Fukushima: Children's Heart Attacks spreads, premature death

Summary of interview with Christopher Busby, expert on health effects of ionizing radiation

At :40 in

  • Yury Bandazhevsky, studied effects of cesium-137 on children in Belarus after Chernobyl
  • He found that children with just 20-30 Bq/kg of cesium-137 suffering cardiac arrhythmia (heart not beating properly) and were suffering heart attacks and dying
  • Not a question of cancer or leukemia (although that occurred as well), there were very high rates of heart disease in these children… manifesting heart disease usually only found in old people

  • Heart cells are non replaceable by-and-large
  • Only 1% of heart cells replaced in a year
  • Cesium-137 goes to muscle, so concentrates in muscle tissue of heart

At 5:00 in

  • It does seem from what people have been telling me in the Fukushima affected area, is they [children] are actually suffering heart attacks

At 6:40 in

  • Cesium-137′s effects on heart muscle cannot be repaired, heart tissue cannot be repaired
  • These children will suffer their whole life and die young
