MAINSTREAM MEDIA VS INDEPENDENT NEWS ON FUKUSHIMA RADIATION FALLOUTS: WHO TO BELIEVE? April 13, 2011 crizlai If you have been constantly following the Mainstream Media, we were told that a large numbers of food are all safe to consume. The FDA is in charge, after all. So it must really be safe. How true is this? The respective governments have always been saying about radiations and chemicals: If it’s invisible, it MUST be safe! It’s like saying that the cows are not contaminated but the grasses they ate are… What a joke! From an extract in the Natural news, it was learned that: The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) continues to release new data showing that various milk and water supply samples from across the US are testing increasingly high for radioactive elements such as Iodine-131, Cesium-134, and Cesium-137, all of which are being emitted from the ongoing Fukushima Daiichia nuclear fallout. As of April 10, 2011, 23 US water supplies have tested positive for radioactive Iodine-131 (http://opendata.socrata.com/w/4ig7-9eqd/y34g-bnf3?cur=TgjW3mRumyl&from=root), and worst of all, milk samples from at least three US locations have tested positive for Iodine-131 at levels exceeding EPA maximum containment levels (MCL) (http://opendata.socrata.com/w/pkfj-5jsd/y34g-bnf3?cur=w_bE5ToS3hx&from=root). Water may be the least of our problems, however. New EPA data just released on Sunday shows that at least three different milk samples – all from different parts of the US — have tested positive for radioactive Iodine-131 at levels that exceed the EPA maximum thresholds for safety, which is currently set at 3.0 pico Curies per Liter (pCi/l). In Phoenix, Arizona, a milk sample taken on March 28, 2011, tested at 3.2 pCi/l. In Little Rock, Arkansas, a milk sample taken on March 30, 2011, tested at 8.9 pCi/l, which is almost three times the EPA limit. In Hilo, Hawaii, a milk sample collected on April 4, 2011, tested at 18 pCi/l, a level six times the EPA maximum safety threshold. The same Hawaii sample also tested at 19 pCi/l for Cesium-137, which has a half life of 30 years (http://www.naturalnews.com/031992_radioactive_cesium.html), and a shocking 24 pCi/l for Cesium-134, which has a half life of just over two years (http://opendata.socrata.com/w/pkfj-5jsd/y34g-bnf3?cur=w_bE5ToS3hx&from=root). Why is this milk contamination significant? Milk, of course, typically represents the overall condition of the food chain because cows consume grass and are exposed to the same elements as food crops and water supplies. In other words, when cows’ milk starts testing positive for high levels of radioactive elements, this is indicative of radioactive contamination of the ENTIRE food supply. No safe level of radiation from nuclear fallout. Background and airplane radiation is an external emitter of radiation, while Fukushima-induced radiation in food and water is an internal emitter. The former, which is considered “normal” radiation, hits your body from the outside, while the latter goes directly inside your body and into your digestive tract. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see the immense difference between the two, and the much more severe consequences associated with literally ingesting radiation verses having it hit your skin. When you consume radioactive food, the threat to your health increases exponentially. That’s because internal radiation is far more deadly to your body than external radiation. It all comes down to the law of the inverse square of the distance between you and the radiation source. A speck of radioactive dust that’s one meter away from you, for example, is twice as dangerous as that same speck four meters away. But if you eat that radioactive speck as in whatever radiation contaminated food, it might only be a millimeter away from your internal tissues. You have now magnified the radiation intensity by one million times, even if that tiny speck has been labeled as a “low level”. After all, you are what you eat. If you eat radioactive cesium which had been absorbed into your “fresh” food, you quickly become a WALKING RADIOACTIVE TIME BOMB from the inside. It’s a matter of time before your “internal engines” break down and erupts… I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?
