Dr. Helen Caldicott has devoted the past 40 years on educating the global community about the inherent risks and danger of nuclear energy and weapons. She is a physician, speaker, educator and the author of several books regarding nuclear energy. Dr. Caldicott shared with us what is happening at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant and explained how the meltdown of the 3 reactors affected the atmosphere, the ocean and our food supply. She shared some of the reasons why the Japanese government is not fully disclosing this disaster’s effects on human health. Dr. Caldicott is concerned about Building 4 at Fukushima and the catastrophic implications that would follow if this building were to melt down.
Dr. Caldicott talked about the number of diseases that are caused from radiation exposure. She explained how children are 10-20 times more sensitive to radiation, how girls are twice as sensitive as boys, and that fetuses are 1000 times more sensitive to radiation. She walked us through the process of how radiation in our food chain is passed from mother to fetus and how through mitosis of cells can turn into cancer. She reported on the number of diseases that can occur from radiation exposure including, cancer, diabetes, leukemia, hypothyroidism, thyroid cancer, to name a few.
Dr. Caldicott created a symposium in New York early this year in March where she invited some of the leading experts in the world to discuss these issues. You can download this symposium from her website. She invited major news sources, including CNN, ABC and others to attend and cover this conference. Unfortunately, only a few of the minor news sources covered the symposium.
In the last 25 years, there have been a million deaths due to the Chernobyl incident and the Fukushima melt down was 2-3 times stronger than Chernobyl. Her message is one of dire urgency for humanity to demand that the numerous nuclear power plants around the world be closed down before there is a world-wide disaster of which there will be grave implications.
Her passionate message leaves us with a sense of responsibility to continue spreading the word regarding the insanity of the nuclear energy and nuclear weapons issue. She leaves it in our hands! What will you do? Click on the link below to listen to her important message:
