|Radioactive isotopes are constantly spewed from the destroy Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant and are easily picked up by the jet stream and transported across the North Pacific in storm systems. When these weather fronts hit the mainland, the rains wash the radioactive particles out of the air and spreads them over everything that receives precipitation. The US West Coast and especially British Columbia, specifically the Vancouver area, get hit the hardest. As the jet stream migrates up and down the coast during the rainy season, the highest levels of radioactivity will accumulate, logically, in the areas of higher rainfall. The more the rain, the higher the radiation concentration in the soil. The radiation, of course, is not all washed out at once and continues to be transported and dumped on the US and Canada from West to East with measurable amounts of contamination ultimately having been recorded in multiple locations of Europe. Note – Some winter storm systems come upward from the tropics and the Hawaii area (known as the ‘pineapple express’ storms) are much less contaminated. Everything from trees to shrubs and all agricultural crops uptake the Fukushima radiation from the now contaminated soil and eventually spread through the entire food chain. Nothing is spared. The hay and grasses growing in contaminated soil are consumed by beef and dairy cattle and that is how radiative isotopes wind up in the animals and their milk products. That’s why Cesium 137 was found in the milk of Vermont dairy cattle in the months after the 3-11 disaster…and that is why you’ll hear nothing from the EPA about radiation in our crops, meat and dairy products. Only covered greenhouses were and are spared being hit with radioactive rains.|

(OMNS May 14, 2012) People have been misinformed about the tragedy at Fukushima and its consequences. There is a continuing cover up, the reactors have not been stabilized, and radiation continues to be released. The Japanese College of Intravenous Therapy (JCIT) has recently released a video for people wishing to learn more about how to protect themselves from contamination by taking large doses of vitamin C.
All four parts of the video are also available here http://firstlaw.wordpress.com/. Readers may link to, embed in their webpages, and make copies of the video for free distribution.
Japanese Government Minimizes Danger; Ignores Vitamin C
In the fall of 2011, JCIT presented a study that Fukushima workers had abnormality gene expression, which may be avoided using dietary antioxidants, especially vitamin C. The data was presented in Japan, Taiwan, and Korea. The JCIT sent letters to the government urging the government to tell the people how they may protect themselves from radiation. To date, the recommendation has been ignored by Japanese government and TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Company).
Linus Pauling gained the Nobel Peace Prize in part based on his calculations of the number of deaths from nuclear weapons fallout. He was supported by physicist and father of the Soviet bomb Andrei Sakharov, who also later received the Nobel Prize for peace. These and other scientists estimated that there would be an extra 10,000 deaths worldwide for each megaton nuclear test in the atmosphere. A nuclear reactor can contain much more radioactive material than a nuclear weapon. Fukushima had six reactors, plus stored additional radioactive material and nuclear waste.
How Radiation Damages Cells
Ionizing radiation acts to damage living tissue by forming free radicals. Essentially, electrons are ripped from molecules. Removing an electron from an atom or molecule turns it into an ion, hence the term ionizing radiation. X-rays, gamma rays, alpha- and beta-radiation are all ionizing.
Most of the damage occurs from ionizing radiation generating free radicals in water, as water molecules are by far the most abundant in the body. While avoiding unnecessary exposure to ionizing radiation is clearly preferable, people affected by Fukushima do not have the luxury of avoiding contamination.
Antioxidants: Free-Radical Scavengers
Free-radical scavengers, as the name suggests, mop up the damaging radicals produced by radiation. The more common term for free radical scavenger is antioxidant. Antioxidants replace the electrons stripped from molecules by ionizing radiation. Antioxidants have long been used in the treatment of radiation poisoning.[3-7] Most of the harm from ionizing radiation occurs from free radical damage which may be quenched by the free electrons antioxidants provide. Fortunately, safe antioxidants are widely available as nutritional supplements. Vitamin C is the prime example.
Why Vitamin C?
Vitamin C is of particular importance and should be included at high intakes for anyone trying to minimize radiation poisoning. High dose vitamin C provides continual antioxidant flow through the body. It is absorbed from the gut and helps to replenish the other antioxidants. When it is used up, it is excreted in the urine. Importantly, it can chelate, or grab onto, radioactive heavy metal atoms and help eliminate them from the body. Large dynamic flow doses of vitamin C (about 3,000 mg, taken 4 times a day for a total of 12,000 mg) would exemplify antioxidant treatment. Higher doses have been used by Dr. Atsuo Yanagisawa and colleagues. [8,9]
Shortly after the disaster, Dr. Damien Downing described how supplements can help protect against radioactive fallout. OMNS issued an update on the response to Fukushima in Japan. Recently, Dr. Gert Schuitemaker has provided a review of vitamin C as a radio-protectant for Fukushima contamination.
Persons living in the areas affected by radioactive contamination can take antioxidant supplements, especially high doses of vitamin C, to counteract the negative consequences of long-term low dose radiation exposure, as well as to protect the health of coming generations.[12,13] People who have a possible internal or external radiation exposure should take antioxidant supplements to maintain an optimal antioxidant reserve. Because of the enormous size and oceanic spread of Fukushima contamination, this literally applies to everyone.
|“The International Society for Orthomolecular Medicine is pleased to have participated in the making of this important DVD on the protective effects of intravenous vitamin C on radiation exposure from the Fukushima nuclear plant in March 2011. We are in full support of the valuable work of Dr. Yanagisawa and his colleagues, and we very much appreciate the commitment of Mr. Daisuke Shibata, who has made it possible for the free distribution of the video around the world. May this orthomolecular message raise awareness and foster improvement in the treatment of radiation exposure.” Steven Carter Director, International Society for Orthomolecular Medicine|

The official story is that hundreds of flight attendants that are having hair fall out and itchy skin rashes because of new uniforms but I’m not buying it! Here’s the official story where they blame hair falling out and skin rashes on the uniforms they got in 2011. They say it’s because of Tributyl phosphate which MAY be embedded in the uniform. Sounds pretty fishy to me and I’m not buying this explanation for a second! One clue comes in the statement from one of the attendants that said the problem surfaced when they flew 6-7 days in a row. The longer you are exposed to high levels of radiation the sooner you develop symptoms of radiation sickness.
The reason I believe that the Alaskan Airlines Flight attendants could be getting sick from the radiation is because those 3 hour flights between Seattle and Anchorage are getting hit with some of the highest radiation levels anywhere right now! I’ve taken those flights in the 80s and 90s dozens of times when I used to live in Alaska and travelled to the “Lower 48″ as we called it. They are quite long and they fly high to be above the turbulence. So you’ve long flights at high altitude in probably the worst area for radiation in the world right now. Look at the map below and you’ll see that the highest radiation you could possibly get would be flying between Seattle and Anchorage all the time!
There’s no question that flight attendants are going to be getting hit with far more radiation now than they were before Fukushima began spewing it’s deadly poison. Who really knows how bad it is because the government shut down all the radiation monitors as soon as Fukushima began melting down! They also won’t even monitor the food for radiation! They love us so much!
If radiation is hitting these attendants at hundreds of times more radiation than it used to do before Fukushima then I say it’s very probable that after being exposed to it for weeks, months and even a year now then the first signs of radiation sickness would be felt by those attendants on these 3 plus hour flights between Seattle and Anchorage. It just makes sense. I urge any flight attendant to get their urine tested for radioactive elements and to cut way back on their flights to see if that helps. My bet is that cutting their flight times will reduce these symptoms no matter what uniform they wear. It seems ludicrous to me that Alaskan Airlines wouldn’t replace all the uniforms IMMEDIATELY but maybe they are delaying because if they go to new ones and the problems persist then they will really have a mutiny on their hands! Flight attendants go on many more flights than the pilots since there are more rules for pilots and they only let them fly so many hours per month. So I would expect the flight attendants to show signs of radiation sickness first.
Polar Bears, Seals and More Missing Fur and Exhibiting Sores All Over Their Bodies
Of course we know that Polar Bears seals and other wildlife in Alaska have been spotted with missing fur and strange sores all over their body. You can read about this here. I will bet you $5 that this is radiation sickness because nobody had ever seen it before Fukushima. The Eskimos had never seen it and they’ve been there a VERY long time! Of course the “officials” won’t admit it but they have no answers on what is causing it which I find patently absurd also.
Nuclear Power is a HUGE scam that has NEVER been needed and MUST be shut down NOW!
Nuclear power is destroying our entire way of life! It’s in the air, water and food now and rapidly spreading. Our Fake News won’t mention it at all of course because their job is to keep you asleep! Not one mainstream Fake News outlet has even mentioned about shutting these stupid nuclear reactors even though it’s very likely that our sun will cause a global power outage within the next 3 years! A global power outage caused by a massive blast of energy from our sun would cause hundreds of these reactors to melt down with hours! This is INSANITY! We must shut down all these reactors NOW and begin deploying Tesla zero point energy devices that can power every home and vehicle on the planet for free! The sick joke is that we haven’t needed even one of these nuclear reactors and they have already KILLED and MAIMED millions. Nuclear reactors were put there to control the power system and make the stuff they use for nuclear warheads. As Einstein said, “It’s a hell of a way to boil water!”
How Do You Know When the “Authorities” are Lying – When Their Lips are Moving!
When have we EVER been able to really trust the “authorities” anyway? They’ve lied to us about Fukushima, GMO, Chemtrails, Fluoride, Aspartame, the Federal Reserve and so much more so anything they say must be carefully examined because most of the time they will absolutely lie to us. We talk about all the lies they have told us on Project Nsearch all the time. It’s time for ALL of us to wake up to reality. The criminals and liars are running the asylum! How did it get this way? Because most of you turn on your TV and get lied to each night by your mainstream news! When you finally figure out just how badly you’ve been lied to by your TV news you will never pay to get brainwashed again! You will get active and spread the truth as if your life depended on it because it DOES!
