Oil Pulling Its Benefits and How to Do It Right

Oil Pulling, Its Benefits, and How To Do It Right
Written By
A gift from India and brought back from the dead by a Ukrainian physician, Dr. Karach, oil pulling is nothing short of a miracle. It is so effective against various ailments that it is rightfully considered as an alternate medicinal treatment in itself. The best thing about this 5,000 year old practice is that it is neither esoteric nor expensive. Anybody and everybody can use it if they want to. To use it, you need only two things: 10 ml of oil you like and 15-20 minutes of time. You can use:
What Is Oil Pulling?
Oil pulling is an age-old remedy that uses natural oil to help clean and detoxify teeth and gums. It has the added effect of whitening teeth naturally and evidence even shows that it is beneficial in improving gums and removing harmful bacteria!
This simple home remedy can also speed up recovery from various diseases ranging from common colds to acute allergic conditions, bronchitis, indigestion to stomach ulcers, and headaches to migraine. The treatment involves rinsing your mouth with 10 ml of oil of your preference for about 15-20 minutes.
During oil pulling, the oils (especially oils with naturally antibacterial properties like coconut oil) bind to the biofilm, or plaque, on the teeth and reduce the number of bacteria in the mouth.
This treatment has its roots in ancient Indian traditional medicine system Ayurveda, considered by most Eastern and Western scholars as the oldest form of health care. The avatar of oil pulling popularized by Dr. Karach is slightly different from the original one, listed in the Ayurvedic textbook Charaka Samhita.
Nowadays, people have been using different types of oil and are seeing effective results. 
Sesame oil is more warming and may be more gently detoxifying than other oils that are “colder” energetically. It has a somewhat strong sesame flavor, which is a familiar food taste for most people. Sunflower oil has a milder taste if you prefer that.
You can also use organic coconut or olive oil as well.
Ayurveda’s oil pulling Vs Dr. Karach’s oil pulling
There are two differences between the aforementioned two versions. These are:
  • Ayurveda recommends the use of sesame oil, while Dr. Karach propagates sunflower oil
  • Ayurveda recommends oil pulling first thing in the morning (on empty stomach) right after brushing teeth. Dr Karach, however, advises oil pulling just before breakfast on an empty stomach
Which oil is more effective?
All 4 suggested oils are equally effective. Quite a few people prefer organic coconut oil these days not only due to its taste but also anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
What are the benefits of oil pulling?
Oil pulling is known to be useful in the treatment of the following conditions:
  • Common diseases such as cold, cough, allergies, headaches, etc
  • Skin problems such as itching, pigmentation, eczema, scars, rashes, etc
  • Respiratory problems such as bronchitis, asthma, etc
  • Headache and migraine
  • Tooth pain, gum diseases, dental caries
  • Back pain, neck pain, joint pains, and arthritis
  • Constipation and other conditions arising due to some problem in digestive system
  • Blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes
  • Piles
In addition to the aforementioned conditions, which studies confirm can be treated, prevented, or controlled by oil pulling, other conditions in which oil pulling might be useful include:
  • Chronic sleepiness
  • Liver disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Cancer
A survey conducted by Indian daily newspaper, Andhra Jyoti, confirms the healing properties of oil pulling
Approximately 2 ½ years after publishing an article on oil pulling and its several benefits, Andhra Jyoti conducted a survey to understand the following:
  • The kind of health conditions the procedure cured
  • The degree of its effectiveness
1041 readers responded to the advertisement sharing their experience with oil pulling. Among the respondents, 927 (about 87%) stated that oil pulling cured one or more disease. 114 respondents (approx. 11 %) reported that oil pulling did not provide relief from the ailment(s) they were suffering from.
An analysis of the testimonies of people who found oil pulling useful revealed that it successfully cured the following diseases: allergies, cough and common cold, gum diseases, dental caries, infections in the ear, nose, mouth, eyes, and throat, tooth pain, headache, neck pain, migraine, back pain, lip cracking, allergic sneezing, and fever.
Recently people started using organic coconut oil as it tastes better. It has a cooler energy than sesame oil, so it’s good for people who tend to have a warmer constitution or condition of heat. Some people have reported that coconut oil is more strongly detoxifying, which isn’t always a good thing for some people, so it’s best to be cautious and go slowly.
How to do oil pulling
To use oil pulling, follow these steps:
  • After brushing your teeth, and while on empty stomach, take 10 ml of preferred oil (1 tablespoon or 2 teaspoons) and put it into your mouth
  • Rinse your mouth thoroughly for about 15-20 minutes
  • Spit the oil after 15-20 minutes
  • Wash your mouth thoroughly with water
  • Drink a glass or two of water
Note: If you have had a cup of tea or coffee after brushing, wait for at least 60 mins before doing oil pulling. If you have had a breakfast, wait for at least 4 hrs before doing oil pulling.
Precautions

  • Oil pulling is not recommended for children under 5 years of age
  • Use only 5 ml of oil for children above 5 years of age
  • Do not gargle and do not swallow. More importantly, do not worry if you swallow the oil. Sunflower, or sesame oil, is edible oil. When swallowed, it is either digested or excreted naturally.
  • If the color of the solution you spit is yellow, it means that you have not rinsed the oil long enough or have used it in amounts greater than the recommended dosage. A white spit indicates that you have done the procedure correctly.

Pesticide Found In Milk Linked To Parkinson’s

Milk. It does the body good, right? Not always. Dairy is constantly under health scrutiny anymore and this month’s study into a pesticide found to have been used in milk decades ago is reviving that scrutiny. The pesticide, heeptachlor epoxide, was used in the 1980’s. It’s first used on pineapples. It made its way into the milk supply when cows began eating remnants of pineapples in Hawaii.
The study showed that non-smokers who drank more than two cups of milk per day were significantly more likely to develop Parkinson’s. The study originally was supposed to monitor the effects of aging, hence the average age of each participant was 54.
For the study, 449 Japanese-American men with an average age of 54 who participated in the Honolulu-Asia Aging Study were followed for more than 30 years and until death, after which autopsies were performed. Tests looked at whether participants had lost brain cells in the substantia nigra area of the brain, which occurs in Parkinson’s disease and can start decades before any symptoms begin. Researchers also measured in 116 brains the amount of residue of a pesticide called heptachlor epoxide. The pesticide was found at very high levels in the milk supply in the early 1980s in Hawaii, where it was used in the pineapple industry. It was used to kill insects and was removed from use in the US around that time. The pesticide may also be found in well water.
The study found that nonsmokers who drank more than two cups of milk per day had 40 percent fewer brain cells in that area of the brain than people who drank less than two cups of milk per day. For those who were smokers at any point, there was no association between milk intake and loss of brain cells. Previous studies have shown that people who smoke have a lower risk of developing Parkinson’s disease.

This isn’t dairy’s first run in with being linked to Parkinson’s. Here’s a study from 2007 that cited similar findings.
In this large observational study, we found that higher dairy consumption was associated with increased risk of Parkinson’s disease. The association was stronger in men and was mostly explained by milk consumption.
What’s further interesting is that the pesticide link isn’t full proof; in other words, the milk itself isn’t ruled out as the actual cause. The researchers were quick to point out that the study’s results could have been based on “chance.” And that the milk was never tested for the pesticide in question. In any case, heeptachlor epoxide isn’t used as a pesticide anymore.
Parkinson’s affects roughly 1 million people in the states and it has no cure.

& Deadly Diseases Caused by Bacteria in the Gut

7 Deadly Diseases Caused by Bacteria In The Gut
■ March 5, 2016 6:24 AM
Did you know the bacteria in our gut comprise an internal organ all of their own? We are colonized by ten times more bacteria in our gut than there are cells in our body! They play a profoundly important role in human health and disease. From helping us absorb nutrients, to synthesizing vitamins and breaking down cellulose; we couldn’t survive without this microbial zoo inside us.
Shortly after birth, we are colonized with over 1,000 species of gut bacteria. Influences such as vaginal delivery vs cesarean section, breast-feeding vs bottle-feeding, antibiotic use, industrialized processed food, stress levels, chronic illness and poor dietary choices all have a profound impact on which bugs predominate.
Recent data also show that toxic chemicals, like glyphosate, may selectively destroy healthy microbes, leading to further imbalance and disease. Bacteroidetes and Firmicutes are the main bacteria in our gut which aid metabolization of undigested food remnants. Healthy bacteria in the gut promote the integrity of our gut lining, preventing “leaky gut” and thus prevent antigens and microbes from crossing over into the bloodstream. They also contribute to our host defense by regulating innate immune system.
Did you know these seven deadly diseases may be rooted in abnormalities of your gut microbiome?
1. Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Inflammatory bowel disease is thought to be caused in part by aggressive T-cell mediated cytokine response to the commensal bacteria, which leads to chronic inflammation and damage of the intestinal lining. Another immune abnormality related to the development of Crohn’s disease is that certain fighting cells, called macrophages, may have trouble recognizing which bacteria is friend or foe. They initiate an attack on what they perceive to be an enemy, when in fact it’s just a harmless residential bacteria lining the gut.
In genetically susceptible people, inflammatory bowel disease may be related to this out of control response to commercial organisms. In addition, Seksik et al. found that the fecal microflora in patients with Crohn’s disease contained significantly more enterobacteria than in healthy subjects.1

In Ulcerative colitis (UC), the disease is limited to the distal colon. Studies have shown lower numbers of lactobacilli during the active phase of ulcerative colitis. Species, such as Lactobacillus salivarus, Lactobacillus manihotivorans and Pediococcus acidilactici were present in remission, but not in patients who had active inflammation of ulcerative colitis.
2. Obesity
Normal gut bacteria play an important role in development of obesity. Patients on a high-fat diet have higher levels of Firmicutes and Proteobacteria and lower levels of Bacteroidetes, indicating that obesity may be associated with decreased diversity of species. The ratio of Firmicutes to Bacteroides is higher in obese people and has been found to be correlated to body weight.
/56241213/Criteo_Passback_728_90

Clostridium difficile infections may be another possible cause of obesity. Overweight individuals have more short chain fatty acids (SCFAs) than lean individuals, especially a particular SCFA, called propionate.
Certain bacteria (Bifidobacterium breve, Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium pseudolongum) were able to produce Conjugated linoleum acid (CLA) in the gut. CLA may have an anti-obesity effect in humans. Another study showed that after eight weeks of feeding, L. rhamnosus PL60 reduced the body weight of obese mice without reducing energy intake.
Prebiotics and probiotics can also be used to fight obesity.2 Besides probiotics, certain gut bacteria could also protect humans from obesity. The Bacteroidetes phylum, particularly Bacteroides spp., has been suggested to protect against increase weight gain.
Fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) may also hold promise in treating obesity. Animals who received FMT from the obese twin donors developed increased body mass and obesity compared to those receiving transplants from the lean twin donors.3
3. Diabetes
Type 1 diabetes is a destructive autoimmune disease attacking the pancreas islet cells causing the inability to produce insulin. Healthy balance of gut bacteria may reduce pro-inflammatory cytokines to protect patients against the development of Type 1 Diabetes. These changes helped to restore intestinal mucosal barrier function.4
Impaired intestinal mucosal barrier, also known as “leaky gut” and altered mucosal immunity are involved in development of this disease, and many other autoimmune diseases. Abnormal gut microbes may contribute to the development of type 1 diabetes, since cross-talk between gut bacteria and the innate immune system is one of the triggers for destruction of the islet cells of the pancreas.
Higher levels of Bifidobacterium species decreased the effects of endotoxemia. Endotoxemia is a very pro-inflammatory process that occurs when bacterial coatings, called LPS, cross over into the immune system through a permeable intestinal lining. There is perhaps no more pro-inflammatory trigger to disease than LPS, which has been linked to autoimmunity, depression, diabetes, heart disease and more.
Endotoxemia is clearly associated with diabetes and obesity. Bifidobacterium is associated with improved glucose tolerance, improved insulin secretion and decreased inflammation.
4. Liver Disease
The gut and liver work closely together. The liver receives approximately 70% of its blood supply from the intestinal venous outflow. The liver is the first line of defense against gut-derived antigens and it is equipped with a broad array of immune cells; macrophages, lymphocytes, natural killer cells to accomplish this function.5
Gut bacteria play a key role in the maintenance of a healthy liver. Ethanol, ammonia, and acetaldehyde produced by the intestinal microflora are metabolized by the liver and heavy loads of these chemicals may cause inflammation and toxic overload in this filter organ.
Small intestinal bacteria overgrowth (SIBO) may play a role in the development of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.6 Small intestinal motility is decreased in the presence of SIBO in rats with liver disease. Interestingly, antibiotic treatment of SIBO may improve non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. In addition, gut-derived microbial toxins and other bacterial products may be cofactors in the development of alcoholic liver disease.
5. Chronic Heart Disease
Gut bacteria composition has a direct link with the risk of cardiovascular diseases. The gut bugs form trimethylamine (TMA) from dietary choline. TMA may increase risk of atherosclerosis. In chronic heart failure (CHF) patients, invasive Escherichia coli were identified.7 Increase in intestinal permeability in chronic heart disease may trigger inflammation, contributing to further impairment in heart function.8
Colonization with Lactobacillus brevis decreased intestinal permeability, whereas Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumonia, and Streptococcus viridians showed the opposite effect. Increased intestinal permeability, or leaky gut, leads to bacteria translocation (endotoxemia) which is an important stimulus for inflammatory cytokines to be activated in chronic heart failure.9
6. Cancer
It is well known that the presence of microbial pathogens or the disruption of the healthy microbiome may contribute to the development of gastrointestinal cancers, like stomach and colon cancers. It was reported that gut bacteria can trigger macrophages to produce products that damage DNA, inducing chromosomal instability in cells. Oxidative stress brought on by abnormal microbes may also contribute to inflammation in these cancers.
The composition of the gut bacteria is quite different between healthy individuals and colon cancer patients. Certain butyrate-producing bacteria (Ruminococcus spp. and Pseudobutyrivibrio ruminis) were low in the stool of colorectal cancer patients compared to healthy individuals. Butyrate is important for normal colon cell health.10
Two Prevotella species were completely absent from the colon cancer samples analyzed. Prevotella may help maximize energy from a plant-based diet. The higher levels of Prevotella in the healthy individuals may reflect differences in the intake of fiber and plant-foods compared to individuals with colon cancer. On the other hand, species like Acidaminobacter, Phascolarctobacterium, Citrobacter farmer, and Akkermansia muciniphila were significantly higher in colon cancer patients.
7. Autoimmune Diseases
There is a clear link to autoimmune diseases, like rheumatoid arthritis and the gut microbiome. In one study, joint inflammation did not develop in animal models who were germ-free.11 Rheumatic arthritis patients had significantly lower levels of Bifidobacteria and Bacteroides fragilis. In addition, increased LPS uptake through the gut lining is a risk factor for development of arthritis.12
It’s time to take charge of your gut! 
So, now you know how important it is to keep your microbiome happy in order to prevent serious disease. It literally could mean the difference between life and death.
A healthy microbiome starts with a whole food organic diet, rich in plant foods, healthy fats like coconut, avocado and olive oils, prebiotic fiber sources, nuts and seeds, probiotic-rich living foods, and a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables rich in phytonutrients and antioxidants.

Our Hot Radioactive World is Getting Hotter March 16, 2016 under Medicine Mark Sircus

Our Hot Radioactive World is Getting Hotter
March 16, 2016 under Medicine
Cancer rates go up with increasing levels of radiation and heavy metal contamination. Though Natural Allopathic Medicine has a full protocol for radiation contamination, and its cellular consequences, this essay focuses in on the use of hydrogen  and iodine to diminish the dangers of ionized radiation. Most people, including doctors, ignore the dangers of the radiation used in medicine as well as the increasing radiation pouring into the environment from the devastating nuclear disaster at Fukushima, which only gets worse with time.  
The point of this essay is to understand the danger and to institute the supplementation of nutrients that will protect our children from radiation. According to a 2013 study by the Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center in Norway, the oceanic radiation plume released by Fukushima is likely to hit the North American West Coast in force in 2017, with levels peaking in 2018. Most of the radioactive material from the disaster is likely to stay concentrated on the western coast through at least 2026.
However, this is not a future problem. According to professor Michio Aoyama of Japan’s Fukushima University Institute of Environmental Radioactivity, the amount of radiation from Fukushima that has now reached North America is probably nearly as much as was spread over Japan during the initial disaster.  
New results from a study coordinated by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the cancer agency of the World Health Organization, show that protracted exposure to low doses of ionizing radiation increases the risk of death from solid cancers. This has been known for decades but has been disputed over and over again so governments and the nuclear industry can continue the insanity of poisoning the world with cancer causing nuclear radiation. The philosophy and practice of denial are in full operation on nuclear radiation.
Published in The British Medical Journal, findings based on the most powerful study to date provide direct evidence about cancer risks after protracted exposures to low-dose ionizing radiation. “The present study demonstrates a significant association between increasing radiation dose and risk of all solid cancers,” says IARC researcher Dr. Ausrele Kesminiene, a study co-author. “No matter whether people are exposed to protracted low doses or to high and acute doses, the observed association between dose and solid cancer risk is similar per unit of radiation dose.” I have published many times the words of Dr. Boyd Haley who said, “It is the inability to see the effects of chronic, low-level toxicities on human health that has been, and remains, our greatest failing as intelligent beings.”
People who do not pay attention to the increasing levels of radiation from increased medical use of radiation and from Fukushima, which is threatening the entire world with eventual extinction of all life, are not interested in living as long as they could. One can do many things for one’s family in terms of protecting from the free radical damage that radiation exposure causes. One should not be listening to government scientists who still insist that increasing radiation will not hurt you. Radiation contamination leads to radiation sickness and that is a present and real danger, especially to those who live in the northern hemisphere.
Fukushima has spewed much more radioactive cesium and iodine than Chernobyl. The amount of radioactive cesium released by Fukushima was some 20-30 times higher than initially admitted. Japanese experts say that Fukushima is currently releasing up to 93 billion becquerels of radioactive cesium into the ocean each day. And the cesium levels hitting the west coast of North America will keep increasing for several years … rising to some 80% as much Fukushima radiation as Japan by 2016. Fukushima is spewing more and more radiation into the environment, and the amount of radioactive fuel at Fukushima dwarfs Chernobyl.
What is happening at Fukushima Today
The robots sent in to find highly radioactive fuel at Fukushima's nuclear reactors have “died”; a subterranean “ice wall” around the crippled plant meant to stop groundwater from becoming contaminated has yet to be finished. In addition, authorities still do not know how to dispose of highly radioactive water stored in an ever-mounting number of tanks around the site. Today, the radiation at the Fukushima plant is still so powerful it has proven impossible to get into its bowels to find and remove the extremely dangerous blobs of melted fuel rods.
The fuel rods melted through their containment vessels in the reactors, and no one knows exactly where they are now. This part of the plant is so dangerous to humans that TEPCO has been developing robots, which can swim under water and negotiate obstacles in damaged tunnels and piping to search for the melted fuel rods. However, as soon as they get close to the reactors, the radiation destroys their wiring and renders them useless.
What Treats Radiation Exposure Treats Cancer
What treats cancer usually treats or prevents radiation damages because the effects of radiation directly causes cancer. Exposure to radiation causes a cascade of free radicals that wreak havoc on the body. Radiation decimates the body’s supply of glutathione, which allows free radicals to run rampant through our body’s tissues and organs. Though there might be some kind of hormesis effect with an uptick of glutathione body defenses, it is vital to understand that glutathione levels cannot be sustained without all the precursors being supplied—namely selenium, magnesium and sulfur.
An important part of my work since Fukushima has been to put together the strongest protocol for radiation and heavy metal exposure. Both radioactive particles and heavy metals have the same or similar chemical toxicities. Magnesium, sulfur, sodium bicarbonate and iodine, not to mention medical marijuana, selenium and clay are the main medicinals in my protocol and now the newest addition is hydrogen, which we find is ideal in protecting the body from oxidative stress caused by vast increases of free radicals caused by increasing levels of radiation.
Dr. Ernest J. Sternglass, professor emeritus of radiation physics at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, in his book, Secret Fallout—Low-Level Radiation From Hiroshima To Three-Mile Island, indicated that the risk increased with each additional exposure, as the studies of Alice Stewart indicated it did. This clearly implied that there was no significant healing of the damage and thus that the cancer-causing effects of radiation were cumulative.
What people need is a protocol that is easy to follow, even easy for children. Two of the most basic universal medicinals (good to take for many reasons even if there were not living in an increasingly radioactive world) are hydrogen and iodine, which I have always used instead of antibiotics for my children. Iodine is preventive against infections of all types and in high dosages treats infections better than antibiotics.
Hydrogen – Perfect Medical Gas
“It has been demonstrated that hydrogen can selectively reduce hydroxyl and peroxynitrite in vitro. Since most of the ionizing radiation-induced cellular damage is caused by hydroxyl radicals, this study was designed to test the hypothesis that hydrogen may be an effective radioprotective agent. This paper demonstrates that treating cells with hydrogen before irradiation could significantly inhibit ionizing irradiation (IR)-induced Human Lymphocyte AHH-1 cells apoptosis and increase cells viability in vitro. This paper also shows that hydrogen can protect gastrointestinal endothelia from radiation-induced injury, decrease plasma malondialdehyde (MDA) intestinal 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine (8-OHDG) levels and increase plasma endogenous antioxidants in vivo. It is suggested that hydrogen has a potential as an effective and safe radioprotective agent.[1]
Molecular hydrogen (H2) has been shown in recent studies to have potential as a safe and effective radio-protective agent through scavenging free radicals. [2] Approximately  65%  of  the  DNA  damage  is caused by the in direct effect of free radicals, such ashydroxyl radicals (∑OH),  that  are  formed  from  the radiolysis of surrounding water molecules and that successively  attack  DNA.
Hydroxyl radicals play an important role in ionizing radiation-induced cellular damage, while hydrogen can transform hydroxyl radicals into water. Scientists have found that, “compared to cells pretreated without hydrogen, cells with hydrogen-rich water administered before irradiation significantly inhibited IR-induced apoptosis, increased viability of human intestinal crypt cells, significantly increase endogenous antioxidant, and decrease malondialdehyde and 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine concentrations of human lymphocyte AHH-1 cells.”[3]
Other scientists found that hydrogen protects mice from radiation induced thymic lymphoma in BALB/c mice.[4] Hydrogen was able to slow the rate of thymic lymphomas as well as prolong the latency period by reducing ROS, which is the main factor in inducing cancers. The Molecular Hydrogen Foundation lists other research indicating how hydrogen protects the skin and body from ionized radiation.
Use of Iodine for Cancer and Radiation
Dr. David Brownstein writes, “If there is enough inorganic, non-radioactive iodine in our bodies, the radioactive fallout has nowhere to bind in our bodies. It will pass through us, leaving our bodies unharmed. It is important to ensure that we have adequate iodine levels BEFORE this fallout hits.”
Brownstein also says, “The chance of a woman having invasive breast cancer sometime during her life is now one in seven. The single most important nutrient to halt this progression is iodine. Inadequate breast iodine levels have been associated with the development of breast cancer in both animals and humans, while iodine supplementation has been shown to cause cancer cells to shift into apoptosis or programmed cell death. I have no doubt one of the reasons we are seeing such an epidemic of breast cancer is due to iodine deficiency.” Brownstein has tested almost five thousand of his patients in his practice, and found the vast majority, over 95 percent, to be deficient in this essential mineral.
         
These are the two iodine products I suggest. The Nascent Iodine is better for iodine sensitive individuals and for children where lower dosages are needed and recommended. Lugol’s is less expensive and better for transdermal applications as well as higher oral dosages. When I take iodine orally, I also drop in a good amount of and exceptionally strong liquid selenium into the glass because even a small amount reduces the chances of dying of cancer by almost fifty percent.
Everyone should know that sodium bicarbonate is the ideal medicinal for controlling radiation exposure and is even appropriate to use in every cancer treatment protocol. The American Army has known for decades that it is effective enough to clear the kidneys of uranium toxicity. If one is unfortunate enough to be near a nuclear accident the first thing one should do for one’s children is throw them in a strong bath of bicarbonate.
Many Japanese survived the horror of the American nuclear attacks using miso. Clay baths and taking clay orally is also an excellent natural remedy as is medical marijuana. In terms of hydrogen there are several options. There is molecular hydrogen, negatively charged hydrogen that easily give up electrons, and a new generation of water machines, which will soon be on the market that produce hydrogen. Older water ionizers also give hydrogen gas but only if their plates are clean so it is best to have a self-cleaning model
Conclusion
A great crime against humanity is in progress. Governments, the nuclear industry and even the press are working together to deny people the information about the dangers of nuclear power, nuclear medicine and the nuclear disaster at Fukushima. They deny people the information that would motivate them to take defensive action to ensure the health of their families. For the harm that will occur to countless children, they should never be forgiven.
