Dangerous Alpha Radiation Surface Contamination on Toshiba Shipment; Workers Burned at Toshiba Facility in South Carolina – Same Facility Separate Events

Mining Awareness +

Westinghouse is now a Toshiba (Japan) subsidiary. It is 87% Toshiba owned; 10% Kazatomprom (Kazakhstan State owned), and 3% IHI (Japan) owned.

The first US NRC “event” apparently has to do with down-blending of [Obama’s beloved] HEU (highly enriched uranium) and LEU (low enriched uranium) recovery. Some of the containers for the radioactive material shipped from South Carolina to Tennessee had high levels of alpha radiation on the outside. The highest was 106 Bq (disintegrations, shots, per second) per 100 sq cm (i.e. 10 x 10 cm or 4 x 4 inches). Nuclear is lethal through its entire fuel chain. Any one of these shots can cause genetic damage, which may or may not be properly repaired, and which can thus lead to cancer or other diseases, which may sometimes even be inherited. Alpha emitters are particularly damaging and thus difficult to repair.

How much, if any, of this radioactive…
