HAZARDS OF LOW LEVEL RADIOACTIVITY

AffectedDetail
INFERTILITYRadiation causes infertility. The global fertility rate has dropped by nearly half since 1955.
WEAKENED IMMUNE SYSTEM Radiation weakens the immune system. A hundred nation study on quality of health found the United States was number 1 in 1943. By 1992, the United States was number 100, according to a U.S. Public Health Statistics Report. Globally, health is deteriorating with the incidence of cancer, heart disease, allergies and infectious diseases increasing.
MUTATED VIRUS AND BACTERIA Even at low levels radiation may increase mutations of bacteria and virus. Mutations are causing the appearance of new diseases such as Reye's Syndrome, Legionnaires' Disease and Lyme Disease.
LOSS OF OXYGEN GLOBALLYThe percentage of oxygen in the air is down to about 19 percent. The standard reference amount is 21 percent. Oxygen is formed by trees and plankton. Trees and plankton can be killed by radiation.
OZONE BREAKDOWNLarge-scale breakdown of the protective ozone layer in the stratosphere was initiated in 1958 by high atmosphere bomb tests, and continues due to releases from nuclear power plants and reprocessing plants. Radioactive Krypton-85 goes to the stratosphere where it greatly enhances CFC ozone damage.

USA Hanford Nuclear Site Leaking Radioactive Waste HAZMAT Richland WA

Two lawsuits filed on the same day in Washington state claim the government failed to protect workers against nuclear waste gas emissions at the Hanford nuclear waste site. In a 16-month period, 50 nuclear gas leak incidents were reported.

They don’t have the monitoring equipment in place, they don’t have enough people to do the monitoring, and worst of all, Hanford officials have made it repeatedly clear that they don’t think there is a problem. We are taking this action today to protect our workers,” he added.

The waste is housed in 149 single-shell tanks and 28 double-shell tanks. The Energy Department said that all 149 of the single-shell tanks are unfit for use, and the contents should be transferred to double-shelled tanks. The tanks are designed to self-vent when the complex chemical waste undergoes continuous chemical reactions resulting in the production and build-up of gases/vapors.

The attorney general’s lawsuit says that exposure to the gases – which can include hydrogen, ammonia, mercury or benzene, among others – can cause adverse health effects such as “asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, central nervous system suppression…and cancers of the liver, lung, blood and other organ systems."

  • In the US there are 70 million CT scans which cause 29,000 cancers yearly. Is this safe?
  • Dental X-rays double your odds of getting thyroid cancer
  • Microwave ovens were banned in the Soviet Union in 1976 because of their known health dangers. Microwave Radiation changes the molecular structure of food, rendering it harmful and completely void of nutritional value.  Yet most North Americans use Microwave ovens daily.

Plutonium being pumped into ocean through miles of underwater pipes

Aug 31, 2015

The dumping of nuclear waste in the sea was banned worldwide in 1993, yet the nuclear industry has come up with other ways. They no longer dump the barrels at sea; they build kilometers of underwater pipes through which the radioactive effluent now flows freely into the sea.

Nuclear Expert: Plutonium in water leaking into ocean is “the most dangerous thing” at Fukushima, it can be carried around world and end up on a beach or in fish — Researcher: Plutonium contamination “a serious threat to environment and human health” (AUDIO) December 9, 2013

The Death of the Pacific Ocean

January 11, 2014

Possibly the greatest devastation on the environment since the 5th extinction of the earth thousands of years ago. The Pacific Ocean one a thieving world of coral reefs, thousands of species, kelp, seagrass and much more.

The vast ocean contains a large array of plant and animal life. Just a few days ago ocean monitoring sites off the coast of California have been testing and monitoring stations the ocean and ocean floor for over 24 years.
