Fukushima radiation alarms doctors

According to Dr Kodama, the total amount of radiation released over a period of more than five months from the ongoing Fukushima nuclear disaster is the equivalent to more than 29 "Hiroshima-type atomic bombs" and the amount of uranium released "is equivalent to 20" Hiroshima bombs.

When on August 2nd readings of 10,000 millisieverts (10 sieverts) of radioactivity per hour were detected at the plant, Japan's science ministry said that level of dose is fatal to humans, and is enough radiation to kill a person within one to two weeks after the exposure
The operator of Japan's crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), that took the reading, used equipment to measure radiation from a distance, and was unable to ascertain the exact level because the device's maximum reading is only 10,000 mSv. .

"Millions of people need to be evacuated from those high radiation zones, especially the children."
"Radiation has a high risk to embryos in pregnant women, juveniles, and highly proliferative cells of people of growing ages. Even for adults, highly proliferative cells, such as hairs, blood, and intestinal epithelium cells, are sensitive to radiation."

Dr Yanagisawa is concerned about what she calls "late onset disorders" from radiation exposure resulting from the Fukushima disaster, as well as increasing cases of infertility and miscarriages.

"Incidence of cancer will undoubtedly increase," she said. "In the case of children, thyroid cancer and leukemia can start to appear after several years. In the case of adults, the incidence of various types of cancer will increase over the course of several decades."

hmmm thats just a drop in the bucket compared to the how many thousands of nukes that have been set off intentionally for testing underground and in the OCEANS! so that number in the article does not compare imo:@

At least they're finally admitting these people are in trouble... but far too late.

I'm just wondering if the doctor did this on his own accord, since don't the Japanese have laws in place to stop people from talking about anything involving the nuclear catastrophe at this moment. If so I'm proud that someone had the nerves to actually speak out truthfully.

I still worry about us here in the U.S.

According to the real-time charts here http://(nolink)/2011/04/12/realtime-epa-radnet-japan-nuclear-radiation-monitoring-every-us-city-single-page-16511/

alot of cities are still experiencing high radiation

such as Harrison VA

(Makes you wonder if there isn't something going on here with a nuke plant)


Des Moines

Rapid City
