Computers and Dirty Radiation and the Easy Way to Fix the Problem

This is a must see video if you have a laptop, ipad, kindle, cell phone or any type of computer in your home. ( who doesn’t) This video was made by the raw food expert David Wolfe,he shows how much radiation we are exposed to when using your computers and how easy it is to fix the problem. I have been sending this video to my friends and family. This video is really something to see

Fukushima: At the Very Least, Your Days of Eating Pacific Ocean Fish Are Over

Fukushima: At the Very Least, Your Days of Eating Pacific Ocean Fish Are Over

This post came from Sprinterlife.com. It’s regarding the safety of eating fish from the Pacific Ocean.

We’re writing this post because we feel that it is extremely important for everyone to be aware of this crisis, and it’s not being sufficiently reported on. In our entire month in the US, we did not see this in the mainstream media and hardly anyone knew about it. PLEASE read this, research it, and share it in social media. Of all the environmental things we’ve written about on our blog, this is probably the most catastrophic. In a nutshell, Japan’s nuclear watchdog has now declared the leak of radioactive water from Fukushima a “state of emergency.” Each day, 300 tons of radioactive water seeps into the ocean, and it’s now clear that TEPCO has engaged in a two-and-a-half-year cover-up of immense magnitude. If you’re still eating fish, STOP. The contamination has made it’s way to the USA. A Stanford University study just showed that every bluefin tuna tested in the waters off California has shown to be contaminated with radiation that originated in Fukushima. Every single one. Our FDA assures us that our food supply is safe. They LIE. Don’t trust the government testing. They are covering up the magnitude of this situation. The only safe level is zero. In the wake of Fukushima, The White House has given final approval for dramatically raising permissible radioactive levels in drinking water and soil. The EPA says the new levels are within the “safe” range, but they keep moving those safe levels higher as things unfold. In soil, the PAGs allow long-term public exposure to radiation in amounts as high as 2,000 millirems. Welcome to the new normal. – See more at: http://sprinterlife.com/2013/08/fukushima.html#sthash.qLXVZ1pf.dpuf

Taking a trip? Skip the airport body scan

I have written about this before but with Thanksgiving coming up I want to mention about how dangerous the new airport scanners are. I was told that one scan is the same as getting 30 x rays. Also, some airlines like U.S Air are telling their workers to not get the scan. I think it is completely irresponsible to subject people to that amount of radiation. You have a choice, you can forgo the scan and get hand searched. Though some people have complained about getting hand searched but I think it’s better than getting radiated from the scanner. Here is an article I found about it also.

Health fear over new airport scanners

Danger? Passengers exposed to X-rays

New X-Ray scanners at British airports could be exposing passengers to potentially dangerous levels of radiation, according to one senior radiologist.

The machines are designed to “strip search” passengers by using low-level X-Rays, which produce an image of their bodies, revealing whether they are secretly carrying weapons, explosives or illegal drugs.

But the scanners may not be safe for certain people, particularly children and women in the early stages of pregnancy, according to Dr Sarah Burnett, who works as an independent radiologist in London.

“It is illegal to expose people to any level of radiation without medical justification,” said Dr Burnett, who raised her concerns after being asked to undergo a full-body scan at Luton Airport.

“So how is it that the Government is allowed to irradiate us willy-nilly at airports?

“I am particularly concerned about the potential effects on women in their first trimester of pregnancy.

“That is when the risks of the baby developing genetic abnormalities are highest because radiation exposure can damage the body’s reproductive DNA.”

Called the Rapiscan Secure 1000, the device looks like a big filing cabinet and fires a low-energy X-Ray beam over the body.

It has been trialled mainly at Heathrow, where four have been in use over the past couple of years.

However, it has already attracted controversy for producing revealing images clear enough to make out passengers’ genitalia.

Indeed, U.S. airports have now refused to use them until the manufacturer can promise more privacy.

The X-Rays penetrate one-tenth of an inch into the body, enough to detect any devices or drugs hidden just under the skin.

According to Rapiscan Systems, the California-based company which makes the machines, each scan generates only three microrems of radiation – compared to 10,000 in a chest X-Ray.

The firm claims this is no higher than the amount that the body is normally exposed to every five minutes from “natural” radiation in the atmosphere.

The company also says that frequent flyers would need to have at least 5,000 scans a year before there would be any health threat.

What’s more, it adds that longhaul passengers will soak up more so-called radiation during the flight, from the plane’s equipment, than from the scan.

However, last year the Transport and General Workers Union investigated claims that five female security guards suffered miscarriages as a result of prolonged exposure to radiation from using the machines at Heathrow.

“The machines are referred to as ‘low-dose’, but there is a school of thought that there is no ‘safe’ radiation dose,” said Dr Burnett, who has had 15 years’ experience working in the NHS.

“It is true that passengers are exposed to ‘cosmic’ radiation within the aircraft, but there’s nothing they can do about that – it can’t be avoided.

“We can, however, avoid deliberately exposing people to radiation.”

The British Airports Authority said passengers are free to refuse the X-Ray. But if they do, they will then have to be hand-searched.

Dr Gill Markham from the Royal College of Radiologists urged passengers not to worry, as the dose is so low it is unlikely to cause harm.

But women who think they may be in the early stages of pregnancy should tell airport staff if asked to have the scan.
