FRENCH NUCLEAR RESEARCH GROUP CRIIRAD ISSUES WARNING AGAINST CONSUMING SPECIFIC FOODS FOR ENTIRE COUNTRY OF FRANCE – All French citizens were warned against consuming rainwater, leafy greens, and all milk derived products (including from goats and sheep as well as cows) due to radioactive fallout contamination in Europe.  The U.S. and Canadian governments still claim that all of the above foods are safe in North America, even for infants and pregnant women; unfortunately the reality is that the level of radioactive fallout present here is 8 to 10 times greater that of France and the rest of Europe. – http://www.euractiv.com/en/health/radiation-risks-fukushima-longer-negligible-news-503947

FALLOUT MAPS FOR NORTH AMERICA
These maps, made available by the Norwegian Institute for Air Research (NILU), show which areas of North America have received or will soon receive the highest dumps of radioactive fallout from Fukushima.  The maps show during which time periods to expect incoming fallout in specific areas.  It is a tragedy and a scandal that the U.S. and Canadian governments do not provide such information to its citizens.  The link below will take you to a page where you can click on which radioactive fallout element to track over which area of the world.  Be aware that the amount of fallout already on the ground in North America  will continue to affect us for a long time to come, even if concentrations shown on this mapping (which shows current streams of new fallout from Fukushima) become less intense in the future.

EUROPEAN COMMITTEE ON RADIATION RISK (ECRR) FORECASTS OVER 400,000 CANCERS WILL EVENTUALLY DEVELOP FROM FUKUSHIMA FALLOUT – http://www.llrc.org

SCIENTIST MICHIO KAKU NOTES THAT FUKUSHIMA DISASTER MAY BE WORSE THAN CHERNOBYL – http://naturalnews.tv/v.asp?v=604AB3FA803FF3647DF6E34EC5E8C8A0

EPA IS PLANNING TO INCREASE OFFICIAL “SAFE” RADIATION LEVEL GUIDELINES BY FACTORS OF THOUSANDS OR MILLIONS IN THE NEAR FUTURE – This is a clear sign of how bad things are: to continue the illusion that the fallout crisis is not dangerous, the EPA is planning to increase dramatically the official guidelines for “safe levels” of radiation – even though their current guidelines are already unrealistically high and inaccurate for risks from radioactive contamination of air, food and water. – http://www.peer.org/news/news_id.php?row_id=1325

MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS IGNORING REPORTS OF RADIOACTIVE CESIUM FALLOUT TO FOCUS ON RADIOACTIVE IODINE – Since Radioactive Iodine has a short half-life of 8 days, whereas Cesium has a half life in some cases of 30 years, this is another tactic to obscure the long-term danger in North America. – http://www.naturalnews.com/031992_radioactive_cesium.html

RECOMMENDED SOURCES FOR INFORMATION UPDATES

Energy News Website (perhaps the most frequently updated information source in English on the internet for the Radiation crisis in North America):
http://enenews.com/

The non-profit Nuclear Information and Resource Service is an excellent and highly recommended source with regular updates:
http://www.nirs.org/fukushima/crisis.htm

The non-profit Low-Level Radiation Campaign website has a wealth of helpful  information, including good rebuttals to false media reports such as those stating that the Chernobyl accident was “not as bad as people think”:

NaturalNews website is another frequently updated source of information on the fallout crisis:

SPECIFIC FOODS AND GEOGRAPHIC AREAS OF CONCERN

Below is a summary of key areas and food products of highest concern.

We strongly recommend that you do energetic testing of foods from these areas before consuming them to see if they strengthen or weaken you, using

  • Vibrational Radiesthesia, or
  • Kinesiology, or
  • Pulse Diagnosis.

AREAS WHOSE FOOD PRODUCTS MAY NOW CARRY RADIOACTIVE FALLOUT

The Entirety of the Northern Hemisphere around the world is affected by fallout, as well as the Pacific Ocean.

Most Serious:  Japan, Pacific Ocean, and Pacific Rim States

Most Contaminated food areas of North America (based on fallout wind spread patterns charted by European scientific research agencies) in order of likely intensity of contamination, starting with the most contaminated:

  • Entire Pacific Coast (note that much of the produce in North America comes from this region, especially California)
  • Northern U.S. States close to Canada, and Canadian areas close to the U.S. (including Toronto etc.)
  • Eastern States
  • Central States of the U.S., and Far Northern areas of Canada

SAFEST AREAS OF ORIGIN FOR FOOD PRODUCTS

The majority of contamination is in the northern hemisphere and the Pacific Ocean region.  Most of the Southern Hemisphere has little to no fallout (the exception is the Southern Hemisphere in the Pacific; Australia for example is finding radioactive fish in the ocean, so although they may not get much atmospheric fallout they are affected by the massive contamination of the Pacific Ocean.)

Also note that radioactive contamination is being found on non-food products being imported from Japan.

Safest Areas of Origin for food products:
Central America (avoid items from the Pacific Coast area of Mexico)
South America
Africa

Europe is also far less contaminated that North America, although it is also experiencing significant fallout; so it is a better source for products than North America, however not as good as Southern Hemisphere sources.  (However some South American produce may contain high levels of pesticides not allowed to be used in the U.S. or Canada.)

ITEMS OF SPECIAL CONCERN FROM AFFECTED AREAS

Most affected:

All Ocean-Derived Products from the Pacific Ocean: the Fukushima accident dumped millions of times the normal background levels of radiation into the Pacific, where it is affecting the entire ocean (most toxic near Japan and bordering areas, but now reaching to the US West Coast: debris from the Tsunami in Japan is also expected to start washing up on the West Coast in the near future.)  There are already reports of Pacific Fish showing radioactive contamination.
This indicates a need to be cautious regarding:
All Pacific Ocean Fish
Sea Salt or Ocean Minerals derived from the Pacific
All Pacific Seaweed and Sea Vegetables (order Atlantic Ocean seaweed at www.theseaweedman.com )

Milk and all Dairy Products (butter, cheese etc.) from all animals: Cows, Goats, and Sheep (Dairy products have the most intense immediate absorption of radiation from fallout). Radioactive contamination of milk has been found throughout the United States, especially on the West Coast.

Any plant with a large surface area exposed to the air while growing:  The most intense radiation absorption in plants is through rain falling directly on the leaves  of the plant, where it is directly absorbed.  Rainwater absorbed through the earth into the plant is already of much lower radiation intensity due to the filtering affect of the soil.
All broad leaf plants and plants with large surface areas grown in the open air (rather than in greenhouses) are the most contaminated, for instance Salad Greens, Spinach, Cabbage etc.  Contaminated crops in California (carrying radioactive iodine and cesium) have already been confirmed by UC Berkeley.
[Carrots and other root vegetables are less contaminated due to growing underground.]

Water from Rainwater or Open Lake type catchments: instead drink bottled water, or water from underground wells or other underground sources (radiation is greatly reduced when the particles have to travel through the ground.)

PREGNANT (OR BREASTFEEDING) WOMEN AND YOUNG CHILDREN SHOULD ESPECIALLY BE CAREFUL REGARDING THESE ITEMS COMING FROM FALLOUT AFFECTED AREAS

INFORMATION ON RADIATION PROTECTIVE FOODS AND MATERIALS

A good overview of radiation protective food and antidotes are available in a free downloadable PDF here:
