Yes, you read that right! Cell phone radiation is very real and so are its effects on your body. As useful as a cell phone can be, they pose quite a threat by exposing the body to radio-frequency electromagnetic fields which in turn can reduce the nutritional value of food and increase toxicity. While the most effective solution is avoidance, you can also combat the side effects of cell phone radiation by knowing what’s right to eat.
Last year’s superfood is still a star this year and should always remain so. It is packing in Vitamin C which is a great source of antioxidants, crucial in protecting the watery layer of your cells. Kale is also rich in caffeic acid, a component that can effectively work against radiation and protect the lymphocytes.
2. Cod Liver Oil
Researchers have documented that vitamin D3 protects the nervous system besides promoting calcium absorption. Cod liver oil has lots of D3 while carrying a healthy ratio of omega-3 fatty acids to omega-6 fatty acids. The former helps repair fatty cell membranes while the latter promotes inflammation in the body which is a big no-no.
This golden-yellow spice is packed with curcumin which a great antioxidant and anti-cancer property. Primarily, turmeric behaves as a DNA mechanic, repairing them so your body functions better. It also promotes the binding of iron to your blood cells. The golden rule when ingesting turmeric with your food is to add a dash of black pepper for increased absorption and effectiveness!
A small handful of these a day can go a long way for your body. Almonds are packing in vitamin E which protects nerve membranes and slows down the oxidizing of cells’ fat membranes. Almonds are also rich in antioxidants and they’re great for balancing out an acidic body environment as they are one of the few alkaline nuts out there.
Cell phone radiation is known to reduce the amounts of glutathione in your body but fret not! These stinky sticks are packing in glutathione AND selenium, both which are antioxidants capable of repairing DNA, dispelling useless molecules and removing heavy metal from the body.
For a combo pack of minerals, kelp (the green kind) is the go-to food. They are also an excellent source of magnesium, a mineral that needs to be balanced out with calcium at a ratio of 1:2 for better calcium absorption. Eat sparingly as you don’t want to overload your body with too many minerals.
We’ve heard so much about using garlic to deter vampires but that’s not all they can do! Garlic is laden with sulfur and this component promotes detoxification in the body as well as a conversion of vitamins and proteins. Garlic can also cut off mercury from seafood and fish when cooked together. Cook it in some olive oil to enhance absorption.
8. Grass-Fed Beef
If you’re a red meat lover, grass-fed cows should be your best friend. Protein is necessary for undoing brain damages from cell phone radiation but to prevent too much of iron being absorbed into your body, eat your meat with a good serving of vegetables. Alternatively, opt for free-range poultry.
While artichokes are rich in vitamin C and magnesium, it’s made it to the list for carrying silymarin. This substance is known for increasing the levels of glutathione in your body and the more glutathione you have, the less toxic your body will be.
10. Whole grains
Unrefined and unfortified whole grains are a healthier source of carbs, but they are also high in vitamin B-complex which is crucial in nerve repair. Brown rice and millet are all great sources of vitamin B and folic acid.
