Best of 2010: Dr. Janette Sherman on the true magnitude of the Chernobyl meltdown and the staggering health effects of nuclear radiation

Listen Now Download the show by right-clicking the link.

This week, in light of the still unfolding nuclear accident in Japan, we play for the third time Dr Caldicott’s May 17, 2010 interview with Janette D. Sherman, M.D. on the long-term effects of the 1986 Chernobyl meltdown.
Dr. Sherman translated and edited the book Chernobyl: Consequences of the Catastrophe for People and Nature, published by the New York Academy of Sciences in December 2009, which indicates that nearly one million people were killed by the Chernobyl disaster. Download and read the book for free by following the instructions on this page. Dr. Sherman has been an advisor to the National Cancer Institute on breast cancer and to the EPA on pesticides. She is a resource person and speaker for universities and health advocacy groups concerning cancer, birth defects, pesticides, toxic dumpsites, and nuclear radiation. Dr. Sherman is a specialist in internal medicine and toxicology. She has published more than 70 articles in the scientific literature and also writes for the popular press to provide information to the concerned public. She is the author of Life’s Delicate Balance: Causes and Prevention of Breast Cancer, and Chemical Exposure and Disease. As background for this interview, read the article Chernobyl Radiation Killed Nearly One Million People: New Book. And read the review by
Dr. Rosalie Bertell, Ph.D. of the Chernobyl book as well as this review in Watershed Sentinel. Read the March 22, 2011 article Chernobyl Cleanup Survivor’s Message for Japan: ‘Run Away as Quickly as Possible’. Also read the March 21, 2011 article Safeguarding Spent Fuel Pools in the United States: A drained spent fuel pool in the U.S. could lead to a catastrophic fire that would result in long-term land contamination substantially worse than what the Chernobyl accident unleashed. And check out the March 11, 2011 article An 8.9 Quake Could Have Irradiated the Entire US. Plus see the March 20, 2011 article Food and water poisoned by Japanese nuclear leak as expert warns more could die than in Chernobyl.

Editorial Reviews
From Library Journal
Writing for the general reader, Sherman, a practicing internist and the author of Chemical Exposure and Disease, explores the numerous associations between environmental pollution and breast cancer. Her investigation specifically targets hormones (natural and synthetic), radiation (including mammography), and toxic chemicals as prime historical and current cancer-causing agents. Undoubtedly, Sherman's text will prove controversial as the scientific jury is still out on exactly how to prevent cancer and precisely how and when the genetic changes that result in malignancy occur. Rachel Carson introduced the public to the links between pollution and breast cancer in her groundbreaking Silent Spring (1962). Few readers today will be unaware of pollution's public health implications, so this book best serves as a continued clarion call to clean up the environment. Overall, it is well written and provides a riveting account of corporate and institutional (mis)investments in the Cancer Wars. Recommended for public libraries.
-Gail Hendler, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Ctr. Lib., New York

Review
A strongly worded alert to the environmental causes of breast cancer, and an equally strong call for political and personal action. . . . Sherman lays the burden of escalating breast cancer rates squarely at the feet of environmental polluters. . . . [Sherman's] arguments are compelling . . . true advances in conquering cancer will only come when we 'understand the connection between the loss of personal health and worldwide pollution from toxic chemicals, ionizing radiation, and endocrine-altering chemicals.' . . . Valuable warnings for women and a passionate, well-based explanation of one particular medical viewpoint.
–Kirkus, February 15, 2000

2011-04-27 Chernobyl: Consequences of the catastrophe 25 years later, sfbayview.com, by Janette D. Sherman, M.D., and Alexey V. Yablokov, Ph.D.

Editor’s note: The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists asked Dr. Sherman, recognized worldwide for her expertise on Chernobyl, to write this article last year, then rejected it just before deadline, probably considering it too alarming. In it, she reports the widespread expectation of another nuclear power plant failure and the catastrophic consequences. Now, a few months later, the world commemorates the 25th anniversary of Chernobyl while watching the Fukushima meltdown.

"For more than 50 years, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have abided by an agreement that in essence allows them to cover each other’s back – sometimes at the expense of public health. It’s a delicate balance between cooperation and collusion.

Signed on May 28, 1959, at the 12th World Health Assembly, the agreement states:

`Whenever either organization proposes to initiate a programme or activity on a subject in which the other organization has or may have a substantial interest, the first party shall consult the other with a view to adjusting the matter by mutual agreement,” and continues: The IAEA and the WHO “recognize that they may find it necessary to apply certain limitations for the safeguarding of confidential information furnished to them. They therefore agree that nothing in this agreement shall be construed as requiring either of them to furnish such information as would, in the judgment of the other party possessing the information, interfere with the orderly conduct of its operation.'”

2011-04-26 Chernobyl Catastrophe: Democracy Now! Reports on 25th Anniversary of Worst Nuclear Accident. 1 of 2 (video) (10:58)
DemocracyNow.org -
As Japan continues to deal with its nuclear crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi power facility, memorials are being held in the Ukraine, Belarus and Russia today to mark the 25th anniversary of the nuclear meltdown at Chernobyl. On April 26, 1986, an explosion at the power plant sent a cloud of radioactive fallout into Russia, Belarus and a over a large portion of Europe. Soviet officials attempted to cover up the accident, but eventually 50,000 people living in Chernobyl's immediate surroundings had to be evacuated. A vast rural region near the plant remains uninhabitable. Until the crisis in Japan, Chernobyl was the world's only Level 7 "major accident" nuclear disaster, the most severe designation issued by the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Democracy Now! interviews Dr. Jeff Patterson, the immediate past president of Physicians for Social Responsibility, and Dr. Janette Sherman, a specialist in internal medicine and toxicology and editor of the book, "Chernobyl: Consequences of the Catastrophe for People and Nature."

"On the second anniversary of the disaster, Legasov committed suicide by hanging himself from the stairwell of his apartment. Reportedly, before his suicide, he recorded himself on audiotape, explaining many previously unknown facts about the catastrophe, and highlighting systematic secrecy that prevented previous accidents and known problems with the design of the reactor and the control rods from being communicated to plant operators as important contributory factors in the disaster. This recording was analyzed in the TV series Surviving Disaster: Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster."

THE BATTLE OF CHERNOBYL dramatically chronicles the series of harrowing efforts to stop the nuclear chain reaction and prevent a second explosion, to "liquidate" the radioactivity, and to seal off the ruined reactor under a mammoth "sarcophagus." These nerve-racking events are recounted through newly available films, videos and photos taken in and around the plant, computer animation, and interviews with participants and eyewitnesses, many of whom were exposed to radiation, including government and military leaders, scientists, workers, journalists, doctors, and Pripyat refugees.

The Enemy Within: The High Cost of Living Near Nuclear Reactors [Paperback] by Jay Gould, Jan 1996. [Editor's Note: Amazon reviewers who pan this book fail to understand at least two very important things a) radiation from nanoparticles that get breathed or otherwise absorbed into the body are a totally different animal in terms of their ill effects compared to forms of electromagnetic radiation like gamma rays that may pass through the body. Ingested radioactiveparticles adhere to cell walls where their emissions may kill or cause cancers in nearby cells. Radioactive nanoparticles also enter cells, disrupt cell function and exacerbate virtually every form of disease and dysfunction in the body and b) nuclear power plants emit over 1,300 radioactive fission products, comparable to fallout from atomic bombs .
