“Radiation burns because it vibrates faster than anything else in the body.  Phosphorus is the highest frequency naturally occurring substance in the body….”There are many sources of radiation:  natural and manmade.  We are exposed to radiation from the sun, radon, x-rays, and numerous other unavoidable as well as escapable sources.  For instance, flying in the ozone (37,000 ft.) is equivalent to three-to-five chest x-rays”….”Radiation has a number of different effects on the body.  First of all, it leeches trace minerals. To prevent deficiency conditions from arising, it is important to replace lost minerals.  Otherwise, it seems that the body scavenges for what it needs by cannibalizing bones, teeth, and fingernails.  To know whether or not you are possibly trace mineral deficient, …you can look at your fingernails.  If they are ridged and pitted, odds greatly favor that your bones are not in any better condition.”…Radiation is also toxic.  To pull the poison out of the body, try bathing in half a cup of sea salt and half a cup of baking soda.  Soak for at least 20-30 minutes, every day for three weeks or every other day for six weeks. . . or go on a vacation to the West Indies or South Pacific and swim in the ocean every day for three weeks!  This draws some of the radiation out of the body.  Supplement with trace minerals even if swimming or bathing in salt water.”……”secondary effects of radiation often take many years to manifest clinically…”

“Melatonin (N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine), the chief secretory product of the pineal gland in the brain, is well known for its functional versatility. In hundreds of investigations, melatonin has been documented as a direct free radical scavenger and an indirect antioxidant, as well as an important immunomodulatory agent. The radical scavenging ability of melatonin is believed to work via electron donation to detoxify a variety of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species, including the highly toxic hydroxyl radical. It has long been recognized that the damaging effects of ionizing radiation are brought about by both direct and indirect mechanisms. The direct action produces disruption of sensitive molecules in the cells, whereas the indirect effects ( approximately 70%) result from its interaction with water molecules, which results in the production of highly reactive free radicals such as *OH, *H, and e(aq)- and their subsequent action on subcellular structures. The hydroxyl radical scavenging ability of melatonin was used as a rationale to determine its radioprotective efficiency. Indeed, the results from many in vitro and in vivo investigations have confirmed that melatonin protects mammalian cells from the toxic effects of ionizing radiation. Furthermore, several clinical reports indicate that melatonin administration, either alone or in combination with traditional radiotherapy, results in a favorable efficacy:toxicity ratio during the treatment of human cancers. This article reviews the literature from laboratory investigations that document the ability of melatonin to scavenge a variety of free radicals (including the hydroxyl radical induced by ionizing radiation) and summarizes the evidence that should be used to design larger translational research-based clinical trials using melatonin as a radioprotector and also in cancer radiotherapy. The potential use of melatonin for protecting individuals from radiation terrorism is also considered.”
