MOX and Medical isotopes are bad for you and everyone! Arclight2011
These processes create Radon that make Pblead etc..

Here is Jamnoises Video with her findings.. She will have a video out soon i hope to show miscarriage and still birth statistics using the FOI requests.. i lost three kids those ways, so i am interested to see the dates she comes up with.. Great sleuthing Jamnoise..!
Jamnoise72
More NHS Statistics. (Part2) Stats from Watford General Hospital Trust

Here are some of my preliminary findings correlating the data from Jamnoise72 on You Tube with some of mine.

The dates of large increases in respiratory problems where the patient was admitted straight to casualty or ICU, correlate with the dates of contamination noted by bloggers in Europe concerning nuclear releases from Hungary and Fukushima.

There is a hidden price to pay for medical isotope production.. and it is especially being paid by the people of Budapest and Fukushima, Miyagi prefectures in Japan as well as the west coast of the USA and the whole of Europe!

Europe too paid a price! The scientists NEVER discuss the PbLead issue!?? But bloggers do!

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 ………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.

Dr Busby describes measurements made on an airconditing unit filter from inside an apartment in central Tokyo. This was sent by a lady in Tokyo who wanted to know if it was safe to live there. The filter only collected air from inside the apartment. It shows the presence of 130000Bq/kg radioCaesium in the dust plus enriched Uranium and for the first time Lead-210/Polonium-210. The apartment was evacuated from the Tuesday after the catastrophe and the machine switched off; and the family returned 5 months later. This and much other information about the health effects and cover ups, including leaked data are to be found in Dr Busby’s new book in Japanese: the Horror of Fukushima, published on 25th July by Kodansha in Tokyo

ALNAlYSIS: European radiation safety agencies detect traces of iodine-131 in air, source of leak unknown, Bellona, Nov. 17, 2011 (Emphasis Added):
http://www.bellona.org/articles/artic…
[T]hose with knowledge of the field who have lent their views to Bellona were not so quick to discard the possibility that an event at a reactor, commercial or otherwise, could be the potential cause of contamination. “If even the IAEA has acknowledged elevated levels of iodine-131 not only over the Czech Republic but over other European countries as well, then it means something very unpleasant, and uncommon has happened,” the renowned Russian environmentalist and a corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Professor Alexei Yablokov told Bellona in an interview. […] Other experts that Bellona has talked to agreed that either a serious accident has taken place or an emergency situation at a research or power-generating reactor that necessitated “venting” radioactive substances in the course of an “emergency discharge” into the atmosphere.

The Nuclear Industry’s Pharmaceutical Hypothesis [W]hat would remain most likely is that the source of the radioactive iodine is either a commercial or research reactor. […] For iodine-131 to appear in measurable quantities, it has to result from a chain reaction of uranium fission — something that takes place in nuclear reactors run at commercial nuclear power plants or research organisations.

Radiation risks from Fukushima ‘no longer negligible’
Published 11 April 2011, updated 15 April 2013

The risks associated with iodine-131 contamination in Europe are no longer “negligible,” according to CRIIRAD, a French research body on radioactivity. The NGO is advising pregnant women and infants against “risky behaviour,” such as consuming fresh milk or vegetables with large leaves.

In response to thousands of inquiries from citizens concerned about fallout from the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Europe, CRIIRAD has compiled an information package on the risks of radioactive iodine-131 contamination in Europe.

The document, published on 7 April, advises against consuming rainwater and says vulnerable groups such as children and pregnant or breastfeeding women should avoid consuming vegetables with large leaves, fresh milk and creamy cheese.

…….

The institute stresses that there is no risk whatsoever, even for children, of standing in the rain without protection. But consumption of rainwater as a primary source of drinking water should be avoided, particularly among children, it said.

As for tap water, underground catchments or large rivers should not present any problem. But the institute suggests that the situation of water from reservoirs that collect rainwater from one or more watersheds, such as hillside lakes, should be examined more closely.

[…..]

Food chain

Spinach, salads, cabbage and other vegetables with large surface areas are among those food products that are particularly sensitive to iodine-131 contamination, if they are cultivated outside and exposed to rainwater. Washing vegetables does not help, as iodine-131 is quickly metabolised by the plants, CRIIRAD notes.

Fresh milk and creamy cheeses, as well as meat from cattle that have been outside eating grass, are categorised as foods that may have been indirectly contaminated and must also be monitored. Contamination of milk and cheese from goats and sheep may be of a greater magnitude than that of produce from cows.

  2. Sellafield Nuclear Plant (Discharges)
    HC Deb 20 November 1996 vol 285 cc552-3W 552W

    § Mr. Meacher

    To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what are the permissible limits set for the annual discharge of nitrous oxide from Sellafield; and what quantities of nitrous oxide were emitted by British Nuclear Fuels from Sellafield in each of the past 10 years. [4721]
    553W

    § Mr. Clappison

    The Environment Agency monitors releases of, and set limits for, oxides of nitrogen NOx under the integrated pollution control regime. The description, oxides of nitrogen, includes nitrous oxide N2O as well as nitric oxide NO and nitrogen dioxide NO2.

    Oxides of nitrogen were released by the large boilers, which were regulated under the Environmental Protection Act 1990. These have now closed and data are available only for the years 1993 and 1994, as follows:
    Year Annual release limit tonnes per year Actual release tonnes per year
    1993 1,550 177.3
    1994 2,132 200

    Integrated pollution control authorisations have been issued this year for the Magnox and Thorp processes with the following limits for NOx
    Process Annual release limit tonnes per year
    Magnox 35
    Thorp 90

    Actual release data will be available from 1997.

    London faces infringement

    Commission rejects UK application to delay compliance with nitrogen dioxide laws in 12 zones

    16 of the UK’s 31 other zones, including London which does not expect compliance until 2025, also face infringement action. Commission is seeking separate clarification on five issues in London

    The European Commission (Commission) has objected to the UK’s application to delay compliance with one or both of the nitrogen dioxide (NO2) annual mean and hourly limit values in 12 of 24 zones from 1 January 2010 to 1 January 2015. In four of the 24 zones, the Commission has set shorter deadlines than the 2015 deadline requested. Only three of the UK’s 43 zones complied with both NO2 limit values by January 2010. These legal standards were introduced in 1999 to be complied with by 1 January 2010. Time extensions are subject to strict conditions including demonstrating that compliance will be achieved by the new deadline which cannot be later than 1 January 2015.

    The Commission’s decision noted, as Clean Air in London (CAL) had highlighted to the Commission in January 2012 and the Government clarified to the Commission in a letter dated 2 April 2012, the UK had not applied in September 2011 for a time extension for 16 further zones, for which compliance was expected by 2020 and in London’s case by 2025, despite the Commission initially considering it had done so. In a ground breaking legal case, brought against the Government by ClientEarth, the Court of Appeal confirmed on 30 May 2012 that the Commission can take infringement action against the UK for breaches of NO2 limit values in 2010 (or thereafter) unless a time extension is obtained.

    In a separate but closely related development, the Commission has written to CAL about CAL’s complaint lodged in January 2012 about breaches of limit values for NO2 and dangerous airborne particles (PM10) in London and elsewhere (the Complaint). The Commission has asked the UK authorities to provide them with clarification on: the process by which the UK obtained a time extension until 2011 to comply with the PM10 daily limit value in London; the exceedances at Neasden Lane, Horn Lane and Upper Thames Street; the future monitoring stations they will use to communicate compliance; the use of pollution suppressants near monitoring stations; and the situation with regard to air quality plans and programmes for NO2 e.g. with respect to the 16 zones referred to above for which no time extension was sought.

    In its response to CAL, the Commission has said the Complaint, for which CAL is the lead complainant with others writing in support, has now been registered as EU Pilot 3628/12/ENVI. It is current Commission practice to contact Member States through the EU Pilot before deciding whether infringement action is required and appropriate. The EU Pilot operates on the basis of a 10 week deadline.

    Simon Birkett, Founder and Director of CAL, said “For the first time people can see clearly the scale and seriousness of the UK’s ‘invisible’ air pollution. With time extensions rejected for 12 zones and enforcement action anticipated for a total of 28 zones, for failing to comply with nitrogen dioxide (NO2) limit values by 2010, the European Commission’s decision shows how ludicrous it was of the Government to say it won’t comply with the same standards in London until 2025. Clean Air in London urges the Commission to prioritise urgently for infringement action those zones, including London, which have the worst air pollution.

    “Air pollution is the biggest public health risk after smoking. It can cause asthma in children and cardiovascular disease in those aged over 65. World Health Organisation guidelines and legal limits for air quality are breached by a factor of two or more near our busiest roads. London, for example, had the highest annual mean concentrations of NO2, a toxic gas, of any capital city in Europe in 2010 with levels comparable to Beijing before it took action for the 2008 Olympics. The UK had a higher percentage of zones exceeding the limit value plus then allowed margin of tolerance for NO2 in 2009 than any other country in Europe.

    “It is scandalous the UK did not commit to any new measures in any zone in its application to delay compliance with NO2 limit values and the Mayor had none in his Manifesto. Equally serious, Mayor Johnson is applying pollution suppressants to reduce dangerous airborne particles (PM10) (which he calls ‘dust’) in front of air quality monitors used to warn the public of smog episodes and report legal breaches. The Mayor says it is for the Government to issue press releases about smog episodes not him and for the Government it is always the wrong sort of air pollution, measured on the wrong sort of monitoring network, for it to warn the public (i.e. it must be high ozone on the Government’s monitoring network). Instead, we need: political leadership; fewer and cleaner (diesel) vehicles; to reduce emissions from buildings; to protect the most vulnerable; and to ensure an air quality legacy from the Olympics.

    “With the eyes of the world upon us, the UK should be leading the world in tackling air pollution not relying on pollution suppressants and dodging smog warnings.

    “Last but not least, CAL wishes to thank all those who have supported its Complaint and the European Commission for taking decisive action to protect health in the UK,” said Simon Birkett.
