      Do a google search     perhaps     radsafe and nuclear power etc.
      Search at will and change the search  parameters....
      Otherwise, are you in the radsafe  archives???  search from there

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

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.
