Default Cancer from depleted uranium

This has just been received from another forum. Can anyone say if it is another urban legend, or should we all be taking eleutherococcus senticosus - Siberian ginseng?

EPIDEMIC FROM DU HAS BEGUN IN U.S.

By Dr. James Howenstine, MD.
April 6, 2006
NewsWithViews.com

In the year 2005 there were 175,000 new cases of lung cancer in the
United States. The months of January and February of 2006 have
already yielded 172,000 new cases of lung cancer in our nation. What
has lead to this shocking new development?

Second hand smoke exposure and cigarette smoking obviously can not


explain this dramatic rise in lung cancer. Following exposure to
radioactive iodine particulate debris in the air from shells and
bombs, between 2 to 5 years of time is needed to lead to the
appearance of malignancies. Our bombing of Afghanistan began in
October 2001 (four and a half years ago) and the new bombing in Iraq
began in March 2003 (exactly three years ago). Aerial bombs are more
effective than artillery shells in increasing airborne radioiodine
because they release more dust into the atmosphere. The radioactive
iodine increment from these bombings was registered in the UK in the
Aldermaston Report[1] released on Feb. 19, 2006.

The U.S. government has not released any information about the levels
of radioactivity being observed in the U.S. and the controlled media
in Europe and the U.S. has said nothing about the 4 genocidal nuclear
wars the United States and it?s British ally have foisted off on the
populace of the world. (Bosnia, Iraq twice and Afghanistan). The DU
wars surely reflect the population lowering program for the world
being implemented by the New World Order elitists (Tilateral
Commisson., Bilderbergers, Club of Rome, 33 rd degree Masons,
Illuminati, Council of Foreign Relations.)

Breathing radioactive particlulate matter has long been known to
cause lung cancer. Miners working in uranium mines and other types of
mining where radioactivity is an occupational hazard have a higher
incidence of lung cancer. This danger from airborne radioactive
iodine is greater than that found from cigarette smoking. The
radioactive iodine particles go directly to DNA which is ?trashed?.
There are no ways the human body can rid itself of the radioactive
particles so the health damage is permanent. This results in severe
health problems particularly malignancies which have no effective
therapies. Physicians in Bosnia are seeing patients present for care
with three simultaneous malignancies something never previously
reported in medicine.

Children in Iraq are dying in epidemic numbers from malignancies. In
most nations cancer in children is uncommon. This makes depleted
uranium shells and bombs an ideal vehicle to diminish the world
population. The absence of media exposure critical of this genocidal
program makes DU warfare a low risk program for lowering world
population. One of the attractive features of using radioactive
uranium for biologic warfare and population lowering is that there
are no known effective ways to heal an individual who develops a
malignancy after radioiodine iodine exposure.

A frightening aspect of depleted uranium warfare is that there is no
way to protect oneself from this hazard. Clothing and gas masks are
easily penetrated. The key persons running the New World Order are
brilliant planners. They would not want themselves to die from lung
cancer along with the rest of humanity. My guess is they have
discovered methods to protect themselves from developing lung cancer.
Certainly one has to be impressed with how effectively David
Rockefeller, Zignev Brezinski and Henry Kissinger appear to have
managed to avoid the infirmities of aging at least to outward
appearances.

I do not know if persons living in the Southern hemisphere are also
being exposed to radioiodine fallout. Recently Christopher Reeves
wife, Dana, died of lung cancer at age 44. She was a healthy non
smoker so her death appeared puzzling. The DU fallout may provide a
rational explanation.

Because prevailing winds have carried radioiodine dust to Europe and
probably the U.S. it appears that at least half the persons on planet
earth are currently breathing radioiodine. The topic of depleted
uranium bombs and shells will not be discussed in the media because
the world?s media is controlled by the New World Order elitists.
World wide public outrage could ruin their plans to rapidly lower the
world?s population by 90 % if this issue was publicly discussed.

When a biologic warfare agent like the borrelia burgdorfi spirochete
(Lyme Disease) turns out to spread person to person it becomes a
gigantic success. We all must breath to stay alive. With at least
half the persons on earth now breathing radioactive iodine the bio-
warfare scientists appear to have their second big winner. Expect
lung cancer deaths to rapidly increase worldwide

Yes!!!

Finally I hear from someone who is seeing what I see!

As a hospice nurse I tend to many with cancer. Our facility has a lot of lung cancer patients and not just most but almost all were never smokers!!

And lung cancer almost always mets to the brain or bone or both. They don't actually die from the tumor in the lung but from elsewhere.

I have one patient right now with lung ca with mets to the spine. He is on over 400mg of morphine a day to try to control the pain. Unbelievable! Generally our most painful patients use 20 to 40mg a day.

This suffering is terrible.

And yes, the cancer society keeps pushing that smoking is the primary cause of lung cancer. Don't you believe it for a minute. Its a dam lie and I think a tactic in a coverup.

Thanks arrow. I thought my post had been lost down here, but I am relieved to find it's not just another cyber-myth.
I phrased that badly - it would be re-assuring to our health it it had been a myth!
Maybe sales of Siberian ginseng will rocket. Take 5 - 7 grams a day for radio protection.

Wow... when I read this, I thought I'd be the only oppositional one. As soon as I saw Illuminati and 33rd degree Masons, that was all I had to hear. But before that I had my doubts, serious ones, as I know someone very close, who works in nuclear physics for our government. This person would have told me if such mass cancer rates were being caused by nuclear fallout. He has not. If anyone here knew what the Illuminati and the Masons are really all about, other than the cult tales that are spread about them, you would know that this is a farce.

First of all, let me ask you this. Going back the the alleged claims in that article....one only needs to look at one statement to determine the veracity of the claims:"Children in Iraq are dying in epidemic numbers from malignancies."

This is highly laughable. Why??? Back up again to this statement:

"Aerial bombs are more effective than artillery shells in increasing airborne radioiodine because they release more dust into the atmosphere."

Let's go back to third grade science class. The earth rotates!!! All that is above us in the atmosphere at any given moment, is moving away from us, actually we are moving away from it. Therefore, all this highly radioactive dust they are mentioning, is being spread around the globe. And the people in Iraq, where the bombing took place, are not exposed to it for any longer periods of time than anyone in any other country.

Even if they were.... why is it then, that only the Iraqi children are dying in epidemic numbers, and not all of the Iraqi people. If anything, adults are more susceptible to getting cancer than children, because their bodies are more aged, and they have been exposed to more toxins (lot's of arabic adults smoke too), therefore they are in poorer health than the children. Cancer is known to set up shop in an unhealthy body. Children are for the most part more healthy than adults.

So, how is it then, that only the children are dying in epidemic numbers? Good reason... how many of you would really care if it were the adult population instead of the children? Those adults could be suicide bombers and terrorists, right? There's no telling. But the children are the innocents. And we naturally have more sympathy and concern for the innocents of any society. Ergo, these horror stories are written to prey on the natural human compassion we all have for the innocents of society. They are written by the extremists and propagandists, who are looking to further their own cause.

The Masons have been a huge target of discrimination since the 1800's. Yet do any of you know who the Masons are??? What their real origins are? Do you know that our government is the USA was founded largely by Masons? That our Constitution that we all hold so dear, was written and signed by practicing Masons. Also, that George Washington and several of our other early, highly revered presidents were Masons. Our Capital building was blessed by a Masonic ritual? How many of you are aware of any of that? We don't even need to get into the Illuminati here.

Now let's back up to this statement:

"the controlled media in Europe and the U.S. has said nothing about the genocidal nuclear wars the United States and it's British ally have foisted off on the populace of the world"

What about the controlled history we were taught in school? Our history lessons were fashioned to suit the controlling interests, and falsified to meet that goal. History has been distorted throughout the ages, to the benefit of one political or religious faction after another. We have all been spoon fed bullshit throughout our lives. But just like two wrongs don't make a right, neither do two opposing propaganda stories.

The above story is fantasy. Not that cancer isn't on the increase. It is, and it has been for a long time before our troops went into Afghanistan and Iraq. I saw more people die from cancer ten to 15 years ago than I have recently. And why wouldn't we be dying of cancer at prolific rates? Our food, air, water, clothing, cleaning products, housing, cars and everything in our lives is full of toxins that are causing massive free radical damage once they enter our bodies. Cancer is on the rise and has been, but it is due to our lifestyles and our technologies, not the bombs we dropped overseas.

And if any of you ever hear me quote anything Dr James Howenstine reports, please slap me, for I've lost my mind, or was momentarily swayed by his propaganda.

Default iodine

Would supplementing with an iodine-rich food like kelp help if we were exposed to radioiodine?

"P.S. Xania, no amount of ginseng can prevent cancer from nuclear fallout. "
-------------------------------
That's true Shapshftr. There are some things we can't survive. But in the event of increased radiaation levels I would take eleuthero, not ginseng. See

Default spot in lung

They just found a spot in my uncle's lung. He will get more testing in a couple of weeks. He has never smoked.

So sorry about that, morning. Please let us know any progress. Is he open to ideas of self-treatment? IP6, B17, Graviola and all?

Sorry to say that I think this epidemic of lung cancer is here to stay for a while whatever the source may be from the posted article. I am sure the government is lying about something to us. I would not discredit Howenstien so fast. Even if he may have strange philosophies and political agenda he is the first person to report about the increase of lung cancer that is not related to smoking, as I have been seeing in my work daily.

He has my attention and I would like to hear more about what he has to say about it.

I do not exactly understand the connection he is making between, well here is the part I want to understand more about. Is there a way to research the following?. Anyone know how to go about it?

Lugols iodine should protect from depositing radioactive iodine in the tissues. If your iodine receptors are filled with the right stuff there will be no place for radioactive iodine to land. Lugol is essentially the same stuff as potassium iodide, what the government has you take if you are at risk for exposure. Radioactive iodine if it lands in the lungs, although I don't think there is much iodine naturally in the lungs, the particles could get in and not be able to get out, causing cancer just by their prolonged presence. In this case lugols may not assist. It will protect the thyroid and other iodine storage areas like the breasts and prostate.

Soaring birth deformities and child cancer rates in Iraq
By James Cogan
10 May 2005

Back to screen version | Send this link by email | Email the author

Iraqi doctors are making renewed efforts to bring to the world’s attention the growth in birth deformities and cancer rates among the country’s children. The medical crisis is being directly blamed on the widespread use of depleted uranium (DU) munitions by the US and British forces in southern Iraq during the 1991 Gulf War, and the even greater use of DU during the 2003 invasion.

The rate of birth defects, after increasing ten-fold from 11 per 100,000 births in 1989 to 116 per 100,000 in 2001, is soaring further. Dr Nawar Ali, a medical researcher into birth deformities at Baghdad University, told the UN’s Integrated Regional Information Networks (IRIN) last month: “There have been 650 cases [birth deformities] in total since August 2003 reported in government hospitals. That is a 20 percent increase from the previous regime. Private hospitals were not included in the study, so the number could be higher.”

His colleague, Dr Ibrahim al-Jabouri, reported: “In my experiments we have found some cases where the mother and father were suffering from pollution from weapons used in the south and we believe that it is affecting newborn babies in the country.”

The director of the Central Teaching Hospital in Baghdad, Wathiq Ibrahim, said: “We have asked for help from the government to make a more profound study on such cases as it is affecting thousands of families.”

The rise in birth defects is matched by a continuing increase in the incidence of childhood cancers.

Six years ago, the College of Medicine at Basra University carried out a study into the rate of cancer among children under the age of 15 in southern Iraq from 1976 to 1999. It revealed a horrific change between 1990 and 1999. In the province of Basra, the incidence of cancer of all types rose by 242 percent, while the rate of leukaemia among children rose 100 percent. Children living in the area were falling ill with cancer at the rate of 10.1 per 100,000. In districts where the use of DU had been the most concentrated, the rate rose to 13.2 per 100,000.

The results were cited at the time in campaigns to end the UN-imposed and US-enforced sanctions against Iraq, which were held responsible for the death of as many as 500,000 Iraqi children from malnutrition and inadequate medical treatment.

The study noted: “Most doctors and scientists agree that even mild radiation is dangerous and increases the risk of cancer. The health risk becomes much greater once the [DU] projectile has been fired. After they have been fired, the broken shells release uranium particles. The airborne particles enter the body easily. The uranium then deposits itself in bones, organs and cells. Children are especially vulnerable because their cells divide rapidly as they grow. In pregnant women, absorbed uranium can cross the placenta into the bloodstream of the foetus.

“In addition to its radioactive dangers, uranium is chemically toxic, like lead, and can damage the kidneys and lungs. Perhaps, the fatal epidemic of swollen abdomens among Iraqi children is caused by kidney failure resulting from uranium poisoning. Whatever the effect of the DU shells, it is made worse by malnutrition and poor health conditions....

“Iraq holds the United States and Britain legally and morally responsible for the grave health and environmental impact of the use of DU ...” (A version of the report is available at: http://www.iacenter.org/depleted/du_iraq.htm).

Terrible as these results were, the last six years have witnessed a further rise in the number of children under 15 falling ill with cancer in Iraq. The rate has now reached 22.4 per 100,000—more than five times the 1990 rate of 3.98 per 100,000.

Dr Janan Hassan of the Basra Maternity and Childrens Hospital told IRIN in November 2004 that as many as 56 percent of all cancer patients in Iraq were now children under 5, compared with just 13 percent 15 years earlier. “Also,” he said, “it is notable that the number of babies born with defects is rising astonishingly. In 1990, there were seven cases of babies born with multiple congenital anomalies. This has gone up to as high as 224 cases in the past three years.”

The statistics point to the long-term consequences of depleted uranium contamination. Munitions containing an estimated 300 tonnes of DU were unleashed by coalition forces in southern Iraq in 1991. A decade after the war, DU shell holes are still 1,000 times more radioactive than the normal level of background radiation. The surrounding areas are still 100 times more radioactive. Experts surmise that fine uranium dust has been spread by the wind, contaminating swathes of the surrounding region, including Basra, which is some 200 kilometres away from sites where large numbers of DU shells were fired.

A 1997 study into the cancer rate among Iraqi soldiers who fought in the Basra area during the 1991 Gulf War found a statistically significant increase in the rate at which they were stricken with lymphomas, leukaemia, and lung, brain, gastrointestinal, bone and liver cancers, as compared to personnel who had not fought in the south. One in four of the American personnel who fought in first Iraq war—more than 150,000 people—are also suffering a range of medical disorders collectively described as “Gulf War Syndrome”. While the US military denies there is any relationship, exposure to depleted uranium is one of the factors blamed by veterans and medical researchers.

Somewhere between 1,000 and 3,000 tonnes of DU was expended during the three-week war in 2003. Unlike 1991, however, where most of the fighting took place outside major population centres, the 2003 invasion witnessed the wholesale bombardment of targets inside densely-populated cities with DU shells. Christian Science Monitor journalist Scott Peterson registered radiation on a simple Geiger counter at levels some 1,900 times the normal background rate in parts of Baghdad in May 2003. The city has a population of six million.

Given that it was two to four years after the 1991 war before cancer and birth defect rates began to rise dramatically, the fear among medical specialists is that Iraq will face an epidemic of cancers by the end of the decade, under conditions where the medical system, devastated by years of sanctions and war, is unable to cope with the existing crisis.

Dr Amar, the deputy head of the Al-Sadr Teaching Hospital in Basra, one of the main hospitals treating Iraqi cancer patients, told the Sydney Morning Herald on April 29: “We don’t have drugs to treat tumours. I have a patient with tumours who is unconscious and I don’t have drugs or a bed in which to treat him. I have two women with advanced ovarian cancer but I can give them only minimum doses of only some of the drugs they need.

“Two or three days ago we had to cancel all surgery because we had no gauze and no anaesthetics. Our wards are like stables for horses, not humans. We can’t properly isolate patients or manage their diets. We don’t have proper laboratory facilities....

“If you are sick don’t come to this hospital for treatment. It is collapsing around us. We’re going down in a heap.”
