Nuclear facilities emit considerable amounts of tritium which makes the water radioactive. By cooling towers and other ways. This is the reason for rising children cancer rates near nuclear reactors:
Chance for children carcinogenic tritium emissions from each reactor every second: 100% – first two pages are from a 300 pages long german document (not for the public): http://www.life-upgrade.com/DATA/Tritium-DWK-LaHague-ChildrenCancer.pdf
La Hague emits 1000,000 Curie EACH YEAR! 1 Curie per km² = 37,000 Bequerel per m². AND: 20 Bequerel per Kg IN the body cause Heart Prolems and can lead to death: https://tekknorg.wordpress.com/2011/09/25/european-union-kills-legallly-150000-people-each-year-with-irradiated-food-in-germany/
Because reactors depend on heavy water as a moderator, they release larger amounts of tritium to the environment than light water reactors (…) Tritium is a carcinogen, mutagen, teratogen and developmental toxin. It becomes incorporated into DNA and disrupts the genetic code of men’s and women’s reproductive cells: http://www.iicph.org/files/IICPH-Final-Statement-re-Darlington-NNPP-May-17-20… – current Guideline and Drinking Water Quality Standard for tritium is 7,000 Bq/L, which is based on the permissible ICRP dose limit of 1 mSv/year (lowered to 0.1 mSv in water). This “standard” corresponds to a risk of 350 excess fatal cancers per million people from just one year’s consumption of drinking water, not a lifetime (70 years) 300 million people living in the US: 105,000 DEATHS PER YEAR x 30 years = 3,150,000 murdered people by the peaceful atom! Multiplied x global = weapons of mass destruction.
