Association of fibromyalgia symptoms with beta radiation levels.

Online ratings of fibroyalgia symptom severity were gathered by the Fibromyalgia Wellness Project (link), for the period October 1, 2009 to July 31, 2010. The symptoms rated included pain, stiffness, fatigue, mental focus impairment, memory impairment, anxiety, depression, gastrointestinal problems, and sleeping problems. Each symptom was rated on a scale of 0 to 10, with 10 being most severe.

Gross beta radiation levels, as measured by air filters (link), were obtained from the EPA Radnet site, for the time period and nearest location of each rater and her rating. The radiation levels were computed by attributing the levels for each collection period to the day included in this period, and averaged over the prior 5 days, including the day of the rating. Kendall’s tau-b was employed to yield correlations between symptom ratings and beta radiation levels.

A power analysis revealed that 67 ratings were needed to supply enough statistical power for the analysis. 17 female subjects were selected according to this criterion. In all, 1,961 ratings were analyzed.

A multisample permutation method was employed to perform an effect strength meta-analysis, where each subject was considered to be an independent experiment. The effect strength criterion was the value of tau multiplied by the square root of the sample size for each subject, and summed together. This method generated 25,000 Monte Carlo iterations, and a P-value was estimated for each symptom.

Symptom severity positively associated with beta radiation and statistically significant: Mental focus impairment, memory impairment, anxiety, depression, gastrointestinal problems, sleeping problems

Symptom severity positively associated with beta radiation and not statistically significant: Pain, fatigue

Symptom severity negatively associated with beta radiation and not statistically significant: Stiffness

This result corresponds to recent research on environmental triggers for fibromyalgia, and other diseases like chronic fatigue syndrome and multiple chemical sensitivity (link).

Radiation in American air and rain continues to rise.

It’s getting worse all the time, folks.

First, a new record of all-beta radiation was measured on Nov. 25 at Fukushima:

The 26th, TEPCO announced from observation wells located on the sea side of the 1-4 Unit Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, radioactive materials that emit beta radiation, such as strontium-90 has been 910 000 becquerels detected per liter. Was taken in the 25th, I went up from 750,000 becquerels of collecting the 21st. In the well of the primary sea side, in excess of the 900,000 becquerels, which is detected in early July in another well, it was a record high.

Very high readings were also measured in a trench on the sea side of Unit 2.

In The US, very high readings from rain were measured in Arkansas on Nov. 22. This is near the record high for this observer. This looks to be at least 18 times background. (Radiation in rain typically never exceeds 2-3 times background in high radon areas.)

Michael Collins from EnviroReporter.com measured 31.5x background in rain at Death Valley, California on Nov. 23:

Furnace Creek Death Valley RADIATION RAINS – 31.5 x background 11-23-13

——–
Milwaukee, Wisconsin had radiation in rain at 30x background on Nov. 17:

Radiation in Rain Milwaukee 11 17 13, 310cpm or 30 TIMES normal!!

This report from Sierraville, California, is hard to make out as to the units used, but it appears to be 120x background… and it is from AIR, not rain:

Fukushima Air Radiation Spike?

And iodine-131 in Chiba prefecture, Japan has started to rise again, after it peaked in late August and September. The last reading is actually from Nov. 6:

The Castle Bravo nuclear explosion of 1954. Part 1: The Adelaide, Australia earthquake.

In the early morning of March 1, 1954, residents of Adelaide, Australia were awakened to a violent shaking in their beds. When they went outside, they saw a brilliant glow in the east. The United States had just set off the Castle Bravo nuclear bomb on Bikini Island, 3,600 miles away.

On March 1, 1954, the detonation of an estimated 15 megaton thermonuclear weapon, known as “Bravo” took place – as part of the “Castle” test series. According to the U.S. Radiochemistry Society, “the Bravo test created the worst radiological disaster in US history [Emphasis added]….the yield of Bravo dramatically exceeded predictions, being about 2.5 times higher than the best guess and almost double the estimated maximum possible yield (6 Mt predicted, estimated yield range 4-8 Mt).” The bomb was over 1000 times more powerful than those exploded over Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. The Bravo crater in the atoll reef had a diameter of 6,510 ft, with a depth of 250 ft. The cloud top rose and peaked at 130,000 feet (almost 40 km) after only six minutes. Eight minutes after the test the cloud had reached its full dimensions with a diameter of 100 km, a stem 7 km thick, and a cloud bottom rising above 55,000 feet (16.5 km), and after 10 minutes had a diameter of more than 60 miles.


Intense radioactive fallout from the cloud was carried eastward and severely contaminated a Japanese commercial fishing boat and the atolls of Rongelap, Alinginea, Rongerik, and Utirik, some 200 miles away. About five hours after detonation, fallout began to deposit on the Rongelap Atoll. The fallout was so heavy that the Rongelap people, who had never seen snow, thought it was snowing. Children played in the radioactive powder, and no warning was issued by the JTF. “We saw a flash of lightening in the west like a second sun rising, “Anjain said in 1980. “We heard a loud explosion and within minutes the ground began to shake. A few hours later radioactive fallout began to drop on the people, into drinking water, and on the food. The children played in the colorful ash. They did not know what it was and many erupted on their arms and faces.

The radioactive fallout from Bravo covered the planet, including the Southern Hemisphere. It was a fission-fusion-fission bomb, designed to release high levels of radioactivity. Its yield was 15 megatons, but it released almost seven times as much radiation than the Russian Tsar Bomba, which had a yield of 50 megatons.

The detonation took place at 06:45 on March 1, 1954 local time (18:45 on February 28 GMT). This would be a 3:45 AM local time in Adelaide. Officially, the quake occurred a 3:40 AM in Adelaide. But police recorded a tremor at 3:45. At any rate, witnesses observed a flash and glow in the east, before or simultaneously with a thunderous roar and the quake. This earthquake did not result in the loss of life, but was among the worst that South Australia had ever experienced up to then.

The 1954 earthquake was without doubt one of the worst in South Australian history. Whether it was as severe as those of 1897 and 1902 none can say conclusively. Certainly no single locality in 1954 suffered the terror of Kingston (1897) over such a long period of time. On the other hand few south easterners in 1897 lost as much as did the Tillers, the Wakefields, and the other stricken Darlington folk in 1954.

Reports of a brilliant flash in the sky a few moments before the shock, came from a number of sources. These too were referred to the weather bureau which handled them politely but firmly. The only explanation it could give was that perhaps a meteorite had flashed across the sky. No reports of anything like this had come from usually reliable sources. It was not usual, the bureau explained, for earthquakes to be accompanied by flashes. (link)

The Adelaide Advertiser is available online for 1954 and contains much information about this event. Early on, nobody knew that a nuclear bomb had been detonated.

The loud noise heard at Rongelap Island was also heard 3,600 miles away at Adelaide.

(March 2) Noise “Like Train At High Speed”

Heralded in many centres by a roar like a train travelling at high speed, yesterday’s earthquake caused minor damage over a large area of the State, extending from the Upper North to the Lower South East, and from Lower Eyre Peninsula to Upper Murray districts. Lasting from 10 to 20 seconds in most places, the earthquake shook houses and rattled windows, doors and crockery.

Many homes were cracked, tanks sprang leaks, clocks stopped and pictures were left askew on walls.

Like Thunder

The tremor was brief, he said, but with a roar like thunder it awoke all the townspeople.

Murray Bridge: a milk vendor reported a brilliant flash and many lights like falling stars (could have been a transformer fuse); the road seemed to billow and he could see plainly houses on either side of street moving; there was a roar like thunder.

Burra: reports of a yellow light turning to bright orange in south eastern sky.

It was not known at this time, but it was revealed a few days later that the US had set off a thermonuclear detonation at Bikini Island.

(March 2) Great Rock Layers ‘Slipped’ Says Noted Geologist

South Australia had experienced a minor earthquake — probably the worst ever recorded in the state, Sir Douglas Mawson, former Professor of Geology and Mineralogy at the University of Adelaide, said yesterday. It had been caused by the slipping of one great rock layer on to another along the “fault line” which extended southward from the Flinders Ranges, he added.

Sir Douglas Mawson said he did not think there was anything in reports that a brilliant flash had occurred at the same time as the earthquake.

Not Usual

A flash would indicate a meteorite, he said, and a lot more would have been heard about it if one had fallen. It was not usual for earthquakes to be accompanied by a flash of light.

(March 5) To The Editor

Sir— Sir Douglas Mawson is reported to have said:— ‘He did not think there was anything in reports that a brilliant flash had occurred at the same time as the earthquake.’

There are many happening today which are puzzling scientists and the public. There have been many theories and many of these have been ridiculed. I think in most instances man does not want to admit that there is a Power greater than himself which rules the universe.
(Mrs.) CONSTANCE TALBOTT. Fashoda street, Hyde Park.

(March 6) To The Editor
Sir— The cold physical explanation of the recent earthquake given by geologists will do little to quell the fears and anxieties of people who were shocked by it.

An earthquake is an act of God and has special spiritual significance in these days, for Christ clearly tells us in Matthew 24.7 that it is to be regarded as a warning of impending doom and judgment of the world.
A. H. CHENEY. Pembroke place, Colonel Light Gardens.

The 3/11 earthquake was also, obviously, an omen of impending doom.

A strange whirlwind passed through some areas several hours after the earthquake.

(March 2) Kersbrook, March 1.

A whirlwind played havoc at Kersbrook about 1 PM today.

In five minutes on the property of Messrs. F. Walsh and E. McKay, the whirlwind uprooted bushes, lifted a calf several feet off the ground, scattered bales of hay for yards and tossed a clothes hoist into a nearby creek.
Clothes on the line were blown 100 feet into the air and scattered over neighboring properties several hundred yards away.

Mr. Walsh and an employee were working at a sawbench in a shed when they heard the whirlwind approaching. They left the shed and saw the roof plucked off and then drop back in place again.

(March 8) To The Editor

Sir — The idea that the earthquake was caused by blasting in quarries is, in my view, ridiculous. It has been announced that the first of a series of tests with the atomic and hydrogen bombs has been carried out in the Pacific, which practically corresponds with the earthquake.

It is high time that scientists who are blasting and shaking our earth to pieces woke up to themselves before it is too late.
C. R. GOODWIN. Eighth avenue, St. Peters.

(March 31) While I am in no position to argue with scientists over the relative time of our earthquake and the release of the bomb, I do know that we here saw that bright glow in the northeastern sky when we ventured out after our disturbance had subsided.

I saw it myself, and know it to be no figment of the imagination.

If the flash of the explosion itself could be seen 800 miles away, then I think the reflection could be seen here.
N. M. AUSTIN. Myrtle Ban

(April 3) Glow In Sky

From ‘Interested,” Macclesfield: The suggestion that a flash from high tension wires caused the radiant glow in the eastern sky on March 1 is not the explanation. The glow, resembling a crimson curtain hung in front of a full moon, was visible before the sound of the quake began. After the quake had passed a slight glow still remained.

Strange changes in weather were noted at the time. Recently we have seen the greatest typhoon ever recorded hit the Philippines.

(April 3) H-Bomb And Weather

To the Editor
Sir- I thank Dame Enid Lyons for her article on the H-bomb (14/3/54). I prefer to take her views on the serious consequences of the explosions on Bikini than those of the scientists, for clever as they are, they mostly have a one track mind, and cannot see the effects it will have on other walks of life.

Ever since the first explosion on Bikini I have watched the gradual alteration in weather conditions, and I am convinced that if the tests are continued the primary producer will not be able to grow enough food to feed the people of Australia let alone for export…
“EX-PRODUCER,” Blyth

(March 25) Professor Marcus Oliphant said in Melbourne today that it would be foolish for the world to panic about the hydrogen bomb and its after-effects…

There would be no danger to Australia from tests of these ‘monsters’ in the Pacific unless the Americans made ‘scientifically impossible’ mistakes in the handling of them. In view of the apparent mistake made during the recent test, the Americans were certain to be 100 p.c. careful in the future.

Man can control anything if he wants to,’ Prof. Oliphant said. (emphasis mine)

(March 26) To The Editor

Sir.— In connection with Professor Marcus Oliphant’s consoling statement about the needlessness of worrying about the hydrogen bomb explosion, we would be pleased to know either from him or a fellow scientist, what was the actual time of the March 1 explosion and, if it should be approximately the same time as our earthquake, what explanation would he like to offer about this remarkable coincidence.
“COMMON MAN.” Hindmarsh.

(March 29) HYDROGEN BOMB
Scientists Criticised

To the Editor
Sir- As an example of scientific self-conceit, Professor Oliphant’s statement in the Advertiser (25/3/54) would be hard to beat. He says: ‘We need not panic about the hydrogen bomb to be exploded next month, because it will be scientifically impossible for the experts to make a mistake, because of the care they will take.’

In that case we are entitled to ask why scientific mistakes did occur in the March explosion. Was it because sufficient care was not taken, or because it was impossible for even the great scientist to know the full result of his childlike meddling with the Universe.

As for being able to control everything I suggest that they make a start by trying to control their desire to control everything.
M. A. BLAKE. 4th avenue, Klemzig.


(March 20) Quake Link With H-Bomb ‘Possible’
It was possible, but extremely unlikely, that Adelaide’s earthquake on March 1 was ‘triggered-off’ by the hydrogen bomb explosion at Bikini on the same day, the Professor of Physics at the University of Adelaide (Professor L G. H. Huxley) said yesterday…

However, if it could be established that the bomb were exploded shortly before 6 a.m. (Bikini time), the possi bility that the explosion triggered-off the ‘quake should be examined.

The shock of an H-bomb explosion at this time would have reached Adelaide at approximately the moment the earthquake began. Professor Huxley’s calculation allowed one hour for the shock to travel 3,600 miles from Bikini to Adelaide.

Certainly, the shock wave from Bravo could not have arrived as soon as the flash and earthquake occurred. The cause must have been electromagnetic energy, which travels almost at the speed of light.

An electromagnetic pulse is a burst of electromagnetic radiation. Nuclear explosions create a characteristic pulse of electromagnetic radiation called a Nuclear EMP or NEMP…

The resulting rapidly changing electric fields and magnetic fields may couple with electrical/electronic systems to produce damaging current and voltage surges. The specific characteristics any particular nuclear EMP event vary according to a number of factors. The greatest of these factors is the altitude of the detonation. (link)

Evidence Mounts for Electromagnetic Earthquake Precursors

Scientists at the AGU meeting Thursday argued whether a particularly dramatic electromagnetic alarm preceded the 7.1-magnitude Loma Prieta earthquake of October 1989, which devastated parts of the San Francisco Bay Area. Antony Fraser-Smith, now an emeritus professor of electrical engineering at Stanford University, detected the signal.

According to Fraser-Smith, the 1989 signal began from an unknown source up to two weeks before the Loma Prieta quake. The signal peaked sharply a few hours before the quake struck…

David Culp, now a senior at Purdue, presented evidence he gathered as an undergraduate intern in the Stanford Department of Geophysics in the summer of 2007 that Fraser-Smith’s 1989 detection. He emphasized the dramatic spike in electromagnetic intensity hours before the quake. Efforts to explain the signal via nonquake mechanisms are “entirely implausible,” Culp said. (link)

Sparks that signal the shock
David Hambling on the current thinking on electricity and earthquakes

A surge of low-frequency electromagnetic radiation, known as a precursor signal, is sometimes detected before an earthquake. These can show up in unexpected ways. When the radiographer Mike Grayson was carrying out a CAT scan in Newcastle, New South Wales, he noticed unusual streaks appearing on the image.

Seventeen minutes later, the city was struck by a major earthquake. The occupants of the hospital were unharmed, though parts of it, including the scanning room, were demolished. Grayson said afterwards: “If I ever see that image again I’d be the first out of the building.”…

The Soviets set out to map the conductivity of the earth’s crust in an area of seismic activity in Tajikistan. Their experiments, carried out in the 1970s, involved firing massive charges of electricity into the earth. There were tremors but nobody paid much attention. In 1993, Nikolai Tarasov of the institute of earth physics in Moscow analysed data from the trials and found something remarkable.

The electromagnetic pulses from the experiment were followed by tremors, each one releasing up to a million times as much energy as the pulse that preceded it. Tarasov went on to look at the results of similar experiments carried out at Tien Shan in the 1980s, and found that two-thirds were also followed by tremors. Tarasov is now part of a team being funded by the EU to investigate how electricity can cause earthquakes…
There is no guarantee that instead of a small tremor, an earthquake machine would not set off the apocalyptic Big One along the San Andreas fault. There are also implications for nuclear testing. Geologists used to claim that nuclear tests could not be linked to earthquakes because the energy levels were comparatively low.
However, a nuclear explosion generates an intense electromagnetic pulse – possibly powerful enough to trigger an earthquake. This might encourage politicians to shelve plans to resume nuclear testing. We have the technology to trigger earthquakes, even if we do not fully understand the process. Whether this knowledge can be used constructively remains to be seen.

Earths Many Voices a Unified Theory for Pre-Earthquake Signals

Earths Many Voices a Unified Theory for Pre-Earthquake Signals


The electromagnetic pulse and ionization of the atmosphere resulting from the high-yield nuclear bomb Bravo was clearly associated with Adelaide earthquake. HAARP is thought to create these electromagnetic signatures. We already know that a nuclear bomb can cause earthquakes, because this has happened before. Thus it is possible that the deadly Japanese earthquake and tsunami of 3/11/2011, and the resulting Fukushima nuclear catastrophe, were a result of a premeditated crime, committed by parties unknown.

The other side of the coin, the obverse, is that Fukushima radiation may itself be affecting the ionosphere and atmosphere, and affecting the physical integrity of the Earth itself. This will be covered in later installments, along with the amount of radiation emitted by Bravo, why the US detonated it, and what post-Bravo phenomena tell us about how much radiation is covering the Earth now.

Some things learned from the radiochemistry symposium.

The 5th Asia-Pacific Symposium on Radiochemistry was held Sept. 22-27 in Kanazawa, Japan. The pdf consists of poster sessions. These are presentations at a conference, with some printed graphics on a bulletin board. I gave one of these once. You stand there and conference participants ask you questions. They are not full peer-reviewed articles, but just condensed highlights. Most of these are in arcane areas of radiochemistry, but there is quite a bit about Fukushima too.

The page numbers are the pages of the actual pdf, not the listed page numbers.

CESIUM-134 SPIKE IN SEAWATER IN NOVEMBER-DECEMBER 2011

Page 57: “At 4810 m of S1, the highest 134 Cs flux was observed in early May 2011. It was notable that the maximum 134 Cs activity and relatively higher flux was observed in late November and early December 2011.”

This is 4810 meters deep in the ocean. Cesium-134 was almost 4 times higher in December 2011 than the previous maximum in May 2011. It is not from the seawater plume, note how the cesium drops off in January. It is from rainout from an atmospheric plume, starting in late October 2011. See “Secondary maximum of cesium emissions, Nov 2011 – Apr 2012″. This was 1,000 km southeast of Fukushima. The plume apparently moved to the south of Japan before turning east. Other measuring points to the north did not have this spike. This is the plume that went over the US in November, and then Europe, where the IAEA declared that the spike in iodine-131 there was from a Hungarian lab. This plume was at least in the same ballpark as March 2011. It came from Unit 2. This video is from October 22, 2011 (starting around 1:00):

2011.10.22 17:00-18:00 / ふくいちライブカメラ (Live Fukushima Nuclear Plant Cam)

——
Chris Busby had this to say about the xenon measurements in Unit 2:

“The activity ratio of 0.85 reported by TEPCO can only result from an enriched Uranium fission having occurred about 50 hours before the samples were measured or an explosive criticality which occurred 60 hours before the measurements.”

TRITIUM

Page 256: “The tritium concentration of the precipitation in Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan, showed the highest annually averaged value of 74.1 Bq/L 1 in 1963, which corresponded to the year of the maximum fallout of tritium in the northern hemisphere. After the maximum, it decreased year by year for the past four or five decades, and returned to levels lower than 1 Bq/L in 2007…

It began to increase following the snow of 4:10-9:00 on 16 March, and through to a maximum peak of 15.0 Bq/L after the snow of 9:00-19:00 on 16 March…

A dramatic increase in tritium concentrations of 131.6 Bq/L and 99.9 Bq/L was observed in the rainfalls of 9:30-13:40 on 30 May and those from 21:30 on 13 June to 9:00 on 14 June in the variation patterns of tritium concentration in the precipitation of Kanazawa city, although no marked change was observed in the period from April up to the end of May. This may have been caused by the wind violently blowing down from the upper atmosphere during a storm. A large amount of tritium which had been released by hydrogen explosions from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactors is considered to exist in the bulk air in the upper atmosphere.

This tritium came from the jet stream, it did not blow over from Fukushima to the west coast of Japan at this time. It had already circled the globe. This is evidence that tritium levels in the upper atmosphere exceed those caused by the atmospheric bomb tests of the 1950′s and 1960′s.

IODINE-129

This radioactive iodine isotope has a half-life of 15.7 million years. Page 53: “The mean isotopic ratio between Iodine-129 and Iodine-131 at the accident was estimated that 129 I/ 131 I = 26 ± 6 as of March 11 2011.”

This is in agreement with “31 times as much Iodine-129 than I-131 from Fukushima”.

CARBON-14

This radioactive carbon isotope has a half-life of 5,700 years. It exists either in the form of radioactive carbon dioxide (CO2), or organically bound carbon, when it is incorporated into plant tissues and sugars. It’s a radioactive greenhouse gas. The great chemist, Linus Pauling, thought that it was a bigger threat than strontium or cesium.

Page 293: Carbon-14 and tritium were measured in Japanese sewage sludge. C-14 had an activity of 2,000 Bq/kg. This is about 3% that of tritium. But its half-life is over 400 times as long as tritium.

Page 323: “We also studied whether there were influences on 12 C/ 14 C ratios in the plants due to the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (FDNPP) occurred in March, 2011. Although there are many papers reporting the release of several nuclides, there are almost no data for 14 C…

From the above-mentioned results, 14 C in the old leaves was increased because of the influence of 14 C released by the FDNPP accident. 14 C/ 12 C ratios did not change so much, even the samples were washed. Therefore, we assume that most of 14 C were taken as gaseous forms and associated with plant tissues in the leaves.”

So C-14 is mostly in gas form. Tritium and carbon-14 will go from the ocean into the air directly. Tritium, as evaporated radioactive water – and carbon-14, which escapes the ocean like fizz from a can of Coke.

PLUTONIUM

Page 239: “In this work, we report the determination of 241 Pu in environmental samples, such as litter, soil and marine sediments collected in Fukushima Prefecture after the FDNPP accident in 2011. Fig. 1 shows the results of 241 Pu activity in litter and surface soils collected in 20-30 km zone of the FDNPP, and in Cities of Mito, Kamagaya and Chiba. High activities of 241 Pu ranging from 4.5 to 34.8 mBq/g were detected in the J-Village surface soil (0-2 cm) and two litter samples. This finding of high 241 Pu activities in environmental samples after the FDNPP accidnet provided evidence of the release of Pu isotopes from the accident.”

Page 322: “Figure 1 shows correlation between 238 Pu and 137 Cs for six aliquots. The radioactivity of 238 Pu in one aliquot is clearly higher than the others, and the ratio of 238 Pu/ 239,240 Pu of the former is also higher. This result suggests the existence of hot particle of Pu in that aliquot.”

So we have high levels of plutonium-241, and hot particles of plutonium-238 (which is 270 times more radioactive than the more familiar Pu-239).

URANIUM

Page 321: “Based on the validity of isotopic analysis, the 235 U/ 238 U ratio in the environmental samples inside the 3 km range from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant was analyzed. A possibility of atmospheric release of nuclear fuel matrix during the accident of Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant is discussed.”

That means corium itself was released into the atmosphere.

CESIUM IN ZOOPLANKTON

Zooplankton from areas off the shore of Japan were analyzed. Page 261: “Activity concentrations of radiocesium in zooplankton ranged from 0.1 to 9.1 Bq/kg-wet weight, and from 0.1 to 12.8 Bq/kg-wet weight for 134 Cs and 137 Cs, respectively during May 2012 to January 2013 (Fig. 1). In addition, relatively high activity concentrations of radiocesium were observed near off Ibaraki prefecture during May 2012 cruise, and near off Fukushima prefecture during January 2013 cruise (Fig. 1)…

We also estimated the zooplankton-to-water activity ratio of 137 Cs to be 20-754 L/kg; most of them are higher than the one (40 L/kg) published by the IAEA[3].”

Zooplankton (tiny animals) along with phytoplankton (plants) constitute the bottom of the food chain in the sea, where bioaccumulation begins. They also provide 30-50% of the oxygen on Earth.

URANIUM IN DOG FOOD

This was interesting. Scientists in Brazil tested 37 brands of dog food for uranium. It was not stated whether these were Brazilian or American brands.

Page 398: They noted that average daily uranium intake in humans ranges from 0.07 to 1.1 micrograms. The intake a 40 kg dog would consume would be as high as 2 milligrams of uranium. This is 2,000 times as much uranium as humans consume.

UPDATE

COMPOSITION OF THE BLACK SUBSTANCE

The samples were collected mostly from the exclusion zones.

Page 255: The road dusts, called “Black Materials”, whose color is apparently black, are browned in a corner and/or dip of residential streets and roadside by wind and rain. These materials are composed with fine aerosol particles, fine carcut asphalt materials, residue of lichens, soil and so on, and contaminated with extremely high levels of radionuclides released. They seemed to be suitable for getting information on isotopic composition of trace amount of U and transuranic elements. The samples were mainly collected from areas within the 20-km exclusion zones (Minami-Souma, Namie, Futaba and Okuma Towns) in Sep.- Nov., 2012. Also were samples taken from Iitate Village heavily contaminated…

The collected black materials samples were found to be contaminated with extremely high levels of 134 Cs and 137 Cs over 1000 kBq/kg by the FDNPP accident. More than 100 samples from areas within the 20 km-exclusion zones were determined for 238 Pu, 239,240 Pu, 241 Am. 242 Cm and 243,244 Cm by
alpha ray spectrometry. Furthermore, in some samples, 236 U was successfully determined by AMS.

Cesium-134 and -137, plutonium-238, -239, -240, americium-241, curium-242, -243, -244, uranium-236, are in the black dust. Curium is especially nasty. It is a neutron radiation emitter. It works on the same principle as the neutron bomb. It makes the chemical substances in human cells radioactive.

New radioactive plumes from Japan.

There is a new spate of emissions from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. A new record of 550,000 Bq/liter of all-β radionuclides (including strontium-90) has been measured in groundwater near the E-1 tank.

There was an event on Nov. 3 and 4 that caused a spike of radiation in Fukushima city. An individual in Tokyo was exposed to rainwater on his feet on Nov. 7, causing itching and the skin damage seen in the photo.

Radiation spiked in Hokkaido starting Nov. 9, continuing until the 10th. Kyoto spiked on Nov. 11.

I don’t know if these are two separate events, or the same one. There have been a series of small to moderate earthquakes in Japan lately, so these spikes may be connected to that. Or it may be a new criticality. The map at netc.com is lighting up in the southwest US.

There are more radiation graphics from Japan here.

A mushroom with 430,000 Bq/kq of cesium was found in Minamisoma in October. This is higher than any the concentration of any mushroom I have read about from the Chernobyl exclusion zone. The highest was 280,000 or so… generally much lower than this.

I want to include the following video, the testimony of a brave lady who evacuated from Fukushima with her children, leaving her elderly parents behind.

原発事故避難者mikoさんの証言 the testimony of a Fukushima Evacuee

Nuclear fuel was in the Unit 4 reactor on 3/11.

Fukushima Unit 4 is in the news lately. Tepco had scheduled to remove fuel assemblies from the #4 spent fuel pool starting tomorrow, though this has been pushed back a couple of weeks. This is ostensibly due to Tepco making more tests, but the recent announcement that the US is moving in to Fukushima Daiichi for decommissioning probably has more to do with it.

We always hear that the Unit 4 reactor was empty of nuclear fuel at the time of the earthquake and tsunami. All the fuel was in SFP#4, which went dry and burned, according to the FOIA documents, widespread news reports, and the IAEA.

But there is evidence that there was indeed fuel in Unit 4 at time of the explosion and fire. A good summary is in the following Japanese posts (here) and (here). The cap of the reactor was off for the next refueling cycle:

The reactor was in the center of the building, while the spent fuel pool was over on the south side. Infrared images show significant heat emanating from the center.


The reactor cap was off, so this meltdown occurred in the open air. This picture from March 24, 2011 shows steam or smoke emanating from the center of the building, as well as the right side, where the pool is.

The official Japanese atomic energy website shows 4,250 sieverts/hour of radiation inside the containment vessel at reactor 4 on April 25. This could only have been possible fuel had been loaded into it.

And this video from May 23 sure looks like something is on fire in the middle of Unit 4:

Reactor 4, Cement Truck, Vapor Plume – 23 May 2011 TIMELAPSE


What does it mean? I’m not sure. What is significant is that apparently Tepco lied again. If they were unloading the rods, the assemblies in the reactor would have been spent fuel. If they were loading them (which is more likely), they would have been less radioactive fresh fuel. If the fresh rods came from the SFP, then either way there is the same amount of radiation involved… both of them burned. Though we don’t know for sure if the fresh rods were from the #4 SFP.

Could they be covering something else up? Some kind of plutonium separation activity in the basement? Who knows. But it looks like they are doing something before the Americans arrive.

And what is this goop coming out of Unit 4 on March 16? This is the north side of the building… the fuel pool is on the other side. Tepco claims there was a lube oil fire, and also solvents were stored in the building. It doesn’t look like lube oil or solvents to me.

Council of Indigenous Elders and Medicine Peoples Statement on Fukushima.

Chief Arvol Looking Horse, the Lakota 19th Generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe, and the Council of Indigenous Elders and Medicine Peoples, have issued a statement on Fukushima, and the devastation of the Earth by modern industrial society, saying mankind can no longer ignore the teaching to protect the Earth, and that the destruction created by man is now out of control.

The statement may be found at this link and on this pdf.

Council Statement

This statement reflects the wisdom of the Spiritual People of the Earth, of North and South America, working in unity to restore peace, harmony and balance for our collective future and for all living beings. This statement is written in black and white with a foreign language that is not our own and does not convey the full depth of our concerns.

The Creator created the People of the Earth into the Land at the beginning of Creation and gave us a way of life. This way of life has been passed down generation-to-generation since the beginning. We have not honored this way of life through our own actions and we must live these original instructions in order to restore universal balance and harmony. We are a part of Creation; thus, if we break the Laws of Creation, we destroy ourselves.

We, the Original Caretakers of Mother Earth, have no choice but to follow and uphold the Original Instructions, which sustains the continuity of Life. We recognize our umbilical connection to Mother Earth and understand that she is the source of life, not a resource to be exploited. We speak on behalf of all Creation today, to communicate an urgent message that man has gone too far, placing us in the state of survival. We warned that one day you would not be able to control what you have created. That day is here. Not heeding warnings from both Nature and the People of the Earth keeps us on the path of self destruction. This self destructive path has led to the Fukushima nuclear crisis, Gulf oil spill, tar sands devastation, pipeline failures, impacts of carbon dioxide emissions and the destruction of ground water through hydraulic fracking, just to name a few. In addition, these activities and development continue to cause the deterioration and destruction of sacred places and sacred waters that are vital for Life.

Powerful technologies are out of control and are threatening the future of all life

The Fukushima nuclear crisis alone is a threat to the future of humanity. Yet, our concern goes far beyond this single threat. Our concern is with the cumulative and compounding devastation that is being wrought by the actions of human beings around the world. It is the combination of resource extraction, genetically modified organisms, moral failures, pollution, introduction of invasive species and much much more that are threatening the future of life on Earth. The compounding of bad decisions and their corresponding actions are extremely short-sighted. They do not consider the future generations and they do not respect or honor the Creator’s Natural Law. We strongly urge for the governmental authorities to respond with an open invitation to work and
consult with us to solve the world’s problems, without war. We must stop waging war against Mother Earth, and ourselves.

We acknowledge that all of these devastating actions originated in human beings who are living without regard for the Earth as the source of life. They have strayed from the Original Instructions by casting aside the Creator’s Natural Law. It is now critical for humanity to acknowledge that we have created a path to self destruction. We must restore the Original Instructions in our lives to halt this devastation.

The sanctity of the Original Instructions has been violated. As a result, the Spiritual People of the Earth were called ceremonially to come together at the home of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe Bundle. These Spiritual Leaders and those that carry great responsibility for their people from both North and South America came together with the sacred fire for four days at the end of September 2013 to fulfill their sacred responsibilities. During this time it was revealed that the spirit of destruction gained its strength by our spiritually disconnected actions. We are all responsible in varying degrees for calling forth this spirit of destruction, thus we are all bound to begin restoring what we have damaged by helping one another recover our sacred responsibility to the Earth. We, the Original Caretakers of Mother Earth, offer our spiritual insight, wisdom and vision to the global community to help guide the actions needed to overcome the current threats to all life.

We only have to look at our own bodies to recognize the sacred purpose of water on Mother Earth. We respect and honor our spiritual relationship with the lifeblood of Mother Earth. One does not sell or contaminate their mother’s blood. These capitalistic actions must stop and we must recover our sacred relationship with the Spirit of Water.

The People of the Earth understand that the Fukushima nuclear crisis continues to threaten the future of all life. We understand the full implications of this crisis even with the suppression of information and the filtering of truth by the corporate owned media and Nation States. We strongly urge the media, corporations and Nation States to acknowledge and convey the true facts that threaten us, so that the international community may work together to resolve this crisis, based on the foundation of Truth.

We urge the international community, government of Japan and TEPCO to unify efforts to stabilize and re-mediate the nuclear threat posed at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant. To ensure that the Japanese government and TEPCO are supported with qualified personnel and information, we urge the inclusion of today’s nuclear experts from around the world to collaborate, advise and provide technical assistance to prevent further radioactive contamination or worse, a nuclear explosion that may have apocalyptic consequences.

The foundation for peace will be strengthened by restoring the Original Instructions in ourselves

Prophecies have been shared and sacred instructions were given. We, the People of the Earth, were instructed that the original wisdom must be shared again when imbalance and disharmony are upon Mother Earth. In 1994 the sacred white buffalo, the giver of the sacred pipe, returned to the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota people bringing forth the sacred message that the winds of change are here. Since that time many more messengers in the form of white animals have come, telling us to wake up my children. It is time. So listen for the sacred instruction. All Life is sacred. We come into Life as sacred beings. When we abuse the sacredness of Life we affect all Creation.

We urge all Nations and human beings around the world to work with us, the Original Caretakers of Mother Earth, to restore the Original Instructions and uphold the Creator’s Natural Law as a foundation for all decision making, from this point forward. Our collective future as human beings is in our hands, we must address the Fukushima nuclear crisis and all actions that may violate the Creator’s Natural Law. We have reached the crossroads of life and the end of our existence. We will avert this potentially catastrophic nuclear disaster by coming together with good minds and prayer as a global community of all faiths.

We are the People of the Earth united under the Creator’s Law with a sacred covenant to protect and a responsibility to extend Life for all future generations. We are expressing deep concern for our shared future and urge everyone to awaken spiritually. We must work in unity to help Mother Earth heal so that she can bring back balance and harmony for all her children.

————————-

The 1994 birth of a white buffalo in Janesville, Wisconsin is a sign that White Buffalo Calf Woman is returning to fulfill a prophesy held sacred by many Native Americans. Generations ago, she promised she would bring back spiritual balance and harmony.

The white buffalo calf holds special significance to American Indians- especially the Oceti Sakowin (The People of the Seven Council Fires, also known as the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota, or the ‘Sioux’). As it is a crucial part of the teachings and prophecy of White Buffalo Calf Woman, the white buffalo calf is considered a sacred omen of change.

According to legend, the White Buffalo Calf Woman was a holy entity that visited the Oceti Sakowin over a four-day period about 2000 years ago. White Buffalo Woman, or Ptesan­Wi, as she is called in the Lakota language, taught them sacred ceremonies, songs, and dances. She gifted the people with a sacred bundle containing the White Buffalo Calf Pipe, which still exists to this day and is kept by Chief Arvol Looking Horse of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe. (link)
