Russia's government has decided against producing genetically modified organisms (GMOs), the country's Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said Friday.
Minister Naoto Kan said Wednesday that Japan needs to seek a nuclear-free path. It doesn’t make sense economically, and enough energy can be provided without it.” Japan has seen an increase of renewable energy since the Fukushima accident, especially from solar panels.
Argentina President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, Paraguay’s Fernando Lugo, the former Brazilian leader Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, have all been hit with cancer in the last few years. Hugo Chavez speculated the United States had a cancer weapon after being diagnosed with the disease in 2011.
A recent study of 479 Vietnam veterans who were involved in Agent Orange defoliation efforts found these individuals are twice as likely to develop a blood condition known as monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance, or MGUS, a precursor for multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer.
Ontario Power Generation is proposing an underground, radioactive nuclear waste repository near the shores of Lake Huron in Kincardine, which is less than a mile inland and about 120 miles upstream from the main drinking water intakes for southeast Michigan.
The first batch of radioactive groundwater filtered below “measurable limits” at Japan’s tsumani-stricken Fukushima nuclear power plant has been dumped into the ocean, as Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) seeks to ease toxic water building-up at the site.
Birds dying of starvation along coast — Hundreds of birds are washing ashore dead or dying along Oregon, Washington Coast. Started three weeks ago… totally emaciated, fish the birds normally eat are not there, unprecedented effects could be severe, impact the whole ocean food web. No seals present; huge die off of all other sea animals, could be related to dead whales.
New study showing DNA in goats fed transgenic, GM soy feed is altered, and the milk is of lower quality, affecting the offspring, baby goats fed on GM soy had DNA fragments that were not supposed to be there, i.e., are not normally found in goat milk, and the immunoglobulin concentration was altered. The colostrum had significantly lower levels of both protein and fat.
WWF and Zoological Society of London: Tuna and mackerel populations suffered a “catastrophic” decline of nearly three quarters in the last 40% years, according to new research, warned that we face losing species critical to human food security, unless drastic action is taken to halt overfishing and other threats to marine life. Bluefin tuna, now on the verge of extinction, yellowtail tuna and albacore, also becoming increasingly scarce.
Arctic sea ice this year reached its fourth lowest level in recorded history, the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) revealed Tuesday.
Duke University-led study found that the coal ash researchers tested were up to 5 times higher than in normal soil, and as much as 10 times higher than the parent coal itself due to the concentration of radioactivity caused by combustion. Coal ash is unregulated, contained in holding ponds and landfills in coal-fired power plants across the nation.
New contaminants, some more – toxic than ‘traditional’ pollutants like heavy metals, are finding their way into the world’s rivers, lakes, groundwater and drinking water from sources such as artificial sweeteners, nanomaterials, perfumes, medical drugs, hormones, sunscreens, flame retardants, non-stick coatings, pesticide breakdown products, hospital wastes, by-products of detergents, disinfectants and swimming pool cleansers.
Japan's Fukushima nuclear power plant on Monday started releasing once-contaminated water into the sea, saying a filtration process has now made it safe.
These are the recorded Radiation Highs around the United States and in your neighborhood. *Listed in Counts per Minute, a Count is One Radioactive Decay Registered by the Instrument. All Radiation Counts reported are partial Counts. Uncounted types of radiation include Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Neutron and X-Ray radiation. Uncounted radiation, if added, makes the actual Count higher and more dangerous.

Floods may pose threat not only to radiation under Fukushima but also structures’ — Severe floods have hit Japan sending tons of radiation-contaminated water from the Fukushima nuclear plant into the ocea confirmed by the facility’s operator Tokyo Electric Power. Authorities have declared the situation an emergency. Enormous amount of radioactivity underneath the plant.
