(NaturalNews) In the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear meltdown catastrophe, plutonium has now been found in soil samples taken from five locations around Fukushima. Yes, plutonium. But here's the real whopper: The media is reporting "Officials insist that the plutonium poses no threat to humans." (http://news.xinhuanet.com/english2010/video/...)

Seriously. I never thought I'd read in the press that "plutonium poses no threat to humans," but then again, there's practically nothing in the news these days that isn't distorted in order to either misinform or de-educate the masses.

Along similar lines, the TSA today applauded the publication of a new study in a conventional medical journal which claims that airport naked body scans are also perfectly safe for you (just like plutonium, eh?) (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-03-28/air...).

On both the TSA's naked body scanners as well as nuclear meltdowns, the message from the government is exactly the same: Don't worry, what's a little fallout anyway? It's all good for ya!

Oh yeah, and mammograms are good for you, too. So is chemotherapy, and vaccines, and mercury fillings and fluoride in the water. Why not just dispose of all the radioactive water from Fukushima by dumping it into the public water supply and announcing it "prevents cavities?" (Don't repeat this too loudly, or some bureaucrat might actually overhear you and run with this idea...)

Latest status of the six reactors

• Reactor No. 1: Cooling systems still not functional. Reactor core damaged. Lights are on inside the building.

• Reactor No. 2: High radiation. Partial core meltdown admitted. Containment vessel likely damaged by the explosion.

• Reactor No. 3: Deadly MOX fuel. Very high radiation detected in cooling water. Partial core meltdown admitted. Cooling pumps are not working and radiation is too high to allow workers to fix them. Building severely damaged by explosion. Cooling pool may also be damaged.

• Reactor No. 4: Cooling water levels are low and efforts are being made to replenish the water levels.

• Reactor No. 5: Cooling pumps are working, the situation appears stable. This reactor was offline when the tsunami hit.

• Reactor No. 6: Appears to be safely under control. Cooling pumps are operating. This reactor was offline when the tsunami hit.

Meltdown events now confirmed

• A partial meltdown is now confirmed to have occurred at Reactor No. 2, where Chief cabinet secretary Yukio Edano now admits the highly radioactive water present in the plant had to have come into contact with a partially melted fuel core. (http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/world/p...)

• A similar meltdown almost certainly must have occurred in Reactor No. 3 where highly radioactive water is collecting in the basement of the power plant. "We're trying to prevent a deterioration of the situation," said Prime Minister Naoto Kan (http://www.businessweek.com/news/2011-03-28/...).

• The source of radioactive water in reactors 2 and 3 remains a mystery. Plant engineers can't figure out exactly where it's coming from, and at the same time, the very high levels of radiation in the water make it too dangerous for people to walk through it. (http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/2011/0328/Japan...)

• MSNBC has gone into total spin mode with its "happy happy" propaganda news about how safe and "natural" nuclear power will now become. In a puff piece entitled "New nuclear plants designed to be safest ever," MSNBC.com actually states, "The key is humility. The next generation of plants must be built to work with nature -- and human nature -- rather than against them. They must be safe by design, so that even if every possible thing goes wrong, the outcome will stop short of disaster." (http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/42258191/ns/bu...) That's a whole lot of wishful thinking, of course, but it's no surprise to hear it from a news organization that's largely owned by none other than General Electric, the manufacturer of the Fukushima power plant. Anyone who thinks they can get honest reporting on nuclear power from MSNBC is suffering from serious self delusion.

• Three reactors remain badly damaged, prompting BusinessWeek to publish this quote from UCS: "The cores of three reactors are still badly damaged and it's not clear that cooling can be restored to all the reactors, Edwin Lyman, a researcher at the Washington, D.C.-based Union of Concerned Scientists said." (http://www.businessweek.com/news/2011-03-28/...)

• The plan to restart the cooling pumps that would circulate water through the water pools that cool the spent fuel rods has turned out to be all but impossible to pursue. NISA spokesman Hidehiko Nishiyama said in an article on The Australian, "The problem is that right now nobody can reach the turbine houses where key electrical work must be done. There is a possibility we may have to give up on that plan." (http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/world/p...)
