1. Iodine

You’ve most likely already heard about the protective effects of iodine in thwarting radiation from binding to the thyroid gland. You should seriously consider having some iodine tablets on hand, as, for example, once word got out that the Fukushima fallout was hitting the West coast, tablets sold out quickly.

Radioactive elements will bind to the thyroid if the body is low on iodine. Most people in the U.S. are low on iodine anyway, so you shouldn’t worry about overdosing on this vital substance. Iodine’s protection is only good for about 48 hours, so as long as you skip a day in between doses, you should be good.  Always take iodine according the instructions, and consult your doctor for proper dosage if you have any medical condition or if you are taking any prescription medication.

 

2. Chlorella

This is a single-celled type of algae that is super high in chlorophyll and has been shown to be a powerful detoxifier. Chlorella is often prescribed when someone has mercury poisoning. Take recommended doses of the green algae, which you can buy as a supplement, whenever you believe you have been exposed to radiation — even after a simple trip to the dentist or doctor where X-rays were required. Other foods rich in chlorophyll are leafy greens, bean sprouts, parsley, celery, alfalfa and spirulina.

 

3. Cruciferous Vegetables

Vegetables such as kale, cabbage, broccoli and Brussels sprouts all contain a powerful detoxing agent called sulfur. This substance has long been known to protect the body from radiation and remove the elements if one is exposed.
