Nuclear experts hold that Fukushima radiation no threat to Hawaii
by Larry Geller
So far, there seems to be a consensus among various experts that radiation from the Fukushima nuclear plants poses no danger to Hawaii. For example (snip):
The chairman of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Gregory B. Jaczko, said Monday that the plume posed no danger to the United States. “You just aren’t going to have any radiological material that, by the time it traveled those large distances, could present any risk to the American public,” he said in a White House briefing.
Mr. Jaczko was asked if the meltdown of a core of one of the reactors would increase the chance of harmful radiation reaching Hawaii or the West Coast.
“I don’t want to speculate on various scenarios,” he replied. “But based on the design and the distances involved, it is very unlikely that there would be any harmful impacts.”

Uh, isn't this Jaczko guy a mouthpiece for the same government that told us we needed to invade Iraq because of Saddam's nonexistent weapons of mass destruction? The same government that is still spending billions in Iraq even though the grounds for the invasion eight years ago were clearly fraudulent?
Anybody who believes anything any high-level federal person says does so at their own peril.
The partial truth will come out in 10 years or more likely - never - unless you personally know a scientist you trust -
kelp or iodine tabs help -
The radiation will circle our Earth. We are all getting dosed - Again. (Chernobyl, TMI,Nevada Test Site, etc.
Building up our immune system is our best hope.
Radiation Plume to Reach Southern California Late Friday 17 Mar 2011 A United Nations forecast of the possible movement of the radioactive plume coming from crippled Japanese reactors shows it churning across the Pacific, and touching the Aleutian Islands on Thursday before hitting Southern California late Friday. The projection, by the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization, an arm of the United Nations in Vienna, gives no information about actual radiation levels but only shows how a radioactive plume would probably move and disperse.
I think Jaczko was speaking about the current release of radiation and not the worse case scenario. At least I hope he was. From what I have been reading if the worse case scenario did occur it would turn into a world wide nuclear disaster.
Build up your immune system against radiation? Honestly, you should spend more time learning about health physics, and less time writing about conspiracy theories on the internet.
