Video Description (Google Translation)

It is a video of a program meeting to consider the aging Fukushima nuclear power plant on February 10, is doing. (Kai radioactivity measurement project to consider the aging Fukushima nuclear power plant) Mr. Kazumasa Aoki is a result of the child’s WBC Date City, Fukushima Prefecture, 6000 Bq* / body is around 7 minutes and 37 seconds talking to have been detected.

Summary Translation by Fukushima Diary

According to citizen’s organization for Fukushima effect, 6,000 Bq/body was measured from a child in Da-te city. The child has been living in Da-te city since 311.

Da-te city government conducted whole body counter test for children. [...]

*1 becquerel [Bq] represents a rate of radioactive decay equal to 1 disintegration per second

    Can anyone interpret what this means? Put it in a context? I need it for today's Nuclear Hotseat podcast. Thanks!

      Hi Auntie Nuke, looking forward to the next podcast.

      The body weight of the child is not mentioned above. A large 60kg (132 pound) child with a total body radioactivity of 6,000 Bq would have a radioactive concentration of 100 Bq/kg.

      The radioactive isotope is also not mentioned… Cs-137?

      From Nesterenko:

      "I want to draw your attention on the research of Prof. Bandazhevsky. We worked with him. He came to the conclusion that 50 Bq/kg bodyweight in children, represent a threshold where pathologies appear in vital organs like kidneys, liver, heart and others."

  • WBC in this case refers to:

    Whole Body Counting… the measurement of radioactivity within the human body.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whole_body_counting

    ? –> The bigger question is what does 6,000 bq in the human body do to a person? (child!!!)

    I am not a medical professional, but I'm assuming it cannot be good.

    There was a linked article about a man in Fukushima City that had 20,000 bq.

    • Expected health effects for an adult assuming the cumulative total radiation exposure was all received within a weeks time.
      For children, the effects can be expected at half these dose levels.

      TOTAL EXPOSURE ONSET & DURATION OF INITIAL SYMPTOMS & DISPOSITION

      30 to 70 R From 6-12 hours: none to slight incidence of transient headache and nausea;
      vomiting in up to 5 percent of personnel in upper part of dose range. Mild
      lymphocyte depression within 24 hours. Full recovery expected. (Fetus damage
      possible from 50R and above.)

      70 to 150 R From 2-20 hours: transient mild nausea and vomiting in 5 to 30 percent of
      personnel. Potential for delayed traumatic and surgical wound healing,
      minimal clinical effect. Moderate drop in lymphocycte, platelet, and
      granulocyte counts. Increased susceptibility to opportunistic pathogens.
      Full recovery expected.

      150 to 300 R From 2 hours to three days: transient to moderate nausea and vomiting in
      20 to 70 percent; mild to moderate fatigability and weakness in 25 to 60
      percent of personnel. At 3 to 5 weeks: medical care required for 10 to 50%.
      At high end of range, death may occur to maximum 10%. Anticipated medical
      problems include infection, bleeding, and fever. Wounding or burns will
      geometrically increase morbidity and mortality.

      300 to 530 R From 2 hours to three days: transient to moderate nausea and vomiting in 50
      to 90 percent; mild to moderate fatigability in 50 to 90…

      • ; mild to moderate fatigability in 50 to 90 percent of personnel.
        At 2 to 5 weeks: medical care required for 10 to 80%. At low end of range,
        less than 10% deaths; at high end, death may occur for more than 50%.
        Anticipated medical problems include frequent diarrheal stools, anorexia,
        increased fluid loss, ulceration. Increased infection susceptibility during
        immunocompromised time-frame. Moderate to severe loss of lymphocytes.
        Hair loss after 14 days.

        530 to 830 R From 2 hours to two days: moderate to severe nausea and vomiting in 80 to
        100 percent of personnel; From 2 hours to six weeks: moderate to severe
        fatigability and weakness in 90 to 100 percent of personnel. At 10 days to
        5 weeks: medical care required for 50 to 100%. At low end of range, death
        may occur for more than 50% at six weeks. At high end, death may occur
        for 99% of personnel. Anticipated medical problems include developing
        pathogenic and opportunistic infections, bleeding, fever, loss of appetite,
        GI ulcerations, bloody diarrhea, severe fluid and electrolyte shifts, capillary
        leak, hypotension. Combined with any significant physical trauma, survival
        rates will approach zero.

        830 R Plus From 30 minutes to 2 days: severe nausea, vomiting, fatigability, weakness,
        dizziness, and disorientation; moderate to severe fluid imbalance and headache.
        Bone marrow total depletion within days. CNS symptoms are predominant at
        higher radiation…

    Will be interesting when we scan people in Tokyo and the United States.

    Where are the people who thought that irreversible organ failure in a child would be just "fine," and if they just smile, it will all go away? Is part of this country criminally insane and the rest just sheeps (or in this case, lambs) to the slaughter? Why aren't these people out in the streets screaming? This isn't human.
