Radiation Detected in Japan's Tap Water and Anaheim's Air

Categories: Main
If you don't want to be exposed to radiation, don't drink the water in Japan.

Or . . . gulp . . . breathe the air in Anaheim.

The Japanese government today says elevated levels of radioactive iodine from a crippled nuclear plant were detected at a water treatment plant that serves Tokyo and five surrounding cities.

Infants (children younger than 1) should not drink or bathe in tap water, the Japanese government warn.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says locals have nothing to fear from the radiation detected in the air in Anaheim and Riverside.

Monitors in air filters checked this past weekend through Monday found "all of the radiation levels detected during the detailed filter analysis are hundreds of thousands to millions of times below levels of concern," reads an EPA statement on testing in Anaheim Riverside and San Francisco.

"In a typical day," the EPA adds, "Americans receive doses of radiation from natural sources like rocks, bricks and the sun that are about 100,000 times higher than what we have detected coming from Japan. For example, the levels we're seeing coming from Japan are 100,000 times lower than what you get from taking a roundtrip international flight."

Here are the Anaheim results (all units are in picocuries-per-meter cubed):

Cesium-137: 0.0017
Tellurium-132: 0.012
Iodine-132: 0.0095
Iodine-131: 0.046

Riverside results:

Cesium-137: 0.00024
Tellurium-132: 0.0014
Iodine-132: 0.0015
Iodine-131: 0.011

As near as we can tell from our underground nuclear bomb shelter, the noses of EPA officials did not grow as they released the findings. Of course, growing third eyes woulda been even scarier.

The radioactive emissions from  a  given  source  of  water  or  from air   could  be  harmful to humans The best  way  out  to to  prevent this  harmful  effect  is  to  use  a  good  quality  air   and water  filters .Thanks  to  the  massive  industrialization  and  the  rapid  development to  science  and technology  such   problems are  but   natural  to  be  cropping   up .

Remove radiation from any watersource


Our University of Alabama patentedsolar desalination product uses no electricity, has no filters to replace, canbe taken anywhere and extracts pure water from any contaminated water source.It removes radiation, fluoride, salt, pesticides, bacteria, dirt and othercontaminants from any water. It aids people to be prepared for disasters, saveshundreds on bottled water and utility bills. Made tough in the U.S.A.

Wow. A doctor gave me 18.5 BILLION picocuries of I-131 back in December and I'm still here, and with no new appendages or superpowers to speak of.

Perhaps you idiots should calm TF down.

The genie is out of the bottle and we have no way of containing it. There is not a damned thing we can do if our water is contaminated by nuclear radiation. I guess we just like the idea of mass murder.
