  The threat of radiation exposure is increasing daily due to the breakdown of the nuclear reactors in Japan, and even though mainstream media is not covering it, the radioactive debris is now hitting the shores of California. While most of the attention is on the reactors, it is not safe to assume that there are not other incidences of radiation exposure that we are not being told about and that does still affect us. There are other types of radiation that we are exposed to on a daily basis:
1) Terrestrial - from the soil, rocks, plants and the ocean
2) Cosmic - from solar and other cosmic rays that penetrate earth’s atmosphere
3) Man-made - from computers, microwaves, cell phones, cigarette smoking, medical devices (CAT scans, x-rays, body scanners, food and postal radiation), mammograms 
     Along with the threat of radiation, our skies are being sprayed virtually day and night with dangerous toxins called “Chemtrails”. Most people do not look up at the sky but when you do you will see what looks like smoke trails behind the planes which most people think are the regular jet plane exhaust or “contrails” which disappear in a minute or so. Chemtrails not only linger for a long time but they spread out to form an artificial cloud cover. They are always sprayed 1-2 days before any rain or precipitation. Some resources and pictures on Chemtrails and its dangers are: www.Educate-yourself.org, YouTube.com (Danger In The Sky), Chemtrails911.com and Bariumblues.com. 
     In light of the many toxins that we are exposed to on a daily basis whether it is in the air, in and on the food or in the water, it is important to regularly detoxify the body to strengthen it and the immune system. Listed are several resources to assist you in making healthy choices:  
  Kelp (also known as Bladderwrack) - There has been a lot information promoting potassium iodide as the ultimate defense for radioactive iodine in order to protect the thyroid, by saturating the thyroid with potassium iodide and then once saturated the thyroid will not be able to absorb much of the radioactive iodine. However, it ideally is to be taken before exposure to the radiation. Kelp has been promoted to alleviate radiation and the popularity has caused supplies to become very low or not available at all. Kelp is a seaweed rich in B vitamins, minerals, cell salts and trace minerals and it is very high in iodine which makes it beneficial for treating thyroid problems. It is also good for people with mineral deficiencies, it protects against the effects of radiation, is useful for hair loss, obesity, ulcers, it absorbs waste from the body fluids, binds with poison, and then carries them off to be excreted. It is a good antioxidant, diuretic, endocrine tonic, and also for heart disease, rheumatism, arthritis and infectious diseases.
  Spirulina – is an algae which is extremely high in protein (65%), it also contains all the essential amino acids, chlorophyll, vitamin B12, high levels of vitamin E, gamma linoleic acid (GLA), iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, potassium, zinc and bioflavonoids, concentrated amount of linoleic acid which is an essential fatty acid that the body uses to produce anti-inflammatory agents. It is very beneficial for relieving the symptoms of conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and diabetic neuropathy, building the immune system, certain liver disorders, ADHD, and asthma.
  Chlorella – is a single-celled water grown algae which contains large amounts of chlorophyll. It also contains trace minerals; all of the B vitamins, vitamins C and E, amino acids, carbohydrates and protein, and it is very high in RNA and DNA and has more vitamin B12 than liver. Chlorella contains pound for pound, the highest concentration of chlorophyll of any known plant. It also has been shown to be an excellent detoxifier of such heavy metals as cadmium, lead, mercury and copper. It is known to be very useful for allergies, arthritis, Arteriosclerosis, lowering blood pressure, gastritis, weight loss, Cancer, reducing cholesterol, constipation, hypertension, liver and bowel toxicity, radiation sickness, skin conditions, ulcers and stimulates the production of interferon.
  Wheatgrass - Wheatgrass is one of the richest, most natural sources of chlorophyll, it contains approximately 25% of the recommended daily value of protein. These proteins are deposited more efficiently into the bloodstream and tissue, they are also essential in the building and repairing of tissues, and is an important building block for the bones, muscles, cartilage, and skin. Wheatgrass also contains enzymes which digest the toxins in the body; they also play vital roles in slowing the cell deterioration process thus slowing the aging process and it is excellent for healing boils, sores and diabetic skin ulcers.
  Alfalfa - its roots can grow to well over 30 feet into the earth making it one of the most mineral enriched foods that there are. It contains a wide array of vitamins and minerals including: Vitamins K, B, C and A (Beta Carotene), calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, potassium and it is one of the best natural sources for protein (containing 25%). Alfalfa an excellent source for people with vitamin deficiency and it is also known to reduce cholesterol and blood sugar levels, it relieves pain and stiffness of arthritis/bursitis, improves liver functions, it is a natural detoxifier, increases energy levels and reduces fatigue, aids in digestion and strengthens the immune system.
  Miso – is a Japanese seasoning which is a thick paste generally made from fermented soy beans but can also be made from rice, barley, hemp or other grains. It is used to make miso soup, sauces, marinades, salad dressings and other dishes. After the bombing of Nagasaki in Japan, Dr. Akizuki served miso soup, brown rice, seaweed and tamari soup to some of the survivors from ground zero, also forbidding them to consume any sugar. Not only did the patients live but they did not show any signs of radiation poisoning. 
  Alkaline water and alkaline foods Herbs : nettle, burdock, red clover, ginko biloba, Korean ginseng, turmeric, coriander, astragalus, rooibos tea, green tea, yellow dock, coriander Foods: beans (especially navy) and legumes, beets, dulse, garlic, kombu, green and orange vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, winter squash, carrots, greens, cabbage, onions, any sprouts, sweet potatoes, cilantro, sun flower seeds Therapies: taking baths in bentonite clay, sea salt, boron/borax, baking soda (aluminum free) and/or Epsom salt. Oil Pulling (also called swishing): is an ancient Ayurvedic process of taking one tablespoon of oil in the mouth, then suck and pull the oil through the teeth for 15-20 minutes without swallowing it because it will be full of toxins. Swishing activates the enzymes draws toxins out of the blood.

Natural radiation defense

   The popular food for slaves consisted of corn ground into grits, or meal, made into what is called hominy, or baked into bread from March until August. The other six months they fed upon the sweet potato, except at Christmas, when they had beef. In honor of African American History month and the continued goal of eating for the good of our health, this month’s issue we have chosen to share the wonderful benefits of corn and the beloved sweet potato.  
     Corn provides many health benefits due to the presence of quality nutrients within. Besides being a delicious addition to any meal, it is also rich in phytochemicals, and it provides protection against a number of chronic diseases. 
  The following are some of its benefits: 
1.Corn is a rich source of calories and is a staple among dietary habits in many populations. 
2.Reduces risk of hemorrhoids and colorectal cancer
3.Rich source of vitamins
4.Provides necessary minerals
5.Antioxidant properties
6.Protecting Your Heart
7.Prevents Anemia
8.Lowers LDL Cholesterol
9.Controls diabetes and hypertension
     Sweet potatoes pack a powerful nutritional punch. They contain over 400% of your daily needs for vitamin A in one medium spud, as well as loads of fiber and potassium. They have more grams of natural sugars than a regular potato and more overall nutrients with fewer calories.
     Despite of the terms sweet potato and yam often being used interchangeably, they are actually not even botanically related. Yams are almost exclusively grown in Africa and are drier and starchy compared to a sweet potato. Many studies have suggested that increasing consumption of plant foods like sweet potatoes decreases the risk of many adverse health conditions such as:
2.Lowering blood pressure,
3.Plays a protective role against prostate cancer
4.Helps to prevent constipation
5.The vitamin A in sweet potatoes is also essential during pregnancy 
6.Offer an immunity boost from their powerful combination of nutrients
7.Helps with sleep, muscle movement, learning and memory
8.Correcting vitamin A deficiencies with foods high in beta-carotene will restore vision
