Cancer rates go up with increasing levels of radiation and heavy metal contamination. Though Natural Allopathic Medicine has a full protocol for radiation contamination, and its cellular consequences, this essay focuses in on the use of hydrogen and iodine to diminish the dangers of ionized radiation. Most people, including doctors, ignore the dangers of the radiation used in medicine as well as the increasing radiation pouring into the environment from the devastating nuclear disaster at Fukushima, which only gets worse with time.
The point of this essay is to understand the danger and to institute the supplementation of nutrients that will protect our children from radiation. According to a 2013 study by the Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center in Norway, the oceanic radiation plume released by Fukushima is likely to hit the North American West Coast in force in 2017, with levels peaking in 2018. Most of the radioactive material from the disaster is likely to stay concentrated on the western coast through at least 2026.
However, this is not a future problem. According to professor Michio Aoyama of Japan’s Fukushima University Institute of Environmental Radioactivity, the amount of radiation from Fukushima that has now reached North America is probably nearly as much as was spread over Japan during the initial disaster.
New results from a study coordinated by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the cancer agency of the World Health Organization, show that protracted exposure to low doses of ionizing radiation increases the risk of death from solid cancers. This has been known for decades but has been disputed over and over again so governments and the nuclear industry can continue the insanity of poisoning the world with cancer causing nuclear radiation. The philosophy and practice of denial are in full operation on nuclear radiation.
Published in The British Medical Journal, findings based on the most powerful study to date provide direct evidence about cancer risks after protracted exposures to low-dose ionizing radiation. “The present study demonstrates a significant association between increasing radiation dose and risk of all solid cancers,” says IARC researcher Dr. Ausrele Kesminiene, a study co-author. “No matter whether people are exposed to protracted low doses or to high and acute doses, the observed association between dose and solid cancer risk is similar per unit of radiation dose.” I have published many times the words of Dr. Boyd Haley who said, “It is the inability to see the effects of chronic, low-level toxicities on human health that has been, and remains, our greatest failing as intelligent beings.”
People who do not pay attention to the increasing levels of radiation from increased medical use of radiation and from Fukushima, which is threatening the entire world with eventual extinction of all life, are not interested in living as long as they could. One can do many things for one’s family in terms of protecting from the free radical damage that radiation exposure causes. One should not be listening to government scientists who still insist that increasing radiation will not hurt you. Radiation contamination leads to radiation sickness and that is a present and real danger, especially to those who live in the northern hemisphere.
Fukushima has spewed much more radioactive cesium and iodine than Chernobyl. The amount of radioactive cesium released by Fukushima was some 20-30 times higher than initially admitted. Japanese experts say that Fukushima is currently releasing up to 93 billion becquerels of radioactive cesium into the ocean each day. And the cesium levels hitting the west coast of North America will keep increasing for several years … rising to some 80% as much Fukushima radiation as Japan by 2016. Fukushima is spewing more and more radiation into the environment, and the amount of radioactive fuel at Fukushima dwarfs Chernobyl.
What is happening at Fukushima Today
The robots sent in to find highly radioactive fuel at Fukushima’s nuclear reactors have “died”; a subterranean "ice wall" around the crippled plant meant to stop groundwater from becoming contaminated has yet to be finished. In addition, authorities still do not know how to dispose of highly radioactive water stored in an ever-mounting number of tanks around the site. Today, the radiation at the Fukushima plant is still so powerful it has proven impossible to get into its bowels to find and remove the extremely dangerous blobs of melted fuel rods.
The fuel rods melted through their containment vessels in the reactors, and no one knows exactly where they are now. This part of the plant is so dangerous to humans that TEPCO has been developing robots, which can swim under water and negotiate obstacles in damaged tunnels and piping to search for the melted fuel rods. However, as soon as they get close to the reactors, the radiation destroys their wiring and renders them useless.
What Treats Radiation Exposure Treats Cancer
What treats cancer usually treats or prevents radiation damages because the effects of radiation directly causes cancer. Exposure to radiation causes a cascade of free radicals that wreak havoc on the body. Radiation decimates the body’s supply of glutathione, which allows free radicals to run rampant through our body’s tissues and organs. Though there might be some kind of hormesis effect with an uptick of glutathione body defenses, it is vital to understand that glutathione levels cannot be sustained without all the precursors being supplied—namely selenium, magnesium and sulfur.
An important part of my work since Fukushima has been to put together the strongest protocol for radiation and heavy metal exposure. Both radioactive particles and heavy metals have the same or similar chemical toxicities. Magnesium, sulfur, sodium bicarbonate and iodine, not to mention medical marijuana, selenium and clay are the main medicinals in my protocol and now the newest addition is hydrogen, which we find is ideal in protecting the body from oxidative stress caused by vast increases of free radicals caused by increasing levels of radiation.
Dr. Ernest J. Sternglass, professor emeritus of radiation physics at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, in his book, Secret Fallout—Low-Level Radiation From Hiroshima To Three-Mile Island, indicated that the risk increased with each additional exposure, as the studies of Alice Stewart indicated it did. This clearly implied that there was no significant healing of the damage and thus that the cancer-causing effects of radiation were cumulative.
What people need is a protocol that is easy to follow, even easy for children. Two of the most basic universal medicinals (good to take for many reasons even if there were not living in an increasingly radioactive world) are hydrogen and iodine, which I have always used instead of antibiotics for my children. Iodine is preventive against infections of all types and in high dosages treats infections better than antibiotics.
Hydrogen – Perfect Medical Gas
“It has been demonstrated that hydrogen can selectively reduce hydroxyl and peroxynitrite in vitro. Since most of the ionizing radiation-induced cellular damage is caused by hydroxyl radicals, this study was designed to test the hypothesis that hydrogen may be an effective radioprotective agent. This paper demonstrates that treating cells with hydrogen before irradiation could significantly inhibit ionizing irradiation (IR)-induced Human Lymphocyte AHH-1 cells apoptosis and increase cells viability in vitro. This paper also shows that hydrogen can protect gastrointestinal endothelia from radiation-induced injury, decrease plasma malondialdehyde (MDA) intestinal 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine (8-OHDG) levels and increase plasma endogenous antioxidants in vivo. It is suggested that hydrogen has a potential as an effective and safe radioprotective agent.
Molecular hydrogen (H2) has been shown in recent studies to have potential as a safe and effective radio-protective agent through scavenging free radicals.  Approximately 65% of the DNA damage is caused by the in direct effect of free radicals, such ashydroxyl radicals (∑OH), that are formed from the radiolysis of surrounding water molecules and that successively attack DNA.
Hydroxyl radicals play an important role in ionizing radiation-induced cellular damage, while hydrogen can transform hydroxyl radicals into water. Scientists have found that, “compared to cells pretreated without hydrogen, cells with hydrogen-rich water administered before irradiation significantly inhibited IR-induced apoptosis, increased viability of human intestinal crypt cells, significantly increase endogenous antioxidant, and decrease malondialdehyde and 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine concentrations of human lymphocyte AHH-1 cells.”
Other scientists found that hydrogen protects mice from radiation induced thymic lymphoma in BALB/c mice. Hydrogen was able to slow the rate of thymic lymphomas as well as prolong the latency period by reducing ROS, which is the main factor in inducing cancers. The Molecular Hydrogen Foundation lists other research indicating how hydrogen protects the skin and body from ionized radiation.
Use of Iodine for Cancer and Radiation
Dr. David Brownstein writes, “If there is enough inorganic, non-radioactive iodine in our bodies, the radioactive fallout has nowhere to bind in our bodies. It will pass through us, leaving our bodies unharmed. It is important to ensure that we have adequate iodine levels BEFORE this fallout hits.”
Brownstein also says, “The chance of a woman having invasive breast cancer sometime during her life is now one in seven. The single most important nutrient to halt this progression is iodine. Inadequate breast iodine levels have been associated with the development of breast cancer in both animals and humans, while iodine supplementation has been shown to cause cancer cells to shift into apoptosis or programmed cell death. I have no doubt one of the reasons we are seeing such an epidemic of breast cancer is due to iodine deficiency.” Brownstein has tested almost five thousand of his patients in his practice, and found the vast majority, over 95 percent, to be deficient in this essential mineral.
These are the two iodine products I suggest. The Nascent Iodine is better for iodine sensitive individuals and for children where lower dosages are needed and recommended. Lugol’s is less expensive and better for transdermal applications as well as higher oral dosages. When I take iodine orally, I also drop in a good amount of and exceptionally strong liquid selenium into the glass because even a small amount reduces the chances of dying of cancer by almost fifty percent.
Everyone should know that sodium bicarbonate is the ideal medicinal for controlling radiation exposure and is even appropriate to use in every cancer treatment protocol. The American Army has known for decades that it is effective enough to clear the kidneys of uranium toxicity. If one is unfortunate enough to be near a nuclear accident the first thing one should do for one’s children is throw them in a strong bath of bicarbonate.
Many Japanese survived the horror of the American nuclear attacks using miso. Clay baths and taking clay orally is also an excellent natural remedy as is medical marijuana. In terms of hydrogen there are several options. There is molecular hydrogen, negatively charged hydrogen that easily give up electrons, and a new generation of water machines, which will soon be on the market that produce hydrogen. Older water ionizers also give hydrogen gas but only if their plates are clean so it is best to have a self-cleaning model.
A great crime against humanity is in progress. Governments, the nuclear industry and even the press are working together to deny people the information about the dangers of nuclear power, nuclear medicine and the nuclear disaster at Fukushima. They deny people the information that would motivate them to take defensive action to ensure the health of their families. For the harm that will occur to countless children, they should never be forgiven.
