Dear colleagues,


In light of the sad news regarding Ted Rockwell posted on RadSafe Digest
Vol. 1253, Issue 1, I thought some of you may like to know about his
website at the link that follows: http://tedrockwell.typepad.com/energy/
. The quote below taken from the website is but one example of his
efforts to fight against radiation-phobia-related casualties such as the
more than 100,000 abortions following Chernobyl and the more than 1,000
preventable deaths (e.g., among severely-stressed elderly evacuated from
hospitals) so far related to Fukushima:


"The radiation levels in the business and living areas around Fukushima
are not particularly high. There are many areas of the world where
people live happily and healthily in natural radiation levels many times
higher. If radiation protection policy had been set as other protection
standards are set -- as high as safely tolerable --then radiation would
hardly be mentioned in connection with recovery efforts. In fact, the
lack of electricity to provide light and heat, run elevators, pump
gasoline for cars, and perform countless other functions was a more real
problem than radiation during the first weeks and months after the
tsunami struck. Yet radiation is still cited as the reason workers and
their families can't return to their homes and productive life." 


Best wishes,
