… and plutonium is the deadliest substance on the planet:
PDF: The Human Plutonium Injection Experiment (FAS – Los Alamos Science, Number 23, 1995):
Here the maximum permissable body burden is 0,65 micrograms!
Dr. Helen Caldicott (Co-founder of Physicians for Social Responsibility):
- The Propaganda From The Government And The Nuclear Industry About Low-Level Radiation Is Absolute Rubbish:
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.”
- Gov’t Experts: It was Reactor 2 explosion that released plutonium from Fukushima plant; Highest levels found over 20 km away — ABC Radio: Professor on TV said “32 grams of plutonium could be ingested with food without danger of death” (AUDIO) (ENENews, Feb 9, 2014):
IRSN (France) — Initial analyses of the accident and its consequences (pdf): [E]stimates of the radioactivity released for [plutonium and other transuranium elements] remain rough due to the lack of a sufficient body of measurements and information on the actual condition of the damaged reactors. [...] Their presence in the environment due to the accident has not been easy to detect [...] neptunium-239 [...] in the village of Iitate proves without doubt that transuranium radionuclides were released by the Fukushima accident. This is also confirmed by the interpretation of certain results of plutonium measurements taken in the soils northwest of the Fukushima Dai-ichi site [...] all these values were obtained at points located within the main fallout zone extending to the northwest makes it possible to attribute this plutonium to releases from reactor 2 after its containment was damaged by the hydrogen explosion on March 15 […] The highest values for 238Pu were measured more than 20 km from the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant, at points 3 and 4 northwest of Namie and south of Iitate.
ABC (Australia), Jan. 29, 2014 (at 16:00 in): A TV appearance by Professor Narabayashia member of the Nuclear Safety Commission did nothing to help dispel our doubts either. He said that up to 32 grams of plutonium could be ingested with food without danger of death. If breathed plutonium was only deadly from 10 mg upwards. Independent scientists assume that even 1/1,000,000 of a gram can trigger lung cancer.
