The disaster at Fukushima is a global disaster. It is amazing to me that the interest in this is so minimal. Possibly it is the nature of radiation because it is silent, and can't be seen, smelled, tasted, or felt when the exposure comes in the form of nuclear fallout.
I also have another idea that is based on the principle of normalcy bias. Normalcy bias is the mental state of people entering a disaster. It causes people to underestimate the possibility and the effects of a disaster. People with normalcy bias have difficulties reacting to something that is unfamiliar. They tend to interpret warnings in the most optimistic way possible. They will tend to infer a less serious situation from any ambiguities in warnings.
Due to the fact that the Fukushima disaster is not being reported with the mainstream media and a normalcy bias existing within the population, it seems that it is not on many peoples minds. There is limited research being conducted and our government does not seem to be concerned about the testing of food for contamination. There needs to be a public outcry.
Kimberly Roberson has written a book about her experience, as a mother, with Fukushima and the creation of the Fukushima Fallout Awareness Network. Her book ,Silence Deafening is a wake up call to action. I encourage everyone to read this book. It is a primer in some ways to how we must ultimately take responsibility for ourselves and be diligent concerning our food source. It is also a clarion call to take action at a global scale and again take responsibility. Indeed there has never been a change in the world that did not start within an individual first.
Another source of very valuable information and a MUST READ is the book Fukushima Meltdown & Modern Radiation: Protecting Ourselves and Our Future Generations, by John Apsley II, MD, ND,DC. This book is very impressive. Dr. Apsley describes in detail the disaster and what has occurred at Fukushima Daiichi power plant. He has given detailed information about the effects of radiation and in particular the Petkau effect and the Bystander effect. These describe much research about the long term effects of low dosage exposure to radiation. In the long term the effects are much more devastating than a short burst of higher dosage of radiation. Because the fallout is littered over the Northern Hemisphere, all food grown here is suspect. Radiation fallout is in our food supply.
Dr Apsley also has created a protocol called The Regeneration Effect, a system of food and nutritional supplements needed to detoxify and inspire the body to release radiation and return to a healthy state. His protocols are easy to follow and very detailed. I especially like that he has detailed his protocols for body weight, from infants to large adults. This book is a detailed way to support the body in releasing the effects of radiation and to regenerate after radiation damage. Dr Apsley includes end notes with references to every article supporting his work. For every person concerned with maintaining their health and lessening the ill effects of radiation this book is the best guide I have found. It should belong in every practitioners library.
For one of the very best sources of information regarding the ongoing disaster in Fukushima check out www.fairewinds.org This is the site created and maintained by Arne Gunderson and his wife. Gunderson is a nuclear nuclear engineer and has worked his entire career in the nuclear industry. He has intimate knowledge of the regulatory commission and how nuclear power plants are constructed and work. He has been the leading source of information and has opened the door to the coverups that Tepco Power has kept regarding the severity and amount of nuclear material released into the environment from the ongoing meltdowns. He continues to work tirelessly to bring the reality of the situation to the public eye.
Another source of valuable information is from Dr Helen Caldicott. Dr Caldicot has been an anti-nuclear activist for over 40 years and knows intimately how radiation effects us. Read this article www.helencaldicott.com/2013/07/the-medical-implications-of-fukushima Dr Caldicott explains radiation and the effects on Japan and the rest of the world. She sums it up best at the end of the article,"We are seeing, and understanding, that all fallout becomes local."
My hope is sharing this information is that it will wake people up to the fallout that has already arrived from Fukushima. This radiation will not go away for many, many years. Humans are bio-accumulators. The food grown in North America has been contaminated by Fukushima fallout radiation. There is no way to avoid this. We must now become more vigilant and take a greater responsibility to protect ourselves. We must also realize the global implications of this disaster and nuclear energy and nuclear warfare. It is time we do something about this. The future health of this planet is in danger.
