How Food can Protect our Families from Radiation Exposure

I have worried about my friends who live in Japan.  Yet at the same time, in the midst of the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe, I am inspired and awed by the great peace, power of community and strength of the Japanese people.

Today, trace levels of radiation from the explosion at Fukushima are now in Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Massachusetts, Nevada and other Western states. Despite the low levels found, the risk of radiation exposure hits home. Although we are exposed to significant amounts of radiation already in our daily lives (cell phone towers, microwaves, X-rays, CT scans, yes even cigarette smoking), the low levels of radioactive material leaking out from a nuclear plant on the other side of the earth makes it seem more significant.

What radioactive material should we be looking out for?

The byproducts of the recent nuclear explosion are Iodine-131, strontium-90 and cesium-137. Iodine-131 travels best (therefore the first material to be found in the US), but after 80 days, only less than 0.1% will remain.  Cesium-137 can travel too, but once it falls on the ground, it will stay there for 300 years with only 0.1% remaining.

 

Why should we be concerned?

Because these radioactive materials can enter our bodies through ingesting, absorption through the skin or inhalation.  Moreover, they have been shown to cause different types of cancer.

 

What can Mamas do to protect their families?

Before going out to buy Potassium Iodide, Mamas can simply use Raw Food to:

1. protect our family’s bodies by filling up our cells with good minerals  and thereby keeping radioactive materials out, and

2. detoxify in order to get rid of any radioactive materials already present.


How can we use Raw Food to protect our families from radiation exposure?

From Gabriel Cousens’ A Comprehensive Holistic Approach to the Plague of Radiation and What To Do:

 

1. Serve up foods that protect the body from radiation exposure:

MINERAL PROTECTS FROM
 

Iodine (found in kelp and strawberries)

 

 

thyroid and gonads

 

iodine-131

 

Potassium (found in chard, crimini mushrooms and spinach)

 

 

muscles, kidneys, liver, and reproductive organs

 

cesium-137

 

Calcium (found in spinach, turnip greens, mustard greens and collard greens)

 

 

bones

 

strontium-90

Other excellent foods that protect against radiation are:

- garlic, onion, ginseng

- echinacea, rosemary

- green tea – 20 cups gives 97% more protection against radiation

- chlorophyll-rich foods: cabbage, leafy greens, spirulina (decreases side effects of radiation by 50%), wheatgrass, sprouts, blue green algae

- beets can lessen cesium-137 absorption by 97-100%

- bee pollen contains 15% lecithin which protects against all 3 radioactive materials: iodine-131, strontium-90 and cesium-137

 

2. Serve up foods that bind to radioactive material, turning them into harmless salts and then ridding the body of them:

CHELATES (foods that bind) DETOXIFIES BODY OF
 

Kelp family (kelp, arame, wakame, kombu, hijiki) contains sodium alginate

 

 

Strontium-90

 

Green algae (chlorella)

 

 

Cesium-137

Other excellent chelates:

apples, sunflowers seeds, miso, grains, beans, peas

 

3. Serve up alkalizing foods that are low in the food chain protect the body against radiation:

- raw vegan foods because they have lower concentrations of radioactive materials:

- avoid animal products because they contain up to 15 x (milk) and 30 x (beef) more radioactive materials

    Nascent iodine is absorbed better and faster by the body. In a radiation event such as the one in Japan, nascent iodine is quicker as a defense. eating iodine rich foods can also prepare the body from many forms of harm. Here’s a good list of foods that are rich in iodine- http://www.globalhealingcenter.com/natural-health/iodine-foods/

      Thanks Mr. Iodine!
