Nuclear Expert Arnie Gundersen, Fairewinds Energy Education: The Fairewinds site has been getting a lot of anecdotal evidence from people all over northern Japan. We just got an email just last week from a woman, whose two sisters were pregnant, and one child was born deformed and the other died in the womb.

Gundersen: Your symposium* is just one more opportunity to let people know in Japan that the experiences they’re feeling — the metallic taste on your tongue, the illnesses, the bloody noses, etc. — are not something that’s in your brain, and in fact these are real physiological issues that your government’s not addressing.
