Transcript Summary

  *   Some things are interesting here and worth looking into
  *   But complete? Science is never complete
  *   It remains to be seen
  *   There are a lot of things that we don't know
  *   The radiation did come over from Fukushima to the Pacific northwest... That is certain, a scientific fact
  *   Is there a direct link between infant mortality? I'm not sure science can answer that
  *   I don't see convincing argument that it's directly connected to Fukushima [likely because study authors do not argue that it is directly connected]
  *   Scientifically it's interesting... but do we have the money to do a long-term study?
