Dear Everybody: PLEASE READ!
They say if a monkey sat at a typewriter long enough he would create the works of Shakespeare. Sadly, it seems if that same monkey had access to nuclear power, he would eventually destroy the world.
Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry in Mainz, Germany looked at the number of meltdowns and the number of operating hours of all civilian nuclear reactors and predicted that we could see a meltdown every 20 years.
Why is this coming up now when the Fukushima accident happened over 2 years ago? For some reason, I, and apparently many others, thought the powers that be would have been on it immediately!! I thought this problem would be a top priority world wide!! Insane world governments seem to think that if they don’t say anything about it, people will think the problem has gone away. “The first thing to be controlled is the media.” Professor Michio Kaku.
DISCLAIMER I don’t know how alarmed one should be, or exactly how grave the situation… the mainstream media is in a blackout about this and the governments and big industry lie to us to promote their own (insane) agenda… but for me… I prefer to err on the side of caution! I went through a period of sadness and anger, and then I did some research. What I can do is.. spread some intelligent info…
The situation is more critical for people living on the west coast, but EVERYONE ON EARTH, will be affected eventually! Acording to Author/Activist Harvey Wasserman, there are 11,000 fuel rods at Fukushima, which can release 13,000 times the radiation of Hiroshima! One of those rods could kill at 15 feet in a matter of minutes!
LET’S TAKE CERTAIN PRECAUTIONS!!!
What to do:
Take Iodine. I am taking an iodine pill weekly. I am not sure how much to take. In the past one could take kelp. Do not take kelp or other seaweed as it may come from the Pacific ocean. Avoid Green Tea as it is mostly from Japan. I would use Ceylon tea, Yerba matte or white tea, **check where it is from!.
Do take miso, ginger, and Garlic.. raw is best, also try using Himalayan salt and kumbacha tea! The effects of radiation are cumulative, so although we all probably have had some exposure; let’s try to minimize it!
* SEAFOOD: Question the origin of ALL seafood. Assume that fish and crustaceans from the Pacific Ocean could be poisoned with radiation. Avoid tuna and other canned fish.
* WATER: Get a good water filter and avoid drinking unfiltered water! Use only filtered water for drinking, cooking and ice. The tap water that flows from your faucet has NOT been treated to rid it of radioactive particles.
* DAIRY PRODUCTS: Milk and milk products from the West Coast states currently have the highest levels of radiation in North America. I use Horizon milk and Mountain High yogurt (from Colorado) and cheese from Midwest minimally… Also I rarely eat out these days, as I don’t know where restaurants get their food!
* PRODUCE: Leafy Vegetables, Wines, Tomatoes, Strawberries….all produce from California or any other West Coast State are also likely to be tainted. Well, I live here, and I am not moving from California unless my kids do! So what to do? Wash everything that you eat, (use produce wash and filtered water).
* MEAT: An animal that eats contaminated vegetation on the West Coast has consumed radiation, and is poisoned. This is any animal from cows, pigs, goats, sheep to wild deer and other game. Primary consumers (vegetarian) consume less pollutants than those higher on the food chain.
* ALSO: Personally, though I have loved walking barefoot on the beaches of the Pacific Ocean in the past.. I will no longer do so in the future.
What are we dealing with here?
Nuclear power plants emit deadly radiation from many different substances, including;
Plutonium, atomic number 94, only occurs in trace amounts in nature but is manufactured in nuclear reactors from uranium-238. It is used as a fuel in nuclear reactors and as an explosive in nuclear fission weapons. “There are 15 isotopes (another form) of plutonium. Pu-239 and Pu-241 are the most abundant of the fissionable isotopes of plutonium. [At the “half-life” the element will be half as deadly as initially]. Pu-239 has a half-life of 24,000 years and Pu-241's half-life is 14.4 years. The plutonium isotope with the shortest half-life of 20 minutes is Pu-233. Plutonium-244, which occurs naturally, has the longest half-life of 80,000,000 years. [So in other words.. this shit isn’t going away any time soon!]
According to Dr. Helen Caldicott, plutonium lodges in the liver and testicles. She says that even a minute amount of plutonium in the testicles emits high doses of radiation to the cells next to it. Recessive mutations can take 20 generations to show up. She expects cancers to become prominent in 2 – 20 years. She calls the nuclear power industry “the prodigal son of the weapons industry.” She says it is a “Trojan Horse used to camoflage” [intent] and that any country with nuclear power also has nuclear weapons. She states that over 1,000,000 have died from the 1986 Chernobyl accident.
Cesium 137 (or caisium 137) has a half life of 30.1 years. It is among the most problematic of the short-to-medium-lifetime fission products because it easily moves and spreads in nature due to the high water solubility of caesium's most common chemical compounds, which are salts. [Why this can spread across the ocean!] As of 2005, caesium-137 is the principal source of radiation in the zone of alienation around the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Together withcaesium-134, iodine-131, and strontium-90, caesium-137 was among the isotopes distributed by the reactor explosion that constitute the greatest risk to health. In April 2011, elevated levels of caesium-137 were also being found in the environment after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disasters in Japan.
A study published in The International Journal of Medicine indicates that more than 14,000 deaths right here in North America can be directly attributed to the release of radioactive material from Fukushima.
You can’t predict where agriculture may be contaminated. A “Hot spot” of contamination can exist right next to another area of untainted food source. A Geiger counter is not so easy (for the lay person) to use and understand, but you can check out this web site:
In Conclusion (waxing philosophical)
We don’t know how long we have. The earth could be hit by an asteroid or be decimated by a super volcano or mega earthquake… you could be killed by a car tomorrow! The people in Chernobyl have been living with radiation for generations. Marianne Barisonek in her book “Cause and Effect” has studied and interviewed them extensively. Important findings indicate that different people have different tolerances for radiation. What would incapacitate one person in a short period of time, seemingly would leave another person untainted for decades. Perhaps humans will live long enough to solve this problem… I hope so. I pray every night for the future, for life on earth, I hope and pray for a miracle.Perhaps this is just the mathematics of the Mayan Calendar’s inevitable conclusion. Perhaps it is just Shiva, calling us all home! Spiritually, Life is a gift, the present is all we ever have. Be a warrior of life! Be a part of anything that is life affirming…. I am not going to stop living!! If it comes down to it (God forbid) I will have a hell of a going away party!!
