Japan is STILL dumping between 300 to 500 tons of water into the Pacific every single day, claiming there is no other option. Nuclear regulatory agencies have allowed this.
But how many know Japan stopped trying to treat that water to reduce its radiation levels over 2 years ago?
TEPCO decided to stop treating radioactive water at the Fukushima reactors; it was announced on Mar 18, 2014 through it’s electrical subsidiary TEPCO, the Tokyo Electric Power Company.
"Fukushima water decontamination suspended indefinitely, March 20, 2014."
"Around the world about two billion people live on fish and other now radioactive products from the sea.
Government propaganda outlets can be expected to gloss over the increased death rates as “natural” or as “something they ate.”
From a certain sick point of view, the radiation in the fish they ate that will kill them was “something they ate.”
The New York Times and other establishment “outlets” will interview scores of scientists on the issue who will say they are “befuddled,” amazed,” “surprised,” “stunned” and they “don’t know the cause.”
THE TEA ROOM HAS MANY TIMES SHOWN THE EFFECTS OF BIO-ACCUMULATION THROUGH THE FOOD CHAIN, HUMANS BEING AT THE TOP OF THAT CHAIN AND EVERYTHING WE INGEST BEING EITHER MORE OR LESS CONTAMINATED.
"Signs are that nuclear isotopes are already moving up the local food chain.
How this continuing contamination will affect marine life, or humans, is still unclear.
But scientists agree that the governments of Japan, the United States, and other nations on the Pacific Rim need to ramp up studies of how far this contamination might spread and in what concentrations."
THE ABOVE VIDEO WAS MADE IN SOUTH KOREA BY A GOVERNMENT-FUNDED TV NETWORK.
THE KOREANS, LYING SO CLOSE TO JAPAN, HAVE BEEN SOME OF THE MOST VOCAL ABOUT THE ONGOING CONTAMINATION OF THE PLANET BY JAPAN.
THE VIDEO IS A "MUST-SEE", BUT FOR BREVITY'S SAKE, CLICK <HERE> TO JUMP TO THE LAST 10 MINUTES OR SO OF THE FILM.
THAT LINK SHOULD TAKE YOU TO MINUTE 28:00.
WHILE OTHER NATIONS LIKE CHINA, NEW ZEALAND AND SOUTH KOREA, TO NAME A FEW, DO WARN THEIR CITIZENS NOT TO EAT ANY OR EAT LESS SEAFOOD/FISH, AMERICA'S "PROTECTIVE AGENCIES" SIMPLY DON'T GIVE A DAMN IF WE EAT IT OR NOT.
THEY'VE STOPPED MONITORING JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING.
ALSO, LIKE MANY EXPERTS SAID, THE WATER DECONTAMINATION IDEA WAS AS LOGICAL AS THE ICE WALL...WHICH ALSO FAILED.
DECONTAMINATION OF RADIOACTIVE WATER WAS SIMPLY A TEST OF AN UNPROVEN DEVICE WHICH FAILED TIME AFTER TIME, AND THE "FILTRATION SYSTEM" COULD NEVER "FILTER OUT" THE TRITIUM, AS TEPCO ADMITTED.
TEPCO AND THE ABE GOVERNMENT BUSTED FOR LYING, AGAIN.
"Among the company’s record of more than 200 proven falsifications of safety inspection reports, TEPCO admitted in 2002, to falsifying reports about cracks that had been detected in core shrouds at Fukushima's reactors number 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, as far back as 1993.
The known nuclear cover-ups—undoubtedly just the tip of the iceberg—began to emerge in 1995.
According to the Nuclear Industrial Safety Agency (NISA), TEPCO had attempted to hide cracks in reactor vessel shrouds in 13 units, including Fukushima Daiichi (6 reactors), Fukushima Daini (4 reactors), and Kashiwazaki-Kariwa (7 reactors).
Hitachi, which conducted the air tightness checks for TEPCO, was also implicated in the manipulation of test results.
On two occasions, the pressure readings in Fukushima’s No 1 reactor were unstable, so workers were instructed to inject air into the container to make it appear that pressure was being maintained.
The Liberal Democratic Party (LDP), which ruled Japan virtually continuously from 1955, when it was formed, to 2009, feigned concern at these blatant safety breaches, with Seiji Murat, Vice Minister for Economy, Trade and Industry, declaring the company had “betrayed the public’s trust over nuclear energy”.
TEPCO’s senior executives duly resigned, and their successors formally pledged to take all necessary measures to prevent any further fraud. By the end of 2005, generation had been restarted at all suspended plants, with government approval.
A little over a year later, in March 2007, the company announced that an internal investigation had revealed a large number of unreported incidents.
These included an unexpected unit criticality in 1978 and additional systematic false reporting, which had not been uncovered in 2002.
Once more, the firm was publicly remorseful. “We apologise from the bottom of our heart for causing anxiety to the public and local residents,” TEPCO vice president Katsutoshi Chikudate said.
The company was permitted to keep operating.
Several months later, in July 2007, the 6.8 quake that shut down TEPCO’s Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear plant demonstrated the real nature of the company’s assurances.
The earthquake, 10 kilometres offshore from the Honshu west coast plant, caused subsidence of the main structure, ruptured water pipes, started a fire that took five hours to extinguish, and triggered radioactive discharges into the atmosphere and sea.
The company initially said there was no release of radiation, but admitted later that the quake had released radiation and had spilled radioactive water into the Sea of Japan.
The 2007 closure of TEPCO’s largest nuclear plant contributed to the company posting its first ever losses. It is now the world’s most indebted utility, with current net borrowings of $88 billion.
This financial crisis has driven management to slash costs and boost output from its other plants, no doubt also at the expense of safety.
TEPCO’s “2020 Vision” document pledges to “accelerate cost reduction efforts” and raise the non-fossil fuel (mainly nuclear) proportion of its generation from 33 to 50 percent.
The current meltdown and radiation emergency at Fukushima is the inevitable product of the protracted record of TEPCO-government collaboration, which is being continued by the present Prime Minister"
KNOWING ALL THIS, KNOWING THAT SEA WALL WAS NOT HIGH ENOUGH, KNOWING THE EMERGENCY GENERATORS WOULD BE RENDERED USELESS WHERE THEY WERE IF A TSUNAMI STRUCK, THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT AND NUCLEAR REGULATORY AGENCIES LET THE PLANT RUN ANYWAY.
"Residents protested as the company commenced construction, in the dark of night, on two nuclear plants at Iwai Island, in the Inland Sea south of Honshu, Japan’s main island, and close to Kyushu island, where a volcano blew that same week. (March, 2011)
Scenes of the Iwai Island protest were broadcast on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s 7.30 television program on March 15.
The footage was recorded by documentary film-maker Hitomi Kamanaka, who resigned from the state broadcaster NHK after it refused to run her material criticising the country’s nuclear power companies.
TEPCO has been shielded by governments and the media for decades because, as pointed out in “The implications of the Japanese catastrophe”, the Japanese ruling elite turned to the breakneck development of nuclear power in the late 1960s and early 1970s to shield itself from dependence on imported oil.
Now more than 40 years-old, TEPCO’s Fukushima Daiichi plant was the very first to begin operational generation, on March 26, 1970.
TEPCO’s litany of deliberate violations of the most elementary safety standards, enabled by the collusion of one government after another, is a graphic demonstration of the intolerable danger posed to the world’s population by private profit at all costs."
CNN REPORTED ON THE UNRAVELING OF OLDER, PRE-DISASTER COVERUPS IN 2002.
TWO YEARS PRIOR TO THAT, CNN ALSO REPORTED THE COMPUTER PROBLEMS PLAGUING THREE JAPANESE NUCLEAR FACILITIES:
"The potentially most serious problem occurred at 8:58 a.m. local time on
Jan. 1 at the Fukushima Number 2 nuclear power plant of Tokyo Electric
Power Co. (TEPCO).
The system that shows the position of the control rods in the reactor
core failed, leaving operators unable to gauge the rods' positions using the system."
EVEN 'JAPAN TIMES' SHAMED TEPCO FOR BEING SO "FRUGAL" THAT 48,000 OF ITS COMPUTERS WERE STILL USING WINDOWS XP, WHICH HAD SERIOUS SECURITY FLAWS AFTER XP WAS NO LONGER UPDATED BY MICROSOFT.
"NBC News on Wednesday evening (March 16), AFTER THE DISASTER, ran several short ‘news’ clips about Japan’s nuclear crises.
One of these was clearly intended to distance General Electric and the nuclear Regulatory Commission from Japan, a sort of betrayal of the culture of secrecy and their historically incestuous relationship.
To perform damage control, improve investor confidence, assuage public fears of a similar catastrophe at one of the 110 reactors in the U.S.
The NBC broadcast began by pointing out that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has advised U.S. citizens who are within 50 miles (80 kilometers) of the Fukushima reactors to evacuate or stay indoors. Cut to the U.S. Congress, where NBC brings us a very, very short clip from a special Senate hearing held on Wednesday March 16.
Suddenly the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is awake, and they care, and they are telling an equally awake and suddenly concerned U.S. Congress that they believe that Japan has covered up the extent of the nuclear disaster.
“Radiation levels are extremely high,” proclaims NRC chief Dr. Gregory B. Jaczko. "The spent fuel pools are dry. Secondary containment at the reactor [No. 3] has been breached, but Tokyo is denying this.”
Finally, NBC informs its viewers, in passing, that General Electric — the designer and salesmen of the GE Mark I Boiling Water reactors that General Electric dumped on Fukushima back in the 1970s — is a part owner of MSNBC. Full disclosure, of course."
I FINALLY FOUND A LIST OF THE RADIOACTIVE PARTICLES FOUND INSIDE NUCLEAR REACTORS. OUR MAINSTREAM MEDIA HAS FAILED AND FAILED TO LIST THEM ALL, SO HERE THEY ARE, AND AS YOU CAN SEE, SOME HAVE HALF-LIVES OF HUNDREDS AND EVEN BILLIONS OF YEARS:
[SOURCE: A Guide to Nuclear Power Technology (Wiley, 1984).]
"All of these fissionable products are potentially released and they have varying degrees of half-lives, mobility, migration and toxicity depending on factors like atmospheric conditions, temperature of the reactor core and operating capacity (megawatts) at shutdown, and the presence of coolants.
The most dangerous of these are iodine 131 (I-131), cesium 137 (Cs-137), strontium 90 (Sr-90), cobalt 60 (Co-60) and plutonium 239 (Pu-239).
All of these negatively affect the human body and all of these have been released in nuclear power ‘accidents’, during venting of radioactive steam or flushing of radioactive water, and other ‘events’.
Another deadly isotope which seems to consistently ‘escape’ from nuclear power sites is cobalt 60 (Co-60), half-life 5.2 years.
Co-60 accumulates and migrates through steam generator tubes and other secondary coolant processes, in core shrouds and reactor pressure vessels, and many of the other components of nuclear reactors whose histories of failures are thoroughly documented.
During nuclear fission, the uranium from the fuel rods splits into many radioactive fission products that can then escape during a nuclear power ‘event’.
These include dangerous Noble Gases (xenon and krypton); Hallogens (including iodines and bromines); Alkali Metals (including cesium 137); Alkaline earths (including barium 133 and strontium 90) and the elements Tellurium and Ruthenium.
Some fissionable elements decay rapidly and are inconsequential during releases, but some decay into other, more deadly nuclides. The most dangerous nuclides have half-lives in days (I-131 = 8 days), years (Cs-137 = 30 years) or centuries (Pu-239 = 24,000 years). Half-life is the time it takes for one-half of the material to decay — lest we forget that the other half is still present."
FUKUSHIMA HAS BECOME A NUCLEAR WAR WITHOUT TROOP DEPLOYMENT OR THE LAUNCH OF NUCLEAR WARHEADS.

The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant is still so toxic that even the robots tasked with cleaning up the site after three catastrophic meltdowns can't survive inside them.
The "Fukushima marker", cesium 134, has been found in fish off the American coast, rain water and milk as well as in crops inland of America's west coast all the way to Wisconsin and Maine, and is still found in alarmingly high levels offshore of Japan.
South Korea, Taiwan and China have threatened to sue the Japanese government for radioactive contamination of their air, seafood and crops and have banned most imports from Japan..
In retaliation, Japan has sued to FORCE ALL nations to accept their foods.

MEANWHILE, TEPCO CONTINUES TRYING TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER...
FALSE INFORMATION, MANIPULATED DATA, OUTRIGHT LIES ARE, HOWEVER, FINALLY CATCHING UP TO THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE VERY PREVENTABLE DISASTER THAT CAUSED THE GLOBAL CATASTROPHE WE ARE ALL NOW TRYING TO LIVE WITH.... THE FUKUSHIMA DAI'ICHI POWER PLANT MELTDOWNS AND THE CONTINUAL LEAKING OF RADIATION INTO OUR AIR, OCEAN AND SOIL.
"Additional radiation has been reported at the Onagawa complex (Japan), but this was explained away as wind-blown radioactivity from the Fukushima complex. Meanwhile, in the same reports, officials said that radiation was not leaking from Fukushima, or it was minimal, and there was no cause for alarm. "
THE MAP ABOVE WAS RELEASED BY TEPCO IN FEBRUARY, 2016, AND SHOWS THE RADIATION LEVELS, COLOR-CODED, WITH THE LOWEST LEVELS IN DARK BLUE, THE HIGHEST IN RED, BUT NOTICE THE HIGHER READINGS INTERMINGLED AMONG THE LOWER READINGS.
HOW CAN THE PLANT ITSELF SHOW NO OR VERY LITTLE RADIOACTIVITY READINGS WHEN THE SURROUNDING 50 MILES RADIUS AND ALL THE WAY TO TOKYO SHOWS HIGHER THAN INSIDE THE FACILITY?
HOW CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN THAT?
WHY WOULD ANYONE BELIEVE THESE READINGS AFTER TEPCO HAS BEEN CAUGHT LYING ABOUT HIGH READINGS SO MANY TIMES BEFORE AND HAS EVEN BEEN CAUGHT SHIELDING ITS OWN MONITORS TO PRODUCE LOWER READINGS?
"Japanese citizens want answers about altered Fukushima photo:

NATIONAL SECURITY WAS A LIE!
TEPCO AND ABE ALL DENY THE CORIUM HAS ESCAPED CONTAINMENT.
BOTH ABC AUSTRALIA AND RT REPORTED ON THE UNCONTROLLABLE FISSION THAT IS HAPPENING EVERY DAY BENEATH THOSE REACTORS WHERE THE CORIUM HAS ESCAPED:
"The absolutely uncontrollable fission of the melted nuclear fuel assemblies continue somewhere under the remains of the station… [TEPCO's] plan for Fukushima nuclear power plant implies a 30-40 year period… Yet experts doubt the present state of technology is sufficient to deal with the unprecedented technical task."
FIRST TEPCO SAID 10 YEARS TO FULL SHUTDOWN, THEN 20, THEN 40, AND NOW THEY'RE SAYING IT COULD BE 100 YEARS OR LONGER.
WHEN WILL SOMEONE DEMAND THEY BE RELIEVED OF OVERSEEING THE CLEANUP?
FROM 'FUKUSHIMA DIARY', MAY, 2015:
TEPCO calculates the radiation being emitted from the exposed fuel to be far in excess of 1000 sieverts per hour that the endoscope is rated to handle.In this level of radiation, human starts vomiting within a minute and dies within 8 minutes. It is impossible to have human work inside of container vessel.
If there is any good news in this it is, according to TEPCO, while the level inside the reactor is extremely high it is resulting in an atmospheric dose of only 6.1 Sieverts per hour.
That shouldn’t be taken lightly however, that just means instead of being lethal in just 15 seconds near the pedestal or 2 to 3 minutes where the 73 sieverts per hour, it would take an hour to be lethal to 100% of the population in the location of the measured atmospheric dose.
THE PEOPLE OF JAPAN ARE PUSHING BACK AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT, JAPAN'S NUCLEAR ENERGY COMMISSION AND TEPCO, FORCING THE TRUTH TO SLOWLY BE TOLD.
Excerpts from an article by Japanese independent media outlet OurPlanet-TV summarizing the July 16 meeting, translated by Dr. Yuri Hiranuma, Aug. 3, 2014:
- Professor Shinzo Kimura [who conducted] field investigations in Chernobyl, reported that currently there are many cases of thyroid cancer [...] more than 250 km away from Chernobyl.
- Matsumoto City Mayor Sugenoya, who has provided medical care to children with thyroid cancer in Belarus [said] even in areas contaminated with low-level radiation with an annual radiation level below 1 mSv, residents showed a depressed immune function, hematopoietic disorders, and perinatal abnormalities [and] medical personnel are not allowed to refer to the Chernobyl accident.
- Okayama University Professor Tsuda pointed out that there is no end
of the number of researchers who say, “No cancer occurrence is expected
from radiation exposure dose under 100 mSv,” after the Fukushima
accident. Tsuda candidly said researchers should refrain from making
such statements. [...]
As of the end of March 2014 [Nakadori, the central region of Fukushima that is 40-80 km from the Daiichi plant] had the highest detection rate [of thyroid cancer,] as much as 11 times higher than Aizu [western region of Fukushima, over 80 km from the plant]. [...] thyroid cancers from municipalities other than Aizu region showed rates which were 15 to 40 times higher [than data from the National Cancer Center]. He sounded an alarm [...]
- “It’s only been 3.1 to 3.2 years but there are so many cases observed in Fukushima. We need to take immediate countermeasures.” [...] “They are still exposed to radiation. We can’t wait until the results come out. [...] All of us as well as Fukushima residents are being exposed to radiation.”
- During this session, the audience applauded several times when witnesses spoke.
JAPANESE PHYSICIANS, LONG UNDER A GAG ORDER, ARE SPEAKING OUT:
"We have firsthand knowledge from at least a half dozen Japanese doctors… who have said they have been threatened… if they speak frankly to their patients about the health effects that they’re experiencing; or if they frankly speak in public about their fears — and, in fact, measurements — of how bad radioactive illnesses really are. So we know of at least a half a dozen doctors who are being ‘sat on’, and if 6 are, you can be certain that many more are as well."
"Like the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and the International Atomic Energy Agency, Japanese officials have a long history of covering up ugly nuclear realities.
In a recent WikiLeaks diplomatic cable, politician Taro Kono, a high-profile member of Japan’s lower house, told U.S. diplomats that the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (MITI) — the Japanese government department responsible for nuclear energy — has been “covering up nuclear accidents and obscuring the true costs and problems associated with the nuclear industry.”
In 2002 “the chairman and four executives of TEPCO, the company that owns the stricken Fukushima plant, resigned after reports that safety records were falsified.”
REVEALED BY A LEADING JAPANESE NEWSPAPER, ASAHI SHIMBUN, JUNE 15, 2016, HIGHLY RADIOACTIVE SOIL DISCOVERED AT FUKUSHIMA HIGH SCHOOL.
GOVERNMENT FAILS TO PROTECT CHILDREN
Highly radioactive soil that should by law be removed by the central government has been left dumped in the corner of a schoolyard here because the construction of a local storage site for waste has been stalled.
Students at the school were not given an official warning that the radioactive soil was potentially hazardous to their health.
When a teacher scooped up soil samples at the site and had their radiation levels measured by two nonprofit monitoring entities--one in Fukushima and another in Tokyo--the results showed 27,000-33,000 becquerels of radioactive cesium per kilogram.
The law stipulates that the central government is responsible for disposing of waste measuring more than 8,000 becquerels per kilogram.
A large amount of contaminated soil--far more radioactive than in the current incident--is still buried in the schoolyard for temporary storage.
Principal Seiichi Takano at Fukushima North High School said,
“The prefectural board of education has not set any criteria for us to conclude at what levels of radiation are hazardous to people."
The school does not plan to take extra safety measures with regard to the storage of the polluted dirt.
The teacher who took the samples disagrees.
“Since it is highly radioactive, we should remind students and staff of the potential danger while taking a step to prevent the spread of polluted dust during cleanup,” said the teacher."
A MAYOR PLEADS FOR THE CHILDREN...
Interview with Katsutaka Idogawa, former mayor of Futaba, Fukushima Prefecture, April 21, 2014:
At 9:30 in:Katsutaka Idogawa, former mayor of Futaba in Fukushima Prefecture: There are still about 2 million people living in the prefecture, who have all sorts of medical issues. The authorities claim this has nothing to do with the radiation fallout from Fukushima. I demanded that the authorities substantiate their claim in writing, but they ignored my request. There are some terrible things going on in Fukushima.
The biggest problem is that there is no one to help us. I talked to local authorities in different places in Fukushima, but no one would listen to me. They believe what the government says, while in reality radiation is still there — and it is killing children.
They are dying of heart conditions, asthma, leukemia, thyroid complications.
Lots of kids are extremely exhausted after school, others are simply unable to attend PE classes. But the authorities are still hiding the truth from us, and I don’t know why.
Don’t they have children of their own?
It hurts so much to know they can’t protect our children.
At 22:30 into video:
- Sophie Shevardnadze, host: The United Nations report on the radiation fallout from Fukushima says no radiation-related deaths or acute diseases have been observed among the workers and the general public exposed. So it’s not that dangerous after all? Or is there not enough information available to make proper assessments?
- Idogawa: This report is completely false. The report was made by a representative of Japan – Professor Hayano. Representing Japan, he lied to the whole world from the UN podium. It’s a real shame that the authorities hide the truth from the whole world, from the UN. We need to admit that actually many people are dying, we are not allowed to say that.
At 8:00 in
- Katsutaka Idogawa, former mayor of Futaba, Fukushima Prefecture: I’d like to show you a table with radiation levels around Chernobyl. Radiation levels [for evacuation] around Fukushima are four times higher than in Chernobyl, […] Exposing people to the current levels of radiation in Fukushima is a violation of human rights. It’s terrible. […] In many cases, evacuees are forced to return.
- Idogawa: I’m really ashamed for my country, but I have to speak the truth for the sake of keeping our planet clean in the future. […] The same thing happened with Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The authorities lied to everyone. They said it was safe. They hid the truth. That’s the situation we are living in."
THINK THAT'S BAD?
Japanese Students Forced To Eat Radioactive Food To 'Educate' Them
"The mayor of Kawasaki City is educating students on the dangers or radiation by forcing them to eat radioactive food.
Japanese mayor says students are gaining knowledge by eating radioactive food in school lunches. "
Published on Sep 19, 2013 by AGreen Road Project...
The video shows the continued lies, the ongoing deceit about radiation in the foods Japanese farmers are selling, in the fish that find their way into Japanese markets, and all the while, the Abe government keeps quiet, denying the very things these people tell us in the video.
"We won't eat it ourselves, but we sell it."
11:17 into the video--
"Can I say something about this? You keep saying "harmful rumor" and "harmful rumor". It is not a rumor. Do you understand?
If it is simply a rumor, there would not be a basis for it.
Our farmland has been seriously contaminated.
As bad as thousands of Bq.
I measured my own land.
It is there.
If you are saying that is is a bad rumor, please, please get rid of that contamination from my land."
Farmers are encouraged by the Japan government to raise food and catch fish in radiation contaminated areas and they won't be able to feed their families if they don't. It's a tragedy all around.

INVESTIGATIONS BEGIN TO UNTANGLE THE WEB OF DECEIT....
THEY WERE WARNED IN 1986 THAT THE FUKUSHIMA REACTORS WERE FLAWED!
"According to a Nuclear Information and Resource Service fact sheet on Fukushima, in 1986, Harold Denton, then the NRC’s top safety official, told an industry trade group that the GE “Mark I [BWR] containment, especially being smaller with lower design pressure, in spite of the suppression pool, if you look at the WASH 1400 safety study, you’ll find something like a 90% probability of that containment failing.
Xinhua, May 23, 2016: "Truths deliberately covered about Fukushima surface over five years —
Facts about the Fukushima nuclear disaster… kept emerging over the past five years after the mishap took place, revealing the real face of the disaster. In front of the local government of Iidate Village in Japan’s Fukushima Prefecture [a device reads] 0.38 microsieverts/hour… However, volunteer Yoichi Tao, who majored in physics, said the figure of radiation on their own device is 8 to 10 times of the official one.
According to Tao, the government dispatched the military to wipe out the nearby nuclear radiation on the ground in advance, so the official figure looks very low. “That’s how the government did it,” he said… "
Xinhua, May 24, 2016: "The improper handling of the Fukushima aftermath by the Japanese government has had grave consequences… a Russian radiation expert has said…
Japan followed the suit of the former Soviet Union in playing down the disastrous consequences, said Valery Stepanenko, a leading specialist in medical and environmental dosimetry and radiation safety… the Japanese government attempted to hide the truth…
After the disaster, lies and contradictive information emerged, making it impossible to decide the level of exposure… ”data of internal exposure were still left out,” he said… The consequence is dire… more than 160 teenagers in Fukushima Prefecture have been diagnosed with thyroid cancer, including suspect cases…"

"Some of the people are of the opinion that the only issue is thyroid cancer amongst children.
There have been a number of reports that show that there are other cancers; they have not actually been linked to the Chernobyl disaster because, as you know, there was a clamp down of information that made it impossible linking them up in the first years after Chernobyl.
But there are a large number of cancer and other diseases.
Moreover, there’s been independent studies that show there’s no threshold limit for what is known as a dose of ionizing radiation and the link to cancer and other diseases."

Speech by Kazuko Ito, Esq., member of the UN Women Regional Civil Society Advisory Group and Secretary General of Japan-based NGO Human Rights Now
(At 5:00 in), published by Cinema Forum Fukushima on July 30, 2014: Until now 74 cases of thyroid cancer were identified among affected children, so this is huge. However the government has no plan to expand the health monitoring system…
People, especially vulnerable groups such as women and children, are exposed to serious health risks…
The government is actively engaged with the safety propaganda, the government conducts no proper guidance regarding the risk of radiation — instead the government underestimates the low level radiation and actively disseminates opinions such as ‘No evidence of physical harm under 100 millisieverts per year.’
Before the accident we talk about 1 millisieverts a year, but now government talks about 100 millisieverts is ok, so how dangerous is it, you could imagine."

November 27, 2014 "Dr. Alan Lockwood, MD “Consuming food containing radionuclides is particularly dangerous. If an individual ingests or inhales a radioactive particle, it continues to irradiate the body as long as it remains radioactive and stays in the body.”
Dr. Andrew Kanter, MD “Children are much more susceptible to the effects of radiation and stand a much greater chance of developing cancer than adults.” “So it is particularly dangerous when they consume radioactive food or water.”

IN AN OPEN LETTER TO YOUNG ATHLETES PLANNING TO GO TO TOKYO IN 2020, 'COUNTERPUNCH' WROTE:
"In a residential area park in Tokyo, 230 km from Fukushima, the soil was found to have a radiation level of 92,335 Becquerels per square meter.
This is a dangerous level, comparable to what is found around Chernobyl ④ zone (the site of a nuclear catastrophe in 1986).
One reason this level of pollution is found in the capital is that between Tokyo and Fukushima there are no mountains high enough to block radioactive clouds. In the capital people who understand the danger absolutely avoid eating food produced in eastern Japan.
The distribution of irradiated food is also a problem. Food from near Fukushima will be sent to another prefecture, and then sent on, relabeled as produced in the second prefecture.
In particular, food distributed by the major food companies, and food served in expensive restaurants, is almost never tested for radiation."

SERIOUSNESS OF THE EXPLOSIONS REVEALED:
Excerpts from report by Dr Magdi Ragheb, Nuclear physicist at Univ. of Illinois (pdf), Dec 2015:
- A postulated full core meltdown… possibly causing a steam explosion was reportedly averted by judicious supplemental cooling.
- [H]eat signature in unit 3 may suggest a possible ejection of the concrete shield plug by the observed hydrogen or possibly steam explosion.
- Unit 3 was the only unit… that uses… MOX fuel… A reported long vertical crack running down the side of the containment vessel implies the possible occurrence of a steam explosion.
- Hydrogen or steam explosion tore out the upper part of the containment… smoke emanating from possible burning of the UO2 (MOX) fuel.
- Lateral horizontally propagating hydrogen explosion at second chimney from the right preceded the vertical suspected steam explosion at unit 3.
- Highly energetic vertically propagating hydrogen or possibly steam explosion at the Fukushima Daichi unit 3… was followed by a fire and reactor fuel damage. Heavy debris… was vertically ejected and is seen falling back down in the photograph… It bears some analogy to the complex aerodynamics of an “exploding vortex ring.”… Exploding vortices suggest a steam explosion occurrence at unit 3.
- The ejection of fuel parts from unit 3 would imply a more serious event than a hydrogen explosion in the form of a criticality excursion and a steam explosion…

FUKUSHIMA'S NUCLEAR MELTDOWNS ARE FAR WORSE THAN HAS SO FAR BEEN REVEALED, BUT THE JAPANESE PEOPLE AS WELL AS SOUTH KOREA AND CHINA ARE DEMANDING MORE IN-DEPTH INVESTIGATIONS UNTIL THE WHOLE STORY IS TOLD....
LET THIS GUY SHOW YOU HOW IT'S ALL COVERED OVER AND HIDDEN...
Martin Wright, Radiation Protection Senior Engineer at Diablo Canyon nuclear plant (California) — Diablo Canyon Power Plant (DCPP) Monitoring for Japan Nuclear Accident
Some of his "Presentation" Excerpts:
- Politics and Public Hysteria >> The public started to
freak out [about Fukushima] >> Anti-nukes fed the hysteria
>> Reporters wanted to come watch our technicians perform milk
sampling (we said no) PG&E did not want our picture linked with the
- Now the Big Question ????? How much did all this extra sampling cost? … about $40,000
- DCPP most likely saw the U-3 explosion which occurred on March 14 at
1100 JST. From PG&E meteorologist Ed McCarthy: “The straight line
distance from Fukushima to SLO is 5,066 miles.
Assuming an average wind speed of 50 mph [and] some meandering and adding 24 hours, I’d estimate that the parcel of air that you observed [left] Japan between 3/13/2011 @1600 JST and 3/14/2011 @ 1600JST.”
- "Thoughts and Lessons Learned… >> Control initial data
until EPA and State are onboard.
Let the State notify the public and explain concentrations.
Set up company PR contacts…
>> Keep colleagues informed of what isotopes are coming their way."
DO YOU SEE THE DEVIOUS WAY THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY STICKS TOGETHER AND DENIES THE TRUTH?
FUKUSHIMA IS A GLOBAL THREAT, MORE SO TODAY THAN WHEN THE FIRST MELTDOWN OCCURRED.
THE JAPANESE KNOW WHY AMERICA IS NOT COMPLAINING ABOUT THIS AND THIS ONE'S TAKE ON IT MADE ME VERY ANGRY.
Interview with nuclear engineer Hiroaki Koide (translation by Prof. Robert Stolz, transcription by Akiko Anson), published Mar 8, 2016 (emphasis added):
- Now, strontium-90 [Sr-90] has been leaking from Fukushima into the
ocean, so it will eventually reach the United States, especially the
west coast. This much we are sure of… it is the masses of people who need to realize the impact of the contamination on them.
In the case of the Fukushima disaster, for example, they need to be aware that some radioactive material is reaching the North American coast, and the prevailing westerly winds will carry ANYTHING released into the atmosphere to the US…
- While we are not really sure [how much radioactive material has
leaked from Fukushima] we do know that a portion of this material will
ride the prevailing winds across the Pacific Ocean.
On the other hand, closer to the ground, the winds will be east, south, and north, and therefore this other portion will fall on Japan―and we can investigate the actual levels here: how much fell on this town, on this prefecture?
Adding these up, it seems to be only 2.4 PBq. Which is to say of the total fifteen PBq, 2.4, or roughly only 16%, fell on Japanese soil.
If the totals are higher, still a smaller share of the total contamination will have fallen on Japan compared with the Pacific, with the largest portion falling on the west coast of the United States.
So why don’t we hear complaints from the US?
Why are there no calls for compensation?
Whenever someone asks me this, I simply say that there just aren’t any such complaints.
Well, the levels released by the US during ALL the atmospheric testing were tens of times greater than Fukushima.
They are the criminals, so they cannot ask for compensation from Japan.
The U.S. government does not want to have to reflect on its own past, and I think they are eager to completely avoid bringing up anything like that conversation."
THE JAPANESE KNOW AMERICA'S GOVERNMENT WON'T COMPLAIN, THEY KNOW WE'RE GOING TO GET MORE RADIATION THAN JAPAN GETS, BUT THEY ARE ALSO QUITE SMUG IN BELIEVING OUR GOVERNMENT WILL NEVER COMPLAIN, NO MATTER HOW MANY OF US DIE FROM THIS.
ANOTHER LIE UNCOVERED...
A few weeks ago, TEPCO “said it had 'belatedly discovered’ an internal company manual containing standards and procedures for measuring radiological accidents.
Had it followed the procedures, it said, it would have had to classify the accident immediately as a meltdown event.
Critics accused the company of a deliberate cover-up,” the New York Times stated.
“I think it will become clear in the trial just what kind of facts the government, the parliamentary inquiry and prosecutors have been hiding,” said attorney Kaido."
CHINA HAS AGAIN WARNED JAPAN TO "COME CLEAN" ABOUT THE EXTENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE AND CONTAMINATION BY THE STILL-LEAKING REACTORS AT THE FUKUSHIMA DAI'ICHI NUCLEAR POWER PLANT.
CHINA'S STATEMENT CITED THE RECENTLY REVEALED FACT THAT A MANUAL DID EXIST TO TELL WORKERS HOW TO HANDLE THE DISASTER OF 03/11, AFTER TEPCO HAD SAID SUCH A MANUAL DID NOT EXIST.
"In April, a TEPCO senior official admitted that he knew of the criteria when the crisis was unfolding at the plant."
WHILE THE WORLD IS BEING SCARED AWAY FROM THE OLYMPIC GAMES IN BRAZIL OVER THE OVERBLOWN ZIKA VIRUS, NO ONE EXCEPT CHINA SEEMS CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR CITIZENS' HEALTH IF THEY VISIT AREAS OF JAPAN.
WHEN HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE FROM MANY NATIONS PLAN TO GO TO JAPAN FOR THE 2020 OLYMPICS, CHINA IS RIGHT....JAPAN NEEDS TO TELL THE WHOLE TRUTH, AT LAST, AND RIGHT NOW, INSTEAD OF DRIBBLING SMALL TRUTHS HERE AND THERE AFTER THEY'VE BEEN BUSTED LYING.
IT'S FINALLY ALL FALLING APART FOR TEPCO EXECUTIVES AND WE CAN BUT HOPE THAT THE ABE ADMINISTRATION DECIDES TO DO THE RIGHT THING AND MAKE ALL TRUTHS KNOWN BEFORE PEOPLE FLOCK THERE FOR THE OLYMPICS, WHICH EVENT HE HAS PUT FIRST OVER THE HEALTH OF HIS OWN PEOPLE AND THE HEALTH OF THOSE ATTENDING FOR 5 YEARS NOW.
PLANS FOR A DOME TO BE ERECTED OVER THE WORST-LEAKING OF THE REACTORS IS AN ADMISSION THAT IT (AND THE OTHERS) CONTINUES TO CONTAMINATE OUR AIR, WATER, SOIL AND EVERYTHING/EVERYONE THE FALLOUT TOUCHES.
"The No. 3 reactor building, where a meltdown occurred after the March 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and resulting tsunami, still has an extremely high reading of radiation.
[NOTE: THE #1 REACTOR SITE IS ALSO EMITTING LETHAL DOSES OF RADIATION: 9.7 sieverts per hour — enough to kill a human within an hour. AS SEEN ELSEWHERE IN THIS BLOG, #2 REACTOR IS ALSO LETHAL.]
TEPCO plans to first decontaminate the No. 3 reactor building and put up shields so that radiation levels drop when the massive cover is installed.
TEPCO plans to begin retrieving the fuel rods during fiscal 2017, starting in April next year."
WHAT ABOUT #1 AND #2?
Humanity now faces a deadly serious challenge coming out of Japan — the epicenter of radiation.
"Intentional efforts to downplay or dismiss this catastrophe reveal the immaturity of western civilization and some of our most acute human pathologies, including our worship of technology and our psychopathology of denial.
The widespread distortion and cover-ups to protect private profits, national and corporate interests, to fool and betray the people, are unacceptable.
Here are some of the deeper whats and whys and hows — some technical issues and the kinds of questions people need to ask — about the nuclear apocalypse unfolding on planet earth.
Prayers are not enough. It’s time to question everything, to put politics aside, to take personal action to halt nuclear expansion and defend ourselves from this industrial juggernaut.
While the absence of cooling water facilitated the nuclear crises in Japan, most likely some major reactor components (proven unsafe) also failed under the seismic stresses of the 9.0 quake.
Key components likely cracked or shattered.
The tsunami and huge aftershocks advanced the chaos.
These factors were complicated by the loss of offsite electrical power (an electrical BLACKOUT), the failure of emergency diesel generators, and the subsequent loss-of-coolant (water).
Embrittlement of nickel-based superalloys that comprise reactor internals was flagged as a major safety issue as early as the 1960s, yet such problems were bureaucratically dismissed, covered over, buried in paperwork and regulatory studies produced by the NRC (“NUREG” documents), and ignored.
Intergranular stress corrosion cracking of BWR core shrouds (the core shroud is next to fuel rods deep inside) is another major safety issue in GE designed BWRs built by Hitachi at Fukushima, and these plague every BWR reactor in the U.S."
CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE CHARGES FOR 3 EXECS, AT LAST!
Five years after the meltdown of Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power plant, three former top executives of the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) have been indicted on charges of criminal negligence, according to The New York Times.
“The three executives — Tsunehisa Katsumata, 75; Sakae Muto, 65 (no relation to Ruiko Muto); and Ichiro Takekuro, 69 — are accused of failing to take measures that would have protected the nuclear plant from the damage the tsunami wrought,” the New York Times reported.
Katsumata is the former TEPCO chairman, while Muto and Takekuro worked as heads of the plant’s nuclear division, reports the Times.
The three claimed it was impossible for them to foresee the disaster, which was invoked by a powerful earthquake that triggered a 15-meter tsunami, resulting in the meltdown of three of Fukushima’s Daiichi reactors and the displacement of 100,000 residents.
But critics argue they COULD predict the meltdown.
Some engineers HAD pushed for the 30-foot sea wall protecting the plant to be built higher, aware that a tsunami could produce wavesHIGHER THAN 30 FEET.
TO SAVE MONEY, TEPCO DIDN'T BOTHER TO REMEDY THAT FLAWED DESIGN.
Japan’s criminal justice system initially refused to bring charges against the former TEPCO executives, citing a lack of evidence. Their decision angered anti-nuclear campaigners, as well as Fukushima residents gravely affected by the disaster.
Fortunately, citizens were given recourse via a “rarely used” law that allows them to form committees that are able to “examine prosecutors’ decisions on whether to indict suspects,” reports the Times.
“Prosecutors in Japan rarely lose; about 99 percent of indictments end in guilty verdicts. But their record in cases forced on them by citizens’ review panels is much weaker. Almost by definition, such cases involve charges that prosecutors saw little hope of proving, and legal experts say most end in acquittals.”
“Two such committees revived the Fukushima case, and both determined that the Tepco executives should be criminally charged.”
One of the committees includes the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Plaintiffs Group, created by nuclear power opponent Ruiko Muto. “This is a relief for the tens of thousands of victims who are still dealing with hardships and anguish,” said Muto in response to the indictments. “It’s wrong that no one has taken responsibility.”
According to the Times, the tsunami destroyed the three reactors in March 2011, but it wasn’t until May that TEPCO disclosed to the public the extent of the damage.
A few weeks ago, TEPCO “said it had belatedly ‘discovered’ an internal company manual containing standards and procedures for measuring radiological accidents. Had it followed the procedures, it said, it would have had to classify the accident immediately as a meltdown event. Critics accused the company of a deliberate cover-up,” the New York Times stated.
“They knew that measures were necessary [to increase the height of the seawall and move generators to higher ground] , but for economic reasons they did nothing,” said Yuichi Kaido, a lawyer and politician who supports the Fukushima plaintiffs’ group.
The impacts of Fukushima are still spread wide and far, impacting humans, wildlife and the environment. Studies suggest the radioactive disaster is to blame for population decline and genetic damage in animals, insects and wildlife living nearby when the radioactive material was released.
As far as the actual town of Fukushima goes, only 440 of its 8,042 residents have returned, according to Reuters, and they’ve done so reluctantly.
Most expect the region to go extinct due to its inability to produce food, or rather, clean food.
WHEN THERE'S TOO MUCH RADIATION, JUST RAISE THE ALLOWABLE DOSE!
Prior to the accident, the maximum permissible dose for Japanese nuclear workers was 100 mSv in any one year, but on 15 March 2011, the Japanese Health and Labor Ministry enforced the permitted 250 mSv limit, in light of the situation at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant.
Immediate symptoms of RADIATION SICKNESS become apparent if exposed to above 250 mSv per day. Symptoms include nausea and loss of appetite as well as damage to bone marrow, lymph nodes and the spleen. "
RADIATION FOOD LAB...HOW MUCH RADIATION IN THESE FOODS?
"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."
[NOTE: EVEN A QUICK READ AT THAT SITE WILL SHOW HOW THE AMERICAN AND JAPANESE GOVERNMENTS HAVE LIED TO US ALL.]
Newly released data shows Florida hit with highest level of radioactive material from Fukushima measured anywhere in world outside Japan — #1 out of more than 1,500 test results — Total radioactive iodine was up to 500% of amount reported. (September 26, 2014)
THEY ALSO LIE WHEN THEY SAY THAT LOW-LEVEL RADIATION IS SAFE....OUR OWN ATOMIC ENERGY SCIENTISTS WITH THE MANHATTAN PROJECT LONG AGO WARNED THAT NO RADIATION IS SAFE, NOT ONE WEE ATOM OF IT.
"It is scientifically established that low-level radiation damages tissues, cells, DNA and other vital molecules – causing programmed cell death (apoptosis), genetic mutations, cancers, leukemia, birth defects, and reproductive, immune and endocrine system disorders."
Even low-level radioactivity is damaging,
"The nuclear power cycle involves disease, despair and death from the uranium mining to daily operations to the nuclear waste “‘dumping’.
Uranium mines in Niger that have built France’s entire nuclear complex are toxic wastelands spreading radiotoxins across north and sub-Saharan Africa.
The Tuareg and Toubou nomads have been completely shattered by the confiscation, exploitation and irradiation of their lands by the nuclear complex.
Native Americans continue to suffer massive epidemics of disease, contamination and confiscation of lands in the Secret Nuclear War at the American Ground Zero: the nuclear complex has compounded the native American genocide begun in 1492. Daily contamination releases into water, soil and air occur at every operating nuclear reactor in the world.
There is no ‘disposal’ of deadly nuclear toxins that now exist to perpetuity, and yet wastes are typically dumped on poor communities like Barnwell, South Carolina, or native American lands.
Out of sight, out of mind: nuclear poisons are colorless, odorless, and deadly.
ENGINEERS HAVE LONG AGO ADMITTED THAT THEY CANNOT DESIGN A REACTOR THAT NEVER LEAKS.
IT'S JUST NOT POSSIBLE...THE END.
In his book, Normal Accidents, Charles Perrow says that multiple and unexpected failures are built into society's complex and tightly-coupled nuclear reactor systems.
Such accidents are unavoidable and cannot be designed around.
SimplyInfo.org Fukushima 5 Year Report
"According to the Petkau Effect long term low level radiation can potentially be MORE dangerous than a short high dose.
ADMISSIONS OF THE HAZARDS...
"As a nuclear plant ages, so does its equipment - and leaks generally increase."
NOTICE THAT WORD "INCREASE" BECAUSE THE CURSED THINGS LEAK ALL THE TIME, JUST MORE SO AS THEY AGE.
"Government regulations ALLOW radioactive water to be released into the environment containing "permissible" levels of contamination."
Permissible does not mean safe, OR HARMLESS.
"Detectors at reactors are set to allow contaminated water to be released, UNFILTERED, if below "permissible" legal levels."
WITH WHOSE PERMISSION?
NOT OURS, NOT THOSE WHO LIVE WITH HIGHER RISKS OF CANCERS NEAR THESE DEATH MACHINES, AND NOT THE MARINE LIFE BEING KILLED BY THE RELEASE OF RADIOACTIVE WASTE INTO THE PACIFIC!
WE'VE KNOWN FOR DECADES THAT NUKE PLANTS KILL MARINE LIFE ALL DAY, EVERY DAY.
This is documented in a major report released February 22, 2001 ("Licensed To Kill: How the nuclear power industry destroys endangered marine wildlife and ocean habitat to save money") by Nuclear Information and Resource Service.
IT'S ABOUT THE ECONOMICS INVOLVED, THE PROFITS, KEEPING INVESTORS HAPPY WHILE PUTTING HUMANITY LAST...
Professor Michel Chossudovsky, University of Ottawa:
"The crisis in Japan has been described as “a nuclear war without a war”. In the words of renowned novelist Haruki Murakami:
“This time no one dropped a bomb on us … We set the stage, we committed the crime with our own hands, we are destroying our own lands, and we are destroying our own lives.”Nuclear radiation –which threatens life on planet earth– is not front page news in comparison to the most insignificant issues of public concern, including the local level crime scene or the tabloid gossip reports on Hollywood celebrities.
While the long-term repercussions of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster are yet to be fully assessed, they are far more serious than those pertaining to the 1986 Chernobyl disaster in the Ukraine, which resulted in almost one million deaths.
(New Book Concludes – Chernobyl death toll: 985,000, mostly from cancer Global Research, September 10, 2010.
See also Matthew Penney and Mark Selden The Severity of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Disaster: Comparing Chernobyl and Fukushima, Global Research, May 25, 2011)
Moreover, while all eyes were riveted on the Fukushima Daiichi plant, news coverage both in Japan and internationally failed to fully acknowledge the impacts of a second catastrophe at TEPCO’s (Tokyo Electric Power Co Inc) Fukushima Daini nuclear power plant.
The shaky political consensus both in Japan, the U.S. and Western Europe is that the crisis at Fukushima has been contained.
The realties, however, are otherwise.
Fukushima 3 was leaking unconfirmed amounts of plutonium.
“While Chernobyl was an enormous unprecedented disaster, it only occurred at one reactor and rapidly melted down. Once cooled, it was able to be covered with a concrete sarcophagus that was constructed with 100,000 workers.
There are a staggering 4400 tons of nuclear fuel rods at Fukushima, which greatly dwarfs the total size of radiation sources at Chernobyl.”
( Extremely High Radiation Levels in Japan: University Researchers Challenge Official Data, Global Research, April 11, 2011)
The dumping of highly radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean constitutes a potential trigger to a process of global radioactive contamination.
Radioactive elements have not only been detected in the food chain in Japan, radioactive rain water has been recorded in California:
“Hazardous radioactive elements being released in the sea and air around Fukushima accumulate at each step of various food chains (for example, into algae, crustaceans, small fish, bigger fish, then humans; or soil, grass, cow’s meat and milk, then humans). Entering the body, these elements – called internal emitters – migrate to specific organs such as the thyroid, liver, bone, and brain, continuously irradiating small volumes of cells with high doses of alpha, beta and/or gamma radiation, and over many years often induce cancer”. ( Fukushima: Nuclear Apologists Play Shoot the Messenger on Radiation, The Age, April 26, 2011)
High levels of radiation have been recorded in the Tokyo metropolitan area, which has a population of 39 million (2010), more than the population of Canada, circa 34 million (2010).
There are indications that the food chain is contaminated throughout Japan:
Radioactive cesium exceeding the legal limit was detected in tea made in a factory in Shizuoka City, more than 300 kilometers away from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. Shizuoka Prefecture is one of the most famous tea producing areas in Japan.FOR A VERY IN-DEPTH STUDY OF THE JAPANESE DISASTER AND DECEPTION, ONE CAN ACCESS AN ENTIRE BOOK ON THE TOPIC AT http://www.globalresearch.ca/fukushima-a-nuclear-war-without-a-war-the-unspoken-crisis-of-worldwide-nuclear-radiation/28870]
A tea distributor in Tokyo reported to the prefecture that it detected high levels of radioactivity in the tea shipped from the city.
The prefecture ordered the factory to refrain from shipping out the product.
After the accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, radioactive contamination of tea leaves and processed tea has been found over a wide area around Tokyo.

Wall St. Journal, Oct 21, 2014:
YES, RADIATION FROM POWER PLANTS CAUSES CANCER.
"A South Korean court for the first time has ruled in favor of a plaintiff claiming… thyroid cancer was caused by radiation from six nuclear power plants located [5 miles] from her house…
“She has lived within 10 km of the plants for over 20 years and has thus been exposed to radiation for a long time.
Other than the radiation from the nuclear reactors, there’s no clear reason for her cancer,” the court said…
[A] government-commissioned study in 2011… showed women living within 5 km of nuclear plants had 2.5 times higher incidences of thyroid cancer… [In a study of the plaintiff's county by a] nuclear-power research institute… between July 2010 and December 2013, about 1.4%… were found to have thyroid cancer… in 2011 [women had] 114 cases out of 100,000 [0.11%]. "
UNLESS WE ALL BEGIN TO SPEAK UP, DEMAND A SOLUTION, DEMAND THE WHOLE TRUTH AND DEMAND OUR RIGHT TO LIFE, WE WILL ALL SIMPLY HAVE TO WATCH AS OTHERS OF US PERISH FROM THE FUKUSHIMA DISASTER AND/OR OTHER NUCLEAR "ACCIDENTS".
FROM GEOENGINEERING WATCH, THE FOLLOWING SUMS IT ALL UP IN EASY TO UNDERSTAND TERMS:
"Voices of reality are not appealing to the masses, no one wants to hear unpleasant truths.
The majority are not even willing to examine any facts that threaten their perception of reality. Soon, very soon, they will have no choice but to wake up.
The planet's energy balance has been horrifically altered. There is unimaginable inertia behind the wheels that are now turning, life on Earth is truly uncharted territory.
Fish are dying, wildlife is dying, the entire web of life is dying, but willful denial of verifiable realities continues to thrive.
The global fish die-off is already beyond catastrophic, but the “experts” seem to have little to offer in the way of answers.
Because those in power are largely in control of the chess board, at least for the moment.
Those who print the money (the bankers) control militaries, countries, and every imaginable institution down the line.
How can we expect the PAID “experts” to disclose the true severity of what we collectively face (and the true causes behind the converging catastrophes) when their paychecks and pensions almost always depend on them NOT disclosing the whole truth?
Those who are truly in the know and thus in a prime position to sound the alarm face much more dire consequences than the loss of their employment.
In regard to the global fish die-off, what don’t we hear from the “experts” and the media?
That the oceans (and fresh water lakes) are rapidly heating along with the rest of the planet.
That this heating de-oxygenates the water and fuels algae blooms which further de-oxygenate the water.
We don’t hear that warming oceans are causing mass deposits of formerly frozen methane to thaw and release, also contaminating and deoxygenating oceans.
And we certainly never hear a word from the “experts” about the ongoing climate engineering assault that is exacerbating the now runaway warming (in addition to contaminating the entire planet).
Of course, we also never hear about the military’s other devastating activities that are slaughtering marine life, or about the military’s willingness to lie about their actions.
And about Fukushima, yes, it is a catastrophe for the seas (and the planet as a whole), but there is much more to the story in regard to the fish die-offs.
The bottom line is that the vast majority of media sources (even “independent” sources), are only telling half-truths at best.
Read the Smithsonian Magazine article entitled “Why Are Chilean Beaches Covered With Dead Animals?“
Just within the last month, 40 tons of fish died in India, 65 tons of fish died in Cambodia, 70 tons of fish died in Colombia, and millions of fish “suddenly died” in Indonesia.
So why is this happening?
I don’t know.
Could it be possible that these mass deaths are somehow related to the alarming earth changes that we see happening all around us?
Without a doubt, we have seen a dramatic rise in seismic activity during the early portions of 2016.
There has been a series of very destructive earthquakes around the world in recent months, and once dormant volcanoes are coming to life all over the globe with distressing regularity.
Of course humanity has done much to destroy the planet as well, and we continue to deal with the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
I do think that it is very interesting to note that most of these mass fish deaths have happened in nations that border the Pacific Ocean.
Just look at what is happening up in Alberta right now.
I believe that we are entering the “perfect storm” that myself and so many others have been warning about for so long.
Is our climate really as damaged as the “experts” are telling us?
No, in reality, it is much much worse.
How fast is the planet warming?
The recently released data reflected on the 20 second animated graph below paints a very clear and very dire picture."
[PLEASE ALLOW TIME FOR THE ANIMATION TO RUN.]
[NOTE: IF YOU JUST WATCH THE DATES, YOU SEE THE PLANET'S WARMING INCREASE DRAMATICALLY AFTER WE WERE PLAGUED WITH ATOMIC WEAPONS/ATOMIC "ENERGY".
A NUCLEAR REACTOR IS SIMPLY A WAY TO BOIL WATER!
RADIATION CAUSES INTENSE HEAT!]
"Will global geoengineering help?
No, 70 years of global climate engineering has only helped to further fuel the overall warming of the planet.
Those in power have always known that climate engineering/solar radiation management/weather warfare would only ever cause immense and irreparable harm, geoenginering is a weapon of total control they will never willingly give up.
Man’s attempt to engineer earth’s life support systems is the absolute epitome of human insanity.
Geoengineering has played a major role in the dying of the seas.
The planet is heating so rapidly that we may see an ice free Arctic as early as September of this year, 2016.
All mainstream media and most “independent” media will not mention such dire front line data.
If the oceans die, the planet dies, and all of us with it.
Do your part in the most critical battle to sound the alarm on the climate engineering insanity, educate yourself and learn how to make the most effective difference in the fight to raise critical awareness."

WHY DID MAINSTREAM MEDIA STOP TALKING ABOUT RADIOACTIVE IODINE THAT IS STILL EMANATING FROM JAPAN?
UC San Francisco, Oct. 27, 2014:
"For the first time, researchers have found that exposure to radioactive iodine IS associated with more aggressive forms of thyroid cancer… Lydia Zablotska, MD [said]
“Our group has previously shown that exposures to [Chernobyl's] radioactive iodine significantly increase the risk of thyroid cancer…
The new study shows that radiation exposures are also associated with distinct clinical features that are more aggressive”… Zablotska said the findings have implications for those exposed to [Fukushima's] radioactive iodine fallout... “children or adolescents to the fallout are at highest risk and should probably be screened for thyroid cancer regularly, because these cancers are aggressive, and they can spread really fast…
Clinicians should be aware of the aggressiveness of radiation-associated tumors and closely monitor those at high risk.”… radioactive iodine [exposures] are associated with a whole spectrum of thyroid diseases…
Thyroid cancer is ordinarily rare among children, with less than one new case per million diagnosed each year… [In the study] researchers diagnosed 158 thyroid cancers among 11,664 [13,546 per million] subjects…"
Excerpts from a report by Dr. Yuri Hiranuma, a physician specializing neuromusculoskeletal medicine, published by Fukushima Voice version 2e, Aug 3, 2014:
- Toshihide Tsuda,
a physician and an epidemiologist at Okayama University, has just
emphatically stated that in certain Fukushima municipalities there was a
clear evidence of a thyroid cancer epidemic [...]
Calling this an “outbreak, occurring only 3.1 to 3.2 years after the accident” [...] “outbreak” of thyroid cancers in Fukushima children cannot be explained by the “screening effect,” when the data is analyzed and compared with the national cancer statistics as well as within Fukushima Prefecture against municipalities with the lowest exposure dose.
Critical of the commonly accepted notion that health effects do not occur below 100 mSv, Tsuda presented numerous published studies that proved otherwise.
“This Expert Meeting has not brought up these studies so I must do it” [...]
Tsuda also said that the Expert Meeting should consider the fact that all age groups including pregnant women were still being exposed to radiation in Fukushima Prefecture. [...] Tsuda said, “We are all being exposed to radiation in Japan”
- [Committee] Chairman Shigenobu Nagataki, emeritus professor at Nagasaki University, a former chairman of Radiation Effects Research Foundation, and a mentor to infamous Shunichi Yamashita [said] “Committee members, please do not hesitate to ask questions. Given what was just stated, it will be disastrous for this committee to have to conclude that there is an actual increase in thyroid cancer (due to the Fukushima accident).” [...] if the Expert Meeting were seriously considerate of the disaster victims [...] why would it be disastrous for this Expert Meeting to have a conclusion that cases of thyroid cancers might be increasing?
Japan Focus, Nov. 3, 2013:
Saito Minako is an award-winning literary critic, prolific author.
The translation [that follows] is from her weekly column “Column of Hon’ne (True Inner Feelings)”:
"Languages of politicians have always been treasure troves of lies and deception. But watching a number of new Japanese phrases the Abe Administration spews out one after another, I started to think that perhaps we even need a special new dictionary for this administration alone.
For example: With respect to the radioactive waste water from the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant, the administration used the phrase “being under control (kontororu sarete iru).”
But the situation is such that it is actually more fitting to say it is “impossible to control (seigyo fukano).”

"Ionizing radiation travels through our living tissue with much more energy than either natural chemical, or biological functions.
This extra energy tears mercilessly at the very fabric of what makes us recognizably human—our genetic material.
Elderly and people with immune disorders are more susceptible to ionizing radiation. Children and the unborn are especially susceptible because of their rapid and abundant cell division during growth.
Cancers linked to ionizing radiation exposure include most blood cancers (leukemia, lymphoma), lung cancer, and many solid tumors of various organs.
Birth defects can include downs syndrome, cleft palate or lip, congenital malformations, spinal defects, kidney, liver damage and more.
Evidence exists that radiation is permanently and unpredictably mutating the gene pool and contributing to its gradual weakening.
The New Scientist quotes a report that calls genetic or chromosomal instabilities caused by radiation exposure a "plausible mechanism" for explaining illnesses other than cancer, including "developmental deficiencies in the fetus, hereditary disease, accelerated aging and such non-specific effects as loss of immune competence."
A living being’s genetic material is the 'library' that houses the instructions for many important aspects of that being and his/her offspring, including the ability to defend against diseases.
If we allow ionizing radiation to tamper with our genes, it could cause irreversible damage, not just to this generation through cancer, but to future generations through gene mutations and ensuing disease."
IF WE CARE ABOUT OUR CHILDREN, WE MUST DEMAND IT ENDS.
IF WE DON'T END IT, HOW CAN WE FACE THE CHILDREN WHO WILL PERISH FROM THIS?
AS I HAVE SHOWN HERE MANY TIMES, RADIATION CAUSES HEATING, WHEREVER IT IS FOUND.
BUT IT'S NOT THE ONLY PROBLEM WE FACE.
AS THE PLANET HEATS, OTHER THINGS COME INTO PLAY.
ALL COME TOGETHER IN WHAT SOME SCIENTISTS ARE CALLING "THE PERFECT STORM FOR GLOBAL DISASTER".
Warnings of the Impending Storm are Visible:
• Four of the five largest and costliest earthquakes and tsunamis of the last 30 years occurred in 1 year, 2011. Conditional probability of an earthquake in the northwest U.S. has increased significantly due to changing pressures on crustal plates.
Some of America's oldest nuclear plants lie along the west coast .
• The world is on the brink of a severe shortage of food and water. Thanks to a new peak population of nearly nine billion, demand is outpacing supply which has been accelerated by severe droughts and water scarcity. This will affect food availability and cause spikes in food prices.
During the 2008 global food crisis, international leaders feared that intense food riots and protests could escalate into civil wars in parts of Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

Due to the combination of poor Russian and Canadian wheat harvests, as well as prolific wheat rust throughout Europe, 2010 saw wheat prices rise 90% over a period of just five weeks.
Dwindling wheat supplies and rapidly rising prices then led to threats of dire food shortages throughout the Middle East.

The richest Latin American nation, Venezuela, is now financially strapped and people are reported to be hunting pigeons, cats and dogs for food.
Across the globe people die from lack of clean water every day. Almost 800 million people have NO access to clean water.
Women and children spend 125 million hours each day collecting water. Every 90 seconds a child dies from a water-related disease.
• Warnings of solar flares from a “huge space storm” came to fruition MANY times since we entered the 21st century, with each one also releasing massive amounts of radiation in our direction.
On 2 April 2001, active region 9393 unleashed a major solar flare. Now reclassified as at least an X20, it appears to be the biggest X-ray flare on record. The particle effects of this giant flare on EIT is, however, an order of magnitude smaller than those seen during the so-called Bastille Day event of 14 July 2000.
On 04/11/03 an extraordinary X28+ solar flare and again on October 28, 2003,.
Oon June 7, 2011 NASA reported a potent blast from the Sun causing a firestorm of radiation on a level not seen since 2006. Flares such as this have the potential to disrupt satellite communications and power on Earth.
Nov 4, 2013 - The largest solar flare in recorded history erupted in Solar Cycle 23, ... Current solar cycle has so far produced 23 X-class solar flares
Oct 25, 2014 - A solar flare erupted from the largest sunspot on the sun in 24 years.
Mar 11, 2015 - The monster X-class solar flare, the strongest category of sun storms possible, was the largest flare the region has produced so far,
TOO MANY CHEMICALS, TOO MANY TOXINS, TOO MUCH RELIANCE ON POLLUTING FOSSIL FUELS, TOO MUCH METHANE, TOO MUCH CO2, TOO MUCH PESTICIDE USE, TOO MUCH RADIATION, TOO MUCH DROUGHT AND CROP FAILURE, TOO MUCH CONSTANT STRAIN ON OUR PLANET TO ALLOW THINGS TO GET BETTER.
DENIAL WON'T FIX IT, AND, HONESTLY, FEW SEE ANY WAY IT CAN BE FIXED, BUT WE CAN SLOW IT DOWN JUST A LITTLE, IF WE CHOOSE TO.
TOO FEW CHOOSE TO....
"SCIAMACHY onboard ENVISAT (launch 2002) was the first and is now with TANSO onboard GOSAT (launch 2009) one of only two satellite instruments currently in space whose measurements are sensitive to CO2 and CH4 concentration changes in the lowest atmospheric layers where the variability due to sources and sinks is largest.
The retrieved XCH4 results show that after years of stability, atmospheric methane has started to rise again in recent years which is consistent with surface measurements.
The largest increase is observed for the tropics and northern mid- and high-latitudes amounting to about 7.5±1.5 ppb yr−1 since 2007. Due care has been exercised to minimise the influence of detector degradation on the quantitative estimate of this anomaly."
