Dr Smith said: "Canada should improve the guidelines on impurities in cosmetics so they better reflect what is truly feasible, then adopt them without delay".
The organisation says there is some progress within the cosmetics industry. Some cosmetic companies are moving towards plant-based colorants and away from petroleum or coal tar-based colorants, to avoid product contamination with heavy metals.
Others are asking their suppliers to screen for contaminants and source the least contaminated ingredients possible.
Why is there so much attention given to cleaning up your body from the inside out? In a word ‘pollution’. How does pollution really affect your body? Even though the body heals itself over time, there are just too many unscrupulous elements floating around in our air, our food, our water and the ground we walk and play on. Pollution is everywhere – it is unavoidable unless you live in a bubble world with filtered air and purified water and food?? Not likely, right?
Well, the unscrupulous elements referred to are real elements right off the periodic chart that you probably studied at some point in Chemistry class at school. Mercury, cadmium, arsenic and lead are serious offenders. These culprits find their way into our bodies and are very difficult to get rid of. The heavy metals are the real focus. Heavy metal toxicity is when your body has ingested or been exposed to too much of this stuff to stay healthy and heal. It gets in the way of your immune system’s job and clogs up the process causing all kinds of symptoms, ailments and even diseases. Toxic heavy metals are so very prevalent in our environment and in our bodies, that there is a greater chance that if you suffer from any diagnosed medical condition, heavy metals will probably be found underlying that condition. Many serious conditions have been cleared and cured after the heavy metals have been removed.
About 1 million people in the United States undergo heavy metal chelation a year to rid their bodies of toxic metals. The word chelate is derived from the Greek root “chele” which means “to claw,” and that’s exactly what happens during heavy metal chelation therapy. Heavy metal chelation therapy is the use of a chemical substance, EDTA, to bind metals and minerals together in order to expel them from the body through urine. Heavy metal chelation can be performed on both children and adults.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved heavy metal chelation for the treatment of heavy metal poisoning. Heavy metal chelation is thought to rid the body of excess iron, arsenic, lead, mercury, aluminum, cadmium and other toxic heavy metals. This alternative medicine procedure is also used for the treatment of arteriosclerosis, the hardening of the arteries. Although heavy metal chelation is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the use of chelation for heart conditions isn’t.
Many believe heavy metal chelation will help rid metal toxins from the body, which can lead to illnesses in the blood, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract, central nervous system, gallbladder, liver and more. If a person’s body is contaminated with toxic metals, heavy metal chelation is a viable and effective solution. A patient that chooses to have heavy metal chelation therapy will have a needle inserted into their veins, which is attached to an IV drip of EDTA, ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid. This procedure lasts about three hours. A full heavy metal chelation treatment will last several weeks and will take up to 30 sessions.
Because EDTA is a man-made amino acid, some fear that magnesium and other essential nutrients like vitamins B and C are removed from the body. That is why these nutrients are usually administered during heavy metal chelation.
Basically, an anti-radiation diet should focus on the following foods:
* Miso soup
* Spirulina, chlorella and the algaes (kelp, etc.)
* Brassica vegetables and high beta carotene vegetables
* Beans and lentils
* Potassium, calcium and mineral rich foods
* High nucleotide content foods to assist in cellular repair including spirulina, chlorella, algae, yeast, sardines, liver, anchovies and mackerel
* Cod liver oil and olive oil
* Avoid sugars and sweets and wheat
* A good multivitamin/multimineral supplement
Yet another benefit of the sea vegetables rarely discussed is their high mineral content, which is a bonus in the case of radioactive exposure. Consuming natural iodine, such as in the seaweeds, helps prevent the uptake of iodine-131 while iron inhibits the absorption of plutonium-238 and plutonium-239. Vitamin B-12 inhibits cobalt-60 uptake (used in nuclear medicine), zinc inhibits zinc-65 uptake and sulfur is preventative for sulfur-35 (a product of nuclear reactors) incorporation by the body.
Since nuclear workers are potentially exposed to radioactive sulfur, this means that workers in the atomic power industry need a higher content of sulfur in their diet. MSM supplements provide a source of dietary sulfur, but thiol supplements such as cysteine, lipoic acid and glutathione serve double-duty in this area because they help detoxify the body and attack all sorts of other health problems as well.
Say some maniacal world leader finally hits the big red button. Or maybe a terrorist takes out the local nuclear reactor. You survive the initial attack, and you're left to endure a world poisoned by nuclear radiation. How's that gonna feel?
Measure the dosage
When nuclear reactions get going, they spit out particles with enough energy to rip electrons off of atoms or molecules. The altered bonds produce ion pairs that are extremely chemically reactive. This is known as ionizing radiation, and it's where the problems start.
There are many types of ionizing radiation . Take your pick from cosmic, alpha, beta, gamma or X- rays, neutrons, or from a handful more. What really matters is how much an organism is exposed to a concept called absorbed dose.
One way to measure absorbed dose is in units of Grays (Gy). Another common unit is the sievert (Sv), which takes the Gy measure and multiples it by the type of radiation to calculate the effective dose in living tissue. The average radiation exposure during a couple of seconds of an abdominal X-ray is 0.0014 Gy it's a light dose, and it's locally administered, so it's not that bad. When you really get into trouble is with whole-body exposure, like, say, in the Chernobyl control room immediately after the explosion. There, you would soaked up 300 Sv per hour . But you wouldn't last an hour. The dose would be lethal in just 1-2 minutes.
It's sad but true that there are thousands of scientific references and medical studies out there on the fact that radiation and radioactivity can harm you, yet despite millions of dollars spent by the government to study radiation, virtually nothing is available about a detoxification diet or nutritional supplements you might use if you are exposed to radioactive contamination.
Here's some of the information we do know from the only book in the world on the topic. Keep this information in the back of your mind as it may one day help save you or someone you know.
Most people are aware taking potassium iodide (KI) or potassium iodate (KIO3) tablets will help block your thyroid gland from absorbing radioactive iodine should there ever be a dirty bomb explosion or nuclear power plant mishap such as the Three Mile Island incident. In 1999, another such accident happened in Tokaimura, Japan where several individuals died from radiation exposure in a fuel processing facility.
What people don't recognize is that potassium iodide or iodate tablets only protect the thyroid gland and do not provide protection from any other radiation exposure, so taking them should not give you a false sense of security. It's important to detox your body after radioactive exposure!
One question is, what do you do if KI or KIO3 tablets aren't available during an emergency? Interestingly enough, according to research by Ken Miller, health physicist at the Hershey Medical Center, he found that an adult could get a blocking dose of stable iodine by painting 8 ml of a 2 percent tincture of Iodine on the abdomen or forearm approximately 2 hours prior to I-131 contamination. Potassium iodine tablets are best, but if they're not available this is the next best thing.
An entirely different problem arises after you've been exposed to radioactive contamination because now you have to get rid of any radioactive particles you may have ingested through the air you breathed, water you drank, or food you ate. Some people suggest Epson salt, Clorox or clay baths to remove any residues on your skin and to leach out any heavy metals you may have absorbed, but the big worry is internal contamination. To gain some insights into what to do, we have to turn to the story of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki.
At the time of the atomic bombing, Tatsuichiro Akizuki, M.D. was Director of the Department of Internal Medicine at St. Francis's Hospital in Nagasaki and he fed his staff and patients a strict diet of brown rice, miso and tamari soy soup, wakame, kombu and other seaweed, Hokkaido pumpkin, and sea salt. He also prohibited the consumption of sugar and sweets since they suppress the immune system.
By imposing this diet on his staff and patients, no one succumbed to radiation poisoning whereas the occupants of hospitals located much further away from the blast incident suffered severe radiation fatalities.
Much of this positive result has to do with the fact that the sea vegetables contain substances that bind radioactive particles and escort them out of the body. This is why seaweed sales usually skyrocket after radiation disasters, and why various seaweeds and algae are typically used to treat radiation victims.
In Chernobyl, for instance, spirulina was used to help save many children from radiation poisoning. By taking 5 grams of spirulina a day for 45 days, the Institute of Radiation Medicine in Minsk even proved that children on this protocol experienced enhanced immune systems, T-cell counts and reduced radioactivity. Israeli scientists have since treated Chernobyl children with doses of natural beta carotene from Dunaliella algae and proved that it helped normalize their blood chemistry. Chlorella algae, a known immune system builder and heavy metal detoxifier, has also shown radioprotective effects. Because they bind heavy metals, algae should therefore be consumed after exposure to any type of radioactive contamination.
How you would die
Large doses of ionizing radiation in a short time period lead to Acute Radiation Syndrome (ARS), aka radiation poisoning. The severity of ARS symptoms depends on the level of exposure . A radiation dose as low as 0.35 Gy could feel a bit like you have the flu expect nausea and vomiting, headaches, fatigue, and fever. If the body is exposed to a higher dose, somewhere between 1-4 Gy, blood cells begin to die. You could still recover treatment of this kind of radiation syndrome usually involves blood transfusions and antibiotics but you could also suffer a weakened immune response due to a drop in white cell count, uncontrollable bleeding due to a lack of platelets, and anemia due to a reduction of red blood cells. You'll also notice a kind of odd sunburn if exposed to 2 Gy or more of ionizing radiation . Technically referred to as acute radiodermatitis, its effects include red patches, peeling skin, and sometimes blistering. Expect it to show up within 24 hours .
Between 4 and 8 Gy, however, a dose can be fatal but the route to death still varies on the level of the exposure. Patients at this level suffer vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, and fever. Without treatment, you could die just a few weeks after exposure.
The physicist Louis Slotin , who died of ARS during his 1946 research on the Manhattan Project, was exposed to a radiation dosage estimated to be just over 10 Gy of gamma and x-ray radiation. He wouldn't survive today, even with modern treatments like bone marrow transplants . Patients exposed to radiation between 8 to 30 Gy experience nausea and severe diarrhea within an hour, and they die between 2 days and 2 weeks after exposure.
Absorbed doses greater than 30 Gy cause neurological damage . Within minutes, patients experience severe vomiting and diarrhea, dizziness, headaches, and unconsciousness. Seizures and tremors are common, as is ataxia, or the loss of control of voluntary muscle function. Death within 48 hours is inevitable.
