Prussian Blue

This might sound too good to be true, but there is a cheap and non toxic chemical which can remove radioactive cesium from both farmyard animals and humans. It is called prussian blue. It can help farmers by lowering the radioactive cesium levels in their animals so they can then sell them at market.

If anyone knows a livestock farmer whose land is contaminated with radioactive cesium, then please tell them about this blog.

I have written about this substance before.

I have made a short film about prussian blue which I will place on youtube soon.

Please note that while prussian blue does contain cyanide groups the cyanide is so tightly bonded to the iron that it is possible for humans to eat 30 grams a day of prussian blue without fear of getting cyanide poisoning. Please note that the paint (pigment) grade of prussian blue is often not effective, also prussian blue should only be used when under the supervision of a medical doctor, vet or other professional.
