The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

“A baby that has no head is a baby that has no head.”

There is now hope that official research priorities will change. There is a continually growing movement to free up the World Health Organisation from its present inability to do medical research in Chernobyl and Fukushima. From 1959 until now, the World Health Organisation has been hamstrung by its agreement with the IAEA. On May 12, 2011 history was quietly made when the new WHO Director-General Margaret Chan said “There is no safe low level of radiation.”

“A baby that has no head is a baby that has no head.” –   a different approach to the question of radiation and birth deformities,   How do you find out if low levels of  ionising radiation cause birth defects and genetic abnormalities?  by Noel Wauchope,  23/10/12

The usual approach is to look at causes – at radiation as a cause. Scientists measure radiation levels in an area, and study or predict health results.  Studies on small animal life in Chernobyl and Fukushima, have indicated genetic damage due to radiation.

Many reports have described birth defects linking them to radiation affected areas – Fallujah in Iraq, Chernobyl  2010 Paul Zimmerman  http://www.globalresearch.ca/uranium-weapons-low-level-radiation-and-deformed-babies/16726 ,  2009 Video and article  http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/nov/13/falluja-cancer-children-birth-defects

But, as the nuclear lobby loves to remind us  – link is not  a proof  And  the World Health Organisation has remained silent on these matters. Why? Since 1959, an agreement signed…

  1. Expert Medical Toxicology Texts, rarely have sections, examining individual Radionuclide toxicology. They especially fail, with radionuclide teratogenicity, and genotoxity.

    All radionuclides are extremely teraogenic, at very low dosage ranges. Ranges as low as millionths of a gram or less. Teratogenicity, from radionuclides, can occur from brief exposures, unlike teratogens like thalidomide.

    Thalidomide is most teratogenic, in the first and second trimester. It is teratogenic when 100 mg (thousanths of a gram not millionths).
    Twice daily for more than 2 weeks. Radioactive cobalt is teratogenic , if the fetus is exposed to 100 millionths of a gram, for more and a couple of days.

    Alpha emitters, like uranium and radium are not as potent of teratogens, as gamma emmiters. More insidious. They can be trapped in fetal tissue, and remain the duraion of preganacy. If the fetus has acquired one early in pregnancy, neurotubule defects are sure to occur.
    They too, are in a much higher risk category than any non-radioactive teratogens.

    There are relatively few non-radioactive-chemical gentoxins, compared to radionuclides. All radionuclides are gentoxic!
    There are nitrogen mustards, and the like that can covalently bond to DNA, in cell nuclei and damage it. Almost all non-radiioactive genotoxins, are man-made. There are not so many of them. Dioxin, used to make agent orange is another one. Thay are all acutely toxic.
