Leuren Moret: Fukushima-depopulation update; exposes Gen. Albert Stubblebine; offers solutions (50:57 ), uploaded by ExopoliticsTV, 15 May 2012, "In this exclusive wide-ranging May 15, 2012 interview with Alfred Lambremont Webre, independent scientist Leuren Moret, MA, PhD (ABD), updates the viewing audiences on the status of the ongoing Fukushima radiation-depopulation rollout, stating that "Fukushima radiation has taken over our planet." Leuren Moret also exposes inaccuracies in a recent Fukushima "Estimate of the Situation" video by former Gen. Albert S. Stubblebine (U.S. Army, Ret.). Stubblebine has publicly denied his involvement in a secret 1968 - 73 DARPA time travel and teleportation program despite direct eye witness whistleblower testimony to the contrary by Washington State attorney Andrew D. Basiago. Leuren Moret also offers solutions on how humanity can adapt positively to the challenges of this Fukushima radiation false flag depopulation plan, instigated by an international war crimes racketeering organization led by the Dutch and British Monarchs and City of London bloodline families including the Rothschilds."

2012-05-14 Self-hypnosis model posted by Mochizuki, fukushima-diary.com, on May 14th, 2012
People often call me brave to evacuate Japan, but I haven’t found myself brave. It was just a rational decision. No bravery is needed to make a right decision. I think they need to be more brave to stay in Japan.
Rationally think, the only solution is to get out of Japan. No matter how many times you measure radiation, the radionuclide does not decay. Also, most of the radiation measurement of food is about only cesium, but nobody has measured actinoid, strontium and tritium in food. The possible symptom is not even known.
However, I was in Japan for 9 months. Because I had a lot of chance to touch the soil and work in dust, I’m aware that I was irradiated too. I even had the heart pain since Autumn. I recognize that fact that I might die in a few years. Dead cells of my heart will never come back alive. Now I’m living on the assumption that I will live only for another few years. Maybe not, maybe yes. If I don’t die, I’m just lucky.
I want to do my best before I leave this world.
On the other hand, most of the people don’t share this feeling with me. They keep trying to ignore the fact and forcing their family to take radiation risk.
Why? That’s what I have been thinking, and many people want to know as well. Now that everyone knows how terrible Fukushima accident was / is, the mysterious mentality of Japanese needs to be explained.
To get the right answer, we need to ask the right question. It’s ..Why don’t Japanese (Everyone in Japan regardless of the DNA type.) escape? It is not why mass media cover up or why government manipulates. Mass media report what people want to see. Government manipulates all through the history. The answer is in people.
I made this model below to explain why Japanese people don’t escape. It’s an interaction to demotivate people to evacuate which consists of 4 elements [read more here]

Following up this article..Power company “Even if we have enough power, we need to restart nuclear plants.” On 5/15/2012, Kepco announced they are going to raise the electricity price as double for this summer. They are going to increase the price from 20~ yen to 50 yen per kWh between 13:00 and 16:00, when [...more Here]this follows up on the article Following up this article..Power company “Even if we have enough power, we need to restart nuclear plants", May 8, 2012.
At Energy strategy meeting, Kansai electric power company (Kepco) commented, whether power is in oversupply or in shortage, they want to restart the nuclear plants. It has nothing to do with the power supply to restart the nuclear plants (Ooi nuclear plants).
In case this summer is as hot as 2010, Japan will be in short of power by 0.4%. However, it is estimated that other 3 power companies can support Kepco. Power generation with pumped-up water would add even more power supply.
The reason why Kepco and other power companies try to stick to nuclear power is because almost half of their property is related to nuclear.
In case of Kepco
Net assets 1.5 trillion yen
Nuclear facility and fuel 0.9 trillion yen
Left 0.6 trillion yen
Deficit in 2011 0.2 trillion yen
Nuclear is only needed to keep power companies rich. It has nothing to do with actual power supply."

2012-05-16 6 in 10 children under 12 have diabetes in Fukushima, posted by Mochizuki, fukushima-diary.com, on May 16th, 2012
Dr. Miura, the director of Iwase general hospital conducted health checkup for people in temporary dwellings in Sukagawa city Fukushima. The result showed 6 in 10 children under 12 years old have diabetes.
Dr. Miura states this is abnormal situation, but is guessing it’s because of the lack of exercise or stress.
Strontium90 (half life time 28.79 y) has beta decay to become yttrium90 (half life time 64 h).
Strontium90 and yttrium90 come to have radiative equilibrium within a month and strontium90 : yttrium90 becomes 3900 : 1 stably.
Yttrium90 is stocked in pancreas to cause pancreatic cancer or diabetes.
Dr. Miura is concerned about the mental problem of children in Fukushima, but the hospital is recruiting doctors and medical staff. The slogan is “To let citizens live longest in Japan.”
2012-05-16 West coast of Japan 10 times more contaminated than mandatory evacuation zone in Belarus
Posted by Mochizuki, fukushima-diary.com, on May 16th, 2012
Following up this article..1.4 µSv/h of alpha ray in Niigata
500,000Bq/kg of cesium was measured on the roof of Yamagata university, announced in Yamagata prefectural disaster committee on 5/30/2011.
It was the dust accumulated around the drain on the roof of the university building.
Yamagata prefecture is on the west coast of Japan, thought to be relatively less contaminated than east coast.(100km away from Fukushima plants)
Though it was measured one year ago, evacuation order has not been given out.
As a reference though this is not natural soil, comparing it with the contamination level in Belarus in the same way as this,
it’s 10 times higher than the mandatory evacuation limit.

United States Circumvented Laws To Help Japan Accumulate Tons of Plutonium by Joseph Trento, on April 9th, 2012
The United States deliberately allowed Japan access to the United States’ most secret nuclear weapons facilities while it transferred tens of billions of dollars worth of American tax paid research that has allowed Japan to amass 70 tons of weapons grade plutonium since the 1980s, a National Security News Service investigation reveals. These activities repeatedly violated U.S. laws regarding controls of sensitive nuclear materials that could be diverted to weapons programs in Japan. The NSNS investigation found that the United States has known about a secret nuclear weapons program in Japan since the 1960s, according to CIA reports.
President Reagan and Vice President Bush
The diversion of U.S. classified technology began during the Reagan administration after it allowed a $10 billion reactor sale to China. Japan protested that sensitive technology was being sold to a potential nuclear adversary. The Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations permitted sensitive technology and nuclear materials to be transferred to Japan despite laws and treaties preventing such transfers. Highly sensitive technology on plutonium separation from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site and Hanford nuclear weapons complex, as well as tens of billions of dollars worth of breeder reactor research was turned over to Japan with almost no safeguards against proliferation. Japanese scientist and technicians were given access to both Hanford and Savannah River as part of the transfer process.
While Japan has refrained from deploying nuclear weapons and remains under an umbrella of U.S. nuclear protection, NSNS has learned that the country has used its electrical utility companies as a cover to allow the country to amass enough nuclear weapons materials to build a nuclear arsenal larger than China, India and Pakistan combined.
This deliberate proliferation by the United States fuels arguments by countries like Iran that the original nuclear powers engage in proliferation despite treaty and internal legal obligations. Russia, France, Great Britain as well as the United States created civilian nuclear power industries around the world from their weapons complexes that amount to government-owned or subsidized industries. Israel, like Japan, has been a major beneficiary and, like Japan, has had nuclear weapons capabilities since the 1960s...[more Here]
2012-05-18 Namie machi bans reporting inside of the hazard area, Posted by Mochizuki, fukushima-diary.com, on May 18th, 2012 · 4 Comments
Namie machi in Hazard area bans internet streaming from the inside of the hazard area and taking mass media into the area.
Japanese government ordered to cull cattle inside of the hazard area last year, but Mr. Yoshizawa, an owner of the farm is still keeping 300 cattle.
Since last August, he was streaming the situation of his farm on the internet, but Namie machi started giving him the entering permission for the condition of banning publishing the situation on the internet and taking mass media into the zone. When he does it, he needs permission from Namie machi.
Namie machi local government states, it’s not the town, it’s Local nuclear disaster headquarters to have made the decision.
Lawyers of Mr. Yoshizawa protest against it to comment it’s nothing but the government’s censorship restricted by Japanese constitution.

Reactor 4 does not look like that anymore, in my opinion.
See it here covered with black goo.
The area where the spent fuel pool was seems to have collapsed into goo.
Of course, that is just my non-expert interpretation…

What-About-The-Kids
May 16, 2012 at 1:31 pm • Reply
Majia, the video you link to shows several workers there. I thought the assumption by most people, including experts like Arnie Gundersen, was that if the SFP4 were to collapse, the entire site (and Japan) would need to be evacuated.
Are you saying you believe the pool has collapsed, but people are still there?
Or are you just stating what you observe in the video, that it "looks" like its collapsed, but you are not sure? Just curious to hear your thoughts on this for clarification. Thanks!
Majia to What About the Kids
I understand your confusion.
The only explanation that makes sense to me is this:
[warning this is CONJECTURE] The recent picture of R4 may not be that recent, but I believe it is after a major (bad) event at R4.
I wonder whether the industrial light that was installed last fall (wish I could remember when) was a cover for a burning #4.
Late Nov and throughout Dec, we in the US southwest had MAJOR beta and gamma spikes in AZ and valley cities in CA, according to EPA Radnet.
[I made too much noise and they stopped reporting accurately: my opinion; or, the jet stream has been mostly north of us).
At any rate, I think something really bad happened last fall and it may very well have been #4.
So, it’s possible the picture was taken in Feb when the fire stopped or they contained it with goo before the current conditions evolved.
[Or it is possible workers were briefly staged or photo-shopped in]
But I don’t think there are many workers there now.
I think all hell is breaking out at the plant currently.
As you know, there have been very overt smoke/steam eruptions and flashes of intense light recently.
The plant has been bathed in an orange light and it has been shrouded in yellow fog.
No, I don't think there are many people there at all, perhaps none.
As I've mentioned before, I think the noise about spfp4 might in fact be a coded warning to the world that it has already happened and the plant is out of control.
It is possible that the much of the plant has been mostly uninhabited since March 2011, with only intermittent human activities in the immediate area of the reactors.
We know the cranes are remotely operated.
Maybe Tepco has staged most of the routine looking photos?
After watching the plant for over a year, I’ve seen captures of workers only a few times and they never look like the industrious, but relaxed workers in Tepco press releases.
Maybe Tepco just decided to “play” the people making the noise by releasing the recent images of workers by 4? “Oh yes,” Tepco implies with the photo, “spfp 4 remains a terrible threat but we have so far contained it…” grin, grin.
Only problem is the building looks destroyed and is covered in black goo.
Only problem is that currently Tepco and JNN-TBS webcams show that all hell is breaking out there now. I can see it. I can feel it.
Those strange flashes of light that are intensely powerful don’t look good to me. That yellow fog? Yikes. And then the orange glow. Woah! Plus lots of foggy steam and smoke erupting from the reactors on a more routine basis.
[Just my opinion.]
If I’m correct, there will be NO hiding this.
The recent propaganda about mice exposure to gamma radiation is alarming in this respect.
People who know what is going on are desperately trying to shape our attitudes now about the safety of radiation fallout.
They are even engaging in overtly erroneous extrapolations designed purely for the purposes of swaying public opinion....

Thanks, Majia. I do remember those spikes in late Nov. and Dec. Unfortunately, that was the time I was traveling by air quite a few times (to S. CA and the East Coast.) I could feel the radiation effects, my tongue tingling quite a bit, exhaustion, etc.
Then, the outbreak of the virulent respiratory illnesses and pneumonia followed in family and friends in late Winter/early Spring, and the stomach problems you've mentioned.
The huge worklight suddenly appearing is definitely suspect. Every time I'd see it in videos subsequently, I could see a tall stream of emissions spiking up above it, which obviously emanated from behind/below where the light had been placed.
So I think your suspicions about an out of control fire or recriticalities in the SFP4 there
may be correct. I don't believe the entire thing needs to necessarily "collapse" to do harm via intermittent or ongoing fires. It just may spread out that harm over a longer period of time.
I hope our conjecture is completely wrong and we are just overly concerned after having watched this entire Kafkaesque nightmare unfold for the past 14 months.
It sure would be nice to get some concrete answers, one way or another.
Fireguy Jeff
Some math….
Assuming 500 pounds of Pu in SFP4 got aerosolized
Using 454 grams per pound (never mind the mixed metric vs English system units) comes out to 227 thousand grams.
With the idea that a microgram (Dr Helen Caldicott) of ingested Pu will cause cancer (death implied) that is one million deaths per gram.
So SFP4 aerosolized could take out 227 billion people, or about 32 times the Earth's present population (7 billion as of March 2012).
32 is a bit off from thousands of times.
Yet my point here is all too similar to concerning ones self with how big the truck was that hit you and killed you.
A pound of Pu would have been a big problem.
An ounce of Pu would have been a big problem.
A gram of Pu would have been a big problem.
Maybe all of this is simply a deeply ironic case of natural selection…..
The species that figures out the nuclear effect and does not implement it gets to continue on, and the one that implements nuclear self exterminates.

You could look at it as a selection technique built into the universe itself. Any species good and wise enough to avoid the nuclear effect goes on to bigger and better things, and any species that succumbs to the nuclear effect becomes extinct. A protection mechanism. Why would advanced beings want a species stupid enough to embrace nuclear to be rocketing around the galaxy?

2012-05-19 Tokai, majiasblog.blogspot.com
Yesterday I was reading about the seeming paradox of Japan being a nation with extensive nuclear power infrastructures but no nuclear weapons.
I must say that there have been suspicious events in Japan's history that have called Japan's purported absence of a nuclear weapons system into question.
I am going to write briefly about those suspicions because they illuminate another issue that is currently ongoing in Japan, that is, the status of the Tokai nuclear reactors.
First of all here is a headline from 1988:
JAPAN'S NUCLEAR PROGRAM STRESSES BREEDERS, PLUTONIUM AND SAFEGUARDS..Authors:Sweet, William.
Source:Physics Today; Jan88, Vol. 41 Issue 1, p71-74, 4p.
[MAJIA HERE] Second, Japan processed its plutonium at Tokai. Despite processing its own plutonium, in the early 1990s Japan started purchasing and stockpiling plutonium from other countries. Below find an article that is critical of Japan's efforts to purchase plutonium from France and England and ship to the US
Takagi, Junzaburo & Nishio, Baku (1990). Japan’s Fake Plutonium Shortage. The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, 46(8), 34-38.
The article explains that the Japanese have no fuel shortage problem because they have been refining it for its “research reactor projects. Until now, the fuel has been produced mostly in the Tokai reprocessing plant, which began operating in 1977” (p. 34).
The authors were criticizing Japan for plans to receive shipments of plutonium from France and Britain. The shipments were scheduled to start in 1992 and would cost Japan 20 billion yen ($130 million) to ship.
[MAJIA HERE] Third, despite international criticism Japan continued on with its plans to purchase plutonium from half way around the world:
Article “Abandon Shipments” (1992, Oct).New Scientist;10 /10/92, Vol. 136 Issue 1842, p8
ABSTRACT" Reveals that renewed pressure has been levied against Japan for it to abandon its plan to ship 30 tons of plutonium from France to fuel its nuclear power program. First ton of fuel expected to be shipped later this year; Criticism by leaders and epresentitives of the Asia-Pacific Forum on Sea Shipments of Japanese Plutonium; Most Pacific nations appear reluctant to tackle Japan head-on.
http://connection.ebscohost.com/c/articles/9301103230/abandon-shipments
MAJIA HERE: the US allowed Japan to accumulate all this plutonium, despite significant accidents with the reprocessing and breeder reactors:
United States Circumvented Laws To Help Japan Accumulate Tons of Plutonium By Joseph Trento, on April 9th, 2012 National Security News Service http://www.dcbureau.org/201204097128/national-security-news-service/united-states-circumvented-laws-to-help-japan-accumulate-tons-of-plutonium.html
[Excerpt from Trento] "Thirty years ago even Japan’s harshest critics might have agreed that perhaps it could succeed where Western efforts had failed. But that optimism soon faded as a string of nuclear catastrophes demonstrated that nuclear industries are far different than any other. Both the Monju fast-breeder reactor in 1995 and the Tokai reprocessing plant in April 1997 suffered serious, accidental radiation leaks; both accidents were the subjects of attempted cover-ups. Most egregious was the fire and leak of radioactive sodium at the Monju FBR. Japan’s Power Reactor and Nuclear Fuel Development Corporation (PNC), the government corporation that operated Monju, lied repeatedly to the public about the accident. PNC attempted to suppress video footage that showed the cause of the accident: a ruptured pipe in a secondary cooling system that had spilled an estimated two to three tons of radioactive sodium – the largest such leak in the history of fast-breeder technology. One of the reasons PNC gave for releasing the misinformation was that Monju was too important to Japan’s energy program to jeopardize the reactor’s operation. In other words, the public’s safety was secondary to the breeder program."
[end excerpt]
MAJIA HERE: For these reasons, some believe that Japan actually does have a secret nuclear weapons program

U.S.-Japan security treaty fatally delayed nuclear workers' fight against meltdown

Yoichi Shimatsu who is Editor-at-large with the 4th Media is a Hong Kong–based environmental writer. He is the former editor of the Japan Times Weekly. This article is first appeared in the New American Media.
MAJIA HERE: Certainly, the stockpiling and processing of plutonium and the insistence on breeder reactors raises eyebrows. Japan's historic animosity with China provides the motive.
HOWEVER, even after setting aside speculation about whether Japan has a nuclear weapons program, we are left with an alarming situation at Tokai.
TOKAI is one of the reactors that has suffered damage. It is also the location for reprocessing of plutonium and has been for many years. This raises the question about what is really going on at Tokai?
[Alvarez 3/13/2011] “Meanwhile, Unit 2 of the Tokai nuclear complex, which is near Kyodo and just 75 miles north of Tokyo, is reported to have a coolant pump failure. And Japan's nuclear safety agency has declared a state of emergency at the Onagawa nuclear power plant in northeastern Japan because of high radiation levels.

MAJIA HERE: A few weeks ago someone posted a comment at Enenews warning about the status of the reactor at Tokai. The person warned that it could very well explode this summer and the explosion, if one occurs, would be visible from space.
On the one hand, this comment is purely speculative.
On the other hand, when one starts looking at the history of the reactors at Tokai one sees that history is deeply entwined with plutonium production, breeder reactors (which are inherently unstable) and, potentially, nuclear weapons development.
Perhaps there more nefarious reasons for all the secrecy about the true state of nuclear reactor conditions in Japan. . . . .

From 1987 to 2003, it has been experimented to cause plants mutation by radiation at Okinawa Prefectural Agricultural Research Center.
The purpose was to produce new kinds of rose (Samantha) for the market demand.
The result shows 52mSv/h caused triple-headed rose.
The rose was irradiated for 16 months per generation. Because this is not to know the lowest dose to cause variety of mutation, the sensitivity of rose is not known.
Also, the effect of internal exposure of plants is not known either.
The experiment took several generations to make the mutated features appear stably.

2012-05-13 Tritium in Swimming Pools, majiasblog.blogspot.com, Sunday, May 13, 2012
Capt. Clyde Stagner (Ret.) shared with me a letter he wrote to the Maricopa Association of Governments and the EPA
Capt. Stagner is very concerned about the lack of monitoring of tritium emitted from Palo Verde Nuclear Plant.
The only tritium monitoring in Phoenix is in drinking water.
[CORRECTION to original post: Apparently the EPA doesn't even do that: Clyde corrects me here: "ALTHOUGH THE EPA COULD MONITOR Phoenix 's drinking water for tritium,the EPA does not do so. This is frustrating because of the local airborne releases of tritium verified by the EPA's measurements of tritium in Phoenix 's precipitation. An EPA Rep stated That the EPA didn't have the funds to monitor Phoenix 's drinking water for tritium."]
There is no monitoring of it in our air or precipitation (or water!)
Unfortunately, tritium can contaminate both air and water.
I am going to include below some excerpts from Capt Stagner's analysis.
"Tritium is a radioactive contaminant with a half life of 12.32 years and emits a low energy beta particle. Tritium, emitted as a gas, combines with oxygen to form tritium oxide, or tritium water... Tritium cannot be removed through filtering."
Tritium can be absorbed through the skin (or inhaled or ingested).
MAJIA HERE: I am going to interject here a finding about body's absorption of tritium from a research article on internal emitters:
"low energy beta emissions from tritium (3H) decay have been shown to have RBE (ratio of the absorbed dose) values of up to between 2 and 3 (compared to gammay rays), for in vitro end-points including cell killing, mutation and induction of chromosomal aberrations" (p. 144)
Harrison, J., & Day, P. (2008). Radiation Doses and Risks from Internal Emitters. Journal of Radiological Protection, 28, 37-159.
MAJIA HERE: I'll provide some more sources for the unpleasant effects of tritium at the end of this post but now back to Capt. Stagner's letter:
[paraphrasing] Capt. Stagner notes that the EPA assessed tritium concentrations in Phoenix precipitation from March 1985 to December 2010. The EPA has since stopped collecting and analyzing tritium in Phoenix precipitation.
The EPA HAS PROVIDED NO REASON FOR CEASING TO MONITOR TRITIUM IN PHOENIX PRECIPITATION.
Using EPA data from 2010, Capt Stagner extrapolated the probable tritium concentrations in Phoenix precipitation.
Using data about probable concentrations of tritium in precipitation, Capt. Stagner has calculated the probable concentration of tritium in swimming pools in the Phoenix area, based on the volume of water.
He writes: "Swimming 2 hours a day during a six month swimming season results in a dose of .... 1.927 millirem. Swimming 2 hours a day annually results in a dose of 3.908 millirem."
He concludes: "The latter dose exceeds the ALARA OF 3 MILLIREM"
[ALARA stands for As Low as Reasonably Achievable and is a regulatory requirement. See http://www.ncsu.edu/ehs/radiation/forms/alara.pdf for background]
MAJIA HERE: The data above only concern exposure to tritium through swimming in pools. We spend a lot of time in swimming pools in Phoenix in the summer because it is so hot. Kids, especially, are in the pool a LOT during the summer.
However, swimming pools are not our only source for exposure to tritium.
It is clear that we inhale tritium in the humidity in Phoenix air (mostly late summer when it is very hot and relatively humid) and we no doubt ingest tritium through our food.
Tritium can be absorbed by plants and Capt Stagner notes in a personal email to me that Phoenix reclaims water that may be contaminated with tritium. Also, tritium may contaminate sludge used on land (as fertilizer?)
Text of email from Capt. Stagner regarding tritium contamination of wastewater and sludge:
More than 90% of Phoenix wastewater is highly treated and reused for crops,power generation(utility), and turf irrigation(Ref:Phoenix Water and Wastewater Facts)
Part of effluent from two major sewage treatment plants in the Phoenix area, both activated sludge plants with chlorination (Ref:FAO Corpoate Document Repository).
As of March 31,2004,ADEQ serves as the sewage sludge program and enforcement authority in Arizona. EPA maintains an oversight.Bisolids(Another name for sludge)Program is regulated under 18 AAC title 10. Persons using biosolids for land application must register with ADEQ.
AZ Dept of Health Services must approve and certify list of laboratories to test biosolids. Their application, Section C-Solid waste Methods,pages 33-41 includes the following listed under Radiochemistry Tests required are: Alpha emitting Radium, Gross Alpha and Beta,and Radium 228.
Tritium is not listed: its beta particle is low energy.
This application also lists Wastewater radiation tests of:Gross alpha, Gross Beta,Radium total,and radium 228-tritium is not listed.This license laboratory application also lists Drinking Water which includes tritium,Page 2
In researching utility radiation reports to NRC, a container of incoming treated water for cooling water was noted as contaminated with tritium. This memory observation needs to be verified before citation as recycled tritium is concluded
In addition,the 40 reservoirs of Phoenix Water require evaluation for possible tritium contamination.
The best-clyde
MAJIA HERE: The upshot is that we in Phoenix are swimming in tritium and no doubt ingesting it through other means as well.
Tritium is nasty and its biological hazard from absorption is greater than comparable levels of exposure from gamma.
The EPA is not monitoring tritium in our precipitation, which contaminates our air, our pools, and, potentially, our agriculture.

New York Times Trumpets "Fall-Out Effects Gone in 6 Months: 5 Navy Doctors Tell AMA" After "Accidental" Contamination of Marshall Islands
FALL-OUT EFFECTS GONE IN 6 MONTHS: 5 NAVY DOCTORS TELL A.M.A. 1954 PACIFIC BLAST CAUSED MAINLY SKIN DAMAGE by ROBERT K. PLUMB Special to The New York Times.. New York Times (1923-Current file) [New York, N.Y] 09 June 195
The lead paragraph reads as follows:
[excerpt] "Persons accidently showered with radioactive fallout in the nuclear detonation in the Pacific on March 1, 1954 recovered in six months from their major ailment—skin damage." [end excerpt]
The article addressed the “accidental” fallout contamination of people in the Marshall Islands. The article explained that
[excerpt] “heavy fall-out eight after the detonation showered sixty-four Marshallese with particles having, according to later calculations, a radioactive level of 175 roentgen units. Exposure for a short time to doses about 400 roetengens is believed to be lethal for man.” [end excerpt]
Other Marshallese were also exposed to high levels.
However, as heralded in the title to the article, Navy doctors reported at the American Medical Association meeting that those impacted recovered. Full recovery seems somewhat amazing given the fallout reportedly “whitened the hair of victims,” caused nausea, diarrhea, itching and burning skin, watery eyes, hair loss, widespread skin lesions, and blood changes that lasted as long as six months.
At the close, the article did acknowledge that “Children appeared to be slightly more sensitive to radiation than adults, it was suggested.”
Despite this “mishap,” the United Nations upheld the U.S. “right” to conduct hydrogen bomb testing in the Pacific. The petition brought forward by the Marshallese that testing be stopped was disregarded.
Although the Marshallese were considered fully recovered from exposures of up to 400 roentgens after six months, the U.S. National Radiation Protection Agency recommended that nuclear plant workers’ exposure limit be set at a maximum of three-tenths of a roentgen.
Prof. G. Hoyt Whipple, a pathologist, was quoted by The New York Times as recommending that figure be reduced to three-hundredths of a roentgen because animal experiments showed that the three-tenths dosage would shorten human life expectancy by ten percent over thirty years.
Prof Whipple cautioned that the children of people exposed and their succeeding generations were at risk from genetic mutations. He was quoted as stating that the problem “is one of conservation—conservation of the human race if you will.”

We know from our history, as documented above, that the symptoms of radiation poisoning will be denied and trivialized to protect the nuclear-industrial-government complex.

ALERT! Radioactive Fallout Identified In and On US Ground Beef, Saturday, May 19, 2012
The POTRBLO
G team spent $1,100 dollars to have US ground beef tested by professional labs for radioactive contamination from Plutonium, Strontium, and Gamma producing radionuclides. The ground beef samples tested were from a grass fed cow which went to the butcher in July of 2011; the radioactive testing occurred during the first week of May 2012.
The ground beef sample returned readings showing that the cow had ingested radioactive fallout. The sample also had readings which point to a recent nuclear fission and control rod fire occurring within the last few weeks. The results of that testing are presented in the video below.
As it stands now, we still have available PRE-Fukushima all natural, grass fed beef, and pasture raised pork for testing. We know exactly how, where and by whom the beef, and pork were humanely raised. We also have access to fresh beef, pork, and chicken raised under the same conditions.
Our goal is to independently and accurately determine what the true risk the populace faces from Fukushima fallout contaminating the food supply. We also believe we will be able to identify specific farm conditions that will allow you to pick food sources which have the lowest reasonable contamination risk.

Alexander, It looks like something happened and the EPA did something, because this has not been updated for a while. It stopped updating on May 18th. I thought I would let you know. I think you are genius to come up with this, and it truly is a great service to us all.

Site’s still frozen, and they seem to be having a nuclear meltdown in Indiana. When will this site resume, and will they record the spike they had yesterday?
