THE CANCER TRUTH NEWSLETTER 06-01-2011
Fact or Fiction?
We are all aware of the massive earthquake that struck Japan on March 11th,
2011. This disaster has forever changed the country of Japan, and it is possible
that it may have changed the entire world as well. The damage at the Fukushima
nuclear plant and the resulting spewing of radiation into the earth’s
environment are now being monitored by every country in the world capable of
As a consulting physician for HealthPro Venezuela, and past Director of Public Health in the country
of Venezuela, I feel it is my responsibility to write this article due to the
constantly changing information that is being provided by governments and
scientific agencies around the world concerning the escaping radiation at the
Fukushima nuclear plant. With governments saying everything is OK and not to
worry, and the scientific community saying it is definitely not OK, and everyone
should be very worried, the normal person has little chance of deciphering what
is really happening.
Following are some compiled facts about the Fukushima nuclear accident and
resulting levels of radiation being reported. I would encourage you to read this
information so that you have a better chance to decide on your own if, or how,
you need to protect yourself and your family.
Comparing radiation levels at Fukushima
with safety standards, and even Chernobyl, is very sobering:
To accurately compare the below information on Chernobyl, to the amount of
radiation being released at Fukushima, please consider that the Chernobyl
accident was on one reactor and it burned for 8 to 10 days. At Fukushima there
are 6 reactors that have now failed. Along with the 6 failed reactors the
Fukushima Daiichi plant is storing over 600,000 spent fuel rods. These rods
represent 40 years of exchanged, highly radioactive rods, which are being stored
on site, with 70% of these old rods now being exposed. The Fukushima disaster
has been uncontained for 22 days at this writing, and is continuing.
• US limit for volunteers averting major nuclear escalation: 500 millisievert
• Current average limit for nuclear workers: 20 millisievert per year
• Typical dose near Chernobyl reactor 4 and its fragments, shortly after
explosion: ≈ 10–300 millisievert per hour. To explain, the radiation release at
Chernobyl was the equivalent to ten Hiroshima’s atom bombs. Chernobyl radiation
is responsible for the deaths of more than 16,000 people, with an estimated 1.4
million cancers in the 50 years following the accident.1
• Reported radiation beside reactor 3 at Fukushima I: 400 millisievert per
hour. This is what we know about 2 of the 6 reactors that have failed.
• Highest reported level during Fukushima accident: more than 1000 milli
sievert per hour reported as the level at a pool of water in the turbine room of
reactor two. Exposure to such an environment for four hours would raise the risk
of dying in 30 days. 2
• The Japanese Ministry of Health Labor and Welfare raised the maximum
allowable exposure for nuclear workers to 250 millisievert from 100
millisievert. It described the move as “unavoidable due to circumstances”.
• On April 29th, Toshiso Kosako, a Tokyo University professor and senior
nuclear adviser reporting directly to Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan,
resigned. He was appointed on March 16, five days after the disaster due to his
expertise on radiation safety. In a tearful press conference, he said the
government and its commissions had taken “flexible approaches” to existing laws
and regulation, and have ignored his advice. He said Tokyo officials had drafted
measures to deal with the accident that were not in accordance with the
Now that you have an understanding of
the severity of the accident and how the Japanese government is handling it,
following are some of the results of the radiation release.
Radioactive iodine-131 was found in a March 25 milk sample from Spokane, WA
as well as a March 28 milk sample in California. These are the first signs that
Japan’s nuclear accident is affecting U.S. food.
Although officials said the amounts detected are “far below levels of public
health concern,” advocacy groups such as Public Citizen have disagreed.
“There continues to be a significant risk of increased radiation releases
that could result in detrimental health and safety impacts to American
populations,” Tyson Slocum, research director of the energy program at Public
Citizen, said in an interview, “The emphasis appears to be on downplaying the
The Virginia Department of Health has issued a warning to state residents not
to drink rainwater.5
According to Energy News, radioactive Iodine-131 in a rainwater sample near
San Francisco was 18,100% above federal drinking water
Further more, the EPA has advised that iodine-131 levels in Pennsylvania and
Massachusetts exceeded the maximum contaminant level (MCL) permitted in drinking
water. Radioactive Iodine-131 in a Pennsylvania rainwater sample was 3300% above
the federal drinking water standard.7
As a result of these recent findings, The EPA and FDA said in a statement
that they have increased monitoring of radiation in milk, rain and drinking
So what does all of this mean, what are
the possible effects of this radiation and what can we do to protect ourselves?
Radiation exposure damages DNA, motor nerve cells, and other internal
structures of our cells, which can lead to cancer and other diseases. Radiation
can occur naturally, such as cosmic radiation or uranium and radon in the
earth’s crust or it can be man-made from sources such as nuclear power plants,
(Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant), X-rays, (TSA’s new full body scan), and other
Cells of the immune system and red blood cells are produced in the bone
marrow. These are bone marrow stem cells. Cell division and proliferation goes
on rapidly in the bone marrow and because there is a tremendous amount of cell
division going on in the bone marrow – more than almost any other place in the
body – the bone marrow is particularly sensitive to radiation. When the DNA of
the cells is damaged by the radiation the cells loose their ability to replenish
themselves. This is why people receiving radiation treatment tend to loose their
hair, and this is why your immune system is rapidly depleted by exposure to
Damaged motor nerves do not accurately tell muscles to contract and
move. This is sometimes referred to as muscle/nerve damage. In these
situations, the motor nerve is damaged, which can lead to the muscles being
weak, or non-responsive. It can make the person off balance. Situations like
this can start even a year after exposure is stopped. Inability to walk is often
The nerve damage from radiation can cause facial drooping, loss of hearing,
erectile dysfunction, infertility, and pain as well as mobility issues. It
can also cause ‘drop foot’…a leg becomes weaker so that it can only be
picked up off the floor an inch or so.
Radiation nerve damage can happen anywhere in the body and the nerves that
are damaged will define the types of problems.
Medications given for this problem only attempt to cover up the symptoms.
Sometimes the medications actually make the problem worse due to side effects of
these drugs. This can cause more problems instead of correcting the initial
The only way to correctly manage
radiation damage is to address the real cause, not the symptoms. The body will
heal if it is given the correct tools to do so. The correct tools are
(Note: Throughout this article it may appear that I am endorsing the use
of the LifeOne formula and the Supreme B formula, that’s because I am. I have
used these products extensively and have great confidence in them. However I am
not saying that you should buy and use them. The purpose of this article is to
inform you in straight talk of the challenges we now face with the Fukushima
radiation release. I recommend all of the following precautions and encourage
you to take the information I am providing and continue with your own research
to find what is right for you and your family. I am of the belief that this
radiation release will be with us for a long time and I feel now is the time to
act. Radiation exposure is cumulative and all forms interfere with
cellular activity and suppress immune system function. The sooner we
start protecting ourselves the better we will fair.)
How do we fight
The obvious place to begin is to try and remove the radiation from our
Chelation Therapy: How to rid yourself
of the radiation?
What is chelation therapy? Chelation therapy is the removal of harmful
substances from the body by having a chelating agent bind with the toxic
substance and thus allowing the body to remove that complex using its natural
mechanisms of waste product removal.
According to John Cranton of the Mount Rainer Clinic, some of the ingredients
included in chelation therapies are sodium bicarbonate, vitamin C, magnesium
sulfate, folic acid, pyridoxine (vitamin B6), cyanocobalamin
(synthetic vitamin B12) or hydroxycobalamin (a form of vitamin B12). 8
I would like to mention here that there is an increasing use of eatable clay
being used for chelation therapy, I would
advise caution here. Sustained use of eatable clay will deplete
the body of many of the necessary minerals such as magnesium, potassium,
calcium, sodium, etc., which are extremely important to the body. As an example,
magnesium is vital for sustaining the normal heartbeat and is used by physicians
to treat irregular heart rhythm.
The radiation leaking from the Fukushima plants contains radioactive
iodine-131, which can cause thyroid cancer.
Potassium iodide (or KI, as it’s known chemically) is a common form of salt
and is known to protect the thyroid gland from radiation and cancer caused by
radioactive iodine. One such product commercially available is Iodoral.
The chemical works quickly by saturating the thyroid with non-radioactive
iodine. That makes it difficult or impossible for radioactive iodine to be
absorbed by the thyroid. If the gland has enough iodine in it, the thyroid
doesn’t absorb any radioactive iodine and it is flushed out of the system in
“The thyroid needs iodine to produce the thyroid hormone,” explained Alvin
Powers, an endocrinologist and professor of molecular physiology and biophysics
at Vanderbilt University’s School of Medicine in Nashville, Tennessee.
“If there is radioactive iodide in anything we eat or drink it gets
concentrated in the thyroid, stays there and emits radiation in the thyroid,”
When taken before exposure, potassium iodide can provide protection for 24
hours. It also is beneficial if taken three or four hours after exposure,
medical experts advise.
Children are considered the most vulnerable to this form of radiation
exposure, which is usually absorbed by eating contaminated food or drinking
contaminated milk or water. After the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear accident, thyroid
cancer rates in children in Belarus and the Ukraine increased substantially.
“If radioactive iodide is in the thyroid it increases the chances of cancer
of the thyroid in future years,” said Powers. “How much the risk is increased is
controversial, but it increases the risk of thyroid cancer over all,
particularly in young people and children.”
Potassium iodine, however, does not protect against other forms of radiation
sickness. “All it protects against is the thyroid,” Powers said. “It’s important
people don’t think it protects against all the other things that can happen from
“Potassium iodide can provide important protection for one organ from
radiation due to one radionuclide,” says the Health Physics Society website.
“It can only provide protection for the thyroid gland from an intake of
radioiodine. It doesn’t have any value in protecting other organs of the body or
in providing protection from radiation from other radioactive nuclides,” the
To reverse the effects of, or to prevent
nerve damage due to radiation
It has been known for some time that increased levels of Thiamine (vitamin
B1) in the blood stream are very effective in reducing and reversing neuropathy
(damaged nerve cells). It is needed by the body to heal the nerve damage.
Neuropathy has also been found to be made worse by deficiencies of vitamin
B12 in the body. Vitamin B12 supports the sheathing that protects nerve cells
and has shown in studies that it promotes the regeneration and growth of nerve
Vitamin B12 is a nutrient that helps keep the body’s nerve and blood cells
healthy and is essential for making DNA, the genetic material in all cells.
B12 and folate (folic acid) are B complex vitamins that are necessary for
normal red blood cell formation, tissue and cellular repair, and the synthesis
of DNA. A B12 and/or folate deficiency reflects a chronic shortage of one or
both of these vitamins, and a supplement should be taken.
Radiation exposure can kill the cells that line the gastro intestinal tract,
which in turn can cause radiation-induced diarrhea and vomiting. Lactobacillus
acidophilus is recommended to re-establish the healthy flora used in normal
digestion that will help to reduce the diarrhea and vomiting. This is a common
side effect of people undergoing radiation therapy.
Radiation and the Immune
For purposes of practical radiation protection in humans, most experts agree
(including FEMA Emergency Management Institute) that Roentgen, Rad and Rem can
all be considered equivalent.
1 rad (Radiation Absorbed Dose) equals 10 millisievert – Remember that
radiation exposure is cumulative and in high exposure areas it is often measured
by the hour (400 millisievert per hour [mSv/h] equals 40 rads per hour). 11
The immune system is made up of networks of organs, cells and tissues that
are biologically programmed to destroy foreign organisms that may harm you. A
compromised immune system cannot work efficiently to protect the body, leaving
you open to illness or disease.
Low-Dose Radiation – Low-dose exposure to radiation may
cause a number of cellular structure mutations, as well as irregularities in the
placement and development of chromosomes in the body. Low-dose radiation
exposure is defined as full body exposure to below a 50-rad rating exposure.
Low-dose radiation has also been shown to affect the development, growth and
function of lymphocytes in both children and adults. Lymphocytes are white blood
cells that protect the body against a number of different types of infection. Be
aware of the risk of leukemia as a side effect of low-dose radiation exposure.
Lymphocytes are a front line defense mechanism of the body’s immune system.
High-Dose Radiation – High-dose radiation is considered to
be exposure of the entire body to radiation of above 50 rad. Effects of
high-dose radiation occur faster than those caused by low-dose exposure. White
blood cells may be destroyed within 48 hours. For several weeks after exposure,
more white cells die, leaving the body vulnerable to infection. Other side
effects may include fever and bleeding.
Extremely High Doses of Radiation – A person exposed to over
1,500 rad risk extreme danger of death, while individuals exposed to between 500
and 1,500 rad may experience severe organ damage. The risk of fatality is high
for those who receive such high doses of radiation, even following a bone marrow
The majority of all diseases can be connected to an immune system disorder at
some level. And, it will continue in its disordered state indefinitely unless
you do something about it. A problem here is that the damage to your immune
system takes place silently, you don’t know it’s happening, you just become
increasingly susceptible to disease. As you contract diseases, you go to the
doctor and get medicine that treats the symptoms that disease, but not your
deteriorating immune system, your recovery is temporary and often times
You won’t get better if your immune
system doesn’t get better.
There are many products available to bolster your immune system and I would
assume that almost any of them would be better than not doing anything, but some
are better than others. I have been prescribing the LifeOne formula for 8 years
and it is the best immune system enhancer that I have seen, nothing else comes
close in my opinion. You can do your own research on this, but do something,
protect your immune system because it is what protects you.
For a detailed explanation of what happened at the Fukushima nuclear plant,
in easy to understand language, go to the following report by Physicist, Dr.
Aharon Friedman PhD, at http://data.4noguilt.com/fukushimaV2.html. There is nothing
medical here; it is an explanation of the events leading up to a “melt down” and
While I do not endorse the statements of Dr. Friedman, I do consider it worth
reading as this disaster has happened, and radiation is being released into the
environment. Dr. Friedman says that a cover up is taking place so the government
of Japan can “save face”. I am not aware of any cover up in Japan, but if one
were occurring, I would personally assume that it is being done to prevent
widespread panic due to the massive amounts of radiation contamination.
You don’t have to believe that there is a cover up taking place. You don’t
have to believe that the escaping radiation is extremely dangerous. However, you
do have to accept that the disaster happened, and as a result, large amounts of
radiation are pouring into the environment. With that you have to accept that
the levels of measureable radiation have increased everywhere in the world in
just 20 days. And finally, you have to accept that any increase in the levels of
measureable radiation, even small amounts, are not good for you.
As a pre-caution that the worst-case scenario is true, and as a practicing
physician, I wrote this article to encourage all readers to protect themselves
and their families from the possible effects of this nuclear disaster, which I
personally believe is the worst in history, and will eventually affect the lives
of millions of people.
I recommend that you consider using the Supreme B formula in conjunction with
the LifeOne formula as a first line defense against the effects of radiation and
for immune system enhancement. Complete information on both of these natural
products can be found at this website http://www.lifeone.org.ve/. The future will reveal the
truth, but the time to protect yourself is now.
