Radiation Protection and Zeolite
Radiation protection is becoming a big topic in wellness circles. Especially as governments look closer at nuclear power as a greener option to our reliance on fossil fuels. With nuclear power comes a risk of dangerous radiation accidents such as occurred after the Japan earthquake and tsunami in early 2011.
Can a little known porous crystal called zeolite help you in a nuclear crisis?
A unique crystalline substance, pretty much unknown outside of scientific circles, and niche interest groups, could see a gain in popularity as nuclear fall out or radiation sickness becomes a concern. This substance, known as zeolite, has some unique properties that make it a viable aid in ridding the body of radiation once exposed. Radiation detox cold be a primary use for this substance.
Zeolites are naturally formed volcanic minerals with some very unique characteristics. They have a honeycomb-like framework of cavities and channels (often referred to as cages). The zeolite is one of the few negatively charged minerals in nature. These molecules behave like magnets, drawing heavy metals and radioactive particles to them, capturing them inside a molecular cage.
There are around 45 naturally occurring zeolites and over 100 man -made zeolites. There are also three different classes of zeolites with varying molecular chemical structures:
• Chain-like structures whose minerals needle-like, prism shaped crystals as found in asbestos.
• Framework structures where the crystal shapes are more equal in dimensions as found in chabazite.
• Sheet-like flattened structures as found in clinoptilolite.
Zeolites have been used in practice in many industrial applications in the past, and more recently as a dietary supplement due to its extraordinary ability for trapping, heavy metals and toxins.
The actual Clinoptilolite Zeolite molecule is shaped like a honey- comb and has a natural negative (-) charge. When this type of Zeolite is ingested into the body many of the positively charged (+) heavy metals, toxins, and harmful chemicals such as nitrosamines bond with the zeolite and are flushed out through the urine within 6-8 hours.
How does this translate into something practical when faced with a potential nuclear fallout?
The zeolite molecules, acting like a magnet with a negative charge, grab on to the radioactive particles which have a positive charge. This means that if you have ingested or absorbed radioactive particles, the zeolite can be ingested and potentially find and grab on to those particles and remove them safely through excretion.
Does zeolite work? Absolutely, zeolite has been scattered on radioactive spills to aid in clean up, and zeolite has been given to people orally to help internally. In fact, during the aftermath of the most famous nuclear disaster of all time at Chernobyl, zeolite was given to children and adults who had been exposed to radioactive particulate.
There are a number of zeolite products for ingestion available on the market in powder, capsule and suspension form. Although I have my preference, and have the knowledge and resources to have planned ahead, that may not be the case in crisis.
If you are reading this and you have time to plan, then study zeolite to make sure you are getting the best product available. If you do not have any time, then scour natural food or health stores, or head online to order any and as much zeolite dietary supplement as you can. Using zeolite along with iodine could very well mean the difference between sickness and relative health, for people who survive a nuclear accident.
Zeolite is emerging as an excellent radiation protection agent.
