Jan. 6 tweet by Kinosita Kouta, a Japanese Journalist (Translation via Fukushima Diary)

At my lecture at Shirahama, I talked about my concern about the organic damage to the brain by radionuclides in Tokyo area for the first time. I feel like it’s going faster than we ever expected. The bad points of the personality are becoming more obvious, not answering the question directly and stick to different topics, forgetting about contents of the conversations. I often feel like, this person was not like this.

In the following interview broadcast within the last few weeks, a Chernobyl researcher reveals recent findings showing impaired neurological development in birds from radiation-contaminated areas that was influencing their ability to survive (e.g. escaping predators, finding food):

Top Biology Professor: Incredibly high frequency of very, very large abdominal tumors observed on latest trip to Chernobyl -- Also high percentage of smaller brains (VIDEO)

    The first people that were brain damaged were TEPCO and the government. Anyone in their right mind would have told the truth and evacuated EVERYONE from Fukushima right and within a, minimum, 100km radius. Then they would have enforced a lock down quarantine on all food and other products while also burying the radioactively contaminated materials deep below the ground near the reactor site.

    Chernobyl: Consequences of the catastrophe 25 years later
    by Janette D. Sherman, M.D., and Alexey V. Yablokov, Ph.D
    San Francisco Bay View
    April 27, 2011

    Jump down to:

    Central nervous system:

    The most serious effect of the Chernobyl radiation is to the brain and is a major medical, social and economic problem for the affected individual, the persons’ family and society at large.
    Studies of liquidators and those irradiated in utero reveal that even small amounts of nuclear radiation, considered harmless by official measures of radiation exposure, resulted in marked organic damage of the frontal, temporal and occipitoparietal lobes of the brain. These organic changes are reflected in nervous system dysfunction, including perception, short-term memory, attention span and operative thinking and result in behavioral and mental disorders and diminished intelligence.

      Also worth repeating from the report is this:

      Editor’s note: The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists asked Dr. Sherman, recognized worldwide for her expertise on Chernobyl, to write this article last year, then rejected it just before deadline, probably considering it too alarming. In it, she reports the widespread expectation of another nuclear power plant failure and the catastrophic consequences. Now, a few months later, the world commemorates the 25th anniversary of Chernobyl while watching the Fukushima meltdown.

      For more than 50 years, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have abided by an agreement that in essence allows them to cover each other’s back – sometimes at the expense of public health. It’s a delicate balance between cooperation and collusion.

      Signed on May 28, 1959, at the 12th World Health Assembly, the agreement states:

      “Whenever either organization proposes to initiate a programme or activity on a subject in which the other organization has or may have a substantial interest, the first party shall consult the other with a view to adjusting the matter by mutual agreement,” and continues: The IAEA and the WHO “recognize that they may find it necessary to apply certain limitations for the safeguarding of confidential information furnished to them. They therefore agree that nothing in this agreement shall be construed as requiring either of them to furnish such information as would, in the judgment of the other party possessing the information, interfere with the orderly conduct of its operation.”

    ECRR: Chernobyl 20 Years on. The Health Effects of the Chernobyl Accident

    “Psychological diseases correlate with levels of radioactive pollution. There is a steep and continuing increase in diseases of the nervous system, e.g. congenital convulsive syndrome, brain circulation pathology, general neurological diseases, short-term memory loss, deterioration of attention function in school-children.”

    “In adults there is growing evidence of a syndrome marked by deteriorating memory and motor skills, occurrence of convulsions, and pulsing headaches. This is caused by the destruction of brain cells and in the region has been dubbed Chernobyl dementia.”

    “…….Sometimes the weakening of the immune system in these radioactively polluted territories is referred to as Chernobyl AIDS.”

    “………. Disorders of intellectual development in children irradiated in utero in the polluted territories are described as the most tragic consequences of the Chernobyl catastrophe’s impact on health. ……… ….. ……….pathologies include neurotic disorders, asthenic syndrome, vegetative dystonia, CNS organic pathology, delayed mental development, EEG pathology, delayed development of speech, lowered psycho-emotional development, low IQ indices, deviations in mental development, memory impairment, immaturity for school, organic pathology of the brain, decreased and delayed psychomotor development, epilepsy and epilepsy-related conditions, and schizophrenia.”

    The IAEA, WHO and TEPCO should be a case for the International Criminal Courts
    March 26, 2011 by Mikkai

    The proposal to bring TEPCO before the International Criminal Court (ICC) was made by German politician, Stefan Wenzel on April 9th, 2011, during the IPPNW congress in Berlin. Watch his impressive speech here (beginning at 4:08 Min.):

    He also brought the following proposal to dissolve the secret relationship between the IAEA and WHO before the “Bundestag”, a federal legislative body in Germany.

  • Scientists discover lower IQ in post-Chernobyl children
    http://theforeigner.no/pages/news/scientists-discover-lower-iq-in-post-chernobyl-children/


    Nuclear fallout knows no state or national boundaries and will contribute to increase in illnesses, decrease in intelligence and in instability throughout the world.

    Keywords:
    Chernobyl;in utero;radiation exposure;cognitive function
    Heiervang, K. S., Mednick, S., Sundet, K. & Rund, B. R. (2010). Effect of low dose ionizing radiation exposure in utero on cognitive function in adolescence. Scandinavian Journal of Psychology, 51, 210–215.

    Radiation from the Chernobyl nuclear power plant meltdown greatly affected several Norwegian counties. The cognitive consequences of in utero exposure to radiation from the Chernobyl accident have been intensely debated. This study examines the cognitive outcomes for those Norwegians who were exposed as fetuses to the fallout from Chernobyl. The participants, 84 adolescents who were exposed in utero to radiation from the most contaminated areas in Norway and 94 adolescents from areas not contaminated by the radiation, were tested on verbal and nonverbal IQ. Two data analyses were conducted. First, using a control-group design, the IQ scores of exposed and unexposed adolescents were compared. Second, in a timing-of-exposure design, those exposed during the most sensitive period were contrasted with those exposed later in gestation. Adolescents exposed to low-dose ionizing radiation in utero scored significantly lower in full-scale IQ than unexposed adolescents.

    …the data add new and important support to the hypothesis that the Chernobyl accident may have had a subtle effect on the cognitive functioning of those exposed to low-dose ionizing radiation in utero during the most sensitive gestational period.

    Loss of the ability to move away from danger

    One of the remarkable traits of wildlife exposed to low levels of internal radiation is the loss of the ability to move away from danger or predator evasion.

    This trait is now being displayed in the Japanese living on the main island of Honshu. The change is at first subtle, but then becomes pronounced as the whole population begins of express the same trait.

    Are you figuring it out yet?

    It was only last summer that we were “greeted” with an article from the CDC (Atlanta) concerning a “Zombie Apocalypse” and, an associated military (Army) unit specifically trained and equipped to respond to such an environment.

    DNA altered, and brain damaged, individuals that need “immediate attention” to establish “ORDER.”

    Wait for the nukes to go off when the war with Iran starts!

    Divinity will intercede at the accurate time prescribed.

    Jesus and His Angles are the only answer to this cluster fuck.

    Which element tends to deposit in the brain? I think I remember Caldicott saying that cesium can do so (in addition to muscle tissue), but I’m not sure (and I don’t remember where I saw/heard it).

      The short answer is that Cs is one of the alkali metals, same family as sodium and potassium, both of which have important roles in basic metabolism, so “go figure”.

      Not meaning to sound offensive, I would like to find some more detailed references for this but time is short here.

      As Cs is not common in nature, there would be no life process evolved to cope with it – is my personal intuition.

      Anyway, that’s why Cs radioisotopes are so damn dangerous.

    Good point.

    Most people have failed to learn that all “religions” are man made and that one is to “seek the truth.”

    Thus leading to what mans religions are “organized” around.

    Lucifer guides non-truth, (i.e. “organized religion” not based in pure truth)

      Many here will scoff as to why religion is a topic in this venue, while scurrying about, for an answer to this most prolific dilemma.

      Forget the word, and concept of, “religion” … and seek the “truth.”

      No government will correct the problem at hand. They will only unleash more of the same to keep many off balance and, ultimately bring about total demise, thinking “they” will hide themselves from “you”… “us” … and the “truth.”

      There is a price to pay in the end.

        One of the original motivations to develop religion was to coalesce individuals and communities into a larger society.

        Later this developed into a useful management tool for the new idea of a Nation State.

        However, the community values necessarily at the heart of any religious school of thought eventually became a focus of opposition to the abuses of power inherent in state social management and also to the abuses of personal and corporate power.

        Ironically, of course [as a aside] the same potential abuse exists in a formal religious body. I guess this abuse is due to the size of the body (state, enterprise, church) when it becomes large enough to hide the growth of abusive minds within.

        Anyway, having studied it a bit, thought it might help the thread to offer this.

    talking of brain damage

    Nuclear technicians watching Internet sites, not the nuclear controls

    Nine technicians responsible for monitoring operations at a Louisiana nuclear power plant spent on-duty time surfing the Internet — visiting websites that included news, sports, fishing and retirement information — jeopardizing the safety of the plant, federal regulators say.

    The Nuclear Regulatory Commission disclosed the web-surfing activities Monday in a letter that proposes a $140,000 fine against the River Bend nuclear power station, 24 miles northwest of Baton Rouge……

    According to an NRC investigation, nine operators “deliberately violated” the safety procedures by surfing the web between January and April of 2010.

    http://nuclear-news.net/2012/01/10/nuclear-technicians-watching-internet-sites-not-the-nuclear-controls/

    nuclear engineers always come to enenews for the up to date and well researched news on the web… i mean where else they going to go.. the physics forum? a dark seedy and sometimes imformative blog! enenews has more up to date info and a warm “have a cofee, put your weary nuclear feet up” atmosphere. unless you are from WPP or one of their minions of course :)
