Antioxidants could provide all-purpose radiation protection
Date:11/4/2007

ng to Shamsuddin, their findings indicate that either topical or ingested IP6 might confer protection against ionizing radiation.

Ionizing radiation occurs in the environment in many forms, originating from both natural and human-contrived sources. In humans, exposure to ionizing radiation occurs primarily through therapeutic techniques (such as anticancer radiotherapy), and sunbathing. Astronauts, pilots and passengers of high-altitude aircraft also are inordinately exposed to solar radiation. Such radiation exposures have a cumulative effect, increasing the chances of developing cancer over time, researchers say. It is possible that people regularly exposed to ionizing radiation, such as airline pilots, frequent fliers or people who handle radioactive materials, might take IP6 prophylactically to prevent possible long term effects of exposure, Shamsuddin said.

According to Shamsuddin, IP6 could also offer protection against accidents or purposeful incidents involving nuclear material. It could also be advisable to use IP6 plus inositol as a cautionary treatment following a nuclear disaster or dirty bomb, Shamsuddin said.
