(The Best Years in Life)
The recent false ballistic missile alert in Hawaii and the tense situation with
North Korea have made many of us think the unthinkable and wonder what would
happen in the event of a real nuclera weapons attack. Besides nuclear weapons,
there is also an ever-present danger in many areas of a nuclear reactor event
like the one in Fukushima, which continues to spew and leak radiation despite
fading from the news.
Thus, now might be a very good time to learn what measures to take if such a
horrific catastrophe actually happened.
Following are several precautionary and restorative measures to take in the
event of radioactive contamination.
Things to do before, during and after radiation contamination:
First and foremost is potassium iodide (KI). Potassium iodide binds to
radioactive iodine and is cleared from the boy within 24-72 hours. It is by far
the item most used for radiation poisoning. According to the USFDA guidelines,
the following doses should be taken after likely internal contamination.
Adults, including breastfeeding women: 130 mg
Children between 3 and 18 years of age and less than 150 pounds: 65 mg
Children 150 pounds or more: 130 mg (regardless of age)
Infants and children between 1 month and 3 years old: 32 mg (whether nursing or
Nursing and non-nursing newborns from birth to 1 month old: 16 mg.
Instead of waiting for nuclear fallout to arrive, it is a good idea to begin
taking lesser preventive doses of potassium iodide in order to have enough
iodine circulating in the body to prevent radioactive iodine from binding
internally. Estimates of how much preventive iodide to take generally vary from
6 to 50 mg of daily iodine. Note that the average Japanese consumes 13 mg of
iodine daily, which is 100 times more than the average US resident.
If possible, cover garden vegetables and fruits ahead of
When fallout does occur, precautionary
measures can help minimize exposure and ingestion of radioactive materials,
including staying inside, keeping doors and windows closed and turning off air
conditioners. If the nuclear event is close so that the fallout is greater,
shelter in a room where you can block out all outside air using items such duct
tape and thick, quality filters. Do not turn on the air conditioner or furnace
and stay inside for at least 48 hours and preferably 72 hours or more.
If you take shelter, make sure that you have plenty of water
and food items. Space heaters, fans, first aid kits, portable toilets when there
are no restroom facilities, plenty of toilet paper are all important items to
have on hand. A small office/dorm size refrigerator would be a great item to
have. It would also be good to have items such as a propane heater with propane
cylinders as well as flashlights and electric lanterns with plenty of batteries
in case the power goes out.
Be sure to bring your pets inside BEFORE they are exposed to
radiation and plan on keeping them with you for the duration. Do NOT bring pets
inside once they have been exposed to radiation, since doing so would be fatal
for everyone and once a pet has been exposed to radiation in a significant
fallout area, sadly there is no hope of saving them.
Once you do go outside again, wear a face mask which you can
dispose of or replace the filter, wear gloves which can be washed or disposed of
before returning inside. Similarly, wash clothes upon returning
indoors wearing gloves to handle the clothes and deposit them in the washer.
To help dissipate fallout, spray the
entire property, including exposed vehicles, with a hose. Shower immediately
after returning inside.
Other uggested items
to take to help deal with radioactive fallout:
*Take plenty of supplemental echinacea, a powerful pathogen fighter and health
builder. Studies, including ones conducted after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster,
have shown that echinacea is excellent for preventing and restoring radiation
*Use bentonite clay. Bentonite clay can be used for heavy metal detox as well as
to remove radiation. Internal clays have been used for detoxification for
hundreds of years. As with all clays, the more you use, the quicker you tend to
detox and the longer the treatment the better.
*Eat sea vegetables. Studies dating to 1968 found that sea vegetables contained a
polysaccharide substance, called sodium alginate, which selectively bound
radioactive strontium and eliminated it from the body. Seaweeds are a natural
source of potassium iodine and are also rich in antioxidants that protect us
from degenerative diseases such cancer as well as slow down the aging process.
*Eat nutrient dense foods to maintain and rebuild a strong immune system.
Supergreen foods and powders would be excellent. Some suggested anti-radiation
diet items are:
*Brassica vegetables and 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, yeast, sardines, liver, anchovies and mackerel
Cod liver oil and olive oil
Avoid sugars, sweets and wheat
A good whole-food derived multivitamin/multimineral supplement
*Consume chlorophyll rich wheatgrass. Tests have indicated that a wheatgrass rich
diet improves survival after exposure to radiation and that chlorophyll
increases resistance to radiation.
*Use colloidal silver and natural anti-virals such as olive leaf extract to help
the immune system ward off infections and illness. Immune systems are typically
weakened by radiation exposure.
*Oral sodium bicarbonite (baking soda) can diminish the severity of the changes
produced by uranium in the kidneys. Do not exceed six doses of half teaspoonful
in glass of cool water, at about two hour intervals the
first day and four doses of half teaspoonful thereafter
*Take N-Acetyl cysteine or use coffee enemas to increase gulathione levels, which
are decimated by exposure to radiation.
*Use marine phytoplankton to reduce the side effects of radiation exposure.

Silver inhibits the growth of
one-celled organisms, (such as
bacteria and viruses) by
deactivating the organism's
oxygen metabolism enzymes. In
turn, this destroys its' cell
membranes, stopping the
replication of its' DNA.
Calcium Bentonite Clay
helps to cleanse the body’s cells and colon by pulling
toxins out and eliminating them via the colon, kidneys
and liver. Typical use for an adult is 1-2 teaspoons per
day in a 6-8 oz. glass of water.
External use deep cleanses skin pores, removing dirt and
impurities, lifting out poisons and toxins stored in the
epidermis; pimples and blackheads are absorbed into the
clay bed, resulting in accelerated healing and
nourishment of the skin. The skin is clean, refreshed,
and alive. You can see and feel the difference.
Continued use results in a more beautiful, healthy skin.
Healing Clay is 100% Natural. No additives. No
fragrances. No Animal Products. (Note: Initial use may
result in a temporary increase of blemishes as toxins
are pulled from the epidermal layers.)
