Propaganda at work: Quotes from the article:
“as little as 50 becquerels of cesium in a young human body, which is about a fifth or a sixth of the amount measurable by other devices widely used to scan adults, the study said.” Source: http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2015/10/09/national/science-health/extensive-radiation-study-finds-no-internal-cesium-exposure-fukushima-children/#.VhgH3ysvd_m
This is technically inadequate. Low internal contamination is therefore not recognizable, and remains undetected. Probably the device has been designed on purpose that way. In addition, these measurements must be constantly repeated, monthly, every three months or every six months. Theoretically, as long as the person lives. The paradox is that the cesium reaches more and more people, and the concentration increases.
update: The used baby scanners can detect cesium 137 only if it is above 50 becquerel per scanned baby. Assuming a baby’s weight is 5 Kg, then the average could by 10 bq per kg bodyweight. Or 50 bq in the heart muscle tissue of the baby. After 4 TEPCO years, the internal radiation is not high enough to be measured, and the baby scanners are not accurate enough. But the radiation will increase.
Also from the article:
“Even if cesium below Babyscan’s capabilities was present, the resulting exposure level would be less than 16 microsieverts a year, which is negligible, the study said”
Are they out of their mind? Does Babyscan measure Cesium as potassium, and then Cesium is not found? Cesium is beta and gamma radiation – has a different energy signature.This is murderous epidemiology.

A 1,3 billionths of a gram of Cesium 137 (4,000 becquerel) creates a load of 100 Becquerel per Kg in the body of a 40 Kg heavy child.
“cesium is easy to accumulate in the heart”
“50 Becquerel break your heart rhythm at 20 to 30 becquerel per kilogram of body weight” (CHILDREN!)
“if, during pregnancy, there is more than 200 becquerel per kilogram of cesium in the placenta it can lead to sudden death of the child”
“even 1 bq of Cesium 137 in Children kg is too much, and in Belarus 37 bq are the standard”
“Pectin can not help to get incorporated radionuclides out of the body.”
“we can rightly consider the Cesium-137 in relatively small doses (20-30 Bq/kg); a breach of the regulatory processes in the body”
“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” Source:
“In most cases effect of existing concentrations of radioactive caesium in the organism (10 – 20 Bq/kg) doesn’t cause its death, but influencing the energetic apparatus of cardiac cells significantly reduces their adaptable possibilities, and as a result functioning during stress situations and banal loads (physical and mental tension, hypoxia, disorder of temperature regime, alcohol drinking, infections and allergic diseases) becoming impossible.” http://chernobyl-today.org/images/stories/Bandajevski_2001_Radiocaesium_and_heart.pdf
The degree of the Cesium 137 accumulation in the body depends on a number of factors:
1. Concentrations in food
The highest levels of radionuclides were found in the body of people resided in areas with the highest rate of
contaminat ion with radionuclides and consumed mushrooms an berries.
Females accumulate Cesum 137 in their body in considerably lower concentrations than males, living in the same conditions.
Cesium 137 concentrations in children’s organs sig nificantly exceed the ones in adults.
4. Rhesus blood group
Individuals with rhesus negative blood accumulate Cesium 137 in lower concentrations in comparison withindividuals who have rhesus positive blood.
5. Physiological condition of the body
The Cesium 137 accumulation by the female body is sharply increasing during pregnancy.
6.Action of agents affecting incorporation of radionuclides in the digestive tract or their elimination
Enterosorbents including organic and nonorganic components can bind and remove radionuclides from the body.
Clay and pectin compounds are the most promising in this regardHowever, the question on the long term use of enterosorbents to reduce incorporation of radioactive elements in the organism now remains open. It is due to the fact that during enterosorption not only Cesium 137 radionuclides but other essential micro nutrients can be eliminated from the body.
7. Structural and functional peculiarities of organs and tissues
For many years research papers devoted to incorporation of Cesium 137 into the human and animal body stated that the above radionuclide is accumulated mainly by the muscular system. Radiometric measurements performed by Gomel State Medical University in 1996 – 1997 during autopsies of inhabitants of areas contaminated with radioactive elements found high levels of Cesium 137 in the heart, thyroid, adrenal and pancreatic glands, small and large intestine, stomach, kidneys, spleen, brain, lung and skeletal muscles.
