The Japanese nuclear emergency has taken a turn for the worse. There are now at least five nuclear reactors that are in jeopardy, and three of them are assumed to have had partial meltdowns as a result of loss of coolant as a result of earthquake damage to the main pumping systems. They are pumping seawater into the affected plants to attempt to keep the rods cool enough to avoid a full meltdown.
There is already an increased amount of radioactive material in the environment. If there is a full meltdown – a steam explosion carrying nuclear waste out of the reactors – some of it will be taken by the jet stream over the Pacific and will contaminate the environment in Hawaii and the US, Canada, and Mexico.
There has already been a fire at one of the nuclear reactors that has released raw vaporized waste material into the environment. It will take about 5 days for the pollution to reach California (2 days to Hawaii). The primary pollutants from nuclear waste are radioactive cesium, strontium, iodine, and plutonium. For these, the following should be done:
1. To prevent absorption of environmental iodine, stock up and take kelp or potassium iodide tablets, or eat some seaweed each day. The RDA of iodine is 150 mcg (micrograms) per day. If you decide not to eat seaweed for extra iodine, take double that amount, about 300 mcg, in kelp or iodine tablets or capsules each day, in divided doses (one AM, one PM).
2. To prevent absorption of environmental strontium and cesium, eat some seaweed each day and take calcium supplements. The RDA of calcium is 1000-1500 mg per day. Take this amount in supplementation each day, in divided doses.
3. To prevent absorption of plutonium and other radioactive heavy metals, use a heavy metal chelator (such as MSM) and an absorbent (such as chlorella). Buy powdered MSM, marked “Opti-MSM” (because other products taste terrible), and take 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of it (about 2000-4000 mg) mixed with spring or distilled water at each meal. Buy chlorella in tablets, capsules, or powder, and take 3000 mg about 20 minutes before each meal.
