Not the best news if you live on the west coast of Canada or the United States due to the Japanese earthquake and tsunami of 2011.

Radiation levels are already increasing in the food and water, babies born with thyroid issues linked to radiation are rising quickly and governments in Canada and the United States are raising the “acceptable levels” of certain toxic substances in the food being shipped in from Japan.

The little picture top left shows the flow of radiation from the Fukushima nuclear plant after the devastating earthquake and tsunami of 2011, radiation reaching almost past Hawaii more than a year ago. If that radiation screamed across the Pacific Ocean that far in one year, just how far do you think it has gotten since then?

Samples of milk taken across the United States have shown radiation at levels 2000 percent higher than EPA maximums.  The reason that milk is so significant is that it is representative of the entire food supply. According to an article published on Natural News, “Cows consume grass and are exposed to the same elements as food crops and water supplies. In other words, when cows’ milk starts testing positive for high levels of radioactive elements, this is indicative of radioactive contamination of the entire food supply.”

The FDA and the Environmental Deception Protection Agency, instead of refusing to prohibit the sale of tainted foods and mandatory testing of foods produced and harvested from the Pacific Coast, have simply raised the “acceptable levels”  of radioactive material in foods.

If that isn't scary enough, take a look at the list of foods you are now supposed to be wary of, you know, for only the next 30,000 years.

How can we protect ourselves? First, be aware of what items are likely to be highly tainted.

  • SEAFOOD:  Question the origin of ALL seafood.  Fish and crustaceans from the Pacific Ocean should all be considered to be poisoned with radiation.

  • WATER:  The rainfall and snowfall are all radiated. Do not drink any water that has not been filtered. The tap water that flows from your faucet has NOT been treated to rid it of radioactive particles. A recent report from the NY Times stated, “A rooftop water monitoring program managed by UC Berkeley’s Department of Nuclear Engineering detected substantial spikes in rain-borne iodine-131 during torrential downpours …

  • DAIRY PRODUCTS: Milk and milk products from the West Coast states currently have the highest levels of radiation in North America.

  • PRODUCE: Leafy Vegetables, Wines, Tomatoes, Strawberries….all produce from California or any other West Coast State are also likely to be tainted.

  • MEAT: If an animal eats any leafy vegetable all along the West Coast, that animal has consumed radiation, and is poisoned. This is any animal from cows, pigs, goats, sheep to wild deer and other game.

If you eat the above foods from areas with high radiation levels, you are eating radiation and feeding it to your children. Slowly the radiation levels within your body will build up. This is PERMANENT.

Infant mortality rates across the United States have increased by more than 35% since the nuclear disaster, according to a court statement by Dr. Sherman with independent scientist Leuren Moret, MA, PhD. A study published in The International Journal of Medicine indicates that more than 20,000 deaths right here in North America can be directly attributed to the release of radioactive material from Fukushima.

Radioactive isotopes of the type released from Fukushima have a half-life of 30,000 years.  This means that we must permanently change the way we prepare our food.

  • Wash your food with soap and rinse it in filtered water. 
  • Be aware of the origins of your vegetables, fish, game and seafood.
  • Keep abreast of radiation levels to help monitor where your food is acquired.
  • Use only filtered water for drinking, cooking and ice.

In the fat of dairy products contains the hormone estrogen which may fuel hormone-related cancers such as cancers of the breast and prostate, research suggests.

In one study of breast cancer patients, women who ate more than one serving daily of high-fat dairy products were about 50 percent more likely to die of breast cancer than other patients. This study was published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute in March 2013.

Other studies have suggested that people who consume high amounts of milk and cheese have higher rates of cancer.

Researchers say that the link may be due to estrogen; this hormone is soluble in fat, so it is found in higher concentrations in high-fat dairy than in lower-fat options, such as skim milk. Some types of breast cancer have estrogen receptors and are fueled by estrogen.

A diet rich on folate and the related folic acid, which are forms of a B vitamin, may be beneficial when it comes to breast cancer, some studies have shown.

A study on postmenopausal women found that those who took a lot of folate supplements were 22 percent less likely to have breast cancer, compared with those with very low folate intake.

Folate may be protective, particularly against estrogen-receptor-negative types of breast cancer, the researchers concluded in their article, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in December 2008.

While native populations in areas like the tropics and the Amazon have been aware of graviola's medicinal properties for centuries, western medicine is just now beginning to research the healing powers of this plant.

Below lists how graviola's leaves, bark, seeds and fruit can be used to fight a number of ailments and disorders.

How to use graviola

  • Graviola fruit for juice

If the graviola fruit is available, make juice or eat it raw. In the tropics, graviola can be found in local markets (also called sour sop or guanĂ¡bana). The sour, delicious fruit can also be used to make frozen deserts. The actual fruit is good for combating intestinal parasites, bring down fevers, increase mother's milk production and stop diarrhea.

  • Graviola leaves and bar for tea

Make tea from graviola bark and leaves. This bitter tea is used to treat a wide range of ailments and disorders including insomnia, hypo- and hypertension, seizures and diabetes.

  • Unriped graviola fruit and leaves for oil

Make graviola oil by crushing the leaves and unripened fruit of the plant and then mixing them with olive oil. When rubbed on the body, this oil can treat neuralgia, rheumatism, arthritis, boils, sores, rashes and other dermatological disorders.

  • Graviola seeds for environmentally friendly pesticide

Crush the seeds. The seeds of the plant function as a pesticide. When crushed into a powder they can be used to combat head lice. Crushed graviola seeds can be used against external and internal parasites.

  • Graviola drugs for cancer

Wait for the pill. A 1976 study by the National Cancer Institute identified a chemical compound in graviola that may be used in the future to combat particularly resistant forms of cancer. Currently, pharmaceutical companies and universities are conducting research on graviola, to develop a new form of chemotherapy.

The National Cancer Institute first noted the anticancer activity of graviola leaves in 1976, in an internal study not publicly released. Much of the subsequent research has been conducted at Purdue University in Indiana [source: Bluestein].

The studies concentrate on the antitumor properties and selective toxicity of annonaceous acetogenins. In 1997, the Purdue team announced that these phytochemicals, in studies, appeared especially effective at destroying cells that had survived chemotherapy. Such cells can develop resistance to several anti-cancer agents, earning the name multi-drug resistant (MDR). Typically, less than two percent of cancer cells have MDR properties, but this small set can quickly multiply after initial chemotherapy, rendering subsequent rounds of chemo useless. Expelling the anti-cancer agents requires large amounts of cellular energy, which MDR cells acquire from the chemical ATP. Acetogenins inhibit ATP transfer into these cells, retarding their function in a process that eventually leads to cell death. This process bypasses the healthy cells, which do not require infusions of ATP [source: Taylor].

These research findings have generated tremendous excitement, as well as an effort to market graviola supplements. Skeptical analysts point out that test-tube experiments are only a preliminary stage in cancer research, and it is therefore premature to ascribe a potent anticancer effect to graviola. Nevertheless, one study claimed that graviola was 10,000 times more effective against cancer than the well-known chemotherapy drug Adriamycin, and this dubious assertion has found its way to numerous promotional sites [source:]. Ralph Moss, a respected cancer writer who has been critical of mainstream oncology, comments that "astounding claims concerning cancer cures spread like a virus from Web site to Web site." However, Moss admits that graviola is "of potential importance to the future of medicine" [source: Moss]. Its increasing popularity indicates that some individuals are not content to wait for the blessing of the scientific establishment.

Waiting on a Synthetic

Pharmaceutical companies have succeeded in reproducing several annonaceous acetogenins in the laboratory. They are presently tinkering with chemical structures, with the goal of creating a synthetic acetogenin unique enough to patent and effective enough to market. They cannot patent the natural phytochemical, and therefore cannot assure a profit from it. This may explain the conundrum of why no clinical studies have been done on such a promising medicinal plant [source: Taylor].

While graviola exists abundantly in the tropics and other regions, it may be quite difficult to obtain based on your location.

Below are a few products which can be ordered securely for use when the actual fruit and/or leaves can not be hand picked or are unavailable at your local farmer's market.

Not only is graviola (sour sop) juice delicious, but it provides the same cancer fighting capabilities as consuming tea from the leaves.

As long as you have a ripe graviola fruit (usually soft when ripe), a blender, and a sifter, then it is possible to make graviola juice

How to make graviola juice from the fruit

  • Cut the graviola in half and remove the skin so that only the pulp with seeds is left.

  • Place the pulp in your blender with an equal amount of water and blend until pureed and smooth.

  • Using your sifter/strainer, strain the mixture to remove any unwanted remainers

  • Sweeten with honey or other sweeteners; we never recommend sugar
