Dr Chris Busby is a brilliant and courageous researcher. In the month following the March 11, 2011 Fukushima disaster he examined air filters from cars near Fukushima. He compared them to Chernobyl and calculated that Fukushima was 300 times worse than that previous disaster. He has recently calculated just how much radiation would be released if there were another typhoon or earthquake and in a worst case scenario all of the radiation from the spent fuel pools were released at one time. I do not question his numbers. I just disagree with his conclusions. But it is vital that we start a dialogue on why I disagree with a man I admire so much.
The following is from Dr Busby’s most recent article How bad could Fukushima get? – 18th November 2013.
Analysed in terms of the volatile radio-elements Caesium137 and Strontium 90, the inventory of radioactivity in the fuel ponds and the damaged reactors is 60% of the radioactivity injected into the biosphere by weapons testing. The Fukushima sites now contain 80 times as much Caesium137 and Strontium 90 as were released in the first months of the emergency there. Fukushima contains 80 times as much Caesium137 and 260 times as much Strontium 90 as were ejected during the Chernobyl accident in 1986; it contains 10,000 times as much Caesium137 and Strontium 90 as were released by the Hiroshima bomb. If the worst happened at Fukushima Honshu (the north island) would be uninhabitable (some would say it already is). Doses to the public from Caesium 137 across Honshu would be 438 times higher than European law would allow. Other radio-elements would be present and would increase the exposure.
There is no cause for complacency about the effects in more distant regions; the very low concentrations of I-131 measured in California in 2011 caused a significant increase in hyperthyroidism in infants in California. Heritable genetic effects will follow and the general increase in cancer will continue, but the accident that could happen in Fukushima would not threaten mass extinction.
My main argument is that Americans in 2013 have a heavier Body Burden than the people who were living in 1963 when the Test Ban Treaty went into effect.
The radiation released from a second Fukushima event would occur after the US and some of its allies have used Depleted Uranium weapons in Iraq and Afghanistan and in practice firing ranges all over the world.
In 1963 nuclear reactors were fewer in number and posed less of a risk to human health. Today there are 430 nuclear reactors but most of these are aging. In a recent interview Dr Busby was asked what percent of these were leaking. The man asking the question cited his research into government reports and concluded that 91% of the nuclear reactors were leaking. He said, “Things were so bad that the government does not even set off alarms because they frighten the public.” To be fair he did cite a Mainstream (Controlled Propaganda source) that claimed fewer than 80% were actually leaking. Dr Busby responded by saying 100% of them are leaking.
Dr Busby is British so he might not be aware of the radiation risk posed from fracking to Americans. Fracking is a new word made from compounding hydraulic and fracturing. The following definition is from an online definition at Investopedia: Fracking refers to the procedure of creating fractures in rocks and rock formations by injecting fluid into cracks to force them further open. The larger fissures allow more oil and gas to flow out of the formation and into the wellbore, from where it can be extracted.
The problem with fracking apart from the poisoning of American drinking water with dangerous chemicals and acid is that some operators have been pumping radioactive waste into fracking sites. All of this radiation must be added to the burden of the human body.
I would also like to cite other differences in human health between 1963 and 2013 because I base my conclusions on what has been called the total body burden. In 1963 autism, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) were unknown because the modern vaccine manufacturing process in America was hijacked by people on doing serious bodily harm to our children.
I have spoken before of Lee Harvey Oswald and Judyth Vary Baker. Baker was a child prodigy who crashed a cancer conference near her home in Florida. Security guards were about to toss her out into the street when a researcher heard and understood what she had said. In her high school lab she was inducing cancers better and faster in mice than the federal government was doing with their millions of dollars. The federal government hired her but first they destroyed all traces of her high school experiments. She was sent to New Orleans to work in a clandestine operation at the Riley Coffee Company run by a retired FBI agent. Lee Harvey Oswald was assigned to protect her and to act as her liaison with Dr Mary Sherman who subsequently died under mysterious circumstances. Baker was sending the cancers she produced over to Dr Sherman. The polio vaccines deliberately exposed more than 100,000,000 Americans to cancer viruses from monkeys and mice.
Baker was using the Body Burden concept to induce cancer. She used cigarette smoke to lower resistance to her cancer induction techniques. She probably did not hear of the Navajo uranium miners until much later. The Navajo Indian reservation in Arizona and New Mexico is huge. 27,413 sq miles (71,000 km²) to be specific. They had a uranium mine. A study of the miners found that radiation from the mine worked synergistically with tobacco smoke to kill off the smokers at much higher rates than everyone else.
A lesson from the Navajo for those of us in the post Fukushima world is to give up smoking.
There are other body burdens deliberately inflicted upon us. Children exposed to radioactive iodine in the 1950s in America still had some iodine in their diets even if it was just iodized salt. Iodine has since been removed as a food additive. Fluoride was added to the water by Joe Stalin to control prisoners. Fluoride had been advertized in 1910 in America along with Bromide as miracle cures that could help you calm down unruly teenagers. Fluoride was added to America’s water supply thanks to the efforts of Edward Bernays, Sigmund Freud’s nephew. Bromide was added to food. They are both in the same chemical family as iodine which you remember was taken out of the American food supply. This by design greatly added to the body burden of Americans. Iodine deficiency combined with Fluoride and Bromide poisoning greatly increased Thyroid problems and made America the second fattest nation on earth. It also lowered IQs. And it greatly increased bone and breast cancers. This is well known to the FDA and the EPA but they do not care. They want to kill Americans.
Bisphenol A is an estrogen mimicker and is known to cause cancer and weight gain. The FDA refused to allow a well known soup manufacturer to advertise that they did not line their cans with the plastic Bisphenol A. The government hates Americans so much that they do not want us to have the ability to avoid estrogen mimickers known to cause obesity and cancer.
The federal government recently cut food stamp assistance. They could have banned MSG and Aspartame to balance out this cut. MSG makes people eat more. One researcher said 7% more. Aspartame makes people crave carbohydrates. These chemically induced cravings are in junk foods and not in fresh fruits and vegetables. MSG is not required to be on US food labels. There is pressure from the food industry to put Aspartame in food but not on the label.
GMO food causes cancers in lab mice. It also makes them sterile runts killing most of them off in the third generation. By their 20th birthday 10% of all American teenagers have liver diseases that previously were not seen in adults under 65.
These are the people who will suffer the body burden of a potential second Fukushima event. They are lot sicker than the Americans who lived in the 1950s. They are less likely to survive than their ancestors would have.
My other point is that these body burdens will not be equally distributed. I am an educated person. I can go online and see radiation in rain and snowfall is concentrated in areas with high humidity near oceans and lakes. Places like Washington state or the areas near the Great Lakes have the highest levels of radiation. I have seen videos of cars contaminated from rainfall in St Louis. I have read warnings to check radiation levels in the rain before you go out. I know better than to drink milk from cows in radioactive fallout areas. I sent a list of ten foods to eat to protect yourself from radiation to some friends. But do all people know that?
The poor in America drink milk and eat GMO food. The uneducated are still eating fish from the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. The federal government has raised their standards 20 fold and more as to what is a safe radiation exposure. The American government has said that 1,200 Becquerels of radiation per kilogram is safe to eat. The Canadian government says 1,100 is safe. But the European Union says anything above 500 is unfit for human consumption. (A Becquerel is one atomic disintegration per second.) So if you test beef in Europe and see it is too toxic for a Frenchman, you can always send it to North America.
The rich will soon be getting their food from greenhouses and filtering their water. They probably already stopped drinking milk and eating GMO food. And hopefully everyone will stop smoking. Some can relocate from the Pacific coast or Great Lakes or stop drinking water from the Rocky Mountains.
But the burdens of Fukushima will fall disproportionately on the poor.
While I have your attention, I would like to cite 13 more potential Fukushimas here in America that could end human life in the northern Hemisphere.
America has 2 nuclear power plants near active earthquake fault zones in California. If you have never experienced an earthquake, please consider this: In the 1906 San Francisco quake a road 80 miles from the epicenter was thrown 20 feet. An 8.35 earthquake has as much energy as two 25 megaton Hydrogen bombs. The greatest threat to America comes from the New Madrid fault zone which has 11 nuclear rectors in the vicinity. The 4 New Madrid earthquakes of 1811-1812 were so powerful that they reversed the flow of the Mississippi river and rang church bells in Boston more than 1,200 miles (1,930 km) away. The US has more than 300,000 miles (482,803 Km) of natural gas pipelines and 150,000 miles (241,402 Km) of crude oil and gasoline pipelines. The New Madrid fault line is in the center of America and is near most oil and natural gas sources. A series of New Madrid quakes would cause several nuclear reactor meltdowns and cut a majority of Americans off from electricity, gasoline and natural gas for a period of time. This could lead to an extinction level event as America loses its ability to cool its nuclear power plants. If the electric grid goes down, you will lose the battery power needed to cool the plant in 4 to 8 hours. So how do you cool those reactors after losing both electricity and gasoline for those generators?

Good Morning I am not going to dance around as to the above story but say a few things as to FUKUSHIMA. If people go to enenews.com it talks about Fukushima since 3-11 and other stories. I have read every day the updates in japan. Since day one the Government and TEPCO in Japan has lied to the people covered up health issues and still to this day there is no real information coming from Japan,in fact they have sanitized all information within Japan, while Radiation spreds world wide.Experts are trying to soft what information they have,since 3-11,and fish and other ocean dwelling animals have been radiated. Plumes of radiation spread all over the planet since the explosions,people working on site are dying along with the people,in Areas outside the danger zones. Markww
So to sum all this up in a few words is, WE ARE FUKED!
