Summary of posting:

Dr. Sakamoto, a medical doctor (MD) and a PhD has been studying the effects
of radiation experimentally since 1975 and medically since 1985. He started
his career in Radiology in 1964. Based on what he has learned he made the
following statement early in his presentation:

Based on my experience in treating many patients the radiation level near
Fukushima is not a cancer risk.

(Emphasis in the original.)

Though a mutual friend, Dr. Sakamoto has asked that his presentation slides
be posted here
df>  so that more people can understand the basis on which he has made that
important assertion.

Just in case you do not take the time to click on the presentation link,
here are the conclusions that Dr. Sakamoto wanted his audience to take out
of the presentation:


*	Much information is known about the effects of low dose and low
levels of radiation on living organisms, especially mice and people
*	Low doses of radiation stimulate:

*	immunity to cancer
*	biological defenses against DNA damage

*	LDR (Low Dose Radiation) can be used to cure / prevent cancer
*	The dose or dose rate at which radiation starts to become harmful is
also known
*	There is no basis to fear low-level radiation

I think those are reassuring and useful thoughts with which to leave you and
the residents of the Fukushima prefecture. Despite everything that serious
researchers like Dr. Sakamoto have learned about the health effects of low
level radiation those residents are still being told by fear mongers like
Arnie Gundersen and Helen Caldicott that they should live in fear or that
they will never be able to return to their homes.
