(Veterans Today) From 1951 to 1970 the United States Government conducted over 1100 Atomic tests in Nevada whose radiation fallout has resulted in over 200,000 deaths throughout the country ~ instant karma for the over 200,000 deaths from the Atomic bombing of Hiroshima in 1945 and now Fukushima is slowly radiating the West Coast. In less than 70 years, Karmic law has once again asserted that those who ride the forces of evil will eventually be crushed by the very same forces: Allen L Roland, Ph.D
American military forces participating in Nevada Atomic testing
I was only 11 years old when The United States dropped the first Atomic bomb on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945. I remember the moment well for I was sitting across the street at the Thompson Club, Nahant waiting for my twin brother to join me to play baseball. Suddenly I felt an immense sense of collective loss ~ and then a short time later my twin brother came running from across the street telling me that we had dropped an Atomic bomb on Japan. Even at that young age, I somehow sensed we had released an evil powerful genie that could eventually destroy ourselves and the planet.
Power corrupts, absolute atomic power absolutely morally corrupts, particularly when it is in the hands of the Military/Industrial complex with the power to control and destroy the world ~ whereas human life eventually becomes collateral damage as it did with the Atomic testing during the sixties in Nevada.
The extent of the Nevada testing most probably included the development of the Davy Crockett tactical nuclear warheads which have been linked to many false flag events including 9/11. See VT Article http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2014/08/27/376708/iaea-us-not-iran-the-problem/
Here’s a chart of the radiation fallout pattern from the Nevada testing ~ please note that it extends well across the country while compensation is only being offered to a few states bordering Nevada.
As Wikipedia reports ~ Downwinders refers to individuals and communities who are exposed to radioactive contamination or nuclear fallout from atmospheric or underground nuclear weapons testing, and nuclear accidents. Currently, this article focuses on incidents in the United States, or caused by its weapons testing.
The impact of nuclear contamination on an individual is generally estimated as the result of the dose of radiation received and the duration of exposure, using the Linear No-Threshold Model (LNT). The hypothesis was adopted for regulatory purposes about 65 years ago and has no scientific evidence to support its validity in the years since then. It is vehemently rejected by the health and epidemiological communities in the face of abundant data refuting its validity. Sex, age, race, culture, occupation, class, location, and simultaneous exposure to additional environmental toxins are also significant, but often overlooked, factors that contribute to the health effects on a particular “downwind” community

Here’s some color film footage of atomic bomb tests in Nevada – especially the downwinders as well as hundreds of soldiers being exposed to high levels of radiation. 5 minute video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srbMbqlLsxo
The United States Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) is a federal statute providing for the monetary compensation of people, including atomic veterans, who contracted cancer and a number of other specified diseases as a direct result of their exposure to atmospheric nuclear testing undertaken by the United States during the Cold War, or their exposure to high levels of radon while doing uranium mining. The 1990 act provided the following remunerations:
- $50,000 to individuals residing or working “downwind” of the Nevada Test Site
- $75,000 for workers participating in atmospheric nuclear weapons tests
- $100,000 for uranium miners, millers, and ore transporters
In all cases there are additional requirements which must be satisfied (proof of exposure, establishment of duration of employment, establishment of certain medical conditions, etc.).
In some cases, however, it was extremely difficult for people to receive their compensation, especially in the case of the widows of uranium miners. Because many uranium miners were Native Americans, they did not have standard marriage licenses required to establish a legal connection to the deceased. In 1999, revisions were published in the Federal Register to assist in making award claims. See Downwinders article ~ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Downwinders
On April 18, 2013, H.R. 1645: The Radiation Exposure Compensation Act Amendments of 2013 was introduced in Congress and promptly referred to committee with virtually zero chance of being enacted. There have currently been no votes related to this bill ~ https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/hr1645
The yellow states on this RECA chart are still virtually uncompensated for their exposure to radiation from over 1100 Atomic tests due to Congressional inaction or lack of public outcry. In 1980, People magazine revealed some consequences of continental nuclear testing for American citizens. The magazine disclosed that of some 220 cast and crew who filmed a 1956 film, The Conqueror, on location near St. George, Utah, (over 120 miles from Atomic test sites) ninety-one had come down with cancer, with an unheard of 41 per cent morbidity rate.Of these, forty-six had died of cancer by 1980. Among the victims were John Wayne and Susan Hayward, the stars of the film.
Color film footage of atomic bomb tests with active duty military personnel at Camp Desert Rock, Nevada Test Site, Nevada, shows soldiers in foxholes as nuclear detonation occurs nearby; light and shockwaves; blowing dust; soldiers climbing out of foxholes and running towards mushroom cloud. Some of this footage is familiar by virtue of having been seen in the film Atomic Cafe. Many soldiers who were present were exposed to high levels of radiation ~ and soon to be joined by countless civilians downwind ~ who were also assured by their government that there was nothing to fear.
