Tc 99m Becomes Tc 99 Which Stays Radioactive in Environment for Millions of Years – Medical and Non-Medical Production Should Be Banned – Comment Deadline 30 December 2016

Britain was concerned enough about the radiation in the body that it removed organs, causing a scandal:
“25 Although Dr Schofield, Dr Lawson or another member of staff from Sellafield commonly attended the post mortem, the organs were actually removed from the body in each case by the pathologist or by a mortuary technician. The analytical process was destructive…” “The Redfern Inquiry into human tissue analysis in UK nuclear facilities Volume 2: Summary Address of the Honourable the House of Commons dated 16 November 2010 for The Redfern Inquiry into human tissue
analysis in UK nuclear facilities Volume 1: Report Ordered by the House of Commons to be printed 16 November 2010”

Proponents of medical radioisotopes, and the nuclear industry, continue to hide – through ignorance or malice – the fact that some so-called short-lived radioisotopes, such as Technetium 99m degrade to insanely long-lived radionuclides. Even many anti-nuclear activists fall into this trap. Technetium 99m becomes Technetium 99 which remains radioactive, and hence lethal, for over 3 million years! Thus, there can be no legitimate justification for its use either in nuclear medicine or as discharges from nuclear reactors. Therefore, the US should emphatically not construct a facility for the production of this lethal crap, i.e. “Moly Cow”. And, they should cease to use and import it. Oppose here: “Construction Permit Application for the Northwest Medical Isotopes, LLC, Medical Radioisotope Production Facility. A Notice by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission on 11/09/2016 Comment against it before the 30th of December 2016. It’s easy and can be anonymous: https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2016/11/09/2016-27058/construction-permit-application-for-the-northwest-medical-isotopes-llc-medical-radioisotope
