The video above shows the radioactive gases and ‘hot’ particles from Fukushima spreading across the whole globe. Odds are that you did not see this video, and it will never be shown on mass media for very specific reasons.
In the video below, Dr. Helen Caldicott MD explains in an overview, what happened with Fukushima. She mentions just a few of the effects on health of a wide variety of radioactive materials released, which includes the radioactive gas Xenon.
According to Wikipedia; “there are over 40 unstable (meaning toxic and radioactive) Xenon (Xe) isotopes that have been studied. The longest lived these isotopes is 136Xe, which has been observed to undergo double beta decay with a half-life of 2.11 x 1021yr.

129Xe is produced by beta decay of 129I, which has a half-lifeof 16 million years, while 131mXe, 133Xe, 133mXe, and 135Xe are some of the fission products of both 235Uand 239Pu, and therefore used as indicators of nuclear explosions…
A by-product of nuclear weapon testing is the release of radioactive Xenon-133 and Xenon-135 gas. The detection of these radioactive isotopes is used to monitor compliance with nuclear test ban treaties, as well as to confirm nuclear test explosions by states such as North Korea.
This was discovered in the earliest nuclear reactors built by the American Manhattan Project for plutonium production. Fortunately the designers had made provisions in the design to increase the reactor’s reactivity (the number of neutrons per fission that go on to fission other atoms of nuclear fuel).
135Xe reactor poisoning played a major role in the Chernobyl disaster. A shutdown or decrease of power of a reactor can result in buildup of 135Xe and getting the reactor into the iodine pit.
Under adverse conditions, relatively high concentrations of radioactive xenon isotopes may be found emanating from nuclear reactors due to the release of fission products from cracked fuel rods, or fissioning of uranium in cooling water.“
Radioactive Xenon gas is known to cause a dramatic increase in lung cancer after exposure, yet the medical industry still uses it as an anesthetic and for ‘diagnostic’ purposes. Xenon gas bombards humans with very powerful x-rays, which cause cancer. Xenon gas decays or turns into solid radioactive Cesium, which also causes cancer.
There was a dramatic, measurable and statistically meaningful increase in lung cancer in people that were in that radioactive cloud that came out of Three Mile Island. The cancers show up about 3-5 years after any nuclear accident where invisible but deadly radioactive Xenon gas is released. Because radioactive Xenon gas is invisible and no one can see it, hear it, taste it, or smell it, that is why almost no one knows about this danger, even if they breathed it in, in amounts sufficient to cause whatever cancer it caused.
A little coverage was given to Xenon gas on NHK news video below, but this news reporter only talked about Xenon as if it were a harmless substance, lasting only ‘six’ days and then disappearing into nothingness. No one said Xenon gas is dangerous. No mention of Xenon turning into other toxic, solid and radioactive substances such as Cesium was made. There are even YouTube videos of people breathing in Xenon gas ‘just for fun’, much like people used to play with liquid mercury metal, a dangerously toxic heavy metal.
Xenon gas coming out of nuclear reactors does not just disappear. It just ‘decays’ into solid radioactive materials, which in turn last either hundreds, thousands, or tens of thousands of years.
Xenon 133 was measured at 40,000 times normal levels over the US on March 16th, 2011, but again, this will not be reported on mass media news, especially those owned by GE, which manufactures nuclear reactors and medical devices.
Abstract “First detections of (133)Xe were made starting early March 16, 2011, only four days following the earthquake (at Fukushima). Maximum concentrations of (133)Xe (radioactive Xenon gas) were in excess of 40 Bq/m(3), (cubic meter of air) which is more than ×40,000 the average concentration of this isotope is this part of the United States.
Almost all government agencies (except the one above) who are supposed to protect communities from radiation and monitor dangerous levels of it, report that ‘nothing happened’ around Fukushima. Below is one example of this covering up, denial, spin, non protection, non reporting and kowtowing to the nuclear industry.
“By comparison, the levels detected at stations outside Japan up until April 13 have been far below levels that could cause harm to humans and the environment. The levels are comparable to natural background radiation such as cosmic radiation and radiation from the environment on Earth and lower than from man made sources such as medical applications or nuclear power plants (under normal operations) or isotope production facilities. This demonstrates how extremely sensitive the CTBTO’s monitoring stations are.”
The CTBTO said that radioactive Xenon gas measured on their equipment after Fukushima was only equal to “natural background” radiation! How does 40,000 times normal equal the same as ‘normal’? At the same time, the CTBTO turned off most or all of their monitoring equipment. They this agency refused to give scientists any data, which they actually did collect up to that point.
This example of how a cover up happens, points to the revolving door between the nuclear industry and the nuclear industry as well as the military industrial complex.
Radioactive xenon-135 is produced from iodine-135 as a result of nuclear fission. Radioactive xenon known as 129Xe is produced by beta decay of Radioactive Iodine, known as I29I, which has a half-life of 16 million years, while 131mXe, 133Xe, 133mXe, and 135Xe are some of the fission products of both 235U and 239Pu, and therefore used as indicators of nuclear explosions.”
So let summarize the above, shall we? Radioactive Iodine 129 lasts for 16 million years and it comes out of nuclear accidents and nuclear installations such as reprocessing, refining and recycling facitilities. Iodine 129 ‘decays’ into radioactive Xenon 129 during these 16 million years, while causing thyroid cancer along the way. We already know that Xenon 129 gas causes lung cancer. This Xenon 129 then decays into radioactive Cesium, which also causes different kinds of cancers and heart problems, while destroying the immune system, among other things.
Uranium and plutonium are also released by nuclear accidents as well as recycling, reprocessing and refining plants. Uranium 235 and Plutonium 239 both ‘decay’ or fission into radioactive Xenon 131, 133, and 135 gases. These gases travel around the world, as shown by the above video.
These gases then ‘decay’ into solid radioactive substances such as cesium and other nasties, all of which cause cancer. Is it any wonder that the nuclear industry does not want to talk about all of this?
Wikipedia reports that “some radioactive isotopes of xenon, for example, 133Xe and 135Xe, are produced by neutron irradiation of fissionable material within nuclear reactors. 135Xe is of considerable significance in the operation of nuclear fission reactors. 135Xe has a huge cross section for thermal neutrons, 2.6×106 barns, so it acts as a neutron absorber or “poison” that can slow or stop the chain reaction after a period of operation.
This was discovered in the earliest nuclear reactors built by the American Manhattan Project for plutonium production. Fortunately the designers had made provisions in the design to increase the reactor’s reactivity (the number of neutrons per fission that go on to fission other atoms of nuclear fuel). 135Xe reactor poisoning played a major role in the Chernobyl disaster.
A shutdown or decrease of power of a reactor can result in buildup of 135Xe and getting the reactor into the iodine pit. Under adverse conditions, relatively high concentrations of radioactive xenon isotopes may be found emanating from nuclear reactors due to the release of fission products from cracked fuel rods, or fissioning of uranium in cooling water. (This is what happened at Chernobyl and Fukushima for example.)
A by-product of nuclear weapon testing is the release of radioactive xenon-133 and xenon-135. The detection of these isotopes is used to monitor compliance with nuclear test ban treaties, as well as to confirm nuclear test explosions by states such as North Korea. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xenon
One of the common fission products is tellurium-135, which undergoes beta decay with half-life of 19 seconds to iodine-135. Iodine-135 itself is a weak neutron absorber. It builds up in the reactor in the rate proportional to the rate of fission, which is proportional to the reactor thermal power. Iodine-135 undergoes beta decay with half-life of 6.57 hours to xenon-135. The yield of 135Xe for uranium fission is 6.3%; about 95% of xenon-135 originates from decay of iodine-135.
The artificial isotope Xenon 135 is of considerable significance in the operation of nuclear fission reactors. 135Xe has a huge cross section for thermal neutrons, 2.65×106 barns, so it acts as a neutron absorber or “poison” that can slow or stop the chain reaction after a period of operation.
This was discovered in the earliest nuclear reactors built by the American Manhattan Project for plutonium production. Fortunately the designers had made provisions in the design to increase the reactor’s reactivity (the number of neutrons per fission that go on to fission other atoms of nuclear fuel). Relatively high concentrations of radioactive xenon isotopes are also found emanating from nuclear reactors due to the release of this fission gas from cracked fuel rods or fissioning of uranium in cooling water.
133Xe, 137Xe, and 135Xe that has not captured a neutron all beta decay to isotopes of Cesium. Fission produces 133Xe, 137Xe, and 135Xe in roughly equal amounts, but after neutron capture, fission caesium will contain more stable 133Cs (which however can become 134Cs on further neutron activation) and highly radioactive137Cs than 135Cs.
135Xe that does not capture a neutron decays to Cs-135, one of the 7 long-lived fission products,(SEE BELOW) while 135Xe that does capture a neutron becomes stable 136Xe. Estimates of the proportion of 135Xe during steady-state reactor operation that captures a neutron include 90%, 39%–91% and “essentially all”.
In the following scientific abstract, an estimate is made around total Xenon-133 and caesium-137 releases into the atmosphere from the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant.
Abstract. ….. “Regarding 133Xe, we find a total release of 16.7 (uncertainty range 13.4–20.0) EBq, which is the largest radioactive noble gas release in history not associated with nuclear bomb testing. There is strong evidence that the first strong 133Xe release started very early, possibly immediately after the earthquake and the emergency shutdown on 11 March at 06:00 UTC. The entire noble gas inventory of reactor units 1–3 was set free into the atmosphere between 11 and 15 March 2011….. Emissions were not only coming from the damaged reactor cores, but also from the spent-fuel pool of unit 4…..the radioactive plume was advected over Eastern Honshu Island, where precipitation deposited a large fraction of 137Cs on land surfaces. The plume was also dispersed quickly over the entire Northern Hemisphere, first reaching North America on 15 March and Europe on 22 March. Altogether, we estimate that 6.4 TBq of 137Cs, or 19% of the total fallout until 20 April, were deposited over Japanese land areas, while most of the rest fell over the North Pacific Ocean. Only 0.7 TBq, or 2% of the total fallout were deposited on land areas other than Japan.”
Strangely, the above ‘estimates’ do not include any Xenon released from fires due to water drying out in the spent fuel pools associated with reactors 1-5 at Fukushima Daichi, other than #4, despite a number of them blowing up or being on fire at various times. These spent fuel pools had HUGE quantities of highly radioactive rods in them, much more than in the reactors all combined. #3 had a nuclear explosion from either the spent fuel pool and/or the reactor, which releases even more radioactive substances, but this is not even mentioned in this supposedly ‘scientific’ and impartial analysis. According to one nuclear expert, Fukushima contained 85 times as much Cesium as Chernobyl, between the spent fuel pools and various reactors. This means that there also should be 85 times as much Xenon gas as well, right? Where did all of that Radioactive Cesium and Xenon gas go, if all of these ‘noble’ gases are the FIRST to be released 100%, in case of a nuclear accident or damage to spent fuel rods? Why are the nuclear industry ‘experts’ all claiming that Fukushima is only 10-20% of Chernobyl in severity? Is there any study that may confirm a radioactive release 80 times greater than Chernobyl? Nuclear Expert: Fukushima spent fuel has 85 times more cesium than released at Chernobyl — “It would destroy the world environment and our civilization… an issue of human survival” -Former UN adviser April 6, 2012
Here is one potential study that may show what REALLY happened at Fukushima;
Xenon-133 measurements were x450,000 our detection levels using a SAUNA-II xenon measurement system…. Noble gas does not “washout,” and is the first emitted from any possible fuel damage. The high levels of radioactive gas persisted for weeks.”
Arnie Gunderson and Dr. Helen Caldicott MD discuss radioactive Xenon releases from Fukushima. In their transcript of their discussion at 23:55 in;
Gundersen: “We just got information that during the first week, people in Fukushima…were exposed to 1,300 Bq/m³ of (radioactive Xenon gas) Xe-133… that’s medical levels…obviously they should have evacuated much further, must faster… but there is an exposure that has been under estimated…
As you discussed, it’s fat soluble and gets in your lungs, tissue, hangs around for quite a while
Caldicott: If you’re immersed in a cloud of Xe-133, your receiving high-level gamma radiation, like high-level x-rays. As well as inhaling Xe-133; exposing gonads, testicles, ovaries and other organs to high-level gamma radiation.
It’s not just Xe-133, there’s argon and krypton as well.” For more details on this and to listen to the whole transcript, go to;
In another report, the government actually reported that radioactive Xenon was measured at 400,000 times normal background levels.. Knowing how much governments like to tell the truth about this, the actual levels were probably much higher.
In another report issued on Nov. 14th, 2011, with a title of ‘Xenon Gas and Lethal Doses by Inhalation’ via http://www.aipri.blogspot.com/ it is translated from French as saying;
“Fukushima released 1.67 E19 Bq of 133 Xe (Xenon) gas have meant the spread of 2.411 kg. This emission is equivalent in terms of internal radiation lung 400.8 million in potentially lethal doses by inhalation. As shown, 2.4 kg of material having the power to kill only transient 400 million people. “Xe 133 has a half-life of 5.244 days. The inhalation dose factor is of 1.20 E-10 Sv / Bq….A lethal dose by inhalation of 5 Sievert E-06 weighs 6.02 gr. (6, o2 micrograms), E10 is 4.17 Bq. One gram of 133 Xe provides 166,249 potentially lethal doses. Fukushima released about 2411 grams of the radioactive element has so far scattered the equivalent of 400.8 million lethal doses.” Anyone who thinks Xenon gas can be inhaled without harm after all of the above evidence, should look at the following Xenon Material Data Safety Sheet, which the industry itself puts out in order to protect it’s own workers; http://www.radiopharm.com/PDF/msds/XenonLantheusComplete.PDF Coverups and minimizations of nuclear emissions and disasters are the norm, not the exception. The above ‘analysis’ indicates that another coverup is happening, much like the ones below.

Could Fukushima Daichi be just another crisis that got covered up, like all of the ones above, only 85 TIMES LARGER? What would happen to the nuclear industry if the truth were told? Is there more evidence from the ‘insiders’ that a coverup is happening, besides what we have explored already? Japanese Magazine: Tepco workers ordered to make Fukushima look less severe than Chernobyl June 3, 2012 So what happens if a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it? What happens if there is a potentially global life extinction nuclear accident, and no one is told about it? Could they get away with it? The answer is being delivered by radioactive Xenon, blowing in the wind, all around the world. Share this article by copying and pasting the following link and title…
