WASHINGTON, DC - November 19, 2002 - The Armed Forces is determine the radio protective benefits of Beta 1,3 glucans.
Radiation exposure destroys the bone marrow and depletes the white blood cells that defend against infection and disease. In preclinical research, AFRRI has demonstrated that systemic yeast beta 1,3 glucans enhanced mouse resistance to sub-lethal and lethal doses of radiation. Beta glucan stimulated bone marrow recovery of white blood cells and increased their infection-fighting activity.
AFRRI will conduct a series of studies to determine the safety and efficacy of orally administered Beta Glucan to protect animals against radiation and infectious disease. If this preclinical research is successful, a plan to develop Beta Glucan formulations that can be used in state and federal programs designed to protect U.S. government employees, military personnel and citizens from national disasters.
The Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine, Inc. is another institute involved in this process, the foundation is a private, not-for-profit organization chartered by Congress to support military medical research and education at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences and throughout military medicine.

The Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, is a triservice research laboratory chartered in 1961 whose focus is developing potential products in the field of radiobiology and related matters essential to the operational and medical support of the U.S. Department of Defense and the military services. AFRRI's mission is to develop products that may protect military personnel against radiation-induced immunosuppression and infectious disease. Website: www.afrri.usuhs.mil/.
Notice the type of attention is gathering. This is not your "run-of-the-mill" dietary supplement. It is a scientifically formulated and research material that is gathering worldwide attention because of the results it has been producing in reputable labs worldwide. It has been proven safe and effective in independent testing. As one researchers put it "it's as safe as eating a piece of bread"
