The ecological disaster that keeps on giving

Fukishima may no longer be on the front pages, but the next “clean” nuclear power advocate will undoubtedly not want you to know this:

When the above four studies are tallied in one table, it becomes obvious that the result of the thyroid examinations of children in the “Fukushima Prefecture Health Management Survey” is astonishing.  This is because one-third of the children had developed “ cysts.” A “cyst” is a fluid-filled sac.  Cysts don’t mean there is an immediate chance of developing thyroid cancer.  However, it is apparent that something extraordinary is happening inside the thyroid gland, such as inflammation or changes in cellular properties.

And here is the comparison chart that is most shocking:






This study is a few months old, but it is particularly pertinent, because of this:

Fatster's Roundup



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
