The recently released report
titled "Preliminary Dose Estimation from the nuclear accident after
the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunamii" is a clumsy attempt
by the World Health Organization to downplay the public-health catastrophe
hitting the Japanese people and stalking the world population. To the
many skeptics who have already experienced WHO malfeasance, please bear
with this brief response to yet another scandalous cover-up from the
Geneva-based international agency.
The 122-page WHO report is a classic example of data manipulation -
reliance on biased studies, dismissal of contrary evidence and faulty
logic - further weighed down by reams of irrelevant text that insurance
agents call "boilerplate".
Buried deep in the report - though it should be buried six-feet deep
- are the expert panel's conclusions:
"It can be concluded that the estimated effective doses outside Japan
from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident are below (and
often far below) the dose levels regarded by the international radiological
protection community as very small."
"It can also be concluded that low effective doses are estimated in
much of Japan. "
"In the Fukushima prefecture and in neighbouring prefectures the estimated
effective doses are below the internationally agreed reference
level for public exposure due to radon in dwellings (annual effective
dose of about 10 mSv ).
Thus, according to the warped logic from the WHO, a person living inside
a house in Colorado or Kyushu is more threatened by radiation exposure
from radon gas in their basement than residents of Fukushima are from
reactor meltdowns. It should be noted that on the same day of the report's
release, the U.N. Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation
stated that none of the Fukushima nuclear workers' deaths were caused
by radiation exposure.
It is implausible that the WHO experts could leap so blindly - not just
stumble - into every pitfall laid by the Japanese government's spin-doctoring
of the Fukushima public health disaster. The report is not just a compendium
of minor errors; it amounts to a scandalous cover-up arising from the
health industry's lucrative connections to the nuclear industry. Huge
profits are made from radiation treatment of cancer with isotopes produced
inside nuclear reactors, even if this brutal form of "therapy" is hardly
more effective than a witch doctor's incantations.
The gross flaws in the WHO report include:
- acceptance of skewed data on radiation levels in food from testing
centers affiliated with the Japanese government, without inclusion of
studies by independent laboratories outside of Japan. No questions are
raised about the suppression of findings of high-level contamination
or of selective tissue samples from only the least -affected parts of
vegetables, fruits, grains, meat and fish.
- unquestioning acceptance of bogus data under the Japanese government's
system of so-called averaged-out radiation readings, which are diluted
and ignore the actual range of measurements from low areas to hot spots,
which can be up to 1,000 times higher.
- reference to thyroid studies done on Fukushima children taken after
the half-life expiration of iodine-131 following the March 15 explosions.
- categorical dismissal of any quantitative readings of radiation levels
in drinking water, based on dubious government measurements without
any consideration of the variable factor of snow melt from fallout-affected
- reliance on the British system of computer modeling of atmospheric
dispersal of isotopes, which excludes analysis of concentrated contamination
via heat-column interaction with the high-altitude jet stream (which
has long since opened an Arctic ozone hole).
- assumption that sea dumping of nuclear material is harmless except
for contamination of the fish catch in the immediate marine environs
of the Fukushima coast, without concern for spawning areas and long-term
contamination of marine feed stocks, including algae and plankton.
The WHO catalog of falsification is easily taken apart line-by-line
in every section, although the summary above should suffice to relegate
it to the medical fraud file.The modeling and selective data used by
the WHO are so fundamentally flawed that the only logical deduction
is that its experts are simply apologists for nuclear power - actually
it is far worse than apologetics since the so-called experts are agents-in-place
for the nuclear industry. A cursory glance at the qualifications of
just a few members of the Expert Panel indicates close ties with the
- Jane Simmonds, chair: U.K. Health Protection Agency, in reality with
the National Radiation Protection Board, which is notoriously allied
with the nuclear power industry
- Stephanie Haywood, rapporteur, University of Hull, Center for Adaptive
- Lynn Anspaugh, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
- Mikhail Bolonov, Soviet-era radiobiologist, perpetrated the Chernobyl
- Carl Blackburn, U.S. expert on irradiation for the food industry
- Shin Saigusa, Japan National Institute for Radiation Safety, formerly
with Fukushima University
- Ichiro Yamaguchi, head of the Yamagata testing station who stated
that Tohoku residents faced only very low doses of radiation
.- Philippe Verrger, WHO, French expert on irradiation for the European
Not a single critic of the nuclear industry was appointed to the expert
committee, nor radiologists or cancer specialists from private research
hospitals. None of the hot-spot readings by the Japanese citizen movements
were taken into account or even given mention. It is no coincidence
that stooges of Britain's nuclear industry led this panel, since the
U.K. was the first nation to support postwar Prime Minister Nobusuke
Kishi's quest for nuclear-bomb production.
Hippocratic Code violated
An agreement between the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and
the WHO, signed in May 1959, gave veto power to the nuclear authority
over any decisions related to radiation damage made by World Health
officials, which explains with its flunkies control the Fukushima study.
The Hippocratic Code has thus been replaced by an unspoken deal by medical
The Fukushima whitewash adds to the WHO list of crimes against humanity,
from its collaboration with major pharmaceutical companies in dubious
vaccine campaigns in developing countries, the refusal to link new pathogens
to over-dependance on vaccines and antibiotics in humans and animals,
rejection of the efficacy of herbal therapy until late into the anti-malaria
campaign, its botched response to avian influenza and the hysteria-driven
travel ban imposed on Hong Kong during so-called "SARS epidemic"(when
no travel advisory was issued on the far higher threat in northern Japan
following the Fukushima meltdowns).
Given such a dismal record of fraud and failure, it becomes clear that
the World Health Organization cannot be reformed. The WHO is a country
club for medical malpractitioners, and as such it should be abolished.
Its Fukushima hogwash is the last straw.
