DOE Plan to Increase TVA
Commercial Power Plant Production
of Radioactive Tritium for Nuclear Weapons
Sept. 21, 2014

Comments spoken and submitted (5 pages)
at Public Meeting with
the Department of Energy / National Nuclear Security Administration
(DOE/ NNSA) regarding
the Draft Environmental Impact Statement
(DSEIS) for Tritium Production in Tennessee
(at commercial TVA nuclear power plants
to produce radioactive Tritium for nuclear weapons).

We protest the proposed increase in un-filterable tritiated water
(heavy water that remains radioactive for 120 years)
that will be added to the Tennessee River,
and consequently, to Chattanooga drinking water.

Although the radiation danger from Tritium
is underplayed because it is a relatively low energy emitter,
Tritium is a form of hydrogen
that can transform H₂0 water
into radioactive H₃0 water, 
which can permeate every cell in the body
including our DNA.

According to Dr. John W. Gofman, M.D., Ph.D. 
(co-discoverer of uranium, physician, and nuclear physical chemist),
this low-energy emitter, Tritium, does more
damage to our cells and DNA
than higher energy forms of radiation.
