Holy Fukushima – Radiation From Japan Is Already Killing North Americans

You’re going to want to use every share button at the bottom of this article once you’re done reading, so get ready, it’s time to freak out:  Maybe.

If you live on the west coast of Canada or the United States, you’re pretty much already screwed at this point thanks to the Japanese earthquake and tsunami of 2011.  Radiation levels are already increasing in the food and water, babies born with thyroid issues linked to radiation are rising quickly and governments in Canada and the United States are raising the “acceptable levels” of certain toxic substances in the food being shipped in from Japan.

Holy Fukushima – Radiation From Japan Is Already Killing North Americans

This isn’t a conspiracy theory, this is happening and it’s happening right now.

The fancy little picture at the top of the article isn’t showing you the flow of happy fun time thoughts from Japan back in March of 2012, it’s showing you the flow of radiation from the Fukushima nuclear plant after the devastating earthquake and tsunami of 2011.  Yes, that sharp pain you just felt in your chest is the sudden realization that the image shows the radiation reaching almost past Hawaii more than a year ago.

Do the math – If that radiation screamed across the Pacific Ocean that far in one year, just how far do you think it has gotten since then?  Look at what World Truth TV is saying and then you decide.

Samples of milk taken across the United States have shown radiation at levels 2000 percent higher than EPA maximums.  The reason that milk is so significant is that it is representative of the entire food supply.  According to an article published on Natural News, “Cows consume grass and are exposed to the same elements as food crops and water supplies. In other words, when cows’ milk starts testing positive for high levels of radioactive elements, this is indicative of radioactive contamination of the entire food supply.”

The  Food and Drug  Administration and the Environmental Deception Protection Agency, instead of refusing to prohibit the sale of tainted foods and mandatory testing of foods produced and harvested from the Pacific Coast, have simply raised the “acceptable levels”  of radioactive material in foods.

If that doesn’t scare the ever-living crap out of you, then take a look at the list of foods you are now supposed to be wary of, you know, for only the next 30,000 years.

How can we protect ourselves? First, be aware of what items are likely to be highly tainted.

1.)  SEAFOOD:  Question the origin of ALL seafood.  Fish and crustaceans from the Pacific Ocean should all be considered to be poisoned with radiation.

2.)  WATER:  The rainfall and snowfall are all radiated.  Do not drink any water that has not been filtered.   The tap water that flows from your faucet has NOT been treated to rid it of radioactive particles. A recent report from the NY Times stated, “A rooftop water monitoring program managed by UC Berkeley’s Department of Nuclear Engineering detected substantial spikes in rain-borne iodine-131 during torrential downpours …

3.) DAIRY PRODUCTS:  Milk and milk products from the West Coast states currently have the highest levels of radiation in North America.

4.)  PRODUCE:  Leafy Vegetables, Wines, Tomatoes, Strawberries….all produce from California or any other West Coast State are also likely to be tainted.

5.)  MEAT:  If an animal eats any leafy vegetable all along the West Coast, that animal has consumed radiation, and is poisoned.  This is any animal from cows, pigs, goats, sheep to wild deer and other game.

If you eat the above foods from areas with high radiation levels, you are eating radiation and feeding it to your children. Slowly the radiation levels within your body will build up.  This is PERMANENT.

Infant mortality rates across the United States have increased by more than 35% since the nuclear disaster, according to a court statement by Dr. Sherman with independent scientist Leuren Moret, MA, PhD.  A study published in The International Journal of Medicine indicates that more than 20,000 deaths right here in North America can be directly attributed to the release of radioactive material from Fukushima.

Radioactive isotopes of the type released from Fukushima have a half-life of 30,000 years.  This means that we must permanently change the way we prepare our food.

  • Wash your food with soap and rinse it in filtered water. 
  • Be aware of the origins of your vegetables, fish, game and seafood.
  • Keep abreast of radiation levels to help monitor where your food is acquired.
  • Use only filtered water for drinking, cooking and ice.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but that one way trip to colonize Mars is looking pretty damn attractive right now.

    Revelation eight (8) states that one third (1/3) of life in the oceans would die in a plague. The Pacific Ocean is one third of all water on earth. I wonder if this could eventually end up being the fulfillment of Bible prophecy?

    This is a hidden disaster that is slowly coming to light. Fukushima has the capacity to being one of the worsr disasters of all time. Give it time.

    The article is valid in a broad perspective. For example, military nuclear training does indicate the avoidance provisions of this article. My trail to this article came from the recent and mysterious development of reduced lung capacity in a recent college graduate in the North East US. The impact of radon on the lungs of US citizens has been studied.

    Add the atmospheric fallout of Fukishima. The NOAA water chart is also a fact. Grim as it may be. The uplift of radiation into a typhoon allows the radiation to be introduced into the jet stream in the upper atmosphere. That brings it to the US, particularly the West Coast where it is washed out in precipitation.

    Are we experiencing a “Nuclear Winter” in 2013 and 2014? The Nuclear Winter also was predicted in US Military training following nuclear fall out warfare planning.

    To close, I had the opportunity to meet Harry Kuni. Harry walked on the open air nuclear testing site in Nevada in a lead suit to collect samples buried in the sand that contained seafood. Obviously he did this following the testing for the bomb used in WWII. He lived to be 96. He did not die of cancer.

    For the nay sayers, not all will suffer the consequences of Fukishima. But as cancer rates show, it will get far more of us now that world governments failed to plan accordingly in the Nuclear realm.

    I agree with all of this except. Wash your fruit & vegetables with soap??!?! Soap is pure chemicals the last thing you want to do is bathe your food in chemicals. Instead wash fruit & vegetables by soaking them in apple cider vinegar & filtered water. NOT SOAP.

    I work in a nuclear plant & filtered water is not filtered for radiation. The only radiation is will remove is particulate, and that would still leave the water with some level of radiation.

    They cover the news stories on the radiation levels but what about the damn chemtrials they are spraying on us everyday. That right there alone is making everyone sick. Statistics have rising of people having upper respiratory issues and being diagnosed with crap that they have never had in their lifetime (ie; bronchitis). What about the foods from over seas that they help chemical engineer ingredients to give people cancer or just make them sick so BIG PHARMA can stay in business and push their drugs.

      So no, I don’t only get my information from government mandated textbooks and government paid professors that are apparently feeding us incorrect information (this is sarcastic, most textbooks and professors, government mandated or not, ARE providing accurate information) to hide the “truth”

      Do I consider myself a scientist? Probably not, at least not by profession. I do, however, know enough science to tell you why all of this is bullshit.

    PEOPLE! You all need to understand a few simple things. “International Journal of Health Services” is not a credible journal. It’s not indexed in Pubmed – the leading index of medical and scientific literature – and it’s not indexed in the Journal Citation Reports. The JCR analyzes, indexes, and ranks 8,471 medical and scientific journals. The IJHS is NOT ONE OF THEM. Therefore the “data” included in there is not credible. I’m a scientist. I also study ionizing radiation induced DNA repair. I know a little bit about science, publishing, and radiation biology (and this whole article written by an ignorant hack is utter bullshit). There are probably fewer than 200 journals I would consider reputable places to publish research. If it’s not ranked in over 8,000 journals then that is all that really needs to be said about its credibility. So, what’s in the the article is irrelevant. A blog post is of indistinguishable quality relative to this garbage article. Now, the authors run the Radiation and Public Health Project which has close to zero credibility among radiation scientists. And the authors of this “research” are not considered credible scholars. The only paper they’ve published on this topic that is indexed in Pubmed (found here http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22403909) was in the “International Journal of Health Services” which, by all measure from the JCR is a very low-impact journal of very low scholarly quality. The article itself was roundly criticized in responses published in the same journal. In other words, they aren’t credible, there work isn’t credible, and they’re publishing it in non-credible sources.

    First of all, if you people are so worried about radiation exposure, get yourself a geiger counter and check the levels for yourself. This isn’t some kind of mystery. There are plenty of private organizations monitoring radiation levels on the west coast that would have been on top of this the second radiation exposure increased above background levels. The government doesn’t run everything. It is true that some radioactive material (dust of radioactive isotopes, not just “radiation”) made it over the pacific, but this is old news, and has not, and will not cause any problems for us. You would likely get a higher dose of ionizing radiation by taking a plane ride or two than you would in a year of living on the coast for a year. You are being exposed to small amounts of ionizing radiation (electromagnetic) by looking at your computer right now. Old TV screens are even worse. Radiation is everywhere. Even bananas are slightly radioactive (potassium isotopes). Yet, none of this is going to give you cancer or make an arm grow out of your fucking face.

    Also, on that “one way trip to mars” you speak of, you would receive a higher dose of cosmic radiation than you would from any of this bullshit. Do your homework before trying to stir up controversy with this conspiracy theorist crap.

    And by the way, for those of you hearing anything about “china syndrome,” (mentioned in another article) realize that this is a fake, completely made up idea that was invented in a hollywood movie. Radioactive materials can’t just fall into the earth and irradiate everyone on the planet. That is truly one of the stupidest ideas I have ever heard, and it sickens me that anyone would believe this.

    • Duncan January 8, 2014 at 11:54 pm - Reply

      This is a good site to keep track of readings. I assume the one case scenario where we would start worrying is if there is an explosion releasing massive quantities of radiation into the air, which this website would show quite quickly. As these readings all continue to be normal I assume other than taking preparations like emergency supplies, iodine pills stocked, etc., there isn’t much else to do. There is lots of help going on over there at the moment. Is it really wise though to support any further nuclear stations being developed in regions like this?

      • Alex Sulyman January 24, 2014 at 11:47 am - Reply

        Ignorant shit? This is not an opinion buddy, simply stating scientific facts. Feel free to cross reference anything I say with a reliable source. I’m not one to make things up.

        Let me tell you a FEW of the reasons China Syndrome is simply fiction:

        First of all, the reactor core (now corium “lava”) would first need to make it through feet thick of concrete (which would eventually happen) and once it makes it through, the corium would likely dissipate into the soil penetrating not even 1% in depth into the earth’s crust before it cools down and solidifies.

        Let’s say it somehow did not cool down and progressed towards the core of the earth. Well, the core of our earth is FULL of uranium. Thousands of tons of it. In fact, the core of our earth is essentially one huge nuclear fission reactor (georeactor). The heat produced by these reactions is actually what keeps the center of the earth so hot.

        Also, simple physics tells us that the reactor core (which would have mixed with all of the other materials in the earth’s core by now) would stop at the center of the earth, and simply remain at rest there for the rest of eternity. This is because the net gravitational force at the center of mass of the earth (which is somewhat near the geometrical center of the earth) is zero. So, there is no way that it could make it all the way to china (hence the name) because the nuclear material would just sit in the middle of the earth along with the (and I do emphasize this) THOUSANDS of tons of radioactive Uranium, Thorium, Potassium, and other isotopes that are necessary to support life on earth.

        So to answer anyone’s question, no, China Syndrome is a complete bullshit theory. I wouldn’t even call it a theory, sounds more like a joke to me. A dumb joke.

        • JackDean January 24, 2014 at 11:35 pm - Reply

          Nice, your definition of the China Syndrome is completely ridiculous.
          What a fantastical strawman!

          All the China Syndrome says is that the corium will sink until it reaches the water table and may cause a steam explosion.

          High temperatures destroy concrete, so it won’t be much of a barrier to the corium.
          Add the highly corrosive saltwater bath that’s being sued to cool the reactors and the steel and concrete doesn’t have a chance.

          • Alex Sulyman January 28, 2014 at 2:37 pm -

            My definition is completely ridiculous? Apparently I am not well informed on FICTIONAL nuclear meltdown scenarios…sorry about that. But in all seriousness, I apologize if your definition of China Syndrome is different, I was just going by the definition that the name implies, which I hope most find pretty far fetched…If you want to point me to a reliable source describing China Syndrome, that would be great, I am genuinely interested. Seems that my online research has pointed me to the definition that I have described.

            What you are describing sounds just like nuclear contamination to me, which of course is entirely possible. The steam explosion part? I personally have never heard of it, and it does sound somewhat possible, so I will not question it’s validity (nor will I accept it).

            And yes concrete does break down under heat, however, provided that the concrete is thick enough, the concrete will provide fantastic protection against the corium until it finally (if it even reaches this far) reaches the soil, where it will likely disperse and solidify. Contamination to underground water? Very possible. Steam explosions? Again, possible, but doesn’t sound terribly likely to me.

    All this is not really new news or that shocking. If you know anything about Nuclear power dangers then this is expected…Also it’s not the Japanese fault. They didn’t cause the 9.0 quake, yet I hate how the article implies that the Japanese are killing Americans.

    To the writer: You know that WWII has been over for a few decades right? And that the US and Japanese have peace treaties? Because honestly the title and the beginning content is rather insulting.

    Also while this was horrible event , nothing, NOTHING could of withstood that tsunami.
    No matter if the plant had been brand new, in tip top shape, made by the US, Japan, China or Russia, there would of been a problem. Proof: Water (not sea water which is slightly heavier and denser) weights 62.42lb per cubic foot. The tsunami of 2011 reached as high as 128ft-133ft depending where you look. But if you dropped 1′x1′x128′ of water; the area below it would be hit with around 7989lb*ft/s^2. And this is only counting for a small slice (1′x1′x128′) of a tsunami that was many many feet wide and deep. A tsunami that had enough force to travel 6 miles inland and destroy/damaged over 1 million buildings. And Fukushima was pretty much right in the front of it.

    Many nations have Nuclear Power Plants by the ocean or large rivers and lakes. This is because the water is needed for cooling the nuclear reactors that run around 300*C. That I think is a more major issue that should be addressed- “alternative ways to cool a nuclear reactor”- so that if it leak, it’s not into a water source.
    Or perhaps “ways to clean up radiation” would be another good topic- get attention onto that instead of – “Oh my God the Japanese, I mean Fukushima poisoned everything!”

    All my sources are credible and if you want I can any site any of the sources I used for the information above.

    The only way to avoid radiation through water is distilled water. Regular filtration absolutely does not rid of radioactive material.

    That’s doesn’t get rid of tritium….

    The drinking limit of tritium is really high at 20,00 pCi/L and it removes itself after about 30 days and has a very low gamma emission.
    I bet you having fun trolling the people on this site since you feel the need to post about everything and your facts may have some scientific backing they are completely biased and skewed.
    And on that note this article is absurd and hilarious to read.
    And yes people bananas have radioactive material in them, K-40, which is naturally occurring and has been since before we knew about radiation.

    Tritium is chemically lethal to dividing cells. And it is mutagenic. Because of the extra neutrons, the out electrons are pushed outwards and the element is much more chemically active than normal hydrogen. And as to the body ridding itself of tritium in 30 days, that assumes you don’t keep eating in your food. The concentration in the body follows a log curve. And I would guess that 30 days is the biological half life of tritium. the time it takes the body expel half of it. the body doesn’t rid itself of anything in finite amount of time, so your statement doesn’t make sense.

    You folks are so hung up on the radiation, you ignore the fact that most of these compounds are heavy metals that cause extensive chemical and mutagenic damage on their own.

    I bet you having fun trolling the people on this site since you feel the need to post about everything and your facts may have some scientific backing they are completely biased and skewed.

    So you accept that science is valid, but you just don’t like it.

    I can understand that.

      You’ve made the very clear and direct assumption that the more than 300 tons on 1.1 million bcq / liter water that flows out of Fukushima every day is evenly diluted throughout the pacific ocean.

      You’ve repeated that directly implied assumption in your recent reply.

      This is a deceptive and misleading assumption.

    PEOPLE! You all need to understand a few simple things. “International Journal of Health Services” is not a credible journal. It’s not indexed in Pubmed – the leading index of medical and scientific literature – and it’s not indexed in the Journal Citation Reports. The JCR analyzes, indexes, and ranks 8,471 medical and scientific journals. The IJHS is NOT ONE OF THEM. Therefore the “data” included in there is not credible. I’m a scientist. I also study ionizing radiation induced DNA repair. I know a little bit about science, publishing, and radiation biology (and this whole article written by an ignorant hack is utter bullshit). There are probably fewer than 200 journals I would consider reputable places to publish research. If it’s not ranked in over 8,000 journals then that is all that really needs to be said about its credibility. So, what’s in the the article is irrelevant. A blog post is of indistinguishable quality relative to this garbage article. Now, the authors run the Radiation and Public Health Project which has close to zero credibility among radiation scientists. And the authors of this “research” are not considered credible scholars. The only paper they’ve published on this topic that is indexed in Pubmed (found here http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22403909) was in the “International Journal of Health Services” which, by all measure from the JCR is a very low-impact journal of very low scholarly quality. The article itself was roundly criticized in responses published in the same journal. In other words, they aren’t credible, there work isn’t credible, and they’re publishing it in non-credible sources.

    Utter, utter bullshit. You could dump the ENTIRE REACTOR COMPLEX into the Pacific Ocean and the amount of radiation it would add to the ocean as a whole would be utterly irrelevant to your health.

    DILUTION, people. It means something. The oceans are HUGE. The calculations done by people who actually KNOW what radiation is and what it does shows that Fukushima isn’t even going to significantly raise the amount of radiation in the fish at any reasonable range from the reactor. The BEACHES not far from Fukushima are still reasonably safe to swim in.

    Understand the scale you’re looking at. “Thousands of gallons” of radioactive water” sounds real scary, until you understand that (A) 90%+ of that water is still just ordinary water, it’s just mixed with radioactive stuff, and (B) that it isn’t a drop in a bucket, but a drop into a thousand Olympic-sized swimming pools. A thousand gallons is about four cubic meters of liquid. You’re dumping into THE PACIFIC OCEAN. An ocean thousands of kilometers across, with an average depth of four THOUSAND meters — four kilometers. ONE cubic kilometer is a BILLION cubic meters, or diluting a thousand gallons by a factor of about two hundred and fifty MILLION. And the total volume of the Pacific is over one hundred sixty MILLION cubic kilometers.

    This is roughly like finding out someone farted in California and being afraid you’ll smell it in New York City. You’re in more danger from the radiation in that bunch of bananas on the counter than you ever will be from Fukushima, unless you go on a tour group into the reactor.

      Ryk you are an ignorant ass. If you think you can dump millions of TONS of contaminated water into the ocean every day for more than a year, with no ill effects, you sir are an asshole with no knowledge of the ocean and your post should be deleted out of stupidity alone. Any person on here defending the Fukashima fallout and radioactive contamination, either has an interest in the cover up, or is just blind and ill-informed. Japan has literally destroyed humanities chance at a radiation safe world. Nuclear reactors are the stupidest form of power in the world. Such a shame. Argue if you will, but only time will be the truth. I hope for humanities sake, it is all untrue and we really live in some fantasy hologram where everything will be ok, but I have my doubts about that one.

      That of course assumes that we can ignore the biology of the oceans.

      If we had a dead planet in which life did not actively concentrate these isotopes as if they were nutrients, then this would be a completely accurate way to view this.

      But we do have plankton actively seeking out an absorbing the radioactive salts, because they chemically resemble nutrients that the plankton has evolved to absorb as nutrients.

      This is why the dilution argument doesn’t fit.

      • Ryk E. Spoor January 8, 2014 at 12:03 am - Reply

        Actually, it still applies. The radioactive material has to REACH the plankton to be absorbed. So the plankton that eats the radioactive material will be similarly widely distributed, and while they concentrate the radioactives, well, again, DO THE MATH. They can’t concentrate it enough to make it a threat outside of the immediate area; the really dangerous amounts of radiation also decay fairly quickly (and that happens just as much inside the plankton as outside). THERE IS ALREADY VASTLY MORE RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL IN THE OCEAN than Fukushima has, or ever could, put into it. VASTLY more. If it was that dangerously concentrated by plankton, we’d already all be dead.

        As far as the heavy metals, again, do the math. The amount of heavy metals *already* present in the ocean is orders of magnitude greater than the entire Fukushima plant has in it — construction materials and all.

        This is a matter of *scale*. You have to grasp just how tiny, tiny, tiny Fukushima, or indeed any individual human construction, is on the scale of the Earth and even its biosphere. Our effect on the climate, for instance, doesn’t come from one, two, or even a hundred coal-fired plants, but from THOUSANDS upon thousands of them operating 24/7 around the world, dumping millions of tons of waste into the atmosphere. And even then, the effect is small enough so far that people can argue themselves into thinking it isn’t there.

        One industrial accident simply isn’t that dangerous on a planetary scale (and if you want something in Japan to affect the US, you’re talking planetary scale).

        It IS how it works, actually. Fish (A) don’t move around THAT much in general, and (B) radiation DECAYS. The high-level stuff decays in months or a few years.

        More importantly, there isn’t that much radiation involved once you’re not right on top of the reactor. Dilution, dilution, dilution.

    Humans should have never been dealing with nuclear energy, we are not advanced enough for it. If there is no way to neutralize it for 80,000 years, we should have never been using it in the first place. What a nasty thing to do to future generations! If there are any after this extinction level event, of course.

    • An Engineer January 8, 2014 at 6:05 am - Reply

      Yea, humans are still a stupid race. However we stupid people demand a thing called electrical energy. You need it for your phone. My great-grandmother needs it for her pace-maker. Bob over there needs it for life-support and I need it for my online games. We can’t get enough power through coal (not to mention the long term affects of coal are just as bad as nuclear ones….) so we have to look at other ways to produce power. If you take the same amount of coal to uranium – say 1 gram of each – that amount of uranium produces 3.7million times more power. So power produced by 1 gram of uranium = power produced by 8,157lbs of coal.
      And “an extinction level event”? Really? While humans and wild-life did suffer this is not a “extinction level event”. An “extinction level event” would be if half or more the planet was dead.

    Oh my, I’m sorry that you are not well versed in how radiation works, Jeromie. I am also sorry that you are so easily susceptible to all these fake “information” sites that popped up soon after this disaster. Is your mind so easily swayed? If so, you need to step back and think about the kind of person that you are. Spreading rhetoric and lies makes one a terrible person. There has been absolutely no related deaths due to the fukushima disaster in the USA. I dare you to find one case from a CREDIBLE, and well established source of information. This comes from the CDC themselves. It took me all of 30 seconds to find it.

    “Do the nuclear reactors in Japan currently pose a risk to workers in the U.S. and its Territories?

    The NRC has indicated that all the available information continues to indicate Hawaii, Alaska, the U.S. Territories and the U.S. West Coast are not expected to experience any harmful levels of radioactivity. In theory, the primary issue of potential exposure would be from residual radioactive dust particles in the air (“fallout”) dispersed by atmospheric winds across the ocean. It is unlikely that the fallout will be detectable in the U.S or territories except by air sampling and analytic methods capable of detecting background levels (and thus capable of finding even small but not harmful increases above background levels).”

    ACTUAL SOURCE: http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/radiation/WorkerInfo.html

    It’s funny how the link to the “International Journal of Medicine” links to a private site that does not link any credible source of information. Perhaps you are doing this to make money? What a crappy way to make money.
