In your paper you say "We have recently heard that children in the Fukushima contamination area have been 
suffering heart attacks."  That is a fairly extraordinary statement, and it deserves a reference, if only to hospital admission records or death certificates.  A good epidemiologist would make some effort to show that there have been more heart attacks, in children or in the general population,  since Fukushima than there were before, but I see no evidence of that.

In this case, I'm not sure self-publication counts.  I'm trying to give you the benefit of the doubt here, but it's getting harder and harder to take your work seriously.

The paper which this is based upon is here:


It follows work carried out by Bandashevsky in Belarus after Chernobyl.

Dr. Busby's latest video is currently making the rounds on the anti-nuke and conspiracy theory websites, and can be seen here:


I know there is some evidence that radiation exposure may be a risk factor for heart disease, but this takes it to a level I haven't seen before.

Am I stirring the pot?  Perhaps, a bit, but I'm also curious to hear some reasoned analysis of the issues, with references where possible.

Thanks in advance.
