Hiatus

I’ve been gone. From writing here, that is. Well it all started last year after the last post. I had two ideas I wanted to write about. I could not make up my mind which one to start next, so I wrote nothing. Then life interfered with it all, followed by wanting a new place to live for me and Walter and the two kitties. So that took over and we moved three weeks ago and I am still settling in. Took me forever to unpack because we moved into a smaller place, thus, I had to find a place for all my stuff. Turns out that a lot of it has to be stored.

So I will begin writing again and a lot has happened since last time. Fukushima is still going full blast though we don’t hear a lot about it. Instead, other insidious evils have come to the fore. People don’t know right from wrong anymore. They only know, in the United States that is, Republican, Democrat or Tea Party. (there is also an Independent category.) News articles are followed by comments by people that just insult one another back and forth. I don’t comment. It’s just a waste of time. But it is a good barometer of the mentality out there.

Though I had come across one person who made an interesting comment. He said that he does not belong to any one party because he favors some things that the Republicans do and also favors some things that the Democrats do. I supposed he was striving to achieve a balance, not an extreme. So he really cannot spew hatred as so many do because he sees both the good and evil in both. And you cannot trust the news media because they are biased and tend to lie.

Anyway, that’s all for now. Will be back at it again soon.

Beyond Belief!!

I totally can’t believe that they are allowing food to be grown 60 miles from Fukushima for a popular Japanese fast food restaurant. And everyone thinks that’s okay! That’s because they are all being fed lies. Chernobyl is 221 miles from Belarus and the effects have been catastrophic on everyone in Belarus, especially the children. I read some of the comments on the news article and I’m not surprised at the gross ignorance of many who posted; treating it like some joke. For those who don’t know what happened in Belarus, go here: http://inmotion.magnumphotos.com/essay/chernobyl
A few were harping about radon in our homes. Yet radon is nothing compared to what happened to those children in Belarus. It does not compare to child whose brain is outside of his head and other gross deformities. YET….Japan plows right ahead. The problem is the culture of saving face. Saving face at the expense of millions of people and future generations. It’s an archaic mentality that is doing more harm than good.
When I read things like this, I feel like standing up and screaming In reality,they could not care less. If it is not affecting them directly at this moment, everyone turns a blind eye to it all and the mindless comments after the article prove that. (references to Godzilla, etc. like it was all a big joke)
Here is a link to that article: http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/10/02/20784072-popular-fast-food-chain-to-grow-food-60-miles-from-fukushima-plant?lite&ocid=msnhp&pos=7
There was one commenter from Japan who said, “Well someone has to be the first.” I stared at it in disbelief. Someone has to be the first to grow food on radiation infested land! Oh, the Japanese in charge say that the food will be tested…Oh please, stop lying and telling everyone it is safe!

Here is an eye opening and very informative video that I saw on another blogger’s site. Unfortunately, my computer hosed up and I had to reboot. I lost the URL to the other blogger which I would have posted here. So, I had to search You Tube for the actual video which is on Youtube. So here is the link to that video, given by Steve Starr to the New York Academy of Medicine: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDgnBqBJZNc

The biggest hair standing article I did read some time ago was that the 2020 Olympics will be held in Japan and it is all safe. Belarus is 221 miles from Chernobyl and the children are severely deformed, one with legs the size of an elephant. So how far away is Tokyo? You know what, blatantly believing the lie and going ahead with this…you get what you ask for.

There are already cases of children in Japan that have been affected by the radiation and no one hears about it because it is all being covered up. People are lulled into a soporific state of complacency; their brains dumbed-down by excessive Face-booking, Pinning and #hashtagging. No one is capable of deep thought anymore because their minds have been truncated by micro-bursts of instant information via the Internet.

There have already been cases of women in the United States that getting thyroid cancer. That’s where radiation hits first. The number of cases has zoomed up over 200%. There have been still births in British Columbia. I wrote about all this in other posts. It’s already here. It’s all being covered up and NOT reported.

I learned from watching videos on You Tube by Dr. Helen Caldicott that children born in Iraq were deformed and she was a witness to this, being a doctor. Why? Because of the nuclear warheads on the U.S. missiles used in the Iraqi war. She also stated that the U.S. servicemen were also experiencing effects from the exposure and their passing this on through their sperm. But you will never hear about it. You actually have to look OUTSIDE the country for news of the truth. I learned that a long time ago.

This kind of insanity is still going on and will not stop until it all implodes. Trust me, it will. Because nothing can be kept hidden forever.

Spiral Slicer and a Dehydrator

Okay I am taking the leap into adding more raw vegan, AGAIN, to my diet, other than salads which I eat a lot of, anyway. This came about after I learned that thriveforward.com was adding a whole vegan cooking section this month with some excellent vegan chefs. One of which, Matthew Kenney, has several raw cookbooks out. I bought one from Barnes and Noble that was raw vegan in 30 minutes. Raw Express it was called. SO….in order to make some of the recipes I went to Amazon.com and my friend, Walter, ordered a spiral slicer for me and a dehydrator. Wahoo! The other featured chef is Susan Feniger and I am definitely interested in her recipes but they are not all raw which is fine. I love Asian cuisine so I will, of course, try the Dragon bowls and variations.

So now I can make wonderful raw vegan spaghetti with zucchini. It’s a manual spiral slicer but it works pretty fast with zucchini. I tried using carrots but it will not spiral the carrot because it’s not strong enough. It only cost $35 which was within his budget. However, I can use other veg of similar consistency as zucchini. There was a recipe in the book using butternut squash but I am not sure my slicer will handle it. I will eventually find out. The zucchini dish came out really good. I marinated mushrooms in a little soy sauce, olive oil, garlic powder and a little salt for 30 minutes. I added that to the zucchini with cherry tomatoes and drizzle some more olive oil on it with Italian seasonings. It tasted more delicious that using the pasta version.

My friend, Walter, is a new convert to vegetarian/vegan and seems to like it. It will take time before all the health benefits kick in. My chiropractor said that it took years for me to wreck my body and it will take some time to restore it to health.

I haven’t used the dehydrator yet. The equipment only arrived yesterday. There is a woman who has a website, Living Raw By Grace, who has published books and holds classes to instruct others on the benefits of raw eating. I plan on getting one of her books, too, that has some dehydrated food items in it. Haley was led to a book: 12 Steps to Raw Food: How to End Your Dependency on Cooked Food by Victoria Boutenko. She ordered a Vitamix and was then on her way to healing. She lost all the weight she had been carrying and no longer needed 13 meds to survive. She was off those meds after 28 days of going raw. I know this took time but her story is an inspiration for everyone. I would eventually like to try her detoxes when I am brave enough to do it for a whole week.

So now I am going to incorporate raw cuisine into my diet. I still like cooked items and hot soup on a rainy day. Plus grilled cheese sandwiches with vegan cheese is a comfort food for me. The Thrive Forward website also has some delicious recipes you might want to check out. Just sign up as a member and reap the benefits of everything there. And also Living Raw by Grace. If you live in Arizona in the Phoenix area, you can attend one of her classes. Her is her website: http://www.livingrawbygrace.com/

Ignorance is NOT bliss…It is Ignorance

I suppose I was prompted by an imbecilic post on a recent article on Yahoo about how the Japanese government is taking over Fukushima. One guy posted that it was all greenies that were causing a panic when there is no danger from radiation! This person obviously has his head in the sand. SO…I posted a reply with a few links to various articles that have been written about how dangerous it is. Included in that was this photo journalism on Chernobyl by Paul Fusco. Keep in mind he did this 20 years after the Chernobyl incident. I am going to include his photo essay here. I have posted this link last year but it needs to be seen again if any did not look last time. You need to SEE the effects of radiation. The pictures are of children in Belarus. It’s horrible. It’s heartbreaking, but someone has to shout that there has been a massive cover-up of Fukushima, which has already been called worse than Chernobyl. So go here and LOOK: http://inmotion.magnumphotos.com/essay/chernobyl

Also for those interested, this is a very informative, if not hair raising video on Fukushima. It’s about 7 minutes long. Interesting that the source is Russia Today news. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LF1zZM9wASk
Things are worse than I even thought.

Then I saw this video, which is an hour long, on Fukushima and also facts about Chernobyl. Not only is there a massive coverup by the Japanese government but also by this one. This is a news video from VVH-TV.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LYClI5orMY
Dr. Helen Caldicott is on this video too. She is very informative and she comes from Australia. She has written a book on the dangers of radiation and has founded the Nuclear Policy Research Institute.

Here is one more link: http://www.naturalnews.com/041881_Fukushima_radiation_leaks_deception.html
TEPCO deliberately used meters that register only LOW radiation readings to deceive the general public and the world at large. They had claimed it was leaking only 100 mVs per hour when it was really leaking 1800 mVs per hour. Lies, lies and more lies!

Where It All Began

I am just giving a small update in relation to Fukushima. Do NOT believe what the EPA or any government agency says in regards to safe radiation levels. Because they are constantly raising the limits as the levels of radiation rises! Read this and listen to the interview at the end of the article: http://birthofanewearth.blogspot.se/2013/07/americans-are-in-grave-danger-due-to.html?m=1 Plus also read the article from Natural News on the same subject, which is the dumping of 300 metric tons of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean and it has been going on since March 2011. http://www.naturalnews.com/041610_Fukushima_radioactive_leak_state_of_emergency.html There is a massive coverup on this dangerous situation. There have been small leaks to the general public but not enough. Someone has to scream it before another meltdown occurs at one of the other nuclear facilities in Japan. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-08-12/fukushima-plant-workers-raise-safety-concerns/4879960

I don’t remember how I actually started watching movies last week about the Manhattan Project and all the nuclear bomb testing that went on from 1945 to 1960-something. I just suddenly got sucked into watching every documentary that Netflix had on the subject. It was a real eye opener. I had no idea we were exploding thermal nuclear devices into the upper atmosphere back then…all 331 one of them! Why on earth would anyone want to set off a thermal nuclear device in the upper atmosphere?? The total for all testing, including those under water, is 1,054! (That’s just the U.S., not counting the other countries.)The figure is staggering. Every time I watched the detonation of either an atomic bomb or a hydrogen bomb, I was filled with horror. To witness it on an old film of the event is not as nearly horrible as watching it live. Unfortunately those who saw it happen, either on the ground or standing on a battleship in the ocean, are no longer around. Unbeknownst to them, the sailors in particular, they were being exposed to high levels of radiation which later killed them. How ignorant mankind was of the dangers of nuclear radiation.

The Soviet Union (what Russia and its satellite countries were called back then) exploded 715. The United Kingdom-45; France-210; China-45; India-6; Pakistan-6; and North Korea is kind of iffy because no one is sure if they really detonated a bomb like they said they did. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_nuclear_weapons_testsLeaving out North Korea the total is 2081 nuclear weapons tested. This is not counting the ones dropped on Japan in 1945. Are we still worried about cow farts? Or that people exhale CO2? Yes, I read that some fanatics have gone off the deep end and are now complaining about human breathing causing global warming. I think there is a padded cell with their name on it somewhere.

There were several occasions that we came close to another war but this time the dreaded nuclear war. In 1995, we had notified Russia that we were sending up a missile to study the northern lights. Well, someone did not pass the info on to Moscow and before you could blink your eye, Russia thought we were sending a nuclear missile their way. So convinced they were of it, that the “football”, or case that the houses the buttons to send missiles our way, was brought before Prime Minister Yeltsin. Thankfully he held off pushing the button which would have sent nuclear missiles headed in our direction. There were other mishaps, like someone had put a training tape into the computer at NORAD and everyone at the command center thought we were about to be blown to bits. That almost started a war. There were computer glitches in which a $2 chip malfunctioned and flashed warnings on the screen that a nuclear strike was about to take place.

The thing of it is, we have heavily polluted this planet with radioactivity and that includes Fukushima and Chernobyl before it. This is not going away. The government in Japan says it will take 40 years to clean up after Fukushima. Forget it! That crap will be in our soil, our food, our oceans, and our air for thousands of years in some cases and millions of years in other cases depending on whether it is U- 238 or Plutonium 239. Christ should return just for that reason; to take the planet back from us because we have done such a grand slam job of screwing it up royally. We can’t even govern ourselves properly because we don’t know how. We don’t. I don’t care what anyone says. Just open your eyes and LOOK at the world. Well, actually He is taking the planet back. But that’s another post entirely.

Also, it is within the realms of probability for terrorists to get their hands on nuclear material. When I watched the movie “Countdown To Zero” on Netflix, it spoke of how it was easy to get uranium. There was a Russian sailor who had told a family member where the uranium was stored. So…the man (the family member) went to the naval base and found a hole in the fence. He climbed through it and did not set off an alarms. He walked up to what appeared to be an old shed and broke the lock with a crow bar or metal pipe and then opened it and helped himself to the uranium inside!!The stories told by former CIA agents were pretty hair raising. Uranium can be smuggled out of the country that has it by securing it in a lead dumbbell and then put it inside a box of sneakers. Take one sneaker out, put the dumbbell in and then put that box in a larger cardboard box with other boxes of sneakers and then put all those cardboard boxes inside a shipping container and then hide it among many other shipping containers on a ship. Uranium won’t set off a Geiger counter unless the device is very close to the box that actually houses the uranium. A bomb can be assembled once it arrives at the target country because the other pieces can be gotten off the web. I watched a segment in which V.P Biden, when he was a senator, was told this in a meeting. Yes, it showed it in the movie, too, but not the guy who actually assembled the bomb, minus the nuclear material, and brought it into the senate hearing. Same movie I mentioned before.

You have to understand how dangerous the world is we live in. But we are constantly being bombarded with mind-rot on TV to dumb down our intelligence and our ability to reason and think critically. Humans are more concerned with their own comforts, their own special interests, oblivious to what is truly happening around them. The reality will hit them all too late because the radioactive waste is traveling around the world and no place will be safe as Fukushima continues to dump its waste into the Pacific, as well as into the air. From the air it travels the globe and when it rains, the rain is radioactive and then dumps onto whatever land is there. Although I have heard that the southern hemisphere on the Atlantic side will not receive that much radiation. I don’t know how true that is. I have to do more research. Death does not discriminate. It does not care what political party you are a part of. It also does not care what is in your bank account or if you think you are better than everyone else because you are rich. No…death will find you. So no one is exempt from radiation poisoning.

I can’t include everything I have heard, read or watched here. Otherwise, it would be the longest post in history. Everyone should read for themselves and be warned and prepared. Because things are going to get worse. The best thing you can do for yourself is take care of your health. If you are overweight, lose it. Exercise, eat properly and try to eat mostly organic when you can. I know not everyone can afford it but you’d be surprise how much you can afford if you are more vegan than carnivore. You have to look at your body in terms of survival and adaptation to stress. The more fit you are, the better your chances of handling bad situations. Because even Christians have to endure bad times. We are not exempt from trials and tribulations. In fact, we are guaranteed to have them according to Christ.

And those of us that have our hope in Christ know that this society, as it is today, will not last and will be replaced permanently by the Kingdom of God when Jesus returns. Thank God for that! Right?

Radioactive Earth part II

I just read an article a few weeks back that stated that thyroid cancer has shot up 240%. They blame it in x-rays, dental x-rays and sun lamps. Really? http://health.yahoo.net/experts/dayinhealth/why-thyroid-cancer-fastest-rising-cancer-women

How about we look east toward Fukushima because as soon as I had read it was thyroid cancer, my first thoughts were radiation poisoning because that is the first place radiation likes to go. Then today there was a news article on the leakage of radioactive water into the sea from the Fukushima plant. 300 metric tons of radioactive water PER DAY is flowing into the sea. http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/08/07/19910577-wrecked-fukushima-nuke-plant-leaking-330-tons-of-contaminated-water-a-day?lite&ocid=msnhp&pos=1

A government official in Japan said he believed the leaks have been going on for two years. Okay, am I the only one with the hair on my head standing straight up? TEPCO is saying the leakage into the ocean does not pose a risk to health! They must be in the back room smoking weed to even have that reported to the world. I can’t even believe the Japanese people buy this. The Japanese government is considering providing financial aid to help with the clean up process which may take 40 years!! Now they are going to consider it? There should have been a rush to get it contained and TEPCO and the Japanese government should be asking for all the help it can get from any other country willing to provide it. The news article did not state whether they were receiving outside help or not, but to even say that it would take 40 years to clean up means that this will be going on for a very long time, poisoning everything in sight and causing who knows how many more cases of cancer or deformities.

In another article it said that greenling fish near Fukushima had 7,400 times the recommended safe limits of radioctive cesium! But the World Health Organization (another bunch smoking weed in the back room) says it poses no health risk outside of Japan. Yup! There are absolutely no ocean currents at all that could carry this to the rest of the planet and definitely no contamination of other sea life because we all know that there is an invisible protective bubble around Japan and the waters thereabouts to prevent any other life form from radioactivity. http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/05/01/17813244-a-very-fragile-situation-leaks-from-japans-wrecked-nuke-plant-raise-fears?lite It is hard for me to believe the things that are coming out of some official’s mouth and they think people are stupid enough to believe this. It’s not just the water, it’s going into the air, as well, and being carried around the planet continually because the radiation is still polluting everything.

There seems to be no end in sight and it’s going to get worse. So I think some should stop fretting over whether cow farts are causing global warming because this far supersedes an animal’s fart.

It is unfortunate that the Japanese people have to suffer like this, living in a radioactive country. This is not to leave out their first encounter with nuclear power, the atom bomb. U-238 has a half life of 4.6 billion years. U-235 is found naturally in U-238. U-235, along with plutonium 239 was used in the making of the bomb. http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/41620/atomic-bomb The half life of plutonium 239 is 24,100 years. So….Japan has been radioactive since 1945 and now is even more so. What a horrible fate.

I don’t know why other countries are not helping them instead of just doing studies that will be printed up in journals at a later date.

August 13,2013 UPDATE

The reason no one is helping Japan is because it is so radioactive that the advisers the US sent over there left and so did the military. http://birthofanewearth.blogspot.se/2013/07/americans-are-in-grave-danger-due-to.html?m=1 Also…the U.S. has downplayed this because it does not want to hurt U.S. investors because the stock prices will dip!! SO….the upper 1%, the ultra rich, who are invested in TEPCO have to be protected at the expense of everyone else. AND President Obama ordered, through the EPA, the shutdown of the radiation sensors on the West Coast in April of 2011. I guess THIS is the change everyone wanted and GOT!!

Into the Light + Vegan

Okay I think I am done with the negative stuff for now. It’s too draining. So back to talking about more positive things.

I’m ending my days as the household cook starting August 5th. Wahoo!! I think it is time I just cook for myself and my friend, Walter, who lives with us. He had decided to take the plunge and eat what I eat. I told him he will feel way better once he changes his eating habits. Plus now that I will be free from having to cook for the others in my household, I can now really get into all those recipes I saw in Vegetarian Times, which I get in the mail, along with their newsletters.  Until then I have been eating salads, some sandwiches, veggie burgers, some stir fry, and an occasional Amy’s Gluten Free and Dairy Free macaroni and cheese, which is a comfort food for me. I love veggie burgers and buy Dr. Praeger’s California Burger because it is vegan and also gluten free. Plus it tastes good.

I picked up a book (Walter paid for it) at Barnes and Noble that is entirely about kale. So I have more recipes for that vegetable. Plus there is a lot of very useful information on it as well as a few side bars on other foods that are used in some of the recipes. It was well worth getting and not that expensive. Only $14.99, plus I had a 20% off Barnes and Noble coupon. It is cheaper if you buy it online, though. http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/kale-stephanie-pedersen/1113500393?ean=9781454906254 I should add that I have read that you should add a little bit of either vinegar or lemon juice to kale so as to make it more bioavailable to the body.

I also bought some Hemp Oil and Hemp Hearts from Manitoba Farms in Sprouts Marketplace yesterday. I use Hemp Hearts on my salads but found a recipe for including it in hummus. It is very high in Omega 3, 6 and 9. One of the employees that I spoke to in the supplement department of Sprouts told me that Hemp oil is the closest thing to fish oil. He also said that flax oil has to go through several processes in the body in order for the omega 3 to be used by the body. But not the case with hemp. I had asked him about it because I could not make up my mind whether to get the hemp oil or the flax oil. I got hemp.

Hemp is green, thus contains chlorophyll which the body can use. I decided to use it in place of olive oil in salad dressings and also poured about a tablespoon into the hummus that I made last night. Which reminds me…I have to dump the hummus back into the food processor today. I learned not to make hummus when dead tired because I will forget an ingredient. In this case, I forgot one of the main ingredients…tahini! I might also make some basil pesto and add a little of that to the hummus.
