How much radiation do you get when you fly on an airplane? KC Craichy tells us what we can expect and how it will affect our lifetime radiation load. KC also shares what you can do to protect yourself against radiation damage.

Audio Transcription:

This is KC Craichy from LivingFuelTV, reporting on location from Tampa International Airport. Last week we discussed a topic of the airport scanners, and is that radiation load dangerous to you. We reported that that radiation is roughly equivalent to 2 to 4 minutes of travel on an airliner. So the obvious question came back to us. Well how much radiation am I getting when I’m flying on an airplane? And so we’re gonna deal with that topic today.

Standard airline travel, the short hops that most of us take, are not a big issue in term of radiation. It becomes a much bigger issue on long haul flights, at very high altitudes, or flights across the northern or southern hemispheres. As the north and south pole and higher altitudes don’t have as much atmospheric protection from radiation. A plane or an airliner is not protecting you against cosmic radiation from solar flares, exploding stars and so on. So you are getting the brunt of that as you travel. But a flight, say from New York to London, about 7 hours, is roughly equivalent to a chest X-ray. A flight from New York to Tokyo is roughly equivalent to 2 chest x-rays.

Now you know from the reporting we’ve done on this show on medical radiation and radiation loads and so on, that this is an issue. A lifetime load of radiation matters. So how much radiation have you gotten from CT scans, or mammograms, or other X-rays, or radiation in your life? So what do you do? If you’re going to fly to Tokyo, you just have to fly to Tokyo. So how do you protect yourself?

Well, the first thing you wanna do is go back and review our protocol, it’s the FDA protocol for nuclear fallout. The main thing there is iodine. If you take potassium iodine, say 130 milligrams, you’ve protected the thyroid from excess of ionizing radiation, because it absorbs the iodine and there are no extra pores for that. The first thing that gets damaged generally in radiation is the thyroid. So protect the thyroid.

Next, eat properly. When you’re on these flights it’s the radiation plus the terrible food from the airlines and the airports and the travel and so on. So carry super foods with you. Increase your broad spectrum antioxidants, like your LivingFuel Superfoods and so on. Take antioxidants like Astaxanthin. Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant, that actually increases your body’s ability to handle radiation. So, I hope this was helpful to you.

God bless you, and have a great day.

KC Craichy SuperHealth Podcasts: Preparing for the Emergency Room

KC Craichy shares important information about preparing for a trip to the emergency room. What you do now to get ready will help you make the right decisions when it happens.

Audio Transcription:

Welcome to LivingFuelTV. I’m KC Craichy, bringing you an important health alert.

Imagine, you get a call from one of your children. They’ve broken a bone or been injured in some way. Are you prepared to deal with this? Or are you just going to show up at the emergency room and let them do what they do? Unfortunately, that scenario has consequences.

Recently, I got a call, in fact eight weeks ago I got a call from my son, telling me he broke his collar bone. I got home and found that to be true. Now, I’m a researcher in this area, so I was prepared to deal with what I was going to encounter at the emergency room. So I gave him 130 mg of potassium iodide, actually 100 mg potassium iodide, based on the protocols, which we have presented to you in our medical radiation shows in the past. That’s the FDA nuclear fallout protocol to protect the thyroid. Because the thyroid is looking for iodine. You need to give it iodine so it doesn’t look for radioactive iodine from the radiation test. Get to the emergency room. Expect resistance. When they were going to do an x-ray, I said, “Please use a thyroid shield.” What is that? It’s a little lead cover to put over the thyroid. They put one over the body. I want one over the thyroid also. I encountered significant resistance, saying they wouldn’t be able to get their accurate picture of the collarbone with a thyroid shield. I insisted. They took the picture. It was a perfect picture, and all was well, but there was significant resistance.

You need to be prepared. Just hearing my words is not enough to prepare you. You have to do the research before you get into situations like that. We provide much of that research, medical studies and so on, on Livingfuel.com. You can check it out and read them for yourselves.

We went for followups with another practitioner four weeks later, and I asked for a thyroid shield. I already had given him the potassium iodide. They said, “No problem. We have one here. We just only use it when people ask for it.” I thought that was amazing, because the thyroid is the number one risk area in radiation studies. They did the perfect picture again. Two weeks later, for the last followup, we went back for the last time. It was a different radiation therapist or radiotherapist, and they resisted me. They would not use the thyroid shield and I insisted they did. They said they didn’t have one, so I told what room it was in and they got it and so on. It was a lot of information. But the point is if you meet this resistance and you haven’t done your own research, you are not going to be ready.

Now, there’s much research that’s come out in recent days. Again, we’ve been reporting on this for months and months and months, but CT scans for instance are extremely dangerous. Sometimes they are medically necessary, because head injuries are a big deal, particularly in youth sports, but it is very dangerous. There are alternatives. MRI is a better alternative. There are protocols to follow. We’re going to report more to you on that in the future, but we have significant information about that on the site today under medical radiation.

We hope this helps you. God bless you and have a great day.
