New Scientist, May 5, 2017 (emphasis added): Fukushima accident gave everyone an X-ray’s worth of radiation — “We don’t need to worry,” says Nikolaos Evangeliou at the Norwegian Institute for Air Research, whose team has conducted the first global survey of radiation exposure caused by the meltdown of three nuclear reactors at the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear plant… Evangeliou’s team has calculated the approximate exposure of everyone on Earth to two radioactive isotopes of caesium… He has estimated the dose that most individuals received to be 0.1 millisievert. “What I found was that we got one extra X-ray each,” says Evangeliou… But Evangeliou says that the effects on wildlife around the plant might be more severe. Already, he says, increased levels of radiation around Fukushima have been linked to declines in bird populations there between 2011 and 2014. “There have also been reports of declines in other species such as insects and some mammals,” he says…

Daily Star, May 7, 2017: Global cancer fears as it’s revealed WHOLE WORLD got nuclear radiation blast; EVERYBODY on Earth was dealt a dose of radiation by the Fukushima triple nuclear meltdown, a shock new study has revealed… And the plant continues to release radiation to this day, despite efforts to contain the leaking. Now a study from the Norwegian Institute for Air Research has revealed the true extent of the global impact. Lead author Nikolaos Evangeliou told New Scientist magazine: “What I found was that we got one extra X-ray each.” According to the NHS website, people exposed to X-rays face the risk of developing cancer “many years or decades later.”… Most people got 0.1 millisievert of extra radiation from the Fukushima disaster

BGR, May 7, 2017: Japan’s nuclear disaster gave everyone on Earth extra radiation — It’s been over half a decade… but scientists are only just now confirming its far-reaching effects… each human on the planet received roughly 0.1 millisievert…

Evangeliou et al. (pdf), European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2017: Global transport of Fukushima-derived radionuclides from Japan to Asia, North America and Europe. Estimated doses and expected health effects… A large number of fission products were released and transported worldwide. We estimate that around 23% of the released 137Cs remained into Japan, while 76% deposited in the oceans. Around 163 TBq deposited over North America, among which 95 TBq over USA, 40 TBq over Canada… About 14 TBq deposited over Europe… and 47 TBq over Asia… 69 TBq deposited in the Arctic, as well. An attempt to assess exposure of the population and the environment showed that the effective dose from gamma irradiation during the first 3 months… in the rest of the world it was less than 0.1 mSv. Such doses are equivalent with the obtained dose from a simple X-ray… However, monitoring data have shown that much higher dose rates were committed to organisms raising ecological risk for small mammals and reptiles in terms of cytogenetic damage and reproduction.

  • A small but dedicated group of people from various countries around the world have been saying this since 311 while the nuclear industry, media, and gov "officials" have attempted to sweep this news (and us) under the rug.

    Hi, I'm just chipping in to remind everybody that nobody has been killed, harmed or in any way affected by radiation from the Fukushima nuclear accident.

    If somebody could provide a name of one person, anybody, who has, I'd be very impressed. So would the Japanese government, the United Nations, Oxford University, not to mention Wikipedia.

    Have a nice day.

    • Uhm, can you support your opinion with any fact based evidence?

      No, you can not and,in fact, we already have seen reports of people who have died as a result of exposure to TEPCO Fukushima radiation.

      Let's begin with all the babies who were terminated before birth due to malformation in the womb post 311… and all those who succumbed to rare and aggressive cancers, and the sudden death heart failure victims…

      Take your unscientific and unproven opinion away. Even low level radiation exposure is proven to bring on premature death. That's a fact.

    • It's easy to claim no deaths have occurred due to Fukushima's radiation when agencies, governments, and industry suppress medical data.

      News media and medical professionals are gagged. Scientists and researchers are gagged.

      IAEA controls information flow at WHO. The UN enables nuclear industry perps.

      Yourmama.. wants A to B.
      We aren't privy to the numbers of workers that have died.
      Hard to know the real numbers that would have been exposed had they not died in the tsunami.
      The true conditions around Fukushima Npp will never be known, do to the secrecy laws in Japan.
      Normalcy bias and aesthetics will buy a new face for the area no matter the exposure rates.

        Several hundred American service personnel who say they became sick from radiation after participating in relief operations for the 2011 tsunami that set off the Fukushima nuclear disaster are now getting high-profile support in Japan.
        Junichiro Koizumi, prime minister from 2001 to 2006, told reporters yesterday he has set up a special fund to collect private donations for the former service members, with the goal of collecting USD1 million (100 million yen) by the end of next March, mainly to help with medical bills.

        Koizumi, 74, one of Japan’s most popular prime ministers in recent decades, was in San Diego in May to meet with 10 of the former service members, who have joined a class-action lawsuit against Tokyo Electric Power Co., or TEPCO, the utility that operates the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant.
        The lawsuit, filed in 2012, is ongoing, and a California judge has ruled it will proceed. More Navy personnel and Marines are joining the suit, now numbering about 400, according to Koizumi. Some 70,000 Americans took part in Operation Tomodachi, or Friend, flying in aid from an aircraft carrier and other warships off the coast of northeastern Japan.
        Since then, some servicemen and women have become sick with cancers, leukemia, thyroid ailments, brain tumors and other diseases and they blame radiation."

      Another death- "FUKUSHIMA, Japan — A worker hired to help bring the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant under control died suddenly, the third fatality reported among workers at the stricken plant since the March accident, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday.

      Plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) said it believed the death Thursday, like the previous two, had nothing to do with exposure to radiation in the plant. It also said the death did not result from overwork, though the company did not disclose the cause."

    • Here is proof and plenty of it.

      A lie is being perpetrated on the Internet that no significant radiation related fatalities have resulted from the ongoing Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe. Anyone using any semblance of logic will know that this is fantasy! The evidence is overwhelming and clear, that large numbers of people have died, and more will die in the future as a result of this ongoing nuclear catastrophe!

      15 Fukushima Workers Have Cancer

      A new report out of TEPCO and the various parties involved in decommissioning documents that 15 workers from Fukushima Daiichi have developed cancer. These cancers are considered sufficiently linked to their work at the plant during the initial disaster and the subsequent effort to manage the site.

      8 workers have developed leukemia.
      5 workers have developed malignant lymphoma
      2 workers have multiple myeloma

      Ten months after the earthquake and tsunami and the subsequent nuclear accident, perinatal mortality in 6 severely contaminated prefectures jumped up from January 2012 onward: jump odds ratio 1.156; 95% confidence interval (1.061, 1.259), P-value 0.0009. There were slight increases in areas with moderate levels of contamination and no increases in the rest of Japan. In severely contaminated areas, the increases of perinatal mortality 10 months after Fukushima were essentially independent of the numbers of dead and missing due to the earthquake and the tsunami. Perinatal mortality in areas contaminated with radioactive substances started to increase 10 months after the nuclear accident relative to the prevailing and stable secular downward trend. These results are consistent with findings in Europe after Chernobyl. Since observational studies as the one presented here may suggest but cannot prove causality because of unknown and uncontrolled factors or confounders, intensified research in various scientific disciplines is urgently needed to better qualify and quantify the association of natural and artificial environmental radiation with detrimental genetic health effects at the population level.

    I learned something a while back.
    I learned that true exposure rates are to be secret.

    "Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments (special committee created by Executive Order of the President of the United States), 1994: The [Department of Defense] engaged in fallout data gathering. In the fall of 1954, the Armed Forces Special Weapons Project established a “Fall-out Study Group“… A December 16, 1954, memorandum from the chief of the Armed Forces Special Weapons Project stated… “The actual data obtained are SECRET and the sample collection should be discreetly handled.”… Another contemporary instance of selective disclosure of fallout-related research… is discussed in a February 1955 letter… Willard Libby, acting AEC chairman [reporting] on a proposed marine radiobiological survey in the Pacific… “The classification ‘Secret’ Defense Information has been assigned to the survey in order to avoid… unwarranted recrudescence [i.e. recurrence] of fears in Japan of radioactive contamination of fish… The fact of an oceanographic survey in the Pacific, however, is regarded as unclassified so long as purpose, content, and results are not revealed.”

    China Nuclear Power Plant Incidents Highlight 'Systemic' Safety Concerns
    2017-01-09

    “A string of mishaps at Chinese nuclear power plants last year has raised concerns about the safety of the rapidly growing industry, especially given the country's overall industrial safety record, experts told RFA.

    “By 2020, China will be the second-biggest producer of nuclear power after France, with 35 generators currently in operation and 21 more in the pipeline.

    “But last October, the National Nuclear Safety Administration (CNNSA) made public 16 safety failures that occurred in China's nuclear plants in 2016, all involving mistakes made by staff members, official media reported.

    “A total of 16 errors and incidents took place at eight nuclear power stations, including Ningde, Yangjiang, Fangchenggang, and Tianwanhe, the Global Times newspaper, which has close ties to the ruling Chinese Communist Party, reported.

    “Six incidents involved staff members breaching operational guidelines, and four were caused by a lack of internal communication, it said.

    “More worryingly, six were caused by staff members "pressing the wrong buttons," the report said.

    “While none of the errors is believed to have resulted in leakage of radioactive material, nor posed any threat to the public, the report comes against the backdrop of a litany of industrial accidents and public health and safety disasters in recent years.

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

      “Links to political culture

      “Experts say China's poor public safety record has roots that are system-wide and closely linked to the country's political culture, meaning that a more serious accident could happen in future.

      “In a commentary published in Communist Party mouthpiece the People's Daily on Nov. 14, Beijing University nuclear expert Wang Jing said that part of the problem stems from the fact that officials in the nuclear safety inspection department are lower in rank than the officials in the state-owned nuclear enterprises whom they are supposed to be inspecting.

      “Former nuclear power plant engineer Liang Taiping said the relatively high incidence of man-made incidents in China's nuclear industry is a product of the political system.

      "’The system that operates in China at the moment … has created a whole layer of trained technical staff who are under huge amounts of pressure,’ Liang said.

      "’[This means that] not many people want to train in the technical professions; they all want to be party officials, so accidents and malfunctions are more likely,’ he said.

      "’Also, the people who really get the work done are paid much less than the officials and managers who don't get things done,’ Liang said.

      "’I worked in that industry for seven years, and the front-line technicians worked incredibly hard, and they're very dissatisfied,’ he said.

      “Liang said China is only now beginning to emerge from a culture of absolute secrecy around its…

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

        nuclear power industry.

        "’All nuclear industry enterprises were designated secret … and so nobody would dare to speak freely or publicly about anything,’ Liang said.

        "’Nuclear power plants have a very high security clearance, and they have to go through a high-level vetting procedure annually,’ he said.

        “Transparency concerns

        “Jiang Ming, who has previous experience of China's nuclear industry, agreed that transparency is also an issue, as China has traditionally treated any information about its nuclear power stations as highly confidential.

        "’This sort of operation generally takes place behind closed doors, as far as the rest of the world is concerned,’ Jiang told RFA in a recent interview.

        "’The only reason the National Nuclear Safety Administration has published these figures is international pressure operating behind the scenes,’ Jiang said.

        "’And it's not just nuclear power plants; look at the [2015] Tianjin explosion, what a huge cover-up had gone on there.’

        "’Most people who understand safety and risk management would have known about this, but was it ever made public? That's just the way the system works.’

        “Jiang said managers and local leaders are likely to turn a blind eye when corners are cut, as long as the bottom line looks good.

        "’If they do take responsibility and start dealing with the issues, they just run into even bigger networks of vested interests,’ he said.

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

          “China has formal risk assessment and safety procedures to cover every possible incident or accident, he said.

          “But he said that the overall attitude to health and safety seems to be that such procedures are just for show; and that such laxity is commonplace across the entire workforce.

          "’These risk assessments and contingency plans are formed according to unified guidelines issued by the International Atomic Energy Agency,’ Jiang said.

          "’But I have been in Chinese companies where they are just things … that you stick on the wall.’

          “Offshore floating plant

          “The concerns come as China began building an offshore floating nuclear power plant destined for disputed waters in the South China Sea.

          “China has officially begun construction of its first offshore nuclear power plant, a demonstration project that will employ a homegrown small modular reactor, according to the industry website Power.

          “State-run China General Nuclear Power announced the project at a Nov. 4 news conference, calling it a ‘top priority’ for the company.

          “The plant is an integral part of China's ‘strong marine power strategy,’ and will power oilfield exploration operations in the Bohai Sea, as well as deep-water oil and gas development in the South China Sea, it said.

          "’An offshore small modular reactor adopting a decentralized energy system could be a good solution for providing a steady supply of energy on islands, in coastal or far offshore areas,’ the company said in a…

    When energy drinks contained real (radioactive) energy

    ..There was a time when energy drinks actually contained real energy. The active ingredient in these drinks was radium, a radioactive element that releases a packet of radiant energy with every atomic decay.

    One of these energy-containing products was RadiThor. This energy drink was simply radium dissolved in water. It was sold in the 1920s in one-ounce bottles costing about US$1 each ($15 in 2016 dollars).

    Its manufacturer claimed the drink not only provided energy but also cured a host of ailments, including impotence. Evidence for a sexual benefit to humans was lacking, but at least one scientific paper claimed that radium water could increase "the sexual passion of water newts."

    RadiThor's most famous customer was Eben Byers, a Pittsburgh industrialist …guess what happened..?

    "After nuclear disasters like the Fukushima meltdown in Japan, radiation poisoning to food is one of the primary health concerns. So how is it that food processors can expose your food to radiation on purpose, in the name of food safety"? .. You Go Dr M!

    Irradiated herbs, seasonings and spices are exposed to HALF A BILLION chest X-ray's worth of gamma radiation. This information is clearly publicized by the USDA and FDA.

    The FDA presently supports the use of Cobalt-60 culled from nuclear reactors on all domestically produced conventional food.

    The level of gamma-radiation used starts at 1 KiloGray — equivalent to 16,700,000 chest x-rays — and goes all the way up to 30KiloGray (500,000,000 chest x-rays or 10,000 times a human lethal dose).

    Who the hell talks like this?

    'In Japan, sake treated with radiation is apparently appreciated'..

    The effects are dose dependent. The doses used for preservation and sterilization are adapted to their purpose. The scale of these doses is of course not the same as those applied to humans. For example, we take as low a dose of 50 to 100 grays (Gy), whereas such a dose is considered high in the case of radiotherapy of a cancer tumor and would be lethal if applied non-locally to the whole body..

    It is always interesting how nuclear apologists delight in hiding behind the definition of death by radioactivity. It is as if radiation poisoning causes a natural death, never to be defined as death by being irradiated.

    I would like to read the nuclear apologist's definition of death by radiation poisoning. The threshold is probably set so high that even complete hemorrhaging would only be attributed to organ(s) failure. Never mind radioactive victims are buried in lead lined coffins like nuclear waste.

    Ask a nuclear apologist about liabilities of nuclear fallout and they suddenly play stupid or turn ignorant. Pressed further on the costs of nuclear power versus benefits and nuclear apologists disappear or morph into babbling idiots while everything around them is dying off including companies that build nuclear reactors.

      'Monsanto accused of hiring army of trolls to silence online dissent – court paper'

      "…The plaintiffs alleged that Monsanto targeted all online materials and even social media comments that indicate potential dangers of its products, according to one document released late in April.

      “Monsanto even started the aptly-named ‘Let Nothing Go’ program to leave nothing, not even Facebook comments, unanswered; through a series of third parties, it employs individuals who appear to have no connection to the industry, who in turn post positive comments on news articles and Facebook posts, defending Monsanto, its chemicals, and GMOs,” the document reads.

      On a larger scale, Monsanto allegedly “quietly funnels money to ‘think tanks’ such as the ‘Genetic Literacy Project’ and the ‘American Council on Science and Health”– organizations intended to shame scientists and highlight information helpful to Monsanto and other chemical producers,” according to the plaintiffs.

      The accusations are backed by a batch of emails, used in court as evidence, which were written by some Monsanto executives, instructing the staff to “ghost-write” articles and then have some “independent scientists” just sign their names under the “study” in order to reduce costs…"

    May 8 2017

    "Over the past six years, starting just two weeks after the beginning of this nuclear disaster, Greenpeace conducted radiation surveys in the contaminated region. The latest survey gathered data in and around selected houses in Iitate village, located 30-50 km from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant [1]. In some homes, residents would receive a radiation dose equivalent to getting a chest x-ray every week. And that’s assuming they stay in the limited decontaminated areas, as 76% of the total area of Iitate has not been touched and remains highly contaminated."

    "Working with the IAEA is the World Health Organization. WHO was captured on issues of radioactivity and nuclear power early on by IAEA. In 1959, the IAEA and WHO, also established by the UN, entered into an agreement—that continues to this day—providing that IAEA and WHO “act in close co-operation with each other” and “whenever either organization proposes to initiate a program or activity on a subject in which the other organization has or may have a substantial interest, the first party shall consult the other with a view to adjusting the matter by mutual agreement.”
    The IAEA-WHO deal has meant that “WHO cannot undertake any research, cannot disseminate any information, cannot come to the assistance of any population without the prior approval of the IAEA…WHO, in practice, in reality, is subservient to the IAEA within the United Nations family,” explained Alison Katz who for 18 years worked for WHO, on Libbe HaLevy’s “Nuclear Hotseat” podcast last year."

    Radioactive particles are not spread evenly. Even if the total radiation released does equal one x-ray for everyone. Probably a numbers game to minimize the danger in people's minds.

    What if instead of 1 x-ray each, 19 people out of 20 received none and the 20th person got 20 x-rays. That averages out to 1 x-ray each.

    If they try to say those numbers are set in stone, well, what about people who stayed inside? Those people still get an x-ray? Ok, so the people who went outside must have gotten more than one, logically.

    and of course as others mentioned, internal hot particle means you inhaled an x-ray machine with the power on and stuck on zap. zap zap zap forever.

    What about bio-accumulation? Eat the wrong fish, get a hot particle lodged inside you, get a few x-rays at the doctor's office, drive across the country behind a truck hauling radioactive waste, live next to a nuclear plant, fly every once in a while, and don't forget to put on sunscreen that sun is the worst of all except for a banana.

    Fukushima: a Lurking Global Catastrophe?

    According to a recent article, “Potential Global Catastrophe of the Reactor No. 2 at Fukushima Daiichi,” d/d Feb. 11, 2017 by Dr. Shuzo Takemoto, professor, Department of Geophysics, Graduate School of Science, Kyoto University: The Fukushima nuclear facility is a global threat on level of a major catastrophe.

    • Jebus Jebus

      Without question, an old saw – what goes around comes around – rings true when it comes to radiation, and it should admonish (but it doesn’t phase ‘em) strident nuclear proponents, claiming Fukushima is an example of how safe nuclear power is “because there are so few, if any, deaths” (not true). As Chernobyl clearly demonstrates: Over time, radiation cumulates in bodily organs. For a real life example of how radiation devastates human bodies, consider this fact: 453,391 children with bodies ravaged, none born at the time of the Chernobyl meltdown in 1986, today receive special healthcare because of Chernobyl radiation-related medical problems like cancer, digestive, respiratory, musculoskeletal, eye disease, blood disease, congenital malformation, and genetic abnormalities. Their parents were children in the Chernobyl zone in 1986 (Source: Chernobyl’s Legacy: Kids With Bodies Ravaged by Disaster, USA Today, April 17, 2016)

Especially when they have a track record of lying, stealing and cheating to protect profits- on a global scale.

    I hope humanity comes to and remedies the situation before it's too late, if it isn't already… and even then, no matter what, we have to babysit and pay for the waste and contamination around the globe, forever.

    Multiple nuclear reactors could melt down, the cores could be expelled from containment, be unlocatable, contaminating the entire planet and oceans forevermore and the nuke industry would claim it was safe.

    According to Idaho State University, receipt of 0.1 millisievert carries a 1-in-a-million risk of dying from cancer. There are 7.5 billion people in the world. So 7,500 people will die from cancer as a result of Fukushima. This is just from Cesium, and excludes the millions of people exposed to substantially higher doses.

      Then again, a paper by Eugene Lin in the Mayo Clinic Proceedings states, ‘A widely used figure is a 5% excess risk of death from cancer with a 1 Sv (1000 mSv) dose’. It goes on to state, ‘Despite some controversy over the excess cancer risk of low-dose radiation, the linear no-threshold theory is widely used because an alternative method for assessing the potential risks of low-dose radiation is lacking.’ If we take the linear theory as valid, the 5% figure yields a death risk of 5 per million for a dose of 0.1 mSv, implying a global death toll of 37,500.

      If nothing else, the ‘everyone got an X-ray’ announcement gives lie to claim that the Fukushima disaster didn’t cost any lives.

        Specific subsets of patients may be at greater risk from radiation exposure, and radiation risk should be considered carefully in these patients.

        Because not all types of radiation produce the same biological effect, the dose equivalent is often used instead of the absorbed dose.

        … neutron irradiation and other confounding factors may explain the putative carcinogenic effect at low doses seen in atomic bomb survivors.

        It is imperative that all imaging tests, particularly those with potential patient harm, be performed only when indicated.

        A full discussion of radiation exposure in pregnancy is beyond the scope of this review, but the potential biological effects of in utero radiation include childhood cancer, prenatal death, intrauterine growth restriction, small head size, mental retardation, and organ malformation.

        Younger patients are at a substantially higher risk from radiation because they have more remaining years of life during which a radiation-induced cancer might develop. For example, Smith-Bindman et al2 estimate that, compared with a patient aged 40 years, the risk of cancer from a radiation imaging test is doubled for a patient aged 20 years and 50% lower for a patient aged 60 years.

        The projected risk for women undergoing studies that expose the chest are higher than in men because of the additional risk of breast cancer and high lung cancer risk coefficients.

      • HillbillyHoundDog HillbillyHoundDog

        NoFixedID- Thank you. I get your point, yes. The whole "x-ray" dose meme is a joke. An attempt by the nuke industry to downplay fallout and isotopes of Fukushima, which x-rays are absent of. There is no bioaccumulation from an x-ray, nor do you swallow, inhale or absorb isotopes, nor does it contaminate your food and water… and, frankly, the planet. But some of the quotes are worthy of notation. The author(s) clearly point out the difference in sources and their effects, by default. The nuke industry is hoping the general public is not educated or informed enough to question the quack medical procedures foisted upon the planet by Fukushima et al. They are hoping the peeps garner a new respect for the industry- much as they have for their medical doctors whom usually order x-rays. "Ask your reactor." I hope Code and others chime in on this atrocity…

          Hi Hillbilly. Lots of good posts from you as usual.

          Well we have the ECRR which gives the ingested health effects of fallout as roughly 600 to 1000x what the ICRP dose model gives. Even the ICRP model gives a multiplier for ingestion and different organs that can boost toxicity quite a bit.

          So an x-ray becomes 1000 x-rays. Or for a hot particle, 10,000 x-rays, locally. Then the science doesnt even recognize non cancer effects or reduced quality of life.

          I didnt read the source so I dont know what time span gives the x-ray. But for every person, there is another animal and a thousand little insects getting x-rayed…so visualize the whole globe of earth getting constant x-rays…its a macabre joke. Shame shame shame on scientists.

          Then, as pointed out already, the fallout is not really diluted, either macroscopically or atomically. There is a big difference between, say, a suntan, or focusing the same amount of sun via a magnifying glass which would burn horribly.

          Sea foam can enrich ocean fallout 300x. Chitin bioaccumulation, Busby's heavy metal effect which 'weaponizes' background radiation, and other factors known and unknown make the one x-ray meme a horrible farce. Yet the majority of scientists and students will believe it and focus on climate change. mainstream = conceited.

How was this calculation determined? Did they use the nuclear formula? Since public perception has taken precedence in all Fukushima related events, can someone please tell me how an x-ray will help curtail radiation related fears and prevent Fukushima fallout from causing mutations, illness and deaths and make citizens happier? Is this a preventative measure or just diagnostic? What was the outcome? What effect does an x-ray have on cyanobacteria? Will I be billed for my x-ray? Who will pay for the simpler life-forms, who are unable to pay? Is this our new healthcare plan? If an unnecessary procedure was ordered, can I sue for malpractice… Or just a refund?

    Thyroid cancer rates are rising faster than any other cancer in the United States, a new study found: Between 1975 and 2013, the number of thyroid cancer cases diagnosed yearly more than tripled.

    The numbers have prompted many epidemiologists to caution in recent years that the increase in cases is really just a matter of doctors catching more cases.

    "While overdiagnosis may be an important component to this observed epidemic, it clearly does not explain the whole story," said Dr. Julie Sosa, one of the authors of the new study and the chief of endocrine surgery at Duke University in North Carolina.

And it reported in the Duluth Herald, May 15, 1986: "Airborne radioactivity from the Chernobyl nuclear accident is now so widespread that it is likely to fall to the ground wherever it rains in the United States, the EPA said."

Reports also claim that the ruling could also include other pacific nations like the US who could also be eligible for compensation from the Japanese government who has effectively poisoned the entire Pacific Ocean and damaged the world’s food chain beyond repair.

Previously the Japanese government and Tepco, a subsidiary of General Electric, had strongly denied any wrongdoing, arguing they were the victims of bad luck.

    …It is interesting to note that TEPCO is a subsidiary partner with General Electric (also known as GE), one of the largest companies in the world, which has considerable control over numerous news corporations and politicians alike. Could this possibly explain the lack of news coverage Fukushima has received in the last five years? There is also evidence that GE knew about the poor condition of the Fukushima reactors for decades and did nothing. This led 1,400 Japanese citizens to sue GE for their role in the Fukushima nuclear disaster – and now have been found guilty.

    Even if we can’t see the radiation itself, some parts of North America’s western coast have been feeling the effects for years. Not long after Fukushima, fish in Canada began bleeding from their gills, mouths, and eyeballs. This “disease” has been ignored by the government and has decimated native fish populations, including the North Pacific herring.

    Elsewhere in Western Canada, independent scientists have measured a 300% increase in the level of radiation. According to them, the amount of radiation in the Pacific Ocean is increasing every year. Why is this being ignored by the mainstream media?

        "..Go to jail, Nuketards…"

        +99999999999999 ! Everybody knows that when something bad happens the first moments of responding are usually the most critical..they just covered our eyes and brains..in reaction to a global ELE-event..now we will probably die without ever knowing if there was really nothing humanity with all its "might" could have done to survive this catastrophe and the filthy warprofiteers and their gruesome sickness in all they do..including their despisement for safety regulations..that caused it..

        …GE could also be sued by American citizens or American business interests claiming injury from radiation emitted from the Japanese nuclear plant. So far, there have been no reports of harmful levels of radiation reaching the United States, but plaintiffs' lawyers say they are monitoring it.

        …If American law is applied, GE would still have strong defenses. Tom Ajamie, an attorney who represents plaintiffs and defendants in commercial litigation, said one of the biggest obstacles for plaintiffs would be overcoming the so-called foreseeability test. Under the test, plaintiffs would have to show to show that defendants could have reasonably foreseen the consequences resulting from the combination of a magnitude 9 earthquake and a tsunami.

        "Many cases get tossed from the courts because they did not meet the foreseeable standard," said Ajamie. "What occurred in Japan was a sequence of events that courts are not likely to find was reasonably foreseeable."

        **********

        From the link above: "The judge called the massive tsunami “predictable” and said the major nuclear disaster, which is responsible for 300 tons of radioactive water entering the Pacific Ocean every single day, could have been avoided." Reasonably foreseen? YES. Preventable? YES. Negligent? YES. Resulting in death? YES. ON A GLOABAL SCALE.

          The date of the above article is April 1, 2011. Me thinks the levels of radiation have surpassed "harmful". According to the nuke industry, no less than one x-ray per living organism on the planet… That's one helluva big x-ray machine.

          • DUDe DUDe

            The first people that got x-rated had not been damaged before by manmade radiation..so they had a bigger "buffer" of what they could take..we are being damaged from the day of conception in a manmade nuclear polluted soup..our immunity and general resistance is constantly degrading one way or the other regardless where you live..while the pollution is increasing..not good..a sledgehammer needs to come down on those powerhouses that hurt us..fast..

    "The nuclear “solution” to growing energy demand – now a massive technical and financial black hole, with negative marginal returns, draining scarce resources from struggling communities – is what industrial collapse looks like in the real world."

  • stock here: A continued focus on our "toxic environment" is justified. This year has seen many changes for me, for the better. Also just fixing past mistakes and realizing that "small insults" to the body and mind add up, and are worth eliminating whenever we can identify them.

    For instance, I had Calphalon pots and pans. Anodized aluminum. And when the anodization is gone, you are eating aluminum, which is not good. It's a neuro-toxin like Fluoride.

    Well the Calphalon was getting old and wore down. It went into the garbage, actually to the single sort recycling that the village offers. And replaced with a multilayer stainless set.

    Also last year, stopped using toothpaste with Fluoride. Easy peasy, Amazon prime. I went through my emergency Shelter in Place boxes to check and refresh supplies….lol, threw out a tube of Crest with Fluoride and replaced with the good stuff. Hilarious seeing in my mind's eye, a process of surviving through a radiation emergency while loading yourself with Fluoride. The absurdity of it all, LOL.

    See below, Lot's Wife always send mind provoking links, these are on Aluminum.

      As I've mentioned in some other posts, aluminum isn't just a neurotoxin like fluoride, aluminum also affects (like fluoride) magnesium and calcium uptake. There are compound, exponentiated effects (just those two factors, never mind radiation, roundup/calcium/magnesium deficient foods or worse, the opposite (dairy), etc.

      Aluminum "aids" in causing porous and brittle bone structure, promoting some cancers, etc.

    1. Fukushima is NOT a single exposure
    2. the exposure is INTERNAL and EXTERNAL,
    not only external, not a single event as a single x-ray exposure.

    Hidden Radiation Secrets of the World Health Organization

    by Robert Hunziker

    Imagine the following hypothetical: The World Health Organization (“WHO”) is deeply involved in a high level cover up of the human impact and dangers of ionizing radiation, intentionally hiding the facts from the public, a chilling storyline!

    After all, the world community depends upon WHO as an independent org t0 forewarn the general public of health dangers and to help in times of crises, not hide pivotal health facts from public eye.

    As it happens, that nightmarish hypothetical comes to life in an interview with Alison Katz, who claims: “We are absolutely convinced that if the consequences of nuclear radiation were known to the public, the debate about nuclear power would end tomorrow. In fact, if the public knew, it would probably be excluded immediately as an energy option.”

    Alison Katz heads a NGO known as Independent WHO, and she spends a lot of time arranging sandwich boards with messages like: “Complicity in Scientific Crime” or “Crime of Chernobyl – WHO Accomplice” in front of WHO headquarters/Geneva. For 10 years now on a daily vigil from 8:00-to-6:00
