Fukushima

Post by Shootzoo » 07-17-2011 07:50 AM

I did a search and found no discussion on this.

For over four months now it's been in full melt down with no realistic way of stopping it. For a couple of months afterward there was a web site that showed where the radiation plumes were going, The United States was getting hit the hardest. With the pacific north west bearing the brunt.

Yes they tell us that radiation from Fukushima is being detected but at "SAFE" levels. The only reason they are at safe levels is because shortly after the disaster the safe levels were raised 10,000 times. And this was done to prevent our own nuclear sites from automatically shutting down due to high levels of radiation.

So, in a nut shell...

We're Phucked.

Hot Particles From Japan to Seattle Virtually Undetectable when Inhaled or Swallowed


http://vimeo.com/25002205


Original estimates of xenon and krypton releases remain the same, but a TEPCO recalculation shows dramatic increases in the release of hot particles. This confirms the results of air filter monitoring by independent scientists. Fairewinds' Arnie Gundersen explains how hot particles may react in mammals while escaping traditional detection. Reports of a metallic taste in the mouth, such as those now being reported in Japan and on the west coast, are a telltale sign of radiation exposure.

Japan's Nuclear Gypsies



Nuclear power is the play-thing of economic tyrants & corporate moguls. It holds no long term benefit for the work-a-day man, and can not possibly live up to it's promise.

The upside is minimal, the profits for a few at the 'top' are incomprehensible, & the downside is unbelievably huge. all the while, the propaganda is unrelenting.
For if it profit, none dare call it Treason.

That's right some of the radiation from it will be here for thousands of years.

Will we?

Have you had your head in the ground? Of couse it's going to be here for thousands of years.

I didn't say we are are phucked for nothing. The longest lived particles have a have life of 250,000 years. And it's in the air we breath the water we drink and the food we eat.

Worst of all is that it accumulates, so it is only going to get worse. The less you intake the better but that will only let you live a little longer.

And for god sake stay away from Milk. They say pork is especially bad too. I assume because they lay in the mud and eat dirt.

But bacon is sooo delicious.

I lost the link to this but had saved it.

Paste.,..

Dear Milk Share Members,
Our goal to offer high quality safe food to our community has recently been challenged in the reality of the radioactivity being released into our environment. In the past weeks radioactive levels have increased in Hawaii, with high spikes and a more current leveling off of radiation levels. Milk from the large dairies in Hamakua and Hawi has shown elevated levels of radiation, from 400 to 2400 times the recognized safe levels.
Why is milk contamination significant in the world of agriculture? Because milk represents the overall condition of the entire food chain, since cows consume grass and are exposed to the same elements as crops. So, when milk tests positive for radiation, it indicates the entire food chain is contaminated since cows eat grass. When grass is contaminated everything grown in the same soil is contaminated. This has proposed a serious concern to us farmers, with us asking what can we do? After much consideration, research, and conversations with much appreciated experts in the field of biological farming and human & animal health, we have found some things which we are able to do to protect our soil, animals, and bodies.
Aside from the much recognized supplement potassium iodine as a protection against radioactive iodine, there are a number of ways we can help. We have remembered our friend, elemental boron and the position it plays on the earth. Boron is the only mineral capable of accepting and ionizing radiation that never changes the innards or the nucleus of the cell. Spoken simply, boron can take radiation and release it without upsetting its own very delicate balance.
Boron is used extensively in the nuclear industry. Sodium borate is regularly used for standby liquid control systems, in case of emergencies. It was used in Cheronbyl in 1986 mixed with sand to prevent further radiation leakage. It was also used in 1999 in Tokaimura, Japan, to absorb the massive amounts of radiation after an accident at a plant. Currently it is being dumped on fuel rods and in surrounding waters of the Fukushima plant. Boron is widely recognized as extremely safe and can be used to capture radioactivity on our soils, gardens, orchards, etc. It also can be safely ingested by humans and animals. Boron will accept radiation and ionize it within our bodies, after which our bodies will safely excrement the boron and radioactivity.
We have begun feeding our cows and goats sodium borate at milking times, as well as adding it to free choice kelp and water troughs. In the past years we have monitored boron and other minerals in the soil and have added as necessary to bring levels up to recognized healthy levels. As a safety measure we are planning to implement a boron dosage to all of our pastures, as well as neighboring pastures. For humans, boron can safely ingested at a dosage of 4-10 mg per day. Borax, 11% boron, can be used as a tea and sprayed on your gardens, or land surrounding your home, at a rate of 10# of Borax per acre, 1#, if using elemental boron. Borax can also be ingested at 1/8 tsp to 1 litre water for w

omen, ¼ tsp to 1 litre water for men. Fortunately, red wine and coffee are significant sources of boron, as well as non-citrus fruits, red grapes, plums, pears, apples, avocados, legumes and nuts! Boron is known to be non-carcinogenic, non-mutagenic and has been used internally to protect the astronauts in space as they leave the earth’s protective magnetic field.
Other things we can do to protect our bodies are to consume zeolites, use potassium iodine, receive plenty of glutathione, the best source of which is whey!, eat plenty of supergreens, such as kale, but including chlorella and spirulina, maintain healthy mineral levels, and eat lots of good healthy fats, including raw butter, and coconuts, which offer a fantastic layer of protection for our cells. Baking soda has been known to diminish the severity of change produced by uranium to the kidneys, which are the first to show radiation damages of uranium. Dosage is 1 tsp to 8 oz water for adults and ¼ tsp in 4 oz water for children.
According to Cheryl McCoy, Aboutclay.com, Calcium Bentonite Clay acts as a magnet absorbing anything with a positive charge, ie radiation and toxicity. She suggests washing all produce which may be considered radioactive in 1 part clay to 8 parts water in a non-metallic bowl, soaking for 10 minutes, then rinse and dry as usual. Bentonite clay can be added to catchment tanks, drinking water or raw milk to isolate radioactivity, which will not be released once captured by clay. Also, the body cannot digest clay, but will rather release clay through excrement. Clay can be added to milk or drinking water at a dosage of 1 oz liquid calcium bentonite to 1 gallon raw milk or drinking water. Either allow to settle and pour off or mix and consume clay and liquid. 1-2 oz liquid bentonite clay can be safely consumed per day by an adult, with significant detox abilities.
In these tenuous times it is all we can do to be honestly informed of the situation at hand and act accordingly. We are doing our best to protect our soil, animals and bodies from the elevated levels of radioactivity, and hope that you will also. Our prayers and blessings are with the farmers and families closer to the source of radioactive pollution. We send them our love and hopes for a green, safe future for all on this earth.
Blessings,

Bentonite Clay can be found at most wine making sites.

For wine it works as a clearing agent.

You can take certain precautions as the article prescribed.

I thought that was a good thought.

There ARE thing you can do. To prevent suffering.

There are more things you can do to help you family survive.

It's been a long day for me so I'm checking out.

Just do some research, it's BAD! but it don't have to be as bad as some want to be......

Later....

Good thread swimbadd... it is a crazy situation, and most people are unaware of the implications and how far it has gone.

They had 3 meltdowns (at least), and each of those has done a "China syndrome" and melted through its containment vessel into the concrete and eventally earth below. There is not really much they can do, even entombment like Chernobyl is not really feasible.

All food is at risk, except maybe that grown inside. All animal and fish products will bio-accumulate and contain higher levels than veggies. When it rains, keep your kids out of it, and yourself as well.

I agree with the group that says nuclear power should be rethought as an alternative energy source until this is worked out.

I'm curious how much land is already uninhabitable due to man-made nuke mess? We have swathes in nevada, new mexico..
