Healing Foods for Radiation Exposure

The impact of a global community wobbles any sense of separation when the reality of loss and toxic drift fill the pages of print, cyberscreen and radiowaves.  The devastation and costs generated by tsunami and earthquake in Japan are far-reaching, and those of us who live on the Pacific coast of the American continent prepare for the radiation drift.  I have no credentials to describe or predict the effects of the radiation, and do know that those like myself, who live with MCS need to be more conscious of chemical exposures at any level.

Julie Genser, Founder and Editor of the on-line community Planet Thrive is writing very helpful and practical recipes for healing foods to boost thyroid and over-all well-being.  Here is how Julie Genser begins the first of her articles addressing the radioactive plume

"  There is a lot of confusion, apprehension, and fear swirling around the Internet following Friday’s earthquake, aftershocks and tsunami in Japan, which may have caused nuclear power plant meltdowns in several locations. If this turns out to be the case, those on America’s west coast may be in the direct path of a radioactive plume in the coming days or weeks. Should we all stock up on potassium iodide (KI), a form of iodine that can be used to “fill up” the thyroid’s store and prevent the uptake of radioactive iodine from fallout? Is there anything else we can do to protect ourselves from the effects of radiation?

I looked into this myself over the past couple days since I live in Arizona and could potentially be in the path of any radioactive plume coming our way. What I found is that potassium iodide has a certain amount of risk involved in taking it ..."
