Zeewier tegen radioactieve straling

Planten tegen radioactiviteit, natuurlijk moeten we dan aan zeewier denken. Als ze dan maar niet geoogst zijn in de buurt van Fukoshima. Hier dan wat de Amerikaanse herborist Michael Tierra er over zegt.

Kombu Seaweed (Laminaria japonica)

The Japanese are probably among the world’s main consumers of edible seaweeds. We in the West are familiar with nori seaweed as the outer wrapper of sushi and various other seaweeds used as a stock in miso soup. The most well known seaweed is kelp, known in Japanese as kombu. I’m not sure how much research is available to back up these claims, but it is widely understood that kelp’s alginates offer the best protection from radiation and environmental pollutants. Alginates bind with heavy metals and radioactive substances and prepare them for excretion from the body.

Chlorella (Chlorella pyrenoidosa)
According to my colleague Roy Upton, line director of Planetary Formulas and director of the American Herbal Pharmacopeia, chlorella was first developed by the Japanese as an antidote and treatment against atomic radiation. This makes it one of the best nutritional supplements to take for the prevention and treatment from radiation exposure. While iodine pills primarily affect the thyroid gland, these supplements are of great health benefit to the whole body.
By exploring these herbs and supplements, we can at least turn a tragedy into an opportunity to enhance our health in all ways, including offsetting the recent threat of radiation from failed nuclear power sites in Japan.
