Could the melanin found in our bodies and in foods like mushrooms help to mitigate the increasingly dire quantities of radiation we are exposed to daily?
While the brain is technically microwaved through cell phone exposure, few consider it a significant health risk. New research indicates that cell phone usage by pregnant women could be damaging the neurological health of their unborn children. On the flip side, solid research exists showing that, for those who are exposed regularly to these wavelengths, there are natural substances -- one particularly interesting one produced exclusively from bees -- that can reduce their harmful effects.
We are bombarded every day by harmful radiation from medical tests like X-rays and CT scans, radon gas and radiation from space. And there is always worry about fallout from disasters like the meltdown at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan. How do you protect yourself from radiation?
