Excerpt from 'Deception, Cover-up and Murder in the Nuclear Age'- "Manhattan Project and Army staff, although they were in even greater danger from Trinity's intense radiation at close range, apparently largely escaped harmful exposures. How? They were instructed by their superiors to... follow 'protective measures' such as closing windows, staying indoors, and even breathing through a slice of bread!" more

May 11, 2013 - Strontium-90 levels detected in Japanese food fed to children - Test results presented in a recent report (although it was withheld for 11 months) blogged about by Fukushima Diary may have been for foods really NOT from Fukushima - to make it look like children there are consuming 'safe' foods. Also, the laboratory techniques used in the tests for strontium may have been too unrigorous. A lower 'MDC' would have yielded many more positive detects of strontium-90. Nuclearcrimes.org still has questions about strontium-89 exposures in Japan in 2011, and concerns that Japan is still applying untested assumptions regarding internal emitter levels (sr-90, pu-239) in its food testing (i.e., Japan government's choice to not rigorously test for strontiums and plutoniums in food).

August 23, 2012 - Japan's MEXT issues a followup to its 2011 plutonium survey in prefectures surrounding Fukushima. 62 locations were tested for plutoniums in this latest survey and 41 came up positive for plutonium-239 but only those testing locations that had a positive detect for *plutonium-238* were deemed contaminated 'directly related to the nuclear crisis'. That means MEXT only thinks roughly a dozen locations were contaminated by the disaster. Read more in the Asahi Shimbun. MEXT ignores the notion that uneven rates of volatilization of plutonium due to the use of MOX fuel could have added plutonium-239 individually to downwind areas. Read our analysis on the previous survey and bookmark that page for an update soon. Big question: in Namie, 25 kilometers NW of Fukushima, soil contained 130 and 150 becquerels/square meter of plutonium-241 (in the same location soils measured 2.3 and 3.9 becquerels/square meter of plutonium-238). Why is MEXT ignoring these plutonium 241 values??
August 18, 2012 - California's Pistachios are Radioactive - A Japanese supermarket chain that tested U.S. pistachio nuts for radioactivity found 9.54 becquerels per kilogram of cesium-137. The amount of cesium-134 fell below the detection limit. 98% of all pistachio nuts are grown in California. Learn more in 'The California Radiation Report'(PDF). The pistachio nuts contain about 95 times more cesium-137 than California almonds from 2011 that were tested earlier this year by a different Japanese lab. During the peak fallout years of nuclear weapons testing the American daily intake of cesium-137 reached its all-time-peak, of just 200 picocuries per day.

Earlier Stories in 2012
'When it comes to the truth about radiation and health effects, there are no experts who are honest - not in government, not in science, not anywhere. Yet, people would rather listen to liars than challenge their assumptions about the sources of the so-called truth and disregard the purveyors of actual truth on this topic: the non-creditialed self-taught.' - Andrew Kishner, May 18, 2013
The Stuff of Nuclear Crimes
If the world was a schoolyard, the non-nuclear nations would be the helpless victims and the bullies would be the 'top dog' status, first-world nations who exert their strength via the threat of use of nuclear weapons. Throughout the past 60 years, we have seen these atomic bullies consistently defy global calls for disarmament, make contingencies and subtle or overt threats to use nuclear weapons (even in a 'first strike' manner) on its enemies, including even non-nuclear weapons states, and diligently work behind-the-scenes at manipulating popular opinion by exploiting a cowardly class of co-conspiring scientists who falsified an entire body of science on the health effects of low-level radioactive pollution.
One of the worst tragedies of this gross nuclear deception is the cancer epidemic. It should be obvious to anyone with a brain that our cancer rates are increasing even though the field of medicine keeps improving; it should be obvious that our governments are not telling us the truth about cancer. Yet because people have read too much propaganda, are convinced that the greatest 'destructive' element in their world would and could never be their own government, disbelieve their own intuition and reason, and lack the ability to feel remorse or responsibility for humanity's heinous mass-crimes in the past and the present-day effects of unhealed wounds caused by those acts, this conclusion is practically never reached.
A few hours of research will inform any thinking person that Fukushima and Chernobyl were quite small compared to a previous radioactive bloodbath on Earth. Fact: nuclear powers including the U.S., U.K., Russia, China and France carried out nearly 400 nuclear bomb tests in the atmosphere between 1945 and 1980 and the fallout from these aboveground nuclear explosions incurred a radiation dose across humanity that, per United Nations estimates, was some 30 times greater than that attributed to Chernobyl. It's likely the biological damage from this nuclear fallout was in fact probably more than 100 times greater than Chernobyl's legacy because the United Nations also keeps the truth from us. These nuclear tests were conducted in such an extremely environmentally negligent and careless manner that billions of people across the Earth unwittingly became exposed to first-generation and later 'residual' fallout particles that induced millions of 'excess' cancers from the 1950s to the present.
Cancers were just one of many radiation injuries from the fallout.
Our contention is that these governments knew what was happening to global public health and found that the only way they could legally and morally indemnify themselves from radiation injuries directly inflicted on their citizens and neighbors (in the past and into the future) was to hijack science. Because of the rigorous systems and methods in place that heavily restrict theory and conjecture from entering that sacred place of law and correlation, science commands our deep respect. Yet, the U.S. and its allies brazenly conspired to force into science's hall of knowledge a nugget of mistruth - that radiation injuries didn't and wouldn't stem from their nuclear activities. (We discuss this in Chapter 1 of the free online book on this site.) Governments worked with corrupted scientists and employed such illicit tactics as confiscating damning evidence and falsifying data to make their desires come true. The findings from their 'health studies' on radiation were manipulated so that they could meet the rigors of science and the unfathomable happened: propaganda became truth and truth became a conspiracy theory.
This is the stuff of nuclear crimes. But one doesn't need to have a nuclear arsenal to commit them. A little more than 15 months after 3/11, the Japanese government began the process of restarting its nuclear reactor fleet despite lingering questions about the health impacts from Fukushima. Japan lied and withheld crucial information about the meltdowns and the spread of radiation contamination and also ignored the worst kind of radiation exposures: internal exposures. Why would a non-nuclear state do this? Because, to use Japan as an example, in a word it has become subservient to the 'nuclear first, people second' philosophy of the nuclear elite.
This is what non-nuclear states the world over increasingly have been doing since the nuclear age began. From Canada to Malaysia to South Korea to India, nations are finding it is more advantageous to adopt nuclearism - and even learn how to scoff at and combat low-level radiation concerns of citizens and scientists - than to fight it. As governments easily sell-out, their nonchalance about the worsening quality of their nation's air, water and food supply equates with a gross violation of the most fundamental of human rights - this radiation harms DNA and causes painful radiation-linked maladies that shorten lives. Life is our most fundamental human right. Life is our most basic freedom. And the advance of nuclearism has brought FREEDOM under attack EVERYWHERE. If we don't begin to fight for our most basic freedom, we will not last - not in a long-life for ourselves, our children, or even our species. We must fight for our freedom like we would fight for our life, because this fight for freedom is the fight for life.

Discussions of relatively new happenings and topics that didn't make it in the book are linked to on our writings page.
No one has put forward any other plausible explanation for a spike in infant mortalities (associated with probably over 1 million infant deaths worldwide) during the 1960s - the explanation that it was most likely the result of 'global fallout' makes the most sense.
