Debunked: EPA Allowing Lethal Radioactivity in Drinking Water

From Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

EPA literally wants you to DIE from radiation

Adams concludes later in the article that:

http://www.naturalnews.com/054537_radiation_in_water_EPA_limits_radioactive_elements.html

I am starting to get used to looking past Mike Adams’ usual hysterical claims to get to their source. It seems pretty clear upon closer examination that the EPA is developing a contingency plan for a potential disaster.

The actual policy document mentioned by Adams, “Draft Protective Action Guide (PAG) for Drinking Water after a Radiological Incident,” is attached.

The PAG includes exposure guidelines for water consumption.

It does not mention radioactive Iodine-131.

The PAG draft originally comes from Executive Order 12656 (1988). The main focus of the older document is disaster preparation.

http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/codification/executive-order/12656.html

During a “radiological incident,” the EPA’s responsibility is determining acceptable levels of contamination in water after an emergency, specifically in the time involving cleanup efforts.

What constitutes a “radiological incident” has changed since the Cold War in the eighties. It now includes terrorist acts as well as disasters similar to Fukishima.

The intent of a Protective Action Guide is made clear in the proposed policy

https://www.epa.gov/radiation/protective-action-guides-pags

The PAG does allow for radiation levels that are higher than those allowed under the National Primary Drinking Water Regulations.

The Department of Energy provides good context on a range of normal annual radiation dosages.

The EPA is also soliciting public comment on the draft PAG throughout July.

Iodine-131 is the first isotope listed on the Fukushima wiki. It is also not the worst on the list by any stretch it's 8 day half-life makes it less troublesome than say Caesium-137 with it's 30 year half-life and high solubility.

Thanks.

Where is Mike Adams getting his "over 3,000 times" increase?

I found an earlier reference to these numbers in a website called Food and Water Watch.

https://www.foodandwaterwatch.org/n...increase-radioactivity-allowed-drinking-water

But the PAG cited has no such figures

they were your links. i just formed different questions when reading your OP. Like "why?" and 'what are the PAG levels for a radiological emergency NOW?'. since NN et al, keep saying 3000% higher, i thought 'higher than what? then everyday healthy non-emergency levels?'. The answer of course is YES.

The latest PAG for nuclear/radiological disaster is the 1992 one [page 6-1]. And there are NO levels recommended for drinking water. So technically we were REALLY unprotected up until now. Presuming of course this proposal is actually accepted and put into use.

@MikeG oh btw, one of the epa links i was reading specifically said these protocols would only be for certain large scale situations, like Fukishima, where water was SCARCE. But then i 'lost' which link it was (actually im too lazy to go refind it).

So it doesnt sound at all to me like they WANT people to drink the water. They also had some potassium inhibitor recommended in such cases. Must be like the stuff Infowars is always trying to sell for Fukishima. So anyway, certainly doesnt sound like they in anyway WANT to poison us or allow consumption of contaminated water if at all preventable.

I think that's exactly right. The EPA is talking about an emergency where water can't be shipped to a location in adequate quantities.

If you look at the bottom of the Natural News article, it looks like they also have a solution ready to sell:

the Natural News article, it looks like they also have a solution ready to sell:
? how did Mike Adams get his hands on uranium?
( i dont know what cesium and strontium are and the Berkey people dont mention them as far as i can find:
View attachment 19827

I dont know about you but i wouldnt trust Mike Adams as far as i could throw him. I think i'll wait for Berkey to do tests and say their filters make the water safe. (well, i lie, if i have uranium in my water im moving in with my brother 1,000 miles away, until the emergency is fully remedied).
