NBC News, Feb. 17, 2014: ‘Bizarre’ Cluster of Severe Birth Defects Haunts Health Experts — A mysterious cluster of severe birth defects in rural Washington state [and] reports of new cases continue to climb. Federal and state officials won’t say how many women in a three-county area near Yakima, Wash., have had babies with anencephaly, a heart-breaking condition in which they’re born missing parts of the brain or skull. And they admit they haven’t interviewed any of the women in question, or told the mothers there’s a potentially widespread problem. [...] nearly two dozen cases in three years, a rate four times the national average [...] Susie Ball of the Central Washington Genetics Program at Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital, says she has reported “eight or nine” additional cases of anencephaly and spina bifida [...] The agencies released a report last summer detailing an investigation of 27 women with pregnancies that resulted in neural tube defects in Yakima, Franklin and Benton counties between 2010 and 2013. [...] Health officials originally were alerted to the problem by a nurse, Sara Barron, 58 [...] A 30-year nursing veteran, she’d seen perhaps one or two devastating cases of anencephaly in her wide-ranging career [then saw 2 in 6-month period of ~180 total births]. [...] At a regional medical meeting, there were more anecdotal reports. [...] CDC and state officials refused to tell NBC News how many new cases they’d received in 2013 [...]

Mandy Stahre, head of CDC inquiry: There were very few of us that could spend time doing this investigation [...] I’m not sure the women knew they were part of a cluster.”

CDC: “A clear cause of the elevated prevalence of anencephaly was not determined.”

Allison Ashley-Koch, professor at the Duke University Medical Center for Human Genetics: “Any time you see a geographic cluster of a pretty severe birth defect, it does make you wonder if there is a common exposure [...] really would be wonderful to [do] interviews regarding common environmental exposures [...] They may have eaten the same type of produce [...]“

Andrea Jackman, daughter has most severe form of spina bifida: “I had no idea [...] I honestly was really surprised that nobody had said anything. [...] There’s got to be something. I mean, something causes it [...] If you could find a way to stop this from happening, why wouldn’t you want to do that? Why would you not want to tell people?”

Sara Barron, Yakima-area nurse who discovered cluster: “30 deliveries a month and there’s two cases in a six-month period [...]  I was talking to another doctor about it and she has a third one coming. My teeth dropped. It was like, ‘Oh my God.’ [...] This is bizarre [...] This is a very, very small area [...] I definitely believe something is going on [...] There was something. Maybe it just hit once and blew through, God willing. If there are still cases going on, we need to know.”

NBC’s report failed to mention the cluster’s proximity to Hanford.

          the idea that Barack Obama is the problem here is exactly the diversion of attention the true culprits desire. The secrecy around Hanford goes back many decades. As a military site, Hanford is afforded a silence that is legally binding and completely enforceable, that includes presidents.

        The people responsible for this crap give Satan a bad name. To follow your line to a logical conclusion, if Satan exterminated us all, there wouldn't be any souls to reap.

        No, the nuclear rulers are worse than Satan – they're a parasite that is more than willing to kill the host. And so they have.

        In the literature I've read, Satan was at least a good businessman (well, from his point of view, anyway).

            Transmutation is a pipe dream. Dream on. Radiation can't be transmuted, can't be stopped, can't be cleaned up …

            They couldn't even scrub it off their metal ships in 1946.

            Sandblasting reduced the counts, but then the particles are everywhere.

            What a sorry excuse for science.

            Messing with Supernova slag (uranium) gives you toxic black dusts. Which bio-accumulate.

    This is an alarming story.

    Hanford is downstream from Yakima, so my uneducated guess is that Hanford is not the source.

    The Cascade Mountains, I understand, took a lot of rain from the Fukushima plume. The Yakima river's source is in the mountains. So, which isotope can cause birth defects like this? I have been unable to find out. Cs-137, Cs-134, I-131, and Sr-90 are the main ones, but we can rule out I-131 since it is too short lived.

    It is possible to prove this by measuring the concentrations of the above isotopes. Hopefully, an independent lab will do this and find something out.

    I find it odd that a veteran nurse is forced to report this while the rest of the professionals are silent.

    Work to prepare for cleaning up one of Hanford's most notorious burial grounds, 618-10, will be accelerated with money in the fiscal 2014 Hanford budget.

    Other plans call for speeding up work to remove some radioactively contaminated soil just north of Richland and continuing the momentum to complete demolition of the Plutonium Finishing Plant by a legal deadline of fall 2016, according to Matt McCormick, manager of the Department of Energy Richland Operations Office.

Honestly, I have no confidence in these clean ups, and they exploit millions of dollars that are very likely just going into more make believe "removal" and "vitrification" which has been discussed for several decades. There is no way to get rid of this stuff. Moving it around is a stupid game.

        The thinking behind this project is deeply frightening
        huge funding,has paved the way to the demise we're experiencing.
        Their attitude is literally, "adapt or die". Crude and Rude. Chemtrails,gmos, Radiation no problem. Its group insanity.
        They think its justified because of Moore's law,but they're taken way too far already. They are big brains in white coats – shit for brains,Dr.Strangloves all of em'.

        I have yet to hear of any organized group against this.
        Look at their plans. People the writing is on the wall. They will not be stopped. They will only be survived by very few. Probably no one.

        This is their plan. Its a contract on the human race !
        People that doubt they're purposely killing people off and culling sick as that sounds need to take a look at the group you linked to NBO. And they need to read Agenda 21. And they need to read the Patriot Act.

        The evil suppression of our demise is purposeful. It's not just simply for money.
        It's way more than that and its full spectrum.

          Profound birth defects are the reason truthers must rain on the Parade of Nuclear. It is not safe,not clean,not green and we never needed it for anything.

          The deadly horrific defects is why pregnancy will never the same. The world needs to get this memo.
          Its the reason some of us are the "buzz kill" at the party. ridic

          Reproduction will never be the same.
          There will need to be tests for everyone considering having children. The sooner the better.

          For this reason i will be the proverbial turd it the punch bowl.

          Too bad, the parents,the people need to know how Nuclear Waste is killing their DNA. The health care providers. Public health and Education has failed they are not speaking of it. (shame on them)

    Our ability to instantly connect electronically and internationally – this is both amazing and precious. Not so much is it precious because it's amazing, but more so it is precious because it is fragile. As of yet still it requires a centralized food-source, we cannot yet harvest our own food from the dimensions enveloping us. Notice of course by food-source here I'm talking about electricity, and the power grid. The sooner we can implement the very best and most ingenious technologies for harvesting and 'producing' electricity, the less we will be in danger of a) having to die by the misapplication of nuclear technologies, and b) being cut off at whim from this, our ability to KNOW OF and even DISCUSS the current unfoldments of the currently sad state of the misapplications of nuclear technology having gone, and which are in the process of going, awry. And all of this why?

    To generate currents, you see, in the end requiring FAR TOO MUCH of our invaluable human economy energy, that system representing cooperation utilizing at it's base-level those paper symbols called currency.

    Not just in the diversion of funds for tax-funded nuclear reactor construction projects are we being sucked dry of our energy, but also consider the opportunity costs of continuing to support the nuclear-technology mythology and how we are missing out on 'what could be' if it wasn't nuke war.

    The notion of "A mysterious cluster of severe birth defects…" shows how corrupted and propagandized our 'information system' has become. To use the word 'mysterious' in conjunction with a nuclear/military shithole is far beyond delusional. It is criminally insane to tell people that the movie theater is still fine – you don't need to do anything about it – it's only the top floor that is burning…

    So very sad that the human experience turned out to be an utter failure. Greed and power lust are making sure that homo sapiens disappears with a catastrophic bang. Did I mention to 'ƒuçk the military' world wide? We are in deep shit because of our totally unchecked militarism. World wide.

      Once there was a world with no war, it lasted for 30.000 years. It was when women owned the land and men where integrated and useful parts of their communities because they were initiated. An initiated man cannot turn against life because he has been reconnected (stems from religio – reconnection) to life itself, he has integrated his female nature. Then some hordes from inner Asia had to migrate and decided to NOT initiate their warrior kings so that they had a horde of men who were capable of even performing atrocities in order to protect their tribe on the move… They invaded peaceful Europe. The first wave was just integrated in the peace – and celebration oriented initiatory cultures who worshipped the earth and all life. The second wave was not integrated but those brutal, because still disconnected from life warriors, just overran and overthrew those peaceful cultures, it happened some 6000 years ago. Since then we are ruled by disconnected vicious, competitive, goal oriented, aggressive and territorial, not initiated, dangerous alpha males – there you have it, and we now have to deal with the perverse consequences of this – not allowing our males to live out their nature and have them initiated because this too, is not understood anymore. All the knowledge about the sacred male initiations has been taken away and distorted from the Catholic Church – and the Vatican and the Queen still rule…

    Since MY daughter died at birth from 'birth defects', know first hand how this impacts the mother, father and family! That also meant no further children..due to the defect. Time has not dulled the pain..those poor mothers.Many times the family does not manage well and falls apart..80% risk. And the CDC covering it up…I wonder how the doctors explain this to a patient (that makes it sound sanitary..patient vs MOTHER)? And 'neural tube' defect..spinal bifida..if child lives..you are talking severe defects of spine and ability to use the body below the damage area. My heart is bleeding for these families.

    You can make up as many explanations as you want, but all you have to do is look at ratio of cancer from ancient graves ( before industrial revolution) and you can clearly see the spike in cancer and the relationship of manmade pollutants on cancer rates and they continues to rise as more and more are contaminants enter the environment. Plastic is one of the worst, like radiation does not go away and not naturally occurring and plastic mimics T cells in body and accumulates.
    Why does mankind insist in destroying his environment and then try's to put it back together.

        But these new humans will not remember our generation with love or respect.
        For it is we, our generation, who so laid waste to the beautiful Planet Earth. :(

        They did drink a lot of wine out of lead-lined wine jars.

        Not a good idea, and was the end of Greek civilization.

    This has been ongoing at Hanford for many years. A friend of mine tells me stories where he used to drive thru Hanford grounds a lot. He said that there is a public highway that goes thru the Hanford site(yes its that big) and that you are not allowed to stop for any reason while on Hanford property and that you must keep going until you reach the perimeter of their property. He said that he used to see deformed and mutated deer on that drive while on Hanford property many times. So much that he used to watch for them each time he drove thru.

    Knowing what is on the way, are we committing suicide by living there? Is it any different from standing in the path of an oncoming truck?

    Depends on your ability to deflect and oncoming truck.

    Tis might be an opportunity to present a case regarding the health impact of radiation exposure in for example the categories 'environmental and toxicologic pathology or/and cell death, tissue injury and repair' and more… May be there is somebody competent and motivated in this forum to present ?

    The deafening silence of all forms of mass media on the subject of radiation is another one of those sad coincidences.

      Who signs the paychecks?

      I knew a reporter for a local rag. I mentioned knowing people who had some information that would make a great expose. He said all reporters know there's great corruption stories out there, and that they all know following up on these stories could be very hazardous to their health. So he follows high school sports. Pays OK, and isn't dangerous.

      Very few people want to risk death for themselves or their families for a moral principle. Just the way it is.

    So what….its just human life, they sure as hell don't give a damn about ocean life. Fuck it……sweep it under the rug. It'll get buried by bieber throwing eggs at someone or some stupid unimportant comment someone makes. real news doesn't get reported.

    Hanford; The gift that just keeps on giving. I've lived 120 miles NE of this poop hole for a majority of my life and we are down winders. We are famous for the highest concentration of MS in the US, maybe the world. Why? This is just another episode in the diary of the DOE, as there are many.

    In short this tank, (AY-102) was to be the first tank drained and turned into glass. Bechtel several months ago laid off 2,400 workers and has basically walked away stating the they will get it under control by 2047. Until then tank AY-101 and AY-102 with over 800,000 gallons each contain toxic substances that boils away between 500-800 degrees F. This has been going on since the 1950's. The nuke guys don't have a clue what is going on inside this tank 102 but do know that it is leaking and has been for a long time. Some 1 million gallons of god knows what, has seeped into the soil, the Columbia River and into our lives. See link below.

    Local damage control people down plays the incident and newspapers print nothing about it. I ask then how many coincidences do we need to not look at Hanford. The young cannot speak for themselves. That is our job as parents, as adults.

    A game our government has had a hand in and has played for over a half century with the consequences of life and death with no winners, no glassification plant, no end in sight.

    Peace,

    Want MORE NBC news? Tonight, news anchor Brian Williams announced that B.O. is allotting billions for a new nuclear reactor in Georgia! This is because MORE NUCLEAR reactors are needed to replace disappearing fossil fuels! (!?!)

    Be SAFE NOW by believing in Father Yahweh and His Son Yahshua, Revelation 14:1. HalleluYah!

  • have lost two nephews in portland, one died a month after he was born, they called it sids. just last year a 13 yr old nephew died,, enlarged heart they called it.
    portland has a face of green and a heart of red. watermellons.
    this state is dominated by infants wearing suit jackets and blue jeans. corruption is the rule, not the exception. there is a political stranglehold on fukushima impacts and denial of the natural course of an irradiated world.
    eugenics is a profitable business model. war, disease and genetic manipulation is taught well in our universities.
    i have no plans, no future is secure enough to make plans now.
    being john galt will soon be a criminal offense to the state. summary executions and black bag kidnapping is already happening.
    ever really looked at the despotism of lincoln? or john adams with the sedition laws in force under either of their admins. fdr had ezra pound committed to an asylum for criticizing the internment of japanese.
