According to an article in WashingtonsBlog, Japanese experts have stated that Fukushima is currently releasing up to 93 billion becquerels (a measurement of radioactivity) of radioactive cesium into the ocean per day.
How much radiation is that?
Per the article: “A quick calculation shows that Chernobyl released around ten thousand times more radioactive cesium each day during the reactor fire. But the Chernobyl fire only lasted 10 days … and the Fukushima release has been ongoing for more than 2 years so far.”
Actually by now it has been more than four years.
There is no question our oceans are contaminated by radiation and with it the life within. Uranium is a very toxic contaminant. The half-lives of uranium isotopes (the amount of time needed for half of the isotope to give off its radiation and change into a different element) are very long. The least radioactive isotope is 238U with a half-life of 4.5 billion years.
That’s right. 4.5 billion years!
Will our sea life be undergoing an environmental evolution, a transition that could even create “new species” of life that will be more capable of living in their contaminated surroundings? What about us?
According to the Marine Stewardship Council, “About a billion people in developing countries rely on fish as their primary animal protein source. In 2010, fish provided more than 2.9 billion people with almost 20% of their intake of animal protein, and 4.3 billion people about 15% of such protein.”
But is eating fish safe?
Notwithstanding government sources, mounting evidence says no!
Will the human race evolve into a “new species” like sea creatures as result of Fukushima? And if we do, what will our new appearance be, or will we have newly evolved organs to clear the contaminants?
Radiation currently is cleansed by the liver and kidneys and absorbed into the bones. While most of the uranium we are exposed to via inhalation or ingestion is not absorbed and leaves the body though waste products, some inhaled uranium can stay in the lungs for a long time. And we are not talking about a single dose of radiation poisoning but rather an ongoing dosing for the past four years.
Given our current physiological makeup, ongoing absorption of radiation would be impossible to pass through the body without eventually causing cancers unless some form of human evolution occurs.
Continued radiation exposure will cause cellular degradation due to DNA damage.
According to Wikipedia: “The onset and type of symptoms depends on the radiation exposure. Relatively smaller doses result in gastrointestinal effects, such as nausea and vomiting, and symptoms related to falling blood counts, and predisposition to infection and bleeding. (Like the fish discovered in Canada) Relatively larger doses can result in neurological effects and rapid death. Treatment of acute radiation syndrome is generally supportive with blood transfusions and antibiotics, with some more aggressive treatments, such as bone marrow transfusions, being required in extreme cases.
Similar symptoms may appear months to years after exposure as chronic radiation syndrome when the dose rate is too low to cause the acute form.
Radiation exposure can also increase the probability of developing some other diseases, mainly different types of cancers. These diseases are sometimes referred to as radiation sickness.”
Should we be concerned? You decide for yourself.
There is evidence that our oceans are in trouble, and this form of food may be too contaminated for consumption, affecting the more than one billion people that rely on fish for their food chain survival.
Since the Fukushima reactor meltdown, all seafood may contain radiation, but that isn’t the end; it’s only the beginning.
Seafood is still sold in our society apparently without fear of the health risks, and sushi restaurants continue to open all around the country even though Fukushima—and radiated fish—is a proven banality.
What more proof do we need to sustain a survival concern that Fukushima is real and not some conspiracy theory? Evidence is available for those who care to know the truth.
Again, per WashingtonsBlog, “Tests in California found that 15 out of 15 blue fin tuna were contaminated with radiation from Fukushima.” Tuna is a common staple for Westerners. According to Steve Elwart of WND, “Experts have found very high levels of cesium-137 in plankton living in the waters of the Pacific Ocean between Hawaii and the West Coast.”
Could all this increase of radiation be the reason for the growing number of children now born with impaired thyroid glands?
In 2012, ReaderSupportedNews.org reported that “Cesium-137 was being found in a very high percentage of the fish that Japan was selling to Canada.” For example:
- 73 percent of mackerel tested
- 91 percent of the halibut
- 92 percent of the sardines
- 93 percent of the tuna and eel
- 94 percent of the cod and anchovies
- 100 percent of the carp, seaweed, shark and monkfish.
Experts believe we could see very high levels of cancer along the West Coast just from people eating contaminated fish. This is without even discussing the air or other contaminated animals or milk. In fact, Integrative Cancer Answers predicts: “Almost one third of children born on the Pacific coast of the United States are now at high risk for thyroid cancer (and a host of other cancers that will be revealed over time.) The inevitable has happened. Radioactive Cesium isotopes from the leaking nuclear reactors in Fukushima, Japan have reached our Pacific shores and are contaminating our ocean, our, soil, our air, our food supply and our born and unborn children.”
North Asia correspondent Matthew Carney has stated “It is expected that thyroid cancers could turn up about four to five years after a nuclear disaster.”
The Fukushima meltdown was on March 11, 2011, and we are already seeing thyroid cancers in children all along the Pacific Coast.
If you aren’t afraid of the truth read the information at the following link:
The U.S. Government has been covering up the seriousness of the problem.
Meanwhile the sushi and sashimi industry has not suffered as new restaurants continue to open. Restaurants continue to offer fish and chips and seafood dinners and salads. Even today!
People still accept the word of government that the doses we are getting are safe, but evidence and facts tell a different story.
To me, after researching the facts, it is no longer just about the oceans and our food supply from that source, Fukushima could signal something much more sinister. A “new species”?
In the words of Nikki Rosen: “No denial of the truth will ever invalidate it.” And I couldn’t agree more.
