Pr Chris Busby on children’s heart attacks in Fukushima, radioactivebsr, September 11, 2011:

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

At 4:00 in

  • 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

At 5:00 in

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

At 6:40 in

  • 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

At 7:30 in

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

  • Understanding the Millisievert
    Millisievert figures are tossed out by the media with little attention to explaining them. Millisieverts (mSv) are measurements of ionizing radiation absorbed by a human body. Geiger counters formally measured with Rems (Roentgen equivalent man) or millirems.
    The figures on Geiger counters now represent mSv units per hour. There is always a low level of measurable background radiation in our environment from celestial bodies and earthly elements.

      It just happened, they already are putting out there’s no radioactive leak while at the same time creating an exclusion zone for a possible leak.

  • Caveat Emptor

    Interview Professor Yuri Bandazhevsky April 2000

    “The research we conducted showed that the greatest danger is represented by the action of radionuclides in the body, first of radioactive cesium. If we do not end this process, the consequences can be tragic. Therefore a strict control of the presence of radioactive cesium in food is essential. This applies especially children, who are more sensitive to radioactive cesium.”

    “I note that this is not just or even primarily malignant tumors, but also pathological changes of intense metabolic systems, such as the cardiovascular, nervous, immune, endocrine, urinary, digestive and reproductive. ”

    “Numerous scientific research, both clinical and experimental, have shown the adverse action of even small quantities of radionuclides in the body, first of radioactive cesium, systems and vital organs. First I would point out the involvement of the cardiovascular system, observed even in small children. A proportional linear dependence was found between the amount of radioactive cesium in the body and incorporated into the heart muscle, and frequency as well as the severity of morphological and functional alterations. “

    It is a good idea, but I am not sure we can find. It appears that some data just vanish. But I have found this for Europe. You can compare it with Chernobyl`s contamination.

  • Caveat Emptor

    A Model of Cardiovascular Disease Giving a Plausible Mechanism for the Effect of Fractionated Low-Dose Ionizing Radiation Exposure:

    Atherosclerosis is the main cause of coronary heart disease and stroke, the two major causes of death in developed society. There is emerging evidence of excess risk of cardiovascular disease in various occupationally exposed groups, exposed to fractionated radiation doses with small doses/fraction. The mechanisms for such effects of fractionated low-dose radiation exposures on cardiovascular disease are unclear. We outline a spatial reaction-diffusion model for early stage atherosclerotic lesion formation and perform a stability analysis, based on experimentally derived parameters. We show that following multiple small radiation doses the chemo-attractant (MCP-1) concentration increases proportionally to cumulative dose; this is driven by radiation-induced monocyte death. This will result in risk of atherosclerosis increasing approximately linearly with cumulative dose. This proposed mechanism would be testable. If true, it also has substantive implications for radiological protection, which at present does not take cardiovascular disease into account. The major uncertainty in assessing low-dose risk of cardiovascular disease is the shape of the dose response relationship, which is unclear in high dose data. Our analysis suggests that linear extrapolation…

    Did you see that a 35 year old ex-soccer pro from Dallas suddenly died of a heart attack this past week? Minnesota coach Kill (brutally ironic name) collapsed from a seizure while on the side lines of a game. Venus Williams pulled out of the US Open because of fatigue and joint pain, which was diagnosed as some odd condition, but it sounds like CRP or uranium poisoning to me, her hands probably hurt so bad she can’t hold the tennis racket.

      Coach Kill has a history of seizures, it is a reaction to a medication he is on. It has happened before to him, and will most likely happen again.

      “Sources told WCCO-TV’s Mike Max that Kill was kept in the hospital longer than usual to try and determine what is causing his seizures. They said in previous instances, Kill was treated for his symptoms and released.

      Kill had warned his team of the possibility that he could have a seizure because of his battle with cancer..”

    The children of Chernobyl are just the tip of the iceberg

    “There’s also a range of cardiac degradation conditions attributed to the disaster; collectively dubbed Chernobyl Heart, it is these that have given our charity its name. The cardiorheumatology department at Gomel Children’s Hospital – the only dedicated children’s hospital in the entire Gomel region of south-eastern Belarus – diagnoses and treats kids afflicted by all manner of hereditary and congenital heart conditions, ranging from high blood pressure to holes in the heart. However, they can only diagnose and treat the weenies, not operate, so if any of the little mites need operations, they have to travel over 200 miles to Minsk, and then all the way back to Gomel for ongoing post-operative care.

    Most of the Chernobyl children at Gomel Children’s Hospital won’t see their parents again. In some cases they’re orphans, and assuming they survive their illnesses (which is never a given) they’ll probably end up in a forlorn orphanage somewhere, denied the chances that many of us take for granted. In other cases their parents couldn’t afford to look after them, so they’ve just been abandoned to the not-so-tender mercies of the Chernobyl legacy.”

  • Clocka

    In Japan, before World War II,

    leprosy was very common.

    Little children with leprosy were sent to ‘sanatoriums’, little better than concentration camps, and most of them stayed there for the entire life.

    WWII and the American occupation bypassed them, since nobody really wanted to do anything with them. After the antibiotics were introduced most of them were cured (though with residual disfigurements), but since they were never trained for life in the real world, most of them returned to the ‘sanatoriums’ where about 1,000 of them still live now.

    They are still there, and will probably renamed and to be used for the children of Fuku.

        Thanks to Father Damien, later a Saint (I believe so), Molokai got screwed.

        All other Hawaiian islands became popular tourist destination, even Lanai. Nobody goes to Molokai because of Damien, who was not even born there (he was a Belgian).

        He might have bettered the lot of a few patients, but he doomed the rest of Molokai.

        When the last of the residents of Kalaupapa dies, the island should change its name to something else.

        In any case, the children of Fuku will have a very bleak future, probably ‘sheltered’ outside from general population for life.

    Changes in Coronary Heart Disease Risk Among Japanese
    Hiroyasu Iso, MD

    “The present report reviews original articles on population-based surveys of the mortality, incidence, and risk factors of CHD. It focuses on their trends since the 1960s because Japan has experienced rapid changes in lifestyles and environment accompanying socioeconomic development and maturation. “

    “Age-adjusted mortality rates from CHD declined 50% for men and 65% for women between 1969 and 19928,9 and has continued to decline.1,2 According to the World Health Organization database, the age-adjusted annual CHD mortality rate in 2000 was 37 per 100 000 for men and 18 per 100 000 for women, which was the lowest among developed countries”

    “The decline in CHD mortality, in conjunction with an increase or no change in CHD incidence in Japan, may be accounted for by improvements in medical treatment for CHD and/or decreased severity of CHD during the past decades. In fact, the number of emergency medical centers equipped with an intensive care unit or a cardiac care unit in Japan stood at 17 in 1978, 103 in 1989, and 201 in 2007.1 In addition, the in-hospital case fatality rates at hospitals with cardiac care units declined by >50% between the early 1980s and the late 1990s, probably because of improvements in treatment, including thrombolytic therapy and percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty.”

      The Legacy of Chernobyl Reactor 4
      Written By: Cheryl A. Cohen
      The United Nations Commission on Chernobyl reports the following statistics:

      “8,400,000 people in Belarus, Ukraine and Russia were exposed to the radiation, which is more than the population of Austria. About 155,000 sq. km of territories in the three countries were contaminated, which is almost half of the total territory of Italy. Agricultural areas covering nearly 52,000 sq. km, which is more than the size of Denmark, were contaminated with cesium-137 and strontium-90, with 30-year and 28-year half-lives respectively. Nearly 404,000 people were resettled but millions continued to live in an environment where continued residual exposure created a range of adverse effects.”

      “Finally, we learn about Chernobyl Heart–an expression coined locally that refers to the heart condition known as a ventricular septal defect (VSD). VSDs, both single and multiple, seem to occur with greater frequency in children born after the meltdown. A VSD is a hole in the wall (septum) between the two lower chambers of the heart (the ventricles). It allows oxygenated blood from the left ventricle to mix with oxygen-poor blood in the right ventricle. Cardiac surgeons often use a synthetic patch to repair VSDs. Other congenital heart anomalies that appear to occur at a greater than normal frequency include pulmonary stenosis, Ebstein’s anomaly, tetralogy of Fallot, and atrial septal defect.”

I hope the world gets a chance to glimpse at this forgotten horror and perhaps, like the Dr. Novick and the volunteers and staff of the International Children’s Heart Foundation and the Chernobyl Children’s Project, to use their skills and resources to help the victims in Belarus, Ukraine, and Russia. To learn more about this ongoing humanitarian crisis, please visit the United Nations and Chernobyl and For more information about the film and how you can help, contact the International Children’s Heart Foundation.”

    • arclight arclight

      in my research the japanese still come out tops in not getting heart disease, even given the other possible causations…effects from ceasium isotopes may have peaked in the nineties, as well as better/more treatment fascillities, and that might be a good sign for the future (50+ years after the coriums stop fuming! presuming there is no plutonium/uranium/strontium compounds or isotopes etc?)

    • Terranigma1 Terranigma1

      Do you mean early onset of first menses and increased height if you consume a lot of dairy products? I’ll have to disagree with you. I have a Czechoslovakian grandma who had her first menses when she was nine or ten years old. The only dairy products her family ate or drank was an occasional sip of goat’s milk. (family farm goat) This grandma wouldn’t put milk in her tea or coffee, nor would she drink milk from a glass. (there was no cow’s milk available) Since they were near poverty level farmers, they never ate many meat products, and were considered lucky if they had meat once a week. Her American born granddaughters’ and great granddaughters’ menses were all much later than hers, in fact, one was at age 15!

    Effective Reduction of C-137
    (Repost from July 12, 2011)

    Based on the ongoing bio-accumulation of C-137 within the food chain, my alarm and concern for children within the northern hemisphere has recently increased.

    As we have correctly anticipated, C-137, a potent potassium mimic, has entered the potassium pathways within the cells of all living things, to travel up the food chain into the human population.

    Increase in infant mortality and SIDS rates, tragic first evidence of the coming disease tsunami that is now on it’s way.

    The same tragic dynamic that made Bikini Atoll uninhabitable, is slowly transforming the lands of Japan, Hawaii Alaska, Canada and the continental US, into the site of a brewing genetic holocaust.

    I am alarmed that the parents of young infants and toddlers are more afraid of the protective measures for their children, than they are of the C-137 contained within their children’s food. I find this odd.

    The therapeutic modality is available. Yet, in spite of life saving knowledge, parents are not ready to use the therapy for themselves, let alone for their children.

    The Apple Pectin Protocol was used from 1996 to 2007 on more than 160,000 children with success. Yet in spite of the efficacy and safety of the protocol, it has been disregarded in wake of the Fukushima Disaster.

    The Apple Pectin Protocol


    The Noah Family follows the therapeutic protocols for C-137 decorporation developed for children, in the wake of the Chernobyl disaster.

“For practical reasons the curative-like use of apple-pectin food additives might be especially helpful for effective decorporation of Cs-137.

    From 1996 
to 2007 a total of more than 160,000 Belarussian children received pectin food additives during 18 to 25
days of treatment (5 g twice a day).”

“As a result, levels of Cs-137 in children’s organs decreased after each
course of pectin additives by an average of 30 to 40%.”
