Protection for Children

Radiation Protection: Your Child and Your Pregnancy...

As multiple nuclear reactors in Fukushima exhaust their particles into the ocean and atmosphere, certain species and categories of life prove their greater or lesser cellular vulnerability. If you want quick solutions, go here.

Radiation affects cells that are in vulnerable phases of their life cycles.  The most vulnerable times of life are in the pre and peri-natal stages,  and therefore women who are pregnant.  It is CRUCIAL that we understand that everything that happens to a pregnant mother, whether it be radiation exposure, drugs prescription or otherwise, alcohol, emotional trauma…  are felt and IMPRINTED into the fetus.  The child’s physical and emotional health will then be influenced by those factors.  It’s a miracle we all aren’t sick or insane.  On the other hand, we have one crazy planet on our hands. If you or someone you know has been affected by birth trauma, we have a miracle-worker therapist that comes to our clinic.  (call us).

The remaining population with great vulnerability is those that are already compromised by weakened immune systems such as in HIV, post-chemotherapy patients and some auto-immune disorders.  This article summarizes the reasons why pregnant women and infants through pubescent individuals are more likely to be affected by radiation, and what can be done to optimize their own protective mechanisms besides adding challenges to their immune systems such as dietary toxins (artificial sweeteners, sugar, processed meats, toxic fats).

Children grow rapidly. There are more cells dividing and a greater opportunity for radiation to disrupt the growth process than in adults.  Fetuses are even more highly sensitive to radiation. The resulting effects depend upon which systems are developing at the time of exposure.

Radiation causes several destructive processes to occur at the cellular and organ-functional levels:

1)    Rupturing of the cell membrane, allowing for fluids that should be kept outside the cell to come inside as ions and nutrients from the cell are lost.
2)    Disruption to the mitochondria, this interrupts the cells food supply (ATP). If the cell has a large reserve of ATP it can repair the damage and continue to produce ATP. The cell will eventually die from starvation if the dose of radiation is great enough or the cell is vulnerable enough.
3)    Lysosomal destruction. A lysosome is a cellular component that is damaged with only 500 rads, and by this disruption, enzymes are released within the cell and then start digesting structures within the cell itself.  In the case of large doses of radiation, even digestive enzymes secreted by the pancreas and stomach are rendered inactive.
4)    Nucleus Impairment. Perhaps the most sensitive part of the cell to radiation is the nucleus.  There is a wide band of sensitivity for cell nuclei, quantifying a dose range is difficult. The major effect of radiation here is the inhibition of DNA replication.  This means the cell is unable to prepare for division.  Before a cell divides it produces a complete set of chromosomes which carry all the information needed to reproduce the organism.  With damaged DNA, duplicate chromosomes cannot be manufactured.  If this process is delayed long enough, the cell dies and the death can be compared to death in childbirth.
5)    In pregnancy, radiation damage to mitotic processes.  This involves the replacement of stem cells with somatic cells that form our organs.

In 1906, Bergonie and Tribondeau exposed rabbit testes to X-Rays and observed the effects on the testicular reproductie cells.  They determined that radiosensitivity (vulnerability to radiation) is a function of the metabolic state of the cell being irradiated.  The degree of damage and mutation is exactly proportionate to the level of metabolism and division of that cell.  Therefore fetuses and infants are much more vulnerable to lower amounts of radiation than those with normal rates of cellular processes and development.  Stem cells are the most vulnerable, since they are not yet differentiated and have a very high mitotic rate.

Another effect of radiation passing through living cells is the direct ionization or excitation of atoms and molecules in the cell structure. These changes affect the forces that bind the atoms together into molecules.  If the molecule breaks up (dissociates) the fragments are called ‘free radicals’ and ions and are not chemically stable anymore.  Free radicals are electrically neutral structures with one unpaired electron. When a free radical interacts with healthy cells, they become unhealthy.

Most effects from radiation are of course from chronic exposure of a low dose over years.

The systems of the body most affected is the hematopoietic systems that include the bone marrow, lymph nodes, spleen and thymus glands.  The diseases associated with radiation exposure are Cancers of the bile ducts, bone, brain, breast, colon, esophagus, gall bladder, liver (primary site, but not if cirrhosis or hepatitis B is indicated), lung (including bronchiolo-alveolar cancer), pancreas, pharynx, ovary, salivary gland, small intestine, stomach, thyroid, urinary tract (kidney/renal, pelvis, urinary bladder, and urethra), leukemia (except chronic lymphocytic leukemia), lymphomas (except Hodgkin’s disease), and multiple myeloma (cancer of plasma cells).

Diseases of infants and children from radiation exposure is blindness, mental deficiency, coordination defects, deformation and physical subnormality.  Most abnormalities of the fetus are produced from exposures during the first trimester, particularly in the 2nd to 6th week.  Exposures as low as 25 rad have been shown to produce developmental changes. Less obvious effects can be seen in exposures at later periods of gestation.

Both the type of radiation and the pathway by which a person is exposed influence the overall effects. Different types of radiation vary in their ability to damage different kinds of tissue.  Radiation and radiation emitters (radionuclides) can perfuse the whole body or expose certain tissues when they are inhaled or swallowed.   Many kinds of ionizing radiation can cause cancer and other health effects.  The main difference in the ability of alpha and beta particles and gamma and x-Rays to cause health problems is the amount of energy they can deposit in a given space.  Their energy determines how far they can penetrate into tissue.  It also determines how much energy they are able to transmit directly or indirectly to tissues and the resulting damage.  Although an alfpha particle and a gamma ray may have the same amount of energy, inside the body, the alpha particle will deposit all of its energy in a small volume of tissue, where the gamma radiation will spread energy over a much larger volume. This is because alpha particles have a mass that carries the energy, and gamma rays do not.

As if that isn’t enough, radioactive elements/particles such as Uranium are toxic even when they are not radioactive.  The same with many other heavy metals.  There is research to suggest that the more heavy metal toxicity a person has (very common nowadays), the more likely that person is to absorb and retain radioactive nuclides. 

In my practice we have determined that there is a pronounced upward trend in heavy metal toxicity that can result in cognitive disorders, ADD, chronic infections, cancer and many other syndromes.  Europe and North America has seen rises recently in Lead, Mercury, Uranium, Cadmium, Arsenic, Aluminum and Lithium.  For example, recently we have seen a rise in Uranium.  This is not radioactive Uranium.  The element alone has been studied and has been found to block the processes of metabolism of carbohydrates by the inhibition of enzyme systems, creating a strong effect of fatigue and lowered oxygenation of cells. Uranium is present in air, water, and food, and most people consume tiny amounts of it daily.  Uranium is a heavy metal similar to tungsten, lead, mercury, and cadmium. As we said, its toxic chemical characteristics as a heavy metal are independent of its radiological characteristics.

More than a third of Britain is still contaminated by radioactivity from the Chernobyl disaster two decades ago, and children are getting cancer as a result.

Why are Children Really more Vulnerable?

Children are much more vulnerable to the harmful effects of radiation disasters than the general population because their bodies absorb and metabolize substances differently, and because they are more likely to develop certain cancers from such an exposure. They also are closer to the ground, where radioactive fallout settles. In addition to physical harm, children may suffer from loss of parents, separation from their homes, and post-traumatic stress.

Radioactive Iodine is the first isotope to consider in any nuclear fallout or disaster.  The dosages are designed to block the thyroid absorption of radioactive iodine in order to prevent thyroid cancer.  The treatment is normally harmless and should be only continued for acute exposures of high amounts of I-131 (see our Geiger counter page and our Radiation Protection I article) in the high levels usually found nearby a nuclear event.  Do not take Potassium Iodide, the blocking agent, if there is an autoimmune thyroid disease or if you do not know whether the radioactive Iodine is highly elevated where you are exposed.

How it works: The thyroid is the only part of the body that absorbs and stores iodine. By taking FDA Approved potassium iodide prior to exposure of radioactive iodine, your thyroid will become saturated with safe, stable iodine. This will prevent your thyroid's absorption of any additional iodine (radioactive or not) long enough for the radioactive iodine inhaled or ingested to be safely dispersed through the kidneys. Outcome: No Thyroid Cancer

We treat mothers and children with non-drug precision supplements for many maladies from developmental disorders, digestive complaints, behavioral complaints, as well as allergies.  In case of birth trauma, effects from anesthesia or drugs and other emotional trauma, we now have a trauma specialist on our team that uses a neurologically-based therapy called,  “Somatic Experiencing” that is the treatment of the future, and is very affordable.  Call Nicole for appointments at (831) 685-1125 or make your appointment through our website

Everything published made a bunch of sense. But, what about this?
what if you were to write a killer headline?

I ain't suggesting your content isn't good, but what if you added a headline that grabbed people's attention? I mean Protection for Children is kinda boring.
You ought to peek at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create news titles to grab
viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a picture or
two to get people interested about what you've got
to say. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.

Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs
I stumbleupon on a daily basis. It's always interesting to read through content from other writers and practice something from other websites.

Hello fantastic blog! Does running a blog such as this require a lot of work?

I've very little knowledge of computer programming however I was hoping to start my own blog in the near
future. Anyways, if you have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners please share.
I know this is off topic but I just had to ask.

Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to
her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had
to tell someone!

Your individual stuffs great. All the time handle it up!
0 #28 Guest 2014-07-24 00:42
Undeniably imagine that that you stated. Your favourite reason seemed to be at the net
the simplest thing to take into accout of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed at the same
time as other people consider issues that they plainly don't recognise about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and also defined out the whole thing with no need side effect , other
folks can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.

Look into my page: viagra price

You have touched some pleasant points here. Any way keep up wrinting.
0 #37 Guest 2014-07-27 13:47
May I simply say what a comfort to discover an individual who genuinely knows what they're talking
about on the web. You actually know how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
A lot more people have to look at this and understand this side of the story.
It's surprising you're not more popular because you surely have
the gift.
0 #38 Guest 2014-07-28 13:34
You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which
I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for
me. I am looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of
0 #39 Guest 2014-07-29 01:24
Fantastic beat ! I wish to apprentice while you amend your website, how can i subscribe
for a blog website? The account aided me a acceptable deal.
I had been a little bit acquainted of this your broadcast offered bright clear concept
0 #40 Guest 2014-07-29 03:11
I just like the valuable info you provide for your articles.

I'll bookmark your weblog and take a look at again here regularly.
I'm somewhat certain I'll learn plenty of new stuff right here!
Best of luck for the next!
