The following piece of news is about the concern being expressed in the United States. Take that into perspective and think about how bad it is here in Tokyo!
“While numerous states (South Carolina, North Carolina, Florida, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, California, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington) have reported through their state agencies that radiation has been detected in drinking water, soil, and milk (among other things), the Federal regulatory agencies and their media subsidiaries refuse to admit that there is any reason for concern. Virtually every media report given about the Fukushima fallout contains the suggestion that the radiation now blanketing the United States is “harmless,” “minute,” or “miniscule,” and that there is no need for alarm.
Yet, these claims now stand in direct contradiction to the conclusions reached by the National Academies of Science released in 2005.
The BEIR VII — meaning the seventh Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation report on “Health Risks From Exposure to Low Levels of Ionizing Radiation” — came to a much different conclusion than the EPA, CDC, and the NRC. NAS actually concluded that there is NO SAFE LEVEL or threshold ionizing radiation exposure.
Read these original findings, and think about it for yourself! The authorities are making a fool of us by telling us that the current levels of radiation in Tokyo are safe not only to breathe in, but also to drink and eat!
