|In this case it’s actually No Zeolite For The Japanese!
Mark Sircus, Contributing Writer
The medical Gestapo was recently spotted working in Japan getting the police to charge two people with the selling of zeolite. The substance, sold as “Premium Zeolite,” was billed as absorbing radioactive substances and allowing the body to excrete them within six hours. The two were charged with selling medicine without a license. A month later we hear that they are using tons of zeolite at the nuclear plant to control radiation. What gives?
The operator of the crippled nuclear power plant in Fukushima has begun dropping sandbags filled with an absorbent into the Pacific Ocean to try to reduce the danger from radiation. The bags are filled with zeolite, better known as the active material sprinkled in cat litter boxes to absorb odors. In this case, zeolite is meant to take up caesium that has been detected at high levels along the Fukushima coast.
Dr. Garry Gordon (who knows much more about detoxification and chelation than most other doctors and certainly more than medical officials who still see no need for heavy metal testing or treatment) has a lot to say about zeolite for detoxification and radioprotection:
“What is zeolite? Zeolite is a volcanic-derived mineral with porous structure, which allows some molecules to pass through and causes others to be either excluded or broken down. The term has been derived from Greek words “zein” and “boil,” which mean “a stone” and “to boil.” This term was originally coined by Axel Fredrick Cronstedt, a Swedish mineralogist in the 18th century. He observed that upon heating a natural mineral rapidly, the stones began to dance about as the water evaporated.
Zeolites have been used for many years in animal feed supplements, water treatment, radioactive waste treatment, pollution control, pet litter and odor control, agriculture, slow-release fertilization, zeoponics, soil amendment, miscellaneous agricultural applications, horticulture, aquaculture, thermal storage and solar refrigeration, natural gas purification, and removal of volatile organic compounds.
Zeolites are incredibly well suited for heavy metal detoxification and are considered 100 percent safe and non-toxic by the FDA. Zeolite has an “open” structure that can accommodate a wide variety of positive ions, like Na+, K+, Ca2+, Mg2+ and others. Basically, the molecular structure of zeolite resembles a honeycomb, with many negatively-charged chambers”
Many researchers have demonstrated the ability of several natural zeolites to take up certain radionuclides (e.g., 90Sr, 137Cs, 60Co, 45Ca, and 51Cr). Zeolite mordenite has effectively decontaminated soils contaminated with 137Cs and90Sr. Clinoptilolite shows a significant protective effect reducing radiocesium-137 accumulation in male broiler chickens exposed to alimentary contamination. Clinoptilolite supplementation in food eliminated 137Cs deposition in some organs and tissues… elimination increased and the radionuclide deposition in liver, kidneys, and femoral musculature decreased. The clinoptilolite decontamination effects were observed with preventive administration, as well as with sorbent administration, from 24 hours after a single contamination of brown rats.
Dr. Gordon believes that zeolite is the ultimate filter in our toxic world and clearly should be a part of everyone’s daily health and detox regimen as should clay and other similar substances.
Doctors Alexey V. Yablokov, Vassily B. Nesterenko, and Alexey V. Nesterenko agree with Dr. Gordon saying, “Natural zeolite (i.e., that found in volcanogenic sedimentary rocks) is a mineral possessing attractive properties that contribute directly to their use in the extraction of Cs and Sr from nuclear wastes and the mitigation of radioactive fallout. It is also as a dietary supplement for heavy metal detoxification, it has anti-bacterial properties, and it stimulates the immune system. It was used successfully during Chernobyl.”
And wow, even though they were arresting people at the start of this nuclear disaster, now lo and behold we find out that the Japanese themselves have studied zeolite and have made formulas with it to remove radioactive substances such as iodine, caesium and strontium, according to Tomihisa Ota, a professor at Kanazawa University.
Ota said his experiments proved the powder can remove almost 100 percent of caesium when 1.5 grams of the powder are mingled with 100 milliliters of water in which caesium has been dissolved at a density of 1-10 parts per million. The tests also confirmed that the powder can remove iodine and strontium. The substances used in the tests were not radioactive. But he said the powder can be used to dispose of radiation-contaminated water “because these substances have the same chemical properties, regardless of whether they are radioactive or not.”
Dr. Gordon, one of the most dependable doctors in the area of detoxification and chelation, has a program called F.I.G.H.T. Through his decades of work with doctors around the world he has developed a number of strategies for supporting the body’s natural ability to detoxify, which include the use of zeolite. He is a doctor in California who a person can turn to for comprehensive help.
