People have been asking me about iodine and potassium iodide. From what I have researched I trust in sources like Rick Adams, from Natural News. His recommendations come from Dr. Brownstein an expert in the thyroid and iodine levels. And Adams also has much more very important information to consider in these 2 postings.
Iodine protects thyroid and glandular system from radiation damage: Here’s where to get some
“Dr. Brownstein is one of the top experts on iodine. About radiation exposure, he explains: “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.”
What Dr. Brownstein is explaining is that you must get iodine in your body BEFORE being exposed to radiation. And most people are extremely deficient in iodine on a daily basis (http://www.naturalnews.com/023107_i…).
I’ve interviewed Dr. Brownstein about iodine and have recommended his website as well: http://www.drbrownstein.com
There, he talks about the relationship between iodine deficiency and many chronic degenerative diseases — especially thyroid disorders which are often linked to obesity.
But for right now, people are mostly focused on using iodine to protect their bodies from possible radiation exposure, so keep reading…

Dear NaturalNews readers,
Things are getting far worse in Japan. As of this writing, a partial or total nuclear meltdown event seems increasingly likely. Nuclear engineers have essentially surrendered to the laws of physics now at the Fukushima power plant and pulled all the workers off the site. Now it’s just a matter of watching and praying.
This is Japan’s worst nuclear nightmare coming to life. The future of civilization on our planet will be forever altered after this event. Expect massive changes to be set into motion on issues like energy use, fossil fuels, the false promise of “scientific progress,” the destruction of our planet’s environment and other life-and-death issues.
Today we received word from an inside source in Tokyo who told me that the Fukushima nuclear plant is now basically a “dirty bomb” just waiting to go off. Read the full report here:
Meanwhile, online sellers of potassium iodide supplements are now engaged in widespread price gouging and profiteering. Our report by Ethan Huff exposes these highly unethical pricing practices that seek to exploit fear for obscene profits:
As a service to those who are desperate to get sources of iodine before the possibility of a nuclear fallout event (which could strike the U.S. West Coast), I’ve put together an article that highlights natural sources of iodine in foods and superfoods, many of which you should still be able to get at local health food stores if you hurry:
And Dr. Marc Sircus brings us an informative story today on using iodine to prevent damage from radiation exposure: Get the facts you need to know:
We are working around the clock here at NaturalNews right now to find you more sources for iodine. Potassium is easy to get through regular foods (bananas, sweet potatoes, etc.), but iodine is much harder to come by. We’re also working like crazy to bring you up-to-the-minute news about these developments in Japan and how this is going to impact our world.
There are huge issues here that most people have not considered yet. For example, how will Japan rebuild its infrastructure after all this? It will almost certainly start selling off U.S. debt (Treasury notes). This could start a tidal wave of selling off of U.S. debt which would make it impossible for the U.S. to auction off its next round of needed debt to finance the out-of-control debt spending happening under the Obama administration.
Japan’s nuclear meltdown, in other words, could catalyze America’s financial meltdown.
We could quite literally be looking at a financial tsunami that follows the physical tsunami that has wiped out a huge portion of Japan’s infrastructure.
What can you do to protect yourself? We’re scrambling to get you good information on this as quickly as we can. Our “Financial Preparedness” event coming this Sunday has long since been sold out, but we will work to make recordings of the event available next week at a reasonable price for those who want to listen to it. And for the revenue we’re earning on this, by the way, we’ve already pledged $5,000 in donations to Japan, and we are working on ways to coordinate more rescue efforts that may involve nutritional supplements for those in need.
The world needs our collective help right now. If you believe in prayer, I ask that you pray for Japan today, and for the future of life on our planet. If you don’t believe in prayer, then send good luck, good karma or whatever you believe in. This is a defining moment for human civilization. The future of our world rests upon our shoulders at this very instant.
If we cannot prevent our own self destruction, then we have no future on planet Earth. Let us hope and pray that mankind will find the wisdom to live on this world without destroying it in the process. (Is that too much to hope for?)
P.S. Chlorella helps rid the body of radiation *after* exposure. Spirulina has also been used therapeutically in this way following nuclear disasters. You can expect the next high-demand superfood items to include chlorella, spirulina and other cleansing supplements such as zeolites. We are currently stocking up on a massive amount of chlorella supplements in order to meet the expected demand so that we don’t run out this time…

Blessings & Wisdom to All,
Spirulina & Radiation
Spirulina, the main component of BioLumina, is an excellent source of high quality protection in the human body. It is also exceptional for animals and plants. People have used it for thousands of years as a primary food source in many places in the world and in the last 30 years in the US as an incredible source of super nutrition. Spirulina is the only food other than mother’s milk that can sustain the human body!
Spirulina has been extensively tested and used for radiation exposure.. The testing is not just in a laboratory setting but in real world settings. Most notably in recent times during and after the Chernobyl disaster of 1986. With so many people focused on what to do about potential radiation exposure here in the U.S. with the Japanese disaster, it seems appropriate to revisit this information. This article is a brief summary of what was learned from that previous experience.
Chernobyl was a huge disaster which not only affected hundreds of thousands of people, but is still affecting many people as well as the environment. Many years later, millions of people are still living in radioactive areas. In over 11,000 square miles, there is water, food and soil contamination. When the meltdown happened at Chernobyl in the Ukraine, the neighboring state of Belarus received about 70% of the fallout and was heavily affected as a result. Over 160,000 children and 150,000 cleanup workers were exposed to radiation poisoning which produced higher incidences of leukemia, anemia, thyroid disease, various cancers and compromised immune systems.
Due to donations of Spirulina from other countries, much work was done with those most affected including many children. Some of the most significant results were:
* Enhanced immune systems
* Reduced radioactivity
* Regeneration of bone marrow
* Regeneration of the liver
* Increased white blood cell counts
* Reduced urine radioactivity levels
In fact, the radioactivity in children’s urine samples was decreased by 50% in only 20 days! This was achieved with a dose of only 5 grams per day (about a couple of teaspoons). One of the amazing things the researchers found was that the healing effects were occurring even with advanced cases and even when the exposure to radiation was on-going through contaminated food and water. Other findings were that allergic reactions decreased and heavy metals loads in the body were decreased. A 1993 report concluded:
Use of Spirulina decreases radioactive dose load received from food contaminated with radionuclides, Cesium-137 and Strontium-90. Spirulina is favorable for normalizing the adaptive potential of children’s bodies in conditions of long-lived low dose radiation.
Additionally, Spirulina was found to assist in absorption of other nutrients (from other foods) and lessen the damage to kidneys from toxic loads which is important since the kidneys are among the first organs to be affected by radiation. These research findings were impressive enough that a Russian patent was awarded for Spirulina as a medicine to reduce allergic reactions from radiation sickness.
The bottom line on all the research is that we still don’t know all of the answers as to why Spirulina does all of the things it does, we just know that it works! As a caution, Spirulina is a crop, so at different times of the year, the nutritional profile will be quite different. There has also been a big influx of cheap Chinese Spirulina into the US market in the last 10 years. It has been found to contain high amounts of lead and other heavy metals. With everything that’s going on in the world today, it’s wise to have some BioLumina (Spirulina with the highest nutritional profile) in your diet!
