Colorado St. Univ., Apr 13, 2015 (emphasis added): CSU partners with Fukushima University to study radiation effects… Many CSU faculty and researchers are contributing to radiation research in Japan… including Thomas Johnson… professor of health physics, who is testing trace radiation samples in seal populations in the northern Pacific Ocean, where radiation from the Fukushima disaster was released.

Alaska Marine Science Symposium presentation, Raphaela Stimmelmayr (Dept. of Wildlife Management, North Slope Borough) & Gay Sheffield (Univ.of  Alaska – Fairbanks Marine Advisory Program), 2014:

Incidental Gross Necropsy Findings in Subsistence-Harvested Ice Seals and Walruses

• Reproductive system: adnexal cysts [uterus], uterine and penile melanosis [darkening of skin], cliteromegaly [enlarged clitoris], cryptorchism [testicle(s) absent from scrotum], retained placenta;
• Endocrine system
: thyroid cysts, adrenal nodules;
• Musculoskeletal system: synovial cyst [fluid-filled sacs in spine due to degeneration];
• Integumentary system
: panniculitis [inflammation of fatty tissue], epidermal molt, skin sloughing;
• Respiratory system
: lung tumor, parasitic granulomas [inflammation that forms when immune system is unable to eliminate a substance];
• Digestive system
: microdontia [teeth smaller than normal], chronic interstitial pancreatitis [inflammation of pancreas], hepatic cyst [liver], cholestatic jaundice [yellowing of skin caused by thickening of bile or problems in liver], geophagia [eating dirt], and primary diffuse peritoneal tumor [membrane lining abdomen];
• 
A variety of the observed disease conditions are reported for the first time in ice seals and/or walruses.
• The majority of observed conditions in our material is classified as benign and are mostly inconsequential to the health of the harvested animals.

    Doesn't look so benign and inconsequential to me.

  • GreenRenew GreenRenew

    Thank goodness. It's about time. So, what happens if, and when, they confirm what we've been saying since 3/11? Certainly the nuclear cabal will deny deny deny even though extinction is occurring before their very eyes. How insane can they be!?! Perhaps grassroots efforts with their findings will force their way into coverage by the mainstream media. Wishful thinking?

    • JimLynch JimLynch

      Well you are of course correct. However, I would still like to see independent labs jump on the bandwagon. I am very skeptical of University press these days due to funding. Skeptical, not disbelieving until sussed out.

    Should we thank them for picture after picture of animals that are presenting far more damage than the usual trip through the 'Garbage Patch'?.
    Every picture shows a pathological situation that could be attributed to radiation exposure.

    "The majority of observed conditions in our material is classified as benign and are mostly inconsequential to the health of the harvested animals."

    Inconsequential?
    How so?
    Looks like encroaching morbidity to me!

    • HoTaters HoTaters

      Yes, Heart, agreed, that's a very callous statement re: the injuries and observed conditions being classified as "benign."

      Benign my arsky.

      Calling the animals "harvested" as if they're as inconsequential as your garden variety factory farm animal is pretty callous, as well. (There is not high regard for those poor creatures, either.)

      Do everything possible to take away the dignity and sanctity of life, nuke pukes. You're good at it. Go, nuke pukes, go!

      But hey, we as humans are just "collateral damage" for these people when we are injured or die, so what did we expect?

      Certainly not compassion, humanity, decency. Oh no, that would be far too much to expect.

    Really??? Every damn thing in the Pacific Ocean is dead, dying or suffering and these brilliant scientists/biologists have to kill (harvest)more to study????

    I am really starting to hate scientists, biologists, college indoctrinated educated. They make me SICK!!!!

    So, how about they just grab the dead washing up on every shore from Alaska to Mexico???? oh, that might make sense, so let's rule that out as a possibility.

    • HoTaters HoTaters

      Let's collect the dead creatures and leave them on the door steps of some of these researchers' homes. Bet they wouldn't like that much, eh? Kind of like getting a gift horse head in your bed.

      I'm sorry, this just makes me fume, hearing such utter disregard for the suffering and plight of these poor, suffering creatures.

    • PurpleRain PurpleRain

      I was hoping that the animals "harvested" for testing were the dead that were already at the seal rescue facilities… hoping… hoping for some shred of kindness or decency. Not everyone in science etc. is bad.

      • HoTaters HoTaters

        PurpleRain, you're right, not all scientists are bad. But this callous disregard of these particular scientists, for the obvious suffering of the animals is just disgusting. The horrors shown in the pictures say it all ….

        I've been very upset about this for a long time. The story about sea lions with bellies full of rocks due to starvation was, for me, the clincher.

        Probably won't ever forget that story ….

  • Daisy207

    What lab are they using? Currently there are two labs in the WORLD that can accurately test for radio isotopes. One is in Austria and one is oddly in Japan. Also who is collecting water samples near Fukushima and what is the procedure. Personally I would not go near any source to collect a sample at that location. We never get any information on procedure or lab locations.

    • SadieDog

      Daisy, hi, what is your source for there only being 2 labs that test for radioisotopes?

    • Daisy207 – Come on, please don't put bs like that out here. France has CNRS, Belgium has SCK-CEN, USA has Oak Ridge, Los Alamos, Argonne, UC Berkerly, private ones like EMSL Analytics, etc. etc. There labs all over the planet. And manufacturers of the equipment willing to sell to those who have the money.

      • bo bo

        I did hear this MVB – that there once used to be many institutions that tested Strontium all over the states at the height of the atomic testing era, then one by one they shut down, and right now in the U.S. Oak Ridge and Hanford are the only options, and those institutions have been stonewalling requests post fukushima.

        • bo bo

          That is – for testing Strontium in food & animals & such – I guess it's more complicated & expensive to do, than cesium..?

        • HoTaters HoTaters

          Idaho National Laboratory still tests. An acquaintance of mine who runs a diary farm had several things tested there. UC Berkeley BRAWN Laboratory will also do testing.

          There are independent labs that will do testing, as well.

          • bo bo

            …! Hi HoTaters, did u get the data for milk from this person? I'd love to know what s/he got. The data is so sparse and far apart. 🙁

            • HoTaters HoTaters

              No. I wasn't able to get the data.

              It was Strauss Creamery, and they produce organic milk. The cattle feed on the hillsides in Marin County. Their PR person said the Idaho National Lab found "no Cesium" in their milk. I find that rather hard to believe.

              The other person had his milk, soil, and hay samples sent to the UC Berkeley Lab. The UC Lab found contaminants in all the samples (as I recall). The hay samples from the Central Valley (Dixon area, outside Sacramento) were especially high in contaminants. It has been awhile since I spoke with this person. If I remember right, the Cesium levels in the hay were very high. He, as a diary farmer, was very concerned about the source of his feed, as his diary cows require hay in the winter months.

            • HoTaters HoTaters

              Can't post the comment. Site is saying the comment is a "duplicate."

              The farm that had milk sent to the Idaho Nat'l Laboratory (Strauss Creamery in Marin County) said their milk tested with zero Cesium. I find that very, very hard to believe. But that's what their PR person told me.

              The other person had milk, soil, and hay samples sent to the UC Brawn Lab. The hay samples had high levels of contaminants. I'm a bit reluctant to comment further, as I don't have the specifics on the test results. The BRAWN Lab tested for free. They are picky about their samples, but obliged the farmer. What he learned was he needed to be very careful about where he sourced the hay he feeds his diary cattle in the winter time.

        • PurpleRain PurpleRain

          Arnie Gunderson had used a lab at Worcester Polytech Univ in Massachusetts to test the samples he first brought back from Japan. Michael VB is correct. There are facilities (Educational, Medical, Governmental) all across the country in every state that can do the testing as long as they have the right equipment.

      • Daisy207

        These labs can test for a limited number of indicator parameters. Oak Ridge labs has perhaps the most comprehensive testing but even they they can only test for a hand full of parameters. The big thing is what do any of them do with a really hot sample. Who is going to process it? They can't screen for everything that is in it. EMSL is an independent lab and I have used them for gross alpha and beta but they don't report the source isotopes – they can test for tritium but then a number of labs can test for that one. At Fukushima what are the sampling procedures for collecting say ground water or trench water? I would not go and collect a sample? What lab is it sent to? We only get cesium and strontium numbers and gross beta (tritium) – there are hundreds of isotopes all with different toxicities.

    • tbg

      There are many labs that Can test for radionuclides.

      However, they are All on the government teat, and not a one of the labs I contacted ever gave me a real quote on any of the tests they say they provide.

      And milk test "results" are shady, here in Washington, they only tested every 90 days, from 2 dairies. In The State.

      With no info on methodology either, there are many ways to reduce the numbers, as they do in Japan.

      A cow that has never been outside in its life will have much lower levels, and if you pull a couple gallons to test out of a mixed 500,000 gallons of indoor cow milk at dates during lulls in the plumes, I doubt you could find anything if you wanted to.

    The Colorado University study has no results yet. They want to track wild boar and check their population numbers. Do they have a pre Fukushima baseline?

    The Alaska Marine Science study is a disgrace. In 2009 the animals were healthy. Now they are horribly sick, which they call inconsequential (they want to know if you can eat them) and then chalk it all up to global warming, the new normal. If there is global warming, it didnt happen just in the last few years.

    They go on the studies from Buesseler and the EPA that show radioactivity at levels below background and way too low to have any effect. Big problem there! Buesseler says rad levels are up to 1000x more than pre fukushima, and despite asuurances, effects ARE being seen.

    Alaska Marine Science University of Alaska; two big thumbs down to you for looking at a bunch of really sick animals and declaring them safe to eat and victims of global warming

      Bo .. from someone like you .. ??

      I have a personal connection to this hospital.

      I had a tuxedo kitty too .. every time I see your screen pic I am reminded of him. . His name was Bert.

      He was dx'd w an extremely rare cat cancer at 18 .. was taken to one of the best animal hospitals in state of California.

      This hospital rotates in vets .. the best .. from Colorado su fcaa. I happened to there when the feline oncologist was there.

      God .. she was so sweet and supportive. There was nothing phony about her .. nor.fucking political.

      She would never have lied to me about anything .. including that my stud boy Bert was gonna die .. even with the most advanced tx they had.

      So I so take offense about your characterization of csu fcaa. You don't have a clue about their integrity or status worldwide .. and you spout out that *absolutely BS* accusation.

      She had never actually seen this extremely rare kitty cancer before .. and in some way I was happy that Bert gave her some experience and .. yes .. research.

      So no Heart .. they are NOT experimenting on animals .. research is different.

      See ya on the Bridge Berticus!

      And all this pre Fuku of course.

    Ok i have been reading online for what seems like forever and now i'm on the coast of Vancouver Island and have been asking people for in put and looking for signs of life and death? so far people simply don't believe any of this period! there is plenty of sea life around Parksville, Qualicum beach and the gulf islands? i have seen it and taken photos! but i did see 13 dead sealions on Hornby island in 5 days , maybe 12 sea stars, no kelp, little birds although lots of Turkey vultures not a good sign when the ones that clean up death are plentyful!
    So at the end of my little travels i ask one question for all you Enewsers, what do you say to people who you are trying to explain what Fukshima is and what it will be come to our planet? so instead of chasing Trolls and or telling people how wrong they are WE NEED TO COME UP WITH A PLAN TO GET THE WORD OUT AND SOUND SANE DOING IT!

So the signs are everywhere it is sad too many just cannot see the forest for the trees – denial is a mental disorder where the mind cannot process the obvious because there is no acceptance of occurring events.

      The definitive answer in the raising of background radiation levels. Raising limits for drinking water, raising limits for foodstuffs, raising limits for exposure…it is actually pretty obvious what Japan, the US and Canada have had to do to account for more Daiichi fallout in everything. Raising cancer rates are sure to follow. Has already started in Japan with children and spontaneous miscarriages/abortions.

    @Yukon – A PLAN TO GET THE WORD OUT AND SOUND SANE DOING IT!

    Well that's another burning question. How do you do that? I've tried collecting headlines and articles and strewn them like Chemfood's calling cards – hoping they will take root. Did a bit of ear bashing in the early days, wrote a few letters, sent links for documents to TV stations, sprouted forth and so on. All to little effect. Four years later only a handful of relatives and friends will discuss Fukushima and even less have made lifestyle changes in hope of delaying the inevitable for their children. Main stream media continues to ignore it.

    Most people I know, survive the best way they can. Denial is a powerful defence mechanism which people use to keep themselves sane. I've come to the realisation that it's unfair of me to try to break that down. Some people are very fragile – we're the strong ones here who can stand to know the truth – who need to know the truth. I'm careful who I burden with this knowledge now.

    Most of us knew immediately that Fukushima was an extinction level event and have lived with that for four years. Reading this website, there are so many people who're already suffering from the effects. Hearts can sometimes become stronger in their brokenness and maybe find a way towards some kind of solace. I hope for that for all of us. Magda

      This is the battleground because fixing the TRIPLE MELTDOWNS isn't going to happen anytime soon.

        Here's my idea for the day.

        SCAN everything!

        When a grocery item enters a store it is SCANned multiple times one way or another into a computer.

        As the item is sold, it is SCANned again.

        Then, you SCAN your credit card.

        When you walk out the door of the store YOU get SCANned again.

        IMO – Radiation Detectors need to now become an automatic part of this distribution process and occur multiple times on EVERY ITEM in an attempt to prevent the spread of radioactive contamination.

        Own a Radiation Detector. (if you can afford one) Then, use it. That's your best line of defense. It only has to work once to save a life from an otherwise undetectable deadly insidious enemy that governments who supported this DNA Destroying technology don't want anybody to think about.

          “Three days after the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami hit the Fukushima No.1 nuclear plant, its Reactor 4 sustained massive damage in an engulfing blaze on March 14 and in the subsequent re-ignition two days later. Then and ever since, TEPCO and the government has claimed that the fire at unit 4 was triggered by "hydrogen gas released from a nearby reactor," which would have been Reactor 2.

          “At the time of 3.11 disaster and soon thereafter over Rense radio, I stated without equivocation that hydrogen leakage could not have been the cause of the Reactor 4 fire, since extremely overheated gas would have combusted in contact with the air before reaching any other reactor. I suggested then that the actual cause was a "never-before seen type of nuclear explosion involving high-energy nuclear isotopes."

          “My logical deduction back then – and since confirmed by leaks and official disclosures – was that Reactor 4 had been recently loaded with fresh fuel rods in preparation for start-up on March 12. Its planned operation was kept secret and unscheduled, and therefore had to be linked to illegal enrichment of weapons-grade uranium for the purpose of making nuclear warheads.

            indicates a reverse chain of cause and effect: A nuclear blast inside Reactor 4 created enough heat to set its spent-fuel pool on fire, and also intensified the neutron bombardment against a degraded Reactor 3, which exploded in a mushroom cloud on the next day, March 15. That huge explosion, in turn, re-ignited the Reactor 4 spent-fuel fire. These synergistic high-energy nuclear events did not constitute a classical chain reaction, for if complete fission had occurred an area many times larger than Nagasaki would have been leveled. Instead of a single nuclear explosion, the Fukushima crisis is a protracted series of nuclear events, unleashing a Pandora's Box of troubles onto the world.

            “My appraisal during last year's meltdowns led to the conclusion that melt-downs of fuel rods would quickly burn through core-reactor shrouds, the steel containment chambers beneath, and then the concrete-block footing. The consequences were obvious then, though not to the corps of nuclear engineers: That the corium would tunnel into the landfill of rock and sand, and on contact with water release enough high-pressure steam to create a sinkhole under each reactor. Huge vents of steam, as reported by nuclear workers, have since blown out through the ground surface.

            “The unstable landfill would eventually become too weak to support the combined weight of the reactors, spent-fuel pools, ferroconcrete structures and all the water being pumped inside The inevitable result is a…

      Hi Heart , "Benign, inconsequential ..wordage in an attempt to control 'perceived risk management'."

      In order to keep lying that the sun is rising when the sky is falling , sooner or later raping the symbol's and meaning's that make a language..to the point they are upside down..becomes inevitable..
      I guess the next step of this insulting freakshow , will not only be to have to listen to that..but at gunpoint..repeat after me..the sun is rising..
      The global mass insanity clearly start's in the liar's and perpetrator's..they are miles ahead..alway's been..

    Californians will be drinking water from the Pacific ocean this year, when a desalinization plant opens. 🙁

    • SadieDog

      "The biggest ocean desalination plant in the Western Hemisphere, a $1 billion project under construction since 2012 on a coastal lagoon in the California city of Carlsbad, is due to open in November. It will deliver up to 50 million gallons of water a day to San Diego County.

      That is enough to supply roughly 112,000 households, or about 10 percent of the county's drinking water needs, according to Poseidon Resources, the Connecticut-based company behind the facility."

    It doesn't matter what these creatures symptoms are from, they are sick.

    Unexpected. "A variety of the observed disease conditions are reported for the first time in ice seals and/or walruses."

    Projection. "The majority of observed conditions in our material is classified as benign and are mostly inconsequential to the health of the harvested animals."

    Think about it, if any one, of the above first six bullet points were your diagnosis, would you think they were inconsequential?

    The environment is sick.
    Earth is sick.
    Life is sick…

      And it all started with our sickness.. and we lie to ourself about it like junkies postponing the inevitable choice..live or die..junkies..they also take a lot of people with them in their misery.. but this time it's absolute and allembedding..

      Are you listening junk..er elite..and the rest of humanity ? 🙁

    systemic problems involving multiple organs… as in Chernobyl, and note ALL species:

    “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. … true for all species, for plants and animals and humans… profound implications that go beyond radiation protection and risk models.

    “Krysanov find that mice living in the high irradiation zone, 22 generations after the initial exposure, are MORE radiosensitive than mice living in lower exposure areas. The same effect is reported for plants by Grodzhinsky who wryly points out that plants cannot exhibit the ‘radiophobia’ that many of the Chernobyl effects have been blamed on. This flies in the face of current ideas about genetic selection.

    “The effects of genomic instability are apparent in the evidence of massive harm to the organs and systems of living creatures at low doses of internal exposure, resulting in a kind of radiation ageing associated with random mutations in all cells.

    “WHOLE BIOLOGICAL SYSTEMS COLLAPSE; at the cell level, at the tissue level and at the population level. "

    We need to start tagging as much of sealife as possible with a gps..
    so we can calculate the big blob's of radiation in the ocean when the poor creatures swim tru it before their health collapses..

    Very important photos. This allows anyone to see the damage.
    I have been looking at the fresh wild salmon in stores. The color seems off to me ,hard to believe it is just myself noticing.
    Anyone else see a difference?

      hatchery or farmed salmon – they dye the meat to make it look wild

        Yes.. they do.
        They feed the fish this stuff.

        Astaxanthin

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astaxanthin

        "The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved astaxanthin as a food coloring (or color additive) for specific uses in animal and fish foods.[8] The European Commission considers it food dye and it is given the E number E161j.[9] Natural astaxanthin is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the FDA,[10][11] but as a food coloring in the United States it is restricted to use in animal food.[12]"

        Only safe in the US in animals ..but Humans eat the animal.
        I think it mimics the orange pink quite well.
        But doesn't cover the sallowness of the tissue.

    NASA awards Colorado State grant for radiation studies
    May 6 2015

    http://thespacereporter.com/2015/05/nasa-awards-colorado-state-grant-for-radiation-studies/

    "According to a statement from Colorado State University (CSU), NASA has provided the university with a $9 million grant to develop a new research center. The center will investigate the ramifications of long-term exposure to radiation in deep space, an essential prelude to any manned mission to Mars. The facility will be the only one in the world dedicated to this type of research.

    The center will be converted from an existing gamma ray facility. The project, which will last for five years, will examine the effects of low doses of neutron radiation. The study of space radiation is crucial to NASA’s long-term ambitions, since radiation exposure rises as a mission goes on and no current spacecraft hull or spacesuit is capable of shielding astronauts from cosmic rays."

    NASA just figured that out, huh?

    We are just at the beginning of a very unusual time in our Earth's history.

    At NO POINT in time, since the solar system stabilized have biological forms had to deal with the amounts of "non-natural" radioactive isotopes in the quantities that we see now.

    We can research all we want as to what the effects( will/be) are but it won't "fix" the situation. People just tune out stuff they can't handle.

    I truly think it is too late to wake up the masses, they will awake from their slumber soon enough and the world will descend further into GMI.

    Embrace the death, it's our new fact of life.

    Sucks don't it?

    ""Right now it's super warm all the way across the Pacific to Japan," said Bill Peterson, an oceanographer with NOAA's Northwest Fisheries Science Center in Newport, Ore., who has linked certain ocean indicators to salmon returns. "For a scientist it's a very interesting time because when you see something like this that's totally new you have opportunities to learn things you were never expecting."

    The Warm Blob cannot explain diseases we are seeing, I suspect toxins.

    We do ourselves NO FAVORS focusing on our carbon-footprint while ignoring vastly more serious environmental onslaughts.

    With our vast robotic technology, surely we could launch submersible drones at strategic points in the Pacific and ping data to orbiting satellites and back to awaiting servers for further human perusal(s) of data on STUFF WE CHOOSE TO look for, like radioactive signatures in the water column and chlorophyll counts, acidity, etc etc.

    Our Naval fleet could release THEIR findings on seawater all over the world vis a vis radiation.

    Everybit of this stuff could then sit on a website for the planet to visit and weep!

    Obviously, that is NOT the plan for us.

    Why do you need to research radiation in space? It's already been proven on earth to be safe and sometimes healthy.

    • Shaker1

      curly, researching the ability for humans to exist in space for a long time might be looked at as 'good planning'? LOL

      All I can say is that this is one of those situations where it hurts on both sides of 'We told you so!'

      Very healthy and all these space people have to is eat plenty of bananas during the whole trip there and back! 🙂

    Lost Refuges

    Where are the refuges now,
    the mountains, deep forests,
    vast oceans and deserts,
    difficult places given to the holy and outlaw?

    In these undefiled places
    seers, prophets, and saints;
    desperate seekers, sinners and the ostracized
    respectively exposed themselves to their god
    or lived hidden within themselves.
    These places have been profaned.

    While the ultimate refuge
    may be guiltless heart and spirit,
    the comfort was provided for the journey.
    When our hearts required suspension of limits,
    it was provided and one could come
    from the experience alive and well.

    Who will climb the mountain
    to face anger?
    Play in the rain to feel it burn?
    Explore the depths, confront their nakedness
    settled there upon the bedrock
    to see that nothing stirs?
    Spirit lost in separation,
    the chant of numbers and theories
    little satisfy imperative.
    What remains but loneliness?
    The refuge, an easy death?

    Concocted poisons impose
    discrimination that was little intended;
    arrive with each breath,
    in each unsatisfying swallow.
    All refuges lost,
    where will those for whom
    radioactivity's logic has been ignored
    won't be damned as well as doomed?

    You know the effects of this disaster on nature is an industrial dream come true. The nuke industry says it is the chemical industry doing the damage to nature…And the chemical industry says it is the nuke industry doing the damage…thus pointing their fingers at each other while continuing to dump undercover in rivers, lakes, oceans, etc. While the White House points at the sky and says its Global Warming and all industrialists look up and say "Gee, he is right. It is Global Warming."
    Meanwhile the people run around in confusion trying to figure out who is right! The World at its brightest!!!
