Doctor and radiation expert identifies key solution to Fukushima radiation nightmare
September 27, 2013
As the Fukushima radiation nightmare continues, top experts and analysts are continuing to warn against the devastating radiological effects that are already hammering citizens of the Northern Hemisphere and around the globe at record levels.
And while Fukushima is considered to be ‘even worse’ by nuclear scientists and researchers than Chernobyl in terms of the radioactive contamination, what’s even more concerning is the fact that Fukushima is only one factor in the spiking levels of radiation within the United States and abroad.
Over the past several decades we have seen the emergence of excessive nuclear testing, the voluminous creation of nuclear power facilities, medical applications with radiation, the pollution of the air with radioactive elements, and even the absolute contamination of the food supply with health-crushing radiation — all contributing to a spike in background radiation levels that have been steadily climbing since just 60 years ago.
Meanwhile, even the Fukushima plant operators were forced to admit that the radiation levels released from the plant explosion were at the very least 2 1/2 times greater than they admitted. But the real question is what happened to the majority of the radioactive contamination? According to one revealing study examining the true crippling effects of Fukushima on the globe, 20% of the caesium-137 fell on Japanese land, and about 2% ended up on land outside the country. The remainder came down in the Pacific Ocean, which means around 68% of the highly dangerous radioactive waste was released directly into the Pacific Ocean.
Is it any wonder now that the EPA is actually going ahead and raising the ‘acceptable levels’ of radiation in the food supply as other nations just blatantly shut off their radiation tracking systems? Radioactive isotopes have already been discovered in California, and even as far away as Boston. There’s a reason that even the Huffington Post now says that we are facing ‘Fukushima Forever’ as radiation continues to drain into the ocean.
