Obama Approves More Radiation in the Water!
While the world was transfixed on the capture of the bombing suspects in Boston, President Obama gave his final approval on raising permissible radioactive levels in drinking water post “radiological incidents.” Meaning the next time (and there will be) there is a nuclear power-plant accident, dirty bomb, or nuclear detonation you are allowed to drink more radiation! This is more “change” we can believe in!
Analysis of Obama’s approval of increase in radiation levels
The nuclear industry is loving President Obama because now their responsibility to protect the people from their disasters has been reduced. The Environmental Protection Agency’s radiation guides (known as Protective Action Guides or PAGs) reduces cleanup mandates more than anytime before. The new normal for radiation in soil will mean will an increase cancer rates from 1 in 10,000 person cancer rate to a rate of 1 in 23 persons exposed over a 30-year period. When soil is tested it can now mean radiation in amounts as high as 2,000 millirems! Source
Civilian Cancer Deaths Expected to Skyrocket Following Radiological Incidents
The irradiated soil can spread miles away from the origin of radiation in a diameter which can span miles. We already consume produce which has been gamma irradiated and now we risk radiation in the root system of plants. This is another clear case of the American Government supporting corporations over the interest of the people. Former President Bush behaved the same way by protecting big pharmaceutical companies from public liabilities.
Radiation found in Washington and Idaho tap water
To be awake in America is a sad time and realizing we have no voice is just depressing. The more people killed the better the policy I guess. My wife is suffering with breast cancer and to watch her road to recovery is painful. How President Obama could do this is insensitive and the hypocrisy of protecting the children from guns is laughable. Why is it permissible for children to drink higher levels of radiation? Or mothers to mix their baby formula with irradiated water?
