Radiation Exposure Health Topic

Radiation Exposure Health Topic

Every day, our bodies are exposed to radiation from a wide variety of source. There are several things you can do to limit daily radiation exposure as well as prepare for emergency situations.

  1. CDC Site: Emergency Preparedness and Response Potassium Iodide (KI)

    You should only take potassium idodine (KI) on the advice of emergency management officials, public health officials, or your doctor. There are health risks associated with taking KI.

  4. Differences And Dangers Of Potassium Iodide And Iodate

    A collection of information from Drugs.com and the CDC about Potassium Iodide.

  5. An Alternative Mechanism for Radioprotection by Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO)

    The radioprotective effects of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) have been known for many years, and the suppression of hydroxyl (OH) radicals induced by ionizing radiation has been thought to be the main cause of this effect. The results indicated that low concentration of DMSO exerts radioprotective effects through the facilitation of DNA double-strand break repair rather than through the suppression of indirect action.

  9. The Basics of Boron Neutron Capture Therapy

    Of the various nuclides that have high neutron capture cross-sections, Boron-10 is the most attractive. It is non radioactive and readily available, comprising approximately 20% of naturally occurring boron. Boron-10 absorbs a low energy neutron and ejects an energetic short-range alpha particle and lithium ion which deposit most of their energy within the cell containing the original boron-10 atom. Boron-10 in or adjacent to the tumor cells disintegrates after capturing a neutron and the high energy heavy charged particles produced destroy only the  cells in close proximity to it, primarily cancer cells, leaving adjacent normal cells largely unaffected.

  10. Calcium Bentonite Clay and Protection from Radiation Exposure

    Radioactive material is formed carrying a positive ionic charge. Calcium Bentonite Clay is a negatively charged ion. Simply put, Calcium Bentonite Clay adsorbs and absorbs, capturing positive charged ions, and you wash them off or pass them through your body. Unlike other clays, only Smectites (Bentonites) can absorb andadsorb and are characterized by its expandable properties.

  11. Feel Like a Radiated Sitting Duck? Things You Can Do to Mitigate the Problem

    There are certain materials that will help detoxify the body without ill effects whether or not you have been exposed to these harmful materials. Some of these are: zeolite clay, french green clay, bentonite clay, baking soda, boron, and certain foods.

  12. Dairy Farmers Fight Radiation with Boron

    Why is milk contamination significant in the world of agriculture? Because milk represents the overall condition of the entire food chain, since cows consume grass and are exposed to the same elements as crops. When grass is contaminated everything grown in the same soil is contaminated. Boron can take radiation and release it without upsetting its own very delicate balance. Boron is widely recognized as extremely safe and can be used to capture radioactivity on our soils, gardens, orchards. It also can be safely ingested by humans and animals.

  13. Sodium Bicarbonate Offers Protection from Radiation

    The oral administration of sodium bicarbonate diminishes the severity of the changes produced by uranium in the kidneys. The kidneys are usually the first organs to show chemical damage upon uranium exposure, military manuals suggest doses or infusions of sodium bicarbonate to help alkalinize the urine if this happens. This makes the uranyl ion less kidney-toxic and promotes excretion of the nontoxic uranium-carbonate complex.

  14. Astaxanthin May Help Protect You from Radiation Damage

    Astaxanthin is derived from the microalgae Haematoccous pluvialis. It is produced when the algae's water supply dries up, forcing it to protect itself from ultraviolet radiation. Astaxanthin can protect your skin against sun damage and photo aging effects, just like it protects the algae against the harmful effects of excess ultraviolet radiation. It also appears to have a protective effect against gamma radiation—the highly hazardous ionizing radiation produced by radioactive atoms. Astaxanthin crosses the blood-brain barrier AND the blood-retinal barrier , which brings antioxidant and anti-inflammatory protection to your eyes, brain and central nervous system.

  15. Superfood Spirulina: Can It Reduce Deadly Radiation Effects?

    Many studies have found that Spirulina can serve as a "radiation shield," helping protect your thyroid gland, strengthen your immune system and blood, protect your kidneys, and bind to heavy radioactive isotopes so they can be more quickly eliminated from your body.

  16. Gamma Tocotrienol Protects Against Radiation Damage

    Excessive radiation exposure damages DNA, especially DNA relating to the system in our bone marrow that produces all the red and white blood cells that are vital for survival. In the current experiment mice were exposed to non-lethal amounts of whole body radiation. Stem cell colonies were 80% - 86% maintained in the gamma tocotrienol treated mice, while they were 50% reduced in controls. A detailed analysis of the bone marrow showed that gamma tocotrienol maintained the regenerative integrity of bone marrow cells.
