Freedom Against Censorship Thailand Warning - Radiation Posioning of Mother Earth

This was an article from Global Research Canada that reveals some of the effects of the spread of radiation in the atmosphere from the Fukushima meltdown in Japan.  In Sweden the government is downplaying this incident and assuring the citizens via dim witted local experts that this couldn't happen here even though a few of the reactors here are often shut down and offline for repairs.  The government is planning the building of ten new reactors in the future which was widely known, but has conveniently not been mentioned since the accident.  The Green Party has proposed a closing of two plants, but this has been lost between the chairs as the Swedes like to say.  I see nuclear power plants as very dangerous and unnecessary in the future.  I once knew an inspector of nuclear power plants in the 1980's and he said that they were falling apart then and a disaster waiting to happen and recommended not to live within one hundred US miles from any if possible.  Now, below is part of the article and for those interested to read more, I will give the link at the end of  the text.

Radiation Spreads Worlwide. The Poisoning of Mother Earth

Nuclear power “too cheap to meter”!

On April 12, Japan’s nuclear safety agency raised the Fukushima meltdown to level 7, the highest category on the International Nuclear Event Scale. Level 7 was created expressly for the Chernobyl disaster, consisting of “a major release of radiation with a widespread health and environmental impact”.

A recent study was prepared for Greenpeace Germany by international nuclear safety expert Dr. Helmut Hirsch. Dr. Hirsch’s assessment, based on data published by the French government’s radiation protection agency (IRSN) and the Austrian government’s Central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics (ZAMG) found that the total amount of unstable radionuclides Iodine-131 and Caesium-137 released between March 11 and March 23 has been so high that the Fukushima crisis already equates to three INES 7 incidents.

Release of radiation from the stricken reactors has reached 10,000 teraBequerels (10,000 trillion Bequerels) per hour, measured for radioactive Iodine-131.

Radiation in milk in Hawaii is now at least 2,033% above Federal drinking water safety limits. The US safety limit is 3 pCi/l (picoCuries per litre). Note this is the minimum percentage found over EPA requirements. This figure is reached by adding together the Caesium-134 (800%); −137 (633%); and Iodine-131 (600%) levels found in milk. .

It should be noted the testing was performed on samples of organic milk.

Increased radiation has been reported in the municipal drinking water of at least 14 US cities. These are not restricted to the west coast of North America but have occurred in the US midwest and east coast. Where measured, rainwater in every US state and Canadian province have elevated radioactivity. In California, Geiger counter activity has trebled, from 7.5 to 22.5 clicks per minute.

Update, April 14, 2011:

There has been a great interest in this blog entry and in reply to a comment of someone in the comment section, I have left several links on preventions and what to do if you have concerns about radiation posioning and there is always simple precautions and remedies if you only take some time to look.  Don't let fear get the best of you, stay calm.  Just by staying calm one can strengthen and increase the efficiency of the body's immune system.

Do you know, Mike, where we can get the symptoms of radiation poisoning? And if we have those symptoms, isn't it too late to live, anyway?
Thanks for posting this. I find it really scary, though.

Hello Pam:

There is always something that can be done for any symptoms of any ailment and it's never too late to effect a positive change in health. Remember, fear does not promote a strong immune system. Staying calm also promotes good health.

Now, here is some information that might be helpful on what to do if concerned about raditation poisoning:

I hope that you find this helpful,
