CBS L.A., May 29, 2017 (emphasis added): Hundreds Of Sick, Dying Seabirds, Seals Found On Shores Of Ventura, Santa Barbara Counties… Elaine Ibarra, who works with the Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network, estimated hundreds of pelicans and loons have died… she has never seen so many. “They’re very stressed out, and it is really hard to see something have a seizure and know there’s very little that you can do to help,” the animal care coordinator explained… Kyle Cory often walks on Silver Strand beach and sees the ill sea birds all the time. “I can see anywhere between 6 and 12 every walk. So there’s something going on,” he said. “It’s affected me in a bad way because it’s just not good to see on the beach.” He said he will keep documenting the dead wildlife he sees, hoping it’ll somehow help. “How many have to die before somebody cares?” he asked.

CBS L.A. transcript, May 29, 2017: “A disturbing trend off our Southern California shores… Hundreds of dead pelicans and other sea birds are washing up on local beaches.”

Huffington Post, May 31, 2017: Since at least April, dying marine animals and birds have been washing up en masse on the shores of Southern California’s beaches… sick or dead sea lions… loons, pelicans and even dolphins had also been found.

CBS 8, May 30, 2017: It’s become an alarming sight along the Southern California coastline. Wildlife experts report that it’s normal to see some dead wildlife this time of year, but they’ve never seen this many sick birds… The dead pelicans and loons can be seen up and down the coast… “That could be from temperature, runoff, we’ve had a lot of rain this year, so some people are speculating that it might have to do with the runoff into the water,” said Ibarra…

CBS 8 transcript, May 30, 2017: “Something in the water is causing a massive die-off along Southern California beaches. Dead and sick seabirds and seals are washing up from San Diego to Santa Barbara… It’s definitely an alarming sight to see… [Wildlife experts] haven’t seen quite so many sick birds before… The number of sick birds out there is extremely high… Experts are not sure of the exact cause of death.”

  • LOL, I just finished this summary on another blog, and came back to a fresh article, very topical.

    Well here is some stuff that will rock your world.

    Krill off gas elements that cause cloud nucleation. Strong sun hurts krill, so its a protective effect. Clouds mean cooler temperatures.

    Krill use a tough biological structure called Chitin. Chitin absorbs man-made radiation at rates of 200 to 20,000 background levels. Radiation destroys the bonds that make Chitin a useful structure.

    So even "low" levels of man-made radionuclides, can bio-magnify and kill the krill, meaning less clouds, and hotter temperatures. Incidentally the krill sink pretty quickly, taking the radiation to Davy Jones Locker.

    Obviously we had an el Nino, but on top of that we had the progression of Fukushima fallout and continued releases into the Pacific, a so called "blob" of radiation as measured by Woods Hole Oceangraphic Institute, which moved pretty in line with the hottest of the blobs. This radiation/krill/cloud heating event superimposed on top of the El Nino.

    We saw the results with half the whales gone from Hawaii in 2016 and I participated in the 2017 NOAA whale count, but haven't reviewed their synopsis, not sure if it is completed. And of course on the West Coast, the mass die-offs should be readily apparent to anyone not living under a rock. One main basis of the ocean food chain, the krill, have been toasted by radiation.

    NOAA in 2016,…

    • NOAA in 2016, under direction from top government to push for the Paris Climate Scam, blamed the die-offs on domoic acid, even though the test results clearly show that only 1 to 3% were caused by domoic acid.

      This is the world that we live in. stock out

      Certainly Fukushima has played a warming/death role as has been discussed in length..right here! 🙂

      http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/16/wes-coast-krill_n_3606349.html

      Krill are actually cleaning the ocean for us. How do we know this for sure? A scientific review of the 2 main isotopes of Cesium, CS-134 and CS-137 proves how this is happening. The details are in the link below, and a quick summary, the CS-134 is 15 times more radioactive, the krill that absorb the CS-134 are killed more quickly and sink to the bottom. So you would expect to find less CS-134 in the water. And science does show exactly that.

        cant wait until you realize the other part of the story stock. The chitin acts like an ion exchange resin…and the radiation CAN break down the chitin,

        BUT there is a whole other path of influence. The chitin machinery is right there on the cell wall, and several things have been discovered which influence morphogenesis…which limb goes where…which microtubule in the cell cytoskeleton goes which way…among which influence is the ionic gradient and the voltage gradient. So EVEN IF the chitin is not degraded significantly, or if its consumed by a non chitin based animal…it still forms a hot spot of ionic and voltage gradient which can interfere with morphogensis on the macro and micro scale. Indeed, ion gradients and flow is a large factor in biochemical process and morphogenisis. Needless to say this is a deforming potential not directly related to DNA breaks. In fact has been found that organisms can select for different isotopes; "it is thought that accumulation of radionuclide elements follows that of nonradioactive elements. However, with the
        discovery of isotope discrimination for a number of elements by a range of organisms, this may not hold true.

          Might be a key as to how radiation directly damages immune system besides the gut based flora route that I have already established

          http://mbio.asm.org/content/3/2/e00056-12.full

          Besides the role of chitin in supporting structural stability, chitin and host enzymes with chitinase activity have an important role in host defense and modifying the inflammatory response. Thus, chitin appears to provide a link between the fungus and host that involves both innate and adaptive immune responses. Recently, there has been increased attention to the role of chitinases in the pathogenesis of allergic inflammation, especially asthma. We review these findings and explore the possible connection between fungal infections, the induction of chitinases, and asthma.

          • So far, this seems restricted to fungal cell wall, and not cell walls in other chitin uses, but we shall see…..

            • Mammalian cells do not contain chitin, but they do produce several forms of chitinases with chitinolytic activity, including chitotriosidase (CHIT1), acidic mammalian chitinase (AMCase), and other chitinases that apparently lack activity, like YKL-40. Chitinases with chitinolytic activity are thought to play a role in the innate immune response to fungal and parasitic infections.

              • also keep in mind the dead sea life that was found with "fungal infections"

                The cell wall of candida is composed of fibrin and chitin. I sometimes think of humans as a kind of out of control fungal growth…but regardless…we always have some chitin going in…we eat it, colonized by it. Especially oceanic mammals. But I was going to mention the fibrin…its in the back of my mind to research this because Ive noticed more people getting thrombosis and there are some similarities of fibrin and chitin

                    Formation of excessive fibrinogen inside arteries and vessels is an inflammatory response to a toxin, or pathogen. There may be other causes.

                      "The immune dysfunction, which includes natural killer cell dysfunction, results in opportunistic infections and yeast overgrowth, making the symptoms worse. Recent studies have shown that the coagulation dysfunction is usually initiated by a viral infection and has genetic predisposition. This abnormal coagulation results in increased blood viscosity (‘slugging’) and a deposition of soluble fibrin monomers along the capillary wall. This results in tissue and cellular hypoxia, resulting in fatigue, and decreased cognition (brain fog). Neurotransmitter abnormalities and macro and micro nutrient deficiencies have also been shown to occur with these disorders."

                      so does fibrin accumulate radioactive isotopes of any kind? sort of how cesium goes to muscles and iodine goes to the thyroid…because that could certainly initiate an autoimmune inflammatory reaction.

                    • HoTaters HoTaters

                      Fibrin often sequesters toxins and pathogens in the system. Some pathogens use it to their advantage, i.e., Lyme spirochetes. The Lyme spirochetes (and Lyme can exist in at least four or five different forms, including a cell-wall deficient, bleb, spirochete, and encysted form) utilize fibrin to shield themselves from the immune system. The fibrin serves to sequester the Lyme, and allows for the formation of Lyme biofilm.

                      Not sure if this is relevant to the discussion but glean what you can if it is useful.

                    • HoTaters HoTaters

                      Will try and explain that more clearly. The purpose of building fibrin is to wall off the toxin, pathogen, etc., so that it cannot do harm to the host organism.

                      How effective this is, is open to debate, esp. considering organisms like Lyme use it to their advantage, and build biofilms. Not sure if the biofilm actually incorporates the fibrin into its structure or not, but fibrin is supposed to aid the building of pathogenic biofilms.

                    • HoTaters HoTaters

                      Dr. Holtorf and many of the Lyme docs use enzymes like Wobezyme, Carnivora, Serrapeptase to break down the fibrin inside the vessel walls.

                      Many of the Lyme docs consider the use of enzymes effective in breaking down bacterial biofilms, as well.

                      So the biofilms and excess fibrin appear to go hand in hand.

                    stock, I think if you can find how the function of chitin is analagous to the formation of fibrin and fibrinogen (i.e., in response to a chemical, environmental toxin, trauma, radionuclide, or other "insult") in veins, arteries, and tissues in human bodies, you'll get the prize. See Kent Holtorff's video at his website. He has described in detail how fibrin forms in the body of human beings and leads to chronic illness, the collapse of the immune system, even death.

                    by jove, I think you are on to something! The plankton are continually competing. Blooms are always suppressed by other species. With Nietsche having the survival advantage, they can bloom unhindered. They also adjust their DA for the situation. IF its found that the algae can use DA to dispose of unwanted heavy metals (hint), then an increase in DA may be seen, or a bioconcentration could be seen. I first noticed this correlation (much like the acute water exposure of afflicted aquatic animals) when I found the history of domoic acid poisoning correlated with Chernobyl and another toxic algae with the Bikini atol nuke test. Seeing the analog of DA to glutamine, I immediately hypothesized that the radioactive and neurotoxic DA could be shuttled right to the nervous system. My hands started shaking and my head twitched with excitement at the discovery. I couldnt wait to share it with ENEnews. That was a couple years ago

        • Code, besides fungi, algaes also use chitin in the cell wall in various concentrations and places, depending on type of algae

          Chitin was visualized in cell walls after hydrolysis with potassium hydroxide and subsequent postfixation of the deacetylated polysaccharide (chitosan) in OsO4. Areas of chitin deposition appeared dark borwn by light microscopy and electron dense in the electron microscope. With this method, the presence of chitin was demonstrated in the cell walls of the green alga Pithophora oedogonia (Montagne) Wittrock and two fungi, Ceratocystis ulmi Buism. (C. Moreau) and Blastocladiella emersonii Cantino and Hyatt. Most of the chitin in P. oedogonia ws found in the crosswall disk and small amounts occurred in the outer longitudinal walls. The septal disk of C. ulmi also contained chitin, but significant amounts were present in the inner and outer regions of longitudinal walls as well. Chitin was present throughout the walls of B. emersonii. Small amounts of chitin were not easily demonstrated by this technique, but removal of chitosan by exposure to dilute acetic acid before osmium fixation disrupted cell wall integrity, suggesting that small amounts of the structural polysaccharide had been removed.

    "Ice cores from the era of the Black Death have revealed for the first time how human industry has triggered the release of toxic lead into the air.
    Scientists previously assumed that there was a natural level of lead in the air, caused by earthy processes including volcanic eruptions.
    But a study of ice cores holding information about our atmosphere stretching back 2,000 years has identified a short period of time when no lead was released into the air.
    The time period, from 1349 to 1353, coincides with the spread of the Black Death, when British industry reached a standstill because of widespread worker death. 
    This has led scientists to conclude that there is no natural amount of lead pollution in air and that harmful levels of the toxin are the result of human activity."

      Musta been a disappointment to the scientists. No 'opportunites for research'…

    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

      but WHY isnt there natural lead content, insofar as it exists naturally in the ground? Scientists have developed a theory that could explain it; the high density of lead, in conjunction with the earth rotation results in a centrifuge effect where any unbound lead migrates over several years to the edge of the earth where it then flies off

    Great news!

    The krill are absorbing radiation and capturing it.

    The bad news is they die and so does most living things that depend on a food chain.

    The good news is that you won't have to worry about eating irradiated tuna.

    The bad news is there won't BE anymore tuna.

    Probably take 30 years to rebuild the food chain

    And if there is another japan Tsunami, and the millions of tons of radioactive trash, and whats is in those tanks at Fukushima gets into the ocean, if could wipe out the Pacific for 100 years.

  • Hey shithead doctors, first do no harm!

    What is Radiation Fibrosis Syndrome?

    Radiation fibrosis syndrome occurs as a result of radiation therapy. Radiation can cause the abnormal production of the protein, fibrin, which accumulates in and damages the tissue in the area that received radiation.

  • code say–no mention of fibrin would be complete without nattokinase

    I eat Natto probably 3 to 5 times a week, great for the gut and heart.

      oh maybe I get a little respect now and then but it wasnt always this way. Growing up my pop made my mom cry. I told her weve been through a lot but we'll make it. She said give me a high five and when my hand was in the air she slugged me in the stomach. I was doubled over in pain…I said Ma, what did you do that for? She said so she didnt have to lift her arms to box me in the ears.

      No, growing up was tough I tell ya. Back in the sixties they were doing testing to see how bad nuclear fallout was. My mom volunteered me! I said mom, Im feeling a little uneasy…what If I dont make it? But she assured me that would be OK. I was walking into the lab and I saw these skinny mice without any hair. I said is that normal?

        I'm sorry your life was so horrible.

        I just recently found out that when my daughter was 16 or 17 in high school and in therapy, her father just came and stole her and took her to California. I always thought she decided to go live with him. I just found out that he told her that I said she had to go live with him. He told my other daughter the same thing.

        All these years and she thought I didn't care anything about her and I didn't know why she thought that. Both daughters thought that. It was such a terrible thing for them to believe that. He didn't put her in school but just had her babysit with her autistic half brother. She never did graduate high school, although she came back home. I always hated him for stealing her that way, but I didn't know how bad it was. I've always had a relation with all my children. And I've followed her around and moved near her all these years and helped her with her children.

        I just feel devastated. My other daughter brought it up and I told her he just came and stole her, but she said she knew what happened. Then sometime later my oldest daughter told me what he had said. I guess they forgave me all these years.

        • Sounds like you have some really bad communications problems/skills, you still don't know for sure if they forgave you?

          How can you not address those issues in real time, you plan to do it on your death bed?

          Low empathy, no. Sometimes people need to be disgusted to take action.

          • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar

            I know they forgave me because they talked to me about it. And they believe me now. I just feel that I failed at the only things I really cared about.

            I was brought up and never allowed to say anything. I could never explain anything. I was allowed to play the piano and read. I was always 2 years younger than everyone else in school.

            I failed honors calculus at Stanford because I didn't have enough money to buy the book, and when I decided to buy it anyway, there were no more copies in the bookstore. I never told anyone until after my dad died. Anyway, I just went ahead and took the next quarter of calculus. And the fourth quarter I got an A.

            I've lost many things because I don't know how to talk. But people communicate in other ways. Words by themselves are not the usual mode of communication anyway. I smiled once at a woman in a hijab, and her eyes were extremely expressive.

            About 6 or 8 months in California, she asked to come back home and of course we were all thrilled to have her come back. And she did have a chance to get to know her father. And she said that she like taking care of Victor.

            She got her GED and got 2 years at a community college studying robotics. She made lots more money than I ever did.

            Anyway, people learn from pain and they especially learn to have compassion for others. I'm close to all my children and they are all extremely happy and are happily married with children and successful. My oldest daughter has…

            • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar

              My oldest daughter has 5 grandchildren and she takes care of them lots of times.

              If you pray to God He will help you even if you have some defects or lots of defects.

              He died more than 20 years ago, so they were still pretty young. So God takes care of us even when we don't know the right questions to ask.

            • My comment was related to
              "I guess they forgave me all these years."

              Maybe you meant a different way than the literal interpretation.

              • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar

                I'm very close to my children because I was by myself. So they never had to compete for my affection. And I talk about things when they bring them up. I've always allowed them to say anything they want. Their first marriages failed, for 2 of them after 17 years. And I talked to them all to help them adjust. And they all 3 married people the second time that they are very happy with. They've already told me whatever they were mad at me for. I've never expected them to be perfect, and they don't expect me to be perfect either.

                • You missed my point, again, Are you guessing about something very immportant, while refusing to admit to your offspring how their father lied so much….

            My son is coming with his family for Fathers Day and a few days and will be with my oldest daughter's family and me. I never told my children what he did wrong, and I think it would hurt them if I did. I would rather they think there is something wrong with me, than to hurt their feelings for their father.

            My youngest daughter works for someone on Trump's cabinet, but I won't tell you more than that. Too many people want to hurt me.

            Anyway, I'm sad, but that's life. I have to go to substitute appreciation day tomorrow, but I've been fired because I can't get on my email, so I don't even know what anyone said. That will be awkward, but I'll do my best.

            • You can get on internet, but not on email?

                I didn't attack anyone. I was discussing politics.

                I was attacked 30 or 40 times. And you and HoTaters said the most mean things possible to me.

                I am suicidal, but I will never hurt someone by committing suicide. Before I had cancer I prayed to get cancer because I couldn't commit suicide. My prayer was answered and I have stage 4 cancer in 1989.

                Now I am reading Bible verses.

                You have no idea how much you both are hurting me. But then you've been doing it for years.

                Please look at your own posts. I reported every ugly name calling post I received.

                And you are still at it. Politics isn't worth trying to destroy me. I report news stories, because people should know what is happening in the news. I don't agree with everything I read. But the stories are part of reality whether one believes they are the truth or not. You can't blame me for what happens or for your own attempt to destroy me.

                You can't even imagine how much you are hurting me, because I actually have enormous empathy for people, even those who try to destroy my soul.

                HoTaters attacked about 30 times with the most disgusting false accusations.

                If you want to destroy this website, you are doing a very magnificent job.

                I only shared my own pain, because I didn't know what to say to Code. And if I see Code again, I have to try to relate to him today.

                My pain was for Code, not for you.

              All those age old misunderstandings from childhood based on assumptions and lies , started by a monster..rotting where they are stored away in silence..keeps influencing the here and now on a conscious and subconscious level..how difficult it is for you to change that because of how trapped you are in thinking second degree of yourself..do not underestimate the healing powers of truth..just the better understanding alone of what it meant for each of you will be a major relief already..my two cents

      The track of a charged particle (an electron or an ion) may pass through and ionize DNA directly (direct action) or ionize water molecules in the vicinity, thereby producing highly reactive OH• radicals, which can diffuse to DNA and react with the target molecule (indirect action). Other aqueous free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS), including O2•− and H2O2, are less important than OH• for producing lethal DNA damage

        A Running List of How Trump Is Changing the Environment
        The Trump administration has promised vast changes to U.S. science and environmental policy—and we’re tracking them here as they happen.

        With Donald Trump's win in the race for the White House, scores of regulations that have reshaped the contours of corporate America over the last eight years suddenly seemed vulnerable.

        The Trump administration’s tumultuous first months have brought a flurry of changes—both realized and anticipated—to U.S. environmental policy. Many of the actions roll back Obama-era policies that aimed to curb climate change and limit environmental pollution, while others threaten to limit federal funding for science and the environment.

        The stakes are enormous. The Trump administration takes power amid the first days of meaningful international action against climate change, an issue on which political polarization still runs deep. And for the first time in years, Republicans have control of the White House and both houses of Congress—giving them an opportunity to remake the nation’s environmental laws in their image…

    Update: New PSU study links 1979 TMI accident to thyroid cancer
    Written by Brett Sholtis/York Daily Record | Jun 1, 2017

    … …The NRC is eager to review the new findings, Sheehan said. However, to date, he said, evidence shows that the radiation released posed no danger to the community.

    For those who have long disagreed with the industry, however, the new study adds credence to their beliefs. Cindy Folkers, a scientist at Beyond Nuclear, which opposes nuclear energy, said she'd be more surprised if the study had shown no connection.

    Folkers takes issue with the way that the NRC and others have defined the level of exposure. "They've called the shots on this conversation for a number of decades now. If you're not asking the right questions, then you're not going to get the right answers that society needs to have."

    She cited a 1997 study by University of North Carolina Chapel Hill scientist Steven Wing that showed a connection between the accident and lung cancer and leukemia in a "plume" that traveled from the plant.

    "It was the only study that actually showed a health impact, and it was because of how he looked at the data," Folkers said. However, the nuclear energy industry dismissed it because they disagreed with its approach. …

  • Funny how they interview, and the lady scientist "believes" its from Domoic Acid. I sent an email to request information on how much testing has been done.

    And would a cruise missile be a good solution? at least for Kissinger

  • Summary by stock — a commenter at ENENEWS who goes by "CodeShutdown" provided much of the information and got me going down this path.——————————————————————————–
    The “resources list” in the orginal “article” is mostly a jumble of sources that I gathered together in the process of wrapping my head around the mass ocean deaths in the Pacific.

    In 2016 we busted NOAA and MSM dead to rights lying about all the deaths, throwing out "Domoic Acid" as the main culprit even though when I got my hands on their real data, it only showed 1 to 3% deaths caused by Domoic Acid. We will see how it does play a role though.
    Starvation and a weakened immune system were the main culprits, as they are now.

    So we know that krill are highly affected by even low levels of radiation in the environment, proven by test data on the CS134/CS137 ratio in water showing that the krill are taking CS134 to Davy Jone locker at faster rates because it kills them faster.

    The disappearance of krill also allows other phytoplankton to expand.
    More algae. More Domoic Acid. Domoic Acid latches on to Brain Neurons and causes them to fire. But here is the real kicker, Domoic Acid acts like a chelator and can grab and carry heavy metals with it.
    So any radioisotopes present can be neatly delivered right right to the brain neurons, for a wicked double whammy.

    Additionally, we know that even low levels of radiation bio-magnify in…

    • Chitin, a biological structure of great importance in many ocean flora and fauna. Radiation is one of the few things that can break the tough Chitin bonds, so it can blow up the structure of animals and plants. But its destruction does not have to end just there. It can also, when close to DNA, destroy that DNA.

      But it gets even "better", Chitin is also used in cell walls, where it affects the ionic and voltage gradients which are prime mechanisms that allow and tell cells how to function, change, grow. Morphogenesis — is the fancy way of describing how cells grow into different body parts, and so it should be obvious that having damaged Chitin in the cells is not going to be a good thing for proper cellular development.

      But if you ask the "scientists" at the International Atomic Energy Association, they will explain that radiation damage can be 100% calculated by modelling the human body literally as a bag of water with energy being deposited into it. It is shameful.

      So to sum it up:

      Radiation destroys chitin structure, DNA, and cell growth and bio-magnifies
      This causes a huge amount of the food chain to simply sink to the bottom
      Radiation also damages the immune system in a number of ways, particularly gut flora (70% of the immune system created in the gut) and creating hurtful immune response.
      Radiation allows more algae, and thus Domoic Acid, to be created

      • Domoic acid grabs radiation and then delivers itself and the radiation directly to the brain and nervous system of sea critters, making them confused, lethargic.
        So the food chain is massively hurt, the critters are sick and can't think well, therefore they can't even hunt well for the available food.
        And we have what we are seeing in the real world.

        But the military/fed funded scientists who are directed to make sure that people are smiling and unaware of the causes of the mass die-offs:
        1) Test the water only, and state how there is no danger
        2) Hang their hats on the ICRP radiation danger dose model (just a bag of water)

        All laid out nicely and prepared for them to ignore.

        • Sent stuff to around 100 scientists, many in the marine field. nary a peep. They are great at ignoring truth that doesn't fit their narrative.

          • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

            All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident. Arthur Schopenhauer

            Truth in nuclear is a multidisciplinary requirement. The scientists are too narrow…and too stuck.

            Heres a big one they are stuck on; Assumed stochastic effect of radiation dose. It is now known that low level radiation causes reduced health, or morbidity of various degree. But this truth is blocked out of the scientist mind.

            Damage from fallout is not a random yes/no all or nothing thing. Man made nuclear radiation has become a chronic environmental stress that didnt exist with background radiation. Not because of quantity, but radiation density. Every C137 atom is a hot particle to a cell. 'doping' the intracellular millieu with even very low levels of fallout changes the bonds, ionic gradients and messenger molecules. In particular, the mitochondria are downgraded.

            we were talking about glutamate, Domoic acid, thrombosis and chronic disease. This is a chain of ideas no marine biologist is going to put together. It is only a hypothesis, but its an example of how biology can amplify the effects of radiation, which disqualifies the dose concept.

            Domoic acid is a glutamine analog. It is used by the Nietsche algae to transport metals. Both glutamine and DA absorb or chelate heavy metals. Now lets look at a dolphin…various chemical stressors deplete glutamine. Cancer depletes glutamine. …

            • q Farthington MacMananus

              A bit unrelated, but would you say msg and glutamine are the same? And that the reactions or metabolic processes related to them are identical?

              • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                Farth is that a trick question? Monosodium glutamate is 'natural' found in tomatoes and other foods. But not identical to glutamine, being the sodium salt of glutamic acid. It seems up to 40% of the population is negatively sensitive to MSG. Perhaps natural foods of complexes which make msg benign whereas isolated and processed may register as a contaminant, or even in fact be contaminated. I havent studied it. The key is to default to natures ways and tread carefully

            • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

              algae that has a survival advantage by being able to eliminate nuclear fallout can bloom in the ongoing competition amongst algaes (and of course all life). In fact the domoic acid production may be increased by fallout…uproven, but possible, as the increase in domoic acid poisoning has increased along with the nuclear fallout pollution. A dolphin that is at all depleted of glutamine may absorb the chemically similar DA, along with its load, however small, of radioactive fallout. This excitatory glutamine analog wreaks havoc in neurons and may be stored in glial cells, a typical biochemical pathway.

              • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                microscopic hot spots of radiation create free radicals and these free radicals or reactive oxygen species have very complex functions, among which is a signal or messenger factor. An inflammation response is triggered which can cause a cascade or amplification effect. Meanwhile, glutamine is intimately related to mitochondria dysfunction.
                Glutamine is a multifaceted amino acid that plays key roles in many metabolic pathways and also fulfills essential signaling functions. "mitochondria represent a major site of glutamine metabolism in numerous cell types. Glutaminolysis is mostly a mitochondrial process with repercussions in organelle structure and dynamics suggesting a tight and mutual control between mitochondrial form and cell bioenergetics. [the linked] review describes an updated account focused on the critical involvement of glutamine in oxidative stress, mitochondrial dysfunction and tumour cell proliferation, with special emphasis in the initial steps of mitochondrial glutamine pathways: transport into the organelle and hydrolytic deamidation through glutaminase enzymes. " https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19703661

                • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                  So we noticed friends getting these blood clotting problems. Of course it is impossible to tie to nuclear fallout. But the above links suggest how even small alterations of the free radical cellular milieu can induce a cascade of inflammation.
                  Inflammation is at the root of much disease.

                  "Emerging evidence indicates that impaired cellular energy metabolism is the defining characteristic of nearly all cancers regardless of cellular or tissue origin. In contrast to normal cells, which derive most of their usable energy from oxidative phosphorylation, most cancer cells become heavily dependent on substrate level phosphorylation to meet energy demands. … genomic instability and essentially all hallmarks of cancer, including aerobic glycolysis (Warburg effect), can be linked to impaired mitochondrial function and energy metabolism."
                  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2845135/

                  so by taking the ion exchange resin concept, we can see that many biological materials can bioaccumulate the very small levels of fallout we are exposed to and the action is not limited to random bullet hits to DNA, but can affect the entire signaling chemistry, inflammation cascades and mitochondria function. This happens on an atomic/molecular level which is why they very high specific activity of man made radiation is implicated and distinguishes it from some forms of background radiation, especially the natural radionuclides with very long half lives like k-40, ubiquitous….

            • Third, the nay-sayers indignently shout out….I KNEW THAT ALL ALONG, why are you non certified scientist acting like you are teaching me something.

    I took a drive up to the Boundary Waters to check out campsites a couple of days ago, many bugs on the windshield this year compared to very few bug splats the last few years but not like it used to be when I had to clean the windshield every time I stopped for fuel. The birds are making a comeback too but the Blue Jays are still having problems with their tail feathers, white weak single feather usually sticking out at an angle. No catastrophic spring molting this year, so that's good.

    Bumblebees are making a very small comeback and are getting bigger again up north but closer to the cities they still are small and distressed. I think TruGreen Monsanto lawn chemicals are playing their part. Also, the deer population seems down as well considering it's spring and I should have seen greater numbers, have seen more in years past and the variety of animals seems to be down.

    In past years I've seen a Great Horned Owl flying in the daytime, many different raptors, porcupine, moose, black bear, coyote, fox and more but this trip I saw less than a dozen deer, geese, some vultures, one kestrel and a loon.

    I was wondering if this was due to the corium being at least partially in the ground now, is it perhaps acting as a shield? Or is this just a natural course of events resembling the Chernobyl animal population studies which indicated recovery in lesser hot spots?
