Want to become a near-expert on Radiation, Fukushima, biology and why you may die from something that happened in Japan?
The SHORT SHORT story:
The spread of radiation across the Pacific ocean, which is now understood/admitted to be undiluted by the Pacific ocean and the long distance it travels, is following the radioactive migrating Blue Fin Tunas on the “Kuroshio Current” (see image below).
2. STAYING “CURRENT” WITH THE SPREAD OF RADIOACTIVE DEBRIS ~ COMING SOON TO CALI!
While radiation laden Tuna has already reached the West Coast, this HUGE island of radioactive debris will wash up on the Western sea board around March of 2013 (~day 700 on animated pic below), irradiating the water, kelp, coral, sea life and shore lines. Due to the “California Current,” the radiation will hover, eddy and whirlpool on the West Coast for 9-12 years or more (days 700 to 3500 on animated pic below).
PLEASE view the animation of the path of the debris field here: http://iprc.soest.hawaii.edu/users/nikolai/2011/Pacific_Islands/Simulation_of_Debris_from_March_11_2011_Japan_tsunami.gif
FYI – The debris field does not consist of a 2×4, a shoe box, 2 cartons of milk and some ringlets from a six pack…
The lingering radiation in the ocean will enter the rain clouds via evaporation and condensation where it will be stored, traveling at up to 100 miles per hour or falling to the earth in rain water via precipitation where it will enter the soil, rivers, water tables, grass, flowers, etc. via infiltration and runoff.
The cows eat the grass so it will be in the milk and the beef. Wheat is made into bread so it’s in the grains and soon there will be intolerable amounts of radiation in every food source, air, water, etc. which will accumulate in human bodies causing mutations, leukemia and other cancers, etc. This is already a problem in California!! For example:SAN FRANCISCO RAINWATER: RADIATION 181 TIMES ABOVE US DRINKING WATER STANDARD ~ DK Matai|April 04, 2011|“Radiation from Japan rained on Berkeley, California, during recent storms at levels that exceeded drinking water standards by 181 times. A rooftop water monitoring program managed by the University of California at Berkeley’s Department of Nuclear Engineering detected substantial spikes in rain-borne iodine-131 during those torrential downpours.The levels exceeded federal drinking water thresholds, known as Maximum Contaminant Levels ~ or MCLs ~ by as much as 181 times or 18,100%. Iodine-131 is one of the most cancer-causing toxic radioactive isotopes spewed when nuclear power plants are in meltdown.It is being ingested by cows, which have begun passing it through into their milk and radioactivity has been detected.

Meanwhile, back in Japan…
“In March 2011, Japanese officials announced that “radioactive iodine-131 exceeding safety limits for infants had been detected at 18 water-purification plants in Tokyo and five other prefectures”. As of July 2011, the Japanese government has been unable to control the spread of radioactive material into the nation’s food. Radioactive material has been detected in a range of produce, including spinach, tea leaves, milk, fish and beef, up to 200 miles from the nuclear plant. Inside the 12-mile evacuation zone around the plant, all farming has been abandoned. As of February 2012, the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant is still leaking radiation and areas surrounding it could remain uninhabitable for decades due to high radiation. It could take “more than 20 years before residents could safely return to areas with current radiation readings of 200 millisieverts per year, and a decade for areas at 100 millisieverts per year”.““27,000 terabecquerels (27,000 trillion becquerels) of Cesium were released into the ocean; Tepco had estimated 15,000 terabecquerels. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-10-31/fukushima-plant-released-record-amount-of-radiation-into-ocean.html#A different study, published in the Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics journal estimated Cesium releases to the air at 35,800 terabecquerels.” via http://www.nirs.org/reactorwatch/accidents/Fukushimafactsheet.pdf
Looking to the Chernobyl disaster as a benchmark, it is agreed among experts that Fukushima was a significantly larger disaster than Chernobyl.
The release of radioactivity from Fukushima is at least as great as from Chernobyl, and a humanitarian disaster on the scale of Chernobyl needs to be averted by acknowledging the truth and taking responsibility for mitigating measures Dr. Mae-Wan Ho ~ Truth about Fukushima
Chernobyl was centered on Kiev which, unlike Japan, is about 500 miles from the closest body of water, ~1000 miles by twists and turns of the river and the final destination is the body of water of the Black Sea which is also primarily land locked. Therefore, distribution on ocean currents is minimal to non-existent. Nonetheless, due to the radiation exposure in Kiev,
“25 years have passed, but in Kiev Hospital, 90% of babies die before they become 1 year old!!!” (this is one of the EVEN MORE disturbing parts!)
I will leave you with one final and chilling note, in the form of a witty and “black humor” quote
(which now takes on an ominous and all too real aspect):
“Friends help you move, Real friends help you move bodies.”

A. ‘Background radiation doesn’t mean it is harmless ~ it probably does cause a small portion of cancers. If you are adding to the background radiation, you are adding to someone’s risk.”How many more defective children will be born and how many cancers will be induced by this increase in ‘background radiation’?B. That is not a realistic comparison. Radionuclides in fallout are incorporated into our bodies (tissue, bones). Most of the radiation from cosmic rays is external.’C. You don’t ingest or inhale the radiation source from x-rays. An x-ray lasts for a millisecond. Fallout lingers in body tissue and bones for decades.’D. ‘Potassium-40 is a naturally occurring radioisotope that has been present in foods and the environment on Earth for billions of years. Potassium 40, which at normal body levels delivers an annual internal dose to the soft tissue of 20 millirem and 5 millirem to the bone, is not as hazardous as many forms of anthropogenic (meaning: artificial; manmade) radiation for several reasons. One main reason is, unlike many types of manmade fission products, its environmental levels rarely peak to hundreds or thousands of times normal levels. Since 1945, we’ve seen a cycle of drastic rising and falling of levels of environmental anthropogenic radiation with nuclear accidents, non-accident releases, radioactivity blowing around, etc… Another reason: some forms of anthropogenic radiation in the body do much more damage than potassium-40 for the same quantity of radiation. Dose tables printed in a 1970s document (NUREG 1.109 rev. 1 Oct. ’77) by the NRC paint a spooky, yet realistic, picture for what happens to a radiation sensitive organ, the thyroid, when iodine-131 is consumed. A NRC formula indicates that 1,000 picocuries of iodine-131 gives a dose of 80 millirems to the adult thyroid and 140 millirems to the thyroid of an infant. Consider: one liter of ‘Sunrise Dairy’ (Kansas) milk in April 2011 had 1,518 pCi/L of Iodine-131. That was from Fukushima.E. ‘You don’t ingest or inhale the Americium-241 from smoke alarms. You’re talking about the small gamma component of Am-241. That’s external exposure.’
A situation that is now being dubbed “Plume-gate,” this massive cover-up of critical information about Fukushima could have saved thousands of lives, including the more than 14,000 individuals, many of whom were babies, that died in the weeks following the disaster
And yet to this very day, the federal government’s cozy relationship with the nuclear industry has allowed the injustice to continue, as no proper investigation into this dastardly crime has yet taken place.
Thursday, June 7, 2012Tokyo- (PanOrient News) The Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant Number 4 reactor presents a security problem for the entire world, Mitsuhei Murata, Japan’s former ambassador to Switzerland said.Fukushima Daiichi plants are “not under control at all… and the situation with nuclear reactors in Japan is like vehicles being driven without a license,” Mr. Murata told a news conference at the foreign correspondents’ club of Japan on June 5.Four nuclear plants in Fukushima Daiichi were damaged by last year’s great earthquake and tsunami. Recently, people have expressed concerns about Unit 4’s spent fuel pool which stores more than 1500 rods. The unit would be too fragile to withstand an M7-class earthquake.
University of Hawaii’s International Pacific Research Center, which predicts that:
“In three years, the [debris] plume will reach the U.S. West Coast, dumping debris on Californian beaches and the beaches of British Columbia, Alaska, and Baja California…”
The debris mass, which appears as an island from the air, contains cars, trucks, tractors, boats and entire houses floating in the current heading toward the U.S. and Canada, according to ABC News.

JAPANESE FISH CONTAMINATED: HIGHEST LEVEL OF RADIOACTIVE CESIUM TO DATE FOUND IN FRESHWATER FISH IN FUKUSHIMA VILLAGE
March 31, 2012IITATE, Fukushima ~ Radioactive cesium far exceeding the allowable limit and way higher than previously detected contamination levels in fish has been found in river trout here, the prefectural government said on March 28.The yamame, or landlocked masu salmon, caught in the Niida River in Iitate, Fukushima Prefecture, measured 18,700 becquerels of radioactive cesium per kilogram, a reading over 37 times more than the government-imposed provisional limit of 500 becquerels per kilogram.The radiation dose detected this time exceeds the 14,400 becquerels per kilogram detected in sand eels in waters off Iwaki, Fukushima Prefecture, in April 2011, becoming the highest radiation dose found in sea and freshwater fish since the outbreak of the nuclear disaster at the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant in March last year.The prefectural government has requested related fishery cooperatives to refrain from catching and eating yamame fish from the Niida River’s main current and tributaries.The contaminated fish was caught for sampling prior to the opening of the fishing season in April this year and has not been circulated in markets.
The difference of the measurement in Kiev and Koriyama are like these below,
- In Kiev, only cesium 137 was measured.
- In Koriyama, it was measured on concrete.
- In Koriyama, most of the schools have already been “decontaminated”.
