I have studied all the protective benefits of iodine and am totally convinced it’s a great solution for healthy living, but what about those of us who are taking thyroid medication and are auto-immune (Hashimoto)? As much as I’d like to get off of it, I don’t want to mess with my thyroid, I’ve learned that any of the iodine products would worsen the condition. What does one do if there’s a nuclear attack or Fukashima radiation continues to increase. It’s already on the coast of California where I am and is airborne in the eastern part of the states. Besides, it’s in our food, water, and fish as the levels of radiation increase. I feel left out 🙁
This publication is the new edition of the International Basic Safety Standards. The edition is co-sponsored by seven other international organizations — European Commission (EC/Euratom), FAO, ILO, OECD/NEA, PAHO, UNEP and WHO. It replaces the interim edition that was published in November 2011 and the previous edition of the International Basic Safety Standards which was published in 1996. It has been extensively revised and updated to take account of the latest finding of the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation, and the latest recommendations of the International Commission on Radiological Protection. The publication details the requirements for the protection of people and the environment from harmful effects of ionizing radiation and for the safety of radiation sources. All circumstances of radiation exposure are considered.
In October, the Programme of Action for Cancer Therapy brought together regional experts, representatives of international organizations and manufacturers of radiotherapy equipment in Vienna for the Fourth Meeting of the Advisory Group on increasing access to Radiotherapy Technology (AGaRT) in low and middle income (LMI) countries. The meeting's 35 participants met to endorse affordable, appropriate and suitable radiotherapy technologies and turn-key solutions for low and middle income Member States, and to discuss the preparation of guidelines for radiotherapy sales and service contracts to guarantee long-term radiotherapy functionality.
