2nd Great Northern Hemisphere Hormesis experiment
“Greetings, fellow participants in the 2nd Great Northern Hemisphere Hormesis (GNHH) experiment. Ann Coulter is our gracious host; while our proud sponsors are the General Electric Corporation (GE) and the Tokyo Elecric Power Company (TEPCO) Fukushima complex. GE “brings good things to life” and TEPCO, “emphasizing fine-tuned service, supports our comfortable lifestyle”. The 1st GNNH experiment was sponsored by the now defunct USSR at the Chernobyl, Ukraine plant. Those not wishing to participate are advised to relocate to Sydney, Santiago or Buenos Aires.”
“Today, the GNHH experiment families are separating into two groups, the ‘Maximizer’ Team and the ‘Controller’ Team. Maximizers should drink the rainwater, eat plenty of large leaf vegetables, purchase free range chicken, drink plenty of milk, eat shallow water fish, enjoy the cream cheese, and avoid alcohol. Expectant and nursing mothers should take their prenatal vitamins, without iodine (KI). Controllers should double their normal RDA multivitamin/mineral intake, purchase grain-fed chicken, drink bottled or well water, select the sharp (aged) cheese, order the canned peas and select well aged red wines.
“Today, the Maximizers will be enjoying spinach and argula salad, borsht, oysters Rockefeller and the Kobe boeuf wellington with cream sauce. Maximizer desert dessert selections include cheesecake, cream puffs and berries in a rich cream sauce. Those insisting on alcohol will be served an excellent boujoule nouveau.
“The Controllers will select a main course of arroz con pollo, grouper or Argentinian-Style Beef with Chimichurri Sauce. Soup choices will consist of consommé and lentil. A cucumber and olive salad, generously sprinkled with Reggianito will be served. Our featured dessert is Brigadeiros served with Brazilian Daterra coffee. Our vast selection, of finely aged red wines, will enhance your dining experience.”

In an interview with CNN on June 7, nuclear engineer Arnold Gunderson states that, based on measurements of radionuclides in carfilters, he estimates that citizens on the Pacific northwest coast inhaled approximately five “hot particles” each day from Fukushima emissions in April, while people around Fukushima were breathing around ten ‘Hot Particles’ per day. These ‘Hot Particles’ can lodge in lungs, digestive tract or bones and over time cause cancers. They may be too small to be detected with regular Geiger counters:
