– Fukushima medical uni “It’s important to collect medical data before outbreak to come in 4~5 years” (Fukushima Diary, Sep 8, 2012):
Fukushima local government is keeping people within the prefecture as if Fukushima accident put no impact.
However, Fukushima medical university is actually aware of the health risk related to Fukushima accident, but thinks it’s important to collect medical data before outbreak.
Japan Radiation Res. Soc. held the meeting in Tohoku university from 9/6 to 9/8/2012. Prof. Ohtsu from Fukushima medical university commented on the meeting like this below,
Outbreak of Fukushima related symptoms will take 4~5 years to occur. It’s important to collect data about health condition before outbreak.
He also commented
We shouldn’t force the opinion to people that low dose exposure is safe, but also we shouldn’t inspire fear excessively. Mental, and physical supports are required from variety of fields.
Mr. Chino from Japan Atomic Energy Agency was one of the developing members of SPEEDI. He also criticized that NISA and Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology didn’t publish SPEEDI to evacuate people. They explain it was because they couldn’t obtain the accurate data of reactors. He left the comment about their explanation like this below,
They conduct measures for natural disaster based on even imperfect prediction, but it’s not understandable why they only looked for the perfect prediction to ignore SPEEDI data when it comes to nuclear disaster.
