Epidemiologist back from Fukushima: ‘We’re talking about a sacrifice zone and millions of people live in this area’ — Exceeds allowable radiation dose for nuclear workers 40 kilometers from Fukushima plant
Monday 30 December 2013
Cancer will rise by about 50% with those who are exposed to low levels of radiation for more than ten years. That will apply to millions of people. That, however, could be a rise from from 2 cancers per thousand people a year, to 3 per thousand. If it were him and he lived in Fukushima, he wouldn’t give up his land and his home and break up his family’s way of life for the sake of avoiding a chance of cancer going from 2 to 3 per thousand. Giving up all those things could damage health more than the nuclear contamination.
The real mistake was building the reactors. He says understand people if they decide not to leave the contaminated areas. That would be his decision, were it his choice. It’s the first common sense presentation of the health risks faced by local people I’ve yet heard. So much for those who say Tokyo will have to cleared.
He also says the plants were meant to be tsunami proof, as well as earthquake proof. They probably were. The plants were blown up by a nuclear device in the CCTV system according to Jim Stone’s detailed research. The idea is to panic the Japanese into making decisions about money, and submitting to the power of the global banking and energy cartel.
