Avoid Frying When Flying: Eliminate Ionizing Radiation When You Travel

(NaturalNews) What do airport back-scatter scanners, Wifi on planes and modern day telecommunications have in common? Ionizing radiation. Radiation is nothing but energy. It is both friend and foe and is a natural phenomenon we couldn't live without. Ionizing radiations are types of waves of electric and magnetic (electromagnetic) energy with the ability to attract electrons from other atoms. This is where the problem lies. When ionizing radiation is absorbed by the human body it has the potential to damage our atoms in our DNA encouraging disease and creating toxins known as free radicals in the process.

Concern about ionizing radiation exposure and flying dates back to NASA astronauts and studies of long haul airline crews. It is something that should concern everyone who steps on a plane for a number of reasons. First is technology; the more technologically driven we are as a society the more stressed we have become. Mobile phones, wireless networks, medical diagnostics and flying make up parts of our lifestyle. Exposure to these sources of ionizing and non ionizing forms of radiation is on the increase and often without our consent. Second, even if you abhor technology chances are that if you switch on a mobile phone it will pick up the networks of people living around you (which means you're being exposed); you have no control over your exposure. This same loss of control is now being suggested as the debate on whether Wifi should be encouraged or discouraged on planes increases. The more sinister problem about ionizing radiation on planes, whether from Wifi or outside the plane, is that our natural protection at sea level is absent on planes.

There is no "cure" for radiation exposure. The best you can do is reduce its impact on your health. The current government advice on radiation basics uses a 3 point model: distancing yourself from the source, reducing the time spent in the environment where ionizing radiation is present and shielding yourself from radiation. The downside to this advice is that as a flier you don't have much control over the first two points. The flight time and altitude are determined by the flight crew and factors of the day. The good news is that the third factor is good advice you can act on using informed dietary choices, supportive technology and lifestyle choices.

Fliers should make efforts to add high antioxidant foods to their diet because they mop up the free radicals created by ionizing radiation. If you can't get them from food, supplement. Consider naturally occurring Vitamin C, Active COQ10- Ubiquinol and Glutathione. Supportive technology tools include all types of grounding equipment you can use in and around the house, to lessen the radiation emitted by the gadgets we use daily. Grounding sheets and pads are available for beds and computer work stations respectively. Even simpler to implement is a timer on your wireless router - setting the timer to switch off your router when you are in bed stops you from being bombarded with radiation while you sleep. Lifestyle choices include routinely living a more balanced life. Being out in nature and connecting with nature is the best remedy.

It is a little known fact that the Earth is covered in an inexhaustible number of negative electrons which are restorative and healing. These same negative electrons are partly what's missing at altitude and cause the air on planes to be dry and stuffy. Adjusting your lifestyle to make sure you absorb as much of these electrons really is the master key to eliminating ionizing radiation from your flying schedule.
