Host Michael Vara is engineer, and preparedness expert Matthew Stein discussed the ongoing debacle of Fukushima, America’s vulnerability to a Fukushima-like event, as well as the danger of long term electrical grid failure due to cyber hacking, EMP, or solar storm. Areas that were supposed to be decontaminated near the Fukushima plant have become recontaminated according to testing on soil samples, he reported. But the Japanese government is telling citizens that everything is OK, even though the levels are as high as spots near Chernobyl which the Soviet Union closed to human occupation, he added.
More than one third of the population of the U.S. lives within 50 miles of a nuclear power plant, he cited, but between 75 and 150 miles away from the Chernobyl plant there were areas that were permanently polluted from the nuclear accident, so a great many Americans are vulnerable (for more, see Stein’s article 400 Chernobyls). In terms of preparedness, he recommended the seaweed supplement modifilan to remove radioactive materials from the bloodstream, and suggested people have a plan for both evacuation and protection. He also spoke out on what he views as a public health threat from glyphosate (Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer) contamination in our food and water supplies.
