    So there is this landfill west of St. Louis. There is an underground fire that is encroaching on some radioactive materials. Although the government propaganda says it is safe, everyone's gut reaction is, "No way," especially since the landfill and landfill fire can be smelled all over the St...

    Has anyone looked into geiger counters / radiation detectors recently? Now that Fukushima is 1.5+ years behind us, retailers have had time to replenish their stock and it's likely there are new & improved models on the market. And presumably the mad rush to buy has somewhat passed. So now...

    Ran across this on the radiation.org website. When is the last time you heard about this on your local or national news program? Now I need to know where to find a CHEAP radiation detector. How is your daily prep going to change after knowing THIS? http://radiation.org/reading/pubs/HS42_1F.pdf
