What water filter protects from radioactive particles?
It's quite obvious this will have a lasting effect on our food and water. At least I can choose to buy food from south america. However it's hard to choose where your water comes from. Are there water filters that will get rid of this plutonium or anything else radioactive. Trolls go away.

Re: What water filter protects from radioactive particles?
My water filter claims this capability. Never thought I would need to use it for such. I bought it in mid 90's at REI and haven't had it out in a while, so I'll have to go dig it out to remember what kind it is. It uses a replaceable ceramic cartridge filter, and it screws directly on to a wide-mouth Nalgene bottle. I want to say MSA or something like that for the brand?

Berkey's filter out lots of things - not so sure about radioactive particles, though. I know they get rid of radon and a bunch of heavy metals, and even more heavy metals if you get the PF2 filter with them.

Re: What water filter protects from radioactive particles?
I am here so you can pass this on, if anyone will really read this. Keep in mind that the good ole USA has blown up more nukes in and around it for years, we are still here.
Think we should be used to it by now, how about going out and buying a pack of cigs-with acceptable radiation levels approved by our gov.


Try eating off of Fiesta Dinnerware.
The accompanying photo shows two pieces of Fiesta ware produced by the Homer Laughlin Company of West Virginia: a Fiesta red saucer and an ivory bowl. In each case, uranium was used to provide the color of the glaze. Although the radioactivity of both is easily detectable, that of the Fiesta red is head and shoulders above the ivory.

If you’ve been listening in on the debate over nuclear energy, by now you’ve heard the Sierra Club, FOE, or Greenpeace recite one of their favorite incorrect mantras: “There are no safe levels of radiation.” Simply put, they’re wrong. As a matter of fact, you’re surrounded by safe levels of radiation right now as you read this post.

The global average radiation dose a person receives is about 240 millirem from safe sources of radiation. So if there are no safe levels of radiation then why isn’t every human being on the planet dropping dead from radiation poisoning? To put that in perspective, in my first two years working in the nuclear power industry I received about 60 millirem, just a fraction of what anyone else receives from natural sources. The fact is there ARE safe levels of radiation. Here are a few examples of safe levels of radiation i.e. the kind that are all around you.

Granite
Granite naturally contains Uranium. The byproduct of the slow decay of Uranium is Radon gas. That means that your shiny new counter top and tile floor are both natural sources of radiation. While Radon is the largest contributor to your annual dose, Granite is only 10-20 parts per million Uranium meaning your dose from that counter top and floor will be very low.

Another very expensive and decorative stone, Marble gives off the same radioactive gasses as Granite. An interesting fact is that radiation levels in parts of the US Capitol building, built almost entirely of Marble and Granite, are about 55 times higher than levels standing at the fence line of a US nuclear plant. So the next time Ed Markey tells you the radiation from nuclear plants is dangerous, remember that he sits inside a giant radioactive dome for a living. Of course despite what he’ll tell you, these levels are entirely safe.

Sleeping Next to Your Husband or Wife
Your significant other is full of small amounts of radioactive Potassium 40, a beta radiation emitter. Sleeping next to this person annually will expose you to a mere 2 millirem of radiation, about twice the amount of radiation people living within a few miles of the Three Mile Island plant received when Unit 2 experienced a partial meltdown in 1979. Isn’t it amazing that according to Greenpeace, a “radiological catastrophe” happens in your bed twice every year?

Flying
The friendly skies are just full of Cosmic Radiation. When you’re in the air, you have less atmospheric shield protecting you from the radiation of the sun and other stars. In fact, the average airline pilot receives 250 millirem of radiation annually, almost twice that of the average worker at a nuclear power plant!

Smoke Detectors
Every house has them and these little life savers are also giving off radiation. Smoke detectors contain Americium-241 which is a gamma and alpha radiation emitter. Don’t worry, those smoke detectors are only giving you about 0.01 millirem.

Exit Signs
Many exit signs are full of Tritium, a weak radioactive isotope of Hydrogen. When mixed with certain chemicals, tritium will light up so that an exit sign will illuminate in the event of a power failure. For some reason, the Sierra Club and The Union of Concerned Lawyers Scientists want you to think that we should shut down Vermont Yankee because of a tritium leak (that has been fixed). I guess these same groups will now lobby to shutdown every library, hospital, school, and museum that uses tritium in exit signs.

Salt Substitute
Trying to cut down on your sodium intake? Why not replace that sodium chloride table salt with mildly radioactive potassium chloride salt substitute. That psuedo-salt contains traces amounts of beta radiation emitting Potassium 40. Of course this won’t hurt you, but too much salt in your diet certainly will.

OP...I think this was a great question.thumbs


The best filter for this is a CARBON / SAND bucket setup.


Here's is another great way to filter water....

"In areas subject to fallout, about 99% of the radioactivity in water could be removed BY filtering the water through at least 8 inches of soil taken from 8 inches "Below" the surface. That soil has not been leached of the "clay" particles in the soil "needed to attract the radioactivity" in the water. SANDY soil will not work as a filter because it lacks the necessary soil "clay". Most homes and flowerbeds have enough clay in the soil to work as a filter. Kids play clay does NOT work at all. It has to be soil clay"

I do not think there is any such thing. How effective a filter is depends on the size of the particles. If it is radioactive dust sized particles, a filter will stop the dust. But radionucleotides can be as small as single atoms, and no filter will hold it.

Katadyn makes several water filters that remove radioactive particles. These filters are designed for use in outdoor activities and emergency situations. You can dip them directly into lakes, rivers, ponds, streams - virtually any freshwater source, and it will remove just about any contaminant that poses a threat to human health. Radioactivity is crucial right now since the Japan earthquake, but even if you don't live in areas that might be affected, these filters are good if you're a frequent traveler, camper or hiker. You can order Katadyn water filters online through Filters Fast [link to www.filtersfast.com] or you may be able to find them at a local outdoor/sports store.

Re: What water filter protects from radioactive particles?
I'll be using my reverse osmosis machine in Tokyo. It will not get rid of nucleotides (the actual atom). However, most radioactive iodide and cesium are attached to dust particles once leaving the plant. These can be filtered out to between 90% and 99% purity.

Not sure what the big worry is in the US. There is probably more radiation in your cat litter box. The mania in the US will sell a lot of news and survival gear, but there is probably something better to do with your time.

I live hidingaround 160 miles from the Daiichi nuclear plant and would need to drink maybe two gallon of water each day for three months straight before I get to the level of some risk to health given the recent iodide readings of 210 bq. I would die of water poisoning before I had any radiation effects. The RO machine should allow me to drink water each day without concern for radiological effects.

Get a 5 gallon a bucket and put about a dozen nail holes in the bottom. Place a cloth at the bottom of the bucket. Fill it with about 12-18" of clay dirt. Run the water through that. (Google it if you want the details of why that would work.)

Then you'll need your Berkey or other purifier to make the brown water tasty.

None. However, distillers will work. Downside - they're slow and the residue the leave behind on the other end is radioactive.
