The situation at Fukushima is NOT expected to improve any time soon. Radioactive emissions will continue to accumulate in Japan, North America, the Pacific Ocean and throughout the Northern Hemisphere for the foreseeable future, We have waited to bring you these tools not wanting to become part of the global panic and normal scaremongering, and in the hope that the situation would improve, It now seems the situation has continued to deteriorate and some form of personal monitoring would be prudent

The decision to raise the alert level to 7 amounts to an admission that the accident is likely to have substantial and long-lasting consequences for health and for the environment.

“Radiation is continuing to leak out of the reactors, the situation is not stable at all, radiation continues to leak,” says Dr. Michio Kaku, professor of theoretical physics at the City University of New York and top graduate of Harvard. “We are looking at a ticking timebomb. It appears stable but the slightest disturbance, a secondary earthquake, a pipe break, evacuation of the crew at Fukishima could set off a full scale melt down at three nuclear power stations–far beyond what we saw at Chernobyl.”


Radiation map chernobyl disaster

At least 14 US cities reported unsafe radiation amounts in drinking water. However, EPA is only testing for Iodine-131, not Cesium, Uranium or Plutonium, all emitted from Fukushima. Several radiation monitoring stations throughout Spain have recorded increases in the concentration of iodine and cesium in the air coming from Japan. Same goes for France.

Aftershocks rattling Japan after the nation’s record quake on March 11 may continue for at least six months, increasing the risk of damage to a crippled nuclear plant at the center of the worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl. “Aftershocks as big as magnitude-7 are likely to continue hitting in eastern and northern Japan for at least six months,” said Teruyuki Kato, a professor at the University of Tokyo’s Earthquake Research Institute.

This is the main scientist to listen to and it’s worthwhile to watch his most recent statements on the video. Radioactive contamination from the Fukushima power plant has been carried around the world and far out to sea and if current estimates and the situation do not worsen we already will have 10 percent of Chernobyl’s radiation spreading around the globe and it looks like each and every month we will see another 10 percent of another Chernobyl’s worth of radiation released to contaminate the world further. Dr. Kaku says his family is already leaving Tokyo because they don’t believe the statements of the Japanese utility because they have consistently low-balled the dangers, as has everyone else.

 


Full meltdown in full swing? Japan maximum nuclear alert

Dr. Chris Busby, another physicist says there is a rage in the people in Tokyo and he now predicts based on his calculations that 800,000 people out of about 8 million who live within 200 kilomters of the plant will contract cancer if they are not moved out. Dr. Kaku still advises entombment in a giant slab of concrete, with 5000 tons of cement, sand and boric acid but if that ever happens it will be months away and take a huge effort that would take many more months

Radioactive Iodine -131
China’s Ministry of Health said today April 13, that radioactive isotope iodine-131 had been detected in various kinds of vegetables in 12 provincial regions. The radioactive isotope was found in spinach, asparagus, lettuce, cabbage, Chinese cabbage and other vegetables in Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Shandong, Henan, Hunan, Guangdong, Guangxi and Hainan, according to a statement from the ministry.

The risks associated with iodine-131 contamination in Europe are no longer “negligible,” according to CRIIRAD, a French research body on radioactivity. The NGO is advising pregnant women and infants against “risky behavior,” such as consuming fresh milk or vegetables with large leaves. In response to thousands of inquiries from citizens concerned about fallout from the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Europe, CRIIRAD has compiled an information package on the risks of radioactive iodine-131 contamination in Europe.

After the radioactive cloud emanating from Japan’s stricken Fukushima nuclear power plant reached Europe in late March, CRIIRAD, a French research body on radioactivity, an NGO, said it had detected radioactive iodine-131 in rainwater in south-eastern France. In parallel testing, the French Institute for Radiological Protection and Nuclear Safety (IRSN), the national public institution monitoring nuclear and radiological risks, found iodine 131 in milk. In normal times, no trace of iodine-131 should be detectable in rainwater or milk. Radiation monitors in Canada, in Ontario, New Brunswick and British Columbia have also detected radioactive iodine.

These two physicists are the men to monitor if you want a real assesment of the level seven nuclear disaster. With each passing week the words “safe”, “low levels”, “not harmful” will all lose their meaning as the more massive amounts of radiation are released.

This accident has already released something on the order of 50,000 trillion becquerels of radiation. You do the math. That puts it right smack in the middle of a level 7 nuclear accident,” said Kaku. NISA and Japan’s Nuclear Safety Commission (NSC) estimate that 370,000 – 630,000 terabecquerels of radioactive materials have been released from Units 1, 2 and 3. One terabecquerel equals one trillion becquerels.

Br. Busby, who is Scientific Secretary of the European Committee on Radiation Risk, calculated two weeks ago radiation levels two weeks ago. “Since the official International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) figures for the Fukushima contamination are from 200 to 900kBq.sq meter out to 78km from the site, we can expect between 22% and 90% increases in cancer in people living in these places in the next 10 years. The UN definition of radioactively contaminated land is 37kBq/sq metre. Since the IAEA data show that these levels of contamination, from 200,000 to 900,000 disintegrations per second per square meter, exist up to 78km from Fukushima, we can already calculate that the contamination is actually worse than Chernobyl, not 1% of Chernobyl. For the area defined by a 78km radius is 19113 sq km compared to the Chernobyl exclusion zone of 2827 sq km. About seven times greater.”

In the next month we will see a repeat or perhaps an intensification of the radiation being put out into the environment—as the melting nuclear materials continue to break through barriers. Radiation emitted will continue for an indeterminate period – at least months, maybe years—many many years

Are personal Radiation Detectors effective?

Illinois will donate 2,000 personal radiation detectors to Japan for use by emergency workers as they search through debris and start cleanup operations, according to a report of Chicago Tribune Friday. The pager-sized detectors will alert workers when radiation levels spike and help limit the danger of radiation exposure. Source

Radiation sickness

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission on Sunday said the U.S. faced little threat from radiation released in Japan in the aftermath of the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. "Given the thousands of miles between the two countries, Hawaii, Alaska, the U.S. Territories and the U.S. West Coast are not expected to experience any harmful levels of radioactivity," the agency said on its website.

But not everyone is feeling so reassured.

If fuel at a nuclear reactor melts down completely and breaches the reactor's containment vessel, it could cause a gigantic explosion as superheated fuel comes into contact with the water coolant. That's the word from Dr. Ira Helfand, a Massachusetts-based nuclear safety expert and past-president of Physicians for Social Responsibility. He said it's not clear just how far such radiation from such an accident would spread - and what the health consequences would be.

 


Dr. Michio Kaku, Theoretical Physicist: Fukishima Daiichi Nuclear Facility is a "Ticking Time Bomb"

Radiation sickness results when humans (or other animals) are exposed to very large doses of ionizing radiation. Radiation exposure can occur as a single large exposure (acute), or a series of small exposures spread over time (chronic).

Radiation sickness is generally associated with acute exposure and has a characteristic set of symptoms that appear in an orderly fashion. Chronic exposure is usually associated with delayed medical problems such as cancer and premature aging, which may happen over a long period of time.

"At Chernobyl, it spread over large areas of Europe, and significant areas up to 100 miles downwind needed to be abandoned," he said, referring to the notorious 1986 nuclear accident. "But the conditions were somewhat different, and we aren't sure how far the radiation will be distributed this time."

The risk of cancer depends on the dose and begins to build up even with very low doses. There is no "minimum threshhold."

Expected health effects for an adult assuming the cumulative total radiation exposure

Causes: The causes include:
• Accidental exposure to high doses of radiation such as a nuclear power plant accidents
• Exposure to excessive radiation for medical treatments

What if you think you've been exposed to radiation? The Federal Emergency Management Agency recommends immediately changing your clothes and shoes, putting the exposed clothing in a sealed plastic bag, and then showering thoroughly.

If told to evacuate, the agency says, keep car windows and vents closed, and use recirculating air. If told to stay indoors, turn off the air conditioner and other air intakes and go to a basement.

10 Symptoms Of Radiation Sickness

There is lots of information from Russia about the use of iodine to protect the thyroid. In Poland the use of iodine dosages was found to highly protect children’s thyroids from cancer. The risk for cancer of the thyroid is much greater in children requiring much lower exposure to I-131 than it does for adults. Same goes for pregnant women or lactating women.

Potassium iodide supplements can help curb the risk of cancer if taken just before or shortly after exposure, Dr. Helfand says, but should taken only with medical supervision.

The specific causes of potential life-threatening nuclear radiation emergencies include...

Nuclear power plant accidents here or abroad (Three Mile Island, Chernobyl)
Nuclear materials processing plant accidents (Tokaimura, Japan)Nuclear waste storage or processing facilities mishaps (radioactive waste from hospitals, spent fuel and radioactive waste from nuclear power plants, radioactive contaminated materials, etc.)
Nuclear waste transport truck or train accidents
Accidents involving non-waste, but normal daily nuclear materials transport (trucks, planes, trains, couriers) One out every 50 HazMat shipments contain radioactive materials. Approximately three million packages of radioactive material are shipped in the United States each year.
Improper storage of radioactive materials (non-waste) at any point during their normal material life cycle. (Power plants, Medical, Industrial, Academic, etc.)
Lost or stolen radioactive sources "Based on information available to the NRC, an average of approximately 375 sources or devices of all kinds are reported lost or stolen each year in the U.S. -- that is, roughly one per day."NRC

What can i monitor ?

Imports from Japan and other affected countries
Your Food
Your enviroment

A Canada Border Services Agency official has refused to handle packages coming from Japan after he was denied the use of a radioactive screening device, a union official says. The anxiety comes a month after a devastating 9.0.-magnitude earthquake and tsunami hit the coast of Japan, crippling the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.The complaint was initially voiced a week-and-a-half ago when a worker at the Gateway postal facility in Mississauga asked to use a radiation detector to screen mail that was arriving from Japan. “His request was denied by the CBSA,” said Jason McMichael, national vice-president of the Customs and Immigration Union.

The Associated Press has reported that radiation monitors are being deployed in the western United States and Pacific territories in an effort to allay concerns about the danger of exposure to radiation from the nuclear plants. In addition to Guam and CNMI, Hawaii and Alaska also are setting up monitoring stations which will send real-time data via satellite to EPA officials, who will make the data available to the public online, the AP reported.

And the beat goes on :(

Do I need a Radiation Detector?

The reasons for acquiring a radiation detecting dosimeter are as varied as are peoples perceptions of the most likey threats. Radiation threats are unique in that you can't see, smell, taste, hear or feel them, until it's already done its damage and you are suffering the effects. Without a radiation detector you would have to depend solely on the limited resources of the authorities to monitor your location, then determine your risk level, decide the best protective action and then to 'get the word out'. Exclusively depending on others to monitor, evaluate, warn and advise you, in a rapidly developing nuclear radiation problems, would surely not be anywhere near as quick or accurate in revealing your current risk as when you are capable of taking your own independent radiation readings.

Bottom Line: Having on-hand an inexpensive radiation detector in this day and age is a low cost family warning system.
