Continuing sickness in children from irradiated food in Belarus

Children Radiation Maps, Blog by Jan Hemmer April 14, 2012 by Mikkai“………“for 15 years new children were born who, thanks to God, did not experience the first radioactive shock. For 15 years, they have eaten contaminated food. Children receive the highest doses, because the dose coefficients, in a 3 year old child, are 5 times higher than in adults. Contaminate food spreads like locusts In the whole Republic. It is not surprising to find in Minsk, children with a dose load of 700-900 Bq/kg.

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. I want to say that today the health of children is such that if we do not take urgent measures, I cannot see good prospects for our children.”

Nesterenko: “We measure the whole population, then we isolate the critical group. We isolate the 10-15 most contaminated individuals. Generally 8 are children, also tractor drivers and forest workers, and sometimes retired persons who gather great quantities of berries and mushroom in forests. This is what our measurements show. We have 110.000 results. We always thought that children with a high metabolism should not concentrate much. But, I repeat, we find the highest concentrations in the children.”

“when we try to eliminate the high sickness rate by an increased number of clinics – we’ll never succeed. Unfortunately, we are losing time for study because to do something it is necessary to understand the reasons and consequences of the sickness rather than regularly declare slogans or launch some campaigns” http://spring96.org/en/news/13547…..

Irradiated Fukushima or Chernobyl Soil with 555,000 Becquerel per m² (15 Curie per km²) and more irradiates the people living there with additional 50 to 60 milli Sievert per year (annual dose)! NOT included: Irradiation by food (Source number One).

The ICRP lowered the standard dose for citizens in 1991 from 5 mSv/annual to 1 mSv/annual. For workers of the nuclear industry they lowered it from 50 mSv/annual to 20 mSv/annual. In 2011 the japanese government increased it by 2000 PERCENT into: 20 mSv/annual. AN INFANT or UNBORN is “allowed” to get as much radiation per YEAR as a worker in a nuclear power plant! This is “only” external radiation……  http://hps.org/documents/publicdose03.pdf /http://tekknorg.wordpress.com/2012/02/17/japanese-infants-as-much-radiation-as-nuclear-power-plant-employees/…….

 

Today contaminated soil functions as the main source, which delivers various components of radionuclides into the biosphere. At at distance of 150 – 200 km to Chernobyl: Gomel in Belarus: 2,271 kBq/m² (61 Curie per km²) and Mogilev (146 Curie per km²) can be found. In Bragin (Gomel) Cs-137 contamination is 174 kBq per m² up to 2,523 kBq per m². Radionuclides are distributed into forest photosynthesis: this is the growth line for Cs-137: wood < branches < needles < forest litter. For the living soil cover the line is as follows: herbaceous plants < lichens < mosses. The maximum is in the root system and ground vegetative part of plants, and considerably lower in generating organs. Accumulation degree for Sr-90 in meadow plants is twice as large as compared to Cs-137. The permissible levels for mushrooms is 7,4 kBq per m² for mushrooms. Terretories are called clean if contamination density is lower than 37 kBq per m². For berries of the red worthle berries family varies from 37 to 185 kBq per m². Migration processes of marketable animals and birds cause high specific activity of game registered even on relatively clean terretories.

The presence of radioactive isotopes in practically all components of the natural and natural-techno-genic ecosystems with density much higher than before explains their involvement in the geo-chemical and biological cycles of migration. This stuation causes different ways of external and internal irradiation of the population and jeopardizes people’s health.

We don’t get more data today, it is covered up by the state. So we go back into the 90ies: Thyroid illnesses morbidity of the children of Gomel area in 1994 (indices per 100,000 children: Total in Belarus 1086,20 – Total in Gomel area: 3594,30 – Contaminated area (> 555 kBq per m² / > 15 Curie per km²): 16159,70. Thyroid cancer morbidity of the children of Gomel area in 1994 (i.p. 100,000 children): Total in Belarus: 3,20 – Total in Gomel area: 12,00 – Contaminated area (> 555 kBq per m² / > 15 Curie per km²): 77,50. Tumour morbidity of the children in Gomel area in 1994 (i.p. 100,000 chidren): Total in Belarus: 101,10 – Total in Gomel area: 154,90 – Contaminated area (> 555 kBq per m² / > 15 Curie per km²): 245,40. Malignant tumour morbidity of the Children of Gomel area in 1994: Total in Belarus: 13,80 – Total in Gomel area: 27,10 – Contaminated area (> 555 kBq per m² / > 15 Curie per km²): 103,30.

BELRAD (THE INSTITUTE OF RADIATION, BELARUS)
“The Institute of Radiation Safety in Belarus is known as BELRAD (or Institute
BELRAD). The Institute was founded by the eminent nuclear physicist Dr Vasily
Nesterenko in 1990 and acts as an independent non state organization. The
Institute conducts scientific research and development projects to measure the
radiation in food and humans, along with measurements of contamination in soil
The goal of the Institute BELRAD is the radiation monitoring of the inhabitants of
Chernobyl zone and their food. The Institute also develops guidelines on
radiation safety for the protection of the population who live in the contaminated
zones. BELRAD also conducts ongoing scientific research.
FROM http://www.chernobyl-international.com/Libraries/Documents/Chernobyl25_-_Impact_of_Chernobyl_-_Facts_Figures.sflb.ashx
Main activities:
Radiation monitoring of the Chernobyl zones
The creation local networks for controlling and limiting the distribution of
contaminated food
Educating teachers and schools on the dangers of consuming irradiated food
Radiation monitoring of food. There are now 83 local networks in operation
and these networks or centres assist in monitoring food. The BELRAD databank
includes over 320,000 results relating to their radiation control and monitoring of
food in the worst affected regions of Belarus.”

Speak out the truth, do the self-evident!

In the name of the Children.
