Radiation Poisoning: What You Need to Know
Radiation Poisoning: A Modern-Day Threat
In 2011, a catastrophic event occurred in Japan when nuclear power plant, Fukushima Daiichi became a nuclear disaster. While morning and evening news coverage of the disaster has dwindled over the last couple of years, it is important that we remain aware of the dangers of nuclear radiation poisoning that are still very real. In fact, just one simple Google search for the word “Fukushima” reveals a world of information relating to this radiation crisis — very current articles and research detailing the concerns we all face.
At this time, we must bring our awareness to the fact that it is possible we are exposed to radioactive particles that have traveled by air and sea. According to Atlanta Progressive News “In August 2013, Shunichi Tanaka, head of Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority, admitted to reporters that at least 300 tons of radioactive water have probably been leaking into the Pacific Ocean every day since at least July 2013…” Furthermore, the article states that unusually high levels of radiation has been detected in air and water in at least thirteen US states. While many organizations still do not admit “dangerous levels” of radiation, we must take it upon ourselves to become educated about the disaster and protect ourselves and our families accordingly. Like anything, chronic exposure to a small level of radiation is also toxic. Read more here.
So what to do?
This article from Natural News details some of the best methods and supplements for protecting yourself against radiation poisoning. Dr. Saputo also has important recommendations for foods and supplements to assist the body in natural detox. Chlorella is an important component, as it will bind to toxic compounds in the gut to be carried out in elimination.
Another key detoxifier is iodine, and Premier’s main whole food iodine is Xenostat. Other basic steps recommended by Premier include taking your minerals and keeping your pH alkaline If you believe you have been significantly affected by the radiation fallout, consider Premier Zeolite Complex (formerly Gama Detox) (zeolite blended with Medi Clay), as it is probably the most potent but also needs to be done in lower doses. It is important in this case to be certain you are eliminating well and moving the lymph in some way.
It is important to note that Premier is continually testing their products to ensure the raw materials they use are not affected by this or by other concerns. The quality of the materials is truly what makes Premier one of our most popular brands.
