The international radiation protection policy that led to the evacuation of more than 160,000 residents from the areas surrounding the Fukushima Daiichi NPP resulted in about 1000 nuclear disaster-related deaths. This action, taken to protect them against a hypothetical risk of cancer, was highly inappropriate. The basis for the precautionary measures is invalid; the radiation level for evacuations is not conservative. It caused enormous fear, suffering and death. In this lecture, a scientific model of the effects of radiation on health is presented and a safe level for evacuation is recommended. Radical changes to the ICRP recommendations are long overdue.

Reasons to attend

IMechE Annual Meeting, Networking, Lecture about Appropriate Radiation Level for Evacuations by Dr. Jerry M. Cuttler
