Two Major US Aquifers Found to Be Saturated with Uranium

radioactiveBy Joshua Krause

Researchers from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln have just completed a comprehensive analysis of roughly 275,000 water samples from 62,000 locations across the United States. These samples were mostly derived from two massive underground aquifers that supply drinking water for millions of people, and what they reveal about the safety of drinking water in America is absolutely horrifying.

They found that the parts of the High Plains Aquifer (also often referred to as the Ogallala) is saturated with uranium at a level that is 89 times higher than the EPA’s safe limit. The southern half of California’s Central Valley was even worse, with a uranium concentration that is 180 times higher than the EPA’s “maximum contaminant level.”

Altogether, almost 2 million people live above the most contaminated sections of these aquifers. The research suggest that the uranium contamination is being caused by agricultural activities. The nitrates in fertilizers and animal waste can cause the oxidation of naturally occurring uranium, which makes it more water-soluble.

However, this research won’t come as a surprise for many Americans. Two years ago it was revealed that Texas state officials had been concealing the radioactive content of state drinking water for many years, so this is no isolated incident. In truth, the toxicity of the drinking water found across America, is an open secret.

  1. so in other words we the people are the real cause of all of the cancers found in this country since uranium is a positive cause of cancer…sad

      no, its the changes in agricultural production methods since the 1950s.
      also, lying aholes in govt and corps who cover up things because its profitable to do so.

      for example, we have known for years that cell phones cause brain tumors….but…its a big biz. but the “national cancer institute” funded by a”guess who” says its not an issue. yet, additionally, we find that women who carry their cell phones in their bras have a higher incidence of breast tumors. but its just a coincidence…

      • but my point is we the people produce and use the chemicals causing this…

      • Oh for Pete’s sake, act like a victim. You knew about cell phones, you knew about nuclear. You chose to ignore and now you’re blaming Big Biz? I have no love for business actually I have nothing but contempt but the people are as bad, the people give in to every marketing ploy, the people want their short term fix. Now we’re getting into the long term consequences…

  2. If you paid attention before, you could tell that it’s been falling apart for a long time already. Now, the damage becomes more apparent. We knows how much time is still left…

    Is this the karma that befalls us for the nuclear atrocities that rained down on Japan 70 years ago?

  4. “Do not be alarmed….”

  5. Articles like this only depress me. What can I do about it? What can any of us do about it, as well as the myriad of other injustices we have to face? Our votes don’t count, our voices fall on deaf ears. Up is down, right is left, nothing is as it seems, etc., etc. Do we sit around whining about how unfair it all is, or do we try to enjoy what time we have in this life? I choose the latter. Life’s too short to worry about things I can’t change.

    • Try to enjoy this life while there is breakdown and despair all around you? You can’t enjoy life like that. No we change it. We don’t have to DO anything. What we do is stop doing – stop paying the banks, stop paying taxes, stop paying fines. Just stop. Don’t answer their calls, don’t open their mail. If you want to have a good life, that is what you do and let’s see where that gets us because continuing to DO something (ie pay) is a fool’s mission.

      • Right… “stop paying the banks, stop paying taxes, stop paying fines” Yeah, that’ll work… if I want to spend what’s left of my life in prison!

    The Nuke industry has been a great believer in the infinitesimal dilution theory. Now it has reached saturation and it is farming practices to blame? A bullet is dangerous but if you scatter the powder all over the ground the bullet in no longer dangerous..until saturation.

  7. Bernie Sanders plans to do just that! As he says, enough is enough! My vote and full support is going to him to be the next POTUS. #Bernie2016

    • Not to rain on anyone’s parade…but didn’t we just go through the same thing with Obama?

    • I agree. Now, more than ever, we need someone like Bernie Sanders to help lead the fight against the dangerous and destructive part of the 1% … But don’t take our word for it. Check him out – not just what he’s saying now, but what he has said ALL ALONG … and better yet – WHAT HE HAS DONE … His record speaks for itself.

      • He’s voted for war repeatedly. He supports Israel. Enough said. Besides it’s the system stupid.

        • Pls. get yourself informed so you can stop sounding like the MSM! I don’t think you should be calling other people stupid! Bernie is against war. He supports education over war! Enough said!

        No thanks, I’m not voting for socialism…

        • It’s been a yr. and you still don’t know he’s a democratic socialist! No ism to fear, Joan! #Bernieorbust

    • You’re a little late to the party, Cindy. Most Americans realize the game is up and Bernie will flame out just like all populist candidates always have in the past. The controllers have already chosen the president. These debates and silly festivities you take seriously are for show, nothing more.

    • Why would you vote for a flaming, self-described communist! Did you never study the history of the Bolshevik Revolution, or what followed after? Communism has never worked, anyplace it’s been tried; what makes you think it would work here??

      • HE IS NOT A COMMUNIST! He is the most honest politician to come along in our lifetime and if Americans blow our only chance of taking America back, we will get what we deserve, which will include anther senseless war! Bernie Sanders for President only!

        • Evidently you have no clue to what “honesty’ entails. Seriously, do some research on his voting record, at least. How “honest” is it, for any politician to campaign as an “independent” and then vote for every liberal democrat bill- – “in opposition to” anything else that’s offered. Old stump-jumper bernie is another one who wants to “spread the wealth around” and make college tuition “free”! Didn’t your parents teach you “there is NO free lunch”? Someone has to work and pay for it. In other words, take money and goods from those who have “worked and earned it” and give it to the do-nothing couch potatoes. Don’t you think we’ve had enough of that over the past six, or eight years?

        • Someone stated the same thing to me about Bernie being a communist. I ignored them. Your a pit bull. I like that.

          Anything that ends in -ism…is a BAD thing…bernie is like THAT?

    • Joan Camara | July 6, 2016 at 7:39 pm | Reply

      You like socialism then? Wow..really pitiful!

  8. I was thinking, “So now Uranium is readily available in the soil…to the extent where it can contaminate at 89 times what should be believed to have been the ‘norm?’ Ummm…so why are we up in arms about Iran having Uranium shipments for? Why did we invade Iraq for having ‘yellow cake’ shipments?”

  9. Don’t waste your time. The powers that be have already chosen their next puppet… and I’m pretty sure it ain’t Bernie.

  10. Sorry my public school education is showing, Betsy! That’s what you do, go around putting down other woman?! Any who, don’t have time for a rebuttal w/someone who sounds like they have given up! I for one am not going to roll over and play dead for the elitist! Humm, and I wonder why Bernie is running if he knows trouble is lurking? ( I refuse to use the words you just threw out into the universe, thank you very much!) You can either sit back and watch the revolution that is happening or be part of it! Cheers….

      I am not trying to “put you down” in any way, shape, or form. I am trying to wake you up. The world doesn’t work the way you believe it does. We have all been taught to believe in wrong things by government approved public education. I have in no way given up – but I am not about to waste my time and energy in make-believe land. There are many other things to be done to get ready.

  11. It is not over! How easily you give up my god! What have we done? What have you done? Then don’t just fall apart and say it’s over, it’s over. We’re going to make them poor aren’t we? We’re going to stop paying banks and governments. Stop buying new things and start living in away that is appropriate to a world in dire need of restoration. Get off fossil fuels and get off money. Find other ways. You probably cannot get off it completely and you shouldn’t try because you want to have a fairly decent life. However, we have to hold back in terms of luxury for a while as we work together to share our material things and our skills. We’ll get to know each other. It will be a good thing. Start now and practice because we are not used to talking to our neighbors and leaning on them. But of course, the lean is mutual.

  12. Don’t waste your time. If voting had had any effect we wouldn’t be in this mess. We’ve been voting for a century. Give it up. You’re only admitting your own enslavement when you vote. You’re only saying you agree to the system when you vote. We can make our own system, it’s not hard. We have done nothing, we’ve just gone along. Well we had to face the music sometime. We have immense power.

  13. Well, good luck to you and Bernie, then. But from what I’ve read about him in the last couple of days, personally I wouldn’t vote for him EVER.

    • I would ask you what you have read but why?! I’m sticking w/the most honest politician in my lifetime (I’m 60 and I’m guessing you’re 20 something?) that is fighting for US! Good luck to all Americans! Bernie2016

      • Wrong, Cindy; I’m 62. I’m a conservative and I support the 2nd amendment. Got it?

        Honest Politician? There is no such thing.

      • We need more youngsters, like yourself, to fight for Bernie. Terry & I are both 72. Two years younger then Bernie.

  14. So all the fracking in Oklahoma which sits very, very near the High Plains Aquifer has NOTHING to do with all this.. (roling eyes)
    Oklahoma was recently declared as having the most earthquakes of anywhere on the planet… all due to fracking.
    Really folks, this is where the contamination is coming from! But it will not be in the news for everyone pretends fracking is safe, harmless and OH makes great money! One day Oklahoma will be an underwater state….. do your science homework…

    • I’m not so sure that fracking is the cause of uranium saturation; I have never heard that theory anyway. But I do agree that fracking is not safe or harmless. Where I live in north Texas, we never used to have earthquakes until fracking began. Since then we have had several per day. And in those earthquake zones, natural gas has been seeping thru cracks in the ground causing explosions. They try to blame the explosions on the utility companies supplying natural gas. One home (and the people living in it) that was blown to bits was all electric.

  15. It must be nice to be able to remain so naive in the midst of an awakening. America has this rabbit hole, Cindy. It’s really deep. You need to edge closer and take a peek over the edge because right now you look really silly in your rah rah cheerleader skirt. Go ahead and get all self-righteous and pissy with me like you did everyone else here trying to wake you up.

    • Such a nice comment! You have a fantastic day! I have things to go fight for! Enjoy your life! Bernie2016….

      • Happy to know that you are a warrior. Terry & I are Twin Souls, dedicated to bankrupt the cancer industry. We have been presented the shield for our natural human immune system and have been sharing the gifts of knowledge we have received with everyone for the last 8 years. Is there room for one more cause for you to fight for?

  16. As a matter of fact, I just watched a Bernie Sanders candid interview last night…no wonder his initials are “BS.” I’m not saying that he is disingenuous, I am saying that given his openly Socialist agenda (something I actually appreciate–that he’s open about it), how many “Bills” stuck in Congress will it take before his voters decide that it was all for naught.

    “There is a big club…and you ain’t in it.” -George Carlin

    With the secret robbery that took place under Bush, and the open robbery that took place under Obama, it is any wonder that anyone believes anything that comes out of Washington DC.

    If it isn’t apparent to you yet, the only people who are going to fix our situation is us.

    If I end up going to the polls (which is highly unlikely, given that I don’t get that wasted time back), it will be for Jesse Ventura, or, reluctantly, Donald Trump… At least with Donald Trump, you can imagine that he has done enough back room dealing to incite marginal compliance from Congress…

    We are not in Kansas (a Constitutional Republic) anymore, Dorothy…

  17. One of Terry’s cousins is so intent in his belief that Hillary is a “Shoe In” that when I sent him the link that CNN covered up the CNN Poll that showed Bernie won 82% of poll, he wrote back:

    Ha Ha ! You’ve got to be kidding.
    ‘Ol Bernie did OK and got his point across but Hillary clearly dominated the event.
    Did you even see the debate?
    This article you have is beyond ridiculous Pete.
    Stop passing this stuff around – you’ll lose all credibility.

    Ha Ha Bernie winning the debate – that’s funny.
    I believe he is cackling in the same way that Hillary cackles

    He looks like he’s gonna keel over any minute, and your for socialism? Sad

    True enough…your vote doesn’t count people…it’s all rigged, and their gonna put their NWO man/woman in there. We’re doomed, no matter who it is.
