Cancer Trends Over Time, Rocketing Upward Coincident With Nuclear Technology

Cancer trends over time Anecdotal evidence implies that in 1900 only 3% to 6% of people got cancer. Better record keeping starting around 1945 shows that cancer deaths have gone up 500%. And since we are more successful at treating cancer, the mean the rate of cancer has gone up more than 500%, maybe 700%. You can download this document. Funny how cancer started rocketing up in the same year that nuclear bombs were dropped.

Low Quality Troll Invades ENENEWS

The latest paid troll attack comes from MF or Moe Foe.

Spewing hatred, swearing all the time, ripping people a new one.    This self professed seasoned radiation expert apparently doesn't even have a workstation computer or laptop, he just does it all on a phone.    

hmmmm......that doesn't seem quite right.   

The troll is harping on Conca's latest crime against humanity, hoping to increase radiation by 100 to 200 TIMES (not percent) in terms of nuke plant releases.      He left this picture at Forbe's Conca post.  

He laughs at experiments in which sick people were unwittingly given doses of plutonium to "see what happens", and he exclaims "they didn't die instantly!" therefore Plutonium is not as bad as other things.     The arrogance, the pyschopathy.    

At least the last dedicated troll attack was a, LOL, "high quality troll".    Eventually they all lose their luster.

And some trolls just got to troll away.

Documentary on Aging Nukes

Contributed by Cisco

For the story of how we got to this point with nuclear power generation, how the industry operates, and the real story of about its safety.

"The series had a profound impact. The stories ran on more than 85 front pages, played prominently on leading websites, and generated thousands of social networking shares and tweets. It also set off a raft of newspaper editorials and a few government investigations. The series also drew praise from many of the scientists and engineers who understand the issues best."

http://www.ap.org/company/awards/aging-nukes

stock…you should have a link on your site to this remarkable piece of investigative reporting. A must read for the uninitiated and a good reread for the rest of us.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Examples abound. When valves leaked, more leakage was allowed — up to 20 times the original limit. When rampant cracking caused radioactive leaks from steam generator tubing, an easier test of the tubes was devised, so plants could meet standards.

Failed cables. Busted seals. Broken nozzles, clogged screens, cracked concrete, dented containers, corroded metals and rusty underground pipes — all of these and thousands of other problems linked to aging were uncovered in the AP's yearlong investigation. And all of them could escalate dangers in the event of an accident.

Yet despite the many problems linked to aging, not a single official body in government or industry has studied the overall frequency and potential impact on safety of such breakdowns in recent years, even as the NRC has extended the licenses of dozens of

Industry and government officials defend their actions, and insist that no chances are being taken. But the AP investigation found that with billions of dollars and 19 percent of America's electricity supply at stake, a cozy relationship prevails between the industry and its regulator, the NRC.

Records show a recurring pattern: Reactor parts or systems fall out of compliance.......

If Possible, Control Your Food Environment, Produce it Yourself

I been 14 hours a day ramping up my own food production systems to supply ALL the food for my family and dogs. So far so good, looks great.

Multiple reasons:

  1. Cali drought means food cost way up
  2. Fed printing means food cost way up
  3. Radiation control of inputs
  4. GMO avoidance
  5. Money savings — if you buy at store, first you earn money, then pay taxes, then pay for food with the piddling amount left over, then pay sales taxes on the food.
  6. Better taste and quality
  7. Somewhat fun and rewarding
  8. One important step away from feeding the NWO insanity
  9. Ill post some pictures at Nukepro in a week or so
  10. Pesticide Avoidance
  11. Shit Hit the Fan Security

Gather knowledge, experience, and don't forget TOOLS and EQUIPMENT now.   When SHTF these will become very dear.  

Get a greenhouse to mitigate climate change  effects on your production

Back to WORK!

Nuke Visual Combat -- Bama Knows Nutting!

Whether you like Obama or not, I think it's hilarious.

The Radiation Still to go into WIPP can Contaminate the Entire Planet

I did some calculation to "bring it home" —just the amount of "low level" waste they want to still put into WIPP, is enough to, if spread evenly among all humans, animals, fish, plankton, plants of all sorts, to bring the entire world up to 70 Bq/lb.
And animals at 30 Bq/lb start having severe health problems


Note that even thought the Remote Handled Waste is only 4% of the waste by volume, it is 3/7th of the total radioactivity.

Per the former WIPP lab manager, James Conca, they have stuff in WIPP way hotter than anything at Hanford, 7 Curies per liter.   That is enough to bring 1,000,000,000 Costco size chickens up to 200 Bq/lb.    

Again, severe damage is done to animals at 30 Bq/lb.      You can't sell any animals over 100 Bq/lb as food even though they are being "diluted" by other food.  

——————————————————————-
I read a whole WIPP report, they are brutal to read. But amazing truths jump out at you. They pretend that WIPP is only for Transuranics (Plutonium and higher) but it is not, they are stashing a hundred different isotopes in there, including some old favorites like Cesium and Strontium!
In the report they state the future incoming radiation inventory, its 9.81E16 Bq, add 16 zeros.
If you take all of the living things on earth and calculate total mass and divide the Bq by that you get
70 Bq per lb. Into every living thing on earth
Just what is planned to go into WIPP is enought to contaminate every thing on earth to very dangerous levels.

Total bio mass on earth
700 Billion Tons
2000 lbs per ton
1400000 Billion pounds
1,400,000,000,000,000 pounds of biomass on earth
 
Total Curies of ONLY the remote handled waste intended for WIPP
1.15E+06 RH Activity Only
3.70E+10 bq per Curie
4.26E+16 Bq for Remote Handled Only to enter WIPP in the future
30 Bq per Lb of every living thing on earth (for only the RH Remote Handled Waste)

Total Curies to enter WIPP in future, Remote Handled and Contact Handled
2.65E+06 RH and CH Activity
3.70E+10 bq per Curie
9.81E+16 Bq for RH and CH WIPP in the future
70 Bq per Lb of every living thing on earth  (for the remote and contact handled)

Damage Documented from low dose 1mSv and Background Radiation Sources

The absence of the WHO (UN World Health Organization) is remarkable in these statements. Especially since human health is their primary responsibility.

The WHO did issue a report regarding the negative health effects:

Increased cancer risks for affected children in the region between 4% (solid cancers), 7% for leukemia, 70% for thyroid cancers.

That organizations such as IAEA & UNSCEAR, whose members have substantial interest in more nuclear declare that Fukushima doesn’t harm human health, says little.

Research after Chernobyl clearly showed that extra levels of only 1mSv/year harm next generations already substantial:

http://tchie.uni.opole.pl/ecoproc10a/ScherbVoigt_PECO10_1.pdf

Here is one example from that report from Chernobyl using a vast amount of data over a long period of time.  CLP is Cleft Lip.    

In Bavaria, from October 1986 to December 1990, the CLP frequency increased by 9.5% (p = 0.10) relative to the trend as computed from the remaining years. The association of CLP rates with fallout on a district level is reflected by a significant relative risk (RR) per kBq/m 2 of RR=1.008 (p = 0.03). A synoptic analysis of the Bavarian data and the GDR data restricted to the overlapping time window from 1984 to 1989 discloses a simultaneous significant jump of the CLP prevalence by 8.6% (p = 0.02) after 1986. The presumption of a long-term increase of CLP after exposure to Chernobyl fallout is corroborated by the analysis of the Bavarian congenital malformation data [13].

Dandelions, an Excellent Health Aid, Liver Aid, Heavy Metal Detox--Look at this huge field of Dandelions!

UPDATE: (PS Dandelions are a great Mercury and Radioactive Heavy Metal Chelator)
We had an awesome meal last night based on Dandelions.    We spent around 10 minutes picking the best of the best leaves.

Miso Soup --- Fantastic!    No bitterness, and a mild tanginess, this ain't your grandma's Miso Soup, or maybe it is.

Dandelion Tempura --- fantastic, fried with a little flour, taste great with or without salt.    We also fried some complete plant, leaves and flower, and those were even better.    We did not use any root.

Butter fried Dandelion, was still pretty bitter, but the dogs loved it.

Fresh leaf, just washed, too bitter to be enjoyable, but this is late in  the season, the younger leaves do make good salad accompaniments. 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As I surveyed thousands of dandelions in my front yard, I thought a little research would be good.    I had heard they are good to eat, and make tea from.

Instead, I find that perhaps they are an incredibly convenient way to help remove heavy metals, and esp. radioactive heavy metals from the body, without going to the fairly dangerous DMSA and EDTA chelation therapies.  Dandelions are also directly beneficial to the liver.

Don't curse those dandelions!  Instead, use them as a nice Spring Detox!

According to the USDA Bulletin #8, "Composition of Foods" (Haytowitz and Matthews 1984), dandelions rank in the top 4 green vegetables in overall nutritional value

Do your own Google search.    You might be amazed.

Does the Average Person Need to Worry About Genetic Damage and Fallout from Fukushima

The Answer is YES

This is from ENENEWS.  Its an example of the superior work that they do in bringing truth to the forefront, whilst so many other organization profit from covering up the truth, or bending the truth to their own twisted purposes.

Hi ftlt, regarding your points about the time frame for genetic changes and oceanic transport of Fukushima radionuclides:
1) "There is time needed to cause genetic changes"
>> It appears the scientists conclude the genetic changes took place "suddenly" after something "virtually unheard of" in that part of the world appeared in 2011 and then retreated. From the SF Chronicle article: "a species of phytoplankton virtually unheard of in this part of the world… Its modus operandi… is to suddenly appear… then retreat into tiny invasion-of-the-body-snatcher-type pods until ocean conditions are ripe for another rampage."
2) "Would the ocean current have had time to impact California coast"
>> In 2011, the California coast was impacted by fallout transported through the air and then the subsequent run-off, not contamination transported by ocean currents.

Alaska Radiation Increased from Fukushima the Same Amount as a Direct Nuclear Bomb Test on Alaska


The Alaska nuclide test report Stock pointed out is very informative, and I urge people to read the whole thing, and to find out more about the monitoring that has been being done there since 1965. Amchitka was the site of several underground nuclear tests; the neighboring island of Adak is used as a “control” to which nuclide levels can be compared.
More info here:
http://www.lm.doe.gov/Amchitka/Sites.aspx
Report link:
http://www.lm.doe.gov/Amchitka/S08833_Biological_Monitoring.pdf
Brief fact sheet:
http://www.lm.doe.gov/Amchitka/AmchitkaBioResults.pdf
The 2011 monitoring season came 3 months after the start of the Fukushima disaster. As the report notes (section 9.0):

“The results imply that Dolly Varden, rockweed, and to a lesser extent, Irish lord appear to contain a significant cesium isotope signature from Fukushima Dai-ichi. ……

… Observations of Fukushima-derived fallout impacting on this region are supported by findings of elevated levels of 134Cs (and 137Cs) in lichen and soil collected from both the Adak and Amchitka regions.”

So there’s no doubt that Fukushima nuclides made it to the Aleutians, and yes, they also made it to CA and elsewhere. The important question is “In what concentrations?” And, “How can we find out how much we got, and where it is?” The Amchitka tests focus on lichen because it’s one of the greatest biological concentrators of Cs. The levels in lichen are regularly hundreds or thousands of times higher than what’s found in the soil beneath them. Amazing creatures, and somewhat like mushrooms in this regard. In arctic regions, species like reindeer feed on the lichen, which contributes to high contamination levels in their flesh which persists for decades. It’s worth pointing out, however, that caribou in northern Canada, for instance, show eye-openingly high levels of internal contamination from natural radionuclides as well, particularly Po210, and people who have relied on them as a food source for centuries had high internal contamination themselves even before the nuclear era because of it.

They tested fish, seaweed, and other marine species caught off Amchitka and Adak for Cs137, Am241, U234, 235, and 238, and Pu239 and 240at the same time, and came up with less than 1 Bq/kg of Cs in the highest sample, which was mussels. Table 15 shows that samples from the Irish Sea are much higher, up to around 11 Bq/kg. All this is just for context
.
I agree that there are good reasons to do more monitoring right about now, and not wait until 2016. And no good reason not to do more testing in CA as well.

Anyway, we’ve established that Fukushima contamination was clearly detectable in Alaskan lichen in the sumer of 2011. But how did that compare to before the Fukushima disaster? A look at table 40 (it’s posted on the website Stock linked to) gives a very good idea:

In table 40: Cs137 in lichen

1970-71 Clam lake range 8000-27000 pCi/kg (300-1000 Bq/kg) (stock --after three massive atomic bombs were set off on the island)
1971-79 Clam lake range 1500-67000 pCi/kg (55-2479 Bq/kg) (stock --after the three atomic bombs were set off on this island, the radiation in lichens tripled after the first initial dosing, and then lasted for a decade)

1997 Amchitka range 64-74 pCi/kg (2.3-2.7 Bq/kg)
2011 Amchitka range 1890-7120 pCi/kg (70-263 Bq/kg) (stock--after Fukushima)

STOCK--So Fukushima, 2000 miles away caused a radiation level about 1/4 of what three direct atomic bombs would do at ground zero.   Look at the blue highlights above.   Think about that now.)  

The point being that while Cs levels in 2011 had increased compared to 1997 due to Fukushima, they were still lower than anytime between 1970-79, due to nuclear testing.  (Stock --due to direct bombing of the island the tests were conducted on, not at all a fair comparison!)

Stock Here-- This reviewer is kind of pretending that the high rates at Clam lake  are due to overall world wide nuclear testing "fallout".    Clam lake is in the Anchitka Island which was not receiving just worldwide nuclear fallout, but was the actual site of several direct nuclear bomb tests.  

Here is some background
 http://inthesetimes.com/projectcensored/stclair2317new.html

Amchitka Island sits at the midway point on the great arc of Alaska's Aleutian Islands, less than 900 miles across the Bering Sea from the coast of Russia. Amchitka, a spongy landscape of maritime tundra, is one of the most southerly of the Aleutians. The island's relatively temperate climate has made it one of the Arctic's most valuable bird sanctuaries, a critical staging ground for more than 100 migratory species, as well as home to walruses, sea otters and sea lions. Off the coast of Amchitka is a thriving fishery of salmon, pollock, haddock and halibut.
  All of these values were recognized early on. In 1913, Amchitka was designated as a national wildlife refuge by President William Howard Taft. But these ecological wonders were swept aside in the early '60s when the Pentagon and the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) went on the lookout for a new place to blow up H-bombs. Thirty years ago, Amchitka was the site of three large underground nuclear tests, including the most powerful nuclear explosion ever detonated by the United States.
 

Back to the Review


And this is one of the points: outside of the most contaminated parts of Fukushima itself, the fallout from this disaster was much less than that from the nuclear testing period. (stock here---from the nuke testing of 3 bombs on one island, including the largest nuke bomb ever set off by the USA, and they are comparing that to contamination from the Fukushima over 2000 miles away--stock out) That doesn’t make it alright, and we’re not saying bomb test fallout was ok either. In fact as a society we’re still trying to understand what the health effects from testing were.


From our point of view, as a group of people very committed to characterizing and measuring the contamination in order to help people make well-informed decisions regarding their health and well-being, the more we understand about how this compares with past radioactive releases and their effects, the better our decisions and choices will be.

How to Calculate Total Fission Inventory in used Fuel (Thank you to NRC for helping)

NRC responding to a question on the NRC blog

This helps to answer my questions on total inventory of radiation at Fukushima. That will present a worst case scenario of release.

stock: I have reviewed and this is a great resource.    I asked a further question related to MOX which I think will show much worse ending product of spent fuel due to more neutrons flying around and a hotter burn rate.   Will advise if I obtain data.

now, a good estimate of total radiation inventory at Fukushima may be calculated.    I will do so, busy on spring projects, it may take a while.  

---------------------------------------------
I was asked to respond to your question.
The NRC does not track the isotopic inventory in each spent fuel assembly at nuclear power plants. The following is a link to a public document titled “Characteristics of Potential Repository Wastes”:

http://curie.ornl.gov/system/files/documents/38/Part%201%20MOL.20100608.0018%20RW-0184R1%20Vol%201.pdf.

It contains physical, isotopic, and thermal characteristics of all type of commercial spent nuclear fuel assemblies. For example, in the middle of Table 2.4.13 on Page 2.4.17, the most dominant (i.e., >1%) isotopes, in terms of curies/Metric Tons of Initial Heavy Metal (MTIHM), for a typical Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) spent fuel assembly enriched up to 4.42%, burned up to 40,000 MWD/MTIHM, and cooled for 10 years are shown. These numbers are still valid to date. The number for each isotope should be multiplied by 0.45 MTIHM/assembly, which is a typical number for a PWR assembly, in order to obtain the isotopic inventory in a single PWR fuel assembly.

Word Is Slowly Getting out to New Mexico

This log using a new visit counter shows that the message is getting out, at least a little to people in NM.    Be nice to see, say 3000 hits from there though?

Radiation is not a "specialty" that anyone ought to strive to be in.     With exception of some rare nuke medicine and imaging that cannot be better accomplished another way.    And that is a small field.     

GE still pimping out new Cat scans.   Amazing.   



Oppenheimer and Trinity Nuclear Bomb


I am become death, destroyer of worlds Here is a short clip of Oppenheimer and his famous quote above. A reader has suggested the the strange head twist (at 14 seconds in) as he begins his statement of I am Become Death is actually the devil entering his body. It sure is odd. And look at his face, the stress, the introspection, the resignment.

Here is a long documentary, over 1 hour, on The Day After Trinity
One commenter stated----
I wish I could have told Dr. Oppenheimer: - "Thank you for what you have done for us and the burden you carry for your discovery. Now let us share the weight of your discovery and act responsibly for the future of the human race. Your efforts are not to be feared or demonized, but praised for the courage it took to continue forward. Whether we persevere or destroy ourselves is in our hands and you should bear no guilt for what you have accomplished."
 I don't think I can be quite so encouraging or forgiving.   Many of these scientists operate out of ego, trying to play God with matter.  They do bear the burden of the evil they have unleashed on mankind. I haven't reviewed this video at this time, 27 minute interview with Oppenhiemer

Radiation does not "JUST" cause cancer, it is a broad spectrum poison

One of the classic lies of nuke, it that radiation "only" causes cancer. In reality it causes many diseases directly, and works with other weaknesses to create diseases. It is "synergistic" one could say, in an evil way.

 From Mack at ENENEWS--

And it’s not just cancers of the breast, thyroid, liver, pancreas, colon, brain, lung, testes, ovaries, skin, esophagus, blood, etc. that can be caused by manmade nuclear radiation.

It’s also:
  1. Heart disease . 
  2. Respiratory Problems
  3. Stroke
  4. Pneumonia
  5. Increased susceptibility to viruses, bacteria, etc.
  6. Diabetes
  7. Circulatory problems
  8. Blood disorders, i.e., neutropenia, leukemia
  9. Thyroid problems
  10. Skin problems
  11. Stomach problems
  12. Birth defects
  13. Stillborn
  14. Miscarriages
  15. Cataracts
  16. Rashes
  17. Fatigue, dizziness
  18. Hearing loss
  19. Memory loss
  20. Cognitive problems
  21. Joint/Cartilage problems
  22. And more… 
If you listen to the pronukers, however, you may immediately develop a banana phobia, which may be cured by watching the following humorous video first seen on AGreenRoad blog.

Basic Primer on Radiation, Measurement, and Figuring Out What Type of Radiation

This is an awesome video.    I thought I knew a thing or two, and then I found out thats about all I knew, LOL.

This video can double or triple your knowledge in just minutes.    Check it out!


Here is a quick video on testing food. The guy kind of freaks be out, but whatever, he went through a lot of effort to make something understandable to us. Truth benefits the recipient. For the pronukers, lies benefit the giver, except when they are busted dead to rights in a lie. And thats what I do, exposing truth, lie spotting. Debunking. And putting the complex into an easy to grasp format. nukepro out.
