Survive a Nuclear Holocaust

How To Survive A Nuclear Holocaust

Last year, nuclear meltdowns and multiple explosions at the Fukushima Daiichi reactor complex sent plumes of radioactive contaminants across the northern Japanese countryside. These contaminants were projected in the atmosphere putting the northern hemisphere in danger of hazardous isotopes.

The events at Fukushima brought into focus the very real danger of a nuclear holocaust. At Best Health Degrees we decided to put together this infographic detailing some practical steps you can take to survive the danger posed by harmful nuclear radiation.

The Key: to surviving a nuclear holocaust is minimizing exposure to internal and external radiation. You will need some “weapons” to help in this effort.

The Weapons

  • Duct Tape
  • Mop
  • Water filtered vacuum
  • Sponge
  • Paper towels
  • Plastic bags
  • Sutrdy trash container
  • Hand-held radiation detector

Survival Checklist

  • Think of nuclear radiation as an invisible layer of dust on all surfaces that needs to be carefully cleaned away and managed
  • Create an air tight seal in your home (duct tape comes in handy)
  • Aggressively clean off surfaces in your home without creating dust (wet wipes and water filtered vacuums)
  • Keep food in clean, sealed containers
  • Clean floor and furniture with water filtered vacuum
  • When you go outside, wear a set of coveralls or a duster over your clothes.
  • Shower every time you come indoors from having spent more than a few minutes outdoors.
  • Use good quality dust masks to cover your mouth and nose, especially when going outdoors
  • Launder sheets, handkerchief masks, outdoor clothing, at least once a day
  • Keep all windows closed even if it’s nice outside) and sealed with duct tape
  • Seal all doors that open to the outside with duct tape.
  • Carry young children while outdoors or going to and from a vehicle.
  • Keep pets indoors as much as possible for the duration.
  • Sleep at least two feet above the floor
  • Keep pots, pans, plates, silverware and utensils in clean cabinets
  • Rinse your cooking utensils, plates, silverware, glassware
  • Rinse the outside of all food cans before opening
  • Do not do anything that can stir up dust (don’t use duster or a normal vacuum)
