My mother was with me in Germany and died of cancer 6 years after Chernobyl and did not eat

processed foods, smoke, drink, or have any lifestyle factors that were conducive to cancer. It

I also aggressively detoxed with clay and other herbs and she did not.

What I did then, is what I'm doing now.

* Protect the Thyroid
* Detox specifically for heavy metals
* Detox on a regular basis as my body requires
* Support a robust immune system
* Eat Super Foods and Antioxidants daily.

If you are detoxing with clay, be sure to drink TONS of water, and its not a bad idea to have

some fiber like psyllium or ground flaxseed.... its just as important to keep the system going as

it is to absorb the toxins
into the clay. I've seen folks do a 10 oz glass of filtered water with the powdered clay and

fiber together. Then chase with another 10 oz of water. Some put the diatomacious earth in there

too. Start with small amounts and work your way up. Each person is different, and allow for your

body to adapt to what you are giving it.

Sometimes cayenne capsules, along with probiotics are taken with the water chaser to the clay.

Cayenne increases peristalsis (movement) and circulation.... Probiotics help re-establish the

positive bacteria in the digestive tract.

Its also a good idea to take some mineral suppliments... Because prolongued use of clays can create

a deficit in some other things... If you notice heart palpitations, try adding magnesium. Or stop

the clay. A suggestion for including magnesium is to have some fresh lemon tea.
That is, squeeze 1 lemon, hot water, add trace minerals. If you want, add some honey or xylitol

or liquid stevia. Sugar is not so good for the immune system, so start avoiding it.... its not

In the last month we have received 22 vehicle air filters from safecasters. These came from

vehicles used primarily in Fukushima City, Tokyo, and Iwaki. The Fukushima City filters had

total radiation levels that averaged about 2.0 uSv/hour, while the Tokyo filters averaged 0.2

uSv/hour. The filters are analyzed by gamma spectrometry. We found cesium-134, cesium-137,

cobalt-60, and uranium and its decay products in the dusts trapped on these filters. These dusts

contain enough breathable radioactive particles that people need to use care in removing and

handling used car filters from Northeastern Japan. Our group is also looking to test school yard

One of the first tongue cancer symptoms to be noticed is a white / red patch on the

tongue. The patch may be situated anywhere on the tongue. Occasionally, some people notice a

white / red spot on the tongue. The spot is firm and has raised edges. With time, the patch grows

in size and becomes firmer and harder.

%u2022 The central portion of the patch is relatively soft and bleeds easily. Bleeding occurs when

pressure is exerted over the cancer spots, during chewing, drinking or swallowing, and the spots

break open. The cancer spot is extremely tender and can not endure pressure of any kind, thus

resulting in easy bleeding. Unexplained bleeding is an important indication and tongue cancer


%u2022 Pain while chewing and / or swallowing are other common manifesting tongue cancer symptoms.

%u2022 Some individuals also develop an ulcer or a sore on the tongue, or within the oral cavity,

which shows no signs of resolving or subsiding.

%u2022 A continual sore throat is a major tongue cancer symptom.

%u2022 Numbness in the tongue and mouth occur commonly.

%u2022 Change in voice, rigid tongue with reduced movements, and bad breath are other associated

tongue cancer symptoms. The patient also complains of difficulty in opening the mouth and the

presence of a mass in the neck.

%u2022 Occasionally, some people even complain of ear pain.

%u2022 A lump at the back of the throat, enlarged neck lymph glands, unexplained and excessive weight

loss, and an alteration in the way the dentures normally used to fit inside the mouth are

frequently seen tongue cancer symptoms.

In case you notice or experience any of these clinical features, you must visit your doctor /

health care professional immediately. Never neglect these symptoms. Tongue cancer ought to be

taken seriously, since the tumor tends to spread rapidly to the gums, jaws and throat.

The effective and successful management of tongue cancer needs sufficient knowledge about the

symptoms of the disease, and an early diagnosis of the condition. Some symptoms of carcinoma

tongue are quite prominent, whereas some are hard to detect. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment

is the only way to limit its progress.

In terms of the EPA switching over to the FDA's Derived Intervention Level (DIL)

1) A great explanation is in this post: Japan Nuclear Radiation In San Francisco Milk Exceeds

Infant Dose In Less Than 3 Gallons
2) Realize that DIL is not a level of safety... It is a level so high that a single dose will

cause severe health effects. I am actually in the process of writing a post about a local EPA

official who didn't get the Federal memo that the EPA was covering this up by using the FDA level

and admitted to a local newspaper that doses above 3 pCi/L are harmful.

The main thing to keep in mind is the EPA safety level is 3 pCi/L under which it can not be

statistically proven there are health effects. It is set to allow a total radiation dose of 4

millirems per year which equates to 1 death from cancer per million.

Using the FDA's derived intervention level allows for cancer in 1 out of 2,200 people and DEATH

FROM CANCER IN 1 OUT OF4,400. By no means is this a "safe" level and the FDA website even says


Also, don't be fooled by comparisons to background radiation or dosages from x-ray, ct-scans or

airline flights. There are entirely different than the dose you receive from internal emitters.

Internal emitting radiation is much more dangerous by a factor of a trillion.

Even with the external emitting radiation, here are some statistic that might wake you up, pulled

from the American Cancer Society, NJDEP and Health Physics Society...

There are a few limitations to what RO Units will do. So for example, deuterium and tritium, the

I am not discounting your concern here but I don't see how buying pre-Fukushima foods is a

plausible long-term solution or even an option for many of us. CS-137 has a half life of 30


Unless you wrap your entire house in plastic, filter your air and water supply, have a walk- in

freezer or a green house for the next 30 years and never leave you are bound to be exposed

somehow (everyone on earth has been exposed to Chernobyl whether through inhalation or

ingestion). I don't see how posting a "safe list" of pre-Fukushima foods will do anything other

than spark panic-buying.

The entire west coast did NOT suffer the same levels of radiation. In fact intercontinental US

milk supply suffered higher exposures. Look at the EPA website's RadNet data. Current and past

tests show no radio nucleotides in Oregon or Seattle/Tacoma area milk. Intercontinental US states

show much higher concentrations: Arkansas, Missouri, and Tennessee have more, even triple the

amounts. Vermont milk actually tested positive for CS-137 on one occasion. Though I am unclear

why it did not show up again because of it's long half life. Maybe that cow was pulled from


I am so disappointed in the human response here: shun the affected? Every man for himself? I am

atrocities like nuclear power, nanotechnology, biowarfare. These are just awful choices being

made in the name of profit and we can and must do better for ourselves and our children.

Otherwise we are silently assenting to extinct ourselves and make the planet uninhabitable for

i. I am not suggesting pre-Fukushima foods as a long term solution, nor that it solves anything,

nor that it absolves anyone from fighting against unsafe sources of power, nor anything else.

Essentially, I'm being pragmatic. I can't do much about cesium. However, from what I've heard, it

isn't taken up by children's bodies as quickly or in as large quantities as the iodine, which is

immediately sucked in and stored in the thyroid for about 100 days.

I-131, with a half life of 8 days, is almost completely gone in 81 days. I'm figuring doing this

till 81 days past the dates when this site shows MDA levels, for as many foods as I'm able to

control. That's not everything, and it may not be enough, but it's the best I can do.

I'm not promoting this, or what I'm doing, as a plan for anyone. Just being open in case it's

helpful to people trying to avoid the worst of it, especially for

Helpful Quote from Vesica.org

The Entirety of the Northern Hemisphere around the world is affected by fallout, as well as the

Pacific Ocean.

Most Serious: Japan, Pacific Ocean, and Pacific Rim States

Most Contaminated food areas of North America (based on fallout wind spread patterns charted by

European scientific research agencies) in order of likely intensity of contamination, starting

with the most contaminated:

Entire Pacific Coast (note that much of the produce in North America comes from this region,

especially California)
Northern U.S. States close to Canada, and Canadian areas close to the U.S. (including Toronto

Eastern States
Central States of the U.S., and Far Northern areas of Canada


The majority of contamination is in the northern hemisphere and the Pacific Ocean region. Most of

the Southern Hemisphere has little to no fallout (the exception is the Southern Hemisphere in the

Pacific; Australia for example is finding radioactive fish in the ocean, so although they may not

get much atmospheric fallout they are affected by the massive contamination of the Pacific


Also note that radioactive contamination is being found on non-food products being imported from


Safest Areas of Origin for food products:
Central America (avoid items from the Pacific Coast area of Mexico)
South America

Europe is also far less contaminated that North America, although it is also experiencing

significant fallout; so it is a better source for products than North America, however not as

good as Southern Hemisphere sources. (However some South American produce may contain high levels

of pesticides not allowed to be used in the U.S. or Canada.)


Most affected:

All Ocean-Derived Products from the Pacific Ocean: the Fukushima accident dumped millions of

times the normal background levels of radiation into the Pacific, where it is affecting the

entire ocean (most toxic near Japan and bordering areas, but now reaching to the US West Coast:

debris from the Tsunami in Japan is also expected to start washing up on the West Coast in the

near future.) There are already reports of Pacific Fish showing radioactive contamination.
This indicates a need to be cautious regarding:
All Pacific Ocean Fish
Sea Salt or Ocean Minerals derived from the Pacific
All Pacific Seaweed and Sea Vegetables (order Atlantic Ocean seaweed at

http://www.theseaweedman.com )

Milk and all Dairy Products (butter, cheese etc.) from all animals: Cows, Goats, and Sheep (Dairy

products have the most intense immediate absorption of radiation from fallout). Radioactive

contamination of milk has been found throughout the United States, especially on the West Coast.

Any plant with a large surface area exposed to the air while growing: The most intense radiation

absorption in plants is through rain falling directly on the leaves of the plant, where it is

directly absorbed. Rainwater absorbed through the earth into the plant is already of much lower

radiation intensity due to the filtering affect of the soil.
All broad leaf plants and plants with large surface areas grown in the open air (rather than in

greenhouses) are the most contaminated, for instance Salad Greens, Spinach, Cabbage etc.

Contaminated crops in California (carrying radioactive iodine and cesium) have already been

confirmed by UC Berkeley.
[Carrots and other root vegetables are less contaminated due to growing underground.]

Water from Rainwater or Open Lake type catchments: instead drink bottled water, or water from

underground wells or other underground sources (radiation is greatly reduced when the particles

have to travel through the ground.)

Chernobyl has provided a LOT of data on what is safer and what isn't. Specific plant species

uptakes of various isotopes are known, as are techniques to decrease uptake. The same is true of

different animal species. For instance, goats uptake more than cows.

Going forward, provided there isn't another major release of isotopes, the problem will be

biological concentration as plants, then animals, selectively take chemicals into their cells.

Again, areas in Europe have BEEN having a much greater problem than we currently do. We just

didn't have it staring us in the face, so most of us aren't educated on the subject. Yet.

Personally, I'm salting my food with 'lite' salt for the potassium content and taking a calcium

supplement. If supplementation works to cut isotope uptake for plants, milk cows, and meat

animals, it ought to help me too.

I'm ALSO going to be paying close attention to the voting history of every candidate in every

election. No one who supports nuclear power will EVER get my vote. We have to shut the technology

down. No one should be allowed to contaminate the entire planet with something that can destroy

DNA for generations.--http://www.nuc.berkeley.


Birdseye frozen vegetables follow the following convention for their packing dates:

Only the first 5 digits of the code are needed:


Where Y = year, 0=2010, 1=2011
Where PP = plant (don't care)
Where M = month, 1-9,O,N,D Where 1 is January and D is December
Where D = Day, A-Z,1,2,3,4,5 Where A is 1 and 5 is 31

Organic Valley was one of the few companies to answer every request I made, quickly and in a

friendly way. Organic Prairie is the same company and were equally, delightfully helpful.

Hain was difficult - they would give me shelf life but not say where anything was from (my Canola

Oil says it could be made in US, Switzerland or Argentina).

Trader Joes would only tell me that at a southern California store the organic milk would be from

southern California. The local store was willing to call suppliers but they came back with


I loved how proud Smart Chicken was to tell me ALL their chickens are from Nebraska.

I have learned a lot from doing this, including how fast our food gets processed (I was somewhat

seaweed or Japanese products. I just talked about freshness and shelf life.

Some other helpful food info...

We're drinking SACO mix n drink powdered milk from Costco packed before March 11th. I have to say

the stuff tastes 99% like real milk. I was pleasantly surprised. It expires in Jan 2013, so we're

stocking up on that.

Organic Valley was very helpful when I called about their milk. For this reason, I will drink it

again if the levels dissapear. Other milk companies acted more annoyed when we called.

Tillamook has cheeses aged and packed pre-Fukushima. Their sharp cheddar is aged 9 months so

we're stocking up on that too. The label says clearly "aged 9 months" and the company verified it

by phone.

We're drinking reverse osmosis water from Costco (kirkland signature drinking water). Costco

confirmed it is reverse osmosis.

they were pleasant and helpful.--http://www.nuc.berkeley.edu/

Sad, but true. During a radionuclide storm (nuclear fallout event), goats, sheep and deer

bioconcentrate radionuclides more efficiently than cattle.

This is due to the preferred (goat, sheep & deer) diet, which consists of broadleaf weeds

(forbs). The large surface area of forb leaves, catch more radioactive dust and black rain than

the grasses.

Forbs generally absorb the radionuclides from dust and rain more effectively than the grasses.

Thus dairy products from sheep, goats and raindeer are more dangerous during nuclear fallout

events than cow'w milk.

"U.S. daily press reports have indicated that radioactive strontium 90 from the fallout of

thermonuclear explosions is nothing to worry about. Japanese scientists do not agree. On April 8

scientists working under Japan's Atomic Energy Commission will present a report to the United

Nations Radiation Committee. Its gist: strontium 90 should be studied carefully, and much more

must be known about it before it can be written off as harmless to the human


In their small sample, however, the researchers found a good deal of variation between

individuals. The rapidly growing bones of young children averaged three to four times as much

strontium 90 as the bones of adults. Even certain adults had ten times more than others. One

sample of adult shinbone from Vancouver, B.C. had 75 times as much as the average.

The B.C. Centre for Disease Control is stressing that radiation originating from an

earthquake-stricken nuclear power plant in Japan poses "no health risk" to people in British


In a Monday (March 21) update on its website, the centre confirmed that it had been told by

Health Canada that "minute" amounts of radiation from the Fukushima Daiichi plant were detected

by monitoring stations in the province.

"The amounts of radiation from Japan detected over the past few days in BC measure 0.0000005

millisieverts, which is significantly less than those coming from other sources," Monday's update


"Scientists measure exposure to ionizing radiation using a unit of measurement called a sievert.

The average Canadian is exposed to between 2 and 3 millisieverts of radiation annually from

background radiation."

Today (March 22), the centre said in an update: "Health Canada anticipates that the quantity of

radiation reaching Canada, would be negligible and not pose a health risk to Canadians. We are

expecting very slight increases in radiation, smaller than the normal day to day fluctuations

until a week after the reactors are stabilized."

analysing a field recording and isolate the unique features of a sound - e.g. by looking beyond

frequency filters to spectral features like noisiness, brightness and envelope features, you

could then run two analyzer~ objects - one each for L & R - and then try to filter out whatever

There are three kinds of radioactive material: there are gamma rays: initially when the nuclear

reactors blew they emitted large clouds of xenon and krypton gases. Those are noble gases. They

don't react with your skin or anything but they emit gamma rays. So the readings you saw with

people walking around with the Geiger counters were from essentially being in a cloud of gamma

rays hitting them from the outside. And that's significant but it is also dispersed over your

entire body. To my mind, the bigger problem, are the two ways that radioactive material decays

and those are called beta particles and alpha particles. They don't travel as far but they have

an enormous amount more energy than a gamma ray. So if they lie on your skin, you are just fine.

You can wash it off and life goes on. The problem is if they get inside they can selectively go

to an organ and bombard a very small piece of tissue with a lot of exposure and potentially cause

a cancer and that is what we call a hot particle.

All of these particles are radioactive. But when you talk about contamination it means almost

always that one of these particles gets attached to an organ and begins to bombard that

Fuel fleas--https://secure.wikimedia.org/wi kipedia/en/wiki/Fuel_fleas

Where is the estimate of inhaling 10 particles per day? I didn't hear it in part 1... And I'm

also not sure why it matters how many particles are inhaled versus the radioactivity of those

particles (i.e., decays per second).

I should point out that we have a long, consistent set of measurements of radioactive fission

products in our air filter measurements. And even on our single highest spike in air

concentration (I-131, 4.3E-6 Bq/L, on 3/23-24), I estimate that one would only breathe in about

0.03 radioactive decays per day, or one every 35 days [see correction in comment].

Also, it turns out that about 50% of our exposure from natural radioactive sources is from the

inhalation of radioactive particles. This is primarily due to the decay daughters of Radon-222,

which create "hot particles" of radioactive Lead, Bismuth, and Polonium in the air.

I posted this table earlier in the week on another thread, but it's worth repeating here. Here's

a summary of the total breakdown of background exposure from UNSCEAR 2000 Report Vol. I, Annex B:

Exposures from natural radiation sources, primarily Table 31: Average worldwide exposure to

natural radiation sources:

Source Average annual effective dose (microSieverts) Percent
Total cosmic and cosmogenic 390 16.3%
External terrestrial radiation Outdoors 70 2.9%
Indoors 410 17.1%
Inhalation exposure Uranium and thorium series 6 0.3%
Radon-222 1,150 47.9%
Radon-220 100 4.2%
Total inhalation exposure 1,260 52.5%
Ingestion exposure Potassium-40 170 7.1%
Uranium and thorium series 120 5.0%
Total ingestion exposure 290 12.1%
Total 2,400 100.0%--http://www.nuc.berkeley.edu/no de/4459

I just realized that I made a mistake in that earlier post when I estimated the number of I-131

decays one would be breathing per day at the peak of our measurements (I have since struck out

the error).

In order to do a proper estimate, one needs to divide up the total volume someone breathes in a

day into individual breaths. One needs to use the number of liters per breath, the duration of

each breath, and the total number of breaths per day. I used these average numbers:
Duration of breath: 15 per minute
Number of breaths per day: 22,000 per day
Number of liters breathed per day: 6600 L/day
Liters per breath: 0.30 L

Using 4.3E-6 Bq/L, then the number of decays of I-131 breathed per day would have been 0.11 per

day, or 1 every 9 days.--http://www.nuc.berkeley.edu/nod e/4459

Hi BC, I think your point is right on - that exposure to the fission products would not occur

just from decays while they are in the air in our lungs, but what they are attached to matters,

since they may build up in the lungs. The radioactive isotopes are probably attached to small

aerosol particles, but not much is known about this yet.

My earlier estimate is limited since it doesn't account for buildup, but at least it can be

directly compared to the radon estimate below. The radon daughters also attach to small air

particles, so they probably exhibit the same behavior as fission products from Japan in terms of

getting stuck inside our lungs. One huge difference is that some of the radon daughters are alpha

emitters, so the actual dose (not just the decay rate) will be much much larger from the radon

progenies than the dose from fission products, which are beta/gamma emitters. So comparing the

fission product estimate to the radon estimate at least gives some sense of the scale between the


This potential for lung buildup is taken into account when calculating inhalation exposure, as we

do in our dose conversions - it is not done using my simple estimate above. We use standard

inhalation dose conversions which account for this.

Mark [BRAWM Team Member]--http://www.nuc.berkeley.edu/n ode/4459

BC was guessing this since often the three isotopes have roughly similar activities (decays per

second). On our peak day for air, there were five isotopes measured:

I-131: 4.3E-6 Bq/L
Cs-134: 1.1E-6 Bq/L
Cs-137: 1.2E-6 Bq/L
I-132: 1.1E-6 Bq/L
Te-132: 0.88E-6 Bq/L

So the others would approximately double the total number of "decays per second."

Of course, the total dose from all of these is the more important number - not all decays are

equal in this sense. This is quantified in terms of airplane flights in our table.

Among the residents of Belarus, the Russian Federation and Ukraine, there had been up to the year

2005 more than 6,000 cases of thyroid cancer reported in children and adolescents who were

exposed at the time of the accident, and more cases can be expected during the next decades.

Notwithstanding the influence of enhanced screening regimes, many of those cancers were most

likely caused by radiation exposures shortly after the accident. Apart from this increase, there

is no evidence of a major public health impact attributable to radiation exposure two decades

after the accident. There is no scientific evidence of increases in overall cancer incidence or

mortality rates or in rates of non-malignant disorders that could be related to radiation

exposure. The incidence of leukaemia in the general population, one of the main concerns owing to

the shorter time expected between exposure and its occurrence compared with solid cancers, does

not appear to be elevated. Although those most highly exposed individuals are at an increased

risk of radiation-associated effects, the great majority of the population is not likely to

experience serious health consequences as a result of radiation from the Chernobyl accident. Many

other health problems have been noted in the populations that are not related to radiation

exposure.--http://www.nuc.berkeley.edu /node/4459

An old paper, suggesting 1/2000 chance of lung cancer per hot particle induced lesion. No idea

how many hot particles statistically must be inhaled on average for a lesion to occur... but then

I didn't read the whole paper.

You assist an evil system most effectively by obeying its orders and decrees.
An evil system never deserves such allegiance.
Allegiance to it means partaking of the evil.
A good person will resist an evil system with his or her whole soul.

It is good to see ourselves as others see us. Try as we may, we are never
able to know ourselves fully as we are, especially the evil side of us.
This we can do only if we are not angry with our critics but will take in good
heart whatever they might have to say.

How to reset Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)--http://support.microsoft.com /kb/299357

Use a manual method to reset TCP/IP
Note This section is intended for advanced computer users. If you are not comfortable with

advanced troubleshooting, ask someone for help or contact Support. For information about how to

contact Support, see the Microsoft Help and Support contact information Web site:
The reset command is available in the IP context of the NetShell utility. Follow these steps to

use the reset command to reset TCP/IP manually:

To open a command prompt, click Start and then click Run. Copy and paste (or type) the

following command in the Open box and then press ENTER:
At the command prompt, copy and paste (or type) the following command and then press ENTER:
netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
Note If you do not want to specify a directory path for the log file, use the following

netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt
Reboot the computer.

When you run the reset command, it rewrites two registry keys that are used by TCP/IP. This has

the same result as removing and reinstalling the protocol. The reset command rewrites the

following two registry keys:

SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpi p\Parameters\
SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DHCP \Parameters\

To run the manual command successfully, you must specify a file name for the log, in which the

actions that netsh takes will be recorded. When you run the manual command, TCP/IP is reset and

the actions that were taken are recorded in the log file, known as resetlog.txt in this article.

The first example, c:\resetlog.txt, creates a path where the log will reside. The second example,

resetlog.txt, creates the log file in the current directory. In either case, if the specified log

file already exists, the new log will be appended to the end of the existing file.

I personally consider Alaska, Canada, Washington, Oregon and Northern California to be 'hot'. The

Jet Stream and rains are the big players.

That torrential March/April precipitation flushed a lot of radionuclides from the atmospheric

fallout onto the West Coast land/water/plants. Boston/Vermont/Boise had the same problem.

I semi-binged and stocked the larder with tuna, salmon, mushrooms, fresh cheese and lots of other

'high risk foods', before the radionuclide storm arrived in mid-March.

US food desirability would have been greatly enhanced with a geographically focused 60 day 'milk

dump' and 'salad toss'. Alas, that did not occur. I don't like wasting food or buying poison.

The radioactive bubble has passed, to my satisfaction, for most of the food groups now. Some

exceptions are North Pacific fish, mushrooms, goat cheese, strawberries, West Coast Wines

(vintage 2011). I will be wary of North Pacific fish for years, unless extensive testing points

to the contrary. I am semi-avoiding the other items for a little longer.

The packagers and retailers have responded with generic USA labels. Since I cannot effectively

cherry pick geography, the preferred foods for now are from Mexico and further south. That

unnecessarily punishes southern farmers.--http://www.nuc.berkeley.edu/

It seems quite unlikely that there would be high enough concentrations of radionuclids in Europe

to cause radiation symptoms, especially blistering mouths?? Perhaps this may be due to sunburn?

However, I continue to be concerned over possible exposure to "hot particles" on the Northwest

coast and find the reports of "red skin" and breathing difficultries interesting. Since running

in Vancouver a day after radiation spikes on the NW coast on May 15/16 (based on Seattle data), I

have felt restriction and burning in my lungs with intermittent dry cough (no allergies). Also an

intermittent slight tingle on one of my cheeks where there is a faint red spot that seemed like a

tiny flat blister at the beginning. Also felt, along with other people, that sun has been much

more intense and burning more easily than usual these past two months in Vancouver. I thought

perhaps this is too far-fetched, but wondering if I may have been hit by and inhaled

alpha-emitting particles. Not so unlikely after seeing the recent Pu data for

Since there have been a few recent discussions where forum participants have taken Geiger counter

measurements of radioactivity in rainwater and air filters, I thought I would collect these

threads here for ease of reference -- and for quieting the fears some still have that the fallout

from Japan is anything to worry about in the U.S.

If you take your own measurements of rain or air filters, please post your data to the forum and

I will add you to this list!

Any radioactivity detected by Geiger counters in air filters or rainwater must have a natural

source, since the radioactive isotopes we in BRAWM have detected from Japan are a small fraction

of the total natural background. The elevated radioactivities that people are observing are very

consistent with the decay products of naturally-occurring Radon gas (primarily the longer-lived

isotope Radon-222). The count rates can be many times the background level at first, but they

disappear in a few hours.

To prove that the radioactivities result from the decay of radon progeny and not radioisotopes

from Japan, a simple experiment can be done. The count rate of the sample must be measured

consistently over the course of time. In about 40 minutes, the excess count rate should be about

half of what it was at the start of the test. In about 4 hours, the count rate should have

returned to background levels. This half-life of approximately 40 minutes is a result of the

decay chain of Pb-214 (27 minutes) to Bi-214 (20 minutes), both radon decay products and strong

gamma and beta emitters. Nothing with a half-life this short has made it across the ocean from

Japan, and nothing with a half-life this short could still exist in any appreciable quantity even

a couple days after March 11.

First, a gold star goes to James, who posted on 5/11 that he had measured a high count rate when

testing his home air filter: "House return air filter high total CPM"

One week later, James took 10 minute average count rates for 4 hours and posted his data. BRAWM

members analyzed it and confirmed that the rate of decay was consistent with the decay of radon

progeny in the dust: "RETURN of the Return Air Filter"

Anonymous took Geiger counter readings of their home air filters and found elevated count rates,

although they appeared to decrease by about 50% soon after.

BC has made two measurements:

BC tested dust that was stuck on their vehicle after a dust storm but did not find any

increase in radioactivity.
BC also tested mud from their garden after a rainstorm. Our analysis is that the sample did

not have an elevated level of activity.

Another forum participant took rainwater samples from their car and measured them with a Geiger

counter. They measured count rates that were about 2 to 5 times higher than background, and they

dropped down to background in 2 hours:

The counts drop to normal background levels within 2 hours. The sample is not detected if it

is further than 2-3 cm from sensor window. When I pour water from the tap onto the car (any car)

the readings are nbl [normal background levels]. When dry wiped the sample is nbl [normal

background levels].

The decay to background levels happens in 2 hours -- not quite as long as in James' case (4

hours) -- but there is a wide spread in what this person measured as background levels, and so it

is still very consistent with the decay of radon daughters.

A forum participant found that a blogger in Missouri has been taking measurements of rainwater

collected on their car and have been finding elevated levels of radioactivity with a radiation

counter since late March. In another blog post and video, this person (unwittingly) confirms the

radon progeny explanation:

The fallout sample maxed out at 0.686 mR/hr, approximately 62 times normal background

radiation as measured in Saint Louis, Missouri. Data indicates that the radioactivity in this

sample will dissipate completely within 3 hours.

Someone asked about a website in LA that is taking measurements of rain water and air filters. It

appears that one-time readings are being taken -- but not readings over the course of a few hours

-- and they have been interpreting the results as due to fallout from Japan, which cannot
