Radiation Free Diet
Japan Nuclear Disaster: Tips For Survival
This is written mainly for New Zealanders at risk from radiation poisoning, however, many of these tips for survival should be helpful for people in other parts of the world too.
1) Use Only Unpolluted Water.
Don’t drink the tap water. Before arriving at your place, this water sits around day after day in large dams which are exposed to the air, and therefore, to the radioactive particles in the air. It is also treated with chlorine and fluoride, and therein lies another story.
The Fukushima Nuclear Disaster has made all our dam water polluted. Get bottled water which comes from a reliable source. If you have tap water which was taken before the nuclear disaster, then start using this right away. This is the emergency NOW- the nuclear disaster of Fukushima, Japan. Don’t hang on to your clean water for some other disaster. You need to protect your health right away from the effects of the radiation in the air, and one way to do this is by being careful with your food and your water.
If you can, go to a water bore which is relatively uncontaminated. Bottle as much of this as you can. Bottled water should be kept in glass bottles, or plastic bottles which have held fruit juice. Do not use milk bottles for your bottled water, as this will make your precious water go rancid.
Otherwise, unless you are lucky enough to have a full water tank which has uncontaminated water in it, you will be best to buy bottled water rather than use tap water.
2) Grow Your Greens Indoors. Eliminate all possible contaminated food. This means avoiding buying leafy greens such as lettuce, cabbage, cauliflower, spinach and silver beet. And avoid taking these things from your garden too. The danger is HERE. Ensure that you eat food which is not contaminated with radioactive fallout.
Mung Bean Sprouts, or Aduki Beans, are the ideal survival food, because you can grow them with your clean water, on your window sill, out of the reach of the radiation outside. Get a good supply in right away to ensure that your source dates from before the nuclear disaster.
3) Brown Rice, or White Rice: With your clean water, you can cook rice which is free of the radioactive particles. Buy up a good supply now, while you can still get rice which was packed before the nuclear disaster. With your fresh green mung bean sprouts, your rice, and a bit of olive oil, you can survive quite well for a long time. You can add other foods to the diet too, but these three things should form the basis of your radiation free diet.
4) Get in supplies of Sunflower Seeds, Almonds, and Sesame Seeds to use as a milk substitute, and to supply extra protein, vitamins, and fatty acids to your diet.
5) AVOID DRINKING MILK AND AVOID ALL DAIRY PRODUCTS SUCH AS CHEESE, YOGHURT, BUTTER, AND ANIMAL FOODS. These are very high in radiation. Cows eat acres of grass to produce that milk for your table, and the butter and cheese for your bread. The grass has radioactive fallout on it, which means that the cow absorbs masses of radiation as it chomps its way across a paddock. This radiation gets concentrated in the milk. So this must be avoided at all costs. Soy Milk should be used instead of cow’s milk, or another animal’s milk.
6) Vegetarian Diet: You really need to stick to a vegetarian diet of foods which were packed before the nuclear disaster at Fukushima. Sesame seeds are extremely rich in calcium and fatty acids: Apparently, one handful of sesame seeds supplies more than the adequate amount of calcium for the day.
Sesame Seed Milk: Sesame Seeds are best blended up into a milk, so that you derive the maximum benefit. Dry grind the sesame seeds in the blender first, using only about 3/4 cupful of seeds. Then add your UNPOLLUTED WATER which is radiation free, to make a healthy milk.
Sunflower Seed Milk, and Almond Milk, or a mixture of any of these, can be made in the same way.
Soy Milk is another good substitute for dairy milk, especially if it was packed before 11 March 2011.
7) Avoid Eating Meat: Meat would be OK if you are sure that the animal has not been killed since the nuclear disaster. Otherwise, all animals grazing out in the open will be absorbing large amounts of radiation into their flesh. You will absorb these radioactive poisons if you eat contaminated animal foods.
8) Avoid Eggs for the same reason.
9) Buy up supplies now, so that you can prevent buying in contaminated food. Also, the situation may not improve for a while, and the level of toxicity could get worse. You need to be prepared for this.
Any food packaged before the Japanese earthquake/tsunami disaster will be safe from the effects of Fukushima, unless you are buying it from shops in that area.
Good things to stock up on are:
Water, of course;
Tinned Vegetables of all sorts
Almonds, Sunflower seeds, Sesame Seeds, Cashews, Hazelnuts, Walnuts etc.
Tinned Fish – All fish will be at risk from now on. Buy up as much as you can afford of fish packaged before the 11 March Japanese tsunami/quake/nuclear disaster: sardines, mackerel, tuna, salmon are all good.
Unfortunately, fish and seaweed such as kelp and spirulina will be very dodgy foods to buy from now on, unless you are sure that they were processed before the Japanese nuclear disaster.
10) Root vegetables will generally be safe foods to eat at the moment. Radiation fallout will be mainly affecting vegetables grown on the top of the soil. So root veges such as carrots, potatoes, kumara or sweet potato, swedes, turnips, beetroot, yams, etc, will all be good to eat. I would avoid eating these vegetables, though, if they were harvested anywhere within 200 kilometres from Fukushima, as even in the harvesting, contamination could occur from the radioactive fallout on the top soil.
The same goes for pumpkins – I think that in New Zealand, pumpkins are still a safe food: Radiation levels are still comparatively small here, and so you will be safe enough, by the time you peel the outer hard shell from the pumpkin, to eat the inside. Again, I would not eat a pumpkin which was grown within 200 kilometres of Fukushima.
Liquid Iodine, Kelp and Spirulina
Just a drop of Iodine painted onto the soles of the feet, or the scalp once or twice a week, will increase your body levels of Iodine.
You need Iodine to ensure that your body does not absorb the radioactive iodine from the air instead. If your Iodine levels are low, then you will absorb radioactive Iodine from the Fukushima fallout. Cancer, following the release of radioactive material into the atmosphere, is more likely to develop in iodine deficient individuals.
Buy some of these things now to ensure that they are radiation free. Kelp and Spirulina are likely to be contaminated from now on. You can never tell where these foods come from, but actually, all foods from the sea will be polluted to some degree after the nuclear disaster at Fukushima. This is pretty certain, since we now know that 60,000 tonnes of radioactive waste from Fukushima is being dumped into the Pacific Ocean by the Japanese.
Vitamin C is Essential. Stock up on Calcium Ascorbate, or Ester C. These are non-acidic and are easy on the tum. Uncontaminated fresh food may be hard to get, so Vitamin C could be necessary to protect immunity and prevent scurvy.
Vitamin C protects against radiation to a certain extent. If you think you are affected by radiation, then a dose of 1000mg of calcium ascorbate, taken once or twice a day could be helpful. I would take more if exposure to radiation was extreme.
Chlorophyll Helps Protect Against Radiation. You can grow your own wheat to make wheat grass juice. This is a famous cure for cancer, used by Dr Gerson, Dr Ann Wigmore, Walter Last, and many others.
Wheat grass juice helps to neutralize radiation poisons to some extent.
