Dear NaturalNews readers,
Thyroid support formulas are suddenly in high demand again at the Natural News Store due to concerns about Fukushima. See a map of trade winds showing Fukushima radiation fallout at:
So I wanted to offer some tips and strategies for protecting yourself against ionizing radiation as well as discussing the strengths and weaknesses of iodine products so that you can make a more informed decision.
As I hope everyone knows by now, radioactive isotopes of iodine, which are produced by nuclear accidents, are naturally concentrated by the body in the thyroid gland, which also strongly influences your metabolism and body weight. If enough radioactive elements are concentrated there, your thyroid gland can be "burned out" (irradiated to the point of permanent damage), often requiring the surgical removal or deliberate irradiation of the gland followed by a lifetime of synthetic thyroid hormone medication to make up the difference.
See this important radiation reference chart at:
(Source is unknown but info is accurate)
The intake of iodine immediately before or even during exposure to radioactive isotopes of iodine "fills" your thyroid with non-radioactive iodine, preventing the concentration of radioactive isotopes in that gland. This is why the U.S. government actually hands out Potassium Iodide pills to residents living near nuclear facilities. So-called "KI pills" are the first line of defense against ionizing radiation damaging your thyroid gland.
We offer them in our "radiation response" category at:
Natural supplements can also accomplish the same thing as KI pills. That's why so-called "Nascent Atomic Iodine" supplements are being increasingly used by people for the same purpose*:
"Thyadine" is also another popular supplement used for this purpose:
Strengthening your thyroid both during and after exposure is also an important strategy for supporting overall thyroid health, and that comes from food concentrates like Megafood's "Thyroid Strength" formula (which also contains both iodine and selenium):
Keep in mind that radioactive iodine will also concentrate itself in other tissues where iodine receptors are common, including breast tissue and prostate tissue. So in a nuclear accident event, it's much more than just your thyroid that is at risk. Radioactive iodine isotopes can also cause breast cancer and prostate cancer, as was clearly seen in the years following the atomic bomb attacks on Japan in World War II.
The trace mineral selenium is also used by many people to help support a natural modulation of ionizing radiation*. There is a wealth of scientific literature on selenium and radiation available at SCIENCE.naturalnews.com:
Also see studies on iodine and radiation here:
Personally, I like selenium mostly to support healthy brain function*, but people take it for lots of different reasons:

Please be sure to work with a qualified naturopathic physician if you have any concerns about health and radiation.
OTHER RADIATION HEALTH THREATS
Keep in mind that ionizing radiation is most dangerous when it is inhaled, usually lodging in the lung tissue. This is why people living downstream from Fukushima need to take special precautions to avoid inhaling radioactive dust particles.
Also note that iodine does not offer any special protection for your lungs against the inhalation of radioactive particles. Your best protection against this is a respiratory such as the MSA Safety Works Paint and Particle Respirator that you can find at Amazon.com:
This is my favorite half-face respirator, and it will filter out nearly all radioactive dust particles.
Too often, people take iodine or KI pills and think they are then "bulletproof" against radiation, but that's a dangerous misconception. Iodine's protective effects are very targeted and quite limited. The very best protection against radiation is to AVOID EXPOSURE in the first place, even if that means physically relocating to remove yourself from the path of radioactive particles being spewed into the environment.
P.S. Thank you for your support and your business. It's because of people like you that we are able to continue our mission of consumer activism and spreading the word about nutritional therapies that really work. Natural News is a rare beacon of truth in a world full of misinformation about health, and we depend on your support to continue pursuing our mission every single day. :-)
Thank you for your support,
- Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
