Just a Harmless Little Radiation Plume Headed Our Way?

The radioactive particles from Japan's disaster are set to arrive in Southern California late Friday according to the New York Times.  Regardless of the government's claims of low radiation levels, based on its track record the information simply can't be trusted.

As I stated in yesterday's post, the primary reason we can't trust the U.S. or Japan governments is that they're in bed with the nuclear energy industry.  As with BP and the oil spill, the nuclear industry will sacrifice human life to maintain their objectives of global growth for its industry.  To this day we still don't really know the extent of BP's oil spill damage they covered up with a highly toxic chemical corexit except that many people are still sick and dying on the gulf coast. See video BP Oil Spill - Kindra Arnesen's Message to the World.

There are many other reasons why we can't trust what the U.S. government is telling us about radiation levels based on their track record for lying alone.  A good example is when the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) lied to zero ground workers on 9/11 telling them that the air was safe to breath when it turned out otherwise. Hundreds of workers have since died and are still dying from the disaster from breathing in toxic chemicals.
"The same people telling us that the levels are minuscule and the radiation 'harmless', are from the same organizations who assured us that the Chernobyl disaster only killed 9,000 people, when in reality it exposed 550 million Europeans, and 150 to 230 million others in the Northern Hemisphere to notable contamination and led to nearly a million deaths.
Assurances that the majority of the radiation plume will disperse over the Pacific Ocean are also glib, given how the Chernobyl radiation cloud smothered most of the northern hemisphere within a week. Remember, experts are calling this crisis 'Chernobyl on steroids', if the worst comes to the worst the radiation cloud could affect the entire globe. - U.S. Government Cannot Be Trusted on Radiation Levels - Paul Watson, Prison

According to a 2010 book published by the New York Academy of Sciences "Nearly one million people around the world died from exposure to radiation released by the 1986 nuclear disaster at the Chernobyl reactor."  According to today's New York Times article, in Russia, people are ignoring their officials assurances that there is no danger and are beginning to stockpile food, medicines and face masks.  "People are in a panic," said Dmitri Mukhotin, a spokesman for Pharma Premium that sells iodine products. See Fear of Fallout From Japan Spreads to Russia.

A good site to visit to check on radiation levels is that has a geiger counter and live time web cam set up in Santa Monica California.  Anything above a reading of 100 is abnormal radiation levels.

I've since been doing more research on how to protect one's health during these radioactive times.  The sad thing is there isn't anywhere nearly enough potassium iodide to go around, the inventory in the U.S. was depleted within a few days of the disaster.  One 14 pill pack of PI sold on eBay for $600 a couple days ago if that's any indicator. Potassium iodide is used to fill up the thyroid with iodine so it won't soak up any radiation.  Americans are known to be greatly deficient in iodine for their thyroids. The potassium iodide's only meant to be used only when exposed to large amounts of radiation.

As far as using kelp iodine or other similar iodines to protect one's self for the disaster, unless you've been taking dosages and building it up in your system for a while, this kind of naturally derived iodine won't do much of anything for what's coming.  So basically, without potassium iodide or long term use of another iodine most all of us are vulnerable to radiation poisoning. I unknowingly began taking iodine a few months ago using this product  and this other immune boosting system product but don't know at what level so I'm in the dark.  I don't believe one weeks use of kelp iodine gel capsules is enough either.

A YouTuber's top rated comment on the BP oil spill of Kindra's video (link also listed above):
They don't care cause they WANT us to die. Their inaction speaks volumes.
the gov of the USA is raping and murdering our happy way of life and destroying our home planet we're MEANT to protect.  They're not FIT to lead ANYONE.THEY are terrorists!! 
Kindra, your not seeing the big picture. The problem is the fact the the USA has been sold the the highest bidder. Corporations control the Government. The Government is not worried about it because the corporations NOT YOU get them into office. Money talks. The fix is simple but hard to implement, GET corporations out of government. ONLY THEN CAN WE START TO FIX THE REAL PROBLEMS.

So the bottom line is people are really on their own. Many governments of this world have recklessly conducted themselves without regard for people's safety.  If Japan really cared about the well being of their people and the world, they wouldn't have built dozens of nuclear reactors with their partner General Electric in a land that has one 8.5 earthquake every 5 years.  Truly insane!
