Can One Nuklear Reactor Contamine Half of the Earth ?

Susanne Gerber
The quantities of radiation released to date are unprecedented, say the Japanese government, and they are very sorry for having withheld important information.  They will also likely claim it “unprecedented” as people across the island nation and northern hemisphere are subjected to short and long term exposure to radioactive materials emitted from the power plants 3 reactors in full meltdown. It has been known for over 20 years that it would only take one nuclear reactor to contaminate over half of the planet.  The old criteria for measuring a nuclear accident, and acceptable levels of radiation exposure no longer apply.  There are many medical studies whose results lay in direct contrast to the statistics provided by international nuclear reports.  While there have been many other nuclear disasters, there has never been one at this scale.  There is rising concerns that fallout from testing during the 1950s may have weakened the immune systems of the youth, making them more susceptible to future biological effects of additional fallout from other disasters. In May 2011, the Japanese Government raised the upper limit of safe radiation expsure for children to 20 millisieverts per year, an exponential increase over the previous limit of 1 millisievert per year.  The Japanese Government has claimed a cumulative dose of 500 millisieverts of radiation per year increases the risk of cancer.  After the nuclear disaster at Chernobyl, it was found for a one year old child that only received between 10 and 20 mSv ran the risk of developing a fatal cancer. According to multiple reports include the UNSCEAR report, up to 80,000 children have been born with congenital deformations in the Chernobyl region, and up to 200,000 genetically damaged children worldwide.  The Chernobyl data is known to not be accurate, as medical workers were limited by the government as to how many death certificates they could file listing an effect of radiation as the cause of death.  Over the first three years after the initial accident authorities continued falsifying medical data, rendering much of the possible research impossible.  According to a WHO prognosis, in the Belarussian region of Gomel alone, more than 50,000 children will develop thyroid cancer during their lives. Questionable comparisons aside, there are some worrying correlations linking radiation and numerous health effects and death, even as far as the other side of the world.  Scientists and health officials for the last 20 years have debated the correlation between radioactivity in milk and mortality rates even in low radiation conditions that are beneath regulation ceilings.   The seasonal patterns of mortality in developed countries is fairly stable, so much so that the ods of a rise or fall of even 3 or 4 percent is one in one million.  Anomalies are investigated and tracked by experts and statisticians.  One of the noted anomalies was the death rate in the United States the summer of 1986.
