Radioactive iodine (iodine 131)
Radioactive iodine is a dangerous fallout contaminant, like Strontium 90, but can be even more toxic. It is found mostly in milk; therefore, it is particularly harmful to children who drink lots of milk.
Radioactive iodine is readily absorbed by the body, and it concentrates chiefly in one place – the thyroid gland. When the accumulation is sufficiently large, it causes thyroid cancer.
Kelp. When the diet is amply supplemented with easily-assimilable organic iodine, as in kelp, the radioactive iodine is not absorbed by the thyroid gland.
Dose: 1 to 2 tsp. of granules daily, or 5 to 10 tablets.
X-rays have been used and abused indiscriminately by doctors, hospitals, dentists and chiropractors for decades, ignoring their great potential danger. X-rays are cumulative, so that even small amounts, such as those emitted from a color TV, a wristwatch or an alarm clock, can be dangerous as they add to the total amount received from all sources.
Overexposure can cause leukemia, cancer, birth defects and a later development of leukemia in a
1. Rutin. It strengthens the capillary walls and reduces hemorrhaging caused by x-rays. In animal tests, rutin (vitamin P, or bioflavonoid) reduced the death rate caused by excessive x-rays by 800 percent. Dose: 100 to 200 mg. a day as protective dose. In case of exposure: 800 mg. or more, a day. It is harmless.
2. Vitamin С. Large doses of vitamin С, taken together with rutin, can strengthen the effect of rutin and help to protect against damaging effect of x-rays.
3. Pantothenic acid. It prevents radiation injuries. In animal studies, the survival rate was increased by 200 percent by giving pantothenic acid prior to exposure.
Dose: Preventive – 5 mg. to 15 mg. for children; 25 mg. to 50 mg. for adults. A double or triple dose as a therapeutic after exposure. Brewer’s yeast is by far the best natural source of pantothenic acid.
4. Brewer’s yeast. It has been established that crude yeast extract provides a definite protection against lethal radiation doses.
5. Vitamin F (essential fatty acids), present in all crude, cold-pressed vegetable oils. Provides protection against the harmful effect of x-rays.
6. Inositol (present mostly in lecithin, but also available in tablet form). Prevents damage from X-rays and other radiation exposure.
7. Lemon or lemon peels concentrate. Experiments in several hospitals show that patients can withstand heavier therapeutic radiation without damage to healthy tissues if given lemon compound (undoubtedly because of bioflavonoids which are present in large amounts in lemon and lemon peel).
8. Lecithin, 2-3 tbsp. a day, will help counteract the effects of radiation.
Note: When x-ray treatment or exposure is anticipated, large doses of the above-mentioned vitamins and special supplements will help you to prevent damage from radiation and permit higher doses of radiation with less harm.
