Nuclear meltdown

(NaturalNews) Media reports are now saying that the possible nuclear plant meltdown at the Fukushima power plant in Japan has been narrowly averted. CSMonitor.com is reporting that the core containment structure holding the plant's fuel rods was not damaged in the explosion that took place there yesterday (http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Asia-Pacific/...). This statement, however, conflicts with other news reports that claim the core was "partially damaged" and some radiation had begun to leak (http://www.cnn.com/2011/WORLD/asiapcf/03/12/...).

Here at NaturalNews, we await final word that will hopefully confirm the meltdown is no longer a possibility. Even if the meltdown has been averted (which still remains to be confirmed), the Fukushima incident already ranks as the third worst nuclear power plant accident in the history of human civilization. The other two, of course, are the Three Mile Island incident in the United States in 1979, and the far worse Chernobyl meltdown in present-day Ukraine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chernobyl_disas...).

That Japan could even be faced with the very real possibility of a total nuclear plant containment meltdown is a horrifying thought, as it could have unleashed a deadly radioactive cloud that potentially could have killed or harmed tens of millions of Japanese citizens. It also would have rendered a huge portion of Japan's coast line uninhabitable for hundreds of years while simultaneously destroying a very large percentage of Japan's power capacity that feeds Tokyo and surrounding cities.

This near-disaster is a stark reminder of the importance of emergency preparedness for people everywhere. Just days ago, I announced here on NaturalNews that we would be focusing more on emergency preparedness and self-reliance stories throughout 2011 and 2012. Our upcoming financial preparedness event running next Sunday (March 20) sold out in a matter of days. From observing what's going on around the world, people are coming to understand that the world is an unpredictable place and disasters can strike at any moment, without warning.

In this case, the potential disaster was a "natural" disaster combined with a man-made disaster waiting to happen (nuclear fuel rods). Many coming disasters are entirely man-made: The coming global debt collapse, the planetary extinction event due to the mass chemical pollution of the planet, the destruction of natural habitat and so on. Read my list of the top 12 unsustainable things happening right now on our planet that must collapse in the coming years: https://www.naturalnews.com/031669_life_on_ea...

The message from Tokyo today is quite clear: Prepare for the unknown. Be smart by being ready to cope with whatever the world throws at you. Because between Mother Nature and mankind's own actions, there will be no shortage of unexpected events in the years ahead.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
