Now let’s look at the radiation itself ~ and in particular Cesium-137

“Gamma rays are the most penetrating of all radiations and can only be stopped by a very thick lead. Cesium-137 is one gamma emitter that is often released by nuclear reactors and one that has been found in larger quantities from Fukushima. Like Strontium-90, Cesium-137 also does an excellent job of confusing the body into thinking its potassium, collecting in the muscles. Iodine-131, which is another element found from Fukushima on U.S. soil, is both a gamma and beta emitter and focuses on penetrating the thyroid while affecting the surrounding tissue.”
The father of Health Physics, Dr. Karl Morgan stated, “There is no safe level of exposure and there is no dose of radiation so low that the risk of a malignancy is zero ~ All this said, there is no way we can avoid Cesium-137 in our food chain. It’s already here and will continue to accumulate until they are able to stop the leak at Fukushima. In the short term Iodine-131 is a concern, but with healthy eating and higher levels of iodine in your diet, you should be able to avoid some of these risks. I believe it’s important that we pay attention to the levels of Strontium-90 and Cesium-137 in the years to come.” See report:
In that regard and since I live in Northern California and relatively close to the coast ~ I have been supplementing higher levels of Iodine in my diet every day to further support my Thyroid.
Please also note, that the ongoing Fukushima ocean radiation contamination is still growing rapidly as witness these two Fukushima radioactive ocean impact maps dated March, 2011 and March, 2012.
March 2011 & March 2012
In six months that marine radiation ocean impact area will dwarf Hawaii and be approaching the West coast of America ~ and right now it is already affecting it.
Last year, President Obama told the American people that they should NOT prepare for radiation from the possible meltdown of the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan and that the radiation would never affect Hawaii.
Obama is dead wrong on both counts!
Mike Adams explains this outrage on Natural News ~ “ Here’s Obama’s exact quote: ‘The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and public health experts do not recommend people in the U.S. take precautionary measures beyond staying informed’ In other words, Americans should do nothing other than listen to their government. Don’t buy potassium iodide pills (even though the U.S. Surgeon General has already urged people to do so), don’t fuel up your automobiles in case you need to evacuate California, don’t store some extra food and water… basically, and don’t worry! There’s no problem! Obama says so!’
I stopped listening to and believing Obama some time ago, I’m already taking my potassium iodide pills and I’m prepared for the worst ~ because Fukushima is primed for a worldwide disaster.
The chances are very likely that you have already been affected by its leading edge of radiation contamination ~ either by the air you breathe or the food you eat.
