The good drives out the bad.

If you are nutritionally deficient, you become vulnerable in more ways than supposed. Lack of calcium invites occupancy of the cells to strontium-90 -- a member of the family to which calcium belongs but, in health terms, a "black sheep of the family."

Many minerals are similar in structure to each other. It's a "sibling rivalry," however, that fills the vacuum with a dangerous relative. The body's survival needs will take up a similar element although it may serve quite the opposite need. The calcium/strontium-90 duality is an example of a calcium bone deficiency welcoming whichever gets there first. Bones will accept deadly strontium-90 when benevolent calcium is lacking.

Zinc is another example of "misplaced relatives." When zinc is lacking, cadmium and mercury will be welcomed by a famished body. Antimony and bismuth are related to phosphorus; chlorine will substitute for radium; osmium can replace iron; tungsten will fill in for chromium. The body is a relentless factory when famished, often to its own detriment.

In the case of strontium-90 replacing calcium, once deposited, strontium-90 will radiate nearby cells, reducing functioning and laying the groundwork for cancer.

Iodine will be missed by the thyroid gland when in short supply. Like a dispassionate suitor, when iodine is missing, the body will accept radioactive iodine-131 lurking in the magnetic field. When the iodine-131 reaches the thyroid gland, it will irradiate and impair the thyroid gland. The time lapse between the event and development of cancer can take 12 to 50 years, says Dr. Helen Caldicott in her book Nuclear Madness.

Other essential minerals are involved in the "grand substitution scam," such as dangerous cobalt-60 for vitamin B12, cesium-137 for potassium; and in a reverse twist the presence of calcium-magnesium in the blood stream will force out radioactive strontium-90.
