III) チェルノブイリのエートスが福島に来た!

Deadly Ethos in Belarus Came to Fukushima!


Fukushima Ethos (http://ethos-fukushima.blogspot.jp/) , in which residents are encouraged to live resourcefully in contaminated areas, is a dangerous program. This program seems to be solely taking an advantage of Fukushima residents who do not want to be relocated and at the same time, sacrificing health of the residents, especially children.


In ETHOS Belarus, experts advised people to voluntarily measure radiation to reduce radiation levels, and they saw some success.  Also doctors cooperated measuring residents’ internal exposure using whole body counters (WBC) and recorded some decrease in their bodies. 


However, while these figures were measured and recorded for studies of this program, the number of children with ill-health increased dramatically, sometimes more than 10 times, after years in Belarus.  As for this issue, former WHO advisor Michel Fernex explained in the following video, which I would recommend strongly. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_oKtjnh52c&feature=yout…


Also, in the following film I have been watching many times, there are a number of conscience scientists and scientists who try to cover up health hazards of radiation exposed children. The fact that WHO is in collaboration with IAEA, nuclear promoting organization is also depicted.  I would like this film to be watched by citizens in the world.

このベラルーシでのエートスは、ジャック・ロシャールという方が代表されていましたが、彼の代表を務めているCEPNはNGOということになっているものの、驚くべきことに原子力推進組織の4団体がメンバーとなっています!ロシャール氏はICRP第四委員会委員長でもあり、2011年11月には日本の内閣府で低線量リスクについてのプレゼンテーションも行っております。ロシャール氏とともに、 ロシャール氏とCEPNとIRPAで同僚である、テリー・シュナイダー氏もこの内閣府でのプレゼンテーションに参加しておりますが、なぜか内閣府のプレゼンテーションは両者のものともネット上から削除されております。

 This Belarus ETHOS project has been conducted by the director of CEPN, Mr. Jacque Lochard(http://www.oecd-nea.org/press/press-kits/lochard.pdf), the director of a NGO called CEPN.  Amazingly, the members of CEPN are from four nuclear stakeholders- EDF, IRSN, CEA, AREVA (http://www.cepn.asso.fr/spip.php?lang=en.).   Mr. Lochard was invited to give a presentation on risk of low level radiation, along with his colleague, Terry Schnider from CEPN and IRPA, at the Japanese Cabinet Office in November 2011. http://www.cas.go/jp/jp/genpatsujiko/info/twg/dai5/siryou2.pdf.  (The Cabinet Office presentation was deleted now.)


As for Mr. Jack Lochard and Mr. Terry Schneider, he reported on ETHOS Belarus (1996-1998) in Hiroshima in 2000 http://www.irpa.net/irpa10/pdf/E11.pdf.  In page 9, the report said, “A daily intake of 50 Bq (corresponding to an annual budget of about 20000 Bq and an annual dose of about 0.2 mSv) was retained as the target value of 300 Bq per day (100000 Bq and 1.3 mSv per year) as the frontier beyond which it was not recommended to go.”


Why didn’t he give warning to Japanese government when they set the food regulation as 500Bq/kg in 2011 when he visited Japan?  Also, why doesn’t he give warning to the current 100Bq/kg in Japan, which is way too high considering their recommended 50Bq/day, since adults consume more than 2kg of food/drinks. 


In addition, on page 11 of the report, “From medical point of view it will be difficult to see improvements, if any, before a few years, taking for granted that mothers will maintain their vigilance.  However, it is interesting to mention that during the three years a profound change with regard to radiological protection took place and several interesting lessons can be drawn.”  By reading this, we can see that ETHOS project does not concentrate on human health, which is supposed to be the top priority more than anything else.

また遡れば、このロシャール氏は1990-1991年の「放射線と直接関係がある障害は見られなかった。ストレスが影響を及ぼした」と結論付けたIAEA国際チェルノブイリ・プロジェクトに関わっていました。http://www-pub.iaea.org/MTCD/Publications/PDF/Pub885e_web.pdf  http://www-pub.iaea.org/MTCD/publications/PDF/Pub894_web.pdf

As a matter of fact, Mr. Lochard was involved in the IAEA Chernobyl Project in 1990-1991, which concluded that there was no direct health damages observed caused by radiation.    http://www-pub.iaea.org/MTCD/publications/PDF/Pub894_web.pdf


Mr. Jacque Lochard is an economist.  He conducted cost benefit analysis on the evaluation for relocation in this IAEA Chernobyl Project.  While the former Soviet Union scholars demanded the residents relocation above 1mSv/year, and experts from ICRP and WHO for above 5mSv/yr, Mr. Lochard insisted that it could be up to 100mSv considering the cost.  Since Mr. Lochard suggested such an unbelievable figure, scientists made the compromise to 5mSv.  In his report, there was no mentioning about children and pregnant women.


Mr. Lochard has been visiting Fukushima for promoting ETHOS Fukushima along with the Japanese counterpart, Ms. Ryoko Ando, the director of ETHOS Fukushima, another NGO.  In November 2011, before the startup of Fukushima ETHOS, Japanese government held a meeting at the Cabinet Office inviting Mr. Lochard. 


Mr. Lochard sent a letter to Ms. Ryoko Ando, the director of Fukushima ETHOS and he said, “The decision about the 20 mSv is a good news. This will allow many people to return to their home soon. “http://ethos-fukushima.blogspot.jp/2012_01_01_archive.html


However, when the Japanese government came up with 20mSv relocation standard, countless number of Japanese mothers opposed to it and gathered around the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.  However, the Japanese government totally ignored these voices.

このようにエートスプロジェクトは、ベラルーシでも福島でも同一人物が活躍し、表面的には移住できない住民のためにというNGOの顔を持ちながら、背景には、国際的な原子力推進組織、すなわち、IAEA, ICRP, UNSCEAR , IRPA , CEPN(EDF, IRSN, CEA, AREVAがメンバー)そして日本を含む原子力を持つ国が絡んでいるのです。

In this way, the same people from ETHOS project have been working both in Chernobyl and in Fukushima.  While they try to appear to be helping those who cannot relocate by themselves under NGO organization CEPN (the members are French EDF, IRSN, CEA, AREVA ), in reality, this program has been backed up by international nuclear lobby such as IAEA, ICRP, UNSCEAR , IRPA and nuclear power states including Japan!


In Chernobyl already, millions of residents and children have been suffering.  And now in Japan, health damages have been observed including the increase of death rate.  This is the world scandal of the centuries and I would like to let the citizens of the world to be aware of this horrendous facts.

It is a criminal acts of Japanese and overseas scholar to downplay the risk of radiation, which consequently lead to a number of residents’ health hazards both in Chernobyl and in Fukushima.  I believe these facts should be known to the world and eventually, those responsible should be referred to the International Criminal Court.
