While the effects of these are undeniable, the Chernobyl issue is a different story. First, it is very hard to determine the precise number of victims across a generation or even two. Most of the victims can attribute their post-Chernobyl symptoms to either the event in itself, OR, or to the very poor health management in certain parts of the ex-Soviet Union, delay in treatment, miss-diagnosed cases, poor distribution of medical supplies, etc.
Added Note: And yes, it DOES depend on the type of contamination. Those who died from the immediate radioactive exposure, at the moment of the accident, could have probably taken all the spirulina in the world and still perish. Beyond certain levels the breakdown at molecular level is lethal. My statement was clear enough... "Depending" was the word I used. I am not in the habit of easily stating absolutes.
Do a simple test if you wish:
Grab some spirulina and give it to a person who's body is filled with toxins and also to a person on a very particular minimal (BUT NUTRITIOUS) diet. My un-educated guess would be that the detox times would be significantly different, in favor of the person with a very healthy and minimal diet.
It is common knowledge that certain foods take a longer processing time in our body, and they release or lead to the release of more toxic waste. Absorption times vary also depending on the elements within our food...etc...
I fail to comprehend how you think is the "impracticality" of understanding and controlling these chemical reactions within our bodies...
Also, I still do not see how the two subjects we speak of exclude each other, but so be it Many impractical things I do seem quite practical for me.
ps: As per the change, you are correct. People change only when facing an imminent threat or environmental modification. Or not even then. But again, who said we should ALL survive? There is no contract, no divine agreement, etc. Some people will change, some not. Change is another topic altogetheredit on 26-4-2011 by Danjya because: (no reason given)edit on 26-4-2011 by Danjya because: (no reason given)
