Cesium Connection to Heart Disease, Japan Reports 14% Increase
- The number of deaths was up 12.5 percent (=12695 people) compared to the same month of the year before
- The number of deaths caused by Malignant Neoplasm was up 7.7% (=2066 people) from the same month of the year before
- The number caused by cardiac disease was up 14.6% (=2585 people)
According to a translation posted by Energy News, Dr.Yury Bandazhevsky of Belarus examined the people exposed to radiation and the people who had died of Chernobyl and clinically identified the association between Cesium radiation and cardiac disease.
"We can’t either determine or deny the morbidity and mortality increased only because of radiation released from Fukushima Daiichi," the scientist said, adding that a study needs to be undertaken to determine the linkage, if any, between exposure and cardiac deaths.
