There is no safe level of contamination. There are leaks in existing plants. Fukushima will cause major health problems in the future. Testicular cancers, sterility, deformed babies. helencaldicott.com  (Apr 13, 2011 | post #2)

It gives people something to talk about at home. The Prez hasn't done much else worth talking about. That and placing religion in the home.  (Apr 13, 2011 | post #1)

High levels of exposure can cause acute radiation sickness, a syndrome first recognized by the medical profession after Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It can have terrible effects. In two weeks, victims' hair begins to drop out. They develop hemorrhaging under the skin, severe nausea and diarrhea and may eventually die from bleeding or infection. If a meltdown occurred at the plant, a large number of people could be exposed to high doses of radiation in this region, one of the most heavily populated in Japan. (After the March 11 earthquake, the Japanese government evacuated people living within a 20-kilometer radius to mitigate the possibility.) Men exposed to such a dose would be rendered sterile, women would stop menstruating, and spontaneous abortions would likely occur. Babies could be born with microcephaly, with tiny heads and mental disabilities. Many people would develop acute shortness of breath from lung damage. In five years, there would be an epidemic of leukemia, and in 15 years, solid cancers would start appearing in many organs: lung, breast, thyroid, brain and bone.

Dr. Helen Caldicott, Japan and you

I was a resident of Oroville, CA for many years. I am in Clearlake, CA now, having been in Ukiah for 20 years. I got into an interested Anti-Nuke group in 1993. And now we have Fukushima. If interested in the subject, I have started conversing with Dr. Caldicott and have tried to be faithful to her words and feelings on Nuclear proliferation. I have started a topic here:http://www.go dlikeproductions.c om/forum1/message1 417358/pg1 I owe this to Oroville. It is a worthy town. Hello to the Dunnams and racoons.
