Action & Text by independentwho.org

“For five and a half years we have maintained a daily presence (the Hippocratic Vigil) outside the headquarters of the WHO in Geneva. The aim of the vigil is to denounce the lies and cover-up of this international organisation on the subject of the health consequences of radioactive pollution…”

This report bears all the hallmarks of WHO’s subservience to the IAEA. It was not written by WHO personnel but by an International Expert Panel convened by the WHO. http://independentwho.org/en/2012/12/08/who-report-a-travesty/

“World Health Organisation experts played a role of advocates of the Soviet authorities which tried to play down by any means the scale of the Chernobyl accident and its radiological consequences”: http://www.rri.kyoto-u.ac.jp/NSRG/reports/1998/kr-21/Malko96-1.html

“experts of IAEA neglected protests of Belarussian and Ukrainian scientists insisting serious increase of child thyroid diseases around Chernobyl against the conclusion of the International Chernobyl Project that there was no health effect there. Five years later the same experts of IAEA had to recognize ′myth′ of thyroid diseases to be facts…” http://www.rri.kyoto-u.ac.jp/NSRG/reports/kr21/kr21pdf/Imanaka1.pdf

> “Up to 1,300 million people have been killed, maimed or diseased by nuclear power since its inception. The industry’s figures massively underestimate the real cost of nuclear power, in an attempt to hide its victims from the world.” http://exacteditions.theecologist.org/read/ecologist/vol-29-no-7-november-1999-5368/29/2/

> “We are constantly being told about a ‘permissible amount of radiation.’ Who permitted it? Who has any right to permit it?” Albert Schweitzer

“The threshold level of 20 mSv/year is in contrast to the statutory legal limit imposed by the 1972 industrial safety regulation for the nuclear industry. For workers at a nuclear power plant, the maximum limit of exposure (in the controlled area) prescribed by law is 20 mSv/year (not exceeding 50 mSv/year) and a cumulative dose of 100 mSv in five years. The law prohibits the entry of ordinary citizens into the controlled area with radiation dose of 1.3 mSv/quarter and further prohibits workers to eat, drink or sleep in that area. It also prohibits pregnant women to be exposed to radiation dose in a controlled area of over 2mSv/year.

I would like to recall that in Chernobyl the threshold limit for obligatory resettlement was 5 mSv/year or above, apart from soil contamination levels. There are also a significant number of epidemiological studies, which indicate that cancer and other diseases could occur in low dose radiation below 100 mSv/year. According to these studies, there is no low threshold limit for the occurrence of diseases.” http://independentwho.org/en/2012/11/29/anand-grover-fukushima/
