Title: Anand Grover, United Nations special rapporteur, health investigator on Monday
Source: OPTVstaff
Date: Nov 26, 2012

Summary

  • I regret that the Japan gov’t did not distribute stable iodine
  • Regrettable that public was not informed of radiation plume forecast
  • The survey only checks thyroid, unfortunately narrow; Only uses bad Chernobyl data, ignores studies that point to cancer and other diseases
  • Concerned about parents being denied right to access their child’s medical documentation, must go through cumbersome freedom of information act procedure to get them
  • Govt should urgently strengthen enforcement of food safety

More from UN’s Grover: UN informs Japan: Radiation went far beyond Fukushima, affected people should get health checked -- Gov't not protecting residents properly -- Chernobyl data is no good, there was information blackout
