Nuclear Expert: Fukushima “like the worst nightmare becoming reality” — Released as much as 1,000 atomic bombs worth of radioactive material — “Everyone on earth has been exposed… an increase in cancer will be the result”

Published: March 11th, 2016 at 10:06 am ET


Interview with nuclear engineer Hiroaki Koide (translation by Prof. Robert Stolz, transcription by Akiko Anson), published Mar 8, 2016 (emphasis added):

  • As for the scale of the [Fukushima] accident… we simply don’t know… all the measuring equipment was destroyed at the time of the accident…
  • The Japanese government has reported estimates [of] 1.5×10^16 Becquerels of Cs-137, which would make it a release of 168 times more radioactive material than the Hiroshima bombing. And this is only material released into the atmosphere…
  • But I myself think the government’s numbers are an underestimate. Various experts and institutes from around the world have offered several of their own estimates… some two or three times higher than the government’s numbers. According to these other estimates I think that the release of Cs-137 into the atmosphere could be around 500 times the Hiroshima bombing.
  • What has been washed into the sea… is likely not much different from the levels released into the atmosphere. Even today we are unable to prevent this release. And so if we combine the amount of Cs-137 released in the air and the ocean together, we get an estimate several hundred times the Hiroshima levels. And some estimates suggest the Fukushima accident could be as much as one-thousand Hiroshimas
  • The amount released into the atmosphere from the explosion during the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear plant was 800 to 1000 times the Hiroshima levels. Put simply, these estimates place Fukushima on par with Chernobyl…
  • [T]he radioactive material released from Fukushima has been dispersed across the globeeveryone on earth has been exposed to additional radiation… An increase in cancer will be the result
  • Not a single nuclear expert or policy maker ever seriously considered the possibility of an accident like this… I had been commenting on the possibility, referring to some results of simulations. But still I would have thought the kind of disaster that happened at Fukushima was some kind of impossible nightmare―yet it actually happened. It was like the worse nightmare becoming a reality… all those pronuclear people surely never gave it a moment’s thought. And so when it actually happened, no one had thought about, let alone built a system to deal with it.

Asia-Pacific Journal, Mar 2016: As we learn in this wide-ranging and important interview [with Hiroaki Koide], the accident often referred to as 3/11 was enormous and in many ways unprecedented. The full scope of the disaster is still unknown, but is clearly on the scale of Chernobyl, placing the amount of radioactive material released… up to 1,000 times the Hiroshima bombing of 1945.

        BUt…Tepco's OWN self investigation said there is no danger ( from building an NPP on a thrust (among other ) fault(s)), so it's all good right ?

        I mean it not like Tepco ( and the japanese banking/government which now owns it ) have proven through the handling of the FDND themselves to be low down double dealing backstabbing larcenous perverted worms…oh wait…
        ( no seriously wait: the banks that have been funding tepco want their money and since the banks are government there those nukers will be turned back on to generate profit to pay those loans come hell or high water, despite public will or safety ( at any level ) , so it's only a matter of time before more hell and high water claim the next nuker rattle trap.

    Federal prosecutors declined to bring charges against law enforcement officers in the United States facing allegations of civil rights violations in 96 percent of such cases between 1995 and 2015, according to an investigation by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review newspaper.

    The newspaper examined nearly 3 million U.S. Justice Department records related to how the department's 94 U.S. attorney's offices across the country, and in U.S. territories including Puerto Rico, handled civil rights cases against officers.

    The data included cases referred to the Justice Department by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other agencies, as well as investigations that prosecutors opened on their own.

    Overall, prosecutors turned down 12,703 potential civil rights violations out of 13,233 total complaints. By contrast, prosecutors rejected only about 23 percent of referrals in all other types of criminal cases, the newspaper said. …

    The most common reasons that prosecutors cited for declining to bring civil rights cases against officers were weak or insufficient evidence, lack of criminal intent and orders from the Justice Department, according to the Tribune-Review. …

    Scientific american was supposed to be a collection of articles published by scientists. The editorial bent was to post articles by scientists showcasing discoveries and findings in a way that was more accessible to most people. At a point at the beginning of the atomic age scientific americans editors became coerced by the nucleoapes with their lies and propaganda about the safety of using highly radioactive and highly otherwise poisonous substances to boil water. The editors of scientific american biased their content by publishing scientifically and ethically wrong articles promoting the common orwellian lies by the government , the military-industrial complex, and the nucleoapes have helped poison this planet with radioactive toxins. They did it partially because they were coerced by a nasty government, for money, and because their contributors were in the government and nucleoapes pockets for grant money and research.

    Nuclear workers retaliated against for exposing problems-
    "In her job at the Savannah River Site nuclear weapons plant in South Carolina, Sandra Black was responsible for looking into concerns raised by employees about everything from health and safety to fraud, abuse, harassment and retaliation.

    But in fall 2014, when federal investigators with the Government Accountability Office asked her whether she had the necessary independence to do her job, Black says she answered truthfully: She told them her supervisors had interfered with her work and had tried to intimidate her into changing her findings if they validated employees’ complaints."


    Here's the Big Problem With Those Low Gas Prices Obama Is So Happy About

    ..That could prompt a sweep of spending reductions and cuts to education, poverty programs, and other social services. data show a steep drop in revenue from severance taxes 😉 which natural resource companies pay to states when they extract oil, coal, or natural gas.

    When oil prices drop, oil production drops next, followed by severance tax revenue. And for states such as Alaska, Wyoming, and North Dakota, which draw a majority of their income from severance taxes, that means the budget can quickly implode. Now, policymakers in those states are scrambling to make up the shortfall in other ways and decide which state programs could face the chopping block.

    Individual and corporate income taxes are also significantly affected by oil and natural gas prices.
    The current tax crisis could signal an urgent need for oil-reliant states to diversify their tax base. 😉

    "There's no question it's not sustainable in Alaska," he said. Other states are at risk of following suit. "You're going to have to rethink your strategy for funding public services 😉 if you think oil and gas prices are going to stay really low levels."



    While regulated utility companies do not evict customers, the same does not apply to “submeter” companies that handle electricity and water billing for some apartments and condominiums.

    For these companies, threatening eviction is a tool to get customers to pay bills, some of which have been weighed down by above-market prices and a host of fees.

    Deep-Earth reactor: Nuclear fission, helium, and the geomagnetic field…

    …The uranium fission geo-reactor simulation discussed in the present paper was constrained to operate at a constant power level of 3 TW. Additional heat production from the natural radioactive decay of 235U and 238U would increase the power level at the time of Earth formation to 4.3 TW, decreasing over time to a present-day level of 3.5 TW. The power level adopted for the simulation was chosen to permit continuous reactor operation over the entire lifetime of the Earth without prematurely consuming all of the actinide fuel. Had thorium been included, those power levels might have been as much as about three times as great. …

      The Oklo nuclear reactor is a hoax:
      “…The Oklo uranium deposits were geologically estimated to be about 1.7 billion years old. Perrin suggested the reaction took place naturally at that time, since the uranium would have been at its purest. Instead of the 0.7 percent concentration of U235 we see today, it would have been at about 3 percent.
      “Water is needed for uranium to “burn” in a reaction. The widely accepted explanation for the natural reaction states that water entered the ore deposit, initiating the chain reaction. But the water must be very pure to start such a reaction, noted the late Dr. Glenn T. Seaborg.
      “Seaborg was head of the United States Atomic Energy Commission and he won a Nobel Prize for his work in the synthesis of heavy elements. He said the reaction could not have happened naturally.

      “His view is summarized by Rene Noorbergen in Noorbergen’s book “Secrets of the Lost Races”:
      “’Even a few parts per million of any contaminant will ‘poison’ the reaction, bringing it to a halt. The problem is that no water that pure exists naturally anywhere in the world!
      “’A second objection to Dr. Perrin’s report involved the uranium itself. Several specialists in reactor engineering remarked that at no time in the geologically estimated history of the Oklo deposits was the uranium ore rich enough in U235 for a natural reaction to have taken place.

    ¨So far, robots have been taking our place to research inside reactor buildings and to reflect the results to the plans, which contributes to the reduction of operational risk of radiation exposure.
    We are expecting to apply remote techniques further to the operations, such as the decontamination of the high-dose radiation area inside the reactor buildings and the removal of fuel debris from the reactor contaminant vessel or the reactor pressure vessel.
    Many corporations and organizations both domestic and overseas have been supporting and cooperating on robots and the related technologies.

    What happens when masses of children do come down with radiation cancers?

    'Children with Cancer in Hospitals'

    "The AMA has forced laws to be written that allow doctors to do anything they want to your child with or without your permission. These laws were passed to rescue children from people who held religious beliefs against all treatments. This is a belief held by Christian Scientists. Unfortunately, these laws are now being used to prevent parents from treating their children with alternative cancer treatments.

    One woman put her son in a Utah children's hospital for cancer. During his short stay, three children died as the result of their first chemo treatment (the deaths were not reported as due to chemo). Two other mothers became terrified that chemo would be given to their children and had to sue the hospital to get their children out.

    Hospitals will administer any drug they want with or without your permission. They will take your child away if you disagree with their treatment even if it makes your child worse. You can get the paperwork that you must sign for admission as soon as possible and take it to a lawyer (there is usually a week or two between the decision to hospitalize and the actual hospitalization). At least you will know what rights you are giving up.

    • Time Is Short Time Is Short

      Even children not in a hospital are likely to have their treatment controlled by the state and not the parents. Smart parents take children out of a hospital, and across state borders to avoid "treatments" that the original hospital was forcing on a young patient.

      Here are some true stories that will shock you:

      FDA Forces Fatal Chemo on Kids* By Kristen Philipkoski Oct. 15, 2002, Reprinted from Wired News, the story of Michael and Raphael Horwin, "When we were reluctant to bring in Alexander for chemo, the oncologist wrote in his chart that a court order might be necessary so that they could forcibly take our son from us,"

        I seriously doubt that the authority to do that was ever given to the federal government. Most powers were reserved to the states, and a parent has a hell of an argument that the care of their children was reserved to them.

  • I've been suffering some time now.
    I'm very afraid of the future, my health symptoms are leaning towards meds. I have a hole in my gum which is a terrible site to see.
    It constantly flares in infection every other year. But lately I can feel myself more tired than usual.

    I believe I am suffering a form of advancing cancer now. However it is advancing far more rapidly this last month. I can't afford my medical bills. I'm swamped.In debt and I noticed an orangish lump in my throat this week. 4mm, x 6mm.

    Since Denver I've been trying to keep my self healthy. But I'm having a hard time quitting smoking. My ears feel infected as well as my naval cavity.
    Ever since my urine was bloody things have escalated.
    I think the gum site behind my molar appears to be leading to tooth enamel loss, and multiple infection sites. My lungs are not feeling well now either.

    I suppose front line Tacomagroove kept the promise I'd made in 2011. I just hoped that my posture of staying indoors was the common cure to exposure.
    I'm losing weight, and in a way I am having a hard time gaining an appetite.

    I feel that I was quite right. In 2011 I estimated 30% cancer rise on the west coast, within 5 years time. It is just ironic that I'd kept my self protected as best I could. Yet am one of the first that is feel the exposure in my personal life. (Maybe collecting Tsunami debris Was a bad idea).

        And I'm knocking on the door, asking for your pain to be eased, for your heart to have lightness and your physical needs to be met.

        • Thank you eternally Angela_R

          Your absolute knowledge in solar physics is very astute and professional. I admired your posts on this topic alone.

          In the beginning I was quite the digger of information related to this specific crisis.
          Now a days, I feel that every public link had been documented by our members in full, and in multiple quantities. The information as pertinent as it is, seems drowned almost. As if there was intent to drown down the actual events currently taking place on site.

          It's not so much that the event is anywhere near halted. It's just unfortunate that newly released content is being drowned to most degree.
          Sometimes I read several hundred articles a day. Knowledge is God.
          (Or so they say).
          So please allow me to say thank you again. Last week my cough increased exponentially… Leading me to discover the small node in the back of my throat.
          It's very likely a symptom of the site on my jaw. (One can actually see the jawbone being exposed through this site). While it's been a developing problem thats infection left Me hospitalized last year. The antibiotics helped greatly.
          However, I'm now facing the need for an oral surgeon. I'm not sure that the gum is cancerous. But the throat is now impacted, and appears to be transferring the infection to my lungs stomach and kidneys. Hence the bloody stool samples earlier in the year.
          I went to the er. They gave me antibiotics and sent me home.
          Go figure.

          • I suppose what I meant by that is when I went to the actual hospital. They gave me pills for A Very Serious Problem!.
            No diagnosis, or after care. And that was nearly a thousand dollar bill alone.

            I almost wish I were Canadian, even Mexico's hospital would likely have provided a more consistent medical interest. I even asked could it be cancerous? The guy shrugged, gave me a high dose antibiotic, and sent me on my way.


            I will attempt to take some pictures. Maybe Dr. Good heart, or others here have a more consistent medical knowledge that they can offer me. However even if I identified the problem medically. The hospital would require a full entry examination either way. I suppose it's simply a waste of time to that regard.

            Pardon my ranting.

            One would simply feel that after seeing a medical expert and being billed exponentially that the diagnosis would be taken in full and in full seriousness.
            I don't even want to begin predicting how expensive the tests will be just to be diagnosed with cancer. God's plan for me is getting much more complex as the world turns.
            Much more complex indeed :(…

            • @everyone.
              If you have medical history please provide your "unprofessional" opinion;) note this isn't pretty I think it's a Likely cancerous.

                You guys on west coast may want to check out your throats too

                  Tacoma, this is from a neighbor (Oly). I would strongly suggest that you check out oil pulling ( It can't help with everything else, but it might allow you to avoid antibiotics (which depress the immune system, which is the last thing you want). You probably already use ginger, garlic, Gasser's baking soda regime and all.
                  My heart goes out to you. It really sucks, this nuclear nightmare.

                    Taco, I had 1 abcess (sp?)in my upper gum and i in my lower gum both on the same side. My cheek swelled up hugely and there was a huge lump in my cheek. I put on Neosporin and it broke open. My daughter told me to put hot compresses on it and I looked on the internet for natural antibiotics. I took raw garlic, turmeric, thyme in my food. I saw a video by an MD who cut out most of the abcess but there was a small part left. He told the patient to rub it often to improve the circulation. It is just very tiny now. I also ate a lot of citrus (from the food banks). I eat vegan, and eat foods rich in B-17. I eat the seeds of apples and citrus. Also I floss my teeth and scrub with flat toothsticks.

                    B17 just targets cancer cells and also gives pain relief. Also I try to eat an alkaline diet and avoid spices.

                    • @pt
                      My problem is that I've had several abscesses located almost behind my left top molar. There isn't an actual abscess now. However because the multiple incidents before my actual haw bone is exposed.

                      I'm actually really skinny so it's a very tight area and being English, my teeth are very compressed.

                      When I do get pain, or signs of an abscess I try the typical remedies, hot compress cold, hot salt.water, mouth wash etc.

                      However the area is now just an actual hols in my gum line exposing the jaw bone itself. I feel like my ears are stuffed with wax and like eventually it Wil lead to my brain? (Note how I feel).

                      So because it's fully exposed I believe my jaw bone is now infected itself. The site can't really abscess anymore because their is no pocket left?

                    • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar PraisingTruth


                      I also eat a lot of cabbage and a small amount of coconut oil.

                      If you have a toothache, chewing raw garlic really helps (there are also other suggestions on the internet, but this one helped me the most).

                    • Note it's the throat node that really seems to be effecting me now though. (Physical health wide).
                      My system simply seems like it is breaking down. (Like my actual organs now).

                      I don't really know very much, just what I've read and what has worked for me.

                      Flax seeds have omega 3 fatty acids. You can make nut milk with flax seeds or yogurt. You only need 1 tsp. of ground up flax seeds a day. And flax seeds also have B-17. And millet is alkaline not acid as are other grains. Turmeric is also a guard against cancer.

                      I also swished with coconut oil on my teeth and gums and a natural antibiotic a few times.

                      I also used a lot of hydrogen peroxide. to swish inside my mouth, you dilute it by at least 1/2 with water. And I applied it topically on the outside of my cheek.

                      My abscesses are related to 3 broken teeth, broken below the gum line. But I don't have a problem with an abscess right today. I have no money to go to a dentist. It is amazing what people share on the internet who have no money.

                    • I agree

                      Dental in our nation is for the privileged. It's a sad testimony of our national standard. Being born to a meek household is the epitome of helplessness. Our bodies are nothing more than slave labor vessels. Why replace what's broken when the next generation of youth will take ones place.

                      Someone posted here that coconut oil cures 80% of colon cancers. I get mine at Walmart, but don't eat more than 1 tbsp. a day.

                      I also take bentonite clay and zeolite every day. It draws out heavy metals and radiation. And I take 7 capsules once a week of walnut from the green null to get rid of parasites. I take a liquid calcium with vitamin D for my bones. If your diet is totally vegan your body doesn't secrete calcium the way it does for people eating animal based food. Good health comes from adding certain foods and herbs (I add cilantro all the time to draw out heavy metals), but it is also avoiding most of the foods in the SAD diet (Standard American diet).

                      Some good suggestions there Pt. However if the abscesses have gone into the bone, the toxins may still need to be drained.

                      Maybe if I recite my experiences with abscesses, Tarcome there may be something that relates to yours.

                      I've had three abscesses in the jaw bone. They gave me no pain, so I was never sure how long they had festered. The last one was in November.

                      I became breathless, my throat was raspy, had a cough and my voice started to crack and sound hoarse. The tooth was extracted and the bone drilled and toxins drained.

                      However, I am unsure whether that has yet again kicked off digestive problems.

                      I think my system played round robin, from the stomach to the teeth and back again….I have a cut from one excision that goes well down into my jaw bone.

                      I suspect that the infection had spread to other areas; as I got no pain I was unaware how long they were in the bone.

                      For some months now, I have been unable to swallow any solid food. Next week I am having my fourth endoscopy and third dilation in two months, which is being done to help convey the food from the oesophagus to the stomach. Lots of scaring and strictures.

                      They had been unable to get the camera into the stomach, but have now seen a large hiatus hernia. I am not losing weight, I puree everything.
                      So far they have not located cancer.

                      My current problems may be totally unrelated to the abscess/es.

                    • You would think my initial diet is laughable. Some weeks, I live off very very intolerable rations.

                      Vitamins are like diamonds to me. Hard if not impossible to obtain on my budget, yet extremely desirable.

                    • @Angela_r.

                      Is the jab bone able to become infected? As I've a feeling that, this may be the case with my situation and if so, do you know if there is even a possible way to treat it without surgery?

                      I am very poor. To an extent that poor is an understatement. Hence me comparing vitamins to diamonds. :/

                    • Note that my last actual abscess nearly killed me. I was literally suffering and weak beyond all belief:(
                      The er nurse Was very inappropriate as I asked one simple question "could it be cancer". The look he gave me wasn't exactly relieving.

                    • Angela_R

                      Unless I am reading you incorrectly, Tarcome, your tooth has been extracted? and the problem was/is in the top gums?

                      My second last molar at the top had one. I was at boarding school, it was very painful, different to the ones that were in my jaw bone. Over the next four years I visited three different dentists, they ex-rayed and found nothing. One day, like PT, my face swelled, they could not dismiss it.

                      One by one they removed the fillings, luckily they soon found it.

                      Your link did not work; I typed it into images and came up with a number of different photos, some showed a black mass…

                      We do have government services in my country for people who cannot afford a dentist; those who are suffering like you, would be seen as soon as possible.

                      Unfortunately though, things are also now tightening up here.

                      The oil pulling is certainly worth a try, likewise the other recommendations.

                    • No it's never been extracted.

                      The Er seems to always drain the abscess then send me home with antibiotics. I feel great for a year or so then they're animate. However the past infections appeared in the same site. It's now left a sizeable / distinct hole (well above the tooth line literally exposing the jab bone itself). While it is a nominally small whole I could easily poke my bone itself with a tooth pick. I feel that the infection is n>>> I see where your lost and Fml.
                      It's the upper portion. That's not a jaw bone, it's my skull

                      Hence likely why it feels like an infection is spreading to my ears as well.
                      Maybe that's why my hearing is off. (I'm obviously not thinking clearly) :/
                      Where are you from?

                    I need to see if it's safe for open lesions. Reading about the immune boost was essential. I'm very worried about the node itself though. Not sure if it's a tumor or? But it's beginning to give me very debilitating symptoms within my entire body. I.e. mainly stomach and Lungs.
                    I also keep getting a sensation like I have worms in the back of my throat. This all happened as I came back to Washington. It's getting to be a real difficult situation to avoid in life.

                    I get my colloidal silver from

                    Colloidal Silver for after dental work

                    Colloidal Silver
                    …Silver has been known for centuries for its antibacterial properties
                    and disinfection purposes. Colloidal silver is very effective because
                    of its small particle size and therefore the active surface is
                    What is Colloidal Silver?
                    Colloidal Silver is the result of an electrolytic process that pulls
                    submicroscopic particles of Silver from a larger piece of pure Silver
                    in to water. These particles are held in suspension by the tiny
                    electric charge of each particle. As minute particles, the silver can
                    more easily penetrate and travel throughout the body.
                    Colloidal Silver has been shown to kill certain bacteria, fungus and
                    viruses and even tumor cells. It has also been shown to stimulate bone
                    growth and promote wound healing, including in patients with serious
                    burn wounds. The effect of colloidal silver was more effective than
                    some standard antibiotics, yet can be well tolerated because it is
                    absorbed high up in the intestinal tract and will not disturb the
                    bacterial balance in the lower part of the intestinal tract.
                    The action of Silver is cell-structure specific. Any cell that does
                    not possess a chemically resistant wall is affected by the action of
                    the Silver, including bacteria and other organisms without cell walls,
                    for example the extracellular viruses. Since mammalian cells have an
                    entirely different coating on their cells,…

                      silver has no effect upon
                      those cells.
                      Side Effects
                      For humans, silver has only a marginal toxicity. 2 tsp. per day
                      contain less silver than the limit set by the World Health
                      Colloidal Silver and the Clark Protocol
                      Dr Clark recommends the use of colloidal Silver principally as an
                      antiseptic during and after the dental-work. Six drops on toothbrush
                      after meals and one tbs. as mouthwash, gargle, swallow is particularly
                      effective against Clostridium. To alleviate pain the recommended
                      dosage to alleviate pain is: one to four tbs., up to ½ up in acute
                      situations. 1 tablespoon after 10 minutes another tablespoon. Repeat
                      until the pain diminishes. Do not exceed ½ cup. (120 ml).

                      Yes. Praising Truth. Good advice. I recently had a bout with a dry socket,two bone grafts,and two skin grafts,over a three month period. They failed,and the bone was removed.

                      I began treating the socket with 30ppm collodial silver. Tissue completely filled the socket within ten days.

                      One thing that is important to stress is that wounds heal slowly,or fail to heal,in a radioactive environment. Reducing exposure increases healing. I know this from my own experience.

                Tacomagroove, I'm so very sorry to hear of your health problems. Can you try Colloidal silver? Maybe diluted Agrumax to try to control the infection? It would have to be very diluted if you have exposed bone.

                My teeth and bones got demineralized in 2011. My right ankle is permanently demineralized now.

                Its sounds almost like you have Morgellon's disease. And that would likely mean you have Lyme disease. Just before my Lyme diagnosis, I had a gum infection which had black tar coming out of it. Literally.

                The dentist and an ENT specialist both told me it is impossible for a gum infection to go clear through the tissues into the sinuses, but that's what happened.

                I took high doses of grapefruit seed extract to get the infection under control. Gotta be careful with that, it's very potent and concentrated, and can burn your tissues if not handled properly.

                Hyssop tincture is really helpful for the lungs, as is Pleurisy root.

                When they began to get my Lyme under control, the Morgellons symptoms went away almost entirely. That was one heck of a gum infection, though. A ball of black goo about 1/2" across came out of the hole between my molars and sinuses when I gave it the Citrus Seed Extract bathing.

                Have also used Japanese knotweed. I no longer believe in the use of most allopathic medicine.

                  We used a Rife machine to cure my spouse's pneumonia, when it was developing from a serious case of bronchitis. I used it to cure myself of human babesiosis, a very serious blood borne protozoan infection, which is a lot like malaria.

                    Not medical, of course. Rife is used for "experimental treatment" only as it's not FDA approved. (Most of the worthwhile things are NOT FDA approved.)

To be exponentially honest, I haven't heard of.90 percent of the products mentioned.within the context of the last few hours conversation. Medical talk is like another language to me. I understand flux dynamics, pulsars, electrons, atoms, quantum entanglement. But I couldn't suggest aspirin over Tylenol.let alone the symptoms in which one would need to prescribe them.

                      Tacomagroove, you can read about Royal Raymond Rife, MD on the web. There are documentaries on him on YouTube now. IMO Rife technology will hammer just about anything infectious, and cancers, too.

                      It works best when used with Colloidal silver and other natural antibiotics. You can build or buy an inexpensive colloidal silver generator. But I think that's beyond your means right now.

                      Still think you should try to find a Rife group in Yahoo Groups online. See if there's anyone in your area who will let you use their machine.

                      You just have to find the right Hz frequencies for a "hit" using Rife. It works by attenuating sine or square waves of electrical frequencies into body tissues at various Hz wavelengths. Probably not the best explanation ….

                    Felt much better after getting my mercury amalgams removed. Am allergic to mercury and nickel. Mercury gives me bad neurological symptoms.

                    Used Grapefruit Pectin to detox, along with Cilantro, Bentonite clay, Spirulina, and Chlorella.

                    All these things which can remove heavy metals are important for people to use now, when they can. And zeolites, Fulvic acid will pull heavy metals from the body.

                    Pulling the heavy metals (and hopefully some radioactive materials) from your system through chelation might be a very good place to begin. It would also help your immune system a lot, and would help you to detox. Just be sure to get adequate minerals if you do that.

                • Thank you hotaters. I was brushing up on the potential symptoms for cross diagnoses. That Was one other illness that I'd considered. Again I'm quite terrible with the health field and vitamin consumption.
                  Honestly It's very helpful to have this input. Seeing how many of us have suffered.these symptoms makes me quite sad. It's beginning to look like pre technological man's initial oral health, was vastly more efficient?

                Looks like an infected tonsil and necrotic tissue on the back of your tongue. You apparently also have a lot of mercury amalgams, which will cause illness in and of themselves.

                Please write to me off list. We can discuss vitamins. I'll gladly send you some, and we can talk about a shopping list for herbs and such. I have some extra Japanese knotweed here. It's amazing, treats infections, it's anti-fungal, promotes proper cell apoptosis (cell death, anti-cancer properties). Can order some whole Hyssop for you from a top flight herbal store I shopped with for years, up north.

                Really, I'd like to help. I could supply you with enough to give you at least a month's worth of vitamins and enough herbals, etc., to try to hammer whatever is causing that infection.

                Plus I can brainstorm with you on what might work best in your situation.

                Home tomorrow AM. It's late now so I likely won't be up early. But will check for messages. Have some free time during the week when I'm not (!!!) going to doctors myself.

                Angela R, also sending prayers and wishes for healing your way.


                • Vitamins would be very helpful. I'd decline if it weren't as severe as it at least feels.

                  Honestly I broke down spiritually this week and went out on a limb to providing this information today.

                  It's like every friend I've made is an international or out of.state citizen at this point. Thank you very much for this peace offering hotaters
                  It is getting pretty late / early here too. 300am infact

                  HoTaters, thank you for your prayers, but I have very little pain, though did have for years, but with medication the stomach was healed, unfortunately the oesophagus was under attack far more than I realized.

                  I'm not in the situation that Tacoma is, we have Public Medical services and I also have contributed to a private medical fund which also covers dental.

                  My daughter encounters quite a number of struggling students and this past week she told me a very sad story about yet another one. However, her workplace rallied around and propped up the struggling spirit and he did not sink.

                  I am so sorry to hear of the poverty that exists in your country. I recall the US in a more affluent time.

                  However the Energy of Care, that dwells in the hearts of some, is the mirror of God. HoTaters, you have just provided an example by being the mirror.

                  • @Angela_R

                    It's very difficult to succeed here in America. As though the dream has become a nightmare. Poverty rates are rising exponentially. I live in a very difficult community. The majority of my.peers are portsmen. Or mariners to be more persicely spoken. Due to Tacoma being a labor community I feel only the higher wage class is moved on to a higher educationally standard and that the lower wage classes are drive to the trade service industries. Having a conversation about a flux dynamo would pepper me to a wall flower status amongst my peers.

                    I could ok only imagine the prospects of being born into a less lucrative community, yet due to our educational standards here in my city. My educational qualifications limit me from most of the higher waged careers that Seattle has to offer.
                    It's actually a tragic dilemma that I feel will implicate me from ever achieving any real accomplishments.

                    I'd consider working for area 51 in a food court, or dedicating my life to volunteering at nasa or seti. In respects to the latter of what I'm being offered here. As if a forklift certification, or general contractors license was stimulating enough to peek my interests.
                    It's a very almost sudden change that's escalating quite rapidly, as if the actual intent of our nation is to collapse upon itself. I sometimes consider that, that is the ulterior goal of our current administration.

                    Seeing the blm movements is an embarrassment. I feel Id have better prospects in…

                    • Off to bed my friends.

                      Special thanks to ho taters, praising truth, and Angela_R, for all your observations, support, and advice. As well as our missing friends tonight.

                      Many of whom to which I owe my life.
                      You know who you are!
                      Thank you all for basically adopting me:)
                      Seriously though, I'd be dead had this community never stepped in, and taken it's time to support this lost boy.

            Tarcoma, have you had an abscess in your gum? Sounds like it to me. If undiagnosed and untreated they can spread the infection. Antibiotics would have subdue the infection, but they not cure the problem. However it sounds like you have had an extraction and draining done. Only a dental specialist will know whether this has been successful.

            However, if this was connected with an abscess, it appears that the infection may have been caused some problems elsewhere.

      Keep everything dusted and clean walls and everything. Take vents frames out of the wall vent. Wear a filter mask when doing it. They say inside a house accumulates the dust. Dust w hot particles.

      Staying inside a dusty place no good.

      You probably clean more than I. More important than ever out west.

      • unincredulous unincredulous

        It would be interesting to find a home on west coast that has not changed filters in five years and get a Geiger counter in there.

        Some people don't know to change filters.

      Tacomagroove, gum infection, strep, staph, including mrsa, pseudomonas and pneumonia are destroyed rapidly by an indian herb called heritaki (Terminalia Chebula)
      see numerous articles from this google search.

      i have read that the herb disables several genes in the different bacteria. all i know is i have bad teeth myself and mixing the herb with water or 40% alcohol and let it soak a while to extract from the powder (i dont separate the powder from the alcohol) i hold either the water or the alcohol mixure in my mouth and get it all around my gums and UNDER MY TONGUE and the reason i do that is that whatever it is seems to absorb through that vein like nitro does, it goes to the heart and is distributed to the rest of the body…i do that as long as i can….then i swallow it now that will be absorbed too but it goes to the liver first then the rest of the body…that makes a difference. i have watched this get rid of bronchitis in about 4 hours…gone. i swear i can feel the biofilm break up within minutes. done that with numerous people. i had lost a half a lung to pseudomoas and as i was recovering i meticulously looked for an herb to kill it, i found haritaki. another herb is called Triphala which is a mix of haritaki and 2 other herbs. it all tastes bitter, sour and is VERY astringent. buy online about…

    I only wonder what the graphs and charts would look like after exposure, bioaccumulation, and biomagnification, for 1829 days…

      "Paul Gallay and Michael Shank make a strong case for the immediate retirement of the Indian Point nuclear power plant. In addition to the recent major malfunctions the plant has suffered, the continuing ecological effects the plant’s antiquated cooling water intake system has on the Hudson River estuary and the high radiation levels observed in groundwater testing, the aging facility poses a threat to the regional food shed.

      That threat comes in the form of land contamination from a large radioactive release, a factor that Victor Gilinsky, a former member of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, said should be carefully considered during the license renewal proceedings."

  • SadieDog

    Yes, they really said this.
    "LONDON – The costs of evacuating residents from near the Fukushima No. 1 plant and the dislocation the people experienced were greater than their expected gain in longevity, a British study has found.

    The researchers found that at best evacuees could expect to live eight months longer, but that some might gain only one extra day of life. They said this does not warrant ripping people from their homes and communities."

    • tinfoilhatbrian tinfoilhatbrian

      I imagine the costs they were concerned about from relocating people were lost tax dollars! What about Tokyo, the US west coast? Lots of lost money! Another friend of mine a young woman living in L.A. with advanced cancer. The motivating factor to not warn people is money. Lost tax dollars, lost commerce, lost business. Like they care about future tax dollars! Get all you can now to hell with the future seems to be the norm. This is terrible.

        The effort consumed in avoiding a lethal snakebite is usually just a waste of time. If you are so afraid as to jump back at the sight of a poisonous snake, you probably would have died the next day anyway. The proper way to react to a sudden infestation of rattlesnakes, for example, is to tune in to Obama. Do not take any precautionary action. But keep informed. Hack Hillarary's email. </end_Sarc>

    I am very honored to have had the opportunity to have shared this forum with the users here today.

    I've been quite anxious and almost manic lately. It's hard to participate like I used to because my health is slipping.

      Now on to craziness in the last 2 days. Blame it on high winds, here too, and geomagnetic storms. Hell, I was posting on how to live in a solar peered van! Now that's funny.

      I'm relatively healthy other than injuries. I have been avoiding rain etc. since Fukushima blew up. The last couple times I worked hard in above freezing very damp and humid cold air from melting snow (while shoveling it) I got very sick, first time only lung and energy issues. The last time I got a terrible sore throat with an abscess. I felt like I was done for. My doctor gave me antibiotics (which I rarely take) and I recovered after a week. Never in my life have I had any issues like this shoveling for hours on end. Mind you the work I did recently wasn't more than a half hour of work. I am in Chicago. I think not only rain but precipitation generated humidity especially melting snow should be avoided if possible. Fog and misty rain ditto.


    Spelling errors..Solar powered. Redon? Now turning off "auto-correct".

    mon ami, +1000 for your comment about scientific american.

    there was a time, long, long ago, when i used to believe that what i read in newspapers and ''quality'' journals was, if not the truth, at least a reasonable approximation, a best effort, given the limitations of time and the accumulated knowledge and intellect of the journalist.

    that was then.

    Fukushima: A Nuclear War without a War
    The Unspoken Crisis of Worldwide Nuclear Radiation
    Michel Chossudovsky (Editor)

    The crisis in Japan has been described as “a nuclear war without a war”. In the words of renowned novelist Haruki Murakami:

    “This time no one dropped a bomb on us … We set the stage, we committed the crime with our own hands, we are destroying our own lands, and we are destroying our own lives.”

    "The public health disaster in Japan, the contamination of water, agricultural land and the food chain, not to mention the broader economic and social implications, have neither been fully acknowledged nor addressed in a comprehensive and meaningful fashion by the Japanese authorities."

    "A tea distributor in Tokyo reported to the prefecture that it detected high levels of radioactivity in the tea shipped from the city. The prefecture ordered the factory to refrain from shipping out the product. After the accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, radioactive contamination of tea leaves and processed tea has been found over a wide area around Tokyo."

    One of my inquires: I have read your advertisement in the past that your tea is sourced from India and China. Does Yogi Tea source tea from Japan,and if so,are any measures taken to test the tea for radiation contamination?

    So far,no replies.

    "Tokyo Soil Cesium Radiation Nearly Twice Chernobyl Dead Zone Limit – 919,100 Bq/Sq Meter Detected"

    "Radiation soil tests from 150 sites in the Tokyo metropolitan area finds Cesium radiation up to levels limits nearly twice the Chernobyl dead zone evacuation limit of 500,000 Bq/Sq meter."

    Very High. Ongoing. Saddening.

    Have you tried going to Bates vocational dental program for exam?
    They do lots of work for low/no income. At least they use to.
    Going to the ER is great except they are not dentists.
    When you are talking about open holes receding gums now showing bone you need more help than home remedies. And yes I know from where I speak, 34 years in taking care of disabled veterans and indigent.
    If Bates cannot assist start calling local dentists to find
    free clinics. Self diagnosing is a sure way to miss a problem.

    Hello all, I just wanted to say that the evidence supporting the deadly levels of long lived fallout from the more than half a century of nuclear stupidity is all around us and I just got skooled by a new but not entirely unexpected means of yet another potentially deadly pathway to poisoning that I hope is taken into consideration by anyone else who has been having exterior home repairs and maintenance performed as the Spring weather arrives (?)!!
    The landlord here had a roofing company show up here without advance warning yesterday morning and even though I managed to avoid being taken out by the 4 layers of old roofing material they were tearing off and throwing down into the yard and both walkways nobody inside escaped from what was released during the ongoing project! My Geiger counter limit of detection was exceeded at over one million CPK just from the small pieces of roofing material that landed on the window AC unit six feet away from the end table the Geiger counter unit sits on!! The fine layer of dust that made it indoors is equally "hot" and the end result will undoubtedly have dire consequences for my family and the other unlucky tenants who will have to pay the ultimate price for this new roof in the near future thanks to yet another mode of releases, transport and ingestion/internal contamination! 🙁 Can't escape the radioactive reality,it always finds you!

    "There were news reports in early 2017 about dangerous amounts of radiation found at Fukushima. Wouldn’t that reach us in the United States?

    On February 3, 2017, Japanese news outlets (Japan Times in English) reported that extremely high radiation levels were found inside a containment vessel of one of the nuclear reactors. These extremely high levels of radiation are caused by the damaged fuel inside the vessel and remains confined to the vessel. Although this complicates cleanup at the nuclear power plant, high levels of radiation have not been seen in the environment.
    There have also been reports of radiation in groundwater that continues to be dumped into Japanese waters. When will that contaminated water reach Washington beaches?

    We know that radiation-contaminated water in Fukushima continues to enter the Pacific Ocean from groundwater flowing into the basements of the damaged reactors and turbine buildings.[…]"

    radiation-contaminated water is going into the OCEAN, not the ENVIRONMENT. Glad we got that straightened out.
