First the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) claimed that their research confirms Japanese milk and vegetables are safe for human consumption. They reported that radiation levels are below cancer-causing levels.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has also assessed the problem of radioactive levels at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant.
This concept, known as the Linear No-Threshold Dose hypothesis (LNT), was accepted in 1959 as the global regulating philosophy and remains entrenched despite all scientific evidence to the contrary.
With regard to radiation this belief has been unsuccessful.
It doesn’t cause cancer.
Yet, nuclear power with its real threat of unleashing massive amounts of unnatural radiation into our biosphere has been proven true, not once (with Chernobyl) but twice. The Fukushima influence is still with us and will continue to be for quite some time.
WHO says that by their estimates, the increases in radiation levels since the nuclear plant’s meltdown are below cancer-affecting intensities.
And this projection, they say, encompasses the whole of the island of Japan.
In a document released by the UN agency, neighboring countries have also experienced no spikes in dangerous radiation levels.
WHO expounds that the rest of the world can breathe easy because the radioactive material that has been expelled into our biosphere is simply a negligible exposure level.
The oceans, wildlife and even our food worldwide is safe, according to WHO.
In opposition to WHO and IAEA’s claims are countless real world observational and empirical scientific data from a plethora of independent scientist and experts that assert the fallout from Fukushima has devastated not only the nation of Japan, but poisoned the entire planet.
In May 2011, the Norsk Institute’s online site, which was monitoring worldwide radioactive contamination across the globe. They compiled a list of toxins that were introduced by the Fukushima plume.
Here is a short list of the half-life of five of the radioactive isotopes in the air, food and water that are poisoning us and children:
- Cesium 137: 30 years
- Plutonium 239: 24,000 years
- Strontium 90: 29 years [mimics calcium in the body]
- Uranium 235: 700-million years
- Iodine 131: 8 days [absorbed into the thyroid and gives heavy radiation dose
Here in the US, the EnviroReporter, through their Inspector Alert nuclear radiation monitor, conducted over 1,500 radiation tests after a severe storm in Southern California. The findings were astounding.
The radiation levels were the highest ever seen; at 506% above normal background levels.
The rain in Southern California that was tested was made up of sea mists that moved over the Pacific Ocean.
In the Los Angeles Basin, the higher trade winds showed high levels of radiation. The rain in the area of Santa Monica monitored by the Radiation Station began showing high levels of radiation after fallout was detected in tests beginning in March 2011.
Another independent study conducted by researchers at the CSU Long Beach revealed that kelp collected from the Orange County coast has been tested and shows signs of being radioactive.
These samples revealed radioactive iodine that could only have been released from a nuclear reactor.
Steven Manley of the biology department at CSU Long Beach says that iodine 131 “has an eight-day half-life, so it’s pretty much all gone. But this shows what happens half a world away does affect what happens here. I don’t think these levels are harmful, but it’s better if we don’t have it at all.”
In fact, the entire west coast of America has been reporting record levels of radiation in the sea life and water samples.
From Southern California, to Oregon and up to British Columbia experts in the fields of nuclear science, oceanography, entomology and independent researchers are studying the effects of this massive dose of radiation on the public’s health.
All radioactive contamination is a direct result of Iodine 131. This is only used in nuclear reactors and not found in nature. Cesium, strontium, plutonium and uranium have also been found in record setting levels all along the west coast.
The UN’s WHO and IAEA are not being honest about their assessments of the devastation and global impact of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear meltdown.
Their desperate attempt to down play the radiation levels worldwide are deplorable.
Because of the uncontainable devastation caused by the release of nuclear radiation onto our planet, the Japanese government has decided to go without nuclear power. They have made the humanitarian decision that the more than 16,000 people killed and over 3,000 missing are worth more than the continued use of nuclear power.
Japan is now looking toward renewable energy sources. The government is focused on making a concerted effort to moving away from fossil fuel dependence.
“If Japan has the motivation, it can do this, too,” said Sei Kato, deputy director of the environment ministry’s low carbon society promotion office. “We have the technological know-how.”
Perhaps the fact that Japan is moving away from nuclear energy and focusing their efforts on renewable, clean energy is what has the UN asserting obvious untruths for the sake of confusing the general public’s new found opinion about this dangerous form of energy.
Nuclear-free Japan means the entire nuclear industry may be at risk. Other countries and nations who will see the success of Japan may follow suit.
Clean, efficient energy that does not come with the danger of nuclear fallout just may be the next big “thing” to sweep the international perspective.
And if this happens, the globalists invested in nuclear energy will lose a considerable amount of money.
