Did You Know...
... that there are effective methods for protecting your health against potential exposure to radiation? And no, it's not by loading up on potassium iodide!
Government officials claim radiation from Japanese reactors won't reach our shores because Japan is 5,000 miles away. But that doesn't mean radiation from the nuclear disaster there poses no threat to U.S. citizens, especially those living on the West Coast. According to the New York Times, half the mercury in the atmosphere over the U.S. originates in China -- just as far away as Japan!
Since the 1950s, it's become increasingly clear that there is no safe level of exposure to radiation. Yet we are all constantly exposed to low-level radiation in our everyday lives, especially in urban areas where there are multiple cell towers, wi-fi, wireless routers, cordless telephones, cell phones, radio towers and a myriad of other technologies bombarding our bodies with electromagnetic pollution and radio frequencies that are hazardous to our health.
Dr. Mercola, the New York Times best-selling author and health activist, says, "Even diagnostic scans have been attributed to causing tens of thousands of unnecessary cancers each and every year, so the fear of heavy fallout is understandable." He recommends watching the situation in Japan closely as it unfolds, but cautions that "strategies against radioactive fallout have their own health risks and should not be used willy-nilly."
The most popular and potentially dangerous of these strategies is to take potassium iodide (KI). Many stores in Japan have already sold out of their KI supplies. But unless you live near active radiation fallout, the dangers of taking KI almost certainly outweigh the benefits.
Dr. Leonard Wartofsky, spokesman for the Endocrine Society and an expert on thyroids, says that it is "inappropriate, foolhardy and dangerous to be taking iodide supplements at this time. It's very important to hold off until it's absolutely necessary." That's because taking KI for an extended amount of time can damage your thyroid and even induce hypothyroidism.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) warns that taking a higher dose of KI, or taking KI more often than recommended, does not offer more protection and can cause severe illness or death. Other very common effects of KI are ...
==> Allergic reactions (possibly severe)
==> Intestinal upset
==> Inflammation of the salivary glands
And KI does nothing to help your body detoxify radiation exposure or repair DNA, it only decreases exposure to radioactive iodine.
So What Can You Do to Combat the Effects of
Exposure to Radiation?
One of the most effective ways is to consume foods that supply your body with the co-factors and enzymes that directly repair DNA. Nuclear radiation quickly damages DNA cells -- which then mutate. With enough mutation, fatal diseases develop. DNA damage occurs even without exposure to nuclear fallout, so it's important to make sure you are facilitating the repair of your DNA -- something KI cannot do.
Two excellent options that can detoxify the body and facilitate DNA repair are marine phytoplankton and brown seaweed extract.
Marine phytoplankton is a simple microscopic algae -- which is known to have the strongest and broadest effect on DNA repair. You may never have heard about it, but certain microalgaes like chlorella were used with notable success after the Chernobyl disaster to detoxify victims' bodies of radioactive heavy metals. Unicellular microfoods like marine phytoplankton also help fight radiation by ...

they can function optimally
Of the microalgaes, says Ian Clark, founder of Ocean's Alive, "marine phytoplankton are the optimal choice" for combating nuclear DNA damage because it is ...
==> Contains the full spectrum of amino acids
==> Is most bioavailable
==> Has smallest cell size
One amazing strain of marine phytoplankton in particular named Nannochloropsis Gaditana contains the highest nutritional values for human consumption. It is extremely tiny, 9 times smaller than a red blood cell -- yet, there is so much life energy stored in this single cell.
Brown seaweed extract is another wonderful weapon against the effects of radioactive fallout. After the Chernobyl meltdown, a super concentrated brown seaweed extract called Modifilan was readily deployed to detoxify thousands of victims.
Modifilan was also given to more than 2,000 reserve-drafted men between the ages of 25 to 45 who were assigned the task of re-excavating Chernobyl and changing the sewage system out. The men took 2 tablespoons of Modifilan on a daily basis for about 2 months under doctors' supervision.
The results of the study exceeded all expectations! Not only did Modifilan remove heavy metals from these men's bodies -- it also rehabilitated thyroid gland function and increased energy levels in those who consumed it. Men with pre-existing health conditions -- especially those over the age of 40 -- reported many other powerful and unexpected healing experiences.
The bottom line?
Low-level radiation affects us all. That reality gets lost in the hubbub and panic over high-level radiation threats during tragedies like the meltdown in Japan. But some knee-jerk reactions -- like excessive and unnecessary usage of potassium iodide -- are actually harmful. Better methods, such as taking marine phytoplankton and brown seaweed extract, will not only help to protect you from radioactive materials, but will also improve your overall health.
The company that manufactures Modifilan distributes its brown seaweed extract through a network of medical doctors (MDs), naturopathic doctors (NDs), dieticians, chiropractors, kinesiologists and online distributors such as Poseidon's Harvest. The most bioavailable strain of marine phytoplankton, on the other hand, is available from Ocean's Alive.

FDA Warning: Acid Reflux Drugs Increase Risk
of Bone Fractures
Here's a natural alternative remedy you can use instead.
Can heartburn drugs really cause bone fractures? Yes, they can. This week, U.S. health regulators warned doctors and patients about serious new risks of these common drugs.
| "There is a possible increased risk of fractures of the hip, wrist, and spine if you take certain drugs for heartburn, acid reflux, or ulcers," the FDA warned consumers. |
U.S. and Canadian researchers linked the use of these popular medications -- called PPIs (proton pump inhibitors) -- to fracture risk in middle-aged adults. Another U.S. study says the drugs may also increase risk of infection with C. difficile, a bacterium that can cause severe diarrhea.
The FDA reviewed 7 published studies on the drugs, 6 of which showed an increase risk of bone fractures -- and the agency will now require prescription and over-the-counter labels for these drugs to include new warnings.
What the FDA is not telling the public is that safe, easy, all-natural remedies are already available to those who suffer from acid reflux. These are affordable, everyday remedies based on simple items that most of us have in our pantries right now.
Unlike PPI drugs, natural remedies for acid reflux do not have unacceptable health risks, such as:
| Bone fracture C. difficile Excess production of the hormone gastrin (the substance |
that tells your stomach to make more acid!) Toxin build-up Excessive mineral imbalance that can lead to
hypertension or even Alzheimer's disease
These are just some of the many serious reasons why the millions of Americans who suffer from heartburn and acid reflux need the research-backed information about safe and natural treatments, instead of prescription drugs or over-the-counter antacids!
Natural remedies actually address the problem instead of masking it. Acid reflux starts with a muscle at the top of your stomach, called the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). Normally the LES opens and closes allowing food to enter the stomach, and prevents acid in your stomach from backing up into your esophagus. With acid reflux disease, the LES opens at inappropriate times, allowing acid from the stomach to leak into the esophagus where it doesn't belong.
Left untreated, acid reflux can cause complications -- some serious enough to lead to hospitalization or surgery, or, in rare causes, even death.
Yet, acid reflux may not cause the symptoms you'd expect -- for example, when acid passes quickly through the esophagus and pools in the throat and voice box, it causes prolonged irritation leading to hoarseness, excessive mucus, chronic throat irritation and throat clearing, and constant coughing. As a result, many of the millions of Americans who suffer from acid reflux disease may not know it -- even when their symptoms are classic heartburn.
Too many people mistakenly dismiss their condition and say, "It's just heartburn," regarding it a painful nuisance but nothing to seriously worry about. That could not be further from the truth. The fact is, if you suffer from heartburn twice a week or more, you probably have acid reflux disease that needs treatment to avoid serious complications.
Acid Reflux Complications Regurgitation (especially dangerous at night) Aspiration (acid enters the trachea, causing coughing or
wheezing and worsening chronic lung disease and asthma
-- 70% of asthmatics have acid reflux) Chronic Cough Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (when acid damages the voice box) Esophagitis (inflammation of the lining of the esophagus) Barrett's Esophagus (abnormal developments of the
esophageal lining that predispose the sufferer to esophageal
cancer) Esophageal Strictures or Rings (narrowing of the esophagus) Loss of Tooth Enamel Cancer
These risks can be avoided with simple but potent natural treatments -- researched treatments that work at least 70% of the time. These surprising solutions for acid reflux and the precise way to use them are detailed in a comprehensive, step-by-step kit backed by holistic physicians.
Dr. Scott Sanders, a holistic doctor with more than 10 years of research in the field of nutritional and alternative medicine, says: "There is no hype or pushing a specific type of therapy, just well-researched alternative treatments and some anecdotes. People are different so there are a variety of ways to heal illnesses. This kit takes this into account, giving you many options and providing the information you need to heal yourself and be independent of drugs and 'experts.'" -- Scott Sanders, M.D.

The Surprising Cause of Food Allergies ... Food Sensitivities ... and Other Digestive Problems
Has your doctor told you to stay away from dairy? Do you know why? If he says it's because you're lactose intolerant then you're only getting HALF the story!

Do you find it downright difficult to eat certain foods -- like grains, tomatoes, peanuts, soy or meats -- without unleashing embarrassing gas, bloating, or the runs?
Have you figured out why?
If you think it's because you've got a sensitive stomach ... or you're getting older ... or foods just "don't agree" with you any more ... then you're in for a BOMBSHELL of a surprise, my friend.
