There are effective methods for protecting your health against potential exposure to radiation. And no, it’s not by loading up on potassium iodide! Brown seaweed extract along with marine phytoplankton have been helpful in combating the effects of radiation.
Government officials claim radiation from Japanese reactors won’t reach our shores because Japan is 5,000 miles away. But that doesn’t mean radiation from the nuclear disaster there poses no threat to U.S. citizens, especially those living on the West Coast. According to the New York Times, half the mercury in the atmosphere over the U.S. originates in China — just as far away as Japan!
Since the 1950s, it’s become increasingly clear that there is no safe level of exposure to radiation. Yet we are all constantly exposed to low-level radiation in our everyday lives, especially in urban areas where there are multiple cell towers, wi-fi, wireless routers, cordless telephones, cell phones, radio towers and a myriad of other technologies bombarding our bodies with electromagnetic pollution and radio frequencies that are hazardous to our health.
Dr. Mercola, the New York Times best-selling author and health activist, says, “Even diagnostic scans have been attributed to causing tens of thousands of unnecessary cancers each and every year, so the fear of heavy fallout is understandable.”
He recommends watching the situation in Japan closely as it unfolds, but cautions that “strategies against radioactive fallout have their own health risks and should not be used willy-nilly.”
The most popular and potentially dangerous of these strategies is to take potassium iodide (KI). Many stores in Japan have already sold out of their KI supplies. But unless you live near active radiation fallout, the dangers of taking KI almost certainly outweigh the benefits.
Dr. Leonard Wartofsky, spokesman for the Endocrine Society and an expert on thyroids, says that it is “inappropriate, foolhardy and dangerous to be taking iodide supplements at this time.
It’s very important to hold off until it’s absolutely necessary.” That’s because taking KI for an extended amount of time can damage your thyroid and even induce hypothyroidism.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) warns that taking a higher dose of KI, or taking KI more often than recommended, does not offer more protection and can cause severe illness or death. Other very common effects of KI are…
- Allergic reactions (possibly severe)
- Intestinal upset
- Inflammation of the salivary glands
And KI does nothing to help your body detoxify radiation exposure or repair DNA; it only decreases exposure to radioactive iodine.
So What Can You Do to Combat the Effects of Exposure to Radiation?
One of the most effective ways is to consume foods that supply your body with the co-factors and enzymes that directly repair DNA. Nuclear radiation quickly damages DNA cells — which then mutate.
With enough mutation, fatal diseases develop. DNA damage occurs even without exposure to nuclear fallout, so it’s important to make sure you are facilitating the repair of your DNA — something KI cannot do.
Two excellent options that can detoxify the body and facilitate DNA repair are marine phytoplankton and brown seaweed extract.
Marine phytoplankton is a simple microscopic algae — which is known to have the strongest and broadest effect on DNA repair. You may never have heard about it, but certain microalgaes like chlorella were used with notable success after the Chernobyl disaster to detoxify victims’ bodies of radioactive heavy metals. Unicellular microfoods like marine phytoplankton also help fight radiation by…
- Supporting the body as it repairs radiation damage to DNA
- Nourishing the brain, heart, and every cell in the body so they can function optimally
Of the microalgaes, says Ian Clark, founder of Ocean’s Alive, “marine phytoplankton are the optimal choice” for combating nuclear DNA damage because it is …
==> Contains the full spectrum of amino acids
==> Is most bioavailable
==> Has smallest cell size
One amazing strain of marine phytoplankton in particular named NannochloropsisGaditana contains the highest nutritional values for human consumption. It is extremely tiny, 9 times smaller than a red blood cell — yet, there is so much life energy stored in this single cell.
Brown seaweed extract is another wonderful weapon against the effects of radioactive fallout. After the Chernobyl meltdown, a super concentrated brown seaweed extract called Modifilan was readily deployed to detoxify thousands of victims.
Modifilan was also given to more than 2,000 reserve-drafted men between the ages of 25 to 45 who were assigned the task of re-excavating Chernobyl and changing the sewage system out. The men took 2 tablespoons of brown seaweed on a daily basis for about 2 months under doctors’ supervision.
The results of the study exceeded all expectations! Not only did Modifilan remove heavy metals from these men’s bodies — it also rehabilitated thyroid gland function and increased energy levels in those who consumed it. Men with pre-existing health conditions — especially those over the age of 40 — reported many other powerful and unexpected healing experiences.
The bottom line?
Low-level radiation affects us all. That reality gets lost in the hubbub and panic over high-level radiation threats during tragedies like the meltdown in Japan. But some knee-jerk reactions — like excessive and unnecessary usage of potassium iodide — are actually harmful.
Better methods, such as taking marine phytoplankton and brown seaweed extract, will not only help to protect you from radioactive materials, but will also improve your overall health.
The company that manufactures Modifilan distributes its brown seaweed extract through a network of medical doctors (MDs), naturopathic doctors (NDs), dieticians, chiropractors, kinesiologists and online distributors such as Poseidon’s Harvest. The most bioavailable strain of marine phytoplankton, on the other hand, is available from Ocean’s Alive.
