Quote: "Iodine does not block radioactive cesium!Many people are purchasing iodine sources such as potassium iodide or nascent iodine as a defense against radiation. But few people know the truth about iodine!
"Over the long term, the big threat to human health is cesium-137, which has a half-life of 30 years. The radiation from cesium-137 can throw cellular machinery out of order, including the chromosomes, leading to an increased risk of cancer."Iodine protects primarily just one organ: your thyroid. And it protects your thyroid from just one isotope: Iodine-131, which has a half-life of around 7 days. Iodine does nothing to protect you from radioactive cesium. Iodine, in fact, has no ability whatsoever to block, capture or bind with cesium isotopes. (Iodine binds well with calcium and potassium, however.)
- New York Times (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/...)
Unfortunately, the over-marketing of iodine for radiation protection has misled many people into thinking they are "bulletproof" against radiation if they take iodine. This is flatly false.
The best protection comes from covering all routes of exposure to ionizing radiation: air, food, water and direct exposure to radioactive sources (such as fuel rods).
Accordingly, all those preparing against nuclear catastrophe should have both iodine and Cesium Eliminator. A water filter that blocks radioisotopes would be a very smart third strategy to pursue. (Check out Seychelle filters.)
For emergency use onlyCesium Eliminator is not a daily supplement or "vitamin." It does not contribute any minerals or vitamins to your nutritional needs. It is for emergency use only, to be used only when consuming foods or beverages a person believes may be significantly contaminated with radioactive cesium.
Cesium Eliminator is shelf-stable and is safe to store alongside other preparedness supplies such as emergency medicine or precious metals.
"Cesium-137 is an especially dangerous fission product because of its high yield during fission, moderate half-life, high-energy decay pathway, and chemical reactivity. Because of these properties, cesium-137 is a major contributor to the total radiation released during nuclear accidents."Cesium Eliminator should only be used as a last-ditch resort when you cannot find food or water that's free from radioactive cesium. Your best and first strategy should always be to avoid radioactive food in the first place. But in scenarios of near-starvation when you must eat radioactive cesium isotopes or drink cesium-137-contaminated water in order to live, Cesium Eliminator can bind with cesium isotopes and help your body eliminate them naturally (so that they aren't absorbed into your blood).* Cesium Eliminator is not a drug and no claims are made for any ability to treat, cure or prevent any disease.

Combined with Heavy Metals Defense for even more protectionThe No. 1 ingredient in Cesium Eliminator is a specially-manufactured zeolite material that's made to a specific particle size.
All zeolites are naturally made of aluminosilicates. When they are ground to a specific particle size, this creates some amount of aluminum dust (with very low levels of lead found in the dust as well).
For this reason, we combine Cesium Eliminator with a small amount of our patent-pending Heavy Metals Defense formula which binds with heavy metals using ion exchange chemistry.
Heavy Metals Defense eliminates 98.7% of aluminum, on average, across a broad range of concentrations up to 20 ppm. Heavy Metals Defense captures and helps eliminate 99.9% of lead.*
As a result of this combination, Cesium Eliminator is highly effective at capturing cesium isotopes while also leaving behind virtually no traces of aluminum or lead. Nearly all these toxic elements are eliminated by the body through natural elimination action (bowel movements).
Cesium Eliminator is not "digested" by the bodyTo understand the action of Cesium Eliminator, it's important to understand that ZEOLITES CANNOT BE DIGESTED in the human body. They pass through the body much like sand. (If you eat sand, you will poop sand. You do not digest sand.)
Human gastric acid is not strong enough to dissociate zeolite materials. Instead, zeolites move through the body as a kind of "mechanical sponge" that binds with certain elements, including isotopes of cesium. When those zeolites are eliminated by your body through bowel movements, they take with them whatever toxic elements they captured during digestion.
Remember this very important medical fact: Whatever you poop out, you do not absorb into your blood! And if it's not in your blood, it can't get to all your internal organs. Bowel movements are part of your body's natural elimination process to rid the body of toxic elements or unneeded substances.
Important: Cesium Eliminator does not block radiationThere is no such thing as any dietary supplement or drug that blocks radiation. Radiation is a physical phenomenon and the laws of physics cannot be altered by a supplement. As a result, no dietary supplement should ever been seen as some sort of "radiation shield" that makes you immune to ionizing radiation. Only a thick lead suit can accomplish that.
There are some dishonest supplements marketed on the 'net which ridiculously claim to "block radiation" to the body's cells. Such claims are scientifically false and invalid.
There are legitimate arguments for DNA-protective supplements such as antioxidants which may help prevent ionizing DNA damage and / or support the rapid repair of such damage, but your overall best strategy is to avoid exposure to radiation in the first place.
Avoiding exposure means:
- Avoiding inhaling radioactive particles of dust (airborne)
- Avoiding eating radioactive food
- Avoiding drinking water contaminated with radioisotopes
- Avoiding physical proximity to sources of ionizing radiation such as Fukushima fuel rods

"Immediate Right-to-Know" Posted by sandtrout2010 on March 18, 2011, 3:30 pm, in reply to ""Very low radiation detected on west coast: sources: Reuters"."who would know if lying?""
"This why we should be kept informed from the outset exactly how and where any radioactive contaminants might appear following any radiological accident (and of-course any human "nuclear activity" of any-kind).
The lack of information we get appears to be a function of the danger of the activity.
Why not build the back-up generators on stilts? Because we are so scared of the process already any risk assessment beyond this point becomes a physical impossibility."

Buy Kelp (iodine source and endocrine supporter).
Use crystal sea-salt in your cooking http://curezone.com/foods/salt/book_seasalts_hidden_powers.htm
Researchers found higher incidence in recovery from radiation exposure in the population of Nagasaki after the bomb, this was attributed to the relatively high level of salt intake and seaweeds in the coastal diet.
Also include foods containing trace elements and minerals (fresh or dried mushrooms are a good source, some like Ganoderma probably have a place in the "radiologists" pharmacy -a "radiologist" in this case being a physician who generally doesn't, rather than one who generally does-), and ensure your vitamin intake is at least at the level of the R.D.A, "active" cultures and mineral supplements should also be considered.
"Mushroom Immune Defence" and other similar products may be beneficial, also jiaogulan, quote"...
Quote: "Leticia's Amazing Story
About nine years ago, at the age of 58, she was diagnosed with cervical cancer. She underwent radiation therapy and received localized cobalt treatment inserted into her cervix. This made her extremely weak and sick. After two weeks of the treatments, Leticia decided she would rather die than undergo that horrible torture. Doctors gave her six months to live.
Resolving to do her best to fight the cancer, Leticia made whatever lifestyle improvements she could, becoming a vegetarian as well as endeavoring to purify her existence through meditation. After a year, the cancer had not advanced; however, she continued to feel sick and was always weak. Then a friend recommended a Chinese doctor, who told her about a Chinese herb, jiaogulan, which was known for helping cancer patients. He sent her a jiaogulan plant with his wife, who was visiting Thailand. Leticia grew the herb and made a tea from the dried leaves. The tea gave her energy and allowed her to sleep well. Gradually and steadily she regained her health. She is now sixty-five years old, healthy, happy, beautiful, and enjoying her grandchildren. She feels that without jiaogulan she would certainly be dead.
As a result of her experience with jiaogulan tea, she has expanded her pesticide-free, herb-growing capabilities to create a company that serves customers around the world with a pleasant tasting medicinal herb tea."" From Forum thread by Williamtheb
Teas and foods containing high levels of anti-oxidants are useful and bowel health is also essential, high-fibre foods should be considered.
Aloe Vera is a great detoxifier but there are others. Aloe Vera however rehydrates driving out toxins and replacing them with trace-elements, minerals and vitamins (including B12)."

"With the recent earthquake in Japan, resulting in the instability of several nuclear reactors, many people have been asking what they can do to protect themselves from radiation exposure or poisoning, or what they can do to naturally detoxify their system if they are exposed. The following is a compilation of the research I have been able to find on ways to naturally and safely prevent and/or detoxify your body from radiation exposure/poisoning. I will start out by listing the various protocols that have been shown to be effective, then I will expand on the details.
1. Diet consisting mainly of brown rice, miso and seaweed
2. Other additions to the diet
· Spirulina, chlorella and the algaes (kelp, etc.)
· Brassica vegetables and high beta carotene vegetables
· Beans and lentils and other foods high in nucleotide content
· Potassium, magnesium, calcium and mineral rich foods
· cod liver oil and olive oil
· Avoid sugars and sweets and wheat
3. Clay, Sea salt and Baking Soda Baths
4. Homeopathic remedies
5. Schuessler’s Bioplasma
Diet of brown rice, seaweed and miso
At the time of the atomic bombing, Tatsuichiro Akizuki, M.D. was Director of the Department of Internal Medicine at St. Francis’s Hospital in Nagasaki and 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. ?By imposing this diet on his staff and patients, no one succumbed to radiation poisoning whereas the occupants of hospitals located much further away from the blast incident suffered severe radiation fatalities. Much of this positive result has to do with the fact that the sea vegetables contain substances that bind radioactive particles and escort them out of the body.(Tatsuichiro Akuziki, M.D. Nagasaki 1945, London Quarter books, 1981).
Seaweeds are very high in mineral content. 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. Zinc inhibits zinc-65 uptake and sulfur is preventative for sulfur-35 (a product of nuclear reactors) incorporation by the body.
Sea vegetables can prevent assimilation of different radionuclitides, heavy metals such as cadmium, and other environmental toxins.
“ An experiment conducted by J.F. Stara at the Environmental Protection Agency showed that sodium alginate significantly reduced the amount of radio active strontium in the bones of cats. Stara observed that radio active strontium in the bones is resecreted into the intestines where it is bound by alginate, neutralized then excreted in the stools.”
“There is no family of foods more protective against radiation and environmental pollutants than sea vegetables … sea vegetables can prevent assimilation of different radionuclitides, heavy metals such as cadmium, and other environmental toxins.”....
