Fukushima’s Radiation Release
Here’s One Important Way to Protect Yourself
By Dr. Thomas S. Lee, NMD (Reno, NV)
The Japanese College of Intravenous Therapy has released a series of four videos that … make a powerful case for protecting ourselves from radiation by using Vitamin C and other supplements.
What they don’t mention is that another powerful supplement to protect from radiation is Organic Sulfur. Sulfur reacts with radioactive mineral isotopes, turning them into harmless sulfates. This reaction occurs naturally because of the electrons that are available in sulfur’s atomic structure.
Sulfur also facilitates the movement of oxygen in and out of our cells to assist in the repair of damaged or dying cells. Sulfur-containing amino acids are needed to repair protein that has been damaged and to build new cells. Those amino acids can’t be formed as well without adequate sulfur.
After the atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, many of the Japanese people survived radiation poisoning simply by eating their traditional miso soup, which is made from fermented soybeans, sea vegetables like kombu, and root vegetables—all of which are rich in iodine and sulfur. Other natural sources of sulfur are garlic, cilantro, and pine lignans. Deep taproots of pine trees penetrate into sulfur-rich sub-soils.
You can search PubMed, the Medical Database Maintained by the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), for many studies which point to the protective properties of sulfur. Here’s a link to one:
“The inclusion of various sulfur-containing functions in organic molecules yielded compounds having whole-body radiation protection from lethal doses of gamma radiation in animals.”
—Annals of Pharmacotherapy, 1992 Sept.26(9):1144-7.
The MSM found in most health food stores doesn’t work as well as the organic crystals from high-lignan pine trees. This is because the mostly Asian manufacturers heat the MSM to 486 degrees F. and physically crush the sulfur crystals to a powder, solely for manufacturing convenience. This renders the resulting MSM far less bioavailable for healing.
Furthermore, if the MSM mixture contains silicon dioxide as an additive, it indicates that the sulfur has been deactivated and rendered almost useless. Be aware that most encapsulated MSM and powders are made up of this deactivated, non-lignan-containing form of sulfur.
