In March of 2011, an earthquake caused a tsunami to his the coast of Japan. This tsunami wreaked havoc when it hit an in area which included the Fukushima Diachi power plant. The tsunami caused three of the nuclear reactors to melt down, and now the long term effects of this disaster are becoming evident.

The process by which the radiation is reaching the Pacific Ocean is through groundwater. Groundwater makes contact with the reactors that are leaking radiation. This groundwater is then highly radioactive, and it seeps into the Pacific Ocean. This process has been confirmed by the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), which waited a year after the melt down happened to tell anyone about the Pacific Ocean being contaminated. To make matters worse, three hundred tons of contaminated water are going into the Pacific Ocean every day. TEPCO also tried a solution. They tried to make a “freeze wall” by freezing the ground and water in the contaminated water’s path. Unfortunately, the melted-down reactor cores are too hot for this to be possible.

Now the radioactive contamination is really taking its toll. First, animals started mysteriously dying off in the United States. White-tailed deer started dying in very large numbers. Hundreds of fish appeared dead on a couple of lakes’ surfaces and shores. These events are nothing the world has not heard of before, but there were more and more reports of animals dying off after the power plant experienced a melt down. Still, the animal die-offs did not prove anything.

One recent article, “SURPRISE! You’re eating Fukushima Radiation; Bloody Cancerous Tumors in Fish and Seafood,” by U.S. Reporter, reports that fish in the Pacific Ocean are dying. Those which are alive and caught have internal and external cancerous tumors. Fishermen have been catching tuna, sockeye salmon, and other species of fish that have large, bloody tumors and people are finding salmon meat riddled with small tumors.

It is not just fish that have irregular growths on them, though. Other animals, like star fish, walruses, shrimp, and seals have been discovered with tumors; even a great white shark was seen with a one square foot tumor. That was the first recorded great white shark to get a tumor. Polar bears have also been losing hair, and a coral fish was found with skin cancer, the type which affects humans. That was also an historic first. Another article, “Unprecedented” by ENENEWS reports a blue whale that washed up dead on Oregon shores. It was sick and emaciated.

If all that is not enough proof of damage being done to the Pacific Ocean and the surrounding areas, then here is some more: the fish that have tumors have been tested 100% positive for radiation.

While people are busy eating radioactive fish, the U.S. government has done nothing about the Fukushima situation, even though soon it will be affecting the Western states. And since all the oceans are connected,  Fukushima radiation will be affecting more than just the Pacific Ocean.

So for now, animals in the Pacific Ocean area are being killed by radiation poisoning, trapped in a radioactive surrounding. And we are trapped as well, as we wait for the radiation to show its effects on us. And like the animals, we are helpless to stop what is sure to come.

Just as various sea animals such as dolphins and sea lions in the Pacific Ocean were dying, orcas (killer whales) are also dying near the West Coast. A lot of mothers are pregnant, but don’t actually give birth; they die before they can. If they manage to live long enough to give birth, the calves are either stillborn or they die shortly after being born. In addition to young killer whales dying, older whales are dying as well; they are dying before they should from old age.

In September (of 2014, presumably), a first calf to be born in two years, lived less than a month. The last surviving calf was from August 2012, and Ken Balcomb (Center For Whale Research in Friday Harbor, Washington) says that they need at least two or three births a year to keep the population up, but they like for there to be four or five births for a healthy and growing population.

Some people think these deaths are caused by the radiation from Fukushima. There isn’t definite proof that the radiation is what is killing them, but the orcas are in the direct path of the radiation making its way across the Pacific, so it’s a pretty good guess.

If one nuclear power plant melt down can cause so many problems (and it isn’t over yet), wouldn’t it seem logical to shut down the rest of the plants, especially those made with the exact same design?

The Fukushima Daiichi power plant in Japan had a meltdown caused by a tsunami that hit Japan. That was in 2011. One might think that it would have died down a bit, but no. It’s still putting radiation into groundwater and the ocean, and it’s also going into the air and traveling across the Pacific Ocean to the Americas.

Arnie Gunderson, who is a nuclear expert, says that the worst from Fukushima is still to come; we aren’t at the peak yet.

A year after Fukushima happened, dolphins were found dead on a beach in Peru and it’s been happening occasionally ever since; various marine animals have been found dead on the shores of South America. Recently, 500 dead sea lions were found on Peru’s north coast. Again, there was no explanation given, but the government refuses to make any connection between the deaths and Fukushima. We’re not saying that it is necessarily because of Fukushima, but it certainly is very possible. The government isn’t mentioning it, though. Why? It’s an ongoing problem, and we think that all people should know about it.

Fukushima is still very much a problem and its effects upon all of us will unfortunately be made clear one day. Yet it seems like no one is interested in putting a stop to the massive leaking of radiation. Thank you, O Powers That Be.

The Fukushima Daiichi Power Plant is something every grown person should know about. Unfortunately, many people display blank stares when you say “Fukushima”. My mother has mentioned Fukushima to several of her friends and they all said, “Whaat? Fuku-what?”. Regular people going about their regular lives seem to not know that Fukushima is still a very serious issue these days.

In case you do not know what Fukushima is, back in the spring of 2011, a Japanese power plant experienced a meltdown caused mostly by the tsunami that hit Japan. This power plant has been spewing radiation ever since.

Nascent Iodine helps protect you from radiation in addition to offering a whole host of health benefits. It is a unique form of iodine that is rapidly absorbed and used by the body when taken. Giving support to your thyroid, nascent iodine is a biochemically consumable iodine that is in an atomic form rather than a molecular form. It holds tons of energy until diluted in water and consumed. It then loses energy over a 2–3 hour time span. However, during this time, nascent iodine is recognized by the body as the same iodine that is used by the thyroid. It is then absorbed. This particular form of iodine is unique and well known to offer beneficial effects that you will find in no other form of iodine. It is very vital to have a lot of iodine in your thyroid, especially now, because it is estimated that more than 90% of Americans suffer from a lack of iodine and iodine protects against radiation and other toxins.

If you want to read more on nascent iodine, here is one of the best websites you can go to:

We like the nascent iodine that we get. It’s made by Dr. Edward Group. Some members of our family have felt a boost of energy after taking it for several days and I personally like that it does not taste bad at all. If you take it with water, it tastes exactly like sugar water.
