In the last article, I compared the situation in Fukushima with what happened at Kyshtym in Russia in 1957, primarily focusing comparing what happened when some 80 tonnes of nuclear waste material exploded into a deadly cloud and killed thousands, with the 1700+ tonnes of spent Uranium/Plutonium fuel rods at Fukushima that are still in danger of going up in a radioactive cloud that will sweep around the planet. The resultant deaths from radiation poisoning from the potential Fukushima fuel rod explosion disaster could be astronomical.
We have been seeing over the last week, the criminal efforts of the Environmental Protection Agency in the United States to raise the threshold of the acceptable amount of radiation that people can safely be exposed to by in some cases by over 1,000 fold! To me that is not only outrageous, but down right criminal. NO level of radiation from fallout is acceptable and safe for humans.
To help back up my statement that no level of radiation is safe for humans, I want to turn to an article from Global Research, out of Canada, at www.globalresearch.ca, entitled: "Radioactivity In Food: There Is No Safe Level Of Radionuclide Exposure, Whether From Food, Water, Or Other Sources, Period", and the findings in this article are startling and very disturbing. Here is that article right here for you to view in its entirety:

Physicians For Social Responsibility
“There is no safe level of radionuclide exposure, whether from food, water or other sources. Period,” said Jeff Patterson, DO, immediate past president of Physicians for Social Responsibility. “Exposure to radionuclides, such as iodine-131 and cesium-137, increases the incidence of cancer. For this reason, every effort must be taken to minimize the radionuclide content in food and water.”
“Children are much more susceptible to the effects of radiation, and stand a much greater chance of developing cancer than adults,” said Dr. Andrew Kanter, president-elect of PSR’s Board. “So it is particularly dangerous when they consume radioactive food or water.”
“Reports indicate that the total radioactive releases from the Fukushima reactor have been relatively small so far. If this is the case, then the health effects to the overall population will be correspondingly small,” said Ira Helfand, MD, a member of the Board of Physicians for Social Responsibility. “But it is not true to say that it is "safe" to release this much radiation; some people will get cancer and die as a result.”
NTS Notes: I am in full agreement with the findings presented here in this Global Research report.
The fact is, readers, that all of the Government and Media BS about the non-dangers of the radiation from Fukushima is exactly that... Bull Crap!
But did we actually expect anything different? The nuclear power industry has powerful lobbies in all governments, and the makers of the reactors at Fukushima, General Electric, is a powerful organization in the United States, and even controls and owns several media outlets, including NBC, MSNBC, and CNBC... Therefore, of course the media talking heads and officials that have General Electric as their boss will continue to downplay the situation at Fukushima!
What we are seeing is still the potential for a catastrophe that the world has never seen in human history. I am not here to scare people, but to have people aware of the truth, to hope for the best, but to be fully prepared for the worse.
