Dr Yury Bandazhevsky Prof., MD, PhD - Low Dose Radiation Dangers To Fetus, Babies, Children, Teens, Adults Start At 10 Bq/Kg; List Of Symptoms And Health Issues Caused By Fukushima, Chernobyl, TMI And Other Nuclear Accidents Or Normal Nuclear Plant Emissions 

Many children are dying and suffering from terrible diseases due to low dose internal radiation exposure around the world. Low dose radiation effects on children have been extensively studied and verified by many independent scientists, medical doctors and independent groups globally, such as by Yury Bandazhevsky Prof., MD, PhD.




WHY AN EMBRYO AND KIDS ARE ESPECIALLY VULNERABLE TO LOW DOSE CUMULATIVE RADIATION DAMAGE



PT November 4, 2015 Dr. John Gofman M.D., Ph.D.: “…The lowest dose of ionizing radiation is one nuclear track through one cell…”

One nuclear track through one cell can cause a mutation or it can trigger Big C, by initiating the process. There is no 'safe' dose of ionizing radiation, nor is there a safe dose for heavy metal radioactive poisons, no matter what the sources.  

dosdos April 25, 2015 All it takes is one stem cell to be altered for the effects of radiation to be felt. The human body is very good at culling damaged normal cells, but it's almost helpless at culling stem cells. Your concept of biology is not exactly in line with the medical knowledge of today.

This is why children are so much more sensitive to radiation than adults, because their ratio of stem cells to normal cells is so much higher. It doesn't take a lot of radiation to alter a stem cell, just a lucky hit.

Thinking in terms that x amount of radiation is not harmful while y amount is harmful doesn't reflect the reality of the issue. If you think in terms of black and white like you seem to do, you don't understand radiation at all. It may take a billion releases to affect you adversely, it may take only one."

NUMEROUS SCIENTIFIC ARTICLES PROVE THAT LOW DOSE RADIATION IS HARMFUL TO CHILDREN, INFANTS AND EMBRYOS, PLUS ADULTS


PTOctober 8, 2015 “…Numerous scientific studies are discussed in detail in this section demonstrating low-dose health effects and the inadequacies of the current risk factors which are relied upon to predict health outcomes from population exposure to internal emitters. They can be broadly summarized as follows:

1. Infant leukemia after the Chernobyl accident
2. Childhood leukemia in the vicinity of the Sellafield reprocessing facility in the UK
3. Childhood leukemia in proximity to a number of nuclear Installations throughout Europe
4. In utero effects produced by Chernobyl
5. Elevated rates of mini satellite DNA mutations among groups exposed to Chernobyl fallout
6. An epidemic of excess cancers after Chernobyl
7. Excess rates of cancer produced from the fallout of nuclear weapon testing
8. Elevated cancer rates among nuclear workers
9. Elevated rates of childhood cancer downwind of nuclear power plants in the U.S.
10. Elevated rates of breast cancer downwind of nuclear power plants in the U.S….”

Aspects of DNA Damage from Internal Radionuclides

“Ionising radiation, however it is delivered, creates harmful effects by causing mutations in genetic material both at the somatic level (cellular DNA) and germ cell level (heritable mutations)… [including a mechanism] termed “Genomic Instability” which is an inducible cell-cell signal consequence of the production of ROS in the cytoplasm (non-DNA region) of an irradiated cell. This process is communicable between cells in some way and even between individuals and has been termed the ‘bystander effect’…” (p. 600)

THE MANY WAYS CHILDREN ARE AFFECTED BY LOW DOSE CUMULATIVE RADIATION


Children are negatively affected by low dose radiation in many ways. The following is a brief summary presented by scientists who have studied this extensively after Chernobyl documenting the following items in that were exposed to low dose radiation:

Increase in spontaneous abortions and stillbirths

Increase in mortality

Increase in number of ill and feeble newborns

Increase in number of genetic defects and diseases, total of over 2,000 possible

Increase in number of congenital malformations

Increase in incidence of cancers of all kinds

Increase in impaired mental development of babies and children

Increase in psychiatric diseases among the children

Increase in alterations of immune system, weakening of constitutions

Increase in abnormal hormone balances

Increase in diseases of the cardiovascular system

Increase in abnormal slow growth of children

Increase in abnormal exhaustion of children

Increase in delayed recovery from diseases

Increase in premature aging effects

The results above were presented by Mr Yablokov at an international conference of nuclear experts regarding Chenobyl, including officials from the UN, IAEA, WHO, etc.

These negative effects were reported on at the conference illustrated in the article above. WHO and IAEA have covered up the effects of the radiation by refusing to report on these effects, by imprisoning people like Yury and by covering up, losing, and/or destroying his research results. 


CHILDREN's RADIONUCLIDES SYNDROME


Children’s Radionuclides Syndrome Discovered

Yuri Bandazhevsky Prof. MD PhD, a scientist and medical researcher, discovered and proved that a new radiation disease exists, which he calls the Long Term Incorporated Radionuclides Syndrome. 

This is a totally new disease that did not exist before manmade radiation came onto the scene, due to ‘accidental’ releases from nuclear power plants and atomic weapons testing. Of course, the nuclear industry and nuclear apologists universally deny the existence or possibility of this even happening. 

According to researchers, Radionuclides Syndrome is a disease of the heart, due to a toxic loading of radioactive Cesium in the heart muscle. As the Cesium collects and concentrates in the heart muscle, it causes problems there. (It is well known that radioactive cesium is absorbed by muscles, including the heart muscle, because the body thinks that radioactive Cesium is potassium.) 

The normal level of cesium in children is ZERO Bq per kilogram of cesium. This ‘safe’ level of cesium was established by Nature over millions of years of evolution.

NUCLEAR VETERANS HEALTH STUDY FOCUSING ON THEIR CHILDREN SHOWED HUGE INCREASES IN BIRTH PROBLEMS AND NEGATIVE HEALTH PROBLEMS IN BABIES


Wyakin April 26, 2015  Nuclear Veterans Child Health Study
“Results showed high levels of miscarriages, stillbirths, infant mortality and congenital illnesses in the veterans’ children relative both to control children and expected numbers. There were 105 miscarriages reported in the veteran mothers compared with 18 in controls OR = 2.75(1.56, 4.91; p = .00016).

There were 16 stillbirths compared with 3 in the controls (OR=2.70 (0.73, 11.72; p = 0.13).

There were 57 veteran children with congenital conditions compared with 3 controls (OR = 9.77 (2.92, 39.3); p = 0.000003) these rates being also about 8 times those expected on the basis of UK EUROCAT data for 1980-2000 suggesting that the control children had not been selected for healthiness.

In the grandchildren, these high levels of congenital illness also occurred with 46 veteran grandchildren recorded with congenital conditions compared with 3 controls OR = 8.35(2.48, 33.8) p = 0.000025.”


WHAT DOES A RADIATION READING OF 50 BQ PER KILOGRAM MEAN?


An internal radiation load of 50 bq per kilogram means that for ever 1 kilogram of the child's weight, 500 atoms disintegrate every second, above the normal background rate. The disintegration effect from cesium, (inside the heart muscle) has a negative effect on children’s health.. 

10,000 radiation tracks are thrown out every second for children with 10,000 Bq per kg of internal radiation. Children around Chernobyl exposed to low dose radiation have been measured with 10,000 Bq of Cesium internal radiation.

After about 50 Bq/kg, a child’s heart will be found (if properly examined) to have lesions developing. At a rate higher than that, he found that the child can die suddenly for no obvious reason, or have heart attacks, strokes, or other health problems around the heart.

Yuri has presented over 400 scientific papers, and has been honored with five awards. After he formally announced to the world his research results above, he was charged by the Russian government with corruption. No proof was presented at the military trial, ruled over by three military judges. Yuri was found guilty by this military tribunal and sentenced to eight years in jail and hard labor. This was later reduced to house arrest, after pressure was applied from human justice organizations outside Russia.


Even the children know the truth.

SUMMARY OF NEGATIVE HEALTH EFFECTS ON HEART OF LOW DOSE, CUMULATIVE CESIUM CONTAMINATION


In summary, what Dr. Yuri found around radiation and the effect on children via internal exposure was the following;

10 Bq/kg - functional problems

20 Bq/kg - electrophysiological problems

30 Bq/kg - loss of energy; affects mitochondria

40-50 Bq/kg - changes metabolic systems

50+ Bq/kg - permanent damage, lesions on organs, heart attacks, etc.

50-60 Bq/kg - animal studies show that this equals 6 Gy of external radiation exposure

REPEATED RADIATION EXPOSURE DECREASES DOSE NEEDED TO ACHIEVE THE SAME NEGATIVE IMPACT


Repeated exposures decrease dose needed to achieve same effect.

FETUS IS 2,000 TIMES MORE SENSITIVE THAN AN ADULT TO THE SAME AMOUNT OF RADIATION 


A fetus is approximately 2,000 times more sensitive to radiation than an adult. So any 'safe' doses for adults need to be divided by 2,000 to apply to a pregnant woman. A fast growing embryo is most likely even more sensitive than a fetus, especially to a hot particle emitting radiation nearby. 

Children have been studied for negative health effects after a nuclear disaster, and here is the sad news... Imagine these numbers being many times worse for the unborn...




80% to 95% of Children In Belarus Have Health Issues When They Are Born


Belarus is located near the site of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. This area was contaminated by low level radiation from the Chernobyl accident, much like Fukushima Province was contaminated in Japan. The future of children's health in Japan can potentially be predicted by what is happening in Belarus today. After all, these children have been studied for over 30 years.

ONLY A FEW OUT OF EVERY 100 CHILDREN BORN IN BELARUS ARE BORN HEALTHY THESE DAYS, AND THE NUMBER CONTINUES TO DROP WITH EACH GENERATION


Only 5 to 20 out of 100 children in Belarus are declared healthy at birth today. These health statistics are getting WORSE with each generation, not better. According to a hospital nurse, the problems are getting WORSE and more numerous each year. 

Before Chernobyl, 80 out of 100 children were declared healthy at birth. Now that statistic has been completely reversed. Only 1 or 2 children out of ten that are born, are healthy and normal. This statistic is getting WORSE, not better with time due to chromosome damage being passed on to future generations in an infinite way. In other words, nuclear power and radiation is like a self destruct bomb, only it goes off slowly and softly inside of human genes. 

To give another example of what happens to children in radiation contaminated zones around Chernobyl, Fukushima, TMI, and many others like it scattered all over the planet at this point... many have no idea they are even living in a contaminated home, because the radiation is invisible and undetectable without special equipment.

CHRONIC FATIGUE IS COMMON IN RADIATION CONTAMINATED CHILDREN


"Most of them were pretty ill. I went to this village and met one family who had three kids. Two of them were completely bed-ridden and, as far as I could get across from my translator, they literally spent all their time in bed because they were so unwell. One of them had cancer and the other had a really bad immune system – she was mentally and physically disabled. She only had one finger. It's hard to think what these kids are going to do when they grow up."

What is the explanation for this catastrophically high rate of deformities, health problems and infections present at birth in radiation contaminated zones? And why are the numbers of problems increasing in radiation contaminated zones, not decreasing? The studies and articles below will help to explain this.

MENTAL RETARDATION, NEUROTIC DISORDERS, LOWER IQ, DELAYED SPEECH, MEMORY IMPAIRMENT, EPILEPSY AND SCHIZOPHRENIA


ECRR: Chernobyl 20 Years on. The Health Effects of the Chernobyl Accident

“………. Disorders of intellectual development in children irradiated in utero in the polluted territories are described as the most tragic consequences of the Chernobyl catastrophe’s impact on health. Pathologies include neurotic disorders, asthenic syndrome, vegetative dystonia, CNS organic pathology, delayed mental development, EEG pathology, delayed development of speech, lowered psycho-emotional development, low IQ indices, deviations in mental development, memory impairment, immaturity for school, organic pathology of the brain, decreased and delayed psychomotor development, epilepsy and epilepsy-related conditions, and schizophrenia.” 
http://www.llrc.org/health/subtopic/ecrrchapteronesynopsis.htm

DETERIORATION OF ATTENTION AND FOCUS IS COMMON AMONG CHILDREN EXPOSED TO LOW DOSES OF RADIATION


Psychological diseases correlate with levels of radioactive pollution. There is a steep and continuing increase in diseases of the nervous system, e.g. congenital convulsive syndrome, brain circulation pathology, general neurological diseases, short-term memory loss, deterioration of attention function in school-children.
http://www.llrc.org/health/subtopic/ecrrchapteronesynopsis.htm


ADULTS CAN HAVE MEMORY PROBLEMS, CONVULSIONS, AND SEVERE HEADACHES


In adults there is growing evidence of a syndrome marked by deteriorating memory and motor skills, occurrence of convulsions, and pulsing headaches. This is caused by the destruction of brain cells and in the region has been dubbed Chernobyl dementia.

RADIOACTIVE CONTAMINATION CAUSES IMMUNE SYSTEM TO DETERIORATE, CAUSING INFECTIONS, AIDS, ETC


“…….Sometimes the weakening of the immune system in these radioactively polluted territories is referred to as Chernobyl AIDS.”

“BAD NEWS ABOUT LOW-LEVEL RADIATION”
Figure 1 represents the "threshold theory." Look across the bottom of Figure 1. As you move your eye from left to right, the numbers represent an increasing dose of radiation. However, until you get to a dose of 4, the line doesn't begin to move upward. When you get to 4 or more, the line moves upward, representing an increase in the number of cancers being caused by the dose. Four represents the "threshold dose" in Figure 1. If Figure 1 accurately represents reality, it means you could give everyone a small dose of radioactivity without any ill effects whatsoever. Many people in the nuclear power industry favor this theory.

Figure 2 shows a competing theory of how radiation affects people. It is called the "linear theory" and it indicates that any dose of radiation causes some consequences. Notice that, as soon as you move your eye to the right across the bottom of the figure, the line rises, indicating some cancer effect. The only way to get zero cancer effect is to administer zero dose. (This does not mean that a low dose will cause cancer in everyone who receives the dose; it means that a low dose administered to a large group of people will cause cancer in some number of those people--but everyone in the group is at risk.) This is the theory that health authorities have used to set today's allowable limits for radiation exposure.

Figure 3 represents a different theory (called the "supra-linear" theory" of how radiation affects humans. It shows that low doses cause greater damage, per unit of dose, than do high doses. For example, look across the bottom of Figure 3 until you get to a dose of 4; you can see that this causes a cancer effect of between 6 and 7. But if you move your eye to the left, to a dose of 2, the cancer effect has not been cut in half; it is still up around 5. The "supra-linear theory" indicates that low levels of radiation will cause more cancers, per unit of radiation, that will large doses. This view of radiation chills the hearts of those who profit from using radioactivity because it means "low level" radioactive waste is more dangerous than previously thought, and must be handled with greater care (and therefore greater expense).

If a person will go into these studies, they will more than likely find that there is a pattern that is inescapable and repetitive. The results keep repeating themselves, no matter where the radiation is found, or which population is studied. 

But, some people still manage to disagree with all of the above evidence that low dose INTERNAL radiation causes harm. They go even further, and state that NO EVIDENCE EXISTS of internal radiation causing harm. 

HOW PRO NUCLEAR AUTHORITIES MISLEAD THE PUBLIC AND MINIMIZE THE DANGERS 


The IAEA, UN, WHO, NRC and other pro-nuclear agencies, scientific experts and pro nuclear politicians representing the nuclear industry have NO EXPLANATION for this public health crisis, other than blaming the victims of this low dose radiation for causing their own illnesses with phobias, worries and 'stress'. 

The pro nuclear monopoly believes that internal radiation causes absolutely no harm whatsoever, despite all of the scientific and medical evidence to the contrary. In most cases, they refuse to even talk about, much less present this information at their industry symposiums, association meetings, safety meetings and/or community meetings. 

Ask a pro-nuclear industry ‘expert’ about internal radiation and it’s effects on health. The odds are very high indeed that they will either refuse to talk with you about this issue, dismiss all studies about it, or call anyone studying this issue a quack, charlatan or a fraud, no matter what their expertise, experience or industry reputation as a doctor, biologist, etc. 

NHK reported the risk of internal exposure in June 2009

Yuri reported that statistics about children getting sick from radiation around Chernobyl have not been and still are not being shared with ANYONE in the nuclear community; not the UN, not the WHO, not anyone else in the nuclear community, not with the education community and not with the public, via the mass media, much of which in the US is owned by GE, a nuclear power plant builder. Could there be some bias or built in conflict of interest here? 

The official final draft coming out of the nuclear conference never mentions that new research is being done on low dose radiation and does not recommend that any research be done in this area. The conference of nuclear experts never voted to accept any new research for low dose radiation, despite much evidence and urging from civilian doctors and scientists gathered there from around the world. Is this evidence of a coverup? 

Oops, they scrubbed the web of this video, and it no longer exists either. This video, along with the other one above, was the two part video of this conference. It clearly showed how the WHO and IAEA covered up the effects of the radiation.

Helen Caldicott, MD explains how nuclear apologists mislead the world over radiation dangers in this material.

SCIENTIFIC DEBATE ABOUT HORMESIS THEORY FOR THE NERDS AMONG US AND CRITICISM OF LNT MODEL, BECAUSE NEW EVIDENCE HAS SHOWN IT TO BE HIGHLY INACCURATE


In the following very scientific debate, readers can dive into the world of scientists debating each other about the merits of hormesis theory versus the LNT theory. Heavy scientific reading, but some people will like this heavy duty science stuff.. 

IS THE LINEAR-NO-THRESHOLD HYPOTHESIS APPROPRIATE FOR USE IN RADIATION PROTECTION?

Dosage information

UpsideDown November 11, 2015  "Why There is No 'Safe' Level of Radiation from Fukushima"
"While a highly coordinated effort is underway by the nuclear industry, mainstream media, medical establishment and world governments to define, justify and reinforce a "safe level of radioactivity" pertaining to the air, the water, the food, and our bodies, the unspoken truth contained within the precautionary principle that there is no safe dose of radiation, nor a safe level of exposure to the 200+ radioisotopes released by the Fukushima reactor complex meltdown, is but an inaudible whisper in the cacophony of a world dominated by universal deception."

The article above explains why the LNT model is off by as much as 55,000 times. It also under predicts the negative health repercusions of low dose cumulative by as much as 60 times. There is no attention given to the reduced quality of life, or the cost of healthcare for those suffering from the negative impact of radioactive pollution coming from the nuclear industry. 

Bottom line, not only is the hormesis theory totally bogus, the but the LNT dose model that it is compared to is also incorrect, highly flawed and is highly biased or slanted to favor the nuclear industry, while denying harm and negative health outcomes to communities, pregnant moms, kids and embryos. 

30 WAYS THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY PRACTICES THEIR ART AND SCIENCE OF DECEPTION


There is even a manual that is very well hidden, which details 30 ways to deceive the public about the dangers of radiation. If you want, you can read it for yourself. You will see that the news items from the industry and apologists all use these 30 techniques, with positive results for the industry. 

Following the publication of an article in the newspaper Mainichi Daily News, here is the reaction of Michel Fernex, professor emeritus at the Medical Faculty of Basel, former member of the steering committees of TDR (Tropical Diseases Research) in the WHO and President of the Association of Children of Chernobyl Belarus from 2006 to 2010.

“The central dogma of radiation biology, that biological effects of ionizing radiation are a direct consequence of DNA damage occurring in irradiated cells, has been challenged by observations that genetic/epigenetic changes occur in unexposed “bystander cells” neighboring directly-hit cells, due to cell-to-cell communication or soluble factors released by irradiated cells.” Italian research paper in Chinese translation about low level radiation will result in brain cancer.

AUSTRALIAN NUCLEAR RESEARCH DONE BY STEALING BODIES, AND THEN KEEPING THE RESULTS SECRET


"From 1957 to 1978, scientists secretly removed bone samples from over 21,000 dead Australians as they searched for evidence of the deadly poison, Strontium 90 – a by-product of nuclear testing. The movie ‘Silent Storm’ reveals the story behind this astonishing case of officially sanctioned ‘body-snatching’. Set against a backdrop of the Cold War, the saga follows celebrated scientist, Hedley Marston, as he attempts to blow the whistle on radioactive contamination and challenge official claims that British atomic tests posed no threat to the Australian people. Marston’s findings are not only disputed, he is targeted as ‘a scientist of counter-espionage interest’. In 2001, tons of human bones were found in Melbourne, contaminated by Strontium 90, a toxic residue of nuclear weapon tests in Australia."

United States; Three Mile Island And Low Dose Radiation Effects On Children

The official pro nuclear industry provided figures are too low to account for the acute health effects reported by some local residents and documented in two books;[5][6] such health effects require exposure to at least 100,000 millirems (100 rems) to the whole body - 1000 times more than the official estimates.[7]

The reported health effects are consistent with high doses of radiation, and comparable to the experiences of cancer patients undergoing radio-therapy,.[8] but have many other potential causes.[7] The effects included "metallic taste, erythema, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, hair loss, deaths of pets and farm and wild animals, and damage to plants."[9] Some local statistics showed dramatic one-year changes among the most vulnerable: "In Dauphin County, where the Three Mile Island plant is located, the 1979 death rate among infants under one year represented a 28 percent increase over that of 1978, and among infants under one month, the death rate increased by 54 percent."[4] Physicist Ernest Sternglass, a specialist in low-level radiation, noted these statistics in the 1981 edition of his book Secret Fallout: low-level radiation from Hiroshima to Three-Mile Island. 

Scientific work continued in the 1980s, but focused heavily on the mental health effects due to stress,[4] as the Kemeny Commission had concluded that this was the sole public health effect.[12] A 1984 survey by a local psychologist of 450 local residents, documenting acute radiation health effects (as well as 19 cancers 1980-84 amongst the residents against an expected 2.6[9]), ultimately led the TMI Public Health Fund reviewing the data[13] and supporting a comprehensive epidemiological study by a team at Columbia University.[8]

US Low Dose Radiation Deaths


An estimated 14,000 excess deaths in the United States are linked to the radioactive fallout from the disaster at the Fukushima nuclear reactors in Japan, according to a major new article in the December 2011 edition of the International Journal of Health Services. This is the first peer-reviewed study published in a medical journal documenting the health hazards of Fukushima. 

Authors Joseph Mangano and Janette Sherman note that their estimate of 14,000 excess U.S. deaths in the 14 weeks after the Fukushima meltdowns is comparable to the 16,500 excess deaths in the 17 weeks after the Chernobyl meltdown in 1986. The rise in reported deaths after Fukushima was largest among U.S. infants under age one. The 2010-2011 increase for infant deaths in the spring was 1.8 percent, compared to a decrease of 8.37 percent in the preceding 14 weeks.

June 3, 2011 – Infant deaths have risen 48% in Philadelphia since mid-March, when fallout from the meltdowns at Japanese nuclear reactors reached the U.S., according to data published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Soaring infant deaths occurred as the highest levels of radiation in drinking water in the nation were found in Philadelphia by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), raising the possibility of a link between Japanese radiation and risk of infant death….."

Science Explores How And Why Low Dose Radiation Harms Children

It is important to understand how the body responds to ionizing radiation, natural or manmade. When a DNA strand is broken due to radiation damage, how does the body respond? From New Take On Impacts Of Low Dose Radiation;

“…”Humans evolved in an environment with very low levels of ionizing radiation, which makes it unlikely that a cell would suffer more than one double strand break at any given time. A DNA repair center would seem to be an optimal way to deal with such sparse damage. It is like taking a broken car to a garage where all the equipment for repairs is available rather than to a random location with limited resources.

Time-lapse imaging of DNA damage response to radiation shows that 1.5 minutes after irradiation, the sizes and intensities of radiation induced foci are comparable throughout the nucleus, but 30 minutes later RIF have clustered into larger and brighter regions called DNA repair centers. Researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), through a combination of time-lapse live imaging and mathematical modeling of a special line of human breast cells, have found evidence to suggest that for low dose levels of ionizing radiation, cancer risks may not be directly proportional to dose. This contradicts the standard model for predicting biological damage from ionizing radiation – the linear-no-threshold hypothesis or LNT – which holds that risk is directly proportional to dose at all levels of irradiation. ”

The human body is adapted and has evolved over tens of thousands of years of being exposed to normal background radiation, just like all life on the planet, which is designed the same way. Humans and animals can handle the damage caused by this radiation exposure. 

But when a child’s body is exposed to chronic higher levels of low dose radiation for long periods of time, this repair mechanism no longer functions as well and can get overwhelmed. When the body is exposed to ionizing radiation from manmade sources that break multiple strands of DNA at the same time, the repair mechanism of the body gets overwhelmed. This results in DNA strands that end up being repaired incorrectly, or not at all. 

“It is the same as when dozens of broken cars are brought to the same garage at once, the quality of repair is likely to suffer,” Costes says.” Source: New Take on Impacts of Low Dose Radiation”

The World Health Organization Director says that radiation in any amount is always dangerous. There is risk to any increased amount of radiation. Radiation Is Always Dangerous, Says World Health Organization Director-General

JUST A FEW THINGS THAT THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY IGNORES OR DENIES WHEN THEY TALK ABOUT RADIATION 'SAFETY'


PTOctober 8, 2015“…Phenomena ignored by current radiation protection science:

1. Genomic Instability
2. The Bystander Effect
3. Varying sensitivity of cells to radiation during their lifetime
4. The Second Event Theory
5. The biphasic dose response demonstrated in low -
dose/slow-dose rate exposure
6. Genetic variation between people in sensitivity to radiation damage
7. Differences in immune response to radiation damage
8. Different radioisotopes have different chemical affinity to different molecular structures and their subsequent radioactive decay can produce an elevated hazard. Examples : uranyl ions bind strongly to DNA and strontium has an affinity for the phosphate backbone of DNA…”

FUKUSHIMA LOW DOSE RADIATION STUDIES


Fukushima Low Dose Radiation Studies

Watch the video below about how and why radiation harms children and women more than anyone else, but the nuclear industry ignores this and does not inform the public. In Japan, the evidence based on science is ignored and actually attacked as being false, quackery or does not exist at all. In Japan, the ‘safe’ dose of radiation has been established for EVERYONE at 100 mSv per year. Watch the video to find out what the effects of this amount of radiation are on children and women.

In this online audio interview and talk, Dr. Helen Caldicott MD (a pediatrician with deep knowledge of radiation dangers) continues to explain in an online audio interview with Arnie Gunderson that in Fukushima, 3000 kids were tested, and 1000 had thyroid 'lumps'. (Jan. 2012)

Fukushima Radiation Not Safe!
VIDEO: https://youtu.be/ywKv0dj3UuY 12 min

To find lumps in children is extremely rare normally. The latent period for cancer is very short, 1 year. Children are very sensitive to radiation. To know if this is cancer, you need to take the lumps out. A cyst can have cancer cells in it. 

A tumor is just a collection of cells. Probably quite a few of these are cancers. They are about 5 mm in size. Japanese doctors are just monitoring them, waiting for the cancer to spread through the whole body. They could do a needle biopsy to find out what they are. This is medically irresponsible. At least they are starting to monitor them. This is only ten months in.. This predicts a real problem in the future.

They should have evacuated 250,000 to 500,000 people, and only 100,000 people were actually evacuated. The rest were left in radiation contaminated areas. 80% of radiation went offshore. Only 20% of total went onshore to land. They were lucky. More than 1/2 of Japan where people live is contaminated.

Small girls are five times more sensitive to radiation than small boys. These girls are at great risk of getting cancer due to radiation doses of 20 mSv per year. A recent Frontline show about Fukushima claims this dose is 'safe' for kids and adults. They believed the nuclear apologists and did not investigate any further. One out of 500 people will get cancer at this dose. This risk is doubled every year, at this dose.

In five years, one out of 20 girls will end up with cancer during their lifetime. This process of increasing radiation risk and odds of getting cancer keeps going up, for each year that they are exposed to this level of radiation…. This cancer risk is ON TOP Of the normal odds of getting cancer in a lifetime; 1 in 3 in US.
