Nuclear Physicist: “Most Of The [FUKUSHIMA] Plutonium MOX Fuel Nuclear Fallout Likely To Drop On The U.S As US Plutonium Levels At 20 Year Highs…”
May 19, 2012 – “As plutonium and uranium concentrations in the US hit their highest levels in 20 years a top nuclear physicists says most of the plutonium MOX nuclear fallout from Fukushima will drop on the United States… In an interview with the Huffington Post, Nuclear Engineer Akira Tokuhiro, says most of the plutonium mox fuel nuclear fallout from the Fukushima nuclear power plant will likely drop on the United States. Throughout the article the engineer slams other nuclear experts for covering up the true extent of the Fukushima nuclear disaster for the sake of saving their own jobs, clearly saying the bottom line is they can not be trusted.”
Please Join Japanese Ambassador Murata, General Bert and Dr. Rima; help us “educate decision makers” by sending messages to your representatives, the President, your Governor and Japan that we demand full focus on the Fukushima threat!

Says Nutraingredients-usa: “The FDA might have spent the past year vigorously defending its much-maligned draft guidance on new dietary ingredients (NDIs), but it appears it has been listening to industry concerns as well.” http://www.nutraingredients-usa.com/content/view/print/647989
We have continually raised the alert regarding the NDI Guidance, the successor to the much malligned 2007 CAM Guidance. With many thousands of health freedom advocates using our Educate Decision Makers system to easily send email messages to their Congressional representatives, we have once again shown that Push Back works… but the threats remain, with FDA-empowering S.3187 having passed the Senate and now in the House.

GMOs – Labeling Amendment and Push Back!
Among the “Weaponized Technologies” that threaten all of our genetic heritage (such as vaccine/drug toxins, ionizing radiation, environmental poisons) GMO [Genetically Modified Organisms] foods with their “novel proteins” rank dangerously high. These technologies are too dangerous to pass the test of the Precautionary Principal; they are among the potentially Genomicidal Technologies.
Action Item: Support GMO Labeling
Plutonium From Fukushima Made It Around The Planet
A recently published study  in the Journal of Environmental Radioactivity confirms that the radioactive fallout from the Fukushima nuclear disaster reached Europe (Lithuania), and included plutonium, the most deadly manmade element (nanogram for nanogram) in existence.
According to the study’s authors the radionuclide concentrations measured indicate there was “long-range air mass transport from Japan across the Pacific, the North America and the Atlantic Ocean to Central Europe as indicated by modelling.” What this means is that every region under the jet stream — which includes half of the planet north of its equator — could have been exposed to some degree of plutonium fall-out; a fact that is all the more disturbing when we consider there is no such thing as a safe level , and that the harm (on the human scale of time) does not dissipate: the half life of plutonium-239 is 24,200 years, and that of uranium-238 is 4,460,000,000 years, which is older than our planet.
In a past exposé , where we identified the likelihood of the occurrence we are now reporting on, we published Jet Stream radiation dispersion projections from Germany’s EURAD system which showed that Radioiodine-131 and Cesium-137 were within detectable concentrations thousands of miles away from Fukushima within days after the event. This was, after all, a nuclear explosion (as occurred also at Chernobyl) producing extremely small particles moving at extremely high velocity, and not a hydrogen-based conflagration, which was erroneously reported to be the case in the first days following the disaster.
Nuclear radiation ‘the greatest public health hazard’
- Helen Caldicott is a longtime activist against nuclear weapons, nuclear power
- She says Japan accident could pose grave health dangers for workers, those living nearby
- She says even with small radiation release, cancer will increase; children more at risk
- Caldicott: Media interview physicists, but event has vast medical dimensions
(CNN) — When she was an adolescent, Helen Caldicott says, she read the nuclear apocalypse novel “On the Beach.” The story was set in the aftermath of an atomic war; the protagonists must await the arrival of a deadly fallout cloud.
It was a formative event, she says, and later, in medical school, the connection between health and nuclear energy would galvanize her. “I learned about genetics and radiation in first-year medicine and became acutely aware of nuclear weapons, nuclear war and the damage radiation does to genes and all life forms.”
Caldicott went on to become one of the most vocal, ubiquitous and controversial opponents of nuclear power during the anti-nuclear movement of the 1970s and 1980s.
The crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, severely damaged after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, has given a fresh urgency, she says, to a “medical problem of vast dimensions,” highlighted by reports that emerge daily on the spread of radiation.
A pediatrician, Caldicott came from her native Australia to become an instructor on the faculty of Harvard Medical School, where she specialized in the treatment of cystic fibrosis at the Children’s Hospital Medical Center. She soon helped revive the moribund Physicians for Social Responsibility, a health organization dedicated to halting the proliferation and use of nuclear weapons and nuclear power.
While she was president, from 1978 through 1984, the group grew to 23,000 physician members and in 1985 shared in a Nobel Peace Prize with International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War. “We led the nuclear weapons freeze movement with many other professional groups,” she said. “I think we helped to end the Cold War.”
