Project by Prof.Chihiro Ichihara – a physicist specialising in Neutron transport experiments working as an Associate Professor both at the Research Reactor Institute of Kyoto and at the Aichi Medical University. He gave an interesting presentation and said the Strontium 90 counter costs 160,000,- EUR. Currently he sends the teeth to a Lab in Basel, Switzerland.
Interesting thing: The World Health Organisation quit genetic Chernobyl research in the early 90ies, and instead researched caries in children teeth, withouth checking Strontium 90. Source: http://mondediplo.com/2008/04/14who
This radionuclide is build in as Calcium (bones and teeth), has a FULL decay time of 285 years, and causes bone cancer, influence on stem cells, bone marrow depression and destroys the immune system. It’s daughter isotope “yttrium 90, the daughter product of strontium — were known to concentrate in the pituitary gland.” “even slight damage to the pituitary gland from radioactivity in the air or in the mother’s diet could lead to a slight retardation in development” http://www.ratical.org/radiation/SecretFallout/SFchp14.html
