18: PEAK DEATHS IN US FROM FUKUSHIMA: This graph, based on
data from the Centers for Disease Control, indicates that
the peak period of excess deaths in the US was April 23-May
21, 2011, in the West North and South Central regions, with
a peak death date (West North Central: from 0% on April 23
to 34% increase on May 7 - see table below on left as of 7/9/11).
The CDC excess deaths data for each region (below on right),
based on age groups, indicates that the elderly have had significant
excess death rates in all 6 regions, which is expected for
people in their older years with compromised health histories.
However, the significant increases for the 45-64 age group
(sometimes higher than for the elderly), is surprising but
may be due to bomb testing exposure in childhood (1947-63),
or Gulf-era veterans exposure to depleted uranium since 1990.
The very high increase in death rates – 18.7% - in the
25-44 age group in the West South Central region (Oklahoma,
Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana) is hard to explain without
pointing to the military, since there are many military bases
in those states, and today veterans tend to settle near military
bases when they get out of active duty so they can use veterans

Crazy High Radioactive Rainfall in Indianapolis
posted 2011-08-16 by potrblog
samples were taken in Indianapolis Indiana on 7/3 and 7/4 of
2011 as part of our 4000 mile radioactive road trip.
7/3 sample was bone dry dust wiped from the hood of my car,
it had rained heavily approximately 6 hours earlier. The 7/4
sample was from fresh rainfall and returned a radioactivity
of approximately 10 times greater than background radiation.
decided against publishing a back-calculated radioactivity for
the 3am 7/3/11 rainfall because of the known unknowns regarding
the sample and the high radioactivity the calculation returned.
Disinformation] Radiation Levels Worldwide Are Falling (video)
[Editor's Note: even if true for airborne fallout, radioactive
particle contamination of food and water remains a serious long
term issue. Since posting, this video has been made "private"
requiring log on. I suspect it is disinfo, because it is contradicted
by rising readings in the U.S. and Japan]
