Deadly radiation levels of up to 9.4 Sieverts per hour have been recorded at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant – enough to kill a person in less than an hour if directly exposed, local media reports.

The mortal radiation reading was taken in a small room, using a remote-controlled robot, where a pipe leads to the containment vessel of the No. 2 reactor at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, JIJI Press 
reported, citing Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO).

The reading of 9.4 sieverts (Sv) per hour was taken during the September 4-25 checks. According to the operator, the highest levels of contamination were measured on the floor. TEPCO did not offer any further details. The company will start the decontamination process that it hopes to complete by December.

Immediate radiation exposure around the Fukushima nuclear power following the deadly incident reached 400 millisieverts (mSv) per hour in places. One millisievert is a thousandth of a sievert, therefore the new 9.4 Sv reading is 23.5 times higher than the radiation level recorded in March, 2011.

Just to compare, the typical average dose for a person is about 0.0036 Sv. per year. Combined career exposure limits for 
NASA's male astronauts by the time they are 55 years old is 4.00 Sv.

Earlier this week, a government commissioned study, said that nearly 40 percent of those involved in the emergency assistance operation at the Fukushima plant in March 2011 suffered radiation exposure exceeding the yearly public norm.


A magnitude 9 earthquake triggered a tsunami that struck Fukushima on March 11, 2011. The disaster caused a triple meltdown at the nuclear plant, where so far almost 45,000 workers have been involved in a clean-up and decommissioning effort that is expected to cost billions of dollars and take about 40 years.




SURPRISE! You're Eating Fukushima Radiation; Bloody Cancerous Tumors in Fish & Seafood


31 October, 2015


Americans and Canadians have been eating radioactive fish filled with bloody, cancerous tumors, as a result of contamination with radiation in the Pacific ocean from the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan.

In March, 2011 an earthquake off the coast of Japan caused a Tsunami which
hit the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant, causing three reactors to melt down and explode.


This is what the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant in Japan looked like Before / After the explosions and Meltdowns.

BEFORE

AFTER

As you may notice in the images above, the Fukushima Daichi Power Plant is located on the coastline of Japan. Like all coastlines, the ground slopes toward the ocean. This created a problem that the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) didn't tell anyone about until a full YEAR after the disaster took place: 

Ground water, flowing from inland, was seeping beneath the blown-up rectors, coming into contact with the melted-down reactor cores, becoming highly radioactive, then flowing into the Pacific Ocean. 300 Ton of this radioactive water has been seeping into the Pacific Ocean EVERY DAY since March 15, 2011. Nothing has stopped it and the flow continues to this very day, October 31, 2015. Here's how it is taking place:



TEPCO wanted to build a "freeze wall" (shown in the graphic above) to freeze the ground and the water, to stop the flow.  They tried.  They failed.  The radiation and heat coming from the melted down reactor cores - which melted through the reactor and melted into the ground - is making the water too hot.  They can't freeze it.  There is no "wall" to stop the flow!

The flow of radioactive water into the Pacific is contaminating and killing sea life. Fish caught locally near the power plant and out in the deep sea, have all tested positive for radiation contamination.  Other fish, Shrimp, clams and such, caught hundreds of miles offshore, have also tested 100% positive for radiation contamination. In fact, of 15 Blue-Fin Tuna caught off the coast of California, 100% tested positive for radioactive substances!

Hundreds-of-thousands of these sea creatures have already died from the radiation and millions more are sick and dying to this day. People who consume this seafood are ALSO getting contaminated by radiation.

The prevailing ocean currents off the east coast of Japan are well documented by Oceanographers. Here is what the prevailing ocean currents look like:



Generally speaking, two surface currents — one from the south, called the Kuroshio, and one from the north, called the Oyashio — meet just off the coast of Japan at about 40 degrees north latitude. The currents merge to form the North Pacific current and surge eastward. Fukushima lies at 37 degrees north latitude. Thousands of miles later, the currents hit an upwelling just off the western coast of the United States and split. One, the Alaska current, turns north up the coast toward British Columbia and Southeast Alaska. The other, the California current, turns south and heads down the western seaboard of the U.S. These currents are spreading the radioactive material from Japan.

As of June, 2015, the radiation in the Pacific Ocean reached the US West Coast; the seafood you've been eating from the Pacific ocean is loaded with Cesium-137 and Strontium-90. Both radioactive.  Strontium-90 mimics calcium.  It ends up getting deposited in human bones, where the radiation wreaks havoc with bone marrow, causing bone cancers and blood cancers like Leukemia.

The radiation in the fish is so terrible that wild-caught Alaskan Salmon, Pacific Herring and Canadian white fish are being found bloody, with cancerous tumors throughout their bodies.

The migration patterns of Pacific salmon explains why. The graphic below shows the migration patterns of Salmon:



In a nutshell, Salmon ride the Alaska current and follow its curve past Sitka, Yakutat, Kodiak and the Aleutian Islands. Most often, it’s the Chinook, Coho and Sockeye Salmon migration patterns that range farthest. Chum and Pink Salmon seem to stay closer to home. Regardless of how far out each salmon species ventures into the Pacific, each fish hitches a ride back to its home rivers and spawning grounds on the North Pacific current, the same one pulling the Fukushima radioactive materials eastward.
We all know too much exposure to nuclear waste can cause cancer. And many understand that certain chemicals, such as cesium-137 and strontium-90, contained in said waste products can accumulate in fish by being deposited in bones and muscle permanently.

Alaska salmon as well as all types of Pacific seafood (Shrimp, clams, scallops, squid, etc.) are being tainted with radioactive contamination. So are the people who consume them. What do you think happens to people who eat radiation-contaminated food? Worse, what happens to people who eat cancerous tumors without knowing what they are?

The government and the nuclear power industry claim we have nothing to worry about. When you see the photos below, you may want decide for yourself if they're telling the truth.

According to the Local Environmental Observers (LEO) Network in Hydaburg, Alaska, they have found strange growths in the flesh or meat of salmon. "We were fishing for Cohos (silver salmon) at the mouth of the Hydaburg River with line and reel." said Brian Holter, Jr. who said that eight fish were filled up inside with strange growths that were either white or pink in color. "On the outside the fish looked fine. The growths looked kind of like individual little salmon eggs, and about the same size. their people were seeing the same kind of growths in their fish as well." he continued. This is what the tumors inside three separate Salmon looked like:
Cancerous Tumors in Salmon

The map below will give readers an understanding of the proximity of Hydaburg, Alaska to the Fukushima, Japan disaster site, to demonstrate how far the effects of Fukushima radiation have traveled in the four years since the disaster began:



Other volunteers from LEO have come across even more disturbing cancerous tumors and bloody lesions on fish. According to another LEO volunteer, Sam Kunaknana, in Nuiqsut, Alaska, for the past few months they have been catching sick fish on Nigliq Channel and upstream from Nigliq Channel to the Colville River. The fish have had bloody lesions and tumors on them.
Fish w/Lesions:




Sadly, the images above aren't nearly the worst of it. Other fishermen and even Marine Biologists have caught other fish showing classic signs of radiation-caused cancerous tumors. "In all the years I’ve been fishing I never caught any fish like this. Caught 3 more sick fish with same markings and this time one had some kind of growths coming out from its mouth. Most people in our community eat this fish." Sam Kunaknana continued.



While there is no way to tell exactly where in the Pacific Ocean these fish have been, one thing is for certain - they're ALL from the Pacific Ocean. Yet numerous "scientists" have repeatedly stated that "dilution is the solution" for the Fukushima pollution. These "scientists" say the Pacific Ocean is so big and has so much water, the radiation spewing from Fukushima can't possibly be bad enough to affect humans. The pictures in this story seem to prove those "scientists" wrong.

Certainly, the Pacific Ocean is huge. Yet as the map above shows, distance from Fukushima did not seem to matter with the fish caught near Hydaburg, Alaska.

The map below, shows the location of the other LEO volunteer, Sam Kunaknana, in Nuiqsut, Alaska, thousands of miles farther away from Fukushima than Hyanburg. In fact, Nuiqsut, Alaska is about as far north as one can get from Fukushima, but the radiation has gotten there too. Nuiqsut, AK Map:



We've all heard for years that sharks don't get cancer. Well, when they swim around the Pacific Ocean nowadays, the radiation is so terrible that even sharks are getting cancer! Recently, researchers in Australia noticed a large tumor protruding from the mouth of a great white shark, as well as another mass on the head of a bronze whaler shark. The tumor on the Great White was a historic first.



The great white's tumor measured 1 foot (30 centimeters) long and 1 foot wide, according to a study describing the tumors published online in the Journal of Fish Diseases. "This was a very unusual sight as we have never before seen a white shark with tumors," said Rachel Robbins, a study co-author and shark biologist at the Fox Shark Research Foundation, near Adelaide, in southern Australia.

In another historic first, this Coral fish from the Great Barrier Reef in Australia has been found with . . . skin cancer along its head and face; exactly the type which affects . . . humans! The only explanation for a fish getting human-like skin cancer is exposure to radiation.



It's not just fish that are showing the effects of radiation poisoning. Other creatures in the sea AND on land, are showing the signs as well.

Star Fish - are supposed to have FIVE legs.  The shape of a star.  Look what radiation did to this one:



Tuna



Walruses






Shrimp


According to the Journal of Wildlife Diseases, scientists from United States Geological Survey (USGS) and Alaska Department of Fish & Game, Jan 2015: Alopecia (hair loss) has been observed in several marine mammal species… From 2012, we observed an alopecia syndrome in polar bears from the southern Beaufort Sea of Alaska that presented as bilaterally asymmetrical loss of guard hairs and thinning of the undercoat around the head, neck, and shoulders, which, in severe cases, was accompanied by exudation and crusted skin lesions. Alopecia was observed in 49 (3.45%) of the bears sampled during 1,421 captures [peaking in] 2012 (28%)

Some have said that there are explanations other than radiation for these ailments. Certainly that might be worthy of consideration. Yet, how many of these so called "ailments" can cross-species? It is not just fish being affected. Mammals are, too. Fish, Seals, Walruses and even Polar Bears; ALL of them are suffering bloody lesions, some suffering external tumors and others are losing their fur - hair loss is one of the first signs of radiation poisoning, even in humans.

US GOVERNMENT HAS DONE -- NOTHING

The 'federal government' of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA has done absolutely NOTHING to test for radiation in the Pacific Ocean. Nothing.

Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service confirm they "have not tested for radiation and have no plans to do so in the future."

A FOIA request encompassing the entire Department of the Interior, via the Office of the Secretary, resulted in being told "The office of the Secretary does not have any records relating to your request."

The Federal Aviation Administration FOIA response was "FAA is not involved."

The FOIA response from the Nuclear Regulatory Agency was "NRC does not conduct the types of tests in your FOIA request."

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) replied "We do not conduct such tests."

The Environmental Protection Agency replied, "Please understand that these reports take time to create. Report 154 is currently under review at our laboratory and will be published once the review is complete." (That report is over a year old and they still haven't reviewed it yet???)

The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) replied they want $7,098.84 to fill the request. Their charges are as follows:

So, there you have it. For four+ years, the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant disaster has been spewing deadly radioactive material into the Pacific Ocean and for three years, the agencies above have done nothing. Without admitting they have done nothing, NOAA wants $7,098.84 tomerely LOOK to see if they have any records relating to a request! In the meantime, fish from the Pacific Ocean are contaminated with -- and dying from -- Fukushima radiation and that means the radiation is in the seafood that YOU, your family, maybe even your cats and dogs are eating.

The next time you hear anyone from 'government' say "We have no reason to believe there is any radiation hazard" bear in mind it is because they are not testing for it. That's why they have no information . . . . . and . . . . conveniently . . . . "no reason to believe" there is any danger.

Yet government did take -some- action with respect to radiation;  they raised the definition of "safe" exposure!   Yes, you read that correctly. 
  • A nearly 1000-fold increase for exposure to strontium-90;
  • A 3000 to 100,000-fold hike for exposure to iodine-131; and
  • An almost 25,000 rise for exposure to radioactive nickel-63.
The new radiation guidelines would also allow long-term cleanup thresholds thousands of times more lax than anything EPA has ever judged safe in the past.

And see this.

Indeed, some government scientists and media shills are now “reexamining” old studies that show that radioactive substances like plutonium cause cancer to argue that they  help preventcancer.

It is not just bubbleheads like Ann Coulter saying this. Government scientists from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratories and pro-nuclear hacks like Lawrence Solomon are saying this.

In other words, this is a concerted propaganda campaign to cover up the severity of a major nuclear accident by raising acceptable levels of radiation and saying that a little radiation is good for us. 

As of October 30, 2015, (yesterday) the Japan Times reported that the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) has detected radiation at 9.4 Sieverts outside Reactor containment vessel #2.  This amount of radiation is absolutely deadly to anyone exposed for 45 minutes.  This latest development has scuttled TEPCO's plans to decommission what's left of that exploded reactor because no one can be near enough to it to disassemble the wreckage. 

If this situation wasn't so pathetic, it would be laughable. Folks on the west coast of North America might want to consider their outdoor activities. If YOU go swimming in the same water these fish swam in, YOU could come out looking like they look! As for everyone else, head-on-out to your local supermarket or restaurant and eat-up! The "government' says it's safe and they _never_ lie!
