Have you ever
walked into your local Dairy Queen and ordered a radioactive banana
split? Or possibly more likely, have you ever booked an airline
flight and asked for your personal 2 REM dose of radiation? Right
now, everyone on earth is bathed in a soup of radioactive energy.
There has never before been a time when it was more important to
cleanse our bodies of ever present radiation. Alpha particles, beta
particles, gamma rays, muons, neutrinos: the list is long and
puzzling, and most of it has nothing to do with human activities.
In Perry A~’a
new book Living Clay, you were introduced to the miracle of
Calcium Bentonite Clay. This natural mineral will do more than any
other substance (natural or pharmaceutical) to remove radioactive
isotopes from our bodies and to assist our bodies in returning to a
state of good health.
article is primarily for those of us who lead healthy lifestyles. No
matter what we do, no matter how health conscious we’ve become, no
matter what precautions are taken, our bodies are radiated daily. It
is crucially important to counter, to remove this radiation and the
resultant damage from our bodies on a daily basis. There is nothing
better for this purpose than using Therapeutic Living Clay on a daily
basis. So, just what is it you need to protect yourself from?
American, that’s YOU, gets a dose of around 360 REMs (millirems) of
radiation per year – roughly equivalent to 36 X-rays. About 200 REMs
of that comes from radon gas, a colorless, odorless byproduct of
natural uranium, found in trace amounts almost everywhere. The
radioactive decay of radon gas produces alpha particles (healthy
nucleus of a helium atom), beta particles (fast-moving, positive
charged electrons), and gamma rays (very energetic, aberrant, positive
charged photons). Radon is not a problem for some, but in many homes
it can accumulate to dangerous levels.
X-rays come in second, dosing a person with 53 REMs a year on
average. The next biggest external source of radiation is, well,
pretty much everything around us, contributing about 28 REMs per
year. The food we eat, the clothes we wear, even the plastic keys of
the keyboard your hands are now resting on, are all naturally laced
with tiny amounts of unstable isotopes, radioactive cousins of normal
For example, all
living things require potassium, and one out of every 8,550 potassium
atoms is a radioactive potassium I-40 atom, meaning that all food
emits a little bit of radiation. Since bananas happen to be high in
potassium, they are actually one of the most radioactive foods.
Eating 60 bananas is about the equivalent of having one chest X-ray.
Not recommended at one sitting…
cosmic rays comes next, at 27 REMs per year. Cosmic rays are mostly
protons plus a smattering of alpha particles and other atomic nuclei.
Their origin is not understood, but they come from every direction in
space, traveling at almost the speed of light. Cosmic rays smash into
the upper atmosphere, producing a secondary cascade of exotic
particles like muons, short-lived heavyweight versions of electrons.
Each muon has the same charge as an electron but over 200 times the
mass. As this cascade penetrates deeper and deeper into our
atmosphere, more and more of it gets absorbed by our bodies. This
means that living in Denver will expose you to more radiation than
living in a sea-level city like Miami. For every hundred feet of
altitude, the annual dose from radiation increases by 1 REM per year.
And, based on altitude, a four-hour airplane trip will immediately add
2 REMs to your annual exposure.
products like smoke detectors, which rely on a small
alpha-particle-emitting lump of americium-241, add 10 REMs per year.
Contamination from atomic weapons tests may sound scary, but they
contribute less than one REM – unless you happen to be wandering the
Marshall Islands barefoot… Nuclear power plants supply the same small
dose on average.
are neutrinos. These are emitted by the gazillions from the fusion
factory at the core of our sun. They pass through matter like a laser
beam through fog. Occasionally, a neutrino will in fact collide with
an atom, adding to your radiation dose. But don’t worry, you would
have to be alive for a million years to get the same dose from solar
neutrinos as you would get from a single banana.
mentioned up to this point has been about external sources of
radiation. In addition to that, 40 REMs of our annual dose is
internal, generated from the decay of isotopes incorporated into the
molecules of our bodies: a potassium-40 atom in the brain firing off a
gamma ray here, a carbon-14 atom in the liver spitting out a beta
particle there. In fact, enough radiation escapes our bodies every
night we sleep with another person, that we add about one REM to our
annual dose. And no, we don’t feel the need to recommend lead-lined
Radiation is a real health problem. Calcium
Bentonite Clay is the real solution. I recommend reading the book
Living Clay if you want to learn more about protecting your family
and yourself from our inevitable exposure to radiation. And if you’re
now ready to begin healing your body from damage caused by radiation,
I recommend you visit
