- ITALIAN ONCOLOGISTS BACK ‘YES’ AT THE NUCLEAR REFERENDUM (AGI NEWS):
(AGI) Chicago – Italian oncologists unite to back the anti-nuclear referendum. From the ASCO congress in Chicago, the world’s most important oncology summit, AIOM (Italian association of medical oncology) urges the people to vote ‘yes’ at the referendum to be held on 12 and 13 June. “Nuclear radiation is the most carcinogenic thing that exists – said AIOM president Carmelo Iacono – and it cannot be kept under control, as the Fukushima tragedy proved. Let’s drop the nuclear plants project and let’s start staking on alternative energy, which pollutes much less and which, unlike nuclear energy, does not pose a threat for health”. . .
There are no safe levels of radiation:

Dr. Helen Caldicott (Co-founder of Physicians for Social Responsibility):
You’ve bought the propaganda from the nuclear industry. They say it’s low-level radiation. That’s absolute rubbish. If you inhale a millionth of a gram of plutonium, the surrounding cells receive a very, very high dose. Most die within that area, because it’s an alpha emitter. The cells on the periphery remain viable. They mutate, and the regulatory genes are damaged. Years later, that person develops cancer. Now, that’s true for radioactive iodine, that goes to the thyroid; cesium-137, that goes to the brain and muscles; strontium-90 goes to bone, causing bone cancer and leukemia. It’s imperative … that you understand internal emitters and radiation, and it’s not low level to the cells that are exposed. Radiobiology is imperative to understand these days.”
