EPA ends special monitoring for Fukushima radiation despite continued rise in nuclear fallout, increased threats to US

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced yesterday that it is
ceasing its special monitoring protocols in the US for radiation from the
Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in Japan, despite the fact that no real
progress at the plant has been made, and threats to the US are persistent. At
the same time as the EPA announcement, foreign reports also indicate that levels
of radiation in Pacific waters near the Fukushima plant are now up to 1,000
times normal levels, with no real indication of where this radioactive water is

The EPA has stated that radiation levels in the US
related to the Fukushima
incident have been “consistently decreasing,” and that the agency no longer
needs to regularly test food, air, and water for radiation in the
manner that it has been. In fact, the agency is so confident that it states in
its announcement that “[t]he next round of milk and drinking water sampling
will take place in approximately three months.”

But just a few weeks ago,
EPA data revealed that several
milk and water samples from across the country were testing positive with
dangerously high levels of radiation. Iodine-131, Cesium-134, and Cesium-137 —
all of which are being emitted from Fukushima — had been turning up in the US
in escalating amounts (http://www.naturalnews.com/032048_r…).

On top of
this, the EPA was never
even testing for all the different types of radiation being emitted from
Fukushima in the first place. EPA data sheets reveal that the agency was never
testing for uranium or plutonium, and none of its water supply tests involved
testing for anything other than radioactive Iodine-131. But everything is just
fine, they say, and further testing is unnecessary.

Meanwhile, foreign
reports reveal that water samples recently taken from the Pacific Ocean near
Fukushima are testing up to 1,000 times normal radiation levels, and at depths
of nearly 100 feet.

It has also been revealed that up until yesterday,
the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), which owns the crippled Fukushima
plant, as well as the Japanese government, had been concealing crucial radiation
information to
allegedly avoid mass panic (http://enenews.com/official-japanes…). Part of this
information shows radioactive Cesium-137 and Iodine-131 spreading all across the
US Pacific Northwest on May 5.
