This sounds like an old solution who's time has come.
Experts predict the worst radiation is coming to the American West Coast, and it's potentially worse than Japan's radiation levels. Many radiation protective supplements have been proposed, from iodine to various herbs.
Yet there is one that is overlooked even though it was used successfully in the hottest spots of ground zero in Fukushima.
Mega-dose vitamin C was used for workers who had to go into the reactors' plant site and clean up or repair the damage. The drawback is mega-dose vitamin C is usually administered by IV drip. Thanks to the Medical Mafia, it's hard to get in the USA.

Dr. Atsuo Yanagisawa, M.D., Ph.D., from the Japanese College of Intravenous Therapy,
took a group of men working on the Fukushima site and administered 25,000 mg (milligrams) or 25 grams of vitamin C as a pretreatment prior to entering the area.
After their work, they were clear of DNA damage and precancerous indicators upon thorough medical evaluations. The untreated workers showed DNA damage and precancerous indicators.
But they received a similar post treatment protocol for a couple of months and recovered completely. Great news, since we can't all prepare in advance.
The Japanese college's work and findings were withheld because TEPCO, the firm that owns the Fukushima plant, the Japanese government, and Japanese media has ignored them and their science based advice. (Doctor Yourself pdf, source below)
If you do check out the Doctor Yourself pdf, you'll find one item used orally on a daily basis, liposomal vitamin C. Liposomal vitamin C can be taken orally with lower dosage to equal those 25K IV C therapies.
That's because liposomal encapsulated C exceeds even IV C's ability to penetrate your cells, where it is ultimately needed.
After serious illness that caused Alan Smith to be in a coma and on life support, his family got Alan packets of a liposomal encapsulated C product called Lypo-Spheric to circumvent the hospital's resistance to administering 50 grams pf mega-dose IV C daily.
He took three packets or six grams daily for six days, and walked out of the hospital
after his extreme double pneumonia with leukemia complications coma. There was no trace of leukemia a year later either.
His dramatic hospital episode was presented accurately and well by New Zealand's version of 60 Minutes. (http://www.3news.co.nz
At first, cardiologist and orthomolecular specialist Dr. Thomas Levy couldn't believe what was happening with this oral Lypo-Spheric's ability to match or surpass clinical results of much higher doses of IV C.
Dr. Levy came to realize that the combination of vitamin C and essential phospholipids radically improved cellular bioavailability. No more than 20 percent of IV C gets into cells. But the Lypo-Spheric compound permits 90 percent of the C to get into cells.
Tiny particles of vitamin C coated with phospholipids create molecules of vitamin C coated with a substance similar to the cell walls. Thus those coated vitamin C molecules can slip into the cells easily.
Encapsulation also avoids diarrhea thresholds of normal oral C.
