Scientists: Over 60,000,000 killed by nuclear fallout… More than 120,000,000 cancers from radioactive releases… Doesn’t include millions more dead babies and fetuses — Professor: “Horrifying… This is a war crime far greater in magnitude than any that has occurred in recorded human history” (VIDEO)

Transcript excerpt from the documentary ‘Atomic Wounds’ – see IMDB page (emphasis added): Starts at 50:00 in — “Since the explosion of the first atomic bomb in 1945, there have been several thousand tests in the atmosphere and underground… Hundreds of supposedly secured nuclear sites are still active and the atomic waste they cause are dispersed everyday… The official number of deaths from cancer due to nuclear activities since 1945 is 1,000,100. Taking into account low level radiation, European researchers have upped this estimate to 61 million. In other words 60 times the UN official figure.”

European Committee on Radiation Risk (ECRR’s Wikipedia page), 2010 (pdf): Global consequences of exposures from nuclear project based on UNSCEAR figures up to 1989… ECRR yield: Cancer death – 61,619,512; Cancer total – 123,239,024; Infant death – 1,600,000; Foetal death – 1,880,000

Latvian Academy of Science, presentation by Prof. Chris Busby of the University of Ulster, 2009 (pdf): ECRR calculations show that this has resulted in more than 60 million excess cancer deaths worldwide due to exposures up to 1995… The ECRR 2003 model makes clear that the contamination of the environment from nuclear discharges comes at a very great cost in human suffering for those now living and their descendants.

Prof. Chris Busby, University of Ulster, 2009 (pdf): The global death yield of the nuclear age to 1992 has been horrifying. According to objective calculations by the European Committee on Radiation Risk… 61 million cancer deaths; 1,600,000 infant deaths; 1,880,000 foetal deaths; There has been a loss of life quality of 10% (in terms of illnesses and ageing effects). The blame for this can be squarely placed at the door of those scientists and administrators (WHO, UNSCEAR, ICRP) who developed and supported the scientific risk models. This is a war crime far greater in magnitude than any that has occurred in recorded human history.

    Radiophobia – IAEA Blames Victims For All Cumulative Radiation Damage And Negative Health Effects, Claims All Man Made Radiation Heals People Via Hormesis
    http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2014/10/radiophobia-iaea-blames-victims-for-all.html

    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

      The IAEA implements the ICRP radiation risk model which does not include hormesis theory. In the event that the official guidelines were changed to include hormesis, it would be a new low in scientific error which is already evident in the existing model.

      Fixating on hormesis as the official justification for allowing nuclear pollution is like saying the law allows people to walk dogs because dog bites are good for you

      • The IAEA blames “Radiophobia” for ALL symptoms of low dose radiation exposure. They are calling for an end to all radiation victim or radiation refugee aid programs. In an IAEA report from 2005, they claim that radiophobia creates a victim mentality in a totally healthy population. This IAEA claim is not only cynical, but potentially very dangerous for the health of the affected population, especially if they live in a very radiation contaminated area, where they are eating radiation contaminated foods and drinks.
        http://www.ippnw-students.org/chernobyl/coverup.html

        Radiophobia is pretty much the same as hormesis, wouldn't you agree Code?

        Here is the source material…
        https://inis.iaea.org/search/search.aspx?orig_q=RN:20008276

        Are you defending the IAEA by the way, and what they do, plus how they do it?

        • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

          Does the IAEA "Claims All Man Made Radiation Heals People Via Hormesis"? If so, I havent seen it.

          The IAEA is not the only official body adopting the ICRP no threshold linear model.
          "The United States National Research Council, the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements, and the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Ionizing Radiation (UNSCEAR) all agree that radiation hormesis is not clearly shown, nor clearly the rule for radiation doses"

          Blaming radiophobia on low level radiation effects is an incredible criminal act. No doubt many authorities believe it.

          The people that implicate hormesis theory for the failure of our lawful radiation standards do a disservice to the anti nuclear community. It is not factual for one, but moreover they lend support to a no threshold linear dose model. Busby et al are staking their professional careers on fighting this model.

          Thousands of studies show some kind of hormesis effect from various stressors. Oxidative stress, exercise etc. What good does it do to dismiss it all? Thats like censorship or letting emotion rule inquiry. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hormesis

          before your unfounded accusations take off, let me repeat; hormesis is no justification for poisoning people and the planet, nor do I think low levels of anthropogenic radiation are good for life

          • One needs to be very careful when trying to equate sunshine or bananas with radioactive heavy metal poisons, which is what most hormesis promoters attempt to do.

            • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

              Dr G, you still have the problem of background radiation. If you incriminate all radiation sources equally as you do, and as does the IAEA, then you are stuck with the comparison of background to man made. You tried unsuccessfully to confront this by claiming man created the background radiation too. That move was damaging. Instead, you could have focused on the differences of radiation. I dont care how many of our respected scientists say there is no safe dose because it doesnt change the fact that nature has always lived and thrived in a sea of radioactivity.

              "we live in a sea of radiation, the danger was insignificant until man added new radioisotopes.–Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds–"

              70 bq/kg of constant internal radiation from potassium was not harmful but 70 bq/kg from cesium-137 causes irreversible lesions in organs. I can see this causes cognitive dissonance. You wave the flag of hormesis, you think I am supporting the IAEA, you scramble to come up with answers and fail, not even realizing your error blithely maintaining your position without correcting the mistakes

              • from a distance from a distance

                Code, are you understanding the distinction?

                When we are talking about hormesis, we are talking about the false lie of MAN-MADE-RADIONUCLIDE hormesis.

                There is no hormesis effect from MAN-MADE radionuclides.

              • from a distance from a distance

                Code, once again you blur the distinction.

                When scientists like Dr. Gofman say there is no safe dose of radiation, they are referring to MAN-MADE-RADIONUCLIDES produced from fission in nuclear power plants, nuclear meltdowns, atomic testing…

                  and

                  "we live in a sea of radiation, the danger was insignificant until man added new radioisotopes.–Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds–"

                  That is blurring the distinction for you?

                  Science and educated citizens like Ian Goddard will tell you there is no difference between a beta or gamma or alpha whether its man made or natural. What is YOUR cogent reply to that?

          • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

            We have identified a major fault in nuclear science; they unquestioningly group all sources of radiation and extrapolate effects therefrom. But each chemical is unique. This is dramatically shown by the radiation density, or specific activity. This alone is adequate proof that all radionuclides should not be grouped together into one model. Animals and nature make accumulated point sources of radiation from high specific activity radionuclides which is impossible for ones of low specific activity. This does not even address the chemical toxicity, frequency effects or any number of known or unknown factors.

            This is no small point and its relevant to the subject and even to hormesis.

            Weve raised this idea too many times, but it seems to have no effect; The idea is that natures standard has always included radiation. We would be brazen to assume we know everything about natures standard. Who would be audacious enough to remove all of natures radioactivity if they could do so? In a nutshell, life was thriving before the nuclear age. No somatic morbidity or genomic instability evident after untold generations.

            Now man lumps all radiation sources and proclaims fallout is safe because the radiation is low compared to background. There is an assumption. So called experts assume that morbidity from low measured levels of fallout must be psychosomatic because after all, they get more radiation from background sources and this is all proven by the ICRP linear no threshold…

                Dr G, I am truly puzzled and frankly just a bit, actually a tiny little bit, disturbed by your continued stance, as represented by your question to Code as to whether he supports the scumbag IAEA. If you were a mere bot, programmed to ask such questions, one could understand: there goes that bot again; my eyes roll.

                But you do elsewhere seem to genuinely be attempting to reach for a union of the ethical/spiritual and the intellectual/scientific. And you do a prodigious amount of work, much of which I think is on track and helpful.

                So I am led to wonder if what underlies the seeming antipathy of your stance re Code on this general topic is either your suspicion that Code is a clever troll, and so you must cross word/swords,or, that you find it difficult to navigate rethinking a position, since that might include correcting your previous positions shortcomings, which is a frequent, and perhaps overwhelmingly normal, human characteristic. At any rate, from my perspective, whether Code be troll or saint or seer or some other kind of guy, what he has been putting forth on this subject seems on the whole clear, understandable, and correct, in my opinion.

              Code, I can't understand why people don't get what you are saying regarding heavy metal radionuclides. I can't follow all the scientific details, but from a layman's point of view you are right on the money.
              My body is intimately familiar with heavy metals. My take is that it's the synergy of radiation and heavy metals that does the bodily damage. Particularly regarding internal dosage. Remember the guy that discovered plutonium said it was "fiendishly toxic"

                Hi danger kitty. Yes, heavy metals seem to be a big problem even without radioactivity. Pity the orca!

                I guess I would re-emphasize the specific activity (radiation per mass) and unnatural – new to the earth- nature of fission products, even despite the metal aspect. The fact that they can determine the different isotopes radiologically proves that even the radiation is different -not as simple as alpha beta gamma etc. (Whether frequency and sub harmonic effects make a difference has yet to be determined.)

                These fission products have a way of creating point sources of radiation and ionization. Uneven distribution like this is something barely considered in mainstream science

                  I dont think people realize the implication of grouping all radiation sources. They think its an unimportant side note, when they believe that the nuclear industry is blasting the planet with radiation. But the significance is revealed in the official position; make sure you read the last sentence.

                  'Overall, the worldwide average effective dose rate from natural background is about 2400 microSv anually or 2.4 mSv a. For comparison, worldwide average effective dose rates from weapons fallout peaked at 113 microSv a (about 5% of natural background) in 1963 and have since fallen to about 5.5 microSv a (about 0.2% of natural background). >> These values perhaps serve to emphasise that even gross insults to the natural environment from anthropogenic releases of radioactive materials are likely to be of limited significance when set in the context of the ambient radioactive environment within which all organisms, including humans, have developed.<<'

    The AEC used fake "surprise inspections" at the Kerr McGee Cimarron plutonium rod facility, before they murdererd Karen Silkwood and tried to cover that up, too!

    Petitions for Rulemaking (PRM-20-28, PRM-20-29, and PRM-20-30)
    regarding radiation risk models and permissible maximum radiation exposures to the public and to workers.

    From the report:

    "Endorsing hormesis or even a threshold of cancer risk as the basis for regulation of exposure to ionizing radiation could lead to a public health disaster that would be difficult to control,
    especially if promoting radiation exposure becomes entrenched in the economic system. The petitioners, who exhibit a considerable amount of contempt for scientists who support the linear no-threshold view (“hogwash”, “no science here” “reminiscent of the Catholic Church at the time of Galileo”23), have entirely ignored the possibility that they are the ones who may be wrong, that their speculation that “radiation may be hormetic”24 could lead to widespread illness, dislocation, and death."

    … The coalition’s website, titled the East Japan Soil Measurement Project, shows radiation levels in soil samples taken from more than 1,900 sites in Tokyo and 16 prefectures, from northeastern Japan to the Pacific side of the central Japan.

    The project was started partly because parents were concerned that local governments were using only airborne radiation levels to determine if outdoor areas were safe for children. …

    “We cannot feel safe without data on soil contamination because children play with earth, wipe the mouths with their dirty hands and inhale dirt blown up by wind, exposing themselves to the risk of internal radiation exposure,” Sugawara said about why he undertook the project. “If local officials would not bother to measure soil contamination, we decided to do so on our own.” …

    After several years and multiple studies, the Obama administration—led by the Department of Energy (DOE)—finally has a new plan to get rid of the excess plutonium generated by the U.S. nuclear weapons program: dilute the fissile material with non-radioactive materials and dispose of it in a geological repository.

    Tepco’s compensation payments have reached nearly 6.125 trillion yen.

    2.65 trillion yen has been paid to the more than 70,000 mandated evacuees that were ordered to abandon their homes by Tokyo in 2011.

    This means that every man, woman and child has accrued roughly 380 million yen.

    At the average exchange rate over the past five years, each evacuee has made roughly $350,000 (USD). Further, this does not include the $1,000 per month being paid-out to each evacuee for mental anguish, which was grandfathered back to the summer of 2011, which would bring individual earnings to nearly $640,000 (USD).

    Beyond the individual compensation payments, nearly 3 trillion yen has been disbursed for property and business compensation.

    Over 10,000 workers staying for a year or longer for Fukushima nuke plant decommissioning
    24 April 2016
    At least 10,000 workers are scheduled to stay in Fukushima Prefecture for more than a year to engage in decommissioning work at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant of Tokyo Electric Power Co.

    This was disclosed on April 23 in a report on the outcome of a survey by the Reconstruction Agency during a meeting of experts advising the central and local governments on the future outlook of 12 municipalities evacuated in the aftermath of the 2011 nuclear accident at the plant. The meeting was held in the prefectural government office in Fukushima city.

    It was the first time that the realities of long-stay workers have come to light. Many of them desire to have a secure living environment and means of transport. The agency will reflect the survey results in its policy measures to improve working conditions for smooth progress in the nuclear plant decommissioning.

    The survey, conducted from Feb. 25 to March 29, covered about 30,000 workers at 24 selected companies involved in the decommissioning work, including subcontractors. …

    Fishermen in Fukushima’s Soma city resume "asari" clam fishing after 6-year hiatus
    21 April 2016

    Fishing for "asari" Japanese littleneck clams in Matsukawaura, a lagoon off Soma city, Fukushima Prefecture, was resumed on April 20, ending a self-imposed ban in place since the 2011 nuclear accident at Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s Fukushima Daiichi plant. The first asari haul in six years enlivened a local port.

    A total of 25 fishermen from the Soma-Futaba Fisheries Cooperative Association set sail on 10 boats shortly after 8 a.m. Clad in waterproof pants fitted with boots, they used long-handled dredges to scoop the shellfish. Their combined catch of the day was about 300 kilograms, equivalent to a daily target on one voyage.

    The haul was subjected to screening for radioactive substances, but none was detected, according to the association. The clams are left alone to allow them to discharge sand and other impurities before shipment to supermarkets and restaurants on and after the following day.

    The central government has not instructed local fishermen to refrain from asari fishing since the disaster, but the association will regard the restart as "test fishing" in light of consumer concerns over radioactive contamination of the seashell species. Fishing will be conducted once a week through August. …

    • rogerthat

      Before the disaster, Matsukawaura used to be crowded with people seeking to gather asari. There is no prospect in sight of lagoon tideland being restored as a shellfish-digging beach because recovery work has not made headway.

    Record number of Hanford workers sickened by toxic vapors
    Susannah Frame, KING May 05, 2016

    An unprecedented number of workers at Hanford have been exposed to dangerous chemical vapors since Thursday, April 28. In one week's time a total of 47 people either sought medical attention after suffering symptoms due to chemical vapor releases or as a precautionary measure.

    Symptoms reported by workers include a headache, burning nose and throat, nausea, a metallic taste in the mouth, elevated blood pressure, and dizziness. Experts hired by the Department of Energy, which owns Hanford, have found even a short burst of exposure to chemical vapors can cause long term health effects such as brain damage and lung disease.

    Workers sickened by the sudden release of toxic gasses at Hanford has been a problem for nearly 25 years, but those familiar with the nuclear site cannot remember so many people falling victim in such a short period.

    “What’s happening at Hanford isn’t right, and I am exploring further legal options to keep our workers safe,” said Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson.

    Ferguson filed a lawsuit in September against the U.S. Department of Energy and its contractor, Washington River Protection Solutions (WRPS) over the lack of protections …

    • rogerthat

      for workers. Ferguson filed the suit after an eight-month investigation by the KING 5 Investigators, “The Human Toll of Hanford’s Dirty Secrets”. The 2014 series exposed that the federal government and its contractors hid information about the adverse health effects of vapors to workers for decades and to this day aren’t following their own expert’s advice on how best to keep workers safe.

      Local Union 598, which represents Hanford pipefitters and welders, and the Seattle-based advocacy group Hanford Challenge, also filed a lawsuit to force protection for workers on the same day as the Attorney General.

      “The events of the past several days are a disturbing illustration of why I filed a lawsuit against the federal government to protect Washingtonians who work at Hanford,” said Ferguson, who will visit the site on Thursday. Ferguson also called the continued episodes of worker exposures “shameful.”

      On May 4, two more evacuations were enacted at the site after workers smelled odors and experienced symptoms. Nine workers went to Hanford’s onsite medical clinic. On May 5, an additional five workers went to the onsite medical clinic due to exposures suffered earlier in the week. ….

    German Study Proves It – 95% Of Greek "Bailout" Money Went To The Banks

    … Some 95 percent of the 220 billion euros disbursed to Greece since the start of the financial crisis as loans from the bailout mechanism has been directed toward saving the European banks. That means about 210 billion euros was eventually channeled to the eurozone credit sector while just 5 percent ended up in state coffers, according to a study by the European School of Management and Technology (ESMT) in Berlin.

    “Europe and the International Monetary Fund have in previous years mainly saved the banks and other private creditors,” concluded the report, published yesterday in German newspaper Handelsblatt. ESMT director Jorg Rocholl told the financial newspaper that “the bailout packages mainly saved the European banks.”

    The economists who took part in the study have analyzed each loan separately to established where the money ended up, and concluded that just 9.7 billion euros – less than 5 percent – actually found its way into the Greek budget for the benefit of citizens.

    “This is something that everyone suspected, but few people actually knew. That has now been confirmed by the study.

    Professor Gabrielle Hecht is based at the Department of History at the University of Michigan, where she has also directed the Program in Science, Technology, and Society. She has authored several award winning books about ‘nuclear things’.

    My obsession with nuclear things began as a teenager. In 1978, my family moved to Zurich, where for two years we rented a suburban home. Following Swiss law, the house had its own fallout shelter in the basement, complete with a thick lead door.

    We never talked about this room, any more than we talked about the rifle that my father kept in the attic, issued to him as a member of the Swiss army reserve. Both reflected the fears of a landlocked nation. Squeezed between the shelter and the rifle, surrounded by mountains, I sometimes found it difficult to breathe. …

      Radiation is bio-accumulative. Bio-accumulative up the food chain, and bioaccumulative in an individual. The nuclear industry divides the different radiation sources. But a person is subjected over a lifetime to all the sources and they act synergistically to harm a person multitudes of orders above just one exposure. And they act synergisticlly with all the other electromagnetic radiations sources and all the toxins and dioxins.

      @HEART , hoi , sorry i have a OT question.. do you happen to have ever readed or are otherwise aware of an somebody's work that say's a thing or two about

      "BALANCE" , that are totally out of the box thinking ? Philosofically or otherwise..something..i need fringe aka original language..anything that can help visualising the matrix of the lifeblob differently.. its interconnectedness allows for it to be visualised as a matrix.. but i need something..some input..totally unknow..accidently fitting lol..

      I think i'm on to something..but i'm trapped at the intuition/philosofical try and error formulating possibilities level..i feel posessed by a aha-erlebnis trying to be born lolol.. i think the alogoritme(s) that directs the evolution of the Universe..contains a piece of code that is vital for a potentially unlimeted bunch of things..

      That piece of code that i feel must exist.. and once understood i think has tremendous capabilities.. is for example something that is both responsible for shaping our planetairy lifeblob in to being/consience and is at the same time to be mandatory obeyed by the matrix as a whole and equally by each of its building blocks/crossroads.. the balance of the whole matrix of interconnected balances..obey's a certain law truout its lifeseeking/complexifying evolution.. the evolution of the universe..

          Free thinking..free combining in original way's is what i need..

          In a lifeblob..there is something that makes the combination work..in a working lifeblob there is a commoniality..a specifik way of relating to eachother.. and it is part in the determination within every "life" blob/ matrix of what parameters every balance/polarisation has to exist and evolve by ..and at the same time there must be a specifik way of relating towards eachother.. an inherent very specifick condition/parameter that allows a form of mutual compatibility that works the same on the micro level as the makro level..as above so below.. a compatibility that allowed the specifick flow of conscience that is shaping the planetary evolution on the big scale to merge with the specifick conscience flowing tru the lifeblob.. and become one..

          I feel like there is with mathematical certainty a piece of code..that NEEDS to be understood by humanity.. everything within a succesfully evolving lifeblob is obeying the same law ON ALL SCALES SIMULTANIOUSLY !!

          By being overpowerd by the system as a whole or free will does not make a difference for the outcome.. but disobedience of that specifik "behaviour code" is with absolute certainty a destructif force..

            • DUDe DUD

              Just like it is possible to determine a difference between a sum that is nothing but the sum of the building blocks..and the sum where the outcome becomes more then that..a synergetic effect occured at a specific combination of variables that generates a plus..life is like that..the Universe/Life evolves towards complexity..constantly increasing the possible amount of combination's that can be formed..the amount of possible shapes for matter or energy..determines the amount of shapes that can be used by conscience..etc

              On an infinite timeline..as long as that certain code is obeyed..there is no logical limit at the amount of shapes conscience can flow tru..no limit at the possible size of a conscience system/being..and ultimately no limit at the amounts of conscience system's that can merge/fuse togheter and become more then the sum of the parts yet again..

                There has to be a set of parameters wherein , the relation of one unit , one self , with the self and the self in relation with the whole..if "positioned" correctly..by lack of a better word..becomes mutual beneficial..for the self and for the whole..looping..and reinforcing

                Mutual beneficiallity is mandatory..for life.. you can weave many things you can call a webb..but the lifeweb..has mutual beneficiallity presence one way or the other everywhere..

                Its not our blindness that makes us unique..its the specifik combination of specifick blindness with specifick powers/capability's that makes us the ultimate nightmare of life..we are so capable that we can stumble offroad..where our own indicidual balance no longer resonate as an harmonics with the specifick lifesupporting balance of the whole..stumble and survive long enough to believe our blindness is actually a vision..and get stuck in that selfexterminating checkmate disbalance..

                We try to compensate in our blindness with violence..

                What we have to do is to find the piece of code that dictates the evolution/transformation from basic conscience energy towards an infinitly complex, infinite divers expression of merged conscience..an unlimited expression of selfawareness on all levels..
