Because of Fukushima, “ experts say ocean currents are carrying the radioactive water to the West Coast.”
Reports state that the San Francisco Bay area, among other areas on the West Coast, is threatened heavily by the radioactive fallout from Fukushima.
In fact, the entire west coast of America has been reporting record levels of radiation in the sea life and water samples.
From Southern California, to Oregon and up to British Columbia experts in the fields of nuclear science, oceanography, entomology and independent researchers are studying the effects of this massive dose of radiation on the public’s health.
All radioactive contamination is a direct result of Iodine 131. This is only used in nuclear reactors and not found in nature. Cesium, strontium, plutonium and uranium have also been found in record setting levels all along the west coast.
In May 2011, the Norsk Institute’s online site, which was monitoring worldwide radioactive contamination across the globe. They compiled a list of toxins that were introduced by the Fukushima plume.
Here is a short list of the half-life of five of the radioactive isotopes in the air, food and water that are poisoning us and children:
• Cesium 137: 30 years
• Plutonium 239: 24,000 years
• Strontium 90: 29 years [mimics calcium in the body]
• Uranium 235: 700-million years
• Iodine 131: 8 days [absorbed into the thyroid and gives heavy radiation dose
Earlier this month, China “ suspended imports of shellfish from the west coast of the United States [because] recent shipments of geoduck clams from Northwest waters were found by its own government inspectors to have high levels of arsenic and a toxin that causes paralytic shellfish poisoning.”
Denis Campbell, chief editor of UK Progressive Magazine, claims that the Fukushima radioactive plume “lost some of its potency” before it first hit the shores of California.
Campbell said that if anyone got close enough to test the nuclear reactors at Fukushima, their bodies “would literally vaporize” so no one knows how strong and effective the radioactive elements are.
Japanese media reported that a special secret bill was passed through the state that “would impose hard penalties on those who leak classified government information”; specifically regarding the devastation and actual state of Fukushima that has not been released to the public.
Remaining vague, “bill does not clearly show the scope of information that could be classified as special state secrets, and the legislative and judicial branches cannot check classified government information. Moreover, a decision on rules on releasing declassified information will be made sometime later.”
Indeed, criminal charges would be applied to Japanese reporters who even published works on Fukushima.
It is clear that this law is purposed “to muzzle the press, shut up whistleblowers, and ensure that the nuclear disaster at Fukushima ceases to be an embarrassment.”
Back in August, the Nuclear Regulatory Authority in Japan (NRAJ) “ warned . . . that the build-up of contaminated groundwater at the plant is on the verge of tipping out of control and that its operator, Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO), lacked a sense of crises about the looming damage to the Pacific.”
In response, TEPCO released 300 tons of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean daily while muttering about how radioactive water may have been leaking into the Pacific the entire time.
Shockingly, TEPCO has admitted that they are unclear as to whether or not radioactive water was released into the ocean after the devastation at the Fukushima.
Leaks from the source has been spreading, although they states that radiation levels taken from samples of sea water near the mouth of the harbor is showing low detectable levels.
Workers that have assisted in the clean-up have come down with thyroid cancer, which has been kept out of the media by TEPCO. This proves that the risk to the area has surpassed its threshold of 10 times what was originally reported.
By summations, TEPCO said that the “cumulative leak of 20 trillion to 40 trillion Becquerel of radioactive tritium” has made its way into the Pacific Ocean sin March of 2011.
