American Genetic Association, Aug 14, 2014: [S]tudies are now beginning to reveal serious biological effects of the Fukushima radiation [...] A series of articles summarizing these studies has now been published in the Journal of Heredity. These describe widespread impacts, ranging from population declines to genetic damage [...] Common to all of the published studies is the hypothesis that chronic (low-dose) exposure to ionizing radiation results in genetic damage and increased mutation rates [...] Hayashi et al. 2014 [...] documented the effects of radiation on rice [...] After three days, a number of effects were observed [...] Taira et al. 2014 [...] examined the response of the pale grass blue butterfly [...] They found size reduction, slowed growth, high mortality and morphological abnormality [...] A review of genetic and ecological studies for a range of other species [...] revealed significant consequences of radiation. Population censuses of birds, butterflies, and cicadas at Fukushima showed major declines attributable to radiation exposure.

Journal of Heredity (Oxford Journals), Sept. – Oct. 2014: The massive release of ionizing radiation to areas near nuclear power plants may cause major irreversible shifts in ecosystems and severe damage to human health, and understanding the risks and quantifying the outcomes of nuclear accidents is of global concern. [This] collection, the first of such a series for Journal of Heredity, covers 3 diverse taxa: rice plants, butterflies, and birds.

Dr. Tim Mousseau, Univ. of South Carolina, Aug. 2014: A growing body of empirical results from studies of birds, monkeys, butterflies, and other insects suggests that some species have been significantly impacted by the radioactive releases related to the Fukushima disaster [...] There is an urgent need for greater investment in basic scientific research of the wild animals and plants of Fukushima.

Dr. Joji Otaki, Univ. of the Ryukyus (Japan), Aug. 2014: Non-contaminated larvae fed leaves from contaminated host plants collected near the reactor showed high rates of abnormality and mortality.

    To predict recovery times? That presupposes there is an end to the constant release of radiation and that it can be eradicated from the environment once it is there. Since neither possibility is realistic, what does "recovery" mean? Nothing in this context.

    "major irreversible shifts in ecosystems"

    The entire Northern Pacific Ocean Ecosystem is in a state of collapse.
    We are seeing evidence that Fukushima radiation is causing the decline of plant and animal species across the board, from single cell plants and animals, all the way up to top preditors.
    Nuclear contamination from Fukushima will last for millions of years.
    We, on the other hand, won't.

    Can't you feel a great unwinding in process?

    • Dana is right. I live about 100 paces (1 min. walk) from the ocean (Brentwood Bay, BC = Vancouver Island). Eerily quiet, almost no birds, little life on the shore. Some sick-looking moon-jellyfish, some sea lettuce. Very few seagulls, one or two crows. (We did see one seagull, mournfully staring at the mudflats – looking for somewhere to stick its beak, something to eat).

      Used to see stellars jays around here. Disappeared about three years ago and never seen them since.

          No wasps at all this year, or flies. Still see some humming birds, but very few. I filled up a bird feeder about 3 months ago. It's still full.

          Stupidly, I went swimming in the ocean about two weeks ago, before this info came to light. No more ocean swimming for me.

          Still some people near the docks, on their big white boats, lounging, sipping wine, as if nothing has happened.

          Heart, that's very disheartening. Yes, seeing the pink, greenish, yellow, black bottom clouds daily. Not a lot of insects here, lots of dead birds everywhere.

          May I ask what general vicinity (locale) you're in?

          Curious to know why your area is so affected. Have the impression you live east of me (I'm on the West Coast).

          Lots of insect and plant, bird mutations here. Need to start making photo documentation of the animals and plants. Lately have been too busy taking cloud pics.

          There is some very, very abnormal stuff going on with the weather here. Someone I know who lives in Reno said it has been raining there almost daily. It's summer, and it's normally very dry there (high desert).

          Watch the line of geoengineered clouds form up every afternoon, with a big black smudge all along the bottom. Low altitude clouds (below 20,000 feet), with thunderheads forming above the smudges. They move eastward toward the Sierras around dusk.

          Odd times in which we're living.

          Hope you're finding joy in your life despite the discouraging things going on around.

          I'm inundated with insects and other animals in New Mexico. I have bird feeders and the other night I was making noises near a large tree and disturbed many birds who started rustling around in the tree. I didn't know that so many roosted there at night. They are all over during the day. We have mud wasps that are not taking over all of the dirt areas. Lizards and snakes, flies, wasps, small birds, humming birds and grackles and doves. We started off with a dove pair and now four years later their babies and their babies still live here. I don't know why we have so many here, but I'm glad that we do.

            I go out walking to take pictures of birds, flowers, landscapes, maybe rabbits and squirrels, here in the downtown Abq area. The kingbirds and swallows seem to have left for southern climes now (that's normal), allowing insects populations to recover a bit. I'm still seeing unusual birds (like stellar jays in a downtown park), which is nice, and hummingbirds are still here, though more females than males. We've had more rain this summer, more a normal monsoon when previous years it was drier. Most of today (8/22) it was gray with a gentle, windless rain, nice and cool (70sF). I'll check the big weekly growers market tomorrow for anything unusual. Last week a plant seller said sadly he had seen no preying mantises yet in his garden this year. I'll be able to tell him I have seen plenty of bees. Fewer cockroaches inside, but that's okay. Cooper's hawks are nesting all over the city. Despite what some say, New Mexico seems to enchant a lot of animals.

          "If Princess' new Japan departures have a flaw, it's that many of them take place during the country's rainy season of June and early July, when the weather can be dreary. "

          "Another drawback to the sailings is that the ships sometimes arrive at terminals far from city centers. In ports such as Kagoshima, Princess has had to arrange lengthy shuttle rides for passengers to reach interesting areas. When combined with relatively tight port calls — in Beppu, passengers get just 61/2 hours on land — the result can be limited time to explore."

          These are the only two drawbacks mentioned. Can you think of anything else? Anything?

      Well, they've always paid scant attention to the anomalies that may send shock waves throughout their intellectually conceived paradigm. The environment controls every outcome in human genetics. This environment is everything you sense internally and externally, including the imperceptible particles that can slip under the radar.
      The things that encourage growth like nutrients, the cells love, and things that destroy tissues, the cells are afraid of. In between these two opposite there exists a wide spectrum of dynamics which make up the human personality, where insanity and diseases manifest. Put a threat in the environment the people will respond with fear and the collective goal becomes survival of the group. Using the standard memory banks, all wild variable are considered and put into action by priority with consideration of time and ability. This is how humans were able to conquer the world. Out of necessity, the mind was able to conceive atomic energy, and reason their way through the mathematics of gravitation and electromagnetism. Neighbor assists the survival dynamic of neighbor, Man and Women exist for the benefit of humanity. Peace to all.

    "One might think that in forests far away from Chernobyl that these rodents would react positively to these improved radiological conditions. But the mutations and the genome fragility have increased over 22 generations in populations of voles studied by Goncharova and Ryabokon in Belarus. These geneticists have observed the opposite of an adaptation to radioactivity: an increase in genomic instability in all populations studied, from 30 to 300 kilometres away from the stricken reactor. In the least contaminated zones, near Minsk, the genomic instability is slow, but it will persist and worsen up to 22 generations later."

    "At Fukushima, genomic instability needs to be followed up over generations, starting with grandparents and parents, then the children and grand children. After a year, the damage caused by the mixture of internal and external radiation to children should be measured, by comparison with data from before 2011 in the same areas, or by comparing data with communities further away, that were spared the radioactive fallout. Birthweight, incidence of stillbirth, perinatal mortality up to 28 days, birth deformities (heart problems should be investigated later), and among the genetic diseases, Down’s syndrome, should all be studied. Brain damage with tumours, and developmental retardation which, like decreases in IQ, will become evident at school age."

    The 1900 rediscovery of Gregor Mendel's experiments influenced thinking about evolution by mutation. These ideas were further developed by cytological investigation that lead to the chromosomal theory of heredity. Nobelist Hermann J. Muller at Indiana University in 1958 researched fruit fly (Drosphilia) genetics and mutations induced by x-rays and later by others on chemical induction.

    Mendelian and biometric approaches to heredity and evolution were closely tied and induction of mutations by radiation and chemical induction led to biochemical investigation of gene action, shifting attention to the chemistry of the gene. The realization that the gene is DNA Was followed quickly by the deciphering of the genetic code and gave rise to molecular interpretations of mutations.

    I studied gene structure, comparative mutagenesis, developmental genetics, and human genetics at UCLA under Elof Alex Carlson, a student of Dr. Muller, back in the 60s.

    Epidemiogist Alice Steward in 1957 discovered the pre-natal pelvic x-rays increased cancer rates in children. From that point on, it was impossible for many physicians and scientists to approve of nuclear energy and/or the indiscriminate use of x-rays.

    All of this information was available before Fukushima Daiichi was even built. A single meltdown will cause genetic mutations, cancer, and other health problems. The food chain and plankton oxygen system in the oceans is now permanently affected.

    So why did they take this risk?

        How do TPTB not be depopulated themselves? They could go underground for several weeks in a nuclear war, but polluting the ocean would not spare them from the ill-effects when they emerged from their bunkers.

        Depopulation would be better accomplished by biological means with pathogens where those "elites" would have the antidotes, vaccines, or cures. Neutron weapons might work. I do not see that a Fukushima-type event would be their preferred means of "thinning the heard." Swine flu, ebola virus or avian flu, etc. Would leave more of the environment intact for them.

            First you have to realize that their is a cabal that owns and controls everything in the world. They have done this through central banking. If you don't understand how that works you will never see the big picture. There are plenty that do not want you to know how money is created and who it is that owns the Federal Reserve Central Bank. And the history of central banks around the world and here in the USA. The war for independence and war of 1812 were over central banking, which in essence we did not win because we have central banking now, which is the third time in Americas history. All of this should be taught in school, but none of it is, because they own that too. It is called fractional reserve banking and is laid out in "Modern Money Mechanics". This system has enslaved mankind, and mankind does not even know it. This info is the most important info that you will ever know, if you want to know anything that matters. Makes clear why the media lies about everything, why the government is the enemy and why we are always at war, which is another secret in itself. Do you have 3 minutes?

              "The powers of financial capitalism had a far-reaching aim – nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements [BIS] in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations … Each central bank sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

                    itsnuclear, still, are you completely controlled? Probably not. Believe me, I get that it is very bad. But life is bigger than they are. Still they can destroy life, but that is not the same as controlling it. Maybe a desperate attempt.

                      Every single dollar goes into their pockets, and they made the money out of thin air, and we will never even pay off the interest, to even begin to pay off the money that was borrowed. They own you and they own me. Federal income tax is not even legal, there is no law that says you have to pay it. But try and not pay it and see where you end up, because they own you.

    "There is an urgent need for greater investment in basic scientific research of the wild animals and plants of Fukushima."

    Isn't a bit of intuition much faster and cheaper? I mean, just a bit? Scientists aren't like us, and are more like celibate priests who, heaven forbid, can't impregnate a qualified personal opinion? Or like the priests, they'll just bugger the kids? And then we're supposed to be like the Catholic Church, allow years to do the study, years to write it up, years to peer review, and all the while it just keeps happening?

    How much can be spoken of one who has to be convinced to do what is obviously the correct thing?

    Sorry. I guess I'm not in a good mood today. Seems I'm haunted by my former rational self today, the one who suffers little foolishness when there's work to be done; the one who's had six people stand around tapping their feet while I'm the only one willing to pick up a hammer, all so they can have the final input to judge whether what I've done made them money and paid their salaries. "Oh, that's not my job…" How much skill does it take to use a hammer?

    The studies are great, but they've been done folks, albeit the intelligent way, in a lab and, except for Chernobyl and others, not in the wild. In light of the urgency of the situation, not an appropriate response. Who can really say "Oh, we didn't know…"?

      Shaker,
      Last week-end I attended a Conference. At lunch on the Saturday, a doctor with a keen interest in Physics, out of the blue mentioned a new process for radioactive waste, which he remarked was going to provide help in counteracting radioactive waste in the ocean. I have just done an online search, not sure whether he was talking about this:

      "Nuclear Waste Neutralization Using Hydroxy Gas

      A process for neutralizing radioactive wastes such as Plutonium and Americium is demonstrated using Hydroxy Gas in combination with a metal matrix. Hydroxy gas is an energized form of water vapor that exhibits some very strange properties including the ability to sublimate tungsten (10,000 F) with a flame that burns strangely cool (130 C). The pyrochemical process evidently causes low energy induced nuclear reactions resulting in stable end products through subcritical cold fission, nuclear spallation and accelerated decay reactions. Theory on the anomolous process is based on the radically new Hydreno Atomic model, which can logically explain a broad range of atomic data that is currently devoid of fundamental understanding under the conventional Planetary model."

    Health impact for millions of Japanese, Pacific coast population and North American western coasts, and the rest of North America and the world (greatest exposure to less exposure) HAS BEEN occurring since
    11 March 2011. It is interesting to note that the scope of damage is being leaked a little at a time… and demonstrates the frog in a pot of ever-increasing hot water….
    the water has been boiling since 311 and he 'global frog' – the great public — doesn't realize how bad it already is!!

    Genetic instability is, in human terms, forever. Survival of species is in question now, including our own, of course.

    “The evidence from the Chernobyl affected territories reveals the real-world consequences of a simple and terrible new discovery: that the effects of low dose internal irradiation cause subtle changes in the genome that result in an increase in the general mutation rate. … first seen in cells in the laboratory. The Chernobyl evidence, shows that this seems to be true for all species, for plants and animals and humans. It has profound implications that go beyond radiation protection and risk models."

    History will remember fondly those of you here who tried to tell the world of their research, thoughts, wisdom and prayers and no one would listen. The message was clear from the very beginning, that an ELE was upon us and ENE newsers rocked to get the word out. Future generations, if possible, will wonder why they didn't try and stop this nuclear nightmare from happening.

    This article is confirmation of the effects of Fukushima radiation and the crippling effects of acidification that has severely compromised the biology of the worlds oceans. Radiological biomagnification will slowly affect us all in the years to come. Those who promoted and allowed this tragic event to occur will also suffer the same fate.

    Your do nothing government and their paid scientists will not tell you the truth because if they did there would be mass panic and an economic collapse world wide.

    I ask all who read this, that only you can stop and mitigate this insanity that was placed upon your shoulders. Do everything possible to alert your family and loved ones what is going on and remember to hold your head above the fray. Be one step ahead of those who panic or they will run you over. This is war.

      I'm happy when I can help someone with understanding the radioactivity implications but I don't let the blank stare people waste my precious time too long or get me down. I keep them in mind. There will always be a better time or new ways to be heard by them later, perhaps when they're experiencing their own little wake up call and are in the first OMG! stage.

    • I think the ELE will unfold across generations as eco-systems and genomes collapse and as wars are waged out of rage and desperation, accelerating the process.

      I don't think we will see a massive, sudden extinction unless a nuclear war is waged by great powers or a solar flare takes down enough transformers to cause widespread nuclear meltdowns and pool fires.

      Yet, although time remains, the collapse seems inevitable and the likelihood of it taking every last one of us grows daily with inaction on critical environmental catastrophes, especially Fukushima & Hanford.

      I used to have hope. Now I am just repelled by the deliberate lies spun by our so-called leaders to hide eco-collapse, despite obvious evidence that marine and fresh water fauna are in serious distress, especially along the North American coast.

      In many cases, bio-accumulation is faster in water, but the process of bioaccumulating rads will assault us as well.

      We will be sicker and we will transmit more acquired mutations and epigenetic changes to our children, burdening them and their offspring.

      Asking them, or any other involved athority, is fruitless.

      Nevertheless, I understand why you continue to do it.

      For those who want to know where the cores are, I will be the one to tell you honestly.

      Some of the cores are in the sky,
      Some of the cores are in my eye.

      Some of the cores are in the water,
      Some of the cores are in my daughter.

      Some of the cores are in the ground,
      And some of the cores will never be found.

      CCCC

      Asking any involved party to hand over evidence–let alone spend money and and time conducting research and investigations–is like telling a mining company that they can't proceed without them conducting an "environmental impact statement". People are begging to be lied to.

      CCCC

      And the conditioning continues. Many of the comments above have been amazing, and I wish I could put my 2 cents in on each one. Instead, I will just say that many of you have said very important things. Many of you give hope and guidance. Many of you understand completely, and yet continue to help and inform.

      Amazing. The silent beauty of it all. Few will ever know…but what matters is that each of you knows yourself. Though we are spread throughout the world, we are friends and comrades in peaceful pursuit of justice and community…and beacons to those around us.

      The vibes of this world are knotted and twisted (like some here have mentioned)…and I, too, feel them tearing.

      Stay true. Be at peace.

    Suppression of information in this day and age is not possible, you may corrupt and withhold information, but the truth will come to light in the end.
    It is a fact that radiation will effect genome, the only question is at what level or kind of radiation will the effects become apparent and in Japan's case in and near Fukushima, it is apparent to everyone except the ones who have something to lose(money and power) that the process has begun.
    Does it matter if Fukushima is a ELE or not, if we continue down this path of self distruction, sooner or later it will be, to many Murphies variables for my liking and as we build more and more and reactors become older the odds are not in our favour and diminish as I post.

    Pope Francis, please address nuclear problem
    By Kim Ik-jung (professor at the Dongguk University School of Medicine)
    Your Holiness.
    On behalf of my fellow Korean citizens, I warmly welcome you and your mission of peace to Korea. …
    Korea has 23 nuclear power plants … (and) plans to build 20 more in the next 20 years. I am not sure this country has fully learned the lessons of the Fukushima nuclear disaster. …A slew of technical problems that recently emerged at some of the country's older reactors exposed the government's ineptitude in operating and maintaining such facilities and monitoring their safety.
    Too many reactors are not the only problem. Korea is also at a loss over what to do with the increasing amount of spent fuel, including 10,000 tons of high-level nuclear waste. …
    Your Holiness, it would be great if you could use your visit to address Korea's nuclear power issues and urge policymakers to think harder about an approach that is safer and future-oriented. I do not want future generations of Koreans to inherit a country burdened with dangerous reactors.

    The Council of Canadians is pleased that the Canada-EU trade deal, the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), has seen the light of day after German television show Tagesschau provided the full text online this afternoon.
    "Throughout the process, this agreement and its devastating impacts have been kept locked away from legislators and the public, shielded from a democratic process. Finally, it comes to light, probably because people in Germany are fed up with the secrecy and fed up with being taken hostage by companies," says Maude Barlow, Council of Canadians national chairperson.
    The Harper government has celebrated the completion of the agreement this week, setting a signing date of September 26. CETA's investor-state dispute settlement provisions … would allow corporations to sue countries for lost profit. The Vattenfall decision, where a company sued Germany for pulling out of the nuclear industry, is fresh in Germany's mind …

    • Really, I've had thoughts like that too. Seems plausible enough that the little greys, or likely their masters, since they seem like a combination AI/life form creation sent to do some basic lab work chores. And they would have to watch from their loop in the time continuum and pick the exact right time to grab some animal and human samples before we became too radiated and genetically useless to *help* upgrade their DNA. :)

      See? You're not the only one pondering strange explanations for the supposedly explainable. The days of Ozzie and Harriet are long, long gone.

      Anyway, doesn't seem too OT, especially since the OT thread has turned into a pontificated maze, lol.

      Maybe it comes with my PTSD badge, or sitting on a Mayan Pyramid….got the same thoughts myself. Like to volunteer on the Bosnia Pyramid and get down to rewriting history but right now close to home a chance to follow a mayan friend deal with cancer… a simple story, found the title recently from a cardboard box , "Extended Life".

      Yesterday, a young fellow came looking for work. Everybody looking for work. I was cleaning a chicken that a possum had decapitated the night before. The young man explained to me how I needed to build a proper chicken coop. I had just finished patching the coop to bar further access. Standing talking, we saw a fox run over the drive way about 50 meters up the hill from us. the young man told me how I needed to keep the chickens locked in the coop. Simple solutions to living in the jungle: lock it up, or kill the predator. We have constant interactions with the wild life, trying to live in a small sustainable nich without upsetting the balance…

    If people on the West Coast inhaled "hot particles" I would suspect that about now pulmonologists and oncologists would be seeing scaring on lung tissues on lung x-ray and CAT scans. In fact, I am hearing that through the grapevine. Biopsies and autopsies will be showing up, too, soon with evidence of "fuel fleas" in people's lungs, if these assertions are correct, especially in Japan.

    I am hearing that younger people are being diagnosed much more often with serious cancers. That is harder to prove as having been caused by radionuclides coming from Fukushima.

    Lung cancer from inhalation takes about five years to develop. John Wayne claimed that, although he was a smoker, his cancer came from inhalation of radioactive dust on a movie set. He lost one lung before he ultimately died at UCLA Medical Center.

    If hot particles showered the West Coast and were inhaled as aerosols, be watching those chest films and pulmonary biopsies. Multiple nodules and areas of scaring in a star-burst pattern in the lung would be the first manifestation. There might not even be any symptoms.

    It will take five years from the time of inhalation, plus three more years for the incidence of lung cancers to be reported the CDC, to do the epidemiological studies. That would be around 2019. But the chest films for other purposes will show the incidental evidence of inhaled hot particles. Meanwhile, the oceans will die.

      Pretty sure I was hit with two of these hot particles, as I had explosive pain in my right side chest and lung.

      The pain came and then went very quickly. as if there was an electrical discharge happening in my body and then nothing.

      So these symptoms would/could be very short and quick and then become long term deadly and may only happen once, if you are the unlucky one too breath one and/or several of those hot particles in.

      These hot particles may travel in groups, pairs or singles based on their individual charges.. :(

      What is the saying birds of a feather like to flock together.. :(

        Obewanspeaks,

        Pulmonary injuries are very frequent with first – responders such as firefighters. I used to represent about 700 firefighters simultaneously for workers compensation and work-related retirement hearings. Those guys had lots of inhalation problems due to what materials are used in building construction. I have represented asbestos to fiberglass-lung cases, even ABPA case "allergic broncho-pulmonary aspergillosis" an allergy from Aspergillis spores, a common fungi.

        Cases of "Fukushima lung" might become as common as asbestosis or mesothelioma, a rare lung cancer associated with asbestos inhalation.

        I have a number of university medical center consultants who evaluate, treat and testify pulmonary cases. I hope you are not affected by a hot particle.

        I suspect that inhalation is the biggest immediate threat from any nuclear incident – fallout. The medical consequences take more time to manifest. Recent enenews.com articles indicate more particles in different forms were released from Fukushima, some of which are two microns or less, and which can be aerosolized and, presumably, cross the Pacific Ocean. It only takes one or two hot particles from what I am told to ultimately produce cancer.

        The people on the USS Reagan had no respiratory protection from what I heard. Many civilian contractors and Navy dependents were there, too.

        Did they inhale hot particles?

          Socrates, I am not sure what happened, but what did happen, has never happened before ever.

          I can only report what appeared to be 2 small like pain/explosions happening in what appears to be in my right side chest, near the lung entry point. I must assume that these two each sharp explosive pains were either one hot particle moving across two places inside the lung or two individual particles landing in two separate spots inside the lung.

          Since there has been no pain in this area, since those two very quick events, I am assuming the hot particle(s) must have discharged their energies when my body grounded them out. I believe these hot particles carry a pretty sizable charge and are looking for a way to release their energy.

          Now will the event be deadly? Only time will tell, but I always look for things that are out of the ordinary and this event was certainly out of the ordinary for me and just like the whole Fukushima Event mess is right now for the unaware world!

            Get a doctor to take a history, do a physical examination, and suggest tests such as a chest x-ray. Reassurance would help. .y opinion is that inhalation of a few nuclear fallout particles of 3 microns or less would not produce any symptoms. Time will tell. Nobody in Fukushima seems to have reported these symptoms. We know that many particles were present in Japan because of filters used by Arnie Gundersen and Marco Kaltofen.

            I am very curious to talk to some pulmonologists. If no unusual findings on x-rays, then alpha emitters were few and far between on the west Coast. Our problem here will be from bioaccumulation in that case.

              Well, I am not sure these types of events are unusual. I think these hot particles will act as they do and as highly charged particles. Few have probably breathed in the really hot ones and many of these may have landed on the skin and may have felt like a bug bite. A little sharp pain on your leg or arm or skull lets say that you slap away only to find nothing (bug) there. More of a well have no idea what that was only to find later down the line that you have a cancer forming somewhere in or on your body.

              Surely we have all been eating and drinking these hot particles on a regular basis in many of our foods and beverages that may end up being signs of/for stomach problems or what we might call a bad meal purchased in a restaurant where we think the food we got was bad or the reaction to it was.

              I think the results, reactions and symptoms will be very sporadic for most of us out here in the general populations from a sharp pain or bug bite to excessive tiredness as our body reacts in different ways to these encounters with these ever now present hot particles.

              An individual encounter with a hot particle may not require any immediate medical action where any medical staff could tell what or where the symptom came from unless they could detect the radiation signature with very expensive testing.

              Obviously we already know that nobody is doing or looking to do any testing anywhere in the future.. :(

              This is the beauty of an invisible, odorless and tasteless…

    Its now Aug 2014 and its a proven fact that both radiation and mercury
    levels have tripled in the last only three years! WE ARE BEING POISONED
    and you better accept and figure this out for yourselves! If you want to
    be and stay healthy doing a radiation and heavy metal detox with the
    natural mineral called zeolite would be a VERY good idea! It would also
    be a smart move to store a quantity of Zeolite for the future because this is
    not going to stop in your lifetime! EVER! For more information on this detox mineral do a search for the single word Zeolite.

    Almost weekly Rense has guest Patricia Doyle who is a fan of horse racing and she has reported on this problem (tragedy?) for horses for several weeks now. She is heartbroken, he is suspicious that radiation is the cause. I don't know if he offers his chats with Doyle for free (download or YouTube), but it might be worth looking for them on http://www.rense.com Also he does offer his chats with Yoshi Shimatsu and others.
