This research covers the nuclear event in Japan of March 2011 and investigates the seriousness of the radiation leaked and how that affects residents in Japan, Europe and America.
The nuclear disaster at Fukushima Daiichi is a Level 7 Major Accident on the International Atomic Energy Agency’s International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale.
That’s the highest possible rating of any nuclear event, and Chernobyl was also a level 7 Major Accident.
Firstly let’s declare some interests and loyalties:
1. The nuclear power industry wants to appear as safe and competent as possible.
2. Mainstream media wants to report the most shocking and drawn-out disaster to sell more papers and increase readership.
3. Government wants you to be uninformed and scared by anything nuclear, because it makes the citizen feel small and powerless, while making the big brother state appear to have all the answers.
The radiation leaks of Iodine-131, Cesium-134 and Cesium-137 amongst others from the multiple reactor units in Fukushima will render the immediate vicinity a dangerous radioactive zone for many years to come.
Fukushima radiation killing children, government hiding the truth 2014 04 22 Katsutaka Idogawa, former mayor of Futaba, a town near the disabled Fukushima nuclear plant, is warning his country that radiation contamination is affecting Japan’s greatest treasure - its children.

Asteroids cause dozens of nuclear-scale blasts in Earth’s atmosphere 2014 04 22
Asteroids caused 26 nuclear-scale explosions in the Earth’s atmosphere between 2000 and 2013, a new report reveals.
Some were more powerful – in one case, dozens of times stronger – than the atom bomb blast that destroyed Hiroshima in 1945 with an energy yield equivalent to 16 kilotons of TNT.
Most occurred too high in the atmosphere to cause any serious damage ...
‘Editing DNA’ to eliminate genetic conditions now a reality 2014 04 22 Scientists have employed a revolutionary genome-editing computer technique that accurately identifies one faulty genetic “letter” among billions and effortlessly repairs a genetic condition in animals, paving way for human trials.
The success, by MIT in Boston, is the latest achievement in the field of genome editing that has been catapulted into the spotlight through a technology that can pinpoint genetic faults ...
EU should ’undermine national homogeneity’ says UN migration chief 2014 04 22
