This is not good at all! This goes along with what i read the other day. I'm speechless!

"$400,000 in radiation fallout pills
In addition to the hollow point ammo and the bulletproof checkpoint booths, the U.S. government has also purchased $400,000 worth of potassium iodide pills -- the kind of pills you take to avoid damage to your thyroid in the wake of radioactive fallout.

This is being done, of course, in anticipation of yet more problems at Fukushima, where just one more explosion or earthquake could unleash a hellstorm of radioactive pollution affecting virtually the entire planet. http://www.infowars.com/army-stockpiles-anti-radiation-pills-to-protect-against-fukushima-fallout/

Isn't it interesting that the U.S. government is purchasing massive quantities of radiation protection pills, but when the Fukushima disaster struck in 2011, President Obama urged the American people to "do nothing" and assured them that they did not need to buy potassium iodide pills?

So here we have yet another case where the U.S. government is getting prepared while urging American citizens to AVOID getting prepared!"

Update as of 24 April 2012.

Efforts to Restart Oi Reactors

A senior METI official, Seishu Makino, traveled to Kyoto and Shiga Prefectures this week in an effort to convince the governors there to approve the restart of reactors #3 and #4 at the Oi nuclear power plant. However, his efforts to do so were not successful. Shiga Governor Yukiko Kada complained, “Should a nuclear accident occur, damage would spread through the Kinki region [which includes Shiga Prefecture]...We have doubts regarding the transparency of information.” Kada was referring to the government’s recent assertions that the country will experience power shortages if the reactors are not restarted. Officials from both Shiga and Kyoto Prefectures have questioned the validity of those claims and are asking for a third-party panel to assess power needs for the summer months. Kada added that Makino’s explanations “were too abstract for us to move forward” in supporting the restart.
METI Minister Yukio Edano has admitted that it will be difficult to restart the Oi reactors before summer in light of vehement opposition by nearby residents and local officials, especially since the Diet has failed to even begin discussion to approve a new nuclear regulatory agency. Edano also said that Japan is “working to cut reliance on nuclear power to zero in 40 years in principle, at the latest.” The government recently announced a plan to limit reactor operation to 40 years. However, that law allows for exemptions that could keep nuclear reactors in operation far longer. Public opinion of nuclear power has plummeted since the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
Six Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ) lawmakers from Fukushima Prefecture have declared in a written proposal that two idled reactors at the Oi power plant in Fukui Prefecture should not be restarted until consent is obtained from local governments. They criticized the government’s decision to grant approval for the restarts, which they said was made “too hastily,” before both the government and Diet have released final reports on the causes of the Fukushima nuclear disaster. In addition, they condemned the decision to declare so-called “cold-shutdown status” at the Fukushima Daiichi plant, in spite of the fact that radiation levels around the site of the disaster remain fatally high and the plant continues to experience repeated leaks and technical problems that could eventually lead to another explosion or meltdown. The lawmakers had hoped to hand the proposal directly to Prime Minister Noda; however, an aide to the Prime Minister said, “It is difficult for Noda to receive the proposal directly” because of fears that DPJ resistance to the restarts will increase.

State of Nuclear Politics in Japan

The Federation of Electric Power Companies of Japan has missed a deadline to report how it will handle half a ton of plutonium that it plans to extract from spent nuclear fuel this year. Failure to submit the report could subject Japan to international criticism, because terrorists could use just a small amount of plutonium to produce a nuclear bomb. The Federation had planned to use the extracted plutonium in the Monju fast-breeder reactor in Fukui Prefecture. However, that reactor has largely failed, leaving the power industry without a plan for the nuclear fuel cycle.
In the meantime, new cost estimates released by the Japan Atomic Energy Commission (JAEC) reveal that reprocessing spent nuclear fuel is more expensive that just burying it — a plan that is itself fraught with the possibility of dangerous consequences, should radiation leak into the ground, the ocean, or the atmosphere. In spite of the newly released estimates, many power industry officials continue to push for reprocessing. In the meantime, spent nuclear fuel continues to accumulate at the nation’s nuclear reactors.
Nuclear Crisis Minister Goshi Hosono is urging Diet members to put political differences aside and pass legislation to establish a new nuclear regulatory entity. Until the new regulator is established, the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA), which is part of the Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (METI), continues to regulate nuclear power in Japan. That arrangement has been widely criticized by both Japanese and international experts as a blatant conflict of interest, since METI is charged with promoting nuclear power.
Officials from NISA have compiled a 2,000-page document, including notes from news conferences conducted between March and October, and are now recording ongoing press conferences to share information with other government agencies. NISA, METI, and the Office of the Prime Minister were roundly criticized for failing to take minutes at meetings conducted immediately following the Fukushima nuclear disaster, in spite of the fact that failure to do so is prohibited by Japanese law. However, Kyodo news, which obtained the documents through a freedom of information request, reported that an account of at least one crucial press conference was missing: that conducted on March 12, the first time that NISA acknowledged possible meltdowns at the Fukushima reactors.
Over 1,000 protesters gathered in Tokyo on Earth Day (April 22) to demonstrate against the nuclear power in Japan.
Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda met with Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung this week. The two leaders confirmed that Japan will advise Viet Nam on two nuclear reactors planned for construction there.

TEPCO

TEPCO’s newly appointed chairman, Kazuhiko Shimokobe, will reportedly replace its current president, Toshio Nishizawa, and replace up to half of its board members with external candidates. However, outgoing chairman Tsunisa Katsumata, who was ousted from his position as a condition of the government’s plans to inject $12.2 billion in public funds into the utility, objects to the change and wants to keep Nishizawa as president. Government officials searched for two months for a candidate who would agree to accept the position of Chairman, and some call Shimokobe, who previously led the government-run Nuclear Damage Liability Facilitation Fund, a last resort. He has criticized TEPCO’s methods of determining electricity fees, as well as its management structure.

State of the Reactors

Kyodo news is reporting that power loss at the Fukushima Daiichi plant, which directly led to the nuclear meltdowns that occurred in three separate reactors there last March, occurred in part because a circuit breaker, which had been deemed unable to withstand high levels of seismic activity in 1978, was never replaced or upgraded. When the magnitude 9.0 earthquake occurred, the breaker collapsed and fell.
Although the government officially “decommissioned” crippled reactors #1 - #4 at the Fukushima Daiichi plant this week, TEPCO has not yet announced plans for reactors #5 and #6 there, as well as reactors #1 - #4 at the nearby Fukushima Daini plant, which is also in the nuclear evacuation zone. The governor of Fukushima Prefecture, Yuhei Sato, is vehemently opposed to keeping any reactors in the Prefecture in operation.

Contamination

Yukio Edano, the head of the Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (METI), admitted this week that some areas near the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, including parts of Futaba, Okuma, and Namie, may not be habitable for at least a decade because of ongoing dangerous radiation levels in the area. In seven other areas, including Minamisoma and Iitate, residents will not be able to return for at least five years. The new radiation estimates, which include projections through 2032, were based on monitoring conducted by aircraft this past November. “We have to prepare for the option of residents not necessarily returning,” Edano said.
Japan’s Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries is urging retailers to drop their own stricter safety standards for radiation contamination in food, in spite of consumers’ distrust of the government’s newly-established safety limits. Last year, the government said that general foods containing less than 500 Bq/kg of radioactive cesium were safe for human consumption. At the beginning of this month, they changed that standard to levels below 100 Bq/kg. However, in response to consumer concerns, a number of retailers have vowed to only sell products that have below-detectable cesium levels, as well as to post the radiation levels of those foods that do contain cesium. Ministry officials say that these independent standards may confuse people, and have ordered them to stop. One retailer explained, “We set our own criteria because consumers don’t trust the national standards. If the government tries to enforce only its standards, it will hurt its credibility.” Another pointed out that private-sector businesses have the right to add value to their products—in this case, by ensuring that they are safe to eat.
Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare announced that it will enact safety regulations for reconstruction workers assigned to highly radioactive areas near the site of the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Currently, the government maintains safety standards for decontamination workers and those stationed at the Fukushima plant, but not for those doing reconstruction work, which is expected to increase significantly as more evacuees are gradually allowed to move back to their homes. Officials said that workers must now be provided with dosimeters and annual health examinations in areas where radiation levels exceed five millisieverts per year.

So far all I have is kelp...I am putting kelp on everything nowadays...

Kelp? Is it rich in Potassium Iodide?

It is rich in both iodine and potassium. It saturates the thyroid with "good" iodine so when the RADIOACTIVE iodine becomes present, the thyroid rejects it.  But be aware, the kelp along the west coast of the U.S. has recently been found to be radioactive. Check where the product is made is made before you consume it. It should be from the southern hemisphere to be safe.

In my estimation, the iodine treatment is like trying to drain the ocean with a teaspoon.  Radioactive iodine has a half life of only 8 days, meaning that by the end of 30 to 40 days, it has lost most of its lethality through decay. Cesium, on the other hand, is still around after 300 years. And the other "iums" (strontium, plutonium, and a host of others) are present virtually FOREVER! Tepco continues to dump thousands of tons of radioactive waste water into the Pacific Ocean, sending it straight to our west coast.  I believe that the whole planet is ALREADY polluted with radiation.

Kelp? Is it rich in Potassium Iodide?

Hi Will, I hope this didn't mislead someone. Kelp is not enough in an emergency but it is a really good idea right now.
I have kelp pretty often now. Also, I take a tablet with 125 mg of Kelp. This is to help the body fend off radiation at a later time.  This doesn't have the lifesaving high concentration needed for a radiation emergency...Kelp as a food is rich in iodine. That, plus the kelp capsules would help the thyroid to be stronger, and help to survive the emergency - but a person should take the 130 mg dose potassium iodide pills in a radiation emergency.
We should not discount the benefits of kelp taken now...and all potassium-rich and anti - oxidant foods (see bottom of this post)  :) The last article mentions miso as being powerful against radiation. Article mentions: Avocadoes, green leafy vegetables, spirulina, algae, dulse, etc. as well as miso. The Zen Monks of Hiroshima and Nagasaki consumed miso and green vegetables and other antioxidant foods daily... many of these men and their close contacts survived. - Yowbarb
Below is one link and some quotes, about kelp.
Yowbarb Note: This person gives what she considers safe guidelines on the amt of iodine when there is NOT a nuclear emergency. PLS Note: She IS recommending kelp as a prophalaxtic measure so our thyroids are healthy already, before the emergency.
Please DO take potassium iodide in an emergency. Note from the Living Intentionally site:

Kelp: A Prophylactic Protocol for Radiation Emergencies
March 13, 2011 by Trane Francks

"If our thyroid’s iodine receptors are not fully bound with healthful iodine, any radioactive iodine isotopes we ingest or inhale can bind in our thyroid and cause long-term DNA damage. The result of that can be radiation sickness, cancer and death.
...I encourage you to eat kelp and plenty of it. Be creative in how you prepare it. And until you know otherwise – without doubt – keep your iodine levels sufficient to protect from long-term radiation poisoning."
"I recommend 50 g of kelp so as to cap daily iodine ingestion to  just under 1100 mcg/day.
I am well aware that this is far below the amount of KI recommended in emergency use, but if people are going to self-medicate, they need to do so at levels that are unlikely to cause harm. It’s a gamble: harm from excess iodine or excess radiation … either one is a losing proposition.
Please work with qualified medical professionals in creating a protocol. Radiation is serious business, but so is stable iodine. Don’t trade one problem for another. Be safe!"

How to Protect Yourself From Radiation

Posted: 03/16/11 01:30 PM ET
Note: Dosages may be crushed and taken mixed with milk or water. For kids, chocolate milk or raspberry syrup disguise the unpleasant taste.
Precautions
 While potassium iodide can be taken by a majority of people without any problems, it should only be used in case of a nuclear emergency. Doses in excess of the single (one time only) daily dose listed above should be taken only upon recommendation by a physician or public health authority. Patients should ask their doctor if taking quinidine, captopril, or enalopril, amiodarone, or if they are sensitive to iodine, or suffer from dermatitis herpetiformis, thyrotoxicosis or kidney problems before taking potassium iodate (or any thyroid blocker).

Prophylaxis
 It is best to take iodide prophylactically, prior to exposure. Every family should have a good supply in their homes. At this time we may recommend taking 10-40mg per day. A dose of 30-50mg is the range of dietary intake in Japan and relatively safe to take long term but under practitioner monitoring. Build up gradually: 10mg-20mg-30mg-40mg.

Then, in case there is an official announcement of significantly increased radiation, adults should go to the dose mentioned above: 130mg/day and children to lower doses per body weight, generally 65 mg, age 3-12 years. You can use a loading dose of two drops daily of Lugol's Iodine, a commonly available pharmaceutical form of potassium iodide, or SSKI, and increase to 130 mg if needed. See the U.S. Centers for Disease Control recommendations. Adults over 40 should not take KI unless public health officials say that contamination with a very large dose of radioactive iodine is expected, since have the lowest risk of developing thyroid cancer or thyroid injury after such contamination. They also have a greater chance of having allergic reactions to KI. Everyone should check with their doctor, in any case.
 
Other supplements that may be protective are: vitamin D and vitamin K as they support appropriate apoptosis, which is programmed death of cells that accumulate various DNA errors (due to radiation and other causes), and vitamin D also supports DNA repair.

Avoid exposure to rain that may be laden with radiation if we are exposed. You'll be informed by authorities if that is the case.

Other Radiation Dangers
 Besides I-131, there are other toxic radio-isotopes, including cerium 137 and plutonium. Dr. Gabriel Cousens has provided some excellent advice in his book "Conscious Eating." To protect yourself from cesium poisoning, consume plenty of high potassium foods, as potassium competitively inhibits cesium uptake. Foods high in potassium include avocados, sea vegetables, and leafy green vegetables, and are more effective than taking a potassium supplement.

To protect yourself from plutonium poisoning, eat lots of dulse and consume iron from plant sources, namely sea algaes such as spirulina and chlorella, which provide more iron than red meat. Miso soup has also been shown to have a protective effect. See also Michio Kushi's well-referenced book, "The Cancer Prevention Diet." The mineral, zeolite, is being investigated for taking most radioactive materials out of the body.
Additionally, foods and supplements high in antioxidants, will also help the body cope with these higher toxic levels as radioactive materials cause antioxidant depletion and ill health.

Summary
 The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has admitted it is 'quite possible' that fallout from the Japanese reactors could reach America, though levels expected to be so low as to be almost undetectable. Given the unprecedented circumstances of the current crisis, though, it would be prudent to keep some potassium iodide on hand as a precautionary measure.

Montanabarb good points we are undoubtedly being exposed to radiation already. Also, I know taking kelp and seeweed is a calculated risk...I decided to just take it...
I went and bought the miso again and lots of veges and going back to my diet of the 1970s. A modification of itfor me, what I think will work.  Thanks for your ideas...

If you go to www.amazon.com, you can find them there for starting at $7.35 for 180 tablets.  That was for the lower mg ones, there are also higher mg that cost more.  I'm not sure what the recommended mg dose is, does anyone else know?  I'm thinking I would like to place an order as well.

As far as I know this is the dose: 130 mg dose Potassium Iodide adults.
Reposting this, since my previous post was long...
All The best,
Yowbarb
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/hyla-cass-md/radiation-risks-and-prote_b_836363.html
...Recommended Doses
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the following doses of potassium iodide should be taken as a single dose within three hours of exposure, or up to 10 hours after exposure, although this is less effective.

• Adults : 130 mg (see below as well for CDC addendum) 

 • Adolescents: 12-18: WHO -- adult dose; CDC -- children's dose; if adult size (150 pounds or over) they should take the full adult dose, regardless of their age.
 • Children age 3-12 years: 65 mg

 • Infants : 1 mo. to 3 years, 32. 25 mg (ie half tablet)
 • Newborns to 1 mo., 1/4 capsule.

Note: Dosages may be crushed and taken mixed with milk or water. For kids, chocolate milk or raspberry syrup disguise the unpleasant taste.

I am not trying to be an alarmist but all this information needs so be told.

The heft from last year’s powerful March 11 earthquake shocked a sleeping fault line close to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant back to life, according to a new scientific study. And based on their findings, the scientists who conducted the study warn the battered nuclear power plant should brace itself for another big one.

The new study from the European Geosciences Union, published on Tuesday, cautions that the seismic risk at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has increased because the magnitude 9 earthquake jolted the plates underneath the area into a more precarious position. But that’s not all: The real problem may be the fluids forming as a result of the Pacific plate digging under the adjacent Okhotsk plate. Japan’s northern region lies directly above the Okhotsk plate.

According to the scientists, the fluids threaten to swim up toward fault zones, where they can soak into the brittle crust of the earth along the fault line, reducing friction, pulling the fault lines apart and triggering another large earthquake.

While the epicenter of the March 11 quake occurred about 100 miles away from the Fukushima Daiichi plant, the scientists say the next big earth-shaker could be centered much closer. The scientists concluded it would be wise to strengthen the plant’s infrastructure accordingly. The report did not predict when the earthquake will hit, except to say it would be in the “near future.”

The team of geophysicists behind the study – all based at Tohoku University in Sendai City in northeastern Japan — analyzed a sample of over 6,000 earthquakes that occurred from June 2002 to October 2011, in the northeast region. With this data, they used seismic tomography to create a detailed portrait of the area that mapped out subterranean activity. The technique is similar to the way a CT or CAT scan can uncover tumors inside humans, the scientists explain.

http://www.solid-earth.net/3/43/2012/se-3-43-2012.pdf

The team focused on the strongest aftershock following the March 11 earthquake that was centered inland. That magnitude 7 temblor hit exactly a month after the March 11 quake, underneath Iwaki, a city located just 25 miles from the troubled plant.

The paper’s parting words: “Therefore, much attention should be paid to the FNPP (Fukushima nuclear power plant) seismic safety in the near future.”
Indeed, there have been innumerable earthquakes near Fukushima since the reactors melted down.
Just look at a search on google for them. Click link....https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Fenenews.com%2F&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a#hl=en&client=firefox-a&hs=ijP&rls=org.mozilla:en-US%3Aofficial&sclient=psy-ab&q=site:http%3A%2F%2Fenenews.com%2F+earthquake+fukushima&oq=site:http%3A%2F%2Fenenews.com%2F+earthquake+fukushima&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&gs_nf=1&gs_l=serp.3...5845.6919.1.7149.10.10.0.0.0.0.210.1754.0j8j2.10.0.&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=66b39d2f3b1b3aa4&biw=853&bih=383

Senator Ron Wyden – a senior member of the Senate’s energy committee who toured the plant earlier this month – has been sounding the alarm about the danger to the spent fuel pools of another big earthquake.
http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/04/u-s-senator-tours-fukushima-warns-situation-worse-than-reported-urges-japan-to-accept-international-help-to-stabilize-dangerous-spent-fuel-pools.html

Mr. Wyden points out, though, that the schedule allows up to ten years to get all the spent fuel in all the Fukushima reactor pools out — something he says is too risky.
“This schedule carries extraordinary and continuing risk if further severe seismic events were to occur,” he wrote in his letter to Ambassador Fujisaki. “The true earthquake risk for the site was seriously underestimated and remains unresolved.
To be clear, Tepco seems to have some good ideas for stabilizing the fuel pool at reactor number 4, and eventually removing the spent fuel rods and storing them safely in “dry cask” storage.
http://www.tepco.co.jp/en/press/corp-com/release/2012/1201934_1870.html
http://photo.tepco.co.jp/en/date/2012/201203-e/120306-01e.html
http://ex-skf.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/fukushima-i-nuke-plant-reactor-4s.html?m=1
The problem is that the seismic dragon has apparently been awakened in the Fukushima area … and a decade is far too long to wait to deal with one of the greatest threats facing humanity.

If the geophysicists at the Tohoku University are right, a massive earthquake could hit very close to Fukushima at any time.

People invited to eat Cesium beef!!

This is the copy of the printed version of Fukushima Minpo on April 25, 2012, a local newspaper in Fukushima:
The reporter signs off as "Kyodo News", but reading the postscript part of the article it is clear that this is the original Fukushima Minpo article. It was probably fed to Kyodo News, as Fukushima Minpo is a member of Kyodo News.




What does it say?

The series title in the upper right corner: "New Happiness in Japan - Measure"

The article title in the middle: "Think what "food safety" means"

The subtitle of the article: "Cesium beef offered at an event"

From this information, if you conjure up the image of the gist of the article as "OK, the happiness in Japan in post-Fukushima is to gladly eat beef known to contain radioactive cesium to help producers as long as it is measured and disclosed properly, and that's food safety", I'll give you an A.

Quick translation (main article only, subject to revision later, maybe):
It was quiet in the office district on Sunday. It was March 11 afternoon, one year anniversary of the disaster. Couples with children, middle-aged men in jeans were entering a 12-story public building off the busy streets in Shinjuku, Tokyo.

On the tables in the kitchen that is used for cooking classes were the plates with hamburgers just cooked. Mitsuhiro Anada (age 40) told the people in the kitchen, "These contain 6 becquerels/kg [of radioactive cesium]. Please let me know if you don't want to eat them. We have also prepared cesium-free ones." About 30 people then sat at the table and started to eat.

Mr. Anada is the head of "Mo-ton Family", a meat processing company located in the northern Iwate. The event, "Let's eat cesium beef" came about after calling the customers who buy ham, hamburger meat and sausages from his company by mail order.

The main dishes are the hamburgers and beef stew made from the beef that had been detected with radioactive cesium. Both dishes tested far below the provisional safety limit (500 becquerels/kg [it was still the provisional safety limit in March this year]).

"I wanted the consumers to think about what "food safety" means, by showing the number [of radioactive cesium measurement] and having them eat [the meat]", said Anada when asked why he held this event.

Mr. Anada and his wife have run the company. They have avoided the beef from cattle fed with imported feed, and insisted on Iwate beef from free-grazing cattle. "Free-grazing cattle are safer, and the meat has richer taste." He made ham, and hamburgers without using chemical additives.

But he received a call late September last year from a cattle farmer that he had dealings with. "Radioactive cesium has been detected from the beef. It's below the provisional safety limit, but what do you want to do?"

In Iwate Prefecture, the shipment of beef was halted throughout the prefecture after radioactive cesium exceeding the provisional safety limit was found in the beef produced in the prefecture. After the shipment was resumed, the prefectural government started to conduct more thorough testing on shipment. Levels of cesium were non detectable in most beef, but the beef that Anada was planning to buy was found with cesium.

Maybe it was the grass in the mountains that they ate. Sure enough, the grass was found with radioactive cesium. "My insistence on natural beef turned against me", said Anada. If he doesn't buy, this beef would be sold at a huge discount, distressing the cattle farmer with whom he had a long-standing relationship.

Starting September, he bought the beef from three cows at a regular price. He sent the samples of the meat to a testing laboratory. The result was 10 to 60 becquerels/kg of radioactive cesium.

"I wonder if my customers still buy." The freezer in Anada's factory was filled with boxes containing this beef.


Thus ends the first installment of the series "New Happiness in Japan". It is hard not to guess what the next installments will be like. They will probably describe Anada's difficult decision to hold the event to educate the consumers, and grateful consumers who brought their own children to the event to learn what it means to be "safe" in the post-Fukushima Japan. And they lived happy ever after, the producer and the consumer, radioactive cesium or not.

Something like that.

Many Japanese people in Japan are shaking their heads in disbelief on learning about this event. They don't understand Mr. Anada, and they don't understand parents bringing their children to knowingly feed their children with cesium beef.
