  • Fallout Risks in Europe No Longer ‘Negligible’
    April 11th, 2011

    The concern is with pregnant women and infants.

    For whatever it’s worth, here is Google’s French to English translation of the document, Contamination de la France par les rejets de la centrale de Fukushima Daiichi: QUELS SONT LES RISQUES?

    Via: EurActiv:

    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 risks related to prolonged contamination among vulnerable groups of the population can no longer be considered “negligible” and it is now necessary to avoid “risky behaviour,” CRIIRAD claimed.

    However, the institute underlines that there is absolutely no need to lock oneself indoors or take iodine tablets.

    CRIIRAD says its information note is not limited to the situation in France and is applicable to other European countries, as the level of air contamination is currently the same in Belgium, Germany, Italy and Switzerland, for instance.

    Data for the west coast of the United States, which received the Fukushima radioactive fallout 6-10 days before France, reveals that levels of radioactive iodine-131 concentration are 8-10 times higher there, the institute says.

  • I was hoping you would post that.  There is simply an overwhelming amount of information, so much that I can't even think clearly on this subject anymore.    

    If you read up on G o r b y 's earth Summit (depopulation) and watch some of the older documentaries on Chernobyl there is a sense of inevitability.  

    IMO if people knew what was going on, they'd quit work and total panic would take hold.

    This is a very serious Lent.
