(NaturalNews) Though it has already been nearly a year since the tragic earthquake and tsunami ravaged the eastern coast of Japan, toxic radiation from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility is still a serious global health threat. But one powerful way you can continue to protect yourself from radiation poisoning is to make sure you get plenty of calcium and selenium in your diet. Chris Busby, a British scientist and director of Green Audit, an environmental consultancy agency, recently wrote a short paper explaining how the body absorbs ionizing radiation, and how consuming the right nutrients helps to guard against this absorption. Calcium, he says, is one of the keys to preventing the uptake of damaging radiation, as is selenium and cesium carbonate or chloride. Since the radioactive substances being emitted from Fukushima are genotoxic, meaning they cause DNA and other genetic damage, it is crucial for your long-term health to thwart their absorption in any way possible.

Whether we realize it or not, we depend on the fact that the vast majority of the people around us are going to act in a civilized manner.
