The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

Nuclear Lead poisoning cover-up UK, serious wildlife contamination found!

In a recent wildlife report it was shown that birds tested in the period winter 2010 to winter 2011 were found that elevated levels of lead (i.e. >20.0 μg/dL) were found in the blood of 34 % (n = 285) of waterbirds tested at four sites in Britain during the 2010/2011 winter this happening during some of the largest radioactive releases from nuclear power plants and medical reactors.

In this study, we examined data on current and historical trends in lead poisoning in British waterbirds and related these to the introduction of legislation restricting the use of lead. Our results indicate that lead poisoning has continued to affect a wide range of British waterbirds long after legal restrictions were introduced.

Of course, it could be argued that existing lead weights might be the cause of this anomaly but the main effected bird species prone to lead weight poisoning was the swans.

significant change in lead-related mortality in mute swans found during the same time period, 25 % (n = 12) between 1971 and 1987, 4.6 % (n = 65) between 1988 and 1999 and 2 % (n = 100) between 2000 and 2010

The annual breakdown of radioactive materials in the UK Water Standards report due 2012 for the period 2011 to 2012 (May) to date has not been published. But I was able to snag a Google cached copy of the USA military base UK Annual water report for that period. It clearly shows the lead pollution getting to, or above the safety levels for humans. Depending on the varying safety level. The US military had to go back the following month (October 2011) and redo the test for it to pass. Here is some evidence of that and also, where the contamination was likely from. the Budapest Medical Isotopes Institute in Hungary.

UK censored? Drinking water standards cover up

 ”..results in the table below include all chemicals covered by the US EPA’s Safe Drinking Water Act for which analysis was performed and concentrations of the chemicals that were detected from 1 January 2011 to 31 December 2011. Although Lead is reported as reaching the maximum contami nant limit during CY 2011 sampling time frame,”

“..At the time of sampling the MCL for lead was 0.020 and was reduced to the current standard of 0.015 in October 2011. The sample was taken in September 2011..”

60 percent of Europes lead contamination comes from the Electrical industry according to the European Union investigation into air quality,largely in the form of Radon pollution from various nuclear processes. the Radon then turns mainly into radioactive lead Pb210 that pollutes our waterways and drinking water.

Here is a video of Prof Chris Busby analysing a dust sample from tokyo using a spectrometer. He finds a large amount of Pb210 from Radon that was released from the Fukushima disaster in the sample as well as other more deadly isotopes

And heres a more recent six month investigation I did into air quality issues and other for you to analyse..

And more atmospheric cover up here;

And from the PEGASOS blog you can see that the climate atmosphere sampling was stopped to accommodate this planned nuclear release shown on the above Gieger reading between the 28 May and the 12th June 2012

And here is the Guardian going with the lead weight theory in spite of the evidence that is available. In fairness to the Guardian though the large amount of the evidence of contaminated drinking water has been covered up this last year and there is little evidence left on the web, but the evidence i found s compelling.
