Mysterious radioactive material enriched with uranium found over Alaska; scientists scramble to determine origin

Alaska’s famous Northern Lights have received a new and menacing visitor, reported The Daily Mail.

The Plutonium Files: MIT scientists fed radioactive oatmeal to schoolboys to see what would happen

David Gutierrez, March 14 2016
Between 1946 and 1953, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) conducted a horrifying experiment in which schoolboys were fed radioactive oatmeal, simply to support marketing claims made by the Quaker Oats company!

Fukushima fiasco: Tepco's risky removal of radioactive fuel could set off uncontrolled chain reaction; emergency delay invoked


The Tokyo Electric Power Co. announced it is delaying the relocation of fuel rods from its crippled plant reactors. Work was originally scheduled to begin today due to the fact that fuel rods remain highly vulnerable in the damaged storage pools. Right now, Fukushima is just one earthquake or tidal wave away from structural collapse, causing a catastrophic release of radioactive fuel directly into the atmosphere.

Radioactive water from fracking found in Pennsylvania streams


This week, scientists from Duke University published evidence that dangerous levels of radioactive water from natural gas drilling operations is being released into streams that feed into the water supply of western Pennsylvania cities, including Pittsburgh. The study, published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology, found radium levels 200 times higher than normal in water downstream from the Josephine Brine Treatment Facility, which processes waste water from natural gas fracking operations. In addition to the radioactive radium, the water also contained bromide, which can create cancer-causing compounds when combined with chemicals used to treat water.

Fukushima leaking radioactive materials directly into the ocean


Breaking news from Tokyo, Japan confirms that levels of cancer-causing cesium-134 are showing up in groundwater samples at rates 90- 110 times higher than all previous readings at the Fukushima disaster zone. The announcements are coming from the Tokyo Electric Power company (TEPCO) who has been monitoring the battered Fukushima nuclear power plant. Scientists believe it could take up to forty years to clean up the nuclear waste. The new high level readings of cesium-134 may mean that the destruction has just begun and that the Pacific ocean is set to become "the ultimate sponge" for this nuclear disaster.

Massive, uncontained leak at Fukushima is pouring over 710 billion becquerels of radioactive materials into atmosphere


The tsunami-caused nuclear accident at the Fukushima power station in Japan is the disaster that never ends, as new reports indicate that a wealth of new radioactive materials have been spewed into the atmosphere.

Radioactive recliner chairs, apartment buildings and household goods are not as unusual as you may think - and it's about to get


The American government has developed a solution for all the excess radioactive metal from the medical industry and military: Make it into belt buckles. Or forks. Even cheese graters are fair game. The stainless steel beverage cups used to avoid the dangers of BPA? Those are threatened with radioactivity as well. In an absurd twist of policy, The United States Department of Energy decided in December 2012 that it might be a good idea to revoke the ban on recycling radioactive material. The logic behind the proposed reversal is this: If you have a waste product that is costly to contain and dangerous, quietly offload it onto the unsuspecting masses in the form of consumer goods and building materials while turning a nice profit throughout.
