The Japanese Government admitted in May 2011 that they had 14 Nuclear reactors that had been seriously damaged, not just the 4 at the Fukushima Nuclear disaster site.
Quote from page 1 of this Presentation:
"According to Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA), the earthquake and subsequent tsunami affected fourteen nuclear reactors at four sites along the eastern coast the Fukushima Daiichi site (six reactors), Fukushima Daini site (four reactors), the Ongawa site (three reactors) and the Tokai site (one reactor). The most serious damage occurred at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station."
The former Japanese ambassador to Switzerland, Ambassador Murata, recently wrote an open letter to the UN secretary general asking for International help in dealing with this disaster. He felt that the Japanese Government and TEPCO did not have the resources to deal with it as urgently as necessary. The Fukushima nuclear disaster has a potential to seriously escalate into an even worse disaster. It is already many times worse than Chernobyl.
He is not the only one calling for Japan to accept international help. US senator Ron Wyden. "Alarmed by the precarious nature of spent fuel storage during his recent tour of the Fukushima Daiichi site, Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Oregon subsequently fired off letters to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Secretary of Energy Steven Chu, NRC Chairman Gregory Jaczko and Japanese ambassador to the U.S. Ichiro Fujisaki. He implored all parties to work together and with the international community to address this situation as swiftly as possible." He considers it a US national security issue.
The issue at present is spent fuel pool four, at Fukushima. It has 1535 fuel assemblies sitting 30 meters off the ground, in a building that has been heavily damaged by an explosion, and is leaning. This fuel pools contain multiple nuclear reactor cores. To save money, the nuclear industry all over the world, is storing multiple old reactor cores in spent fuel cooling pools above working reactors. They are only supposed to store one or two old reactor cores in each pool, but they have been tightly packing multiple cores into the cooling pools. This is what makes the situation is at Fukushima very serious and urgent.
The experts are saying that if fuel pool 4 collapses, or drains because of another earthquake, the resultant radiation released will be so great that workers and robots will not be able to enter the site to contain the resultant disaster. With the already 100% melted down reactors 1,2 and 3 in china syndrome, plus another large dry cast storage 50 meters away from this fuel pool, it has the potential to release an unprecedented amount of radiation into the Earth's Biosphere.
We already have a study just released, of the children living in Fukushima City. Fukushima City is outside of the "so called" exclusion zone. In this study, after 12 months of living there, they found 35% of the children under 18 had thyroid nodules. This is unprecedented and means these children where subjected to large exposures of radiation. At the beginning of this disaster all these children should have been evacuated!
Hiroaki Koide, a Nuclear Reactor Specialist and Assistant Professor at Kyoto University Research Reactor Institute, stated at a New York City press conference on May the 4th 2012, that 20,000 square kilometers of Japan should be evacuated, if Japan was to follow the law.
"While traveling in Japan several weeks ago, Fairewinds’ Arnie Gundersen took soil samples in Tokyo public parks, playgrounds, and rooftop gardens. All the samples would be considered nuclear waste, if found in the US. This level of contamination is currently being discovered throughout Japan."
For an overall summery of the seriousness of situation, I suggest you listen to this interview on Green Planet FM radio station. You can listen to the interview by clicking on the speaker icon at the top of the page. The interview starts after a bit of an introduction on synchronicity.
It is important to understand that enormous amounts of radioactivity have been released, and is still being released into the environment, and that no one has the technology to deal with this type of disaster. The technology has not been created yet. Look at the club background radiation monitoring site for the latest local, and southern hemisphere radiation detection information. It is provided as a community service. http://www.sccc.org.au/archives/2630
Radiation bio-accumulates, particularly in meat, dairy and seafood, grown and harvested in radiation contaminated areas. Ingested radiation from contaminated food radiates body cells with high doses of radiation for long periods of time. Bio-accumulation of radiation in the food chain is probably the most serious threat to us living in the southern hemisphere at present. The Food Lab has the latest up to date International reports of radioactive food contamination.
It is important for your family's health and safety, that you take the time and effort, to research this subject. In summary, for your family's safety, only purchase food and goods from areas which are not contaminated. Research dietary systems that help remove, or protect your body from radioactive contamination. This could be important information in dealing with the extra radiation in our environment.
An Oncologist in Japan has been doing ongoing research on the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster site workers, and has found he is getting very good results with Liposomal Vitamin C. It appears to be healing a lot of radiation damage in their bodies. Liposomal Vitamin C is a combination of vitamin C and lecithin. This combination seems to improve the up take of vitamin C by 80%! It maybe a good idea for you and your family to research taking this, to fortify against the effects of these radiation clouds coming through. He has been trying to encourage the Japanese government to educate their people about this treatment.
Members can now also get instruction on request on how to use or set up a DIY food testing lab for radiation contamination, or how to use and set up a Geiger Counter.
