I'm trying to send this again. It worked with a friend just now.

I checked Busby's reference to YI Bandazhevsky as the source of his  
information on alleged Cs-137 induced cardiomyopathy in children.  
There seems to be one reference - at least that I could find with  
Google Scholar - in the SWISS MED WKLY 2004;134:725–729, entitled,  
"Relationship between Caesium (137Cs) load, cardiovascular symptoms,  
and source of food in “Chernobyl” children – preliminary  
observations after intake of oral apple pectin". The full paper is  
attached here. Rather skimpy evidence. Perhaps Dr. Busby will let us  
know whether a more serious study has been published.
