Precautionary and restorative measures to take in the event of radioactive contamination

(NaturalNews) At time of this writing, radioactive clouds from the Japanese nuclear disaster were expected to hit the western United States within days. Though part of the radiation is expected to dissipate over the ocean, some estimates are forecasting radiation exposure levels of 750 RADS or more. By comparison, one chest X-ray is about 1/300 RADS and one CT-scan is 1 RAD. Following are several precautionary and restorative measures to take in the event of radioactive contamination.

First and foremost is potassium iodide (KI). Potassium iodide binds to radioactive iodine and is cleared within 24-72 hours. It is by far the item most used for radiation poisoning. According to the USFDA guidelines, the following doses should be taken after likely internal contamination.

*Adults, including breastfeeding women: 130 mg
*Children between 3 and 18 years of age and less than 150 pounds: 65 mg
*Children 150 pounds or more: 130 mg (regardless of age)
*Infants and children between 1 month and 3 years old: 32 mg (whether nursing or not)
*Nursing and non-nursing newborns from birth to 1 month old: 16 mg.

Instead of waiting for nuclear fallout to arrive, it is a good idea to begin taking lesser preventive doses of potassium iodide in order to have enough of it circulating in the body to prevent radioactive iodine from binding internally. Estimates of how much preventive iodine to take generally vary from 6 to 50 mg of daily iodine. Note that the average Japanese consumes 13 mg of iodine daily, which is 100 times more than the average US resident.

When fallout does occur, precautionary measures can help minimize exposure and ingestion of radioactive materials, including staying inside, keeping doors and windows closed and turning off air conditioners. If possible, cover garden vegetables and fruits ahead of time. If one must go outside, wear a face mask, change and wash clothes upon returning indoors and take showers. Once the fallout has passed, wear a mask and spray the entire property, including exposed vehicles, with a hose. Shower immediately after returning inside.

Other suggested items for dealing with radioactive fallout:

Use bentonite clay. Bentonite clay can be used for heavy metal detox as well as to remove radiation. Internal clays have been used for detoxification for hundreds of years. As with all clays, the more you use, the quicker you tend to detox and the longer the treatment is the better.

Studies indicate echinacea is excellent at preventing and restoring radiation damage.

Eat sea vegetables. Studies dating to 1968 found that sea vegetables contained a polysaccharide substance, called sodium alginate, which selectively bound radioactive strontium and eliminated it from the body. Seaweeds are also rich in antioxidants that protect us from degenerative diseases such as cancer, as well as slow down the aging process.

Eat an anti-radiation diet containing items such as:

*Miso soup
*Brassica vegetables and high beta carotene vegetables
*Beans and lentils
*Potassium, calcium and mineral rich foods
*High nucleotide content foods to assist in cellular repair including spirulina, chlorella, algae, yeast, sardines, liver, anchovies and mackerel
*Cod liver oil and olive oil
*Avoid sugars, sweets and wheat
*A good whole-food derived multivitamin/multimineral supplement

Consume chlorophyll rich wheatgrass. Tests have indicated that a wheatgrass rich diet improves survival after exposure to radiation and that chlorophyll increases resistance to radiation.

Oral sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) can diminish the severity of the changes produced by uranium in the kidneys.

Take N-Acetyl cysteine or use coffee enemas to increase glutathione levels, which are decimated by exposure to radiation.

Research indicates marine phytoplankton can protect against some of the noxious side effects of radiation.
