There is strong scientific evidence to support the view that taking TOXIN BUSTER™ charcoal can extend your life span! In one animal study, Dr. V. V. Frolkis, a famous Russian gerontologist, and his colleagues, demonstrated that the lifespan in laboratory rats increased up to 34% by feeding them charcoal in their diet*. Toxins, including free radicals, are believed to play a significant role in ageing, but these 'loose cannons' will form a stable matrix with charcoal in the gut until they are eliminated from the body.

Researchers concluded that the binding up of these toxins in the intestinal tract before they are absorbed or reabsorbed into the system may be one mechanism that allowed the animals to live longer and healthier. Both clinical observations of patients in hospitals and numerous animals studies have demonstrated that charcoal poses no threat to nutritional uptake.

Why we age

The human body produces a balancing factor of high alkalinity which is bicarbonate (HCO3). Bicarbonate keeps the blood alkaline. As mentioned before, in 1996, Dr. Lynda Frassetto of the University of California, San Francisco, published a paper showing how bicarbonate levels in human blood vary with age. The average bicarbonate level is constant until the age of 45, after which a noticeable decline begins. (This is the age when symptoms of diabetes, arthritis, hypertension, osteoporosis, cancer etc. start to appear).

Physical ageing occurs when bicarbonate in the blood decreases. As these levels decrease the body is less able to neutralise acid which accumulates as cholesterol, fatty acid, uric acid, kidney stones etc.

Richard C. Kaufman BS, MS, PhD (Bio-Nutritional Chemistry from the University of Brussels) has written extensively in the field of anti-ageing. He writes, "detoxification is an ongoing biological process that prevents toxins (from infectious agents, food, air, water and substances that contact the skin) from destroying health. Chronic exposure to toxins produces cellular damage, diverse diseases, allergic-like reactions, compromised immunity and premature ageing." ( JOURNAL OF THE MEGAHEALTH SOCIETY - July 1989 THE UNIVERSAL ANTIDOTE AND DETOXIFIER THAT EXTENDS LIFE: ACTIVATED CHARCOAL by Richard C. Kaufman, Ph.D.s)

A General Detox Plan

To counteract these daily exposures to toxins, Kaufman recommends using active charcoal either on two consecutive days each week taking a total of 20 to 35 grams each day divided into two or three doses. (In the morning, at mid-day and before bed on an empty stomach). Or, take about 20 grams a day of active charcoal in divided doses for several months. Follow with a one month’s break and resume the cycle.

Incidentally, charcoal should be viewed as an auxiliary to sound health practices, not as a back up for intentional indiscretions.

Antiviral Properties

Whilst photo-chemical processes now represent the most promising methods to inactivate viruses, in their article Buckminster Fullerene and photo-dynamic inactivation of viruses, the chemist Käsermann at Kempf working in conjunction with the Swiss Red Cross, explore a new alternative, namely the use of C60 – Buckminster Fullerene. A molecule found in abundance and almost exclusively in wood charcoal.

They tested a water soluble C60 derivative for anti-viral activity and this compound showed a potent and selective activity against HIV-1 in acutely and chronically infected cells. In part this was attributed to inhibiting the viruses ability to replicate and no adverse effect to the cells were observed. In fact, this isn’t surprising since scientists have long known that charcoal impregnated swabs should not be used in viral research, as the charcoal tends to shut down viral activity. This research looked into the action of C60 in damaging the envelopes that protect a number of deadly viruses including hepatitis A, B, C, HIV-1 and 2 and human Parvovirus B19. This latest research represents the expanding field of charcoal in medical technology but is really a follow up to the long-known history to the use of charcoal as a native remedy for a wide range of problems. The C60 molecule is abundant in TOXIN BUSTER™ charcoal.

It is of interest to note that the World Health Assembly has urged all member countries of the World Health Organisation to promote the use of traditional, harmless, efficient and scientifically proven remedies (resolution 44..34). Charcoal is just such a remedy – ubiquitous – unpatentable – easy to use – entirely safe (provided it’s sourced from a reputable organisation) and unchallenged as an antidote for poisoning. The world’s best biological clean up system.
