How much is too much?
Sources of Anthropogenic Radionuclides in the Environment: A Review

(please note)  June 2010

We always ask what have we done because we don't know what we are doing.

A litle basic reminder..for those not introduced yet to the interconnectedness of everything concept..like those who allowed themselfes to be programmed by ayn rand's lobbying for psychopatisme books or by those that did..and then spread the desease themselfes..

You Are A Nuclear Downwinder-Down current: No Place to Run, No Place to Hide

Above Ground Nuclear Weapons Tests, aquifer, contaminated aquifers, downhill, downwinder, fallout, Fukushima, Japan, nuclear accident, nuclear accidents, nuclear bomb, nuclear bombs, nuclear incineration, nuclear leaks, nuclear reactors, nuclear waste, ocean currents, prevailing winds, radioactive elements, Radionuclides

As inhabitants of the earth,
we are all downwind to fallout from nuclear accidents, and nuclear bombs.
We are all down ocean current to leaks from nuclear accidents, and nuclear waste.
We are all downwind and down current from leaks into air and water legally allowed during the routine operations of nuclear reactors and other nuclear facilities, along with any illegal emissions.

On a more local level you may be downwind, downhill, downstream, or share an aquifer with radioactive elements from the above. These elements bio-accumulate, some staying with you for a short time, others for a lifetime. However, in a world increasingly polluted by radionuclides, how long it stays in the body will be irrelevant, because it will reach steady-state in the body. Furthermore, the external environment will be increasingly contaminated. So, the exposure will be both internal and external.

If radionuclides are in all of the food and water in the world, of course you will ingest them. In fact, they are already there. We don’t need higher amounts. All of the Plutonium from Chernobyl, the Above Ground Nuclear Weapons Tests, etc. is still in the environment, except that which has become Americium, which is still there. Don’t be fooled by the “experts”, who only speak of the shorter-lived and less dangerous radionuclides.

And, how much you ingest depends on if the nuclear industry is allowed to continue to operate, and if nuclear waste is contained properly in containers and supervised or if, as currently is the case, the policy is dump and abandon.

Also, there is the issue of incineration of nuclear waste and how much radiation is legally (or illegally) emitted.

You may be surprised what you are immediately downwind and downstream to….You may want to take a look…Or maybe not…

Radiation-Induced Cerebro-Ophthalmic Effects in Humans


Exposure to ionizing radiation (IR) could affect the human brain and eyes leading to both cognitive and visual impairments. The aim of this paper was to review and analyze the current literature, and to comment on the ensuing findings in the light of our personal contributions in this field. The review was carried out according to the PRISMA guidelines by searching PubMed, Scopus, Embase, PsycINFO and Google Scholar English papers published from January 2000 to January 2020. The results showed that prenatally or childhood-exposed individuals are a particular target group with a higher risk for possible radiation effects and neurodegenerative diseases. In adulthood and medical/interventional radiologists, the most frequent IR-induced ophthalmic effects include cataracts, glaucoma, optic neuropathy, retinopathy and angiopathy, sometimes associated with specific neurocognitive deficits. According to available information that eye alterations may induce or may be associated with brain dysfunctions and vice versa, we propose to label this relationship “eye-brain axis”, as well as to deepen the diagnosis of eye pathologies as early and easily obtainable markers of possible low dose IR-induced brain damage.


Ya, for posterity...
We always ask what have we done because we don't know what we are doing.
