How To Protect Yourself From Low-Level Radiation
As your health status affects your susceptibility to radiation, there are foods that promote optimal-health and create the most protective internal environment: whole grains, fresh vegetables, beans, sea vegetables, miso, tempeh and tofu, nuts and seeds. By cutting out (or reducing) meat, fat, sugar, and refined and processed foods, a new sense of well-being emerges; you consciously participate in creating your body. You can also build high-energy cells that are better able to resist radiation and other environmental health hazards.
