How can I avoid radiation exposure?

The radiation from Fukiskima is still a concern for many. A reader asks what she can do to be better prepared for radiation levels.

I know that the disaster that happened in Fukishima, Japan happened years ago, but I am still worried about radiation levels increasing in America?  I don’t even know how much radiation is too much but I want to be prepared.  Do you know where to find the radiation pills?

That’s a great question.  And, you are not the only one concerned with the increasing of radiation levels and fall out from Japan.  We are all exposed to a certain amount of radiation each day.  Depending on where you live, and your lifestyle, these levels can increase and decrease.  This website has a calculator that will tell you how much radiation you receive on a yearly basis from natural means and from un-natural means.  If you are still concerned with radiation from Japan, then you can buy some potassium iodide tablets that will help if there is a nuclear event near you.

Potassium iodide helps prevent the thyroid from absorbing some of the radioactive materials that can cause damage to our bodies.  According the website that sells these tablets, by taking them immediately after a nuclear event, the thyroid becomes saturated with “good iodine” and cannot absorb the “bad iodine.” I must advise you that these tablets are to be taken after a nuclear event has occurred near you.  I would not advise you to take these due to the fallout from Japan because too much time has passed.

As well, consider investing in a tactical gas mask with CBRN materials.

There are also other steps you can take to avoid radiation and also ways to wash foods that will remove most radiation.

I hope this helps.

Thanks again,
