Fukushima Health Effects in North America?

98 views 19 hours ago
Critique of two studies claiming 14,000 deaths and disease in North American caused by the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan.

Letter by Yuri Hiranuma to the journal that published the congenital-hypothyroidism study : http://fukushimavoice-eng2....

The two studies critiqued

Mangano J, Sherman J, Busby C. (2013). Changes in confirmed plus borderline cases of congenital hypothyroidism in California as a function of environmental fallout from the Fukushima nuclear meltdown. Open Journal of Pediatrics. 3(4). http://file.scirp.org/Html/...

Mangano J, Sherman J. (2011). An unexpected mortality increase in the United States follows arrival of the radioactive plume from Fukushima: is there a correlation? Int J Health Serv, 42(1): 47-64.

Radiation Risk Research Play

My Fukushima Unit 3 explanatory model Play

The explosion of Unit 3 was significantly different than that of Unit 1. Only the explosion of Unit 3 had vertical magnitude and a mushroom cloud. Here I outline the steam-explosion model, which is isomorphic to the explosion of Unit 3, mapping directly onto its physical phenomena.

Thorium, Safer Nuclear Energy Play

I've not studied thorium enough to be able to claim an informed opinion, but a number of credible experts believe it's a safer nuclear fuel than uranium, and I understand the potential for catastrophic meltdowns is not present as it is with urianium-based nuclear energy. However, thorium does not produce plutonium as a byproduct, and plutonium is needed by the military to produce nuclear weapons. Thorium advocates contend that is a big reason nuclear energy was steered by governments to uranium as the energy substrate.

U.S. Radioactive Rain is Natural Radon Washout Play

Youtube is flooded with videos that falsely attribute radioactive rains in North America to Fukushima fallout. But in every case where the user tests their rain sample over time, a rapid decay to normal within a day or a few days at most is reported. That is the 'acid-test' for radon, which is normally washed out with rains. In contrast, nuclear fallout in rain would remain hot for years.
