We all remember the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in March 2011 and damaged the Fukushima power plant, causing radiation to leak into the environment. Although it seems like it was so long ago, the health hazards are still real and happening today.
TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Co) finally admitted in July this year that radioactive water has been leaking from the plant since the accident and new studies have also shown that it will likely reach the U.S. coastal waters by the beginning of 2014 and peak in 2016. Radioactive elements have already been detected in the food chain in Japan and radioactive rain has been recorded in California.
“Hazardous radioactive elements being released in the sea and air around Fukushima accumulate at each step of various food chains (for example, into algae, crustaceans, small fish, bigger fish, then humans; or soil, grass, cow’s meat and milk, then humans). Entering the body, these elements – called internal emitters – migrate to specific organs such as the thyroid, liver, bone, and brain, continuously irradiating small volumes of cells with high doses of alpha, beta and/or gamma radiation, and over many years often induce cancer”.

Luckily two ocean currents have diluted the radioactive material and have caused the concentration levels to fall below the World Health Organization’s safety levels.
With radioactive isotopes detected in rainwater in Minnesota and other states, some people are looking into iodine supplements and other ways to protect the long-term health of their families.
While there are a lot of drawbacks to using iodine, there are plenty of foods that naturally protect our bodies from radiation.

- Wheat Grass
- Apples (and other fruits rich in pectin)
- Kale (and other leafy greens)
- Coconut oil
