Learn: The Top 10 negative effect of radiation and how to protect your DNA with nutritional supplements. Body Scans effect health. Radiation causes cancer and death from DNA damage. Radiation causes internal damage, genetic birth defects, Teratogenic Effects, Poor Immunity, Radiation Sickness, Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting and Emotional Stress.

This NO-RAD-ZONE Report shows what vital nutrients will help protect against the damaging effects caused by radiation exposure. Research shows the following supplements in this report can offer significant protection from radiation. NO-RAD-ZONE promotes the daily use of DNA protecting nutrients. Please follow the links provided in this must-read report to learn more and get protection.

Let it be known: for survivors of radiation exposure, diseases such as leukemia, lung cancer, thyroid cancer, breast cancer, and cancers of other organs can appear due to exposure to radiation.

Now let us begin.
WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF RADIATION?

Death Very high levels of radiation exposure often lead to death within a few days or weeks.
Cancer It’s estimated that about 0.4 percent of all cancers in the United States may be attributable to the radiation from CT studies. A surge in the use of CT scans in the last 25 years has led to millions of patients per year being unnecessarily exposed to dangerous radiation that increases their risk of cancer, according to a paper published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
DNA damage can bring about cell mutation, cell suicide and random cell division.
Internal Damage Inflammation of the sac around the heart, respiratory failure, and vision impairment are all possible symptoms of radiation exposure. Can cause extensive internal damage to nerve cells and the cells that line the digestive tract. Extensive internal damage from radiation results in a loss of white blood cells and temporary hair loss.
Genetic and Birth Defects Please notify and consult with your physician if you are pregnant or lactating and you are undergoing a body image scan. Radiation can cause changes to the genetic makeup of cells, leading to the development of cancer. Birth Defects from radiation include: Abnormal growth, mental retardation, poorly formed eyes, a small head and childhood cancers.
Teratogenic Effects These are radiation effects on the fetus. Fetal DNA is more vulnerable and is easily damaged by radiation. Common examples of the effects of radiation on fetal DNA include, short stature, abnormal organ position as well as abnormal organ size. Other changes can be less obvious and include diseases that affect cell life, metabolism and energy storage. In either case, these changes can lead to extremely severe birth defects and the death of the baby.
Poor Immunity, disrupted white blood cell activity, poor liver function, inflamed cells, poor quality muscle mass and fluid imbalances are a few negative side effects of X-Ray’s, CT Scans, MRI’s & Pet Scans.
Radiation Sickness or Radiation Poisoning is the term used to describe the damaging effects of large doses of radiation on the body, such as after a nuclear bomb explosion or nuclear reactor explosion.
Nausea, Diarrhea, and Vomiting Smaller, but still significant, doses of radiation cause nausea, diarrhea, vomiting and fatigue as well as confusion and decreased organ function.
Psychological and behavioral effects of radiation exposure are complaints among A-bomb survivors. Neurotic symptoms, including general fatigue, amnesia, and lack of concentration as well as other symptoms commonly associated with autonomic nerve imbalance, such as palpitation or a sense of burning or chill. Fear of the effects of radiation from getting a body scan is a health concern in itself. Coping with having scans done in the past is a challenge. The only way to emotionally deal with a body scan is to be educated and PREPARE AND PROTECT OUR LOVED ONES AS WELL AS OURSELVES.

The Law of Dharma or the Purpose in Life

by Deepak Chopra

Everyone has a purpose in life . . . a unique gift or special talent to give to others. And when we blend this unique talent with service to others, we experience the ecstasy and exultation of our own spirit, which is the ultimate goal of all goals.

I will put the Law of Dharma into effect by making a commitment to take the following steps:

1. Today I will lovingly nurture the god or goddess in embryo that lies deep within my soul. I will pay attention to the spirit within me that animates both my body and my mind. I will awaken myself to this deep stillness within my heart. I will carry the consciousness of timeless, eternal Being in the midst of time-bound experience.

2. I will make a list of my unique talents. Then I will list all the things that I love to do while expressing my unique talents. When I express my unique talents and use them in the service of humanity, I lose track of time and create abundance in my life as well as in the lives of others.

3. I will ask myself daily, “How can I serve?” and “How can I help?” The answers to these questions will allow me to help and serve my fellow human beings with love.

When We Tested Nuclear Bombs


Since the time of Trinity -- the first nuclear explosion in 1945 -- nearly 2,000 nuclear tests have been performed. Most of these occurred during the 1960s and 1970s. When the technology was new, tests were frequent and often spectacular, and they led to the development of newer, more deadly weapons. Since the 1990s, there have been efforts to limit the testing of nuclear weapons, including a U.S. moratorium and a U.N. comprehensive test ban treaty. As a result, testing has slowed -- though not halted -- and there are looming questions about who will take over for those experienced engineers who are now near retirement? Gathered here are images from the first 30 years of nuclear testing. See also "Can We Unlearn the Bomb?" and "Atomic Weapons on Film." [36 photos

Fukushima: Massive Leaks and Radioactive Fallout Continuing On a Daily Basis … For Years On End

 
Global Research, April 06, 2013
 
You may have heard that Tepco – the operator of the stricken Fukushima nuclear power plants – announced a large leak of radioactive water.

You may have heard that the cooling system in the spent fuel pools at Fukushima has failed for a second time in a month.

This is newsworthy stuff … but completely misses the big picture.

Japanese experts say that Fukushima is currently releasing up to 93 billion becquerels of radioactive cesium into the ocean each day.

How much radiation is this?

A quick calculation shows that it is about ten thousand times less than the amounts released by Chernobyl during the actual fire at the Russian nuclear plant.   But the Chernobyl fire only last 10 days … and the Fukushima release has been ongoing for more than 2 years so far.
Indeed, Fukushima has already spewed much more radioactive cesium and iodine than Chernobyl. The amount of radioactive cesium released by Fukushima was some 20-30 times higher than initially admitted.
Fukushima also pumped out huge amounts of radioactive iodine 129 – which has a half-life of 15.7 million years. Fukushima has also dumped up to 900 trillion becquerels of radioactive strontium-90 – which is a powerful internal emitter which mimics calcium and collects in our bones – into the ocean.

And the amount of radioactive fuel at Fukushima dwarfs Chernobyl … and so could keep leaking for decades, centuries or millenia.

Tepco graphics of the Fukushima plants even appear to show water directly flowing from the plant to the ocean.  See this and this.

The bottom line is that the reactors have lost containment.  There are not “some leaks” at Fukushima. 
“Leaks” imply that the reactor cores are safely in their containment buildings, and there is a small hole or two which need to be plugged.   But scientists don’t even know where the cores of the reactors are.   That’s not leaking. That’s even worse than a total meltdown.

So what are the consequences for people living outside of Fukushima itself?

UN expert says Japan government, nuclear plant operator evading responsibility for disaster


TOKYO — A United Nations expert who investigated the aftermath of Japan’s 2011 nuclear power plant disaster says the government and the operator of the facility should do more to help those affected by the catastrophe.
A report by special rapporteur Anand Grover, posted on the U.N. Human Rights Council’s website, says the government’s takeover of Tokyo Electric Power Co. allowed the utility to evade full responsibility for the nuclear disaster, the worst since Chernobyl. (keep reading....

Fukushima Radiation Spreads Worldwide

 Earth Changes http://www.sott.net/article/240352-Fukushima-Radiation-Spreads-Worldwide


California, Finland, Canada, Australia Hit By Radiation

The University of California at Berkeley detected cesium levels in San Francisco area milk above over EPA limits ... and even higher than they were 6 months ago.

Finnish public television says that cesium from Fukushima has been detected in lichens, fungi and elk and reindeer meat in Finland.

The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency confirmed a radiation cloud over the East Coast of Australia.

The West Coast of Canada is getting hit by debris from Japan ... and at least some of it is likely radioactive.

The authors of the controversial study claiming 14,000 deaths in the U.S. so far from Fukushima are now upping their figure to 20,000. I spoke with nuclear health expert Chris Busby about their study, and he said that mortality figures fluctuate pretty substantially in the normal course, and so it is hard to know at this point one way or the other whether their figures are accurate.

And while there is no evidence linking them to Fukushima, Bed Bath and Beyond has recalledradioactive tissue holders after they set off police radiation monitors aboard a delivery truck This may just be an example of the incredibly lax handling of radioactive materials.

And thyroid cancers are - mysteriously - on the rise in the U.S.

But don't worry: The owner of the Fukushima plant has the plant in cold shutdown, so everything is "under control" ... Although temperatures have apparently jumped inside Fukushima's number 2 reactor, and the Japanese have no idea where the nuclear fuel has gone, so they are drilling a hole into the containment vessel to try to find it. http://www.sott.net/article/240352-Fukushima-Radiation-Spreads-Worldwide

The “Fukushima Collective Evacuation Trial Team” rejected a second time


Posted on 25 April 2013
The 24 June 2011, parents 14 primary school children in Koriyama City and antinuclear activists have filed a complaint to the District Court to demand their right to study in a healthy environment and thus to organize collective evacuation of children.
The district court rejected their request Koriyama the 16 December 2011.
The plaintiffs appealed to the end of the year 2011 High Court of Sendai.
The complaint asks the Government and the judiciary to take immediate steps to remove children from Fukushima collectively.
Details “save children from radiation”

25 April 2013 – See the reaction of one of the trial lawyers at the bottom of page


24 April 2013

The Sendai High Court has rejected the demand that the city of Koriyama, affected by the impact of the nuclear disaster 2011 evacuates his children.

The plaintiffs argued that the city of Koriyama before the legal responsibility to evacuate school children, to ensure a healthy environment.
The court recognized that the level of radiation in the city was higher than levels considered safe before the disaster. But the government does not bear the responsibility to evacuate the school as requested.
In practice this means the people from themselves if they feel worried.

Toshio Yanagihara, one of the lawyers said that the decision was unfair because “children are victims no responsibility for the nuclear accident“. This judgment is also subject to appeal.
Koriyama est une would 330.000 inhabitants about 60 Km west of the ruined reactors.
Thousands of children suffered from cancer after the Chernobyl disaster, but these cancers do not appear until several years.
It is not known whether children Fukushima are also subject to cancer, expensive le cancer ever since various causes, and radiation affects people differently.
Radioactive contamination is complex, not only taints the air, but also food, soil and water.
De nombreux habitants de Fukushima sont inquiets et ont déménagé.
La façon dont le gouvernement a géré la catastrophe de Fukushima a conduit à la méfiance du public.
Des milliers de personnes ont manifesté dans les rues, exigeant une élimination progressive de l’énergie atomique.
Le gouvernement a exprimé le souhait de relancer les réacteurs après vérification de leur sécurité.

Note:
Collective evacuation means that the state organizes and finances the evacuation of populations.
To evacuate alone as proposed by the court, must have money, a trade, do not have too much debt on site; must also find a base, a housing, employment…. In addition there are family issues. In many cases, the mother and the children are gone and the husband remains in place because of his work. Those who stay with their children are often worried about their future; especially as the authorities hide the overall results of examinations of the thyroid performed.
The level of radiation considered internationally as “harmless” – or rather not too offensive- est de 1mSv/an (en plus du rayonnement naturel)
Le gouvernement japonais a décidé que les gens pouvaient habiter dans les zones à 20mSv/an
Le niveau naturel au japon est généralement inférieur à 0,10µSv/h.
0,10Sv / hour, cela fait 0,9mSv/an pour une exposition permanente.

Hundreds protest amendment of pacifist constitution in Tokyo

Hundreds protest amendment of pacifist constitution in Tokyo
Hundreds of Japanese, young and old, gathered in downtown Tokyo in a peaceful protest Friday against calls by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to amend the country's pacifist constitution and give the government more power to abridge civil liberties.

Opposition parties, labour groups, religious organizations and individuals turned out to march from a park near the Imperial Palace through the Ginza shopping district, beating drums and chanting their opposition to such moves by Abe and the ruling Liberal Democratic Party.

Japan was marking the 66th anniversary of its constitution on Friday, a national holiday.

Supporters of amending the constitution want to change the requirement that constitutional amendments win two-thirds approval in both houses of parliament before they are put to a national referendum. They want that changed to simple majority approvals in parliament before a referendum.

Opponents say such changes could allow the government to undermine civil liberties. Reinforcing such concerns is a proposal by the Liberal Democrats that calls for making civil liberties such as freedom of speech and expression subordinate to the public interest.

"The constitution is meant to protect the people and their rights from the government. What they want to do is to reverse that," said Hiroshi Honna, a member of a group of Second World War air raid victims' families and of a group against amending Article 9 of the constitution, in which Japan renounces the use of war.

His was among dozens of groups handing out flyers and marching in the "Ginza Parade." Surveys show mixed opinions among Japanese to revising the constitution.

While many Japanese favour Abe's calls for a greater sense of patriotism and national pride, many believe their nation's rejection of war and its protection of civil liberties are essential for its prosperity.

The constitution was written by U.S. officials whose main concern was keeping Japan from rearming soon after the Second World War. Until recently, discussions of constitutional amendments mainly focused on longtime calls to change Article 9, which keeps a tight rein on Japan's military, known as the "Self-Defence Forces."

Abe took office late last year, vowing to end two decades of economic stagnation and restore Japan's greatness. He has long campaigned for boosting the role of the military, and with his popularity ratings at more than 70 per cent appears confident of winning a strong mandate for the Liberal Democrats in a July election for the upper house of parliament.

Among other things, Abe wants Japan to be able to engage in "collective defence," with its troops able to fight alongside Tokyo's allies - especially the U.S. troops who are obliged to defend Japan - if either comes under direct attack. The United States has about 50,000 troops in Japan, including its largest airbase in Asia.

Right now, if Japan's current standoff with China over a group of disputed islands flared into actual conflict, and U.S. navy ships coming to Japan's assistance took enemy fire, Japan wouldn't be able to help them.

Kazuo Shii of the Japan Communist Party said high requirements for amending the constitution were considered "common sense" in most countries.

"The constitution exists to protect your own rights," he said. "There is a good reason it is not easy to amend it."

Nanoscale Ag may decrease radiation of Cesium 134 and 137 by LENR transmutation?

Nanoscale Ag may decrease radiation of Cesium 134 and 137 by LENR transmutation?
Mar 30th, 2013 @ 11:02 pm › Toshiro Sengaku
On the week of Feb 5, the conference of “radiation detectors and their uses” was held in High Energy Accelerator Research Organization in Tsukuba city of Japan. Japanese web site is (here) and Google translated one is (here).

In the conference, there was a very interesting presentation “Experiment and verification of the radioactive cesium decrease effect of nanoscale pure silver (Ag) with supporting material” for LENR watchers. (This title is translated to English by me and may be inaccurate.)

The Japanese abstract (PDF document) was published (here) and p.69 and p.70 are for the presentation.

Experiment and verification of the radioactive cesium decrease effect of nanoscale pure silver (Ag) with supporting material



ナノスケール純銀担持体の放射性セシウム減弱効果の検証測定 from 俊郎 浅学俊郎
The author, Dr. Shin Iwasaki, a physicist and ex-professor of Tohoku University of Japan, describes the results of some experiments that the nanoscale Ag supported by bone charcoal and white granite or collagen liquid can decrease the radioactivity of the radioactive cesium in Fukushima prefecture of Japan in the laboratory.

In Fukushima, after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster of March 11, 2011, the soil and many houses were contaminated by radioactive cesium. To decontaminate, people had to wash roofs and walls by water, and remove the surface-soil containing the radioactive material. The big problem is how to treat the washing water or removed soil, because we have no way to decrease the radioactivity.

Dr. Norio Abe, a biologist and the chief of Itabashi Firefly Ecosystem Center in Tokyo, thought of the idea to use nanoscale silver Ag to decontaminate radioactive soil because he had well-known the capability of nanoscale Ag to keep the environment clean for the firefly.

Surprisingly, the radioactivity of the soil decreased after he had spread nanoscale Ag with collagen liquid.

While the reason or mechanism is unknown, he succeeded to decrease the radioactivity of contaminated water or soil in several fields in Fukushima.

In March 2012, Dr. Shin Iwasaki joined the group with Dr. Norio Abe and started to help verify the strange phenomenon. Then in Nov 2012, after much trial and error, he was able to measure the effect. In the abstract, the main result is shown in Fig. 1.

He made the sample in U9-type container by combining the 4-5 nanometer Ag with bone charcoal and washing with water including Cesium. He measured radioactivity by monitoring the gamma spectrum over a long period using Csl (T1) detector + 512ch MCA. He said that his team payed attention to uniformity of the sample, self shielding, volatilization and location of the measuring instruments.

While the natural half-life of Cs-134 is 2 years, and one of Cs-137 is 30 years, Dr. Iwasaki analysed the experiment and concluded there was a decrease in the ”half-life” of radioactivity of these Cesium isotopes to about 1 or 2 months.

The graph of Fig. 1 shows the time series of the relative values of radioactivity to the original sample without nanoscale Ag. For example, ”1.0″ is the value of the original sample and “0.6″ means the value is 60% of the original sample. 3P and LC shows the following values and the background radioactivity is reduced.

3P: sum of 3 peaks including 604keV of Cs-134, 661.6keV of Cs-137 and 795.7keV of Cs-134 and others.

LC: sum of continuous values under the 3 peaks.



This experiment started at Dec 22, 2012 and ended at Jan 16, 2013. In the first few days, the half-life of the radioactivity is equal to about 20 days, He added 0.6 cc pure water to the sample and stirred at Jan 14, 2013 and the value started to decrease again.

This result is very impressive for me because the experimental system is simple and the effect is big. Dr. Shin Iwasaki suggested the phenomenon may be one kind of LENR.

Unfortunately, this project has little budget, and he can not analyze the mix of elements of the used sample. In the abstract, he calls for other scientists to reproduce this experiment. I hope they will too. This phenomenon may help to decontaminate water and soil around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

top-secret studies, the “Human Radiation Experiments,”

EXPOSE REVISITED - This year marks the 20th anniversary of the declassification of top-secret studies, the “Human Radiation Experiments,” done over a period of 30 years, in which the US conducted radiation experiments on as many as 20,000 vulnerable US citizens.
http://www.citywatchla.com/4box-right/5005-humans-used-for-radiation-experiments-a-shameful-chapter-in-us-history

Victims included civilians, prison inmates, federal workers, hospital patients, pregnant women, infants, developmentally disabled children and military personnel — most of them powerless, poor, sick, elderly or terminally ill. Eileen Welsome’s 1999 exposé The Plutonium Files: America’s Secret Medical Experiments in the Cold War details “the unspeakable scientific trials that reduced thousands of men, women, and even children to nameless specimens.”

The program employed industry and academic scientists who used their hapless patients or wards to see the immediate and short-term effects of radioactive contamination — with everything from plutonium to radioactive arsenic. The human subjects were mostly poisoned without their knowledge or consent.

An April 17, 1947 memo by Col OG Haywood of the Army Corps of Engineers, reported by The Washington Post on Dec. 16, 1994, explained why the studies were classified: “It is desired that no document be released which refers to experiments with humans and might have adverse effect on public opinion or result in legal suits.”

In one Vanderbilt University study, 829 pregnant women were unknowingly fed radioactive iron. In another, 188 children were given radioactive iron-laced lemonade. Detailed by a 1986 report of the Subcommittee on Energy Conservation and Power, from 1963 to 1971, 67 inmates in Oregon and 64 prisoners in Washington had their testicles targeted with X-rays to see what doses made them sterile.

At the Fernald State School, mentally retarded boys were fed radioactive iron and calcium but consent forms sent to parents didn’t mention radiation. A 1994 Minneapolis StarTribune report, “48 more human radiation experiments revealed,” noted psychiatric patients and infants were injected with radioactive iodine.

In a rare public condemnation, Clinton Administration Energy Sec. Hazel O’Leary confessed to being aghast at the conduct of the scientists. She told Newsweek in 1994: “I said, ‘Who were these people and why did this happen?’ The only thing I could think of was Nazi Germany.” None of the victims were provided follow-on medical care.

Scientists knew from the beginning of the 20th century that radiation could cause genetic and cell damage, cell death, radiation sickness and even death. A Presidential Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments was established in 1993 to investigate charges of unethical or criminal action by the experimenters. Its findings were published by Oxford University Press in 1996 as The Human Radiation Experiments.

The abuse of X-radiation “therapy” was also conducted throughout the ’40s and ’50s. Everything from ringworm to tonsillitis was “treated” with X-radiation because the long-term risks were unknown or considered tolerable. Joseph Mangano’s 2012 Mad Science: The Nuclear Power Experiment reveals that children were routinely exposed to alarmingly high doses of radiation from devices like “fluoroscopes” to measure foot size in shoe stores. Nasal radium capsules inserted in nostrils, used to attack hearing loss, are now thought to be the cause of cancers, thyroid and dental problems, immune dysfunction and more, although a National Cancer Institute fact sheet claims there is no clear link between nasal radium exposure and cancer.

In large-scale experiments as late as 1985, the Energy Department deliberately produced reactor meltdowns that spewed radiation across Idaho and beyond. The Washington Post reported the meltdown July 10, 1985, quoting an Energy Department spokesman as saying, “It appears that the test was a complete success.” The Air Force conducted at least eight deliberate meltdowns in the Utah desert in 1959, dispersing 14 times the radiation released by the partial meltdown of Three Mile Island in Pennsylvania in 1979, an Associated Press reported in 1994.

The military even dumped radiation from planes and spread it across wide areas around and downwind of Oak Ridge, Tenn., Los Alamos, NM, and Dugway, Utah. This “systematic radiation warfare program,” conducted between 1944 and 1961, was kept secret for decades.

“Radiation bombs” thrown from USAF planes intentionally spread radiation “unknown distances” endangering the young and old alike. One such experiment doused Utah with 60 times more radiation than escaped the Three Mile Island accident, according to Sen. John Glenn, D-Ohio, who released a report on the program 20 years ago.

The Pentagon’s aboveground nuclear bomb tests of 1945-1962, totaling more than 200, and the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, are not officially listed as radiation experiments. Yet between 250,000 and 500,000 US military personnel were contaminated during their compulsory participation in the bomb tests and the post-war occupation of Japan.

Documents uncovered by the Advisory Committee show that the military knew there were serious radioactive fallout risks from its Nevada Test Site bomb blasts. The generals decided not to use a safer site in Florida, where fallout would have blown out to sea. “The officials determined it was probably not safe, but went ahead anyway,” Pat Fitzgerald, a scientist on the committee staff, told The New York Times March 15, 1995.

In addition, Dr. Gioacchino Failla, a Columbia University scientist who worked for the Atomic Energy Commission, was quoted in the same 1995 report as saying, “We should take some risk… we are faced with a war in which atomic weapons will undoubtedly be used, and we have to have some information about these things.”

With the National Cancer Institute’s 1997 finding that all US citizens in the country at the time of the bomb tests were contaminated with fallout, it’s clear we did face war with atomic weapons — our own.

Extremely radioactive debris found on the top of reactor3 North side

Extremely radioactive debris found on the top of reactor3 North side, Tepco “Safely moved to the South side”
Posted by Mochizuki on May 4th, 2013 ·

On 5/4/2013, Tepco released the press release to announce they found the extremely radioactive debris on the top of reactor3.
At this moment, English version of the report is not published yet.
The debris was found in the North side of the top, where used to be the operation floor.
When they loaded it onto the remote controlling truck, they measured 540 mSv/h. However it is not announced how far they measured it from the surface of debris.
At 13:45, they regulated entering around the truck, but they moved the debris to the temporary storage facility of highly radioactive debris on the south side of the reactor building.
Tepco announced they are going to move it to the solid radioactive waste storage facility on the North side of the seismic isolation building within 5 days.

Japan promises safety in building new nuclear plant

WTF? Japanese Abe promises nuclear safety in Turkey? ........$&-@#%<|*£¥!&%#!.......
 3/5/2013

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Japan's prime minister said Friday that his country has learned lessons from the Fukushima nuclear disaster and will offer the "highest level of safety" when it builds Turkey's second nuclear plant.

Turkey chose a Japanese-French consortium for the construction of a nuclear reactor on Turkey's Black Sea coast. An agreement was signed during Shinzo Abe's visit to Ankara on Friday.

Abe, speaking through an interpreter, told reporters: "We have carried our experience in nuclear security to the highest level through lessons learned from past accidents and risks."

Turkey's Energy Ministry said the country will begin negotiations with Japan's Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and France's Areva. The 5,000-megawatt capacity plant is expected to cost $22 billion and be operational in 2023.

Russia is constructing Turkey's first plant in Akkuyu, which will begin test production in 2019."HTTP://www.local15tv.com/news/world/story/Japan-promises-safety-in-building-new-nuclear-plan/t41IU8LF0ki78u-DMNodPw.cspx

Fukushima 2013: A Continuing Nuclear Disaster of Global Significance A Nuke Free Future.

http://www.nukefreefuture.com/fukushima2012/, Fukushima 2013: A Continuing Nuclear Disaster of Global Significance
Massive radiation releases continue to spread in Japan and globally via the atmosphere, ocean, precipitation, contaminated food & manufactured goods. By Kia Mistilis. Independent journalist & contributing editor to Nuke Free Future. March, 2013.

Tracking the situation at the stricken nuclear power station: Two years since the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami, the situation at the Daichi nuclear plant remains critical. Fukushima is a continuing nuclear disaster – it did not end when the world’s mainstream media abruptly stopped reporting on it just a few months after it began. Arnie Gundersen, a nuclear engineer with 40 years’ experience, has been monitoring the reactors and radiation releases since March 11, 2011. He posts regular video updates on his NGO website: Fairewinds Energy Education, which explain the unfolding disaster in layman’s terms. He is one of a small handful of independent experts who have stepped into the gap left by the nuclear industry, TEPCO and the Japanese government, to provide the public with accurate scientifically based information and analysis. You can access Arnie Gundersen’s video reports and media interviews here. Gundersen told Al Jazeera in June 2011 that “Fukushima is the biggest industrial catastrophe in the history of mankind.”

A triple meltdown occurred 1-2 days after the earthquake & tsunami hit: When the earthquake hit, the plant lost power and water used to cool the reactors stopped circulating. Back up diesel generators located in the basements failed when the tsunami flooded the buildings. Without power to cool the water which controls the temperature of the fuel rods, the fuel melted, turning into molten lava and breaching the steel containment vessels at the reactors’ floor. Gundersen’s reports confirm that a triple meltdown occurred within 24-48 hours after the plant lost power. (Keep Reading...).http://www.nukefreefuture.com/fukushima2012/
