Chernobyl lessons for Japan

At the time of the Chernobyl accident to the environment was thrown about 450 different, mostly short-lived radionuclides. Most of them are in their physical and chemical nature are ions of heavy metals and very selectively adsorbed carbon enterosorbents.
In June and August 1986, such studies have been organized on the basis of the Kiev district military hospital. It was shown that regular prophylactic use of enterosorbents 4-8 times reduces the accumulation of radionuclides in the body. Supporters of depuration of radionuclides sorbents lost in the corporate struggle for money. In practice, used less effective methods Many health workers have made a career even when attempts to aid the injured people was unsuccessful. Despite the significant need, sorbents have not been applied widely after the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant and used only by the KGB to its employees. The newspaper «Зеркало недели» ( №16, ) has been reported that, despite the absence of official permission, the Hospital of the KGB in Kiev successfully applied chelators for radiation protection of its employees who worked in the Chernobyl zone.
Story about the opposition supporters of effective treatments and corporations during a humanitarian catastrophe has been used in the anime Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex ( in the anime "good guys" won, the reality was the opposite)
Clinoptilolite-zeolite showed high efficiency of treatment of victims of radiation injury of people. 
Montmorillonite was used in practice for the improvement of domestic animals kept on the ground contaminated with radionuclide cesium-137.
Ferric hexacyanoferrate (Fe4III[FeII(CN)6]3), also known as insoluble Prussian blue (PB) is the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) of the drug product, Radiogardase®. Radiogardase® is  approved medical countermeasure for the treatment of internal contamination with radioactive cesium (Cs) or thallium in the event of a major radiological incident such as a “dirty bomb”.

When looking for Zeolite it's VERY IMPORTANT to purchase only high quality micronized Zeolite that has been properly cleaned and is 100% pure and safe to use.DO NOT Be Fooled by low quality zeolite products that are over priced especially liquid products containing extremely small amounts of zeolite ! 
Sorbents help remove radionuclides but does not protect from direct irradiation.
After ingestion of radionuclides, sorbents only help the first couple of weeks.
When radionuclides produced ionizing effect on the body help of sorbents has little effect.

Evidence of the effectiveness of carbon sorbents in the treatment of radiation syndrome obtained in the experiment, the intensive development  of sorption detoxification, as well as extensive experience in their clinical application in patients with severe somatic pathology will allow specialists of the Military Medical Department of the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) in full volume of use of the sorption methods for the treatment of the liquidators of the Chernobyl accident.
