In 2007, black fungi were discovered growing inside the cooling towers and around the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, a still contaminated environment unsuitable for humans. Our team surmised that there may be a method to protect against radiation by harnessing the radiophilic (having an affinity for, or loving radiation) properties of this fungi and their unusual tolerance for ionizing radiation.

Goodwin & Wells is developing a portfolio of products formulated for oral use designed to reduce the side effects of radiation associated with the gastrointestinal tract – including nausea, internal burning, and loss of appetite –  as well as other symptoms associated with GI radiation syndrome.
