In the continuing nightmare we call Fukushima, the radiation levels are now 8 times the ‘official’ government ‘allowable’ levels! Read about it here. Does anyone think this might be a problem? I do and have been taking steps to counter what I consider to be the inevitable increases in radiation here in the U.S.
Namely, super greens, loaded with chlorella and spirulina and seagrasses from the atlantic (of course I admit to being jaded here and only use Enerfood). Eating simple, non processed foods as often as possible-definitely staying away from GM products-and exercising as often as possible, usually about 4 times per week and shooting for 6.
While iodine supplements can be a great addition to our regimen-since most people have ‘under active’ thyroids, I don’t usually recommend it since all these iodine supplements are not made equally and improper use can do more damage than good! Using a really good clean super green should get your body in condition to combat the invisible, radioactive onslaught!
I hope that everyone will enjoy a happy and prosperous year, even better than last year. I want to thank everyone that listens and supports our shows!
Unfortunately, the gravest threat to mankind continues to spew deadly radiation and now there might be evidence of actual destruction off our western shores. Mike Adams at Natural News draws and interesting connection between the incredible rise in dead fish off California and Fukushima, click here to read all about it.
There is also a report just a few hours old that reactor number 3 is spewing radioactive steam into the atmosphere again. Of course, the highly radioactive water is still running from these reactors as well. Click here to read about this one.
I pray that this insanity will cease and quickly. Someone must take charge of this crisis, and leaving it to the Japanese appears to be pretty useless. They are incompetent and refuse to recognize the gravity of this situation.
Arnie Gundersen is perhaps the ‘lone voice’ in the wilderness that is Main Stream Media! The chart in the link I am providing here shows the release of radioactive elements from various nuclear events. Fukushima is the worst on record and yet the least reported, at least in my opinion. This is a world changing event.
In a second blurb, we see that the sailors that have been involved in the Fukushima ‘clean up’ are now filing lawsuits over the physical repercussions they are suffering now. Click here to learn more.
The Transportation Security Administration has been quietly removing its X-ray body scanners from major airports over the last few weeks and replacing them with machines that radiation experts believe are safer.
The TSA says it made the decision not because of safety concerns but to speed up checkpoints at busier airports. It means, though, that far fewer passengers will be exposed to radiation because the X-ray scanners are being moved to smaller airports.
The backscatters, as the X-ray scanners are known, were swapped out at Boston Logan International Airport in early October. Similar replacements have occurred at Los Angeles International Airport, Chicago O’Hare, Orlando and John F. Kennedy in New York, the TSA confirmed Thursday.
17 months after the worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl, scientists are finding mutant butterflies now in the Fukushima area. They started noticing this some months ago with Butterflies with smaller wings. Now with the second generation, with small wings, it is a fact that we are seeing fallout (quite literally) in living organisms.
This added to the ‘tiny’ amounts of cesium found off San Diego would seem to me to be significant, although the scientists say that 10 time the amounts found in Tuna previously is till safe! I would not bet on this.
Needless to say it remains our responsibility to monitor our immediate environment and take the necessary precautions. There are several herbs out there that can help you to reduce the effects of some types of radiation, like bladderwrack.
As you can imagine in Post Tsunami Japan the backlash against the Nuclear power industry has been huge. None of their nuclear power plants were operating for quite sometime after the Tsunami, all of them were shut down for ‘scheduled maintenance’ if you can believe that. Only withing the past 2 weeks were two plants allowed to restart.
As the radiation disaster continues, many in the areas most affected by the tsunamis are hoping to rebuild, after all this is their home. What is interesting is the way in which they want to go about it. Sustainable and non nuclear! Solar panels to cover ground that can never be used again due to radiation. Although I can’t for the life of me imagine how or who would install them and then maintain them in such radiation.
I personally am hoping that the nuclear cabal in Japan has been damaged beyond repair and that we will see further damage to the industry worldwide. In my opinion it is absolutely irresponsible to continue to build nuclear power plants and operate those that exist. Once that monster is out of the bag the damage is not reversible in our lifetimes…
My children nor theirs should suffer from this generations arrogance. And arrogance is what it is plain and simple, not only in the case of nuclear power but finance as well. The destruction caused by both, while different, is nonetheless devastating to all of us on the planet!
I am encouraged that the people of Japan are trying to stand up to the political/nuclear/financial/academic cabal that promotes such destructive ideas. Not only can we see the destruction evident in the physical and spreading radiation from the Nukes but also in the financial devastation. Japan has passed a QUADRILLION IN DEBT! This is the highest debt level in both absolute and relative terms as a percentage of GDP.
The citizens of this country should pay heed to the failures in Japan. We are not completely unlike their case model…aging population, enormous debt, nuclear power plants built on geologically sensitive ground, financial/political/academic cabal that has the power!
Time to wake up and take some action…at least in my opinion!
Over the past several months the ‘Fukushima’ debate as I call it has resurfaced and has apparently concerned a few folks. I mean hey, for so long it was just out of sight out of mind. We kept telling people that radioactivity just doesn’t go away in as many ways as we could and people not only got tired of our pleas for some awareness, a few actually complained about our persistent emails to the point that we figured the majority of people just didn’t get what all the ‘fuss’ was about. Out of sight out of mind!
We folks, this issue just isn’t going to go away, not in our lifetimes nor our children’s. Sad but true. I suspect that we will continue to see new levels of ‘background’ radiation being adopted over time and no one will notice…at least not many. Not nearly enough to make a difference.
Once again money will rule the roost…the game seems to be all about ‘saving’ the nuclear power industry. Clean energy-oil free energy-and all that nonsense. Remember these industry guys and their politicians have a ton of money and time. They can wait the storm out and while waiting manipulate enough press and scientific boards to say and do just what they want. All the while the peasants just eat their garbage and continue on with their existence. Not having enough time, energy or money to really make a united stand against this travesty of energy systems.
Pay attention, this campaign has already begun. There are a few outcries, especially from the Japanese people wanting criminal charges and such. I suspect there will be a few symbolic heads roll, enough to appease the crowds while having many esteemed scientists saying how safe nukes are etc and eventually, after many august panels touting the efficiency and safety of nuclear power, lo and behold we will have a rash of new nukes and old ones restarting…mark my words. Sad but true.
Meanwhile take a look at this you tube that came from St Louis, I love it that someone is doing their own research!
The real question becomes, how do we survive this mess? Has anyone given any thought to that?
For the first time, scientists have discovered that tuna contaminated by last year’s radiation leak from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant have crossed the Pacific Ocean into U.S. waters, according to the Associated Press. Scientists have been started to discover the radioactive fish some 6,000 miles from their place of origin, the first time that large, migrating fish have been shown to carry contaminants over such a great distance.
Normally, radiation and other contaminants are found in smaller fish and plankton, and only in waters close to the source of contamination. However, levels of radioactive cesium have been found at ten times the normal levels in fish off of the coast of California. The current levels, say officials, are still below the levels considered unsafe by the U.S. and Japanese governments.
Fukushima one year on. I used to think that the lack of attention on Fukushima was just one of those out of sight out of mind things driven by the lack of coverage by mainstream media inducing some type of lethargy on the American people. So here we are 1 year down the road and the ‘fallout’ literally and figuratively continues and will do so for many years to come. There are still a few voices that continue to show concern, Arnie Gundersen among others continues to be, in my opinion, the most balanced and educated among all those following this catastrophe.
Of course, we still can’t really trust the information that is being fed us by MSM. After all the Japanese government and Nuclear industry are all confessed liars. The damage to the environment continues, hot wreckage is still washing ashore everywhere not to mention the huge debris field in the Pacific ocean. The human damage is, as expected, most obvious the closer to ground zero one gets with Japanese families financially and emotionally devastated. It seems the Japanese government just wants to ignore the incredible damage and just sweep it all under the rug. Nonetheless, damage there is and will continue to exist for decades as the radiation refuses to subside according to authorities wishes and the winds and ocean current carry the devastation far and wide.
I was just in southern California and there is a very large Nuclear power plant there, right on the ocean and fault line. In my opinion it is only a question of time before we see an ‘accident’ a la Fukushima occur. All we need is a large earthquake and tsunami and we are in the same boat….but this time the devastation will be worse in our country. I wonder when we will learn….
1000 times the radiation levels found over 400 miles off Japanese coast and they say that they are well below levels harmful to fish and people. For some reason I have a very hard time believing this one.
I am under the impression that any exposure to higher levels of radiation is not good. Just take a look at the incidences of premature births and deaths in areas, especially Washington state, since the Fukushima disaster.
Prolonged exposure of anything to higher levels of radiation will affect the organism, I don’t care what kind of organism it is!
Radiation detected 400 miles off Japanese coast
Associated PressBy BRIAN SKOLOFF and MALCOLM RITTER | Associated Press – 4 hrs ago
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Radioactive contamination from the Fukushima power plant disaster has been detected as far as almost 400 miles off Japan in the Pacific Ocean, with water showing readings of up to 1,000 times more than prior levels, scientists reported Tuesday.
But those results for the substance cesium-137 are far below the levels that are generally considered harmful, either to marine animals or people who eat seafood, said Ken Buesseler of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts.
He spoke Tuesday in Salt Lake City at the annual Ocean Sciences Meeting, attended by more than 4,000 researchers this week.
The results are for water samples taken in June, about three months after the power plant disaster, Buesseler said. In addition to thousands of water samples, researchers also sampled fish and plankton and found cesium-137 levels well below the legal health limit.
“We’re not over the hump” yet in terms of radioactive contamination of the ocean because of continued leakage from the plant, Buesseler said in an interview before Tuesday’s talk. He was chief scientist for the cruise that collected the data.
The ship sampled water from about 20 miles to about 400 miles off the coast east of the Fukushima plant. Concentrations of cesium-137 throughout that range were 10 to 1,000 times normal, but they were about one-tenth the levels generally considered harmful, Buesseler said.
Cesium-137 wasn’t the only radioactive substance released from the plant, but it’s of particular concern because of its long persistence in the environment. Its half-life is 30 years.
The highest readings last June were not always from locations closest to the Fukushima plant, Buesseler said. That’s because swirling ocean currents formed concentrations of the material, he said.
Most of the cesium-137 detected during the voyage probably entered the ocean from water discharges, rather than atmospheric fallout, he added.
Hartmut Nies, of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said Buesseler’s findings were not surprising, given the vastness of the ocean and its ability to absorb and dilute materials.
“This is what we predicted,” Nies said after Buesseler presented his research.
Nies said the water’s cesium-137 concentration has been so diluted that just 20 miles offshore, “if it was not seawater, you could drink it without any problems.”
“This is good news,” he said, adding that scientists expect levels to continue to decrease over time.
“We still don’t have a full picture,” Nies said, “but we can expect the situation will not become worse.”
I still take Enerfood and an iodine supplement daily just to remain healthy. The enerfood has spirulina and chlorella in it, both proven to help detox from radiation.
