Fallout From China

"Yellow dust blowing over Korea from China every year is believed to contain radioactive material presumed to have been leaked from nuclear power plants in the neighboring country" — Yellow dust from China found to be radioactive.

This recent article from Donald W. Miller, Jr., MD, may then be helpful — Iodine for Radioactive Fallout. Fortunately, Koreans "eat a lot of seaweed, which protects them against the deleterious effects of I-131 in radioactive fallout," including "brown algai (kelp), red algae (nori sheets, with sushi), and green algae (chlorella)."

UPDATE: Richard Alleyne has some good advice, too — Red Wine 'Can Protect Against Radiation'.
