Over one million have already died from Chernobyl, says Dr. Helen Caldicott. Also, she says deaths from Fukushima will be far greater. It is already one hundred thousand excess deaths in North America. It will go into the hundreds of thousands, minimum.
She says a few days after Fukushima, “I got this horrifying, horrifying vision, feeling that this was like descending into hell. And that there’s nothing anyone could do about it, or will be able to do about it. And that the results are irreversible.”
The nuclear industry is a front for the weapons industry.
The nuclear industry is banking on the fact that “solid” cancers will only be showing up in extraordinary amounts in twelve to sixteen years.
Nuclear waste has a half life of 25,000 years. It needs to be guarded that long. It is still deadly after 250,000 years.
Dr. Caldicott has been an expert in this field for many years and has written a number of books on it.
