Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant daily spewing radiation across northern hemisphere

(NaturalNews) On March 11, 2011, an earthquake registering 9.0 on the Richter scale occurred 130 km off the coast of Honshu Island, Japan. Located in the region are four nuclear power plants with 11 total reactors (all of which shut down automatically when the quake hit). While three of the reactors in the Daiichi plant automatically began to shutdown when the quake hit, they were under tsunami waves when the shutdown completed, and thus a major disaster sequence occurred at TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi plant.

The first problem arose when pressure inside the containment structures of Fukushima Daiichi reactors 1-3 increased steadily and began venting hydrogen gases into the atmosphere continuously. The next day, March 12th, a hydrogen explosion occurred in the building above unit 1 reactor. Two days later, on March 14th, another explosion occurred in unit 3 reactor, due to hydrogen mixing with oxygen. On March 15th, the pressure suppression chamber under reactor unit 2 ruptured, releasing significant radioactivity.

The Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency of Japan (NISA) initially declared the Fukushima accident level 5 on the INES scale - meaning an accident with wider consequences (for comparison, the Three Mile Island accident of 1979 was also classified as INES level 5). After analyzing radioactivity released 72 hours later, NISA re-classified it at level 7, stating that radioactive releases were equal to one tenth of the Chernobyl, Ukraine disaster.

The Fukushima Daiichi disaster continues

The amount of radioactivity released from Fukushima from other points of comparison yields cause for concern. The release of radioactivity from Fukushima is estimated to be the equivalent of 168 of the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima, Japan during World War II. More troubling still is the fact that the Fukushima plant continues to spew out radiation across the northern hemisphere every single day because the reactors have not stabilized. Continuously, leaks in the reactors are being reported, Fukushima children are being diagnosed with thyroid cancer, fish are being found to be contaminated with radiation, and U.S. water supply samples are testing positive for radioactive components Iodine-131, Cesium-134 and Cesium -137.

What you can do

So how do we protect our health in an irradiated world? At least one of the answers is relatively simple and accessible. The Japanese College of Intravenous Therapy (JCIT) has completed studies on the effects of mega-doses of vitamin C on Fukushima Daaichi workers since the meltdown. In the fall of 2011, JCIT conducted a study and found that Fukushima workers had abnormality gene expression. They found that the powerful anti-oxidizing properties of the vitamin C complex helped to fight against damage to DNA by combating free radicals. Since ionizing radiation damages living tissue by forming free radicals, anti-oxidants work to protect against our bodies against radioactivity. The study data was presented in Japan, Korea, and Taiwan. JCIT has sent letters with their findings to the Japanese government and the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), urging them to inform people how to protect themselves from radiation, but this recommendation has been largely ignored.

A "mega-dose" of vitamin C

Clearly, vitamin C is of vital importance in defending the body against radiation, and should be taken daily in mega-doses to protect DNA. A mega-dose is required because it provides continual anti-oxidant flow throughout the body. Vitamin C also works to combat radioactivity by chelating radioactive heavy metal atoms and eliminating them from the body. The recommended mega-dose is 3,000 mg, taken four times per day for a total daily dose of 12,000 mg.
