AKRON, Ohio, Jan. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The new Low-Radiocarb™ Diet may sound like the old Low-Carb Diet, but that is about all they have in common. This new diet has nothing to do with carbohydrates or losing weight. Rather, it has the unique purpose of preventing cumulative lifetime genetic damage that could contribute to cancer or aging. And unlike most other diets which target adults, this new diet is primarily for children and their pregnant and breastfeeding mothers.
Most people are unaware that every type of food we currently eat is measurably contaminated with a particular radioactive material from the air known as carbon-14, or radiocarbon. These radioactive atoms get permanently incorporated into the DNA of every child's body and brain cells as they grow up. As these radioactive atoms gradually decay over the years, they will cause tens of billions of genetic damage events in every person. Of special concern are the hundreds of millions of brain cells that will be genetically damaged in each person from radiocarbon. This genetic damage may be an important factor in cancer and the aging process, including age-related mental deterioration.
Every adult alive today has built their entire body, including the highly important DNA which controls cells in the brain and other vital organs, with nutrients from normal foods containing radiocarbon. Unfortunately, there is not much they can do now to remove this harmful radiocarbon from the DNA in these critical cells.
But the Low-Radiocarb™ Diet, which includes low-radiocarbon protein, amino acids and nucleotides made by special new processes, gives future children the opportunity to permanently build DNA in critical brain and heart cells with up to 99% less radiocarbon than the rest of us have. Reduced radiocarbon could prevent genetic damage to tens of billions of their cells, including hundreds of millions in the brain and heart.
A unique benefit for children on a Low-Radiocarb™ diet is that once they are fully grown, they can quit the diet and eat ordinary foods, yet still retain lifetime protection to nearly all brain cells and most heart cells. This is because most DNA in these cells is now known to be permanently established in childhood, and does not "turn over" later in life.
The Low-Radiocarb™ Diet would also be recommended for pregnant and nursing mothers, not for the mothers themselves, but for their children who receive their nutrition indirectly through the mother.
High-protein drinks, food bars and baby foods are expected to be the first major low-radiocarbon nutritional products available for the Low-Radiocarb™ Diet. Low-radiocarbon animal feed is also in development, which promises a wide variety of additional Low-Radiocarb™ foods including meat, chicken, fish, milk, eggs and cheese.
The Low-Radiocarb™ Diet only involves replacing foods that are relatively high in protein with their low-radiocarbon counterparts. That means followers of this diet can continue to eat most other ordinary foods that are low in protein, including fruits, vegetables, fats, sugars, starches and vitamins. Children on this diet should continue to also follow other healthy nutritional guidelines.
Radiocarb Genetics, Inc. is developing a variety of affordable low-radiocarbon foods under the trademarks of "Low-Radiocarb™," "BrainGuard™," and "LifeBlocks™." These novel foods are specially made using patented and patent-pending processes that can reduce radiocarbon levels by up to 99%, while retaining all other nutritional value. Children raised on these low-radiocarbon foods will consequently suffer less genetic damage during their lifetime, which may reduce their risk of cancer, slow age-related degeneration, and help them live longer, healthier lives.Contact:Chris Williams, Ph.D. 216-365-8104 firstname.lastname@example.org This press release was issued through eReleases(R).
