8x More Babies Born Without Brains Near U.S. Nuclear Site Hanford

8x More Babies Born Without Brains Near U.S. Nuclear Site Hanford

Serious and sometimes fatal birth defects are much more prevalent right here than anywhere else in the country. Benton, Franklin and Yakima Counties are being hit the hardest by neural tube defects, from spina bifida to anencephaly [fatal defect where large part of brain/skull is missing]. “it’s scary that the cause of this is such a mystery,” said Candelaria Murillo. […] Rate of babies being born without a brain in our part of the state is eight times the national average. Read More »

Birth defect again found at high rate in south-central Washington

Birth defect again found at high rate in south-central Washington

Yakima, Benton and Franklin areas together signed seven cases of the unusual birth defect anencephaly in 2013, it all season of remarkably high numbers of cases, the state Department of Health reported Tuesday. Investigators are still trying to determine why the three-county area in the south-central part of the state is seeing so many cases of the fatal defect. Read More »

Caldicott – All of Japan contaminated by Fukushima — 64,000 Sq Km, 46 Million Contaminated

Caldicott - All of Japan contaminated by Fukushima — 64,000 Sq Km, 46 Million Contaminated

Dr. Helen Caldicott: Things are grim — it gets actually worse by the day. […] There have been 3 meltdowns, which is just unheard of in the history of nuclear age, Units 1, 2, and 3, so that means that molten cores of about 100 tons of uranium in 3 reactors have melted their way through 6 inches of steel in the reactor vessel through to the containment floors, possibly through feet of concrete and steel into the earth. >> Full broadcast here Read More »

Japan Allows Residents To Return To Fukushima Disaster ‘Hot Zone’

Japan Allows Residents To Return To Fukushima Disaster 'Hot Zone'

For the first time since Japan's Fukushima nuclear disaster more than three years ago, residents of a small district 20 km (12 miles) from the wrecked plant are about to be allowed to return home. The Miyakoji area of Tamura, a northeastern city inland from the Fukushima nuclear station, has been off-limits for most residents since March 2011, when the government ordered evacuations after a devastating earthquake and tsunami triggered a triple meltdown at the power plant.

Caldicott – Fukushima Radiation NEVER Stop Flowing Into Ocean

Caldicott - Fukushima Radiation NEVER Stop Flowing Into Ocean

Dr. Helen Caldicott: There seems to be no end in sight for this dreadful catastrophe. About 300 to 400 tons of radioactive water per day are pouring into the Pacific, have been for the last 3 years, and will continue probably for the rest of time because no one can find out where the molten cores of a hundred of seethingly hot uranium are. No one can get near them because they’re so radioactive, and the water will continue to flow over them, I guess, forever more. I can’t see any other way out of it. [...] I had the same reaction as you when two days after the tsunami and earthquake occurred [...] I got this feeling in the pit of my stomach [...] there is simply nothing anyone can do about it. And people are asking me all the time what can I take, what nutrients can I take? There’s nothing you can take to remove the radioactive elements from your body once you’ve eaten them. Read More »

More than 100 Navy members struggle for justice as radiation slowly kills them

More than 100 Navy members struggle for justice as radiation slowly kills them

When a historic earthquake created a massive tsunami that destroyed part of the Fukushima Daiichi power station in northern Japan in March 2011, causing meltdowns at three of the plant's six nuclear reactors, a radiological disaster ensued. As part of the effort to control damage and lend assistance, President Barack Obama ordered the U.S. Navy to respond to what would become the worst nuclear accident since the Chernobyl disaster in the former Soviet Union in the mid-1980s.
