A Perspective on Ionizing Radiation Exposure After the Japanese Wake-Up Call – Part VII

Is the Linear-No-Threshold Assumption Merely an Assumption? In writing this series there were two primary controversies I wanted to address.  The first, which most directly relates to the practices utilizing clinical nutrition, is that clinical nutrition, through the use of dietary changes and/or supplementation that not only includes potassium iodide but goes so much farther, … Continue reading A Perspective on Ionizing Radiation Exposure After the Japanese Wake-Up Call – Part VII

A Perspective on Ionizing Radiation Exposure After the Japanese Wake-Up Call – Part VI

Protection from Radioactivity - Antioxidants In the last installment of this series I began a discussion on the use of supplemental antioxidants as protective agents against the damaging effects of ionizing radiation, focusing on melatonin.  Given that we tend not to think of melatonin as an antioxidant that counteracts the effects of ionizing radiation, I … Continue reading A Perspective on Ionizing Radiation Exposure After the Japanese Wake-Up Call – Part VI

A Perspective on Ionizing Radiation Exposure After the Japanese Wake-Up Call – Part IV – The Health Impact of Radioactive Iodine (I131) from Reactor Explosions and Subsequent Supplementation with KI

Since part III of this series was devoted to the issue of non-ionizing radiation, largely derived from wireless devices such as cell phones, and its impact on health, I have not explored published information on the March 2011 disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant since June.  Interestingly, I feel that it was a good … Continue reading A Perspective on Ionizing Radiation Exposure After the Japanese Wake-Up Call – Part IV – The Health Impact of Radioactive Iodine (I131) from Reactor Explosions and Subsequent Supplementation with KI

A Perspective On Ionizing Radiation Exposure After the Japanese Wake-Up Call – Part III – What About Non-Ionizing Radiation?

As I finished writing part II of this series, it was my intent to review in detail the risk of I-131 exposure from nuclear power plant accidents and optimal use of potassium iodide supplementation to mitigate its effects while keeping risks of side effects from potassium iodide supplementation at a minimum.  However, as I continued … Continue reading A Perspective On Ionizing Radiation Exposure After the Japanese Wake-Up Call – Part III – What About Non-Ionizing Radiation?

A Perspective on Ionizing Radiation Exposure After the Japanese Wake-Up Call – Part II

It has now been approximately two months since I wrote part I of this series and, thanks to William and Kate, Osama Bin Ladin, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Maria Shriver, Harold Camping (Google this name if you do not recognize it), and, most recently, Anthony Weiner and a whole host of other headline grabbers, the Japanese earthquake … Continue reading A Perspective on Ionizing Radiation Exposure After the Japanese Wake-Up Call – Part II

A Perspective on Ionizing Radiation Exposure After the Japanese Wake-Up Call – Part I

Over the years my overall purpose in writing the Moss Nutrition Report has been to present what is currently on my mind from a clinical/nutritional standpoint based on my personal studies and input from you.  As we have all seen, up until March 11, 2011, our overriding concern has been finding ways to deal with, as noted … Continue reading A Perspective on Ionizing Radiation Exposure After the Japanese Wake-Up Call – Part I
