Experts still fear the possibility of a large-scale nuclear meltdown is about 50/50 from the Fukushima Dai-ichi’s power plant.

Here’s a brief disclosure of the timeline, so far.

The initial nuclear explosion you saw captured on the news, Friday March 11th, sent dust and debris flying high into the sky. The Japanese government claimed there was no threat to public health . . . That was at 7:37am.

By 10:51 pm Saturday night, we were told the cooling system for the second reactor also failed. Then, just after midnight, early Sunday morning officials reveal that they’ve been releasing “radioactive steam” from the core of the first reactor.

At 4:24 am, we are informed that two “reactor meltdowns” are taking place.

By 5:00pm, more than 200,000 people are evacuated from the area. Six hours later the first reports of radiation exposure start pouring out.

2:00 am. Monday morning, an explosion also breaches #3 reactor’s outer concrete walls. Two hours later, nearly 200 people are reported to have radiation poisoning.

3:00 pm. Japan admits all three reactors are in meltdown, while the Cabinet Secretary claims there is no danger of radiation exposure.

11:00pm. The third nuclear reactor explodes!

Tuesday morning, 2:30 am. “The fourthnuclear reactor is melting down, releasing even more radiation into the atmosphere. The remaining 190,000 residence are told to lock down and stay inside as radiation readings soar.

8:00am. “The fifth and sixth” reactors begin to meltdown . . .

As powerful aftershocks shake Japan, they are continuing to release the pressurized radioactive gases caused by the six reactors into our sky, which means there is a real possibility of contaminating the jet stream.

Whether you believe that dangerous levels of radiation have already entered into the weather system or not, the threat of exposure to harmful radioactive gases and particles is still a present danger.

Historically, we know that when radiation levels rise, cancer rates increase.

The harmful effects of radiation are no secret. The danger of skin cancer, lung cancer, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, testicular cancer and brain cancer are rising. So, what can YOU do to protect yourself and your loved ones?

Not everyone has access to gas masks, fallout shelters or a HAZMAT suits. But, if the radiation gets that bad, it’s only a matter of time anyway.

Regardless, the fact remains that you and I can expect low radiation readings to be “a thing of the past,” whether they figure out how to contain the meltdown of six nuclear reactors or not.

The first thing you can do is to make sure you don’t have an “iodine deficiency.” Some experts estimate that 95% of Americans have iodine deficiencies.

How does having enough iodine in your cells help?

When your body lacks iodine, your cells will attach to any form of iodine available. Radioactive iodine is a deadly isotope that will destroy your cellular tissue, so it’s obviously the last form of iodine you want to take in.

Building your immune system as best as possible will give you the best opportunity to survive the adverse effects of the initial radiation. Iodine can help.

The best forms of oral supplementation are “nascent iodine” or “Lugol’s iodine.

If all you have is the topical form of iodine, in the case of an emergency, rubbing it on your skin will help protect against mild radiation exposure.

In tomorrow’s post, I will cover more about what you can do. This letter’s purpose is to instill a sense of urgency and give you hope as we pray for those people caught in harm’s way of this tragic event.

You were born to heal,
