  Title A perspective on ionizing radiation exposure after the Japense [sic, Japanese] wake up call -- Protection from radioactivity -- Antioxidants [part VI]
Journal Nutr Perspect. 2015 Apr;38(2):25-30
Peer Review No
Publication Type Article

In the last installment of this series I began a discussion on the use of supplemental antioxidants as protective agents against the damaging effects of ionizing radiation, focusing on melatonin. Given that we tend not to think of melatonin as an antioxidant that counteracts the effects of ionizing radiation, I hope you are like me in regarding this news as a pleasant departure from the usual gloom and doom reports we tend to see in the media when the issues of radiation exposure is considered. Even more fortunate, though, is the fact that, as you are about to see, melatonin is not the only radioprotective antioxidant that has been reported upon in the medical literature. In the review that follows, published papers have indeed pointed out several other antioxidants that appear to have radioactive properties.
