Information on Beta Glucan & Radiation from A.J. Lanigan
(Transfer Point, manufacturer) since the radiation crisis in Japan, dated 17 March 2011
I have reviewed a number of articles that are floating about on
issues surrounding the radioactivity issues currently facing Japan. Let me say that a lot of the stuff you are
seeing and hearing is hype and hysteria. Please take what I have here as more of a sane and factual
In a conversation earlier this week with Dr. Vaclav Vetvicka, we
talked about the recent events in Japan and what would be prudent to discuss as the many questions pour in
about or product. Below is
the gist of that conversation.
Current situations in Japan have raised the possibility of a radioactive
cloud reaching the US coast. We cannot help the Japanese fight the problems in their damaged power stations,
nor can we influence the winds potentially carrying over radioactive clouds. We can, however, prepare
ourselves for possible negative effects of radiation, both from the air and/or from contaminated
A major side-effect of irradiation is leucopenia, which is a strong
decrease in the number of immune cells and second, a significant suppression of immunity. Numerous
experiments performed all over the world have clearly demonstrated that glucan, taken either ahead of time or
at the time of irradiation, can protect bone marrow and significantly improve recovery of bone marrow and
other lymphatic organs. This
in turn provides the immune system with the support it needs to do its job, which is to keep your body
protected against other challenges.
Glucan represents the most active natural immunomodulator
known. It is able to give
significant support our immune system, regardless the cause of challenge; an infection, chemicals, or
irradiation. Clearly, now is
better than ever to use glucan as an immune supplement.
