Fukushima Radiation in the USA – Really?
Just in case you were falling for the radiation scaremongering… you might have noticed that the mainstream media have not reported on this, and I can’t see how you could suggest it is a “conspiracy”. Reality… it’s a non-story, despite what you may read:
I figure if I looked in my garden I could find some mutated-looking plants. My years of fruit-picking (I grew up on an orchard) has me certain that odd-looking plants are not unusual. So, besides the pics of “mutated plants”, I haven’t seen any real evidence that Fukushima has affected anyone outside of the local zone.
Here’s a common sense look at the non-problem:
….in Iran, the natural radiation gives people a dose of up to 260mSv a year. They have been living there for thousands of years. No ill health effects have ever been seen.
A year after the Fukushima accident, radiation experts show that most members of the public in the affected zone received doses of less than 1mSv, which is trivial. The worst dose, to only two people, was not more than 23mSv.
The ensuing nuclear accident at Fukushima killed nobody. Lacking any casualties, the activists use the fear of radiation. [According to Wikipedia, as of September 2011, there were no deaths or serious injuries due to direct radiation exposures.]
