Nanoparticles Added to Food, Drugs, and Vaccines Proven to Damage Health
Nanoparticles, routinely and increasingly used in prepared foods and pharmaceutical drugs, have been found to damage the ability of chicken intestines to absorb nutrients, possibly including necessary vitamins, and to cause immune system activity.
Nanoparticles had been presumed harmless, and their manufacture has ramped up to massive levels. They’re used everywhere. They’re in prepared foods and pharmaceutical drugs. A new study has demonstrated that these particles cause changes in the intestinal wall, interfere with iron absorption and likely other nutrients, and cause changes in the spleen and liver of chickens.
The journal Nature published the study and found its results to be worthy of concern. They’ve issued a statement saying:
The authors suggest that the polystyrene particles used in these experiments are generally considered to be non-toxic, but their interaction with a normal physiological process suggests a potential mechanism for a chronic, harmful, more subtle response.
Titled “Oral exposure to polystyrene nanoparticles affects iron absorption”, the study examined chickens fed a diet that included polystyrene nanoparticles, and also examined in vitro (in lab) samples of human intestinal epithelial lining. They found that a diet that includes polystyrene nanoparticles caused intestinal changes that affect the absorption of iron. The villi, microsopic projections in the intestinal wall through which nutrients are absorbed, were changed, resulting in an increased surface area in the gut.
The researchers showed changes in iron absorption and they anticipate that changes will also be found in absorption of calcium, copper, zinc and vitamins A, D, E and K—all necessary for life.
Iron absorption in chickens with short term exposure to nanoparticles was lower than in chickens either unexposed or chronically exposed. This likely explains why the intestinal villi of chronically exposed chickens had changed to create a larger surface area: to adjust for the loss of ability to absorb vital nutrients by growing more intestinal lining to absorb them.
Editorial Aside: This should serve as an object lesson to allopathic doctors. They define changes in the body—symptoms—as diseases. As this study demonstrates, symptoms are not diseases. They are the body’s adjustment to disease. However, we can be sure that, if a pathologist were to examine intestines and find an overgrowth of villi, as shown in this study:
- They would immediately be defined as pathological.
- The pharmaceutical corporations would be running around doing studies to find a drug to treat this new disease by reducing the “overgrowth” of villi.
- A name would, of course, be devised for this new “disease”, something like megavilli.
- Big Pharma would initiate a campaign of “public awareness” of megavilli.
- Finally, some drug would be sold at an exhorbitant price to a gullible public to treat megavilli.
Naturally, of course, the treatment itself would make the underlying problem worse by interfering with the absorption of nutrients. Ultimately, patients would die from lack of nutrition. Of course, doctors would declare that the disease of megavilli is the cause of death.
We should, at least, count our blessings that no pathologist noticed, so we aren’t now suffering under a false epidemic of megavilli.
But, Didn’t They Give Excess Doses of Nanoparticles?
The researchers made a point of feeding the chickens with a dose of nanoparticles equivalent to what most people in developed nations are exposed to every day. Therefore, the harm demonstrated in this study is a harm that is likely happening to everyone who routinely eats the prepared pseudo foods sold in supermarkets and ingests the drugs sold by drugstores and prescribed by doctors.
Be careful what you eat!
