14,000 U.S. Deaths Tied to Fukushima Reactor Disaster Fallout … Impact Seen As Roughly Comparable to Radiation-Related Deaths After Chernobyl; Infants Are Hardest Hit, With Continuing Research Showing Even Higher Possible Death Count … An estimated 14,000 excess deaths in the United States are linked to the radioactive fallout from the disaster at the Fukushima nuclear reactors in Japan, according to a major new article in the December 2011 edition of the International Journal of Health Services. This is the first peer-reviewed study published in a medical journal documenting the health hazards of Fukushima. Authors Joseph Mangano and Janette Sherman note that their estimate of 14,000 excess U.S. deaths in the 14 weeks after the Fukushima meltdowns is comparable to the 16,500 excess deaths in the 17 weeks after the Chernobyl meltdown in 1986. – PRNewswire-USNewswire

Dominant Social Theme: It’s bad but it can’t be helped. Nuclear power is the wave of the future.

Free-Market Analysis: The slow poisoning of Japanese citizens is going unreported in the West except for some dedicated journals and web-reports including, importantly, Rense.com, which has stayed on the story seemingly every day. It is a very important one, because it encompasses numerous elite/societal trends and their successes and failures.

There are elite dominant social themes attached to nuclear power, of course. The biggest one has to do with complexity. In a world dominated by an Anglosphere power elite, the way to global domination is via intense complexity. Make a person’s world insupportable without an extremely complex infrastructure and that person will be far more malleable than one who can survive on little.

Bloody sneeze

As an actual Fukushima worker warned one month ago,they are finally recognizing pollen may be the biggest menace for internal exposure.

Pollen directly gets into your lungs,nostrils,and all around in your body. It causes severe internal exposure.

Japanese Forestry Agency has finally started evaluating the risk but it seems too late.

Annually,pollen starts flying from December.

Because this is the first thing that’s ever happened to human-beings,there is no solid study.

However,according to the research conducted in last June by Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology,Japanese cedar leaves contained 177,600 Bq/Kg at that time.

Considering that there has been more fallout since last June,the radiation level may be even higher.

Chernobyl:Consequences of the Catastrophe

In the last days of spring and the beginning of summer of 1986, radioactivity was released from the Chernobyl power plant and fell upon hundreds of millions of people. The resulting levels of radionuclides were hundreds of times higher than that from the Hiroshima atomic bomb.The normal lives of tens of millions have been destroyed. Today, more than 6 million people live on land with dangerous levels of contamination—land that will continue to be contaminated for decades to centuries. Thus the daily questions: how to live and where to live?

In the territories contaminated by the Chernobyl fallout it is impossible to engage safely in agriculture; impossible to work safely in forestry, in fisheries, and hunting; and dangerous to use local foodstuffs or to drink milk and even water. Those who live in these areas ask how to avoid the tragedy of a son or daughter born with malformations caused by irradiation. Soon after the catastrophe these profound questions arose among liquidators’ families, often too late to avoid tragedy.

Fukushima still spewing out deadly radiation

Dr. Mark Sircus,

Here in the following video we are looking at nuclear hell on earth, a night film of the radioactive steam that continues to rise from Fukushima 24 hours a day. Arnie Gundersen, a former nuclear power industry executive, is one of the experts who has been saying from day one that the nuclear crisis in Japan was much worse than they were telling us.

He was absolutely correct. Finally, three months later we are getting  some numbers on what the real dangers are. And finally we can begin to  understand the enormous cover-up of the nuclear doom that is reaching  lungs all over the west coast of America, Canada, Alaska, Hawaii and at  least half of Japan! For infants it’s a terrible valley of death we have  created for them. As we shall see for years all of them have been born  with already polluted bloodstreams and now the very young ones are dying  in greater numbers on the west coast of the United States since  Fukushima blew up.

Fukushima still spewing out deadly radiation

We here in Ireland are facing a deadly nuclear treat in the
form of Seallafield in the UK just a mere 65 miles away if this nuclear plant
experiences any kind of sever accident we are all going to be toast.

To this end I do not trust the official government bodies to
inform me if there is an “event “at this plant so I and a band of loyal committed citizens have decided to conduct our own frequent Geiger counter tests along our east coast .we monitor local fish catches of sea snails and so far we are of the opinion that the average readings indicate a slightly higher reading than normal so we are now investing a more accurate radiation detector device that will give us more precise readings and also hopefully will enable us to post our reading results so that they can be compared with any official readings  if there is any of course!

Japan Nuclear Disaster Update 2nd June 2011

This article was sent in to us today. 

reading it ,highlights the importance on keeping a close eye on our own concerns regarding seallafield in England. I again went down to Wicklow Harbour Wednesday 1st of June to inspect the sea snails catch which was brought ashore .Armed with my Geiger Counter I established that the radiation readings were normal and so we can rest with ease tonight !

It has been nearly three months since Japan suffered the massive earthquake and tsunami that triggered the ongoing nuclear disaster at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant. And yet the utility owner/operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco), only recently confirmed that three of the nuclear reactors suffered complete meltdowns within hours of the earthquake, with reactor Units 2 and 3 suffering the most damage. The containment vessels of those two reactors also developed 7-10 centimeter holes within hours of the March 11 quake, which explains why workers were unable to maintain water levels. This shocking news comes after weeks of Tepco repeatedly denying the severity of the accident, followed by slow-coming admissions that this already devastating situation is, indeed, worse than most previous calculations.

However, if you’ve been following nuclear engineer and expert Arnie Gundersen’s updates on the Fairewinds Associates website, you’d know that most of this is not actually ‘new’ news. Aside from the timeline and the size and shape of the holes, much of this information was discussed by Gundersen early on in the crisis. It is unknown at what point Tepco became aware of this information, and it appears that the ‘discovery’ will likely compromise Tepco’s ability to meet its goal to stabilize the damaged nuclear complex by the end of the year.

France’s Institute for Radiological Protection and Nuclear Safety recommends that an additional 70,000 people be evacuated from areas outside the already established 20 km zone, which includes 10,000 children. These figures are based on radiation data collected by U.S. and Japanese radiation monitors. Presently, Japan’s emergency plans for nuclear disasters rely on an old standard of an 8-10 km evacuation zone, despite considerations to expand this to up to 30 km in 2006.
