Institute revises radiation exposure chart without explanation

July 24, 2013

By YURI OIWA/ Staff Writer

A key institute that studies the effects of radiation has revised its chart of doses and related health risks without offering an explanation, triggering confusion and criticism as a result of the disparity among government figures circulating among the public.

The National Institute of Radiological Sciences (NIRS) in Chiba posted the chart as a reference that listed exposure from natural radiation and that from radiation leaked by the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant and possible health risks on its website after the nuclear accident unfolded in March 2011.

In April 2012, the NIRS deleted a description saying that there were no increased cancer incidences with a radiation dose of 100 millisieverts or less.

Instead, the new chart said it has been found that the risk of dying from cancer gradually rises in accordance with an increase in radiation doses exceeding 100 millisieverts.


- With multiple melt-throughs on-going, broken fuel cells lying out in the open or partially covered in water in constantly depleted cooling tanks, and ''something'' boiling and emitting steam from somewhere, and the black soot that peppers Tokyo and everything north of it, and the broken reactors themselves constantly inundated with ground water that spews directly through all that poison and then back into the sea -- with a trickle being ''captured'' and put into tanks that will soon require high rise buildings for the only storage space left, is up -- Northern Japan and Southern Russia is slowly being poisoned directly. And so are all the rest of us, eventually.

So secretly raising the radiation numbers are the least of our worries.....

Only people of a ''certain age'' will understand this picture......

- Yep, good times.....

NTDChinaUncensored: ''Desperate Chinese Petitioner Blows Himself Up at Beijing Airport''

NTDChinaUncensored·Published on Jul 23, 2013

After years of his petitioning going unanswered, Ji Zhongxing blew himself up at the Beijing Capital International Airport to protest the attack by chengguan that left him paralyzed going uncompensated.

Chengguan are supposed to manage street vendors but usually act more like brutal police. There have been several instances of them killing their victims. Petitioners find their cries for help often unanswered or bringing only further suffering. Even though they have the right bring their grievances to Beijing and Zhongnanhai, local officials will do everything they can to keep them from getting there.

Toxic US weapons blamed for Iraq's birth-defect 'Hiroshima'

RussiaToday·Published on Jul 22, 2013

More than a decade after US led forces invaded Iraq - there is a legacy of horrific birth defects. Scientists blame the weapons used by the US military. Fallujah is the best known example, the number affected there is 14 times higher than in Hiroshima after an atomic bomb was dropped on it in the Second World War. But RT's Lucy Kafanov was the first to take an in-depth look at the lesser-known extent of the human suffering in Najaf. READ MORE: http://on.rt.com/qpgvh7

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the mass lobotomy that is the knitting needle of market manipulation to the brain; Ben Bernanke's Pepto Bismol talk as simulated fearlessness and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) like wearing thirty seat belts. In the second half, Max talks to Wolf Richter of TestosteronePit.com, about the turmoil in the Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) market and about private equity and hedge funds buying up properties only to take those properties off the 'for sale' list and put them on the 'to rent' list.
