Mark, this one might be worth looking into and explaining, because the
e-mails are supposedly to/from Nobel Laureate and former Energy
Secretary Dr Steven Chu. I suspect what he was doing was trying to
quantify exposure to Iodine-131 so that it would be a known fact that
could be used to refute future claims of I-131 caused thyroid cancer.
Anyone else want to comment. Nuclear-News and Noel Wauchope, aka
Christina MacPherson rarely actually provides the initial reports on
her site, just the commentary. Her collaborator, Sean McGee
supposedly from Ireland (he told me he was in UK and later that he was
moving to Iceland) is supposed to be a Chris Busby event in Latvia

> [Sent to John Holdren, senior adviser to Pres. Obama on science & technology, Secretary of Energy Steven Chu, DOE/NRC officials, and others who were redacted] I would like to raise another issue which now merits expeditious, near term action. There is a short time window… during which it will remain possible to… measure any I-131 that members of the public may have ingested… Collecting this data… would be very valuable… UCB faculty [is in] general agreement that prompt action should be taken… Many cases of thyroid cancer, and other health problems, may end up being attributed to exposures from the Fukushima accident… on the U.S.
