The Fukushima Daiichi plant is the greatest environmental catastrophe in human history.
We will explore the multiple site parallel disasters, the genesis factors and engineering decisions, current lack of containment, and public relations planning by Japan, the IAEA International Atomic Energy Agency, and inaction by USA and world governments. The most pressing crisis at the moment is Cooling Pool 4. Reactor 1 lost containment before the tsunami from Sendai struck as it was located over a major fault line. Reactor two has proven criticality and loss of the coriuim below the reactor building. Reactor 3 is the MOX or Mixed Oxygen Plutonium hot reactor, with 38,000 times more dangerous radioactivity and more touchy reactivity that detonated acritical hydrogen ignited nuclear explosion of the cooling pool above the reactor, over many kilometers away. Faux engineering has come to light re the hydrogen Taurus capture and inability to tolerate pressures with acute station blackout and arguments between two engineer groups at Fukushima Daiichi GE for early or late hydrogen release, resulting in a hydrogen explosion resulting in Reactor 2 core breach and loss of the nuclear corium below the plant. With millions of tons of moderate to highly radioactive water in sandy soil subsidence and building structural integrity is a major challenge to maintain containment of cooling pool four and the remaining materials that have not yet exited into the ground to interaction with Zirconium mediated superheated Tritium water generation. Steam tubes going many kilometers into the ocean flood off Fukushima or toward Tokyo subway train tunnels would explain very high radiation readings even underground in the complex system of underground fault lines that can transmitted superheated radioactive steam underground to the largest metropolitan region of any city of Earth.
Serious deficiencies and engineering inactions can be pointed to a complete lack of justifiable concern on the part of Tepco, the Japanese Government, GE and IAEA and USA and World Nuclear Industry. No ground penetrating radar or remote satellite site data has been collected and circulated to scientists or the public of the position underground of the nuclear melted corium of all four reactors. Millions of highly contaminated seawater has been released into the Pacific Ocean, and plans we confirmed by Tepco and the Japanese government to prevent ocean floor superheated nuclear steam jet release of highly radioactive isotopes by concrete ocean floor covering of hundreds of miles. A sea wall, tunneled DU-container corium catchers, Kevlar-spidersilk tents over each reactor, filtration systems to convert to solid radioactive waste, double hulled ships to transport to a final deep trench ocean or land mine facility has not been executed. Thus by August 2012 approximately 61 controlled massive radiation air and water radioisotope releases have taken place, with billions of Terrabequerels of radiation isotopes released into the Pacific ocean, and troposphere headed East to North America, and eventually entire Northern Hemisphere and then worldwide.
Four plants are now nuclear waste sites with Reactors 5 and 6 offline with many thousands of tons of 50 + years of highly enriched uranium, spent fuel with Plutonium, and constant generation of Trititium laced superheated steam carrying Cesium 134 with a 2 year short half-life, Cesium 137 with a 40+ year half-life, Strontium 90 with similar half-life. The latter two isotopes carry a toxic load requiring four half lives to reduce to approaching background if the reactions stop releasing isotopes. Plutonium generates a 24,800 year half-life and 100,000 year reduction to background and U238 has a 4.5 Billion half-life requiring 18 Billion years to background levels.
All nuclear plants on Earth release Tritium as containment of the nuclear reaction with slow neutron modulation of fission produces neutron inserted water molecule generated heavy water or Deuterium or Tritium, depending on a single or double neutron insertion. These isotopes of water displace the DNA codons one base pair, resulting in distorted replication of the DNA helix, and hence DNA breaks, heteroptoic DNA fragments that may be attached anywhere in the genome, or deletions of genetic material necessary of cellular function and life.
Internal radiation in the form of radioactive ‘fleas’ embedded in cells, tissues and organs of living organisms, robs the cells of electrons, promotes free radical singlet oxygen, hydroperoxy OH and nitroperoxyl radiacals ONOO, breaks DNA bonds, disrupts tertiary protein folded structure and enzymatic maximum activities, and activates mitochondrial death signal to cellular apoptosis, blocking autophagic cellular organelle renewal in cells with sublethal radiation doses, causing functional deficits and accelerated aging, pathogen entry and toxic heavy metal and chemical accumulation. The most sensitive fastest replicating cells are glial cells, crypt gut wall cells, epidermal prickle cell layer cells, bone marrow stem cells, lymphocytes, spermatogonia. Least sensitive are muscle and nerve cells.
Glutathione depletion, TBARS oxidized cell membranes markers, DNA adducts such as 8-0H-Guanosine, can be measured as post-radiation tissue changes. Micronucleii, heteroptopic DNA fragments attached in wrong positions, and bloated mitochonrdria with disrupted cellular organelles lacking normal autophagic renewal, show on scanning electron microsopy. The model of functional environmental medicine is ‘terrain’ based on changes in tissues that promote inflammation, cytokines, hypoxia, acidosis, bioaccumulation of toxins and heavy metals, stealth pathogen growth, and loss of detoxification and tissue structure and function. Radiation promotes every form of illness from trisomy 13, 18, and 21 Downs Syndrome, as well as small for dates, DNA gene SNP Single Nuclear Polymorphisms, DNA gene displacement to non-regulatory gene chromosome placement, and serious deficiencies of methylation pathways, neurotransmitter deficiencies, dysmyelination and lack of glial energetic neuron parakaryon action potentials leading to loss of neural networks, and transcortical learned neural networks.
Radioisotopic sublethal bioaccumulations lead to sublethal hypocortical frontal and temporal lobe function with behavioral changes and learning deficiencies, release of more basal fight or flight, reptilian brain drive center amygdala, with immune deficiencies, loss of gut and skin pathogen barrier and explosion of stealth pathogens and bleeding disorders, maldigestion with pancreatic enzyme deficiencies, leaky gut disorder, peripheral neuropathy, liver detoxification deficiency, and accelerated mitochondrial aging of heart muscle, chronic fatigue with loss of central adrenergic, thyroid and adrenal deficiencies, connective tissue and fibroblast dificiencies with lack of wound healing and loss of tissue tensile strength of tendon, ligaments, and interosseus ligaments, accelerated osteopenia and osteoporosis, loss of liver and renal function, and accelerated brain peroxynitrate, hydroperoxy radical mediated metabolic stasis or neuron cell death of brain or cerebellum, midbrain, spinal cord and neuromuscular junction as well as A Delta and C Fiber.
Civil defense on the personal level should include behaviors based on good data from reliable public and private sources of air plume, water and food contaminations in real time. NIOSH N95 masks, outside clothes and boots, decontamination tents and showers, Nutriodine diatomic iodine, long acting ALA Alpha Lipoic Acid, Acetyl-S-Glutatione, Curcumin, and other herbal inducers of PGC1alpha, SOD1, Glutathione Peroxidase, etc., probiotics that prevent respiratory and gastrointestinal isotopic absorption, oral chelation natural formulas, organic non-acid washed zeolite, IP6 Ionositol hexaphosphate 6 and lactoferrin free Fe2 Iron two binding to prevent radiation induced Fenton peroxidation hydroperoxidation generation, immunoglobulins for immune support, ergothionine and selenium organic chelates, vitamin D2 and D3, triacetyl uridine, ellagic acid, ferulic and gallic acid, etc that have antimutagenic protective actions.
Clean non-radioactive water, food, and home and vehicle HEPA and more advanced bucky-ball nanoparticle iosotopic filters are major public health real time civil defense stockpiles of food, natural medicine, filters, and biohazard decontamination equipment, masks and clothing are essential for population survival. Evacuation plans for Japan should have proceeded immediately from Northern Japan. Averaging radiation dosage from highly radioactive debris and low radioactive debris and shipping all over Japan to high temperature incinerators is a crime against the biosphere and mankind. The Hague, International Court of Justice and UN actions should immediately stop remobilizing radioactive millions of tons of trash from the Fukushima disaster. Food certification in Bq/kg with isotope profiling is needed to prevent bioaccumulation in nature, agriculture and human populations over many years. USDA and agencies monitoring international food trade must add this dimension to food safety.
Isotopes make biological and chemical molecules appear more toxic to the body producing a pronounced amplification of T-Cell and B-Cell activation, neural activation of the conditioned response of environmental sensitization. Predictably, background radioisotopes will increase environmental, food, chemical and scalar radiation sensitization and activate the full complement of all diseases, birth defects, prematurity, dementia, accelerated aging and multisystem organ failure. Proactive reduction in bioaccumulation and exposure with personal and public health action plans will ameliorate genetic, organ and tissue as well as population behavioral functional deterioration. CNS, Blood, Gastrointestinal, Reproductive, Detoxification function of large population of mankind will become the greatest accelerant of environmental sensitization, behaviors, and ability for society to be sustainable as crisis levels occur first in Japan, and within years North America, then the Northern Hemisphere and the entire planets population and biosphere.
We must address this total load environmental crisis impacting our world with methods to access individual, populations, organ and reproductive effects and ways to prevent over years and decades major loss of normal population genetics, timelines of population wellness, and civil defense to an ongoing global hazard. All 504 nuclear plants release Tritium that displaced DNA codons, most store onsite loads of toxic isotopes, almost all cannot tolerate station blackouts, none can withstand 7+ Richter earthquakes, and ground and air contamination zones of prematurity, dementia, and disease are well published in zones around all reactors, even without loss of full containment or hot reactor shutdown due to extreme weather, earthquakes, CME coronal mass ejections, near Earth objects such as asteroid impacts, and vulcanism. Senators Diane Feinstein and Wyden have been presented a plan for radiation plume commercial airliner real-time CPM milliSievert plume data collection and computer modeling for flight and public health safety. No response or action plans from the senators has yet been forthcoming.
