From Fukushima to Ft. Calhoun
The Myths And The Reality
How This Is Affecting You and Your Family Now!

Japan's Nuclear Plants to Nebraska Ft. Calhoun Plant. The Seminar will include researchers, health care experts, scholars, individuals personally affected
 by Fukushima as well as a local Ft. Calhoun plant analyst. After a presentation of the current situation and what measures you can personally take, the formal presentation will be followed by a Round-Table, discussion and Q & A....


This seminar will tell you what the actual situation is, from Fukushima to Ft. Calhoun, what you need to know, and most importantly, what specific measures you can take to protect yourself and your family. The seminar will include presenting a detailed Protocol of Care that will provide radiation protection [all of which you can easily obtain on your own on the web] and will also distribute a dosimeter radiation badge for each attendee to provide a personal continuous monitoring of your exposure to any radiation. 
The Fukushima Nuclear Plants in Japan suffered a complete melt down in 2011. The resulting ongoing catastrophe represents a world-class threat that Japan's former ambassador described this way: "If Unit 4 collapses ... that will be the most unprecedented crisis that man has ever experienced. ... not only will Japan lie in ruin, but the entire world will also face serious damages." World class nuclear expert Arnold Gunderson says a 7.0 earthquake could cause the structure to collapse. Scientists say that there is a 70% chance of a magnitude 7.0 earthquake hitting Fukushima in a given year, and a 98% chance within the next 3 years. Meanwhile, at Omaha's nearby Ft. Calhoun nuclear plant, it remains closed due to continuous safety issues which have not as yet been resolved. The most recent former Chairman of the Nuclear Regulatory Agency states that this [and the other US nuclear plants] are fatally flawed and should   be closed.
