Read more...

EDITOR'S COMMENT: Although I highly question animal testing, I am against GMO applications and torture of animals in experiments like this, posting represents a real challenge, one we are all facing regardless, with increased radiation from the Sun in both 2012 and 2013. Best case scenario is adopting a healthier diet reducing saturated fats from most animal products, trans fats from frying, etc. Anything "sticky" like this in our human systems can exacerbate radioactive isotopes' ability to "latch on" then later mutate into debilitating conditons.
