Radiation Levels on Earth Rising?
Fact: There have been over 2000 recorded nuclear detonations from 1945-1998, which continue to this day.
Fact: Radioactive isotopes constantly bombard the atmosphere, referred to as ‘natural’ background radiation. This really only began with above ground nuclear testing.
Fact: The unstable region of Fukushima Daiichi houses 4 core reactors in meltdown. Chernobyl only had 1. This spells out exponential devastation in comparison.
Fact: Cesium-137 has a half-life of 30 years, Iodine-131 is 8 days and Iodine-129 is 15.7 million years.
“A meltdown is forever.” Michio Kaku
The good news:
Plants have been adapting to Earths’ conditions millions of years longer than humans, and have developed ways of dealing with radiation. While statistics and propaganda are misleading and overwhelming, here are some things you can do!
First: be aware of where your food is coming from. Yes, on top of worrying about whether my food is truly organic, and how many pesticides are really removed from doing a vinegar wash, now I am questioning if radioactive rain irrigated my food. So if you are as OCD as I tend to be, then you may want to try growing your own food, joining a local co-op/CSA program or applying for a plot in a community garden or through a landshare platform.
Second: incorporate some of the recommended radio protective foods into daily life. Personally I eat a mostly raw organic diet and take high-grade spirulina tablets.
Third: mind over medicine! Don’t stress out!! Whether a threat is real or perceived (ie. you are dwelling on situations in your mind), your body responds by enlisting the sympathetic nervous system and releasing cortisol into your bloodstream. More here.
