Germany, July 6th 2008 – the 7th European atomic scandal in just one month is here! This time it’s an issue for all German people, not only atomic power plant workers, engineers or scientists. The whole German people! Source
The German drinking water is much more contaminated with Uranium then assumed. The Consmer Protection Organisation “FOODWATCH” (web) discorvered, that of 8000 examined data 950 have more than 2 microgram of Uranium in one liter – that’s breaking the tolerance limit. A tolerance limit for Uranium? That’s right! There is such a thing. It’s unbelievable, but it exists. There should be only one tolerance limit: ZERO. Uranium in drinking water is dangerous for babies.
Adding to this: 150 data values are above the limit of 10 (!) microgram per liter. Is this still drinking water?
In France it would be, see the latest French atomic / Uranium scandals:
Uranium solution leaked out from French atomic power plant! – Operator: AREVA
Again! – Uranium leaked out from French atomic power plant! Operator: AREVA
100 French workers contaminated!
French atomic power plant: Worker contaminated with radiation – Again
Uranium can cause nerve damage, brain damage / Cancer, kidney damage and mutation. The IAEA would deny every link between radiation and death / mutation / cancer (excpent tyhroid cancer) or disease. They are doing this propaganda since they were founded, with the support of the ICRP – both are are profiteers of the atomic industry. So, no one wonders, why people accept tolerance limits all over the globe. It’s pro-atomic-power propaganda. Have a close look at tolerance limits, ICRP and IAEA – HERE .
They were originally founded in 1954. While their foundation was going on, an atmosphere of secrecy because of the atomic weapons and the secrecy of reasons of national safety were around them. 1954 ICRP was an organisation of 13 male members. Till 1990 the first woman came to them…
They made the recommendations for radiation protection norms, which were accepted by all countries, and which (very important!) justified the set of regulations of the IAEA. Interesting isn’t it? Here is one:
ICRP said, the tritium emission (from atomic power plants) in water should be 40.000 Bq. And now the crazy progress of the ICRP: In 1990 they said: Lets make 7000 Bq/ litre. This was proved by ACES (Comitee for environmental standards). They said: Wrong housenumber, change the 7000 (Because of cancer danger). They also said: Lower it to 100 Bq in five years until you get 20 Bq / Litre. I think its a big difference between 40.000 and 20, don’t you?
Thats why we should never tolerate a number for low radiation emission from atomic power plants.
But the IAEA uses them in a very cruel way, since the Chernobyl reactor explosion in 1986. If you read through a paper from 1990, written by the ICRP you find the description “temporary radiation effect”. Effects which they did not find heavy enough in order that the effected people can be compensated. And today? Have a look at his HERE
Worst of all: The German Authorities did not inform the German people about the Uranium in German drinking water – never did.
Only Foodwatch did it.
Now, their website is overrun by concerned people, so it will impossible to visi t their website for a while. You can try it if you want and you should do it, because German authorities still do NOT react. See here: BfS website
Foodwatch’s Chief Bode said, it would be no problem to filter the Uranium out of the drkinig water. But the authorities do not react. He also added, it would be a good idea to show the concentration of Uranium in driking water along with the water bill.
Funny and crazy thing: Germany has NO Uranium limits for drinking water. Nothing. Again: ZERO would be the limit.
Guess what, exactly at the same time, when Foodwatch uncovered the Uranium scandal in German drinking water, the CDU party (50% of Germany’s Government and pro-atomic-power) said, that German atomic power plants should run longer than the 8 years, to be exactly: 40 years. Who said this? Well, it was Glos (member of the German Bundestag Government), have a look at him HERE. And his message HERE. Is he paid by the industry or what? No, but other Government politicians: Listed HERE.
Germany plans total pull-out from atomic energy – no wonder some people are concerned. About the money, not the health of the German people. Here is the KiKK study about rising children cancer near German atomic power plants.
This year is a total catastrophe for pro atomic power extremism. Like every year, like every week.
