Make the best of it. If there are others with you help them by being as calm as you can and don’t be discouraged. [See also: Head of Fukushima health study: 100 mSv/yr OK for pregnant moms -- "Effects of radiation do not come to people that are happy... They come to people that are weak-spirited"

[...]

If food or water has been contaminated by the dust, internal damage may occur

[...]

If civil defense radio announcements have said that radiation has been high in your section [...] watch especially for these developments in the two weeks following exposure:

These conditions [...] should be reported to a doctor or the nearest first aid station.

    They should report to the same place as the flight attendants, and the FUKU citizens affected.. the nuclear industry.

    They will all be told to smile a lot… so that the little rad boy 'germs' cannot get them.

    Of course, doctors are not told how to deal with radioactive contamination, so they are little or no help. They are trained to administer even MORE radiation, in case you are sick..

    Bottom line, you cannot depend on the 'experts' to protect you. Figure it out yourself, do what it takes to protect yourself and your family or suffer.. that is what it amounts to.

    So much for "our friend the atom."

    Notice that among the equipment they recommend having in the shelter they make no mention of obtaining a geiger counter. The last thing they want is citizens able to determine for themselves where rad contamination is, and how bad it is (particularly since the US government/military was dumping fallout all over the very citizens they were supposed to protect–not to mention their own enlisted men–on a regular basis in those days).

    Post-Fukushima, we see how ludicrous is the claim that "highly trained" civil defense teams will "make a thorough check of radiation levels and characteristics," and "those facts will be relayed to you by radio as fast as they come into civil defense headquarters in your area." We're still waiting for that information re: Fuku's fallout …

    Is it just my cynicism, or does the panel of "experts" at the "central radiation control point" (5:26) resemble the war room from Dr. Strangelove?

    Now 60 years later, I am asking myself.
    What was it like to live in a time when one could eat fish from the sea and enjoy uncontaminated vegetables? I'll bet they tasted better too.

      As a kid I lived near a Strategic Air Command base and was told that meant extra danger as SAC bases would be targets. But I was also told since we were in the heartland, we'd likely not take first hits, which meant well-build shelters were in order. I could extrapolate from storm shelters already in place for tornadoes but learned these new shelters would have to be far superior in engineering, well-stocked, and suitable for an extended stay for the whole family. But the shelters were costly and my family – along with all other families I knew – couldn't afford one. So – back to trust while knowing the end could arrive any time! Positive outcome was so improbable I stopped thinking about it. When an occasional bomber passed overhead I'd briefly wonder.

      Later I worked in a school where the duck/cover drill was still practiced. It hadn't been a part of my life for years! An entire urban middle school student population in the school basement on the floor, each curled into a ball with hands protecting neck/head. One fairly small kid, only one, wouldn't comply. He'd joined everyone cooperatively enough, but remained standing. The principal and other adults towered over him. They urged, then cajoled, then insisted. No compliance. I stood back and was privately cheered by the kid's resistance. Eventually, time was up and we returned to regular routine. I don't know what if anything came of it for the kid! :)

        I think I my attitude was rooted in another childhood 'line of thought'. I was pretty young when I decided it was true that all over the earth children, families, pets, … life itself … was like what I found around me. I never could get enthused or suitably frightened about "The Red Menace". Had I known how adults in positions of national level leadership and power actually behaved, I might have been terrified!

    As you die we want you to put a smile on your face that way our coroner won't have to do it for you. Oh and while you wanted some kind of useful information about the latest gas mask of mineral intake you could possible use we "TEPCO" would like you to realize none of that exists. Well you can try and not breathe or ever have children. When your organs start to decay and your thyroid collapses we want you looking spectacular. So put on some makeup and tour the wonderful hillsides of the greatest natural disaster in human history. If you want to file a complaint with the government feel free to do so. Too bad we own them. We own you too…W E A R E T E P C O !

    So easy it is to warn us in advance…smartphones, email alerts, posters on lampposts…we've got it coming at us from all directions this week…Japan, Idaho, TMI in PA, my weather analysis has become so complex I need a Pentagon-funded supercomputer to calculate when my family should stay indoors…

    Can we all now see the HOPELESS FAILURE that has occurred in the Health, Military and Energy Administrations of our Government.

    We NEED to get Jeffersonian about this quick! These people are committing involuntary manslaughter!

    Continuing "Nuclear Lip-Zip" by Mainstream Presidential Candidates Outrages Citizens Across the US Groups Converge on DC to to Focus Congress, NRC, Media on Nuke Dangers
    The Coalition Against Nukes (CAN) Rally for a Nuclear-Free Future, Sept. 20-22 in Washington, DC, intends to break official silence around the critical dangers of nuclear power, nuclear waste storage, weaponry and uranium mining. Endorsed by more than 70 anti-nuclear and environmental organizations, the three-day event will include a Congressional briefing on nuclear issues hosted by Rep. Kucinich's office, an Occupy the NRC demonstration, a Capitol Rally, film showings and speeches by Japanese evacuees.

    Coalition Against Nukes Rally for a Nuclear Free Future
    In just the past week, Japan, Belgium, Quebec and Spain have all announced they will shut down, phase out or not re-license nuclear reactors. Fukushima is an international nuclear wake-up call, but it appears the U.S. prefers playing with Armageddon.

          ABOUT COALITION AGAINST NUKES:
          Coalition Against Nukes (CAN) is a proactive grassroots citizens group focused on nuclear issues that actively networks with elected officials; creates and circulates petitions; organizes peaceful marches, rallies and public events; and disseminates information on why the nuclear power industry (beginning with uranium mining) must be stopped. It was founded by longtime activist Priscilla Star soon after the catastrophic nuclear accident at Fukushima, Japan, which began on March 11, 2011 and continues to this day.

    I've been writing about Japan's nuclear "problem" that is now ours also! http://wp.me/p1wWyW-jl

    The Japanese Gov't. is in bed with the Nuclear industry…

    ATTENTION: Japanese People, NOW almost all your Leaders are in Nuclear Denial* and unless they keep your reactors shut down you may have ONE OR MORE Trillion Dollar Eco-DisasterFukushima's because Fukushima proved that Nature can destroy any land based nuclear reactor, any place anytime 24/7/365!

    A year and a half exactly after Fukushima’s Trillion Dollar Eco-Disaster Japan is now the poster “boy” for Control by the Nuclear Industry and their Utility Gangs:

    This is one of the most well written articles on this Debacle…

    The BOTTOM LINE is that the Japanese people have N☢ say in how their Gov't deals with Nuclear issues! In effect they now live in a Nuclear Police State!

      Fukushima also showed that MOX fuel (fuel enriched with plutonium when spreads by fine particles throughout the atmosphere around the whole world, and eventually into the lungs of all living creatures) can destroy nuclear power plants even without any help from nature.

        Corporations and governments haven't the money to use anything but shoddy construction practices and parts in nuclear power plants. And they use workers who are homeless and without a high school education.

    I have always thought (in USA) we have faced exposure , continually, anyway.Although Fuki is a heavy dose.As many Americans, I cover mine . We fought for indepence for many reasons. Many are not used to nor desire to be spoon-fed info or treatment. To get help will make you a test subject. I hope Fuki isn't a steering mechanism for agenda 21. Take care world….and take back OUR earth from GROSS , prehistoric technology and it's people.
