“As a result of the incident with the nuclear power plant in Japan, several EPA air monitors have detected very low levels of radioactive material in the U.S.,” says State Health Commissioner Karen Remley, MD, MBA, FAAP. …

“Recent reports of elevated levels of radioactive material in rainwater in Pennsylvania and Massachusetts have been expected, since radiation is known to travel in the atmosphere,” adds Dr. Remley, “however, we are not seeing that in any of the monitoring data for the state.” …

Although short-term elevations such as these do not raise public health concerns and are expected to be relatively short in duration, VDH is taking the following steps to resolve any concerns here in Virginia:

… VDH is advising residents that the state’s drinking water supplies remain safe, but reminds Virginians out of an abundance of caution they should avoid using rainwater collected in cisterns as drinking water. …

  • GA Guidestones

    Where does the public water supply come from? RAINWATER that drops into reservoirs, lakes, springs and streams.

    Where do crops and soil for food get moisture?

    How do we wash our clothes, selves and food?
    Ulimately, MORE RAINWATER

    If Americans werent so corrupt, THIS latest NWO event would cause them to RISE UP and storm the govt offices to demand this nonsense be solved ASAP. Instead, they have the fools busy w/ useless entertainments and smug, self righteous “freedom campaigns” in arab countries.

    GA Guidestones….I do believe you are correct.

    It’s either head to the Southern Hemisphere
    or stay and fight.

    Radiation is hard to decimate with 762
    or 556.. however…and they(?) know it.

  • great!

    Great! I guess that would include staying out of the rain forecast in Virginia for the next few days?? I’ve been staying out of the rain ever since my houseplants got wrecked during the summer of the BP Gulf disaster with all the chemicals coming up the Gulf Stream right nearby on the Atlantic. It took my plants months to recover indoors from the “acid rain” burns and dying leaves.
    We must realize that it’s all one big environmental “bathtub” and we’re all going to get hit with more radiation. Just try to dodge it and take care of your health. They need to get innovative in conquering the disaster in Japan NOW. Call in all world experts NOW, already!!!

    The typical response you would expect from the dumbed-down,trusting sheepeople, who will believe anything anyone tells them as long as it doesn’t upset their world,of course. They would never research anything for themselves.
