I don't know everything. The other videos I mentioned at the beginning of the thread showed a lot of the same but they were following the scientists
who work there everyday and delt more with the specifics you're interested in. Every animal that lives there eats craps and dies radiation. Their
entire lives. Everything there sets off geiger counters: the grass, live animals and their carcasses. Kittens & cats, puppies & wolves, fish, birds,
horses, trees, dirt, snakes, bugs... everything. Erie stuff!
That's what got me to finally comment on one of these threads. Before that I could see the plants surviving out there, and I've seen Chernobyl shown
before in the series "Life After People" where vegetation was reclaiming everything, but they didn't talk too much about the fauna there. I was
floored when I saw the animals suriviving like that the other night.
Apparently mammals adjust to raised levels of radiation. One excited researcher believes that cancer chemo/radiation patients can have a far less
horrific treatment processes if they're first acclimated to higher levels of 'radiation' similar to the animals at chernobyl, because when the
treatments normally come at people its a total shock to the system. They got this idea because they took rats not previously exposed to radiation and
put them out there in cages. After a while they brought them back and exposed them to massive amounts of radiation. The rats that had been out in the
field for months or whatever barely reacted to it, but control group rats not exposed at all they reacted very poorly to the same mass blast treatment
as we would expect, what all this tissy about radiation is about.
It makes sense because radiation is EVERYWHERE and here all this life is thriving on earth.
They keep catching mice and rats out there and no tumors. The big mammals seem fine.
Birds show different results tho. Not quite 2 headed birds, but they do find slight oddities and defects in some species of them. A lot of it might
have to do with birds and come and go, fly right out of there, or migrate in. Quickly go from 'no' radiation to Chernobyl radiation. Plus different
areas have different levels. But it still looks like they're not as built for it like mammals, as maybe they dont have to be they don't live on the
ground like mammals: they can fly away. But the other films show there are endangered storks that nest there that wouldn't anywhere people are, and I
don't recall them saying that the raptors whom eat field mice and toil in the soil have those problems.
Of course an ideal world wouldn't have meltdowns. Better yet we wouldn't get raped every month on electric bills. The days are coming we will get
both. We can only be held down for so long, and the sooner the public gets educated and gets some solidarity the sooner that can happen. People losing
their minds and being hysteric, and blowing their brains out isn't the way to get there. The people most directly impacted by things are the ones we
should build up strong for the front lines, not push them to the back and over the edge.
