(NaturalNews) Research published in the Journal of Medicinal Food reveals that spirulina protects unborn babies from being damaged by cadmium exposure.

This is a hugely important finding because cadmium, a highly-toxic heavy metal, is routinely found in rice and other common foods. Even organic brown rice often contains as much as 3 ppm of cadmium, Natural News has learned from laboratory tests.

Cadmium causes permanent kidney damage and bio-accumulates with alarming speed because it mimics potassium in the way it gets absorbed and integrated into the body's tissues. Even worse, cadmium has approximately a 20-year half-life in the human body, meaning your body will naturally eliminate half of your current cadmium load roughly every two decades. (Do not be confused by the term "half-life," as cadmium is not radioactive.)

Right now, our global food supply is heavily contaminated with cadmium, in large part due to the fact that so much food is now coming from China, a nation where cadmium pollution runs rampant. If spirulina can help pregnant women protect their unborn babies from cadmium toxicity, it could help prevent birth defects while dramatically reducing medical costs associated with metals poisoning.

Mice fed spirulina were able to protect their babies from cadmium-induced fetal damage

A study published in 2011 and conducted by the Department of Physiology, National School of Biological Sciences, National Polytechnical Institute in Mexico City found that rats fed a diet of spirulina ranging from 62.5mg/kg to 500mg/kg of spirulina.

The results were astounding. As the researchers wrote:

Treatment with Spirulina at the three highest doses significantly decreased the frequency of fetuses with exencephaly, micrognathia, and skeletal abnormalities induced by Cadmium (Cd).

The study goes on to conclude that spirulina vastly reduced "teratogenecity," meaning fetal damage:

Furthermore, Spirulina treatment significantly and dose-dependently decreased lipid peroxidation, which was dramatically increased by administration of the metal. The results of the present study clearly point to the therapeutic potential of Spirulina in Cadmium-induced teratogenicity and probably through its antioxidant activity.

The term "dose-dependent" means that the more spirulina was given, the better the results.

Organic foods often contain high levels of cadmium

It is a little-known fact that the USDA organic program does not regulate, or measure, or in any way limit the concentration of heavy metals in "certified organic" foods.

Natural News has found that many "organic" foods contain alarming levels of heavy metals such as cadmium, lead, mercury, arsenic and even lighter metals like aluminum.

We have publicly questioned the integrity of China-based "organic" foods, given the fact that so many of them contain high levels of heavy metals.

California's Proposition 65, which seeks to limit heavy metal exposure in nutritional supplements and herbs, have NO LIMITS on heavy metals in foods. (Foods are exempt from Prop 65.) So while nutritional supplements must meet strict limits on lead, cadmium and other metals, foods can contain ANY level of heavy metals and still be legal in California (and everywhere else, too).

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of NaturalNews.com, the internet's No. 1 natural health news website, now reaching 7 million unique readers a month.

In late 2013, Adams launched the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, where he conducts atomic spectroscopy research into food contaminants using high-end ICP-MS instrumentation. With this research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource now featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released ten popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
