Mike Adams: I've done extensive research on what's called a “metals capturing capacity”
of different types of foods. I call it the MCC, where I
test using a synthetic gastric-acid-digestion simulator that I built in the
lab. I test foods versus contaminants. I find out how much of the contaminant gets bound
to the food, and thereby carried out of your digestive tract
as insoluble fiber, rather than being absorbed through your intestinal
walls and going into your blood. This is a key concept to understand to answer your question.
Processed foods have very low capturing capacity because
the fibers are typically processed out of them. They're also
structurally compromised through processing. They're denatured in other words.
Ty Bollinger: Right. Which makes them into un-food.
Mike Adams: Un-food. So, if you eat, let's
say a processed-food meal or a beverage that is
contaminated with let's say 10 parts-per-million mercury, you are likely to absorb the vast majority
of that mercury through your intestinal walls that goes into your
blood. Or it could be radioactive cesium-137. Mercury, cesium, lead,
cadmium, you name it. Ty Bollinger: Whatever it might be. Mike Adams: Right, but if you are eating a diet of unprocessed fresh foods.
This is a whole plant-based diet.
It doesn't have to be 100% plants.
What we have found is that natural plants, fresh produce such as
strawberries, have very high natural metals-capturing capacity. They're
able to bind with the metals, mostly through physical
processes of absorption and adsorption as well. Some foods have selective ionic affinity
to specific metals such as lead.
Ty: Okay, which means that they? Mike Adams: That they have a chemical reaction
that binds up the metal. It's chemistry taking place in
the acidic environment of your stomach technically with your own gastric acid. So, strawberries
for example, this was something that I researched. I'm
still working on the scientific paper to put this out there, but
strawberries will bind with over 90% of your dietary mercury - strawberries. The reason
that this is the case is because strawberries are the only common fruit
that has seeds on the outside of the fruit. The seeds being
on the outside, how are they grown and how are they produced by the strawberry? Well,
there are strands, fibers that send nutrients to the seeds from
the center of the strawberry. The center is where it gets its
nutrition and distributes it through the fibers to the seeds. These fibers, which are transparent
practically under a microscope, happen to be very, very tough fibers.
They will not be digested by nitric acid in the laboratory. I can
take strawberries. I can mix nitric acid. We're talking like 70% nitric acid, a very
strong oxidizer that would burn the skin right off of your hand. It will not
digest the fibers in the strawberry. The fibers survive human digestion,
which is far weaker than nitric acid digestion; I mean orders of magnitude weaker. The strawberries
then will bind to the dietary mercury with these fibers.
That gets pushed out of your system through bowel movements.
The mercury is gone, it's out. It never gets pulled into your bloodstream through intestinal
walls. So, many different types of fruits and vegetables have
very interesting affinities to heavy metals. This is what our
research has really uncovered. The only thing that we've found better than strawberries,
by the way, is chlorella, which is about 98% to 99% efficacy,
but chlorella doesn't work for other things such as uranium.
Chlorella doesn't absorb much uranium; spirulina does, but not strawberries. So, one of
the things that I've done in the lab is whether it's radioactive
elements such as cesium-137 or customary heavy metals like
mercury arsenic and things that cause cancer, arsenic is linked to cancer, right? Oh, and by the
way, you know what tends to absorb arsenic? Fruit seeds.
Ty Bollinger: Fruit seeds, okay. Mike Adams: Fruit seeds, which is why some
fruit seeds contain arsenic naturally. There's arsenic in apple juice.
Remember that scare? Apple plants and apple trees tend to take up arsenic in
the soil, which came from the lead arsenate pesticides about
which we already talked. They tend to concentrate it in the
seeds because the seeds have a natural affinity to arsenic. But, if you can get apple seeds,
grape seeds, raspberry seeds, blueberry seeds, believe
it or not. We've tested all of these things. If you can get your hands
on these seeds, which by the way are removed from almost all of the foods that are sold
in the grocery store. If you buy grape jam, you don't want seeds
in it. If you buy blueberry jelly, you don't want blueberry seeds in it.
Ty Bollinger: And that's where all the good stuff is. Mike Adams: It's the seeds that bind with
the dietary arsenic and transport it out of your body.
