Scholars at Harvard, Interview with Hisashi Shoji of Fukushima Prefecture, K. Lee Lerner, Apr. 7, 2013: Hisashi Shoji drives a taxi in areas just outside the Fukushima exclusion zone. […] Shoji isn’t allowed to live in his home located about 40km from the power plant […] Shoji says he stopped believing media reports long ago, and that he distrusts local media as much as the national press. “They are all pretty much the same. It’s hard to trust anything in the media […] They don’t report the truth.”

Scholars at Harvard, Interview with local Fukushima official Yoshitomo Shigihara, K. Lee Lerner, Apr. 7, 2013: Shoji’s distrust of the media reports was echoed by Yoshitomo Shigihara, a kuchou, akin to a county commissioner, in Nagadoro, one of 20 wards within Iitate. […] The extent of radiation poisoning remains a contentious issue. Shighara claims that media blindly reports radiation readings and other data provided by TEPCO engineers. Shighara contends that media consistently underreport radiation levels Shighara measures on his brief trips inside the exclusion zone. Moreover, Shighara says reports differ wildly depending on the Ministry reporting . […] ‘The media is dependent on TEPCO, unable to verify the technical data.”

Harvard Gazette, March 11, 2013: Nicolas Sternsdorff Cisterna, a doctoral student in social anthropology at Harvard, has been living in Japan since 2011, trying to better understand people’s perceptions of food safety. […] his doctoral adviser […] immediately realized that the accident made food safety an enormous issue […] “He had a project all ready to go on food and perceptions of the environment in Japan, and then on March 11, the environment abruptly changed for the northern half of Japan, including the Tokyo area” […] In downtown Tokyo […] an upscale home goods store called Catalog House, which after the nuclear disaster began selling produce for the first time, trucking it in from Fukushima […] The store installed a radiation detector […] Assistant manager Toru Sato said in an interview that the detector isn’t just used by customers. Some store employees who grow their own vegetables bring them in for testing. He too is worried about his home, because it is in a radiation hotspot created by one of the plumes from the plant. Some of his neighbors have relocated, with one moving to the southern Japanese island of Okinawa. “It’s still scary,” Sato said.

    One day a Nuclear fuel pellet assembly employee came in to work with both of his ears bandaged.
    When his boss asked him what happened, he explained:

    "Yesterday I was assembling a fuel rod when the phone rang
    and I accidentally answered the fuel pellet container instead of the phone!"

    "Well," the boss said, "that explains one ear, but what
    about the other?" "They called back!"

      News on Soviet newspaper: "Last night the Chernobyl nuclear power plant has met the requirements of energy production provided by the five-year plan in just 4 microseconds".

      A boy asks his grandfather, "Grandpa, is it true that in 2011 there was an accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant?". "Yes, it is true," replied the grandfather stroking the child's head. "And it is true that there were no health consequences?». "Very true," replied the grandfather, caressing the other baby's head.

        Did you just make that up?? Everyone in Russia knew that Chernobyl was life-threatening, even if they did some cover-uping of their own. Nothing like Fukushima!!

        It's actually not amusing at all when you just make stuff up. it's actually somewhat offensive.

        Actually, it would have worked better if you had said "the baby's other head", which I assume is what you really meant.

          that's how I read it too…. meaning two-headed baby.

          • 1555

            Sad, and yes, perhaps offensive to drag out the old joke about the two headed baby.
            After Chernobyl I had a visitor from the Czech Republic, Prague, who came here as a curator with an art exhibition.
            She shared that outside of Prague—2,000 km away from Chernobyl there were 2 headed cattle and a horse born after Chernobyl. That helped me to understand how far serious radiation can travel !

            At the time of Chernobyl I lived in NYC and we had 10,000% radiation 100x the normal while Chicago had 6x the normal.
            Half of population of NYC were on antibiotics for the "laryngitis" as they were told. I had some weird cold symptoms without feeling bad..It was getting better and it was getting worse…Only several days later my Naturopathic Doctor employer figured out with the other holistic practitioners that "better then worse" symptoms directly followed the movement of the Chernobyl plume over the North Pole – which was indeed reaching NYC.

            After we started to distribute highly diluted white iodine to all our patients, and they to their families and workers – it took merely overnight for the laryngitis symptoms to vanish.

            Thank you for all this great info shared here. I share with others so they too can take protective measures.

        That's the kind of quip people used to see in the United States. That is what should be in the funny papers. But it's not.

        I thought the purpose of a newspaper was to sell papers. Anyone ever watch Superman? They chased the hottest stories, and reported them.

        It's funny to watch a city of 60,000 people have a newspaper that reports almost nothing really. Most days, the local paper is one page of world news, funnies that are rarely funny, and a local paper that makes me think. "&^%#@YU% this is the news? Why am I here?

        In history, many a city that size was the biggest city in more than a thousand miles. I don't know what is happening, but it doesn't seem like a free press. It's the company store news. Talking about paper newspapers. They could be exciting again, if they would report the truth about things. Freedom of the press…so thats what they mean when they say that freedom isn't free.

        Funny joke Gasser: here's another one…

        How many people does it take to change a porch light bulb in central Japan?

        Trick question…everybody knows people who glow in the dark don't need a porch light.

        Now more on topic (as if gallows humor is offtopic for any thread):

        "Some of his neighbors have relocated, with one moving to the southern Japanese island of Okinawa."

        SP: The key word for this nuclear disaster is "relocate". The government nuclear researchers decades ago published scenarios of post meltdowns and made a distinction between evacuation and relocation depending on the severity of contamination.

        Relocation means you don't come home in your lifetime…maybe your great-grandchildren's lifetime. Too much long-lived poisons.

        Evacuations mean you can come back in a few months or years.

        Governments do not want to pay relocation fees for many years. They balk at paying evacuation fees and want the people to go back to their contaminated homes regardless of the radiation levels.

        The USSR dealt with the Chernobyl money drain and went under.

        Without foreign assistance Japan is headed down the exact road map of Chernobyl. The difference is the relocation areas in Japan are few,

          Yes, I think you might be right about that unfortunately. Unless, by some mircale, the U.S. somehow helps them financially (if the J-government even allows itself to be helped)… There is of course always China… ahem. Then again, maybe not.

          "Nuclear Madness in Tokyo…host of the 2020 Hunger Games."

          It's getting increasingly more and more scary to think about those Olympics. I just studied a wind-direction map of the Japanese east coast, and it doesn't look good at all in terms of down-wind radiation fallout. I mean, maybe if they were at least trying to fix the situation, I could at least be confident that Tokyo won't be an extension of Fukushima Dai Ichi by then. But they're not, so I can't.

    Hotspots – A very dangerous thing. Putting geiger stations out in the open air where nothing settles is worthless, but of course they know this. Areas where leaves congregate; In cities, there are areas where wind form eddys and trash collects. These are logically areas where radioactive material may also concentrate. These may be areas people walk through on a daily basis. Do we have the tech to deal with this? Of course. We can make sure people avoid such areas, no matter where they are, in near real time. But we don't. Why? Oh that's right, the olympics are coming.

      They also put the radiation detectors in plastic bags to protect the detector from false reads from all the alpha. However, the alpha is the most dangerous risk to eyes, nose, mouth, and lungs. USS Reagan sailors have already had to have optic nerves removed. No discussion at all on alpha safety as if it is not dangerous.

    Does anyone have details about the machine used food testing shown 1:53 in ?

    Is this some kind of semiconductor radiation detector that graphs the gammaspectroscopy on which peaks can be interpreted to correspond with certain isotopes? Anyone knows?

    Any websites that group the for sale types of 'tools for accurately testing for radiation in food' (not just CPM comparisons, but the ones that can identify isotopes and their respective activity levels), shown all together to easily compare them for price, sensitivity, precision, sample size, testing duration for accurate results? etc. Please comment with suggestions if you know good info sources on that. tx.

      It bothers me a lot that media in USA and Europe are silent. It bothers me more that media in Japan is silent. It bothers me the most that institutions that DO have power to reveal certain things are silent. Where did the humanity go? Incorporated?

      For example, a few years ago they found pyramid hills in Bosnia. They started digging and analyzing and what they found is fascinating… The tunnels under the pyramids are very interesting, the deeper you go, the bigger the megaliths (made of ceramic, not stone) and more and more negative ions concentration.

      What does this have to do with Fokushima? Well, Claus Donna apparently knows someone that operates a unique military satellite that can penetrate about two miles in the ground (I forgot the exact number). They mapped all the tunnels with that satellite. The technology is apparently so developed that they can identify substances deep in the ground (metals, bones, empty spaces, …). So I am pretty sure US military and head politicians knows EXACTLY where coriums are.

        Sure, very believable when everything is controlled by the corrupt government and the very rich, just like in america. Lie to the people, tell them everything is fine while using, stealing and robbing whatever makes them wealthier, without regard for people, animals or environment. Future generations are being screwed out of the safe, comfortable, healthy life most of us once had. Sadly, the change is closer than most people realize.

    Interesting infographic about radiation exposure.

    The last image is especially interesting, 150 mSv: Annaul dose at which the probability of cancer dramatically increases

    • Thats a shill site, so everything must be taken with a salt mine of salt.

      The actual point where you have increase your risk of cancer in one year is 11 mSv, not 150.

      http://nukeprofessional.blogspot.com/2012/04/geiger-counter-interpretation.html

      • socref

        The 11 mSv isnt validated stock. Are you sure you are not just promoting your site? I think 100 mSv is a good number from the Atomic Bomb survivor studies and the cohorts from the Cold War. Go ahead call me a shill. I am just stating the facts.

        • Mack Mack

          Here are some facts for you:

          Detrimental health effects have been seen in Radiation exposures much lower than 150mSv, as shown in this National Academy of Sciences Abstract: http://www.pnas.org/content/100/24/13761.long

          (1) Studies show increases in leukemia in children under 5 years of age who got 1.5 mSv to bone marrow.

          (2) A dose of 10 mSv to the embryo and fetus causes "a significant and quantifiable increase in the risk of childhood cancer."

          (3) A Canadian study found a "statistically significant excess cancer incidence and mortality risks for solid cancers” at an average dose of 6.5 mSv

          (4) An average dose of 34 mSv shows a significant "increase in solid-cancer-related mortality."

          (5) “a significant excess risk for acute leukemia was seen in individuals who died at younger than 20 years of age and who received bone-marrow doses from 6 to 30 mGy

          (6) At 40 to 70 mSv, a statistically significant increase in thyroid cancer risk was found

          • Mack Mack

            And socref, if you're going to reference the atomic bomb survivor study, then you should listen to Dr. Wing's presentation, where he sheds light on the flaws in the atomic bomb survivor study.

            For example:

            * the atomic bomb lifespan study did not begin until after 5 years of the bombing, and many people did not survive to be studied

            * the atomic bomb lifespan studies cancers beginning in 1958 so it OMITS ALL CANCERS that occurred in 13 years of exposure, and lots of cancers occur in less time than that

            * the atomic bomb lifespan study does not include the impacts of utero exposure, and shorter latency cancers such as leukemia and lung cancer

            * the Radiation Effects Research Foundation (RERF) (who did the atomic bomb lifespan study) chose not to include gamma/beta induced radiation and fallout radiation effects to estimate any of the radiation doses

            * the fallout of Nagasaki and Hiroshima were not used in the studies, and this fallout affected people further away

            * missing data is a big problem in the atomic bomb lifespan study

            * people who visited Nagasaki and Hiroshima after blasts were not included in the atomic bomb lifespan study

            * distal survivors were not studied in the atomic bomb lifespan study

            * in the 1950's there were higher rates of mortality among survivors with unknown doses, they were taken out of the study

            * high mortality individuals were removed from the study which affects the study

          • Mack Mack

            correction:

            Detrimental health effects have been seen in Radiation exposures much lower than *****100mSv******, as shown in this National Academy of Sciences Abstract: http://www.pnas.org/content/100/24/13761.long

          • socref

            Those are all acute doses, not chronic doses over time. Probably the children that are showing adverse radiation effects were given CT scans (2 mSv). This is why medical procedures are very much the root cause of radiation illnesses.

            • -1

              IMO – Comparisons of atomic bomb studies have very little meaning now when it comes to Fukushima's not-stop TRIPLE MELTDOWNS and relentless onslaught of radioactive Fallout for over 1000 days, almost 3 years.

              This is no comparison!

              …and it's not just cancers in humans.

              What are other animals minimum levels?
              What about DNA damage?
              What amount may cause birth defects?
              What amount weakens an immune system?
              What about the affect to all life forms and ecosystems that will in turn affect us?

      • jcfougere jcfougere

        Thanks Stock, i wasn't sure if this was accurate or not. Given that no radiation dose is acceptable, it's nice to know what will cause an increase in cancer as far as measurable doses go.

  • Paulie777

    One has to understand a radioactive particle is in a wave state until picked up by a geiger counter, and then the particle is only a representation of the probability that the particle contains a certain amount of radiation. However, this particle has a 100 percent probability is is in the space between the atmosphere of the earth and the earth, due to gravitational forces. That makes the gieger counter the measurement item itself in many places at once including space itself outside the earth. So essentially this radiation is running an interference pattern on whoever or whatever is watching us, whatever that is. When our signal gets lost, we cease to exist to them whoever they are and that means we cease to exist. Thats how radiation will kill us all, on the quantum level and levels we don't understand.

    Hi everyone from Enenews, I am very grateful to be able to bring you this information. I have THE SOLUTION for you. I have found a new way to PURGE HEAVY METALS LIKE URANIUM from the body and PROTECT our kids – I myself have a 4 year old and this gave me such hope and joy to discover. Check this out… There is a product called "ZEOLITE". It is an ingestible heavy metal detox and pH balancer. It has NO SIDE EFFECTS and it works. This powder will clean the toxic metals from your body. Please, for yourself, get it if you want to survive this.

    get ZEOLITE PURE or ZEOLITE-AV

    it also destroys VIRUS's ability to infect you (video)

    http://youtu.be/nfc46NpJ4Y8

    Created when volcanic lava meets seawater, "Zeolite" has a hollow soccer-ball shape with a negative charge. It attracts the positively charged toxic heavy metals, trapping them inside. The body cant process it so it is expelled and therefore transports the metals out.
    It is the answer to purging your body from Uranium and all other toxic metals. I have to share this so I could save all of our lives. I decided to distribute this now, and so if you click my link above ( http://regalsupplements.com?AFFID=146483 ) that's all I request back for bringing you this amazing product. I'm confident it will save you from this mess we are in…

    • Salesmen not welcome, I sell too, but not like you.

      Back in the 80’s I use to raise and show Arabian horses, I used a food (actually pet) grade natural zeolite product called Sweet PDZ.

      http://www.sweetpdz.com/

      It's available for about $15 for a 40lb bag from your local feed store. Great for absorbing ammonia odors. Also good for removing heavy metals from contaminated soils and solutions. When they got sick I’d mix some in with their sweet feed to help clear things out. Seemed to work. Historically it’s mostly used on an industrial basis.

      Unfortunately those positively charged hollow shaped soccer balls are preloaded in nature with an assortment of negatively charged heavy metal toxins that can end up being ejected out during a cation exchange and end up in your bloodstream. The artificial or clean zeolites have defective "soccer balls" and don't seem to work well due to high heat warping or can't seem to hold a charge. Either way the products for sale for human consumption seem very diluted and overpriced.

      • American Phoenix57

        cont'd. . .For best results stick proven ingredients like Alpha-lipoic acid, Curcumin, Quercetin, Hesperidin, Milk Thistle Seed Extract, N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC), Beta 1,3 Glucan, Broccoli Sprout Powder, Chlorella (Taiwan cracked cell wall pyrenoidosa), Cilantro Herb, Apple Pectin (L Malic Acid), Grape Seed Extract, Sodium Bicarbonate, Calcium Gluconate, Magnesium Glycinate, Zinc Gluconate, Methysulfonylmethane (organic sulfur), Boron AAC, and Iodine from Potassium Iodide.

        In addition boosting your immune system with a quality probiotic will go a long way in removing and protecting you against environmental toxins.

        http://probiotics.mercola.com/probiotics.html

        If you do decide to take natural zeolite (clinoptilolite or chabazite) just make sure you don’t have any Silver/Mercury amalgam fillings in your mouth or in your diet (HFCS)high fructose corn syrup, fish etc,. Zeolites are Hydrated aluminosilicates and can be very toxic when in contact with mercury. "A small dose of mercury that kills 1 in 100 rats and a dose of aluminum that will kill 1 in 100 rats, when combined have a striking effect: all the rats die. Doses of mercury that have a 1 percent mortality will have a 100 percent mortality rate if some aluminum is there. Vaccines contain aluminum." – Dr. Donald W. Miller, Jr., Mercury on the Mind.

        Hope this helps clear things up.

          I do have those amalgams. I took zeolite for 3 days. I did feel really odd. Thanks for the info. I did not find that info on the net, though I searched for side effects and contraindictions.

          Do you have a link for that or how did you find it, source?

    Hey Mr. Media Man. Here is a view for you. Who says radiation is invisible? Clearly seen inside this failed reactor building. The same crap that the world is breathing in as you read this. Take a coke bottle and smash it on the ground into a million tiny peices. Now sweep that up and throw it into the ocean. Now if you can recover all the missing peices and reassemble them into a perfect bottle equal to before you smashed it, you might have a chance a fixing fukushima. Impossible means Impossible.

          that avatar is a winner, Sparky. Dude, you've got to come up with something for yourself. Your feet are well planted on the site, so I'd say it's time you ran-up a flag!

          BTW. Finished the final wiring on the system I mention a few days back. It's fully functional and it's now a matter of running parametric tests…

            Hi AS, Ah yes, the avatar…! I'm generally a very private person and especially cautious on the 'net–but hey, that all changed w/Enenews and this roudy bunch of 'newsers. 🙂 OK, maybe reserved exclusively for Enenews/newsers. I'll think about (not overthink) about posting one soon. I'm not one for "accessorizing" but I may make an exception–especially since you asked.

            And KUDOS to you for reaching this milestone in your project! Yeah! You'll have to post some pics on the off-topic section. There's some very bright Enenewsers that could brainstorm on your "business plan" if useful, but I get the impression that you've already got that well on its way. Very cool!!

              @Sparky: you're correct about not using anything that can be traced across the net. I don't use my handle or avatar elsewhere.

              As to my project, thanks for salute. It's really exciting building something that doesn't exist elsewhere in the known universe. A friend who stopped by today, also inquired as to whether I was planning to market the system. You may recall, it's far too expensive for most consumers, who really only need a simple backup generator for emergencies. This monster's designed for those who have a need to keep a low profile. One of the things I noticed during a prolonged emergency power outage that lasted for several weeks (months for others), was the reported thefts of gas-powered generators from peoples homes. I also noticed that after a week, people where scrambling for gasoline to fuel the generators. Then there was the incessant drone of the five-kilowatt units, long into the night. Finally, you'd hear them go silent, knowing they too were back in the stone ages. What I'm doing is all about maintaining a low profile (not attracting attention) during conditions of extreme duress, while have the means to operate essential communications gear. It's a cake kind of thing…

      Good catch there Markww. Did you notice this one

      #5 According to Tepco, a total of somewhere between 20 trillion and 40 trillion becquerels of radioactive tritium have gotten into the Pacific Ocean since the Fukushima disaster first began.

      Did you know that tritium is radioactive isotope of hydrogen. H2O The building block of water. Unless they can figure a way to filter water from the water, it's adios amigo..

  • earthsmith earthsmith

    Hello admin and enenewsers..thank you so much! as I researched and connected dots for truths long ago. I knew it was a game changer when I saw the non hydrogen explosion. Especially considering the state of the country at the time. Yet not a peep. I was nervous. Found this site about a year later and have been lurking and talking ever since. I was 9 at the time of TMI. I grew up on Long Island…the Shoreham nuclear power plant scared the hell out of me…I went to one of the protest, there were many, the movement was quite strong against it. ThanKfully that " Bringing death to life" BWR never went on line..to the tune of $6billion in taxpayer money. Cheap electric eh. Finally…fences are a funny thing: they work both ways.

    • Sparky Sparky

      Hi Earthsmith, Welcome! I lived in Upstate New York at the time TMI blew and remember the chaos of family and friends trying to decide whether or not to flee. We stayed, but stayed indoors (at least for a while). I remember that accurate information was really hard to come by. Fast forward a few decades and…not much has changed! 🙁 Well, actually, obviously a lot has changed and much of it for the worse–especially as nuclear goes.

      Nice to know that your activism helped to stop BWR from going on-line. We need more of that! Now I live within 2 hrs. of Fresno, CA. I recenty learned that there was a development group (including local government!) that planned to build a new, "effecient", "climate-friendly" NPP in Fresno. It may have died on the drawing board once Fuku hit. I'll post more on this as I research it further.

      'Glad to hear from you. Keep on posting! 🙂

          Indeed. Thanks Sparky, DID. Secrets are creepy on any level, creepy people lust money, money controls all levels. The cycles are insidious. Simple minds task themselves to be more brilliant than the universe itself? It must be a plague, for surely it is the end. May the last shreds of peace and harmony of this magnificent sphere find a place with you all.

      Kudos to you, anyone smart enough to recognize the R3 detonation as a vertical thrust nuclear blast gets a cookie, and a gold star. People were so blasted cynical about that event. ELE was the first thing I thought when I first saw the video.

  • Grampybone Grampybone

    The plunderer's feast goes long into the night as no amount of dollars thrown about can save them now. Nuclear education is unknown to the herds of eager flesh waiting for the atomic oven to heat up as they swim about in a dying ocean. Blinded by a weakened sense of purpose, the last throws of a collapsing Japanese government will not stay it's iron fist against the citizens. Contamination is beyond the scope of recovery at the plant. Work is a death sentence for the nations impoverished and downtrodden. A sick cult of Yakuza, Government and NRC are fueling the fires for the first ever 3 core global extermination project.

    Two years ago the first Bluefin Tuna of the year went for over 700,00 dollars for the whole fish. Last year the price was over 1.7 million for the whole fish. Guess what the price was this year? 70,000 dollars! Yes, seventy thousand dollars! Something is up here, the year 2014 might not be a good one.

        This comment is interesting. I admit I have never thought about if the radiation would sink instead of be carried in currents. I assumed it would be carried in currents, at least somewhat.

        There seems to be some concern about the Fukushima incident.
        As tragic as it was, many people writing words of protest I feel are misleading the readers.
        I respect their feelings and opinions, but the fact is, there have been other blasts in the Pacific that contaminated the oceans, most were more profound than Fukushima yet were almost immeasurable.
        Nuclear particles do exist, and fortunately U238-U235 are very heavy – they have a density of about .73 pound per cubic inch. Lead, is about .45. What's it mean? The particles tend to settle on the bottom of the ocean, and in sandy or silt bottoms they work themselves down further to the point of harmlessness.

        Radiation in water would need to have a carrier that is approximately the same as water.
        Again, I appreciate their concerns, but Fukushima is far more of a localized problem than a spreading phenomena. We have more realistic problems to better focus our attentions on.

        • harengus_acidophilus

          Decepting the laymen?

          "U238-U235 are very heavy – they have a density of
          about .73 pound per cubic inch. Lead, is about .45."

          It would be useful if you use civilized units.
          There are ~200 country on earth, but just a handful
          are so stubborn, they continue using an illogical
          system of legacy units.
          "Twelve inch in a foot, three feet in a yard
          – that drives you nuts!" (Walter Lewin, MIT)

          "What's it mean? The particles tend to settle
          on the bottom of the ocean, …"

          This is not true!

          It depends not only on the density, the size
          of the particles play an important role.
          In case of very tiny particles, the brownian motion
          outranks the gravitational force.

          "… and in sandy or silt bottoms they work themselves down further to the point of harmlessness."

          I see, we just have to wait some millon years …

    One more comment then I'm done. San Francisco trending way up but still too early to tell if its definitively outside radiation source. If you are in San Fran., I would keep an eye out.

  • isogoodhumans

    Look what happened to scientists who tried to help after Chernobyl:

    Vassili Nesterenko (1934-2008), physician from Belarus & former director of the Institute of Nuclear Energy at the National Academy of Sciences (Belarus), co-authored a report documenting Chernobyl's health impacts "Chernobyl Deaths Top a Million Based on Real Evidence". From 1990 he was director of the Belarusian Institute of Radiation Safety (BELRAD), formed in 1989 with Soviet physicist, dissident, & human rights activist Andrei Sakharov (Nobel Peace Award, 1975), Belarusian writer & critic, Ales Adamovich, & Russian chess grandmaster & former world champion Anatoly Karpov. BELRAD's mission was to document & study the consequences of the Chernobyl disaster.

    1.Because of his work on Chernobyl, Nesterenko lost his job & was threatened internment in a psychiatric asylum. He escaped 2 attempts on his life.

    2.Yuri Bandazhevsky, scientist & former director of the Medical Institute in Gomel (Belarus) also pursued understanding & mitigating Chernobyl's health consequences. He created the Gomel Medical Institute, becoming director in 1990. But in June 2001, Bandazhevsky was sentenced to 8 years imprisonment, with the Deputy Director. The imprisonment was widely believed to be due to his work on the consequences of Chernobyl, as his arrest came soon after he published reports critical of official research conducted on the Chernobyl incident.

    Hello,
    As I have said, a nuclear reactor cannot become "supercritical".
    The pressures required cannot be created 'by accident'.
    Critical meltdown yes, supercritical detonation no.
    Yet unit 3 clearly suffered a supersonic vertical detonation.
    Lack of a neutron signature shows it wasnt a nuclear explosion.
    How is this possible???
    Its called a bomb people, an implanted explosive device.
    "Rule out the impossible, what remains, however improbable, must be the truth."

    Would an H2 explosion create enough pressure?

    No. Not even close.
    Plus no neutron signature.
    Still, it blew up.. way up..
