Radiation Exposure and Resveratrol

Resveratrol Can Provide Resistance Before and After Hazardous Radiation Exposure from DMFP’s newsletter. . .

Clinical studies of Resveratrol have shown that its antioxidant power provides resistance before and after exposure to hazardous radiation.  Explosions and fires at four nuclear reactors in Japan have created widespread fears about radiation exposure. The reactors leaked radiation since a 9.0-magnitude earthquake, tsunami, and aftermath has devastated the country, and the situation continues to unfold as we prepare this newsletter.

In a 2008 study at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, lead scientist Joel S. Greenberger found that Resveratrol administered before radiation exposure enhanced resistance to radiation.  Colorado State University researchers in cell and molecular biology and environmental and radiological health sciences demonstrated that Resveratrol reduced the incidence of chromosome aberration in mice exposed to radiation. And a 2010 study at the School of Radiation Medicine and Public Health at the Medical College of Soochow University in China reported that Resveratrol’s ability to protect from oxidative stress is effective in protecting against irradiative damage.

In his book, “The Longevity Factor,” Joseph C. Maroon, M.D., renowned neurosurgeon and anti-aging specialist with the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, notes studies showing Resveratrol’s effectiveness in radiation therapy. “Results were positive in two ways,” he writes. “First, Resveratrol appeared to act as a tumor sensitizer, making malignant cells more sensitive to radiation therapy.  Resveratrol made normal tissue less sensitive to radiation, and this lower sensitivity would help minimize adverse side effects of radiation.” (by the way, he described and referred to Vivix and the advantages of its ingredients in this book, though he has no connection with the Shaklee Corp.)

Vivix is changing people’s lives in many ways:

Vivix Recovery Story – Kidneys Healed & Transplant Canceled

Karen Sandifer, a former Home Health Care Supervisor, shares the following story regarding Brandy (her friend) and Vivix.  Brandy was preparing to give her husband one of her kidneys, because he was at stage 4 renal failure with polycystic kidneys.

“Tony has been taking Shaklee Vivix since February, 2009, and guess what?  We went to see the kidney doctor to find out about testing me so that I could give him a kidney and part of my liver, because he was high stage 4 renal failure with polycystic kidneys.  At stage 5 you have to be on dialysis to live.  So we wanted to do a transplant before he had to start.

“When they did his blood work, they told us that he is stage 2 to low stage 3, and then proceeded to take him off the renal diets, saying he does not need any blood pressure medication and to enjoy life, because he hopefully had many years before he has to think about dialysis!  YOU DON’T GET BETTER WITH THIS DISEASE!  And according to the specialists that we consulted, they all said that THERE IS NO CURE!
