Spreading the word about the growing presence of progressive Alaskans and their powerful ideas on the web
WTF???? This is terrifying!
There are other medical people and epidemiologists who are coming up with similar information, but they aren't going so far in their assertions.
The minute there was concern about the Fukushima plant, my sister's husband insisted that she and the children immediately leave Japan (where they live) and get the hell out of the Northern Hemisphere. This news is horrible.
So what is the media talking about? Sarah Palin's emails. Bachmann's wacky ideas. Newt. Come on...tell us the truth and how to protect ourselves.
Maybe a closer look at the data used by Sherman and Mangano would help:http://nuclearpoweryesplease.org/blog/2011/06/17/shame-on-you-janette-sherman-and-joseph-mangano/
Lanzelot,Thanks for contributing information to this article. Your three articles on Mangano, particularly on the ways he has extrapolated his data are interesting, but by themselves don't constitute peer review. I hope that his work and the work of others on this does get close scrutiny, and that we have a much wider network of reliable informants submitting peer reviewable data. As it is, there are far too few.Your claim that Fukushima "has killed nobody" may be a bit hasty, to say the least.
Philip,Peer review? I did the same exercise as Mangano and Sherman, i.e. looked up the original data, but I included a few more weeks, that's all. I am quite surprised that not more people have scrutinized their statements. For all that is good, I hope that their "study" never makes it to any peer reviewed journal, that would be a scientific low point. And I hope that Sherman is not a practicing M.D. anymore, what kind of scaremongering stories is she feeding her patients with?In which entry did I say that Fukushima has not killed anybody? We are several people in the NPYP network. Anyhow, so far it is correct when it comes to radiation-related damage. But I agree with you that it may change. We are learning new things all the time, and there may be some more nasty surprises along the road.
Scientific America debunks Sherman/Mangano:http://www.scientificamerican.com/blog/post.cfm?id=are-babies-dying-in-the-pacific-nor-2011-06-21Because we all know how reposting a FOX News investigative piece by their official experts will only mean good, informed science.
