“We are concerned specifically with the syndrome of long-lived incorporated radionuclides (SLIR) because when caesium 137 enters the human body, it is incorporated into several vital organs and systems simultaneously. The consequence of this process is the inhibition of the cellular energy cycle, which causes metabolic disorders in the human body. Lowering the level of energy carriers leads to destructive changes and insufficient, restorative processes at the cellular and intracellular level. Research conducted at the Gomel State Medical Institute (1990-1999) showed that symptoms of the syndrome of long-lived radionuclides appeared in
children when the concentration of Cs-137 in the body reached a level of 50 Bq / kg and above.
The most easily demonstrable problems, in terms of ability to function, arise in the cardiovascular, urinary, endocrine, reproductive, digestive, immune systems, and in the sight organs. Since pathological changes in these organs and systems occur at the same time, the condition is difficult to diagnose. For a correct diagnosis, a radiometric examination to determine the concentration of Cs-137 in the body, and a clinical examination in the laboratory of vital organs, need to be undertaken. In assessing the impact of radioactive caesium in the human body, we must take into consideration its ability to induce phenotypic alterations in the genetic apparatus, which, in our opinion, is at the root of these serious diseases. Official medicine does not recognise the syndrome of long-lived incorporated radionuclides as a manifestation of the impact of radioactive caesium affecting the entire organism, and consequently the medical assistance given to people, living in the areas contaminated by radioactive elements, is less effective.
The concept of the syndrome of incorporated radioactive elements forms the basis of the project submitted to the international community by the centre for coordination and analysis “Ecology and Health” under the title: “An integrated model of life in a radiocontaminated zone”. The project aims to create a system of effective measures to protect the population that continues to live in areas contaminated by radioactive substances. Even relatively small amounts of radioactive caesium incorporated into the body are recognized as harmful to human health. Bearing this in mind, the project provides a set of measures to prevent the entry of radioactive elements into the body. The project is being implemented in the Ivankov district of Kiev in Ukraine, located in the immediate vicinity of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. It includes:
1. Regular radiometric control of the population and of food products. The
identification of risk groups – groups of people who have radioactive
substances in the body;
2. The evaluation of key factors in the metabolism and in the state of the vital
organs of the children and adults in the risk group;
3. Provision of the necessary medical and preventive care for the population. To
do this, a specialist clinic with modern diagnostic technology needs to be set
up in the Ivankov district;
4. Individual correction of metabolic imbalance, caused by the prolonged
presence of Cs-137 in the body, through a planned diet;
5. Organization of uncontaminated food production (not containing radioactive
substances) for people with serious metabolic alterations resulting from
prolonged exposure to incorporated radioactive substances.
6. An important part of the project consists of informing the public about
collective and individual health protection measures that are necessary when
you live in an area contaminated by radioactive elements.
