As each hour passes Japan the world comes closer to reading news of one of the largest nuclear stations in the world going out of control creating a permanent hot spot on our planet that will create nightmares for ages to come. It is already happening and we are within a hairs length of incalculable suffering and harm to human civilization.
It is the inability to see the effects of chronic, low level toxicities on human health that has been, and remains, our greatest failing as intelligent beings. - Dr. Boyd Haley
Finally the world is going to have to wake up to what Dr. Boyd Haley said many years ago. His warning to the world's scientists and doctors has mostly gone unnoticed meaning we are left with a government, medical officials and doctors who have no idea of the real dangers people and children are facing as an entire nuclear plant with six reactors is abandoned and goes dangerously out of control. "Will the radiation spread?" asks one headline.
Radiation always spreads is the answer, it is in its very nature to do so. According to the NY Times a United Nations forecast of the possible movement of the radioactive plume coming from crippled Japanese reactors shows it churning across the Pacific, and touching the Aleutian Islands on Thursday before hitting Southern California late Friday.
"Increasingly desperate" expresses the situation as humanity faces its darkest side -- the use of nuclear energy and other toxic materials. "This is a slow-moving nightmare," said Dr. Thomas Neff, a physicist and uranium-industry analyst at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Nuclear safety officials in France said they were "pessimistic" about whether engineers could prevent a meltdown at the Fukushima power plant after a pool containing spent fuel rods overheated and boiled dry. Last night radiation levels were "extremely high" in the stricken building, which was breached by an earlier explosion, meaning that radiation could now escape into the atmosphere.
Radioactive materials spewed into the air by Japan's earthquake- crippled nuclear plant may contaminate food and water resources, with children and unborn babies most at risk of possibly developing cancer.
This is Japan's and the world's worst nuclear nightmare -- an atomic catastrophe of undefined and potentially unlimited scope but strangely there hasn't been much talk of the risks surrounding the stricken reactor from public officials in Japan. People and nations much further away from the out-of-control, extraordinarily large nuclear plant with multiple reactors and spent rod pools seem more alarmed then Japanese officials who obviously don't want to impose panic upon the public.
The future of civilization on our planet is already being altered by this event in progress. Massive changes are being set into motion on financial markets and people around the world are bracing themselves for the worst. Japan's ongoing nuclear emergency was compared to an "apocalypse" by the European Union's energy commissioner Tuesday night as dangerous levels of radiation were detected around the disintegrating power plant after a fourth explosion. And now American officials are telling their citizens to get out and other countries are doing the same.
The chairman of the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission gave a far bleaker appraisal on Wednesday of the threat posed by Japan's nuclear crisis than the Japanese government had offered. Foreign nuclear experts, the Japanese press and an increasingly angry and rattled Japanese public are frustrated by government and power company officials' failure to communicate clearly and promptly about the nuclear crisis. Pointing to conflicting reports, ambiguous language and a constant refusal to confirm the most basic facts, they suspect officials of withholding or fudging crucial information about the risks posed by the ravaged Daiichi plant.
You want to know how bad and risky the situation is today? You need look no further than Arnie Gundersen, a 29-year veteran of the nuclear industry who has worked on reactors similar to the Daiichi plant and is now chief engineer at Fairewinds Associates, Inc. She warned that dropping water on the spent fuel pool could make matters worse saying, "It's a bad idea to drop water onto the fuel racks. You could get an inadvertent criticality. That means you could have a nuclear reaction, similar to that in a reactor core, in the fuel pool. There is more radiation in the spent fuel pool -- which is about ten stories in the air -- than in the reactor core." Gundersen notes that used rods contain more dangerous radioactive materials than new rods, including elements cesium, strontium and plutonium.
It seems that the Japanese government and the mainstream media have both been doing their best to downplay this crisis. This time there is going to be all hell to pay if the truth is not reported correctly. There is good reason to doubt that politicians, corporations or the media even know how to report the truth and that is profoundly sad now that we need the truth more than anything else. The legacy of scandals and cover-ups in Japan's nuclear power industry has strained its credibility with the public. That mistrust is escalating quickly with the crisis at the Fukushima Dai-Ichi plant. The vagueness and scarcity of details offered by the government and power officials is fueling public anger and frustration but that's nothing new for these kinds of people and industries.
Jacqueline Williams, a research professor in the department of radiation oncology at the University of Rochester in New York, said high levels of radiation -- potentially like those experienced by workers at the nuclear complex -- can be lethal because "radiation disrupts your cells and you die." Death by radiation poisoning is the worst kind of death -- a slow, suffering breakdown of cellular function at every level. It is not something anyone wants to go through. The real heroes of today are the men working feverishly around the reactors and spent fuel pools to keep everything as much under control as possible, but their efforts, in the end, might be useless.
Dr. Michio Kaju, one of the most intelligent physicists on the planet, is already calling for the Chernobyl option and that would be a massive effort to drop sand and concrete on top of all the reactors and spent rod pools in an attempt to bury the radiation as they did in Russia. Japan's nuclear crisis is veering out of control and Kaju is indicating that the Japanese authorities are behind the curve in dealing with it. Events appear to be racing ahead of Japanese expectations. The situation in Japan keeps getting worse and perhaps has already reached the point of no return (the point where we have uncontrolled releases of radiation due to breach of containment).
On Sunday when I first released this protocol, I said that it was too early to call everyone in North America to prepare for a radiation cloud streaming down radioactive particles from the accident in Japan. According to the media and government, America is not at risk due to radioactive fallout from the recent Japanese nuclear accidents and that is still officially the case. Now only four days later they seem to be changing their minds on this.
It is all too easy for health and medical officials to declare dangerous things safe when they are not. If there was ever a time to be preparing for worst-case scenarios, now is the time. The evolving protocol you will find in this presentation is effective for radiation as well as chemical and heavy metal contamination. Since we all live on a toxic planet that is getting more toxic each year everyone who wants to survive the increasing challenges on our bodies should take note and start processes of detoxification and chelation of heavy metals and radioactive particles.
What we are dealing with is a world of professionals from doctors to medical and health officials and of course industry leaders who believe, or at least say they believe, that DANGEROUS THINGS AND SUBSTANCES are safe when they in fact are not. To these professionals everything is safe -- CAT scans are safe, injecting mercury in babies is safe, implanting mercury inches from the brain in the form of dental amalgam is safe, treating cancer with chemicals and radiation that cause cancer is perfectly alright and living nextdoor to nuclear plants or downwind of coal-fired boilers and electrical plants is safe.
One of the greatest alarm calls in human history has gone unnoticed for years and as a result, the previously low levels of toxicities are moving higher leading to a general contamination and weakening of the public. As each toxic catastrophe has hit this past year -- vast fires in Russia, the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster, another one in China, continued output of unimaginable tonnages of heavy metals and chemicals by industry, and now this Japanese super disaster -- the world gets darker and more dangerous with more people getting sick and dying.
Even the Wall Street Journal published a few years ago that, "A growing body of animal research suggests to some scientists that even minute traces of some chemicals, always assumed to be biologically insignificant, can affect such processes as gene activation and the brain development of newborns. An especially striking finding: It appears that some substances may have effects at the very lowest exposures that are absent at higher levels. Some scientists, many of them in industry, dismiss such concerns. But the new science of low-dose exposure is challenging centuries of accepted wisdom about toxic substances and rattling the foundation of environmental law." These scientists, many doctors, dentists and health officials are the ones who should be dismissed and charged for fraudulent thinking that puts the public and their patients at risk.
There is no safe level of mercury, and no one has actually shown that there is a safe level. - Dr. Lars Friberg, Chief adviser to the WHO on mercury safety
And there is no safe level of radiation, which means that even your dental x-rays put you and your children in increased danger of cancer. Dr. J. Curtis Pendergrass and Dr. Boyd Haley, who did experiments at Kentucky University, stated, "Pure thimerosal was toxic at the low nanomolar level -- an extremely low concentration, about 10,000 times less than the thimerosal concentration found in most vaccines that contain this mercury based injection." Of course medical officials interpret this to mean it's safe. This is the backdrop of what is happening with the interpretation of radiation dangers. We will ALWAYS get media communications that infer that the danger is much less than it is.
It is an especially important moment for parents around the world to sit up and take notice of what they will need to do to protect their children against the toxicities that are threatening them from many sources.
Special Note:Greg Hunter says, "Japan is a stark reminder of how fast a modern technologically advanced society can be brought to its knees by an unforeseen calamity." In his essay he reminds us that governments are broke and have to borrow money for almost everything they do and that is especially the case in Japan and the United States today. And because of this we will see governments collapse as their currencies collapse and this is exactly the wrong time for this to be happening. This disaster is not the first and certainly will not be the last mega disaster to confront our government's diminishing ability to cope. No wonder the American and Russian governments are building underground shelters at an increasingly frantic and expensive pace.
Chris Martenson writes, "Major world-changing events are now underway and that your personal preparations for an uncertain future should either be completed or take on a new sense of urgency. For decades, the world has been running its own nuclear-style reaction, only in the currency and debt markets, where exponentially-accelerating piles of debt and money have spun about faster and faster in a gigantic, complex, coordinated reaction, the core of which is, and always has been, the United States. At the very center of this ungainly money reactor is the main fuel pile itself, the US Treasury market. With any interruption to smooth flow of money through this pile, it will immediately become unstable. The problem with these fast-moving situations is that everything shifts from beneath your feet and events fundamentally change so quickly that you do not have time to adjust properly before the next insult arrives. Events have now sped up to the point that we cannot predict what will happen next. At this point a systemic banking crisis, complete political upheaval in one or more countries, a currency crisis, or a debt crisis are all within the realm of the possible."
