Germanium Is Legal To Import And Sell
I, Karl Loren, probably know more about the supposed "restrictions" on the import of germanium than any other person willing to tell the story.
I wrote a Book on germanium and predicted that the FDA would try to make it illegal to import germanium into the US.
Shortly after my Book was published the FDA issued the "import alert" shown below.
In fact that "alert" did not make it illegal to import germanium, but simply allowed FDA officials to seize import shipments of germanium. This alert did not require anyone to seize shipments and did not make it illegal for a person to import germanium.
If some FDA official did seize some imported germanium, it would then be up to the importer to show that the importation was not of the type described in the "alert." The "alert," of course, describes "germanium" as being "poisonous" which is not true -- could be proven easily by feeding the true germanium to mice, the usual test for toxicity.
There is a very simple and standard test for toxicity of various substances -- it called the "LD50" test -- the "dose" that will kill 50% of a batch of test animals:
The amount of germanium dioxide (not the form we sell) that is toxic has been established:
The above reference indicates that "germanium oxide" is lethal to a group of mice, to 50% of them, when fed to them at a rate of 5 grams per 1000 grams (one kg) of body weight. On this same basis, a human who might weight 100 kilograms (220 pounds) would have to ingest 500 grams of germanium oxide for it to be toxic -- this would be about one full pound at one dose. This very unlikely possibility applies to the "oxide" form of germanium. Dr. Asai created a very different form, called "organic germanium" and there has never been any showing of any LD50 rate for this form. It is not toxic in any dosage.
In 1995 Congress passed a new law restricting the FDA from the unproven types of allegations they were making.
Thus, in 1995 the earlier "alert" was canceled.
So, as of 1995 there has been no "import alert" affecting germanium.
There are, of course, several companies claiming to be selling germanium. One even claims to be selling germanium which is manufactured within the United States. I have claimed, in writing, that none of these sources has the authentic germanium which was the subject of patents in Japan. None of those companies is willing to disclose the source, or country, of their supply of germanium.
I suspect that fake germanium is made in China and imported, but those who import this fake stuff are unwilling to put the "made in China" name on their product.
In any event, there is only one genuine source of germanium in the US -- that sold by Vibrant Life.
And, it is completely legal to import and sell. Likewise, it is safe to take in any dosage.
