    She’s so used to everyone covering up her crimes, she just doesn’t see the need to hide ‘em.

    PS: The video at the link seems to show Hillary’s right eye misaligned with her left. But, it’s dark so maybe I’m wrong.

    A worker’s clothing was contaminated with radioactive waste. It was on Drudge for about 2 days -gone now.
    The feds will not allow federally funded labs to report on releases etc. so we won’t know. I did read that they were planning to place an industrial tarp over the cave in site.

    Define “broadly.” The industry has set limits of exposure per year and defends itself against medical claims that workers file by counter claiming that there’s a safe limit.

    How about an article from the National Library of Medicine?

    Beryllium’s Public Relations Problem: Protecting Workers
    “n a dramatic announcement on a national television news magazine in April 2000, Bill Richardson, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), acknowledged that his agency collaborated with the beryllium industry to defeat a 1975 attempt by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to reduce workers’ exposure to beryllium, a collaboration that was brought to public attention in a 1999 investigation by Toledo Blade reporter Sam Roe.1 “Priority one was production of our nuclear weapons,” Richardson stated. “[The] last priority was the safety and health of the workers that build these weapons.”2”

    Well Fukushima is over there dumping it’s three nuclear cores into the atmosphere and ocean right now and Chernobyl is killing people today just as it was decades ago, explosions/fires in underground nuclear waste facilities - it seems like it’s not under control, right. So it seems like he was correct. The fight over the LNT theory is largely waged because nuclear power plants are legally allowed to routinely “off-gas” radioactive gas. So if LNT is acknowledged as bad, then nuclear power plants are harming human health.

    Here’s one of the findings that managed to make it to the public

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-3116620/Nuclear-power-station-cancer-warning-Breast-cancer-rates-FIVE-TIMES-higher-Welsh-plant-twice-high-Essex-Somerset-sites-experts-reveal.html

    Here’s a quote:
    “Studies looked at rates of various cancers in people living close to Trawsfynydd, Bradwell and Hinkley Point power stations
    At the Welsh plant breast cancer rates were five times higher than expected
    At Bradwell and Hinkley Point they were twice as high as UK average
    Researchers warned their ‘very clear’ findings are ‘remarkable’ “

    They are remarkable for having seen the light of day. Most such studies are suppressed long before that.

    You might try the ones scientifically documenting his medical studies. I’m not referencing whatever political views he espoused - I am referring to the fact that he did Oppenheim a favor in producing sufficient supplies of Plutonium on short notice, that he helped discover plutonium and the government agency in charge of managing nuclear materials back then asked Gofman to apply his medical prowess (he was a respected doctor) to the study of the biological effects of radiation on human health. He did so and he found something they hadn’t anticipated - it was harmful. He explained that it was impossible to produce the kind of perfection needed to safely contain radioactive material and they stripped him and his colleagues of their labs and equipment and they denigrate him to this day.
    His credentials for nuclear research and medicine were and still are impeccable - that’s why he had the access he had, why they asked him to be the one to conduct the research. And he said in his book that while it was true his knowledge of radiation and medicine helped him argue more effectively against the nuke lobby, everyone had access to sufficient information to tell them that radiation was harmful and the the nuke lobby would never respond to reason because they like the power they have and they will never give it up.

    Actually scientists rely upon grant money and the government can and has stripped scientists of funding if they provide research that exposes radiation effects on human health. That’s why there are little if any legitimate scientific studies of the ways in which air travel (and passengers attendant exposure to radiation) impacts human health. What the government doesn’t want studied, the government doesn’t fund. It’s why no lab in Oregon, Washington, and California would analyze civilian collected samples of plants/soil for radiation following Fukushima - they don’t want to lose their federal funding. Berkely Univ. initially published reports showing they detected radioactive deposits (downwind from Fukushima) in neighboring land and milk cows feeding there, but that sure was shut down fast - within a few months, all milk and foliage samples were clean clean clean! It’s a miracle, I tell you!

    If the body’s immune system is overburdened, the body has increased difficulty/failure in it’s ability to repair cellular damage caused by radiation.

    Wow! You REALLY know nothing about the BEIR nor the New York Academy of Sciences and yet it’s all available on the web.

    Here’s the “same old guys going to the same old meetings on the same old subjects while staying in nice hotels and enjoying fancy meals “

    And here’s their publications:

    http://www.nyas.org/Publications/Annals/Default.aspx

    Classic nuke apologist strategy - smear anyone with data that shows the truth. John Goffman (”The Father Of Plutonium) led an honorable life, contributed to science nobly and is ridiculed as “crazy” by the nuke industry because his medical studies and radiological expertise revealed that radiation is harmful to human health.

    You have to remember that the nuke industry is married to the government and when people were citing data from Hiroshima proving LNT, “someone” gained authority to scramble the cohorts (exposures) and their actual position in the data permanently erased. No scientific mind did that.

    Read John Goffman for a thorough discussion of how political pressure is brought to bear upon the unpleasant truth behind radiation from the point of it’s discovery - he was there. Goffman was the “Father of Plutonium”. He helped discover it and was a medical doctor who studied cancer himself. He details how data is scrambled to serve the nuke lobby and how there is nothing the nuke industry won’t do to silence critics.
    But if you read the data BEFORE someone responds by scrubbing it, read your links and the BEIRS, and international studies and reports (e.g., Ukraine) like “The Consequences of Chernobyl” by The Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences
    Alexey V. YABLOKOV
    Vassily B. NESTERENKO
    Alexey V. NESTERENKO
    coNsultiNG editor Janette d. sherman-Nevinger
    VOLUME 1181

    then you will understand that it isn’t as safe as nuke industry apologists say it is.
    Oh you may have trouble finding that last report I mentioned though. Last time I looked for that report, it was extremely hard to find compared with its original availability. People kept citing it and we can’t have that, can we? Apparently the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences is, after all, susceptible to political pressure.

    Read the BEIR posts down thread for solid data about the biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation. That’s most comprehensive. Responses to exposures vary and I think I recall that leukemia was most common in the Taiwan exposure. I think it counts as a “negative” effect if radiation exposure causes cancers (illness, suffering, surgery), leukemia and all those other illnesses. Radiation exposure also suppresses immune system function so some deaths are falsely attributed to diseases that would otherwise be survivable.
    I forget sometimes that nuke apologists don’t care that radiation exposure damages quality of life and often does it for generations. Those with radiation related illnesses can battle exhausting illnesses their entire lives and then watch their offspring battle it and to nuke apologists -
    that’s nothing. Absolutely nothing. In the Ukraine right now are the generations following Chernobyl and they live, ironically, half-lives filled with medical treatments or the unanswered need for treatments. What’s a baby shower like over there when you fear what genetic damage your children will face if exposure to radiation does not result in spontaneous abortion, the illnesses, the lost childhood. Shortly after Chernobyl, “most of the children in the village will too ill to play.” What it like to live like that? Nuke-o-philes don’t care. Personally, I think it’s important that radiation damage caused and is causing (Ukraine) significant dementia to people “too young” to have it - but, hey....they did’t die, right?

    They are so powerful that they can break muzzles. I watched a video of a pitt bull raging in a fenced yard, he wiped the muzzle aside in preparation to attack. Pitts have been reported to break through glass doors, windows and chew through chain link because once on the hunt/attack mode, they don’t stop. That’s why enthusiasts like them????????

    I’m sorry you went through that. Among the dead and the maimed, there aren’t statistics that adequately capture the emotionaal pain, trauma and loss caused by pitt bulls. Nightmares, heart break, phobias etc. are invisible to those who lobby on behalf of these beasts. One horrific account of a child undergoing massive reparative surgery following a pitt bull attack noted that the large surgical team “held it together” for the long hours of surgery. But after the child was wheeled away in bandages, they team members drew the surgery bay curtain closed and cried. What about their trauma? The police and other first responders? PItt bull advocates don’t have to deal with the “mess” these animals make.

    The problem is that genetics and immune system functioning, age, and sex all influence the ability for that repair mechanism to work. Children are most sensitive because they are growing and so much of their cells are in the process of DNA replication/cell division. (true for plants/animals as well - the cells undergoing division/replication are most prone to damage). The elderly are next - their body’s ability to heal is diminished by age. Those who have other health issues are more prone to dying of those issues because their body is also attempting to repair radiation damage. Women are twice as sensitive than are men. The BEIR report is the most comprehensive real-world science we have and it supports LNT.

    The didn’t have low limits. They had life damaging high limits. Residents were forced to live in areas that doomed their entire families to suffer shorter, diseased filled lives. The Soviets gave some of them Geiger counters to help them but the things were going off when they touched laundry, dishes, food etc. and it was just a continual reminder that they were living in contaminated zones. The Soviets had no place to put those people. WHen the Russians toured Fukushima, they were appalled to learn that the Japanese threshold was much higher. Takes a lot to shock a former Soviet, no?

    The BEIR reports are based on evidence:
    “Like previous BEIR reports addressing low-LET (linear energy transfer) radiation, risk models are based primarily from data on Japanese atomic bomb survivors. However, the vast literature on both medically exposed persons and nuclear workers exposed at relatively low doses has been reviewed to evaluate whether findings from these studies are compatible with A-bomb survivor-based models. In many cases, results of fitting models similar to those in this chapter have been published”

    In recent years, several national and international organizations have developed models for estimating cancer risk from exposure to low levels of low-LET ionizing radiation. These include the work of the BEIR V committee (NRC 1990), the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP 1991), the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP 1993), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA 1994, 1999), the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR 2000b), and the National Institutes of Health (NIH 2003). The approaches used in these past assessments are described in Annex 12A.

    There’s more info about the extensive data used to create the report summary you read.

    “BEIR VII develops the most up-to-date and comprehensive risk estimates for cancer and other
    health effects from exposure to low-level ionizing radiation. It is among the first reports of its kind to
    include detailed estimates for cancer incidence in addition to cancer mortality. In general, BEIR VII supports
    previously reported risk estimates for cancer and leukemia, but the availability of new and more
    extensive data have strengthened confidence in these estimates. A comprehensive review of available biological
    and biophysical data supports a “linear-no-threshold” (LNT) risk model—that the risk of cancer
    proceeds in a linear fashion at lower doses without a threshold and that the smallest dose has the potential
    to cause a small increase in risk to humans”
