Should the public discover the true health costs of nuclear pollution, a cry would rise from all parts of the world and people would refuse to cooperate passively with their own death. – Dr. Rosalie Bertell
Plutonium has been detected in soil at a stricken nuclear plant in Japan and highly contaminated water has leaked from a reactor building. Plutonium has been found in soil at various points within Japan’s stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex. This is the most deadly material known to man.
Low levels of radioactive iodine believed to be from Japan’s disaster-stricken Fukushima nuclear power plant have been detected in the atmosphere in South Carolina, North Carolina and Florida, officials said on Monday the 28th March. And traces of radioactivity from damaged nuclear power facilities in Japan have been detected in rainwater in the northeast United States.
On Sunday the 27th we read that emergency workers struggling to pump contaminated water from Japan’s stricken nuclear complex fled one of the troubled reactors that day after reporting a huge spike in radioactivity, with levels 10 million times higher than normal in the reactor’s cooling system. The numbers were so high that the worker measuring radiation levels withdrew before taking a second reading, officials said. One hour later, for the second time this week, the Japanese printed a retraction saying so sorry, it was a mistake.
TEPCO Vice President Sakae Muto said a new test had found radiation levels 100,000 times above normal. It is unclear whether these mistakes are planned so the media can continue to manipulate the public. 100,000 times the normal seems less scary then 10 million but if it had been reported from the beginning accurately it would have been just as scary as the higher number.
Attorney Jonathan Emord writes, “The full extent of damage at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant is not public, either because the authorities in Japan are suppressing it or because the owners of the plant are; it appears that a meltdown of at least one of the plants has already occurred.”
Japan’s nuclear safety agency had warned Saturday that radioactivity inside the units was rising fast.And what can we expect with four reactors in various stages of collapse and 40 years of spent fuel rods on site. The operator of the facility said radiation in the water of the No. 2 reactor was measured at more than 1,000millisieverts an hour, the highest reading so far in a crisis triggered by a massive earthquake and tsunami on March 11.That compares with a national safety standard of 250 millisieverts over a year. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says a single dose of 1,000 millisieverts is enough to cause hemorrhaging.
In North America, people are typically exposed to about 3 millisieverts (mSv) of radiation per year. Pilots and stewards receive about 9 mSv of radiation per year. Nuclear industry employees receive a 20 mSv dose per year. A CT scan delivers between 10 and 20 millisieverts. An x-ray delivers between 6 and 8 mSv. Those radiation exposures are temporary, however, while inhalation and ingestion of radioactive particles involves a chronic exposure. Dangerous particles lodge in the tissues where they continue to irrigate adjacent tissues with continuous radiation. It’s a hot spot inside of us so that safe level stuff that might be dropping down on us, once it enters becomes a totally different and nasty story.
The lowest level at which cancer is reported to occur directly following exposure is at 100 mSv. Exposure to 1,000 mSv causes radiation sickness, including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and decreased white blood cell count. Exposure to 5,000 mSv causes death. Radiation is cumulative, as exposures throughout the year mount.
Contamination in the ocean is spreading and is reported about a mile (1.6 kilometers) farther north of the nuclear site than the last test. Radioactive iodine-131 was discovered offshore at a level 1,150 times higher than normal two weeks after the disaster started. There is plenty of evidence of the spreading radiation—from tap water in Tokyo 240 km (150 miles) south of the nuclear facility to particles found as far away as Iceland.
Greenpeace said its experts had confirmed radiation levels of up to 10 microsieverts per hour in a village 40 km (25 miles) northwest of the plant. It called for the extension of a 20-km (12-mile) evacuation zone. “It is clearly not safe for people to remain in Iitate, especially children and pregnant women, when it could mean receiving the maximum allowed annual dose of radiation in only a few days,” Greenpeace said in a statement, referring to the village where the radiation reading was taken.
The media, the governments, and the Tokyo Power Co. all seem to be conspiring to mislead the public. Truly it is not a good time to be doing this but habits are difficult to break. The situation is bad and getting worse every day as radiation is constantly being cast out into the environment, but you really would not really appreciate that if you look at any of the online news services like the New York Times or Yahoo News, which are much more concerned with Libya and the regular diet of news items.
Life goes on as normal in the mainstream where it’s impossible to break the thinking locked into the minds of so many that everything is going to be just fine. Well it’s not and that is the reality we have to face.
“The scary thing is the radiation,” said MitsuharuWatanobe, a retired high school teacher who had to leave his home about 25 km from the damaged complex. “There is a gap between what the newspapers write and what the government is saying. I want the government to tell the truth more.”
In Germany the people are already out on the streets demonstrating against nuclear power and even German Chancellor Angela Merkelsaid that her “view of atomic energy has changed since the events in Japan.”She was a supporter of nuclear power but that the post-tsunami crisis at the Fukushima plant had led her to rethink her position. Declaring Japan’s emergency a “turning point,” Merkel suspended for three months a planned extension of the life of German nuclear reactors, four of which are in Baden-Wuerttemberg. She also temporarily shut off the country’s seven oldest reactors pending a safety review.
Dr. Alexey Yablokov, who insists that a million people died as a direct result of Chernobyl, said, “We are seeing something that has never happened… a multiple reactor catastrophe including one using plutonium fuel as well as spent fuel pool accidents, all happening within 200 kilometers of a metropolis of 30 million people. Because the area is far more densely populated than around Chernobyl, the human toll could eventually be far worse in Japan.”
Infants and pregnant women are most at risk.
Are you worried yet? Neither the government nor the nuclear industry wants you to be. “Don’t do anything to protect yourself and your children” is the basic message put out in the press. Why should you or anyone else do anything if it’s a “safe” danger or one that has not arrived yet? The typical assessment for treatment normally reads like this:
“There is no specific treatment once exposure has occurred but management is generally supportive whilst the body recovers from the damage done—anti-nausea drugs and painkillers can be used to relieve symptoms of radiation sickness. Antibiotics may also be needed to fight off secondary infection. Blood transfusions may be necessary for patients suffering from anemia. Radiation-related illnesses tend to show themselves about 10 to 15 years after a radiation disaster.”
This is allopathic hogwash but medical authorities would rather millions of people suffer than admit that not only are they dead wrong but incredibly arrogant. There are treatments that one can administer both before and after contamination that will help prevent the formation of cancer and other problems resulting from radiation contamination.
What we do to save our own life after we’ve been exposed to radiation is the most important question we can ask at this point in time. It’s the question we should be asking before we have been exposed. The use of a list of medicinals of the most basic items includes concentrated nutritional medicines like iodine, sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), magnesium, purified water, vitamin C, and a whole list of other things (that will quickly be in very short supply). For instance, you need to know:
“VITAMIN C: This may be the most important thing of all to have on hand for many applications, including radiation protection. Store plenty of calcium ascorbate for all the family—it is best taken as a powder in juice—adults can take 5-10 grams per day, spread over 3-4 doses throughout the day, which is the equivalent of 5,000-10,000 mg. The only problem with high levels of vitamin C is the development of diarrhea as the colon absorbs more water—this is called the ‘bowel tolerance level.’ If this is reached, then it would be good to reduce the level of vitamin C until diarrhea subsides. Vitamin C cannot only protect against radiation but also repair damage from previous exposure. There is abundant scientific proof for this assertion,”,writes Dr. George Georgiou.
My initial publication on a full protocol is here. There are many studies about the dangers of nuclear radiation but hardly a word is said in public about what we must do if we are exposed to excessive radioactivity. In Japan the only thing you hear them being told to do is to stay indoors and to stop drinking the contaminated water and eating the contaminated food. And what are they going to do if all the water and food becomes contaminated?
I am racing against time to publish this book and am gathering all the information I can get my hands on to give a complete picture of how to detoxify and chelate the body of radioactive particles and heavy metals. I am asking all of my doctor friends from around the world to write and contribute to this effort. Fortunately I had materials prepared for another book titled Toxicity Syndrome and am drawing materials from several of my other books so it will be quite comprehensive and quite inexpensive.
Modern civilization takes toxicity very lightly and medical officials and doctors mostly cannot be bothered with it. This has been the case time and time again but now events will get out of hand and there is no way to hide such a big elephant from the public with so many millions of people local to the out-of-control nuclear complex. But they will try and they will lie and they will not warn others or even lift a finger to help their own children.
Vitamin C and Bioflavonoids: Not to be redundant; researchers at Harvard Medical School said, “Our experiment showed that vitamin C can prevent damage from radiation…it somehow keeps the radiation from killing the cells.” Their experiment indicates that the dosage for humans exposed to intensive radiation would be approximately 10 grams per day—a mega dose.
