- By way of comparison, the Chernobyl nuclear disaster
that occured in 1986 in the Ukraine, Russia- heretofore the worst nuclear
disaster on record- burned for 10 days and cumulatively killed an estimated
1 million people worldwide. The Fukushima, Japan nuclear disaster has 5
nuclear reactors burning, 2 in partial meltdown and 3 in full meltdown-
and they've ALL been uncontrollably burning since March 11th. Its been
over 3 months and this nuclear disaster remains completely out of control.
In fact, some industry estimates cite the possibility that these meltdowns
will be contained (optimistically) in 1-3 years, at the very earliest.
- The amount and intensity of the radioactive fallout from
this particular nuclear disaster will assuredly kill hundreds of millions
of people worldwide over time. Japan itself is, of course, the epicenter
of this radioactive contamination that has spread out from these reactors.
- However, the Korean peninsula, China and nations immediately
surrounding the Japanese archipelago will also bear the brunt of a significant
amount of radioactive fallout from this disaster. Immediately downwind
of this radioactive release, though, is the United States of America and
the entire northern hemisphere, comprising the majority of the world's
industrialized nations on Earth. Significant amounts of plutonium, strontium,
cesium, uranium and a whole plethora of other highly radioactive particles
have already fallen on the continental land mass of the USA and have already
entered the food chains and water tables of the nation.
- To give one an example of how lethal radiation is, one
pound of plutonium evenly distributed into everyone's lungs would kill
every man, woman and child on Earth. There are literally "tons"
of radioactive plutonium (among other radioactive elements) that have been
released into the air and ocean environments since March 11th. Another
critical fact to remember is that radioactive plutonium, for example, remains
lethal (killing life) for thousands years as it has a half-life of 24,000
years. Some other radioactive elements such as uranium have a half-life
of 4.47 billion years.
- In a nutshell, Fukushima represents a literal catastrophe
for the human species, plain and simple, there's no other way to put it.
As a past anti-nuclear activist (I participated in a dozen or so civil
resistance actions at nuclear facilities all across the nation years ago)
my credentials span from being a personal friend of Dr Robert Oppenheimer's
son- himself an anti-nuclear activist- to having met and talked with the
late Dr Edward Teller (father of the hydrogen bomb), to collaborating with
a former Trident II missile designer helping to warn humanity about the
dangers of nuclear war. In this journey, I learned ALOT about radiation
and its harmful effects on human health.
- Radiation kills, and thanks to the recent Fukushima disaster
in Japan, the REAL story is that a literal nuclear holocaust is unfolding
right before us in America and throughout the world. The EPA (Environmental
Protection Agency), the federal environmental safety agency arm of the
US government has shut down nearly all of its radiation detection monitors
in the USA for fear that the American people will learn the TRUTH that
a lethal dose of radioactive fallout has now descended upon the nation.
- There's really no way to protect yourself and your family
from this new threat, although a few precautions should be noted. First,
it has been known for years that miso soup has a way of "chelating"
radiation out of the human body. The only one's who survived after the
bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan (of all places!)
years ago, are those who ingested miso soup. Second, radioactivity bioaccumulates
its toxicity higher up the food chain, so its probably prudent to stay
away from milk, dairy products and meat. And thirdly, efforts to bolster
the body's immune system with vitamens, purified water and plenty of exercise
is sure to help as well. Other than that, pray that you're not the now
1 in 2 people who will contract cancer in their lifetimes...
