WHERE the covered-up nuclear accident happened / is happening is of major importance for at least the following reasons:
- Knowing from which region to avoid specific foods, such as dairy, wild mushrooms, tobacco leaf, or leafy greens exposed to fallout-laden precipitation;
- Those in the thick of the radioactive fallout plume ought to be alerted and at least given the information to decide for themselves if they want to evacuate; If we had an actual government that cared, major subsidized assistance with evacuations (especially for pregnant women and young children!) and financial compensation + free life-time healthcare for the affected should be part of the emergency response. [Of course, the nuclear industry could never survive scrutiny in an actual democracy; They’d have to quit their madness if all health consequences were incorporated in a cost-benefit analysis…]
- An informed public can make dietary adjustments, such as supplements to protect otherwise more easily compromised organs (Iodine for thyroid, etc.) Please leave a comment if you know of any other good articles, overviews or websites that list “what you can do“, such as “What You Should Be Doing NOW to Protect Yourself from Radiation” @ http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2013/11/what-you-should-be-doing-now-to-protect-yourself-from-fukushima-radiation.html
- If medical personnel is aware of the situation, various symptoms, otherwise easily dismissed as “probably just stress” or what not may be taken seriously and promptly investigated for being a possible reaction to radioactive contamination.
And then of course there’s “this little thing” of accountability: There are madmen that need to be stopped in their madness, arrested if necessary: in the nuclear sector itself, at the UN level (IAEA / UNEP / WHO and others likely), in government, and likely in the also-complicit media as well. That “not really” being likely, I’ve long called for something more akin to a truth and reconciliation process (See 2.5 years ago @ (May 29, 2015) https://allegedlyapparent.wordpress.com/2015/05/29/kevin-blanch-this-is-a-fucking-war/ )
