The Tohoku Electric Power Company was quick to assuage these worries and reported that there has been no damage to the nuclear power plant in Fukushima, and there have been no reports of damage or injuries anywhere else in the country. Fortunately for the rest of the world, it looks like this story will be all but forgotten by the end of the week.
But it does illustrate how precarious the situation is in Japan. After nearly 4 years, the Fukushima power plant is still severely damaged, and it may take decades  for the fuel rods within to be safely removed. Until then, Japan is a ticking time bomb. A small earthquake would likely be enough to topple the power plant, which could cause an environmental disaster of epic proportions. It would be prudent for everyone living on the West Coast to protect themselves from a possible meltdown of the Fukushima plant, as well the ongoing contamination of the Pacific Ocean .
Proven Ways to Remove Radioactive Particles from your Body
Fortunately, there are several proven ways to remove radioactive particles from your body. If you’re looking to protect yourself and your family from these toxins, take a look at the list below, and see if any of these substances are right for you.
Of all the organs in your body, your thyroid tends to be one of the most sensitive to radiation damage (second only to the kidneys). It readily absorbs the radioactive form of iodine, known as iodine-131, which is a known byproduct of nuclear fission. The best way to prevent this exposure is by supplementing with normal healthy iodine , which will push the iodine-131 out of your thyroid. Just make sure to use it in moderation. It seems like every time there is a nuclear scare like Chernobyl or Fukushima, there are cases of people overdosing on otherwise healthy supplements.
This crystalline substance is naturally found in volcanic ash and has been used for decades to clean up radioactive particles from nuclear facilities (including the 3 Mile Island  power plant).
But it can also be used to absorb these harmful particles from your body. It’s tasteless and non-toxic  and can bind to Uranium-238, Caesium-137, and Strontium-90.
Bentonite Clay 
When mixed with water, bentonite clay  creates a powerful negative charge that is ideal for bonding with radioactive particles , as well as other pollutants like pesticides and heavy metals. Like Zeolites, it is non-toxic and indigestible. This allows it to rapidly absorb toxic substances and harmlessly pass them through your digestive track.
Although there is a wide selection of bentonite clays on the market, if you’re looking for clays that you can eat, make sure you find one that is advertised as “food grade.”
After the reactor meltdown in Chernobyl, Russian doctors discovered that spirulina is a highly effective radiation treatment . Not only does it absorb Caesium-137, Potassium-40, and Strontium-90, but it can also play a key role in regenerating tissue that is damaged by these substances. Many of the children who were living around the Chernobyl plant were given 55-gram doses of spirulina  every day for several weeks, and were found to be in excellent health afterward. Some of them managed to recover from very high levels of radiation sickness that could have easily killed them. This stuff should be at the top of your list if you want to prepare for any nuclear disaster.
