Here is an update from the "Natural News" folks regarding the Iodine situation going on in the U.S. There is some debate on the type of Iodine to be taken in the event of a nuclear emergency...Iodate vs. Iodide. Regardless of which you choose (if you do) both are going to be hard to come by because of the current situation in Japan. So, if you haven't already thought ahead, here is some info that may be useful to know. I really can't say that the events taking place in Japan are events that will dramatically effect those of us in the Midwest or Eastern states but all things considered, it is best to be armed with information so you can make plans that are right for you and your home.
for great ideas about adding iodine naturally to your diet see the "Iodine sea vegetables" article below!!
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:http://www.naturalnews.com/031718_nuclear_power_dirty_bomb.html
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:http://www.naturalnews.com/031716_potassium_iodide_price_gouging.html
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:http://www.naturalnews.com/031717_iodine_sea_vegetables.html
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:http://www.naturalnews.com/031715_iodine_radiation.html
Chlorella helps rid the body of radiation *after* exposure. Spirulina has also been used therapeutically in this way following nuclear disasters.
I hope this is news you can use:)
