Dr. Yamashita has been causing all sorts of confusion, anger and distrust since he was appointed to run the Radiation Protection program in Fukushima prefecture. The doctor made a number of disastrous public statements including his claim that 100 mSv was safe. Yamashita later reversed on this opinion. Yamashita is a research scientist who has studied the victims of Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Chernobyl, but he has no public health experience and is not a medical doctor.
Dr. Yamashita has been removed as the person in charge and reassigned to being a research advisor to the new 5 member panel appointed to run the program. No details were given about how this new panel will be appointed or by whom.
