Did Fukushima fallout affect Oregon kids' thyroids?

This study certainly suggests that it did. But hey, the Oregon health authorities told us that there was nothing to worry about, and so that study must just be wrong.

The other thing that no one in state government seems to want to be bothered with is radioactivity in the fish we eat. That attitude will change at some point -- let's hope it's sooner rather than later. Here we have Japanese docks washing up in Oregon. You don't think the Columbia River salmon, which swim most of the way to Fukushima, aren't coming back contaminated by the oceanside triple meltdown?

Nothing to see here, move along. It's all fine, in fact Hillary Clinton agreed to keep buying Japanese seafood in the wake of the meltdown without any radiation testing necessary:


No where to run...no where to hide!

The only running left for us is to as quickly as possible run these decision makers out of those positions. We are up against in a multitude of arenas. Unless we get out of the entertainment mode and shoving under the rug hoping someone else will fix conditions, the downward spiral will continue. We need to face up to the fact that some people simply do not care one whit about our health or that of all living things. What kind of people do not care as there is no escape for them either no matter what class, ruling elite or not?
Our health decisions must not be made based on politics or economics trumping. We need to stop voting for career politicians who ride along with whatever keeps them in office and who are not working on our behalf. When we know they make horrendous decisions, do not be polite hoping for the best or give them another two years to cause further betrayals, assist with the recall and get the signatures. We don't have to lay back here, feel powerless and fret. If people had only stepped up when they had a chance to recall Adams, we wouldn't have had this head tax (art tax) to deal with, would we?
We are now having to deal with a long list left of negatives left for us including fluoride.

Isotopes plus fluoride?

Surprisingly Tiny Amounts of Fluoride Can Change Your Thyroid Function

Too late with Fukushima?
There are other issues coming down the pike, that once implemented there is no turning back on health problems and we must not let propaganda and economic interests prevail when it comes to our health.
We have a situation right here in our own community where in May we have a choice to vote on whether to add fluoride, an industrial waste product this is, into our good drinking water.
Will we say No or will the economic interests using the children’s teeth "only" prevail?
All the money spent on pushing this, could be spent simply taking care of these children instead of pouring fluoride into our entire community.

If anyone is sitting on the fence be prudent and vote No as more studies are coming out about the negative effects of fluoride. Many EPA scientists have opposed fluoride. Certainly these scientists have more data and studies on this than other organizations that focus on the teeth and not the entire picture. Excerpts below.

The following documents why our union, formerly National Federation of Federal Employees Local 2050 and since April 1998 Chapter 280 of the National Treasury Employees Union, took the stand it did opposing fluoridation of drinking water supplies. Our union is comprised of and represents the approximately 1500 scientists, lawyers, engineers and other professional employees at EPA Headquarters here in Washington, D.C.

We tried to settle this ethics issue quietly, within the family, but EPA was unable or unwilling to resist external political pressure, and we took the fight public with a union amicus curiae brief in a lawsuit filed against EPA by a public interest group. The union has published on this initial involvement period in detail.\1
Since then our opposition to drinking water fluoridation has grown, based on the scientific literature documenting the increasingly out-of-control exposures to fluoride, the lack of benefit to dental health from ingestion of fluoride and the hazards to human health from such ingestion. These hazards include acute toxic hazard, such as to people with impaired kidney function, as well as chronic toxic hazards of gene mutations, cancer, reproductive effects, neurotoxicity, bone pathology and dental fluorosis. First, a review of recent neurotoxicity research results.
