Making Radiation Visible Project; DNA Evidence And Photoacoustic Imaging May Prove Link Between Cancers And Fukushima Radiation In The Near Future

What if there was more than one way to establish a direct and provable in court link between cancer and Fukushima radiation? 

In recent history, justice has been served by bringing DNA evidence into the courtroom around murders and other violent acts that result in death or injury. DNA evidence is now a well established science that provides evidence of a crime.

DNA EVIDENCE USED ALL OF THE TIME IN COURTS, WHY NOT IN RADIATION EXPOSURE CASES?


DNA evidence is worth much more than even eyewitness testimony. DNA technology has been advancing constantly, so that less and less DNA to establish a 'profile'. Nowadays, all it takes to make a court case and have enough DNA evidence, is just 3 or 4 cells. 

DNA evidence can also exonerate the innocent, as shown in the following video..


What is going to be the effect when DNA evidence is established as a DIRECT cause of cancer and death due to a mega nuclear disaster such as Fukushima? Here is the landmark scientific study that provides a potential FUTURE mechanism for any lawyer or legal lawsuit against the nuclear industry.

STUDIES SHOWING DNA LINK BETWEEN CANCERS AND NUCLEAR ACCIDENTS


Hess, J. et al Gain of chromosome band 7q11 in papillary thyroid carcinomas of young patients is associated with exposure to low-dose irradiation. Proceeding of the National Academy of Sciences USA (PNAS); Link to publication

"Scientists have been able to discriminate between the cancers caused by the radioactive contamination and those that arise naturally. Prof. Zitzelsberger ascribes the success of this study to the careful collection, documentation and storage of thyroid cancers from the Chernobyl region in the Chernobyl Tissue Bank. He noted that this unique collection of materials made it possible for the team to compare for the first time tumors from children of the same age and regional background.

DNA FINGERPRINT FROM RADIATION SHOULD BE THERE, EVIDENCE OF GENOCIDE IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER


Via William Bibb - "If you can prove what caused it, you should be able to sue. Papillary thyroid cancer in children that was caused by radiation leaves a DNA fingerprint in the biopsy. The government of Japan has legal liability for failure to properly supervise TEPCO. Without a jury system, what damages would be awarded is another question. If nuclear energy had to pay for the damage it caused, there would be no such industry. Same with coal, gas and oil."

This DNA marker is could possibly end up being the nuclear industry's worst nightmare in the near future. Can you imagine this scenario? A medical professional or lawyer team anywhere the world orders a DNA test and has the cancer tissue analyzed to see if it was caused by Fukushima or Chernobyl, or Santa Susana, or Three Mile Island radioactive elements, each of which have a unique 'signature', just like people have fingerprints. 

Obviously, the scientific study above was focused around Chernobyl and thyroid cancers, but the concept is applicable to any nuclear accident, including Fukushima. Quite possibly, the same process could be applied to any tissue sample, from any cancer, in any area of the body. This is definitely on the cutting edge and any lawyer plus DNA expert making a case this way will create history. 

If the courts and justices are even handed and really in pursuit of justice, rather than allying themselves with the nuclear industry while dismissing most cases brought by nuclear fallout victims, as has been the case so far, this could spell the end of the nuclear age. Imagine the effect of bringing in 'fingerprint evidence' that documents deaths caused DIRECTLY by nuclear accidents....

The crimes of genocide have been committed. Chernobyl has directly caused over 1 million deaths already. Thousands of victims have already been claimed due to Fukushima radiation. But at least now there is a chance that justice can be sought and found, if not by the victims, then by the relatives and family of the deceased. All that is needed is a tissue bank, as was established after Chernobyl.

NANO PARTICLES OF URANIUM OR OTHER MAN MADE ELEMENTS CAN BE DETECTED WITH PHOTO ACOUSTIC IMAGING


Nanoparticles that can be detected with photoacoustic imaging when they complex with uranium ions could open the door to new plans of action after radiological incidents, like Chernobyl or Fukushima, US researchers claim.

SAVE A TISSUE SAMPLE


Lacking a tissue bank, DNA will last practically forever, if you dry the tissue or freeze it. Document the chain of custody from the person who took the sample to the testing person who brings the DNA evidence from the tissue into court. 

Quite possibly, a family of a cancer victim can sue for damages many years in the future, if they keep tissue samples of the cancer cells from a family victim. After all, there is no time limit for justice on murder, correct? 

Another method that can possibly be used to go after nuclear companies is to ID the chemical signature of the nuclear fuel that they leak, spill or allow to melt down. This would be much the same method that the Coast Guard uses when they go to court to prove that a specific ship spilled oil in a specific spot, despite lack of any witnesses or admission by the ship owners or captain. 

The Coast Guard gathers a sample of the ship's oil, and then matches it chemically to the oil spilled. This is much the same process used in DNA matching of a murderer's DNA found at a crime scene. In court, this chemical 'fingerprint' is admissible as evidence. Why couldn't this be done with radioactive elements too, as they are also chemicals, just in the metals category?


COMMUNITY BASED LAWSUITS IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT


For those who want to do something now, it is always possible to sue in small claims court. A large number of people can gather together and sue a nuclear company together in one case. No lawyers or special experts are involved, so the only cost is the filing of the small claims court fee. This technique has been used by neighborhoods to go after slum landlords who refuse to kick out drug dealers for example. No DNA evidence is involved, of course. 

A whole community could sue a nuclear utility for whatever harm they are causing (or have caused). The case can be over and done with fairly quickly. Just one local judge is involved and he/she usually lives in the local community. So if the people suing present a good case, it should be an open and shut case. 

BREAKING THE LEGAL IMMUNITY BARRIER DUE TO FRAUD, LYING AND GENOCIDE


Since the nuclear industry in many countries has a legal immunity from lawsuits, a recent class action to try and get this changed may open things up on a larger front. Wouldn't you agree that a company that can harm or kill millions of people should not be immune from lawsuits? 

via MamaBears AgainstNukes "The lawyers for the 1.415 plaintiffs stated that they have filed a lawsuit at the Tokyo District Court, describing the case as a landmark challenge to nuclear power plant manufacturers immunity from liability in nuclear accidents."

SAN ONOFRE HAD MANY LAWSUITS FILED AGAINST IT, THIS COULD HAVE BEEN WHAT STOPPED IT FROM RESTARTING


The legal process can have a huge negative impact on nuclear companies. The San Onofre nuclear plant had a number of lawsuits filed against it re-opening, after it admitted that many of the steam tubes it had just replaced were leaking (within 18 months of installation). It is quite possible that the large number of lawsuits, combined with citizen activism, plus citizen reporting via numerous blogs and youtube videos, all made a difference. Bottom line, keep fighting and never give up. And remember, that there are many ways to 'win'. 

Here is another way that women specifically can make a difference. "Japanese women have started a twitter account that says; "We won't have sex with men who vote for Yoichi Masuzoe"! Yoichi is a misogynist candidate running in the Tokyo gubernatorial election. He says women can't make good conductors nor composers so they aren't meant to be politicians either." Yoichi Masuzoe is the candidate for ProNuke and Restart Nuke Plants supported by LDP. Update; sadly, he won and is now mayor of Tokyo.

DNA RESEARCHERS NEEDED TO STUDY EFFECT OF CHRONIC EXPOSURE TO MAN MADE RADIATION


via OldFool April 13, 2014 "With over 5000 distinct DNA segments specifically for the synthesis of about 5000 enzymes, humans could easily have 5000 enzyme deficiency diseases alone just from DNA mutations from radiation. This would be in addition to the thousands of diseases normally caused by viruses and bacteria and other causes. Medical diagnosis will probably become quite a bit more challenging in the near future, since people are probably going to experience some diseases previously rarely seen."

DNA EVIDENCE OF HARM FROM RADIATION NEEDED TO BE DEVELOPED TO POINT WHERE IT CAN BE USED IN COURT


There is a reason to get this radiation DNA evidence technology going and develop it to the point where it can be used in court. Things will only get worse in the future, the more man made radiation everyone is exposed to. Time is rapidly running out for the human race and all life on the planet as the DNA destruction keeps multiplying and the threads of life are literally pulled apart...

Maybe it is time for more people to sue the nuclear industry in all possible ways... to protect future generations.

GROUP OF 300 LAWYERS INTENDS TO SUE EVERY UTILITY THAT TRIES TO RESTART A NUCLEAR REACTOR IN JAPAN

HOW TO WIN IN COURT AGAINST THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY


How Can A Radiation Exposure Victim Get 10 Million Dollars As Compensation For Health And Property Damage? via @AGreenRoad

"One person with courage makes a majority." Andrew Jackson

Socrates February 4, 2014  "Thanks, Doc! I forwarded that on to the trial lawyers. The initial plume of 131I and the lingering 129I may prove some cases of papillary thyroid cancer. I would have a pathologist maintain custody of some tissue and keep some myself. This is a breakthrough from a forensic standpoint. Hot particles may have necropsies or biopsies. There were no hot particles in Seattle until Fukushima.

How does one acquire jurisdiction in federal district court against GE for meltdown in Japan that injures US resident? Ge designed and built reactor #1. 2, 3, and 4 were designed by GE. There are plenty of injured US residents who will eventually seek to assign blame. I am trying to get some very large lawfirms involved. Your help is appreciated. Always read your blog. Tons of great information.

By paying the damages, nuclear power is not profitable. The best way to get rid of it is to make them pay. Regulators never make them pay nor take their licenses. Nobody goes to prison. Price Anderson Act of 1957 places taxpayers on the hook, if you can prove causation. This helps very tremendously!!!!"
