频繁乘机飞行易受辐射氧化应激

2011 12 15
 

我们目前生活的环境正属最有毒的时期,史无前例。这是铁一般事实。我们的大环境严重受到毒素的污染:有毒的空气、水、饮食中的农药、加工食品里的致癌物质、重金属和不忘乎来自医疗测试仪器(如CT扫描、乳腺)、手机的种种辐射。在美国科研人员提交总统的年度报告(2008-2009)中提到,这些污染的情况都被忽略和低估了。同一个报告也指出,环境因素与基因、免疫系统、内分泌系统的失调有密切关系,而相关的研究资料日益剧增。另一项研究报道(Anand, et al.; 2008, p.2098) :95% 的癌症例子的主导因子在于环境和生活方式。

频繁地乘搭飞机和长期接触电磁辐射都将提高身体里的氧化应激(oxidative stress),而氧化应激与癌症及各种退化性疾病相关。无论居家或工作场所,我们因为应用有线和无线的科技产品(如手机、无线局域网)的几率增多而提高了与电磁辐射的接触。根据 Health Canada 的报道,频繁飞行的人士(如商务出差、机组人员)每年所接触的辐射量相等于或甚至超过陆基行业的放射工作人员。即使是低辐射量的接触也能激发连串后遗症,乃至多年后产生癌症。

除了运用各种设施来减少辐射接触以外,另一好方法是食用有防护辐射反应的草药。根据Jagetia (2007) 的研究,能防护辐射反应的草药有:崩大碗(别名‘铜钱草’ pegaga),高良姜(又‘南姜’ galangal),神圣罗勒(又‘九层塔’ holy basil)和余甘子(学名phyllanthus emblica,如Phytolec™里含余甘子提取物)。Phytocel™ 配方茶里含崩大碗及神圣罗勒。

实验显示,Phyllanthus emblica在人体和实验动物里由辐射造成的染色体损害有防护作用。(Singh, Sharma, Jindal, Soyal, & Goyal, 2006, p.129). 这草药其中的一个防护作用是预防谷胱甘肽glutathione GSH的消耗,谷胱甘肽是人体

自然产生的抗氧化剂中最重要的一个。谷胱甘肽的消耗也通常跟患癌几率增加、肌肤疾病、自体免疫性疾病、过敏症等问题有关联。

祝您喜悦、安祥。
