Heavy sigh!  If you have the facts,  pound the facts.  If you don't have 
the facts, pound the table.   

....What's that awful noise that I hear?

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 chain.

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 up.

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 reaction.

#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 day?

?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 groundwater.?

#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  responsible?

#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 

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 worse.?

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 

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.
