Fukushima’s doses tallied

  title={Fukushima’s doses tallied},
  author={Geoff Brumfiel},
Few people will develop cancer as a consequence of being exposed to the radioactive material that spewed from Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant last year — and those who do will never know for sure what caused their disease. These conclusions are based on two comprehensive, independent assessments of the radiation doses received by Japanese citizens, as well as by the thousands of workers who battled to bring the shattered nuclear reactors under control. 
Individual Doses to the Public after the Fukushima Nuclear Accident
Background: International organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR) reported public exposureExpand
Radiation hazards in children – Lessons from Chernobyl, Three Mile Island and Fukushima
This review focuses on what happened after the accidents at the Three Mile Island nuclear power station in 1979 and the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in 1986, in terms of the effects of these incidents on health, and proposes that research on the health effects of low level radiation should be prioritized.

Worldwide health effects of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident
This study quantifies worldwide health effects of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident on 11 March 2011. Effects are quantified with a 3-D global atmospheric model driven by emission estimates andExpand
Nuclear denial: From Hiroshima to Fukushima
Governments and the nuclear power industry have a strong interest in playing down the harmful effects of radiation from atomic weapons and nuclear power plants. Over the years, some scientists haveExpand
Fukushima and the Future of Radiation Research
Personal observations from participation in the response to this incident and projections as to how this major radiological incident might impact the future of the Radiation Research Society, and the important positive contributions radiation sciences can make to society in general are presented.

State of Fukushima nuclear fuel debris tracked by Cs137 in cooling water.
It is found that the release rate of (137)Cs has been constant for 2 years at about 1.8% of the inventory per year indicating ongoing dissolution of the fuel debris. Expand

The Fukushima Health Management Survey: estimation of external doses to residents in Fukushima Prefecture
The Fukushima Health Management Survey (including the Basic Survey for external dose estimation and four detailed surveys) was launched after the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant accident, and doses for some individuals who did not follow typical scenarios could be revealed. Expand
Risk assessment of radioisotope contamination for aquatic living resources in and around Japan
The overall contamination risk for aquatic food items is very low and the necessity of refining data collection plans to reduce detection limits in the future is suggested. Expand
Introduction to the 2013 Edition: How Did They Survive?
“They are alive. The workers know that they didn’t die. But they don’t know how they survived.” These words were spoken to me by a biochemist in Kiev, Ukraine, in 1996, a decade after the nuclearExpand
