Radiation and Human Health: Three Years After the Japan Disaster
It’s been almost three years since the nuclear disaster began at the Fukushima Daiichi reactors; its impact is massive and widespread and it is still leaking massive amounts of radiated water. It will be decades before the full scope of the impacts of this ongoing and growing catastrophe is fully understood, but significant health, economic, environmental and social consequences are already evident and quantifiable. Furthermore, independent expert analyses have documented extraordinary industry influence on government regulators, especially widespread collusion among the Japanese government, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), the owner/operator of Fukushima, and the nuclear/utility industry. The Fukushima disaster leaves Japan with colossal economic loss, radiation exposure to children and others, and a nation grappling with an uncertain future.
