The earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan March 11, 2011 caused equipment at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, located in the northeastern area of Japan, to fail. Three of Fukushima's six reactors experienced a full nuclear meltdown which released deadly cancer-causing radioactive isotopes like Plutonium, Strontium and Cesium-137 (Cs-137).

More radioactive material was released into the air when the containment vessels were vented to reduce gaseous pressure, and radioactive material spilled into the water when contaminated coolant water was discharged into the ocean. Like the 1986 nuclear disaster at Chernobyl, the Fukushima meltdown is classified as a major accident, or Level 7–the highest classification recognized by the International Nuclear Event Scale.

At this point, no one knows the long-term impact of radiation leaked from the Fukushima reactors. For some, the full effect may not be known until years from now since cancer that develops as a result of radioactive contamination often does not surface for many years. Experts continue to monitor the situation, and many citizens are attempting to determine, for themselves, the level of radioactive contamination near their homes.

Elevated levels of radioactive contamination have been detected in various areas of Japan (1), as well as in Hawaii and even in some water and milk sources in the United States (2). The problem is, radioactive isotopes that are released by such a disaster remain active for many years, and enter the soil, water and air–all of which can travel thousands of miles. This means the food grown in the ground may be contaminated, as well as the livestock that eat the grass and grain, the fish that swim in the sea, even rainwater and the air we breathe.

Although the radiation danger is greater in Japan where the accident occurred, its measurable effects may be evident in other parts of the world for many years. Some scientists feel the Fukushima disaster could be more far-reaching and deadly than the nuclear accident at Chernobyl in 1986 (3).

According to Al Jazeera correspondent Steve Chao, reporting in September, 2011: "At least one billion becquerels of radiation continue to leak from Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant each day even though it is now more than five months after the March earthquake and tsunami that damaged the facility. Experts say that the total radiation leaked will eventually exceed the amounts released from the Chernobyl disaster ..." (2)

A February 3, 2012 CBSnews.com report states that radioactive water continues to leak at the crippled nuclear plant. "TEPCO found that 8.5 tons of radioactive water had leaked earlier in the week after a pipe became detached at Unit 4, one of the plant's six reactors. The company earlier had estimated that only a few gallons (liters) had leaked." The report continues to state that the structural integrity of the damaged Unit 4 reactor building is a major concern among experts since a collapse of its spent fuel cooling pool could cause a disaster worse than the three reactor meltdown.

Shortly after the nuclear disaster at Fukushima, Professor Dimitre Kirtchev discovered a particular pectin that is pharmaceutical-grade, highly soluble and ideal for treating people exposed to radiation. This pectin, now the main ingredient in ProPectin™, comes from apples grown in one part of the world where conditions produce pectin so potent it is actually too strong for use in making jams and jellies. It takes 250 kilos of apples to make one kilo of ProPectin.

A six-step refinement process turns this powerful, raw apple pectin into a concentrated powder that can easily and quickly be mixed in a glass of water. It tastes great–like a mild, applesauce-flavored nectar–which makes it an ideal product to give children. When consumed, ProPectin is immediately absorbed, binds with Cs-137 in a process called chelation, and helps to flush it from the body. ProPectin does not remove important trace elements needed in the body and has no side effects or contraindications.

There is a limited supply of this pure, pharmaceutical-grade pectin product. It is important for you to act now in obtaining this product for you and your family.

If you live in Japan or travel there frequently, ProPectin™ can be an effective and immediate way to help combat the deadly effects of radiation contamination caused by the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

In the 1960s, studies revealed that pectins helped to eliminate the radionuclides Strontium, Cesium and Cobalt, and decreased the absorption of lead. This finding was the basis for treating people exposed to radiation following the 1986 disaster at Chernobyl. Researchers at the Institute of Biophysics and other research centers have confirmed these findings. (1)

Apple pectin's ability to help the body decrease levels of Cs-137, one of the deadliest radionuclides, has been documented in clinical studies performed on thousands of children exposed to radiation after Chernobyl. Vassily B. Nesterenko and Alexey V. Nesterenko, of the Institute of Radiation Safety (BELRAD) in Minsk, Belarus, report that:

"From 1996 to 2007 a total of more than 160,000 Belarusian children received pectin food additives during 18 to 25 days of treatment (5 g. twice a day). As a result, levels of CS-137 in children's organs decreased after each course of pectin additives by an average of 30 to 40 percent." (2)

Other studies show even more impressive results:

"In June-July 2001 BELRAD...conducted a placebo-controlled double-blind study of 615 children with internal contamination who were treated with [apple pectin] (5g twice a day) for a 3-week period. In children taking the [apple pectin] (together with clean food) Cs-137 levels were lowered much more effectively than in the control group, who had clean food combined with a placebo." An adjacent chart shows a decrease of 63.6% compared with the placebo decrease of only 13.9% after only 21 days–results 4.5 times more effective.(3)

Cesium-137 is a radioactive isotope of cesium which is formed as a fission product by nuclear fission. It has a half-life of about 30.17 years. Of the radioactive isotopes released during the Fukushima meltdown, Cesium-137 causes the largest concerns because of its harmful effect on agriculture and stock farming, and, therefore, human life, for decades. Due to the chemical nature of Cesium, it moves easily through the environment. A report released by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (November 4, 2011) states that: "Cesium-137 strongly contaminated the soils in large areas of eastern and northeastern Japan ... The soils around Fukushima NPP and neighboring prefectures have been extensively contaminated...." (1)

(1) http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2011/11/11/1112058108.abstract

Cesium-137 enters the body through consumption of food and water that is contaminated with Cesium-137, or by inhaling contaminated dust. If it enters the body, this radioactive isotope is distributed fairly uniformly throughout the body's soft tissues. Slightly higher concentrations of the metal are found in muscle, while slightly lower concentrations are found in bone and fat. Exposure to radiation from Cesium-137 results in an increased risk of cancer. (1)

Carcinogenic effects similar to those observed in Japanese survivors of the atomic bombing incidents might be expected among individuals acutely exposed to very high levels of radiation from a radioactive Cesium source. Infants born to atomic bomb survivors exposed to high doses of ionizing radiation while pregnant showed later signs of decreased mental abilities. (2)

In July 2011, meat from 11 cows shipped to Tokyo from Fukushima prefecture was found to have three to six times the legal limit of 500 becquerels per kilogram of radioactive Cesium. (3)

One of the most poisonous isotopes, Cs-137, is now in the soil, the air, the water and the food in Japan. According to David McNeill in an August 29, 2011 story that appeared in The Independent News: "... the government has worsened its prognosis of the disaster. Last Friday, scientists affiliated with the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said the plant had released 15,000 terabecquerels of cancer-causing Celsium, equivalent to about 168 times the 1945 atomic bombing of Hiroshima."

The Radiation Defense Project found 22 hotspots of radiation out of 132 areas tested (including the Tokyo area) that were higher than zones considered contaminated after Chernobyl. In addition, Japan's science ministry said 8 percent of the country's surface area has been contaminated by radiation from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, and that 30,000 square kilometers of the country have been blanketed by radioactive Cesium.

ProPectin™contains pure apple pectin. Pectin is a galacturonic acid polymer found in the cell walls of plants. It was first isolated in the 1820s as a key component to making jams and jellies. As a food supplement, apple pectin is a dietary fiber often taken to maintain good digestive health. In addition to pure apple pectin, ProPectin contains glucose and ascorbic acid. Studies show that apple pectin does not deplete the body of necessary trace elements like iron, copper and zinc.

Pectin has a cell wall comprised of three pectic polysaccharides, including homogalacturonan, rhamnogalacturonan-I, and rhamnogalacturonan-II, or RG-II. Scientists discovered that RG-II binds with heavy metals like Cesium-137 (Cs-137) in a process called chelation, and the residues are subsequently flushed from the body through natural elimination processes.

Clinical studies conducted on thousands of children exposed to radiation after the Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe show that apple pectin is effective in flushing Cs-137 from the body. The pectin used in ProPectin is sourced from a limited quantity of unique apples–apples not found anywhere else in the world at this time. This situation creates a very restricted supply of ProPectin and that is why it is so important for you to act now in obtaining this product for you and your family.

The apple pectin used in ProPectin™ is extracted from the skin and pulp of apples grown in one part of the world. These apples appear to offer a superior ability to extract Cs-137 from the body. These exceptionally high quality apples are certified pesticide-free and contain no chemical additives. Technicians use 250 kilograms of apples to extract one kilogram of pharmaceutical-grade pectin, instantly soluble enough for human consumption. Taken three times a day for the first 30 days, ProPectin provides nine grams of apple pectin to help the body flush Cs-137 from the system.

It would be impossible to eat enough apples in a day to equal the results offered by ProPectin.

To flush Cs-137 from the body, individuals need to consume 8 to 12 grams of apple pectin a day. Unfortunately, most pectin products take too long to dissolve (at least 12 hours for 0.5 grams), come as gel tablets which do not dissolve in the body effectively, and can contain negligible amounts of pectin. ProPectin provides pure, pharmaceutical-grade apple pectin–one of the highest quality, soluble apple pectin products on the market.

ProPectin is endorsed by Dr. Michael Nobel, Cofounder and Chairman of the Nobel Charitable Trust, Asia. He was involved in the development of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Dr. Nobel currently serves as a guest professor at the Solutions Science Research Laboratory at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, University of Japan. He has an honorary doctorate from Soka University in Tokyo, and holds an honorary professorship from the National Academy of Science of Azerbaijan.

Many scientists and nutritionists feel apple pectin has the ability to support many other health issues. According to Susan Sungsoo Cho in her book, Fiber Ingredients, apple pectin may slow the rate at which your body absorbs sugars. Cho says apple pectin works by slowing your digestion of sugars and fats, which leads to lower blood glucose levels and a reduced insulin demand. Cho also believes apple pectin may help protect against colon cancer, since it speeds up excretion, which helps the body to eliminate cancer-causing substances more quickly. (1)

A. Stewart Truswell, human nutrition expert at the University of Sydney, Australia, and author of a commentary published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, says apple pectin works better than oat bran, psyllium or guar gum in lowering cholesterol. Researcher M. Gonzalez, lead author of a study published in the Journal of Physiology and Biochemistry, found that apple pectin works best for blood cholesterol.(2)
