[...]

The invisible danger of radiation haunts this town [Minamisoma]. The nurses still working at the hospital are uneasy about it too.

[Nurse 1:] “We don’t know what’s going to happen in Fukushima, everything depends on the situation at the nuclear plant, so we live in a constant state of anxiety.”

    Comrades,

    We are all being poisoned. We are all being lied to. There is no way those detonations were due to hydrogen ALONE. The engineering specifications on all containment buildings are built to code to contain such a blast. How much hydrogen can be created from 20-tons of zirconium? I found (online source) around 3,000-lbs? Now, considering, what would 3,000-lbs of hydrogen do to a containment building? Well, just from an observational perspective, I watched ( online) US 2,000-lb bomb detonations, now, that’s way more powerful then 3,000-lbs of Hydrogen, but even with High Grade Explosives, I don’t see re-enforced concrete thrown 1,000-feet into the Sky!

    Compare for yourselves … hydrogen??? In any case, just picture that mythbusters cement truck in the parking lot of that fuk #3 blast. I believe they used 2000-lbs of high-explosives? This is orders of Magnitude beyond Hydrogen, comrades! You can see this is on scale with the 40,000-lbs of EOD explosives blown in pic #2.

    Oh, and the fuk # 3 pics look to be about 10-miles from detonation site.

    Gottagetoffthegrid,

    Yes, the FUK Blast is MASSIVE! I can only say, We were lied to in Massive! I don’t know why so many people bought it, because the FUK BLAST “JUST KEEPS ON GOING UP” Thousands of Feet INTO THE SKY! WOW! I mean, the E.O.D., (pic 1, sorry) 40,000-lb Blast doesn’t even go that high; yet alone blowing "Thousands of TONS" of reinforced concrete (plus fuel rods/fuel) up into the air and vaporizing it! NO, NO, NO … THAT BLAST HAD TO BE A SMALL NUCLEAR DETONATION!!

    I notice, on any particular live news reel, you have so-called experts claiming: “hydrogen,” BS, because any so-called expert could not possibly have a clue until the site was analyzed! However, if the so-called expert was an expert in "explosives and detonations," well perhaps, they would have said different? Engineers are not experts in Explosions/Detonations! Yet the whole world swallowed it, literally, and without Complaint! With Exception, of Course, for the Few of us here and elsewhere, and we are a minority!

    That NHK Special posted above was powerful. THIS is the kind of videos 60 minutes, 20/20, NPR should be doing about Fukushima. It was REAL.

      this was a damming video showing government neglect.. how many military personnel are in the japanese army, navy and air force?? there should be NO shortage of nursing staff and resources..

      made me cry, especially the last bit…

      tepgov stand aloof, betraying the most basic Buddhist principals of compassion and love, for a buck…… grrrrrrrr!

      I will always wondered if the radiation effects were worse for men, that more would have been done to avoid or mitigate those effects.
      Also, can we question that just the uncertainty of the effects of radiation cause anxiety? Might radiation itself affect the human psyche and find expression as anxiety? At some level the conscious life form must know that their biology is under attack and they don't have a way to express this other than with a feeling of anxiety. The dilemma: fight or flight with an invisible attacker.

    Just wait until the the money crisis hits Japan, like it is Greece right now…

    People have not been paid in months, ATMS are closed, there is a run on the banks, and it is getting worse by the week.

    This may end up being a panic that spreads to the rest of Europe and then the world.

    Many countries are bankrupt, and could not handle a run on banks with people pulling money out.

    Japan is on that short list with Greece…

    It has been estimated that Japan owes more than Greece per capita, and it has a nuclear crisis on top of that.

    How will it survive financially with a 10 TRILLION dollar price tag for this disaster, ON TOP OF the HUGE debt it had already?

    rant/on

    the chernobyl "trick"

    relying on limited statistics from ukraine and russia (but mainly ukraine) the western oncology mob, using algorythms and a slide rule, did come up with a total amount of 4000 people effected in total..

    but what about belarus? i hear you scream?

    belarus was not part of the scheme because the people refused to comply.. and when i asked imperial college, it turns out that the japanese were covering that area.. and i should ask "the japanese" about their statistics..

    the data for the project is not available, though individual japanese who worked on the project were first to draw comparisons with the symptoms they were seeing in japan with those of belarus (the worst hit area), chernobyl heart works there too!

    1 year on and the above video attests to the claim of the people of fukushima "that they have been sidelined for the economy or japanese nuclear pride…

    looks like the "japanese trick".. a rehash of the chernobyl one..

    sideline the population, lie about the level of contamination, waffle on about psuedopsychology, wait for people to forget, manipulate the data and no comprehensive testing on the population… no independent monitoring allowed..

    same old game then..

    the japanese government helped pull the strings concerning chernobyl with the help of uk and usa science oncology.. now fukushima!!??

    NOT IF THE PEOPLE HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT!!/rant

    peace

      the japanese medical proffession needs to recruit older people to do the nursing from around japan, replacing the under 45 year olds imo

      its a simple solution to this problem but requires the encouragement of the health managers.. it is also possible to recruit part time staff for some duties to minimise the whole dose..

      there are solutions to this.. and more than my sad brain can come up with.. ignoring it is not an option.. imo

      thanks for posting this important video admin.. i hope people will download it while they can, given recent copyright issues..

      So true, same tricks and deceptions after every accident, no matter how big or small…

      I would post a link but I am at my 'max'

    25 Hospitals held a job fair in Tokyo, and only FIVE nurses showed up for the hundreds if not thousands of jobs in Fukushima area hospitals.

    The news is spreading far and wide that working in or near FUKU may be 'slightly' hazardous to your health.

    LOW DOSE RADIATION IS DANGEROUS!

    Comrades,

    Yes, low dose radiation is very dangerous. As a healthcare professional, licensed by my state, I could not pass state licensure without knowing that fact! You know that Lead Shield the Dentist Places over you when taking x-ray, well if it’s not placed right -ONE- and I repeat “ONE” x-ray can fry the chromosomes in your Semen, or Eggs. Oh, and for the record … I scored in the Top One-Percent.

    There have been many suits filed due to CT scan, and other non-necessary scans, due to radiological death … Google the Suits! There are also many “online” medical lectures about the Dangers of Low Dose Radiation. All I can Say, SHAME ON ALL THE “SO CALLED,” HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS!

    The people around Fucushima need to Get OUT Now, the longer they stay, the worse their Future!

    she could have her ovum frozen and stored for future use. she's a young and attractive women who bravely stays and tries to help her fellow citizens. she could evacuate too. look at the enormous pile of you know what this form of energy causes people to go through when it fails. the biggest form of respect we could have for the founding fathers of nuclear particle physics is to never use it ever again, at least for energy production.
