University of Hawaii at Mānoa, 2017:

In the Wake of Fukushima: Radiocesium Inventories of Selected North Pacific Fish

Thirteen commonly consumed types of fish caught in the North Pacific and locally available in Hawaii were analyzed using gamma spectroscopy to measure Fukushima-derived and historic 134 Cs and 137 Cs isotopes. All fish samples had detectable 137 Cs above 95% Confidence Intervals. Three out of the thirteen samples had 134 Cs, an isotope indicative of Fukushima releases, detected above 95% Confidence Intervals. The highest 134 Cs and 137 Cs concentration in the examined species was in ahi tuna carrying 0.10±0.04 Bq/kg and 0.62±0.05 Bq/kg, respectively. Other samples with 134 Cs activities found above their 2-sigma uncertainty were albacore tuna and swordfish…

[W]hile the plume has not necessarily reached the Hawaiian Islands, it did travel within established fishing grounds across major migratory paths northeast of the islands…

Five samples showed the Fukushima tracer 134Cs, present above critical levels and at the 68% confidence interval (CI at 1-sigma uncertainty) but only three of those fish exhibited activities above the range of their 2 sigma uncertainty representing 95% CI…

Five samples showed evidence of Fukushima-derived 134Cs…

This study suggests that about 40% of fish tested here and are consumed on the islands of Hawai’i were recently exposed to the path of the Fukushima-derived radiocesium plume in the North Pacific Gyre…

Regular sampling of species that show signs of Fukushima-derived radiocesium may better inform us about the variability and spatial distribution of the released radiocesium isotopes.

                    “Alarmingly, man-made Ununtrium, now recognised as the 113th element on the periodic table, as it is currently called, could potentially be used to make nuclear warheads more devastating than those produced with plutonium such as the implosion-type fission bomb exploded over the Japanese city of Nagasaki at the end of WWII in 1945 which killed around 200,000 people.

                    “…Ununtrium is so unstable and radioactive that only minuscule amounts of it have been observed and created, so little is yet known about its properties.

                    “If it were put to use, it is likely it could only be within the nuclear power or even weapons industries.

                      Anne is a PhD but claims simultaneously that one atom of plutonium is 100% fatal when breathed by dogs but that 0.1 micrograms is a lethal dose.

                      She should be able to calculate that there are;

                      247,000,000,000,000 atoms of plutonium in 0.1 micrograms,

                      making her first assertion off by hundreds of trillions of times. This disinfo is so easily debunked it makes the anti nuke crowd look like morons and is therefor to be guarded against. It makes us look bad, it makes her look bad…which is not so bad unless we want to have a positive impact on shutting down the nuke cartel

                      I have shown that science recognizes one errant cell cant make cancer. I did a long thread just recently on this. The implication is important; it shows the premise of the ICRP dosimetry is flawed at its base. It shows that the metabolic damage from low level fallout is more important than DNA hits. This is a very important point.

                      Low level fallout doesnt increase your chances of being sick…it simply makes everything sicker to some degree with acute disease manifesting at some point in life.

                      The metabolic morbidity factor of fallout is not recognized by nuke science or industry, despite the abundance of proofs in scientific literature. There is a bit of good news too; by correcting metabolic damage with diet, herbs, and vitamins, we can greatly reduce the health impact of low level fallout. This is shown and explained by those working with Chernobyl victims

                      The Implications of The Massive Contamination of Japan With Radioactive Cesium
                      Steven Starr
                      “Less than two grams of Cesium-137, a piece smaller than an American dime, if made into microparticles and evenly distributed as a radioactive gas over an area of one square mile, will turn that square mile into an uninhabitable radioactive exclusion zone. Central Park in New York City can be made uninhabitable by 2 grams of microparticles of Cesium-137. Hard to believe, isn’t it?

                      “Remember, these nuclear poisons are lethal at the atomic level. There are as many atoms in one gram of Cesium-137 as there are grains of sand in all the beaches of the world. That’s 1021 atoms—10 to the 21st power. 1480 trillion of them or 1.48 times 10 to the 12th power are disintegrating every second, releasing invisible nuclear energy. So this works out to about one and a half million disintegrations per second per square meter. We can see how this works then….”

                      Caldicott didnt say one atom of plutonium was lethal. You quoted some fool in the comment section and now call them an expert. When pointed out, you never admit an error, which is typical. Instead you try vainly to argue the point.

                      divide the number of grams by the molar mass. The result is the number of moles in your element

                      I refute this quote supposedly from Caldicott
                      " it takes only one radioactive atom, one cell, and one gene to initiate the cancer or mutation cycle."

                      A key to fighting the false precepts of nuclear health science is that low level fallout, not background radiation, causes metabolic damage, a cascade of metabolic changes that leads to many different diseases.

                      "The Hallmarks of Cancer" is a seminal peer-reviewed article published in the journal Cell in January 2000 by the cancer researchers Douglas Hanahan and Robert Weinberg.

                      The authors believe that the complexity of cancer can be reduced to six underlying principles that govern the transformation of normal cells to cancer cells."

                      These six features are all related to information transfer, which is a differentiating quality between fallout and background radiation. I have to double check, but it appears even one atom per cell of fallout is enough to initiate these metabolic changes.

                      "The traits that the authors highlight in the paper are (1) Cancer cells stimulate their own growth (self-sufficiency in growth signals); (2) They resist inhibitory signals that might otherwise stop their growth (insensitivity to anti-growth signals); (3) They resist their programmed cell death (evading apoptosis); (4) They can multiply indefinitely (5) They stimulate the growth of blood vessels to supply nutrients to tumors; (6) They invade local tissue and spread to distant sites."

                    The energy of a single atom of plutonium is enough to cause double strand breakage in one cell of the body that will induce cancer and mutations.

                    Even the tiniest radioactive particle created by the nuclear fuel cycle is incompatible with life and all nuclear reactors and weapons should banned worldwide. This is especially true of plutonium, curium, and all the actinides. The creation of artificial radioactive isotopes destroys the possibility of any life on the earth forever.

                      I find this untrue; "The energy of a single atom of plutonium is enough to cause double strand breakage in one cell of the body that will induce cancer and mutations."

                      There are an estimated 10 double strand breaks per cell per day due to natural metabolic stresses and background radiation

                      https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3079308/

                      Double strand breaks are an important measure or result of radiation damage. But a lethal dose of 0.1 micrograms of plutonium contains some 250 trillion atoms. Thats about six atoms per cell on average. The result is radiation sickness and death due to major metabolic dysfunction and death of cells. The victim is dead before they see cancer.

                      In low level fallout exposure, again there is a metabolic effect and the result is not a random chance of cancer from a single DNA double strand break but a metabolic morbidity factor that may manifest as clinical disease

                      the other week I found papers for several metabolic changes from radiation, including the change of cells to a more sugar loving metabolism (shift from an oxidative to glycolytic phenotype. glycolysis is frequently linked to cancer cell metabolism) and makes them into meat glue factories (aberrant expression of the proinflammatory protein transglutaminase-2 which is an important regulator of the Warburg effect, an important factor in tumorogenesis)

                      If you want to try and research your theory that radiation messes up the DNA double strand break repair machinery, what we are ideally looking for is something radionuclide specific. If it were me, I would start with the Ku-70 and Ku-80 proteins and see if the radiation cancer treatment establishment finds they can disable them with some kinds of radiation.

      What if I told you the only thing Busby got right about that, which he probably doesn't mention, is a matter of gravity and equalization?

          Radiochemical Genotoxicity Risk and Absorbed Dose
          Christopher Busby*

          “…The concept of Radiochemical Genotoxicity is presented whereby biochemical affinity of internal radionuclides or DNA confers an excess genetic hazard which can be assessed. The most directly measurable effects of radiation exposure are heritable effects detectable around birth. Data enabling the development of a risk coefficient for internal exposures to Uranium fission-products is already available. By directly employing a meta-analysis of more than 19 epidemiological studies of post-Chernobyl birth outcomes in 10 different countries affected by contamination from Chernobyl a generalized risk coefficient for heritable damage is obtained. It is shown that the dose response is biphasic due to death of the foetus before term. The resulting coefficient is 20 per mSv internal exposure. Application of the new factor to the radionuclide exposures occurring during the period of atmospheric test contamination predicts the increases in infant mortality reported in the literature. The philosophical and ethical aspects are briefly discussed together with an account of the legal position in Europe.”

              in the case of a fetus dying before its born, its easy to see that a higher dose would cause less disease than a lower dose; a dead person suffers no disease!

              But the biphasic data is there…Busby didnt do that research, he is just taking the existing information and dealing with it.
              Its complicated. There is the hormesis effect, the bystander effect, unknown effects. What the data does show is that very low levels of fallout are much more dangerous than the ICRP linear extrapolation model. And that is key to overthrowing the ICRP model which is required to have legal leverage to shut down nuclear

                    Let me put it this way, what radiation was Busby observing or testing for that caused such elevated at low levels? I would imagine, more of that, would be worse than less of it.

                    But my reasoning is bizarre like that.

                      Let me correct that.

                      Let me put it this way, what radiation was Busby observing or testing for that caused such elevated DAMAGE (this could be cancer or more immediate effects, which I kinda reckon is masked by that curve) at low levels? I would imagine, more of that, would be worse than less of it.

                  • q Farthington MacMananus

                    So my contention is, 200msv isn't enough to kill you immediately, is it? Now if we consider (as I think most of us do??!?!) that more damaging radiation is typically worse than less damaging radiation…

                    But yet, massively increased rates of cancers (according to Busby) is associated with lower levels of radiation.

                    Look, I'm gonna give you a little bit of stronium-90. Would you like that, or prefer 10x that amount?

    Please Admin no disregard, but your post should have noted that the fish samples described are from fish samples that were acquired/purchased in March of 2015. Findings of the Study were published in December of 2016.

    This posting today is a form of unintentional disinformation, because between the time of the findings and it's republication today by ENENEWS, there would be higher concentrations 2-1/2 years later due to bio-accumulation and bio-magnification. The Study makes a limited statement, but a critical qualification that other associated radionuclides were not counted; therefore; counting only the Cesium present does not accurately provide how radioactive/contaminated the fish were. *"This study does not address the total committed effective dose from all radionuclides present in fish, …"

    The posting of the findings of this Study 2-1/2 years after the reported results in a dynamically changing ecosphere is in effect…misinformation/disinformation; because, the findings from fish samples analyzed in March 2015, don't represent the radiological conditions today which in turn is the true level of danger they present.

    Using only Cesium as representing the radioactivity in the fish and in turn the open question of the danger of consumption, is flawed and unscientific. To assess the true and accurate danger, all radionuclides would have to be measured, because we know Cesium in the wild is never isolated from other transuranics.

(In 1949 a group of researchers recommended that the tolerance dose be lowered again, to one-tenth that amount, or 0.1 microgram, after former Met Lab scientist Austin Brues presented results of a rat study suggesting plutonium was fifteen times more damaging than radium. Wright Langham and other scientists vigorously opposed the adoption of such a conservative standard, arguing among other things, that it would produce ‘serious delays’ in the lab’s plutonium operations. The AEC’s Shields Warren struck a compromise and lowered the maximum permissible dose to 0.5 micrograms.)”

Delicious. 😉 You can watch the fishing boats from the shore in the that supposed no-fishing zone a stone's throw outside the exclusion zone (pics: https://allegedlyapparent.wordpress.com/2013/11/18/a-visit-to-fukushima-cut-short-with-photos-and-reflections/ ), while truly radioactive fish tickle the feet of surfers (12,400 Bq/kg of Cs-137 @ https://allegedlyapparent.wordpress.com/2014/01/12/caught-nov-17-2013-37-km-south-of-nuclear-disaster-site-a-black-sea-bream-fish-with-12400-bqkg-of-cs-137/ )

    Anyhow, You'll find more higher concentrations in much produce from Europe or California, for that matter, and wild mushrooms easily containing 10-100+ times more.

    It's not all relative, but you got to be able to recognize when something's actually NOT crazy 'alarming'.

      Hmmn, over time, the cumulative body burden increases a great deal. So while a 50Bq/Kg amount may not sound like much, the body burden would be far higher, over time.

      Code Shutdown has done the calculations and can address this better than I can.

      Thought I'd read 5Bq/Kg eaten in fish or meat would over time cause the body to have a 200Bq/Kg body burden of Cesium 137, for example. Which would likely cause death from cancer or some other lethal disease. Not sure how long it would take the disease process to manifest, but 200Bq/Kg is a high body burden for something like Cesium 137. (The risk no doubt varies depending on the isotope one's exposed to.)

        It was LOVELY to eat some seafood again … without fear. Maybe I should have been afraid. But it wasn't Pacific seafood.

          Actually, I (personally) spoke to one of our council members for sustainable fisheries a few years ago, he happened to have a (restaurant) franchise too.

          Had some hake, chips and a beer there (cheap stuff, good quality, nice atmosphere).

          Anyway, I mentioned fukushima to him, and he had no clue. Then he mentioned, particularly for prawn, supply has changed quite dramatically recently, in that he doesn't really receive what he orders. Figure it out.

          And remember, that's South Africa, about as far removed from Fukushima as you can get.

    This is always so darn hard to do, but here goes.

    Talk about finding radiation. We recently made a shocking discovery that was reported to ENE here to post as a story about a month ago, but Admin did not post it.

    For your shocking pleasure this report will be posted here in bits and pieces. Do the homework people and use your tools to verify and report your own results. This is a worthy story that deserves its own thread.

    From 10-10-17

    It was a horrible and shocking discovery to make this warm sunny Tuesday that started out as another beautiful fall Indian Summer Day. Little could anyone know that today would reveal a secret that no one could have ever had any concept of, except the evil that causes it.

    Some history: long has there been a big proven suspicion that propane being burned indoors IS RADIOACTIVE. Higher radiation than the normal background amounts in this area of So. Colorado, and northern New Mexico.

    Yes, that’s right. EVERYONE that is using propane in the four corners region, perhaps the country, or even the world, is sucking in forced radioactive heated air from the burned propane. Most likely Natural gas too.

    This is also why so many heart attacks happen during the winters. Counts upwards in the 70-80’s CPM(100 CPM is alert level) have been measured indoors during past winters by placing the counter in front of the blowing air from a propane heater. We do not use Natural gas, so that still needs to be checked.

    cont…

    • James Tekton James Tekton

      cont.

      Our families have stopped using that forced air propane heater, and will always use a small wood stove after finding this information to be true. It has done the job of getting through a few good winters so far. Anyone can easily check this out with a good counter. Not a cheap one like many people get. The cheap counters do not count as much as a mid-range or high dollar one will.

      There was a time when we checked the small propane tank we have for BBQing and it was found to be hot(radioactive) too. We wondered about the source and found that areas north and south had been nuked to get it to come out of the ground. Why else would they frak gas using nukes to do it? More so, why do they sell this poisonous substance to people to heat with?

      Propane comes from Natural Gas. Here is some info about LPG and Nat gas:

      • James Tekton James Tekton

        cont.

        So when the propane truck showed up for the regular winter filing just recently, here was the chance to check it out. A big source of the propane. Not the original source, but a carrier itself to see how hot(radioactive) it might be. On prior occasions the driver was told that there was the possibility that the propane he was carrying was radioactive. He did not believe it then, so this was the opportunity to prove, or not prove the suspicion was true.

        It was decided to place the counter on the nozzle on the side of the truck. The good man offered to open up the relief valve and was immediately told, no thanks, this will do. Rads would go through the metal. In the setting of the counter on a spot atop of the nozzle on the side of the truck where it would count and not fall off, the audio sound was on and it was already ticking very rapidly. No doubt this was going to be a high reading, but how high? It would take ten minutes to do the quick counting to find out.

        ….

        • James Tekton James Tekton

          cont.

          We waited and talked some more and then the timer went off. Beep beep…beep beep…beep beep…it was the sound signaling the end of a ten minute count. We could already tell it was going to be high, but had no idea how high. The count registered 1671 total counts in ten minutes, for a count of 167 CPM. We were shocked! Simply waylaid to see how high this reading was just sitting atop the nozzle. Did not even want to imagine what the count would have been if the propane gas was openly exposed to the counter.

          Then, for further evidence of what we found, the hand held counter was placed up close against the outside of the truck almost touching the large tank itself to check what the reading would be in uSv/hr. It actually went higher before this picture below was taken when it was at .772 uSv/hr.
          The poor guy was shocked. That made two of us. Totally shocked to find out this horrible truth. Told him to mumms the word, not to tell his boss, and to talk to his wife about how important this job really was, considering it was killing him at a faster rate than anyone could even have imagined.

            This added to the abnormally high background radiation of the area, Fuckushima, Hanford, and all the other leaking nuke plant fallout coming from west of the Rockies, makes this one heck of a dangerous occupation, much less how harmful it is for the average person who is using Propane or Natural gas heating indoors. The very word ghastly, comes to mind.

            Someone mentioned the ashes of the wood and a measurement from that some time back revealed that yes, it too is hot. Not as bad as the propane truck or forced air heating though. The ashes are more or less contained then disposed of into a burn pile for more recycling. Remember, radiation only adds up in the body. It never goes away.

            Here below are the pictures that were taken on 10-10-17 of the propane truck and counter in action. What a day to remember. For any who doubt how dangerous this is, you are invited to get your own higher-end Geiger counter(Inspector Alert) and check this yourself. If you do your homework and learn about slow radiation poisoning, the causes and effects, you will not be happy to find out what you will uncover. The sad part of this story is, no one will care or do anything to stop it. Big babylonian oil oligarchs will not stop robbing and killing the people. When it comes right down to it, the really extremely horrid part of this is the fact that people are actually paying the propane suppliers to kill them slowly. Paying big money to kill themselves off. Is that sane?

                A couple of things to ponder.

                Ventless indoor gas heaters/fireplaces.

                Direct-vent indoor units.

                Forced Air/exchanger style heaters.

                They are all very different, in the context of this discussion, very important are the differences.

                A good time to also ponder big cities…like LA…most people heating water/space/clothes drying with nat-gas. Where is all the 'flue-gas' going?
                Most of the electric power generated by…nat-gas?

                And your burger/steak,,,on a propane grill, bathing in it, your clothing bathing in it on every dryer ride, your oven/stove,,,a long list of stuff.

                It is an interesting subject.

      • q Farthington MacMananus

        James, do you reckon that radioactivity associated with propane is perhalps related to PAHs (I have a very strong hunch about this, buckyballs and such)?

        However, in saying only that, I wouldn't be mentioning the radioactive materials used in LNG (if you could even call it that, honestly) extraction.

      Hi James, did you read the Enenews stories about the gas well and storage blowouts in Southern California awhile back? Aliso Canyon. It's near Simi Valley, and not far from the Rocketdyne site.

      Posting links, our "search" function appears to be MIA.

      It was a big story. Reporting covered uranium and radon found in natural gas operations. It occurs naturally underground.

      That might add a missing piece to your puzzle.

      There was some question as to whether or not the toxic materials were being blown out of gas mains away from the site. Found a graph showing leakage but not sure if I posted it here. Robert Kennedy Jr's. firm was investigating and was planning to represent people harmed down there. Bad scenario and many evacuees. People's animals were dropping dead, much more.

      http://enenews.com/experts-la-gas-leak-worst-case-emission-beyond-told-ive-never-release-magnitude-before-toxic-plume-flowing-directly-communities-very-little-dilution-video

      "Experts: Magnitude of LA gas leak 'way beyond what any of us have ever been told' — 'It’s a worst case emission' — 'I’ve never seen a release of this magnitude' — It’s flowing directly into towns with “very little dilution… a worst case scenario” — 'Very dangerous condition… be very, very concerned' (VIDEO)"
      You should be able to locate lots of news coverage and great comments here.

      Hello James. The issue as some of us have perceived getting stories published here is this: unless the story is documented by multiple news sources (media) it likely won't be published here. Stories are also typically "big" news, that is, of great concern in an area or community.

      Fukushima related news typically gets top coverage, followed by news re: nuclear plants in Japan and the U.S. And news about fish die-offs, etc., where it can be related to radioactive contamination.

      Admin hasn't covered the Bayou Corne stories for a long time.

      I wanted to see stories published about the "bomb trains" carrying light, sweet crude from frac sites. But that never got published here.

      I'm not sure why some kinds of stories are published, while others aren't. I'd suggest sending Admin. links to multiple media stories about the same subject if you can. Not sure how else to noodge these things onto Admin's radar.

    • James, interesting stuff.

      I will make an article on that unless you object

      being an HVAC engineer, I know that most heating systems have a heat exchanger to keep the combustion products separate from the air going the house. So any radiation in the propane would not be delivered to the house, but vented outside. So it might not be as bad as you think, but its good observation.

      I have been testing air filters with 2 identical Radiation Inspector Alert Geigers. One with the alpha window closed. With the Alpha window closed, the readings are almost the same as background.

      Don't be befuddled, this means that ALL of the radiation on the air filters is Alpha, not good!

      • AirSepTech AirSepTech

        It would be interesting to come up with data on xx rads per cu ft of gas, probably the million cf mark.

        Would be different for LPG/LNG/pipeline, region, all kinds of stuff.

        California burned 2,400 TRILLION btu's worth of nat-gas, 2015.
        2,400,000,000,000,000 or 76,000,000 btu a second. Kind of hard to visualize big #'s.
        About 90,000btu/gal for LPG. So Cali rips thru 850gallons a second…if it were LPG. Gotta be some rads floating around. Natural gas has less heat content/vol, so more volume. Yikes.
        And Texas gets rich.

        I wonder if algore/moonbeam has a chart on this as a global warming detail?

        Anyway, it all has a bit of radiation in it, as you said it goes out the flue, and into the environment. Your roof, car, kids playyard, garden, dogs favorite crapzone. A little stays in the house, depending on appliances. Most of it daughters down to lead.

        I think I read a study, PennState?, seemed to 'go away'. 😆
        Move along, no harm here.

        It is interesting, because of the volumes involved.

        Yes,

        Stock, hard copy it all and place it on your site.

        Big love to all respondents…lets continue to check and monitor this. If you have a gas man show up, try to check his truck, nozzles, or the outside of his truck. Again, be reminded that the consensus is, that the cheaper giegers will not give counts like the better counters. I have tried to reach out to Jessy on BP to see if I could borrow one of the giegers he sells for this kind of testing purposes, but he does not respond to my mail. Selah. It would be interesting to do some comparison tests with different counters counting the same environments and samples.

        Will respond more later after reading some of these comments.

    WOAHHHH!!!! HOLY BAT SHIT CRAZY!!!!!

    I have said it once and I will say it again! The best intelligence comes from the comment sections.

    The plan is to take out the crown prince. Then kill King Salman. With the King and the Crown Prince dead, who is next in line? Yup. The former deputy crown prince, Muqrin. So, posing as terrorists who wanted to buy the guns for some terrorist attack, they dupe the CIA or FBI to supply the guns to the death squad. Their real plan is to climb the stairs right after the deal and kill the VIP in the floors above them. This is why the weapons cashe was located on the 32nd floor. They would only have to climb a few stairs or take the elevator up a little to start the killing. Now, here's what happened that night:

    Paddock is made the patsy. Why? Because if a failed Saudi assassination attempt was responsible for the deaths, if the FBI/CIA had supplied the guns that killed 58 innocent people (not counting Paddock since he's an asset), then two things would happen. One, we would demand that we go to war with Saudi Arabia. And two, which ever organization that Paddock worked for

    The Vegas shooting was an attempted assassination of a Saudi Royal Prince who was stating on he top floors of the Mandalay Bay on October first according to this posting on Reddit .
