Hello, i’m ziad kazzi. I’m a medical toxicologist working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. During a radiation emergency, people may be exposed to large amounts of high energy radiationmuch more than we get from everyday exposures like xrays.
Exposure to large amounts of high energy radiation, or ionizing radiation, can cause harmful health effects in people. A developing fetus is especially sensitive to radiation exposure, particularly in the early stages of pregnancy. In the rare event of a radiation emergency, pregnant women.
And their healthcare providers should work with radiation experts to address any health concerns about radiation exposure during pregnancy. Let’s take a closer look at the possible health effects radiation exposure can have on a developing fetus.
It is especially important that pregnant women follow instructions from emergency officials and seek medical attention as soon as emergency officials say it is safe to do so after a radiation emergency. A developing fetus is highly susceptible to health effects.
From radiation exposure because of the rapid rate of cell division. Prenatal radiation exposure occurs when the mother’s abdomen is exposed to radiation from outside her body. A pregnant woman who accidentally swallows.
Or breathes in radioactive materials may absorb them into her bloodstream. From the mother’s blood, radioactive materials may pass through the umbilical cord to the fetus or concentrate in areas of the mother’s body near the womb such as the urinary bladder and expose the fetus to radiation.
The possibility of severe health effects depends on the gestational age of the fetus at the time of exposure and the amount of radiation it is exposed to. Fetuses are particularly sensitive to radiation during their early development, between weeks 2 and 18 of pregnancy.
The health effects to the fetus can be severe, even at radiation doses too low to make the mother sick. These can include stunted growth, deformities, abnormal brain function, or cancer that may develop sometime later in life. Women have an increased risk of fetal miscarriage.
Vitamin B Complex
Hey guys, josh axe here. i am so excited to share with you my new formula for vitamin B adrenal complex. And this is a cutting edge new formula that I know is going to help you reach your highest level of health and B vitamins are crucial for you feeling great, having high energy levels, and reaching your optimal health potential. They’re also crucial for balancing hormones and I created this formula specifically to also support healthy hormones, including your adrenal glands and supporting healthy thyroid function, so you’re going.
To see some key ingredients in this formula, like vitamin b12, selenium, and even some adaptogen herbs. I’ll share with you in just a minute. Before I get into that though, let me talk about why you need Bvitamins and who may actually need more of these vitamins. I really believe almost every adult today needs more vitamin B or different types of B vitamins. And the reason for that is high levels of carbohydrate consumption, less sleep, more stress. All of those things deplete your body.
Of crucial b vitamins. also malabsorption, if you have a digestive issue or you’re low on probiotics in your system, that will cause you to not be able to absorb B vitamins correctly, causing a deficiency. So again, biggest things that really wipe out our B vitamins, one is toxicity. So if you know that you’ve been exposed to any type of toxin over time, B vitamins support cellular function in some of your detoxification pathways, especially things like folate and vitamin.
B12. if you are emotionally stressed, vitamin b or b vitamins are crucial for your overall health. And so if you have a stressful job, stressful home life, or let’s say you’re just not getting enough sleep, any type of work, relation, or emotional stress can deplete B vitamins. Also the consumption of carbohydrates and alcohol deplete your body of B vitamins. So if you know you’ve consumed more grains over the years or in the past than you should,.
Or more sugar, or even struggle with, let’s say, sugar cravings, you’re probably deficient in B vitamins, like vitamin B3, B6, and B12. And last but not least, vitamin B, one of the other things that can really cause you to be depleted in this is actually overexercising. So if you’re doing a lot of exercise on a regular basis, you also want to make sure you’re getting plenty of these B vitamins. Now in a Bcomplex formula that I created, here are the most important B vitamins. You.
Want to be making sure you’re getting both in your diet and in supplement form. and the first one I think is crucial is vitamin B3 that’s also known as niacin. And niacin really supports circulation, so if you feel like your circulation isn’t as good as it should be. Vitamin B3 helps you overcome addictions. So if you’re addicted to smoking or sugar or certain things, vitamin B3 can help with that. It also really supports healthy heart function in your cardiovascular system, may even support athletic performance.
The next one is vitamin b6. now vitamin b6 is very important for mood. so if you struggle with anything like depression or anxiety, vitamin B6 is essential for supporting hormones, neurotransmitters, in your mood. The next one is vitamin B7, which is also known as biotin. And biotin actually helps strengthen your skin, your hair, and your nails. So if you notice your nails are thin or chip more than they should, if your hair isn’t as thick or it’s falling out or thinner.
Than it should be, those are all warning signs that you are biotin deficient. you need to get more biotin into your diet. This complex has a fantastic amount of biotin. Also vitamin B9, also known as folate, is critical for neurological development. It’s very important for pregnant and nursing mothers. Folate is also important for your detoxification pathways and something called methylation. And so very important for cellular function that you’re getting folate.
