Importance of Biodex Radiacwash Towelettes.
Radiacwash towelettes, are a chelating solution and can help
wipe away radioactive contamination. Radiacwash works better
than plain soap and water on metal isotopes and isotopes bound
to metals.  

These towelettes are U.S. Dept of Homeland Security (DHS)
approved and can be used safely for radiation decontamination of
unbroken skin and surfaces. Use in conjunction with showering.
Remember also that after use, these towelettes will have been
contaminated, as will the towels you use in the shower. Discard
all!

How to filter radiation from water

How to filter radiation from your water.
Do you have a radiation filter for your water? In the event of a
radiation emergency you can improve your chances for survival
with a proper filter. Keep this page bookmarked as the filters are
likely sold out as the
North Korean crisis escalates, but they will
eventually be back in stock.

You can't boil your water to remove radiation. For nuclear
disasters, similar to what occurred in Fukishima Japan where
drinking water sources became contaminated with radioactive
waste and radioactive by products, you need a special filter.

How to filter radiation from water
Wondering how you might filter radiation from water in an
emergency? Here's a few tips to remember:
  • Boiling water does not remove radioactive material!
  • Reverse osmosis does not remove all radioactive isotopes (It
    does not remove Iodine-131, but Seychelle does).
  • After a radioactive event, any drink that's sealed is safe,
    including bottled waters and juices (just wipe the outside of
    the container before opening it).

Is there a water filter for radiological contaminants?
Yes! The answer for how to filter radiation from your water is a
Seychelle radiological water pitcher or personal water straw. It is
also an advanced filter which means the filter removes up to
99.99% of viruses, contaminants and pollutants found in drinking
water sources using its proprietary Ionic Adsorption Micron
Filtration System as well as all the radiological contaminants.

The
Seychelle Family Radiological Water Filter, right, removes
Radiological Contaminants such as Gross Beta, Radon 222, Alpha
Radium 226, Plutonium, Uranium, Cesium 134 and 13!

Cancer patients
People suffering from cancer can help reduce their exposure to
radiological contaminants in their water by having a Seychelle
water pitcher.In our radioactive world, we humans are exposed to
radiation from materials in the earth itself, as well as from
naturally occurring radon in the air. We face exposure of
radiological contaminants from outer space, and also from the
medical procedures you may undergo. Radiological contaminants
are also inside you from the food and water you consume.

That's why it's critically important for your health to remove the
radiation from your water.

The Seychelle Radiological filter removes the four basic zones of
contamination:
  1. Aesthetic (Chlorine, taste and odor),
  2. Chemicals (from Industry and Agriculture),
  3. Dissolved Solids (heavy metals such as lead, mercury,
    Chromium 6); and
  4. Radiological Contaminants (up to 99.99%such as Gross
    Beta, Radon 222, Alpha Radium 226, Plutonium, Uranium,
    Cesium 134 and 137. Removes up to 90% of fluoride.

Seychelle filters for these radioactive contaminants:

Seychelle also filters chemical contaminants:
  • Industrial VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds),
  • PBCs
  • THMs (Trihalomethanes)
  • Detergents
  • Pesticides
  • Herbicides
  • Fungicides
  • Insecticides, (DDT)
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Dissolved Solids
  • Fluoride
  • Heavy metals such as Aluminum, Arsenic, Asbestos,
    Cadmium, Chromium 6, Copper, Lead, Mercury, etc.

Reservoir of the radiological family water pitcher, pictured
immediate right, holds one-half gallon of water. It's BPA-free and
easy to use. You will be able to filter 150 gallons of water, after
which you will need to replace the filter.

Use Seychelle with chlorinated or disinfected water supply only.
It's not intended for use with private wells, rivers, or streams,
which is why you'll want to pair the Seychelle family water pitcher
or Seychelle personal water with a Big Berkey.

Seychelle also will not work with ocean water. You will need to
desalinate. Salt dissolves easily in water, and forms chemical
bonds that are so strong they are difficult to break.

WaterBob and Seychelle make a great pair!
Water that's in containers in your home, such as a toilet tank or
hot water heater will be free of radioactive material. Immediately
following a radiological disaster, you should consider these
potable water sources.

Another thing you can do is to immediately fill the bathtubs with
water using a special

Berkey and Seychelle Makes a great pair!
Right is the Seychelle Radiological filter, which removes the four
basic zones of contamination: Aesthetic (Chlorine, taste and
odor), Chemicals (from Industry and Agriculture), Dissolved Solids
(heavy metals such as lead, mercury, Chromium 6) and up to
99.99% of Radiological Contaminants such as Gross Beta, Radon
222, Alpha Radium 226, Plutonium, Uranium, Cesium 134 and
137. Removes up to 90% of fluoride.

Is radioactive water worth worrying about?
Yes, even when the world is at peace, you will find radiological
contaminants.

  • Fukushima, Japan. The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster
    that happened on March 11, 2011 is affecting the water
    supply in the United States, including California beaches. It
    will continue to leak radioactive water until around 2020.


  • Water in Pennsylvania. The Greene County, PA stream
    found elevated levels of radiation, near the municipal water
    supply according to Pittsburgh's Action News 4. "High levels
    of radiation—up to 60 times higher than the maximum
    allowed in drinking water," were been found in a stream that
    feeds into a water treatment plant. Further, "The results
    showed levels of radium 226 and radium 228 totaling 327
    picocuries per liter at one location, and 301 picocuries per
    liter of radium 226 at another location," according to the
    news agency.

Finding available safe drinking water is a primary concern as your
ground water could be contaminated by nuclear elements. ..
