Japanese flee Fukushima to faraway Okinawa

Jan 6, 2013 Full story: Korea Herald 18

Okinawa is about as far away as one can get from Fukushima without leaving Japan, and that is why Minaho Kubota is here.

Formal Information about Japan's Military Is False

http://book.geocities.jp/japan_conspiracy/010...

Unfortunately, there are few things we can trust in the Japanese government.

There formal information is intentionally manipulated.

So, its formal information is often very paradoxical.

This is true that many mainland Japanese have escaped to Okinawa and to get away from Fukushima.

However, Fukushima radioactive material is dumped into the ocean.

Radioactive waste from Fukushima travels to Okinawa by water and contaminates fish near Okinawa too.

The ocean water is naturally "radioactive". The chemical and heavy metal pollution spewing from Japan's notoriously dirty industries is a much bigger concern than an increase of 1%, 0.1%, or 0.01% in radioactivity above natural background.
.
Especially now, when they are burning the extra oil and have fewer funds for filtration/cleanups to make up for the imbecilic stoppage of nuclear energy production.

Cesium-137 and strontium-90 are extremely dangerous radioactive contaminants, not simple industrial pollutants.

They are so dangerous, that the U.S. and Russia agreed on a nuclear test ban. They studied the effects of these and other radioactive contaminants and concluded they could kill off the human race.

Bodies of fish and animals confuse cesium and strontium for potassium and calcium, and they become concentrated into muscles and bones.

This effect is called BIO-CONCENTRATION and BIO-ACCUMULATION.

Cesium and strontium CONTAMINATES the FOOD CHAIN, because the bodies of fish and animals accumulate it. They keep eating radioactive contaminated food, and their bodies keep STORING radioactive particles in their muscle and bones.

Strontium-90 has a half life of 28 YEARS. Eat enough contaminated fish and beef, and YOU WILL get CANCER and DIE from it.

Mercury and lead, for comparison, gets broken down by bacteria and your body can chelate it. If you have enough SELENIUM (natural mineral used by body), your body will excrete out the mercury and lead.

It takes a massive quantity of mercury and lead, usually over years, to kill you. And your body has mechanisms of defense during the whole process trying to protect you.

There is NO biological defense against cesium and strontium, once it gets taken into your muscles and bones. The radioactive particles act like genetic explosions and CONSTANTLY DESTROYS YOUR DNA.

The idiot Japanese are contaminated the entire pacific ocean seafood supply. Radioactive particles are BIO-ACCUMULATING in FISH.

The longer Fukushima keeps spewing radioactive waste into the pacific ocean, the MORE radioactive particles accumulate in the fish. If YOU EAT enough radioactive contaminated fish with high concentrations of cesium and strontium, you WILL GET CANCER. It will do massive damage to your DNA.

Japan is a DEAD country. People just don't realize how bad it is yet.

You had 3 NUCLEAR REACTORS MELTDOWN. Not 1 like 3 mile island or Chernobyl, but fuuccking 3 MELTDOWNS.

The meltdown of the 3 nuclear reactors at Fukushima was the equivalent of a nuclear explosion 50X more powerful than that at Nagasaki or Hiroshima.

However, the radiation is being released SLOWLY. Year by year, more and more, radiation from Fukushima will contaminate and expand in the environment around.

Eventually, Fukushima will release the radioactive equivalent of a 50X more powerful nuclear explosion than hit Nagasaki or Hiroshima.

There is nothing the Japanese can do, with present technology, to stop it.

1. They can't reach the nuclear blobs UNDER the nuclear reactors that are contaminating the ocean.

2. They can't pull the spent fuel nuclear rods out of the pools above the reactors. They don't have the cranes to do it and even if the did, any mistake the make, can set off a NUCLEAR FIRE. A nuclear fire that will IMMEDIATELY but the equivalent of a huge "dirty" nuclear explosion into the air and force the evacuation of the ENTIRE north-east of Japan.

Japan is a dead country. It's NOT IF, but WHEN.

Japan will die from Fukushima either in 15 years from the slow radiation release, or it will die much sooner from a nuclear fire in Fukushima caused by a TEPCO clean up accident or ANOTHER earthquake to hit that area.

The Fukushima radiation is contaminating Tokyo and the surrounding areas. The north-east part of Japan is becoming more and more a nuclear wasteland with each passing day.

Each day, Fukushima spews out more and more radioactive water. The contamination is spreading to all of the surrounding north-east of Japan.

The food supply is being contaminated with radiation. The WATER, the FISH, the VEGETABLES and FRUITS, and the BEEF are all being contaminated.

No.
.
Radioactive pollutants are not more or less deadly than other pollutants.
.
I know that many decades of propaganda made people achieve an irrational fear of "ray-dee-ay-shun".
Nevertheless, it is just a pollutant/hazard like any other, deadly in high concentrations doses, of no/doubtful harm in low concentration (see Kerala, Yangjiang).
.
Again, even as a neighbour of Japan, I'd be more concerned that they cannot afford to de-toxify their industrial waste output (as they had to fork over all that money for all that oil), and something had to give. Japan is notorious for their pollution scandals. The next one will not disappoint, either. Just watch and wait.

Let's agree to disagree.

But, I will give you this, mercury is ALMOST as lethal. And hell, if your dead, it won't matter if it was mercury or strontium-90 that killed you.

China and India are doing a fantastically idiotic job of spewing out mercury from their factories and polluting the pacific ocean.

It's like some type of idiotic race of death.

Which will kill off sea life and humanity the fastest. Mercury from China and India OR radioactive contamination from Japan.

And for what? So some fuuccking corrupt idiots can stuff a few extra dollars in their pocket.

If greedy and corrupt humans could but just use some of that brain power on clean energy like solar, wind, hydro, tidal power, etc...

Nah, too much like right and sane. Humans will exterminate themselves being a bunch of not giving a damn about the planet they live on, their own children, being self centered, and greedy bastards.

Anybody for mercury and strontium-90 laced sushi?

I could see you were probably about to pass out from terror by the time you finished this rant. Try a little education, you obviously have some intelligence as you are fairly accurate about the toxins mercury and lead which by the way the body responds to radiation in the same manner as there are radiological and biological half lifes as well. see http://atomicinsights.com/fear-mongering-over...

1. You appear to not know what bio-accumulation is.

We are not talking about a 1 time event and 1 time exposure. Plants and animals CONTINUALLY accumulate radioactive material into their muscles and bones.

Radioactive material is CONCENTRATED in plants and animals over days, months, and years.

When you eat radioactive contaminated food, you are receiving massive doses ABOVE background and normal.

2. Strontium-90 has a half life of 28.8 years

Once Strontium-90 gets into your body and into your BONES, it will NEVER come out.

It will continually wreck havoc and destroy your DNA, as long as you live. Get enough into your system and you WILL get CANCER.

3. Tritium has also been found near Fukushima and has a half life of 12.3 years.

These are radioactive particles that are NOT going away soon and are CONSTANTLY being dumped in the ground water, pacific ocean, and contaminated the RAIN, vegetation, animals, and seafood.

4. The body has NO mechanism to defend itself once it has ingested and absorbed radioactive particles into muscle and bone.

The only "semi-defense" is that your body is saturated with iodine (to block radioactive iodine), potassium (to block radioactive cesium), magnesium and calcium (to block Strontium-90).

High levels of certain natural minerals will slow down the absorption rate and increase the levels that you excrete radioactive particles.

HOWEVER, your body must have MAX levels of iodine, potassium, magnesium, and calcium for this to semi-work.

Even so, you are simply decreasing the amounts of radioactive material that your body is absorbing, NOT stopping it and it does not stop CONTINUOUS exposure.

5. Fukushima is a CONTINUOUS radioactive source.

You are not talking about drinking 1 cup of radioactive contaminated water.

You are talking about CONTINUOUSLY being EXPOSED to radioactive contaminated water, vegetables, fruits, fish, and beef.

Month after month, year after year.

And the level of radioactive contamination that Fukushima spews out, is only INCREASING.

6. Fukushima can NOT be contained.

A. There has already been 3 melt downs and nuclear blobs are under the reactors. They can NOT be reached.

B. The nuclear spent fuel pools above the reactors can NOT be cleaned up with present technology. And it's extremely dangerous to try.

C. Another strong earthquake in the area would very likely cause a NUCLEAR FIRE, and so would any mistakes in trying to remove nuclear fuel rods. TEPCO and the Japanese government have CLEARLY shown the world they are incompetent, in addition to outright lying.

And a strong earthquake will cause many of the radioactive water storage tanks to burst.

D. The containers containing the radioactive water are LEAKING.

And will continue to LEAK, because they were cheaply made. More TEPCO stupidity.

E. TEPCO is creating MORE and MORE radioactive contaminated water, due to cooling the reactors, that has to be stored or DUMPED into the ocean.

TEPCO can NOT keep continuously storing all the radioactive contaminated water indefinitely. And a lot of it goes underground to contaminate the ground water, then to the ocean anyway.

TEPCO HAS to release radioactive water into the ocean.

F. Fuckushima is a problem that will NEVER stop for the next 100 years or unless a breakthrough technology is invented.

As all high radioactivity areas of the world attest, continuous low level exposure (Ramsar, Kerala, Yangjiang, Guarapari, Karunagappalli, Colorado) is much safer than intermittent high intensity exposure (Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and assorted nuclear/radiation accidents).

Fukushima will "stop" when people will get educated and understand the issues. Util people want to get hysterical, they will get hysterical

while BigOil and assorted cohorts are laughing all the way to the bank.

@BDV

You make no sense whatsoever, unless you are a nuclear power-plant or polluting factory owner.

Eating radioactive contaminated food, eating mercury, or breathing smoke from coal plants is not hysteria.

That is like saying injecting yourself with cyanide and dying from it is a myth. Whatever...

You may like eating mercury for breakfast or walking around highly radioactive areas, but you damn sure are not going to live if you do.

And it damn sure isn't good for nature or the world your children will inherit. Very sad to leave the children of the future a highly contaminated and poisoned world.

Real truth,
.
There is not "free lunch". Whatever source of energy mankind uses, it will have drawbacks.
.
Nuclear remains the one with the best benefit/cost ratio. And hydrocarbon burn products (soot) do remain the most carcinogenic products known to mankind, and still the standard method of carcinogenesis in studies. Not "ray-dee-ay-shun".
.
But because there is no hysteria campaign and everyone is accustomed to the smell of burned gasoline, the simpletons don't think twice about it.

Uranium nuclear reactors are STUPID. It's like playing Russian roulette with a gun to your head, except, using an ENTIRE city. And we have former President Richard Nixon and a long line of idiots for Fukushima. The reason they went with the present nightmare designs was for the additional bonus of creating nuclear weapons. The world doesn't need anymore fuuccking nuclear weapons, as we can destroy every major city on the planet several times over. And even if you want to make nuclear weapons, you need just 1 reactor or create a special facility for the purpose.

The Mark 1 Nuclear power plants are an unsafe and bad design, and even it's inventor thought so afterwards. Like seriously, let's store nuclear waste on the roof?

Thorium-based nuclear power is the safer and better way to go. And even the inventor of the Mark 1 nuclear power plant that idiot TEPCO uses, thought so, which is why he made the Thorium design later.

If a future nuclear power plant is not Thorium based, it should be SHUT DOWN.

CSP, specifically, concentrated solar power molten salt can be used. Along with wind, other solar solutions, hydro, thermal, and tidal.

There are a lot of clean energy solutions that can be used to replace nuclear. Ask the GERMANS. They said fuucck nuclear after seeing Fukushima. Destroying an entire city or the entire north-eastern part of your country isn't worth it.

Radiation and radioactivity have the strictest safety rules in place. If oil and coal would have similar rules, they'd be out of business. In due time people will have to learn to control their irrational fear. And to reign in their corporate-government Camarilla.
.
It can be done.
.
German renunciation of "nukular" means they'll be purchasing nuclear energy from the East, and eastern untermensch will be stuck with the nuclear risks. If Germans pay fair market value it is a fair trade-off.

Germans don't need nuclear and they won't have to purchase "nuclear energy from anywhere".

Enough is understood about clean energy alternatives that you can replace nuclear.

And I'm not anti-nuclear. Thorium-based nuclear power makes sense. However, using old Mark 1 designs and the standard uranium based nuclear power plants are STUPID and dangerous.

The time is now to switch to thorium.

Germans do not have enough energy. That's wh they buy precursors (gas petroleum) and electricity - from now nuclear electricity fom France and soon nucear electricty from Russia (Konigsberg plant) and likely Poland.
