Your method to confuse RADSAFE with repeating again and again dozens of mails is well known, but it is annoying - which is obviously what it should be according to your tactics.
You base your comment on some "anticipated" deaths, which have not yet occurred and will most probably never occur, in analogue to Chernobyl. This is not science and not worth "one of the best epidemiologists and the most knowledgable person on radioecology, radioactivity, and nuclear accidents in the world". You present your own personal speculations as facts. This is highly unethical, respecially when it is associated with money to be earned.
According to good practice I removed all your kB of repeated mails to make mine reasable.

I am afraid that is how science works.
You compare like with like.
So I compare Chernobyl with Fukushima.
Chronsic internal fission product exposures.
So do many others.
What ICRP does (and the radsafers or health physics people do) is compare Fukushima with the huge acute gamma external exposure at Hiroshima.
That is not science. It is nonsense.
