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

Radioactive Fukushima food could be hitting UK shops through safety loopholes

The report follows revelations in Taiwan last month that more than 100 contaminated products from Fukushima were being sold in stores under false labels.

“The mainstream media — in print and online — did little to report on health risks to the general population or to challenge the narratives of public officials and their experts,”

News coverage of Fukushima disaster minimized health risks to general population

“It’s shocking to see how few articles discussed risk to the general population, and when they did, they typically characterized risk as low,” said Pascale, who studies the social construction of risk and meanings of risk in the 21st century. “We see articles in prestigious news outlets claiming that radioactivity from cosmic rays and rocks is more dangerous than the radiation emanating from the collapsing Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.”

In what should be considered an ongoing Crime Against Humanity, poisoning the Pacific Ocean with uncontrolled releases of radioactivity, the Fukushima debacle continues 4 years on.

Fukushima No. 1′s never-ending battle with radioactive water

he nightmare continues at Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, which suffered three reactor core meltdowns and is plagued daily by increasing amounts of radioactive water.

FUKUSHIMA 4 YEARS ON

Everyone responsible should, of course, be tried and imprisoned. Tepco should be dissolved and replaced immediately. An international force of experts and aid should descend upon the site and stop the radiation from entering the ocean. Atomic power should be outlawed as an unnecessary risk, and plants shut down permanently.

Already, 85 children have had surgeries for thyroid cancer, there are 112-113 children who are suspected of having cancer. When children get cancers it progresses very quickly. The former person in charge of health, Yamashita Shunichi, said it would be only a 1 in a million chance of children getting any kind of cancer because of radiation. But he was lying. Right now, it’s like 1 in 3,000 — it’s an epidemic

The head of the National Cancer Research Center estimated right now in Fukushima the rate of cancer has gone up 61 times. And yet the gov’t and also the hospitals related to the gov’t are saying this is not because of radiation.

After looking into the case, they contacted over 500 sailors who had become ill after the mission in Japan. Two-hundred-fifty of them answered and their stories form the backbone of the case they hope to argue before the court

“[T]the U.S., and to a lesser degree Russia, object to costly safety upgrades. The U.S. claims its nuclear safety controls are adequate despite the continued operation here of 22 identical Fukushima-design reactors.”
