller's Earth). It may also work well for radioactive substances that are ingested in food, water, or just swallowed dust. It comes in dry powder or liquid form.Dr. Brocato goes on to observe that too much bentonite may cause constipation. Cember and Johnson in their well-known textbook, Introduction to Health Physics, speak of how clay can adsorb the radionuclides, i.e., attract them and hold them on the surface of the clay. There may well be an attraction of clay minerals like bentonite for certain radionuclides, such that the radioactive isotopes are attracted to the clay minerals and are thus eliminated from the body via the colon. Apple pectin and grapefruit pectin are available as tablets or as a powder in natural food stores, and is available as a powder on the canning-supply aisles of grocery stores and hardware stores. Pectin is a fiber that occurs in other fruits and seeds as well and may trap many fats and toxins, as it is a "soft" fiber. Chemical/Biological WarFare: How You Can Survive, describes, on page 332, research showing that pectin can help trap radioactive isotopes and eliminate them from the body.
Russian researcher Dr. A. A. Rubanovskaya, as reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association, November 18, 1962, discovered that pectin can eliminate radiation from the body, especially strontium. She used sunflower seeds as her source of research on pectin. She found the pectin attracted and bound the radiation through the intestinal tract. We find you could use ordinary commercial pectin that is used to make jams and jellies. It does this by absorption, a quality of being assimilated; incorporation, within its matrix, and adsorption, the process whereby there is an adherence of atoms, ions, or molecules, or particles to the surface of another substance.Kelp is a variety of seaweed that has long been sold in health food stores as a source of iodine, both in powder and tablet form, and often times in the form of the actual kelp plant. Research has shown that many Japanese who were eating a lot of kelp as part of their diets already had their thyroid glands well-protected when the atomic bombs were dropped during World War II. However, kelp also may serve as a "binder" to help trap radioactive isotopes in the intestinal tract and carry them out of the body. This is described on page 333 of Chemical/Biological WarFare: How You Can Survive:
Medical World News, July 3, 1964, described kelp being tested in Canada at McGill University. It too acted as a binding component for removing radioactivity, as pectin, from the intestinal tract.
Filtering through earth removes essentially all of the fallout particles and more of the dissolved radioactive material than does boiling-water distillation, a generally impractical purification method that does not eliminate dangerous radioactive iodines. Earth filters are also more effective in removing radioactive iodines than are ordinary ion-exchange water softeners or charcoal filters. In areas of heavy fallout, about 99% of the radioactivity in water could be removed by filtering it through ordinary earth.You can make an Expedient Filter this way:
1. Perforate the bottom of a 5-gallon can, a large bucket, a watertight wastebasket, or a similar container with about a dozen nail holes. Punch the holes from the bottom upward, staying within about 2 inches of the center. 2. Place a layer about 1&1/2 inches thick of washed pebbles or small stones on the bottom of the can. If pebbles are not available, twisted coat-hanger wires or small sticks can be used. 3. Cover the pebbles with one thickness of terrycloth towel, burlap sackcloth, or other quite porous cloth. Cut the cloth in a roughly circular shape about 3 inches larger than the diameter of the can. 4. Take soil containing some clay-almost any soil will do-from at least 4 inches below the surface of the ground. (Nearly all fallout particles remain near the surface except after deposition on sand or gravel.) 5. Pulverize the soil, then gently press it in layers over the cloth that covers the pebbles, so that the cloth is held snugly against the sides of the can. Do not use pure clay (not porous enough) or sand (too porous). The soil in the can should be 6 to 7 inches thick. 6. Completely cover the surface of the soil layer with one thickness of fabric as porous as a bath towel. This is to keep the soil from being eroded as water is poured into the filtering can. The cloth also will remove some of the particles from the water. A dozen small stones placed on the cloth near its edges will secure it adequately. 7. Support the filter can on rods or sticks placed across the top of a container that is larger in diameter than the filter can. (A dishpan will do.) The contaminated water should be poured into the filter can, preferably after allowing it to settle as described below. The filtered water should be disinfected by one of the previously described methods.
The presence of polonium–210 in tobacco leaves, and thus cigarette smoke, casts one of the most treacherous shadows across an industry that actively suppressed knowledge of smoking's dangers for decades. In 1964 a research paper published in the journal Science reported the existence of polonium–210 in tobacco smoke. Smoking one and a half packs a day for thirty years would expose the lungs to as much radiation as three hundred chest X–RAYS a year, causing an estimated 1 percent of all lung cancers in the United States—or about 2,225 new cases in 2010. (Much of the excess cancer attributed to breathing RADON may in fact be due to polonium–210—smokers are killed by alpha radiation, wherever it comes from.) The high–phosphate fertilizers that are used to grow tobacco contain radium–226, one of whose decay products is polonium–210, which is absorbed by plant roots and via fertilizer dust on leaves. The major tobacco companies tried for decades to remove or filter polonium–210, but gave it up as commercially infeasible. According to a 2008 analysis in the American Journal of Public Health of internal corporate documents release in response to litigatgion, the companies followed a legal strategy whereby avoiding knowledge of biologically significant levels of polonium–210 in their products would allow them to ignore it as a possible cause of lung cancer. They thus stymied efforts by their own scientists to perform or publish further research on the subject, seeking to "avoid heightening the public's awareness of radioactivity in cigarettes." Ignorance was bliss. Polonium–210 is highly toxic, extremely radioactive (sixty–five thousand times more than PLUTONIUM–239), and easy to ingest.
About 50 percent of cancer patients are treated with radiation, in most cases receiving high doses of 40 to 60 Gray to a small region of the body, with the aim of killing cells. Cervical cancer patients may receive doses as high as several hundred Gray, significantly increasing their risk for later cancers of the bladder, rectum, stomach, and vagina, and for leukemia. For treatment of childhood cancers, the risk for developing a second cancer in the twenty–five years after diagnosis of the first is as high as 12 percent. Of course, many patients who endure radiation therapy are not being treated with cures in mind, — A Field Guide To Radiation, Wayne Biddle; 2012
Milk in Little Rock, Arkansas, held iodine–131 at 8.9 picocuries per liter, nearly three times higher than the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) maximum contaminant level (3 picocuries per liter for persistent lifetime [seventy–year] exposure; the Food and Drug Administration limit is 4,700 picocuries per liter for a one–time exposure). Milk in Hilo, Hawaii, held 24 pCi/L of cesium–134, 19 of cesium–137, and 18 of iodine–131.Given this from 2012, you need to test your milk if you have cancer! And, it would not be a bad idea to do so if you didn't! If you live in a brick dwelling, get a test kit for Radon Gas for 3 to 4 days, and a longer one. At the end of the test period, send it in for an evaulation of your living quarters. We know:
The health hazard from radon comes not from the radon itself but from inhaled dust particles that had adsorbed radioactive radon progeny on their surfaces. Since the radioactive radon progeny are found on the surface of atmospheric particles and airborne particles are washed out of the atmosphere by rain, it is reasonable to expect increased background radiation during periods of rain. —Introduction To Health Physics, Cember & Johnson; 2009And this...
We find lung cancer among a much higher proportion of cigarette smokers than among nonsmokers; and among smokers, lung cancer is seen in a greater proportion of heavy smokers than light smokers. Most cigarette smokers do not develop lung cancer, while some nonsmokers develop this disease.—Introduction To Health Physics, Cember & Johnson; 2009 This Too...
Radon is the second most frequent cause of lung cancer, after cigarette smoking, causing 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year in the United States. About 2,900 of these deaths occur among people who have never smoked. While radon is the second most frequent cause of lung cancer, it is the number one cause among non–smokers, according to EPA estimates. — See Here:Get on the substances above, if you smoke and/or have or had cancer, to help clear the body of any radioactive particulates that you may have come into contact with. Pectin, Sodium Alginate, Kelp, and Bentonite Be on the thiols, as alpha lipoic acid, reduced glutathione, N–acetyl cysteine, and aged garlic capsules! Get on Butter and Unrefined Coconut Oil.
