Hidden Fukushima nuclear waste being released into ocean — ‘Surprisingly’ high levels of radiation now detected along Pacific coast and in groundwater far from reactors — Expert: No one expected this — “Alarming example of how radiation has spread”

Newsweek, Oct 4, 2017 (emphasis added): Radiation From Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Discovered in Sand and Groundwater 60 Miles Away… the beach groundwater is even 10 times more radioactive than the ocean directly next to the Fukushima plant.

Gizmodo, Oct 4, 2017: Fukushima’s Radioactive Waste Is Leaking From an Unexpected Source — A new and unexpected source of radioactive material left over from the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster has been found up to 60 miles away along coastlines… The discovery shows that damaged nuclear reactors are capable of spreading radiation far from the meltdown site, and in some surprising ways.

UPI, Oct 3, 2017: Beaches found releasing radioactive cesium into ocean 60 miles from Fukushima… Scientists have discovered a surprising new source of radioactive cesium… [Researchers] found unusually high levels of radioactive cesium-137 in the groundwater beneath several beaches… “No one expected that the highest levels of cesium in ocean water today would be found not in the harbor of the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant, but in the groundwater many miles away below the beach sands,” WHO researcher Virginie Sanial said…

Fox News, Oct 3, 2017: Fukushima’s radioactive cesium found an unexpected hiding spot… The find wasn’t just a surprise, but significant. As the researchers write, “Aside from the aquifer beneath [the plant], the highest recorded present-day activities of [cesium-137] in the aqueous environment in Japan are associated with brackish groundwater underneath beaches.”

IFL Science, Oct 2, 2017: Scientists investigating the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan have found an unexpected source of radioactive material… [It’s] an alarming example of how radiation from the reactor has spread… “It is as if the sands acted as a ‘sponge’ that was contaminated in 2011 and is only slowly being depleted,” said study co-author Ken Buesseler…

Study – Unexpected source of Fukushima-derived radiocesium to the coastal ocean of Japan, Sep 26, 2017: [T]he highest radiocesium (137Cs) activities outside of the power plant site were observed in brackish groundwater underneath sand beaches… During our study period, we found the highest cesium-137 (137Cs) levels (up to 23,000 Bq⋅m−3) outside of the FDNPP site not in the ocean, rivers, or potable groundwater, but in groundwater beneath sand beaches over tens of kilometers away from the FDNPP. Here, we present evidence of a previously unknown, ongoing source of Fukushima-derived 137Cs to the coastal ocean… This estimated ocean 137Cs source (0.6 TBq⋅y−1) is of similar magnitude as the ongoing releases of 137Cs from the FDNPP site for 2013–2016, as well as the input of Fukushima-derived dissolved 137Cs via rivers… This unexpected and ongoing 137Cs source requires further investigation…

    Fukushima Nuclear Accident Recorded in Tibetan Plateau Snow Pits

    Fallout monitoring studies demonstrate that this radioactive material was transported by the westerlies across the middle latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere. The depth of the peak β radioactivity in each snow pit compared with observational precipitation records, suggests that the radioactive fallout reached the Tibetan Plateau and was deposited on glacier surfaces in late March 2011, or approximately 20 days after the nuclear accident. The radioactive fallout existed in the atmosphere over the Tibetan Plateau for about one month.

    wow, 137Cs levels up to 23,000 Bq⋅m−3. Thats almost twice the background radiation.

    Buesseler is on the project. He knows from his work in the black sea that sediment can contain 1000x as much radiation as in the open water.

        heres a question; is ONE atom of cesium137 per cell a concern? Can it do anything at all to speak of? Pretty sure it isnt radiating until it decays and then its a quick trip or two to barium stability. One atom.

        According to an estimate made by engineers at Washington University, there are around 100,000,000,000,000 or 100 trillion atoms in a human cell. Could ONE atom of cesium do anything to disrupt 100 trillion atoms?

        Its a key question, and one must know the answer to successfully argue against Woods Hole's continued statement that Fukushima radiation is of no concern.

          oh well –
          …the amount of energy absorbed by a mass of cells is not what determines biological effect.

          What matters is the spacial concentration of ionizing events in relation to cellular molecular components hit.

          Internal emitters are densely ionizing.

          You know what this also means?

          The ICRP model is a FAILED model in relation to describing the effects of internally ingested LLR.

          The model has been myopically designed not to recognise the effects of low level radiological exposure, and only cancer and directly observable birth defects of living newborns, despite the a plethora of other illnesses may result from organic molecular damage.

          The evidence of numerous studies bears this out.

            or-well steps to the plate! Good job too

            I ask about one atom for a reason. Is one atom densely ionizing? I mean forget about low and high energy tracks…just the radiation from one atom. I would say no, its not a high density radiation source…its not doing much of anything until it cant take the unstable thoughts and then it goes to barium then stable, 90% of the time. One atom is not a constant source of becquerels

            If my little stab at it was correct, we are at a biologically significant dose of Cs137 with an average of one atom per cell. A near fatal dose is about 130 atoms per cell (whole body average). Compare to K-40; we have about six million radioactive potassium atoms (k-40) per cell! (unless I messed up the numbers!)

            This is the foundation that lets Beusseler say there is no harm from the fallout…"our radioactive ocean" is the Woods Hole and NOAA theme to placate the public

            The scientific and legal base is the ICRP dose model. You might guess I have some thoughts about this low dose conundrum

                    I think its key to realize that just adding free radical de activators is not the be all and end all of why herbs and vit c and stuff can combat cancer from low level radiation. Gerson found that the cell voltage had to be high to combat cancer…but later research found that the intercellular communication that relies on the ion channels, the bioelectric fields has a primary role. Cancer isnt a single cell disease. Low level radiation is not a DNA double strand break problem for the most part. Added free radical load has an effect but what it is EXACTLY? It is the cascade of effects, resulting in a breakdown of intercellular communications which ultimately leads to a metasticized cancer.

                    The fact that chitin and other endogenous material have this ion exchange property that bioaccumulates radiation of high specific activity seems like a VERY good line of research.

                    You see, the high specific activity shouldnt come into play if the cesium is evenly distributed at the atomic level (not totally true, but for the point). One atom out of six million. But if the cesium accumulates into hot regions of fungi, or amino acid neurotransmitters, or parasites, then the inter-cellular communication system is disrupted. Kill the parasites, the fungi (not very easy!!), get the heavy metals out, fortify the body with its required nutrition and low level radiation will not have the cancerous effect

                    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                      I should say, one radioactive cesium atom out of six million radioactive potassium atoms in the cell…which has some 37 trillion atoms…how much harm can it do? As it turns out, this has been epidemiologically and even lab tested to have an effect. A very tiny shooter, put one radioactive decay into a cell and a systemic cellular response was observed. Moreover, if you take a cell that has been 'hit' by a track of fallout decay, and just take some of the fluid that the cell was in and transfer it to the fluid bathing other cells, there will be an effect. The other cells, untouched by radiation, may decide to commit suicide, so drastic is the communication note held in that fluid

                      'Overall, several studies challenge the traditional paradigm that the important biological effects of ionizing radiation are due to DNA damage induced as a result of direct interaction of the radiation track with the cell nucleus.

              parasites have been found to be associated with cancer. Allopathy recognizes a few, but outliers like Hulda Clark and Simoncini see parasites or fungi as primary to most cancer. Many of these are chitin based organisms. Cancer is a multicellular breakdown in cell communication. That one atom per cell of cesium takes on a new dimension if it is all bioaccumulated in parasites or fungi. I have been wondering about this for some time…specifically the hot spots of internal cesium. They arent 'supposed' to be there. Chitinous microorganisms present a possible confluence of causation in cancer. Consider that cancer was relatively rare before the nuclear era. Parasites were causing illnesses of all kinds throughout history. Heres the point; the cellular communication, and of particular interest, the bioelectric field may be 'short circuited' by the combined action of fungi, parasites and their bioaccumulated hot spots of radiation

                  About six or so things are required for cancer…but they all relate to the essential health, integrity and communication of the cells. A healthy diet, exercise, a peaceful mind, herbs…these all over-ride, to a large extent, the 'stochastic' nature of low level radiation.

                  Only by seeing radiation and the cell in a new way can science over turn the failed ICRP model and the reality of epidemiology of nuclear accidents become accepted, thereby ending the stronghold of the nuclear industry. As it stand, the failed economics of nuclear is our only hope. Its shameful…

                      stock, I think my points here are good. Chitin, fungus, parasites, rise in cancer since the nuclear age, cell communication, and its disruption through bioelectric ion corruption by bioconcentrated fallout containing parasites. It fits together like a big jigsaw puzzle. It has science behind it. Just think of it this way; they USE these fungi or chitin organisms to sop up radionuclides in the industry because they are so good at it. Moreover, many of them (melanized ones) THRIVE off thatshit and actively seek it out. Now, at the same time we have sound clinical evidence that getting rid of those buggers and restoring the cell to health can cure cancer. The evidence that the two are related is de facto; parasites and fungi have been wreaking havoc since forever, but cancer is on the rise since the nuclear era and Chernobyl showed that low levels kill. Ion exchange is a key factor. Amino acids can act as ion exchange material also. The combination of pathogens, fungi and radiation goes a long way to explain the situation. Autoradiographs show INTERNAL hot spots of cesium….how do they get there? The body does not allow anything bigger than some molecules to pass, not hot particles…I would think Our digestive sieve is very very fine!!

                      chitin containing fungus might be a factor in the evolution of cancer from low level nuclear fallout. Thats just a hypothesis but based on the clinical observation of fungus involvement in cancer, the bioconcentration effect of chitin and the emerging view of cancer as a product of over all poor health, and disruption in the cell communication

                      proper nutrition and healthy lifestyle have been shown to ameliorate nuclear fallout to some extent (chernobyl studies), which is in contrast to the 'random DNA bullet theory' of mainstream dosimetry.

                if cancer was a thing of pure random chance, the one DNA stand that didnt make it and spun out of control, as the science of radiobiology asserts, then your chances of getting cancer would not depend on your over all health, your immune system, diet and exercise. But this is not the case.

                The new science of radiation physics will realize that the cell wall plays an important role, not just the nucleus. Simoncini was right about genetics…they arent 'written in stone', they are expressed depending on extracellular and intracellular communication. The cell wall is key because of the ion channels, the proteins and the extracellular matrix which extend the function of the cell to act in synch with the rest of the body. You are one animal, and so the cells have to act as one. The cell is not a jumble of tinker toys, its a functional unity…a little animal as it were.

                Cancer isnt a genetic disease, its not a singular cell gone wrong, its a problem of cellular communication and cellular health over many cells.

                The banana equivalence 'lie' is actually very complicated. The lie is that all ionizing radiation fits into one category of bodily influence. Simple observation shows this is not correct. A dose of radiation from one type of radionuclide can cause systemic ill health, while a larger dose of radiation from another radionuclide can be benign, even healthy

                      not excess energy/time. Thats the concept Im fighting against. Rather the problem with low level fallout may be the ion concentration/distance. This is the ionic field which has a communications function. Think of it like rubbing a stick with copper dust and laying it across a car battery.

                      radiobiology recognizes two types of pertinent cell communications systems that influence radiation toxicity. 'short range Gap Junctional Intercellular Communication and long range Distant Cell Signaling Intercellular Communication, mediated by soluble transmissible factors and propagated by Brownian active or passive diffusive motion.'
                      In typical biological scientist mind set, they find the tinker toy bits (phosphorylation of connexin43 protein for gap junction signalling, secretions of TGF-β, interleukin-8, serotonin and others), but they miss the energy field effect. Studies show that small modifications of the bioelectric field can produce wild deformations, or promote tissue and limb re-generation and also cure cancer.

                      The essential idea is that the ICRP model with its single DNA strand hit does not fit observed reality. Meanwhile, radiation dose from fallout is very low and scientists cant for the life of them grasp how it could do anything. But the combination of low level radiation that is bioconcentrated at the cell surface, or 'bridging' several cells by say fungal hyphae brings a new plausible theory of low level fallout toxicity

                      So like, unsuitable excess energy, over time but also divided by distance? Vaguely speaking, I mean, we'd have to consider lymphatic/lymphocytic function, energy transfer mechanisms (glutamine/atp/atm, etc), additional supporting "sources", all kinds of shit.

                      Like I still got this theory that "gravity" is an inherent property/function of matter. Like, it doesn't move, so it moves things.

                      And I get this feeling "space" isn't space, but more like a voronoi diagram (but like a gauss field, roughly speaking, I was reminded of SVD or something?), so there's no…empty stuff, it's just that density or energy to mass ratio is variable.

                    Hiroshima to Fukushima: Biohazards of Radiation (Science Policy Reports) 2014th Edition
                    by Eiichiro Ochiai (Author)

                    Written by a brilliant bio-chemist.

                    Gabriel Cousens is good…I havent read Ochiai.

                    What Im suggesting is a new idea; a synergic effect of low level nuke fallout that is bioconcentrated onto internal chitinous organisms or amino acids.

                    For example, Dr Clark and Dr Simoncini see a direct relationship of fungus or parasites and cancer. Simoncini didnt go for the acid pH theory, or other holistic concepts. They both have clinical experience. If you kill the fungus and the cancer goes away, can you blame your dose of Fukushima radiation? Can you use this to debate with Beusseler or condemn the nuclear cartel?

                    You see, cancer is on the rise concurrent with low level fallout. Why are some stricken with cancer from fallout while others are not? Simoncinis fungus or Clarks flukes and tape worms?

                    The challenge is to understand why some radiation is dangerous and other sources, even at higher radiation doses are not. This idea tentatively helps bridge the gap

                    • FaunaLord Farthington MacMananus

                      Considering cancer rates, diets and such, what would you say are some of the most obvious to implicate fungi? Candida albicans, maybe some saccharomyces cerevisae? What else though? Should we look at other fungi in common "foods", or perhaps ones that are often often found in immunocompromised individuals?

                    • FaunaLord Farthington MacMananus

                      Again, I just have this fucking feeling, that it's always look like what is classifiably fungi. I've seen some interesting dual-state (in a biological sense) pathogens.

                      Well, we know that Kombucha or whatever is used in that can't be good. The ACA suggests "it may kill you!" and russian olympic athletes didn't do badly on it.

                      What about cordyceps though? I mean, have you seen those things in the rainforest (what was that movie, about the anti-cancer stuff, which revolved around ants?). So cordyceps kill those anticancer things. Shit. It fucking makes sense.

Certain foods contain malonate (see list of malonate-free foods in The Cure for All Advanced Cancers). The malonic acid content of foods has increased due to agricultural practices such as the use of certain pesticides, time of harvesting and methods of artificial ripening. For instance, organic oranges, carrots and broccoli do not contain malonic acid, whereas the ordinary varieties do. Some foods that contain malonic acid are: alfalfa sprouts, apricots, beans, broccoli, carrots, chocolate, kombu, limes, mangos, nori, onions, oranges, parsnips, tomatoes and wheat grass.

                      CS, here's an even simpler question. Let's do this all scientific-like, life expectancy and k-40 accumulation. Yeah I ain't no fan of cs-137. But this is all conflation, most people these days live longer than they used to, not saying anything about quality of life or anything like, just citing historical evidence.

                      So like, even more k-40, even more cs-137, yet people are living longer. In a stochastic, average means sort of sense. Without citing the very unscientific bible, try and argue that.

                      Farth I dont care for your longer-life-despite-radiation argument. There is evidence ancient Egyptians lived as long or longer than modern humans.

Also, its besides the point Im trying to make.

                    see these six fundamental things required for tumorigenisis


                    Cell communications is at the base of all of them. It invalidates the ICRP idea that radiation results in a certain mathematical probability for a cell to mutate to cancer.

                    Lets be clear; nobody knows for sure why low level nuclear fallout causes cancer. Cancer is still the big mystery for science. A new paradigm is emerging; it involves the cell surface and communication factors, ROS as well as cytoplasm and nucleus. Im adding the clinical observations of people like Simoncini and the fungal connection

                    This is how we are trying to grasp the fundamental difference in toxicity of different radioisotopes, which are so far off those given by scientific extrapolation from the Hiroshima bomb survivors

                    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                      Heres a real fundamental question;

                      The question is this; How dangerous is that fallout along the beach compared to the background radiation?

                      Woods Hole says that nuke fallout at 20,000 bq/m3 is no concern. They say its approximately twice as dangerous as background which isnt hardly dangerous.

                      Now its obvious you must know two things;
                      A) how toxic the fallout is and
                      B) how toxic the background is

                      Most people dont realize they dont know either one. No study can be found for cesium 137 or K-40 toxicity on humans. They extrapolate and guess, based on some bomb victims, a few accidents and some gruesome dog injections

                    • FaunaLord Farthington MacMananus

                      Excuse me, doing some inverse dynamics, in a way. I clap my hands when I hear extrapolation, I mean unless you use it as a method to suggest implicit constraint to improve your solver or integrator, your shit be blowin up. I don't know many things, but I what symplectic means.

                    • FaunaLord Farthington MacMananus

                      Think about this CS, try an integral. Yeah yeah, I'm just making shit up.

                      So let's say you take all existing organisms, well okay, you can't do that. But let's say you consider the total mass/k-40 ratio vs life expectancy, let's say you then compare this in modern times (no, no remember, there's an awful lot of predetermined death in industry, so that's not exactly worth consideration).

                      As a pro-nuker I would say that cs-137 correlates quite well with increased human life expectancy, further, I would suggest k-40 is quite necessary for death.

                      What was the conversion to an amount of bananas?

                      Ingestion of analogous radioactive potassium has less potential damaging effects when ingested compared to inhalation with the caveat than underage kids will absorb and use manmade analogous radioactive elements as building blocks. A growing heart incorporates radiocesium where an adult heart has less risk of incorporation.

                      The IAEA bag of water model does nothing to account for parts of a body being magnets for certain radioactive elements or at least those radioactive elements come to reside in certain storage areas of a body. Human and animal alike.

                      Kenny boy is sloughing off again not doing a full radiological workup for all radioactive elements present in samples. Cs are just easier to detect. And how to determine background from newly created manmade radioelements without confusing the two.

                      Thousands of time less than initially released is not very reassuring when at the onset of the meltdowns, readings were millions maybe billions of times above background levels.

                      How C-134 arrived or is arriving at that sampled area is entirely open to discussion.

                      the beach is a sand filter for runoff. The land is contaminated and each rain, or disturbance allows gravity to bring the stuff to the ocean.

                      ICRP does give different dose coefficients for some different organs…the tissue weighting factors. The two things that I see amiss is that they dont seem to look into the microscopic domain i.e. bioaccumulation in very small areas, and two, they dont know how toxic it is. They still use the extrapolation from Hiroshima, which threw out the disease data that they said couldnt be caused by radiation. The use high level radiation experiments on dogs, but the sensitivity to morbidity, disease promotion, quality of life and chronic effects are missing. They simply start with the belief that radiation damage is an all or nothing random chance thing which blinds them to the clinical presentations.

                      But we have Bandazhevsky and all the others who did exhaustive epidemiology from Chernobyl. Most of the papers you will not find…a different language, different publishing channels, or not available. But Bandazhevsky and Yablokov stand, and the data shows ill health at 25 bq/kg and above.

                      Science…people…have to grasp that there are fundamental differences and not all ionizing radiation can be lumped into one concept of biological impact.

                      Oxygen gives a clue…it is toxic for some of the same reasons as ionizing radiation; it destroys cells and DNA with ion radicals. It is involved in a large array of cellular…

                    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                      Oxygen harms, yet no one calls the oxygen in air poison. You could have a different mix of air gasses, theoretically, which could still provide oxygenation, yet no substitute for air is going to be as good as pure natural alive air, and it may readily be deadly.

                      So with radioactive potassium, you can increase it 100 x and still there is no mutation. 1000x and there is a slight uptick. Imagine if you increased the concentration of any other biological element 100x. Say oxygen..or take your pick. I call that robustly non toxic (K-40). The same cant be said for other ionizing radiation sources…cesium 137 appears to be toxic even at a dose of one atom in a cell of 40 trillion atoms. (pending a re check of math!).

                      Once and for all, people need to stop with the preconceived idea of low level ionizing radiation damage. I know….its not easy

                      Beusseler and crew would say the radioactivity in that beach sand water is twice or three times as bad as open ocean radiation and less damaging than your natural internal radiation…but in fact it may be thousands of times, or even infinitely more harmful…if we assume the natural bio chemical state is the ideal.

                  • FaunaLord Farthington MacMananus

                    Do you know what the ratio of cs-137 to k-40 was, say, 178234781 years ago? So like, I don't fucking know. You don't either.

                    • FaunaLord Farthington MacMananus

                      Yeah that was meant as a reply to CS in the other thread, sorry about that.

                    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                      the ratio of Cs-137 to K-40 200 million years ago is more or less known. There was hardly any Cs137 but there was a slightly higher level of K-40. But thats not the question…we want to know the ratio of toxicity per becquerel. We want the nuke industry to know it, the scientists to know it

                      I have a tentative ballpark figure;

                      Codes new potassium40 dose coefficient;

                      K-40 = 0.013 nSv/Bq.
                      Cs-137= 65 nSv/Bq

                      thus the ratio of toxicity per becquerel of Cs137 to K40 is about 5000

                      that is in contrast to Woods et al who say the ratio is closer to 1 and thus the stamp of safety to the deadly Fukushima disaster

                    • FaunaLord Farthington MacMananus

                      More or less known, 200 million years ago, yeah okay, according to who and what? There was more k-40, but humans died quicker?

                      Come on dude, you're gonna have to do better than that. I'm not a clever man, but you can probably figure that out.

                      what is the value of knowing primordial radioactivity? For one thing, it gives a hint at how toxic or perhaps even useful background radiation might be to life.

                      Regarding Cs137, since there were no constant generators of it, and it has a relatively short life, we can assume the level in pre history was close to zero.

                      I estimate the level of K-40 radioactivity in proto cells at the beginning of life contained 1.25 million becquerels per cubic meter

                      Farth are you a bot handled by jerks as suggested by others? Why rag on me? You see a problem? Why not rag on Hippie Dog?

                      protocells had the same requirement for potassium as now. This paper describes why; http://www.pnas.org/content/109/14/E821.full
                      So lets assume the protocell had the same potassium proportion as current cells. I calculate the amount in current cells this way;
                      98% of your potassium is shuttled into your intracellular fluid. This volume normally contains 27 litre out of the total 42 litre of water in a 70-kg person.
                      So if a person has 5000 bq of k-40, 4900 bq exist in 27 kg of water. Thats 180 bq per kg. multiply 180 bq/kg by 1000 to arrive at the bq/cubic meter. Amount of radioactivity in our cells and protocells= 180,000 bq/m^3. But k-40 has a half life of 1,251,000,000 years. Using a half life calculator like this http://www.1728.org/halflife.htm gives 1.25 million becquerels per cubic meter. This is the assumed radioactivity from potassium alone in the primordial soup and cells at the beginning of life

                      Thanks CS, K-40 is incorporated into cellular communication where CS-137 disrupts cellular communication; thus a 5000 to 1 toxicity of Cesium to Potassium. Additionally, micro-organisms are concentrating the amount of CS-137 we take internally to get close enough to disrupt cellular communications.

                    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                      I get the same answer as before, about 1.25 million becquerels/m3 from potassium in primordial life 3.5 billion years ago. Is that a toxic dose which causes genomic instability?

                      "Seriously though, empirically, can you actually argue that cs-137 vs k-40 thing? Or even that with 50% cancer rates people have longer life expectancy?"

                      hey dont take you hatred out here, isnt that antithetical to your ethic? Anyway you will just get hate back, if you need that kind of cycle

                      I would say on the one hand you are right, there may be no relevant comparison of k40 to cs137 insofar as a biologically normal dose has no harm. But one CAN make a comparison based on higher levels and extrapolate down. Of course, the whole science world is always making the comparison and that is why I try to improve the accuracy of their guesses. Why? because they win all debates based on this ICRP dose model and meanwhile the ocean is going belly up. With your brain, you could contribute, rather than wallpapering my notes to oblivion.

                    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                      Horse! a welcome relief. You stated the summary well. A key thing is that cancer is not a single cell going cancerous as implicit in the ICRP model. Its a multi-cellular event from the beginning. The six fundamental aspects, like unending cell division, growing support vessels etc are all related to problems in cell signaling. This is a current paradigm anyway.

                      The 500 to 1 ratio of toxicity is not to be taken as robust science. Go here to find that whether you take out all the radiation from potassium, or increase it by 100X, there is no change in mutation rate.
                      Even enriching potassium radiation 1000x showed no appreciable mutation.

                      So we take the 100x figure and see what dose this is. And this appears to be about 7000 bq/kg = a non mutating dose of K-40.

                      To get an idea, there is now 12,000 bq/M3 in the ocean from potassium and the above non mutating activity translates to 7 million bq/m3. So a safe, (essential zero mutation rate) internal amount of radiation from k-40 is 580x the k-40 activity found in the ocean. Its also 700,000x higher than the amount of Cs137 activity (becquerels) in there from fukushima (about 10 bq/M3).

                      The Cs-137 coefficient was taken from Busby et al.

                      So this does not say how bad the cesium is, and for that I was looking at the bioconcentration and other effects, including frequency and harmonics

                      sorry, I should have said the dose coefficient for cesium tells how bad but does not explain the wide spread death events. I think the secondary effects..like impacts on the food chain, infectious co factors, and unknown effects related to the bystander effect help explain it. Mainstream science does not acknowledge any of that, regarding Fukushima

                      Yes, agree Code, disrupting cellular communications can do far more damage than a damaged cell or two. The ICRP model was argued by the ECRR with evidence and still the nukers cling to the flawed model. I have thought that the ECRR didn't go far enough and you postulate a good mechanism for even greater concern. Keep up the great work Code and I'll try to keep up.

                      Cesium-137: A Deadly Hazard – Stanford University

                      "Mar 20, 2012 – Despite its prevalence in spent nuclear fuel and nuclear waste, cesium-137 is actually extremely rare. Its half-life is too short for it to persist from natural fission sources, and on earth it is a synthetic isotope only."

                      Potassium-40 = 0.0000071 Curies per gram = 71 ten-millionths Curies per gram

                      Cesium-137 = 88 Curies per gram


                      So the dose coefficient between K-40 and Cs-137 is 10,000,000 not 5,000.

                      In addition, Cs-137 is a much larger molecule and concentrates because it can't move in and out of the body as K-40 does and is not even distributed through every cell in the body as K-40 is.

                      So the lethality of Cs-137 is much greater than 10,000,000 times that of K-40.

                      “Sometimes these man-made radionuclides are compared to naturally occurring radionuclides, such as Potassium-40, which is always found in bananas and other fruits. However this is a false comparison since naturally occurring radioactive elements are very weakly radioactive. In the lab chart the radioactivity is described as the 'specific activity'. Note that Potassium-40 has a specific activity of 71 ten millionths of a Curie per gram. Compare that to the 88 Curies per gram for Cesium-137. This is like comparing a stick of dynamite to an atomic bomb….

                      ” 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….”

                    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                      Stephen Starr and Busby articles are good. Starr fails to explain the banana equivalent dose conundrum. If Cs is 10 million times more radioactive than K, but you have just one millionth the amount of it, is the radiation damage equivalent? In the end, we are unable to determine the danger in the 23,000 bq/m3 water given in the ENE headline, and even less able to compare it properly to the background ocean radiation. I wouldnt have continued to investigate the issue if it were settled.

                      Busby gives a good historical account but for my taste he fails on a few points;

                      biological effects of radiation are due solely to DNA damage

                      all kinds of external radiation will have pretty much the same biological effect

                      radiation to tissue other than DNA has no effect

                      I suspect that in his attempts to explain what is not yet known, he got a little too focused on his photoelectron theory. Note this carries over to his list of dangerous radionuclides…cesium isnt listed!

                      But the paper has a purpose, i.e. to change policy, and foregoing a deeper discussion of radiation cause and effect is understandably justified

                      the question remains regarding the Woods Hole comparison conundrum; how many becquerels of radiation from potassium is equal in damage to 1000 bq from Cs137? Nobody wants to answer it except me for some reason

                    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                      the fact that measured radiation does not indicate danger is given by Busby here;


                      'in these low-dose circumstances, the error in the ICRP risk model is truly enormous. …the error factor becomes 1 million.

                      Such a level of error in the current model would accommodate all the evidence of child leukemia near nuclear sites. … no one can believe that the error can be so great so they ignore it.'

                      this should throw some doubt on the value of radiation measurement, shouldnt it?

                      One thing meat glue does is cause blood clot problems. I noticed more people that had thrombosis since low level nuke fallout. This meat glue is called transglutaminase.

                      A 2007 analysis by World Cancer Research Fund International found that eating just one sausage a day can significantly raise your risk of bowel cancer. Specifically, 1.8 ounces of processed meat daily — about one sausage or three pieces of bacon — raises the likelihood of the cancer by 20 percent.

                      Other studies have also found that processed meats increase your risk of:

                      Colon cancer by 50 percent
                      Bladder cancer by 59 percent
                      Stomach cancer by 38 percent
                      Pancreatic cancer by 67 percent

                      anyway, people have been eating sausage for a damn long time, but the incidence of cancer has only skyrocketed coincident to the nuclear industry. Could the bioaccumulating effect of chitinous fungal hyphae have a part to play in this?

                      glycolysis is frequently linked to cancer cell metabolism, our findings further suggest a role of cytoplasmic damage in promoting neoplastic changes.

                      Aberrant glucose metabolism characterized by high levels of glycolysis, even in the presence of oxygen, is an important hallmark of cancer. This metabolic reprogramming referred to as the Warburg effect is essential to the survival of tumor cells and provides them with substrates required for biomass generation. Molecular mechanisms responsible for this shift in glucose metabolism remain elusive. As described herein, we found that aberrant expression of the proinflammatory protein transglutaminase 2 (TG2) is an important regulator of the Warburg effect in mammary epithelial cells.

                      Our results suggest that aberrant expression of TG2 is a master regulator of metabolic reprogramming and facilitates metabolic alterations in epithelial cells even under normoxic conditions. A TG2-induced shift in glucose metabolism helps breast cancer cells to survive under stressful conditions and promotes their metastatic competence.

                      This goes to highlight the difference between nuke fallout, with its high specific activity, and potassium, which, even though it dominates your radiation exposure, does not cause transglutaminase expression, glycolysis metabolic changes or genomic instability. This helps to destroy the Woods Hole claim that Fukushima fallout is a totally insignificant radiation exposure concern compared to potassium.

    July 16 03:26 pm JST


    A beach in Iwaki, Fukushima Prefecture, which was long regarded as the most popular swimming spot in the prefecture, has reopened to the public for the first time since the March 11, 2011 disaster.

    After an opening ceremony was held at Usuiso beach on Saturday morning, about 100 high school students and girls dressed in hula costumes rushed into the sea, Sankei Shimbun reported. By late Saturday afternoon, around 1,800 people had visited the beach, officials said.

    The beach has been closed since the tsunami caused a meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. The tsunami also took the lives of 120 residents of Iwaki.

    Prefectural health officials say radiation levels in the area have dropped to where they were before the nuclear accident.

    An Iwaki government official told local media that it was wonderful to see smiling faces and people having fun at the beach again after seven years (the beach closed after the summer season ended in 2010).

      IWAKI, Fukushima Prefecture–Usuiso beach, once regarded as one of the 100 most beautiful seashores in Japan, welcomed its first holidaymakers in seven years July 15.

      Another concern was the level of radiation on the beach and in local waters. Residents have received assurances that levels have returned to what they were before the accident.

      Those efforts led to the reopening of the Usuiso beach this year. The beach will be open until Aug. 15.

      After the beach was officially declared open, more than 100 senior high school students ran screaming with joy for a plunge in the ocean.

    Fukushima after six years and half: the forgotten victims https://nuclear-news.net/2017/10/05/fukushima-after-six-years-and-half-the-forgotten-victims/

    [ long article, posted the last section here ]

    My main purpose in sharing information about Fukushima, was to draw the attention of the public at large about the plight of the Fukushima nuclear disaster victims, to help as I can make their voices heard, to raise international sympathy and possible support for them.

    6 years and half later, I feel that I have failed. General lack of empathy prevails. As long as we will not learn from the nuclear victims themselves and let their voices be heard, the game of let’s pretend and deny will continue, and we will fail to end nuclear, and more nuclear disasters will continue to occur.

    I have therefore decided to step back, to begin a new chapter in my life.

    Before to turn the page, I would like to give thanks to all those I have been fortunate enough to meet, to work with, to get to know, those who have consistently shown dedication and humility, those of you who have had always the Fukushima people’s welfare at heart.

    Fukushima Operator Given Green Light to Restart Nuclear Reactors

    "On Wednesday, the Nuclear Regulation Authority said TEPCO’s two reactors in northern Japan met new and stricter safety standards. The authority unanimously approved the draft certificate for reactors number 6 and 7 at the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa plant, marking the first step in the process toward restarting them. Portions of the plant’s reactors were damaged in a 2007 earthquake.

    Much of the Japanese public is opposed to granting TEPCO permission to once again operate reactors, and rightfully so. TEPCO was blamed for safety lapses in the Fukushima nuclear plant disaster after a major earthquake in March of 2011, and the tsunami that followed damaged the power supply and cooling system of three reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi plant, resulting in an unprecedented nuclear accident."

    The key words in the headline were, "suprisingly" and "no one expected this".

    We're learning new things about radiation every day thanks to fuku. Next time there's an accident we'll have a lot more understanding of what's to come.

    If you had to argue with some nuclear longhairs about the toxicity of low level exposure, you would have no proof. So you can't fight it from a health standpoint.

    But what about from an economic standpoint?

    Beside the fact that nuclear power is not economical as a power source, it is a major contributor to the economy. From eco-friendly mining to safety-first waste management, nuclear power creates vast wealth in every step of its scientific process.

    Although most of us will never fully comprehend all its complexities, we can feel secure knowing nuclear weapons are a deterrent to nuclear war.

      * tissues of the kidney, heart and liver have an affinity for cesium
      * kidneys had the fastest uptake of C137
      * cesium content of blood and plasma was "always very low"
      * cesium content in blood was lower than in any tissue

          • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

            Mack…I see it differently. Cesium becomes a part of the chain of biological activity. In simple terms, its a note of dysfunction and death. An awake body reads that note.

            The idea behind the usual view of radiation is that little bullets are randomly firing and a few may by chance hit your DNA and that cell might not get fixed quite right, and this will lead to cancer.

            Ive been making pains to describe a different vision. The temperature modification of uptake is not really a big part of the nuclear fallout catastrophe. Seals in Alaska were bleading around the eyes, bald spots…a super sad fate for our seal brothers. Its cold there.

            The vision I have is that a potent radioactive chemical has changed the milieu of the cell. This is not just a random DNA hit modified incidentally by temperature uptake differences. The delay of radiation effect during hybernation hints at the role of toxins in the symphony of the unified biology. For low level radiation, a communications effect is taking place. Its not my theory…it is the finding of the so called bystander effect.

            The body realizes the intrusion of a super toxin. Previously it was though that only the valence shell of atoms determined their chemical effects. Now we know biology can sense radionuclides…it 'knows' if the cesium is Cs or Cs-137. But knowing is not enough…many cells commit suicide over the invader of death. But this does not stop the insult. A general morbidity for every living…

              a systemic, general morbidity for every living thing on earth is the 'gift' of the nuclear industry. This is not an empty, flippant statement. It hints at the deep biological interactions of a bewildering array of biochemical and bioelectric processes. Nuclear fallout is poison. Dont lump it with other sources of ionizing radiation…. or, as Busby pointed out, you may be off by a factor of a million

              "The body realizes the intrusion of a super toxin.", as it does a single toxic.

              You may find this off topic, but for a moment , I ask you to multi-discipline your sense and response to the 'one atom' cellular intruder presence.

              Once upon a time I met a very gifted ( and revered ) concert pianist.
              Having the rare opportunity to ask an individual that 'reproduces' what are centrally; " the epitome of what every interaction is about slice of the cone through the slice of the universe at the human level of experience"

              I asked him how many times he would practice a 'new' song before playing it publicly. His response was: about 900 times ( then a pause ) and he said; "900 times, RIGHT, you have to unlearn al the bad habits you picked up 'practicing' is wrong; then you have to tart practicing it right"

              I ask him to 'centralize' this concept and he said: " I believe that the thought to motion effect gets stronger through practice; I(he) mean I think , at first the concept ( thought) is conceived as an electrical signal in the brain that is only local( an electrical thing) and at first learning , a human sends 'low voltage' bio-mechanical signals through the body based on electro-chemical induction ( the calcium barrier in nerve speed induction), but with repetition of "identical" interactions the body produces an at a distance radio signal induced analog of the chemical interatoins" ,

                that was thirty years ago. Today we know that the bodies central nervous system uses ( epidermic ( surface) ) "radio" to by-pass the bio-chemical limits of nervous system response time( speed ) , do you think cells are any different in their billions of years of interaction, and more importantly; their proximity and deference to ionic ( radio /magnetic/ radiation ) interference at the nano-scale .
                In short , here is cesium reacting at the macro scale : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytxx95g-kiA, image this at a single atom level in any system

                EXCELLENT ! Those little cells have been practising a LONG time – performing their parts in unimaginably large choirs and composing symphonies of Life.
                By comparison, we are less than monkees clacking pretty stones together.

          I'm reading books on fasting. Fasting for 24 hours a day for 3 or 4 days a week or for 36 hours a day for 2 or 3 days a week. It is supposed to be nature's best healing.

          To avoid Alzheimer's the advice is to fast 12 to 16 hours every day. Gives the body a chance to heal itself.


    Even the in-fighting is smart. The level of 'brainiac' is breathtaking. I'm a proud mama. sniff sniff

  • Oh, so, did Ken B finally understand what I said to him about heavy-metals and heavier-elements, in the sand, under the ocean (and everywhere?)
    It seemed to me he was saying they called these elements, "heavy", just as a descriptive term which really meant nothing; nothing to do with weight, anyway. I found the whole exchange quite frustrating and left it off…
    But, perhaps, it got him trying to use a bit of common (?) sense.
    It was through that email conversation, however, that I became fully convinced, "Science", has become a system learned by rote, having nothing at all to do with reason. This is why I knew what I'd said for years, "Science has had all the common sense educated out of it", was accurate.
    I wish there was a way to change this system- BACK to what it used to be, prior to, "teaching to the test", became a thing.

    No surprise, to me, that they're finding 134Cs, 137Cs, far away. I am sure it's much further away, too, having spread pretty much (if not totally) everywhere on and in and above this planet. We've allowed them to screw it up pretty good, completely.



    Nuclear radiation depletes the ozone layer, will eventually destroy planet’s oxygen

    "The upper atmosphere is already charged with death-dealing radioactivity, for which it has not yet sent us the bill. It is slowly coming and we will have to pay for it in another century, even if atomic energy plants ceased today.”

    We are paying the piper now..in 100 years we will be Mars


    • Planetary Thermal Imbalance & Extreme UV Levels!


      Extreme UV levels are now being detected in both the Northern and Southern Hemisphere, spring and summer. I am suggesting that the increase in Northern hemisphere UV has been caused by atmosphere damage, from the large amount of ionizing radiation released into the Northern Hemisphere upper atmosphere, by the Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe.

        And the poor frog (humanity) was already boiling , now its gonne fry too.. 🙁

        From the link..
        25th May 2015 – Still 960,000Bq Cs-134/137 and 2,336,000,000Bq noble gas discharged from reactors to air every hour.

        This nuclear war study, indicates ozone damage. Fukushima is releasing and has released large amounts of atmospheric radiation, by some estimates equal to thousands of nuclear bombs. I would say Fukushima is not generating as much soot as their simulation. UV levels here can now frequently reach high to extreme levels in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, during spring and summer. During these events it is suggested, if possible, to stay out of the sun, or wear good UV rated sunglasses and protective clothing. This independent testing shows, UV-B was only 5% of the sunshine reaching us, it is now up to 60%.

        Great work, as always, vital1. Thanks for always staying on-course and providing helpful, intelligent analysis.


    Prochlorococcus and other ocean phytoplankton are responsible for 70 percent of Earth's oxygen production.

    However, some scientists believe that phytoplankton levels have declined by 40 percent since 1950 due to the warming of the ocean. Ocean temperature impacts the number of phytoplankton in the ocean.


    The Oxygen Crisis

    Evidence from prehistoric times indicates that the oxygen content of pristine nature was above the 21% of total volume that it is today. It has decreased in recent times due mainly to the burning of coal in the middle of the last century.

    Currently the oxygen content of the Earth's atmosphere dips to 19% over impacted areas, and it is down to 12 to 17% over the major cities. At these levels it is difficult for people to get sufficient oxygen to maintain bodily health: it takes a proper intake of oxygen to keep body cells and organs, and the entire immune system, functioning at full efficiency. At the levels we have reached today cancers and other degenerative diseases are likely to develop. And at 6 to 7% life can no longer be sustained.

      Only Love Can Defeat The New World Order

      Whatever side of whatever political divide you are on, these times will pass. The question is what will emerge on the other side. Do we want a world of hatred and division where people are divided and ruled by psychopaths and warmongers, or a world where love brings us together to create the world we want to live in? It’s not the Powers-That-Shouldn’t-Be’s choice to make; it’s ours. So what world do you want to live in?

    Probable Nuclear Explosion in the capital of Ghana. Authorities claim gas explosion but it is right near Ghana's Nuclear Research Center.
    Explosion look like scenes from the Terminator Movie.

    Check this video what the hell is that Shining after the explosion?????


  • laconic93 laconic93

    More angles of the video. Can anybody explain how anything flammable could of survived that initial explosion and still produce that shine effect??


  • unincredulous unincredulous

    Ghana explosion was simply a show and tell for the commission. A Powerpoint demonstration. This is what no immediate threat looks like. Also, this is what will happen if you don't equate nuclear fallout with sunshine and bananas. All on board. OK. Donuts and coffee after.

  • curly

    Someone could probably get a grant if they were trying to prove that low level radiation exposure was harmless. The nuclear industry would probably provide any funding necessary. But you'd never get funds if you were trying to prove the opposite to be true.

    I'd do it myself but I'm on a permanent, solo, general strike against, well, just about everything. While the rest enjoy the conveniences of modern technology, I martyr myself on a plastic cross and self flagellate. Just using the internet like this will mean 666 lashes.

    "German officials say that a spike in radioactivity has been detected in the air in western and central Europe.
    Elevated levels of the isotope Ruthenium-106 have been reported in Germany, Italy, Austria, Switzerland and France since September 29.
    The source of the Ruthenium-106 is still unknown, but calculations indicate it may have been released in eastern Europe."
