“A baby that has no head is a baby that has no head.”

Radiation and Birth Deformities – ‘a link is not proof’ in the case of nuclear – but links to health damage in the case of smoking, asbestos exposure etc is proof. The Nuclear Lobby has had an easy ride for far too long. Good article this…


“A baby that has no head is a baby that has no head.” –   a different approach to the question of radiation and birth deformities,   How do you find out if low levels of  ionising radiation cause birth defects and genetic abnormalities?  by Noel Wauchope,  23/10/12

The usual approach is to look at causes – at radiation as a cause. Scientists measure radiation levels in an area, and study or predict health results.  Studies on small animal life in Chernobyl and Fukushima, have indicated genetic damage due to radiation.

Many reports have described birth defects linking them to radiation affected areas – Fallujah in Iraq, Chernobyl  2010 Paul Zimmerman ,  2009 Video and article

But, as the nuclear lobby loves to remind us  – link is not  a proof  And  the World Health Organisation has remained silent on these matters. Why? Since 1959, an agreement signed…

the sea cannot be depleted. Please listen

Dear Friends, I was sent a link today to this.  It brought tears to my eyes.   Tears for the poignancy of the combination of spoken word, sound and subject that is pretty much taboo.  The tears were brought too by the recognition of what we at Radiation Free Lakeland have been unequivocally shouting out …

Easter Greetings!

Keep Cumbrian Coal in the Hole

Black Guillemot – St Bees is the last nesting place in England!

Dear Friends,

Easter Greetings!  Many thanks to all who have been sharing, talking and campaigning to stop the first deep coal mine in the UK for 30 years.

The planning decision date has been cancelled 3 times now. The new date for the planning meeting in Kendal is 18th April.

We continue to campaign against this plan with letters to press and actions on the streets.

Opposition letters continue to be sent to Cumbria County Council including from Scientists for Global Responsibility who have said: ”

  • ..combustion of the coal from this mine will lead to emissions of about 8.3 million tonnes of CO2 each year during the main production phase. This is about the same as the annual emissions of about 900,000 British citizens. However, because it is planned to export much of the coal, these emissions will appear…
