(NaturalNews) With the situation in Fukushima, Japan actually being much worse than reported by the mainstream media, more and more people are concerned about the increasing possibility of a nuclear accident, terror attack or other radiation release event. In light of that, this article will continue to explore many effective natural supplements to protect you from the dangerous and deadly effects of radiation sickness.

It turns out that most of the antioxidant vitamins and minerals that are so effective at keeping you healthy also have powerful anti radiation effects by virtue of their free radical scavenging and lipid peroxidation inhibiting properties.

In a previous article "Radiological protection - Natural supplements prevent radiation sickness" (http://www.naturalnews.com/033411_radiation_sickness_supplements.html) we listed a number of supplements, vitamins and minerals to help prevent and reverse the effects of radiation sickness.

In this article we'll cover some additional supplements along with dietary changes you can make now to increase your overall protection.

Diet and Radiation Protection

Consuming a diet high in fruits and vegetables is not only good for your health; it can help protect you from the damaging effects of radiation of all kinds. This includes radiation from medical exposure and terrorist attacks.

MSG (monosodium glutamate), hydrolyzed proteins, soy proteins and isolates, autolyzed yeast, spices and natural flavoring, are all names for various excitotoxins added to foods today. These additives compromise the function of cells and increase free radical generation, which only adds to the destructive effects of radiation.

Foods that generate large amount of oxidants, such as packaged and processed foods, will also increase your sensitivity to all forms of radiation. For example, omega-6 type
fats (corn, safflower, sunflower, hydrogenated oils etc) are known to increase free
radical generation and lipid peroxidation.

A diet high in red meat will also increase radiation sensitivity. That's because iron is a major trigger for free radical generation. If you insist on consuming a diet high in iron, it's a good idea to eat vegetables with your meal as they reduce iron absorption.

A good way to take advantage of the radioprotective components found in vegetables is to blend them in a good high speed blender. Doing so releases their radioprotective nutrients, flavonoids, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes and allows for greater absorption into the body.

Secondary Supplements for sub-lethal doses (below 200 rems)

Beta Carotene
(Mixed carotenoids 25,000 to 50,000 IU per day) - Protects important blood cells, especially those in the spleen. There is no known toxicity.

Vitamin C: (3000-6000mg per day)- Known as the King of the antioxidants, it is one of the most effective supplements against radiological effects. 3000-6000mg per day as maintenance dose and double in case of radiation exposure.

Vitamin E (Mixed Tocopherols) 1000 IU per day - Try and find a brand that does not add any vegetable oils which can increase free radical and lipid peroxidation damage. The Gamma form of vitamin E is the only one that reduces inflammation which can help prevent long term cancers due to radiation exposure.

Zinc (25-50mg per day) - Zinc (together with Selenium) produces superoxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase, one of the most powerful antioxidant enzymes in the body.

Melatonin (20mg Per Day) - If your exposure is high, take Melatonin 20 mg once a day. (It will make you sleepy). Do not take this now or long term. It should not be taken for more than two weeks. At that point cut back to 2 mg three times a day. Should not be used by those younger than 12 years old or if you have neurological or pulmonary disorders.
