Dr. Theresa Dale PhD, CCN, NP, of the Wellness Center for Research and Education issued a statement addressing the rising concerns about the after effects of the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan. Has radiation gotten into the water supply? What about the food chain? And if the radiation was carried over on the wind what can be done to decontaminate ourselves?
The Bad News
According to Dr. Dale, unless the Japanese government entombs the entire Fukushima Plant, it will continue spewing into the environment, land, sea and air. The threat of radiation contamination to foods and supplies is prompting us to reconsider our lifestyle, diet and choice of supplementation support. This is something similar to the words that Dr Brian Clements of The Hippocrates Health Institute said to us when we met him as he visited London earlier this year. Dr Clements specifically said that we should consider all fish as contaminated. This was further backed up in April when Dr Udo Erasmus PhD, one of the leading experts on Omega oils, visited the UK. Dr Erasmus confirmed for us that there is no such thing as safe fish oils; Omega oils should come from vegetable nutrition.
The Good News
Dr Dale advocates proactive action against the negative effects of radiation, something I know many other health thought leaders support. Dr Dale has created her own radiation detoxification protocol drawing on experiences from the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Some of the key elements involves the use of seaweeds as the iodine in them helps prevent radiation lodging in the body. In addition there are some supplements known to be of use including chlorella and spirulina algaes. These algaes are known for their detoxifying benefits which may include drawing heavy metals and dioxins from the body. Dr Dale includes these together with Vitamin D3 and multi-minerals as part of her protocol. This is also similar to Robert Redfern‘s recent Serranol formulation, which combines an algae seaweed with serrapeptase enzymes, vitamin D3 and circumin. It’s often the case that elements work synergistically together as the body needs numerous vital elements to function optimally.
The important take home from all this is not that there are ways of helping yourself if you were exposed to radiation. The catch is that you need to take action. Contaminants from Fukushima have been carried around the world on the air and in the sea and radiation doesn’t go away quickly. It’s here for years to come as we can tell by looking at Chernobyl 25 years on. If we are to go on some figures (see page 11 onwards), up to 6 million have died as a result of cancers they may not have suffered had Chernobyl not happened. Here’s a short extract from that official Greenpeace report:
Thyroid cancer increased dramatically in all three countries, as expected because of the release of large quantities of radioactive iodine from the Chernobyl catastrophe. For example, incidence in the highly contaminated Bryansk region in the period 1988-1998 was double that for Russia as a whole, and triple that figure by 2004. Estimates in excess possibly of 60,000 additional cases have been predicted for Ukraine, Belarus and the Russian Federation alone.
Children who were 0-4 years old at the time of exposure were particularly vulnerable to this cancer. Before the accident, occurrence of thyroid cancer among children and adolescents averaged 0.09 cases per 100,000. After 1990, the frequency of occurrence rose to 0.57-0.63 per 100,000. The peak of thyroid cancer morbidity among those who were children and teenagers at the moment of the catastrophe was predicted to occur in the period 2001-2006. The cancer of the thyroid gland caused by Chernobyl appeared to be unusually aggressive, with early and rapid progression to form secondary tumours in the lymph glands and lungs, which worsened the prognosis and frequently demanded multiple surgical interventions to address.
Given the particularly long latency periods, which can be associated with thyroid cancer, new Chernobyl-induced cases may be expected to emerge for decades to come. Long-term monitoring of ‘at-risk’ populations, including those which received relatively low doses, will be essential to allow timely and effective medical intervention.
Research shows that the effects of a radioactive disaster takes years to show themselves fully. Radiation builds up in living organisms and in those which do not rid themselves of it fast enough, cancer may be the outcome.
Now is the time to adapt your life choices. Let’s take simple and easy steps to increase our standards of health. Avoid eating seafish and shellfish as these are an easy way for contamination to get into you. Take regular detoxification protocols and supplement with Chlorella and Spirulina to escort toxins out. Use formulas which include seaweed, like Serranol, or buy a seaweed condiment you can use on your food instead of salt. Keep working to improve your health. It’s not for today that you’re doing this so don’t worry about changing your world overnight, just keep going forwards!
