Radiation Food Lab By Peter Daley, Radiation Station Sunshine Coast Australia

This detailed and multi-sourced information and documentation is one of the most comprehensive sources for food and drink radiation testing results conducted and compiled since the triple meltdowns began at Fukushima Daiichi in Japan March 11, 2011. Radiation Food Lab will be updated with new test results continuously through the comments section below.

Why test food for radioactive contamination?

Because governments have deceived the public about food safety radiation levels worldwide.
They first release an article like the one below. I am using the European Union as an example here:

“EU boosts food import controls after Japanese nuclear disaster. The European Union is to step up controls on food imports from Japan in the wake of the nuclear accident at Fukushima – but stressed there was no evidence that consumers in the region were at risk from radiation-contaminated food.

“The EU ruling insists that all products from these prefectures are tested before leaving Japan and said they will be subject to random testing in the bloc. Japanese authorities will have to provide a declaration confirming products do not contain radioactive elements – called radionuclides – that exceed EU maximum levels. The Commission highlighted radionuclides iodine-131, caesium-134 and caesium-137.”
http://www.foodproductiondaily.com/Quality-Safety/EU-boosts-food-import-controls-after-Japanese-nuclear-disaster

This makes you feel warm and cosy inside, because you think your government is looking after you and your family. This article “EU boosts food import controls after Japanese nuclear disaster” is a clever deception because they then proceed to quietly raise the EU maximum safety levels by 20x for caesium-134 and caesium-137. Governments worldwide have used this same tactic.
http://foodfreedom.wordpress.com/2011/04/04/eu-secretly-ups-cesium-safety-level-in-food-20-fold/

They then tell the public everything is testing below safety levels, nothing to worry about!

Here is another example, Japan this time.

If you do purchase good food testing radiation contamination equipment, look at the old pre-Fukushima radioactive food contamination safety levels, as a possible guide. If you can purchase a non-contaminated food item do so, as any level of radioactive food contamination poses a risk.

Sunshine Coast Computer Club president Peter Daley So what does this mean?
Radiation contamination bio-accumulates over time, particularly in meat, dairy and seafood grown and harvested in radiation contaminated areas. Ingested radiation from contaminated food radiates body cells with high doses of radiation for long periods of time.

You can’t rely on governments, so it is important for your family’s health and safety that you take the time and effort to research this subject. In summary, for your family’s safety, only purchase food and goods that are not from contaminated areas. Also, research dietary systems that help remove or protect your body from radioactive contamination.

An Oncologist in Japan has been doing ongoing research on the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster site workers, and found he is getting very good results with Liposomal Vitamin C. It appears to be healing a lot of radiation damage to their bodies. Liposomal Vitamin C is a combination of vitamin C and lecithin. This combination seems to improve the up take of vitamin C by 80%! It maybe a good idea for you and your family to research taking this to fortify against the effects of radiation. He has been trying to encourage the Japanese government to educate their people about this treatment.

If you are living in Southern Hemisphere, it is suggested at present, to eat locally grown food. A lot of Northern Hemisphere food is safe to eat. It is just hard to tell what is and what isn’t, without government or private testing. The dynamics of the situation suggests that Southern Hemisphere grown food is more likely to be less contaminated. No significant detections have been made in any locally grown food, that has been tested so far here, at our testing lab in Australia. Be careful of food products labelled “Made from Australian and imported ingredients.”

Further Reading
Even low-level radioactivity is damaging, http://www.sc.edu/news/newsarticle.php?nid=5214#.UKlCJYbAHov

According to the Petkau Effect long term low level radiation can potentially be more dangerous than a short high dose.

Latest International reports of radioactive isotope contamination of food items

This is by no means a complete list. If you know of a reported detection that is not on this list please let us know by posting a comment.

NOTE: A lot of food and environmental detection reports tend to concentrate on Cesium detection. This is because it is relatively easy to test for, and detect. If Cesium is present in a test result, there is a possibility that other types of radioactive isotopes are also present but not reported. Fallout is a dirty mixture of isotopes. It is not just Cesium. Some of the other isotope contaminants, particularly the dangerous Alpha emitters, need more specialized and expensive equipment to detect their presence.

Ingested radiation from contaminated food or water radiates body cells with high doses of radiation for long periods of time. This means any ingestion of radioactive isotopes increases risk to ones well-being. Children and pregnant women are far more sensitive to the effects of radiation.

OCEANS & SEAS REPORTS

OCEAN DUMPING

Submitted on 2014/01/03 at 6:17 pm

OCEAN DUMPING

9 May 2001 – Newly released documents indicate the Navy dumped far more nuclear waste than it’s ever acknowledged in a major commercial fishery just 30 miles west of San Francisco.

Extracts:

The Navy’s own documents, declassified at the request of SF Weekly, show that significant amounts of the nuclear bomb component plutonium, which has a half-life of 24,000 years, and similarly long-lived “mixed fission” products were used at the nuclear laboratory at Hunters Point.

An entire radioactive ship, the 10,000-ton aircraft carrier USS Independence, is believed to have been sunk in or near the waste site. The carrier itself was clearly “hot” when it went down. It had been used as an atomic bomb target and a nuclear laboratory, and it was packed full of fresh fission products and other radiological waste at the time it sank.

The simple truth is that no one can say with any degree of certainty whether the Farallon Islands Nuclear Waste Site and the fish taken there are safe, because no one has fully studied them.

Extracts:

From 1946 to 1970, federal records show, 55-gallon drums and other containers of nuclear waste were pitched into the Atlantic and Pacific at dozens of sites off California, Massachusetts and a handful of other states.

How many dump sites are there? Over the years, federal estimates have ranged from 29 to more than 60.

20th December 2013 – USS Calhoun County sailors dumped thousands of tons of radioactive waste into ocean.

Extracts:

For up to 15 years after World War II, the crew of Albernaz’s ship, the USS Calhoun County, dumped thousands of tons of radioactive waste into the Atlantic Ocean, often without heeding the simplest health precautions, according to Navy documents and Tampa Bay Times interviews with more than 50 former crewmen.

Not all of them sank. A few pushed back against the frothing ocean, bobbing in the waves like a drowning man. Then shots would ring out from a sailor with a rifle at the fantail. And the sea would claim the bullet-riddled drum.

    17th April 2014 – Japan Radiation Embargoed Food List

    Extracts:

    The Japanese government has been wooing the media with claims that all the contamination in the food supply has miraculously just gone away. This is of course not exactly what is going on.

    What is not mentioned is how many foods are still being held back from sale and that they are not just in Fukushima prefecture.

    Spot checks won’t catch all contaminated products. Bulk testing can miss a highly contaminated item mixed in with uncontaminated items. Anything below 100 bq/kg is permitted to be sold.

    17th February 2014 – New Independent Fukushima Food Contamination Results

    Extracts:

    People in Japan early on realized they needed to take things into their own hands if they wanted to know the conditions around them and what their risk factors were. Citizen labs have been set up in Japan to allow people to test their own food.

    While the government in Japan (and elsewhere) have insisted anything below legal intervention levels of food contamination are “safe”, the public and many NGOs have disputed this. Ongoing problems with cesium in children’s urine belies the govt claim that all is ok. Two sets of standards have evolved. The one the government uses and the one the public uses to scrutinize their food supply.

    Out of the readings that were frequently positive are citrus fruits, that were found to be contaminated along with persimmons and kiwi fruit. There were also many negative, no contamination findings for foods including those in Fukushima.

    5th April 2014 – Tepco plans to discharge pumped groundwater to the sea this coming June

    Extracts:

    The pumped groundwater contains significant level of radiation as well, however it would not be filtered before discharging. (cf, [Coincidence ?] 3 highest densities of Tritium are “exactly 1,200,000 Bq/m3″ in groundwater bypass.

    Comment:

    There should be an international effort to stop this from happening. At present there is a lot of Nuclear industry propaganda making out that Tritium is harmless. This video brings up a lot of independent research on the biological effects radioactive Tritium releases. That Tritium is something to be very concerned about. It is not just large amounts of Tritium that will be released into the Pacific Ocean!

    29th March 2014 – Researchers consider: How risky is that radiation?

    Extracts:

    The baby teeth of kids living near the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant contained radioactive Strontium-90 – which can cause bone cancer and leukemia – at levels nearly one-third higher than in the baby teeth of other California kids, says a controversial study released last week.

    Studies from France and Germany suggest that kids living within 3 miles of nuclear plants have double the risk of developing acute leukemia as those living farther away, and that the peak impact is on children aged 2 to 4; but the U.S. government’s take has historically been, “Don’t worry, be happy.”

    5th March 2014 – Fishing for data in the radioactive waters off Fukushima

    Extract:

    With help from fisherman and citizen scientists, researchers in Japan and the U.S. are tracking the nucleotides in the ocean creatures who swim in the plume of water tainted with radiation from Fukushima. Their research is part of a long-term effort to figure out when — if ever — certain fish will be safe to eat. Science correspondent Miles O’Brien reports.

    Comment:

    You continually hear this statement on the news, and in press releases.

    “The fish tested well below safety levels.”

    Governments around the world raised the safety levels massively, soon after the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster. These safety levels are an outright deception to fool the public. Unless you take the time to do the research, you would not know how deceitful the present actionable, or safety levels are.

    Here are just two examples to make this clear.

    Their testing only focuses on Cesium, and conveniently leaves out the other bio-accumulating radioactive contaminants. The fallout from the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster is a dirty mixture of different isotopes, not just Cesium! A lot of these radioactive isotopes are chemically toxic, as well as radioactive.

    CANADA

    25th March 2014 – Alberta student’s science project finds high radiation levels in grocery-store seafood

    Extracts:

    The Grade 10 student from Grande Prairie said she was shocked to discover that, in the wake of the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) stopped testing imported foods for radiation in 2012.

    “Some of the kelp that I found was higher than what the International Atomic Energy Agency sets as radioactive contamination, which is 1,450 counts over a 10-minute period,” she said. “Some of my samples came up as 1,700 or 1,800.”

    “More than 200 food samples were tested and all were found to be below Health Canada’s actionable levels for radioactivity,” the CFIA states in a February 2014 posting on its website. “As such, enhanced import controls have been lifted and no additional testing is planned.”

    Comment:

    Same story book reply you get from governments. Tell you it is not detected at “actionable levels.”

    1. These isotopes are biologically chemically toxic, as well as radioactive.

    2. Actionable levels were much lower pre-Fukushima.

    PACIFIC OCEAN

    16th March 2014 – “Squelching Efforts to Measure Fukushima Meltdown”

    Extracts:

    As a senior scientist at the Japanese government’s Meteorological Research Institute, he said levels of radioactive cesium 137 in the surface water of the Pacific Ocean could be 10,000 times as high as contamination after Chernobyl, the world’s worst nuclear accident.

    Off the record, university researchers in Japan say that even now, three years after the triple meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi plant, they feel under pressure to play down the impact of the disaster.

    “Getting involved in this sort of research is dangerous politically,” said Joji Otaki, a biologist at Japan’s Ryukyu University who has written papers suggesting that radioactivity at Fukushima has triggered inherited deformities in a species of butterfly.

    Comment:

    It appears the Japanese government complained to The New York Times about the original headline to this article, because on the 17th March this correction was added by the NYTimes.

    Correction: March 17, 2014

    “An earlier version of the headline with this article misstated the actions of the Japanese government. There are deep differences over how to determine the health impact of the Fukushima disaster. The authorities are not ‘‘squelching” efforts to measure the effects of the accident.”

    The new New York Times headline is, “Concerns Over Measurement of Fukushima Fallout”

    Extracts:

    Mousseau has made numerous trips to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone and Fukushima – making 896 inventories at Chernobyl and 1,100 biotic inventories in Fukushima as of July 2013 – to test the effect of radiation on plants and animals.

    Indeed, Mousseau found – in studies of plants, insects and mammals – that:

    Most organisms studied show significantly increased rates of genetic damage in direct proportion to the level of exposure to radioactive contaminants

    Many organisms show increased rates of deformities and developmental abnormalities in direct proportion to contamination levels

    Many organisms show reduced fertility rates

    Many organisms show reduced life spans

    Many organisms show reduced population sizes

    Biodiversity is significantly decreased many species locally extinct

    Mutations are passed from one generation to the next, and show signs of accumulating over time

    Mutations are migrating out of affected areas into populations that are not exposed (i.e. population bystander effects)

    11th March 2014 – Fukushima – The Perfect Crime?

    Extracts:

    Multiple hazardous readings of suspected Fukushima radiation have been detected in air, rain, snow, and surf in California and across the nation. The high radioactivity findings came during tests of air across America, Pacific Ocean surf south of San Francisco and Santa Cruz, rain in Death Valley and nearby Las Vegas, and in the soil of California’s marijuana-growing heartland in Humboldt County.

    EnviroReporter.com has also learned that soil in the most marijuana-intensive growing region of California is hot with radionuclides that could have come from nowhere but Fukushima.

    Amateur radiation sleuth Michael Van Broekhoven gathered two soil samples from near Willow Creek and from “commercially available top soil in Northern California.” Both samples, collected in April 2013, tested positive for
    cesium-134 and cesium-137.

    The Willow Creek soil sample had 0.962 Becquerels per kilogram (Bq/kg) of cesium-134 and 13.39 Bq/kg of cesium-137 according to the lab gamma spectroscopy analysis done for Van Broekhoven in May 2013 by Cinnaminson, New Jersey-headquartered EMSL Analytical, Inc.. The store-bought dirt had even more
    Cs-134 with 1.11 Bq/kq though less Cs-137 at 4.10 Bq/kg.

    12th March 2014 – Troubled waters: Nuclear radiation found in B.C. may pose health concerns. Discovery of Fukushima radioactivity raises concerns for local marine life, and the effect it may have on humans.

    Extract:

    Examination of a soil sample from Kilby Provincial Park, near Agassiz, has for the first time in this province found Cesium 134, further evidence of Fukushima radioactivity being transported to Canada by air and water.

    The models suggests that in 30 years, Cesium 137 levels in the whales will exceed the Canadian guideline of 1,000 becquerels per kilogram for consumption of seafood by humans — 10 times the Japanese guideline.

    The results raise concerns for aboriginal people who maintain a diet heavy in fish.

    “We might expect similar results because the diet of First Nation communities is based on seafood,” Alava said. “Humans at the top of the food web can perhaps see increasing levels in the future.”

    The plume is predicted to reach the US West Coast in April 2014 and it will be “detectable but not harmful. ”Samples taken off the coast of Vancouver Island in June 2013 show the plume has reached it, but the observed concentrations are at most 1 Bq/m3. In other words, 7400 times less than the EPA’s maximum concentrations for drinking water so the levels are not harmful for humans or sea life.

    My opinion:

    They have done base line testing, which is great. Lets look at the finer details.

    The USA EPA recently raised the drinking water safety level from 3 pCi/Liter of Cesium 134/137 to 200 pCi/Litre, which is equivalent to 7,400 Bq per cubic meter.

    (Multiply by a 1,000 to get per cubic meter amounts.)
    Pre-Fukushima safety level, 3 pCi/ltr = 0.111 Bq/Ltr
    New safety level, 200 pCi/ltr = 7.4 Bq/Ltr
    7.4/0.111 = 66.6

    So this new standard is 66.6 times greater than the pre-Fukushima level. It has been a common ploy by governments worldwide to quietly raise the safety levels during events like Fukushima, As detectable levels increase they can tell you everything is OK, because it tested below the new much higher government set safety level.

    The organization doing the testing here is independent of government. They haven’t created this new standard the US government has.

    Very small amounts of contamination in sea water can bio-accumulate thousands of times through the food chain in sea food. Testing the seafood will provide the important information on bio-accumulation, plus whether it is hazardous for human consumption. Sea food testing is what is needed at present. It may be excellent information for a scientists to know how much contamination is in the sea water. Is your child going to drink sea water? Right now, mums and dads would rather know what contamination is in the seafood, and is it safe for their family to consume!

    The plume may not have arrived yet, but the contaminated fish may have, plus significant bio-accumulation could go on for a long time.

    Watch this 10 minute short video to get up to speed quickly on food testing, and safety levels. Independent research is suggesting much lower safety levels for Cesium contamination, particularly for pregnant women and children.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9d3I3S99Dc&feature=player_embedded

    A lot of food and environmental detection reports tend to concentrate on Cesium detection. This is because it is relatively easy to test for, and detect. If Cesium is present in a test result, there is a possibility that other types of radioactive isotopes are also present but not reported. Fallout is a dirty mixture of isotopes.

    8th March 2014 – Proven: Pilliga groundwater contaminated by Santos CSG

    Extracts:

    Documents obtained by The Wilderness Society show that groundwater in the Pilliga has been contaminated by Santos CSG operations.

    Uranium levels recorded in the groundwater as a result of CSG activities are at 20 times the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.

    The NSW EPA have confirmed the contamination event, but failed to act with any proper legal force, choosing to fine Santos only $1,500 dollars.

    On Friday, EPA chief environmental regulator Mark Gifford confirmed the contamination was caused by water leaking from the pond and that lead, aluminium, arsenic, barium, boron, nickel and uranium had been detected in an aquifer at levels ”elevated when compared to livestock, irrigation and health guidelines’

    Comment By Lock the Gate:

    Uranium levels recorded in the groundwater as a result of CSG activities are at 20 times the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines. It is the nightmare that the communities of the north west dreaded, and we hope that the contamination is contained and does no harm. Groundwater is the lifeblood of towns and rural businesses and the worst fears of local farmers are being realised.

    6th March 2014 – China Syndrome Town

    Extracts:

    China Syndrome Town is a true tale of greed, corruption, and malfeasance that could have real life consequences for the Los Angeles region and its residents.

    EnviroReporter.com exposes a new twist on these plots that would keep the Santa Susana Field Laboratory radioactive and chemically contaminated, saving the polluters hundreds of millions. If lab owner Boeing, government agencies, and astroturfers are successful, the toxic land could become Glow in the Dark Park or a new Chumash gambling casino.

    Hirsch, an UC Santa Cruz lecturer on nuclear policy, pointed out that the 1959 partial meltdown of the Sodium Reactor Experiment, while smaller in size than the partial meltdown of Three Mile Island twenty years later, spewed out hundreds of times more radiation because the experimental SRE wasn’t fortified against disaster like TMI was with its concrete superstructure.

    Rocketdyne Cleanup Coalition member Barbara Johnson began her comments with a reminder of what the fuss was all about. “I have lived since 1970 just below the contaminated site. I have had cancer; my son has had cancer, way too many of my neighbors have as well.” Johnson reminded the DOE of previous health studies that found elevated rates for key cancers in the offsite population closest to the site compared to people living further away.

    Comment:

    The site is one of the most radiological and chemically polluted places in the USA. It is just 30 miles, or 48 km northwest of Downtown Los Angeles. These excellent articles expose the attempted coverup, and corruption for all to see.

    25th February 2014 – Health risk or not? Cesium levels high in hundreds of Fukushima reservoirs

    Extracts:

    Very high levels of accumulated radioactive cesium have been detected in the mud of hundreds of reservoirs used to irrigate farmland in Fukushima Prefecture, where agriculture is a key industry.

    A joint survey by the prefectural government and a branch office of the farm ministry found that the levels exceed 8,000 becquerels per kilogram of soil in 576 reservoirs. In 14 of those cases, the level tops 100,000 becquerels.

    The survey covered 1,939 reservoirs, or slightly more than half of the 3,730 in Fukushima Prefecture for agricultural use.

    The remaining 468 reservoirs are located outside the evacuation order zones and still supplying water to rice paddies and other farmland. Those areas are mainly located in the central part of the prefecture, including the cities of Fukushima and Date.

    However, the Environment Ministry says it has no plans to dredge the reservoirs to remove the contaminated mud.

    Myotoishi reservoir in the Takagi district of Motomiya, some 55 kilometers west of the stricken Fukushima plant, had the highest contamination at 370,000 becquerels.

The sample of black sand from Namie had been reported last year at 1530 Bq/g of radiocesium. The 90Sr level for this sample was 348 Bq/g. An air filter sample taken in June 2011 in Fukushima City was 2792 Bq/filter radiocesium, and 668 Bq/filter 90Sr. These were quantified against a 2700 Bq 90Sr source from Oak Ridge, TN, USA.

    21st February 2014 – EU to relax regulations on Japanese food imports.

    Extract:

    “The European Union is preparing to relax regulations on Japanese food imports, except for products from nuclear disaster hit Fukushima Prefecture.

    The EU requires radiation checks on food products from Tokyo and 9 other prefectures, mostly in northern Japan. The procedures were implemented following the 2011 nuclear accident at the Fukushima Daiichi plant.

    Officials at the European Commission, the EU executive body, said on Friday that from April it will no longer require inspections on food products made in Tokyo and adjacent Kanagawa Prefecture.

    They also said no inspection will be needed for vegetables and livestock products from places other than Fukushima.
    But the EU will newly require checks on mushrooms and bamboo shoots produced in Akita and Yamagata Prefectures.

    The new rules are expected to take effect on April 1st after being approved by the commission.

    Comment:

    In my opinion the European food testing requirements for Japanese food has been a deception from the beginning, and still are.

    This article explains clearly how this worldwide Governmental deception works, using Europe as an example. “European regulators raised the European food safety levels by 20 to 30 times after the Fukushima Nuclear disaster.”

    27th December 2013 – Measurements of Fission Products from the Fukushima Daiichi Incident in San Francisco Bay Area Air Filters, Automobile Filters, Rainwater, and Food.

    Extracts:

    Monitoring activities in air and rainwater began soon after the onset of the March 11, 2011 tsunami and are reported here through the end of 2012. Observed fallout isotopes include 131I, 132I, 132Te, 134Cs, 136Cs, and 137Cs. Isotopes were measured on environmental air filters, automobile filters, and in rainwater. An additional analysis of rainwater in search of 90 Sr is also presented.

    The highest activity found in these samples was that of 131I which peaked at 16 Bq/L on 3/24/2011.

    This produced a one sigma upper limit of 8.98 mBq/L for the presence of 90Sr in the rainwater samples analyzed.

    Table A.6 . In most of the Pacific Fish samples, 137Cs was present, with the highest activity found in tuna from the Philippines, which had a 137Cs activity of 0.24(4) Bq kg.

    These tests of Californian cattle feed, milk and cheese cover the period of 2012. Even in 2012 I-131 is still being detected in milk, which brings up the question.

    “Is this contamination from Fukushima, or local Nuclear Power Plants?”

    For the cattle feed testing multiply by 1,000 to get pCi/kg, as the test are in pCi per gram. Here is a pCi to Bq converter. So multiply the PCi/grm by 1,000 before putting it into the converter to get Bq/kg.

    WORLD

    14th December 2012 – A study on the transport of radioactive isotopes from Fukushima in the two months after the nuclear incident suggests that they were at official levels of contamination for 34,000 km2 of Japan, and that 2.8% of iodine radionuclides from the event were calculated to have reached the EU.

    Extracts:

    The model results suggest that 12.7% of iodine radionuclides were deposited over the USA and Canada, 4.5% over Russia and 2.8% over the EU. Approximately 50 – 60% was deposited locally in Japan.

    A separate calculation which assumed source emissions that were five times greater, suggested that a relatively large and densely populated part of Japan – 56,000 km2 – would be classified as contaminated.

    It should be emphasized that this refers to two radionuclides only.

    7th February 2014 – Iodine-131 surge in Japan. Strontium-90 nightmare.

    Extracts:

    New sludge data from Japan shows recent increases in iodine-131. This suggests increases in fission, probably from Units #2 and #3.

    It turns out that groundwater from the well at the seaside direction from Unit 2 has a lot more strontium-90 and all-beta radiation than they previously said. It used to be 900,000 Bq/liter, now it’s 5 million Bq Sr-90 and 10 million Bq all-beta.

    Applying this ratio yields over 17 million Bq/liter of strontium-90 in the most recent measurement.

    Strontium-90 doesn’t start leaking in significant quantities until 1,000 days after the meltdown, which was approximately the time frame from last July. Cesium-137 doesn’t really get going until after 10,000 days.

    “We knew precisely how much of the different types of radiation that people were being exposed to.”
    “What dose the population was receiving.”
    “We knew everything.”

    “Between 1949 and 1989, the Soviet Union exploded 460 nuclear bombs in eastern Kazakhstan. The damage residents suffered as a result of being exposed to high levels of radiation has been passed on, and seems to have intensified in the following generations.”

    The total number affected is thought to be more than one million – creating health problems ranging from thyroid diseases, cancer, birth defects, deformities, premature aging, and cardiovascular diseases. Life expectancy in the area is seven years less than the national average of Kazakhstan

    June 2010 – Greenpeace Report “The toxic ships The Italian hub, the Mediterranean area and Africa”

    Extracts:

    Ocean dumping takes on an even more sinister profile in the Mediterranean region where over two decades Italian prosecutors have looked into a number of suspicious deep-water sinkings. They suspect that Italian and foreign industries have acted in league with organised crime and possibly government agencies, to use the Mediterranean as a dumping ground. Vessels carrying suspicicous cargo sunk in fair weather, sent no mayday and their crew were never to be seen again. None of these sunken vessels have yet been located.

    In the 80s and 90s Switzerland, home to the secretive banks made infamous by spy-thriller films and books, was obviously on the forefront in arranging shipments of millions tons of hazardous waste to developing countries. A number of Swiss lawyers, trustees, bankers and traders, contacted European industries to get their waste out of sight at the lowest price. Africa was the favourite destination.

    Since the fall of Siad Barre allegations abounded that foreign companies and governments were taking advantage of the collapse of the Somalian state by using the nation’s waters and land as a waste dump.

    In early 2005, several international media sources reported the waves hitting Somalia as a consequence of the 2004 earthquake in the Indian Ocean, besides killing hundreds of people, washed ashore radioactive and toxic waste dumped in the country in the early ‘90s. “Initial reports indicate that the tsunami waves broke open containers full of toxic waste an d scattered the contents.

    17th August 1998 – Wastes of War Radioactivity Threatens a Mighty River

    Extracts:

    The product of nuclear fission, including plutonium-239, cesium-137 and strontium-90, have been found hundreds of miles downstream, apparently carried by the river’s powerful floods, and have been detected in the food chain.

    In downstream villages, experts have found a disturbing statistical pattern of illnesses: an increase in children with leukemia, in breast cancer among women, in genetic aberrations, and a higher death rate.

    At Mayak, located in the Ural Mountains, immense releases of radioactivity came from wastes that were pumped into open reservoirs and Lake Karachai, as well as the 1957 catastrophic explosion of a radioactive waste container that created a massive aerial plume that exposed hundreds of thousands of people to radiation. At Tomsk-7, there was an explosion in 1993 in a 9,246-gallon tank containing uranium and plutonium that released substantial amounts of radioactivity.

    These injections remain some of the largest discharges of radiation ever made into the global environment. Donald J. Bradley of the U.S. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, in a recent study on radioactive waste in the former Soviet Union, reported that the injections at Krasnoyarsk released 1 billion curies of radioactivity into the Earth, of which 450 million curies remained in 1996.

    By comparison, he said, the Chernobyl nuclear power plant accident in April 1986 released 5.8 million curies, of which 1.57 million remained.

    Vitaly Kovalenko, deputy chief doctor for radiology at the regional sanitary-epidemiological center in Krasnoyarsk, said plutonium has been found on Gorodskoi Island at readings of up to 48 becquerels per kilo.

    21st January 2014 -Cesium Found in Tuna in Swiss Stores and in Some Samples of Salmon Tested by a Seattle Fish Company

    Extract:

    The fish come from the Philippines. As they travel long distances, they could have floated by the vicinity of the damaged nuclear power plant at Fukushima. For months, radioactively contaminated water has been leaking into the sea. Markus Zehringer, head of radioactivity in air and space at the Cantonal Laboratory in Basel, also assumes that the radiation is related to the nuclear disaster in Fukushima.

    PACIFIC OCEAN

    22nd January 2014 – Large amount of cesium flowed into ocean after 2011 typhoon.

    Extracts:

    Cesium released from the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant in a triple meltdown in March 2011 landed in the soil in the region, which measures some 5,000 square kilometers wide. The fallout is gradually finding its way into the river through storm-water runoff.

    In the 12-month period, the amount of cesium that reached the ocean was about 10 trillion becquerels, almost the same as the figure for cesium that directly flowed into the ocean from the crippled plant during the same period.

    Comment:

    This study shows that even if they were able to stop the contamination from the Fukushima Nuclear disaster site following into the Pacific Ocean, there will still be huge amounts of contamination flowing into to the Pacific Ocean for years to come, from the vast area of contaminated land rain runoff .

    20th January 2014 – International marine science organization releases report on radiation in Pacific Ocean

    Extracts:

    Researchers from Fisheries and Oceans Canada confirmed that the radioactive plume from Fukushima is indeed reaching the shores of Canada and the United States – and was detected at least six months ago – carried both in the ocean surface water and the atmosphere on similar but slightly different courses.

    Meanwhile, the second, published by Vincent Rossi and other colleagues from the Climate Change Research Centre in 2013, presents a much more consequential picture. It predicts alarming maximum levels reaching 25 Bq/m^3 at their monitoring station in British Columbia by 2015 and peaks above 30 Bq/m^3.

    USA

    10th January 2014 – With radiation in food safety limits 10x weaker than Japan’s, North American food and agricultural imports from Japan escalate.

    Extracts:

    The US has the weakest standards of those studied. In comparison, the EU has stricter standards, and Japan’s standards are the strictest. In comparison to Japan and the EU limit for imports from Japan, the US and Canadian limits are 12 and 10 times weaker, respectively.

    The conclusion, based on the data, appears to be yes. With food safety limits at least 10x weaker than Japan’s, North America could have become a target for Japan’s radioactive food. This has implications for consumers, who may not be fully aware of the fact that these varying standards may result in food deemed as too radioactive in Japan being exported to the US and Canada for human consumption.

    Comment:

    This situation is not just isolated to the USA. This New Zealand Ministry of Primary Industries New Zealand testing report (Link below), indicates that contaminated Japanese tea that tested above the Japanese 100 Bq/kg limit, was allowed to be sold to New Zealanders!

    Ministry of Primary Industries New Zealand, “Radionuclide testing in Imported Foods Survey,” 21st August 2013.

    Quote Page 9 “Summary”: (This was for imported Japanese tea.)

    “All results were well within Codex limits, with the highest results being 76.7Bq/kg for 137Cs and 57.4Bq/kg for 134Cs.
    Total Cesium content 134.1 Bq/Kg.”

    (The codex limit for these radionuclides is 1000Bq/kg, which applies to foods for a year following a nuclear incident.)

    Quote Page 10 “Conclusion”:

    “The tea samples tested indicates that there is no concerning levels of radionuclide contamination in food products exported from Japan to New Zealand.”

    My Opinion:

    Why would any country outside of Japan be using this criminal standard anyway? Japan isn’t even using using it!

    A 1000Bq/kg is way too high an international standard for Cesium, Nuclear Disaster or not. Recent research is suggesting 5 Bq/kg or less for children is more realistic, but preferably none! if I knew tea had a total 134 Bg/kg of detected Cesium in it , I certainly would not be using it. In my opinion it is criminal to allow anyone, particularly children or pregnant mothers, to consume tea at this level of contamination!

    If Cesium is present, it is very likely other isotopes are also!

    7th January 2014 – No Elevated Levels of Radiation Found in North Pacific Salmon Samples*

    Extracts:

    Loki Fish Company announced today that laboratory analysis of five salmon species harvested by its fishermen in Puget Sound and Southeast Alaska during 2013 show no indications of elevated radiation levels.

    Two of the samples registered at trace levels – Alaskan Keta at 1.4Bq/kg for Cesium 137, and Alaskan Pink at 1.2Bq/kg for Cesium 134. There were no detectable levels of iodine-131 in any samples.

    http://www.lokifish.com/scrapbook_detail.php

    [*Editor: The fact that Cesium 134 was, with its 2-year half-life, detected is very significant and certainly does not validate "no indications of elevated radiation levels." Cs-134 has could have only come from Fukushima. This is very significant and this food stock should not be consumed by folks not eager to feast on Fukushima-impacted fish.]

    WORLD

    5th February 2013 – Modelling the global atmospheric transport and deposition of radionuclides from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident. (March 11 to the 31st May 2011)

    Extracts:

    The calculated concentrations have been compared to station observations by the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO).

    We calculated that about 80 % of the radioactivity from Fukushima which was released to the atmosphere deposited
    into the Pacific Ocean.

    Used the temporal emission patterns for the radioactive isotopes 133 Xe and 137 Cs for March and April 2011.

    The model not only represents the measurements well in the vicinity of the source, but also in North, Middle and South America.

    Deposition maps are on page 9 and 10

    Our model results suggest that the plumes that traversed the Pacific Ocean caused significant deposition of radioactivity over continental North America, in particular western USA, western Canada and eastern USA.

    Our model results also show substantial deposition of radionuclides in regions southwest of Japan, e.g., around the Philippines.

    We calculated that an area of Japan of 34,000 km 2 was contaminated by more than 40 kBqm2 of 137 Cs and
    131 I, to which 9.4 million people were exposed. Our model results indicate that a surface area of 60,000 km2
    received a total deposition greater than 10 kBqm2 a region inhabited by 46 million people.

    Our model indicates that a relatively large and densely populated part of Japan including parts of the Tokyo metropolitan area has been contaminated by more than 40 kBqm2.

    Comment:

    This study does not take into account the large continuing radioactive releases from the Fukushima Nuclear disaster since May 2011, or the hundreds of other different radioactive isotopes that were released at the time, besides I-131, Cs-137 and Xe-133.

    Probably worth downloading and saving a copy, for future reference.

    Here is an amazing article on food testing for Cesium 137 from Fukushima, carried out by two Russian researchers, both PHD experts in their field of science. Recently, the Fukushima radiation deniers have all taken to pointing out that there is radiation everywhere, even in bananas. The point, of course is that you are supposed to see that radiation is really NOT harmful after all, and we are all surrounded by it constantly. What that has to do with Cesium 127, Strontium 90,Iodine 131 and Plutonium truly defies my particular and possibly somewhat limited imagination. However, I will absolutely never again eat another banana! One denier fellow showed me his watch which had also had radiation in it..so at least,that was a refreshing change. Apparently these anti-Fukushima-harm people believe that we are all idiots!

    4th March 2013 – House of Commons Energy and Climate Change Committee, Sixth Report of Session 2012–13.

    Extracts:

    2.3 Other work has demonstrated that insoluble radionuclides (such as those produced by the irradiation of
    uranium and other artificial elements), discharged to sea from the Sellafield site, can also travel hundreds of
    kms from source. Radio nuclides, such as Plutonium 239 (with a half life of 24,110 years), adsorb strongly to
    the outer surface of particulate matter suspended in the water column wherein they are available for transport
    in the water column (over extended distances and time scales) and subsequent deposition into fine sediment
    deposits such as estuarine and coastal mudflats and salt marshes. (Ref 5)

    2.4 The 2009 monitoring of Irish Sea sediments, records the presence of the Sellafield derived actinides
    Plutonium, Americium and Curium isotopes in fine sediment deposits (salt marshes and mudflats) on
    the Irish Sea coasts of Cumbria, Lancashire, S.W. Scotland, North Wales and Northern Ireland. (Ref 6)
    UK Marine monitoring reports invariable allude to the detectable presence of Sellafield derived
    Plutonium as far away as the Bristol Channel and the Southern North Sea.

    2.5 Thus there is no doubt that both soluble and insoluble radio nuclides discharged to sea are
    physically adapted to being transported for:
    (a) extensive time periods; and
    (b) over extensive distances from point of discharge

    OCEAN DUMPING

    9 May 2001 – Newly released documents indicate the Navy dumped far more nuclear waste than it’s ever acknowledged in a major commercial fishery just 30 miles west of San Francisco.

    Extracts:

    The Navy’s own documents, declassified at the request of SF Weekly, show that significant amounts of the nuclear bomb component plutonium, which has a half-life of 24,000 years, and similarly long-lived “mixed fission” products were used at the nuclear laboratory at Hunters Point.

    An entire radioactive ship, the 10,000-ton aircraft carrier USS Independence, is believed to have been sunk in or near the waste site. The carrier itself was clearly “hot” when it went down. It had been used as an atomic bomb target and a nuclear laboratory, and it was packed full of fresh fission products and other radiological waste at the time it sank.

    The simple truth is that no one can say with any degree of certainty whether the Farallon Islands Nuclear Waste Site and the fish taken there are safe, because no one has fully studied them.

    Because of the World Ocean currents, the seafood that’s caught off the US Pacific coast is more likely to contain radionuclides than the seafood in the Sea of Okhotsk, which is by far closer to Japan. It is these marine products that may find their way to the tables of different countries’ residents that pose the gravest danger.

    Radionuclides have made it even to the Alaskan coast, causing a decline in the sockeye populations there.

    Extracts:

    One of the scientists we work with had air filters, continuous air monitors, set up in Seattle and we could clearly show that the average person in Seattle was ingesting about 10 hot particles a day into their lungs.

    The authorities did know about it though. I’m absolutely convinced that authorities did know about it and chose to keep us all in the dark.

    25th December 2013 – ‘Fukushima fish ends in garbage’: Radioactive fears blight Japan’s seafood industry

    Extracts:

    There is significant contamination in the bottom segment, especially in the pond and the river system, where we can find a very high amount of radioactive cesium accumulated.

    Most of the fish caught within the 30 kilometer radius is thrown into the garbage because it is radiated. And TEPCO is paying to local fishermen for it, so that they’re happy and keep silent on that. Some of it though makes it to stores, but only locally.

    Extracts:

    For up to 15 years after World War II, the crew of Albernaz’s ship, the USS Calhoun County, dumped thousands of tons of radioactive waste into the Atlantic Ocean, often without heeding the simplest health precautions, according to Navy documents and Tampa Bay Times interviews with more than 50 former crewmen.

    Not all of them sank. A few pushed back against the frothing ocean, bobbing in the waves like a drowning man. Then shots would ring out from a sailor with a rifle at the fantail. And the sea would claim the bullet-riddled drum.

    18th December 2013 – Inside Japan’s battle to prove fish is safe after Fukushima nuclear disaster

    Extracts:

    MERI screens 200 species every year, including shellfish and seaweed, as well as the more common cod and salmon, from waters as deep as 1,300 feet. Seawater and sediment are also monitored, as are freshwater fish.

    A reading of more than 100 bequerels per kilogram triggers an automatic ban. By comparison, the U.S. tolerates much higher amounts of radiation; 1,200 bequerels per kilogram.

    Amassing the results of tens of thousands of samples like this, Japan’s Fisheries Agency says ocean and fish contamination has sharply declined since the March 2011 nuclear accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. In the three months following the catastrophe, 53 percent of fish sampled off Fukushima showed radiation levels surpassing the safety limit of 100 bequerels per kilogram. By the following year, the proportion of contaminated fish had halved.

    Comment:

    The latest research I have seen suggests 5 Bq per Kg of Cesium or less for children and preferably none. If this is the case, then both the Japanese and USA standards are set way to high.

    It is not just Cesium and Strontium contamination that should be reported. There are lots of other Isotopes that can be potentially bio-accumulating in this sea food that they don’t talk about.

    Extracts:

    The scientists observed the largest spikes in deep-sea productivity in 2011 and 2012, corresponding with massive phytoplankton blooms.

    In March 2012, less than one percent of the seafloor beneath Station M was covered in dead sea salps. By July 1, more than 98 percent of it was covered in the decomposing organisms.

    The major increase in activity of deep-sea life in 2011 and 2012 weren’t limited to Station M, though: Other ocean-research stations reported similar data.

    Comment:

    They put this event down to global warming.

    The vast majority of the large multiple species die off reports I have seen, are from Northern America, and the Pacific Ocean. This geographical evidence strongly points to the continuing Northern America radiation fallout, and Pacific Ocean contamination, caused by the ongoing Fukushima Nuclear disaster.

    Quote: “He hastened to put that number into context. “A thousand becquerels is not a big number for cesium. Just for comparison, that’s lower than the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s limit for drinking water.”

    In the light of recent research the Environmental Protection Agency’s Cesium limit for drinking water, has been set far to high.

    Also, in regards to Ocean dynamics this report does not take into account,

    1. The potential 100,000 times or more bio-accumulation in sea food.

    2. The fact that the Fukushima nuclear disaster has released and is still releasing, thousands of different types of radioactive isotopes, not just Cesium.

    These reports generally only concentrate on the Cesium contamination, and conveniently leave out discussion on the other isotopic contaminants.

    Or rather, when will he admit that the entire scientific model that underpins his views is fraudulent? And that nuclear radiation is – roughly speaking – 1,000 times more dangerous to human health than he is letting on?”

    15th November 2013 – Some things learned from the radio chemistry symposium.

    Extracts:

    Page 57: “At 4810 m of S1, the highest 134 Cs flux was observed in early May 2011. It was notable that the maximum 134 Cs activity and relatively higher flux was observed in late November and early December 2011.”

    “The activity ratio of 0.85 reported by TEPCO can only result from an enriched Uranium fission having occurred about 50 hours before the samples were measured or an explosive criticality which occurred 60 hours before the measurements.”

    Page 256: “The tritium concentration of the precipitation in Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan, showed the highest annually averaged value of 74.1 Bq/L 1 in 1963, which corresponded to the year of the maximum fallout of tritium in the northern hemisphere.

    A dramatic increase in tritium concentrations of 131.6 Bq/L and 99.9 Bq/L was observed in the rainfalls of 9:30-13:40 on 30 May.”

    Page 53: “The mean isotopic ratio between Iodine-129 and Iodine-131 at the accident was estimated that 129 I/ 131 I = 26 ± 6 as of March 11 2011.”

    “This is in agreement with “31 times as much Iodine-129 than I-131 from Fukushima”.

    Page 293: Carbon-14 and tritium were measured in Japanese sewage sludge. C-14 had an activity of 2,000 Bq/kg. This is about 3% that of tritium. But its half-life is over 400 times as long as tritium.

    Page 323: “We also studied whether there were influences on 12 C/ 14 C ratios in the plants due to the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (FDNPP) occurred in March, 2011. Although there are many papers reporting the release of several nuclides, there are almost no data for 14 C…

    Page 239: High activities of 241 Pu ranging from 4.5 to 34.8 mBq/g were detected in the J-Village surface soil (0-2 cm) and two litter samples. This finding of high 241 Pu activities in environmental samples after the FDNPP accidnet provided evidence of the release of Pu isotopes from the accident.”

    Page 322: “Figure 1 shows correlation between 238 Pu and 137 Cs for six aliquots. The radioactivity of 238 Pu in one aliquot is clearly higher than the others, and the ratio of 238 Pu/ 239,240 Pu of the former is also higher. This result suggests the existence of hot particle of Pu in that aliquot.”

    “Cesium-134 and -137, plutonium-238, -239, -240, americium-241, curium-242, -243, -244, uranium-236, are in the black dust. Curium is especially nasty. It is a neutron radiation emitter. It works on the same principle as the neutron bomb. It makes the chemical substances in human cells radioactive.”

    https://www.facebook.com/pages/West-Auckland-Radiation-Monitor/367794690000067

    They received this report.

    Extracts;

    All results were well within Codex limits, with the highest results being 76.7Bq/kg for 137Cs and 57.4Bq/kg for 134Cs.
    The highest level of 137Cs detected Mackerel was 3.23Bq/kg.

    The codex limit for these radionuclides is 1000Bq/kg, which applies to foods for a year following a nuclear incident.

    I-131 must not be more than 100 Bq/kg.

    Strontium-90 must not be more than 100 Bq/kg

    90 Sr was not detected in any of the fish samples, and was not tested for in the tea samples.

    Comment:

    A 1000Bq/kg is way to high an international standard for Cesium. Recent research is suggesting 5 Bq/kg or less for children is more realistic, but preferably none! I certainly would not be using tea that had a total of 134 Bg/kg of detected Cesium in it. In my opinion it is criminal to allow anyone, particularly children or pregnant mothers, to consume tea at these levels of contamination!

    If Cesium is present it is very likely other isotopes are also!

    Time-series analyses of western Irish Sea surface sediments have shown that, while 137Cs concentrations have fallen by a factor of between 2 and 5 since their peak in 1980-81, 239,240 Pu concentrations have remained relatively constant.

    Presently, concentrations of radionuclides such as 137Cs, 239,240 Pu and 241 Am in muddy sediments near the outfall are in the ranges 500–1,500 Bq kg , 500–600 Bq kg and 700– 900 Bq kg.

    At the present time, typical fresh weight concentrations of 137Cs in whitefish, lobster, crab, winkles and mussels sampled in the Sellafield coastal area are 7 Bq Kg-1, 3.4 Bq Kg-1, 2.9 Bq Kg-1, 12 Bq Kg-1 and 4 Bq Kg-1 , respectively, while the corresponding Pu–α concentrations are 0.02 Bq Kg-1, 0.54 Bq Kg-1, 0.54 Bq Kg-1, 13 Bq Kg-1 and 11 Bq Kg-1, respectively (Jackson et al., 2000)

    8th October 2013 – Fukushima’s Fish Tale

    Extracts:

    Something not tested for to date but mentioned by Straight.com is the risk from strontium 90 and plutonium in Pacific fish.

    The fish most at risk for contamination were rarely if ever tested. This tactic gives a false sense of security and leaves the true risk factor unknown.

    A citizen radiation watchdog group, BQwatcher posted these contamination readings.

    7th October 2013 – Scientists dismiss claims that radiation in Japan is contained.

    Extract:

    Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s claim that radioactive water leaking into the sea from the wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant is confined to the coast doesn’t make scientific sense.

    Each tank contains about 10 terabequerels, or 270 curies, of strontium-90.

    Once strontium gets into fish, it stays in them for months and years and it’s going to be an additional reason why they won’t be able to open up their fisheries

    7th October 2013 – Report raises fresh concerns about radiation levels in Japanese fish.

    Extracts:

    The Japanese Fisheries Agency has been testing the radiation in fish caught in its waters since March 2011. On average, fish in the 33,000 tests had 18 becquerels per kilo of radioactive cesium.

    Some fish samples tested to date have had very high levels of radiation: one sea bass sample collected in July, for example, had 1,000 becquerels per kilogram of cesium.

    Comment:

    Recent research suggests 5bq/Kg should be the maximum for children, and preferably none. If they detect Cesium there are probably other radioactive Isotopes contaminants present, but not reported.

    Extract: Mr. Chareyron claimed that the Montelimar graph indicated no iodine activity, and that the beta nuclides detected were from natural radon, as was explained in the text.

    He also said that the Avignon graph, which was clearly labeled to indicate a detection of iodine-131, was actually a measurement gamma emissions in the range of 320 to 400 keV. This range includes iodine-131, as well as the radon-222 daughters, lead-214 and bismuth-214. The variations were due to increases in the current of the Rhone river.

    800Bq/kg or even 100 Bq/Kg is not safe! Recent research is suggesting 5 Bq/kg or less occasional ingestion. It is all extra risk no mater what level. Also these tests do not tell you about any other isotope contamination that may have bio-accumulated in these sea food products.

    This short animation shows Northern, and Southern Hemisphere air circulation. It clearly shows why we can get detections so far south. There is more equatorial barrier circulation break through during warmer months than winter.

    Summary of Report

    The storms passed over the Nimbin area on the 16th, and Caloundra area on the evening of the 17th, and early morning of the 18th. Rain swabs were collected from both these rain events, and analyzed.

    1. The rain swab collected at Caloundra was tested and found to contain both the decay daughters of both Radon-222, and Radon-220. It is common to get Radon-222 washouts, not Radon-220. Radon-222 is from the Uranium decay chain, and Radon-220 is from the Thorium decay chain.

    This theory has been put forward by a contact in New Zealand. The Radon-220 decay daughter isotope detection here, is an indication that one or more of the underground coriums at Fukushima undergoing fast neutron fission. One or more coriums are possibly purifying, and operating in a mode of unmoderated fission. This would increase the yields of Thorium daughters.

    2. Trace amounts of longer lived isotopes for Iodine I-129, Uranium U-235, Be-7 and Lead Pb-210 where also detected. This is not good, but probably far less than areas in the Northern Hemisphere are getting as fallout.

    3. Here are some other theories why large Radon washout events are becoming more common.

    http://sccc.org.au/monthly-report-on-the-local-background-radiation-levels/#October-2012-report

    Some of the very large Radon washouts that are occurring in Nimbin area may be related to the geography of the location. Why we have concerns about large Radon washout events. http://www.radonseal.com/radon-health.htm

    For more Technical details, charts and analysis, read on. (Comments, corrections, and suggestions are welcome)

    “Alert Caloundra report 18th September 2013 – Storms overnight here, so I took rain swab off a car this morning. On testing it peaked at approximately 6 uSv/hr (1800 cpm) using two Russian SBM-20 tubes, and Theremino Geiger kit. Again it is suggested to stay out of the rain. This rain sample is decaying quickly which suggests it was a large Radon-222 washout.”

    This long period Geiger counter test chart indicated the presence of other Isotopes besides Radon-222 washout decay daughters.

    The main peaks are decay daughter isotopes of Radon-220, Lead Pb-212 (238 keV), X-ray at 77 keV, and Thalium Tl-208 (511, 583 keV), plus peaks for long lived isotopes of Iodine I-129, Uranium U-235, Beryllium Be-7, and Lead Pb-210. Because the rain swab scintillator test was started less than 24 hours after it was collected, there are some Radon-222 decay daughter isotopes of Lead Pb-214 and Bismuth Bi-214 also present.

    Day average background levels have also been very volatile in this area for last 14 days, recently hitting 30% above the pre-Fukushima 4 year average.

    NOTE: We haven’t seen any studies on the heath effects of being exposed to large Radon washout events like this. It is only a suggestion to take these precautions in the Rain Alert emails. If you live in the area, it is suggested to stay out of the rain during these events, plus keep children and pets out of it also. If you do get wet, have a good shower. It maybe a very large radon washout event, that seems to be common to the Nimbin area. This rain washout could also have other isotopes in it. Without further testing with better equipment, there is no way of knowing.

  79. 17th September 2013 – Video published on EnviroReporter.com‘s YouTube channel
    Summation: Published on Sep 17, 2013
    EnviroReporter took a road trip to the Central Coast of California that included visiting a fisherman and his wife, Will and Robin, at their beautiful Santa Barbara home to test an assortment of fish and sea creatures for radiation. Will offered us an excellent opportunity to test yellowtail, bluefin tuna, rockfish, bluefin tuna “collar,” mussels, squid, albacore tuna and yellowtail collar. All the fish was caught locally by Will and measured at background. This is probably because the Sea of Fuku Goo hasn’t made it down to Southern California yet. The results, while hopeful for the time being, do not change EnviroReporter’s admonition not to eat or consume anything from the Pacific unless you can verify yourself it is radiation-free. That includes seaweed and its derivative carrageenan which is widely used in the food industry and toothpaste for its gelling, thickening and stabilizing properties. But at least for the time being, these anecdotal tests show that at least some of Southern California’s fish are still not hot.

    http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news/biz/2013/09/123_142580.html

    Comment: These are not leaks, there has been a flood of highly contaminated water flowing into the Pacific Oceans for over 30 months now. Tepco has provided various estimates ranging between 300 to 600 tons per day.

    ——————————–

    Poster FXofTruth on enenews calculated there is far more water flowing into the Pacific, than the Tepco published estimate. This does not include the ground water flowing through the plant!

    Water is poured on to a melting core at 30,000 gallons per minute – (scientific estimation during an emergency meltdown)

    – 8.3 pounds is the weight of one gallon of water
    – 30,000 gallons of water weight 249,000 pounds
    – A short TON, commonly used in the US, is equal to 2000 pounds

    ONE MINUTE – of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 124.5 TONS of water. (All based on 30,000 gallons per minute)

    ONE HOUR – of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 7,470 TONS of water.

    24 HOURS – of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 79,280 TONS of water.

    1 WEEK – of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 1,254,960 TONS of water.

    ONE YEAR – of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 65,257,920 TONS of water.

    50 YEARS – of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 3,262,896,000 TONS of water.

    100 YEARS – of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 6,525,792,000 TONS of water.

    1000 YEARS – of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 6,525,792,000,000 TONS of water.

    Now lets x3 melted cores = 19,577,376,000,000 tons of water.

    ———————————-

    It is logical to suggest, that far more water has and is flowing into the Pacific Ocean than the estimates provided by Tepco!

    09.09.2013 – Detection of radioactive Iodine I-129 in roof gutter moss Australia.

    I recently collected 82 grams of moss that had been growing in roof gutter here, and tested it. It was very wet here for the first half of 2013. August has had no rain, so the moss sample was dry.

    I am located here on the east coast of Australia.

    http://sccc.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/Moss-from-roof-gutter-80-grams-260813-TV5-19c-80781-+-text.jpg

    If my assessment is correct, this Southern Hemisphere detection is not a good sign. This is a lot of Iodine I-129. The other possibility is it is Lead Pb-210, or a mixture of both. The main peak is much closer to 40 keV than to 47 keV for lead Pb-210. I have tested this sample with different software, and calibrated a number of times, it very much looks like I-129.

    This means it is bio-accumulating. So even though our background levels here have not risen a lot, bio-accumulations could present a more serious issue. The moss also had some other material mixed in with it, that it was growing on, leaves and other organic matter. This test result also suggests that there would be more 1-129 in fallout in the Northern Hemisphere.

    I have discussed this test result with some of my contacts here.

    Why so much I-129, and not Cesium etc.?

    The conclusion is because of its volatility. It can also easily volatilize in an environment, as the temperature increases.

    This would allow it to easily spread long distances, like Iodine I-131.

    Another pre-Fukushima Argentina study, indicates that Norther Hemisphere I-129, can reach the Southern Hemisphere. This study shows I-129 has migrated from nuclear fuel reprocessing plants at Cape de La Hague (France) and Sellafield (UK).

    For the technically minded – Testing procedures, and Becquerel activity calculations.

    Scintillator Model:
    Alpha Spectra NaI 818/2B, resolution 7%
    Voltage setting; 800 Volts
    Efficiency 7% at 662 keV

    I used radioactive Americium (Am-241), from a smoke detector in the test chamber, to calibrate the low energy peak position, and also the scintillator efficiency at around 40 keV.

    Here is the calibration chart for reference.

    http://sccc.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/Moss-+-Americium-+-text.jpg

    Estimate of scintillator efficiency at 40 keV

    Smoke detector Am-241 activity = 37,000 cps, from my research approximately 1% of this activity is Gamma.

    1% is Gamma = 3700 cps (36% of that 1% is at 60 keV)

    37 x 36 = 1332 cps = 100% gamma at 60 kev

    1295 / 100 = 13.32 = 1%

    693 cps was the actual cps in chamber for this peak region

    693 / 13.32 = 52% efficiency at 60 keV

    Estimated efficiency at 40 keV is approximately 52%.

    I used Japanese BecqMoni MCA software to calculate the activity.

    Using 52% efficiency at 40 keV.

    net count – background = 80039

    80039 / 52 = 1,539 (1%)

    1,539 x 100 = 153,900 (100%)

    Time of test = 79700 seconds

    153900 / 79700 = 1.931 cps

    82 grams in weight 1000 / 82 = 12.195

    1.931 X 12.195 = 23.5 Bq/kg

    This may not be an absolute quantification of the scintillator tube’s efficiency at 40 keV, but we are dealing with moss in a large marinelli beaker here. The efficiency of activity is going to be less than the 52% for the Am-241. So the 23.5 Bq/kg activity estimation is probably conservative.

    MISCELLANEOUS ITEM TESTING REPORTS

    Light Tower Radiation Treatment, and Kitchen Sponges

    I was approached by a group of people to test a new device that used “Plasmonics” technology. They felt the devices that used this technology would be of great benefit to people of Japan, for radiation remediation. The device is called a “Light Tower”, see the attached photo.

    Two men and a women turned up on Friday 16th August around 11 am. In the boot of the car they had a wooden box filled with layered square shaped metal plates, that appeared to be engraved stainless steel. They told me this was a top of the line Light Tower kit costing AU$10,000. They said you can also purchase pendants of this technology to wear.

    http://sccc.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/lighttower.jpg

    These people appeared to be well intentioned, and convinced by the inventor that this technology would reduce radiation effects in any environment, internal, or external. They where very interested in getting these devices to Japan, to help the people there.

    Here is a short outline of what proceeded.

    I provided them with some kitchen washing up sponges that I had just finished testing. This batch of sponges had a coconut fibre scourer top, that had some type of course material embedded in it. I had discovered on testing, this material was slightly radioactive.

    They treated the kitchen sponges twice with the AU$10,000 Light Tower kit. There was no detectable difference in radioactivity after each treatment, when tested with a sensitive Geiger counter.

    After testing showed there wasn’t any detectable difference, they indicated that even if the technology did not make any difference to the detectable amount of radioactivity, it would still be rendered less harmful! This included microwave radiation from mobile phones, as well as radiation from Fukushima.

    They felt the plastic zip lock bags I had the four sponges in, were stopping the Light Tower plasmonics from working properly. At this stage they requested I place the kitchen sponges in a single paper bag. After doing this, I tested them with the more sensitive, lead shielded scintillator test equipment.

    Here is a chart of the scintillator test before treatment (Blue line in chart), and after treatment (Green line in chart). The very small differences in the chart are created by slight changes in positioning of the sample in the test chamber, from test, to retest. As you can see there is no significant difference after treatment with the Light Tower kit.

    http://sccc.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/Sponge-Kitchen-coconut-fiber-52-grams-170813-TV5-19c-79511-+-treatment-+-text.jpg

    They then proceeded to treat two other radioactive samples I had on had on hand, with the full Light Tower kit.

    Here are the results of those tests.

    About this point it was time for them to leave. They asked if there was another radioactive sample they could take away and treat. I agreed to loan them earrings imported from America, as a Christmas present for a family friend. On testing, I had discovered Uranium glass gems in the design. We agreed they would take them away, and give them an extra special treatment. They returned with these Light Tower treated earrings within an hour.

    http://sccc.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/Minamisoma-Cesium-290313-TV45-23c-25040-MB-+-treatment.jpg

    I also have a sophisticated microwave radiation detector, so while they had the Light Tower kit set up, I did a microwave radiation test of the environment. Again there was no detectable difference They said to retest the room for microwave levels in 24 hours time.

    I retested the room here that had microwave radiation Plasmonic Light Tower Radiation Remediation treatment as suggested, 24 and 48 hours after it was treated. Again there was no detectable difference.

    Conclusion:

    The Scintillator equipment is very sensitive, plus it also measures the energy output of each isotope. All the testing results are indicating there is absolutely no evidence that the Light Tower devices have any “Plasmonic” Radiation Remediation effect”. The Light Tower information sheet that was sent to me suggested that, “A person or animal laying on a bed equipped with Plasmonic plates, would be quickly cleared of their radioactivity.” From the multiple tests conducted here using the top of the line Light Tower kit, no evidence has been found to support this claim.

    The microwave radiation room test also indicates there is no remediation of microwave radiation, using the Plasmonic Light Tower treatment.

    People worldwide have spent considerable amounts of money on this technology in the belief it will reduce risk when exposed to either ionizing, and non ionizing radiation. The test results show it makes absolutely no difference to radioactive emissions whether it be ionizing, or non ionizing radiation.

    If this device had been successful in mitigating the effects of radiation, I would have been singing it’s praises.

    PS. I have been contact by another person, who appeared to be in contact with the inventor, suggesting a different type of tests be conducted using the Light Towers. If that eventuates I will report the results.

    5th August 2013 – This is a large database of food testing results for the Fukushima region. Firstly look at the contamination levels that are now classed as safe, for Cesium and Iodine. They are much lower than the elevated levels they set just after the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster, still much to high for children.

    Can these test results be relied upon? The Japanese authorities have been caught out numerous times tampering with local monitoring stations, and Geiger counter settings, to show lower readings. Trying to present a much safer environment than is actually present.

    Also, the detection levels thresholds seem to be a moving target in this database. It may be because of differences in test equipment sensitivity. This database is only showing test results for Cesium, and Iodine. It does not provide testing information for other possible dangerous isotopes that may be present.

It has flowed into the Pacific Ocean for 28 months now. They use the word leak, to play it down. Their estimate is 450 tons a day of ground water flowing into the Pacific Ocean.

    Thinking out loud…

    What if the peach is a second generation mutation?
    Would it be okay to eat?

    If damaged DNA can change the size, shape and color of something, then it could also change the amount of nutrients or other things too. It might even make it toxic to eat. I guess anything’s possible at this point. :(

    EUROPE

    12th July 2013 – This very detailed 1992 fisheries report for the Channel Islands.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Channel_Islands

    It shows large amounts of contamination of sea food in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of France. In light of recent research, I feel this report greatly underestimates the risks of consuming these levels of radioactive isotope contamination. For risk assessment they use the physics based external dose rate model for both external, and internal exposure. This greatly underestimates the risks from internal exposure. They should use the biological model for risk assessment for internal exposure. The source of this environmental contamination is dumping of nuclear waste in the Atlantic Ocean, Nuclear Power Stations, and the French De La Hague nuclear reprocessing plant.

    Starting at page 13, they start to provide the actual amounts of individual isotopes detected in sea food, and the environment. In my opinion these levels of detection are very significant for some isotopes, and would pose a significant risk if consumed. These isotopes could be consumed collectively, so you will get a biological toxicity multiplying effect, plus most of these isotopes are heavy metals, as well as radioactive. It raises very serious questions about the safety of European sea food. The detected isotope levels revealed in this study, could have increased considerably since this study was completed.

    Special Report

    26th June 2013 – This scientific report indicates that the amount of long lived radioactive Iodine I-129, released during the early stages of the Fukushima Nuclear disaster, was 31 times greater than that for the short lived radioactive Iodine I-131. This study does not take into account any radioactive Iodine releases since then.

    Reported here on “Radiation Food Lab” 14th June 2013:

    “1.19 million Becquerel/kg of radioactive iodine detected on leafy vegetables near Fukushima Medical University in March 2011.” (See this Japanese report below)

    This would mean that 36.89 million Becquerel/kg of radioactive Iodine I-129 was on leafy vegetables, at a combined total for of I-129 + I-131 38.08 million Becquerel/kg. The bio-accumulation of I-129 poses a serious health problem for animal and human populations. Unlike radioactive Iodine I-131 which has a short half life of 8 days, or an environmental presence of 80 days +, radioactive Iodine I-129 has a half life of 15.7 million years.

    http://www.terrapub.co.jp/journals/GJ/pdf/4604/46040327.pdf

    Another pre Fukushima Argentina studying indicates that the I-129 will eventually reach the Southern Hemisphere. As it has from other major sources like the nuclear fuel reprocessing plants of Cape de La Hague (France) and Sellafield (UK).

    http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0048969712006353

    It would be logical to suggest that locations that had large bio-accumulation or fallout detections of Iodine I-131 from Fukushima, Japan, Southern Californian Kelp, San Francisco, Philadelphia, and Europe etc., should be multiplying their detections by 31, to get their fallout amounts of Iodine I-129! (These large Iodine I-131 detection reports are listed here at “Radiation Food Lab”.)

    I have been informed by a reliable source, the reason the general population was not advised to or issued with Potassium Iodine pills, is that there was a worldwide shortage at the time. It was not possible to supply them to everyone. So who was chosen get them at the time?

    With this level of long life Iodine contamination bio-accumulating in the environment, the question needs to be asked. Is it necessary to take a clean sourced Iodine supplement for the rest of one’s life?

    Iodine supplements are not for everyone. We are all different. Some people taking them can get adverse side effects. No one should take them without medical advice from their doctor.

    This is a subject that needs further research.

    Southern Hemisphere, East Coast of Australia, rain water test for May 2013

    May be a detection of Iodine I-129 from the tin roof down pipe polyester filter. It is not conclusive. Rain water was passing through this polyester filter off a 36 sqm tin roof at a location on the Sunshine Coast. If it is, it is still a very small detection of I-129, because the filter was in place for all of May. Mind you, not all of it would have been captured using this filter system. Lots of Beryllium Be-7 is also present! If I-129 is present in this Southern Hemisphere test, it would suggest that there is a lot more in the rain in the Northern Hemisphere!

    For background on this subject, read this article on using Be-7 as a tracer for I-129.

    http://www.sciencecodex.com/dartmouth_scientists_track_radioactive_iodine_from_japan_nuclear_reactor_meltdown-89004

    There is a natural Beryllium Be-7 and Lead Pb-210 cycle here in the Southern Hemisphere. There is more Beryllium Be-7 and Lead Pb-210, detected in rain washouts, during summer than in winter. This appears to be an above average detection of Beryllium Be-7, and Lead Pb-210 in this test for May 2013.

    Be-7 is produced by cosmic ray spallation in the upper atmosphere. The Sun had been relatively quite during May 2013. It takes around two weeks to reach sea level.

    It is my understanding that the Japanese have been pumping large amounts of liquid Nitrogen onto the multiple molten coriums at the Fukushima Nuclear disaster, to cool them down. The neutron bombardment, plus lots of underground corium venting, has also been releasing large amounts Beryllium Be-7 and 1-129.

    Theory

    Because the I-129 at 39.6 keV, and Pb-210 at 46.5 keV, have energy peaks so close together, it can be difficult to tell them apart with a NAI scintillator. If they are present at the same time, the peak that shows will drift toward the 39.6 kev if more I-129 is present, and towards 46.5 keV if more Pb-210 is present.

    Information on Radioactive Iodine I-129

    Radioactive I-129 is a lot less radioactive than the I-131, they are both released during a nuclear reactor melt down, at a fixed ratio of 3 parts iodine-131 to one part iodine-129.

    Half life 1-131 8 day, in the environment 80 days +.

    Half Life I-129 15.7 million years.

    I-129 very tiny amounts can also be naturally produced in the upper atmosphere, by a process called cosmic spallation.

    1-129 can bio-accumulate in the environment and in food.

    Discussions on the implications, if it this is a detection of I-129

    The questions being debated here are.

    A. If it is a I-129 detection, is it from the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster?

    B. Does it pose a health risk? (It is far less radioactive that I-131.)

    C. Would it be wise to take Iodine supplements, if a significant extra amount of it was being released into the environment, and bio accumulating?

    ——————————————————

    Feedback from the Internet

    This is a reply by poster Potrblog on http://www.enviroreporter.com I think it is a very good answer to the questions above.

    “A: There is no 100% quantitative way to tie it to Fukushima, you can only make qualitative correlations based on the magnitude detected vs what would be expected, and other factors like opportunity and timing.

    B: I-129 is the most dangerous thing listed in the EPA’s drinking water limits. Its limit is 1 piCu/L. The limit for I-131 is 3 piCu/L. see
    http://www.epa.gov/ogwdw/radionuclides/pdfs/guide_radionuclides_table-betaphotonemitters.pdf

    C: That is a question people have to answer for themselves; Post Fukushima, my concern would be is the Iodine supplement also contaminated with I-129? (Japan produces 21% of the worlds iodine, see http://www.iofina.com/mid-stream-iodine-business/iodine )”

    —————————————————–

    Taking Iodine supplements is a question people have to decide for themselves.

    Iodine supplements are not for everyone. We are all different. Some people taking them can get adverse side effects. No one should take them without medical advice from their doctor. The possible I-129 detection here is very small, and not conclusive. The other isotopes detected in the May rain test are also of concern, but at trace levels at present. Beryllium Be-7 being the most prominent.

    USA

    This is particularly important article in the light of our detections of significant amounts of Beryllium Be-7, in our rain wash out tests here in Australia. In this Dartmouth study they explain why they use Be-7 as a tracker, for the hard to detect long lasting radioactive Iodine I-129.

    Extracts from Article:

    “The production rate of these two isotopes in a nuclear reactor occurs at a fixed ratio of 3 parts iodine-131 to one part iodine-129.”

    “Thus, the group’s research turned toward the development of an innovative alternative approach to measuring and tracking the iodine. What became an important off-shoot of their work was the methodology of using the benign radioisotope, beryllium-7, as the tracking indicator. It’s an easily detected natural radionuclide, and is routinely used by the Dartmouth researchers in their environmental analyses.

    The Dartmouth researchers have shown that beryllium-7 follows the same transport paths as the iodine isotopes. By ascertaining the ratio of association of the beryllium to the iodine, tracing the beryllium-7 as it moves through the environment then allowed the researchers to track the parallel transport of iodine, and to demonstrate the accumulation of iodine fallout in stream sediments.”

    Soil, Water, and Rain Testing Results
    Rainwater capture test 13th, April, 2013

    Detected Beryllium Be-7, Lead Pb-210, and Uranium U-235 in local
    rain test, Australia

    If the large amounts of Beryllium Be-7 being detected in this, and previous tests, has not been created in the upper atmosphere, this means Fukushima is still very unstable, and the molten underground coriums could be still fissioning.

    Roof down pipe filter design.

    http://sccc.org.au/down-pipe-filter-design

    This is not a test of the activated charcoal in this rainwater roof down pipe filter design, (see link), but the polyester particulate filter I placed before it. The polyester particulate filter was placed in front of the activated charcoal, to trap course material that may get flushed down off the 36 sqm tin roof.

    Just thought I would also test the polyester particulate filter, as I usually just test the activated charcoal in this roof down pipe filter experiment. It had been in place for a couple weeks before testing. There had not been much rain through it until recently.

    To get better accuracy I placed an Aluminum beta shield in front of the scintillator, during this test. This was to help stop peak position shift caused by a test chambers artifact at 511 keV, and Be-7 being a strong beta emitter.

    Beryllium Be-7 has a theoretical back scatter peak at around 166 keV, very close to the 185 kev for Uranium U-235. There is the possibility that it is contributing to the size of the peak at that location. It may also explain the width, and rounding of that peak at around 185 keV.

    Please feel free to comment on the test analysis.

    In the next couple days I will air dry the activated charcoal filter, and test it.

    @chase, I agree, that is why we have to do our best to try, and educate as many people as possible, to the seriousness of the situation. Hopefully we can turn the tide, and stop the destruction of earth’s biosphere. Future life on this planet, not just human life, depends on our positive actions now.

    If enough people wake up, there is a possibility of survival, and recovery from this very environmentally destructive period in human history.

    ;) Imagine what the test results for ‘everything’ would look like if the testing were being done like we know it should be.

    What will these tests be like in 5 or 10 more years?

    Coconuts on Bikini island still test very high for radiation, more than 60 YEARS later. The reason is the soil contamination which then passes on via roots and concentrates back into the plant.

    HOTSPOT avoidance will become more difficult as time goes on. Once a hotspot is created it will seep, creep, blow and SPREAD in ways we’ve not yet dreamed of.
