Re: What we know about the Fukushima water leaks...

I saw those numbers of 1800 mSv/hr thrown around, too, dhimmer. I used to try and set people straight, when I saw such total misinformation being disseminated, but as I get older I find that my patience is not what it used to be, I now just sake my head and think - poor fools :-( And, I'm sorry to s...

Re: Good Basic Shielding Documents

Interesting, but something a little more "above" the basic concepts would be better, IMHO. There are PLENTY of sources of more advanced material. I'm sure a quick Google search would net you lots of them. I just believe that one should understand the basic principles, before they try to tackle more...

Radiation on Trip to Mars Dangerous

A very interesting article in the May 31 2013 issue of Science, "Measurements of Energetic Particle Radiation in Transit to Mars on the Mars Science Laboratory". There are some assertions that the results agree with earlier predictions. I took a quick look at the attached document, but I am not sure...

Re: How about these Reports on Nuclear?

Nothing like posting two documents, that have nothing to do with each other :-)

One can possibly discuss the very one-sided conclusions in the UCS report, but whsat do you really want to discuss about the Nuclear Famine report? Seriously!

Re: WHO Fukushima Health Effects Report

I was trying to make a point as to possibly why a 70% increase (from 0.75% to 1.25% over lifetime) for thyroid cancer incidence was not deemed as importance because of the lower mortality rate from thyroid cancers, relative to other cancers.

I guess I missed the mark. Sorry :(

Re: WHO Fukushima Health Effects Report

Howarde, I am not an MD, or an epidemiologist. Like everything else in life, we have to presume that the results have been reviewed and reviewed again, before being published. If we had to individually verify *every* number we see published, (a) the world would grind to a stop and (b) most of us wou...

WHO Fukushima Health Effects Report

A new report was just released from the World Health organization, see below, on the same day that the Japanese government decided the restart of their nukes. In summary, in terms of specific cancers (for people in the most contaminated location), the estimated increased risks over what would normal...

Re: Russian Meteor fell near nuclear facilities

You'll find a way to work your anti-nuclear sentiments into any subject, won't you? Helen, Howard may have an "anti-nuclear" sentiment in his posts, but it's O.K. to question things and ask questions. Anyway, as far as I know, based on what I have read from Russian reports, there was no nuclear fac...
