Doctors throughout the devistated region are warning of a larger public health problem due to radiation exposure. Doctors in Chiba are seeing persistant nosebleeds and other symptoms they think are connected to radiation exposure.
The experts from medical and academic facilities warned that raising radiation limits would only increase the exposures and risks to the public. There has also been an over reliance by the Japanese government on ICRP radiation standards. The ICRP’s standards have been extensively criticized for being out of line with other standards and current research. The ICRP is also heavily funded by agencies tasked with the promotion of nuclear power like the NRC.
Contamination has also been found in local residents urine. The people tested live 20 – 30km from the plant. Two month exposure rates were as high as 14.2 mSv. Evidence is beginning to pile up showing the inaction of the Japanese government is injuring the people outside the evacuation zone.
