The International Atomic Energy Agency has rated the danger from the damage in Japan a 4 on a 7-point scale. That’s lower than the risks caused by the meltdown at Three Mile Island in 1979, which rated a 5, and the Chernobyl disaster in 1986, which rated a 7.  At Three Mile Island, no one died.  The reactor that exploded at Chernobyl, sending a cloud of radiation over much of Europe, was not housed in a sealed container as those at Daiichi are. The Japanese reactors also do not use graphite, which burned for several days at Chernobyl.  Acute radiation deaths or acute radiation syndrome (ARS) usually would be expected only much closer to the plant.  Radioactivity can also be carried to distant places by wind, though it will become increasingly diffused. So what we need to be concerned about in the United States is chronic radiation sickness from the exposure to radiation fallout or contamination.

Radiation fallout or particles that fall on your skin can be brushed off.  However, be careful not to contaminate other people and objects.   Radiation contamination occurs when one comes into contact with radioactive materials, typically in the form of what you eat, inhale, and absorb through skin wounds.   You can have both internal and external contamination. If a large amount of radioactive materials is absorbed, they will be transported to various sites in the body, such as the thyroid or bone marrow, and can cause DNA defects.

Both radioactive fallout and contamination require the immediate removal of the radioactive materials.  Contaminated skin should be scrubbed immediately with large amounts of soap and water, small puncture wounds should be cleaned vigorously to remove all radioactive particles (even though the scrubbing may cause pain), and contaminated hair is clipped off rather than shaved because shaving may abrade the skin and allow the contamination to enter the body. Just like in Meryl Streep’s movie Silkwood, scrubbing of the skin surface areas should continue until a Geiger counter shows that the radioactivity is gone.

What are the symptoms of chronic radiation sickness, how are they associated with yeast and parasitic infections, and how do we reduce or eliminate them?  Stay tuned.  More details will be revealed in the next few articles.  Become a fan of our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/drjsbest  to receive daily updates on this important issue.  You can also follow us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/drjsbest.

Potassium iodine (KI) is good to prevent thyroid cancer only if there is radioactive iodine in the radiation.  Also, radioactive iodine loses its radiation power after a few days.   So, KI is only needed within the first few days of exposure to radiation.  Stocking up on a bottle or two can be more than enough to fight against this type of radiation damage.  A bottle is good for a 30-day supply, and the shelf life is from five to seven years.

Because of the frenzy of stocking up on KI, some retailers take advantage of the situation by increasing their prices from less than $ 50 a bottle to $ 500 or even $1,500 a bottle.  Is it necessary to pay for KI at such a high price?  I don’t believe so, and the following is the reason why (be aware that KI is only good to prevent thyroid cancer right after the exposure to radiation, but not other types of cancer such as leukemia).

Can you get iodine from a natural source?  Of course you can!  Sea vegetables like kelp provide an abundance of iodine.  One table spoon of kelp provides approximately 12 mg of iodine, while daily recommended dosage is only 150 mcg (1 mg = 1,000 mcg).  Therefore, it would make more sense to stock up on dry sea vegetables like kelp.  If you eat sea vegetables regularly, then you have no need to stock KI.

What is Acute Radiation Syndrome (ARS)?

ARS occurs when individuals are exposed to a large amount of radiation in a very short period of time.  According to earthquake experts, 6 G (gray is a measurement of radiation exposure) is a lethal dosage.  Individuals exposed to more than 6 Gy of radiation will die within days or weeks.  Why is radiation so lethal? Radiation burns and kills.  It destroys DNA in white blood cells, and thus destroys the immune system. 

Symptoms of ARS:

Within two to three days of radiation exposure, if a cluster symptoms of nausea, vomiting, fever, diarrhea, skin burns, confusion, etc. occur, that’s an indication of ARS. 

Treatment for ARS:

According to the Mayo clinic, treatment for ARS is geared towards symptom relief.  If there is radioactive iodine in the radiation, the patient is also given Iodine potassium (KI) to prevent thyroid cancer.  However, KI will not prevent other types of cancer such as leukemia.

Should we be worried about ARS?

Unless you are exposed to a large dosage of radiation within a short period of time, you will not suffer from Acute Radiation Syndrome.  The fallout of the radiation diffuses the radiation power after “travelling” a distance.  Some people in the U. S. are very concerned about the impact of the nuclear power plant damage after the earthquake and tsunami in Fukushima, Japan.  However, what we really should be concerned about is chronic radiation sickness.

In future posts, I will elaborate on the symptoms of chronic radiation sickness and the role of yeast-free living in the prevention and treatment of this serious public health issue.

Yeast disorders do not just affect women.  It’s equal opportunity for men as well.  Yeast infection or candidiasis symptoms can range from head to toe just the same for both female and male.  No race, ethnicity or nationality is immune to yeast disorders.

Male yeast infections are just as common as female yeast infections.  For female, vaginal yeast infection is a common symptom; while for male, itchy skin rash on the penis is also a very common symptom.  Because yeasts live in the mucous membrane, yeast disorders are sexually transmittable through kissing, intercourse, or any forms of body fluid exchange.  When one of the sexual partners has yeast infection symptoms, s/he will infect the partner, and both partners will give the symptoms back and forth to each other.  Therefore, it’s important for both partners to be treated simultaneously.

The most effective way for treating yeast infections or candidiasis is using a holistic approach including yeast-free nutrition, herbal therapy, stress management, and spiritual counseling.   For more information, visit www.drjsbest.com.  I also provide consultation via telephone or Skype.  For appointment, call (800) 715-3053 or e-mail: drj@drjsbest.com.

Yeast infections or candidiasis affect both the mind and body.  Physical symptoms can range from head to toe.  They include: recurrent headaches (including migraine) , mid-ear infections, eyelid swelling, sore throats, mouth thrush, chronic coughs, asthma, constipation, diarrhea, hypothyroidism, hypoglycemia, skin rashes, anus itching, etc.   

In addition to physical symptoms, mental and psychological symptoms can also be present.  They include: poor mental concentration (foggy mind), depression, mood swings, phobia, anxiety, and insomnia.

Yeasts are everywhere.  They are in the air we breath, the water we drink, on the furniture we touch, on the ground or grass we walk on, on the skin that gets infected, on the pet’s fur, etc.  When the immune system is strong, the body can co-exist with yeasts, just like a good police force can keep a good social order.  When the police force (the immune system) is weak, then chaos will be the result.

Indulgence in yeast favorite food (Standard American Diet – SAD) that contains sugar, dairy, wheat, yeast, alcohol, cafeine, nicotin, and chemicals, excessive use of antibiotics, lack of exercise, pre-existing illnesses, poor hygene, sexual contact, and psychological stress, can cause the breakdown of the immune system and the thriving of yeasts.

Psychological stress is the primary cause for yeast disorders.  Unfinished business, boredom and “Busy-Taking-Care-of-Others Syndrome” are common causes for chronic psychological stress.

Yeasts and parasites develop their colonies at parts of your body that are weak and have little defense.  Therefore, symptoms of yeast and parasitic infections can range from head to toe.

For example, if your thyroid gland is weak, yeasts and parasites will lodge in that area and cause overweight or underweight problems.  If they attack the mid ear, they can cause mid-ear infections and thus Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD).   They can also cause allergies, mouth thrush, asthma, foggy mind, depression, phbias, vaginal yeast infections, prostatitis, hormonal imbalance, fibromyalgia, skin rash, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.  The above are only some examples, the list goes on. 

The causes of Cancer, AIDS, and Diabetes, etc. are complex.  However, when the overgrowth of yeasts and parasites in the body is controlled, symptoms of the most complicated diseases can be reduced or eliminated.
