Cemetery full of dead babies missing brains next to US nuclear site — Funeral Director: Almost all infants we have died the same way… “that’s pretty much all I see on death certificates” — Few miles from “most contaminated place in hemisphere” — “One of largest documented anencephaly clusters in US history” (VIDEO)

Seattle Times, updated Jan 28, 2016 (emphasis added): How the state is missing chances to find deadly birth defect’s causeat least 40 other mothers have lost babies to [anencephaly, which result in missing large parts of the brain] in Yakima, Benton and Franklin counties since 2010… one of the largest documented clusters of anencephaly in U.S. history… “Something’s going on and someone needs to tell us,” said [mother Sally] Garcia… Dr. Lisa Galbraith was one of the doctors… In Prosser, the obstetrician oversaw care of Garcia’s pregnancy and others affected by the disorder… “I had a total of four or five babies with anencephaly over the course of two years,” recalled Galbraith… the rate of anencephaly was much higher [than US averages]… Washington health officials… have collected no blood samples, performed no genetic tests and conducted no examination of water, soil… and have no plans to do so… In Texas, just three babies with anencephaly sparked enough outrage to overhaul the state’s birth-defects reporting system.

Seattle Times video transcriptCarlen Majnarich, funeral director: “It’s tragic… It just seems like that’s pretty much all I see on the death certificate is the same diagnosis. And nobody seems to know why. We average close to 100 families a year here in Prosser [a few miles from Hanford]. Almost all the infants that we have have died of anencephaly. It’s just what do you say?”… Sally Garcia (mother who lost her baby to anencephaly): “All these on this side [of the cemetery] are all babies… all babies, starting from right there.”

The Legal Examiner, Dec 31, 2015: [T]he strange eruption of anencephaly cases, which occurs in Washington at a rate almost 5 times as high as the national average, has highlighted a number of government policies that may actually conceal these sort of birth defect “clusters,” rather than help investigate them.

KVEW-TV, Mar 4, 2016: As of November 2015 cases of anencephaly have continued to increase with the current rate at 9.5 per 10,000 live births.

Sara Barron, MS, BSN – American Journal of Nursing, Mar 2016: In the spring of 2012 two babies without brains were born within weeks of each other at the rural hospital in Washington State where I was working… I was stunned when the delivering physician said another patient was expecting the same outcome. After speaking with colleagues at neighboring hospitals, I learned that two other babies with anencephaly had recently been born in the area. In over 30 years of nursing, I had seen only two cases of anencephaly prior to these. I called the Washington State Department of Health and reported a birth defect cluster… RISK FACTORS… Radiation exposure. Popular media and blogs have often linked the Washington State NTD cluster to the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in Benton County, Washington. Although leaks from nuclear power plants have been associated with a higher rate of anencephaly and other NTDs, Washington State Department of Health investigators point out that the three counties with the highest prevalence of NTDs were both upwind and upriver of the Hanford site, making the nuclear plant an unlikely cause of the 2012 cluster.

  • Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists: “The Hanford Site… is widely considered to be the most contaminated place in the Western Hemisphere
  • KOIN: “The biggest, most toxic nuclear waste site in the Western hemisphere
  • Time: “The largest nuclear clean-up site in the western hemisphere
  • AFP: “The Western hemisphere’s most contaminated nuclear site“”

More infant deaths near Hanford: Cemetery blocks filled w/ babies downwind of US nuclear site — Mother: My newborns died in hours… tumors all over, brain disintegrated after massive stroke — “Body parts, cadavers, fetuses… nuke industry took in the dead of night”

    That is 9 times the boiling point of water. Polonium and other radionucleides in the top layer of the water in the pacific could certainly heat the 100 square mile island of polyethylene in the pacific as bobby1 and I have said. The claim that the fires at wipp were caused by fission are over the top and pretty scary but probably not true. It was more likely heat decay from the plutonium. The radioactive waste buried in nevada certainly caught fire and blew-up from heat decay. There are many articles here with a great deal of evidence that creatures in the pacific are dying from radionucleide exposure. People here do not attack that yet, there is direct evidence that heat decay raises the temperature of water from radionucleides and can cause fires in orgqnic garbage.

  • mon ami

    Yes Polonium has a very high power density from heat decay. Far more than enough to heat plastic up enough and cause it to generate gases.
    210Po
    polonium-210. This isotope provides phenomenal power density (pure 210Po emits 140 W/g) because of its high decay rate, A half-gram sample of 210Po reaches temperatures of over 500 °C (900 °F).

    I was in Oregon at the time. Absolutely freaked out when I got wind of TMI as most of my tribe was downwind so to speak.

    I remember exploring a stream and pondering the vast amounts of water needed to cool the reactors and spent fuel pool(s).

    To this day I am not so certain that I know what truly happened, nor how much radiation escaped containment (they sure vented something!!).

    Fukushima is mostly ininhabitable keyhole. You advocate letting the criminal abe government lie to the people and force others to go there to build more industrial projects. Fukushima has more radioactive waste than the exlusion zone of chernobyl. What you are advocating is criminal keyhole. You know that.

    Comments
    The comment section on Internet articles is the most useless part of the Internet..the place where sanity and civility goe to die.

    Comment sections deride the world all over. For everyone that says the comment section provides a crucial medium for free speech, I’m willing to bet more are going to swear that it’s useless. And I find people self-reporting as useful as online games.

    The idea of capturing the intelligence of the readership, that’s a joke. For every two comments that are interesting, and even if they are critical you want to engage with them, there will be eight that are off-topic or just toxic.

    In the old days we had the letter to the editor; now we just have email, and the ability to have a front row seat in ruining someone’s day..to see what the curious cat dragged in from the depths of the Internet.

      The quantity may be new, but not the chemistry….(unless of course, it has become radioactive)

      Methane has been in cow manure all along; it is in all excrement. In fact, I seem to recall that it is also found in all decaying matter. It is being uncovered as the ice melts.

      Methane breaks down in the atmosphere and creates CH·3 with water vapor. It also increases with the greenhouse effect. And Man, in his attempt to prevent entry of solar and cosmic rays by his use of aerial chem. sprays, has trapped the polluting gases in a created canopy

    Yes. Keyhole. TY. Nuclear power has never made sense,either from a environmental standpoint,or from the financial standpoint. Never. The only reason to have Nuclear Power Plants is to produce Plutonium for Nuclear Weapons. Period.

    The Nuclear Industry is profitable for the investors simply because they have no liability. In case of an accident,the government steps in to oversee the cleanup,and citizens pay again,unwillingly,with their money,and their lives,for their "cheap" energy.

    After 70 years of producing Nuclear Poison,they still haven't come up with either a manner,or a location to store that poison,so it is dissolved into the water,the air,and the ground where it keeps on killing forever. Great idea this Nuclear Power,huh?

    Well,let me tell you. I don't think the Japanese people are under the illusion any longer that Nuclear Power is safe,clean,efficient,and cheap. Nuclear industry lies only so so far. Nor I.

    The fact is,the military wants Plutonium. They just can't get enough. They seek to obtain this precious regardless of the very real threat it constitutes,not only taxpayers,but to Life,at large.

    The only way to avoid a popular uprising against Nuclear Power is for the Nuclear Energy Industry is to lie about the dangers of Nuclear Power,and to cover up any evidence to the contrary.

    ENENewsers are not liars. We have no reason to lie. We share information in order that we may survive the Nuclear onslaught,and to be able to help others to do…

    Hi newsers, I wasn't going to be posting atm but I will jump in to remind certain vain pro nuke shyt-talker that the threads originated from MSM sourced articles and any alleged"sensationalism" comes from sources that they deem credible via the majority of the crap that is usually only published if it serves the nuke pukers agenda. The sellouts initiate the stories with the sensationalism headlines that would trick others into reading the threads that always seem to conveniently stray or take a 180deg turn ending up somehow turning it into a "happy ending"with the 311 Fukushima ELE instead touted as being in cold shutdown and without any harm having come to anyone aside from the "irrational fear" rather than the worst ever(& completely avoidable) poisoning of the world!!! It's as if it were somehow stopped before it was able to physically harm anyone but those of us who know better and are willing to challenge the lies and keep pushing for change that doesn't include the failed nuke technology remaining on the table and classified as a "clean,green" energy option. I'm just another one of the growing voices of concern,able to think and see for myself the lousy results of pushing nuke crap off on the gullible populace of which I can never go back to being a part of. Nobody's forcing anyone to stick around here if their opinion of us and the website is so disappointing or distorted,in fact don't let the door hit you in the ass, we'll be just fine without ya.

    Global Nuclear Reactor Construction Market to Grow at a CAGR of 5.22% During 2015-2019

    "…For instance, in October 2014, the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission certified GE Hitachi's Economic Simplified Boiling Water Reactor (ESBWR) design. ESBWR is a Generation III boiling water reactor equipped with advanced passive safety system. Moreover, the government across different countries are also planning to decommission nuclear reactors of 39-44 years old, to contain safety hazards associated with the reactors. The global nuclear reactor construction market was valued at $34.13 billion in 2014, in terms of total investment, as compared to $32.64 billion in 2013.

    The report covers the present scenario and the its growth prospects of the global nuclear reactor construction market for the period 2015-2019.

      Hey, perfect tie-in for this comment And this story… looks like CGS scrammed today Sometime.

      The RSOE app just now got the alert @9:25 pm pacific. The alert itself says the shutdown happened at either 3:30am or 1:30am, in two different places in the alert and in the summary.

      It also says its shutdown atm, but my NETC subscription expired, does anyone see if they shut down the Richland detectors in the past 24 hours? Long tail to track an encephaly spike but Im just curious if they shut off the detection in Eastern Wa in the past 24 hours….not that they would do that.

      • freebywill

        re: CGS shutdown – EPA Richland station has a data gap between last measurement cycle ending 2016-03-28 13:54:36 and is missing data for approx 3 hrs resumes measurement cycling starting 2016-03-28 16:47:46.

        readings before and after the gap don't appear to show anything out of the normal range but if there is a spike we can't see it.

        Seattle, Olympia and Spokane stations have no gaps.

    'When Will Trump be Assassinated? '

    "…The point is, those in power will NEVER surrender their power willingly. Donald Trump is flying in the face of people so corrupt that they would not hesitate to have him assassinated somehow, be it a plane or car crash or under the pretense of some minority who gets amazing access. This is standard operating procedure and it is dominant throughout history from ancient times to the present. They will stop Donald Trump one way or another. They cannot afford to lose control of their money machine. The press is part of the establishment, for you can see they have received their orders to portray Trump as dangerous. They should be nominated for an Oscar at the Academy Awards. This is why there is ultimately revolution. No individual can reverse the direction of corruption. Yet the practice of assassination is historic.

    So either the rig the convention, or they create an accident. The “establishment” does not appear willing to accept Trump under any conditions."
