“Hope filter radioactive H2O”

As our collective conscious grows and we work together may positive changes are taking place-there is no need to fear.

A natural way to remove radioactive contaminants from water.

The new material is a combination of hemicellulose, a byproduct of forest materials, and chitosan, crushed and powdered crustacean shells that will absorbs water and actually extract contaminates, such as radioactive iodide, from the water itself says researchers from North Carolina State University have found.
“As we’re currently seeing in Japan, one of the major health risks posed by nuclear accidents is radioactive iodide that dissolves into drinking water. Because it is chemically identical to non-radioactive iodide, the human body cannot distinguish it – which is what allows it to accumulate in the thyroid and eventually lead to cancer,” says Dr. Joel Pawlak, associate professor of forest biomaterials.
“The material that we’ve developed binds iodide in water and traps it, which can then be properly disposed of without risk to humans or the environment.”
The new material – a combination of hemicellulose, a byproduct of forest materials, and chitosan, crustacean shells that have been crushed into a powder – not only absorbs water, but can actually extract contaminates, such as radioactive iodide, from the water itself.
This material, which forms a solid foam, has applications beyond radioactive materials. Pawlak and fellow researchers found that it has the ability to remove heavy metals – such as arsenic – from water or salt from sea water to make clean drinking water.
“In disaster situations with limited-to-no power source, desalinating drinking water is difficult, if not impossible. This foam could be brought along in such situations to clean the water without the need for electricity,” Pawlak says.
“This material could completely change the way we safeguard the world’s drinking water supply.”
The foam, which is coated on wood fibers, is used like a sponge that is immersed in water. For smaller-scale applications, the foam could be used in something like a tea bag.

On a larger scale, water could be poured through it like a filter.
Pawlak worked with NC State professor Dr. Richard Venditti on the research, which was funded by the Consortium for Plant Biotechnology Research, the N.C. Forestry Foundation and the U.S. Department of Energy.

Additional research into how the material can be used on a larger scale is currently being conducted.

“Help Japan recover its health”

World Care Civilian Emergency Relief Center of Tucson is on high alert to assist in the aftermath of a devastating 8.9 earthquake that hit Japan this morning, March 11, 2011. As aftershocks continue to hit the region, assessments of the tsunami will continue to come in over the next week. Thousands of bodies are reported to have washed ashore.

World CaWorld Care is collaborating with FEMA Region 9 to manage civilian volunteers and supply aid to affected regions if needed. Region 9 includes Hawaii, California, Arizona, Nevada, Guam, the North Mariana Islands, the Republic of Marshall Islands, Federal State of Micronesia, and American Samoa.

 

Rescue workers combed the tsunami-battered region north of Tokyo, where officials say at least 10,000 people were killed in the 8.9-magnitude earthquake and tsunami that followed it.

“It’s a scene from hell, absolutely nightmarish,” said Patrick Fuller of the International Red Cross Federation from the northeastern coastal town of Otsuchi.

Prime Minister Naoto Kan has dubbed the multiple disasters Japan’s worst crisis since World War Two and, with the financial costs estimated at up to $180 billion, analysts said it could tip the world’s third biggest economy back into recession.
World Care is collaborating with FEMA Region 9 to manage civilian volunteers and supply aid to affected regions if needed. Region 9 includes Hawaii, California, Arizona, Nevada, Guam, the North Mariana Islands, the Republic of Marshall Islands, Federal State of Micronesia, and American Samoa.

Early warning systems and FEMA evacuation plans have been very effective in Hawaii and California so that casualties and injuries caused by this disaster are prevented or minimized.

World Care encourages civilians within communities to be ready to respond when disasters strike. It is currently working in partnership with local and state government agencies in a city-wide effort to develop a disaster communications plan and training.

Fifth largest earthquake in the 20th century and the largest since the Japanese have begun taking recordings in the 18oos.  See video.

“Healthy living after radiation fallout”

“The best defense is a good offense” when it comes to living in good health and calmness despite the radiation we are surrounded with daily from x-rays, microwaves, cell towers, utility line, cell phones, electric appliances and devices and nuclear fallout.
Natural quality care for the body, calmness and peace for our mind, relationships and spirit and a one pointed focus on doing the very best for ourselves and others is the goal. Worry and fear destroys everything they touch and undermines the best of intentions to progress.
Let us commit ourselves to calmly go forward. There are many ways to build the body to protect it from the effects of radiation.

Suggested home first aid for radiation exposure

if serious see your doctor or go to the emergency services provided

First within the body if one has been exposed to radiation the radioactive particles need to be bound and excrete them from the body.

Here’s the final summary of well-known radiation detox procedures:

For detox from External Contamination from radiation:

If the radioactive exposure just happened, flush the exposed areas with copious amounts of water and clip the hair if there is excessive radioactive contamination nuclear power plant melt down or a bomb blast).

1. Wash wounds vigorously (scrub them) to make sure no radioactive contaminants can enter the body, and sometimes this is done with special chelation solutions.  (Check www.RadiationDetox.com)
2. Types of baths needed 1-3 times per week)

  • Follow with a clay baths to help remove radioactive heavy metals from the skin
  • Soak in a warm sea salt and baking soda baths (1 lb or 2.2 Km) of both sea salt and baking soda for 20 minutes then rinse with cool water.
  • Epson/Clorox baths are possible for this type of heavy metal detox as well. They are used at home for general detoxification purposes and tend to energize the body. Use 6 oz (.17 kg) Epson salts and 3 TBS (45 grams) Chlorox in warm water then rinse in cool water.
  • Bentonite or other clay baths (1 cup or )

Tp protect the body or cleans it after contamination:

After exposed to radioactive particles, the emergency room may use  EDTA chelation therapy, Prussian Blue or the use of other binding agents.

At home take Potassium iodide to help the thyroid gland block from radioiodide uptake, and follow the detox food plan above.

Spirulina, chlorella and other seaweeds

A high fiber diet, or chelating substances (pectin, alginates, …)

To Rebuild Immunity: Yeast and yeast beta glucans, 
mushrooms, 
ginseng (for energy as well) and Bee Pollen

Rebuilding the blood strategies:

Avoid sweets and sugars, and high glycemic foods like wheat

To Rebuild the Blood (Combat Anemia): 
To build the blood for the hematopoietic syndrome, beet juice, liver extract, spleen extract, alkyglycerols and cytokine factors, like Neupogen, are warranted.
You’ll also need a good (whole food if possible) multivitamin/mineral supplement for its trace minerals, folic acid, B-12, B-6, iron and other nutrients to create strong blood cells.

Fish oils: (cod liver and krill oils) can help suppress levels of proinflammatory cytokines to decrease systemic inflammation and injury new red blood cell-forming proteins. Nettle leaf extract can be helpful.
Lack of melatonin has been linked to a decrease in red blood cells and anemia, so keep a bottle of melatonin to encourage deeper sleep during stressful times and to protect the cells from the damaging effects of radioactivity.
Nettles leaf and yellow dock (and in some case red root

Homeopathic Ferrum phos 6c can help the body recover from anemia.
Rebuilding the body or building it require blood building, with quality whole raw or steamed vegetables and raw fruits, vitamins and minerals and fatty acids.

Try vegetable juicing, green powders, spirulina, chlorella, seaweeds and other easily digestable foods, especially those containing large sources of chlorophyll to build strong healthy red blood cells and oxygenate the blood.

As to specific herbs and formulations you can use, just as with homeopathy you should go by the advice of a skilled practitioner.

These are the various factors that may help with hematopoietic syndrome, and for the gastrointestinal syndrome you need to look into glutamine usage as well.

To protect and detox from radiation exposure eat foods from the list below:

Be careful to balance your foods and supplements. Do not eat only these foods.

Be mindful of energizing your foods before eating calmly.

Foods to build and clease

Miso soup

Seaweeds (high nucleotides for repair, building and detox of cells): 
spirulina, chlorella, blue greens and the algaes (kelp, etc.)

Fruits (high in beta carotene):
apples, apricots, avocado, bananas, blackberries. blueberries, cantaloupe, cherry, cranberries currants, grapes, nectarine, papaya (slightly), pineapple (slightly)

peach, watermelon

 spinach, sweet potato, turnip
squash: acorn, butternut, summer  squash

Herbs and spices: activated charcoal pills, barley grass, dandelion greens , garlic, horseradish, lecithin, mango leaf, miso soup, onions, Siberian ginseng preferable to Panax, turmeric (though not high in thiols, it  is really good at raising thiol levels), yeast extract and lecithin and bentonite (Prepare by adding 4 oz (113.4 g) of unboiled water to 1 oz. (28.35 g) clay and let it sit for  and then stir in 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of lecithin and drink once a day or as often as your practitioner recommends. Drink lots of water throughout the day 3 to 4 liters.

A potassium, calcium and mineral rich diet

Avoid sugars and sweets and wheat!

For Radiation Burns: Homeopathic remedies and herbs 
100% Aloe vera and pure lavender oil combination

Hyperbaric oxygen chambers Increase your intake of chlorophyll, green plants or powders greens if uncontaminated

Hydration from water specially structured

Special Herbs and Supplements: Thiol containing antioxidants (NAC, glutathione, alpha lipoic acid)

“Effects of radiation on living tissues”

Radiation may come from either an external source like fallout from bombs, melt down from nuclear power plant melt downs  given off into the environment both air, water and food, x-ray machine, or an internal source, such as an injected radioisotope.

How does radiation effect living tissues?
The impact of radiation on living tissue is complicated by the type of radiation and the variety of tissues.

What effect can ionizing radiation have on the cells’ chemical bonds?
The functions of living tissue are carried out by molecules, that is, combinations of different types of atoms united by chemical bonds. Some of these molecules can be quite large. The proper functioning of these molecules depends upon their composition and also their structure (shape). Altering chemical bonds may change composition or structure.

Ionizing radiation is powerful enough disrupt chemical bonding. For example, a typical ionization releases six to seven times the energy needed to break the chemical bond between two carbon atoms.[91] This ability to disrupt chemical bonds means that ionizing radiation focuses its impact in a very small but crucial area, a bit like a karate master focusing energy to break a brick. The same amount of raw energy, distributed more broadly in nonionizing form, would have much less effect. For example, the amount of energy in a lethal dose of ionizing radiation is roughly equal to the amount of thermal energy in a single sip of hot coffee.[92] The crucial difference is that the coffee’s energy is broadly distributed in the form of nonionizing heat, while the radiation’s energy is concentrated in a form that can ionize.

What is DNA?
Of all the molecules in the body, the most crucial is DNA (deoxyribose nucleic acid), the fundamental blueprint for all of the body’s structures. The DNA blueprint is encoded in each cell as a long sequence of small molecules, linked together into a chain, much like the letters in a telegram. DNA molecules are enormously long chains of atoms wound around proteins and packed into structures called chromosomes within the cell nucleus. Only a small part of this DNA needs to be read at any one time to build a specific molecule. Each cell is continually reading various parts of its own DNA as it constructs fresh molecules to perform a variety of tasks.

What effect can ionizing radiation have on DNA?
Ionizing radiation, by definition, “ionizes,” that is, it pushes an electron out of its orbit around an atomic nucleus, causing the formation of electrical charges on atoms or molecules. If this electron comes from the DNA itself or from a neighboring molecule and directly strikes and disrupts the DNA molecule, the effect is called direct action. This initial ionization takes place very quickly, in about 0.000000000000001 of a second. However, today it is estimated that about two-thirds of the damage caused by x rays is due to indirect action. This occurs when the liberated electron does not directly strike the DNA, but instead strikes an ordinary water molecule. This ionizes the water molecule, eventually producing what is known as a free radical.

A free radical reacts very strongly with other molecules as it seeks to restore a stable configuration of electrons. A free radical may drift about up to 10,000,000,000 times longer than the time needed for the initial ionization (this is still a very short time, about 0.00001 of a second), increasing the chance of it disrupting the crucial DNA molecule. This also increases the possibility that other substances could be introduced that would neutralize free radicals before they do damage.
What immediate effects can ionizing radiation have on living cells?
All of these collisions and ionizations take place very quickly, in less than a second. It takes much longer for the biological effects to become apparent. If the damage is sufficient to kill the cell, the effect may become noticeable in hours or days. Cell “death” can be of two types. First, the cell may no longer perform its function due to internal ionization; or “reproductive death” (mitotic inhibition) may occur when a cell can no longer reproduce, but still performs its other functions.
Death may also result if cell reproduction ceases in parts of the body where cells are continuously being replaced at a high rate (such as the blood cell-forming tissues and the lining of the intestinal tract).

What long-term effects can radiation have?
The effect of the radiation may not be to kill the cell, but to alter its DNA code in a way that leaves the cell alive but with an error in the DNA blueprint. The effect of this mutation will depend on the nature of the error and when it is read. Since this is a random process, such effects are now called stochastic.[100] Two important stochastic effects of radiation are cancer, which results from mutations in nongerm cells (termed somatic cells), and heritable changes, which result from mutations in germ cells (eggs and sperm).

How can ionizing radiation cause cancer?
Cancer is can be produced if radiation does not kill the cell but creates an error in the DNA blueprint. Different cells have different sensitivities to radiation thus some take longer to show its effects like bone marrow is more sensitive than skin cells to radiation-induced cancer.  If the cell’s DNA mutates it can lose control of cell division, and begins dividing uncontrollably which produces the phenomena known as cancer. This effect might not appear for many years.
Cancers induced by radiation do not differ from cancers due to other causes, so there is no simple way to measure the rate of cancer induced by radiation.

Because the cancers can occur anytime in the exposed person’s lifetime,
How can ionizing radiation produce genetic mutations?
The risk of genetic mutation is expressed in terms of the doubling dose: the amount of radiation that would cause additional mutations equal in number to those that already occur naturally from all causes, thereby doubling the naturally occurring rate of mutation.
Well, on the one hand radiation can cause genetic mutation (cell death or cancer)… it can cause illness due to mutated proteins and whatnot that cause cellular function and processes to become messed up (radiation sickness). That is radiation, by itself. Radioactive material gives off radiation. If consumed or ingested, the source of radiation would be inside the body, providing a continuous dose.

Most radioactive materials are poisonous by its very chemical nature… like uranium, cesium, which is a heavy metal… and is poisonous regardless of its isotopic properties.

And chemical isotope that has one chemical property can be consumed and utilized by the body, naturally… like the formation of cell membranes or calcium for bones. If those chemicals themselves were radioactive then when they decay, they will convert to alternative chemicals. The radiation or material itself is irrelevant in this case, but the problem arises in the fact that essential components of the body are no longer built using the proper materials.

“EWG finds chromium 6 in city H20”

Dear Compmed Readers,

Take action today!

In December, Environmental Working Group (EWG) published the first national investigation of the suspected carcinogen chromium-6 — also known as hexavalent chromium — in drinking water in 35 cities around the country. Recently, Senators Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., and Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., introduced Senate Bill 79, the Protecting Pregnant Women and Children from Hexavalent Chromium Act of 2011.

The Boxer/Feinstein bill would require the Environmental Protection Agency to act within a year to set a safe limit for chromium-6 in drinking water. Your senators need to hear from you today that clean, safe drinking water is crucial.

Click here TODAY to tell your senators to co-sponsor the Protecting Pregnant Women and Children from Hexavalent Chromium Act of 2011, introduced by Senators Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein.

EWG supporters like you submitted tap water samples from their communities. This groundbreaking, people-powered report detected chromium-6 in 31 of the 35 city water supplies tested. Even though this report stirred controversy, our findings were confirmed by a number of water utilities’ own testing. Within hours of its release, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson announced a new plan to help local utilities assess chromium-6 in drinking water nationwide. That’s a good first step. But EPA must go further.

Last week, I testified on our chromium-6 report before the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, chaired by Senator Boxer. And I am going to tell you what I told them: we were heartened by and support EPA’s announcement following the release of our report and by its decision to regulate perchlorate, but it is not enough. The Protecting Pregnant Women and Children from Hexavalent Chromium Act of 2011 will make sure there is a safe legal limit on chromium-6 in drinking water.

I have had the opportunity to testify in front of Congress many times, but this was the most gratifying. I was able to stand with the EPA and others concerned with ensuring that all Americans have access to safe, clean drinking water. This hearing — and this bill — are a direct result of EWG’s research. “Keep on doing what you’re doing,” Senator Boxer said to me in her concluding comments at the hearing.

We need to keep the momentum going. I’m counting on you to help us — and everyone else who drinks water.

Click here TODAY to tell your senators to co-sponsor the Protecting Pregnant Women and Children from Hexavalent Chromium Act of 2011.

Safe, clean drinking water is vital to EWG supporters like you. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by. Take action today.

Sincerely,

Ken Cook
President, EWG Action Fund

“Children increasing risk of EMR on brain and body health”

Children are at the greatest risk from the thermal effects of electromagnetic radiation

as emitted from cell phone towers, cell phones and all objects that have current flowing through them.

Why?

They have thinner skulls, and their brains and bodies are growing rapidly. Doctors from the United Kingdom have issued warnings urging children under 16 not to use cell phones, to reduce their exposure to radio frequency (RF) radiation.

Singapore in 2001, there was huge coverage in all the newspapers because 20-year-olds throughout the city were having heart attacks and they couldn’t figure out why. Then, someone figured out it was because it was the fashion at that time for young people to wear their cell phones on decorative cords around their necks. This meant that their cell phones were hanging right next to – you guessed it – their heart. So a warning went out in all the local newspapers, telling kids not to wear their cell phones on these cords. But funnily enough, no one I’ve spoken to in Canada (or the U.S.) ever heard about that. And no one thought about warning people not to wear their cell phones clipped to their belt, or in their pocket.

EM radiation carries energy and momentum that may be imparted to matter with which it interacts. The basic structure of matter involves charged particles bound together in many different ways. When electromagnetic radiation is incident on matter, it causes the charged particles to oscillate and gain energy. The ultimate fate of this energy depends on the situation. It could be immediately re-radiated and appear as scattered, reflected, or transmitted radiation. It may also get dissipated into other microscopic motions within the matter, coming to thermal equilibrium and manifesting itself as thermal energy in the material.

Cell phone companies are paying churches and schools monthly fees to allow cell phone towers to be built near the building, either in the open like what is going in across the street from my home and the neighborhood school or the companies may disguise the tower under a fake rock, in an artificial palm tree or saguaro cactus.

Why are schools and churches allowing this potential health hazard, because funds are tight and they need the money.
