Radiation leaked from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power complex in Japan has been detected in seaweed in Puget Sound, but researchers say there's no need for alarm.
KIRO 7 obtained samples of seaweed from Budd Inlet near Olympia two weeks ago. Professor Kris Starosta at Simon Fraser University confirmed the presence of radioactive iodine Monday.
"We have seen iodine 131 in the sample you sent us," he said. "I think it's pretty clear by now this must be iodine 131 from releases from Fukushima."
Between Ann Coulter telling you radiation is good for you, the FDA raising the safety limits for exposure to the sky, Canadian officials deciding there is no need to test food for radioactivity, and the constant drumbeat of "no need to worry, no need to worry, no need to worry", a terrifying reality comes into view.
Between the Gulf of Mexico, the Pacific ocean, and now the meat and dairy animals in Japan and the US/Canada, there is isn't enough uncontaminated food to feed all the humans on planet Earth. The rulers of the world (who we may assume have already secured uncontaminated food stocks for themselves and their families) have decided that the simplest solution to hold off a revolution is to convince everyone that eating oil-soaked and radioactive food is really okay.

When the Castle Bravo nuclear test was carried out, the Japanese fishing boat Daigo Fukuryū Maru was 70 miles away from the source of the radiation and left the area as quickly as possible. One month later the radio operator died. Because the United States refused to discuss the nature of the weapon tested, the fish on the Daigo Fukuryū Maru and other fishing boats nearby was sold into the Japanese markets, triggering an epidemic of radiation related illnesses and birth defects.
Total amount of nuclear fuel in the Castle Bravo bomb, under 500 Kg. Total amount of nuclear fuel at Fukishima, 1760 metric tons. The bomb was over in an instant. Fukushima will continue to pour out radiation for decades to come, just as Chernobyl has.
Now, stop for a moment and think about the lies about Saddam's nuclear weapons, Iran's nuclear weapons, the assassination of JFK, MLK, RFK, Vince Foster, the economy, the Gulf Oil Disaster, the USS Maine, and on and on and on, lie after lie after lie, endlessly without shame and without remorse. Then ask yourself this one question. Are you willing to bet your life, your life, that the government and media are actually telling you the truth this one time?
