Of the minerals inside the cell, all are vitally important, but magnesium has a role that permits perpetuity of function, and the lack of it will impact a cell’s efficiency and duration of its useful life,” says Fereydoon Batmanghelidj, author of Obesity, Cancer & Depression: Their Common Cause & Natural Cure.
Magnesium, the fourth most abundant mineral in the body, is required for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. Of the total body magnesium, 50 percent is found in the bone and the other 50 percent is found in the body tissues and organs. Magnesium helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, strong bones, a healthy immune system, regulating blood sugars, promote healthy blood pressure and helps the body keep the heart’s rhythm steady. Through studies, it has been shown that this essential element plays an essential role in managing hypertension, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and now cancer.
Magnesium has an effect on overall cell physiology that cannot be equalled by anything else in the world of medicine. Deficiency of this mineral causes the body to accumulate toxins, degenerate quickly and premature aging. Because we live in a time of high toxicity this essential mineral it essential for the survival of our cells that are constantly being faced with heavy metals.
To be able to understand how a deficiency of magnesium can increase the risk of cancer we have to understand exactly what cancer is. On an ongoing basis the cells in our body become old, die and are replaced with new cells. When the genetic material in the cell gets damaged or changes, this process goes wrong, producing mutations that affect the production and division of normal cells. This causes the cells not to die as they should and the body keeps producing new cells it does not need. A tumor or growth is then formed by all the extra cells.
Therefore when the body is affected by environmental factors, a diet lacking essential minerals and vitamins, molecules in the body lose electrons and become free radicals. These free radicals attack healthy cells to take back electrons damaging even more cells.
Research in Poland has shown that the inadequacy of magnesium and antioxidants are important risk factors in predisposing to leukemia. Research has also shown that many cancer patients when tested are in a state of hypomagnesemia.
Because magnesium is essential in so many body functions, anything that weakens this process poses a threat to the health of our cells. The deficiency of this mineral can cause our cells to calcify. Magnesium can be called the rejuvenation mineral because it prevents the calcification of organs and tissues in the body.
Good sources of this essential mineral are green vegetables because of their content of chlorophyll. The center of the chlorophyll molecule contains magnesium. Other sources are legumes, nuts and seeds, whole and unrefined grains. Tap water can also be a source if the water is “hard”, meaning it naturally contains minerals.
One would not normally think that magnesium deficiency can increase the risk of cancer yet we will find that just as severe dehydration or asphyxiation can cause death, magnesium deficiency can lead directly to cancer. It is known that carcinogenesis induces magnesium distribution disturbances, causing magnesium mobilization through blood cells and magnesium depletion in non-neoplastic tissues. Magnesium deficiency is carcinogenic, and in the case of solid tumors, a high level of supplemented magnesium inhibits carcinogenesis.
Researchers from Japan's National Cancer Center in Tokyo have found that an increased intake of magnesium reduces a man's risk of colon cancer http://www.naturalnews.com/cancer.html by over 50 percent. Several studies http://www.naturalnews.com/studies.html have shown an increased cancer rate in regions with low magnesium levels in soil and drinking water http://www.naturalnews.com/water.html. In Egypt the cancer rate was only about 10 percent of that in Europe and America. In the rural fellah it was practically non-existent. The main difference was an extremely high magnesium intake of 2.5-3g in these cancer-free populations, ten times more than in most western countries.
For all of these reasons and a hundred more, magnesium oil <http://blog.imva.info/medicine/magnesium-oil> remains the number one item in my cancer protocol and thus number one for radiation exposure <http://www.naturalnews.com/radiation_exposure.html> . Magnesium is our first line of defense against both.
It is in a list of medicinals that prevent and treat cancer that we find helpful substances that treat and strengthen us against radiation <http://www.naturalnews.com/radiation.html> contamination.
"In the years leading up to Chernobyl <http://www.naturalnews.com/Chernobyl.html> , some dairy farmers in Austria were using remineralization as a part of their operations. They added rock dust to liquid manure as well as combining it with compost, thereby removing odors and greatly increasing soil <http://www.naturalnews.com/soil.html> biota. As a result, cows had twice the normal lifespan and produced much more milk. Amazingly enough, after Chernobyl, the cheeses <http://www.naturalnews.com/cheeses.html> that were remineralized (as well as biodynamic cheeses) measured no radioactivity whatsoever. Austrians would stand in long lines in order to buy these safe, remineralized products <http://www.naturalnews.com/products.html> ," writes Joanna Campe.
Iodine is obviously not the only substance that we should run to in the face of increasing radiation threats. Magnesium is a vital mineral whose lack leaves us open to not only radioactive <http://www.naturalnews.com/radioactive.html> damages but also those from heavy metals <http://www.naturalnews.com/heavy_metals.html> and thousands of chemicals <http://www.naturalnews.com/chemicals.html> , which we are commonly exposed to. Mercury and now a long list of radioactive particles are floating in the environment <http://www.naturalnews.com/environment.html> like invisible clouds that have spread out everywhere. They are raining down on us, damaging and damning our future <http://www.naturalnews.com/future.html> . We can no longer be passive about building our defenses against the toxic <http://www.naturalnews.com/toxic.html> onslaught.
Without sufficient magnesium, the body accumulates toxins <http://www.naturalnews.com/toxins.html> and acid residues, degenerates rapidly, and ages prematurely.
Just about everyone who is writing protocols for radiation toxicity <http://www.naturalnews.com/toxicity.html> is forgetting about the importance of magnesium salts. Worse still are governments and the entire institution of medicine <http://www.naturalnews.com/medicine.html> that are purposely ignorant about magnesium, so they cannot possibly be trusted for valuable health and medical information <http://www.naturalnews.com/information.html> that will help us in our time of dire need. The need was dire before Fukushima but they did not want to admit that; they let the public get obsessed with CO2 emissions and said nothing about the mercury <http://www.naturalnews.com/mercury.html> . Now with radioactive nuclides steadily building up in the background, we are in trouble than any of us care to admit. Today the situation has gone nuclear <http://www.naturalnews.com/nuclear.html> and there has never before been a need so great for detoxification <http://www.naturalnews.com/detoxification.html> and chelation.
Magnesium is a crucial factor in the natural <http://www.naturalnews.com/natural.html> self-cleansing and detoxification responses of the body <http://www.naturalnews.com/body.html> . Magnesium is also necessary for effective chelation <http://www.naturalnews.com/chelation.html> . It stimulates the sodium potassium <http://www.naturalnews.com/potassium.html> pump on the cell wall and this initiates the cleansing <http://www.naturalnews.com/cleansing.html> process in part because the sodium-potassium-ATPase pump regulates intracellular and extracellular potassium levels. The healthy <http://www.naturalnews.com/healthy.html> cell wall favors intake of nutrients <http://www.naturalnews.com/nutrients.html> and elimination of waste products.
The involvement of free radicals <http://www.naturalnews.com/free_radicals.html> in tissue injury induced by magnesium deficiency <http://www.naturalnews.com/magnesium_deficiency.html> causes an accumulation of oxidative products in heart, liver <http://www.naturalnews.com/liver.html> , kidney, skeletal muscle tissues and in red blood <http://www.naturalnews.com/blood.html> cells, leaving them more vulnerable to oxidative stress <http://www.naturalnews.com/oxidative_stress.html> caused by radiation exposure <http://www.naturalnews.com/exposure.html> . Both radiation exposure and heavy metals produce oxidative stress <http://www.naturalnews.com/stress.html> through the creation of increased levels of reactive oxygen <http://www.naturalnews.com/oxygen.html> species (ROS -- oxygen free radicals, peroxides, and singlet oxygen). It is known that these increased levels of intracellular ROS are sufficient to trigger apoptosis (cell death <http://www.naturalnews.com/death.html> )
Magnesium good for your Health
The National Center for Evironmental Health Centers for Disease Control and Prevention studies show 80% of us are consuming less than the (low) standard minimum daily value. There is no other individual mineral to which an entire medical journal is dedicated. Of course, it is called, Magnesium. Yet, when has a doctor ever suggested that you take a magnesium supplement? Doctors and Dietitians are too busy suggesting that we should not take supplements and heal our sick bodies with the sick food that is omnipresent on the shelves of our supermarkets.
