from Airport Scanner Radiation
The bureaucrats in the Department of Homeland Security and the automatons they hire to staff airport security check points can try to tell us how safe their backscatter x-ray machines are until the cows come home.
But we’re not buying it; after all, these are the same folks who can’t tell shampoo from explosives.
We’re suspicious, because even though the level of radiation given off by these machines is supposedly very low, preliminary studies estimate that between six and 100 people will develop cancer each year as a result of backscatter radiation exposure.
We’re suspicious because we don’t think adequate independent studies of the health risks have been done.
And, we’re suspicious because frankly we don’t trust the government to do a good job of keeping these things calibrated. In any case, we can’t tell how reliable these reports are, but when precautions are so easy to take, there’s just no reason to take unnecessary risks.
So, sometimes we have to go through the backscatter imager or else put up with the extra time, hassle, and humiliation that comes from being groped, i.e. “hand searched.”
Did you know there are some natural foods and supplements that can help counter any damage the extra airport radiation might be causing to your cells?
Damage Done over Time
The big problem with radiation is that while a little exposure here and there doesn’t do any immediate damage, it can have a cumulative effect.
The TSA and other government bureaucrats assure you that these scanners don’t hit you with enough radiation to matter. But, that’s not quite true. It’s one more source of radiation on a growing list.
That can lead to serious health problems over time unless you take steps to counteract and repair the damage that radiation does to your cells.
Countering Radiation Damage
Nature provides us with a safe, effective counter to radiation: chlorophyllin. This water-soluble form of the chlorophyll that gives plants their green color protects cells from radiation damage.
In animal research published in Toxicology, scientists found that chlorophyllin provided significant protection to cells exposed to radiation. In another study, researchers discovered that chlorophyllin helps prevent cancerous cells from replicating. Overall, chlorophyllin interferes with cancer-causing and mutagenic agents, preventing them from binding to and damaging cells.
More Natural Ways to Protect Your Cells
In today’s technologically advanced society, you get exposed to higher levels of radiation on average than people a generation or two ago did. So, it’s beneficial to give your cells some extra support. It’s easy to do and doesn’t cost much. If it prevents an episode with cancer later in your life, then it’s totally worth it.
We also want to mention that if you have any medical problems requiring x-rays or other types of imaging, it’s doubly important to counter the damaging effects of radiation on your cells. Medical x-rays multiply your exposure to radiation.
In addition to taking a chlorophyllin supplement, try these other ways to support your cells:
Eat foods that contain pectin. Pectin grabs hold of radioactive residues floating around your body and then removes them as part of your natural elimination process. Good pectin-rich foods include apples, oranges, and plums.
Eat more dark, leafy greens and more broccoli. Dark foods contain lots of chlorophyll. And, like a chlorophyllin supplement, they help protect your cells from getting damaged by radiation in the first place.
Take a tincture of burdock root following extra radiation exposure. If you fly while traveling or have a medical image taken, a few drops of burdock root tincture three times a day for several days following your exposure will help to remove radioactive isotopes from your body.
And, my favorite – take a vitamin D3 supplement. Vitamin D helps your body on so many levels, that it’s really not surprising it can help counter the effects of radiation. Vitamin D3 plays a crucial role in healthy cell formation and replication. When people have adequate levels of vitamin D3 in their systems, they’re less susceptible to damage from radiation. Step up your vitamin D supplement before and after radiation exposure. You should be taking a vitamin D supplement regularly anyway (or getting regular sun exposure). Double your supplement if you know you’re going to be flying and then keep it doubled for at least a week after your return.
It’s easy to think you’re powerless to do anything about radiation exposure. But, the truth is you’re exposed to low levels of radiation every day.
It’s not surprising that your body has ways of fighting the damaging effects if you give it an added boost of nutrition. By eating more of the foods we recommend here and by taking the supplements listed above, you can help your body in its fight.
And, that can help save you from the heartache of cancer later in your life.
