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

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

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

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

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