Title: NHK reported the risk of internal exposure in June 2009
Source: Fukushima Diary
Date: January 21st, 2012

NHK broadcast a TV program about internal exposure risk of the victims by Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombs though they keep reporting it’s not risky since 311.

In 2009, NHK broadcast a TV program to all over Japan, which was about the damage caused by internal exposure.

On the TV show, NHK introduced the picture of alpha ray emit from a particle left in a cell, which is Plutonium.

[…] even though they take out the part of skin cancer, the surrounding skin cells look normal but the DNA is actually damaged. […]

They even call it a “death ash” to avoid touching but now they are making us eat it. […]

  • We know for a fact that tens of tons of uranium was launched and aerosolized, mostly from reactor 3 explosion. And we know that reactor 3 used MOX fuel which is uranium mixed with plutonium. And we know that all used fuel contains plutonium.

    We know that at LEAST hundreds of pounds of plutonium were launched and aerosolized from Fukushima (Island of Dreams).

    The proof is laid out quite clearly here.

  • arclight arclight

    “Plutonium-239, the isotope found in the spent MOX fuel, is much more radioactive than the depleted Uranium-238 in the fuel.

    Plutonium emits alpha radiation, a highly ionizing form of radiation, rather than beta or gamma radiation. External exposure to alpha particles isn’t much of a health risk, because they have a low penetration depth and are usually stopped by skin. When alpha-emitters get inside cells, on the other hand, they are extremely hazardous. Alpha rays sent out from within cells cause somewhere between 10 and 1,000 times more chromosomal damage than beta or gamma rays.

    According to the Environmental Protection Agency, plutonium enters the bloodstream via the lungs, then moves throughout the body and into the bones, liver, and other organs. It generally stays in those places for decades, subjecting surrounding organs and tissues to a continual bombardment of alpha radiation and greatly increasing the risk of cancer, especially lung cancer, liver cancer and bone sarcoma.”


      @arclight (and stock): excellent post(s)! I recall someone saying, that as a result of the above-ground testing during the fifties, we’re all walking around with trace plutonium within our systems; which got me to thinking about those people who came down with some form-or-another of cancer, yet never exposed themselves to the usual causes. Doubtless a host of other factors could contribute to this ‘phenomena’ as well. But the idea that within anyone of us resides a nano-sized ticking time-bomb, is clear evidence that our world’s being run by incompetents…

        Hello AS,

        You said:

        “But the idea that within anyone of us resides a nano-sized ticking time-bomb, is clear evidence that our world’s being run by incompetents”

        The real truth that no one wants to embrace is they are VERY COMPETENT in the overall agenda. Maybe psychologically deviant, but their plans are on schedule and doing quite well at killing off the useless breathers and eaters PLANET WIDE.

        Have you watched this movie yet? It contains all the real answers and background agendas that are RESPONSIBLE for what you might call incompetence.


        We now live in a country of people who are stupid enough to elect more of the same govt in their leadership instead of real changes, then one can easily understand that there is no incompetence at all. There is only the well crafted plans of total world domination by those who call money god, and the zio-media propaganda machine is doing the finest job ever of keeping people in a place of ignorance and apathy. Heck, where else in the world do they boo the golden rule and vote for another globalist pig who is kowtowing to the same globalist bankster CFR war monger agenda of the republican/democrat war parties and banksters they all work for? Well, all except Ron Paul. All we got in the democrat vote was four more years of the bush agenda. Twelve years of war now looking at four more for a total of 16 years of war! IS THAT WHAT AMERICA REALLY WANTS?

        What is sad to realize is, nothing is going to change at all if Ron Paul is not elected to be our honest non flip-flopping leader. It will be the same war mongering globalist BS meant to kill the USA, freedom, and liberty if anyone besides Ron Paul is elected to office. And all that is based on the big IF, we have an election.

        NUKLEAR WAR! Amerika loves it wants it so badly.

        Vote for the wall st banksters…

            Long story short: why bother about all this fallout from japan if you know it is only a matter of time until they unleash more world war and shoot off say, only 60 nuklear bombs in their planned war world wide.

            Who is going to be around to check radiation and place your measurements on the radiation reporting thread then?

        • StillJill StillJill

          James T. Did you see that miserable turn out for Ron Paul the other morning? What was it, 2 AM? Disgusting how they treat him!

          He’ll have my vote, even though I’m told I’m wasting it. Screw those folks-vote your conscience!

          Ron Paul is pro nuclear energy. He would take away all my health insurance that I worked hard for. The Federal Reserve is a private bank. It is not a government bank. He can’t get rid of it.

        My mother had surgery for cervical cancer this last year. A spot on her also investigated. It is a non-cancerous lesion, but a lesion without a reason, nevertheless. She has the pictures the doctor provided.

        She lived in Denver from age 2 to 32. Besides being subjected to fallout from above ground tests, we lived 17 miles downwind of the Rocky Flats nuclear weapons plant, which had releases from fires, leakage and dust blowing around, and probably only God and those who worked there know for sure what else.

        Dad died in 1997 after surgery for a back break, at a spot ‘osteoporosed’, as well as which had developed two 90 degree curvatures. Doctors I’ve talked with since say it was likely the beginning of bone cancer. Apparently they didn’t check when doing surgery.

        An aunt and uncle of my mom who also lived in Denver, from 1945, both died of cancer, in 1979 and 1980, her uterine and blood, him lung. He was a smoker. She was a smoker. One of her nieces died of breast cancer at a young age.

        Grandpa had throat and lung cancer in 1974, and survived after surgery and radiation. He was a smoker. Grandma has survived both uterine and breast cancer. Mom’s brother died in 2010 of lymphatic/tongue/throat cancer, killed by the treatment. Her sister has survived uterine cancer. One of Grandma’s brothers had colon cancer.

        A cousin and I both had a leg bone disease as kids requiring wearing a brace for 2 to 3 years.

        Lots of family, lots of cancer, some smokers, all lived in a zone downwind of a nuclear weapons plant.

        Pesticides, toxic chemicals, cigarette smoke, some heavy metals, vitamin deficiencies, natural background radiation, all these and others can cause cancer. But it looks like cancer really didn’t begin to be a big problem, until after nuclear power, both weapons and power plants.

      Very interesting arclight. I was just pondering that alpha particle being two protons and neutrons ejecting out of massive nuclei like Uranium and Plutonium. Isn’t it true that if it strikes a nucleus of another atom, it can transmute it into an entirely different element. I mean, since it is so ionizing? Say you have a molecule of water H2O and along comes a massive alpha particle that crashes into the oxygen nucleus. What then? I would think it can raise all kinds of havoc with the molecule. And if it was inside the body, then what? Someone? Anyone? I think we can handle a little bad news around here.

        plutonium likes water.. very hard to get rid of!!

        Bad to the Bone:
        Analysis of the Federal Maximum Contaminant Levels for
        Plutonium-239 and Other Alpha-Emitting Transuranic
        Radionuclides in Drinking Water

        Arjun Makhijani,

        “Drinking water maximum contaminant limits for plutonium-239 and other alpha-emitting, long-lived transuranic radionuclides are about a hundred times too lax.”

        “Drinking water regulations – when they were first set – explicitly included military sources of radionuclides – specifically, fallout from testing.”

        “A much tighter MCL for alpha-emitting, long-lived transuranic radionuclides is needed to prevent lax approaches to cleanup of weapons sites.”

        “Once drinking water is polluted to a few picocuries per liter, which is many times the indicated MCL by current science, it will be essentially impossible to remediate it.”

        “The relaxation of DOE goals in regard to cleanup and the lack of national cleanup standards necessitates an urgent revision of MCLs for alpha-emitting, long-lived transuranic radionuclides, if critical drinking water systems are to be protected for the long-term”

        “The primary sites are in Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Washington state. Further, the combined plutonium-238, – 239, and -240 inventory contained in DOE high-level waste tanks at Savannah River Site is over a million curies. In 2004, Congress gave DOE the latitude to reclassify some of this waste. DOE can now grout high-level waste in place by reclassifying it as waste incidental to reprocessing. Congress set no limit on the total residual radioactivity content of the grouted waste. Since grouting is essentially irreversible, …….”

        thought this interesting.. as we are talking about contamination moving around landscapes and it turns out that the us mlitary has models for this… hope they read enenews for the detail..

        “At present, remediation levels are typically assessed by the use of a model developed by Argonne National Laboratory called RESRAD (for residual radioactivity).39 This computer code is complex and has, over the years, been developed to consider pathways for movement of radioactivity in a sophisticated way.

        Yet, it does not contain libraries of dose conversion factors for, and thus does not account for, infants or for young people at sensitive times in their hormonal development or for the fetus at various stages of fetal development.

        The estimation of doses to various segments of the population at sensitive periods in their lives may also require consideration of how the environmental pathways and the systems in the human body are represented in the model’s source code.

        The RESRAD source code is closely held by the U.S. government; it is not public. Ostensibly, the official rationale is that since RESRAD is used for regulatory decisions, such as those that are made in the context of cleanup at nuclear weapons sites, it should not be made public.

        However, we do not accept this rationale. The code can be made public and can be an open source code, available for modification in the same manner as the Linux operating system source code. That has resulted in its improvement and efficiency, without problems actually creeping into mass use of the code as an operating system.

        The U.S. government can surely retain its version of the code for regulatory purposes while making the source code publicly available for examination and improvement. If at a certain stage, the code is improved in a manner that regulatory bodies such as the EPA consider it useful for regulatory purposes, they will freely be able to adopt the changes but will be under no obligation to so.”

    • I recently learned that plutonium ALSO emits gamma rays, as well as the alpha rays you talk about… This is the source of my information….

      Can a Geiger Counter detect Plutonium?

      If the alpha rays do not get you, the gamma rays will.

      Is this why plutonium is SO MUCH WORSE than any other radioactive element?

    great resource here on this topic

    “Information on radiation dose, medical examinations and causes of death among atomic bomb survivor health handbook holders is stored in the center’s computer database. This brochure includes the results of epidemiological studies on atomic bomb exposure and health conducted on the basis of this information.”

    “Boiling water is not too hard, but generating the heat to raise high-press­ure steam inside a sealed vessel for many months on end is damned close to a miracle.

    And my response…..

  • How can you detect hot particles in your body?

    sorry I am off topic but…It is time for a general strike. No consumer purchases of any kind for 2 weeks. People stay home from work, loose your job, soon it wont matter any way so we might as well get the ball rolling in our direction. We need to get there attention ASAP.
