Beyond Nuclear - Radiation & Health - Cancer panel to issue final report

The US Nuclear Regulatory Commission requested that the National Academy of Sciences investigate the cancer risks around NRC licensed facilities. NAS started work in September, 2010, determining that this charge would be best handled by two phases of investigation with a report to follow each phase. Phase one, examining what methods would best be used for such a health assessment, will issue a report with recommendations in February 2012. Subsequent to this final report, there will be a two month public comment period. However, before the February report is released, NAS is encouraging continued public comments at If comments are made before the February report issue, there is a better chance that they may be considered in writing the report. Beyond Nuclear has provided the panel with formal written comments, highlighting vulnerability of children and our gene pool to radiation damage. We encourage you to read our comments and submit your own. For more information on the study background, timeline, or to view past public meetings, click here >

Hot radioactive particles from Fukushima found in the US, new study shows; children's shoes in Japan contaminated with cesium

Scientist Marco Kaltofen of Worchester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) confirmed at a presentation on Monday that hot radioactive particles from the Fukushima-Daiichi reactor accidents in Japan have been found in the US. In a presentation of his analysis at the annual meeting of the American Public Health Association (APHA), Kaltofen said that his research also found airborne and ground contamination in northern Japan...

      well, maybe... what's your point? - do you want to suggest that they allow comments, or that the NRC should? - i am sure the BN's fact sheet is well supported by science or they wouldn't have posted it. i would suggest contacting them if you are interested in supporting data. otherwise, the comment seems to be simple troll manure. (note that "thorium" does not otherwise appear on this page.)
