Did you Know Tatsuichiro Akizuki, M.D., director of St. Francis Hospital in Nagasaki, saved the lives of all of his surviving patients after the atomic bombing on August 9, 1945, by prescribing a special diet of miso soup, brown rice, seaweed, and root vegetables

By imposing this diet on his staff and patients, no one succumbed to radiation poisoning whereas the occupants of hospitals located much further away from the blast incident suffered severe radiation fatalities coffeetime.gif

Angry Japan farmers bring Fukushima cow to Tokyo

Angry farmers from Fukushima brought a large cow to the centre of Tokyo Friday to demand Japan's government investigate a disease they say cattle have developed since the nuclear disaster three years ago.

Operators of non-profit "Kibo no Bokujo", or "Farm of Hope", delivered a full-size black cow to the front of the agriculture ministry to demand an investigation into why it and many other animals have developed white dots on their skin since reactors went into meltdown after the earthquake and tsunami of March 2011.

Fukushima’s Children are Dying

Quote:Some 39 months after the multiple explosions at Fukushima, thyroid cancer rates among nearby children have skyrocketed to more than forty times (40x) normal.

More than 48 percent of some 375,000 young people—nearly 200,000 kids—tested by the Fukushima Medical University near the smoldering reactors now suffer from pre-cancerous thyroid abnormalities, primarily nodules and cysts. The rate is accelerating.


More than 120 childhood cancers have been indicated where just three would be expected, says Joseph Mangano, executive director of the Radiation and Public Health Project.

The nuclear industry and its apologists continue to deny this public health tragedy. Some have actually asserted that “not one person” has been affected by Fukushima’s massive radiation releases, which for some isotopes exceed Hiroshima by a factor of nearly 30.

On a side note, a book just came out called 'Lucky Dog'. A woman believes she has thyroid cancer but it takes 3 months to get a biopsy, up to 6 months to get treatment. Happens her husband is a vet, he does the biopsy gets the results back in one week.

Good video on the growing waste problem I did not know every day gets that much waste to try and contain and is leaking.

A deadly situation just under the dance floor Japanese hide there shame and feel very shamed to the point of suicide. And there voices are silenced since they dont have a right to free speech anymore.

Dance now die later

Good to see Kritter box is leaving this growing problem pinned .
Every day new silo storage tanks need to be built and used in Japan with little relief in sight.
Every day more radioactive waste water leaks into our Pacific Ocean.
Many main stream people are clueless about this ongoing problem left upon us and our Children of next generations.

Quote:Many of them die and settle to the bottom of the seafloor, where they are eaten by bottom-dwelling animals such as worms, snails, clams, crabs and seastars. These animals are the ocean's recyclers and cleaners, converting dead and decomposing material back into life. Many of the familiar and valuable seafood species harvested from the Pacific North Coast Integrated Management Area (PNCIMA), such as halibut, sole, crab and sablefish, are reliant on these ocean recyclers as a food source.

If you believe that the radioactive isotopes from Fukushima end up on the ocean floor, which seems feasible, then you may want to research the health of the sea life mentioned in the article I posted.

Doubts over ice wall to keep Fukushima safe from damaged nuclear reactors
Frozen barrier, costing £185m, being built around Fukushima Daiichi's four damaged reactors to contain irradiated water

In fading light and just a stone's throw from the most terrifying scenes during Japan's worst nuclear accident, engineers resumed their race against time to defeat the next big threat: thousands of tonnes of irradiated water.

If all goes to plan, by next March Fukushima Daiichi's four damaged reactors will be surrounded by an underground frozen wall that will be a barrier between highly toxic water used to cool melted fuel inside reactor basements and clean groundwater flowing in from surrounding hills.

Up to 400 tonnes of groundwater that flows into the basements each day must be pumped out, stored and treated – and on-site storage is edging closer to capacity. Decommissioning the plant will be impossible until its operator, Tokyo Electric Power [Tepco] addresses the water crisis.

Last month workers from Tepco and the construction firm Kajima Corp began inserting 1,550 pipes 33 metres vertically into the ground to form a rectangular cordon around the reactors. Coolant set at -30C will be fed into the pipes, eventually freezing the surrounding earth to create an impermeable barrier.

"We started work a month ago and have installed more than 100 pipes, so it is all going according to plan to meet our deadline," Tadafumi Asamura, a Kajima manager who is supervising the ice wall construction, said as workers braved rain, humidity and radiation to bore holes in the ground outside reactor No 4, scene of one of three hydrogen explosions at the plant in the early days of the crisis.

But sealing off the four reactors – three of which melted down in the March 2011 disaster – is costly and not without risks. The 32bn-yen (£185m) wall will be built with technology that has never been used on such a large scale.

The ice concept strikes me as one of the most ludicrous ideas to be implemented in a long time.

Imagine that you had an igloo. In one spot of the rounded ceiling imagine you've got a 100 watt light bulb turned on 24 hours a day that is an inch from the ceiling of the igloo.

Will the single light bulb melt a hole in the igloo? Damn straight!

Now imagine you have a particle that is 5,000 degrees. This particle never turns off. But it will go to half power in 30 years.

What chance does the ground have to stop the 5,000 degree particle from melting the ground which is to be frozen at some temperature that is warmer than -30 degrees C?

You could have a 100-foot thick block of ice, but that 5,000 degree particle is going to melt a hole in that ice because the heat never stops being emitted from the particle.

Even if they keep trying to freeze the ground at -30 C continuously, the 5,000 degree particle is going to liquify a hole.

The non irradiated water might reseal the hole, but the 5,000 degree particle will continue to melt the ice on its way to the ocean.

Pray for me. hug.gif

Your prayers have worked like crazy. Maybe one of these days I won't have any behavior issues.

Japanese monkeys' abnormal blood linked to Fukushima disaster – study

Wild monkeys in the Fukushima region of Japan have blood abnormalities linked to the radioactive fall-out from the 2011 nuclear power plant disaster, according to a new scientific study that may help increase the understanding of radiation on human health.

The Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscata) were found to have low white and red blood cell levels and low haemoglobin, which the researchers say could make them more prone to infectious diseases.

But critics of the study say the link between the abnormal blood tests and the radiation exposure of the monkeys remains unproven and that the radiation doses may have been too small to cause the effect.

The planned “Great Ice Wall” to contain Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant isn’t freezing

More than three years after the earthquake and tsunami devastated northeast Japan and left a major nuclear plant in Fukushima paralyzed, efforts to contain the nuclear disaster are still facing major hurdles as the area around it remains a ghost town. Last week, Tokyo Electric Power Co., better known as TEPCO, revealed that an ice wall that was designed to stem the flow of radioactive water seeping from the crippled reactors at the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear power plant isn’t freezing as fast as they hoped.

In the three months since construction began, temperatures in the ground around the barrier meant to contain the contaminated water in underground trenches have only fallen to around 15 degrees (59 degrees Fahrenheit) and TEPCO announced a new plan to accelerate the freezing process—dumping 10 tons of ice every day until the wall forms.
