      sorry about that I just wanted to post and pressed the wrong button.

      Again looking at the data the uncertainty is greater than the reported number.

      e.g. Cs=137: 129,746 Bq +/- 580,492.5 Bq (is the uncertainty in milli Bq or micro Bq?

    So this is just the tip of the ice berg.

    I can’t imagine what the hospital maternity wards are going to be like this December and throughout 2012.

    This story simply confirms what most of us here have known and dreaded for the last 4 to 5 months….that our worst fears about all of this Fuku mess will be manifest.

  • I went to art school and everything, but I can’t get a grasp on all the numbers and readings and what they really mean. Is this “severe” internal exposure of the level where the victim is going to experience obvious and immediate radiation sickness? Or is it going to be cancer in five years?

      I was trying to answer this question last night, googling all sorts of things like toxicity of caesium 137, and this is what I found. Caesium isn’t as toxic as plutonium, which isn’t as toxic as pollonium, strontium, etc, and for different reasons… some emits higher energy radiation, some lower — some of it lodges in your thyroid glands, some in your bones — some of it stays in your body a while while some elements only stay for 60 days or so, which is the case with caesium 137.

      “Experiments with dogs showed that a single dose of 3800 μCi/kg (140 MBq/kg, or approximately 44 μg/kg) is lethal within three weeks.” — wikipedia

      That’s millions of Bq, so that’s about 500 times as much, but 3 weeks to death is pretty damn fast. My slightly educated guess is that whoever this reading came from will have cancer within a few years, based on this only being caesium, means they probably got a pretty good chunk of everything.

      It would be nice to look at a scale or something but I suspect the reason I can’t find anything like that on the net is because it’s hard to measure someones body well enough to apply to a scale. This number though, 252,422, is pretty high.

    A question about internal radiation. Can it be stopped or cured? We use chemo and other methods to stop cancers but what would the procedure be to stop an emitting internal source? This is going to be the big issue in the near future.

      The List of Easily Found and Usable Supplements for Counteracting Radioactive and Other Toxins.

      BAKING SODA: It’s What’s For Breakfast!
      SODIUM BICARBONATE: Start Each Day, by taking a “baking soda” drink, composed of 1 tsp of baking soda in 8 ounces of water for adults and ¼ tsp of baking soda in 4 ounces of water for children).
      Why? Ingesting sodium bicarbonate diminishes the severity of the changes produced by uranium in the kidneys. The kidneys are usually the first organs to show chemical damage upon uranium exposure.
      Oral doses of sodium bicarbonate help alkalize the urine and render uranium ions less toxic to the kidneys. Sodium bicarbonate binds with uranium and promotes its excretion from the body thus reducing the severity of the damage caused by radiation. Our Planet is Covered in Uranium dust thanks to DU Weapons.

      Sodium alginate (Alginic acid)
      Is found in KELP. Sodium alginate binds with radioactive strontium. Sodium alginate, a non nutritious extract from Kelp used to bind and detoxify heavy metals from the body (such as lead, mercury, cadmium, etc.), and AGAR, used as a thickening agent instead of gelatin or corn starch, will protect the human body from radiation effects. They also reduce absorption of strontium 90 by 50-80%.

      Kelp and Dulse, excellent natural sources of iodine, help protect against radioactive iodine, found mostly in milk. When the diet is adequately supplied with organic iodine (as in kelp), radioiodine is not as readily absorbed by the thyroid or the ovaries. Kelp contains 150,000 mcg of iodine per 100 grams (32 ounces). The recommended daily allowance of iodine is 150-200 mcg. A reasonable daily dose of kelp would be 1-2 teaspoons of granules or 5-10 tablets, (depending on their strength.) Red sea vegetables, such as Dulce, are best for binding plutonium.

      Chlorella is said to have a radioprotective effect because it is held to absorb gamma rays emitted from the radioactive particles in your body following contamination. Chlorella has the highest chlorophyll diet of any plant known. A green freshwater micro-algae which has even more chlorophyll than wheat grass plus 55-65% protein with 19 amino acids including all the essential ones. It’s an excellent source of beta-carotene, vitamins B-l, B-2, B-3, B-6, B-12, pantothenic acid, folic acid, biotin, PABA, inositol and vitamin C. Chlorella has more B-12 than liver. It also contains important minerals – iron, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, zinc, potassium, sulphur, iodine and trace amounts of manganese, sodium and chlorine.
      Chlorella comes in a small pill form which may be more palatable to some people.
      Spirulina is exceptionally good at detoxifying the body of heavy metals, providing up to a 50% decrease in side effects from radiation. 5 grams of spirulina powder per day is said to be protective against radiation sickness, according to the clinical experiences of doctors in Russia following Chernobyl. Spirulina accelerates the evacuation of radionuclides from the human body. It contains large amounts of beta carotene, a compound which prevents free radical damage to cells and is useful in treating and preventing cancer, and free iron, which helps people recover from the anemia which leads to a great many of the radiation-related problems following exposure.
      PECTIN
      For a deep and controlled detox, find pectin at the grocery store in the canning section. Check labels to make sure the pectin is free of MSG, And that it says MCP on the box. Modified Citrus Pectin.
      To use pectin, mix 2-4 teaspoons of dry pectin to an 8 oz. glass of grape juice once a day. Start with a lower dose of pectin until the body gets used to it and increase the amount slowly. Continue taking pectin for a period from 2 weeks to 6 months. Pectin actually pulls heavy metals from the body by binding with them.
      Eat several servings of high-pectin fruit daily for a natural, gentle detox. One of the best sources of pectin is green apples. Organic apple juice and unsweetened applesauce are also good sources of natural fruit pectin
      Pectin is found in the rinds of many fruits and vegetables. Excellent sources of pectin are bananas, apples, cabbage, okra, beets, grapes, carrots and all citrus fruit in the white part called the pith.

      Bee Pollen
      Bee Pollen may significantly lower the negative side effects of radiation exposure, in particular that of radium, x-rays and cobalt-60 radiotherapy. It contains all essential amino acids, vitamins A, D, E, K, C, bioflavanoids, B-complex (especially pantothenic acid and B-3), is high in nucleic acids, lecithin, cysteine, and 27 minerals including selenium, calcium, and magnesium. Bee pollen has 15% lecithin, which is useful in protecting against strontium-90, X-rays, iodine-131, krypton-85, ruthenium-106, zinc-65, barium-140, potassium-42, and cesium-137. Bee pollen specifically protects the gonads against the accumulation of iodine-131 and plutonium-239. Research has proven pollen to be beneficial in treating several diseases. 1 teaspoon daily, may slowly increase to 2 teaspoons.

      Calcium and Magnesium
      Each of these essential minerals can decontaminate a form of nuclear waste known as Strontium 90. Calcium supplementation can lower Strontium absorption by up to 90 percent. A variety of oral calcium supplements are available. One commonly used one is Tums. Calcium is an alkaline earth, as are strontium, barium, and radium, and a mass effect from calcium can interfere with absorption of the other alkaline earths, and compete with their deposition in bone. Calcium may prevent pre-cancerous cells from becoming cancerous.

      Vitamin C+ bioflavinoids and rutin
      A protective dose of between 500mg and 2,000 mg can counteract toxins and radiation.
      Always good advice. It is almost impossible to have too much of this nutrient. It does not stay in the body long and is depleted easily by stress and environmental pollutants. Required for a healthy Immune System.

      Beets
      Beets can help aid the body in rebuilding damaged haemoglobin. Studies have shown that eating a diet heavy in beet pulp the body was able to more effectively reduce the effects of radioactive cesium-137 and protects against the uptake of plutonium-238, -239, iron-55, and -59. Beet juice is particularly high in a specific anthocyan, which is active against cancer and leukemia.

      Miso, (Not Made in Asian countries.) – Made from naturally fermented soybeans, rice or barley. Miso is a superior source of usable whole protein, aids digestion and assimilation, is low in fats, has a wonderful salty flavor, promotes health and helps neutralize environmental pollution including radiation.. It was observed that the Japanese who ate Miso everyday did not die from radiation-induced cancer after the bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Do not boil Miso or you will kill its good properties, steep in hot water only.

      Chlorophyll-containing foods: (barley/wheat grass and chlorella.)
      Chlorophyll closely resembles human blood and is used to cleanse, detoxify, purify and heal many conditions. It retards bacterial growth, detoxifies heavy metals from the body, increases wound healing, detoxifies the liver and other organs, deodorizes the body, removes putrefactive bacteria from the colon, aids healing of 11 types of skin diseases, relieves ulcers, gastritis, pancreatitis and other inflammatory conditions, helps heal gum diseases, and inhibits radiation and the metabolic activation of many carcinogens. There are pure chlorophyll supplements available if you don’t like to eat grass or algae.

      Barley/Wheat grass is a totally balanced food. It contains all of the nutrients required for life; vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other proteins (amino acids), essential fatty acids and chlorophyll. Barley/wheat grass has thousands of living enzymes (a special protein). Enzymes are nature’s biological catalysts that initiate all the chemical transformations in the body. Over 3,000 enzymes have been identified. They are required for every transformation in the body – digestion, cell respiration, bodily movements, thinking processes, detoxification, cancer control, fat, protein and carbohydrate metabolism, etc.
      The normal daily amount of barley grass is 1-3 teaspoons (1 tsp = 2 grams). If you choose wheat grass (juice), start with one ounce daily and gradually increase to four or six ounces.

      Antioxidant Nutrients and enzymes, will nullify the free radicals created by the radiation exposure.

      ALL Colorful Fruits and Vegetables – V8 Juice is like an antioxidant in a can!
      You can usually identify foods that are rich in antioxidants by their color. Fruits and vegetables that are deep red, orange and yellow contain carotenoids like beta-carotene, lycopene and lutein. These antioxidants promote healthy cell development. Tomatoes, bell peppers, broccoli, sweet potatoes and dark-green leafy vegetables like spinach are all excellent sources of carotene. Some fruit juices also contain antioxidants, there is a direct relationship between the flavonoids found in Concord grape juice and the reduction of oxidative stress, or cell damage, due to free radicals in the body.

      Dark Chocolate – Unprocessed chocolate and cocoa have significant antioxidant levels.(Also Coffee!)

      Soy – Soy contains three antioxidants: daidzein, genistein and glycitein.

      Garlic, Onions, and Ginseng are also protective against radiation due to antioxidants.

      Chaparral (herb) contains a potent anti-oxidant known as NGRA. It was one of the few plants to survive atomic testing in Nevada.

      Yerba Mate Delivers More Antioxidants And Nutrients Than ANY Other Natural Drink!
      There are 196 active chemical compounds found in the Yerba Mate plant. Yerba Mate contains 11 Polyphenols. Polyphenols are a group of phytochemicals. Phytochemicals are compounds that act as powerful antioxidants and are considered to exhibit anti-cancer effects in mammals by strengthening natural defenses and protecting against cellular destruction (i.e. lycopene in tomatoes, flavonoids in blueberries, and isoflavones in soy). In addition to polyphenols, Yerba Mate leaves contain saponins Saponins are phytochemicals that have been found to specifically stimulate the immune system. They possess significant anti-inflammatory properties. Yerba Mate possesses up to 90% more metabolism-boosting nutrients than green tea! Vitamins: A, C, E, B1, B2, Niacin (B3), B5, B Complex. Minerals: Calcium, Manganese, Iron, Selenium, Potassium, Magnesium, Phosphorus. Additional Compounds: Fatty Acids, Chlorophyll, Flavonols, Polyphenols, Trace Minerals, Antioxidants, Pantothenic Acid and 15 Amino Acids. Yerba Mate contains “practically all of the vitamins necessary to sustain life.”
      Activated Charcoal
      Another wonderful substance heralded for its absorption properties. Studies show that charcoal possesses the unique ability to neutralize radiation, and that 10 grams of charcoal can neutralize up to 7 grams of toxic material.

      Cold-pressed Organic Vegetable Oils
      Oils such as sesame oil, extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil also help pull radiation out. Sources recommend drinking 4 ounces of oil if you have been exposed. Not only do the lipids in the oils bind the toxins, they also offer a protective layer on cellular membranes.

      Organic Brewers Yeast
      Sources recommend using organic Brewers use for prevention against radiation exposure. In terms dosage, 5 mg. to 15 mg. should be given to children, and 25 mg. to 50 mg. can be given to adults. For cases of direct exposure, these amounts can be doubled, or tripled. Brewer’s yeast may aid the body in both repair after exposure, as well as protection.

      Clays
      There are many types of clays that bond to nuclear waste from the body. They include Kaolin, Red Clay, Bentonite, Fuller’s Earth, and Montmorillonite. French Green Clay is another absorptive clay shown to possess the ability to rid radiation, toxic metals and chemical residues from the human body. The former Soviet government added this type of clay to chocolate bars that were then given to citizens to help remove radioactive waste from the system. Be sure it is from a pure source as many clays contain high amounts of Arsenic.
      Alkalize Your Diet and Eat Low on the Food Chain is a Good Protection Principle. If the pH of the cellular fluid is slightly more alkaline then it will protect the cells against radiation. An alkalizing diet, which is also a live-food, plant-source diet is going to serve us best in these times.
      Cruciferous vegetables
      (Cabbage, Brussels Sprouts, Broccoli, Turnips, Spinach, Cauliflower, and Greens such as Kale) This family of vegetables contain substances that inhibit breast and colon cancer cell growth. Cabbage and other cruciferous vegetables also contain dithiolthiones, a non-toxic group of compounds that have antioxidant, anti-cancer and anti-radiation properties. Sources include dark, leafy vegetables (broccoli, spinach, kale, Swiss chard, romaine, endive, chicory, escarole, watercress, collard, mustard and dandelion greens), dark yellow and orange vegetables (carrots, sweet potatoes, yams, pumpkins, winter squash) and fruits (cantaloupe, apricots, peaches, papayas and watermelon). Be careful where your greens come from, S. Hemisphere or greenhouses are best!

      THYME TEA. Often used as a remedy after x-rays. Just steep one tablespoon of thyme per pint of hot water for 20 minutes, then cool and strain.

      BLACK TEA (CONTAINING TANNIN) AND HONEY. Used for radiation protection in China.

      A Last Note:
      Be very sure of your sources of Bentonite and Zeolites as many contain very high levels of Arsenic. They may only warrent use if you know for certain that you have been ‘dosed.’
      Good Health everyone,
      Back to work…

      DETOX BATHS

      One pound of bicarbonate of soda (Baking Soda) and 1 pound of sea salt (or salts of magnesium) in a bath to remove uranium from the kidneys and total system for heavy exposure is also recommended. It is also believed to draw Cobalt 60 out of the body.

      A Chlorox Bleach bath is believed to remove heavy metals (a serious problem in nuclear reactor accidents) and chemical contaminants. Dr. Parcells, an early pioneer woman chiropractor used to recommend the Chlorox bath for radiation sensitivity; she passed on a couple years ago at age 103.
      Chlorox Bath Instructions: Just add 1 cup of regular Clorox bleach to a tub of hot water — as hot as can be tolerated — and once again soak in it until the water becomes cool or body temperature. Don’t wash off for at least 4 hours and make sure you’re using sufficient water. Use a lot of water and do not increase the amount of bleach.

      Clay
      Many good purified types can be found on the market and used with success. Pulls out toxins.

      Epsom Salts (Magnesium Sulfate)
      Detoxification Your body can accumulate a residue of medications and impurities from the environment. Soaking in a bath of Epsom salt can pull these toxins from the cells of your body through reverse osmosis. This is a process where salt is drawn from your body and the toxins come with it. It can also soothe your nerves by balancing your electrolytes.

      chemo doesnt cure cancer. take care of words used and u’ll see it.
      cancer is just another face to AIDS, as your immune system becomes so weak it can’t deal with cancerous cells. u are producing hundreds per days since u are born u know, and ur immune sys correctly deal with them.

      and with (heavy) radioactiv contamination u just generate that much cancerous cells than usual that even an healthy ISys can’t cope with.

            The solar flares threat generated a suggestion about buying huge industrial surge protectors for electrical substations mentioned by many scientists and nuclear engineers (Arnie being most prominent). The high cost (over $100,000 I believe I read…maybe $200,000 per device) made the electrical producing companies reluctant to invest in this beyond basic design situation.

            That also chips away at the old saw of “electricity too cheap to meter” for nuclear plants I guess if they were asked to pay for the devices.

      I think it’s a genuine ‘black swan’ event. The early MSM coverage would have been censored if it had been intentional.

      Like the flight crew on an airliner, TPTB simply believe that the threat from the event is less than the threat from the passengers getting into a panic. However this assessment was initially based on misleading information from TEPCO and poor advice from nuclear experts who were unable to get their head around such a massive failure of their favourite piece of kit. Since then they have held to their original course of action in the face of mounting evidence to the contrary, probably more out of desperation and habit than anything else. Remember that their children will be breathing, drinking and eating this crap also.

      A sudden global loss of faith in the nuclear industry as a safe green option would create such enormous repurcussions that they must continue to believe that, like the best case scenario reports of collateral damage from Chernobyl, only a handful of people will eventually be seriously affected by the Fukushima meltdowns. They would be reading our posts with this belief foremost in their mind, and see the gradual spread of consternation as unfounded panic threatening the status quo. The alternative is just too ugly for them to contemplate.

      Of course, the other explanation is that they are simply trying to kill us all :)

        I think that there was advice from international nuclear experts as what to do to handle the situation, but that the Japanese government or TEPCO didn’t follow the advice, probably because it would by extremely costly in terms of both money and people.

        But the advice would have to have been followed immediately. Later on it was too late.

        I have seen videos where individuals have said that only the bare minimum was being done. Or that they were trying to save the reactors. Or that using salt water (which is very corrosive) was a Hail Mary pass.

        Also a lot of information was kept secret by the Japanese because they still hoped to sell their nuclear wares overseas. I hope they will not be able to sell nuclear to any one.

          My guess is still that Appendix B says that if you have multiple meltdowns there is bugger all to be done except a bit of mitigation theatre.

    Be Still My Beating Heart I am confused about the food list you gave. If all of these food are being grown in irradiated soil and being nourished with contaminated water how are they going to help?

      Remember even Chernobyl was a crap shoot.
      This field bad, that one not so much.
      Without proper and local testing none of us know for sure what is in our own back yards.
      I know I have cases of pickled beets still from last year.
      I know that some of the Produce is available from the S hemisphere that people here seem to think is cleaner.
      I know that much can be purchased from commercial green houses or grown in your own green house.
      I know that Cold frames are easy to construct and often windows can be found for free to make them out of.
      I know that houses with good exposure can grow things indoors if a gentle breeze from a fan provides resistance to the plants as they grow.
      My own garden is all grown in pots. I have over 2000#s of soil in pots. It is my portable garden. I rent and can take it with me when I go. I have Blue berries, strawberries, raspberries, a dwarf apple tree, beans, carrots, summer squash, cucumbers, peas and a lot of perennial herbs and spices.
      I have to water my garden even on days when it rains because so little gets in the actual pot. I heavily fertillized this year with the blue crystals from miracle grow that contain the phosphorous and potassium that I wish for my plants to absorb and it also contains boron.
      Come winter I am attaching a tarp and or plastic to the fence and tenting my perennials from the winter rain and snows, and I know I will need to water them. I am covering all the annual pots of soil with tarps.
      I don’t know how long I will be able to keep this up or if all food will forever be poison or if some of it is still okay…
      I do not know that.
      However, I believe that we are going to keep eating food right?
      So it may as well be ones that have some glimmer of hope to nourish us, no?
      Perhaps it is time for indoor grow lights and hydroponics NOW!
      We can roll over and give up, or we can fight to our last breath.
      The supplements I mentioned will soon be bought out. If you want them get last years while they are still here.They also will help eliminate the bad stuff, while hopefully your body absorbs some of the good.
      If I think of something more, I’ll let you know.
      Take care?

        Tomatoes, artichokes and onions grow well in pots also.
        Oddly enough I cannot seem to easily grow beets but I can grow carrots. Might try again.
        Also As you asked, the water is a major issue.
        It will be up to each of us to find and/or purify the water we use.
        BIG challenges. A really deep well in a perfectly placed spot sounds really good right now.
        And the last thing.
        Sprouts of seeds and grains can replace the green leafys and many other vegetables.
        I wish us all Health and Wellness.

      If everything is radiated, as it already was from previous years, you can choose the best options. Beef is about 20 times worse for you than any vegetable or fruit. Anything in a can will give you excess estrogen. Milk is likewise much more toxic than any vegetable or fruit. Organic is better than GMO or pesticide grown.

      Take the knowledge you have and make the best choices you can. That’s all anyone can do. Doing something will be better than hiding your head in the sand. There are no guarantees in this world. We come into it knowing that we will leave and we don’t know when that will be or the circumstances surrounding our exit. That has not changed with Fukushima or the next, or the next disaster.

        Thank You Anne for that reminder…

          I would recomed your actions regarding food production, everybody can learn to grow vegies. And the amount of space aviable is not a problem, just use your imagination.
          And if you live in the same area, it will also clean the air inside, they breath in CO2 and emitts O2.
          All accumulating is mainly consntrated in Fat, or the Fatlayer in all creatures, from Fish(be cearfull they tend to be highly contagious) and meat, and so on also wildlife games from birds to Elks.
          So vegis has to be the main food for now.

          The second moust important issue is water.
          We as humans tend to drink to mutch, and can easily reduse our consumption.
          And to maintain a low level of radiation, the water feed into the garden must be as low as posible. Keap it in mind.

          And many reports regarding antiocsydandts is leaving the moust effectiv source of them all mutch higher than Te and even Blueberrys, Coffee.

          Right now your/we are on our own, and cant rely on any govm. help or suport.
          Its allready a proven fact.
          And if I was living in the Western side of the Rockys I would be considering to start to prepare and learn to grow and do it now.

          As time goes and the “vulcanoes” in Fuko isnt stopped, the consequencess will eventualy lead to a reality where, to late means to late.
          You mait survive, but what is done to the childrens world is a totaly different question, and right now the situation look Grim, and the prospects are even Grimmer.

          Peace

          PS: go to Swedish site about fallout and its consequencess on the country and the comclusions from their findings.
          They are usaly also avaiable in English.

    • I am truly amazed at the fighting spirit of the great soul! Follow the Lord, follow your conscience and you are protected, so is the way of the good life. There is always a filter in yourself which tells which way is health. Thank God for the infinite non-homogeneity of life!

    Maybe the Japanese gov have decided that if it’s too late for japan why bother trying to fix it at all! The nuclear industry/ other states can’t go in and take control because
    1. they would be admitting that nuclear is BAD and
    2. Who would they get to go there now.…it’s a suicide mission now.
    3. There’s not enough money in the world( ask Obama)

    so have a cup of coffee, have a bleach/Epsom salt/ bi carb bath, cook your veggies eat these and some chocolate then go to sleep and dream of how our world could have been!
