Summary of interview with Christopher Busby, expert on health effects of ionizing radiation

At :40 in

Yury Bandazhevsky, studied effects of cesium-137 on children in Belarus after Chernobyl
He found that children with just 20-30 Bq/kg of cesium-137 suffering cardiac arrhythmia (heart not beating properly) and were suffering heart attacks and dying
Not a question of cancer or leukemia (although that occurred as well), there were very high rates of heart disease in these children… manifesting heart disease usually only found in old people

At 4:00 in

Heart cells are non replaceable by-and-large
Only 1% of heart cells replaced in a year
Cesium-137 goes to muscle, so concentrates in muscle tissue of heart

At 5:00 in

It does seem from what people have been telling me in the Fukushima affected area, is they [children] are actually suffering heart attacks

At 6:40 in

Cesium-137′s effects on heart muscle cannot be repaired, heart tissue cannot be repaired
These children will suffer their whole life and die young

At 7:30 in

Post-Chernobyl Belarus showed an increase in cancer… but an “enormous” increase in heart disease

A very interesting report.

It's easy to think of this disaster only in terms of cancer risk, while forgetting the other health risks that occur from exposure. This clip is a good reminder.

Regardless, what a terrible mess.

Sorry to invade this thread, but have anyone seen this video yet?

The interesting part starts at around 9:20 into the video. I did not want to post a new thread since i am not sure if it has been posted before.
It basically claims that people are still abandoned in fukushima and you get to see Q&A with government/nuclear safety personnel with people desperately asking question without getting any real response back.

If the translation is right it seems like the government is just leaving them there to die.


And thanks for posting this thread.

Just a matter of time before it happens in our neighborhood.

These nuclear plants are just flawed by design and i don't have much hope that they will be replaced anytime soon.

The Evacuation Topic is not so easy to answer,
there is absolute no doubt for me that every Family with young Children
and the People who still want to get Kids need to be evacuated
from the Highly Contaminated Areas!

But for the People above 40-100 it is useless (???)
and should be not a mandatory Order!

The Japanese People who do not move in the '70-'80 for the big Towns like
Sendai, Tokyo-Metropolis, Nagoya or Kansai have a very strong Relationship with
their Home, many of them are the "Firstborns" who heritage the Home, the Fields
and the Plight to take care of the Ancestors!
This People cant and don't want to be Evacuated!

I'm sure he's a smart guy, and probably telling the truth.

But I can't take a grown man wearing a beret seriously.
