How to Protect Your Family from Nuclear Radiation

Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant disaster earlier this year brought it to the attention of Americans, however briefly, that nuclear plant accidents -- even half a world away -- can bring the threat of radioactive fallout right to their doorstep. In the wake of  that incident, supplies of potassium iodide evaporated as quickly as grocery shelves before a hurricane.

This invites the question: why take potassium iodide for protection from radiation? Joseph Mercola, M.D. provides the answer in an article about Japan's radiation problem:

Many people are relatively deficient in iodine, and because of this they will readily absorb iodine from the environment. Your body is unable to recognize the difference between regular iodine and radioactive iodine. It will absorb them equally well. So if you are deficient in iodine and a radioactive cloud passes by, your body will tend to suck that radioactive iodine into your thyroid gland to fill up its iodine stores
In an ideal situation you will have been taking adequate amounts of iodine from safe sources which will not only protect you from radioactive iodine but from environmental toxins that can poison your thyroid gland like fluoride, bromine and chlorine.
If you have not been taking iodine and a radioactive cloud comes near your area then it would make sense to take large doses of prophylactic iodine to prevent your thyroid gland from absorbing the radioactive iodine. However it is important to understand that the large dose of potassium iodide only protects your thyroid for one to three days, no longer and it does absolutely nothing to protect you from detoxifying the radiation.

Of course, the best solution would be to make sure you & your family do not walk around deficient in iodine.

In the next installment, I will provide easy, practical & effective steps you can take to protect yourself & your household from the threat of radiation. (Does not involve lead-lined underwear, I promise.)
