Japan’s Radioactive Poison Now Float Into the United States

 An illustration of just how dangerous nuclear power is for every person on earth is the recent discovery that radiation from leaks in nuclear power plants in Japan has floated through air and rainwater into the United States.  While the largest amounts of radiation are in Richland and Boise, Idaho, trace particles of radiation have been detected in air, milk and drinking water across this country.

 According to Sandi Doughton of the Seattle Times, “The levels of iodine-131 in water samples from Richland and Boise — about 0.2 picocuries per liter — are so small the EPA estimates that even an infant would have to drink nearly 7,000 liters to receive a dose of radiation equivalent to a day’s worth of normal background radiation. Iodine-131 can be harmful in higher amounts, particularly to babies and young children, because it concentrates in the thyroid gland and can lead to cancer later in life.”

 But Jeff Patterson, DO, past president of Physicians for Social Responsibility says such estimates are ridiculous:  “There is no safe level of radionuclide exposure, whether from food, water or other sources.  Period.”  His colleague, Alan H. Lockwood, MD, adds:  “Consuming food containing radionuclides is particularly dangerous. If an individual ingests or inhales a radioactive particle, it continues to irradiate the body as long as it remains radioactive and stays in the body,”

 In his blog posts and News Streams, Jeff McMahon insists that Japan’s radiation has actually been found in drinking  water in 13 American cities––including Oak Ridge, Tenn.; Helena, Mont.; Columbia, Penn.; Cincinnati; Pittsburgh; East Liverpool and Painesville, Ohio; Denver; Detroit; Trenton and Waretown, N. J.; and Muscle Shoals, Ala.  And the poisonous substance has even been measured in milk samples in Montpelier, Vermont; Phoenix and Los Angeles. 

 McMahon writes that: “Radioactive isotopes accumulate in milk after they spread through the atmosphere, fall to earth in rain or dust, and settle on vegetation, where they are ingested by grazing cattle.”  He also says that radiation’s iodine-131 was found in air filters six additional cities:  Montgomery; Nome, Dutch Harbor and Juneau, AK;  and Las Vegas.  He adds that the EPA had omitted other cities where isotopes of cesium and tellurium were found:  Honolulu, Kauai and Oahu, Hawaii; Anaheim, Riverside, San Francisco and San Bernardino, CA; Jacksonville and Orlando, FL; Salt Lake City; and Guam, and Saipan.

 In short, radiation leaks from Japan now float over all parts of the United States.  An entry in Bible verse cards reads:  “. . . him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin” (James 4: 17b).  Leaders in this country and around the world know that nuclear power is dangerous for their citizens.  By insisting on its use, they flout the laws of God!  Rest assured!  They will pay for such sins!
