The Tribune, Jan 5, 2017 and updated Jan 9, 2017 (emphasis added): UCUT study finds trace amounts of radiation in migratory salmon Columbia River —  In early December, a number of news agencies reported seaborne radiation from Japan’s Fukushima Nuclear plant was detected in the Pacific Ocean along on the West Coast. The plant… is feared to still be contaminating the ocean. The impact of the radiation in the Columbia River—and on migratory salmon that spend their developmental years in the Pacific—is still relatively unknown, but recent studies point to causes for concern. Last year, the Okanagan Nation Alliance found Cesium-134, the so-called fingerprint of Fukushima, in sockeye that had migrated up the Okanogan River to British Columbia. Now, a study by Upper Columbia United Tribes has found trace amounts of radiation in Columbia River sockeye as well as Chinook salmon, UCUT biologist Marc Gauthier said Tuesday to the Colville Business Council’s Natural Resource Committee… In the Columbia River salmon, UCUT found… trace amounts of strontium-90, which is another Fukushima radionuclide, according to Gauthier. “There’s some unknowns, some questions that this information raises,” said Gauthier.

Castanet (BC, Canada), Dec 23, 2016: A sockeye salmon containing trace amounts of a radioactive isotope from the 2011 Fukushima nuclear plant disaster in Japan was found in Okanagan Lake. The discovery was made in the summer of 2015 by the Integrated Fukushima Ocean Radionuclide Monitoring network [InFORM]… The organization has found eight fish with detectable levels of “artificial isotopes from human activities”… In one of those eight fish, the one found in Okanagan Lake, researchers were able to detect the element Cesium-134… UPDATE: While [InFORM] reported the Cesium-134 containing sockeye was found in Okanagan Lake, the government data the report references shows that the sockeye samples were actually taken from the Okanagan River

Statesman Journal, Dec 7, 2016: Fukushima radiation has reached U.S. shores — For the first time, seaborne radiation from Japan’s Fukushima nuclear disaster has been detected on the West Coast… in seawater samples taken from Tillamook Bay and Gold Beach in Oregon, researchers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution are reporting. Because of its short half-life, cesium-134 can only have come from Fukushima. Also for the first time, cesium-134 has been detected in a Canadian salmon, the Fukushima InFORM project, led by University of Victoria chemical oceanographer Jay Cullen, is reporting… The Oregon samples, marking the first time cesium-134 has been detected on U.S. shores, were taken in January and February of 2016… [InFORM] reported that a single sockeye salmon, sampled from Okanagan Lake in the summer of 2015, had tested positive for cesium-134… [There] is no significant risk to consumers, Cullen said… A recent InFORM analysis of [Woods Hole chemical oceanographer Ken] Buesseler’s data concluded that concentrations of cesium-137 have increased considerably in the central northeast Pacific, although they still are at levels that pose no concern. “It appears that the plume has spread throughout this vast area from Alaska to California,” the scientists wrote… Radiation levels have not yet peaked. “As the contamination plume progresses towards our coast we expect levels closer to shore to increase over the coming year,” Cullen said…

KBET, Dec 9, 2016: RADIOACTIVE ‘FUKUSHIMA FISH’ WEST COAST USA… RADIOACTIVE fish found off the United States has raised fears the country’s food chain is polluted – and the Fukushima nuclear disaster is being blamed. Highly toxic Cesium-134 – the “fingerprint” of Fukushima – was found in Tillamook Bay and Gold Beach, Oregon. The terrifying discovery was reported by researchers at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution… [R]adiation levels have not yet peaked as a toxic plume makes its way towards the United States.

CBS News (transcript excerpt), Dec 9, 2017: Officials are continuing to monitor the situation, saying the bulk of radiation from the Fukushima plant has not yet made its way across the Pacific.

    Of course everything is contaminated and millions will die. I suggest people start looking into the health side of the Keshe plasma technology. They are now conducting clinical studies on the effectiveness of the CO2 GANS being used to treat cancer patients from Fukushima. It is working extremely well. I have experimented with that GANS too. Four months ago I had a cancerous tumor on the side of my neck. I also had Morgellons. Both the cancer and Morgellons are gone from my body. I have no doubt that drinking 4 oz of activated CO2 GANS played a major role in my recovery. Thanks Mr. Keshe.

          Harv33021 and HoTaters. Maybe I'm a dolt, Ho, but I wasn't aware I needed Keche info, and I DO appreciate your posting this here today.

          I have respiratory issues that continue to worsen. I went to the website and find it confusing. I finally worked my way to a list of distributors, I would assume for the purchase of the equipment necessary to home produce CO2 GANS. No distributor is in Florida. Two are listed for internet purchase.

          Before calling an internet sales agent, I need more info. What is the cost of these units? How can I get general information. i found the Keshe website vague and confusing, and although it details many aspects of world piece and various holistic health practices, I couldn't find what I need. SPECIFICS regarding purchase and use (the pages representing use were blacked out.)

          Please tell me the approximate cost and a link to a website that is more helpful and more in depth for this one aspect of Keshe, CO2 GANS.

          • harv33021

            I know it is not easy to just jump into this stuff. The info is spread all over the place. Start with youtube videos on making CO2 by Cary Karistar Ellis. You can make the gans for less than $10. Basically you need a half cup of sea salt, a spoon full of potassium hydroxide and a gallon distilled water and a few feet of cooper wire. There are several ways to do it so just follow the videos. If it were me I would put a pain/health on my chest and back and I would be drinking the activated GANS water….NEVER DRINK THE ACTUAL GANS. Try these numbers for the KESHE FACTORY IN TEMPE AZ.480 668 3112 also 602 818 5030. Follow Keshe people and groups on Facebook. If you give me away to contact you I will share what I know. It won't cost you anything.

                It did not take long. I started out by making the pain/health pens and when I saw the results I was shocked. I have given many away. I also made pain/health pads and have probably given away over 100 of them. Here are two examples, pain from carpel gone in seconds and has not returned in over 1 year. I started drinking the activated water in Sept of 2016 and I no longer have Morgellons in my blood.

            irhologram, have you looked into what Marc Sircus, OMD has to say about nebulizing a particular form of L-Glutamine? Sorry, I can't remember what type he said it is. It is very helpful with lung ailments.

            I take Hyssop tincture often as I have mild asthma. Haven't had an attack for over three years. If you can get the tincture it works well (also for anxiety). Whole herb with flowers is even better. You can make a tea or decoction with it. It's really great for lung ailments. I drank it a lot when I had pneumonia. A friend of mine said it really helped her to improve after developing severe asthma.

            Mountain Rose Herbs carries it. So does Humboldt Herbals in Eureka, CA. I buy mine from Humboldt Herbals. They carry superior quality herbs.

                • My sister was diagnosed with advanced endocrine cancer last fall, the same kind that killed my mom a year before. Well, the two rounds of chemo were probably what killed her. My sister started taking CBD oil last month and 22 days later (this past Tuesday) the cancer is gone. She went to Moffat (supposedly the best cancer treatment center in Florida) and had it checked on Day 22. They originally wanted to do chemo and radiation and she said no. The lymph nodes are still enlarged, but down 4mm from the time she started the oil. The lymph nodes are still enlarged, but that is because she is detoxing the cancer and other things for her body.

                  I have met several people who work with CBD oil to cure everything form Stage 4 cancer, Alzheimer's, kidney failure, Parkinson's and even simple aging.

                  • The problem with the health industry is that it is a negative indicator if a country were to measure true growth. Healthcare is considered an industry, but its growth depends on an a steady increase in sickness. An unhealthy population is an economically unproductive population. Every penny spent is to bring the population to normal functioning human wellness, which would make it a negative mark in the determination of economic performance and potential.

                    The military operates the same way, too. It is about destruction. Every penny spent is negative because war does not produce anything of economic value and results in severe economic losses from the wars in the form of reconstruction, demolition, infrastructure repairs, dead and wounded, orphans, veterans, social costs… So technically every penny spent on the defense department is a negative mark. Healthcare and Defense make up two of the largest "industries" in the US.

                    If we examined these as negative indicators to measure a country's true value and growth, while adding a domestic satisfaction number that would include basic literacy, critical thinking skills and each antidepressant sold per capita as a negative indicator in the formula, it would show an unviable, unsustainable system, just like the nuclear industry. There is no growth, just smoke and mirrors.

        DragonTat2, 95% of all people with Morgellons also have chronic Lyme disease. Willie Burgdorfer, who discovered the Lyme spirochete, also found microfilaria in 10% of the ticks he studied. I've long suspected it is a tick-borne disease, or at least that's how it originated. Don't buy the Keith Carnacom hypothesis (i.e., that it's in chemtrails and is an engineered nano-organism.)

        • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

          HoTaters, why do you think morgellons is not related to chemtrails and is simply a Lyme disease or similar?

          The fibers are conspicuous; neon pink or red, plastic looking cyan or nylon looking beige or black. In my research, I found the government had done public experimentation, documented, using a pink filamentous organism by air spraying in california. This was a long time ago. Im the only one to uncover that history as far as I know in the morgellons world

          Your Virginia Savely says; Biopsies performed on Morgellons disease patients have focused on fibrous material projecting from inflamed epidermal tissue, and this material is often labeled as “textile fibers” on pathologic examination.7 However, a more thorough analysis of the fibers performed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation forensics laboratory has revealed that the fibers do not resemble textiles or any other manmade substance.

          Morgellons Research Foundationsays What is the source of the skin lesions and fibers?
          So far, we have no idea whether Morgellons skin lesions and related material such as colored fibers are (1) biological agents, (2) produced by such agents, (3) are products of the body’s attempt to rid itself of pathogens

          another source says 'spirochetes cannot produce glassy, black or multicolored fibers or filaments!

          • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

            "spirochetes cannot produce glassy, black or multicolored fibers or filaments!

            based on my survey of the last 7 years (15,000 Morgellons afflicted), I would say generally:

            Whoever suffers from Lyme and related diseases does not usually suffer from Morgellons;

            but whoever becomes sick with Morgellons does mostly suffer previously from a primary disease!

            After further research and observation of these unnatural manifestations on micro level, I came to the conclusion that this new parasite form could be also a GMO (Genetically Modified Organism), made probably with fungal model organisms and some protozoal or bacterial organisms

            Additionally this life form is protected from external influences such as toxins, UV-light, heat etc. by melanin and its body-surrounding, wax-like slime layer, which is based on enzymes, chitin and other polysacherids, and/or with an industrial manufactured coating based on lignin or plastic, which can serve also as carrier for distribution.

            Why did the forensic lab in Tulsa/Oklahoma declare the fibers as unknown material, if they have melanin, chitin and cellulose as cell wall component? And therefore e.g. chitin-inhibitors or chitinase enzyme works as first help to degrade them?

            If we assume that this fungus-like life form can perhaps assimilate or hijack the DNA of other organisms naturally, and the involved bacteria, such as enterobacteria or A. tumifaciens can transfer DNA to other organisms naturally, what new organism is…

    Are the EPA's Emergency Radiation Limits a Cover for Fukushima Fumbles? http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/39044-are-the-epa-s-emergency-radiation-limits-a-cover-for-fukushima-fumbles

    "The message here is that the American public should learn to love radiation, and that much higher levels than what are set by the statutory limits are OK," said Jeff Ruch, executive director of Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER), a watchdog group that represents government employees.

    PEER says that internal documents released under the Freedom of Information Act show the EPA's radiation division hid proposed limits for dozens of radionuclides from the public — and even from other divisions within the agency that were critical of the plan — in order to "avoid confusion" until the final guidelines were released.

    "It's not like this has been done with a lot of openness," Ruch said. "We had to sue them to find out what levels they would allow."

    The EPA's radiation division is now on the verge of approving a long-awaited update to its Protective Action Guidelines for responding to such a "large-scale emergency." Ruch said employees from other divisions of the EPA were cut out of the decision-making process, and internal EPA documents indicate that the concentration limits were set higher than those detected during Fukushima to cover for the EPA's embarrassing performance.

    • freebywill

      [cont] In June, the EPA put the proposal up for public comment, but only made limits for four types of radionuclides publicly available. Critics say the agency still received 60,000 comments opposing the guidelines, including statements from 65 environmental groups. PEER sued the agency under the Freedom of Information Act in October, and the EPA released the proposed limits for dozens of other radionuclides just days before the Christmas holiday.

      Dan Hirsch, president of the Committee to Bridge the Gap, a nuclear watchdog group, attended a briefing with EPA officials on Thursday and told Truthout that the agency intends to finalize the guidelines despite ongoing protests.

      EPA’s Plan for Radioactive Drinking Water http://committeetobridgethegap.org/2017/01/01/epas-plan-radioactive-drinking-water/

      Eight years ago, in the waning days of the Bush Administration, the EPA tried to issue new standards for radioactivity in drinking water that would have increased permissible concentrations by factors of hundreds, thousands, or even more, above the longstanding Safe Drinking Water Act limits. Bridge the Gap was instrumental in getting those proposals blocked at the very last moment.

      Now, in the last days of the Obama Administration, the same people within EPA’s radiation office are trying to push the proposal through again, with even higher concentrations than the Bush EPA had proposed.

    Good work! Elizabeth May, Janet Stein useful idiot crews. Your good work for this period between 2011 and NOW actually managed to make the public less informed and less able to protect themselves and their families.

On the issue of protection., these two have proven themselves to be completely USELESS operations if its health and welfare they are attempting to present the Canadians they are meant to defend.
    Finally, TODAY our unimpressive federal system of governance is currently shuffling its cabinet chairs.

    Just reading this headline as I look outside and ponder the very heavy rains here in Northern California. A glance at the jet stream shows the storms are apparently originating in the west. The jet stream appears to be carrying moisture straight over from Japan.

    And very little word on the situation at Fukushima. We're not hearing much about what's going on, on the ground there.

    We're trying to mitigate the effects here as much as possible.

    Like stock, I'm growing as much of my food as I can. Don't have a spectrometer at this point, so I'm not sure how much my efforts at controlling the growing environment of my food are helping.

    This year we're planning to do an indoor mushroom growing experiment. Just talked with someone who recommended the Chilton and Stamets book, *The Mushroom Cultivator." Convinced from recent conversations with my very talented chiropractor/TCM doc that "mushroom pulling" is of great benefit.

    This year we want to start our first small-scale aquaoponics operation, too. As we have access to filtered/purified water, it may be feasible to do this with relatively clean water. Not so sure about how to mitigate issues with our air source, though (at relatively low cost.)

    Hoping if we can grow the mushrooms and do aquaponics small-scale, I'll have something to post here. Would like to share how to do small-scale operations with any here who may be interested.

    • HoTaters HoTaters

      Love fish, I miss eating it. Thinking lion's mane mushrooms have great benefits for cognitive function. And they're supposed to taste like lobster. If we can grow some relatively clean food it would be great. Sourcing clean organic nutrients to use as soil amendments has been of concern for a long time.

      I'd mentioned several years ago I'm interested in swapping heirloom seeds with people here. I still have some pre-Fuku heirloom seed. Not sure how viable it is, but I have been keeping heirloom seed here for several years.

      If anyone is interested in discussing this and/or swapping seed, sharing seed, please contact me off-list here:

      HoTaters@hush.com

      Please give me a week or two to get back to you.

      We're definitely going to have to be a lot more careful now. Am not sure there are many "safe areas" left on earth now. Or relatively safe. Maybe the South Atlantic, and a few pockets in the extreme northern hemisphere, below the Arctic Circle. Nova Scotia? Hmmn, I wonder.

      So much of our planet is now contaminated. Sigh, Paradise Lost.

        RE: home aquaponics operations, it's important to use food grade plastic for everything, if possible. Or use other types of materials which won't leach nasty chemicals into the water. HDPE (Type 2) is suitable as a food grade plastic. It is considered to be the most stable type for storage of food or water. I wouldn't use plastic bins from my local Target or hardware store for this purpose. Just FYI. Some of the pipes can be sourced from (recycled) from construction sites. There are also some nice vertical farming things which can be done by drilling plugs out of large diameter plastic (PVC) pipes. These can be sourced at a local hardware store, or recycled from construction sites. Lots of info. on how to do vertical growing of veggies in this type of setup. See Pinterest.

          Food grade plastic in the home. If you have to buy in plastic, transfer to glass at home.

          I taught my kids how to read the recycle code on the bottom of containers. If you look, you will see a pyramid on the bottom of most plastics. Inside that pyramid is the recycle code. The good numbers are 4,5,1,and 2. I placed them in that order for a reason, an easy to remember poem you can teach anybody.

      BTW, friends, there is a YouTube video on starting a small-scale aquaponics operation in a very small space for about $75 using items purchased from a local hardware store. Supposedly a 4' X 4' X 4' area is adequate for a small-scale operation. Planning to do this in my garage ro back yard soon.

      The point is, even a person with a small garage, spare room at home, a few feet of unused floor space could potentially become food self-sufficient and grow relatively clean food. Even with a small patio, small space.

      IMO we need to step up and begin exploring things like this, if we can't source clean food on the open market. No one is likely to come and make it available to us, so we need to create more options for ourselves.

      Am extremely impressed with what I'm seeing online re: small-scale aquaponics. I'm in the Central Valley in California. It's becoming a very hot field of interest here. Some people are exploring using very different types of fish, such as sunfish, freshwater perch, even bass. Tasty fish, IMO much better than tilipia. Although tilapia is tasty if it's prepared correctly. We have access to Asian markets here, so it's a bit easier to learn how to prepare freshwater fish properly than in some other locales.

      On 10/22/2015, the person posted on Twitter that 52,339 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 was detected from a type of mushroom called “Ramaria botrytis” (Photos A). The sample was collected in a copse of Futaba county in Fukushima.

      Cs-134/137 density was 2,378 Bq/Kg in the soil around the sample to show the mushroom concentrated Cs-134/137 over 22 times.

      30,865 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 was also measured from a sample of “Cortinarius violaceus” (Photos B). The sampling location was the same.

    …The tanks (on the plant site) have 100 times more strontium than cesium, Buesseler said. He believes that the cesium is retained in the soil under the plant, while strontium and tritium, another radioactive substance, are continuing to escape. […] the higher concentration of strontium-90 that is now in the outflow poses a trickier problem, because it is a bone-seeking isotope. “Cesium is like salt—it goes in and out of your body quickly,” he explains. “Strontium gets into your bones.” While he’s still not too concerned that fish caught off the U.S. coast will be affected, “strontium changes the equation for Japanese fisheries, as to when their fish will be safe to eat.” […]

    5 Billion Bq of Strontium-90 flows to the Pacific on the daily basis in 2014. Tepco announced in the press conference of 8/25/2014.

    This is due to the contaminated water overflowing from the seaside of Reactor 1 ~ 4 to Fukushima plant port.

    They also announced 2 Billion Bq of Cesium-137 and 1 Billion Bq of Tritium flow to the sea every single day as well.

    Fukushima plant port is not separated from the Pacific. Discharged nuclide naturally spreads to the sea.

    "[R]adiation levels have not yet peaked as a toxic plume makes its way towards the United States."

    Critically important comment from KBET and we must never forget. And it's going to get worser and worser for at least decades before levels of Strontium 90, etc., begin to fall appreciably. Probably a couple of centuries. But then there will be the long-lived isotopes to deal with, and there will be plenty of them.

    Will find and re-post the article from Enenews re: what the anticipated levels of radionuclides in the next 20-30 years will be, as the plume impacts the western shores of N. America, and works its way southward. Then back across the Pacific.

    From article above:

    "KBET, Dec 9, 2016: RADIOACTIVE ‘FUKUSHIMA FISH’ WEST COAST USA… RADIOACTIVE fish found off the United States has raised fears the country’s food chain is polluted – and the Fukushima nuclear disaster is being blamed. Highly toxic Cesium-134 – the “fingerprint” of Fukushima – was found in Tillamook Bay and Gold Beach, Oregon. The terrifying discovery was reported by researchers at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution… [R]adiation levels have not yet peaked as a toxic plume makes its way towards the United States."

    Now how could anyone publish information stating the plume "just made contact" with the West Coast of the U.S., Canada. Blatant dis-information. I cry phooey, fake news.

  • There where reports of a massive drop in fish stocks from all along the west coast of America in 2016.

    The massive amount of radioactive environment pollution from Fukushima has resulted in the Northern Pacific Ocean food supply crashing! Like the human embryo, embryonic sea life including fish eggs, are hypersensitive to radioactive contamination, hence the large number of reports of seals, whales and birds etc., washing up on the west coast of North America, starving to death.

    This view is sported by Dr. Sternglass's research paper below. It clearly demonstrates how nuclear contamination from the nuclear bomb testing era caused a significant crash in Pacific Ocean fish stocks. If this was the case then, it would be logical to assume that the Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe is having a similar effect.

    Quote:

    “The purpose of the study was to determine whether continued atmospheric testing by France and China or potential releases from underground detonations that might unexpectedly escape into the nearby fishing grounds could have detectable effects on the reproduction of fish populations similar to the unanticipatedly severe effects of low level radiation on the human embryo and fetus (2, 3, 4) recently confirmed by independent studies by other investigators (5, 6).”

    http://sccc.org.au/the-pacific-ocean-is-dying

    • Quote from this report,

      "The UCUT study, which used fish tissue samples from two Chinook and two sockeye salmon in the Columbia River, also found levels of dioxins and furans, mercury and PCBs, according to Gauthier. Next week, the Tribune will publish a second article on those findings."

      Toxicity Multiplying Effect

      North Pacific Ocean water is now a mixture of toxic industrial chemicals washed out to sea during the tsunami, and a verity of radioactive isotopes, not just Cesium, but also Tritium, Strontium, Americium, and Plutonium, etc. A lot of these isotopes are heavy metal toxins, as well as being radioactive. All this has now been added to the toxins that were already in the Pacific Ocean, before Fukushima.

      A single toxin in the environment can be a hazard, and maybe an organism's natural biological defence system can deal with this effectively. If an organism has multiple toxins present, radiological and chemical, to deal with at the same time, you get a biological toxicity multiplying effect. The human or animal defence systems become weaker the more toxins they have to deal with.

      Biologically, one toxin plus one toxin, does not equate double the toxicity effect. Studies show you can get a multiplying toxicity damaging effect 10 to 20 times greater. The organism becomes overloaded dealing with too much toxic stress at once.

      and then there was that German study that said the peak would be in 2016. But no, it just got here. In a year they will say it just got here. In two years they will say it just got here.

      Just arrived? My hiney!

      • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

        40 million bq of I-131 and thats just the Corona Del Mar kelp bed. Its a slightly strange way to quantify though. Ripe for mainstream 'debunking'. They will say the radiation is 'only' 0.3 to 1.3 kBq m−2 of canopy, far less than background radiation and harmless. An interesting calculation would be to estimate the size of the kelp bed, divide into the total pacific ocean area and multiply by 1kb to get a rough estimate of total iodine release

        Corona Kelp bed = 0.095 km2

        Pacific = 165.25 million square kilometers =
        1650000000 x 1000 bq per meter

        1,650,000,000,000 so 1.65 trillion beqeuerels by extrapolation. Actually it was much higher than that. SimplyInfo says total release of radiation to the air is between 900 and 17,000 PBq

        say 10,000,000,000,000,000,000 Bq, of which only a part is I-131 of course. Someone says there was 31 times as much Iodine-129 than I-131 from Fukushima.

      • Thank-you, HoTaters! I can't believe they could publish such an out-and-out lie: "For the first time, seaborne radiation from Japan’s Fukushima nuclear disaster has been detected on the West Coast…"

        Fallout from Fukushima has been found in animal and plant life all along the West Coast since the early days! Fish, kelp, milk, water, sand, vegetables, fruit. It's here. It's been here since the beginning in 2011. And it's accumulating.

        I mean, how are they entirely ignoring Dana Durnford's findings? The tidal pools have been all but wiped out in many areas along the B.C. coast.

        • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

          To be fair, they DO stipulate SEA BORN radiation…the stuff that came over by ocean currents rather than by air. The high radiation measured on the U.S. just after the disaster was from airborne fallout and much of it has decayed. (not without having done damage to plant and animal!). That said, tsunami debris washed up three years ago. You would THINK radiation would have been measured along with it

          Estimates of radiation release vary widely. We dont know the full extent of release and certainly not the full extent of damage and death

          • I'm not just talking about airborne radiation! We're talking about decimation of the sea life in the tidal pools. That indicates seaborne. Fish tested hot off the Alaskan coast years ago…that indicates seaborne.

            Starting in 2011, there have been massive illnesses and die-offs of: whales, orcas, dolphins, sea lions, seals, polar bears, walruses, sea birds, pelicans, turtles, crabs, sea stars, sea urchins, oysters, scallops, abalone, sardines, anchovies, salmon, herring, jellyfish, coral, krill, plankton!!!

            So let's get serious – it's been seaborne all along.

            And no, not all the radioactive isotopes have such short lifespans. It's just that the media loves to focus exclusively on the ones that do.

            An article published in Scientific American in 2012, for example, admitted radioactive iodine from Fuku was found in the kelp off the California coast. Radioactive iodine has a short lifespan. Guess what? Nothing else was tested for! So they can placate the public by saying, "Oh, don't worry, this has a short half-life," when they didn't even bother looking for anything else.

            https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/radioactive-iodine-from-from-fukushima-found-in-california-kelp/?mobileFormat=true

The atmospheric volume is large and so the concentration of cesium – and iodine,by the time it got here- was around 0.01 bq/m3, 1000x less than the concentration that is now showing up in the ocean off the coast.

              Deposition from the atmospheric plume seems to have caused infant death and deformities to spike significantly and many people noticed that insects and smaller animals were decimated. The initial deposition of I-131 caused some milk and water to exceed set standards. There was a media blackout about this and the whole disaster.

              The radioactive xenon was huge but dismissed as harmless because noble gas does not interact with biology. Yet the radiation was still there! The ocean life has been severely affected.

              Science is either intentionally or unintentionally blind to this, focusing instead on the catch all fear of climate change.

              The over all response of industry, government and science has been disgusting, criminal, stupid.

              Like Chernobyl and all other industrial catastrophe there is orchestrated cover up. The public is thereby fooled and the people who can see the obvious are labeled conspiracy theorists and looked askance even by their friends and family. The huge release of approximately 10,000 Hiroshima bombs is considered harmless by science, thus destroying the nuclear deterrent factor.

              • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                The problem of the failed scientific model and understanding…the conceptual grasp of radiation by pro and anti nukers alike…is seen in the numbers. Current oceanic radioactive concentration at around 10 bq/m3 is 1000x less than background radiation from k-40. The initial atmospheric plume was very approximately one million times less. The linear no threshold model of science causes the scientific brains to conclude that this fallout cant possibly be harmful. Epidemiology and observation of the natural world tell the true picture; fallout is 500 to 10,000 times, (1,000,000% if you like) worse than assumed and background radiation, is apparently very non toxic and possibly beneficial in the over all biological balance. Studies show this for K-40 in particular, and this is not surprising considering its intrinsic connection with life since the beginning. This incredible scenario shows the mistake in the woods hole slogan "we live in a sea of radioactivity, the danger is in the dose" The true slogan would be "we have always lived in a sea of radiation, but it caused no cancer, deformation, ocean die off, genomic instability or bystander effect until man added nuclear fallout" But this point is apparently impossible to convey to pro and anti nuker alike

              I can't, but the NOAA video based on actual measurements of US West Coast radiation at 500,000 times (or more) above "normal background levels" becomes thoroughly plausible under that scenario.

              What I don't understand is, why didn't more of us on the West Coast have acute radiation sickness? I'd say mine was sub-acute. Had a lot of what I think we're radiarion burns on my skin from getting rainwater on my skin, esp. in Spring and October, 2011.

      The research identifying microalgae for remediation in disasters such as Fukushima had intentions of identifying high absorption plants and algae to "eliminate" radio contaminates from the environment through ABSORBTION and ultimately, disposal. In nature, however the algae and micro-organisms with the high affinity for uptake will release the radioisotopes back into the environment for bio-accumulation, as they are not collected after absorption. The research, however, highlights the susceptibility of organisms to absorb Fukushima- some more than others. I have highlighted one named in the study (Cyanophyceae Stigonema ocellatum, cyanobacteria- the very core "in the schematic phylogenetic tree of life").
      Note the study points out that potassium levels in fresh water are of low enough concentration to not expect interference of C-137 uptake.

      "In this study, we investigated the ability of algae and aquatic plants to eliminate radionuclides from media, in order to establish a strategy for decontaminating the aquatic environment in Fukushima area. We have screened 188 strains of algae and aquatic plants for strains that possess the ability to efficiently accumulate radionuclides and, hence, are potentially useful for eliminating the radionuclides from the environment."

    "In 2005, the reactor vessel and other radioactive equipment were removed from the Trojan plant, encased in concrete foam, shrink-wrapped, and transported intact by barge along the Columbia River to Hanford Nuclear Reservation in Washington, where it was buried in a pit and covered with 45 ft of gravel, which made it the first commercial reactor to be moved and buried whole.[15] The spent fuel is stored onsite in 34 dry casks.[16] It was awaiting transport to the Yucca Mountain Repository until that project was canceled in 2009.[17]"

    The most important cesium isotopes in terms of their potential effects on human health are cesium-134 (Cs-134)

    This information is important because this substance may harm you. The effects of exposure to any hazardous substance depend on the dose, the duration, how you are exposed, if it is in the Food Chain, you are royally screwed..

    What is cesium?
    Natural cesium is present in the environment in only one stable form, as the isotope 133Cs.

    Radioactive forms of cesium are produced by the fission of uranium in fuel elements (fuel rods) during the normal operation of nuclear power plants, or when nuclear weapons are exploded. Radioactive forms of cesium are unstable and eventually change into other more stable elements through the process of radioactive decay. The two most important radioactive isotopes of cesium are 134Cs and 137Cs.

    As 134Cs and 137Cs decay, beta particles and gamma radiation are given off.
    Radioactive decay is the process by which the nucleus of an unstable atom loses energy.

    Radioactive material can cause longer-term health effects via prolonged exposure, particularly if they enter the food chain or are inhaled or ingested directly.
    {It is my logical opinion that once actively decaying radiation enters the food chain, 'doses' become accumulating through human ingestion of food and water}

      Let the following be food for thought, for if it is significant, it would explain massive loss in the biosphere levels.

      Radioactive decay influenced by the Sun?

      In school you probably learned that the decay rate of radioactive matter is solely determined by the halftime specific to the element. There is no environmental factor that can somehow tweak this process. At least there shouldn't be. Now a second study confirmed previous findings that the decay rate of some elements seems to be under the subtle and mysterious influence of the sun. As of now there is no theoretical explanation for this strange effect buried in the decay rate data.

    WIPP update – "ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — It was the determination of workers over nearly three years and pure ingenuity that allowed the nation’s only underground repository for low-level nuclear waste to recover from a radiation release, the head of the U.S. Energy Department said.

    Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz told The Associated Press that resuming work at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant in southern New Mexico means the nation’s multibillion-dollar cleanup of waste from decades of bomb-making and nuclear research is one step closer to getting back on track.

    “We are very, very excited about getting at least a resumption of operations,” he said during an interview late Sunday. “I do want to caution we will not be at full speed yet for a few years.”

      AnneBeck…where ya been? The body is naturally radioactive…roughly 5000 radioactive disintegrations per second. Thats about 5x more radioactive than the ocean, (per mass), so the body is 70bq/kg, the ocean 12 bq/kg and the amount of fallout is 0.01 bq/kg. So we know what Buesseler and Cullen are finding…about 10 bq/cubic meter of cesium in ocean water of cesium and this represents the great majority of fallout radiation. The next important is strontium which is 1/40 to 1/1000 the level of cesium. So radioactive fallout is about one seven thousandths of what the intrinsic radioactivity of your body has and this is why they call it trace. The measurements are not really in question, its the toxicity which is in question. Science is stuck with an outdated toxicity model. They believe in dilution. If you dumped a load of medical sharps on the beach, no matter how much they got spread around they would still be as dangerous. This shows a failing of science, but also of the mental concept of radiation danger. Both pro and anti nukers are caught in this mental trap

      Low doses of ionizing radiation increase risk of death from solid cancers.

      “The present study demonstrates a significant association between increasing radiation dose and risk of all solid cancers,” says IARC researcher Dr Ausrele Kesminiene, a study co-author. “No matter whether people are exposed to protracted low doses or to high and acute doses, the observed association between dose and solid cancer risk is similar per unit of radiation dose.”

      http://www.iarc.fr/en/media-centre/pr/2015/pdfs/pr238_E.pdf

      No matter how someone tries to convince you otherwise, the rest of science say's, there is no safe dose…

      Why There Is No "Safe" Level Of Radiation from Fukushima.

      http://www.greenmedinfo.com/page/why-there-no-safe-level-radiation-fukushima

      It's an overwhelming consensus…

      • Jebus Jebus

        I should add that, only the nuclear industry, say's there is a threshold for effects caused by manmade ionizing radiation and by widespread contamination from manmade nuclear waste.

        • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

          not true Jebus. The industry and the scientists all say there is no threshold. Only a few outliers say there may be a threshold. The thing the industry DOES say is that at very low levels, near background radiation, the effects are so statistically small that you can never pin any cancer on fallout.

          • Jebus Jebus

            I beg to differ on the industry's preferences…

              Here is the ironic part; A threshold of natural radiation would be TO YOUR ADVANTAGE. thats right, to the advantage of the anti nuclear movement. Ive explained it too many times, sorry if you didnt catch it. Alas, the NO threshold model does not seem to be going away from the science and industry of nuclear, unless Busby can do it…

              • Jebus Jebus

                lol! You really don't know what I think…

                If you want to play into the hands of the nuclear industry, et. al, that is your right.

                I use all my sense's, so that I can recognize my mistakes… 🙂

                • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                  Jebus, we just had that go around with the WTC, so if you think there were explosives involved, i.e. believe architects and engineers for 911 truth have a legitimate concern, then you certainly didnt express it then. Conclusion; we do know what you think on that matter unless you want to correct the view. On radiation threshold, just because you havent followed and cant think it through doesnt mean there is validity to exploring it. Its simple math actually; Background radiation is 1000x more than fallout. Even if its 1000 times worse than assumed, it only equals background radiation toxicity. In other words, the industry and science position is correct then; no big deal at all. On the other hand if there is a threshold, then fallout becomes infinitely more toxic by comparison. Is there something about that that is hard to understand? Please inform me, because it seems so obvious, yet nobody can grasp it. Easier than understanding a carburetor. If it is playing into the hands of the nuclear industry to say their stuff is infinitely more toxic than background radiation, explain how.

                  In the meantime, you might ponder, with all that background radiation, why hasnt everything mutated out of existence?

                  "Our numerical simulations indicate that for higher organisms, up to 90% of all deleterious mutations should be un-selectable

                  This clearly reflects a profound evolutionary paradox “why have we not died 100 times over?"

                    Nice slide.

                    Nothing, absolutely nothing I had to say, that you chose to comment on, had anything, nothing, to do with WTC.

                    And I go with Science, there is no safe dose.

                    LNT, ICRP, ICRR, LGBT, still wouldn't have stopped the massive global manmade ionizing nuclear waste spead across the planet from not only Fukushima, the straw, but also seventy other years of wholesale contamination of the planet with long lived manmade radionuclides.

                    No model can fix that.

                    Even Ernest knows that it is now about consent.

                    Nothing else matters.

                    Anything more than zero manmade is an unacceptable and unneeded risk.

                      Not a slide Jebus. You said the nuclear industry maintains there is a threshold, and gave Rod Adams group as proof. I showed the size of the group relative to the WTC group [A&E for 9-11 truth] because its like 20x bigger and neither you nor the world is yet on board with them. So…not a slide, certainly not intended as one.

                      scientific skeptic author Brian Dunning evaluated the scientific literature concerning this issue. Regarding the scientific effort to replace the LTN model with a model that better reflects the facts

                      Nowhere will you find recommendations that radiation hormesis be made part of the model — at least, nowhere outside of the fringe sources.

                      Radiation hormesis has not been accepted by either the United States National Research Council, or the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements. In addition, the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR) wrote in its most recent report:

                      Committee believes that an increase in the risk of tumour induction proportionate to the radiation dose is consistent with developing knowledge and that it remains, accordingly, the most scientifically defensible approximation of low-dose response.

                      No Safe Dose Of Radiation

                      "Any radiation, no matter how little, can cause cancer."

                      There is no safe level of exposure to radiation, only legally “allowable” or “permissible doses. Every federal agency that regulates industrial releases and medical uses of ionizing radiation warns that any and all exposure to external or internal radiation doses, no matter how small, increases one’s risk of cancer. However, when a radiation accident happens, major news organizations are often quick to down-play or outright misstate the potential health and environmental consequences. The second or third sentence in reactor accident or radiation release stories often includes the phrase “no danger to the public” or the like.

                      no safe dose. Can the same be said for oxygen?

                      Thing is, theres a problem; theres a lot of background radiation. Is it poisonous? NEARLY not poisonous? Oxygen is poisonous, no doubt about it. IT causes free radicals.

                      We would be lucky if there were a safe dose of background radiation, because then nuclear fallout would seen to be something different, something much much worse than zero. Now its just "a little bit more" Like a tenth of a percent more.
                      But there are studies! Broken glass is silica, like sand, but its infinitely more dangerous to walk on a little bit of cut glass than a bunch of sand. Some studies that show background is not dangerous even when increased 100x, even 1000x. Thats amazing. 1000 times background means a million times more radiation than there is from fallout. A MILLION TIMES. Meanwhile, Busby says fallout is 1000x worse than previously assumed. Those are EXACTLY THE NUMBERS WE NEED to explain the catastrophe. When can we say that background is NOT the danger that the pro and anti nuclearists repeat over and over that it is?

              "They want the baseline as high as reasonably achievable"…

              It's all a 'Baseline' game. The 'medical' industry has now changed the blood pressure baseline putting people in harms way for a friggin buck. This is no different than the nuclear industry and their so-called threshold or whatever. The bottom line is people get sick for nothing. That sickness in many cases could be avoided with truth and education, but that is not a moneymaker.

              I can't even begin to tell you the number of radiologists I've met with cancer. Do you know there is shielding available for x-ray? No one is ever told or educated people to this fact. Or how about Vit C and lots of OJ prior/post any radiological scan?

              When my kid or myself needed scans, I made sure the throat and abdomen was lead shielded. They have a full body cover if you ask. Men should always do this, even 1 scan is dangerous. X-ray brings in big bucks so exposure is a good thing for the cabal.

    Ionizing radiation is any type of particle or electromagnetic wave that carries enough energy to ionize or remove electrons from an atom. There are two types of electromagnetic waves that can ionize atoms: X-rays and gamma-rays, and sometimes they have the same energy.

    They can easily penetrate deep inside the human body, damaging some of the biological cells of which the body is composed. This damage can cause a fatal cancer to develop, or if it occurs in reproductive cells, it can cause genetic defects in later generations of offspring.

    Eugenics as a guiding influence within the ICRP
    [International Commission on Radiological Protection]

    Quote:

    Speaking at an atomic conference at Geneva, Sir Ernest Rock Carling, a Home Office pathologist, declared:

    “It is also to be hoped that, in a limited proportion of cases, these mutations (from nuclear radiation from atomic bomb test fallout) will have a favourable effect and produce a child of genius. At the risk of shocking this distinguished company, I affirm that the mutation that will give us an Aristotle, a Leonardo da Vinci, a Newton, a Pasteur, or an Einstein will largely compensate for the ninety nine others, which will have much less fortunate effects.” (cited by Pauwels and Bergier, 1960)

    Such views of eugenics, such as held by Ernest Rock Carling, Chair, ICRP, do account for the use of indigenous land as sites of nuclear testing throughout the world, and I believe the influence of such views was not merely subconscious. In the case of Ernest Rock Carling, an important and influential member of the British nuclear elite, such views were blatant, even though, gladly, there was at least some questioning of this Fascist mind set. And no mistake the eugenics justification was at the foundation of the formation of the Nazi Party.

      Chillingly, Dr Edward Teller responded in the style of Rock Carling in the course of his famous debate with Dr Linus Pauling:

      Quote:

      “We know enough about the mechanism of heredity to be sure that changes will be made in the germ plasm, just as Dr. Pauling has said, and many, very many, probably the great majority of these changes will be damaging. Yet without some changes, evolution would be impossible.”

    Proof of Harm

    The results of the global research effort showed that humans were being
    adversely affected by radioactive fallout from atmospheric testing of nuclear weapons and the monitoring program contributed to the eventual banning of atmospheric testing throughout the world.

    Minister Wooldridge confirms that the Atomic Weapons Test Safety Committee was actively engaged in Project Sunshine. The first 11 pages of the Minutes of the AEC Committee, which sat in August 1953, remain deleted and restricted from public view. In this document the Committee considered the risks of those close in to nuclear test areas and the vulnerability of such populations. The committee pondered the adequacy of the limits set in terms of the ICRP derived tolerance dose for Strontium 90, based as it was on the radium standard.

    ..he was subject to the secrecy provisions of both the United States of America and the United Kingdom…

    Two months after the deliberations in Washington in August 1953, which set 25,000 megatons of explosive yield as the amount of nuclear weapons required to bring the population of the whole globe to the ICRP derived tolerance level for Strontium 90, United States B29 cloud chase aircraft took off from an Australian Air Force base and headed for Emu Field. They, together with RAAF aircrew had the task of chasing and monitoring the whole of the Totem 1 nuclear bomb fallout cloud.

    cont..

  • GOM GOM

    cont..

    The aircrews admit they failed. The US aircrews, veterans of the Pacific tests, reported that the cloud portions which were flown through were the most radio active they had ever encountered. One RAAF aircrew had a 12 hour flight, becoming lost in the attempt to find the missing portion of the cloud.

    They should have been in jeeps, running around Mable Creek and Mintabie, South Australia, instead of assuming the whole cloud was at aircraft height.

    And some people have the audacity to claim there is no proof.

    It is past time for the world to know the contents of pages 1 – 11 of the August 1953 AEC minutes. Titterton for sure was in on it. What did he take to the grave?

    On returning to base the US crews reported that their radiation detection equipment remained on full scale deflection.

    By what special means did the British weapons engineers render their fallout so persistent that the US aircrews could not, under US regulations, approach their aircraft for 72 hours? There is more in a fallout cloud than Strontium 90. The short lived isotopes deliver a huge dose to those subject to fresh fallout.

    The rumor is this: Several tons on coal had been placed at the base of the Emu 1 bomb tower.

    In order to create dense, heavy, sticky, fallout.
