AUGUST 18th 2011, GERMANY:

WARNING: REWE sells them too! Labeles as “Weissrussland”

Discovered today: Chanterelles from Belarus – the most Chernobyl irradiated country in the World. Mushrooms / Chanterelles absorb radiation like a sponge absorbs water! DO NOT BUY THEM!

The European Union imports radioactive goods from areas with a maximum of 20 Milli Sievert per Year (official) AND MORE -  that’s an equivalent of 50 (!) mammograms! FOR CHILDREN. This is dangerous and irresponsible.

So far had a radioactivity of cesium-134 and cesium-137 have been allowed by a maximum of 600 becquerels per kilogram. Since last weekend the EU limit for food from affected areas in Japan, however, was significantly increased. Consumer organization FoodWatch (web) and the Environment Institute Munich announced in a joint statement, that: For example, should fish oil or spices to their previous value to twenty times higher than what corresponds to 12 500 becquerels per kilogram.

Cesium directly harms the hearts of our children: MODIFICATIONS IN CARDIAC-VASCULAR SYSTEM OF CHILDREN, LIVING IN CONTAMINATED WITH RADIOISOTOPES: http://chernobyl-today.org/images/stories/Bandajevski_2001_Radiocaesium_and_heart.pdf

500 Bequerel per Kilogram – japanese limit IS MURDER. Why: we can rightly consider the Cesium-137 in relatively small doses (20-30 Bq/kg); a breach of the regulatory processes in the body: PAGE 2 – 3: http://chernobyl-today.org/images/stories/BANDAJEVSKI_UNSCEAR_-_REUTERS_Sept_22nd_2010_Eng_V2.pdf

The appropriate Emergency Ordinance 297/2011 was on entered into force on March 27th 2011. Safety standards for Japanese food have been decreased. German Federal Minister of Consumer Aigner contains important information to the public. This is an act against the health of the people. This is not democratic. Then, the E.U. TOOK IT partly BACK: http://www.foodwatch.de/kampagnen__themen/radioaktivitaet/nachrichten/kommissionsentscheidung/index_ger.html
reason: Massive protest of consumer organisations! JAPAN, you can do it also!

There are NO safe radiation limits according to the former ICRP (International Commission on Radiological Protection) chairman “K.Z. Morgan”: http://books.google.de/books?id=aAoAAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA30&lpg=PA30#v=onepage&q&f=false

There are NO safe radiation limits according to the General Secretary of the World Health Organisation “Margaret Chan”: https://tekknorg.wordpress.com/2011/05/12/w-h-o-secretary-general-chan-admits-for-the-first-time-in-52-years-radiation-is-always-dangerous/ For german readers: http://www.taz.de/!70237/ and: http://www.woz.ch/artikel/2011/nr15/international/20607.html

BELARUSIAN RADIATION MAP:

How belarusian people live there with radiation, they do NOT MEASURE their food, it’s not practicable and only a paper tiger:

I will not tolerate this. I have informed consumer organisation FOODWATCH (web) on that matter. More news soon!

It’s not 23 years after Chernobyl,

It’s “23 Chernobyl years.”

3aa32ea241adcb28d195b715213

Chernobyl is continuing to harm people and environment (scientific proven by Dr. Gennadi Milinevsky, Kiev, Anders Pape Moller CNRS and Prof. Timothy A. Mousseau, South Carolina ):

US Chernobyl Research Initiative: Consequences for People, insects and birds

Chernobyl was the explosion of a former russian atomic reactor in 1986.

72 % of it’s fallout went down on Belarus – the most Chernobyl affected country in the world. More than 2 million people are still living there in contaminated areas. Here are Belarusian Radiation maps

More: Belarusian independent Chernobyl information

The Government has build an own city around the main capital Minsk, it is called “Malinowka” – it’s like a circle around Minsk. Only for Chernobyl evacuees. The IAEA gags the WHO not to publish any other numbers about death or illness caused by Chernobyl. It’s because of a gag contract between the IAEA and the WHO – since 1959:

Learn about this global scandal here: Independent WHO

That’s why both say only 30 – 50 people died of Chernobyl and 5000 could die. Sources like the IPPNW (web) or the Ukrainian health minstry say: 125,000 people have died (1993) and 800,000 (according to German Federal Working Agency Chernobyl) are affected by Chernobyl. The IAEA denies every other cancer caused by radiation except thyroid cancer. This is because the IAEA is a profiteer of atomic energy: Read more about it here – IAEA and ICRP and ICRP and ALARA

Chernobyl kills invisible and continues. Chernobyl shows that atomic energy is not peaceful. Chernobyl exploded with a yield of 0,2 – 0,3 kilotons. There are atomic weapons which have a lower yield. Source: Robert Green (former British navy member) and Prof. Robert Hesketh (former physicist and atomic operant – CEGB) & Don Arnott – Hinkley Point Hearing 1988 – mentioned in the IPPNW book “Tschernobyl 1996″.

The Belarusian Government denies Chernobyl: 1000 villages struck off from being contaminated

This is also international supported via CORE Program – or “How to end Chernobyl”

The Belarusian Government denies every link between illness and Chernobyl – medics can lose their jobs if they make a connection. Next to Radio Belarus in Minsk is a house where the state records thyroid illnes among belarusian people. Here are photos from April 2009:

And near this house I’ve spotted a white bus. It was from the “Chernobyl Children’s Project International” – view their great website here and watch their interesting and well made movies. Regards to Mrs. Ryan.

Olga, a young journalist from Kiev, remembers her childhood as a wonderful time: she used to live in Pripyat, a young town, full of children, mushrooms and flowers. The only problem: Pripyat is located next to the reactor of Chernobyl. At the age of eight years Olga was evacuated with her family. 22 years later she returns with her Brazilian husband to the place of her childhood, which is now a ghost town. A film about the loss of home, the second generation after Chernobyl and the question if it is still dangerous to eat daisies?

Yesterday (April 17th) I returned from a trip to Belarus. Organized by the German Civil Initiative for a World without an Atomic Threat (based in Rottweil) and the Belarusian Fond for the Children of Chernobyl (based in Minsk). We were a group of 11 people (age range from 18 – 54), students, special need carers, translators and teachers.

The program consisted of:

A stay at the City of Brest (historical memorial), the Technician University of Brest and a meeting with Prof. Severianin who has 200 patents and showed us various pioneer projects of thermal and solar energy, and also a 2 kw/h wind energy installment. After that we went to Luninetz (a Caesium 137 contaminated region due to the reactor explosion in 1986 / Chernobyl), where we visited the school, a club for disabled children, the White Lake and many many friends.

After 2 days we went to Minsk, there we met Chernobyl survivors, a doctor who was at the site of reactor No. IV / Chernobyl, in 1986. We stayed at the National Library (even on the roof), and the IBB supported history building about the Jewish Ghetto in Minsk. In the evening we were at the re-opening of the Minsk opera. The Moscow ensemble was there with Swan Lake, the Belarusian culture minister, the Belarusian foreign minister and the Russian Culture Minister. It was an unbelievable atmosphere, so tense, so magic.

Here are the first photos, from Brest, Luninetz, Minsk, ranging from April 10th to April 17th:

Germany, federal State “Niedersachsen”, radioactive waste disposal Asse II, Sept. 4th 2008. Source

130,000 barrels of middle and low radiative waste, kilograms of Plutonium and Caesium 147 – 750 meters below.  Asse 2 was and is the world’s first underground disposal for radioactive waste. And then this scandal:

Long lasting leak in Asse II

Now, Germany’s environmental minister Sigmar Gabriel takes over the Asse II disposal – the federal environmental agency “Bundesumweltministerium” is now responsible for Asse II. The new operator is the federal agency for radiation protection Germany – web - known from their KiKK study.

The former operators State Office for mining, energy and geology in the German federal state Niedersachsen (Landesamt für Bergbau, Energie und Geologie / LBEG) – HERE is their website and the “Helmholtz Zentrum München” / Munich – HERE is their website failed to operate the disposal properly.

Both did not react on their website.

Asse II is full of holes, as Gabriel said. He added, the cause of fault is not clear.

Let this be a learning experience for all pro atomic power activists.

From: Prof. Ludmilla Kryshanovska, Institute for Social and Forensic Psychiatry, Kiev – Ukraine. About: Psychiatric disorders on Survivors of Chernobyl.

Chernobyl is 65 miles away from Kiev, the main capital of Ukraine. The atomic reactor explosion in 1986 has big political, social and personal consequences. Many people still suffer from it. The people don’t believe in the authorities anymore. The task of decontamination of the 30 kilometer zone was committed to 800,000 workers (liquidators). All from former parts of the Soviet Union, which later decayed. Most of them were exposed to radiation at an average of two months, often without the right safety equipment. Most of them didn’t know the truth about the radiation level. So it wasn’t too much stress for them to work there.

According to the Ukranian Health ministery in 1993 more than half of the Ukrainian national territory was affected by Chernobyl. About 2,8 million people still live in contaminated areas. Between 1990 and 1993 official statistics show that only 28 – 32 percent of the mature population and 27 – 30 percent of the children were healthful. The number of healthy people has decreased. There is a strong tendency in the direction of chronically, not specific in the population: Gastro-intestinal disease, disease of the airways, the heart, cancer (Memo wordpress.tekknorg: Denied by the IAEA). One of the tragic consequences is the increase of childrens thyroid cancer (Memo wordpress.tekknorg: thyroid cancer is the only approved by the IAEA as a disease caused by Chernobyl - because inside of the IAEA physicists decide, not medics).

In 1993, a book called “Chernobyl: What can we learn from it” was released in the U.S. In this book you can read details about acute radiation syndroms, about thyroid disorders and about psychological problems of the liquidators. When the radiaiton level reaches 40 – 50 Rem (1 Rem = 0,01 Sv) it can cause all kinds of mental disorders. The classification of these disorders is debatable and a topic of debates with psychiatrists, neurologists and psychologists.

In 1991 all date was kept secret. The patients were sent to special hospitals. The official diagnosis was “Vegetative Dystonia”. This was a vague defintion, which included a big bandwith of disorders. Not all medics affirmed that. After 1991few articles were made public and material about mental disorder of liquidators. There were three opintions:

#1 – Most of these disorders were functional: Vegetative Dystonia, neurotic disorders, post-traumatic stress symptoms, radiophobia (Memo wordpress.tekknorg: Official statement of the IAEA and the WHO – WHO is gagged by a contract with the IAEA), despair and psychosomatic disorders.

#2 – Patients suffer from brain disorders.

#3 – Some patients suffer of post-traumatic disorders caused by stress, and pseudo-neurotic syndroms and psychosomatic disorders, somatisation disorders, hypochondria, disorders caused by fear, and various depressive syndroms and organic mental disorders.

Till today there are no clear categories for the diagnose of these disorders. It depends on the neurological or psychological school you’re with.

In 1990, the Ukrainian Institute for Social and Forensic Psychiatry began to study the consequnces of Chernobyl on people, who had taken part on the liquidation of Chernobyl. 380 liquidators were examined, clinical and psychologic. The examination began four years after the catastrophe. All patients were treated in a special hospital, which opened it’s doors after the catastrophe of Chernobyl. Most of the patients were transfered by the medics to our psychiatric examinations, because of psychologic or psychiatrical problems. The aim of the study was to determine the clincal and psychologic aspects of not-psychotic mental disorders with the link to the catastrophe of Chernobyl.

A special questionary and psychologic tests were developed, to get the data. We asked high level radiated patients, when the first symptoms appeared. The exposed doese depends on the time when they started working as a liquidator in the Zone and on the duration of the work. 55 percent of our patients showed first symptoms at the end of 1986. Not until 18 months later, sometimes 2 years later, the symptoms developed to a full picture. (Memo wordpress.tekknorg: This shows the complexity of radiation disease: It’s invisible and takes a long time. This is the reaseon why IAEA and even normal people mistake it with diseases caused by other things such as poverty).

At this time the age of our patients was 30 – 45 years. Most of them had similar problems: Headache, fits of dizziness, chronic fatigue, concentration problems, mindful problems, memory loss, testiness, sometimes fury, moodiness, anxiety states, exhaustion after mental and pysical work, high clood pressure, dysregulation of breathing, feelings of desperation and trashiness and loss of the libido. They also showes a sensitivity against lout noises, bright light and high temperatures.

In short, it was described as “Cerebrasthetic Post-Chernobyl Syndrom”

As long as atomic reactors exist, Atomic bombs will be a reality.

 

So, watch these countries, people and concers closely:

France wants new atomic reactors

Toshiba wants to build new atomic reactors

IEA wants 1,300 new atomic reactors

McCain wants to build new atomic reactors

Atomic power is NOT green
