25th Anniversary of Chernobyl Nuclear Power Accident

NHK once broadcast good Chernobyl-focused documentary films on the 10th and 20th anniversary.  We really hoped it would do the same or at least put these old videos on the air so that the vast still-ignorant victims in Fukushima (and Tokyo Metropolitan areas with hotspot zones) could see what could happen years later especially to young children.  NHK instead completely ignored the anniversary, and came to bring silly non-timely topics to the high viewership hours.

Here is video's from the US (maybe minor?) that we shared on the web instead.  I embedded the original version in my Japanese blog.  This was recorded six days before the 311 tragedy in Japan.  Dr Janet Sherman talks to Mr Karl Grossman on Enviro Close-up.

Chernobyl: A Million Casualties

A million people have died so far as a result of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear plant accident, explains Janette Sherman, M.D., toxicologist and contributing editor of the book Chernobyl: Consequences of the Catastrophe for People and the Environment. Published by the New York Academy of Sciences, the book, authored by Dr. Alexey Yablokov, Dr. Vassily Nesterenko and Dr. Alexey Nesterenko, examined medical records now available--which expose as a lie the claim of the International Atomic Energy Commission that perhaps 4,000 people may die as a result of Chernobyl.

We learned that even outside Japan, the scientists who knew the truth had to spend as long as 25 years to publicize the these facts of Chernobyl due to the media coverups, and the most world population had believed the deception - several digits smaller number of victims and the intrinsic issues of nuclear power generation itself.

This video made us aware of the fact that when they say "experts" most of them appearing on the media are physical or chemical academics or engineers, and not biologists or medical doctors despite the fact that there have been real doctors who took care of real Hibakusha's (the radiation-exposed).

How can the people who didn't study medicine or biology, let alone genomics, talk about the effects of radiation to human bodies??
