Foods traditionally held to be protective against radiation
Organic, uncontaminated brown rice, miso and tamari soy soup, wakame, kombu and other seaweed, Hokkaido pumpkin, and sea salt are traditionally held to be protective against radiation, as the clinical results of atsuichiro Akizuki, M.D in a hospital outside of Nagasaki showed.
Avoid Sugar and sweets as they suppress the immune system.
Diets rich in nucleotides are necessary for the repair of DNA and damaged cells. Diets rich in these components are highly recommended if you are experiencing the effects of radiation contamination. Other rich sources of nucleotides are anchovies, mackerel, sardines, yeast, lentils, most beans, organically raised animal liver, oysters, chlorella and spirulina. But remember, they MUST be sourced from non Pacific waters and, because of the BP oil disaster, from non Gulf sources as well.
barley grass and chlorella
Chlorophyll closely resembles human blood and is used to cleanse, detoxify, purify and heal many conditions. It retards bacterial growth, detoxifies heavy metals from the body, increases wound healing, detoxifies the liver and other organs, deodorizes the body, removes putrefactive bacteria from the colon, aids healing of 11 types of skin diseases, relieves ulcers, gastritis, pancreatitis and other inflammatory conditions, helps heal gum diseases, and inhibits radiation and the metabolic activation of many carcinogens. Many studies have reported the protective effects of chlorophyll on irradiated animals.
There are pure chlorophyll supplements available if you don’t like to eat grass or algae. Better yet, try one of the following whole foods, all which are excellent sources of chlorophyll and other essential nutrients.
Barley (wheat) grass
is a totally balanced food. It contains all of the nutrients required for life; vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other proteins (amino acids), essential fatty acids and chlorophyll. Barley grass has thousands of living enzymes (a special protein). Enzymes are nature’s biological catalysts that initiate all the chemical transformations in the body. Over 3,000 enzymes have been identified. They are required for every transformation in the body – digestion, cell respiration, bodily movements, thinking processes, detoxification, cancer control, fat, protein and carbohydrate metabolism, etc.The normal daily amount of barley grass is 1-3 teaspoons (1 tsp = 2 grams). If you choose wheat grass (juice), start with one ounce daily and gradually increase to four or six ounces.
a green freshwater micro-algae which has even more chlorophyll than barley (wheat) grass plus 55-65% protein with 19 amino acids including all the essential ones. It’s an excellent source of beta-carotene, vitamins B-l, B-2, B-3, B-6, B-12, pantothenic acid, folic acid, biotin, PABA, inositol and vitamin C. Vitamin B-12 is especially important for vegetarians who may be deficient in this vitamin. Chlorella has more B-12 than liver. It also contains important minerals – iron, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, zinc, potassium, sulphur, iodine and trace amounts of manganese, sodium and chlorine.
Chlorella comes in a small pill form which may be more palatable to some people.
Made from naturally fermented soybeans, rice or barley, miso is a superior source of usable whole protein, aids digestion and assimilation, is low in fats, has a wonderful salty flavor, promotes health and helps neutralize environmental pollution including radia¬tion. The reason for Miso’s protectiveness is not really known. It was observed that the Japanese who ate miso everyday did not die from radiation-induced cancer after the bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The observed effect of miso as a cancerostatic agent was further confirmed in a recent study in Japan.
Fermented (Lactic acid) vegetables and juices -
Lactic acid fermented foods possess medicinal properties and can in the biological treatment of many conditions, including cancer, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, kidney and liver diseases, and digestive disorders. Sources include sauerkraut, beets, carrots, green and red pepper, beet tops, Swiss chard and celery.
Cultured (fermented) milk products: yogurt, kefir, buttermilk, unprocessed cheese.
Longevity studies indicate that groups of people who use cultured milk products in their diet live longer. Real yogurt is made from fresh whole (un-homogenized) milk with billions of living friendly bacteria, a minimum of honey or fructose, and perhaps some real fruit.Yogurt, kefir and other fermented milks contain an unidentified substance that lowers cholesterol. Yogurt is an excellent substitute for ice cream in milk shakes and smoothies. Use it on potatoes instead of sour cream. Make your own salad dressings with yogurt, honey, vinegar and spices.
These products also contain friendly bacteria, such as lactobacillus acidophilus and other strains perform valuable duties in your colon. These bacteria colonize the colon and evict unfriendly, dangerous bacteria and other organ-isms from your colon. These bacteria also synthesize germ-destroying antibodies in your colon.
Cruciferous vegetables (cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, turnips, cabbage, spinach, cauliflower, and greens such as kale)
This family of vegetables contain substances that inhibit breast and colon cancer cell growth. Cabbage and other cruciferous vegetables also contain dithiolthiones, a non-toxic group of compounds that have antioxidant, anti-cancer and anti-radiation properties.
Sources include dark, leafy vegetables (broccoli, spinach, kale, Swiss chard, romaine, endive, chicory, escarole, watercress, collard, mustard and dandelion greens), dark yellow and orange vegetables (carrots, sweet potatoes, yams, pumpkins, winter squash) and fruits (cantaloupe, apricots, peaches, papayas and watermelon).
High-fiber foods: whole grains, fruits and vegetables
Epidemiological data suggests that a high-fiber diet protects against large bowel cancer perhaps for several reasons. It dilutes bowel carcinogens, decreases colon transit time and changes the composition and metabolic activity of the fecal flora and certain carcinogenic substances in the colon. That’s why it’s healthier to eat whole grains containing the bran and the fiber, and whole fruits and vegetables instead of their processed, partitioned counterparts.
Foods containing a natural Vitamin A
Such as lima beans, potatoes, yams, sweet potatoes, asparagus, tomatoes, onions and spinach), fruits (mango, grapes, avocado, pears, oranges plus the white under the peel and pulps, apples plus seeds and peeling, strawberries), all unsprouted seeds (especially sunflower, sesame and pumpkin), all nuts (especially almonds and cashews), leafy green vegetables, carob and teas from fruit blossoms and leaves (peach flowers, strawberry leaves, cherry flowers, apple blossoms), and all grasses, such as wheat and barley.
The vitamin A analog, abscisic acid, is found in large amounts in the grasses, seeds, nuts, legumes, mature leaves, and fruits listed above and in the apricot pit. The body makes abscisic acid in vivo (inside) from raw carrot juice and raw liver.
Sesame seeds – raw, ground (tahini) or in capsules.
Sesame seed oil contains a substance called Complex T, the primary effect of which is to increase blood platelets – a must for fighting infection.
If you don’t like pills, just eat raw sesame seeds or tahini. In addition to Complex T, sesame seeds contain valuable essential fatty acids (EFAs) that are important workers in the immune system.
Sea vegetables and their products
Sodium alginate, a non-nutritious extract from Pacific kelp used to bind and detoxify heavy metals from the body (such as lead, mercury, cadmium, etc.), and agar, used as a thickening agent instead of gelatin or corn starch, will protect the human body from radiation effects. They also reduce absorption of strontium 90 by 50-80%.
Kelp and Chlorella
Sodium alginate (Alginic acid) is found in kelp, bladderwrack and fertilizer seaweed. Their consumption allowed many Japanese atomic bomb victims to survive since Sodium alginate binds with radioactive strontium. If this is accurate, kelp with its Iodine content may be doubly beneficial in the current circumstances.
Eating members of the kelp family, including kombu, sea palm, wakame, is a very, very good idea, but it must not come from the Pacific AFTER this radiation accident! Chlorella is said to have a radioprotective effect because it is held to absorb gamma rays emitted from the radioactive particles in your body following contamination. A chlorophyll rich diet increases the survival of experimental animals after lethal doses of radiation and chlorella has the highest chloryophyll diet of any plant known.Kelp and dulse, excellent natural sources of iodine, help protect against radioactive iodine, found mostly in milk. When the diet is adequately supplied with organic iodine (as in kelp), radioiodine is not as readily absorbed by the thyroid or the ovaries. Kelp contains 150,000 mcg of iodine per 100 grams (32 ounces). The RDA of iodine is 150-200 mcg. A reasonable daily dose of kelp would be 1-2 teaspoons of granules or 5-10 tablets. Other high iodine foods include: seafood, beef liver, pineapple, eggs and whole wheat.Note: Taking kelp as a source of iodine is much safer than drinking iodine or eating potassium iodide, which can be especially dangerous for pregnant women and can cause allergic reactions. Iodine (inorganic) is toxic because of its tendency to combine with protein. That’s how it destroys bacteria (a protein). When you put iodine into your mouth, it combines with the protein there and in your stomach or wherever it goes. This causes irritation or worse. Also, sudden large doses of iodine in humans with a normal thyroid may reduce the synthesis of thyroid hormone.
Bee and flower pollen
Pollen is an excellent food containing all essential amino acids, vitamins A, D, E, K, C, bioflavonoids, B-complex (especially pantothenic acid and B-3), and 27 minerals.Research has proven pollen to be beneficial in treating several diseases. Dr. Emil Chauvin (French Academy of Science) discovered bee pollen was beneficial in treating anemia (increases red blood cells and hemoglobin), chronic prostatis, and constipation, flatulence and colon infections, especially diarrhea.
Dr. Peter Hernuss at the University of Vienna’s Women’s Clinic conducted a study involving 25 women with inoperative uterine cancer. All received radiotherapy. The 15 who took 20 grams of bee pollen three times a day tolerated the radiation much better than the ten who took no bee pollen.
Essential fatty acids, GLA and EPA
EFAs are essential for proper functioning of the immune system and protects against cancer. Food sources include flax seed oil, evening primrose oil and certain fish, particularly salmon.
5 grams of spirulina powder per day is said to be protective against radiation sickness, according to the clinical experiences of doctors in Russia following Chernobyl. In fact, Russian health authorities declared that spirulina accelerates the evacuation of radionuclides from the human body. Spirulina contains large amounts of beta carotene, a compound which prevents free radical damage to cells and is useful in treating and preventing cancer, and free iron, which helps people recover from the anemia which leads to a great many of the radiation-related problems following exposure.
Ralph Fucetola JD: a note just in from Dr. Elizabeth Martin: “I do remember reading a book about people in Hiroshima after the aotmic bomb attack there (I suppose it was the same in Nagasaki), being helped by eating miso and seaweed. Many people lived through that nightmare who I would have thought couldn’t survive, Some are still living.”
Spirullina also contains high proportions of metallo-thionine compounds which combine with radioactive metals so they can be eliminated, another protective effect of the super algae.
Avoid Zeolyte Compounds
Per Rima Laibow, MD: I do not recommend zeolyte compounds because while they may trap heavy metals, they often include aluminum compounds and it makes no sense to introduce a known toxin into the body to remove other toxins. I know this puts me at odds with those who swear by their zeolyte products, but since there are other ways to accomplish the same goals, I cannot see why we should put them in our bodies. After all, we rage about aluminum in vaccines and aluminum in chemtrails.
