Lies About Fukushima From WHO
This story claiming that the Fukushima radiation is inconsequential is incredibly blatant,
in your face, out-and-out lying, folks. It sucks the breath right your of
your lungs to see how easily and nonchalantly these bastards utter their murderous
lies. See the three articles below this one for a few
illustrations of what I�m talking about:
WHO: Small cancer risk after Fukushima accident
People exposed to the highest
doses of radiation during Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant disaster in 2011 may
have a slightly higher risk of cancer but one so small it probably won't be
detectable, the World Health Organization said in a report released
A group of experts convened by
the agency assessed the risk of various cancers based on estimates of how much
radiation people at the epicenter of the nuclear disaster received, namely those
directly under the plumes of radiation in the most affected communities in
Fukushima, a rural agricultural area about 150 miles (240 km) north of
Some 110,000 people living
around the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant were evacuated after the massive
March 11, 2011, earthquake and tsunami knocked out the plant's power and cooling
systems, causing meltdowns in three reactors and spewing radiation into the
surrounding air, soil and water.
Experts calculated that people
in the most affected regions had an additional 4 to 7% overall risk of
developing cancers, including leukemia and breast cancer. In Japan, men have
about a 41% lifetime risk of developing cancer of an organ, while a woman's
lifetime risk is about 29 percent. For those most hit by the radiation after
Fukushima, their chances of cancer would rise by about 1
"These are pretty small
proportional increases," said Richard Wakeford of the University of Manchester,
one of the authors of the report.
"The additional risk is quite
small and will probably be hidden by the noise of other (cancer) risks like
people's lifestyle choices and statistical fluctuations," he said. "It's more
important not to start smoking than having been in
Experts had been particularly
worried about a spike in thyroid cancer, since iodine released in nuclear
accidents is absorbed by the thyroid, especially in children. After the
Chernobyl disaster, about 6,000 children exposed to radiation later developed
thyroid cancer because many drank contaminated milk after the
In Japan, dairy radiation
levels were closely monitored, but children are not big milk drinkers
WHO estimated that women
exposed as infants to the most radiation after the Fukushima accident would have
a 70% higher chance of getting thyroid cancer in their lifetimes. But thyroid
cancer is extremely rare and the normal lifetime risk of developing it is about
0.75 percent. That lifetime risk would be 0.5 percent higher for those women who
got the highest radiation doses as babies.
Wakeford said the increase in
such cancers may be so small it will probably not be
For people beyond the most
directly affected areas of Fukushima, Wakeford said the projected risk from the
radiation dropped dramatically. "The risks to everyone else were just
Some experts said it was
surprising that any increase in cancer was even predicted and believe that the
low-dose radiation people in Fukushima received hasn't been proven to raise the
chances of cancer.
"On the basis of the radiation
doses people have received, there is no reason to think there would be an
increase in cancer in the next 50 years," said Wade Allison, an emeritus
professor of physics at Oxford University, who was not connected to the WHO
report. "The very small increase in cancers means that it's even less than the
risk of crossing the road," he said.
Gerry Thomas, a professor of
molecular pathology at Imperial College London, accused the WHO of hyping the
"It's understandable that WHO
wants to err on the side of caution, but telling the Japanese about a barely
significant personal risk may not be helpful," she said.
Thomas said the WHO report
used inflated estimates of radiation doses and didn't properly take into account
Japan's quick evacuation of people from Fukushima.
"This will fuel fears in Japan
that could be more dangerous than the physical effects of radiation," she said,
noting that people living under stress have higher rates of heart problems,
suicide and mental illness.
