>From the article: "The latest study by the NIRS researchers evaluated
the lifetime doses of all 1,080 subjects from their hourly dose measurements by using conditions that maximized them."

In other words, substituted progressively more and more unrealistic assumptions for realistic assumptions, until they got results they wanted.

This nuclear news posting misstates what is actually contained in this article that asserts that children received some radiation to their thyroid glands as opposed to government claims that they received zero radiation - it is typical of the way that news stories are spun and hyped by Christina MacPherson in Australia on her widely read nuclear-news Word Press blog and the e-mails sent from that site to presumably thousands of people around the world
