C-HEART-33

 

Mainstream media is doing everything it can to spin this as nothing to worry about. After all, they’re not YOUR kids.

“Although this research focuses on events that occurred in Japan, the potential for nuclear accidents throughout the world is a global health concern,” said Kaori Murase, Ph.D., associate professor at Nagoya City University in Japan. “Our study suggests that a nuclear accident might increase the risk for complex congenital heart disease.”

In the four years following the Fukushima nuclear accidents, they found:

  • The number of operations for complex congenital heart disease in infants all over Japan increased 14.2 percent, whereas those performed on 1- to 17-year-old patients showed no significant change during the study period.
  • The complex congenital heart diseases that showed significant increases were those known to occur during various developmental stages of the heart.
  • The results suggest that damage occurred at various points in the early stages of heart development and not from damage to a single gene at a specific point in time.

“Nuclear accidents may have wide-ranging adverse effects on various types of congenital heart disease. The earlier the radiation exposure happens in a developing heart, the more likely it is that the nuclear accident could have a negative impact on more parts of the heart,” Murase said.

Researchers also note that, while the concentration of radiation in the air in Japan was declining in 2014, the number of operations for complex congenital heart diseases remained high.

 

There was an ACADEMY AWARD WINNING DOCUMENTARY about heart disease in children at Chernobyl, but your TV “news” pretends it never happened.

The Scientific and Technological Options Assessment reportreleased in November 2001 by the European Parliament showed that the combined effect of discharges from the La Hague and Sellafield reprocessing facilities constitutes “the world’s largest releases of radioactivity into the environment, corresponding to a large-scale nuclear accident every year.”

According to a Johnson State College student research paper, the United States began dumping radioactive waste in 1946, and the practice was carried on by 14 countries over a 48-year period. During this time, 80 dump sites were used all around the oceans.  Over that period it was estimated that radioactive dumping had reached a total of 84,000 terabecquerels.

“Using the world oceans as a dump” must stop.

Cancer on the Rise in Post-Fukushima Japan

In Fairewinds’ latest update of the ongoing nuclear catastrophe at Fukushima Daiichi, Chief Engineer Arnie Gundersen presents two reports that confirm the direct link of numerous cancers in Japan to the triple meltdown. Based upon data from Japanese medical professionals and utility owner of the meltdown site, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), Arnie concludes that heavy radioactive discharges will be the cause of enormous spikes in cancer in Japan.

TEPCO’s press release confirms the leukemia diagnosis for a TEPCO worker due to his ongoing exposure during the last four years to radiation from the Fukushima Daiichi triple meltdown. Sadly, during the early months of the Fukushima Daiichi emergency, most TEPCO workers did not wear the required dosimeters required to measure each employee’s exposure to radiation, which has made accurate assessment of the radiation doses received by TEPCO employees impossible.

The second report, provided by esteemed Japanese medical professionals, reveals that the incidence of thyroid cancer is approximately 230 times higher than normal in the Fukushima Prefecture.  This disturbing number for the people of Japan is solely due to the Fukushima Daiichi disaster and the ongoing radioactivity emanating from the decimated nuclear site.

In this video, Arnie recounts his presentation from 2013 at the New York Academy of Medicine where he forecast continuous radiation releases from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, and also the devastating health effects for the Japanese people, despite the chronically underestimated radiation exposure levels propagated by the International Atomic Energy Agency, and the Japanese government.

Doublespeak, cover-up, memory hole, poisoning of a population, the nuclear power industry is the greatest criminal racket around. It corrupts science, medicine, minds, and continues on as if unprecedented catastrophes haven’t happened — and they are still happening.

Fukushima – a Hushed Up Catastrophe

Risks of Leukemia in Nuclear Workers More Than Double Previous Estimate

Massive study of 300,000 nuclear workers disputes nuclear industry propaganda: leukemia risk 117% higher than governments claim, low levels significant, and Linear No Threshold model confirmed.

Third, it confirms risks even at very low doses (mean = 1·1 mGy per year). Unlike the Japanese bomb survivors’ study, it observes risks at low dose rates rather than extrapolating them from high levels.

Fourth, it finds risks do not depend on dose rate thus contradicting the ICRP’s use of a Dose Rate Effectiveness Factor (DREF) which acts to reduce (by half) the ICRP’s published radiation risks…

After Hiroshima and Nagasaki, a Third Nuclear Atrocity: the Corruption of Science

That is, there are 678 times more thyroid cancers than the Hiroshima-based ICRP model predicts.

This calculation is based on what was written in The Lancet – but nobody made the calculation. This on its own should show the authorities (and the public) that the game is up. But instead of doing the simple calculation, another article in The Lancet, written by Geoff Watts, praises the work of those at Fukushima Medical University, who are busy telling everyone that the increases in thyroid cancer cannot be caused by the radiation.

Physicians for Social Responsibility has an extensive rebuttal to the UNSCEAR rosy scenario 2014 “report.”

Critical Analysis of the UNSCEAR Report “Levels and effects of radiation exposure due to the nuclear accident after the 2011 Great East-Japan Earthquake and tsunami”

There are several contentious issues regarding the IAEA/ FAO foodstuff database. First of all, it only includes measurement data for I-131, Cs-134 and Cs-137 and so the UNSCEAR report only considered these three radionuclides in the assessment of doses from ingestion.58 Other radionuclides, such as Sr-89/90 were not taken into account. Also, no comment is made in the UNSCEAR report regarding the sites where and how the IAEA food samples were collected, raising the suspicion that selective sampling may have taken place.

…The dose assessments of the Fukushima workers cannot be relied upon

The UNSCEAR report lists 24,832 people who were employed on the site of the nuclear catastrophe as plant workers, emergency personnel and clean-up staff. Regarding their radiation exposure, UNSCEAR relies solely on data received from TEPCO itself.67

…The special vulnerability of the embryo to radiation is not taken into account

…Non-cancer diseases and hereditary effects were ignored by UNSCEAR

…Comparisons of nuclear fallout with background radiation are misleading

…UNSCEAR’s interpretations of findings are questionable

…UNSCEAR’s conservative method of calculating lifetime dose, this figure most probably represents a systematic underestimation
