Depleted Uranium (DU) Dangers And Effects On The Human Body

Epidemiologist Dr. Rosalie Bertell PhD explains what depleted uranium (DU)  is. She talks about the effects of the weaponized DU on the people of Iraq and the planet. Depleted uranium (DU) has a 4.5 billion year half life, so it continues to persist in the environment, contaminating people and the environment for at least 40 billion years before becoming something else. 
Over 400 TONS of DU dust was spread all over the Gulf, and many of the US soldiers and airmen were exposed to this poison.
.
Depleted Uranium Part I 
You cannot see it, smell it, or taste DU, compared to just normal dust floating in the air. 
When DU shells hit a target, they burn and release uranium dust and uranium gas nano particles. The uranium gas nano particles travel long distances. The DU dust is thrown out of the explosion, and spreads out from there to large distances. The DUE dust can be stirred up and blown around by wind, once it settles back down to the ground. 
In this video they talk about heavy metal poisoning, plus radiation poisoning that soldiers and civilians get from DU. The military says today that DU dust is safe and needs no special handling. They say it can safely be eaten. But the studies done by neutral third party scientists, doctors and other researchers universally seem to point in the opposite direction and find that DU is highly radioactive, dangerous to health as well as to the environment. 
The director of the DU Cleanup project led a team into Iraq to clean up a few of the DU contaminated sites. His whole team is now either very sick or dead. Even the project manager tests high for DU contamination.  They get no help, no compensation, and all appeals for compensation (such as for Agent Orange vets) were denied, according to the director himself. He says that the military covers up and denies the danger of DU to the troops themselves, including his team. 
Depleted Uranium Part II 
A medical doctor talks about the pressure he got from the military to STOP his research on DU effects on soldiers. He said his career and his physical well being was threatened by the military. He explains that there are sixteen isotopes of uranium, and that any of them can create negative changes in DNA, tissues, organs and the entire animal. This doctor pursued his research anyway, despite the threats and intimidation.
As part of his research, he has found U -236 (DU) in high amounts in soldiers. He found evidence that all four uranium isotopes are present in body fluids and organs among those soldiers that are in his program. He is curious how the military will come up with more lies around this, to try and explain all of this away. 
This video section also talks about how DU breathed in or eaten is deposited in kidneys, liver, testicles and other parts of the body, resulting in higher rates of cancer and genetic mutation. 
It is common for civilians and soldiers who are exposed to DU, to be diagnosed with thyroid problems, muscle problems, kidney problems, neurological problems and cancer. This complex of a whole variety of symptoms is commonly called Gulf War Syndrome. 
We went back to tanks that were left out in the desert from many years ago in the first Gulf war. We took a Geiger Counter and measured high levels of radiation; alpha, gamma radiation from depleted uranium, all around the tanks that were destroyed with DU shells.
The earth, air and water have also all been contaminated by DU. Over one million civilians have died due to the Gulf War. The cancer rates are ten times higher than before the war. Many children are born with deformities. The military says this is all ‘normal’.  

Depleted Uranium Part III 
Medical researchers found that depleted uranium DU is responsible for these high rates of deformities and cancers. Bone cancers, brain tumors, birth defects and more are all common. There is no help from the military. There is no medical care for these victims from DU weapons, even in the United States. In the US, we have developed and use a sophisticated weapons system, but we have no interest or the means to take care of the health problems that will continue for BILLIONS OF YEARS. 
The military says that all of these health problems and deformities among babies are ‘normal’. Even US military soldiers’ children have these same problems, but again the military said there are just ‘normal’ health issues among soldiers. It is common for babies of DU exposed soldiers to be born with no arms, no legs, with hands sticking straight out of the shoulders, as well as having other problems.
Soldiers cannot sue the government or the military for harm caused from DU or for anything else for that matter, (otherwise they would quickly go out of business).  It is very expensive to treat and care for children that are deformed.


They ONLY way that these soldiers can get help for these children is to stay in the military. They also cannot complain or make noise about this situation, or their benefits are cut off. No one will insure a child with a ‘pre-existing’ condition. 
In the second Gulf War, they took a fragment of a bomb in downtown Baghdad, and it was found to be radioactive after it was tested in Germany. This proves that DU weapons were used in downtown civilian areas. 
The global military industrial complex wants to profit from selling more DU weapons systems and ammunition. DU weapons are now a staple in the arms business around the world, and their use is spreading, which means the whole world is being contaminated for BILLIONS of years. (Each war will add to the contaminated zones and add more children that will be born with problems, plus add to the number of civilians and soldiers exposed to this deadly poison, that lasts forever.)
Depleted Uranium Part IV
Since the Gulf War, DU weapons have been used in Bosnia and Kosovo, as well as Yugoslavia. No one knows what is radioactive, or what was used to destroy armored vehicles or buildings. Neither NATO nor the US Defense Dept. will reveal where DU weapons have been used, or how much was used. They all say this is ‘classified’ information. 
They also claim that RAND did a study that found DU weapons were ‘safe’. To do this ‘study’ RAND searched and found a few studies that had more or less positive outcomes in the uranium mining industry (which has nothing to do with DU made from nuclear waste products). 


They ignored a HUGE pile of studies that found uranium has negative effects on human health, from all around the world. This ‘positive’ conclusion is now the ‘official’ result of ALL of the science globally, according to the military industrial complex, which largely owns Congress and the Senate, as well as the White House. 
In the video, one researcher found unusual bullets and shells on the battle field, and became suspicious. He saw children playing with what turned out to be DU bullets. These children later died of leukemia. Before they died, they got ulcers that were not painful. These DU bullets were measured and put out 11 mSieverts per hour. Conventional DU bullets cannot be this radioactive, according to the military. But the radiation detector does not lie. This may be what millions of children are playing with all around the world, where DU dust is present. I wonder why the cancer rates are skyrocketing worldwide for children? Why are there now whole hospitals set up just to treat children with cancer worldwide? This used to be unknown, or VERY rare.. Now it seems like an every day occurence. 
Two companies were paid to clean up a small amount of DU contamination Kuwait. It took three years to clean up 24 DU contaminated vehicles that were sitting out in the desert. They had to use special toxic waste clothing, special preparations and used high level toxic waste disposal methods. It took three years and cost millions of dollars to dispose of these few vehicles safely, without putting more people into harm’s way. 
Thousands of contaminated DU dust filled tanks and DU shells, bullets and bomb fragments are still sitting everywhere, in many countries, including where children play. Who is going to pay to clean up this mess that will last for 40 BILLION years, if no one cleans it up?


Poison DUst: Depleted Uranium Kills


Dr. Michio Kaku goes into details around DU dangers. He explains it very well. 

“US soldiers are returning from Iraq to die of “mysterious” ailments – and the depleted uranium (DU) poisoning scandal just won’t go away, despite efforts to cover it up. Protesters in New Haven spoke out against the U.S. military’s use of DU, its effects on US troops, and cutbacks in veterans’ medical benefits. 


The DU test costs $1,000, so the U.S. government won’t test for DU poisoning. “More than 240,000 Gulf War veterans are on permanent medical disability and more than 11,000 are dead. They have been denied testing, medical care, and compensation for depleted uranium exposure and related illnesses since 1991,” say reports. 


A U.S. government study found that 67% of post-Gulf War babies have serious birth defects or serious illnesses. In Italy, eight soldiers home from Iraq died of cancer, probably caused by DU exposure. Today, Italy proposed new legislation to censor media covering the military. The new law would bar any reporting on the health effects of depleted uranium. Anyone who breaks the law could face up to 20 years in a military prison, including civilians. You thought they came home safely from the war.”
http://truth-tv.org

In my view, manmade uranium fuel generated dust and gas is dangerous to human health, no matter where it comes from. Whether the source of uranium nano dust is from a nuclear meltdown and/or explosion, such as Fukushima, or DU dust from depleted uranium weapons, it kills.. 


Nuclear weapons, including DU shells, bombs and weapons need to be abolished, along with the nuclear power plants that are nothing more than an excuse to make more DU weapons.

Aging Reactors, Lies, Deceptions, Profits And Earthquakes

“The US has more than 100 reactors similar to Japan’s destroyed Fukushima plant. Some located in earthquake zones or close to major cities are now reaching the end of their working lives. People And Power sent Joe Rubin and Serene Fang to investigate.”

Aging and worn out nuclear power plants are at the end of their original design basis. Nuclear power plants are designed to operate for 30 years and then shut down and decommission. 


However, due to the profit motive, the nuclear industry is now coming up schemes that will make renewing their licensing much easier and more profitable than closing these plants down. 

Companies are doing cost benefits analysis on the parts within these plants. Should they wait until a part completely fails before replacing it, or replace it before that point? The profit motive conspires to doing nothing. The cost of short term seeking of profit may endanger nearby cities and millions of people as old, worn out plants start leaking, breaking down and literally falling apart, as the video below shows.

Short term profit motives move the whole industry in the direction of not doing preventative maintenance or replacement. Does this work for you and your family? 


You can TAKE ACTION to make a difference with this issue, and here is how. 


One Year after Fukushima—Help Raise Awareness of Nuclear Power Safety Issues

March 11 marks the one-year anniversary of the tragic events at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan. The accident has had profound and long-lasting public health, environmental, quality-of-life, and economic consequences for tens of thousands of Japanese citizens. What happened at Fukushima can happen in the United States.

You can ensure your decision makers make smart choices based on facts, and help raise awareness about this critical issue and demand faster action to ensure safer, more secure, and better regulated nuclear power in the United States by writing a letter to the editor today.

Writing a letter to the editor (LTE) is an effective and easy way to reach a large audience with your message. LTEs are printed on the editorial page, which is one of the most read pages in the paper. Decision makers keep a close eye on media coverage, including LTEs, in their local papers so they can keep a ‘pulse’ on issues of importance to their constituents. Having a strong letter published helps you reach both a wide public audience and your elected officials with the same effort!

To make your letter most effective, we’re going to narrow down the list of media outlets to ones that are in your area and provide you with some talking points. Please enter your zip code:

https://secure3.convio.net/ucs/site/LteUser?lte.user=lte_resolve_zip&lte_id=22001&s_src=wac&s_subsrc=website&__utma=1.1929710444.1331071981.1331072077.1331781726.3&__utmb=1.4.10.1331781726&__utmc=1&__utmx=-&__utmz=1.1331781726.3.3.utmcsr=blogger.com|utmccn=(referral)|utmcmd=referral|utmcct=/blogger.g&__utmv=-&__utmk=232380319

Here is a second step you can take that will make a difference. 


Urge the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to Improve Nuclear Plant Safety

For years to come, the Japanese people will suffer grave human, environmental, and economic costs as a result of the worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl. And the truth is, it could happen in the United States as well.

The Japanese nuclear crisis has exposed some of the risks and vulnerabilities of nuclear power and the importance of making sure our nation’s 104 nuclear power reactors are safer than they are today.

Please tell the Nuclear Regulatory Commission that it must make every effort to prevent such a disaster in the United States and take steps to make nuclear power in this country safer.

Please make your letter personal by adding in your own thoughts and concerns. Every letter makes a difference, but customized letters have the greatest effect!

Not sure if you live near a reactor? View our Nuclear Power Information Tracker to find out. Learn more about our nuclear power safety and security recommendations.

Please tweet the following and follow the link to send your letter to the NRC: 


Crisis in #Japan exposed risks of #nuclear power. Urge NRC to make every effort to prevent such a disaster in the US http://goo.gl/wDu0o

Join the online National Nuclear Power Safety Briefing—March 19,

More than 115 million Americans live within 50 miles of an aging nuclear power reactor—and that means that we all have a direct stake in improving the safety and security of these power plants. For that to happen, more people need to get informed and hold accountable those responsible for our health and safety.

Please join us for a special, one-hour discussion examining the key issues surrounding nuclear power in the United States and policy recommendations for making nuclear power safer, more secure, and better regulated.


Monday, March 19
4:00-5:00 p.m. (EDT)
RSVP Today
http://ucsusa.org/action/

Hosted by UCS President Kevin Knobloch, the phone briefing will include remarks from UCS experts.

Dave Lochbaum, director of the UCS Nuclear Safety Project, and Ellen Vancko, manager of the UCS Nuclear Energy & Climate Change Project, will discuss our work on both nuclear power safety and economics, respectively. I will provide an update on our nuclear power safety campaign and what we hope to accomplish—with your help—in the coming months and years.

You may also request a Nuclear Power Citizen Advocacy Tool Kit that includes some of our most recent analysis and issue fact sheets, as well as a number of other “how-to” resources such as tips on how to contact policy makers and submit letters to your local newspaper.

We look forward to your participation in next Monday’s briefing.

Windscale: Biggest Covered Up UK Nuclear Disaster?

The Windscale nuclear disaster was a military engineered cover since even before construction began.  Electricity production was a convenient cover for producing nuclear bomb grade plutonium. When Windscale caught on fire and spewed radioactive substances all over the surrounding countryside, it was kept completely secret. Even nuclear research scientists were not told about it.

 

This video talks about making bigger nuclear bombs, which required huge amounts of Tritium. Windscale was ordered to make 500% more Tritium in order to make bigger bombs. They did this by increasing the heat in the reactor and taking off shielding from the core material. Scientists warned of impending disaster, but the politicians and military ignored them.

Details how fire broke out in reactor core, and how the secret was kept. Uranium was burning inside the reactor, stimulated by the air fans used to normally cool the reactor. Uranium dust was coming out of the vent stack, but no one was warned. A rumor spread around town that the plant was on fire, but on official announcement was made. Half the village left town. There was no emergency plan to deal with the fire.

They tried pouring water on the nuclear fire, but that did not put the fire out, until they turned the air off. The fire went out quickly with a combination of water and no air moving through the reactor. It took about 24 hours for the official announcement to come out that a small fire had broken out, but that all radiation had blown out to sea, when actually it was blowing over the nearby town. The government ordered all milk from 250 square miles to be thrown out. A top secret inquiry found out that the military production of tritium and plutonium caused the fire. McMillan ordered that the whole inquiry and report about it be kept secret. Safety issues were ignored completely.

The coverup was complete. The plant operators were blamed for the fire, instead of the military pushing for more tritium and plutonium production from the plant. An official summary white paper was produced later, saying it was a minor accident, leaving out most of the details, and blaming it all on “operator error”. Shortly after that, a hydrogen bomb was exploded, with a one Megaton rating, which the politicians and military were very proud of.

Windscale: Biggest Covered Up UK Nuclear Disaster? via A Green Road Blog

12 Reasons Why ALL Nuclear Power Plants Must Be Shut Down

Have you everwondered what is happening with all of the used up nuclear fuel these days,since there is no permanent storage solution? Well, here are the unbelievable details. It will make your head spin.

 

Nuclear plants aretheoretically designed with multiple back up systems, which are designed tocounter all ‘normal’ risks that the plant may encounter during it’s lifetime.

 

However,  this theory of safety is NOT turning intoreality for many reasons. Here are the many reasons why nuclear plants need tobe shut down. Be sure and read the very last reason at the very end, if you only read only one.

 

Reason #1

 

No permanent storageis available for highly dangerous, radioactive spent fuel. Uranium mining is dirty, dangerous and radioactive. The radioactive waste tailing pilings from mining uranium generates dirty, radioactive dust and heavy metal poisoning in kids. Both the radioactive and dangerous spent fuel ispiling up at reactors around the world and these toxic uranium tailing piles are also increasing in number. Depleted uranium, which is the ‘garbage’ left over from nuclear power plants, is used worldwide in shells, bullets and bombs, polluting the planet for 40 BILLION years. http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/03/depleted-uranium-effects-in-human-body.html 


Recycling facilities reprocess only3 percent of nuclear fuel coming out of nuclear reactors as opposed to the 97 percent claim that the industry makes. ‘Recycling’ creates HUGE amounts of radioactive waste, which is legally dumped into the sea and into the air. Whole areas of the ocean bottom are becoming nuclear toxic waste zones. To see this happening, watch this short clip. http://youtu.be/7UsX22QtaRc


Radioactive gases Krypton and Xenon are pumped out into the air constantly at these recycling facilities.  In one year they pump out more radioactive gases than all of the radioactive gases released by over 500 atomic bomb tests. Depleted uranium hexaflouride is stored outside with no protection in toxic waste drums after ‘recycling’. And that is just the tip of the iceberg.  http://youtu.be/KUJoiUWHVtU

 

Theamount of spent fuel at just one spent fuel pool is enough to contaminate andmake a 15,000 square mile area permanently uninhabitable, besides killingpotentially millions of people. If spent fuel pool #4 falls over at Fukishima Daichi, Japan can kiss itself goodbye.


But Fukushima Daichi is not an isolated, solitary danger.  Mostnuclear power plants and their associated spent fuel pools are located close to major cities,such as Chicago, New York, San Diego, etc. This is not a risk that we as a human family can live with. 


Fukushima should be teaching us this very important lesson about playing with anti-life forces, but the media is not talking about this or other dangers that nuclear plants present to humanity at all. Why not? 


Maybe it has something to do with the fact that the mass media is owned by GE (which makes nuclear reactors and nuclear medical devices) and a few other large corporations involved in profiting from things like nuclear energy. They also profit from advertising how ‘clean’ and ‘safe’ nuclear energy, carbon fuel and coal is, These are the most polluting  anti-life fuels and energy sources on Earth.  

 

Reason #2

 

As we can see, spentfuel rods are very dangerous and should be isolated from everything andeveryone, in case something bad happens. However, in all nuclear power plants,these spent fuel pools are right next to or on top of the nuclear reactors. 


This meansthat if a spent fuel pool melts down or explodes, odds are that this explosionwill also destroy or cause a further explosion in the reactor right next to it,or the other way around, as happened at Fukushima Reactor #3. 



Spent fuel poolsshould definitely be located FAR away from all population centers anddefinitely NOT close to reactors, but in fact, that is where they all are. Thisis pure insanity. All spent fuel should be separated from other rods, so thatthey cannot react together and cause radiation release via just a passivecooling method, but the opposite is happening. This is pure insanity.

 

 

Reason #3

 

At Fukushima Daichi,all reactors and spent fuel pools are connected with pipes that supply water toboth the reactors and spent fuel pools. 


These pipes can also transfer things likeexplosive charges, which is what happened at Fukushima complex. At Fukushima, all reactors andspent fuel pools are connected together, and all spent fuel pools are connectedtogether to these reactors, with common cooling water and other piping systems. 

 

Operators atFukushima Daichi blamed explosions and/or melt downs at one reactor or spentfuel pool for causing the explosion and/or melt down in other reactors andspent fuel pools for this very reason. Anything bad affecting one reactor orspent fuel pool can and does affect all of the rest.

 

This money savingstrategy of connecting all of these reactors and spent fuel pools together with piping and central control rooms that operate multiple reactors at the same time, greatly increases risk,rather than reducing it. 


Reactors and spent fuel pools should NEVER beconnected together in any way, and each should have it’s own independentcooling and control systems, PERIOD. We do not have to be scientists to understand thisbasic and fundamental risk management strategy. Fukushima should be teaching us this lesson and many others. According to Arnie Gunderson, we are not learning ANY lesson, YET. 

 

The opposite is beingdone at nuclear power plant complexes globally. They are being connected togetherwith common piping and control rooms.  Again, this is very unsafe, and we could callit pure insanity, because the consequences of this can wipe out all ofhumanity. Combine this with other things being done to reduce safety andincrease risk, and we end up with a global life extinction disaster in themaking.

 

Reason #4

 

All nuclear plantsstore all of their spent nuclear fuel onsite. These onsite spent fuel pools weredesigned to safely hold only a couple of years of nuclear fuel waste products,before being shipped off to a permanent storage place. Since the industry neversolved this problem, all nuclear waste products are stored right next to or ontop of each reactor, making any disaster MUCH worse, if and when it happens, suchas Fukushima for example, where multiple reactors and spent fuel poolspartially or completely melted down.

 

What makes thissituation MUCH worse, is that each plant is cramming more and more fuel rodsinto the spent fuel pools, when they are not designed for this. The spentnuclear fuel that comes out of reactors is not cold and inert, but very hot andhighly radioactive. Without active cooling 24 hours a day, these spent fuelrods can melt down and/or blow up in spent fuel pools.

 

If the cooling pumpsfail, or not enough water covers the spent fuel rods, or if the water boils offdue to loss of power, a catastrophic melt down or nuclear explosion can happen.This  has happened at Fukushima spent fuel pool #3.

 

Each plant isincreasing the storage capacity at each spent fuel pool by packing all rods intighter together. While this may seem cost effective,  logical and easy, it is actually VERYDANGEROUS and increases RISK EXPONENTIALLY. Why?

 

When spent fuel rodsare stacked in a spent fuel pool, they normally do not need any specialcooling, because the water covering them is enough to transfer residual heataway until many years later when they can be transferred out of the spent fuelpool, to a safer and much more secure dry cask storage method. (Many nuclearplants never transfer spent fuel rods into dry cask storage, because it costsmore money.)

 

However, when fuelrods are crammed closer and closer together, the residual heat generated by allof these rods packed close together must be removed mechanically with a hugeheat exchanger and massive cooling pumps, rather than passively removing heatwithout any power required. This cramming technique also requires addingneutron moderating chemicals to the water to keep the fuel from overheating,even with the water cooling pumps and heat exchanger operating 24 hours aday. 

 

When spent fuel rodsare packed in tightly together, the neutrons from one rod ‘excite’ the neutronsin another rod, which causes a fission process to start happening. Fission iswhat happens in a nuclear bomb. So to keep spent fuel rods from fissioning andcreating a meltdown or explosion, they require 24 hour a day cooling ANDchemicals added to the water 24 hours  aday.

 

If either or both ofthese things stop for any reason, the spent fuel pool will melt down and/or beat a much higher risk of blowing up in a nuclear explosion. This can and doeshappen fairly rapidly. This is what happened at the Fukushima Daichi Complex,but it has effectively been covered up. 

 

What happened at Fukushima can happen anywhereelse in the world, and it will happen again, because of the same defects indesign and risk management. At Fukushima, the electricitywas out for eight hours and the reactors melted down in that time. The spentfuel pools boiled off their water and also melted down either partially orcompletely not long after that. Then these reactors and spent fuel pools wentinto uncontrolled fission reactions, spewing out deadly radiation that wentaround the world.

 

The whole industry hasbecome corrupt, dishonest and incompetent, endangering not only localcommunities and large cities, but also humanity and all life on the planet.

 

Reason #5

 

Basic design flawsat all nuclear power plants are built in and cannot easily be ‘fixed’. For example,Arnie Gunderson has stated that the Mark I reactor design is flawed anddangerous and should NEVER have been approved. There are 21 Mark I reactorsoperating in the US today and many moreoperating around the world. 


Listen to Arnie discuss the dangers of nuclear power plants and the NRC not learning any lessons from nuclear disasters such as Fukushima. 



 

Basic designs ofnuclear plants minimize the size of earthquakes and tsunamis that they aredesigned for. They may be built to resist a Level 5 earthquake, but not a Level9, which is what hit the Fukushima plant. There are even stories coming out of design engineers being forced to sign fraudulent statements that certify nuclear reactors for earthquakes, when they are actually nowhere close to being ready for an earthquake.  Large earthquakes are less common than smaller ones, but they DO happen.  Click on link to find out more about the potential fraud around earthquakes and nuclear plants. http://www.thepeoplesvoice.org/TPV3/Voices.php/2012/03/12/the-fukushima-story-you-didn-t-hear-on-c


Reactors built on the ocean mayhave walls designed to counter a 5 foot Tsunami wave, but the regularoccurrence of 10-40 feet tsunamis in many areas is going to overwhelm thesewalls, just like they did at Fukushima Daichi.


As Arnie Gunderson explains,nuclear plants should be designed for a one in 2,000 year event such asearthquake or tsunami, but they are NOT. They are designed for a 20 year or 30year event. This is a basic risk that every nuclear plant has build into it,which CANNOT BE FIXED.

 

Reason #6

 

Now that nuclearplants have reached the end of their effectively and safety designed lifetimes,the NRC is approving them to run another 20 years or longer, with no changes ormodifications. In one case, A worker at one of these plants scraped some rustfrom a huge cooling pipe and the pipe sprung a huge leak, because the rust wasthe only thing keeping the pipe together.

 

The NRC is not eveninspecting them before approval. The only one they inspected as part of thisnew relicensing program was shut down. They stopped inspecting after that.  This is pure insanity. Why?

 

Licensing old wornout plants to keep going is like taking a car with 250,000 miles that has beenabused and misused, and then saying it is ok to do that (with your kids in it)for another 250,000 miles, running at 120 miles per hour. Would you trustsomeone who did not inspect, replace or repair anything in that car with your familyin it? 


According to Arnie Gunderson, these plants should never have been approved in the first place, much less be approved to run another 30 years. Then we also have the issue coming up of a state, counties and cities NOT wanting nuclear plants, but the federal government coming in and FORCING nuclear plants on these localities, despite their strenuous objections. http://fairewinds.com/content/arnie-and-maggie-talk-vermont-yankee-fukushima-and-nuclear-industry

 

Reason #7

 

Allnuclear plants release all kinds of radioactive elements just during normaloperation. ‘Recycling’ spent fuel plants like La Hague in France and Hanford in the US release massive quantities of radiation into the air and water.


CBS 60 Minutes explores the Hanford Toxic Waste Site
 http://youtu.be/aETpg6TmswQ


Studies have shown that children leaving near normally operating nuclear plants havehigher rates of cancer and other diseases. Groundwater contamination withradioactive Tritium is commonplace around nuclear power plants or research facilities. Tritium is also released into the coolingwater and air on a regular basis, as are other hazardous invisible radioactiveelements. 


Did You Know That 75% Of US Nuclear Plants Are Leaking Toxic Tritium Radiation Into Drinking Water Supply? Paul Gunter at Beyond Nuclear provides more details at; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jo1Kqez3fUU  



Are Your State’s Nuclear Power Plants Leaking Radiation? Some Say It’s A Problem. 

“A typical reactor is only allowed to release about a thirtieth of a teaspoon of tritium in a whole year! A bad year is maybe a whole teaspoon of tritium. That’s how deadly this stuff is! And if that teaspoon of tritium evaporates, do you think it gets measured accurately, and properly reported? 


What it does get is a special dispensation from the NRC to release the extra tritium that year. If they leak tritium, which is almost always bound up as HTO, chances are pretty good it will evaporate, and never make it into the ground. We will breath it as water vapor. It will be in doses too low to measure accurately, thanks to all the tritium everyone is already dumping into our environment. (There is very little ‘natural’ tritium on earth at any one time.)” http://www.counterpunch.org/2011/07/13/san-onofre/ “The Perils of Tritium”


Low dose radiation released from nuclear plants is hazardous, despiteclaims to the contrary. When we could be using renewable fuels that have nosuch hazard, the choice is clear and obvious.

Theindustry has some deceptive ‘spin’ that they use to try and say all of this issafe, but Nuclear Crimes has a simple explanation that counters most of thisspin at; http://www.nuclearcrimes.org

 

Reason #8

Afteran accident happens and radiation is released, the first thing that commonlyhappens is that the public is NOT  notified of radiation release for days, weeks or even months.  The coverup of radioactive releases has consistently happened at TMI, Chernobyl and Fukushima, just to name a few.  
Whatreally happened at Fukushima?
The examples above, plus more examples such as Mayak in Russia are just the tip of the iceberg, and many more around the globe, proves that there are plenty more nuclear disasters where these came from.. 


Asa result of these nuclear accident cover-ups plus over 2,000 nuclear bomb tests, plus present day DU weapons use and tests, billions of people around the world were and still are being exposed to dangerous low level radiationwithout warning, treatment after exposure and without any advance warning notice. 





With immediate warning after a nuclear accident at a nuclear power plant, at least some people could get out of the downwind radiation being released. Even after everyone knew and wasnotified of unplanned radiation being released, no specific radiation readingsare ever released from downwind radiation monitors. The authorities may say allreleases are within ‘safety limits’. Well, let us explore what they mean whenthey utter this Bu(##(##t.

Atthe very least, not notifying people of radiation releases that may kill,sicken or harm people in a community is like performing a medical experimentwithout consent or permission on all of those people. At worst, this is a crimethat should be prosecuted.

Is Fukushima really in cold shutdown?
Reason #9
Whatdoes the industry mean when they say that no one will die from a radiationrelease from a reactor meltdown, explosion or other accident? The authoritiesoften use phrases like ‘within safety limits’ or something similar. There is actually a manual that the industry uses, detailing over 30 methods to deceive the public… To find out more about the 30ways the nuclear industry deceives everyone, click on;

The‘experts’ who calculate how many people will die in a nuclear plant explosionor meltdown have a specific formula that they follow every time, and it couldbe termed faux science. Here is the way they pull the wool over everyone’seyes.
Firstthe ‘experts’ come up with a ‘risk factor’ number. This number is calculated byaveraging everyone around the plant within many miles in all directions, andaveraging the ‘estimated’ and very low amount of radiation released among everyone equally. By combining all ofthese, the number is deceptively lowered to a low, low, low risk factor.
Thenext step is to get the radiation reading. This is also an average takenusually from upwind or off to one side of the reactor or the other, (if they use actual readings at all) but NEVERfrom downwind radiation meter readings. They also commonly throw out any highradiation monitor readings as being ‘false’ or ‘broken’ or ‘out of order’. Thisartificially lowers the amount of radiation to a much lower total, and alsolowers the total amount of radiation released by orders of magnitude. An estimate is all that people get. No actual  internal exposure is ever measured by independent monitors who do not have an axe to grind or profits to protect. Doctors are not trained in this and hospitals do not test for radiation, so that takes care of that subject. 
Thenthe next step is to average a ‘low’ total radiation ‘guessestimate’ among everyone around manymiles in all directions of the plant equally, instead of mainly downwind, wheremost of the radiation normall goes. This also GREATLY reduces the amount of radiation that isthen plugged into the computer that calculates risk and exposure.
Nowthe risk factor number is combined with the average radiation exposure, (bothlowered through the methods above). The time of the accident is also minimized greatly, often ignoring times of greatest radiation release, or ignoring certain events completely. 


This estimating, guessing, averaging, and downgrading everything downwards is all plugged into software in acomputer. The computer spits out the official radiation exposure that everyone wasexposed to. To no one’s surprise, what the computer comes up with is that the radiation released is most often within ‘safety limits’. The officials can now safely pronounce that no one will die or get ill from radiation, because the amounts calculated by all of this ‘massaging’ of numbers and risk are way too low. 
By ‘massaging’ and manipulating the numbers across all of theabove methods as well as some others, such as counting only exposure to one ortwo short lived radioactive elements, instead of the 1,000 elements released,and making sure that those counted are only short lived isotopes instead of ones that are around for 2 BILLION years, everything dangerous to health can be kept out of the equation. This means that liability can be avoided and no lawsuits will be successful. 


There are many opportunities for ‘massaging’ radiation numbers until they come out to say that no one died, no one was harmed and thatnuclear power is safe. To find out more about the 30 ways that the nuclearindustry uses ‘experts’ to deceive you and I, read the following;  
30ways the nuclear industry deceives everyone; 

 

Reason #10
The nuclear industry and regulators completelyignore and dispute that internal radiation can cause any harm. This is anotherpart of the risk model that they use, which shows that no one is harmed bynuclear plants, nuclear bombs, or by DU weapons, because internal radiation has no effect. At the same time, external exposure is manipulated until it can be shown to cause ‘no immediate harm’.  


Of course, this is mostly bogus faux science, which relies on making up stuff and ignoring all kinds ofstudies, evidence and medical research, as well as animal studies. Read thefollowing blogs for more information about this. 
Lowdose radiation dangers, lessons from Chernobyl
Fukushima Residents ReportVarious Radiation Caused Illnesses
Radiationdangers in food and water
Reason #11
It is well known thatgovernment agencies are corrupt, and the nuclear regulatory bodies are nodifferent. If this is the first time you have heard of this concept, watch thefollowing YouTube video that explains it very well.
“I AmFishead” Are Corporate Leaders Egotistical Psychopaths?


of this Now that we have explained how large corporations, suchas nuclear utilities often operate, let us explore the world of nuclearregulators with Dr. Chris Busby in his video;

It is a fact that most large corporations systems have elementsof sociopathy and psychopathy within their structure and operations. Is thisthe kind of structure that we want to be in charge of something that can killall of humanity when something goes wrong? (The industry admits that aboutevery 20 years, something major will go wrong).  I highly doubt most people would agree toallow these huge monopolistic corporations to control their future, if theyknew this basic fact. Many of these corporations act in a selfish way, toprotect their own interest, and enrich those at the top executive level, at theexpense of communities, states and countries.
They are actually predators in search of prey that will notfight back when ‘bled’ for profit or exploited in other ways. For humans,predatory behavior is aberrant and psychopathic and it should not be in controlof nuclear power, or nuclear bombs for that matter.
For more information see this article;
Reason #12
Einstein supposedly said that nuclear power would be the deathof humankind if we did not stop using it voluntarily.


What happens if weexperience another Level 9 earthquake in another part of the world? Whathappens if we have another Level 9 earthquake right in Fukushima? Humanity is notready for mega disasters like this. The Fukushima disaster may verywell spell the end of Japan, due to many factors,one of which is the exodus of citizens due to low dose radiation.
March 22, 2012 Next MEGAQUAKE &Axis Shift?
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/03/march-22-2012-next-megaquake-axis-shift.html

AIf Fukushima is hit by another Level 9 earthquake, it willmore than likely collapse spent fuel pool #4, which will cause all of Japan tobecome a toxic waste zone, much more so than it is now. That is the projected consequence that the japanese government hid from the public and did not announce, which would happen if just ONE spentfuel pool out of the many at the Fukushima Daichi complex collapsed and spread all of its contents all over the ground. What happens if 2-3 or even  5 of them melt down, collapse, or explode?This could mean the end of humanity. 


People have no idea who dangerous hundreds of tons of nuclear spent fuel is, particularly the MOX fuel, which contains high amounts of plutonium in it. For more information about the dangers of MOX fuel, and the dangers of plutonium, click on this link;

Another prediction has been made in a different direction. NASAis predicting that a Super Solar Storm will potentially be generated by the sunin 2013, and it could hit Earth. What does this mean for us? This kind of SuperSolar Storm has happened before, and it hit  Earth in 1897. Read and findout what happened back then, and what might happen when it occurs again..

http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/03/super-solar-storm-predicted-to-hit-2013.html 
Bottom line; if and when this Super Solar Storm hits, all 400 nuclear plants  will more than likely melt down due to loss of power for extended periods of time. 


Wehad better get ready.. Japan was not ready forwhat hit them, and it was predicted by multiple historians, archeologists, environmentalists, ecologists, and nuclear engineers. So far, the lessons of TMI, Chernobyl, and Fukushima have NOT been learned. 


The Super Solar Storm that is coming soon is also being predicted by many scientists, ecologists, researchers and historians. The effect is has on nuclear power plants is up tous. If we get ready BEFORE it hits, we can get through it.
Ifwe do not prepare, and it hits, I fear that humanity will become extinct, dueto power loss to 400 nuclear power plants, 400 spent fuel pools and thesubsequent meltdown and/or explosion of all of these.. Not a pretty picture…

The Power Of Intent

“Intent is a seed in consciousness, or spirit. If you pay attention to it, it has within it the means for its own fulfillment. Intention’s infinite organizing power orchestrates countless details simultaneously.

Intent creates coincidence; it is the reason why, when you’re thinking of something, it happens. Intent is the reason why some people have a spontaneous remission or heal themselves. Intent orchestrates all the creativity in the universe.”

FRYING DUTCHMAN humanERROR Musical Performance

One way artists and musicians are speaking out about Fukushima is to use music as a protest tool. This is one example of many. This musical performance is WELL WORTH LISTENING TO. He sings from the heart. If you are not crying by the end of this, well… watch and see what happens… 


According to the Atlantic; “Frying Dutchman, a Kyoto-based band virtually unknown a year ago, is behind what has perhaps become the anthem of the post-Fukushima youth movement. The song “humanERROR,” a poetic rant which, if nothing else, clearly articulates the narrative embraced by many Japanese, has become an internet sensation over the past three months. Organizers, concerned that people might not know how to articulate their protest on the one year anniversary of 3.11, began a campaign to get 100,000 people to play “humanERROR” on sound systems across Japan — the louder and more public the better, they explained. Sixty-seven thousand registered.”

Radiation Causing Unusual Changes: What’s Happening to Children Now?

Title Of Video: Radiation Causing Unusual Changes: What’s Happening to Children Now? (July 14, 2011)


What Are The Most Common Health Complaints After 3/11 In Fukushima Province And Japan?
Video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_O2j_f43P4
Interview of Mrs. Noro, on Our Planet – TV.


The following is a rough transcript of the video above.


An email campaign was launched by OurPlanet TV. The question was asked on the air…. What are the most common health problems experienced by people after the Fukushima nuclear disaster? Here is the breakdown of the 500 responses received from all over Japan.


Irritation in the throat
Nosebleeds, all ages, all sexes
Diarrhea
Fatigue
Pale face, dark circles under eyes
Eye swelling
Bruises
Rashes
Moles
Allergies getting worse
Diseases coming back again, after they went away
Injuries healing slowly or getting sore again, after they have healed


Mrs. Noro reports that: “The above are all body signs that are common among people who have been exposed to low dose radiation around Chernobyl, according to activist who got children out of these areas to reduce their body burdens of radiation. To go more in depth information around low dose radiation, click this link; http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/03/low-dose-chernobyl-and-fukushima.html


Doctors in Japan have little or no training or experience in low dose radiation, (internal or external) symptoms, treatment or prevention. (Medical schools do not teach this subject in any country, including the USA.)


Commonly what happens to people if they go to the hospital with these problems is that they get diagnosed with cold or flu. They may even get a test for a bacteria or virus, but often none is found, despite diarrhea, nosebleed, or throat problem. They may go home without a diagnosis, or even with a diagnosis of a mental/stress issue. A blood test will reveal nothing unusual. If you get medicine for your diarrhea, the medicine will not help. Doctors often do not know what to do, other than to give stronger medicines and more of them.


Medical tests do not reveal the sources of these problems, and many people go home undiagnosed. If the problem is radiation, it is very common for medical tests to reveal nothing, and medicines to do almost nothing either.


This is why people go to our website and try to get more information. The Bura Bura Disease or Chernobyl Disease is common among those who have been exposed to low dose radiation. (These terms refer to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which is caused by low level radiation)


However, it is important to go to a doctor and let them do what they can. Even if the diagnosis is wrong, it is important to do this, so that you have a record. (Get a copy of the records of whatever tests you got and the diagnosis received, in case they get lost). It is common for mothers to be told that it is just allergies, or that they are too nervous, or it is all stress related and such. All of these same things happened after Chernobyl with doctors in Russia and Belarus contaminated areas. 


Doctors without any training or experience in this area tend to think that radiation can ONLY result in leukemia or cancer, but nothing else, because that is the extent of their training. (They also get pressure from the industry to come up with this result)  The Japanese medical doctors who went to Chernobyl to investigate did not look at low dose internal radiation symptoms, or the bouquet of symptoms presented by low dose radiation in children. How would they be able to find these symptoms if they never look for them anywhere? If they believe that low dose internal radiation damage cannot happen, because that is what the nuclear industry believes and teaches, how can they diagnose it? 


These Japanese doctors visiting Chernobyl ONLY treated a much smaller number of children with more severe radiation symptoms and health problems, like cancer. But the problem with this approach is that the number of children with cancer is only the tip of the iceberg.


Underneath the few children that have cancer, there is a HUGE number of children who suffer and complain of fatigue for example, which is often a sign of serious thyroid diseases and problems, as well as a compromised immune system. 


Eye swelling is another common problem among children who are exposed to low dose radiation. This is most common in children who have fallen and gotten radiation exposure to their eyes, by perhaps getting sand or dust in their eyes in contaminated areas. The eyes can swell and even turn purple within a day of exposure, after they have played in a low dose radiation contaminated sandbox, or a dusty field, or a dirt playground. 


Another problem is that many people are eating radiation contaminated food, because the government ‘raised’ the ‘safe’ level of radiation in food, overnight. (There was no debate, notice or reason given for this) To read more about this issue, go to; http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/03/radiation-contamination-standards-for.html


As this invisible and undetectable radiation contaminated food is eaten, it weakens the immune system of the body. This is why health problems get worse, more infections happen, and why allergies also get worse. Radiation acts just like a free radical, or an allergic substance that the body is then reacting against. When the body has to fight the effects of low dose radiation, it takes away energy needed for other things, like growth, immune system, healing, etc. A weakened immune system tends to cause fatigue, all by itself. (A Geiger Counter will not detect radiation contaminated food.)


Most of the emails about new and strange health problems came from Tohoku and Kanto regions, which are also the most contaminated areas. The government of Japan should be and could be doing health surveys like this, but so far, they are not. (But these low dose radiation symptoms and problems can happen anywhere, including the USA, particularly among the most vulnerable, like fetus, babies and children, or the elderly. The death rate of babies went up in the USA after Fukushima and Chernobyl, for example.) To find out more about this, go to; http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/02/total-fukushima-radiation-released-into.html


A story being heard about children in Fukushima Province is that it is common for children to get a cold, which then rapidly progresses into pneumonia or something else so that they are constantly in and out of hospitals, where ordinarily this does not happen. But because the immune systems of children are weakened by low dose radiation contamination, this is the new normal. (Sudden deaths of infants and children for no reason is more common as well.) This is also what happened around Chernobyl. It is shocking to hear this is now happening around Fukushima, (and in places like Tokyo… see link for more information; http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/03/tokyo-is-it-safe-from-fukushima-httpwww.html


For three years, nothing was done for the children around Chernobyl, so the Cancer rates were very high as a result of that. It would help if the government of Japan would do something much more quickly than what happened around Chernobyl in Russia, or TMI in the USA. To find out more about this, see link;  http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/03/three-mile-island-coverups-exposed.html


Basically, I went to Belarus seven years ago. What I discovered there is that there were NO healthy children there. In a school with 100 children, 97-98 had health issues. The authorities said that the children only got ill due to a weakened immune system, when they got even a little stressed or if there was some mildly shocking event. These children were in a ‘grey zone’ between health and illness. Most of these children were like ticking time bombs that could go off anytime. What these children are exposed to will not go away in a few years, and the problems are getting worse, not better.  To find out more about long life radiation contaminants, see http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/03/93-long-lived-nuclear-elements.html


Classes were shortened to 25 minutes instead of 45 minutes, because the kids could not handle the longer classes. They got too exhausted. The result of all of these problems is that it caused many people to leave the area. Those who were most educated left first. The ones that eventually were left were the poor farmers, disabled, and poor families with many children. The ones that were left were those without means to move or make a living in another area.


Comparing Fukushima to Chernobyl is easy. Hot spots in Kanto are exactly like those in Belarus. The radiation in Fukushima is way too high, it is crazy high. Around Chernobyl, people are NOT allowed to live in areas with more than 1 mS per hour dose of radiation.


For example, a no entry zone around Chernobyl, established in 1994, and extending 30 km from the plant, would have a radiation of .232 mS per hour. =


Yet, around Fukushima, people are allowed to live and work and children play in areas with 1.3 mS per hour, which is MANY TIMES HIGHER than this exclusion/no entry zone around Chernobyl. I cannot believe that people are treated in such an inhumane way in this country of Japan.  (Authorities say Fukushima is in ‘cold shutdown’, but is it really?) See link for more information; http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/03/fukushima-is-it-really-in-cold-shutdown.html


The safety limit of 20 milliSieverts per year for school children has not been changed since the government announced it. The typical and normal maximum is 1 milliSievert per year for citizens in other countries. The government has said it will do what it can to reduce this, but so far, nothing has changed. (This pattern of the nuclear industry and government doing nothing is the rule after every nuclear accident, and there is actually a manual with 30 ways to deceive people and/or lie to them about a nuclear accident and/or low dose radiation. For more information see; http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/03/primer-in-art-of-deception-cult-of.html


Bottom line, the solution is to evacuate the children AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AFTER A NUCLEAR ACCIDENT, not to leave them there, to suffer and get all kinds of diseases and illnesses. The adults might not be able to leave due to financial reasons, but the children should be saved at all costs. 


At an absolute minimum, children should leave for at least a month and go to a much safer area. This is also done around Belarus. Evacuations can happen on a class basis, taking a whole class of children out of the area, and leaving for an extended period of time. If they do not do this, they will face really serious consequences. 


In Belarus, the government eventually got serious and responded by establishing programs to separate children from radiation. They established ‘radiation vacation’ programs for children with the heaviest contamination, so they could lower those loads in clean areas. Or they sent them to Sanitoriums; with health programs that helped children reduce their radiation loads.


But the problem with the areas around Fukushima is so bad, that I am afraid that even these measures will not be enough. The whole area around Fukushima is like a forbidden forest, as they term it in Belarus. In Belarus, entire forests are forbidden to enter by people, because they are so radioactive. In Japan many people are living in areas where it is too dangerously radioactive for people to go in Russia. To find out more about the dangers of radioactive substances read; http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/03/how-dangerous-is-400-600-pounds-of.html


This problem is not confined to Fukushima Province. There are many areas with this issue. The children should be evacuated. In areas around Chernobyl, where the radiation exceeds .1 MICROSIEVERTS, children get ill. (To find out what really may have happened at Fukushima, and how this may actually be a disaster with global consequences, read http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/02/what-really-happened-at-fukushima.html


Dr. Hida, MD is a medical doctor in Japan who is an expert in internal radiation exposure. He has explained that if you see BOTH nosebleeds and diarrhea, that is a CLEAR sign of internal radiation exposure. This of course means that the child in question should be getting help of some kind, and not be left in that situation. We should be overly nervous and afraid. The most important thing we can do now is to protect the children.


It is better to over react now and protect children, than do nothing and be blamed or feel guilty later for not doing anything. (SAVE THE CHILDREN.)

Raw US Milk Farmer Tortured?

Are you ready to see “shocking photos of California’s 65-year-old “milk man” who was tortured in the LA County jail and barely survived 10 days in the jail system? 


These photos are completely un-altered. One was taken at a CVS pharmacy for a state ID, and the other one (on the right) was taken with an iPhone on the day of his release from jail. See the brutality of the Los Angeles “justice system” and how it aged this man 20 years in just 10 days:
http://www.naturalnews.com/035216_raw_milk_photos_prison_food.html

Oh, but here’s the best part: While California throws raw milk farmers in prison and tortures them as if they were violent criminals, France has unveiled a raw milk vending machine that dispenses raw milk directly to customers. Gosh! All this without the need for armed Sheriff’s Deputies acting out their badass power-tripping goon fantasies? Gee, what will France think of next? I mean, how can there be raw milk without government men with guns being present?”
http://www.naturalnews.com/035215_raw_milk_vending_machines_France.html

I lived for years in Germany, and we had nothing but raw milk and yogurt and cheeese, with no problems. France is apparently still living like that to this day. 


To be clear, I am not an advocate for raw milk on a factory farm basis. The problems that arise with raw milk is not from small 1-2 cow organic small ranch farmers, (like the farmer above) because they take care of their cows better than the average person takes care of their pet in most cases.  They do not allow their cows to get sick or have infections and then still milk them and sell that milk. 


Huge factory milk farms on the other hand, care more about profits than anything else. They may sell milk from sick cows, because they may count on pasteurization to ‘clean’ or sterilize the milk for them. The milk may contain pus from infections. 


Huge factory milk farms keep the cows penned up, feed them strange stuff that cows normally do not eat and free range grass is something that these cows never see. 


The difference in the quality of the milk is something that deserves debate. People who have been raised on the farm know what I am talking about, but city people, who have never lived on a farm, have no clue about the difference, and could probably care less. 


There should be a way to allow raw milk to be sold LEGALLY, for those who want to make this kind of milk and earn a living doing it, and for those who want to drink this kind of milk. Making raw milk farmers into criminals does not solve any problems, but creates many more. 


Right now, we have something that could be called a corporate dictatorship. All profits go to huge corporations, while the little guys like the one in the story above, are punished for ????what exactly?
