Rysk forskare anser att Fukushima är värre än Tjernobyl

Från och med 30 april 2011 kan nästan alla medicinska örter att vara olagliga inom den europeiska unionen om nya lagförslag accepteras i Bryssel. I deras strävan att slå undan all konkurrens och ta absolut kontroll över människors hälsa har läkemedelsindustrin och jordbruksnäringen vunnit ett viktigt slag i Europa. Det hemliga vapnet som läkemedelsindustrier använder är handelslagar.

Forskningsencyklopedin ”Vetenskap och forskning” är uppdaterad med aktuella länkar till forskning listad av Libertonline.com.

Syftet med Vetenskap och Forskning är:

  • att lista referenser på forskning, inom framförallt hälsa och medicin, som bedöms vara oberoende av industrins ekonomiska intressen.
  • att för den allmänna debatten visa att det finns forskning och vetenskapliga bevis för alternativa synsätt och metoder.
  • att åter etablera de ursprungliga definitionerna av orden ”vetenskap”, ”forskning” och ”den vetenskapliga metoden”.

Japan uppgraderar kärnkraftsolyckan i Fukushima till en sjua, den högsta nivån på den internationella skalan, bekräftade landets säkerhetsmyndighet på tisdagen, skriver SvD. Den 14 mars skrev TS News att Fukushima var lika allvarlig som Tjernobylolyckan 1986. Uppgifterna kom från den svenske kärnkraftexperten Frigyes Reisch.

fukushima chernobylDet japanska kärnkraftbolaget Tepco bedömde då att haveriet var en fyra på den sjugradiga skalan. Frigyes Reischs respons den 14 mars var istället:

They have economic interests. This is a seven. During my years at SKI, I would not have talked, but now I’m retired and can speak freely.

This is absolutely comparable with Chernobyl. It’s about the impact on a large area with many people and local release of radioactive material that is likely to be the case of lethal doses”.

There is tremendous commercial interest in this. The entire world’s nuclear industry is Japanese.

As an example, he mention the second global nuclear power giant, General Electric Hitachi Nuclear Energy, has Japanese majority ownership. Given all the rescue workers who worked closely with the affected units and inhaled radioactive steam, it´s in reality impossible to not die of radiation. It’s not good.

I do not know how many people who live north of Fukushima, but I guess it is so densely populated that there are a few million,” said Frigyes Reisch.

På tisdagsmorgonen 12 mars lokal tid utbröt en brand intill reaktor fyra i kärnkraftsverket. Japan skakades av ännu ett kraftigt jordskalv med magnituden 6,3 på morgonen 12 mars och på torsdagen den 7 mars hade Japan en jordbävning på 7,4.

Alexej Yablokov: Fukushima kan överträffa Tjernobyl

Alexey Yablokov

Dr. Alexey Yablokov, medförfattare till boken “Chernobyl:Consequences of the Catastrophe for People and the Environment,” och medlem i  ”Russian Academy of Sciences” sa den 25 mars 2011:

“We are seeing something that has never happened – a multiple reactor catastrophe including one using plutonium fuel as well as spent fuel pool accidents, all happening within 200 kilometers of a metropolis of 30 million people. Because the area is far more densely populated than around Chernobyl, the human toll could eventually be far worse in Japan.”

”When you hear [authorities say] ‘no immediate danger’ then you should run away as far and as fast as you can.”

Dr. Yablokov har kalkylerat att så många som en miljon människor dog i Tjernobylolyckan. Dödstalet är betydligt högre än de officiella siffrorna. Yablokov säger att hans bok togs emot med tystnad  av WHO, som konsekvent undvikit diskussioner. Uppgifterna kommer från Commondreams.org.

Med andra ord kan vi förvänta oss kommande och upprepade försök från kärnkraftindustrin att dölja Fukushimas skada på människor och miljö (artikelförfattarens kommentar).

Michio Kaku: Fukushima måste göras om till betongsarkofag

Gadaffi rockvideo med Santana

Michio Kaku som är en amerikansk teoretisk fysiker hävdar att ansvariga för Fukushima använder en helt hopplös metod för att förhindra en härdsmälta. Det är som att försöka stoppa en skogsbrand med vattenpistoler. De måste göra något mycket mer drastiskt, säger Michio Kaku. Det är dessutom självmord att bomba reaktorerna med vatten från helikoptrar på låg höjd på grund av den dödliga strålningen.

Text: Torbjörn Sassersson

Nära 700 ton använt kärnbränsle lagras i de sex reaktorerna i Fukushima och personal vid Fukushimas kärnkraftanläggningen använder vattenbesprutning för att stävja förstadiet till en fullt utvecklad härdsmälta i minst tre reaktorer och sannolikt även i en fjärde reaktor som just nu brinner.

Michio Kaku menar istället att ansvariga snabbt måste ta samma beslut som Gorbatjov vid Chernobyl-olyckan 1986, att kalla in flygvapnet och med helikoptrar gjuta in hela reaktorkomplexet med en blandning av betong, sand och borsyra. Fukushima måste omedelbart byggas om till en sarkofag.

Fukushima nuclear disaster as bad as Chernobyl according to Nuclear expert

In theaters: April 22nd, 2011

Synopsis
Officially, Apollo 17, launched December 17th, 1972, was the last manned mission to the moon. But a year later, in December of 1973, two American astronauts were sent on a secret mission to the moon funded by the US Department of Defense. What you are about to see is the actual footage which the astronauts captured on that mission. While NASA denies its authenticity, others say it’s the real reason we’ve never gone back to the moon.

Genre: Horror, Science Fiction, Thriller

Director: Gonzalo López-Gallego
Writers: Brian Miller (screenplay), Cory Goodman

Muammar Gaddafi himself ordered the Lockerbie bombing. It was revealed by Libya’s minister of justice, Mustafa Mohamed Abud Al Jeleil, in an exclusive interview by the Swedish newspaper Expressen. ”I have evidence that Gaddafi ordered the Lockerbie”, said Mustafa Mohamed Abud Al Jeleil to Expressen.se.

270 people died December 21, 1988 when Pan Am Flight 103 exploded in the air with 259 people aboard, including the Swedish UN diplomat, Bernt Carlsson. The death toll amounted to 270 since 11 people on the ground were killed. A massive police investigation which include Scotland Yard and the FBI concluded that a bomb was placed on the airplane by two Libyan nationals on behalf of the Libyan secret service. ? Express reveal that the order came directly from Muammar Gaddafi.

On Wednesday Kassem Hamade interviewed Libya’s renegade Justice Minister, Mustafa Mohamed Abud Al Jeleil. ?Kassem Hamade met Mustafa Mohamed Abud Al Jeleil in the local parliament in a major city.

In 1992 the United Nations targeted economic sanctions against Libya because Gadafi did not cooperate to catch the perpetrators. ?Not until April 1999 the two alleged perpetrators went to trial in the Netherlands. ?One of the two Libyans, Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi, was sentenced to life in imprisonment.

Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi was released in 2009 on humanitarian grounds because he was suffering from prostate cancer. Gaddafi must have worked hard for Megrahi’s release.
– He did everything in his power to get Megrahi back from Scotland, says Mustafa Mohamed Abud Al Jeleil to Expressen.se. ?Mustafa Mohamed Abud Al Jeleil Notes: ? – He (Gaddafi) gave orders to Megrahi to do it. ? Earlier this week, reported the British newspaper The Sun that Megrahi is still alive, but that his health is deteriorating.

placebo better than drugs

A new study in ”Science Translational Medicine” has cast doubt over the scientific validity of nearly all randomized, double-blind placebo controlled studies involving pharmaceuticals used on human beings. It turns out that many pharmaceuticals only work because people expect them to, not because they have any ”real” chemical effect on the body. As you’ll see here, when test subjects were told that they were not receiving painkiller medications — even though they were — the medication proved to be completely worthless.

Source: Tuesday, February 22, 2011, by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, Editor of NaturalNews.com

This particular experiment involved applying heat to the legs of test subjects in order to cause pain, then adding a painkiller medication to an IV drip while assessing the subjects’ pain levels. When the painkiller drug was present, the test subjects were told about it, and just as expected their pain scores significantly dropped. But when test subjects were told the pain medication had been stopped, their pain levels returned back to the original, non-medicated levels even though the pain medication was secretly still being dripped into their IVs.

The mind of the patient, in other words, is what actually determines the ”effectiveness” of the pain drug, not the chemical effect of the drug itself.

Talking to the BBC, Professor Irene Tracey from Oxford University said, ”It’s phenomenal, it’s really cool. It’s one of the best analgesics we have and the brain’s influence can either vastly increase its effect, or completely remove it.”

As pointed out by George Lewith, a professor of health researcha t the University of Southampton, these findings call into question the scientific validity of many randomized clinical trials. He said, ”It completely blows cold randomized clinical trials, which don’t take into account expectation.”

NASA and the ESA agree, and so does the Russian space agency, Roscosmos—the sun is headed for a Grand Solar Minimum and a Grand Cooling will commence.

Source: Helium.com February 18, 2011

The aptly named Grand Cooling is exactly what it implies: the sun is going to cool. That cooling will also cool off the Earth. It will last from 30 to 50 years.

What exactly does global cooling mean? Well for one, Al Gore was sure wrong! The Earth isn’t going to warm, it’s going to get colder. Much colder. So cold a little or full-blown Ice Age will ensue. As a matter of fact, some scientists claim we’re already in the early stages of an Ice Age.

Dutch Professor Cees de Jager, a prominent astronomer and solar expert, forcefully asserts that we the world is indeed entering for a long period of very low solar activity. The professor and his colleagues are certain Earth is heading for a ”long Grand Minimum”—defined as either a Solar Wolf-Gleissberg or a Maunder Minimum—”not shorter than a century.” His 2010 paper, ”The forthcoming Grand Minimum of solar activity,” outlined the extended period of time that the diminished solar radiation would affect the Earth.

Floating Sauna

People living in Scandinavia already know it – sauna therapy is a wonderful way to reduce anxiety and stress, detoxfication of the body, while promoting relaxation, contentment and peace of mind. However, saunas and steam-baths are much more than just leisure products. Other health benefits of using sauna include muscle relaxation, detoxification and glowing healthy skin.

Text by James Schreiber, www.ecandida.com (source Natural News)
Photo: floatingsauna.blogspot.com

The tradition of sauna stems from the centuries old ritual of cleansing the body and the soul. Routines vary, but the basic idea is simple: sitting in the hot room, which is typically warmed to 82+ degrees Celcius. After 10-20 minutes – just when the heat becomes uncomfortable – it is customary to jump into a lake or swimming pool or to take a shower. After a short rest one goes back to the hot room and begins the cycle again, according to their personal preference.

Sauna and its health benefits

Sauna works on the principle of generating abundant sweat to detoxify the body and relax the mind. Regular sauna use can bring a number of health advantages – some of them are listed below:

  • Glowing healthy skin – blood flow to the skin increases during a sauna session. With more essential nutrients being available to subcutaneous and surface tissue, the quality of the skin gradually improves.
  • Detoxification – the heat releases poisons and heavy metals beneath the skin so that they can be purged through respiration. In this day and age most people are exposed to toxins every day. Toxic chemicals are abundantly present in our food and environment, so it seems reasonable to aid the detoxification process with the regular use of sauna.
  • Hyperthermia – exposure to the high heat creates an artificial fever state. Fever stimulates the body’s natural healing process. As a result, your immune system will produce greater numbers of disease fighting white blood cells and antibodies to eliminate viruses and other pathogens.
  • Furthermore, sauna therapy relaxes muscles and inhibits sympathetic nervous activity. Regular sauna users say that a ”good sweat” provides and opportunity to indulge in positive thoughts and escape from everyday troubles.

With that said, there are several safety precautions that you should always follow:

  • Do not stay in the hot room for more than 30 minutes
  • Allow adequate time for rest after leaving the sauna
  • Drink sufficient amount of water to replenish lost fluids and minerals
  • Be sure to remove contact lenses before entering sauna
  • Drinking alcohol in the sauna is not recommended
  • Pregnant women should avoid sauna and steam-baths altogether

If you are in reasonable health, the benefits of sauna and steam-baths far outweigh any hazards. Follow the aforementioned guidelines and include sauna as part of your lifestyle. You’ll experience a level of renewal that is hard to surpass.

Vaccine report reveals lies about vaccines

The International Medical Council on Vaccination has released, exclusively through NaturalNews.com, a groundbreaking document containing the signatures of over 80 family physicians, brain surgeons and professors of pathology, chemistry and immunity, all of which have signed on to a document stating, on the record, that vaccines pose a significant risk of harm to the health of children and that there is no real science backing the ”vaccine mythology” which claims that vaccines are somehow good for children.

Text: Mike Adams

This groundbreaking document, called Vaccines: Get the Full Story, is available as a free download from NaturalNews.com. Click the report cover image on the right to go directly to the download page, where you’ll find downloads available in 9 languages, including Spanish, French, Hebrew and Russian.

You have permission to share this report. Please also share the download page with others so that moms and parents can get educated about the risks associated with vaccines and thereby protect their children from the risk of harm caused by vaccines.

The vaccine industry’s message is like a broken record: Vaccines are ”safe and effective,” they say. But repeating a lie over and over again does not magically make it true. Any such declaration of vaccine safety or effectiveness must be based on actual scientific inquiry, and the real science is utterly lacking on vaccines. Did you know, for example, that MMR and seasonal flu vaccines have never been clinically tested against non-vaccinated individuals?

Did you also know that even though vaccines can cause long-term damage in children, with symptoms appearing months or even years later, they are typically only assessed for side effects for two or three weeks?

What you’ll find in this free downloadable report

  • A list of the many MDs, PhDs, NDs and other medical professionals who are signing onto this document and taking a stand to critically question the myth that vaccines are proven to be both safe and effective.
  • Why vaccines have NEVER been proven safe or effective.
  • A list of some of the serious health side effects caused by vaccines.
  • Why autism is associated with vaccines.
  • The profit motivation behind the pharmaceutical industry’s persistent vaccine push.
  • A list of which institutions and organizations profit from your sickness.
  • The shocking truth about what’s used to make vaccines (aborted fetal tissue, 59 different chemicals, DNA from diseased animals and more).
  • An overview of some of the most dangerous vaccine ingredients, including aluminum and formaldehyde.
  • The truth about conflicts of interest in the vaccine community and why doctors profit from vaccination policies.
  • Why vaccinated children have far worse health outcomes than unvaccinated children (and why the vaccine industry refuses to test vaccines against the long-term health outcomes of unvaccinated children).
  • How to opt out of ”mandatory” vaccines.
  • Important advice for parents about how to protect the health of your children while saying NO to vaccines.
  • Online resources for learning more about the dangers of vaccines.
  • A list of recommended reading materials for further education.

NaturalNews is also featuring two interviews with two of the physicians who signed this report: Drs Sherri Tenpenny and Suzanne Humphries. Their interviews will be posted in their entirety here on NaturalNews this week. On Friday (if not earlier), we will also be featuring an on-camera interview with Dr Andrew Wakefield, who talks with us about the symptoms of autism, why vaccines are potentially so dangerous to children, and what parents can do to protect their children from vaccine dangers.

fukushima nuclear plant satellite

Frigyes Reisch is one of the leading experts on nuclear safety in the world. He worked for 27 years at the Swedish Nuclear Power Inspectorate, SKI. He has worked for the IAEA and with nuclear scientists on know how to judge nuclear incidents. Now he says – in an exclusive interview for Aftonbladet – the accident in Fukushima is as severe as Chernobyl. The release of radio activity is most likely in lethal doses.

Source: Aftonbladet 2011 March 14. Translation: Google Translate. Editor: Torbjorn Sassersson.

The Japanese authorities classifies the disaster as a four on the seven Ines-scale,  which means ”an accident without significant risk to the environment”. Reisch dismisses this as a cover-up:

– They have  economic interests. This is a seven. During my years at SKI, I would not have talked, but now I’m retired and can speak freely.

– This is absolutely comparable with Chernobyl. It’s about the impact on a large area with many people and local release of radioactive material that is likely to be the case of lethal doses,” he says, Aftonbladet reports.

Frigyes ReischINES scale is set by the International Atomic Energy Agency, IAEA, and based on how a nuclear accident may cause risks to human health and the environment. The scale is logaritmic, meaning every step of the scale is about ten times worse than the previous.

The most serious nuclear accident in the world – the one in Chernobyl in 1986 – was classified to a seven.
Since the earthquake and tsunami last Friday, four nuclear power plants in northeastern Japan reported damage. Most serious damage appear to be in the Fukushima Daiichi complex where a meltdown or ”partial meltdown” has been found in Unit 1 and 3.

”The accident should be classified
as the worst on the scale –
Fukushima is as serious as Chernobyl”

 

Frigyes Reisch, 78, is associate professor of nuclear safety at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH). Over 27 years, until 1997, he worked for the Nuclear Power Inspectorate, SKI. In 1993 he worked a year for the IAEA as an international educator in the INES scale, including in Russia and the Czech Republic. Frigyes Reisch believes that the Japanese authorities blinds the dangers of Fukushima to keep people quiet – but there is also a national scope:

– There is tremendous commercial interest in this. The entire world’s nuclear industry is Japanese.

As an example, he mention the second global nuclear power giant, General Electric Hitachi Nuclear Energy, has Japanese majority ownership.

– Given all the rescue workers who worked closely with the affected units and inhaled radioactive steam, it´s in reality impossible to not die of radiation. It’s not good. I do not know how many people who live north of Fukushima, but I guess it is so densely populated that there are a few million,” said Frigyes Reisch.

So far, winds have been westerly and blowing out the radioactivity of the Pacific Ocean. But according to forecasts, they will during the day today to turn around and start blowing north – with the chance of precipitation. How far the radioactive particles can be spread is due to local conditions. After the Chernobyl accident Gavle, 1000 km from Chernobyl, had most radioactive precipitation in Sweden.
