Obama Approves Raising Permissible Levels of Nuclear Radiation in Drinking Water. Civilian Cancer Deaths Expected to Skyrocket

Civilian Cancer Deaths Expected to Skyrocket Following Radiological Incidents

The White House has given final approval for dramatically raising permissible radioactive levels in drinking water and soil following “radiological incidents,” such as nuclear power-plant accidents and dirty bombs. The final version, slated for Federal Register publication as soon as today, is a win for the nuclear industry which seeks what its proponents call a “new normal” for radiation exposure among the U.S population, according Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER).

Issued by the Environmental Protection Agency, the radiation guides (called Protective Action Guides or PAGs) allow cleanup many times more lax than anything EPA has ever before accepted. These guides govern evacuations, shelter-in-place orders, food restrictions and other actions following a wide range of “radiological emergencies.” The Obama administration blocked a version of these PAGs from going into effect during its first days in office. The version given approval late last Friday is substantially similar to those proposed under Bush but duck some of the most controversial aspects:

There are water filters

that address the radiation issue. Go to www.MADMAXSOLAR.COM for info and links to very good water filter. I drink a bunch more water with this filter system.... filter Addresses the major radioisotopes from Fukushima Disaster

Distilling water removes radiation

according to Natural News. Do you know anything about that? And if it would remove those other substances?

Funny

I see anarchists are commenting as well. I wonder how that would work out under anarcho-capitalism where nuclear business would not accept your private arbitration company and you would not trust theirs?

The irony is that many of us look down at "unenlightened sheeple" while spending hours listening to Alex Jones, Lew Rockwell or Stefan Molyneux or bogus youtube clips. In reality, our "Libertarians" suffer a serious case of Dunning–Kruger syndrome.

We are looking at increased radiation in water

and greatly increased aluminum from chem trails in the air and drinking water. Also Monsanto GMO food that kills animals who eat the cotton and corn plants.

Could this be part of the design for DE-population?

Stay indoors when they are spraying, and when it rains or snows. Use a good filtration system for water.

In this case, not cool to be HOT

Soon after Fukushima the radiation levels had gone to 200 count across the US and Europe so the UN raised the level of concern from 100 to 200 count. Later, as it accumulated, nothing was said. Shhhh........don't tell..... became the 'norm'. Produce in California, one of the most vital sources for food in the USA was showing high levels and milk was reading higher on the chart across America. Thanks to the lab at Berkley giving the information in the beginning. Soon, no laboratory in the US or Canada would test your water or food. They are gagged and under orders not to do so. Last I read, one lab in Italy was still testing if you shipped to them. Shame that the UN or the president which both think of themselves as a god, have no holy power to make it not so. Say it's OK if higher, as if by saying it, it's changed in some way.
All sources of information including our Gov's site were shut down. The original site on line with canisters spread across the US to protect the US from radiation with early warning should a nuclear war or accident occur was strangely only functioning at about half the sites. They were and had been inoperable. I don't recall the huge amount of money the company was receiving to keep those maintained. When Fukushima first happened, I looked up the private company in charge to find out more about them considering their incompetence. When clicking on their site thought the head of the organization, looked like Donald Rumsfield! Searched for the names under the picture. It WAS Donald Rumsfield. Why is it the same players, the liberty sucking tyrants, always seem to pop up when there's a problem, a chance to skim money?
In addition to the accumulative effects of Fukushima, most nuclear reactors in the US with a life span of 30 years are MUCH older and are periodically leaking radiation like a sieve.. The owners make more money by not replacing them. Live within 200 miles of one? Buy a radiation monitor. I had readings of over 500 down wind of Calhoun Nuclear plant after it flooded. The water? A Reverse Osmosis system [RO] is the most effective in cleaning the water to lower radiation. You won't hear about the readings in our food or water. With those currently running our government, it's every man, woman and child for themselves. Don't count on the government to protect you. Don't count on our money that is spent to protect us, to actually do so. There will be no warnings. In addition to our leaky reactors, Japan's accident is not only still leaking into the air and ocean, they've been burning radiated wastes with the smoke riding on the upper jet stream to further pollute the entire northern hemisphere. Their crops, rice were radiated so no country would buy them. Enter Hilary, she bought it all including livestock with our money. Those in our country are now unknowingly, eating our purchase. My heart goes out to all the people of Japan, however, buying and eating their radiated food isn't the act of compassion I would choose.
If someone were to actually plan and conspire to make ill and lower the population, they couldn't do a better job!
What doesn't add up is if planned, those responsible and their families are humans [I think] breathing air, eating food and drinking water. OR their food and water is all shipped in, a hepa filter is humming away in every mansion and they have the cure for cancer they aren't sharing.
Nothing surprises me anymore.

Meanwhile, Fukushima spews.

and it remains on an active fault

Spirulina, kelp, zeolite, bentonite. This problem will not go away in our lifetime, nor our childrens'.

I am not sure there is a choice.

We are on our own. Get a radiation gage and a better filter I guess.

Maybe this has something to do with it:
