Fukushima Fact and Fiction

Canadian Nuclear Science expert exposes Fukushima myths.

Dr. Jerry M. Cuttler's 50-year career in research into nuclear sciences and engineering of many Canadian and international energy projects includes design and procurement of reactor control, nuclear safety and radiation monitoring systems.  He has provided on-site support to operating stations and continues to supply technical and licensing services.  Since 1995, Dr. Cuttler has been studying the health effects of radiation and drawing international attention to the beneficial effects of low radiation.

Dr Cuttler has written a piece for Heartlander (link)

Fukushima and the Misunderstood Effects of Radiation  

Although it is more than two years since a major earthquake and devastating tsunami damaged the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, Dr Cuttler reveals that there is
still not a single case of radiation illness or death occurred as a result.
But, you ask, weren't there deaths?
Precautionary Deaths Approximately 160,000 people evacuated the area around the Fukushima nuclear power plant shortly after it was damaged by the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami. An evacuation order forced 70,000 people to leave the area, while an additional 90,000 left voluntarily and returned soon afterward. The 70,000 forced evacuees are now just beginning to return to their homes.
Approximately 1,600 people died in the Fukushima evacuation process. This is more people than died in the Fukushima area from the earthquake and tsunami. 
So, although there is still not a single case of radiation illness or death, Dr Helen Caldicott stirs up alarm:
“We’re talking about a disaster of unbound proportions” from Fukushima Daiichi — 2.5 to 3 million deaths a possibility (Link)


  1. We would not see the effect for 10-15 years. Everyone knows that. Cancer rates will certainly increase from this disaster. Are they kidding themselves?

    1. Or alternatively, are the alarmists kidding themselves or at least trying to kid the misinformed?
