Bulgaria: Record Radiation Level Detected in Underground Water at Fukushima NPP Photo by EPA/BGNES

Record high levels of radioactive substances have been detected in underground waters under the Japanese Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant (NPP).

The operator of the N-plant, Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco), as cited by ITAR-TASS and the Focus news agency, informed that the concentration of radioactive substances in water samples taken on Friday from a well on the territory of the second unit of the NPP exceeded 2,7 million Becquerel per liter against a norm of 150 Bq.

The authorities also detected strong beta radiation in the water indicating the presence of radioactive strontium-90.

Correction - 3rd place is France not GB.

Is it any wonder that the Planet Earth IS VERY SICK? Watching this video puts everything into perspective about how STUPID and DESTRUCTIVE mankind is. By far the worst offenders are USA, followed closely by Soviet Russia and in third place is Great Britain. Note that GB and France only test and contaminate other lands rather than in their own backyard. Also GB won't accept any responsibility for what they did in Maralinga.

All Nuclear PP's are an accident waiting to happen with irreversable and irrepairable consequences to the earth, atmosphere (holes in the ozone), all flora, fauna, people and every part of the environment. NPP's are not safe by any means, nor is the technology. We are told it is safe and lied to about all the mishaps and coverups. Whichever manufacturer has the "latest and best" Nuclear product is only in it for the super mega bucks and will tell you anything for a sale.

Look at all the billions that has been and is still being spent on "fixing" the Chernobyl site. The best they can do is to build a shed cover over it to contain the site. Look at Fukushima and the contamination that we all have to live with, it has become "the new Chernobyl". You cannot clean or fix these things. It is a worldwide problem with worldwide consequences. When will people wake up? Nuclear is DANGEROUS.

Obviously that CLEAN and ORGANIZED photo of the Fukushima power plant was taken BEFORE the not so recent disaster, how neat it looks. Little did they know that all the spent fuel was stored in the attic, so it could all go cooking up in steam when it collapsed.

No one can get close enough to take photos anymore, besides the film all comes out white.


Tokyo Electric lied about danger level at Fukushima- US Marine poisoned by radiation
16 January, 2014 Voice of Russia

False hopes based on the fact that Tokyo Electric misrepresented the whole Fukushima disaster saying that United States ship is safe which sadly gives United States ship this false sense of security that United States ship is in a safe operating zone.
United States ship effectively went through a radioactive plume that was released by Tokyo Electric.

United States Ship Marines are dealing with diseases such as tumors or testicular cancer or leukemia.
Radiation affects everybody differently based on their genetic makeup. Some people may never see a symptom; other people may see symptoms sooner. Some people may see symptoms 20 years later, just like in the Chernobyl disaster when folks developed cancer 20 years later.
