BOCA RATON, Fla., Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Bawell brand water ionizer company is committed to raising awareness on issues affecting the environment and humanity's need to reduce its carbon consumption and transition towards a sustainable global "green" economy.
On March 11th 2011 a massive earthquake off the coast of Japan triggered a Tsunami which destroyed the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant leading to meltdowns of three out of four of its nuclear reactor cores. Since that time Japan has suffered from the worst nuclear disaster since the Chernobyl incident, a nuclear meltdown which is still leaking radiation into the ocean and groundwater around Japan. This disaster is being watched by the world, with many countries putting safeguards into place to protect their citizens from the effects of leaking radioactive water coming from the Fukushima nuclear power plant.
Even though the radioactive water began leaking after the tsunami in March 2011 there was a cover-up by TEPCO, who was the plant's operator. This cover-up went on until July of 2013 when the news was finally reported that radioactive water was leaking into the ocean and could not be stopped.
Rospotrebnadzor is a consumer watchdog agency that is concerned about radioactive contaminated water that has been continually leaking from the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan. This consumer watchdog website reported that, "In 2013, Russia has banned 165 batches of radiation contaminated goods from entering the country. There were mainly radioactive cars manufactured in Japan– 132, and spare parts for vehicles – 33," the Rospotrebnadzor statement said.
Manufactured goods coming out of Japan are not the only thing that is being watched closely reported the consumer watchdog Rospotrebnadzor website, "Particular attention is paid to this issue in Russia's Far East, where radiation control of fish is being implemented, including the distribution chain."
On January 3, 2014 the GlobalResearch.ca website reported, "Fresh plumes of most probably radioactive steam have been detected rising from the reactor 3 building at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, said the facility's operator company. The steam has been detected by surveillance cameras and appeared to be coming from the fifth floor of the mostly-destroyed building housing crippled reactor 3, according to Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), the plant's operator."
TEPCO is responsible for the radioactive cleanup, and has still not explained what is causing the steam or the reason the steam is rising from the reactor building. The TEPCO website reported escaping steam, being first seen in July 2013, then again on December 19, 2013 and also on the 24th, the 25th, and the 27th of December 2013. The website report explained that further inspection of the building has been delayed, because of very high levels of radiation being detected in the building causing an entry problem.
The January 1, 2014 Examiner.com report explains that the impact is far reaching by stating that, "While complete decontamination of Japan's Fukushima nuclear facility is estimated to take three decades at a cost of up to 10 trillion yen ($125 billion), as reported Monday, Fukushima's contamination of the United States, particularly the West Coast, is not being reported. The decontamination process on the West Coast is not happening."
A representative from Bawell stated "Consumers not only need to be aware that products and goods coming from Japan may be contaminated with Fukushima radiation, there is now contamination that goes way beyond that area and even western countries are being affected by this disaster." As the article from Examiner goes on to explain "The report that Michael Snyder published, which is a startling collection of evidence showing that the West Coast is being bombarded with Fukushima radiation impacting sea and human life in this ongoing mega human rights violation anticipated to result in preventable deaths."
The Examiner report continues by stating that Russia Today, one of few mainstream news sources reporting the truth about the catastrophe since its onset by writing about the extreme human rights abuses related to Fukushima. The Examiner reported that Russia Today stated, "Homeless men are being recruited for one of the most unwanted jobs in the industrialized world - clearing of radioactive fallout at the world's worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl - the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant."
This human rights abuse was also reported in the December 30, 2013 Reuters.com news report titled "Special Report: Japan's homeless recruited for murky Fukushima clean-up." The report continues by stating, "Seiji Sasa hits the train station in this northern Japanese city before dawn most mornings to prowl for homeless men. He isn't a social worker. He's a recruiter. The men in Sendai Station are potential laborers that Sasa can dispatch to contractors in Japan's nuclear disaster zone for a bounty of $100 a head."
The January 5, 2014 news report published by GlobalResearch.ca titled "Fukushima Meltdowns: A Global Conspiracy of Denial" explains the severity of the situation that no one is really addressing. The report states, "If there is any government or non-government authority in the world that is addressing the disaster at Fukushima openly, directly, honestly, and effectively, it's not apparent to the outside observer what entity that might be. There is instead an apparent global conspiracy of authorities of all sorts to deny to the public reliably accurate, comprehensible, independently verifiable (where possible), and comprehensive information about not only the condition of the Fukushima power plant itself and its surrounding communities, but about the unceasing, uncontrolled release of radioactive debris into the air and water, creating a constantly increasing risk of growing harm to the global community."
The most alarming report was published on January 4, 2014 by rt.com exposing the severity of the unacceptable repair and cleanup efforts being conducted by TEPCO. The news report continued with this statement from Yoshitatsu Uechi who was one of the 17 workers from Okinawa Prefecture sent in to work at the crippled nuclear plant in 2012. The report stated, "A former employee reveals the reason for so many leaks were cost cutting measures such as using duct tape. Among other makeshift cost-cutting measures was the use of second-hand materials. Uechi also said that wire nets were used instead of reinforcing bars during the placement of concrete for storage tank foundations. In addition, waterproof sheets were applied along the joints inside flange-type cylindrical tanks to save on the sealing agent used to join metal sheets of the storage tanks. Rain and snow had washed away the anti-corrosive agent applied around clamping bolts, reducing the sealing effect, Uechi added. According to the Fukushima worker, many of the tanks were later found to be leaking contaminated water."
The University of South Carolina website sc.edu study titled "Even low-level radioactivity is damaging" confirms that this ongoing Fukushima radiation leak plus the shoddy repair and cleanup efforts will have adverse effects on human life by stating, "Even the very lowest levels of radiation are harmful to life, scientists have concluded in the Cambridge Philosophical Society's journal Biological Reviews." The study goes on to explain that, "The scientists reported significant negative effects in a range of categories, including immunology, physiology, mutation and disease occurrence. The frequency of negative effects was beyond that of random chance."
How long will the world continue to stand idly by and allow this monstrosity to continue?
