As a Canadian who lives on the West Coast, overlooking the Pacific from my window, this article does not make me feel any better. It confirms what I have known all along and it does raise my ire that our Canuck government is following the party line and acting as if there are no problems when we know that here, where I live, the worst fallout from Fukushima outside of Japan fell and has contaminated our food supply. Now I cannot even eat fresh wild salmon without concern! The seaweed locals harvest for their natural gardens is contaminated and "natural food" is no longer clean in any way at all.
What REALLY bothers me is, mention these facts to anyone, including the educated, and they deny it. My doctor denies it. My family denies it. I am paranoid is the impression they give ~ and these are erudite educated people!

“Experts say that the total radiation leaked will eventually exceed the amounts released from the Chernobyl disaster that the Ukraine in April 1986. This amount would make Fukushima the worst nuclear disaster in history.”
Tepco, the operators of the plant, say the thermometer is conveniently broken, but they have been known to conceal the truth from the public in the past. It took a report months after the initial Fukushima disaster to state that the amount of radiation released exceeds twice what experts claimed, and that report is actually very conservative. Researchers stated:
“Significantly more radioactive caesium was released into the atmosphere as a result of the Fukushima explosion than many experts previously stated. A new study challenges the official explanations of the Fukushima explosion, stating that the amount of radioactive isotope caesium-137 released at the height of the crisis was equivalent to 42% of that from Chernobyl.”
“In fact, this statement came with a big delay. The operating company deliberately concealed this information. The explanation is simple ~ the company is afraid that any checking by competent experts would reveal its inability to save the situation. Only recently, foreign experts founded a consultative body for the clean-up of the accident’s consequences. Moreover, the company is concealing the information about the amount of pollution of the environment.”
One peer-reviewed study found that radioactive fallout from Fukushima has already killed an estimated 14,000 individuals in the United States ~ most under age one.

“Food grown in these regions is contaminated with cesium-137, and sadly most of the children living there who eat this food have become unhealthy. The Belrad Institute, after nine years of research and hundreds of autopsies, found that cesium-137 concentrates in the vital organs, particularly the heart and endocrine system. Professor Yuri Bandazhevsky discovered that children contaminated with cesium-137 that produced 50 atomic disintegrations per second (beck-rells) per kilogram of body weight caused irreversible heart damage in a child.”
“It is a public health issue and not a personal health issue. What that means is that we will never know who is the individual who got cancer from Fukushima. But we can be sure that the radiation did reach here and that there will be an increase in cancers, especially on the West Coast where the Rocky Mountains stopped most of the radiation and deposited it on the ground.”
Sea vegetables: they’re nutritious, taste great, and protect against radiation with high iodine content. Kelp is a great choice here. You just have to watch out for contamination like mercury and other toxic ingredients ~ make sure you buy high quality organic when possible.Chrlorella: Chlorella is full of chlorophyll, which may ward off radiation and is an overall immune booster.Spirulina: Spirulina has been been shown to not only enhance the immune system and reduce cholesterol, but also protect the body from radiation.Apple pectin: Beginning to gain a powerful reputation as an anti-radiation substance.Turmeric: this substance is really becoming the next vitamin D ~ it’s so powerful in boosting your immunity and recent studies show it can protect your skin from radiation. More importantly, it possesses anti-radiation and toxicity effects that can actually interfere with chemotherapy, which just shows how powerful it is. You’ll want to be taking this in a liquid form as a lot of the dry capsules don’t work very well, or perhaps in a food source. The food source is also of concern as it needs to be 100% organic and unprocessed.
