To date, FDA has no evidence that radionuclides from the Fukushima incident are present in the U.S. food supply at levels that would pose a public health concern. This is true for both FDA-regulated food products imported from Japan and U.S. domestic food products, including seafood caught off the coast of the United States. Consequently, FDA is not advising consumers to alter their consumption of specific foods imported from Japan or domestically produced foods, including seafood. FDA continues to closely monitor the situation at and around the Fukushima Dai-ichi facility, as it has since the start of the incident and will coordinate with other Federal and state agencies as necessary, standing ready to take action if needed, to ensure the safety of food in the U.S. marketplace.
The Fukushima Radiation Protection site at: http://www.fukushima-shield.info/ is designed to provide an understanding of the risks posed to Americans by the ongoing radiation crisis that began on March 11, 2011 at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan.
The site also discusses the many steps we can take now to help protect our health. No other site, to my knowledge, provides this dual approach or the comprehensive information on what to avoid and what to do. In the belief that knowledge is power, the site is designed to empower people to take important steps. As we face one of the greatest challenges to our health, the government and corporate media have been largely silent. So, we must inform and empower ourselves and each other.
The risk is particularly acute for Americans on the West Coast (especially fetuses and young kids), but the radiation threatens everyone in the Northern Hemisphere. Nuclear …
Deficiencies in magnesium will wreak havoc with our body's ability to detoxify and chelate heavy radioactive particles and explains much of the difference between one person withstanding radiation exposures and another person falling to radiation sickness…..magnesium oil remains the number one item in my cancer protocol and thus number one for radiation exposure. Magnesium is our first line of defense against both.
The Amazon.com book description point outs:
Magnesium is nothing short of a miracle; it has the potential to save you from considerable suffering and pain. The information presented here could even save your life. Magnesium is the lamp of life and one of the most important keys to overall health. When applied in the correct way, magnesium offers us a return to strength and vigor. When used in the emergency room, magnesium can save the day for both heart and stroke patients….
When we are deficient in magnesium, over three hundred enzymes in our body are unable to function properly. Magnesium deficiency has been scientifically identified as a critical factor in the onset of a wide variety of diseases. For various reasons and to varying degree, two-thirds or more of the population is magnesium deficient.
Waterwise is recommended by Dr. Gabriel Cousens, a holistic physician, author of internationally-acclaimed books, and founder of the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center. Dr. David Williams says about Waterwise: “This is the best-engineered, most user-friendly, and efficient distiller I've found for such a reasonable price….and I've spent years researching different types of water treatment devices….I'm convinced that distillation is the only way to go.”
Showerwise Shower Filter: Chlorine is a halogen like iodine and blocks the receptor sites for iodine. So, it is important to limit exposure to chlorine in drinking, bathing, and swimming water. Taking a shower exposes you to more toxic chlorine than drinking 8 glasses of the same water.
Dr. Riddle, Ph.D. KEMYSTS LABORATORY reports: “Scientific studies have linked chlorine…to cancer of the bladder, liver, stomach, rectum, and colon, as well as heart disease, atherosclerosis, anemia, high blood pressure, and allergic reactions….chlorine can destroy protein in our body and cause adverse effects on skin and hair. Since chlorine is required by public health regulations to be present in all public drinking water supplies, it is up to the individual to remove it in the home.”

The Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002 (the Bioterrorism Act) requires shippers to submit, and FDA to receive prior notice of a shipment before the arrival of any shipments of FDA-regulated food/feed products. FDA's Division of Food Defense and Targeting (DFDT), (Formally known as the Prior Notice Center (PNC)), enables the agency to stop these products upon arrival at the U.S. border or before they are distributed in U.S. commerce if a credible threat is identified for any shipment.
United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents routinely use radiation detection equipment to screen food imports, cargo, and travelers. This screening helps identify and resolve potential safety or security risks. FDA continues to work with CBP to identify shipments of FDA-regulated products originating from Japan before they arrive so that these shipments can be better targeted for examination. FDA's import staff will review each shipment of regulated goods originating from Japan and determine if it should be refused, examined and sampled or released.
