Notice how there is NO news about radiation levels in the US? They even buried the news when the EPA RAISED so-called 'safe' radiation levels by a nearly 1000-fold increase for exposure to strontium-90, a 3000 to 100,000-fold hike for exposure to iodine-131; and an almost 25,000 rise for exposure to radioactive nickel-63” in drinking water (According to PEER (Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility). The Toxic Fallout cloud from the Fukishima disaster has already circled the Earth numerous times. Every precipitation event results in more radiation being dumped into the environment, and on US! As for there being 'safe' levels of radiation, this is a half-truth. Exposure to only Radiation itself is damaging, but the half-lives of some radioactive elements are short. However, some elements remain at dangerously high levels for many years, resulting in repeated exposure to radiation- if you haven't swept for and decontaminated the radioactive residue on your house, lawn and garden (and who HASN'T?). But what the authorities DON'T want you to know is that radiation exposure is CUMULATIVE. Every dose of exposure is not a separate incident, but an ADDITIONAL amount that increases your risk and possibility of cancer- now or many years down the road. Ignorance may be bliss, but ignorance of what radiation ACTUALLY is and how it affects you may be deadly!
