Kiyohiko Sakamoto, Chairman, Board of Directors Tohoku Radiological Science Center, Professor Emeritus, Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan explains the low level of radiation in Japan from the Fukushima accident and the implications for recovery.
James Muckerheide - Low-dose radiation is documented to be beneficial for human health but, for political reasons, radiation is assumed to be harmful at any dose. Radiation-protection scientists, and others, who cover up the data that contradict present policy should be investigated for misconduct.
James Conca - A very big report came out last month with very little fanfare. It concluded what we in nuclear science have been saying for decades – radiation doses less than about 10 rem (0.1 Sv) are no big deal. The linear no-threshold dose hypothesis (LNT) does not apply to doses less than 10 rem (0.1 Sv), which is the region encompassing background levels around the world, and is the region of most importance to nuclear energy, most medical procedures and most areas affected by accidents like Fukushima.
Dr. Kiyohiko Sakamoto is a leading researcher in Japan for benefits of low-dose radiation in nuclear medicine. This PowerPoint Presentation discusses the effects of low-level radiation from the tsunami induced accident at Fukushima. Significant damage and deaths was caused by the historic tsunami and earthquake and the human stress from long evacuation from home and business.
