It’s been thirty years today April 26, 2016 that the Chernobyl nuclear disaster
occurred. Life expectancy in Russia and Byelorus has dropped by 20 years since
the disaster. But 60% of the radionuclides spewed out of the damaged reactor
landed OUTSIDE the USSR, mostly in Europe. More than a million people have
died prematurely thanks to Chernobyl.

Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster Anniversary #27 While Fukushima Keeps Leaking 10 MILLION Becquerels Per HOUR
April 26 2013 marks the 27th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. It has been estimated by Dr. Alexei Yablokov et. al., that, so far, about one million people have died premature deaths due to the steam explosion and ten day graphite fire that occurred at nuclear reactor Number Four in Ukraine, when that nation used to be part of the USSR back in 1986. Meanwhile, Fukushima still leaks millions Bqrls/hour of radiation…Read More...
Billions of Becquerels of radioactive cesium continue to flow out of Fukushima rivers
daily – caused by groundwater contamination from still-present leaks in nuclear reactors; radioactive iodine concentrates 10,000 times in kelp – detected in California giant kelp one month after Fukushima nuclear disaster, which is still ongoing….
Dr. Miller is interviewed on Trunews.com July 6, 2012 about the latest Fukushima
happenings in Japan: radioactive leaks and outflows into the Pacific Ocean
contaminating the tuna and the sharks off San Diego and in the Sea Of
Cortez. What is happening with the radiation? What might occur if
Fuel Pool #4 loses its water? Its walls are bulging on two sides; a
fire could start releasing 10X the amount of cesium Chernobyl released
according to Robert Alvarez, senior policy advisor to the Dept Of Energy.

26th Anniversary Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster – Fukushima Leaking Massive Amounts Radiation Poisoning Pacific Ocean Basin
April 26 2012 marks the 26th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. It has been estimated by Dr. Alexei Yablokov et. al., that, so far, about one million people have died premature deaths due to the steam explosion and ten day graphite fire that occurred at nuclear reactor Number Four in Ukraine, when that nation used to be part of the USSR back in 1986. These deaths have occurred, and many more will follow, not from just the explosion itself (‘only 31 died’ many media forums continue to say), but from the long-lived radioactive contamination of the soil, air and water that will continue killing and mutating life forms for centuries.Read More...

President Obama wants to push nuclear power when in the 7-8 years we may complete 2 nuclear plants in Ga we could put out 70,000 megawatts of windpower equaling about 24 nuclear plants without the danger of radioactivity, radioactive waste, leaks, ventings, cancer.Read More...
Dr. Conrad Miller M.D. will be available on October 26, 2009 for questions concerning his recent Tikkun magazine articles ‘Energy Generation in the Obama Years (No, Nuclear Power is Not ‘Safe and Clean’)’ and ‘Today’s Synthetic Foods: Shrinking Our Brains, Testicles and Livers?’ The latter was published in the Sept/Oct 2009 issue starting on page 27; the former was published in the July/August 2009 issue and can now be viewed online via http://www.tikkun.org or you may purchase or subscribe to the magazine.
For participation in this phonecall you may dial 888-346-3950 and then the code 11978#
It will begin at 9 PM EST or 6 PM PST (Pacific Standard Time) with an interview with Dr. Miller, and then questions will be entertained from call-in participants. Jeffrey M. Smith, author of ‘Seeds of Deception,’ will be available during the call-in segment to add to the conversation with his knowledge of the latest occurrences concerning genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) and the stories about their usage from around the world.
Recent news that President Obama has nominated two more pro-biotech anti-labelling men for important Dept of Agriculture positions will be discussed. According to the Organic Consumers Association, President Obama originally had promised to ensure GMO food and crops would indeed be labelled, as these entities are for 40% of the world’s population today. Now the industry is being given the green light to go ahead with its grand plans to have the world’s wheat become GMO and patented. Problems with the immune system, the gastrointestinal tract, incorporation into human DNA causing unknown changes in DNA function, are just some of the problems being discovered as our world is being changed not responsibly for the better by the process of imprecise gene-gunning of novel alien gene sequences into the DNA of corn and canola and cotton and soy, for beginners….In addition, Monsanto and the Gene Giants are trying to get control of the planet’s seeds so people can not pass them on to other food raisers around the planet, as mankind has always done. Contracts have to be signed; people have gone to jail for violating these contracts. Even seed ‘cleaners,’ like the man depicted in the movie ‘Food, Inc.,’ have been taken to court, their livelihoods demolished, because of this corporatization of our food production system (‘Food, Inc.,’ a MUST-see movie), patenting seeds so free-loaders can’t use them or be given them.
That’s October 26, 2009 at 6 PM on the West Coast of the USA and 9 PM on the East Coast. Everyone is welcome. Arranged by Tikkun Magazine.
A monumental victory. Good for America. Good for Barack. Heard on MSNBC this morning that already the Taliban wants to negotiate post results of this election. Now what kind of public works would be ideal to 1) get the country going again, 2) put people back to work, 3) cure a major problem, 4) be good for the environment….?…How about a massive effort like during World War II – but instead of building war machines and weapons to thwart Hitler and Mussolini’s Nazi/fascists, what about building something to cure our energy dilemma?
After some calculation, starting with the fact that one megawatt of wind energy can supply 270 homes with electricity [fact supplied by American Wind Energy Association or awea.org], what if we started building enough 2.5 megawatt Clipper wind turbines [these already commercially exist] to power ALL of the USA’s homes?! Yes, that would take 122,000 turbines. It would put people to work doing something they would take great pride in, and not be pollutive. Also, these turbines could be exported to the rest of the world, and make America the world leader in wind power. Although most Americans don’t realize this: America right now is number two in megawattage in the world behind world leader Germany.
Where could we do this? How about in all those closing car plants? Retrofit or superfit them. In 2007 Ford alone produced 2.5 MILLION vehicles. Get into those closing or closed plants, Americans, and let’s solve our energy/electricity mui pronto! No nuclear needed [first new nuclear plant wouldn't be on line til 2015 anyway; no ultimately toxic nuclear waste with over 500 different kinds of radionuclides produced every day in each of our 104 current nuclear plants to cause cancer, genetic defects, mutations, fetal loss - these are just for starters. See more in the Chernobyl post on this site re plutonium and specific other radionuclides.] Minimize ‘clean’ coal or dirty coal [remember that 50% of USA electricity is now generated by coal; 18.8% by nuclear; ~19% from natural gas; coming up to 2% by wind; only 2% by oil.]
Congratulations Mr. President-Elect, we can pull ourselves out of our economic mess by our bootstraps. At least $10 billion per month we waste in Iraq. Withdraw quickly. Sorry thanks to Mr. Bush/Cheney/Rice/Rumsfeld and all the hawky plunderers who have helped kill about 1,000,000 Iraqis and maybe 4000 Americans by now in that unfortunate oil-rich country. Negotiate with the Taliban. Let’s get the world on the road to peace, instead of war and domination. And the suppression of our own civil liberties. Can’t we close at least half of those expensive 800 military bases overseas? We’ve spent ourselves into fantastic debt and economic desecration by thinking we can rule the world and maintain our empire, mostly for the benefit of corporations who have no soul or commitment to anything humane or human.
Change. Time for it to start bubbling. The people are enthusiastic. Let’s ride the wave, and make this country and planet a great place to live and improve upon, based on love and encouragement.

Edition III of ‘The Most Important Issues Americans THINK They Know Enough About,’ addressing the above approach to our future, is featured in Dr. Miller’s book – - available from Amazon and other sources in 2 weeks.
During the third and last presidential debate on Oct 15th, John McCain said “We can eliminate our dependence on foreign oil by building 45
new nuclear plants, power plants, right away.” Barack Obama did not respond to this by saying the obvious:
“But, John, only TWO percent of our electricity is produced from oil! And by the way, 80 percent of our uranium for our nuclear plants is imported.”
Alas, he declined to do this. This whole nuclear option is NO option. Nuclear power is not ‘green’ nor is it ‘safe and clean.’ We still have the tons of nuclear waste that are radioactive for 500,000 years that we cannot safely store. Radioactivity from the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear accident has contaminated an area north of the exploded Ukrainian plant across a 750 mile diameter for 100,000 years, according to the late Dr. Vladimir Chernousenko, the nuclear physicist in charge
of cleaning up the worst industrial accident in mankind’s history. When the next Chernobyl happens, that will be the end of nuclear
power, but it will come too late. For our presidential candidates are both mouthing support for the nuclear power option when its health effects should eliminate the dirtiest most-toxic technology commonly employed by mankind from the energy roundtable. When the media should be hosting a debate on nuclear power, allowing scientists to participate
who can discuss what radioactivity can do to the human body, and the cells of all living organisms.
Dr. Alexey Yablokov, president of the Center for Russian Environmental Policy, informs us in his 2007 book that 300,000 people prematurely died so far as a result of the Chernobyl nuclear plant explosion and fire. Nuclear proponents continue to proclaim that only 31 people died at Chernobyl, as if there is no such thing as radioactivity, and over 500 radionuclides like plutonium-239 that are produced in our 104 nuclear plants every day as a result of the
fissioning or splitting of uranium to make heat to produce steam to turn a turbine to produce electricity.
Remember, all these radionuclides have dangerous ‘half-life’ periods during
which their radioactive beams can mutate your DNA and that of your fetus especially, to produce unsurvivability, death, genetic defects and cancer. Plutonium-239 has a half-life of 24,000 years. After one half life, HALF the radioactivity of plutonium-239 or any radionuclide is still present. The danger of this radioactivity to produce ill-effects continues thru 10-20 half-lives, which scientists call a radioactive element’s ‘hazardous life.’ For plutonium-239 that means 240,000 to 480,000 years. And only one millionth of one gram is the lung cancer causing dose for plutonium. That means that with 454 grams in one pound, twenty pounds of plutonium could cause lung cancer in every human being on Earth if the plutonium is dispersed and spread about the planet to possibly be inhaled by each of us 6.8 billion Earthlings.
I have decided to post my new nuclear power chapter (99% completed) from the latest edition of my book ‘The Most Important Issues Americans THINK They Know About – Edition III’ on my website so that everyone can read a broad informative discussion about nuclear power from a concerned physician’s perspective, written for the layman. It will be available in a pdf format with images and photos to make it more enjoyable and to highlight certain important concepts.
The entire book, six chapters in all, with a four part Appendicies, and nearly 1000 references, will be available from my website on October 24th 2008. It should be available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc., by mid-November.
All books purchased from the website shall be autographed by the author, until further notice.
Contact me if you have any questions on nuclear power, the health effects of radioactivity, and what we can do with especially wind and solar power to provide ALL the electricity American homes need within a few years. YES! we can do that starting NOW! See
the website http://www.crestofthewave.com for more vital information…
