WHO Knows the Fukishima Radiation Impact
January 27, 2013 in Health
The World Health Organization, the WHO, knows the health hazard of the Fukishima radiological disaster but is buried in their bureaucratic website which occasionally surfaces in other public places. It is a little late, but better late than never. As I was meandering thought the myriad of current regulatory proposals underway for food control I discovered attachments concerning the radiological impact of Fukishima that did make it out to the public with clarity.
In September 2011 the WHO asked, and answered the question many of us have verbally or secretly wondered, “Is there a risk of radioactive exposure from food contamination?”
The WHO answered that question saying, “Yes, there is a risk of exposure as a result of contamination in food.”
“However, contaminated food would have to be consumed over prolonged periods to represent a risk to human health,” they said further. The problem is that radiation is bio-cumulative, and since we must all continue to eat to survive, that means prolonged radiation exposure, resulting in a risk to our health.
“The radioactive iodine and caesium in concentrations above the Japanese regulatory limits have been detected in some food commodities as a result of food monitoring”. As a farmer and concerned citizen I have been actively engaged in watching international and agricultural reports on radiological contamination or product recalls. To date I have seen none. There are in fact, significant county, state, agency, and federal plans to deal with the fallout in our food supply from nuclear events and yet that protocol was not activated. We have not witnessed any public notifications about radiation contamination or recalls. Global trade continues with Japan and radiation contamination is not mentioned in the United States with exception or vague reports buried in proposed USDA, FDA, and HHS regulations..
“Japanese authorities have advised residents to avoid these food and have implemented measures to prevent their sale and distribution.” In the US however, Americans are kept in the dark about the glow of radioactive food supply . Given the corrupt nature of government why haven’t these products been exposed as contaminated?
What assurance do any of us really have that the products we eat are free of radiation? Unless you own your own radiation meter your chances of knowing what are safe products to eat is slim. Unfortunately most of the public will be lied to and deceived until it is to late.
In adherence to its Constitution and the International Health Regulations, risk assessment on the radiological impact to health last summer but it was not released, or if it was it is not on the Internet. What is known is that embedded within current proposed US regulations put into the Federal Register on January 16, 2013 are many, many references to Chernobyl. Are the statistical manipulators going to attempt to hide the health impacts of Fukishima under the umbrella of Chernobyl?
Cleverly, the WHO says that you will not encounter more radiation than you would in your everyday environment. Think about that statement. They are not outright saying you will not be exposed to radiation but that you will encounter it in your everyday environment. It is plausible deniablity.
One positive note is that there are natural preventative measures a person can and should engage in to protect oneself, as best as possible, as the radiation levels increase around the world.
Food for thought…..
