article imageOp-Ed: N. America's radiation threat: another mainstream news blackout

By Mindy Allan     May 4, 2012 in Health
It is odd that neither the Canadian nor the American mainstream news, nor any government agencies are speaking about the radiation that continues to flow into North America by way of the jet stream.
News that should be a priority isn't, and has been left up to the independent journalists of the world to report, like North America's radiation problem from Fukushima that continually is left out of mainstream news. Why?
Fukushima is not just a problem for the Japanese, but for the whole world that no one in charge wants to address. North America was the first continent to receive the first waves of radiation from the meltdown, and explosion at Fukushima. The Canadian government said no worries and that the Canadian Food Inspection Agency would not be testing the food, or milk, according to Vancouver Late Night in April of 2011.
Canadian's wanting more answers to the radiation levels in Canada are encouraged to attend the Canadian Radiation Protection Association's Annual Conference May 27-30, 2012 in Halifax, Nova Scotia at the Lord Nelson Hotel. In the U.S. the same thing is happening in Canada in regards to radiation news. On April 13, 2011 Arnie Gunderson reported on the lack of the U.S. government to inform people of how serious the Fukushima situation is, and that after the accident stopped monitoring radiation levels in the U.S. On April 17, 2011 an independent journalist reported what we now now are facts about Fukushima. This story should have been on mainstream news. Truth matters.
Health Canada removed nine supplementary fixed point detectors that were installed in British Columbia and the Yukon in response to the Fukushima nuclear incident. In addition, on September 15, 2011, Health Canada ended its weekly data postings, and Website Comprehensive Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) data reporting. No data to compare with the levels in Canada since last report in March 20ll. Now Health Canada refers to the radiation in the atmosphere as cosmic, and reports it is just part of everyday life.
In the U.S., there have been more independent journalists keeping up with the radiation reports, and on April 13, 2011 Dutchsinse weather phenomena addict, has consistently kept his followers in the U.S. informed on radiation, tornadoes, and HAARP activity, and also posted radiation levels before the Fukushima fallout plume hit the North American continent.. Compared to the most recent report of radiation levels released on April 30, 2012 that show an increase a substantial increase.
ENE News website that is continuing regular updates on radiation in North America keeping people informed on what is really happening with Fukushima, and the threat that continues flowing through the jet stream. In September of 2011 environmentalist research journalist Michael Collins who runs a radiation detection station in Los Angeles reveals some interesting facts about contaminated food in the US on Rense. Independent journalist Kevin Allen wants to know if the U.S. government is responsible, due to the fact that it was announced by President Obama there was no threat to the United States, or its people from the Fukushima fallout. Was he wrong? Who's really responsible for the medical bill if the cancer is from something that could only have been prevented, by the government.
We are now approaching Spring planting season, and the truth will be in the food. Mutations from the Fukushima radiation mentioned by Kevin Allen are occurring now in plants and animals in our environment. According to Digital Journal plants, animals have been photographed, and evidence recorded to back it up. At the Regulatory Information Conference held by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in Washington D.C. in March of 2012. Chairman of the NRC,Gregory Jaczko addressed the problems the Japanese people are facing from the disaster at Fukushima, but failed to mention the pending problem of radiation that continues to flow freely from Fukushima in the jet stream over North America. Arnie Gundersen a former nuclear power industry executive was in attendance and reported that just like Japan, North America, nor the NRC was, or is, prepared for a crises of this magnitude.
If everything is okay, and the public has nothing to worry about, why is the U.S. government ordering excessive amounts of food, ammunition, and anti-radiation tablets? If the government is getting ready, it wouldn't be wise to follow starting with a Geiger counter, to check the radiation levels in your food, and water. Iodine tablets are essential for everyone to have on hand, and from the preparations being made by the government, it does not look like things are getting better. Radiation, depending on the the amount a person is exposed to at one time has different effects on the body. It is important to be consuming foods with high amounts of iodine as a preventative.
We have entered an era where it is the people who will take care of the people, and like Japan if this happens anywhere else in the world, any nuclear plant the results will be the same as Japan. The worlds leaders are not prepared to deal with the dangers of nuclear power, the money was the only thing anyone saw when it came to future events. Were nuclear power plants built out of greed, and not necessity? David McNeill reports from Tokyo that the last of Japan's 54 nuclear reactors will be shut down May 5, 2012. One by one over the last fourteen months after routine checks, reactors were not re-activated. For the first time, since 1970 Japan is nuclear free! The Japanese have shown that they are willing to make sacrifices for this, as they did last summer when factories worked weekends and nights, schools closed and millions of Japanese voluntarily cut electricity use.
Fifty four reactors shut down, and guess what? The power is still on, so is the nuclear industry hoax? Was nuclear power ever really needed in this world? Executive director of Greenpeace International Kumi Naidoo believes nuclear energy isn't needed. What are your thoughts?
