Scientific Proof -- Radiation Causes Increased Disease / Infections Via Reduced Immune System Function

stock here, we already "knew" this, but here comes the scientific proof.

We investigated the relationship between epidemics and soil radiation through an exploratory study using sentinel surveillance data (individuals aged <20 years) during the last three epidemic seasons of influenza and norovirus in Japan. We used a spatial analysis method of a geographical information system (GIS). We mapped the epidemic spreading patterns from sentinel incidence rates. We calculated the average soil radiation [dm (μGy/h)] for each sentinel site using data on uranium, thorium, and potassium oxide in the soil and examined the incidence rate in units of 0·01 μGy/h. The correlations between the incidence rate and the average soil radiation were assessed. Epidemic clusters of influenza and norovirus infections were observed in areas with relatively high radiation exposure. A positive correlation was detected between the average incidence rate and radiation dose, at r = 0·61–0·84 (P < 0·01) for influenza infections and r = 0·61–0·72 (P < 0·01) for norovirus infections. An increase in the incidence rate was found between areas with radiation exposure of 0 < dm < 0·01 and 0·15 ⩽ dm < 0·16, at 1·80 [95% confidence interval (CI) 1·47–2·12] times higher for influenza infection and 2·07 (95% CI 1·53–2·61) times higher for norovirus infection. Our results suggest a potential association between decreased immunity and irradiation because of soil radiation. Further studies on immunity in these epidemic-prone areas are desirable.

  1. Quantity of acute dose matters. Not so much chronic.

    1. Thanks for detailing the lies of the nuclear industry. Pretending that unless a huge dose of radiation kills you quickly, then there is no harm.

      In fact, the continued chronic attack at low levels is far more damaging.

    2. Er, incorrect. We get about 100 rem in our lifetime. No impact. 100 rem acute increases cancer risk 5% on average. Someone fed you a line. Probably that idiot Blundersen. He falsely equates Borax to Fukushima. Knowledgeable people as myself outed him. You dont hear much about him these days. The antinuclear movement is in hiding.

    4. Chronic isnt more damaging than acute. The body is used to chronic.its called an imune system for a reason.

    5. What a load of Turd, radiation destroys the immune system.

      You have again failed to respond.

  2. Speaking of research, Aug 16, 2016 - Public access to NASA-funded research data now is just a click away where before this was behind a purchasing wall. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc

  4. Since Trump is now president and the focus is jobs for America this article by Stock can help kick this off. Here in the states, Wyoming is largest mine producer of Bentonite clay in the world calculated at 70%. With a mix of Bentonite clay, Magnesium and Backing Soda we could help to slowly reduce radiation in the soil. The clay is negative ion that helps absorb radiation speeding up the half-life, magnesium helps wick away radiation from plants and the baking soda has a ph value of 8.3 which will help restore the alkaline value from an acidic state. Time we get busy, run a spreader in the field with the mix mentioned, till the soil, run the spreader again. This will even work on coastal waters to help restore the tidal pools, retrofit the frickin Geoengineering aircraft with this mix and spray at low-level flights just outside the rolling waves which can be used as a blender, rolling waves themselves create negative ions. At this point it's better than doing nothing, we have to try not to suck. You'll even find this on the Trump Facebook page.

    1. "try not to suck" is the new replacement for "Soar With The Eagles"
