IPPNW has disputed the accuracy of the new UNSCEAR report on the Fukushima disaster. We reviewed the report last year by UNSCEAR and found a similar string of bias, inaccuracies and purposeful manipulation of data to achieve a desired outcome.
IPPNW found many issues in this year’s UNSCEAR report including:
UNSCEAR uses the fact that cancer can not be traced back to an origin to explain away any potential cancers from the Fukushima disaster. This tactic is well known among the tobacco and asbestos industries.
The source of the data used by UNSCEAR is primarily the IAEA, TEPCO and the Japanese government. Anyone who has been following events in Fukushima knows none of these sources are considered unbiased or accurate. Much dispute about the validity of the data from these entities exists. All of the data from other sources is ignored by UNSCEAR.
IPPNW also points out that the wide disparity in the actual incidence of thyroid nodules and cancers in Fukushima is so divergent from the data from other areas that they can not excuse the findings as “screening effect”.
