Note: the original article mistakenly stated "500 times normal" rather than "500% times normal."
County health experts are "befuddled" about why some West Coast radiation levels are at least five times higher than usual and 500 times greater than predicted, according to officials. Government agents, however, continue failing to issue an alert and instead, advise that the heightened level of radiation poisoning is not unsafe for humans, a grave rights abuse.
Since July 2012, this reporter has published articles about people on the United States West Coast at grave risk of radiation poisoning from Japan's Fukushima nuclear facility melt down. [See: Fukushima man-made catastrophe hitting West Coast is no hoax]
United States officials have turned a blind eye to the dangerous levels of radioactive materials bombarding Americans, according to University of California and Hatrick Penry's research.
"Despite the fact that University of California and this reporter's tests show high radiation in the air, water, food and dairy products in this state, the state and federal governments cut off special testing for Fukushima radionuclides more than half a year ago," Penry said in 2012.
Now, health officials have been spurred to at least respond when an amateur videographer with a Geiger Counter proved that radiation levels on a beach near San Francisco consistently and repeatedly registered alarmingly high levels of radiation.
Officials first learned of dangerously high radiation levels last week, and they sent their own inspector on Dec. 28, according to the Half Moon Bay Review based in San Mateo.
"The county inspector measured the beach to have a radiation level of about 100 micro-REM per hour [1 microsievert per hour], or about five times the normal amount, the Review reported. "Although the radiation levels were clearly higher than is typical, [San Mateo County environmental health director Dean Peterson] emphasized that it was still not unsafe for humans."
A top Russian Nuclear official has said that the Fukushima catastrophe matched our worst-case scenario and a U.S. Gov’t email states, "Radiation release thought to be 500 times higher than we calculated."
W. Jackson Davis, a retired professor of biological and environmental sciences at University of California, Santa Cruz says he is appalled at the lack of human protection from radiation and that is a threat to health.

It also has been repeatedly shown that since the Fukushima catastrophe began, Pacific Ocean seafood is tainted and unfit for human consumption. [See: Over 462 trillion becquerels Fukushima strontium in Pacific Ocean, Seafood risk ]
In what an Australian reporter called the "unspeakable" reality, she warned that the entire globe is being radiated by Fukushima. [See: Fukushima now radiating everyone: 'Unspeakable' reality]
Despite the above and other data proving lethality of Fukushima to Americans, especially but not limited to people on the West Coast, Peterson said he was “befuddled” about why radiation levels were higher than normal in California and remained skeptical that Fukushima's catastrophe could be the cause.
This week, Before It's News issued its own alert.
“It seems that extremely high levels of radiation are consistently being reached on the West Coast now WITHOUT RADCON 5 alerts being issued,” a Nuclear Emergency Tracking Center representative told Before It's News (BIN).
The representative advised that this warning must be spread far and wide, according to BIN.
For the last several months, Before It’s News has been tracking RADCON 5 Alerts from the NETC and believes these to be the most important alerts.
The alerts necessitated email alerts from the NETC to their subscribers, noting that 3-month CPM highs had been reached in their areas.
The government's failing to issue data necessary for RADCON 5 Alerts constitutes a human rights violation.
The levels “show that HIGH levels of radiation on the West Coast has become the ‘new normal',” Before It’s News says.
“RADCON 5 Alerts are by no means the most important readings, in fact, RADCON 2, 3, and 4 are much more important and show that radiation levels are rising, and even spiking, in specific geographical areas. All across the West Coast now, these levels are rising, some places EXTREMELY HIGH as shown in the video and screenshots below, and even in locations across the Midwest, South and East Coast, leading our representative from the NETC to exclaim.:
“It seems that extremely high levels of radiation are consistently being reached on the West Coast now WITHOUT RADCON 5 alerts being issued.”
Just as independent experts had advised soon after the Fukushima catastrophe started, the entirety of North America would be irradiated from it and millions will perish from it. [See: Experts: Fukushima 'off-scale' lethal radiation level infers millions dying]
In a shocking statement, one of the world's leading authorities on nuclear energy Dr. Helen Caldicott had advised to move out of North America if at all possible due to lethality of the situation. [See: Dr. Helen Caldicott Fukushima statement: 'Destroyer of Worlds']
Now, Before It’s News reports, “From San Francisco to Pittsburgh, from Florida to Washington state, from Washington DC to Las Vegas and all across the country, but nowhere as much as the West Coast, the CPM counts on radiation levels ARE rising, often to well over 300 CPM on AVERAGE.”
Dismissing all this, Peterson instead noted that many innocuous items could spike the radiation levels in an area, including "red-painted disposable eating utensils."
He forwarded the matter to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and California's Department of Public Health.
If the BP/U.S. government's Gulf of Mexico catastrophic poisoning of humans is any indication of how the EPA and Departments of Health will respond even to hard data, it is critically important that the reader of this article forward this matter to every loved one and independent news source.
