We all share the same air in this universe and we are separated from our neighbors with no walls or forms of protection. The downside is that the control over the chemicals being spread into the environment is quite limited; and thus exposure is almost a certainty. All we can do is one, avoidance and secondarily, begin to counter the effects through full body detoxification and other protective measures. For those residents near the Fukushima nuclear power plant, potassium iodide was provided and recommended as an important part of supplementation and diet.
People in such a risk should also consider the importance of Clinoptilolite Zeolite. In previous nuclear disasters, Zeolite was used for its natural detoxifying properties, as well as for its potential for human detoxification.
There are long term and larger concerns which need to be addressed after getting exposed to radiation. Radioactive elements such as Plutonium, Uranium, Strontium and Cesium should also be closely watched. Radioactive iodine-131 can disintegrate in the body (after causing damage) but heavy metals are absorbed by tissues and fat cells and eventually damages DNA. This is what is referred to as bio-accumulation, heavy metals just linger in the body and accumulate.
Clinoptilolite Zeolite was used in response to the nuclear disasters at Three Mile Island and Chernobyl for cleaning up both water and land. To absorb the radioactive heavy metals, half a million tons of this substance were dropped into the reactor. Zeolite was fed to cattle to prevent the radioactive ions from contaminating the milk. The substance was also used to treat the contaminated soil and help return it to almost zero levels of Strontium or Cesium. When there was a partial meltdown at the nuclear power plant at Three Mile Island, Zeolite was used to purify the surrounding water. That is what is so unique about Zeolite – its ability to soak up toxins and heavy metals from anything it comes in contact with. Once trapped inside the cage, its essentially trapped forever.
There is enough documentation that supports the effective and safe use of Zeolite for human intake, in particular detoxification. Liquid Zeolite is found to be very useful for human consumption for the purpose of detoxification. You would want a substance that is still in its most natural form which Zeolites are. A lot of health experts agree that illnesses are usually caused by a build up of toxins in the body. Unfortunately, the exposure to chemicals has become quite common these days. That is why there is such a need for detoxification in the daily routine with liquid Zeolite.
