United Nations Special Rapporteur on the right to health Anand Grover, after 11 days in Japan: Some of the people are of the opinion that the only issue is thyroid cancer amongst children.
There have been a number of reports that show that there are other cancers; they have not actually been linked to the Chernobyl disaster because, as you know, there was a clamp down of information that made it impossible linking them up in the first years after Chernobyl.
But there are a large number of cancer and other diseases.
Moreover, there’s been independent studies that shows there’s no threshold limit for what is known as a dose of ionizing radiation and the link to cancer and other diseases. […]
You have to understand that the majority of the people in the nuclear world, as it were, do have a very narrow position on Chernobyl, so that has actually dominated the discourse.
“I stressed that they should have an open-ended understanding of Chernobyl and not narrow” -Anand Grover
