Does Glutathione Protect From Radiation Poisoning?
If you have high levels of glutathione in your cells, this will indeed help to protect your cells from oxidative stress due to radiation poisoning.
Immunocal is a safe, natural, and effective way to keep your glutathione levels high and thus protect you from the effects of radiation poisoning.
There are many clinically recognized states where a person may be deficient or lacking in glutathione. Exposure to radiation is one of these states.
According to the Physician's Desk Reference Listing for Immunocal, glutathione deficiency states include, but are not limited to : HIV/AIDS, infectious hepatitis, certain types of cancers, cataracts, Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, radiation, poisoning by acetaminophen and related agents, malnutritive states, arduous physical stress, aging, and has been associated with sub-optimal immune response.
Radiation is also a known carcinogen. For more information on glutathione and how to prevent cancer, please click here.
Glutathione augmentation with Immunocal is a strategy developed to address states of glutathione deficiency.
In view of the recent radiation exposure in March 2011 in Japan, many have asked about this specific type of radiation exposure from a failed nuclear reactor. Here's what Dr. Jimmy Gutman, world's most published author on the subject of glutathione, has to say:
"Human health can be adversely affected by exposure to radiation. This can come in the form of simple sunlight, to x-Ray exposure and more ominously, fallout from a failed nuclear reactor as seen currently in Japan.
Tissue damage, whether resulting in a sunburn or in thyroid cancer,... is caused by “ionizing” radiation. What does this term mean? It describes the release of free radicals from the molecules struck by the radiation. Most readers by now can easily connect the dots linking glutathione levels to protection from damaging rays. Raising glutathione levels protects cells from damage by the most dangerous of free radicals (the hydroxyl-radical) released when ionizing radiation hits us. Besides avoiding exposure to radiation, the next best thing to consider is limiting the damage. Our cells own protective mechanisms rely on glutathione to do this.
