Plant based foods provide protection against free radical damage and they can reduce the absorption of radioactive substances.
A study published in Russia reviewed the protective nature of dietary fiber against radiation. Researchers used concentrates of dietary fiber from lemon peel and beet root among other plants and found that the fiber did have radio-protective properties.
