Dr. David Brownstein, one of the foremost practitioners of holistic medicine, agrees that Japanese workers who are fighting to head off a nuclear disaster at the stricken Fukushima reactors are heroes on a “suicide mission.”
On Wednesday, 180 workers headed into the power plant to pump water onto the over-heating reactors, working in shifts of 50 men. Their full-body jumpsuits reportedly provide scant protection from the invisible radiation.
Dr. Brownstein is the author of the Newsmax newsletter “Dr. David Brownstein's Natural Way to Health.” His books include “Iodine: Why You Need It, Why You Can’t Live Without It,” which explains how iodine can help protect the body from the harmful effects of radiation.
Asked about the dangers faced by the Japanese workers, Dr. Brownstein tells Newsmax.TV: “They are putting themselves at deadly risk and it truly is a suicide mission."

“My heart goes out to those people. They’re true heroes to be working in these conditions. But I do not think they will survive the situation they are in.”
Discussing the likely effects of the radiation, he says: “If the radiation exposure is extremely high, which I believe it probably will be, I think they will get sick very quickly and most of them will succumb to radiation poisoning.”
