Freaky Mutant Bugs Found

[...] The teachers didn’t come out and blame the radiation levels from Fukushima but there have been mounting cases of insect mutations found in the radiation zones in the region. [...]

Via: http://sankei.jp.msn.com/region/news/121002/chb12100221450001-n1.htm

Mr. Shimizu, an expert on local animals comments on the beetles found in [...] The bugs were collected in Ibaraki Prefecture at Ushiku city (translation by Fukushima Diary):

  • Because of chromosomal abnormality, you often see the stag beetle of right/left half body as different sex, but I never expected such a one of male head with female body exists [middle], I was rather shocked
  • You can’t see it more than once in a life
  • Probably this is the first discovery of the stag beetle that has separated sex such clearly

  • Bugs, (insects), will be one of the first signs.

    Insects are sensitive “bioindicators”.

    Cornelia Hesse-Honegger discovered a shocking degree of deformation in bugs from FALLOUT areas in Sweden. From 1986 until 2007, she systematically examined the morphological appearance of various types of true bugs around the world.

    –> important note:
    This study also revealed that it is not the distance from a nuclear facility that determines the damage, but rather the wind direction and local topology.

    How much radiation is harmful to ANY living creature?
    We've known the basics for a long time.

      Just collected second year crop of mutated oranges and lemons. Will be posting pics to Photobucket soon. The mutations are occuring in much greater numbers this year. I'm estimating 3% are deformed. Difficult w/o taking an actual count of fruit on any given tree.

      Am guessing the large number found on this particular tree may be due to water collecting near the tree. There is a drainage ditch which runs past the tree.

      The tree is in Vacaville, California, which is about 45 miles west of Sacramento, in the Central Valley. Interestingly enough, the mutated fruit seems to have dropped off the tree before the healthy fruit. Perhaps it's nature's way of ensuring the mutants don't propogate themselves by germinating at the proper time. Just conjecture on my part ….

      Haven't seen deformed or mutant insects yet, although there seem to be far fewer insects and birds overall.

        Link to pics will be posted at Forum. Have noticed some other things similar to Japan, like dying foliage on azaleas, right next to healthy flowers. Lots of our trees died since 3/11/11 for unexplained reasons. Well, we were downwind of Fukushima for the entire Northern Hemisphere winter in 2011. Go figure.

    Man must stop wrecking nature. Stop it already!

    This is another area in which the 'forest can not be seen for the trees'..
    How many studies will go on here?
    How many 'astounding' discoveries…before mutation…deleterious
    mutation.. will be recognized…with the estimated effects based on the actual emissions from Fukushima?
    In the science community…this should open a whole new consideration of ethics among their own.
    Radiation is capable of mutation well beyond bio-tech labs.
    Altering the natural processes…tends to have negative effects.
    They need to learn from the master..

    PS.I do encourage the portion of the science community that is going to look for answers and not be bought off…and to look into the answers.
    Because the community that is funded to cover this up..starts at the top.
    They know the effects..and this is their will upon the people.

    Small future note..This is their will upon the fauna and flora..the whole natural world.
    They have no right.

      They have no right Heart , except when you consider "the right of the strongest aka survival of the strongest , meanest decievious selfisch bully on a powertrip" a "RIGHT" . Capitalisme in its current form sure seems to promote that thinking in to infinity . They resist regulations because it hinders the "state of bliss" of anarchy the rich sickos aka mengele's enjoy doing their "legion" thing .

        They have no right, and they have NO heart. Right, Heart?

        And D.I.D., I just can't get over your name. Perfect.

          "Perfect" does not exist in Nature/Reality , otherwise constant evolution would not happen , but thanks HoTaters :)
          I remember when fukus happend i was zapping the news channels and i heard a reporter saying something like : "but one has to drink the whole ocean before any health impact could result from this "
          There i knew they where going the lying route .., i was not willing to go with that program..but a lot of people would not know they were being lied to to death..

            I feel the universe is perfect.
            The sun comes up unattended..the moon…in the right spot..the blue waves of the seashore..the breathing to the trees on a summer night.
            Our pristine galaxy..is spinning in space.
            Time and space..all arranged..just so.
            This is not the workings of Man.
            Man's attempt to control the 'doings' of Earth..will be the undoing of the planet.

              I subjectively agree Heart , but in this Universe/Multyversum everything is build out of something smaller and part of something bigger , dead or alive does not matter . And everything is constantly evolving/aging/changing/transforming in to something else , in its own timescale and place in the interconnected matrix.
              Static mathematical perfection is a non-connected standalone academic reality , not a real life thing imho .

      Speaking of which, I found a couple of very strange looking carrots in my garden today. Next time they will be photographed. I'm in California. One of the carrots had a little bitty carrot growing out of its very thin tip. It was obviously very deformed. We had some very strange looking vegetables. Many of them had dead spots right in the middle of their skins.
