Nuclear Panic has caused extra deaths. Nursing home staff ran off, leaving 128 elderly to die.
The Mail from the UK brings you the pictures. Check out their story, above, which underscores the problems of the elderly, who are holed up in shelters in cold conditions, without their prescription meds.

From the International Atomic Energy Agency, here’s the latest on actions at Fukushima Nuclear Power Plants. Daichi reactor 4′ fuel had been unloaded.
“Site radiation doses have been decreasing since March 16. Radiation dose rates are fluctuating based on some of the relief operations, such as adding cooling water to the used fuel pools. Recent readings at the plant boundary are about 2 millirem per hour. Radiation dose rates at reactor 3 range between 2,500 and 5,000 millirem per hour.”
Learn about background radiation, and what have been considered acceptable occupational levels of radiation (varies with occupation). This info comes fom the MIT News, but it’s not news.
Federal occupational standards allowed 5000 millirems per year for those working with radioactive sources. That which is allowed for astronauts is much higher : 25000 milliremgs (cosmic radiation) per space shuttle mission.

Bis Sis, who caused radiation exposure with her full body scanners, is now needlessly checking for radiation from Japan.
