Hence, people often undertake a number of calorie-limiting diets and fasting regimes, which also may include connecting with the forests and oceans or communing with animals out in the wilds.

Danger and Risk from Nuclear Fission Products

Some believe low, cumulative doses of radiation from dietary exposures are one-hundred to one-thousand times more dangerous than brief, high exposures as in the case of atomic bomb blasts or x-rays. It is known, in fact, that exposure to nuclear fission products impair the body’s defenses against cancer by depleting it of protective enzymes such as superoxide dismutase.
