JAMES MADISON QUOTE - 1822

"A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives."

TVA CEO - BILL "DaNuke" JOHNSON


                    "There is no safe dose of radiation." Dr. Ian Fairlie
During 'normal' operations, nuclear power plants release radioactive poisons into our air and water – poisons that are known to cause genetic mutations, birth defects and cancer, especially in children. This is not medical-grade radiation, but some of the most toxic poisons known to man, poisons that build up in our gene pool and our food chain.

TVA BOARD MEETING HIGHLIGHTS


Clean nuclear power ? A total of 94,777 unique individual nuclear workers sick, dead or dying are represented by the 160,322 nuclear worker cases reported since the 2001 Energy Employees Occupational Illness Program Act for nuclear workers. The site link listed below is updated weekly. Prior to the 2001 passage date nuclear worker sickness,death and suffering of employees and familes was kept secret.The current statistics do not include all of the nuclear fuel sites nor reactor sites in the United States where employee contamination has sickened and killed workers. The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Program was codified in 2001 http://www.dol.gov/owcp/energy/regs/compliance/weeklystats.htm
Contamination events at nuclear sites are not followed up on by the NRC and published for public review as to outcomes of contaminated patients. .
