Is a threat of radiation contamination to foods and supplies prompting us to reconsider our lifestyle, diet and choice of supplementation support?
When discussing ‘dangerous radiation levels’, most people refer to the ionizing radiation at levels reaching far above average ‘background radiation levels’ experienced every day. Non-ionizing radiation such as visible light, radar, microwaves and radio waves are virtually harmless. However, Dr. Theresa Dale, founder of the Wellness Center for Research and Education, notes that ionizing radiation has the power to break molecular bonds in living tissue, causing damage and in extreme cases, death.
Ionizing radiation is excessive energy, mass produced by unstable atoms. It comes in two forms: waves such as X-rays and gamma rays, and particles such as alpha and beta particles. Whenever these pass through living tissue, or are ingested, they have the potential of removing electrons from atoms, turning them into positively charged particles, or ions, which may possibly damage body’s cells.
News sources tell of major widespread nuclear radiation exposure occurring due to the accident in 2011. The latest reports indicate that both Japan’s Fukushima and California’s San Onofre Plants are having issues. Unless the Japanese government entombs the entire Fukushima Plant as done 25 years ago at Chernobyl , it will continue spewing into the environment, land, sea and air.
Radiation contamination to food supplies should motivate continued testing not only in in Japan, but in countries around the globe, including here in the U.S. It appears that the Japanese people were misled as to the safety of their nuclear plants as well as ill advised. They were told it was safe 20 miles or even 50 miles from the plant. Actually, research demonstrates that 200 miles may be even too close if there is a meltdown or even a partial meltdown. Nuclear expert, Dr. John Price, a former member of the Safety Policy Unit at the UK’s National Nuclear Corporation, has warned it could take a 100 years before fuel rods at Japan’s stricken Fukushima nuclear plant are safe. The dilemma under deliberation
is the risk involved when every organism in the food chain is jeopardized.
The Japanese lifestyle has been drastically affected due to the fact that their staple diet, which is grown in their country, including fish, rice and seaweed, is now contaminated. Oddly enough, a diet on non-contaminated seaweed and algae would be the recommended anti-radiation diet of choice. Certain nutrients in foods play a major role against the damaging effects of radiation. One of these being Glutathione (GSH), as it has important detoxification abilities and plays a key role in neutralizing “hydroxyradicals”.
Extensive studies published in PubMed tell of Cancer specialists that are now raising Glutathione (GSH) levels in patients who are undergoing radiation therapy as part of their cancer treatment. The World Health Organization reported that radiation exposure cause 3% to 14% of all lung cancers alone, and other evidence indicate that radiation exposure in general cause approximately 3% of all cancers. When exposed to radiation, a very reactive type of free radical is formed called a “hydroxyradical” and by boosting Glutathione (GSH) levels prior to treatment, Cancer patients can better
tolerate their therapy because it will help with detoxification. Since studies have been done around the world, from
Switzerland to Spain and India to Germany, of the Glutathione (GSH) effect on radiation damage, the implication here is that Glutathione (GSH) does and will, to a greater degree, play a major role in the treatment of cancer by using detoxification to reduce the damaging effects of radiation.
After a direct experience with radiation exposure from the Chernobyl disaster while studying abroad, Dr. Theresa Dale of Wellness Center for Research and Education, created a special product called HGP to repair the pathway that produces Glutathione in the body. The best way to naturally recover from radiation is to actually fix the pathway in the body that detoxifies it – The Hepatic Glutathione Pathway. This is accomplished through balancing and adding missing nutrients
such as methycobalamine, folinic acid, N.A.C., SAMe, TMG (Trimethylglycine) for example. Repairing the pathway is much more effective than wasting money using expensive Glutathione supplementation. The key to repairing the pathway is so the body is able to detoxify, correct and protect itself from free radicals.
Dr. Dale combined a radiation protection protocol along with HGP – using a Homeopathic RadiationX formula and a biologically available Iodine supplement. The dosage depends on exposure length and proximity to the nuclear plant. Seaweed varieties are also excellent sources of iodine when found sourced from the U.S. For added protection, Dr. Dale’s Anti-Radiation protocol involves Vitamin D3, an Optimal Multi Pro vitamin and Nano Ionic Minerals with Silica, along with Ocean Med’s that have high amounts of Fucoidan, a seaweed extract used for cancer and other health issues, besides the benefit of using Homeopathic RadiationX formula, and BioIodine.
In Chernobyl, for instance, spirulina was used to help save many children from radiation poisoning. By taking 5 grams of spirulina a day for 45 days, the Institute of Radiation Medicine in Minsk even proved that children on this protocol experienced enhanced immune systems, T-cell counts and reduced radioactivity. Israeli scientists have since treated Chernobyl children with doses of natural beta carotene from Dunaliella algae and proved that it helped normalize their blood chemistry. Chlorella algae, a known immune system builder and heavy metal detoxifier, have also shown radio protective effects. Note that because they bind heavy metals, algae should therefore be consumed after exposure to any type of radioactive contamination.
There exists beyond a doubt, a plethora of diets and the Nuclear Anti-Radiation Diet should demand fullest attention. In short, after radioactive exposure, eating seaweeds and algae’s are recommended. Whether someone is worried about depleted uranium, plutonium or other isotopes, this would be the wisest thing to do and certainly won’t hurt. Washing all foods carefully helps some but do not eat foods that have been contaminated with fallout. If the food supply has been exposed to radiation, buy frozen veggies but find out where and when they are grown and packaged. Basically, an anti-radiation diet should focus on the following organic foods:
– Miso soup (not made in Japan); Dulse or any other type of sea veggie (from the U.S., preferably Maine); high beta carotene vegetables; beans and lentils; potassium calcium and mineral rich foods; high nucleotide content foods to assist in cellular repair including spirulina, chlorella, algae, sardines, anchovies and mackerel; olive oil for drizzling on foods, not for cooking; avoiding sugars, sweets and wheat.
Dr. Dale believes that the Fukushima disaster may be far more serious and complicated than Chernobyl. Projected paths of the radioactive atmospheric plume emanating from the Fukushima reactors, best described as airborne particles or aerosols for 131I, 137Cs, and 35S, and subsequent atmospheric monitoring showed it coming in contact with the North American continent at California, with greatest exposure in central and southern California.
Government monitoring sites in Anaheim (southern California) recorded peak airborne concentrations of 131I at 1.9 pCi m−3. Anaheim is where Disneyland, the Magic Kingdom, is located. Radioactive debris is beginning to wash up on the Pacific Coast with radiation levels 500% higher than normally found in coastal seaweed. Due to the fact the Japanese are burning radioactive materials instead of disposing of them, radioactive rain-outs will continue for some time, even on the Pacific Coast. At a time when public awareness should be at an all-time high, the government appears to be doing everything it can to cover up what is really occurring. Furthermore, instead of raising the bar to protect their citizens from Fukushima, Japan, the U.S. and the E.U. just publicly raised the radiation levels they deem as “safe” – pretending that these levels of radiation is now good for us.
American and Canadian authorities have virtually stopped monitoring airborne radiation, and are not testing fish for radiation. Nuclear expert Arnie Gundersen says that high-level friends in the State Department told him Hillary Clinton signed a pact with her counterpart in Japan agreeing that the U.S. will continue buying seafood from Japan, despite that food is not being tested for radioactive materials. The root problem is that all of the world’s nuclear agencies are
entrapped by the nuclear industry. An effort by the Southern California Edison power company to secretly ramp up production and avoid public disclosure may have led to a tube leak at the San Onofre nuclear power plant. A steam rupture and radioactive leak resulted from a faulty alloy tubing installation. When bracing was redesigned and more tubes were added, instead of replacing the steam generator, these extensive modifications were a way to allow SCE to squeeze more power out of the plant while avoiding scrutiny from public department NRC regulators.
Whatever the outcome of Fukushima or San Onofre, a personal strategy change over to a powerful whole plant food based diet can improve detoxification of nuclides or radioactive elements. Dietary plant fibers, sulfur-containing antioxidants found in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, kale, and cabbage, along with pectin in fruits, and Green tea have all been shown to reduce levels of radioactive substances and provide protection against free radical damage.
So what would a 21st Century First Aid Anti-Radiation kit look like? Hopefully, for a start consider Dr. Dale’s Homeopathic RadiationX formula, HCG and BioIodine supplement product, with perhaps a few tasty, crisp, organic algae snack foods. Bon appétit!
