Sometimes we writers wake up and read something that makes us want to turn into vengeful angels. In this case I want to swoop across the human landscape of idiots who would try to mislead people with their stupidity about radiation and its effects (or lack thereof). Granted it is a difficult subject and a most painful one and, like just about everything else today, one that people would rather forget. Denial and avoidance are the watchwords of the day about everything that is threatening our comfort but in the end such attitudes just about guarantee that we will be hit from behind by a two-by-four.
In this case it is our children who will be, and have already been, hit hardest by a nuclear two-by-four. The initial radiation blast from Fukushima was particularly intense though it has been reported that the constant contamination since then is not near as great as when the reactor cores melted down almost 15 months ago.
This does not at all mean that we can relax. For those who prefer to listen to intelligent reporting about the dangers, watch this video here, and for a general overview of the situation that continues at Fukushima, watch here. It should be noted that first video does not cover the increased dangers of internal contamination when radioactive particles lodge inside the body but it is complicated enough as is.
Parents have a special responsibility to wake up, come out of the stupor the government and the press have put them into, and become fanatical about treating their children with medicinals that will strengthen them greatly against the effects of radiation. There is no doubt in my mind that we can take evasive action. Appropriate medical attention from doctors is needed but will not be provided since orthodox doctors are too busy playing dangerous games in their pursuit of power and wealth. People who actually favor the use of radiation in medicine and dentistry are not the ones we can look to for protection against radiation.
Just to give you an idea of the absurd mis- or dis-information that fills oncologists’ and radiologists’ heads:
Some patients worry about the safety of radiation therapy. Radiation has been used successfully to treat patients for more than 100 years. In that time, many advances have been made to ensure that radiation therapy is safe and effective. Before you begin receiving radiation therapy, your radiation oncology team will carefully design your plan to make sure that you receive safe and accurate treatment.
“Over a third of children in Japan’s Fukushima region could be prone to cancer if medics don’t apply more effort in treating their unusually overgrown thyroid glands.” A report shows that nearly 36% of children in the nuclear-disaster-affected Fukushima Prefecture have abnormal thyroid growths. After examining more than 38,000 children from the area, medics found that more than 13,000 have cysts or nodules as large as 5 millimeters on their thyroids, the Sixth Report of Fukushima Prefecture Health Management Survey states.
Pediatrician Helen Caldecott said, “The data should be made available. And they should be consulting with international experts ASAP. And the lesions on the ultrasounds should all be biopsied, and they’re not being biopsied. And if they’re not being biopsied, then that’s ultimately medical irresponsibility. Because if some of these children have cancer and they’re not treated, they’re going to die.”
The World Health Organization warns that young people are particularly prone to radiation poisoning in the thyroid gland. Infants face the direst consequences, as their cells divide at a higher rate. It is believed that some children were exposed to “lifetime” doses of radiation to their thyroid glands, says a report by Japan’s Institute of Radiological Sciences. We also know, though the government is not telling anyone, that the initial high levels of radioactive iodine hit both coasts of American and was reported further on in Europe as well during the initial month of the disaster.
But that’s nothing compared to what’s coming next. I can assure you that people with souls and are still able to feel are not going to like what they see when they push the button on this next video.
This video sequence over a period of 10 years after the Fukushima nuclear disaster depicts a great tragedy and it’s coming soon to North America. Using detailed computer simulations, researchers at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel investigate the long-term expansion. “In our models, we have placed great emphasis on a realistic representation of finer details of the flows,” said team leader, Prof. Claus Böning, “because the material spread not only through the main current, the Kuroshio, but mainly by intense and highly variable eddy currents.”
It looks like the Hawaiian Islands are already surrounded by the radiation flow and it will continue to creep forward and crash into the west coast of Canada and the United States in another year and a half. One thousand days after Fukushima exploded, the entire north Pacific is going to be polluted with radiation. Just to give Americans an idea what is already coming, South Korea and other Asian countries have banned 35 Japanese seafood products due to Fukushima radiation fears. Tuna fish swim much faster than the currents and have already been caught with high levels of radiation on the West Coast. Now these fish are both mercury toxic and radioactive.
There is fear that contaminated ocean waters may collect in packets and produce waves of highly concentrated nuclear toxins that could pose a dangerous toll to Americans. The paper itself reads, “After 10 years the concentrations become nearly homogeneous over the whole Pacific, with higher values in the east, extending along the North American coast with a maximum (~1 × 10−4) off Baja California.”
Scientists of course are not yet calculating in any kind of further disaster like a complete meltdown of any of the spent-nuclear-rod storage pools. A picture though, in this case a computer simulation, is worth a thousand words.

TEPCO’s new estimates suggest that its Fukushima reactor has released more than quadruple the amount of radioactive cesium-137 leaked during the Chernobyl disaster. But the method used to measure the damage may undervalue the hazard even further. The final estimate suggests that 400,000 TBq of iodine-131 leaked from Fukushima, which is indeed lower than during the Chernobyl incident, but only 4.5 times lower. Regarding the emission of cesium-137, Fukushima is far ahead its rival. Post-Fukushima estimations suggest that Chernobyl put out a total of 85,000 TBq of cesium-137 over the course of the disaster. The Fukushima reactor, however, has so far released 360,000 TBq of cesium-137, according to TEPCO.
Way back in March of 2011 radioactive iodine exceeding the safety standard for infants but not children or adults was found in water at a Tokyo purification plant. The level was about twice the safety standard for infants up to one year of age and two-thirds that for adults, the prime minister’s office said. Parents were advised to give only bottled water to infants.
The public is not being given a clear picture of what has already happened and is about to happen as radiation levels at the plant continue to climb. The Japanese public is being sacrificed to the radiation Gods (executives in the nuclear industry, doctors, scientists, public health officials, etc.) who all think and say that radiation is safe so we need not worry or pay any attention to what is going on.
I listened to an hour-long presentation from a nuclear engineer from the earliest days of the industry and he actually ate uranium to show us all how safe it was. His plug: build small nuclear reactors in every neighborhood! The real truth about radiation and the nuclear industry comes from Dr. Walter Russell, who was an even greater genius than Einstein. Russell wrote the book Atomic Suicide and in it he defines radiation as the death principle.
Though we need the radiation of the sun and some of background radiation from the Universe to live, we all slowly go to our death sooner or later. Radiation is a fact of life and its level determines the velocity at which each person succumbs. Into that formula we can inject a full protocol of medicinals and I have already written about this in the two books I have published since Fukushima exploded, one on Iodine and another titled Nuclear Toxicity Syndrome. Soon I will publish another.
