Description: Dr. Janette Sherman, M.D., Internist and Toxicologist. […] There’s shocking new evidence out that the Fukushima disaster may have led to the deaths of as many as 14,000 people…in America! For more on this – I’m joined by Dr. Janette Sherman – Internist and Toxicologist – and co-author of a new report on the link between an increase in deaths here in America and the ongoing Fukushima nuclear crisis.

Transcript Summary

At 2:30 in

  • After Fukushima, there has been an increase in deaths in the United States — This has been corroborated by findings of deaths, particularly of children younger than 1 year in British Columbia

At 5:00 in

  • We saw after Chernobyl high rates of thyroid cancer and leukemia that occurred within a year or two
  • The highest cause of death for children is cancer
  • If you have a 3 year old with cancer, obviously they didn’t take 20 years to develop it

Janette Sherman, M.D. specializes in internal medicine and toxicology with an emphasis on chemicals and nuclear radiation that cause illness, including cancer and birth defects. She graduated from Western Michigan University with majors in biology and chemistry and from the Wayne State University College of Medicine. Prior to medical school, she worked for the Atomic Energy Commission (forerunner of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission) at the University of California in Berkeley, and for the U.S. Navy Radiation Defense Laboratory in San Francisco. Thus began her long-time involvement with the subject of nuclear radiation. From 1976–1982 Dr. Sherman served on the advisory board for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Toxic Substances Control Act. She has been an advisor to the National Cancer Institute on breast cancer and to the EPA on pesticides.

    Thom Hartman has proven to be one of the strongest reporters on this issue in the American Milieu.

    Its shameful to live here in BC and have to here this from an American newsman on a Russian network.

    There is much criticism about the circumstance in America, however the case in Canada is extremely disturbing as well.

    • Anthony Anthony

      All that from Canada with some of the most painfully expensive cost of living and taxes in the world! A Premier (President) who completely gagged the press and questions in general during the main election DEBATE…strong arming his victory with noone saying a peep. Quite fucked in a way.

      Everyone in BC should move to Ontario or further east at least. BC should have been evacuated. I am starting to believe Toronto should be evacuated based on radioActivity in the food supply And radioactive poison on the air.

      Kevin, Thom’s not an American newsman, he works for Russia Today.

    “If you have a 3 year old with cancer, obviously they didn’t take 20 years to develop it”

    That’s a great line to remember for the inevitable discussions with industry apologists.

    Nothing hurts the nuclear war pigs more than the truth stated here, “If you have a 3 year old with cancer, obviously they didn’t take 20 years to develop it”. Hartmann’s program is very telling of the entire situation from the core melts to the health effects. It’s nice to see a reporter who does not shy away from real peer reviewed journals. Although I like Arnie Gundersen’s work I fear that he understates some of his findings. I hope more toxicology reports come out on the infant mortality rate and the current body count. This research must be reported so we all know the rate of fatalities and how quickly the mortality rates for seniors and infants has changed over the last 9 months.

      Great interview. Thom always has good coverage of Fukushima and its effects. I have seen this women before, I believe she was talking about Chernobyl right before Fukushima began. The government will never start regular food testing because they are afraid of free markets. A market can only be free with absolute knowledge, much like a democracy. Now imagine, California produce consistently registering high in radiation. Well, people would stop buying that in large quantities. Then, the real effects of radiation would be felt be the economy. A free market would not allow nuclear energy to exist as the entire cost, both health-wise and money-wise, is astronomical.

      P.S. When Ron Paul talks about free markets, he is using the idea I just stated here. We don’t have a single free market in the U.S. They are all controlled and influenced through secrecy, regulation (not the right kind to keep us safe and markets fair, but the kind that artificially influences) and large subsidies. Absolute truth and knowledge are the only way a market can be free and fair and that goes for democracy as well.

      • I wonder what the levels are in NYC and how permeated the food supply is already. I’ve never seen the office I work in so sick, overall, as I have this fall & winter. (I’ve been in the same office since 2004)

  • My often comments about St. Jude’s and the ever increasing numbers of Children coming to be treated there !

    St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is internationally recognized for its pioneering work in finding cures and saving children with pediatric cancer and other …

    Your donation makes a difference. St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance.

    Watch what your children are eating/drinking. Home, candy store, schools. Evil people do evil things.

    My duaghter is four years old. We are in the st bay area. She has been fighting off a cold for a while now. She has really dark circles under her eyes (she’s never had that happen before) I give her chlorella, calcium magnesium, bentonite clay, kelp iodine drops, selenium. What more can I do? She is coughing more and more. I feel helpless.

    The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists asked Dr. Sherman to write an article on Chernobyl, then rejected it just before deadline

    I can’t remember if this article is posted on Enenews anywhere? But it’s a must-read, OMG. Some clips, emphasis added:

    “All forecasts concerning thyroid cancer have been wrong… thyroid cancers have rapid onset and aggressive development.. affecting both children and adults.

    “The marked increase in thyroid disease and thyroid cancer in children is linked to the release of radioactive iodine. Of concern is damage to the thyroid of the unborn, with CONCOMITANT LOSS OF INTELLECTUAL FUNCTION… for every case of thyroid cancer there are about 1,000 cases of other forms of thyroid gland pathology. In Belarus alone.. up to 1.5 million people are at risk of thyroid disease.

    “…the overwhelming majority of Chernobyl-induced genetic changes will not become apparent for several generations.

    “In contaminated Ukrainian territories, children have been born without bones (“jellyfish children”), a condition seen previously only in the Marshall Islands after the nuclear tests of the 1950s.

    “…the incidence of officially registered CMs (congenital malformations) increased in all of the contaminated territories and was ESPECIALLY SIGNIFICANT IN AREAS WITH CS-137 LEVELS HIGHER THAN 15 CURIES PER SQ. KILOMETER (Ci/km2).

    “In Belarus, 24 percent of the children in the territories with Cs-137 levels less than 1 Ci/km2 were born with CMs; 30 percent had CMs in territories with levels of 1-5 Ci/km2, and 83 PERCENT HAD CMS in districts with contamination levels above 15 Ci/km2…

      “Recent studies show that schoolchildren from the most exposed areas in Sweden who were in the sensitive gestational period during the Chernobyl release were significantly less likely to qualify for high school.

      “Inexplicably, WHO had a special project on brain damage in the Chernobyl territories, which was abruptly stopped after the first definitive results…

        BTW I’m in Akron Ohio right now taking care of my 86-yo father who came down with pneumonia after trying to fix a clogged drain in his house. He is certain his sickness is directly related to black gunk in this drain. He is now home on oxygen and losing his memory at an alarming rate. Don’t know if it’s related to Fuke rads which did spike here, there’s so much pollution already in the eastern states, 90% (maybe 100%?) of the population has cancer /family members with cancer, memory-eating molds are rampant…

        But it makes Dr. Sherman’s work all that more vital to me. Her blog is
        Dozens of important entries there.

        The amazing book by the Russian scientists which she edited, ‘Chernobyl: Consequences of the Catastrophe for People and the Environment’ is available online in its entirety, FREE OF CHARGE. Everybody should download it in case it gets removed:

        THANK YOU ADMIN for introducing me to another grand hero in this fight.

    From the British Columbia Coroners Service, July 6, 2011:
    “Spike in sudden infant deaths spurs safety reminders”

    “There have been more sudden infant deaths in British Columbia in the first half of 2011 than for all of 2010.

    “Sudden infant deaths occur when a previously healthy baby dies in sleep-related circumstances, and no cause of death is found on autopsy…

    “The Coroners Service Child Death Review Unit (CDRU) completed a review of preliminary information on 21 sudden infant deaths that occurred between Jan. 1 and June 28, 2011. In 2010, there were 16 such deaths for the whole year. In each case, the infant was found unresponsive after having been placed to sleep, either at night or for a nap…

    desert_lady,….My prayers are with you and your Dad. Being from Akron, Ohio myself,…born and bred,….I feel your pain in many ways. I believe your Dad,…we know when we know. I’ll just bet he’s right,…darnit! 🙁
