Nuclear updated 6-17-2011
Here in the above video we are looking at nuclear hell on earth, a night film of the radioactive steam that continues to rise from Fukushima 24 hours a day. Arnie Gundersen, a former nuclear power industry executive, is one of the experts who has been saying from day one that the nuclear crisis in Japan was much worse than they were telling us.
He was absolutely correct. Finally, three months later we are getting some numbers on what the real dangers are. And finally we can begin to understand the enormous cover-up of the nuclear doom that is reaching lungs all over the west coast of America, Canada, Alaska, Hawaii and at least half of Japan! For infants it’s a terrible valley of death we have created for them. As we shall see for years all of them have been born with already polluted bloodstreams and now the very young ones are dying in greater numbers on the west coast of the United States since Fukushima blew up.
After the first week, officials had enough information to call for evacuation of a wide area in Japan and also Hawaii, Alaska and the entire west coast of North America. They really should have evacuated all of northern Japan and also the west coast but that was almost as impossible as evacuating the entire planet or the entire northern hemisphere.
Evacuation of planet earth might be the best way for humanity to avoid the terrible nuclear, heavy metal and chemical toxicity we are now facing all at the same time. Avoiding exposure is always the best plan but there is no way to avoid breathing in air contaminated with tiny hot particles. Inhalation issues are much more frightening than ingestion issues because you can pick and choose what you eat and drink but you can't buy bottled air.
Nuclear Toxicity Syndrome is about how to survive in nuclear and chemical hell. But one cannot do what is necessary to survive hell if a person doesn’t know they are living in one. It just keeps getting worse by the day and now we have Fort Calhoun nuclear plant outside Omaha, Nebraska on emergency alert as first fire and now flooding threatens to overwhelm yet another nuclear facility. With Mother Nature now angry (in a most bitter sense) we are really in more serious trouble than any of us would be comfortable imagining. We knew nuke power plants were bad news but who would think they would build them on fault lines or in flood zones?
On CNN Arnie was asked, “So should people on the west coast be worried? Gundersen side-stepped just a bit saying, “Well, the average person breathes in about 10 cubic meters a day, and the filters out there for April show that they were breathing in, per day, about five particles. Now these are charged, which is why we call them ‘fuel fleas’ since they latch onto lung tissue. We’re at a point now where you just can’t run from the particles that are still in the air. We call them ‘fuel fleas’ also because they’re incredibly small, smaller than the thickness of your hair.”
That’s Mr. Gundersen’s way of saying, yes, there are definite risks tied to these “hot particles.” But that really does not answer the question. I am afraid I will have to be brutally honest and be the bearer of really terrible news. The information coming out about hot particle concentrations near Fukushima, Tokyo, and now Seattle tell us that not only should all those populations be worrying but their governments should have been issuing evacuation orders months ago.
They did not of course except in a too-tight circle around Fukushima, which is getting 40 times more than in Tokyo or Seattle. Because of the jet stream in April, after the large explosions that destroyed three reactor buildings, it was as dangerous in Seattle and much of the west coast of North America as in Tokyo.
only takes one of these
A new report from independent scientists in Japan found a much greater release of “hot particles” from the Fukushima power plant than originally estimated. These include radioactive isotopes of cesium, strontium, uranium, plutonium, cobalt-60 and many others. The average person in Tokyo is thought to have inhaled 10 “hot particles” per day throughout the month of April 2011. The inhabitants of Fukushima were estimated to have inhaled 30-40 times more than that—or up to 400 hot particles per day every day that month. In Seattle, WA in the Northwestern U.S., it is estimated that the average person absorbed five “hot particles” per day during the month of April 2011, or 10 “hot particles” per day if they are athletes who are working out. These invisible atomic particles become lodged in your lungs, intestines, bone or muscle.
Professor Christopher Busby, scientific secretary of the European Committee on radiation risks, says that fuel rods at Fukushima got blown sky high, that concentrations of uranium and plutonium particles had been detected in air filters in Hawaii and the Marianas Islands by the end of April. So people knew about this but they were not talking.
Gundersen says, “Well, the radiation initially comes out as a big cloud of gases, and that’s what you can measure with a Geiger counter. But now what we’re finding are these things called ‘hot particles,’ and in the industry it’s interesting because in Seattle it didn’t go down much. It was about five particles a day, because most of the time, as we talked about in April, the wind was blowing toward the west coast.”
hot particle is defined as an alpha-emitting particle
Severe damage and disruption of tissue in the lungs are associated with exposure to these types of nuclear particles. The most relevant lung experiment is Bair’s Pu 23902 inhalation study with beagles. Twenty of the 21 dogs that survived more than 1600 days post exposure had lung cancer.
government recommends that the maximum
Let’s say that the official numbers were five “hot particles” per day (10 if one is physically active outdoors) for everyone on the west coast for the month of April. Now let us be very conservative and say that this has dropped from the initially high post-explosion levels at Fukushima down now to one a day. At one a day that would still be 30 of these death particles a month. So perhaps the average person has already absorbed in these three months approximately 200 radioactive particles into their lungs and other tissues. When you think that if even one of these 200 is plutonium, we have to think in terms of millions of eventual cancer deaths!
All of these hot particles will burn the local tissues. They will compromise health in a myriad of ways. But doctors will stand by not having a clue what to tell their patients to do except receive more radiation diagnostic scans and more radiation treatments for cancer patients. The allopathic paradigm will not survive Fukushima because it is utterly ignorant about the approaches that stand a chance of helping us get through this.
Gundersen says, “That’s why we were warning you to wash your lettuce and things like that. Now what that means is that these hot particles can lodge in your lung or in your digestive tract or in your bone and, over time, cause a cancer. But they’re way too small to be picked up on a large radiation detector.” This is one of the reasons many people felt something wrong in the first weeks after the radiation started pouring out of Japan. Sensitive people will register such an invasion of hostile chemical and radioactive toxicity even though radiation detectors will not.
Gundersen understandably would have a hard time telling people how bad it really is. He is not a doctor but he knows full well what only one particle of plutonium will do to surrounding lung tissues. How does anyone tell 200 million people to get out of Dodge or tell them it’s already too late since health-damaging contamination has already taken place?
Evacuation is the only way to avoid continued exposure but hardly anyone perceives it this way. I received a letter from someone in southern California today asking if it was okay to go to Hawaii for a vacation. My real answer to her was you should abandon not only your travel plans but also your home in L.A. and move to the southern hemisphere.
“Geiger counters simply cannot measure whether or not someone has ingested a hot particle but we know they’re here because the air filters have measured these radioactive particles and they’ve been found in the topsoil, in water supplies and in the milk produced on both coasts of the U.S. This suggests that the same would be true of the meat of any livestock raised outdoors—and of the vegetables grown outdoors,” says Gundersen.
A photograph of a monkey’s lung is shown, with a major depression at its center where a “hot particle” is embedded in the tissue. This is a photo of a “hot particle”, in this case a one-micron particle of plutonium, and it shows the alpha tracks emitted from that particle in one year. This particle has bombarded the surrounding tissue with radiation and damaged it quite dramatically—just one particle. Gundersen says the body will fight off an irritant such as this and it will usually win but sometimes a hot particle will cause cancer. They will all put wear and tear on infected people’s immune systems.
really do not want even one of these hot
Plutonium in Lung Tissue: The dark, star-like image in the above photograph (magnified 500 times) shows tracks from alpha particles radiating from a speck of plutonium lodged in the lung tissue of an ape. Alpha radiation from plutonium and other alpha-emitting radionuclides can be blocked by skin or even a piece of paper but it is the most biologically destructive form of ionizing radiation when the alpha-emitting substance is deposited in the soft tissue of internal organs like the lung. The alpha tracks shown above were captured over a two-day period.
hot particles result in an
The damaged number three reactor was in its first fuel cycle using MOX nuclear fuel with plutonium. If this MOX reactor goes into full meltdown spewing plutonium dust across Japan and everywhere else, it is lights out via cancer for anyone who breathes the stuff. The half-life of various plutonium isotopes ranges from minutes to 80 million years. Plutonium-239 has a half-life of 24,100 years meaning it takes that long to lose half of its radioactive potency—nothing compared to depleted uranium, which counts its time in billions of years. Uranium-235 has a half-life of 700 million years. And caesium, which tends to go airborne easily, has a half-life of 30 years.
The fuel rods at all six reactors at the stricken Fukushima Daiichi complex contain plutonium. Only six percent of the fuel rods at the plant’s unit 3 were a mixture of plutonium-239 and uranium-235 when first put into operation. The fuel in other reactors is only uranium, but plutonium is created during the fission process. This means the fuel in all of the stricken reactors and spent fuel pools contain plutonium. Plutonium is super nasty stuff, especially damaging to lungs and kidneys. Inhaling or ingesting only one radioactive particle of plutonium can cause cancer.
Valley of Death
In Nuclear Toxicity Syndrome you will read about the dangers we are all facing, especially for those billions who live in the northern hemisphere. If you have not noticed, things are getting real dangerous out there and the media is going to make sure you are blindsided by events they will not inform you of until it is too late.
This is a tough book and it’s going to face you with some very frightening information. Though the main thrust is nuclear radiation, we also will look at mercury as an invisible chemical cloud that has contaminated everything. Lead too is still a problem but they don’t inject lead into babies or plant it in people’s mouths like they do with mercury, a heavy metal more toxic than lead.
Would you believe they are just now finally stopping the use of a drug (another heavy metal actually) that farmers have given to chickens for decades. Arsenic is being pulled off the market after federal scientists found a potentially carcinogenic form of arsenic in the livers of animals treated with the substance.
In the past two and a half years thousands of workers, villagers and children in at least nine of mainland China’s 31 province-level regions have been found to be suffering from toxic levels of lead exposure, mostly caused by pollution from battery factories and metal smelters.
In many areas of the world people are already at death’s door from chemical and heavy metal pollution. Pollution has reached a zenith and has gone even higher with huge forest fires that have released huge amounts of radioactive and chemically contaminated soil into the atmosphere. Then we added mega oil disasters and now nuclear hell on earth. Is there any nice way to refer to this disaster? Look at that video again above that is a vision of what human darkness can conjure up.
We might as well have shot ourselves in the head. There is nothing for us humans to be proud of if we honestly sweep our minds across reality as it is presenting itself to us this year. For infants it’s a terrible valley of death we have created for them. As we shall see for years all of them have been born with already polluted bloodstreams and now the very young ones are dying in greater numbers since Fukushima blew up.

As the Wall Street Journal reports (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703806304576233221749626458.html), the U.S. government has now admitted that radiation is being found in milk from Washington state. They say it's "safe" to drink, of course. That's the U.S. government for you: Irradiated milk is safe, but raw milk is dangerous!
* The battle to save Fukushima is now over, as Japanese officials admit the nuclear power complex must now be abandoned and entombed (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1371793/Fukushima-nuclear-plant-entombed-concrete-Japan-admits-lost-battle-crippled-reactors.html?ito=feeds-newsxml). The Dailymail published, "officials said it would mean switching off all power and abandoning attempts to keep the nuclear fuel rods cool." The problem with that, of course, is that there are already "three raging meltdowns" under way as Dr. Kaku explains (below). If you abandon efforts to cool the fuel rods, then an accelerated meltdown is "inevitable," says Dr. Kaku.
* Japanese nuclear experts now admit it will require 20 years to decommission the Fukushima nuclear reactors. (http://english.kyodonews.jp/news/2011/03/82090.html)
* Cesium-137 has now been found 25 miles from Fukushima at such dangerously high concentrations that they far exceed the threshold of land abandonment used by the Soviet Union following the Chernobyl catastrophe (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/31/world/asia/31japan.html?_r=1&partner=rss&emc=rss). This is raising questions of whether the evacuation zone around Fukushima should now be expanded.
* It has now been revealed that Japan's nuclear disaster preparedness plans were written by complete morons. The entire Fukushima power plant complex, for example, called for only one emergency stretcher to be on-site, and only 50 protective suits (even though hundreds of people worked there). Do you see shades of the TITANIC at play here? (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703712504576232961004646464.html)
* In a shocking video interview, physicist Dr. Michio Kaku explained, "If it goes to a full-scale evacuation of all personnel, it means that firefighters are no longer putting water onto the cores. That's the only thing preventing a full-scale meltdown at three reactor sites. Once they evacuate, then we past the point of no return. Meltdowns are inevitable at three reactor sites, leading to a tragedy far beyond that of Chernobyl, creating permanent dead zones in Japan." Watch that video at: http://naturalnews.tv/v.asp?v=604AB3FA803FF3647DF6E34EC5E8C8A0
* Meanwhile, the Fukushima denialists are in full swing, complaining that anyone talking about Fukushima's meltdown is "fearmongering." One especially idiotic journalist in the UK constructed a completely fabricated article today, claiming that "nobody has suffered or will suffer any radiological health consequences [from Fukushima]." How's that for a total denial of reality? This writer goes on to say, "The nuclear power plants in the stricken region have suffered less damage and caused less trouble to local residents than anything else that was there." (I'm not linking to this source because they don't deserve the attention, but trust me, this is from a major newspaper in the UK.) It just goes to show you that these spin doctors will stop at nothing to try to convince people that nuclear power is the safest thing in the world. There's little question that most of these denialists are on the payroll of the nuclear industry (or just hate the human race for their own twisted or demonic reasons).
* As reported by the New York Times (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/31/world/asia/31japan.html?_r=1&partner=rss&emc=rss), "The level of radioactive iodine 131 in the waters off the Daiichi plant continued to increase on Thursday, rising to 4,385 times the statutory limit... The increases raise the possibility that contaminants from the plant are continuously leaking into the sea."
* Fears about radioactive seafood are growing as Japan's ocean waters are increasingly contaminated with very high levels of radiation, now even exceeding the 3,300 times recently reported (http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Tainted-seafood-fears-spread-apf-166668369.html?x=0&.v=19).
But remember, everyone: There's nothing to worry about according to your government! Don't be concerned about radiation. It's invisible, so it must be safe!
At least, that's the message we're hearing from many "official" sources. The FDA, laughably, thinks that drinking radioactive milk in the U.S. is just fine for you, but drinking RAW milk is extremely dangerous!
Here's the breakdown of the latest news from Fukushima, including a summary of the status of all six reactors:
I've also posted a 7-minute video news update
on the Fukushima incident at YouTube, viewable here:
Detectable amounts of radiation from Fukushima

Radioactivity Basics - Facts About Radiation And Radioactivity
With the current news that nuclear
fallout radiation from Japan has hit the US the US
has put real time radiation monitoring data online. Keep in mind this is government data. They are not
going to tell us the real truth.
As Of Today, Radionuclides From Fukashima Have Been Detected Over N.A.
Nuclear Physicist Kaku, who works with Con Edison of New York, claims it is now a race against time to
get Fukashima buried. He believes that the breech in Reactor 3 trumps all attempts at rescue, the
increasing core radioactivity splillage into free flowing water which burns skin on contact, is increasingly
making everythinng unworkable at the site. That water....of course....will drain directly into the N. Pacific Ocean.
As the company withdraws its men, the other two cores will be left unattended and three meltdowns may result,
making Chernobyl look like kindergarten.
Here's today's story on the worsening radiation situation:
And here's a story from Ethan Huff about the
growing radioactive fallout contamination of the water, food and air:

Japan before and after
Per the usual, just like with the BP spill when
the Government puts information online they bury
it so deep it’s very hard to find. Then once you do find what you are looking for it takes a month
worth of Sundays to get through it all.
So this guy made an application that generates
thumbnails of all of the real time Japan nuclear
radiation monitoring data for the major US west coast cities every
hours 15 minutes and
posts them right here. (After watching Fairbanks Gamma Graph from jump from 1,000 CPM
to over 30,000 CPM in just minutes my initial assumption that these graphs were slow moving
and discernible differences would take hours was proven incorrect. I now see the graphs and
thumbnails will show spikes much faster than I anticipated). If 50 cpm equals about .02 mrem/hr
hen 1000 cpm equals about .4mrem/hr which is still low but significant.
This will allow you to quickly check the status
of all active EPA radioactive fallout monitors
at once on this single. As more monitors come online I will update the app to include data
from those monitors.
Update: Looks like this is up just
in time as independent
radiation monitoring has just gone offline.
Keep in mind though this is Government supplied/censored data.

RadStickers, as little as $2 each.
The RadSticker is an inexpensive citizen's dosimeter which could minimize panic in the event
of a radiological incident. The downside is there is a waiting list now to get one and it only measures
large doses. Available at http://www.ki4u.com/products1.php Has 8 shadings from 0 Rads to 400 Rads.
Refer to chart in main 3-17 newsletter to put dose versus effects into perspective. This company also
carries the www.NukAlert.com Nuke Alert key chain monitor. They also carry Potassium Iodide and
Thyrosafe iodine sources. And geiger counter meters but the one I have , a CDV-720 only measures
in Rads. The smallest mark on it would measure 100 millirads. If you can measure anything, you are in
big trouble. Do a google search for geiger counters to find ones that have more meaningful scales, like
measuring in 0 - 1 millirem or millrads for example. Remember the difference between radiation and
contamination. Contamination is the flourlike fallout particles that float down and settle out which contain
radioactive atoms emitting alpha, beta, and gamma radiation as they attempt to stabilize out. Depending
upon the isotopes involved these can have halflives (the time required for half of it to decay out) in the
millions and billions of years which means practically speaking, they will never stabilize out
and will continue to emit radiation for as long as they are present. The half-life of various plutonium isotopes
ranges from minutes to 80 million years. Plutonium-239 has a half-life of 24,100 years meaning it takes
that long to lose half of its radioactive potency—nothing compared to depleted uranium, which counts
its time in billions of years. Uranium-235 has a half-life of 700 million years. And cesium, which tends
to go airborne easily, has a half-life of 30 years. It's why farmers in the UK raise sheep
and cows that are radioactive. They eat grass which contains fallout particles from Chernobyl which are
still radioactive. The grass takes the particles up from the soil. The radiation emitted from them can never
be stopped. That's why it is so important to not injest these internally. If these particles settle out on your
skin, they can be washed off, but if you injest them internally, they are virtually there forever, although some
can be chelated out by using clay and other chelating agents.
From http://www.ki4u.com/products1.php you can also buy a pocket dosimeter and charger for about
$110 (the charger is $65, the dosimeters are $45 each). But again these measure high doses only. These
can tell you what your accumulated radiation exposure is over short periods of time. A good explanation
of what these devices can measure is found at http://www.radmeters4u.com/ Lots of good information at this site.
Q: What's the Difference Between Alpha, Beta and Gamma Radiation?
A: Everything in nature would prefer to be in a relaxed, or stable state. Unstable atoms undergo nuclear processes that cause them to become more stable. One such process involves emitting excess energy from the nucleus. This process is called radioactivity or radioactive decay. "Radiation" and "radioactivity" are often confused, the proper relationship is that "radioactive atoms emit radiation."
The three main types of nuclear radiation emitted from radioactive atoms are:
|Alpha: These are actual particles
that are electrically charged and are commonly referred to as |
|Beta: These are also actual particles that are electrically charged and are commonly referred to as beta particles. Beta particles travel faster and penetrate further than alpha particles. They can travel from a few millimeters up to about ten yards in open air depending on the particular isotope and they can penetrate several millimeters through tissue. Beta particle radiation is generally a slight external exposure hazard, although prolonged exposure to large amounts can cause skin burns and it is also a major hazard when interacting with the lens of the eye. However, like alpha particles, the greatest threat is if beta particle emitting radioactive material is inhaled or ingested as it can also do grave internal damage.|
|Gamma: Gamma rays are similar to x-rays, they are a form of electromagnetic radiation. Gamma rays are the most hazardous type of external radiation as they can travel up to a mile in open air and penetrate all types of materials. Since gamma rays penetrate more deeply through the body than alpha or beta particles, all tissues and organs can be damaged by sources from outside of the body. Only sufficiently dense shielding and/or distance from gamma ray emitting radioactive material can provide protection.|
Bottom Line: All three of the
primary types of radiation above can be a hazard if emitted from radioactive
material that was inhaled or ingested. Protected food and water and even a
simple inexpensive dust protector face mask can go a long ways to denying this
route of entry. However, for the penetrating gamma rays, it is essential to be
able to measure the strength of this type of radiation to then discover the
best protected shielding and distance options available. (See our FAQ entitled
Nuclear Blast &
Fallout Shelters FAQ for an understanding of nuclear bomb effects,
fallout, and effective sheltering options.) Also, in a shelter or home,
besides revealing the safest locations there, knowing the intensity of the
local gamma radiation outside will better indicate when it is again safe. Or,
safe enough to perform a brief essential chore outside. More information on
the specific physical damage caused by gamma radiation is below in the section
entitled: Which Survey Meter Would Be
Best For My Needs?
Example 2 - important information
Q: What's the Difference Between Roentgen, Rad and Rem Radiation Measurements?
A: Since nuclear radiation affects people, we must be able to measure its presence. We also need to relate the amount of radiation received by the body to its physiological effects. Two terms used to relate the amount of radiation received by the body are exposure and dose. When you are exposed to radiation, your body absorbs a dose of radiation.
As in most measurement quantities, certain units are used to properly express the measurement. For radiation measurements they are...
|Roentgen: The roentgen measures the energy produced by gamma radiation in a cubic centimeter of air. It is usually abbreviated with the capital letter "R". A milliroentgen, or "mR", is equal to one one-thousandth of a roentgen. An exposure of 50 roentgens would be written "50 R".|
|Rad: Or, Radiation Absorbed Dose recognizes that different materials that receive the same exposure may not absorb the same amount of energy. A rad measures the amount of radiation energy transferred to some mass of material, typically humans. One roentgen of gamma radiation exposure results in about one rad of absorbed dose.|
|Rem: Or, Roentgen Equivalent Man is a unit that relates the dose of any radiation to the biological effect of that dose. To relate the absorbed dose of specific types of radiation to their biological effect, a "quality factor" must be multiplied by the dose in rad, which then shows the dose in rems. For gamma rays and beta particles, 1 rad of exposure results in 1 rem of dose.|
Other measurement terms: Standard International (SI) units which may be used in place of the rem and the rad are the sievert (Sv) and the gray (Gy). These units are related as follows: 1Sv = 100 rem, 1Gy = 100 rad. Two other terms which refer to the rate of radioactive decay of a radioactive material are curie (Ci) and becquerel (Bq).
Bottom Line: Fortunately, cutting through the above confusion, for purposes of practical radiation protection in humans, most experts agree (including FEMA Emergency Management Institute) that Roentgen, Rad and Rem can all be considered equivalent. The exposure rates you'll usually see will be expressed simply in terms of roentgen (R) or milliroentgen (mR). For details on how much is too much "R", see the Q&A section entitled: Which Survey Meter Would Be Best For My Needs?
This SI unit is named after Rolf Maximilian Sievert. As with every SI unit whose name is derived from the proper name of a person, the first letter of its symbol is upper case (Sv). When an SI unit is spelled out in English, it should always begin with a lower case letter (sievert), except where any word would be capitalized, such as at the beginning of a sentence.
The unit gray measures absorbed radiation which is absorbed into any material. The unit sievert specifically measures absorbed radiation which is absorbed by a person. The equivalent dose to a person is found by multiplying the absorbed dose, in gray, by a weighting factor (W). The weighting factor (sometimes referred to as a quality factor) is determined by a combination of: the radiation type, the tissue absorbing the radiation, and other pertinent factors.
In terms of SI
1 Sv = 1 Gy · W (where Sv=sievert, Gy=gray, W=weighting factor specific to each type of radiation and tissue).
1 Gy = 1 J / kg of absorbing material
Sv = 1 J / kg of absorbing material · W
Frequently used SI multiples are the millisievert (1 mSv = 10−3 Sv = 0.001 Sv) and microsievert (1 μSv = 10−6 Sv = 0.000001 Sv).
Equivalent dose is measured in the United States in rem:
|1 rem = 0.01 Sv = 10 mSv|
|1 mrem = 0.00001 Sv = 0.01 mSv = 10 μSv|
|1 Sv = 100 rem = 100,000 mrem (or millirem)|
|1 mSv = 100 mrem = 0.1 rem|
|1 μSv = 0.1 mrem|
The rem and millirem (abbreviated mrem), as with other customary units in the United States, are in wider use among the general public, many industries, and government. However, SI units such as the sievert are frequently encountered in academic, scientific, and engineering environments.

Not saying HAARP created the Japan tsunami but look at the HAARP activity chart between March 9th and 11th.
Remember the Georgia Guidestones which tell us the illuminati are trying to reduce 6 billion people to 500 million. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=htzSAljJdhI
HAARP and the depopulation program - next prediction is
massive earthquakes in both California
and along the Oregon coast. The illuminati is an organization which dominates every aspect of our life , this
video shows the HAARP program and their depopulation Program , for Reducing the population of the
Earth , that they can successfully establish the NEW WORLD ORDER
Watch this video which tells of the potential cellular damage depleted uranium has.

The Japanese government today admitted that it is overwhelmed by unfolding events.
If millions of Japanese wondering what they need to do to get out of
harm’s way are confused, there is good reason for it. The Japanese
government as well as the American one and health officials around the world
are themselves confused about the potential dangers to the people of the
greater metropolitan Tokyo area, which is practically in the shadow of the
out-of-control nuclear power station. Imagine how they feel being so close.
It’s a nuclear nightmare up there in northern Japan. Is there anyone who
really wants to doubt that?
Top U.S. officials have testified before congress this week that the situation in Japan has reached catastrophic proportions on par with Chernobyl. Both the Secretary of Energy Steven Chu and Gregory B. Jaczko, the chairman of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission gave dire testimony before the House Energy and Commerce committee. This is not the same story being told in Tokyo, at least not yet. But Japan’s nuclear agency spokesman conceded that a “Chernobyl solution” of burying the reactors in sand and concrete was in the back of the authorities’ minds. A day later it is moving to the very front of their minds.
American officials in Japan continue to operate on the assumption that the danger level is higher than described by the Japanese and in this essay we continue to assume the dangers are stratospherically higher than even the American officials are admitting. At this point both the primary and secondary containment vessels at the Fukushima nuclear reactor #4 are breached. To make matters worse, radiation readings taken by the U.S. indicate that the cooling pond is empty, indicating the fuel rods are in a state of complete meltdown with no cooling to counteract the meltdown in progress. These events spell out NUCLEAR NIGHTMARE and there will be many deaths in this bad dream.
The U.S. has issued a 50-mile evacuation zone around the plant and even that might be too conservative of a radius as things get further out of hand. This is in contrast to Japanese directives that people within about 12 miles evacuate while those between 12 and 19 miles stay indoors. Yet there are strong indications that fuel rods have begun to melt and release extremely high levels of radiation, suggesting they should really start considering evacuating Tokyo.
t is time to get people out and it’s time for us to stop using fluoride in our water and mercury in our vaccines and dental products but that’s the problem with us humans and our cherished institutions—we don’t recognize the real dangers until it’s too late and we come up with all kinds of excuses and rationalizations to do or not do something. The frenetic series of efforts to get water into four of the plant’s six reactors is not working.
American officials say they suspect that the Japanese power company has consistently underestimated the risk and moved too slowly to contain the damage. To expect the politicians, nuclear power energy officials and the company owners to communicate in an unbiased/untwisted way about nuclear events is to be a fool. All they see are safety signs in their minds and they cannot let anything get in the way of the future of nuclear power even though it’s proving out to be the stupidest, most insane thing modern man has ever done. We will now learn this lesson the hard way. Does anyone have any doubt about that either?
As each hour passes in Japan, the world comes closer to reading news of one of the largest nuclear stations in the world going out of control creating a permanent hot spot on our planet that will result in nightmares for ages to come. It is already happening and we are within a hair’s breadth of incalculable suffering and harm to human civilization. Yet the risks are not being disclosed for fear of panic. The days and weeks ahead are going to give us a shocking wake-up call about who we are and what we have done and allowed to be done to our lives. It is a good time for prayers and a good time for some self-reflection.
The United Nations is forecasting a possible radioactive plume coming
across the Pacific Ocean and arriving
in California today, according to the New York Times. California is going to get dumped on by the jet stream from Japan with the fallout being the first whiffs from the first, most minor explosion at Fukushima. The radioactive fallout will contain uranium, cesium, tritium, strontium, and carbon 14 but not very much radioactive iodine. In our next essay entitled “No Danger, No Concern, No Sanity,” we will look more carefully at what to pay attention to regarding long-range, traveling nuclear fallout.
odine supplementation always makes perfect medical sense for an iodine-deficient population whether confronted with radioactive iodine or not. Dr. David Brownstein has tested 5,000 of his patients and has conferred with many of his colleagues who all sustain the reality that 95 percent of Americans are iodine deficient. Without sufficient iodine we are sitting ducks to toxicities of many kinds with radioactive iodine being only one. Fluoride in the drinking water is much more toxic to an iodine-deficient thyroid. They will not warn you about that and they will not give sufficient warning to what is happening in Japan and what lies ahead.
Soon it will be deadly +plutonium coming through. The fuel rods at all six reactors at the stricken Fukushima Daiichi complex contain plutonium. Only six percent of the fuel rods at the plant’s Unit 3 were a mixture of plutonium-239 and uranium-235 when first put into operation. The fuel in other reactors is only uranium, but even there, plutonium is created during the fission process. This means the fuel in all of the stricken reactors and spent fuel pools contain plutonium. Plutonium is super nasty stuff, especially damaging to lungs and kidneys. Inhaling or ingesting only one radioactive particle of plutonium can cause cancer.
are 3,400 tons of fuel in seven spent fuel pools within the six-reactor
plant, including one joint pool storing very old fuel from units 3 and
4. There are 877 tons in five of the reactor cores. That is a lot of
radioactive material and Japan is actually a very small place.
The media run by the super elites are not going to tell people what is really going on. You think they are telling the truth about what is happening in the Gulf states? You think they are going to warn the kids going down for spring break to stay out of the water? You think they are going to tell everyone to go out and buy both eating and external clay to help draw radioactive particles from the body? No they will not come out with any helpful informative information.
You would think they would give a heads up to the population about the usefulness of simple Arm & Hammer baking soda and how useful that can be to citizens worried about or actually suffering with radioactive contamination? Not a chance even though it’s been reported that you can clear soil of uranium with it, with sodium bicarbonate, the same stuff that you can stick in your refrigerator, brush your teeth and wash your hair with and even save a life in the emergency room. The world is already paying a high price for nuclear energy. It is not clean and green and certainly not safe but you will never get them to admit that. If a company like Boeing can fall to the temptation of arrogance and shoddy planes, as 60 Minutes exposed, what do you think the nuclear power industry is all about?
what aren’t they telling us? They are not telling us that the mixed
oxide fuel rods used in the compromised number three reactor at the
Fukushima Daiichi complex contain enough plutonium to threaten public
health with the possibility of inhalation of airborne plutonium
Plutonium is most dangerous when it is inhaled and gets into the lungs. The effect on the human body is to vastly increase the chance of developing fatal cancers. That is why in my protocol I call for use of glutathione sodium bicarbonate nebulization because it treats and helps clear the lung tissues. If one has anything above a zero chance of surviving the inhalation of airborne plutonium it’s going to be this kind of treatment as well as with the use of clay. Well actually increasing one’s chance from zero entails the use of a complete protocol for radiation exposure.
The damaged number three reactor was undergoing its first fuel cycle using MOX at Daiichi. If one of those MOX reactors blows, spewing plutonium dust across Japan and elsewhere, it is lights out via cancer for anyone who breathes the stuff. The half-life of various plutonium isotopes ranges from minutes to 80 million years. Plutonium-239 has a half-life of 24,100 years meaning it takes that long to lose half of its radioactive potency—nothing compared to depleted uranium, which counts its time in billions of years. Uranium-235 has a half-life of 700 million years. And cesium, which tends to go airborne easily, has a half-life of 30 years.

The term Microrems probably doesn't mean much to you. Let's put that number in better perspective.
A Rem is 1000 millirems (mrem)
When I first started working in the shipyard we were allowed a 5 Rem dose per year.
REMS and RADS are about equal, the REM has biological factors entered in is the main difference.
When I left ten years later the powers to be had lowered that number to 500 mrems per year, one
tenth of the previous doseage allowed. The symbol micro µ (looks somewhat like a U with a tail) means
one millionth, or ten to the minus 6. So a millionth of a rem is really .001 or 10 to the minus 3 mrems.
So a reading of 30 microrems really means .03 millirems/hr which is a good background radiation reading.
The Bakersfield readings of 232 to 234µRem was considerably higher than background.
Here are three sites you can use to
monitor radiation levels.
Before I go into further explanation I
want you to watch this video which does a very excellent job
As of March 18th
Although I have built a page at www.detailshere.com/radiationposioningprevention.htm that speaks
to minimizing the effects of radiation exposure, I haven't touched much on the problem at hand. The problem
is huge. There are now 6 reactors in trouble, fires burning in three of them, no coolant water on exposed
spent fuel modules in cooling pools, some fuel modules with the tops not covered with water at all, essentially
melting, evacuation zones have been extended to more than 20 miles, US Carriers out in the sea near Japan
had their radiation monitors go off and have relocated to avoid exposure to the crews, some reactor compartments
are now so hot radiation wise workers can't enter them, this is an extremely volatile situation that is going to
affect more than just Japan. I wish I didn't know what I do about the nuclear industry. How much it affects us
in the US is soley a function of how high the contamination goes. If it gets to the jetstream five miles up, the
contamination - think of it as particles smaller than a grain of flour - WILL come to the US. Contamination is
the small particles containing the radioactive atoms. The particles are radioactive and attempt to reach stability
by giving off emmissions in the form of alpha particles ( sizewise two netrons two protons like a helium atom,
very heavy and very high specific ionization - don't travel far but create much cell destruction in a short distance
if taken internally through breathing or drinking or eating the contaminated molecules.
Beta particles are the size of an electron, can be attenuated by 30' of air, or a piece of paper but again create cell destruction. Gamma radiation is similar to xrays except they originate from the nucleus of the atom and have
much higher energy levels. They pass through you with the speed of light, 3 x 10 to the 8th meters/sec, and
break apart DNA strands and change and damage the chromosones on those strands. Much of this contamination
may settle out in the ocean before it reaches the jetstream. We don't know yet. Obama's statement that it won't
reach the US and is a non event for us shows his ignorance on the subject. It already has at Bakersfield and
we certainly haven't seen the end of it. You can't just shut a reactor off like a car engine. Even with the boron
control rods put all the way in , the heat continues to build, and needs to be removed. Reactors run at very high temperatures and pressures, like 2500psi and 480 degrees fahrenheit. You can't just inject cool water into a
reactor easily. Like putting more air into an already full balloon. When water molecules go through the core and
absorb neutrons the hydrogen atoms in the water molecules (remember H2O) become deuterium (one extra
neutron in the nucleus) and tritium (two extra neutrons in the nucleus). Both of these are radioactive and emit
ionizing radiation . When they vent off steam from these reactors to relieve pressure, even though this is
filtered, some of this deuterium and tritium escapes to the atmosphere, along with other fissile daughter
radionuclides, like cesium 137, iodine 131,and metallic wear products like cobalt 60 because these particles
are so small. People have no idea of the seriousness of this situation. The Japanese people have no idea
of what radiation sickness is like. It's a slow agonizing death. They are being killed from inside out. Specific
ionization has no limits when the source of the radiation doesn't die or stop. Half lives of some of these particles
can be in the millions of years. There are probably few left in Japan remembering the pain and agonizing deaths
of those irradiated and contaminated by the Hiroshima and Nagazaki bombs. This event is no different, just
a different delivery mechanism. We are entering the time of troubles spoken of in the Bible. These is a lack
of information coming forth from both the US as well as Japanese Nuclear Regulatory Commissions.
