Fukushima update - North American food supply poisoned along Pacific Coast
#1
Has the MSM started to pick up on this...I doubt it, but here is an article which could give an impression that some may be coming out of their 'Obummer' freeze. This is serious stuff for all of us and not just those living around the Pacific Coasts.

I already avoid ALL fish foods from the Gulf of Mexico. There are some big problems still, after the oil spill [that continues spilling BTW], even if the beaches appear pristine. Under the surface and out to sea, lots of problems, but that's another story. The sources of clean and untainted fish are gettin' fewer every day!

Now we find that the Japan situation could be affecting even the plant life and then our animals and ourselves since Iodine is found in just about every living thing! The problem is, plants and animals bodies (and ours too) don't make the distinction between the normal and the iodine-129, which can become a deadly source of irradiation in a body...any body/plant.

Serious dodo!!

Fukushima update - North American food supply poisoned along Pacific Coast

Sunday, July 14, 2013 by: Carolanne Wright

(NaturalNews) If you live on the West Coast of the U.S. or Canada, you may want to reconsider your water filtration method as well as how you select and prepare food. Evidently, the nightmare of Fukushima is far from over - another 16 million years to be exact. Due to the astonishingly long half-life of iodine-129, the whole ecosystem of the Pacific Coast will be contaminated pretty much forever.

Lifespan of radioactive isotopes and other trivia
Among other dangerous radioactive isotopes released from the Fukushima meltdown, iodine-129 also spewed forth from the damaged reactor. Incredibly, this isotope has a half-life of 16 million years. Essentially, the entire West Coast food supply of North America will be contaminated with radiation for unlimited generations. We have fundamentally entered into a new way of life - one that takes a giant leap toward illness, disease and heightened mortality rates.

Consider the water supply. Not only does it provide drinking water for humans and animals, but it also irrigates crops. When the supply is contaminated, it influences everything. According to a public health statement made by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR):

"Iodine in the oceans enters the air from sea spray or as iodine gases. Once in the air, iodine can combine with water or with particles in the air and can enter the soil and surface water, or land on vegetation when these particles fall to the ground or when it rains. Iodine can remain in soil for a long time because it combines with organic material in the soil. It can also be taken up by plants that grow in the soil. Cows or other animals that eat these plants will take up the iodine in the plants. Iodine that enters surface water can reenter the air as iodine gases."

The question is, does radioactive iodine spread in the same manner as its natural counterpart? Unfortunately, the answer is an unequivocal "yes." The agency continues:

"Radioactive iodine also forms naturally from chemical reactions high in the atmosphere. Most radioactive forms of iodine change very quickly (seconds to days) to stable elements that are not radioactive. However, one form, 129I, changes very slowly (millions of years), and its levels build up in the environment."

Before packing up and relocating to Antarctica, a few options are available that can drastically reduce exposure to these harmful elements.

Protect and detoxify
Here are several precautions that can help shield individuals from a radioactive food supply:

- View all fish.gif and crustaceans from the Pacific Ocean as tainted.

- Always use filtered water for cooking and drinking.

- Pay attention to the origin of dairy.

- Wash any produce thoroughly with natural soap and rinse with purified water.

- Avoid meat from contaminated regions (including wild game).

Another level of defense is explained in the article, Remove radiation from your produce with Calcium Bentonite Clay:

"You can add Calcium Bentonite Clay to your milk and drinking water if you're concerned about the possibility of contamination there as well. Add approximately 1 ounce of liquid Calcium Bentonite Clay to a gallon of organic raw milk or water. Some people prefer to let the clay settle to the bottom of the liquid and discard that portion, while others prefer to shake it up and drink them together. Either is fine."

All in all, it truly is a sad state of affairs when the idea.gif of donning a hazmat suit simply to handle our food is not as outrageous as it once had been.

Here's a supporting article I found in an email from "Disaster Management":

Fukushima radioactive groundwater readings rocket
Tokyo (AFP) July 09, 2013 - Toxic radioactive substances in groundwater at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant have rocketed over the past three days, its Japanese operator said Tuesday, admitting it did not know where the leak was coming from. Samples taken on Monday showed levels of possibly cancer-causing caesium-134 were more than 90 times higher than they were on Friday, at 9,000 becquerels per litre, Tokyo Elect ... more: http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=00184kX4Z6AO...lJ6-3OQA==

Do you think we'll continue to see those snappy California Cheese commercials?
