Radiation levels of the Japanese government spoof, 금.TV, June 16, 2011:

Google Translation

The Japanese government announced the radiation levels displayed in the map view is shown in this video is good published papers. [...]

This video is from the radiation detector is 0.347 micro-[Sieverts] Per Hour shows. This 347 nSv / h will be called.

Japanese newspapers put the unit into melee [Sieverts] Per Hour to mark the radioactivity 0.00004 mSv / h is shown as. [...]

Speaking 40 nSv / h, 0.04 Per Hour Micro [Sieverts] is this shame that little radioactivity. [...]

    16 Japan Government’s radiation level cheat
    Japan Government by admin announcement radioactivity levels marked on the map nicely published newspaper in the video. This video is the Publisher of Japan, the Government is trying to collapse the value of the radioactivity and are determined to be.
    I think so. This video is from the radiation meter 0.347 micro edge suite was updated into Augustus. In other words, 347 nSv/h.
    Japan newspapers changed the unit of measure, but Millie Perkins updated make Augustus Aero check radioactivity 0.00004 mSv/h. Did it on purpose in front of a lot of the number 0 as a very small amount of radioactive imply sake seem is. People not figures wanted it to look.
    That is to say 40 nSv/h, 0.04 percentage updated make micro time called less radioactive Augustus figures Lai. Best wait idly all day less drought beans or less levels seemed best to come out to less wait.
    As Korea. The same seems to be cheating. The best intensive micro edge suite’s updated Augustus (μ S v/h) without the use of the units, but putting updated to make the Nano Augustus (nSv/h) notation can be confusing to people to be laid out.
    Most of the radiation meter make the micro index updated flops Augustus Aero figures notation.
    Radiological measurement information, exclusive, control, manipulation is poor peoples prayer hath driven to death. In particular, children and old people to die first.

    Again .347 uSv/hr is a pretty “normal” level. The average individual exposure in the US is .34 uSv/hr.

      According to Wikipidia:
      The hourly doses are 1.6μSv/h (0.0016mSv/h, equivalent to 14mSv/year) in the city of Fukushima and 0.062μSv/h (0.000062mSv/h, equivalent to 0.54mSv/year) in Tokyo as of May 25, 2011.
      The current reading would be 5 times higher in Tokyo, at least at ground level. That means there are lots of hot particles flying around, which translates to increased risk of internal contamination via the air we breath and the food and water supply… This is pretty serious.

    Vaccine against radiation
    Maria Domnitskaya

    Mar 22, 2011 16:22 Moscow Time

    Scientists at a research center in Vladikavkaz, the capital of Russia’s North Ossetia Republic, have developed a unique vaccine, which neutralizes the radiation exposure on living organisms. Their Japanese colleagues are interested in the vaccine and plan to use it to reduce the level of radiation level of those who involved in clean-up operations after the disaster at the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant are being exposed to.

    According to Vyacheslav Maliyev, the head of the department of biotechnologies at the Vladikavkaz research center, the Russian scientists are now working in cooperation with the specialists of NASA and the work on the vaccine will soon be completed.

    American radiobiologists joined the research in 2006 after the Russian and American vaccines had been tested on animals. The animals, exposed to the radiation level, with which they could live no longer than seven days, were injected with one of the two vaccines. The animals which received the injection of the American vaccine died on the fourth day while the animals injected with the Russian vaccine survived. Two months later the scientists examined the animals and found no deviations in their organisms.

    After that the Russian and American scientists conducted joint research of the vaccine both on animal and human cells. The efficiency of the agent was proved. The vaccine works even if the radiation level exceeds the norm by a thousand times. However the scientists from Vladikavkaz say there are no plans on the clinical use of the vaccine yet.

    It usually takes years to test anti-radiation medications because in case of radiation deterioration processes take place on the level of DNA. We hear from Woldemar Tarita, the head of the laboratory of the All-Russian center of acute and radiation medicine of the Emergency Ministry:

    “Among the simplest and most available means to reduce the effect of radiation on humans are iodine-based medicines, which protect the thyroid gland. But if the radiation background is normal one should not practice self-treatment using iodine medicines and biologically active additives. Their overdose leads to negative consequences: allergic reactions, nettle rash, fever and different forms of dermatitis. As a preventive measure it is enough to eat sea cabbage.”

    On their return from Japan the Russian rescuers will be checked for radiation exposure at the All-Russian center of acute and radiation medicine in St. Petersburg, Tarita says.

    “There we have a spectrometer. It is a big iron cell where the presence of the radioactive substances in human organisms can be checked. Now we are waiting for the rescuers, who are now working in Japan. Of course, they are now breathing that air so they can inhale something radioactive. On their return we will check if their organisms were exposed to radiation or not.”

    More than 150 Russian rescuers are working at present in the districts of Japan hit by the earthquake and tsunami. They have recovered 112 dead bodies from the ruins. Up till now the radiation background level in the areas where they are working has not exceeded the maximum admissible norm and is 0.3-0.4 microsieverts per hour.

    • Fall out man!

      A vaccine to stop the effects of radiation? I reckon that report is PR in itself, giving the impression that the same “scientists” (really PR guys) who brought us this mess will magically make it all ok. I don’t buy their PR this time. Its one of those things where they know if they tell an attractive enough lie, people will believe it. Like Head Japanese Dr Ima Shitinya with his advice to the public of Japan that positive thinkers will not be affected by radiation!

      A vaccine is always the NWO’s answer to their latest health disaster these days. Take that vaccine at your peril. If it exists, who knows what it would do to you. But if people get scared enough, they’ll try anything, and the powers that be know it. At best it would be a placebo, at worst… I dread to think.

    Dose limit examples

    Criterion for relocation after Chernobyl disaster: 350 mSv/lifetime[12]

    In most countries the current maximum permissible dose to radiation workers is 20 mSv per year averaged over five years, with a maximum of 50 mSv in any one year.

    This is over and above background exposure, and excludes medical exposure. The value originates from the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP), and is coupled with the requirement to keep exposure as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA) – taking into account social and economic factors.[20]

    Public dose limits for exposure from uranium mining or nuclear plants are usually set at 1 mSv/yr above background.[20]

    Concerns of Fukushima fallout low in U.S.

    It has been three months since Japan was hit by a string of disasters in March, including a major earthquake and tsunami that crippled the Fukushima-1 Nuclear Power Plant. After the disasters, the nuclear plant began leaking millions of tons of radioactive material into the Pacific Ocean.

    Natural ocean currents will ultimately carry this radioactive material to North America’s Pacific Northwest, in particular Alaska, Washington, Oregon and British Columbia. The Pacific Northwest is a major producer of seafood and an important aspect in the economy of that region.

    Marine team to monitor west Pacific radiation

    XIAMEN – China’s State Oceanic Administration dispatched a marine monitoring team Thursday from Xiamen City, in China’s southeast Fujian Province, to monitor radiation in the west Pacific.

    The aim of the mission is to get a better understanding of how nuclear radiation affects the marine environment.

    Wang Fei, deputy chief of the State Oceanic Administration, said the mission will help China establish a radioactive alert system in the west Pacific.

    The monitoring team consists of 40 people and will sail about 5,000 nautical miles in 30 days, according to the plan.

    Radiation detected in Japanese minke whales Thursday, 16 June 2011 10:23

    THE Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society (WDCS) has learned that Japan’s spring coastal whaling off Kushiro has ended, and that radioactive caesium has been detected in some of the whales taken.
    Mark Simmonds, WDCS International Director of Science, said: “Sadly this shows that radioactive caesium is within the whole marine food chain and even reaching the whales.”

    The implications for the health of whales or for human consumers are unclear and levels detected in whales are below the provisional guideline for human health of 500 becquerels/kg set by Japan.

    Since the March 11th quake, samples of a growing number of species have been found to exceed safety levels recommended by Japan, including Japanese sandlance, whitebait, ayu sweetfish, Japanese smelt, Land-locked salmon, Mediterranean mussel , Wakame seaweed, Hijiki seaweed, Arame seaweed,Japanese dace, Surf clam, Sea urchin, brown hakeling and fat greenling. Japanese sand lance is a key prey species for minke whales.

    The termination of the coastal hunt after taking just 17 whales as compared to ~45 in 2010 raises many questions about the future of Japanese whaling and its likely strategy at the forthcoming IWC meeting (where it has previously argued strongly for a legalization of its coastal whaling).
    With the future of its Antarctic whaling in question, its Ayukawa-based coastal hunt prevented by tsunami-damage and the expanded Hokkaido-based coastal hunt now threatened by radioactivity, Japan’s only viable option for whaling at this point may be the offshore hunt in the North Pacific that just launched, in which it plans to kill 100 minke whales, 10 sperm whales, 50 Bryde’s whales and 100 sei whales. Officials have announced that meat from those whales will also be monitored for radiation.

    Nuclear Radiation: Law Suit Directed Against Japan’s TEPCO

    by Gavin Blair
    Japan: TEPCO trips, but will it fall?
    By Created 1100-06-15 14:07

    The nuclear plant operator may be “too big to fail,” but that doesn’t mean it won’t.

    TOKYO, Japan — Tokyo Electric Power Co., the beleagured operator of the stricken Fukushima Dai-ichi power plant, is taking hits on all sides.

    Massive compensation payments, financial uncertainty and now a legal challenge calling for its license to be revoked, have the company all but pinned. And the fate of the company, as it struggles to contain the world’s worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl [3], remains largely uncertain.

    On Monday, TEPCO shares fell 28 percent on the Tokyo Stock Exchange to a record low after media reports over the weekend suggested that the company could be forced to delist from the market. The nosedive caused trading of the company’s stock to be automatically suspended by the market’s “circuit breakers,” which kick in when share prices drop suddenly.

    Once the world’s largest private utility company, TEPCO has lost $36 billion in market value since the beginning of the crisis, and last month posted the largest loss ever by a non-financial company in Japan, 1.258 trillion yen ($15 billion) — which didn’t take into account compensation payments.

    TEPCO is also forecast to have an operating loss of 570 billion yen this financial year ending in March 2012, again before factoring in compensation.

    The issue of payments by TEPCO to evacuated residents, local businesses, fishermen, farmers and the many others affected by the Fukushima crisis, remains almost as foggy as the financial future of the company. The government is insisting there will be no cap put on the amount of compensation that TEPCO could be liable for — expected to total trillions of yen.

    Discussions are still ongoing between the utility, the government and the banks — major holders of TEPCO equity and debt — as to who will be liable and for how much.

    And for now at least, compensation isn’t the biggest threat to TEPCO’s bottom line.Japan: TEPCO trips, but will it fall?

    Newspeak continues and so do the lies: Hot spot evacuation zones?

    Gov’t to designate new evacuation spots near Fukushima plant
    (Mainichi Japan) June 17, 2011

    TOKYO (Kyodo) — Japan has decided to designate new spots for possible evacuation near the crisis-hit Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant that are feared to have radiation levels which go beyond an internationally recommended benchmark, the top government spokesman said Thursday.

    The policy on the areas dubbed as “hot spots” will cover specific households in a residential area,…

    Edano also said, “We see that there is no such risk that warrants a blanket evacuation,” indicating it is not necessary to make the evacuation from the spots mandatory.

    I bought one of these same Radalert Inspectors more than 10 years for no particular reason than curiosity about my environment.

    My living room here texas
    measures 0.01-0.015 microS/hr.

    At 0.2microS in the video:
    0.2 / 1000 .0002 mS/hr
    365*24 = 8760
    .0002 * 8760 = 1.75mS/yr

    referencing Pu239′s stats from above, that’s certainly a lot less juice than say smoking or taking frequent international air line trips. Even indoor radon can be alot worse. I’m not sure if Japan gets radon, but I discovered my house has high radon even though the EPA says the area is low on average. I’m wondering how many other homes, offices, and other poorly ventilated buildings have high indoor radon.

    0.2mS/hr would probably peel a few years off of an adult’s life expectancy, but it’s probably bad news for fetus’s, and young children, along with sex organs. Fukushima radiation is probably mostly particulate, with long lasting radiactive particles, which is very different than xray or radon. Radon has a very short half life, and getting fresh air stops the damage.
