It looks like my recent toxic exposure event, which started around May 5, was the result of uranium exposure. At least the symptoms are consistent with it. On April 21 and 22, explosions rocked a Japanese chemical plant in which depleted uranium was stored. In addition, the spent fuel pools at Fukushima contain a considerable amount of uranium-238 and -235. The uranium could have come from either or both of these sources.
Uranium is both chemically toxic and radiotoxic. It is a heavy metal which affects the kidneys and also causes neurological effects. My body is highly sensitive to heavy metals, due to an autoimmune disorder resulting from fetal exposure to radionuclides released from the Castle Bravo nuclear test. Nephritis and proteinuria (which was already there to some extent, but increased drastically) results from uranium exposure in rats. The proteinuria was way beyond anything I ever experienced. Briner discovered from experiments with rats effects on brain catecholamines, and reduction in DOPA, which might explain the strange cognitive effects, and also some of the skin effects I experienced. Anorexia and weight loss are common symptoms of exposure to uranium. The metal taste in the mouth I had is a common symptom of exposure to radioactive substances.
I’m sure there was a slew of other radionuclides too. I’m still dealing with fatigue… the last two days I have been crashing by 1 PM.
