Radiation Prevention and Detox

Here are a few suggestions for preventing radiation build up and also protecting oneself at the cellular level.

Radiation exposure causes approximately 3% of all cancers: it causes the formation of a very reactive free radical called a hydroxyradical. The detoxification ability of glutathione (GSH) plays a key role in neutralizing hydroxyradicals. Studies conducted around the world — from Switzerland to Spain to India to Germany — show the effect of glutathione (GSH) on radiation damage. This is why cancer specialists are now raising glutathione (GSH) levels in cancer patients who are undergoing radiation therapy. Detoxification benefits from boosted glutathione (GSH) levels help cancer patients better tolerate the radiation exposure.

Low levels of glutathione (GSH) are connected with an increased risk of developing cancer from radiation exposure. And people undergoing radiation treatment for cancer experienced stronger negative effects and greater injury when they have low glutathione (GSH) levels, because white blood immune cells are better able to withstand radiation therapy when cancer specialists raised glutathione (GSH) prior to treatment. (This should show the folly and flawed logic of using radiation for the treatment of cancer.)

Where to get Glutathione (just a few suggestions):

If you take oral supplements then you MUST take the precursors and co-factors for making Glutathione and not pure Glutathione. The research has found that the bioavailability is greater and there is a very high risk if you take pure Glutathione to over detox too fast and the detox organs would not be able to excrete fast enough. Also another product, high quality whey protein will give your body the precursors to manufacture glutathione so your liver can deal with the extra toxic load. If you cannot tolerate whey, then check out our website for glutathione precursor supplements available as either a transdermal creme or oral supplementation.

At the time of the atomic bombing during World War II, Dr. Tatsuichiro Akizuki was Director of the Department of Internal Medicine at St. Francis’s Hospital in Nagasaki. He fed his staff and patients a strict diet of brown rice, miso and tamari soy soup, wakame, kombu and other seaweed, Hokkaido pumpkin, and sea salt. He also prohibited the consumption of sugar and sweets since they suppress the immune system. No one succumbed to radiation poisoning, whereas the occupants of hospitals located much further away from the blast incident suffered severe radiation fatalities.

Sea vegetables, including kelp, contain the polysaccharide sodium alginate, which selectively binds radioactive particles of strontium and escorts them out of the body. (This was discovered by a research team at McGill University of Montreal, headed by Dr. Stanley Skoryna, in 1968.) Sodium alginate also binds with other metal pollutants such as excess barium, cadmium and zinc.

This is why various seaweeds and algae are typically used to treat radiation victims. In Chernobyl, 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 also proved that children on this protocol experienced enhanced immune systems, increased T-cell counts (T-cells are soldiers of the immune system), and reduced radioactivity levels and since that time the Russians have been researching the use of their own kelps from Vladivlostok, from which they have isolated the polysaccharide U-Fucoidan, which is another radioactive detoxifier.

Chlorella algae, which builds immune response and helps eliminate heavy metals, has also shown radioprotective effects. Because they bind heavy metals, algae should be consumed after exposure to any type of radioactive contamination. (Israeli scientists have also treated Chernobyl children with doses of natural beta carotene from Dunaliella algae to help normalize their blood chemistry.)

Yet another benefit of the sea vegetables rarely discussed is their high mineral content, which is a bonus in the case of radioactive exposure. Consuming natural iodine, such as in the seaweeds, helps prevent the uptake of iodine-131 while iron inhibits the absorption of plutonium-238 and plutonium-239. Vitamin B-12 inhibits cobalt-60 uptake (used in nuclear medicine), zinc inhibits zinc-65 uptake and sulfur is preventative for sulfur-35 (a product of nuclear reactors) incorporation by the body.

Where to get sea vegetables (just a few suggestions):
Maine Coast Sea Vegetables
Mountain Rose Herbs
Sodium Alginate: can be purchased in capsule form from Seroyal/Genestra, and also in bulk on the Internet

Where to get iodine (just a few suggestions):

Because miso soup is so effective in helping prevent radiation sickness, Japanese researchers have identified the presence of an active ingredient called zybicolin, discovered in 1972, which acts as a binding agent to also detoxify and eliminate radioactive elements (such as strontium) and other pollutants from the body.

Where to get miso (just a few suggestions):
Any good health food store. Asian Markets also have miso. Make sure to get organic miso! Otherwise, it will likely be made with Genetically Engineered (GE) soy. Those sensitive to gluten should get miso made with rice, not wheat or barley.

The kelps and algaes aren’t the only natural foods with radio-detoxifying effects. Green tea has proven “radioprotective effects” whether consumed either before or after exposure to radiation. Studies from Japan and China also suggest that the ingredients in tea are radioactive antagonists.

Where to get green tea (just a few suggestions):
Most health food stores carry good quality green tea, and you want to use organic green tea. Also the young green tea is even fresher and more pleasant tasting with just a tinge of natural sweetness.  The plant naturally draws up fluoride through its roots. You don’t want to get extra fluoride. Also, it appears that green tea may negate the effects of some other herbs.

Nuclear workers potentially exposed to radioactive sulfur need a higher content of sulfur in their diet. MSM supplements provide a source of dietary sulfur. And -thiol supplements such as cysteine, lipoic acid and glutathione also help detoxify the body, as well as address other health problems.

An anti-radiation diet should focus on the following foods:

  • Miso soup
  • Spirulina, chlorella and algae (kelp, etc.) I love to take E3Live Blue-Green Algae (see website below)
  • Brassica vegetables and high beta carotene vegetables
  • Organic Beans and lentils
  • Potassium, calcium and mineral rich foods like kale, collard greens, and parsley
  • High nucleotide content foods to assist in cellular repair including spirulina, chlorella, algae, yeast, sardines, liver, anchovies and mackerel
  • Cod liver oil
  • Avoid sugars and sweets and wheat
  • A good multivitamin/multimineral supplement My Fav is Life Pak Nano, which uses microdosing and nano technology to maximum absorbtion and effects.

Depleted uranium is currently in the journalistic spotlight because US weapons are made from this material, and after being fired leave a legacy of depleted uranium dust in the environment, which anyone can absorb. Because the kidneys are usually the first organs to show chemical damage upon uranium exposure, military manuals suggest doses or infusions of sodium bicarbonate to help alkalinize the urine if this happens. This makes the uranyl ion less kidney-toxic and promotes excretion of the nontoxic uranium carbonate complex.
