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. 

What genetic diseases are linked to radiation? Scroll down to see the full list of all known genetic diseases, via Wikipedia. To see the original list go to;
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.

Free Online Movie; Fukushima Never Again

Fukushima Never Again :
Director: Steve Zeltzer | Producer: Steve Zeltzer
Genre: Documentary | Produced In: 2012 | Story Teller’s Country: United States

Synopsis: The film tells the story of the Japanese nuclear plant meltdown in 2011 and the cover-up by the Japanese government and TEPCO. The film documents how the nuclear energy program for “peaceful atoms” was forced on to the Japanese people, despite their opposition to all things nuclear, because they had just experienced Nagasaki and Hiroshima. But they had no choice, because they were under the control of a US military occupation led government, and that is what they wanted. 


The movie explores the criminal cover-up of the safety dangers of the plant by TEPCO and GE management, which built the plant in Fukushima. Included is an interview with Kei Sugaoka, the GE nuclear plant inspector from the bay area who exposed cover-ups in the safety at the Fukushima plant and was retaliated against by GE. 
The film features the voices of the people and workers about the reality of the disaster. It shows what this means not only for the people of Japan but the people of the world as the US government and nuclear industry continue to push for more new nuclear plants and government subsidies, despite the Fukushima mega disaster, which has been completely covered up and denied by the industry, regulators and governments, as they work hand in glove to protect the monopolistic nuclear industry.  
This film breaks the information blockade and the cover-up by the corporate media in Japan, the US and around the world that seeks to convince the public through corporate controlled mass media  pro nuclear propoganda that Fukushima is over, in cold shut down and everything is back to normal.
Request DVD: You may purchase the DVD of this film directly from this StoryTeller/Producer. Please visit.
Watch movie online at;

This movie documents the coverup through actual experiences at meetings with government and company officials. Watch this movie if you do not believe this can happen, especially if you believe that corporations are incapable of lies, or if you believe that ANY government is doing a great job of protecting people from harm caused by low level nuclear radiation, anywhere on the planet.

FOIA Proof That TEPCO Has Been Regularly Dumping Highly Radioactive Water Into The Pacific Ocean

TEPCO has been dumping radioactive water since right after the nuclear disaster, all they way up to today. They have covered all of this up, and say the opposite in the mass media of course. But if you follow the FOIA documents in the video, you will find out the horrible truth. TEPCO is regularly dumping up to 10,000 TONS OF HIGHLY RADIOACTIVE WATER into the Pacific ocean. 

They are running out of time. They are running out of room for more ‘temporary’ storage tanks. They are running out of money. They are running out of people. When will the world wake up smell the invisible winds and ocean waves of DEATH and cancer coming from Fukushima?

Japan Times: Discharges of Fukushima nuclear material into Pacific “have effectively contaminated the sea” — Melted reactor cores will burn again if water not perpetually poured in — “Tepco proposing some of it be dumped into ocean” May 20, 2013

Japan Times: “There could be hot spots under the sea” says Tokyo prof. — “No telling when contamination levels will peak” — 1/3 of fish caught in Gunma lake over max. cesium limit February 4, 2012

Japan Gov’t: It’s “inevitable” that Fukushima radioactive water will be dumped in Pacific Ocean — “Tepco has no choice” July 26, 2013

Kyodo News: Extremely contaminated water is seeping into Pacific Ocean from trench under Fukushima Reactor No. 2 turbine building — Tepco: We believe it’s staying within the pit July 27, 2013

TEPCO admits contaminated water leaking from multiple temporary storage pits at Fukushima Daiichi: http://t.co/BqZy4IyKjt

“This weekend, TEPCO announced that a water sample taken from a cable trench under the Unit 2 turbine building contained levels of radiation comparable to those seen in the first weeks of the nuclear disaster. The laboratory tests had shown that over 8.7 million becquerels of tritium, 2.35 billion becquerels of cesium, and 750 million becquerels of other radioactive materials were present in each liter of contaminated water. More than 5,000 tons of contaminated water are captured in, and leaking out of this one cable trench; permeating the soil, and leaking into the ocean. The once unthinkable is now realized and these contamination problems are only going to worsen over time.”

It is not a question of IF TEPCO has been dumping radioactive water into the ocean. It is not a question IF TEPCO has allowed leaks from numerous high level radioactive waste tanks on site. It is only a question of how much radiation has been allowed to be dumped or leaked into the ocean, into the air, into the groundwater. Since no one is standing there watching what the company is doing, there is little or no accountability or incentive to do the right thing. 

The tanks located at Fukushima were built to last ONE YEAR, according to a worker on site. It has now been two years since the mega disaster. Multiple tanks are leaking already. What happens if another huge earthquake hits and fissures rip these flimsy plastic or rubber things apart. What happens when the corrosive liquids eat through the temporary tanks designed to last only one year? There is enough radiation just in the tanks and bladders to extinguish all life on Earth, but TEPCO does not seem to have a plan on how to deal with this waste. 

What happens when they run out of room for more tanks? They estimate this will happen in two years or less. They are already dumping toxic, highly radioactive water into the ocean. This mega disaster is going from very bad to worse. Very few people seem to care.

Nuclear Disaster Related Movies/TV Shows Can Be Industry Propaganda Or Truth – How To Tell The Difference


Let’s all be careful when watching nuclear related documentary movies, because not all documentary or even fiction based movies, much less TV shows are providing even a shred of truth, or the facts and just the facts. Many movies and TV shows are made to get people to think a certain positive way about nuclear power and all things nuclear or radioactive. Even PBS is not immune to this propaganda technique. 

It seems that even a small amount of corporate funding can result in a propaganda film promoting a highly contaminated nuclear site as a Garden of Eden, worthy of becoming a tourist destination or possibly even a health resort. 


PBS; Radioactive Wolves In Chernobyl Exclusion Zone Movie Review
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/04/chernobyl-pbs-radioactive-wolves-in.html


So how do we define propaganda or recognize it in movies? Aftershock has one definition…. here is an AFTERSHOCK quote from a discussion thread on ENENews;….”Part of the game is to trivialize real-world events. I study propaganda and this is one of the most proven techniques. Basically, the idea is to take an issue and build a plot-line that’s so fantastic, it results in the distortion of the reality that’s to be hidden. The original 1950s’ Godzilla franchise played on the Japanese people’s fear of all-things-nuclear. Of course, the answer to the nuclear-empowered creature (Godzilla) was eventually arrived at (within the series) through a combination of appellations to Japan’s spiritual roots (Mothra) and full scale deployment of conventional military technologies. Buried within its child-like production, the Godzilla series transformed the public’s perceptions into a confusion of subconscious associations. We also witnessed this technique being used on the American public, throughout the fifties and most recently, in the revival of such distortions as Chernobyl Diaries…”


People are taught to think that nuclear is ‘safe’ by watching movies, produced with nuclear industry or even government funding.



Of course, nuclear bomb shelters no longer exist, and training in how to handle radiation is non-existent as well, even among emergency responders. The whole world is going to sleep about the dangers of nuclear radiation, nuclear war and all things nuclear. Need proof?

Try to find a nuclear bomb shelter near you… you will not be able to find one, despite there still being the threat of nuclear war and thousands of nuclear bombs ready to launch globally. The bomb shelters have all been shut down and all of the emergency supplies disappeared. 

Try to find an evacuation route out of a city that has a nuclear reactor.  Ask about evacuation routes from a local emergency planning agency out of a city where you live, in case of a nuclear bomb attack.. They will have no answer for you. 

Try to find an emergency planning agency for a Geiger Counter, that you can borrow. They will either have none or refuse to give one to you.  None of this exists anymore. 

We are all naked and exposed, with no protection or place to go in case of something bad happening around nuclear radiation. We are all being held hostage to the nuclear industry and the military industrial complex, which believes that all things nuclear are good and holy, but secret. 

The nuclear industry propaganda used to be that a global nuclear war was somehow ‘survivable’ if only you ‘prepared’. Today the propaganda is that you will survive, if you ‘duck and cover’.  This is all distortion and deception. Yes, in case of a nuclear bomb attack, your SHORT TERM odds of survival may increase slightly if you duck and cover, or if you had a nuclear bomb shelter, or if you had 60 days worth of canned food and water in a basement. 

But bottom line, there is no surviving an all out global nuclear war where every nation launches everything it has and thousands of nuclear bombs go off, and then 400 plus nuclear plants and their spent fuel pools melt down, blow  up and turn into corium or radioactive dust, much like Fukushima or Chernobyl, as shown in more than one movie made about this subject. Dr. Helen Caldicott explains the Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) theory very well in the following article and video clip. 

Dr. Helen Caldicott MD On Nuclear Weapons, MAD/Nuclear Armageddon; via A Green Road Blog
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/04/dr-helen-caldicott-md-on-nuclear.html

The underlying message in pro nuclear movies as well as corporate owned pro nuclear mass media TV news is; let the military or  pro nuclear experts handle all things radioactive, because no one else can understand it all. The overall theory the pro nuclear apologists present to people living mostly in denial is that radiation is harmless or even better, it is GOOD for you. 

This ‘good news’ propaganda is what people living in fear and/or in denial want to hear. The twisting of facts, statistics, computer models and presentation of faux science theories is apparent if one looks into this issue at all…such as via the following links. 

Bottom line, ALL 1,200 man made radiation products coming out of nuclear reactors and nuclear bombs is toxic and accumulative in humans, destructive to all life. These 1,200 substances could be considered ANTI-LIFE matter. 

Even low level radiation increases the risk of genetic damage, multiple diseases, birth defects, deaths during or before birth, and cancer, just to name a few of the wonderful things that the nuclear industry gives out as free gifts to all of humanity. Well actually, they CHARGE you and your family for this privilege in multiple ways, but that is another story.

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


The theory of hormesis has been disproved, but the nuclear industry LOVES this theory. They keep using it and comparing their man made toxic radiation to bananas and flying because it supports their world view that they are doing nothing but good by spreading more radiation via nuclear accidents, depleted uranium and nuclear bombs around the world. They can and do deceptively claim that ‘no one’ died due to radiation anywhere, at any time. Don’t believe this? Follow the links and explore a bit.. See if you still think the same way after you read about ten articles..

Uranium Mining and Enrichment – Nuclear Bomb -Nuclear Fuel Manufacturing
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/p/uranium-mining-and-enrichment.html

The subtle propaganda pro nuclear apologist under plots play out in movies made by or supported by the nuclear industry and it’s propaganda outlets, such as regulators, marketing agencies, governments and associated mass media outlets plus TV stations showing TV shows, all owned by and supporting huge global corporations with an almost 100% positive spin on all things nuclear.

Here is another example of a typical propaganda piece, portraying the Doomsday plane, as being something that will somehow ‘save’ humanity. The reporter laughs and jokes as if this advanced technology is actually a ‘good’ thing. The conclusion is that this plane and the ‘high tech God’ inside is something we can rely on in case it all goes bad. 

Inside The Doomsday Plane; Who Will Survive A (MAD) Global Nuclear War? via @AGreenRoad
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2013/06/inside-doomsday-plane-who-will-survive.html

The military industrial complex and the huge global corporate network supports itself, justifies everything it does and thinks, while attacking anything different, competing, or threatening it’s existence. 

Military think tank and global corporate industry mouthpieces get to say their piece, as they get their funding from these same folks, which is almost everyone in the monopolistic nuclear industry. The above piece about a magic plane that will somehow protect us and possibly ‘save’ us in case of a nuclear attack is an example of how only ONE side is talked about. This is the definition of news or movie propoganda. The total reality and/or truth is ignored, but a particular very narrow belief system is ‘programmed’ into the minds of viewers or readers, such as ‘radiation, nuclear bombs, depleted uranium weapons and nuclear plants are good’. 

But independent experts, such as Arnie Gunderson are finding the opposite to be TRUE.  It is easy to CLAIM and pronounce something, and then say that everyone must believe it blindly. It is quite another to PROVE TRUTH, via clear evidence, accumulated scientifically, impartially, and subject to analysis by many experts, even those outside the narrow industry clique. 


Gundersen: It brought me to tears — U.S. students kept in classroom with radiation levels off the scale — Yet kids of nuclear workers were evacuated (AUDIO) March 24, 2013


Japan Teachers: Students being taught pro-nuclear propaganda — Told radiation risk is less than dying of old age (VIDEO) December 7, 2011


What we see above is that the nuclear propaganda ‘programming’ is not just on TV and in the newspapers. The pro nuclear propoganda also extends into schools, because the government and nuclear industry form a ‘Matrix’ that is institutionalized into concrete. What works for the ‘special 1% class’ is not what normal people have to endure and blindly believe. This one example is NOT unique, but rather, true for schools, colleges, regulatory agencies and governments globally. 

Children, teens and young adults in college are being taught that radiation is good for you, even in toxic, highly dangerous nuclear fallout zones. This is mostly supported by BOTH major political parties in all countries, who are increasingly controlled by these huge corporate monopolies, including the nuclear industry.

Those opposed to the global corporate ‘Matrix’ or having a different opinion, such as the Green Party or Greenpeace rarely get mass media coverage, and if they get it, they are ‘on’ for only for a few seconds or at most a few brief minutes. Following any negative corporate news, we can count on thousands of mind numbing hours of ‘programming’ coverage that is dedicated to the positive, pro corporate, pro coal, pro oil, pro nuclear, pro huge corporate profits, at the expense of people and communities point of view. 

We are sure that if you watch TV at all, that you have noticed the clean coal, oil creates jobs, clean Gulf, and the green, clean, free nuclear power creates jobs ‘programming’? But what is the truth underneath these sound bites and industry propaganda? For that, we have to dive deeper..

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


The propaganda extends even into the scientific world, as hard as it is to believe this. But prove this for yourself. No scientist is funded by government or nuclear industry grants if they dare to step out of line and oppose the pro nuclear spin machine, even if what they are saying is true. 

Anyone who starts being critical in any way of any part of the nuclear industry, or anyone telling the ENTIRE truth of the radioactive subject matter, is ‘shunned’ financially speaking. This technique of handing out money to the industry promoting sycophants and withholding it from the whistle blowers and truth tellers gets almost 100% of everyone to lie or keep quiet about what is REALLY happening. This same strategy is found in movies made about the the global corporate ‘Matrix’. Watch some movies at random, and see if any of them are EVER critical of ANYTHING that corporations do, ANYWHERE?  


Bottom line, as you watch any movie, TV ad, TV show, or newspaper story about a particular huge corporate monopoly, such as coal, oil, nuclear, diamonds, or one of dozens of other monopolies, pay attention to how and where the MONEY is flowing within and around it.. Find out who financed it. Who is employing the people interviewed in the ‘documentary’ for example?

Take another example; Star Trek: The Next Generation: Season 4 S4:E9 Final Mission 

In this episode, the crew saves a planet from radioactive Hell by towing an abandoned nuclear waste space freighter into the Sun. This freighter was full of highly radioactive waste, so radioactive that even in orbit around this planet, it was contaminating people on the surface below. Yet, somehow, the Enterprise moved in, extended it’s shields to the freighter and towed it at a slow speed into the sun. 

The computer kept warning about ‘lethal levels’ of radiation in 10 minutes, counting down all the way to 10 seconds, but then the Enterprise released the craft, and they went on to save Captain Picard, with absolutely no health effects whatsoever to any of the crew, much less the people on the bridge. 

No further discussion was given to the radiation exposure and it’s effects. Everything went back to normal, as if radiation magically disappeared after one was exposed. Even the magical medical gas that was supposed to neutralize the radiation stopped working after a certain point, and they knew it. 

Bottom line, the whole Star Trek series is all about how radiation magically disappears and no one suffers from it, despite lethal levels being reached numerous times. Further, the whole star travel concept is strained when one thinks about the effects of anti-matter being channeled through a small craft. They admit there is radiation involved, but never go into the negative health effects or consequences. 

At worst, in an Enterprise nuclear disaster, the radioactive ‘core’ is thrown out into space, where it typically explodes harmlessly. Bottom line, no one is ever harmed from radiation in any of these science fiction TV shows. Well, actually Spock died from radiation in one episode, but that put radiation was framed in a positive light too, because no one else suffered from the radiation leak and Spock died a hero. In real life, radiation leaks do not work that way. 

Just knowing who is paying for the ‘programming’ and where the actors or people being interviewed are receiving their money from will tell you whether or not to believe most of what is said. It is much like the tobacco industry paying to have actors and actresses smoke in movies and TV shows. Hollywood suffers just like politicians do from the pay to play framework, where money trumps truth.  

The more government, nuclear industry experts or nuclear industry related money is involved in a movie, the less truth is told and the more deceptive and manipulative ‘programming’ is found. But see if this is what you find to be true, after you dive into some of these articles and research this for yourself. Do not blindly believe anyone. Question EVERYONE, including the government, preachers, ‘experts, etc. 


Is it hard to believe that news ‘programming’ or movies can be propaganda? Here are a few specific examples;

American Students Featured in Fukushima Propaganda Film: The cherries are delicious — The nuclear power plant has brought us together — “Fukushima is here, unchanged to this day” (VIDEO) September 5, 2012


Despite clear and convincing evidence that Chernobyl children were and still are are being harmed by low level radiation, children around living close to Fukushima are not only forced to eat radiation contaminated food and milk in school, but foreign children from countries such as the USA are being brought in and also forced to eat this same contaminated food and drink, while being filmed for future pro nuclear propaganda efforts. 

The US State Dept. after the Fukushima meltdown formally agreed to buy all exported food from Japan, no matter what the origin, and without testing it for radiation.

The House In The Middle (1954) (A pro nuclear propaganda film)


“Atomic tests at the Nevada Proving Grounds (later the Nevada Test Site) show effects on well-kept homes, homes filled with trash and combustibles, and homes painted with reflective white paint. Asserts that cleanliness is an essential part of civil defense preparedness and that it increased survivability. Selected for the 2002 National Film Registry of “artistically, culturally, and socially significant” films.”


The only problem with the above movies and most others made at that same time is that they almost NEVER discuss what REALLY happens to you, your neighbors and your whole community, even if you painted your house white and kept it spotlessly clean, if you were in the downwind fallout zone from a nuclear bomb or a leaking, melting down nuclear power plant. They also do not discuss the dangers of ‘touring’ these radiation testing grounds or accident sites. Things like ‘hot particles’ are never discussed.  Rather, the opposite is portrayed. 

Today, around Fukushima, the government, the nuclear industry and regulators all claim that living in highly contaminated radiation zones that people were evacuated out of after Chernobyl, is safe for Japanese families, and more than that, that these high levels of radiation are HEALTHY for everyone, including pregnant women and children. Children are playing and rolling in highly contaminated radiation areas around Fukushima, solely because the propaganda put out by ‘experts’ assures them that they are safe. 

These experts also NEVER discuss the danger of even low level radiation, and still do not to this very day. The link to the movie that follows is what the nuclear industry does not want you to see…

Children of Chernobyl – A Grierson Award Winning Documentary About The Negative Effects Of Low Level Radiation; via @AGreenRoad
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2013/07/children-of-chernobyl-grierson-award.html


There are many other movies like this one, which you can explore at A Green Road through the pages links. If you are open and ready to face the dark side of humanity, you will learn some horrible truths. But facing truth, (even dark ones) is the sign of a healthy person, not living in denial. Sadly, only a few people are ready to ‘wake up’ in this way. Most people are happy to be ‘programmed’ and live in blissful ignorance or denial, while pushing away or denying the dark side both personally and professionally. 

As you integrate your dark side and then stand up to the rich and powerful 1% who seem to somehow always end up in a position where they lie, cheat and steal from the 99%, don’t fear the reaper.. from Blue Oyster Cult… Enjoy. 



Corium has left the building – shared the following excellent movies via ENENews.com discussion thread…These movies portray reality, as opposed to the fantasy world that pro nuclear folks like to propogandize. 


“A2 – Documentary about Fukushima children with thyroid cysts and nodules”


“The Land of Hope”

“ABITA. CHILDREN FROM FUKUSHIMA” about Fukushima children who can’t go outside and play 
“3:11 Surviving Japan” 
“Pray for Japan: 
“Women of Fukushima” 
“Fukushima Day” 
“Fukushima: Memories of the Lost Landscape” 
“The Future For the Children in Fukushima” 
“My Atomic Aunt” 
“Fukushima 50” 

Enjoy watching the above movies, which tend to portray things more as they really are rather than as the nuclear industry wants you to BELIEVE…

A final point about propaganda… Wikipedia would paint the above movies as propaganda as well, because in theory, they ‘only’ present one side of the issue. In the ideal world, ‘both’ sides of an argument are shown and equal time is given to both. Well, the fact of the matter is that Republicans got rid of the equal time rule many years ago, so no media outlet has to worry about even showing two sides of anything, to anyone, ever.

But even if a movie showed 2 sides of an issue, what about the 3rd side? Say a news reporter interviews a Republican and a Democrat on a TV show or movie and they both get equal time to talk about an issue, such as nuclear power.. Is that fair and balanced non-propaganda? Wikipedia would more than likely say that this is a perfect world, according to their definition of propaganda movies or TV shows.

But even THIS two sided debate could very well be considered ‘propoganda’, because it cuts out all of the other diverse parties and viewpoints that exist, such as the Green Party for example. What is worse, is that both the Democrats and the Republicans are BOTH owned and controlled by corporate interests, so there is really only ONE side shown, despite the seeming appearance of it all being so ‘fair and balanced’. It is almost impossible to find ANY politicians not accepting money from huge corporations in either major party.

Meanwhile the Green Party, which accepts no corporate funding as part of its mission and purpose, is cut out of the debate and gets absolutely NO mass media air time. The ‘green’ non nuclear point of view and the Green Party specifically is not covered by the mass media news channels for the most part. The Green Party nor any other third political party is seen on any TV show, and they are not featured in any large corporate owned newspaper. Why not? Why is the Green Party seen as ‘wasting your vote’ specifically? Whatever happened to ‘freedom’ and vote your conscience?

In other countries such as Germany for example, the Greens are a major political voice and power. They made the difference in steering the country away from nuclear power and making plans to shut down all nuclear plants by a certain future year. They also have a sustainable plan for seven future generations that benefits everyone, not just the 1% at the top.

Underneath it all, the green point of view and the Green Party specifically is seen as a THREAT to the 1% corporate power, influence and control of the mass media, politics and more. Both the Democrats and the Republicans attack the Green Party and all other third parties specifically both through laws they pass and through mass media ‘programming’ plus a healthy dose of fear thrown in for good measure.  This combination of propaganda, fear and draconian exclusion laws keeps most people inside the corporate controlled ‘Matrix’. And now a little poetry from Orwell.

When I grow up I’ll be a Spokesperson!
Forget math or science, business or nursin’-
all that stuff’s hard and doin’ it worse’n
trying to decide who’s tweets to follow
and how on camera it looks when I swallow –
besides, I’m busy for TV rehearsin’…
Reality! Being a Star, being Famous! Driving nice cars!
I’ll look really good from my best angle
then for ME endorsements someone will dangle!
I’ll talk bafflegab glibly and use euphemisms
and never have to make any decisions!
Just talk and look good – and here’s the fun bit –
if I’m really good I’ll get known as a pundit
then being on TV gets my lifestyle funded!
or-well


Since the greens challenge the non sustainable, destructive and suicidal tendencies of nuclear, oil and coal monopolies, a green point of view is squashed, attacked, ignored and denied any air time or inclusion in Presidential debates which are hosted by a privately owned corporation. Fear and division dominates the discussion, rather than love and inclusiveness.

Bottom line, the TRUTH is covered up, denied, attacked and vilified at every opportunity. So it is not just propaganda that is the problem, it is the denial of TRUTH. Isn’t true science the curious exploration of truth in all areas? Isn’t true science the publishing of all research results, even if it turns out to ‘hurt’ a corporation? But that is not what happens in most cases. Science is to a large extent, funded by and for corporations, who expect a positive result and profits.



We all know from Bible school that Satan is the author of ALL lies, and finally, that God is the source and author of all truth. What does that make the authors of propaganda, especially when their intent is to cover up, deny or hide the TRUTH, while causing harm to millions of people or even cause a global life extinction event?

And would you agree, that even if a movie showed only ONE side of something, as long as it was A truth that benefited seven future generations, and that this truth did not harm anyone, that it would not qualify as propaganda?

Anyway, this is an interesting question that deserves to be explored and compared to the Wikipedia definition of movie propaganda. Think about it. 


Nuclear Disaster Related Movies/TV Shows Can Be Industry Propaganda Or Truth – How To Tell The Difference; via @AGreenRoad

As Little As 10-30 Bq/kg of Cesium Radiation In Kids Causes Health Problems


Video part I

Cesium has a half life of 30 years, but it will take over 300 years to disappear. Cesium in the form of gas will be and is most definitely released from any nuclear accident where any reactor’s nuclear or spent fuel melts down.   Radioactive Xenon gas will also be released in large quantities, and as it decays, it also trasmutes down into solid Cesium. 

The cesium isotope did not appear in our environment, food or water until nuclear scientists harnessed the power of the sun. To say that cesium is at all comparable to a ‘natural’ background radiation is totally nonsensical. 

Cesium, tritium, plutonium and other exotic man made isotopes did not appear in the environment until radioactive substances were invented and nuclear accidents happened, and/or nuclear bombs were set off. After these events, cancer rates increased through the roof exponentially, much more so in areas closer to the radiation release, such as Belarus, which is located near the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Where cancer used to be very rare as a cause of death, now cancers are pretty much the only way people die. 

1 curie equals 33 BILLION Bequerels of radiation. We already know that a child having eaten, breathed or drunk very low radiation of 10-30 Bq/kg of cesium content contained in dust, food or water can suffer negative health effects. 

So why is the government saying that 100-1000 Bq/kg is ‘safe’ for everyone, no matter what? They even go so far as to claim that smiling will protect you from the harmful effects of radiation. Try smiling when exposed to the radiation of the sun while sunbathing on the beach. See how much smiling will protect you from a simple sunburn, much less toxic heavy metals with a radioactive punch behind them like plutonium, uranium and cesium.

As little as 2 grams of cesium (which is about the size of a dime), if distributed in the form of a gas, (this is what escapes from a reactor or spent fuel pool during a nuclear accident), can make 2 square miles of land totally uninhabitable and deadly to all life. 

All nuclear power plants contain TONS of highly toxic and deadly dangerously radioactive cesium in their spent fuel pools. This is why just one nuclear plant accident can contaminate and make devoid of all meaningful life 4 -15,000 thousand square miles or more of fertile land, rivers and/or ocean. This is why just one nuclear accident can bankrupt a whole nation, as happened with Chernobyl to what is now called Russia. You cannot take 4,000 to 15,000 square miles of fertile land, rivers and forest out of production and close all towns plus relocate everyone there, without HUGE financial repercussions that end up bankrupting that nation.

Just using depleted uranium, which is the ‘garbage’ of the nuclear industry being recycled into the war machine, is deadly to all life that breathes in the dust created by exploding one of these shells, for one million years. Can humanity afford nuclear weapons of any kind, with that kind of price to pay for one small conflict?

The same thing that happened to residents living around Chernobyl will happen to Japanese citizens, despite the fact that 80% of the Fukushima radiation went out over the ocean. 

The authorities in Japan just like at Chernobyl and TMI refused to admit that a melt down had happened, until way after millions of people were exposed to radioactive contamination as far away as Tokyo, with it’s 35 MILLION people. Radioactive Iodine levels went above safe drinking water levels in the town water supply, but  this Iodine was a GAS, that was inhaled by everyone all across the nation of Japan.. 

This is the playbook that nucleocrats use. The playbook says to never admit anything until there is no way to avoid it, and then minimize it as much as possible. Never admit what really happened, ever, if you can avoid it. Use meaningless phrases such as ‘no immediate harm’, as much as possible, but NEVER disclose actual radiation meter readings on the stacks of any nuclear power plant, EVER.

Cesium easily bioaccumulates faster than it is ingested. It also biomagnifies as it moves up the food chain, sometimes MILLIONS of times from the levels found in the environment.

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


Animals and Low Level Radiation Effects

At Steven Starr’s presentation @ the Symposium on the “Medical and Ecological Consequences of the Fukushima Nuclear Accident” he said the following;

* Cesium can’t be dumped out of the body faster than it’s taken in.

* Eating 10 Becquerels of Cesium-137 a day, will result in 1,400 Becquerels in the body after about 1 and1/2 years.

* Eating Cesium-137 daily will make Cesium bioaccumulate, and it is especially harmful in children and pregnant women.

* Cesium-137 easily dissolves in water. Cesium mimics potassium, and ends up in the water and food as well as humans.  Cesium is known to cause cancer, leukemia, genetic mutations, birth defects as well as malformations of fetuses in pregnant women.

* Cesium-137 taken in by infants is particularly hazardous.  – it can easily cause irreversible damage to tissues in heart and other organs at levels as low as 10-50 Bq/kg. 


* Cesium bio-accumulates particularly well in the endocrine system, heart, pancreas, kidneys, and intestines as well as the thyroid gland.

Mushrooms, berries, milk and meat tend to have much higher levels of radiation than the levels found in the environment. All of the food and liquids tend to be contaminated in a fallout zone after a nuclear accident, around a normally operating plant or after a nuclear bomb attack. 

Daily ingestion of ONLY TEN Bequerels of cesium from ANY sourse tends to cause cesium bio-accumulation in the body. This accumulation can be measured and monitored using a whole body INTERNAL radiation counter, which is NOT being used in Japan, on purpose. External radiation counters do little or nothing to monitor INTERNAL radiation accumulation and damage.  

The nuclear industry does not think radiation is anything to worry about. Their experts claim that all cesium is safely excreted, faster than it is coming in, no matter what. The evidence points to the opposite. 

According to medical researchers, as little as 15 Bq/kg can and does cause an irregular heart beat, indicating heart damage. Cesium concentrates in various body organs, rather then being uniformly distributed in the body. High levels of cesium were found by researchers in the pancreas, thyroid, intestinal walls, heart and testes, at more than ten times the levels compared to other parts of the body. 

A Russian researcher found that in Belarus, it was difficult to find any children with zero radiation contamination. Over 100,000 whole body internal radiation counts were done on children of Belarus, and only those that had less than 10 Bq/kg whole body counts had normal EKG’s. These children were hard to find. It was rare to find any child that had less than 10 Bq/kg of cesium contamination as measured by a whole body radiation counter. 

In children with 11-37 bq/kg, only 37% had normal EKG’s. Only 20% of children had normal EKG’s with 38 to 74 Bq/kg whole body counts. Only 11% of children with 74-100 Bq/kg of cesium had normal EKG’s. Those with over 50 Bq/kg of cesium always had lesions on various organs or glands, including the heart. These lesions caused irreversible damage and threatened the lives of these children affected in this manner. 

In autopsies, cesium was found to concentrate in the thyroid of children living in Belarus, and it is implicated in thyroid cancer. Pro nuclear apologists say that cesium does not concentrate in ANY organs or glands. 

Millions of people in Belarus live in contaminated areas and have had their health compromised from low level cesium contamination of food, air, water and other goods.. Millions of Japanese people also now live in contaminated areas, and are eating contaminated foods. The same results can be expected in Japan, as in Belarus. 

The Japanese government claims that all food and drink is safe if it contains less than 100 Bq/kg. They also claim and pronounce loudly that anyone with a whole body internal radiation count under 300 Bq/kg is ‘healthy’.  

Fishermen that used to catch fish to sell are now reduced to getting government handouts and working for TEPCO as radiation monitors in seafood. They can no longer legally sell any seafood, because much of it remains contaminated with ‘illegal’ levels of radiation. 

Japanese fishermen, in a Japan Today article “say fish that live near the sea-floor, such as cod, halibut or sole, often test positive for ‘excessive’ levels of radiation. A large crab caught by Yaoita before the disaster could fetch as much as 3,000 yen on the Hisanohama market. A kilogram of flatfish could sell for about the same. Once he could catch dozens of both and many other fish on a single morning outing.


“The nuclear disaster destroyed our livelihoods and now we are like beggars,” said Yaoita…“Previously I never went to see the doctor. Now it feels like I down more drugs and medicine than actual food.”

Nuclear ‘experts’ predicted the ocean would dilute the radiation from Fukushima. They claimed that fishermen could go back to work quickly and all radiation levels would go back down to ‘normal’ levels. However, the cesium radiation levels are not dropping as predicted, and the bottom of the ocean remains highly contaminated along with the many creatures that live there. 

Scientists are trying to figure out why their predictions are not coming true, and are scratching their heads, while millions of people suffer from radiation contaminated foods and water. Millions of people now suffer from the lack of ability to make a living from the land or the ocean, which had been a rich and prosperous heritage going back tens of thousands of years. What is the financial impact going to be? 

No one is counting the TOTAL negative costs of nuclear power yet, but the impact of a major nuclear disaster happening every 20 years will be felt for countless generations to come.

Passivity, Complacency, And Plausible Deniability – On Fukushima Beach 2: The Lights of Fukushima


http://youtu.be/2re7NJnE2YA

Many people wonder why most of the population is passive, meek and submissive when it comes to traumatic nuclear accidents, radiation contamination of thousands of square miles of land, and the financial destruction of entire countries? 

Why is it that when our children are threatened by three terrorists, we can go all out and get the entire country involved in a quick solution? But when it comes to terror caused by genetic diseases, deformities and deaths of millions from an invisible poison called radiation, no action is taken, and almost no one even cares to hear about it, much less solve the problems involved?
The video above goes into a detailed explanation of the causes of passivity, complacency, and lack of action by those most affected by harmful radiation, both in Japan and the USA. Russia is included by reference, because people act in predictable ways, in all countries.

Scientific Nuclear Fraud At Major Universities; Uncovered And Analyzed

In the above video, Dr. Helen Caldicott MD explains the health dangers of low dose radiation. Her views are contrary to the nuclear industry viewpoints and beliefs, as expressed by nuclear pundits and experts at universities funded by the nuclear industry all around the world. Why would a medical professional have the exact opposite viewpoint, when compared to nuclear regulators and scientists?



Dr. Janette Sherman MD explores and explains the dangers of low dose radiation on fetuses and infants in the video above. She is also an expert about nuclear radiation, but she and Dr. Caldicott MD deal with kids, infants, sperm, eggs and fetuses, not cold, dead radioactive material. Who are you going to listen to? Could this hint at a reason why there is such a disparity of beliefs? 


Dr. Caldicott teaches for example, that just one ‘hot’ particle of plutonium or uranium, or cesium, or strontium, or one of 1,200 other radioactive decay daughters can cause birth defects, or health issues/death from one of 2,000 genetic diseases. The nuclear industry claims this is not possible, at all, ever. They further claim no one has died from this, nor gotten sick from any ‘hot’ particles that the nuclear industry produces. 

Now let’s explore why the public runs into two different and opposing belief systems. Did you know that scientific nuclear related research is full of fraud, and much of it cannot be relied upon, especially when it comes to radiation? Scientific fraud is rampant in research papers. 


Scientific fraud is now rampant in research papers:
http://www.naturalnews.com/041592_scientific_fraud_research_papers_junk_science.html

More to the point, the whole nuclear scientific community is ‘controlled’ by the money flowing to them. They are universally told what to publish, how to research things, and what the final report will say. They also get ‘muzzled’ and told NOT to speak to the press, or to anyone else for that matter, especially if what they know would ‘harm’ the nuclear industry. 

Don’t talk to media about your research, scientist says she was told by Ottawa The Canadian Press –
http://ca.news.yahoo.com/dont-talk-media-research-scientist-says-she-told-184307685.html


Does this sound scientific to you? Whatever happened to the pursuit of truth, and letting the chips fall where they may? Isn’t this what universities and colleges are supposed to be all about? It seems that these days, universities and colleges are more about following the money, and squelching the truth. 


Now let’s dive into just ONE ‘official’ Tokyo University study around the Fukushima disaster and pull it apart to see how well it stands up to more than a brief one paragraph mention in most mass media news outlets. 


Official Nuclear Radiation Study; Tokyo University

Hayno, R.S., et al (2013) Internal Radiocesium Contamination of Adults and Children 7 to 20 Months After the Fukushima NPP Accident as Measured by Extensive Whole-Body-Counter Surveys, Proc. Jpn. Acad. Ser B, 4, 157-163


30,000 people were given a whole body radiation scan, and the conclusion from this team of supposed nuclear ‘experts’, scientists and professors was that no radioactive cesium was found in 99% of the residents living close to the Fukushima ground zero nuclear plant. (Thus, no one was harmed, and no one will die from radiation as a result of Fukushima. This is also why the government is saying everything is back to normal, and people can move back into areas right around Fukushima.)


Fumikazu Asai (2013, April 11) Study: No radioactive cesium in 99% of Fukushima, Ibaraki residents
http://ajw.asahi.com/article/0311disaster/fukushima/AJ201304110064


However, this supposed scientific ‘study’ or research has severe problems both in the collection of the data and the conclusion that was reached. There is a computer model axiom that applies here; ‘garbage in = garbage out’.  The following links and articles deconstruct the study and show why is it nothing more than very bad, nonscientific nuclear industry propaganda.

Human Radiation Experiments Performed Without Consent Or Knowledge; via @AGreenRoad


The Art of Deception: The Cult of Nuclearists, Uranium Weapons and Fraudulent Science; via @AGreenRoad

These nuclear industry funded ‘experts’ that were part of this study and set it up concluded there was ‘no harmful radiation’ detected. They came to this conclusion because ‘only’ 1% of those tested had cesium levels of 300 Bq/kg or over, out of the 30,000 participants tested. 
The only problem with this conclusion is that post Chernobyl studies by independent scientists showed that as little as 10- 50 Bq/Kg of cesium caused physical lesions in the heart and other organs, plus major diseases and/or death from heart attacks in 100% of children studied.

As little as 10 Bq/Kg of cesium has been shown to cause physical health problems. How many people in this study had 10Bq/Kg or more? How many of them had health problems that developed after 3/11? No one knows, as that was not allowed to be asked, is our guess.

Our guess is that most if not all of those participating had at least 10Bq/kg of cesium in their whole body scan, indicating they would more than likely experience a negative health effect of some kind.

Another thing to realize is that Cesium CONCENTRATES in certain body organs and glands. So if you take a 100 Bq/Kg level in the heart or in the bones and ‘average’ it out over the whole body, which most pro nuclear apologists do to make things look better for their industry, that ‘average’ looks like a lot LESS of a radioactive load than it actually is, when it is concentrated in one or a few small glands or organs.

This study and the nuclear industry in general completely ignores the radiation concentration effect in glands or organs, and focuses instead on the theory that radiation is absorbed ‘equally’ by all cells of the body. Of course this theory has been proven false, so false that anyone spouting that radiation is always equal in all parts of the body, is putting out pro nuclear industry propoganda.

This means that the basic premise of this supposedly ‘scientific’ university study is so flawed, that it is completely worthless. In other words, it is garbage, or worse yet, outright propoganda, meant and designed to deceive the whole world.

This study in effect makes up part of the nuclear industry propoganda effort that Fukushima never happened, no one was harmed and here is the scientific ‘proof’, direct from Tokyo University. The study cannot be disputed in court because it is based on all of these expert ‘scientists’ at all of these prestigious educational institutions… The problem is that many, if not most or all of these radiation studies are shams, frauds and propoganda at best, designed to make the nuclear industry look good, rather than to discover the TRUTH.

Never mind that the nuclear industry controls what is taught at these universities and colleges. Never mind that the funding received by these same places is tied to the nuclear industry. Why would these scientists sell out like this? For that we have to follow the money, which is the root of all evil.

If for some reason, a study comes out that is even minutely critical of any part of the nuclear industry or any accident, the funding to that nuclear scientist is CUT OFF immediately.

That nuclear scientist is also put on a black list, so that no one else in the industry will hire him. That ‘expert’ then starves to death, because no one else will pay him or give him a job. Or, if the funding is not cut off, his contract is not renewed and/or he or she is fired for some other reason, such as unsatisfactory job performance, or ‘not a good fit’. This is a description of the stranglehold that the nuclear industry has on scientific researchers that only a few brave souls dare to take on… like those medical doctors above. But as we already pointed out, they get no research money to do their jobs, either from the government, or the nuclear industry.

This is also the control method used to make sure that expensive radiation testing equipment is NEVER used for the purpose of protecting public health, monitor fallout, monitor food radiation contamination, or to study the effects on fetuses, babies or infants.

Take a look at all of the holy nuclear club institutions that will never say a critical word against anything nuclear…

Why All Nuclear Power Plants Must Be Shut Down
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/p/why-all-nuclear-plants-must-be-shut-down.html

The nuclear industry promotes the industry propoganda that only very high doses of EXTERNAL radiation can cause harm in any way. They claim that internal radiation at doses under 300 Bq/kg cannot do any harm and thus all people contaminated with internal radiation at levels under that, will not be harmed. This means that according to these paid off nuclear experts, millions of radiation victims around the world cannot blame the nuclear industry for their health problems, or take them to court.

These supposed education and scientific nuclear ‘experts’ support the nuclear industry position in a quid pro quo relationship, which means they receive financial or other perks such as political positions, for giving a certain prearranged outcome or beneficial to the nuclear industry result.

All data received is massaged via computer models or ‘estimates’ to fit this preconceived notion that bears little or no relationship to reality. Those that come up with different conclusions other than what nuclear companies want get their funding cut off, and thus cannot make a living. 

These supposed nuclear industry funded ‘experts’ draw no distinction between the effects of low dose radiation on mature healthy adults, an egg, sperm, a fetus and small children.

The fact that one almost undetectable nano particle of plutonium inside the body, lodged next to or inside of a cell can have mutagenetic or cancer causing effects on surrounding cells, including an egg or sperm, simply does not register on them. They will not go there. Internal low dose radiation is not acknowledged as a potential source of harm, unless it is registered in massive amounts that will kill a person in a very short period of time.

This ONE university study only measured for extremely high levels of cesium that would mean quick death, but ignored low levels of plutonium, strontium or 100 other toxic and deadly radioactive isotopes that they also could have looked for and found, which cause negative health effects, and long term cancers or death.

The nuclear industry paid off ‘experts’ go off in all kinds of directions with their propoganda and claim all kinds of hogwash, such as the following;

In another example of nuclear industry propaganda, a nuclear ‘expert’ claims that “Fukushima Daiichi plant “did amazingly well” — “Performed beyond its best expectations”

The only problem with this positive ‘spin’ is that the nuclear industry experts knew very well that these nuclear reactors had a number of FATAL design flaws, such as the following, outlined by PhilliUpNorth via Enenews; 


“15 Design Flaws In GE Mark 1 Reactors

1. Containment Vessel is too small to contain a nuclear meltdown.

2. Torus, added to fix containment issue, failed when molten corium melted through steel pipes.

3. Stack Venting, added to fix containment issue, failed when valves stuck closed during power failure.

4. Zirconium fuel cladding gives off explosive levels of hydrogen when heated by melting fuel.

5. Vapors of zirconium and cesium formed an explosive mixture during a reactor meltdown, destroying the buildings, controls and safety systems in huge hydrogen explosions. 

6. Spent Fuel Pools are located 100′ high in the reactor building, making removal of melted fuel nearly impossible in destroyed buildings.

7. MOX fuel was used in an old plant, pushing temperatures and pressures higher then reactor design, causing failure and criticality explosion in #3 at Fukushima. 

8. Diesel generators, pumps, and fuel tanks vulnerable to tsunami.

9. Reactors require electricity to shut down, melt down if without power. 

10. Temperature and pressure gauges require electricity to operate.
11. Without power, control rooms cannot tell what is happening inside reactors.
12. Without power, operators are powerless (literally) to control reactors.
13. Mobile backup generators were wrong voltage to connect to switchgear.
14. Mobile pumps and fire engines do not have enough pressure to get water into the reactors.
15. Control rods insert from below, and leak molten corium through many holes in the bottom of reactor during a meltdown.”
There are potentially 100-200 additional flaws, weaknesses and/or bad designs in this particular brand of nuclear reactor made by GE. Nuclear engineers quit rather than continue to work on it. But when these flaws and poor designs result in a massive accident, the best that the nuclear experts can do is to say that it ‘performed better than it’s best expectations’. Maybe they mean to say that they had zero expectations for it, so anything is better than nothing.

Nuclear engineers that worked on this design warned GE about the flaws, but nothing changed. Those that really cared quit rather than to keep working on it and building more plants that they knew would blow up, as Fukushima did, multiple times.

People who care about our future and community keep warning us, but very few people seem to want to listen or care..

Little or nothing is done about the 20 plus nuclear reactors of the same design operating in the USA, in order to address the obvious problems found. The companies responsible seem to not be learning the lessons needed from this disaster.

Bottom line,  human civilization is on a collision course with a catastrophic global nuclear disaster, if humanity does not change the current power structure, which is based on greed and control from the top down.

Let’s finish with another nuclear expert who sees the results of radiation on his patients, and they are not pretty… 


“NUCLEAR RADIATION: THERE IS NO SAFE DOSE, by Romeo F. Quijano, M.D.” 
He reports that; 
“Government “experts” are actually misinterpreting the standards used world-wide as the common basis for radiological protection standards……The concept of “permissible” or “acceptable” level is derived from toxicologic assumptions and extrapolations which do not constitute a valid rationale for a conclusion of “safety”……The “small” amount of radiation, claimed to be “safe” by authorities, added to our increasingly fragile environment will cause serious harm to the health of human beings and other living organisms all over the world. Radioactive particles, especially Plutonium, Strontium, and Cesium are bioaccumulative, extremely persistent and highly toxic…..Particularly devastating would be the inevitable damage to the genetic pool which will lead to an increase in the number of seriously defective offspring who will be born in future generations.”
http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/insights/04/01/11/nuclear-radiation-there-no-safe-dose

Even a Japanese former prime minister describes this conspiracy between education, regulators, media and the nuclear industry. He says that they support each other. He used to be part of this cabal, but now has dedicated his life to exposing it and warning people of the danger of nuclear power.

Scientific Nuclear Fraud At Major Universities; Uncovered And Analyzed; via @AGreenRoad



Veterans Compensated For Exposure To Depleted Uranium Radiation/Poison; What About Everyone Else?


According to the Dept. Of Veteran Affairs; “The U.S. military uses tank armor and some bullets made with depleted uranium (DU) to penetrate enemy armored vehicles, and began using DU on a large scale during the 1990-1991 Gulf War.


The process of manufacturing enriched uranium from natural uranium used in nuclear reactors or weapons leaves “depleted” uranium. DU has 40 percent less radioactivity, but the same chemical toxicity as natural uranium.
If you think you were exposed to depleted uranium during your military service, talk to your local VA Environmental Health Coordinator. Ask to be screened for depleted uranium exposure, and ask about the Depleted Uranium Follow-Up Program.

How Veterans may have been exposed to depleted uranium
When a projectile made with DU penetrates a vehicle, small pieces of DU can scatter and become embedded in muscle and soft tissue. In addition to DU in wounds, soldiers exposed to DU in struck vehicles may inhale or swallow small airborne DU particles.
Some Gulf War, Bosnia, Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), and Operation New Dawn (OND) Veterans who may have been exposed to DU are those who were: on, in or near vehicles hit with friendly fire; entering or near burning vehicles; near fires involving DU munitions; or salvaging damaged vehicles.

Health problems associated with depleted uranium
DU is a potential health hazard if it enters the body, such as through embedded fragments, contaminated wounds, and inhalation or ingestion. Simply riding in a vehicle with DU weapons or DU shielding will not expose a service member to significant amounts of DU or external radiation.
The potential for health effects from internal exposure is related to the amount of DU that enters a person’s body. If DU enters the body, it may remain in the body. Studies show high doses may especially affect the kidneys.
So far no health problems associated with DU exposure have been found in Veterans exposed to DU. Researchers and clinicians continue to monitor the health of these Veterans. Go to the Department of Defense’s Depleted Uranium (DU) Library to learn about results of medical and scientific research and other DU topics.

Health concerns?
If you are concerned about depleted uranium exposure during military service, talk to your health care provider or local VA Environmental Health Coordinator.
Veterans not enrolled in the VA health care system, find out if you qualify for VA health care.
VA benefits
Veterans who served in the 1990-1991 Gulf War, Bosnia, OEF, OIF, or OND may be eligible for the Depleted Uranium Follow-Up Program at the Baltimore VA Medical Center, a program to screen and monitor health problems associated with depleted uranium exposure.
Veterans may be eligible for VA disability compensation benefits and health care benefits for health problems associated with depleted uranium in military service.
Veterans’ dependents and survivors also may be eligible for benefits. Read Federal Benefits for Veterans, Dependents and Survivors to learn more.”
It is well known that depleted munitions were used inside civilians cities, by many nations other than the USA. Potentially, millions of people around the world have been exposed to depleted uranium dust and radiation. 
The VA benefits program PROVES harm done to those exposed to DU, (despite them trying to deny it all, at the same time) so it follows that everyone else who was exposed also deserves compensation. How about all of those people exposed in locations where these munitions were tested, inside the USA or other countries?

Dr. Chris Busby shows how veterans are applying for and winning veterans appeals for compensation in British courts. He is arguing that it is a well known fact that uranium and plutonium is being found on the ground, in the same places and at the same time as armed forces were. The army is arguing that these forces were not there, and secondarily that it does not cause harm. On both fronts, the military is completely wrong.

Who will stand for the millions of depleted uranium victims outside of the military? Who will stand up to ban these weapons of mass destruction? Certainly, the military industrial complex inside of the USA is not going to stop selling these weapons, because the US is the biggest single weapons exporter in the world. They will NOT give up these profits without a fight. They would rather pollute the whole world for a million years than give up these profits. That is why they are called ‘war profiteers’, which used to be illegal, back in the day.

Dangerously Radioactive Wild Boars Roaming Around Italy

WHY ARE THERE RADIOACTIVE WILD BOARS ROAMING NORTHERN ITALY?

CORRIERE DELLA SERA, LA STAMPA (Italy)


“VERCELLI – This northern Italian city is more than 2,000 kilometers away from Chernobyl, so it’s almost impossible to imagine how the very same radioactive particles ended up here — or in the innards of 27 wild boars.

Caesium-137 is a radioactive isotope, formed by nuclear fission on nuclear sites. The particle was infamously released into the environment during the Chernobyl disaster in 1986.
The Milan daily Corriere della Sera reports that 27 samples of wild boar tongues and diaphragms from the 2012-2013 hunting season had been analyzed, which led to the discovery of the elevated levels of the caesium-137, levels that are consistent with a nuclear accident. 
27 samples of the level of cesium 137 was higher than the threshold specified by the Regulation 733 of 2008 as the tolerable limit in the event of a nuclear accident. http://www.corriere.it/cronache/13_marzo_07/cinghiali-radioattivi-intervengono-nas_f9ba913e-874c-11e2-82ae-71d5d7252090.shtml

COUNCIL REGULATION (EC) No 733/2008 of 15 July 2008
…”on the conditions governing imports of agricultural products originating in third countries following the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power station the Community should ensure, with regard to the specific effects of the accident at Chernobyl, that agricultural products and processed agricultural products intended for human consumption and likely to be contaminated are introduced into the Community only according to common arrangements.
(4) Those common arrangements should safeguard the health of consumers, maintain, without having unduly adverse effects on trade between the Community and third countries, the unified nature of the market and prevent deflections of trade.
(5) Compliance with the maximum permitted levels should be the subject of appropriate checks, which may lead to prohibiting imports in cases of non-compliance.”
The issues that come up around trade and importing of products make the enforcement part of the above agreement very hard to implement. On the one hand, the regulation calls for ‘protecting the community’, but on the other, it calls for not affecting trade between nations at all. So whether the contaminated product is coming from around Chernobyl in Russia, or from around Fukushima in Japan, the odds of finding and blocking radiation contaminated food or drink items are remote, due to pressures imposed by the corporations and their ‘bought’ politicians 

Italy is not alone in finding contaminated meat in animals. The above video shows a typical radiation detection machine for finding and measuring radiation in food. It is actually very easy to understand how radiation is being found thousands of miles away from Chernobyl, in food items  located far away in both distance and time.


Radiation is STILL being found today, 30 plus years after Chernobyl, in wild critters in Germany, Finland, Norway, Sweden, British Islands, Scotland, Ireland and more. Even Alaskan and Siberian animals have been contaminated with radiation. But this information is suppressed, denied and ignored by the corporate owned mass media. How and why that happens is a very interesting story. 

Politicians are bribed by the nuclear industry to only pass laws favorable to them, and never to mention any dangers. The corporate owned mass media has huge ad accounts with the nuclear industry, so these mass media outlets as a rule do not ‘rock the boat’, because that would threaten their ad revenues and their bottom line profits.  

The medical industry depends on radiation for a huge portion of their profits, so they will not call attention to this issue either, plus doctors and nurses receive no training in medical school for low dose radiation symptoms or issues. 

Typically, victims suffering low dose radiation poisoning and trying to get help from medical professionals end up being diagnosed with psychological problems and are ordered to smile more, or take drugs to treat their mental issues. 

The nuclear research scientists and scholars who work at universities and colleges almost always get funding from the nuclear industry, so these institutions also stay quiet about the harm that low dose radiation causes, or their funding sources would be cut. 

And finally the nuclear regulators are nothing more than revolving doors into and out of the nuclear industry. A majority of the regulators at the NRC are actually pro industry hacks and nothing more. Bottom line, there is no protection, no information and no one caring for the average person’s health, or safety when it comes to radiation coming out of nuclear facilities. 

Good luck with finding any concrete information that can help protect your family after an accident happens near you. Typically all you will hear is “no levels that would cause  harm”, and thus there is no reason to worry, no reason to move, no matter what is going on, or how much radiation is being released from a plant that is melting down. 

Often what happens after a nuclear accident where massive amounts of radiation are released is that the workers at the plant get their own families out and away, but everyone else is left to suffer and/or die. The workers and scientists know… but they cannot speak either, because they are sworn to secrecy and sign non disclosure agreements. The whole industry from top to bottom is one big, gigantic secret and is based on lies.

Bioaccumulation Of Radiation In Fresh Water And Salt Water Fish After Chernobyl And Fukushima

In the video above, we explore how to detect radiation in food. Why is this the ‘new normal’? With radiation accumulating in food, both animal, vegetable and fruit, we have no way of knowing how much radiation is in it. It is now becoming necessary to test ALL food before consuming it, due to the overwhelming magnitude of radiation contamination from many areas and nuclear facilities globally, not to mention depleted uranium weapons use. 

Toxic radiation accumulates in water supplies after nuclear accidents. Radiation bioconcentrates in fish that live in fresh water and salt water. Runoff of fresh water from land which has been contaminated ends up contaminating oceans, and salt water creatures that live in it. Radiation can and does accumulate and bioconcentrate in fish and other creatures that live in the ocean, just like mercury, for example.  


Most mass media stories about this subject downplay the hazards of nuclear radiation accumulating in animals or other foods. These ‘experts’ end up saying that despite increasing radiation levels in fish, there is ‘no immediate impact on health’. Although these are soothing words, there is little truth in these reports. 

For example, they ignore the fact that children and infants are up to 2,000 times more sensitive to the same low dose of radiation in food or drink. What may be ‘harmless’ for at least a short period to a 200 pound adult healthy male, may be deadly to an egg, sperm, fetus, and/or highly toxic to a fetus,  baby or even a small child. 


If the radiation released from nuclear accidents, uranium recycling plants and nuclear dumping is so harmless, why is there so much resistance to independent experts doing radiation testing of fish, seaweed and shellfish? Medical facilities, hospitals and labs are not ALLOWED to test for radiation in Japan. This looks very much like a cover up. If it is  NOT a coverup, what would a coverup look like. Would a coverup consist of a nation blocking all efforts to monitor and test for radiation by outside independent radiation ‘experts’?


Marine radiation monitoring blocked by Japanese … – Greenpeace Apr 28, 2011… “Now we are getting closer to Fukushima, the Japanese government has begun obstructing our efforts to do independent research. The sparse data published by the government and TEPCO is not enough to understand the real risks of the continuous leakage of radioactive water in the sea. 

The Japanese people are in great need of independent information on the radioactive contamination of their seafood supply. Therefore, we are planning to do research on the radioactive contamination of seaweed, fish and shellfish.


Despite this great need for information, the Japanese government today refused a permit to do research within the territorial waters of Japan. We are allowed to conduct research outside this 12 mile zone, but this is not the area where the Japanese catch their fish and collect their seaweed.”


Marine life soaking up radiation along Fukushima coast | Greenpeace May 27, 2011 … “After having difficulties finding a lab in Japan to do detailed radiation analysis, (in other words, total shutdown of all labs) we sent samples of seaweed, fish, and shellfish collected by our radiation monitoring teams both onshore and on the Rainbow to professional labs in France and Belgium. The results of the details analysis are back – and we can say that the situation in the ocean along the Fukushima coast is worse than we originally thought.

The new data shows that some seaweed contamination levels are not only 50 times higher than safety limits – far higher than our initial measurements showed – but also that the contamination is spreading over a wide area, and accumulating in sea life, rather than simply dispersing like the Japanese authorities originally claimed would happen.”

http://www.greenpeace.org/usa/en/news-and-blogs/campaign-blog/marine-life-soaking-up-radiation-along-fukush/blog/35003/

In October, a U.S. study – co-authored by oceanographer Ken Buesseler, a senior scientist at the non-profit Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Woods Hole, Mass., – reported Fukushima caused history’s biggest-ever release of radiation into the ocean – 10 to 100 times more than the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe.


“It’s completely untrue to say this level of radiation is safe or harmless,” said Gordon Edwards, president of the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility.


Edwards, who is also a math professor at Vanier College, said Fukushima has highlighted how lackadaisical Canadian authorities are about radiation risks – the result, he says, of the influence of Canada’s powerful nuclear industry.

“The reassurances have been completely irresponsible. To say there are no health concerns flies in the face of all scientific evidence,” said Edwards, who has advised the federal auditor-general’s office and Ontario government on nuclear-power issues.

Seaweed contamination cause for concern in Japan | Greenpeace May 13, 2011 … Fukushima; Pacific Ocean radiation levels up 45 million times normal. 


Fish caught close to the Fukushima nuclear plant was 2,500 times over the legal safe radiation limit. The murasoi fish, which is comparable to a rockfish, was found in the area surrounding the now-closed power plant.

The Pacific Ocean has currents in northern Japan, which create a counterclockwise rotation in the ocean there. Another swirl allows Fukusima radiation to come back around to the area around Tokyo in central Japan.  These roations in the ocean recirculate the radiation around and around right around the coast of Japan. This is one explanation for cesium levels of 25,800 Bq. per Kg. in fish  in this area. 

At 4:30 into the NASA Simulation of Global Ocean Currents we can see the ocean current swirl off northern Japan above. Watch the entire video of all of the ocean currents below…

Asahi: Gov’t worried about highly radioactive fish — Why are radiation readings still 100s of times over official safe limits?

Let’s take a look at what happens to fish and their radiation levels after a nuclear accident. Here is a comparison to todays reporting on fish contamination levels, this article is from from July 19, 2012. Compare this to todays article.


Post-Fukushima, Japan’s irradiated fish worry B.C. experts


The highest cesium level in all of the catches came in March—a year after the accident—when a landlocked masu salmon caught in a Japanese river was found to have a whopping 18,700 becquerels of cesium per kilogram—or 187 times Japan’s ceiling.
“Those are high numbers. It would give me pause if I were eating fish in Japan.…Imported fish are also a concern,” said Fisher, a marine-sciences professor at New York’s Stony Brook University. Fisher added in a phone interview that the persistently high cesium numbers may be a sign that the Fukushima plant is still leaking radiation into the ocean.
The data shows the contamination has remained high in both saltwater species and freshwater fish found in Japanese lakes and rivers. Especially high cesium levels have been found in recent months in these saltwater species: halibut (a catch in May 2012 had 570 Bq/kg), sole (a catch in January had 180 Bq/kg), and cod (a catch in February had 260 Bq/kg).

Tritium in Water and Bioaccumulation of Cesium and Strontium
Transport and accumulation of cesium-137 and mercury in the Clinch River and Watts Bar Reservoir system

According to Enenews; “The serious accidents of the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant have been contaminating a vast area in eastern Japan, home of 60 million people. […]
The widespread contamination in eastern Japan
To the south west of Fukushima prefecture, there lies the Kanto region which as well as containing the metropolitan prefecture of Tokyo also comprises Ibaraki prefecture, Tochigi prefecture, Gunma prefecture, Saitama prefecture, and Chiba prefecture. In the area, there is the Tone river basin that is the one of biggest river basins (16,840 km2) in Japan. […]
[…] In areas within a radius of 100 km from the nuclear plant, active cesium contamination levels of the Ayu are more than 200 Bq/kg. In those between a radius of 100 km and 200 km, it is around 60–200 Bq/kg. In those between a radius of 200 km and 300 km in which Tokyo is included, it is 20–60 Bq/kg. Therefore, it is estimated that contamination of freshwater fish is extended to all prefectures in eastern Japan. The contamination is recognized as far as Shizuoka prefecture, 400 km south-west from the plant. […]

The problem of radiation contaminated ocean and freshwater fish and other life is not limited to Japan, and the 60 million people mentioned above. Remember that fish and plants bio concentrate radiation, so the low levels mentioned are going to be much higher in animals and plants. 

The USA is importing Japanese food (including fish and seaweed) with no restrictions. The Japanese are exporting food even from these contaminated regions.  What happens to a pregnant mom, a baby, or child if they eat contaminated seaweed, tea, or fish? 



The US government has raised the ‘allowed’ or ‘safe’ level of radiation in US food. Thus, all food is now safe, even if it is contaminated. India however, has banned all imports of Japanese food. The corporate owned mass media only talks about how ‘safe’ everything is, without getting into the actual process of bioaccumulation of radiation in foods. Their mantra seems to be to protect profits at all costs. The mass media keeps people stupid and buying everything, no matter how contaminated it is. 

Radiation contaminated foods are regularly exported from contaminated areas around other nuclear accidents, because the financial losses are too high to bear, if the damage and harm were truly acknowledged. No one wants to lose their farm and their way of life. No one wants to stop fishing, hunting, or collecting seaweed, mussels and other shellfish. 

Because of the profit motive and pressure from people who do not care about the health of future generations, contaminated fish and other food is grown and exported to other countries. In this way, radiation contamination spreads around the globe, into billions of people. 

Have you ever wondered why the cancer rate among children is going up each year? Why are whole hospitals now dedicated to caring for children with cancer, leukemia and other ‘adult’ or old age diseases? These things did not exist just a few generations ago. Yes, there may be other causes, but certainly radiation should be counted as just ONE of those causes.

Radiation In Ocean Mist And Spray Can Travel Inland Up to 300 Kilometers


The above video shows one simulation of how Fukushima radiation can spread throughout the whole Pacific ocean. That is bad enough. But what happens when the low dose radiation gets to the shores of the USA? 

According to Ventura County Reporter; “Scientific studies from the United Kingdom and Europe show that sea water infused with radiation of the sort spewing out of Fukushima can travel inland from the coast up to 300 kilometers.A 62-page UK study released in December 2011 found that sea spray and marine aerosols created from bubbles forming and popping when the sea is choppy or waves break have increased concentrations of radioactive “actinides.” Actinides are chemically alike radioactive metallic elements and include uranium and plutonium. One actinide infused the spray with an 812 times greater concentration of americium-241 than normal amounts of Am-241 in ambient seawater. The report cited information that sea-spray-blown cesium 137 was found 200 kilometers from the discharge source in the New Hebrides islands in northern Scotland.

In another study done by the UK Atomic Energy Research Establishment, “results showed a remarkable and sharp 30 per cent increase in cancer rates in those living within 1km of the coast. The effect was very local and dropped away sharply at 2km…Using special cloth filters, they had measured Plutonium in the air by distance from the contaminated coast. The trend was the same as the cancer trend, increasing sharply in the 1km strip near the coast. We later examined cancer rates in a higher resolution questionnaire study in Carlingford, Ireland. This clearly showed the effect increasing inside the 1km radius in the same way. The results were never published in scientific literature but were presented to the UK CERRIE committee and eventually made it into a book which I wrote in 2007 entitled, “Wolves of Water.” Professor Christopher Busby from the European Committee on Radiation Risks for RT
Either way, the moral of the studies and the video is that anyone living close to a coast in a radiation contaminated area should move away from the coast as far inland as possible in order to protect their family from the negative health effects of sea fog laden with radiation.

Plutonium And Cesium Bio-Concentrates 26,000 Times In Ocean Algae, Up To 5,570,000 Bq/Kg in Land Algae

Would algae that are highly contaminated with radioactive substances such as cesium glow in the dark? Interesting question… here is one short video about what our potential future may look like, if Fukushima radiation is concentrated in marine algae to a very high level.. Is this scenario possible?




It is well known that all living things bioconcentrate radiation up the food chain. Let us explore what happens on the first step up the food chain, via algae. 

In Japan, black algae grows along streets, in pools and in towns. After the Fukushima accident, this black algae is concentrating alpha radiation emitting substance (such as plutonium) to a high level. 
Radiation detectors show that this black substance/algae is  emitting high amounts of radiation of gamma, beta and alpha radiation, depending on what kind of detector is used. Of course, pro nuclear officials say the substance is ‘harmless’. Would these high radiation levels and concentrations be enough to make this algae glow in the dark?

Minami Soma City assemblyman Koichi Ooyama discloses the result of the test of the mysterious black dust found in locations in Minami Soma City […]

SOURCE: ameblo.jp/rvf400-1014

[…] His measurement on the surface of this black dust was 295 microsieverts/hour. Assemblyman Ooyama apparently sent the sample to Professor Tomoya Yamauchi of Kobe University. Professor Yamauchi did the test, and here’s the result, from Assemblyman Ooyama’s blog:
Cs-134: 485,252 Bq/kg
Cs-137: 604,360 Bq/kg
This substance, whatever it is, is very dangerous. If it is not algae in every case, it could also very well be MOX (plutonium) fuel nano particle dust, according to Stephan, an analytical chemist posting on Enenews, largely because it is light, easily blows around. 

In another news post, a black radioactive dust/algae sample was tested, and measured 309,000 Bq/Kg of cesium when wet and 1,080,000 Bq/Kg when dry.

– Plutonium 238 measured in Minamisoma (Fukushima Diary, April 26, 2012):
0.038 Bq/Kg (2.47Bq/m2) of Plutonium 238 was measured in Minamisoma.
They also measured 0.047 Bq/Kg of Plutonium 239 and 240, and 0.73 Bq/Kg of Plutonium 241.
8.5 Bq/Kg of Strontium 89, and 50 Bq/Kg of Strontium 90 was also measured

Minamisoma Official: Highly contaminated black algae observed everywhere — Due to bioaccumulation July 5, 2012

In the following Japanese language video, the black substance is determined to be blue-green algae, a specific form of cyanobacteria, according to Professor Saburo Suzuki of Tohoku University


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vzvqu_tRWe4


“I’m Koichi Oyama, an official of Minamisoma City. I sent you additional information about the black substance we talked about yesterday. They are a bacterium type which likes to absorb the radioactive substance… everywhere on the paved surfaces in the residential area and at residential houses and they drift on the side walks,… and on the road..

Scientists have been studying heavy metals (which are also radioactive) and how algae accumulate them…Here are a few links that lead to many scholarly research articles about this same subject.

This information and reporting from very credible sources (none of them affiliated with the nuclear industry or regulators)  should be sufficient to show a person with any common sense, that algae can and does bio-concentrate various types of radiation to very high levels. So whether all of the samples tested are pure nano dust or pure algae or some combination of the two does not make any difference. At least some of these samples tested are algae, and that algae has been shown to bio-accumulate radiation. 

Now let’s move to the ocean and see if the same bio-centration of radioactive substances happens in algae there. In a UK study, it was “found that the Irish Sea has a micro layer on top of it, perhaps only thousandths of a millimeter in thickness, that can become imbued with fine particulate material and it’s absorbed radiation. These concentrations of plutonium and americium are four to five times their concentrations in ambient seawater. Plutonium concentrates by 26,000 times in floating algal blooms at sea, says the report. http://www.vcreporter.com/cms/story/detail/?id=9886


Many scientific articles point at the same thing…. 
Algae do not just accumulate heavy metals. They also accumulate a wide variety of radioactive isotopes, of all kinds.

It is also well known that slightly and even highly radioactive substances glow in particular ways.. Can algae that absorb high levels of radiation glow in the dark? Here is one example of how radioactive substances that are only slightly radioactive actually glow in the dark…


Here is another example of a ‘nuclear pulse’ glow in the dark.. In this example, a reactor core creates a blue flash and glows..


So far, we have seen radioactive substances and radioactive materials glowing in the dark. Can this happen with living things as well? What would happen if highly radioactive (and possibly glowing) algae are eaten by larger critters, which are then eaten by people or by fish? 


As we have learned from the above information, radiation accumulates up the food chain, starting with algae both on land and in fresh or ocean water. As algae bio-accumulates radiation, how much will it multiply by the time it gets up to human beings? Each step up the food chain can and does multiply and concentrates radiation by 10 to 26,000 times, as we see from the above examples and tests.

Fukushima Heating Ocean; 3 Melted Coriums The Cause?

In the above satellite infrared heat photo, the Fukushima area shows up as a HUGE blotchy HOT red in a global map that has no other hot spots of that size in it. What would be the reason for the hot spot? Could it be that the 3 coriums that broke free of containment are releasing heated water into the ocean, along with ‘treated’ and heated water being released from reactors, spent fuel pools and more?

A weekly NOAA climate graph is released, so that anyone can follow up on this hot spot at a later time, to see if it is still there. It would make sense that if the coriums are releasing large amounts of hot water into the ocean, that this would continue on for years, and not be a localized, short term event. 
http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/oa/climate/research/sst/ani-weekly.html


As a followup, the same spot does not show up week after week, so this theory is not going to hold any hot water. However, despite the ocean NOT heating up consistently off the coast, Enenews shows TEPCO provided graphic and news release, which admits that radioactive groundwater and highly radioactive basement water is being drained into the ocean. 

TV: Groundwater shows massive spike in radioactive material at Fukushima plant — Strontium-90 up over 10,000% in past few months — Tepco apologizes (VIDEO)

All of the standard assumptions and projections by the experts assume no more radiation entering the ocean, the air or the groundwater, after the initial accident back in 2011. The ‘official’ assumptions and computer models are all based on zero emissions about one to two months after the Fukushima tsunami hit, and some limit the radiation released to only ONE reactor, not three reactors and three spent fuel pools, plus one exploding all of it’s contents all over many miles of surrounding land and ocean. 
No matter where one looks, NONE of the ‘experts’ assumptions include constant radiation releases into the ocean from fuel rods blown into the ocean from the nuclear/criticality explosion at #3.  These fuel rod pieces are lying in a circle for 2 kilometers around the plant on the ocean floor. 
In addition, TEPCO admits that there are constant flows into the ocean from contaminated basement water in the Fukushima buildings.

In addition, there are air emissions from the various reactors and spent fuel pools experiencing recriticalities.

3/29 2013 from Nuckelchen

Not one single regulator or industry ‘expert’ is accounting for 3 coriums that left the buildings and went underground. These coriums are interacting with groundwater, which then flows into the ocean. The closest that the ‘experts’ come to this is that they say that reactors melted down, but they have no idea where anything is, and the radiation is too intense for anyone to go looking for it. 


At Fukushima Daichi, 3 Coriums Left Containment Compared To 1 At Chernobyl; via A Green Road
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2013/01/at-fukushima-3-coriums-left-containment.html

TEPCO maintains that none of the coriums left containment, but the radiation levels inside those buildings are so high, that when they send in robots to figure out where the coriums went, they are ‘killed’ within a short period of time. The same thing goes for humans. No one could go into these buildings and come out alive.  Yet, at Chernobyl, hundreds of thousands of soldiers were forced into service, and told to manhandle live and hot chunks of fuel rods and graphite in order to clean up the site. The radiation around Chernobyl was as ‘hot’ if not hotter than it is around the Fukushima buildings. But no one is going into them.

After Chernobyl cooled off enough, scientists went into the sarcophagus, clambering around fuel rods that used to be inside the reactor, in order to find out what happened to the corium. They went down into the basement at great risk to their lives just to find out where it went and they took pictures. No such effort has been made at Fukushima. NO Japanese scientist has volunteered for such duty.

For Tepco to say there are no coriums that left the reactors is like someone saying the moon is made of blue cheese; there is absolutely no proof of them still being there, but plenty of evidence that they have left the premises in all three cases.

The constant flow of radioactive water and air from various sources may very well mean that even the dilution of the ocean will not be enough to stop radioactive contamination of all life in the Pacific Ocean, which a billion people depend on for food. What are the consequences of radioactive fires and emissions that no one can put out? 

Dahr Jamail Predicts No More Fish In Pacific Ocean by 2048
“Three years later the same scientists, along with colleagues from across the world, published an even more startling paper that predicted a total collapse of all fish that are currently caught commercially by 2048. “
Dr. Helen Caldicott MD advocates for zero-radiation
Dr. Caldicott MD is totally aware as a medical doctor of the dangers of radiation in food and water. She has said in various speeches that she does not eat imported food from Europe, due to radioactive contamination of a wide variety of foods from Chernobyl in 1986.

When she visited Japan after the accident there, she did so only on the condition that she have access to food and water that was imported from areas outside of the thousands of square miles of radioactively contaminated areas in Japan, due to Fukushima. 

The Fukushima accident adds thousands of square miles of fertile ground and more thousands of square miles of ocean water that cannot be used to grow, raise or fish for food, due to radioactive contamination concerns. Every nuclear accident draws the circle tighter like a hangman’s noose, around the neck of humanity.

More and more land is becoming contaminated, and less is available for food both in the water and on land. By using nuclear power, humanity is slowly but surely committing global suicide, one nuclear accident at a time.
Whether the 3 Fukushima coriums actually exist outside containment or not, nuclear accidents happen each and every year on a global basis, but they are not reported.

Most nuclear accidents are not even reported. Some melt downs are completely covered up. Almost all of them are minimized to the point where they sound like someone dropped a cup of tea.

If you read and understand the information contained in the articles above, you will get a glimpse of the truth. You will start to understand and comprehend that the nuclear industry is built on lies, deceptions, minimizations, denials, secrecy and coverups. Why would they change that now, just for you, especially when a potential life extinction event happens?
Humanity has to figure out a way to save itself from the horrors of nuclear power. Pandora’s Box has been opened, and the horrors are exiting the box.
On a positive note, we can vote for candidates that support moving away from nuclear power. The Green Party for example accepts no contributions from corporate monopolies that control the other two major parties.

We can get involved and we can each make a difference individually. We can each inform and empower others. There is always hope. Keep the faith. Never give up, even when it all seems hopeless. 

Fukushima Heating Ocean; 3 Melted Coriums The Cause?  via @AGreenRoad

Hanford; Leaking Radioactive Gas Into Air and Toxic Fluids Into Columbia River

There are 177 tanks full of the most toxic, most highly radioactive waste products in the world, all of them concentrated at the Hanford Site. 


These 177 tanks were built in 1943, and are made of concrete and metal. A few of these tanks have double carbon steel liners. The Dept. of Energy knew back in 2001 that at least 67 of these tanks had leaked at least 3.8 million liters of waste up to that point. The only question left is how much has leaked since then and where did these leaking toxic and radioactive materials go?


PNNL reports that toxic and radioactive fluids from these 67 leaking tanks ended up in the Columbia River starting in 2002. PNNL “measured both radiological and nonradiological constituents in Columbia River water during 2002 as part of a continuing environmental monitoring program (Poston et al. 2003). Cumulative water samples are collected at Priest Rapids Dam and at the Richland pumphouse (Figure 4.4-4). Additional samples were taken at transects of the river and at near-shore locations at the Vernita Bridge, 100-F Area, 100-N Area, the Hanford Townsite, and the 300 Area.

These water samples were collected at frequencies varying from quarterly to annually. Results are presented in Bisping (2003) and summarized in Poston et al. (2003). These data show a statistical increase in tritium, nitrate, uranium, and iodine-129 along the Hanford Reach. 

All these constituents are known to be entering the river from contaminated groundwater beneath the Hanford Site (Section 4.4.3). Measurements of strontium-90 at the Richland pumphouse were not statistically higher than those at the Vernita Bridge even though strontium-90 is known to enter the river through groundwater inflow at 100 N Area. 

Measurements of tritium along transects showed higher concentrations near the shoreline relative to mid-river for samples from the 100-N Area, the Hanford Townsite, the 300 Area, and the Richland pumphouse.

The above report makes sense when one looks at the area in which these tanks were placed. One would think that the ‘experts’ in charge back then would think about leaks, and would locate these tanks in an area that was mainly clay, which is good at limiting fluid movement and absorbing toxic radiation. 

However, quite the opposite happened. The nuclear ‘experts’ at Hanford located all tanks in an area that is full of sand and gravel, which is ideal for quick movement of any liquids and no filtration of radioactivity. These tanks were built on top of 200 feet of sand and gravel, which is just about the WORST possible thing to do with metal tanks full of liquid radioactive wastes.
The following report documents dumping of radioactive materials into the Columbia river. 

“The chief findings:

o Sixty percent of the Hanford Reach riverbed of the Columbia River is contaminated with solid, radioactive waste from Hanford’s thorium-to-uranium-233 production campaign. 

o The contamination probably resulted from disposal of solid radioactive waste directly into the Columbia River. This dumping occurred just upstream of the D-Reactor outfall.

At that location, there are remains of an old river crossing, which might have served as a radioactive waste disposal system.”
http://www.radioactivist.org/Q%20&%20A%20from%20GAP.pdf


Even without the above official reports that seem to prove dumping of radioactive materials and tanks leaking radiation into the Hanford River since 2002, we can logically compute what happens, given the fact that leaks have been happening in these tanks since the 1960’s. 
Let us assume that the radioactive liquids ONLY traveled 2 feet per day through this porous sand and gravel. We know, that sounds hard to believe, give the porosity of sand and gravel but let us stay conservative for now. 

If the liquids traveled 2 feet per day towards the river, which is 5 miles away, it would take 13,200 days to get there. By extension, this means the radiation would reach the river in 36 years, from the day the leaks started in 1960. From 1960 to 2013, totals 53 years. Is it any wonder that reports keep surfacing of radiation from Hanford entering the Columbia river?

Here is a specific listing of hundreds of types of radioactive isotopes that have been categorized and listed. “In this report you will find a listing of the names of 237 radionuclides that Hanford released into the air and into the Columbia River. This report will also briefly describe what would need to be done to estimate the amount released for each of the radionuclides. 


Meanwhile, the government and agency in charge of cleaning up the site downplays the dangers of radiation, as seen in the video above. They all consistently claim that only 1 to possibly 5 tanks started leaking recently, but that they pose no hazard to health. This news report is consistent with the nuclear industry strategy of denial, minimization, and outright coverup of what is really going on with radioactive substances.


Even the state governor standing up and asking for action at Hanford is way off the mark as far as knowing or admitting to what is REALLY going on.

Now that we have discussed the leaking of radioactive fluids into the Hanford River, which serves as the drinking water for many communities, let’s dive into the radioactive air emissions that have been going on since Hanford was built and operating. 

According to KING 5 News, April 5, 2013 (h/t Anonymous tip): The Department of Energy (DOE) issued a statement Friday insisting a hydrogen gas release at Hanford last month was not an unexpected event. But the DOE does not challenge KING 5’s exclusive report disputing the duration of the potentially dangerous release. 

On Thursday, KING 5 challenged the DOE’s assessment of the March 15th release, which stated it was an expected 36-hour event. Based on information from confidential sources, KING 5 learned the release actually lasted much longer, up to five days. […] KING 5 maintains the duration and intensity of the release elevate it beyond what could be considered “expected.” […]

http://enenews.com/tv-gas-release-from-u-s-nuclear-site-covered-up-continued-for-several-days-spontaenous-not-controlled-video

Official government and nuclear industry reports claim that there is nothing really going on at Hanford that is cause for alarm. However, just in the two sections above, anyone with common sense can see that the Hanford is a deadly, toxic waste dump that is releasing harmful radioactive substances into the air, groundwater and the Columbia river as well. To say this constant leaking and spewing of radiation into the surrounding environment and nearby communities stinks to the the height of extreme hubris. 


Could it be that there is a whole industry built on secrets, lies, deception and coverups? 

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

When will we learn that nuclear energy is not meant for human beings? Nuclear power is too dangerous, too toxic, too invisible to trust ordinary humans with it, while at the same time tempting them with huge bonuses, perks, subsidies, and pork barrel spending. Remember what happened in the Greek tragedy to the boy who flew too close to the sun?

It talks about how the UN estimates that there are over 9 million victims from Chernobyl, not the 200 or so that the IAEA talks about.  Choose English subtitles.

Commentary:

“My friends, you have been lied to about the hazards of radiation your entire life (at least since the 1940s). An ongoing information war rages, and I do have some hope for progress. While the media repeats obvious lies about the death toll in Chernobyl (“43” absurd in the extreme) most regular people just don’t believe what they’re hearing from the pro-nuclear pundits.

This Swiss investigation of the Chernobyl cover-up is must-see viewing for anyone who would ever consider typing a thought about radioactivity. I have transcribed some of the highlights, including admissions by the head of the World Health Organization, front and center…

“Because the IAEA reports directly to the Security Council of the UN, and we all specialized agencies report to the Economic and Development Council. The organization which reports to the Security Council–not hierarchically, we are all equal–but for atomic affairs, military use and civil use, peaceful or civil use they have the authority. They command.”
-Dr. Hiroshi Nakajima, former head of UN World Health Organization 

The IAEA has the job of promoting atomic energy worldwide. They are not a trustworthy source for information about health effects of radioactivity. The system has been designed such that the organization which promotes atomic power has supremacy over the health monitoring organizations, and the WHO can simply be blocked from investigating, as happened here:

“In 1995 the Director General of WHO, Dr. Hiroshi Nakajima, tried to inform on Chernobyl by organizing in Geneva an international conference with 700 experts and physicians. This tentative was blocked. The International Agency for Atomic Energy blocked the proceedings which were never published. The truth on the consequences of Chernobyl would have been a disaster for the promotion of the atomic industry.” (Nuclear Controversies)

In my recent article, The UN Would Never Lie to George Monbiot, I explored this IAEA role in more depth. A 2006 IAEA “study” on the 20th anniversary of the Chernobyl meltdown claimed it had a “consensus” of “100 leading scientists.” How does this measure up to the “700 experts and physicians” that the IAEA had a hand in silencing a decade before? 

The “consensus” myth is a Big Lie. Those that repeat the IAEA’s arguments without investigating this matter fully are either incompetent (which is the generous assessment) or downright evil. Children are sick and dying because of the failure of governments to acknowledge that radioactivity — even in very small doses — destroys life, creates deformities in the body, causes cancers and myriad other conditions. Children across the region are suffering horribly. Up to one million have died as a result of Chernobyl, as of 2006 (Yablokov et. al.).

If you’re not going to watch NUCLEAR CONTROVERSIES right now, then here are the highlights. Use them well.

“The representative for the International Agency for Atomic Energy (A. Gonzales) maintains that the Chernobyl catastrophe caused 31 deaths of a few hundred highly irradiated individuals and 2,000 thyroid cancers in children. This UN agency recognizes only validated data, validated by the laboratories of Los Alamos and the French Atomic Energy Commissariat, CEA, two atomic bomb makers.”

“Nesterenko is the only scientist who systematically measured the internal artificial radioactivity (of children in the contaminated zone). His measures show that contamination is 8 times higher than that published by the Minister of Health, who tried to stop him.”

“According to Professor Bandazhevsky over 50 bequerels per kilo body weight lead to irreversible lesions in vital organs.”

“On June the 18th Yuri Bandazhevski, author of more than 400 scientific publications and 8 monographs, owner of 7 patents, member of 5 academies, recipient of 5 international awards was condemned by the military court of the Supreme Court of Belarus to 8 years in a work camp for alleged corruption. One year of inquiry could produce no proof against him.”

“Today out of 100 children in Belarus, ony 20 can be declared to be healthy. Before the Chernobyl catastrophe the number was 80 out of 100. The IAEA, the UNSCEAR and the World Health Organization, who do not study the effects of the internal contamination by incorporated radionuclides, have no explanation for the increased incidence of somatic pathologies in those children.”

Radiation And Geiger Counter Readings Simplified

Thanks to; http://nukeprofessional.blogspot.com/2012/04/geiger-counter-interpretation.html

Geiger Counters and radiation readings can be confusing. The above chart, created by nukeprofessional, simplifies radiation readings at Geiger COUNTERS, so that even a beginner can understand what the readings mean and what effect they have.


Of course, if you drive near a nuclear accident site, as the person is doing above, and your Geiger Counter goes off like this one, be sure to turn around or speed up and get the H out of there! There is no need to interpret radiation readings when your Geiger Counter is beeping like crazy and the red light is flashing.

Remember that Geiger counters can only estimate a tiny fraction of the total radiation you are being exposed to. And as the chart shows, internal radiation is 20 times more dangerous than the same amount of external radiation.

If you are measuring external readings of dangerous radiation, that same radiation is going to end up inside of you, if you eat or drink contaminated food or liquids, inhale dust or gases, etc.

Fukushima; High Radiation Readings Found In USA Rain, Snow In 2013

The sleet and snow that fell on January 15, 2013 in White County, Arkansas was not normal. Background levels in this area are 35 cpm. The sleet and snow was showing a radiation alert level above 100 cpm. 


The high levels only lasted about 24 hours indicating a short half life of the hot particles. This kind of radiation exposure can reduce the immune system and may be the cause for recent spikes in flu and illness in this area and others. 
Why are the authorities are not warning parents to keep there children out of this unsafe wintery mix? 

Not creating panic or concern seems to be more important than public safety. Why warn parents that exposure to the snow and sleet is equal to flying at 30000 feet or exposure levels for nuclear plant workers?

These high radiation readings are not being investigated by any nuclear regulators, nuclear plant operators, or nuclear scientists who are part of the nuclear industry.

There are other radiation readings taken by other researchers, which show the same type of thing happening in other parts of the USA. 

Radiation going up slowly and quickly across the US

Radiation Continues Spreading and Spiking Across USA

Could these high radiation readings in snow and rain be the end product of radiation releases from Fukushima?

Low Level Radiation Causes Premature, Accelerated Aging, Chronic Diseases In Young, Increased Premature Deaths




At this Anti-Aging Conference, Dr. Ron Klatz and Dr. Nick Delgado elaborate on the current dangers of radiation damage caused to the body by the Fukishima Reactor in Japan. 

American Academy of Anti Aging President speaks about cancers and different methods of protection against harmful radioactive particles found in California’s food supply, plus much more. www.nickdelgado.com

RADIATION CAUSES ACCELERATED AGING

“It is acknowledged that much of the evidence relevant to radiation and aging is for high doses; yet this review highlights where possible the evidence produced by low dose and low dose rate studies.

Long after exposure, a declining naïve T-cell pool was found to be associated with both radiation and aging [24].

Kusunoki and Hayashi [23] proposed that radiation accelerated the natural processes associated with immunological aging.”

* IR can promote the characteristics of aging in tissues, such as increased inflammation and fibrosis…

An age-associated decline in nucleotide excision repair has been demonstrated by UV irradiation of human dermal fibroblast cultures [86].

In general, radiation-mediated aging appears to be more associated with free-radical damage, DSBs, apoptosis and inflammation rather than dysfunctional metabolic processes.

The case is well documented for radiation-induced aging at high doses.” http://www.impactaging.com/papers/v1/n11/full/100081.html

Anyone who has a sunburn, knows the power of harmful radiation. The picture of the truck driver below illustrates the point. This truck driver was exposed to sunlight for 20 years, mainly on one side of his face, with the sun’s ‘radiation’ coming in through that one window. The other side of his face was mostly shaded. 
The sun emits ‘natural’ radiation. This radiation can and does accelerate skin aging, especially if a person spends too much time out in the sun. It is not uncommon for a person who spends time out in the sun (without any protection), to end up with a painful ‘radiation’ skin burn. 
The sun emits UVA and UVB radiation, which causes burn damage to skin, especially for those who have not spent any time in the sun. Long term exposure to low dose radiation from the sun may cause skin cancer. 



Radiation from nuclear bombs, nuclear plants or nuclear accidents, although different from UVA and UVB radiation, has a similar effect on the skin. The radiation from man made radioactive sources accelerates aging of all organs, glands and systems, through a process of free radical damage, radiation burns and actual death of cells from direct exposure to radiation sources, both external and internal.  
It is estimated that 50 million people in Japan were exposed to high radiation levels from the Fukushima multiple reactor meltdown, according to the following video.

NUCLEAR BOMBS AND NUCLEAR WEAPONS
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/p/nuclear-bombs-and-nuclear-weapons.html


Radiation released by nuclear accidents or nuclear bombs can also accelerate aging of communities in another way. In areas affected by radiation contamination, such as Chernobyl and Fukushima, (just to name a few) people who are paying attention and learn about the dangers of low dose radiation, leave the community. The result of young people, children and younger couples leaving is that mainly older people and poor people end up staying in the radiation contaminated areas. 

Low Dose Radiation Dangers/Symptoms For Children And Adults
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/p/low-dose-radiation-dangers-for-children.html

“…In April 2012, the government released newly revised guidelines regarding the evacuation zones from the plant, but wide-area evacuation still continues in Fukushima. The population of 72,000 in Minamisoma before the accident decreased to approximately 10,000 just after the accident. On March 29, 2012, it had recovered to approximately 45,000. The proportion of those aged 65 and older increased from 25.9% to 32.1% (Figure 1A). In addition, the retention rate of population according to age group has dramatically changed (Figure 1B). Many younger than 40, especially infants, children, and young parents, moved out of the communities because of fear regarding radiation exposure, causing a rapid increase in the proportion of elderly people. In addition, loss of ordinary lifestyle may inhibit activities of daily living of older adults. Elderly adults dislike moving, and many continued to live there, suggesting the breakup of communities and families. The average age of the population in Minamisoma has increased by 14 years because of the nuclear disaster, with younger people leaving, whereas older people have stayed behind, reaching the level that it had been estimated it would reach by 2025. Similar events have been observed in Futaba county and Iitate village near Minamisoma….”

Mutagenesis; Dangers Of Low Dose Ionizing Radiation

Mutagenesis ( /mjuːtəˈɛnɪsɪs/) is a process by which the genetic information of an organism is changed, resulting in a mutation. It may occur spontaneously in nature, or as a result of exposure to mutagens (such as manmade synthetic radioactive contaminants; strontium, plutonium, uranium, thorium, Xenon, Krypton, Iodine, and approximately 900 hundred more like these.)  

Children’s Cancer Rate Is Increasing Every Year; WHY?; via A Green Roadhttp://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/10/childrens-cancer-rate-is-increasing.html


Mutagenesis can lead to cancer and various inheritable diseases, but it is also the driving force of evolution (over millions of years, with only small amounts of natural background radiation). Mutagenesis as a science was developed based on work done by Hermann Muller, Charlotte Auerbach and J. M. Robson in the first half of the 20th century.[1] (Man made radiation is greatly increasing the speed and negative consequences of mutagenesis)

Background


DNA may be modified, either naturally or artificially, by a number of physical, chemical and biological agents, resulting in mutations. In 1927, Hermann Muller first demonstrated mutation with observable changes in the chromosomes can be caused by irradiating fruit flies with X-ray,[2] and lent support to the idea of mutation as the cause of cancer.[3] His contemporaryLewis Stadler also showed the mutational effect of X-ray on barley in 1928,[4] and ultraviolet(UV) radiation on maize in 1936.[5] In 1940s, Charlotte Auerbach and J. M. Robson, found that mustard gas can also cause mutations in fruit flies.[6]

While changes to the chromosome caused by X-ray and mustard gas were readily observable to the early researchers, other changes to the DNA induced by other mutagens were not so easily observable, and the mechanism may be complex and takes longer to unravel. For example, soot was suggested to be a cause of cancer as early as 1775,[7] and coal tar was demonstrated to cause cancer in 1915.[8] The chemicals involved in both were later shown to be polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH).[9]

Lethal Dangers of CT Scans And X-Rays; via A Green Road http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/05/lethal-danger-of-ct-scans-and-x-rays.html

DNA may sustain more than 50,000 damages per cell per day,[13] and some estimates put the number of oxidative adducts per cell generated through reactive oxidative species at 150,000.[14] If left uncorrected, these adducts can give rise to mutation. In nature, the mutations that arise may be beneficial or deleterious – it is the driving force of evolution, an organism may acquire new traits through genetic mutation, but mutation may also result in impaired function of the genes, and in severe cases, causing the death of the organism.



In the laboratory, however, mutagenesis is a useful technique for generating mutations that allows the functions of genes and gene products to be examined in detail, producing proteins with improved characteristics or novel function, as well as mutant strains with useful properties. Initially the ability of radiation and chemical mutagens to cause mutation was exploited to generate random mutations, later techniques were developed to introduce specific mutations. (The danger of this theory however is allowing uncontrolled mutagenesis out in the world due to higher radiation levels, resulting in cascading negative chromosome changes, which then result in the extinction of all life on the planet.)

Mechanisms


Mutagenesis may occur endogenously, for example through spontaneous hydrolysis, or through normal cellular processes that can generate reactive oxygen species and DNA adducts, or through error in replication and repair.[15] Mutagenesis may also arise as a result of the presence of environmental mutagens that induces changes to the DNA. The mechanism by which mutation arises varies according to the causative agent, the mutagen, involved. Most mutagens act either directly, or indirectly via mutagenic metabolites, on the DNA producing lesions. Some however may affect the replication or chromosomal partition mechanism, and other cellular processes.


Cancer – The Forbidden Cures; via A Green Road
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/05/cancer-forbidden-cures.html


Many chemical mutagens require biological activation to become mutagenic. An important group of enzymes involved in the generation of mutagenic metabolites is cytochrome P450.[16] Other enzymes that may also produce mutagenic metabolites include glutathione S-transferase and microsomal epoxide hydrolase. Mutagens that are not mutagenic by themselves but require biological activation are called promutagens.

Many mutations arise as a result of problems caused by the DNA lesions during replication, resulting in errors in replication. In bacteria, extensive damage to the DNA due to mutagens results in single-stranded DNA gaps during replication. This induces the SOS response, an emergency repair process that is also error-prone, thereby generating mutations. In mammalian cells, stalling of replication at a damaged sites induces a number of rescue mechanisms that help bypass DNA lesions, but which also may result in errors.

Spontaneous hydrolysis


DNA is not entirely stable in aqueous solution. Under physiological conditions the glycosidic bond may be hydrolyzed spontaneously and 10,000 purine sites in DNA are estimated to be depurinated each day in a cell.[15] Numerous DNA repair pathway exist for the DNA, however, if the apurinic site failed to be repaired, misincorporation of nucleotide may occur during replication. Adenine is preferentially incorporated by DNA polymerases in an apurinic site.


Cytidine may also become deaminated to uridine at one five-hundredth of the rate of depurination and can result in G to A transition. Eukaryotic cells also contains 5-methylcytosine, thought to be involved in the control of gene transcription, which can become deaminated into thymine.

Modification of bases
Bases may be modified endogenously by normal cellular molecules. For example DNA may be methylated by S-adenosylmethionine, and glycosylated by reducing sugars.
Many compounds, such as PAHs, aromatic amines, aflatoxin and pyrrolizidine alkaloids, may form reactive oxygen species catalyzed by cytochrome P450. These metabolites form adducts with the DNA, which can cause errors in replication, and the bulky aromatic adducts may form stable intercalation between bases and block replication. The adducts may also induce conformational changes in the DNA. Some adducts may also result in the depurination of the DNA,[17] it is however uncertain how significant such depurination as caused by the adducts is in generating mutation.[18]
Ionizing radiations and reactive oxygen species often oxidize guanine to produce 8-oxoguanine.

Crosslinking

Some alkylating agents may produce crosslinking of DNA. Some natural occurring chemicals may also promotes crosslinking, such as psoralens after activation by UV radiation, and nitrous acid. Interstrand cross-linking is more damaging as it blocks replication and transcription and can cause chromosomal breakages and rearrangements. Some crosslinkers such as cyclophosphamide, mitomycin C and cisplatin are used as anticancer chemotherapeutic because their high degree of toxicity to proliferating cells.

Dimerization


UV radiation promotes the formation of a cyclobutyl ring between adjacent thymines, resulting in the formation of pyrimidine dimers.[21] In human skin cells, thousands of dimers may be formed in a day due to normal exposure to sunlight. DNA polymerase η may help bypass these lesions in an error-free manner;[22] however, individuals with defective DNA repair function, such as sufferers of Xeroderma pigmentosum, are sensitive to sunlight and may be prone to skin cancer.
Ethidium intercalated between two adenine-thymine base pairs.
Intercalation between bases
The planar structure of chemicals such as ethidium bromide and proflavine allows them to insert between bases in DNA. This insert causes the DNA’s backbone to stretch and makes slippage in DNA during replication more likely to occur since the bonding between the strands is made less stable by the stretching. Forward slippage will result in deletion mutation, while reverse slippage will result in an insertion mutation. Also, the intercalation into DNA of anthracyclines such as daunorubicin and doxorubicin interferes with the functioning of the enzyme topoisomerase II, by tightening the DNA’s strands by the stretching, making replication as well as causing mitotic homologous recombination.
Small blue arrows in picture above indicates chromosomal breakages due to DNA damage (this is what radiation does to genes, whether that radiation comes from X rays, cancer radiation or nuclear power plant radiation via Tritium, etc.)
Backbone DNA Damage Caused By Radiation
Ionizing radiations may produce highly reactive free radicals that can break the bonds in the DNA. Double-stranded breakages are especially damaging and hard to repair, producing translocation and deletion of part of a chromosomes.
(Once the chromosomes are broken, they replicate this way, FOREVER, into future generations. This means that any radiation causing damage to ANY generation is then passed on to infinite future generations. This is the danger with nuclear radiation and power plant emissions happening worldwide, day after day.. the genetic damage keeps accumulating and is passed on in a negative downward spiral, forever and ever.)

Alkylating agents like mustard gas may also cause breakages in the DNA backbone. Oxidative stress may also generate highly reactive oxygen species that can damage the DNA. Incorrect repair of other damages induced by the highly reactive species can also lead to mutations.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutagenesis


Many nuclear apologists and other supposed experts still believe and announce to anyone that will listen to them, that genetic damage and chromosome changes somehow are not carried forward into future generations. 


The genetic effects on humans has been studied for three generations around Chernobyl, since many hundreds of thousands of people are still living in radiation contaminated areas. Studies performed on populations living in Kyshtym and Semiplatinsk in the old USSR have confirmed other genetic studies, with links below. 

These studies, like others, show that the first generation has damage done to sperm, eggs, which then gets passed on to the next generation either in the form of birth defects, one of 2,500 genetic diseases, or genetic damage that is carried recessively. 

The second generation is also damaged, just like the first generation, from the same radiation. However, things get worse for the second generation because the damage is compounded by the damage passed through from the FIRST generation, so the two types of damage are added together. The second generation has worse health outcomes and more diseases, worse death rates and more infertility than the first generation. 

The third generation has to add the genetic/chromosome damage from the first two generations and then endure or suffer from the damages caused directly from the radiation to the third generation. The accumulated damage adds up to a heavy burden on health in all ways; physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. 

In areas around the radiation contaminated Belarus, the percentage of infants born healthy has been steadily going DOWN, and is now in the single digits. However, doctors commonly blame the mothers for ‘infections’ and lack of humor for those problems. The 90% negative health of infants at birth in Belarus is almost never found to be the fault of radiation, but somehow the ‘mothers’ are at fault for not smiling enough, while they are being radiated 24 hours a day.

“The greatest threat of radioactivity to life as we know it is damage to the gene pool, the genetic make-up of all living species. Genetic damage from radiation exposure is cumulative over lifetimes and generations. Even low-dose exposures are carcinogenic after extended exposure. The current generation, the one in utero, and all that follow may suffer cancers, immune system damage, leukemias, miscarriages, stillbirths, deformities, and fertility problems. While many of these health problems are on the rise, individuals cannot prove either increase in “background” radiation or specific exposure as the cause. Only epidemiological evidence is scientifically acceptable to impute cause. Perhaps the most extreme outcome over time would be simply the wholesale cessation of the ability to reproduce. Radiation is a known cause of sterility….”

Radioactive Cobalt 60 Properties, Dangers, Half Life, Weapons Application



In the video above, viewers can watch as a Geiger Counter measures radiation from a Cobalt 60 source. Putting glass, aluminum and even lead sheets in between the Cobalt 60 and the detector makes no difference, as the Gamma radiation passes through all of them. This is what makes Gamma radiation so dangerous. It takes a very dense, very thick layer of lead (many feet thick) to stop Gamma radiation. Imagine what a particle of Gamma radiation will do INSIDE the human body, if this is the power it has OUTSIDE the human body. 

According to Wikipedia; “Cobalt-60, 60Co, is a synthetic radioactive isotope of cobalt with a half-life of 5.27 years. It is produced artificially by neutron activation of the isotope 59Co.[3] 60Co decays by beta decay to the stable isotope nickel-60 (60Ni). The activated nickel nucleus emits two gamma rays with energies of 1.17 and 1.33 MeV, hence the overall nuclear equation of the reaction is

59

27Co + n → 60

27Co → 60

28Ni + e− + gamma rays.

Corresponding to its half-life the radioactive activity of one gram of 60Co is 44 TBq (about 1100curies). The absorbed dose constant is related to the decay energy and time. For 60Co it is equal to 0.35 mSv/(GBq h) at one meter from the source. This allows calculation of the equivalent dose, which depends on distance and activity.

Activity

Example: a 60Co source with an activity of 2.8 GBq, which is equivalent to 60 µg of pure 60Co, generates a dose of 1 mSv in one meter distance within one hour. The swallowing of 60Co reduces the distance to a few millimeters, and the same dose is achieved within seconds. (Inhaling or ingesting ANY radioactive materials makes them MUCH MORE DANGEROUS and increases the speed of a LETHAL or cancer causing dose, with even small particles that would not be lethal if exterior to the body.)

The high γ-energies result in a significant mass difference between 60Ni and 60Co of 0.003 u. The short lifetime contributes further to the high decay energy. This amounts to nearly 20 watts per gram, nearly 30 times larger than that of 238Pu.


Decay

decay scheme of 60Co and 60mCo.

The diagram shows a (simplified) decay scheme of 60Co and 60mCo. The main β-decay transitions are shown. The probability for population of the middle energy level of 2.1 MeV by β-decay is 0.0022%, with a maximum energy of 665.26 keV. Energy transfers between the three levels generate six different gamma-ray frequencies.[4] In the diagram the two important ones are marked. 

Weapons Application

Car scanning using Co-60 gamma-ray device.
Cobalt has been discussed as a “salting” element to add to nuclear weapons, to produce a cobalt bomb, an extremely “dirty” weapon which would contaminate large areas with 60Co nuclear fallout, rendering them uninhabitable. In one hypothetical design, the tamper of the weapon would be made of 59Co. When the bomb exploded, the excess neutrons from the nuclear fission would irradiate the cobalt and transmute it into 60Co. No nation is known to have done any serious development of this type of weapon.

(For more information about the dangers of Cobalt 60 in ‘dirty’ bombs, and the horrors of having a substance like this out in the world, easily available to ANYONE who really wants it, via food irradiation plants, and testing devices such as the one shown above, click on the following link)… http://youtu.be/pkoEwZtemnc?t=1m39s

Occurrence

There is no natural 60Co in existence; thus, synthetic 60Co is created by bombarding a 59Co target with a slow neutron source, usually californium-252 moderated through water to slow the neutrons down, or in a nuclear reactor such as a CANDU reactor, where the control rods usually made of steel are instead made of 59Co [10]59Co + n → 60Co


Safety

After entering a living human ( in food, air or water), some of the 60Co is excreted in feces. The remainder is taken up by tissues, mainly the liver, kidneys, and bones, where the prolonged exposure to gamma radiation can cause bone, liver, kidney or other cancers. Over time, some of the absorbed radioactive cobalt is eliminated in urine.[7]

Cobalt is an element of steel alloys. Uncontrolled disposal of 60Co in scrap metal is responsible for the radioactivity found in several iron-based products.[11][12] (This happens more often than you think)
In the above video an incident involving radioactive cobalt is discussed in India.

In 2000, a disused radiotherapy head containing a 60Co source was stored at an unsecured location in Bangkok, Thailand and then accidentally was sold to scrap collectors. Unaware of the dangers, a junkyard employee dismantled the head and extracted the source, which remained unprotected for a period of days at the junkyard. Ten people, including the scrap collectors and workers at the junkyard, were exposed to high levels of radiation and became ill. Three of the junkyard workers subsequently died as a result of their exposure, which was estimated to be over 6 Gy. The source was safely recovered by the Thai authorities.[13]

This does not happen just in foreign countries. It also happens in the USA. In August, 2012, Petco recalled several models of steel pet food bowls after US Customs and Border Protection determined that they were emitting low levels of radiation. The source of the radiation was determined to be 60Co that had contaminated the steel.[14] Many other incidents like this have happened in the USA, but there is no one tracking these, or monitoring where radioactive substances go that are sold for scrap.

Food and other items are often irradiated with Cobalt 60. These food items are often NOT LABELED. Here is how the radiation of foods and other items works… The item is sent into a chamber where Cobalt 60 is then exposed to it, killing all bacteria on or in the food item. 

The problem with this technique is that it also destroys beneficial organisms, co factors, vitamins and more. Radiation also produces free radicals, which are the cause of many diseases.

Savannah River Site; Most Severely Radiation Polluted Place on Earth?

According to the article; Human Health Problems at Two of the Most Polluted Places on Earth, the Savannah River Site in South Carolina is an 802 square kilometer complex that has been severely polluted by five decades of Nuclear Weapons production. It is now rated as one of the top ten most polluted and toxic places on the planet.

Top ten most radioactive places on earth 
Ten most toxic places on Earth  

“Up to 100 million curies of tritium were released from over the decades, contaminating the region’s drinking water. 490 million Curies of liquid high level radioactive Y-/vats are stored in underground tanks. [7] Near the Savannah River Site, the death rate is 19.8% above normal, largely from heart disease and cancer; both are associated with ionizing radiation.”
http://www.un.org/en/conf/npt/2005/statements/nptngo-Zeller.pdf

According to the video source description above “at the Savannah River Department of Energy site near Aiken, South Carolina, USA, a 300-square-mile complex of streams, ponds, nuclear reactors, reprocessing units and barbed wire in the pine woods on the South Carolina-Georgia border, everything from the deer and ducks to the collard greens shows traces of radiation.

Swimming through the ponds into which the Energy Department has dumped billions of gallons of contaminated water over a period of 30 years are turtles, which absorb radioactive tritium, strontium and cesium in their shells and flesh. The radioactivity will outlive the turtle by decades. What about other animals that use these contaminated ponds for drinking water?

William H. Lawless, once a senior project engineer in radioactive waste management at the Department of Energy, wrote in The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists in 1985 that pond-slider turtles with radioactive strontium levels up to 1,000 times the natural background had been found more than half a mile from the plant border, at a commercial hog farm. To control the problem, fences have been erected to keep turtles from wandering through the most polluted areas and then off the site. (Radioactive animals daring to wander off the site is a problem at Hanford as well. Accidents are common at all recycling plants like this one. Here is an example of another plant just like this one in Japan.)

In 1950 the Atomic Energy Commission designated the location for the atomic weapons complex which was then called the Savannah River Plant. Within five years, the basic facilities were in operation and plutonium metal and tritium gas were being produced and delivered for atomic weapons. The principal construction and operations contractor was E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company which continued as such until Westinghouse took the reins in 1989.

Knowing all of this, does it make sense to build a MOX plant using weapons-grade plutonium at this S. Carolina site with ominous looking reactors — This plant is also located on top of region’s most dangerous earthquake fault line (PHOTOS AND VIDEO)

According to the DC News “NNSA’s nonproliferation and energy solution is Mixed Oxide Fuel (MOX). With little more than a theory, the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations accepted an unproven idea and committed billions of taxpayer money to building an enormous plant to take surplus plutonium from weapons and civilian programs from around the world, grind it into a fine powder and turn it into a very dangerous, toxic, radioactive and highly volatile fuel array for civilian nuclear power reactors. Some experts say this process is more dangerous than stabilizing and burying the excess plutonium.

MOX production facility


The Fukushima crisis should be teaching humanity a great lesson; nuclear weapons, nuclear power plants and humans do not mix well on the same planet. 

The earthquakes, hurricanes and tsunamis that happen on a regular basis knock out the cooling systems, and then these plants melt down and/or explode,  releasing enough radiation just from the spent fuel pools in worst case scenarios, to kill everyone on the planet. Here is just the latest example. With each huge earthquake or tsunami, more nuclear facilities will get knocked out, quite possibly with much WORSE consequences.

At the Savannah River Site, “working with its huge and politically-connected contractors, NNSA uses an old, tired Atoms-For-Peace argument: It will solve the country’s energy problems by taking excess warhead material and converting it to reactor fuel for “peaceful” purposes. Former Obama White House Senior Advisor David Axelrod coined the phrase – nuclear power is the “bridge to our energy future” – when his company worked for Exelon, a Chicago-based utility that is the largest nuclear operator in the United States. NNSA says its MOX fuel will provide an abundant, on-demand, carbon-free power supply. Some powerful environmental groups like the Natural Resources Defense Council became convinced that a new generation of nuclear reactors could be a sensible alternative to coal-fired plants. “
http://www.dcbureau.org/201109126200/national-security-news-service/the-bomb-plant.html

According to the National Security News Service; “tons of weapons grade plutonium and other nuclear materials, a target for terrorists, are not being properly protected by the National Nuclear Security Administration at the Department of Energy’s sprawling Savannah River Site. A secret security review underway at DOE and other government agencies after an elderly nun last summer breached a NNSA bomb-grade-uranium facility at the Oak Ridge Tennessee Y12 area reveals “harrowing problems in site management and control at other DOE sites,” said a Homeland Security official who requested anonymity. The official said that the Savannah River Site was of concern because “SRS does not have the staffing or the facilities to protect the huge amounts of plutonium that have been brought to SRS in recent years.” There is enough weapons grade plutonium to destroy the world multiple times at this site.”
There are many security concerns around this site, explored in the above video.. If an 80 year old nun and two other people can get right up to a building housing tons of plutonium and spray it with paint, what would happen if a bunch of determined terrorists did this at the Savannah River Site?

The mass media does not like to talk about it, but terrorists have taken over a nuclear power plant already…

Atucha Nuclear Reactor Taken Over By Terrorists; via A Green Road

The Savannah River Site plant has numerous steel tanks (49) containing 36 BILLION gallons of toxic, radioactive liquids. No one knows what to do with it. No one seems to care. Meanwhile, these 46 ordinary steel tanks with highly radioactive liquids in them are rusting and corroding away.. At Hanford, many of these types of metal tanks have rusted through, and the highly toxic extremely radioactive liquid is now moving underground towards the Columbia River that supplies drinking water for MILLIONS of people. Find out more about  disaster that is potentially awaiting all of the cities downstream of Hanford in this article…

Hanford; Lethal And Leaking; A Race To Armageddon?  via A Green Road http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/03/hanford-lethal-and-leaking-race-to.html

The concept of a reprocessing or recyling plant is that plutonium can be used for fuel in the form of MOX, or mixed oxide fuel. However, in practice, this fuel is proving to be FAR more dangerous and FAR more toxic when it is involved in an accident, than the plain uranium based fuels that reactors normally run on. The Fukushima accident and explosion is one example of how badly this fuel reacts during an accident..

“Savannah River MOX report 6 months overdue to Congress”

“The concept of mixing plutonium with traditional uranium oxide reactor fuel is part of an international nonproliferation plan. The plutonium to be used at the MOX plant comes from dismantled warheads, and its conversion to commercial fuel prevents its use in nuclear weapons.”
“On April 7, 1977, President Jimmy Carter banned the reprocessing of commercial reactor spent nuclear fuel in the USA. The key issue driving this policy was the serious threat of nuclear weapons proliferation by diversion of plutonium from the civilian fuel cycle, and to encourage other nations to follow the USA lead.” 
President Carter recognized that the non-proliferation theory is a deception. The DOE wants to sell plutonium, not figure out how to store it safely for eons of time. NO ONE wants ANYTHING radioactive in their backyard. Also, these plants emit more radiation EVERY YEAR, than the TMI accident from beginning to end.

President Obama wants to start up this supposedly green ‘recycling’ facility. Would that have anything to do with Exelon contributing huge amounts of money to his campaign? “Obama’s dirtiest, deadly secret exposed: Plutonium ‘Bomb Plant,’ ‘Green future’”

“Obama and Works of Death”

Fukushima Decommissioning Working Conditions Deteriorating

In the video above, NHK reports how worker pay at Fukushima is reducing. TEPCO used to pay for the hotel and living costs, but no longer does that. 

There are 28 firms that subcontract for decommissioning work. The amount of work is declining. The competitive bidding is being used to reduce prices overall. This makes it harder to attract and keep workers. Pay has declined about 30% since the beginning of this year. It is becoming harder and harder to attract workers who are willing to face high radiation, poor working conditions and poor pay. 

One firm that subcontracts for Fukushima has not been able to find a single worker since the accident, and they handle instrumentation for nuclear power plants. 

More than 20,000 workers have spent time at Fukushima up to November 2012. It takes about 3 months to reach the safety limit for radiation, which means the worker has to leave. So every 3 months, 100% of all workers should be turning over, if they follow safety protocols. 

TEPCO said that it has enough workers, but NHK found out that the opposite was actually true. The number of registered workers required is 11,000 per year to decommission the plant complex. 

The amount of work to be done at the plant is increasing, not decreasing. Up to today, a total of 900 large steel water tanks have been set up on the grounds of the plant to store highly radioactive concentrated water. 

Workers must build, fill and maintain these tanks in a leak free condition. Multiply 900 tanks times 20, and the total required over 40 years will be 18,000. Experts say it may take 100 years to handle this crisis. Multiply 18,000 tanks x 3 and one would need 58,000 tanks on site, a sheer impossibility. They are already running out of room to put ‘temporary’ metal storage tanks. 

Are these temporary metal above ground water tanks earthquake proof, terrorist resistant and how long will they last? What is the LONG TERM plan to handle all of this radiation being stored temporarily? What happens when these metal tanks start leaking due to rust, even if there is no earthquake for 40 years?

Filtering equipment must be set up and operated. Miles of temporary pipes, pumps, insulation and fittings must be installed and maintained or fixed when they leak. Last winter, this Rube Golberg system of plastic pipes sprung up to 60 leaks at a time.  No one knows how much of this highly radioactive water ‘leaked’ into the ocean. 

Basement water containing highly radioactive water must be pumped out on a constant basis, as more underground water leaks into the basements constantly through cracks and fissures. 

The strategy at Fukushima seems to be to do as little as possible,  with as few workers as possible, while covering up the real problems, and not asking for any help. By comparison, when  just 1 reactor at Chernobyl melted down, over 1 million workers were employed to try and handle that crisis and prevent 1 corium from hitting groundwater. 

In Japan, despite Fukushima being 10 times worse and having 3 nuclear reactors melt down and through, (with 3 ACTIVE coriums now going down into the ground) only 6,000 people are employed to try and ‘handle’ this, by minimizing what is going on. This disaster is still ongoing, despite claims by TEPCO that Fukushima is in ‘cold shutdown’.

Is this the way to handle toxic waste and nuclear disaster that can STILL destroy all life on the planet if it goes out of control? Many experts have said that if the spent fuel pool at reactor building number 4 falls over due to an earthquake, it could create a global life extinguishing event. 

Fukushima Reactor 4; Global Life Extinction Event If It Collapses; viaA Green Road
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/04/fukushima-reactor-4-life-extinction.html


TEPCO says that it needs 3,000 workers per day to do everything that needs to be done to ‘decommission’ the plant. It has also reported that it needed 18,000 workers per year total. TEPCO claims that it has secured 24,000 workers, making it seem like it has a waiting list of people WANTING to work at Fukushima, but they cannot work at this paradise, because they have plenty of people already. They seem to possibly be putting out the PR that they are turning workers away, and that this is a very desirable place to work.

However, when one looks deeper into this number, TEPCO is using the total number of workers who have been at the plant since the human caused disaster happened, not the number of people wanting to work there TODAY. Just about like everything else this company reports, the opposite of what they report is actually the reality. 

Over 16,000 of those that TEPCO claimed as active workers have quit and taken their names off of the ‘official’ worker registry list. These 16,000 workers are no longer available to work at the plant. 

Taking 24,000 and subtracting 16,000, one ends up with only 6,000 workers total available. This 6,000 worker supply number is only a two month labor supply, if they truly do rotate workers in a safe manner. Why are they having such a hard time recruiting workers?  Credible reports say that they have not recruited a single worker lately. 

If TEPCO is not aware of how many workers they actually have, what are the odds that they will continue to have enough workers for the next 40 – 100 years, which they admit is how long it will take (at a minimum) to ‘decommission’ the toxic waste dump that is now the Fukushima complex of buildings, spent fuel pools and reactors. Some experts say it will take at least 100 years or longer, assuming everything goes right, but that is still not dealing with the melted coriums, which went underground. 

No one is talking about this subject, because multiple melted out coriums are too terrible to even consider the implications and consequences of. Here is a little dive into this side of things, for those interested…

Considering that Japan has sixty nuclear power plants, all of which have to be decommissioned, where is all of the labor required to do this going to come from, if each one of them takes 40 years to decommission? 

Finally, where is the money going to come from? Who is going to check workers health after they leave the plant due to maximum radiation doses received? Who is going to pay for the health costs for workers who get sick or die of radiation caused diseases or cancers later on? So far, these questions have not been answered. 

Fukushima Crisis Total Cost $1-$10 TRILLION Dollars; via A Green Road
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/06/fukushima-crisis-total-cost-up-to-10.html

The two possible ways to raise money is to raise the cost of electric power supplied to consumers, and prevent them from switching to cheaper renewable sources of energy, through a monopoly control that most nuclear powered utilities have in place these days. 

The utilities have already raised the price of electricity in Japan to cover some of the costs of this disaster. But this radical increase in electricity cost is still NOT enough to pay for the cleanup and ‘decommissioning’. Eventually, the taxpayers will have to pony up  more and more and pay for everything, as they do for every nuclear disaster. 

These monopolies consistently seem to push their risk and costs of disasters that they cause off onto taxpayers, but they manage to keep all of the profits and bonuses, plus golden parachutes. Somehow, the 1% that keep pushing these disasters in the making on the 99% almost never seem to be brought to justice for anything they do wrong either.

NHK looked at the overall view from above and projected out long term. But let’s look at what is actually happening inside the plant, contrary to what the company and government say…


This mother in the video above is saying that a worker is at the plant, working there despite passing ‘bloody urine’. She is claiming that many other workers are in a similar situation and poor health condition. To get to this point of passing bloody urine, a worker would have to continue working PAST the point of radiation safety, established by the company and government. So how would this happen? 

The following video may explain how this happens and why it much more common that people believe…


Workers are interviewed in the video above and say that the working conditions are depressing. Workers are sworn to secrecy, and must sign statements that they will NEVER speak to media. 

There are HUGE cracks in the ground all over the plant, which workers can fall into and die. (NHK does not mention the three coriums that are underground, spewing radioactive steam and smoke out of a few of these huge cracks in the ground). 

Radioactive Smoke/Steam Coming Out Of Ground At Fukushima2.28.2012; via A Green Road
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/02/tokyo-alert-severe-radioactive-smoke.html
Workers like the one above say it is impossible to maintain safety standards. Workers say they got 30 minutes of safety instruction, before going to work. No one knows anything about radiation. Masks are taken off to smoke, and to talk with each other. This means that radioactive particles are inhaled. Only one  inhaled particle of plutonium can cause lung or other cancer. 


Many workers ditch their personal radiation monitors, because they are so desperate for money, that they want to work as long as possible, even if it means death in five years from cancer. Many of the workers are this desperate, because there is no other work around this area, due to the mass exodus of jobs from this area, due to the Fukushima disaster.  Most families, jobs and farms are gone, thus there is no work and no economic activity, all due to the nuclear accident. 

Because they are so desperate for work, when workers go into dangerous areas, they leave their radiation monitors behind, so that they can work longer than they normally would be allowed to. The company and subcontractor both turn a blind eye, because they face problems getting workers to even come out to the most dangerous place to work IN THE WORLD. 

Other stories have come out about how dosimeters are covered with lead shields, or put in places where the dosage measured will be less. 

There are radioactive water leaks all over the plant. Radioactive water leaks happen from pipes, fittings, etc. Leaks are often understated or ignored. When leaks happen, they are cleaned up by workers, who are exposed to high radiation in the process.
http://enenews.com/japan-times-more-leaks-found-at-fukushima-water-spews-from-16-points-amount-leaking-at-some-facilities-not-revealed

One worker said that the most everyone working at Fukushima is committing suicide. These workers are trying to keep their total dose under a certain dose, but there is almost no protection against radiation with the equipment that they are given. 



Workers interviewed by a German journalist in the video below told about how radioactive hot spots exist all over the plant site that cause the dosimeters to read ERROR, which means that they stop working becuase the radiation is too high to measure. The radiation has to be higher than 10 Sieverts to make the dosimeter cause an ERROR reading like this. An expert in the video reports that 7-8 Sieverts is an absolutely FATAL dose. 

No one tells the workers where these hot radiation spot areas are, and none of these areas are taped off or signs put up to warn workers where they are. 


To get a ‘danger bonus’ pay award that slight increases their pay, workers all sign a secrecy agreement, promising to never talk about the work they do, to ANYONE. Why is this necessary, if there is nothing to hide and nothing bad happening there? 

In the following article, it explains that the World Health Organization (WHO) found that close to 200 Fukushima workers had high radiation doses in their thyroids, with two workers testing over 10 Sieverts of radiation INTERNALLY.  A 10 Sievert dose of radiation is FATAL. Did they test any other workers? How did they test for this radiation? Did they test ONLY the thyroids, or did they test the whole body burden of radiation contamination? It does not make sense that only the thyroids get high or fatal doses of radiation, but nothing else in the body was touched or affected negatively. That is not how radiation works. 

http://enenews.com/who-fukushima-workers-had-radiation-dose-over-10-sieverts-in-their-thyroids

What is the reason for this extreme secrecy, where workers cannot even show their faces or be interviewed legally at all? This level of secrecy is normally only for top secret military installations or a CIA kind of operations, where people are being assassinated or governments are being overthrown. 

How and why does the nuclear industry deceive workers, governments, and the public? Here are the 30 ways that the ‘official’ training manual provides to PR workers; how to lie, deny, minimize and deceive. But all of this is nothing new. It is purely a repeat of what happened in other nuclear accidents all around the world. Let’s take a look at just ONE of these other accidents where the same thing happened to workers. Over 1 million workers were sacrificed after the Chernobyl accident. The following links go into depth about this ONE accident, and what happened to the workers.

http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/03/battle-of-chernobyl-movie.html

Bottom line, for Chernobyl the IAEA (which is nothing more than a glorified marketing arm of the nuclear industry) said that 350,000 workers got an ‘average’ of 100 millisieverts of radiation total. This is a wonderful way to hide the truth.  Where are the dosimeters that they used to measure this dosage? What kind of dosimeters were used?  Did they measure INTERNAL radiation and total body burden or just dosimeter readings, which do not include internal radiation coming in with food, air and water. 


This ‘average’ radiation figure included EVERYONE involved in the cleanup. If you count enough (off site) workers, you can cut radiation dosages by 50% easily. Shield dosimeters behind sheets of lead, and you can cut dosages by 90% or more. (Most cleanup workers at Chernobyl did this.) Use computer models that ‘simulate’ dosages instead of using actual real life Geiger Counters, and you can cut that total dosage by another 90% through fancy algorithms and minimized radiation data, which is consistently the way that the nuclear industry plays this game. 

The pro nuclear apologists who always minimize and deny radiation damages almost always use ‘computer models’, rather than actual radiation meter readings, or internal radiation measurements. 

Dead workers a problem? Just transport them away from the accident and get a nuclear industry friendly doc to sign a death certificate that claims it had nothing to do with radiation. Presto; there was no death from radiation contamination, despite the fact that the worker was buried in a lead lined casket. Thus the industry can proudly proclaim to all the world, “SEE – no deaths due to radiation!” All workers on site died from ‘pre-existing conditions’, even if they had no health condition going into this or that accident. 

Workers getting cancer and/or dying from multiple causes? Get them off site, fire them, or lay them off.. Now they are not recorded as casualties, and deserve no compensation either. No follow up health studies, no follow up health support, subject closed. No one was harmed. Presto, the nuclear industry washed it’s hands of all harm, without lifting a finger. 

Almost all low level high radiation exposed workers are employed by subcontractors where longer term health record keeping is commonly shoddy, incomplete, or non existent. 

No one cares if a few thousand homeless or poor people get cancer later and die. Almost no one tracks the health of radiation cleanup workers once they leave the ‘hot’ cleanup site, for ANY reason. 

Fox News did a report recently where they found that Japan is failing to do health checks on workers, and especially on ex-workers. If no health records are kept, it is impossible to prove harm due to radiation damage, of course. 


The Yakuzi (Japanese Mafia) typically hire the homeless and the desperate off the street, because they have no means to complain later or to raise a fuss because they have ZERO connections to the world. A former TEPCO executive has reported that the company has always known that they were working with the mafia when it supplied workers to them.  http://enenews.com/former-tepco-executives-say-company-has-always-known-they-were-working-with-yakuza

According to a recent TEPCO survey, 50% of Fukushima workers may be illegally contracted; “according to the survey, 47.9 pct of such workers said that the companies directing them on-site at Fukushima Daiichi were different from those that paid their wages. These findings may be indications that subcontracting companies may be disguising subcontracts in violation of the employment security law….36% of such workers had not been given written or verbal explanations about their employment terms although the labor standard law requires employers to issue documents setting out employment terms…”


But the deceptions do not end at the workers cleaning up at Fukushima, Chernobyl or other nuclear disaster sites. The whole industry is built on lies, deceptions and fraud. They even have a playbook that they use to train their PR people. They train them in 30 ways to lie to the public and mass media, in addition to schools, colleges and politicians, in order to get their money and keep their power. 


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

One of the most dangerous lies of all is that radiation is not dangerous. For example, the chief medical doctor for all hospitals and medical centers and who is in charge of radiation reporting and health measurement for the nuclear industry in Japan, reports that people can safely be exposed in towns around the ruined plant to 100 micro Sieverts per HOUR, as long as they keep smiling and do not worry. If they keep smiling, the radiation will not hurt them.

Fukushima prefecture health adviser (Shunichi Yamashita, MD, PhD. Dean. Nagasaki University Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences): Those who smile will have no radiation damage, only those who make constant worry. Less than 100 MICROsieverts per HOUR is no danger to health, or 876 millisievert per year is OK. — over double Germany’s 400 millisievert LIFETIME exposure limit for nuclear industry workers.

http://enenews.com/worried-well-no-health-danger-from-876-millisieverts-a-year-its-the-duty-of-scientific-community-to-reduce-fear-anxiety-video

The medical industry and medical professionals globally seem to be intent on selling the whole world on the safety of nuclear power. Medical experts in Japan are telling parents that close to 1,000 millisieverts PER YEAR of radiation is ‘safe’, and that kids can play in these highly radioactive contaminated areas, without any risk or harm. http://enenews.com/lecturer-tokyo-radiation-not-so-serious-let-kids-play-outside-just-gargle-wash-hands-etc


The only problem with this pro nuclear apologist claim is that in a ‘normal’ situation such as here in the USA, nuclear power plant workers are allowed a MUCH HIGHER DOSE of radiation compared to civilians. Nuclear industry workers are only allowed a maximum dose of 400 millisieverts for a WHOLE LIFETIME. 

What the chief medical doctor in Japan is suggesting, is that civilians are safe if they get this 400 millisieverts radiation dose every six months, and over 800 millisieverts EACH YEAR. This makes absolutely no sense, but in the world of the pro nuclear apologists, where all doses of radiation is safe and good for you, as long as you keep smiling, it makes total sense.   

Isn’t what the medical profession seems to be doing is to cover up the dangers of radiation in the same way as medical experiments being done on people without permission? 

In the case of Fukushima, where the government and nuclear industry are saying everything is now back to ‘normal’ and all is ‘safe’, they are experimenting on millions of people, and all of the workers who come to Fukushima to labor in the most dangerous, most toxic, most radiation contaminated place on the planet.  And this is not the first time radiation experiments have been done on people without their permission…. This is just the TIP of a very huge iceberg.

Bottom line, the whole Fukushima crisis is not at an end. It is only beginning, and is in some ways getting worse. Most of the worst parts of this accident have been covered up. Workers at Fukushima may very well be viewed as sacrificial lambs  worshipping at the alter of nuclear power, to be sacrificed in much the same way as people had their hearts cut out on ancient temple grounds, in order to appease the Gods.

To claim that Fukushima is in ‘cold shutdown’ is criminal. To say that they are ‘decommissioning’ it is fraudulent, because there are active coriums still burning out of control underground. To get workers in there that are desperate and starving, willing to commit suicide, and then swear them to secrecy, is shocking. 

But then again, what would you expect from this monopoly that will do just about anything to maintain their hold on taxpayer money and power?

Fukushima Radiation: NHK Documentary: "Their Fate In Their Hands"

NHK Documentary March to Recovery
Voices from 3.11
Their Fate in Their Hands 
Miharu, Fukushima Prefecture

One year has passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake. Reconstruction initiatives are underway in many places, including the disaster-stricken areas. March to Recovery shows how the nation is trying to recover from the unprecedented disaster.

The movie goes into the dilemma over how and when to distribute and order the taking of iodine pills to Miharu residents, affected by radioactive fallout in March of 2011, from the Fukushima Daichi nuclear disaster.

National government, nuclear industry representatives and national health officials kept telling civilians to NOT take iodine tablets that protect somewhat against radiation or to send them back to headquarters, because they were NOT needed, due to no radiation being released.

Civilians took the iodine pills anyway on the advice of local community based  government leaders, who ignored or actively fought the national/regional health officials and nuclear company advice and experts. It turned out that the exact day that they decided to take these iodine tablets, that the highest radiation readings were recorded, but no one was informed about this at the time. 

Despite knowing that the worst radiation was coming out of Fukushima Daichi, TEPCO, national government officials and national health experts all kept denying permission for civilians to take iodine tablets, despite the fact that they had been handed out already, and would have protected civilians from some or most of the radioactive Iodine coming out of Fukushima Daichi. 

This is also a story about how some people pay more attention to ‘authorities’ than to their own gut feeling or common sense. The movie explores in detail how national ‘experts’ argued with local community officials, trying to get them to NOT have any civilians take iodine, or to send the iodine back to ‘headquarters’, because no radiation danger existed. 

This movie also explains in great detail how little health ‘experts’, including doctors and nurses, know about nuclear accidents, iodine tablets used to prevent damage to thyroid, and low level radiation dangers. 

The level of ignorance and denial of any harm from radiation is explored ONLY for iodine in this video, but it also explains the general gross incompetence or ignorance of medical professionals around this subject generally, by extension. 

Most doctors and nurses receive little or NO information or training around nuclear accidents, low level radiation, or internal radiation harm caused by radioactive substances. This movie shows how local health nurses and doctors had to consult ‘experts’ about how to administer the iodine, because they did not know anything about it. 

When the head of emergency response agency and local doctors and nurses do not know anything about radiation, iodine treatment, and/or nuclear accidents, (as shown in this movie) it also explains how deeply in denial the whole society is, with encouragement by the nuclear industry. 

The nuclear industry does not want anyone to explain, inform or have anyone get ready for nuclear disaster, because then people would actually be informed about the dangers. Obviously, the nuclear industry does NOT want ANYONE to know how dangerous nuclear power plants are, and what the effects of low level radiation are on human beings. 

This movie applies universally to ANY COUNTRY with nuclear plants. The same confusion, chaos, and fear is going to be present after any nuclear accident anywhere. 

There is little to no preparation for any nuclear accident in ANY town, no matter where it is in the world. This fact is proven by the loss of all monitoring equipment at Fukushima Daichi. The power company said that the monitors needed power to work. Why would these power plants not have a battery backup system for all radiation monitors? Why would they not have a tie in to these radiation monitors directly to towns which could be affected negatively by any accidents, so they would not have to rely on company ‘experts’ who also did not know anything, because the monitors had ‘failed’? 

Again, this points to a universally applied coverup and secrecy aspect of the nuclear industry, particularly around EVERY ACCIDENT. NONE of these nuclear accidents seem to be monitored by accurate radiation meters. These monitors all seem to fail, not have power, or be installed in the wrong place. Then there are no portable or battery power monitors available either, for some strange reason, and there is NEVER a backup plan in place either, for civilians with emergency planning or disaster management agencies to monitor or report REAL RADIATION READINGS, as they happen minute by minute.  

Because all evacuation orders are based on accurate radiation readings on radiation meters, no evacuation can be ordered, if the meters stop working. Essentially, the nuclear industry position by default about how they set up these emergency responses is that all civilians are expendable, because just about every time an accident happens, most or all radiation monitoring equipment fails, as it did at Fukushima Daichi. 

Universally, when monitors are supposedly not working anymore, computer models based on ‘estimates’ are used, and these estimates are universally too low by orders of magnitude and length of time, in all accidents. This minimization of radiation releases, sometimes even denying ANYTHING harmful is being released, is universally true, because the industry and power company does not want to look bad. So they lie, deceive, minimize, and cover up what is going on. This happened at Fukushima, where it took months to get minimized information somewhat adjusted, but still not to realistic levels.  

The effect of this cover up and/or denial of harmful radiation releases after any nuclear accident is that many people are exposed to high levels of radiation, needlessly. It also prevents people from moving out of harm’s way, because they assume that everything is normal, because this is what is generally broadcast on the news.  This movie explores this concept of insufficient emergency response to nuclear accidents in some small measure. 
Civilians in the movie explain that no radiation reports or warnings from government or industry came out despite the Fukushima buildings exploding and clearly releasing radiation in great quantities, in ways that were not being filtered or controlled. 
Radioactive emissions figures did not come out for months.. Radioactive iodine emissions did spike at one point, but no one was warned on Marth 15th and 16th, when the radioactive emissions were the worst. 
The bottom line lessons that can be learned even from this movie is that you cannot trust national or even regional ‘experts’ in the nuclear industry, the government, or even emergency management agencies. 
All you are left with is local government, local civilians, and local health experts. If they do not have radiation measurement equipment, or knowledge of how to deal with a nuclear disaster, then much hope is lost. If local ‘authorities’ always wait to hear from national or state officials, then much local suffering will be the guaranteed result. 
If you want the best result and preparation, do not wait for anyone. Get a good Geiger Counter, and train people how to use the meter, and find out how to respond to a nuclear emergency. Where are the nearest radiation proof shelters? Who is in charge of decontamination? How will this process work? Where will ‘clean’ food and water come from in the shelter? What are safe evacuation routes?

USA – Radiation Damaged, Mutated Kitten

This is what radiation damage can look like in a cat, and this kitten is born on US soil. Since there are multiple nuclear reactors nearby, it is difficult to determine whether this damage is caused by radiation from Fukushima. This kind of damage can also be caused by ‘normal emissions’ from a nearby plant.

Tests can be done on this kitten,  humans, other animals, food and water to determine the ‘signature’ of the nuclear contaminants, which will determine with a close to 100% accuracy, where the radiation is coming from. Fukushima radiation has a particular radioactive ‘signature’, different from all other accidents, nuclear bomb tests and all other nuclear power plants.

But then again, this kitten may be suffering from nothing more than radioactive tritium, which is in the water supply around all nuclear power plants.

In 2011, the worst nuclear accident in history happened at Fukushima Daichi. Nuclear expert Gunderson describes what is happening now.. He states that highly toxic radiation continues to come out of this whole Fukushima complex which consists of numerous blown out reactors, melted down coriums, and melted down or blown up spent fuel pools. 

Kyodo News uses term ‘Hot-zone’ to describe Miyagi, Iwate and Tochigi Prefectures… not just Fukushima

Because this accident spread huge amounts of toxic, contaminating and deadly nuclear radiation in all directions, all around the world in fact, the government ordered a ban on exporting or eating of any animals, produce, fruit or rice from a wide area around Fukushima to any other area. This was a sensible thing to do, because the invisible and toxic radiation from Fukushima Daichi got into the water, the land, and the animals or people staying anywhere closer than 200 miles from the plant. 

The contamination found in animals started with just a ‘few’ animals, but quickly grew to huge numbers. The initial testing was only exterior, which did NOT measure internal radiation and was highly ineffective. (This is why they only found ‘a few’ perhaps?) 

Many highly contaminated cows were being sold as ‘safe’, when they were actually severely contaminated with radiation, and these cows were consumed by people, even school children. Even the ‘faux’ ban on exporting animals from contaminated regions was only a temporary ban however.

Japan did NOT continue widespread food testing and quality control to eliminate foods with high levels of radiation. Instead, the government lifted food bans. 

They invited everyone to come back into Fukushima province and surrounding areas, declaring the nuclear accident over and done with.  They had magically achieved ‘cold shutdown’. 



The radiation has somehow magically disappeared, and all was ‘normal’ again. Schools inside Fukushima Province (the most severely affected) were re-opened and students were invited to come back and attend schools. 

The Japanese government said in effect, that the nuclear accident NEVER HAPPENED. As a result, millions of people are still being exposed to high doses of radiation inside of the food and drinks they consume all over Japan, and around the world as well. 

The government and nuclear industry realized that if it truly banned the sale of all foods that were contaminated, and millions of people were evacuated to foreign countries, the economy of Japan would collapse. 

No seafood, no beef, no rice, no vegetables, no fruit, no fresh water fish, no beans, no herbs, no seeds, no nuts, no tea, no trees; NOTHING edible or used for construction could be sold for the next 10,000 years if they REALLY wanted to keep people safe. This accident would realistically cost Japan around 10 TRILLION Dollars, which would bankrupt even a rich nation.

This of course, could not be allowed to happen. Nor could the nuclear industry be blamed, because that would cause that very profitable industry to collapse as well, globally. 

So the mass media was used to deceive people, and to fool them into thinking nothing was wrong.

According to Gunderson, the radioactive contamination from Fukushima Daichi spread as far south as Tokyo, covering about 50% of the whole country of Japan.

MILLIONS of people would have to be evacuated and thousands of square kilometers would have to be declared uninhabitable, much more than was done around Chernobyl, if Japan did what Russia did in order to protect at least some people.

Japan is a small country in comparison to Russia. They are not able to afford this kind of shut down. Their national debt before the accident was LARGER than that of Greece which is in the news constantly about threats of it going bankrupt; and Greece has had no major nuclear accident. The nation of Japan cannot afford to put millions of people out of work and throw them out of their homes and towns permanently. So what did they do?

‘Unbelievable’: Shock over revelations that radiation contamination occurred so far away from Fukushima meltdown

The Japanese government, with the help of the nuclear industry took an official stand and declared an policy that everything and everyone is safe again. This policy of ‘normalicy’ was spread through the medical industry, the mass media, the official government channels, the nuclear industry and more. 

Radioactive food was once again being sold for local and international comsumption. Not only was radioactive food being sold locally, but it was also being EXPORTED to countries like the USA.

Japan Won’t Rule Out Possibility Radioactive Fukushima Beef Was Exported

The dangers of eating radioactive contaminated food are actively being downplayed, as the first video shows. The mass media urges people to buy, consume and drink contaminated foods and drinks. Because it is profitable, beef, rice and seafood from contaminated areas around Fukushima is being sold once again, both locally and internationally. 

After Chernobyl, strict controls were put in place in several countries, to protect the public from radiation contamination in foods. This did not happen after Fukushima. It seems that quite the opposite is happening.

Until people understand and resist what huge corporations are doing, this will most likely continue, with nuclear accidents being covered up, denied and minimized, while millions of people get sick and/or die.
