Following the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the Japanese Government raised the level of allowable radiation from 1 to 20 millisieverts per year. This so-called “safety level” is the cut-off criterion for compensation for damage to private property incurred by fallout contamination. The reasoning is: if doses below 20 millisieverts per year are safe, then property holders have no grounds upon which to file suit for compensation and the perpetrators are thereby shielded from liability.
officials proclaim that there is no evidence of harm below 20 millisieverts
per year, this detailed review of both historical and contemporary
radiation research demonstrates the contrary:
My video review tests the official claim of safety against established radiobiology codified in the United States National Academy of Sciences' consensus report on low-dose radiation. The Academy's risk model predicts that 20 millisieverts or below will not only cause cancers, but will primarily kill women and children.
