Radioactive Cesium and Iodine Concerns

Update on Radiation Exposure Support
We wanted to give you the latest update that we have on the radiation exposure, the actual threat, the specific compounds we are dealing with and particularly what we need to protect our bodies.

Lower Health Risk
Currently the health risk of the radiation from the recent Japanese disaster is stated as rather small for us in the USA. Those who are truly feeling the effects are those struggling in Japan with severe radioactivity, cold, hunger, and homelessness. Our empathy goes to them.

Officials are saying that the amount of any fallout that is wafting across the Pacific Ocean to the U.S. coast is so diluted that it poses little to no health risk. Wind, rain and salt spray helps to clean the air over the vast ocean between Japan and the United States.

Even with that said, we still feel it is wise to be informed about how these substances interact in our bodies and how best to support our systems for the levels that we are exposed to currently as well as preparedness for possibly more threatening levels in the future.

Radioactive Material Involved
Nuclear experts say the main elements released are radioactive cesium and iodine. They can combine with the salt in sea water to become cesium chloride and sodium iodide, which are common and abundant elements and could readily dilute in the wide expanse of the Pacific, according to Steven Reese, director of the Radiation Center at Oregon State.

For the reasons above some populations of the world are focusing on adequate sea salt consumption as the key need for dealing with the recent radiation exposure in order to bind with any cesium or radioactive iodine in our bodies.

Also cesium is seen by the body as if it were potassium so a potassium deficiency would tend to make one more receptive to radioactive hazards posed by cesium. A key step for dealing with this substance is therefore to correct any deficiencies by ingesting adequate amounts of potassium. While radioactive iodine affects thyroid, cesium affects muscles, reproductive system then eventually the liver and kidneys, ultimately everywhere but thyroid. What we can do to protect ourselves is to make sure we have all the nutrients and minerals needed by the body, especially potassium and sodium.

More About Our Mineral Channels
Let’s discuss further how our bodies use minerals in our system. We refer to the way the body uses minerals as “mineral channels” that work like a pump. The minerals are used in a cycle; it takes adequate levels of calcium to absorb calcium and it takes calcium for the body to excrete old calcium. In the case of radiation exposure our concern is about the Potassium/Sodium/Iodine channels. Our concern is from radioactive isotopes of Potassium and Sodium, which can get lodged in our body and do damage. The more we consume high quality, biologically sourced, whole forms of ideal minerals the more our body can dump junky and toxic forms of the minerals. The healthier the system, the more the body has the ability to choose the best form of mineral and dump the old toxic form.

The Point: If your body is already saturated with high quality minerals, not only will you be feeling great, but you will be less likely to absorb a toxic form of the mineral(s)

The Importance of Antioxidants
Antioxidants neutralize free radicals. Being that radioactive material creates free-radicals in our bodies that wreck havoc on our cells and DNA, this is very important to address.

In conclusion, the previous information we have given regarding radiation protection still stands AND we recommend adding some focus to the potassium and sodium channels as well.

Updated Recommendation List:

  • Antioxidant Support: Super Nano Green Tea 2oz liquid still stands as the king of all radiation protection products regardless of what radioactive substance we are dealing with. Take 1 teaspoon a day.
    "In the 2nd World War, Hiroshima was bombed by atom bomb. The victims who had been drinking tea long term suffered lighter radiation diseases, and got comparatively healthier and longer life with positive leukocyte specification. The fact aroused people's attention on anti-radiation effect in tea." 
  • Iodine: Take 3-6 capsules per day of XenoStat, Quantum 90Vcaps which contains high quality iodine from seaweeds. Taking quality Iodine has been shown to prevent the radioactive iodine from being able to bind to anything in our bodies.
  • Sodium: Consume 1 teaspoon a day of Pink Salt, Premier 12 oz Granules to provide quality sodium chloride as well as other trace minerals.
  • Potassium: Eat more potassium rich foods such as potatoes with the skins, kiwis, leafy greens, bananas, oranges, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. Products that we carry with quality potassium are: Tomato Concentrate, Q. (Powder) (10 oz) , HCL Activator, Quantum 90Vcaps

How would you know if you are potassium or sodium deficient?
Well, since the sodium-potassium balance affects electrolytes, a deficiency would, among other things, cause slow responses.

Potassium: Early warning signs of potassium deficiency would also include dry skin and some muscle weakness.

Sodium: Lick sweat from your own shoulder or arm. If you do not taste salty then you are salt deficient. Low adrenal function, constipation and inadequate production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach are also signs of salt deficiency.
