Potassium iodide is the only remedy that is mentioned by other sources for protection against radiation, but it will only partially protect the thyroid and the female reproductive organs. While its usage may be a good idea for especially vulnerable people, it is important to remember that the rest of the body will still be completely unprotected.
If potassium iodide is unavailable, applying a patch of regular iodine (not the povidone type) to the skin, and allowing it to absorb transdermally is a good option. You can also purchase potassium in grocery stores as a salt substitute. Only a small amount of potassium is needed.
We are warning readers to not consume any underwater vegetation (e.g. seaweed) to obtain iodine, because of the significant risks of heavy metal contamination, pollutants, and bacterial toxins. Likewise, drinking iodine is a foolish endeavor that will generally hurt the body much more than it helps. Iodine is a completely different substance from the recommended potassium iodide.
In the 1950's and 1960's, experiments were done, particularly by the United States Army, showing that the consumption of broccoli and other dark green vegetables protects a body from radiation damage to a surprising degree. This led to further research into the most common factor of such vegetation: chlorophyll.
Chlorophyll (the green pigment of plants) has a tendency to cleanse the body of many toxins, including aflotoxin, benzo[a]pyrene, and dioxins, all of which are known carcinogens. It is worth noting that radiation exposure produces benzene compounds, such as benzo[a]pyrene, within humans. Chlorophyll is also able to directly shield a body from radiation damage, which has been demonstrated in multiple studies. Given the U.S. Military's refinement of atomic weapons, there is not a more credible source than the aforementioned military studies. Military studies which used conventional cabbages and broccoli as a small chlorophyll source enabled test subjects to show dramatic recoveries from radiation poisoning, so concentrated liquid chlorophyll, like that which is available at most health food stores, should be expected to yield impressive results.
Linus Pauling and his colleagues at the Linus Pauling Institute demonstrated that vitamin C taken after medical radiation reduced patients' radiation sicknesses, and subsequent cellular damage. It is recommended that, at a maximum, 3 grams (3,000 mg.) of vitamin C be taken daily to suppress radiation sickness.
Apple pectin is a food-based supplement that removes radioactive particles from the body. It was used following the Chernobyl nuclear disaster with stunning results. The dosage was 800 mg. for every 100 pounds of body weight.
We also recommend that people take flax seed oil. It is most effective when it is combined with something containing a sulfur protein. This mixture is a core component of the anti-cancer Budwig protocol.
