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.

It looks like Japan will be worse than Chernobyl and I along with others were right all along! Japan has been hiding and lying about the whole incident. This is worse than Chernobyl. Take a look at the nice pics with the glowing green radiation coming from inside the reactor. So what do we do to fix this issue?  DISTRACTION! That’s right we just started a war with Libya to ease your minds from the deadly radiation. Please check out my earlier post about zeolite and it’s detox effects written by Shelley Penney.

TEPCO Director Weeps After Disclosing Truth About Fukushima Disaster

Submitted by Tyler Durden

The Daily Mail has released a dramatic picture showing the emotional exhaustion of TEPCO managing director Akio Komori who is openly weeping as he leaves a conference to brief journalists on the true situation at Fukushima, following his acknowledgment that the radiation spewing from the over-heating reactors and fuel rods was enough to kill some citizens. “A senior Japanese minister also admitted that the country was overwhelmed by the scale of the tsunami and nuclear crisis. He said officials should have admitted earlier how serious the radiation leaks were. Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said: ‘The unprecedented scale of the earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan, frankly speaking, were among many things that happened that had not been anticipated under our disaster management contingency plans.” This is precisely as Zero Hedge had expected would happen all along, following our recurring allegations of a massive cover up by the Japanese government. And furthermore as we predicted a week ago when we said that continued government lies and subversions would make the situation untenable once the population loses faith in the government, this is precisely what has happened.

A contrite Komiri crying after he discloses the truth:

And for those who believe the lies that TEPCO and the government has any control over the situation we suggest you read the following:

Deputy director general of the NISA, Hideohiko Nishiyama, also admitted that they do not know if the reactors are coming under control.

He said: ‘With the water-spraying operations, we are fighting a fire we cannot see. That fire is not spreading, but we cannot say yet that it is under control.’

And Yukiya Amano, the head of the U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency said workers were in a ‘race against the clock’ to cool the reactor.

Attempts to quell the overheating plant with waterbombs from helicopters yesterday failed and despite the army pelting the site with water cannon, radiation levels rose higher.

Engineers are also working to restore power to the coolant pumping system knocked out by the tsunami.

Also, the Mail shows a dramatic photo of a crane used to move spent fuel rodes into a now empty storage pond.

pictures emerged showing overheating fuel rods exposed to the elements through a huge hole in the wall of a reactor building at the destroyed Fukushima nuclear plant.

Radiation is streaming into the atmosphere from the used uranium rods at reactor number four, after a 45ft-deep storage pool designed to keep them stable boiled dry in a fire.

And some of the radioactive material could reach Britain within a fortnight, according to experts.

However they say it will not be dangerous when it reaches our shores while low levels of radiation have already hit Southern California.

And while we descrbed the worst case scenario, i.e., the Chernobyl Solution, earlier, there is still hope for a last ditch deux ex machina over the weekend.

There was a potential breakthrough when engineers succeeded in connecting a power line to Reactor 2. This should enable them to restore electricity to the cooling pumps needed to prevent meltdown.

But it is not certain the system will work after suffering extensive damage.

Unfortunately, judging by how horrendously the government and the utility have handled the crisis so far, we are extremely skeptical any further attempts to improve the situation with fail spectacularly. In the meantime, the Japanese economy is slowing grinding to a halt as more people leave Tokyo, as factories lie dormant, and as high tech supply chains are suddenly halted. Out estimate, unlike that of an increasingly less than credible Bloomberg, is that the adverse impact to 2011 world GDP will be well at least 2% when all is said and done just factoring the events to date. Should the situation continue to stagnate it will get far worse.

Well written article by Shelley Penney of Canada on her experiences with zeolite.

Radiation Protection and Zeolite

 

Can a little known porous crystal help you in a nuclear crisis?

 

A unique crystalline substance, pretty much unknown outside of scientific circles, and niche interest
groups, could see a gain in popularity as nuclear fall out or radiation sickness becomes a concern. This
substance, known as zeolite, has some unique properties that make it a viable aid in ridding the body of
radiation once exposed.

Zeolites are naturally formed volcanic minerals with some very unique characteristics. They have a
honeycomb-like framework of cavities and channels (often referred to as cages). The zeolite is one of
the few negatively charged minerals in nature. These molecules behave like magnets, drawing heavy
metals and radioactive particles to them, capturing them inside a molecular cage.

There are around 45 naturally occurring zeolites and over 100 man-made zeolites. There are three
different classes of zeolites with varying molecular chemical structures:

• Chain‐like structures whose minerals form acicular, or needle‐like, prismatic crystals ‐ as found
in asbestos.
• Framework structures where the crystals are more equal in dimensions ‐ as found in chabazite.
• Sheet‐like structures where the crystals are flattened ‐ as found in clinoptilolite.

Zeolites have been used in practice in many industrial applications in the past, and more recently as a
dietary supplement to to it’s extraordinary ability for trapping, heavy metals and toxins.
The actual Clinoptilolite Zeolite molecule is shaped like a honey-comb and carries a natural negative
(-) charge. When this type of Zeolite is ingested into the body all of the positively charged (+) heavy
metals, toxins, and harmful chemicals bond with the zeolite and are flushed out through the urine
within 6-8 hours.

How does this translate into something practicle when faced with a potential nuclear fallout?
The zeolite molecules, acting like a magnet with a negative charge, grab on to the radioactive particles
which have a positive charge. This means that if you have ingested or absorbed radioactive particles,
the zeolite can be ingested and potentially find and grab on to those particles and remove them safely
through excretion.

Has zeolite been used effectively? Absolutely, zeolite has been scattered on radioactive spills to aid in
clean up, and zeolite has been given to people orally to help internally. In fact, during the aftermath of
the most famous nuclear disaster of all time at Chernobyl, zeolite was given to children and adults who
had been exposed to radioactive particulate.

There are a number of zeolite products for ingestion available on the market in powder, capsule and
suspension form. Although I have my preference, and have the knowledge and resources to have
planned ahead, that may not be the case in crisis.

If you are reading this and you have time to plan, then do your research on liquid zeolite to make sure
you are getting the best product available. If you do not have any time, then scour natural food or
health stores, or head online to order any and as much zeolite dietary supplement as you can. Using
zeolite along with iodine could very well mean the difference between sickness and relative health, for
people who survive a nuclear accident.
