Targeted nutrition to protect the Children of Fukushima from the radiation

The cause of congenital anomaly and cancer in Fallujah Iraq is identified as Enriched Uranium from novel weapons systems deployed by the US

17.10.2011.    This extraordinary discovery of a new uranium weapon should serve as a wake-up call to the entire world. It is as if the military were at war with humanity, secretively winning their battles with what is effectively a kind of delayed-action radioactive poison gas.  They cannot keep denying that these radioactive weapons can discriminate in their effects between military
and non-military targets. Because of this, enormous numbers of innocent people have died and will die in the future. Countless parents will watch their children with horror and pity as for several generations children will continue to be born with congenital anomalies as result of the genetic heritable effects induced by this exposure to uranium dust.

The implications of this discovery are extremely serious.

  • First it means that  all the measurements made for Depleted Uranium DU on Gulf War 2 veterans  are now useless as indications of exposure to Uranium dust and must be
  • Second it shows that  Uranium is now being used routinely in anti-personnel weapons and no longer only in anti tank weapons.
  • Finally it means that  the focus of the NGOs on banning Depleted Uranium (DU) is misplaced and  such a ban pointless since DU has not been deployed for a long time as the  military rightly (and with some concealed amusement) say.

The local civilian effects and global civilian exposures to this material represents a human rights issue of the greatest magnitude.

Uranium and other contaminants in hair from the parents of children with congenital anomalies in Fallujah, Iraq

Study by Samira Alaani, Muhammed Tafash, Christopher Busby, Malak Hamdan , Eleonore Blaurock-Busch Fallujah Hair study

Study analysed hair samples to examine contamination of the parents of children with congenital anomalies in Fallujah, a city where there was a very major and concentrated use of novel weapons in 2004. The purpose of our study was to identify the cause of the increased risks with some elemental component of the weaponry that was deployed. We conclude that the Fallujah parents of children with congenital malformations show unusually high levels of contamination by a number of chemical elements. These include Lead, Iron, Aluminium, Manganese, Strontium, Barium, Bismuth and Mercury. There are also high levels of contamination with elements that are derived from destroyed concrete and masonry, namely Calcium and Magnesium. However, none of these elements could account for the levels and types of ill health in the population, the cancer and congenital anomaly rates. In addition to these elements we found significant levels of Uranium, a material which has been associated with weapons employed in Iraq and in the Balkans since 1991 and also with genotoxicity. These levels were significantly higher than those expected on the basis of published control group data from various studies and particularly from Southern Israel. Further, the pattern of contamination with regard to hair length indicated a major contamination event in the past. The levels of Uranium could not be explained by any local Uranium deposits in the soil since measurements made of soil Uranium showed only modest concentrations though the Uranium was slightly enriched. Levels in the hair were also greater than could be easily explained by the levels we measured in the drinking water. The hair samples appear to contain traces of slightly enriched Uranium with an isotopic ratio of 135.16 (SD 1.5). The soil samples contained slightly enriched Uranium with isotope ratios ranging from 118 to 132 (natural range 95% CI 132.1-144.1) which demonstrates the existence of enriched Uranium in the Fallujah environment. Since none of the other elements found in excess in the parents were genotoxic except Uranium we conclude that these results support the belief that the effects in Fallujah follow the deployment of a Uranium-based weapon or weapons of some unknown type.

VIDEO. Leuren Moret: quality of Israeli sperm down 40 % in 10 years

Lawrence Livermore whistle blower and atmospheric dust specialist Leuren Moret tells that the quality of Israeli sperm has declined alarmingly in the last decade, according to recent research conducted at Jerusalem’s Hadassah University Hospital, Mount Scopus. The cause for the decline is believed by some researchers to be connected to the exposure  to  Uranium weapons fallout last 20 years.

“Israel’s population is facing a dire threat: a drastic depopulation, from the use of weapons that leave behind Depleted Uranium (DU). Depleted Uranium leads to the word Omnicidal, as DU kills everything in the food chain, everywhere the wind blows. Experts say the dramatic drop in Israel’s sperm count could eliminate their ability to reproduce.” See (link error fr 15 jan 2011  on the original source )

“Conducted by Dr. Ronit Haimov-Kokhman, the study showed a 40-percent decline in the concentration of sperm cells among the country’s sperm donors from 2004 to 2008, compared to those of donors from 1995 to 1999. Hadassah’s sperm bank is now turning away two-thirds of potential donors because of low-quality sperm, as opposed to one-third in the past.”

Leuren Moret summarizes the latest news on America’s covert nuclear war waged with sea currents to deliver radiation to Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. Leuren recently attended the War Crimes tribunal in Malaysia as an expert witness and brings us up to date on developments there as wel.

Peripheral blood cells among community residents living near nuclear power plants

Yuan-Teh Lee, Fung C. Sung, Ruey S. Lin, Hsiu-Ching Hsu, Kuo-Liong Chien, Chi-Yu Yang and Wen Jone Chen

Department of Internal Medicine, National Taiwan University College of Medicine, Taiwan. November 2001.

“Information about hematopoieses as a result of exposure to very low levels of radiation is scarce. To investigate the human hematopoietic effect of very low level radiation exposure, measurements of peripheral blood components were performed among 3602 men and women, aged 35 and above, living in a community near two nuclear power installations in Chinshan, Taiwan. The radiation level that each individual was exposed to was represented by a surrogate level, ‘ ’, a transformed distance from each individual’s residence to the two power plants D1 and D2. In addition to comparing average hematology measurements, multiple regression analyses were done to include age, gender, smoking, drinking status and the surrogate radiation exposure level as independent variables. Univariate and bivariate analyses showed that the hematology measurements had significant associations with age, gender, smoking or drinking. The multiple regression analyses revealed that significant positive associations with ‘ ’ were found for hemoglobin, hematocrit, platelet, white blood cell and red blood cell. The platelet count might increase for 208.7×103/μl if the exposure from the nuclear plants increased by one exposure unit.

This type of association implies that those who lived closer to the nuclear power installation had a higher blood cell count; we suspect that this could be a type of radiation hormesis.”
