TABU ~ Towards A Better Understanding
“Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.” ~Robert Oppenheimer after the first test of the atomic bomb.
Hiroshima ~ Uranium Atomic Bomb (Made in USA)
August 9, 1945
Nagasaki — Plutonium Atomic Bomb (Made in England)
63 years ago this month:
When the shocking news emerged that morning, exactly sixty-eight years ago, it took the form of a routine press release, a little more than 1,000 words long. President Harry S. Truman was in the middle of the Atlantic, returning from the Potsdam conference with Winston Churchill and Joseph Stalin. Shortly before 11 o’clock, an information officer from the Pentagon arrived at the White House carrying bundles of press releases. A few minutes later, assistant press secretary Eben Ayers started reading the announcement to about a dozen members of the Washington press corps.
In this way, on this day, President Truman informed the press, and the world, that America’s war against fascism—with victory over Germany already in hand—had culminated in exploding a revolutionary new weapon over a Japanese target. It was vital that this event be viewed as consistent with American decency and concern for human life.
And so, from its very first words, the official narrative was built on a lie, or at best a half-truth. Hiroshima did contain an important military base, used as a staging area for Southeast Asia, where perhaps 25,000 troops might be quartered. But the bomb had been aimed not at the “Army base” but at the very center of a city of 350,000, with the vast majority women and children and elderly males.The two most important reasons Hiroshima had been chosen as our number-one target were: it had been relatively untouched by conventional bombs, meaning its large population was still in place and the bomb’s effects could be fully judged; and the hills which surround the city on three sides would have a “focusing effect” (as the target committee put it), increasing the bomb’s destructive force. Indeed, a US survey of the damage, not released to the press, found that residential areas bore the brunt of the bomb, with less than 10 percent of the city’s manufacturing, transportation and storage facilities damaged.
There was something else missing in the Truman announcement: because the president in his statement failed to mention radiation effects, which officials knew would be horrendous, the imagery of just “a bigger bomb” would prevail for days in the press. Truman described the new weapon as “revolutionary” but only in regard to the destruction it could cause, failing to even mention its most lethal new feature: radiation.
On the evening of August 9, Truman addressed the American people over the radio. Again he took pains to picture Hiroshima as a military base, even claiming that “we wished in the first attack to avoid, in so far as possible, the killing of civilians.” By then, an American B-29 had dropped a second atomic bomb over the city of Nagasaki, which killed tens of thousands of civilians and only a handful of Japanese troops (along with Allied prisoners of war). Nagasaki was variously described by US officials as a “naval base” or “industrial center.”
On the night of March 9-10, 1945, a wave of 300 American bombers struck Tokyo, killing 100,000 people. Dropping nearly 1,700 tons of bombs, the war planes ravaged much of the capital city, completely burning out 16 square miles and destroying a quarter of a million structures. A million residents were left homeless.
On May 23, eleven weeks later, came the greatest air raid of the Pacific War, when 520 giant B-29 “Superfortress” bombers unleashed 4,500 tons of incendiary bombs on the heart of the already battered Japanese capital. Generating gale-force winds, the exploding incendiaries obliterated Tokyo’s commercial center and railway yards, and consumed the Ginza entertainment district. Two days later, onMay 25, a second strike of 502 “Superfortress” planes roared low over Tokyo, raining down some 4,000 tons of explosives. Together these two B-29 raids destroyed 56 square miles of the Japanese capital.
Even before the Hiroshima attack, American air force General Curtis LeMay boasted that American bombers were “driving them [Japanese] back to the stone age.” Henry H. (“Hap”) Arnold, commanding General of the Army air forces, declared in his 1949 memoirs: “It always appeared to us, atomic bomb or no atomic bomb, the Japanese were already on the verge of collapse.” This was confirmed by former Japanese prime minister Fumimaro Konoye, who said: “Fundamentally, the thing that brought about the determination to make peace was the prolonged bombing by the B-29s.”
Japan Seeks Peace
Months before the end of the war, Japan’s leaders recognized that defeat was inevitable. In April 1945 a new government headed by Kantaro Suzuki took office with the mission of ending the war. When Germany capitulated in early May, the Japanese understood that the British and Americans would now direct the full fury of their awesome military power exclusively against them.
American officials, having long since broken Japan’s secret codes, knew from intercepted messages that the country’s leaders were seeking to end the war on terms as favorable as possible. Details of these efforts were known from decoded secret communications between the Foreign Ministry in Tokyo and Japanese diplomats abroad.
In his 1965 study, Atomic Diplomacy: Hiroshima and Potsdam (pp. 107, 108), historian Gar Alperovitz writes:
Although Japanese peace feelers had been sent out as early as September 1944 (and [China's] Chiang Kai-shek had been approached regarding surrender possibilities in December 1944), the real effort to end the war began in the spring of 1945. This effort stressed the role of the Soviet Union …
In mid-April  the [US] Joint Intelligence Committee reported that Japanese leaders were looking for a way to modify the surrender terms to end the war. The State Department was convinced the Emperor was actively seeking a way to stop the fighting.
A Secret Memorandum
It was only after the war that the American public learned about Japan’s efforts to bring the conflict to an end. Chicago Tribune reporter Walter Trohan, for example, was obliged by wartime censorship to withhold for seven months one of the most important stories of the war.
In an article that finally appeared August 19, 1945, on the front pages of the Chicago Tribune and the Washington Times-Herald, Trohan revealed that on January 20, 1945, two days prior to his departure for the Yalta meeting with Stalin and Churchill, President Roosevelt received a 40-page memorandum from General Douglas MacArthur outlining five separate surrender overtures from high-level Japanese officials. (The complete text of Trohan’s article is in the Winter 1985-86 Journal, pp. 508-512.)
This memo showed that the Japanese were offering surrender terms virtually identical to the ones ultimately accepted by the Americans at the formal surrender ceremony on September 2 – that is, complete surrender of everything but the person of the Emperor. Specifically, the terms of these peace overtures included:
- Complete surrender of all Japanese forces and arms, at home, on island possessions, and in occupied countries.
- Occupation of Japan and its possessions by Allied troops under American direction.
- Japanese relinquishment of all territory seized during the war, as well as Manchuria, Korea and Taiwan.
- Regulation of Japanese industry to halt production of any weapons and other tools of war.
- Release of all prisoners of war and internees.
- Surrender of designated war criminals.

March 11, 2011 Fukishima, Japan
(please note these are U.S. designed nuke plants, General Electric design and made Mark I’s, of which over 23 are located in the U.S. with much more spent fuel stored in them then in Fukishima. Also note that this news should be in the boldest type front page headline of every newspaper in the country yet this critical news that is destroying the largest body of water on the planet, the Pacific Ocean,is not being covered.)
“Bad news from Fukushima. Over two years since the nuclear explosion which wrecked the facility after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, the Pacific Ocean is being poisoned daily with lethal doses of highly toxic substances. This has been going on for over two years and according to some analysts, millions of people are at risk. Including in the USA.
Michael Snyder is among many researchers investigating the tonnes of toxic waste pouring every single day from Fukushima for some 750 days, and it continues, every single second of every minute of every day, week and month. In his article “Radioactive Water From Fukushima Is Systematically Poisoning The Entire Pacific Ocean” published originally in the website The Truth on August 6, 2013, he claims that “a massive amount of highly radioactive water is escaping into the Pacific Ocean from the ruins of the destroyed Fukushima nuclear facility in Japan.”
The article identifies tritium, cesium and strontium as the toxic substances pouring into the Pacific Ocean and being spread far and wide by ocean currents, rain and wind. Due to the fact that these substances are toxic and are almost certainly in the food chain, then people consuming contaminated Pacific seafood are probably already contaminated and possibly have rising levels of toxicity building up inside them.
Let us see what the operator of the plant, TEPCO, or Tokyo Electric Power Company, has to say. On Monday the operator admitted that since May 2011, between twenty and forty trillion becquerels of radioactive material have poured into the Pacific Ocean. So much for the official line that the contaminated water was contained in the holding tanks under the plant.
It gets worse. There is a developing emergency situation at one of the reactors and it is spinning out of TEPCO’s control: Japan’s Nuclear Regulatory Authority has confirmed that radioactive material has breached a security barrier. In other words, TEPCO has lost control of the situation.
400 metric tonnes, every day, is being pumped into the reactor, radioactive water is getting into the sea, cancer-causing elements are leaking into the Pacific Ocean. But it gets worse still - the levels of radioactive materials is rising: levels of Caesium-134 rose by 90 times over the weekend and Caesium-137 rose by 86 times between Friday and Monday, according to TEPCO.
Quite how polluted the Pacific Ocean is and how far the contamination has spread is still a mystery. When people start dropping dead in California and Australia, we may find out.
The Powers That B’s Response so far — Pump and Pray
Greetings Fellow Earthlings ~Maybe not so ironically, 63 years to the day of our completely unnecessary nuke bombing of Japan, August 6th, 2013, TEPCO had to admit that not only are millions of gallons of radiated nuclear water pouting into the Pacific Ocean every single day now but this has been going on since the original explosions in March ’11, for over two years!!!
And ‘they’, the ones that created these generational killing machines, are now saying that they have no answers.
The leaking of highly contaminated radiation will continue every day forward for there are no answers to be had now, it is too contaminated and to widespread to contain.. The darkness of death genie is out of the bottle…..designed by man and infecting man…. releasing its cancer killing venom on land, sea and air. Chernoybyl, Three Mile Island, Hanford, San Onofre and now Fukishima. The U.S. has over 104 aged nuke plants, not counting military nuke testing labs/sites and ‘temporary’ nuke storage devices.
And it is not just the nuke powers it is all the spent nuke waste with nowhere to go but be made into Depleted Uranium to be used at wars of choice by U.S. and English military, further destroying life and land for those who generationally come in contact with it.
And it is not just the nuke power and military. It is radiated medicine, radiated food, radiation from ever increasing cell towers, wifi, computers, cell phones, etc. that permeate all lands, seas and airs as well now.How do we prepare for ever increasing cancer in all our lives and how do we stop this insane madness when people don’t even know , politicians don’t care and news doesn’t report?
Is this the ultimate Karmic payback? or simply the Ultimate Stupidity of Man to destroy the nest and very nature that gives all the life to even exist. We are about to find out.
This is our brave new world we are all living in for generations to come. This beautiful blue orb we all live on should really be called Planet Water,
(The surface of the planet is approximately 71% water and contains (5) five oceans, including the Arctic, Atlantic, Indian, Pacific and Southern.) and is being contaminated with radiation, as well as the Gulf of Mexico dying daily here from the BP/Haliburton Corexit continued spraying of the Gulf waters and resulting death of marine life.….and the silence by all is tragically deafening, on this most critical of matters affecting all.…and the governments and the corporations can all claim ‘plausible denial’ because the resulting effects of radiation take sometimes years and decades to kill, so they have zero responsibility to act.
Our children and all species of children on this planet deserve the fundamental right to exist.
They did not cause this to happen. We did.
We did it to ourselves by our apathy and ignorance….on our watch…not holding our leaders accountable, not caring enough to put our lives onto the cogs of the great machine to halt the madness.
… which will now be our legacy for time eternal.
Speak out, Be heard and… can anyone be silent on such critical matters like this?
~ Albert Einstein ~
[Hemp To Cure - see 2nd half below]
Though we may not be able to stop the further cancer causing madness we can help those that get afflicted by natures amazing weed it seems. Cancer was only a minor disease just a centruy ago and now, directly associated with the Industrial/Technolgical/Military (d)evolution we are seeing massive increases in toxicity showing up in our bodies today. If anyone would like more information or would like to hear from friends and acquaintances who have, and are still, personally winning their battles against cancer and other life threatening diseases by using hemp oil and leaf juicing please feel free to contact me.

Two and a half years after the Fukashima tragedy Japan does not want to admit how serious it is, but it is obvious the drastic environmental implications are to follow, Harvey Wasserman, journalist and advocate for renewable energy, told RT.
RT: Japanese officials have admitted a leak at Fukushima has been happening for two years and is worse than earlier thought. Why did it take so long to evaluate the actual repercussions of the tragedy and take decisive measures to tackle them?
HW: The Japanese authorities have been covering up the true depth of the disaster because they don’t want to embarrass themselves and the global nuclear industry and they are trying to open up another nuclear plant in Japan. When the Japanese people now find out that the accident is worse than we thought and they have been leaking many tons of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean for almost two and a half years, this is a catastrophe. Tokyo Electric has no idea how to control this accident. This is absolutely terrifying after two and a half years. To find out that these reactors have been out of control, now that they can’t control this they don’t know what’s going on. This is not a primitive backward country; this is Japan with advanced technology. It has very serious implications for nuclear power all over the world.
RT: Why the plant’s operator failed to contain the leak?
HW: Because they don’t know what to do. This has never happened before. You have three explosions; you have four nuclear reactors that are severely compromised. No one ever planned for this. This is an apocalyptic event. This is something that could contaminate the entire Pacific Ocean. It is extremely serious. The reality is that Tokyo Electric does not know what is happening and does not know how to control what is going on. Our entire planet is at risk here. This is two and a half years after these explosions and they are still in the dark. It’s terrifying.
Prof. Christopher Busby, to the contrary, believes that “the Pacific Ocean is big enough for this level of release not to represent the global catastrophe that some are predicting” and provides his calculations in his article on RT.com.
RT: An estimated 300 tonnes of contaminated water is spilling daily into the ocean. How come Tepco insists the leaks still pose no big threat to the environment?
HW: They are lying; they can’t face the reality of this situation. When have very serious quantities of radiation going into the Pacific Ocean. There is no medical or epidemiological or scientific basis for estimating how much damage this will cost. We are on entirely new ground here and this cannot go by without a serious impact on the entire human race. This is a terrible tragedy.
RT: According to some estimates it will take 40 years to clean-up the contaminated area. Why so long?
HW: That is not long enough. It will never be cleaned up. We have materials there that are radioactive, that are harmful, and that are dangerous for hundreds of thousands of years. They can talk about cleaning it up in 40 years but it will never be cleaned up. You will never be able to go back on that site. The radioactivity will be in the waters forever.
RT: What long-term impact of the radiation leak on Japan and its neighbouring countries we should expect in the future?
HW: There are serious health impacts. People will be harmed. We are seeing 40% rate of thyroid damage among children in the area and this is a huge impact and it will go up, not down. More and more radiation is escaping from the water and tritium into the atmosphere. And radiation to the thyroid is very serious, especially among small children and we are already seeing a 40% rate. People will be suffering for hundreds of years. I interviewed people in central Pennsylvania a year after the accident and discovered tremendous health impacts among the people there. We know that Chernobyl did tremendous damage to people in Belarus and Ukraine and now we are going to see it again in Fukushima.
Samples taken on Monday showed levels of possibly cancer-causing caesium-134 were more than 90 times higher than they were on Friday, at 9000 becquerels per litre, Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco) revealed.
Levels of caesium-137 stood at 18 000 becquerels per litre, 86 times higher than at the end of last week, the utility said.
“We still don’t know why the level of radiation surged, but we are continuing efforts to avert further expansion of contamination,” a Tepco spokesperson stated.
When cesium gets into your body, it can do a tremendous amount of damage. The following is an excerpt from a NewScientist article that described what happens when cesium and iodine enter the human body…
Moreover the human body absorbs iodine and caesium readily. “Essentially all the iodine or caesium inhaled or swallowed crosses into the blood,” says Keith Baverstock, former head of radiation protection for the World Health Organization’s European office, who has studied Chernobyl’s health effects.
Iodine is rapidly absorbed by the thyroid, and leaves only as it decays radioactively, with a half-life of eight days. Caesium is absorbed by muscles, where its half-life of 30 years means that it remains until it is excreted by the body. It takes between 10 and 100 days to excrete half of what has been consumed.
And it is important to keep in mind that it has been estimated that each spent fuel pool at the Fukushima nuclear complex could have 24,000 times the amount of cesium that was produced by the nuclear bomb that the U.S. dropped on Hiroshima at the end of World War 2.
Tritium and Stronium
Tepco said on Friday that a cumulative 20 trillion to 40 trillion becquerels of radioactive tritium had probably leaked into the sea since the disaster. The company said this was within legal limits.Tritium is far less harmful than cesium and strontium, which have also been released from the plant. Tepco is scheduled to test strontium levels next.
40 trillion becquerels of radioactive tritium have gotten into the Pacific Ocean?
And that is what they are publicly admitting. The reality is probably far worse. And all of that tritium is going to be around for a very long time. You see, the truth is that tritium has a half-life of about 12 years.
But strontium is even worse. Strontium can cause bone cancer and it has a half-life of close to 29 years.
And now Tepco is admitting that extremely dangerous levels of strontium have been escaping from Fukushima and getting into the underground water. And of course the underground water flows out into the Pacific Ocean…
Tepco said in late June that it had detected the highly toxic strontium-90, a by-product of nuclear fission that can cause bone cancer if ingested, at levels 30 times the permitted rate.
The substances, which were released by the meltdowns of reactors at the plant in the aftermath of the huge tsunami of March 2011, were not absorbed by soil and have made their way into underground water.
Subsoil water usually flows out to sea, meaning these two substances could normally make their way into the ocean, possibly affecting marine life and ultimately impacting humans who eat sea creatures.
The Problem with Tritium
YOTSUKURA, FUKUSHIMA The rising level of tritium measured in kelp samples south of the Fukushima 1 nuclear site is an indicator of intensifying nuclear reactions deep in the soil below the cracked reactors. Following the meltdowns in spring 2011, superheated fuel rods in up to three reactors have penetrated multiple barriers including the core shrouds, containment chambers and concrete foundations, escaping into the porous ground. Now inaccessible and scattered underground, the remnant fuel is getting hot enough to create huge flows of deuterium and radioactive tritium, which are commonly known as heavy water.
Two serious threats are emerging during this tritium build-up:
- medical effects of exposure to beta particles on top of gamma radiation from the Fukushima releases;
- and more ominous, the possibility of a tritium-deuterium fusion reaction that triggers a plutonium blast more powerful than the 2011 explosion at Reactor 3.
A bizarre sky over the Fukushima region as tritium releases soared
Apologists for the nuclear industry, including the Wall Street Journal, boldly assert beta radiation emitted by tritium poses no health threat. This irresponsible claim is based on a gross underestimate of the effects of beta rays. While less powerful than gamma radiation, beta radiation can ionize DNA. Externally beta rays can be blocked by a thin sheet of metal foil, but inside human tissues there are no physical barriers to prevent beta particles from rupturing chromosomes.
As summarized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency: “The main chronic health effect from (beta) radiation is cancer. When taken internally beta emitters can cause tissue damage and increase the risk of cancer. The risk of cancer increases with increasing dose.” Tritium is a beta emitter.
The meltdown of mixed oxide (MOX) fuel, which contains highly enriched plutonium, is suspected of having seared through the shroud, containment chamber and ferroconcrete foundation, thereby escaping into the soil. Steam from vents in the ground, along with tritium releases in leaked water, indicate that the meltdowns are not only continuing but also heating up dramatically.
Lumps of corium can melt the surrounding silicate rock to create a glassy bubble, which traps the tritium and deuterium steam and reflects back their radiation. These subterranean pockets resemble a soft-boiled egg, with a “yolk” of melting nuclear fuel surrounded by the “egg white” of pressurized tritium-deuterium steam inside a “shell” of reflective glazed rock. The self-enclosed reaction chamber will gestate and then hatch with a blast wave of sufficient force to trigger other corium pockets to explode.
The serial nuclear blasts could blow the ground into the sky, momentarily lifting the Fukushima reactors. Then everything will come crashing down into the gaping pit, ending any hopes of quelling the meltdowns. Needless to say, the nuclear workers and local population would be killed by the blast wave or the lethal emissions. The release of vast amounts of radiation would force the evacuation of nuclear plants in operation across Japan, resulting in dozens more meltdowns.
Civilization will become untenable, as hundreds of millions of casualties mount. This is probably a best-case scenario, since the downward blast force could have more dire consequences.
Hell and High Water
The Fukushima nuclear plants rest atop the Abukuma block, a mega-sheet of bedrock uplifted by the subduction of the Pacific plate under the Okhotsk plate. Inside the impact zone, both plates are cracking under enormous pressure, which heats the rock into magma and causes volcanic activity in the region.
The hundreds of tons of escaped nuclear fuel beneath the Fukushma No.1 plant exceeds the combined weight of all fissile material in nuclear-weapons testing to date. If this melting mass of uranium and plutonium were to explode, the seams in the tectonic plates could be blown apart, unloosing rivers of magma onto the Earth’s surface. A vast cloud of radioactive particles, toxic gases, sulfur and industrial waste would encircle the globe with more deadly consequences than the 1883 Krakatoa eruption.. The human species, a parasite dependant on other life-forms and vulnerable to oxygen depletion, will be among the first to go extinct.

The chief manager of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, Masao Yoshida (pictured above), died of cancer on July 9th aged 58. Yoshida disobeyed Tepco’s orders and inundated the three reactors with sea water to provide cooling. Tepco hesitated, as doing so would guarantee the reactors would never be usable again due to salt water corrosion. Yoshida even affirmed the carrying out of Tepco’s orders to NOT use sea water, verbally over the phone, while hand writing a note to his assistant to go right ahead and order sea water cooling. Tepco only learned of this at a later date.
Stop eating fish.
Our government will only tell you now that you are safe and to go back to sleep.
Note: San Onofre, like 98% of all nuke plants in Japan have gone offline, yet no one lost power of any consequence…hmmmm.
What does ‘Geological Disposal’ Mean exactly?
“Recycling is a euphemism for reprocessing which is one of the worst polluters of the atmosphere and the ocean, and is a direct conduit to proliferation,” said Mali Martha Lightfoot, executive director of the Helen Caldicott Foundation. “It is not really a solution to anything except how can the industry get more of our money. It also ups the ante for reactor accident danger, as in the case of Fukushima, because MOX fuel has plutonium in it.” Mixed-oxide or MOX fuel is recycled from nuclear warheads.
The United States’ current inventory of domestic used nuclear fuel “is massive, diverse, dispersed, and increasing,” according to the Oak Ridge report. Stored at 79 temporary sites in 34 states, it represents”a total of about 23 billion curies of long-lived radioactivity.”
There’s little hope that the 70,000 metric tons of used nuclear fuel dispersed across the United States will ever be recycled, according to a recent study by Oak Ridge National Laboratory—so nearly all existing waste will go into the earth.
In a study completed late last year, Oak Ridge officials determined that the U.S. is at least 20 years away from large-scale reprocessing of used nuclear fuel, if it decides to pursue such technologies. By then, they estimate, nuclear plants will have generated another 40,000 metric tons of spent fuel.
“Based on the technical assessment, about 68,450 (metric tons) or about 98 percent of the total current inventory by mass, can proceed to permanent disposal without the need to ensure retrievability for reuse or research purposes,” Oak Ridge officials conclude in a report issued late last year.
The remaining 2 percent should be reserved for research into storage and reprocessing technologies, the report advised.
Only Problems, NO Answers for Hanford, WA Huge Waste Problem
The most toxic and voluminous nuclear waste in the U.S.—208 million liters —sits in decaying underground tanks at the Hanford Site (a nuclear reservation) in southeastern Washington State. It accumulated there from the middle of World War II, when the Manhattan Project invented the first nuclear weapon, to 1987, when the last reactor shut down. The federal government’s current attempt at a permanent solution for safely storing that waste for centuries—the Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant here—has hit a major snag in the form of potential chain reactions, hydrogen explosions and leaks from metal corrosion. And the revelation last February that six more of the storage tanks are currently leaking has further ramped up the pressure for resolution.
- Willie Nelson
The Hemp plant is being rediscovered to have profound cures for all types of cancer, diabetes, ms, and many, many other serious diseases. What if the medical community and our government were complicit in keeping the lid on this because the treatments can be done by anyone who can grow a plant and do basic cooking? What if that lid is no being blown off an the internet is exploding with case after case after case after case of personal testimonies of people who have cured themselves by using hemp oil or leaf juicing? ..and the most serious side effect was a really good buzz…or not?
If you had learned you had cancer would you rather try a non invasive, low cost,proven highly effective treatment that does not profit the medical, solely for profit, establishment who only knows how to prescribe pills, radiate the radiation cells or perform invasive surgery?
Up here in the ‘Emerald Triangle’ the cases of people healing themselves is exploding and word is getting around as we see now over 20 states approving medical hemp and Uraguay is becoming the first country to legalize it.
1) There are two different recent medical hemp (marijuana) cures for cancer, ms, diabetes, glaucoma, burns and many other medical diseases; hemp oil, developed by Rick Simpson about 11 years ago and Juicing hemp leaves which cures without the ‘high’ effect since nothing is heated to release the THC (what gives you the buzz)
Hemp Oil; is a very high concentrate of the highest quality hemp (Indica strain). The buds and plant is dilluted down with 99% rubbing alcohol in a rice cooker. Once the solvent is burned off you are left with a concentrate of pure Canibinoid (CBD) which is the healing property of the hemp. It takes about 3 hours to make and is immediately ready for treatment. Treatment begins with a syringe of a tiny drop building up overtime as not to overwhelm the person using it with a very big high (THC). It generally takes 2 -4 months for a complete cure. Rick Simpson, a Canadian, has completely cured over 5,000 people with cancer over the past ten years and has the data and testimony on his website. He has scientific data to support all his work as well as many, many MD’s who have become believers thanks to Rick. He has also been raided and harassed to no end by the RCMP, the Canadian legal system and the Canadian conventional medical association.
LEAF Juicing: Since 2004. Dr. William Courtney, a Western medical doctor has been treating many different severe diseases using the leafs of hemp in a blender. This type of juicing does not dilute the Canibinoid (CBD) out by heating and does not have the pyschoactive (buzz) effects, so it is totally safe for all, especially children. He practices in Mendocino and has many, many success stories. Here is a you tube on his work.
Here is Dr. Courtney’s Website:
2) Since the 1930′s, when Dupont chemical, Hearst Newspapers and Rockefeller Oil joined together there has been a war on hemp. Dupont had just developed nylon and wanted to replace hemp rope, Hearst wanted to use timber paper instead of Hemp and Rockefeller wanted to develop the oil dependent medical industry, so with the help of Harry J. Asingler, who ran the Federal Bureau of Narcotics for 32 years, the crushed any and all attempts to legalize hemp through massive propaganda campaigns. Now, in just the past 10 years or so word has gotten out and is spreading about the healing powers of hemp in a big way and since anyone can make their own cure……
3) Up here in the Emerald Triangle (Mendocino, Humbolt and Trinity Counties) the number of success stories for curing cancer, diabetes, glaucoma, etc. are known to many. My next door neighbor, Joni, had been diagnosed two years ago with breast cancer and took Hemp oil she made herself and has no remission of the cancer and feels wonderful. she also knows many who have had success as well that she can put you in touch with.
4) Apparently, the reason why this is so successful is that we generate natural CBD’s in our body and the receptors respond by communicating back and forth as opposed to the conventional medical industry’s treatments of one directional receptor communication. It is as if the CBD knows where to go to heal and the body is recognizing the natural healing of a like type and works with the CBD as opposed to conventional treatment of giving massive radiation to cure the radioactive cells.
5) Over 15 states have now legalized medical marijuana and the Federal government is desperate to stop these treatments because anyone can grow the plant and make the treatment themselves. In fact there is website called Cure your own cancer.
As this self treatment gains the people of this country will become very angry and further disillusioned from the take a pill, cut it out, radiate it conventional medical industry who refuses to even acknowledge the preponderance of scientific evidence and personal testimonies. This is because the power to heal lies within YOU and you can reclaim control of your own cure, with there help.
6) I have living on the property, Chuck Jacobs, one of the world’s leading Endo Canibinoidists, who has had many personal success’ treating others, as well as himself, with the Simpson Oil. He has personally worked with Mr. Simpson, including traveling with him to Czechoslovakia and Afghanistan giving symposiums and workshops on Hemp Oil. Dr. William Courtney lives on the coast up here and I will be getting a consultation from him soon to learn more about LEAF juicing.
Read the literature below, especially the Run from the Cure (56 min.) below and LEAF (15 min.) above. After watching those I’d also highly recommend the following interviews as well as review the science behind hemp oil, which you can give to the conventional medical people, if you wish. (attachment)

Department of Medicinal Chemistry and Natural Products, School of Pharmacy, Faculty of Medicine, Hebrew University, Ein Kerem Campus, Jerusalem 91120, Israel. Published online in Wiley InterScience (www.interscience.wiley.com).
Abstract: Research on the chemistry and pharmacology of cannabinoids and endocannabinoids has reached enormous proportions, with approximately 15,000 articles on Cannabis sativa L. and cannabinoids and over 2,000 articles on endocannabinoids. The present review deals with the history of the Cannabis sativa L. plant, its uses, constituent compounds and their biogeneses, and similarity to compounds from Radula spp. In addition, details of the pharmacology of natural cannabinoids, as well as synthetic agonists and antagonists are presented. Finally, details regarding the pioneering isolation of the endocannabinoid anandamide, as well as the pharmacology and potential therapeutic uses of endocannabinoid congeners are presented. 2008 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

Cannabis sativa L. (hemp) and its phytochemical products (hashish, marihuana) are the most widely produced, plant-based, illicit drugs and the illegal drug most frequently used in Europe. The illegal status and widespread use of Cannabis has simultaneously stimulated efforts to identify the psychoactive constituents of Cannabis while making basic and clinical research on the properties of Cannabis difficult.
Despite these obstacles, the discovery of endocannabinoids and delineation of their biochemical and physiological actions in multiple organ systems is currently a significant arena of research. Similarly, the medicinal properties of Cannabis products have been recognized for millennia, but their legal or licensed use in medicine remains controversial.
The most prominent therapeutic indications for Cannabis-derived galenicals, or related products (e.g., Marinol) in the modern world include: as an analgesic for cancer pain, post-operative pain, and phantom limb pain; for decreasing intraocular pressure in glaucoma; reducing spasticity, ataxia, and muscle weakness associated with multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, and spinal cord injuries; bronchodilatation in asthma, suppressing emesis induced by oncolytics; and appetite stimulation in response to cachexia/ anorexia caused by opioids, antivirals, AIDS-related illnesses or terminal cancer.
With active research describing the wide variety of the endocannabinoid system and its receptors currently ongoing, additional medicinal applications for the use of synthetic cannabinoid ligands of greater selectivity and reduced side-effect profile than the galenicals will undoubtedly arise in the future…………

WAR on Cancer is a WAR against Finding a Cure
(the war on cancer has been going on for over 20 years with hundreds of billions spent to ‘find a cure’ with hundreds of billions in profits generated to Big Pharma. Coincidence that the ‘cure’ is never found except to cut it out, radiate it or take a pill???)
It is also not the technique used by scientists who are searching for a cure for cancer. Scientists who are searching for a cancer cure are searching for a synthetic ‘medicine’ to treat patients already suffering from cancer. That’s where the money is to be found. That’s where the research grants come from. That’s how you get a Nobel Prize for medicine; by developing a ‘cure’.
But there is little money to be made by learning to prevent cancer, or by curing cancer one patient at a time – so nobody is interested. If your cancer has been cured – doctors are not interested. You are no longer a patient.
If your cancer has been cured – scientists are not interested. More money can be made by studying people who have cancer.
If your cancer has been cured – your insurance company is not interested. Don’t expect your insurance company to make any payments for ‘alternative’ cures. Insurance companies pay for ‘recognized treatments’, of which there are many – especially ’cancer treatments’. But your insurance company believes there are no cancer cures.
So how can we find the cure(s) for cancer(s) if we refuse to look at the people who are cured? How can we cure cancer if we refuse to look at people who are healthy?
Dr. Sanjay Gupta Backs Medicinal Hemp
(even the corporate media shills are no longer able to deny Hemp to heal and prevent.)
Long before I began this project, I had steadily reviewed the scientific literature on medical marijuana from the United States and thought it was fairly unimpressive. Reading these papers five years ago, it was hard to make a case for medicinal marijuana. I even wrote about this in a TIME magazine article, back in 2009, titled “Why I would Vote No on Pot.” Well, I am here to apologize.
While investigating, I realized something else quite important. Medical marijuana is not new, and the medical community has been writing about it for a long time. There were in fact hundreds of journal articles, mostly documenting the benefits. Most of those papers, however, were written between the years 1840 and 1930. The papers described the use of medical marijuana to treat “neuralgia, convulsive disorders, emaciation,” among other things.
Looking forward, I am especially intrigued by studies like those in Spain and Israel looking at the anti-cancer effects of marijuana and its components.
I’m intrigued by the neuro-protective study by Lev Meschoulam in Israel, and research in Israel and the United States on whether the drug might help alleviate symptoms of PTSD. I promise to do my part to help, genuinely and honestly, fill the remaining void in our knowledge.
A search through the U.S. National Library of Medicine this past year pulled up nearly 20,000 more recent papers. But the majority were research into the harm of marijuana, such as “Bad trip due to anticholinergic effect of cannabis,” or “Cannabis induced pancreatitits” and “Marijuana use and risk of lung cancer.”
In my quick running of the numbers, I calculated about 6% of the current U.S. marijuana studies investigate the benefits of medical marijuana. The rest are designed to investigate harm. That imbalance paints a highly distorted picture.
The challenges of marijuana research
To do studies on marijuana in the United States today, you need two important things.First of all, you need marijuana. And marijuana is illegal. You see the problem. Scientists can get research marijuana from a special farm in Mississippi, which is astonishingly located in the middle of the Ole Miss campus, but it is challenging. When I visited this year, there was no marijuana being grown.
The second thing you need is approval, and the scientists I interviewed kept reminding me how tedious that can be. While a cancer study may first be evaluated by the National Cancer Institute, or a pain study may go through the National Institute for Neurological Disorders, there is one more approval required for marijuana: NIDA, the National Institute on Drug Abuse. It is an organization that has a core mission of studying drug abuse, as opposed to benefit. Stuck in the middle are the legitimate patients who depend on marijuana as a medicine, oftentimes as their only good option.
Keep in mind that up until 1943, marijuana was part of the United States drug pharmacopeia. One of the conditions for which it was prescribed was neuropathic pain. It is a miserable pain that’s tough to treat. My own patients have described it as “lancinating, burning and a barrage of pins and needles.” While marijuana has long been documented to be effective for this awful pain, the most common medications prescribed today come from the poppy plant, including morphine, oxycodone and dilaudid.
Here is the problem. Most of these medications don’t work very well for this kind of pain, and tolerance is a real problem.
Most frightening to me is that someone dies in the United States every 19 minutes from a prescription drug overdose, mostly accidental. Every 19 minutes. It is a horrifying statistic. As much as I searched, I could not find a documented case of death from marijuana overdose. It is perhaps no surprise then that 76% of physicians recently surveyed said they would approve the use of marijuana to help ease a woman’s pain from breast cancer. When marijuana became a schedule 1 substance, there was a request to fill a “void in our knowledge.” In the United States, that has been challenging because of the infrastructure surrounding the study of an illegal substance, with a drug abuse organization at the heart of the approval process. And yet, despite the hurdles, we have made considerable progress that continues today.

Cannabis is labeled by the US Government as a Schedule One Narcotic, meaning little to no known medical value. (Even though the US Govt holds patents that state otherwise) Marinol, which is APPROVED BY THE FDA, is synthesized THC. Millions of people are sitting in jail for using Cannabis raw, but it’s ‘perfectly fine’ to use the plant if the Government and their corporate owners take most of the medicine out of it, then get to charge you an arm and a leg for it. Why is that? I shall explain.
The US Government is well aware Cannabis has medicinal properties. How could they not? It’s been used as a medicine for at least the past 10,000 years. Even in America, Cannabis was used as a medicine for over 100 years. It was in over a hundred over the counter medicines for a wide range of reasons. Everything from pain and nausea medication to sleeping tonics. (Why did they make it illegal? It’s a long story so I won’t go into it today.. If you’d like to read about the greed and racism that caused the criminalization of the worlds most useful plant, check out this article)
Among the reasons you will learn about on the link I shared above, the US Government has even more reason to keep it illegal today. If Cannabis were to become legalized, it would eat away at TRILLIONS of pharmaceutical profits over the years. (Not including other profits like the billions they get for keeping our privately owned prisons full)
What most people don’t realize is, the Government(s) have been helping the major pharmaceutical companies stonewall natural cures for decades. (Cannabis is merely one of many they have tried to bury and discredit) In fact, the US Government has known since 1974 that Cannabis cures Cancer. In ’72 Richard Nixon wanted a larger budget for his war on drugs. He thought that if he proved Cannabis caused lung cancer like cigarettes do, he would get the support he needed. He gave the Medical College of Virginia 2 years to do a study on the effects of THC on the body. In ’74 the study was completed. It turns out, THC when ingested in highly concentrated forms (such as eating Cannabis oil) will attack any mutated cells in your body while strengthening and rejuvenating the healthy cells. They found the PERFECT cure for Cancer. It worked fast, it worked well, it worked on many different forms of Cancer in ALL stages and it had ZERO harmful side effects. (Unlike Chemo which deteriorates your entire body and kills 1 in 5 patients. Not only that, but other research shows it dissolves ALL forms of tumors and can even combat super-bugs like MRSA.) When Richard Nixon saw the results of the study he was FURIOUS. He threw the entire report in the trash and deemed the study classified. In 1976 President Gerald Ford put an end to all public cannabis research and granted exclusive research rights to major pharmaceutical companies, who set out — unsuccessfully — to develop synthetic forms of THC that would deliver all the medical benefits without the “high.”
We only found out about the study a few years ago thanks to dedicated medical and law professionals who filed Freedom of Information Requests. The Government lied for many reasons.. One of the main reasons is Pharmaceutical Companies. They spend billions every year lobbying to keep Cannabis illegal because they make TRILLIONS off Cancer drugs and research. They are already well aware that Cannabis cures Cancer. They have a well thought out con going at the moment. Cancer patients and their loved ones will spend their entire life savings or even sell their houses and businesses in order to pay for Chemotherapy and other Cancer treatment drugs. A lot of the time they spend all that money and their loved one dies anyway. If the public found out that the Government has been lying for over 40 years, that MILLIONS of lives could have been saved and that the dying could grow the cure they so desperately need in their own backyard… The American public would be going nuts over it. This is why we need your help telling people!
Here is an article about what they did if you’d like to read more, as well as an article about more suppressed research.
Keep in mind.. The US Government also holds a Patent on Cannabis and it’s medicinal properties. US Patent 6630507 states unequivocally that cannabinoids are useful in the prevention and treatment of a wide variety of diseases including auto-immune disorders, stroke, trauma, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and HIV dementia. The patent, awarded in 2003, is based on research done by the National Institute of Health, and is assigned to the US Dept. of Health and Human Services. In the age of information, they can no longer keep their lies about Cannabis afloat.
More Natural Cures for Cancer
Over the course of the past few years we have uncovered a remarkable body of research on the medicinal properties of mushrooms. In fact, when it comes to natural cancer research, no other category has been the subject of more human clinical research than AHCC and Lentinan, both unique preparations of shiitake mushroom.
How can edible mushrooms like shiitake protect us against cancer, perhaps the most widely feared disease that presently afflicts our species? Could the reason be that we co-evolved with fungi, and that the essential polysaccharides they contain were present in our diet for so long that the genetic/epigenetic infrastructure of our bodies now depends on them? Beta-glucan, after all, is found widely distributed in whole grains, nutritional yeast, as well as fungi. The friendly bacteria, in and outside of our gut, produce the beta-glucan fraction through the biotransformative processes of digestive fermentation and, in the case of food, culturing. Could it be that, failing to consume (or produce) adequate quantities, our body fails in its cancer immunosurveillance — not unlike the well-established role that vitamin D deficiency has in maintaining proper immune function, and therefore reducing cancer risk.

The large series of volcanoes (some active) encircling the Pacific Ocean are referred to as being part of the Ring of Fire, and notorious for frequent earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
The Ring of Fire coinciding with the edges of one of the world’s main tectonic plates, (the Pacific Plate) contains over 450 volcanoes and is home to approximately 75% of the world’s active volcanoes.
Nearly 90% of the world’s earthquakes occur along the Ring of Fire; most recently, the devasting quakes in Chile, Japan and New Zealand.
