Japanese atomic bomb victims who consumed lots of seaweeds, miso soup, brown rice (good for the bran in absorbing things), pickles & other traditional, whole, indigenous foods, fared much better, hell they lived & recovered, whereas their white rice, sugar eating countrymen did not do well, most did not recover or survive the aftermaths of Nagasaki nor Hiroshima. There is tons of studies documenting this.
    Hmm. Thanks for the info *she says while munching on a SeaSnax*

    But I wonder if sodium alginate gives people who are sensitive to MSG problems or if it is only the refined product that is unhealthy to many.

    I'd put my money on the latter... akin to the difference between chewing some coca leaves while hiking in the andes, and snorting lines off a hookers butt.

    Definately, it is the hookers butt that makes the coca dangerous.

    You can see the green zone is desirable, lower or higher is bad. You can have too much of the good bacteria, too.
    Here's the interpretive guide for the test, which explains about each bacterium: http://www.metametrix.com/files/test...Effects-IG.pdf
    Take a gander at Mark's blog today. That should give you some ideas.

    Hmm. That still leaves open the possibility of taking large doses of potassium with your large doses of sodium, if it's just blood pressure that's at issue from sodium intake. Has anyone with sodium related blood pressure issues tried dosing themselves with equally ludicrous amounts of potassium at the same time? If so, did it make any difference?[/QUOTE]

    Look up hyperkalemia in Wikipedia. Hyperkalemia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    One of the expected effects is cardiac arrhythmia, often followed by death. No thanks.
