Rig, Rad, Run: Radiation Monitoring, Fukushima, and Our Nuclear Dystopia

rig-rad-run-1024w

‘RIG, RAD, RUN: Radiation Monitoring, Fukushima, and Our Nuclear Dystopia’ addresses the shortcomings and manipulations in the radiation monitoring responses of the U.S. EPA and FDA in the wake of the Fukushima disaster. In the book, author Andrew Kishner argues that preconceived, unscientific notions corrupted the EPA’s sampling and testing activities to monitor Fukushima radiation […]

Return To Fukushima: Eerie Pictures Show After-Effects Of Nuclear Chain Reaction

“Radioactive Veteran” is a documentary short that offers a new look at nuclear fallout in America. Donald Guy was a Marine in the early 1950s when the military ordered him to the Nevada Test Site, where they had begun conducting nuclear testing. Along with thousands of other Marines and soldiers, Donald was assured he was safe […]

Tomatoes May Combat The Damaging Effects Of Radiation

A team of researchers from have discovered that lycopene—the red pigment in tomatoes—is extremely successful at guarding against the harmful effects of radiation. Dr Ruth Edge from The University of Manchester, together with her colleagues Professor George Truscott from Keele University and Professors Fritz Boehm & Christian Witt from Berlin, undertook a study of lycopene (one of […]

Dried Plums Provide Protection From Bone Loss Due To Radiation

Dried plums are effective in protecting from bone loss due to iodized radiation, a new study shows. Dr. Nancy Turner, a Texas A&M AgriLife Research scientist in College Station, was one of a team of researchers who recently studied different interventions to protect from radiation-induced bone loss. Their paper, “Dried Plum Protects from Bone Loss […]

News Coverage Of Fukushima Disaster Found Lacking
