Evacuations Killed More Than Cancer Ever Will Fukushima Nukeblog July 20, 2012

From the Forbes debunking article:

Of course, the authors, Hoeve and Jacobson, don’t put it that way. They state that this number is non-trivial. But the number of cancers that would occur in the present 127 million Japanese population over their lives in the absence of Fukushima radiation is about (BEIR VII):
52,000,000 ± 50,000.
Assuming their calculations are correct, and their assertion that they all occur in Japan is correct, then in the presence of Fukushima radiation this number becomes:
52,000,130 ± 50,000.
This difference is less than trivial, it is statistically zero.
This fear-mongering comes down yet again to the Linear No-Threshold dose hypothesis, or LNT. As has been discussed before, LNT supposes that all radiation is deadly and that there is no dose below which harmful effects will not occur (BEIR VII) . While LNT has been hotly debated for over 50 years, everyone in the field agrees that the effects of low-dose radiation are so small that it cannot be seen in the overall population. The InternationalCommission on Radiological Protection (ICRP), long a promulgator of LNT, finally admitted in its Publication 103 (2007) that “Collective effective dose is not intended as a tool for epidemiological risk assessment, and it is inappropriate to use it in risk projections.” But this is just what ideologues like Jacobson keep doing.
Of real importance is that the evacuation killed more people than the radiation ever will, even using Hoeve and Jacobson’s numbers. According to the The Daily Yomiuri, at least 573 people have died during the evacuation of the area around the Fukushima plants. And since many were evacuated from areas that were not contaminated enough to cause any health issues, this continued fear-mongering borders on being criminal. It distracts from the real suffering caused by the tsunami and the fear from the meltdown. Yes, there are contaminated areas that have to be cleaned up. Yes, Tepco and the Japanese government failed to heed the serious critiques and suggestions that the world nuclear community has been telling them for many years. But residents were evacuated immediately, and they were told not to eat anything from the region for the few months afterwards while I-131 died away, averting the real danger to children that was the biggest problem from Chernobyl. As Hoeve and Jacobson show, the doses to the public from Cs-137 have been too low to cause significant, or even measurable, harm.

Dr Doom: US nuclear Baby valley of death Millions to die

Dr Doom:  US nuclear Baby valley of death Millions to die

This doctor "Mark Sircus" who evidently specializes in medicine predicted "millions of baby deaths and new cancer victims", called for evacuating Hawaii and the entire US West coast, and claimed that. Japanese and American children are already suffering with symptoms that appear to be the first signs of Radiation Sickness."

 Dr. Mark Sircus bearer of tragic radiation news
Sunday, the prestigious Doctor Mark Sircus released a new report concurring with a host of scientists and other doctors giving evidence that people of Japan and United States have been subjected to dangerous levels of radiation since Fukushima nuclear plant meltdowns, and also subjected to a tight cover-up by authorities and media, the result of which will be millions of baby deaths and new cancer victims. Japanese and American children are already suffering with symptoms that appear to be the first signs of Radiation Sickness.

"Finally, three months later, we are getting some numbers on what the real dangers are. And finally we can begin to understand the enormous cover-up of the nuclear doom that is reaching lungs all over the west coast of America, Canada, Alaska, Hawaii and at least half of Japan!" stated Dr. Mark Sircus.
Dr. Sircus Ac., OMD, is director of International Medical Veritas Association (IMVA) He was trained in acupuncture and oriental medicine at Institute of Traditional Medicine in Sante Fe, N.M., and at the School of Traditional Medicine of New England in Boston. He served at the Central Public Hospital of Pochutla in Mexico, and was awarded the title of doctor of oriental medicine for his work including one of the first nationally certified acupuncturists in the U.S. Dr. Sircus's IMVA is dedicated to unifying various disciplines in medicine with the goal of creating a new dawn in healthcare.
"For infants, it’s a terrible valley of death we have created for them." says Dr. Sircus. "As we shall see for years, all of them have been born with already polluted bloodstreams and now, the very young ones are dying in greater numbers on the west coast of the United States since Fukushima blew up."

No way to avoid tiny hot particles
"After the first week, officials had enough information to call for evacuation of a wide area in Japan and also Hawaii, Alaska and the entire west coast of North America," said Dr. Sircus.
All of northern Japan and the U.S. west coast should have been evacuated according to Dr. Sircus, admittedly "as impossible as evacuating the entire planet or the entire northern hemisphere."
"Avoiding exposure is always the best plan but there is no way to avoid breathing in air contaminated with tiny hot particles. Inhalation issues are much more frightening than ingestion issues because you can pick and choose what you eat and drink but you can't buy bottled air."
"Nuclear Toxicity Syndrome," one of the books authored by Dr. Sircus, is about "how to survive in nuclear and chemical hell," he says. Dr. Sircus, a founding guide of Gulf Coast Barefoot Doctors, deliverers of Detox Survival Kits to hundreds of Gulf Of Mexico BP oil and Corexit poisoned survivors.
Echoing the frustration of many Gulf of Mexico "barefoot doctors" and other volunteers since the BP oil catastrophe there over a year ago, Dr. Sircus states that "one cannot do what is necessary to survive hell if a person doesn’t know they are living in one." The problem is that, due to the media blackout on environmental hazards associated with non-renewable energy big business, relatively few people know the hell Gulf Coast people are enduring. Many Gulf Coast residents continue to attribute ongoing illness to a persistent "flu." Just as more people are doing today in relation to Fukushima radiation, many Gulf Coast residents remain in denial that Gulf of Mexico radiation from seeping oil and antibiotic resistant bacteria from the dispersant Corexit are lethal and government has not helped them. This is why Dr. Sircus and many health professionals contributed to the work of Mr. Jeff Rense for his book, "Coming Clean: From Denial to Detox" that he freely offers to save lives.
Despite mixed reports from officials and media about the vulnerability of United States nuclear plants threatened by flooding, Dr. Sircus highlights, "It just keeps getting worse by the day, and now we have Fort Calhoun nuclear plant outside Omaha, Nebraska on emergency alert as first fire and now flooding threatens to overwhelm yet another nuclear facility."
"We knew nuke power plants were bad news, but who would think they would build them on fault lines or in flood zones?" he asks.
Should US West Coast residents be worried?
While people like Arnie Gundersen have tiptoed the answer to whether west coasters should be worried about Fukushima fallout, Dr. Sircus answered more bluntly:
"I am afraid I will have to be brutally honest and be the bearer of really terrible news. The information coming out about hot particle concentrations near Fukushima, Tokyo, and now Seattle tell us that not only should all those populations be worrying but their governments should have been issuing evacuation orders months ago."
 "Because of the jet stream in April, after the large explosions that destroyed three reactor buildings, it was as dangerous in Seattle and much of the west coast of North America as in Tokyo." (Emphasis added)
According to Dr. Sircus, the average Tokyo resident is thought to have inhaled 10 “hot particles” per day throughout April 2011. Inhabitants of Fukushima were estimated to have inhaled 30-40 times more than that—up to 400 hot particles per day every day that month.
In Seattle, WA, it is estimated that the average person absorbed five “hot particles” per day during April 2011, or 10 “hot particles” per day if athletes working out.
"These invisible atomic particles become lodged in your lungs, intestines, bone or muscle."
Being very conservative and saying this has dropped to even one a day "would still be 30 of these death particles a month, approximately 200 radioactive particles into their lungs and other tissues by now.
"When you think that if even one of these 200 is plutonium," states Dr. Sircus, "we have to think in terms of millions of eventual cancer deaths."

Dr. Mark Sircus recently released e-books including: Winning the War Against Cancer, Survival Medicine for the 21st Century, Sodium Bicarbonate, Rich Man’s Poor Man’s Cancer Treatment, New Paradigms in Diabetic Care and Bringing Back the Universal Medicine: IODINE.
He is a pioneer in natural detoxification and chelation of toxic chemicals and heavy metals and a champion of the medicinal value of minerals and seawater. Transdermal Magnesium Therapy, his first published work, offers a stunning breakthrough in medicine, an entirely new way to supplement magnesium that naturally increases DHEA levels, brings cellular magnesium levels up quickly, relieves pain, brings down blood pressure and pushes cell physiology in a positive direction. Magnesium chloride delivered transdermally brings a quick release from a broad range of conditions. For more information on Dr. Sircus's contributions, see International Medical Veritas Association:
