Radiation and Children: The Ignored Victims

Radiation and Children: The Ignored Victims.

Hundreds of U.S. industrial sites that generate nuclear electricity and manufacture nuclear weapons
regularly release radiation to our air, water and soil via the burial of wastes. These same industries are
now lobbying for permission from government to release radioactive materials for re-use in consumer
products. There is no safe radiation dose. Whether the release is accidental or allowed is
irrelevant. This dramatic surge in the release and distribution of radiation, makes it ever more clear
that we do not need a nuclear accident to cause disease.

Nuclear plant workers release unknown amount of radioactive tritium into Mississippi River

Workers at the Grand Gulf Nuclear Plant in Port Gibson, Miss., last Thursday released a large amount of radioactive tritium directly into the Mississippi River, according to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), and experts are currently trying to sort out the situation. An investigation is currently underway to determine why the tritium was even present in standing water found in an abandoned unit of the plant, as well as how much of this dangerous nuclear byproduct ended up getting dumped into the river. Many also want to know why workers released the toxic tritium before conducting proper tests.

The Fukushima nuclear disaster just keeps getting messier and scarier | Grist

Last Monday, Yukio Edano, chief cabinet secretary, defended the Japanese government's response to the nuclear disaster at Fukushima, insisting that the plant complex is in "a stable situation, relatively speaking." That's somewhat like the official description of 11,500 tons of water purposely dumped into the ocean waters off Fukushima as "low-level radioactive" or "lightly radioactive." It is, of course, only "lightly" so in comparison to the even more radioactive water being stored at the plant in its place. But that's the thing with descriptive words: they can leave so much to the eye of the beholder -- and the Japanese government hasn't been significantly more eager than the Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco), which runs the complex, to behold all that much when it comes to Fukushima.
