Cain, Abel And Zimmerman Teach Us How To Use The Stand Your Ground Law To Take Out Anyone You Don’t Like

There are now 21 states with a ‘Stand Your Ground’ type of law. What would have happened if this law were in effect back in the days of Cain and Able? The video above provides a scenario of what might have happened. Bottom line, he was not guilty of murder, or even trespassing. He was free to walk away and enjoy his life. 
The Stand Your Ground law now seems to be making it legal to shoot anyone who you feel threatens you in any way, even if they have no weapon on them. If you have a gun, a rock or even a metal bat, it seems to be the case that you can now murder someone legally, and the police cannot even take you in for questioning. Don’t believe it?
Here is an actual case…..  a mentally disabled person was killed by a guy with a gun who was sitting in a car at a fast food outlet with his wife next to him. The mentally disabled person had no weapon, no stick, no knife, no nothing. There was no mark on the guy with a gun, and no damage to his car. He could have rolled up his window or driven away, if he really felt that this mental ill guy was a nuisance. Instead, he pulled out his gun and killed him.
The NRA loves this law. They are pushing for passage of this law in all US states. They love people living in fear and owning a gun. This law makes it ok to have itchy trigger fingers and own lots of guns, and then be potentially even be ‘allowed to’ use those guns on people you disagree with. Even if you are a sociopath, mentally ill or a psychopath, you can now go out and take care of business, based on the above case. Hunting humans is now legal. It is open season on anyone you don’t like or agree with, thanks to the NRA. This is better than the Wild West days, where two people drew guns on each other. Now they other guy doesn’t even need a gun, a knife or a bat.

Suspected Terrorists on FBI’s No-Fly List Can Still Legally Purchase AK-47’s and Explosives In USA; via @AGreenRoad
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2013/05/suspected-terrorists-on-fbis-no-fly.html

It is easy to buy a gun in the US, easier than any other civilized country. Gun owners (even crazy ones, or terrorists) are allowed to buy guns. Even bat crazy loons are now ready and legally able to kill anyone who even looks at them cross eyed, and be totally justified in killing them for doing little or nothing. The police cannot take anyone in for questioning if the person who had the gun and killed someone say; “I felt threatened”. Basically, this law is permission to kill anyone, anywhere, anytime, for no reason at all, even if the other person has no gun or weapon at all.
After all, the only person who can say what happened is the guy with the gun. Witness accounts don’t matter, because it is only about what is in the head of the person with the gun that matters, according to this law. If the gun owners head says; “this person looks threatening, or looks like they are going to hit me, get out the gun and shoot them.”
No one can accuse the gun owner of murder, because the gun owner is the only person with a gun, and he or she felt threatened. It no longer matters that the other person had no gun, no weapon of any kind, all that matters is that a person with a gun felt fear, so that is justification in using the gun to commit legalized murder. What if someone does that around the President, or Senators, or CEO’s of corporations.. Many people feel very passionately that their life is being threatened by these people (even if that is not the case), and this law now seems to make it legal to go shoot them. 
This is worse than the Wild West Days, when anyone could shoot anyone else. Back then, as long as you both had guns and drew them, it was all legal. But even back then, the criteria was that BOTH people had to have guns. Now, the NRA has gotten rid of even this Wild West definition of a ‘fair fight’. Now a fair fight consists of a person with a gun, and anyone else, who that gun owner has a beef with.
If you don’t like someone because they are different in politics, religion, or color of skin, or the loud music they play, or for any other reason, that is enough reason now to kill them, as long as you own a gun and are willing to use the ‘Stand Your Ground’ law. Here is another case of ‘justified self defense’ shooting, despite the unarmed victim running away from the guy with the gun, and the police telling the guy with the gun to NOT follow the teen.

Despite the teen being unarmed, and running away from Zimmerman, and despite Zimmerman chasing him down and shooting him, Zimmerman was innocent of any crime, due to the ‘Stand Your Ground’ law.

The message seems to be, just say; “I felt threatened”, and that is enough. As a gun owner it is now open season on human beings. The ‘law’ now gives gun owners permission to go out and shoot everyone they don’t like and whoever they have an argument with. If they won’t argue with you as a gun owner, maybe just pick a fight with them, and then when you feel threatened, shoot them, like Zimmerman did above. It is all ok now, all legal and stuff… The NRA knows that 30,000 people a year murdered each year from guns in the US is not enough. By comparison, Japan has 10 or less people die due to guns each year. The Stand Your Ground law will likely INCREASE this 30,000 per year death toll, wouldn’t you agree?

The NRA may be saying; we need a higher body count, to prove that this law ‘works’ and that gun owners really are not fooling around with all of those unarmed terrorists, criminals and threatening characters standing around neighborhoods, and fast food joints. So how many bodies will be ok? 50,000 a year? 100,000 a year? 250,000 a year?

Browns Gas As A Potential Solution To Decontaminate And Inactivate Nuclear Man Made Radioactive Waste Products


Introduction to Brown’s Gas; What can it do? How is it made? 

Part I


Part II


Part III
Part IV
Part V
Part VII  (26 minutes in)
Is it possible to transmute elements through a process of alchemy? People have been in pursuit of this goal since the Middle Ages or even before that. 
The atomic age is in a sense proof that transmutation is possible and provable. After all, he nuclear industry is performing alchemy and transmuting elements, it is just that they are doing it in a negative, life destroying manner. 
If someone had tried to propose this negative transmutation was possible back in the Middle Ages, people would have laughed that person out of town, or possibly even burned them at the stake for being a warlock or witch. 
After all, the scientists and religous scholars of that time were very sure that the Earth was only 2,000 years old, the sun revolved around a stationary Earth, and that the Earth was flat. Of course, you would fall off the edge if you sailed out in the ocean far enough. 
Wouldn’t you agree that Earth is the domain of opposites, such as cold/heat, light/dark, up/down, gravity/antigravity, protons/antiprotons/ etc? There is no end to the opposites present in this mysterious dimension we are all living in. Is there any exception to this rule of everything having an opposite? 
What if there are NO exceptions to this rule of opposites existing? If negative transmutation is possible and now proven, why can’t positive transmutation or alchemy also be possible, especially when it comes to deactivating the deadly, radioactive manmade elements such as tritium, cesium, plutonium, etc? 
Open minded scientists and citizens will at least be open to the possibility, even if it seems very far fetched and ‘impossible’ when using present day knowledge.  Keeping an open mind is what TRUE science is all about, wouldn’t you agree? 

As it turns out, there may be a potential discovery that is in the wings, called Brown’s Gas, which according to the researchers, offers promise of transmuting radioactive elements. The experts researching this think they have discovered that there is an opposite kind of fire; a feminine fire, as opposed to the masculine fire that everyone is used to. 
This feminine fire (Brown’s Gas) has unique properties; it acts as electrochemical plasma, with many very unique and yet undiscovered properties. Of course, all of these unique properties and uses, (including deconstructing radioactive elements) needs to be confirmed by scientists all around the world. 
Because researchers are dealing with dangerous radiation, transmuting elements in a positive way will need to be confirmed in the nuclear labs that are used to doing this work safely, but by all initial appearances, this discovery may hold great promise for ‘deactivating’ nuclear radiation in a rapid manner. 
Have any experiments been done that proves this transmutation is possible? 

via blessings2all; 1991, China’s Baotou Nuclear Institute released a Report #202, “The Results of Experiments to Dispose of Radiation Materials by Brown’s Gas”, which establishes that experimentation on Cobalt 60 radiation source decreased radiation by about 50% or half-life of radiation — but sometimes more radiation is decreased which needs investigation of possibilities for decreasing more of the radiation in single treatments of exposure to Brown’s Gas flame, lasting only a few minutes, in the samples as described in the table below.
First Experiment      Before Treatment         After Treatment                         
Radiation              580 millirads/hour     220 – 240 millirads/hour    

Second Experiment

Radiation             115 – 120 millirads/hour      42 millirads/hour

“In another test conducted by Yull Brown before a public audience including U.S. Congressman Hon. Berkeley Bedell with a committee responsible in this area of concern, the experiment ran as follows as reported by the press: “Using a slice of radioactive Americium … Brown melted it together on a brick with small chunks of steel and Aluminum … After a couple of minutes under the flame, the molten metals sent up an instant flash in what Brown says is the reaction that destroys the radioactivity. (Hopefully they did this experiment in a safe way, using negative pressure containers and air filters/scrubbers, or lots of people may have been exposed to radiation.)
Many methods have been developed to massively accelerate the conversion or transmutation of radioactive materials to more atomically stable elements. I read over the suggestions here and not one I have seen suggests the most obvious and only possible solution. It appears that real and fundamental permanent solutions have been deliberately suppressed. When they have been presented they are not only denied but in many cases violently denied. 
A big reason appears to be is that The Powers That Be in the whole field do not want their mega-billion $troth to end. The other is that it flies in the face of standard junk science thrown in the faces of the public. 
“Nuclear decay is only stochastic or probabilistic, never deterministic.” Different versions of conventional transmutation are known and discussed in the literature: by photons, by neutrons, by charged particles and by scalar fields. One potential solution, “Brown’s Gas” — may reduce nuclear radiation up to 96% within minutes. 
Planetary Association for Clean Energy 

“Brown’s Gas can efficiently neutralize radioactive waste though transmutation right at the reactor, thus removing the need for transportation or storage of nuclear waste. Such application can revolutionize the nuclear industry” http://peswiki.com/index.php/PowerPedia:Browns_gas


What is the take away? What if there are answers to all of human kinds problems? What is Brown’s Gas offers solutions to at least some of those problems? Isn’t it worth researching all of the possible uses and benefits of Brown’s Gas, including the transmutation of nuclear waste, especially since the one experiment done showed great promise in this direction?

Thousands Of Unwilling, Unknowing Human Radioactive Plutonium Experiments

In the video above, the reporter talks about a super secret study where 18 patients were injected with plutonium, but not told about it. 

In the video above, the author of a book about this subject discloses how many children were spoon fed plutonium in a secret experiment. 

Doctors and scientists have exposed thousands of unwilling and unknowing Americans to radioactive substances. These are not terrorists, but US medical doctors, working together with the nuclear industry ‘experts’. The Nazi death camp doctors could not have done better.. 
Wikipedia; “In 1945, as part of the Manhattan Project, three patients at Billings Hospital at the University of Chicago were injected with plutonium.[60]
In 1946, six employees of a Chicago metallurgical lab were given water that was contaminated with plutonium-239, so that researchers could study how plutonium is absorbed into the digestive tract.[57]
“Medtronics made about 250 plutonium-powered pacemakers, and about twnty-two were still stimulating human heart more than twenty-five years after they were manufactured, a feat that no battery-powered pacemaker could match. ” 
Why are these plutonium powered heart pulse generators not being mass produced? Certainly the medical and nuclear power industry was pushing this product quite hard. 
“The authors suggest that an isotopic pulse generator be considered for every patient with a life expectancy of 10 years or more in spite of the still existing restrictive and cumbersome protocols required for licensing by the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission.” pg. 1. 
“With respect to safety, follow-up, and retrieval of isotopic pulse generators, the record has been flawless. It is difficult to envision any potential risk to the general public. The greatest probable risk is that of burying a patient without removing the pulse generator-a trivial risk compared with those of the disposal of radioactive waste materials and the threat of nuclear arms.” pg. 3
“It is certainly possible to design a lithium pacemaker of acceptable dimensions and a potential life of 20 years. However, that is a far cry from the 77-year calculated life of the isotopic device (Coratomic 100). Furthermore, the decay of the radioactive fuel is accurately predictable; the future behavior of any chemical system is not.” pg. 4 Source; http://ats.ctsnetjournals.org/cgi/reprint/28/1/1.pdf
The medical industry seemed to have discovered some drawbacks to having people with a large amount of plutonium implanted in their chests. Was the change of heart due to actual experiences, or due to some other reasons? 
“However, while the potential benefits of a longer-lasting pacemaker and the alternative of using a battery-operated pacemaker are perhaps easily explained to patients, it can sometimes be difficult to get a handle on the specific risks involved. This is because in some cases there may be theoretical risks that may not be readily quantified, such as the risk of developing a malignancy or other serious complication such as radiation fibrosis while being exposed a source of radioactivity over a prolonged period.
Even more difficult would estimating social risks, such as the risk that a patient with a nuclear pacemaker might be kidnapped and murdered with a view to committing a terrorist act by extracting the plutonium fuel and introducing it into (say) the Pentagon’s air intake system. (Inhaled plutonium dust is very carcinogenic: a mere one ten-thousandth of a gram (0.1 milligram) ingested in this manner can cause cancer [13].” pg. 15
They do not mention other more real world possibilities, such a person being cremated with large amount of plutonium inside of them. The plutonium in the device could vaporize and be spread all over a large city. A very small amount of plutonium vaporized via cremation could kill millions of people. 
The nuclear industry is ‘experimenting’ with the lives of everyone on the planet, but with no notice, no permission and no warnings. The invisible, deadly radiation is being released from accidents, recycling plants, uranium mines, depleted uranium weapons use, and much more.. The following links are the tip of a huge iceberg of secrets that the nuclear industry does not want anyone to know about…

What is the take away? It is important to understand that these were not ‘isolated’ instances. The hospitals, clinics, nuclear regulators, government, medical doctors, universities, colleges, and military all worked together back then and they still work together today, in the same exact way.

The nuclear cabal consisting of universities, nuclear experts, scientists, medical doctors, nuclear regulators and government covered up, hid, lied, kept secrets back then, and they still do today. Nothing has changed. If you think it was bad back then, today it is much worse. The secrecy, lies and deceptions have only grown in both number and scale.

The power and profit motive underneath all of this keeps driving this sinister, dark and very deadly experimentation forward into the future. On the positive side, maybe we can learn something from the details of the suffering that these unwilling human lab rats went through, so we will know what Fukushima will do to at least a portion of the rest of humanity that was also exposed as unwilling plutonium, iodine, cesium, and xenon gas guinea pigs after 3/11.

MOX Plutonium Fuel Burning/Reprocessing Fantasies, Reality And Dangers

According to Greenpeace; “Nuclear reactors normally burn enriched uranium fuel. When MOX is used, around 30% of the enriched uranium is replaced by the MOX fuel.

The reason for the manufacture of MOX was a political one – the countries involved like Japan had to be seen to be doing something about their useless stockpiles of plutonium, produced by reprocessing spent nuclear fuel. 
To understand the history and rationale behind British Nuclear Fuel’s (BNFL) production of plutonium Mixed Oxide Fuel (MOX) is one of the best ways to understand an industry living in a nuclear fantasy world, out of control, and oblivious to the reality of the deadly business they are involved in. 
Fantasy: producing MOX fuel to burn in nuclear reactors will use up our growing stocks of plutonium. 
Reality: To eliminate the plutonium, MOX fuel must be reprocessed and re-used many times. This is expensive because each time the MOX is used and reprocessed, the quality of the plutonium is degraded, making it increasingly difficult to re-use. Also, the share of MOX in a reactor core is around 30%. The other 70% of the core contains enriched uranium fuel, in which new plutonium is formed. The result: a net increase of plutonium. 
Fantasy: recycling nuclear fuel is a good thing.

Reality: separating out plutonium at the Sellafield THORP plant creates 180 times the volume of waste that you start with. The highly radioactive by-products are held in inadequate storage facilities and discharges have made the Irish Sea the most radioactive in the world. 
Fantasy: producing MOX will save nuclear waste storage costs.

Reality: Spent MOX fuel is much more radioactive because it contains on average five times more plutonium than spent uranium oxide fuel. After 10 years, the heat generation from spent MOX fuel is twice as high as that of spent uranium fuel. After 100 years, it is three times higher. 
Given the very long half-life of Pu-242 (380,000 years), and Neptunium-237 (2.14 million years), it is much more complicated to store MOX than normal spent fuel. Instead of partially solving our high level waste problem, MOX creates even bigger waste problems: it needs more and longer cooling; it has to be stored much longer; it is more dangerous; and the costs are therefore higher. 
Fantasy: it will be cheaper to produce Mox fuel than enriched uranium suitable for nuclear reactors. 
Reality: recent studies in Germany show that MOX fuel is four to five times more expensive. And that’s before considering the reprocessing costs of separating the plutonium in the first place. 
Fantasy: no additional safety concerns over MOX fuel. 
Reality: MOX in a reactor is more unsafe because plutonium is more reactive and this hotter fuel can cause increased localized melting of fuel in the reactor. Nuclear reactors have to be adapted and re-licensed. About 30% of the uranium fuel is replaced with MOX. Wrong size pellets can also vibrate or expand, rupturing the fuel pins and causing a meltdown. 
Fantasy: the Sellafield MOX plant will be an economic benefit for the UK. 
Reality: The operation of the Sellafield MOX plant was forecast to make £200m profit. But the cost of building it was over £460m. 
Fantasy: plutonium MOX is no threat to non-proliferation because, even if it was reprocessed, it would not be weapons-grade material. 
Reality: In June 1994, U.S. Energy Secretary Hazel O’Leary declassified further details of a 1962 test of a nuclear device using reactor-grade plutonium, which successfully produced a nuclear yield. The British Government itself has recognised this test, as it used British reactor-grade plutonium from Sellafield.”

For an in depth analysis about MOX plutonium reprocessing facilities and the problems around them, listen to the above 1 hour program.


At Fukushima, building #3 suffered a  massive explosion, releasing huge quantities of MOX plutonium fuel in nano particle form into the upper atmosphere. That plutonium went all around the world.

How To Take Potassium Iodide As A Preventative Against Damage Or Cancer Caused by Radiation From Radioactive Iodine


Per Wikipedia; “A common treatment method for preventing iodine-131 exposure is by saturating the thyroid with regular, non-radioactive iodine-127, as an iodide oriodate salt. Free elemental iodine should not be used for saturating the thyroid because it is a corrosive oxidant and therefore is toxic to ingest in the necessary quantities. The thyroid will absorb very little of the radioactive iodine-131 after it is saturated with non-radioactive iodide, thereby avoiding the damage caused by radiation from radioiodine. 

The most common method of treatment is to give potassium iodide to those at risk. The dosage for adults is 130 mg potassium iodide per day, given in one dose, or divided into portions of 65 mg twice a day. 
This is equivalent to 100 mg of iodide, and is about 7000 times bigger than the nutritional dose of iodide, which is 0.015 mg per day (150 micrograms per day). Seepotassium iodide for more information on prevention of radioiodine absorption by the thyroid during nuclear accident, or for nuclear medical reasons. 
The FDA-approved dosing of potassium iodide for this purpose are as follows: infants less than 1 month old, 16 mg; children 1 month to 3 years, 32 mg; children 3 years to 18 years, 65 mg; adults 130 mg.[18] However, some sources recommend alternative dosing regimens.[19]

The World Health Organizations daily recommended Dosage for Radiological Emergencies involving radioactive iodine[20]
Age KI in mg KIO3 in mg
Over 12 years old 130 170
3 – 12 years old 65 85
1 – 36 months old 32 42
< 1 month old 16 21
The ingestion of prophylaxis iodide and/or iodate is not without its dangers, There is reason for caution about taking potassium iodide or iodine supplements, as their unnecessary use can cause conditions such as the Jod-Basedow phenomena, and the Wolff-Chaikoff effect, trigger and/or worsen hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism respectively, and ultimately cause temporary or even permanent thyroid conditions. 


Dr. Wartofsky warned that taking preventative iodine tablets or liquid without a doctors supervision could cause serious reactions. The drug can induce severe hypothyroidism, or even worse things…“’It is inappropriate, foolhardy and dangerous to be taking iodine supplements at this time,’ Wartofsky said. ‘It’s very important to hold off until it’s absolutely necessary.’…”

It can also cause sialadenitis (an inflammation of the salivary gland), gastrointestinal disturbances, allergic reactions and rashes. Potassium iodide is also not recommended for those who have had an allergic reaction to iodine, and people with dermatitis herpetiformis and hypocomplementemic vasculitis, conditions that are linked to a risk of iodine sensitivity.[21]


The use of a particular ‘Iodine tablet’ used in portable water purification has also been determined as somewhat effective at reducing radioiodine uptake. In a small study on human subjects, who for each of their 90 day trial, ingested four 20 milligram tetraglycine hydroperiodide(TGHP) water tablets, with each tablet releasing 8 milligrams (ppm) of free titratable iodine;[22] it was found that the biological uptake of radioactive iodine in these human subjects dropped to, and remained at, a value of less than 2% the radioiodine uptake rate of that observed in control subjects who went fully exposed to radioiodine without treatment.[23]

The administration of known goitrogen substances can also be used as a prophylaxis in reducing the bio-uptake of iodine, (whether it be the nutritional non-radioactive iodine-127 or radioactive iodine, radioiodine – most commonly iodine-131, as the body cannot discern between different iodine isotopes). 
Perchlorate ions, a common water contaminant in the USA due to the aerospace industry, has been shown to reduce iodine uptake and thus is classified as a goitrogen. Perchlorate ions are a competitive inhibitor of the process by which iodide, is actively deposited into thyroid follicular cells. 
Studies involving healthy adult volunteers determined that at levels above 0.007 milligrams per kilogram per day (mg/(kg·d)), perchlorate begins to temporarily inhibit the thyroid gland’s ability to absorb iodine from the bloodstream (“iodide uptake inhibition”, thus perchlorate is a known goitrogen).[24] 
The reduction of the iodide pool by perchlorate has dual effects—reduction of excess hormone synthesis and hyperthyroidism, on the one hand, and reduction of thyroid inhibitor synthesis and hypothyroidism on the other. Perchlorate remains very useful as a single dose application in tests measuring the discharge of radioiodide accumulated in the thyroid as a result of many different disruptions in the further metabolism of iodide in the thyroid gland.[25]
Treatment of thyrotoxicosis (including Graves’ disease) with 600-2,000 mg potassium perchlorate (430-1,400 mg perchlorate) daily for periods of several months or longer was once common practice, particularly in Europe,[24][26] and perchlorate use at lower doses to treat thryoid problems continues to this day.[27] Although 400 mg of potassium perchlorate divided into four or five daily doses was used initially and found effective, higher doses were introduced when 400 mg/day was discovered not to control thyrotoxicosis in all subjects.[24][25]
Prophylaxis with perchlorate containing water at concentrations of 17 ppm, which corresponds to 0.5 mg/kg-day personal intake, if one is 70 kg and consumes two litres of water per day, was found to reduce baseline radioiodine uptake by 67%[24] This is equivalent to ingesting a total of just 35 mg of perchlorate ions per day. In another related study were subjects drank just 1 litre of perchlorate containing water per day at a concentration of 10 ppm, i.e. daily 10 mg of perchlorate ions were ingested, an average 38% reduction in the uptake of iodine was observed.[29]
However when the average perchlorate absorption in perchlorate plant workers subjected to the highest exposure has been estimated as approximately 0.5 mg/kg-day, as in the above paragraph, a 67% reduction of iodine uptake would be expected. Studies of chronically exposed workers though have thus far failed to detect any abnormalities of thyroid function, including the uptake of iodine.[30] this may well be attributable to sufficient daily exposure or intake of healthy iodine-127 among the workers and the short 8 hr biological half life of perchlorate in the body.[24]
To completely block the uptake of iodine-131 by the purposeful addition of perchlorate ions to a populaces water supply, aiming at dosages of 0.5 mg/kg-day, or a water concentration of 17 ppm, would therefore be grossly inadequate at truly reducing radioiodine uptake. Perchlorate ion concentrations in a regions water supply, would therefore need to be much higher, with at least a total dosage of 7.15 mg/kg of body weight per day needing to be aimed for, with this being achievable for most adults by consuming 2 liters of water per day with a water concentration of 250 mg/kg of water or 250 ppm of perchlorate ions per liter, only at this level would perchlorate consumption offer adequate protection, and be truly beneficial to the population at preventing bioaccumulation when exposed to a radioiodine environment.[24][28] This being entirely independent of the availability of iodate or iodide drugs.
The continual addition of perchlorate to the water supply would need to continue for no less than 80–90 days, beginning immediately after the initial release of radioiodine was detected, after 80–90 days had passed released radioactive iodine-131 would have decayed to less than 0.1% of its initial quantity and thus the danger from biouptake of iodine-131 is essentially over.[31]
In the event of a radioiodine release the ingestion of prophylaxis potassium iodide or iodate, if available, would rightly take precedence over perchlorate administration and would be the first line of defense in protecting the population from a radioiodine release. However in the event of a radioiodine release too massive and widespread to be controlled by the limited stock of iodide & iodate prophylaxis drugs, then the addition of perchlorate ions to the water supply, or distribution of perchlorate tablets would serve as a cheap, efficacious, second line of defense against carcinogenic radioiodine bioaccumulation.
The ingestion of goitrogen drugs is, much like potassium iodide is also not without its dangers, such as hypothyroidism. In all these cases however, despite the risks, the prophylaxis benefits of intervention with iodide, iodate or perchlorate outweigh the serious cancer risk from radioiodine bioaccumulation in regions were radioiodine has sufficiently contaminatated the environment.”

What is the take away? If you plan to use preventative doses of iodide, see a doctor or other health professional first. Seek a doctor’s advice about how long to continue doing this, as well as the dosage for you specifically.

Highly Radioactive Fukushima‬ Tsunami Ocean Debris, One Sample Tested 2 Million Bq/kg


A huge tsunami debris field is coming to the US and Hawaii. The big elephant in the room question is; how dangerous is this debris? In this article, evidence is presented that at least a part of the floating debris may have absorbed radiation from being downwind of Fukushima. More testing of this debris is needed. 


via; D’un RenardThe Rainbow Warriors

(Now They Tell Us) Highly Radioactive Pieces Found in Naraha-Machi in June/July 2013 Came from Fukushima, TEPCO Now Says


Specifically, four small pieces of debris found at the river mouth in Naraha-machi 15 kilometers from the plant may have come from Reactor 3.


The first piece of debris were found in June 2013, but TEPCO didn’t mention the discovery until July after three more such high-radiation pieces were found. Even then, they published a half-baked result of the analysis, which was nothing more than the measurement of gamma radiation and beta radiation in microsieverts per hour. (See my post on July 2, 2013 for the first discovery.)
TEPCO disclosed the result of the analysis of the debris done by Japan Atomic Energy Agency (of Monju fame) during the regular February 12, 2014 press conference, and no major news outlet has reported the news so far. Only bloggers took note. (I suppose the mainstream media is busy educating themselves on the intricacies of the State Secrecy Protection Law, even though it hasn’t gone into effect yet.)


According to TEPCO, the pieces of (floating) debris were not only highly contaminated with radioactive materials released from Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant but they actually, most likely came from the plant. The degree of contamination from radioactive materials found on the small pieces of debris is similar to that on the debris found around the Reactor 3 building.
From TEPCO’s handout for the press, 2/12/2014 (in Japanese):
Very high contamination from cesium-134, cesium-137, and presence of cobalt-60/ Note the unit is Bq per sample, not kilogram. For example, Sample No.3 (0.4 gram) has 2.0 x 10^6 Bq, or 2 million becquerels of cesium-137:


TEPCO and JAEA’s conclusion:
1. These small pieces of debris came from Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant, most likely from the Reactor 3 building.
2. The high-beta radiation found on the pieces are not from beta-nuclides but from beta radiation from cesium-134 and cesium-137, judging by the composition of the radioactivity.
3. How they got to the river mouth is unknown. It could be by the ocean, or by land. The analysis is inconclusive on that point.

These pieces of floating debris were found to contain; 

Cesium 137 – 2 Million Bq/kg
Cesium 134 – 920,000  Bq/kg

Since the above samples were found and tested, two more highly radioactive floating debris samples were found with the following levels of radiation contamination, including Plutonium 238 and Americium 241; both alpha radiation emitters. 

7,300,000,000 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 and 6,000 Bq/Kg of Pu-238/Am-241 measured from the “hot” substance found in Naraha
http://fukushima-diary.com/2014/02/7300000000-bqkg-of-cs-134137-and-6000-bqkg-of-pu-238am-241measured-from-the-hot-substance-found-in-naraha/


 How are they finding these pieces? Is someone actually looking for them, or are they just being found accidentally? Who is finding these things? 

What is the take away? The building #3 criticality explosion threw fuel rod bits and pieces around for 2 kilometers in all directions. But the highly radioactive plume that came out also settled on anything floating in the ocean, (or on land) such as the wooden and plastic bits and pieces above. 

Obviously, a reactor does not have plastic and wood inside of it, so the radiation had to ‘settle’ on this floating garbage. TEPCO is trying to say these pieces came from inside of the building. While that is possible, it is also just as possible that these floating bits are part of the ocean tsunami debris field. After all, how much wood and plastic is inside of a reactor building and inside of a reactor specifically? None, right? 

Because these pieces were only found recently (2013) over 15 kilometers away from the Fukushima plant, it means absolutely for sure that the radiation on floatable objects made largely of plastic and wood does not ‘wash off’. 

The only question left is whether these pieces floated down the river from somewhere upstream (unlikely), or whether these pieces are part of the larger body of tsunami debris that went downwind of Fukushima while it was exploding, leaking, fuming and melting down/out. 

It does not take a brain scientist to understand that everything in that Pacific ocean garbage patch very likely was hosed with huge doses of hot radiation particles, neutron showers, gamma ray ‘shine’ and more. Even the nuclear experts admit that 80% of the total Fukushima radiation went out into the ocean, so it makes logical sense that these pieces are part of the larger garbage patch floating around out there. 

We do have evidence from the USS Ronald Reagan incident, that huge amounts of radiation came out of Fukushima and went downwind. The carrier got dosed with this radiation for only a brief time and now somewhere between 70 to 200 sailors are suing TEPCO for diseases and cancers caused by that radiation.

Doesn’t it make sense that the garbage plume drifting out in the ocean also contains highly radioactive pieces of wood and plastic like this? That means extreme caution is in order for anyone dealing with this garbage patch coming from Japan and washing ashore anywhere in the world, because the radiation is not ‘washing off’ or wearing off.

Just because a piece of garbage on a beach is small, does not mean it is safe, as now see from the above examples. One small piece of highly radioactive garbage like this can kill, especially if the radiation from it gets inside the body somehow via the hands touching it, then touching food that goes in the mouth, or a piece of this contaminating food/drinks somehow, etc.. Do not approach, handle or touch anything that came from Japan via the ocean, unless you have a pancake style detector and test the object first. 

More radiation tests on more pieces of floating japan tsunami debris will confirm or deny whether the larger debris field is this radioactive or not. We need more citizen and regular scientists (with extreme caution) to test the Japanese debris floating up on Pacific ocean shores, because no one seems to be doing any testing so far, other than these four samples.

Nano Technology Offers Promising Method To Clean Up Fukushima Daiichi Contaminated Soil And Water



Per Keshe Foundation; “The situation in the nuclear power station in Fukushima Daiichi plant is worse than before and there is a need for a bridge gap process to decontaminate the lands and the waters in the area. 

Click on following link to watch video about some paradigm shifting discoveries introduced by the Keshe Foundation, with allied partners featured. 
In this video, an alternative and cheap process to decontaminate the lands and the waters in the house and farmlands is introduced.
Warnings and safety procedures:
Make sure you wear protective clothing when starting to make the Nano materials.
Keep a good distance from the containers when you introduce the water to the container, due to the splash of the boiling content.
We advise that farmers to work as collective groups rather than individuals and ask for TEPCO supervisors to be present, when they carry these procedures out on the land or for water decontamination.
Nano-materials can penetrate skin, please wear gloves when making these materials.
Wear thick clothing materials and heavy boots and gloves, when on the land or decontaminating water.
The process shown in this video will create a condition to remove the materials, but does not create or explains the condition to handle the materials after removal from the land or water.
Once collected, the handling of the contaminated materials have to be left to the TEPCO and the Japanese government.
The farmers should not walk on the land until they are sure the land using radiation detectors is decontaminated using the new technology.
With this process, farming machinery can be used to introduce the new materials on the land and the same machines can be used to plow and collect the new contaminated material from the land.
Use farming machines like tractors to disperse the produced Nano-materials and for collecting the contaminated new materials afterwards from the land.
Any contaminated clothing or tolls can be washed in the water, by placing it in container which fresh processed Nano-coated materials are placed in and after a few hours the clothing can be removed, that the radioactive materials from clothing will be attached to the coated materials. 
Do not use hands to wash the contaminated clothing.
When, washing use a wooden stick, which can be replaced after each wash.
Do not reuse the stick and place it with the Nano materials from the wash in the steel drum explained blow.
The water after wash should be free of any radiation, but the coated elements have to be placed in the container and handed to TEPCO.
Always wear protective clothing that you do not come in touch with contaminated materials, which was extracted from the farmland or the water.
Dig a hole in the ground, place steel container, or drum for the collected materials and place heavy thick slab on top of the hole.
Make sure this is well located away from any residential place.
Never look in to the container and make sure the container is easy to lift and be replaced once it is removed by TEPCO.
Once collected, the handling of the contaminated materials have to be left to the TEPCO and the Japanese government.
We give more advice on the forum of the keshe Foundation workshop.
The work of the Foundation needs support that we can stay independent of governments and multinational for our research. You can supports our work by donating founds to the Foundation using the donation bottom at the Keshe Foundation website that we can carry on with our works and teachings new scientists at our Spaceship Institute.” Source; video above.

Radium; The Epic Story

Measurable radioactive radium levels in the global soil, air and water supplies have been greatly increasing since the industrial age began, largely due to uranium mining, processing and ‘burning’ in nuclear power plants, open air atomic bomb testing, radioactive waste disposal sites, and the burning of fossil fuels, (coal, oil, gas). Each square km of the earth now contains approximately 1 gram of radium, (to a depth of 40 cm). 
But to extract radium from the ground, over 400 tons of uranium ore has to be processed, just to get 1 gram of radium. All together, only 1.5 kilograms of radium were manufactured, before radium was banned and made illegal to sell. 
Radium levels in drinking water may be high when it is extracted from deep wells that are located near radioactive waste disposal sites. Uranium mining results in higher levels of radium in water near uranium mines. Plants absorb this radium from the soil. Animals that eat these plants will bio concentrate radium. Finally, radium may concentrate in fish and other aquatic organisms and bio magnify up the food chain. http://www.lenntech.com/periodic/elements/ra.htm#ixzz2t1Tv38z4
Historically, radium used to be added to things like toothpaste, food, drinking water (see picture below) and hair lotions as a ‘tonic’ using the disproven theory of hormesis. The hormesis promoting industry making radium and other products did it’s best to discredit those warning people about the dangers of low dose radiation, just as the nuclear industry is doing the same thing these days to those activists and experts trying to warn people about the dangers of low dose radiation today.
There are even those people who are still trying to be proponents of the hormesis theory today.

The death of a famous industrialist (picture above) and of Madame Curie, plus the deaths of the radium factory workers from the toxic effects of low dose radium radiation sealed the fate of radium, and it was banned. Even it’s medical use was taken away. But why, if it was so good for ‘treating’ the Big C?
But the interesting questions is this… if radium is so dangerous in even minute quantities due to the danger of low dose radiation effects that cause cancer, leukemia and other diseases, why aren’t the other radioactive elements also banned? After all, it is not just radium that emits alpha and gamma radiation.

Radium Girls And Radium Dials; Ottowa Illinois, Death City; via @AGreenRoad 
According to EPA; “Radium (chemical symbol Ra) is a naturally-occurring radioactive metal. Its most common isotopes are radium-226, radium 224, and radium-228. Radium is a radionuclide formed by the decay of uranium and thorium in the environment. It occurs at low levels in virtually all rock, soil, water, plants, and animals.
The Basics
Who discovered radium?
Radium was discovered in 1898 by French physicist and Nobel laureate Marie Curie in pitchblende (a uranium and radium-bearing mineral). There is about 1 gram of radium in 7 tons of pitchblende. Elemental radium was isolated by Mme. Curie in 1911. (She died of cancer.)
Where does radium come from?
Radium forms when isotopes of uranium or thorium decay in the environment. Most radium (radium-226) originates from the decay of the plentiful uranium-238. When uranium (or thorium) occurs in high levels in rock, radium is often also found in high levels.
What are the properties of radium?
Radium is a naturally radioactive, silvery-white metal when freshly cut. It blackens on exposure to air.
Purified radium and some radium compounds glow in the dark (luminesce). The radiation emitted by radium can also cause certain materials, called “phosphors” to emit light. Mixtures of radium salts and appropriate phosphors were widely used for clock dials and gauges before the (cancer and disease) risks of radium exposure were understood.
Metallic radium is highly chemically reactive. It forms compounds that are very similar to barium compounds, making separation of the two elements difficult.
The various isotopes of radium originate from the radioactive decay of uranium or thorium. Radium-226 is found in the uranium-238 decay series, and radium-228 and -224 are found in the thorium-232 decay series.
Radium-226, the most common isotope, is an alpha emitter, with accompanying gamma radiation, and has a half-life of about 1600 years. Radium-228, is principally a beta emitter and has a half-life of 5.76 years. Radium-224, an alpha emitter, has a half life of 3.66 days. Radium decays to form isotopes of the radioactive gas radon, which is not chemically reactive. Stable lead is the final product of this lengthy radioactive decay series.
Radon Dangers; Hormesis Explored; via A Green Road Blog 
What is radium used for?
In the early 1900’s, when it was newly discovered, no one understood the dangers of radioactive radium. People were fascinated with its mysterious properties, especially the luminescence produced when it is mixed with a phosphor. Industries sprang up to manufacture hundreds of consumer products containing radium. Advertisements (and proponents of the hormesis theory) proclaimed its special powers and unique effects in such products such as hair tonic, toothpaste, ointments, and elixirs. Glow in the dark watch and clock faces were immensely popular.
Most of its original uses have been halted for health and safety reasons, but its wide use in luminescent paints continued through World War II, because the soft glow of radium’s luminescence made aircraft dials, gauges and other instruments visible to their operators at night. 
Radium was also an early radiation source for cancer treatment. Small seeds were implanted in tumors to kill cancerous cells. Cobalt-60 has mostly replaced it.
Radium is a radiation source in some industrial radiography devices, a technology similar to x-ray imaging used in industry to inspect for flaws in metal parts. When radium is mixed with beryllium it becomes a good source of neutrons, useful in well logging devices and research. Radium also has been added to the tips of lightening rods, improving their effectiveness by ionizing the air around it.
Exposure to Radium
As a decay product of uranium and thorium, radium is common in virtually all rock, soil, and water. Usually concentrations are very low. However, geologic processes can form concentrations of naturally radioactive elements, especially uranium and radium. Radium and its salts are soluble in water. As a result, groundwater in areas where concentrations of radium are high in surrounding bedrock typically has relatively high radium content.
How does radium change in the environment?
All isotopes of radium are radioactive. As they decay, they emit radiation and form new radioactive elements, until they reach stable lead. Isotopes of radium decay to form different isotopes of radon. For example, radium-226 decays to radon-222, and radium-228 goes through several decays to radium-224 before forming radon-220.
How do people come in contact with radium?
Since radium is present at low levels in the natural environment, everyone has some minor exposure to it (due to nuclear industry emissions, and carbon fuel burning). However, individuals may be exposed to higher levels of radium if they live in an area where there is an elevated level of radium in the surrounding rock and soil. Private well water in such areas can also be an added source of radium.
The concentration of radium in drinking water is generally low, but there are specific geographic regions in the United States where higher concentrations of radium occur in water due to geologic sources. Limited information is available about the amounts of radium that are typically present in food and air, but they are very low.
People can also be exposed to radium if it is released into the air from the burning of coal or other fuels. Certain occupations can also lead to high exposures to radium, such as working in a uranium mine or in a plant that processes uranium ores. Phosphate rocks typically contain relatively high levels of both uranium and radium and can be a potential source of exposure in areas where phosphate is mined.
In some parts of the country, former radium processing plants exist that were highly contaminated with radium. However, most of these have been cleaned up and do not pose a serious health threat any longer.
Radium emits several different kinds of radiation, in particular, alpha and gamma radiation. Alpha radiation is only a concern if radium is taken into the body through inhalation or ingestion. Gamma radiation, or rays, can expose individual even at a distance. As a result, radium on the ground, for example, can expose individuals externally to gamma rays or be inhaled or ingested with contaminated food or water. The greatest health risk from radium in the environment, however, is actually its decay product radon, which can collect in buildings.
How does radium get into the body?
People may swallow radium with food and water, or may inhale it as part of dust in the air. Radium can also be produced in the body from “parent” radionuclides (uranium and thorium) that have been inhaled or swallowed, but this is not a significant source.
What does radium do once it gets into the body?
Most radium that is swallowed (about 80%) promptly leaves the body through the feces. The other 20% enters the bloodstream and accumulates preferentially in the bones. Some of this radium is excreted through the feces and urine over a long time. However, a portion will remain in the bones throughout the person’s lifetime.
Health Effects of Radium
Radium emits several different kinds of radiation, in particular, alpha particles and gamma rays. Alpha particles are harmful if emitted inside the body. However, both internal and external exposure to gamma radiation is harmful. Gamma rays can penetrate the body, so gamma emitters like radium can result in exposures even when the source is a distance away.
Long-term exposure to radium increases the risk of developing several diseases. Inhaled or ingested radium increases the risk of developing such diseases as lymphoma, bone cancer, and diseases that affect the formation of blood, such as leukemia and aplastic anemia. These effects usually take years to develop. External exposure to radium’s gamma radiation increases the risk of cancer to varying degrees in all tissues and organs.
However, the greatest health risk from radium is from exposure to its radioactive decay product radon. It is common in many soils and can collect in homes and other buildings.
Is there a medical test to determine exposure to radium?
There are tests that can determine exposure to radium or other radioactive substances. For example, a whole body count can measure the total amount of radioactivity in the body, and urine and feces can be tested for the presence of radionuclides.
These tests are not routinely performed in a doctor’s office because it requires special laboratory equipment. There is no test that can detect external exposure to radium’s gamma radiation, unless the doses were very high, and cellular damage is detectable.
Protecting People from Radium
You need special equipment to detect the presence of radium. However, you can buy radon detection kits at most hardware stores.
What can I do to protect myself and my family from radium?
The most effective way to protect yourself and your family is to test your home for radium’s decay product, radon.
What is EPA doing about radium?
The U.S. Congress passes laws that authorize EPA and other federal agencies, to protect public health and the environment from radium and other radioactive materials. EPA has issued a variety of regulations that limit the release of radium and other radionuclides to the environment. For example, Congress passed the Uranium Mill Tailings Radiation Control Act (UMTRCA). EPA has established standards for cleaning up and managing leftover uranium ore at inactive ore-processing plants under the authority of UMTRCA. The U.S. Department of Energy is responsible for conducting the cleanups, and the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission oversees and manages them.
This page provides a summary and link to the full statute.
Complementing these efforts, EPA’s Superfund program identifies abandoned industrial sites contaminated with radium and other radionuclides and chemicals. It then assesses the health and environmental risks the sites pose, and assigns priorities for cleaning them up based on those risks. Superfund regulations require sites to be cleaned up to the point that people living on the sites after cleanup would have no more than a 1-in-10,000 to a 1-in-1,000,000 increased risk of developing cancer from exposure to contaminants.
This page provides a summary and a link to the complete statute.
This site contains information about individual Superfund sites.
Other laws passed by Congress address specific environmental media. The Clean Air Act authorizes EPA to establish annual limits, known as National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants, for the maximum amount of radium and other radionuclides that may be released to the air. For radium the “NESHAP” is 10 millirem. 
The Safe Drinking Water Act authorizes EPA to limit the Maximum Contaminant Levels of radium and other radionuclides in publicly supplied drinking water. For 226 and 228 radium, the MCL is 5 picocuries per liter and for 224 radium it is 15pCi/l. Both the air and water standards limit the increased lifetime cancer risk to about 2 in 10,000.”
What is the take away? Radium has an interesting history of being hailed as the saviour of mankind via the ‘peaceful’ use of the atom. It was a potent cure all and a cure for Cancer, until it was proven that it caused cancer and deaths, even in low doses of exposure. Radium was banned from use in public and was no longer used in medicine due to public fears of radiation dangers of it. Other radioactive elements were substituted for radium, but they are no less dangerous, toxic or radioactive, so what is the difference?
All radioactive elements cause cancer, leukemia, genetic damage and other dis-eases, whether they are man made, like plutonium or tritium, or ‘natural’, like radon, uranium, or radium. These substances have no place around humans and they should all be banned from both public and medical use, because safer, less costly, less toxic alternatives have always existed and still exist today.

Why Dilution Is NOT The Solution With Radioactive Man Made Elements

As shown in the video above, all of Nature including your backyard, your garden, the farm where you get your food from and your body is being used as a free nuclear waste dumping ground.

The pro nuclear apologists love to talk about how dilution will solve all of the problems of nuclear radiation and make it all ‘harmless and safe’. The dilution method is certainly the cheapest solution, because there is no cost to dump radioactive waste into Nature. Does dilution really work with man made radioactive elements? Let’s explore this concept, shall we?
All nuclear facilities, labs, incinerators, and more are ‘legally’ allowed to dump huge amounts of radioactive elements into the air, water and ground downwind or downstream of nuclear facilities, mines, reprocessing plants and more. According to nuclear experts, even the radiation dumped all around the world and absorbed by everyone as a result of the Chernobyl or Fukushima mega disaster is all ‘legal’ and under the ‘safe’ maximums, due to ‘dilution’. Nuclear experts claim that the public will ‘accept’ and absorb the ‘diluted’ radiation from one accident per year, and not complain. Most of these accidents are hidden, denied or covered up.. Is this ‘diluted’ radiation really ‘safe’? Are you aware of just how many ‘accidents’ there are?

http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/p/nuclear-accidents-around-world.html

According to Ken Buesseler from the Woods Hole Insititute, 90,000 Bequerels from cesium per cubic meter of ocean water is ‘legal’. This means that all of the radiation released by the mega nuclear disaster at Fukushima can happen over and over again, once a week, and no one would be held accountable for violating anything. As he says in the following video, it’s all legal. And the IAEA goes further and says that dumping all of the radioactive water at Fukushima in those thousands of tanks, into the ocean, is also ‘legal’. 


Woods Hole Oceanic’s Ken Buesseler- you can find him associated with Hugh Livingston at the IAEA throughout his history and he has the man on his facebook friends list. Why is this so important to note? You will know a man by the company that he keeps and by where he gets his money. Why not find out more about Ken, by following these links..These are the folks that he is ‘friends’ with. The following nuclear industry and pro nuclear organizations are his financial partners.. http://www.whoi.edu/main/partners-sponsors


But those partners, such as the IAEA, are not what they are portrayed to be by the mass media. Would it surprise you if you found out that the IAEA is nothing more than a sales and marketing organization for the nuclear industry? Would you trust a sales organization to give you ‘safety’ or health advice?

The IAEA, which is the marketing arm of the nuclear industry, recommends dumping ALL of the highly radioactive water in the tanks at Fukushima into the ocean, where they say it will be ‘diluted’.


But the real life consequences that happen as a result of this ‘legal’ dumping and ‘dilution’ may not turn out to be as ‘safe’ as the nuclear experts love to claim….

Low Dose Radiation Causes Oxygen Depletion Globally, Kills Oxygen Producing Trees And Algae; via @AGreenRoad
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2013/07/low-dose-radiation-causes-oxygen.html

If people really knew what was going on… It does not take much radiation to kill a person, a fish, or a plant. It does not take a lot of radiation to make a person, animal or plant sick long term, using a ‘slow motion’ bullet in the form of a radioactive particle. How small of a ‘diluted’ dose of radiation can cause sickness or death?

If you inhale a millionth of a gram of plutonium, the surrounding cells receive a very, very high dose. Most (cells) die within that area, because it’s an alpha emitter. The cells on the periphery remain viable. They mutate, and the regulatory genes are damaged. Years later, that person develops cancer. Now, that’s true for radioactive iodine, that goes to the thyroid; cesium-137, that goes to the brain and muscles; strontium-90 goes to bone, causing bone cancer and leukemia.”
Renowned doctor and scientist Dr. Helen Caldicott MD



Most of the pro nuclear folks dislike nuclear ‘truth tellers’ and put them down via personal character assassinations. They may say; ‘but he/she cannot be trusted’. She is lying, that is not possible. They make insinuations and accusations. In the case of Helen, is what she is saying above the truth or a lie? Let’s find out, shall we? Read the first article below and the American Journal of Pathology article above, which proves she is telling the truth, via multiple scientific and government studies.

Is there more proof than what Dr. Helen Caldicott MD says? The answer is yes.. Bottom line, there is no ‘safe’ dose of radiation. All radiation is cumulative and causes damage. Even a ‘diluted’ dose of radiation in the form of ONE HOT PARTICLE has some risk and will cause some deaths, especially so in the most vulnerable populations, such as the young and fragile elderly.

The laws allowing this ‘legal’ radioactive waste dumping and huge mega nuclear accidents without any penalties, fines, lawsuits, sanctions, or jail are all based on the ‘dilution’ theory. Just because it is legal, does not make it correct, right, ethical, moral or justified. It used to be ok to sell radium water, and other dangerous cancer causing things, but that was outlawed when the truth was ‘discovered’. Maybe it is time to change the laws and how we generate energy, rather than causing millions of cancers and deaths per year from low dose radiation. 
It used to be legal to just dump reactors and barrels full of waste into the ocean. That is no longer legal, for good reason. Dilution was not considered enough of a justification to allow dumping of concentrated nuclear wastes in the ocean. So why is it still ok to dump high level waste into the air or groundwater?

http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2013/11/locations-and-amounts-of-radioactive.html

It also used to be legal to do open air testing of nuclear weapons, but both of those things have been banned after the evidence came out. The pro nuclear scientists were counting on dilution to make the radiation ‘go away’, but that plan did not work. Instead, the diluted radiation caused cancer rates and deaths to skyrocket, the longer those open air nuclear tests went on.

Why is it ok to dump radiation into the air from incineration of wastes and normal operation of nuclear power plants, if nuclear bombs are no longer allowed to dump their radiation into the air and be ‘diluted’?  Why are nuclear accidents allowed to dump concentrated doses of radiation equaling thousands of nuclear bombs each, if open air nuclear bomb testing is illegal?

Medical doctors saw a direct cause and effect relationship between the nuclear bomb tests and diseases, plus cancers of all kinds, increasing rapidly as more and more ‘diluted’ radiation spread around the world from those nuclear bombs.

It only takes one ‘hot’ particle next to a DNA strand, damaging it, which then creates one of 1,000 genetic diseases, as itemized below. Even a ‘diluted’ dose of radiation can cause a genetic disease in countless future generations, because DNA is passed on from one generation to the next into infinity. Even the ‘natural’ radioactive elements such as thorium, uranium, radium and radon break DNA strands…

It also used to be legal to use radioactive substances to promote ‘health’, via the hormesis theory, but that has been been made illegal as well. You cannot sell radium water or manufacture radon and have people breathe it in, via some elixir, potion, machine or medical procedure. The EPA has a great website explaining how even ‘natural’ radon causes many lung cancers. It is amazing how many people do not even know the basic facts about the dangers of radiation and lung cancer from ‘natural’ radon.

Radon Dangers; Hormesis Explored; via @AGreenRoad
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/04/radon-dangers-and-hormesis.html 

The only problem with this ‘theory’ about hormesis, is that it does not work, and never has. Madam Curie and all of the early radiation researchers got increased doses of radiation, and they all died of cancer. So much for ‘natural’ radiation being different from man made radioactive elements. Both natural and man made radiations are dangerous for your health.

The dilution theory did not work for radioactive radon, radium, uranium, plutonium or any of the other 1,000 harmful radioactive elements coming out of a nuclear accident, and it does not work for what is going into the ocean, air and ground either.

The supposedly ‘diluted’ and invisible radiation from nuclear accidents and regular emissions from nuclear facilities goes into the air, water and ground.

http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/03/radioactive-bananas-peeling-mystery.html
That supposedly diluted and ‘safe’ radiation coming from man made sources always concentrates up the food chain back to you and your family via bio-concentration, which is another thing that the pro nuclear apologists fail to take into account. As little as 10 Bq/kg in the body can cause negative health effects according to medical and scientific research. So why is the ‘safe’ level of radiation set at 1,000 Bq/kg in the USA?

What the pro nuclear apologists also ignore and do not talk about is how even low dose radiation has the effect of mutating bacteria and viruses into stronger super bacteria and super viruses. Have you noticed how many more super bugs are around these days? Low level ‘diluted’ radiation is partially to blame for that.

The pro nuclear experts also claim that just a very small ‘exclusion zone’ for a few years around any nuclear accident will take care of any harmful radiation and that everywhere else is ‘safe’. Those pro nuclear apologists have never visited or stayed with families affected by low dose radiation, such as those in Belarus, near Chernobyl, around Three Mile Island in the ‘Valley of Death’, and now around Fukushima.

If nuclear plants are so ‘safe’, why is that the 18 spy agencies, all of the branches of the US military and Homeland Security is so hyper vigilant around trying to keep a few mere grams of anything radioactive out of the country and away from major cities? Why are they so afraid of a ‘dirty bomb’ going off? Why are they getting the military ready (but not civilians) for an EMP pulse? Why are they recommending that all nuclear plants increase their security, after an 84 year old nun and two companions just wandered into a facility containing many tons of plutonium, without any problems?

Fukushima released close to 1000 TONS of highly radioactive  man made elements. But no mention is made of the danger of all of this being released into the air, water, groundwater or ocean. Why not? Why is there no mention of Japan burning over 30 tons of highly radioactive high level waste at sites all over Japan?
Why is there no mention of bio concentration up the food chain from all of these pro nuclear folks? It is well known that even ‘diluted’ amounts of radiation in water concentrate up the food chain and come back to humans.

Steven Starr, via D’un: “Cesium-137 also tends to biomagnify as it moves up the food chain. “This means it becomes progressively more concentrated in predator species. We have seen this before with other industrial toxins, such as DDT, which can magnify its concentration millions of times from the bottom to the top of a food chain.


“Consequently, all of the foodstuffs in a contaminated region tend to contain Cesium-137. Those naturally rich in potassium, such as mushrooms and berries, tend to have very high concentrations. Dairy products and meats also tend to have higher concentrations.”

http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/03/primer-in-art-of-deception-cult-of.html

Bottom line, when you go to court and have witnesses to a crime and they are proven to be liars, then you as a jurist can no longer believe anything they say. Why would this be any different when it comes to nuclear power, nuclear weapons, and ‘next generation’ nuclear power plants? When the pro nuclear apologists say that nuclear power is cheap, safe, clean and green, you know that these things are all nothing more than lies and deception. 
Another one of many deceptions foisted on a gullible public is the lie that Fukushima is only 10% of Chernobyl and that it is in cold shutdown. The lie is that Fukushima is being ‘decommissioned’, when it is actually totally out of control and there are multiple meltdowns happening, with rapidly increasing levels of radiation underground, in the ocean and into the air.
According to the French Institute de Radioprotection et de Surete Nucleaire (IRSN) and the Austrian Zentralanstalt fur Meteorolgie and Geodnynamik (ZAMG), Fukushima had 3 times the total release of radiation from Chernobyl in only the first few days. But the uncontrolled radiation releases from Fukushima has continued on since then, non stop. 
The above video shows the IRSN measuring Japanese soil that has 500,000 Bq/kg of cesium, long after the mega disaster. Levels up to 15 million Bq/kg were found. Does this sound like ‘diluted’ radiation to you? 


Bottom line, AGRP belives that if you look at the evidence presented in the links above, you will agree that both the ‘dilution’ theory and the hormesis theory are bunch of hogwash when it comes to man made radioactive elements such as plutonium and tritium. The whole nuclear industry is based on lies and deceptions, so when a pro nuclear apologist claims that nuclear power is safe and dilution is the answer, you can come back and call him or her a liar, and KNOW that what you are saying is justified, no matter if that person is much smarter, has a PhD, or making $1 million a year.  

As you explore the links and watch the videos to become an expert on this subject, you will realize and understand how truly horrible, deceptive, and terrible the nuclear industry is for the whole world.

300,000 Atomic Veterans Forcibly Exposed To Nuclear Radiation, Made Into Radioactive Lab Rats

EON is proud to host-post another important documentary by the Academy Award-winning team Vivienne Verdon-Roe and Michael Porter. Their 1994 expose’ tells the currently relevant story of the 300,000 U.S. soldiers and sailors who were used as EXPERIMENTAL ANIMALS in America’s quest for nuclear dominance…and were then denied health care. These men were not volunteers, they were ordered to participate in a radiation experiment, without being told about the risks and without being given any protection.
A major voice in the film – directed and edited by Porter, produced and narrated by Verdon-Roe – is former Navy seaman Anthony Guarisco, founder of the INTERNATIONAL ALLIANCE OF ATOMIC VETERANS, c/o Vincent L. Guarisco, 5312 Covina Rd., Bullhead, AZ. 86426

For updates on Anthony and his wife Mary, here are two recent articles by their son, journalist Vincent Guarisco

These radiation victims sound like they are part of a Nazi death camp experiment, maybe that is because former Nazis were in charge of this nuclear program. The victims were victimized first by subjecting them forcibly to radiation and swearing them to secrecy. Then they were victimized and abused (second time), by not disclosing to them any warnings, treatment options, or even information about true radiation exposure.

Finally, the victims were abused again, for a (third time) by preventing them from suing anyone for damages or harm done via immunity laws passed by the military industrial complex and the nuclear industry. The abusers just waited for everyone to die.

Anyone who dared to speak out was punished for violating ‘secrecy’ laws. Nothing has changed, as this is still the situation today. Sailors aboard the Ronald Reagan were exposed to fallout from Fukushima, and were treated about the same as the first lab rats and pigs in the video above. 

Everyone on Earth was exposed to the radiation from these open air nuclear bomb tests, and everyone is still are being exposed to invisible radiation from DU, nuclear plants, uranium mines, reprocessing facilities, storage facilities and much more.

We are all guinea pigs in a huge planetary laboratory, studying the effects of low dose radiation on human beings. Just because radiation is invisible, does not mean it disappears and has no more effects. Precisely because a radioactive element’s radiation is invisible, that makes those radioactive elements that much more deadly and dangerous. Everything looks normal, and you cannot see the radiation that is killing you, plus causing genetic diseases and cancers.
The 2,400 open air nuclear bomb tests gave everyone on Earth a good ‘experimental’ dose of radiation. Most US citizens still have radioactive strontium 90 in their bones, measured in terms of units; 1-4. The amount each person has inside varies between 1 to 4, and yes there are some people that have 4 units of stronium inside of them.


A person who has only 1.5 units of strontium and who dies and is cremated has enough strontium in that ash to make a liter of water with those ashes in it, 180 times over the safe limit of set by the EPA for drinking water. Now Fukushima is releasing massive quantities of Strontium 90 into the Pacific, where it will be concentrated through bio concentration up the food chain into people.  http://www.nuclearcrimes.org/3-3.php

Have you ever wondered where these nuclear scientists that set off these bombs and who keep having these radiation ‘accidents’ that release ever increasing amounts of radiation into this world, (making everyone into unwilling radioactive lab rats), came from originally? 
In 1945, as part of Operation Paperclip, the United States government recruited 1,600 Nazi scientists, many of whom had performed human experimentation in Nazi concentration camps. The scientists were offered immunity from any war crimes they had committed during the course of their work for the Nazi government, in return for doing similar research for the United States government. Many of the Nazi scientists continued their human experimentation when they arrived in the United States.[158]

What kind of future would you predict for any country getting involved with people like this? Any nation or city inviting these people in is building a nuclear house built on a foundation of extremism, secrecy, deceptions, double dealing and lies.

If the nuclear industry can treat honorable US veterans little differently than the pigs that got radiated in metal cages, while squealing in agony, and then offer no help, while hiding and/or ‘losing’ the radiation dose records that they got exposed to, what do you think they are going to do with you and your family? Do you really believe that the nuclear industry that got started with Nazi’s, death camps, secrets, lies, genocide and invisible poisons is going to do good things for humanity?

As you can see from the video, this experiment was done on young men, in the prime of their life, but it now affects countless future generations. You can see with your own eyes, the effects it has had on their kids. If those kids survive and have their own kids, the result will be no different, but may end up being even worse, because the genetic damage accumulates with each generation. 

The radiation experiment continues today. We are all radioactive lab rats. As long as we allow this industry to continue to pour radioactive poisons into the air, water, and soil, it will bioconcentrate back up the food chain to your children. The results are obvious. Please do your part to help stop this genocide.

MD Reveals How To Prevent Radiation Sickness With Macrobiotic Diet

Part I
Part II

After Nagasaki, an MD worked with patients who were victims of radiation sickness using a special diet that anyone can use. 
Macrobiotic Diet Prevents Radiation Sickness Among A-Bomb Survivors in Japan – In August, 1945, at the time of the atomic bombing of Japan, Tatsuichiro Akizuki, M.D., was director of the Department of Internal Medicine at St. Francis’s Hospital in Nagasaki. Most patients in the hospital, located one mile from the center of the blast, survived the initial effects of the bomb, but soon after came down with symptoms of radiation sickness from the fallout that had been released. 

Dr. Akizuki fed everyone a strict macrobiotic diet of brown rice, miso soup, wakame, sea vegetables, Hokkaido pumpkin, and sea salt. He prohibited the consumption of sugar and sweets. He saved everyone in his hospital, while many other atomic bomb survivors in the city perished from radiation sickness. 

I gave the cooks and staff strict orders that they should make unpolished whole-grain rice balls, adding some salt to them, prepare strong miso soup for each meal, and never use sugar. When they didn’t follow my orders, I scolded them without mercy, ‘Never take sugar. Sugar will destroy your blood!

There is an ancient tradition going all the way back to the Greeks and Romans about using diet rather than medicines for self healing. Although changing diet is probably the most difficult thing for people to do, if it can be done, this may be one possible way to deal with difficult health challenges.

VA – List Of Diseases And Cancers Associated with Ionizing Radiation Exposure




List of Diseases Associated with Ionizing Radiation Exposure


“VA has recognized certain diseases as related to ionizing radiation exposure during military service. Veterans may be eligible for disability compensation and health care for these diseases. Their survivors also may be eligible for survivors’ benefits.
Presumptive diseases related to ionizing radiation
For Veterans who participated in a radiation-risk activity during service (including “Atomic Veterans”), VA assumes that certain cancers are related to their exposure. We call these “presumptive diseases.”
Cancers of the:

bile ducts,
bone,
brain,
breast,
colon,
esophagus,
gall bladder,
liver,
lung (including bronchiolo-alveolar cancer),
pancreas,
pharynx,
ovary,
salivary gland,
small intestine,
stomach,
thyroid,
urinary tract (kidney/renal, pelvis, urinary bladder, and urethra)

Leukemia (except chronic lymphocytic leukemia)
Lymphomas (except Hodgkin’s disease)
Multiple myeloma (cancer of plasma cells)
These Veterans don’t have to prove a connection between these diseases and their service to be eligible for disability compensation. Their survivors also may be eligible for survivors’ benefits if the Veteran dies as the result of one of these diseases.

Other diseases associated with radiation exposure
VA recognizes that the following diseases are possibly caused by exposure to ionizing radiation during service:

All cancers
Non-malignant thyroid nodular disease
Parathyroid adenoma
Posterior subcapsular cataracts
Tumors of the brain and central nervous system
Eligibility for disability compensation or survivors’ benefits depends on how much radiation the Veteran received and other factors, such as the period of time between exposure to radiation and the development of the disease. VA decides these claims on a case-by-case basis.
VA also will consider the possibility that other diseases not listed above were caused by radiation, if supported by medical or scientific evidence. To be eligible for compensation, VA must be able to establish that it is at least as likely as not that a Veteran’s disease was caused by his/her exposure to radiation during military service.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
VA presumes amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) diagnosed in all Veterans who had 90 days or more continuous active military service is related to their service, although ALS is not related to radiation exposure.”Source:
http://www.publichealth.va.gov/exposures/radiation/diseases.asp#sthash.y0eIhiO9.HJpqtHCz.dpuf

The VA has admitted to and is paying for the consequences of low dose radiation exposure causing a large variety of cancers and diseases. So why can’t the nuclear industry admit to these? They seem to think that no one gets sick after being exposed to radiation, when the VA is admitting radiation does cause multiple cancers and diseases, and then PAYS people for this damage or death.

DNA Evidence May Prove Link Between Cancers And Fukushima Radiation In The Near Future

What if there was a way to establish a direct and provable in court link between cancer and Fukushima radiation? 
In recent history, justice has been served by bringing DNA evidence into the courtroom around murders and other violent acts that result in death or injury. DNA evidence is now a well established science that provides evidence of a crime. 
DNA evidence is worth much more than even eyewitness testimony. DNA technology has been advancing constantly, so that less and less DNA to establish a ‘profile’. Nowadays, all it takes to make a court case and have enough DNA evidence, is just 3 or 4 cells. 
DNA evidence can also exonerate the innocent, as shown in the following video..
What is going to be the effect when DNA evidence is established as a DIRECT cause of cancer and death due to a mega nuclear disaster such as Fukushima? Here is the landmark scientific study that provides a potential FUTURE mechanism for any lawyer or legal lawsuit against the nuclear industry.
Hess, J. et al Gain of chromosome band 7q11 in papillary thyroid carcinomas of young patients is associated with exposure to low-dose irradiation. Proceeding of the National Academy of Sciences USA (PNAS); Link to publication
“Scientists have been able to discriminate between the cancers caused by the radioactive contamination and those that arise naturally. Prof. Zitzelsberger ascribes the success of this study to the careful collection, documentation and storage of thyroid cancers from the Chernobyl region in the Chernobyl Tissue Bank. He noted that this unique collection of materials made it possible for the team to compare for the first time tumors from children of the same age and regional background. 
Gain of chromosome band 7q11 in papillary thyroid carcinomas of young patients is associated with exposure to low-dose irradiation
This DNA marker is could possibly end up being the nuclear industry’s worst nightmare in the near future. Can you imagine this scenario? A medical professional or lawyer team anywhere the world orders a DNA test and has the cancer tissue analyzed to see if it was caused by Fukushima or Chernobyl, or Santa Susana, or Three Mile Island radioactive elements, each of which have a unique ‘signature’, just like people have fingerprints. 
Obviously, the scientific study above was focused around Chernobyl and thyroid cancers, but the concept is applicable to any nuclear accident, including Fukushima. Quite possibly, the same process could be applied to any tissue sample, from any cancer, in any area of the body. This is definitely on the cutting edge and any lawyer plus DNA expert making a case this way will create history. 
If the courts and justices are even handed and really in pursuit of justice, rather than allying themselves with the nuclear industry while dismissing most cases brought by nuclear fallout victims, as has been the case so far, this could spell the end of the nuclear age. Imagine the effect of bringing in ‘fingerprint evidence’ that documents deaths caused DIRECTLY by nuclear accidents….
The crimes of genocide have been committed. Chernobyl has directly caused over 1 million deaths already. Thousands of victims have already been claimed due to Fukushima radiation. But at least now there is a chance that justice can be sought and found, if not by the victims, then by the relatives and family of the deceased. All that is needed is a tissue bank, as was established after Chernobyl. 
Lacking a tissue bank, DNA will last practically forever, if you dry the tissue or freeze it. Document the chain of custody from the person who took the sample to the testing person who brings the DNA evidence from the tissue into court. 
Quite possibly, a family of a cancer victim can sue for damages many years in the future, if they keep tissue samples of the cancer cells from a family victim. After all, there is no time limit for justice on murder, correct? 
Another method that can possibly be used to go after nuclear companies is to ID the chemical signature of the nuclear fuel that they leak, spill or allow to melt down. This would be much the same method that the Coast Guard uses when they go to court to prove that a specific ship spilled oil in a specific spot, despite lack of any witnesses or admission by the ship owners or captain. 
The Coast Guard gathers a sample of the ship’s oil, and then matches it chemically to the oil spilled. This is much the same process used in DNA matching of a murderer’s DNA found at a crime scene. In court, this chemical ‘fingerprint’ is admissible as evidence. Why couldn’t this be done with radioactive elements too, as they are also chemicals, just in the metals category?
For those who want to do something now, it is always possible to sue in small claims court. A large number of people can gather together and sue a nuclear company together in one case. No lawyers or special experts are involved, so the only cost is the filing of the small claims court fee. This technique has been used by neighborhoods to go after slum landlords who refuse to kick out drug dealers for example. No DNA evidence is involved, of course. 
A whole community could sue a nuclear utility for whatever harm they are causing (or have caused). The case can be over and done with fairly quickly. Just one local judge is involved and he/she usually lives in the local community. So if the people suing present a good case, it should be an open and shut case. 
Since the nuclear industry in many countries has a legal immunity from lawsuits, a recent class action to try and get this changed may open things up on a larger front. Wouldn’t you agree that a company that can harm or kill millions of people should not be immune from lawsuits? 
via MamaBears AgainstNukes “The lawyers for the 1.415 plaintiffs stated that they have filed a lawsuit at the Tokyo District Court, describing the case as a landmark challenge to nuclear power plant manufacturers immunity from liability in nuclear accidents.” 
The legal process can have a huge negative impact on nuclear companies. The San Onofre nuclear plant had a number of lawsuits filed against it re-opening, after it admitted that many of the steam tubes it had just replaced were leaking (within 18 months of installation). It is quite possible that the large number of lawsuits, combined with citizen activism, plus citizen reporting via numerous blogs and youtube videos, all made a difference. Bottom line, keep fighting and never give up. And remember, that there are many ways to ‘win’. 
Here is another way that women specifically can make a difference. “Japanese women have started a twitter account that says; “We won’t have sex with men who vote for Yoichi Masuzoe”! Yoichi is a misogynist candidate running in the Tokyo gubernatorial election. He says women can’t make good conductors nor composers so they aren’t meant to be politicians either.” Yoichi Masuzoe is the candidate for ProNuke and Restart Nuke Plants supported by LDP.

What Happens If You Offer People Radioactive Fukushima Bottled Water To Drink?

Political prankster Mark Dice offers people cold bottles of “Fukushima Imported Mineral Water” that are clearly marked with a large radiation symbol he glued on the bottles to see if anyone would drink it without realizing the significance of the name “Fukushima” or realizing the bottles were marked “radioactive.” He goes so far as to say the water is from Fukushima, and has added radiation added to it, which does not seem to make any difference. 

Watch what happens as people choose to either refuse or accept and drink the bottled water that is clearly labeled ‘radioactive’. 




Political prankster Mark Dice asks San Diego beach-goers if they’ll sign a petition supporting “the Police State” which includes “Orwellian” and “Nazi-Style” tactics to “keep Americans safe” in this “Brave New World.” Amazingly, people do not even hesitate; they just sign. People seem to not be able to think for themselves, even when confronted with a Nazi who is proposing to install a Nazi style police state in the USA. 

What is the take away? Think about what people are telling you. Think about what people are asking for. Think about what people are asking you to sign or support. Do not just automatically say yes. Your voice, your signature, your vote makes a HUGE difference both in the affirmative, and in the negative.

Wisdom Versus Intelligence When It Comes To Nuclearism, Global Corporatism And 1% ‘Rulership’

Peter Coyote reveals the role and power of a mysterious, very unscientific wisdom. 

What the US values currently is a trust and faith in scientific ‘certainty’ and formulas so complex, that no one but the ‘experts’ can understand them or their special language. What is the price that people are paying for this blind worshiping at the alter of science and the dogma it’s proponents must believe?


What is the role and power of an invisible world that may be full of mysteries? Are there powers and dimensions not accessible to science? What happens to a culture that values only materialism and the physical senses of sight, sound, touch and smell? What is the value of love? Who can measure love? Who can live without love, and exist solely in the world of ‘science’ and certainty, where everything must be proven through peer reviewed ‘studies’?


The invisible dimensions such as love and intuition or consciousness are NOT just the domain of religions. These invisible but valuable parts of life are a common heritage that is shared alike by not just humans, but also by animals, plants, and yes, even rocks.

The values of the invisible dimensions include but are not limited to such things as all beings being equal and having an equal right to exist. Science claims that some people are ‘special’, namely nuclear scientists and the corporations representing them.

The corporations representing nuclear scientists must be held up and worshiped, both with money, power, money and influence in politics, plus media control. Meanwhile, those who are not ‘special’, and who hold only ‘wisdom’ or common sense, are demonized, attacked, demeaned, made fun of, ignored, and smeared, just as imported religions demonized, attacked and squelched the American Indian wisdom, culture and traditions 200 plus years ago. 

The ancient wisdom contained in the commons states that all people have an equal voice and say in what should be their fate, not just a special few, the 1%, or any other ‘special’ group, such as the pro nuclear scientists.
Another part of the commons and wisdom code is that people are not masters of the present universe, but stewards of this world and all it contains, taking care of it.

Our one duty as stewards is passing on what we were given by those who came before us in the form of air, water, soil, animals and plants, in as good a shape or better than it was received by us, for many future generations. (Obviously, this is not happening, in part due to a combination of hyper focusing on the ‘value’ of science, math and technology as the ONLY solutions.)

A their part of the commons and ancient wisdom code is that people value culture. Culture consists in part of music, dance and art above all else.  In sustainable cultures, these things are held in high regard and valued above science and technology, because they hold the secrets and sacred mysteries.  There are multiple dimensions, not accessible to scientists, mathematicians and nuclearists within the arts.

When civilizations stray too far from the core commons and ancient mysterious wisdom contained and held within the 99% there is great danger. When the 1% take or are given too much power, too much control, too much money, the result will be disaster and ecological suicide on a global scale, because of the dis-ease of greed, which the American Indians pointed at when the ‘settlers’ came to claim and take what they felt ‘entitled’ to.

Will the modern day rainbow tribe learn and teach what it takes to live in harmony with Nature? Will there be an awakening of consciousness fast enough to save humanity and planet Earth? 
We are all part of the awakening, so keep resisting the urge to go back to sleep. Keep growing in awareness and consciousness, because that is really the only thing that offers any hope to humanity at this point.
“The longest road you will ever have to walk is the sacred journey from your head to your heart.”

Castle Bravo Hydrogen Bomb ‘Fission-Fusion-Fission’ Test

The video above is a pro nuclear military propaganda film.. The general talks a lot about expensive instruments and testing equipment, but fails to disclose most of them were destroyed and they did not get data out of them at all. According to this video, an unknown number of US military men working on the project received 3.8 Roentgens total exterior radiation dose. They did not do internal dose radiation monitoring, and this added to the above. 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



Castle Bravo
Castle Bravo was the code name given to the first United States test of a dry fuel, hydrogen bomb, detonated on March 1, 1954, at Bikini Atoll, Marshall Islands, as the first test of Operation Castle. Castle Bravo was the most powerful nuclear device ever detonated by the United States (and just under one-third the energy of the most powerful ever detonated), with a yield of 15megatons of TNT
That yield, far exceeding the expected yield of 4 to 8 megatons (6 Mt predicted),[1] combined with other factors, led to the most significant accidental radiological contamination ever caused by the United States.
Fallout from the detonation—intended to be a secret test—fell on residents ofRongelap and Utirik atolls and spread around the world. The islanders were not evacuated until three days later and suffered radiation sickness. They were returned to the islands three years later but were removed again when their island was found to be unsafe.[2]
The crew of the Japanese fishing vessel Daigo Fukuryū Maru (“Lucky Dragon No. 5”), was also contaminated by fallout, killing one crew member. The blast created an international reaction about atmospheric thermonuclear testing.[3]
Test location
The device was a very large cylinder weighing 23,500 pounds (10.7 t) and measuring 179.5 inches (4.56 m) in length and 53.9 inches (1.37 m) in width.[1] It was mounted in a “shot cab” on an artificial island built on a reef off Namu Island, in the Bikini Atoll. A sizable array of diagnostic instruments was trained on it, including high-speed cameras which were trained through an arc of mirror towers around the shot cab.
Coordinates for Bravo Crater are 11°41′50″N 165°16′19″E. The coordinates of the remains of the Castle Bravo causeway are11°42′6″N 165°17′7″E.
Bomb design
Shrimp
The Shrimp device in its shot cab.
Production history
Designer Ben Diven-project engineer[4]
Designed 24 February 1954 (GMT)
Number built 1
Specifications
Weight 10,659 kilograms (23,499 lb)
Length 455.93 centimeters (179.50 in)
Diameter 136.90 centimeters (53.90 in)
Filling 
Lithium-6 Deuteride
Blast yield 15 megatons of TNT (63 PJ)
The device detonated for the test was named “Shrimp” and was the same basic configuration as the experimental Ivy Mike device, except with a different type of fusion fuel. The Shrimp used lithium deuteride, which is solid at room temperature; Ivy Mike used cryogenic liquid deuterium, which required elaborate cooling equipment. Castle Bravo was the first test by the United States of a practical deliverable fusion bomb (hydrogen bomb). The successful test rendered the cryogenic design used by Ivy Mike and its derivative, the Mark 16 nuclear bomb, obsolete.
Inside the cylindrical case was a smaller cylinder of lithium deuteride fusion fuel (the secondary) with a fission atomic bomb (the primary) at one end, the latter employed to create the conditions needed to start the fusion reaction. 
Running down the center of the secondary, was a cylindrical rod of plutonium (the sparkplug), which was used to ignite the fusion reaction. Surrounding this assembly was a uraniumtamper. The space between the tamper and the case formed aradiation channel to conduct X-rays from the primary to the secondary. The function of the X-rays was to compress the secondary (see Teller-Ulam design), increasing the density and temperature of the deuterium to the level needed to sustain a thermonuclear reaction, and compress the sparkplug to supercriticalignition. (See nuclear weapon design.)
It was practically identical to the “Runt” device later detonated inCastle Romeo, but used partially enriched lithium in the fusion fuel. Natural lithium is a mixture of lithium-6 and lithium-7 isotopes (with 7.5% of the former). The enriched lithium used in Bravo was approximately 40% lithium-6. The primary was a standard RACER IV fusion-boosted atomic bomb.[1]
Detonation
The Castle Bravo mushroom cloud.
The detonation took place at 06:45 on March 1, 1954 local time (18:45 on February 28 GMT).[5]
When Bravo was detonated, it formed a fireball almost four and a half miles (roughly 7 km) across within a second. This fireball was visible on Kwajalein atoll over 250 miles (400 km) away. The explosion left a crater 6,500 feet (2,000 m) in diameter and 250 feet (76 m) in depth. 
The mushroom cloud reached a height of 47,000 feet (14,000 m) and a diameter of 7 miles (11 km) in about a minute; it then reached a height of 130,000 feet (40 km) and 62 miles (100 km) in diameter in less than 10 minutes and was expanding at more than 100 meters per second (360 km/h; 220 mph). 
As a result of the blast, the radioactive cloud contaminated more than seven thousand square miles of the surrounding Pacific Ocean including some of the surrounding small islands like Rongerik, Rongelap and Utirik.[6]

In terms of TNT tonnage equivalence, Castle Bravo was about 1,000 times more powerful than each of the atomic bombs which were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II. The largest nuclear explosion ever produced was a test conducted by the Soviet Union seven and a half years later, the 50 Mt Tsar Bomba. Castle Bravo is the fifth largest nuclear explosion in history, exceeded by the Soviet tests of Tsar Bomba at 50.6 Mt, Test 219 (24.2 Mt), and two other ~20 Mt Soviet tests in 1962 at Novaya Zemlya.
Cause of high yield
The yield of 15 megatons was three times the yield of 5 Mt predicted by its designers.[7][1] The cause of the higher yield was a theoretical error made by designers of the device at Los Alamos National Laboratory. They considered only the lithium-6 isotope in the lithium deuteride secondary to be reactive; the lithium-7 isotope, accounting for 60% of the lithium content, was assumed to be inert.[8]
It was expected that lithium-6 isotope would absorb a neutron from the fissioning plutonium and emit an alpha particle and tritiumin the process, of which the latter would then fuse with the deuterium and increase the yield in a predicted manner. Lithium-6 obeyed this assumption.
When the lithium-7 isotope is bombarded with energetic neutrons, it captures a neutron then decays yielding an alpha particle, a tritium nucleus, and the captured neutron. This means more tritium was produced than expected, and the extra tritium is fused with deuterium. In addition to tritium formation the extra neutron released from lithium-7 decay produced a larger neutron flux. This caused more fissioning of the uranium tamper and increased yield.
This resultant extra fuel (both lithium-6 and lithium-7) contributed greatly to the fusion reactions and neutron production and in this manner greatly increased the device’s explosive output. The test used lithium with a high percentage of lithium-7 only because lithium-6 was then scarce and expensive; the later Castle Union test used almost pure lithium-6. Had more lithium-6 been available, the usability of the common lithium-7 might not have been discovered.
Fallout
The Bravo fallout plume spread dangerous levels of radiation over an area over 100 miles (160 km) long, including inhabited islands. The contour lines show the cumulative radiation dose in roentgens(R) for the first 96 hours after the test.[9]
The fission reactions of the natural uranium tamper were quite dirty, producing a large amount of fallout. That, combined with the much-larger-than-expected yield and a major wind shift, produced some very serious consequences. In the de-classified film “Operation Castle”, task force commander Major General Percy Clarkson points to a diagram indicating that the wind shift was still in the range of “acceptable fallout”, although just barely.
The decision to fire the Bravo bomb under the prevailing winds was made by Dr. Alvin C. Graves, the Scientific Director of Operation Castle. Graves had total authority over firing the weapon, above that of the military Commander of Operation Castle. Graves had himself received an exposure of 400 röntgens, or 3.5 grays (Gy), in the 1946 Los Alamos accident in which his personal friend, Louis Slotin, died from radiation exposure. 
Graves appears in the widely available film of the earlier 1952 test “Ivy Mike”, which examines the last-minute fallout decisions. The narrator, Western actor Reed Hadley, is filmed aboard the control ship in that film, showing the final conference. Hadley points out that 20,000 people live in the potential area of the fallout. 
He asks the control panel scientist if the test can be aborted and is told “yes”, but it would ruin all their preparations in setting up timed measuring instruments in the race against the Russians. In Mike the fallout correctly landed north of the inhabited area but, in the 1954 Bravo test, there was a lot of wind shear, and the wind that was blowing north the day before the test steadily veered towards the east.
Radioactive fallout was spread eastward onto the inhabited Rongelap and Rongerik atolls, which were evacuated[10] 48 hours after the detonation.[11] Subsequently many Marshall Islands natives suffered from birth defects and received compensation from the U.S. federal government. A medical study, named Project 4.1, studied the effects of the fallout on the islanders.[11]

W=”danger zone” extended later. xF=position of the Lucky Dragonfishing boat. NE, EC, and SE are equatorial currents.
Although the atmospheric fallout plume drifted eastward, once fallout landed in the water it was carried in several directions by ocean currents, including northwest and southwest.[12]
A Japanese fishing boat, Daigo Fukuryu Maru (Lucky Dragon No.5), came in direct contact with the fallout, which caused many of the crew to grow ill; one died of a secondary infection. This resulted in an international uproar and reignited Japanese concerns about radiation, especially as Japanese citizens were once more adversely affected by U.S. nuclear weapons.[13] 
The (dishonest and deceptive) official U.S. line had been that the growth in the strength of atomic bombs was not accompanied by an equivalent growth in radiation released. Japanese scientists who had collected data from the fishing vessel disagreed with this. 
Sir Joseph Rotblat, working at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London, demonstrated that the contamination caused by the fallout from the test was far greater than that stated officially. Rotblat was able to deduce that the bomb had three stages and showed that the fission phase at the end of the explosion increased the amount of radioactivity a thousandfold. 
Rotblat’s paper was taken up by the media, and the outcry in Japan reached such a level that diplomatic relations became strained and the incident was even dubbed by some as “a second Hiroshima”.[14] 
Nevertheless, the Japanese and U.S. governments quickly reached a political settlement, with the transfer to Japan of a compensation of US $15,300,000,[15] with the surviving victims receiving about ¥ 2 million each ($5,550 in 1954, or about $48,200 in 2014)[16][unreliable source?] It was also agreed that the victims would not be given Hibakusha status.
The device’s firing crew were located on Enyu island, variously spelt as Eneu island as depicted here.
Unanticipated fallout and the radiation that is emitted by it also affected many of the vessels and personnel involved in the test, in some cases forcing them into bunkers for several hours.[17] In contrast to the crew of the Lucky Dragon No. 5, who did not appreciate the hazard and therefore did not take shelter in the hold of their ship, or refrain from licking the fallout dust,[18] the firing crew that triggered the explosion were able to safely shelter in their firing station when they noticed the wind was carrying the fallout in the unanticipated direction towards the island of Enyu on the Bikini Atoll where they were located, with the fire crew sheltering in place or “button[ing] up” until several hours had passed and the radiation levels outside had decayed to values safe enough to travel in.[17][19]
Sixteen crew members of the aircraft carrier USS Bairoko received beta burns and there was an increased cancer rate. Radioactive contamination also affected many of the testing facilities built on other islands of the Bikini atoll system.
The fallout spread traces of radioactive material as far as Australia, India and Japan, and even the United States and parts of Europe. Though organized as a secret test, Castle Bravo quickly became an international incident, prompting calls for a ban on the atmospheric testing of thermonuclear devices.[20]
In addition to the radiological accident, the unexpectedly high yield of the device severely damaged many of the permanent buildings on the control site island on the far side of the atoll. 

Little of the desired diagnostic data on the shot was collected; many instruments designed to transmit their data back before being destroyed by the blast were instead vaporized instantly, while most of the instruments that were expected to be recovered for data retrieval were destroyed by the blast.
The fallout also affected islanders who had previously inhabited the atoll, and who returned there some time after the tests. This was found to be due to the presence of radioactive caesium in locally grown coconut milk. Plants and trees absorb potassium as part of the normal biological process, but will also readily absorb cesium if present, being of the same group on the periodic table, and therefore very similar chemically.[21] 

Islanders consuming contaminated coconut milk were found to have abnormally high concentrations of cesium in their bodies and then had to be evacuated from the atoll a second time.
The American magazine Consumer Reports warned of the contamination of milk with strontium-90.[22]
Weapon history
The Soviet Union had previously used lithium deuteride in their Sloika design (known as the “Joe-4” in the U.S.), in 1953. It was not a true hydrogen bomb. Fusion provided only 15–20% of its yield, most coming from boosted fission reactions. Its yield was 400 kilotons, and it could not be infinitely scaled, as with a true thermonuclear device.
The Teller-Ulam-based Ivy Mike device had a much greater yield of 10.4 Mt, but most of this also came from fission: 77% of the total came from fast fission of its natural uranium tamper.
Castle Bravo had the greatest yield of any U.S. nuclear test, 15 Mt, though again, a substantial fraction came from fission. In the Teller-Ulam design, the fission and fusion stages were kept physically separate in a reflective cavity. The radiation from the exploding fission primary brought the fuel in the fusion secondary to critical density and pressure, setting off thermonuclear (fusion) chain-reactions, which in turn set off a tertiary fissioning of the bomb’s outer casing. Consequently this type of bomb is also known as a “fission-fusion-fission” device. The Soviet researchers, led by Andrei Sakharov, independently developed and tested their first Teller-Ulam device in 1955.

The Shrimp device design later evolved into the Mk-21 bomb, of which 275 units were produced, weighing 15,000 pounds (6,800 kg) and measuring 12.5 feet (3.8 m) long and 56 inches (1.4 m) in diameter. This 4 megaton bomb was produced until July 1956. In 1957, it was converted into the Mk-36 and entered into production again.”

Huge, Mysterious ‘Interstellar’ Objects That Appear To Be Machines Or Spacecraft


Channel rprocyon presents ‘Interstellar’ a short film by Jose Escamilla. Full recognition goes out to John Lenard Walson for discovering these objects, machines or entities, for developing the means to capture them and for having the integrity to get this important information out to the people. 


What appears to be very huge interstellar objects, machines or entities that also transform themselves, have been caught on camera far out in deep space. See for yourselves. Why are these not being reported on by the corporate media? 
Of course, it could all be faked, created by software and an enterprising mind bent on deceiving people. But that still leaves the question; is there other life out there, besides us? How many planets could there be out there like ours, that could potentially support life of some kind? It turns out that very recent astronomical observations have raised some very amazing and mind boggling results. 
It turns out that one in five stars or suns that we see out there, just in our galaxy, have planets revolving around them that have a set of conditions that are supportive for life. According to people who do nothing but study space, this means that we may have 2 BILLION to 60 BILLION planets just in our galaxy that may support or actually have life of some kind on them. 
Two billion planets in our galaxy may be suitable for life
Billions Of Planets Could Support Life
60 Billion Alien Planets Could Support Life, Study Suggests
Remember, the studies above are focusing just on the possibility of life in our one galaxy. Our galaxy is just one of many. How many galaxies are there besides ours? Would you believe that there are 500 BILLION galaxies out there, visible to a space telescope?
“The Hubble Space Telescope site estimates there are hundreds of billions of galaxies in the universe. A recent German super-computer simulation estimates that the number may be as high as 500 billion, with many older than the Milky Way. Common obervational wisdom among astronomers is that there are 17 billion Earth-sized planets in our galaxy. They don’t yet know how many of these worlds are in habitable zones, but the implications of this discovery are astounding. Simply put: If there are 17 billion Earth-sized worlds in our galaxy alone, it’s clear that the Universe has the potential to be teeming with life.”
What is the take away from this video and these space studies? The odds that other life forms exist (other than human) out there are HUGE. What does that life look like? Would be able to recognize those life forms if they appeared?
Since some of these planets and suns are much older than ours, life could be much further along than what has evolved or happened so far on planet Earth. If there are other more advanced ‘races’, beings or forms of life, what would they look like? Could they be much bigger, much smaller, have entirely different make ups, such as being based on silicone, or sulfur? Could they be nano sized, making them impossible to see without scientific equipment, but have entire civilizations on the head of a pin for example? Could they be so huge, that we would not see them, because we would mistake them for something else?
Could life have evolved in completely different directions and taken them into different dimensions, not visible to the naked eye, such as flying interdimensional beings, rods, cones, pyramids, or beings based on things we cannot even wrap our minds around, such as those in this video? Life indeed may be much more mysterious, abundant and vibrant than we have been led to believe. 
And if life is indeed much more mysterious, abundant and diverse than we have believed historically, how will that change us, our religions, our belief systems? Remember that at one point in history, scientists, philosophers and religious scholars all were in agreement that the sun revolved around the Earth, that the Earth was flat and that you would fall off the edge if you went ‘too far out in the ocean’.

Fully unsustainable. Fully.  Thanks to @[107279015969787:274:1,000,000 Strong Against Offshore Drilling] for the image.
Stay open to the mystery, because we may not know as much as we think we do. Maybe it would pay to work in harmony with the forces of Nature and the universe. Maybe it would benefit us, our planet and our civilization to work on preserving and enhancing life for seven future generations.
Instead of trying to destroy it all due to greed and short sighted power motives, as we are now, maybe we can look to the stars and plan on a future that will support life not only on this planet for millions of years into the future, but also traveling to those other planets, carrying with us a message of sustainability and agape love.

Dow Chemicals; Destroying The World, And Poisoning Our Food

Center for Food Safety has just launched a new national campaign focusing the food movement’s growing power on stopping the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) approval of the next generation of genetically engineered (GE), pesticide-promoting crops: corn and soybeans engineered to be repeatedly doused in 2,4-D, a powerful herbicide that formed one half of Agent Orange

The campaign features a petition to the USDA and President Obama to reject Dow Chemical’s new GE crops, a campaign website and an animated video examining Dow Chemical’s sordid history.

Why Dow Chemical? Dow Chemical has a long and troubling history of selling dangerous chemicals and poisons, and now they are targeting our food supply. We are launching this campaign to give people the chance to fight back, to speak with one voice and stop Dow Chemical’s “Agent Orange” crops.

2,4-D (2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid), produced by Dow Chemical, was a component of Agent Orange, the toxic defoliant used in Vietnam. 2,4-D and other herbicides of its class have been independently associated with deadly immune system cancers, Parkinson’s disease, endocrine disruption, and reproductive problems.

Dow Chemical’s crops are the worst possible application of biotechnology.They offer zero consumer benefit while doubling down on the most devastating aspects of industrial agriculture. Instead of feeding the world, Dow Chemical’s new genetically engineered crops will poison it. Unless we stop them.Check out our new animated video and campaign website, and join the campaign!

Plutonium Is The Most Toxic, Radioactive, Man Made Element, With No Natural Biological Role In The Human Body

What is plutonium? According to the nuclear expert above, plutonium is the most TOXIC and dangerous element on the planet. But is there any OTHER proof of that, because he might just have a chip on his shoulder, right?

“If you inhale a millionth of a gram of plutonium, the surrounding cells receive a very, very high dose. Most die within that area, because it’s an alpha emitter. The cells on the periphery remain viable. They mutate, and the regulatory genes are damaged. Years later, that person develops cancer. Now, that’s true for radioactive iodine, that goes to the thyroid; cesium-137, that goes to the brain and muscles; strontium-90 goes to bone, causing bone cancer and leukemia.”

Renowned doctor and scientist Dr. Helen Caldicott MD

According to a National Institutes Of Health published study; “Plutonium is a toxic synthetic element with no natural biological function, but it is strongly retained by humans when ingested. Using small angle X-ray scattering, receptor binding assays, and synchrotron X-ray fluorescence microscopy we find that rat adrenal gland (PC12) cells can acquire plutonium in vitro through the major iron acquisition pathway, receptor-mediated endocytosis of the iron transport protein serum transferrin;…

Organisms have no natural mechanism for specifically recognizing plutonium (Pu) as it is a non-essential element that until 1941 only existed on earth in biologically insignificant concentrations for at least the last two billion years. Nevertheless, Pu is radiotoxic and is strongly retained by organisms1, Pu uptake from an accident, environmental contamination, or a nuclear or radiological attack can pose significant health risks. Plutonium localizes principally in the liver and skeleton in humans where it remains for decades2. It associates in vivo with the iron-containing proteins serum transferrin and ferritin3,4, but despite the danger of plutonium poisoning, the specific molecular-level pathways Pu travels to enter and localize in cells have never been identified2,5 and no complete structure of a plutonium-protein complex has ever been reported. Understanding how a synthetic element like plutonium subverts existing biological metal-acquisition pathways to enter cells and where the pathways of plutonium and essential metals, such as iron, converge or diverge could provide important insights into the molecular mechanisms organisms use to distinguish between metal ions and enable new treatments for plutonium poisoning.


Plutonium’s chemistry bears limited resemblance to that of biologically important transition metals. Plutonium is highly redox active with four oxidation states (III, IV, V, and VI) potentially relevant to living organisms, although Pu(IV) has long been considered the most important under physiological conditions6. Regardless of oxidation state, Pu ions are hard Lewis acids that generally form kinetically labile bonds with ligands7. They are also large ions (crystallographic radii = 0.85 – 1.14 Å for CN = 68, depending on the oxidation state) that prefer high coordination numbers; plutonium complexes with coordination numbers of 8 or 9 are common9.


While these properties set Pu apart from transition metals commonly encountered in the metallome, Pu and transition metals do share important similarities. Similar to high-valent transition metals, tetravalent Pu is strongly hydrolyzed at physiological pH10. In the absence of steric constraints, Pu4+ tends to form complexes that are about as stable as those of trivalent first row transition metals, notably Fe3+, because the metals’ charge to radius ratios are similar1,11. These properties give plutonium a chemistry that partly resembles transition metals, especially iron. The chemical similarities of Fe and Pu are particularly important to the metal transport protein serum transferrin (Tf). Transferrin functions to strongly bind and carry two Fe3+ ions into cells, but it also binds Pu4+strongly12 with a reported conditional pKd = 21.25± 0.7513, and it accounts for 70–90 % of the Pu in serum3,13.

Diferric transferrin (holo-transferrin, Fe2Tf) delivers iron to mammalian cells through receptor-mediated endocytosis in a multi-step process. Transferrin is a bilobal glycoprotein. Each lobe of Tf, the C-lobe and N-lobe, is composed of two domains with one iron binding site located at the bottom of the inter-domain cleft in each lobe. When an appropriate metal ion and a synergistic anion (i.e., CO32−) are both present in one binding site, the domains close around the binding site, sequestering the metal and binding it tightly (Kd = 10−21.4 M for Fe3+)14. When both lobes of Tf are thus properly closed, the metal-transferrin complex is in the proper conformation to be recognized by the transferrin receptor protein (TR) on the cellular surface. At the extracellular pH of 7.4, TR binds Fe2Tf strongly (Kd = 5 nM)15. Other forms of transferrin, metal-free apo-transferrin and the monoferric transferrins FeNTf and FeCTf (with the metal-containing lobe indicated by the subscript N or C), are not in the proper conformation to be well-recognized by TR because one or both of the lobes remain open in the absence of a metal cation16. As a result, the receptor binding constants of apo-Tf, FeNTf, and FeCTf are at least an order of magnitude smaller than that of Fe2Tf-TR15.
While some have suggested that transferrin may carry Pu into cells17, extensive in vitro experiments have been taken to imply that plutonium-transferrin complexes are not taken into cells in a manner similar to the iron-transferrin complex2,1820, presumably because Pu4+ is a larger ion than Fe3+and strongly prefers higher coordination numbers. Instead, an ill-defined uptake pathway, which does not involve transferrin, has been invoked as the source of intracellular Pu18,20.
Studying the conformations and biochemical interactions of plutonium-transferrin complexes using a low specific activity plutonium isotope (242Pu) to minimize radiation effects, we found that mammalian cells could acquire Pu through the common Fe uptake pathway of receptor-mediated endocytosis of metallo-transferrins. However, to be taken into the cell by receptor-mediated endocytosis, Pu needed help from Fe because only one isomer of the monoplutonium-monoiron-transferrin complex was active. In the active form of the plutonium-laden protein, Pu4+ was bound in the metal binding site of the protein’s C-terminal lobe and Fe3+ was bound in the protein’s N-lobe (PuCFeNTf). All other forms of plutonium-transferrin that could exist in vivo failed to adopt the proper conformation for receptor recognition and uptake. Although the metal binding site in each lobe contains the same donors in the same configuration and both lobes are similar14,21, the differences between transferrin’s two lobes restricted, but did not eliminate, cellular Pu uptake.
Receptor binding of plutonium-transferrins
To understand how cells take up plutonium and if the cellular uptake mechanisms of Fe3+ and Pu4+diverge, we systematically examined the binding of Pu-Tf complexes to the transferrin receptor protein, which is a prerequisite for cellular uptake of a metallo-transferrin. Receptor binding assays of plutonium-bearing human transferrins were conducted using the soluble extracellular fragment of human transferrin receptor 1 isolated from serum22, which retains its capacity to bind Fe2Tf23. The binding of the controls apo-Tf and Fe2Tf (Fig. 1) were as expected from the previously reported binding constants15,24. The two Fe3+ cations in diferric transferrin were then systematically replaced with Pu4+, individually producing the mixed monoplutonium-monoiron-transferrin complexes PuCFeNTf and FeCPuNTf, and the diplutonium-transferrin complex Pu2Tf (i.e., PuCPuNTf), which were incubated with the transferrin receptor. The receptor binding assays of the three plutonium-transferrins (Fig. 1) indicated that each of these metallo-transferrins could bind soluble TR under our experimental conditions. However, the different forms of Pu-Tf showed different receptor binding behaviors. The affinity of TR for Pu2Tf and FeCPuNTf, was substantially lower than for PuCFeNTf and Fe2Tf, suggesting that although Pu4+ binds to Tf in the Fe3+ binding site13, neither Pu2Tf nor FeCPuNTf would be recognized at physiological concentrations. In contrast, PuCFeNTf should be recognized by TR.
PuCFeNTf is the only Pu-transferrin that binds TR well
Solution conformations of plutonium-transferrins
One form of plutonium-transferrin, PuCFeNTf, bound the transferrin receptor well but the two other forms, FeCPuNTf and Pu2Tf, did not. Because the transferrin receptor only binds transferrin well if both the protein’s lobes are in the closed conformation, we examined a series of metallo-transferrins using small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) to obtain low resolution solution models of the bovine proteins. The scattering profiles of the transferrins (see Supplementary Results and Supplementary Fig. S1a online) fell into three distinct groups. Based on the scattering of the natural transferrins, we assigned these groups of scattering curves to transferrin with both lobes open, one lobe open and one lobe closed, or both lobes closed, which we term open, mixed, and closed transferrins, respectively. The scattering profiles of the closed transferrins (i.e., Fe2Tf, PuCFeNTf, and In2Tf, di-indium transferrin) were qualitatively distinguished from the other curves by a distinct drop in scattering intensity between 0.15 and 0.20 Å−1 (Supplementary Fig. S1b)25.
The differences between the protein conformations indicated by the scattering were clarified by ab initio shape reconstruction of low-resolution protein models from the SAXS by simulated annealing of dummy atom (bead) models26. The resulting three-dimensional solution structures of the proteins calculated from the scattering data agree well with the reported crystal structures of serum transferrin27,28 (Fig. 2a and Supplementary Fig. S2). As depicted in Figure 2, the two lobes of each metallo-transferrin are clearly visible at the top and bottom of each model, as was the open or closed conformation of each lobe. Most importantly, the structures of PuCFeNTf and closed Fe2Tf, which both bound TR well, were very similar (Figs. 2a and 2b), and both had two closed lobes. In contrast, the conformations of the other plutonium-bearing transferrins, FeCPuNTf and Pu2Tf, were clearly mixed. Those models (Figs. 2a and 2b) showed one smaller closed lobe at the bottom of the displayed structural model and one open lobe at the top with a cleft between the lobe’s two domains, just as observed for mixed FeCTf.
Structural models of bovine serum transferrins derived from SAXS demonstrate that PuCFeNTf adopts a closed conformation
Although the resolution of these measurements did not allow direct identification of the C- and N-lobes of each metallo-transferrin from the SAXS data, the systematic substitution of Pu4+ into Tf allowed identification of the one open lobe observed for FeCPuNTf and Pu2Tf. Fe3+ binding causes lobe closure under the conditions of our experiments. Consequently, the iron-containing C-lobe of FeCPuNTf was closed and the plutonium-containing N-lobe must be the open lobe observed for this form of the protein. This implied that the N-lobe of Pu2Tf also was open. In fact, the conformation and overall dimensions of the open lobe determined for the mixed transferrins (FeCTf, FeCPuNTf, and Pu2Tf) from the SAXS data matched the crystal structure of the open N-terminal half apo-transferrin fragment29 well, as depicted for Pu2Tf in Fig. 2a.
The conformation of Pu2Tf indicated that transferrin’s two iron-binding sites respond to Pu4+differently. The N-lobe of Pu2Tf was open; therefore the second plutonium cation in the C-lobe must promote C-lobe closure because the SAXS data indicated that one lobe of Pu2Tf was closed (Fig. 2a). Since Pu4+ in the C-lobe and Fe3+ in either lobe caused lobe closure, both lobes of PuCFeNTf were expected to be closed. The structural reconstruction of PuCFeNTf confirmed this (Figs. 2a and 2b). Although Pu2Tf and FeCPuNTf adopted the mixed conformation with one open and one closed lobe, solutions of PuCFeNTf contained the protein in a fully closed configuration that matched the native form of the protein found for Fe2Tf. The slight deviations observed between the structures of Fe2Tf and PuCFeNTf (Fig. 2c) were within the uncertainty of the experiment and analysis, and principally arose from the slightly different maximum protein diameters derived from the SAXS data used for the shape reconstruction (Dmax = 104 ± 10 Å for PuCFeNTf vs. 100 ± 10 Å for Fe2Tf, seeSupplementary Table S1).
Cellular uptake of plutonium-transferrins
Plutonium’s inability to induce closure of transferrin’s N-lobe explained the receptor binding experiments and implied that under physiological conditions only PuCFeNTf, the sole closed plutonium-transferrin complex, could be recognized by TR and incorporated into cells through receptor-mediated endocytosis. To test this hypothesis, we incubated PC12 cells for 3 hours in complete growth medium supplemented with rat transferrin presented as either closed PuCFeNTf, which should be recognized and carry Pu into cells, or mixed FeCPuNTf, which should not. The elemental content and distribution in individual cells was monitored with synchrotron X-ray fluorescence microscopy (SXFM) (Fig. 3a–e, Supplementary Figs. S3 and S4, and Supplementary Table S2). As expected from the protein conformations and receptor binding experiments, Pu presented as closed PuCFeNTf was taken into the cells (Figs. 3b and 3e), and localized in the cytoplasm (Supplementary Figs. S3d–f). The average intracellular content of the Pu containing cells was 1.6 ± 0.3 ng Pu/cm2 (±S.E.M at 95% confidence, n = 8). In contrast, the average cellular uptake of Pu from mixed FeCPuNTf was sharply reduced to only 0.3 ± 0.2 ng Pu/cm2 (±S.E.M at 95% confidence, n = 21), as illustrated in Figures 3c and 3e.
PC12 cells take in plutonium as PuCFeNTf
To ensure that the cells remained viable over the course of treatment at the concentrations of 242Pu used, cell viability was quantified by trypan blue exclusion in separate experiments prior to the SXFM measurements. Individual determinations of the viability of cells grown in media supplemented with the highest concentrations of Pu, chloroquine (vide infra), or Pu and chloroquine ranged from 86 to 105% of control cells with a run to run range of ±10% for each measurement of control or treated cells. The average cell viabilities (Supplementary Table S3) were indistinguishable from those of PC12 control samples for the first 3 hours of incubation.
The initial plutonium-transferrin uptake experiments were consistent with receptor-mediated endocytosis of PuCFeNTf, just like Fe2Tf. To further explore this possibility, the cellular uptake of Pu from closed PuCFeNTf was studied under conditions that would reduce Pu uptake by that pathway. First, Pu uptake from complete media supplemented with an equimolar mixture of PuCFeNTf and Fe2Tf was examined. While PC12 cells still took in Pu from this medium, the average intracellular concentration of Pu (Fig. 3e) decreased to 39 ± 15% of the value observed for cells incubated with PuCFeNTf alone (error propagated ±S.E.M., 4 Fe2Tf co-treated cells studied). This was in reasonable agreement with the value expected for simple competition between equal concentrations of PuCFeNTf and Fe2Tf (50%) if the all aspects of the uptake and retention of Pu and Fe are equivalent and the presence of 12.5 μM Fe2Tf does not down regulate transferrin-mediated uptake over the time frame of our experiment.
Transferrin endocytosis also is temperature dependent 30. No difference was discernable between the uptake of PuCFeNTf at 25 °C (1.5 ± 0.5 ng Pu/cm2, ±S.E.M. at 95% confidence, n = 3 cells)and 37 °C (1.8 ± 0.4 ng Pu/cm2, ±S.E.M. at 95% confidence, n = 5 cells), presumably because of normal cell-to-cell variations in the elemental content and the small sample size. However, lowering the incubation temperature to 4 °C curtailed Pu uptake as expected for active uptake of PuCFeNTf by endocytosis. Bulk Pu uptake at 4 °C was 17 ± 17% of the uptake of cells incubated at 37 °C (n = 3, error propagated ±S.E.M. at 95% confidence).
To further study Pu uptake from closed PuCFeNTf, PC12 cells also were incubated for 3 hours in complete media supplemented with rat PuCFeNTf (12.5 – 25 μM) and chloroquine (50 μM), which is known to disrupt the uptake of iron through receptor-mediated endocytosis of Fe2Tf. It does so by preventing complete acidification of the endosomes thereby inhibiting iron release from the Fe2Tf-TR complex into the endosomes30. In these experiments, chloroquine treatment severely reduced Pu uptake from PuCFeNTf by intact cells (Fig. 3e) to an average of 0.2 ± 0.3 ng Pu/cm2 (±S.E.M at 95% confidence, 8 cells studied). While very little Pu was associated with intact chloroquine-treated cells, measurable Pu was found in the SXFM maps associated with cellular debris (Fig. 3d) in the chloroquine treated system. This implied that chloroquine inhibited Pu uptake by living cells, but it did not inhibit Pu binding to the intracellular constituents from ruptured cells. Thus, a drug that disrupts Fe release from Fe2Tf into the endosomes also disrupted the active uptake of Pu from PuCFeNTf by living cells.
The lack of plutonium uptake from mixed FeCPuNTf, coupled with the proportional reduction in Pu uptake from mixtures of Fe2Tf and PuCFeNTf and the ability of low temperatures or the presence of chloroquine to inhibit plutonium uptake from closed PuCFeNTf demonstrated that PuCFeNTf, which has the same closed conformation as Fe2Tf, followed Fe2Tf into the cells through receptor-mediated endocytosis and was not taken up through non-specific pinocytosis.
Our studies each indicated that plutonium could infiltrate mammalian cells using the normal Tf-TR iron uptake system, but only with help from iron and only for one particular isomer of the plutonium-iron-transferrin complex, PuCFeNTf…. Other pathways for plutonium uptake that do not involve transferrin likely exist, as is known for iron31, but our results demonstrated that PuCFeNTf was capable of efficiently delivering Pu to mammalian cells in vitrothrough receptor-mediated endocytosis.
The specific requirement for iron binding in the N-lobe of transferrin restricted plutonium’s ability to exploit the transferrin-mediated uptake pathway; however PuCFeNTf likely would constitute a substantial portion of the Pu-Tf species in the blood of exposed individuals. In circulating human blood transferrin concentrations normally range between 25 and 46 μM32. Iron usually consumes only a fraction of transferrin’s iron-binding capacity, leaving ample capacity for transferrin to bind plutonium and giving rise to a distribution of different transferrin species. For normal blood iron loadings, an average distribution of transferrin species of 37% apo-Tf, 45% FeNTf, 8% FeCTf, and 11% Fe2Tf in human serum has been reported33. The precursors to PuCFeNTf, FeNTf and apo-Tf (which can react to form PuCTf), constitute the major fraction of the transferrin in human serum. Thus the inability of plutonium to trigger N-lobe closure in serum transferrin is not sufficient to prohibit Pu uptake through the Tf-TR pathway in vivo where iron is available to fill the N-lobe.
Several possible advantages of modern bilobal transferrins over their single-lobed progenitors have been proposed. As a partial iron mimic, the interactions between plutonium and transferrin suggest another, enhanced selectivity for iron. By itself, transferrin does not effectively discriminate against the man-made element plutonium, binding Pu4+ almost as strongly as Fe3+ 13, but the bilobal nature of transferrin and the differences between the lobes confer a measure of selectivity against plutonium to the Tf-TR uptake system. Contrary to predictions34,35, Pu4+ and Fe3+ are sufficiently different that plutonium binding did not trigger closure of the N-lobe. Therefore, neither Pu2Tf nor FeCPuNTf were efficiently recognized by the transferrin receptor, and cellular uptake of Pu was diminished. Plutonium could overcome the selectivity of the multi-step metal recognition system of the Tf-TR pair only with the assistance of Fe through the formation of PuCFeNTf, which efficiently bound TR.
The Tf-TR iron uptake system achieves its partial selectivity for iron over plutonium in spite of the similarity of the C- and N-lobes, which show high sequence similarity (40–50% for serum transferrins)36. The residues involved in metal binding are completely conserved between the two lobes and also are conserved in the closely related proteins lactoferrin (Lf) and ovotransferrin14. Since the identity and the configuration of the binding resides are the same in both lobes of serum transferrin, the partial discrimination of the Tf-TR system against Pu could not arise from plutonium’s presumed direct interactions with the binding residues (2 Tyr, 1 Asp, 1 His) in the metal binding sites. Moreover, when lactoferrin binds Ce4+, another tetravalent f-element cation with the same size and coordination preferences as Pu4+, the crystal structure of diceric lactoferrin (Ce2Lf) shows that the coordination environment of Ce4+ matches that of Fe3+ in Fe2Lf and that both the C-lobe and the N-lobe are closed35. Consequently, the different responses of transferrin’s two lobes to Pu binding and the ability of the Tf-TR uptake system’s ability to attenuate Pu uptake appear to arise from one or more known structural differences between the lobes28,37 outside of the actual metal binding sites.
The protein conformations we observed for the plutonium-iron-transferrin complexes also suggest that mixed-metal transferrin complexes may play an important role in the metallome by allowing an unsuspected trafficking pathway for naturally occurring metals. Transferrin is known to bind over 30 different metals, but the cellular uptake of the metal-transferrin complexes is believed relevant for a only a few of them14. Since transferrin’s two lobes can react differently to binding the same metal ion, the uptake of mixed iron-metal-transferrin complexes (MCFeNTf or FeCMNTf) in vivo may represent substantial uptake pathways for other metals as well if metal binding induces closure of one lobe but not the other. The relevance of mixed-metal transferrins would not be apparent from studies of the receptor-binding or cellular uptake of simple M2Tf complexes as one lobe of M2Tf would be open and the complex would not be recognized by TR.
The intracellular pathways plutonium follows between its putative release from Tf in the endosomes and its retention in the cytoplasm have yet to be identified, but our demonstration that a specific form of plutonium-transferrin entered mammalian cells using the normal Fe2Tf-TR pathway is of practical significance because this well-defined pathway presents multiple targets to block plutonium uptake and spare cells from its highly destructive α-radiation. Currently approved therapies for plutonium poisoning, based on ligands that strongly bind Pu, are unable to extract all intracellular Pu1,38,39. In contrast, novel strategies to disrupt the PuCFeNTf-TR pathway could preempt plutonium accumulation in cells. Such strategies might include blocking the binding of PuCFeNTf to TR, or inhibiting the intracellular release of Pu in the endosome (mimicking the action of chloroquine in our experiments), which would keep Pu from accumulating in cells and could promote faster clearance from the body, particularly if used in conjunction with plutonium-specific chelators.

————————————————————————-

What is the take away and summary? Plutonium is the most toxic heavy metal, and the most dangerous radioactive man made element that is absorbed both by animals and human beings after any nuclear accident, since all nuclear reactors contain some plutonium.

MOX (plutonium) fueled reactors or breeder reactors contain even more plutonium than just plain old uranium fueled nuclear reactors. The bad news is that all reactors are being switched over to run on plutonium.

There is no known beneficial use for human health in regards to plutonium. It is one of the most toxic heavy metals and one of the most dangerous radioactive substances on Earth, precisely because humans have never been exposed to it, and thus have no defenses against it. 

According to Dr. Helen Caldicott MD, one pound of plutonium nano dust distributed equally to all humans on Earth is enough to kill them all, via cancer or other negative health effects. One microgram of plutonium is sufficient to kill a person, if lodged in the deepest lobe area of the lung for example, and that amount is smaller than a dust mote in a sunbeam. Fukushima Daichi released between 600 – 6000 pounds of plutonium, and it went all around the world in the form of nano ‘hot particles’. Remember though, it was not just plutonium that came out of Fukushima and all of the other accidents and 2,400 atomic bomb tests.

The study presented in this article documents how plutonium mimics iron in the body and attaches to iron to circulate all around the body, causing damage both via alpha radiation and via heavy metal poisoning. 


Since iron accumulates with red blood cells in very vital areas of the body such as the lungs, liver and bone marrow, this sets up a person for diseases and cancers involving not just these areas, but also any place where red blood cells containing iron go.

Live in San Francisco? You, Your dog, And Your Kids Inhaled Billions Of Radioactive Plutonium Atoms



The title of the video above: Live in San Francisco? You (and your dog) Inhaled 75 MILLION Plutonium Atoms In Just 4 days


People, kids (and dogs) living in San Francisco inhaled 75 million plutonium atoms or ‘hot’ particles in just 4 days, according to PorterBlog analysis of EPA data. This data is VERY conservative, and is based on a 1 second inhalation/exhalation with no particles sticking in the lungs, which is not realistic, and is discounted by a huge factor. No one breathes in and out in just one second.


Remember that these dozens of different types of invisible radioactive gases and particles came out of Fukushima for MONTHS, not just 4 days. Need proof? 

“1,500 atoms of sulfur-35 per cubic meter of air” were found in La Jolla which was “a significant increase over normal levels.”

Lawrence Berkeley Labs found 132.4 Bq/kg in samples taken in Berkeley, California. There is no doubt that California got hammered by Fukushima radiation.

Wouldn’t you agree that one can safely multiply these figures by 2 for a one week period, (150 Million) then again by 4 for one month, (600,000,000 atoms) then again by 2 or 3 for the several months (1,800,000,000) because Fukushima was on fire, exploding, leaking and steaming with large amounts of radiation for months after 3/11, not just for 4 days? As a matter of fact, Fukushima is still spewing hot particles today, and unit #3 is still steaming radioactivity into the air on an almost daily basis even today. Fukushima Daichi is still out of control and highly radioactive water is still being dumped or leaked into the ocean at a rate of 400 or more tons per day.

Remember also, that this analysis is only counting ONE radioactive element, and there were many more. Now you can multiply the above by the number of different radioactive elements. Let’s say we multiply this one element by at least a very conservative 1,000, to count for a portion of the 1,946 radioactive elements that are documented to come out of nuclear accidents? Read about just one other radioactive element; namely Xenon, via the link below.

What effect will this inhaled, uncountable numbers of airborne atoms of plutonium, sulfure, iodine, strontium, uranium, xenon and 1,940 other toxic, radioactive elements that came out of Fukushima have on you, your children, and your grandchildren, and your pets? 


“Donald Geesaman, has made an extensive analysis of the scientific data related to the hazard of these highly radioactive particles. His analysis pointed up a very sobering fact: The experimental data indicated that when small portions of tissue are exposed to extremely high dosages of radiation, cancer is an almost inevitable result. In other words, irradiation by plutonium oxide particles appears to represent a unique carcinogenic hazard. Somewhere between a few and a few hundred such particles would be enough to double an individual’s chance of developing fatal lung cancer. An ounce of plutonium can form 10 trillion such particles.” http://nepis.epa.gov/Exe/ZyPURL.cgi?Dockey=20005KSD.TXT
Time will tell, but the negative effects of low dose radiation from Fukushima seem to be showing up in our wild ocean companions on this planet, via die offs of star fish, herring, seals, larger fish, birds, and sickened sore covered hair losing polar bears, seals and walruses. Is it possible humans can be exposed to all of these and have zero effects?

Plutonium-238 From Fukushima Traveled Around The World – ‘Misleading’ Experts Said It Would Stay Close By, Or Did Not Happen; via @AGreenRoad

Add this up; we are now up to 1,800,000,000 (1.8 billion) plutonium atoms multiplied by 1,000 = one trillion, eight hundred billion radioactive element atoms were breathed in by an average child, pet and adult in San Francisco and quite possibly by everyone in the USA. The next step is converting this to some kind of recognizable figure. As we can see below, for a healthy adult, what was breathed in through our very rough calculations may not be lethal.. 

by Anonymous on Sun, 2012-06-17 
“1 microgram of PU-239 = (2360 Bq) = 46 micron diameter sphere = 2,518 Trillion atoms of PU-239. The range of a 5.8 MeV alpha particle in water is 50 microns. So every cell from the surface of the Pu-239 sphere out to 50 microns is going to be killed pretty much instantly by the alphas. The cells outside of that range are shielded from the alphas and don’t receive any dose from them. Interestingly enough if you dissolve that amount of Pu-239 and evenly disperse it throughout the body then you would deposit 5.8MeV * 2360 * 60 * 60 * 24 *365 = 43e9 MeV/year = 0.0068 Joules/year. Assume a 100 kg person and include the factor of 20 because alphas are more damaging and you get 1.3 mSv/year. The same amount of Plutonium is more dangerous when it’s clumped together into “hot particles” than when it’s dispersed as a gas. Bottom line….if you tell me there’s plutonium “fuel fleas” in the air I will run screaming for the hills.”
Bottom line, the opinion of most posters in the Berkeley forum  is that 3,500 tons of plutonium have already been ‘distributed’ across the world thanks to the atomic age and open air nuclear bomb testing. In their opinion, since no one is being affected, so how can another 600 – 6,000 pounds of plutonium that was delivered from Fukushima kill or harm anyone? They claim Dr. Helen Caldicott MD is lying about 1 microgram of plutonium being a lethal dose for a human being. 
So the cancer death rate of 1 out of 3 people is not proof of the damage caused by all of the 2,400 open air nuclear bomb tests?

According to a study published by the National Insitute of Health; “Plutonium is a toxic synthetic element with no natural biological function, but it is strongly retained by humans when ingested (or inhaled). For more information about this, click on the following link.

The regulations below seem to show the opposite of what these Berkeley folks seem to believe.

Via CCNR.org;
“Subject: Quantity of Plutonium that an Atomic Radiation Worker
and the Public may Inhale to Reach their Respective Limits

Dear Ms. Ostling:

The Atomic Energy Control Board (AECB) does not set maximum permissible quantities of radionuclides for workers or the public. Regulatory protection criteria are expressed in terms of effective dose limits.

In this context, we understand your question to mean: “What is the quantity of plutonium oxide, if inhaled, would give rise to an effective dose of 50 mSv [ millisieverts ] to a worker or 5 mSv to a member of the public?”

As the result of an intake, these doses will be received over 50 years by a worker and over a period ending at age 70 by a member of the public. These calculations have been made for insoluble (in lung fluid) plutonium oxide of 1 micrometer size. These assumptions are very conservative (restrictive); in other words the worst case scenario has been assumed.

workers:
1.4 micrograms for 50 mSv committed effective dose
(over 50 years after intake)
public:
0.1 microgram for 5 mSv committed effective dose
(up to age 70)”

The link below talks about the legal limits and ‘overdose’ of plutonium when applied to human beings.
http://www.ccnr.org/max_plute_aecb.html 

The numbers presented in the video are more than likely very conservative, because the EPA radiation detection network was turned off in the worst hit radiation areas, at the very times and days when the worst of the radiation plume was coming over them. 


What is the take away? Massive amounts of plutonium and other radioactive elements were released from Fukushima. Everyone in the northern hemisphere breathed at least some of these things in; plutonium, strontium, iodine, uranium, etc… 


Here are some medical and scientific studies that provide a faint idea of what plutonium and other radioactive elements such as iodine may be doing both to dogs and kids. The Berkeley folks seem to think plutonium can be eaten and breathed in at much larger doses than 1 microgram, with no problems at all, ever. Do you agree with the pro nuclear scientists, or with the medical doctors that say radiation is dangerous even at very low doses?

You get to decide (and will experience) what effect the Fukushima mega disaster will have on your family, because there are EXTREME and widely differing opinions about this subject, as you can see. The pro nuclear folks seem to think that radioactive elements are all as harmless as drinking water even if they are inhaled or ingested. One scientist even offered to eat 30 grams of plutonium, because it was so ‘safe’. 

Meanwhile, the medical professionals and some scientists, seem to think that plutonium is extremely hazardous, and that 1 microgram will have a good chance of killing a person, long term, if inhaled. What do you think?

EPA Covered Up And Hid Fukushima Radiation Plume Hitting USA


The EPA restricted and/or deleted the beta radiation readings, right after Fukushima happened.


BREAKING NEWS: This is an email from the EPA to air quality districts that were supposed to monitor air for radiation fallout in 2011 from Fukushima. This was obtained with a Freedom of Information Act request by University of California Santa Cruz lecturer Dan Hirsch who has been a radiation expert for over 40 years. The highlighted sentence says, “EPA HQ has decided at this time to not deploy the deployable RADNET monitors to CA, OR and WA.” 

EPA Mobile Environmental Radiation Laboratories (MERLs) Can Detect Radiation In Air, On Beaches, Animals, In Food; via @AGreenRoad
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2013/12/epa-mobile-environmental-radiation.html

So at the height of the emergency the central coast, the very spot where the radioactive plume was supposed to hit, the EPA had no working monitors for the air quality in Monterey, Santa Cruz, San Luis Obispo or Santa Barbara counties. Why? HERE’S THE THING: Typically when it comes to environmental disasters, the EPA is supposed to take the lead role in reporting environmental disasters to the public. What happened in this case?
But in the case of Fukushima, in March and April 2011, at the height of the Fukushima emergency, the pro-nuclear Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and the pro-nuclear Department of Energy (DOE) stepped in and told the EPA; we’ll take things from here. Why was that?? That needs to be investigated. Why was the role of the EPA usurped like that?  This is the same dynamic going on between the IAEA and the World Health Organization. 
So we really have no clue how much radiation was in the air on the central coast in the days and weeks after the Fukushima accident thanks to the government’s purposeful coverup. DID THE NUCLEAR LOVING NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION AND THE NUCLEAR LOVING DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY SUGGEST TO THE EPA THAT THEY DO THIS??? After all, they were running the show at the time. 
A Congressional investigation needs to be launched to find out. Hirsch said we do know from a monitor in Bakersfield, before it ‘broke’ in mid-march, that radiation in air was spiking up. 
WHOSE IDEA WAS IT TO NOT MONITOR THE AREAS THAT PROJECTIONS WERE SAYING WOULD BE HARDEST HIT BY THE NUCLEAR PLUME? WOULDN’T YOU LIKE TO KNOW?
Knowing what was coming, maybe somebody’s thinking was, if we don’t monitor the nuclear poison, then the pro nuclear folks can say it doesn’t exist, or nothing bad happened. Wouldn’t you agree that if this is what happened, whoever came up with that plan needs to be held accountable?
What is the take away?

1. We have evidence above of the EPA turning off radiation monitors in areas where predictions of jet streams coming into the US indicated that plumes of radiation from Fukushima were going to be the highest and worst. (The EPA said those monitors ‘broke’.)
2. The EPA did not deploy mobile units to those same areas, where they claim that the radiation monitors ‘broke’, thus leaving whole areas with no data on what came from Fukushima. Thus, they have no idea what people were breathing in, in the very WORST areas, at the very worst and highest radiation times. 
3. The EPA, the US government and the nuclear regulators never warned anyone of what was coming. They denied it would cause any harm and told no one to take preventative radioactive iodine tablets, which could have saved many children from having thyroid problems and cancers. They could have prevented many or most of the 50,000 additional infant deaths that happened in the first months following 3/11.

Fukushima Caused An Additional 50,000 USA Newborn Deaths 3/11 to 12/11; via @AGreenRoad
4. Neither the EPA, the NRC nor any of the dozens of nuclear plants across the US made public any of the radiation readings that all of the nuclear plants across the country received from the Fukushima radiation plume. They all KNOW what came over the USA. But they are NOT disclosing what they know. They cannot just shut off all of those radiation monitors that surround every nuclear plant, and there is no way that all of them had ‘broken’ radiation monitors. Then we also the dozens of nuclear labs that also have very sophisticated radiation monitors. What were they doing after 3/11?
5. Finally, the EPA ‘censored’ or scrubbed/delted beta radiation data all across the US after Fukushima, per the video above, to minimize the amount of radiation that was detected coming to the US from Fukushima, to make it all look ‘better’.

Dog Studies And Inhaled Plutonium Radiation Effects

Live in San Francisco? You (and your dog) Inhaled 75 MILLION Plutonium Atoms In Just 4 days

People, kids (and dogs) living in San Francisco inhaled 75 million plutonium atoms or ‘hot’ particles in just 4 days, according to PorterBlog analysis of EPA data. The data is VERY conservative, and is based on 1 second inhalation/exhalation with no particles sticking in the lungs, which is not realistic, and is discounted by a huge factor. 

Remember that these dozens of different types of invisible radioactive gases and particles came out of Fukushima for MONTHS, not just 4 days. So you can safely multiply these figures by 2 for a one week period, (150 Million) then again by 4 for one month, (600 million) then again by 2 or 3 for the several months (1800 million) because Fukushima was on fire, exploding, leaking and steaming with larger amounts of radiation for months after 3/11, not just for 4 days. As a matter of fact, Fukushima is still spewing hot particles today, and unit #3 is still steaming, out of control, and highly radioactive water is still being dumped or leaked into the ocean at a rate of 400 tons per day, or more. 

Remember also, that this is only counting ONE radioactive element, and there were many more. Now you can multiply the above by the number of different radioactive elements, say at least 1,000, out of the 1,946 that are documented?

Now we are up to 1,800 million atoms times 1,000. So we are up to 180,000 million radioactive element atoms that were breathed in by an average child in the USA. What right does the nuclear industry have to perform this radiation experiment on millions, possibly billions of people on planet Earth?

Here are some medical and scientific studies to give you some possible ideas of what effects we may see in the near future, as the incubation periods run out on the plutonium, strontium, iodine, and other radioactive elements that everyone breathed in, and are now eating, and drinking via Fukushima contaminated foods and drinks….

INHALED PLUTONIUM AND DEATHS CAUSED BY BACTERIAL PNEUMONIA STUDY

Biological effects of inhaled 239PuO2 in Beagles.
Abstract
Seven groups of 8-24 Beagle dogs, exposed to (239)PuO(2) aerosols by inhalation [mean initial lung depositions (ILD) of 0.0, 0.14, 0.63, 3.2, 13, 44 and 210 kBq] were observed throughout their lives to determine tissues at risk and dose-effect relationships. The mean average pulmonary retention half-time of (239)Pu was 1,192 days. Most (70%) of the plutonium recovered at death in dogs surviving >10 years after exposure was found in the thoracic lymph nodes with ∼15% in lung, ∼10% in liver and ∼2% in bone. Eight dogs at the highest exposure levels died from radiation pneumonitis prior to a minimal 3-year latency period after exposure for the observation of lung tumors, with the first succumbing 337 days after exposure.

A 1996 testing of 144 Beagles given inhaled Plutonium killed 141 of the dogs within 1.5 to 5.4 years. Bone tumors killed 93, Lung tumours killed 46, and liver tumors killed 2 (although liver tumors were found in 20 dogs, just that the Bone and Lung killed quicker).

Radiat Res. 1996 Mar;145(3):361-81.
Toxicity of inhaled plutonium dioxide in beagle dogs.
Abstract
This study was conducted to determine the biological effects of inhaled 238PuO2 over the life spans of 144 beagle dogs. The dogs inhaled one of two sizes of monodisperse aerosols of 238PuO2 to achieve graded levels of initial lung burden (ILB). The aerosols also contained 169Yb to provide a gamma-ray-emitting label for the 238Pu inhaled by each dog. Excreta were collected periodically over each dog’s life span to estimate plutonium excretion; at death, the tissues were analyzed radiochemically for plutonium activity. The tissue content and the amount of plutonium excreted were used to estimate the ILB. These data for each dog were used in a dosimetry model to estimate tissue doses. The lung, skeleton and liver received the highest alpha-particle doses, ranging from 0.16-68 Gy for the lung, 0.08-8.7 Gy for the skeleton and 0.18-19 for the liver. At death all dogs were necropsied, and all organs and lesions were sampled and examined by histopathology. Findings of non-neoplastic changes included neutropenia and lymphopenia that developed in a dose-related fashion soon after inhalation exposure. These effects persisted for up to 5 years in some animals, but no other health effects could be related to the blood changes observed. Radiation pneumonitis was observed among the dogs with the highest ILBs. Deaths from radiation pneumonitis occurred from 1.5 to 5.4 years after exposure. Tumors of the lung, skeleton and liver occurred beginning at about 3 years after exposure. Bone tumors found in 93 dogs were the most common cause of death. Lung tumors found in 46 dogs were the second most common cause of death. Liver tumors, which were found in 20 dogs but were the cause of death in only two dogs, occurred later than the tumors in bone and lung. Tumors in these three organs often occurred in the same animal and were competing causes of death. These findings in dogs suggest that similar dose-related biological effects could be expected in humans accidentally exposed to 238PuO2.

PLUTONIUM CAUSING LUNG CANCER, BONE CANCER, LIVER TUMORS STUDY

Am J Pathol. 1988 November; 133(2): 265–276.

Primary liver tumors in beagle dogs exposed by inhalation to aerosols of plutonium-238 dioxide.
Abstract
Primary liver tumors developed in Beagle dogs exposed by inhalation to aerosols of 238PuO2. Initial deposition of 238PuO2 in the respiratory tract was followed by translocation of a portion of the 238Pu to the liver and skeleton, which resulted in a large dose commitment and tumor risk to all three tissues. 

In a population of 144 dogs exposed to 238PuO2, 112 dogs had died or were killed 4000 days after 238Pu exposure;
100 dogs had osteosarcoma
28 dogs had lung cancers
——————————
(128 out of 144 dogs developed disease or died due to plutonium. This does not include liver tumors below.)

At increasing times after exposure, however, liver lesions have become more pronounced. Ten primary liver tumors in nine animals were diagnosed in the dogs dying before 4000 days after exposure. An additional five primary liver tumors in three dogs occurred in 9 animals killed after 4000 days after exposure. The majority of these tumors have been fibrosarcomas. The liver tumors were usually not the cause of death, and rarely metastasized. The occurrence of liver tumors in this study indicates that 238Pu is an effective hepatic carcinogen. Liver carcinogenesis is assuming an increasing importance in this study at late times after inhalation exposure. These results suggest that the liver may be an important organ at risk for the development of neoplasia in humans at time periods long after inhalation of 238Pu.

The picture above is a liver tumor in a dog. Liver tumors happened mostly with lower levels of plutonium exposure. With higher amounts of plutonium exposure, the bones and heart were affected more. Note that they talk about a ‘latency’ period, which Helen Caldicott MD also talked about. It can take years for cancers to develop from initial exposure to plutonium, and this is called the ‘latency’ period.  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1880776/?page=7#


COBALT RADIATION CAUSING LEUKEMIA STUDY

Radiation-induced erythroleukemia in the beagle dog. A hematologic summary of five cases.
Abstract
Eleven cases of myeloproliferative disease occurred in a group of 24 beagle dogs placed in a 60Co gamma-ray field at about 13 months of age and irradiated at an exposure rate of 5 R/22-hour day for duratior of life. Of these 11 dogs, 5 (described in this paper) were diagnosed as having erythroleukemia. The bone marrow showed marked erythroblastic hyperplasia, with maturation arrest of the erythroid elements, and increased numbers of myeloblasts and promyelocytes. The terminal peripheral blood was characterized by marked anemia and thrombocytopenia, with circulating erythrocytic precursors and abnormal erythrocyte morphology. Splenomegaly and hepatomegaly occurred in 4 of the 5 animals. In the spleens and livers of all 5, there was extensive leukemic infiltration and proliferation. The extent of leukemic involvement in other tissues and organs varied in individual dogs.

PLUTONIUM AND BENZOPYRENE COMBINATION AND LUNG CANCERS STUDY

This study describes the effect of intratracheal instillations (2 X 5 mg) of benzo(a)pyrene (B(a)P) on lung carcinogenesis in rats which had previously inhaled different levels of 239 plutonium oxide (220, 630, 6300 Bq, initial lung burden). Survival decreased with increasing PuO2 exposure and additional B(a)P exposure. The incidence of malignant lung tumours, adjusted for differences in survival, increased in a dose-related fashion with PuO2 dose and was elevated in the presence of additional B(a)P exposure. A multiplicative relative risk model was found to describe reasonably well the observed joint effect. The practical implications of these findings are discussed.

PRECONCEPTION RADIATION AND PLUTONIUM EXPOSURE STUDY

We have investigated the possibility that transgenerational effects from preconceptional paternal irradiation (PPI) may render offspring more vulnerable to secondary exposure to an unrelated carcinogen. 239Pu (0, 128 or 256 Bq g(-1)) was administered by intravenous injection to male mice, 12 weeks before mating with normal females. Two strains of mouse were used — CBA/H and BDF1. Haemopoietic spleen colony-forming units (CFU-S) and fibroblastoid colony-forming units (CFU-F), a component of their regulatory microenvironment, were assayed independently in individual offspring at 6, 12 and 19 weeks of age. Bone marrow and spleen from each of these mice were grown in suspension culture for 2 or 7 days for assessment of chromosomal aberrations. Female BDF1 were injected with methyl-nitroso-urea (MNU) as a secondary carcinogen at 10 weeks of age and monitored for onset of leukaemia/lymphoma. Mean values of CFU-S and CFU-F were unaffected by preconceptional paternal plutonium-239 (PP-239Pu), although for CFU-F in particular there was an apparent increase in variation between individual animals. There was significant evidence of an increase in chromosomal aberrations with dose in bone marrow but not in spleen. By 250 days, 68% of MNU-treated control animals (no PPI) had developed thymic lymphoma (62%) or leukaemia (38%). The first case arose 89 days after MNU administration. In the groups with PPI, leukaemia/lymphoma developed from 28 days earlier, rising to 90% by 250 days. Leukaemia (65%) now predominated over lymphoma (35%). This second generation excess of leukaemia appears to be the result of PPI and may be related to inherited changes that affect the development of haemopoietic stem cells.

LEUKEMIA AND RESPONSE TO CHEMOTHERAPY STUDY

Out of a total of 185 cases of acute leukemia at our institution from 1967 to 1978, fifteen cases (8.1%) were identified as erythroleukemia or erythremic myelosis. The symptoms at presentation were often related to anemia (10/15 cases); the presenting hemoglobin value was lower than 10.0 gm/100 ml. Nucleated red cells were present in the peripheral blood and reticulocyte response was inappropriate to the degree of anemia. Marrow biopsy showed erythroid hyperplasia with megaloblastic and dyserythropoietic features, increase in myeloblasts greater than 5% (10/15 cases), positive PAS staining of erythroid precursors (12/12 cases), and erythrophagocytosis by abnormal erythroid precursors (6/15 cases). Abnormalities were noted in monocytic and megakaryocytic cell lines, and it was concluded that erythroleukemia is probably a stem cell disorder. Response to chemotherapy was poor with median survival of four months from initial diagnosis. Intracranial hemorrhage and bacterial or fungal infection were the most frequent cause of death.

828 Radioactive Beagles Are Buried At Hanford

October 17, 1990
SPOKANE, WASH. — Hundreds of dead dogs, the remains of a Cold War radiation experiment, were shipped to the Hanford nuclear reservation for burial last month. Coming next: 17.5 tons of their radioactive excrement. The 828 dead beagles, shipped from California in 55-gallon drums, were buried in trenches at Hanford. Their remains had been stored in freezers at the Institute of Toxicology and Environmental Health on the University of California campus at Davis. The last dog died at the age of 18 1/2 in 1986, 27 years after government-funded beagle experiments began. The beagle cleanup, expected to cost about $22 million, is part of a nationwide Department of Energy effort to clean up radiation contamination at university labs.”
What is the take away from the EPA reference and the dog studies? If plutonium is so safe, why did they have to collect all of these plutonium dosed dogs and their waste and ship them to a hazardous waste site like Hanford? Plutonium and the other radioactive elements that come out of nuclear weapons labs, processing facilities, and recycling units are deadly dangerous, and the risk goes up with increasing dose. If plutonium was as safe as the pro nuclear apologists claim, they would have just buried the dogs locally, or handed them over to a local pet cemetery. 

The hazard of plutonium goes up when it is combined with other chemicals or hazardous, toxic materials, such as the other things that come out of a nuclear reactor disaster, oil products, chemicals used in daily life, and more. 

Plutonium is also a hazard for young males and females, who will have kids. The plutonium causes higher rates of birth defects and leukemia in kids born to parents who have been exposed to plutonium.  Pregnant women are also at higher risk because the plutonium can and does get into or near the eggs, sperm and fetus, causing direct harm to the human embryo. 

If someone tries to tell you plutonium is not dangerous, you can smile, nod and tell them about these studies. Then vote the pro nuclear apologists out of office.  Because you have seen the studies, and you have seen the effects of plutonium, that should be enough to close down all of these genocidal death traps. If this is not enough, offer to take the pro nuclear person to Hanford and show them the close to 1,000 radioactive dogs buried in 55 gallon drums, along with their radioactive waste.

We know that plutonium was released in massive amounts (600-6000 pounds) from Fukushima. We learned that plutonium is deadly in even very small nano sized particles. According to Helen Caldicott MD, just one pound of plutonium turned into nano particle dust and distributed all around the world, can kill everyone long term, after the incubation period, which can last 30 to 40 years. 

The nuclear industry is rapidly expanding the use of plutonium and converting ALL uranium fueled reactors to burn plutonium instead. Plutonium is also being used in space vehicles, satellites, and more. 

The problem is that plutonium can burn when exposed to air, thus releasing it’s super deadly nano particles. It is also a terrorism risk, because it is very easy to make a hydrogen bomb out of just a small amount of it. Wouldn’t you agree, that this highly flammable, deadly cancer causing substance should not be allowed near your neighborhood or in the world? 

Dogs and kids are much more vulnerable to radioactive substances such as plutonium. Dogs fur is like a magnet for hot charged particles, and their noses are close to the ground. They are sniffing in hot particles that are more abundant closer to the ground. Their hairy paws also pick up hot particles. They lick these hot particles and ingest them as they groom themselves or their pups. When they shake, they ‘spray’ hot particles in all directions out of their fur. 

When pets come in the house, they can contaminate the whole house, if they walked through or rolled in a ‘hot’ spot. So it is wise if you own a pet, to periodically test their paws, their pet bed and test areas where the pet spends time (such as on the couch or bed) for radiation with a high quality pancake detector style of Geiger counter. AGRP has seen at least one instance where a pet owner was shocked to find radioactive couch cushions in their house, but that is where their pet spent most of it’s time.

Please help shut down the nuclear industry, which seems to be setting out to destroy not only our most beloved companions, (kids, dogs and cats), but all life on the planet with their deadly radioactive substances.

2014 – Fukushima Radiation Linked By Scientists To Hairless Seals And Mass Animal Die Offs In Alaska


Beyond strange, very weird things are going on with the wildlife and the weather in Alaska. The following things have never been seen before in recorded history of the Eskimos of Alaska.  

Weather and strange animals that have never been seen before are being spotted all over the state. There are really odd things going on that are being photographed and reported all over the state. 

Seals and salmon are being found with white spots, sores and white goo inside of them. Sea stars are dissolving into white goo, all the way from Alaska to Mexico. The crows, polar bears and other scavengers won’t touch these ‘weird’ animals, despite being the official  dead animal cleanup ‘buzzards’ of Alaska. 

In another case, a seal was harvested, and the organs were all ‘wrong’. The kidneys were too small on one side and too large and almost black on the other, the liver was about 1/2 normal size.

More strange going ons in Alaska, include hairless seals, orange colored seal,  unusual growths inside salmon, krill die off, fish die off, dead sea birds, sick fish with growth on it, and more.

For all those that believe the earth is cooling down, in Decemmber of 2013, the far northern part of the North Slope in Alaska there is no snow, very warm weather, 45 degrees Fahrenheit, rain plus very unusual lightning, while at the same time, it is -10 below zero Fahrenheit in the midwest part of the United States. The north slope Alaska cold weather and southern states warm weather has been reversed. The lower 48 is getting Alaska’s weather, and Alaska is getting the lower 48 states weather.

Due to accelerated global warming, polar bears in Alaska are getting so desperate for food, they are now being seen drinking hydraulic fluid, eating car batteries and car seats, just to make it through another day, because there is no ice pack to go hunting on.
http://www.weather.com/video/polar-bears-change-their-diets-43732

The lower 48 is getting Alaska’s weather, and Alaska is getting the lower 48 states weather. It is -20 In Minnesota in the middle of January 2014, without the wind chill factor added in. At the same time, it is +45 degrees Fahrenheit in far north Alaska, which should be having this -20 temperature. What kind of crazy is going on here? 



Back in 2002, it was noted that seals do accumulate cesium in their bodies. Why would that be so hard to believe now?


“Seals are high trophic level feeders that bioaccumulate many contaminants to a greater degree than most lower trophic level organisms. Their trophic status in the marine food web and wide-spread distribution make seals useful sentinels of arctic environmental change.”

For the first time ever, scientists are admitting that Fukushima radiation is related to unusual seal deaths noted above. They are blaming a ‘pulse’ of radiation from Fukushima as the ice melted for causing the problems with seals, polar bears and walruses.

Now that the connections are starting to fall into place, nearly three years after the Fukushima mega disaster happened, maybe the  pro nuclear scientists will even start admitting reality instead of living in some kind of strange fantasy world where no one is affected and no animals die or get sick from the largest, most toxic, most deadly radiation release the planet has ever seen in human history. They have never admitted to anything like this for any prior nuclear accident, but there is always a hope for a first time, right?

Is There ‘Natural’ Plutonium And Are There ‘Natural’ Fission Reactions?


Did plutonium exist in Nature in the recent past? The answer is a realistic NO. Are there ‘natural’ fission reactors on Earth? The answer is a realistic NO. We have to go back 1.7 billion years to find any plutonium or fission reactions on Earth, and then it occurred only in one place on Earth, and no where else, and at no other time.
According to Wikipedia; “Trace amounts of at least three plutonium isotopes (plutonium 239 in a few parts per trillion, and its decay products are ‘naturally’ found ONLY in some concentrated ores of uranium,[43] at the ancient but dead natural nuclear fission reactor in Oklo, Gabon.[44]
Oklo is the only known location for this in the world and consisted of self-sustaining nuclear fission reactions that took place approximately 1.7 billion years ago, and ran for a few hundred thousand years, averaging 100 kW of thermal power during that time.[2][3]
Note; this totally underground nuclear reaction happened 1.7 BILLION years ago, way before there was any human life on Earth. This underground, invisible and undetectable nuclear reaction stopped way before human living beings inhabited the planet.
So for all intents and purposes, there has been no ‘natural’ fission happening and there has been no plutonium has been around since humans walked the Earth, contrary to what pro nuclear apologists claim. All of the plutonium generated by this underground reaction has decayed away. If any is left, that miniscule amount is still found underground, only in the one location, at Oklo, Africa, where almost no one lives.
Wikipedia has another entry for plutonium; “Primordial plutonium-244 has a relatively long half-life of about 80 million years.[46] These trace amounts of 239Pu originated in the following fashion: On rare occasions, 238U undergoes spontaneous fission, and in the process, the nucleus emits one or two free neutrons with some kinetic energy. When one of these neutrons strikes the nucleus of another 238U atom, it is absorbed by the atom, which becomes 239U. With a relatively short half-life, U-239 decays to neptunium-239 (239Np), and then 239Np decays into 239Pu.
Since the relatively long-lived isotope plutonium-240 occurs in the decay chain of plutonium-244 it should also be present, albeit 10,000 times rarer still. Finally, exceedingly small amounts of plutonium-238, attributed to the extremely rare double beta decay of uranium-238, have been found in natural uranium samples.[47]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plutonium
With an 80 million year half life, all of the measurable plutonium that happened from the fission process below ground in Oklo, disappeared in 800 million years. This is still a couple hundred million years before people even walked on the planet. Bottom line, anyone who says that large amounts of plutonium were lying around all over the place naturally before the atomic age covered the Earth with it is either lying or trying to deceive someone into believing that plutonium is ‘safe’ or ‘natural’ somehow, via the hormesis theory.
Some pro nuclear apologists even go so far as to claim that because plutonium is ‘primordial’, it is safe and ‘normal’ to be around. The only problem with this theory, is that for all practical purposes and intents, plutonium cannot be found in Nature, because the amounts are so small, so buried, so hard to find, so difficult to get to, that for all realistic and practical medical purposes, plutonium did not exist in the human environment before the atomic age and humans created it in the lab.
Whatever ‘primordial’ plutonium exists in nano particle amounts, is only associated with uranium deposits and is locked into those rocks. No one was stupid enough to dig up these very toxic and deadly elements before the atomic age. The parts per TRILLION amount of plutonium found in ‘primordial’ uranium did not register on any medical tests and no one died from it. 
Parts per trillion of plutonium inside uranium rocks are so hard to find, it takes special nuclear physics lab equipment to even detect it. Effectively, before the atomic age, no human exposure to plutonium was possible, and plutonium was not detectable in humans before the atomic age.
In addition to the above, uranium or thorium deposits were widely made taboo by indigenous tribes globally. These ‘hot’ rocks or sands were called ‘bad medicine’, to be avoided at all costs. American Indians and indigenous peoples around the globe were told by their shamans and chiefs not to disturb the soil or rocks where uranium was present. People were told to avoid going into these areas. These ancient wise people KNEW ‘natural’ uranium deposits were dangerous and so they made it taboo to be around any soil or rocks containing uranium. Only the nuclear scientists, bent on making nuclear bombs, have violated this taboo, and humanity is now paying the price for it. 
Since plutonium was ‘discovered’ in 1940 through initiating nuclear fission in labs, plutonium, tritium, cesium and hundreds of other man made radioactive elements have been produced artificially in weapons labs and nuclear reactors by nuclear scientists intent on being masters of the power that approximates the sun, but not really, because the sun works via fusion power, not fission.
Due to numerous accidents and releases of plutonium via pyrophoric plutonium fires in atomic bomb weapons labs, as well as the ‘testing’ of 2,400 atomic bombs globally, plus the ‘accidental’ dropping and exploding of hydrogen bombs where the high explosives went off, crashing plutonium satellites, plutonium is now present in detectable amounts in the global environment as a man made radioactive pollutant and toxic heavy metal. Man made radioactive plutonium has gone all around the world. 
Some cesium and strontium are now commonly and usually found in the human body due to the 2,400 atmospheric and underwater nuclear tests that have been carried out, as well as due to a small number of major nuclear accidents, such as Santa Susana, Three Mile Island, Fukushima and Chernobyl. Plutonium may also be found in some locations.
“Most atmospheric and underwater nuclear testing was stopped by the Limited Test Ban Treaty in 1963, which was signed and ratified by the United States, the United Kingdom, the Soviet Union, and other nations. Continued atmospheric nuclear weapons testing since 1963 by non-treaty nations included those by China (atomic bomb test above the Gobi Desert in 1964, hydrogen bomb test in 1967, and follow-on tests), and France (tests as recently as the 1990s). Because it is deliberately manufactured for nuclear weapons and nuclear reactors, plutonium-239 is the most abundant isotope of plutonium by far.”[32]
Some pro nuclear folks may even claim that the sun is ‘natural’ fission. But that is also nothing more than deceptive misleading pro nuclear propaganda. 

Let’s also go into the statement within the video that the sun is a source of natural ‘radiation’. First of all the sun is powered by fusion, not fission. Trying to say that man made nuclear radioactive elements are as harmless as the sun’s light and infrared rays generated by fusion is like trying to say the moon is made of cheese, because it looks like a piece of cheese. 

Wikipedia says that; “the Sun is the star at the center of the Solar System. It is almost perfectly spherical and consists of hot plasma interwoven with magnetic fields.[12][13] It has a diameter of about 1,392,684 km (865,374 mi),[5] around 109 times that of Earth, and its mass (1.989×1030 kilograms, approximately 330,000 times the mass of Earth) accounts for about 99.86% of the total mass of the Solar System.[14] Chemically, about three quarters of the Sun’s mass consists of hydrogen, while the rest is mostly helium. The remainder (1.69%, which nonetheless equals 5,600 times the mass of Earth) consists of heavier elements, including oxygencarbonneon and iron, among others.[15]
The Sun formed about 4.6 billion[a] years ago from the gravitational collapse of a region within a large molecular cloud. Most of the matter gathered in the center, while the rest flattened into an orbiting disk that would become the Solar SystemThe central mass became increasingly hot and dense, eventually initiating fusion in its core
It is thought that almost all stars form by this process. The Sun is a G-type main-sequence star(G2V) based on spectral class and it is informally designated as a yellow dwarf because its visible radiation is most intense in the yellow-green portion of the spectrum, and although it is actually white in color, from the surface of the Earth it may appear yellow because of atmospheric scattering of blue light.[16]In the spectral class label, G2 indicates itssurface temperature, of approximately 5778 K (5505 °C), and V indicates that the Sun, like most stars, is a main-sequence star, and thus generates its energy by fusion of hydrogen nuclei into helium. In its core, the Sun fuses 620 million metric tons of hydrogen each second…..
Through most of the Sun’s life, energy is produced by fusion through a series of steps called the p–p (proton–proton) chain; this process converts hydrogen into helium.[48]
The core is the only region in the Sun that produces an appreciable amount of thermal energy through fusion; 99% of the power is generated within 24% of the Sun’s radius, and by 30% of the radius, fusion has stopped nearly entirely.The rest of the star is heated by energy that is transferred outward by radiation from the core to the convective layers just outside. The energy produced by fusion in the core must then travel through many successive layers to the solar photosphere before it escapes into space as sunlight or the kinetic energy of particles.[50][51]
The sun’s rays emit health giving light, infrared and ultraviolet rays, which humans, plants and animals have evolved over hundreds of thousands or millions of years to be able to live in harmony with and rely on for such things as photosynthesis, generating Vitamin D in the skin and much more. 
Humans cannot live in proximity to man made or even ‘natural’ radioactive elements and thrive. People who work in uranium mines or who breathe in radon get lung cancer and other diseases. The same applies to ingesting one of hundreds of man made radioactive elements; ALL OF THEM are deadly heavy metals which mimic natural minerals, and they emit DEADLY alpha, beta, gamma, and/or neutron radiation which the sun does not. 
The sun can burn the skin if a person is not acclimated to it, but if the sun were toxic to all of life, why are all living things not getting cancer and decaying, being burned, and withering away? Yes, even the sun’s rays can cause burning and damage to the skin, but this infrared and ultraviolet and visible light energy can be seen and avoided if one wants to. It is easy to sit in the shade or walk around with clothing, or to go out only after the sun goes down. 
By comparison, man made radioactive elements cannot be avoided, as they are completely invisible, but super deadly. Radioactive gases and hot particles can be breathed in and cause cancer or genetic diseases. There is no way to avoid this. You cannot find ‘shade’ or drink/eat ‘pure’ non radioactive contaminated foods or drinks, because these man made radioactive elements concentrate up the food chain to man and build up internally, until they reach disease causing or lethal levels. The sun’s rays may hit you, but they do not build up internally to toxic levels. The sun does not cause anything harmful to concentrate up the food chain to lethal levels. 
What is the take away? 
There is no ‘natural nuclear fission’ (not even in the sun) and there is no ‘natural man made radioactive element’. Even low doses of radiation from man made radioactive elements can and do cause cancer, genetic diseases, diabetes, ALS, heart disease, leukemia and many more.  Man made radioactive elements are created by a fission process, which results in negative transmutation or decay of elements that ends in lead, which is also a deadly heavy metal, even in just minute quantities. The sun does not do any of this. The sun’s rays do not result in decay or negative transmutation of elements. The sun’s fusion process does not create heavy metals that ends in lead, which then poisons all of life.

What is the take away? For all practical, health, medical and global purposes, plutonium is nothing more than a toxic heavy metal that acts as a poison directly within the body, just like lead. Plutonium is also a radioactive cancer initiator in the human body. There is no known positive and health giving use for plutonium, uranium, thorium or radon.

Plutonium mimics iron in the body, replacing it, and then doing damage where ever it ends up going. Iron (and radioactive plutonium) concentrates in the bone marrow and liver, so that is where most of the damage done by plutonium occurs, but cancers of all kinds are possible, including lung, brain, liver, bone, blood, and more.

1966 Palomares Spain B-52 Crash Spread Plutonium From Hydrogen Bombs Over Wide Area


In the video above, village residents are interviewed about the Palomares hydrogen bomb nuclear disaster. Simple country folks like these are easy to mislead and lie to about nuclear radiation dangers. The military did a good job about hiding the dangers of plutonium from these simple country people living in a fairly remote area. They are still suffering today. That suffering will continue for hundreds of thousands of years into the future, but the military, mass media and government denies it all and continues the coverup.

The 1966 Palomares B-52 crash or Palomares incident occurred on 17 January 1966, when a B-52G bomber of the United States Air Force‘sStrategic Air Command collided with a KC-135 tanker during mid-air refuelling at 31,000 feet (9,450 m) over the Mediterranean Sea, off the coast of Spain. 

The KC-135 was completely destroyed when its fuel load ignited, killing all four crew members. The B-52G broke apart, killing three of the seven crew members aboard.[1]

Of the four Mk28-type hydrogen bombs the B-52G carried,[2] three were found on land near the small fishing village of Palomares in the municipality of Cuevas del Almanzora, Almería, Spain. 

The non-nuclear explosives in two of the weapons detonated upon impact with the ground, resulting in the contamination of a 2-square-kilometer (490-acre) (0.78 square mile) area by plutonium. The fourth, which fell into the Mediterranean Sea, was recovered intact after a 2½-month-long search.[3]

The B-52G began its mission from Seymour Johnson Air Force Base,North Carolina, carrying four Type B28RI hydrogen bombs[3] on a Cold War airborne alert mission named Operation Chrome Dome. The flight plan took the aircraft east across the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Seatowards the European borders of the Soviet Union before returning home. The lengthy flight required two mid-air refuellings over Spain.[1]

At about 10:30 am on 17 January 1966, while flying at 31,000 feet (9,450 m), the bomber commenced its second aerial refuelling with a KC-135 out of Morón Air Base in southern Spain. The B-52 pilot, Major Larry G. Messinger, later recalled,[4]

“We came in behind the tanker, and we were a little bit fast, and we started to overrun him a little bit. There is a procedure they have in refueling where if the boom operator feels that you’re getting too close and it’s a dangerous situation, he will call, ‘Break away, break away, break away.’ There was no call for a break away, so we didn’t see anything dangerous about the situation. But all of a sudden, all hell seemed to break loose.”

The planes collided, with the nozzle of the refueling boom striking the top of the B-52 fuselage, breaking a longeron and snapping off the left wing,[5][6] which resulted in an explosion that was witnessed by a second B-52 about a mile away.[7] All four men on the KC-135 and three of the seven men on the bomber were killed.

Those killed in the tanker were boom operator Master Sergeant Lloyd Potolicchio, pilot Major Emil J. Chapla, copilot Captain Paul R. Lane, and navigator Captain Leo E. Simmons.

On board the bomber, navigator First Lieutenant Steven G. Montanus, electronic warfare officer First Lieutenant George J. Glessner, and gunner Technical Sergeant Ronald P. Snyder were killed.[5][6] Montanus was seated on the lower deck of the main cockpit and was able to eject from the plane, but his parachute never opened.[5]Glessner and Snyder were on the upper deck, near the point where the refuelling boom struck the fuselage, and were not able to eject.[6]

Four of the seven crew members of the bomber managed to parachute to safety: Major Messinger, aircraft commander Captain Charles F. Wendorf, copilot First Lieutenant Michael J. Rooney. and radar-navigator Captain Ivens Buchanan.[1][8] Buchanan received burns from the explosion and was unable to separate himself from his ejection seat, but he was nevertheless able to open his parachute, and he survived the impact with the ground. The other three surviving crew members landed safely several miles out to sea.[4]

The Palomares residents carried Buchanan to a local clinic, while Wendorf and Rooney were picked up at sea by the fishing boat Dorita. The last to be rescued was Messinger, who spent 45 minutes in the water before he was brought aboard the fishing boat Agustin y Rosa by Francisco Simó Orts. All three men who landed in the sea were taken to a hospital in Águilas.[1]

Weapons recovery

The aircraft and hydrogen bombs fell to earth near the fishing village of Palomares. This settlement is part of Cuevas del Almanzora municipality, in the Almeria province of Andalucía, Spain. Three of the weapons were located on land within 24 hours of the accident—the conventional explosives in two had exploded on impact, spreading contaminated material, while a third was found relatively intact in a riverbed. The fourth weapon could not be found despite an intensive search of the area—the only part that was recovered was the parachute tail plate, leading searchers to postulate that the weapon’s parachute had deployed, and that the wind had carried it out to sea.[1][3][9]

During early stages of recovery after the accident the 66th Tactical Reconnaissance Wing, flying RF-101C Voodoos out of RAF Upper Heyford near Oxford, England, provided aerial photographs to assist in the recovery operation and to document the crash site.[citation needed]

On 22 January, the Air Force contacted the U.S. Navy for assistance. The Navy convened a Technical Advisory Group (TAG), chaired by Rear Admiral L. V. Swanson with Dr. John P. Craven and Captain Willard F. Searle, Jr., to identify resources and skilled personnel that needed to be moved to Spain.[10]

The search for the fourth bomb was carried out by means of a novel mathematical method, Bayesian search theory, led by Dr. Craven.[10] This method assigns probabilities to individual map grid squares, then updates these as the search progresses. Initial probability input is required for the grid squares, and these probabilities made use of the fact that a local fisherman, Francisco Simó Orts,[3] popularly known since then as “Paco el de la bomba” (“Bomb Paco” or “Bomb Frankie”),[11] witnessed the bomb entering the water at a certain location. Orts was contacted by the U.S. Air Force to assist in the search operation.

The United States Navy assembled the following ships in response to Air Force request for assistance:[12]
Alvin submersible

USS Kiowa (ATF-72), a Navajo class fleet tug arrived 27 January,[13] first on-scene
USS Macdonough (DLG-8) flagship through January
USS Pinnacle (MSO-462) found UQS-1 SONAR contact where Francisco Simo-Orts saw the bomb fall
USS Rival (MSO-468) mother ship for PC3B submersible
USS Sagacity (MSO-469) confirmedPinnacles SONAR contact
USS Fort Snelling (LSD-30) served as a support ship for the submersibles
USS Boston (CAG-1) Flagship 30 Jan until 15 March
USS Albany (CG-10) flagship 15 March through April
USS Plymouth Rock (LSD-29)transported Aluminaut and Alvin to the search site
USS Lindenwald (LSD-6) transported Aluminaut to Miami, Florida after Palomares incident
PC-3B (Ocean Systems, Inc. submersible capable of searching to 600 feet)
Deep Jeep (a Navy submersible capable of diving to 2000 feet)
CURV[1] (Cable-Controlled Underwater Recovery Vehicle)
USS Luiseno (ATF-156) removed aircraft wreck debris from the search site
USS Everglades (AD-24) removed aircraft wreck debris from the search site
USNS Lt. George W. G. Boyce (T-AK-251) removed radioactive contaminated soil from Spain.

The recovery operation was led by Supervisor of Salvage, Capt Searle.[10] Hoist, Petrel and Tringa brought 150 qualified divers who searched to 120 feet with compressed air, to 210 feet with mixed gas, and to 350 feet (110 m) with hard-hat rigs;[15] but the bomb lay in an uncharted area of the Rio Almanzora canyon on a 70-degree slope at a depth of 2,550 feet (780 m).[15] 

After a search that continued for 80 days following the crash, the bomb was located by the DSV Alvin on 17 March, but was dropped and temporarily lost when the Navy attempted to bring it to the surface.[16] After the loss of the recovered bomb the ship’s positions were fixed by Decca HI-FIX position-locating equipment for subsequent recovery attempts.[17]
The recovered hydrogen bomb displayed on the fantail of the submarine rescue ship USS Petrel (ASR-14) after it was located by DSV Alvin at a depth of 2,500 feet (760 m)

Alvin located the bomb again on 2 April, this time at a depth of 2,900 feet (880 m).[9] On 7 April, an unmanned torpedo recovery vehicle, CURV-III, became entangled in the weapon’s parachute while attempting to attach a line to it. A decision was made to raise CURV and the weapon together to a depth of 100 feet (30 m), where divers attached cables to them. The bomb was brought to the surface by USS Petrel (ASR-14). The USS Cascade (AD-16) was diverted from its Naples destination and stayed on scene until recovery and took the bomb back to America.

Once the bomb was located, Simó Orts appeared at the First District Federal Court in New York City with his lawyer, Herbert Brownell, formerly Attorney general of the United States under President Dwight D. Eisenhower, claiming salvage rights on the recovered hydrogen bomb. According to Craven:[18]

“It is customary maritime law that the person who identifies the location of a ship to be salved has the right to a salvage award if that identification leads to a successful recovery. The amount is nominal, usually 1 or 2 percent, sometimes a bit more, of the intrinsic value to the owner of the thing salved. But the thing salved off Palomares was a hydrogen bomb, the same bomb valued by no less an authority than the Secretary of Defense at $2 billion—each percent of which is, of course, $20 million.”

The Air Force settled out of court for an undisclosed sum.[3]

Contamination

At 10:40 a.m. UTC, the accident was reported at the Command Post of the Sixteenth Air Force, and it was confirmed at 11:22. The commander of the U.S. Air Force at Torrejon Air Base, Spain, Major General Delmar E. Wilson, immediately traveled to the scene of the accident with a Disaster Control Team. Further Air Force personnel were dispatched later the same day, including nuclear experts from U.S. government laboratories.[19]

The first weapon to be discovered was found nearly intact. However, the conventional explosives from the other two bombs that fell on land detonated without setting off a nuclear explosion (akin to a dirty bomb explosion). 

This ignited the pyrophoric plutonium, producing a cloud that was dispersed by a 30-knot wind. A total of 260 ha (2 square kilometres (0.8 sq mi)) was contaminated with radioactive material. This included residential areas, farmland (especially tomato farms) and woods.[20]


Plutonium: several compounds are pyrophoric, and it causes some of the most serious fires occurring in United States Department of Energy facilities.[8]


To defuse alarm of contamination, on 8 March[21] the Spanish minister for information and tourism Manuel Fraga Iribarne and the United States ambassador Angier Biddle Duke swam on nearby beaches in front of press.[22] First the ambassador and some companions swam at Mojácar[21] — a resort 15 km (9 mi) away — and then Duke and Fraga swam at the Quitapellejosbeach in Palomares.[23]


Despite the cost and number of personnel involved in the cleanup, forty years later there remained traces of the contamination. Snails have been observed with unusual levels of radioactivity.[24] 

Political consequences

President Lyndon B. Johnson was first apprised of the situation in his morning briefing the same day as the accident. He was told that the 16th Nuclear Disaster Team had been sent to investigate, per the standard procedures for this type of accident. 

News stories related to the crash began to appear the following day, and it achieved front page status in both the New York Times and Washington Post on 20 January. Reporters sent to the accident scene covered angry demonstrations by the local residents. 

On 4 February, an underground Communist organization successfully initiated a protest by 600 people in front of the U.S. Embassy in Spain.[21] The Duchess of Medina Sidonia, Luisa Isabel Álvarez de Toledo (known as the “Red Duchess” for her socialist activism) eventually received a 13-month prison sentence for leading an illegal protest.[25]

Four days after the accident, the Spanish government stated that “the Palomares incident was evidence of the dangers created by NATO‘s use of the Gibraltar airstrip“, announcing that NATO aircraft would no longer be permitted to fly over Spanish territory either to or from Gibraltar.[26] 

On 25 January, as a diplomatic concession, the U.S. announced that it would no longer fly over Spain with nuclear weapons, and on 29 January the Spanish government formally banned U.S. flights over its territory that carried such weapons. This caused other nations hosting U.S. forces to review their policies, with the Philippine Foreign Secretary Narciso Ramos calling for a new treaty to restrict the operation of U.S. military aircraft in Filipino airspace.[21]

Palomares, and the Thule Air Base B-52 crash involving nuclear weapons two years later in Greenland, made Operation Chrome Dome politically untenable, leading the U.S. Department of Defense to announce that it would be “re-examining the military need” for continuing the program.[27] Forty years later in the town of Palomares, most people prefer to forget the incident, and it is now noted only by a street named “17 January 1966”.[22]

Cleanup?

Soil with radiation contamination levels above 1.2 MBq/m2 was placed in 250-litre (66 U.S. gallon) drums and shipped to theSavannah River Plant in South Carolina for burial. A total of 2.2 hectares (5.4 acres) was decontaminated by this technique, producing 6,000 barrels. 

17 hectares (42 acres) of land with lower levels of contamination was mixed to a depth of 30 centimetres (12 in) by harrowing and plowing. On rocky slopes with contamination above 120 kBq/m2, the soil was removed with hand tools and shipped to the United States in barrels.[20]
Barrels of contaminated soil being prepared for removal to the United States for processing

In 2004, a study revealed that there was still some significant contamination present in certain areas, and the Spanish government subsequently expropriated some plots of land which would otherwise have been slated for agriculture use or housing construction.[28] 

In early October 2006, the Spanish and United States governments agreed to decontaminate the remaining areas and share the workload and costs, which are hitherto unknown, as it first needs to be determined to what extent leaching of the plutonium (and americium) has occurred in the 40 years since the incident.

On 11 October 2006, Reuters reported that higher than normal levels of radiation were detected in snails and other wildlife in the region, indicating there may still be dangerous amounts of radioactive material underground.[24] The discovery occurred during an investigation being carried out by Spain’s energy research agency CIEMAT and the U.S. Department of Energy. The U.S. and Spain agreed to share the cost of the initial investigation.

In April 2008, CIEMAT announced they had found two trenches, totalling 2,000 cubic metres (71,000 cu ft), where the U.S. Army stored contaminated earth during the 1966 operations. The American government agreed in 2004 to pay for the decontamination of the grounds, and the cost of the removal and transportation of the contaminated earth has been estimated at $2 million. 

The trenches were found near the cemetery, where one of the nuclear devices was retrieved in 1966, and they were probably dug at the last moment by American troops before leaving Palomares. CIEMAT expects to find remains of plutonium and americium once an exhaustive analysis of the earth is carried out.[29] [30] 

In a conversation in December 2009, the Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Ángel Moratinos told the US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that he feared Spanish public opinion might turn against the US once the results of the study on nuclear contamination were to be revealed.[31]

In August 2010, a Spanish government source revealed that the U.S. has stopped the annual payments it has made to Spain, as the bilateral agreement in force since the accident, “expired”, the previous year.[32]

As of 2012, Spain is asking the United States to finish cleaning up the area.[33]

Aftermath
The casings of two B28 nuclear bombs involved in the Palomares incident are on display at the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History, in Albuquerque, NM

The empty casings of two of the bombs involved in this incident are now on display in the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History in Albuquerque, New Mexico.[4]

While serving on the salvage ship USS Hoist (ARS-40) during recovery operations, Navy diver Carl Brashear had his leg crushed in a deck accident and lost the lower part of his left leg. His story was the inspiration for the 2000 Cuba Gooding, Jr., film Men of Honor.[34]

In March 2009, Time magazine identified the Palomares accident as one of the world’s “worst nuclear disasters”.[35]
This incident was given the movie treatment in a semi serious film, The Day the Fish Came Out, which covers the story of a plane crash alongside a Greek (not Spanish) Island and the surreptitious attempts by plainclothes US Naval personnel to find the missing bombs.

“The remainder of the original plutonium clearly has spread, and spread widely,” said William R. Schell, a University of Pittsburgh emeritus professor and a member of the international team that reported on the accident in the current edition of the journal Science and the Total Environment. “There’s been quite a bit of migration into the Mediterranean.” Radioactivity was detected in western Mediterranean plankton — tiny plants and animals that drift in the water and serve as staple food for fish and other larger organisms. “It was a surprise,” said Joan-Albert Sanchez-Cabeza of the University of Barcelona, head of the research team. Sanchez-Cabeza explained that plutonium does not dissolve easily in water. Yet somehow, plutonium and..americium, got into the water and were taken up by marine organisms. Plutonium is extremely toxic and lingers in the environment for ages. It takes 24,000 years for half of a given amount to decay. When absorbed into the body from air, food or cuts in the skin, it can cause cancer and other serious health problems.” 

According to History.com, “nearly 2,000 U.S. military personnel and Spanish civil guards rushed to clean up the debris and decontaminate the area. The U.S. personnel took precautions to prevent overexposure to the radiation, but the Spanish workers, who lived in a country that lacked experience with nuclear technology, did not. Studies on the effects of the nuclear accident on the people of Palomares were limited, but the United States eventually settled some 500 claims by residents whose health was adversely affected. Because the accident happened in a foreign country, it received far more publicity than did the dozen or so similar crashes that occurred within U.S. borders. As a security measure, U.S. authorities do not announce nuclear weapons accidents, and some American citizens may have unknowingly been exposed to radiation that resulted from aircraft crashes and emergency bomb jettisons. Today, hydrogen bombs and a uranium core lie in yet undetermined locations in the Wassaw Sound off Georgia, in the Puget Sound off Washington, and in swamplands near Goldsboro, North Carolina. 

According to Counterpunch; “The tomato fields near the craters were burned and buried. But there’s no question that due to strong winds and other factors much of the contaminated soil was simply left in the area. “The total extent of the spread will never be known,” concluded a 1975 report by the Defense Nuclear Agency. The U.S. workers wore protective clothing and were monitored for radiation exposure, but similar precautions weren’t taken for their Spanish counterparts. “The Air Force was unprepared to provide adequate detection and monitoring for personnel when an aircraft accident occurred involving plutonium weapons in a remote area of a foreign country,” the Air Force commander in charge of the cleanup later testified to Congress. 

According to Professor John Howard, KCL, Americans have a “cultural amnesia around the 1966 Palomares incident–labelled “the worst nuclear weapons disaster in history”–results not only from U.S. government censorship and concealment but also from key journalistic oversights and failures. Through an analysis of newspaper articles, editorial cartoons, anniversary features, and book-length accounts, this paper explains how corporate media unwittingly re-enacted American imperial violence and press complicity, demonstrating the controlling symbiotic relationship between the ruling and writing classes, the cozy interplay of politicos and journos. Applying theorist Rob Nixon’s concept, the paper argues that Palomares represents a scenario of “slow violence” extending so far into the future as to make forever and unhappily ever after a bleak reality.” Institute of North American Studies Research Seminar Series: American Violence. institute-nastudies@kcl.ac.uk 

What is the takeway? The US military hides, minimizes, denies or covers up ALL nuclear bomb accidents and disasters. The military works with the mass media press to cover up these incidents in every case. 
If a nuclear bomb accident is covered by the mass media, it is minimized to the point where it sounds like a few tomatoes fell off a truck. The military avoids notifying residents (both US and foreign) of the existence of radioactive and deadly heavy metal substances, even in dangerous amounts, as shown by the evidence provided above. 
The military does not provide protective clothing, decontamination, radiation monitors or follow up monitoring to ‘foreign’ workers in any accident, disaster or incident, leaving them to fend for themselves. Even the US military personnel are given minimal protection and monitoring, and no actual radiation readings are given to anyone, ever.

Plutonium burns when exposed to air, and spreads downwind. One nano particle inhaled can cause cancer many years later. The actions of the military when anything nuclear is involved indicate criminal coverups that in some cases could be called genocide. Just because people do not die right away, but rather die of cancer for hundreds of thousands of years into the future, does not make the genocide any less horrible. 

The US military and the nuclear industry have plans to use plutonium extensively in nuclear power plants, satellites, space travel, bombs, and much more. As a result, these toxic and deadly radiation filled areas will grow more numerous, spread to all corners of the planet and condemn countless future generations to a life filled with suffering. It is time to shut it all down, because if the plutonium cult is not shut down, they will cause the extinction of humanity, one way or the other.

Medical Doctors Talk About Natural Cancer Cures

The orthodox medical community claims that there are no ‘cures’ for cancer, but they are working on it. Their best try is a very toxic, expensive, quality of life depleting cancer causing chemotherapy and radiation. Could it be that a few medical doctors have discovered another way that they claim is actually a Big C cure, which is cheap, non toxic, natural and effective at reversing the Big C?

Dr. Max Gerson Big C Therapy: Green Juice for beginner. Basics with charts! 

LIST: 

Dark green lettuces — ¼ to ½ of a head (depending on the size of the lettuce): red and green leaf lettuces, romaine, endives.Iceberg is useless and do not use

Escarole — 2 or 3 leaves
Beet tops (young inner leaves) — 2 to 3 leaves
Watercress — 5 or 6 leaves
Red cabbage — 2 or 3 leaves
Green bell pepper — ¼
Swiss chard — little
Green apple — 1
Preparation:
Greens should be washed taking care to rinse off sand or soil that is often present at the base of the leaves. Shake off water or put in salad spinner to remove excess moisture. Cut off bottom portion of stems of chard or any other fibrous leaves. Chop up because it is quite stringy and hard to pulp. This avoids raising temperature of pulp and killing enzymes.
Using a two-step (grinder/press) juicer, grind and collect pulp in a bowl. When all produce has been ground stir thoroughly, but not so much as to introduce unnecessary air into the pulp. If you’re using an electric press raise the juice part slowly to avoid having pulp squirt out of cloth and onto the juice person. Using multiple juicing cloths you can prepare the second cloth while the first one is pressing. Also, some people will fold over the squashed cloth/pulp package and press it again to get a little more juice out of the pulp. 

Wash juicer after every green juice. After pressing, the remaining pulp, conveniently packaged in the juice cloth, can be discarded. The green juice is much more active than the carrot or carrot/apple juices and should be consumed immediately. Dr. Gerson did not recommend storage of the green juice for any length of time before consumption as it deteriorates rapidly.

Because pain is often part of the Big C issue, the following link addresses one option. What some people discover, is that as they use the natural health modalities, the pain goes away.

For more information on Essiac Tea visit: http://www.essiacfacts.com/

Essiac is rooted in Native American medicine, specifically, from the Ojibwe tribe in Canada. The reason we know about it today is because of a Canadian nurse named Rene Caisse. In the mid 1920′s Rene was working as head nurse at a hospital in Ontario. The story goes that one day she noticed scar tissue on an elderly patient and when she inquired about it, the woman told her it was from breast cancer, but it had been healed by a recipe given to her by an ojibwe medicine man. 

This was amazing to Rene because back then cancer was a virtual death sentence. The woman was almost 80 years old and the cancer never came back. She told Rene the names of the herbs she used. Over a year later, Rene learned that her aunt had cancer in her liver and stomach and had only a few months to live. Rene talked to Dr. R.O. Fisher, her aunt’s doctor, about the herbal tea and he agreed to try it since there was nothing else he could do for her. Rene’s aunt went on to live another 21 years after being deemed untreatable by the medical community. 

Word spread about her aunts miraculous recovery and soon, doctors were asking to try her tea on other hopeless patients. Many recovered and even among the worst cases, the tea improved their conditions enough to ease their pain and allow them to live several months longer than doctors expected. Rene went on to open a clinic where she treated thousands of people with her tea free of charge.

You would think the people in charge of our health care would be interested in this wonderful gift… And they were, but not interested in researching and administering it but in suppressing it. The Medical establishment has fought essiac since day one. It is a threat to their profits. The herbs literally grow like weeds and the tea can be made by almost anyone with a kitchen. A cheap cure for cancer shuts down a multi billion dollar industry On October 7th, 1926, 8 doctors signed a petition to the Department of Health asking that Rene be given opportunity to officially research and prove the effectiveness of this tea. 

This brought the attention of the Canadian government and started a long drawn out battle over the fate of Rene’s tea. In 1938, a bill was introduced to the Ontario congress that would allow Rene Caisse to officially practice medicine and treat patients with essiac. Along with this bill was presented a petition with over 55,000 signatures. The 59 members of parliament voted and the bill was just 3 votes shy of passing!

Part I. This video explains how to make your own Essiac tea. 
Part II. 
There are various Essiac formulas. Individual adjustments can be made with an herbalist or other natural health expert. 

What is the take away? As you can see from the videos above and below, there are many different and complementary approaches to the Big C. The Big C is a huge problem, but also a huge opportunity to learn about a more sustainable, green lifestyle. 


Once a lifestyle is changed to deal with this problem and reverse the course of the dis-ease, the lifestyle hopefully will stay with you. Because this lifestyle is more in harmony with the Earth and how Nature works, you will be living in a more green and sustainable way.  

Whether or not you choose one or more of these modalities is up to you. Whether or not you choose to use them as your PRIMARY modality and use the chemo and rads as a back up is also up to you. Pray, meditate and use your intuition about the best way to go, not fear. There are many more modalities with a self healing effect, including such things as laughter therapy, mega vitamins, mega minerals, yoga, acupuncture, ayurveda, and many more. Because time is of the essence, you will have to choose, because you cannot do them all. You also cannot learn them all, because it normally takes many years to learn about all of these modalities. 

Do what you can, build up energy to do more, and make your choices. It is your life to live as you choose, so choose wisely.

Why Are 4,000 Fukushima Peer Reviewed Studies By Elsevier, Springer And Wiley Hidden From Public View?



The big three publishing houses — Elsevier, Springer and Wiley — own most of the world’s more than 20,000 academic journals. Your taxes paid for the scientific studies that they own. 

You paid these educational institutions and student’s bills to produce them. You pay for universities to peer review them. 

But then you are not allowed to see these studies or read the studies that the public paid for. Students are not even allowed to show families anything related to these studies. 

These studies are priced out of reach at a $30 to $4,000 cost each. To make these studies happen at taxpayer expense, they costs billions a year. 

There are 3 peer review studies produced every minute, 1.6 million a year. It takes 1,000’s of days, 1000’s of man hours, unimaginable amounts in just equipment, heat, space, wages, and expendables to produce these studies. Do you know anyone that can afford to pay to just read 1 million studies once, at $30 each? 

There are 4,000 peer reviewed studies about Fukushima. To read them all just once would cost you $120,000. The equivalent would be like a children’s book published for the government with taxpayer money, but then they charge you $30 at the library to check it out for just one hour, every time you do that. If you check out 10 books so your children can read them, it would cost you $300, just to read them once.  How often would the average person use ANY library?

But once these studies are peer reviewed and published, a few corporations reap all the benefits and you get the bill. These publishing houses give nothing back. There are no kickbacks to schools  students, educational institutions or anyone else. 

They use these taxpayer funded studies to make money on every single copy sold.  You are not even allowed to own the copy after you paid for it. Does this seem right to you? 

Only the rich can afford to do scientific research.. Only the 1% get the benefits of scientific peer reviewed studies. Average people are locked out of research and science, cannot afford it and are kept in ignorance. What the public is left with is watching Faux News, which is the opposite of science and logic. 

Why bother with universities and colleges, if all of the supposed scientific progress is locked away and no one can afford to see it? Where is the public benefit? What good is coming from this for seven future generations? 

Then if activists want to fight back against a monopoly such as the nuclear industry, they cannot afford to get access to scientific peer reviewed information, so they are left with what is outside of that. As a consequence, the activists are put down by the nuclear scientists, because they have no ‘scientific peer reviewed studies’ that they are using. 

If this does not generate some feelings of anger in you, well, good luck with that one…

Fukushima Radiation Contaminated Cars From Japan Being Refused And Shipped Back By Multiple Countries



The Fukushima nuclear crisis has sent the motor industry into turmoil. Officials say all Japanese vehicles are thoroughly checked for radiation before shipment, but reports suggest that contaminated cars could still find their way into the market.


In Chile, a small number of cars out of a shipment of 2,500 Japanese cars was found to be contaminated with a ‘low’ level of radiation, but they did not disclose what that radiation level was.

The EU raised the amount of radiation by 300%, which is now deemed to be ‘safe’ in imported cars and other items coming from Japan. http://youtu.be/a9I4foG6HeA

Enformable goes into greater detail about how Russia and other countries have been dealing with this issue, or are getting ready to. Russia turned back a shipment of 50 cars in one shipment. 

Now that we have looked at some of the ‘problems’, let’s take a look at the ‘solutions’. 

The Japanese auto industry says that reports about radiation contamination on their cars is nothing more than a ‘rumor’. But they have decided on their own, just to reassure customers about Japanese car radiation safety, to check ‘ten cars per shipment’ to make sure that cars from japan are safe from radiation before shipping them overseas. 


Let’s see… a ship is full of several thousand used and new cars, and only ten of those several thousand cars are checked? This strategy sounds like the FDA or other agencies only checking 1% of food, clothing, cars or metal imports on the other end where all of those things are imported, at best.  

The radiation detector used in the Nissan video looks like a cheaper tube type of detector, which is less sensitive by orders of magnitude than a pancake style radiation detector. But without getting more information, it is hard to say..

If they both Nissan and US import control agencies agree to check the same ten cars, and then label a couple thousand as being checked for radiation, well, that makes it all so easy and gives all of those customers peace of mind, right? Just wave them all through. It also sounds like a great way to get a bunch of radioactively contaminated stuff through the pipeline, if someone really wants to unload some ‘hot’ used cars or car parts for example. 


And there are some very ‘hot’ cars in Japan, as the following links to stories show. Normally, cars are scrapped and the metal from these scrapped cars is melted down and then made into new cars. How is that going to work with highly radioactive contaminated cars in Japan?

“Just the tip of the iceberg”: Van emitting 110 uSv/hr — Ended up 370 miles from Fukushima in Kobe — “Dangerously radioactive” vehicles must be resold within Japan
http://enenews.com/just-the-tip-of-the-iceberg-van-emitting-110-usvhr-ended-up-370-miles-from-fukushima-in-kobe-dangerously-radioactive-vehicles-must-be-resold-within-japan

Almost 60 microsieverts per hour detected in vehicle at Kawasaki port, 250 km from meltdowns
http://enenews.com/almost-60-microsieverts-per-hour-detected-in-vehicle-at-kawasaki-port-250-km-from-meltdowns


Used cars with low mileage found near Fukushima are probably dirt cheap, so they can mark them way up and sell them for a huge profit margin in foreign markets. Who cares about a few ‘hot’ cars anyway? Hot metal entering the market is not a problem confined to Japan, as Russia, Europe, and the US are all dealing with this same issue, with no good solutions. 

Come to think of it, whatever happened to all of the firetrucks , bulldozers, heavy trucks and cars that were highly contaminated right after #3 blew up, spreading highly radioactive spent fuel rods and bits from the insides of a reactor over many square miles around the plant? 

At least after Chernobyl, they took all of the radiation contaminated vehicles and parked them in a no go zone, where they could just sit and rot away. Those helicopters, trucks bulldozers and armored vehicles are still there today. Obviously, the metal from those vehicles did not get into the market place. 


But in Japan, there is currently a huge amount of secrecy and coverup around just about everything nuclear and radioactive. There is no graveyard of heavily radiation contaminated cars, trucks, firetrucks or dump trucks. Where did they all go? 

Did they all get exported, and if so, where did they get exported to? Did they get melted down and made into something metal and new? Did someone scrap all of these radioactive vehicles and send the parts to somewhere else? In at least one case, car parts were tested and found to be ‘hot’, so that shipment will be returned to Japan. 

Radioactive cars from Japan turning up in Caribbean
http://amsterdamnews.com/news/2014/jan/16/radioactive-cars-japan-turning-caribbean/

What if scrapped highly radioactive vehicles are being sent to China to be made into jewelry, spoons, knives, and belt buckles? Secrecy does not work around nuclear accidents, unless the objective is to create fear and mistrust, which is what the Japanese are doing at this point. 


If you were the port authority and had to check all of these containers and everything in them for radiation by going through everything inside of them, would you do it? Would you check all 3,000 cars, or car parts, or scrap metal that is coming in on a new/used car import ship? 


What is the take away? Buy a portable pancake tube type of radiation detector and test all metal items you buy, including Japanese or Russian cars, car frames, engines, interiors metal parts, and tires. Yes, tires can be radioactive too. 

The radiation protection that a Geiger counter affords you may just save your life, and/or the lives of your kids or grandkids. Remember to also test your leased or rental equipment too, because that may be another avenue that radioactive stuff is getting out there without anyone knowing about it. 

As we found out via the above news stories, there is no 100% guarantee of safety from radiation in anything, including cars, despite the ‘best efforts’ of government, regulators, and private industry.

12 Step Pro Nuclear Trolls Recovery Program


Not many people are aware that there is an active, organized, and comprehensive disinformation war being waged online and through the mass media by pro nuclear forces, who are often paid (but not always) to do this work. 
30,000 Hackers Hired; Plan X, Covert Cyber Attacks
http://www.globalresearch.ca/us-cyber-commands-plan-x-pentagon-launching-covert-cyber-attacks/5352627

The nuclear industry goal is to disrupt, confuse and destroy any organized resistance to the nuclear power and associated nuclear military/medical or global warming deniers industry, using a variety of methods, including but not limited to outright lies, propaganda and misleading statements, psychological tricks, personal attacks, threats, intimidation, and false equivalencies, just to name a few. They actually have a playbook of 30 lies that you can study and get to know, so that you will not be deceived when they use one of these. 

30 Ways The Nuclear Industry Deceives Everyone; via @AGreenRoad 
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/03/primer-in-art-of-deception-cult-of.html

These ‘trolls’ are part of a larger pro nuclear movement, meant to deceive the public into thinking that anything nuclear is safe, green, clean and cheap, and that climate change as well as global warming does not exist (which supports the carbon monopolies too). Sadly, all of the assertions made by the nuclear and carbon industry truth deniers are lies, even if they are around the ‘next generation’ of nuclear, or clean coal, or green gas, or whatever greenwashing PR campaign they come up with next. A lot of the energy in this extremist movement is spent attacking ‘pure’ scientists who tell it exactly like it is, at great peril.. Listen to what the true scientists have to put up with..


Troll attacks on true scientists who tell the truth about what is going on.

http://www.care2.com/c2c/groups/disc.html?gpp=714&pst=1384525&saved=1

Dive further into this via the following link, or via the links below this article. Decide for yourself if they are telling the truth or not, after you listen to the ‘other’ side of the debate. 

Global Corporations And The 1%; Art And Science Of Deception
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/p/corporations-art-and-science-of.html


Watch the following video by a nuclear expert, who sums up just a couple of the lies by the nuclear industry in just a few minutes. 




Because these pro nuclear industry ‘trolls’ are immune to truth telling and seem to be addicted to lying, AGRP in cooperation and alliance with a global army of caring citizens, bloggers, scientists, medical professionals and Enenews platform, offers the following 12 step program, in the hope that at least a small number of these trolls will enter a 12 step program and get help for their addiction.  

12 Step Pro Nuclear Troll Recovery Program

1. We admit we have a problem. We admit that we are powerless about lying to protect the nuclear death machines.
2. We have come to believe that a power greater than ourselves (like the community here of wise folks) can help us regain our sanity.
3. We made a decision to turn our hearts and hands to protecting human and earth life as we understand it, and against nukes or other death dealing monopolies.
4. We made a fearless and moral inventory of ourselves and our ability to stay on track despite, huge annoying and manufactured industry lies and PR campaigns, plus threats and intimidation.
5. We admit to the community, ourselves and our pets that we fell off topic and lied to protect our (false) image.
6. We were ready to have the enenews community and other truth tellers correct us so we can go back to work telling the truth in all ways possible.
7. We humbly asked our truth tellers here to help keep us on track.
8. We made a list of the radioactive releases that negatively affected people. We also made a list of anti nuclear activists we harmed, and vowed to help them in more effective ways with on topic anti nuclear arguments…excellent links, and creative anti nuclear activism.
9. We made direct amends (to those we lied to) except when to do so would support the shills and trolls or confuse the newcomers.
10 We continue with personal inventory and when we were off topic, promptly admitted it.
11. We sought through concentration, study and practice to strengthen connection to the community of support on enenews and elsewhere so we have the wisdom and courage to spread the truth, debunk lies and make change for the better on this planet.
12. We carry this message to others and practice these (anti nuclear truth telling) principals here.

From Zogerke, With love to truthtellers in this community, reprinted with permission
What is the takeaway? Do not be discouraged by online or real world pro nuclear ‘trolls’. They are trying to make you give up, go away, stay quiet and/or convince you that the pro nuclear cult of death and Armageddon is right. 

These pro monopoly trolls (mostly paid, but sometimes not) want to convince you, that you are just a know nothing average citizen from nowhere. They want to make you believe that you have nothing of value to offer the world and that in all ways you are worse than them.  Their goal is to get you to believe that you are better off just staying home, being quiet, doing nothing, saying nothing, not voting, and letting them do whatever they want. 

Never give up and never give in to a troll, either online or in the ‘real’ world of your global community. Common sense, caring, compassion, intuition and street smarts are your strength, and they can never win as long as you hold onto these. 

Remember too, that a lie will travel halfway around the world, before the truth even gets out the door. This means that you have to travel the path less traveled in order to stay with the truth and expose the lies. You may lose supposed ‘friends’ and family members over it, but hopefully not. 

Sadly, many people believe the lies and pro nuclear propaganda, because that is just about all that is presented via the pro nuclear mass media, scientists, most doctors and researchers. So you are in good company with people like Emerson, who said; “do not go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”

28% Rise In Thyroid Problems On West Coast Since Fukushima, According To New England Journal Of Pediatrics

A report from a “Fukushima Mother: ‘Strange smell’ at start of nuclear disaster — Health of entire family has deteriorated — More people who stayed have died, more kids have leukemia and cancer — All our thyroid exams turned out totally different when tested in Tokyo (VIDEO)

[…] my son’s blood pressure had gone down to 82/50. […] [We] went to a hospital in Tokyo for thyroid examination. […] all of us had results which were totally different from the results in Fukushima [son diagnosed with thyroid adenomatous goiter and lymphadenopathy with over 10 lymph nodes involved]. When I took him to a hospital in Yamanashi, he was diagnosed with “autonomic nervous system disorder.” […] More people who remained in Fukushima are suffering from the same symptoms as mine. More people have died. There are more children who got leukemia, who began to have bloody noses and who have thyroid cancer. […]”

http://enenews.com/fukushima-mother-strange-smell-at-start-of-nuclear-disaster-health-of-entire-family-has-deteriorated-more-people-who-stayed-have-died-more-kids-have-leukemia-and-cancer-all-our-thyroid


The Fukushima mega nuclear disaster was not limited to just a local area. The radioactive Iodine, cesium, strontium, and 100 other radioactive elements went all around the world. Do you remember being warned to take some preventative iodine tablets, in order to protect your children’s thyroid from the radioactive Iodine? No? 

Well, that is par for the course, after every nuclear disaster. No one is warned, no one is evacuated and people are left to fend for themselves and figure it out, almost 100% of the time. The negative health effects and deaths are hidden, covered up and denied at just about every level in all directions, every time. Do you find this hard to believe? Research it more and see if this assertion is true or not, for yourself. 

Bottom line though, the radioactive Iodine gas that came out of Fukushima arrived in the US two to three days later, via the jetstream. Once it arrived here, the gas was inhaled by millions of people and affected them. The result? A 28% rise in thyroid problems on the West coast of the USA. Of course, the Fukushima radiation went all around the world, so if one looks at the health statistics anywhere in the Northern hemisphere, this same worsening health statistic should be visible. 
According to RT news: “Fukushima fallout appeared to affect all areas of the US, and was especially large in some, mostly in the western part of the nation,” researchers from the New York-based Radiation and Health Project wrote in a study published by the Open Journal of Pediatrics.
Children born after the 2011 meltdown of Japan’s Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant are at high risk of acquiring congenital hyperthyroidism if they were in the line of fire for radioactive isotopes. Researchers studied concentration levels of radioiodine isotopes (I-131) and congenital hypothyroid cases to make the association.
Just a few days after the meltdown, I-131 concentration levels in California, Hawaii, Alaska, Oregon and Washington were up to 211 times above the normal level, according to the study. At the same time, the number of congenital hypothyroid cases skyrocketed, increasing by an average of 16 percent from March 17 to Dec. 31, 2011. And between March 17 and June 30, shortly after the meltdown, newly born children experienced a 28 percent greater risk of acquiring hyperthyroidism.”
http://rt.com/usa/fukushima-us-children-thyroid-291/
The health effects of low dose radiation are not limited to the thyroid however. So if your child suffered some kind of problem after 3/11, it may pay to look into how and why this may have a connection to Fukushima.

Low Dose Radiation Dangers/Symptoms For Children And Adults 

2014 – US Medical Doctor Finds Elevated Levels Of Fukushima Radioactive Cesium 137 In Urine Of Patient

Alex Jones welcomes to the studio Infowars camera men Josh Owens and Glynn Trolz to discuss their experiences in California while they were investigating, to see if there is a wave of radiation striking the West Coast of the United States. 
He also talks with Glynn about radioactive Cesium 137 being found by a medical doctor with a urine test, and what he is doing to chelate the cesium 137 out of the body, using EDTA. 

The question; is this Fukushima radiation, radiation from Chernobyl, or radiation from nuclear bomb tests? More than likely the cesium came into the body through food or drink, because more than 70% of radiation enters the body that way, according to studies done around Chernobyl.

Assuming this is the case, where is the cesium in the food supply which would lead to an elevated cesium level in the urine like this? What is the total body count of cesium in Bq/kg? Ideally, the medical doctor would do a whole body count of radiation on this patient and figure out the total body burden, because the elevated urine level cannot do that.

After Chernobyl, over 300,000 children were tested using a whole body radiation counter, and many of those children were found to have elevated cesium levels. Chelation protocols were established, and the cesium was chelated out of the body.

As the world becomes more and more contaminated with radiation, and thus the food and liquid nourishment also becomes more contaminated, via the 2,400 open air nuclear bomb tests, 400 nuclear accidents, normal releases from nuclear plants, reprocessing facilities, mines, storage facilities, incineration facilities, research facilities, military labs, contaminated sites and medical centers,  it makes sense for concerned parents to pay attention to this issue. Certainly, parents around Chernobyl were FORCED to pay attention, because of the huge negative health consequences.

Radiation contamination or damage should also be something that doctors look at. Low dose radiation contamination is a potential screening issue when deciding if a health issue may be related to low dose radiation contamination from Fukushima or not.

Screening tests do exist for cesium contamination, as shown in this video. A whole body INTERNAL radiation test should be a routine health check available to health conscious consumers in the USA. 

Hopefully, this one example of an elevated cesium level is the last, but certainly, it would pay to dig in and see if this is potentially a wider health issue that may be affecting many more individuals both in the USA and in other countries.

Fukushima Released Massive Amounts of Plutonium; Being Found In Japan, The Pacific Ocean And Inside Many US Cities



High levels of plutonium were found in Japan, after the 3/11 nuclear mega disaster at Fukushima Daichi. Plutonium was found 50 kilometers away from Fukushima by a citizen monitoring group with an isotope identifier. The amount found was not due to fallout from Cold War era bombs, as TEPCO claimed.

US GOVERNMENT ADMITS PLUTONIUM RELEASED FROM FUKUSHIMA

Even the US government and a GE nuclear reactor designer plus many other credible sources have reported that plutonium was released from Fukushima. TEPCO still claims to this day that no plutonium was released, and that only hydrogen explosions happened.

FUKUSHIMA PLUTONIUM FOUND IN PACIFIC OCEAN AND INSIDE MANY USA CITIES
Plutonium was also found and measured both in the Pacific ocean and inside the USA, in many US cities, not by citizen scientists, but by the EPA and the official RADNET government radiation monitoring network. Radioactive cesium, uranium, americium and plutonium was found on an island and in many creatures and plants in Alaska, after the Fukushima mega disaster.

The plutonium was measured inside of many cities within the USA. EPA/Radnet charts clearly show plutonium being measured in the air.

Ken Buesseler (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, USA) and Michio Aoyama (Meteorological Research Institute, Japan), Aug. 4, 2012: Surface ocean in June 2011, see slightly elevated Pu -from direct discharge? -Pu removed on sinking particles, so Cs/Pu ratio increases over time (Kenna, Masque, Buesseler et al. unpublished) […] Seafloor sedimentation is small, but important sink for Cs (Pu?)

Ken Buesseler Interview on WCAI, April 13, 2011 (at 6:45 in): As we basically cool these reactors down with seawater and that seawater leaks back directly into the ocean, through discharge canals or through groundwater, that also is most likely carrying with it things like plutonium.

The animated map above shows a simulated plume of radioactive materials coming out of Fukushima and how a cloud of radioactive plutonium or cesium or iodine would look from space. Notice how the entire northern hemisphere is covered eventually. 

Arnie Gunderson, a nuclear expert how worked inside the nuclear industry for many years reported that plutonium ‘hot particles’ were being detected in the Pacific NW all the way into May 2013, and starting a few days after 3/11/11. 
Arnie Gunderson; “Very high concentrations” of hot particles in Pacific NW during April, May — Includes plutonium and americium (AUDIO)
http://enenews.com/air-seattle-loaded-hot-particles-april-very-high-concentrations-pacific-nw-different-tokyo-audio

The above picture is one example of a nano sized radioactive ‘hot’ particle.

The above picture is what a hot particle looks like inside the body, as it fries, damages, initiates cancer or mutates cells around it. This is what plutonium ‘hot particles’ do inside the body, where they end up… in the lungs, the liver, the bones, the blood, next to eggs, sperm or inside a fetus.

Seeing how the entire west coast is covered by many positive plutonium radiation detections, wouldn’t it make sense that pretty much all US cities got dosed, without any exception, especially since this went on for many months?

All US cities are downwind of these major cities; San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles, Riverside, Nome, and Guam? Even Lithuania measured Fukushima plutonium in their radiation detectors, and that is another four thousand miles downwind.

No US mass media news outlet reported on the building #3 ejection of MOX plutonium fuel. TEPCO never admitted that any plutonium was released, and neither did the major US news networks. Why not? Could the corporate controlled, corporate friendly news networks; ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, and others, really orchestrate this massive of a cover up around multiple massive melt throughs and a nuclear criticality explosion that blew fuel rods all over a several square kilometer area, including into the ocean downwind? 
The answer is yes, because covering up nuclear disasters radioactive spills is easy. The mass media has done this continually throughout the history of the atomic age. After all, radiation is invisible. This coverup of a nuclear disaster is not an exception, but rather the RULE of how nuclear disasters are covered by the news media.

The truth is NEVER told, and coverups plus denials are the NORM. Most of the accidents and spills are never even reported or shown to the public, even if they are in plain sight right next to major cities. Need proof? 

An unshielded nuclear reactor actually melted down THREE separate times in the Los Angeles area, within the Simi Valley, but no one was warned, no one was notified, and there was zero news coverage about this. Those three meltdown events released not just cesium, iodine, strontium but also the super deadly plutonium into the air, over who knows how many millions of people, and the public never heard about it.

Plutonium and other radiation or plutonium leaks, spills and accidents at US nuclear facilities are routinely covered up and lied about. Just to give you, dear reader, one small example, Hanford has released massive amounts of radioactive iodine (and plutonium) over populated US cities and leaked massive amounts of all kinds of radiation into the Columbia river, with no warning or notice to the public. Even today, the nuclear industry is still DELIBERATELY lying about plutonium leaks at Hanford.

So why would it be so hard for anyone to believe that Fukushima building #3 blew up, and that other reactors and spent fuel pools melted down, caught on fire, which resulted in the release of between 600 to 6000 pounds of plutonium, much of which went airborne?

The takeaway from all of this terrible and depressing news is that a massive amount of plutonium was released from Fukushima, and it went around the world. At least in the Northern Hemisphere, everyone breathed some hot plutonium particles into their lungs. Whether these ‘hot particles’ got stuck in the lungs or not is another question. Whether the ingested plutonium going into everyone with food and water  will pass through or be absorbed and do damage or cause deaths is another question.




Plutonium mimics iron in the body. Plutonium is both a heavy toxic metal, plus an alpha emitting, cancer/leukemia causing radioactive element, never seen before, since humans developed modern civilizations.

Time will tell what negative consequences this mega radioactive plutonium Fukushima disaster will have on all living things on Earth. But one thing is for sure, those saying that no one will die from Fukushima are either entirely ignorant about the dangers posed by plutonium, totally in very deep denial, or outright lying to your face for whatever reason.

Animated Version; Decline Of Arctic Sea Ice 1979-2013

This is an animated visualization of the startling decline of Arctic Sea Ice, showing the minimum volume reached every September since 1979, set on a map of New York with a 10km grid to give an idea of scale. It is clear that the trend of Arctic sea ice decline indicates that it’ll be ice-free for an increasingly large part of the year, with consequences for the climate.

The rate of ice loss in the Arctic is staggering. Since 1979, the volume of Summer Arctic sea ice has declined by more than 80% and accelerating faster than scientists believed it would, or even could melt.
Based on the rate of change of volume over the last 30 years, I expect the first ice-free summer day in the Arctic Ocean (defined as having less than 1 million km² of sea ice) to happen between 2016 and 2022, and thereafter occur more regularly with the trend of ice-free duration extending into August and October.
I also composed and played the piano music, “Ice Dreams”. A longer version played live can be found here:http://psc.apl.washington.edu/wordpress/research/projects/arctic-sea-ice-volume-anomaly/

The above radiation readings (unless already verified) need confirmation and verification. They should be considered to be rough, estimated, and initial pass readings. 


For those who missed it, the above is a video of Geiger Counter reading of 150 counts per minute maximum at chest level in California on the beach, taken on 12/20/2013. Dave took a reading 2 inches from the sand and got 412 CPM. Full article at http://goo.gl/bDYZvG

The Half Moon Bay (Surfer’s beach), California: 374 CPM reading verifies the 412 CPM beach sand reading above, again. The only question remaining on this beach is what causes the high radiation readings. The health dept claims the radiation is due to red plastic cutlery. Safecast reported it is due to thorium.

http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2014/01/safecast-confirmation-of-radioactive.html

The normal background radiation should be in the range of 28 to 31 CPM, so all of these radiation readings are above background radiation level and above the normal error rate. Now it is important to have someone figure out what is causing this rise in radiation levels.  

The good news is that there is now a baseline of beach sand radiation readings, so over time, citizen scientists can monitor these same beaches and compare the radiation readings in the future, to this reading. We now know that beaches from California to Oregon are not extremely radioactive. The one beach that tested ‘hot’, turned out to be from a thorium source.

What may also be important is to monitor the dried seaweed radiation levels, because it concentrates radiation, just like sea animals can. Different species will concentrate in different amounts. A lot needs to be tested because one sample can test normal and the next can test 50 Bq/kg, and the next can read 2,000 Bq/kg. Different species will show up with different amounts, so it important to test as many different types as possible to see what is going on in an area.

Unless someone tests 1,000 individual critters of all species involved (seaweed, fish, crabs, shellfish, and then do it on a monthly basis, it is hard to draw any really firm conclusions about average radiation levels in anything, or how they are changing over time. 

It is also important to understand that even ‘natural’ radiation is potentially hazardous; both radon and thorium have negative health effects. For more details on the health hazards of thorium and radon, click on the following link;

To alleviate the doubts and fears among a growing number of US citizens, it is becoming critically important for a trusted lab to do massive amounts of testing on a regular basis in this kind of situation, in order to inform the citizens about what is REALLY going on, instead of empty assurances that everything is safe on the Pacific coast, despite whole species collapsing and disappearing. 

What is really difficult to measure and hard to figure out is; what effects is the 400 to 6000 pounds of plutonium that came out of Fukushima, having on the whole ecosystem and on human beings?

Several scientists have documented that plutonium went around the world, and plutonium from Fukushima was measured in Lithuania. The Safecast equipment used above cannot measure alpha particles of plutonium. 

Even much more sophisticated and expensive equipment than what Safecast used on the beach above has a hard time finding low doses of plutonium in animals, beach sand or plants. 

We know that plutonium is present all over the world. The question is; what effect is it having? How can we track very low doses of plutonium through the food chain and ecosystems that seem to be collapsing in the Pacific ocean?

US Govt. DOE 835.206 Radiation Limits For Embryo Or Fetus; Is .OO5 Sv, .5 rem or 5 mSv/Yr


Dr. Helen Caldicott MD talks about the nuclear bomb testing fallout effects on embryos and fetuses, (via very low dose radiation effects) as well as adults in the video above.  These negative health effects continue on today, and will continue for hundreds of thousands of years into the future, according to this medical expert. 

She is predicting epidemics of disease and deaths continuing on into the future of radiation induced diseases, genetic diseases, birth deformities, and cancers, all thanks due to the nuclear age and the peaceful use of the atom, and nothing else. She calls the atomic age random premeditated genetic engineering, via a forced medical experiment that no one agreed to. 

The following video gives visual evidence of the casualties of the nuclear fallout from Chernobyl. 


Fukushima and Chernobyl ‘accidental’ radiation releases are on top of the epidemics of disease and death that she is predicting, and just makes the epidemic that much worse. 

The problem with (govt/military) plutonium and most other radiation studies is that they did not seem to focus on children, fetuses or embryos. According to Dr Caldicott, children are 20 times (to 2,000 times for fetus) more sensitive to radiation than adults, just for uranium. This makes all of the studies on adults worthless, because none of the adult studies can be applied to children or babies, much less a fetus or an egg/sperm, and the studies do not cover the effects of plutonium on the above either.

A low dose of radiation can and does cause harm via the Petkau Effect. Petkau did an an experiment with very weak radiation and found that just 0.7 rads delivered in 11½ hours (1 millirad/min = 0.61 mSv/h) ruptured a cell membrane. This was counter to the prevailing assumption of a linear relationship between total dose or dose rate and the consequences.[3] What dose of radiation (lower than this) does it take to just damage a sperm or egg, (not kill it) thus causing a DNA break or damage, which then results in a deformed child or a genetic disease?

“Considering the fact that immature, undifferentiated and rapidly dividing cells are highly sensitive to radiation, it is not surprising that embryonic and fetal tissues are readily damaged by relatively low doses of radiation. It has been shown in experiments with mice that deleterious effects may be produced with doses of only 10 rads delivered to the embryo during the period of organogenesis.”

According to the US government regulation, the following are the maximum ‘safe’ doses for a fetus or embryo: 

835.206 Limits for the embryo/fetus.(a) The equivalent dose limit for the embryo/fetus from the period of conception to birth, as a result of occupational exposure of a declared pregnant worker, is 0.5 rem (0.005 Sv).(b) Substantial variation above a uniform exposure rate that would satisfy the limits provided in § 835.206(a) shall be avoided.(c) If the equivalent dose to the embryo/fetus is determined to have already exceeded 0.5 rem (0.005 Sv) by the time a worker declares her pregnancy, the declared pregnant worker shall not be assigned to tasks where additional occupational exposure is likely during the remaining gestation period.[58 FR 65485, Dec. 14, 1993, as amended at 72 FR 31926, June 8, 2007]
§ 835.207 Occupational dose limits for minors.The dose limits for minors occupationally exposed to radiation and/or radioactive materials at a DOE activity are 0.1 rem (0.001 Sv) total effective dose in a year and 10 percent of the occupational dose limits specified at § 835.202(a)(3) and (a)(4).

According to Wikipedia; “The rem and millirem are CGS units in widest use among the American public, industry, and government.[3] SI units are the norm outside of the US, and they are increasingly encountered within the US in academic, scientific, and engineering environments. The SI unit of dose equivalent is the sievert (Sv); conversion is straightforward, as 1 Sv = 100 rem by definition:
100.0000 rem = 100000.0 mrem = 1 Sv = 1.000000 Sv = 1000.000 mSv = 1000000 µSv
1.0000 rem = 1000.0 mrem = 1 rem = 0.010000 Sv = 10.000 mSv = 10000 µSv
0.1000 rem = 100.0 mrem = 1 mSv = 0.001000 Sv = 1.000 mSv = 1000 µSv
0.0010 rem = 1.0 mrem = 1 mrem = 0.000010 Sv = 0.010 mSv = 10 µSv
0.0001 rem = 0.1 mrem = 1 µSv = 0.000001 Sv = 0.001 mSv = 1 µSv


The conventional units for dose rate is mrem/h. Regulatory limits and chronic doses are often given in units of mrem/yr or rem/yr, where they are understood to represent the total amount of radiation allowed (or received) over the entire year. In many occupational scenarios, the hourly dose rate might fluctuate to levels thousands of times higher for a brief period of time, without infringing on the annual total exposure limits. 

There is no exact conversion from hours to years because of leap years, but approximate conversions are:1 mrem/h = 8766 mrem/yr0.1141 mrem/h = 1000 mrem/yr

The ICRP once adopted fixed conversion for occupational exposure, although these have not appeared in recent documents:[4]8 h = 1 day40 h = 1 week50 week = 1 yr

Therefore, for occupation exposures of that time period,1 mrem/h = 2000 mrem/yr x 0.5 mrem/h = 1000 mrem/yr”

Violating this maximum ‘safe’ radiation exposure means that someone should be held accountable, according to Section 830.5. Civil and criminal penalties can be applied to all those responsible for violating this maximum dose to fetuses and children.

In the video above, the casualty rate of infants in the US is discussed, as a direct result of invisible, uncontrolled Fukushima radiation releases. The expert above estimates an additional 17,000 babies were killed, while the study below estimates an additional 50,000 deaths of newborns, just in the 3 months following Fukushima.

Fukushima Caused An Additional 50,000 USA Newborn Deaths 3/11 to 12/11; via @AGreenRoad
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2013/12/fukushima-caused-50000-additional-usa.html

Where did these casualties come from, if the ‘official’ pro nuclear estimates and charts show that no deaths should have happened, because the radiation doses were too low to cause any deaths or health problems in anyone? 

The problem with the above ‘official’ charts and tables is that none of them apply to hot particles next to an egg, sperm or a fetus in the first two weeks of pregnancy. All of the studies focus on fetuses older than this. Fetuses older than two weeks are less sensitive to radiation due to cells dividing less rapidly. No studies have been done on ‘hot’ particles affecting eggs or sperm, and no studies have been done on very young fetuses, under 2 weeks of age.  “Irradiation may produce true genetic mutations in the immature germ cells of the fetus for which no threshold dose has been established.”

http://www.ehs.washington.edu/rsotrain/radprotectionprinciples/biological_effects.pdf


In the one study done on moms who received an XRay (external radiation only) of the lower abdomen (thus exposing only the eggs and not the sperm before conception), it appears that there was a statistically significant increase in leukemia risk among children whose mothers had received diagnostic x-rays during this period. 
http://www.ehs.washington.edu/rsotrain/radprotectionprinciples/biological_effects.pdf


There is a huge difference between an alpha particle outside the body, an X-Ray, and a ‘hot’ alpha plutonium particle right next to or inside of a fertilized cell or set of cells. Go to minute 35 in the following podcast to listen to Arnie Gunderson explain how a ‘hot’ particle affects cells around it. 
http://podcast.gcnlive.com/podcast/power_hr/0116143.mp3

Thus, for example, a given amount of energy absorbed in the form of 15 keV neutrons should be assumed to produce 10 times the damage caused by an equal amount of energy absorbed as X-rays or gamma rays.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Relative_biological_effectiveness

Nuclear experts also deny or ignore the ‘weighting’ factor’, which means that external radiation such as an Xray is much less harmful than internal radiation from an alpha particle for example. As the chart shows above, the weighting factor for an alpha particle is 20 times that of an X-ray, dose for dose. 

Now add on top of that 20 times worse factor for a hot plutonium alpha radiation particle, the fact that the sperm or egg is right next to the plutonium particle or maybe even has it inside of itself, when it gets fertilized and divides rapidly. What do you think this intense 20 times more dangerous than an X-ray for an extremely rapidly dividing cell means? We still have not even touched the heavy metal toxicity and mutagenic quality of the plutonium, and this is added on top of that DNA alpha radiation breaking effect.

http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2013/09/plutonium-mimics-iron-in-body-2-million.html

Bottom line, what all of this this means, is that the ‘official’ computer calculations by the ‘experts’ showing no deaths or injuries caused by low dose radiation are completely bogus and flawed, because they are based on flawed and bogus assumptions which are then fed into computers, which spit out bad estimates. Garbage in = garbage out.

The government chart and nuclear expert estimates DO NOT apply to the mom before conception, or to early stage pregnancy, or to egg/sperm cells exposed to a a ‘hot’ plutonium particle right next to them, for example, nor do they study the effect of plutonium on eggs, sperm or the fetus specifically. Plutonium is considered much more toxic than uranium, because it has never existed before on Earth and is entirely man made. There are no studies about this specifically.

X-rays by comparison to plutonium, uranium, strontium, iodine, xenon or any other man made element are completely harmless, because they pass through the body and do not stay. These various 100 plus radioactive elements coming out of a nuclear accident and then going into the egg, sperm or pre two week old fetus are orders of magnitude more dangerous; that is where the 50,000 deaths come from. Why is this so hard to understand among the pro nuclear industry folks? Why do the ‘experts’ keep insisting no one died, and no one will die from Fukushima, when the statistics and body count show the exact opposite, despite all of the coverups? 

Some experts estimate that the effect of a hot radioactive particle such as plutonium located right next to or inside of a sperm, egg, or on a pre 2 week old fetus may be up to 2 million times more dangerous than the equivalent radiation dose to a healthy adult male. Would you estimate any different risk when combining the risks of plutonium high energy alpha radiation AND heavy metal toxicity, inside or next to a cell such as an egg, sperm or just fertilized egg? 

Quotes From Famous People About Nuclear Energy And Low Dose Radiation Dangers; via @AGreenRoad
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2013/07/quotes-from-famous-people-about-nuclear.html



Bottom line, according to the above quoted nuclear experts, medical doctors and other scientists, there is no safe dose of radiation, and all radiation dosages are cumulative. The pro nuclear experts can argue all they want about how ‘safe’ nuclear power is, but people keep on dying from even the ‘natural’ radioactive elements such as radon and thorium, which humans have been exposed to for millions of years. 

How much more toxic and dangerous is plutonium on a cellular level, when humans have never seen it before in human history? Could it be that the effect of plutonium is much like diseases brought over by ‘settlers’ on American Indians? Those diseases were never seen before, and in most areas, up to 90% or more of those Indians exposed to those diseases died. We will all get to see what happens, because billions of people got exposed to nano hot particles of plutonium from Fukushima, and breathed them in.

This article will explore why the Price Anderson Act, which is portrayed by the pro nuclear industry as a paragon of virtue and safety of all things nuclear, is actually the very worst idea imaginable, for many reasons.

WHAT IS THE PRICE ANDERSON ACT?

When the Price Anderson Act was first passed, it was supposed to be only a temporary aide to help the new nuclear industry prosper and grow, while addressing concerns about it’s safety and risk. 

http://www.citizen.org/documents/Price%20Anderson%20Factsheet.pdfhttp://www.citizen.org/Page.aspx?pid=2117

According to the pro nuclear ‘experts’, the Price-Anderson Act is what brings nuclear regulation to any nuclear activity. But the net effect of this seemingly ‘good’ law, is that it allows the nuclear industry to get away with pushing all of their liabilities and risks onto the taxpayers, while also getting unlimited corporate welfare (that will go on forever and ever) from taxpayers at the same time. How does this nuclear shell game of hiding risks and transferring costs to you the taxpayer work specifically? 

PR ACT LIMITS LIABILITY TO NUCLEAR INDUSTRY, SHIFTS UNLIMITED RISKS AND COSTS TO TAXPAYERS

The Price-Anderson limits the liability costs of any manufacturers or operator of any nuclear reactor to a paltry $10 to 12.5 Billion, out of which the utilities and lawyers get paid first, in case of a mega nuclear radiation disaster happening. This fund is paid for by all nuclear plants. Actually, it is the ratepayers who use nuclear power, that pay for this fund, not the nuclear power companies. A full blown nuclear mega disaster such as Fukushima has been estimated to cost between 1 – 10 TRILLION dollars, not a 12.5 Billion. For more on this, follow this link; 

http://www.citizen.org/cmep/article_redirect.cfm?ID=10322

Only a small fraction of the risk is being covered, and the public is left naked and exposed to all of the risk that the nuclear industry creates. After Fukushima, the taxpayers picked up the tab and are still paying through the nose to try and handle that mega nuclear disaster. There is no way that TEPCO is ever going to ‘pay back’ the taxpayers.

This is roughly the same situation in any country that experiences a nuclear disaster.

YOUR LIFE IS WORTH 6 MILLION LESS IN CASE OF A NUCLEAR PLANT MELTDOWN, WHY IS THAT?

rogerthat December 12, 2014  Your Life Is Worth $6 Million Less in a Nuclear Meltdown
By Jonathan Tirone Dec 11, 2014 Bloomberg
If you wrap your new car around a tree beside the interstate, the U.S. government values your life at $9 million. If you’re at risk from a nuclear accident, you’re priced at just $3 million.
Those are the figures the U.S. Transportation Department and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission use when considering safety upgrades for highways or nuclear power plants. Their methods compare the cost of improvements with the number of lives potentially saved. …The theoretical value of a human life is a key part of the U.S. rulebook, which effectively caps how much money power companies can be forced to spend on safety upgrades.
“Using this low value has a significant effect on nuclear plant license renewals and new reactor approvals,” said Ed Lyman, a Washington-based physicist at the Union of Concerned Scientists. “Nuclear plants are not required to add safety systems that the NRC deems too expensive for the value of the lives they could save.” …
Of course, the renewable energy industry has no such issues, because wind plants, solar panels and geothermal plants don’t melt down, blow up and spread radioactive poisons around the planet and contaminate tens of thousands of square miles with invisible toxic radiation. 

RENEWABLE ENERGY INDUSTRY NEEDS NO PRICE ANDERSON ACT AND DOES NOT MELT DOWN, CAUSING 10 TRILLION IN DAMAGES

Wind, solar, geothermal, and other renewable electricity providers do not need a Price Anderson Act or legal immunity from lawsuits. This basic and simple fact should tell energy consumers something all by itself. If you had a choice of two contractors and one said that they were immune to all lawsuits and you had to pay them extra to cover the huge financial risk and losses caused by their ‘special’ kind of work and you were going to get a bill for the next 1 million years to clean up after them and their toxic radioative garbage that they are going to leave with you, and the other contractor had no such requirement or radioactive garbage, which one would you go with?

MILITARY/NUCLEAR INDUSTRY ALSO GOT IMMUNITY FROM MOST LAWSUITS, ON TOP OF PRICE ANDERSON ACT

To even become financial feasible, the nuclear industry got immunity from all lawsuits due to the Price-Anderson Act. This legal immunity opened Pandora’s Box of horrors, because it allowed the manufacturers, such as GE to build very cheap, poorly engineered, unsafe, unreliable, and defective reactors. After all, the public was taking all the risk, so why bother to make them safe and well engineered? There was no more downside to putting unsafe shoddy reactors out there when there is no lawsuit possible and the public is paying for all damages caused by shoddy, defective or poorly designed products.
Bottom line, if a nuclear power company knows that they will only risk a maximum of $121,255,000 per reactor in case something ‘bad’ happens, this artificial cap on losses acts as an incentive to cut corners, approve shoddy work, use cheaper reactors, unsafe designs and poor safety practices once they are operating. If a nuclear accident happens, the taxpayers, not the nuclear power utility, would suffer the largest damages and losses.

LLC STRUCTURE THAT ALL NUCLEAR PLANTS ARE INSIDE OF LIMITS DAMAGES TO SMALL PART OF PARENT CORPORATION

Every nuclear reactor now is put into an LLC, (a liability limiting form of corporation) which also limits losses even further, because the nuclear reactor is it’s own corporation, separate from the larger utility company that owns it. Any and all losses due to a mega disaster or ‘accident’ are limited to that reactor, and do not extend to the nuclear utility that owns it and controls the profits. Any losses and liability beyond the paltry sum above, do not extend to GE, the manufacturer, the builders, the engineers involved in designing it, or the operators. In effect the law makes sure that no one is held responsible for mega nuclear disasters that can kill millions or billions of people.

GE WARNED BY ENGINEERS THAT MARK IV DESIGN IS DEFECTIVE

GE was warned by their own engineers that the Mark IV reactor design was too small to contain the dynamic loads in a nuclear accident, which would result in a catastrophic nuclear mega disaster in case something went wrong. 
Fukushima used those GE reactors, and exactly what the engineers predicted would happen, did happen there. Those engineers felt so strongly about this defective design, that they quit their jobs rather than continue working on them and building them. GE went ahead anyway, because at least on paper, these cheap reactors would compete with coal, in terms of price. Yet, despite GE building a known defective reactors that FAILED catastrophically, they are not even mentioned in any lawsuits around Fukushima.

WHO IS GE, AND WHO IS CONNECTED TO THIS COMPANY? 

Who is GE, and who is connected to it?
http://www.muckety.com/General-Electric-Company/5000769.muckety

Would it be any surprise that the Koch name is included in the list?

24 OF THESE DANGEROUS REACTORS ARE LOCATED IN THE USA

There are 24 of these very dangerous Mark I type GE built reactors in the USA. A leading pro nuclear scientist has even come out on a mass media news site and admitted that nuclear plants are dangerous, error prone and we don’t know the true extent of the Fukushima disaster yet. 
Congress was sold a line of bull hucky when the nuclear industry lobby pushed lawmakers to pass the Price Anderson Act. The nuclear industry and military industrial complex told the politicians who knew nothing about the dangers of radiation or the genetic effects on fetuses and children of low doses of what would come out of any reactor, that the nuclear industry just needed a small hand up and some legal protections ‘for a little while’, in order to get the industry on it’s feet. 
The corporate welfare entitlements and welfare payments have been so large to this monopolistic and predatory nuclear industry, that taxpayers could have gotten FREE electricity for this whole time, and taxpayers not have to deal with the nuclear waste issue or the health effects of radiation at all, for the cost of what the nuclear power, nuclear military and nuclear waste industry has received up to this point.

Nuclear Power Is EXPENSIVE, Dirty, Dangerous, Global Warming And Toxic, Even More So AFTER Decommissioning; via @AGreenRoad
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/10/nuclear-power-expensive-dirty-dangerous.html

NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS WERE NEVER NEEDED, AND ARE NOT NEEDED NOW

What the public and politicians do not understand is that nuclear power was never needed. Nuclear power reactors were just an ‘excuse’ to get the plutonium that they generate for the military industrial complex, which needed the plutonium to build nuclear bombs. Without nuclear reactors, it would be too expensive to get the plutonium with the military footing the bill entirely, so the public had to be convinced to pay for all of it, so the military could get the plutonium for free. 
The nuclear propaganda campaign was waged under the ‘Atoms For Peace’ campaign. The success of this propaganda war saw the adoption of nuclear power for all kinds of things that are not needed and have too many negative side effects, when much safer and less toxic alternatives exist. 
Without huge sums of money from the largest banks, the nuclear power industry could not exist. JPMorgan was involved, and it became the largest shareholder in GE. GE was created out of a merger between Thompson Houston Company and Edison Electric, headed by Charles A. Coffin.

CA COFFIN RESPONSIBLE FOR PRICE ANDERSON ACT, NO INVESTOR WILL PUT MONEY INTO BUILDING A NEW NUCLEAR PLANT

C. A. Coffin was one of the prime architects of the Price Anderson liability protection scheme. This law granted legal immunity to the whole monopoly, because they could build unlimited numbers of nuclear reactors, while facing absolute no financial liability for the mega nuclear disasters that the nuclear industry is guaranteed to create all around the world.
In Japan, all insurance was cancelled after the Fukushima mega nuclear disaster. Now Japan is trying to get them all restarted, but they have to do it with no insurance. Thus, they will be forced to restart them ‘naked’, without any insurance at all.

JEREMY RIFKIN SPEAKS OUT ON NUCLEAR POWER



Jeremy Rifkin explains how no one in their right mind would invest in nuclear power, and that it is a guaranteed money losing investment. So why is the public footing the bill for a money losing, toxic, expensive, public health hazard?
So the net effect of Price Anderson was that the nuclear industry shifted all liability and risks to the taxpayer (meaning you the reader), while keeping and guaranteeing profits for failing and succeeding at anything nuclear they did. They get paid by taxpayers to build the plant, operate the plant, and to decommission the plant. In case of ‘accidents’ they also get paid, even more than usual, because no one else wants to clean up their mess.

NET EFFECT OF PRICE ANDERSON ACT IS THAT IT MAKES FAILURE PROFITABLE

The net effect of Price Anderson is that the nuclear industry gets paid to fail, over and over again, while they get to pocket all of the profits and run. The pro nuclear crowd actually makes more money after failing and creating disasters than they do when successfully generating power. The public is literally held hostage by the nuclear industry, and forced to fork over Trillions of dollars when things go wrong, with no one punished or held accountable. The government is forced to get involved and pay for all clean up after a nuclear disaster, which means in effect, that the taxpayer (you) pays the bill. 
Without the Price Anderson legal immunity, there would be no nuclear power business. No investor will touch nuclear anything without taxpayers taking all of the risks. Without bankers and financial investment companies, steering huge amounts of money from pension funds and investors into uranium mines, many of which end up being capital losses, the nuclear industry could not succeed.

THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY IS A MONEY LOSING BUSINESS, ADDICTED TO ENTITLEMENTS AND CORPORATE WELFARE

The nuclear reactor business is a money losing business from start to finish. NO INVESTOR will invest money in a nuclear reactor, because it is a radioactive, money losing black hole with no bottom to it. You, the taxpayer will just keep being forced to pour never ending amounts of money into it, first to build these plants and weapons, then to guarantee the loans, then to ‘subsidize’ the weapons and plants with corporate welfare payments, then to pay for decommissioning plants and dismantling weapons, then to pay for waste disposal, then to guard the toxic, radioactive waste for a million years, and on top of that to pay for any accidents, spills, etc. Solar, wind, geothermal, tides, and other renewables suffer from none of these ‘annoyances’. 
It all gets worse from here.. In case of some spill or toxic leftover, the nuclear industry also transferred all costs and responsibility through the SuperFund Cleanup law to taxpayers as well. The Superfund was started with good intentions, making companies responsible for cleaning up toxic waste that they left behind or created. 
But over time, the corporations have steadily been transferring the cost and responsibility to taxpayers, so that by this point, they pay only a small fraction of the cost, with taxpayers paying for almost ALL of the radioactive waste cleanup costs at places like Hanford and dozens of other radioactive or chemical contaminated sites all over the nation. Of course, they hide this from you, the taxpayer, by not including this in the ‘costs’ of nuclear power, thus making it look cheap and affordable. They also do not include the hidden healthcare costs that exposure to low dose radiation creates, and that too, is paid for by you, the taxpayer.

NUCLEAR INDUSTRY BUILT ON MAFIA TYPE OPERATIONS

Going further down the nuclear radiation rabbit hole, the whole nuclear industry seems to built on corruption, bribes, kickbacks and mafia type connections, threats, intimidation, media control and coverups, in Japan, Europe and in the US. 


8.5 TRILLION DOLLARS ARE MISSING AT PENTAGON, BUT NO ONE IS ACCOUNTABLE

Over 8.5 TRILLION is missing and unaccounted for at the Pentagon. Much of this money went into the monopolistic nuclear weapons and power industry through the back door of the military industrial complex. This ‘slush fund’ of a Niagara Falls of money supports the hidden, secret, and black funds that keep nuclear power and nuclear weapons in place, despite public opposition.

NUCLEAR CORRUPTION AT UNIVERSITIES AND COLLEGES IS EPIDEMIC

The nuclear industry is promoting new policies based on falsified data. This very poorly designed study manufactures data that completely ignores many human low dose radiation studies showing harm from extremely low doses of radiation. In effect, MIT has made public evacuation ‘optional’ in case of nuclear accidents. What would a medical doctor say in response to such as ‘fake’ and bogus study, which ignores the global body of medical science out there already, proving harm from low dose radiation?

Via Socrates October 8, 2014  “The Cooper v. TEPCO lawyers (Paul Garner) filed a petition in federal court in San Diego to name GE, Toshiba and Hitachi. A suit was filed in New York naming GE among other defendants. Other cases are under consideration and investigation at the present moment. As the damages mount, as with the BP Gulf spill, people will seek to assign blame and obtain compensation for their injuries. The nuclear industry has legislation and “conferences” on nuclear liability to protect itself as early as 1957. Proving causation is usually impossible. Has anyone’s physician told then that their cancer was more likely than not to a reasonable medical probability from Fukushima?” 
Via Socrates October 8, 2014  “Epidemiology usually goes first in mass torts. Pathologists can examine genetics, histology, and other characteristics of a tumor. Gradually, the evidence mounts. Asbestos and tobacco litigation took fifty to sixty years of appeals. The asbestos fiber causes fibrosis and mesothelioma while fertilizers used in tobacco contains Polonium 210.
There are many legal barriers to suing for events in a foreign country. Judge Sammartino heard TEPCO’S Motion to Dismiss back on August 25th. I was there with several other lawyers who flew in, in addition to the plaintiffs’ lawyers. TEPCO argued that all roads lead through the US Military and that the court has no power to second guess the military. Courts do not interfere with most military decisions. The Motion to Dismiss is 70 pages long. I disagree with many of the arguments by TEPCO but await the ruling. The ruling has a greater importance to non-military litigants.
I was a downwinder in Nevada practically from birth on. I do not see how boomers could have stopped the madness of MAD or the peaceful atom. Many tried. The Beatnics and hippies did all they could. The Cold War was all-consuming in American politics. You could be accused of being a “pinko commie symp” at the drop of a hat. There was so much propaganda that people built bomb shelters and welcomed a nuclear arsenal. That’s how we got to where we are now.”

DEMOCRACY AND NUCLEAR INDUSTRY

Socrates October 8, 2014  …”Arnie Gundersen’s statement that his website was under attack possibly because of his work at SONGS. What are (were) they hiding? Arnie asked. We know the answer now. The gangster tricks are amazing. We are living in a very dangerous situation because the stakes could not be higher – we are struggling to survive while inherently dangerous industries are struggling to conceal environmental dangers. CONG – coal, oil, nuclear and gas – all wrecking the environment, yet there seems to be no way or political will to stop the environmental disasters wrought by our energy policies and practices. Humanity is really out on a limb and sawing that limb as fast as it can.

93 Lies that the nuclear industry parades out every time someone has a concern.

NUCLEAR RADIATION FALLOUT SHELTERS ALL DISMANTLED, EVACUATION NOW OPTIONAL, IN CASE OF MAJOR NUCLEAR ACCIDENT

On another front; have you ever wondered why there are no more nuclear fallout shelters, supplies, meters or emergency responders trained to deal with a nuclear disaster or low dose radiation exposure? Hint; they cost money and expose the hazard of the nuclear power industry, so all of this was gotten rid of many years ago. Emergency civilian responders are not even trained in or know anything about low level radiation hazards of nuclear energy, much less what to if an accident happens. There are no radiation meters out there among the civilian emergency responder networks.

Civilians are now on their own, with no help, no shelter, no financial protections, no legal options, and no emergency response possible. In effect, MIT and other nuclear industry funded colleges and universities like this one, serve as lapdogs to promote nuclear energy, while they also assist and support the dismantling of all public protections against radiation exposure, by calling everything safe, or not harmful, after an accident happens.

MIT PUBLISHED STUDY SAYING EVACUATION NOT NEEDED IN CASE OF NUCLEAR ACCIDENTS

MIT published the study that concluded falsely that evacuation was not needed in case of nuclear accidents. This is much like the IAEA being a promoter and marketer of nuclear power, but also pretending to be a ‘regulator’, much like the NRC. MIT gets a lot of funding from the nuclear industry or the Dept of Energy, which is also a huge promoter of nuclear everything.
What is the take away? Bottom line, the Price Anderson Act is like a get out of jail free card. No matter how many millions and potentially billions of people get cancer and/or are killed, the nuclear industry is not held responsible for any of it. What else can you call this, but corporate sponsored and controlled fascism?

The Corrupt Price Anderson Act, JPMorgan, GE, Edison Electric, And Thompson Houston Corp. Connection


In this article we will explore why the Price Anderson Act, which is portrayed by the pro nuclear industry as a paragon of virtue and safety of all things nuclear, is actually the very worst idea imaginable, for many reasons. 

According to the pro nuclear ‘experts’, the Price-Anderson Act is what brings nuclear regulation to any nuclear activity. But the net effect of this seemingly ‘good’ law, is that it allows the nuclear industry to get away with pushing all of their liabilities and risks onto the taxpayers, while also getting unlimited corporate welfare (that will go on forever and ever) from taxpayers at the same time. How does this nuclear shell game of hiding risks and transferring costs to you the taxpayer work specifically?

The Price-Anderson limits the liability costs of any manufacturers or operator of any nuclear reactor to a paltry $10 to 12.5 Billion, out of which the utilities and lawyers get paid first, in case of a mega nuclear radiation disaster happening. This fund is paid for by all nuclear plants. Actually, ratepayers who use nuclear power pay for this, not the nuclear power companies.  A full blown nuclear mega disaster such as Fukushima has been estimated to cost between 1 – 10 TRILLION dollars, not a 12.5 Billion.

Wind, solar, geothermal, and other renewable electricity providers do not need a Price Anderson Act or legal immunity from lawsuits, which should tell consumers something all by itself. 

To even become financial feasible, the nuclear industry got immunity from all lawsuits due to the Price-Anderson Act. This legal immunity opened the gates of Hell, because it allowed the manufacturers, such as GE to build very cheap, poorly engineered, unsafe, unreliable, and defective reactors. After all, the public was taking all the risk, so why bother to make them safe and well engineered? There was no more downside to putting unsafe shoddy reactors out there. 


Bottom line, if a nuclear power company knows that they will only risk a maximum of $121,255,000 per reactor in case something ‘bad’ happens, this artificial cap on losses acts as an incentive to cut corners, approve shoddy work, use cheaper reactors, unsafe designs and poor safety practices once they are operating. If a nuclear accident happens, the taxpayers, not the nuclear power utility, would suffer the largest damages and losses.

Every nuclear reactor now is put into an LLC, (a liability limiting form of corporation) which also limits losses even further, because the nuclear reactor is it’s own corporation, separate from the larger utility company that owns it. Any and all losses due to a mega disaster or ‘accident’ are limited to that reactor, and do not extend to the nuclear utility that owns it and controls the profits. Any losses and liability beyond the paltry sum above, do not extend to GE, the manufacturer, the builders, the engineers involved in designing it, or the operators. In effect the law makes sure that no one is held responsible for mega nuclear disasters that can kill millions or billions of people. 


GE was warned by their own engineers that the Mark IV reactor design was too small to contain the dynamic loads in a nuclear accident, which would result in a catastrophic nuclear mega disaster in case something went wrong. 


Fukushima used those GE reactors, and exactly what the engineers predicted would happen, did happen there. Those engineers felt so strongly about this defective design, that they quit their jobs rather than continue working on them and building them.  GE went ahead anyway, because at least on paper, these cheap reactors would compete with coal, in terms of price. 

There are 24 of these very dangerous reactors exist in the USA. A leading pro nuclear scientist has even come out on a mass media news site and admitted that nuclear plants are dangerous, error prone and we don’t know the true extent of the Fukushima disaster yet.

Congress was sold a line of bull hucky when the nuclear industry lobby pushed lawmakers to pass the Price Anderson Act. The nuclear industry and military industrial complex told the politicians who knew nothing about the dangers of radiation or the genetic effects on fetuses and children of low doses of what would come out of any reactor, that the nuclear industry just needed a small hand up and some legal protections ‘for a little while’, in order to get the industry on it’s feet. 


Well, the corporate entitlements and welfare payments have been so large to this monopolistic and predatory nuclear industry, that taxpayers could have gotten FREE electricity for this whole time, and taxpayers not have to deal with the nuclear waste issue or the health effects of radiation at all, for the cost of what the nuclear power, nuclear military and nuclear waste industry has received up to this point. 
What the public and politicians do not understand is that nuclear power was never needed. Nuclear power reactors were just an ‘excuse’ to get the plutonium that they generate for the military industrial complex, which needed the plutonium to build nuclear bombs. Without nuclear reactors, it would be too expensive to get the plutonium with the military footing the bill entirely, so the public had to be convinced to pay for all of it, so the military could get the plutonium for free. 
The nuclear propaganda campaign was waged under the ‘Atoms For Peace’ campaign. The success of this propaganda war saw the adoption of nuclear power for all kinds of things that are not needed and have too many negative side effects, when much safer and less toxic alternatives exist. 
Without huge sums of money from the largest banks, the n
