How to Protect Against Nuclear Radiations - Prophylactic Measures Against Radiations -

Japan was hit by one of the largest earthquakes on March 11, 2011.
The Magnitude was 9.0.

This earthquake and the resulting tsunami result in massive destruction and chaos.  Thousands of people are dead and many more are still missing or injured.

An earthquake has damaged the largest nuclear reactor of Japan which is situated in Fukushima.

Radiations have escaped from the reactor and are affecting the health of the people around.

Now people must take protective measures against the radiations. Radiations can affect their body seriously. Thyroid and bone marrow are more vulnerable.

People should follow the following advice.

Þ   They must stay inside their home.
Þ   Cover their face and body.
Þ   Avoid drinking water and any other food present in the contaminated area.
Þ   Young children and fetuses are very vulnerable and must be protected.
Þ   Body must be shielded properly.
Þ   Leave the contaminated area as soon as possible.
Þ   Eat fruits and vegetable are rich in antioxidants.
Þ   Use supplements rich in antioxidants.
Þ   Avoid inhalation of dust particles, use masks.
Þ   Use potassium iodide. KI (potassium iodide) protects the body from the harmful effects of radiations.

If you think that you are at risk of radiations attack, immediately start taking potassium iodide (KI). The younger the person, the more vulnerable that person will be to the effects of radiation contamination, especially in the thyroid gland, which is so important for growth and health

KI is available in pill and liquid form. When I checked today, the usual sources all told me, “It is flying off of the shelves.” I usually get mine at my local natural foods and vitamin supplements stores
If you can not find KI then you can take Iodine supplements and eat bananas that are high in potassium. I prefer the iodine derived from kelp as it is high in other natural ingredients and contains some potassium.
