Protect Yourself and Loved Ones – Not a Drill.

(San Francisco) – What we know:

  1. The daily outflow of deadly radiation from Japan’s Four Chernobyl’d Reactors increased Ten Times on March 31.
  2. The Japanese Government in conjunction with GE and the American CIA cut off information the next day.
  3. Information has resumed and is “controlled”.
  4. The March 31st Radioactive Plume is expected in the States, the EU and Asia on April 11th and 12th. The Southern Hemisphere will get all this spread out over the next year.
  5. The Plume contains Radioactive Iodine, Strontium, Plutonium, Cesium and other highly lethal radioactive substances.
  6. Take all the precautions you can:

A. Stay indoors as much as you can, and especially when it rains. B.Get into the habit of checking your shoes and those of guests at the front door. Store umbrellas away from clothes C. Drink spring water from deep underground old sources. Try to make it local. D. Do not bathe or wash clothes/dishes in radioactively contaminated water. That is a bit of a problem. You can stock up on baby wipes. That should help some. In the Northeast US Poland Springs is good if a bit acid, so counteract with bicarb once a day – a tsp. in a glass of water. E. Food: This is a puzzle. Buy New Zealand beef from US Wellness Meats. In about a year’s time that will no longer be a good source, as the radiation will eventually cross the equator. Broad leafy greens are known to absorb radiation from rainwater. There was an idea that thicker skinned veggies would be the best but as it turns out, foods rich in minerals will pick up all the nasties as easily for they are heavy metals. Beware of coconuts, and avocados, both rich in potassium, and therefore good at picking up metals . All dairy products are no good. They have Strontium 90, which at the behest of the dairy industry, was made illegal to report the last time this happened. Take it on faith because the probe that will pick it up is attached to a isotope radiation detector that costs $10,000, and up, and there is a waiting list! However you might want to get one of the $600 dollar detectors and you can use it to measure Gamma rays on your food in the market while you are shopping. Gammas are easier to detect. That way you can buy more intelligently. There are waiting lists for those, too. Proceed as if everything changed on March 11, 2011.  It did.

  1. Will boiling water for any extended period of time help. I, also, need to know how can any of us take a shower or bath since the water is not safe for use. All helpful comments are welcomed.

  2. Toni, thanks, i think, for the link on radiation,
    am not sleepy now for some reason… 😉

    Bob, thanks for the article and also to VT,
    thanks for the comments secton,
    sometimes here at VT the comments section is where the gold is…

  3. milk is bad for adults in any case, radiated milk or not…
    it is the pasteurizing of milk that makes it a dead product
    but hey, keep drinking milk, it’s good for the economy 😉

  4. Actually, Dale, ‘radiation,’ per se, is not absorbed; rather radioactive particles that emit radiation is absorbed and this is a crucial difference.

  5. Hey Bob – In response to part of your last reply in this comment queue, notably-
    …”Right! What a Bonehead move! All so some TSA Director guy could get rich. Go figure! They are all criminals of the worst kind. Where are the District Attorneys when we need them?” –
    …forgive me, but I just couldn’t resist- http://www.realjewnews.com/?p=575

  6. Its time to dismantle General Electric-Westinghouse and put them out of business, jail the people that are and were responsible for this flawed design. Be sure to seize their Pensions. They deserve no bonus on dismissal. Make them totally responsible. Shareholders deserve nothing, make sure their shares are worthless and do not allow them to write-off the losses at tax time.

  7. It’s called Democide, though it hasn’t been codified by the U.N. yet its’ esearched here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democide

    It encompasses classes of actions by governments, organizations, industries, and individuals which contribute towards or cause effects upon populations of people that are JUST as horrible an experience for those people as Genocide would be – but missing a direct genocidal INTENT their actions, or failures to act don’t fit into the preambles and definitions of Genocide Laws.

    Democide is not so much an ‘act’ as it is an ‘event’ and it is illegal to be complicit to a Democidal “event” per se.

    You didn’t know there would be an accident granted, but you are Guilty of knowing what would would happen if THERE WAS an accident. This is complicity in Democide.

    The Nuclear Industry, the pundit politicians they control, the complicit beaurocrats, media who keep hush are guilty of “Complicity” in these ‘democidal events’ in every direction of every compass – because they are aware beyond shadows of doubt of the dangers to populations and life itself on earth from what they create, or fail to warn people about. That is Complicity! They are Guilty!

  8. OK, Ben so where are your friends. Another war is about to begin, Japan is in reckless shambles. “And nobody seems to care world wide!” The dollar is down and not going up anytime soon. The UN, IMF, BFIT, Central banks, The FED, etc… Are destroying everything thing for everybody because they will never come out of their holeks in the ground after it is all gone because their controllers will have made sure everything is amok and usless.

  9. My little sister died from throat cancer. My thyroid was ‘nuked’ by a Dr. who wouldn’t listen to reasonable dosage advice from its owner. The bottom-line is buy Nascent Iodine. Buy the 1 oz bottle at 2% concentration because it’s the best value. Dilute it greatly, like 2-drops to 2 Oz or more of clean water. Do this three times a day, and make your ENTIRE family do it too.

    Otherwise, you’re darned right to pray for divine intervention. I’m ready to watch the blastards crawling on their bellies among a like-minded pile of snakes.

  10. Mr. Niceguy says:

    “If this is how the world ends, I’m gonna be disappointed, the world ends largely with the population sitting on ass commenting on the Internet.. Oh… Um… Where’s my bowl?”

    Ahahaha! Thanks for the laugh! That was a good one… where’s my bowl? haha.
    Just had some green last weekend…

    I know everyone wants to take what they believe are ‘practical measures’, but the reality is that this is something that will have great repercussions for the entire globe and there’s little you can do to counteract it on the ‘practical level’. Seeing as I am a prayerful person, I just ask the Lord to bless my food and I treat my food with reverence and respect. Some may balk at that, but what do you have to lose trying it? But hey, you do whatever puts your mind at ease. As for me, I’m sticking to my mostly macrobiotic diet,and going out on my walks in the park 4-5 times a week.

    I am a person of faith and belief; I believe that awesome times are upon us… to live in the world we always dreamed of… but you have to be willing to give up all this worldly shit. Love is the only thing that matters; love is common denominator. It’s time we focus on the mystery of love.

  11. Terrible idea. If we send it into space, instead of letting it fall into some other atmosphere out there, we should just send it to the sun where these reactions are already taking place, and our amounts will have little bearing on the Sun whatsoever.

  12. The actual Director of our Social Security Fund and Administration is the Queen of England and from which she is paid a generous salary. Your Social Security Card is issued by the United Nations through the International Monetary Fund and your Social Security Number is actually your International Slave Number! On the reverse side of that card is an “E” letter followed by eight numbers. That is a “cusip” number, which is required on all securities! Yes! You have been converted into a marketable security, like stocks and bonds and your person was offered for sale and sold to domestic and foreign corporate governments and investors! http://www.stophepirates.blogspot.com

  13. Hi Pat, Good of you to write in!

    Check this out! See what you think about those fancy airport scanners. No, not the X-Ray scanners, the others! The so-called mm wave. You won’t believe this! The mm wave is exactly length of the Hydrogen Bonds in our bodies!

    Yea! It just “unzips” those things right and left. Hey, we are 70% water and 80% of the molecular bonds in our bodies are Hydrogen Bonds.

    Right! What a Bonehead move! All so some TSA Director guy could get rich. Go figure! They are all criminals of the worst kind. Where are the District Attorneys when we need them?

    Say, how do you give mice cancer on demand, anyway?

    Good to see you again.

    Bests,

    Bob

  14. Products containing or made with milk:

    Butter, Ice cream, cream, half and half, sour cream, yogurt, cheese, pudding plus countless processed foods made with milk.

    All out? Yikes!

  15. Hi Bob,

    Thank you for the apology. It’s quite humbling to be receiving that. Just wanted to let you know, as soon as I learned about the Japanese nuclear accident, I wrote to Pres. Obama stating succinctly that we (my family and I) do not want nuclear power in this country. It’s amazing to see him get on TV a few days later and state that there would be no change in the nuclear power industry. That man has no heart! Also, thank you for explaining what is going on with this “new” radiation that our bodies are not equipped to handle.

    This is all a learning curve for me and my family.
    I am a biologist and used to operate a cesium irradiator to treat tumors on mice years ago. I also worked briefly at NASA, using their neutron beam to irradiate tumors on mice as well as worked with radioisotopes in the lab. Neutrons emitted from the cyclotron went straight to the tumor without damaging nearby tissues. They were hoping to use it for treating cancer patients one day. This was all on the treatment side of cancer. But before handling radiation, we had to take a course on radiation safety. That is when I learned about the biological half life, and that our bodies process the radiation we ingest and much of it is removed from our bodies. It’s the radiation that remains that causes problems. Ionizing radiation bombards everything in its path, damaging tissues. I also learned that DNA has repair mechanisms that splice and dice away the mutations caused by radiation. Cancer is caused if there are too many mutations happening to the DNA at once and the cells are overwhelmed and aren’t able to repair them all. I used to grow cancer cells in the lab. Their nuclei that held the DNA were large and unsightly and they would grow into gigantic cells, outpacing their normal counterparts. What worries me, is that cancers will be sprouting up all over the place from this Japanese Nuclear accident. I’m trying to protect my family and at the same time tell this to everyone that I know – Nuclear power kills, sooner or later. But I’m getting glazed looks and blank stares. It’s quite perplexing.

    I am totally against nuclear energy/nuclear weapons, etc. It is insane to build these accident prone systems (especially in earthquake prone areas) that poison our air and water with radiation.

    I would like to see more people out there on the streets protesting. Where are the anti-nuclear activists? Why aren’t the people raving against nuclear? We are talking about survival here. This is not a kid’s game. This is survival. If we allow countries to continue building nuclear power plants and weapons, we will go down like Atlantis.

    One more thing, then I’ll get off the podium,…
    I think that the uranium and other radioactive materials mined from the ground were there for a reason. Humans and radiation do not mix. Is it possible that by unearthing it and bringing it up to our atmosphere, that we are on the path of destroying our civilization?

  16. Good Lord!! When I read a most respected blog article, such as Veteranstoday, I truly give credence to what is being said for all of us.

    I have 200 gal. of water & a yrs. supply of canned food. I suggest others to buy more canned food.

    Excellent article!! Thanks

  17. What Radiation Is Hitting North America
    When you hear the news or some Nuclear or Health Official telling you that “only extremely low levels of radiation have been detected and therefore there is no need to be concerned, there is no health threat to the American public.”

    Do not be comforted by this false sense of security. The first part of the statement is true, but the remainder is false.

    It’s not the loud noise that break glass molecules, it’s the frequency.
    It’s not the strong microwave levels that cause cellular damage, it’s the frequency
    It’s not the strong wireless signal that causes cellular damage, it’s the vibrational frequency.
    It’s not just high levels of radiation that cause damage, extreme low levels of radiation do too.

    These extreme low levels of biologically significant radiation hit North America Mid March 2011.

    North American Radiation
    * Cesium 137 accumulates in fatty tissues, liver, spleen and muscles
    * Iodide-131 accumulates in Thyroid, breast and ovaries
    * Strontium-90 concentrates in your bones and liver
    * Barium-140 causes bone tumors up to 30 years later
    * Tellurium-132 causes cell mutations, repeatedly via replication
    * Yttrium-0 damage to liver and respiration
    * Plutonium-244 concentrates in your liver
    * Uranium 235 accumulates in your bones and liver

    In 1972 Dr Abram Petkau discovered that low levels of radiation, over a longer period of time, were more damaging than higher doses over a short period of time.

    Once you ingest or inhale even very low levels of radioactive particles the Petkau Effect immediately starts potentially lethal tissue ionization.

    The phenomenon of the Petkau Effect basically means that you are ionizing or irradiating yourself continuously from the inside out. This insidious burning at your molecular level will impair your body long before there is a diagnosable disease.

    There is much that you can do to protect yourself, your family, animals & soil.

  18. A month and more into this thing and no traction whatsoever for the message bout how Fukushima has put us all under potential threat of death. Must be frustrating and disheartening both, to know you have the facts and the truth on your side and no vehicle that can deliver them to the target audience. We need to fix that.

    I say we cause I’d like to think that’s your motive in suggesting a debate – a recognition that no one man can make this message grow the wings it needs – and a call on the help of all capable of contributing to working the message into a form assimilable to the minds of those it needs reach…which is anybody still capable of wrapping their brain around the fact we face an enormous degradation of our planetary living space -and that it’s gonna get a lot worse before it gets any better. Forget about ‘global warming’…Fukushima is the catastrophe we thought would never happen.

    While I’m not shy to voice my skepticism of VT being still an authentic point of resistance against the hegemonist power, neither doI cease to suppose that there are people of good faith and intelligence here..this blend of cynical realism and naive optimism is my formula for stayin alive in an insane world; viewing our collective reality from that lense allows me to suppose it possible to ‘beta test’ the Bob Nichols message here livetime with the cooperation of same said people I am imagining still come here for a dose of truth. Man, what a thing it would be to see VT come back into harmony with the hard won credibility so lately thrown away. If there’s any one thing that should and could mobilize us to rise above the petty bullshit, this article and the message it conveys is it. Pure self preservation would dictate the truth of that.

    That message is bigger than any one person, any group of people, or medium of distribution…and I fully suspect that it’s uptake and absorption can act as an antidote to the the many poison pill sideshows which have diverted the attentions of well meaning folks who have failed to realize that debates over airplanes, towers, ‘democracy revolutions’ or political ideologies will have little relevance in a world of dead and dying people. I’ll say it one more time…Fukushima is the catastrophe we thought would never happen. Pandora’s out of the box.

    That said, I do not share the perspective that a) it’s over…too late…sayanara human race; b) that there is nothing in our collective human bag of tricks that won’t rise to the occasion of saving us from our all too human predeliction towards evil and perdition; c)our capacity to adapt and survive is limited to our fragile concept of who we are and why we are here…iow…we may just be actors in a bigger play than what we can even imagine to be taking place. Not quite willing to rule out the mystery of “grace” no matter how agnostic a place this world has become.

    Hour ago the sheep were moved inside. No more grazing till my AN/PDR-63 arrives and I can monitor conditions ‘in the field.’ Ordered that the day after I read this article. Thanks Bob. Five months ago I started playing around with an indoor hydroponic system for growing my livestock feed. System is almost up and ready. 25 acres worth of feed in 300 sq feet of space. Did I have a clue that nuclear destruction would break out over the northern hemisphere back then? None. Can’t help hearing it run around in my head…”God will provide”…all over the globe folks are right now coming up with ways of surviving, making do, making things work, in this worst case scenario. Bob, faith and fortitude are as hardwired into our DNA as any more “scienticically measureable” phenomena. Up to us to access em. They’ve carried our ancestors through some heavy weather. This ain’t the first time the hegemonists have pulled out all the stops to take us all down.

    I DO believe that this most important message the truthteller relays here is up against some forces whose capacity for evil and mischief is leading us closer to self destruction daily. That they wish his message suppressed, that they wish harm upon the large majority of the human race, that there is no level of obscenity or violence to which they will not descend in order to rob us of our lives and liberties. Just my opinion. But I think it important to know what we are up against here. And ask whether Fukushima was really “an accident.”

    Bottom line, I simply believe us possessed of an innate capacity to rise higher than our own imposed and/or self-imposed limitations when the stakes are high enough that all that we love and hold dear is threatened seriously enough. That for now our fate remains in our own hands, and the article itself and your subsequent commentary comes off both too absolutist(in the sense of feigning total knowledge of our human capacities) and too defeatist. I offer that critique only because the message is too important to not be given our total attention and constructive engagement. And I respect your willingness to take a step back from the rhetoric. This article needs be reprised on VT, with the opportunity for the required input given full weight…articles here tend to lose legs fast after a day or so, people just move on to the next day’s news…THIS news is not goin away anytime soon, whether the MSM gives it short shrift or not. This SHOULD be VT’s springboard to the big leagues…we’ll see if they deserve it.

    Your message is bigger than any one person, any group of people, or medium of distribution…and I fully suspect that it’s uptake and absorption can act as an antidote to the the many poison pill sideshows which have diverted the attentions of well meaning folks who have failed to realize that debates over airplanes, towers, ‘democracy revolutions’ or political ideologies will have little relevance in a world of dead and dying people. Probably why it’s being so heavily suppressed. It’s a lonely and thankless task you’ve taken upon yourself Mr. Bob Nichols…but I predict you’ll find yourself to be neither if you stay the course.

  19. Bob Nichols, many thanks for informing-educating us common ignorant mortals about the lethal dangers of radiation poisoning.

    You are absolutely right in your assumptions and more so in spreading the word and sharing your knowledge-preoccupations with us:

    1) Atomic reactors and man made fission materials, (like GMO) are products of technologies, humans can’t control and might lead to the extinction of every form of life in planet earth, as we know it,

    2) There is no safe threshold or unharmful amount for radiation: ONE RAD IS ENOUGH and TOO MANY,

    3) There is NO WAY fauna, including humans, or flora can adapt to or process radiation,

    4) The effect of DU is out there to be seen on the Iraqi population and the US-GB soldiers who participated in the invasion of Iraq, documented by serious scientific studies (among them: alarming increase in cancer, genetic mutations and malformed newborn babies),

    It is our DUTY as citizens to protest and demand the lay down of Atomic energy and a total denuclerization of planet earth. Alternative-safe sources of energy exist.

    We have to stop the greed of the industry (GE and AREVA are the most aggressive in selling Atomic Power Plants) and protest like the Germans did. They stopped a train full of radioactive waste material from reaching its destination in Germany (the main stream media did not cover the event…)

    Here is the URL of an article I stumbled upon yesterday, as a complement to your excellent analysis:

    http://www.sott.net/articles/show/227254–There-is-no-safe-dose-of-radiation-#comments

  20. I hear ya, Chumly.

    Pardon me, I was a bit quick on the trigger. For that I apologize.

    Let’s discuss.

    Have a good day, Chumly,

    Bob Nichols

  21. Ha! good comment, Burkey!

    Yea! The most complicated and most expensive way in the world to just plain ole boil water!

    Very good!

    Bob

  22. Pardon me, Pat, if I offended you.

    Let’s discuss your repair DNA point.

    I maintain that our bodies did not evolve to repair or even fight this radioactive poison. Pat, these radioactive metals and aerosols have never existed before and “never” is not an idle word.

    Our bodies did evolve to process the rare, very rare, 2 parts in a million, natural uranium found in the Earth.

    But Cesium 137, Strontium 90 in womens’ breast milk or tiny nanometer length particles of Depleted Uranium. No way, Pat. These radioactive isotopes and elements are lethal to us and have never existed before.

    Moreover, their very size is a new Property. These tiny ceramicized, non-soluble radioactive particles get inside our very cells and bind with the cells’ DNA, wrecking havoc.

    It took us billions of years to evolve the ability to process the tiny amounts of natural uranium in the ground.

    We don’t stand a chance of evolving an evolutionary defense in 66 years, Pat, not gonna happen, it has only been not quite 3 generations.

    Let’s discuss, I’d be happy to.

    Bob

  23. The off the cuff belligerence that serves as repartee here for quite the majority of VT ‘staff writers’ only took hold in the last few months…I’m sure I’m not the only one to notice the downward spiral…in fact, I only came back cause of seeing the Bob Nichols article and consider anything by same as ‘must read’…but I don’t think I must needs read that kind of smarmy arrogant put down from anybody – that it should come from someone to whom I granted deep respect is yet another indication that there must be something that ‘gets into the water’ of anybody associated with what used to be but ceased to be the one shining light in a swamp of disinfo.

    Trashing all who dissent or diverge from one’s opinions with smarmy put downs about being zionist shills, pro-nukers, right wing stooge etc etc ad nauseaum has become the trademark of VT’s thin skinned writer crew…don’t see many of the names of the folks I remember used to come here everyday like me…suspect that my disenchantment is not isolated. Hey Bob, grow up and get with it, your stuff is too important to be reduced to cheap hectoring and insult!

  24. Bob,

    You misunderstood my note about the threshold.
    By the way, I am not a pro-nuker.
    And why are you and the others not out on the streets protesting against nuclear?

  25. You do have a point ….considering nuke plants are just fancy steam-generators….
    Maybe I won’t go join a tribe of bushmen just yet.

  26. Hi Pat,

    That threshold is just another lie cooked up by a nervous DOE and the rich pro-nuker bond holders to keep you bamboozled long to get a good amount of work out of you before you get shuffled off.

    The lowest possible radiation “threshold” is one radiation through one cell and ever you know in that propaganda addled brain of yours that it can give you a killer cancer or related disease.

    Our cell’s repair mechanisms did not evolve to fix something just loosed on the world a mere 6 decades plus 6 years ago.

    Wake up out of your pro-nuker money induced trance, look around, take stock and get with it.

    Bob

  27. Hold on Guys!

    Just a minute before you start getting all prehistoric on us. Ha! Have I got a surprise for you.

    The big professional psychopathic liars working for the nuker utilities or just dumb ole Tex-i-can boys like Dale Suiter, who camps out here from time to time, have put a mind warp on your rightful thinking.

    Energy is flat out everywhere, Guys. Everywhere! It comes pouring in from the Sun everyday – more than we could use in a year! Ha! hairdryers and everything!

    So, let’s get our heads screwed on right, kick some ass and take names of the pro-nuker evil doers and take care of biz-ness.

    Bob

  28. He means the radio stations that subscribe to our service. I don’t know how he can speak for all of them, especially when it’s generally up to news anchors to select the stories they write. Some are big stations, some are small. He says most are “conservative.” I don’t know what that has to do with this issue at all. It’s a health issue, not political in my view. In fact I would think “conservative” stations who love to bash the government would be pleased to hear the EPA is sitting on data.

    This was just one conversation I had with him about this, two days ago. I guess he wants to know where my info comes from. I gave him my file which is full of numerous stories on whoever’s been speaking about this publicly–Arnie Gundersen is one–Forbes’ McMahon has blogged some interesting information, there is a great story published today detaiing the difference between the FDA’s and the EPA’s limits for radiation “safety” levels.

    He says he hasn’t had time to look at my file. Which is fine–I’m not anxious to get into it again. The radiation isn’t going anywhere anyway. 😉 I will still write some stories, but I don’t expect them to be accepted for national distribution. Maybe an anchor or two will read them here in Southern California.

    I was trying to tell him that controversial news of all types is rationed/blacked out by cable channels, but I don’t think he heard me. I know he watches them and he knows I know and it probably ticked him off that I said that.

    It’s a conversation I’m not sure how to have. There is a mindset out there that if you get information from the Internet, you’re just getting it from some guy sitting there in his living room in his shorts with maybe a bottle of Jack Daniels in one hand.

    But, as far as the EPA goes, you can get the info right off their website where they have the RadNet monitoring system up. Anyone can go and see that they are not publishing current measurements. What is weird to me is that there isn’t a peep about the EPA’s delays in any kind of mainstream media outlet. Me, I think it’s a story people would be interested to hear.

  29. Hello,
    Thank you Bob for all the information you have share here.

    I just wanted to share what we’ve been doing since we learned about the Japanese earthquake and nuclear power plant radiation emissions.

    1) We have reverse osmosis water, five stage (WATTs Premier). It’s supposed to remove radium. Also, the filter does trap radiation. So we need to change filters often. I’ve tested it with radiation detector and haven’t seen any high numbers.

    2) We’ve been testing indoor/outdoors twice daily with our radiation detector and we noticed when it rains, the radiation does go up 30% (from 30 cpm to 40 cpm). We also randomly test water, food, ourselves, etc.

    3)We’ve stockpiled canned milk, canned vegetables, dry milk, etc. because these were processed before the accident.
    Aiming for up to three years worth and hoping by then, that things will have settled a bit…

    4) We’re buying aged cheese that’s at least several months old to two years old and stockpiling that. It was already processed a long time ago.

    5) We don’t go outside when it rains.

    6) Sprinkling kelp in our food (Maine Coast) that is green but is like salt, as well as iodine tincture daily on our skin.

    7) We know that our bodies have mechanisms to repair the damaged DNA caused by the radiation, but I learned recently in a book that I was reading, that the body does not switch on this repair mechanism if the radiation is too low. It’s as if there is a threshold. I wonder if anyone else has heard of this before. I worked in the radiation biology field for 10 years (cancer research) and know that our bodies are pretty resilient. We need to fortify them as if we already have cancer and try to stay out of radiation’s path.

  30. That is Cold.

    Thanks for writing in. If possible, please respond to two questions that come immediately to mind.

    1) “our clients don’t want to know these things” – What clients and how does he know?

    2) “where are you getting this information.” Who wants to know that – just him or others?

    Bob

  31. RWB,

    I stand by what I said. Period.

    Go down the page and read the question by Windy.

    It is: “Is the strontium 90 only accumulated in cows milk? what about human breastmilk?”

    Bob

  32. Carl, some of your comments here are kinda strange, (maybe bc I don’t know you);)
    but I agree with this one fully.

    For millions of years man has lived long and productive lives without electricity, depending on culture and life expectancy variations of course.

    I can totally envision a world where electricity is used only in hospitals or for needs that directly benefit mankind. I know it’s a fantasy, though.
    I did go without electric 20 years ago when I first graduated from college. For three months in the heat of summer in Waco, Texas I had no electric and used candles and oil lamps at night, ate takeout, or went to friends’ houses, and it was fine!
    It was actually kind of cool.

    The cost of being able to blow-dry hair and nuke food seems to be so high, so incredibly high, especially now, that I wonder that mankind is not enslaved to the machine rather than the other way around.

  33. I work for a wire service that has national coverage and send stories to over a thousand stations. A few days ago I wrote two stories: one about how the EPA is not releasing current information on radiation readings (If you go to their site you will see there is a two and sometimes three week delay).
    I also wrote up a headline about Greg Palast’s article in Truth-Out.org on how Obama asked Congress for a four billion guarantee a few months ago for Tepco to build two nuke plants in Texas.

    The national desk rejected both stories and a conversation with my boss revealed that “our clients don’t want to know these things” and “where are you getting this information.” He acted as if I’m some kind of wacko and implied my sources are suspect (and my judgement as well, as far as I’m concerned). I actually liked him before this conversation.

    I think it’s a story that the EPA is sitting on that data. Plus, they’re not measuring Uranium, Strontium, Plutonium…aren’t those relevant?

    As broadcasters, you the people own the airwaves, not these stations. Their charter demands that they operate in the public good. Does the public need to know the EPA is sitting on data?

  34. Hi Stanley Coxmyth,

    Hmm, total myth and Fantasy Thinking again, Stanley.

    It gets you exactly nowhere, dude. All you and Dale Suiter are doing is covering for Criminals, Why are you doing that?

    Getting paid? Maybe you are just a brick short of a full load?

    Read Wendy’s question on down the page and the straight answer.
    “is the strontium 90 only accumulated in cows milk? what about human breastmilk?”

    Bob

  35. No. Not at all.

    Even if you could remove all the radioactive particles, metals, and aerosols; there is no way to remove the really nasty stuff radioactive Hydrogen, also called H3 and Tritium.

    Worse, we are 70% water and 80% of the molecular bonds in our bodies are with hydrogen. The radioactive water with the radioactive Hydrogen doesn’t just go through our skin; nooooo, the radioactive water becomes part of us.

    This is nasty, nasty stuff.

    Bob

  36. Good question, Windy. The short answer is “Yes, radioactive Strontium 90 is in human breast milk, too.” Humans are no different than any other mammal with breasts to feed young.

    Let’s go to the medical literature for an analysis. The Canadian Medical Association is first up, here: “Strontium-89 and Strontium-90 Levels in Breast Milk and in Mineral-Supplement Preparations.” There are many similar articles from all over the world. http://tinyurl.com/446rgqv

    I could make a speech about it; but, I won’t. I suspect you may have personal reasons for asking, or just intellectual curiosity. Whichever, it might be a tragic moment for you, I know it is for women reading this and the men, or women, who love them all over the world.

    Sorry I don’t have an answer other than the truth. Write me at [email protected] for further information.

    Bob

  37. you a funny bloke smithersNZ,but your right,NZ has always been nuke free and theres plenty of room for a few more japanese.enjoy your meal

  38. You have about a year before the radiation we are now experiencing in the northern hemisphere reaches over the equator and makes its way to the beautiful beaches of Cape Town. When that happens life as you enjoy it will be changed forever. Outside barbecues, surfing and enjoying the beach will become extremely dangerous. Your food and water supply will be tainted.

    As you yourself have mentioned people will begin to die, or perhaps never be born. The old and the young will go first, with the infirm. Animals around you too, will suffer and die. The poor, who have little access to remedies will soon be overcome.

    The recommendations that we can make for you are no different from the ones we are now making for ourselves. You have a year to prepare but somehow there is no adequate duration for a situation such as this.

    You will have to think about your water, food, shelter. Those among us who can have purchased radiation detectors, and we are now in the habit of monitoring our indoor air, avoiding all with the mildest weather by staying indoors, and taking our monitors with us to the grocery store in hopes of finding untainted food. We are already drinking spring water from underground sources, that is, those of us who can afford such luxury.

    View full flowers you see in the field; but, they may be dangerous to touch. The porcupine quills may become lethal as well. In fact all across nature there will be danger you have never known. What to do? Necessity will mean that you must shelter indoors in a beautiful outdoor climate.

    The baboons on Table Mountain will die. What will become of the AIDS orphans who run in the streets and sleep under parked cars? The street crime will get even worse. Perhaps it would be better to find a safe place to live.

    This has been taken from you already. You will have to study all you can, continually inform yourself of developments, and do everything you can to provide for your own well-being. We have given you some ideas but a lot will be up to you. We can point out that there are few places where well-meaning people will give you the kind of information that is true and to the possibility, helpful.

    I wish you the best. Get yourself a radiation monitor and learn to use it in this coming year. Find unpolluted sources of water as we have outlined food.

    Ask yourself if the intention of South Africans to make it self part of the nuclear world is an intention which you can honor. May there be some way that you can influence this destiny. May you all find a way to use your abundant sunlight and wind to your advantage and live the time you have left in whatever peace and harmony you can find with nature.

    Bests,

    Bob Nichols

  39. Way Cool, Garibaldi,

    Dig this Guys and Gals:
    Martha Reeves and the Vandellas- Nowhere to Run

    What a Hoot! No Shit! Dude!

    Well said!

  40. Instant Karma’s gunna get you…gunna knock you off your feet…
    Thanx for your most considerate reply.

  41. America always did think big 😉

    Here in EU we’ve standardised on Bq & Sieverts and no-one’s any wiser…

    If you want to watch UK data from a vocational source try here:- weatherprobe.com

    Anyone planning on arresting the guys who financed the Georgia Guidestones?

  42. Like many of your comments and snide remarks, this series of ad mominem attacking comments are also untrue and slanderous. I don’t now live anywhere close to Washington State. I am a natural-born Texan, which is also my current domicile. I was raised in the Bible Belt, and proud of it. I love this country, but not everyone in this country. I would not mislead any child or adult, to put it bluntly, and deeply resent your comments to insinuate this. (See Matthew 15:14, 18:6; Luke 6:39, 1 Timothy 6:20)

    I also have a degree of common sense and personal responsibility. I raised 3 children and have 5 grandchildren, and would never lead any of them astray, unlike high minded thinkers as yourself who place more importance on self-righteousness and reputation than the truth. I research and continue monitoring radiation contaminants in our air, precipitation, drinking water, milk and other sources relative to the different isotopes you mentioned. I also follow the reports from at least 3 credible sources which are actively monitoring the passive radiation we are getting across the U.S.and will tell you blunty, much of the information being parroted by you and your ilk are simply inaccurate if not outright lies.

    Want to try me on the HAARP theory? Go ahead, make my day. I have checked it out from an engineering standpoint, which I happen to have directly related experience, and that theory is totally bogus also. Radiation poisoning is a real problem, but lies and rumors can be deadly.

    Nice of you to show your true colors. If I loved liars and hypocrites, I would probably send bouqets of organically grown roses.

    RWB

  43. Dr Reita,

    Thank you for your comment, I appreciate your contribution. You’ve obviously done some work on these subjects and that is to be respected. There are so few people who can tick off health effects of 8 isotopes, you are certainly rare and to be congratulated.

    I encourage you to read some of the papers and articles about transport of energetic materials about the planet. Sadly, weaponized ceramic uranium oxide from the Central Asian War has been detected on Antarctic Glaciers.

    Have a good day,

    Bob

  44. When you hear the news or some Nuclear or Health Official telling you that “only extremely low levels of radiation have been detected and therefore there is no need to be concerned, there is no health threat to the American public.”

    Do not be comforted by this false sense of security. The first part of the statement is true, but the remainder is false.

    It’s not the loud noise that break glass molecules, it’s the frequency.
    It’s not the strong microwave levels that cause cellular damage, it’s the frequency
    It’s not the strong wireless signal that causes cellular damage, it’s the vibrational frequency.
    It’s not just high levels of radition that cause damage, extreme low levels of ratiation do too.

    These extreme low levels of biologically significant radiation hit North America Mid March 2011.

    * Cesium 137 accumulates in fatty tissues, liver, spleen and muscles
    * Iodide-131 accumulates in Thyroid, breast and ovaries
    * Strontium-90 concentrates in your bones and liver
    * Barium-140 causes bone tumors up to 30 years later
    * Tellurium-132 causes cell mutations, repeatedly via replication
    * Yttrium-0 damage to liver and respiration
    * Plutonium-244 concentrates in your liver
    * Uranium 235 accumulates in your bones and liver

    In 1972 Dr Abram Petkau discovered that low levels of radiation, over a longer period of time, were more damaging than higher doses over a short period of time.

    Once you ingest or inhale even very low levels of radioactive particles the Petkau Effect immediately starts potentially lethal tissue ionization.

    The phenomenon of the Petkau Effect basically means that you are ionizing or irradiating yourself continuously from the inside out. This insidious burning at your molecular level will impair your body long before there is a diagnosable disease.

    Jet streams do not mix between Southern & Northern hemispheres.

    There is much that can be done to detox, protect & support your immune system, which is your own defense.

  45. Hi there Denialator, Nice of you to drop by,

    Hey guys, look at this creature. Denialator is up in Washington State, here is his/her Email address [email protected] that is because his blog is here: http://denialator.blogspot.com/

    You are spouting exactly the kind of stuff that the Criminal defenders and professional (paid) apologist of nuke plants do. Telling kids and their parents to drink up milk loaded with Strontium 90 is sick beyond belief, in fact, it is downright Criminal.

    Strontium 90 is a horrible radioactive poison made in these nuke faileres and leaked everyday all over the world, now comes these four Chernobyl’d reactors spewing their self made Strontium poison over the kids, grass and cows.

    That is really gross, Denialator, lying to kids and their parents with a straight face. Really sick…..

    Bob

  46. Go out and dance, tis what happened last time.

    can’t help wondering what a cunning plan this all was baldric!

  47. Thank you for your article on radiation hazards and protective strategies. I think when you put out that kind of information it is important to list at least some of the sources. Can you please add a few of the science sources for your conclusions?

    thanks.

  48. We people of this planet are truly the sorry ones, because we tolerate this BS. We could have homes without the need of the grid. With fire places and can everything. The modern world is going to destroy us.

  49. You want to really wreck things. Nuclear plants are lightly guarded. With a few more meltdown and we can be sure nuke power is done. If four nuke plants were hit in the USA the New World order would be screwed, because the whole country would be done, so there FEMA camps would be of no use.
    This stuff might combine with the chemtrail crap they put out and this stuff might bind in your lungs and you are done. Who knows?

  50. Let me see wars, nuclear fusion, porn, Communism, feminism, and sex education. Let me see I believe these are all Jewish creations. Those bastards are going to ruin the earth. What difference does it make if they completely destroy the Planet and we are gone and a bunch of Jews running around. They don’t think about the future of this planet.
    But so many of you cry when someone hurts the poor Jews after they cry anti-semitism. In the 60’s so many people were sick and tired of the BS that they picked up the swastika flags and marched with Lincoln Rockwell.

  51. Have faith in mutations for survival of every species! Nuke Radiation has been all around the world for decades (well, of course, except for New Zealand; wait, what about all those open-air tests in the south Pacific, O nevermind) from 2000+ atmospheric atomic tests by the Big 4 as far back as the 50s and 60s, to nuclear waste from military production of weapons that was dumped into the Mississippi for decades to “dilute it” while it settled out downstream like placer gold deposits. But Life goes on, even if future gnarled generations of sub-humans won’t be as pleasing to gaze upon as we think we are.

  52. While I sincerely appreciate your articles and input to clarify the various aspects of nuclear power generation and its related hazards, the realities of this global catastrophe, etc., I have to take exception to your comments on eliminating dairy products from human consumption because it’s now hazardous to your health. This is absurd.

    If we are to assume that nuclear radiation and fallout of radiactive particles are only going to attack such life sustaining substances as milk, cheese and other derivatives of dairy products, we are delusional and have missed the whole concept of rational thinking. The cows, or goats, which produce these commodities either ate or consummed, absorbed or otherwise imbibed the radioactive materials from the environment, just like everyone else. Stopping the use of dairy products is no solution at all, and will not make us safer.

    If we stop drinking milk, what’s next? Stop eating, breathing or going outside? C’mon! How long do you think civilization would last following such ridiculous suggestions? Vegans are perfectly within their rights to their own dietary choices, but they obviously have no grasp on reality. The vast majority of human beings have enjoyed healthy lifestyles on a full spectrum of meats and dairy products since the beginning of time and biological life existed on this planet. These salient facts are not going to change to facilitate such expediencies of denial.

    Just stick to the facts, please. Just the facts.

    Keep up the good work.

    Cordially,

    RWB

  53. Those of us who are a bit older-60s, 70s or better-are probably lucky. Even if we do get cancers from Fukushima they may well not be the proximate cause of death. Much as almost all men die with prostate cancer though statistically speaking few die from prostate cancer. But our children and grandchildren will not be so lucky. Doesn’t it seem somehow strange that future generations will be using radiation therapy to kill cancers caused by radiation.

    I have believed for years that at some point, probably in the fairly near future, a nation-state would launch bio-war to euthanize a large portion of the world’s population. Bio-warfare can be far more effective than a neutron bomb. But now mankind has through hubris and greed loosed what is effectively, though not actually, a massive neutron bomb on the world. Of those not killed by cancers quite probably a very large portion of the survivors will be sterile or worse are so appalled by the birth defects generated by radiation that they will refuse to reproduce.

  54. Bob,

    I recently saw a documentary on Chernobyl. To say that it was heartbreaking would be an understatement. Although many adults and children who were alive when the incident happened died, it is the unborn generations since that have suffered the most through DNA damage to their parents who survived. The photos of many of the children who were born long after the incident were nightmarish. The documentary concluded that eventually there will be no decendents from Chernobyl as the nuclear incident will kill them all.

  55. Hi Bob. Thanks for keeping us informed. Can you provide me with information as to what I should expect down Africa way – Cape Town, to be exact, regarding ill effects of the nuclear meltdown in Japan (airborne/waterborne contamination,etc)? All the best. Patrick

    P.S. The article, via the link below, titled “Sayonara, Japan: Is the capitalist game over now.”, adds additional context and substance to Bob’s expose of the “Japan situation.” http://www.trinicenter.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=2302

  56. TJ, allow me a slight rewrite-
    “…by the time Harry drop the bomb Truman was President… and signed off on the creation of the Zionist entity while still in his pajamas, enter Oppenheimer. It was already a done deal and all downhill from there…through this disastrous fluke of history, made in newfounded “Israel”, contra naturam, so was the horror of Hiroshima fostered and finally came to pass.

  57. Bob Nichols:

    Wrong. Point is dilution of contaminants is “a” method of coping with contamination once an incident occurs. Weathering breaks down contamination. Of course it does not solve original issues that created the contamination.

    A “safe” energy producing plant using nuclear fuel is not possible. Nuclear operated energy plants may be well operated, constructed with all the safeguards in place, but they can never be “safe”. The nuclear fuel used in them is the proverbial time bomb.

    Regards

    Dale R. Suiter

  58. Correct. Once people aborb radiation – its in them and is not leaving. Contamination become accumalative.

    Regards

    Dale R. Suiter

  59. Well New Zealand Beef and Lamb – and also the Milk – is fine. The radiation has not crossed the equator, and and the prospects of it coming -45 South are virtually ZERO.

    We will be eating nice nuclear free leafy lush greens and clean food, whilst the rest of you are protected by your ‘nuclear umbrella’.
    Sort of Ironic given the US carried out 25 years of political and economic warfare against NZ for being antinuclear.
    Just as well you didn’t sign that free trade deal, market rates for you!

    Well, Bon Apepite~!

  60. It sure feels like the big one. The military industrial complex in conjunction with the state of the art bunkers in the hands of the oligarch’s finally hit pay dirt with the planned obsolesce from nuclear power. Their wishes and plans for mass murder to reduce population and guarantee their heredity life extension technology and a trip to the stars is in play.

    It’s time for the Rockefeller watch. It’s 12:18 Bejing time, do you know where the Rockefellers are? Rumor has it they are having a party in their bunker in India.

  61. Howdy
    Thanks for your advice/information.

    Is it possible to remove any or all the isotopes in water through filtration and or distillation?

    thanks

  62. John,

    Yea, the Koreans, Chinese and Russians. They are most certainly talking and furious. It is just “disappeared,” in our usual government and biz-ness controlled “news” outlets. Those countries have no reason to be in the GE share price protection racket. My opinion.

    All the reactors are producing plutonium, that is their Job One. Reactor No 3 started off the last re-loading at Prez Obama’s request with an “extra” 20,100 lbs of nuke weapons grade 94.6% pure Pu239. It was down blended and mixed with U238 at 7%.

    But, no one in the world can exactly predict the Pu239 “Burnup” or heat produced. It is generally known that Pu239 “burns” hotter than the more stable U235. It is enough of a higher temp that the rods expand and warp making Boron Control Rod insertion impossible.

    That sure as hell makes for a bad hair day, to say the least and results in meltdown emergency situation all by itself. Another loop to the puzzle.

    20,100 pounds is not much in a 174 ton reactor core; but, Pu239 is the most poisonous stuff in the universe. We are all subject to breathing it right now from a “favor” to Prez Obama.

    But only after it was kicked out of three American reactors by Duke Energy Prez and a courageous nuke operator after almost taking out South Carolina.

    Knowledgeable and responsible experts I talked to say say that it probably has the “Kill” effect of 4 to 5 standard 174 ton 6% U235 based reactor cores.

    Well, the 50% Kill rates from a lot of isotopes were determined by Livermore Nuke Lab early in the 60s in experiments at the Naval Research Building at Hunters Point Naval Base on San Francisco Bay. So, the animals are just dead meat to dispose of.

    But, the cost of research animals being what it is these days, the accountants at the Lab will probably send a team over to remove their assholes and eyeballs for return to the Lab.

    Those are the most and least well oxygenated parts of about all animals, so it provides a good record of radioactive contamination. Other than that, they are useless.

    Good of you to drop by,

    Bob

  63. Hello Bob.

    I am not sure what aspect of my comment or articles you find objectionable. The fate of the Japanese people may have been decided by a few but now we citizens have to mobilize to politicize the need for a coordinated international responses. Millions can still be evacuated but we need to make our priorities clear that right now that saving lives in Japan is the premier imperative for the moment. We need to help those who still have a will to run for their lives.

    I appreciate your kind words. I don’t see any evidence, however, you have given a careful reading to my lengthy, “From Hiroshima to Fukushima, 1945-2011.” I got it out on March 28th. It gives vital history I dug out quite quickly. Why am I a day late and a dollar short? What about the content of “Racism, Cover-Up and Corporate Fraud in the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster.” It raises issues you don’t, even as you point the discussion towards a very different topics than I do. Let’s think how we can coordinate our analytical and political efforts. Apportion research duties etc.

    Please don’t just write off all the lives of the Japanese, starting with those on Honshu Island.

    How do we organize on this issue?

  64. Forgot to mention the societal rejects at TSA and of course the parasitical money whores at the Federal Reserve and IMF.

  65. I have not seen any feedback from the Koreas, China nor Russia…..the plumes must be there by now.

    No one is talking Plutonium lately. One reactor at Fukishima had the combo but all the other five were MAKING Plutonium as a process of producing heat. What are the predictable results of Plutonium releases from these reactors? Will the plumes travel in essentially the same patterns? What is now the life expectancy of the dogs roaming the streets of Fukushima? What can we learn from their certain demise?

    Bests,
    John

  66. My BIG concern:
    This now gives the psychopathic Military Industrial Complex “leaders” Carte Blanche to use Micro-Nukes anywhere in the world they want and simply blame it on those “damn Japanese”………… You know, the people who constantly strive to bring the world clean, natural, and FREE alternative energy! Yes, they have some cultural problems with telling the truth, but look at Obama-nation (if you can stand to). Also, with CORPORATIONS like TEPCO, BP, MONSANTO, DOW CHEMICAL, ELI LILLY, HALLIBURTON, BLACKWATER/XE, ETC., ETC., ad nauseam running our so-called “governments”, how in the hell are we going to know who to believe? Simple – any “official story” is bullshit, and anyone who disagrees is simply un-patriotic and should be immediately escorted to ROOM #101 for “re-education”.

  67. We have the potential for much more mayhem to come.

    http://dublinmick.wordpress.com/2011/04/11/could-great-lakes-really-empty-into-mississippi-as-cayce-predicts/

    Quake center near engineering marvel, the 8th wonder of the world

    Not only could the Great Lakes Flow down the Mississippi River, it is almost inevitable. There is a small sandstone ridge separating the the Chicago River from Lake Michigan. It is about 4.3 miles wide and about 12 feet high. Nothing the New Madrid could not handle in short order. There is more much more. The Chicago river flows from Lake Michigan through downtown Chicago and is some 156 miles long.

    It is an old story, man’s attempts to control nature. In 1900 the flow of the river was reversed to “keep Lake Michigan clean.” It once flowed into Lake Michigan but as Chicago grew and the river filled with sewage, the flow was reversed. They kept digging the canal deeper as man keeps digging his own grave deeper. A series of canal locks began. Makes sense huh, digging a canal deeper that stands between Lake Michigan and the Mississippi River?

    You see in 1840 James Allen cut himself a channel through the sand bar to IMPROVE SHIPPING! Shipping may improve to the point someday that boats can go from Illinois to the Gulf in 24 hours.

    Recently, researchers at the University of Illinois created a three-dimensional, hydrodynamic simulation of the Chicago River, which suggested that density curves are the cause of an observed bi-directional wintertime flow in the river. (That is engineering lingo for they screwed up big time) At the surface, the river flows east to west, away from Lake Michigan, as expected. But deep below, near the riverbed, water travels west to east, toward the lake.

    There is still much more, as you see on February 10, 2010 there was an earthquake of around 4.0 demonstrating the area is hot! That is right sports fans we are now experiencing earthquakes right on top of this engineering marvel in the greater Chicago area not far from the New Madrid fault line, one of the most terrifying faults on the planet! It goes every two to four hundred years and reverses the course of the Mississippi, knocking pictures off the walls in New York State. How smart is this?

  68. Wow! Thanks Stanley for that example of “fantasy-thinking.” Cool.

    Nope. This level of deadly radiation is not something humans can adapt to. we simply get sick and die. That is what’cha call reality.

    welcome to the real world.

    Have a good day,

    Bob

  69. Well, the docu is a bit dated. The death toll of Chernobyl is up to a million people now.

    Italy even has a “National Thyroid Day.”

    Bob

  70. Well, nice try, Dale, but, that is a bummed argument based on the 17th Century idea of “dose”.

    We don’t sell that snake oil here.

    Dude, dilution is Not the solution to pollution.

    All guys like you are doing is poisoning more people by finely dividing the nuclear poison. One radioactive ray through one cell will start cancer.

    You cannot, with all your magic fantasy thinking, reduce more that that.

    It is Criminal to even try to sell those lies.

    Bob

  71. Thanks Clyde for mentioning that.

    Let’s just stop drinking milk or eating milk products, folks. Clyde is right, but, let’s take some responsibility for ourselves and our kids.

    Milk is out.

    Bob

  72. Hi Dale,

    Thank you for pointing that out so succinctly, it’s appreciated.

    Hmm, of course, the inverse of that applies, too.

    In other words, folks, when the tiny radioactive particle is inside your body the distance is nil and the 850 “rounds” a minute I call the ‘lil bullets a tiny milligram shoots as it destroys your insides.

    It ain’t pretty.

    Bob

  73. Well, nice of you to drop by, Anthony,

    To put it succinctly, I disagree with your comment. I think you are a day late and a dollar short. Here’s why:

    The reactors cores started melting down three hours after the tsunami hit and swept away the fuel tanks for the Emergency Generators. No juice = no water = Meltdown. It really is as simple as that. It was the new reality that controlled everything.

    That new Reality meant Japan would soon be uninhabitable and the next decision was whether to Evacuate the Japanese Main Island of Honshu. Whether the Leadership decided to or not is a moot point now. The Reality is that millions of people were Sacrificed in place – where the live, stand, walk, right there. They are goners – condemned to death by the lethal levels of radiation.

    That ought to do for a start, let’s discuss.

    Have a good day, Glad to have you writing on the website,

    Bob Nichols

  74. You are correct. Issues like the one in Japan have very far reaching effects – literally on which the way wind is blowing. “Natural Weathering” reduces the effects of contamination. Water dilutes it. The more diluted a contaminate is – the less risk it is to the environment and people. People live in areas subjected to nuclear weapons 60+ years ago. The radioative contimnants however, will be around for many human life times.

    The picture is, howeve bleak, very bleak for nuclear power. Take a look in Europe. Lots on nuc plants there.

    Who knows how many of the events will play out in our future.

    Dale R. Suiter

  75. I have to imagine that many here have read or heard of speculation that all of the radiation is not coming from just Fukushima, but also the sea floor at the epicenter site of the earthquake. Because of the hmming and hawwing while doing the political foot shuffle I am quite certain that there are underhanded dealings here that if discovered, would turn the entire western global banking apparatus into a giant target. That’s when things really get interesting, and we will all see full well that these privateering scumbags need to be sent straightaway to the plants, sans any protective gear, and do the cleanup of the mess they made.
    As far as what to do about the radiation…this isn’t going away soon. I think we all can see that. Sure you can take precautions for some time but eventually there wont be any clean anything available anymore, as the radioactivity will have permeated everything. Is it still life if you live in a cinder block cave with a geiger counter as your only friend? I definitely am concerned. I have several pounds of powdered kelp harvested before all of this, as well as several pounds of powdered wheat grass (chlorophyll) also harvested prior. While we know that the iodine supplements (pill, liquid) are the most effective, I can’t give that to my kids or It’ll kill them faster than the radiation. So natural is my only solution. Just have to keep flushing them out and saturating the thyroid with clean iodine. Other than that, we would have to live in a bubble for years, if not ever.
    We’re gonna start seeing politicians, actors, other rich aholes disappearing soon, into their spider holes and arks and whatever else. Good riddance. They better hide. Hopefully we can get some kind of outside intervention by then too, spiritual, alien, maybe those are the same thing, IDK. Good luck all!

  76. You-all seem to be missing The Main Point here: Not everyone died who was downwind from Chernobyl 25 years ago…. and so these current toxic problems will reduce the Earth population by about 4 billion and the remaining “humans” will be genetically radioactive/radiation-proof, and be able to eat all the radioactive veggies. Viola!

  77. This is and international emergency and all experts on nuclear radiation and power plant construction must immediately organise their efforts and isolate the radioactivity from the biosphere…not an easy task, maybe impossible. Where is GE now? The snake oil salesman from the nuclear power industry are no where to be seen! Misinformation and lies..modus operandi of the so called ‘nuclear priesthood’ and government shills…the Japanese government should arrest the Nuclear officials and hold them until ‘shit starts happening’! This is similar to the Gulf Oil Spill. BP, took over and sprayed toxic corexit over the gulf while Obama and the Coast Guard stood aside….People are sick, the gulf is poisoned, fishing industries destroyed. The attorney general and governor should have arrested the BP executives and held them accountable…where are the leaders and accountability? Nuclear power is not safe; no where to store the waste, they dont call it PLUTOnium for nothing! Dont dump the water into the ocean..contain the waste and recirculate it for 1000’s of years in large concrete towers. Stop building these plants! Pray for the Japanese and all life on this amazing planet! Doug

  78. Perchlorate contamination in drinking water adversely affects the thyroid,especially in young children. california,by law,has designated a maximum contamination level(MCL) for drinking water.The EPA has designated a maximum reference dose(RfD) pending designation of their MCL. Radioactive Iodine-131 from Japan,when consumed in water or milk,adversely affects the thyroid,especially in young children.In every EPA RADNET location in which the EPA measures radioactive Iodine 131 from Japan in the drinking water and/or the milk supply,the EPA should issue a warning alert requiring each of those locations to measure the perchlorate contamination level in their drinking water and/or milk supply. Locations with perchlorate levels equal to,or exceeding the CA MCL, and equal to,or exceeding the EPA RfD and measured levels of I-131 SHOULD RECEIVE AN ADVISORY FROM THE SURGEON GENERAL to have thyroid functions evaluated with additional advice concernining future I-131 contamination with accumulations thereof.

  79. Interesting. Good article. May want to explore RAD’s or radiation absorbed dose information too folks.

    The farther away one is from nuclear radiation including increasing downwind distance from the site of contaimination – the less the exporsure and the less RAD’s one will be exposed to.

  80. Yes. We need to do the best we can to protect our families and ourselves. But right now the world priority needs to be to help Japanese people get out of the way of the catastrophe, a vast and many-faceted undertaking. The US government and its corporate sponsors, patrons and clients in the US-based nuclear industry have an enormous responsibility here, especially given their role in the genesis of the Japanese nuclear program.

    I have outlined that intertwined history of nuclear politics in the US and Japan in some detail on this web site at “From Hiroshima to Fukushima, 1945-2011” at at “Racism, Cover-Up and Corporate Fraud in the Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe.”

    There needs to be a worldwide insistence that the small-time fraud artists at TEPCO move aside to let a truly international response take over the crisis management in the months, years, decades and centuries during which this immense crisis will continue to unfold. Large areas of Japan, including Tokyo, will probably have to be evacuated. Planning for that eventuality needs to begin yesterday.

    The pitiful responses of those on the scene so far points to the huge failures at the highest levels of authority where the real criminal responsibility lies for allowing the conditions of this industrial accident to unfold in the way it has since President Eisenhower laid the foundations for the debacle in 1953 with his “Atoms for Peace” propaganda at the UN.

    The US nuclear war apparatus is no doubt the main locus of the expertise and technology which must be brought into place immediately to deal with this global catastrophe. Like the financial debacle and the BP/Gulf of Mexico disaster, the Fukushima debacle demonstrates that the spree of deregulation going back to propaganda of GE shill Ronald Reagan has gone way too far.

  81. Chuckling …. Hi Mr. Nice Guy, Good comment.

    Many times different numbers mean different systems of measurements are being used, probably because of different reasons.

    In Europe they like the Becquerel abbreviated as a Bq. Pretty straightforward. One radioactive disintegration is one Becquerel, y’know?

    America uses the Curie, among others. One Curie is 37 Billion radioactive disintegrations or Counts.

    Hard to believe, eh?

  82. I suggest a big ol bag of Mary Jane… The original anti cancer drug. And unless you’ve got a ticket off the planet, I think there’s not much any of us can do about this except take whatever steps we can, and pray. I really would like some kind of internationally peer-reviewed measurements taken, the fact that the numbers are all over the place makes me think that this situation is, at the least, not under control, and at the worst… I mean, cmon. If this is how the world ends, I’m gonna be disappointed, the world ends largely with the population sitting on ass commenting on the Internet.. Oh… Um… Where’s my bowl? I guess I’ll end with: probably not a bad time for god to make some kind of holy intervention?

  83. If you can find one, the AN/PDR-63 is a very nice US military surplus radiation detection set. A month ago they were available and selling for about $200. These run on four AA batteries and are very well-made. The set can detect low levels of radiation for checking food and water and includes a skin probe. Uncle paid many thousand 1960s dollars each for these. The readout is in RADs but you can easily convert to other scales. To measure CPM or counts per minute as found on http://www.radiationnetwork.com/ set to lowest scale and count pops in the headphones for one minute. I have been monitoring at my location and find my results in agreement with those at the above site.
