I’m really worried about the levels of radiation and the situation in Japan. The sad thing is there are already high levels of radiation in our world–higher than they were ten years ago at any rate. They come from increased use of cellphones, wireless networks, electrical equipment, medical equipment and other things.
Over the past ten years or so, levels of radiation from the depleted uranium weapons used in massive amounts in Iraq and Afghanistan have dispersed into the atmosphere, into the earth and into our food. I finally clued into this when I was at the laundromat and heard the local TV station doing their best to ‘manage the panic’ the lady was poo-pooing the idea that anyone needed to be worried about the miniscule amounts of radiation from Fukushima and mentioned the amounts were about as much as a CT scan.
That gave me no comfort since I had just read an article discussing how we were on the verge of a cancer epidemic (aren’t we already in one?) as a result of overuse of CT scans.
Unfortunately, the mass media has a bad track record with informing the public of what is really happening when it comes to nuclear disasters. We have already seen this happen with Three Mile Island, Cherynobl, and even how safe living near nuclear plants really isn’t. Not only that but low levels of toxins are often just as bad for you as high levels (think about dioxins), so the arguments that are being thrown around to ‘manage the public’s panic’ are no comfort. I have posted a video at the end of this article which is an interview with Leuren Moret who is whistleblower about the dangers of radiation–check it out–pretty horrific stuff….
After my post about which foods are good to detoxify our bodies from radiation with a focus on miso, I decided to follow my own advice and start eating miso. Unfortunately being on the GAPS diet, miso is one of the foods we can’t eat–being made with soybeans and some kind of grain, usually rice or barley. I was hoping the fermentation process would have made it digestible for us, but unfortunately that wasn’t the case and my digestive issues started acting up again, so I had to find some other options…
I had a rough week last week, I will admit, I was sick Wednesday and Thursday and again on Saturday and Sunday. It really sets me back–I’m hypersensitive in general and my gut issues have made me even more so. I have noticed that having a damaged intestinal tract has made me extremely sensitive to industrial chemicals as well as electro-magnetic frequencies and radiation. For example when I was in really poor health I would get ringing in my ears which I don’t usually have, I also couldn’t handle being on cordless phones or cellphones. As a craniosacral therapist, I have also learned to tune in to frequencies we generally don’t notice. As a result I can’t help but wonder if I was picking up some of the radiation from the nuclear plants in Japan. I was out in the rain on Friday afternoon when reports of radiation were being charted in California. I used to like the rain but lately I am scared to go out in it….”
