Catalyzed by the extreme tragedy Japan, I set about finding out how to protect myself and my family from radiation.  As the nuclear crisis has been unfolding, it became increasingly obvious that this information was vital to millions of residents of Japan – and to the rest of the world as well.  Though some of the information in this blog may be disturbing, my purpose is not to scare anyone, but to empower individuals, families and communities to take responsibility for their own well being.  I hope you will find this information useful.

The Japanese government continues to repeat the dishonest mantra that radiation exposures and contamination of food and water are below safe limits.  However, the closer we look at the facts of the Fukushima nuclear accident, a very disturbing picture emerges.  Individuals with geiger counters have discovered readings way above official numbers in places, such as this playground not far from Tokyo which had a reading well over 6 microseiverts per hour.

We have been hearing reports from a friend in Ibaraki Prefecture of schoolchildren showing symptoms of radiation sickness, including diarrhea, vomiting and swollen lymph nodes.  This is now being confirmed by the internet media in reports of children having symptoms such as nosebleeds, diarrhea, and fatigue.  I have heard anecdotal reports of nosebleeds from Tokyo all the way to Hokkaido.

This is deeply concerning for the Japanese people, especially children who are more vulnerable to radiation poisoning.  However, it is not only the Japanese that face this danger.  Arnie Gunderson reports that radioactive ‘hot particles’ from Fukushima are being measured in Seattle at about half the rate as Tokyo.  Radioactive material has been found in produce from California and milk from across much of the United States.  We are assured by the FDA and EPA that it is all within safe limits, but the fact is that there is no safe limit for radiation – it is all damaging.  We will not know the full extent of the damage from this disaster for decades – we are still learning from Chernobyl – but, in the meantime, there is plenty we can do to protect us ourselves from this very real and present danger.
Most of the suggestions to follow are worth doing regardless of nuclear accidents, as they are supportive of vibrant health in general.  The current long emergency of nuclear contamination only makes this more important now than ever.  I’m going to do a series of blog posts, each one covering different aspects of holistic radioprotection.  Below is an index.  Links will become active as I update.  I’ll keep updating as I am able to research and process the info I come across.  I hope that you find the information useful and that it supports you in living a long, healthy and spirited life!
All the best to you,
Jonathan

Welcome to the site, thanks for visiting!

This site is dedicated to empowering people to protect themselves from the many sources of radiation that have become omni-present in our environment and food supply.  This site is not dedicated to scaremongering, because we believe that fearless living is the greatest health tonic there is.  However, we do aim to inform frankly of the dangers that exist in the modern world, and the steps that can be taken to reduce risks of adverse health effects.  We aim to take a holistic approach that considers the whole human being, including the physical body, electromagnetic fields and consciousness.  We aim to take an evidence-based approach and have made every effort to provide links to relevant research and indicate where we venture off into theory or speculation.

Now for the disclaimer: This site does not offer medical advice.  We are sharing information and educational resources.  It is up to the individual, in concert with whatever medical, legal or spiritual authority they trust to decide what is or isn’t appropriate for their particular situation.

This is a free site and a service for the people.  Surely the formatting could be improved, and I don’t have much time to keep adding or updating posts, but I will do so as I can.

I hope you find this information as interesting and useful as I have.  Please share it with anyone you think would benefit.  As far as comments, I’d rather you befriend me on Facebook and start a discussion there.

All the best,

Do Japan’s Feed-In Tariffs for Solar Mean Profits for a Few, Price Hikes for Many?

We start with the news: Japanese Diet passes strongly pro-solar legislation to make Japan the #2 solar market in the world

I was overjoyed to hear that the Japanese legislature has passed a very aggressive plan to rapidly move Japan towards a renewable energy future.  In the first year, it is likely to result in the installation of 3-5 GW of photovoltaics, enough to replace 3 nuclear reactors.  And growth of the market for PV in Japan will likely undergo exponential growth for years to come.

This growth will come at the expense of 42 yen per KWh.  This is the cost that utilities such as ToDen (TEPCO) and KanDen will be forced to pay solar energy producers.  Lower feed-in rates are offered for other forms of renewable energy, such as geothermal, wind, hydro, etc.  Of course, the utilities are not going to eat the cost of this greener electricity – they will pass it on to the consumer.  42 yen per KWh is about 3 times the going rate for electricity, and well above the actual cost of production.

These feed-in tariffs guarantee huge profits for a select few – major PV manufacturers such as Sharp, Kyocera and Panasonic and the investors who have the capital to invest in solar installations, including Softbank, which is installing Japan’s largest solar plant to date in Hokkaido.

Many people have the mistaken idea that solar energy is expensive.  It isn’t the cheapest form of energy out there (hydro and wind are cheaper), but solar energy is now cheaper than nuclear energy.  Costs for solar will continue to fall dramatically into the foreseeable future, while costs for non-renewable energy will continue to rise.  Five years from now any debate will be decisively settled in favor of renewables purely on the basis of cost efficiency.  But the Japanese ratepayers are now locked in to higher prices in exchange for greener energy.

Solar power is inherently one of the most democratic forms of energy production.  Compared to wind or hydro, solar energy can be sited almost anywhere.   Solar is also easily scalable, so it can be installed on a few meters of roof space or across many hectares of land.  I have nothing against solar companies profiting from the shift towards renewable energy.  However, as things stand, all we have is a slightly cleaner, greener version of business as usual in Japan.  Those who have money to invest will profit, and those who do not will pay the bill.

Exurban homesteader Ken Elwood at Adam’s Guild blog expresses similar reservations about the renewable energy scheme:

Now I’m thinking, it’s actually a most regressive scheme that further traps people into the top-down system. When they say that utilities have to buy alternative electricity, what that actually means is that alternative electricity is obliged to communicate with the grid, and every one has to pay extra for it. It’s essentially a neo head tax. On top of that, the money is not even paid to the government, but to private interests that are using the government to suck the last of the money from everyone.

A True Renewable Energy Revolution for Japan: Power by the People, for the People

I envision a true renewable energy revolution for Japan.  One in which clean, safe and inexpensive power is produced by the people for the people.  I envision a renewable energy revolution that will show the world that we can power ALL of the world’s energy needs with renewable energy – and that we can do it less expensively than with fossil fuels or nuclear reactors.

Over the last decade, Germany has initiated leadership of the renewable energy revolution and has shown that the technology is ready.  Japan has modeled it’s tariffs after this very successful plan, which is a good start.

Yet there is a unique confluence of events that makes Japan the perfect place for the next step in the renewable energy revolution.  The tragedy of the Fukushima nuclear accident has galvanized resistance to nuclear power and the energy monopolies that created this mess.  70% of the population opposes restarting the reactors, yet the Japanese government continues forward, leading to a great many questioning whether Japan’s democracy is functioning.

It is time for the Japanese people to take matters into their own hands and do what they do best: cooperative organization.

What I propose is a not-for profit cooperative that will facilitate shifting Japan to 100% renewable energy in two decades or less.  We will use volunteer energy, neighborhood and community organizations, the internet, social networks, crowd sourcing and to do it faster, cheaper and more creatively than for-profit corporations could ever dream of doing.  We will draw on the united will of the Japanese people to create a world with clean affordable energy – and we will be a model of inspiration for the rest of the world to follow suit.

Over the next few weeks I’ll be posting more about how exactly this can be done – and it can be done.  Please leave a comment and let me know what you think so far!

All the best,

Jonathan

Mochizuki over at Fukushima Diary reports on radionuclide analysis of vacuum bags from homes in a town in Chiba prefecture, just a few kilometers north and east of Tokyo:

20,201 Bq/Kg from vacuum cleaner in Chiba

The very bad news is that over 20,000 Bq/Kg is high-level radioactive waste that was scattered around someone’s home in a populous area.  That dust was irradiating anyone in the home and worse yet, being inhaled into their lungs.

The very good news is that the cesium and other radionuclides are no longer in that person’s house – and that frequent vacuuming can make a significant difference in the amount of radiation around the home.  You have the power to make your home much safer for yourself and your loved ones.

Air filters, particularly HEPA filters are also very effective at reducing exposure to radioactive dust.  Michael Collins at Enviroreporter.com has repeatedly demonstrated through testing in Los Angeles that HEPA filters will accumulate radiation at many multiples of background radiation.  Due to lack of radionuclide analysis, we cannot confirm that his readings indicate radiation from Fukushima, but we can confirm that household dust in the US can be highly radioactive and the less that you breathe, the better you will feel and the longer you will live.

So, vacuum frequently, get an air filter, breathe deep and seek peace.

Demand Japanese Prime Minister to Shut Down All Nuclear Power Plants

(日本の政治家に原発を止めろ)

By Yuki Endo (Contact)

To be delivered to:

We stand with people of Fukushima and Japan concerned about restarting of Oi and other Nuclear Power Plants in JapanFukushima residents are risking their lives in radiation contaminated area from Fukushima Nuclear Incident by TEPCO that triggered by Great East Earthquake.With swimming class starting, swimming pools are dirty with radiation stuff and that cannot be scrub to clean and water is not radiation free.Fukushima residents are trapped in their homes like in Typhoid Mary in quarantine because they cannot open their windows, children cannot play outside, they cannot breath air, they cannot do landuary or dry their futons, which is a flat mattress with a fabric exterior stuffed with cotton, wool, or synthetic batting that makes up a Japanese bed.

As because of that we’re asking Japanese Prime Minister Yoshiko Noda to shut down the all Nuclear Power Plants.

This about Japanese Prime Minister Yoshiko Noda planning to restart Oi Nuclear Power Plant in Japan right at 3.11 Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant and earthquake incident that residents in Fukushima area are contaminated area who cannot evacuate.

and that’s what you’ll get…

You probably didn’t come here looking for a trove of information on just how radioactive the food supply is, but if you did, have a look around, starting with this post about glowing tuna.

If you are here just here for the sushi jokes, I’ll do my best to maki-it worth your whale and have you rolling on the floor…I know, those are awful.  And it’s not going to get much better.

Unfortunately, bad sushi jokes are almost as common as bad sushi restaurants.  If you run across a good one, please post in the comments section.

So, I’ll start with a few videos and follow up with some undercooked jokes…
Are you ready to rock and roll?
*******
Did you hear about the new sushi bar that caters exclusively to lawyers?
It’s called Sosumi.
*******
What did Sushi A say to Sushi B?
WaaasaaaaaBi?!
*******
A man walks into a sushi bar, examines the fish in the glass case then turns starts to walk towards the door.  Suddenly a knife goes whizzing by his head, leaving a hairline cut in his ear and sticking in the wall.
He whirls to see the sushi chef ready to throw another knife…. “What?!”
In a stern voice, the chef says, “I am sorry, you cannot leave once you have come to the point of nori turn.”
 *******
Sorry.

Prime Minister Noda has decided, against the will of the Japanese people, against the will of residents of Fukui Prefecture, and against the will of the world to restart the nuclear reactors at the Oi nuclear waste generating station, placing Japan and the rest of the world under threat of a repeat of the Fukishima disaster.  Safety measures are inadequate, and Japan has only met 15 of 30 of the IAEA’s safety requirements.  

Media reports of large protests in Japan are being suppressed.  Protests are being coordinated at Japanese embassies worldwide, to let the Japanese Prime Minister know that the world is opposed to their action.  Whether you can make it to a protest or not, you can definitely call your local Japanese embassy and express your opposition to nuclear power.  List thanks to facebook group Fukushima Watchdogs:

Finally scientists have confirmed what we saw coming from 6,000 miles away: pacific bluefin tuna are now contaminated with significant amounts of radioactive cesium and who-knows-what other isotopes.  

Testing of bluefin tuna caught off the coast of California revealed that every one tested contained radiocesium in concentrations as much as 10bq/kq.  To put that number in perspective, 100bq/kg would be considered low-level radioactive waste under U.S. environmental law and require special disposal.  So, it’s only 10% as bad as officially radioactive waste.  Yum!  

And to get a little more perspective, here are some of the numbers coming back in fish in Japan, found at Jan Hemmer’s blog: http://tekknorg.wordpress.com/2012/06/07/latest-food-measurements-japan/

No.109, 111: Fukushima Prefecture greenling (Cs: 160,910 Bq / kg)

No.112, 113: stone flounder in Fukushima Prefecture (Cs: 140,210 Bq / kg)

No.116, 175: Ezoainame Fukushima Prefecture (Cs: 240, 110Bq/kg)

No.121, 179: Fukushima Prefecture fox rockfish (Cs: 210,590 Bq / kg)

Rockfish Fukushima Prefecture: No.124 (Cs: 110 Bq / kg)

No.126, 181: Komonkasube Fukushima Prefecture (Cs: 330,110 Bq / kg)

No.129, 130,185,186: Shiromebaru Fukushima Prefecture (Cs: 220 ~ 1000 Bq / kg)

Croaker, Fukushima Prefecture: No.132 (Cs: 130 Bq / kg)

No.133, 134: slime flounder in Fukushima Prefecture (Cs: 270,470 Bq / kg)

Flounder in Fukushima Prefecture: No.138 (Cs: 120 Bq / kg)

Chelidonichthys Fukushima Prefecture: No.139 (Cs: 120 Bq / kg)

Spotted halibut Fukushima Prefecture: No.140 (Cs: 110 Bq / kg)

Marbled sole Fukushima Prefecture: No.145 (Cs: 310 Bq / kg)

No.151, 152: Murasoi Fukushima Prefecture (Cs: 140,310 Bq / kg)

Strongylocentrotus nudus Fukushima Prefecture: No.161 (Cs: 120 Bq / kg)

Usumebaru Fukushima Prefecture: No.174 (Cs: 270 Bq / kg)

The numbers are truly shocking.  Some of the higher ones would qualify as high-level radioactive waste.   

These tuna almost certainly were born off the coast of Japan and recently migrated to the U.S. west coast.  The really bad news is that scientists expect the levels to get worse over the next year as tuna that have spent longer in Japanese waters continue to migrate across the pacific.  

The glowing sushi jokes that have been circulating for over a year weren’t funny when they started and still aren’t – not because they are inappropriate (they are inappropriate), I just haven’t heard a good one yet.  Maybe the radiation has rotted our sense of humor…

At this point, unfortunately it isn’t just the jokes that stink.  

It appears that 200 metric tons of sardines have washed up on the shore in Chiba Prefecture, and the odor can be smelled quite a distance from the port.  Strange fish kills have been on the rise for years due to the havoc humans have been wreaking on the environment, but the proximity to the largest industrial accident in the history of the world is definitely suggestive of a cause.  

Here is a picture of the port, that’s not sand, those are dead fish and that is blood in the water:

Less than a week after that, Mochizuki at Fukushima Diary reports about a similar occurrence – quite a ways away from Chiba in Kanagwa prefecture, along with this photo: 

10 thousand sardines found dead in South Kanagawa

While Fukushima has certainly brought the issue of radioactive fish to the forefront, such contaminated fish have been a fact of life for some time.In August, 2011 Reuters reported that Strontium 90 was found in fish caught in the Connecticut River downstream from the aging Vermont Yankee nuclear waste generating station.
Radioactivity continues to be a significant problem in the Baltic Sea nearly 30 years after the Chernobyl accident.  In addition to the Chernobyl legacy, a number of nuclear plants continue to release radioactivity into the Baltic.  
The Irish Sea has it’s own problem with radioactivity.  The Sellafield site has two retired reactors but still functions as a used fuel reprocessing plant and nuclear waste storage site.  Sellafield has been continuously leaking radiation into the Irish Sea since 1952.  The following chart, from NoNuclear.SE shows Cesium in fish almost twice as radioactive as the Bluefin Tuna caught off the coast of San Diego:

News media both in Japan and worldwide have parroted the line that the ocean will dilute the radionuclides to insignificant numbers.  But history clearly shows that radionuclides persist in the marine environment and accumulate in food chains to a significant degree for a very, very long time.  Dilution isn’t a very assuring idea, when there are 439 nuclear reactors around the world, all of them releasing radioactivity in the environment!

What You Can Do:

This blog is loaded with info on how to protect yourself from radiation.  If you haven’t already, I highly suggest reading my posts on Probiotics, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and Pectin, and check out the archives as well.  

In addition, I encourage you to limit your intake of seafood, especially from the Pacific.  Avoid larger predatory fish, such as tuna or shark that tend to bioaccumulate toxic elements.  This list describes which fish to avoid in order to decrease mercury exposure, and similar principles should apply with radionuclides.   

I also encourage you to practice anti-nuclear activism and make personal choices that decrease our dependency on nuclear power.

Vitamin D has been largely ignored by mainstream medicine except when it comes to the very minimum levels required to prevent severe deficiency, a common cause of rickets in the past.

Vitamin D has been primarily associated with it’s role in helping the body to metabolize calcium, but it’s functions in the body go way beyond that.

Recently, the remarkable properties of Vitamin D are gaining more attention due to a long list of studies proving that it deserves its place as one of our most important medicines.

Some of the evidence on Vitamin D:

Vitamin D has some very specific benefits when it comes to radioprotection.  Vitamin D is an anti-oxidant, and anti-oxidants should be considered front-line defense against damage due to radiation.
Dr. Mercola writes: 

The protective mechanisms are so strong that researchers suggested vitamin D3 should be considered among the prime (if not the primary) non-pharmacological agents to protect against sub-lethal low radiation damage and, particularly, radiation-induced cancer.

It’s unclear how much vitamin D is necessary to protect against radiation-induced cancer, but researchers have found that daily intakes of vitamin D by adults in the range of 4,000-8,000 IU are needed to maintain blood levels of vitamin D metabolites in the range needed to reduce the risk of breast and colon cancers by about half.

 
Secondly, Vitamin D is an outstanding cancer fighting medicine.  Here are some eye-opening facts about Vitamin D and Cancer from the Vitamin D council:  

 http://www.vitamindcouncil.org/health-conditions/cancer/

Top 10 facts about vitamin D and cancer

  1. Many studies have found solar ultraviolet-B (UVB) vitamin D associated with reduced risk of breast, colon, and rectal cancer.
  2. A randomized controlled trial with 1100 IU/day vitamin D3 plus 1450 mg/day calcium found a 77% reduction in all-cancer incidence.
  3. Geographical studies have found reduced risk in mortality rates for 15-20 types of cancer in regions of higher solar UVB doses.
  4. Observational studies found risk of breast, colon, and rectal cancer falls as vitamin D blood levels rise to over 40 ng/mL (100 nmol/L).
  5. Mechanisms have been proposed to explain how vitamin D acts to reduce the risk of cancer from starting, growing, and spreading.
  6. Those who develop nonmelanoma skin cancer may have produced enough vitamin D to reduce their risk of internal cancers.
  7. Those with higher vitamin D blood levels at time of cancer diagnosis had nearly twice the survival rate of those with the lowest levels.
  8. African-Americans have an increased risk of cancer in part due to lower vitamin D blood levels because of darker skin.
  9. Higher UVB exposure early in life has been found associated with reduced risk of breast and prostate cancer.
  10. Those diagnosed with breast, colon and prostate cancer in summer in Norway had higher survival rates than those diagnosed in winter.
How does Vitamin D fight cancer so effectively?  Here are some of the mechanisms involved: 

  • prevents angiogenesis, the process by which cancerous tumors ‘steal’ blood supply from other tissues by building their own networks of blood vessels
  • increases apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in cancerous tissues
  • switches off ‘oncogenes’ that are involved with the growth of tumors
  • switches on tumor suppressing genes
Vitamin D plays a role in many natural approaches to cancer treatment, including Dr. Burzynski’s antineoplaston therapy, due to it’s ability to flip genetic switches that turn on our bodies’ defenses against cancer.

Some more info on VitaminD3 from Dr. Mercola:

It’s unclear how much vitamin D is necessary to protect against radiation-induced cancer, but researchers have found that daily intakes of vitamin D by adults in the range of 4,000-8,000 IU are needed to maintain blood levels of vitamin D metabolites in the range needed to reduce the risk of breast and colon cancers by about half.

Earlier studies have shown that optimizing your vitamin D levels could help you to prevent at least 16 different types of cancerincluding pancreatic, lung, ovarian, prostate, and skin cancers, so it’s not a stretch to add radiation-induced cancer to that list.

It has been my experience that many are still nervous about taking doses larger than 1,000 to 2,000 units per day. This is unfortunate as most adults without sun or safe tanning bed exposure will need 6,000-8,000 units of vitamin D per day to attain healthy vitamin D levels.

Three Points to Remember About Vitamin D

When using vitamin D therapeutically, it’s important to remember the following:

  1. Your best source for vitamin D is exposure to the sun, without sunblock on your skin, until your skin turns the lightest shade of pink. While this isn’t always possible due to the change of the seasons and your geographic location (and your skin color), this is the ideal to aim for. Vitamin D supplementation or use of a safe tanning bed can fill the gaps during the winter months outside of the tropics, when healthy sun exposure is not an option.
  2. If you supplement with vitamin D, you’ll only want to supplement with natural vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). Do NOT use the synthetic and highly inferior vitamin D2, which is the one most doctors will give you in a prescription unless you ask specifically for D3.
  3. Get your vitamin D blood levels checked! The only way to determine the correct dose is to get your blood tested since there are so many variables that influence your vitamin D status. I recommend using Lab Corp in the United States. Getting the correct test is the first step in this process, as there are TWO vitamin D tests currently being offered: 1,25(OH)D and 25(OH)D.
    The correct test your doctor needs to order is 25(OH)D, also called 25-hydroxyvitamin D, which is the better marker of overall D status. This is the marker that is most strongly associated with overall health.

Some people may be concerned about the risk of Vitamin D toxicity, but most of the studies showing such toxicity involve long-term doses of 40,000 or 50,000 iu.  That is 500 to 1000% higher dosage than what Dr. Mercola recommends.  

I prefer to synthesize vitamin by exposure to sunlight when possible.  I live in Los Angeles where it is sunny all the time.  I try to work in the garden a little bit every day, often shirtless.  But during winter or when I am traveling (especially in Japan), I do sometimes supplement with Vitamin D at 5,000 iu per day.  That’s me, do your own research and decide what is right for you.  

This is a very powerful documentary about Dr. Burzynski’s Antineoplaston Therapy and the efforts by the FDA to suppress the treatment.

GreenMedInfo.com is one of my favorite sources for information on natural therapies, and an important source for this blog.

In the following video, Sayer Ji, founder of GreenMedInfo explains a resource that is the byproduct of two years of information gathering on the topic of reducing Radiation Disaster Associated Toxicity. There are over 100 substances listed which are foods, spices and nutrients which may contribute greatly to reducing suffering associated with this event. The relevant research is located here

http://www.greenmedinfo.com/disease/radiation-disaster-associated-toxicity

This video goes into some detail about why the official radiation risk models are not realistic and the real dangers are much worse than governments lead you to believe.

All the best,

JB

This is a very good video covering the radioprotective qualities of Vitamin C as well as some of the social and political issues, including the resistance by the Japanese government to care for their citizens.
