As I posted and wrote last night, the worst Nuclear Disaster in the history of humanity has been unfolding in the past three months.  People I know, including my family, ESPECIALLY those who work in the upper levels of the medical field, I am challenged and patronized on the topic of radiation fallout, and told that the authorities have not said a word and that there really is nothing to be concerned about. They insist that only a negligible amount of radiation might reach our shores.  Unfortunately, it is no longer a prediction, but a reality. 

Radiation is an insidious attacker: it strikes in time, measured in years, not hours, nor days.  Because of that, many fail to accord it proper importance, with regrettable repercussions.  Make no mistake about it, radiation kills.  It causes various cancers, it ages everything it touches, it wreaks havoc within a body, destroying life.  At the very least, radiation is an endocrine disruptor. 
For those of you who are concerned, I've compiled some helpful sites and information, in order to stay vigilant and protect your health:
