-- With the horrific tsunami in Japan and the nuclear reactor disaster that followed, there is grave concern here in North America about the radiation fallout. As the radiation travels across the Pacific and lands in North America, naturally we are concerned about radiation poisoning.
The phone calls at a Vancouver-based business have increased since the Japanese nuclear reactor disaster, as Fresh-N Home Products creates products containing natural zeolites.
Zeolites are used extensively in the cleanup of nuclear disasters. Three Mile Island, PA used a combination of synthetic and natural zeolites to clean contaminated waters. Natural zeolite was used to absorb the radiation released into the Irish Sea at Sellafield, U.K. and to capture isotopes from leaking repository containers at West Valley, NY, according to Frederick Mumpton, a leading zeolite specialist.
We have been assured by our governments that the radiation is so high up in the atmosphere that it won’t affect us, but there is still concern. In fact, from the numbers supplied by the Canadian and US governments, you are being exposed to more radiation by using your cell phone or watching your TV than from the power plant in Japan.
However, zeolites will help to absorb that radiation, no matter where it comes from and will absorb many times their weight in toxins and gases. Placing zeolite pouches around the house may help reduce the radiation impact in your personal environment.
