Japanese Cancer Expert on the Fukushima Situation, Asia Pacific Journal, July 01, 2011:

Japan’s leading business journal Toyo Keizai has published an article by Hokkaido Cancer Center director Nishio Masamichi, a radiation treatment specialist. The piece, entitled “The Problem of Radiation Exposure Countermeasures for the Fukushima Nuclear Accident: Concerns for the Present Situation”, was published on June 27 […]

Nishio originally called for “calm” in the days after the accident. Now, he argues, that as the gravity of the situation at the plant has become more clear, the specter of long-term radiation exposure must be reckoned with. […]

Looking at these groups [TEPCO, bureaucrats, politicians, nuclear lobbyists, and academic flunkies] he writes, “I just cannot feel any hope for Japan’s future. These circumstances are simply tragic.”

Nishio provides a blunt and hard-hitting specialist perspective on major government decisions. Here is a summary of some of his major points: […]

Former Minister for Internal Affairs Haraguchi Kazuhiro has alleged that radiation monitoring station data was actually three decimal places greater than the numbers released to the public. If this is true, it constitutes a “national crime”, in Nishio’s words. […]

      I wouldn’t attribute much — if any — credence to ANYTHING that comes out of Tim Rifat’s mouth. Buncha gobbledegook from a guy who has a TON of stuff that he’d just LOVE to sell to you.

      Take this for example: “Only a Psi-Lord has this depth and breadth of experience and has preyed upon every evil to develop the Psychic Warrior Shaman Power. This means Tim Rifat knows how to exterminate every evil supernatural spirit, Satanist Illuminati instantly; since they are all in the Psi-Lord’s HyperMatrix the evil is trapped in a HyperMatrix controlled by the Logos, Source. Since Tim Rifat is an avatar of the Logos, Source, the evil is trapped in a killing field so it can be turned into Psychotronic Fuel. If you want to rid yourself of any evil then only a Psi-Lord will do!”

      Plenty more baloney to see here:

      • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

        Actually I bought one of Tim Rifat’s books from England a few years ago (its sale was banned in the US at that time). Actually he REFUTES the use of remote viewing and sensing of intelligence agencies which IMAGINE what is happening instead of employing actual human agents on the ground.

        Does this sound like what happened to start the Iraq War after 9/11? When intelligence is IMAGINED or CREATED to allow the US to preemptively attack an oil rich nation.

        Tim Rifat is for the truth including the use of microwave weapons to effect crowd control. These microwave weapons are considered “non-lethal” because death is a few years later and can’t then be absolutely attributed to their use.

      This video is truly horrifying and truthful. It should be required viewing for every politician and advocate of nuclear insanity. In college we had to watch movies of the humans starving in the concentration camps when they were emancipated at the end of WWII.

      The congressional hearings should require the viewing of this video in their investigation of the nuclear industry. Or did they sell their souls for campaign contributions. They should also be required to read “Faust.”

    What does 3 decimal place mean? 8microsievert = 800 microsievert?

  • radegan

    Let’s see – three decimal points. So if I announced your exposure at 1 anything – your real exposure was 1x10x10 or 100 anythings – rads, rems, sieverts, grays. And that goes for the release data too. Remember those terrible NILU animations, with North America covered in Iodine 131? Well, those projections were based on TEPCO info too.

    • radegan

      Whoops that’s only TWO decimal points – your exposure was 1000 anythings when then told you 1 anything.

    • Here is an example of the loony-tunes propaganda in Japan about radiation (from a “doctor” no less!):

      June 30th: “Radiation: Like an Angel’s Smile”

      http://ex-skf.blogspot.com/2011/06/radiation-like-angels-smile.html

      Conclusion: A small radiation is good for your health

      There are two sides to radiation.

      Small dose: Like an angel’s smile (even at 50 millisieverts/year)

      Large dose in short time: Like a devil’s violence

      From now on, the number of cancer patients in Fukushima will decrease.

      Food items with a small amount of radiation will fetch “premium”.

      Fukushima Prefecture will be the Number One health land in Japan, and people will flock to Fukushima.

      Our future is bright.

      EX-SKF says: “Like Disneyland, I suppose.”

      => However, even though radiation is supposedly like an “angel’s smile”:

      EX-SKF says: “Still, the doctor thinks that the community should do everything to protect children. His suggestion? Surround them with lead panels that will block radiation. (Lead poisoning anyone?)”

      What we can do for children:

      Remove surface soil from schoolyards.

      Put up lead panels on classroom walls.

      Shorten the commute time to and from school.

      Drive children to school, and school should allow cars inside the school gate.

      Shield children’s room in the house with lead.

      Shield children’s bed with lead.

      If these measures cannot avoid 1 millisievert/year radiation exposure, then consider relocating children.

      EX-SKF says: “It seems to me to be infinitely better not to use lead panels around children and simply relocate them first, but I am no doctor.”

      • milk and cheese milk and cheese

        The politest response I could make to this advice is too obscene to be printed here.

        • My response was laughter at the utter absurdity of this kind of “advice”. In any case, as we all know, the Japanese people are not fooling for such crapola, expressed by the 80%+ who do not believe the “official” statements about radiation.

    PU239 – I hope I read your (Omega-3) question properly.

    The n-3 fatty acids (or Omega-3 fatty acids) are excellent for your health. The health benefits are just too many to mention here. The older we get, the more we should have it.

    Few cautions. The liver oil maybe contaminated: mercury, etc. Always buy the molecularly distilled ones. COSTCO has them at excellent price point. Also the fish oil is blood thinner, so if you take many other supplement that are blood thinners (Vit. C Ginkgo, Flax Seed Oil etc.), a little caution is advised.
    I personally throw Vit. K into my supplement mix, and this allows me to have larger doses, without worrying about my blood getting too thin.

    • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

      Flax Seeds or Flax Seed Oil are extremely high in omega 3. Don’t need the fish oil.

      • TraderGreg

        The nutritional experts disagree on this issue, between themselves. There very good arguments on both sides of this issue. I am taking both (Fish Oil+Flax Seed Oil) in moderation.

      • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

        Pumpkin Seeds have the best balance between Omega 3 and Omega 6. Only Omega 3 over a long period of time can cause problems, but I don’t remember what it is.

    • milk and cheese milk and cheese

      You can also get omega 3 and 6 oil from hemp oil. I agree with Anne; I use flax and hemp, not fish.

  • TraderGreg

    PU239. There source of salmon, that I would still be comfortable would be Norwegian (COSTCO), Scottish, or New Zealand (Catalina Online Product). The New Zealand salmon, apparently has the highest Omega-3 content.

    • NoNukes NoNukes

      The discussion yesterday here about Norwegian nuclear contamination made me eye my bottle of Fish Oil in a whole new way.

  • Fall out man!

    Note also with farmed salmon (or any fish) you are at the mercy of just what they have been feeding the fish. In China for example there have been horrible reports of industrial waste fed to fish creating very toxic fish.

    New Zealand beef and lamb is raised on grass, and standards are high. Grass fed beef has higher omega 3 percentage content than the corn/soy/concrete pad fattened meat that people have to buy in Europe and the USA. In fact the omega 3 content in grass fed beef is higher than most fish. Of course, beef is also mercury free, and if its from New Zealand its “Fukushima free”. We have no Nuclear power plants here. Having said that, every few years the media and government start to push the idea of getting one 🙁

    I actually stopped eating much farmed salmon when many years ago one of our salmon farms was caught feeding food to their fish that was contaminated with heavy metals. I never trust farmed fish from anywhere now. If that could happen here, fish from other countries that is farmed will leave you “glowing”.

    Anyway, the healthiest food you can get in my view must be NZ Beef and Lamb. Its raised entirely on grass, higher in omega 3 than fish, definitely nuke free, and unlike fish, its mercury free as well.
