My mother had radiation treatments when she was a child around 8 years old.
At that time I was a egg inside of her as was my half sister and half brother.
At 53 my mother died of either thyroid or lung cancer, they were not sure. She was working one day, went into the hospital the next day and was
buried within two weeks.
My sister died at 61 of colon cancer.
My brother was born 3 cans short of a 6 pack, wound up in prison for bank robbery and died (in prison) at around 40. I had no contact with him so I
don't know how he died.
I was born 1 month premature with cataracts, a cleft palate and severe hearing loss. Almost all the nerve endings that pick up consonants are scarred
I also now at age 59 have breast cancer and from the x-ray I saw, it looks like it's serious.
Now, onto the next generation.
My oldest son was born with ADHD and my two youngest son's are autistic. The oldest and youngest also had cataracts that had to be removed at a young
Now onto the next generation.
My grand daughter, like her father has ADHD.
Radiation exposure not only kills, it compromises your DNA on a chromosome level. In other words, this silent killer, you can't see it, smell it or
feel it, will alter your DNA and that of any children you decide to have.
Radiation will alter your DNA until Scientists learn how to correct chromosome damage, in other words, your great great great grandchildren will also
be affected, again, unless scientists figure out how to repair the chromosome damage.
I myself would not go to Japan if one were to offer me 10m USD.
Media is underplaying Fukushima because there is little to nothing they can do and don't want to panic people.
Partygirl won't be partying in another ten/twenty years.
Michio Kaku says the clean up may take 50-100 years.
This has compromised our air, the Pacific Ocean and soil.
While Tokyo is far from Fukushima, it's not far enough................the radiation is already affecting our Northwest Coast.
This isn't fear mongering...........it's reality.
Fukushima's "accident" will affect each and everyone of you reading this. I've talked to radiologists and anyone that knows about radiation says that
anyone that moves to Japan is nuts.
Video below is from April this year and in Tokyo.
Leading Japanese newspaper The Mainichi Daily News reports:
One of the biggest issues that we face is the possibility that the spent nuclear fuel pool of the No. 4 reactor at the stricken Fukushima No. 1
Nuclear Power Plant will collapse. This is something that experts from both within and outside Japan have pointed out since the massive quake struck.
TEPCO, meanwhile, says that the situation is under control. However, not only independent experts, but also sources within the government say that
it's a grave concern.
The storage pool in the No. 4 reactor building has a total of 1,535 fuel rods, or 460 tons of nuclear fuel, in it. The 7-story building itself has
suffered great damage, with the storage pool barely intact on the building's third and fourth floors. The roof has been blown away.
A report released in February by the Independent Investigation Commission on the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Accident stated that the storage pool of
the plant's No. 4 reactor has clearly been shown to be "the weakest link" in the parallel, chain-reaction crises of the nuclear disaster. The
worse-case scenario drawn up by the government includes not only the collapse of the No. 4 reactor pool, but the disintegration of spent fuel rods
from all the plant's other reactors. If this were to happen, residents in the Tokyo metropolitan area would be forced to evacuate.
Now, as radiation fallout envelops the entire northern hemisphere, there is a distinct possibility that the crisis will move into an even more
critical and dangerous phase.
When news of the disaster first emerged we warned, contrary to mainstream experts, that it could be much worse than the Chernobyl accident of the
1980′s, that no containment would be possible for at least a few years, and radiation levels across North America would sky rocket. A year on, we
are seeing adverse impacts on ocean water throughout the Pacific, and ground levels of radioactive contaminants are well beyond safety thresholds for
potable water, food, and soil.
With the Japanese economy already on the brink of meltdown and the rest of the world drowning in debt, an escalation in the severity of the disaster
in Japan could be the last nail in the coffin for world financial markets and economic growth.
Even worse, if storage pools in the No. 4 reactor collapse and disintegrate as the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission has warned could happen, we will
see a humanitarian crisis of unprecedented scale as millions of refugees will have no choice but to flee Tokyo. They'll have no possessions, no money,
no food, no water, no shelter, and a very fragile safety net.
This is what SHTF looks like. The government lies. The corporate cover ups. Downplaying of the severity of the crisis. And then... panic.
Partygirl may have issues if she decides to have children. She may develop cancer.
When you are young, you put yourself in harms way without a care because you think you will live forever.
Fukushima could very well be a ELE.
The news media is reporting more on who is going in and out of rehab and keeping us busy with frivolous stuff because there is little they can do.
Watch, I may not be around long enough to tell you, I told you so - but I've talked to doctors and radiologists and they have told me that Fukushima
is serious, serious for the entire planet.
Again, clean up will take between 50-100 years.
People who have taken samples of the soil in Toyko itself are saying that some of the sample would be considered nuclear waste here in America.
We are never told the full truth, only half lies.
The full effects of Fukushima will not be felt right away, for many it will lay dormant for decades, but many will die of aggressive fast acting
cancers and birth defects will skyrocket.
And yes, in Toyko.
