Chris Busby; Fukushima Thyroid Cancer- The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences: Call to Europeans to use the existing regulations to challenge the "Dose" method employed by Nuclear Health Physicists and the ICRP.


Call to Europeans to use the existing regulations to challenge the “Dose” method employed by Nuclear Health Physicists and the ICRP.

There was a Symposium at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in Stockholm on Nov 3rd. It was held jointly by the Swedish National Council for Nuclear Waste and the Swedish National Committee for Radiation Protection Research. 

The issue was the health effects of releases associated with the project to dispose of high level nuclear waste at Forsmark on the Baltic Sea. 

 Dr Busby has put in 2 reports to the Swedish Environmental Council in 2010 and 2012 which drew attention to the massive errors in the current ICRP model upon which the project depends. The requirement is that there are no significant doses to any future resident of the area for 100,000 years. 

Sweden, like all European States is subject to the EURATOM Basic Safety Standards Directive which contains a clause, an amendment by the European Greens in 1996 at the suggestion of Busby, Alice Stewart, Alexy Yablokov and Rosalie Bertell. It states that if “New and important Evidence” emerges that the risk model is wrong, all practices involving radiation exposure in the EU must be Justified all over again. 

Here, Chris Busby attacks the risk model and those who had presented extremely biased science through-out the day of the symposium. He draws attention particularly to the recent publication in the journal Epidemiology which reports 120 thyroid cancers in 380,000 children living near Fukushima. This shows an error in the ICRP model of 2600 times.
