Death from Cardiovascular Disease up 25% in Colorado between 2010-2011 and 2015-2016


Do you ever read something in the news and have an immediate and fearful apprehension, a sense of foreboding?

MASS MORTALITY EVENTS INCREASING

I have been documenting mass mortality events for animals and elevated mortality statistics for people in the US since 2011. For example, see my posts here covering news reports of animal anomalies and shrinking human lifespans:
http://majiasblog.blogspot.com/2013/10/animal-anomalies-is-fukushima-daiichi.html
http://majiasblog.blogspot.com/2016/12/americans-lifespan-is-shrinking-experts.html 


Recent news that Colorado's cardiovascular disease death rate went up 25% between 2010-2011 and 2015-2016 is in my opinion absolutely alarming, especially because many of these deaths occurred in people who were in their 40s and 50s and Colorado has some of the lowest rates of obesity and diabetes in the country.

The WSJ news report on this increase in death rate "blames the victims" once again, ludicrously attributing diet and lack of physical activity in middle-aged people for causing a 25% increase in mortality over a 5 year period!

This is absolutely absurd. Although diet is most definitely linked to health, explaining a 25% increase in deaths over a 5 year period in terms of diet - when no significant dietary changes are identified - makes no sense.

WHAT HAS CHANGED?

What other factors have changed? The biggest factors that I see changing in the 5 year period between 2010-2011 and 2015-2016 are the fallout from the Fukushima disaster and increased fracking and fracking emissions in CO and across the country.

If you don't think Fukushima contaminated the US, read the US Geological Survey results of deposition testing for radionuclides in the US west:


The US received considerable fallout but the nuclear authorities reassured the public that there was "no risk," after all they had been experimenting with testing radiation effects on the US population since the early 1950s.


FUKUSHIMA FALLOUT?

Here are key findings reported in the WSJ article concerning the alarming increase in cardiovascular mortality:
Betsy McKay and Paul Overberg | Jan. 14, 2020 Heart Disease Strikes Back Across the U.S., Even in Healthy Places. The Wall Street Journal https://www.wsj.com/articles/heart-disease-strikes-back-across-the-u-s-even-in-healthy-places-11579015880

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.—Colorado is ranked as one of the nation’s healthiest states. It often doesn’t feel that way to David Rosenbaum.

The Colorado Springs cardiologist regularly sees men and women in their 30s and 40s with heart problems, such as high blood pressure, an irregular heart rhythm, heart attacks. A visit from a young patient was rare when he started practicing there 17 years ago. Not anymore.

…In the Journal’s analysis, three metro areas east of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains—Colorado Springs, Fort Collins and Greeley—recorded some of the biggest increases. Death rates in each rose almost 25%. The three cities boast robust access to exercise and health care

…Health officials cite a number of factors threatening to rob Colorado of its historically healthy status. The state’s adult obesity and diabetes rates, though still the lowest in the nation, have risen over the past several years. High blood pressure, drug and alcohol use, stress and a lack of physical activity—even in an exercise-mad state—also play a role, they say. These factors also increase risk for people who are genetically disposed to heart disease, doctors say.
A 25% increase in mortality among younger people over a 5 year period should set up warning alarms but instead the journal is blaming victims.

There are other alarming trends - indicators of failing human and ecological health - I've been watching, as illustrated by declining sperm rates in humans:
Hagai Levine, Niels Jรธrgensen, Anderson Martino-Andrade, Jaime Mendiola, Dan Weksler-Derri, Irina Mindlis, Rachel Pinotti, and Shanna H. Swan (2017). Temporal trends in sperm count: a systematic review and meta-regression analysis. Human Reproduction Update, pp. 1–14, 2017. doi:10.1093/humupd/dmx022

ABSTRACT: There was a significant decline in SC between 1973 and 2011 among Unselected Western (−1.38; −2.02 to −0.74; P < 0.001) and among Fertile Western (−0.68; −1.31 to −0.05; P = 0.033), while no significant trends were seen among Unselected Other and Fertile Other. Among Unselected Western studies, the mean SC [SPERM CONCENTRATION] declined, on average, 1.4% per year with an overall decline of 52.4% between 1973 and 2011..

Trends for TSC [TOTAL SPERM COUNT) and SC were similar, with a steep decline among Unselected Western (−5.33 million/year, −7.56 to −3.11; P < 0.001), corresponding to an average decline in mean TSC of 1.6% per year and overall decline of 59.3%. Results changed minimally in multiple sensitivity analyses, and there was no statistical support for the use of a nonlinear model…

WIDER IMPLICATIONS: This comprehensive meta-regression analysis reports a significant decline in sperm counts (as measured by SC and TSC) between 1973 and 2011, driven by a 50–60% decline among men unselected by fertility from North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Because of the significant public health implications of these results, research on the causes of this continuing decline is urgently needed….
This study was a META-ANALYSIS so it looked at the results of 7,500 empirical studies on sperm counts and therefore came to its conclusions based on evaluation of the results of those 7,500 studies.

Most, albeit not all, of those studies reviewed in this meta-analysis address people of European descent. The paper notes that relatively few fertility studies are available for people in the global south.

Here is an empirical study of declining sperm quality and count among Chinese men:
Chuan Huang, Baishun Li, Kongrong Xu, Dan Liu, Jing Hu, Yang Yang, HongChuan Nie, Liqing Fan, Wenbing Zhu, ( ). Decline in semen quality among 30,636 young Chinese men from 2001 to 2015Fertility and Sterility, 107(1), 83–88.e2 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.fertnstert.2016.09.035
Patient(s)
A total of 30,636 young adult men who applied to be sperm donors at the Hunan Province Human Sperm Bank of China in 2001–2015 were included in the study.
Intervention(s)  Physical examination and analysis of blood and semen samples.  
Main Outcome Measure(s)

Semen parameters, such as semen volume, sperm concentration, total sperm count, progressively motile sperm count, sperm progressive motility, sperm morphology, and round cells.  
Result(s)

Many of the semen parameters showed a decreasing trend over the 15-year observation period. The sperm concentration and percentage of sperm with normal morphology decreased from 68 × 106/mL to 47 × 106/mL and from 31.8% to 10.8%, respectively. Although sperm progressive motility showed irregular variation, the progressively motile sperm count decreased from 34 × 106 to 21 × 106 over the 15-year period. Furthermore, the rate of qualified donors fell from 55.78% in 2001 to 17.80% in 2015, and the rate for 2015 was approximately threefold lower than the corresponding rates in 2001.  
Conclusion(s)

The semen quality among young Chinese men has declined over a period of 15 years, especially in terms of sperm concentration, total sperm count, sperm progressive motility, and normal morphology.
What is causing this alarming decline in human sperm quality and quantity?

There are no doubt multiple variables that impact sperm quality, ranging from "lifestyle" factors such as diet, stress, and smoking to environmental factors, such as industrial-agricultural chemicals.

What is strangely missing from the acknowledged lists of culprits responsible for our looming reproductive collapse are the toxic and radioactive elements that we have unleashed upon the earth including lead, arsenic, mercury, and radioactive isotopes, particularly those that bioaccumulate in the testes (such as plutonium) and that impact the endocrine system (such as radioiodine).

Radioactive elements internalized inside the body emit gamma rays in close proximity to cells!

I've written extensively at my blog about the concerns of twentieth century scientists and physicians who studies the effects of ionizing radiation on reproduction. here are a couple of highly relevant samples:

http://majiasblog.blogspot.com.au/2012/06/systematic-study-in-first-bear-study-on.html#comment-form

http://majiasblog.blogspot.com/2013/05/bear-report-1956.html
These links address the 1956 Biological Effects of Atomic Radiation Report. The Genetics Subcommittee's contribution to this report outlined the potential for ionizing radiation to lead to sudden collapses in reproductive fitness due to accumulated germline cell damage.

Too much genetic and/or epigenetic damage to germline cells promises the collapse of our species.

I've previously posted about the potential relationship between exposure to ionizing radiation and de novo mutations linked with autism. Children with autism have been found to have more de novo mutations than parents and unaffected siblings. What causes de novo mutations? Well, do novo mutations and epigenetic changes can be caused by myriad genotoxins but exposure ti ionizing radiation is among the most potent mutagens known.

The relationship between autism and ionizing radiation has not been studied, despite the sharp INCREASE IN AUTISM INCIDENTS in CA after Fukushima.

  2. "Do you ever read something in the news and have an immediate and fearful apprehension, a sense of foreboding?" Yes, and almost invariably the something turns out to be flawed in some way. Bad data, poorly presented, etc. Possibly these individuals have come from bad environments outside of CO. ]

    2. Two weeks ago 2 white supremecist thugs, came out of nowhere and beat me to a pulp. Have been in the hospital since then. The cops are doing nothing to get them. I am a disabled law abiding citizen. That is todays murica. Bobos like nadesan and the nazi scum, that took over enenews do not care. What a horrible nightmare murica has become. Bobos like nadesan think that they are above all this evil because, they are superior.

      i ask “how can so many people in the world not know or care about nuclear and fukushima?” Is the propaganda machine that good or is it becuase most people are pathological or cowardly and selfish, or is it all of this. u talk to the most destitute in the streets of evil shithole murica, they say, ” yes i know about fukushima.” u talk to the asslickers. they make fun of u and call u a conspiracy nut. screw them. when they get leukemia or thyroid or colon or pancreatic cancer and see how nuclear has made everyone sik they will have a glimmer of reality , they will not be evil and smug . but it will be too late. The nazis and fascista that support the nuclear insanity now and this dark shroud of greed and corruption and nuclearist genocide can justify anything. the evil pathological clowns that said they cared about fuku but that now support reactors blowing up meganuclear and military arms build up and the rest of the evil. they have their blacklists theyy brag about it on twitter and their evil websites. the will have the opposition beaten to death. they will they will round up all oppostion to have tribunals and kill and torture and hang all them

    3. I don't believe I have ever come across a white nationalist or white supremacist. How do you know they weren't just two gang members looking for someone who is against nuclear energy?
      In any case you now know why some persons apply for conceal carry permits or at least practice a martial art. Time to toughen up and not depend on cops. Stay out of dark alleys and places with entrances from nowhere! Good luck.

    4. They were white supremacists. One had a swastika tatoo. U were not there. At least u have some words of encouragement and, u r right in some ways. Things are pretty messed up in america. I have been through stray bullets in Los Angeles and other things. I have a concussion and cracked pelvis. Maybe it is not worth it any more

  3. This society is degraded from industrial pollution. It is not sustainable. Nuclear pollution is the worst. It is making people very ill.
    It is a time where cities and regions are resorvoirs for radionuclide and chemical pollutants.
    It soes not matter how long a person has been in that polluted region because of the concentration of pollutants there.
    I saw a kid of immigrants that was born here, with downs syndrome. It was de novo. Her brother has autism. Young children. Relatively young parents. Mother from Honduras. Father from Mexico.
    Their religion tells them to be fruitful and multiply. Their Preachers tell them, abortion is evil. The air they breath, the water they drink, the contaminated fruit they eat makes them have damaged children. It damages their health while they are trying to raise those children and cope.
    They have to contaminate everything more, to make more things. More chemicals and radionuclide pollution so their bosses can make more money. The immigrant family can then get pittance raises.
    Pittance raises that will never cover them, or their childrens growing needs. Prosperity!

  5. Nuclear winter scenarios, after a small nuclear war or even a larger nuclear war, seem unlikely. Nuke war will cause several nuclear reactors to blowup and meltdown. Nuclear war will cause thousands of tons of nuclear waste fuel pools and cannisters, to catch fire. These events will send thousands of tons of the most pyrophoric toxic substances known, into the air and atmosphere. That is, along with the fallout of the exploded, nuclear-bombs. The resultant firestorms from the flood of deadly pyrophoric radionuclide, will burn everything that is combustible . The firsetorms will deplete most oxygen, kill everything and make the world uninhabitable for any life. They have never talked about this.

  6. Majia, what else has changed is that in 2011 we were at solar maximum, now we are at a severe minimum. And we have a modern period maximum of Galactic Cosmic Rays. Colorado having less atmosphere will have more impact of GCRs.

    Important stuff. Bone up here. Lots of this stuff at Nukepro too

    3. You must care in ways. Fukushima is so awful. Lots of lonely and distraught people on the internet, who care about Fukushima. Why do you not help sue , to get some reactors closed, especially ones that threaten you and your loved ones, if you have that much money?

    2. This is a time for people to work together.Anger, hate and divisiveness, can only make it harder or make the fukushima and nuclear crisis's worse. Dr Nadesan has contributed a lot. Right now i am very ill and hurt. People that are hateful will have their space. I pray that people can work together to help each other and help the children.

    1. Nuclear Waste Storage

      "Heat released by a spent fuel assembly
      A uranium oxide (UOX) fuel assembly weighs approximately 500 kg. Five years after being unloaded from the reactor, it emits heat equivalent to around a dozen 100 watt light bulbs. This heat release steadily tails off, falling to 85 watts after 300 years. Spent fuel assemblies must be cooled prior to disposal,either in a pool or in dry silos."
      https://www.radioactivity.eu.com/site/pages/Spent_Fuel_Heat.htm


      A dozen 100 watt light bulbs is quite a bit of heat actually in an 8 foot by 5 foot nuclear waste canister.

      There is a full spectrum of alpha emitters, beta emitters, and gamma emitters from the many radionuclides present in high level, nuclear waste canisters.
      The radioactive material emits radiation that interacts with the canister-case materials and other materials in the cask, to create gas.  Any water present will generate hydrogen gas, from radiation attacking water molecules.

      There are the corrosion and embrittling aspects of the radiation interaction, with the steel shells that  contain the waste.


      Stainless Steel May Not be the Best material for Storing Nuclear Waste

      https://newatlas.com/energy/stainless-steel-storing-nuclear-waste/

      The focus of Nuclear waste storage ,other than cheap Holtec canisters, is to seal the highlevel isotopes in ceramic or glass vitrification and, seal that in a Stainless Steel cask. Holtec does not even bother, to vitrify the isotopes they put in casks.
      "In the real-life scenario, the glass or ceramic waste forms would be in close contact with stainless steel canisters,” says Xiaolei. “Under specific conditions, the corrosion of stainless steel will go crazy. It creates a super-aggressive environment that can corrode surrounding materials.”
      They found that the steel interacted with the glass or ceramic to produce severe and localized corrosion that both damaged the steel and corroded and cracked the glass and ceramics. According to the team, this is because the iron in stainless steel has a chemical affinity with the silicon in glass, accelerating corrosion."

      Nuclear waste storage, is a fantasy world of convenient omission
