Why test food for radioactive contamination?


Because governments have deceived the public about food safety radiation levels worldwide.

They first release an article like the one below. I am using the EU as an example here.


“EU boosts food import controls after Japanese nuclear disaster. The European Union is to step up controls on food imports from Japan in the wake of the nuclear accident at Fukushima - but stressed there was no evidence that consumers in the region were at risk from radiation-contaminated food.


The EU ruling insists that all products from these prefectures are tested before leaving Japan and said they will be subject to random testing in the bloc. Japanese authorities will have to provide a declaration confirming products do not contain radioactive elements - called radionuclides - that exceed EU maximum levels. The Commission highlighted radionuclides iodine-131, caesium-134 and caesium-137."

http://www.foodproductiondaily.com/Quality-Safety/EU-boosts-food-import-controls-after-Japanese-nuclear-disaster


This makes you feel warm and cosy inside, because you think your government is looking after you and your family. This article "EU boosts food import controls after Japanese nuclear disaster" is a clever deception because they then proceed to quietly raise the EU maximum safety levels by 20x for caesium-134 and caesium-137. Governments worldwide have used this same tactic.

http://foodfreedom.wordpress.com/2011/04/04/eu-secretly-ups-cesium-safety-level-in-food-20-fold/


They then tell the public everything is testing below safety levels, nothing to worry about!


Here is another example, Japan this time.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oc6FPIK1VaY


If you do purchase good food testing radiation contamination equipment, look at the old pre Fukushima radioactive food contamination safety levels, as a possible guide. If you can purchase a none contaminated food item do so, as any level of radioactive food contamination poses a risk.


So what does this mean?

Radiation contamination bio-accumulates over time, 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.


You can't rely on governments, so it is important for your family’ health and safety that you take the time and effort to research this subject. In summary, for your family’ safety, only purchase food and goods that are not from contaminated areas. Also, research dietary systems that help remove or protect your body from radioactive contamination.


An Oncologist in Japan Dr. Atsuo Yanagisawa, has been doing ongoing research on the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster site workers, and found he is getting very good results with Liposomal Vitamin C. It appears to be healing a lot of radiation damage to 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 radiation. He has been trying to encourage the Japanese government to educate their people about this treatment.

If you are living in Southern Hemisphere, it is suggested at present,  to eat locally grown  food. A lot of  Northern Hemisphere food is safe to eat. It is just hard to tell what  is and what isn't, without government or private testing. The dynamics of the situation suggests that Southern Hemisphere grown food is more likely to be less contaminated.  No significant detections have been made in any locally grown food, that has been tested so far here, at our testing lab in Australia. Be careful of food products labelled "Made from Australian and imported ingredients".

Latest International reports of radioactive isotope contamination of food items



This is by no means a complete list. If you know of a reported detection that is not on this list please lets us know by posting a comment.


NOTE: A lot of food and environmental detection reports tend to concentrate on Cesium detection. This is because it is relatively easy to test for, and detect. If Cesium is present in a test result, there is a possibility that other types of radioactive isotopes are also present  but not reported. Fallout is a dirty mixture of isotopes. It is not just Cesium. Some of the other isotope contaminants particularly the dangerous Alpha emitters, need more specialized and expensive equipment  to detect their presence.


Ingested radiation from contaminated food or water, radiates body cells with high doses of radiation for long periods of time. This means any ingestion of radioactive isotopes increases risk to ones well being. Children and pregnant women are far more sensitive to the effects of radiation. This very informative video, that is just 10 minutes long, discusses the damage very small amounts of ingested Cesium can do to children. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9d3I3S99Dc&feature=player_embedded

25.05.2016 - Fukushima clean-up chief still hunting for 600 tonnes of melted radioactive fuel

Extracts:

The operator of the stricken Fukushima nuclear plant has revealed that 600 tonnes of reactor fuel melted during the disaster, and that the exact location of the highly radioactive blobs remains a mystery.

More than 10 million large bags of contaminated soil and waste have so far been collected. The bags are now stored in thousands of sites around Fukushima, with some of the piles several storeys high.

Special Report

14th April 2016 - Here we have two recent articles on the incidence of thyroid cancer in the children from Fukushima Japan. The first article puts the case that the increased thyroid cancer detection rate is the result of more thyroid screening, that they are not cancers, but naturally occurring thyroid nodules.

In my comment below the articles, I provide the physical evidence as to why the incidence of thyroid cancer is so high in the contaminated areas of Japan, and why so many thyroid cancer cases have shown up in Japan, much sooner than after the Chernobyl Nuclear Catastrophe.

-----------------

04.03.2016 - Mystery cancers are cropping up in children in aftermath of Fukushima

Extract:

One result, says Kenji Shibuya, a public health specialist at University of Tokyo, was “overdiagnosis and overtreatment,” leading dozens of children to have their thyroids removed, perhaps unnecessarily. Activists trumpeted the findings as evidence of the dangers of nuclear power. The large number of abnormalities appearing so soon after the accident “would indicate that these children almost certainly received a very high dose of thyroid radiation from inhaled and ingested radioactive iodine,” antinuclear crusader Helen Caldicott wrote in a post on her homepage.

Scientists emphatically disagree. “The evidence suggests that the great majority and perhaps all of the cases so far discovered are not due to radiation,” says Dillwyn Williams, a thyroid cancer specialist at University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom.

-----------------

04.03.2016 - Fukushima Thyroid Examination Fact Sheet: March 2016

On January 22, 2016, the International Society for Environmental Epidemiology sent an open letter to the Japanese government [51] expressing their concern about a “12-fold higher risk of developing thyroid cancer among residents of Fukushima” compared to the Japan’s annual incidence, as demonstrated in the study by Tsuda et al. ISEE called for the need to develop scientific studies of health risks from the accident and offered to the government of Japan its expertise as an independent international professional organization of environmental epidemiologists. To date, the Japanese government is yet to acknowledge the ISEE letter [52].

http://fukushimavoice-eng2.blogspot.com.au/

-----------------

Comment:

Why the high incidence can not be simply put down to naturally occurring thyroid nodules. The population near Fukushima was subject to massive amounts of different types of radioactive Iodine isotopes, not just Iodine-131, plus huge amounts of radioactive Cesium which can also cause Thyroid cancer. The reports below clearly reveal just how large the Iodine fallout was, just after Fukushima.

26.06.2013 - After two years the April 2011 radioactive Iodine I-131 deposition for part of eastern Japan has been released. The maps show contamination by radioactive iodine in the 400 square kilometer area around Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant, and are based on the analysis of aerial surveys done by the US Department of Energy on April 2 and 3 in 2011.

http://ex-skf.blogspot.com.au/2013/06/jaea-and-us-dept-of-energy-maps-of.html

26.06.2013 - This scientific report indicates that the amount of long lived radioactive Iodine I-129, released during the early stages of the Fukushima Nuclear disaster, was 31 times greater than the short lived radioactive Iodine I-131. This study does not take into account any radioactive Iodine releases since then.

http://www.terrapub.co.jp/journals/GJ/pdf/4604/46040327.pdf

Reported on the 14th June 2013:

“1.19 million becquerels/kg of radioactive iodine detected on leafy vegetables near Fukushima Medical University in March 2011. Being aware of this high radioactive iodine detection, Fukushima Medical University distributed potassium iodide pills to the doctors and nurses. The report points out that potassium iodine pills were not distributed to local men, women, and children. This university is located just south of Fukushima City.”

http://ex-skf.blogspot.com.au/2013/06/fukushima-medical-university.html

Another pre Fukushima Argentina studying indicates that the I-129 will eventually reach the Southern Hemisphere, as it has from other major sources, like the nuclear fuel reprocessing plants of Cape de La Hague (France) and Sellafield (UK).

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0048969712006353

The bio-accumulation of I-129 poses a serious health problem for animal and human populations. Unlike radioactive Iodine I-131, which has a short half life of 8 days, or an environmental presence of 80 days +, radioactive Iodine I-129 has a half life of 15.7 million years.

Most people are not aware there are lots of different types of radioactive Iodine fallout isotopes besides I-131, because the main stream media only focuses on I-131. These reports here focused on the huge releases of I-131, 1-134 and I-129, and did not include other radioactive Iodine isotope types that were released from the Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe site, at the time! I would also like to point out that five years on, radioactive Iodine-131 is still being detected in local sewage sludge, which suggests there are still ongoing criticalities happening at the site.

It would be logical to suggest that locations that had fallout detections of Iodine I-131 from Fukushima, eg. Japan, Southern California (In kelp), San Francisco, Philadelphia, and Europe etc., should include all the versions of radioactive Iodine fallout, to get the true total of radioactive Iodine fallout exposure.

I have been informed by a reliable source, the reason the general population was not advised to take, or issued with Potassium Iodine pills, is that there was a worldwide shortage at the time. It was not possible to supply them to everyone, so who was chosen get them at the time?

10.04.2016 - Ban lifted on “himemasu” salmon fishing at Fukushima lake after 4-year hiatus

Extracts:

After the nuclear accident, radioactive cesium content exceeding the maximum allowable level of 100 becquerels per kilogram set by the Food Sanitation Act was found from himemasu samples and fishing was banned in April 2012. But no sample has surpassed the standard since August 2014, prompting the prefectural government to withdraw its request for voluntary ban and leading a local fisheries cooperative to lift the ban. The current himemasu fishing season continues until Sept. 30.

06.04.2016 - Wild radioactive Fukushima boars breed like rabbits, ravage local countryside

Extract:

Despite boar meat being considered a delicacy in northern Japan, the meat of wild boars from Fukushima area is not suitable for human consumption because it contains high concentrations of radioactive substances. Normally one of the healthiest red meats, very high in protein, Fukushima’s wild boars have become quite the opposite of “healthy nutrition,” as they normally eat roots, nuts, berries and smaller animals from the forest floor, which is where the highest levels of radioactive fallout, typically washed down by the rain, is concentrated. The radioactive element caesium-137 has been reportedly discovered in animals from the area at levels 300 times higher than the regulatory standard for human consumption. Local authorities have been issuing warnings to residents asking them to refrain from eating boar meat.

Comment:

In this article they make this statement,

Quote,

“To date, no evidence has emerged of genetic damage in humans exposed to the radiation in Fukushima. A study by Stanford University in California concluded that about 130 people may die as a result of cancers caused by the disaster, which is considered to be a rather low number given the size of the population affected.”

Here is a list of documented fatalities and Injuries resulting from the Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe that clearly shows this statement is false.

02.04.2016-Radioactive sediment found in Fukushima rivers

Extracts:

The researchers found up to 54,500 becquerels per kg of radioactive substances in the Maeda river in Futaba town, where the plant is situated, and 39,600 becquerels in the Hiru river in Fukushima city. They also detected more than 10,000 becquerels at five other locations in four municipalities.

The prefectural government plans to study restricting access to rivers with high concentrations of radioactive materials.

26.03.2016 - 650Bq/Kg of I-131 still measured from sewage sludge of Fukushima

Extracts:

High level of I-131 was measured for 11 days this January in dry sewage sludge, Fukushima prefectural government announced on 2/26/2016.

The highest density was 648.1 Bq/Kg. It was continuously detected from 1/21 to 1/31/2016. The data of February has not been published yet.

Both of the highest densities were detected about 1 week after the rain (57.0 mm) to strongly implies the possibility that the discharged radioactive material is carried by the wind and fall with rain.

11.03.2016 - Gone Fishing - Fukushima at Five Years

Extract:

The vessel bobbed in the choppy waters several hundred yards away from the still stricken, still leaking, still out of control triple nuclear reactors in full meltdown at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant. Gone fishing in the hot zone.

‘Here’s a screenshot I took on 1/20/2016 at 2:36 [Japanese Standard Time] via the TBS Webcam,” says Sierra Nevada musician Chas Haws in a Radiation Conversation comment on EnviroReporter.com not long after taking it earlier this year. “It looks like a very large fishing boat with its trolling lights on. The thought that somebody somewhere could unknowingly consume those fish is a very scary thought. So scary I can’t believe any human being in their right mind would do such a thing.“

Comment:

This article raises questions about how serious the Japanese are about keeping contaminated Japanese fish off the market!

04.03.2016 - A report from Greenpeace reveals that the destruction of ecosystems caused by the Fukushima meltdown is worse than the government lets on.

Extracts:

“The Abe government is perpetuating a myth that five years after the start of the nuclear accident the situation is returning to normal,” said Kendra Ulrich, Senior Nuclear Campaigner at Greenpeace Japan, in a statement on Friday. “The evidence exposes this as political rhetoric, not scientific fact.”

“The government’s massive decontamination program will have almost no impact on reducing the ecological threat from the enormous amount of radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster,” Ulrich said.

03.03.2016 - Japan Diary 2016, Fukushima+5 Part 3. People are Sick Now

Extracts:

Many are engaged in legal battles to win compensation. Some are now effectively homeless and relying on the help of service organizations, churches and help from family. Many are women whose husbands do not support their choice to move their children to less contaminated areas. Divorce due to Daiichi is not uncommon.

I met a representative of a service organization that has done interviews with families that were directly exposed when Daiichi 1, 2 and 3 melted down…and by contamination since 2011. When the report comes out, it will say that 80% of the large number of families they have spoken to have health problems NOW. When this report becomes available, NIRS will share it. For now, I will simply say: cancer is not the only harm that comes from radiation exposure.

03.03.2016 - Five years after quake, Fukushima market battles to keep fishery items in stores

Extracts:

Inspectors picked up samples from the boxes packed with seafood that the middlemen had brought. They then put the samples into buckets so they could be checked for radioactive contamination.

While they minced the meat, the inspectors examined the samples with a radiation detector. The monitor displayed a circle, indicating radioactive concentration levels were within the criteria. Having passed the test, a certification label was immediately put on each box and the fishery products were taken away by trucks for delivery.

Comment:

The radiation testing techniques described in this article, to test for radioactive contamination in the freshly caught fish, raises questions about how serious the Japanese are about keeping contaminated Japanese fish off the market! Waving a radiation detector briefly over some fish is not a proper test. Testing this way would not detect the small levels of contamination that can affect human health.

16.02.2016 - 559 Bq/Kg of Cs-137 detected from vacuum dust in Tokyo

Extract:

By 2/16/2016, a citizen’s radiation measurement station “Iwaki citizen’s radiation measurement station” announced 559 Bq/Kg of Cs-137 was detected from vacuum cleaner dust in Tokyo.

The sampling location was Edogawa ward in Tokyo.

06.02.2016 - Sr-90 density jumped up over 10 times in groundwater beside Reactor 2

Extracts:

The reading was 3,200,000 Bq/m3. The previous highest reading was 290,000 Bq/m3. 54,000,000 Bq/m3 of Sr-90 was also detected from the next observation hole, which is the highest reading from this observation well. There are 5 wells in this area outside of the underground wall, but Tepco is concealing the data of 2 of these wells for some reason.

Comment:

The ever increasing Sr-90 levels being detected at the Fukushima site, are predicted by a 1992 German simulation of a Nuclear Plant core melt down, on the upper Rhine river.

This simulation concluded that,

1. Strontium-90 levels would skyrocket, and reach a peak level around 5,000 days later. Strontium-90 levels would then stay high for around another 40,000 days + !

2. Cesium-137 would reach peak levels after 10,000 days.

Interestingly, Tepco has tried to implement the counter measures suggested in this document, at the Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe site. They have not had much success so far.

Japan’s Fukushima ‘worst in history’ (17.09.2011)

Extracts:

At least one billion becquerels a day of radiation continue to leak from Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant after the March earthquake and tsunami.

Experts say that the total amount of radiation leaked will exceed amounts released from Chernobyl, making Fukushima the worst nuclear disaster in history.

Al Jazeera’s Steve Chao reports from the Japanese capital of Tokyo.

Comment:

Twenty seconds into this video they show a map of dangerous radioactive hot spots in Tokyo. The tests were done by professional labs. The contaminated Tokyo hot spots are at levels where mandatory evacuation was enforced around Chernobyl. There is also evidence presented in the report of children already getting sick.

22.01.2016 - Cs-134/137 detected from over 40 percent of fish in 20km radius area outside of Fukushima plant port

Extracts:

On 1/19/2016, Tepco announced they measured Cesium-134/137 from 40.5% of fish in 20km radius sea area from Fukushima plant. Fukushima plant port is excluded.

The samples were collected in mid December of 2015. 30 sorts of fish were collected and analyzed.

The highest density of Cs-134/137 was 86 Bq/Kg. The samples were not dry to be tested for some reason.

Among 106 samples, Cs-134/137 was detected from 43 samples.

Extract:

In total, I-131 was measured almost everyday this November. The highest reading was 49 Bq/Kg.

In October, I-131 was detected only on 10/30/2015.

Comment:

These recent sewage sludge I-131 detection reports, in a city near the Fukushima site, point to criticality still occurring at the nuclear catastrophe site!

10.01.2016 - 8,000 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 from vacuum dust collected in the last week of 2015

Extract:

On 1/8/2016, the same person posted on Twitter that 7,993 Bq/Kg of Cesium-134/137 was measured even after the entire cleaning of the house.

After cleaning the entire house to detect 5,600 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 from the dust on 12/20/2015, the person cleaned the house again. 7,993 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 was measured in the dust collected during this second enter cleaning, which suggests radioactive material is still newly accumulated in a house.

31.12.2015 - Radiation-contaminated water at Fukushima plant on the rise

Extract:

Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), the operator of the plant, had initially planned to halve the daily amount of contaminated groundwater to 150 metric tons by pumping up groundwater from wells called “groundwater drains” on the ocean side and “subdrains” inland. However, because the pumped water was found to be highly radioactive, the utility was unable to release it into the ocean, resulting in up to around 400 tons a day of tainted water being transferred back to the side of reactor buildings.

08.11.2015 - Chris Busby; Fukushima Thyroid Cancer- The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences

Extract:

Sweden, like all European States is subject to the EURATOM Basic Safety Standards Directive which contains a clause, an amendment by the European Greens in 1996 at the suggestion of Busby, Alice Stewart, Alexy Yablokov and Rosalie Bertell.

It states that if “New and important Evidence” emerges that the risk model is wrong, all practices involving radiation exposure in the EU must be Justified all over again. Here, Chris Busby attacks the risk model and those who had presented extremely biased science through the day of the symposium.

He draws attention particularly to the recent publication in the journal Epidemiology which reports 120 thyroid cancers in 380,000 children living near Fukushima. This shows an error in the ICRP model of 2600 times.

Comment:

It is very evident from numerous research papers, that the Nuclear industry dose model is seriously flawed. This means all their statements about safety levels are grossly inaccurate. They don’t want the general population to be aware of this.

21.06.2015 - Radioactive cesium levels in Fukushima river seasonal: study

Extracts:

Radioactive cesium contamination levels in a river near the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant rise in the spring and fall in the autumn, a new study shows.

The average density of radioactive cesium-137 per kilogram of sediment was 1,450 becquerels in spring 2012, 1,270 becquerels in autumn 2012, 2,700 becquerels in spring 2013, 451 becquerels in autumn 2013, 1,080 becquerels in spring 2014 and 600 becquerels in autumn 2014.

The highest level was 22,800 becquerels at one location in spring 2013, and there is a wide variation from location to location.

Comment:

It is not just this one river near the Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe site that is contaminated. All the contaminated river systems in central Honshu, plus the underground river flowing over the three molten cores at the Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe site, are continually washing huge amounts of radioactive contamination into the Pacific Ocean.

All the evidence is that Pacific sea life is being seriously affected, hence the large multiple species die off reports of sea birds, fish, seals and whales etc.

25.05.2015 - Still 960,000Bq Cs-134/137 and 2,336,000,000Bq noble gas discharged from reactors to the air every single hour

Extract:

Regarding noble gas (such as Kr-85), PCV (Primary Containment Vessel) gas control system detected 2,336,000,000 Bq of gas discharged from Reactor 1-3 every hour this April. Tepco states noble gas passes by as radioactive cloud to cause only external exposure so the exposure dose caused by the discharged noble gas should be significantly small.

Comment:

These significant ongoing Krypton K-85 and other radioactive release from Fukushima could be significantly altering the worlds climate and creating “Planetary Thermal Imbalance & Extreme UV Levels”! Planetary Thermal Imbalance is indicated by record breaking extremes in worldwide hot and cold temperatures. The large difference between hot and cold creates extreme weather events.

12.03.2015 - Produce worries easing but some fish, wild foods still a problem in wake of Fukushima meltdowns

Extracts:

But concern remains over fish, wild vegetables and wild game. Between April 1 last year and March 1, around 292,000 such samples were tested for radioactive cesium and 502, or 0.17 percent, exceeded the safe threshold, the health ministry said. In fiscal 2012, that ratio stood at 0.85 percent.

In February, wild boar meat from Fukushima Prefecture was found to contain 15,000 becquerels of cesium per kilogram, the highest figure since last April
1. Highly contaminated wild game was also found in Miyagi, Iwate, Ibaraki, Tochigi, Gunma, Niigata and Saitama prefectures, including wild boar meat from Miyagi that contained 1,300 becquerels of cesium per kilogram and deer meat from Saitama that contained 530 becquerels of cesium per kilogram, according to government data.

Comment:

If Cesium is present, there is the likely hood that other radioactive isotopes are also present, but not tested for.

In my opinion, the so called Japanese safe limit of 100 Bq/kg of Cesium is set too high, particularly for children, who are much more sensitive to radiation than adults. This short ten minute video explains why 100 Bq/kg of Cesium is too high a limit for children.

26.01.2015 - Analysis of Japanese Radionuclide Monitoring Data of Food Before and After the Fukushima Nuclear Accident.

Extracts:

Lessons Learned. An ample set of food monitoring data allows for the observation of general radioecological trends, such as the mobility and bioavailability of radionuclides. In this particular case, the long series of pre-Fukushima monitoring data teach us that the 90Sr/137Cs activity ratio is not constant in foodstuffs but constantly increases with time, thus causing an underestimation of the internal exposure as long as a constant (and low) ratio is assumed by the regulatory bodies.

A key finding of this study is that the correlation between 90Sr and 137Cs may soon no longer follow the assumption of a maximum 90Sr/137Cs activity ratio of 0.1 or even 0.003 in food. Background data from Japan suggested that after several years following the release into the environment, the 90Sr/137Cs activity ratio observed in food rises significantly (most of the samples showing a ratio > 2).

22.12.2014 - Radiological Dose Rates to Marine Fish from the Fukushima Daiichi Accident: The First Three Years Across the North Pacific

Extract:

Our analysis of publicly available data indicates the dose rates to the most impacted fish species near the FDNPP (median 1.1 mGy d-1, 2012-2014 data) have remained above benchmark levels for potential dose effects at least three years longer than was indicated by previous, data-limited evaluations.

In addition to 134,137Cs, the radionuclide 90Sr was estimated to contribute up to approximately one-half of the total 2013 dose rate to fish near the FDNPP.

A hypothetical human consumer of 50 kg of fish, gathered 3 km from the FDNPP in 2013, would have received a total committed effective dose of approximately 0.95 mSv a-1 from combined FDNPP and ambient radionuclides, of which 0.13 mSv a-1 (14%) was solely from the FDNPP radionuclides and below the 1 mSv a-1 benchmark for public exposure.

Comment:

In my opinion, the internal dose rate model is seriously flawed. There are so many independent studies that show it is flawed, and should not be use. It is used to play down the serious effects of internal ingestion of radioactive isotopes. A lot of radioactive isotopes are often not just radioactive, but also chemically toxic.

It does not take into account the serious biological toxicity multiplying effect of an organism ingesting multiple radioactive, and chemical toxins.

15.11.2014 - Fukushima health risks underestimated

Extract:

For instance, one street in front of a hospital in Fukushima City “is quite contaminated”, Smitai said, measuring 1.1 microsieverts of radiation per hour. Although this was one of the highest readings, Greenpeace found 70 other places in the city where the amount of radiation recorded exceeded the Ministry of Environment’s long-term target of 0.23 microsieverts per hour.

Most of these areas therefore have “not been decontaminated, and cannot be decontaminated because, for instance, a forest can’t be decontaminated, practically speaking”, he added.

Critics, however, charge that these results were found by averaging the radiation measurements, meaning that individual “hot spots” such as those Greenpeace claims to have found could go unstated.

Extract:

Insect research in this video suggests multi generational genetic damage is occurring, which will get worse with each generation.

Comment:

It is a crime that large numbers of Japanese children are left in these highly contaminated areas, and have not been evacuated.

Criminal that the Japanese government monitoring stations show much lower levels of background radiation than is actually present, to provide a sense of safety, when in fact the environment is highly radioactive.

17.04.2014 - Japan Radiation Embargoed Food List

Extracts:

The Japanese government has been wooing the media with claims that all the contamination in the food supply has miraculously just gone away. This is of course not exactly what is going on.

What is not mentioned is how many foods are still being held back from sale and that they are not just in Fukushima prefecture.

Spot checks won’t catch all contaminated products. Bulk testing can miss a highly contaminated item mixed in with uncontaminated items. Anything below 100 bq/kg is permitted to be sold.

05.03.2014 - Fishing for data in the radioactive waters off Fukushima

Extract:

With help from fisherman and citizen scientists, researchers in Japan and the U.S. are tracking the nucleotides in the ocean creatures who swim in the plume of water tainted with radiation from Fukushima. Their research is part of a long-term effort to figure out when — if ever — certain fish will be safe to eat. Science correspondent Miles O’Brien reports.

Comment:

You continually hear this statement on the news, and in press releases.

“The fish tested well below safety levels.”

Governments around the world raised the safety levels massively, soon after the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster. These safety levels are an outright deception to fool the public. Unless you take the time to do the research, you would not know how deceitful the present actionable, or safety levels are.

Here are just two examples to make this clear.

Europe

http://foodfreedom.wordpress.com/2011/04/04/eu-secretly-ups-cesium-safety-level-in-food-20-fold/

Japan

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oc6FPIK1VaY

Their testing only focuses on Cesium, and conveniently leaves out the other bio-accumulating radioactive contaminants. The fallout from the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster is a dirty mixture of different isotopes, not just Cesium! A lot of these radioactive isotopes are chemically toxic as well as radioactive.

28.02.2014 - High radioactive materials detected in fish

Extract:

The prefectural fisheries association said on Thursday that 110 becquerels per kilogram of radioactive materials was detected in scorpion fish caught in test-fishing off Iwaki City.

The government safety limit is 100 becquerels. This is the first time radiation levels have exceeded the limit in the test-fishing program.

Comment:

Japan’ Cesium contamination safety limit is 12 times less than the USA’s. Even Japans limit is set far to high, particularly for children and pregnant women.

25.02.2014 - Health risk or not? Cesium levels high in hundreds of Fukushima reservoirs

Extracts:

Very high levels of accumulated radioactive cesium have been detected in the mud of hundreds of reservoirs used to irrigate farmland in Fukushima Prefecture, where agriculture is a key industry.

A joint survey by the prefectural government and a branch office of the farm ministry found that the levels exceed 8,000 becquerels per kilogram of soil in 576 reservoirs. In 14 of those cases, the level tops 100,000 becquerels.

The survey covered 1,939 reservoirs, or slightly more than half of the 3,730 in Fukushima Prefecture for agricultural use.

The remaining 468 reservoirs are located outside the evacuation order zones and still supplying water to rice paddies and other farmland. Those areas are mainly located in the central part of the prefecture, including the cities of Fukushima and Date.

However, the Environment Ministry says it has no plans to dredge the reservoirs to remove the contaminated mud.

Myotoishi reservoir in the Takagi district of Motomiya, some 55 kilometers west of the stricken Fukushima plant, had the highest contamination at 370,000 becquerels.

25.02.2014 - Strontium 90 Readings From Citizen Collected Fukushima Samples.

Extracts:

“The detection limits are higher than I would like, at about 10 Bq/g. Even so, I got some good results for some of my existing samples. The sample of black sand from Namie had been reported last year at 1530 Bq/g of radiocesium. The 90Sr level for this sample was 348 Bq/g. An air filter sample taken in June 2011 in Fukushima City was 2792 Bq/filter radiocesium, and 668 Bq/filter 90Sr. These were quantified against a 2700 Bq 90Sr source from Oak Ridge, TN, USA. For these two samples, 90Sr is about 23 % of the level of 134Cs and 137Cs combined.”

17.02.2014 - New Independent Fukushima Food Contamination Results

Extracts:

People in Japan early on realized they needed to take things into their own hands if they wanted to know the conditions around them and what their risk factors were. Citizen labs have been set up in Japan to allow people to test their own food.

While the government in Japan (and elsewhere) have insisted anything below legal intervention levels of food contamination are “safe”, the public and many NGOs have disputed this. Ongoing problems with cesium in children’s urine belies the govt claim that all is ok. Two sets of standards have evolved. The one the government uses and the one the public uses to scrutinize their food supply.

Out of the readings that were frequently positive are citrus fruits, that were found to be contaminated along with persimmons and kiwi fruit. There were also many negative, no contamination findings for foods including those in Fukushima.

Recent Food Testing Results from most recent 2013-2014 tests:

07.02.2014 - Iodine-131 surge in Japan. Strontium-90 nightmare.

Extracts:

New sludge data from Japan shows recent increases in iodine-131. This suggests increases in fission, probably from Units #2 and #3.

It turns out that groundwater from the well at the seaside direction from Unit 2 has a lot more strontium-90 and all-beta radiation than they previously said. It used to be 900,000 Bq/liter, now it’s 5 million Bq Sr-90 and 10 million Bq all-beta.

Applying this ratio yields over 17 million Bq/liter of strontium-90 in the most recent measurement.

Strontium-90 doesn’t start leaking in significant quantities until 1,000 days after the meltdown, which was approximately the time frame from last July. Cesium-137 doesn’t really get going until after 10,000 days.

Extracts:

There is significant contamination in the bottom segment, especially in the pond and the river system, where we can find a very high amount of radioactive cesium accumulated.

Most of the fish caught within the 30 kilometer radius is thrown into the garbage because it is radiated. And TEPCO is paying to local fishermen for it, so that they’re happy and keep silent on that. Some of it though makes it to stores, but only locally.

18.12.2013 - Inside Japan’s battle to prove fish is safe after Fukushima nuclear disaster

Extracts:

MERI screens 200 species every year, including shellfish and seaweed, as well as the more common cod and salmon, from waters as deep as 1,300 feet. Seawater and sediment are also monitored, as are freshwater fish.

A reading of more than 100 bequerels per kilogram triggers an automatic ban. By comparison, the U.S. tolerates much higher amounts of radiation; 1,200 bequerels per kilogram.

Amassing the results of tens of thousands of samples like this, Japan’s Fisheries Agency says ocean and fish contamination has sharply declined since the March 2011 nuclear accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. In the three months following the catastrophe, 53 percent of fish sampled off Fukushima showed radiation levels surpassing the safety limit of 100 bequerels per kilogram. By the following year, the proportion of contaminated fish had halved.

Comment:

The latest research I have seen suggests 5 Bq per Kg of Cesium or less for children and preferably none. If this is the case, then both the Japanese and USA standards are set way to high.

It is not just Cesium and Strontium contamination that should be reported. There are lots of other Isotopes that can be potentially bio-accumulating in this sea food that they don’t talk about.

16.12.2013 - Radioactive cesium levels in Miyagi forest soil up since 2011

Extracts:

In a forest in the town of Marumori closer to Fukushima, the average cesium level of 10 samples of fallen quills was 26,684 becquerels per kilogram in June 2012, but rose to 42,759 becquerels a year later. And the level in soil up to 10 cm deep increased from 721 becquerels to 3,225 becquerels, according to the study.

29.11.2013 - Typhoons that hit Japan each year are helping spread radioactive material from the Fukushima nuclear disaster into the country’ waterways.

Extracts:

Local populations who escaped the initial fallout two-and-a-half years ago could now find their food or water contaminated by the cesium particles as they penetrate agricultural land and coastal plains, researchers warned.

Last year, the radioactive content of Japan’ rivers dropped due to fairly moderate typhoons. But more frequent and fierce storms in 2013 have brought a new flood of cesium particles.

15.11.2013 - Some things learned from the radio chemistry symposium.

Extracts:

Page 57: “At 4810 m of S1, the highest 134 Cs flux was observed in early May 2011. It was notable that the maximum 134 Cs activity and relatively higher flux was observed in late November and early December 2011.”

“The activity ratio of 0.85 reported by TEPCO can only result from an enriched Uranium fission having occurred about 50 hours before the samples were measured or an explosive criticality which occurred 60 hours before the measurements.”

Page 256: “The tritium concentration of the precipitation in Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan, showed the highest annually averaged value of 74.1 Bq/L 1 in 1963, which corresponded to the year of the maximum fallout of tritium in the northern hemisphere.

A dramatic increase in tritium concentrations of 131.6 Bq/L and 99.9 Bq/L was observed in the rainfalls of 9:30-13:40 on 30 May."

 Page 53: “The mean isotopic ratio between Iodine-129 and Iodine-131 at the accident was estimated that 129 I/ 131 I = 26 ± 6 as of March 11 2011.”

"This is in agreement with “31 times as much Iodine-129 than I-131 from Fukushima”.

Page 293: Carbon-14 and tritium were measured in Japanese sewage sludge. C-14 had an activity of 2,000 Bq/kg. This is about 3% that of tritium. But its half-life is over 400 times as long as tritium.

Page 323: “We also studied whether there were influences on 12 C/ 14 C ratios in the plants due to the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (FDNPP) occurred in March, 2011. Although there are many papers reporting the release of several nuclides, there are almost no data for 14 C…

Page 239:  High activities of 241 Pu ranging from 4.5 to 34.8 mBq/g were detected in the J-Village surface soil (0-2 cm) and two litter samples. This finding of high 241 Pu activities in environmental samples after the FDNPP accidnet provided evidence of the release of Pu isotopes from the accident.”

Page 322: “Figure 1 shows correlation between 238 Pu and 137 Cs for six aliquots. The radioactivity of 238 Pu in one aliquot is clearly higher than the others, and the ratio of 238 Pu/ 239,240 Pu of the former is also higher. This result suggests the existence of hot particle of Pu in that aliquot.”

"Cesium-134 and -137, plutonium-238, -239, -240, americium-241, curium-242, -243, -244, uranium-236, are in the black dust. Curium is especially nasty. It is a neutron radiation emitter. It works on the same principle as the neutron bomb. It makes the chemical substances in human cells radioactive."

2013 - Active cesium contamination of freshwater fish in Fukushima and Eastern Japan.

Extracts:

However, contamination levels are possibly higher than the Chernobyl as the cesium is concentrated by the water systems in limitation region.

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.

The contamination is recognized as far as Shizuoka prefecture, 400 km south-west from the plant.

http://www.arirang.co.kr/News/News_View.asp?nseq=149925



05.08.2013 - This is a large database of food testing results for the Fukushima region. Firstly look at the contamination levels that are now classed as safe, for Cesium and Iodine. They are much lower than the elevated levels they set just after the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster, still much to high for children.

Can these test results be relied upon? The Japanese authorities have been caught out numerous times tampering with local monitoring stations, and Geiger counter settings, to show lower readings. Trying to present a much safer environment than is actually present.

Also, the detection levels thresholds seem to be a moving target in this database. It may be because of differences in test equipment sensitivity. This database is only showing test results for Cesium, and Iodine. It does not provide testing information for other possible dangerous isotopes that may be present.

Click on food items, and then set the date range at the bottom of the page. Then Click search to get the food testing results.

Comment

Shocked, really! Anyone who has taken any notice of what has been happening at the Fukushima Nuclear disaster site from the very beginning, would not be shocked. It has flowed into the Pacific Ocean for 28 months now. They use the word leak, to play it down. Their estimate is 450 tons a day of ground water flowing into the Pacific Ocean. This is probably a very conservative estimate! It’s a flood, not a leak! Look at the multiple huge detection reports here, under the Pacific Ocean heading, for some enlightenment of what is truly happening.

07.07.2013 - Food contamination fears still persist in Japan, and will for decades. This short video by Jamie Williams of the New York Times, clearly explains why private food testing has become a necessity to protect families, and children in Japan.

30.06.2013 - Radioactive Iodine I-131 detected in school lunches in various school lunch ingredients from the North Kanto area Japan.

The half life of I-131 is 8 days so were is this contamination coming from? This strongly suggests re-criticality is happening at Fukushima. The Japanese language document listing the I-131 detections, was edited soon after the link was posted.

http://www.city.obihiro.hokkaido.jp/gaxtukoukyouikubu/gakkoukyudyokukyoudoucyourijyou/a120705kyusyoku-sokutei.html


This is the explanation for the editing of the I-131 detection in school lunches document.

"Following up this article.”“Iodine-131″ detected from various school lunch ingredients from North Kanto area” [URL]

Having the detection data widely reported, on 7/1/2013 Obihiro city board of education announced on their website to state Iodine-131 was mistakenly detected.

"They stated probably because the ventilation of the analysis room was not properly operated, the radioactive noble gas Rn-222 was attached to the equipment and the descendant nuclide Pb-214 was mis-detected to be I-131 up to 17.32 Bq/kg, according to the analyzing equipment maker.

They have already changed all the I-131 readings of June to be “Not detected”. They plan to change the I-131 readings in the date of May soon as they finish analyzing as well.""

26.06.2013 - After two years the April 2011 radioactive Iodine I-131 deposition for part of eastern Japan has been released. The maps show contamination by radioactive iodine in the 400 square kilometer area around Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant, and are based on the analysis of aerial surveys done by the US Department of Energy on April 2 and 3 in 2011.

Special Report

26.06.2013 - This scientific report indicates that the amount of long lived radioactive Iodine I-129, released during the early stages of the Fukushima Nuclear disaster, was 31 times greater than the short lived radioactive Iodine I-131. This study does not take into account any radioactive Iodine releases since then.

http://www.terrapub.co.jp/journals/GJ/pdf/4604/46040327.pdf

------------------------------------------------------------------

Reported on the 14th June 2013:

"1.19 million becquerels/kg of radioactive iodine detected on leafy vegetables near Fukushima Medical University in March 2011.  Being aware of this high radioactive iodine detection, Fukushima Medical University distributed potassium iodide pills to the doctors and nurses. The report points out that potassium iodine pills were not distributed to local men, women, and children. This university is located just south of Fukushima City."

http://ex-skf.blogspot.com.au/2013/06/fukushima-medical-university.html
---------------------------------------------------------------------

This would mean that 36.89 million Becquerel/kg of radioactive Iodine I-129 was on leafy vegetables, at a combined total for of I-129 + I-131 38.08 million Becquerel/kg. The bio-accumulation of I-129 poses a serious health problem for animal and human populations. Unlike radioactive Iodine I-131, which has a short half life of 8 days, or an environmental presence of 80 days +, radioactive Iodine I-129 has a half life of 15.7 million years.

Another pre Fukushima Argentina studying indicates that the I-129 will eventually reach the Southern Hemisphere, as it has from other major sources, like the nuclear fuel reprocessing plants of Cape de La Hague (France) and Sellafield (UK).

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0048969712006353

It would be logical to suggest that locations that had large bio-accumulation, or fallout detections of Iodine I-131 from Fukushima, eg. Japan, Southern California (In kelp), San Francisco, Philadelphia, and Europe etc., should be multiplying their detections by 31, to get their fallout amounts of Iodine I-129! (These large Iodine I-131 detection reports can be found at "Radiation Food Lab", and “The Food Lab”.)

I have been informed by a reliable source, the reason the general population was not advised to take, or issued with Potassium Iodine pills, is that there was a worldwide shortage at the time. It was not possible to supply them to everyone, so who was chosen get them at the time?

With this level of long life Iodine contamination bio-accumulating in the environment, the question needs to be asked, is it necessary to take a clean sourced Iodine food supplement for the rest of one’s life?

Iodine supplements are not for everyone. We are all different. Some people taking them can get adverse side effects. No one should take them without medical advice from their doctor.

This is a subject that needs further research.

22.05.2013 - Researchers find high cesium in some Pacific plankton

Extracts:

They detected cesium-134 in plankton at all 10 points. The density of radioactive cesium was the highest at 8.2 to 10.5 becquerels per kilogram in samples collected from waters around 25 degrees north latitude and 150 degrees east longitude. The lowest concentration at any of the 10 points was 1.9 becquerels per kilogram.

The density of cesium in seawater was highest in waters at around latitude 36 to 40 degrees north, the team said.

Comment:

This places some of these detections near Hawaii.

23.10.2012 - Greenpeace Radiation Surveys - Fukushima

Extract:

Expert teams have taken hundreds of radiation measurements on many occasions in towns just outside the 20 km exclusion zone around the Fukushima disaster site and in Fukushima City and Koriyama, 60 km from the disaster. Greenpeace monitoring began shortly after the accident on 11 March 2011. The teams have also tested soil, vegetables, seafood, and sediment.

Extracts:

A year after the nuclear disaster in Fukushima there has not been a significant improvement in protecting the local communities in Japan from exposure to radioactivity. Radioactive materials are still being released into the environment - air, soil and ocean - from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Many citizens still live in areas where the radiation level is dangerously high.

09.03.2012 - Asahi: Iodine-132 not considered in tests showing high thyroid radiation levels in Fukushima residents — Dose could be much greater.

Extracts:

“Levels could have exceeded 100 millisieverts if infants had stayed in a district with a high iodine concentration,” said professor Shinji Tokonami, who led the research team. “The central and local governments need to provide thorough care to protect the health of children.”

“The research is valuable because it is based on measurement data more detailed than the government’s, although iodine 132, whose half-life is two hours, is not considered,” said Yoshio Hosoi, a professor at Hiroshima University’s Research Institute for Radiation Biology and Medicine.

08.03.2012 - Isotopic evidence of plutonium release into the environment from the Fukushima DNPP accident

Extracts:

In addition, a more efficient transfer of 241Am into plants may be expected. A recent study showed that the coefficients of 241Am transfer from soil to wild plants28, particularly to legumes, are 3-5 times higher than those of 239,240Pu. Therefore, it is highly necessary to investigate the distribution and surface activity of 241Pu inside the 20 km zone, where much higher 241Pu could be expected. This is important for the long-term dose assessment of actinides, and will have important implications in the strategy for decontamination procedures.

For soil samples collected in Mito, Chiba, and Kamagaya Cities, although 137Cs activities were significantly higher than the activity level before the accident (Table 1), for example, the Kamagaya soil sample 2 (0-2 cm) collected on the grounds of a Japanese shrine, near the drain pipes from a building roof, had a 137Cs activity of 11429±88 mBq/g.

Comment:

When reading these scientific documents they often use Becquerel per gram (Bq/g) measurements, so you need to multiply by a 1,000 to convert to Bq/kg.

27.05.2016 - Nuclear America: Special Report

Extract:

From the Hanford Site in Washington state to Indian Point in New York, the disastrous conditions at America’s nuclear facilities has been raising concerns over the last year. RT America takes a close look at the state of US’s nukes.

08.05.2016 - Is This The 4th Recent Nuclear Disaster To Strike the U.S.?

Extracts:

In addition to three other nuclear disasters unfolding across the country, a fourth has now arisen. This new disaster is located in Washington state in a facility known as the Hanford site.

One week after 19 workers were sent for medical evaluation as the nuclear waste tank was being transferred because of a leak, 3 more workers are now being reported as injured at the site. According to RT, the workers inhaled radioactive fumes – the same issue facing the 19 previously hospitalized workers. This brings the injured number of workers up to 22.

The Hanford site has reportedly been leaking massive amounts of radiation for more than two weeks. By no means a recent facility, the Hanford nuclear site is one of the original nuclear facilities in the United States, having been part of the Manhattan Project itself. Weapons-grade plutonium was stored at this facility for use in atomic weapons, one of which was dropped on Hiroshima.

19.04.2016 - Chernobyl On The Hudson Causing a Massive Spike in Thyroid Cancer

Extracts:

The people who call Indian Point home have unwittingly lived next to a veritable cancer-generating machine for decades. Life is enough of a challenge without man-made poisons silently infiltrating your body through the air you breathe and water you drink.

There are a staggering number of thyroid cancer victims in and around Indian Point, which have become known as cancer clusters. Groups are speaking out, people are frightened, and New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo, called for its closure:

04.04.2016 - Tribe on front lines of fight over nuclear lab contamination

Extracts:

Pueblo Gov. James Mountain says he’s encouraged that New Mexico regulators, under a revamped cleanup proposal, have identified as a priority a plume of chromium contamination at the tribe’s border with the lab.

The contamination was first detected more than a decade ago, and officials traced it to potassium dichromate used to prevent corrosion inside cooling towers at Los Alamos lab’s power plant. As part of regular maintenance from 1956 to 1972, the chemicals were discharged into canyons below.

11.03.2016 - ‘No plan A’: US unprepared for nuclear crisis as more Fukushima radiation found off West Coast

Extracts:

Now, marine radiochemist Ken Buesseler and his team have detected the highest level to date, roughly 1,600 miles west of San Francisco. The samples are 50 percent more radioactive than other samples collected so far.

Experts at the anti-nuclear watchdog Beyond Nuclear said Thursday that the US still lacks a “reasonable” plan to prevent a similar event in the US and protect Americans in the event one occurs. The group said 30 GE boiling reactors identical to the ones used in Fukushima - the kind “most vulnerable to catastrophic failure” - are still operating in the US.

Article:

https://www.rt.com/usa/335306-fukushima-radiation-usa-nuclear-industry/

Comment:

Ken Buesseler’s assessment does not take into account the hyper sensitivity of embryonic sea life to radioactive contamination. This massive amount of radioactive environment pollution has resulted in the Pacific Ocean food supply crashing! Hence the large number of reports of seals, whales and birds etc., washing up on the west coast of North America, starving to death.

Thanks to Dr. Sternglass for this research paper below. It clearly demonstrates how nuclear contamination from the nuclear bomb testing era caused a significant crash in Pacific Ocean fish stocks. If this was the case then, it would be logical to assume that the Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe is having a similar effect.

Quote:

“The purpose of the study was to determine whether continued atmospheric testing by France and China or potential releases from underground detonations that might unexpectedly escape into the nearby fishing grounds could have detectable effects on the reproduction of fish populations similar to the unanticipatedly severe effects of low level radiation on the human embryo and fetus (2, 3, 4) recently confirmed by independent studies by other investigators (5, 6).“



08.10.1971 - Fallout and Reproduction of Ocean Fish Populations. E.J. Sternglass, Department of Radiology, School of Medicine, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Extract:

Nuclear Fallout causes Fish Population Decline,

As will be shown below, very large declines of fish-populations after low-altitude nuclear tests followed by a gradual recovery to pretesting levels have been observed both in the Atlantic and Pacific, strongly suggesting that the eggs of fish and the developing young are far more sensitive to internal radiation from low-level fallout than had been anticipated, very much as in the case of the human-embryo and fetus.

07.03.2016 - FPL nuclear plant canals leaking into Biscayne Bay, study confirms

Extracts:

A radioactive isotope linked to water from power plant cooling canals has been found in high levels in Biscayne Bay, confirming suspicions that Turkey Point’s aging canals are leaking into the nearby national park.

The study comes two weeks after a Tallahassee judge ordered the utility and the state to clean up the nuclear plant’s cooling canals after concluding that they had caused a massive underground saltwater plume to migrate west, threatening a wellfield that supplies drinking water to the Florida Keys. The judge also found the state failed to address the pollution by crafting a faulty management plan.

02.03.2016 - The Price of Nuclear Weapons and Nuclear Power: The Case of Paducah, Kentucky

Extracts:

The chance discovery of the ooze by plant workers in July led to the uncovering of a burial ground for radioactive debris just north of the plant. The waste was barely hidden under a thin layer of soil in a grassy lot, and was found by the workers when they noticed a tar-like substance in the tracks left by the truck.

The findings appear to confirm serious allegations already made against Lockheed-Martin and Martin-Marietta in a lawsuit filed by the workers and by the Natural Resources Defense Council this past June. The suit accuses the companies of making false statements and claims to the Department of Energy about the plant’s health, safety and environmental record. It says that contaminated waste streamed out of the plant for years, exposing workers to dangerous levels of radiation. Some was allegedly dumped in woods and abandoned buildings in a nearby state wildlife area.

In the latest scare, a couple living about three miles from the plant last week discovered three barrels buried in their back yard. A Department of Emergency Services worker tested the barrels with a Geiger counter and found high levels of contamination on the drums and on the hands and shoes of Jim Hutto, owner of the house.

20.02.2016 - The Atoms Next Door Live Stream Event 2/20 7:00pm CST

Extracts:

This event features a keynote presentation by Helen Caldicott, M.D., and a panel discussion with Robert Alvarez, Denise Brock, Mark Harder, Ray Hartmann and Sam Page, M.D.

Comment:

Helen Caldicott’s presentation covers the serious health effects of being exposed to the toxic chemical brew coming off the burning dump, and from the radioactive dump site.

This presentation by Robert Alvarez provides clear evidence that radioactive contamination has left the site. Independent testing of the local areas affected by this environmental disaster find high detections of Radon, Thorium 230, and Lead-210. In the Robert Alvarez’s presentation, the amount of contamination is quantified in charts created from extensive testing.

At the end of this St Louis community meeting, there is a heart felt plea from a local women who never smoked, and who is in a lot of pain and dying from terminal lung cancer, asking for something to be done.

19.02.2016 - Anti-nuclear activist tours north St. Louis County sites contaminated with radioactive waste

Extract:

“When you inhale radon, it decays into lead 210 and stays there in the bronchus irradiating just a small volume of cells with alpha radiation, very carcinogenic,” she said. “Radon is one of the most potent causes of lung cancer.”

“I’m a pediatrician. Children are extremely sensitive to the toxic and carcinogenic effects of radiation,”she said. “I can’t for the life of me understand why the government hasn’t removed this material, especially if there’s a fire next to this radioactive waste dump.”

“I really can’t get my mind around this as a physician; I don’t know what the government thinks it’s doing,” she added. “It just breaks my heart.”

15.02.2016 - Indian Point Contaminates the Hudson River With Uncontrollable Radioactive Flow

Extracts:

While Entergy focuses attention on tritium, a radioactive form of water and the predominant contaminant leaking from the plant’s cooling system, the actual leak contains a basket of radioactive elements, including Strontium-90, Cesium-137, Cobalt-60, and Nickel-63 according to an assessment by the New York Department of State as part of its Coastal Zone Management Assessment.

In the past, the Coastal Zone Management report states, radioactive releases have been detected at the Indian Point facility from cracks in two different spent fuel pools. Leaks of radioactive liquids from the Indian Point 2 spent fuel pools have reached the Hudson River and have been detected in the groundwater beneath the Indian Point facility.

14.02.2016 - Radioactive Groundwater Contamination Found at All US Nuclear Power Stations: Pipe Failures Endanger Nuclear Power Station Cooling Systems-Environment

Extracts:

Corroding, or otherwise damaged, nuclear power station water intake pipes for cooling could cause a major nuclear disaster. Corroded, damaged, radioactive effluent (outtake) pipes pollute groundwater in a slow-moving nuclear-environmental disaster.

Since 2008, NRC has been collecting data from licensees on groundwater contamination incidents at nuclear power plants that have resulted from unplanned or uncontrolled releases of radioactive material, including leaks from underground piping systems. Based on these data, NRC has concluded that all 65 reactor sites in the United States have experienced a leak or spill of radioactive material into groundwater.

Extracts:

One of the three wells in question, according to Cuomo’s statement, had “radioactivity increasing nearly 65,000 percent,” while in total the company reported “alarming levels of radioactivity” at three monitoring wells.

Cuomo has been pushing to close the Indian Point facility for several years, arguing it is not possible to safely operate a reactor so close to the nation’s largest metropolitan area. Some 20 million residents live within 50 miles of the plant.

31.12.2015 - Radioactive materials spreading from St. Louis landfill - report

Extracts:

According to a peer-reviewed study just published in the Journal of Environmental Radioactivity, there is “strong evidence” that radon gas and water emanating from the West Lake Landfill are responsible for the anomalous levels of a lead isotope (210Pb), created by radioactive decay, in the surrounding area.

After analyzing nearly 300 soil samples from a 200-square-kilometer zone surrounding West Lake, the report’s authors concluded that “offsite migration of radiological contaminants from Manhattan Project-era uranium processing wastes has occurred in this populated area.”

12.12.2015 - Feds acknowledge radiation, chemicals likely killed 396 in Idaho

Extracts:

Drinking water, for instance. Water was contaminated with radioactive tritium, an isotope of hydrogen, which was pumped directly into the groundwater. Levels were as high as five times the maximum federal acceptable contamination level in the 1960s; levels violated the standard when the Environmental Protection Agency and the Idaho Division of Environmental Quality required monitoring in 1987, Thatcher said.

An open-air reactor test in 1965 that had not been made public also likely caused high doses for workers across the site, she said.

10.12.2015 - Study finds higher rates of advanced thyroid cancer in California

Extracts:

According to the study, 35 percent of Californians with thyroid cancer were not diagnosed until the disease had already spread to lymph nodes or other parts of the body, compared with 29 percent of people nationwide.

Comment:

In my opinion, a significant contributing factor to the thyroid cancer increase in California would be the heavy dose of Fukushima radioactive Iodine and Ceasium fallout, which California received after 3/11!

08.12.2015 - “You can get cancer”: Uranium contaminates water in the West

Extract:

Uranium, the notices warn, tests at a level considered unsafe by federal and state standards. The law requires the park’s owner to post the warnings. But they are awkwardly worded and mostly in English, a language few of the park’s dozens of Spanish-speaking families can read.

The uranium gleaned from local water systems is handled like the nuclear material it is – taken away by workers in masks, gloves and other protective garments, said Ron Dollar, a vice president at Water Remediation Technology, a Colorado-based firm. It is then processed into nuclear fuel for power plants, Dollar said.

07.11.2015 - California Shuts Down Commercial Crab Season “Indefinitely” Cites “naturally-occurring toxin” but real culprit is Radiation.

Extract:

However, workers in the California Fish and Game Commission have revealed to SuperStation95 that the real reason for cancelling this $60 million per year commercial seafood season is: Radiation contamination of seafood from the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan.

According to these workers, who requested anonymity because they fear losing their jobs, radiation levels in local crab, especially Rock crab, were so high that officials feared anyone who consumed the crabs would suffer immediate sickness traceable directly back to the seafood. “If people started connecting the dots proving radiation in seafood was making them sick, it would utterly destroy California’s seafood industry in days” they said.

31.10.2015 - SURPRISE! You’re Eating Fukushima Radiation; Bloody Cancerous Tumors in Fish & Seafood

Extracts:

According to the Local Environmental Observers (LEO) Network in Hydaburg, Alaska, they have found strange growths in the flesh or meat of salmon. “We were fishing for Cohos (silver salmon) at the mouth of the Hydaburg River with line and reel.” said Brian Holter, Jr. who said that eight fish were filled up inside with strange growths that were either white or pink in color. “On the outside the fish looked fine.”

Other volunteers from LEO have come across even more disturbing cancerous tumors and bloody lesions on fish. According to another LEO volunteer, Sam Kunaknana, in Nuiqsut, Alaska, for the past few months they have been catching sick fish on Nigliq Channel and upstream from Nigliq Channel to the Colville River. The fish have had bloody lesions and tumors on them.

Extract:

Soon enough, one little Facebook page grew from simply getting back in touch, to the alarming realisation that more than 2700 residents reported rare incidents of illness. This was becoming a cancer cluster of epic proportions: 45 cases of appendix cancer, 184 cases of brain cancer, 315 cases of thyroid cancer, 448 cases of auto-immune disease, and so on.

“The rates of appendix cancer, for instance, which is relatively rare — we see about 800 cases across the nation per year. To find seven or eight cases in one zip code or one small geographic area is rather unusual.”

19.08.2015 - A scary amount of uranium is contaminating the drinking water of 6 million U.S. residents

Extracts:

Uranium toxicity is caused by eating or drinking substances containing uranium. It then enters the bloodstream through the gastrointestinal system and filtered by the kidneys, where it can cause damage to the kidney cells. A study for the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry also found that other potential damage might occur in the reproductive system.

The study found that 78% of the uranium-contaminated sites are linked to the presence of nitrate, a common groundwater contaminant, that stems from chemical and animal waste fertilisers. Nitrate, through a series of bacterial and chemical reactions, oxidizes uranium which then makes it soluble and capable of leaching into groundwater.

18.08.2015 - Natural uranium levels by far exceed proposed limits in two major US aquifers

Extracts:

UNL researchers Karrie Weber and Jason Nolan analysed data from about 275 000 groundwater samples in the High Plains and Central Valley aquifers. According to the results, many residents live less than a kilometer (about two thirds of a mile) from contaminated wells, which by far exceeds uranium guideline limits set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Uranium concentrations found in the aquifers across the High Plains are 89 times higher than the EPA standard proposes with nitrate concentrations greater by up to 189 times. In the Californian Central Valley, the aquifer reported up to 180 and 34 times the recommended EPA thresholds.

78% of the contaminated aquifers were linked to the presence of nitrate that originates from chemical fertilizers and animal waste. Nitrate is most commonly linked to groundwater contamination, and is responsible for mobilizing uranium through a series of bacterial and chemical reactions which oxidize the radioactive mineral, making it soluble in groundwater.

09.05.2015 - US restricts food import from Japan over radionuclide contamination concern

The United States has recently tightened restriction of food import from Japan. According to Import Alert 99-33 issued by US FDA, a list of Japanese food will be banned unless they pass physical examination, which includes milk, butter, milk-based infant formula, and other milk products; vegetables and vegetable products; rice and whole grain; fish; meat and poultry; venus clam; sea urchin; yuzu fruit; Kiwi fruit. FAD indicates that revision to this import alert is due to radionuclide contamination.

http://en.people.cn/n/2015/0509/c98649-8889831.html

Comment:

As far as I can tell, the new US food restriction changes reported in the Chinese paper, does no represent any major policy change by the US government to contaminated food imports from Japan. Here you can find the latest FDA changes to Japanese food restrictions.

29.04.2015 - The evidence that radiation from nuclear reactors causes childhood leukemia

Extracts:

Dr. Fairlie’s thesis is that childhood leukemia is caused by radiation exposure. Period. The data from several fairly recent European governmental studies show elevated childhood leukemia rates within five kilometers (three miles) of nuclear reactors. Past five kilometers, the elevated rates drop off to normal rates.

This, by the way, may be an indication that most U.S. studies of health effects of reactors have taken place over too large of an area-thus diluting the actual effects that could be expected to be found based on the European studies-at least for childhood leukemia. And, typically U.S. studies have been essentially on a circle around a reactor, rather than confined to areas subject to prevailing wind patterns where the largest exposures would occur as was the case with the European studies.

Cows eat vegetation upon which airborne tritium has deposited. They may drink tritium-laced water too. The chart to the right (Click to expand) shows expected tritium levels in cow’s milk caused by releases from refueling at Romania’s Cernavoda reactors. Children then drink the cow’s milk, which itself has become radioactive. Fairlie believes that childhood leukemia begins in utero, by exposure during a woman’s pregnancy, and is triggered by additional exposure after birth.

19.03.2015 - Changes in Congenital Anomaly Incidence in West Coast and Pacific States (USA) after Arrival of Fukushima Fallout

Extract:

Consistent patterns of elevated increases are observed in the west (20 of 21 comparisons, 6 of which are statistically significant/borderline significant), by state, type of birth defect, month of birth, and month of conception. While these five anomalies are relatively uncommon (about 7500 cases per year in the U.S.), sometimes making statistical significance difficult to achieve, the consistency of the results lend strength to the analysis, and suggest fetal harm from Fukushima may have occurred in western U.S. states.

16.01.2015 - Japan-Radiation Test Results: 5th Round - We’ve tested our seafood for a fifth time … and again received very reassuring results

Extracts:

Strontium-90: None detected in king salmon, halibut, or albacore tuna. Sockeye salmon contained 1,760 pCi/kg of strontium-90, which is less than half (41%) of the FDA’s safety limit (DIL) of 4,300 pCi/kg.

“Grains, leafy vegetables, and dairy products are the leading sources of dietary strontium-90 in the U.S. diet, and the concentration in U.S.-grown vegetables typically peaks at 9 pCi/kg.”

My opinion:

It is commendable that this company is testing sea food for radioactive contamination.

I am surprised at the amount of Strontium-90 detected in the Sockeye salmon, considering the other isotopes tested for were below reliable equipment detection limits. The question is why did the Sockeye salmon bio-accumulate so much Strontium-90, and the other fish didn’t? Knowing what they are eating and their migration patterns could answer this question. It may turn out that the Strontium source is not from Fukushima.

Strontium-90 is a poison and does not have any dietary health benefit, at any level of contamination!

From previous research, the Sockeye salmon Strontium-90 contamination could affect Sockeye salmon fertility, and cause a crash in fish numbers. It will also be bio-accumulated up the food chain by all its predators, including Humans.

Nuclear Fallout causes Fish Population Decline Extract:

As will be shown below, very large declines of fish-populations after low-altitude nuclear tests followed by a gradual recovery to pretesting levels have been observed both in the Atlantic and Pacific, strongly suggesting that the eggs of fish and the developing young are far more sensitive to internal radiation from low-level fallout than had been anticipated, very much as in the case of the human-embryo and fetus.

December 2014 - Berkeley Radwatch Site Upgrade

The UC Berkeley Department of Nuclear Engineering has been performing a large range of radiation measurements starting in March 2011, following the releases of radioactive materials from the Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in Japan.

This site represents a summary of sampling measurements from environmental assays from the Bay Area, as well as samples that are used as references of interest.

http://radwatch.berkeley.edu/

Comment:

Data from the former Berkeley Radiological Air and Water Monitoring (BRAWM) activity site has been included in this new site. There are lots of current food and environmental test reports here. The new web site layout makes it much easier to find and interpret, food and environmental test reports.

Extract:

Expansion of measurement capabilities

We are now involving the more sensitive monitoring system of the Berkeley Lab Low-Background Facility; A new and continuous air monitoring station on UC Berkeley campus was installed and we plan to provide near real-time data from this system on our website, including weather data we are collecting at the same location. The goal of this effort is not only to provide the radiation levels to the broader public but to encourage simple science projects with the data.

(My Opinion)

Cesium-137, released from the atmospheric bomb testing era in now referred to as Technically Enhanced Natural Occurring Radioactive Material (TENORM). This is like the an arsenic industry calling environmental arsenic contamination, Technically Enhanced Natural Occurring Arsenic! A poison is a poison no matter what word spin you put on it.

Reports on this site equate internal ingestion of radioactive isotopes to an external dose. Research shows that internal ingestion of radioactive toxins is considerably more biological damaging than external exposure. Also, pregnant women and children are much more sensitive to ingested radioactive toxins!


Current Sampling Data (2013)

Extract:

These samples are mainly part of a measurement campaign that was started in the summer of 2014. They include many fish and environmental samples from around the Bay Area. “ND” means that the radioisotope was in undetectable quantities in the sample.

11.11.2014 - Fukushima Contaminated Food Was Found In US Right After The Meltdowns

Extracts:

One sample of imported fresh fish from Japan intended for sushi was found to have iodine 131. A sample of Koji powder was also found to be contaminated. The koji sample had not just iodine 131 but cobolt 60, radioactive silver, tellurium 132, cesium 134 and cesium 137. Contamination was also found in imported green tea samples and seaweed.

This testing shows a number of things of concern. Contaminated food was being shipped to the US. While these individual shipments from these food companies that hired this one lab for testing were not sent to market, others likely did.

17.10.2014 - Fukushima radiation nearing West Coast

Extracts:

A sample taken Aug. 2 about 1,200 kilometers west of Vancouver, B.C. tested positive for Cesium 134, the Fukushima “fingerprint” of Fukushima.

Further results, which Buesseler will release at a conference Nov. 13, will show offshore Fukushima radiation down the coast into California, he said, including some samples that are closer to shore.

It showed levels of cesium 134, the Fukushima fingerprint, at 2.2 becquerels per cubic meter (Bq/m3).

Levels of cesium 137 were 3.9 Bq/m3. Background levels range between 1 and 2 Bq/m3.

Comment:

These maybe small detected amounts, but bio-accumulation through the food chain can potentially concentrate this by thousands of times.

16.09.2014 - OP-ED: Nuclear plant is polluting our drinking water

Extracts:

• DEP plans to issue an NPDES water pollution permit with dangerous exemptions and loopholes for Limerick’s radiation and cooling tower toxic discharges, and overheating the river.

PA DEP is allowing Limerick to violate federal protective water law and standards. DEP has the power to deny Limerick an NPDES pollution permit renewal. Instead, DEP plans to approve a permit with shocking exemptions. Instead of exemptions from compliance, Exelon, Limerick’s owner, should be required to filter Limerick’s dangerous discharges to meet Safe Drinking Water standards. Exelon is profiting and should be accountable to minimize damage.

• Suffering and health care costs will increase. DEP plans to allow unlimited amounts of Limerick’s broad range of radionuclides and toxic cooling tower chemicals to be discharged into the river every day with up to 14.2 million gallons of wastewater.

15.07.2014 - Fukushima Radioactivity in the Pacific - Nicholas Fisher

(Note: There are sound problems with the first video, the sound does not start until 2 minutes into the video.)

Extract:

Fukushima Radioactivity in the Pacific and Risks to Marine Life and Humans Delivered September 19th, 2013. Fisher and his colleagues evaluated the release of radioactivity from the failed Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan into the Pacific Ocean and the subsequent bio-accumulation of select radionuclides in marine animals. They found that cesium isotopes were accumulated in all plankton samples as well as in Bluefin tuna that transport the cesium from the waters off Japan towards North America.

Points of interest:

1. It is estimated that the 2011 Cesium contamination of Pacific Bluefin tuna near Japan was ~150 Bq/kg. As they migrated from the Western to the Eastern Pacific they excreted most of their Cesium contamination. After being caught in the Eastern Pacific near America they tested ~10 Bq/kg, 15 times less.

2. Their tests also detected radioactive Silver Ag-110M, at 8.4 to 17.9 Bq/kg in the plankton samples.

3. Sample dry weight Cesium bio-accumulation concentration factor was 16 to 22 times for Zooplankton, 71 to 79 times for microscoptic Copepods, and 15 times for small fish.

4. They didn’t have the sophisticated test equipment necessary to test for Strontium or Plutonium contamination.

5. In Nicholas Fisher’s opinion, the chances that any fish would have any Plutonium contamination was small.

Comment:

The nuclear MSM propaganda machine uses a simple external dose model to make out to the public that most of the radioactive contamination is nothing to worry about.

This industry created safety model does not convey the true potential damage that can be caused by ingested radioactive contamination. Eating a Banana with potassium-40 in it is safe. Frequently eating seafood or food with Cesium-137 or Cesium-134 in it can be potentially dangerous, even in small amounts. Pregnant women and children are far more sensitive to radioactive contamination!

Artificially created Cesium-137 and Cesium-134 are radioactive and chemically toxic! Internally ingested Cesium radiates cells with large amounts of radiation, far more than any Potassium-40 decay. As ingested Cesium-137 decays it irradiates cellular structures with enormous amounts of radiation. Irradiation from Cesium-137’s decay daughter Barium-137m, is particularly damaging, because it has a very short half life.

This test chart provides a comparison in radioactivity by weight, between radioactive Potassium-40 and Cesium-137/134.

Potassium has always been in the environment. In actual fact we would die without it. Although artificial Radioactive Cesium has similar chemical properties to Potassium, it is not Potassium! Cancer is not the only illness that can result from the ingestion of these radioactive toxins. Chernobyl research shows if Cesium is taken up in the heart, it can cause heart damage, particularly in young children.

This very informative video, that is just 10 minutes long, discusses the damage very small amounts Cesium-137 and Cesium-134 can do to children and pregnant women.

Comment:

“Nicholas Fisher’s opinion was that the chances any fish would have any Plutonium contamination was small.”

Here are two studies that show fish and other sea life can ingest and bio-accumulate Plutonium. So testing needs to be done!



How Is Fukushima’s Fallout Affecting Marine Life? - May 2, 2013

Extract:

In an experiment in the early 1980s, Fowler demonstrated vast differences in how much plutonium was absorbed from seawater by marine life across a spectrum of taxonomic groups.

Phytoplankton accumulated roughly 10 times as much plutonium as microzooplankton, which took up 100 times more than clams. Octopi and crabs took up about half as much plutonium as clams, but about 100 times more than bottom-dwelling fish.

Hanford, WA Tests Find Plutonium In Fish, Mulberry Trees

Extract:

In addition to plutonium being found for the first time in fish, increased levels of strontium, mercury, beryllium, uranium, and cesium were detected in aquatic creatures. Short and long term effects of this exposure remain unknown, the report states.

http://www.rense.com/general66/dms.htm

Comment:

From previous studies it has been found that in deeper water the Plutonium contamination will stay longer in the water column than in shallow waters.

11.06.2014 - Unbelievable: US Government Promotes Fish Consumption by Pregnant Women and Children

Extracts:

Shrimp, tuna, and salmon all present significant risks for contaminants. Although there are many sources of contamination for fish, Fukushima-caused radionuclide contamination will be a persistent risk for decades.

However, the permissible dose is NOT ‘the safe dose.’ There is NO safe level of exposure to radionuclides and toxic metals.

The permissible dose concept was a compromise position between Atomic Energy Commission scientists and early geneticists who argued any additional increase in radionuclide exposure creates additional risks, especially for the youngest among us.

Women and children should not be eating seafood unless said seafood is tested for elements such as mercury AND radioactive elements, especially tritium, iodine, cesium, strontium, and uranium.

21.05.2014 - Report by Eager Lab Assistants - Estimation of Cesium in Sand and Soil Samples in the United States, 2012-2013

Extracts:

Soil and sand samples were obtained between April 2012 and December of 2013 from a broad spectrum of areas ranging from almost every region in the continental United States.

Results: Twenty-two (22) of forty-eight (48) samples yielded statistically significant detections for Cesium-137. Of those, six (6) yielded statistically significant detections for Cesium-134. Considering sample collection and testing dates with respect to the Fukushima Diachii NPP multiple meltdowns of March 11, 2011, those detections are strongly indicated as resulting from the same due to atmospheric deposition.

30.04.2014 - California Coastal Commission - Report on the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Disaster and Radioactivity along the California Coast.

Extracts:

The levels of Fukushima-derived radionuclides detected in air, drinking water, food, seawater and marine life in California are extremely low relative to the pre-existing background from naturally -occurring radionuclides and the persistent residues of 20 th century nuclear weapons testing.

However, it should be noted that the long term effects of low level radiation in the environment remain incompletely understood, and that this understanding would benefit from increased governmental support for the monitoring of radioactivity in seawater and marine biota and the study of health outcomes linked to radiation exposure.

Fukushima derived radionuclides were first detected in air samples in western North America on March 15, in Western Europe between. March 19 - 23, and had circled the globe within 18 days of the accident.

Radionuclide activities measured in precipitation from these storms at various California locations ranged from about 2 - 20 Bq/L for 131 I, the most abundant isotope detected, and 1 -2 orders of magnitude lower (~0.03 - 1.4 Bq/L) for
132 I, 132 Te, 134 Cs, and 137 Cs.

Comment:

Quote from Report,

“Fukushima Briefing Report 4 Radioactivity Released into the Environment The Fukushima NPP disaster represents the second largest accidental release of anthropogenic radiation to the environment in history, after only the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear power plant disaster in the Ukraine.”

In my opinion, this statement in the report is factually incorrect. All the evidence suggests that the amount of radioactive contamination release from the Fukushima nuclear disaster, far exceeds that of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant disaster. Also, the radioactive contamination from the Fukushima nuclear disaster has not stopped, and it doesn’t look like stopping any time soon!

Quote

“Cesium is also highly bioavailable, but is distributed more evenly throughout the body and is removed more quickly (“biological half-life” of ~ 70 days in humans)”

This 10 minutes long very informative video, paints a very different view on the effects of ingested Cesium. It discusses the serious children’s health issues, very small amounts of ingested Cesium can cause.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9d3I3S99Dc&feature=player_embedded

This report uses the external dose models to explain away internal ingested contamination. The biological dose dynamics of internal ingestion is different to external exposure dose models. This is because of the radioactive isotopic microscopic proximity to living tissue. Most ingested Isotopes concentrate in different parts of the body, because of their chemical affinities. Also, a lot of radioactive isotopes are heavy metal toxins, as well as being highly radioactive. The Nuclear industry propaganda that says it is no worse that eating a banana, or having an X-ray, is nonsense!

29.04.2014 - Radiation level in tuna off Oregon coast tripled after Fukushima disaster

Extracts:

Most of the 3-year-old tuna tested had no traces of Fukushima radiation, but 4-year-old tuna - which likely traveled through the radioactive plume a couple of times - had higher cesium levels.

Since the results did reveal a spike in radiation, though, the researchers will be expanding their study beyond Oregon to test a larger number of tuna across the West Coast.

Comment:

They don’t provide the actual detection levels in this article.

Extracts:

The baby teeth of kids living near the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant contained radioactive Strontium-90 - which can cause bone cancer and leukemia - at levels nearly one-third higher than in the baby teeth of other California kids, says a controversial study released last week.

Studies from France and Germany suggest that kids living within 3 miles of nuclear plants have double the risk of developing acute leukemia as those living farther away, and that the peak impact is on children aged 2 to 4; but the U.S. government’s take has historically been, “Don’t worry, be happy.”

14.03.2014 - “A Slow Genocide of the People”: Uranium Mining Leaves Toxic Nuclear Legacy on Indigenous Land

Extracts:

“It’s really a slow genocide of the people, not just indigenous people of this region, but it’s estimated that there are over 10 million people who are residing within 50 miles of abandoned uranium mines,”

There are an estimated over a thousand in our homelands. But there are estimated to be over 10,000 abandoned uranium mines throughout the whole United States, and it’s primarily within 15 Western states. But the EPA has never done a meaningful inventory on these threats that are really a toxic legacy that impacts us to this day.

11.03.2014 - Fukushima - The Perfect Crime?

Extracts:

Multiple hazardous readings of suspected Fukushima radiation have been detected in air, rain, snow, and surf in California and across the nation. The high radioactivity findings came during tests of air across America, Pacific Ocean surf south of San Francisco and Santa Cruz, rain in Death Valley and nearby Las Vegas, and in the soil of California’s marijuana-growing heartland in Humboldt County.

EnviroReporter.com has also learned that soil in the most marijuana-intensive growing region of California is hot with radionuclides that could have come from nowhere but Fukushima.

Amateur radiation sleuth Michael Van Broekhoven gathered two soil samples from near Willow Creek and from “commercially available top soil in Northern California.” Both samples, collected in April 2013, tested positive for cesium-134 and cesium-137.

The Willow Creek soil sample had 0.962 Becquerels per kilogram (Bq/kg) of cesium-134 and 13.39 Bq/kg of cesium-137 according to the lab gamma spectroscopy analysis done for Van Broekhoven in May 2013 by Cinnaminson, New Jersey-headquartered EMSL Analytical, Inc. The store-bought dirt had even more

Cs-134 with 1.11 Bq/kq though less Cs-137 at 4.10 Bq/kg.

06.03.2014 - China Syndrome Town

Extracts:

China Syndrome Town is a true tale of greed, corruption, and malfeasance that could have real life consequences for the Los Angeles region and its residents.

EnviroReporter.com exposes a new twist on these plots that would keep the Santa Susana Field Laboratory radioactive and chemically contaminated, saving the polluters hundreds of millions. If lab owner Boeing, government agencies, and astroturfers are successful, the toxic land could become Glow in the Dark Park or a new Chumash gambling casino.

Hirsch, an UC Santa Cruz lecturer on nuclear policy, pointed out that the 1959 partial meltdown of the Sodium Reactor Experiment, while smaller in size than the partial meltdown of Three Mile Island twenty years later, spewed out hundreds of times more radiation because the experimental SRE wasn’t fortified against disaster like TMI was with its concrete superstructure.

Rocketdyne Cleanup Coalition member Barbara Johnson began her comments with a reminder of what the fuss was all about. “I have lived since 1970 just below the contaminated site. I have had cancer; my son has had cancer, way too many of my neighbors have as well.” Johnson reminded the DOE of previous health studies that found elevated rates for key cancers in the offsite population closest to the site compared to people living further away.

Comment:

The site is one of the most radiological and chemically polluted places in the USA. It is just 30 miles, or 48 km northwest of Downtown Los Angeles. These excellent articles expose the attempted coverup, and corruption for all to see.

28.01.2014 - First results from crowd funded study shows radioactive seawater from Fukushima has NOT reached the US coast

Extracts:

“The reason why we see such low levels of radiation in these samples is because the plume is not here yet. But it’s coming. And we’ll actually be able to see its arrival,” Buesseler says. “That baseline data is critical.”

The plume is predicted to reach the US West Coast in April 2014 and it will be “detectable but not harmful. ”Samples taken off the coast of Vancouver Island in June 2013 show the plume has reached it, but the observed concentrations are at most 1 Bq/m3. In other words, 7400 times less than the EPA’s maximum concentrations for drinking water so the levels are not harmful for humans or sea life.

My Opinion:

They have done base line testing, which is great. Lets look at the finer details.

The USA EPA recently raised the drinking water safety level from 3 pCi/Liter of Cesium 134/137 to 200 pCi/Litre, which is equivalent to 7,400 Bq per cubic meter.

(Multiply by a 1,000 to get per cubic meter amounts.)
Pre-Fukushima safety level, 3 pCi/ltr = 0.111 Bq/Ltr
New Safety Level, 200 pCi/ltr = 7.4 Bq/Ltr
7.4/0.111 = 66.6

So this new standard is 66.6 times greater than the pre-Fukushima level. It has been a common ploy by governments worldwide to quietly raise the safety levels during events like Fukushima, As detectable levels increase they can tell you everything is OK, because it tested below the new much higher government set safety level.

The organization doing the testing here is independent of government. They haven’t created this new standard the US government has.

Very small amounts of contamination in sea water can bio-accumulate thousands of times through the food chain in sea food. Testing the seafood will provide the important information on bio-accumulation, plus whether it is hazardous for human consumption. Sea food testing is what is needed at present. It may be excellent information for a scientists to know how much contamination is in the sea water. Is your child going to drink sea water? Parents would rather know what contamination is in the seafood, and is it safe for their family to consume!

The plume may not have arrived yet, but the contaminated fish may have, plus significant bio-accumulation could go on for a long time.

Watch this 10 minute short video to get up to speed quickly on food testing, and safety levels. Independent research is suggesting much lower safety levels for Cesium contamination, particularly for pregnant women and children.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9d3I3S99Dc&feature=player_embedded

A lot of food and environmental detection reports tend to concentrate on Cesium detection. This is because it is relatively easy to test for, and detect. If Cesium is present in a test result, there is a possibility that other types of radioactive isotopes are also present but not reported. Fallout is a dirty mixture of isotopes.

2013 Annual Radiological Environmental Operating Report Diablo Canyon Power Plant

Extracts:

Concentrations of tritium were detected in four monitoring wells (stations OWl, DY1, GW1, and 8S3) near the power block. This tritium was evaluated and attributed to rain-washout of gaseous tritium exiting the plant vent system

During these 2011 rain events, Fukushima related Cs-137 was deposited into the Central Coast environs in rain concentrations of 2.4 to 25.4 pCi/Liter. This Fukushima Cs-137 was detected within one sample of monitoring well DYI at a concentration of 2.22 pCi/L in 2013 due to the approximate 30 year half-life of Cs-137

Cs-137 was detected in three samples of market fish (station 2F1 and 7D3) most likely due to rainwater washout of Fukushima Cs-137 isotopes during March of 2011 (ref 2011 DCPP AREOR). For reference, the March 2011 Central Coast rainwater Cs-137 concentrations ranged from 2.4 pCi/Liter to 25.4 pCi/Liter due to Fukushima event fallout.

Various concentrations of 1-131, 1-132, Te-132, Cs-134, and Cs-137 were identified as Fukushima fallout along the Central Coast in March-April 2011.

27.12.2013 - Measurements of Fission Products from the Fukushima Daiichi Incident in San Francisco Bay Area Air Filters, Automobile Filters, Rainwater, and Food.

Extracts:

Monitoring activities in air and rainwater began soon after the onset of the March 11, 2011 tsunami and are reported here through the end of 2012. Observed fallout isotopes include 131I, 132I, 132Te, 134Cs, 136Cs, and 137Cs. Isotopes were measured on environmental air filters, automobile filters, and in rainwater. An additional analysis of rainwater in search of 90 Sr is also presented.

The highest activity found in these samples was that of 131I which peaked at 16 Bq/L on 3/24/2011.

This produced a one sigma upper limit of 8.98 mBq/L for the presence of 90Sr in the rainwater samples analyzed.

Table A.6 . In most of the Pacific Fish samples, 137Cs was present, with the highest activity found in tuna from the Philippines, which had a 137Cs activity of 0.24(4) Bq kg.

Comment:

The chart on page 11 - Table A.7: Chernobyl food measurements from 1988 previously unpublished (formally) from Norman and Harvey [17, 18]. All samples were purchased at retail locations in the San Francisco Bay Area.

This chart shows Chernobyl contamination in honey, goats cheese, beer from a variety of different European countries.

21.08.2013 - West Coast of North America to Be Hit Hard by Fukushima Radiation.

“Last year, scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory and 3 scientists from the GEOMAR Research Center for Marine Geosciences showed that radiation on the West Coast of North America could end up being 10 times higher than in Japan.”

16.08.2013 - "Plume-Gate is PROVABLE. Proof is available to the public in the form of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s Freedom of Information documents." There are lots of photo copied FOIA documents here to back up the claims in this report.

Extracts:

"NOAA tracked a 19 mile long radioactive cloud along the coast of Japan and on at least two occasions TEPCO measured (not modeled) radioactive plumes over 60 kilometers long."

"Evidence of the ‘President’s source term’ and more proof that Obama’s administration knew the seriousness of the situation."

"EPA busted for ‘rigging’ the RADNET monitoring equipment to report lower levels of radiation."

"Moving Navy ships en masse would have been indicative that the situation was worse than Officials were willing to admit."

"From the NRC FOIA documents: Transamerica model shows 4.5 REM to thyroid of infants in California."

"From the NRC FOIA documents: modeling suggests up to 35 REM thyroid dose to children in Alaska and 4.9 thyroid dose to children in Midway." (From the NRC website: .5 REM allowed to the fetus of a pregnant Nuclear Power Plant employee.)

01.07.2013- Aircraft travel is still risky! Look at the levels of Radiation detected in the cabin of this aircraft. My understanding is you would expect around 5x ground level background in a high altitude flight.

2012 - California Department of Public Health Drinking water and Laboratory Branch Reports.

Comment:

These tests of Californian cattle feed, milk and cheese cover the period of 2012. Even in 2012 I-131 is still being detected in milk, which brings up the question.

"Is this contamination from Fukushima, or local Nuclear Power Plants?"

For the feed testing multiply by 1,000 to get pCi/kg, as the test are in pCi per gram. Here is a pCi to Bq converter. So multiply the PCi/grm by 1,000 before putting it into the converter to get Bq/kg.

Extract:

However, the TCEQ would consistently subtract off each test’s margin of error from those results, making the actual testing results appear lower than they actually were. In MUD 105’s case, the utility was able to avoid violations for nearly 20 years, thanks to the TCEQ subtractions.

17.05.2011 - Texas drinking water makes pipes and plumbing radioactive

Extracts:

According to local officials, the contamination comes from years of exposure to drinking water that already tests over federal legal limits for radioactive radium.

“It’s a serious concern,” City of Brady Manager James Minor said. “These pipes have so much radioactivity in them, metal recycling places refer to them as they’re ‘hot.’”

The City of Brady has individual wells that have tested three times above that limit. Nearby “North San Saba” has tested more than four times the EPA limit for radium. The public water system for “Millersview” has wells that have tested 11 times the limit for radium.

“What these data show are the amount of radionuclides in our water are so high that they could cause cancer, birth defects or kidney disease,” said Tom “Smitty” Smith of Public Citizen, a government watchdog group.

2009 - PART II: AP IMPACT: Tritium leaks found at many nuke sites

Extracts:

Tritium, which is a radioactive form of hydrogen, has leaked from at least 48 of 65 sites, according to U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission records reviewed as part of the AP’s yearlong examination of safety issues at aging nuclear power plants. Leaks from at least 37 of those facilities contained concentrations exceeding the federal drinking water standard — sometimes at hundreds of times the limit.

An outlet from Braidwood’s leaky discharge pipe 300 feet from his property poured out three million gallons of water in 1998, according to an NRC inspection report. The couple didn’t realize the discharge was radioactive.

The Scamens no longer intend to pass the property on to their grandchildren for fear of hurting their health. The couple just wants out. But the only offer so far is from a buyer who left a note on the front door saying he’d pay the fire-sale price of $10,000.

23.01.2007- Depleted Uranium Poison Explosions Target US Citizens, By Cathy Garger

Extracts:

Site 300, where these radioactive explosions occur, is only about 40 miles from San Francisco. More than seven million people live in the highly populated Greater San Francisco Bay area. America has been breathing in this toxic, “gene busting” invisible poison since 1945 when Uranium-238, as well as other radioactive materials, were used inside the hydrogen bomb that the US exploded in the New Mexico desert.

Want to make your head spin? Just do the math. If Livermore explodes 60,000 pounds of explosives in ten years? Since the high explosives “tests” began at Site 300 in 1955, that makes 60,000 pounds every ten years, which amounts to 300,000 pounds or 150 tons of radioactive blasts. And that’s at only one of the federal “test” sites - of which there are several.

The explosion of these vast amounts of Depleted Uranium radioactive microscopic particles affect Americans all over the country. We’ve all watched the Weather Channel and observed how in a matter of just a few hours, wind currents carrying invisible particles start at one part of the country and sweep across the map, reaching into entirely different sections of the country in a matter of hours.

In a memo declassified in 1974 written to James B. Conant and Brigadier General L. R. Groves from: Drs. Conant, Compton, and Urey, War Department United States Engineer Office Manhattan District, Oak Ridge Tennessee on October 30, 1943. The 1943 memo also stated that it could be used as radioactive warfare to make evacuated areas uninhabitable, to contaminate small critical areas, and as a radioactive poison gas to create casualties among troops, and to create casualties among civilian populations. It also mentions that,

“These materials may also be so disposed as to be taken into the body by ingestion instead of inhalation. Reservoirs or wells would be contaminated or food poisoned with an effect similar to that resulting from inhalation of dust or smoke.”

In other words, the US Military has known since 1943 precisely what it was doing with regard to the life-destroying use of aerosolized uranium.

Comment:

The more I research this subject, the more horrified I am by the shear evil of the political, military, and scientific leadership, and what they are willing to do to their own populations.

I started to research site 300 because in the last 24 hours (18 October 2014) a poster reported a high radioactive Isotope detections in an air filter downwind of site 300. The present Californian drought maybe creating conditions that are allowing the large amount of radioactive contamination at this site, to become mobilized.

Thanks to a poster on enenews for pointing to this article.

1979 - Tritium in Tucson, Wastes Worldwide

Extracts from the free online book, “Killing Our Own”:

Many of the factories that produce these items are legally permitted to release large quantities of radiation in the course of normal operations. Cobalt 60 fabrication plants, for example, are allowed to expose the public to twenty times more radiation than a commercial reactor.

But routine tests in early June at the Tucson school system’s central kitchen, near the plant, found food with radiation counts 2.5 times above permissible levels. The kitchen regularly fed approximately forty thousand students. Water in cake that had been served to twenty-eight thousand pupils contained fifty-six thousand picocuries per liter; federal standards allowed only twenty-thousand picocuries. Vegetation outside the kitchen tested at levels thirty-six times the legal limit. Radiation, said acting AAEC director Kenneth Geiser, was “in the humidity in the air. Everywhere. And all the time. Cake or bread left on a table gets kind of soggy; it picks up moisture like a sponge-and tritium with it.”

Dr. Michael Gray of the Arizona Center for Occupational Safety and Health reported that a survey showed a “long residency period in the system of very low concentrations of tritium.” Some of the workers, he said, produced urine samples containing tritium levels twenty times above normal. Rates of decay found in the survey suggested that tritium “can reside in the body” not just for the three to six months promised during the crisis, but “for up to ten years.”

Comment:

Tritium is much more toxic than the regulators let on. The tests results presented here reinforce this view. This is important because Fukushima has, and is releasing enormous amounts of Tritium into the Biosphere.

How much pain and suffering did this company’s negligence cause to the workers and thousands of affected families, through serious illness, and premature death?

28.09.2015 - Radioactive cesium-137 from Fukushima now detected off coast of Canada

Extracts:

The Woods Hole researchers tested water samples collected on February 19 from various locations off the coast of Ucluelet, British Columbia, a small town on Vancouver Island. They detected cesium-134 at levels of 1.4 Becquerels per cubic meter, and cesium-137 at levels of 5.8 Becquerels per cubic meter.

According to a 2013 study by the Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center in Norway, the main part of the radioactive ocean plume from the Fukushima disaster is likely to hit the North American west coast in 2017, with maximum concentrations of radioactivity arriving in 2018. The model showed the bulk of the radioactive material from the disaster remaining concentrated along the North American coast at least through 2026.

25.03.2014 - Alberta student’s science project finds high radiation levels in grocery-store seafood

Extracts:

The Grade 10 student from Grande Prairie said she was shocked to discover that, in the wake of the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) stopped testing imported foods for radiation in 2012.

“Some of the kelp that I found was higher than what the International Atomic Energy Agency sets as radioactive contamination, which is 1,450 counts over a 10-minute period,” she said. “Some of my samples came up as 1,700 or 1,800.”

“More than 200 food samples were tested and all were found to be below Health Canada’s actionable levels for radioactivity,” the CFIA states in a February 2014 posting on its website. “As such, enhanced import controls have been lifted and no additional testing is planned.”

Comment:

Same story book reply you get from governments, tell you it is not detected at “actionable levels.”

1. These isotopes are biologically chemically toxic, as well as radioactive.

2. Actionable levels were much lower pre-Fukushima.

Canada Busted Covering Up Spikes In Fukushima Radiation

12.03.2014 - Troubled waters: Nuclear radiation found in B.C. may pose health concerns. Discovery of Fukushima radioactivity raises concerns for local marine life, and the effect it may have on humans.

Extract:

Examination of a soil sample from Kilby Provincial Park, near Agassiz, has for the first time in this province found Cesium 134, further evidence of Fukushima radioactivity being transported to Canada by air and water.

The models suggests that in 30 years, Cesium 137 levels in the whales will exceed the Canadian guideline of 1,000 becquerels per kilogram for consumption of seafood by humans — 10 times the Japanese guideline.

The results raise concerns for aboriginal people who maintain a diet heavy in fish.

“We might expect similar results because the diet of First Nation communities is based on seafood,” Alava said. “Humans at the top of the food web can perhaps see increasing levels in the future.”

05.12.2013 - Canada Busted Covering Up Spikes In Fukushima Radiation.

Extracts:

For 22 days, a Health Canada monitoring station in Sidney detected iodine-131 levels in the air that were up to 300 times above the normal background levels. Radioactive iodine levels shot up as high as nearly 1,000 times background levels in the air at Resolute Bay, Nunavut.

It has now been revealed that data were not released from a Calgary Health Canada monitoring station detecting levels of radioactive iodine in rainwater well above the Canadian guideline for drinking water.

Comment:

Criminal charges should be laid against the people responsible for these cover ups. Communities in the path of these radiation clouds could have taken action to protect themselves and their children, if they had been informed how serious the situation was.

02.10.2013 - Fish tell a different story.

Extracts:

“Two nuclear experts who saw the Straight’s figures said the real cancer toll could be 100 times higher—or 80,000 cancers.”

“The cancer numbers also don’t include other possible health impacts from radiation in the fish, such as heart disease, stillbirths, and genetic damage to subsequent generations.”

“The Canadian Food Inspection Agency briefly tested food imports from Japan.”

“One sample of smoked bonito had 7.7 becquerels of cesium per kilo but it was allowed on the market.”

Comment:

These figures don’t take into account the continual releases from Fukushima that could last for decades, or more.

01.11.2013 - Radioactive cesium detected in stock feed imports from Japan.

Extract:

According to a report by the agriculture ministry, levels as high as 2.3 becquerels of cesium were found in more than 85 tons of assorted feed for livestock. About 10-thousand tons of different types of feeds are estimated to have been distributed so far nationwide.

13th September 2013 - Government says seawater passes safety test.

Comment: If you read further down this article and you find this statement.

“China has banned fish imports from 10 prefectures of Japan, but accepts those from the other regions even though cesium levels are as high as 800 Bq/kg,” the minister said. “Since we import those with 100 Bq/kg or less, Korea has a stronger standard.”

800Bq/kg or even 100 Bq/Kg is not safe! Recent research is suggesting 5 Bq/kg or less occasional ingestion. It is all extra risk no mater what level. Also these tests do not tell you about any other isotope contamination that may have bio-accumulated in these sea food products.

10th September 2013 - Korea may sue Japan for mishandling leaks, of highly contaminated water into the Pacific Ocean.


http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news/biz/2013/09/123_142580.html

Comment: These are not leaks,there has been a flood of highly contaminated water flowing into the Pacific Oceans for over 30 months now. Tepco has provided various estimates ranging between 300 to 600 tons per day.


— Poster FXofTruth on enenews calculated there is far more water flowing into the Pacific, than the Tepco published estimate. This does not include the ground water flowing through the plant!

Water is poured on to a melting core at 30,000 gallons per minute - (scientific estimation during an emergency meltdown)

- 8.3 pounds is the weight of one gallon of water
- 30,000 gallons of water weight 249,000 pounds
- A short TON, commonly used in the US, is equal to 2000 pounds

ONE MINUTE - of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 124.5 TONS of water. (All based on 30,000 gallons per minute)

ONE HOUR - of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 7,470 TONS of water.

24 HOURS - of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 79,280 TONS of water.

1 WEEK - of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 1,254,960 TONS of water.

ONE YEAR - of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 65,257,920 TONS of water.

50 YEARS - of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 3,262,896,000 TONS of water.

100 YEARS - of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 6,525,792,000TONS of water.

1000 YEARS - of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 6,525,792,000,000 TONS of water.—

Now lets x3 melted cores = 19,577,376,000,000 tons of water.


It is logical to suggest, that far more water has and is flowing into the Pacific Ocean, than the estimates provided by Tepco!

15.08.2015 - Kiwis exposed to radiation in seafood - study

Extracts:

Levels of caesium were of minimal dietary concern, but levels of polonium could “contribute significantly to the dietary does of ionising radiation for high seafood consumers, although the magnitude varies considerably depending on the composition of seafood species consumed

They found levels in New Zealand were the same as found in other countries, which suggested the radiation was a worldwide result of global nuclear testing rather than the 2011 Fukushima incident.

30.10.2013 - West Auckland Radiation Monitor sent an email to the New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries.

"Is NZ doing any testing for radioactivity in ocean-run fish?"

https://www.facebook.com/pages/West-Auckland-Radiation-Monitor/367794690000067

They received this report.

Extracts:

Quote Page 9 “Summary”: (This was for imported Japanese tea.)
“All results were well within Codex limits, with the highest results being 76.7Bq/kg for 137Cs and 57.4Bq/kg for 134Cs.
Total Cesium content 134.1 Bq/Kg.”

(The codex limit for these radionuclides is 1000Bq/kg, which applies to foods for a year following a nuclear incident.)

Quote Page 10 “Conclusion”:

“The tea samples tested indicates that there is no concerning levels of radionuclide contamination in food products exported from Japan to New Zealand.”

Comment:

My Opinion:

This New Zealand Ministry of Primary Industries New Zealand testing report , indicates that contaminated Japanese tea that tested above the Japanese 100 Bq/kg limit, was allowed to be sold to New Zealanders! This situation is not just isolated to New Zealand.

Why would any country outside of Japan be using this criminal standard anyway? Japan isn’t even using using it!


A 1000Bq/kg is way too high an international standard for Cesium, Nuclear Disaster or not. Recent research is suggesting 5 Bq/kg or less for children is more realistic, but preferably none! if I knew tea had a total 134 Bg/kg of detected Cesium in it , I certainly would not be using it. In my opinion it is criminal to allow anyone, particularly children or pregnant mothers, to consume tea at this level of contamination!

If Cesium is present, it is very likely other isotopes are also!

March 2015 - Tuna Contamination Report,

This incident reportedly happened six months ago, and unfortunately there was no available sample to test.

In late March I received this email from a contact who has a Geiger counter.

I have removed some information from the correspondence to protect the contacts anonymity.

———————————-

“You have to watch your food like a hawk. My daughter had some tuna in oil….very small tin. I had been warning her. But dad is crazy. I found the tin going into the recycle, it still had a bit of oil in it. So, me being me, I got out my geiger counter and took a reading………it went ballistic.

It just keep climbing and climbing. I didn’t think it was going to stop……It stopped climbing when it hit 38K counts per minute….I didn’t know my bGeigie Nano meter went that high. The oil seemed OK, the tin seemed OK, but a tiny flake of leftover tuna the size of a match head was on the lip of the tin, that is what set it off. Don’t eat ANYTHING from the sea….anymore. That tuna was toxic radioactive nuclear waste, and not food.”

———————————-

38K counts per minute would be around 1000 times background, using this model Geiger counter!

I sent this email to get more information on this very high detection.

Do you still have the sample?

If you are located in Australia, and still have the sample, I could test it, if you posted to me.

If you don’t have it, if you provide the information below, I may be able to source some here, and test it.

In what country was the tuna tinned?

In what country was it purchased?

Here is the reply to my email query.

———————————-

This happened over 6 months ago.

I can only assume it was canned in the USA. tuna in oil. At that time I thought the reading was coming from the oil in the tin….I didn’t notice the flake that was on the outside top edge of the can. I got it stuck on my finger and washed it off. After this, is when I couldn’t get a reading from the tin or the oil again. I realized that the flake which was gone down the drain by then was the cause.

I thought my Geiger counter was malfunctioning at the time, which it never has before or since. The count was going up and it freaked out my son as we watched it climb. The highest reading I have ever gotten until then was 164 CPM off of a milled piece of pine, but at that time I was (and still am) learning how to use the geiger counter.

——————————————-

Comment:

A small number of tests on different brands of tinned tuna have been conducted here recently, and over the last couple years. There was nothing to report from these tests. This is only one community testing lab, and each test takes 24 hours, or more. A large variety of mainly Australian food products have been tested, so statistically the number of tinned tuna tests conducted here at this stage is very small.

It obvious more widespread community and government food testing needs to be conducted.




08.03.2014 - Proven: Pilliga groundwater contaminated by Santos CSG

Extracts:

Documents obtained by The Wilderness Society show that groundwater in the Pilliga has been contaminated by Santos CSG operations.

Uranium levels recorded in the groundwater as a result of CSG activities are at 20 times the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.

The NSW EPA have confirmed the contamination event, but failed to act with any proper legal force, choosing to fine Santos only $1,500 dollars.

On Friday, EPA chief environmental regulator Mark Gifford confirmed the contamination was caused by water leaking from the pond and that lead, aluminium, arsenic, barium, boron, nickel and uranium had been detected in an aquifer at levels ”elevated when compared to livestock, irrigation and health guidelines’

Comment By Lock the Gate:

Uranium levels recorded in the groundwater as a result of CSG activities are at 20 times the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines. It is the nightmare that the communities of the north west dreaded, and we hope that the contamination is contained and does no harm. Groundwater is the lifeblood of towns and rural businesses and the worst fears of local farmers are being realised.

Extracts:

“To describe the UKs nuclear waste site as a ’Repository’ is putting a spin on the UKs main nuclear dump for ’low level’ waste”, the letter states. “There is controlled discharge direct to the Irish Sea not to mention run off to the Drigg Stream and River Irt.

“Discharges to the air of radioactive gases are ongoing. According to the British Geological Society the Drigg site is above a regional aquifer. It is also likely to be destroyed by coastal erosion in 500 to 5,000 years (computer modelling can be wrong either way). Much of the waste is long lived and high risk.”

The nuclear site, already one of the most dangerous and contaminated in Europe, could be inundated by sea water within a century.

14.04.2015 - Radioactive Fukushima food could be hitting UK shops through safety loopholes

Extracts:

Security experts warned the UK’s food import regulations are not strong enough to prevent products contaminated with radiation from entering the country.

Contaminated products such as tea, noodles and chocolate bars have already been exported from Japan by fraudsters using false labels.

An investigation by the Independent newspaper discovered there is a risk such food may have already arrived in the UK due to loopholes in safety regulations.

01.01.2014 - Uranium - the ‘demon metal’ that threatens us all.

Extracts:

In 2006 I was commissioned as an expert in a legal case involving 9 children in Los Angeles who had developed the rare eye cancer retinoblastoma shortly after birth. They lived in the north west of the city, downwind from the Santa Susana Field Laboratory (SSFL) a nuclear site involved in research into reactor development by an outfit called Rocketdyne - a subsidiary of Boeing.

Fallujah Study - The results showed an enormous increase in cancer, and this was most clear for in children (0-14) where the rate was 12.6 times the expected and in leukemia in young adults 0-34 where the rate was 38 times the expected.

The UK Gulf veterans are now in their 40s and are beginning to develop cancer. There are studies showing that US veterans have had children with birth defects.

18.10.2013 - First Tuesday Program aired on the 01 November 1983. Windscale: The Nuclear Laundry. Looks at the finding of childhood cancer excesses in a village called Seascale. 1 Mile from the Sellafield Reprocessing facility.This 30 year old documentry lifts the lid on the shocking environmental contamination being released by the Sellafield nuclear fuel reprocessing plant, on the Cumbrian coast.

Extracts:

Way above average childhood cancers in local villages near the plant.


Plutonium found in household vacuum cleaner dust collected from local sea side cottages, on the coast near Sellafield .

1,000,000 gallons a day of liquid radioative waste following into the Irish sea, contaminating the food supply of communities all the way up the Irish and Scotland coastline, plus the North Atlantic Ocean.

Plutonium and other contaminants blown many miles inland from the contaminated coast line.

Major leaks and lots of acidents at the plant over its history of operation.


Comment:

For centuries to come this radioactive contamination will affect future generations, and the environment. Criminal that they have been allowed to do this!

04.03.2013 - House of Commons Energy and Climate Change Committee, Sixth Report of Session 2012-13.

Extracts:

2.3 Other work has demonstrated that insoluble radionuclides (such as those produced by the irradiation of uranium and other artificial elements), discharged to sea from the Sellafield site, can also travel hundreds of kms from source. Radio nuclides, such as Plutonium 239 (with a half life of 24,110 years), adsorb strongly to the outer surface of particulate matter suspended in the water column wherein they are available for transport in the water column (over extended distances and time scales) and subsequent deposition into fine sediment deposits such as estuarine and coastal mudflats and salt marshes. (Ref 5)

2.4 The 2009 monitoring of Irish Sea sediments, records the presence of the Sellafield derived actinides Plutonium, Americium and Curium isotopes in fine sediment deposits (salt marshes and mudflats) on the Irish Sea coasts of Cumbria, Lancashire, S.W. Scotland, North Wales and Northern Ireland. (Ref 6)

UK Marine monitoring reports invariable allude to the detectable presence of Sellafield derived Plutonium as far away as the Bristol Channel and the Southern North Sea.

2.5 Thus there is no doubt that both soluble and insoluble radio nuclides discharged to sea are physically adapted to being transported for:
(a) extensive time periods; and
(b) over extensive distances from point of discharge

21.02.2014 - EU to relax regulations on Japanese food imports.

Extract:

“The European Union is preparing to relax regulations on Japanese food imports, except for products from nuclear disaster hit Fukushima Prefecture.

The EU requires radiation checks on food products from Tokyo and 9 other prefectures, mostly in northern Japan. The procedures were implemented following the 2011 nuclear accident at the Fukushima Daiichi plant.

Officials at the European Commission, the EU executive body, said on Friday that from April it will no longer require inspections on food products made in Tokyo and adjacent Kanagawa Prefecture.

They also said no inspection will be needed for vegetables and livestock products from places other than Fukushima.
But the EU will newly require checks on mushrooms and bamboo shoots produced in Akita and Yamagata Prefectures.

The new rules are expected to take effect on April 1st after being approved by the commission."

Comment:

In my opinion the European food testing requirements for Japanese food has been a deception from the beginning, and still are.

This article explains clearly how this worldwide Governmental deception works, using Europe as an example. “European regulators raised the European food safety levels by 20 to 30 times after the Fukushima Nuclear disaster.”

http://sccc.org.au/pages/The-Food-Lab.html#governments_have_deceived_the_public

Example of this safety regulation system being used in New Zealand.

01.02.2014 - The Mob Is Secretly Dumping Nuclear Waste Across Italy And Africa

Extracts:

It gets worse. These companies often dumped all over the region — including the coastlines of Somalia. Reports of a guns-for-dumping scheme circulated. A tsunami in 2005 turned up hundreds of barrels along the shore, and the next year, the UN confirmed that the waste included “uranium radioactive waste, lead, cadmium, mercury, industrial, hospital, chemical, leather treatment and other toxic waste.”

Waste containers were shipped away following a path of least resistance and weakest governance, ending up in remote areas of countries such as Equatorial Guinea, Lebanon, Somalia and the Congo. Toxic waste was dumped on Nigerian and Haitian beaches.

Last month, Interpol published a warning about millions of tons of toxic e-waste arriving in Africa and Asia from developed countries,

22.01.2014 - Italian mothers battle the mafia and toxic waste

Comment:

In this article they don’t mention that nuclear waste is a big component of this deadly trade. The article above this one, “The Mob Is Secretly Dumping Nuclear Waste Across Italy and Africa” provides information on the nuclear waste dumping, plus how deadly it is to the communities affected by it. In a lot of regions affected, the water now is not safe to drink!

Extracts:

They traveled to Rome from their towns around Naples as representatives of some 150,000 mothers who sent Italian President Giorgio Napolitano postcards with photos of their dead or cancer-stricken children in the hope that he might put an end to the environmental crimes that have been perpetrated in their region
for decades.

Investigators in Italy have long known that millions of barrels of toxic by-product from industries in Italy and Europe were given to the Camorra, who charged a fraction of the official disposal rate.

Residents living near the landfills and local doctors blame the unusually high cancer rates in the area on the toxic dump landfills, claiming the number of people diagnosed with cancer there is four times the national average.

The mothers of thousands of the impacted children are petitioning the president to kick-start the clean-up and reclaim the area.

10.01.2014 - More Cesium 137 Found In Gourmet & Organic European Jam Brands.

Extract:

The jars in Japan that were tested were over 140 bq/kg in cesium 137 and tested by two labs.

Comment:

These brands are sold in Europe, Canada, the USA, Asia, and possibly other locations. The research I have seen suggests that 5 Bq/kg for children should be the maximum allowed for Cesium, and preferably none.

December 2013 - List Of European Countries With Radioactively Contaminated Food, Map Of Radiation Contaminated Regions

Extracts:

It seems, however, that these regulations and guidelines are not followed by all EU countries. In 1998, the BBC reported that the European Commission received 19 complaints from Austria, Germany and France about radioactive contaminated mushrooms from Poland, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine and Romania.

This action was taken because some mushroom shipments had contamination levels of several thousand becquerel per kilogram, far above a safe limit.

01.11.2013 - (Italy) Toxic nuclear waste dumped illegally by the Mafia is blamed for surge in cancers in southern Italy.

Extracts:

In secret out-of-court testimony he told lawyers how the Casalesi clan ran ‘a military style operation’ dumping millions of tonnes of waste on farmland, in caves, in quarries and even on the edge of towns.

Schiavone revealed: ‘We buried 520 drums of toxic waste in a specially dug quarry near the town of Pure Villaricca. But we also did it in very populated places, outside towns- at Casal di Principe behind the sports field at the edge of the motorway.’

He added: ‘We disposed of 70 or 80 trucks from the north, millions and millions of tonnes.

‘To clean it up it would cost the entire Italian budget for a year I think.

12.07.2013 - This very detailed 1992 fisheries report for the Channel Islands, shows large amounts of contamination of sea food in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of France. 

In light of recent research, I feel this report greatly underestimates the risks of consuming these levels of radioactive isotope contamination. For risk assessment they use the physics based external  dose rate model for both external, and internal exposure. This greatly underestimates the risks from internal exposure. They should use the biological model for risk assessment for internal exposure.  The source of this environmental contamination is dumping of nuclear waste in the Atlantic Ocean, Nuclear Power Stations, and the French De La Hague nuclear reprocessing plant.

Starting at page 13, they start to provide the actual amounts of individual isotopes detected in sea food, and the environment. In my opinion these levels of detection are very significant for some isotopes, and would pose a significant risk if consumed. These isotopes could be consumed collectively, so you will  get a biological toxicity multiplying effect, plus most of these isotopes are heavy metals, as well as radioactive. It raises very serious questions about the safety of European sea food. The detected isotope levels revealed in this study, could have increased considerably since this study was completed.

Thorium, a radioactive and highly carcinogenic heavy metal used in military targeting systems has been found in Sardinian honey, milk, and other areas of the food chain.

In a village with 150 inhabitants, 12 people died from leukemia in 2002, with 63 in the past decade. In the previous decade (1990 - 2000), there had been no cases of leukemia or lymphoma among this same population. 65% of workers on seven of twelve farms located near the Quirra base are suffering from serious cancer. Rates of lymphoma, thyroid cancer and autoimmune diseases are also unexpectedly high.

June 2010 - Greenpeace Report “The toxic ships The Italian hub, the Mediterranean area and Africa”
Extracts:

Ocean dumping takes on an even more sinister profile in the Mediterranean region where over two decades Italian prosecutors have looked into a number of suspicious deep-water sinkings. They suspect that Italian and foreign industries have acted in league with organised crime and possibly government agencies, to use the Mediterranean as a dumping ground. Vessels carrying suspicicous cargo sunk in fair weather, sent no mayday and their crew were never to be seen again. None of these sunken vessels have yet been located.

In the 80s and 90s Switzerland, home to the secretive banks made infamous by spy-thriller films and books, was obviously on the forefront in arranging shipments of millions tons of hazardous waste to developing countries. A number of Swiss lawyers, trustees, bankers and traders, contacted European industries to get their waste out of sight at the lowest price. Africa was the favourite destination.

Since the fall of Siad Barre allegations abounded that foreign companies and governments were taking advantage of the collapse of the Somalian state by using the nation’s waters and land as a waste dump.

In early 2005, several international media sources reported the waves hitting Somalia as a consequence of the 2004 earthquake in the Indian Ocean, besides killing hundreds of people, washed ashore radioactive and toxic waste dumped in the country in the early ‘90s. “Initial reports indicate that the tsunami waves broke open containers full of toxic waste an d scattered the contents.

November 2009 - Chernobyl’s radioactive contamination of food and people.

Extract:

Up until 1991 the United States imported food products with measurable amounts of Chernobyl radioactive contamination, mostly from Turkey, Italy, Austria, West Germany, Greece, Yugoslavia, Hungary, Sweden, and Denmark. These products included juices, cheeses, pasta, mushrooms, hazelnuts, sage, figs, tea, thyme, juniper, caraway seeds, and apricots. In Gomel, Mogilev, and Brest provinces in Belarus 7-8% of milk and 13-16% of other food products from small farms exceeded permissible levels of Cs-137, even as recently as 2005-2007.

From 1995 to 2007, up to 90% of the children from heavily contaminated territories of Belarus had levels of Cs-137 accumulation higher than 15-20 Bq/kg, with maximum levels of up to 7,300 Bq/kg in Narovlya District, Gomel Province. Average levels of incorporated Cs-137 and Sr-90 in the heavily contaminated territories of Belarus, Ukraine, and European Russia did not decline, but rather increased from 1991 to 2005. Given that more than 90% of the current radiation fallout is due to Cs-137, with a half-life of about 30 years, we know that the contaminated areas will be dangerously radioactive for roughly the next three centuries.

12.12.2015 - India’s nuclear industry pours its wastes into a river of death and disease

Extracts:

When Ghosh’s team seven years ago collected samples from the river and also from adjacent wells, he was alarmed by the results. The water was adulterated with radioactive alpha particles that cannot be absorbed through the skin or clothes, but if ingested cause 1,000 times more damage than other types of radiation. In some places, the levels were 160 percent higher than safe limits set by the World Health Organization.

“It was potentially catastrophic,” Ghosh said in a recent interview. Millions of people along the waterway were potentially exposed.

What the professor’s team uncovered was hard evidence of the toxic footprint cast by the country’s secret nuclear mining and fuel fabrication program. It is now the subject of a potentially powerful legal action, shining an unusual light on India’s nuclear ambitions and placing a cloud over its future reactor operations.

01.04.2016 - Irradiated: Here’s how the US and its allies poisoned Iraq with radioactive and chemically toxic weapons

Extracts:

Scott Ritter, a former Marine Corps officer in Iraq and United Nations weapons inspector, told me, “The irony is we invaded Iraq in 2003 to destroy its non-existent WMD [weapons of mass destruction]. To do it, we fired these new weapons, causing radioactive casualties.”

Keith Baverstock, who headed the radiological section of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Center of Environment and Health in the 1990s, explained why: When uranium weapons explode, their massive blasts produce gray or black clouds of uranium oxide dust particles. These float for miles, people breathe them, and the dust lodges in their lungs. From there, they seep into the lymph system and blood, flow throughout the body, and bind to the genes and chromosomes, causing them to mutate. First, they trigger birth defects. Within five or more years, cancer. Organs, often the kidneys, fail.

Extracts:

The official environmental authority in the Iraqi governorate of Missan, which is located 390 kilometres away from Baghdad, has announced the discovery of dangerous radioactive contamination that is attributed to the 2003 US-led war on Iraq.

Abdel Khalek Mahmoud, an environmental expert, told the New Arab that “radioactive contamination in Iraq is divided into two types: The first, which is rarely found in Iraq, is high-level radioactivity that can be discovered by electronic devices. The second is low-level radioactivity, which is more difficult to discover. It was caused by the waste of depleted uranium that was used by the US in its 2003 war on Iraq. This is abundantly found and it has caused a lot of lethal damage in the country.”

30.06.2015 - Is waste from Israel’s nuclear programme poisoning Palestinians?

Extracts:

An Israeli documentary film named The Dark Secret of the Dimona Reactor investigated the facility. The film revealed information about Israelis affected by the reactor and the environmental damage it has caused to the surrounding area.

“The only places found to have higher concentrations than in the West Bank were after the explosion of the Chernobyl reactor in the Ukraine in 1986 and in Fukushima in 2012. These two cases had the highest recorded levels of Cesium-137 in the world, which means the southern West Bank has the highest levels of Cesium-137 in the world if we exclude areas that have witnessed nuclear disasters,” added Thabayneh.

Thabayneh revealed the greatest danger to humans from Caesium-137 is cancer. Other elements such as uranium and polonium aso pose great dangers to children, and can cause cancer and affect the reproductive system, causing infertility in both men and women and cause birth defects and repeated miscarriages.

2000 - The environmental impact of the Sellafield discharges

Extracts:
Time-series analyses of western Irish Sea surface sediments have shown that, while 137Cs concentrations have fallen by a factor of between 2 and 5 since their peak in 1980-81, 239,240 Pu concentrations have remained relatively constant.

Presently, concentrations of radionuclides such as 137Cs, 239,240 Pu and 241 Am in muddy sediments near the outfall are in the ranges 500-1,500 Bq kg , 500-600 Bq kg and 700- 900 Bq kg.

At the present time, typical fresh weight concentrations of 137Cs in whitefish, lobster, crab, winkles and mussels sampled in the Sellafield coastal area are 7 Bq Kg-1, 3.4 Bq Kg-1, 2.9 Bq Kg-1, 12 Bq Kg-1 and 4 Bq Kg-1 , respectively, while the corresponding Pu-α concentrations are 0.02 Bq Kg-1, 0.54 Bq Kg-1, 0.54 Bq Kg-1, 13 Bq Kg-1 and 11 Bq Kg-1, respectively (Jackson et al., 2000)

The 137Cs activity discharged from Sellafield has now left the Irish Sea, and has resulted in a significant increase in the 137 Cs inventory in the North Atlantic.

27.02.2016 - Reindeer are strangely radioactive 30 years after Chernobyl

Extracts:

Many worked as boazovazzi, or “reindeer walkers,” herding the animals over hundreds of miles of terrain and selling their meat come slaughter season. The reindeer were a cultural and economic centerpiece for the Sami people.

Chernobyl poisoned their way of life by turning the reindeer radioactive. Thirty years later, the reindeer walkers are still devastated.

Lichen has no roots system and absorbs nutrients from the air, making it well suited to sponge up all that cesium-137. The reindeer gorged themselves and became “very radioactive.”

06.10.2014 - Radioactivity in Norway’s reindeers hits high

Extracts:

In September, 8200 becquerel per kilo of the radioactive substance Caesium-137 was measured in reindeer from Våga reinlag AS, in Jotunheimen, central Norway.

In comparison, the highest amount at the same place was 1500 becquerel among the reindeer in September 2012.

Lavrans Skuterud said: “This year, there has been extreme amounts of mushroom. In addition, the mushroom season has lasted for a long time. And the mushroom has grown very high up on the mountains.”

Especially the gypsy mushroom (Cortinarius Caperatus) has been a problem. This is a good food mushroom, both for people and animals. But it has one bad trait: It can absorb a lot of radioactivity.

From 1946 to 1970, federal records show, 55-gallon drums and other containers of nuclear waste were pitched into the Atlantic and Pacific at dozens of sites off California, Massachusetts and a handful of other states.

How many dump sites are there? Over the years, federal estimates have ranged from 29 to more than 60.

20.12.013 - USS Calhoun County sailors dumped thousands of tons of radioactive waste into ocean.

Extracts:

For up to 15 years after World War II, the crew of Albernaz’s ship, the USS Calhoun County, dumped thousands of tons of radioactive waste into the Atlantic Ocean, often without heeding the simplest health precautions, according to Navy documents and Tampa Bay Times interviews with more than 50 former crewmen.

Not all of them sank. A few pushed back against the frothing ocean, bobbing in the waves like a drowning man. Then shots would ring out from a sailor with a rifle at the fantail. And the sea would claim the bullet-riddled drum.

20.11.2013 - This documentary discusses the effects of ocean dumping of radioactive waste and trash on the health of people living on the local coasts, like the Irish Sea and the Baltic Sea, which is the most radioactive sea in the world.

The documentary focuses on the British sea dumping in the English Channel Hurd Deep about 12 miles north of the Channel Island of Alderney. Alderney is also subject to releases to the sea from the French Nuclear Reprocessing Plant at Cap de la La Hague 12 miles East of the small island.

22.07.2009 - Search for Containers of Radioactive Waste on the Sea Floor

Extracts:

Between 1946 and 1970, approximately 47,800 large containers of low-level radioactive waste were dumped in the Pacific Ocean west of San Francisco. These containers, mostly 55-gallon (208 liter) drums, were to be dumped at three designated sites in the Gulf of the Farallones, but many were not dropped on target, probably because of inclement weather and navigational uncertainties.

Visual observations revealed that the condition of the barrels ranged from completely intact to seriously deteriorate.

09.05.2001 - Newly released documents indicate the Navy dumped far more nuclear waste than it’s ever acknowledged in a major commercial fishery just 30 miles west of San Francisco. Why won’t the government even study the Farallon Islands Nuclear Waste Site?

Extracts:

The Navy’s own documents, declassified at the request of SF Weekly, show that significant amounts of the nuclear bomb component plutonium, which has a half-life of 24,000 years, and similarly long-lived “mixed fission” products were used at the nuclear laboratory at Hunters Point.

An entire radioactive ship, the 10,000-ton aircraft carrier USS Independence, is believed to have been sunk in or near the waste site. The carrier itself was clearly “hot” when it went down. It had been used as an atomic bomb target and a nuclear laboratory, and it was packed full of fresh fission products and other radiological waste at the time it sank.

The simple truth is that no one can say with any degree of certainty whether the Farallon Islands Nuclear Waste Site and the fish taken there are safe, because no one has fully studied them.

04.12.2015 - Fukushima Pacific Plume Reaches Predicted Levels

Extract:

“Scientists monitoring the spread of radiation in the ocean from the Fukushima nuclear accident report finding an increased number of sites off the US West Coast showing signs of contamination from Fukushima. This includes the highest detected level to date from a sample collected about 1,600 miles west of San Francisco. The level of radioactive cesium isotopes in the sample, 11 Becquerel’s per cubic meter of seawater (about 264 gallons), is 50 percent higher than other samples collected along the West Coast so far,”

14.09.2015 - Radioactivity In Our Ocean: Fukushima & Its Impact On The Pacific - Vancouver Aquarium

Extract:

The following presentation is for those interested in the most recent, scientifically rigorous, monitoring data related to the impact of the Fukushima Dai-ichi disaster on the health of North Pacific Ocean ecosystem and inhabitants of western North America.

Comment:

Longer term Chernobyl research indicates that very small amounts of Cesium contamination can cause serious health issues for children, and on the human embryo and fetus. The levels that can cause harm are much much less than the post Fukushima regulatory limits set by Japan, the USA, Canada, and other world governments!

This very informative video that is only 10 minutes long, explains how even very small amounts of radioactive contamination can be harmful.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9d3I3S99Dc&feature=player_embedded

Using the external dose models to evaluate risk from internal ingestion of chemically toxic and radioactive contaminants, is poor science in My opinion: Any increase in radioactive contamination in food and the environment significantly increases the risk of a serious illness developing, particularly for children and pregnant women, who are far more sensitive. There is no safe level of contamination. After the Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe, governments around the world increased acceptable contamination levels by a huge margin, to protect the nuclear industry!

This excellent video by Aluminum Studios explains “Becquerels” and Japan’s changing “safety” standards after Fukushima, for radiation in food and water. It paints a very different picture to the commentary on the new government safety levels in the “Fukushima & Its Impact On The Pacific”, video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oc6FPIK1VaY

Large amounts of Tritium are also being released from Fukushima into the Pacific Ocean. It is also being made out to be relatively harmless. This 15 minute video brings up a lot of independent research on the dangerous biological effects radioactive Tritium releases. Tritium is something to be very concerned about!

Extract:

Some groups in the Pacific Northwest area have been able to collect more frequent samples in order to attempt to detect the radioactivity when it arrives in those locations. Below is a table showing the results of these measurements. So far, no samples have shown the presence of Cs-134, the radioactive isotope that would unambiguously point to Fukushima as a source.

14.09.2015 - TEPCO releases first batch of decontaminated Fukushima groundwater to sea

Extracts:

TEPCO’s standard is set at 1 becquerel of radioactive cesium per liter of decontaminated groundwater, 3 becquerels for elements that emit beta rays and 1,500 becquerels for tritium-a substance which is very hard to treat.

As for now, the utility plans to pump 100 to 200 tons of groundwater daily, but will increase the volume to 500 tons if it does not encounter any problems with the decontamination facilities.

12.09.2015 - Bags of tainted waste swept into Fukushima river during torrential rain

Extracts:

FUKUSHIMA-Seven sites for radioactive waste generated from the Fukushima nuclear crisis were submerged during torrential rain in eastern Japan on Sept. 11, raising fears over a possible radiation spill into the environment.

Floodgates normally block tainted water from reaching the ocean from drainage ditches, but the torrential rains overwhelmed the gates twice in the pre-dawn hours of Sept. 9 and Sept. 11, the plant operator said.

11.09.2015 - Japan floods: More than 100,000 flee after torrential rain unleashes flooding, people rescued from roofs in Joso City.

Extract:

The torrential downpour has exacerbated a contaminated water problem at the Fukushima nuclear plant as it overwhelmed the site’s drainage pumps, sending hundreds of tonnes of contaminated water flowing into the ocean, a spokesman for operator Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) said.

Comment:

In torrential downpours like this, massive amounts of radioactive contamination are washed into the Pacific Ocean from all the local rivers, not just from the Fukushima Nuclear Plant Catastrophe site. It also threatens the structural integrity of the already damaged nuclear reactor buildings and damaged fuel pools, at the site.

This previous 2011 study found that large amounts of cesium flowed into the Pacific Ocean through the local rivers systems, after a 2011 typhoon. In a 12-month period, the amount of cesium that reached the ocean was about 10 trillion becquerels, almost the same as the figure for cesium that directly flowed into the ocean from the crippled plant during the same period.

03.07.2015 - This dome in the Pacific houses tons of radioactive waste - and it’s leaking

Extracts:

The Runit Dome in the Marshall Islands is a hulking legacy of years of US nuclear testing. Now locals and scientists are warning that rising sea levels caused by climate change could cause 111,000 cubic yards of debris to spill into the ocean.

Brackish water pools around the edge of the dome, where sections of concrete have started to crack away. Underground, radioactive waste has already started to leach out of the crater: according to a 2013 report by the US Department of Energy, soil around the dome is already more contaminated than its contents.

In total, 67 nuclear and atmospheric bombs were detonated on Enewetak and Bikini between 1946 and 1958 - an explosive yield equivalent to 1.6 Hiroshima bombs detonated every day over the course of 12 years. The detonations blanketed the islands with irradiated debris, including Plutonium-239, the fissile isotope used in nuclear warheads, which has a half-life of 24,000 years.

26.04.2015 - Fukushima Uni “800,000,000,000,000 Bq of Cs-137 to reach West coast of North America by 2016″

Extract:

Prof. Aoyama from Fukushima University Institute of Environmental Radioactivity reported that 800 tera Bq (800,000,000,000,000 Bq) of Cesium-137 is going to reach West Coast of North America by 2016. The amount to reach of other nuclides such as Cs-134 and other nuclides are not officially announced.

This is 5% of the total Cs-137 amount discharged to the Pacific.

Comment:

This is only the tip of the iceberg. It is not just Cesium-137 contamination flowing into the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima, there is also a toxic brew of other radioactive isotopes mixed with it. This toxic brew is killing the Pacific Ocean, hence the unprecedented number of sea life die off reports.

08.04.2015 - TEPCO may evaporate contaminated Fukushima water

Extract:

Tainted water from Fukushima nuclear plant storage may be evaporated or stored underground instead of following earlier plans to release it into the ocean.

This comes as low-level radiation produced by the tsunami-stricken Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan has been detected off the coast of Canada.

TEPCO is in a race against time to contain the wrecked nuclear facility. Management of the situation has likewise been marked by mishaps and scandalous revelations that have put a serious dent in the company’s reputation.

Comment:

It appears the fisherman are pretty angry about the situation.

“Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO), which is responsible for cleaning up the crippled power plant, planned to release the tritium-laced water into the ocean. However, it suffered a setback following protests by local fishermen who are already struggling with their livelihood following the 2011 earthquake and tsunami that led to the meltdown of three reactors.”

20.12.2014 - International marine science organization releases report on radiation in Pacific Ocean.

Extracts:

Researchers from Fisheries and Oceans Canada confirmed that the radioactive plume from Fukushima is indeed reaching the shores of Canada and the United States - and was detected at least six months ago - carried both in the ocean surface water and the atmosphere on similar but slightly different courses.

Meanwhile, the second, published by Vincent Rossi and other colleagues from the Climate Change Research Centre in 2013, presents a much more consequential picture. It predicts alarming maximum levels reaching 25 Bq/m^3 at their monitoring station in British Columbia by 2015 and peaks above 30 Bq/m^3.

10.11.2014 - Fukushima Radioactivity Detected Off West Coast

Extract:

The amount of cesium-134 reported in these new offshore data is less than 2 Becquerels per cubic meter (the number of decay events per second per 260 gallons of water). This Fukushima-derived cesium is far below where one might expect any measurable risk to human health or marine life, according to international health agencies.

Comment: (My opinion)

“This Fukushima-derived cesium is far below where one might expect any measurable risk to human health or marine life”

Statements like this ignore the potential for the Cesium to be Bio-accumulated (concentrated) by tens of thousands of times through the ocean food chain. Trace amounts of other radioactive Isotopes from the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster would have to be present, if Cesium was detected. A lot of artificial isotopes are not only radioactive damaging, but are also chemically toxic to biological life.

You get what is a toxicity multiplying effect.

The toxicity of each additional environmentally introduced toxin, radiological or chemical, does not add up like Toxin 1 + Toxin 2 = 2, twice the damage. T1 + T2 can be 10 or twenty times more damaging and dangerous. The human or animal defense systems become weaker the more toxins they have to deal with creating a system overload, fighting too many battles on too many fronts, at the same time!

The Bio-accumulation of radiological and chemical toxins are going to dramatically increase toxicity multiplying effects throughout the Pacific Ocean food chain.

18.09.2014 - Fukushima radioactive contamination is rapidly warming North Pacific seawater.

Extract:

There is a massive pool of warm water in the Gulf of Alaska, NOAA scientist Nate Mantua said in an email. It is unprecedented in the historical record, he added… the past year is way out of the historical range — “so who knows what will happen?”…

300,000 becquerels per cubic centimeter detected in ocean water is 300 BILLION becquerels per square meter. Fukushima has been leaking ever since, but the worst of it occurred at the beginning of the catastrophe.

The contaminated water will not move out for many years, but decay heat release will continue, so look for Pacific sea surface temperatures to keep increasing, and the drought to continue.

27.08.2014 - Scientist wants samples from islanders for testing for radioactivity

Extract:

“The plume also contains other radioactive material, including Strontium 90 at a far, far lower level than was released into the atmosphere during the nuclear bomb testing up until the 1960s. As well, radioactive isotopes of iodine, low levels of plutonium and tritium (hydrogen 3) might be in the plume.”

Comment:

Quote

“The plume also contains other radioactive material, including Strontium 90 at a far, far lower level than was released into the atmosphere during the nuclear bomb testing up until the 1960s.”

In my opinion this is a very misleading statement, because ocean life can greatly concentrate contaminants, through the dynamics of Bio-accumulation. Plant and animal life in the ocean can potentially Bio-accumulate radioactive isotope contamination through the food chain, by hundreds of thousand of times, and sometime millions of times.

27.08.2014 - Fukushima Daiichi Sea Releases Updated To 157 Billion Bq Per Day

Extract:

“The journalists at the conference prodded TEPCO for actual readings due to the graph having wide ranges and exact numbers were not published along side it. The cart appears to show a very clear reading of 150 billion bq per day for tritium at the 2014 rate, not the 1 billion bq per day quoted by TEPCO in the meeting. The other isotope readings quoted by TEPCO appear to be accurate. This big change in the daily tritium release increases the daily total radiation release to the sea as being 157 billion becquerels per day.”

7.07.2014 - LONG COMMUTE AND RADIOACTIVE ROPE

Extract:

Just after midday a piece of rope was pulled aboard. As part of our logging protocol, I brought out the Geiger counter and took a reading. The ambient reading that morning had been about 30 CPM (cycles per minute) so it was a surprise when the reader climbed, and spiked at 120 CPM - our highest reading yet. It should be noted however, that to calibrate the counter I actually use a product sold in supermarkets called Nu-Salt which registers at 100 CPM. So we don’t feel it poses a substantial health risk, but is important to monitor as radiation levels in the gyre is a common question we encounter.

Comment:

The radioactivity in NU-salt sold in supermarkets is from extra Potassium content, a small percentage of which is natural radioactive Potassium. Radioactive Potassium is in all living things.

The contamination on this rope could be cause by far more biologically dangerous radioactive contamination. A Geiger counter test won’t tell you what radioactive isotopes are causing the higher than background detection.

Extracts:

Tepco said 560 tons of groundwater captured and stored before it entered reactor building basements was to be released Wednesday, using a bypass system that funnels it toward the ocean after checking for radiation levels.

The safety limits for the water released, which Tepco says are tighter than World Health Organization guidelines for drinking water, state that released groundwater should contain less than 1 becquerel per liter of cesium-134 and cesium-137, 5 becquerels of beta ray-emitting radioactive material such as strontium-90, and 1,500 becquerels of tritium.

05.04.2014 - Tepco plans to discharge pumped groundwater to the sea this coming June

Extracts:

The pumped groundwater contains significant level of radiation as well, however it would not be filtered before discharging. (cf, [Coincidence ?] 3 highest densities of Tritium are “exactly 1,200,000 Bq/m3″ in groundwater bypass.

Comment:

There should be an international effort to stop this from happening. At present there is a lot of Nuclear industry propaganda making out that Tritium is harmless. This video brings up a lot of independent research on the biological effects radioactive Tritium releases. That Tritium is something to be very concerned about. It is not just large amounts of Tritium that will be released into the Pacific Ocean!

16.03.2014 - “Squelching Efforts to Measure Fukushima Meltdown”

Extracts:

As a senior scientist at the Japanese government’s Meteorological Research Institute, he said levels of radioactive cesium 137 in the surface water of the Pacific Ocean could be 10,000 times as high as contamination after Chernobyl, the world’s worst nuclear accident.

Off the record, university researchers in Japan say that even now, three years after the triple meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi plant, they feel under pressure to play down the impact of the disaster.

“Getting involved in this sort of research is dangerous politically,” said Joji Otaki, a biologist at Japan’s Ryukyu University who has written papers suggesting that radioactivity at Fukushima has triggered inherited deformities in a species of butterfly.

Comment:

It appears the Japanese government complained to The New York Times about the original headline to this article, because on the 17th March this correction was added by the NYTimes.

Correction: March 17, 2014

“An earlier version of the headline with this article misstated the actions of the Japanese government. There are deep differences over how to determine the health impact of the Fukushima disaster. The authorities are not ‘‘squelching” efforts to measure the effects of the accident.”

The new New York Times headline is, “Concerns Over Measurement of Fukushima Fallout”

Tepco said last week that groundwater drawn from a monitoring well last July contained a record 5 million becquerels per litre of dangerous radioactive strontium-90 - more than five times the total beta radiation reading of 900,000 becquerels per litre recorded in the well, which is around 25 metres from the ocean.

22.01.2014 - Large amount of cesium flowed into ocean after 2011 typhoon.

Extracts:

Cesium released from the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant in a triple meltdown in March 2011 landed in the soil in the region, which measures some 5,000 square kilometers wide. The fallout is gradually finding its way into the river through storm-water runoff.

In the 12-month period, the amount of cesium that reached the ocean was about 10 trillion becquerels, almost the same as the figure for cesium that directly flowed into the ocean from the crippled plant during the same period.

Comment:

This study shows that even if they were able to stop the contamination from the Fukushima Nuclear disaster site following into the Pacific Ocean, there will still be huge amounts of contamination flowing into to the Pacific Ocean for years to come, from the vast area of contaminated land rain runoff .

31.12.2013 - Nuclear Waste Sits on Ocean Floor

Extracts:

“I would beg to differ,” Thomas Suchanek, the principal investigator and lead author of the 1991 study, said recently. The study found americium, a radioactive decay product of plutonium, in some fish samples from the site as well as a comparison area about 60 miles away. The report calculated that plutonium in underwater sediment at the dump site was up to about 1,000 times normal background levels.

The Food and Drug Administration said that in 1990 it found traces of plutonium in fish samples from the site but at levels well within safety standards.

On various occasions, federal reports say, government researchers have encountered lobster fishermen or lobster traps inside the no-fishing advisory zone.

25.12.2013 - Fukushima is worse than Chernobyl: radiation affects fish, World Ocean, West Coast - experts

Extracts:

70 crew members of the US Ronald Reagan aircraft-carrier, involved in the relief operation in the wake of the disaster, are filing a lawsuit against the TEPCO Fukushima operator company, claiming the Japanese company had failed to warn them of all the risks that they were running during the operation.

Because of the World Ocean currents, the seafood that’s caught off the US Pacific coast is more likely to contain radionuclides than the seafood in the Sea of Okhotsk, which is by far closer to Japan. It is these marine products that may find their way to the tables of different countries’ residents that pose the gravest danger.

Radionuclides have made it even to the Alaskan coast, causing a decline in the sockeye populations there.

06.12.2013 - Fukushima isotopes are nearing West Coast — Official: U.S. ocean water to have 100 Bq/m3 of cesium-137?

Extracts:

Though officials claim the cesium-137 in the ocean water is ‘safe’ for humans to drink, fish bio-concentrate cs-137 at a rate of 100 times the level found in the surrounding water. For seals and sea lions it’s up to 1,000 times.

Note that the study’s findings may be a considerable underestimation, as its results are calculated based on releases from Fukushima ending in April 2011 — yet the plant has been releasing a reported 400 tons of radioactive water every day since the disaster in March 2011.

22.11.2013 - “Sea Snot” Explosions Feed Deep-Sea Creatures

Extracts:

The scientists observed the largest spikes in deep-sea productivity in 2011 and 2012, corresponding with massive phytoplankton blooms.

In March 2012, less than one percent of the seafloor beneath Station M was covered in dead sea salps. By July 1, more than 98 percent of it was covered in the decomposing organisms.

The major increase in activity of deep-sea life in 2011 and 2012 weren’t limited to Station M, though: Other ocean-research stations reported similar data.

Comment:

They put this event down to global warming.

The vast majority of the large multiple species die off reports I have seen, are from Northern America, and the Pacific Ocean. This geographical evidence strongly points to the continuing Northern America radiation fallout, and Pacific Ocean contamination, caused by the ongoing Fukushima Nuclear disaster.

22.11.2013 - Fukushima released up to 100,000 times more cesium-137 in surface ocean waters than Chernobyl or nuclear weapons testing.
Extracts:

"up to 60 million becquerels per cubic meter were reported, high enough to cause reproductive and health effects in marine animals"

“Yet all the data we have show that measurements around the site remain elevated to this day at up to 1,000 becquerels per cubic meter.

Comment:

Quote: "He hastened to put that number into context. “A thousand becquerels is not a big number for cesium. Just for comparison, that’s lower than the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s limit for drinking water."

In the light of recent research the Environmental Protection Agency’s Cesium limit for drinking water, has been set far to high.

Also, in regards to Ocean dynamics this report does not take into account,

1. The potential 100,000 times or more bio-accumulation in sea food.

2. The fact that the Fukushima nuclear disaster has released and is still releasing, thousands of different types of radioactive isotopes, not just Cesium.

These reports generally only concentrate on the Cesium contamination, and conveniently leave out discussion on the other isotopic contaminants.

Despite such efforts, the levels of cesium-137 in seawater samples collected between the water intakes for reactors 1 and 2 inside the port rose to around 100 becquerels per liter this month from around 10 becquerels between late June and early July.

“It is reasonable to assume that the total amount of radioactive materials flowing into the sea has risen,” said Masaya Yasui, an emergency response official at the NRA secretariat.

07.10.2013 - Scientists dismiss claims that radiation in Japan is contained.

Extracts:

Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s claim that radioactive water leaking into the sea from the wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant is confined to the coast doesn’t make scientific sense.

Each tank contains about 10 terabequerels, or 270 curies, of strontium-90.

Once strontium gets into fish, it stays in them for months and years and it’s going to be an additional reason why they won’t be able to open up their fisheries

07.10.2013 - Report raises fresh concerns about radiation levels in Japanese fish.

Extracts:

The Japanese Fisheries Agency has been testing the radiation in fish caught in its waters since March 2011. 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.

Comment:

Recent research suggests 5 Bq/Kg should be the maximum for children, and preferably none. If they detect Cesium there are probably other radioactive Isotopes contaminants present, but not reported.

September 2013 - Ocean Plume Modeling for the Fukushima Dai’ichi Event: Particle tracing.

Extracts:

These particle tracing exercises show us: The Kuroshio (extension) and Oyashio are remarkably effective in localizing pollution on a relatively small section of the Japanese coast, while effectively dispersing pollutants eastward into the Pacific. l Coastal water may take several weeks to reach the Kuroshio extension. l Currents are strongest near Japan, particles slow down as they move eastward.

First weeks contamination 30km offshore is dominated by atmospheric deposits. Localized spikes in contamination after April 1 are likely due to coastal releases. Could be added as separate load to model.

22.07.2013 - Tepco now admits radioactive water entering the sea at Fukushima, No. 1 Fisheries exec shocked by utility’s flip-flop on groundwater’s flow.

Shocked, really! Anyone who has taken any notice of what has been happening at the Fukushima Nuclear disaster site from the very beginning, would not be shocked. It has flowed into the Pacific Ocean for 28 months now. They use the word leak, to play it down. Their estimate is 450 tons a day of ground water flowing into the Pacific Ocean. This is probably a very conservative estimate! It’s a flood, not a leak! Look at the multiple huge detection reports here, under the Pacific Ocean heading, for some enlightenment of what is truly happening.

03.04.2013 - Cesium, iodine and tritium in NW Pacific waters - a comparison of the Fukushima impact with global fallout

Extracts:

At the sampling site about 40 km from the coast, where all three radionuclides were analyzed, the Fukushima impact on the levels of these three radionuclides represents an increase above the global fallout background by factors of about 1000, 50 and 3, respectively. The water column data indicate that the transport of Fukushima-derived radionuclides downward to the depth of 300 m has already occurred.

The observed 137Cs levels in surface waters and in the water column are compared with predictions obtained from the ocean general circulation model, which indicates that the Kuroshio Current acts as a southern boundary for the transport of the radionuclides, which have been transported from the Fukushima coast eastward in the NW Pacific Ocean.

08.10.1971 - Fallout and Reproduction of Ocean Fish Populations. E.J. Sternglass, Department of Radiology, School of Medicine, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Extract:

Nuclear Fallout causes Fish Population Decline

As will be shown below, very large declines of fish-populations after low-altitude nuclear tests followed by a gradual recovery to pretesting levels have been observed both in the Atlantic and Pacific, strongly suggesting that the eggs of fish and the developing young are far more sensitive to internal radiation from low-level fallout than had been anticipated, very much as in the case of the human-embryo and fetus.

Comment:

Quote:

“The purpose of the study was to determine whether continued atmospheric testing by France and China or potential releases from underground detonations that might unexpectedly escape into the nearby fishing grounds could have detectable effects on the reproduction of fish populations similar to the unanticipatedly severe effects of low level radiation on the human embryo and fetus (2, 3, 4) recently confirmed by independent studies by other investigators (5, 6).”

The continual release of radioactive fallout and contaminated water, into the Pacific Ocean from the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe, would have the same effects as atmospheric atomic bomb testing. It is causing a huge drop off in fish stocks and other sea life. This would explain why there are so many seal lions and other sea life presently starving to death on the west coast of America.

Thanks to Dr.Sternglass who passed away in early February, for this study.

18th April 2014 - Pakistan may ban Japan edible items, Senate told

Extracts:

Almost three years back in April 2011, Pakistan Nuclear Regulatory Authority had directed authorities dealing with Cargo arriving directly or indirectly from Japan to screen all types of consignments including edible/non-edible, for radiation.

It is worthy of mentioning here that country’s nuclear scientists had advised the federal government three years back to halt all types of goods from Japan to minimize the threat of radiation following the Fukushima Nuclear Crisis in Japan. The scientists had advised the government after they detected high level of Iodine from the consignments imported from Japan.

keeping in view that the move to ban imports from Japan may hurt bilateral relationship between the two friendly countries, the Pakistani government never imposed ban on import of goods from Japan.

Comment:

This is criminal behaviour by a government. It allowed highly radioactive contaminated food items into the country, just to keep relations sweet with Japan.

Chelyabinsk “The Most Contaminated Spot on the Planet”

Extracts:

Accidents, nuclear waste disposal and day to day operation of the Mayak reactor and radiochemical plant contaminated a vast area of the province.

In 1957, a nuclear waste storage tank accident released radiation double the amount released by the Chernobyl accident. 

On September 29, 1957 a liquid radioactive waste storage tank exploded following a failure in the cooling system and polluted an area equal to the size of New Jersey with plutonium and strontium.

Over the past 33 years, there has been a 21% increase in the incidences of cancer, 25% increase in birth defects and 50% of the population of child bearing age are sterile.

17.08.1998 - Wastes of War Radioactivity Threatens a Mighty River

Extracts:

The product of nuclear fission, including plutonium-239, cesium-137 and strontium-90, have been found hundreds of miles downstream, apparently carried by the river’s powerful floods, and have been detected in the food chain.

In downstream villages, experts have found a disturbing statistical pattern of illnesses: an increase in children with leukemia, in breast cancer among women, in genetic aberrations, and a higher death rate.

At Mayak, located in the Ural Mountains, immense releases of radioactivity came from wastes that were pumped into open reservoirs and Lake Karachai, as well as the 1957 catastrophic explosion of a radioactive waste container that created a massive aerial plume that exposed hundreds of thousands of people to radiation. At Tomsk-7, there was an explosion in 1993 in a 9,246-gallon tank containing uranium and plutonium that released substantial amounts of radioactivity.

These injections remain some of the largest discharges of radiation ever made into the global environment. Donald J. Bradley of the U.S. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, in a recent study on radioactive waste in the former Soviet Union, reported that the injections at Krasnoyarsk released 1 billion curies of radioactivity into the Earth, of which 450 million curies remained in 1996.

By comparison, he said, the Chernobyl nuclear power plant accident in April 1986 released 5.8 million curies, of which 1.57 million remained.

Vitaly Kovalenko, deputy chief doctor for radiology at the regional sanitary-epidemiological center in Krasnoyarsk, said plutonium has been found on Gorodskoi Island at readings of up to 48 becquerels per kilo.

19.04.1992 - At top of the world, the Soviet legacy is pollution

Extracts:

Scientists began taking blood and tissue samples from the seals two years ago, after more than a million dead starfish washed up along the White Sea coast. They are still unsure of what killed the starfish, but the study of the seals has revealed blood pathologies consistent with long-term toxic or radioactive exposure.

“The Barents Sea and the coast of Novaya Zemlya were turned into a dump for solid and liquid radioactive waste. A catastrophic situation has been created. A real threat has emerged, not only to sea mammals but everything in the ocean. The ecological and genetic consequences are unpredictable.”

Local health officials report cancer rates 50 to 100 percent higher than the average in Russia. Only 8 percent of the region’s children are born healthy, Mr. Sadkov says. Many suffer from allergies, lung and blood diseases and various degrees of retardation.

Comment:

“Only 8 percent of the region’s children are born healthy.”

What an indictment on a government to allow this to happen! From the research I have done over many years, it has become very clear that governments and corporations across the world, can’t be trusted, no matter what their political persuasion. Without an active concerned citizenry, psychopaths in power do what they want, without concern for present or future generations. Their only concern is to do whatever it takes to gain riches and power!

Extract:

But in recent tests by the state government of Saxony, more than one in three boars were found to give off such high levels of radiation that they are unfit for human consumption.

In a single year, 297 out of 752 boar tested in Saxony have been over the limit, and there have been cases in Germany of boar testing dozens of times over the limit.

Comment:

A Cesium contamination safety limit of 600 Bg/kg, is set for this wild boar meat! This informative video explains why this limit is set way to high.

“Calculations based on models used by the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) show that dietary intake of the maximum amount of radioactive contamination permitted in the EU and Japan would lead to at least roughly 150,000 fatalities in Germany each year. Other calculation models reach vastly higher figures. If the entire German population were to eat foods exposing individuals to only 5 percent of the contamination currently allowed in food imports from Japan, at least 7,700 fatalities could be expected; this figure doesn’t even include the secondary consequences of a wide range of greatly varying diseases and genetic disorders.”

25.04.2016 - AP Exclusive: Test finds Chernobyl residue in Belarus milk

Extracts:

“We have a disaster,” he told the AP in the Ukraine capital, Kiev. ““In Belarus, there is no protection of the population from radiation exposure. On the contrary, the government is trying to persuade people not to pay attention to radiation, and food is grown in contaminated areas and sent to all points in the country.“

The milk sample subjected to an AP-commissioned analysis backs this picture.

The state-run Minsk Center of Hygiene and Epidemiology said it found strontium-90, a radioactive isotope linked to cancers and cardiovascular disease, in quantities 10 times higher than Belarusian food safety regulations allow. The test, like others in resource-strapped Belarus, was insufficiently sophisticated to test for heavier radioactive isotopes associated with nuclear fallout, including americium and variants of plutonium.

Extract:

In November 2012, a minibus imported from Japan by a used-car dealer in Jamaica was scanned and found to have radiation levels which required it to be moved to a quarantined area.

In December of 2013, a shipping container containing used car parts destined for Guyana was also found to have elevated levels of radiation. It too was transferred to a quarantined area for protection.

04.02.2014 - After the Apocalypse - hidden truths

Extracts:

The story of the people of Semipalatinsk in Kazakhstan, who were used as guinea pigs in the Soviet Union’s testing of nuclear weapons.

Dr. Boris Gusev, Semipalatinsk Institute of Radiation Medicine:

“We knew precisely where the radiation was.”
“We knew precisely how much of the different types of radiation that people were being exposed to.”
“What dose the population was receiving.”
“We knew everything.”

“Between 1949 and 1989, the Soviet Union exploded 460 nuclear bombs in eastern Kazakhstan. The damage residents suffered as a result of being exposed to high levels of radiation has been passed on, and seems to have intensified in the following generations.”

The total number affected is thought to be more than one million - creating health problems ranging from thyroid diseases, cancer, birth defects, deformities, premature aging, and cardiovascular diseases. Life expectancy in the area is seven years less than the national average of Kazakhstan

Comment:

This article has excellent video resources, plus links to other articles on the continual suffering that has resulted from these people being exposed to the fallout from numerous Soviet nuclear bomb tests.

05.01.2009 - You are being lied to about pirates. Some are clearly just gangsters. But others are trying to stop illegal dumping and trawling.

Extracts:

Yes: nuclear waste. As soon as the government was gone, mysterious European ships started appearing off the coast of Somalia, dumping vast barrels into the ocean. The coastal population began to sicken. At first they suffered strange rashes, nausea and malformed babies. Then, after the 2005 tsunami, hundreds of the dumped and leaking barrels washed up on shore. People began to suffer from radiation sickness, and more than 300 died.

Ahmedou Ould-Abdallah, the UN envoy to Somalia, tells me: “Somebody is dumping nuclear material here. There is also lead, and heavy metals such as cadmium and mercury - you name it.” Much of it can be traced back to European hospitals and factories, who seem to be passing it on to the Italian mafia to “dispose” of cheaply. When I asked Mr Ould-Abdallah what European governments were doing about it, he said with a sigh: “Nothing. There has been no clean-up, no compensation, and no prevention.”

23.12.2013 - Japanese seafood contamination found in Taiwan and Sri Lanka

Extract:

Waduge said that radiation levels, particularly in seafood items imported from Japan, had noticeably increased. He attributed the high level to the 2011 disaster at the Fukushima Daichi Nuclear Plant.

However, he said that radiation levels were below the danger level of 100 Becquerel (BQ), with the readings indicating the level varying between 15 and 20 (BQ).

Extracts:

A food import customs broker has been arrested in Taiwan on charges he faked import testing and documents. This included allegations that he faked origin documentation on seafood products that were from Chiba prefecture in Japan in order to import them into Taiwan. All of the food items had been sent to restaurants in Taiwan and served.

26.03.2015 - Banned Japanese Fukushima Foods Mislabeled, Sold In Taiwan (Report Update)


Extracts:

A total of 300 food items were found on sale in Taiwan with falsified origin food labels. Investigators found an additional 3000 mislabeled products at the port of Keelung. Local health officials have seized some of the food products but many were already sold to customers.

193 of those were found to contain no radiation by Taiwan’s Atomic Energy Council. This would indicate that 101 were contaminated.

There have also been calls by legislators for sanctioning the companies involved or a wide scale boycott of all Japanese foods. Citizen groups are also calling for much more strict import and testing processes to be put in place on all Japanese food products. Taiwan’s Homemaker’s Union demanded that the government require food origin and radiation testing proof for Japanese imports.

Comment:

Where else have these products ended up! Haven’t heard anything in the main stream Western press on this subject. Well it seems British, Australian, Canadian and US citizens don’t matter, just send it there and they will heartily consume it!

Thanks to SimplyInfo for this detailed update on the Japanese food mislabeling report.

Extracts:

Taiwan’s legislature decided Monday that all containerized cargos coming from Tokyo and Yokohama must go through radiation checks at a port in southern Taiwan.

Lu’s office told Kyodo News that Lu filed the motion at the committee because she saw a report in the Liberty Times in August saying that since the Fukushima nuclear crisis in 2011, Kaohsiung Customs had detected 226 cargo containers originating from or routed through Japan with radiation levels exceeding the legal limit.

07.07.2012 - Chernobyl’s radioactive trees and the forest fire risk

Extracts:

“Pine damages easily. Wind blows it down. Insects infest it. Drought makes brush into perfect tinder which can all too easily catch fire. And these dying radioactive plantations are considered too dangerous and expensive to clear.

If ignited, one expert likens the potential effect to setting off a nuclear bomb in Eastern Europe. Wind could carry radioactive smoke particles large distances, not just in Ukraine, but right across the continent.”

“Sergiy says more big wildfires in Chernobyl like the one in 1992 would be catastrophic for Ukraine’s image, and potentially devastating for farmland right across Europe.”

“Berries are highly efficient at soaking up and storing radionuclides, huge quantities of which were dispersed over large parts of the Soviet Union and Western Europe by smoke plumes from the explosion. ”

“It is blueberry season, and they are selling them by the plastic pint glass. You could pull in to haggle, but Sergiy Zibtsev, a professor from the Forestry Institute at the Kiev University of Life Sciences does not recommend it. They are laced with radioactive strontium.”

Comment:

The civil war in the Ukraine posses unforeseen threats to people across Europe. With a lot of scarce resources going to the civil war effort, neglect of Chernobyl’s forests could be a major health issue for people living across Europe!

12.04.2016 - OECD agency eyes new global standards on radioactive content in food

Extracts:

The Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) is poised to lay down new international standards regarding concentration of radioactive substances in food. The move is expected to lead to a unified yardstick for judging safety, thereby helping relax import restrictions still imposed by some foreign countries on Japanese food in the wake of the 2011 nuclear accident at Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s Fukushima Daiichi plant.

A similar standard for bread in Ukraine, where the Chernobyl nuclear accident occurred, is 20 becquerels and it is 40 becquerels in adjacent Belarus. In the European Union, the standard for general food is 1,250 becquerels while the U.S. standard is 1,200 becquerels for all food.

Comment:

Independent research shows that even 10 Bg/kg of Cesium-137 can be dangerous for children. In my opinion this is criminal behaviour, by the international regulators. They are more interested in protecting the nuclear industry, than children!

In this 10 minute long video, research information is presented, that shows very small amounts of Cesium are hazardous to children.

09.01.2016 - EU due to start easing restrictions on food imports from Fukushima

Extracts:

The European Union will start easing restrictions Saturday imposed on Japanese food imports over the Fukushima nuclear disaster, including vegetables and beef produced in the prefecture, the farm ministry said.

That requirement will be removed for vegetables, fruit excluding persimmons, livestock products, tea and soba, because the radiation levels of these items never exceeded permissible levels in 2013 and 2014, according to the farm ministry.

Other food from the prefecture such as rice, mushrooms, soybeans and some fishery products - excluding scallops, seaweed and live fish - will remain subject to the requirement.

At least 14 countries, including Australia and Thailand, have abolished restrictions on Japanese food imports, while dozens of countries like South Korea maintain special rules.

Comment:

“The allowable limits are set at 100 becquerels per kilogram for vegetables and fruit, 50 Bq/kg for milk beverages and infant food, and 10 Bq/kg for drinking water, in accordance to Japanese standards.”

In my opinion, these so called safety limits are far too high for children! Why would any parent risk their child’s health because some bureaucrats say it is safe to eat, when independent research says it is clearly not! We have a sick leadership!

This very informative video, that is just 10 minutes long, discusses the damage very small amounts of Cesium can do to children.

15.12.2015 - Declassified U.S. Government Report on Fukushima: “100% of The Total Spent Fuel Was Released to the Atmosphere from Unit 4”

Extracts:

The source term provided to NARAC was:

(1) 25% of the total fuel in unit 2 released to the atmosphere,

(2) 50% of the total spent fuel from unit 3 was released to the atmosphere,

(3) 100% of the total spent fuel was released to the atmosphere from unit 4.

For example, there was “more cesium in that [Unit 4] fuel pool than in all 800 nuclear bombs exploded above ground.”

Comment:

If 100% of the total spent fuel was released to the atmosphere from unit 4, it means the said removal of the spent fuel rods from unit 4 fuel pool was noting but staged theater for the masses!

Extracts:

Hiroshima today, it’s in Fallujah in Iraq, in Gaza, in Afghanistan, in Yugoslavia, in all the places contaminated with uranium. 52% of the kids born in Fallujah today have severe malformations or cancer / leukaemia. The Deutsche Welle talks of a mother that was expecting twins and got a girl with two heads. Now there is an hospital specialised in child cancer in Basra. Articles talking about it say cancers are one of the most important causes of infant mortality in Iraq, 10 times more than in the Western world, and that there are five times more cancers in the South of Iraq than in the North. But Western nations still refuse to acknowledge the toxic effects of these weapons, so as to pretend they are not against international law.

12.03.2014 - Top Expert Debunks Radiation Myths

Extracts:

Mousseau has made numerous trips to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone and Fukushima - making 896 inventories at Chernobyl and 1,100 biotic inventories in Fukushima as of July 2013 - to test the effect of radiation on plants and animals.

Indeed, Mousseau found - in studies of plants, insects and mammals - that:

Most organisms studied show significantly increased rates of genetic damage in direct proportion to the level of exposure to radioactive contaminants

Many organisms show increased rates of deformities and developmental abnormalities in direct proportion to contamination levels

Many organisms show reduced fertility rates

Many organisms show reduced life spans

Many organisms show reduced population sizes

Biodiversity is significantly decreased many species locally extinct

Mutations are passed from one generation to the next, and show signs of accumulating over time

Mutations are migrating out of affected areas into populations that are not exposed (i.e. population bystander effects)

05.02.2013 - Modelling the global atmospheric transport and deposition of radionuclides from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident. (March 11 to the 31st May 2011)

Extracts:

The calculated concentrations have been compared to station observations by the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO).

We calculated that about 80 % of the radioactivity from Fukushima which was released to the atmosphere deposited
into the Pacific Ocean.

Used the temporal emission patterns for the radioactive isotopes 133 Xe and 137 Cs for March and April 2011.

The model not only represents the measurements well in the vicinity of the source, but also in North, Middle and South America.

Deposition maps are on page 9 and 10

Our model results suggest that the plumes that traversed the Pacific Ocean caused significant deposition of radioactivity over continental North America, in particular western USA, western Canada and eastern USA.

Our model results also show substantial deposition of radionuclides in regions southwest of Japan, e.g., around the Philippines.

We calculated that an area of Japan of 34,000 km 2 was contaminated by more than 40 kBqm2 of 137 Cs and 131 I, to which 9.4 million people were exposed. Our model results indicate that a surface area of 60,000 km2
received a total deposition greater than 10 kBqm2 a region inhabited by 46 million people.

Our model indicates that a relatively large and densely populated part of Japan including parts of the Tokyo metropolitan area has been contaminated by more than 40 kBqm2.

Comment:

This study does not take into account the large continuing radioactive releases from the Fukushima Nuclear disaster since May 2011, or the hundreds of other different radioactive isotopes that were released at the time, besides I-131, Cs-137 and Xe-133.

Probably worth downloading and saving a copy, for future reference.

2012 - Xenon-133 and caesium-137 releases into the atmosphere from the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant: determination of the source term, atmospheric dispersion, and deposition

Extracts:

This release is more than a factor of two higher than the Chernobyl 133Xe source term and most likely the largest radioactive noble gas release in history.

A quantitative analysis of the model output shows that 18 % of the total 137Cs deposition until 20 April occurred over Japanese land. Only 0.7 PBq, or 1.9 % of the total de-position were received by land areas other than Japan, while the remaining 80 % were deposited in the oceans.

Comment:

This document only estimates the initial releases from the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster from March to April 2011. It does not included the huge ongoing atmospheric and Pacific Ocean releases since then. Also, it is researching the dispersion of two isotopes that were released, it doesn’t include the hundreds of others that were and are still being released.

All the evidence points to the ongoing Fukushima Nuclear Disaster, being far worse than Chernobyl!

14.12.2012 - A study on the transport of radioactive isotopes from Fukushima in the two months after the nuclear incident suggests that they were at official levels of contamination for 34,000 km2 of Japan, and that 2.8% of iodine radionuclides from the event were calculated to have reached the EU.

Extracts:

The model results suggest that 12.7% of iodine radionuclides were deposited over the USA and Canada, 4.5% over Russia and 2.8% over the EU. Approximately 50 - 60% was deposited locally in Japan.

A separate calculation which assumed source emissions that were five times greater, suggested that a relatively large and densely populated part of Japan - 56,000 km2 - would be classified as contaminated.

It should be emphasized that this refers to two radionuclides only.

Computer equipment used in the local community testing lab


This is what the testing equipment looks like set up on a computer, with the Beeresearch bias box “Gamma Spectacular” unit, plus scintillator. The scintillator is the tall silver tube. It is the scintillator that does the detection. They are very delicate and need to be handled with care.

more info here,

http://www.gammaspectacular.com/

To get the best testing results a scintillator needs to be set up in a lead shielded testing chamber. The unit used for testing is a 2′ x 2′ NaI  crystal scintillator, set up in a 15 mm thick lead shielded container.





Spectrometry Charts



For those interested in Spectrometry, here are some charted results using this equipment to test radioactive items, and mineral samples.

Black fungus material from Japan test chart I was sent this resin encapsulated sample of black fungus like material. It has reportedly come from somewhere in the Minamisoma area Japan. A contact in Japan sent a friend this sample. This is my test chart of it. For those of you who have not looked at a chart like this before. The position of the peaks in a the chart indicate what isotopes are present. This fungus started growing on the concrete, and rock surfaces in Japan after the Fukushima Nuclear disaster. It appears to be bio-accumulating Cesium.



Thorium Gas Mantle Here is a scintillator detector test chart of a Thorium gas mantle, showing the different gamma emitting radioactive isotopes present in it. This chart doesn't include lots of other Alpha emitting isotopes that are also in a Thorium gas mantle. Scintillator detectors, like the one used for this test, can't detect pure Alpha or Beta isotope emitters. Old Thorium mantles are highly radioactive, and in my opinion a radioactive dust hazard, particularly if they are in old packaging. Anyone who is not experienced in handling radioactive material should not purchase Thorium Mantles. I am amazed that they actually sold these to the public.

Radium clock dial chart This spectra was recorded in a lead shield chamber without a copper liner, or proper calibration,  hence the large secondary X-ray peak at approx 80 keV. The chart is of half a Radium clock dial. This is to demonstrate what the equipment can do, plus to show how radioactive this small piece of fashionable jewelry was. A lot of people who used it as jewelry, or who were employed to paint these dials, died from the exposer to this highly radioactive substance.



The Radium clock Dail, Uraninite, and Euxenite, samples were kindly loaned by enenews member, Spectrometising.



Uraninite sample Chart Spectra recorded with a copper liner. Uraninite is a Uranium rich mineral, it is most commonly known as pitchblende. It is very radioactive.  It was used here to calibrate the equipment.



Euxenite Y Chart  Spectra recorded in a lead shield chamber without a copper liner, hence the large secondary X-ray peak at approx 80 Kev.



Local Food Testing Results




Large numbers of Australia food items have been, and are still being tested continuously. Because we don’t have the man hours to write a report for each tested food item, only items that have had relevant radioactive isotope detections, are listed here.

September 2014 testing report

In the last two plus years, a lot of tests have been conducted on a broad range of Australian food items. No cesium has been detected in any of those food items tested. If it was present, it was below the test equipment’ detection limit. This is good news.

Some items had trace detections of Iodine I-129.  These detections were very small, and at the limits of what the equipment here can reliably detect, and quantify. An Australian dried Wakame seaweed sample, sent to The Food Lab for testing by a contact, had the most significant 1-129 detection of the food items tested here.

Australian Banana and Strawberry Plant Mutation Report (16th August 2014)


Spirulina

Possibly a small amount of radioactive iodine 1-129 has been detected in 200 grams of Spirulina, purchased at the local super market. It was tested twice. The other candidate is lead isotope Pb-210. I am leaning towards iodine because the  X-ray peak at 30 Kev fits its profile.  It is a small amount and is close to the limits of what the equipment here can detect. It is possibly a false positive detection. At this point Spirulina products should be tested by others to confirm if there is any contamination with fallout isotopes.

This raises a lot of questions, because a lot of people are taking this to protect themselves against radiation exposure. I take it myself. I can only say that the Spirulina product container we purchased showed very small trace amounts of contamination, other batches could be fine. We will test other batches over time.

If this is a I-129 detection, why would it appear by itself? One theory put forward is that the Spirulina organism is bio-accumlulating Iodine.

Here is some information that has already been put forward in discussions on this subject. “If you are detecting it, it isn’t probably natural …. but will be Fukushima - and I-129 is probably at levels to be a health concern.”

“I-129 is one of the 7 long-lived fission products that are produced in significant amounts. Its yield is 0.706% per fission (U-235).[8] Larger proportions of other iodine isotopes like 131I are produced, but because these all have short half-lives, iodine in cooled spent nuclear fuel consists of about 5/6 129I and 1/6 the only stable iodine isotope, 127I.”



Spirulina update

The batch off Spirulina I tested had on the packaging, “Made in Australia from Imported ingredients”. I was under the impression all Spirulina was produced in the Northern Hemisphere.  It has since been informed that an Australian company also produces Spirulina.

Cinnamon Detection (05/02/2013)

An 80 gram packet of Cinnamon imported from India, that was purchased in Australia, was found to have traces of Uranium isotope decay daughters in it. This is the second sample of Cinnamon that we have detected with isotope contamination. The other sample purchased last year was imported from , and only had trace amounts of a single isotope.

This sample from India has multiple isotope peak signatures in it. This is probably from soil contamination during harvesting, processing, or root uptake. K40 is radioactive Potassium which is in every living thing, Pb-214 is radioactive lead, Bi-214 is radioactive Bismuth, and Ra-226 is Radium.

Test chart


Bentonite Clay Chart

This is a test of imported Bentonite clay. People are consuming Bentonite clay to remove radioactive contamination from their bodies, and for other health benefits.

The chart is of a 625 gram sample of Bentonite Clay. The peaks on the far left in this chart up to the 88 keV mark, are not from the Bentonite clay, but secondary X-ray artifacts created from background Gamma radiation passing through the lead shielding of the testing chamber.

The peak on the far right at 1460 keV is radioactive Potassium, referred to as K40. This is caused from the radiative K40 in the wooden building I did the testing in. A very small amount of K40 is in Potassium Chloride which is in pretty much every living thing.

If you look at the red highlighted peaks in this chart, the peaks indicate the presence of radioactive Radium Ra-226, Lead Pb-214 and Bi-214. Also on testing, Zeolite, also has be found to contain radioactive isotopes.

Zeolite Chart

1 kg of Zeolite was tested in a lead and copper lined test chamber. The Zeolite test showed that it had radioactive Lead and Bismuth Isotopes in it as well. It was not as radioactive as the Bentonite clay.

All soils have radioactive isotopes in them. This is what creates a lot of normal background radiation. These isotopes are created from Uranium and Thorium decay, which are present in soils. Most clays will have some radioactivity in them. That is why background radiation levels in a brick and tile house, are greater than a wooden one.

The second green marker in the Zeolite chart marks the largest peak for radioactive Lead Pb-212, and the second blue marker is Bismuth Bi-214, found in the Zeolite test.

People are taking Zeolite and Bentonite clay to remove radioactivity from their bodies, when they already have radioactive isotopes in them. OK, they only take a small amount at a time, so maybe it doesn’t matter? The benefits may out way the risks?

There is a big difference between using these items for environmental clean up or as a mud pack, to ingesting them. After testing and getting these results the big question are.

Is it a risk or an advantage to take these substances internally?

Do they actually remove radioactive contamination from a persons body as claimed?

Are the radioactive isotopes in them being absorbed when they pass through the digestive system?

It is generally agreed that consuming radioactive, or stable lead is not a good thing!

This type of testing only shows the radioactive isotopes that emit Gamma radiation in the samples. There may be stable lead and other heavy metal contamination also present.

After testing, I personally would not ingest these substances without a lot of further research, showing that they are actually doing something positive.

Bentonite Clay and Zeolite need further testing by others with this sort of equipment, to verify this. Note, samples mined from other locations may test differently.

Peaks in these charts are relative to the quantity of the samples used, plus the length of time the testing took. You will need to get an understanding of this to fully interpret the testing results from this equipment.

For instance, the peaks in the chart from the sample of radium on the clock dial that weighs a fraction of a gram, were very large. The Bentonite clay and Zeolite samples were 625 grams and 1 Kg. These are much larger test samples of material. They were also tested over a longer period of time. You need to take into account, time, distance and quantity, to make a proper assessment of the results. The radioactivity detected in the Bentonite clay and Zeolite samples were very much smaller than the radium clock dial!

Brazil Nuts Chart

Radioactive isotopes were found in Brazil nuts purchased at the local supermarket. See attached chart. The chart shows radioactive lead isotopes are present. The second green peak marker in the chart is at 241 keV and other peaks at 295, 351, are the markers for radioactive lead. Then the other largest peak is for Bismuth 214 at 609 etc. The large blue coloured peak is the secondary X-rays, a product of a test chamber not being lined with copper, and the smaller blue coloured peak is Potassium K40 in my natural background. These results suggest this contamination is not from Fukushima because of the presents of Bismuth 214.



Information on Brazil nuts.,

1. Brazil nut trees produce fruit almost exclusively in pristine forests.

2. The fruit takes 14 months to mature after pollination of the flowers.

3. Around 20,000 tons of Brazil nuts are harvested each year, of which Bolivia accounts for about 50%, Brazil 40% and Peru 10% (2000 estimates).

If I can detect radioactive Lead and Bismuth in Brazil nuts at these levels, it  suggests there must also be levels of stable lead present. I have taken Brazil nuts off my diet. If I had detected this in any other food, I would do the same.

It has been known for a long time that Brazil nut trees are bio-accumulating radium that can be found in most soils, because of their very deep root systems.

I was under the impression until I tested them, that the higher radioactivity in Brazil nuts was just caused by the extra concentration of natural occurring K40 in them like a Banana. It appears that it has been known for a long time that they also contained radioactive Lead and Bismuth.

Quote,

“It’s believed Brazil nuts have 1,000 times more radium than the next most radioactive food. While extensive studies have yet to be conducted, the amount of radiation in a Brazil nut is still small when compared to radiation encountered in everyday life, and it’s not believed to pose any serious health risk, regardless of the quantities ingested.”

If I can detect radioactive Lead and Bismuth in Brazil nuts it also suggests there must also be levels of stable lead also present. Personal choice, I have taken Brazil nuts off my diet. If I had detected these isotopes at these levels in any other food I would do the same.

Brazil nuts need further testing by others with this sort of equipment, to verify this. Note, samples harvested from different locations may test differently.


Local Rain Water & Soil Test Reports



There has been no definitive detection of Cesium-137 in any local environmental tests so far. If it is present, it is below the sensitivity of the test equipment. Radon-222 and occasionally Radon-220 isotope decay daughters, plus trace amounts of Iodine I-129, Beryllium Be-7 and Lead Pb-210, have been detected in the rain water tests.

Both Iodine I-129, and Beryllium Be-7 can be created naturally in trace amounts by spallation in the upper atmosphere by cosmic rays. Other sources can be releases from nuclear power plants and nuclear accidents.  Lead Pb-210 is the decay daughter of naturally occurring Radon-222 decay. I-129, Be-7, and Pb-210, can also be released from nuclear power plants, and nuclear accidents.

The suggestion for the occasional Radon-220 decay daughter detection in the rain water tests, is volcanic activity. Radon-220 is a decay daughter of Thorium-232 which can be released during volcanic activity in volcanic ash. The signature 77 Kev X-ray peak detected in some of the rain water filter test results indicates the presents of Pb-212. Pb-212 is the decay daughter of Radon-220. See Th-232 decay chart below.
