Dr. Chris Busby, another physicist says there is a rage in the people in Tokyo
and he now predicts based on his calculations that 800,000 people out of about 8
million who live within 200 kilomters of the plant will contract cancer if they
are not moved out.
What utter bullshit! Rage in the people of Tokyo? Gimme a break, he doesn't
understand these people. Have you ever heard of the 800,000 people who died of
cancer after the bomb blasts at Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Of course not, because
it didn't happen. It's 25 years after Chernobyl, have you heard of millions
dieing from Chernobyl? No!

This article by Mark Sircu, peddling his revised Iodine book and probably
Iodine supplements quotes both Michio Kaku and Christopher Busby, masters of
using an apparent resume to snow the world's public. (see last line for

minimize this growing disaster:
Fukushima Exposure Levels Going Up Everywhere
April 16, 2011
“Radiation is continuing to leak out of the reactors, the situation is not
stable at all, radiation continues to leak,” says Dr. Michio Kaku, professor
of theoretical physics at the City University of New York and top graduate
of Harvard. “We are looking at a ticking timebomb. It appears stable but the
slightest disturbance, a secondary earthquake, a pipe break, evacuation of
the crew at Fukishima could set off a full scale melt down at three nuclear
power stations–far beyond what we saw at Chernobyl.”
Aftershocks rattling Japan after the nation’s record quake on March 11 may
continue for at least six months, increasing the risk of damage to a
crippled nuclear plant at the center of the worst nuclear crisis since
Chernobyl. “Aftershocks as big as magnitude-7 are likely to continue hitting
in eastern and northern Japan for at least six months,” said Teruyuki Kato,
a professor at the University of Tokyo’s Earthquake Research Institute.
This is the main scientist to listen to and it’s worthwhile to watch his
most recent statements on the video. Radioactive contamination from the
Fukushima power plant has been carried around the world and far out to sea
and if current estimates and the situation do not worsen we already will
have 10 percent of Chernobyl’s radiation spreading around the globe and it
looks like each and every month we will see another 10 percent of another
Chernobyl’s worth of radiation released to contaminate the world further.
Dr. Kaku says his family is already leaving Tokyo because they don’t believe
the statements of the Japanese utility because they have consistently
low-balled the dangers, as has everyone else.
Dr. Chris Busby, another physicist says there is a rage in the people in
Tokyo and he now predicts based on his calculations that 800,000 people out
of about 8 million who live within 200 kilomters of the plant will contract
cancer if they are not moved out. Dr. Kaku still advises entombment in a
giant slab of concrete, with 5000 tons of cement, sand and boric acid but if
that ever happens it will be months away and take a huge effort that would
take many more months.
Dr. Kaku says that the, “Tepco utility people are outclassed and overwhelmed
and should be removed from their positions. They are “making it up as they
go along,” he says of the efforts of engineers to get this disaster under
some control” He too says, “We would see increases in leukemias and thyroid
cancers from the massive amounts of radioactive iodine being released.”
The operator of Japan’s tsunami-flooded nuclear power complex was seeking
ways Thursday to pull damaged spent fuel rods out of a storage pool at one
of its reactors, citing surging radiation and elevated temperatures as
These two physicists are the men to monitor if you want a real assesment of
the level seven nuclear disaster. With each passing week the words “safe”,
“low levels”, “not harmful” will all lose their meaning as the more massive
amounts of radiation are released. Six months from now it will be a
different world with several open fission processes happening in multiple
“This accident has already released something on the order of 50,000
trillion becquerels of radiation. You do the math. That puts it right smack
in the middle of a level 7 nuclear accident,” said Kaku.
NISA and Japan’s Nuclear Safety Commission (NSC) estimate that 370,000 –
630,000 terabecquerels of radioactive materials have been released from
Units 1, 2 and 3. One terabecquerel equals one trillion becquerels.
Br. Busby, who is Scientific Secretary of the European Committee on
Radiation Risk, calculated two weeks ago radiation levels two weeks ago.
“Since the official International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) figures for
the Fukushima contamination are from 200 to 900kBq.sq meter out to 78km from
the site, we can expect between 22% and 90% increases in cancer in people
living in these places in the next 10 years.
The UN definition of radioactively contaminated land is 37kBq/sq metre.
Since the IAEA data show that these levels of contamination, from 200,000 to
900,000 disintegrations per second per square meter, exist up to 78km from
Fukushima, we can already calculate that the contamination is actually worse
than Chernobyl, not 1% of Chernobyl. For the area defined by a 78km radius
is 19113 sq km compared to the Chernobyl exclusion zone of 2827 sq km. About
seven times greater.”
In the next month we will see a repeat or perhaps an intensification of the
radiation being put out into the environment—as the melting nuclear
materials continue to break through barriers. Radiation emitted will
continue for an indeterminate period – at least months, maybe years—many
Raw fission in the open environment is a possibility that humanity is going
to have to learn how to live with. If the worst case happens—as is
happening—then it will be open hunting season on everyone in the nuclear
power industry as well as on politicians who have allowed them to be swayed,
pressured or bribed to swear to the safety of nuclear insanity.
This could be the fire pit of hell brought to earth that will finally expose
the toxic monsters of the modern world for who and what they are. Making
money as they have done and continue to do through the massive use of
poisonous substances, nuclear or chemical, they have compromised their souls
and their right to exist among more sensitive compassionate beings.
There is nothing more urgent in the field of medicine then us getting a
handle on the best ways to eliminate heavy metals, radiation contamination
and other toxic poisons from the body. The most obvious way of course is to
reduce exposure. Sometimes to avoid toxic exposure we have to move out of a
moldy house, out of a city heavily laden with air pollution or even out of a
country if one plans on living a long and healthy life. If humans keep up
with their intense poisoning of this planet it might mean going off the
planet or burrowing deep into the ground.
*Avoiding exposure is not always possible when it
comes to nuclear radiation, mercury and microwaves.*
The Japanese government is making a fatal mistake leaving millions of
citizens too close to the exposure of the badly leaking atomic plant. Their
direction to just stay indoors is not an effective and certainly not a
permanent way to avoid exposure. It is understandable why they would resist
removing millions from their homes but in this case it is the only way to
avoid exposure and resultant radiation sickness.
How secure should we feel about the evolving situation? Dr. Kaku couldn’t
make it any more frank when he said, “Fukushima is about as stable as
“hanging by your fingernails off a cliff, and they’re beginning to break one
Radioactive Iodine -131
China’s Ministry of Health said today April 13, that radioactive isotope
iodine-131 had been detected in various kinds of vegetables in 12 provincial
regions. The radioactive isotope was found in spinach, asparagus, lettuce,
cabbage, Chinese cabbage and other vegetables in Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei,
Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Shandong, Henan, Hunan, Guangdong, Guangxi and
Hainan, according to a statement from the ministry.
The risks associated with iodine-131 contamination in Europe are no longer
“negligible,” according to CRIIRAD, a French research body on radioactivity.
The NGO is advising pregnant women and infants against “risky behavior,”
such as consuming fresh milk or vegetables with large leaves. In response to
thousands of inquiries from citizens concerned about fallout from the
Fukushima nuclear disaster in Europe, CRIIRAD has compiled an information
package on the risks of radioactive iodine-131 contamination in Europe.
After the radioactive cloud emanating from Japan’s stricken Fukushima
nuclear power plant reached Europe in late March, CRIIRAD, a French research
body on radioactivity, an NGO, said it had detected radioactive iodine-131
in rainwater in south-eastern France. In parallel testing, the French
Institute for Radiological Protection and Nuclear Safety (IRSN), the
national public institution monitoring nuclear and radiological risks, found
iodine 131 in milk. In normal times, no trace of iodine-131 should be
detectable in rainwater or milk. Radiation monitors in Canada, in Ontario,
New Brunswick and British Columbia have also detected radioactive iodine.
In the United States EPA data show rising levels of Iodine-131, Cesium-134,
and Cesium-137 up to 300% of maximum limits. Hawaii milk samples showed
radiation 800% above normal for Cesium-134, 633% for Cesium-137, and 600%
for Iodine-131. Water contamination measured over 20 times acceptable
levels. Mainland amounts are also rising, including in air, soil, grass,
milk, spinach, strawberries, and other foods.
Milk is especially important as it suggests the health of the entire food
supply because cows eat grass. When grass is contaminated, so is everything
grown in the same soil.
At least 14 US cities reported unsafe radiation amounts in drinking water.
However, EPA is only testing for Iodine-131, not Cesium, Uranium or
Plutonium, all emitted from Fukushima. Several radiation monitoring stations
throughout Spain have recorded increases in the concentration of iodine and
cesium in the air coming from Japan. Same goes for France.
One does not want to wait for the medical authorities on the iodine issue.
One has to act quickly to protect their thyroid and the thyroids especially
of children. A major cloud of radioactive Iodine 131 has recently passed
over South Korea and is now passing just about everywhere else in the
Medical and health authorities, it seems, want all pregnant women, babies
and children to be unduly exposed to radioactive iodine just because of
their phobia and medical conditioning against nutritional iodine
supplementation. The entire contemporary medical establishment is abandoning
its fundamental mission and pledge to protect the public and their patients
against harm when medically possible.
We have lots of information from Russia about the use of iodine to protect
the thyroid. In Poland the use of iodine dosages was found to highly protect
children’s thyroids from cancer. The risk for cancer of the thyroid is much
greater in children requiring much lower exposure to I-131 than it does for
adults. Same goes for pregnant women or lactating women.
It is a good time to remember Dr. Jeff Patterson’s words, former president
of Physicians for Social Responsibility. “There is no safe level of
radionuclide exposure, whether from food, water or other sources. Period!
Exposure to radionuclides, such as Iodine-131 and Cesium-137, increases the
risk of cancer. For this reason, every effort must be taken to minimize the
radionuclide content in food and water.
Personal Note: In the next 48 hours I will submit to my staff a 2nd edition
of my iodine book, which will be strongly oriented to the entire issue of
iodine as an essential nutrient to protect from radioactive iodine
contamination of the thyroid and other glands that have a large uptake of
iodine under normal conditions.
The situation is guaranteed to get worse so do not wait for the medical
authorities on the iodine issue. For parents waiting means vastly increasing
the chance of watching your children die of thyroid cancer! Do I need to say
that any stronger?
It is not a good time to be caught like deer in the headlights nor have our
heads stuck in the sand about iodine or anything else that affects our
survival. The essential action is to get iodine into our bodies and it does
not have to be “potassium iodide.” It can also be in the form of Nascent
Iodine, which is a 2% formulation based on and old Edgar Casey type that
breaks molecular iodine into its I¹ atomic structure. It is the iodine I
personally use for myself and my children and is ideal for iodine sensitive
people with pre-existing thyroid conditions meaning it is the easiest iodine
to administer, though not the cheapest to use.
There are other forms in both tablet and liquid, even the ones that can be
used topically are effective in reducing people’s vulnerability to
radioactive iodine. (Do NOT drink topical antiseptic iodine products such as
Betadine — these products are not suitable for human consumption. They are
I have to be honest and tell you it’s a great time to be living in the
southern hemisphere. The radiation levels down here will be much delayed and
much reduced and the deep valley where my Sanctuary is being finished feels
very protective because it is ringed with mountains.
I just spent the first few nights at my Sanctuary center deep in the
interior of Brazil and the construction men are still running all over the
place. I can’t wait to open Sanctuary to the world but am not so sure there
will be much of a world on its feet in just a few months’ time as the
financial world careens out of control. I listened to an excellent video
last night that predicts that when the next earnings reports of major
corporations come out in July it will be curtains for the stock markets as
the nuclear disaster is taking the real economy, and thus earnings, down
like a rock.
It was such a pleasure to feel the magic of being surrounded by Nature,
hearing the rivers flowing around Sanctuary. No Internet, so great to be
away from all the bad news and able to concentrate on finishing my
manuscript for the Radiation Toxicity Syndrome book. It is an overwhelming
challenge that is taking me, according to my assistant Claudia, too much
time so I will come out first with the iodine book focused on the
I think it’s a great time to take a vacation from the north or at least get
the women and children out of harm’s way. It’s simply not a good time to be
gambling with the safety of our loved ones—with the possibility of a greater
explosion at the Japanese nuclear power station with a resultant massive
release of radiation that travels far and wide across our planet. Men and
professionals particularly have to sometimes stand their ground and even
sacrifice their lives like the men are doing at the nuclear plant but we
don’t have to risk our children.
Many of the men in the Titanic had to encourage their women and children to
get on the lifeboats without them. But in this case, if a miracle happens
and there is no worse-than-imaginable-case scenario, and all-clear sirens
sound, then families can be reunited. The next few weeks or months will tell
us a whole lot about our futures.
