Gov’t Report: Urgent that effects of radiation on human health be reduced — Experts need to investigate residents with ‘negative health effects’ — ‘Fallout is worrying people not only in Japan but also around the world’

Environment report urges nuclear decontamination
NHK
May 29, 2012

A government report says a more solid system to decontaminate the fallout from the nuclear accident last year must quickly be put in place.

[...]

It says the fallout is worrying people not only in Japan but also around the world, so quickly reducing the effects it will have on human health and on the environment is an urgent task.

To promote measures to reduce low-dosage exposure, the report says the government and experts should speak directly with residents and provide information about any negative health effects that they may be exposed to.

    "Provide Information on NEGATIVE effects"??!! Stop the fallout/radioactive fission from happening in Fukushima. The time for talk was last year. For those in the major fallout plume areas, they are already compromised and exposed; radiation needs to be removed from their bodies and environment. For others, with lesser levels of contamination, stopping the radiation poisoning of air and water/oceans is the next step. Not information of effects.

    Burning of radiactive debris is also not too smart, but who said the people with the incinerators were smart? They are just greedy for money.

  • Effects of radiation on humans has been studied since the 1940's. All governments with nuclear know the score. May they not fool you. The world soon, not just a few here, will be more than worried and with very good reason! Best to know everything, especially jet streams & remediation

    So many ways to spin the facts. It is really a study in the artful deviousness of TPTB when they are cornered, potentially anyway … the lumbering slowness and omni-present defense mechanisms of the masses come powerfully to the aid of the evil ones and are fully exploited by them.

    How to ease into the truth without upsetting the sheeple too much…you and your whole world have been poisoned… by us… for 'a fistful of dollars'… we now return you to your regularly scheduled programming…

    The "so-called" nuclear experts of the world need to find a way to stop the radiation from spewing. This needs to get done, pronto.

    TBP sez: "The "so-called" nuclear experts of the world need to find a way to stop the radiation from spewing"

    SP: So how did the USSR stop the fires at Chernobyl and build a concrete dome over Unit 4 in less than 8 months? A giant conscripted army of workers that ranged in estimates of 600,000 to 1 million. Over 250,000 received lifetime doses of radiation exposure in just a few days or weeks of work.

    They built a concrete dome around the wreckage of Unit 4 in eight months. Still, radiation levels ten year after the accident were dangerously high on the plant grounds… 30 to 50 times normal background levels.

    So much leakage in fact that the old dome is being replaced with a 1.5 billion dollar steel dome. It will be moved into place in 2015 if full funding is completed.

    So why does the Japanese government think their 20,000 workers (many days just dozens of workers are running three or four hour shifts) are capable of controlling a multi-reactor crisis 40 times the size of Chernobyl.

    The answer is they know they can't cool the runaway fuel nor contain it. It's just a puny holding action designed to keep the Japanese economy running as long as possible in the hopes some great miracle (divine wind) will save their country. But every day that passes brings them closer to admitting that all hope is lost. Japan is doomed. By geographic association so too is the Northern Hemisphere populations.

    Money and millions of workers may not help for this Pandora's…

    Box. Mutant human life will survive. Short lifespans, many birth defects. Affluent humans will attempt to flee the Northern Hemisphere and may find respite far south. Good luck with that migration. The radiation is slow, but persistent.

    This is not just a problem in Japan.

    It is truly an invisible world wide crisis that affects all towns and cities all over the globe…

    Here is just one example of MANY.. too many to count.
