When Tim Berners-Lee and others created the architectural foundations of the world wide web, they did so with the vision of openness, idea sharing, and trust. Human nature has a way of making things more complicated, of course.

Thank you Luis and Echonetdaily for covering the Helen Caldicott event and for your excellent report ‘Our Uranium is Killing the Planet’.

In reply to the Martin Nicholson’s letter of last week: Dr Caldicott is more than just a retired pediatrician; she is one of the world’s foremost authorities on the medical effects of radiation and is internationally recognised and acclaimed as such. This is why she has been invited to speak at an international symposium of doctors in New York and why she has been given permission to address the Japanese parliament. Her work is supported by Dr Yuri Hiranuma, medical director of the FRCSR, the institute of Fukushima Radioactive Contamination Research in Japan.

 Space allowing I would quote some of Helen’s report titled ‘The Nuclear Sacrifice of Our Children’; anyone wanting to know the facts is welcome to email me for a copy.

To date the project to stabilise building number four at Fukushima is not going well. Until this is achieved, not only Japan but the whole planet stands on very shaky ground.

The death count for Chernobyl might not be recognised by the WHO but there are many other reputable organisations such as the ISIS that confirm the one million figure. Recently the WHO has been implicated in other cover-ups and research on Codex Alimentarius shows the WHO supporting the war against natural health remedies and kowtowing to Monsanto.
