Fukushima AIDS, part 2: Chronic radiation sickness.

With the constant bombardment of the human organism with external and internal radiation in our time, many diseases are caused, including cancer. These exposures are not just from Fukushima, but Chernobyl, the nuclear bomb test era (which is still making people sick), medical diagnostics and treatments, military uses of depleted uranium, uranium mining, fracking, oil and gas spills, industrial and medical wastes, nuclear dump sites, and nuclear reactors of all types including nuclear power plants. There are many ways are health is being screwed up, our chromosomes and the increasing damage to our genetic integrity in each passing generation.

But there seems to be a general pattern involved in what is being called Fukushima AIDS. The prior post dealt with T-cells in the immune system. These arise from bone marrow, and radionuclides that accumulate in bone marrow and the skeleton are implicated in the general loss of immune system function. But there is a connection between the endocrine and immune systems that are both implicated in Fuku AIDS.

CHRONIC RADIATION SICKNESS (CRS)

The Physicians of Chernobyl website has a downloadable book “Neuropsychiatric Effects of Ionizing Radiation” by Nyagu and Loganovsky. The Soviet and Russian medical literature is much more advanced on the effects of radiation than American literature… in the USA they take your tax money to fund pseudo-scientists who say “radiation is good for you” while you get sick and die.

The radionuclides that enter the skeleton and bone marrow include strontium (89 and 90), cesium (134 and 137), radium-226, and uranium-238. These nuclides also lead to central nervous system damage, along with lead-210 (which accumulates in tissue). Iodine (131 and 133) attacks the thyroid, kidneys, and hypophysis (pituitary) and causes havoc with the endocrine system. Strontium (89 and 90) accumulates on the lens of the eye and causes strontium cataracts. Radium and plutonium collect in eye pigment cells. Eye damage is a characteristic of chronic radiation sickness (CRS).

From the book chapter: In osteotropic radioactive substances chronic incorporation the central nervous system irradiation occurs from the skeleton. At that the highest tissue doses are received by hypophysis [Sarapultsev I.A. et al., 1972]. The more frequent than in control pituitary tumors genesis is revealed in remote terms after 131 I, 211 At, 90 Sr, 144 Ce, 147 Pm, 106 Ru, 95 Nb, 241 Am, 252 Cf, 239 Pu, 238 Pu radionuclides incorporation [Streltsova V.N., Moscalev U.I., 1964]. Data regarding the hypothalamus-hypophysis-gonads system reaction on internal irradiation are limited to the few number of experimental studies devoted to the gonads functional state evaluation [Moscalev U.I., 1989].

The Yablokov Chernobyl book cites research indicating prolactin levels were elevated in Chernobyl liquidators. Increased levels of prolactin is central in the genesis of inflammation and autoimmune disease, as well as disorders such as hypogonadism and osteoporosis. Pituitary tumors (prolactinomas) secrete very large amounts of prolactin. They are associated with exposure to iodine-131, strontium-90, plutonium (238 and 239), and isotopes like ruthenium-106 and cerium-144 that we don’t hear much about, but were and are likely being released in large amounts at Fukushima. There is a negative association between prolactin and dopamine. The dopamine receptors are blocked in this case, and the reward-prediction part of the learning and pleasure-seeking response in the brain is blunted. Keep this in mind when the neuropsychiatric dimensions of chronic radiation sickness is discussed below.

PSYCHOPHYSICAL EFFECTS OF BONE-SEEKING RADIOISOTOPES

The authors go on to discuss in detail the psychophysical effects of radiation exposure to radioisotopes that deposit in bone – strontium, radium, uranium, and cesium (which is deposited in the whole body).

Strontium: Selectively deposited in skeleton (mainly in bone growth zone) especially in pregnancy and lactation; enters foetus through placenta; enters breast milk. Less than 1% is accumulated in soft tissue. Among other symptoms the asthenic-vegetative and osteoalgetic syndromes are described with central nervous system organic damage outcome.

Cesium: Relatively homogeneously distributed in organism. Accumulated in muscles, liver, kidneys, lungs, skeleton, enters foetus through placenta, enters breast milk. Data are available about caesium accumulation in brain… Both with other manifestations of caesium incorporation the asthenic-vegetative and depressive syndromes with outcome in central nervous system organic damage with vegetative polyneuritis are known.

Radium: Deposited in bone tissue, kidneys, salivary glands. Radium intoxication is characterised with bone tissue destruction, radiation osteitis rise leading to increased brittleness and bone pathological fractures. Asthenic-vegetative disorders, specific osteoalgetic syndrome (pain in hand and leg bones, sternum, ribs, sometimes — spine), central nervous system organic injury, radiation cataract are known both with other radium injuries.

Uranium: Extremely strong protoplasmic poison. Bones are the critical organ. Is also accumulated in parenchymal organs. Uranium intoxication is peculiar with polytropism where in particular the asthenic-vegetative syndrome and vegetative dysfunction, central nervous system organic damage and paralyses are characteristic.

A word about asthenic-vegetative syndrome. “Asthenic” refers to weakness, in general. “Vegetative” refers to a state where a patient shown signs of being awake, but is really unconscious. Like a person in a “vegetative state” is not brain-dead, but cannot function as a human being because he/she is really unconscious.

So the “asthenic-vegetative syndrome” refers to a state of physical and psychological weakness, in which a person is in a state somewhere between full wakefulness and sleep. This is about as succinct a description of Fukushima AIDS as is possible to make.

ASTHENIC SYNDROME AND CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME (CFS, CFIDS)

The book “Acupuncture Physical Medicine” by Mark Seem has a section on “The Psychologization of Exhaustion”. The turn-of-the-century French philosopher Pierre Janet developed a theory of psychological force, referring to the quantity of an individual’s psychic energy, and his ability to utilize it.

He chose the term “asthenic syndrome” to describe the conditions manifested by an insufficiency of psychological force, the main consistent symptom being a profound lassitude that increased after any effort and decreased after rest. Janet developed a three-part theory of these asthenic syndromes which bears a remarkable resemblance to the modern definition of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

The first type of asthenic syndrome was mild in nature. The patient was dissatisfied with himself, was unable to experience happiness or pleasure, and became easily anxious or depressed. Aware of this tendency to tire easily, such patients avoided all effort or initiative, shied away from social interactions, and hence were experienced by others as dull or selfish. They tended to restrict their interests and feelings and to be suspicious of others, thus giving enormous attention to things that others would consider of no importance.

The second type of asthenic syndrome was more social in nature. These patients felt a sense of void, finding things of the world, other people, even their own personalities empty.

The third type of asthenic syndrome referred to patients so severely weakened by their condition that they were unable to maintain steady jobs or any sustained activity.

Loganovsky subsequently authored a paper in which 26% of Chernobyl liquidators that suffered fatigue met the clinical definition of chronic fatigue syndrome.

The aim of this study was to determine whether the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) definition could be applicable to the assessment of the medical aftermath of radioecological disasters and to investigate a possible psychophysiological basis of fatigue in Chernobyl accident survivors. One hundred randomly selected clean-up workers of the Chernobyl accident who presented with complains of fatigue were examined neuropsychiatrically using MMPI profiles, Quantitative Electroencephalography (QEEG) and Somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEP). Twenty-six percent of them met the CFS diagnostic criteria. Their absorbed radiation doses were less than 0.3 Sv, an exposure level that is not expected to produce a clear deterministic radiation effect. Clinical symptomatology included persistent fatigue, odd skin sensations, bizarre feelings in bones, muscles and joints, irritability, headache, vertigo, pain in the chest area, emotional lability, irritability, lack of concentration and memory, cognitive deterioration, depression signs and sleep disorders. Liquidators with CFS had the characteristic MMPI profile with increased hypochondria, depression, clear hypochondria, schizophrenia, hysteria, psychasthenia, and bizarre sensory perception scales… Thus, “Vegetative-Vascular Dystonia” and “Osteoalgetic Syndrome” cases following exposure to ionizing radiation as a result of the Chernobyl accident can be classified as CFS cases. The psychophysiological basis of fatigue in liquidators consists of dysfunction of the cortico-limbical structures of the left, dominating, hemisphere. CFS is one of the most important consequences of radio-ecological disaster, which results from an interaction of different hazardous environmental factors.

Yablokov et al. later added, “A total of 26 out of 100 randomly selected liquidators who suffered from fatigue met the chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) diagnostic criteria. CFS may therefore be one of the most widespread consequences of the catastrophe for liquidators… Moreover, although CFS incidence decreased significantly… (after 10 years), the frequency of occurrence of metabolic syndrome X (MSX—a group of risk factors for heart disease) increased significantly…during the same period… CFS and MSX are considered to be the first stages in the development of other pathologies, and CFS can transform into MSX neurodegeneration, cognitive impairment, and neuropsychiatric disorders.”

SYMPTOMS OF CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME

These are pretty much the same as, or a subset of, the radiation-generated symptoms we see here. According to the CFIDS Association of America,

CFS is characterized by incapacitating fatigue (experienced as profound exhaustion and extremely poor stamina) and problems with concentration and short-term memory. It is also accompanied by flu-like symptoms such as pain in the joints and muscles, unrefreshing sleep, tender lymph nodes, sore throat and headache. A distinctive characteristic of the illness is post-exertional malaise, a worsening of symptoms following physical or mental exertion occurring within 12-48 hours of the exertion and requiring an extended recovery period.

The symptoms of CFS are highly variable and fluctuate in severity, complicating treatment and the ill person’s ability to cope with the illness. Most symptoms are invisible, which makes it difficult for others to understand the vast array of debilitating symptoms with which people with the illness must contend…

Additional symptoms are reported by people with CFS (PWCs) such as word-finding difficulties, inability to comprehend/retain what is read, inability to calculate numbers and impairment of speech and/or reasoning. PWCs may also have visual disturbances (blurring, sensitivity to light, eye pain, need for frequent prescription changes); psychological problems (depression, irritability, anxiety, panic attacks, personality changes, mood swings); chills and night sweats; shortness of breath; dizziness and balance problems; sensitivity to heat and/or cold; alcohol intolerance; irregular heartbeat; irritable bowel (abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, intestinal gas); low-grade fever or low body temperature; numbness, tingling and/or burning sensations in the face or extremities; dryness of the mouth and eyes (sicca syndrome); gynecological problems including PMS and endometriosis; chest pains; rashes; ringing in the ears (tinnitus); allergies and sensitivities to noise/sound, odors, chemicals and medications; weight changes without changes in diet; light-headedness; mental fogginess; fainting; muscle twitching; and seizures.

FIRST STAGE OF CHRONIC RADIATION SICKNESS (MILD)

There is much information here. The authors go on (p. 15 of the pdf):

Below we present the CRS clinical pattern statement (mainly of neuropsychiatric components) based on its classical description by N.A. Kurshakov (1963).

The first (mild) degree of CRS starts gradually. Sometimes exposed persons consider themselves completely healthy and the disease is revealed accidentally in planned clinical examination. At that the blood alterations or neurological symptoms are the most characteristic being the earliest signs of rising pathology. Neurovisceral regulation alteration is the nervous system reaction earliest form. Complaints on headaches in cranium various parts appear — most often in frontal one. They rise and increase in strain and emotional experiences. Sometimes headache became of migraine type. Dizziness, nausea, darkening in eyes in position change are observed. Patient became more and more irritable, quickly becomes tired, working capacity is noticeably decreased. Patient is troubled with sleeping disorders. Asthenic syndrome is revealed objectively with emotional instability, marked memory decrease and elevated fatiguability.

… unpleasant sensations in heart region, rushes of blood with skin rapid turning red in separate parts, face skin reddening or turning pale, heat sensation, cyanosis, extremities marmorated skin. Vasomotor disorders are accompanied by elevated sweating, tendon and periosteal reflexes amplification, eyelids and stretched arms fingers pronounced tremor. Pyloromotoric reaction and dermographism alterations are observed both with arterial blood pressure instability with tendency to decrease. Appointments on numerous and various pain sensations are prevailed in patients complaints…

Pains in bones, joints and muscles are characteristic. Osteoalgetic syndrome is especially pronounced in case of osteotropic radionuclides deposition. Pains are more intensive in warmth and in repose relieving in movements. Vibration sensitivity is usually depressed whereas superficial sensitivity types are damaged slightly…

Endocrine shifts and metabolic disorders stipulate asthenic state along with neurodynamic alterations… Irritable weakness signs characteristic for neurasthenia, psychoasthenic events etc. are the typical symptoms here. Working capacity of patients decreases.

Various regulation disorders are present in all organism systems. Pressure decrease in retina central artery was described. Sexual function disorders can be revealed: impotence in males and ovarian-menstrual cycle alteration in follicular hormones lack in females. Trophic disorders (volume, consistency, moisture content of body tissues) are characteristic here with central and peripheral agents important role in genesis. General appearance of patients testifies the gradually rising premature tissue wasting away: face colour deterioration, tissue turgor decrease, skin becomes more flabby, peeling and pigmented. Skin chaps, poor healing takes place both with hair loss intensification. In general, the nervous system damage is characterised with asthenic-vegetative syndrome.

Leukopenia appears, reduced platelet count and decreased coagulation in blood. Paresthesia, burning, numbing, tingling, pricking sensations, pins-and-needles sensations, intolerance to loud sounds and bright lights.

SECOND STAGE OF CHRONIC RADIATION SICKNESS (MODERATE)

Now the symptoms widen and get more severe. Untreatable headaches, exhaustion, lack of appetite, sleepiness or insomnia, dizziness, sensation of weight or emptiness in the head, inability to endure mental strain. Substantial memory loss, excessive irritable weakness and rapid fatiguability lead to disability. Rapid heartbeat, chills, fever, cold extremities, sleepiness, insomnia, hair loss, loss of weight or obesity occurs. Deterioration is followed by improvement, which is followed by worse deterioration, a vicious cycle. Bone pain gets worse if bone-seeking radionuclides involved.

Pituitary disorders, adrenal disorders, hypotonia (low muscle tone or strength), Addison’s syndrome, lack of libido, impotence in men, and dysmenorrhea or amenorrhea in women. Dermatoses, itching, skin peeling, callouses. Nails thinned, brittle, covered with streaks. Intensified hair loss.

Swollen eyelids, cataract, retinal angiopathy occur in the eyes. Cardiovascular hypotonia, reduced blood pressure, anemia.

THIRD STAGE OF CHRONIC RADIATION SICKNESS (SEVERE)

In the third (severe) degree of CRS the pathological symptomatic furthermore spread and deepening is observed. In this form the striking discrepancy can take place between satisfactory self-feeling and threatening objective signs. Symptomatic corresponds to the described above but is peculiar with higher expression.

Central nervous system organic damage is characteristic here. Neurological disorders are mainly of diffuse pattern. Alterations are peculiar with pathological symptoms stability. In rare cases the pathological events partial regress can be observed but in majority of cases the steadfast progressing to deterioration is observed. Sometimes the process undulating course is marked with remissions and exacerbations. Central nervous system diffuse injury is rising through the demyelinating encephalomyelitis (diffuse encephalomyelosis) or toxic encephalitis type with preemptive involvement of mesencephalon and diencephalon. Funicular myelosis signs are observed. Reflex, locomotive and sensation spheres disorders are revealed objectively… In osteotropic radionuclides incorporation the pain in bones is characteristic both independent one and risen under percussion. Most often this pain is felt in shin bones and sternum. Usually it intensifies in warmth and repose, especially at night. Rough sensation alterations are rare with the exception of severe injuries from radioactive substances incorporated in bones resulting in radiculoneuritic syndrome. The especially severe depression of vibration sensation is described in such cases. Besides that painful sensations appear in body various parts especially in arms and legs distal parts.

Vascular disorders, hypothalamic injury, subarachnoid hemorrhages, further impotency in men and menstrual cycle disorders in women, further blood alterations. “Prognosis is extremely unfavourable.”

FOURTH STAGE OF CHRONIC RADIATION SICKNESS (FINAL)

In this terminal stage the disease with accelerating rate is progressing to the lethal exit. Self-feeling in patients exacerbates, complaints severity rises. Apathy and general weakness rise. Sleep and appetite are deteriorated, dyspeptic disorders appear, head aches and pain in bones become more intensive. In some cases adynamia is so pronounced that patients in all ways long for having rest with any external irritants elimination. Neurological symptomatic described above is exacerbated. Infection diseases are joined defining disease prognosis. Expressed disorders of dystrophic type are revealed in organs and systems. Heart function and vascular tone weakening signs are found. Adrenal failure stipulated adynamia and hypotonia rise in patients.

Small vessel brittleness is increased with their walls permeability elevation leading to the tissue swelling. Vascular disorders are the main factor of haemorrhagic diathesis rise being stipulated by blood system alterations. Haemorrhages appear on body surface (small petechia and larger ecchymoses), mucosa and internal viscera tissues. Haemorrhages are accompanied by trophic bedsores rise and infection-septic focuses. Subarachnoid haemorrhages can take place and more rare — haemorrhages in brain tissue.

Blood indices are especially characteristic here. Bone marrow haemopoiesis sharp depression takes place. Lymphopoiesis is also greatly depressed however usually to the less extent. Leukocyte content can reach down to 0.01–0.1⋅10 9 ⋅L -1 . In severest cases only the single cells are found in smears. Thrombocytopenia is sharply expressed: platelet content goes down to several thousand and even less. Erythropoiesis is altered to the less extent — 1.5 – 2.0⋅10 9 RBC⋅L -1 . Reticulocytosis can still remain. ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate) is elevated substantially. Blood coagulation, RBC osmotic resistance in terminal period are lowered. Bone marrow pattern is characterised by its «devastation». Death can occur in haemopoiesis catastrophic collapse and sepsis rise.

  1. I’m probably at the second stage of CRS… or maybe between the first and second stages. I had some stage 3 stuff going on when I started the blog back last May.

    • While reading your description of first and secondhand effects of chronic exposure to radionuclides, I realized that you were describing what has been happening to me since the late summer of 2011. I have always lived a healthy lifestyle and was extraordinarily active. Suddenly I had NO energy, had to sleep all the time, my vision became blurry, my bones and muscles ached so bad I thought I would go mad. I completely lost my appetite last year for about three months and lost over 60lbs. I have been diagnosed as a diabetic,so far, but even though my numbers are perfect I still have not shaken off the extreme lethargy and pain. thank you for the information. I will be sure to read the translations of the Chernobyl papers.

  2. You are right on, Bobby1. I was one of the children who was exposed to the atomic testing in the 1950’s. As a result, I have what is diagnosed as Neurocardigenic Syncope, but, as I have learned, doctors don’t even consider radiation exposure. They look at you as if you’re nuts if you mention it. I enjoy your site immensely. It is nice to know that we are not alone and that there are others who understand.

    • Many don’t seem to consider radiological exposure even when preparing to do radiological examinations! 🙁
      Mental Note to Self: Re-review statistics for death by car crashes versus by Physicians
      Doctors bury their mistakes,
      Architects use ivy. 🙂

    • Melittin in bee venom increases prolactin, which is a positive thing for AIDS patients. Not good for people with pituitary tumors, though.

    • Fukushima AIDS is a totally different animal from HIV/AIDS. I’m thinking it’s more Th1 and Th17-driven, where HIV is lacking in these lymphocytes. Fuku AIDS is sort of anti-HIV in some ways.

  3. There is so much medical research out there, it is mind-boggling. I am trying to distill and summarize things into easy concepts.

    Radiation’s effect on the endocrine system is such that, not only does it promote inflammation, autoimmune disease, and cancer, but it also destroys the sex drive.

    The sex hormones we have are essential for our immune health, and being neurotransmitters, affect the way we think.

    Loss of these hormones leads to other serious diseases. I might even have to talk about Tantric sex!

  4. Thomas Roberts on the Psychedelic Science 2013 conference which is now going on in Oakland:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tm4y4kRLW4

    I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Roberts in the 80s, when I drove to DeKalb and spoke with him for an hour. My current interest is in using psychedelics to treat Fukushima AIDS. There are reasons to believe that microdoses of LSD-25 will counter the deadly vicious cycle of Fukushima AIDS. This is due to this substance’s agonism of the dopamine D(2) and serotonin 5-HT2A receptors.

    • More on microdoses here:

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcmwZdHA-iE

      This is apparently very popular. Microdoses of LSD should have a similar effect as hydergine (which is chemically related to it).

      It should be noted that this thesis only relates to ergoline-derived substances. Other types of psychedelics, such as mescaline, DMT, and MDMA do not necessarily have this property.

    • It is going to take some time to put a post together. The vicious cycle of Fukushima AIDS is:

      Substance P -> Prolactin -> Glutamate -> Substance P -> … etc.

      Substance P is primarily responsible for the sensation of pain. It is produced by direct excitation of nerves by excitotoxins. Radioactive substances are excitotoxins.

      Substance P is highly pro-inflammatory. It causes Prolactin to be released from the pituitary gland. Now, there is an inverse relationship between Prolactin and Dopamine. Dopamine abolishes the negative effect of too much Glutamate. When Dopamine goes away due to Prolactin, Glutamate interacts with Substance P, which causes more Substance P to be produced.

      Prolactin is also pro-inflammatory. Excessive amounts of Prolactin are associated with breast and prostate cancer. It also leads to menstrual difficulties and loss of libido.

      Cannabis, hydergine and LSD are Dopamine agonists. They take the Prolactin out of the chain. Cannabis also directly reduces Substance P in the spine. This is why cannabis is as strong as opoids in its pain-reducing properties.

    • It should also be noted that this process results in the death of brain cells. It is the identical process that occurs in autism. In fact, as far as I can tell, Fukushima AIDS IS autism.

      So the mercury and other contaminants in vaccines, being excitotoxins, are just as responsible as radiation for this condition. It is likely that mercury and radioactivity synergize. Food additives, and xenoestrogens in plastic also play a role.

    • Life in a Real Nuclear Wasteland
      Strange illnesses in one of the most contaminated towns in the world challenge what we think we know about the dangers of radioactivity.

      In 1992, FIB-4 doctors finally declassified Muslumovo residents’ health records. Galimova discovered that in 1950, plutonium plant doctors came up with a new disease, diagnosed, so far, only in the Russian Urals—chronic radiation syndrome (CRS), caused by extended exposure to low doses of radioactive isotopes. The first young plant workers diagnosed with the syndrome complained of headaches, sharp pains in bones and joints, and a constant weariness. One memoirist described the terrible ache of CRS as a pain that made him “want to crawl up the walls.” They lost weight. Their gait slowed. They suffered severe anemia, wheezed heavily, and started to show signs of heart disease. The doctors learned to predict the onset of this mysterious new illness by changes in the blood, often signaled in severe anemia.

      http://www.slate.com/articles/health_and_science/medical_examiner/2013/04/nuclear_contamination_in_former_ussr_radioactivity_in_muslomovo_on_techa.single.html

      Yuuuuup, been wanting to crawl up the walls today.

  5. Cerebral basis of posttraumatic stress disorder following the Chernobyl disaster.

    “Radiation” PTSD includes “flashforward” phenomena and anticipating stress (projection of fear and danger to the future); somatoform disorders (depression, trait and state anxiety); and neurocognitive deficit (impaired memory and attention, auditory-verbal memory and learning, proactive and retroactive interference, cerebellar and stem symptoms, intellectual changes). The intima-media component, thickness of common carotid arteries, and common and left internal carotid arteries stenosis rates are increased in the liquidators. Changes of bioelectrical brain activity as a decrease of beta- and theta-power, together with an increase of alpha-power, were found in the Chernobyl accident survivors with PTSD.

    CONCLUSIONS:
    PTSD following radiation emergency is characterized by comorbidity of psychopathology, neurocognitive deficit, and cerebrovascular pathology with increased risk of cerebral atherosclerosis and stroke. The cerebral basis of this PTSD is proposed to be an abnormal communication between the pyramidal cells of the neocortex and the hippocampus, and deep brain structures. It is recommended that a system of emergency and long-term psychological and psychiatric care be organized for the survivors in Fukushima Daichi, Japan.

  6. I have been going through a confusing mess on how GABA affects, and is affected by, the pituitary gland. This was very interesting:

    The enzymes responsible for both the formation and degradation of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) are known to exist in the thyroid gland. The thyroid is also equipped with high- and low-affinity uptake mechanisms for GABA. We therefore investigated the effects of GABA on basal and TSH-stimulated thyroid hormone secretion in the mouse according to the McKenzie technique. Iodine-deficient mice were pretreated with Na125I and thyroxine. GABA (1-100 nmol/kg iv) did not affect basal radioiodine levels. However, the neurotransmitter inhibited the TSH-induced increase in blood radioiodine levels.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2484871

    Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) increases radioactive iodine concentration in the blood. GABA reduces TSH, and thus reduces the amount of I-131 in the blood. My pituitary was pumping out TSH right after Fuku. This is what fried the GABA receptors. So I was having abnormally high iodine-131 in the blood too. Apparently this is still happening to some extent.

    • This is the same damage that junkies and alcoholics go through. Fuku affected the pituitary and thyroid like I had been shooting heroin for 30 years. No wonder I felt like I was going through withdrawal.

  7. Chernobyl syndrome: is due to the fact that the radioactive material is diffused into physical symptoms → environment, can not be a gray area whether because of the major problems → radioactivity of external and internal exposures! Due to a decrease of resistance overall, various symptoms come happening. Where the weak individual, “chronic disease worsened” to. That an error does not come out against a blood test in many cases.

    Drugs symptomatic treatment of the commercial does not hear. Relationship is to find no high-low radiation dose. 1) Head: headache, dizziness, and dazed, have a confused idea, get high, resulting in depression, it is impossible to calculate, hyperactivity-like anomaly is reflected on intelligence a little, neurosis, epilepsy in the second generation

    2) mucosa: irritation eyes, nose, mouth, throat, vocal cords, genital-related repeated. Cataract increases Nochinochi for children, lose one’s voice vocal cords sorely eyes. Sores frequently and repeatedly. Runny nose of abnormal color or nosebleed, regardless of the low high dose, leave regardless of the adult children: nose. Bleeding from the gums. Deterioration of tooth decay.

    3) High: cough, colored edge does not stop. Kara cough. Is this different from a cold. Or cold to be repeated. You would like to admissions and discharges repeatedly bronchitis, pneumonia and cold does not go away. Get asthma. Children become susceptible to pneumonia especially.

    4) gastrointestinal: loose stools or diarrhea continues for a long period of time. Food does not go in at the top of the feeling that the stomach is closed, there is no appetite, nausea, vomiting, deep-fried food is disgusting, the amount may not be eaten. Will want to have stomach. 5) fatigue: it will attack suddenly, that body languid persists, get really sleepy, I can not stand,

    Languor never felt until now. → 6) hair loss is very similar to the atomic bomb Buraburayamai: acute pain is to run on around the waist area, and around the kidney in the middle of the night: 7) kidney in some cases to get out gradually. It is a little easier when you press, but it happens from time to time. Nephritis, and cystitis. Bedwetting. I would like to repeat otitis media: 8) ear

    9) Skin: worsening of allergy symptoms, skin of hand turn, scratch stubborn, herpes. Skin becomes weak. 10) heart: both adults and children heart ache, you will get to take an electrocardiogram to go to the hospital, but does not appear abnormal. Develop chest pains as if they were stepped on in the middle of the night. Blood pressure abnormalities also occur in children and in adults. I would like of breath.

    I fall and pattern. Sudden death regardless of the young and old. Bone pain, abnormal 12) menstrual irregularities of bone, bleeding or abnormal 11) joint pain,. Problems concerning female genitalia. Swelling of abnormal increased 13) thyroid, such as breast cancer, swelling of 14) lymph nodes, armpit and neck in particular

    15) Other: Abnormal such as fever, abnormalities of neural response, hormonal abnormalities, abnormalities of one internal division beauty, 16) birth, abnormal delivery, reversal of birth and death rates (contaminated areas), but I was allowed to quote , deterioration of most diseases is out.

    • how do i find a doctor in the southern USA to believe and treat the symptoms of CRS? Are there meds for the cognitive manifestations? Do antidepressants work?

      • CRS is not accepted in the US as a valid diagnosis, only acute radiation syndrome. This work was all done in the Soviet Union. The cognitive manifestations are usually labelled as “fibromyalgia.” I take phenibut (baclofen) which helps somewhat with this. Antidepressants are a tough call, it’s up to the individual. I have dopamine deficiency from a pituitary tumor (also a radiation symptom), so I generally can’t take them.

  8. I am trying to get Part 3 done here, Fukushima AIDS and cancer… ran out of energy again, dammit. Things are getting really gnarly again. Let’s see how it goes.

  9. i have been sick for 15 month, loss of hair, real weak all the time memory loss, tingle feeling in fingers and toes, asthma, mitro valve problems, two noduals on my thyroid and i have had two stroke like symptoms with no sign of stroke, i just spent 5 days in hospital with them running alot of test. i work in a factory where we get alot of our car parts from china and japan area. whats the chances i have got this, how do they test for this.

    • My heart goes out to you Kathy! I, personally don’t think ‘they’ WILL test you for it. I suggest getting a heavy metal hair test independently.

      Also,….your stated symptoms make me a believer you DO have some isotope damage. I would eat apple pectin with every meal,….and take zeolite twice daily, as well as detox soaks. Just my 2 cents worth my friend! 🙂

  10. My family and I moved from Missouri in 2010 up to Alaska. Since this time My wife and I have experienced many debilitating symptoms that come and go. Our three children are having speradic nose bleeds and decreased energy levels
    This last few weeksI have experience horible joint pain and muscle soreness. These symptoms have shown themselves many times in the past, however this time it is unbearable. Trouble with shoulders, elbowd,arms, legs muscles in most of my body. Along with this I am experiencing depretion and trouble recalling words or phrases. I suffer diareah 25 days out of a month. I have not taken any meda and have not used medical marijuana in 3 1/2 months. I feall like I want to die. I have not been anywhere out of Alaska but we do eat limited amounts of Pacific Red Salmon. Can we be getting rads from air, water, salmon and other sources enuff to course these problems?

    • You’re the second person in a week from Alaska that I have heard complain from health problems. I have psoriatic arthritis (dormant for now) that was way elevated for almost 3 years after Fukushima, so I can see how joint and muscle pain may be involved. Not sure about the salmon, I know the Pacific is contaminated, but the local ocean around Alaska is at least 2 years behind the US west coast for the radioactivity moving in.

      • Paul Smith, nose bleeds are / can be symptom’s of radiation exposure as well as decreased energy levels, even fatigue.

The skin is prone to cellulitis; the affected extremities are often edematous, which, if severe and left untreated, can lead to ulceration and deep infection. The underlying bone may be damaged, limiting its capacity to remodel and increasing the risk of fracture.

  13. For those of you with CFS/fibromyalia-like symptoms, you may also want to factor in chronic LYME DISEASE (and its co-infections). It is thought by many to be at the root of both chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia (though most in the medical community are clueless). I know that it was for me, and that instead of being correctly diagnosed and treated immediately when my symptoms began to really hit hard in the 1980s, it took until 2005, when, just by chance, i ended up going to an MD who knew about Lyme because she has it herself.

    For about 20 yrs I worked on the cutting edge of the CFS, fibro, IC, IBS, endo, TMJD, etc, etc (“spectrum syndrome” -Yunus). It was my career and I was in charge of following all research in these areas very carefully (among other things). Never did any of the research scientists, clinicians, nor those at the NIH and CDC ever even consider stealth pathogens like Lyme or low-grade radiation sickness. No one is allowed to, apparently.

    I tested positive for Lyme et al in 2005 via the Igenex test (do not let them trick you into the US govt’s two-tier ELISA/Western Blot testing, for it misses at least 70% of positive cases). Since then, my life has been turned upside down.

    Now that I know all that I know, I am digging in even deeper and I have been researching the damage from radiation exposure, as I am very aware that here in the US we are not being told the truth. I have learned a whole from watching Leuren Moret’s videos on YouTube and reading through her website (she is a geoscientist and radiation expert). Since radiation sickness symptoms seem to be a whole lot like CFS symptoms, and if only most CFS pts were tested for Lyme using the correct test, many, many would be positive, and since Lyme symptoms are identical to CFS and fibro symptoms, wouldn’t it make sense that there is a connection between Lyme and radiation sickness?

    If nothing else, folks who are already chronically ill with these horrific chronic conditions and were already the “canaries in the coalmines” are now even worse off due to radiation exposure that is now so highly increased, which I hear to a big part of the plan in the first place, if you know what I mean.

    Lyme has been found to be the culprit behind ALS, MS, Alzheimer’s and a host of other chronic conditions that there are no known causes nor cures for, btw. Check out the 2009 award-winning documentary UNDER OUR SKIN for some insight. It makes a mess of your central nervous system, your endocrine system, all bodily organs, your skin, and so on. It has also been called HIV-negative AIDS (google Lyme and HIV-negative AIDS and you will see that this is not unheard of).

    Thank you for this very interesting site. This is all making a whole lot of sense to me. Oh, and I know of many people who contract Lyme in Alaska (it is epidemic in all 50 states at this point), so this could be part of the picture in Alaska, as well as the radiation.
