Kevin Kamps, Beyond Nuclear (former radioactive waste specialist at NIRS): The regulations in the US are worse than the regulations in Japan in terms of radioactive contamination […]

The difference between Japan and the United States is kind of startling. In Japan, at this point the permissible level of radioactivity in food is 100 becquerels per kilogram […] In the United States the permissible level is 1,200. So Japan’s limits are 12 times stronger than ours, which means that we could very certainly be importing food from Japan that’s considered unfit to eat there.

Host: […] That’s insane.

    I wonder where our commurepublicrat NWO ruling class is gettin' their vittles, and what radioactive limitations are on their food.

  • Lee Binder

    100 bq/ kg = the current AFTER Fuku limit. I remember the JP gov. had RAISED to that limit some time after Fuku (which beyond the slightest shadow of a doubt is a criminal act by itself, but that's a different story).

    What again was the (closer to legitimate) PRE Fuku limit value?

    Remember as soon as the accident started Hillary made deals with Canada to Hide everything so the DEMS have done a dis service to all America, including hiding GMO foods in stores and not labeling them like they are supposed to do. NOW they will hide radioactive foods too which are considered Nuclear waste.

      Well I guess the only silver lining in this might be that everything grown in our hemisphere will be contaminated too. It just looks more deliberate everyday. Why would a government allow harm to its people unless it wanted to?

      • many moons

        I'm finally coming to the realization that the US goverment does not give a rats ass about the people living in the US.

        "Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their Powers
        from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of
        Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right
        of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute a
        New Government….it is their Right, it is their Duty, to
        throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards? for
        their future Security."
        — Thomas Jefferson

          I'm waiting for things to kick off, but it's not even to the point where you can get a couple hundred protesters together at any one time. Maybe when more wake up (or die).

        • Anthony Anthony

          I'm with you. I haven't seen *our* situation the same way since seeing a disaster related documentary where a Govt Official clearly stated that the public misunderstands the Govt's role in a massive disaster. That if a nuclear attack or natural disaster happens there IS NO MANDATE that the Govt has to respond, help or even react to. That people do not understand when it comes to their personal survival through those times they are actually on their own to do so.

          Now where the hell did I put my rose colored glasses anyways?!

          • JHewes76 JHewes76

            it's also the same with the Police. They courts have stated that they have no mandate to help people. So…. who do we turn to for help?

            • Anthony Anthony

              Exactly. While we have the comforts of home there are Sandy Victims who`d tell us the world has ended. I cant imagine how alone they feel here, right now, with all of us.

              Security is a facade, a mirage.

              Katrina was a *first time* almost forgivable in time, Sandy drives the point home of how alone we will be in a disaster. Ask a Sandy refugee.

      hi mark
      heres a bit of research i did in september
      its a bit scrappyut lays out the evidence well enough.. it came in through nafta.. likely confectionary for dairy and spices .. processed foods are the real suspects though

      NAFTA, where has all Japans radiation gone?

      http://nuclear-news.net/2012/09/02/nafta-where-has-all-japans-radiation-gone/

      there is more to that but i will also show how the usa likely gets food with uranium from tanzania, likely processed dinners, canned goods etc

      Breaking! Imports from Tanzania grown with Uranium dust from Uranium mining for Global supermarkets? UK and India affected?
      The project was recently visited by Paul Wolfowitz

      the list of allowable culinary isotopes is listed on the bulbous first link near the bottom
      hope this hwlps to build a clearer picture
      bon appetite!

      boy! that was the quickest mention of chernobyl heart.. geraldine thomas`s favourite subjecy 🙂
      well done thom!
      great interview too!

      • arclight arclight

        i suspect the african dusty food comes to nafta via mexico imo

      • arclight arclight

        the linits set by codex on the nafta link are guidlines only and the amount of contamination is expected to be higher , here and there..??

        remember up to 40,000 bequerels/kg in condiments and spices!!
        makes you think?? huh?

        maybe tobacco too?

      @markww

      Now don't say that Hillary did not leave a legacy when she goes. Let's hope we don't have someone equally incompetent as the next Secretary of State.

      Could there possibly be ANYONE who still believes in Hillary Clinton? Contemplate this while you eat your breakfast cereal (which almost certainly has radioactive ingredients in it and they won't say if it does because–it's proprietary!) Kellogs anyone? A little more tea?

      • Radio VicFromOregon

        NP, surely you don't believe that Hillary Clinton set the standards for nuclear radiation? Could you see your way to holding the nuclear industry to account, our own NRC, and just about every medical doctor who says that radiation is not harmful to account? Clinton is just going on their information. Remember, our standard for acceptable radiation exposure is nearly 10 times higher than Japan's. By our national standards. she is doing the right thing. That's how this works – people seek out expert advice and follow it. Nearly all expert advice says that radiation is no problem. They are dearly wrong, but, non-experts in the status quo, especially political figures, have to rely on them until more experts decide to change the standards. That's called "The System".

        ChasAha, i agree with these folks and their concerns, but 99% of medical researchers and doctors do not agree with them, which is so very frustrating and "angerfying" if i may use my neighbors term for when things upset her. Any ideas on how we fix this? Anyone? Do we make sure the researchers you found get better coverage? Make sure they get financially supported? How do we help them get this message out so that the current thinking on nuclear radiation exposure rates can be changed?

    and heres the radioactive tobacco piece.. lordy!

    What do Tony Blair, nuclear power, depleted uranium, radioactive tobacco and the Nobel family have in common?
    The real point of this wide ranging article is to highlight the international scope of this cover up on contamination issues and allowing high levels in the rest of the world while showing the low levels in japan.

    outh africa -1.6 million people living with dangerous radioactive contamination of food air and water!

    “Meat, fish, milk, maize and other crops produced near Wonderfontein Spruit in Gauteng are probably harmful to people as they are seriously contaminated by, among others, radioactive pollutants. This pollution, resulting from overflow from sludge dams during 100 years of mining, affects the area between Randfontein and Potchefstroom, where more than 400,000 people live. International experts say people who eat or drink these products could suffer liver or kidney failure or get cancer. It could also hamper children’s growth and cause mental disability. “

    Nuclear Lead poisoning cover-up UK, serious wildlife contamination found!

    In a recent wildlife report it was shown that birds tested in the period winter 2010 to winter 2011 were found that elevated levels of lead (i.e. >20.0 μg/dL) were found in the blood of 34 % (n = 285) of waterbirds tested at four sites in Britain during the 2010/2011 winter this happening during some of the largest radioactive releases from nuclear power plants and medical reactors.

    Does anybody have any links to share concerning the food coming out of the Central Valley in CA?
    Of particular concern is the grape crop used for the wine – is there any testing being done anywhere?

    • Mack Mack

      @Sol Man (and everyone)

      Probably the most comprehensive list you're going to find on radiation in food is from ENENewser "vital1" here:

      http://sccc.org.au/archives/2861

      Scroll down for the USA list, and

      On 8/28/12 there's info on rads in oranges, grapefruit and dried prunes in California

      On 8/23/12 – milk and rain in California

      On 8/18/12 – pistachio nuts in California

      On 7/12/12 – prunes and almonds in California

      From reading these you can get at least an idea of the rad levels in California foodstuffs.

    Mack and Mark- Thanks for the information, but like everybody, I think that we all really need a continuous source for the monitoring results of everything "out there."
    The red wine as radiation cure is interesting (hope it works!) but am really curious what is on the grapes, in the bottle, red and white.

  • tasteslikedaniel

    Id like to remind you guys that after chernobyl they told the liquidators that vodka would cure radiation, I wouldnt go thinking that drinking wine is going to save your ass

    vitamins and nutrients are your only hope. you take iodine to fill your tyhriod so it wont absorb the iodine-131, well eating calcium will stop cesium from being absorbed. these particles get processed like nutrients and if your diet is lacking in the proper nutrients a cesium will get put where a calcium needs to go, giving you cancer. If you are stocked up on all your essiential vitamins minerals and nutrients your body can process and flush out the toxins, or at least have a better chance…I believe they studied the effects of diets after the WWII bombings and found that diets rich in natural sources of iodine and nutrients gave you a better chance of survival

  • JHewes76 JHewes76

    Yeah, but the Corporations over here are getting fantastic deals on that food they are importing… good for the bottom dollar. Profit margins are huge. (SARC)
