All of the old nuclear reactors emit radioisotopes whether they are active or not.. Most radioisotopes have a positive ionic frequency called Cation.. These cation can be bonded and trapped by a negative ionic frequencys called Anion.. Sodium Bicarbonate and Calcium Bentonite are both emitters of an Anion ionic frequency that can bond trap and eliminate radioisotopes.

Has anyone at TEPCO, JAEA, IAEA, J Govt, engineering contractors Kashima, Obayashigumi, and Taiseikensetsu manufactures Toshiba, Hitachi, and Mitsubishi all involved in Daiichi has ever thought as I do... that seawater only is maybe what is flooding/gushing/leaking into below ground sections of the Daiichi plant??? After the explosions and triple melt-throughs with that the loss of containment which in melting the bedrock underneath the Daiichi Plant Not in a linear flow mind you (Humans and straight lines) Daiichi being situated right on the water..... Makes it kind of obvious that bedrock separating the seawater would have melted and seawater would come Pouring into below ground sections of the Daiichi plant..... entomb, entomb, Entomb the Whole Daiichi Plant below and above ground with cement...

According to Heyltex

While Prussian blue increases the rate of elimination of radioactive Cesium-137 and Thallium-201 from the body, it does not treat complications of radiation toxicity, such as bone marrow suppression, neutropenia, or thrombocytopenia. Patients suspected of being internally contaminated with Cesium-137 should be monitored for radiation toxicity and treated as necessary. Prussian blue might not increase the rates of elimination from the body of radioactive elements other than Cesium-137 and patients exposed to radioactive elements in addition to Cesium-137 may require additional, concomitant treatment with other agents.

Cesium-137 can do damage....

Counts Per Second is another way the US measures ionizing radiation

Counts per minute (cpm) is a measure of the detection rate of ionization events per minute. Counts are only manifested in the reading of the measuring instrument, and are not an absolute measure of the strength of the source of radiation. Whilst an instrument can display at a rate of cpm, it does not have to detect counts for one minute, as it can infer the total per minute.

Counts per second (cps) is used for measurements when higher count rates are being encountered, or if hand held radiation survey instruments are being used which can be subject to rapid changes of count rate when the instrument is moved over a source of radiation in a survey area.

Posted in: TEPCO says 100 tons of tainted water leaked at Fukushima See in context

It feels like every month there is a report of a new leak. In searching TEPCO+water+leaks, I was overwhelmed by the sheer number of leaks that have already occurred at Daiichi and posted links to a few and was thinking that if TEPCO can build a freeze wall why not a 5 meter thick cement wall to keep the contaminates from leaking into the sea. Mind you the so called decontamination process f the "tainted water" only removes cesium while leaving the other harmful contaminates in the water.

In reading a past article on JT I learned froom a poster that Daiichi was built on top of a water table that ultimately feeds into the Tokyo water supply.

TEPCO says up to 500 tons of groundwater flowing into Fukushima nuclear plantNational Sep. 21, 2011

Disillusioned Sep. 21, 2011 - 10:54AM JST

This was documented by foreign sources within the first two weeks of the disaster. It has taken TEPCO over six months to release the info? There is a large water table under the dai-ichi plant and the earth cracked in the quake and subsequent explosions. The thing is, if the water can get in it can also get out! Oh, and did I mention that water table feeds into Tokyo's water supply? TEPCO and the J-Gov sure as heck won't mention it

Mike O Brien

The element containing radioactive isotopes be it air, soil or water, the radioactive isotope has a half life. After the half life and near the end the radioactive isotope is forming what is called the daughter nuclide which in most times is also radioactive except in its final stage wherein the radioactive isotope becomes non radioactive. During its radioactive period it can contaminate elements it comes into contact with via the wind, rain, soil, snow and contaminate animal and man.

Posted in: IAEA backs controlled discharge of tainted water into sea from Fukushima plant See in context

Therefore you will have hot spots even in the ocean. Since radioactive particles do not land everywhere evenly and the concentration of the contamination will never be even. It all depends on what radioactive particles are in the water be it radioactive fuel, fallout or the access dumping of water that contain radio isotopes through contact.

I suspect optimistic propaganda on JT by some posters maybe they are newer than myself and have a lack of fore knowledge as to the ins and outs of things.. Yeah, I thought the IAEA would do something substantial back in 2011 But Not Anymore. TEPCO owned and Operated by J Govt is not any better than what it was before the buyout "bailout". They have more money is the only change. The Evacuees are still waiting and so are those who have been keeping themselves abreast of the situation....

@ Raymond Chuang

Get your facts straight before you post.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China_Experimental_Fast_Reactor

The China Experimental Fast Reactor (CEFR) is China's first fast nuclear reactor, and is located outside Beijing at the China Institute of Atomic Energy. It aims to provide China with fast-reactor design, construction, and operational experience, and will be a key facility for testing and researching components and materials to be used in subsequent fast reactors. It achieved first criticality on July 21, 2010.[1] It started generating power a year later on July 21, 2011.[2] Japan's Atomic Energy Agency (AEA) reported that the reactor stopped generating electricity in October 2011 following an accident; the director of the China Institute of Atomic Energy (CIAE) denied that any accident had occurred

Posted in: Typhoons spread Fukushima fallout, study warns See in context

I was reading that with all of the spreading of fallout. if cesium in ingested it does not leave the body as I had thought previously.

Excerpt from Radiogardase: Radiogardase traps radioactive cesium and thallium in the intestines and keeps them from being reabsorbed by the body. Once Cs137 has entered the body, it goes through a long rotation of re-absorption within the circulatory system. The ingested Cs137 is reabsorbed almost completely from the gastrointestinal tract, and, via the bloodstream, is transported to the liver where it enters the gall bladder and is finally returned to the intestine. From the intestine, around 90% is again reabsorbed into the bloodstream and the enterohepatic circulation starts anew. Radiogardase® interrupts this enterohepatic absorption of Cs137 by knocking this cyclic path out of the gastrointestinal tract and sending it out through the feces
