The mainstream media are ignoring (covering up) the radiation danger posed by the Fukushima Nuclear Reactor disaster. But the situation is critical and poses a health risk to people around the globe.
Radiation readings are elevated along California’s coast. Sea stars are melting in the Pacific Ocean. And a report presented to the October 2013 North Pacific Marine Science Organization’s annual meeting by Researchers from Fisheries and Oceans Canada confirmed that the radioactive plume from Fukushima is reaching the shores of Canada and the United States — and was detected at least six months ago — carried both in the ocean surface water and the atmosphere on similar, but slightly different, courses.
Here are some more signs the radiation is here, as cataloged by Natural Society:
- Tuna caught off the coast of California are contaminated with radiation. One test that studied 15 tuna found that all 15 had radiation contamination above and beyond what is normal for that area. Cesium-134 and cesium-137, which the fish were contaminated with, does not sink to the ocean floor, but rather contaminates the sea at all levels where fish swim through it, ingest it, or eat organisms that have already ingested it. Interestingly, the scientists who tested the fish didn’t expect to find contamination, and were sadly proven wrong.
- Something is causing herring to bleed from their gills, bellies, and eyeballs, according to Canada.com. It’s believed these symptoms could be a sign of viral hemorrhagic septicemia that could be spread into salmon and other fish varieties. While not proven to be linked to Fukushima radiation, there is little doubt the radiation could be impacting immune function of the fish, leading to higher rates of disease.
- Sockeye salmon populations at historic lows. Recreational and non-aboriginal fisheries in an area of British Columbia have been shut down due to record low numbers of sockeye salmon. Fukushima radiation may be to blame.
- Radiation off West coast is expected to double in coming years. Projections from German oceanographers estimate radiation levels from Fukushima will cause continued increases in West coast contamination over the next five to six years.
- Fish imported from Japan is already contaminated. The Vancouver Sun tested fish imports from Japan and found cesium-137 at alarming rates, contaminating 73 percent of mackerel, 91 percent of halibut, 92 percent of sardines, 93 percent of tuna, 94 percent of cod and anchovies, and 100 percent of the carp, seaweed, shark and monkfish.
- Radioactive plume expected to reach U.S. coastal waters soon. A large plume of radiation is expected to begin flowing into the coastal waters in the beginning of 2014 and continue throughout 2016. If we’re only thus far seeing the tip of the iceberg, what’s to come could be truly frightening.
- There is an epidemic of sea lion deaths along the California coastline.
- We could see very high levels of cancer along the West coast due to contaminated fish consumption.
Thousands of gallons of radioactive water are spilling into the sea every day. Though the MSM and the government are turning a blind eye, there is a serious health risk for West Coast residents and in eating Pacific seafood.
