Dietary weapons against radiation: foods and nutritional supplements capable of neutralizing effects of radiation.

Foods and Nutritional Supplements Capable of Neutralizing Effects of Radiation

Fortunately, the battle against radiation begins on the cell level. The electromagnetic field generated by modern living can be reduced but never eliminated. The universe is teeming with radiation. We cannot build barriers against outer space. The integrity of the immune system, however, must be our first and last line of defense. When the cells and tissues are saturated with nutrients, there is less opportunity for radioactive elements to dominate.

Many foods and nutritional supplements can bolster the immune system and nourish the cell structure so effectively that radiation can be diminished in effect.

The following regimen may be an effective bulwark against the ravages of the electromagnetic field:

Kelp and other sea-vegetables can strengthen the immune system and draw out radioactive elements from the body.

Garlic and garlic extract tablets are reputed to have a detoxifying effect. Garlic and onions are also known to combat many strains of viruses.

Beta-carotene, vitamin E, and vitamin C are proven antioxidants. When electrons are displaced from their orbit, dramatic changes occur in their biochemical properties. Free radicals are formed. The body normally keeps them under control, but exposure to radiation greatly accelerates their formation. The body produces free radical scavengers to counteract free radicals. The work of these free radical scavengers can be facilitated by the use of antioxidants. Selenium, a mineral that should be taken only in small quantities, is also an antioxidant.

Zinc has been scientifically proven to enhance the immune system because of its effect on the thymus gland. Vitamin B6 is another nutrient known to fortify glandular functioning.

The virtues of whole grain foods, fresh vegetables, a very low intake of sugar, the frequent use of unrefined carbohydrates and a moderate intake of protein foods (restricted to vegetable and grain proteins) believed to have protective value in pitting the immune system against the proliferation of the electromagnetic field.
