A growing body of research suggests that x-ray mammography is planting the seeds of radiation-induced cancer within the breasts of thousands of women who subject themselves to them, annually, without knowledge of their true health risks.
This article focuses on internal exposure to ionizing radiation, its detrimental effects on health, and what nutrition-related steps you can take to reduce exposure and absorption in the body.
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?
Uranium contamination and exposure is increasingly becoming a problem in the modern world. Could something as simple as baking sodium protect against its destructive properties?
Few things strike fear into the hearts of men like the invisible terror of nuclear radiation. While the mention of a mushroom cloud sealed the sales pitch to invade Iraq a decade ago, today the subject of radiations whether from electromagnetic fields like cell phones, medical equipment, depleted uranium weaponry or Fukushima ( the elephant in the room ) has oddly been removed from mainstream conversation.
Detoxification is a nebulous term encompassing a host of therapeutic practices. Cell suffocating metals and organic toxins source oxidative stress/inflammation and have been implicated in everything from cancers and heart disease to Alzheimer's and depression.
Perchlorate is an environmental pollutant primarily associated with releases by defense contractors, military operations and aerospace programs, as it is a key ingredient in rocket fuel. It is now found contaminating conventional and organically grown food, alike.
In a day and age where radiation exposure is inevitable, radioprotective plant allies like Tulsi (holy basil) can be literally life-saving.
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?
Given what we are now exposed to through our food, air, and water, detoxification has become a modern-day necessity. Without the daily activation of ancient, effective physiological pathways designed to remove environmental toxins, we are bound to get sick. So, what are some simple, effective ways we rid our body of its daily toxic burden?
With Fukushima's multi-core meltdown still smoldering in Japan, how safe are our nuclear power plants? Are the real nuclear threats closer than we think?
Perhaps the most dangerous nuclear reactor in the U.S. is in partial shutdown following the discovery of a steam leak reported on Sunday.
New reports indicate a Fukushima-style nuclear disaster is inevitable in the Miami area, and need to be investigated immediately.
Humble miso soup may have saved lives when the atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki. Science now confirms miso prevents radiation injury. It may also prevent cancer and hypertension. Here's why you need at least one cup a day.
28 signs that the west coast of North America is being absolutely fried with nuclear radiation from Fukushima…
One of the most disturbing studies on the real health effects of nuclear power on exposed populations has been published, and it indicates that this archaic form of power creation is causing cancers in our most vulnerable populations: children.
A new review shows the conventional radiation risk model cannot be used to predict health effects of radioactivity inside the body.
Fukushima is a worldwide disaster, one that will affect the health of people for decades and likely for generations to come. A fish with massive radiation was found near the plant. What were we told? We were assured that it showed no signs of deformity, but it’s health was clearly devastated.
A shocking new report defies the chronically underestimated impacts of the Fukushima's triple meltdown on the risk of cancer in exposed populations, which does not just include Japan, but arguably the entire world.
