Officials claim no danger
(INTELLIHUB) — Dangerous radioactive particles have been detected throughout at least seven different European countries including Finland, Norway, Czech Republic, Germany, Spain, and France.
The traces of Iodine-131 were found weeks ago but the public has only learned of this shocking development recently, with officials in multiple European countries downplaying the possible risks and legitimatizing why they kept the public in the dark about them.
According to a report in the Sun newspaper, the radioactive particles could have been released by a nuclear reactor, a medical facility, or even a Russian nuclear submarine.
For their part, officials are attempting to quell any fear the public may have with the head of emergency preparedness at the Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority Astrid Liland telling the Barents Observer that the health risk was supposedly very low.
“We do measure small amounts of radioactivity in air from time to time because we have very sensitive measuring equipment,” Liland claimed.
“The measurements at Svanhovd in January were very, very low. So were the measurements made in neighbouring countries, like Finland. The levels raise no concern for humans or the environment. Therefore, we believe this had no news value.”
That’s right, so-called authorities are just straight up claiming that radioactive particles raise NO concern for human beings or the environment!
Interestingly, the United States seems to be at least partially concerned after recently sending U.S. Air Force WC-135C Constant Phoenix, or the “sniffer”, to the United Kingdom.

According to a report in the Aviationist, “Effluent gasses are gathered by two scoops on the sides of the fuselage, which in turn trap fallout particles on filters. The mission crews have the ability to analyze the fallout residue in real-time, helping to confirm the presence of nuclear fallout and possibly determine the characteristics of the warhead involved.”
The WC-135 can carry up to 33 personal but the crew is usually kept to a minimum during missions to lessen overall levels of radioactive exposure.
While no one knows where exactly the radioactive elements recorded across Europe came from, when you consider the history of radiation related disasters one can imagine that if the situation was actually truly dangerous officials would most likely cover it up as they have done time and time again in the past.
Unsurprisingly, most of the corporate media hasn’t even covered this important information, instead opting to keep the public in the dark while continuing their 24-7 anti-Trump disinformation campaign.
