Fukushima Radiation Contaminated Green Tea Has Been And Is Still Being Sold In Japan


http://youtu.be/WKTJ47R-hNw

As the narrator explains, green tea far away from the Fukushima area has been found to contain radiation from Fukushima. Levels as high as 1,000 bq/kg have been found in green tea. In one case a large commercial amount of tea was sent back to Japan from France, because of this 1,000 bq/kg radiation reading. 
Remember that any green tea being sold and having less than the radiation maximum allowed level does not make the green tea ‘safe’. In Japan, the maximum allowed is 100 Bq/kg, but in the US, it is 1,000 Bq/kg, so radioactive waste in Japan can legally be allowed to be sold in the US as food or drink. Children who accumulate as little as 10 to 50 Bq/kg internal radiation show negative health effects, according to studies done around Chernobyl on 300,000 children.

Effects Of Internal Low Level Nuclear Radiation
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/p/effects-of-internal-low-level-nuclear.html

Protect yourself and get informed. The Fukushima radiation disaster is not over, it is just starting. No one is going to protect you or your loved ones, as the narrator explains above. If you don’t care what you eat or drink and don’t measure the radiation levels, odds are no one else will either, because the pressure to make a quick profit is much higher than the caring about whether you or your kids get cancer or not 5 to 20 years from now due to low dose radiation contamination of food or tea.

Low Level Nuclear Radiation In Food And Water
Remember, it is very easy to say all radiation is safe, or radiation is harmless and then sell stuff. Just because someone says it is organic, does not make it radiation free. There is no standard for organic products having to contain zero radiation.


The tea above tested 200% above normal background radiation in the US in 2012. It is labeled ‘organic’, and it is from Japan. But the same thing can happen if the tea is from around Chernobyl, or TMI, or any other radiation contaminated area. The only way to protect yourself is to do a test on your dried food product with a high quality pancake style radiation detector. See Geiger counter articles for more details on this.

 It is much harder and may take a sacrifice to be honest and actually care about health, tell the truth and aim for 0 to 5 bq/kg radiation in products, or not sell them at all.  AGRP recommends the maximum limits in food or drink should be no higher than 5 bq/kg for cesium specifically, especially when it comes to kids and pregnant moms, who are much more sensitive to the same radiation, when compared to adults. Stay safe out there, AGRP has your back.

2014 – Global Ocean Fishery Tipping Point Report

FISHERY DEFINITION

Global harvest of aquatic organisms in million tonnes, 1950–2010, as reported by the FAO [1]
Wikipedia; “A fishery is an area with an associated fish or aquatic population which is harvested for its commercial value. Fisheries can be marine (saltwater) or freshwater. They can also be wild or farmed. This article is an overview of the habitats occupied by the worlds’ wild fisheries, and the human impacts on those habitats.
Wild fisheries are sometimes called capture fisheries. The aquatic life they support is not controlled in any meaningful way and needs to be “captured” or fished.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wild_fisheries

COLLAPSE DEFINITION


According to Stanford University; a collapse of a fishery population is defined as 90% or more of the original number of that species has disappeared, starting from their original, sustainable baseline population. 
http://news.stanford.edu/news/2006/november8/ocean-110806.html

Now that the definitions are understood, let’s apply them to just a few of the many specific examples. The following list is not by any means complete but serves to provide a meaningful guide so that a general understanding of the problem can be grasped by the average person.

WHALE FISHERY COLLAPSED

Almost everyone is familiar with the collapse of the ocean whale fishery. Many whale species almost went extinct due to over fishing. Today, whales are a protected species, and the numbers of whales are slowly recovering. The same thing that happened to cause the collapse of all whale populations is or has  happened globally to other species of large fish.

“The earliest over fishing occurred in the early 1800s when humans, seeking blubber for lamp oil, decimated the whale population.”

ADULT TUNA, HALIBUT FISHERY COLLAPSED

It is so rare to catch an adult tuna nowadays, that bidding wars drive the price of that rare fish into the 1 million dollar range. But that collapse of the adult tuna population has not slowed the consumer demand and pressure on this species, which are being hunted to extinction. The pursuit of the few remaining fish has created for profit bounty hunters, all seeking the Holy Grail and financial jackpot of the few remaining adult fish. The only tuna being caught nowadays are the juvenile tuna, but at some point, even those will disappear. When the decline of tuna reaches the point where no adults can breed, tuna in the wild can and will go extinct. Regionally, this has already happened, but it can and will happen globally as well. 
“Tens of thousands of bluefin tuna were caught every year in the North Sea in the 1930s and 1940s. Today, they have disappeared across the seas of Northern Europe. Halibut has suffered a similar fate, largely vanishing from the North Atlantic in the 19th century.”
“The Australian government alleged in 2006 that Japan illegally overfished southern bluefin tuna by taking 12,000 to 20,000 tonnes per year instead of the their agreed 6,000 tonnes; the value of such overfishing would be as much as USD $2 billion.

Such overfishing has resulted in severe damage to stocks. “Japan’s huge appetite for tuna will take the most sought-after stocks to the brink of commercial extinction unless fisheries agree on more rigid quotas” stated the WWF.[81][82] Japan disputes this figure, but acknowledges that some overfishing has occurred in the past.[83]

Jackson, Jeremy B C et al. (2001) Historical overfishing and the recent collapse of coastal ecosystems Science 293:629-638.”

SCALLOPS, SHARKS  FISHERY COLLAPSING

Wikipedia; “Some specific examples of over fishing. On the east coast of the United States, the availability of bay scallops has been greatly diminished by the over fishing of sharks in the area. A variety of sharks have, until recently, fed on rays, which are a main predator of bay scallops. With the shark population reduced, in some places almost totally gone, the rays have been free to dine on scallops to the point of greatly decreasing their numbers.”

OYSTER  FISHERY COLLAPSING

Chesapeake Bay’s once-flourishing oyster populations historically filtered the estuary’s entire water volume of excess nutrients every three or four days. Today that process takes almost a year,[80] and sediment, nutrients, and algae can cause problems in local waters. Oysters filter these pollutants, and either eat them or shape them into small packets that are deposited on the bottom where they are harmless.”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wild_fisheries

Where fresh water rivers enter the ocean is a zone that is supposed to harbor and support the cradle of life. Many ocean species depend on the river estuaries for a part of their life cycle. But due to unsustainable modern chemical based agriculture and living methods, rivers have become death zones. Where rivers enter the oceans, oceanic dead zones are growing at the mouths of those rivers, expanding in size and growing in number each year. Oceanic animals, fish and other species are getting sick and dying. As the ocean dead zones and garbage gyres grow, the oceans are becoming more and more polluted, acidic, radioactive and warmer, thus moving towards total global life extinction, slowly but surely. 

SALMON  FISHERY COLLAPSED

Their populations have disappeared from large areas where they used to flourish,[2] shrinking by as much as 40 percent.[3] (AGRP estimates this total loss of population may be much larger, perhaps as large as 95-99%, compared to the days before dams, mining, agriculture, clearcutting and habitat reduction.)
Huge numbers of salmon used to be common in rivers year round on a global basis, with different runs made up of different kinds of salmon. Their numbers were so large that the sound of salmon splashing over sandbanks on the way up the river would keep people living near the river from sleeping for weeks at a time, because it sounded like a waterfall, due to the large number of fish. One estimate is that just one run of fish would number 500,000 fish.

Indians used to catch and then dry the salmon by the multiple wagon load for the winter. But that all ended when the dams went in, permanently blocking all migrating fish from going to their spawning grounds. As each dam was put in a river, the salmon disappeared. Today, there are only a miniscule small number of fish returning compared to what used to be there. Sometimes there is only one run compared to the former four runs that went on throughout the year, and that one small run needs the help of a hatchery to even survive at all.

Up to 75% of the former spawning habitat of the many and varied species of salmon has disappeared, and in cases of salmon who spawn at high altitudes in the spring, 100% of their habitat is now completely out of reach, behind dams. The spring salmon runs are now completely gone on all rivers with dams. 

file:///C:/Users/owner/Downloads/HistoricalAndPresentDistribution.pdf

The chief threats to salmon survival are the following: high dams and other obstructions; pollution from domestic and industrial causes, including pest-control spraying; and reduction of stream flows through deforestation, siltation, concreting in streams/rivers and irrigation. (AGRP adds human caused global warming, droughts and river warming effects, plus radiation and chemicals.)
“California began hauling 30 million young Chinook salmon hundreds of miles toward the Pacific Ocean in tanker trucks to save the fishing industry after a record drought left rivers too low for migration.”
Starting the salmon count in 1950, after many dams on formerly salmon rich rivers had gone in, thereby causing the collapse of existing salmon stocks by perhaps 95%, here is the global salmon catch starting from that point; 
It is obvious that salmon populations have collapsed from their former glory days. Salmon populations globally are collapsing further from there, with a few exceptions, where dams are being taken out and salmon are being reintroduced. Since 1950, the tiny remainder of global wild stocks of salmon have collapsed another 75% up to they year 2010. The new ‘norm’ is to have only one salmon ‘run’ with several thousands of fish returning, compared to an old norm of having a river numbering millions of salmon going up it, all year long. 
2009 – To give one example; “In the fall of 2009, just 2,236 salmon returned to the entire river system to spawn; this has led to a government ban on salmon fishing off the coasts of northern California and Oregon.[127]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Joaquin_River

2010 – Still, the crashing Sacramento River salmon population is suggesting to some observers that what once was the state’s biggest salmon run has reached a turning point. “These are at extinction levels,” Spain said. “These are not even enough fish coming back to replace this generation.

2013 – Unprecedented: Sockeye salmon at dire historic low on Canada’s Pacific coast — “We think something happened in the ocean” — “The elders have never seen anything like this at all” — Alaska and Russia also affected (MAP)
Aquaculture production in thousand tonnes as reported by the FAO, 1950–2010 [11]
Since the global collapse of the wild salmon fishery, aquaculture salmon farms and GMO salmon have been developed and approved.  Despite being successful financially, these engineered salmon and fish farms have caused other problems that are speeding up the collapse of the wild fishery, by introducing new diseases, genetic problems and pests. Since 3/11 and the Fukushima mega nuclear disaster, the salmon fishery seems to have been negatively affected even more by low dose radiation.

COD, HERRING, SARDINES FISHERY  COLLAPSED

National Geographic: “Atlantic cod and herring and California’s sardines, were also harvested to the brink of extinction by the mid-1900s. Highly disruptive to the food chain, these isolated, regional depletions became global and catastrophic by the late 20th century.”
2011 – Biologist: Pacific herring in Canada bleeding from eyeballs, faces, fins, tails — I’ve never seen fish looking this bad — All 100 examined were bloody — Officials informed of hemorrhaging soon after 3/11 — Gov’t ignoring problem (PHOTO)
They’re All Gone”: Shock as sardines vanish off CaliforniaFishermen didn’t find a single one all summer — Scientist: This is about the entire Pacific coast… Canada, Mexico, U.S. — NOAA: We don’t know why; The young aren’t surviving

SEA BIRD POPULATION  COLLAPSE

Just 1% of usual number of baby California pelicans; “Nearly complete failure to breed”; Only 20 newborns in area where 10,000 expected — Expert: ‘Flabbergasted’ by what’s happening in Malibu, “I’ve never seen anything like that” (AUDIO)…..
Kathy Molina, biologist: “This should be just a cacophony of Caspian terns, and gull-billed terns and skimmers. They should all be coming in with food, feeding their chicks, vocalizing to their mates or their chicks. This is really quiet.”
The populations of pelicans, sea birds, seals, killer whales and other top predators have been collapsing since 2011. Populations before settlers arrived were in the millions, but are now small fractions of that former number. The number of young being born and raised to adulthood are not sufficient to replace the current population. 

TURTLE POPULATION COLLAPSED

A few local increases largely due to strong conservation efforts and local protection laws are far outweighed by many turtle population collapses and extinctions globally, especially of island populations, and the demise of once large populations, such as in Malaysia.
One example; “Monitoring of the nesting assemblage at Mexiquillo has been continuous since the 1983-1984 breeding season, making it the longest leatherback monitoring program in México, and one of the most complete databases for this species in the world. Since 1986 the population at Mexiquillo has been in a continuous decline, with a particularly low year in 1993-1994 (Sarti et al., 1994) (Figure 1)”
The best recorded turtle population above, based on number of nests, has collapsed from 6,500 in 1986 to less than 500 in 1994. 
LEATHERBACK
“The leatherback turtle has survived for more than 100 million years, but is now facing extinction. Recent estimates of numbers show that this species is declining precipitously throughout its range.”
HAWKSBILL
The 2007 analyses of populations at 25 Index Sites around the world show a decline of 88.3 to 90.8% in the number of females nesting annually over the last three hawksbill generations (105 years in the Atlantic and 135 years in the Indo-Pacific).
http://www.conserveturtles.org/velador.php?page=velart70

LOGGERHEAD
Annual mean zone-level nest density declined significantly (-28%; 95% CI: -34% to -21%) between 1989 and 2006 and declined steeply (-43%; 95% CI: -48% to -39%) during 1998-2006.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19323172

GREEN
Analyses of historic and recent abundance information by the MTSG indicates that extensive population declines have occurred in all major ocean basins over approximately the past 100-150 years. The MTSG analyzed population trends at 32 index nesting sites around the world and found a 48-65% decline in the number of mature females nesting annually over the past 100-150 years.
http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/pr/species/turtles/green.htm

“With the advent of new gear and boat technologies, fishing has become one of the greatest sources of mortality to sea turtles around the globe. Each of the six sea turtle species found in United States waters is listed as either endangered or threatened under the Endangered Species Act which means that they may go extinct in the foreseeable future.”

PREDICTION OF ALL GLOBAL OCEAN FISHERIES COLLAPSING

 

Wikipedia; “Many marine species are under increasing risk of extinction and marine biodiversity is undergoing potentially irreversible loss due to threats such as overfishing, bycatch, climate change, invasive species and coastal development.
By 2008, the IUCN had assessed about 3,000 marine species. This includes assessments of known species of shark, ray, chimaera, reef-building coral, grouper, marine turtle, seabird, and marine mammal. Almost one-quarter (22%) of these groups have been listed as threatened.[85]
Stanford University; Science study predicts collapse of all seafood fisheries by 2050 – Based on current global trends, the authors predicted that every species of wild-caught seafood—from tuna to sardines—will collapse by the year 2050. “Collapse” was defined as a 90 percent depletion of the species’ baseline abundance.
National Geographic; Overfishing – Ocean overfishing is simply the taking of wildlife from the sea at rates too high for fished species to replace themselves. The earliest overfishing occurred in the early 1800s when humans, seeking blubber for lamp oil, decimated the whale population. Some fish that we eat, including Atlantic cod and herring and California’s sardines, were also harvested to the brink of extinction by the mid-1900s. Highly disruptive to the food chain, these isolated, regional depletions became global and catastrophic by the late 20th century. 

CNN – Overfished and under-protected: Oceans on the brink of catastrophic collapse
The Census of Marine Life, a decade-long international survey of ocean life completed in 2010, estimated that 90% of the big fish had disappeared from the world’s oceans, victims primarily of overfishing. “Anywhere you go and try to harvest fish with a trawl you are going to destroy any coral that lives there, and there is example after example of the damage that is done by trawlers. Ron O’Dor, senior scientist on the Census of Marine Life

GLOBAL FISHING FLEET SIZE 

World Wildlife Fund; “Our oceans are being plundered – The global fishing fleet is 2-3 times larger than what the oceans can sustainably support. ” What is the answer? 

Buy sustainable seafood. By purchasing MSC-certified seafood products, consumers, retailers, and traders are helping to encourage and reward responsible fisheries. Without the MSC label, your seafood may well stem from illegally fished or overfished sources. Take a look at our seafood guides today!

More severe threats remain to the world’s oceans, such as the following:

Acidification Tipping Point

Wikipedia; “The oceans are normally a natural carbon sink, absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Because the levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide are increasing, the oceans are becoming more acidic.[75][76] The potential consequences of ocean acidification are not fully understood, but there are concerns that structures made of calcium carbonate may become vulnerable to dissolution, affecting corals and the ability of shellfish to form shells.[77]
A report from NOAA scientists published in the journal Science in May 2008 found that large amounts of relatively acidified water are upwelling to within four miles of the Pacific continental shelf area of North America. This area is a critical zone where most local marine life lives or is born. While the paper dealt only with areas from Vancouver to northern California, other continental shelf areas may be experiencing similar effects.[78]

Eutrophication/Dead Zones Tipping Point

The number and size of dead zones in the world’s oceans are growing and spreading wider. 

Effect of eutrophication on marine benthic life

Wikipedia; “Eutrophication is an increase in chemical nutrients, typically compounds containing nitrogen or phosphorus, in an ecosystem. It can result in an increase in the ecosystem’s primary productivity (excessive plant growth and decay), and further effects including lack of oxygen and severe reductions in water quality, fish, and other animal populations. 
The biggest culprit are rivers that empty into the ocean, and with it the many chemicals used as fertilizers in agriculture as well as waste from livestock and humans. An excess of oxygen depleting chemicals in the water can lead to hypoxia and the creation of a dead zone.[69]
Surveys have shown that 54% of lakes in Asia are eutrophic; in Europe, 53%; in North America, 48%; in South America, 41%; and in Africa, 28%.[70] Estuaries also tend to be naturally eutrophic because land-derived nutrients are concentrated where run-off enters the marine environment in a confined channel. 
The World Resources Institute has identified 375 hypoxic coastal zones around the world, concentrated in coastal areas in Western Europe, the Eastern and Southern coasts of the US, and East Asia, particularly in Japan.[71] In the ocean, there are frequent red tide algae blooms[72] that kill fish and marine mammals and cause respiratory problems in humans and some domestic animals when the blooms reach close to shore. (red tide algae thrive in chemical/nutrient rich waters that come from agribusiness and sewage runoff from cities)
In addition to land runoff, atmospheric anthropogenic fixed nitrogen can enter the open ocean. A study in 2008 found that this could account for around one third of the ocean’s external (non-recycled) nitrogen supply and up to three per cent of the annual new marine biological production.[73] It has been suggested that accumulating reactive nitrogen in the environment may have consequences as serious as putting carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.[74]” 

OCEAN RADIATION TIPPING POINT

It is well known that the immune system is compromised by low level radiation.
It is documented that low level radiation contamination is happening in the Pacific, at levels that are orders of magnitude higher than all previous radiation releases, including the 2,400 open air nuclear bomb ‘tests’. 
It is documented that sea lions, seals, polar bears and now fish have all suffered from sores, hair loss, and internal damage, all in roughly the same time period, right after 3/11, to now.
Local areas might have had diseases and die offs before this point. What is different now is that the fish and marine (plus land) animals (since 3/11) have all suffered from a HUGE mortality/die off rate in the Pacific ocean all the way from Alaska down to Mexico, which has NEVER happened before in recorded history, not even in the American Indian or Eskimo tribe history.

The biologists could NOT find any bacteria or virus to blame. Science is about looking for cause and effect.. Yes, it could be disease. This was ruled out. Yes, it could be methane, but could that be a cause across thousands of miles of ocean? What is much more likely as a root cause, because there is a definite release of HUGE amounts of radiation, and then right after that, a massive die off of sea animals happened, plus high radiation readings in seaweed, plankton and algae were measured, is low level radiation, consisting of  up to 9 tons of 1,200 man made radioactive elements that came out of Fukushima on 3/11.

The Pacific ocean has experienced mass die offs of fish, starfish, and seals since the spring of 2001, right after Fukushima… What is the next step going to be?

SUMMARY

According to the UN Environment Programme, the Earth is in the midst of a mass extinction of life. Scientists estimate that 150-200 species of plant, insect, bird and mammal become extinct every 24 hours.
This extinction is happening both on land and in the ocean, as more garbage, radioactive waste, chemicals, and acid is pouring into the world’s oceans. The ocean dead zones are growing in number and size. As oceans become acid and as more garbage and radiation is pumped and dumped into the oceans, this then bio accumulates and bio concentrates up to humans via the food web, and puts more extinction causing stress and pressure on all living species in the ocean.

There are many more negative tipping points (link below) that also have an effect on all seafood and the web of life in the oceans that humans rely on. As oceans become more polluted and acidic, the few species that benefit are toxic bacteria/algae and jellyfish, which thrive in this environment. In turn, as these species become more abundant, they are the DIRECT cause of the extinction of all fishery life where they thrive. In some places globally, there are only jellyfish and toxic algae/bacteria existing, but no other life or fish can be found. Due to numerous negative tipping points, the web of life is being unraveled, one thread of life, one species going extinct at a time, accelerating faster and faster, in the wrong direction.

As the ocean blanket/web of life unravels, because one species may support a dozen or a hundred other species, the rate of extinction of species will gather speed and momentum, until a global tipping point is reached, beyond which there is no return. 

The ocean’s animals are warning us; do not keep going down this road.. The environment is also giving us notice, via numerous tipping points. Do not go down this road. All life and unseen helpers are shouting out; Warning, Warning. Danger, Danger, cliff ahead. Humanity (so far at least) is driving faster and faster towards the edge of the cliff. 

2014 List of 45+ Global Tipping Points, Many Of Them Have Been Reached Or Exceeded, Almost All Are Getting Worse; via @AGreenRoad

Further mass die offs, collapses, reductions in fishery catches and extinctions are predicted, because the threats to the oceans and all life in it are not being addressed adequately. More and more pressure is being placed on the animals and top predators that depend on fishery stocks to survive, such as killer whales, seals, walruses, polar bears, whales, etc. 


The small global village of humanity living on a dust mote in a sunbeam needs to learn  the science of sustainable health, as taught be A Green Road Project. There is a way of living and doing business in a way that does not harm our oceans, which is the cradle of the largest miracle; which is called life. There are more species in the ocean than on land. Two or three generations are responsible for the extinction of many species of life, which took millions of years to evolve. 

Geologically speaking, all life on Earth is being extinguished in a nano second. What right do humans have to deprive countless future generations of life? What right do humans have to take away the jewel like miracle of life on this planet?
How would you feel, if you knew that you were at least partially responsible, either through inaction to stop this, and/or through actions that caused this to happen by living in a way that helps create one of those negative tipping points?
What kind of lifestyle do we all have to live to make sure the oceans  and all species in it stay healthy and at sustainable levels of population? What kind of lifestyle do we have to adopt so that seven future generations can also enjoy the life of the ocean and eat healthy seafood? Certainly, our present course is not sustainable; that much should be VERY obvious. The most important thing we can do is to learn and teach the science of sustainable health, and then take actions to correct the unsustainable tipping points, as a global rainbow village.

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.

Hawaii Blasted By HUGE Wave Of Fukushima Radiation, During President Obama’s Visit

The Obama family vacation appears to have been cut short, coinciding with 3x Hazmat level radiation readings in Hawaii…MSM running year-old photo of Obama swimming, provided by the WH…and besides a hike to a waterfall and ‘possible’ beach excursion by his kids, the Obama’s appeared to have spent most of their Hawaian vacation indoors. Who the hell goes to Hawaii and doesn’t swim in the ocean? People who know whats blowing and floating in from Fukushima, that’s who…I know this entire video is based on speculation but at some point you need to decide if you truly believe in coincidence.
Vacation dates according to Reuters (if correct Obama and family left Hawaii 4 days early) Article states: “Before leaving Washington on Friday evening (the 21st), Obama urged Congress to come up with a stopgap measure to spare the U.S. economy the jolt of $600 billion in tax increases and spending cuts economists say would likely derail the economy”:http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/1…

Fukushima Harbor Fish Measured With 740,000 Bq/Kg Cesium


TEPCO released radiation figures, which can also be found at the ENE link below, with peak radiation readings of 740,000 Bq/Kg in fish that were caught inside the Fukushima harbor as of March 2013.

The picture below shows the location of the places where fish were caught.The highest reading yet, was originally detailed at ENENews.com 

January 18, 2013
Cesium in fish off Chiba coast exceeds radiation limit for first time — 200 kilometers from Fukushima plant — Due east of Tokyo February 18, 2013
NHK: Highest radiation levels ever detected in fish at Fukushima plant — Over 5,000 times gov’t limit February 28, 2013


Tepco Handout: http://www.tepco.co.jp/nu/fukushima-np/f1/smp/2013/images/fish

It is important to understand that these radiation readings are the highest yet recorded in fish, since the Fukushima mega disaster happened on 3/2011. Radiation readings in fish and in ocean water should be coming down, not going up. 


Something VERY BAD is happening at Fukushima that is causing these higher radiation readings. No one seems to know what is going on. No one seems to know how to stop this mega disaster from polluting the ocean with huge amounts of radiation.

An ice wall will not work since the 3 coriums escaped from the reactors and are now deep beneath the Earth. Building an ice wall that will take two years to complete will only delay dealing with reality, as the situation at Fukushima becomes much worse.
In response to what seems like a worsening radiation problem over time, South Korea has banned all fish products from Japan, coming from a total of 8 regions. 
But it is not just about fish around Japan. Globally, the last two years after Fukushima have seen a collapse of the seal, walrus, polar bear and salmon populations all the way from Alaska to the bottom of California. One researcher found that all 100 herring in a sample catch were all exhibiting the same signs that the seals, walruses, and polar bears were. 


More details about the effect of low level radiation on animals is available at the links below, as we are summarizing them here. 

Something big and horrible is happening in the Pacific ocean, and the ‘authorities’ do not seem to want to find out what is behind it. 

Bottom line, it took more than two years for South Korea to take action. It would not be surpising for other nations to follow the example of South Korea, which seems to be trying to protect it’s citizens.

Let’s summarize, shall we? 

Back about 2 years ago, Fukushima was declared ‘cold shutdown’. Since then, radiation levels in fish have been increasing, not decreasing;

In Jan. 2013, fish had     250,000 Bq/kg maximum levels
In Feb. 2013, fish had    500,000 Bq/kg maximum levels
In March 2013, fish had 740,000 Bq/kg maximum levels

By now, the radiation levels are probably over the lethal levels; no fish will survive in the testing area with radiation going up at the rates indicated above… 

The Japanese are not taking this mega radioactive disaster seriously. Our conclusion, based on the above FACTS, is that the nuclear industry, the regulators, the nuclear scientists and Japanese government  are covering up 99% of what is going on, even to this day. And that is not a hopeful sign for solving this mega nuclear disaster. Denial is such a terrible waste of time.

Is the Floating Japanese Tsunami Debris Radioactive Or Hazardous?

West Coast Report in video above. 

Hawaii Report in video above; includes information on plastics from Japan going into birds and fish. 

One thing is known about plastic and probably also about the styrofoam floating around in the ocean; it all absorbs lots of chemicals and heavy metals. Wouldn’t this fact include radioactive elements from Fukushima as well? After all, most of the elements coming out of Fukushima were ‘heavy metals’.

Remember that the Fukushima mega disaster did not happen until well after the tsunami, after all that debris had washed out into the ocean, down wind of Fukushima. 80% of the radiation from Fukushima went over the ocean, and also settled on the debris field. 


Once plastic and styrofoam enters the water, the ocean breaks down the chunks into smaller pieces over time, which get ingested in birds, fish, etc. The heavy metals and chemicals go along with the plastic into the wildlife. This much is fact, as pointed to in the Hawaii video. So no matter where the radioactive debris ends up, it all goes into the fish and birds, no matter what. Once the plastic is in the fish, it goes up the food chain to humans. 


Fish bio concentrate radiation just like all other animals, insects and birds. 


Animals And Plants; Low Level Radiation Effects
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/p/animals-and-low-level-radiation-effects.html


To claim that ‘no radiation’ will come from Japan to the US via the debris is ignoring reality. The only question is; how much, and in which ways will it impact fisheries, wild animals on sea shore and humans at the top of the food chain? It may take years to see the full impact, once the debris hits the Western shores of the USA
Pictures of the Japanese tsunami debris washing ashore in Alaska at bottom of article
From NOAA:
“The Japanese government estimated that the tsunami swept about 5 million tons of debris into the ocean, but that 70 percent sank off shore, leaving 1.5 million tons floating. There is no estimate of how much of that debris is still floating, now that it has been at sea for more than a year.
We do know that the debris is no longer in a mass. Rather, many items are scattered across an area of the North Pacific that is roughly three times the size of the continental United States.
NOAA anticipates that in the late fall and throughout the winter of 2012-2013, seasonal changes in North Pacific winds and currents will cause marine debris of mixed types to wash ashore on western coastlines of North America. Hawaii can also expect to see mixed debris during this time, since debris will likely travel west toward the Main Hawaiian Island with ocean currents. 
This debris will likely intermittently scatter along the coast, as was observed in 2011-2012. These expectations are based on general debris behavior, model outputs, and patterns in at-sea sightings reports that all point to debris being widely dispersed over large areas.
The NOAA model shows that bulk of the debris is likely still dispersed north of the Main Hawaiian Islands and east of Midway Atoll. Beachgoers may notice an increase in debris on beaches over many years, in addition to marine debris that normally washes up, depending on where ocean currents carry it.”
“A joint EPA and California-led interagency guideline to be put into effect stipulates that most floating or ‘beached’ debris from Japan registering under 2 millirem per hour will not be considered a radioactive source.” 
(2 millirem equals 20 microsieverts)
The nuclear industry has been polluting the oceans with radiation since the 1940’s, non stop. The nuclear marketing agency IAEA claim that all of this radiation dumped in the ocean does not cause any harm to human beings or sea creatures. 


If that is true, then why are there stories like this one coming out?  “If you haven’t been to a California beach lately, you probably don’t know that the rocks are unnaturally CLEAN – there’s hardly any kelp, barnacles, sea urchins, etc. anymore and the tide pools are similarly eerily devoid of crabs, snails and other scurrying signs of life… especially compared to 10 – 15 years ago…

http://planet.infowars.com/outdoors/california-coastline-becoming-like-dead-zone-fukushima-to-blame



The above 1 hour video gives much more information about Fukushima. From one of those interviewed in the video; 

“Yet, even though these are ionized materials that are not going to be washed off by ocean wave activity, we have representatives and state officials here in the United States who are downplaying the potential contamination and radioactivity in the tsunami debris. And that’s one thing we’re very concerned about.”


Japan Plans To Evacuate 40 Million Citizens; Russia Shocked; via A Green Road
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/04/japan-plans-to-evacuate-40-million.html


Japan came very close to evacuating Tokyo, and some experts say that it should still be evacuated, because it was hit hard by radiation right after #3 exploded and released a massive amount of radiation and plutonium from MOX fuel, which is 1 million times more toxic than uranium fuel by itself. 

In summary, just to be safe, do not touch or handle and debris that is washed ashore, especially if you do not have a radiation detector with you.

Will The 2020 Olympics In Tokyo Japan Endanger Health Of Athletes With Low Level Fukushima Radiation?


Dr. Busby warns about the dangers of low dose radiation found in Tokyo and other parts of Japan. He explains the details in his book. An air conditioning filter was found with over 100,000 Bq/kg of Cesium. The filter was on the 20th floor of a high rise building in the middle of Tokyo. 

The IOC awarded Japan the 2020 Olympics, to be held in Tokyo Japan in September of 2013. It is a well guarded secret that Tokyo is a radioactively contaminated area, which actually should be evacuated, just like the exclusion zones around Chernobyl. 

Japan Plans To Evacuate 40 Million Citizens; Russia Shocked; via A Green Road
Japan came very close to evacuating Tokyo, and some experts say that it should still be evacuated, because it was hit hard by radiation right after #3 exploded and released a massive amount of radiation. 

Watch the two videos to find out more about this.. In the video below, Arnie Gunderson, a nuclear expert, gathered five samples of soil from Tokyo at random and tested them for radiation. ALL of the samples tested positive for radioactive contamination, high enough to be required to be disposed of as hazardous nuclear waste in the United States. 


Few people realize that when Unit #3 at Fukushima Daichi exploded, the wind shifted and the black smoke and explosion contents from #3 went directly over Tokyo. #3 had MOX fuel, which contains plutonium, the most toxic substance on Earth. For two days, the winds blew over Tokyo, while their Iodine 131 radiation levels spiked really high, well over allowed drinking water limits. 


Massive amounts of plutonium, cesium, uranium, strontium plus 1,000 other radioactive elements fell on Tokyo, the surrounding hills and their water supply, and those radioactive elements can still be measured today, at dangerous levels. Radioactive gases such as Xenon, Krypton and Argon wafted through everyone’s lungs. ‘Hot’ radioactive particles and nano sized buckyballs were breathed in by everyone on the planet. For more information about this, click on the following link, and look for articles related to Unit #3 at Fukushima. 

  
Nuclear Accidents, Recycling Nuclear Weapons/Fuel
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/p/nuclear-accidents-around-world.html


So why are the citizens of Japan not being warned? Why is the mass media so quiet about this? Could it be that the expense of moving 30 million people and relocating them out of Tokyo makes it so expensive that it is unfeasible? 

Could it be that the horror of this disaster is so large, so huge, that the ONLY reasonable solution is to cover up the whole thing? Could it be that they are sticking with the #3 hydrogen explosion story because they do not want the world to know what REALLY happened there? 

Could it be that the Fukushima mega nuclear disaster is so bad, that this is why it makes sense from the nuclear industry perspective the ‘best’ solution is to pretend that everything is normal, and that all of Japan is ‘safe’? 

Could it be that in order to try and save face, and possibly delay Japan from the coming financial collapse, plus generate some much needed income, one solution was to hold the Olympics in Tokyo, despite the hazards to athletes, visitors and citizens? They succeeded in accomplishing that goal. But there will be consequences for the citizens, visitors and athletes. You cannot stay in a contaminated radiation zone that should have been evacuated, just like the areas around Chernobyl were, without risk… 

Another solution was to generate large amounts of desperately needed cash was to sell nuclear reactors to other countries, with a goal of saving Japan from complete financial collapse. They are succeeding in that goal as well, short term, but what price will be paid long term in those countries after they experience what Japan is experiencing now?

Bottom line, Japan is bankrupt. They and the financial world that invested 5 Trillion in a dead end, life destroying nuclear power industry just have not acknowledged the reality of the Fukushima mega nuclear disaster yet. 

The negative financial impacts are going to be felt in future years in an accelerating manner, no matter what positive ‘spin’ or propoganda is produced by the nuclear industry, their associated supporters in the corporate owned mass media, universities and the pro nuclear apologists. 

So what can the average organization or individual do about this seeming nightmare scenario? In regards to the Olympics, it is possible to file a General Rule 69 Violation against the International Olympic Community for Endangering Olympic Athletes and visitors. 

It is also possible to boycott the 2020 Olympics, not watch it on TV and urge others to do the same. Make your voice and influence heard. 
The rule is there. Look it up at www.USOlympic.org  



Kevin Blanch is predicting that the 2020 Olympics will not happen in Tokyo. Listen to his reasoning in the video above. He has predicted a lot of things, and he has been right on for everything we have seen so far. Time will tell. 

It is possible to spread this article around by copying the url below. It is also possible to sue the IOC, Japan, TEPCO and all associated nuclear entities, because they KNOW what they are doing. Who are they trying to fool? They know Tokyo is contaminated with radiation and plutonium specifically. 

How many athletes and visitors will end up being harmed or killed by going to Tokyo for the Olympics in 2020? Will they really end up happening there, or will they be canceled as Kevin Blanch predicts? Time will tell.  We end with a poem by Or-well.

The TepJGovCo Baby
gets the Olympic Spirit!

“Hi Everybody!
Look! They gave me an Olympic Torch –
LED and a battery, so I don’t get scorched!
And I got a TV so I can watch,
as I’m not allowed out past our porch
because dirt is now something kids shouldn’t touch –
but we’ll all feel good seeing others play sports
and we can all dress up in t-shirts and shorts
and run and jump around in the house –
except I can’t as my nose bleeds if I do too much –
but it’s OK because hormesis makes babies strong
and I’ll be an Olympian before too long!
Remember – in Fukushima there’s nothing wrong!
Let’s sing the Tokyo Olympics Song!”

“CUT!
How in hell do cartoon babies get sick?
It’s Sad Spirit Crime to mess with these scripts!
Someone get our Yakuza Liason on this!
We’ll re-shoot without the “hormesis” bullshit
and no hint there’s anything wrong with the kid!”

or-well says
that’s what happens when you use contractors
and even cartoon lies can’t hide bad character
in upside-down Nuke World
full of psychopath actors.

List Of All Genetically Linked Diseases Caused By Low Level Radiation Exposure

Research done back in 1926 proved that even low doses of radiation can cause harm genetically speaking, as explained by Dr. Baxter. The ‘experts’ knew even back then that low doses of radiation were harmful to insects and human beings.

Remember, any one of these genetic ‘diseases’ can be caused by exposure to low doses of radiation, such as X-rays, low doses of radiation from a nuclear accident or nuclear bomb testing radiation fallout.



In the video above, listen to Dr. Helen Caldicott talk about the effects of radiation, and an estimate of what it would cost if a nuclear accident happened in the USA. 

She explains how the cancers and genetic diseases do not show up right away. These diseases and cancers have an incubation time of years, before they show up. Genetic diseases caused by low dose radiation do not show up until the next generation, and they get worse with each succeeding generation. 

Medical schools do not teach the genetic effects of low dose radiation to doctors. They also do not teach the harmful effects or symptoms of low dose radiation. Why not? As a matter of fact, most doctors believe in the hormesis theory, that radiation is actually good for you. Around Fukushima, the medical authorities are claiming that smiling will protect residents from radiation. 

Here are some of the most commonly found genetic diseases. But the full list of over 1,000 genetic diseases is available below via the link you can click on.

Hanford – Multiple Secret Green Runs Released 685K Curies Radioactive Iodine On Washington And Oregon


The video offers a reflection on the effect of radiation on children by Kay Sutherland, a Hanford downwinder from Walla Walla, Washington. Listen to her talking about the loss of her children and many other children in the graveyard, due to multiple, secret Green Run radioactive releases from the Hanford nuclear facility.

Dedicated to Kay Sutherland & Hanford downwinders.
For more information:
The Green Run(s)
Activities at Hanford resulted in the release of large amounts of radiation into the air, water and soil of the Northwest over several decades. Many of the radiation releases have exceeded permissible limits. 
Some of the radiation releases have admittedly been intentional, a way of conducting Cold War nuclear experiments on an unknowing and captive civilian population
All of it was done in the name of the national security and the rush to produce more and more plutonium.
The largest intentional release of radiation at Hanford occurred in 1949, and is known as the “Green Run.” The public was unaware of this event until some 40 years later, in the late 1980’s, when the DOE first declassified release reports acknowledging that the Green Run had occurred and then only after a newspaper reporter sued the agency.
Documents showed that Hanford intentionally and secretly released about 8,000 curies of radioactive iodine on Dec. 2, 1949. This was just one of many Green Runs. Allegedly the radiation was released to monitor the radioactive plume stretching across Oregon and Washington in hopes of evaluating equipment used in determining the location of similar Soviet plutonium production plants.
The Green Run was a huge release by any standard. The 1979 Three Mile Island accident released between 15 and 24 curies of radioactive iodine, several hundred times less than the Green Run, and nearby residents were evacuated from the area.
No one living downwind from Hanford was ever evacuated or warned of the Green Run or any of the other radioactive release from Hanford. Spanning more than 40 years, a set of 400 environmental documents were made public in 1986.
These documents revealed that Hanford regularly emitted radiation into the environment. Between 1944 and 1947 the total estimated radioactive Iodine released from Hanford was at least 685,000 Curies; a truly staggering amount.
Despite this fact, contractors working for the federal government at Hanford repeatedly informed the public that Hanford was safe. 
When the public asked nuclear experts and government authorities if Hanford was safe, they were told that “not one atom” had ever escaped from Hanford and that Hanford was as “safe as mother’s milk.”
The same lie continues on today. The nuclear industry has not changed one bit. If asked, nuclear ‘experts’ will claim that low level radiation is not harmful. Ask this mother if she believes this. The nuclear industry to this day is still performing unauthorized radiation experiments on a public that is NOT being informed of the dangers, nor the release amounts, what is in them, etc. Nothing has changed since the Green Run. If anything, the coverups have gotten worse.

Test Everything! Radioactive Potassium Found In Hotel

“A few months ago I stayed at a hotel room on a business trip which I found to be noticeably radioactive. The levels were (70 to 120 CPM vs. my 28 to 40 CPM background for the area). What confounded me most was that the readings were uniformly distributed throughout the entire hotel! What ever it was, it had to be at least 1 MeV in energy and gamma in nature… or so I suspected.

Just this week I returned to the same location and opted to stay in same hotel. This time I brought nearly $9,000 worth of equipment to find out why. This was a good first test of my new Polimaster 1703MO-1B gamma spectroscopic dosimeter, which should be able to identify the offending isotope and give me realistic dose rates. I was not let down!
The Polimaster identified the isotope involved as potassium 40 in a mere 60 minutes, but the results were plain to me in just ten minutes. I backed up these findings with my Spectrum Techniques UCS30 and my trusty Geiger counters (you always need a Geiger counter).”

Bottom line, the moral of the story is that these days, you are not safe just ‘trusting’ your food, your hotel, your car, and everything else to be ‘safe’. Everyone should have a pancake Geiger Counter and take it along to trips to the grocery store, shopping for clothes, on vacation, etc.

Radiation is invisible. There is no way to test EVERYTHING that goes to market to see if it is safe, on the manufacturing side, or so the government claims. They test at most 1% of what goes out and rely on companies to do the rest. We all know how well that works.

Buy a good Geiger Counter and test EVERYTHING, all the time. Your life and your families lives may very well depend on it, especially in these times of global scale disasters like Fukushima.
