☢ [Video] The Animals of Chernobyl - The Lasting Effects of Fallout ☢

This is a short video showing the lasting effects of radiation on biological systems in Chernobyl called The Animals of Chernobyl, and now also showing how the same effects now can be seen in Fukushima after the Fukushima Disaster.



The Animals of Chernobyl - Mutated Apple

In 1986 an explosion and fire at the nuclear reactor at what was then the Soviet union in Chernobyl Ukraine, launched an plume of radioactive fallout that rendered a large swath of the region here uninhabitable.

Since then the creation of a 1000 square mile exclusion zone prohibiting human activity has led some to declare the area an restored eden, brimming with wild life.

But for more than an decade Timothy A. Mousseau an American scientist has conducted an extensive biological survey here, and his studies have shown that life has been far more slow to recover than previously believed.

The Animals of Chernobyl - Mutated Birds Tumours
Mutated Birds with Tumours Chernobyl
It is a perfect area for biological studies because we see a lot of diversity of plants and animals, it is one of the hotter areas in the Chernobyl zone and so from our previous working now this level of chronic exposure is above that what most species will tolerate.

This year we have been looking at these small rodents, we have been looking at spiders.

Earlier this year we were here working with the birds, we find that the abundance of many species of birds are depressed in these areas of high contamination, leading to an overall decrease in the biodiversity on the order of 50 percent fewer species in hot areas than there should be if there wasn't radioactivity in the area.

Timothy A. Mousseau says he have seen much higher frequency of tumours and physical abnormalities, like deformed beaks among birds compared with those from uncontaminated areas.

Hello everyone, a dear reader AWe from Costa Rica (Pacific Ocean Side) have just shared with us some of the horrors that she is witnessing first hand here on the Radioactive Chat.

Washing up on the Coast, massive deaths and sickness of the sea life, fishermen and surfers with all sorts of health issues like chronic stomach pain, odd skin rashes & peeling..

I decided it was best for you to hear this in her own words and show you the photos she sent that to me show nothing but massive genetic damage caused by the ongoing Fukushima disaster..

The really sad part about all this to me is that this is genetic damage by radiation that can never be undone. Future generations wont see pretty sand dollars and amazing sea life. At this point in time the sea life is forever damaged, in the future however the sea life and everything affected will most likely be extinct.

AWe: Hola from Costa Rica...Pacific Coast side...honestly, seeing severe genetic mutations already.. lots of ecosystem devastation & very strange changes to say the least

JD: Hola, nice to hear from you. Do you see mutations in vegetation? Or is it more in the sea life?
8 Apr 14, 10:34 AM

AWe: Thanks for the inquiry JD, seriously..we kind of need that, it feels like a hug. Pura Vida. Yes, we are seeing this a little in plant life (not food), & very strange things in the sea life.
8 Apr 14, 12:41 PM

AWe: I have detailed pictures. Now things are washing up that long time local fisherman cannot identify. LOTS of sand dollars & blowfish in particular. All the sand dollars have holes burned through them.
8 Apr 14, 02:43 PM

AWe: The snails aren't able to hold onto the rocks upside down anymore, they fall off?!? They have red sores or something & struggle until they die.
8 Apr 14, 02:45 PM

AWe: The crabs are mutating in lots of ways, so many to even explain here in these few lines. Huge gross appendages, monstrous deformities.
8 Apr 14, 02:46 PM

AWe: Again, I have pictures of this. I just don't know where to send them or if they will even get there. I hope this is a secure chat line!! hahaha
8 Apr 14, 02:48 PM

AWe: The reason being, I have already lost my last computer & phone to software virus' after I started posting them up in December. Other things happened too.
8 Apr 14, 02:49 PM

AWe: Anyway, I am a real person & this is really happening to us. The surfers here are starting to feel ill in weird ways, & I searched for 5 hours yesterday to find 4 shells.
8 Apr 14, 02:51 PM

AWe: I haven't found something totally normal in about a month and a half. We lived in a pristine environment really, I can't even begin to describe. Entonces, gracias Radioactive Chat community!!

JD: Well thank you so much for coming on here and talking because most people don't know what is really happening Awe :)
8 Apr 14, 02:57 PM

JD: You could send me pictures if you can and I'll post then on here for you
8 Apr 14, 03:16 PM

AWe: Ps.Just to be thorough, one small red crab species does not seem to be affected that much, & I forgot to mention our 7 month baby kittens have weird paws & exhibit behavior like squirrels & dogs...?
8 Apr 14, 03:19 PM

AWe: Ok!! My day has begun in the jungle here, so I have to tend to the chores & cannot stay online. However, later today I will compile them & send them off!! Thank you for the forum.

AWe: Well, now I am sending you part of the photo collection just to give you the heads up. I am worried this conversation will somehow be compromised before I can send them to you later.
8 Apr 14, 03:31 PM

JD: Thanks got the pics, I'll scale them down and try and post all pics. I'm no marine biologist but there is something very wrong with the cellular division on these sand dollars
8 Apr 14, 03:47 PM

AWe: I just need to be more precise on my previous explanations..especially if the scientific community ever reads this, because every detail counts. It's also very worth the risk to inform people.

AWe: Also want to clarify that many numerous strange skeletons & unidentifiable parts of sea creatures wash up every day now. Also a massive amount of sand dollars & blowfish bones/skulls.
9 Apr 14, 05:24 PM
Costa Rica Severe Genetic Mutations Pacific Coast Sea Life Fukushima Radiation - Photo 1-1
Costa Rica Fish death Sea Life - Photo 1-1

AWe: Every single dead sand dollar washing up has holes in either the front, back, or both. It looks like the actual creature is melting out of its shell, or a reaction from the inside out.
9 Apr 14, 05:27 PM

AWe: Sand dollars are pearly white here, & these we are now finding contain various shades of purple & green. Usually containing both pigments, or just green & covered with hair sometimes.
9 Apr 14, 05:31 PM

AWe: Yes, their cell division is obviously weird & almost all are asymmetrical or mutated in some way. They are not forming perfectly & the two different types are now sharing unique traits w/ each other.
9 Apr 14, 05:37 PM

AWe: I first noticed the snails around the beginning of January. On a walk I would see many upside down & struggling. I would assist them, & later return to find more than before.
9 Apr 14, 05:41 PM

Costa Rica Severe Genetic Mutations Pacific Coast Sea Life Fukushima Radiation - Photo 2
More Genetic Mutations Sea Life Costa Rica - Photo 2
AWe: I have not seen one alive for at least a week. I have been searching hard as well, only to discover that the tide pools do not exist here anymore & it is just pools of foamy water containing no life.
9 Apr 14, 05:45 PM

AWe: Something is obviously going on with the shells & tide pools as well. I know the way they form is kind of a mystery, but these are not forming correctly at all. They form open already or just one side
9 Apr 14, 05:47 PM

AWe: Oh, I forgot to mention again that all the snails have red/purple sore on their bodies(usually white/clear), which I assume is the reason they could not hold onto the rocks while inverted.
9 Apr 14, 05:49 PM

AWe: The Fantasma crab seems to be the only one unaffected, or so it appears. Their population is rapidly multiplying. Another blue crab with spots is now growing orange claws & spikes on their head...?

9 Apr 14, 05:52 PM

AWe: Halloween crabs are growing larger than normal appendages, as are the other species which have one arm bigger than the other. Now I see them so pronounced that the crab just drags it around.
9 Apr 14, 05:55 PM

AWe: Also, strange things with their shells, eye color, color in general. Huge deviations concerning odd numbers of legs, more legs on one side, & hairy 'spider legs' becoming prominent features.
9 Apr 14, 05:56 PM

AWe: I am also very worried about the fishermen here. Everything from strange foot fungus that refuses to go away even after the nail is removed, to chronic stomach pain, odd skin rashes & peeling.
9 Apr 14, 05:59 PM

AWe: A lot of weird melted (emphasis on MELTED) plastic trash has been washing up in the tideline mixed in with all the dead ocean life. Massive amounts of trash have been washing up here since 2011.
9 Apr 14, 06:00 PM

AWe: I have painfully decided to stop swimming or surfing anymore. I was also walking a lot in the water for research in the newly present foam & yellow brown bubbly water that is everywhere here.
9 Apr 14, 06:02 PM

AWe: Then the skin started peeling of my feet & I was getting horrible skin rashes. Not like cracked dry skin though, long sections were peeling off, exposing open layers underneath.
9 Apr 14, 06:04 PM

AWe: So, I hope those details are helpful in terms of the current state of the ocean here. I have left out many other details, although it is most certainly affecting the entire ecosystem. Gracias & thanks

I would like to add that what AWe have been doing here is greatly appreciated, this is the kind of stories you wont get on the news. Big thanks!

And I'm really hoping more people would join in and contribute if only a little bit in this effort, as summer approaches for the rest of us every little thing helps to spread the word. 

Think about this, if you stand by and do nothing when a crime is committed you would be charged as an accomplice. And even if the main criminal (TEPCO) is not charged or convicted. You could be prosecuted!

So don't just stand there, do something! Write something, paint something, sing something, record something, take a picture.. Anything!

☢ Alaska Wont Test Fukushima Radiation In Fish ☢

There may well be reason for Jonathan to think that "Alaska can run Nuclear Ractors on Bananas".
The Plutonium Content in Bananas is soon so great that we may soon run our Nuclear Plants on Bananas
Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins is a 24-year-old legislator representing Sitka in the Alaska House of Representatives, and in his newsletter we can read about his "expert" opinions on the Fukushima Radiation Fallout hitting Alaska. Talking to Dr. Ken Buesseler another leading expert on the matter.

Alaska wont test Radiation levels in fish because as our 24 year old "expert" Jonathan so reassuringly puts it..

Fukushima Fallout Released 100.000 Times more Cesium 137 than Chenrobyl or Nuclear Weapons Testing"the solution to (Fukushima Radiation) pollution is in fact dilution."
Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins said.

"To be clear: there may well be more radiation in a banana (and who doesn't love bananas?) than off our Alaska coast." Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins said.

There may well be reason for Jonathan to think that "Alaska can run Nuclear Ractors on Bananas". Because "Nuclear Experts" in the media say so!

The science behind the newsletter and from Dr. Ken Buesseler of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution can also be read in the following posts

☢ [IMAGE] Fukushima 100.000 Times More Cesium-137 Than Chernobyl or Nuclear Weapons Testing ☢

Please also take note that Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins was not even born when the Chernobyl Disaster happened, the 100.000 times more Cesium 137 along with Uranium and MOX Fuel Plutonium that the Fukushima Disaster have been emitting and dumping into the Ocean and Atmosphere have never been seen in the history off mankind.


So far 314.700 Tons of Radioactive Reactor Water have been flowing into the Pacific Ocean and it continues to do so and have been doing so from the start 1049 days ago at an amount of 400 tons daily.

Ocean is dead because of Fukushima
Ocean is dead because of Fukushima

The simulations, scientific studies shown to the public have NOT taken this into the calculations to date! There have now been 314.700 Tons more radiation flowing into the Pacific Ocean and that number is missing in all studies and simulations.

Video Transcript from 15:15 minutes in to 17:30 min


Yukiko Kameya can never return home again
Evacuated from Futaba, Japan. Can never return home.
YUKIKO KAMEYA, Former Resident of Futaba, Japan (Evacuated From Town Near Fukushima): [Translated] When I fled from Futaba I could not even talk. I could not even have friends over or anything, but my people encouraged me to be standing here right now. Without any peoples help I could not be here. That's why I appreciate them and want to join them in their cause.

Reporter: What is your message to the Japanese government and the world about nuclear power?


YUKIKO KAMEYA, Former Resident of Futaba, Japan: I don't want anyone in the world to experiece what we have experienced, we have housing in Futaba but there is nothing there. Everything was robbed. All the furniture was brokened, I cant really go back there, we know it. We don't want anyone in the world to be in the situation that we are in. There are 59 children with thyroid problem, and there are hundreds more on the way. The real problem in Fukushima is children can not go out and play. They have to stay inside and this is not the way children should grow up. I don't want anyone in the world or Japan to experience this type of situation for children. So I want to stop Nuclear Facilities right now and I don't want them to be continued.


Reporter: Do you think you will ever be able to return to your home?

YUKIKO KAMEYA, Former Resident of Futaba, Japan: The Futaba where I live is not livable and the government say so. So I know we are never going back in my entire life. But for the Fukushima Prefecture it is still not safe, the radiation level is still very high. So I don't think it is safe and I don't think we will go back there.

Reporter: And what is your assessment of how the government has handled the crisis?

YUKIKO KAMEYA, Former Resident of Futaba, Japan: We expected our government to do a better job when this accident happened. But they don't really do what you want. They ignore all the problems we’re having. There are many young people between 15 and 19 in Fukushima who are in high school who have died suddenly. For example, this morning I saw an online story that a 17-year-old died from Leukemia. In the morning when his mother came to wake him up, he was found dead in bed. Everyone says this was caused by the radiation levels from the nuclear accident. But our government never recognized it, and there are 59 children with thyroid cancer, they’ll never recognize it as being caused by the radiation.

This is a rush transcript. Copy may not be in its final form.


AMY GOODMAN: Music from the film Nuclear Nation: The Fukushima Refugees Story. This is Democracy Now!, democracynow.org, The War and Peace Report. This is the third day of our broadcast from Tokyo, Japan, and the final day. We are talking about moving in on the third anniversary of the Fukushima disaster. Nineteen thousand people died or went missing on that day, March 11th, 2011, and the days afterwards, when the earthquake triggered a tsunami, and three of the reactors at the Fukushima nuclear power plant melted down.

We’re joined right now by Futaba’s former mayor, Katsutaka Idogawa. For years, he embraced nuclear power. Now he has become a vocal critic. He is featured in the film Nuclear Nation.

We welcome you to Democracy Now! And thank you for traveling two hours to join us here at the studios of NHK International for this conversation. Mayor, explain what happened on that day, special thanks to Mary Joyce, who is translating for you today, on that day, March 11, 2011, and the days afterwards, when you decided it was time for the thousands of people who lived in your town, Futaba, to leave.

KATSUTAKA IDOGAWA: [translated] On that day, there was an earthquake of the scale of something we’d never experienced before. It was a huge surprise. And at the time, I was just hoping that nothing had happened to the nuclear power plant. However, unfortunately, there was in fact an accident there. And then I worked with the many residents, and thinking about how I could fully evacuate them from the radiation.

AMY GOODMAN: You made a decision to evacuate your town before the Japanese government told the people in the area to do this, but not before the U.S. government told Americans to leave the area and other governments said the same.

KATSUTAKA IDOGAWA: [translated] Yes, the Japanese government’s information to evacuate became much later than that, and my mistake at the time was initially waiting to hear that. If I had made the decision even three hours earlier, I would have been able to prevent so many people from being so heavily exposed to radiation; however, as a result of that, unfortunately, several hundreds of people were directly affected by this radiation.

AMY GOODMAN: Where did you decide to move the whole town?

KATSUTAKA IDOGAWA: [translated] I was originally thinking about this at the time of the earthquake on March 11 first. However, at first, I was waiting to rely on the government information to decide the timing for this.

AMY GOODMAN: And so, you moved the town to a school in the outskirts of Tokyo, is that right? The entire town to an abandoned school? Explain how you set up your government, your whole community, in this one building.

KATSUTAKA IDOGAWA: [translated] Right at the start, we were unfortunately not able to evacuate all of the residents, and some actually did remain within parts of Fukushima prefecture. And as a result of this, there was actually a gap created between those who were still remaining within the greater Fukushima prefecture area and those who evacuated to Saitama, outside of Tokyo. And the reason for this is we had no access to communication, to information, to mobile phones.

AMY GOODMAN: And so, how long did people stay? How many people were in this school? And what role did the government play? How has the government helped the refugees?

KATSUTAKA IDOGAWA: [translated] We were able to evacuate around 1,400 of the residents to Saitama prefecture, outside of Tokyo. So they were saved from the initial first exposure, the most serious exposure to radiation at the time. But many of them, unable to deal with the situation, gradually started to return to different parts of Fukushima prefecture.

AMY GOODMAN: You have not returned back to your town?

KATSUTAKA IDOGAWA: [translated] Yes, I am still living in evacuation away from the heavily radiated areas.

AMY GOODMAN: Can you talk about the meetings that you have had with the government? You have had a remarkable association of nuclear mayors in Japan, the mayors who live—who preside over towns that have nuclear power plants in them.

KATSUTAKA IDOGAWA: [translated] From before the accident, we had always been strongly calling upon the government, and also TEPCO, to make sure that no accident was ever allowed to happen. And they were always telling us, "Don’t worry, Mayor. No accident could ever happen." However, because this promise was betrayed, this is why I became anti-nuclear.

AMY GOODMAN: I want to go to a clip from Atsushi Funahashi’s new documentary film about the former residents of Futaba, where the Fukushima Daichi nuclear power plant is partly located. The film is called Nuclear Nation: The Fukushima Refugees Story. And we’re going to go to a part of the film that shows a part of this remarkable meeting of government officials with the atomic mayors, the nuclear mayors of Japan.


BANRI KAIEDA: [translated] The future of energy production and Japanese energy policy is currently being debated, and this is something we’ve communicated to you. Regarding the details of this review, I believe it’s important to clearly define the terms as soon as possible. Thank you very much.


MARC CARPENTIER, Narrator: The industry minister leaves his seat in the first five minutes.


GOSHI HOSONO: [translated] The central and prefectural governments are working on the annual health check guidelines. Based on what we’ve researched until now, the impact of radiation on children appears negligible. However, we will endeavor to keep you apprised of any developments.


MARC CARPENTIER: The nuclear crisis minister follows suit, citing official duties.


CHAIRPERSON: [translated] And now, we’d like to open the floor for comments. Please raise your hands. OK, go ahead.


MAYOR KATSUTAKA IDOGAWA: [translated] I’m representing Futaba. I want to know why we’re being made to feel this way. It’s frustrating. What does the nuclear power committee think? When you came and explained it to us, you lied, saying it was safe and secure. But we, who trusted and believed you, can no longer live in our own town.

AMY GOODMAN: That last voice was the mayor at the time of Futaba, Katsutaka Idogawa, who is with us today in our Tokyo studio. Futaba is where part of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant is located. He was speaking, addressing this meeting of government officials and nuclear mayors from around Japan in August of 2011. You just heard, oh, the voices of Goshi Hosono, who was the nuclear crisis minister of Japan, and Banri Kaieda, a minister of the economy, trade and industry. And after each of them spoke, they politely took their leave of the room before the mayors could address them, so they did not hear the Futaba mayor’s statement about the lies from the government. Talk about that particular meeting.

KATSUTAKA IDOGAWA: [translated] At the time, we were calling for a strong response and attention from the government since the disaster. However, they didn’t even try to listen to what we were calling for. And they continued to not even try to make efforts to fulfill their responsibilities or promise to us. And so, they continued to appear before us, those who were suffering directly from the disaster, but instead of listening to something which would maybe be difficult for their ears to hear, they would just leave the room, not even listen to us at all. And within those who were left in the room were some government officials, including some who were directly the ones who told me that no accident would ever happen. However, no matter what I would try to appeal and say to them, it would not have any effect, so instead I turned around and appealed and spoke to my colleagues, my fellow residents, and I tried to tell them what was really happening, the situation.

AMY GOODMAN: Former Mayor Katsutaka Idogawa, you were a fierce proponent of nuclear power. You were pushing for two more reactors to be built even closer to Futaba than the others. You were proud of getting tens of millions of dollars for your town for hosting these reactors. How did you make your transition to being one of the most vocal government officials against all nuclear power?

KATSUTAKA IDOGAWA: [translated] I had been supporting the nuclear power plants in our town on the condition that no accident, no disaster, would be allowed to occur. It was not necessarily that I was actually totally in favor of the nuclear power plants; however, the situation that was in places without the nuclear power plants there, our city would be losing the financial benefits and perhaps unable to go forward economically. The city was actually on the brink of bankruptcy beforehand. And so, in order to try and prevent the city from going into this kind of economic breakdown, I saw that building the new two reactors was perhaps the only way.

AMY GOODMAN: I want to go to a clip, another clip of Nuclear Nation, that gives us a little background on the town of Futaba.


MARC CARPENTIER: Futaba’s farming history goes back over a thousand years. In winter months, people had to leave town for work in the city. Reactors 5 and 6 came online in 1978 and ’79. Money flowed in from the government, and the townspeople found themselves with lots of extra cash. They built roads, a library, a sprawling sports center, and made major upgrades to the infrastructure.

AMY GOODMAN: Nuclear Nation, talking about nuclear refugees, the nuclear refugees of Futaba. And we’re joined by the former mayor, who made the decision, on his own, right after the earthquake, to move his entire town, to evacuate it to Tokyo, being deeply concerned about the levels of radiation and feeling that the government was lying to them about the dangers in the area. This was a mayor, Katsutaka Idogawa, who was fiercely for nuclear power, was proud to be able to get two more reactors in his town to build the economy, to get tens of millions of dollars, and then turned around after the meltdown, after the earthquake, the tsunami and the ultimate meltdown of three of the six existing reactors.

Mayor, right now, you are not the only one who turned around in office. Naoto Kan, the prime minister, also a fierce proponent, is now speaking out all over the world against nuclear power. But just this week, as we flew in to Japan, the government of Prime Minister Abe, the most conservative government since World War II, announced that it wants to build more reactors in Japan. How are you organizing? What are you doing now?

KATSUTAKA IDOGAWA: [translated] Without being able to even deal with the consequences of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the position to promote nuclear power still is something which is just unthinkable to me. And I believe it’s really important for the prime minister to look at what he’s actually been responsible for and have regret and really deal with what they have done, before they can actually go forward and do anything. And the disaster now is bigger than anything we can cope with. It’s a disaster on an international level, and huge consequences, so he needs to really recognize this.

AMY GOODMAN: So who’s driving the push for more nuclear power? The country, already 30 percent dependent for its energy on nuclear power, had plans to make the country more than 50 percent by 2030. But after this catastrophe, who is pushing for these nuclear power plants?

KATSUTAKA IDOGAWA: [translated] The nuclear power system is constructed to use huge amounts of public tax. And this is a very tasty, shall we say, position or situation for the large corporations. They were really behind this push. However, much public taxpayers’ money is being used behind this. And I believe it’s so important to prevent our taxes from being used for any of this kind.

AMY GOODMAN: What has happened to the Fukushima refugees today?

KATSUTAKA IDOGAWA: [translated] There are so many people who want to evacuate but don’t have the means to be able to actually do that and are still living in this situation, who want to do something, but they have no support. And another huge issue is those who are still forced to be living within the greater Fukushima prefecture area do not have access to full health measurements, health treatments, and the kind of support that they need. And they’re also told that any diseases or sickness that they have is not caused by radiation.

AMY GOODMAN: You are traveling the world. Can you tell us the countries you’ve been to and why you’re speaking there?

KATSUTAKA IDOGAWA: [translated] I’m working with people all around the world, speaking with people who are working against nuclear power in their own areas.

AMY GOODMAN: You went to Finland?

KATSUTAKA IDOGAWA: [translated] Yes.

AMY GOODMAN: Why?

KATSUTAKA IDOGAWA: [translated] I went to Finland to speak with people who are working against the construction of nuclear power plants in their areas, because they knew our situation and what happened to us, and we’re trying to work together to prevent this from ever happening to them.

AMY GOODMAN: In the United States, a nuclear power plant has not been built in close to 40 years, very much because of the anti-nuclear movement and the cost of what it means to build a nuclear power plant and what to do with the waste. But President Obama has talked about a nuclear renaissance and is pushing for the building of several new plants for the first time in decades. What message would you share with him?

KATSUTAKA IDOGAWA: [translated] The nuclear power disaster is not just of Fukushima. This is a disaster of all humanity, of the entire world. There is a Japanese saying, and its meaning is that, well, any kind of disaster, three times is the limit. And we have had the three large disasters: one in the United States, one at Chernobyl, and now Fukushima. The Earth will not be able to cope with any further nuclear disasters. For the children of the future, the future generations, I hope that we can stop this now.

AMY GOODMAN: What is the alternative?

KATSUTAKA IDOGAWA: [translated] Well, I’ve heard in U.S. there is shale gas, for example. But as well as other forms of energy, I believe it’s also very important now to look at how we can have lifestyles that rely less on energy, that use less energy more efficient in our homes and in our offices. And Prime Minister Koizumi is also suggesting this.

AMY GOODMAN: Prime Minister Koizumi, very significant that a conservative former prime minister also came out against nuclear power.

KATSUTAKA IDOGAWA: [translated] Even he looked at the actual situation. And I believe that Prime Minister Koizumi really visited places affected by nuclear power to really see what is happening, and he’s really speaking sincerely now.

AMY GOODMAN: I want to thank you very much for joining us on Democracy Now!, Katsutaka Idogawa, former mayor of the town of Futaba, where part of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant is located. The entire town was rendered uninhabitable by the nuclear meltdown. This is Democracy Now!, democracynow.org, The War and Peace Report. Stay with us. After break, crowdsourcing radiation monitoring. We’ll look at how a group called Safecast has helped Japanese civilians turn their smartphones into Geiger counters. Stay with us.

☢ How Many Bananas Do You Need To Eat To Get a Metallic Taste In Your Mouth? ☢

The USS Ronald Reagan was only a mile away from the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant and became contaminated with radiation during the Fukushima Disaster 2011. Since then many of the sailors have become ill and are showing Radiation Sickness.

How in the world can a state of the art ship that was made to withstand battle not even protect the crew against radiation. USS Ronald Reagan was sitting in a nuclear plume for five plus hours, how is it possible that they suck up nuclear contaminated waste into the water filtration system and think for one minute that there’s no health risk to the sailors!

"Lindsay Cooper who was on the deck, it started to snow and then she tasted this metallic taste in her mouth, and so did the others."

 

The USS Ronald Reagan crew show signs of Radiation Sickness, Radiation Madness, Radiation Burns, all from the fallout from Fukushima. But no doctors will admit to it, and they are left outside of the system. All along "Nuclear Experts" are saying everything is fine, dont worry!

Could it be that they have been all deceived by bananas?


There seems to be a lot of "Nuclear Experts" around these days that say the radiation you get from eating bananas is equal to man made Radioactive Uranium and Plutonium waste. Tim Worstall said so, he even goes on to say that we all now can run our Nuclear Reactors on bananas! That and "The Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Will Kill No One"..

You can look for yourself, here's his article on Forbes!

Tim Worstall said we can run our Nuclear Reactors on bananas!

So how many bananas do you need to eat to get a metallic taste in your mouth?

"One medium banana packs about 422 milligrams of potassium, about 11 percent of the 4,700 milligrams adults should aim to get daily."

Could it really be that the human body and most living things on earth can handle potassium!

Or should we be alarmed over the fact that the middle east have gotten their hands on banana centrifuges. These pictures taken of the Super Top Secret Iran Banana Centrifuge program leaked recently, show that they are hard at work to weaponize bananas!


Voice of Russia – US Edition, AUDIO Jan. 15, 2014:

At 7:30 in

Paul C. Garner, attorney for Navy sailors exposed to Fukushima radioactive contamination: They’re out there in the elements breathing it in, soaking it in. According to Lindsay Cooper who was on the deck, it started to snow and then she tasted this metallic taste in her mouth, and so did the others. And they were having snow ball fights and joking around about it, until they were warned that it was radioactive and they should not be doing that.

At 9:45 in

Garner: They were considered to be too highly radioactive [...] The Reagan sailed around for weeks before they could find a friendly port to land in. By that time the people on board were pretty well toast. And the Reagan itself became contaminated. After that the Reagan spent a year and half in Bremerton, Washington for what they considered to be routine maintenance, but it was anything but routine. They decontaminated the vessel as best they could, and they shipped the contaminated debris over to Hanford.

☢ [Caught On Camera] Alaska Wild Grizzly Bear Dies From Radiation Heart Attack ☢

Video showing an Alaskan wild grizzly bear that runs uphill and then suddenly dies from an heart attack was caught on camera at Kodiak Island, Alaska, USA.

There have been many, many reports of strange animal deaths this past year and the most recent one from Alaska is the wild grizzly bear the simply drops dead in it's tracks.


The amounts of Cesium-137 and 134 to name a few radioisotopes from the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster have been so great that we are already seeing massive deaths of animals in both the Pacific Ocean and on the Coasts where radiation have become more concentrated.

To date some 300.000 Tons of radioactive reactor water at about 300-400 tons each day have been flowing into the Pacific Ocean with no end in sight in an desperate attempt to cool the fuel pools and meltdowns.


Cesium in particular is a known cause of heart attacks. Cesium-137 is a potassium analog so it gets absorbed by the body the same way potassium is. Cesium-137 tends to concentrate in the heart muscle and cause heart attacks.


It can't be excluded that this bear died from an virus infection or disease instead of radioactive Cesium stored in it's heart. However the bear did not act in any strange manner before the death either, the bear did not show any such symptoms. It simply got exhausted running up the hill and died on the spot.

☢ [IMAGE] Fukushima 100.000 Times More Cesium-137 Than Chernobyl or Nuclear Weapons Testing ☢

Radioisotopes in the Pacific Ocean. What's There? How Much? How Long?

The release of radioisotopes from the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear disaster in March 2011 amounts to the largest ever accidental release of radiation into the ocean. The explosions initially released radioisotopes in the form of iodine-131, cesium-134 and cesium-137 from the reactors. All of these Nobel isotopes cause health problems.

In the weeks after Fukushima nuclear disaster, Ken Buesseler a marine chemist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, organized an expedition with scientists from different fields and institutions to investigate radioisotopes from the damaged nuclear plant that ended up in the ocean and marine life. They used nets to sample organisms and instruments to collect more than 1,500 water samples in 30 locations off Japan. Water and biological samples were sent to 16 labs in seven countries to detect levels of a variety of radioisotopes. The concentrations measured in early April 2011 were all the more alarming.

In June 2011, Buesseler led a quickly organized expedition aboard the research vessel Ka' imikai-o-Kanaloa that took a comprehensive look at the fate of the Fukushima radiation both in the open ocean and in marine life. Beginning 600 kilometers offshore and coming within 30 kilometers of the crippled nuclear plant, the research team sailed a sawtooth pattern, gathering water samples from as deep as 1,000 meters, and collecting samples of phytoplankton, zooplankton, and small fish. They also released two dozen drifters to track currents. These instruments move with to ocean currents over months and report their positions via satellite. Like their Japanese colleagues, Buesseler's team measured elevated levels of both cesium-137 and the telltale cesium-134 in the water they collected.

Please also note that the report here have excluded 296.100 tons of radioactive reactor water that have leaked into the Pacific Ocean since this disaster began at the amount of 300-400 tons per day and which continue to leak to this very day.  

 

So 100.000 times more Cesium-137 reported is on the LOW SIDE.

Fukushima Released 100.000 Times more Cesium-137 Into Surface Ocean Waters Than Chernobyl or Nuclear Weapons Testing

Geiger Counters - Radiation Detection Meters - Handheld Radiation Detector



When it comes to radiation detection meters you really have a wide field of gadgets to choose from, however radiation detectors are the most common to use. First of all if you need to know what type of radiation you are looking for. There are Alpha, Beta and Gamma radiation detectors. And also there is neutron emission of nuclear radiation. And all these different types of emissions have radiation detectors for a specific type of radiation that you can buy radiation detector for. Some also measure both Alpha and Beta. Others detect Alpha, Beta and Gamma. While others let you measure Beta and Gamma radiation.



What most people have use for though are Dosimeters you can buy a handheld radiation detector pretty cheap that are good addition to a survival kit. There are different kinds that you can use that will detect radiation. There are radiation badges that will tell you when radiation become high. Workers at nuclear power plants use these to inform them of how much radiation they have been exposed to. Now also children in the Fukushima prefecture have each been given a radiation badge so they know if they are exposed to radiation. Some come in the shape of a pen that you can carry in your pocket while other are made more compact so that you can attach them to your keychain. And then you have what is called a personal radiation monitor. These are also called Dosimeters and also normally called Geiger counters. Although not all use the Geiger-Muller Tube for the radiation detection some use a semiconductor instead. These and mostly the older geiger counters seen are pretty big to carry around, so they might not be best suited for a survival situation where you only need to carry the most important things. However if you have land and want to check radiation around the property and drinking water then these are the geiger counters to get because they are very well built units.

These are the once that you normally see people use. They have different units of radiation detection, because when it comes to radiation there are many standards used. some give the measurements in Rads, while other use Sieverts. Some have the maximum radiation value for the measured radioactivity quite low but they will still give you an idea of the amount of radiation in the area. With the units ranging from between background radiation 0.001 mSv/hr all the way up to 10 Sv/h. Normally a dosimeter will measure radiation in micro siverts per hour. If you were to walk into one of the reactor units at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant you probably would get an error reading from your dosimeter because the radiation levels are so high there.

Note that some places outside the exclusion zone in Fukushima that are too radioactive for people to live in have areas where the radiation levels are above 30 Sv/h. So if you are in a area that have high radiation the radiation detectors would also there go off the scale. However Geiger counters or radiation detectors are still favored as general purpose alpha/beta/gamma portable radiation detectors and radiation detection equipment, due to their low cost and robustness. Most come with an LCD Display that show you the radioactivity in the area. Nowdays you will even get alarm sound and the possibility to connect the device to a computer. Either with a Infrared, Bluetooth or USB connection.

So if you look at the radiation detectors for sale that have this, then these radiation detection meters will allow you to make maps of contaminated areas that show where the radiation is high and low. This also will help you to see which areas are becoming more contaminated over time. With several nuclear reactors in the US and around the world located near fault zones that makes it a danger if a big earthquake would hit the area there is always a good choice to have a radiation dosimeter avaliable. I'm sure many in Fukushima would have been grateful to have dosimeters avaliable at the time of the disaster and I am sure you to would be grateful to have a geiger counter handy when you need one.
