There are bogeymen that we do not speak of, but let us speak of them now.

Indeed, Strontium is truly the Bogeyman.      The “hit energy” is .546MeV Beta, which if that is not bad enough, the daughter radionuclide of that reaction is Yttrium Y90 with a short half life of 2.5 days….so you get a quick and predictable secondary blast of Beta but this time at a much higher energy at 2.2 MeV.   This is THE HIGHEST FORCE punch of any of the common radionuclides.   Think Mohammed Ali.

Ouch, so first you get sucker punched by the Zombie Bogeyman, then in your weakened state, your get a point blank massive blow from a MMA fighter.

Strontium goes right into the bone and stays there, and of course the blood is produced in the bones, and then you get leukemia, which is…

The Ergen Report, 1967 – ECCS, Meltdown studies.

Paul Langley's Nuclear History Blog

The Ergen Report was published in 1967, the year construction of the Fukushima Diiachi Nuclear Power Plant complex commenced.

The report represents the state of the art in meltdown prevention and meltdown process understanding at that time.

What, if anything, does this report say which may explain why the Fukushima Diiachi NPP complex was built where it was, with the technology included in its design?

Risk in the USA

Paul Langley's Nuclear History Blog

From an American friend:

“….As for risk, I’ve been asked that question too. I think the real answer is here:

http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/databriefs/db88.htm

This is US government data, from the National Vital Statistics Survey.

Look at Figure 1. See that little bump in 1979-80? That’s tens of thousands of people who died in my home state of Pennsylvania and New York, as a result of the disaster at Three Mile Island. I think that’s what the risk is – you and your loved ones dying a little earlier than you otherwise would (just as importantly, in my opinion: being less healthy and less vigorous in the meantime).

It’s an extra-yummy bonus that you’ll have to spend the rest of your life listening to the authorities say that no one was harmed, when you can look at a graph and see that claim is obviously bullshit.”

end quote.

In regard to the earlier…
