      The following dietary advice is from the Idaho Observer.  http://www.proliberty.com/observer/20050826.htm

      I have taken the liberty of highlighting some of the material which IMHO is the most important, but I hope you will read it all.  I am not an expert, but it makes a lot of sense to this devotee of Adelle Davis. As the radiation from the Fukushima disaster crosses the Pacific and contaminates the shores of the West Coast, it will become more and more necessary to take steps to protect ourselves.

      May God help us all!

      From the August 2005 Idaho Observer:

      How to Detox Your Body of Depleted Uranium Residues, the Effects of Radiation, and Radioactive Contamination
      from Radiation Detox.com

      Sad but true: There are thousands of scientific references and
      medical studies out there on the fact that radiation and radioactivity
      can harm you yet, despite millions of dollars spent by the government to study radiation, virtually nothing is available about a detoxification
      diet or nutritional supplements you might use to minimize the effects
      radioactive contamination.

      Here’s some of the information we do know from the only book in the
      world on the topic. Keep this information in the back of your mind as it may one day help save you or someone you know.

      Most people are aware taking potassium iodide (KI) or potassium
      iodate (KIO3) tablets will help block your thyroid gland from absorbing
      radioactive iodine should there ever be a dirty bomb explosion or
      nuclear power plant mishap such as the Three Mile Island incident. In
      1999, another such accident happened in Tokaimura, Japan where several
      individuals died from radiation exposure in a fuel processing facility.

      What people don’t recognize is that potassium iodide or iodate
      tablets only protect the thyroid gland and do not provide protection
      from any other radiation exposure, so taking them should not give you a
      false sense of security. It’s important to detox your body after
      radioactive exposure!

      One question is, what do you do if KI or KIO3 tablets aren’t
      available during an emergency? Interestingly enough, according to
      research by Ken Miller, health physicist at the Hershey Medical Center,
      he found that an adult could get a blocking dose of stable iodine by
      painting 8 ml of a 2 percent tincture of iodine on the abdomen or
      forearm (places on the body where absorption is rapid) approximately 2
      hours prior to I-131 contamination. I-131 is a radioactive form of
      iodine present in the fallout from above-ground atomic bomb blasts.
      Potassium iodine tablets are best in cases where advance notice of
      radiation exposure are possible, but if they are not available iodine
      tincture is the next best thing.

      After exposure
      External: An entirely different problem arises after you’ve been
      exposed to radioactive contamination because now you have to get rid of
      any radioactive particles you may have ingested through the air you
      breathed, water you drank, or food you ate. Some people suggest Epsom
      salts, Clorox or clay baths to remove any residues on your skin and to
      leach out any heavy metals you may have absorbed.
      Internal: The big worry is internal contamination. To gain some
      insights into what to do, we have to turn to the story of the atomic
      bombing of Nagasaki.

      Diet: At the time of the atomic bombing, Tatsuichiro Akizuki, M.D.,
      was Director of the Department of Internal Medicine at St. Francis’
      Hospital in Nagasaki and he fed his staff and patients a strict diet of
      brown rice, miso and tamari soy soup, wakame, kombu and other seaweed,
      Hokkaido pumpkin, and sea salt. He also prohibited the consumption of
      sugar and sweets since they suppress the immune system.

      By imposing this diet on his staff and patients, no one succumbed to
      radiation poisoning whereas the occupants of hospitals located much
      further away from the blast incident suffered severe radiation

      Much of this positive result has to do with the fact that the sea
      vegetables contain substances that bind radioactive particles and escort them out of the body. This is why seaweed sales usually skyrocket after radiation disasters and why various seaweeds and algae are typically
      used to treat radiation victims.

      Algeas: In Chernobyl, for instance, spirulina was used to help save
      many children from radiation poisoning. By taking 5 grams of spirulina a day for 45 days, the Institute of Radiation Medicine in Minsk even
      proved that children on this protocol experienced enhanced immune
      systems, increased T-cell counts and reduced radioactivity. Israeli
      scientists have since treated Chernobyl children with doses of natural
      beta carotene from Dunaliella algae and proved that it helped normalize
      their blood chemistry. Chlorella algae, a known immune system builder
      and heavy metal detoxifier, has also shown radioprotective effects.
      Because they bind heavy metals, algae should therefore be consumed after exposure to any type of radioactive contamination.

      Sodium alginate: In 1968 a group of Canadian researchers at McGill
      University of Montreal, headed by Dr. Stanley Skoryna, actually set out
      to devise a method to counteract the effects of nuclear fallout. The key finding from their studies was that sea vegetables contained a
      polysaccharide substance, called sodium alginate, which selectively
      bound radioactive strontium and eliminated it from the body.

      Sodium alginate is found in many seaweeds, especially kelp, and since that time the Russians have been seriously researching the use of their own kelps from Vladivlostok, from which they have isolated the
      polysaccharide U-Fucoidan, which is another radioactive detoxifier.

      Miso soup: Because miso soup was so effective in helping prevent
      radiation sickness, the Japanese have also done research identifying the presence of an active ingredient called zybicolin, discovered in 1972,
      which acts as a binding agent to also detoxify and eliminate radioactive elements (such as strontium) and other pollutants from the body.

      Black and green teas: The kelps and algaes aren’t the only natural
      foods with radio-detoxifying effects. In terms of fluids to drink, black and green tea have shown radioprotective effects" whether consumed
      either before or after exposure to radiation. This anti-radiation effect was observed in several Japanese studies, and studies from China also
      suggest that the ingredients in tea are radioactive antagonists.

      In short: After any sort of radioactive exposure you want to be
      eating seaweeds and algaes along with almost any type of commercial
      heavy metal chelating formula to bind radioactive particles and help
      escort them out of the body. Whether you’re worried about depleted
      uranium, plutonium or other isotopes, this is the wise thing to do which can possibly help, and certainly won’t hurt.

      Supplements: Many nutritional supplements have been developed for the purpose of detoxifying heavy metals, most of which contain the algaes
      and plant fibers and other binding substances.

      The anti-radiation diet
      An anti-radiation diet should focus on the following foods:
      · Miso soup
      · Spirulina, chlorella and the algaes (kelp, etc.)
      · Brassica vegetables and high beta carotene vegetables
      · Beans and lentils
      · Potassium, calcium and mineral rich foods
      · High nucleotide content foods to assist in cellular repair
      including spirulina, chlorella, algae, yeast, sardines, liver, anchovies and mackerel
      · Cod liver oil and olive oil
      · Avoid sugars and sweets and wheat
      · A good multivitamin/multimineral supplement

      Mineral supplementation: Yet another benefit of the sea vegetables
      rarely discussed is their high mineral content, which is a bonus in the
      case of radioactive exposure.

      Consuming natural iodine, such as in the seaweeds, helps prevent the
      uptake of iodine-131 while iron inhibits the absorption of plutonium-238 and plutonium-239. Vitamin B-12 inhibits cobalt-60 uptake (used in
      nuclear medicine). Zinc inhibits zinc-65 uptake and sulfur is
      preventative for sulfur-35 (a product of nuclear reactors) incorporation by the body.

      Since nuclear workers are potentially exposed to radioactive sulfur,
      this means that workers in the atomic power industry need a higher
      content of sulfur in their diet. MSM supplements provide a source of
      dietary sulfur, but thiol supplements such as cysteine, lipoic acid and
      glutathione serve double-duty in this area because they help detoxify
      the body and attack all sorts of other health problems as well.

      Ginseng: The immune system is usually hit hard after radiation
      exposure, and a number of steps can be taken to help prevent
      opportunistic infections after a radioactive incident. Though the full
      dimensions of the protective mechanism is still unknown, Siberian
      ginseng is one form of ginseng that exerts a definite radioprotective
      effect and has been demonstrated to lessen the side effects of
      radiation. It was widely distributed by the Soviet Union to those
      exposed Chernobyl radiation and is commonly used to help cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy.

      Panax ginseng has prevented hemorrhaging after radiation exposure,
      prevents bone marrow death and stimulates blood cell formation, so it’s
      another supplement to add to one’s protocol.

      In short: Yeasts, beta glucans, bee pollen and various forms of
      ginseng have all been shown to bolster the immune system after radiation incidents. In terms of radiation burns, aloe vera has a proven ability
      to treat serious radiation burns and offers other radioprotective
      effects, and can easily be grown in your house.
      Reishi mushrooms: Consuming Reishi mushrooms is another proven way to bolster your immune system after radiation exposure and helps reduce
      the damage from radiation. It’s been used to decrease radiation sickness in animals and help them recover faster after potentially deadly

      Miscellaneous: The amino acid L-Glutamine can be used to help repair
      the intestine in case of the gastrointestinal syndrome usually suffered
      due to radiation exposure, and a variety of substances can help rebuild
      blood cells to prevent hematopoietic syndrome. Those particular foods
      include beet juice, liver extract, spleen extract, and shark
      alkyglycerols. Most oncologists don’t know that shark liver oil, with
      alkyglycerols, can help platelet counts rebound in days.

      Depleted uranium is currently in the journalistic spotlight because
      U.S. weapons are made from this material, and after being fired leave a
      legacy of depleted uranium dust in the environment, which anyone can
      absorb. Because 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.

      In areas contaminated by depleted uranium dusts, it therefore makes
      sense to switch to drinking slightly alkaline water and to favor a
      non-acidic diet to assist in this detoxification. The heavy metal
      detoxifiers mentioned previously should be part of the DU-detox diet.

      Another thing you can do is use homeopathics for radiation exposure.
      People commonly argue over whether homeopathics work or not, but if you
      assume the position that they produce no results whatsoever then you
      must also assume that they certainly won’t hurt you, which means the
      only loss from using them is a few dollars. Frankly, there are countless cases and double-blind studies where homeopathic tinctures do provoke
      physical healing effects in the body. Therefore they are a viable
      adjunct treatment option.

      One homeopathic, in particular, is URANIUM NITRICUM (nitrate of
      uranium) which homeopaths suggest should be used in cases of depleted
      uranium exposure or uranium poisoning. Not just soldiers or civilians
      exposed to battlefield dusts, but uranium miners and radiation workers
      may find it quite useful.

      While we’ve discussed just a few of the many supplements and
      protocols you can use to help detox the body of the lingering results of radioactive contamination, including the residues of depleted uranium,
      the last thing that might be of interest is that there is a plant that
      is a natural geiger counter. The spiderwort plant is so sensitive to
      changes in radiation levels (its petals change color upon exposure) that it’s often used as a natural radiation detector (dosimeter), just as
      they use canaries in mines as detectors of poisonous gas. Some people
      like knowing that they have an ongoing monitoring system for radiation
      in the environment, and this is just another tip available in "How to
      Neutralize the Harmful Effects of Radiation or Radioactive Exposure."
