UPDATED: Holy Fukushima – Radiation From Japan Is Already Killing North Americans
UPDATED: though this article is not written by nodisinfo.com it has been hotly contested by posters. Yet, the premise is held, here, as correct, which is that the radionuclides disseminated as a result of the Fukushima disaster are deadly and that toxicity from these substances is leading to an increase in disease and mortality.

This can be substantiated even with the modest amount of science available after the disaster. Furthermore, the Chernobyl catastrophe proves that radionuclides emitted as a result of the detonation of a nuclear power plant do cause an increase in morbidity and mortality: to deny this is ludicrous, as this is fully substantiated from previous cases, including Chernobyl and Three Mile Island, now Fukushima.
Mangano has shown an increase in disease (thyroid disorders) and infantile mortality in the first six months after the contamination of the American air, soil, and water systems from the Fukushima detonation. Regardless, this is for informational purposes only – no to ‘frighten’ anyone.
The premise of food contamination is also correct – no more Pacific Coast tuna for this author, Fukushima radiation being universally detected – and not confused or run off-track by the claim of it being ‘minimal’..(see Intelihub’s great assessment, as follows):
It should be kept in mind that from the outset every effort was made to suppress any information regarding the scope of this disaster. Do people really believe that there are not trolls and agents who work for the military-industrial complex, who work for the pro-nuclear industry groups, worth multi-billions, which are not attempting to disrupt the flow of information, argue, contest, belittle, demean, and more? Let the people decide from the information available what action, if any, to take.
“C’mon, there’s no way it’s harmful. Trust me: I know; I’m an expert.” Heard that before. Ask the people all over Europe about the suffering that was and is caused by Chernobyl – and that, too, was supposedly not going to be a big deal, unless you lived right next to it. Moreover, Fukushima is a disaster of a degree far greater than Chernobyl and it is ongoing. Nothing is contained – except any information about the potential scope of this catastrophe, which is being continuously minimized.
However, despite the persistence of naysayers, Fukushima toxicity is real and is having dire effects on Americans as well as Canadians. First hand experience: was in Anaheim when the first Fukushima nuclear cloud arrived. Gained 10 pounds by the time I got home (unheard of; weight is always 185-87; never fluctuations), abdominal girth was increased (pants tighter), and so tired had a hard time walking up steps. This happened to two of us, a man and a woman.
Upon interviewing Californians and people from other regions thought to be hit hard in the Fukushima aftermath, including WA state, New Mexico, and Texas, a trend was discovered. Sudden, unexplainable weight gain, exhaustion/fatigue, and in many cases thyroid nodules; in some cases swelling of the lymph nodes, almost a pre-lymphoma type of representation, all occurring within a year of the detonations.
This is a persistent pattern, especially for those exposed to the initial nuclear radiation clouds in the 30-day after math of the catastrophe. Let us hear from real people in the area and learn what they are experiencing, not merely skeptics, even trolls, who seek to derail this investigation.
The author is right that this is no conspiracy theory. There is an increase in stillbirths nation-wide post Fukushima, as there was post-nuclear bomb testing. Let us determine the scope of this crisis thoroughly and begin to take whatever actions are possible to protect the body as much as possible.
One issue: be sure to thoroughly was fresh leafy greens, including spinache, grown in the West Coast; consider soaking them in distilled water. DetoxiWash, highly effective, may also be added and/or calcium bentonite. The same should be done for strrawberries. These are among the most vulnerable for concentrating radionuclides.
You’re going to want to use every share button at the bottom of this article once you’re done reading, so get ready, it’s time to freak out: Maybe.
If you live on the west coast of Canada or the United States, you’re pretty much already screwed at this point thanks to the Japanese earthquake and tsunami of 2011. Radiation levels are already increasing in the food and water, babies born with thyroid issues linked to radiation are rising quickly and governments in Canada and the United States are raising the “acceptable levels” of certain toxic substances in the food being shipped in from Japan. This isn’t a conspiracy theory, this is happening and it’s happening right now.
The fancy little picture at the top of the article isn’t showing you the flow of happy fun time thoughts from Japan back in March of 2012, it’s showing you the flow of radiation from the Fukushima nuclear plant after the devastating earthquake and tsunami of 2011.
Yes, that sharp pain you just felt in your chest is the sudden realization that the image shows the radiation reaching almost past Hawaii more than a year ago. Do the math – If that radiation screamed across the Pacific Ocean that far in one year, just how far do you think it has gotten since then? Look at what World Truth TV is saying and then you decide.
Samples of milk taken across the United States have shown radiation at levels 2000 percent higher than EPA maximums. The reason that milk is so significant is that it is representative of the entire food supply.
According to an article published on Natural News, “Cows consume grass and are exposed to the same elements as food crops and water supplies. In other words, when cows’ milk starts testing positive for high levels of radioactive elements, this is indicative of radioactive contamination of the entire food supply.” The Food and Drug Administration and the Environmental Deception Protection Agency, instead of refusing to prohibit the sale of tainted foods and mandatory testing of foods produced and harvested from the Pacific Coast, have simply raised the “acceptable levels” of radioactive material in foods.
If that doesn’t scare the ever-living crap out of you, then take a look at the list of foods you are now supposed to be wary of, you know, for only the next 30,000 years.
How can we protect ourselves? First, be aware of what items are likely to be highly tainted.
1.) SEAFOOD: Question the origin of ALL seafood. Fish and crustaceans from the Pacific Ocean should all be considered to be poisoned with radiation.
2.) WATER: The rainfall and snowfall are all radiated. Do not drink any water that has not been filtered. The tap water that flows from your faucet has NOT been treated to rid it of radioactive particles. A recent report from the NY Times stated, “A rooftop water monitoring program managed by UC Berkeley’s Department of Nuclear Engineering detected substantial spikes in rain-borne iodine-131 during torrential downpours …
3.) DAIRY PRODUCTS: Milk and milk products from the West Coast states currently have the highest levels of radiation in North America.
4.) PRODUCE: Leafy Vegetables, Wines, Tomatoes, Strawberries….all produce from California or any other West Coast State are also likely to be tainted.
5.) MEAT: If an animal eats any leafy vegetable all along the West Coast, that animal has consumed radiation and is poisoned. This is any animal from cows, pigs, goats, sheep to wild deer and other game. If you eat the above foods from areas with high radiation levels, you are eating radiation and feeding it to your children. Slowly the radiation levels within your body will build up.
This is PERMANENT. Infant mortality rates across the United States have increased by more than 35% since the nuclear disaster, according to a court statement by Dr. Sherman with independent scientist Leuren Moret, MA, PhD (Editor’s note: infant mortality increased in infants born in the immediate aftermath of the disaster in areas of high exposure such as Washington State and California; an increase of 35% steadily has not been yet been fully documented). A study published in The International Journal of Medicine indicates that more than 20,000 deaths right here in North America can be directly attributed to the release of radioactive material from Fukushima (this study is a worthy one and should be read by all those who seek a more thorough understanding of this crisis). Radioactive isotopes of the type released from Fukushima have a half-life of 30,000 years. This means that we must permanently change the way we prepare our food.
- Wash your food with a natural type soap (Ecover or vegetable sulfate) and rinse it in filtered water.
- Be aware of the origins of your vegetables, fish, game and seafood.
- Keep abreast of radiation levels to help monitor where your food is acquired.
- Use only filtered water for drinking, cooking and ice.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but that one way trip to colonize Mars is looking pretty damn attractiveright now.
Commentary from nodisinfo.com
Cleansing fruit and vegetables does make a difference. Studies in Chernobyl contaminated regions have determined that three soaks of the vegetables in distilled water reduced the levels of radionuclides significantly, up to 90%.
Fukushima is causing devastation of the health of the people all over the world, but the main victims are those in Hawaii, Alaska, BC, Washington State, Oregon, California, and, of course, Japan.
Regarding radionuclides these are as a consequence of the explosion of a nuclear reactor rather than mere radioactive waves, particles. Upon ingestion, these particles pose a danger from auto-radiation. This has been demonstrated in monkey studies, where a mere few particles are enough to cause lung scarification and, ultimately, cancer.
Surveys have demonstrated an increase in the incidence of thyroid disorders, including thyroid cancer, globally, as a result of the increased radiation load. There is a great danger to the people of this earth, since radiation is continuously leaking into the Pacific Ocean and through mist and rain water, therefore, recontaminates the globe.
It is a real issue, which is cause subtle yet definitive damage and increased risk for certain diseases, especially in those areas most subject to the increases in radiation exposure.
Learn also about the fruit and vegetable soak with activated bentonite and more. Such activated bentonite in a spice oil base will reduce the levels of metallic radionuclides in the food. Bentonite binds irreversibly to these noxious, energetic, destructive metallic ions, reducing and/or eliminating their toxicity.
From ENEWS.com, a Japanese local and his fairly recent measurements:
A very small portion of the sample have been sent to a certain laboratory for analysis. [...]
On 6 Apr 2013, I measured radiation in front of a temple of Onoda area, Namie town of Fukushima prefecture Japan.
I monitored 7.97 micro Sievert per hour in air at chest hight standing on the grass.
I measured 86.09 micro Sievert per hour 1cm from road side dust. [...]
The monitoring place is 10km (corrected from 17 km) from Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear power plant. [...]
RE: thyroid cyst/adenoma rates being assessed near Fukushima -
Rates of thyroid problems in children near the nuclear plant are high
[...] Last December, the eldest of the two was diagnosed with adenoidal cysts, the prelude to a type of cancer that often strikes the salivary glands. “I was told by the doctor that it’s very rare,” [Yoji Fujimoto] says. [...]
“I’m convinced this is because of the Fukushima accident.” [...]
[Steve Wing, an epidemiologist at the University of North Carolina] says that parents like Mr Fujimoto do have reason to worry. “We know that doses to populations are both unquantified by the official agencies, that evidence suggests relatively high doses, and that children and women are more vulnerable to radiation. So the questions and deep concerns for the people in Fukushima will continue for the rest of their lives.” [...]
“I expect a growth in the numbers of thyroid cancers in Japan from next year,” [Dr Alexey Yablokov, a Russian biologist] said. [...]
Parents accuse government scientists of making their minds up before the [thyroid] survey began – Professor Suzuki’s team said last July that their aim was “to calm the anxiety of the population”
From Arnie Gunderson, Fairwinds -
Arnie Gundersen, Fairewinds chief engineer: For the people in Japan and people on the West Coast there is a wedge of radioactivity working its way across the Pacific — called a plume — of cesium-137, strontium, and other isotopes. The plume is about a year away from hitting the coast of the Pacific Northwest.
It’s not over, it’s not like it’s going to hit and go away. The nuclear plant is continuing to leak. That plume is 10 times more radioactive than the ocean was before (cesium in the ocean from bomb testing was the only source of radioactivity) and now it’s 10 times that — and likely to grow — because the Daiichi site is going to continue to leak into the environment for years to come.
I think what we all should demand is #1: Get rid of Tepco… we need a first rate engineering firm in there to do it…
The other thing people on the West Coast should demand is transparent analysis of fish. There’s no state organization that’s sampling the fish, no government is sampling the fish and telling people what the numbers are. If the government’s sampling it, they’re not telling anybody — and I’m uncomfortable with that.
I want to know what the number is, I think as citizens, our government owes it to us — to tell us how radioactive the fish are in the Pacific. We’re not getting that right now. There’s probably good science being done, but Citizens are not allowed to know what the government knows.

The Nuclear Industry and Health
AN UNEXPECTED MORTALITY INCREASE IN
THE UNITED STATES FOLLOWS ARRIVAL OF THE
RADIOACTIVE PLUME FROM FUKUSHIMA:
IS THERE A CORRELATION?
Joseph J. Mangano and Janette D. Sherman
The multiple nuclear meltdowns at the Fukushima plants beginning on
March 11, 2011, are releasing large amounts of airborne radioactivity that has
spread throughout Japan and to other nations; thus, studies of contamination
and health hazards are merited. In the United States, Fukushima fallout
arrived just six days after the earthquake, tsunami, and meltdowns. Some
samples of radioactivity in precipitation, air, water, and milk, taken by the
U.S. government, showed levels hundreds of times above normal; however,
the small number of samples prohibits any credible analysis of temporal
trends and spatial comparisons.
U.S. health officials report weekly deaths by age in 122 cities, about 25 to 35 percent of the national total. Deaths rose 4.46 percent from 2010 to 2011 in the 14 weeks after the arrival of Japanese fallout, compared with a 2.34 percent increase in the prior 14 weeks. The number of infant deaths after Fukushima rose 1.80 percent, compared with a previous 8.37 percent decrease. Projecting these figures for the entire United States yields 13,983 total deaths and 822 infant deaths in excess of the expected. These preliminary data need to be followed up, especially in the light of similar preliminary U.S. mortality findings for the four months after Chernobyl fallout arrived in 1986, which approximated final figures.
