(NaturalNews) Though it has already been nearly a year since the tragic earthquake and tsunami ravaged the eastern coast of Japan, toxic radiation from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility is still a serious global health threat. But one powerful way you can continue to protect yourself from radiation poisoning is to make sure you get plenty of calcium and selenium in your diet.

Chris Busby, a British scientist and director of Green Audit, an environmental consultancy agency, recently wrote a short paper explaining how the body absorbs ionizing radiation, and how consuming the right nutrients helps to guard against this absorption. Calcium, he says, is one of the keys to preventing the uptake of damaging radiation, as is selenium and cesium carbonate or chloride.

Since the radioactive substances being emitted from Fukushima are genotoxic, meaning they cause DNA and other genetic damage, it is crucial for your long-term health to thwart their absorption in any way possible. And if your body's cells are lacking in certain radioprotective nutrients, they will be more prone to absorb toxins like radioactive iodine, for instance.

A healthy thyroid gland requires plenty of nutritive iodine in order to function properly. When iodine is lacking, this critical gland is quick to absorb other mimicking substances instead, including toxic fluoride and gamma radiation. This is why supplementing with iodine, and even taking emergency iodine pills during a severe nuclear situation, is highly recommended to protect against radiation poisoning (http://www.naturalnews.com/031708_iodine_rad...).

The same is true for DNA, which remains stable in the presence of calcium and magnesium. Genetic sites throughout the body bind with these important natural elements in order to function properly -- but when they are lacking or deficient in them, these DNA receptors will uptake radionuclide ions that mimic them instead, which in many cases includes harmful nuclear radiation.

Busby suggests taking calcium supplements to help thwart the buildup of radioactive substances in cell DNA. Supplements that combine calcium with magnesium are also beneficial, as these nutrients work in conjunction with one another to ensure that the body gets maximum absorption of both, and maximum radioprotective benefits.

Selenium and various soluble cesium salts (which are different than radioactive cesium) are also recommended, as these important nutrients provide radioprotective benefits in other areas of the body like the muscle and heart.
