There has been a lot
of press lately about radiation from the Fukushima disaster being
found in our food supply. Many people around the world are being told
to avoid drinking milk and eating vegetables due to the contamination.
Even though our government is downplaying how widespread this
contamination is and the health risks this could create, we should all
be taking precautions to protect ourselves. No one wants to be exposed
to any avoidable radiation. Calcium Bentonite Clay has been proven to
adsorb and remove radiation. Washing your produce in a solution of
Calcium Bentonite Clay and water will remove radiation, as well as
pesticides and other toxins.
How does Calcium
Clay has a uniquely strong negative ionic charge. When activated with
water it works like a strong magnet, adsorbing and absorbing anything
with a positive ionic charge (i.e., toxins, pesticides, radiation).
The clay captures these substances and removes them as the clay is
eliminated or washed off.
To remove radiation
from your produce, Perry A~ Arledge, author of Living Clay,
Nature’s Own Miracle Cure, recommends starting with liquid clay.
This is Calcium Bentonite Clay mixed with water at a ratio of 1 part
clay to 8 parts water. In a large non-metallic bowl, mix ¼ cup of
liquid clay with 1 quart of water. Toss your fruits or vegetables in
this clay water making sure they’re completely covered and let them
sit for about 10 minutes. Rinse and dry them, and store them as you
You can add Calcium
Bentonite Clay to your milk and drinking water if you’re concerned
about the possibility of contamination there as well. Add
approximately 1 ounce of liquid Calcium Bentonite Clay to a gallon of
milk or water. Some people prefer to let the clay settle to the bottom
of the liquid and discard that portion, while others prefer to shake
it up and drink them together. Either is fine. Once a contaminant is
‘caught’ by the clay it will not be released, and the clay cannot be
digested by your body. All contaminants adsorbed by the clay will be
removed upon elimination. And it’s always a good practice to take one
to two ounces of liquid Calcium Bentonite Clay twice a day, to keep
your body detoxed.
Will any clay
No. When choosing a
healing or detoxing clay, there are several criteria that should be
followed. You want to choose an all natural, non-processed clay that
is very pure and uncontaminated, with a pH of 8.5 or above. And you
want to buy from a reputable company that provides quality control
testing, professional packaging, and has people available to answer
any questions you might have. While Calcium Bentonite Clay will not
interfere with the vast majority of medications, if you’re taking
medication, check with your pharmacist to make certain it contains
nothing that the clay would adsorb.
