Environmental Elements and What They Mean to Your Pets

September 22, 2021

Radioactive and environmental elements are substances that emit ionizing radiation, which can be harmful to living organisms. These elements can include radon, uranium, other radioactive isotopes, heavy metals, and other toxic substances that can be found in the environment. While these elements can occur naturally, human activities such as mining and using pesticides and fertilizers can also release them into the environment, increasing the risk of pet exposure. In this article, we will discuss the potential health impacts of these substances on pets and provide tips for pet owners on protecting their animals from exposure.

What silent, tasteless, and often odorless substance could negatively affect you and your pet's body without you knowing it? Radioactive and environmental elements.

What are radioactive and environmental elements?

Radioactive and environmental elements refer to substances emitting ionizing radiation, which can harm living organisms. These elements can include radon, uranium, other radioactive isotopes, heavy metals, and other toxic substances that can be found in the environment. [1] [2]

When pets are exposed to these elements through inhalation, ingestion, or skin contact, they can experience negative health effects, including an increased risk of cancer and other diseases. Therefore, pet owners need to be aware of the potential risks and take steps to protect their animals from exposure to these substances. [3]

 

How are pets exposed to these elements?

Human activities, such as mining and nuclear energy production, can release radioactive elements into the environment, increasing the risk of exposure for pets. These substances can be found in soil, water, and air and can be ingested or inhaled by pets through contact with contaminated surfaces or consuming contaminated food or water. In addition, the use of pesticides and fertilizers can also release environmental toxins into the environment. [4]

These products can contain heavy metals, chemicals, and other toxic substances that can harm pets when ingested or inhaled. Therefore, pet owners need to be aware of potential sources of exposure in their local environment and take steps to protect their animals, such as choosing natural, organic alternatives and following label instructions carefully when applying pesticides and fertilizers. Taking these precautions can help reduce the risk of negative health effects on your pets.

The negative effects of radioactive and environmental elements on pet health

Ionizing radiation damages mitochondrial function and breaks your pet's DNA. It's linked to cancer, candida (yeast) infections, fatigue, and gut issues. Fortunately, some actions can help protect against it. You can support your pet's mitochondria and help protect their DNA from mutating by providing carbon-based binders, iodine, zinc, and plant-based minerals. [5]

These substances can help remove radiation, stabilize DNA, and boost the ability to repair tissues. In addition, herbs that enhance kidney and liver health can help guard the detox organs against radiation damage.

 

 

Steps pet owners can take to protect their animals.

  • Provide your pet with safe water to avoid ingestion of radioactive elements
  • Check and fix your home if it's a source of radon exposure.
  • Check with your local municipal water treatment facility and consider using bottled water or home filtration systems if you have concerns about the safety of your tap water.
  • Choose organic, locally sourced, and produced products using sustainable farming practices to reduce the risk of exposure to radioactive elements through food.
  • Be aware of potential sources of radioactive elements in your local environment, such as areas with naturally high radon levels or other radioactive elements.

Providing your pet with safe water is important to avoid ingesting radioactive elements. You can also check and fix your home if it's a source of radon exposure. Some municipal water treatment plants may not be equipped to remove all radioactive elements, so it is a good idea to check with your local facility and consider using bottled water or home filtration systems if you have concerns about the safety of your tap water.

It is also important to be aware of potential sources of radioactive elements in your pet's food. Plants can absorb water and be exposed to the same environment as you, and trace amounts of radioactive elements may also reside in seafood, meat, eggs, milk, and plant-based foods. In addition, using certain pesticides and fertilizers may increase the number of radioactive elements plants absorb from the soil. For example, one study demonstrated that applying glyphosate (commonly known as Roundup) to plants at the end of the growing season skyrocketed uranium levels from 2.5 to 17 times.

Phosphate-based fertilizers may also contain significant amounts of radioactive elements, such as uranium, thorium, and radium. As phosphorus is made into fertilizer, these elements can be concentrated, and if plants absorb the fertilizer, these elements can enter the food chain. Therefore, choosing organic, locally sourced, and produced products using sustainable farming practices is important to reduce the risk of exposure to these elements through food. Taking these precautions can help protect your pet from the negative health effects of radioactive elements in its diet.

Some areas have naturally higher levels of radioactive elements due to deposits in the soil and rocks. For example, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has analyzed every U.S. county and determined the level of radon, a specific radioactive element, for each area. States such as Colorado, Iowa, Montana, North Dakota, and Wyoming currently have the highest radon levels.

Conclusion

Taking simple, effective steps can protect your pet from the negative effects of radioactive and environmental elements. Some options to consider include providing safe water and food, supporting your pet's detox organs with herbs and other natural remedies, and being aware of potential sources of contamination in your home and local environment. It is also a good idea to stay informed about the levels of radioactive elements in your area and take appropriate precautions to reduce your pet's risk of exposure.

Effective, simple steps are usually the best ones. And there are many you can take to protect yourself and your furry loved ones from radioactive elements.
