Reactors 1, 2, and 3 melted down years ago and are either sitting at the bottom of the torus or have melted through them (as is believed by most) and
are eating their way down through the soil beneath the reactor buildings. The hydrogen explosions that occurred in reactors 1, 2, and 3 severely
compromised SPF's in those buildings and fuel assemblies in them. There have not been photos or video showing that SPF's in buildings 1, 2, and 3
are still full of water and still viable.
This tells us that the cores in reactors 1, 2, and 3 are no longer inside the pressure vessels, and are likely outside of their prospective toruses.
Fukushima Daiichi is less than fifty meters from the Pacific, and less than twenty meters above sea level. This leads to the conclusion that
radiation contamination is ongoing indefinitely. One must remember that all radiation exposure is cumulative and does bioaccumulate.
Reactor 4 was entirely empty at the time of the earthquake and tsunami on March 11th, 2011. It was undergoing repairs and inspections. All of it's
fuel was stored in it's SPF. The building was severely structurally damaged during the explosion of Reactor Building #3, compounded by the Magnitude
9 earthquake and tsunami. There is discussion that the building may collapse in another significant earthquake exposing all of the fuel in the SPF to
the atmosphere instantly. Some stabilization work has been done on Reactor #4 building, but it isn't likely to handle another significant
Reactor building 1 is so radioactive that people can not survive inside the structure for any meaningful period of time. Reactor building 2 has been
entered and video taken of the inside of the dry well. Radiation is still high in that facility. Reactor #3 is not able to be entered. It was using
a different fuel known as MOX. It's a combination of uranium pellets and plutonium oxide pellets. It is believed that this fuel was partially
ejected from the structure into the atmosphere and onto the surrounding area.
A loss of power to the site most directly effects SPF 4, and reactor buildings 5 & 6. Not much is known or mentioned regarding these last two
reactors. They did not experience hydrogen explosions in Mar 2011, nor is it believed that meltdown events occurred there. There is suspicion by
some that damage occurred to those reactors as well, but they have been largely ignored.
There were 1479 fuel assemblies in SPF#4 and 548 new ones that were ready to go into the reactor once work was completed. If this building collapses
and all of the fuel assemblies are exposed to air, the zirconium oxide tubes that the pellets are in would immediately begin to burn. Once this
happens, the pellets would be exposed and when bunched together, can produce a recriticality. That's a nuclear reaction on the surface in a
completely unprotected manner. It's essentially the worst thing that could ever happen. The melted cores of units 1, 2, & 3 are at least partially
contained either in the torus or below them in the ground.
The reality of the Fukushima disaster is that the Pacific Ocean is being continually polluted with radiation. The water TEPCO is pouring into the
reactors is not staying there. It's leaking right out. The buildings are so close to the ocean that there's every reason to suspect that it's
making its way to the ocean. All of the fish and marine animals are being exposed to this and they do not remain in the immediate area. The sea
water itself is being contaminated with primary and daughter products. You have to worry about many different elements. Uranium, Plutonium, Cesium,
and Strontium are just some of the biggest ones to watch for, but the list is actually extensive. Cesium acts like potassium in the body and is
primarily absorbed into muscle tissue. The heart is directly affected by it. Strontium acts like calcium in the body and is absorbed into bone. It
causes leukemia. Plutonium is one of the most toxic things on the planet. A particle the size of the tip of a pin is enough to kill you. Uranium
accumulates in tissues and bones, and has been shown to cause liver cancer, or kidney cancer.
If there is one thing I could say to everyone here on ATS, it is this. Stop eating seafood. I know most of you like it. I strongly urge you to stop
eating it completely though. It bioaccumulates in fish, lobster, crab, etc. All radiation exposure is cumulative. Remember that.
