[Black substance] Nuclear expert, “Melanized fungal cells manifested increased growth with radiation exposure”

Cyanobacteria is observed mass generated from Fukushima to Tokyo to concentrate extremely high level of radiation, which is called black substance.
(cf, 43 million Bq/Kg of cesium measured from black substance [Link])

In 2007, nuclear experts from Albert Einstein College of Medicine wrote the report about fungi growing in Chernobyl.
It suggests the possible relationship between radiation and the black substance seen after Fukushima.

Most dramatically, melanized fungal species colonize the walls of the highly radioactive damaged reactor at Chernobyl [6] and surrounding soils [7]. These findings, and the laboratory observations of the resistance of melanized fungi to ionizing radiation [8], [9], suggest a role for this pigment in radioprotection.
Exposure of melanin to ionizing radiation, and possibly other forms of electromagnetic radiation, changes its electronic properties. Melanized fungal cells manifested increased growth relative to non-melanized cells after exposure to ionizing radiation, raising intriguing questions about a potential role for melanin in energy capture and utilization.

[Substance noire] Un expert nucléaire : “Des cellules mélanisées de champignons ont manifesté une croissance accélérée sous exposition à la radioactivité”

Des cyanobactéries sont observées se développant en masse de Fukushima à Tokyo et concentrant la radioactivité à des niveaux extrêmement élevés, elles sont appelées la substance noire.
(cf. 43 millions Bq/kg de césium dans de la substance noire [Lien])

En 2007, des experts du nucléaire du Collège de Médecine Albert Einstein ont écrit un rapport sur des champignons poussant à Tchernobyl. Il suggère une possible relation entre la radioactivité et la substance noire observée après Fukushima.

Plus spectaculairement, les espèces de champignons mélanisées colonisent les murs du réacteur endommagé et hautement radioactif de Tchernobyl [6] et les sols alentour [7]. Ces découvertes et les observations en laboratoire de la résistance à la radioactivité des champignons mélanisés [8], [9], suggèrent un rôle de ce pigment dans la radioprotection.
L’exposition de la mélanine aux radiation ionisantes et aux autres formes possibles de rayonnements électromagnétiques changent ses propriétés électroniques. Les cellules fongiques mélanisées ont manifesté une croissance plus importante que celles non-mélaniées après exposition aux radiations ionisantes, soulevant des questions intrigantes sur un possible rôle de la mélanine dans la capture et utilisation de l’énergie.

    Very interesting Iori .
    Does it mean that black people are more radiation resistant ? Could they work safer near nuclear accidents ? TEPCO should find out …

    Also , melanin is produced by melanocytes which are Crest cells hence belonging to the neuron family …

    As for the fungus growing more when iradiated it points out to a different way of using the ionizing energy ( radiation ) to harness its energy , so it’s not so much a matter of protecting from radiation but rather chaneling the energy in a different way that does not actually break Bonds and destroy the organism …

    This can have major effects on the Quantum/Relativity theories by showing indirectly what nucleotides and energy actually are . The black fungus would simply evolve to pick up the radiation energy and chanell it through its metabolism ( rather than letting it ‘lose’ to damage structural bonds by using Unknown properties of particles and radiation .

    How was your day so far Iori , hope you cheer up !

    Couple of links to Bobby’s blog (optimalprediction.com)about this subject which you might find interesting. http://optimalprediction.com/wp/black-substance-destroying-hawaiis-largest-barrier-reef/ and another one
    Very best wishes and thank you.

    Squid ink is very high in melanin. Anybody experimenting?

    I am sure it is nothing. The taxpayer sponsored State Media is not going into a frenzy. Not sure it ever will though.
