Simple foods provide protection against radiation exposure
"Sulfur-containing antioxidants found in ... broccoli, kale, cabbage, and garlic have been found to provide protection against radiation exposure through their detoxifying properties.
"Pectin in fruits has also been shown to reduce levels of the radioactive substance Cs-137...
"A study published in Russia ... used concentrates of dietary fiber from lemon peel and beet root among other plants and found that the fiber did have radioprotective properties. The authors concluded that concentrated dietary fiber can be used ... to accelerate the elimination of nuclides or radioactive elements."
"The Swedish Government monitored the radiation level of foods following the Chernobyl disaster. They found that most animal based foods including meat, dairy, and fish had higher levels of radioactive substances than fruits, vegetables, grains, and potatoes."
Various foods may help guard against radiation (ESSENCETIAL LIFE: RADIATION Protection Foods etc / Nuclear Radiation Protection with Nutrition The No Diet Blog)
If your body lacks calcium, potassium and other nutrients, it will more readily absorb the radioactive elements, so eat plenty of the following:
Bananas, sunflower seeds, pumpkins seeds, green leafy veg, black beans, apricots, avocados, brussel sprouts, dates, figs, potatoes, prunes, raisins, tomatoes, mint, dandelion, celery, carrots
Black Strap Molasses, Apple Cider Vinegar
Vitamin B3 (Niacin / Nicotinic Acid)
Seaweeds, shellfish, and butter (contain Iodine)
Green tea, eggs, tumeric, ginger.
AVOID taking too much of any of the above. Taking a lot of beetroot juice, for example, can make your urine turn red!
