Radioactive Iodine (Radiation Sickness)


About
Radiation sickness occurs as a result of exposure to too much radiation. Cancer, mental retardation, cataracts, etc. can occur when a person is exposed to a large amount of radiation. The explosion of a nuclear bomb could spread Radioactive Iodine and cause radiation sickness.


Notes
  • Make sure you are taking supplements for overall good health. If you are not taking these basic supplements, we recommend Enfuz from Vitabase. When you take a small packet of pills each day, you get all the basic nutrition you need. Each packet contains a multi-vitamin, CoQ10 (for heart health), Omega 3, Vitamin D-3, a probiotic, and a powerful set of antioxidants to help your body fight off disease.
  • Radiation is monitored more closely now than in previous years and has been reduced in cancer treatments.
  • A study on rats stated that a rat given orange juice before radiation had less damage than a rat given water before radiation.


Advice
  • Diet should include apples, buckwheat lemons, avocados, and cold-pressed safflower and olive oils.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Limit cell phone usage. Use a radiation filter for your computer screens.
  • Test your home for radon.
  • Do not have x-rays if you are pregnant.
