Fukushima: young women at 5 times greater cancer risk than general population
by Christina MacPherson

Nuclear Expert: Fukushima risk underestimated ENE News, — 5% of young
girls will get cancer living in 20 milliSv/y for 5 years — “Actually
worse than that” — Hot particles NOT included & only counts cancers,
not other effects  : Cancer Risk To Young Children Near Fukushima
Daiichi Underestimated Source: Fairewinds Associates, Inc Author:
Arnie Gundersen   Transcript Excerpts That gets me to the issue of
BIER, Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation. [...]

Now in Japan, the Japanese government is allowing people to go back
into these radiation zones, when the radiation exposure is 2 rem. What
that means is that they are willing to say that your chances of
getting cancer are 1 in 500 if you go back into these areas that are
presently off limits, and the exposure levels are 2 rem or 20
milisieverts in a year.

But it is worse than that. The number that we are using in the BIER
Report is for the entire population, old people and young. And old
people are going to die of something else before a cancer gets to
them, whereas young people have rapidly dividing cells and they live a
longer time, so they are more likely to get cancer. So if you go into
the BIER Report and you look at Table 12-D, you will see that young
women have a 5 times that number chance of getting cancer than the
population as a whole. So young girls in the Fukushima Prefecture are
going to get 5 times the exposure they would get from 2 rem. That
means that about one in 100 young girls is going to get cancer as a
result of the exposure in Fukushima Prefecture. And that is for every
year they are in that radiation zone [at 20 milliSv/y]. If you are in
there for 5 years, it is 5 out of 100 young girls will get cancer.

Now the BIER Report only addresses cancer, and of course, there are
other effects of radiation that are not included in BIER, so it is
actually worse than that.

Two more items: The first is that the BIER Report does not address hot
particles. Now we have been over that extensively on the site, and you
will see that imbibing it (a kid gets radioactive cesium on their
hands and they swallow it, or breathing it in), is not included in the
BIER Report.

And the last piece brings us over to Ian Goddard’s video, and that is
this assumption by the Japanese and International Atomic Energy
Agency, that at some point, this radiation is really so hard to
measure that it does not count anymore. Well, the data indicates that
just the opposite is happening……
