    Do radioactive particles stick to plastic? "'Microplastics in our seas now outnumber stars in our galaxy': World Environment Day 2018 aims to beat plastic pollution"

  • LOL part of the globalist narrative is for people to give up everything that they held dear, everything that they felt was a rock in the storm that they could hold on to.

    1) Capitalism

    2) Patriotism

    3) Spirituality and or a belief in the Great Spirit or God

    4) Hetereosexuality and the Institution of Marriage

    The story below may be important, but check the spin imparted to it. "God" may be nothing more than a chemical reaction within your brain.

    Your thoughts on this?

    Yesterday was a quiet EQ day, pressure building during the calm. I saw like 24 EQ over 2.5 at one point in 24 hours. This is the 4th clear cycle of a daily "fast run" then a pause.

    I wonder how many people in Hawaii realize that the Hilina Slump could change their reality in a very real way? Low probability, but what we are seeing is unprecedented

    These findings could reveal the genes that enable the prolongation of life and in the future lead to the creation of a means to stall aging in humans

    August 21, 2015
    Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology
    Scientists have revealed that weak doses of gamma radiation prolong the life of drosophila flies (fruit flies), and that the effect is stronger in females than in males. These findings could reveal the genes that enable the prolongation of life and in the future lead to the creation of a means to prevent aging in humans.

  • And how complicated is it? It's really simple folks…

    If you spend all your time whining about Trump or watching the ballgame you just won't have the time to pay attention to important things…

    Then there are the technical ones that are so caught up in details that they are either confused or they are simply lying…

    So what's wrong with this picture?

    I'll leave that explanation to the master…

    And the scary part is the ones that repeat everything they read or hear somewhere no matter how ridiculous…

    You saw it on TV? Oh well it must be true then huh…

    Last time I was watching Good morning america they had a 10 minuet segment (I kid you not) on how to dress up your cat and then showed photos of people that apparently aren't busy at all… Look I dressed my cat up and took a photo of it and it made the national news…

    Yea like that's really the news. Local or national that's not the news…

    And the rest of these fools want to play the detail twisting game instead of actually paying attention?

    Hey, did Anne say wyoming is far away from nuclear radiation and stuff? I seem to remember something like that when talking about leukemia or something.

    Anyway, I just wanted to point out that's not quite true since it seems there is uranium mining as well as a number of uranium facilities. Some of them seem to have a lot of accidents, too.

    Some uhm, reminders of hypocrisy. Russia! Long time ago, but still.

    This isn't so long ago, though.

    "Wyoming – Irigaray ISR Processing Plant (Resin Processing Agreement)

    Anfield has also signed a Resin Processing Agreement with Uranium One whereby Anfield would process up to 500,000 pounds per annum of its mined material at Uranium One’s Irigaray processing plant in Wyoming. In addition, the Company can both buy and borrow uranium from Uranium One in order to fulfill some or all of its sales contracts."

    I wonder if that bypasses some export issues.

    "Milk Is Still Radioactive Because of Chernobyl, 30 Years After Nuclear Disaster More than 30 years after a Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant reactor exploded—blowing plumes of radioactive material across Europe—Ukraine is still feeling the effects of the tragedy.

    Milk from villages 150 miles away is still five times more radioactive than the Ukranian government judges safe, researchers reported in the journal Environment International. The scientists fear radioactivity levels won’t reach the safe limit until at least 2040 if officials fail to properly intervene."
    Milk is generally not needed for people, anyway. It doesn't do most bodies good, I'll say.

    2018 – Current radiological situation in areas of Ukraine contaminated by the Chernobyl accident: Part 1. Human dietary exposure to Caesium-137 and possible mitigation measures


    This study reports for the first time temporal trends for the period of 2011–2016 in 137Cs content in cow’s milk originating from private farms and households of 14 settlements located in the territories of the Rivne region, Ukraine. These areas are still radioactively contaminated as a result of the accident at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant (ChNPP) in 1986. In 2016, the average 137Cs activity concentration in milk exceeded the Ukrainian Permissible Level (PL) for adults of 100 Bq/l in samples from 6 settlements and the PL for children of 40 Bq/l in 8 settlements, reaching activity concentration of around 500 Bq/l in some samples.

    In the absence of governmental programs for implementation of necessary protective measures to reduce radiological risks to impacted populations, the exceedance of PL for the activity concentration of 137Cs in cow’s milk for adults of 100 Bq/l in the Chernobyl-affected areas of Ukraine could persist for many more years – until at least 2040.

    • Comment:

      Even thirty plus years after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, the food supply of these communities is still seriously contaminated with nuclear fallout, affecting the health and well being of men, women and children. The 40Bq/l permissible level is still way too high a level for children!


      • Yes indeed 40Bq/l is absolutely to high.

        And really it's not about dose, it's about excretion and repair from the damage caused.

        So they come up with a number based on public relations rather than health.

        And these numbers will go up according to the severity of the situation because in fact there is NO permissible dose of them.

        Each time you ingest ANY fallout it causes damage. That's at ANY level but, the excretion rate (biological half life) really determines the damage done.

        So if you pass it quickly it does less damage and your ability to repair yourself may mean the damage is temporary. With a growing child or a malnourished person the body is scavenging for nutrients and will take these things up and try to use them as nutrients. This prolongs the exposure and creates more damage than the same exact dose would create in a fully nourished adult.

        So if your body has plenty of potassium it will shed the excess and since Cesium mimics potassium the odds of passing it will be greater and will happen sooner than in a growing or malnourished person.

        Same with iodine and I-131/129

        This is why the government implemented Iodized salt after bomb testing.

        So in reality there is no way to determine a so called permissible dose of these substances.

        And there is NO safe dose of them, it's only a matter of how much damage occurs before your body ejects them through the stool or kidneys or sweat.

        • danger kitty danger kitty

          hippy dog, if you reread vial1's post, you will see the levels found were much higher than 40Bq/l. Some as high as 500Bq/l.
          40 Bq/l is just the target that words-on-paper aim for.

          You said something interesting;

          "Each time you ingest ANY fallout it causes damage. That's at ANY level but, the excretion rate (biological half life) really determines the damage done."

          I don't think I've heard it explained quite that simple way before. It would make all this confusing nuclear junk.
          So, if thats true, it's easy to figure out how long it takes to clear radiation from your body. Take strontium for example; half life of roughly thirty years. So you're saying that in thirty years all the strontium will be gone, right?


          • danger kitty danger kitty

            Incomplete sentence above. Should read–>

            I don't think I've heard it explained quite that simple way before. It would make all this confusing nuclear junk,,,easier to understand.

          • Biological life is a different measure entirely.

            The biological half life is a term to describe how much of these poisons your body can get rid of naturally over time.

            For instance a normal healthy person may excrete most of the Cesium 137 encountered through the kidneys in around 30 days. That's the biological life or the time it stays inside you.

            So most is a relative term and that stuff will wreak havoc on your kidneys on the way out. Those that have more than enough potassium in their body already (when exposed) will excrete way more Cesium at a much faster rate. Those that are deficient in potassium will retain it longer as the body thinks Cesium is potassium (Cesium is a potassium analog).

            It's the same with radioactive iodine.

            That's why they tout the iodine tablet as a help in stopping thyroid problems when exposed and iodized salt.

            The problem with eating potassium iodine tablets is if you are deficient in either potassium or iodine you would have to eat the tablets some time (some people up to 3 days in advance) before being exposed to radiation for them to do you any good.

            And you can't take em willy nilly as the side effects are way too dangerous.

            So "biological half life" is not a subject many are acquainted with.

            Why? Not only will this subject prove a threshold level for radiation is pure bunk, it also proves that the miracle tablets they try to tell you will work almost certainly will not under real life conditions.

            • So to be perfectly clear (ran outta space on that last post)…

              Cesium mimics Potassium

              Strontium mimics calcium

              And iodine is self explanatory…

              If you are deficient in any of these nutrient and come into contact with their fake radioactive cousins you will retain a much higher amount of them and for a much longer period.

              If you have too much of the real nutrient already in your body you will excrete their fake radioactive cousins much faster…

              The amount of time these substances stay in your body determines the damage done.

              And no one knows unless they have blood work done and make adjustments in their diet to not be deficient in any of them.

              That (nutrition, age and overall health) determines the biological half life of these substances in healthy people.

              It's a roll of the dice as to if a particular substance will get lodged in a organ or bone but the biological half life (substance, nutrition, age and overall health) will help you to understand the risks and lessen them (the risks) with good nutrition.

              And understand the fact that dose is not dose! A certain dose may not hurt one person while the same level may be the actual cause of death to another.

              Hope this help…

                Oh, that helps a lot, hippie dog.
                It helps me understand yet again that you don't know shit.

                Radio-isotope half life has nothing at all to do with excretion rate.

                Also, a half life period means HALF has decayed to a stable isotope, NOT ALL!
                Ot takes SEVERAL half life cycles for the bulk of the radiation to be gone.

                  • It would be a formula if every individual weren't unique in there phisical makeup at the time of exposure…

                    Since that is a true statement (each are unique) then it's considered a expression instead of a formula…

                    Now read that again if you need to to understand it…

                    It would be a formula if every individual weren't unique in there phisical makeup at the time of exposure…

                    That means the AGE, HEALTH AND NUTRITIONAL LEVEL when exposed are the determining factors…

                    So it's called a expression instead of a dead nuts (1+1=2) formula…

                    Get it?

                      Mr. H. Dog. Half life is an immutable physical property of each radioisotope.

                      Has no relation to age or health of its human victim.

                      Radiation does what it wants to do!
                      Remember that, gibberish hound.

                      You are mixing up half life with excretion/chelation. One is biological. The other is abiotic.

                      No wonder you are so confused!
                      But, keep talking.

                  Not unless they are vying for free subsidy from the government… That would be like a wood carpenter siding with the steel industry…

                  It's not their business. That's the competition.

                  It would be the dumbest thing they could do without free money coming in for simply doing nothing…

                  And let's not forget, where does most of the raw uranium in the world come from? The British Empire. The land rights in most of British controlled countries are for only 6 feet down…

                  "This can get messy very quickly since determining exact boundaries underground is difficult and costly, unless you live in the UK, in which case, the Crown has first dibs on all coal, oil, silver, gas and gold found on public or private property."

                  This equates to uranium and gas and oil deposits all over the British controlled world too (not just Britain).


                  So big petroleum owns the mineral, mining and drilling rights underneath your home already…

                  They would be fools to stray from their business and side with the direct competition unless there was ALLOT of free money involved huh…

                      Wait I thought it was strontium and calcium. Now it's cesium and calcium. Okay wait. I think there's something there actually, maybe with calcium and cesium reactions. Although, it's most likely to be completely different to anything said.

                      Hmm, maybe it could have some effects.

                      Who'd have figured, in say, bone and marrow related stuff (gee I wonder what that could be). Not only are cesium and strontium analogs and could replace potassium and calcium, it seems there's some sort of compound interaction. That's even before you consider radioactivity.

                    • AirSepTech AirSepTech

                      From your link DB:

                      "The interaction between cesium chloride CsCl and calcium chloride Cal2 was observed in bone marrow chromosomes of mice. The two salts were administered orally to laboratory bred Swiss albino mice in vivo singly or one followed by the other, or both simultaneously. CsCl induced chromosomal aberrations in frequencies directly proportional to the dose administered. The frequency of aberrations was reduced significantly when the two chemicals were administered simultaneously or when CaCl2 was given2 h before CsCl. Thus, CaCl2 is able to protect against the cytotoxicity of CsCl."

                      So I don't really imagine if it's really unstable too, that it'd be super beneficial.

                      But like that alternative cancer treatment you link, surely that's not radioactive cesium. but as you hint…it's probably not an awesome idea.

                      Especially if you consider how calcium absorption is hugely influenced by typical societal factors (agriculture, lacking magnesium, boron, excess fluoride, sunscreens/lack of sun, dairy, etc).

                      Now if you make that radioactive TOO, it'll probably be VERY likely to be absorbed, in general, considering the lack of calcium uptake/production.

                    • slandermen Deadboy

                      See now I'm talking about calcium and it was supposed to be about potassium, it's confusing.

                      Hey, maybe that "alternative" treatment is radioactive, I don't really know these things. I was just considering some of the other effects, before considering radioactivity.

                      "When enriched in radioisotopes, such as 137CsCl or 131CsCl, caesium chloride is used in nuclear medicine applications such as treatment of cancer and diagnosis of myocardial infarction."

                      AST. it could be noted the quantity of cesium the woman took, had it been radioactive, would have killed 10s of thousands of people.

                      The unhealthy etiology of Cs-137 is due to radioactivity, where the chemical nature is more a transport vector.

                      an unhealthy quantity of Cs-137 is as low as one atom per cell. There are a couple hundred trillion atoms in a cell. Not even enough to do anything by radioactivity and certainly not chemically.

                      This shows a complex, not yet understood mechanism or mechanisms of low level cesium-137 toxicity. Bioconcentration has something to do with it. The bystander effect has a lot to do with it. Signaling functions have a lot to do with it. Direct hits to DNA doesnt have a lot to do wtih it

                      Bandazhevsky gets the prize for understanding the low level that is damaging…much lower than any standard science model, and also some or much of the biological etiology. Hidden in that chain of cause and effect that he lays out is a huge complexity of biological features not yet grasped

                      Therein lies the failure of scientists who so often believe they know it all, and only upon further investigation begin to grasp how little they really know

                      Alternative medicine is always vilified in the press. Many many people have used cesium as an alternative cancer treatment. Hard to say how many benefited. The heart attack can be caused by excess potassium too. An injection of potassium has been used as a suicide technique and this dangerous electrolyte potential of potassium limits its allowed quantity in supplements.

                      It is a horrible tragedy for this womans husband to try and save his wife and end up killing her. The same happens all the time using standard medical techniques.

                      Im certainly not condoning cesium therapy, but one should look at this danger in perspective. The reason this comes up on this forum is that people try to pin the toxicity of cesium-137 on heavy metal poisoning and this is not true, unless you include radioactivity in the definition

                      Imagine if those "alternative" methods are the methods for vilification, demonization by association.

                      Some people may want to point the toxicity of cesium-137 purely as heavy metal poisoning, I dunno, some people may want to ignore the chemical aspect.

                      I'm saying cesium is often poison without radioactivity and it pretty much is the medium for radioactivity (in the cases of isotopes). Cesium isn't that big a deal if it's not internal, from what I understand.

                      Anyway, it has compound effects, with say, strontium, considerations of calcium and potassium should be taking into account. It has fairly profound effects on the lymphocytic system, from what I can tell (effects on plants, fish, mammals), even without radioactivity.

                      Now I'd imagine, if you have these chemical "trojans", considering some of the mineral deficiencies I've mentioned, that interfere with typical metabolic and immune system functions and they also happen to be radioactive, that's probably not good.

                      deadboy, as far as I can tell, you just reiterated what I was saying. Namely that the chemical toxicity of radioactive cesium is a very small, virtually insignificant part of what makes it toxic. But it plays a part as a vector. The chemical carries the radioactivity. take a dose of cesium that would be lethal if it were radioactive and you wont notice it.

                      The point is that people are trying to understand why this small amount of radioactive material is so damaging, and they are saying its a heavy metal poison, and thats not the right way to understand it.

                      This gets back to the 'banana lie' and the background comparison. If you wanted to make cogent debate with Woods Hole, you would start to lose the battle with this view of chemical toxicity.

              you excrete most of the cesium-137 in 30 days?

              The biological half-life of caesium is about 70 days.

              what do suppose 'half life' means?

                Lol, two arrows hit the same target, simultaneously.
                I love the sound of a dog whimpering on a beautiful Sunday morning.

              • “…The main problem with cesium-137, which is present in the form of salts, is its high water solubility. Cesium-137 ions are readily distributed in the body, and especially in the muscle tissues. The biological half-life is 110 days. This means that half of the cesium-137 has been excreted again after 110 days….”

              • And I hate to be so obvious but both Codeshutdown and Doc Anne have vastly different numbers…

                Why? They read it somewhere…

                Then they simply accept it without any real research into the true facts.

                So the "so called" biological half life of Cesium is 30 days is the correct statement (do the math) and as I explained earlier ALL those times depend on the AGE, CURRENT Nutritional LEVEL (at time of exposure) and Current state of health…

                So in 100 individuals of different ages and health and nutritional levels EVERY INDIVIDUAL WILL BE DIFFERENT!!!!!

                So the base is (for half to be excreted) IS 30 days.

                And most of the cesium (that's going to be excreted anytime soon) is excreted within 30 days. The remaining will be excreted based on, guess…

                AGE, CURRENT Nutritional LEVEL (at time of exposure) and Current state of health.

                So this is a great lesson for you…

                You can read 19 different Biological half life times and they will all be different. Many are wrong when referring to 100 individuals except for the first 30 or so days after exposure…

                Some will excrete more (Healthy and well nourished people) and some will excrete less (unhealthy, malnourished and the young that are growing rapidly and scavenging materials for that growth).

                There is no number after the first 30 days that will be consistent among 100 individuals…

                So you saw it somewhere on the internet so it must be true?

                You must be CNN and Fox News fans too…

                • HD, you have no link, and hence no credibiity.

                  Biological half-life of Cesium 137 is 110 days.


                  And people eat contaminated food and that increases many more years in the body.

                  Plus cesium 137 follows the pathway of potassium, but is a much larger molecule so it get stuck and never leaves the body.

                    The biological excretion in ANYONE pewrson is determined by how well their immune system works and how much is actually absorbed.

                    So if you are going into a area you know has a large amount of cesium eating 5 or more bananas at every meal (provided they are not contaminated) for a couple of weeks before going there WILL protect you…

                    Why? Your body will have a excess of potassium and will be excreting the excess already so if you were to happen to ingest cesium 137 or 134 you body would not be as likely to take it up as a nutrient that is was already trying to get rid of anyway…

                    Going to that same place with a potassium deficiency would guarantee the uptake of a LARGE amount of that poison, going there with a surplus of potassium in your body would stop the uptake of that poison.

                    So why do they say to eat POTASSIUM iodide tablets after a accident?

                      I'll explain my point one more time, very carefully.

                      Yes, HD, each radioisotope has a different half life. One of the cesiums has a half life of roughly 30 days. Strontium 90 has a half life of about 30 years.
                      Each respective half life does not vary. You are claiming that each of those respective half lives can speed up or slow down it's decay rate, depending on health and age.

                      No, each respective half life does not vary. Does not speed up or slow down.
                      You are confusing it with excretion from the body. Seems to be a favorite topic of yours. How's that supply of copralite crystals?

                      Your claims that the "experts" tell us radiation clears the body in a few weeks, would imply that if you're not deathly ill after two weeks have passed, your body has cleared the radiation. Dovetails with Woods Hole, doesn't it?

                      Cesium is a potassium analog…

                      The (natural) potassium connection is that potassium converts many combinations (through many factors/processes) of nutrients into calcium…

                      Ever wounder how a cow has huge bones and yet weans off of milk or any other direct calcium source of any consequence as a juvenile (never to drink it again)? Last time I checked it was from the combination of minerals in the grass they are designed to eat.

                      A cow doesn't drink or eat anything naturally that has a large amount of calcium in it and yet they grow huge dense bones rich in it right?

                      Even the k40 (naturally radioactive) in potassium is a known and proven part of the process of converting nutrients to calcium…

                      So if you replace natural potassium with cesium and both are radioactive but one is a nutrient and the other is a mined metallic poison and the body thinks it's potassium. You would have to conclude that cesium, while not decaying directly into calcium in the wild is a component of the bigger combination of ingredients that make up calcium in animals.

                      So yes cesium does decay into a component of calcium in the animal body.

                      I call that a yes! Cesium does decay into calcium but only through animal/human metabolism, but that probably brings up more questions than answers right?

                    • "Yes, HD, each radioisotope has a different half life. One of the cesiums has a half life of roughly 30 days. Strontium 90 has a half life of about 30 years. Each respective half life does not vary"

                      Correct a half life is a half life.

                      But that has nothing to do with how long is stays in your body…

                      That's the point and the topic of my discussion with you today…

                      If the bionerd stuff left her body in 2 weeks or less instead of hanging around in her orgins and bones for years is that better for her health? Answer? YES it's better!!!

                      Why did it get excreted so quickly? Because she was nutritionally aware and it passed right through instead of getting incorporated! it went through her like shit through a goose!

                      Why? She boosted her potassium intake through clean and natural bananas weeks before eating the apple and her body was dumping potassium in spades already!!!!!

                      So a little cesium just went the way that all the real potassium was going.

                      Right into the toilet through urine.

                      Cesium starts out as a heavy metal excuse for calcium from day one!

                      The fact that it's chemical makeup is a poison to start with hurts you…

                      When you ingest that crap and your body is deficient in that natural substance, that's when it hurts you, the fact that it will never stop hurting you is a side effect and has NOTHING to do with it suddenly breaking down and turning into something else.

                      What hurts you is your body thought it was a crypto currency for calcium and incorporated it into your tissues…

                      What happens after that happens? (your body got lied too and believed it?) is just scenery.

                      If your body is carrying around fake nutrients that are poisons and these imposers just keep poisoning you it really doesn't matter what they turn into because whatever it is, it's just going to be more poisons.

                      Then riddle me this trolling fool.

                      Ever seen a grown cow drink milk or eat calcium supplement tablets? So where did those huge bones come from? No milk from the time it weaned as a calf? No going to the drug store drive thru for calcium tablets.

                      Spalin it to me Lucy! Where did all that calcium come from to make those huge bones?

                      Little green men?

                      So where did all that calcium come from to make bones that weight more than you fully clothed with your boots on and a belly full of cheesburgers?

                      Tell us genius. Can't wait to hear it.

                      I'm not a new york city hotel owner, I'm a former ranch hand that has run horses worth more than you and 5 people you know.

                      So tell us o trolling one where do these huge bones come from? These animals start out small and wean off mothers milk small and then grow to a enormous sizes drinking no milk and eating no calcium tablets or bones of any kind.

                      Help me out there nay sayer troll, just where does all that calcium come from?

                      Apparently there is a reaction that causes calcium to be produced and assembled by the cow itself, now what could be involved in that. Could't have anything to do with potassium huh.

                      Apparently, and most characteristically, your mind is stuck once again, this time on milk is the only calcium source in nature.
                      And that cows have some magical mystery calcium production plant internal to only them.

                      Please, unfuck your mind.


                      "We’ve all heard we should drink milk or eat dairy products to boost our calcium levels. But in fact, the best sources of calcium come from the produce department—not the dairy department!

                      The reason is simple. Calcium is a mineral found in soil where it is then absorbed into the roots of plants. Animals (like cattle) get their calcium by eating these plants. So the real source of calcium comes from the earth itself—not the cows grazing on the plants.

                      In the end, whole plant foods such as green vegetables, beans, seeds and even fruits are rich in calcium; you can get all you need from a whole food plant-based diet without having to eat dairy products.

                      What’s more, getting your calcium from plant-based foods is far more efficient than getting it from dairy products. When you drink a glass of milk, 1/3 of the calcium is lost through urinary elimination. And the numbers are even worse for cheese – your body loses 2/3 of the calcium in cheese. By contrast, when you eat plant-based foods, your body can use up to 60% of their calcium content.

                      The short answer is calcium comes from dirt

                      Certainly not this:

                      It could be that Hippie Dog ran into a rather obscure but fascinating study of biological transmutation of elements.

They found more calcium in the chickens and eggs than existed in the feed. Not just chickens…seeds, crayfish and other biological organisms

                      Why did your urine go darker?
                      Wow simple and proven biological function tells the true tale.

                      So your urine got darker because you were dumping proteins through your kidneys.

                      Why? Because that tablet is only 7 to 10 percent effective no matter what.

                      Your stomach acid destroys over 70 percent of the active component of that tablet.

                      All that burnt up crap has to go somewhere.

                      And since your body cant use it, it is excreted through the kidneys and winds up in your urine.

                      So to combat this the manufactures put buffers into the tablet to destroy that effect and in doing so it destroys digestive acids by proxy. And by proxy of eliminating the acid you don't digest food as well leaving more unbroken down proteins in your blood serum that the body just can't use.

                      Where do these unbreakable and unusable proteins go? After passing through the liver several times your body gives up on them and then sends them to the kidneys and/or the colon to be excreted.

                      So any vitamin tablet you eat is less than 10 percent effective in actual blood serum and it's a chemical that is in fact fake and not derived from a natural source (99.9 percent of the time).

                      In fact if you stop taking all vitamin tablets today you will have constipation or diarrhea depending on what tablets you were taking and your body chemistry after (and I'll bet within) a week.

                    • So tablets in any form (any tablets) are less than 10 percent effective.

                      Where does the other 90 percent go?

                      to your kidneys or into your colon

                      No pills, no powders, no elixirs.

                      Do you get constipated or have loose stools after eating a pill?

                      Does your piss suddenly turn yellow?

                      That's the dumping of toxins and/ or unusable unbrokendown proteins from the digestive effects of buffers in the tablet(s) on your food digestive process and the broken down portion of the tablet you ate.

                      Try eating asparagus! Does your piss turn yellow and smell funny? Why? Because asparagus is a woody plant and your body can't use most of it so any part of it that ends up in blood serum that can't be utilized by the body is quickly excreted through the kidneys…

                      Goes back to the age old adage, ifn it's going to be useless and/or a burden, get it outta here quick…

                      Radioactive Potassium (K40) In Bananas Compared To Man Made Artificial Radioactive Heavy Metal Poisons Cesium, Plutonium, Uranium, Tritium And Iodine; Peeling Away The Mystery And Deception

                    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                      'Dr GoodHeart' at A Green Road makes an admirable stab at understanding the K-40 to cesium comparison conundrum. Unfortunately its not quite correct.

                      He mainly bases the argument on two ideas; that Cesium-137 is far more radioactive per gram and that its a heavy metal toxin.

                      These are not adequate arguments because the dose is not measured in mass but in radioactivity. So saying cesium is hugely more radioactive gives the impression there is a lot more radioactivity, but this is not the case. Everyone has a lot more radioactivity from K-40 than cesium except people near ground zero of an accident or bomb.

                      Then cesium is not really a heavy metal toxin. Its toxicity as an element is not high. One could eat many would-be-fatal doses of non radioactive cesium and not feel anything. In fact people do this intentionally. I would eat say 100 milligrams of non radioactive cesium that would kill 40 people if it were radioactive without fear.

                      The real answer is suggested by Bandazhevsky "Yuri I. Bandazhevsky, M.D.
                      The direct influence of 137Cs on the heart is due to its selective accumulation within the myocardial cells [which then messes up your heart metabolism]" So even though GoodHeart mislabeled it, at least he got it in the article.

                      I would say even Bandazhevsky doesnt know the entire reason a given quantity of radiation from cesium is so much worse than the same radiation from K-40. Its an ongoing study

          And the next time you pick up that milk jug think about the acceptable levels of puss allowed in the milk from the udder infections these cows get from being milked all the time with machines and the acceptable levels of antibiotics and hormones that pass through them into the milk…

          MMMmmmmmm. Milk….

          And we in fact know that milk does NOT do a body good…

          It causes coronary artery disease and the protein found in milk (casein)
          Is know to fuel cancer growth as well…

          Humans are the only animal that does not wean and routinely drinks another species milk…

            What do you cook that takes half a gallon of milk?

            • Wow DK The actual statement in writing right above your question was…

              "I don't drink and cook with more than a half gallon a month"

              A month is 30 days right? And I usually end up pouring allot of it out as I won't even use a half a gallon before it goes bad…

              So that less than a half a gallon is spread out over a month and some is always wasted too…

              Sometimes it's half the container that gets wasted…

              In other words I use as little milk as possible.

              You should read more slowly and/or more closely if you want to really know what's going on man…

                      I've avoided milk for most of the last 3-4 years or so. I'm going to use a bunch of dairy products now. I've been using more of it lately. I was hoping it would make me seem normal or more sociable.

                      Oh yeah another cool thing. The other day when I saw Trump speak for like a minute (G7 I guess), he was bitching about tariffs on canadian milk, he mentioned something like a 270% tariff.

                      He believed there should be no tariffs, proving that he's not only a hypocrite but he also wants to kill you with strontium.

                      What a total crock! It's proven to excelerate existing cancer, causes obesity and heart disease (the number one killers on the planet bar none) but we should just let em keep bringing it to market so cheaply that no one will ever stop using it?

                      Now HD, can you tell me why Trump would say that shit, considering shit like Nikki Haley, Scott Pruit, Rick Perry, more nuclear shit, more pollution, less regulation?

                      Because, I kinda don't understand, considering some of the things some people have said.

                    So if you asked me what is the effects of drinking a commercialized hormone, puss and pollution laden product I'll have some answers and comments for you…

                    If you ask me what some guy that was in the hotel business said about it I'll probably draw a blank…

                    Not only because I don't know but because I don't really care (just being honest).

                    Modern shelved cows milk is probably by all proven rights the most toxic and unhealthy thing around.

                    These are the things we need to know for ourselves. And if we stop buying it, they will clean up their act or be gone and many will as soon as that happens (yea right).

    "The National Nuclear Security Administration chose Triad National Security LLC as the winning bidder to manage Los Alamos National Laboratory, the birthplace of the atomic bomb. Comprised of Ohio-based Battelle Memorial Institute, Texas A&M University and the University of California, the team will begin taking over later this year.

    The contract — worth an estimated $2.5 billion a year — marks a big step as federal officials look to get the lab back on track after safety lapses and missed goals.

    The lab in recent years has mishandled plutonium and mistakenly shipped nuclear material to other federal facilities via a commercial cargo plane. It also inappropriately packaged waste that led to a radiation release and a nearly three-year closure of the nation's only underground nuclear waste repository.

    Criticism of the lab's safety record has intensified as the federal government pushes to restart production of plutonium cores for the nation's nuclear weapons arsenal."

    Bizarrely, HD made more sense than any of the people who replied to him in that other post there, imo. I couldn't read all of it/replies, too much pointless shit.

    Strontium vs calcium

    Variable excretion/absorption rates, differences based on saturation and health.
    Maybe even some mentions of poisoning or effects related to deficiency or relative occurrence of analogs when testing radioactive stuff would be nice.

    • slandermen Deadboy

      Let's say I'm in good health, been eating lots of coca leaf, moringa, sweet potato, I dunno, stuff like that.

      Okay, now you give me bunch of milk and shit with cesium and strontium in it. Chances are, my body would get rid of it quicker in general thatn for say, someone who has a diet that's already kinda cesium and strontium rich, or someone who's just generally malnourished.

      That alone, would likely mean quite a bit less radioactive exposure (internally), since the radiation is somewhat surprisingly, tied to unstable analogs and will likely be excreted more readily.

      At least, that's how I read some of it.

      • slandermen Deadboy

        "We used a newly developed technique that insolubilizes and visualizes K+ excreted from the gills to demonstrate that gill mitochondria-rich (MR) cells are responsible for K+ excretion in seawater-Acclimated Mozambique tilapia. To achieve a better understanding of the molecular mechanism of K+ excretion from the gills, we identified the cDNA sequences of some candidate molecules that may be involved in K+ transport. Of these candidate molecules, only a renal outer medullary K+ channel (ROMK) exhibited markedly upregulated mRNA levels in response to a high external K+ concentration. We found that ROMK expressed in the apical opening of MR cells was the main molecular pathway responsible for K+ excretion. Using the insolubilization technique, we further demonstrated the excretion of Cs+ and Rb+, which are known to be biochemical analogs of K+, through the K+ transport pathway in the gills of seawater tilapia. The activation of ROMK in the gill MR cells induced by K+ supplementation could eliminate unnecessary biochemical analogs of K+ more rapidly, possibly serving as an effective countermeasure against radiocesium in aquaculture. © 2013 The Editor(s) (if applicable) and the Author(s).

        • slandermen Deadboy

          Remember also that stable cesium by itself is toxic to plants (very likely not just) by interfering with potassium absorption.

          So yeah, there is legitimate concern with simply avoiding the analogs of calcium and potassium in general.

          Other things also affect excretion.

          "Acetazolamide (10 mg/kg, intraperitoneally) increases the urinary excretion of cesium-137 in the rat. Meralluride (6.8 mg of Hg per kilogram, subcutaneously) blocks the effect of acetazolamide on the cesium-137 excretion without any influence on the urine volume and pH of the urine. This indicates that acetazolamide increases the urinary excretion of cesium-137 by increasing its secretion through the renal tubule in the same manner as it increases the excretion of potassium and rubidium-86."

    "A minimum requirement for any form of political consent to onsite storage would be a clear commitment by the government to phase out all nuclear power by a fixed date, so that the final amount of waste can be determined and will not just keep growing, along with the burden on local people."

    • Jebus Jebus

      "Prof. von Hippel explained that plutonium disposal is a global problem, with more than half of the existent separated plutonium being produced as a result of civilian reprocessing, the rest produced for military purposes. Disposing of the plutonium that had been produced for weapons during the cold war has been a huge headache for the United States with planned disposal by burning it as MOX fuel in commercial reactors proving hugely expensive. America has all but abandoned its half-built MOX plant and is now looking towards the ‘dilute and dispose’ option."

    Westinghouse Awarded $5 Million from U.S. Department of Energy

    Westinghouse Electric Company announced today that it was awarded $5 million in funding from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E). The funding will be used to develop a self-regulating solid core block (SCB) that employs solid materials (instead of bulk liquid flow or moving parts) to inherently self-regulate the reaction rate in a nuclear reactor. The development of the SCB is a key component of Westinghouse’s eVinci TM micro reactor concept – a next-generation, very small modular reactor for decentralized generation markets.

                Boils down to the size of the cess pool dead zones we humans want.

                Animals have no say in the size of the cess pool dead zones created by man.

                I am thinking we humans want and desire a dead planet..that can be the only understanding based on our combined actions.

                  Yeah I was just considering how hypocritical that list is and the chances of those people/companies being able to help or even truly intending to help.

                  None of this promoted life on this planet..thus death of this planet..must be the human long term goal.

                    There is a learning curve..the key is understanding the impact of that chosen learning curve.

                    Thinking the planet cares not what we humans learn or if we ever learn…and/but other biological life/species living here … do care.

    I can't make this up.

    N.C. State University researchers are heading up a consortium that's just gotten $3.4 million from the federal government to develop control systems for nuclear power plants that lean more heavily on artificial intelligence.

    I guess there is no other choice…

      Actually, many plants have AI…'learning programing'. It follows your moves, learns how to anticipate. They have been working it 20-30 years.

      Bad idea for nukes, they'll have 2 guys on a shift, like everyone else.

          Haha, it is only as smart as it 'learned'.

          Looking around the bludot, not real comforting.

          One thing AI/BotBoy does not have is 'fear'. It is a bad thing.
          Good operators have a healthy dose of fear, might kill their crew, break expensive stuff, get fired, destroy the place, etc.

          The last project had voice command/response…no control by voice, but highly automated/tracked/recorded. Well over 100,000hp total rotating equipment.

          You could ask any weather current/forecast, any of over 1000 readings(temps,pressures,flows,vol.,etc), dial any support/boss/wife with video, a bunch of stuff.

          None of it necessary to run a tight operation.

    That last one missed.

    Top U.S. energy regulators declined to endorse the notion that power grids face a national emergency during a Senate hearing Tuesday, tacitly rebuffing President Donald Trump’s argument to prop up struggling coal and nuclear plants.

    The five members of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission were testifying before the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee when asked by New Mexico Democrat Martin Heinrich if the decline in coal and nuclear electricity is putting the nation’s security at risk.

    “Do any of you believe that in the wholesale power markets we are facing an actual national security emergency at the moment?” Heinrich said. “Any one able to answer that with a ’yes?”’

    All five regulators remained silent.

    "The concept of a floating nuclear reactor is not a new. The United States was the first country to deploy a floating nuclear power plant in 1968. […] The Sturgis was to supply electrical power to the Panama Canal. The Sturgis operated only eight years before it was permanently closed as too expensive to maintain. In 1971, the U.S.-based Westinghouse Corporation briefly revived the concept building a central manufacturing facility in Florida for 1200 MWe Pressurized Water Reactors using a notoriously thin shelled containment structure. The reactor was to be placed on a barge and towed out to sea up where it would be moored off the coastline beyond controversial emergency planning zones. New Jersey utilities were the first to enthusiastically embrace the plan without fully appreciating the unique concerns the concept added to already apparent siting issues from land based reactors. Ship collisions, barges sinking, fishing ground impacts and a host of regulatory concerns clashed with national and international law and inter-agency authority including the US Coast Guard. The U.S. Government Accounting Office issued a report criticizing federal regulators for not even analyzing the impacts of meltdown through the barge on the ocean environment. It added up to failure with no utility orders, the unwillingness of states to site facilities in coastal waters and the failure of a government bailout to finance construction. "

    What a worry wart I am. I really need to lighten up. Think I'll throw a space blanket on the living room floor and build a bonfire there. Federal regulators said it was safe. At least while they were drunk and partying on all that cash I gave em.

    Yessir, just enjoying a little bonfire… kids are asleep upstairs. Nothing to worry about.

  • Volcano stuff has been a bit distracting, exciting stuff. I watched some old videos from the 1959 Eruption which was even more intense, but didn’t have the thousands of earthquakes that Hawaii now sees.

    Funny though….the “coverage” no on news seems like a poor second place compared to 1959 coverage that I saw. Back then EQ guy AND video guys were going into the “red zone” where they weren’t supposed to go to get real information.

    In 1959 they had fountains often 700 feet and sometimes 1200 feet. 2018 seeing more like 160 to 240 foot fountains.

    This 2018 YouTube is some real slice of life stuff. Thirdphaseofthemoon are kind of wacky “alien” guys but it’s cool seeing some people doing real reporting.

    Global warming caused scientists to create ozone-destroying chemicals. Or was it domoic acid? Reduction in ozone layer increases UV radiation, which damages phytoplankton and reduces fish production. WAIT! I thought that radiation was harmless like baby bananas and it's everywhere and we need more of it….not really

    volcanos… does that mean dinosaurs are coming back? Well, there was Hillary and Trump, so yeah, stupidosauruses

    Five months after disaster caused the triple meltdown at the plant, Yamazaki detected 20,100 becquerels of cesium per square meter in mud collected at the mouth of the Kyu-Edogawa river, which empties into Tokyo Bay.

    In July 2016, the study team detected a maximum 104,000 becquerels of cesium per square meter from mud collected in the same area of the bay, Yamazaki said.

    "Nationally, pediatric cancer rates are rising. The National Cancer Institute estimates one out of 285 children in the United States will be diagnosed with cancer before their 20th birthday. And it’s not just cancer and autism on the rise. Auto-immune disease numbers are also climbing, according to national researchers.

    We are living in a toxic world that could be making all of us sick, particularly unborn fetuses, infants, and children whose organs and immune systems are not fully developed.

    On a daily basis we are exposed to a toxic soup of chemicals, and for those living near a nuclear plant, daily doses of low-level radiation of the kind released by atomic bombs. No level of continuous radiation can be considered safe, according to the National Academies of Science."
