Aging & Dying From Irradiated Food

We were warned about irradiated food in the 1950s.

This is a classic case of Medical Amnesia.

According to “No future for irradiated steak,” New Scientist, Nov. 28, 1952 …

“There is concern that it may be unsafe to eat irradiated food. The radiation produces chemical substances in the food (particularly in the fats) which could give rise to biological effects in anyone who eats them similar to those produced directly by radiation. Thus the peroxides formed are known to produce mutations; there is a strong suspicion that they might induce cancer, and current tests on animals have shown that they shorten life span. Tests on rats fed mainly on irradiated foods have, in fact, shown that they lived less long and were significantly less fertile.”

According to the same source …

“The principle of the process is simple: the food is given a dose of radiation sufficient to destroy the bacteria which would cause it to decay. But by an unfortunate coincidence some of the most dangerous micro-organisms are also the most radiation-resistant, and it is necessary to give enormous doses of radiation to ensure of a safe level of sterilization.”

Fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, potatoes, grains, flour, herbs, spices, meat, medical supplies, consumer products, etc., etc., etc., are irradiated in the U.S.

Some supplements (like garlic) are also irradiated.

Irradiated foods are supposed to be labeled in grocery stores, but restaurants, schools, colleges, hospitals, nursing homes, and food services are unregulated.

Supermarket shoppers are protected by the FDA, but kids in school are sacrificial victims of the food and nuclear industries.

The National School Lunch Program uses irradiated food (thanks to Texas A & M University).

      Almost all diseases manifest as a disturbance of the acid-alkaline balance.

      Hemoglobin picks up oxygen in a slightly alkaline environment and releases it in a slightly acidic one.

      Acidity correlates with GELATION, an anabolic process.

      Alkalinity correlates with SOLATION, a catabolic process.

      Excess acidity progresses to an ultimate state of GEL — a tumor.

      Excess alkalinity progresses to an ultimate state of SOL — an ulcer.

      Impeccable and dynamic acid-base equilibrium results in an everlasting colloid, the adaptability of liquid (SOL) combined with the strength of solid (GEL) — an eternal state of superconductive quantum entanglement known as the DIAMOND BODY.–e-books.php

      I. Ho Mien, E.C. Chua, P. Lau, L.C. Tan, I.T. Lee, S.C. Yeo, S.S. Tan, & J.J. Gooley (“Effects of exposure to intermittent versus continuous red light on human circadian rhythms, melatonin suppression, and pupillary constriction,” PLoS ONE, May 5, 2014) wrote …

      “Exposure to light is a major determinant of sleep timing and hormonal rhythms. The role of retinal cones in regulating circadian physiology remains unclear, however, as most studies have used light exposures that also activate the photopigment melanopsin. Here, we tested the hypothesis that exposure to alternating red light and darkness can enhance circadian resetting responses in humans by repeatedly activating cone photoreceptors. In a between-subjects study, healthy volunteers (n = 24, 21-28 yr) lived individually in a laboratory for 6 consecutive days. Circadian rhythms of melatonin, cortisol, body temperature, and heart rate were assessed before and after exposure to 6 h of continuous red light (631 nm, 13 log photons cm(-2) s(-1)), intermittent red light (1 min on/off), or bright white light (2,500 lux) near the onset of nocturnal melatonin secretion (n = 8 in each group). Melatonin suppression and pupillary constriction were also assessed during light exposure. We found that circadian resetting responses were similar for exposure to continuous versus intermittent red light (P = 0.69), with an average phase delay shift of almost an hour. Surprisingly, 2 subjects who were exposed to red light exhibited circadian responses similar in magnitude to those who were exposed to bright white light. Red light also elicited prolonged pupillary constriction, but did not suppress melatonin levels. These findings suggest that, for red light stimuli outside the range of sensitivity for melanopsin, cone photoreceptors can mediate circadian phase resetting of physiologic rhythms in some individuals. Our results also show that sensitivity thresholds differ across non-visual light responses, suggesting that cones may contribute differentially to circadian resetting, melatonin suppression, and the pupillary light reflex during exposure to continuous light.”–e-books.php

      Hi Atom,
      I have a green starfruit. What is it good for ? and time of day to eat ?


      • November 19, 2015 @ 5:29 pm Atom

        Star fruit is a Growth Zone 1 morning fruit that grows on a tree.

        It’s high in vitamins A, C, and B9, as well as calcium, potassium, and oxalic acid.

        Its oxalic acid is nephrotoxic, so star fruit is best eaten in moderation and not at all by folks on dialysis.
