Meiji Holdings Co., maker of Meiji Step infant powder (Meiji Step is...|
|11/4/2011 - The silence of governments and the world press about the radiation dangers from Fukushima is alarming to say the least. We have an open nuclear sore on the planet, a radioactive boil that continues to burst casting a toxic shadow on the people of Japan and a few other billion people who happen to live...|
|10/26/2011 - The 9.0+ mega earthquake and tsunami that rocked Japan back in March caused millions of tons of debris to wash into the Pacific Ocean.

|9/21/2011 - It resembles the plot line of a cheesy horror flick, but the idea that a new generation of vicious "mutant" dogs will one day spawn from puppies still living in and around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster zone is something that Japanese officials are taking very seriously. According to a recent...|
|9/13/2011 - Forget about the 2012 Mayan calendar, comet Elenin or the Rapture. The real threat to human civilization is far more mundane, and it's right in front of our noses. If Fukushima has taught us anything, it's that just one runaway meltdown of fissionable nuclear material can have wide-ranging and potentially...|
|9/1/2011 - (Natural News) There has been a lot of disinformation regarding the Fukushima Nuclear disaster.
