    Experts: Fukushima ‘off-scale’ lethal radiation level infers millions dying
    August 5, 2011
    “…If noticing unusual amounts of hair falling out, confusion, nose bleeds or other odd symptoms typical of radiation sickness, it might be due to the United States’ record high levels of radiation, now multiple times acceptable safety limits not only on the west coast, but also in other locations around the nation. ….”

      8 main radiation sickness signs (Slideshow)
      http://www.examiner.com/human-rights-in-national/eight-horrid-radiation-sickness-signs
      “1. Nausea and vomiting are typical early symptoms of radiation sickness. The higher the dose of irradiation, the faster nausea and vomiting appear – and the worse the overall prognosis. Irradiation is the process by which an item is exposed to radiation.
      “2. Nose bleeding: Noes bleeds often occurs with radiation sickness. Blood of the throat, bleeding gums or blood from the rectum are signs that radiation has impacted the body.
      “Bleeding bruises occur, sometimes hematemesis.
      “Bleeding is caused by the radiation reducing the number of platelets that clot blood in the body.
      “3. Diarrhea, sometimes bloody: Burning, or “hits” are common.
      “Hits” along the body’s cells rapidly reproduce, including in the digestive tract cells. Irradiation causes ritation of the digestive organs that can cause diarrhea, sometimes bloody diarrhea.
      “4. Severe sunburn appearance: Skin exposed to radiation can become red and covered with blisters as though strongly sunburned. In some cases, ulcers appear and in others, the skin may climb in round pattern.
      “5. Hair loss: One of the most common signs of radiation poisoning is hair loss, as cancer survivors note soon after radiation treatment.
      “Radiation damages hair follicles so people being radiated usually oblyseet two or three weeks.
      “In some cases, the hair loss is irreparable.
      “6. Fatigue and exhaustion: Radiation sickness causes weakness that feels similar to the flu.
      It is often mistaken for “having the flu.”
      “Decreasing the number of red blood cells results in anemia and increased risk of fainting.
      “7. Mouth sores: Radiation sickness causes ulcers on lips or and in the mouth.
      Similar ulcers occur inside the esophagus, stomach and intestines.
      “8. Infection susceptibility: Radiation acts on white blood cells responsible for resisting infections….”

      Anne that is a GREAT find! Listen here friends,…..WOWSERS!–

      “”Let’s wipe the Tokyo Electric Power Company and the General Electric officials and policy makers off the face of the Earth, as they manifestly deserve,” asserted Dr. Busby when addressing the Japanese this week.

      Thirty-nine year nuclear industry veteran Arnie Gunderson of Fairwinds stated Tuesday,”There will continue to be enormous spikes for at least ten years.”

      Dr. Busby advocates not only independent studies of the nuclear catastrophe. He received a resounding applause when he told the Japanese people this week that in his opinion, scientists who said this accident was not a problem must be prosecuted.

      “Many nuclear scientists said it was not a problem when the knew it was a serious accident. People who listened to those scientists and did not run away when they should have. Because of that, people will die.”

      Busby explained that the World Health Organization is tied to the Nuclear Industry so their research is bogus. In studying Fukushima, the World Health Organization expects to find no effects “and so that’s what they’ll find,” he said.

      No effects? While no records of human baby deaths, ask breeders of animals if they are losing or “missing” litters or live births. For some reason pet owners will be much more vocal about loss of puppies or kittens or litters..farmers as well. Just Saying..

    Good morning. Last week, I was hiking near the ocean just north of the Golden Gate bridge and ran into a bobcat on the trail. He/she looked pretty young and extremely thin – I just stood still and watched for a few minutes as it appeared to be looking for prey and ignoring me. I learned these cats usually mate in March with kittens born around May, so it’s my guess this was in it’s first year. Maybe it wasn’t good at hunting yet. It was about six hours after sunrise which is late for them to be out and usually they’re very elusive, right? So what happens next is this guy starts walking right at me with a swagger that made me freeze and then bumps right into me sniffs me too! I was totally shocked. This is very strange behavior for bobcats far as I know, and I believe it may have had a severe mental problem in my estimation. Possibly radiation related during gestation? Eating lots of cesium rodents too? I don’t know, but this was one weird cat.

      Everything I’m reading shows animals can lose their fear of humans if they have rabies.

      I would wonder if impairment from radiotoxicity can do the same thing, as I think was written in one of the Ene posts. I can’t remember.

        Yeah, I don’t want to get close to that cat again. :(

        Another interesting thing about my garden. I remember telling Risabee my tomatoes were done in early November, but I was wrong. I left one plant out there, and never watered it kinda hoping for a some fried green tomatoes at some point. Well we got hardly any rain this year, the plant is still thriving and has been producing nice red tomatoes all winter. That’s different for us around here.

    I also read that near urban areas the bobcats can act that way:
    “Bobcats that claim territories near urban areas have demonstrated much less fear of humans over time and in some cases have been known to hunt in plain sight of and in close proximity to people.”

    If there weren’t such elevated radiation levels to put the blame on, I’d be more tempted to attribute it to something else, of course. So if you think they’re acting strange, from what you know in your own area, I’d think they probably are.

    I'm doing ok, minus a few coughs in the freezing air..? However, I've noticed a number of ambulances lately at a fitness center, a DC subway station, and tonight when passing a McDonald's restaurant… (can't say that MickeyD's would ever be the safest bet)…But, it just seems a little unusual to see that so many people are having such trouble in public places???… Any readings on NoVA, VA, DC, or MD?? Any new readings from the EPA??!!!

    Has anyone else noticed a greater number of ambulances picking up collapsed people lately????… Is it just my imagination?…hmmmm.

      Well, at least 6 people got ill at the recent taping of American Idol which aired yesterday. Posts are here:
      http://tinyurl.com/76t6vxd – my play-by-play
      http://tinyurl.com/6pta2kw – update

      Maybe this means people are just getting so sick that they are collapsing in public. I mean, the one young woman on American Idol passed out right on stage. It makes sense to me that if most people can't sense the contamination in the food as they go, and they keep on accumulating it, it could just hit them one day. The other thing that I think may be happening is the radiation is simply knocking them out now. When I would eat butter and certain other foods in my worst days, I would get "knocked out" in the form of a sudden absolute overpowering need to sleep, and would not wake up for an hour or two.

      So imagine if that same feeling hits some of these people while they are out in public, and they can't lie down. They may very well just fall down or go unconscious or lethargic wherever they are.

      Bad as McDonald's is, I've never gotten sick from my rare consumption of their food, post-Fuku (though I'm certain I would have if I'd eaten any dairy, barring a slice of American "cheese" on a burger, which I skip these days).

      However, recently I may be getting very slight symptoms from certain foods that were previously ok for me. McDonald's was eaten on one of those days, but it was very mild.

        So I'm avoiding all potatoes now, even deep fried which I previously considered low-risk.

        (I don't need to hear from the usually-well-meaning health nuts how fries are bad for the health, I already know. :P My point is that I took my own experience and Chernobyl research showing processed potatoes are less radioactive, to mean fries were less radioactive than fresh potatoes.)

        I think the processed food "pass" for less radiation risk without the effort is beginning to expire. Then I will be forced to depend on detoxification and remediation of produce, or start getting sick again.

        The beef from McDonald's and some other fast food joints has a large proportion coming from Australia and New Zealand, so it might not be as bad as other meats. But it's a crap shoot, you don't know if your burger is from Australia or America.

    Hundreds Of Dead Birds Fall On I-95

    Hundreds of dead birds rain down on I-95, blindsiding drivers in Howard County. Now Natural Resources officials are trying to figure out what caused the mass deaths…

    “I travel this all the time. I never seen anything like this before,” said one driver.

    The Maryland Department of Natural Resources says the birds are starlings. It appears they ran into traffic. While that act is unusual, authorities say starlings themselves are common in this area.

    “Something like this, I can’t think of any precautionary measures. A flock of birds running into traffic, it doesn’t happen too often,” said DNR Wildlife biologist Patricia Allen.

      I have apx. 14 molly fry, of the 14 about a third of them have a spinal deformity. Not a smooth curve like the fish with TB, but a sharp "kink" they almost look like check marks. They are growing, swimming and eating as well as the normal ones. My parents all appear normal and without deformity. Any thoughts as to what would have caused this? I am a hobbiest, and plan to keep them as long as they are healthy.
      FYI I have already seperated my males and plan on seperating the fries as soon as I can sex them. I do not plan on any more breeding, atleast not from this grouping.

      Dear Still: Interesting on the breeding industry background. The participants at ENE have many interests and these make interesting people in my opinion. I'm very grateful. I have friends here in California who breed tropical birds, which is funny because it sounds like they are bred and have no choice in the matter. In reality though, in the case of psiticines they do the deciding and years of little breeding activity could just be for no reason at all, but they just don't wanna. There is no such thing as a tropical bird puppy mill or the like. Anyway, breeding for tropical birds on the West Coast is also way down so far this year, but we'll know better in a month or two as that's when the usual peak occurs for breeders of tropical birds. I wonder if breeders of other birds used in research, say of doves, if there is such an avocation, have noticed any changes.

      As to the blistering on the hands and other rashes, I guerilla garden in street medians along about 5 blocks here in North Oakland, California. This year, I'm experiencing more problems with my palms blistering (no jokes from the peanut gallery!) and the texture of my skin is funny, more leathery on my palms for some reason. Some of the blistering lasted about 8-10 days, which is unusual for me for when I do get a blister from brushing a cactus the wrong way when weeding or planting. Also, and I've seen this discussed here and there before over the past year, I've tried a variety of soaps and definitely have a feeling like I just can't get my hands completely clean since March last year and it's worse when I've been out gardening beyond the usual reasons. Of course, in urban soils there may be herbicide residues, lead and other things that could cause these symptoms; but just trying to add to the testimonials. And to add to the purely anecdotal, just one more thing, a Chihuahua mix that my nearest neighbor just got several months ago has something called "Cherry Eye". What's this?

    I went to the eye doctor… no cataract or retinal tear, he said it was age-related posterior vitreous detachment. I told him that it happened all of a sudden, he said it is always like that. So it looks like I dodged a bullet. It has gotten better the last 2 weeks or so, it's mainly discomfort at night, and the vision in the right eye is a little cloudy. Not near as bad as it was.

      Dear Bobby, if you know medical doctors like I know Doctors, they like to make everything seem normal to patients, which is often but not always–maybe not quite usually appropriate in my opinion. This may be the case in the posterior vitreous detachment diagnosis you describe. Remember, as you already probably do that you have every right to double and triple check everything Drs. say against your own research.

      Dear Still, I agree. Drinking bottled water (no source of fossil water where I live and I'm not wealthy enough to import it from Libya or SW Egypt) since March of last year, and I haven't had a cold/flu (touch wood!)so far this winter season. I normally get sick over the winter prior to 3/11 about 3 or 4 times a winter. Also here avoiding all seafood, mushrooms and all root crops pretty well since 311 or a little thereafter. I'm having some success avoiding meat and dairy; but not as much (total avoidance) as I would be prudent given the radionuclide bioaccumulation problem. I'm on a new thyroid treatment since August and my energy has improved a lot since then; but am not sure if it's from ingesting less toxic food than before.

    Scary news from Canada, many people I know are suddenly–VERY suddenly–falling ill. Not minor things either. Terminal cancer, several people abruptly developing heart conditions–all diagnosed in December 2011. One person died of a heart attack and had no previous history of the disease (heard this from a friend, who knew the victim.) All of these people are in their early fifties.

      Dear Milk and Cheese: (Your screen name makes me hungry!)
      Greater incidents of radiation related diseases due to FukuDai fallout in Canada wouldn't be surprising given the usual orientation of the jet stream in those latitudes, even given the wild and wooly departures from the usual jet stream tracks due to anthropogenic thermal maximum.

    I wonder about the timing of these articles where the main message is that Canadian cancer rates are increasing but it is due to old age. There are about 20 articles like this posted in past month saying the same thing. Maybe trying to deflect attention away from any other primary cause such as radiation?

    My Kitty in the Coal Mine had a 'benign' tumor removed just as all the humans were starting to get sick…it was an unusual condition for an older animal,but was not cancer.
    The person who developed terminal cancer was not a smoker. The heart attack sufferer had no warning, no pains, just died. This was in January.
    We have had little snow here but it has rained on occasion.

      There is a horrible news story on the Fukushima Diary about two high school children in Japan dying of cardiac arrest (infarct). One of them trained on a playground that was heavily irradiated. If this is happening in other countries besides Japan…

  • Even 'deformed' babies deserve life, love

    Date published: 2/28/2012

    THE General Assembly is considering House Bill 62, which would end state funding of abortions for low-income women who choose to end their pregnancies after prenatal diagnoses that indicate that their babies "would be born with a gross and totally incapacitating physical deformity or mental deficiency."

    I worked ouside all last summer in all weather this http://twitpic.com/8qfgjr showed up on my hip where the waistband of my pants rides in August. The photo was just taken. It measures 15 millmeters across and a pit of a couple mm is forming in the center. I have had many serious injuries in my lifetime but have never had discoloration for this long. It seems like somthing is continually killing cells, it never really changes much. I have always healed faster than most folks??

      concern1,

      Of course you are concerned. Can you get to a dermatologist? Maybe you could post over on the discussion thread, too. I think that not as many people come to this thread, but I do think that there are people on enenews with medical backgrounds. I am sorry that you have this! Here's to a speedy recovery!

    The bodies were found by a sanitation worker Tuesday morning.

    I hope this is nothing,…BUT,….I just got hit with one drop of rain while taking trash out,…and it STUNG. Now I have a raised red patch there,..that has lost it's first few layers of skin. It does not hurt like a burn,…but the raindrop is eating my skin.

    We have the EXACT same FOG shit here today in Cali at 1800 foot level. This is something guys! :-(

        OMG! I am really having to work with mine,…it is burning a hole in my finger! It's blistered in the thickest blister I've ever seen! It weeps constantly! The skin all around it,…even traveling both directions up my hand, and further down my finger,…looks like blood poisoning almost! It's hot to the touch,….and my roommates has one on his face and lip!

        This made a believer out of him. He didn't care when I was rotting away,…NO, couldn't be FUKU,…but NOW? Yup, he says the thing on his lip/face was a water drop laced with FUKU HOT TOTTIES! :-(

      Hey guys, don't let that stay on. Even if you can't scrub off until dry still do it. If it's bad, I'll put apple cider vinegar on it (warning, stings like several dirty words), let that dry, then use calendula ointment. If I catch it in time, calendula will clear it up before it goes to the lower layers and blistering stage. The first time I didn't realize it, didn't scrub and omg.. I've gotten 3 more spots since from overspray but they weren't bad from catching it quickly. Hope it clears up quickly for you!

    Yes, my 3.5 pound chihuahua has a spot on her head where the rain hit her too yesterday. All the hair is gone, and it is just a small rash. My finger is bubbling where the raindrop hit me this morning. I rubbed the first two or three layers off washing up. Now the new skin below is blistering. Absolutely no pain. Freakin' surreal-to be sure.

    Here's another 'weird' thing. My roommate came home yesterday, and I saw him digging a small hole. He said it was a dead squirrel out on our long driveway. I said Radiation,…he just laughed at me. But,…it really bothers me. If it were SICK,….or OLD, as my roommate says,.(because it did not have a single mark on it!)..wouldn't it have died in it's sickbed? How many dead squirrels have you seen,…other than in the road? They don't die for no bloody reason out on their morning munch!

    We've had dead birds, geese,…

    Like eyechix said on her AMAZING video,…..this thing has SPREAD so bloody much faster than even the most 'excitable' among us could imagine!!!

      Hello StillJill, Time to stay out of the rain, please be safe. I have been talking alot with my wife about this fukushitty mess. She has been reluctant to even listen to me relay info from enenews. She came home from work last night and floored me with; "3 young ladies had misscarriges where I work, two of them have healthy children already." This is happening now!

      Let us be kind, one to another, for we are each of us together in our pain!

      Dear Still: Another, "in-the-garden" story here you're inspiring. I found a dead Opossum in a friend's garden. It had no marks on it showing any obvious signs of attack or run-in with motorized vehicle. Of course, a lot of things could have happened to it without leaving marks. I found it in an odd place, kind of out in the open on the driveway (These friends are traveling in the Philippines on holiday–no one ran over it in the driveway anyway. I have no car and was just there watering donation plants for my volunteer gardens) behind the house, near a vegetable garden I put in for them last year. I grew up in the country and am very aware of nature in both urban and rural settings. I've never seen this sort of thing though it's hard to express what's odd about it to non-nature people. When I first found the Possum, it appeared to be playing dead the way they do; but it turned out to be actually dead; even though it outwardly looked robust, of good coloration and weight and apparently vigorous in life despite it's being dead.

    I would have chalked up the deformed Sheephead to bite injuries recieve when they were fry but the odds of catching two fish with the same type of old injury, on the same day are astronomical.
