On radiation and health, World Health Organisation toes the nuclear lobby’s line
Margaret Chan VERSUS World Health Organisation http://tekknorg.wordpress com/2012/05/27/margaret-chan-versus-world-health-organisation/
May 27, 2012 by Mikkai “……THE AGREEMENT WHA 12 – 40 between IAEA and WHO: http://independentwho.org/en/who-and-aiea-aggreement/ QUOTE:
“Since the signing of this agreement, WHO has shown no autonomy of action towards achieving its stated objectives in the field of radiation protection.
On the contrary it has shown its capacity for misinforming the public about the health consequences of radioactive contamination caused by the civil and military nuclear industries.
WHO waited five years before visiting those territories that had been heavily contaminated by the accident at Chernobyl. They gave no instructions for evacuation or for the provision of clean food to the affected populations.
WHO has kept hidden the health consequences of this catastrophe, especially by not publishing the proceedings of the 1995 and 2001 conferences.
WHO still estimates the number of deaths caused by Chernobyl at less than fifty and attributes the health problems of populations of Belarus, Ukraine and Russia to fear of radiation.
WHO does not recognise the validity of the work published in 2009 by the Academy of Sciences of New York which estimates the number of deaths caused by Chernobyl to be nearly one million.
With Fukushima, WHO has the same attitude as for Chernobyl.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) does not respect its constitution which lays down the following principle:
“Informed opinion and active cooperation from the public are of paramount importance for improving the health of people …”
In the first chapter, Article 1:
“The goal of the World Health Organization shall be the attainment by all peoples of the highest possible level of health.”
In chapter 2 – FUNCTIONS of WHO:
a) to act as the directing and co-ordinating Authority on International Health Work.”
“The WHO experts had also rejected any relation between radiation and the significant increase in the morbidity in many somatic diseases established in the affected areas of Belarus, Russia and the Ukraine soon after the accident. / the international radiation community practically played a role of an advocate of the USSR government that tried to play down the consequences of this accident from the very beginning.”http://www.rri.kyoto-u.ac.jp/NSRG/reports/1998/kr-21/Malko96-1.html. http://tekknorg.wordpress.com/2012/05/27/margaret-chan-versus-world-health-organisation/
