Long Term Exposure to "Low Dose" Radiation is Far Worse a One Time Big Exposure, Especially if the Chronic Exposure is From Man Made Radiation

Doses delivered slowly and continuously over extended periods of time, such as from the ingestion or inhalation of fission-products, are hundreds of times as damaging as short, high-intensity exposures at the same small total dose produced by a brief X-ray.

Radiation and AIDS

Furthermore, as reported in Red Balloon (Spring, 1988), widespread exposure to fallout can affect the immune defenses of the body and increase the mutation rate of micro-organisms. Thus, radioactive releases due to nuclear bomb tests and nuclear powerplant accidents (among other man-made factors) correlate directly with the worldwide epidemics of new diseases and disease complexes such as AIDS, and with a resurgence of older infectious diseases such as measles, hepatitis, tuberculosis, cholera and syphilis. [See Figure 6] The correlation is direct, and the lack of government and scientific concern over the evidence is astounding. Wherever heavy rainfall, diet and social disintegration combine to decimate immune systems and introduce radioactive materials Strontium-90 being a leading culprit into people’s bodies, modern plagues are being introduced in populations unable to ward them off.

In recent years, it has become clear that the damage to the immune defenses of the body also lowers its ability to fight cancer. Strontium-90 and other fission products similar to calcium contaminate milk, meat, and root vegetables that are the staples of most western diets. They concentrate in bones and damage the cells of the immune system originating in the bone marrow of newborns as well as adults.

Interestingly, a study by the March of Dimes (NY Times, Apr. 20, 1991), showed that in the mid-1980s, the infant mortality for the Asian population of New York City had plunged to an all-time low of five per 1,000 live births, as low or lower than reached in any other large city in the world although the infant mortality rate remained about four times greater for the Black population.
The enormous discrepancy fits exactly the hypothesis that it is chiefly the milk, cheese and large amounts of high fat, high Strontium-90 beef that compose the diet of most people in the U.S., but which are not part of most Asians’ diets, that have been devastating the immune systems of the rest of the world’s population since the nuclear age began.

No socio-economic or medical care changes could explain the sudden large fluctuations in mortality over so short a time. Likewise, no other toxic agents such as DDT, PCB, dioxin or other herbicides, pesticides, industrial chemicals or seepages from toxic waste dumps could explain the sharp rises and declines in the U.S. Monthly Vital Statistics across the country as a whole. Only a short-lived toxic agent such as iodine-131 together with other short-lived isotopes could account for such rapid rises and declines of mortality. Indeed, it is the appearance of this short-lived radioactive agent that highly correlates with the sudden rises and declines of all three types of mortality reported for the different regions of the U.S.

Radioactive iodine-131 and other fission products damage key hormone-producing organs such as the thyroid, the pituitary and other glands involved in the control of vital functions such as growth, development, reproduction and immune resistance. As the evidence provided by the Chernobyl accident strongly suggests, low levels of fission products in the air, drinking water and the diet are likely to be the principal factors in the otherwise unexplained changes in mortality and fertility seen in the United States during the years of nuclear weapons testing following World War II.

  1. There is no real validated scientific evidence that low chronic doses over an extended time are worse,than an acute dose of the same total value.

    1. Thanks for the lies to be exposed, yes there is quite a bit of epidemiological studies, as well as intuitive "makes a lot of sense".

      basing the ICRP on an atom bomb, on a very specific population who eats A LOT of kelp....sheesh, that is nothing short of insane.

    2. The epidemiology studies you cite are inconclusive as there are very large uncertainties associated with low dose studies and too many confounders. Why do you think NRC cancelled their study?

  2. There actually is... validated by the people dying worldwide. And I thought for sure the low hanging fruit for you here would be the "Its coal burning plants that cause all that radiation"... mayhaps you forgot your lines... better luck next time. I am sure if we look into this further we would find that the people who promoted the term "GRIDS" when aids was discovered were people tied to nuclear funding. Although i freely admit that is a hypothesis based solely on your lack of conscience, and dedication to lying and murdering.

    2. You don't understand what the word validated means. In this context to validate an assertion is to compare against known results. Since the only known results come from large acute dose effects, anything related to long term stochastic risk models versus actual deterministic effects are apples and oranges.

      A hypothesis isn't fact. It's just a supposition that is on the front end of a formal inquiry. All too often people take a hypothesis like LNT as a fact. It isn't because it's still to this day, only a hypothesis.

    3. Lying and murdering? That's pretty irrational thinking given you have no evidence to that. Chernobyl and Fukushima show us enough energy with meltdowns the radiological consequences that actually arose didn't even come close to the most conservative models based on a flawed application of LNT to define a collective dose uniformly over a large population

    5. Loose you have lost it. "The only known 'results' come from large acute doses"

      Rubbish, Nuremberg in your future.

    6. The stochastic risk models are just that- models. 1 Sv over a lifetime isn't the same as 1 Sv acute. Humans have repair mechanisms to handle these regular low doses. Else the cancer rates in Ramsay Iran would be the largest. They are amongst the lowest. There are no validated stochastic risk models. Everything is bounded by overly conservative estimates.

  3. The evidence you refuse to see is all around you, and yes the LNT is flawed shit head... No-one on the anti-nuke side wants to keep that garbage around either... We need more strict regulations. YOU are the one who wants to argue along the lines of LNT that plutonium = bananas when in small enough amounts. See? Lies and Murder, right there. So unless you can go and inhale some plutonium, like .00000001 grams (not much right), then wait five years. Then get back to me when you are the picture of health and conviviality. Unless you have read the same studies of beagle deaths that we have... Since you WONT do that, then i have shown you the lying and murdering I am speaking of. The lying is to yourself, and the murdering is to us. Since you are so fuckin "in the know" with the nukes, where are the Fuku coriums? You come here to disrupt and lie with ZERO credentials or evidence of the "truth" you speak. Even your heros at WHOI or the NRC are like, "Its surprising to us that there are continued emissions..."; "It's not under control..." Drink it up fucker, still waiting for you to answer with anything but philosophy.

    1. Indeed, those who promote nuclear and radiation are willingly and knowingly murdering at least a subset of our population in large percentages. Those youngest and those weakest to withstand radiation are taking the hardest hits with full on disease.

      Yes, radiation is murder, a clear and present danger.

    2. I have plenty of credentials. I'm not going to put my degrees out on the web. I remain anonymous for my family's safety and we'll being. Alot of ecoterrorists would like to do harm to people that challenge their ideology.

      You all speak in generalities. Who specifically is being murdered by radiation? It's absurd to propose such a statement without evidence. Hitchens Razor says the onus is on you to bring forth the cause and effect which you haven't done. All the while you maintain your ideology without merit. Bring forth the death certificate that says cause of death Fukushima radiation. You won't because you cant. You are just mired in antinuclear orthodoxy like the plutonium meme. One atom weighs 1e-22 gms. So prove that is deadly. Don't come after me with 0.00001 gm statements. Stand by 1e-22 gms or pound sand. Because 1 microgram is about 1e16 atoms. And your ideology says 1 atom. So either stand by that or stfu.

    4. Heck there were dead dogs in the,freezer section of the biology dept that shared our rad lab. Don't come after me with beagle deaths. Their deaths saved human lives. I have had dogs my whole life. So unless you are a vegetarian and believe man is not the apex then I suggest you stop thinking animal sacrifice is heartless. Recall after the Oak Ridge criticality in 1958. They sacrificed a burro to learn more about acute effects. About 50 cGy was learned as the threshold for lymphocyte reduction. That figure holds true for today. So the animal contribution to man's understanding goes without saying. There is a humane way to conduct studies without some self righteous PETA clod having a tizzy.
