It was only three months on March 11, 2011 that the world was watching transfixed as a mighty 8.9 Mw earthquake struck Japan, casting a tsunami greater than 47 feet in height upon the northeastern coastline of Japan. The city of Sendai was largely destroyed. Many villages were virtually wiped off the map. Over 18,000 Japanese have officially counted as killed.
One of the main casualties of the 2011 Sendai Earthquake in Japan is that it left Four Nuclear Reactors at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant suffering either from partial or in a complete meltdown. According to recent reports from the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) the most complete of the core damages to any one of the plants was at Reactor One, called the Fukushima Dai-Ichi Reactor which had a complete melt-down and that the water level was below the level of the reactor core, leaving the remains of the reactor core completely exposed.
Also on June 6, 2011, TEPCO recently adjusted the estimates of the total amount of the radioactivity that was released into the atmosphere to be double of their previous estimate given on March, 2011 at 370,000 Becquerels up to 770,000 Becquerels of radioactivity that results in one decay per second.
Leaving these estimates into perspective, what is estimated today of being the amount of radioactivity with the four reactors in Japan is still well below the amount of radioactive release that occurred in the well documented nuclear accident at Chernobyl
The current consensus is that there was a complete meltdown of Number One Nuclear Plant and a partial meltdown of Plants Two and Three of the of three nuclear power reactors at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant. Of biggest concern was how much of the radioactivity that was leaked into the environment would make its way by the air stream over the Pacific Ocean to the United States of America. If it did reach the western borders of the United States along the Washington, Oregon, and California seaboard, what would its affect be upon the local American population? How are did this radiation affect Continental United States.
A small part of that data was soon to be forth coming in an article title, “Is the Dramatic Increase in Baby Deaths in the US a Result of Fukushima Fallout?”
An internal medicine specialist Janette D. Sherman, M.D, and a toxicologist and expert on Chernobyl along with epidemiologist Joseph Mangano, the executive director of the Radiation And Public Health Project in New York, have now put to the pen a sobering evidence based essay on the stunning rise in infant mortality along the America West Coast. As written:
Sherman and Mangano – “U.S. babies are dying at an increased rate. While the United States spends billions on medical care, as of 2006 the US ranked 28th in the world in infant mortality. It was more than twice that of the lowest ranked countries. (DHHS, CDC, National Center for Health Statistics. Health United States 2010, Table 20, p. 131, February 2011.)
The recent CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report indicates that eight cities in the northwest U.S. (Boise ID, Seattle WA, Portland OR, plus the northern California cities of Santa Cruz, Sacramento, San Francisco, San Jose, and Berkeley) reported the following data on deaths among those younger than one year of age:
4 weeks ending March 19, 2011 - 37 deaths (avg. 9.25 per week)
10 weeks ending May 28, 2011 - 125 deaths (avg.12.50 per week)
This amounts to an increase of 35% (the total for the entire U.S. rose about 2.3%), and is statistically significant. Of further significance is that those dates include the four weeks before and the ten weeks after the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant disaster. In 2001 the infant mortality was 6.834 per 1000 live births, increasing to 6.845 in 2007. All years from 2002 to 2007 were higher than the 2001 rate.
Spewing from the Fukushima reactor are radioactive isotopes including those of iodine (I-131), strontium (Sr-90) and cesium (Cs-134 and Cs-137) all of which are taken up in food and water. Iodine is concentrated in the thyroid, Sr-90 in bones and teeth and Cs-134 and Cs-137 in soft tissues, including the heart. The unborn and babies are more vulnerable because the cells are rapidly dividing and the delivered dose is proportionally larger than that delivered to an adult.
Data from Chernobyl, which exploded 25 years ago, clearly shows increased numbers of sick and weak newborns and increased numbers of deaths in the unborn and newborns, especially soon after the meltdown. These occurred in Europe as well as the former Soviet Union. Similar findings are also seen in wildlife living in areas with increased radioactive fallout levels."
That concern may also be extended into the realm of genetic mutations with the exposure to the radioactivity at the Japanese Fukushima reactor accidents. This fear was sparked by the U-tube video that recently went viral of earless rabbit that was found near the site of the Fukushima nuclear accident.
Yet, the Eastern Seaboard of the United States was also affected. According to FOX News, the drinking water in Philadelphia in Pennsylvania has been detected to contain large amounts of Iodine 131. According to New York’s Executive Director of the Radiation and Public Health Project, the death rate amongst infants has taken a 48% jump in Philadelphia since the Japanese Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant catastrophe in March.
Looking retrospectively over the trends of the last six years, the U.S. nationals trends had been trending downward over the last six years. Yet, since the nuclear melt-downs in Japan, there has also been reported a 2.3% increase in infant deaths in the entire United States. Yet, since the Japanese Iodine-131 laced radiation contaminated clouds bombarded the United States from Seattle, Washington to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the death rates for infants in Philadelphia skyrocketed.
These statistics also depict that on the Island of Japan, there showed an average of five infant deaths per week in the five weeks that led up to the Japanese earthquake, tsunami and nuclear power reactors’ meltdown. Then within the two and one-half months after the Japanese nuclear accidents, the rate of infant deaths increased to 7.5 infant deaths per week; a 50% increase. This data is compared to the entire United State’s infant mortality that jumped only 2.3% in the same time period.
To understand why the infant deaths in Philadelphia were so much higher tham many other cities in the nations, it was felt that the researchers found the “smoking gun”. Of the 7 highest drinking water tests completed, 5 of the seven highest drinking water radioactive contaminated tests were done Philadelphia, included the highest level recorded by the EPA.
As of June 5, 2011, it was reported in the Japan Times that;
- The radiation emissions were currently being measured at 4,000 milliseverts per hour, giving the Nuclear power worker the maximum “permissible” dose for a human in four minutes.
- Nearby there are over 40,000 tons of radioactive water that has collected under the nuclear reactors that is filtering through the soil and escaping into the sea or air.
- The fuel rods in the Fukushima nuclear reactors 1, 2, and 3 have all been reported to have melted, collapsed and sunk to the bottom of the reactors.
- Today there is over 100,000 tons of radioactive waste that has collected at the nuclear power plant site.
Random statistics give the sobering assessments across the United States:
- Little Rock, Arkansas radiation in milk is 3 times the EPA Maximum.
- Radiation in Philadelphia Pennsylvania Drinking Water is 73% of federal drinking water standards.
- Los Angeles milk radiation was discovered to be above federal drinking water standards.
- Radiation found in Phoenix Arizona milk was almost at the federal drinking water standard.
- Radioactive Iodine in Boise Idaho rainwater was 130 times above Federal Drinking Water standards. These radioactive isotopes include Radioactive Cesium was 13,66 times above the federal limits for Cesium 134 and Radioactive Cesium 137 was 12 times the federal level.
- The State of Tennessee drinking water was detected with radiation slightly above 1/2 the federal maximum.
- Radioactive Iodine 131 was detected in the drinking water across the entire US in the following states: California, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Tennessee, Montana, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, New Jersey, and Alabama, as well as in Canada.
- The States in which Cesium and Tellurium were found detected were: Boise, Las Vegas, Nome and Dutch Harbor, Honolulu, Kauai and Oahu, Anaheim, Riverside, San Francisco, and San Bernardino, Jacksonville and Orlando, Salt Lake City, Guam, and Saipan.
- The Radioactive Uranium-234, with a half-life of 245,500 years has been found in Hawaii, California, and Washington.
The implications are staggering for the national community that with the trade winds that blow around the world, the implications of nudging the prophetic cycle at the time of the end concerning increasing human fatalities to the point of biblical apocalyptic reality may have arrived.
The Fourth Apocalyptic Horse and Rider Seal of Revelation
Revelation 6:7-8 – “When he broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living being say, ‘Go!’ I looked, and there in front of me was a pallid, sickly-looking horsed. Its rider’s name was Death, and the Sh’ol (Hades) followed behind him. They were given authority to kill one-quarter of the world by war, by famine, by plagues, and with the wild animals of the earth.
The affect upon Planet Earth by literally interpreting the biblical forecast could be staggering. The implication from nuclear contamination of our food and water supply gives the 4th Seal of Revelation a new reality. Yet, the G-d of Israel does express that there is also a new reality under His divine control. He states to the Lost Tribes of Israel that there is a new destiny; prophetically told by the prophets of Israel and Judah 2,500 years ago.
Somehow connecting with a new paradigm of believing the prophets as they stated the “words of the L-rd” instead of projecting what we want to happen in our future and reinterpreting it back into “scripture”, will give us that insight. For those whose family ancestors were literally part of the covenant G-d gave to the Children of Israel at the mount called Sinai, it is time to reconnect with your historic Hebrew-Judaic roots.
