Rather doubt that these now being widely broadcasted "facts" are
indeed "fact".  What say you members?

11 Facts About The Ongoing Fukushima Nuclear Holocaust That Are Almost
Too Horrifying To Believe
 by Michael Snyder of www.thetruthwins.com  Is Fukushima the greatest
environmental disaster of all time?  Every single day, 300 tons of
radioactive water from Fukushima enters the Pacific Ocean.  The
radioactive material that is being released will outlive all of us by
a very wide margin, and it is constantly building up in the food

Nobody knows for sure how many people will eventually develop cancer
and other health problems as a result of the Fukushima nuclear
disaster, but some experts are not afraid to use the word “billions”.
It has been well over two years since the original disaster, and now
they are telling us that it could take up to 40 more years to clean it

It is a nightmare of unimaginable proportions, and there is nowhere in
the northern hemisphere that you will be able to hide from it.  The
following are 11 facts about the ongoing Fukushima nuclear holocaust
that are almost too horrifying to believe.

#1 It is estimated that there are 1,331 used nuclear fuel rods that
need to be removed from Fukushima.  Because of all of the damage that
has taken place, computer-guided removal of the rods will not be
possible.  Manual removal is much riskier, and it is absolutely
essential that the removal of each of the 1,331 rods goes perfectly
because a single mistake could potentially lead to a nuclear chain

#2 According to Reuters, the combined amount of cesium-137 contained
in those nuclear fuel rods is 14,000 times greater than what was
released when the U.S. dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima at the end
of World War II.  Other estimates put this number far higher.

#3 Officials in Japan admit that 300 tons of radioactive water from
Fukushima is entering the Pacific Ocean every 24 hours.

#4 According to a professor at Tokyo University, 3 gigabecquerels of
cesium-137 are flowing into the port at Fukushima Daiichi every single

“Yoichiro Tateiwa, NHK reporter: [Professor Jota] Kanda argues
government statistics don’t add up. He says a daily leakage of 300
tons doesn’t explain the current levels of radiation in the water.

Jota Kanda, Tokyo University professor: According to my research there
are now 3 gigabecquerels [3 billion becquerels] of cesium-137 flowing
into the port at Fukushima Daiichi every day. But for the 300 tons of
groundwater to contain this much cesium-137, one liter of groundwater
has to contain 10,000 becquerels of the radioactive isotope.

NHK: Kanda’s research and monitoring by Tepco puts the amount of
cesium-137 in the groundwater around the plant at several hundred
becquerels per liter at most. He’s concluded that radioactive isotope
is finding another way to get into the ocean. He’s calling on the
government and Tepco to identify contamination routes other than

#5 According to Tepco, a total of somewhere between 20 trillion and 40
trillion becquerels of radioactive tritium have gotten into the
Pacific Ocean since the Fukushima disaster first began.

#6 Something is causing fish along the west coast of Canada to bleed
from their gills, bellies and eyeballs.  Could Fukushima be

#7 150 former sailors and Marines say that they now have radiation
sickness as a result of serving on U.S. Navy ships near Fukushima and
they are suing for damages.

#8 The Iodine-131, Cesium-137 and Strontium-90 that are constantly
coming from Fukushima are going to affect the health of those living
the the northern hemisphere for a very, very long time.  Just check
out what Harvey Wasserman had to say recently…

“Iodine-131, for example, can be ingested into the thyroid, where it
emits beta particles (electrons) that damage tissue. A plague of
damaged thyroids has already been reported among as many as 40 percent
of the children in the Fukushima area. That percentage can only go
higher. In developing youngsters, it can stunt both physical and
mental growth. Among adults it causes a very wide range of ancillary
ailments, including cancer.

Cesium-137 from Fukushima has been found in fish caught as far away as
California. It spreads throughout the body, but tends to accumulate in
the muscles.

Strontium-90’s half-life is around 29 years. It mimics calcium and
goes to our bones.”

#9 It is believed that the Fukushima nuclear facility originally
contained a whopping1760 tons of nuclear material.

#10 It is being projected that the entire Pacific Ocean will soon
“have cesium levels 5 to 10 times higher” than what we witnessed
during the era of heavy atomic bomb testing in the Pacific many
decades ago.

#11 According to the Wall Street Journal, it is being projected that
the cleanup of Fukushima could take up to 40 years to complete.

Sadly, the true horror of this disaster is only starting to be
understood, and most people have absolutely no idea how serious all of
this is.  What fallout researcher Christina Consolo told RT the other
day should be very sobering for all of us. “We have endless releases
into the Pacific Ocean that will be ongoing for not only our
lifetimes, but our children’s’ lifetimes. We have 40 million people
living in the Tokyo area nearby. We have continued releases from the
underground corium that reminds us it is there occasionally with steam
events and huge increases in radiation levels. Across the Pacific, we
have at least two peer-reviewed scientific studies so far that have
already provided evidence of increased mortality in North America, and
thyroid problems in infants on the west coast states from our initial

We have increasing contamination of the food chain, through
bioaccumulation and biomagnification. And a newly stated concern is
the proximity of melted fuel in relation to the Tokyo aquifer that
extends under the plant. If and when the corium reaches the Tokyo
aquifer, serious and expedient discussions will have to take place
about evacuating 40 million people from the greater metropolitan area.
As impossible as this sounds, you cannot live in an area which does
not have access to safe water.

The operation to begin removing fuel from such a severely damaged pool
has never been attempted before. The rods are unwieldy and very heavy,
each one weighing two-thirds of a ton. But it has to be done, unless
there is some way to encase the entire building in concrete with the
pool as it is. I don’t know of anyone discussing that option, but it
would seem much ‘safer’ than what they are about to attempt…but not
without its own set of risks.

And all this collateral damage will continue for decades, if not
centuries, even if things stay exactly the way they are now. But that
is unlikely, as bad things happen like natural disasters and
deterioration with time…earthquakes, subsidence, and corrosion, to
name a few. Every day that goes by, the statistical risk increases for
this apocalyptic scenario. No one can say or know how this will play
out, except that millions of people will probably die even if things
stay exactly as they are, and billions could die if things get any

The area immediately around Fukushima is already permanently
uninhabitable, and the truth is that a much wider area of northern
Japan should probably be declared off limits for human habitation.

But this just isn’t about Japan.  The cold, hard reality of the matter
is that this is truly a disaster that is planetary in scope.  The
nuclear material from Fukushima is going to be carried all over the
northern hemisphere, and countless numbers of people are going to
become seriously ill as a result.

And remember, this is a disaster that is not even close to being
contained yet.  Hundreds of tons of radioactive water continues to
enter the Pacific Ocean every single day making the disaster that we
are facing even worse.
