Worried About Radioactive Fallout? Here’s What You Can Do
With concern growing over the risk of radiation exposure from the nuclear reactor accident in Japan, concerned parents are asking what steps they can take to protect their families. And interestingly, they are not alone as people around the country, particularly on the West Coast, are now buying foods and nutritional supplements in an effort to counter the effects of radiation and many of these products are now out of stock in stores throughout the West.
If you are concerned and want to exercise precaution, nutritionists recommed lots of dark green leafy vegetables to help counter the effects of radioactive fallout as well as supplements that contain kelp, chlorella, spirulina, green foods, and selenium. As always, should you have any questions, please consult your physician.
Additional ways that people can protect themselves from radiation through food and nutrition may include the following:
• Buckwheat and brown rice
• Broccoli, cabbage and other sulfur rich vegetables
• Carrots, sunflower seeds, apples and other high-pectin foods
• Radishes, artichokes and beets (liver-cleansing foods)
• Green and black tea
• Vitamins A, beta-carotene, B complex and C; and zinc, calcium and magnesium
In such uncertain and unprecedented times, believe in your abilities to exercise precaution and protect the health of your loved ones.
And as always, should you have any questions, please consult your physician.
