A recent EnergyNews article reported that UC San Diego chemists detected far more radioactive sulfur in La Jolla’s air than they expected two weeks after the Fukushima earthquake and tsunami that occurred on Mar. 11, 2011. Contrary to this disclosure, Mark Thiemans, dean of physical sciences at UCSD, told the media that he doubted that Fukushima radiation would be detectable in San Diego or on the West Coast of North America. Knowing that organic sulfur is a detoxification supplement that can sulfate radioisotopes like cesium and plutonium, it seems logical to ask whether it would be able to mitigate radioactive sulfur (sulfur-35).
Here is what Forbes reported about the health effects of sulfur-35 back in Aug. 2011.
Most universities advise employees to handle volatile Sulfur-35 within a hooded enclosure. Sulfur-35 is absorbed by the entire body but is of particular concern to men because it tends to concentrate in the testicles, according to a Nuclide Safety Data Sheet from the University of North Carolina Charlotte. Beta radiation occurring there could damage neighboring cells.
In response to my area of concern and interest, Patrick McGean, my organic sulfur supplier, stated that our dietary supplement cannot sulfate (detoxify) the radioactive form of sulfur. However, he recommended that readers and concerned individuals read an article published on a New Zealand website (Science Media Centre) that describes what we can learn about the deadly radiation being produced by the Fukushima nuke plants that, except for iodine, turns into harmless sulfates in our bodies if organic sulfur is taken twice a day.
