Radiation research in children teeth in Japan

 

Prof. Chihiro Ichihara from Aichi Medical University, is an independent man.

He informed the audience about the children teeth project for measuring Strontium 90, with no government support, looking for funding.

Prof. Chihiro Ichihara collects children teeth and lets them measure for Strontium 90. He plans to build an own independent lab for parents.

Similar project was done until the1980s in the U.S. after the bomb tests. It was then supervised by Jay Gould. (STRONTIUM-90 IN BABY TEETH AS A FACTOR IN EARLY CHILDHOOD CANCER http://www.radiation.org/reading/ijhs/ijhs_9_2000.html)

To measure Sr90 is very difficult, because it emits only beta radiation. It causes bone marrow depression, destroys the stem cells and immune system, casuses bone cancer / sarcoma.

His project deserves more attention, because it is VITAL.

Kudos to Prof. Ichihara, wo worked at the research reactor in Kyoto: “He is a physicist specialising in Neutron transport experiments and their calculation as well as in gamma-ray spectrum measurement.

Currently, he teaches as a Visiting Professor at Aichi Medical University. He is a member of the Steering Committee of PDTN. Previously, Prof. Chihiro Ichihara was an Associate Professor at the Research Reactor Institute of Kyoto University.”
