September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

The information that I have seen is that there is a HUGE difference between Japan and Chernobyl. All of the Japanese reators are in steel containment vessels, whereas Chernobyl had no cantainment at all. Also, it literally had a nuclear explosion, whereas at Fukushima, what blew up is a build up of hydrogen from the seawater reacting with the intense heat. THe first two explosions they say only affected the outer building that surrounds the reactors, but the third explosion late yesterday they are saying took place inside the steel containment vessel, which is not good at all as it may have damage the steel vessel that encloses the fuel rods.

So from what I have read, it isn't as bad as Chernobyl at all. Two completely different reactor designs. The Japanese reactors won't blow up like Chernobyl they say.

Also, another misunderstanding is with what a "meltdown" is. A meltdown is simply when the rods get so hot they break apart and can literally melt through the containment vessel they are in, right through the floor possibly into the ground below.

They say the reason they can't cool them down is that the tsunami damaged the generators that run the cooling systems that circulate the water, and the third backup, the batteries only last about 8 hours they say, and those have since been exhausted. So they have been pumping seawater directly in which destroys the reactor and makes it unrepairable.

One nuke expert calls the seawater move as a "hail mary pass" last ditch effort. Unfortunately, the last second pass isn't working. Apparently the seawater is escaping faster that they can pump it in, so the robs are being exposed which allows them to heat up and eventually melt down. Who knows how much radiation could get out if all 3 melt down. That's what I haven't heard any expert talk about if all 3 were to have a melt down.

The first 2, reactors number 1 and 3, had the outer buildings blow away from the containment vessels, but the thrid one, I assume number 2 reactor, had an explosion within the containment vessel.

If like the article posted says that the number 3 unit is the one with the MOX fuel, then that means the worst one was the second explosion, and the third one is the same as the first.

Completely confused now? Short answer; VERY bad, especially if a melt down causes any particulate radioactive matter to get into the air and carried off by the wind currents. It's one thing to have radioactive matter in the air, but to have actual fuel rob material blowing around in the air is the worst case scenario.

About iodine. People seem to think it's the cure-all for radiation, but it's not. It's very limited to just protecting the thyroid gland, that's it. So all one is doing is protecting themselves from thyroid cancer, but are still fully exposed to other type cancers.

Again, this is a very bad situation.

What's really compelling is that all this happened literally in the blink of an eye. One moment life was fine in Japan and the next all hell broke loose. Tribulation comes on like a woman in travail. "Watch".
