Can you believe they DELETED THIS STORY TOTALLY -- and also deleted it from my facebook wall and will not let my blog syndicate the post if I leave the link to the story in it. I am now deleting the link to the story, but the article remains intact in this blog. THERE IS A SERIOUS COVER-UP OF THE DANGERS OF THE FUKUSHIMA FALLOUT!!!
This story is so, so sad and I have not been able to get it out of my mind. The U.S. government and the media that it controls have been negligent with respect to reporting information regarding the dangers of the Fukushima fallout. This lack of information is a criminal offense in my opinion as it is is preventing people from understanding the severity of the danger from the Fukushima fallout and from properly protecting themselves and their children.
Please, everyone, be aware that there is a serious radiation danger all across the northern hemisphere. I no longer think it is safe to swim in Hawaiian waters. Everyone should be researching how to protect themselves and their children from radiation poisoning. This is ESPECIALLY true for people living in Hawaii or on the west coast of the United States.
Seals with damaged flippers and hair loss and bleeding sores are washing up in Alaska. They are dying from radiation poisoning that is spilling into the ocean relentlessly. We have got to protect ourselves and our childrren.
Take Zeolites and put them in your refrigerator to detox your food
Bath in sea salt and baking soda
Plant sunflowers on your property
Put boron in your soil
These are a few of the things I have learned. Please research and learn how to protect yourselves.

"Scientists in Alaska are investigating whether seals are being killed by radiation from Japan's crippled Fukushima nuclear plant.
Scores of ring seals have washed up on Alaska's arctic coastline since July either injured or killed by a mysterious disease which biologists first thought was a virus.
But the bleeding lesions on the hind flippers, irritated skin around the nose and eyes and patchy hair loss on the seals' fur coats may have been caused by radiation from the stricken nuclear plant.
Three reactors at the nuclear plant went into meltdown following the catastrophic tsunami caused by an 9.0-magnitude earthquake off Japan's north-east coast in March.
Now animals several thousands miles away in Barrow, Alaska, are washing up with injuries thought to have been caused by the fallout from the nuclear meltdown.
John Kelley, Professor Emeritus at the Institute of Marine Science at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, said: 'We recently received samples of seal tissue from diseased animals captured near St. Lawrence Island with a request to examine the material for radioactivity.
'There is concern expressed by some members of the local communities that there may be some relationship to the Fukushima nuclear reactor's damage.'
The results of the tests would not be available for 'several weeks,' Kelley said.
Water tests have not picked up any evidence of elevated radiation in U.S. Pacific waters since the March earthquake and tsunami in Japan, which caused multiple fuel meltdowns at the Fukushima plant and forced tens of thousands of people to evacuate the surrounding area.
Scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have been seeking the cause of the diseased seals for weeks, but have so far found no answers."

"...The Nuclear Regulatory Commission knew by March 22nd there was a possibility of elevated thyroid dose in Alaska, but evidence shows the commission worked to keep this unknown to the public.
By June, it had been recorded that a babies were dying at a 35% increased rate in eight northwest U.S. cities, evidence that supported radiation expert Joseph Managno's assertion that Americans will pay a high price for government and media cover-up and deception related to Fukushima radiation, such as telling women that there are only trace levels of radiation from Fukushima and that these are harmless..."
"ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Federal scientists said Wednesday that a nearly bald, lethargic seal recovered from the southeast Alaska coast showed the same symptoms of a disease that sickened ringed seals and Pacific walrus on the state’s north coast last year.
Fishermen last week spotted the seal near Yakutat at the top of the Alaska Panhandle, where it was captured and taken to Anchorage. The seal was determined to be so ill that it was euthanized.
Believed to be a ringed seal, it suffered symptoms similar to the ones found in 60 dead seals and 75 diseased seals that were discovered along the Beaufort and Chukchi seas of northern and northwest Alaska beginning in July, according to a National Marine Fisheries Service statement. The areas where the latest animal and the seals were found last year are separated by thousands of miles of water.
“The seal, determined to be a yearling, exhibited almost total hair loss and nodular, ulcerated scabbed skin sores,” said veterinary pathologist Kathy Burek-Huntington, who is part of an international group of experts working to the disease’s cause. “These sores are consistent with the disease process we have been seeing in the ice seals in the North Slope and Bering Strait areas.”
Most of the sickened animals were ringed seals but include 11 spotted seals and eight bearded seals, said Julie Speegle, a spokeswoman for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Diseased ringed seals also were found last year in Canada and Russia.
Ringed seals are named for ring-patterns found on their fur. They are one of five ice-dependent seals in Alaska, with a range only as far south as the northern Bering Sea. The smallest of Alaska’s ice seals, they are the main prey of polar bears. They’re also the only type of seal that can live in seawater completely covered by ice, using stout front claws to dig breathing holes.
When snow covers the holes, ringed seals dig out lairs and give birth on ice. Pups are born without a thick blubber layer and must live on ice. Polar bears gorge on ringed seal pups during the spring, often capturing them by collapsing lairs.
NOAA is considering listing ringed seals as a threatened species because of projected loss of snow cover and sea ice from climate warming.
A DNA sample of the Yakutat seal will be tested to confirm that it was a ringed seal. Its blubber thickness indicated it was in good body shape.
Sick and dead ringed seals began showing up in July on the Beaufort Sea coast near Barrow, the country’s northernmost community. Strandings were reported as far west as Point Lay and Wainwright on the Chukchi Sea. Symptoms, but no deaths, were also observed in Pacific walrus.
The animals had lesions on hind flippers and inside their mouths. Some showed patchy hair loss and skin irritation around the nose and eyes. Stricken live seals were lethargic, allowing people to approach. Necropsies on the dead ringed seals found fluid in lungs, white spots on livers and abnormal growth in brains.
The fisheries service in December declared the deaths an “unusual mortality event,” giving researchers access to more funds and expertise to find out what had happened. NOAA last month announced that symptoms were probably not caused by radiation, which was considered because of the timing and size of the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident that followed a tsunami in Japan last year.
Scientists were looking at immune system-related diseases, fungi, man-made and bio-toxins, contaminants, and stressors related to sea ice change. Dr. Stephen Raverty, a veterinary pathologist from the Provincial Veterinary Diagnostic Lab in Canada’s British Columbia, said in December that open sores may lead to bacteria invading tissue, causing the animal’s immune system to be suppressed.
Diagnosing the problem could be challenging, he said, because the initial virus might only be present for a short time.
Speegle said NOAA had received only a handful of reports of seals in Alaska with symptoms since the end of November and none could be confirmed. In early January, according to the agency, hunters in Alaska’s North Slope Borough killed three ringed seals that had complete hair coats and looked healthy but had small lesions on their flippers."
