I get your point fully and I think you have made a good observation.

To clarify what the OP is suggesting; there is a possibility that these people living on Christmas Island may be are deliberately placed in a radioactive environment. It is a possibility.

Really ? Are you daft man ? The government has done Nuclear testing on an island where people want to take asylum.It was like letting the people continue to live in Fukushima, they're (Possibly) making humans live on a radioactive island.

I agree. The treatment of Asylum Seekers is pretty disgusting as a rule. Yes, the radioactive fallout is everywhere, too.

I really believe that there has been a huge rise in cancer all over the world (and other strange diseases, too) because of nuclear testing and accidents. We are all already paying the price - leukemia in children, breast cancer in women, the list goes on and on. All environmentally linked IMO. Try proving that one, though, when you don't have access to all the statistics?

Cool to meet you by the way.

your right, huge rise in cases and diseases that once effected mid aged people are killing plenty of kids now.
but its not just the testing, the effects of chernobyl and fukishima spread all the world and will stay for hundreds of years, cigarettes, technoligies such as phones and microwaves, processed and frozen foods..
but i think that in a way governments need this stuff because imagine how much more overcrowded the world would be if they didnt let people smoke and everything else
haha yeah, were probably not ever going to be able to prove it but we sure know..think about it, if things like mobile phones didnt cause cancer dont you think the mobile phone companies with billions of dollars would have the research out that says they dont. they have unlimited resources and money but somehow all we hear is 'were not to sure really but we think they are safe'
its a joke
nice to meet you to

I can't believe this sorry, I know a girl from Christmas Island and her family had lived there for many years and no one had ever mentioned radiation or had any ailment associated with radiation poisoning. There is a town on Christmas Island and if it wasn't safe there they wouldn't all be living there wilfully.

no im not daft as you say just making a point about blindness there are none as blind as those who refuse to see and yes there were tests on the north part of the island and yes radiation is wide spread over the globe just check how many nuclear tests have been done since the man spoke those words IAM BECOME DEATH .destroyer of worlds dig at me all you want it wont change the facts :

The people who should really be concerned with radiation are those that were there during the testing and, to some degree, long time residents of the island. Asylum seekers being housed on the island today, in my opinion, are not at risk.

Derek is one of many veterans fighting the government for recognition that their involvement in nuclear testing in the late 1950s is now having a serious effect on their health.

No they didn't - the Christmas Island the asylum seekers are being sent to it is an Austalian territory in the Indian Ocean

You are thinking of Kiritmati
