Monkeys, Brains and TEPCO radiation:

“The effects associated with long-term low-dose radiation exposure on fetuses are among the many health concerns. Children born to atomic bomb survivors from Hiroshima and Nagasaki showed low birth weight, high rates of microcephaly, and reduced intelligence due to abnormal brain development. Experiments with pregnant mice or rats and radiation exposure had been reported to cause low birth weight, microcephaly or both. We identified one similar study on wild animals, which reported that the brains of birds captured in the vicinity of the Chernobyl NPP weighted lower compared to those of birds captured elsewhere.” https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-017-03866-8

Dr. Shin-ichi Hayama seems to refuse to link radiation and brain / head growth development. although it is known for decades, although at the same time he shows a connection. This is the typical scientific behavior. Calling their own studies myth.

Birds, Brains, and ROSATOM Chernobyl Radiation:

“Impaired brain development is linked to oxidative stress because of the high lipid content of brains. Large-brained individuals must be capable of continuously supplying the brain with high levels of oxygen for neuronal ion pumping, synthesis of neurotransmitters and protection from toxic compounds. This makes brain maintenance a highly oxidizing process that requires large amounts of antioxidants, in particular glutathione. Therefore, any environment with low antioxidant levels and/or high rates of use of antioxidants will provide a challenge to normal brain development.” http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0016862

Humans, Brains and US Reactors Radiation:

“mental retardation in children exposed to radiation during the fifth to 15th weeks of their mother’s pregnancy. Radiation kills brain cells, causing both an underdeveloped brain [microcephaly] and mental retardation” https://ratical.org/radiation/NAvictims.html
