    CNN needs to make it clear that iodine pills will not protect the body from radiation poisoning, it only protects the Thyroid. Bone marrow, intestinal cells and all other body parts will still be destroyed...

    It would be best to suggest the foods that help prevent the overall poisoning, such as Kelp, other seaweeds, soy and barely soups, sea salt and pectin’s etc.

    In the problem with radiation, isnt Japan the leaders in robotics? When dumping water onto the reactors, why not use concrete pumping trucks to pump water onto the hot rods. The towers between the reactors are free standing and could be used to support cables to hold up the concrete hoses that are directed onto the hot spots. It would be easier to have one person or robot to secure the hoses than to have helocopters and crews exposed to radiation with every trip of water. With concrete pumpers you can pump sand, water, lead,or whatever onto the hot rods.
