Radiation, Thyroid and Seaweed

Given what is happening within the world today, I wanted to make sure as many people as possible knew this and would like you to pass it on.

Radiation is always around us now. Whether it is from cell phones, wireless phones,computers, light bulbs, anything that is plugged in. We are also exposed to radiation from the sun, more so when we fly during the day. And now, as the earth breaksdown, our nuclear plants, with their dirty energy, leaks into the atmosphere and our water systems. We are being bombarded. Quartz stones on your person and around your home, along with grounding to the earth, will help lessen the exposure.

The thyroid is the considered the shield of the body. In the US alone, approximately 27 million people of some sort of thyroid condition. These people are approximately 3/4 women to 1/4 men. It does affect children too. Why? We have a very stressful world, at all ages, and we do not eat food that nourishes and protects the body.

Seaweed is very high in minerals, which we dearly lack. Seaweed, especially kelp (also known as bladderwrack (Fucus vesiculosus)) is very beneficial for the thyroid, among other things. Kelp is the highest in iodine and phenolic compounds. It is important to eat a minimum of 2 oz of seaweed a week. Seaweed, especially kelp, helps protect against radiation and helps heal and protect the thyroid.

When the atomic bombs fell on Nagasaki and Hiroshima, it was devestating. The foods that helped with the Japanese peoples’ recovery was there consumption of seaweed and miso soup. It has been showned that the polysaccharides in various seaweeds actually hinder the growth of cancer cells.

The benefit of miso soup is the fermentation. Fermented foods along with seaweed is very beneficial and supportive and protective to the body as a whole.
