    Renew Life has a good heavy metal cleanse. Cilantro and chlorella are good for this too, not from Japan. Miso, not from Japan. Modifilan, which is brown seaweed kelp extract is good for this. Edible dulce and kelp seaweed are good of this just as long as not from the Pacific rim. MSM is beneficial for this as is Vitamin C in megadoses. Could go on, but that’s a start.

  • Mauibrad Mauibrad

    Also, don’t allow yourself to be directly rained upon. Take your shoes off at the entrance to your house. Don’t play in the dirt in affected areas are some other good ideas. Lastly regardless of the dislocation, consider moving far away from the radiation, that’s what I did.

    • StillJill StillJill

      Good for you Mauibrad,…but, where IS “far away from the radiation?” Inquiring minds want to know, friend! 🙂

  • Mauibrad Mauibrad

    Oh, one more, don’t eat fruits, vegetables, milk, or seafood from areas affected by fallout. That would definitely include most of Honshu. It also may include much of the North American West Coast with regard to fruits, vegetables and milk. Watch out for the tsunami debris field, due to wash up on Pacific shores in the coming 6 months to 2 years.

      Stop eating our homegrown lemons, limes, and tangerines?? NO!
      Hubby(85) and I(67)live six miles from the Southern CA coast and still survive very well because of our faith and certain daily protocols.One of these is with our lemons and limes. Each a.m.I squeeze and scrape 1/2 lime and 1/2 lemon (for each of us)into a glass. A grapefruit spoon is great for this. To mine I add a sprinkle of cayenne pepper, a sprinkle of natural salt (for good electrolytes)and a bit of Maple Syrup Grade B and a small amount of warm filtered water. To hubby's I do not add thew cayenne. (He takes two capsules daily of cool cayenne which I cannot tolerate.) I have come to believe that this is like a daily mini liver cleanse with a great shot of Vitamin C. I believe that the daily taking of boron and 12.5 mg. iodine (Swanson Vitamins) are GREAT ways to fight the radiation. I also give food iodine drops and boron to our pets.

    So, as indicated, if we are going to be so
    hyper-selective about Exactly where our Seaweed
    Comes From, this is a program of advice to last only
    maybe the next month or so, or until all the old
    supply is gone. False Labelling is going to be rampant.
    Then we hit the snag….
    Do we really even have a month left of normal commerce?
    Do you think you’ll be able to keep on just popping in
    to your local health-food store, brimming with Natural
    Healthy abundance? Really?
    Looks like Shit hitting the Fan to me.
    No more transportation of foods, no more trucks running.
    Hawaii folks think that Pele will sustain them.
    At least you can grow a lot of variety in Hawaii.
    Soon there will be only Luxury-Class Bloated Prices
    available. You might actually find yourself in the middle
    of a check-out transaction, and have the manager stop
    the checker and say, “I’m sorry, we can’t accept
    US Dollars any more…”

      The one company that can be trusted is Eden Foods. They have their own testing system in place, have done so since about amonth after Fukushima. It’s far beyond anything the FDA (ptui! ptui!) requires. I interviewed Jon Solomon, head of purchasing, on Nuclear Hotseat on July 26, 2011; here’s the link:

        Why I don’t trust Eden foods:
        About Eden
        “green tea and traditional natural food from Japan. In this catalog, foods imported from Japan are marked with a map/flag symbol shown here….”
        Map/flag symbol:
        I couldn’t read the symbols on this map. After printing it out, I read the numbers on the Japan part of the map:
        3. Arame
        6. Bifa-15
        17. Hiziki
        24. Miso
        26 Mochi
        27. Nori
        30. Pasta – Japan
        33. Plum Balls [I think Uemboshi plums only grow in Japan]
        41. Soba & Udon {noodles]
        43. Soy Sauces
        49. Tea
        51. Wakame
        52. Wasabi

        I looked in the catalog and I know that some of these items are coming from Japan, but couldn’t find a single flag.
        Here are two examples of how they praise imports from Japan:
        “Of our twelve Japanese sea vegetables, ten come from the Ise Bay, well south of Tokyo. Ocean currents take seawater radition directly away from Eden’s sea veetable producing area in Ise Bay and our kombu supply in Hokkado. Prognosis for steady supply seems good at this time….”
        “EDEN Green Tea comes from the Nagata family tea cooperative. These tea farmers have been using organic management practices on their plantations since 1974, and the plants growing these leaves are the happiest they can be. The Uji region of Kyoto prefecture, about 240 miles southwest of Tokyo, is world famous for it green tea where early morning mists moisten the leaves as they warm in the sun. Small wonder we are asked, “Why does EDEN green tea taste so much better than all the others?” The simple answer is because of the long-term organic management, the potent health of the tea plants, and the painstaking excellence in the hand harvested tea’s handling.

    Expert Radiation Advice from Gabriel Cousens, MD – Including 6 Principles of Radiation Protection
    31.03.2011 by emily Category Electromagnetic Health Blog
    In review, some simple things to do to choose life:

    I. Mineralize well for nuclear plant meltdowns with
    A. Iodoral (50-100 mg daily) – 1-2 tablets daily
    B. Kelp tablets – 4-10 tablets daily
    C. Spirulina is a great source of iron to protect against radioactive plutonium.

    II. Chelate
    A. Use NCD as the primary chelator at 10 drops, 4 times daily.
    B. Use kelp (5-10 tablets) for I-131
    C. Use dulse for chelating plutonium

    III. Increase your antioxidant intake.
    A. Nano-Green Tea (½ tsp, 2 times daily)
    B. Mega Hydrate (400 mg, 2 times daily)
    C. Antioxidant Extreme (10 capsules, 2 times daily)

    IV. Foods and Herbs
    A. Increase spirulina, chlorella, and E-3 Live in the diet
    B. Increase all leafy greens and cruciferous vegetables
    C. Take bee pollen (2 Tbsp, 2 times daily)
    D. Increase garlic and onion intake
    E. Use Siberian Ginseng, Panax Ginseng, Chapparel, and Rosemary

    V. Eat an organic, plant-source-only diet, which naturally alkalizes the body and is low on the food chain. Additionally, cover your garden.

    Dr. Hulda Clark’s Herbal Parasite Cleanse
    Getting rid of all parasites would be absolutely impossible using clinical medicines that can kill only one or two parasites each. Such medicines also tend to make you quite ill. Imagine taking 10 such drugs to kill a dozen of your parasites! Good news, perhaps, for the drug makers but not for you.
    Yet three herbs can rid you of over 100 types of parasites! And without so much as a headache! Without nausea! Without any interference with any drug that you are already on! Does this sound too fantastic? Just too good to be true? They are natures gift to us. The herbs are:
    Black Walnut Hulls (from the black walnut tree – juglans nigra)
    was used by the Indians of America as an anti-parasite, anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal remedy. Its active ingredients are juglone, tannin and iodine
    Wormwood (from the Artemisia shrub – artemisia absinthum)
    Its known for its vermicidal properties and helps those with a weak and under-active digestion. It increases the acidity of the stomach and the production of bile. It reduced bloatiness and
    Common Cloves (from the clove tree – eugenia caryophyllata)
    has anti-parasitical, anti-fungal, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. It also removes pain
    These three herbs must be used together. Black walnut hull and wormwood kill adults and developmental stages of at least 100 parasites. Cloves kill the eggs. Only if you use them together will you rid yourself of parasites. If you kill only the adults, the tiny stages and eggs will soon grow into new adults. If you kill only the eggs, the million stages already loose in your body will soon grow into adults and make more eggs. They must be used together as a single treatment.

    (From: “The Cure for all Cancers”, p. 11f.; Copyright notice)
    Ornithine and arginine are two natural aminoacids that detox ammonia. They help the body free itself from excessive nitrogen. They protect the liver from damage caused by medications and chemicals and stimulate the regeneration of the liver. They strengthen the immune defense by stimulating the production of more active and more effective WBCs.
    Arginine is also involved with hormone secretion and reduces tumor growth.

      I take black walnut hull and wormwood once a week. I need to grind the cloves just before taking so I haven’t been good about that.

        Black walnut hulls have been proven to be carcinogenic for 70 years. They also get rid of jungle rot the soldier came back with.

        be aware

        • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

          Thank you selfsovereign, What I bought in bulk is definitely not the right thing:

          How Parasites Cause Cancer and HIV
          “It is the green hull of the black walnut tree that has the miraculous parasiticide. Once it turns black it is useless for this purpose, If you take the walnuts in a tincture, use only the pale green extract, not black.”

          Other info:

          “Black walnut hulls offer safe worm intervention, but is not intended for chronic or long term use. Avoid herbal remedies including both heartwood and hulls….”

          “Not for long term or chronic use, the juglone in black walnut has carcinogenic effects. Can be toxic if not used with proper care and respect. Remember anything that can kill a tapeworm has the potential of being harmful to the host.”

          DEVELOPMENTAL TOXICITY: Not available. Repeated or prolonged exposure is not known to aggravate medical condition.”

          • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

            The black walnut hull I bought is VERY black. I used to take capsules which were made from the green hull.

            • pazsion

              Notice there is no documentation that black walnuts cause cancer. Fact- they have more antioxidants then many other nuts etc. This fights cancer.

              Fact, the active ingredients can be found in the entire fruit, nut. It is highest in it's green shell and husk of the nut.

              Getting these things directly from the tree is always best. The longer it has been separated from the tree, the least likely you'll get the desired effects.

              The husks and green shell must be washed etc. some processing is required.

              Organic is best and minimizes carcinogens from the enviroment. The only way a food item can be carcinogenic. The other is if the body regects it. Or has an alergic reaction. avoid anything labeled by the FDA or USDA.

              Needless to say anything outside is contaminated. Some organic growers already produce indoor foods. Try your best to find this information. Even if indoor/outdoor (animals and produce) this would reduce the ammount and likelyhood of being contaminated in the first place.

              Also the further it has to travel, the more contaminated it will be.

      Thanks Anne,…I just ordered a number of your suggestions,…many I was doing already. Wanted to mention the dreaded wormwood/walnut hull suggestion. I did that very parasite regime this past February,…and got the shock of a lifetime! “What’s a NICE girl like me,…doing with THESE things in my body????”

        I don’t have much money so I got these in bulk from Frontier Herbs. Now I drink it down with water. It tastes horrible but it a lot less expensive than capsules. I bought the capsules, but I don’t ever have the patience to put them in capsules.

        I put it in my zeolite and clay and water. There is usually some left that I save for the next day.

    I take zeolite and bentonite clay everyday.

    • midwestern midwestern

      anne, will you describe how you take the zeolite and bentonite clay. I followed a link provided here once that led me to a video by Dean Philpot about zeolite, Sweet PDZ, and I got some, but isn’t that mainly for filtering radioactivity out of water? So I have bags of both powder and crystal Sweet PDZ, and am wondering if you have this? If so, or if anyone else does, how do you use it?
      And what other forms of both do you recommend and how do you use them?
      Thanks, anne, you rock.

      takeing chleteing agents such as zeolite or stronger ones, also take away minerals from the body. Depending on dosage it is not recommended to be used daily. And a multivitamin should be used to replace anything excreted.

      When baking soda hits the bloodstream , it destroys hemoglobin.

      • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

        “can Baking Soda (taken orally in small amounts) assist in fighting cancer by helping to balance the body”s Ph levels and allowing the transportation of more oxygen through the blood thereby oxygenating otherwise low oxygen cancerous zones?
        “A: Small amounts of baking soda are highly unlikely to have any effect upon the body”s pH. The kidneys are highly effective at regulating pH between 7.35 and 7.45, and a person with normal kidneys rarely falls outside this range (acute respiratory problems and ingestion of toxins are the major examples of times when this can happen). As a matter of fact, the kidneys do this by altering the production and excretion of sodium bicarbonate — i.e. baking soda! Taking additional baking soda usually just causes the kidneys to excrete more sodium bicarb and causes the urine pH to rise. Similarly, the transportation of oxygen is also very unlikely to be altered by baking soda. Though decreases in pH (more acidity) will cause hemoglobin to release… “

        see also:

        Baking Soda for Radiation?

        Baking Soda and Radiation
        “Baking soda ( Bicarbonate of Soda) helps to keep the kidneys alkaline during emergencies and radiation will therefore not do much harm, if any at all. The properties of sodium bicarbonate are so protective, buffering, and neutralizing that it can be used liberally in cases of radiation exposure to protect kidneys and other tissues. Baking soda acts like an efficient janitor helping to cleanse the mess and wash away the poisons and toxins. When used in cases of radiation, baking soda protects the tissues by leaving behind an alkaline trail to ensure everything stays perfectly safe. Baking soda is even administered intravenously to protect chemotherapy patients from its extreme toxicity. In addition, baking soda has a high Ph value and this property helps to oxygenate fungi and tumors. It has been proved that cancer cells cannot flourish and thrive on high Ph or high oxygen levels.
        “So how do I recommend that you use this? A tablet or teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate along with the few drops of fresh lemon juice acts as an antacid and could potentially provide instant relief from the effects of radiation. (By the way, this same recipe works for dispelling painful wind in case of indigestion and flatulence.)
        “A foot soak made of 150gms of bicarbonate of soda with equal quantities of Epsom salts would also be helpful. Or simply add it to your bathtub when taking a bath as most professional dancers do to alleviate sore muscles from hours of dancing….”

        Here are a couple of articles at the same url:

        Bicarbonate Maple Cancer Treatment
        “It is very important not to use baking soda which has had aluminum added to it. The Cancer Tutor site reports that Arm and Hammer does have aluminum but the company insists that is not true. One can buy a product which specifically states it does not include aluminum or other chemicals. (e.g. Bob’s Red Mill, Aluminum-Free, Baking Soda).”

      • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

        Basically I take the baking soda because the one day I don’t I’m up in the middle of the night with muscle cramps which just seem to curl up. In the past I have always had a very high red blood count and even had above normal on one occasion. You definitely need to know your own body and possible consequences of taking something. I looked for a link to what selfsovereign said about hemoglobin destroyed by baking soda, but haven’t found anything so far. Maybe someone has a link or a source.

      • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

        I haven’t taken baking soda for at least a week. Have substituted certified raw unheated unfiltered unpasturized organic apple cider vinegar and raw garlic and raw ginger. Thanks for the info.

          It seems that I am reading these words for the first time. (A little late,huh?) How wonderful that we are still here reading them.)I do not like vinegar. For a number of years hubby and I have taken 2 capsules of apple cider vinegar (Swanson Vitamins). Very inexpensive and much more pleasant! Pro-biotics also help to rid the body of BAD agents naturally. We like Garden of Eden's Primal Defense Ultra and Swanson's inexpensive Dr. Stephen Langer's Ultimate 16 Strain Probiotic. Large doses of Vitamin D3 (no toxic level in this form) will heal and remove depression naturally.

    I sprout lentils and garbanzo beans and eat one or the other every day. They have B-17. I put in the food processor with powdered kelp and dulse flakes from Maine, Brewer’s yeast (has alpha lipoic acid), pecin (from health food store or ordered over the internet) or powered cranberries, cilantro, miso, and whole lemon,lime, or grapefruit including pulp, seeds and skin.

  • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

    For grains, I soak millet, sprout buckwheat, quinoa, or amaranth. In the food processor I add whole lemon, lime, or grapefruit. I add root vegetables such as carrots, beets, burdock root, and/or daikon radish, miso, cilantro.

    I grind in my coffee grinder flax seeds and rosemary leaf to add when the mixture is out of the food processor.

    I also add spirulina (or blue green algae from Klammath Lake, Oregon, or chorella).

      Making Homemade Sauerkraut, Part 1

      Making Homemade Sauerkraut, Part 2

      Raw Sauerkraut
      Submitted By: Rhonda Malkmus
      Homemade sauerkraut is a fermented food that is much more nutritious than the pasteurized, store-bought variety. Living enzymes will be in tact, as will the beneficial probiotics (good bacteria), loads of vitamin C and much more! It’s one of God’s natural “medicines!”
      NOTE: This recipe is about 1/2 the size of the recipe demonstrated on HATV: Part 1 & Part 2.

      • 1/2 head purple cabbage (or green) for juicing
      • Several hand-peeled leaves from one head of cabbage to cover the mixture when done
      • 3 heads of green and/or green cabbage
      • 3 Fuji apples (peeled and sliced into rounds)
      • 1-1/2 Tbsp Celtic sea salt
      • 1-2 probiotic supplement capsules (contents only)
      • kelp flakes
      • Large, dark colored container to serve as fermentation crock (dark to prevent light from interfering with fermentation process)
      • Blunt instrument to bruise sauerkraut
      • Jars to store sauerkraut in refrigerator
      1. Juice the 1/2 head of cabbage. Set aside.
      2. Use an S-blade in a food processor to shred the rest of the cabbage about ½ head at a time.
      3. Collect all shredded cabbage into a large bowl.
      4. Massage ½ Tbsp of salt into the shredded cabbage.
      5. Layer about one quarter of each ingredient in the crock: cabbage, cabbage juice, sliced apples, salt, kelp flakes, and probiotic supplement powder.
      6. Firmly tamper (bruise) the ingredients to release juices by using the end of a baseball bat or other heavy, blunt instrument. This begins the fermentation process.
      7. Repeat steps 6 and 7 until there are about 4 layers of each ingredient.
      8. Top with peeled cabbage leaves.
      9. Put a plate or other hard, flat surface on top of the peeled cabbage leaves and weight it down with a container of water or other heavy object. This ensures the mixture stays compacted during fermentation.
      10. If using a light colored crock, cover it with a dark blanket.
      11. Set aside in a dark, room temperature place for about 10 days.
      12. Remove the weight, plate, leaves, and any mold or discolored sauerkraut from the top of the mixture.
      13. Spoon into jars and place jars in a refrigerator. Will keep for a month or more (if you don’t eat it all first!).

        Hi anne, being a Kraut myself, I surely love Sauerkraut 🙂

        Have you ever tried it mixed with a sliced orange, some walnuts and a spoon of single cream? If not, you should try that.

    • selfsovereign

      If youre growing your own burdock, then use the seeds,not the root. The seeds have a higher concentration of the active ingredient.

      If you buy your burdock at the store you dont know if your getting a first season harvest. Economics being the motivator that they are, you might be buying a severely diluted root, where in the second year nearly all of the active constituent migrates to the seeds, leaving the root worthless.

    Chaparral contains a potent antioxidant constituent

      Herbal Remedies That Can be Carcinogenic
      Chaparral also popular as creosote bush, is a strongly scented olive green bush. It grows from California to Texas and Mexico.

      Chaparral has been employed in the cure of bronchitis, common colds and in rheumatism. It is an effective antioxidant because of the presence of nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA). This compound is also used as preservative for animal fats. Yet studies revealed that NDGT produced cyst and kidney damage in rodents.

      I only took chaparral when everyone expected me to die anyway.

    Studies on the Antioxidant Activity of Echinacea Root Extract

    Antioxidant activity of yellow dock

    “Burdock root and its tea also contain at least five powerful flavonoid-type antioxidants that are more powerful antioxidants than vitamin C….”

    “Dandelion roots offer both food and medicine to some dedicated harvesters. Both the leaves and flowers offer antioxidants’’’”

    “Spirulina contains a wealth of antioxidant vitamins C and E, and beta carotene, as well as the antioxidant minerals selenium, manganese, zinc, copper, iron and chromium. Research has shown spirulina to protect vitamin C from potency loss….”

    “Collard greens are an excellent source of the three main antioxidants in foods: vitamin C, vitamin E, and vitamin A (through its concentration of pro-vitamin A carotenoids like beta-carotene). Another way in which collard greens provide antioxidant support is through their concentration of the trace mineral, manganese. In the human body, manganese functions as an enzyme activator. Just one of the vitally important enzymes manganese activates is the one that helps the body utilize vitamin C. In addition, manganese is an integral component of an internally produced antioxidant enzyme called superoxide dismutase. Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is found exclusively inside the mitochondria (the energy-production factories within almost all our cells), which it protects from the damaging effects of free radicals….”

    Pau DArco Tea, Herb Amazingly Rich in Antioxidants

  • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

    I also seasoned with thyme (unheated) another antioxidant:
    “Thymol—named after the herb itself—is the primary volatile oil constituent of thyme, and its health-supporting effects are well documented. In studies on aging in rats, thymol has been found to protect and significantly increase the percentage of healthy fats found in cell membranes and other cell structures. In particular, the amount of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid) in brain, kidney, and heart cell membranes was increased after dietary supplementation with thyme. In other studies looking more closely at changes in the brains cells themselves, researchers found that the maximum benefits of thyme occurred when the food was introduced very early in the lifecycle of the rats, but was less effective in offsetting the problems in brain cell aging when introduced late in the aging process.
    “Thyme also contains a variety of flavonoids, including apigenin, naringenin, luteolin, and thymonin. These flavonoids increase thyme’s antioxidant capacity, and combined with its status as a very good source of manganese, give thyme a high standing on the list of anti-oxidant foods….”

    I also drank lost of Bancha Twig Tea: Unfortunately, it is now full of radiation.
    “Kukicha tea benefits are numerous and potentially profound. Its primary impact lies in its alkalizing abilities; kukicha tea helps to alkalize the body’s fluids and tissue, thereby balancing acidity levels and preventing disease.
    “Kukicha twig tea has the strongest alkalizing ability of any Japanese tea. It is also packed with nutrients. A cup of twig tea is a good source of calcium, zinc, selenium, copper, manganese and fluoride. It is also a rich source of B-complex vitamins, vitamin C and A, flavonoids and the same polyphenols that have made green tea known as a cancer-fighting food, catechins.
    “Catechins act as powerful antioxidants, minimizing the effect of free radicals before they have a chance to damage other cells. One catechin in particular, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) has twenty-five to one hundred times the antioxidant capability of vitamins C and E, which are the primary water-soluble and fat-soluble antioxidants. Research has shown that EGCG may not only prevent cancer, but also suppress tumor growth, and block enzymes which help to spread cancer within cells. Many have claimed eating a macrobiotic diet, including kukicha twig tea is a cure for some cancers. Although there is no scientific evidence of this, George Ohsawa may be correct – kukicha tea is one of the most balancing beverages, and therefore is an integral part of optimal health.
    “The best thing about kukicha tea is that it helps to maintain proper functioning of the kidneys and liver, two crucial body organs that aid the process of decontamination. Kukicha tea has natural ingredients that are proven to have detoxification activities and antioxidant properties. This helps your body remove unwanted by-products and harmful wastes, keeping you disease- free and healthy.
    “Kukicha tea also aids in production of bile, which subsequently enhances digestive processes in the body. …”

      Love your info
      just want you to be aware

      Bone meal is loaded with PRIONS. People and plants should avoid prions like the plaque.

      Rock phosphate contains naturally occuring uranium.So please wear a dust mask when handling rock phosphate.

      Compost from wood chips using mushrooms to break the carbon bonds will create radiation free compost over the winter.

          The bone meal was for a soil amendment. I don’t advocate any animal products for human consumption from anywhere.

          In light of what selfsovereign said about bone meal, I wouldn’t advocate using it for soil amendment also. I was just quoting what someone else was using. I will try using zeolite as a soil amendment, but will use a face mask when working it into the soil.

        Mushrooms are bio-accumulators of radiation. The advice I’ve heard is to avoid them and not plant them for remediation… because then what do you do with a bunch of radioactive mushrooms?

        • pazsion

          seal it in stainless steel atleast .8" thick. And bury it 3ft deep. Away from any potential water sources.

          Until we find something that can make radiation harmless, in a short period oft time…sealing it in a container that shields it, and buring it. is our best means of keeping it from spreading, while it naturally becomes less radioactive over time.

    An example of advice:

    “Soak all greens and vegetables or fruit that cannot be peeled in a mixture of 4 ounces of baking soda per gallon for at least 20 minutes. You can also scrub foods with baking soda and a damp sponge (use rubber gloves if your food is dusty from fallout and avoid breathing the dust). Baking soda absorbs uranium and some other radioactive particles very well.”

    In general, I avoid foods that have malonic acid.

    See also below “organic oranges, carrots and broccoli do not contain malonic acid, whereas the ordinary varieties do.”

    Dr. Clark’s books updated and revised



    by: Clark, Hulda Regehr, Ph.D.

    “Malonic acid (also known as malonate) accumulates in tumours – it is a common denominator of tumours. Certain foods contain malonate (see list of malonate-free foods in The Cure for All Advanced Cancers). The malonic acid content of foods has increased due to agricultural practices such as the use of certain pesticides, time of harvesting and methods of artificial ripening. For instance, organic oranges, carrots and broccoli do not contain malonic acid, whereas the ordinary varieties do…”

    Clay has been demonstrated to absorb plutonium. The plutonium falling from the upper atmosphere sticks to exposed areas of the body. It will eventually enter inside the body through the eyes, nose, mouth, and through cuts and scrapes.

    Applying bentonite clay will remove more than 90% of plutonium from the skin.

      In some places inside the US there are churches and several organiseations that offer free food and clothes to low income families. Some just offer free vegtables and food regardless of income. I bet they are grown outside, and no precations have been taken. But i'm assumeing this. There will need to be some checking of the food. And advertiseing to these people so they know. Programs like this could be very helpful if the food is not contaminated by radiation.

    Most people think in terms of Food and Water when it comes to survival or good health, but actually that should be reversed…
    Water and food. (Air being the most important of course!)
    I posted on another thread the virtues of the Reverse Osmosis water filter system I was able to purchase. It is from a company called APEC if you are interested. It was pricey, $420 with shipping and the extra pump for low pressure. I am not a rich person and work full time for my rent. And yes I rent, not own, but with three valve changes this baby comes with me wherever I go!
    HOWEVER, I want to share how I did this…
    Like many here, I too, have been stashing a little extra here and there when I shop, SO, I ate from the food stores I had for two months. If I ran out of something, I substituted, or went without. I visisted our great local food bank and even had donations of meals and food from friends and others that I have offered to share this cleaner water with. In two months I had my filter. There are less expensive ones also. I reccommend checking them out.

    Home Made Hepa Type Filters:

    I tried to type the instructions as I saw it made, but the friend that made it, read it, and gave me ‘The Look.’
    He typed it up in a way that others can possible follow, and with some grammar, spelling, and editing we came up with this!

    Two Parts – Too long…

    Next post is the real deal –

  • Be Still My Beating Heart

    Step 1. gather your materials:
    1 – 250 CFM inline 6” duct fan
    1 – 8” to a 1′ x 2′ rigid metal screen(depends on how big a filter your useing, can be any type of metal screen as long as its rigid and strong)
    1 – Grounded power cord
    1 – Cut to fit carbon filter
    1 – Any corrugated Micro Allergen Reduction, (MAR), filter with a light metal screen backing of, at least 1000 Merv rating. I used a 1500. The higher the rating used, the more reduction in air flow.
    (pick a size that is double the size of your rigid metal screen so you can cut 2 filters from each one you buy, from the carbon and MAR filter)
    1 – Cut to fit hogs hair pre-filter
    4 – 1” L brackets for pre-filter supports
    1 – Roll of Gorilla tape or comparable industrial Duct Tape
    1 – Tube of silicon
    1 – On/off switch ether pre-instaled into power cord or separately wired in
    1 – 6” Duct end cap (makes changing the filters in the future much easier and the end result looks much better)
    1 – Roll of aluminium duct tape

  • Be Still My Beating Heart

    Step 2. Attach screen to the inline duct fan and cap end:
    Use either the more rigid aluminium duct tape or the Gorilla tape to attach the rigid metal screen to the inline duct fan. Wrap the screen around the outside of the duct. First tape its shape into place, then tape it to the inline fans ducting. (Make sure fan is blowing towards the screen, fans push air better then they pull air.) Be sure to tape both the outside and inside of the the screen when taping it into place, making sure the tape is lined up on both sides to make it as rigid as possible. This will effectively give you a screen tube attached to the duct. If you have chosen to use a duct end cap, you need to secure the screen to the end cap, after the screen has been taped into its tube shape, before attaching it to the duct fan – making sure to tape both the inside and the outside of the end cap. If you have chosen the cheaper option, use gorilla tape to block off the end of the screen opposite the duct fan.

    Step 3. Attach pre-filter mounts to inside of inline duct fan air inlet:
    On the opposite side of the duct, from the screen, where the air flows in, attach the 4 pre-filter mount L brackets on the inside of duct. Use a liberal amount of silicon and tape them securely into place so they can dry. When dried the silicon prevents any unnecessary vibrations and securely holds the mounts in place through a lot of use. You can use another adhesive if you would like, such as a hot glue gun, but silicon is…

  • Be Still My Beating Heart

    the best option in my opinion.

    Step 4. Cut and wrap the carbon filter around the screen:
    Measure the carbon filter against the screen and cut in half to size. Wrap the filter around the screen and secure with as little tape as possible to itself. Don’t worry about securing it to the end cap or the duct fan yet.

  • Be Still My Beating Heart

    Step 5. Cut and attach MAR filter:
    Remove the MAR filter from its cardboard shell and do as you did with carbon filter measuring it against the screen and cut to fit. Take the cut filter and wrap it around the carbon filter you already have in place. Instead of taping it to itself you take the metal backing that makes up the filter and clamp the corrugated ends together with the screen backing. While doing so try to make sure to line up the places where you taped the carbon filter and are clamping the MAR filter to minimize the reduction in air flow Once its held in place, try and seal in place as best as you can, both ends of the filter, both to the end cap and the duct fan with the gorilla tape, making sure to tape all the corrugations on both ends.

    Step 5. Cut and attach MAR filter:
    Remove the MAR filter from its cardboard shell and do as you did with carbon filter measuring it against the screen and cut to fit. Take the cut filter and wrap it around the carbon filter you already have in place. Instead of taping it to itself you take the metal backing that makes up the filter and clamp the corrugated ends together with the screen backing. While doing so try to make sure to line up the places where you taped the carbon filter and are clamping the MAR filter to minimize the reduction in air flow Once its held in place, try and seal in place as best as you can, both ends of the filter, both to the end cap and the duct fan with the gorilla tape, making sure to tape all…

  • Be Still My Beating Heart

    the corrugations on both ends.

    Step 6. Cut pre-filter:
    Cut the hogs hair pre-filter using the inline duct fan as a guide. Put in place making sure not to push the not yet dry pre-filter mounts out of place. It should be secure by itself without any additional support. If it falls out to easily for your taste use a little tape to better hold it in place.

  • Be Still My Beating Heart

    Step 7. Wire power cord:
    Wire the power cord to the inline duct fan including the On/Off switch if your using a separate one. If your not that’s okay, you just have to plug and unplug it. Make sure to properly insulate the wires with end caps and electrical tape or the gorilla tape.

  • Be Still My Beating Heart

    Step 8. Test it out:
    Plug it into the wall and test out your new filter. You should have good air flow being sucked in through the pre-filter and a little air flow coming out of the filter evenly all around except for the seem where the filters are attached together. There shouldn’t be any major air leaks from ether end of the filters that you sealed with tape. If so then try to it seal better with a little extra tape.

      How can you be sure this filter 99.9% of the air that moves through it?

      Does it filter down to .006micons? a nano particle is about .07microns. I believe. This is about the limit of what should be desired from filtering devices. And would be effective at reducing risk of exposure if it can do this.

      You'd need an electron microscope and a clean room to test this though xD

      But anything is better then nothing, unless it can be proven in someway to be simply circulating the air.
