There are increasing independent reports coming in from people with radiation testing equipment that is strongly suggesting that travelling to certain areas in the Northern Hemisphere could be a serious risk to you and your family's health. I know a lot of members travel, that is why I have written this article. Study the information in the articles provided, and do further research before making travel arrangements. It could mean the difference between life and death for you or a family member. Radiation fallout will not kill you instantly, but depending on the internal and/or external doses, it can considerably shorten one's life.
Last year the Japanese tourist industry was offering ten thousand free flights to Japan. They said that the Fukushima nuclear disaster was under control, and that is was now safe to travel there, as long as you stayed outside of the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster exclusion zone. The evidence provided here strongly suggests otherwise.
This very recent February 25th 2012 independent report shows a recording of 6.5 uS/Hr background level of radiation at Tokyo Station. For those who don't understand what 6.5 uS/Hr means, it is 65 times higher than our average local background, and ten times Chernobyl mandatory evacuation level. At this level, it should also be a mandatory evacuation zone, the same as the Fukushima nuclear disaster zone!
Tokyo railway station is a railway station in the Marunouchi business district of Chiyoda. Tokyo station is near the Imperial Palace grounds and the Ginza commercial district. It is the main intercity rail terminal in Tokyo, the busiest station in Japan in terms of number of trains per day, with over 3,000 trains per day, and the fifth-busiest in Eastern Japan in terms of passenger numbers.
Tokyo railway station has tens of thousands of men, women and children travelling through it daily. It means that a lot of radioactive dust has been transported from contaminated areas by travellers and it is also being stirred up as they move through the station.
Ingested radiation from contaminated food, liquids or air, radiates body cells with high doses of radiation for long periods of time. Radioactive dust breathed in is very dangerous because if it gets stuck in you lungs, it will irradiate the cell it is next to, and those around, it with high doses of radiation, and you can't walk away from it. Unlike a piece of radiation that maybe lying on the ground. So this is a very serious health issue for anyone travelling through, or working at the station.
Is it now necessary to own a Geiger Counter and learn how to use it properly, if you intend travelling overseas? This is a question some of you may have to ask. I will be available to show you how to use a Geiger counter at club meetings, for those who are interested.
This is the cheapest Geiger I have seen, but only if you already own an iphone.

Are aircraft flights across the Northern Hemisphere also becoming very risky?
All the evidence is suggesting that a lot of the fallout from Fukushima Nuclear disaster is still being released into the upper atmosphere in the Northern Hemisphere. When planes fly through this higher atmosphere, the radioactive fallout cloud is sucked into the cabin of the aircraft, together with radioactive hot particles.
This article by By Michael Collins, EnviroReporter.com documents a flight across America on December 23rd 2011. The big differences between him and his new wife, and the normal passengers, was that they took a Geiger counter and also wore respirators.
Hot particles where detected on their respirators at the end of the flight. Also they had readings as high as 1,238 CPM in flight, or over 36 times higher than the background radiation in the jet, at the terminal. This article clearly shows the dangers in travelling by air in the Northern Hemisphere at present. Pregnant women or small children are much more sensitive to the effects of radiation. So it is important that your family becomes fully aware of the risks of travelling overseas at present. If they are not aware of the risk, they can't take action to protect themselves.
These articles suggest that travel hubs are becoming concentrators of radioactive fallout carried around by people travelling through them. Again it is the ingested radiation that is the most dangerous, because you can't get away from it. Try as best you can to educate your families to the present risks, as there is no main stream media reporting of this issue.
I would like to point out again that the people in these reports are using radioactive testing equipment that clearly shows what they are reporting is true. So there is strong physical evidence to back up what they are saying!
UPDATE: 22 Febuary 2012 another report of high radiation levels when flying across America. It is normal to have raised radiation levels of 4x to 5x ground background levels when flying at high altitudes. This is way above that!
Measured radiation on a flight from Flint Michigan to San Diego, CA and @ 32.000 feet, "Radiation reached approx. 2.85 mcSv/h Microsiverts per hour"
