Radiation in California?
Will we get radiation in California from the Japan Nuclear Crisis?
The answer the Government would like you to believe is likely not. However if you read on you’ll find the answer is it seems to already be here.
So to the point, recent test this month on the West Coast have shown a lot more radiation in California.
I think we have a reason to worry.
A March 6th 2012 test of a HEPA filter recorded radiation levels 668% or 6.68 times the normal background radiation levels. This test took place 43 days after initial tests and shows a 130% increase since January 22nd. Youtube video
Japan Nuclear Crisis
The distance from Japan to California is something like 5,100 miles. Exactly? I’m really not sure but the point is it’s a LONG way.
The distance from Japan to California allows for a lot of dissipation along the way and because the radioactive fallout cloud material is denser than air it falls to the ground or gets brought down by radioactive rain along the way over the Pacific Ocean. But it is still showing up on the West Coast and in California.
Here are a few live radiation maps you can check for a current radiation levels in California based on real time Geiger Counter stations in the US.
You can click the radiation map to see a full version.
I have been watching from March 2011 to March 2012 and have seen it change from an average of 22-30 in the Bay Area to 30-40. So it has gone up over the year.
They call this “near real time” Gamma counts for the San Francisco Bay Area.

So in conclusion, I think we may be doomed and it could be slow and painful for many.
If you think about it this is not the first time the West Coast has been bombarded with radiation. The US Government dropped a few nuclear bombs on Japan back in 1945 during World War II. Also our very own Gov dropped many many bombs in the Pacific Ocean and Nevada Deserts back in those days.
Now a days we have a cancer epidemic. Could this be the result?
This time lapse shows every nuclear bomb dropped over the span of 1945-1998. It’s quite sad.
Fish Showing Signs of Radiation
And now Tuna being tracked in the Pacific Ocean are showing signs of radiation above normal and could pose a future threat.
Potassium Iodide Pills?
I personally am worried because there is nuclear meltdown radiation in California and San Francisco from Fukushima, Japan.
So like everyone else did I hopped online and bought Potassium Iodide Supplement pills. They are also known as Iodine Supplements or Iodoral pills. Of course being curious first I read the many positive reviews and I realized that Iodine Supplements are good for your health regardless of radiation poisoning from Japan.
