Fifty percent increase in radioactive Cesium contamination and the Japanese continue to contaminate the ocean with impunity. 

Every corporate news source attempts to spin this away as irrelevant, because of “government standards.” What they don’t do is investigate if these government standards are legitimate and scientifically sound. They are not. Fetuses are many times more vulnerable to radioactivity than the full grown men that were the subjects behind the drafting of these government standards. Ruminate on that for a minute.

The lax government standards may ensure there isn’t a mass die-off. It does nothing for you personally or your children if they ingest significant radioisotopes over their lives. That’s what’s really going on here.

 

Highest-Yet Radiation Levels Found Off US Coast

 

One sample collected roughly 1,600 miles west of San Francisco revealed the highest radiation level detected to date off the West Coast, the researchers said in a post on the project’s website. “[In] one cubic meter of seawater (about 264 gallons), 11 radioactive decay events per second can be attributed to cesium atoms of both isotopes. That is 50 percent higher than we’ve seen before.”

Physicians for Social Responsibility has an extensive rebuttal to the UNSCEAR rosy scenario 2014 “report.”

Critical Analysis of the UNSCEAR Report “Levels and effects of radiation exposure due to the nuclear accident after the 2011 Great East-Japan Earthquake and tsunami”

There are several contentious issues regarding the IAEA/ FAO foodstuff database. First of all, it only includes measurement data for I-131, Cs-134 and Cs-137 and so the UNSCEAR report only considered these three radionuclides in the assessment of doses from ingestion.58 Other radionuclides, such as Sr-89/90 were not taken into account. Also, no comment is made in the UNSCEAR report regarding the sites where and how the IAEA food samples were collected, raising the suspicion that selective sampling may have taken place.

…The dose assessments of the Fukushima workers cannot be relied upon

The UNSCEAR report lists 24,832 people who were employed on the site of the nuclear catastrophe as plant workers, emergency personnel and clean-up staff. Regarding their radiation exposure, UNSCEAR relies solely on data received from TEPCO itself.67

…The special vulnerability of the embryo to radiation is not taken into account

…Non-cancer diseases and hereditary effects were ignored by UNSCEAR

…Comparisons of nuclear fallout with background radiation are misleading

…UNSCEAR’s interpretations of findings are questionable

…UNSCEAR’s conservative method of calculating lifetime dose, this figure most probably represents a systematic underestimation

Japanese Doctor: “Tokyo should no longer be inhabited”

” contamination in the east part [of Tokyo] is 1000-4000 Bq/kg and the west part is 300-1000 Bq/kg. […] 0.5-1.5 Bq/kg before 2011. […] Tokyo should no longer be inhabited […] Contamination in Tokyo is progressing, and further worsened by urban radiation concentration”

 

Experts: Fukushima ‘globally enhanced’ cesium-137 levels in air by 2 to 3 orders of magnitude

 

Clearly detectable in tuna at California coast…

Sure enough every single fish without exception was radioactive. Every single one. They were all like clones of each other… all the same [levels of radioactive cesium from Fukushima].

The children of Chernobyl… forever

These authors will donate the royalties of their works as a contribution to allow the publication of a DvD-book which tells the story of the Chernobyl accident and its consequences. This book, written collectively, will be the basis for aHUMANITARIAN OPERATION for the benefit of children exposed to radiations and living in contaminated areas.We would like you to share our committment by making a DONATION-SUBSCRIPTION to CHERNOBYL FOREVER.”

Fukushima: Wave of Radiation Will Be Ten Times Bigger than All of the Radiation from Nuclear Tests Combined

The Canadian government has confirmed in October that Fukushima radiation will exceed “levels higher than maximum fallout” from the nuclear tests.

US Government Cover-Up:

The government said it was just doing a routine “background radiation” check, but that it was really measuring the amount of “hot particles” in the Seattle area (starting at 27:00). Hot particles are inhaled and become very dangerous “internal emitters”. The government then covered up the results on the basis of “national security”.

As the Washington Department of Health noted at the time:

A helicopter flying over some urban areas of King and Pierce counties will gather radiological readings July 11-28, 2011. [Seattle is in King County.] The U.S. Department of Energy’s Remote Sensing Laboratory Aerial Measurement System will collect baseline levels of radioactive materials.

**

Some of the data may be withheld for national security purposes.

Similarly, the Department of Homeland Security and National Nuclear Security Administration sent low-flying helicopters over the San Francisco Bay Area in 2012 to test for radiation. But they have not released the results.

 

If anyone still buys the propaganda about radiation, on how “safe” and “low” it is, of no concern to them and their children, they need to read this.

  • Question: How much radioactive cesium is safe to eat?
  • Answer: Zero.

“On average, fish in the 33,000 tests had 18 becquerels per kilo of radioactive cesium… Some fish samples tested to date have had very high levels of radiation: one sea bass sample collected in July, for example, had 1,000 becquerels per kilogram of cesium.” –CTV

The Japanese government is now responsible for contaminating a large swath of the north Pacific and the fish that live in that irradiated environment.  This contamination is undeniable and continues daily constituting a crime, a massive crime on a scale seldom seen.  The collusion of other nuclear states in trying to minimize the perception of harm from this contamination makes them partners in the crime.  Fukushima is perhaps the greatest environmental crime ever perpetrated and it continues every day.

Legions of troll shills — and deluded true believers — attempt to type away the real harm spewing into the ocean.  They rely on old and discredited studies to pretend that the cancer and disease risks are negligible (to them), and that we should just accept this poisoning without taking action to oppose them.  This immoral position they hold must be challenged and their junk science called out as a fraud.

Cancer Risk Model Undercounts Victims:

Nuclear industry lies include a one-size fits all concept called “dose” of radioactivity.  This is an apples vs. oranges fallacy.  Being beamed from outside your body vs. ingesting radiation and having it take up residence inside the nuclei of your cells are two completely different situations.  Any honest scientist must accept that.  The nuclear mafia employs very few of those.

Dr. Chris Busby:

Fukushima Fallout Damaged the Thyroids of California Babies

“For what is done by these people is to dismiss any evidence of increased rates of cancer or any other disease by shouting at it: “the doses were too low”. In this way, reality is airbrushed away. What is this quantity “dose”? It is a simple physics-based quantity which represents the absorption of energy from radiation. One Sievert of gamma radiation is one Joule per kilogram of living tissue.

This might work for external radiation. But it doesn’t work for internal exposures to radioactive elements which can produce huge effects on cellular DNA at low average “doses”. It is like comparing warming yourself in front of the fire with eating a hot coal. Or comparing a punch to stabbing. Same dose, same energy. Very different effects…

Our paper reports 44 confirmed thyroid cancer cases in 0-18 year olds in Fukushima prefecture in the last six months (a figure that has since risen to 53). In the hypothyroidism paper we discuss the 44 cases relative to the population and calculate that this represents an 80-fold excess based on national data prior to the Fukushima Iodine releases.

This presents a severe challenge to Dr Wolfgang Weiss of the UN and WHO, who stated last year that no thyroid cancers could result from the Fukushima disaster as the “doses were too low”. How does he explain the 80-fold increase in this normally rare condition?

Or rather, when will he admit that the entire scientific model that underpins his views is fraudulent? And that nuclear radiation is – roughly speaking – 1,000 times more dangerous to human health than he is letting on?”
