Chernobyl Aerosolizing Radiation in Forest Fire on It's 28th Anniversary. Consequences Continue

Folks, for the next 40 days it is time to ramp up your antioxidants and lemon balm.

Also clean your HEPA filters now and run continuously

Avoid playing in the rain

Forest fires at Chernobyl are going to launch significant radiation into the air. it goes around the world in 40 days.

And amazing that this occurs on the 28 anniversary of Chernobyl.

stock here, in the original Chernobyl admission they spouted....

————–The report said that one of the reactors had been damaged in the accident, but gave no further details beyond saying that measures were being taken to “eliminate the consequences of the accident”. It also claimed the accident was the first at a Soviet power station.

I see they are still trying to eliminate the consequences…..
asshats that be

The BBC originally posted in 2012
 Much of the 30km exclusion zone around the Chernobyl nuclear plant is pine forest, and some of it so badly contaminated that a forest fire could create a devastating radioactive smoke cloud.

Where are they weighing in today during the forest fire....near silence.

“A large amount of Caesium-137 still remains in the Chernobyl forests, which could be remobilized along with a large number of other dangerous, long-lived, refractory radionuclides. We predict that an expanding flammable area associated with climate change will lead to a high risk of radioactive contamination with characteristic fire peaks in the future,” said the abstract of a study published in Ecological Monographs magazine by the respected Norwegian Institute for Air Research.

Lemon Balm, grow wildly like a mint, tastes great.......



Can Lemon Balm as a tea be an effective punch back to long term low dose radiation?
PubMed is a credible source, and they say the protection is clear-cut.     Hmmm....maybe this is key tool in the post Fukushima world.    Too bad we can't dose the Pacific with Lemon Balm

Abstract
The aim of this study was to determine the capability of Melissa officinalis L. (Lemon balm) infusion on improvement of oxidative stress status in radiology staff that were exposed to persistent low-dose radiation during work. The study was a before-after clinical trial performed on 55 radiology staff. They were asked to drink Lemon balm infusion which was prepared like a tea bag twice daily (1.5 g/100 mL) for 30 days. In the plasma, lipid peroxidation, DNA damage, catalase, superoxide dismutase, myeloperoxidase, and glutathione peroxidase activity were measured before and after using Lemon balm infusion.Use of Lemon balm infusion in radiology unit workers resulted in a significant improvement in plasma levels of catalase, superoxide dismutase, and glutathione peroxidase and a marked reduction in plasma DNA damage, myeloperoxidase, and lipid peroxidation. It is concluded that infusion of Lemon balm markedly improve oxidative stress condition and DNA damage in radiology staff when used as a dietary supplement for radiation protection.

Oyster Creek at Risk of Meltdown

And in USA, the captured regulatory called the NRC will do "additional inspections" after it found that Exelon was bypassing required maintenance and testing to increase profits.  

Even though they classified as a substanital safety significance, they only had the cajones to ask them to "be viligant" rather than slapping those of criminal negligence in to jail.
