Iodine to Protect Against Fukushima Radiation
When the Guardian reports that the meltdown at Fukushima is something to still worry about I can finally come forward and not sound like a complete wack-a-doo. Sadly our government and news outlets have not been straight with us on how much radiation is still being emitted into our oceans and our land. There have been several articles warning us of these dangers, and how samples of milk from Western North America and Canada show traces of contamination. I personally don’t eat fish, but now I am warning my fish eating friends to be cautious with their sushi since the nuclear disaster. So what to do in these frightening times with melt downs reaching our sea shores? Start increasing your intake of iodine. I am giving my children extra kelp and a few drops of iodine a week in their water. (I’m not a doctor so make sure this is right for you before administrating.) Taking pure iodine will make it more difficult for your thyroid to absorb radiated iodine. The incidence of thyroid cancer was off the charts after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Neighboring Poland dispensed iodine supplements, and avoided the devastation, so can we.
