NPR, Aug 3, 2016 (emphasis added): Washington Fire Crews Fight To Keep Buffer Between Wildfire, Nuclear Reactor — Officials from the Hanford nuclear reservation and Energy Northwest have been meeting with fire managers in southeast Washington state Tuesday. The nearby Range 12 Fire has grown to more than 177,000 acres and high winds are predicted this evening. Fire managers are very serious about keeping the Range 12 Fire off the central portion of the Hanford nuclear site and away from the Northwest’s only nuclear reactor… Energy Northwest spokesman John Dobken called the fire’s distance from the reactor a “non-issue,”… However, fire crews were still active on Rattlesnake Tuesday. Helicopters won’t be able to fly if gusts reach 20-30 miles per hour as predicted.

KEPR, Aug 2, 2016: The fire that began on the Yakima Training Center Saturday night and burned into Benton and Grant Counties over the weekend has ballooned to over 175,000 acres according to fire crews… The Range 12 fire [is] burning close to Hanford… The Northwest Incident Command team managing the firefighting efforts said [the blaze] is getting dangerously close to West Richland… A red flag warning is in place until 8 p.m. Tuesday night… Fire officials said the Red Flag Warning is causing concern for controlling containment lines around the blaze… As of Tuesday the Range 12 blaze stretched… from the Yakima Training Center toward the Hanford Reservation… Randall Rishe with BLM [Bureau of Land Management] said at this time they do not have a clear estimate of when the fire will be fully contained.

NPR, Aug 2, 2016: The Country’s Largest Wildfire Is Burning In Washington State… About 400 firefighters, three helicopters and 34 engines are fighting it. Some firefighters and land managers say they’re on edge because of predicted gusty winds and a red flag warning. The breeze is already kicking up, and firefighters worry that burned areas could pop up and jump the established fire lines. Crews set a backfire Sunday night on Rattlesnake Mountain to keep the Range 12 fire from burning contaminated areas of the Hanford Nuclear Reservation… [This] is the largest wildfire on a list of fires managed by government agencies.

KIRO, Aug 1, 2016: FEMA funds to help fight Benton County wildfire — A wildfire burning toward the Hanford nuclear reservation scorched about 110 square miles of brush and grass Monday as it spread… [FEMA] has authorized the use of federal funds to help with firefighting costs for the South Ward Gap Fire burning in Benton County, Washington. FEMA Region X Regional Administrator Kenneth D. Murphy determined that the fire threatened such destruction as would constitute a major disaster

Seattle Times, Aug 2, 2016: Winds whip up wildfires; one blaze bearing down on Hanford site… winds pushed the Range 12 fire toward the Hanford Nuclear Reservation… Rishe said the fire Sunday ripped through grass, sagebrush and cheatgrass with ferocity… Crews are racing to put the fire down before winds make the situation more dangerous.

Seattle Times, Aug 2, 2016: Wildfire near Hanford site larger than first thought; high winds a concern — The Range 12 fire, near the Hanford nuclear site, is now 175,000 acres — much bigger than crews first realized… More than 400 firefighters are working the Range 12 fire, which is west of the Hanford nuclear site. Rishe said “there’s very low concern along Highway 240,” the barrier to the nuclear site. But, “it’s all contingent on this wind event.”

Tri-City Herald, Aug 2, 2016: Fire near Hanford much larger than thoughtThe estimated size of the fire that burned… toward the Hanford nuclear reservation has more than doubled to 273 square miles… A red flag fire warning was issued for the Mid-Columbia on Tuesday… The incident command team was concerned that established fire perimeter lines could be threatened… Crews have come from as far away as Medford, Ore., to help fight the fire.

    Still sick 25 years after the Gulf War, a vet seeks answers — and the Minneapolis VA may have them.

    By Jeremy Olson AUGUST 14, 2016 STAR TRIBUNE

    It’s been 25 years, and Chad Donovan still wonders which toxic hazard in the Gulf War might have caused the fatigue, stomach problems and rashes he has suffered ever since.

    Maybe it was the nerve gas pills, which his unit took in Saudi Arabia while standing in formation so nobody refused.

    Maybe one of the “false alarms” after a missile attack really did signal the presence of chemical weapons.

    Maybe the mushroom-cloud detonation of unused Iraqi ordnance whooshed toxins into the air.

    And then there were the sand fleas, pesticides, burning oil wells, dust storms and uranium-depleted bullets that made the Gulf War one of the most toxic conflicts in history.

    Today, researchers at the Minneapolis VA Medical Center are leading a wave of studies to solve the mystery of Gulf War Illness, a cluster of unexplained symptoms reported by 25 to 65 percent of the 700,000 soldiers deployed to the Gulf in 1990 and 1991.

    They have identified genetic markers …

      that could improve tests and treatment, one of the most significant advances in years, and started a clinical trial on a promising prescription drug.

      But 25 years later, many Gulf War vets remain like Donovan — sick, sore and exhausted by the lack of answers.

      “Everyone I’m still in contact with has had issues,” said Donovan, who served with the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division that deployed days after Iraq invaded Kuwait. “Insomnia, the achy joints, stomach issues. I still have stomach issues, and nobody knows what’s causing them.”

      More than $500 million in research hasn’t found causes or cures for the illness, which the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs classifies as “unexplained illness” or “chronic multisymptom illness.”

      The consequence isn’t just scant treatment of the illness, which typically produces joint pain, chronic fatigue or digestive problems. With limited diagnostic criteria, many veterans can’t prove their illnesses stem from Gulf War service and can’t qualify for VA disability benefits.

      And while federal policy is to presume …

        that any Gulf War vets with symptoms qualify for VA coverage, the reality is different. Eighty percent of Gulf War Illness-related claims were denied in 2015, according to federal data presented to Congress this year.

        “So many veterans can’t get these presumptive illnesses service-connected,” said James Bunker, who directs the National Gulf War Resource Center in Kansas. “So they’re being denied the care they should be getting.”

        Americans were primed for the worst when the Gulf War started, based on reports that Iraq had stockpiled chemical weapons; and they were subsequently relieved when they watched the so-called surgical war of precision bombs and lightning-quick attacks play out on cable TV.

        But that relief might have fueled disbelief when soldiers came home reporting fatigue and pain. Many soldiers were told it was “in their heads,” said Brian Engdahl, a psychologist and Gulf War researcher at the Minneapolis VA. …

          … “We don’t want that mine to go ahead. We will fight against that mine at Mulga Rock.”

          Indigenous people living in the area have a bad history with uranium developments. It’s a few hundred kilometres from Cundalee, the mission where Spinifex people from the Great Victoria Desert were placed after being pushed off their traditional lands by the British government’s nuclear testing program in Maralinga, South Australia, in the 1950s and 60s.

          “It is an emotive issue because of that history,” Fiona Pemberton, general manager of the Paupiyala Tjarutja Aboriginal Corporation, told Guardian Australia.

          Most of those displaced people now live at Tjuntjuntjara near the South Australian border but one woman remains at Coonana, a remote Aboriginal community near Cundalee. …

    In response to an alternate theory that it was Plutonium and Americium decay that was responsible for the explosion, the DOE in all their wisdom had this to say:

    “The overarching conclusion of the technical assessment team was that specific chemical contents inside one particular drum, in combination with physical configuration of the materials led to a chemical reaction that breached the drum,” said Steve Horak, a communications specialist with the DOE Environmental Management Field Office in Los Alamos. “A separate DOE board of experts and an independent expert board confirmed these results and we see no reason to question them now.”

            William Butler Yeats (1865-1939)

            THE SECOND COMING

            Turning and turning in the widening gyre
            The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
            Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
            Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
            The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
            The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
            The best lack all conviction, while the worst
            Are full of passionate intensity.

            Surely some revelation is at hand;
            Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
            The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
            When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
            Troubles my sight: a waste of desert sand;
            A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
            A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
            Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
            Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.

            The darkness drops again but now I know
            That twenty centuries of stony sleep
            Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
            And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
            Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

      "The early federal statements gave no hint that the blast had caused massive long-term damage to the dump, a facility crucial to the nuclear weapons cleanup program that spans the nation, or that it would jeopardize the Energy Department’s credibility in dealing with the tricky problem of radioactive waste.

      But the explosion ranks among the costliest nuclear accidents in U.S. history, according to a Times analysis. The long-term cost of the mishap could top $2 billion, an amount roughly in the range of the cleanup after the 1979 partial meltdown at the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant in Pennsylvania.

      The Feb. 14, 2014, accident is also complicating cleanup programs at about a dozen current and former nuclear weapons sites across the U.S. Thousands of tons of radioactive waste that were headed for the dump are backed up in Idaho, Washington, New Mexico and elsewhere, state officials said in interviews."

      "Washington state officials were recently forced to accept delays in moving the equivalent of 24,000 drums of nuclear waste from Hanford site to the New Mexico dump. The deal has further antagonized the relationship between the state and federal regulators.

      “The federal government has an obligation to clean up the nuclear waste at Hanford,” Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee said in a statement. “I will continue to press them to honor their commitments to protect Washingtonians' public health and our natural resources.” " same link

        "Hancock suggested that the dump might never resume full operations.

        “The facility was never designed to operate in a contaminated state,” he said. “It was supposed to open clean and stay clean, but now it will have to operate dirty. Nobody at the Energy Department wants to consider the potential that it isn't fixable.”

        Giving up on the New Mexico dump would have huge environmental, legal and political ramifications. This year the Energy Department decided to dilute 6 metric tons of surplus plutonium in South Carolina and send it to the dump, potentially setting a precedent for disposing of bomb-grade materials. The U.S. has agreements with Russia on mutual reductions of plutonium.

        The decision means operations at the dump must resume, said Edwin Lyman, a physicist and nuclear expert at the Union of Concerned Scientists.

        “They have no choice,” he said. “No matter what it costs.” "

His associate, excited with his deep scientific knowledge, says mother only needs one kidney, we can use the other for a waste dump! Another argues for the tonsils and produces a long report. Another says we have no positive proof mother earth has sentient intelligence, I say we bore deep into her skull and deposit 400,000 drums of plutonium for starters, close it up and hope we get our retirement bonus before she blows.

    EDTA for Chelation, Removes Calcium, And Other Heavy Metals
    stock here. anyone who has run down the rabbit hole, please chime back in the comments. And if you like this stuff, sign up as a follower.

    I have been aware of EDTA and DSMA as chelators since college chemistry. I have always wanted to learn more, and after due diligence, take that jump. EDTA can be administered as pills, in no longer has to be administered as a shot.

    In the increasingly toxic environment that we live in, and the high rate of disease, we need to be smarter to reduce our risks of something serious. And of course, writing as the Nuke Pro, we need to be ready for "standard" and emergency radiation events.

    Just look at the captured EPA trying to say its OK to "do nothing" during a large radiation release. Of course they are now just puppets, dancing to the machinations of their corporate masters. Will it tip to the good? Maybe, but there is no guarantees, and maybe they will even get worse.

    And the IAEA is now training Doctors on how to effectively use propaganda and confusion to allow the nuclear cartel to "Do Nothing" in an accident. Seriously, here is good review and expose.

    • Yes I agree with the EDTA idea stock!!!

      Have a large bottle of it (tablets) in my medicine kit.

      I haven't taken any as of yet but keep it as a "just in case thing"…

      REMEMBER that this substance removes minerals from your body as well as most heavy metals mimic some sort of mineral or vitamin our body needs.

      YOU also need to take very specific vitamin and mineral combinations after doing the detox. so EDTA is only one part of the entire detox program.

      If you don't replace these minerals with pure ones after the detox your body will "take up" anything it can find to replace them and you could end up with the same old metals in your system again.

      Or even worse, more of them…

      Here's my story:

      I bought a bottle of EDTA AND the Multi-mineral tablets after suffering from welders sickness (horrible vomiting and sickness in general) after reading that the ER will give EDTA in IV form for extreme cases (and I had a EXTREME case). Vomiting every 15 minuets for over 2 days.

      As I was about to call a ambulance to take me to the hospital I stumbled across a slew of articles on welders sickness (heavy and light metal poisoning) on the internet. And found that for over 50 years the old timers had the cure! You won't believe what it is…

      • Welders come in contact with Lead, Aluminum, Titanium and too many other metals in gas form from joining (burning) the pieces of metal together. By far worst is galvanized metal that includes toxic zinc and lead.

        But these people already know how to get these metals out of their body without a doctor visit.

        Are you ready for this?

        Shops that weld galvanized metals keep large quantities of milk in the shop at all times. Yea you read it right MILK!!!

        When someone gets sick from heavy metals they drink large quantities of milk.

        Now I thought this must be a old "wives tale" but as sick as I was at that time I would have tried anything for relief!!!

        I would have NEVER thought of this as I had a upset stomach and always was told to drink clear liquids so I would have NEVER drank milk when vomiting every 15 minuets for 2+ days.

        I began to drink milk and after a few glasses and one or two heaves over the next hour I was cured!!!!!

        The Calcium in milk binds to the heavy metals and stops the reaction!!!

        The minerals in the milk replaced the metals as the binding reaction occurred and to this day (happened over 8 months ago) I have suffered NO side effects!!!!

        Of course this would depend on having milk that is not tainted by Radiation.

        In that case EDTA is the ONLY option…

        • Milk really works!!! I have the proof and the first hand experience to prove it!!!

          If you want to remove metals from your body drink at least 1 gallon of milk a day for 3 to 4 days!!!!

          And yep that's 3 to 4 gallons of whole or 2 percent milk (most recommend whole milk but I found that 2 percent works too) at a rate of 1 gallon or more per day. for at least 3 days. Simple, natural and proven for over 50 years by folks that get metal poisoning from the workplace!!!!

          Just remember if you have other health problems, contact your doctor before starting this.

Mobilizing them only to have them ruin your nervous system is a big risk, for example by taking cilantro extract. This is one detox program that needs to be done right.

              Why the earth is hell bound for destruction; Three pound brain ape cant visualize the results of his actions nor understand the source of his sustenance.

              IF you scraped up every living thing on earth, every tree and animal of earth air and water, they would easily fit into this little ball of water which is approximately the size of the biosphere, a very thin crust where life can exist.

              http://www.sciencephoto.com/image/159198/530wm/E0550313-Global_water_volume-SPL.jpg

              Every toxic spill, every bit of nuclear fallout, every inhalation and exhalation is occurring in this volume. This is the true size of earth as far as life is concerned. Its like a two days drive to cross the diameter of it. (atmosphere is a little larger but most life is below 10k feet, so the water volume is a close approximation of biosphere size)

              Within this little globe exist 7 billion people, of which a certain proportion are selfish control freaks and the rest are 'enablers', and none too smart, they just think they are.

              They poisoned it and exploited it which is why half the animals have died and the rest will soon

                    PJ…its not that Im….insensitive to the invitation. I know who I am…and you, well you deserve…I dont know, a spiritual man, one who doesnt succumb to the passions of the flesh, or become embroiled in the troubles of worldly life. Someone fun loving, god fearing and who doesnt think that much. Theres a scene from Woody Allens Hannah and her sisters, I would like you to watch. Im so much like this older troubled artist, except Im older, and you, joyous, young at heart…

                      In the first place, as a Christian I deserve nothing. Everything is a gift from the Creator bestowed on mortals who are undeserving.
                      And in the second place, there is nothing joyous about being rejected or betrayed, but only grief and sorrow.

Perhaps they knew what I only suspect; nobody in their right minds wants a 165 lb sack of rotten potatoes lying around, despite its earthy pungent aroma, globular quality and self acclaimed wit. Its not that Im trying to let you down easy, my value has been qualified; I went to my doctor. I said somethings wrong with me. He said youre no good. I said I wanted a second opinion. He said OK, youre ugly too

                      I didn't mean past or present betrayal. I thought you were indicating future betrayal if there were ever a relationship.

                      I'm sorry I'm so near sighted, and my glasses were from 30 to 40 years ago for playing the piano. For some reason I had the reading correction put at the top of the bifocals and the piano music at 3 feet on the bottom of the bifocals. So I've never actually seen what you look like.

                      Since I sit 4 feet from my computer monitor, I have to make the letters on the computer very large to see them. I used to have wonderful distance glasses, but the plastic frames broke when I fell and they were in my hand maybe 10 years ago.

                      I don't like to wear my glasses for anything but the computer or work because I don't want anything to happen to them.

                      At least I can still read without glasses and only need my magnifying glass on only 1% of the Chinese characters I read.

                      Anyway, I cry a while, and then I laugh a lot. My youngest daughter thinks there is something wrong with me for laughing so much. It's just that at my age many things seem extremely hilarious.

                      And I tried to listen to the video twice, and I think I heard the most important parts, but I don't hear so well anymore either. I think she left him for a younger man. My husband was always accusing me of infidelity, although my attempts to finally be unfaithful after 55 years of faithfulness are completely unsuccessful.

Then, despite the fact there was no real romantic overture, you are miserable over the prospect of a future betrayal. Nevertheless, despite bouts of crying, you are in exceedingly buoyant spirits. Thats how I read it

                      I never despised anyone. And I was in love with you the whole time. I just didn't ever want to be romantically involved with a woman when you said you were a woman. I thought at the time you claimed to be a woman you were perhaps just putting me off. But I didn't come to the internet to find anyone anyway.

                      I only saw one video of you.

                      Anyway, I got your message. I don't need to be hit over the head. I thought you promised to hold my hand and sing to me, but as usual, that was just another joke at my expense.

                      We already know that you will win every argument. I do get hurt when you say unkind things to me and I hoped that if I told you I love you, the unkind words would stop. But everything I do seems to be very naive. And no matter how big a fool I am, I am extremely vulnerable every time you say something unkind to me, including our conversation now.

                There are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm.
                One is the danger of supposing that breakfast
                comes from the grocery,
                And the other that heat comes from the furnace.

                - Aldo Leopold –

                GreenString is a beyond biodynamic farm in Petaluma, California. Its founder was a schoolmate of my older siblings. The farm gained notoriety for its revolutionary farming methods. It is the supplier of such stellar restaurants as Alice Waters' Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California.

              alright! Mike Adams goes scientific. Gotta love that.

              From personal experience, a small amount, say less than 10 drops of cilantro extract per day, has a major effect of releasing stored mercury and maybe other things from stores in the body, probably the fat. This then circulates and does harm to the nervous system. No small deal, I can tell you. So I wouldnt say cilantro doesnt work. It just doesnt seem to help to safely excrete the metal

                Getting the toxins out in a hurry is the key to any detox.

                As a result of mobilizing toxins trapped in your body, the kidneys and liver take "the hit" so to speak as they get overburdened with these poisons entering the bloodstream!

                But we already know how to do this! The real answer was studied and proven in the 40's.

                And again you probably would never have thought of this one either as it is natural and simple to do at home without a expensive clinical visit or ANY processed chemicals.

                https://youtu.be/1Ggit4Zhx8s

                And notice the RO water filter tap in the video.

                You MUST use RO filtered or distilled water (I'd purchase distilled water for this) and ONLY use very good containers!!!

                This causes the liver to dump toxins and relieves the burden on both the liver and kidneys…

                …If you don't believe this works just look up the massive evidence!!!

                AND THERE ARE NO negative side effects (even if you don't think it works, there is zero risk if performed correctly).

                Proven effective for over 75 years!!!!!

          If you don't replace these minerals with pure ones after the detox is complete your body will "take up" anything it can find to replace them and you could end up with the same old metals in your system again.

      EDTA is much more risky and potentially hard on the body than holistic methods, stock. Or so my functional medicine docs have told me. Citrus pectin, clays, zeolite, mobilizers of heavy metals followed by binders can accomplish the same.

      EDTA given carefully and monitored to prevent re-uptake or flooding of internal organs with excessive levels of toxins is OK. Must be done by a very skilled practitioner. I was advised against it when I likely had mercury poisoning due to Lyme disease, having mercury amalgams, & other toxic exposures.

      The EDTA (if memory serves) was recommended to be given slowly to prevent kidney, liver, or other organ damage. That's what I remember being told when I embarked on my first chelation & having my mercury amalgams removed.

      We had some discussion here on the "combatting effects of radiation" Forum in the first couple of years after 3/11. Actually, extensive discussion.

      EDTA and the other one (name slips my mind right now) can be very effective if carefully administered by a competent physcian, and the patient is monitored to prevent adverse outcomes.

      FYI:

      http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/ingredientmono-1032-EDTA.aspx?activeIngredientId=1032&activeIngredientName=EDTA

      "Chelation: What's the Harm?
      368,379 people killed, 306,096 injured and over $2,815,931,000 in economic damages"

      Haven't vetted the info. just above; so not sure if this is credible in terms of adverse outcomes and deaths.

I did a somewhat simplified version of his chelation protocol in 2008 or 2009. Really turned my health around, and eliminated lots of neurological symptoms I had from mercury overload & Lyme disease.

      stock, good for you, doing your research on DMSA (yeah, that's it) and EDTA.

      Last year my integrative medicine doc put me on Welchol as a chelator and to help gut issues. Read last year it's used in cases of acute radiation poisoning to help lessen gut trauma from radiation damage to epithelial cells. Worth looking up.

      Doc put me on it for awhile to help with digestive issues. Who knows, maybe it helped after all the 3/11 radiation exposure. Shared the NOAA video & info re: radiation levels being 500,000 times background levels. And think that was just for Reactor 1.

      Remember the story here on that? Good one.

      Anyway, it was nice not being looked at like some kind of loony toons. But I guess you can't argue with NOAA stats, right?

    Various places in the world have received massive rainfalls relatively recently. Where did all of this water come from?

    Here is one idea: the water molecules were, until relatively recently, held within the web of life, in the animal and plant kingdoms, but with the utter degradation (death) that has occurred on a huge scale around the world, these molecules of water have been released. Consider the loss of the life in the Pacific, as well as the tropical rain forests, actually trees are dying everywhere.

    This makes much more water available for delivery.

The history reads that it was a land without a people for a people without a land, those touched by brilliance to push the boundaries of human accomplishment, Prometheus-style. No matter that it was built with exploited labor; they are not included in the history anyway. No matter that it was done to kill hundreds of thousands of civilians; there is no memorial here for them.

    Things will continue on in Los Alamos, no matter who is elected U.S. president in November. The political roots run deeper than the surface justifications of security or scientific advancement. And like the rest of the United States, the lasting effects Los Alamos has had on the planet will be felt for millennia to come, if humanity outlasts the product of its labor for at least 24,100 years—the half-life of plutonium-239."

  • Real Medical Industry Views and Practices on Thyroid Decision Making After Fukushima
    Well, 2 interesting points. They don't talk about blasting the individual with radioactive Iodine 131 to totally blow away the thyroid and for sure kill it…..there is also serious damage to other body parts in that macabre "treatment". And yes it is a real, and used, "medical treatment".

    Rather than "cut it out" they SIMPLY inject them with massive amounts of radiation to destroy the organ in situ. How "clean". sarc.

    Point 2, they talk about patient involvement in the decision, which is good, but they do not once discuss the reality of living without a thyroid. Thyroid is very essential and controls our entire metabolism. There are tons of ramifications of trying to live with no thyroid, medications, testing, lots of cost and time. This should certainly be a very important part of that discussion with the patient, but it is ignored.

    Young people in Japan are now being diagnosed, not just with cysts, but with real cancer, in great numbers. The Fukushima Furoshiki is in vogue now. Like the Chernobyl necklace. Don't know what I speak of? Google it.

    Did you know: You can make a year's worth of laundry detergent for you and your family for under $20?

    An average family can spend over $70 on store-bought detergent per year. Making your own isn't only better for the environment, it can save you over 80 percent — and it only takes three ingredients.

    First, take one bar of natural soap (like castile or a gentle glycerin soap) and finely grate it with a cheese grater. Then, take the soap flakes and sprinkle in one cup of washing soda and one cup of borax, sealing your new cleaning concoction in an airtight container.

    When it's laundry time, mix in about 1-2 tablespoons per load. It doesn't take much with this concentrated material — one batch of super-soap can get you through 40-50 loads.

    Make more as needed, and you can even add powdered fabric softener and essential oils for a fresh scent. And yes, it'll even work in your high-efficiency washing machine too.

If you're a lacto-ovo vegetarian, or eat eggs, you can drop an egg into your soup for the last few minutes. Pastured eggs from fowl eating slugs & bugs are the best. This will make the soup very nutrient dense. It's good with miso. We like it here, too.

    Japanese Shocked, Reactors Rocked, by Major Earthquake in July

    Kashiwazaki-Kariwa complex

    A major earthquake hit Japan July 16 offshore of Honshu, the country’s largest island, started a fire at the world’s biggest commercial reactor complex and battered its seven waste fuel cooling pools so badly that they all flooded and one leaked contaminated water to the Sea of Japan.

    The quake smashed open at least 40 barrels of radioactive waste, wrecked a 300-ton ceiling crane and caused radioactive cobalt, iodine and chromium to be spewed into the atmosphere. Most of these consequences were kept secret or went undetected for days.

    They also produced one of the most terrifying sentences ever buried in a newspaper. As reported deep in the New York Times, the Tokyo Electric Company (Tepco) has admitted that “the force of the shaking caused by the earthquake had exceeded the design limits of the reactors, suggesting that the plant’s builders had underestimated the strength of possible earthquakes in the region.”

      Gov't to use state funds for cleanup of heavily contaminated Fukushima areas

      AUG. 20, 2016 TOKYO —
      The Japanese government plans to use state funds for radiation cleanup activities in evacuation areas most seriously contaminated by the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster, government sources said Friday.

      It is the first government plan to decontaminate so-called difficult-to-return zones, which include a large portion of the two towns hosting the crippled nuclear complex and some areas of other nearby municipalities in Fukushima Prefecture.

      The move is intended to expedite the cleanup process, but may draw criticism from the public because it will effectively reduce the financial burden for plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc. over one of the world’s worst nuclear crises.

      Under the current legal framework, decontamination costs are first shouldered by the state, and TEPCO is told to reimburse those expenses in time. But as costs are expected to far exceed the earlier estimated 2.5 trillion yen ($25 billion), the utility has called for more financial support.

      The government plans to conduct decontamination work inside difficult-to-return zones where around 24,000 people used to live over 337 square kilometers, the sources said.

      The work within designated “reconstruction bases” …

        will include removing buildings, replacing soil and paving roads.

        TEPCO will be asked to only shoulder costs to clean existing facilities and infrastructure that will continue to be used within the reconstruction bases.

        The government hopes to officially endorse the plan possibly this month, the sources said.

        Following the Fukushima nuclear disaster, which was triggered by a huge earthquake and tsunami in March 2011, the government issued evacuation orders affecting 11 municipalities near the plant.

        The areas have been reclassified into three categories based on radiation levels—a zone where evacuation orders are ready to be lifted, a zone where habitation is restricted and a zone where residents will have difficulty returning for a long time.

        The areas subject to evacuation orders have gradually been reduced, with the government setting a goal to lift all the remaining orders apart from those for the difficult-to-return zones by next March.

        For the difficult-to-return zones where the government plans costly intensive radiation cleanup efforts, it hopes to lift the evacuation orders in five years’ time.

    Man’s leukemia deemed result of his work at Fukushima plant
    THE ASAHI SHIMBUN
    August 20, 2016

    The labor ministry said a man who developed leukemia by helping in clean-up efforts at the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant is entitled to work-related compensation.

    It marks the second such case since the 2011 nuclear disaster.

    The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare recognized that the cancer was due to exposure to radiation at the facility and said the government will cover his medical expenses.

    The ministry said Aug. 19 that the man, who is in his 50s, was involved in removing debris and repairing machinery that handled radioactive water at the plant between April 2011, a month after the triple meltdown triggered by the earthquake and tsunami disaster, and January 2015.

    His accumulative radiation exposure was 54.4 millisieverts.

    The man worked for a contractor with Tokyo Electric Power Co., the operator of the nuclear complex.

    He was diagnosed with leukemia in January 2015, and filed application for worker’s accident compensation at the Fukushima Labor Standards Inspection Office, a regional branch of the ministry.

    Under the ministry’s guidelines, eligibility for work-related compensation in such cases is granted if leukemia is diagnosed after the person worked for more than a year in an assignment which resulted in an annual dose of more than 5 millisieverts.

    Legal papers depict Hanford managers eager to cut back on safety

    Susannah Frame, KREM August 18, 2016

    Legal documents filed by the Washington state attorney general, the advocacy group Hanford challenge and the local 598 pipefitters union detail a trail of decisions by managers at Hanford that, according to the records, explain why a record number of workers have been exposed to suspected chemical vapors and are suffering adverse health effects from them in the last three months.

    The documents paint a picture of a government contractor eager to cut back on safety protections for the workforce, even during some of the most hazardous work conducted in years. Then, the attorney general and Hanford challenge contend managers didn’t respond accordingly, but instead looked the other way as workers began getting sick in record numbers.

    “WRPS’ position is simple defiance, and shows an unreasonable willingness to sacrifice the health of Hanford workers. Sadly, this is a repetition of a pattern that has occurred for over 20 years (at Hanford),” wrote Hanford Challenge attorneys in a legal motion filed on July 21.

    “The federal government (US Dept. of Energy) is not transparent about what’s going on. They provide misinformation repeatedly. And those aren’t my words, a federal judge a year ago blasted the federal government about …

      a lack of transparency around Hanford. So this is just more of the same, frankly,” said state Attorney General Bob Ferguson.

      Trouble Begins

      The legal motions were filed in federal court as part of an emergency action to ask a judge to intervene to force the US Department of Energy, which owns Hanford, and its contractor, Washington River Protection Solutions (WRPS) to increase worker protections.

      According to the documents, the trouble began in March. That’s when WRPS began the complicated and dangerous task of pumping out 800,000 gallons of radioactive and chemically contaminated waste from an infamous underground holding tank known as AY-102. This is the first double shell tank to leak at Hanford and was the subject of a 2013 investigation by KING 5, “Hanford’s Dirty Secrets.”

      Anytime hot, volatile waste is disturbed, as in the AY-102 pumping project, a higher risk of chemical vapor emissions exists. To gear up, WRPS beefed up safety measures such as putting all employees in the field on oxygen tanks called SCBA (self-contained breathing apparatus). Managers also increased the area in which people had to be on SCBA.

      Safety downgrade decision

      The safety strategy appeared to be working, until a major decision was made in April, one month into the pumping project. On April 13, WRPS chief operating officer, Robert Gregory, sent an email alerting employees that vapor sampling results showed gases venting from the transfer of the waste …

        contained such low levels of toxic chemicals that they would not be harmful to workers.

        “On April 13, 2016, WRPS Chief Operating Officer Robert Gregory announced that sampling data justified eliminating the use of SCBA or other respiratory protections in the impacted farms altogether, except for a small vapor control zone,” wrote Bob Ferguson in the motion. “In doing so, WRPS relied on the same flawed monitoring results and techniques that (a 2014 group of the department of energy’s experts) criticized as inadequately protective.”

        The expert panel referred to by Ferguson was assembled by the Department of Energy after a 2014 series of reports by KING 5, “The Human Toll of Hanford’s Dirty Secrets.” The series revealed a pattern of deception regarding the serious hazards of chemical vapors by the federal government going back decades. The series prompted the $2 million dollar study by the Savannah River tank vapor assessment team. The experts found that WRPS was not using data that reflected the impact of short bursts of chemical vapors that are capable of causing “adverse health effects, particularly upper respiratory (problems).” The blue ribbon panel had harsh criticism for the way WRPS sampled and analyzed air after a vapor episode.

        “The current program is not designed to detect and is incapable of detecting and quantifying this type of acute exposure event,” wrote the vapor team.

        “(The Savannah River experts) stated that relying primarily …

          upon long-term monitoring, after-the-fact grab samples, or non-chemical-specific readings is inadequate…Yet WRPS’s Chief Operating Officer, Robert Gregory, admitted that WRPS still relies on that flawed approach,” wrote Hanford Challenge attorneys.

          After the Gregory email WRPS did indeed stop mandatory SCBA for all employees and shrunk the area where employees had to don the protective gear. Two weeks later, workers began getting exposed to suspected chemical vapors in record numbers.

          Exposures increase

          “The impact of the decision to reduce protective gear was borne by the workers just two weeks later when, starting April 28, 2016, more than 40 tank farm workers required medical treatment for exposure to chemical vapors in and around the tank farms over a five-day period,” wrote Ferguson.

          The attorney general said the decision to reduce worker protections was especially troublesome considering ‘WRPS’s own limited monitoring data’ at the time showed dangerous levels of ammonia coming out of the venting systems connected to the underground nuclear waste tanks involved in the pumping.

          “These exhaust levels greatly exceed the established occupational exposure limit for ammonia…and are at levels that are known to cause disabling effects even during brief exposures,” wrote Ferguson. …

            “Despite these warnings, WRPS reduced the size of its protective areas and then tried to assure workers the areas were ‘safe’….“This reduction (in safety protocols) resulted in harm to human life. Of the more than 50 workers exposed this spring, some were exposed in areas that would have required respiratory protection prior to the reduction in size of the vapor control zone,” wrote Ferguson.

            Victim speaks out

            “It makes you angry that they’re using you as a piece of cord wood, you’re just a number, a rock, a brick. You’re just a piece that they use until you’re not good to them anymore,” said 24 year Hanford veteran Steve Ellingson. He is one of the workers who experienced an exposure to vapors after the reduction in safeguards. Since his exposure in April he’s experienced difficulty breathing, a burning sensation in his lungs and extreme exhaustion. He’s been prescribed to use a rescue inhaler to open up his lungs four times a day.

            “Right now my lungs hurt all the time. It’s a dull ache all the time across my chest. (It) never goes away,” said Ellingson. Ellingson was featured in several KING 5 reports in 2014 that first exposed the vapor problem at the site. He was one of the workers victimized that year as well. He said getting another exposure makes him worry he’ll never completely heal.

            “I was knocked all the way back to square one,” said Ellingson. “It feels like it’s getting worse every day. I believe from what I hear from other people …

              Since the late 1980’s workers at Hanford have been attempting to clean up the nuclear waste mess left behind from the production of plutonium at the site to fuel the bomb dropped on Nagasaki during World War II. Production continued to beef up the country’s nuclear arsenal throughout the Cold War. The process of extracting plutonium from spent fuel rods created a toxic legacy in Eastern Washington – 56 million gallons nuclear waste buried in aging, leaky underground tanks. As the waste decays and is disturbed during activities such as pumping projects, it vents chemical vapors through stacks attached to the underground holding tanks. Some of the chemicals measured at Hanford include mercury, dimethyl mercury, nitrous oxide, furan, ammonia, and formaldehyde.

              Neither WRPS nor the Department of Energy would conduct an interview for this report, but the Department of Energy did issue a statement. A spokesperson wrote safety of the workforce is “a top priority” but that “based on data to date, and the safety measures implemented by the contractor, the Department believes workers are safe while at the worksite.”

              Here is the entire statement:

                New vapor monitoring and detection equipment has been deployed over the past two years including small, personal monitoring and detection devices; sensors for particles 1/10 the size of a grain of table salt, and scanners, mobile and portable spectrometers that detect ammonia, nitrous oxide and other various volatile organic compounds. In addition we have introduced an array of infrared detection systems and different types of stack and area sampling equipment for field testing in response to these reports. A mobile laboratory is also available that can detect in real time, a wide range of chemicals at levels as low as a few parts per trillion at the site of potential vapor reports. All of these methods are to help the Department get a better understanding of how to reduce or eliminate potential vapor events.

                The department continues to review all reports of odors and/or symptoms and is working towards better understanding how to further address these concerns to ensure a safe environment for workers that is protective of their health."

    Canadian nuclear boss jokes about whistleblowers and muzzles environmentalist
    By Mike De Souza | August 18th 2016

    Shawn-Patrick Stensil shook his head in disbelief as he walked out of a Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission public meeting on Thursday.

    The commission invited Stensil to speak about nuclear safety issues, but wouldn't let him comment about a remarkable anonymous letter that raised serious engineering and procedural issues questioning whether the agency was doing a bad job overseeing reactors. The commission's president and chief executive, Michael Binder, led a series of jokes ridiculing the whistleblowers the night before, prompting a public rebuke by the union representing government scientists. Today, Binder cut off Stensil’s microphone.

    The commission also declined to review Stensil's 26-page analysis of the safety issues raised in the anonymous letter.

    "I've never been shut down before like that by the commission," said Stensil in an interview with National Observer after his brief appearance at the meeting.

    Stensil is a senior energy strategist at Greenpeace Canada, who has researched nuclear safety policy issues for more than a decade and testifies frequently before federal panels about the issue.

      industry. In other words, it is there to ensure that Canada’s nuclear reactors don’t meltdown and cause a full-scale catastrophe.

      "I've been intervening before the commission for 15 years," Stensil said. "They didn't want to see any outside opposing views. They didn't want to ask why it happened in the first place and it also shows that the Harper government is still alive and well at the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission. Outside views aren't welcome. Dissenting views aren't welcome. And that's a legacy of Harper that the Trudeau government needs to clean up."

      The letter, released by Stensil, a nuclear campaigner from Greenpeace Canada, to media outlets in July, was addressed to Binder, who was appointed by the government of former prime minister Stephen Harper. Stensil had received a copy of the letter, along with other senior officials at the commission in May. It suggested that commission employees were not doing their job properly, withholding critical information from commissioners, prior to decisions on nuclear safety.

      The letter also alleged that some nuclear plants were violating safety rules and had licenses that were approved following inadequate reviews by staff, who then withheld information from commissioners prior to decisions. The author or authors said that the commission, as a result, failed to identify safety risks at nuclear plants and impose conditions to reduce the likelihood of serious accidents.

        these types of failings to the errors which led to the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan that was triggered by an earthquake and tsunami in 2011, causing serious damage in its wake.

        "It's very clear from this letter that people (the authors) have inside information about what's going on at the CNSC," Stensil said. "I've seen some of these issues raised in debates internally that I've gotten through access to information (requests). There's a credibility issue here. And when you start dismissing a dissenter as not having expertise, it really shows why they probably did this in an anonymous fashion."

        But when Stensil began addressing the whistleblowers' concerns, Binder told him that the commission had discussed the anonymous letter the night before and proceeded to cut off the environmentalist’s microphone.

        Whistleblowers targeted by jokes, ridicule

        At that previous meeting, the commission heard testimony from several staff, led by Peter Elder, an engineer and strategic advisor at the commission who presented a report that dismissed the concerns raised by the whistleblowers and defended the commission’s oversight and integrity.

        Binder and the commission’s senior staff went a bit further, suggesting that the letter’s author or authors were incompetent.

        “So I’m listening to all of you and then the question is was this letter written by our staff?” Binder asked on Wednesday evening, prompting some laughter from staff. “Because the conclusion (from…

          After another staff member questioned the expertise of of whoever wrote the letter, Binder decided to make a joke about it.

          “So if you’re correct, we’re into a conspiracy theory,” Binder said, drawing more laughter.

          After several staff members further ridiculed the letter and commended their boss, Binder, for raising good points, another executive, Ramzi Jammal, the executive vice president and chief regulatory operations officer intervened to echo their comments.

          “I’m pretty sure that somebody is going to exploit the declaration of our specialists here in respect to the letter, so I’ll let that take place,” said Jammal. “At no time did we (senior staff) withhold information from the commission, and at no time (were) the public or the reactors unsafe.”

          Binder’s behaviour prompted a rebuke from the union that represents the commission's scientists and which has been trying to ensure that its collective agreements with government include protections for scientific integrity to prevent muzzling. …

            "Our members who are involved in protecting the safety of Canadians do not take their duties or concerns lightly,” said Steve Hindle, vice-president of the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada. “It is unfortunate that Mr. Binder has chosen to make light of such an important issue. But his reaction will not prevent our members from defending the public interest.”

            Earlier this month, PIPSC president, Debi Daviau, issued a statement saying that a number of her members were concerned that the anonymous letter and the dismissal of its concerns were more evidence of muzzling.

            Stensil also noted that Jammal has previously had a history of reacting angrily to whistleblowers. Records from a meeting with the union officials in June 2014, show that Jammal asked to have concerns about muzzling added to the agenda in response to PIPSC’s “Big Chill” report which accused the former Harper government of muzzling scientists and making decisions that were putting public health and safety at risk.

            The minutes of that meeting, provided to National Observer by Stensil, show that Jammal then asked union officials to publicly contradict the findings from that report which suggested nuclear scientists were being asked to manipulate data or hide safety issues. The union never followed up, Stensil noted. …

              When asked why Stensil was not allowed to comment, the commission sent National Observer a statement explaining that it didn't want public input.

              "The Technical Review Report regarding the anonymous letter was added to the Commission’s meeting agenda on August 3, 2016 as an information item," the commission said in the statement. "This was added in order to allow Members of the Commission to consider the findings of the technical review in its public proceeding. The Commission did not invite or solicit interventions, or input from the public, for this item.

              "While there were some unsolicited submissions sent to the Commission in relation to this item, the Commission determined that these submissions would not be admitted into the record for this Commission meeting. The meeting minutes, when available, will reflect any direction from the Commission in regard to this meeting item dealing with the anonymous letter, technical review report or associated documents."

    (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Enice Marsh remembers the black clouds of “poison stuff” that billowed from the northwest after British atomic bomb tests in the 1950s spread fallout across swathes of South Australia.

    A Federal Nuclear Lawsuit has been filed against President Obama, Secretary of State Kerry, Director of CIA John O. Brennan, Secretary of Department of Defense Ashton Carter, Secretary Department of Treasury Jacob Lew, Secretary Department of Energy Ernest Moniz, and Secretary of Department of Commerce Penny Pritzker

    In D.C. on 8 August 2016, Grant Smith the director of the Institute for Research: Middle East Policy, filed this lawsuit in Federal court because U.S. aid to Israel has been illegal under our own laws passed in the 1970’s which prohibits aid to nuclear powers who have not signed the Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty.

    During investigations into the illegal diversion of weapons-grade uranium from U.S. contractor NUMEC to Israel in the mid-1970s, Senators Stuart Symington and John Glenn amended the 1961 Foreign Assistance Act to ban any aid to clandestine nuclear powers that were not NPT signatories, such as Israel.

    The U.S. is finalizing a ten-year memorandum of understanding which will reportedly boost aid to $4-5 billion per year. The director of the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy (IRmep) in the suit challenges the authority of the president and U.S. federal agencies to deliver such foreign aid to Israel. Such aid violates longstanding bans on aid to non-signatories to the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT) with nuclear weapons programs. …

      Since the bans went into effect U.S. foreign aid to Israel is estimated to be $234 billion.

      Excerpted from the lawsuit:

      Israel has long had a nuclear weapons program and continually engages in activities which should trigger the cited provisions of Symington & Glenn [Amendments]. Among the most authoritative and complete recently released status updates about Israel’s nuclear weapons program was contained in Critical Technology Assessment in Israel and NATO Nations, a report chartered by the U.S. Department of Defense, prepared for the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense and presented in April of 1987.

      The report was publicly released through an unnecessarily arduous Freedom of Information Act lawsuit before this court on February 10, 2015. The report revealed the advanced state of Israel’s program in 1987:

      “The SOREQ and the Dimona/Beer Shiva facilities are the equivalent of our Los Alamos, Lawrence Livermore and Oak Ridge National Laboratories. The SOREQ center runs the full nuclear gamut of activities from engineering, administration and non-destructive testing to electro-optics, pulsed power, process engineering and chemistry and nuclear research and safety. This is the technology base required for nuclear weapons design and fabrication.”

      Israel’s nuclear weapons facilities’ were essentially a scaled-down version of U.S. facilities says the report, “The capability of SOREQ to support SDIO and nuclear technologies is almost an exact parallel …

    Challenge to nuclear waste facility heads to trial

    Pilgrim neighbors based 2014 lawsuit on permits and property values

    By Christine Legere

    Aug. 18, 2016

    BOSTON — After two years of waiting, neighbors of Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station will go to trial Monday in state Land Court to challenge construction of a massive storage facility for nuclear spent fuel on plant property.

    The lawsuit, filed in 2014 by a handful of residents who live within two miles of the plant, alleges that the nuclear waste facility will affect property values.

    The town of Plymouth improperly granted permits to Entergy, Pilgrim’s owner-operator, in 2013, they say. They contend a special permit process with a public hearing should have been required.

    Defendants in the case are Entergy; Plymouth Building Commissioner Paul McAuliffe, who issued a building permit for a concrete pad where massive dry casks would store spent fuel; and members of the Plymouth Zoning Board of Appeals, who upheld the building commissioner’s actions.

    When the suit was filed, the large concrete pad had not yet been built. Since then, Entergy has constructed the pad about 150 feet from the shore of Cape Cod Bay and moved three massive casks that store 200 spent fuel assemblies onto it.
    Pilgrim stores more than 3,000 …

      spent fuel assemblies in a large pool above the reactor. Those will eventually be placed in dry casks.

      Margaret Sheehan, an attorney for the abutters, said last week the challenge against Entergy and town officials came down to whether the spent fuel facility “is a matter of right or does it require a special permit, which would require a public hearing and allow Plymouth to add conditions.”

      No one envisioned that spent fuel would be stored indefinitely at the Pilgrim site more than 40 years ago, when the town granted the original special permit for the operation, Sheehan said.

      Neighbors testified last week, along with an economist who backed their argument on property impacts with studies that showed properties near spent-fuel storage facilities would lose value.

      After the testimony, Entergy filed a motion to dismiss the case, saying the plaintiffs had failed to prove they had standing to file the suit. Standing requires that plaintiffs show they will suffer more harm than others in the community as a result of whatever action they are protesting.

      In ruling that the abutters did have standing, the Land Court referred to a Plymouth bylaw that regulates the light industrial district, where the nuclear power station and spent fuel storage facility are located.

      That district allows businesses of “light intensity, clean operational nature” under the bylaw. Heavier industries, such as the nuclear plant, would require special permits, which Pilgrim …

        secured decades ago.

        The court said the general purpose of Plymouth’s bylaw, coupled with the additional requirement that special permits be granted only when the suggested use would not cause a nuisance or adverse impact on the neighborhood, “make the protection of property values an implicit interest protected in the bylaw.”

        The trial, presided over by Judge Robert Foster, is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. at Land Court, 3 Pemberton Square in Boston.

    The 2 Dimensional View on the Internet is simply than Lemon juice is a "great clean alkalizer of the body with all the spin off health effects". But look at the chart above that I have annotated. Lemon juice is quite the strong acid, how can it alkalize the body (opposite of acid).

    I am going to be using more of the 2D, 3D, and even 4D descriptions in the future, after seeing it used effectively on a review of the Sandy Hook training exercise.

    2D is just what is presented without any real explanation or fact.
    3D is the next, better step, some explanation or fact, maybe even some research or cross reference. But be careful in the 3D world, because the BEST lies contain an element of the truth.
    4D is still better, where the idea is supported with known science or engineering, or real studies that perhaps present tables, the calculation method, the number of tests performed or quantities of "subjects" and maybe the root data.
    5D is 4D but with some original thinking, that ties other lines of thinking and theories into a new hypothesis on how things are really working.
    6D Is the actual testing of the theories and hypothesis that are developed in 5D. Rarely do we ever get to 6D. But think how many people live in the 2D world and how dangerous that is.

      stock. Acid-alkaline is almost too complicated to be practical. No simple understanding suffices. The best is to resort to natures method; fresh and raw foods with lots of herbs, a healthy lifestyle.

      Lemons are acidic but so is the stomach. Acids in the stomach helping to digest food, ionize minerals, release bicarb into the system will all affect PH balances. Breathing out C02 (tax it!) and retaining bicarbonate by the kidneys are the way we naturally keep ph in its narrow limits. Lemons have minerals vitamins and cofactors that make simple acid alkaline assumptions invalid. I wouldnt suck on them though, as they will dissolve teeth.

            Perhaps the safest way to get alkalinity into the body is with lemon juice.
            A person should freeze many lemons. Then take six of them a day and grate them (including the skin).
            The patient takes all six grated lemons every day.

                  BACKGROUND:
                  “In recent years, there has been considerable research on recycling of agroindustrial waste for production of bioactive compounds. The food processing industry produces large amounts of citrus peels that may be an inexpensive source of useful agents.

                  “The present work aimed to explore the phytochemical content, antioxidant, anticancer, antiproliferation, and antigenotxic activities of lemon, grapefruit, and mandarin peels.
                  MATERIALS AND METHODS:
                  Peels were extracted using 98% ethanol and the three crude extracts were assessed for their total polyphenol content (TPC), total flavonoid content (TFC), and antioxidant activity using DPPH (1, 1diphenyl2picrylhydrazyl). Their cytotoxic and mitogenic proliferation activities were also studied in human leukemia HL60 cells and mouse splenocytes by CCK8 assay. In addition, genotoxic/ antigenotoxic activity was explored in mouse splenocytes using chromosomal aberrations (CAs) assay.

                    lowest effective concentration 50% (EC50= 42.97 ?g extract/ mL), and the highest Trolox equivalent antioxidant capacity (TEAC=0.157). Mandarin peel exhibited moderate cytotoxic activity (IC50 = 77.8 ?g/mL) against HL60 cells, whereas grapefruit and lemon peels were ineffective antileukemia. Further, citrus peels possessed immunostimulation activity via augmentation of proliferation of mouse splenocytes (Tlymphocytes). Citrus extracts exerted noncytotoxic, and antigenotoxic activities through remarkable reduction of CAs induced by cisplatin in mouse splenocytes for 24 h.
                    CONCLUSIONS:
                    “The phytochemical constituents of the citrus peels may exert biological activities including anticancer, immunostimulation and antigenotoxic potential.”

                  how do we know lemons are going to cure us of something we dont even know we have? (acidosis). Something somebody wrote in some book somewhere.

                  First we can admit we hardly know anything, especially as non specialists in biochemistry. Is acid ph good, bad, or does it just totally depend on what situation you are talking about?

                  We found that high pH strongly increased the rate of free radical generation in all of the conditions studied
                  http://www.jbc.org/content/283/43/29292.full

                  hmmm free radicals eh? Are they 'good' or 'bad'. evil, or godly?

                  Fibroblasts and epithelial cells (healthy) were found to have a pHG of 6.17–6.36.

                    FREE RADICALS: What they are and how they damage the human body

                    “ANTI-OXIDANTS relationship to alkalization-acidic (pH balance) and free radical destruction
                    “Free radicals are destructive organic molecules responsible for aging, tissue damage and degenerative disease. Being highly unstable, free radicals have to bond with other molecules, thus damaging these other molecules as life is literally leached out of them. Anti-oxidants are protective molecules that prevent free radicals from harming (sucking the life out of) healthy tissue.
                    “Unstable molecules (free radicals) not having an even number of electrons, continuously “seek out” extra electrons that they can “steal” to help stabilize themselves. In the human body, this process of free radicals robbing “the life” from your cells results in untold damage.
                    “Free radicals are labeled “free” because they float around (freely) until becoming stabilized by bonding with other molecules. The “radical” term applies to the wide variety of molecules from which they can steal an electron. However, the damage doesn t end here, as the new molecule formed from (as an example: a piece of a cell wall) thus deprived of its electron becomes another free radical. This “snowball effect” wreaks havoc on healthy tissue and begins the degradation that destroys immune systems.

                      ionized alkaline water act like giant boulders blocking the oncoming snowballs – stopping the free radicals from causing untold damage. Due to the ionizer alkalization, tap water molecules are micro-clustered (reduced to half-size) in order to more easily and efficiently penetrate the body’s cellular structure. And the faster anti-oxidants are absorbed into the body, the more effectively they work.
                      “Some degenerative processes caused by free radicals may be inevitable (such as aging) but others can be prevented (DNA destruction, arteries being clogged).
                      “Free radicals are caused by the body s absorption of environmental pollutants, heavy metals, fertilizer and acid rain run-off, tobacco smoking-chewing and other toxic substances. Free radicals play a significant role in the generation of cancer, strokes and heart disease (to mention but a few of their negative aspects).
                      “Oxidation occurs when O2 (oxygen gas) or free radicals remove electrons (or protons) from bio-molecules one-after-another, which attack the immune system and encourage the onset of illness.

                      “This simple example illustrates the delicate configuration of individual water molecules that enables them to break relatively stronger bonds by converging on them. This is why water is called “the universal solvent” a natural solution that breaks the bonds of larger, more complex molecules. This is the chemistry of life on earth, in water and on land.

                      “Oxidation-reduction reactions
                      “Basically, reduction means the addition of an electron (e-), and its converse, oxidation means the removal of an electron. The addition of an electron, reduction, stores energy in the reduced compound. The removal of an electron, oxidation, liberates energy from the oxidized compound. Whenever one substance is reduced, another is oxidized.
                      “To clarify this, consider any two molecules – A and B. When molecules A and B come into contact, here is what happens:

                      • B grabs an electron from molecule A.
                      • Molecule A has been oxidized because it has lost an electron.
                      • The net charge of B has been reduced because it has gained a negative electron (e-).
                      “In biological systems, removal or addition of an electron constitutes the most frequent mechanism of oxidation-reduction reactions.
                      “Acids and Bases
                      “An acid is a substance that increases the concentration of hydrogen ions (H+) in water. A base is a substance that decreases concentration of hydrogen ions (i.e. increasing concentration of hydroxide ions OH-).
                      “The degree of acidity or alkalinity of a solution is measured in terms of a value known as pH, which is the negative logarithm of the concentration of hydrogen ions:
                      pH = 1/log[H+] = -log[H+]
                      “What is pH?

                      14 on the alkaline end
                      “A solution is neutral when it is pH 7.

                      less than pH 7 are acidic because they contain a higher concentration of H+ ions.
                      Substances higher than pH 7 are alkaline because they contain a higher concentration of OH- than H+.
                      “The importance of balancing pH
                      Living things are extremely sensitive to pH and generally function at optimum levels when nearly neutral. There are certain exceptions, such as portions of the digestive tract.
                      Most interior living matter (excluding cell nucleus) has a 6.8 pH.
                      “Blood plasma and other fluids that surround the cells in the body have a pH of 7.2 to 7.3.
                      Special mechanisms (buffers) help stabilize fluids so cells do not suffer appreciable pH fluctuations. Buffers bond ions and remove them from solution whenever their concentration begins to rise.
                      “Conversely, buffers release ions when their concentration starts falling. This is an important function because many biochemical reactions in living organisms either “release” or “use-up” ions.
                      OXYGEN is TOO MUCH of a good thing – WHY illness begins
                      Oxygen is essential to survival. It is relatively stable in the air but when too much is absorbed into the body, it becomes active, unstable and has a tendency to attach itself to any biological molecule, including molecules of healthy cells.
                      The chemical activity of these free radicals is due to one or more pairs of unpaired electrons.
                      About 2% of the oxygen we breathe becomes active oxygen –increasing to 20% during aerobic exercise.

                      unstable as well as having high oxidation potential. Meaning: they are capable of stealing electrons from other cells.
                      This chemical mechanism is useful in disinfectants (hydrogen peroxide and ozone) used to sterilize wounds and medical instruments. Inside the body these free radicals are of great benefit due to their ability to attack and eliminate bacteria, viruses and other waste products.
                      Active Oxygen in the body
                      Problems arise, however, when too many of these free radicals are loose in the body where they damage normal tissue.
                      Putrefaction starts as microbes in the air invade proteins, peptides and amino acids (eggs, fish, meat) resulting in many unpleasant substances:
                      • Hydrogen sulfide
                      • Ammonia
                      • Histamines

                      • Phenols
                      • Scatoles
                      “These substances are naturally produced in the digestive tract as food is digested. Food spoiled (putrefaction) from microbes in the air is duplicated in the digestive tract by intestinal microbes. All such digestive wastes are pathogenic. Meaning: they cause disease in the body.
                      Hydrogen sulfide and ammonia are liver damaging tissue toxins.
                      Histamines contribute to allergic disorders such as dermatitis, hives and asthma. Indoles and phenols are considered carcinogenic.
                      Because all the waste products mentioned above are toxic and produce active oxygen, the body tries eliminating them by releasing white corpuscles. Problems arise as too many active oxygen molecules (FREE radicals) are produced in the body. They are…

                      extremely reactive and attach themselves to healthy cells, thus damaging them genetically. This electron “theft” created by active oxygen oxidizes tissue – and causes disease.
                      “Anti-oxidants block dangerous oxidation
                      “One way to protect healthy tissue from the ravages of oxidation caused by active oxygen is to provide free electrons to active oxygen radicals, thus neutralizing their high oxidation potential and preventing them from reacting with healthy tissue.
                      Much of the damage caused by carcinogenic substances in food comes from an oxidation reaction in the cell. In this process, an oddball oxygen molecule may damage the cell s genetic code. Researchers believe substances preventing oxidation (ANTI-OXIDANTS) block the damage.
                      “The intake of natural anti-oxidants is vital to the body s defense against cancer.
                      Water treated by electrolysis has increased reduction potential – and the ANTI-OXIDANTS produced by electrolysis is the best solution to the problem of providing a safe source of free electrons to block the oxidation of normal tissue by free oxygen radicals.
                      Ionized alkaline water (or reduced water) with an excess of free electrons to donate to active oxygen is the best solution because:
                      • The reduction potential of water can be dramatically increased over other antioxidants in food or vitamin supplements.
                      • The molecule weight of reduced water is low, making it fast acting and able to reach all tissues of the body in a very short time.”

                  DR. GARY NULL:
                  “You should DRINK AT LEAST ONE GALLON of purified water a day. Most of us drink only at mealtime and when we’re noticeably thirsty. Wrong. You can develop a habit of NOT drinking water and walk around being 66 or 67 percent water, instead of 74 percent, which is what your body needs.
                  When you don’t have the water in you, you won’t ever have the energy you need. The very first thing I do to get people’s energy up is to increase the amount of water in their diet. Immediately, their energy goes up.
                  When someone has dementia, the first thing I do is give them lots of cold water all day, every day. About three weeks later, I start to see their dementia dissipate because they have rehydrated their brains. Unfortunately, your brain actually shrinks as you dehydrate. By DRINKING LOTS OF PURE WATER, you get better neuron activity and better cellular chemistry, and you’re able to detoxify the cells with water.
                  Water has to be pure, free from fluoride, chlorine, and chemicals, which is why I recommend distilled water. To achieve optimum health, I recommend that you DRINK A HALF GALLON TO ONE FULL GALLON PER DAY.”

    Fukushima Health Monitoring-Prior consensus in a secret meeting.

    " It has come to light that the prefectural government had secretly been holding “preparatory meetings” with the experts involved, prior to the committee meetings, in order to review the monitoring results which are open to public. In one preparatory meeting, the review committee members agreed on the analysis of the findings in advance, and signed off on a consensus that “the occurrence of cancer is not related to the nuclear power plant accident”.

    A Fukushima Medical University professor answered by saying that the cancer is not considered a result of the nuclear accident, as in Chernobyl the increase in thyroid cancers was not found until four years after the accident. No other experts argued against this response.

    That day they discussed the very first incidence of thyroid cancer found through the thyroid check for all children.

Are you in a situation whereby the doctors have done necessary tests and said there isn’t anything wrong with you? … These were all my stories until I met with a total cure for them all… His name is Dr. ERO says my mom… I was almost at the point of death. It was that serious that I was just placed on life support even as the doctors didn't know what was wrong with me. My mom just came to my hospital bed one morning and said she had found a solution to all of my sufferings (because that was what I referred to the situation I was in then)… She said she was going through the internet and she came across some testimonies of how some people who had similar cases as mine were all cured off their illnesses through the power of this voodoo man. Without hesitation, I told her to contact the man, Which she did and she went on with the procedures as instructed her by this voodoo man (these procedures, I wasn't aware of because I was in a really bad shape then, And whenever I asked my mom she would say I shouldn't bother myself about that…that it was something she could handle). Not to bore you readers with too much of my story, in seven days from that day my mom told me about the voodoo man, I was cured off this killer disease that was at the verge of taking my life.
