Food Solutions for a World of Increased Radiation

Ideas to Protect Yourself from Harmful Radiation

by John Kozinski

As the crisis in Japan unfolds, there is uncertainty about possible radiation that may affect Japan and the world.

Potassium iodide pills have been sold out at many of the American distributors.

Potassium iodide helps protect a person from the harmful effects of radioactive iodine by blocking it’s uptake into the thyroid. One possible serious effect of exposure to large doses of radioactive iodine is thyroid cancer.

There are some natural foods that will help if you have radiation exposure. Here is a list with some explanations.

1) Leafy greens: stimulate the colon and help the liver discharge radiation from the body.

2) Fermented foods: have the same effect as leafy greens. These include miso, natural cucumber pickles, and fermented sauerkraut. The best quality pickles are homemade or found in the refrigerated section of the store. They do not have vinegar as an ingredient.

3) Avoid or limit sugars. These will ferment in the gut and interfere with elimination.

4) Avoid excessive amounts of whole wheat flour products. The excess fiber will interfere with gut bacteria, hampering elimination.

5) Avoid hard and dry grains such as granola, and dried cereal. This kind of fiber creates bad bacteria hampering the gut.

6) Eat moderate amounts of grains and cooked vegetables, small amounts of beans regularly and fish along with some cooked fruit, healthy fats and natural seasonings. If you eat other forms of animal foods, be moderate. Excessive amounts will interfere with digestion.

7) Limit raw foods. Raw fiber is harder to digest and will hamper elimination

8) Good quality saturated fats block the toxicity of radioactive ions such as avocado and coconut oil. Increase these in times of a nuclear disaster.

9) Fatty fish: fat soluble vitamins in fatty fish like wild salmon or sardines aid elimination. Eat more often in a disaster.

10) Kelp tablets from clean waters or kombu powder made from kombu from clean waters. The natural iodine can replace the potassium iodine pills. Take a pill every 1-2 hours if exposed to radiation. North American Herb and Spice Company has good quality kelp under the name, PureKelp. If using kombu powder take a half teaspoon 3 times a day.

11) Miso has a substance that will remove radiation from the body. Prepare soups and season with a strong taste of miso if there is nuclear disaster. Drink 3 cups per day.

12) Umeboshi Plums: Take 1-2 daily. This will stimulate the liver and colon to eliminate radiation.

13) Supplements for Radiation disasters: organic selenium, 200 micrograms every hour for one week then 600 micrograms daily. Vitamin E: 400 IU every hour for 1-2 days, then 2400 IU daily. Buy Vitamin E as mixed tocopherols and/or tocotrienols.

14) North American Herb and Spice Company has a product that combines herbs, supplements and potassium iodine. It is called NukeProtect.

15) Chlorella: 2 – 500 mg. capsules 3 times per day or follow directions on the bottle

  1. do you happen to have research on fermented cabbage/suerkraut naturally fermented; no vinegar?

    looking for research that proves it does not block iodine uptake to thyroid.

    liked your web/ and the nutrition protocol very much. thankyou!

  2. When you hear the news or some Nuclear or Health Official telling you that “only extremely low levels of radiation have been detected and therefore there is no need to be concerned, there is no health threat to the American public.”

    Do not be comforted by this false sense of security. The first part of the statement is true, but the remainder is false.

    It’s not the loud noise that break glass molecules, it’s the frequency.
    It’s not the strong microwave levels that cause cellular damage, it’s the frequency
    It’s not the strong wireless signal that causes cellular damage, it’s the vibrational frequency.
    It’s not just high levels of radiation that cause damage, extreme low levels of radiation do too.

    These extreme low levels of biologically significant radiation hit North America Mid March 2011

    Cesium 137 accumulates in fatty tissues, liver, spleen and muscles
    * Iodide-131 accumulates in Thyroid, breast and ovaries
    * Strontium-90 concentrates in your bones and liver
    * Barium-140 causes bone tumors up to 30 years later
    * Tellurium-132 causes cell mutations, repeatedly via replication
    * Yttrium-0 damage to liver and respiration
    * Plutonium-244 concentrates in your liver
    * Uranium 235 accumulates in your bones and liver

    In 1972 Dr Abram Petkau discovered that low levels of radiation, over a longer period of time, were more damaging than higher doses over a short period of time.

    Once you ingest or inhale even very low levels of radioactive particles the Petkau Effect immediately starts potentially lethal tissue ionization.

    The phenomenon of the Petkau Effect basically means that you are ionizing or irradiating yourself continuously from the inside out. This insidious burning at your molecular level will impair your body long before there is a diagnosable disease.

    There is much that we can do to detox ourselves, our animals, our soils.
