(NaturalNews) Damaging radiation comes from many everyday sources besides just damaged nuclear power reactors. Mobile phones and their signal towers, wireless cards and their network routers, airplanes, microwaves, and many other devices all emit radiation, and prolonged exposure to them can lead to serious health problems including cancer. But there are some simple steps you can take to help minimize exposure to radiation of all forms.

As we have written about previously on NaturalNews, one of the best ways to help mitigate exposure to radiation is to load up on superfoods like chlorella and spirulina, both of which have demonstrated radioprotective benefits. You can learn more about these amazing sea-based superfoods by visiting:

Iodine, another sea-based nutrient, offers radioprotection as well, and it is important for the glandular system. The thyroid gland in particular, which requires iodine in order to produce healthy levels of thyroid hormones, will quickly deteriorate in the presence of radiation if it does not have enough iodine. In the US especially, where iodine deficiency is prevalent, it is crucial to supplement daily with high-quality iodine in order to maintain proper glandular function (http://www.naturalnews.com/031708_iodine_rad...).

"Any iodine in your diet will be protective against the destructive radioactive iodine that is one of the by-products of uncontrolled nuclear fission reactions," says Dr. David Blyweiss, an expert in nutrition and functional medicine."

While there is little that can be done to avoid potential exposure to the radiation continuously being emitted by Fukushima, there are ways you can help reduce your exposure to the continuous stream of radiation emitted from your cell phone:

- When not in use, keep your cell phone away from your body as much as possible. Mobile phones constantly communicate with radio towers even when not in use, which means they are constantly emitting damaging electromagnetic radiation.

- When charging your cell phone at night, keep it at least five feet away from your body. Remember, those radioactive signals will be transmitting all night long, so the farther your phone is away from your body, the better.

- When using your cell phone, always wear a headset device that maintains a distance between the transmission antenna and your head. Holding a cell phone right against your ear sends a steady stream of radiation directly in the brain, and even the World Health Organization (WHO) now admits that cell phones are a potential carcinogen (http://www.naturalnews.com/032609_cell_phone...).
