Are you detoxing, or RE-toxing? Zeolite consumers urinate out the same metals found in the zeolites they just swallowed... then they repeat daily

Zeolites detox

(NaturalNews) While most of the natural products industry produces very healthful, nutritious products that help prevent disease in millions of people, the "detox branch" of the industry is rather sketchy. There's no better example of that than the zeolite marketers who claim zeolites function as "oral chelators" of toxic metals, removing them from your body.

This has been the narrative for years, but what they've failed to tell their customers is that zeolites contain the same metals found to be eliminated by the people who eat zeolites.

Instead of DE-toxing, in other words, you might actually be RE-toxing!

This science paper by Emmanouil Karampahtsis, Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine in Scottsdale Arizona, demonstrates an astonishing lack of critical thinking about zeolites and detoxification. (Paper posted on Natural News under FAIR USE for purposes of public commentary and criticism.)

Here's the summary of the situation...

Understanding the zeolite DEtox / REtox cycle in 7 easy steps

1) Zeolites contain high concentrations of aluminum (24,000+ ppm), lead (10 - 60ppm) and other heavy metals. This is not disputed.

2) When micronized zeolite powder is fed to human study subjects, those subjects urinate out high concentrations of aluminum, lead and other elements found in zeolites. (See science paper linked above.)

3) Zeolite researchers then conclude zeolites must therefore be an "oral chelation agent!"

4) Zeolite manufacturers market zeolites as a heavy metals detox dietary supplement, claiming it eliminates heavy metals from your body.

5) Millions of people start taking zeolites. Within hours, they start urinating all the aluminum and lead found in zeolites. This is called a "detox." To keep the detox / retox cycle going, they are told to keep taking more zeolites for a "daily detox" because these metals keep coming out of their bodies. The detox / retox cycle never ends, of course, because the people keep eating more zeolites containing the very same metals they're urinating out.

7) Voila! A "detox / retox" industry is born.

It's an amazing industry with high repeat sales, too, because the more zeolites you eat, the more aluminum and lead you swallow and then urinate out, thereby "proving" that zeolites remove metals from your body, see?

And because the metals never quite come all the way out, you obviously need more zeolites! Can I get a Hallelujah?

Documented urination of aluminum, lead and other metals after eating zeolites

From the science paper by Emmanouil Karampahtsis, he documents zeolites increasing the body's elimination of the very same metals and elements found in zeolites:

We observed the most urinary excretion with the use of the powdered zeolite preparation (Zeolite Pure by ZEO Health) as an oral chelating agent in the following heavy metals (mean percent increase in excretion): Arsenic 119%, Thallium 119%, Tungsten 99%, Lead 43%, Aluminum 43%, Cesium 41%, Barium 37% and Nickel 23%. The percent of significance in results, people that showed at least a 50% increase in excretion of the heavy metal during the consumption of the powdered zeolite preparation, in comparison to baseline, were as follows: Arsenic 73.7%, Thallium 73.7%, Aluminum 57.4%, Tungsten 68.4%, Lead 47.4%, Barium 47.4%, Cesium 31.6%, and Nickel 26.3%.

Nowhere in the paper does he describe testing zeolites for their heavy metals composition, nor does he acknowledge that zeolites contain lead, cadmium, arsenic and other heavy metals. Yet from his observation about people urinating metals after eating zeolites that contain metals, he leaps to this conclusion:

When properly prepared as an oral supplement, zeolite can provide support to the human body to rid itself of heavy and toxic metals with minimal or no side effects. The use of zeolite can be used in cases of lead, mercury or radiation poisoning to remove the harmful metals without further taxing the body.

How about a vodka detox for alcoholism?

By this logic, the best way to eliminate alcohol from your body is to drink more alcohol. This could be marketed as a "vodka detox for alcoholism."

Similarly, the best way to eliminate toxic pesticides from your body must be to eat more pesticides. After all, the more you eat, the more you eliminate. Pesticides, therefore, are highly effective oral chelators of pesticides!

Spread the word. Health conscious people don't let other health conscious people eat zeolites (and play the detox / retox game.)

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory 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.

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. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

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 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 over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
