VIDEO: Children of US Navy sailors suffering from cancers after Fukushima exposure — “I couldn’t move… so much pain… I have leukemia” — More kids with thyroid cancer — Father: “We couldn’t figure it out… his body was changing” — Sailor: Right side of my body is shriveling up, one arm now almost 5 inches smaller than other

The Guardian, Aug 20, 2014:

  • Darius was diagnosed with leukaemia [and] spent a month in hospital in early 2013, soon after his diagnosis. “I thought I was going to have to bury him,” [James Jackson, US Navy] recalled. [He] now has a catheter in his chest […] He is still undergoing treatment for leukaemia, still stuck in hospital […] “I want this just to go away, and to just fast forward the next four years.”
  • Sailors and their children [say they’ve] suffered thyroid and other cancers, leukaemia, birth defects, and a variety of medical conditions including infertility […] Theodor Holcomb, who served on the USS Reagan aircraft carrier, died of a rare cancer on 24 April.
  • At the time [of 3/11], Lieutenant Steve Simmons was in peak physical condition. […] By late 2011, Simmons […] experienced a blackout. The episode – accompanied by high fevers, swollen lymph nodes and muscle spasms – was the start of a physical deterioration that, by the time of his retirement from the navy last month, left Simmons confined to a wheelchair.
  • In early April, [Mike Sebourn] was promoted to radiation decontamination officer, issued with a handheld radiation device, Tyvek suit and respirator […] his son Kimi, who was then eight, went through bouts of extreme nausea and severe nose bleeds, missing a month of school. “The kid could not stop throwing up, over and over and over. It happened every single day […] Not knowing what was wrong with my son was absolutely heartbreaking and just tore me up inside.”

Transcript — The Guardian, August 19, 2014:

  • James Jackson, US Navy: My son and I were over there in the region, at the time we stayed about 3 weeks afterwards to continue to help with the relief efforts. What was put out was we didn’t hav anything to worry about.
  • Darius Jackson: I just started hurting, I just started screaming, I couldn’t move because my body was in so much pain.
  • James: We couldn’t figure out what was going on with him, but his body was changing.
  • Darius: On New Year’s Day they admitted me to the hospital, a few days, on January 7th, the doctor came in and said I have leukemia. At first I didn’t know what it was.
  • James: We were ~11 days from losing his life. No parent should have to bury their child.
  • Mike Sebourn, US Navy: At the time of the Fukushima disaster I was stationed about 125 mile south of Fukushima. My job was to lead a team of 18 sailors and to measure beta and gamma radiation… A month into the operation I started getting acute sickness — my son did too. He would go through vomiting fits, he would throw up 30 to 40 times in a row. I’ve been having issues that started about 4 months after my exposure to radiation. I have acute attenuation in my right arm and right leg. When they measure my right arm, it’s actually 11 cm smaller than my left. Unfortunately, it’s been 3 years and they just can’t figure out what’s wrong — in the meantime my body just continues to kind of shrivel up.

    This video is riddled with the typical "they think" "don't know how" why can't they just admit these people were radiated and they will be getting radiation exposure illnesses. It is the lying that drives people crazy.

    David Brenner says less risk of exposure at Fukushima than a CT scan?

    Fuku you David Brenner….if there is no problem with radiation go take a swim at Fukushima Beach…you lying nuke bastard.

    • OldFool

      One CT scan is supposedly less than 10 millisieverts = 1 REM.
      The massive vomiting and diarrhea of the sailors correspond to a dose of radiation (outside, and inside by ingestion by drinking water and by breathing) in excess of 200 REM = 2 Sieverts. If there was any major hair loss, the dose was in excess of 300 REM, but the reports did not mention major hair loss.
      Several different types of leukemias and lymphomas would be the most common and typical early consequences, followed by other primary cancers and even secondary metastatic cancers. They will be suffering many different health problems for the remainder of their lives.

      • nedlifromvermont

        So it takes an Old Fool to tell us the truth …

        Thank you kindly, Sir.

        Three Sieverts for massive hair loss … Got it!


        • OldFool

          Thank you. Ned, it is worth mentioning that the underlying assumption for the preceding REM numbers was that the sailors irradiation were from either gamma rays or beta particles – where 1 Rad = 1 REM. In other words, medical texts correlate the symptoms to the Rad (Grays) exposures. Neutrons would be 5-20 times worse than gamma rays in REMs, but neutrons can only travel many hundreds of feet in air – in theory. The sailors off-shore were presumably far enough away to not be hit by neutrons from the shore. Alpha particles would be 20 times worse than gamma rays in REMs, but alpha particles only travel 1-2 inches in air. But if they inhaled particles with alpha emitters, like plutonium and its siblings; or beta emitters like strontium and its siblings – their outlook is really not good regardless of their REM doses.

    • Jinxie1953

      Oh newsblackoutusa I hear you! It does drive a body crazy! Even if they expose it properly on the world media I doubt if anyone would panic because no one is interested! In the meantime parents go on feeding contaminated food to their children coz they don't know not to. The disgrace is that few Governments actually seem to care about their own people. Horrifying

    Let's see how long it takes for U.S. media to pick this one up

    • newsblackoutUSA newsblackoutUSA

      bo- even if they pick it up the video content is not congruent with the headline…as usual. The headline always makes it sound like finally someone is telling the truth, then the misinformation people like David Brenner from Columbia puts his face out there to say the sailors were exposed to less radiation than they would be getting a CT scan.

      A more proper title for this video would be "Experts keep denying the effects of low level radiation in order to continue the nuclear poisoning of the planet"

      • bo bo

        Oh I see your point now.. very true, NBO.
        I realize I have committed 'skim and post' – my bad.

        It's kind of a pattern on enenews.
        We sit here in our straitjackets in our isolation cells… and each time an article posts it's as though we hear the guards pass by jangling his keys.. 'finally!!! The days of social marginalization is over !!'
        …but he's never here to release us. He just walks past our cell, toying the cell key in his hand, whistling.

                Oh for pete's sake, Enenews is not run by Berkeley.

                Enenews is run by one person doing all this work on his own, as Enenews admin stated in a Facebook comment awhile back.

                Enenews admin is also very grateful for donations for his hard work and that's why you'll get a personal thank you when you donate.

                Do you really think Berkeley would run a site like this?

                Let's also remember how good and generous the Enenews community can be to each other, as proven when a few members of the Enenews community were down on their luck and it was members of the Enenews community who donated $$ to help them out.

                Enenews seems to heave a large majority of very decent, good people.

                Don't judge Enenews in its totality because a few bad apples comment on the site.

                  Its not a judgement,its an assessment,you are projecting and cannot back up one fact you present. You can't. There is no solid answer to this. There hasn't been since the beginning look it up.

                      The site is controlled opposition whether intentionally planned that way or not. Just look at the rep. it has. Discredit the site is like saying Fukushima is not serious. There is no way to discredit the facts of Fukushima. And that is what WE here KNOW. it cannot be exaggerated or overblown. We are talking about likely a 6 core melt down, at the very least 4. at the very least. All of these melt downs are hemorrhaging into the sea day and night for eternity. Expose themselves to this world? Are the site proprietors to cower in fear. I don't believe that for a second. not a minute. If nothing else given the profile of admin as presented they certainly are equipped to fight for their first amendment rights and a business etc.

                      truly brilliant, GQR2. Your 11:54-am statement that ENENews is "…controlled opposition at its finest!!", merits further exploration: If such were true, are you saying ENENews is a psyop? If so, do you feel intimidated in such environment?

                      I ask, as I find it fascinating (from my observations of your previous comments out here) that you've rarely (if ever) failed to speak your mind. On the contrary, you seem quite at home here.

                      In all fairness to the questions you raise, knowing the ingredients (interested parties) that go into (motivate) a slushy (operation), could be pertinent to maintaining one's health. Between the Yakuza and IAEA, I'd definitely want to know who's at the controls. Perhaps those who run this site, feel equally vulnerable to these forces?

                      Regardless who's who, we still enjoy (within reason) unrestrained means to express our thoughts with others. Your very critique of this site's administration is evidence that we have unprecedented freedom to express ourselves on ENENews.

                      When it comes to self-destructive behavior, it's not as important knowing who's behind the curtain, as it is speaking truth-to-power. One might find solace in thinking of it as a "reach around"…

I am not criticizing the good people here myself included i am just observing from a distance while removing all projection and emotional attachments to what i want to be true so i can see what may be,and very likely is true even if its not what i want to see.

                Isn't that what makes Enenews great? There are no sacred cows, as we are heading to the end game (according to the rad readings where I live).

                Speaking for myself, at this point in the game I question everything.

        wow, newsblackoutUSA, the people on this website especially need to get the nomenclature right. It's NOT "low level radiation" — it's CHRONIC radiation!! Ongoing, escalating, cumulative. I think it's bad for people to keep playing into the "low level" myth.

        Me, I don't ever want to hear the term "low level" again. It's the WORST of the lies. And it's the FIRST of the lies that has to be dissembled publicly to open any way to educate.

        • newsblackoutUSA newsblackoutUSA

          WNTF- what do you mean "the people on this website especially need to get the nomenclature right." Did you watch the video? The "expert" stated in the video the term "low level radiation" .

          BTW, there is danger from all levels of man made radiation, since all biologic lifeforms on this planet evolved without the nuclear poisons present. Low, high, middle, I don't anyone to be exposed to any of it, nor do I want to hear another "expert" tell me it is safe.

          I am wondering why no one seems to see the incongruity of the video description in comparison to the content of the video.

      The first protesters were the very ones who did the math to be able to conjure up Pandoras box. They said don't open it and many felt remorse and horror for what they had done. They knew. They couldn't stop the madness.
      70 years and look at where nuclear is now.
      The tide is changing in the only way that a multi trillion dollar industry can. It's just not financially worth it. We all know what makes that world turn. The effort on renewables will pay off. The sun and wind arei a shure bet now. Invest!
      The heat is on, nuclear power is dying. The investors are playing that out right now. Don't worry, they are numb too.
      Enenews is just one of many venues to this end. It's working. All of it, and focusing on ENEnews's part with any animosity is foolish at best. At worst it is a mandate.
      I donated long ago. I should again. I was pleasantly surprised to receive an email. I followed up on it. I'm not worried by this sites intent. It's humorous to think that this aggregate news source is somehow black hat for nuclear. There's cognitive dissonance for ya.

        There are a number of shills here at this site. Just not obvious like moefoe, which is just part of the gig. Shills that have been here a long time, that compliment each other in the agendas that they are persuing. Shills that appear to be genuine and have fooled most it seems. Polished like a politician, to do the damage control that they are paid to do. Many will find this hard to believe, but in reality, to believe otherwise is naïve and to some degree, a product of mass media and education dumb down effect.

        GRQ2, for being honest and acting in good faith is ganged up on and ridiculed by some that may very well be shills themselves. Suggesting that he leave is ludicrous if we are to have an open and honest forum here.

        When one becomes knowledgeable of the issue at hand, coupled with critical thinking, it is not hard to see certain patterns develop regarding certain important issues that TPTB want to keep hidden. Issues that are not related to Fukushima necessarily, it so it seems, are also subject matter here at enenews. This is where the shill comes in to play. Using numerous proven techniques(exposed on the internet) to control the direction of the threads in order to conceal certain facts. Attacking the good faith activist is just one way, as he or she is always outnumbered by the control group.

        Here at enenews, there are shills here everyday and most of the day, almost 24/7. They set the tone for what is to be believed and what not to believe.

          The facts related to this such as HAARP, STUXNET, weather control, TEPCO's abilities and intentions, Japan and the USA's governments prior knowledge, intentions and conduct before and after the fact, are all areas of concern and areas where dis information specialist will focus their attention. all of the issues that prove the three issues above.

          If one that is knowledgeable of the facts stands back and observes what is said and by whom, it is not difficult to spot most of the members that are pushing or concealing hidden agendas. It would appear to someone without the facts, that they are pretty slick, and to some degree that is the case. What I see though at times is pretty sloppy work by some.

          The fact is Enenews has more than it's fair share of posters that have a hidden agenda and have been successfully controlling the direction of this website which has for the most part, concealed the critical information that everyone needs to know.

          Sometimes they resort to threats of fear in order to silence the activist, it is wide open and there are no rules.

            The absurd thing about this argument is that the Japanese own Westinghouse and GE-Hitachi, Hitachi-GE, the nuclear companies in the US that build nuclear reactors in the US and around the world. There is no way they would ruin their reputation by destroying their reactors in Japan. And Israel won't go against the US, because they are dependent on the US for foreign aid for their military weapons.

            And the argument to get rid of the Federal Reserve is actually instigated by the elites themselves. As before 1929, without the Federal Reserve, the elite will steal all the bank money for themselves and leave everyone else with nothing.

            We saw how Neal Bush stole a huge amount of money from the Savings and Loan Companies which weren't insured by the Federal Reserve.

            The only enemy of Japan is Russia or China, two countries who own their nuclear industry and who compete with Japan to build nuclear reactors in other countries and to supply nuclear fuel.

            Russian Leader Implies Japan Earthquake was Triggered by Secret Weapon
            “Four months ago on Russian TV, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, the controversial leader of Russia’s ultra-nationalist Liberal Democratic Party and the State Duma’s deputy speaker, went on a rant threatening to use new, secret weapons that can “destroy any part of the planet within 15 minutes.” [1] Zhirinovsky said that with these weapons there would be “no explosion, no ray burst. Not some kind of laser, not lightining. It’s a calm and quiet weapon instead with which whole continents will be put to sleep forever.” [2]
            “A recent Financial Times article titled Cameron’s missed Moscow gambit focused on a specific area of the Zhirinovsky interview relative to the Japanese earthquake and tsunami:
            “’Russia, he said, had developed a new secret weapon that would soon unleash non-explosive but massive destruction on the world. What was it, asked the interviewer, with some interest? Mr Zhirinovsky replied that it was secret, but one only had to look at the Japanese tsunami for a clue – and then to think about Russia’s dispute with Japan about the possession of the Kurile Islands.”’[3]
            “Here’s a partial transcript:

              Reporter: ‘There was that tsunami in Japan, right?’
              Zhirinovsky: ‘I say, if you want even the tiniest Kuril Island from us, you will have to dig in the wreckage and debris of their buildings. And, 120 million of you will all die! And, that goes for the rest of the world too. Everybody should start thinking about their future.’
              “Four islands, which Russia calls the Southern Kurils and Japan calls the Northern Territories, have been the subject of a dispute between the two nations since the end of World War II. The dispute arose due to ambiguities in Yalta agreement and subsequent disagreements about its meaning….”

    Cells continue to function after the nucleus has been murdered. It's interesting that the reproductive element in a cell can be removed, and the cell goes on trying to "survive". This fact of biology has become more apparent over the last decade.

    One problem of being denucleusized is that the organism has difficulty healing from injury. This is the main effect of X ray exposure. The exposure from tiny fuel particles will probably cause much more immediate problems imho.

      • hbjon hbjon

        It has been proven fact that spectra emissions from electrons that are close to the nucleus of an atom can cause cancer in sufficient doses. X ray, gamma, and microwave type photons. So, we know that the nucleus of a cell can be killed by this. The cells outer membrane has little feeler hairs that sense its surrounding environment. Those hairs retract when the cell believes that radiation is affecting biology. The cell is afraid of that which causes injury or death to other cells or organelles. Obviously, these injured cells affect the behavior of the entire organism.

        Thanks Homolumina, it is a good book to read. But imho, belief has little effect on ones biology and to prove it, drink a bottle of Patron and see if you can believe yourself sober. LOL

            Any substance that interferes with the natural function of cells, will not produce beneficial results in the long run. If the organism made a computation on the optimum solution that says cells must be destroyed, it can and will destroy cells. This may be an autoimmune disease.

            Epigenetics does not explain all observed phenomena. Signals are not felt on cell membranes when a cell is sick or injured. A cell can only hold its breath for so long when exposed to toxins. hbjon

          Very interesting is Dr. Fairlie's research on the large amounts of radiation released during refueling of nuclear power plants.

          Nuclear power plants are refueled every 12-18 months; it takes hundreds of personnel and here's what Dr. Fairlie says about radiation released during refueling:

          “…NPPs emit much larger amounts of radioactive noble gases during refuelling than during normal power operation. From the new data, Nuremberg physicist and statistician, Dr Alfred Körblein, estimates that, at its maximum value, the concentration of noble gas emissions during refueling was 500 times greater than during normal reactor operation. He also estimates that about two thirds of the NPP’s annual emissions occur during refuelling.”

          “In order to refuel, reactor pressure vessels must be opened up: this releases large volumes of radioactive gases and vapours to the local environment. These include noble gases, H-3 (tritium), carbon-14, and iodine-131.”

          “Yes. People living near nuclear power stations and downwind from them will be exposed to high doses of radiation during these emissions spikes”

    • nedlifromvermont

      Hey Plowboy: simple answer: It can't … you must wait for these isotopes to 'decay' to a neutral state.

      The 'iodine-131' isn't really iodine-131 at all … it is a synthetic (man-made) element which mimics iodine until it decays into something else … the decay, beta release, alpha particle or gamma ray, is when the damage can occur and does. The particle (isotopic atom) is a uranium daughter, and retains the high electron volt energy potential in it's nucleus, which was put there (conservation of energy) when the uranium was created in the midst of a cataclysmic explosion of a giant star … a supernova … which is the only environment in which uranium can be created by natural forces … the decay chain energy releases echo and are derived from that primal moment from whence the uranium was forged …

      Hint: We should have left it all (the uranium) in the ground!!!

      By the way … every other element than hydrogen was created in the center of normal functioning or exploding stars …

      So where did all that hydrogen come from??? Maybe Donald Trump?

      peace to you Plowboy!

      • PlowboyGrownUp

        Thanks for the explanation, nedli and obwan.
        Re "electron volt energy potential in the nucleus" – There are no electrons per se in the nucleus, right? – So this nuclear energy is what is holding the neutrons together? And "electron volt" is the measurement of the potential?

        Hydrogen – may from unbound energy somehow condensing back to matter…

        There's just got to be a way…I would like to plow it all under…

Two copies, just in case. Millions of years to do this. Natural selection. Those who survived the onslaught. The ones with the efficient repair mechanisms.

        Whoremesis is a pimped out traveling snake oil sales pitch with fine print your gonna wanna read. Damage from manmade radionuclides automatically goes above and beyond the balance threshold that the body works very hard at to maintain. The body does not need that burden on it's system. Especially after the industrial revolution's chemicals and the nuclear era's damage.

        Fukushima's rapidly expanding area of radionuclide contamination added to the whole body burden that ALL life carries these days is enough. There is no future for humans on this planet if this continues. Nature will make sure it is distributed far and wide.

        Socrates, yes, the inhaled particles can be the most deadly. Becuase they keep emitting in a tiny area and cause cancers. And the external scans I believe do NOT pick them up.

It's not what's evenly spread across a body — there are always concentrations.

    • We Not They Finally

      It's actually become unclear how long things take. That may be proportional to how badly people are hit. Our friend in Pittsburgh got diagnosed with TWO separate cancers 2-1/2 years in — one papillary thyroid cancer, which is still supposed to be a RARE cancer; the other lung cancer for someone who never smoked. The thyroid cancer turned out to be stage four, though she is getting good holistic treatment and seems to be rallying.

      We were mystified becuase Pittsburgh isn't the West Coast and we thought that the heaviest hits were the West Coast. And maybe that was substantially true with the initial plume; but then just some weeks back, we heard a Leuren Moret interview and she said because of the wind currents at the time, the two cities hardest hit in the U.S. form the initial plume were Melbourne, FL and Pittsburgh!

      "Mystery solved," though we are still angry. But that was TWO separate cancers and just at the 2-1/2 yeaer mark, so there is no set rule about this. As levels escalate, maybe all bets are off. So sadly.

      • Socrates

        High doses of insoluable alpha-emitters early in life are most effective in inducing pulmonary carcinoma. Small-cell.would be the most common.

        The induction of pulmonary carcinoma has been studied in both man and animals. It is hard to extrapolate from animals because of anatomical differences in lung structure.

        Without knowing the composition of the particles and the dose, it will be a waiting game. Some would have gotten pulmonary cancer anyway.

        Proving where you got your cancer from is not that easy. Beagle studies used higher doses of Pu. Many studies examine other exposures such as smoking and benzene that occurred prior to the radioactive particles being inhaled.

In 100 years' time will it be renamed The Skeleton Coast, with Hanford known as Ground Zero in The Forbidden Zone? Who knows. It has all been unfolding at glacial pace, and we'll all be long gone … or not, ha ha. Or we could all be completely wrong, and this stuff is as harmless as a bunch of bananas. If that's the case, then be on the lookout for pigs with wings.

        • Roger, I'm wishing the west coast watchdog groups well over there amidst the general ingrained mindset. I would hope WIPP being "unavailable" is a new handy talking point for them to use on trusting people that think any agencies have waste storage under control. The weakened Wanapum Dam…another new development. Mother Nature continues to play her unbiased hand as well.

          The not in my back yard phrase certainly takes on new meaning these days. 🙂

          I moved away from Seattle in 1975, first to SW OR during the back to the land movement that pushed so many young families towards honoring sustainable lifestyles. A whole generation of like minded people back then, scattered every direction…leaving the comfort zones to learn the lessons of being away from previous friends, our social or urban watchdog group connections and we committed to start over on isolated raw acreages in many cases. Our families thought we were naive, totally nuts and going backwards, not forward. Ken Kesey lived and chronicled those chaotic times of new tribes forming with colorful honesty in his writings.

          Here we are, three generations down that road later, and still struggling to clean up the messes we perceived then and now to be created by power wielding global psychopaths.

          We're just a little blip in time with no knowledge of outcome, but at least we dare to try.

        Last chants I've seen a lot of news come out of kings county ..and I'm from the north east ..what is the news station Wkmo ?.
        Wish I was in such a like minded community

        • Hi Clam, I really don't know what WKmo is, sorry. I'm not in the fast multi-tasking electronic communication loop since there are no cell signals here and I use my dial-up primarily for a computer line, slow though it is when trying to research. I wish I could chase down everything I'd like, but only so many hours in the day to do the ones I do pick.

          The activist skills I had begun over 40 years ago have morphed many times through the decades and I find discretion is most often the better part of valor if one does not wish to attract the eye of Smaug to certain projects.

          I do what I call a graceful rhythm pace… picking where and when to surface my energy and like for many aging rural self employed people, money is often scarce and physical abilities are limiting.

          I must be doing OK though…most of my blood related family still things I'm nuts, still doing my "thang". 🙂

            Hi there lCT ..
            I may be off with the name it's a broadcast station out that way that I am continually amazed by ..much more liberal news ..I may be having an old age moment ..looks like we both been in the fold got five years on me

            • Hi back Clam and if it's liberal radio?, it's likely to have a weak broadcast signal. I luck out sometimes with cloud bounces, etc here in this valley surrounded by rocky terrain, except for a straight shot to Spokane (no liberal to be had there). But I can get 2 or 3 Canadian stations and some other big ones on AM after the sun goes down.

              It's funny, I know what most people are getting fed via TV however by asking my mom (who's really really old, lol, we're not). I ask what she's seeing on the news and in commercials. That explains why I'm pretty much addicted to the computer screen, especially e-news and any TV/radio/vids that also have transcripts.

              🙂 Another thing while I'm yakking….I've seen some posters complaining that enews is useless or controlled? I actually don't care how many folks aren't visibly posting or discussing. It doesn't indicate anything other than which posts people relate to and choose to respond to at any given moment.

              What the unseen people are getting from the reports and discussions here is immeasurable (I personally know 5 lurker friends who aren't actual members but are proactive within their circles). So I extrapolate that and can feel all the energy and ideas just from this place alone, being passed on to spread the word. Particularly if it's new and not some focus they've already researched and become involved with in past years. Human curiosity is a neat trait, one of our strong points I think, is to appeal to…

    Knowledge, talent must be utilized to tackle radioactive water problem
    7:35 pm, August 20, 2014
    The Yomiuri Shimbun
    … The seriousness of the current situation cannot be understated. …

    – Why not? the serious of the current situation has been understated for three and a half years. Wildly, mindbogglingly understated. It's okay by me, I don't really care, I don't live there. But the people who live there, the people who work for the Shimbun … I dunno. To cope with reality, you first have to face reality, admit reality, acknowledge the reality of Fukushima. To do that, you first have to stop understating the seriousness of the current situation. If you don't, then some consequences that three and a half years ago were perhaps avoidable or at least amenable to mitigation, become increasingly unavoidable. We are now in the midst of unavoidable consequences. All of us, participants and spectators alike, are now busy with wait and see.

      • rogerthat

        From the same Yomiuri Shimbun article:
        … About 1,000 tanks are being used to store radioactive water on the grounds of the Fukushima power plant. However, the tanks are nearing their capacity of 550,000 tons. TEPCO plans to expand the capacity to more than 800,000 tons by the end of this fiscal year, but the contaminated water is expected to exceed even this amount before long. There is also a greater risk of water leaking as the number of tanks increase. …

        – Let's put this another way. It is now late August, 2014. They have since March 2011 (3 1/2 years ago) built enough tanks to hold 550,000 tonnes of water, and they are just about all full. By the end of the fiscal year (March 2015) they will have storage for 800,000 tons, ''but the contaminated water is expected to exceed even this amount before long''. What does this tell you? It tells you contaminated water is a problem. They have known this since March 2011. What have they done to solve the problem? Firstly, they have jerry-built tanks that leak. Secondly, they have failed to build and operate a successful decontamination plant. Tests have just begun on a new decontamination apparatus, and they will look at the results from those tests to see if it is a satisfactory solution.
        Meanwhile, everything that isn't in the tanks just runs into the Pacific Ocean. Unless something effective is done,
        the entire nuclear fuel rod inventory of Fukushima Daichi 1 (2200 tonnes) is, over time, going to end up in the…

    Fukushima exposure..We all have been exposed to it. It's a waiting game to see if/when it will effect us. (Most likely it's when)

    How many eat the food from our coast lands, breathe in the winds, get caught in the rain, and even drink water. Think again if you believe this is not contaminated.

    Cancer is horrible, no one should have to go through it. I'm sorry for the people and their loved ones who are going through it now.

    Who will pay for the help all the people will need? The same people who made millions off these monster plants, maybe the people who allowed these plants, I don't think so.

    Who knows, maybe they will wipe us out with another type of disaster, just so they don't have to admit to anything.

    They don't need this many people in the world anyway for their agenda of a NWO.

    At this point, I don't put anything past them, because they had already known these plants are killing machines.

    I rarely ever post anything here and am by no means any sort of expert on radiation. That being said I am extremely interested in what is being shared here at ENEnews and I recommend your site to anyone and everyone I have any occasion to chat with.
    I did spend 33+ years as a Registered Nurse. All of my career was spent providing care to men, with a strong focus on holistic health and wellness and avoidance of all the toxic garbage that is sold as food, or toxins in house hold, personal care, or clothing and furniture products. Essentially I worked with them to understand how their body works and how to take charge, get well and healthy and stay that way.
    It seems that this is a very like-minded group.
    Each day as I read my newsletter from ENEnews I try to determine how to get this information to a larger audience. There are several things I would like to suggest, with all due respect to the group.
    One thing I think might be used to reach a much larger audience would be for the people who manage this site to create a "reporter" account at BIN….before its news website. While that website allows anyone to post news stories it has a huge readership. There is much junk there also. I always look at their site daily because I do find those "diamond" articles…….not found elsewhere and rock solid. Many people who leave comments there are looking for rock solid news and I think that the news articles from ENEnews would be greatly appreciated.

  • Gabe Gabe

    Another site I think might be interested in the ENEmews article would be Veterans Today. They have a huge veteran readership and might be very glad to have ENEnews provide articles.
    Another place that could get the ENEnews information out is blog talk radio…….both John B Wells as well as the Hagmanns. The Hagmanns have a site called homelandsecurityus and a worldwide listening audience.

    I don't know if anyone here could or would want to connect with those sites but it is only by a fluke that I stumbled upon ENEnews. I am certain there are many people who would relish your news and this may subsequently get people concerned and angry enough to demand change.

    I have the deepest appreciation for this website and I know that my friends do also.
    I forward your newsletters to a woman in Tokyo……..she is reluctant to subscribe as she does not want to be on the gov. Radar but she is deeply grateful for the information.

      Hey Gabe welcome !
      Just want to say
      People do come here everyday and take these stories and get them out to social media , they may break it down to the source as this is news aggregated and not give credit for finding it here
      I'm all over social media so I see
      I do believe also that before it's news has had a lot from here .
      Just saying …

      Always interested to hear a professional tell ways to cleanse your body from toxins in today's world.

      I'm sorry to hear your friend feels like she needs to stay under the radar, can totally understand why.

    Sometimes a simple phrase seems to sum up the moment and the everything of it all at the same time. WindorSolarPlease's phrase, "because they had already known these plants are killing machines." is one of those phrases.
    Does anyone else see the future as I do where the radiation levels have increased to a point where life as we know it has ceased to exist? That's what I see and it is frightening to think that there are over 400 reactors in over 30 countries world wide, (mostly in the Northern Hemisphere) all aging badly with poor maintenance making things worse….. You know what?… It could be said that the human race and just about all other life on earth is either involved in a murder/suicide or genocide. Meaning that either the top players are insane and intend to die with us….or they have contingency plans that will protect them from the inevitable rise in rad levels that are going to shred our DNA and RNA over a relatively short period of time.
    Either way we have a criminal case against the entities that control these plants and they must be brought to book so the plants can be shut down and decommissioned before we all die. This war against the people of the world has gone too far partly because people haven't woken up to their manipulators and in doing so put them to bed. And quite honestly that's what I'd do. Round up the guilty and keep them in splendid isolation so that they could be monitored 24/7. The only thing denied them would be their freedom…

      Hi West Aussie

      Thank you for the gracious response to my post.

      I do see that we have a huge problem with Fukushima and with all the other nuclear plants and even the storage.

      You are correct, they are old and they won't last up to this ever changing World.

      We are all in trouble and I don't see any fixes.
      We already have an idea of what's ahead, and it's not pretty.

      The planners and the ones who all profited off of the demise of others, think that this will not effect them. Eventually, this will effect them also.
      They will be caught in their own deadly web that they weave.

  • West Aussie West Aussie inflict pain and suffering on anyone else including themselves. Why should we end up acting like them as their jailers? Because if you act like them for whatever reason, you are in danger of becoming them, IMHO.

    • WindorSolarPlease

      You are right West Aussie I don't ever want to be like them, causing harm or the demise of others. I have enough to answer for than to add that to my bad list.
