Orthomolecular Medicine News Service reports on some new Nutritional Medicine in Japan. Workers with severe radiation exposure at the Fukushima nuclear plant had major reduction in cancer risk when supplemented with Vitamin C and other antioxidative nutrients.
Four workers who took intravenous Vitamin C (25,000 mg) therapy before they went in, and continuously took antioxidative supplements during the working period, had no significant change in both free DNA and overall cancer risk. Three workers who did not have preventive intravenous Vitamin C had an increase in calculated cancer risk. After the 2 months’ intervention with intravenous Vitamin C and oral antioxidative nutritional supplements, free DNA returned to normal level and cancer risk score was significantly decreased.
This important clinical demonstration confirms research done nearly 20 years ago showing that pretreatment of Vitamin C , by oral intake or injection, increased sperm head survival after the injection of radioactive iodine-131 in mice.
Oral intake of alpha-lipoic acid and Vitamin E reduced urinary radioactivity and oxidative stress in irradiated children in Chernobyl. Furthermore, there have been numerous scientific studies about the radioprotective effects of other vitamins, minerals, and antioxidative nutrients.

So as the radioactive waste and debris arrive on our California coast and in our air, protect your self with antioxidative supplements and nutrition.
Optimal Health and Vitality with a Beautiful Smile.
