|Gamma radiation data was broadcast on Japanese weather reports during 2011.|
DR. KARL MORGAN (US health physics advisor to the British military, participant in the earlier US Bikini Islands nuclear tests): The beta could have been predominant in this fallout and yet the meters which measured only gamma radiation might have shown nothing at all.
DR. JOHN LARGE (independent nuclear consultant): If the servicemen did receive high doses—and that’s not just external doses—that’s internal doses which they carry around with them for the rest of their lives, then the damage has been done.
DR. KARL MORGAN: Looking at the particles that might be rained out… Just one of these particles could contain enough strontium 90, cesium 137 or plutonium to be the source of a malignancy that would show up maybe 10, 20, 30, 50 years later.
NARRATOR: In May 1990, the Community Health Department at Wellington School of Medicine in New Zealand published an exhaustive study into the health into the health of the New Zealand personnel [who participated in the Christmas Island nuclear tests]. By following up on 528 men who had taken part in the tests, they found five and half times the expected rate of leukemia. Their conclusion: some leukemias and possibly some other hematological cancers may have resulted from participation in this program. This confirms a previous study carried out in Britain by the National Radiological Protection Board [NRPB] into a much larger sample of British servicemen two years previously.
