(NaturalNews) Radioactive waters from the Fukushima disaster now buffet the coasts of North America. We have known since 1987 - when in the 8 months following Chernobyl, a 245% to 900% increase in infant mortality was observed in the northern coastal areas of the US - that out-of-control radiation leaks are a proven worldwide problem.
What we also know is immediate crises, such as the radioactivity from Fukushima, only add to the literal sea of continual radiation exposure.
We are exposed to "routine" nuclear medical equipment leaks, checkpoints with full-body scans, nuclear submarine crashes, depleted uranium ammunition fallout, mammograms, CT scans, X-rays, radioactive-contaminated tobacco smoke, microwave ovens, food irradiation accidents, and more.
To share a few examples:
Nuclear mishaps and accidents - Over a 15-year study, ending in 1985, there were 151 significant nuclear accidents in 14 western countries with a total of over 2,7000 mishaps at nuclear plants.
X-rays - Dr. Alice Stewart, a recognized world authority on nuclear epidemiology, discovered that women exposed to diagnostic X-rays during pregnancy had offspring with two times the likelihood of developing leukemia as did children who had not been exposed in utero.
Cigarette smoke - Cigarette smoke contains and gives off the radioactive particles radium 226, which is found in phosphate fertilizers used in commercial tobacco farming; polonium 210 and lead 210, which are breakdown products from radium 226; and potassium 40.
Our big picture is not just surviving the immediate Fukushima crisis, but protecting ourselves and our families from the cumulative daily radiation dangers that build up over a long period of time.
My radiation protection approach is built on six principles:
I. Selective uptake
If one has enough minerals in the system, the cells become saturated with healthy minerals. Once cellular mineral saturation occurs, there is less opportunity for radioactive minerals to be absorbed into the system.
Certain foods actively draw the radioactive materials to them and pull them out of the body via the bowel and kidney excretion process. The kelp family of sea vegetables are highest in the natural chelator, sodium alginate. Work by J.F. Sara at the Environmental Toxicology Laboratory of the EPA, and A. Huag, as reported in The Composition and Properties of Alginates, show that alginates bind other metal pollutants, such as excess barium, lead, plutonium, cesium and cadmium. Use kelp (5-10 tablets) for chelating I-131, anduse dulse for chelating plutonium. Obviously, make sure your sea vegetables come from as safe an ocean source as possible.
III. Increase your antioxidant intake
Keeping the body high in antioxidant nutrients and enzymes will nullify the free radicals created by the radiation exposure.
IV. Specific foods and herbs
Increase spirulina and chlorella
Increase all leafy greens and cruciferous vegetables
Take bee pollen (2 Tbsp, 2 times daily)
Increase garlic and onion
Use Siberian Ginseng, Panax Ginseng, Chaparral, and Rosemary
V. Eat an organic, plant-sourced only diet for alkalization, and cover your garden
Research in the International Journal of Radiation Oncology in 1980, showed that if the pH of the cellular fluid was slightly more alkaline then it would protect the cells against radiation. An alkalizing diet, which is also a live-food, plant-source diet, is going to serve us best in these times.
Research adopted from the radiological assessment of the Wyhl Nuclear Power Plant by the Department of Environmental Protection, at the University of Heidelberg Germany in 1978, showed that, as a result of air exposure to radiation, cows milk was 15 times more concentrated with radioactive materials, and beef was 30 times more concentrated than leafy green vegetables. Eating lower on the food chain is a logical and scientific approach to dealing with radiation.
Covering your garden with plastic will help catch dust, rain, ocean fog, and other items that may carry radioactivity.
VI. Take political action
Take political action to eliminate all potential sources of radiation exposure such as use of nuclear power plants, DU weaponry, and all nuclear weapons, as well as minimize use of cell phones and cell phone towers, for minimized EMF exposure to the environment. It is significant inspiration that Germany leads with an explicit plan to shut down and phase out all nuclear power plants by 2020.
May we all be protected from future accidents by paying attention to the warnings of God, and give them full attention. May we proceed with great care in radiation diagnostic testing, which is currently overused. May we realize that we are in a time of changes that require action on the physical plane and action on the spiritual plane to improve the quality and meaning of our lives so that we may move from the Culture of Death into the Culture of Life and Liberation in every aspect of our lives. Blessings to your health.
