Many at Fukushima “now have brain damage” — Worker develops 3 types of cancer in a year — Secret hospital used to treat those sickened by radiation exposure — Doctor: “People cried… Can we survive?”

Published: March 3rd, 2017 at 1:15 pm ET


Kyodo News, Mar 1, 2017 (emphasis added): A former worker at the site of the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster filed a lawsuit Tuesday with the Sapporo District Court seeking labor compensation from the state for his subsequent development of three types of cancer… The man was diagnosed with bladder, stomach and colon cancers between June 2012 and May 2013 after taking part in work to clear debris with heavy machinery at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex… and was exposed to 56.41 millisieverts of radiation in total, according to his written complaint. His application for labor compensation filed at a labor standards supervision office in Fukushima Prefecture was rejected in August 2013. He repeatedly filed requests for re-examination of his application but they were also rejected… But his legal team said, “It’s rare for a person to develop three types of cancer at almost the same time“…

Al Jazeera, Aug 29, 2016: Fukushima’s surfers riding on radioactive waves… An employee of the nuclear plant said that he would never swim here as the water is too contaminated. Five of his friends who work at the plant now have brain damage.

Phoenix New Times, Oct 27, 2016: On my last day in Japan, I met with disaster medicine expert Dr. Atsushi Kumagai in a small conference room in the Fukushima University Hospital, about 52 miles from the Fukushima-Daiichi power plant… Two days after the accident at Fukushima, he, along with two nurses, a radiation technician, and a radiation biologist boarded an army helicopter and flew to Fukushima University Hospital… they managed to set up a temporary and secluded hospital-within-a-hospital at FMU. No one there knew how to handle radiation exposure, which meant that Kumagai and his staff had to train the FMU employees and treat sick people at the same time. For days, the staff worked long hours, taking a few hours at night to sleep on the floor in an empty part of the building. “Every night, we had deep discussions about how to think about this all. We talked about our feelings and anxieties, about the meaning of life, and ‘can we survive?’ “We had such deep conversations, and people cried,” Kumagai says, placing his hands over his heart. “Before the accident, frankly speaking, nobody was concerned about nuclear power… It is a big problem that nobody cared… No one really understood the risk or how to measure or think about the risk,” he says.

    • A lie is being perpetrated on the Internet that no significant radiation related fatalities have resulted from the ongoing Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe. Anyone using any semblance of logic will know that this is fantasy! The evidence is overwhelming and clear, that large numbers of people have died, and more will die in the future as a result of this ongoing nuclear catastrophe!

      Hello all, I am sort of new to the site. I wish I would have been following for the last 6 years, but I am here an alert to the situation now. After reading through lots of articles, comments and opinions, this situation is horifying, terrifying, angering about any other bad thing I can think of. Some questions/thoughts for the group…
      1. What can any of us do to protect ourselves? I am in the midwest US and I haven't been eating anything from the Pacific, but if the radiation is basically floating around in the air, it will eventually be everywhere and unavoidable in all food and water correct?
      2. It is obvious that this story is being buried and underplayed by the powers that be because I think it would create a panic. On that note, is it really that dire that nothing can be done to prevent everyone from getting cancer eventually? I mean I don't see our president and high up people hiding out underground (who would clearly have much more info than us lowly plebes), there are plenty of "rich" people that would likely be "in the know" who are still living on the west coast likely eating sushi etc.
      3. I realize that they have absolutely no clue how to deal with this issue at present time and are basically waiting on some sort of technology to be discovered to render the blob inert or something of the sort. So basically, the toxic water will spew into the Pacific likely for the rest of my lifetime eventually killing the entire ocean and spreading to other…

      • neptune-klm

        from above…spreading to other waterways. I am near the great lakes and I realize it would take quite some time to get around to the great lakes, but when it does then basically the entire fresh water will be contaminated and by then the gov't will just likely raise the "safe limit" for the radiation consumption (which there is NO safe limit).
        Like most people here, I am obviously worried for my young son and his life which I want to be long, healthy and happy. I certainly don't trust the gov't to tell me that there are radioactive chemicals in my food and water as I don't believe that they would ever be truthful about it. I am also under the belief that if something happens and this blob explodes, it will be game over for the northern hemisphere in the least-is that correct? I mean really, as I am writing this I really don't see what I can do to protect my family short of moving to an underground bunker in Antartica?? Thoughts???

          Welcome Neptune Kim. Great lakes area? Soon they will be bringing it to you.
          "Take a look at the plan from Ontario Power Generation for something called the "Deep Geologic Repository Project for Low and Intermediate Level Radioactive Waste." It's a plan to dig a 2,230-foot-deep repository for nuclear waste near the town of Kincardine, across from the tip of Michigan's thumb. That's roughly 60 miles from Harbor Beach. More importantly, however, it's about a half-mile from the Great Lakes, which just happen to be the source of drinking water for 44 million people. "

          • earthsmith earthsmith

            Hello and welcome neptune-klm, better late than never.
            Yes there is the planned repository by Canada plus there are several reactors on the US side of the lakes already dumping tritium laced water back in and whatever else cause that's how they roll..profit=no harm
            1: eat organic and or grow as much of your own food as possible, make and decontaminate your own soils. Quality supplements(vitamins minerals especially after detox, cleansing. Fermented foods
            2: There are underground facilities/towns don't underestimate. Obama told the citizens everything was ok while a massive radioactive plume rained down on the northern hemisphere as he, family and others went to the Southern Hemisphere for quite some time. Being rich doesn't make you smart or understand…what is rich anyway, not money for me. Trump is a fall guy, the bus is coming.
            3: They have clues and could have done more in the beginning to stem the continued releases. Like diverting the underground river, immediately start planning for some type of sarcophagus and not have made the insane claim that it was in COLD SHUTDOWN.
            Unit 3 did explode big time along with the others but in a different fashion…4 had a fire…massive initial fallout far and wide along with noble gases that dropped thousands maybe in tens of thousands of migrating birds and humans..whoops.
            Best of luck!
            There are others here with more knowledge that can do the details justice.

              Thanks for all the welcomes! I will likely spend my time here reading/lurking as opposed to posting, but who knows. I am near Davis-Besse on Lake Erie fyi, so I do have a KI supply. I am hearing that they are planning on permanently shutting it down (which sounds good to me!), but that will still leave the ones on the western side of the lake in MI to worry about (being up wind from me) and of course all the others in the world. While I am certainly not a nuclear scientist, I do have a chemistry degree so I am able to understand a lot of this nonsense. Maybe that is why it's so horific to read about. It's just so troublesome to contemplate and I know there are plenty of people out there who would say there is nothing to worry about, but best to educate than bury your head in the sand until it's too late. I see it's hard for people to be scared about something they can't see, smell, taste or see the effects of for years to come but the danger is there none the less. I will prepare and hope for the best as I think it's about all we can do. Let's hope some brilliant minds can figure something out sooner than later!

          Neptune, if you look at quantity of radiation, the bomb test era was a larger event than Fukushima. The European Committee on Radiation Risk estimates that sixty million people died from the testing of nuclear bombs. The same organization has a much lower estimate for the projected numbers of deaths from Fukushima. A recent study on the environment indicates that the earth has lost half its animal life in 40 years. From this we can see the world was already in a vicious downward spiral even before Fukushima, which adds in known and unknown ways to the tragedy unfolding. We all have the tendency to wonder how bad it is in our vicinity and in our lives. The situation however is global. With autism set to reach nearly every newborn in 20 or 30 years at current rates, it is easy to see that future generations wont have the capability to deal with nuclear reactors at all with the consequence of global extinction. The reason that the rich, the scientists and the public are not concerned is because science is operating on a failed model of nuclear fallout toxicity. The main of scientists firmly believe that radiation levels are way too low to be of any consequence. The people naturally believe them.

          • neptune-klm

            Code, I agree with your sentiments and that it is certainly a global issue. It appears that current population does not know how to deal with nuclear reactors let alone future generations who are appearing to become more concerned with Hollywood than issues of importance lol. As for the "projections" of the death numbers, I don't have a lot of faith in those projections, meaning I would bet it to be higher. Projections like that can be quite complex even to the point that we don't really understand it all as to wind, currents and the natural changes that the earth goes through over time. The range of data for such things is a quite small sample in the grand scheme of things. So yes, to your point I would say their methods are outdated. And there isn't a safe level of radiation to breath/ingest etc as far as I am concerned. Besides the natural background radiation, I don't want anymore than I can help being exposed to!

            • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

              nuptune…to be clear, the ECRR is not considered mainstream science by mainstream science. The estimates of deaths by mainstream science is near zero. Rosalie Bertell made an estimate from all nuclear activity and arrived at around a billion. We know that it isnt too much more than that because of the global population trends. Not everything dies at once, and as you say, the ecosphere is much too complicated to model it accurately

        welcome N-K not sure you got your question about what can I do answered. Truth is there is not much. This is a great group of fine folks though many of those from 6 years back are now gone. About the best anyone can do right now is live every moment you have. Love your children, family and spouse with every ounce of strength you have. Appreciate every moment you get to spend with them. Stay out of the rain and snow. Carefully watch the foods you eat. Take at least a teaspoon of baking soda a day, take blue green algae, lots of vit D. Sure the group will chime in on other counter-measures. I have found jojobu oil to help with pesky skin spots, though some say olive oil works as well. Here on the oregon coast it is almost impossible to stay out of the rain and we get a lot of hot rain. Opinion only not advice – Peace

  • RonM RonM

    The ocean can only dilute the radiation pouring into it up to the point that it diffuses into nonradioactive water which there isn't especially after all the nuke testing and dumping of the previous 7 decades, what is called dilution is actually concentration its only dilution for the highly contaminated water that is being released or that which flows cannot be stopped. I read here, (ENENEWS articles) 2 isotopes will peak at approx 5,000 days and 10,000 days, I also read here that the new Fukushima radiation will basically become diffuse throughout the Pacific Ocean in approx 10 years, so after ten years the radiation will no longer be diluted by the ocean but will begin concentrating (even if the concentrations are at small pars per million or billion or whatever the levels are still dangerous),
    meanwhile I have also read here that the probability of a serious earthquake in the Fukushima region over 10 years is 100% and the main storage pools and others at the site which are structurally weaker than before the 3/11 disaster might drain and catch fire spreading more radioactive contamination around the globe and into the oceans.
    Also from articles here I read that the triple meltdown at Fukushima has lowered the frequency probability of a major nuke accident to about 1 every 7 years.

    Anyhow does all this sound about right to all you ENENEWSers ?

    If it is it seems that some really disastrous things are coming soon in the next 1-4 years.

    I guess we gotta keep…

    • papacares papacares

      @RonM – myth of the ages is dilution is the solution to pollution. When it comes to rad there is no such thing as dilution – please everyone at ene this is the problem we face. the uneducated think rads dilute. these last 6 years has been one head butt after another with well meaning unlearned good-hearted people who just cannot understand rad. it was sold to them as being safe, clean and cheap. perhaps when they can understand the negatives then they will wake up, however history does not speak favorably on people waking up before a crisis. here in oregon if you mention this ongoing 3/11 FDNPGS world wide crises to OEM (oregon emergency management) they laugh and roll their eyes like who is this nut job. i have talked to Dr's on the coast and can see the panic in their eyes when one mentions the possibility of a rad/nuke event. also have talked with fishermen who say they hate me for trying to destroy their industry due to the rad toxicity of Pac seafood. what reminds me of the day i talked to a young father letting his baby play in raw sewage from a spill of the city outfall tank. this father accosted me and became enraged over my concern. when i pointed to the danger sign stating "danger – raw sewage outfall" this man said "who cares". real problem, few people understand reality. if not instant not relevant. life saver info is good but few will take time to read it. Notice how fast Sen Wyden dropped the issue

    • BanReactorsForever BanReactorsForever

      The 5,000 and 10,000 day peaks for Cesium and Strontium respectively assume that fission stopped immediately after the meltdown event supposed by the German study in question here. Since we have evidence that fission has not stopped at Fukushima (iodine 131 levels) we cannot assume that there will be a predictable "peak" of radioactive cesium, strontium and all other fission products like iodine and plutonium. The situation looks more like a sustained highly elevated plateaued level of radioactive emissions flowing and blowing out of Fuku. 530 Seiverts?!? Specialized robots designed to survive radiation cannot even last a couple hours to investigate where the melted fuels went to. Even if we could design, engineer and produce autonomous or remote controlled robots to clean up the rad fuels it would appear that the bots would perish in mere minutes or hours due to the incredible levels of radiation currently being observed at Fuku. Peak radiation levels could be 150 years from now for all we know. The German meltdown example is not applicable for Fuku, unfortunately. Nuclear is truly insane – criminally recklessly insane.

    • razzz razzz

      RonM: Would have been mostly correct except the disaster has yet to cease. No containment X3, leads to continued leaking of radioactivity and continues to add to radioactive fallout. Ocean and air dilution of radioactivity does not change the percentages of being effected, only spreads to more potential victims.

      A spent fuel pool fire would be worse than meltdowns or dropping a nuke bomb. Fuel rods become spent after undergoing so many years of fission inside a reactor that undesired radio-elements being created and building up interfere with neutrons bombardment rendering less fission reactions hence less possible heat creation as compared to new fresh (clean) fuel rods. Any spent fuel rod is chalked full of radioactive poisons needing centuries of safe storage.

      The longer fuel rods undergo fission, the more radioactive poisons will buildup (radioactive manmade creations). Even a small spent fuel pool would make a nuke bomb explosion look clean by comparison.

      Earthquakes are always a danger to nuclear reactor sites. Someone should advise the Japanese. They haven't got the memo yet.

      Various radioisotopes no longer existed on earth until man began fracturing uranium atoms. Caesium-137 and Strontium-90 for example could not be found on earth or maybe at best there was a handful plutonium. Now some of these manmade radioactive isotopes are measured in tons and still increasing.

  • laconic93 laconic93

    The dilution theory is a myth because the radiation is not distributed equally. The current carries the majority of the radiation to currents that hit Alaska and goes straight down the West Coast. Now you know why The feds declared a fishing disaster in all 4 states.

  • BanReactorsForever BanReactorsForever

    The nukers and their sockpuppet shills in academia and media NEVER will mention bioaccumulation of radiation. The two verboten words of the nuker shills;

    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

      In my humble opinion, bioaccumulation does not account fully for the devastating effects of low level nuclear fallout. The full story has not been uncovered, the science is not finished. Point source is a key issue. Point source of hot particles, of atoms and molecules…the specific activity aspect…point source of Busby's heavy metal DNA micro antenna that weaponizes background radiation and funnels it into your master molecule, the mysteries of which are still being unraveled. One thing is for sure; becquerel counting does not tell the story. Mans nuclear fallout does not belong on earths living symphony. A discordant poison chemically, vibrationally, ionically

  • RonM RonM

    Concerning the Dilution, Diffusion , and Concentration I was trying to clarify but I guess I also touched on too many points and it was confusing I will try an example and I do not want it to be confused with bio-accumulation which increases the radioactivity as it moves up the food chain but that also will get worse and worse and concentrating levels are reached.

    Say you have a bathtub full of water and you add a drop of red dye to it every ten minutes at the same point say near the faucet it will dilute (not trying to say diluted amounts of radiation aren't deadly just trying to illustrate the dire situation) after however many drops maybe 100 or 500 drops eventually the red dye will become diffuse and there will be no more areas untouched by the red dye, thereafter the red dye is no longer diluting in the tub but concentrating and getting a little darker with every drop.

    There are you tube videos showing the radioactivity from Fukushima spreading throughout the Pacific Ocean and it projects that the pacific becomes completely diffused with radiation after about 10 years. After that the radiation continues pouring into the Pacific and the radiation no longer is diluting but concentrating.

    With the radioactivity possibly pouring into the pacific oceans for decades maybe centuries, at what point does the entire ocean die?

    meanwhile the Pacific is connected to the rest of the worlds oceans so they all will eventually become radioactive and nowhere will be…

    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

      Ron, I get the idea that continual addition is a concentration not a dilution. But you know the ocean was already filled with twelve thousand becquerels per cubic meter before man hit the scene right? The largest releases from Fukushima were at the beginning. Unless another disaster happens there…quite likely with the fuel pools and stuff by the way, the big whammy has whomped us. There is ongoing release…not good at all, a disaster even without the first four explosive nightmare nuclear catastrophe, but its not quite the right way to look at it for the time being. Some radionuclides have decayed to others and in time, if the place was truly decommissioned, things might possibly get better. This was seen for example when the wave of rads from Chernobyl wiped out U.S. bird populations. The krill is filtering the sea, bringing radioactivity to the bottom. The actual becquerel figure to anticipate is probably not more than twenty bq/m3 of cesium in the ocean. The black sea got up to sixty I think, from Chernobyl. To put the difficulty of becquerel thinking into perspective, you have five times as much natural radiation in your cells as the ocean, which would equate to about sixty or seventy thousand becquerels per cubic meter. So, as weve seen, becquerel counting can be very misleading. This is the problem when confronting an 'educated' public and the end of discussion when talking to a scientist. Simply stated, they got this one wrong.

    • AirSepTech AirSepTech

      I like the bathtub/dye, specifically for the solubles/Caesium and Tritium diffusing.

      I've also had good understanding with particles and 'dispersion', which is very different concept. Easy to 'visualize' for the newcomers.

      Same bathtub or pool, but throw in a handful of tacks. Keep adding to it, and no area is safe. You can have safe paths or areas that are clear, but more is more, it never 'dilutes', there is always risk, and it only gets worse.

      When you shift that idea into suspension in water or air, the reaction people have is,,, 'interesting'.

      RonM, if you are thinking of spreading the word about Fukushima, consider the first rule of thumb about engagement; you never convince anybody about anything. Once past that little hump, the second rule of thumb is that one doesnt know much about what one is talking about and your audience may know a lot more. Small setbacks for sure. Next, consider that the more you try to be convincing, the more they will be convinced you are wrong or off your rocker. This may well affect the tone of your relationship for years to come. Ive come to realize its no big loss. The next rule of engagement is the inevitable denial. Even after you painstakingly prove your point and they agree and everything, there will be a momentary pause and then they will look you right in the face and say Fukushima is the least of our concerns and you could die just walking out your front door from an asteroid or something. Now heres a novel problem Ive encountered myself; They die of cancer before you are done with your pitch. Somewhat related…theres nothing like trying to convince a room full of deformed and retarded people that we should be careful about radiation lest we lose some IQ points and our children get a birth defect. Sure they may be oceanographers and nuclear engineers, but the tension is still palpable

                      I posted there speaking out against nuclear radiation, I mentioned this in the other thread to, but they deleted my (and not just) comments repeatedly. Eventually I decided to delete my account. Many of my replies there did link to ENEnews (the ones marked as deleted, but also comments without replies you cannot see).

                      Ontological used to be a poster here, right? DecksUpMySleeve posts quite simarly in that thread…who knows?

                      Anyway, you can think of me what you will.

                      I'm not necessarily trying to align with ontological, yes, he was brilliant and I mentioned anothered person with similar traits speaking out against nuclear radiation on another site having similar brilliance.

                      Yeah I'm a piece of shit. What do you want me to say? I can't even respect someone call brilliant?

                      Thanks Obewan, I do recall reading a few posts from him about that (my memory is a bit iffy though), I'm not exactly in great physical health either. Though I haven't seen a "doctor" in many years, last time I visited one, he prescribed crap with contraindications to my conditions, not exactly surprising.

                      The cancer racketeering (which the nuke industry conspires with) really makes me angry. I've had a few family members afflicted/and or die of cancers…

                      Im not a crusader first of all farthington that's for zealots. I have paroused other sites but originally found this place most informative and direct. I've been protesting nuclear since my mom had a nervous breakdown from TMI her brothers knew. I might not be the sharpest knife in the draw but I know. I speak to people I meet face to face thanks mostly to what I have learned from posters on this site. It's a simple recipe, why mess with what is working. I can see why that wouldn't work for you though. Maybe you should stop speaking to yourself, though I guess that's what crusaders do.

                    So Earthsmith, how would you know that I haven't told people, personally, about the dangers of nuclear radiation, power plants, fukushima, etc, either?

                    Hey, I even personally spoke to one of the council members of our national sustainable fisheries (or something like that) about it a year or two ago.

                    I daily mention this stuff to some of my family, though I no longer consider some of them, as a result of their physical an spiritual abuse.

                  • FaunaLord Farthington MacMananus

                    Also, having perused other sites, and posted and them and repeatedly speaking out against radiation. Yes, ENEnews has some good information, but sometimes, you know, speaking here is preaching to the choir, so to say.

                    Do you understand that consensus considers ENEnews mostly irrelevant, right?

                    So, what's so wrong about actually informing people, elsewhere?

                    They'll probably ban and delete your comments too.

                    • earthsmith earthsmith

                      They have done that but it's expected on MSM sites, nothing new. I never said you didn't speak to other people. They also consider Fukushima irrelevant, so.
                      Preaching to the choir…eh stop speaking, you know put a sock in it.
                      I truly wish you well, but I'm a sucker that way..always try to give the benefit of the doubt. People take advantage of it. Your not the only that knows abuse physical or otherwise, but I will stop now there are folks who want to talk about what's relevant not this and that from me or you.

            Obe, it looks like mutagenic damage. Did you see mention of the dogs' owners being backyard breeders? Picasso is likely from a puppy mill.

            Breeders will say lots of things go wrong with Bad breeding. All kinds of genetic problems surface. Yes, it looks like mutagenic damage. Radiation will cause animals to have horribly mutated faces.

            it is possible there was some extreme breeding going on, esp. on the bully breed side.


            One wouldn't expect this kind of mutation in a mixed-breed dog.

            Exposing mom-dog to environmental toxins when puppies are in uterio can cause deformities. Radiation isn't the only known culprit.

            Did humans use Glyphosphate when pups were in utero? Remember pics shared here of horribly mutated animals in Argentina, damaged by Glyphosphate? Unless a veterinary expert, it's hard to pin down causation. MANY different types of genetic damage are possible.

            Merck Veterinary manual on facial deformities in animals:

            "Bone diseases are generally congenital or hereditary, nutritional, or traumatic."


            Some of your prior links where you point out mutagenic damage show pics of humans/animals with damage from non-radiation causes.

            Please let's tighten up our arguments so people don't think we're kooky.

          • HoTaters HoTaters

            If it looks like a duck, obe, quacks and walks like a duck, it's not necessarily a duck when mutagenic damage is discussed. Didn't see that you specifically said radiation caused the mutagenic damage.

            And you said comment re: discussion on the various things causing damage to living creatures are welcome here. (In fairness.)

            IMO we should differentiate between radiation-induced mutagenic damage & non-radiation induced damage, when possible.

            This comment isn't directed at you specifically. I have noticed you infer radiation is a culprit in mutagenic damage. Personally I wouldn't link to pics where damage from other causes is lumped together with Glyphosphate damage & other genetic disorders.

            Agreed, it's very important people see how radiation from Fukushima, Chernobyl, Semipalatinsk, Fallujah and DU cause horrific mutagenic damage.

            Our critics are very quick to point out instances where there are other causes. They call us fear mongers & probably worse things.

            This is more of a general comment on discusssions here. We've mentioned several times over the years we need to try to maintain credibility in the face of critics, deniers, and detractors.

            Haven't read the Macmanus comments, & this is not in reference to that whole discussion.

            Thanks for hearing me out. And yes, there are a lot of human-related activities and poisons imperiling all life on earth. Glad you speak out on that, obe, and thank you. Respectfully, HT

    Air. Purpose of sulfuric acid in NPPs? RE: Cook County NPP gasket leaked 1,000 gals into containment vessel. RSOE

    "Cleanup of a leak at the Cook Nuclear Plant is going on right now. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission reports more than 1,000 gallons of sulfuric acid leaked into a containment area. The agency says no acid made it into the environment or nearby drains. Staff found the leak yesterday." (Fri.)

    I missed this in our discussions. What is the role of sulfuric acid in nuclear power plants?

    Four years ago, I began warning of pinhole and weld leaks, and breach of all rubber wiring, insulation (and exploding/burning switchyards, transformers and control panals) and gaskets throughout due to water and airborne absorbtion of corrosive gases, i.e., H2S, which eats through metal, rubber, wood, paper, concrete, etc.

    Why again is sulfuric acid present near containment? Anyone?

    • or-well

      RE: sulfuric acid at NPPs –

      possibly this –

      "A power station requires a sufficient supply of sulfuric acid as part of the water treatment regimen for the cooling
      towers. If the sulfuric acid supply is inadequate, fouling of the cooling system is possible."

      • or-well

        AH! DC Cook NPP uses an ice condenser containment system.
        So, they handle water that needs treatment.
        These systems can be googled.

        This explains it.

        "…they typically pump more than 500,000 gallons of water per minute through heat exchangers in their circulating water systems. These systems cool the plant’s condensers and they remove heat from the steam that exits the plant’s main turbine.

        Nuclear plants also have service water systems that are used to cool air compressors, lube oil systems and other systems related to the safe shutdown of the reactor. Without enormous quantities of water, nuclear power plants cannot operate. However, quantity alone is not all that matters – the quality of the water has a direct impact on the plant’s efficiency. That’s why all of the water used must be filtered and cleaned during use and before being discharged back into the environment.

        "…Once the water has entered the plant’s circulating system it must be cleaned via chemical feed processes in order to manage micro-bio organisms and to prevent scaling, corrosion and foulants from hindering the efficiency of the condenser."

        "…To clean the water, chemicals such as sulfuric acid and sodium hypochlorite solutions are metered via rotary gear pumps."

          Or-well. TY!

          From you link: To clean the water, chemicals such as sulfuric acid and sodium hypochlorite solutions are metered via rotary gear pumps. These applications feature exceedingly high flow rates and relatively low pressure…

          …"After the water is used it is discharged back into the environment, but before doing so, it is treated with a de-chlorination chemical, such as sodium meta-bisulfite. In cases where high dosing rates are required, the de-chlorination chemicals can be metered out by rotary gear pumps."

          The upside is clean water. What is the downside of gasket leaks of 1,000 gals. of sulfuric acid into the containment vessel? How would pure sulfuric acid react there?

          How many gaskets arrays of separation are there fro. the distance between water intake and acid influx and that mixtures' distance from pure acid to the containment vessel? Also, no mix ratio of acid/water is given.

          There is dechlorination of the released water back into the environment, but what removes the sulferic acid, or is the concentration acceptable, even considering accumulation? What does this contribute to anaerobic waters' production of H2S by opportunistic bacteria that thrive in that enviornment?

          …I'm curious if these gaskets are repeatedly vulnerable to corrosion, and moreso in years to come IMO… 1) For the effect on the containment chamber … And 2) Just in general, for the environmental effect of water release on acidification.

          • or-well

            Irho, I found no story saying it leaked into the containment vessel.
            Each story I read (about 2 dozen) said it leaked from a tank of acid into the berm designed to contain such a leak should it occur.
            Believe it or not.
            Frankly, I think the ice condenser containment system warrants a lot more worry, because, to put it most simply – it's shit.

              And my other questions?

              • or-well

                Irho – "a containment area" is not the same as the containment vessel – an area for containing leaks from the storage tank, the area being large enough to contain the entire contents of the tank, which is more than was in the tank at the time of the leak and more than leaked.

                Believe what you want, as you usually do.

                Why not read the many stories about it that are all over the internet and even try and answer your questions yourself?

                  I'm trying to learn about the effects of sulfuric acid on NPPs and the environment. The questions I asked about its discharge aren't in the stories.

                  Anyone other than Or-well, please. Can you please not hold wanting to know how things work against me and tell me the approximate size of a containment area is in relationship to the containment vessel, how big a containment vessel is inside it, and how far the separation of 1,000 gals. of sulfuric acid in the containment area is from the containment vessel? When we're discussing Fukushima, the containment area is the size of a very large room…? Is this correct?

                  I'd rather not be insulted by anyone responding…and would prefer an attempt to understand the effects of sulfuric acid on containment and when released in affluent, on the emvironment,

                    It is practically distilled water being used during the operation of a nuke plant. At least that is what they strive for all and all its known properties in that state (pure). Filtering, treatment and testing to maintain a pure water state is a known in industries whether it's a primary objective or a secondary process.

                    Of course in a nuke plant, water will never be pure. Solid particles settle out over time in nooks and crannies. Wear and tear is always adding impurities like seals and metal slowly eroding.

                    What it really takes is time and money which the nuke industry skimps on especially when it comes to maintenance. Seems any NRC fines for enforcement are only a cost of doing business and not punitive enough to encourage compliance. As if nuke leaks or fallout is tolerable.

                    I think money is more the issue than if they are operating safely and know how to maintain equipment properly. They do know how to maintain a nuke plant but they don't due to money concerns.

    Radiative damage to brain tissue often is seen as swelling.

    A spectrum of changes was observed ranging from white matter edema to extensive white matter necrosis, and the extent, location, and type of damage were dependent upon radiation dose.

    Radiation can induce small head size as well as mental retardation, and a review of the relationship between small head size and anthropometric measurements, such as height, weight, sitting height and chest circumference, shows that individuals with small head size have smaller anthropometric measurements than

    Brain scan overdose offers glimpse of radiation threat

    A wave of nausea washed over Marcie Iseli shortly after her CT scan finished. Then her head started to feel strange, as if heat was emanating from somewhere deep inside. Her face started to feel uncomfortably warm, like she’d been sunburned.

    Within minutes, Iseli became a victim of radiation poisoning, with some of the same symptoms and possible long-term effects that may face workers now exposed to high levels of radiation at Japan’s ailing Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

      Incubation period for (solid) cancers to develop after being exposed to radioactive fallout is 5 to 70 years. With growing kids a bit sooner because their cells are still actively dividing and any mutations show up sooner.

      Women are often the most concerned about social health, and are the first and most vociferous in protecting public health following a nuclear catastrophe. And science shows they should be. Women and children are more vulnerable to radiation’s impacts and the life-stage of pregnancy is uniquely sensitive. They pay the highest price for nuclear power and it releases, so their voices should count for more, both in the energy decisions we currently face and in how we protect those whose lives are upturned by nuclear catastrophes.."

    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

      the problem I have with that peak radiation level is that it depends on how close one is to the source. In other words, it is not an indicator of the magnitude of any of the disasters, its not a comparative standard at all. An example makes this clear; there were three rock concerts. Three different teams made measurements of sound pressure level. Team A took measurements at one mile, team B at fifty yards and Team C one inch from the speakers. By comparing the readings, it was found that the third rock concert, measured by team C was far louder than the other two

      • curly

        Here you say it's distance and not magnitude. Do I have that right? Did the team a mile away still hear the music and were they motivated to dance, like the teams at fifty yards and one inch?

        • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

          curly, to be clear, the magnitude of the measurement depends on the distance, and there is no standard distance given in the comparison of the three events in the AGR article. Thus its an entirely invalid way to compare the disasters.

  • With so many bomb tests conducted by various military forces I'm sure there is plenty of secret info regarding fall-out plume patterns. Measuring radiation is complicated. only military and government have the monetary resources to invest in equipment and man power to produce comprehensive results. They tell us what they have to but no-one tells the whole story. Up here in Vancouver Canada, I met a young man years ago who was missing a limb due to cancer. He told me that a doctor told him "off the record" that why he got severe cancer so young was most likely due to a "chunk of radio-active material from an Atom bomb test"
    but "I can't tell you that officially".

    Since military info kept top secret we are left only with unsubstantiated stories and conjecture. The word on the street is radiation does not dissipate like food dye in a milkshake but is more like broken pieces of styro-foam in a river.

    Numbers of radiation exposure like seiverts per hour are hard to wrap mind around as we have no practical experience of, unlike say miles per hour.
    However the picture of a hospital bed containing a lingering death, or even a personable good looking young man missing a leg is another way of seeing the consequence of allowing radiation and other pollutants to be an acceptable cost of doing business.

  • I suggest following unbeatable argumentative three-step procedure against Fukushima-Denialists:

    1. Claim that Everything that is not proven impossible is possible, whereas it is not true that everything that isn’t proven possible is impossible.
    2. Out of two possible events whose probability you cannot otherwise determine, it is always rational to assume the worst case scenario. Assuming you’re wrong while you predicted the bad outcome, nothing terrible is going to happen (except for your prediction to fail). But assuming you’re wrong while you predicted the good outcome makes you unprepared for a horrible situation.
    3. Everything you believe will become true (this is due to Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle.)

    However, this argumentative trick only works if you believe in deontological ethics, that is, you valorize truth as such and actions for what they are. If you believe in consequentialism, you only want to hear positively useful information from the start. And because of Heisenbergs principle, you would of course turn your attention away from bad news, since they are self-fulfilling prophecies. If you believe in ethical nihilism, you might or might not be convinced by the argument, depending on the situative context. Paradoxically, I've come to the conclusion that marxist materialist nihilism vindicates the Second Law of Thermodynamics. And if the Second Law of Thermodynamics holds true, we're all fucked in the long run, no matter what we do.

    What do you…

      Taking a page from the nuclear playbook there: " Claim that Everything that is not proven impossible is possible, whereas it is not true that everything that isn’t proven possible is impossible."

      The double negative sounds just like their strategy. Confound the audience.

      Ex: "Nuclear is clean and green and safe and too cheap to meter, but the technology to fix our melted reactors does not yet exist, and we need to raise electric rates and more subsidies. It is so unreasonable for people to question the safety of our food and our passion to restart reactors! We are afraid that alternative energy will not supply enough power to develop the future technology to fix our little boo. Whaaaa (sob)
