The Chernobyl Disaster showed the world the ugly face of nuclear power - the one the nuclear industry is trying to hide and the one opponents have been warning about for many years before the meltdown. Chernobyl should have been the turning point of the world's nuclear policy, yet it appears it was only the first major nuclear accident. Since then, several others have occurred in Great Britain, Germany, the US and Japan. None were of the magnitude of Chernobyl, yet according to scientists, the next accident is only a question of time.

The health effects of Chernobyl continue to kill and maim
The health effects of Chernobyl were not only limited to the immediate radiation of the local population, which was forcibly evacuated from the region within a matter of days or the population of up to 1.000.000 so called liquidators, young men ordered to clean up the nuclear rubble and risk their lives for the creation of a sarcophagus. The environmental destruction, the damage to the ecosystem, the effects of low-level radiation and the social and psychological impact of Chernobyl are not to be underestimated. Even today, low level radiation, ingested by the general population in form of food and milk, is causing malformation, mutations and cancer deaths, as well as countless non-cancer diseases in the affected populations. Due to genomic instabilities caused by radiation, the full effects of the accident will only develop within the next six generations, showing that Chernobyl is more than just a temporary accident. It continues to kill - every year.
車諾比對健康的影響並不只限于即時輻射對本地的人口，也就是被強行從該地區撤離數天或 達1.000.000 人口的所謂的清盤人，青年男子被下令清理核廢墟和石棺造成生命的危害。破壞環境，破壞生態系統、 低輻射的影響和車諾比的社會和心理影響都不能低估。即使在今天，攝取食物和牛奶的形式，人口的整體的低標準輻射導致畸形、 基因突變與癌症死亡人數，以及無數的非癌症疾病受到影響的人口。由於輻射引起的基因組不穩定性，事故的全面影響將僅發展內的下六代，顯示車諾比不僅僅是暫時的事故。它繼續每年造成死亡。 (keep reading....

The World Health Organisation and nuclear power
For 50 years dangerous concentrations of radionuclides have been accumulating in earth, air and water from weapons testing and reactor incidents. Yet serious studies of the effects of radiation on health have been obscured – not least by the World Health Organisation.
by Alison Katz
Since 26 April 2007 (the 21st anniversary of Chernobyl), a large placard has informed WHO employees each day that one million children in the area around Chernobyl are irradiated and ill. IndependentWHO, the group organising the action, accuses the WHO of a cover-up of the health consequences of the catastrophe, and of failing to assist populations in danger.
The WHO, they insist, must end the agreement made in 1959 which binds it to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) (2) and prevents it from initiating a programme or activity in the area of nuclear power without consulting the IAEA “with a view to adjusting the matter by mutual agreement” (Article 1, Point 2).
Independence from the IAEA would permit the WHO to conduct a serious, scientific evaluation of the disaster and provide appropriate health care to contaminated people. A resolution to this effect is in preparation for the World Health Assembly in May 2008 (3) and an Appeal by Health Professionals has been launched (4).(Keep reading .....http://mondediplo.com/2008/04/14who)
Chernobyl, Belarus has all the information Japan needs
I made this video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fmvn-BnsPkE Sadly not enough views. People are sleeping. Big media is sleeping pill.
Belarus has all the information Japan needs.
My trips to Belarus in 2011 and to the W.H.O. / U.N. in Geneva. Belarus has all the information Japan needs - and still the belarusian government and the WHO...
