Estonian National Institute for Health Development (TAI) nutritional consultant Kristin Salupuu gave a crushing assesment to CellFood, a dietary supplement found in Estonia's national registry of dietary supplements, highlighting the fact that deuterium compounds are toxic to the human body.

Estonian daily Eesti Päevaleht (link in Estonian) reported that the Estonian Veterinary and Food Board (VTA) is currently investigating how much deuterium sulfate is contained in Immune Boost and if and how much is contained in CellFood, two supplements found on the VTA's registry of dietary supplements.

The VTA had previously announced that trace amounts of sulfuric acid was permissible in food, however deuterium sulfate is a sulfuric compound, and deuterium, also known as heavy hydrogen, is toxic to the human body.

"Sulfuric acid is generally used in batteries and powerful cleaning agents," noted Salupuu.

The TAI maintains that all kinds of dietary supplements should be considered with great caution and taken only when instructed to do so by the family doctor.
