He has been taking measurements from air filters in Tokyo..and finding radiation reading that are more than 1,000 times higher than at peak of fallout from nuclear weapons testing.. 


The government of Japan is focusing on taking away radiation testing meters from residents,

covering up what is really happening and not testing anything, unless they are forced to due to shaming from outside experts coming in and doing testing, and then announcing it in public. 


Fukushima according to the government (if we can believe a word they are saying) is releasing at least 10 to the power of 13 Bequerels PER HOUR of radiation, 24 HOURS A DAY. This is going around the whole world, affecting everyone.

"Addiction to prescription painkillers — which kill thousands of Americans a year — has become a largely unrecognized epidemic, experts say.

This story indicates how silly the current news is largely propoganda; particularly about the H1N1 swine flu. Ok, so 1,000 people died...Is that a reason to panic and have news about it, day after day, for months at a time?
56,000 a year die from seasonal flu and pneumonia, according to the CDC. 
26,000 die each year just from prescription drugs each year. 
Here are some CDC statistics from the CDC website;
Number of deaths for leading causes of death:
  • Heart disease: 631,636
  • Cancer: 559,888
  • Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 137,119
  • Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 124,583
  • Accidents (unintentional injuries): 121,599
  • Diabetes: 72,449
  • Alzheimer's disease: 72,432
  • Influenza and Pneumonia: 56,326
  • Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 45,344
  • Septicemia: 34,234
Creating hysteria is so easy to do if one has access to the news media. Fear sells, so the media eat it up, and the public consumes it. Fear feeds itself, and people start to panic, especially if there is a feeling of 'not enough', and H1n1 might come get me in the middle of the night... 
So how come the news media ignores the million deaths each year from all of the above, while HYPERFOCUSING on just h1n1? Follow the money trail and see how it all fits... 
Who profits from the current hysteria about something that does not even rise to the level of seasonal flu or septicemia?
