Does North Korea have the ability to build an H-Bomb in the near future?
It’s a question many folks have found themselves wondering lately. Perhaps even you.
And just as important, if they do would they really violate the international Limited Test Ban Treaty and test it in the atmosphere?
While we can’t say for sure, the country’s volatile leader Kin Jong-un has certainly threatened to do just that. And there is a troubling pattern to consider.
North Korea’s nuclear testing is escalating
Since 2006, North Korea has conducted six nuclear tests, which have steadily grown in their power.
The latest, possibly a hydrogen bomb, was the most powerful yet. When detonated in September, it caused an earthquake measuring 6.1 on the Richter scale.
So far, the nuclear tests have all be conducted underground, limiting the radioactive fallout. But the scale of the latest test, along with the increasing threats, has raised concerns about nuclear contamination and radiation exposure.
Nuclear test fallout could be devastating
Most experts say North Korea’s underground tests haven’t posed a significant health threat to us here in the United States, or those living in Europe.
But troubling reports from folks who have recently defected from the country say the area surrounding the test site has become a barren wasteland. They report wells running dry and, worst of all, a rise in strange illnesses and horrific birth defects.
And should Kim Jong-un make good on this threat of an atmospheric nuclear test we could ALL be in danger. The construction of the bomb, the detonation site, and even weather patterns can all have an impact of how far reaching the radioactive nuclear fallout would be.
In other words, here in the United States we could end up getting an extra dose of radiation on scale with what we saw from Fukushima or Chernobyl. Or we could have an environmental and health disaster on our hands.
Radiation exposure raises cancer risks
But the truth is, although many experts downplay their negative effects, the continued radiation exposure from past testing is far from benign. And as we’ve explained before, radiation exposure is cumulative.
In fact, according to The National Resources Defense Council—a group of physicians that opposes nuclear weapons—2.4 million people could die from cancer caused by the over 2,000 known nuclear tests that have already taken place worldwide.
Build a shield against radiation with supplements
We can’t do anything about the past. And we certainly can’t control the future. So that makes this a pound of prevention kind of situation.
We all encounter a variety of invisible radiation every day from the smartphones we cart around in our pockets to the fallout from long past nuclear tests and accidents. So it just makes sense to do what we can to arm ourselves against the oxidative damage that exposure causes.
Following are six supplements that can help you start to build your own personal shield.
1. Green tea:
Fights the inflammation, oxidative stress and DNA damage caused by radiation exposure.
2. Alpha lipoic acid:
Defends against free radicals and can help protect against radiation damage even years after being exposed.
A free radical fighter that protects your cells from oxidative stress and helps repair damaged DNA.
A chlorophyll rich algae that can help keep your thyroid from absorbing radioactive iodine.
5. Vitamin C and E:
Vital vitamins that help protect against the oxidative damage caused by radiation exposure.
Start shielding yourself against radiation exposure starting today.
