Have a Virus in Your Body? Beware of Vegetables with Pesticides; CBCD Reviews Scientific Data

Industry: Health & Fitness

Over 65% of vegetables are covered in pesticides. These pesticides damage the immune system, and help latent viruses multiply. The CBCD reviews scientific studies.

“When the immune system is damaged, latent viruses can reactivate and cause disease. We recommend taking Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin against latent viruses.” – Greg Bennett, CBCD

Pesticide levels on 12 common vegetables found in supermarkets are dangerously high. They include apples, strawberries, grapes, celery, peaches, spinach, sweet bell peppers, nectarines, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, snap peas, and potatoes. (1) This is according to a report made by The Environmental Working Group, a watchdog organization in Washington, D.C. that uses the power of information to protect public health and the environment.

Pesticide exposure seriously damages the immune system, and were “linked to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, autism and endometriosis,” according to recent scientific studies. (1) For example, Dr. Hardell and his team found “an interaction between high concentrations of some POPs (persistent organic pollutants, or pesticides) and titres (that is, concentration) of antibodies to EBV (Epstein Barr Virus) early antigen (EA IgG) in relation to NHL (non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma).” (2) Dr. Hardell and his team are from the MTM Research Centre, School of Science and Technology, Orebro University in Sweden. Their study showed that the tested pesticides damaged the immune system, which creates the right environment for a latent virus to multiply and cause disease.

The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) therefore recommends that individuals take Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin against latent viruses. The formula of these natural antiviral products was tested by Hanan Polansky and Edan Itzkovitz from the CBCD in two clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. The studies showed that the Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin formula is effective against EBV and other viruses. The clinical studies were published in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, the first, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs. Study authors wrote that, “individuals infected with the (EBV and other viruses)…reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with Gene-Eden-VIR.” (3) The study authors also wrote that, “We observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms.” (3) In addition, this natural antiviral was recently proven to reduce mental and physical fatigue in a post-marketing clinical study that followed FDA guidelines.

Both products can be ordered online on the Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin websites.

Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin are natural antiviral dietary supplements. Their formula contains five natural ingredients: Selenium, Camellia Sinesis Extract, Quercetin, Cinnamomum Extract, and Licorice Extract. The first ingredient is a trace element, and the other four are plant extracts. Each ingredient and its dose was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists at polyDNA, the company that invented and patented the formula, scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals, and identified the safest and most effective natural ingredients against latent viruses. To date, Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin are the only natural antiviral products on the market with published clinical studies that support their claims.

The Environmental Group report continues, saying that “The USDA has set limits on allowable pesticide residue it deems safe and requires all produce sold in stores to meet those standards. But this doesn’t prevent lower levels of chemicals from making an appearance in your fruits and vegetables…all nectarine and 99 percent of apple samples tested positive for at least one pesticide residue. Just one single grape contained as many as 15 pesticides, while single samples of celery, cherry tomatoes, imported snap peas and strawberries were found to have 13 different pesticides each. This year’s list also examined pesticide levels on leafy greens, such as kale and collard greens, as well as hot peppers. Some of these produce items were found to have residues of organophosphate and carbamate insecticides, which research has shown are especially toxic.” (1)

“Although some pesticides have been restricted or banned because they pose risks of cancer, birth defects, or neurological damage, little attention has so far been given to what may be their greatest risk: impairment of human and animal immune systems. According to this new report, there is considerable evidence that widely used pesticides may suppress immune responses to bacteria, viruses, parasites, and tumors, making people significantly more vulnerable to disease.” (4)

The CBCD therefore suggests that individuals take Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin to help balance the negative effects of pesticides on the immune system.
