North Hollywood High School Nuclear Radiation Test to see how far gamma rays penetrates a school which is still in use to this day!

EXPERIMENTAL EVALUATION OF THE FALLOUT-RADIATION PROTECTION PROVIDED BY SELECTED STRUCTURES IN THE LOS ANGELES AREA February 26, 1963

“An experimental study designed to provide a basis for estimating protection against fallout radiation was conducted on four diversified structures in the Los Angeles, Calif., area. This study was sponsored by the Civil Effects Test Operations (CETO), Division of Biology and Medicine, U. S. Atomic Energy Commission. The four buildings studied were (1) the Laboratory of Nuclear Medicine and Radiation Biology at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA); (2) a family fallout shelter; (3) the communications section of the Los Angeles Police Department building; and (4) a typical classroom located at North Hollywood High School.

A fallout radiation field was simulated by the Mobile Radiological Measuring Unit. The unit employed a single radioactive Co 60 source, which was pumped at a uniform speed through a long length of tubing evenly distributed over the area of interest. Measurements of the radiation levels at selected points inside the structures were made with highly sensitive ionization chamber detectors. Protection factors ranged from 10 to 2000 in the UCLA building, up to 10,000 in the family fallout shelter, from 50 to 150 in the communications section of the police building, and from less than 10 to approximately 20 in the high school classroom.”

San Bruno, CA Radiation Experiment, the Navy spread Radioactive Isotopes onto the former San Bruno Navy base now the home of YouTube and Walmart E-commerce Headquarters

The former San Bruno Navy Base which is currently the site of YouTube Headquarters was irradiated with Radio-Tantalum which decays into Radio Tungsten and so the people who work there are subject to alpha contamination to this day!. I highly recommend YouTube and Walmart leave this site and not build on a toxic waste site. Google Headquarters is located on an EPA Superfund site and I recommend they leave the property as fast as they can. How can you hire people to work on an EPA superfund site knowing it is a toxic waste site? Do the employees know?

The site of the San Bruno Navy Base is bounded by San Bruno Avenue, El Camino Real, Sneath Lane, and I-280. Fallout” By Lisa Davis SF Weekly Wednesday, May 2 2001

The following are references and chronologies of the Navy’s testing where they purposely contaminated areas to radiation levels of between 1000 and 10,000 rads to simulate the effect of an atomic bomb blast and how they cleaned up the area. The problem here is that the dose rates reported are of the clean up crews, but there are people who set up these situations, spreading the contaminated material onto the streets, buildings and yards. What happened to them?
Operation Supersweep is still classified, probably for the exact reasons written above. Spreading radioactive contaminates directly onto grounds is not good for real estate values.

Fallout How nuclear researchers handled — and grossly mishandled — the Cold War’s most dangerous radioactive substances at a top-secret lab inside the Hunters Point Shipyard. The same shipyard the city wants to remake as San Francisco’s newest neighborhood.

Link: Fallout” By Lisa Davis SF Weekly Wednesday, May 2 2001

Human experiments on San Francisco. What they did at The Naval Radiological Defense Laboratory at Hunters Point Shipyard including Human Experiments conducted on the unsuspecting public of San Francisco:

“Oversaw the dumping of huge amounts of contaminated sand and acid into San Francisco Bay after they were used in attempts to clean irradiated ships.

– Spread radioactive material on- and off-base, as if it were fertilizer, to practice decontamination. – Burned radioactive fuel oil in a boiler, discharging the smoke into the atmosphere.

– Sold radioactive ships as scrap metal to a private company in Alameda.

– Hung a source of cobalt-60, a nuclear isotope that emits high-energy electromagnetic radiation similar to X-rays, in San Francisco Bay for two weeks, apparently just to see what would happen.

– Conducted human experiments that included requiring people to drink radioactive elements.

– Experimented with significant amounts of a wide variety of long-lived radiological poisons, including plutonium, cesium, uranium, thorium and radium.

– Studied and disposed of thousands of irradiated mice, rats, dogs, goats, mules, and pigs, among other animals. At one point, the lab owned a ranch in Contra Costa County used specifically to raise animals for radiation testing.

– Sought permission to dump 1,000 gallons of liquid waste containing “small amounts of fission products” into San Francisco Bay, as an experiment to study how tidal action would dilute the radioactivity. The experiment was meant as a precursor to the disposal of 1,000 gallons of liquid radioactive waste in the bay every day. (The documents do not say whether the experiment or the daily dumping occurred.)”
