The following file possibly accounts for the plethora of new

diseases and health problems that seem to have appeared over the

past 30 years. It follows the grave warnings given Walter Russell

in his book ATOMIC SUICIDE. A friend recently told us of the first

ATOMIC explosion which occurred in San Francisco Bay at the Port of

Chicago Naval Station! This has been kept hidden for many years and

the ramifications of the coverup are still being pursued. We hope

to have a file on this on KeelyNet in the near future.


Immune System Defects from Nuclear Bomb Testing

In the 8 February 1992 issue of THE BRITISH MEDICAL JOURNAL, R. K.

Whyte, a Canadian pediatrician, reports some disturbing evidence

from official government sources. Ingested fission products from

nuclear weapons tests conducted in the atmosphere during the 1950s

had caused in excess of 320,000 infant deaths in the United States

and England by 1980.

Whyte shows that the increase in neonatal deaths in those years can

be explained only by exposure to radioactive iodine and strontium

injected into the atmosphere by the superpowers’ early nuclear

testing programmes.

Whyte’s findings validate predictions made in 1958 by the Soviet

physicist Andrei Sakharov and cited in his recently published

MEMOIRS. Sakharov was concerned, however, not only with the

immediate consequences of exposure to low-level radiation but with

the latent effects of that radiation on the immune system, effects

not considered in the Whyte paper.

Sakharov, the most eminent and authoritative nuclear scientist to

reveal the official misgivings about the health consequences of

bomb-testing kept secret by all parties in the arms race, calculated

that the tests would ultimately kill millions of people worldwide,

immediately and over time.

Sakharov’s theory offers the first explanation of the great

epidemiological mysteries of our times. The decline in mortality

rates for infants and old people in the USA and the advanced Western

European countries flattened out during the years of atmospheric

bomb tests. There was only a moderate rate of decline after the

partial test-ban treaty was signed in 1963.

In the 1980s both routing and accidental emissions from military and

civilian reactors continued, and mortality rates are again on the

rise in the USA, UK, and France.

According to the UN ANNUAL DEMOGRAPHIC YEARBOOK, in these same

countries the death rate for 25-44 year olds, presumably the

healthiest and most productive component of the labour force, has

been rising since 1983 for the first time since World War II. The

Atlanta Center for Disease Control acknowledged this anomalous trend

among American males.

In the September 1990 issue of THE AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PUBLIC HEALTH

it was admitted that in states with high AIDS mortality rates, there

are “associated” abnormal increases in “other immune defects”,

including septicemia, pneumonia, pulmonary tuberculosis, diseases of

the central nervous system, heart disease, and blood disorders.

Persons in this age group were born between 1945 and 1965. They

were, therefore, most heavily exposed IN UTERO to the latent effects

of bomb-test radiation that most worried Sakharov. The consequent

harm to their developing hormonal and immune systems would emerge

later when, as young adults with impaired immune responses, they

would encounter the new strains of sexually transmitted viruses and

bacteria that Sakharov predicted would also result from radiation-

induced mutation.

Particularly after the Chernobyl disaster, we can no longer continue

to ignore the radiation link to immune-deficiency diseases foreseen

by Sakharov. Sakharov complains that “to the best of my knowledge,

no notice of these publications of mine was taken in the West,

probably because my name was still quite unknown….Although this is

no longer true in my case, the poor use Western journalists make of

their archives and reference works…..still amazes me.”
