Melatonin, Vitamin C, garlic, onions, juicing whole citrus fruits, kelp and nori, and wheat grass juice are some of the simpler nutritional protections recommended for radiation protection by Gary Null. He lists many more 22 minutes into this podcast.
This is a re-post from two years ago. I added the helpful gif below for your edification and amusement.
I’ve always been annoyed that at this beautiful time of the year, just when the air cools, I unfortunately also start to sneeze and itch from airborne allergies. On general principals I avoid taking man-made chemicals into my body, without absolute need. Many antihistamines cause drowsiness and slow reaction times. There is also some concern that they act in a way similar to other chemicals that have been shown to promote cancerous tumor growth. So here are a few things I’ve found that help me deal with my pollen allergies without antihistamines.
Tell me your favorite natural remedy for pollen allergies in the comments. I’ve used homeopathic remedies with some success in the past, but I find the methods listed above to be more reliable.
The Drugging of our Children: A documentary from health-advocate Gary Null. The first half is about Attention Deficit Disorder, and how the educational, and child-welfare system often advocate drugging children as a solution for fidgeting and boredom.
The second half deals with SSRI drug dangers, such as hallucination, suicide, depersonalization and amnesia. Eric Harris, one of the Columbine shooters, was on Luvox at the time. We see what I think is home video of Harris and Kliebold playing with guns, and being stupid. There is also security camera footage from the actual event. The credits list several people for re-enactments, some of that might be mixed in as well. It is hard to tell.
The interviews with the families and victims of the administration of these drugs are heart-wrenching. Corey Baasgaard describes waking from a dream-state, in confinement with no memory of taking a high-powered rifle into his third-period English class, herding his classmates and teacher into a corner, holding them at gunpoint for 45 minutes, and then being persuaded by the principal into giving up his gun. He was using Effexor, his dose had just been upped to 300mg. His father tells how long, tedious and meticulous the weaning from this drug was. It took an extremely gradual reduction of Corey’s dose over a period of months, during which time if he took too little he would become extremely emotional. It seems insane that any drug that can creates such a degree of dependence can be so easily prescribed.
Michael Moore is extensively interviewed, he says that he would have been a perfect candidate for an ADD diagnosis as a child, and that he didn’t consider these drugs in shooting “Bowling for Columbine.”
Oddly enough Neil (Ignite Educational Software, Silverado scandal, brother of the president) Bush is interviewed and is an anti-drugging advocate. His profitable software uses cartoons and rap music to hold attention instead.
Nutrition, avoidance of lead, sugar and allergens are suggested as alternatives to ADD drugs.
Fire in Lower Manhattan: The 40-story Deustche Bank building is on fire, sending billows of smoke into the sky over Ground Zero. The building has been empty since 9/11, destabilized beyond repair by the events of that day and awaiting demolition for years â€” a process that finally began recently, on a floor-by-floor basis, according to this AP report. The cause of the fire is, so far, unknown.
The wind is from the west, similar to what it was on 9/11. It would be prudent to avoid the area. And if you live in lower Manhattan and possibly Brooklyn, think about keeping your windows closed for at least tonight. That’s what I’m doing. I hope this is not arson. Two firefighters have been killed.
I took the above shot around 8, as you can see there are no great plumes of smoke, but I could see a faint trail heading east, and the moon is definitely fuzzy behind haze of some sort.
The Deutshe Bank Building, if it could be seen, would be slightly to the left of the Woolworth Building (the one with the pointed roof). I’ve smelled nothing more acrid than usual in the air here on East Houston Street.

Consider using the “Egyptian Method”: wet a sheet or bath towel that is large enough to cover you with cool or cold water, and wring it or run it through the spin cycle on a washing machine until the sheet is quite damp but not dripping wet. Place the dry towel or sheet on your bed underneath your body and use the wet sheet as your blanket. The damp blanket will keep you cool. A tip that I might end up using before the Summer is over. From How to Sleep Comfortably on a Hot Night
UPDATE 8/1/06: I tried this last night using a thin beach towel and it worked really well. With a fan blowing over me I was comfortably chilled. A heat index hovering around 110 is predicted for the next three days. The higher the humidity the less effective evaporative cooling is. This will be a real test for the Egyptian method. The wet towel on the neck technique, below, also works.
Place wet towel on the back of your neck and also the top of one’s head. Athletic team doctors have used this for years!
Papers: DuPont Hid Chemical Risk Studies
DuPont Co. hid studies showing the risks of a Teflon-related chemical used to line candy wrappers, pizza boxes, microwave popcorn bags and hundreds of other food containers, according to internal company documents and a former employee.

Glenn Evers, a former employee at DuPont’s Edge Moore plant near Wilmington, Del., left, discusses Teflon at Environmental Working Group in Washington, Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2005. Dr. Tim Kropp, Environmental Working Group senior staff toxicologist is at right.
The chemical Zonyl can rub off the liner and get into food. Once in a person’s body, it can break down into perfluorooctanoic acid and its salts, known as PFOA, a related chemical used in the making of Teflon-coated cookware.
EPA TO ALLOW PESTICIDE TESTING ON ORPHANS & MENTALLY HANDICAPPED CHILDREN
The rule allows for government and industry scientists to treat children as human guinea pigs in chemical experiments in the following situations:
1. Children who “cannot be reasonably consulted,” such as those that are mentally handicapped or orphaned newborns may be tested on. With permission from the institution or guardian in charge of the individual, the child may be exposed to chemicals for the sake of research.
2. Parental consent forms are not necessary for testing on children who have been neglected or abused.
3. Chemical studies on any children outside of the U.S. are acceptable.
Eleven EPA employee unions representing over 7000 environmental and public health professionals of the Civil Service have called for a moratorium on drinking water fluoridation programs across the country, and have asked EPA management to recognize fluoride as posing a serious risk of causing cancer in people. The unions acted following revelations of an apparent cover-up of evidence from Harvard School of Dental Medicine linking fluoridation with elevated risk of a fatal bone cancer in young boys.
