Fukushima Radiation Has Already Killed 14,000 Americans

Quote:
A new study published in the peer-reviewed journal International Journal of Health Services alleges that 14,000 people have already died in the United States due to Fukushima.

Specifically, the authors of the study claim:


An estimated 14,000 excess deaths in the United States are linked to the radioactive fallout from the disaster at the Fukushima nuclear reactors in Japan, according to a major new article in the December 2011 edition of the International Journal of Health Services. This is the first peer-reviewed study published in a medical journal documenting the health hazards of Fukushima.

[The authors] note that their estimate of 14,000 excess U.S. deaths in the 14 weeks after the Fukushima meltdowns is comparable to the 16,500 excess deaths in the 17 weeks after the Chernobyl meltdown in 1986. The rise in reported deaths after Fukushima was largest among U.S. infants under age one. The 2010-2011 increase for infant deaths in the spring was 1.8 percent, compared to a decrease of 8.37 percent in the preceding 14 weeks.

The authors seem – at first glance – to have pretty solid credentials. Janette Sherman, M.D. 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. She served on the EPA’s advisory board for 6 years, and has been an advisor to the National Cancer Institute on breast cancer. Dr. Sherman specializes in internal medicine and toxicology with an emphasis on chemicals and nuclear radiation.

Joseph J. Mangano is a public health administrator and researcher who has studied the connection between low-dose radiation exposure and subsequent risk of diseases such as cancer and damage to newborns. He has published numerous articles and letters in medical and other journals in addition to books, including Low Level Radiation and Immune System Disorders: An Atomic Era Legacy.

Sherman also claims that a study in British Columbia of infants under 1 year of age allegedly corroborates the increased deaths due to Fukushima:

My prayers go to the families.

We really need the entire truth on this, what are your thoughts?

My thoughts are that we are not strong enough technologically to contain the dangers of nuclear power.

Wouldn't surprise me, if the whole world's affected by these catastrophes.

Pretty much every lifeform reacts to radiation.

Sure there is nothing to contain the danger of nuclear power, except when the Chernobyl incident happen, they quickly build a cap to isolate the reactor radiations and radioactive particules in the atmosphere. They evacuated the population in this area. Please note that it was only 1 reactor involved in this incident.

In the Fukushima incident, 3 reactors meltdown were involved from the 6 reactors, and nothing was build to protect propagation of radioactive particles in the atmosphere.

Well, some studies of safety and location of these reactors were ignored.

Yep, no place to hide from the radioactive particules http://www.enviroreporter.com/2012/0...espread/all/1/
