Record levels of radioactivity detected at Fukushima nuclear plant


Just days after officials from the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) came clean about using radiation reading "errors" to cover up record levels of radioactive strontium-90 present in collection pools at the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power facility back in July, the embattled power utility made headlines again for radioactive cesium-134 and radioactive cesium-137, both of which were also detected at dangerously high levels in groundwater near the plant.

This Vitamin Can Radically Reduce Damage from Radioactivity from Fukushima

As understanding of Vitamin D increases, it is becoming apparent that its most active form, Vitamin D3 (calcitriol), may offer protection against a variety of radiation-induced damages. Vitamin D’s protective action is carried by a wide variety of mechanisms, including cell cycle regulation and proliferation, cellular differentiation and communication, and programmed cell death (apoptosis).
