Researchers in Japan recently published a landmark study which confirms that the dietary supplement chlorella pyrenoidosa is capable of greatly reducing maternal/fetal transfer of the deadly poisons; dioxins, dibenzo-furans and PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls)*.
Not only did the pregnant mothers who took chlorella reduce their developing baby’s exposure to these toxins while in the womb, they were also shown to have significantly lower amounts of these poisons in their breast milk.
While a number of previous animal studies have reported the detoxification capacity of chlorella, there have been relatively few that have documented this ability in human trials.
Studies published in the 1980s and 90s indicated that chlorella is able to speed the removal of chlorinated-hydrocarbon toxins used in the manufacture of many agricultural chemicals such as pesticides, but again, these studies were animal-based.
Chlorella is widely-used in heavy-metal detoxification protocols as research has shown it can speed up the excretion of mercury, cadmium and other toxic metals without upsetting the balance of essential minerals - a problem that is related to the use of synthetic chelating agents.
You don't need a degree in organic chemistry to understand the huge significance of this Japanese Dioxin Study for the health of every man, woman and child on the planet.
Dioxins, and their close chemical cousins known as dibenzo-furans are extremely persistent environmental pollutants that are produced as a by-product of numerous industrial processes that involve chlorination, including paper manufacturing and the production of any item made from PVC.
Not only are these poisons produced at the manufacturing stage, they are also released when these products are incinerated at the end of their life-cycle.
One form of dioxin, known as 2,3,7,8-TCDD, is one of the most toxic chemicals known to man, and is classified as a Class 1 carcinogen (known to cause cancer in humans) by the Federal Government.
