I don't think its fair to say anyone has ignored all the protections and natural substances that nature offers in this situation. It seems like most mamas here are using many different healing and protective regimens that resonate with each of us, after researching and listening and seeking and questioning. If I choose to use iodine supplementally or to have it on hand does not mean that I eschew all the wondrous substances on your list or from all the other resources I've found.
If fears are inflamed, I don't thing it should be blamed on the people who are bystanders in this. The entire nuclear world was grown in secrecy and war and has an ugly, eerie and sinister history. It is also a hard science for lay people to understand, and I think its normal and healthy to be skeptical and suspicious of it. It is a technology that doesn't belong on this planet and I wish the distrust was higher, personally. Maybe then we wouldn't take so many deadly risks with it.
It is human nature in times of a disaster to try and determine how it might affect ourselves and our families. I think a lot of us mamas here are people who question what we are told, especially if we suspect that there may be ulterior motives involved, which there usually are. Fear-mongering is a powerful tool that is used for the purpose of personal gain, and I don't think that's what's going on here. It's my job to look at the potentials and what-ifs of life.
Its fair enough if you think that anyone with fears about this is loopy, but fear doesn't equal fear-mongering. And...I don't know about anyone else but I never ignore your posts...about anything.
