Man Eats Uranium, Drinks and Swims In Reactor Water, Ignites Plutonium In His Bare Hand

by Michael Suede

Apparently radioactive material isn’t as dangerous as the EPA has made it out to be.

From the video notes:
Galen Winsor is a nuclear physicist of renown who worked at, and helped design, nuclear power plants in Hanford, WA; Oak Ridge, TN; Morris, IL, San Jose, CA; Wimington, NJ. Among his positions of expertise he was in charge of measuring and controlling the nuclear fuel inventory and storage.

Galen Winsor has traveled and lectured all over America, spoken on national talk radio, and made several videos exposing the misunderstood issues of nuclear radiation. He shows that fear of radiation has been exaggerated to scare people … so a few powerful people can maintain total control of the world’s most valuable power resource. Filmed by Ben Williams in 1986.
In the video, you can watch Galen lick a pile of highly radioactive uranium off the palm of his hand and ignite a chunk of plutonium into a shower of flaming dust.  The guy also drank reactor cooling pool water for fun and liked to go swimming in the pool to relax.  He also spiked the basement flooring of his own home with enough radioactive material to send any Geiger counter reading off the scale to disprove the fear mongering surrounding radon at the time.

Galen surmises the regulations and fear mongering that surround radioactive materials are in place to prevent the widespread adoption of nuclear power in local small scale neighborhood/home based reactors.  Galen also points out that hot nuclear “waste” can be effectively turned into a safe power source through thermionic conversion, which is how the U.S. submarine navigation network was powered.  The heat it gives off can also be used to safely heat homes.

He points out that nuclear “waste” is worth roughly $10 million (in 1986 dollars) a ton if it were to be reprocessed to collect its useful isotopes, so all of this talk about trying to bury it is a sham.  He says the power companies are holding all the waste with the intent of playing the plutonium futures market.  The “waste” could be stored above ground in already constructed buildings meeting all the regulatory requirements without the need to have these outrageous basalt mines dug into mountains.  The only reason he can think of for these underground vaults is to hide bodies/evidence that the state doesn’t want uncovered.

At its core, he says federal controls over nuclear material is about maintaining power and control over the masses through the denial of self-sufficient power sources.  Obviously if one had a personal sized power source that was cheap and efficient, they wouldn’t need to be connected to the “grid” for anything.  The power grid is the control grid our rulers use to keep us under their thumbs.

He also says Three Mile Island was an intentionally created disaster, and that a core meltdown could not melt its way deep into the Earth.

20934 Ten years ago I would have instantly ridiculed this guy as a bat-shyte crazy idiot without a second thought.

Now I have discovered so many things I took as "common knowledge" when I was a kid in the 70's were in reality purposeful lies, today I would actually investigate this guy's claims before dismissing him out-right.

20645 Lol @ 20934.....

I could have written your post. We're never too old to learn something new.

67142 Galen Winsor died of leukemia. The radiation may not have killed him on the spot but it got him in the end. Look it up!

This video is dangerous! It gives people the impression that radiation will not harm you.

Sure you can swim in a reactor pool because a few feet water will block beta particles. Notice he didn't ever swim down and try to touch the rods.

Look up the difference between unirradiated Uranium oxide which is what he was eating and irradiated Uranium oxide. If he at the later he would have been dead with in hours

Dont be fooled by this video, look up:
Louis Slotin Manhattan project
Alexander Litvinenko
Cecil Kelley Los Alamos
Harry K. Daghnian, Jr. Manhattan project
Eben McBurney Byers
Hiroshi Couchi
Marie Curie physicist and chemist and a pioneer in the field of radioactivity
Soviet Submarine K-19
Hiroshima and Nagasaki

I could go on for pages

This video was obviously made for those uneducated in this field, ive seen this video on other sites and its leading people to believe that radiation is safe and there is some cover up which i find highly disturbing especially with what is going on with Fukushima right now

74115 Is this guy still alive today? or has he died from radiation poisoning or cancer. He may be a freak with a personal tolerance to heavy elements. I know I wouldn't have the balls to try it myself.

74115 lol at 67142 answered my question as I was asking it

Can you provide a source for your claim he died of leukemia? I can't find anything on his death, nor his age when he died.

"Galen Hulet Winsor, 82, of West Richland, died July 19 in West Richland. He was born in Morgan, Utah, and lived in the Tri-City area since 1950. He was a retired chemist for General Electric."

No info how he died, but dying at 82 means he lived 5 years longer than the average American male.

65131 What a fracking joke... I question why infolib would post this but more so I expected more from the readers than what I'm seeing in some of the comments... Good god man, no you can not do that and live.

Posted: Jun 30 2012, 7:45 AM

65131 This is most likely the dumbest thing ever posted on the net. I'm pretty freaking disapointed to see this level of garbage on infolib. Sad day for this site.

92206 Thanks for the brave post!

The energy monopole/market scam argumentation DOES fit into the reality I perceive.

So it makes my eyes and brain open to critically watch and rethink nuclear related news with remembering this video.

Thank you!

683 He was a very very very angry man, when he desiged and built a recycling plant for GE, and his fellow Mormon, Stu Udall, said it could not be used and declared all the spent material as high level nuclear waste to be buried, not recycled. After 5 years of anger (his words not mine) he became the conspiracy theory entertainer we see here. He also was member of the John Birch Society, and is promoted by several anti-regulation lobbies. But he is right, that radiation damage is much less with distance (square of the distance), so if you can not BREATH the fine powders, you will probably be OK just keeping your distance. He radon rant does not agree wtih cancer cluster studies, but perhaps the standards are too tight, and the cancer cases were many times the standard. Who can say.

1545 I was looking for studies of short and long term exposure to radiation, say Caesium, on mice, rats, monkeys etc, but there seems to be very little out there. The only one I did find was 'inconclusive', the test rats had the same increase in cancer as the control group. Surely this is where testing needs to be done to prove or disprove his claims, unless, as I now suspect, Big Oil now has so much influence that they can buy off the researchers or exert other influences to keep this story out of the mainstream press. A search for him brought up no mention by any mainstream media source.

205209 Nagasaki...? Hiroshima...? Depleted uranium...? They didn't turn out well. JBS...nuff said.

Posted: Nov 09 2012, 12:13 AM

205209 Just wanted to comment again on how incredibly fucking gullible right-libertarians seem to be. Dangerous stuff. Try the DDT videos, "DDT is good for me!" A mega-corporation says so, must be good! Free market! Get the commies!

8875 Radon gas does produce cancer, I believe, but that does not mean all radioactivity is extremely dangerous. Please keep things in proportion. Coal kills about 30 to 60 people per TWh of electricity produced, Nuclear power has less deaths than even Solar and Wind per TWh produced even taking Chernobyl into the equation, so this is really ridiculous the way people behave.

Also Radon comes out of the chimneys of coal in huge quantities, so if you want to reduce exposure to radioactivity, the rational thing would be to stop burning coal and to build lots of nuclear power plants.

Regarding the cancer clusters, this has also been disproven, the are caused by viruses, and anyway, we are talking of 6 instead of 3 leukemia cases, which could be a fluke of randomness too. Anyways, 3 cases of leukemia dont warrant shutting down nuclear. By those standard you would still have to shut down all hydro, all solar and all windfarms first. They kill vastly more people, about 1 to 2 per TWh and way beyond 60 for hydro.

8875 Prohibition of DDT is outrageous, it saved many peoples lives, and now many people die of malaria again. Again these leftist greens are unable to do simple math, even if it is harmful you have to see how many die if you use it and how many die if you dont. Stupidity rules the liberals.

65164 Well I guess Dr Edward Teller didn't really know anything about nuclear energy even though he was in the middle of it. He wrote the forward to Dr Eric Skousen's book, The Nuclear War.

And Sir Fred Hoyle doesn't know his science either, when he wrote Energy or Extinction where he makes a scientist's case for nuclear power.

Nor does Cresson H Kearney who has had repeated publications of his book since the early 80s of Nuclear War Survival.

Get it from the horse's mouth people.
