Many people are concerned about the nuclear fallout from Fukushima, Japan.  In my previous articles I clarified that Americans in the U. S. do not have to be concerned about acute radiation syndrome (ARS) at this time, since ARS only occurs when there is a large amount of exposure to radiation in a short period of time.

What we need to be concerned about is chronic radiation sickness.  Most radiation particles have a long half-life.  For example, cesium: Cs-137 has a half-life of 30 years  Radiation particles can contaminate the water supply, food, environment, pets, and people. 

The symptoms of chronic radiation sickness vary according to the dose and the duration of radiation exposed.  The general symptoms include:  recurrent infections, low grade fever, loss of appetite, weakness and fatigue, fainting, dehydration, inflammation (swelling, redness or tenderness of tissues), anemia, unhealed open wounds, hair loss, bruises, and skin burns.  Large amounts of or long term exposure can cause birth defects and cancer. 

Treatment usually focuses on the reduction of symptoms.  The Mayo Clinic staff is also concerned about bacterial infections.  However, there is no mention of yeast disorders. 

Why do yeast disorders occur with chronic radiation sickness?  Very simple, radiation burns and kills.  It destroys the DNA in your white cells, and thus destroys the immune system.  If the immune system is weak, the body has no defense when yeasts, bacteria, viruses and parasites invade.  The contemporary medical establishment uses antibiotics liberally to kill bacteria and viruses, but antibiotics kill both the good and bad guys.  The good guys (good bacteria floras) take a long time to come back, while the bad guys (harmful yeasts) take no time to repopulate.  Consequently the body suffers a severe case of yeast overgrowth, and that can contribute to cancer as well.

What would be the best way to prevent and treat chronic radiation sickness?  Stay tuned. The detox protocol for prevention and treatment for chronic radiation sickness will be detailed in the next article.

Choose Love and Peace instead of Fear and Anxiety.

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.
