1. eat food with lots of calcium, iron, potassium, other minerals. metalic elements deflect radiation so the more you
"Uptake by Animals. Cattle and other animals may eat plants which contain radioactive materials from fallout. Studies have been made of the possibility of hazard to humans as a result of eating meat from such animals. These studies indicate that the bone-seeking radioisotopes are of the greatest potential concern, and that the chief among these is radiostrontium. Cattle absorb 25 to 30 percent of the ingested strontium, with about 25 per cent reaching the bone. A few days after entrance of radiostrontium into the body, about 99 percent of the remaining amount will be in the bones."
The AEC went on to say in that paragraph that '"The only potential hazard to human beings would be the ingestion of bone splinters which might be intermingled with muscle tissue during butchering and cutting of the meat," which, overwhelmingly, scientists later debunked as nonsense - strontium-90, they argued, builds up in bone from ingesting food and milk, not bone splinters. Jenkins, likewise, countered: " ...to say that bone splinters present the only hazard to human beings is patently absurd: no mention at all is made of milk and dairy products, the major pathway of strontium-90, iodine-131 and other radionuclides received from animal products."

I'm no scietist, and I don't know what the numbers stand for, but the radiation charts I looked at from links here at ATS this morning showed San Diego at about 9-13 and Denver at 57. I don't know why, military bases???
Dang it PHAGE! You mean my tin foil hat won't work either?
