Title: Nuclear radiation impact being ignored?
Source: DNA
Author: Dilnaz Boga
Date: Mar 24, 2013

[…] the ‘Interim Report on Tarapur’ has found indicators which show radiation-related problem among employees of Tarapur Atomic Power Station (TAPS) and villages close to it. […]

Cancer, goitre, infertility, mental retardation common […]

Goitre cases have also been found in the surrounding villages, local physicians corroborated in the report. […]

Cases of mental retardation, including Down’s Syndrome, autoimmune arthritis, particularly rheumatoid arthritis, were found in villagers along with high instances of cataract and myopia at a young age. […]

Full report here

Dr V Pugazhenthi from Tamil Nadu, renowned for studies on the health impact of radiation around the Kalpakkam nuclear site

  • “I found 100 cases of cancer in 2010 among TAPS employees. Local physicians said that incidents of cancer have been on the rise in the area in the last few years, particularly hepatoma, ovarian cancer, bone cancer, breast cancer and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. But there has been no intervention for the victims.”
  • “A casual walk through the villages helped me identify 15-20 Goitre cases. TAPS doctors had carried a survey on thyroid problems by the medical superintendent denied it.”
  • “Spontaneous abortions, still births, hormonal imbalances in women in the form of excessive bleeding, decreased birth weight and birth defects on the rise.”

RK Gupta, who worked for Bhabha Atomic Research Centre for over 30 years in the fuel reprocessing division in the plutonium plant

“Exposures are a regular affair. Workers have died of skin diseases and cancer. Despite this, international rules for workers are not fully implemented. There is a silence about this as people compromise because of their economic condition. Even contaminated tools that are stolen and scarp metal slow poison people. Just like people get poisoned from fish exposed to radiation very far from the site.”

India a market for nuclear power suppliers… if the price is right

New Delhi (UPI) Mar 19, 2013

“I want to argue with them why i should pay the bribe to you but i couldn’t dare to argue with police because i was single and there were 4 other policemen staring at me.” The myth of an official’s capability to deny or delay services rules the roost in government offices. .. http://www.ipaidabribe.com/

….Sazawal said the United States could play a major role in the development of nuclear power in India….

…But Geoffrey Pyatt, principal deputy assistant secretary of state for South and Central Asian Affairs, speaking at a nuclear expert controls seminar last November, said India’s nuclear liability law “is not in line with the international nuclear liability principles reflected in the Convention on Supplementary Compensation for Nuclear Damage.”…..
