Why Are So Many Horses Dying at Santa Anita Park? – The Millennium Report

Though under no circumstances a jockey, I’ve ridden horses along the Sierra Nevada as a boy, in Japan in my teenagers, and in adulthood via the Nepalese Himalayas and in the Gobi and Kumtag Deserts. There was a second in time when a murderous gang of smugglers was chasing me up a slope in the Mustang region of Nepal, but my little mountain horse hopped like a bullfrog up the rocky slope leaving the dangerous guys and their Arabian stallions within the mud. After the close name, that black horse was happily galloping alongside the gravel of the Kali Gandhaki, River of the Dying Goddess, with me, both arms outstretched, letting go of the reins that waved within the wind and whooping in wild abandon.

At this time, recalling that high-risk journey on a courageous horse, I’m glad it did not break a leg or even sustain a scratch by means of the world’s roughest terrain. So how is it, I’ve been wondering, that 30 stronger and larger horses have broken their legs or suffered heart failure, and had to be put down at the Santa Anita Race Monitor in Los Angeles County? The only lame principle put ahead thus far is that unseasonable rainfall had someway altered the feel of the monitor’s surface, positive, as if it by no means storms at Royal Ascot or Churchill Downs, for example, that downpour at the current Kentucky Derby, which resulted in the disqualification of the first-place winner.

When horses die for no apparent cause, I get emotionally upset as a result of my childhood upbringing in Southern California back within the days of singing cowboys like Roy Rodgers and his palomino, Set off, that charming wife of his, Dale Evans and her mare Buttermilk, and Gene Autry and Champ, adopted by the non-musical gunslingers Hopalong Cassidy and Topper, Josh Randall (Steve McQueen) and Ringo, and Rowdy Yates (Clint Eastwood) and Midnight. And there’s the Kimosabe sidekick, Tonto, and his pinto named White Feller, however let’s not journey in that path, at least not now. Hello-Yo Silver, Away!

Cesium and Strontium

California will be the Bear Republic, however its foothills are the prime vary of champion horses. Let me venture to recommend what’s been killing that image of the fantastic West. Since around April 2011 when fallout from the Fukushima reactor meltdowns began amassing across North America, radioactivity ranges have been surging. Up to now eight years, humans particularly babies and now youngsters have been struggling a surge of cancer, as a result of cesium-137 in milk from dairy cattle grazing on contaminated pastures. Cesium mimics potassium, an important mineral in muscle and tissue improvement, particularly in the heart and mind, which accounts for a number of the fallen horses at Santa Anita.

So why are racehorses suffering multiple broken bones? Strontium-90, is in the same chemical group as calcium within the Periodic Desk of Parts. Tall grass, the stuff of hay, attracts up from its roots dissolved calcium, which is why geographic regions rich in limestone like Ireland and Arabia produce giant, robust and quick horses. Calcium-enriched bones present the structural power for a equine physique to transfer and take up the big impacts of galloping at full velocity with a rider on its back.

Atoms of strontium-90, nevertheless, insinuate into the calcium-and-protein matrix of bone, which soon turn out to be porous because of bombardment by released neutrons and in addition heat injury from radiation. Osteoporosis, which may naturally take as much as 40 years in a horse’s lifespan, is sped up by strontium to affect colts as younger as two years of age. Bone loss can also be exacerbated by the cesium-137, which affects the guts and subsequently slows the blood circulation needed for progress and repair of bones and ligaments. Not solely in California, horses worldwide are dying from ingestion of radioactivity, as could be seen within the Fukushima area as proven in a current video I edited titled “The Man from Soma-han” posted at

Why is the most-probable reason for the horse accidents and deaths by no means mentioned in the media? Beneath orders from the Governor’s workplace and the Federal Government, veterinarians and wildlife researchers throughout California are cooperating with the official cover-up, as seen in Santa Anita and in addition at the marine mammal rescue centers along the coast, the place sea lions have been dying en masse. Dropping one’s license to apply veterinary drugs, nevertheless, is a small sacrifice as in contrast with public’s proper to know what has been transpiring and learn how to forestall the unfavourable effects. If this appalling official silence goes unchallenged until Staff USA and its equestrians are despatched to their doom at next yr’s summer time Olympics in Tokyo, nicely, then People should simply burn the Constitution on every road nook and then drink the Kool Assist as a result of it’s over for freedom of expression, fact and justice.

Precipitation Delivers Radioactivity

The precise reality, as uncovered in Might by CBS Los Angeles, is that 60 horses, more than double the number reported, have died at Santa Anita in this spring’s racing season. Now let’s think about the environmental elements for this ongoing bloodbath. The racetrack is equidistant at 40 miles from the beaches north and south of the Los Angeles-Palos Verde bulge. The marine layer of fog and showers, shifting eastward from the California Present is clearly lethal, as confirmed by radioactivity readings I’ve taken over the previous several years, and as seen in the near-total destruction of sea-life in the tide swimming pools.

The other main source of precipitation is from due north, in storms off the North Pacific Present that veer parallel to the Coastal Range. The large forest fires throughout California have released collected radioactive particles from the forests into the environment. What goes up must come down, and so rainfall has concentrated radioactivity around Santa Anita as a result of its location at the foot of Mount Wilson (1,741 meters) in the San Gabriel vary. Two main creek networks deposit radioactive isotopes into dams and water-storage tanks immediately above Santa Anita, where the town and racetrack draw their fresh-water supply. Horses eat huge amounts of water and grass, the latter unfold out extensively across vast pastures, which is why they are among the first species killed off by radioactive fallout.

It is urgent now to truck in water from much less contaminated areas for the endangered animals and for the human inhabitants at the sting of the San Gabriels. The other quick step is block off all pasturage and haul in hay from much less radioactive regions, probably on the far aspect of the Sierra. When a prize horse can easily value tens of millions of dollars, safer food and water are a small worth to pay. Then, all the population of the state’s horse herd, cattle, goats and other pastoral animals must be tested for genetic injury, and the all-clear gene pool needs to shielded from publicity and monitored, otherwise mutations will doom these species to extinction. Sadly, the identical have to be executed for the human inhabitants.

Dying Canaries

The horses at Santa Anita are the canaries in the mine for the human inhabitants of Los Angeles and remainder of the West Coast. What’s been killing the horses will quickly end in mass deaths of youngsters. The timeline because the Fukushima catastrophe is very troubling. The racehorses at Santa Anita are between Three-to-5 years of age, which means they are the second-generation after the Fukushima meltdowns began eight years ago. Their mothers had minimally two years of ingestion and external publicity of radionucleotides, which means as foals the fallen horses drank radioactive mare’s milk and then after weaning consumed nuclear-contaminated grass, hay and water. The human weight-reduction plan, likewise, is massively poisoned, as proven within the sudden deaths of athletic teenagers and younger adults, which may solely be explained by radioactivity within the food plan together with external exposure outdoors.

Resist Now or Lose All the things

Before signing off, let me disclose my private curiosity in the location of this equine tragedy. My paternal grandfather, a turn-of-century immigrant from Japan, once owned a farm within the San Gabriel mountains. The racetrack itself loomed giant for my family because it served as an preliminary detention middle for Japanese-People in the course of the mass internment following Pearl Harbor. My father was already then within the US Army coaching to battle the Nazis in Europe, however one in every of his younger brothers initiated the primary act of resistance towards the Conflict Relocation Authority (WRA), when he caught a Korean agent planted by the FBI. He was outraged that the federal authorities spied on citizens who had dedicated no crime or act of treason and, to the contrary, have been prepared to sacrifice their houses and livelihoods for the great of the nation. The WRA guards assailed Uncle Mas with billy clubs however he was robust as a bull and remained defiant in his American patriotism, even once they cunningly tried to brand him as an enemy national opposing the conflict effort. Meanwhile his older brother, my father, fought on the front strains in Africa, Sicily, Italy, France and crossed the Siegfried Line into Germany, and then continued on to Japan. Lesson clear: the government spins bald-faced lies, even when its self-serving treachery harms the nationwide curiosity.

That spirit of unyielding resistance to the authoritarianism behind this purposeful deception of the American individuals, offers the Constitutional imperative to demand all the information concerning the radioactivity menace to the USA of America. And let the nuclear power firms and their sponsors within the Division of Power (DOE) be damned as traitors. Whether it’s the ghost of Tom Combine or the Lone Ranger reincarnated, “politically correct” hypocritical California is in dire need of conventional Western heroes driving in with guns blazing at all the dangerous guys.

Dedication to a Heroine…

This text is dedicated to the late Dr. Patricia Doyle who was the primary to warn, years ago on Rense Radio, of thoroughbred race horses dealing with the oncoming menace from the Fukushima-contaminated radioactive grass and hay and water they are fed. She was deeply saddened when her prediction came to cross, as a result of human neglect of the radioactivity menace, and these great equine athletes began to crumble on the monitor. We at the moment are beginning to see growing numbers of human athletes falling in comparable style, a development that may improve the times forward. Dr. Doyle’s extraordinary contributions to public health and wisdom are sorely missed. Hers was a singular and exceptional voice on the world stage. – Jeff Rense
