2015 – Fukushima Radiation Found In Alaska Lichen, Caribou, Arctic Snow, Plus Sea Animals Like Salmon, Clams, Seals, Walruses, Polar Bears
Many people seem to believe that Fukushima radiation cannot travel far from the source, and even if it does, that it can have no negative effect. Other people believe not enough radiation came out of Fukushima to have any negative impacts, and even if it did, it was ‘diluted’. But is the truth, based on the evidence, or it is just the nuclear industry and their associated pro nuclear pundits and ‘experts’, putting a positive spin on things?
WHY TEST OCEAN WATER, WHEN ANIMALS AND PLANTS CONCENTRATE AND ACCUMULATE THE RADIATION, MAKING IT MUCH EASIER TO FIND THERE?
A prominent research facility is asking for donations to test the ocean water, via crowdsourcing. Of course, unless you are close to Fukushima, radiation in ANY ocean water will be at extremely low low or undetectable levels.
Supposedly, the oceonographic research institute results show ‘no’ radiation in Pacific ocean water. How does any water on the globe, have zero radiation in it these days? Maybe this is more of the pro nuclear funny computer math and statistics manipulation that always seems to come up with zero or really close to it, no matter where they look?

NOTHING RADIOACTIVE IS ‘DILUTED’, BECAUSE EVEN VERY DILUTED RADIATION COMES BACK UP THE FOOD CHAIN TO HUMANS
Even low doses of radiation in Pacific water means little or nothing, because diluted radiation in an ocean will bio accumulate up the food chain. All true scientists and biologists know this simple, very basic fact. If you want to find higher levels of dangerous man made radioactive elements that gets into humans and you are a truth seeking scientist or biologist, the logical place to test is in the sea foods, milk, meat and vegetables being eaten by humans. The other place to look for radiation is inside of kids and infants, through the use of whole body internal radiation scans.

The absolute worst place to look for radiation problems or issues is in Pacific coast ocean water, because no one drinks or uses ocean water for anything, and there is zero bio accumulation in ocean water. Of course, these ‘experts’ know all of this, and they are looking for as close to zero radiation as they can, so the logical place to come up with a zero problem solution is to look in the most diluted radiation place in the world; ocean water located 5,000 miles away from the source of the problem.
RADIATION IS BEING FOUND IN HUMANS AFTER NUCLEAR ACCIDENTS
The FDA is saying all food is safe and you can eat anything you want with no worries. Are they telling the truth? Contrary to these pro nuclear industry mass media spread myths and urban legends, which are spread primarily by the pro nuclear apologists and industry ‘experts’, what does the actual scientific and local resident evidence show? Where is Fukushima radiation actually showing up and being found? Hint, hint; it is not in the ocean water.. so quit looking there, maybe? Maybe look in the places were you WILL find radiation from Fukushima. The evidence is there, for open minds. Can you handle the truth?

FUKUSHIMA CAUSED HIGH RADIATION LEVELS FOUND IN ALASKA LICHEN
Radiation that came from Fukushima traveled many thousands of miles and ended up being found at high levels at the bottom of the food chain, in plants and animals in Alaska. Just because people cannot see, hear, taste, smell or feel it, does not mean it is not there.
Via stock July 22, 2014 Lichens in Alaska were tested in June 2011 and had extremely high levels of both Cesium 134 and Cesium 137
. Around 6000 to 8000 pCi/ kg.
And the ratio of 134 to 137 was around .8. What that means is that all of this cesium is directly attributed to Fukushima. Here is how it works. CS137 has a half life of 30 years, CS134 has half life of 2 years. So if the radiation was from 4 years ago, the CS would fall to around 25% of where it started. It just so happens that the 137 and 134 quantities are about a 1 to 1 ratio at the beginning, with some variance based on the degree of fuel burnup. Color chart below shows actual test results for Fuku. The ratio was about .85. The actual ratio measured in the lichens was right around .80 on average. So all of this is due to Fukushima. Got it? The lowest level of the food chain is highly contaminated. That was 2011, they are not planning on testing again until 2016.
Does that make any sense?

RADIOACTIVE REINDEER/CARIBOU IN ALASKA
No internal radiation tests have been done on caribou since 1995 that AGRP can find. No radiation tests have been done since the 2011 mega nuclear disaster in Fukushima. Caribou eat this highly radiation contaminated lichen as their primary food source. An older radiation test of caribou in 2 out of three ranges dating back to 1995 was finding radiation levels at 131 to 167 Bq/kg, which is considered unfit to eat in Japan, as their limit is 100 Bq/kg. maximum.
Back in 1964, radiation levels were 3,064 Bq/kg wet weight, which is a very poor method of measuring radiation by the way. This was radiation from the 2,400 nuclear bomb tests, as the Chernobyl nuclear disaster did not happen until 1986. What they should be doing is testing the dry weight, as water blocks most radiation, so these measurements are artificially too low by several orders of magnitude. How did they perform these tests with what kind of machine, because that can also skew the results to the low side?
More details about radiation being found in Alaska’s animals since 2011
stock July 24, 2014
“Fukushima increased the radiation in Alaska plants and animals as much as a 1960’s direct blast from an atom bombs test. Wrap your head around that. The proof is here. This is not speculation or conjecture. This is government test data, very extensive. Caribou love lichens, lichens are a radiation magnifier/bio accumulater.”
HUGE DIE OFFS IN NORTHERN TERRITORY CARIBOU HERDS SINCE 2011
For some strange reason, the caribou herds in Alaska and Canada are experiencing huge die offs since 2011. Of course, it is a big mystery and no one can figure out why it is happening. No one is looking in the direction of radiation, because that CANNOT be the reason, ever. Of course, no one is doing interior whole body radiation measurements. Since radiation is invisible, it cannot exist, right? This is the same pattern for ‘studying’ all mass die offs for all animal species, and for human die off events as well, especially after a nuclear accident. Few people understand that nuclear plant meltdowns are genocidal events that have a huge negative effect on the global population of many species.
Gov’t reports “big, big decline” in Alaska caribou — “Mortality very high” after Fukushima releases began — “Low survival rate” for calves also in 2011 and 2012 — Official: “Worrisome” how quickly this happened… In truth, we don’t have an answer why (AUDIO)
RADIATION IN WOLVES UP TO 10 TIMES THAT FOUND IN CARIBOU
The radiation level in wolves and other reindeer predators may be 4 to 10 times that of Caribou! According to White et. al., “In addition to caribou, wolves predating on caribou also become contaminated and the body burden of wolves may be 4 to 10 times that of caribou. However, a cesium body burden much lower than that of caribou is common when the principal food is not caribou… Therefore, unless precautions are taken to prevent the absorption of cesium, the body burden of animals fed contaminated reindeer/caribou flesh and offal could reach levels up to 10 times that in the food.”
This study confirms other studies, showing the accumulation of man made radioactive elements up the food chain in a constantly multiplying amount on each step up the food chain.. In this case, the same same results could also be applied to anyone eating these radiation contaminated caribou, in the same way that wolves to. In other words, if a person ate caribou at the same rate as wolves, then their radiation interior body burden would be the same as in the wolves.
The caribou had levels of around 100 to 200 Bq/kg. Wolves had 4 to 10 times that amount, giving a total of 400 to 2,000 Bq/kg in PEOPLE.
Knowing that 30 to 50 Bq/kg of interior cesium does permanent and non reversible damage to the heart and other organs, this is a life threatening amount, especially for infants, pregnant moms and children.
WHY ARE THERE NO WILD GAME RADIATION FOOD PROTECTION PROGRAMS IN PLACE?
But there are no human interior body burden studies being done anywhere in the US. Why is that? Why aren’t there programs in place to protect humans, especially children, from excessive radiation, as there are in Europe?
The authorities have been ‘promising’ to test radiation in animals like these caribou for many years now, but nothing happens.. After years of promises, but nothing happens, when does it become an organized conspiracy to cover up the truth?

NASA FINDS FUKUSHIMA RADIATION IN ALASKA SNOW AND ICE
NASA found Fukushima radiation in the ice in the Arctic region, many thousands of miles away from the mega nuclear disaster site. Is it so hard to make the connection from this to the very strange and bizarre symptoms that many sea creatures have been having since 2011? Doesn’t this all make sense when the mass die offs in all of these species happened AFTER 2011?
jec July 23, 2014
And from that site, NASA reports on Fukushima radiation in the Arctic. Do you think there is a relationship to sick and dying seals, whales, fish, birds, and sea stars??
Kevin Blanch talks about the following study starting at 3: minutes in. http://youtu.be/BeKayyWDzd4
University of Alaska professors Doug Dasher, John Kelley, Gay Sheffield, and Raphaela Stimmelmayr theorize that radioactive snow might have also caused Alaska’s seals to become sick (page 222):
On March 11, 2011 off Japan’s west coast, an earthquake-generated tsunami struck the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant resulting in a major nuclear accident that included a large release of airborne radionuclides into the environment. Within five days of the accident atmospheric air masses carrying Fukushima radiation were transiting into the northern Bering and Chukchi seas. During summer 2011 it became evident to coastal communities and wildlife management agencies that there was a novel disease outbreak occurring in several species of Arctic ice-associated seals.
Gross symptoms associated with the disease included lethargy, no new hair growth, and skin lesions, with the majority of the outbreak reports occurring between the Nome and Barrow region. NOAA and USFWS declared an Alaska Northern Pinnipeds Usual Mortality Event (UME) in late winter of 2011. The ongoing Alaska 2011 Northern Pinnipeds UME investigation continues to explore a mix of potential etiologies (infectious, endocrine, toxins, nutritious etc.), including radioactivity. Currently, the underlying etiology remains undetermined [i.e. scientists don’t yet know what caused the seals’ sickness, but they think it might have been Fukushima radiation].
We present results on gamma analysis (cesium 134 and 137) of muscle tissue from control and diseased seals, and discuss wildlife health implications from different possible routes of exposure to Fukushima fallout to ice seals. Since the Fukushima fallout period occurred during the annual sea ice cover period from Nome to Barrow, a sea ice based fallout scenario in addition to a marine food web based one is of particular relevance for the Fukushima accident. Under a proposed sea ice fallout deposition scenario, radionuclides would have been settled onto sea ice.
Sea ice and snow would have acted as a temporary refuge for deposited radionuclides; thus radionuclides would have only become available for migration during the melting season and would not have entered the regional food web in any appreciable manner until breakup (pulsed release). The cumulative on-ice exposure for ice seals would have occurred through external, inhalation, and non-equilibrium dietary pathways during the ice-based seasonal spring haulout period for molting/pupping/breeding activities. Additionally, ice seals would have been under dietary/metabolic constraints and experiencing hormonal changes associated with reproduction and molting.
Testing snow and ice for radiation actually makes a lot of sense, compared to testing ocean water for example. Radioactive elements would concentrate on the surface, and as the snow melted, it would concentrate on whatever was left of the snow or ice at the end of the ice season. If a scientist is looking for radiation, this would be the place to find it, not ocean water.

EXPERT FINDS ALASKA SEA ANIMALS AFFECTED BY FUKUSHIMA RADIATION

Mutations are not supposed to happen except for once in a VERY long time.. Now the mutations are much more common, and mass die offs are becoming the norm along the whole coast of the Pacific from Alaska to Mexico, where they used to be just a local event.

Cataclysmic February 5, 2015
from 2013 “A quick scan with a dosimeter revealed that the sea lion was radioactive. More careful measurements disclosed a shocking 0.48 microsieverts in the heart and liver region. The second most affected area was its rear flippers, probably due to repeated contact with fecal excretions. The nose and mouth were a bit less contaminated.
Surprisingly, the intestines showed hardly any sign of radioactive residues. The lack of any fishy odor in the water oozing out of the gut indicated the sea lion had not eaten for a long while before dying.
…The internal readings suggest the probable cause of death as ingestion of radioactive feed, mainly through fish in its diet (and algae inside the fishes’ bellies) and secondarily immersion in seawater. Moving from the digestive tract into the bloodstream, nuclear isotopes were bio-accumulated in the internal organs, especially cesium concentrating in the heart muscle. Cesium is known to cause irregular beat, cell abnormalities, muscle atrophy and spasms leading to a seizure and cardiac arrest.”
FUKUSHIMA RADIATION FOUND IN PACIFIC OCEAN TUNA
Pro nuclear experts say that they ‘tested’ the salmon (without giving crucial details about how they did it, and not saying what kind of equipment they used, or even what they tested for) and the salmon supposedly showed up ‘clean’. But in another case, tuna were tested and elevated cesium levels were found in ALL of the tuna in 2011. Only ONE test was done on tuna and then nothing after that. No plans are in place for doing any further tests. Does this lack of testing make any sense, other than to protect the tuna and fishing industry?
A nuclear expert in the video above explains that interior chronic and cumulative long term radioactivity exposure is MUCH different from an xray, or a plane flight, and that it is a very valid concern. The next connection is going to be made in the future, as these man made radioactive elements travel and concentrate up the food chain from these plants and animals into humans and bio accumulate, over the years.

It would be wise to test for heavy metals like cesium in hair or blood, or have a whole body INTERNAL radiation load check, if your insurance covers it and you are having low dose radiation exposure symptoms. Start by having your kids tested with a whole body radiation scan, because they are much more sensitive to radiation than adults. Any radiation problems will more than likely show up with them first.
