with respect to EMF protection.
Certain foods which are more beneficial than others in enabling your body to deal with the effects of EMF on your body.
Apples: containing caffeic acid, so citrus fruits, and vegetables such as broccoli, mustard, cabbage and cauliflower.
In a 2008 study published in the Journal of Biochemical and Molecular Toxicology scientists found that caffeic acid offered protection against gamma radiation-induced cellular changes.
Apples are also a source of pectin which has been shown to bind with radioactive particles to prevent absorption by the body.
Asparagus: Asparagus is particularly rich in glutathione, which can prevent and also repair DNA damage. Glutathione will further bind to carcinogens that accumulate and flush them quickly from the body.
It is also a source of zinc and selenium which also have a role to play in EMF protection.
Blueberries: Blueberries get their dark color from antioxidant compounds called anthocyanins; they are also high in vitamin C and they contain a phytochemical called kaempferol, which is believed to reduce the risk of ovarian cancer.
Cherries: Studies carried out by a research team at the University of Texas have discovered that montmorency cherries, are naturally high in melatonin (see chapter 3 for information on Melatonin).
Cinnamon: A 2009 study3 suggests cinnamon can lower your hemoglobin A1C levels — a reflection of blood sugar, and balance the effects of eating high carbohydrate foods.
EMF exposure has been shown to raise blood sugar levels, eating cinnamon can help you to keep your blood sugar levels stable and also provide powerful antioxidant protection.
Cranberries: Cranberries are rated high on the ORAC list4 for their antioxidant capacity of a whopping 9090. Studies show that not only are cranberries a powerful antioxidant they can also elevate levels of good cholesterol while reducing levels of bad cholesterol.
Animal studies also indicate that cranberries can protect the brain from outside free radical damage to prevent cognitive decline with age.
Cumin: This spice, derived from seeds, can provide powerful protection against free radicals and also stimulate the detoxification of the liver thanks to the antioxidant glutathione.
Cumin is often used, not just in curries, but in Greek and Mexican food.
Garlic: Some studies suggest that it can also help to control blood sugar, which has been found to rise as a result of EMF exposure.
Most importantly, garlic is high in sulfur, which produces the antioxidant glutathione to provide superior detoxification and protective benefits to the body.
Grass-Fed Beef: When you eat beef, make sure its grass-fed beef since it is a very good source of the antioxidant glutathione.
It also contains zinc and selenium, which are minerals that can become depleted as a result of EMF exposure. Compared to beef that is grain-fed, grass-fed beef has only 10% saturated fat as opposed to 40% saturated fat.
Mushrooms: Mushrooms contain high concentrations of the powerful antioxidant L-ergothioneine that can protect your cells from free radical damage and slow down chronic degenerative disease often caused by aging.
Asian mushrooms reputedly contain 12 times more of this antioxidant than other sources, including chicken liver and wheat germ.
Olive Oil: Olive oil is a potent antioxidant that provides two different forms of glutathione which has been shown to protect against free radical damage caused by EMFs.
For best results choose extra virgin olive oil which contains high levels of oleic acid and is known to have far reaching health benefits.
Pomegranate Juice: Pomegranate juice has been shown to contain three times the antioxidant activity of both green tea and red wine5.
Red Beans: While red beans may not have the highest antioxidant content, they are easily absorbed by the body and provide a great source of protein for vegetarians.
Red beans also contain soluble fiber which can stabilize blood sugar and they are high in thiamin, which has been known to help protect brain cells from damage.
Rosemary: In a study published in 2011 in the British Journal of Radiology, scientists in Spain found Rosemary to be very efficient in fighting radiation damage. Specifically, rosemary can increase the number of white blood cells in the body to fight disease and combat the harmful effects of radiation exposure.
Rosemary has also found to be effective in decreasing oxidative degeneration in blood fats in the body, a precursor to cardiovascular disease, while increasing levels of glutathione.
Turmeric: Turmeric is another beneficial spice that can inhibit chromosomal damage caused by radiation and even reduce the risk of leukemia.
It contains a bright orange spice called curcumin that can protect against the outside damage that comes from environmental pollutants, including carcinogens found in cooked meat.
Vegetables: Vegetables like cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, and kale are rich in vitamin C, antioxidants, and sulfur. Sulfur stimulates the production of the antioxidant glutathione, which is subject to depletion as a result of EMF exposure6.
These cruciferous vegetables are also rich in zinc, a mineral that can be considered to have EMF protective qualities.
Walnuts: Walnuts are a good protein source and contain omega-3 fatty acids that provide natural anti-inflammatory benefits to the body. Like cumin, walnuts also contain the protective antioxidant glutathione that protects from free radical damage at the cellular level. They are the only nut to do this.
walnuts may help provide the necessary protection to prevent the demise of cognitive and motor function in aging, associated with Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases, which can be the result of EMF exposure.
