According to Dr. Jeff Masters (from Weather Underground),
"Radiation from Japan's stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has been detected 100 miles to the northeast, over the Pacific Ocean, by the U.S. military. Westerly to southwesterly winds have predominated over Japan the past few days, carrying most of the radiation eastwards out to sea. The latest forecast for Sendai, Japan, located about 40 miles north of the Fukushima nuclear plant, calls for winds with a westerly component to dominate for the remainder of the week, with the exception of a 6-hour period on Tuesday.

(Video no longer available).
Thus, any radiation released by the nuclear plant will primarily affect Japan or blow out to sea. A good tool to predict the radiation cloud's path is NOAA's HYSPLIT trajectory model. The model uses the GFS model's winds to track the movement of a hypothetical release of a substance into the atmosphere.

One can specify the altitude of the release as well as the location, and follow the trajectory for up to two weeks. However, given the highly chaotic nature of the atmosphere's winds, trajectories beyond about 3 days have huge uncertainties.


One can get only a general idea of where a plume is headed beyond 3 days. I've been performing a number of runs of HYSPLIT over past few days, and so far great majority of these runs have taken plumes of radioactivity emitted from Japan's east coast eastwards over the Pacific, with the plumes staying over water for at least 5 days. Some of the plumes move over eastern Siberia, Alaska, Canada, the U.S., and Mexico in 5 - 7 days.

Such a long time spent over water will mean that the vast majority of the radioactive particles will settle out of the atmosphere or get caught up in precipitation and rained out. It is highly unlikely that any radiation capable of causing harm to people will be left in atmosphere after seven days and 2000+ miles of travel distance. Even the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, which had a far more serious release of radioactivity, was unable to spread significant contamination more than about 1000 miles." - Dr. Jeff Masters.

How To Protect Yourself From Radiation Exposure

Because of what is occurring in Japan, many people are wondering what they could do to protect themselves in the event that dangerous levels of radiation were to make their way into the United States.

The following is a consensus of options that may be protective without being dangerous.  It’s important to understand that some of these options have not been studied in large, well organized trials but come about as a result of the reported experience of countries, scientists and physicians who had to deal with dangerous levels of radiation and their effects on the populations exposed to them.

There are two types of radiation, according to Lita Lee, author of Radiation Protection Manual. They are ionizing and non-ionizing radiation. The ionizing radiation is more damaging because it is of a higher energy than non-ionizing radiation and produces charged particles called ions, either negative ions (the good “guys”) or positive ions (the bad ones). Ionizing radiation is produced from nuclear bombs, nuclear reactors, medical and dental x-rays, and is the type of radiation used to irradiate food. The non-ionizing radiation includes electromagnetic radiation produced by electric current, radio waves, microwave ovens, radar stations, television (cathode ray tube), video display terminals (VDT’s) computers, high voltage lines, infrared and fluorescent lights, and sunlamps (e.g. tanning booths which emit ultraviolet light).

#1- Potassium Iodide (KI) – Many are reading about potassium iodide being handed out in Japan because of radiation levels.  Potassium iodide may protect just the thyroid gland against exposure to radioactive iodine that occurs when radiation levels increase.  KI will probably not help with radiation damage in other parts of the body.

The FDA has approved two different forms of KI—tablets and liquid—that people can take by mouth after a nuclear radiation emergency. Tablets come in two strengths, 130 milligram (mg) and 65 mg. The tablets are scored so they may be cut into smaller pieces for lower doses. Each milliliter (mL) of the oral liquid solution contains 65 mg of KI.

According to the FDA, the following doses are appropriate to take after internal contamination with (or likely internal contamination with) radioactive iodine:

Adults should take 130 mg (one 130 mg tablet OR two 65 mg tablets OR two mL of solution).
Women who are breastfeeding should take the adult dose of 130 mg.
Children between 3 and 18 years of age should take 65 mg (one 65 mg tablet OR 1 mL of solution). Children who are adult size (greater than or equal to 150 pounds) should take the full adult dose, regardless of their age.
Infants and children between 1 month and 3 years of age should take 32 mg (½ of a 65 mg tablet OR ½ mL of solution). This dose is for both nursing and non-nursing infants and children.
Newborns from birth to 1 month of age should be given 16 mg (¼ of a 65 mg tablet or ¼ mL of solution). This dose is for both nursing and non-nursing newborn infants.
The protective effects of a dose of KI is about 24 hours. KI is available without a prescription, and a pharmacist can sell you KI brands that have been approved by the FDA

#2- Glutathione and a potentially protective combination!
We know radiation exposure causes approximately 3% of all cancers. This fact has been studied extensively. When you are exposed to radiation a very reactive type of free radical is formed called a “hydroxyradical”. Studies have shown glutathione’s (GSH) detoxification abilities play a key role in neutralizing hydroxyradicals and cancer specialists are now raising glutathione (GSH) levels in patients who are undergoing radiation therapy as part of their cancer treatment. Detoxification benefits from boosted glutathione (GSH) levels and helps cancer patients better tolerate their treatment. Studies have also been done around the world, from Switzerland to Spain to India to Germany, on the effect of glutathione (GSH) on radiation damage. Low levels of glutathione (GSH) were connected with an increased risk of developing cancer from radiation exposure. Patients undergoing cancer treatment experienced stronger side effects and greater injury from radiation therapy when they had low glutathione (GSH) levels.

The immune system, have been shown to be better able to withstand radiation therapy when cancer specialists raised glutathione (GSH) prior to treatment. The implication here is…glutathione (GSH) does and will, to a greater degree, play a major role in the treatment of cancer by using detoxification to reduce the damaging effects of radiation.

At the time of the atomic bombing, Tatsuichiro Akizuki, M.D. was Director of the Department of Internal Medicine at St. Francis’s Hospital in Nagasaki and he fed his staff and patients a strict diet of brown rice, miso and tamari soy soup, wakame, kombu and other seaweed, Hokkaido pumpkin, and sea salt. He also prohibited the consumption of sugar and sweets since they suppress the immune system.

By imposing this diet on his staff and patients, no one succumbed to radiation poisoning whereas the occupants of hospitals located much further away from the blast incident suffered severe radiation fatalities. Much of this positive result has to do with the fact that the sea vegetables contain substances that bind radioactive particles and escort them out of the body. This is why seaweed sales usually skyrocket after radiation disasters, and why various seaweeds and algae are typically used to treat radiation victims.  See this article for more information.

In Chernobyl, for instance, spirulina was used to help save many children from radiation poisoning. By taking 5 grams of spirulina a day for 45 days, the Institute of Radiation Medicine in Minsk even proved that children on this protocol experienced enhanced immune systems, T-cell counts and reduced radioactivity. Israeli scientists have since treated Chernobyl children with doses of natural beta carotene from Dunaliella algae and proved that it helped normalize their blood chemistry.  Chlorella algae, a known immune system builder and heavy metal detoxifier, has also shown radioprotective effects. Because they bind heavy metals, algae should therefore be consumed after exposure to any type of radioactive contamination. (Note: Marine phytoplankton is also a powerbul detoxifier and nourishing product.

In 1968 a group of Canadian researchers at McGill University of Montreal, headed by Dr. Stanley Skoryna, actually set out to devise a method to counteract the effects of nuclear fallout. The key finding from their studies was that sea vegetables contained a polysaccharide substance, called sodium alginate, which selectively bound radioactive strontium and eliminated it from the body.

Sodium alginate is found in many seaweeds, especially kelp, and since that time the Russians have been seriously researching the use of their own kelps from Vladivlostok, from which they have isolated the polysaccharide U-Fucoidan, which is another radioactive detoxifier. Because miso soup was so effective in helping prevent radiation sickness, the Japanese have also done research identifying the presence of an active ingredient called zybicolin, discovered in 1972, which acts as a binding agent to also detoxify and eliminate radioactive elements (such as strontium) and other pollutants from the body.

The kelps and algaes aren’t the only natural foods with radio-detoxifying effects. In terms of fluids to drink, black and green tea have shown “radioprotective effects” whether consumed either before or after exposure to radiation. This anti-radiation effect was observed in several Japanese studies, and studies from China also suggest that the ingredients in tea are radioactive antagonists.

In short, after any sort of radioactive exposure you want to be eating seaweeds and algaes along with almost any type of commercial heavy metal chelating formula to bind radioactive particles and help escort them out of the body. Whether you’re worried about depleted uranium, plutonium or other isotopes, this is the wise thing to do which can possibly help, and certainly won’t hurt. Many nutritional supplements have been developed for the purpose of detoxifying heavy metals, most of which contain the algaes and plant fibers and other binding substances. Basically, an anti-radiation diet should focus on the following foods:

· Miso soup
· Spirulina, chlorella and the algaes (kelp, etc.)
· Brassica vegetables and high beta carotene vegetables
· Beans and lentils
· Potassium, calcium and mineral rich foods
· High nucleotide content foods to assist in cellular repair including spirulina, chlorella, algae, yeast, sardines, liver, anchovies and mackerel
· cod liver oil and olive oil
· Avoid sugars and sweets and wheat
· A good multivitamin/multimineral supplement

Yet another benefit of the sea vegetables rarely discussed is their high mineral content, which is a bonus in the case of radioactive exposure. Consuming natural iodine, such as in the seaweeds, helps prevent the uptake of iodine-131 while iron inhibits the absorption of plutonium-238 and plutonium-239. Vitamin B-12 inhibits cobalt-60 uptake (used in nuclear medicine), zinc inhibits zinc-65 uptake and sulfur is preventative for sulfur-35 (a product of nuclear reactors) incorporation by the body.

Since nuclear workers are potentially exposed to radioactive sulfur, this means that workers in the atomic power industry need a higher content of sulfur in their diet. MSM supplements provide a source of dietary sulfur, but thiol supplements such as cysteine, lipoic acid and glutathione serve double-duty in this area because they help detoxify the body and attack all sorts of other health problems as well.

  4. Thank you for the information on what to eat, I'm very worried about radiation's affect on health, as it's invisible and we don't know how much we're being exposed to. Anything that will limit radiation absorption (especially in the form of diet) is very helpful to know.

  10. If you are so inclined
    - don't spend much time outdoors
    - put wet cloth over all doors and windows in the house
    - wear a moist mask when outdoors
    - use bottled water produced on the East coast
    - prayers would be a waste of time as a matter of help, otherwise - by all means
    - wear long sleeve shorts and pants outdoors
    - wash them often
    - take a shower every time you come from outside
    - get a radiation dosimeter and watch the level
    - go live under ground
    - etc. and so on
    Or... you can just relax and don't let it get to you, as the effects would highly likely be negligible practically speaking. Much on some sea weed if you are a fan and like the taste. My wife spent hours upon hours outdoors 60 miles away from Chornobyl the next day after it blew up. Today, 25 years later, she is still around and very much alive and kicking.

  11. Prayer &/or Meditation does help, but somehow different than we imagine. And there are people who could stop something from happening, but this means braking the free will (important law of our Universe) and they would never do it.

    Looking at everything from our small perspective, things may look tragic. But looking at everything from a wider perspective, everything happens like it's suppose to. The humans are infinite and immortal, we will never die. Only our bodies, in the worst scenario.

    Live in Pure Love and everything will be ok. Don't oppose the changes, but instead create with your mind the world you want. Ask for those who generate negative emotions (bad people) to stop incarnating on Earth. I think that their incarnation is already banned or it will be soon.

    Mother Earth & the positive humans are being prepared for the new world. Stop looking at those who generate negativity! Instead look at those who are awakening in huge numbers and live in love & wisdom. They are the future! The old world as we know it must crumble and make room for the new world. This is a good thing, I promise!

    Please don't forget our daily meditation, because it's very important! We are sending positivity & love in a specially created segment of the Matrix.

    Remember that our mission is to meditate/pray for the new human specie & the new world! Balance your bodies, integrate the new energy, live in pure love and accept the changes. This is our ONLY mission. Every single individual ALREADY chose the path. Stay away from the negative people & keep close the positive ones!

    I'll see you all on the "new Earth"!

    Love, Peace & Light in our lives & to Mother Earth!

  16. It's really not a big deal. When I was a kid, I lived right next door to Chernobyl factory. Of course the fires was bad, but now I am a grown man and nothing is even wrong with me and I have a wife and many children. This is all just fear to create the New World Order.

  18. If it wasn't safe would the US send our experts to the scene to die so that we have none of our own. Dont blow things out of proportion people. The government is a sham and they want one country under god. This plan has been in affect for so long people dont realize, but it is coming. The bible talks about the beast and the beast is the rich corrupt government officials planning to screw us over by microchipping us, watching and guiding our every move. Religion is a weapon government has used for many years people are just too blind.

  26. This earth, this low astral plane is the workshop of the human soul. It's not an end in and of itself. My advice is to eschew the materialistic and highly distracting aspects of this plane and put your energies into elevating your soul by making positive changes to your spiritual state. The Bible is right: love is the answer. If you generate enough of that in your life here on earth you needn't worry about anything else. Will you die of radiation poisoning or other worldly afflictions? Of course you and I will and it doesn't matter when either. But let's get our spiritual lives in order and get right with God. This means, as the Bible points out, being one in God and having God in you, in obeying the Commandments such as "Love God with all your heart" and "Love thy neighbor."
    You can run around with you little guns and big guns and war toys all you want but, guess what? You are mortal and you will die and you will NOT like where you are going for all of eternity. That's a long time to spend burning in Hell. Time is running short, try do everything out of the motivation of love, not fear or hate. Just keep doing that and you needn't fear the end because it will not be the end for you that have learned to live your lives with peace, and love, and harmony.

  27. We need to take this very seriously because it may just save our life, and the life of our friends and family. We need to choose cleaner energy and be responsible to our environment as it's on loan to use, we don't own it. We have to give it back to our grand kids for future generations of all life. This Information is protection from these hazardous toxins.
