Fukushima News: It Is Getting Worse

Fukushima News:  Fukushima Is Getting Worse

Fukushima

 

Fukushima is getting more out of hand and at the rate they are going–Japan, TEPCO and indirectly GE (who built the plant and is apparently consulting on the disaster)–they are going to significantly damage the food supply, the health of citizens, not just in Japan but all of North America.

I’d trust the Keystone Cops more with handling the Fukushima disaster more than the current corporations and governments.

Clearly from Alaska, Canada, the West Coast and down the west coast of Mexico will be severely damaged.

The dumping of seawater on the reactors only served to corrode the structures with the remaining fuel rods. Now, according to some scientists, the radiation is in the ground and going down towards the groundwater.

So while the Japanese Government/TEPCO start the building of an “Ice Wall”, TEPCO has been dumping and continues to dump hundreds of tons of radioactive water directly into the Pacific Ocean.

Does one have to be a scientist to have enough common sense that this ongoing nuclear radioactive waste dumping is going to eventually go around the world through weather and water currents?

One independent scientist, radiation expert, Leuren Moret, is even saying that Hawaii and the Pacific Islands are now unsafe for human habitat and swimming in the Pacific Ocean.

Whether she is wrong or right, considering the tract record of Japan and TEPCO with Fukushima, do you just really want to do nothing and watch from the sidelines? Or do you think that you should be investigating how to detox your body? Or how to boost your immune system? Or how to reduce the production of free radical production within your body? What about how to filter your water should Fukushima contaminate our groundwater, whether from its direct dumping or the radiation being brought to the use through rain, snow and weather patterns?

Feel free to share your thoughts.

 

 

Fukushima Update: They Don’t Know What To Do…Hide Your Sins and They’ll Go Away!

 

Fukushima

Apparently Fukushima Execs and the Japanese Government have no way to deal with the leaking radioactive waste.  Their Solution:  Dump all of it in the Pacific?  See this article:  They’re Going to Dump the Fukushima Radiation Into the Ocean

If this article is right and TEPCO is allowed to dump the massive amount of radioactive water they’ve collected (independent of the 300 tons per day they’re dumping into the ocean), the US is in for an ugly, ugly situation.  Their radioactive waste will get in our soil and food supply.  From what I can see ingesting this stuff internally is more of a problem than any other mode of exposure.

So what does it mean for the health of our countrymen?  Read this in-depth article which shares several studies on the effects of nuclear radiation on humans:  What Is The ACTUAL Risk for Pacific Coast Residents from Fukushima Radiation?

Actually in some ways I am a little relieved.  TEPCO was going to try something never tried before using a robot to remove the approximate 1,100 spent fuel rods from the pools.  All we needed to have a cataclysmic event was two of those rods to come in contact with each other.  Considering the deceptive and incompetent tract record of TEPCO and the Japanese government, they most likely would have dropped a rod or touched another one trying to remove them.

But this solution of dumping all of their radioactive wastes in the ocean, contaminating other nations and our oceans, is no solution.  The plant will continue to spew the waste.  It’s like treating the symptoms but not the causation or problem.

So now it looks like Americans, engaging in individual and family risk management trying to protect their health, have these options: 

We need to be more vigilant about the quality of our food sources.  (The Koreans are already using Geiger counters in food markets trying to avoid contaminated seafood.) 

Reduce our intake of seafood unless we know it comes from areas other than the Pacific Ocean and Gulf of Mexico where the BP Deepwater Oil Spill did an incredible amount of damage to our ecosystem. 

Get their health in better shape.  Our thyroid should operate at maximum efficiency since it is the first line of defense.  We need to boost our immune system and resolve our gastrointestional issues.  Eighty percent (80%) of our immune system is in our gastrointestinal tract.

Assess what vitamins and minerals are needed.  Eat a diet that high in antioxidants and with alkaline foods.

Be more diligent about detoxing.  When you detox it helps your liver, colon, kidneys and skin function better.

We can’t wait on our government to protect us.  This is a matter of individual responsibility.

 

 

 

Dr. William Davis: The Modern Wheat Is the Perfect Chronic Poison

Dr. William Davis: The Modern Wheat Is the Perfect Chronic Poison

Look at this short video interview of Dr. William Davis about modern wheat.  He says it is actually more toxic to you than GMOs.  If that is true, things are really, really bad.

I’ve been avoiding wheat for a long time.  No crackers, bread, rolls, croutons, etc.  I try hard to buy gluten free foods.  The only time I get wheat is when I eat out a hamburger with friends or have an occasional piece of cake or brownies.  I guess now I will stop eating those too.

Do you realize that this could stop within one growing season if our food processing companies would demand wheat without gladin?  Why do we support these food processing companies, which apparently care more about their profits than their customers’ health?  Whether we like it or not, our purchases of food (and who we purchase from) either support our health or contribute to our illnesses.

Next time you go to the grocery store, read the labels and think before you purchase.–No Name Attorney

Modern Wheat Is The ‘Perfect Chronic Poison’ Says Expert

The world’s most popular grain is also the deadliest for the human metabolism. Modern wheat isn’t really wheat at all and is a “perfect, chronic poison,” according to Dr. William Davis, a cardiologist, author and leading expert on wheat.

Approximately 700 million tons of wheat are now cultivated worldwide   making it the second most-produced grain after  maize.  It is grown on   more land area than any other commerical crop and is considered a staple   food for humans.

At some point in our history, this ancient grain  was nutritious in some respects, however modern wheat really isn’t wheat at all.   Once  agribusiness took over to  develop a higher-yielding     crop,   wheat became hybridized to such an extent that it has been completely   transformed from it’s prehistorical genetic configuration. All nutrient   content of modern wheat depreciated more than 30% in its natural   unrefined state compared to its ancestral genetic line. The balance and   ratio that mother nature created for  wheat was also modified and  human   digestion and physiology could simply could not adapt quick enough to   the changes.

Think About Adding Resveratrol To Your Diet

Think About Adding Resveratrol To Your Diet

We need to think about incorporating more resveratrol into our diets and supplement taking. 

If Big Pharma is coming close to purportedly developing a drug to combat aging and help people live to 150 years old using a synthetic form of resveratrol, then don’t you think we need to do our our own research?

You may say well I’ll just wait until they develop the drug.  But is that wise?  Assuming that their synthetic form has no problems, why pay their high drug prices and be dependent on them?  Moreover, don’t you think it would be better to take natural supplements rather than synthetic ones?  After all synthetic drugs carry with them additional side effects, i.e., look at the issues surrounding Premarin.  (This is one of many synthetic drugs.)

I have no interest in living until I am 150 years old.  However, I would like to reduce my inflammation and other chronic conditions.  I don’t want to battle a life threatening illness for years (especially after my 6 year battle with serious life threatening and serious co-morbidity situations.  I just want to be able to live an active, relatively pain free lifestyle and enter eternity during sleep.  What about you?  –No Name Attorney

New drug being developed using compound found in red wine ‘could help humans live until they are 150’

  • Drugs are synthetic versions of resveratrol, found in red wine
  • Research shows drugs which could prevent cancer and diabetes now viable
  • Medication can be taken topically or orally
  • No drugs yet developed to target aging skin

Breakthrough: The new anti-aging drugs are synthetic versions of resveratrol which is found in red wine

Breakthrough: The new anti-aging drugs are synthetic versions of resveratrol which is found in red wine

Drugs that could combat ageing and help people to live to 150-years-old may be available within five years, following landmark research.

The new drugs are synthetic versions of resveratrol which is found in red wine and is believed to have an anti-ageing effect as it boosts activity of a protein called SIRT1.

Pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline has been testing the medications on patients suffering with medical conditions including cancer, diabetes and heart disease.

The work proves that a single anti-ageing enzyme in the body can be targeted, with the potential to prevent age-related diseases and extend lifespans.

As each of the 117 drugs tested work on the single enzyme through a common mechanism is means that a whole new class of anti-ageing drugs is now viable, which could ultimately prevent cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and type 2 diabetes.

Genetics professor David Sinclair, based at Harvard University, said: ‘Ultimately, these drugs would treat one disease, but unlike drugs of today, they would prevent 20 others.

‘In effect, they would slow ageing.’

The target enzyme, SIRT1, is switched on naturally by calorie restriction and exercise, but it can also be enhanced through activators.

The most common naturally-occurring activator is resveratrol, which is found in small quantities in red wine, but synthetic activators with much stronger activity are already being developed.

Although research surrounding resveratrol has been going on for a decade, until now the basic science had been contested.

Learn to Read Food Labels

Major food companies import food from China.  Did you know many of the mandarin oranges are grown in China?  Research and you will find many issues with Chinese agricultural practices and government practices that condone or attempt to hide the issues. Dole Mandarin Oranges come from China.  Does that motivate you to go purchase this product?

 

This past weekend I gave a talk (with Q & A’s from the audience–love those! :)) about how to read food labels.  (BTW if your group would like me to speak about this issue, food politics, etc. just send me an email to thrive@northstate.net and we’ll discuss it.)

Unfortunately still too many people do not understand the issues about genetically modified (GMO) or genetically engineered (GE) foods, MSG, “hidden MSG”, aspartame or rbgh and rbst.

Just as important as those issues is the origin of the country where the foods are grown.  Let’s face it, some countries have better agricultural practices than others.  I know that I want to avoid as much as possible all imported foods from China or Southeast Asia.  Beyond their questionable agricultural practices, government corruption and history of contaminated food, I try my best to avoid buying products from China.  Our nation owes them too much money and some day we are going to get a much nastier boomerang than we are currently experiencing from this foreign trade imbalance.

I came across this article that has a basic explanation of the “organic” labeling program with some links for research.  I hope it conveys one reason why reading your food labels are important for your health and your purse!  –No Name Attorney

Organic Labels Come in Different Shapes and Sizes

Organic labels and their cousins abound. Here’s a look at some of the most  important labels consumers will see in grocery stores.

By Brian Clark Howard

Labeling may not seem like a particularly exciting topic, but it is extremely  important to those with nut allergies, diabetics and those busy people  everywhere who rely on labels to know what’s inside the foods they eat. Consider  the heated controversy over whether genetically engineered foods should be  explicitly labeled, or the ongoing fight over country-of-origin seals and how  that relates to recent scares over food imported from China.  When it comes to the much-touted word “organic,” there is much at stake. Not  only is the sector the fastest growing in the food industry, but also advocates  are positioning organics as a great hope in the battle to protect the  environment from the ravages of industrial agriculture and even oil-fueled  climate change. There are perhaps as many detailed definitions of “organic” as  there are farmers, chefs and consumers. But here are some of the most important  labels:
