internal radiation had been measured with whole body counter and the report
said that the figures were successfully decreased, though the most important health
improvement was not reflected by it.Please see http://savekidsjapan.blogspot.jp/2013/01/blog-post_8310.html
probably know, in Minimisoma city, which is outside of evacuation zone, Dr.
Masaharu Tsubokura from Tokyo University Medical Science Institute, measured
internal exposure using WBC and submitted the thesis to JAMA in August 2012
I met Dr.
Tsubokura in person at a radiation seminar held in Okinawa and directly asked
him whether he had read paper by Dr. Bandazhevsky.His answer was, “Yes, I have.As a matter of fact, I feel troubled.Every food should be measured before the
local residents would eat, but we do not have enough equipment.”
Febrary 2012, Dr. Masaharu Tsubokura mentioned about Dr. Bandazhevsky’s study in his own blog, http://medg.jp/mt/2012/02/vol410wbc.html.In
here, he stated that long-time follow-up will be needed including
electrocardiogram test for residents since there is a report by Bandazhevsky
that says 10Bq/kgー20Bq/kg
cesium concentration in body causes heart malfunction.
to the JAMA report by Dr. Tsubokura in August 2012, there were even people with
more than 50Bq/kg and many with 10Bq/kgー20Bq/kg among adults and children.This figure is of grave concern itself in the
light of Dr. Bandazhevsky’s study.However, strangely, the conclusion of Dr.
Tsubokura’s study was the residents’ exposure level was low, with all the subjects’ exposure less than 1mSV with only one exception of 1.07mSV
effective committed dose.
quite strangely, an internet site was made in May 2012, saying that
Bandazhevsky was denied by Dr. Tsubokura quite harshly
was stated by Mr. Makoto Omori(See http://savekidsjapan.blogspot.jp/2013/01/medias-sins.html),
the chief of broadcast section at TV You Fukushima.What Mr. Omori was saying was quite contrary
to the saying I heard from Dr. Tsubokura directly.
knows whether this cesium concentration in body came from initial exposure or
food intake afterwards, but in any case, it would be a act of murder not to
relocate residents making them breath contaminated air and consume contaminated
As for the WBC study, Professor Masahiro Kami, Tokyo University
Medical Science Institute, is in charge.Amazingly, the purpose of the study says;
purpose of this study is to conduct medical checkup and medical consultations
to resolve anxiety of the residents in costal line area in Fukushima greatly damaged by the nuclear disaster and to study the effects of
nuclear disaster on human bodies including low-level radiation effects.”
In this area
at risk, Professor Kami himself is conducting WBC study including local
children and pregnant women with his subordinate doctor Masahiro Tsubokura.This is nothing but a recurrence of Unit 731
evil human experiment with prolonged time span.
