Natural News Human-induced pollution has greatly affected the Greenland ice sheet and the whole Arctic region over the last few decades.

Back in the late 1950s, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers built Camp Century, an army base located just below the surface of the ice sheet. The cavernous army base, big enough to accommodate up to 200 people, was home to trucks, tunnels, and even a nuclear reactor. Disguised as a research station, the army base utilized the region as a test site for deploying nuclear missiles. However, when the ice sheets started shifting, the army was forced to abandon the camp in 1967, leaving behind radioactive cooling water, diesel fuel, human waste, and other toxic compounds while accumulating snow and ice buried the camp.

Fast forward to recent years and the problem on the remaining toxic wastes persists. In fact, a study published last year found that the rapidly shifting and melting Arctic ice caps may well reveal the army base by the end of the century, potentially exposing the people to a plethora of toxic chemicals and pollutants long buried in the ice. The already worsening global warming is also expected to generate more cracks on the Greenland ice sheet, an expert cautioned.

How to block nearly all the mercury in your diet using common, everyday foods by NaturalNews

Captures over 95% of dietary mercury

In my tests, strawberries were able to capture over 95% of all the mercury added to the gastric acid solution in a human digestion simulator.

This effect was also confirmed for freeze-dried strawberries but not strawberry juice because pure juice lacks fibers (pulp).

Why strawberries? Because strawberries are the only common fruit with seeds on the outside. Under a microscope, you can see that each tiny strawberry seed is connected to the center of the strawberry via a bundle of plant fibers. These fibers, it turns out, are incredibly strong and are not easily digested in human digestion. They pass through you largely intact, much like psyllium husk fibers or insoluble vegetable fibers.

Isolated under a microscope, these strawberry fibers are also translucent, by the way. And what’s really amazing is that they even resist digestion with nitric acid. Somehow, these fibers are amazingly strong and resilient, yet nearly invisible to the naked eye.

In the gastrointestinal tract, they function as “mercury sponges” that mop up mercury with amazing efficiency.

The percentage describes the percent of mercury “captured” by the substance being tested and thereby prevented from being absorbed. Scientific papers describing this research are forthcoming later this year.

Natural News : As Fukushima continues to leak radiation, protect yourself with Bentonite Clay

The amazing healing power of bentonite clay

Healing clays have been traditionally used as natural medicine by mankind for thousands of years and are still used regularly by people around the world for their healing and health promoting properties. Bentonite is one of the best of those healing clays and is part of a class of clay minerals known as smectite.

Bentonite clay is made up of flat rectangular particles, which, when hydrated, have a powerful negative charge, giving them an amazing ability to pull to their surface, and hold on to, positively charged ions, similar to the way a magnet will pull and hold on to iron filings.

This makes bentonite clay a powerful therapy that can be used to not only remove radiation from the body but also heavy metals, pollutants, bacteria, fungus, viruses and even parasites. Bentonite clay can be used internally, mixed with water, or externally in baths as well as in poultices and compresses.

Bentonite clay has been found to be a simple and safe treatment for a wide range of health issues and can be useful for adults, children and pets. For example, clay baths have been found by many parents of autistic children to often provide positive results, because the clay removes mercury as well as other heavy metals and pollutants.

While most of us have no problem using clay externally, the prospect of consuming clay can be a little daunting, but the health benefits are real and the taste is not so bad. If clay is to be consumed, ensure that it is calcium bentonite clay (not sodium bentonite, which is not suitable for consumption). Never let bentonite clay come into contact with metal, and ensure that plastic or glass are used to mix and store it. When taking clay internally, mix between 1 teaspoon and 1 tablespoon in 8 oz of water and consume at least two hours away from taking any food, supplements or medication.
