Professor: There’s suggestions “pockets of high contamination” may get carried to U.S. — Radioactive substances will be blanketing West Coast for some time to come (VIDEO)

Title: Record Radiation Readings Near Fukushima
Source: Huffington Post Live
Date: Sept. 4, 2013

Caroline Modarressy Tehrani, Host: Rising radiation levels and leaks at the plant have caused international alarm […] Now there are new fears in the U.S. that an ocean current called the North Pacific Gyre is bringing contaminated Japanese water to the West Coast.

At 3:30 in

Tehrani: Does the disaster have the potential to disrupt the west coast ecosystem entirely or at least in part?

Tim Mousseau, Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at University of South Carolina: At this point it’s a huge unknown. […] There’s suggestions that there may be pockets of high contamination that get carried relatively intact across the ocean, so these have the potential to lead to some contamination. We just don’t know. […]

Given the vast amounts of material that was released I think there will be measurable amounts of the radioactive cesium hitting the West Coast, blanketing the West Coast for some time to come, but whether or not that represents a harmful dose remains to be seen. There’s been very little research done on the long term impacts of these kind of contaminants. […]

    Yes, wind and ocean currents go straight to United States. The radiation causes thyroid cancer and removal. And it causes terminal diseases such as leukemia and lung cancer.

    Nuclear power plants are man made, and will someday be outlawed and replaced with safe energy.

    Contrary to the statement there has been a great deal of radiation effects studies. On dogs, monkeys, birds, invertebrates, fish, and humans. You just don't see those studies in the popular press or on TV. Google searches finds a plethora of scientific studies. We know radiation is toxic in all of the isotopes emitted from Fukushima.

      The difference I've noticed is that the more we are faced with a real threat from radiation, the fuzzier many experts get in their estimations of the parameters of injury to life forms.

  • wemadethis wemadethis

    Recent statements from Tepco and the Japanese government regarding the spread of irradiated water seem to be flying in the face of all of the past 2 years evidence. Some of this is based on their attempts to piggyback on the state of the latest tank leaks. They were very keen to promote reports of level 1 and level 3 events. This style of deception is similar to those of a second hand car salesman 'over-clocking' the mile-o-meter. When its gone to 999,999 keep pushing it till zero turns up. The other reason for what some of the other recent articles are calling 'Official lies' is due to the current bid to draw the Olympics to Tokyo.

    After Japan's bid to host the games is declined, I expect a great amount of Negative disclosure to be released.
    Stay tuned.

    There are very high levels of airborne radiation all over the U.S. right now. Have been watching NETC closely since yesterday. Alarmingly high levels, and they are not dropping. Watching the NETC website light up like Christmas tree lights with rising levels, elevated levels, levels which should trigger alarm, all over the U.S. Very few areas with levels which aren't elevated — at least from what I've seen.

    WHAT is causing this?

      Hello HoTaters; It's been awhile since I've been able to post much or interact with you and/or the individuals in our group who've always stood out & to whom I always hold the highest level of respect for their(your) contribution to our cause & concerns,I hope this finds you well! Since I'd repaired my laptop & dealt with the BS thrown my way by "official" entities that effectively(& suspiciously)happened to take me down even further-I'm back and although my situation seriously limits my web time & what I can do to help. I'm not sure if you've seen anything I set out here since I managed to get back online but I'm sorry to report that since we last conversed here 2/3rds of my immediate household are dealing with full blown cancers including MYSELF now although I don't intend to seek treatment other than pain killers & weed when possible,but my caregiver duties now include my stepfather in-law in home hospice care. I have little doubt as to the origin of the cancer whittling my family down and 2 of the youngest family victims are 8 and 4 yrs old who just recently had large tumors discovered as we anxiously await biopsy reports on our 8 yr old nephew.Some may think this post is OT?-it's not! In my mind the above post,yours & ALL responses including my own are ALL intertwined & connected since IMO the large amount of CA,WA,OR,etc. produce sold & consumed here in SW Chicagoland is as suspect as the tainted air we're subjected to 24/7! 🙁 TAKE CARE HoTaters

      • HoTaters HoTaters

        Hi Johnny. I'm SO sorry to hear you're all dealing with cancers. I've been thinking about you a lot.

        StillJill, Anne, & others here posted a lot of info. on protecting against radiation, in the Forum area. StillJill told me she used baking soda to put her pancreatic (?) cancer into remission. She had been free of cancer for 2-3 years.

        There are posts made here by someone named Noah. Says we all need to be chelating, making sure our bodies get adequate uptake of minerals, etc., so the body doesn't uptake rads instead. The third thing he said was to have foods and supplements very high in ORAC value.

        E-mail me off list, I'd like to talk. Maybe I can help suggest some simple solutions for what you're dealing with. Evidence many cancers can be cure, put into remission. Would like to suggest simple things which may help. Suggest you take a look at Dr. Goodheart's site, too.

        Learned a lot about this; have chronic Lyme. People with Lyme are immune suppressed; are prone to getting cancers.

        Good news – things which work for eliminating rads from the body (and protecting it) also work for detoxification, and in dealing with the results of having cancer &/or getting cancer treatments.

        Many advocate Gershon protocol. However, it's very, very rigorous, and if you don't have a lot of energy, it's not easy to do. Mostly juicing and getting foods (juice and food) into the body to detox, foods/juice having high ORAC value.

        Praying 4 you…

        • HoTaters HoTaters

          JB, do you think the hidden waste dump near where you live could have something to do with this?

          Have been reading parts of the Midwest got really slammed, and have been getting lots of rads from local reactors, in addition to whatever comes over on the jet steam.

          OK to write to me off list to comment on this.

          • HoTaters HoTaters

            P.S. if you write me off list I'll tell you what happened to my Mac awhile back. Have posted here about it a couple of times. Very odd. IMO if we're too vocal, "they" will let us know we're on their radar.

            • Something "happened" to my Mac awhile back, too, in early April, 2011. I'd like to compare Mac events with you, if that's ok?

              Also, yesterday while on the phone, a nice lady's voice interrupted the conversation to inform me that "this call is now being recorded".

              The person I was talking to heard it as well. Neither of us pushed any buttons, or otherwise tweaked settings to record. I can't find "the recording" anywhere on my device.

              Very odd, indeed. I guess it was nice of whoever it was to let me know.

                I have my phone calls just dropped and bam the other person is gone and it only happens when I am speaking the truth, so it must be a big brother moderator deciding what can be spoken and not spoken. I have also heard voices in the background when picking up the phone.

                I have so many people inside my computer I can't keep up with them all and its like I am in the twilight zone!

            • Johnny Blade Johnny Blade

              Thanks HoTaters,I will definitely get back to you "off-list" and am looking forward to it. 🙂 Also Thank you for the kind words & good vibes sent etwas seltsam! I've been thinking about all of you guys & gals I've come to know & respect here since 311 began,and I'd been wondering how many of you have been dealing with the same things or may be about to reach the point where illnesses previously undetected or dismissed are becoming noticeable or known? Seems like every time environmental issues that threaten the deep pockets of the special-interest groups that are the bread & butter of politicians occurs-they start another war or something the world can likely recover from "steals the show" and diverts MSM attention away from what we KNOW is the most important & WORST thing to threaten ALL people & life personally(?)!! An alleged chemical attack in Syria does not compare to a NUCLEAR "attack" by corporations or their Fascist govt. puppets upon EVERYONE EVERYWHERE!! Despite the fact that this overpopulated world holds many undesirables that a just & perfect world would be better without-WHO TF are they to cause and/or allow "seemingly random" mass-depopulation methods to be carried out??!! In my 49 yrs of living I've seen a LOT of BS that left me embarrassed of my country,ethnic background,etc.,but NEVER have I been so ashamed to be a human-being as I've become since 311 began!! If TPTB intended to cause people to lose their will to live-then they've succeeded!…

                Hello Johnny B,

                You won't remember me cuz I've only started posting recently but I wanted to send warm thoughts and prayers to you and yours. I'm so sorry you are dealing with this already.

                Yesterday while on a farming chat a woman started a thread about a chicken suddenly taking ill but she premised it by saying she wasn't able to do anything too crazy to help her sick bird since 3 of her immediate family members had cancer. I didn't feel it was appropriate to start asking her questions about where she lived or whether she thought the chicken's illness might be related to her family's suffering due to environmental issues. The chicken was "gone" within minutes of her initial post. She never once mentioned radiation or any nearby nuclear accidents/plants. I still was left pretty stung by her post and what she is facing. Today I find you are experiencing the same and it just so deeply saddens me.

      • Wow, Johnny Blade…I've been wondering how you & yours have been doing…

        I admire your strength and compassion; sending good thoughts your way.

        You're amazing.

    The only answer to to a truth that can not be covered up, is to lower the bar on the credibility of the lie…

    EPA Draft Stirs Fears of Radically Relaxed Radiation Guidelines

    Were gonna let the UN suggest that, they think that, your environment is safe, cause quite frankly, we don't have a clue…

    It's OK, we just lowered the bar on your future.

    • HoTaters HoTaters

      Thanks for posting a link to the "smoking gun." Had read the EPA was doing this, but yours is the first post providing a link to the actual PDf document with the proposed PAG's. Thank you.

      Jeff McMahon did a good job in explaining why the agencies utilizing and interpreting the PAG's have so much leeway in implementing them. It has always been my argument the implementation and interpretation is far more important than what the PAG's actually say or recommend.

      Considered along with the recent IAEA or UN Resolution 110 or 111 (?) suggesting letting market forces determine who has access to what clean/dirty food, this is very disturbing. I think they're preparing to allow us to be slow roasted by internal ingestion, no holds barred.

      Environmental "Protection" Agency, what an oxymoron.
