Effects of Nuclear Weapons Test Era “Unknown”

I am sick of nuclear authorities claiming the deposition from Fuk is “less than” deposition from nuclear weapons tests. I want to rip that to bits. Implications of these statements are meant to convey harmlessness of Fuk, from their perspective. but 1. All exposures add up 2. The effects of weapons fallout were and remain devastating 3. authorities today are blind to the weapons test deception 4. The effects of the weapons tests are unknown to the experts even in the US. 5. The weapons test fallout dosed and primed the world population 6. Affected populations exist world wide and are denied by authorities. 7. The deception of the Clinton “Openness” in this regard culminated in the funding of the DOE to investigate the impacts, which they turned into an advocacy of low dose radiation. etc etc. In 1998 the CDC undertook a study into effects of weapons fallout Here: http://www.cdc.gov/nceh/radiation/fallout/ Anyone who listens to authorities claiming any fallout from Fuk is harmless because it is less than weapons fallout has to realize that the weapons fallout was not and is not safe and that Fuk adds to it. And that the cumulative dose is the dose that counts.

Feasibility Study of Weapons Test Fallout

Report on the Health Consequences to the American Population from Nuclear Weapons Tests Conducted by the United States and Other Nations

In 1998, the Senate Appropriations Committee asked the Department of Health and Human Services to conduct an initial assessment of the feasibility and public health implications of a study concerning the health consequences to the American population of radioactive fallout from nuclear weapons testing. This request resulted in a collaborative effort by staff at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Cancer Institute to make crude estimates of doses and health risks from exposure to radioactive fallout from nuclear weapons tests conducted from 1951 through 1962 at the Nevada Test Site and other sites throughout the world.

In 2002, HHS transmitted to the Senate Appropriations Committee a progress report and an extensive two-volume Feasibility Study providing details on the scientific methods and conclusions of this feasibility study. The draft Feasibility Study was also sent to the National Academy of Sciences’ Committee on Assessment of CDC Radiation Studies. A report from that committee issued in February 2003 was peer reviewed by the National Academy of Sciences/National Research Council (NAS/NRC) Committee to Review the CDC-NCI Feasibility Study of the Health Consequences from Nuclear Weapons Tests (NAS/NRC 2003). The recommendations and comments of the NAS/NRC committee were carefully considered. This final report, issued in April 2005, was prepared in consideration of those recommendations. CDC reviewed and addressed the comments received on the draft report, and on January 25, 2006, the Department of Health and Human Services transmitted to Congress the final “Report on the Feasibility of a Study of the Health Consequences to the American Population from Nuclear Weapons Tests Conducted by the United States and Other Nations.”

Final Report

ONE WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT GIVEN THE VAST EXPENSE IN DOLLARS AND HUMAN RESOURCES, THE USA WOULD BE ABLE TO CONSULT DETAILED INDIVIDUAL DOSES RECIEVED FOR EVERY MAN WOMAN AND CHILD TARGETED BY US BOMB FALLOUT. AFTER ALL, THEY TOOK OUR BONES.

HOWEVER, THE BEST THEY CAN DO IS COME UP WITH CALCULATED ESTIMATES, NOT ACTUAL INDIVIDUAL DOSES.

FURTHER, THOSE WHO DID SUFFER, SUFFER STILL AND WHO SUFFERED LOSS REMAIN UNRECOGNIZED BY NUCLEAR AUTHORITIES, WHO MAINTAIN THAT NO ONE SUFFERED DUE TO THE FALLOUT FROM NULCEAR WEAPONS TESTS.

And this assertion on the part of nuclear authorities is total and utter crap, and they know it.

If Japanese nuclear authorities and nuclear authorities want to communicate with any credibility what so ever, they need to com clean for once.

“Less than nuclear weapon fallout” simply means that there will be more to add to the devastation of the past. Such statements merely reveal pig ignorance, as usual, on the part of nuclear authorities.

    Thanks for posting this great article!

    The “industry” is out for their own profit and everything else (like public SAFETY) is secondary to that goal!
