Glutathione,Thyroid Health, and Radiation Damage...



Dr. Jimmy Gutman on Glutathione and Radiation Damage: "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. 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." Glutathione is a master antioxidant, an important line of defense against diseases, toxins, viruses, pollutants, radiation and oxidative stress. Low glutathione levels are linked to diseases such as Cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, AIDS, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Atherosclerosis, pregnancy complications, male infertility and Cataracts. A Glutathione deficiency can cause a lack of coordination, mental disorders, tremors, and difficulty maintaining balance. Glutathione is continuously defending our body against attacks from disease, toxins, poisons, viruses, pollutants, radiation and oxidative stress. Without Glutathione our liver would soon become overwhelmed with the accumulation of toxins, resulting in organ failure and death. click here to read more....
