Radioactive ash found in waste plants near Tokyo, AFP, July 12, 2011:

Japanese waste incineration plants near Tokyo [200 km from Fukushima plant] have found high levels of radiation in ash, and officials said Tuesday it may be from garden waste […]

[T]he radioactive ash collected in late June and early July, at concentrations of up to 70,800 becquerels per kilogramme […]

The level is far higher than the government’s 8,000-becquerel per kilogramme limit […]

    The “waste incineration” in Tokyo – wonder if it was dead bodies from Fuku area.

  • “The level is far higher than the government’s 8,000-becquerel per kilogramme limit”

    8,000-becquerel per kilogramme limit “GOOD GREIF”

      WOW!

      What a great research project.

      First establish radiation levels.

      Next wait for cancers to show up.

      Accumulate data over time.

      Summarize results to show how the two correlate.

      Hitler did similar things and he was called a monster, a devil, pure EVIL! Today we call it our government tending to the needs of the flock.

      What a joke.

    If the ash is radio-active what about the smoke leaving smoke-stack?

    Right now we and NAto are DELIBERATELY contaminating Libyan land with daily dirty bombing — uranium depleted missiles — In the name of liberating Libyan people…

    I don’t want to provide any special links, because this issue is very related to very political things, but just search the internet, Libya 2011 depleted uranium missiles. To sum up, here is an abstract:

    On April 18, former Pentagon Depleted Uranium Project director Dr. Doug Rokke told Russia Today that DU struck areas can’t be decontaminated, saying it has a half-lfe of 4.5 billion years. As a result, it’s called “the silent killer that will never stop killing.”

    He also said he “was watching ABC News (on April 15) and, lo and behold, there was a DU impact. It burned and burned and burned.”

    During the 1991 Gulf War, Rokke was ordered to lie about its use and effects. It damaged his health, and most of his crew died from exposure. Nonetheless, “DU is so good against all types of targets that (the Pentagon) will never give it up.”

    This is my video analysis that shows the park asuperdry got the soil from as well as the report. I have been so busy I didn’t even know enenews had this yet!. We just want to get this out(I have been working with asuperdry on many things in Japan):
