"This is one of the best of a series of interviews with
on Fukushima by Alfred Webre which gives us a latest update and hits
important high points.
Of crucial importance to those of us living in the Pacific
Northwest and Southwest of B.C., particularly along the coastal
areas, is that we are inhaling up to 5 radioactive 'hot particles'
A 'hot particle' is generally a highly radioactive
particle with a very long term half life that most often lodges in
the lining of the lungs and causes constant local bombardment of one
particular area of tissue which eventually will cause cancer in that
area and faster in those with low immune systems. This means lung
cancer to those victims.
As well, cells passing near that particle
through the bloodstream have their DNA damaged and over time this
causes another threat to our health.
On top of all that, there is now an admitted
'melt through' in 3 of
the Fukushima reactors. This means the radioactive pool has melted
right through to the soil under the reactor buildings and
radioactivity is now entering the groundwater.
Does this mean that
groundwater radiation will eventually seep into the ocean? For sure
it means that those relying on groundwater for various uses are out
Also, there is a continuing massive release of radioactive water
into the Pacific Ocean east of Fukushima which will irradiate the
entire Pacific Ocean and then move with the Great Conveyor down
toward Australia, New Zealand and Antarctica. Over time, the oceans
of the world will be polluted.
For us along the coast of North
America it means that fish will soon be not safe to eat.
goes the massive Alaska fishery and the B.C. coastal fishery. There
goes another prime source of protein which is a necessary dietary
element to sustain a healthy, disease free body.
Further, the food
crops of the entire North American continent will become irradiated,
the higher radiation levels being nearer to the west coast. So thee
goes the vegetarian alternative too.
This just touches the 'tip of the iceberg' of this extinction level
