BioLumina & Radiation

Spirulina & Radiation
Spirulina, the main component of BioLumina, is an excellent source of high quality protection in the human body. It is also exceptional for animals and plants. People have used it for thousands of years as a primary food source in many places in the world and in the last 30 years in the US as an incredible source of super nutrition. Spirulina is the only food other than mother’s milk that can sustain the human body!
Spirulina has been extensively tested and used for radiation exposure. The testing is not just in a laboratory setting but in real world settings. Most notably in recent times during and after the Chernobyl disaster of 1986. With so many people focused on what to do about potential radiation exposure here in the U.S. with the Japanese disaster, it seems appropriate to revisit this information. This article is a brief summary of what was learned from that previous experience.
Chernobyl was a huge disaster which not only affected hundreds of thousands of people, but is still affecting many people as well as the environment. Many years later, millions of people are still living in radioactive areas. In over 11,000 square miles, there is water, food and soil contamination. When the meltdown happened at Chernobyl in the Ukraine, the neighboring state of Belarus received about 70% of the fallout and was heavily affected as a result. Over 160,000 children and 150,000 cleanup workers were exposed to radiation poisoning which produced higher incidences of leukemia, anemia, thyroid disease, various cancers and compromised immune systems.
Due to donations of Spirulina from other countries, much work was done with those most affected including many children. Some of the most significant results were:
  • Enhanced immune systems
  • Reduced radioactivity
  • Regeneration of bone marrow
  • Regeneration of the liver
  • Increased white blood cell counts
  • Reduced urine radioactivity levels
In fact, the radioactivity in children’s urine samples was decreased by 50% in only 20 days! This was achieved with a dose of only 5 grams per day (about a couple of teaspoons). One of the amazing things the researchers found was that the healing effects were occurring even with advanced cases and even when the exposure to radiation was on-going through contaminated food and water. Other findings were that allergic reactions decreased and heavy metals loads in the body were decreased. A 1993 report concluded: Use of Spirulina decreases radioactive dose load received from food contaminated with radionuclides, Cesium-137 and Strontium-90. Spirulina is favorable for normalizing the adaptive potential of children’s bodies in conditions of long-lived low dose radiation.
Additionally, Spirulina was found to assist in absorption of other nutrients (from other foods) and lessen the damage to kidneys from toxic loads which is important since the kidneys are among the first organs to be affected by radiation. These research findings were impressive enough that a Russian patent was awarded for Spirulina as a medicine to reduce allergic reactions from radiation sickness.
The bottom line on all the research is that we still don’t know all of the answers as to why Spirulina does all of the things it does, we just know that it works! As a caution, Spirulina is a crop, so at different times of the year, the nutritional profile will be quite different. There has also been a big influx of cheap Chinese Spirulina into the US market in the last 10 years. It has been found to contain high amounts of lead and other heavy metals. With everything that’s going on in the world today, it’s wise to have some BioLumina (Spirulina with the highest nutritional profile) in your diet!
