How can Japan be so irresponsible to expose the world to these risks? Japan should’ve never been considered for the Olympics

what is cps per kg what does that mean? please
Becky Copeland
54:48
We are also recording the presentation for later sharing.
Nikki
54:52
it was counts per second - they different measures, CPS is about specific radioactivity, micro-sieverts is about the does to biological organisms
patriciareyes
55:02
with this pandemic, how much are the nuclear power plants around the world at risk? If no workers overseeing then are operation being managed properly?
Conrad
55:19
glad you are recording! for later listening!!
Nikki
55:56
Nuclear sites are very vulnerable if significant part of workforce taken out especially when some of the people have highly specialised knowledge that takes years of them working there to acquire!
Libbe HaLevy

Patricia Reyes, that’s what’s covered on this week’s Nuclear Hotseat in interviews w/Paul Gunter of Beyond Nuclear, as well as info from the NRC conference call. NuclearHotseat.com, episode #457.

Wow!

Why is this not in the news? Journalist should be reporting this on the news and making people aware.
Camlinh To
01:01:57
How much exposure (duration) of this radioactive material is considered fatal for the average human? I’m just wondering how much caution should have been given to the athletes and audience members but it seems like the locals’ concerns were suppressed or was this is all downplayed for the Olympics? Sorry if this was answered earlier. Similar concerns as some people above ^^

calculate by hazardous life for cesium of 300-600 years for cesium with half life of about 30 years how long the radioactivity theoretically should persist

From the simplyinfo.org Annual Report 2020 esp re thyroid cancer:
Conrad
01:20:27
HealthThe Fukushima Health Survey continues. There are 236 pediatric thyroid cancers to date in children from Fukushima. 18 cases were added during the most recent reporting period. http://fukushimavoice-eng2.blogspot.com/Some independent non-profit groups have been providing thyroid screenings. These do not show up in the official health survey as they are for the benefit of the exposed children and their families. As this data isn’t published, it is unclear how many thyroid cancers are known but not officially counted. Iwaki Mother’s Lab is one such citizen group providing thyroid screening. https://tarachineiwaki.org/thyroidIndependent research of the health outcomes of those exposed is lacking. Government agencies have tied up most funding and research opportunities. The available studies are tied to the government health study causing a significant lack of transparency. One of the government tied academic studies was plagued with scientific misconduct and data manipulation. The data manipulation made

500 rems exposure considered fatal dose - you die in 2 weeks or so
Conrad
01:34:54
doctors have reportedly been suppressed from making radiation related diagnoses like a rash seondary to radiation as one example
Conrad
01:35:35
so that could suppress declaring causes of death from radiation
MaryO

among the survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, girls / women got more cancer (total incidence) in every age-of-exposure cohort than did boys / men. BUT Boys and men got cancer!

I did not know until last summer that there is an island among Aleutian Archipelago, that was designated nuclear test site, where the US military conducted more than 200 nuclear weapon tests. when you think of the flow of ocean, the West Coast of the US has been long contaminated even before Fukushima accident. is there any data with this regard?

Do any of the particpants have anything to say about why, despite dissent, the 2020 olympics taking place in Tokyo (or even Japan!)?
Conrad
01:38:05
like what happened recently in Cartersville Ga USA where 8 people died in a nursing home in a few day period and no testing and no declaration as Corona Virus as cause of death. This happened within past two weeks. Same kind of story with radiation could occur.
