Fucus Laminaria

Protects from Radiation Poisoning

Kelp is a large brown seaweed

Dosage:   Pour 1 cup boiling water on 1 teaspoon dried powder.
                   Steep 10 minutes. Take 3 x day

It may also be taken in tablet form. 1000-1500 mg daily

Aids in maintaining proper balance of minerals. A rich source of vitamins, minerals, and trace elements contains .1% iodine to stimulate thyroid gland

Raises metabolic rate by increasing hormone production by the thyroid gland.

Cleanses radiation from the body. Taken when you have been exposed to radiation. Prevents intestinal absorption of recently ingested radioactive strontium-90 and heavy metals: barium, cadmium, putonium, and cesium, as does bladderwrack and other seaweeds.

Contains beta carotene and strong anti-oxidants

SODIUM ALGINATE (from Kelp) - 500 mg.

Prevents the absorption of radioactive Strontium 90, which is a by-product of above ground nuclear testing.

It accumulates in the bone tissue. Since the nuclear accidents at three Mile Island, Chernobyl and God knows where else, Strontium 90 toxicity has been linked to Hodgkin's Disease, leukemia and bone cancer.

McGill University revealed that it also inhibits the absorption of Barium, Plutonium and Cadmium.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission recommends that you ingest 3 ounces of Kelp per week or take a daily supplement of Sodium Alginate!

Kelp acts as a binding agent, removing radioactivity (as described in pectin) from the intestines. For example, kelp reduced the absorption of Strontium-90 by animals from 50% to 80% as compared with untreated animals which received no kelp at all. The animals given kelp also showed a 70% drop in bone absorption and a 60% drop in blood levels. Thus kelp can be considered a true radiation antagonist. Kelp tablets, which are rich in both major minerals and minor minerals (the trace minerals) are found in health stores.
