7.5 mil. times legal limit of iodine in sea

The operator of the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant says 7.5 million times the legal limit of radioactive iodine 131 has been detected from samples of seawater near the plant.

Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, found on Saturday that contaminated water was leaking from a cracked concrete pit near the No. 2 reactor.

Experts say this makes it clear that highly radioactive substances from the reactor are flowing into the sea, and that the leak must be stopped as soon as possible.

The utility firm said samples of water taken near the water intake of the No. 2 reactor at 11:50 AM Saturday contained 300,000 becquerels of iodine 131 per cubic centimeter, or 7.5 million times the legal limit.
TEPCO said the figure had dropped to 200,000 becquerels per cubic centimeter, or 5 million times the legal limit, in samples taken at 9:00 AM Monday.

Monday’s sample also contained 1.1 million times the legal limit of cesium 137, which has a half life of 30 years.

On March 27th, 13-million becquerels of iodine 131 per cubic centimeter of water were detected in the turbine building of the No. 2 reactor. On Wednesday, water was found accumulated in a tunnel near the turbine building and the radiation level on the surface was measured at more than 1,000 millisieverts per hour.

The Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency says it believes the radioactive substances are from nuclear fuel which leaked from the reactor into the water and flowed out.

Check out Youtube video that is released by the United Nations. It shows a nuclear cloud or storm coming from Japan spread across from Alaska to Hawaii to California and Canadian coastlines. Nuclear fallout is something we all look forward to.

Conflicting stories? this is what I can’t understand…why are the higher ups so against people preparing? Not “well we don’t think it is necessary, but it wouldn’t hurt”. No, it’s getting to the point of “DON’T BUY”. Seriously their reason is “because the iodide could possibly cause an allergic reaction or be harmful”. So it’s best to get nuclear fallout radiation instead? Are these officials serious? Is the normal human dumb enough to believe these fools? Look if you are trying to avoid fallout, you’re not going to give two shits if your body doesn’t react well to the pills, you’re going to be happy it’s reacting at all and not rotting in the ground from nuclear fallout DEATH!

Simply to avoid allergy issues, speak with a doctor. It’s as simply as that. Surgeon General seems to be getting alot of flack for simply telling the American public it is okay to prepare.

Surgeon General: Buying Iodide a “Precaution”

Conflicting messages appear in the effort to buy iodide tablets

By LORI PREUITT

The fear that a nuclear cloud could float from the shores of Japan to the shores of California has some people making a run on iodine tablets. Pharmacists across California report being flooded with requests.

State and county officials spent much of Tuesday trying to keep people calm by saying that getting the pills wasn’t necessary, but then the United States surgeon general supported the idea as a worthy “precaution.”

U.S. Surgeon General Regina Benjamin was in the Bay Area touring a peninsula hospital. NBC Bay Area reporter Damian Trujillo asked her about the run on tablets and Dr. Benjamin said although she wasn’t aware of people stocking up, she did not think that would be an overreaction. She said it was right to be prepared.

On the other side of the issue is Kelly Huston of the California Emergency Management Agency. Huston said state officials, along with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the California Energy Commission, were monitoring the situation and said people don’t need to buy the pills.

Hey folks.

There is alot of concern about the fallout reaching the United States and Canada (mostly British Columbia area), and there should be concern.

One thing I’ve learned is never trust officials. Because it is usually officially bullshit. Another is propagandist will tell you both sides of the story in the same sentence and end it with everything is fine, because as a human that is the last you hear.

Reactors are fine, high levels of rads and nuclear fallout, but nothing to be worried about as it is contained. First of all you can not contain fallout, fallout means that is nuclear steam or ash/radiation is in the sky and possibly could hit a jetstream.  Any type of high levels of rads / radiation will cause cancer or kill you. It is never okay.

It is like the old “peace and security” “feel safe”, then a war breaks out.

So I wanted to post this to give some…well, tips to be prepared. See I post this not to be a fear monger or to scare the living hell out of you, but to possibly prepare. Even if it helps ONE person.

Radiation will come to the USA and Canada. Radiation levels are unknown. The situation (or SITREP) is unknown in Japan and by the time anyone finds out is too late. SO PREP PREP PREP.

Alot of buzz about Potassium Iodide. One thing I’ve also notice is that consumers are getting things confused as well. You want to buy Potassium Iodide, not Iodine. Table salt is not going to help you.

Once again no ones if the rads will be harmful or deadly until it happens so this is just advice.

One thing you want to do is speak with a doctor or your doctor about Iodide. It can have an effect on your thyroid. There are people out with thyroid diseases or issues. Last thing you want is to prepare and then cause a medical concern due to thyroids.  But the best, I believe, alternative and really primary prep is seaweed.

Seaweed food and Brown Rice. Add to that the miso soup. Microbiotics came out during the Nagasaki and Hiroshima bombings. Long story short, patients in hospital were trapped due to bombings of World War II. The only thing they had to eat were forms of Brown Seaweed, Brown Rice and Miso soup. After studying these individuals after this atrocious ordeal, they checked out in good condition compared to all those who were “burnt” on the inside due to the rads.

Run a search on Brown Seaweed. Pills are good for fast intake, but brown seaweed and brown rice which are both boiled and ingested is the best. If you decide to get some pills, break the capsules into a glass of water and take for faster blood soak. Don’t wait for the capsule to break down.
