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.
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.
