Firstly, let’s look at the diseases that have been reported to be caused by those elements. ALUMINUM affects the Zeta potential, that is the ability for nutrients to suspend in whatever liquid-medium that transports them. In our bodies, those mediums are blood, neurological and lymphatic fluids. If our bodies do not have the proper nutrients and ability to contain and neutralize aluminum, our blood would be affected. We could find our abilities to utilize oxygen and remove carbon dioxide impaired. That could leave us: 1) short of breath even though inhaling and exhaling fully, 2) with lowered energy, 3) feeling imbalanced and thirsty, 4) sleepy and lethargic, and 5) generally unsatisfied.
If our bodies do not have the proper nutrients and ability to contain and neutralize aluminum, our nervous systems would be affected. We could find our abilities to think and remember slower than normal. That could leave us: 1) more forgetful, 2) unable to maintain perspectives, 3) faulty organizational skills, 4) attention deficit, and 5) thinking in tangents.
If our bodies do not have the proper nutrients and ability to contain and neutralize aluminum, our lymphatic systems could be affected. Our abilities to cleanse and heal could be impaired. That could leave us: 1) sore and bruised, 2) fatigued, 3) easily burned and less able to acclimate to higher temperatures with irritable skin, 4) dry skin, and 5) sensitivity to light.
BARIUM salt is an alkaline earth metal that is toxic in mammalian systems. “They are absorbed rapidly from the gastrointestinal tract and are deposited in the muscles, lungs, and bone. The barium that is excreted is primarily eliminated in feces. At low doses, barium stimulates muscles and at higher doses affects the nervous system eventually leading to paralysis. Acute and subchronic oral doses of barium cause vomiting and diarrhea, followed by decreased heart rate and elevated blood pressure. Higher doses result in cardiac irregularities, weakness, tremors, anxiety, and dyspnea. A drop in serum potassium may account for some of the symptoms. Death can occur from cardiac and respiratory failure. Acute doses around 0.8 grams can be fatal to humans.”(1)
The FDA and EPA have done extremely little to monitor the effects of barium because the medical profession uses it so freely as a contrast for x-rays, and the military industrial complex is responsible for so much of it being released into air, water, land and consequently food. If barium were linked with diseases that result from barium toxicity, lawsuits would most likely flood the legal system. However, diseases resulting from barium toxicity are less than diseases resulting from mercury or thallium toxicity. Mercury is listed by the FDA as the most toxic element on Earth; a neuro-toxin. Yet, mercury is used in most injected medicines and amalgam dental fillings. So who is the FDA protecting? Obviously, pharmaceuticals, medical professionals and the military industrial complex.
Now let’s consider ways of preventing metallic toxicity. There are several ways that the body captures, contains and discards metallic substances: 1) ionic attraction, that is, bio-linked units of minerals and other complex nutrients that attract and attach to free-radical metallic minerals, such as barium and aluminum, 2) lipids, that is, fats that envelop free-radical metallic minerals, and 3) white blood cells that ingest or envelop free-radical metallic minerals.
Firstly, we must always consider that when a food is heated above 104° F, bio-links are disassembled, forming free radicals that must be reassembled if they are not to cause complications in our bodies. Therefore, raw foods are the only foods that do not tax the body. Raw foods also give our bodies more nutrients to correct imbalances, such as those created by metallic toxicity.
Secondly, let’s consider the raw foods that give us minerals for ionic attraction, fat to produce lipids, and protein and fat for breeding white blood cells. The most concentrated food in minerals is no-salt-added raw cheese. Because cheese is a dehydrated food, it is not digested and utilized well for cellular health even when cheeses are raw. Our bodies work very differently with cheeses than raw milk. Because cheeses lack most bio-active links that are in raw milk, the body utilizes much of it as sponges that attract and absorb toxins, including free-radical metallic minerals.
The most digestible and utilizable fat and protein are in raw eggs that can help us more easily breed white blood cells, and supply lipids to envelop free-radical metallic minerals. Avocado and butter supply the body with plenty of fat for appropriate lipid-production. However, the most aggressive fatty nutrients to dissolve and envelop free-radical metallic minerals are obtained in raw coconut cream. An animal fat, such as butter and/or cheese, usually should be eaten with coconut cream to insure that enough lipids are available to escort the toxins out of our bodies.
In extremely toxic situations, I have witnessed that some people’s bodies utilized cooked starch when eaten with plenty of raw fat, to capture, contain and eliminate free-radical metallic minerals. However, generally those people had less energy and experienced more fatigue, unless they were high-adrenaline-producing individuals.
Another food that offers our bodies nutrients to attract and contain free-radical metallic minerals is cilantro. It is best always to consume raw fat when eating cilantro or drinking cilantro juice. Also, consider that eating or drinking too much cilantro can cause our bodies to detoxify old storages of free-radical metallic minerals. The result of a too-aggressive metal-detoxification is irritability, fatigue, constant nausea, vomit, diarrhea, headaches, joint pain, and other symptoms. Therefore, I suggest that cilantro be eaten or drunk in very small quantities, no more than 2-3 tablespoons daily.
The free-radical metallic minerals that cause so much disease are poisons even when absorbed in small doses. The greatest feat of our bodies is to control the damage caused by daily absorption of free-radical metallic minerals and prevent them from storing in our bodies where they would continue to damage us. The Primal Diet may seem magical to most people but whether it will prevent a particular body from succumbing to the diseases from our pollution-filled civil world is not assured. The Primal Diet is the best defense that I have encountered and observed.
Now, we have to stop governments from spraying toxins in our air in the name of and guise of anything, including whether modification.
