Whitewashing of Fukushima meltdown by United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation

 

 

Note the careful choice of words – no adverse effects ”have been documented‘ ‘‘that could be directly attributed‘…….

Fukushima radiation did not damage health of local people, UN says, Guardian,  Justin McCurry in Tokyo, Wed 10 Mar 2021 

‘No adverse health effects’ detected despite three nuclear reactors being destroyed by an earthquake and tsunami in 2011   
Radiation caused by the nuclear meltdown in Fukushima a decade ago has not damaged the health of local people, according to a UN report.Gillian Hirth, chairwoman of the UN’s scientific committee on the effects of atomic radiation (Unscear), said that “no adverse health effects among Fukushima residents have been documented that could be directly attributed to radiation exposure from the accident” in March 2011…….

Concern over the potential health effects of the accident rose after reports of a high incidence of thyroid cancer in children living in Fukushima prefecture at the time of the disaster.

Unscear and other experts have attributed the higher rates to the use of highly sensitive ultrasound equipment and the large number of children who have been examined……..

But in a report released to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the triple disaster, Greenpeace Japan warned that large areas near the plant where evacuation orders have been lifted in recent years had still not been properly decontaminated, leaving returning residents exposed to potentially harmful levels of radiation for decades.
