If you understand statistics…you will be very comfortable with nuclear”

If a red hot poker were to be stuck in Prof Cox’s eye, then using the same statistical collective dose method that the nuclear industry uses he should be very comfortable with the heat over the whole of his body.

In real life radioactive isotopes bind to specific organs , caesium to the heart muscle, radioactive iodine to the thyroid, strontium to the bone etc

There are moves to further reduce measurement of  even the flawed ‘collective dose’ as a result of the increased exposure to radioactive fallout.

 

One thought on “Professor Brian Cox Taking the Sellafield Lollypop

  1. It’s government policy that communities exposed to nuclear radiation air pollution must tolerate the acknowledged ‘health detriment’ which they claim is justified by the (alleged) benefits of nuclear power. Somerset coastal communities exposed to the Hinkley Point nuclear site have suffered 50 years of premature sudden deaths, cancers, brain tumours, strokes and heart attacks. Perinatal mortality has doubled since decommissioning and waste began in 2006. Heritable genetic mutations have been widespread since 1966. Evidence that there is no safe dose level of nuclear radiation exposure is available to all governments. When will the UK nuclear regulators enforce a zero emissions policy on all 30 UK nuclear sites???
