Preparation for Radiation Fallout


PREPARATIONS FOR RADIATION FALLOUT [Report from Turner Radio Network]

1) Keep up-to-date on developments via the Internet. The mass-media is not reliable because like the government, they want to avoid any mass panic.  While that is a noble goal, withholding information as was done previously when the Fukushima disaster struck in March, 2011, allowed people to get exposed to radiation which could kill them now - or years from now.  TRN believes people have a right to know, so as to make an informed decisions about whether to protect themselves or not. 

2) Go immediately (RIGHT NOW) to your local home improvement or hardware store for rolls of plastic, Duct tape, WIDE masking tape and  a couple rolls of self-adhesive weather stripping. You want to have a roll or two of the type of plastic that is used by painters; (the kind they use to cover your floor and furniture in case paint drips) and a roll or two of Duct tape.  Don't deploy this yet, but if the radiation arrives, you'll HAVE what you need and won't be battling a million other people trying to get some when the danger actually hits.  You can use the plastic and duct tape things to cover the insides of your windows, doors, AC electric plugs, light switches, bathroom exhaust vents, stove exhaust vents, -- even ceiling vents, to TRY to keep out radiation particles once you know they're arriving.  (NOTE: this may not be 100% effective.  Houses have loads of nooks and crannies which allow air from the outside to get inside.  If you cover the largest ones, you're at least giving yourself and family a fighting chance.)  These supplies are available immediately at: Home Depot Lowes Walmart TrueValue Ace Hardware and many other retail stores.

3) If radiation is identified as heading toward your area or has arrived in your area:
a) Cut sheets from the roll of plastic, large enough to cover your windows, window frames/woodwork, sliding glass doors, doggie doors, etc., and do so on the INSIDE of your house.  Once the sheets are cut to size, secure that plastic to your inside walls using Duct tape.  You want to cover things inside not outside so the weather doesn't cause the plastic to make noise or perhaps rip off during high wind, rain or snow. The duct tape should cover 100% of the edge of the plastic, making a good seal AROUND the window, sliding glass doors, doggie doors, etc.  It is important to note that the plastic should go AROUND the woodwork on the inside the window/door and NOT merely around the inner perimeter of the window itself.  Gaps between the window assemblies and exterior walls might not be air-tight; especially in older homes where the silicone weather sealant around windows/doors is worn or in earthquake prone areas where the shaking has loosened-up window/door seals.  This will help seal out radiation particles in the air so they shouldn't be able to get inside your home.  Those of you in private homes should do this sealing on EVERY opening to the outside (doors, windows, vents) on every floor of your home, from the basement to the attic.  Those of you who do not have basements, will usually find vents along the slab foundation which are designed to naturally ventilate under the house.  SEAL THESE from the outside as best you can.  Similarly, those of you without full attics, will usually see vents of some type for the roof rafter area. SEAL THESE as best you can too. (PLEASE don't fall off any roof or off any ladder. Be careful!)

b) Cut smaller sheets from the roll of plastic to cover electrical outlets and  light switches inside the house. Those outlets and switches are breaks in the walls to the inner structure of the house.  The inner structure gets naturally ventilated under the eaves and awnings of the house.  While the air flow is not generally a lot, it IS there;  you want to seal it out.  As with the windows, use Duct tape to hold the plastic a full inch or two around the entire perimeter of the light switch our electrical outlets.

c) Cut sheets from the roll of plastic to cover vents: Bathrooms, stoves. Remember, this is just a TEMPORARY situation and the radiation will usually blow-over or dilute within a week or so.  While none of us likes the smell in the bathroom after it is used, it's better to put up with that for a few days than have radiation in there from the vents.  BE VERY CAREFUL IF YOU CHOOSE TO COVER A STOVE EXHAUST VENT; YOU DON'T WANT THE PLASTIC GOING ON FIRE IF YOU'RE COOKING.

d) DO NOT use duct tape or plastic over your main entry/exit door. If, God forbid, there's a fire, you want to be able to exit fast and not be battling duct tape to get out.  Instead, maybe check to see the weatherstripping around the door is in good shape or at worst, add a layer of new weatherstripping to what's already there.  The bottom of the door sill can be covered with a rolled-up towel if necessary,to prevent drafts at the bottom of the door.

NOTE: Duct tape, when removed, may damage the surface of the wall it was stuck to.  It may peel off paint or even the paper covering of Sheetrock when you remove it.  If this is a concern, you may wish to utilize WIDE masking tape instead.  We do not recommend masking tape, but it may be viable if you are concerned about peeling off the duct tape when the emergency is ended.

4)  Get a minimum "NIOSH N100-certified" filter mask for yourself and each member of your family. NIOSH stands for National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) which is an agency of the US Government.  They rate protective gear for various industries and the lowest possible level of mask with any hope at all of filtering out radiation particles must be rated by NIOSH as N100.   The masks cost about $30 on Ebay and look like the one in the image at left below.
SERIOUS NOTE: There are TIME CONSTRAINTS on the use of the N100-rated mask in a hostile environment.  Having such a mask is not a license to go out and have fun.  It is a limited mask, with limited capability for a limited time period, to help protect you in this type of emergency.

Of course, you can go all-out and get some super-mask for several hundred dollars, but the minimum you need is an N100 rated mask.

Whatever you do, don't try to get "cute" and figure you can "get away with" a mask that is rated N95 or lower.  An N95 mask will NOT filter out the tiny particles involved here and you will be fooling yourself if you buy any mask rated less than N100.

It is important to understand that a "hospital mask" normally used by Doctors, WILL NOT PROTECT YOU AT ALL from radioactive particles.  The particles are so small, they can fit right through a typical surgical mask used by doctors.  If you breathe-in any "hot Particles" of radiation, they will wreak havoc on your lungs and cause very rapid deterioration of your health. Cancers, Leukemias, Hemorrhaging . . . . you get the idea.

5) About your job and going to work during a radiation emergency . . . .
Those of us with jobs can't simply call-in and tell the boss we can' come to work today because we're afraid of the radiation. So start discussing this situation with your bosses first thing TODAY. See if the company as a whole is willing to develop some type of strategy to deal with taking time off due to a radioactive plume coming onto the west coast of north America from Japan, making things unsafe for a few days.  Start the conversation.  Don't wait until things spiral out of control and people are panicking.

6) If you HAVE to go out, clothing will get contaminated; be prepared to protect yourself
Wear an NIOSH N100 mask at all times when you are outside your house during the plume's arrival and presence.  Yes, you're probably going to feel like a jerk; especially when the uninformed, the ignorant and those "in denial" about the real danger, start poking fun at you.  Just remember you'll have the last laugh.

A VERY helpful tool for this situation is a disposable TYVEK suit and booties.  You can get them at most home improvement stores and on EBAY for about $8.Tyvek coveralls are one-piece garments, usually white, commonly worn by mechanics, painters, installation installers, and laboratory and cleanroom workers where a disposable, one-time use coverall is needed.   They are also used for some light HAZMAT applications, such as asbestos and radiation work but do not provide the protection of a full hazmat suit.  Wear it to work, when you get inside, take it off right at the doorway and throw it away in a garbage can near the door.  It's done. Don't touch it again. Then go wash your hands and face to wash away whatever may have accumulated on them.  These suits are also available at the retailers listed above (Home Depot, Lowes, etc.).

If you simply refuse to walk outside dressed-up like a Bunny, you must realize that Clothing worn while you are outside will have contamination on it.  This is unavoidable. Once you've been outside and enter your job, remove your outerwear and place it as close to the door as you can. You may want to pack a change of clothing in a tightly closed gym bag, to change-into at work. Having a change of clothes for when you get to work might not be a bad idea.  The change of clothes ought to include FOOTWEAR.

When you're outside, your footwear is going to be picking up the contamination that fell onto the ground. This is unavoidable.  What you CAN do, is take those shoes off once you get where you're going, and thereby not track the radiation into wherever you are.  You may want to get "Disposable Plastic Shoe Covers" to help avoid at least SOME of the radiation getting onto your shoes.  These shoe covers are cheap, and you throw them away as soon as you get inside your destination.

For Eye protection, we suggest a cheap pair of Swimmer's Goggles.  They vary in cost from 99 cents to about $10 on Ebay - or your local sporting goods store. The purpose of this is to prevent radioactive particles from landing on your eyeballs.  Swimmer's goggles will fit the bill pretty well and you can wash them off once you get to where  you're going, and use the goggles again the next time you go out.  Radiation washes off with soap and water.

7) IN AND OUT OF YOUR HOUSE
The same procedures listed above for going to and from work, should be used by you and your family when going to/from home.  After all, you don't want to bring radiation into your house on your clothes, shoes etc, or walk-it-through the whole house once you arrive.  Put a coat rack just-inside the entry door.  Put a shoe rack too.  First thing everyone does when they walk in the door - ditch the outerwear and shoes right then and there.  YOU DO NOT want to be tracking radiation into and all over your house, then spewing it up into the air when you vacuum and it comes out with the vacuum exhaust air.  You want to stop the radiation as close to the door as you can.  If you prefer, put a clothes hamper -- LINED WITH A PLASTIC LAWN-AND-LEAF-SIZE BAG just inside the front door and change your clothes the moment you get in.  When the hamper is full, seal-up the bag, take it to the washer and wash the radiation away.

8) Wash obsessively during the emergency
External radioactive material washes off with soap and water.  When you consider that everything you touch and all the air that touches you OUTSIDE can be contaminated, it is important to WASH exposed body parts (face & hands) with soap and water often.  When you get home from your daily routine and get out of potentially contaminated clothing, take a shower before anything else.  A SHOWER, NOT A BATH.  Showering will allow the radiation to fall off you and go down the drain whereas a bath could possible allow the radioactive materials to cling to your body as you leave the bathwater.   Sadly, this brings us to one, final, MAJOR, MAJOR, MAJOR problem: Water comes from reservoirs and reservoirs are out in the open; radiation has and will continue tofall into our water supplies.

LOCAL OFFICIALS CAUGHT DELIBERATELY CONCEALING RADIATION IN DRINKING WATER

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) lists the maximum safe levels and government-approved methods for removing, radiation in water.  Yet according to KHOU-TV in Texas, local and state officials in that state deliberately conspired for YEARS to alter the results from their municipal water tests, todeliberately CONCEAL high levels of radiation in municipal water!  If local and state officials in one state have already been caught deliberately concealing radiation in water, can any rational person believe they aren't doing it now in other states -- or won't do it (again) in the future? You can read that story and watch the KHOU-TV news video HERE.

In fact, KHOU-TV found that the radiation in local water was so severe, that it made the underground water pipes and the water heaters inside homes radioactive;  in some cases 11 times more radioactive than allowable by law!  The pipes and water heaters were so radioactive that none of those things could be scrapped in a junk yard!  You can read this separate KHOU-TV story and watch the video HERE.

Given the irrefutable proof above we suggest equipping your sinks and shower head(s) with a water filter.  Now, getting radiation out of water is NOT simple.  Paper filters do nothing in that regard.

Granular Activated Carbon filters have shown SOME ability to remove SOME types of radiation.  Reverse-Osmosis has shown good ability to remove other types of radiation.  ION Exhange is the final method which has shown good ability to remove radiation.  Yet getting all these types of filters in ONE system is not easy and it is considerably expensive.  As such, we suggest that having a filter of some type is better than having no filter at all.  Of course, once the filters become saturated with pollutants, they're useless, so expect to change-out those filters PRECISELY in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendation or even more frequently.  Yes, this will cost a few bucks, but this is an extraordinary situation calling for extraordinary response.  What good is all the safety you exercise with the steps above, if you then eat, drink and bathe-in contaminated water?

The Atoms are Coming! The Atoms are Coming!


POSTERS . . . . TOXGAS.com . . . . PRODUCTS


I got thinking about the Cold War in the 1950s and early 60’s, when the US government mobilized a nation to prepare for the “Big One” that never came. We all learned how to climb under our desk at school. Our parents joined the Civil Defense to stand on top of the local town’s bank buildings and scan the skies with binoculars to look for Russian bombers.

Now, we have a nuclear threat to our country that is potentially greater. Yet the giant government and media machines are hard at work to coat it with invisible paint and make it disappear. Low radiation. No threat. Not harmful. These are the same people who tell us it is OK to swim in the Gulf. How do the families of the dead victims of the Gulf’s Blue Plague respond the government’s and media’s current spin to assuage the public’s fears?

Contrary to the government’s and media’s spin, Dr. Mark Sircus and other professional medical people tell us “there is no such thing as safe radiation” and “one particle of plutonium in your lung can cause cancer.”

How can our poor little pea brains handle such contrary points of view?

In the the 50’s the government taught us to climb under our desk for a few minutes in a drill. Now, the government wants us to be ostriches. Stick your head in the ground and don’t look up.

The spinsters want to make it seem that we live with “background radiation” all the time and it is OK. No, it kills! Why do dermatologists tell us to cover up outdoors in the sun? How many human beings are dying right now from melanoma they got from “background radiation?”

Doesn’t anyone want to tackle the qualitative differences between radiation from different kinds of radioactive elements? Can the EPA or Wolf Blitzer tell me it a brick or rock gives off the same kind of radiation as a uranium fuel rod?

Here is my question: would the government of Japan or US tell us, if they found radioactive isotopes of plutonium in the seawater? They like reporting on iodine isotopes with half lives of a few hours or days. When the devil’s sperm, namely plutonium 239, shows up in the radioactive concoction floating off Fukushima, will his handlers release the news?

Government advice: Avoid bricks and rocks, but don’t worry about the radioactive iodine and cesium falling on your neighborhood. And plutonium, don’t ask.

Understanding Radiation is Not Easy


POSTERS . . . . TOXGAS.com . . . . TEACHING AIDS

Understanding the basics of radiation is not easy. With the media full of news about the failed nuclear power plant at Fukushima Japan, we are all confronted with the daunting challenge of trying to make sense out of what we see on TV and read in newspapers and blogs.

I created this chart Your Guide to Radiation Sources and Doses to provide a quick reference to the comparative intensity of radiation sources and doses. The units of measurement to describe the potency of radiation gets tricky right off the bat. This chart uses both the United States system and the metric system, making it easy to cross check with measurements you see or hear in the media. Rems and millirems are units of radiation used in the United States. Sieverts and millisieverts are units used in the metric system. You see them in the chart right next to each other.

The chart places the most potentially dangerous sources and doses of radiation at the top. At the bottom of the chart are the more common sources of radiation that we all encounter on a regular basis in our daily lives, no matter where we live on the plant.

The chart is a compilation of educational, scientific and governmental publications. Sometimes they do not agree in detail among themselves. Editorial decisions are necessary to round out the slight discrepancies.

Low Level versus High Level Radiation


There is no safe level of radiation exposure.

Jeff Patterson, former president of Physicians for Social Responsibility


It is the inability to see the effects of chronic,
 low level toxicities on human health that has been,
 and remains, our greatest failing as intelligent beings.

Dr. Boyd Haley


A growing body of animal research suggests to some scientists that even minute traces of some chemicals, always assumed to be biologically insignificant, can affect such processes as gene activation and the brain development of newborns.

WSJ quoted by Dr. Mark Sircus blog


An especially striking finding: It appears that some substances may have effects at the very lowest exposures that are absent at higher levels.

WSJ quoted by Dr. Mark Sircus blog


The new science of low-dose exposure is challenging centuries of accepted wisdom about toxic substances and rattling the foundation of environmental law.

WSJ quoted by Dr. Mark Sircus blog


There is no safe level of mercury, and no one
 has actually shown that there is a safe level.

Dr. Lars Friberg, Chief adviser to WHO on mercury safety


There is no safe level of radiation.

Dr. Mark Sircus Low Level Toxicity


Children and unborn babies most at risk of possibly developing cancer from low toxicity.

Dr. Mark Sircus Low Level Toxicity


Inhaling or ingesting only one radioactive particle of plutonium can cause cancer.

Dr. Mark Sircus Blog


Will the radiation spread?” asks one headline. Radiation always spreads is the answer. 
It is in its very nature to do so.

Questions for Government, Nuclear Experts and Media

Questions for Government, Nuclear Experts and Media
From Dan Youra, author of RadiationSurvivor.com


I have a few questions for you government officials, nuclear experts and thousands of reporters throughout the world concerning your daily reports on radioactivity blowing out of the exploded nuclear reactors in Fukushima, Japan.

I want to be upfront about my self interest here. I am one of the canaries sniffing the air and sipping the water at the entrance to the mine on the upper, lefthand corner of the lower, forty-eight United States. Whereas, Alaska and Hawaii, a few thousand miles to the north and west, are early warning states, Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula, where I live, regularly gets the first whiff of weather from Japan to make landfall on the contiguous United States.

You officials, experts and reporters drum it into our brains that the levels of radioactivity from the world’s most damaged nuclear complex are low, tiny, minuscule, safe, not harmful to humans, below acceptable limits and within safety margins.

QUESTION: At what point precisely will we know when the radioactivity levels have moved from your low and safe levels to the not-so-low and not-so-safe levels?

We, John Q and Jane Q Public, get your point that everyday we are bombarded by, what you call, benign background radiation from bricks, microwave ovens and stars.

QUESTION: Dr. Gupta, are you trying to tell us that breathing a tiny spec of uranium into our lungs is not as dangerous to our health as sniffing a brick of your benign background radiation?

We hear you say that background radiation doesn’t hurt us, but my dermatologist tells me to cover my body and wear my baseball cap when I am outdoors in the background radiation?

QUESTION: Dr. Regina, according to the Surgeon General’s office how many human beings get skin cancer from the sun each year and, thus, die from background radiation?

Pardon me for pointing out that the EPA hasn’t been real clear on the cumulative nature of radiation. I’m learning that it sneaks in through my nose and lodges in my lungs. It gurgles into my gut. It pours through my pores and all accumulates into potentially lethal doses.

QUESTION: Ms. Jackson, at what point do all your low, tiny, minuscule, safe, not harmful, acceptable, within limits accumulate in my body to “Woops! too much, too late, too bad?” Would two months of "tiny" equal too late? Five months? Five years?

You report that the nuclear mess may take years or decades to clean up? I heard one of your experts project that you’ll need 50 to 100 years to clean this up.

QUESTION: Would a few decades of low, minuscule amounts of radioactive particles accumulate in a child’s body to equal too much, too late?

Please forgive us not-so-educated readers and viewers for being a bit unfamiliar with the meanings of the many scientific terms you use to measure the levels of radiation.

QUESTION: Mr. Holdren, is there anyone among you who is a Jargon Czar, who can explain the esoteric world of radiation measurement to us: Rems, millirems, Sieverts (Sv), milliSieverts, microSierverts, Roentgen (R), Gray (Gy), Rad, Curie (Ci), millicurie, microcurie, picocurie, becquerel (Bq), coulomb/kilogram (C/kg), microcoulombs/kilogram (┬ÁC/kg), Common Units and SI units?

Officials at Fukushima’s wrecked reactors report that radiation levels in the waste water are 1,000 milleSieverts. A Wall Street Journal article reports that the recording devices used to monitor the radiation at the plant only go up to 1,000 milleSieverts.

QUESTION: Mr. TEPCO, if you were to travel to the sun with my backyard thermometer that goes up to 100 degrees F to measure the temperature of the sun, how hot will you tell me the sun is? 100 degrees F, right? So, how much higher above 1,000 milleSieverts is the radiation really? Can you really answer this, I mean REALLY. And, whatever, how do you what's safe? You don’t know, do you? How do you know what’s safe? You’re guessing, I mean, hoping, right?

We read your reports one day that sea water is 750 times more radioactive than normal, then 7,500 times beyond safe, then 75,000 times off the charts. We hear you tell us that these levels are safe. Are you surprised that we are all confused now and that residents of Tokyo have begun demonstrating against nuclear power?

QUESTION: Mr. Prime Minister, could you please tell us what level of radioactivity is NOT SAFE? 750,000 times normal? 7.5 million? 7.5 billion? If the radiation gets to 7.5 billion, is the government going to raise the safe level to 7.5 trillion times? 

You can’t blame us – the public – for being a bit confused about how you determine the line between low and high, safe and dangerous, acceptable and intolerable. Exposure to the nuclear death rays in the air is one thing, absorbing the particles which emit them is entirely another dimension to the problem, which nobody is explaining very well.

QUESTION: Can you tell us how many Curies we can breathe, how many coulomb/kilogram we can eat and how many Rems or Sieverts we can absorb through our skin before we are cursed with radiation poisoning and cast into a fate of painful, nuclear death?
Doubtless, the half life thing about radioactive particles is a little tricky to grasp. We hear you assure us that Iodine-131 degrades very fast and disappears in a few days, whereas plutonium hangs out for a few billion years.

QUESTION: Larry, What is the difference between the death caused by a quick dying ion, for example Iodine-131, and a slow dying ion, say plutonium 238?
Fukushima operators can’t find a safe place to store the radioactive waste water. The temptation is great to dump it into the ocean and sure enough, that is what they are doing. Your reporting assures us that the ocean is a big place and so the radioactivity will dissipate rapidly and its effects will be harmless on sea life and humans.

QUESTION: Brian, what does General Electric tell NBC to tell you to tell us about the safety of the Pacific Ocean? Since Chernobyl and Three Mile Island were not near an ocean, how do you know for sure what nuclear fallout does to the ocean? Where does a particle of radioactive plutonium hang out for its first billion years? If it gets inside a salmon and two years later I eat the salmon, will it keep me alive for a billion years? Just asking.

A few years ago the scare about toxic mercury taught us how mercury concentrates in tuna as it elevates up the food chain. It is not a difficult leap to understand how radioactive atoms behave in a similar manner, potentially concentrating a more deadly punch in a fillet of salmon than in a microscopic plankton.


QUESTION: Christiane, when you assure us gullible readers and viewers that radioactive seawater is not harmful to humans, you mean before it travels up the food chain, right? What about after?

During the 1950s the United States government attempted to educate us dolts about the threat of a Russian atomic bomb. Civil Defense forces in every community warned us citizens of The Big One. As kids, we were drilled on how to dive under our desks at school. Our families were encouraged to build bomb shelters in our basements.
QUESTION: Mr. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, why is there no effort to educate us on the potential threat of the effects of this Japanese blowout? If the Fukushima complex were to hit “criticality” (that is what you call it, right?) would an atomic chain reaction blow hundreds of tons of radioactive material high into the atmosphere? Wouldn’t it rain down all over the northern hemisphere? If a few pounds of plutonium can cause millions of cancer cases, how many cases would a ton cause?



Mr. United Nations, Sir, we are numbed by all your assurances that the Fukushima meltdown is only threatening to the people living within the evacuation zone a few miles from the reactors.

QUESTION: What will happen when the Nuclear Dragon’s bad breath forces the evacuation of the Northern Hemisphere? Should we all evacuate to UN Plaza in New York?

Soon the media may have to speculate on a link between the blown up nuclear plant in Japan and radioactive rainwater in California. Can you hear Wolf intoning, “Maybe there’s a potential, unproven, possible, alleged, hypothetical, non collaborated, connection between radioactive milk in Spokane and the cracked containment vessel in Japan?”

QUESTION: Why is the Fukushima Big One any less real or less threatening than a commie attack in the 50’s? What should we do when bubbles of nuclear gas are falling onto our heads? Do we dive under our desks?



To my media friends: you like reporting on the cute, little Iodine isotopes with half lives of a few hours or days. Reporting on premature births of deformed babies in west coast hospitals won’t be as fun.

QUESTION: When the devil’s sperm, namely radioactive plutonium, shows up in American women’s wombs and deformed bodies of American babies, will the devil’s handlers release the news to you and will you tell us?

Until the evening news can show photographs of deformed newborns in America’s maternity wards and roll video of children who are not allowed to go outdoors, the Nuclear Concentration Camp won't be real.

QUESTION: How long do you think it will take for the government-science-media cabal to crack and admit that the Fail Safe limit had been breached within the first fews days of the Fukushima explosion?

We’d all like to believe that government officials, scientists, reporters and editors are actual human beings with beating hearts that are capable of experiencing compassion for others.

QUESTION: If this genie can’t be stuck back into the bottle and it kills a few million people, including possibly your own family member or friend, would you feel that you should accept any of the responsibility, the blame, for having failed to alert us in time "to dive under our desks"?



Mr. Bill, you’ve already cost us four weeks of precious, lost time. It is precisely in this early stage, when people need accurate, helpful information to prepare themselves for what is potentially coming. We don’t need condescending pabulum.

What we need is for you to use your giant media machine to help people learn how to defend ourselves against radioactive fallout. We want to know how to prepare our bodies to fight the Ion Invasion.

QUESTION: Why don’t you help direct people to information that can save lives? Why don’t you help people become radiation survivors rather than radiation targets?

We planetary plebs need help. We need vital, life-saving information RIGHT NOW! We watch you showcase pink-clad, cancer survivors at rallies on evening news shows. How about giving us a hand, so that more of us can don the pink armor of victory and attend some of your rallies as Radiation Survivors.

QUESTION: Please, can you urge people to go to RadiationSurvivor.com to find helpful information to reduce their risks of nuclear exposure and to increase their chances of being radiation survivors? Go Pink!

I look forward to your answers. Leave a comment on this page or email me at dan [at] youra[dot]com

Thank you,

How To Survive Nuclear Radiation

Dan Youra has a track record of helping people survive threatening gases in the environment. In April 2010 this northwest author created a website to help residents of the Gulf Coast learn how to survive toxic gases bubbling up from BP's blown out wellhead.

As editor of the Alcohol Distiller's Manual for Gasohol and Spirits, Youra is trained in industrial applications and potentially lethal effects of toxic gases.

In response to the radiation venting out of the blown out nuclear reactors in Fukushima, Japan, Youra has now launched a website to help residents of the northern hemisphere learn survival techniques.

Youra promotes his website, Radiation Survivor, as "a source of hope". Youra says, "RadiationSurvivor.com is designed to empower people with knowledge that there are actions that they can take to increase their odds of beating the nuclear fallout."

The website builds on five cornerstones of defense: Safety, Attitude, Preparation, Life Style and Treatments. Youra ties these into facts he developed for the Gulf Coast oil spill at ToxGas.com and he incorporates social networking on his blog BlowOutBlog.info.

Youra urges people to follow the Boy Scout motto, "Be Prepared." He adds, "Whether the threat is imminent or far off, weak or robust, local or global, contrived or real, I am offering proven, healthy treatments to fight radiation and win."

Youra developed his website, guided by three principles: There is no such thing as a safe level of nuclear radiation. It is never too early to start preparing the body to fight the radiation, and the properly treated body can survive the radiation.

The website features the work of doctors such as Dr. Mark Sircus, who offers techniques to build up the body's immune system with diet and healthy treatments for cleansing toxins out of the body. Ideas include stocking up on baking soda and clay to use in baths to draw toxins out of the body.

Youra claims that his goal is to offer hope to counteract the depressing news of nuclear radiation invading the air we breath. "I offer hope to the individual, hope to the mom to encourage her kids and hope for a teacher to pass on to a class."

This webmaster is not new to nuclear issues. He wrote about nuclear disarmament and nuclear non proliferation in the 1960s, when he worked at the United Nations in New York, where he was managing editor of the foreign policy journal Current Thought on Peace and War. He has a BA degree in international studies from University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. He completed graduate school courses at University of Michigan and The Ohio State University.

In the 1950s school children were taught to climb under their desks during air raid drills in preparation for an atomic attack from Russia. The response to the current threat includes behavior such as wearing a hat with a vizor, when outside, and removing shoes at the door. Youra's website offers suggestions from experts to supplement a diet with higher doses of vitamin C, increase consumption of herbs such as rosemary and fortify the body with baking soda.

According to Dan Youra, "The highest probability of survival goes to the healthiest body that can fight off the nuclear isotopes attacking us by land, sea and air." Youra is chairman of the board of directors at JC MASH medical clinics on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State.

Website for Radiation Survivor

The Radiation Survivor website is designed to empower people with knowledge, information and HOPE that there are things that all of us can do to face the prospects of nuclear fallout head on. Whether the threat is imminent or far off, weak or robust, local or global, contrived or real, I am offering proven, healthy treatments to fight the radiation and win.

I'm building on the five cornerstones of Safety, Attitude, Preparation, Life Style and Treatments. I tie into the facts at ToxGas.com and the social interaction on the BlowOutBlog.

Much of the substance of the site is an explication of Dr. Mark Sircus' work in building up the body's immune system with diet and healthy protocols for cleansing toxins out of the body in order to be able to withstand the onslaught of the nuclear legions.

In the midst of this massive outpouring of radiation from the blownout reactors at Fukushima, and the likely scenario of much more to continue pouring out for years to come, I am guided by the following precepts:

1. There is no such thing as a safe level of nuclear radiation.
2. It is never too early to start preparing the body to fight the radiation.
3. The properly treated body can survive the radiation.

I am trying to offer every bit of hope that I can, hope that the individual can do something to fight this beast on a personal level, hope that a mom and dad can encourage their kids, hope that a teacher can pass on to his or her class, hope that a boss can share with his or her crew. The urgency of this moment is calling us to be healthy, healthier, and the healthiest we can be. If, in the face of the potentially deadly radiation, the survival of the individual is in the balance, and it is, than the highest probability of survival goes to the healthiest body that can fight off the isotopes attacking by land, sea and air.

The website RadiationSurvivor.com is packed with useful information.

Radiation Survival Guide


POSTERS . . . . RadiationSurvivor.com . . . . TEACHING AIDS

I am focusing my battle against nuclear fallout under the banner of "Radiation Survivor" as you can see on my website RadiationSurvivor.com.

There are plenty of other web sites documenting the physics, news, commentary, speculation, politics and conspiracies bubbling up around Japan's Fukushima nuclear blowout.

My goal is to empower people with knowledge, information, testimonials and HOPE that there are things that all of us can do to face the fallout head on. Whether the threat is imminent or far off, weak or robust, local or global, contrived or real, I am offering proven, healthy treatments to fight the radiation and win.

I'll leave it up to other web sites to point fingers and determine which way the winds are blowing. It is not my role to judge who's got it right regarding the minimums, limits and thresholds of radiation dangers.

In the midst of this massive outpouring of radiation from the blownout reactors at Fukushima, and the likely scenario of much more to continue pouring out for years to come, I am guided by the following precepts:

1. There is no such thing as a safe level of nuclear radiation.
2. It is never too early to start preparing the body to fight the radiation.
3. The properly treated body can survive the radiation.

I have become convinced that almost everyone is freaked out, panicked, scared, despondent or angry about this threat, some more than others, and some with a layer of resignation, disbelief or denial papering over their internal turmoil.

I am trying to offer every bit of hope that I can, hope that the individual can do something to fight this beast on a personal level, hope that a mom and dad can encourage their kids, hope that a teacher can pass on to his or her class, hope that a boss can share with his or her crew. The urgency of this moment is calling us to be healthy, healthier, and the healthiest we can be. If, in the face of the potentially deadly radiation, the survival of the individual is in the balance, and it is, than the highest probability of survival goes to the healthiest body that can fight off the isotopes attacking by land, sea and air.

Building upon the foundation of research I assembled into the websites I did for the Gulf oil well blowout, the links to CDC, NIH, EPA, the inventory of survival books and cleaning treatments, it is a short step to filling in the basics of radiation survival.

The website RadiationSurvivor.com is packed with useful information.

I shall gladly accept any recommendations or referrals you suggest or pass my way and I encourage you to share this site with your family and friends.

POSTERS . . . . RadiationSurvivor.com . . . . TEACHING AIDS

Dan Youra created the "Canary in the Gulf" to warn residents of toxic gases from the blowout of the BP oil well. Now with the eruption of irradiated fallout coming out of Japan's blownout nuclear reactors, Dan suited up the "Nuclear Canary" to watch for dangerous radiation and help warn the millions of "downwinders" of the threatening clouds of nuclear peril headed their way.
