Fukushima City mother’s letter to the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR), translated by journalist Mari Takenouchi and published by Save Kids Japan on Sept. 24, 2013: […] 2 years after the accident, members of my family had deteriorated health all at once.  We continued to have stuffed throat with phelm, could not stop dry coughing […] the doctor couldn’t tell the cause of our symptoms [… he] said that there are many patients who show the same symptom with unknown causes. My child began to complain pain in his foot bones and I heard many people including children and adults have the same […] I myself had bone pains […] After that, my son and I had continued naucea [sic] and headaches.  My son had lowered blood pressure and bloody urine, too. My family moved out of Fukushima in July.  One month afterwards, we all became better […] there is a sharp increase of people who show the same symptoms. There is a much increase of children who has prolonged nose bleeding […] people who died of acute myocardial infarction is increasing. […] Both children and adults have been suffering tremendously. […]

    There you have it. Mysterious symptoms with no logical explanation. Those boots were made for walking and that's what they've should've done. They should have just kept on a walkin. If it were me I would've run.

      Interesting how recovery is possible. This must be looked into very closely.

      It is a crime against humanity that children are still living in Fukushima. My family has already been afflicted with fatigue, ulcers, new autoimmune diseases, which flare when the jet stream is overhead.

      We are in California and Bobby1 is on the East Coast. North America is being contaminated, and as the corium fissions in the open air, downwinders are hurt.

      We need to act and get those innocent people out of Fukushima. Please, let's get them somewhere safer.

      Fukushima Mother’s Plea to U.N.: Children and adults are suffering tremendously — Sharp increase in bloody urine, bone pain, more — Doctor says many have similar symptoms with unknown causes — Family’s health deteriorated all at once, recovered soon after moving

      "I had the bloody urine in 2011. Lots of reports of joint pain… radioisotopes collect in the joints. There is also fibromyalgia pain and discomfort, which is caused by radioactivity acting as an excitotoxin in the central nervous system. This second kind of pain can be worse than the first, which is debilitating.

      Heart failure is now a pandemic in Japan. Usually it’s sudden death from a heart attack. It must be happening in America too, at a lower rate of incidence."

      This is not intended to be a reply to any individual. Cisco I know you are an activist .. Bo you are nice too.

      But they are gaining on you. After a sympathetic window of opportunity by MSM in the dangers of Fukushitty .. esp hilighted w 2020 Tokyo Olympics decision ..

      And w due respect to the hard work of Ene Admin ..

      Nothing posted here changed anything .. did it? And the pronukes are gaining back the ground and closing the hole. This cause is almost pretty much back to square one and pushing uphill again.

      I am really don't care abt changing anyone here anymore into making a couple of phone calls, writing a couple of emails against nukes .. lost that zeal .. finally ..

      But attacking Syria was a 180 in large part bc of overwhelming constituent response to govt in the negative.

      Who knows??

      But 0 plus 0 still equals 0.

      Take care good souls.

      • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

        kez, nothing posted here changed anything? Im largely in agreement, except we dont know the reach, since Arnie and other players read ENEnews. For your other assertion, that constituent response averted war, its not likely that is the case. If you dig deeper you would find the real reasons, and you could start out with the William Engdahl links, some real news network, and build on it.

        Activism is essential. Did you do these things; remove money from Bank of America and others? Trade and barter? Boycott all big corporations like big chemical, big agri biz, big pharma? Start a garden, ride a bike? You have to starve them out, its the only way. Otherwise its self righteous ignis fatuus. Who is the real activist, making changes you can believe in? People who judge others as hypocrites would abhor being one, even unwittingly

        • kez

          Code .. the comments reach is zero .. if you think Arnie et al are hanging on your comments here you're nuts.

          And quit challenging me on my lifestyle. You know shit abt my energy .. water .. banking .. use .. I have a very low footprint and conservative mindset.

          I will bet you 100 to one my energy bill is lower than yours.

          But that isn't the point and none of your damn business ..

          AND A TOTAL RED HERRING. And you're just trolling now ..

          Good God .. back in bizarro land.

          Dearest DR .. sorry .. fail. Shaking the dust off.

          And you don't really fucking care .. you are just trolling. Did I write this to you? No ..

            Kez, you are probably right about the reach…and a reminder for me to quit my own wasting of energies…

            For the rest of your post it seems reactionary, and frankly missing the point, which is that you consistently hold a vitriolic attitude for your fellow bloggers here implying that they are inactive, ineffective and irrational. You want activism and In return Im giving my idea of effective action, which doesnt hinge upon pleas to the wolves in the sheep corral. To each his own, but I would think you could see at least some value in my assertions

        Kez, Im posting this link to Engdahls nice piece, which despite your sour view of the person suggesting it, you might find interesting, even useful, when trying to grasp the forces at work regarding Obama, Syria, and petitions

        http://www.engdahl.oilgeopolitics.net/print/Putin%20Chess.pdf

        The stakes in this geopolitical chess game are nothing less than survival first of Syria as a sovereign
        nation, whatever its flaws and defects. More, it ultimately involves the survival of Iran, Russia and
        China as sovereign nations together with the other BRIC states Brazil, India and South Africa. Longer
        term, it involves the matter of survival of civilization as we know it and avoidance of a world war that
        would decimate the world population not by tens of millions as seventy years ago but likely this time
        by billions.

        • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

          Date of article: 21 July 2012 . As with any article, only one side of the geopolitical dispute is given. Since then 100,000 Syrians have been killed by Assad's regime, and Hillary Clinton is no longer Secretary of State.

          I'm personally a pacifist and against use of depleted uranium, pure uranium, and other nuclear technology and other weapons of mass destruction. And I'm definitely against globalization. I'm just pointing out that world affairs are never so simple.

          Both China and Russia have imperialist ambitions and are actively promoting nuclear proliferation. There are no good guys here. And as usual innocent populations are being decimated.

          • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

            anne, the origin of syrian gassing is not certain, but there are other large issues. Are you familiar with Paul Craig Roberts?

            "When obama gets on the moral high horse about deaths in Syria or Nairobi, his hypocrisy is astounding.
            …When the world looks at Washington, it cannot differentiate Washington from the dictatorships that Washington attributes to other countries. The Washington regime has declared that it is above both law and Constitution and possesses the power to detain citizens indefinitely and to murder them without due process of law. These powers comprise the necessary and sufficient conditions for dictatorship.

        • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

          I don't think the survival of civilization is the primary motivation of nuclear states. Certainly nuclear technology is destroying all civilization and all life.

          • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

            anne I dont disagree. The point is rather that the stakes are much higher than the terrorist or dictator theme which has been used systematically in the middle east encroachment. Forestalling large or even global war supersedes many smaller geopolitical motives. Dont forget the U.S. is a nuclear state, the one that is threatens to bomb others if they develop nuclear. Disregarding right or wrong, its at least clearly hypocritical. The U.S. has good qualities, but was corrupted

        • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

          What you fail to mention is that Russia, Iran, China, and Syria are totalitarian states with huge human rights abuses including abuse of women and state control of the media. The US has problems but there is much more freedom here and freedom brings greater tolerance of minorities and incentives and ownership which bring about a higher standard of living for all people in the society.

          • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

            anne, what you say about human rights is true. You mistake what Engdahl says for what I say. Engdahl is good though. I agree that the U.S. is, or at least has been among the more enlightened states, if you could use the term. But we sure have been engaging in a lot of wars, didnt you notice? And for what reason? Its likely some of the powers that orchestrate these events are not bound to one country, thus international politics can no longer be clearly polarized as you suggest

            "So the biggest barrier to ridding the Middle East of chemical weapons is not Syria or Russia, or even technically Israel, it is actually the US. That is not a rhetorical flourish, it is literally the outcome of a resolution proposed by Syria in 2003 when it was a non-permanent member of the Security Council, but ultimately abandoned at the threat of the US exercising its veto. American exceptionalism continues to justify even more American exceptionalism.

    It is a crime against humanity to have children living in Fukushima. Thank you for posting this letter here, Admin.

    I feel so much better just when the jet stream moves away. San Francisco has been in the path of the jet stream for most of the last three weeks. Even the highly energetic in my family have been wilting. Today we are supposed to be having a break finally, but it is back tomorrow.

    http://squall.sfsu.edu/crws/jetstream.html
    http://www.weatherstreet.com/states/gfsx-300-forecast.htm

    I have even dreamed about driving around with the steering wheel in one hand and the jet stream forecast in the other, but moving does seem like an enormously good idea. The jet stream covers all of the United States, though, favoring different areas in different seasons. 🙁

    • HoTaters HoTaters

      NoNukes, I'm also very fatigued once the jet stream has been overhead for about 12 hours or longer. The fatigue is most noticeable about one day after it rains, or after heavy cloud cover.

      I've said this before (and will say it again) at the risk of sounding like a nut job.

      Whenever the jet stream is overhead, or there have been heavy releases from Fukushima, the chemtrail activity is unusually heavy in my area. I'd swear TPTB deliberately cause it to rain out the maximum amount of radiation on our heads. Seriously, I've been shaking my head for years, now, in disbelief.

      It has happened too many times, now, to be mere coinkydink.

      Watch, look, observe. See for yourself if ti's true. Can't help saying — that has been my observation. The heavy chem-ing has happened 4-5 days after major releases (fires, plumes, etc.) at Fukushima several times, now.

      So call me crazy, but I'm wondering if there's a "soft kill: operation underway. Dear G _ _, I hope it's not true. But I don't think my eyes are lying to me. See for yourself if there seems to be any cause and effect in your area.

      I live about 1 hour inland from the S.F. Bay.

      • HoTaters HoTaters

        The only other explanation I can come up with is by increasing cloud cover, they're somehow mitigating the effects of the radiation. But that just doesn't seem logical to me.

        Yeah, mega corporate facism, and the U.N. is one of the chief orchestrators in implementing it.

        Look up the Agenda 21 population and land use map, and tell me if you still think it's a "conspiracy theory." Note where future population centers remain. It's in the UN's own white papers, not just some hokey thing someone came up with ….

        And check out the "Trans Pacific Partnership" if you don't already understand where all of this is headed ….

        • HoTaters HoTaters

          I expect to catch flack for these comments But seriously, but be careful about poking sticks at it until you know whether or not the snake is alive. The U.N. can say blah, blah, blah (legalese and economic gibberish) all they want, but the Agenda 21 land use maps say it all.

          • Ho Taters, the sad fact is whatever their agenda is its clear they are not telling us the truth and are hiding the danger and underplaying danger of Fukushima. You can argue whether it is due to panic control or to simply poison all foolish not to run away. But whatever its clear that rising cancer rates are not a concern, transparency is nil and they have chosen short term preservation of their precious economic engine over long term health of the planet and the common good of the people. It is sad, Ho Taters that your position is reasonable.

        • NoNukes NoNukes

          HoTaters,

          I'm sorry that you have been fatigued too. Since we had record making hail in San Francisco right when the initial Fukushima plumes were overhead, there does seem to be a connection.

          What I don't understand about the idea that Fukushima is part of Agenda 21, is why would they want to destroy the dolphins, the trees, the plankton that produces the oxygen that they need to survive? Why wouldn't they just put something in our drinking water, etc., that would mainly effect humans alone? This seems like an idiotic way to get rid of people, when it is contaminating the entire environment for millions of years, if the atmosphere can survive the assault.

    How can the U.N., which was fully informed about the Fukushima disaster, the WHO, the IAEA, and this list just keeps going..DOE..FDA… How can these corrupt organizations be exposed, and if they are, what can be done?

    It seems that no matter how many protesters in the street, it makes no difference.

    We need to take back the farm land from big agri-biz, take money out of the bank, instigate a system where people vote WHERE their tax money is spent, not just the revolting revolving door of fascist corp-gov-wall st criminals. Michio Kaku said theres plenty of money, but the Pentagon has it. Believe this; the lack of response from the U.N. is not because they didnt recieve the memo, the petition! Rather, look into world geopolitics, mega fascism

    Clearly, petitions are not having the desired effect! Women and children are bleeding out and these organizations, each and every one,…do nothing, say nothing. Is this alarmist hyperbole, irrational conspiracy theory? If so, why, after over two years is the U.N. and the rest silent as mothers protest in the streets?

    A friend of mine had a close friend that died yesterday. The person who died was having trouble breathing for days, and then his heart just stopped. I wonder if it has anything to do with radiation from Fukushima making its way to the United States?

      What is reality?
      He goes off on a little time and space talk..something about..he is not exactly the same as he was a second ago..there is no reality.
      Then he goes on and on about augmented reality..become one with the machine ..etc.
      He..IMHO..specializes in sci-fi dehumanization techniques.

      He would rather have the world watching the sky for a cataclysmic event..than face reality here on Earth.

      Seek it out..before it is beyond grasp.

        I get a kick out of Michio and that is his job and he also wants to sell books, yet he has brought up some very interesting topics for discussion. The future is coming whether any of us like it or not and it can be a good one or a bad one and it will depend on what lines these brainiacs decide to cross if we civilians allow them too.

        The discovery process is ongoing and the funnel of knowledge is growing exponentially with the use of computers that have the ability to converge new discoveries via brain/research data mining. I think he has let the cat out of the bag on many areas that the "powers to be" want the direction of the world to go in, in our future, and with that said humans had better wake up and figure out where they are going/planning/taking us.

    I was surprised to learn of the 1000s of people in Japan and other countries who are using the SafeCast.org radiation detector kit, the 'bGeigieNano' ($450) and the ready-to-use $1000 'bGeigie', to become aware of firsthand and record the rad levels in their home vicinities and nearby saturated areas. For broader recordings they have attached the monitor to $400 hexacopters and are able to bring back recoded rad levels of several acres or more which could not reasonably be done on foot using handhelds.

    Recently they announced their SafeCast App for iPhones showing their recorded readings and related maps of rad level changes and movements for Japan and other national areas: the governments who do not want us public to become aware of the fatal danger they and their nuclear regulatory cabals, and their nuclear corporate patrons have brought upon us, are rumored to be formulating laws making u.s. drone sales and possession illegal, so we are acquiring our detector-carrying drone helos now:
