      This is the greatest public health hazard the world has ever witnessed, apart from the threat every day of nuclear war.

Indonesia is a semi-annual journal devoted to the timely study of Indonesia’s culture, history, government, economy, and society. It features original scholarly articles, interviews, translations, and book reviews.

    Fukushima accident, also called Fukushima nuclear accident or Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident, accident in at the Fukushima Daiichi (“Number One”) plant in northern Japan, the second worst nuclear accident in the history of nuclear power generation. The site is on Japan’s Pacific coast, in northeastern Fukushima prefecture about km (60 miles) south of Sendai. After the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident in March , residents perceived a radiation exposure risk. To address the concerns about radiation exposure and the subsequent effects on their health, we developed the gatekeeper training program for radiation health anxiety and mental health issues.

      When Russian missiles appeared in Cuba in , and the world came within minutes of nuclear war, America redoubled its efforts toward nuclear deterrence. From to , our nuclear arsenal tripled, and Hanford’s reactors hummed day and night. First nuclear reactor to go back online since Japan disaster met with protests. It chimes with the wider drift away from globalization towards a more regional approach to trade. Read more; that antifa had moved to “the book burning phase.” Matthew Rosenberg and Julian E. Barnes write that “the truth was far more mundane.

As the nation struggled to recover from a record breaking magnitude 9 earthquake and a tsunami that was as high as thirty-eight meters in some places, news trickled out that Fukushima had experienced meltdowns in three reactors. These tragic catastrophes claimed s.

According to anti-nuclear activist Harvey Wasserman, Japan's quake fallout may cause nuclear disaster, saying: "This is a very serious situation. If the cooling system fails (apparently it has at two or more plants), the super-heated radioactive fuel rods will melt, and (if so) you could conceivably have an explosion," that, in fact, occurred.

A natural disaster is a major adverse event resulting from natural processes of the earth. These lists are of disasters caused by forces of nature. List of avalanches. For years, Helen Caldicott warned it's coming. In her book, "Nuclear Madness," she said: "As a physician, I contend that nuclear technology threatens life on our planet with extinction.

Disaster: several definitions are frequently given to disaster. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines a disaster as “a sudden ecological phenomenon of sufficient magnitude to require external assistance”.

It is also defined as any event, typically occurring suddenly, that causes damage, ecological disruption, loss of human. "The unleashed power of the atom has changed everything, save our modes of thinking, and thus we drift toward unparalleled disaster." — Scientist Albert Einstein "Let us take the advice to walk the little way where we overwhelm those we do not like with good deeds, kindness, and loving service." — Anti-nuclear activist John Dear.

Lawrence S. Wittner. Thirty years ago, Randall Forsberg, a young defense and disarmament researcher, launched the Nuclear Weapons Freeze Campaign.

Designed to stop the drift toward nuclear war through a U.S.-Soviet agreement to stop the testing, production, and deployment of nuclear weapons, the freeze campaign escalated into a mass movement that swept across. Einstein said, "The splitting of the atom changed everything save man's mode of thinking; thus we drift towards unparalleled catastrophe." He also said, "Nuclear power is a hell of a way to boil.

The Great East Japan Earthquake and subsequent nuclear power plant accident had serious and long-term effects on the mental health condition of people living in Fukushima.

1 The explosions at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant were totally unexpected, even for many people living near the plant. They confronted an extraordinary situation and fell into.

Conversely, in the MR-PS12 stem cell line, whose mtDNA is composed of haplotype L3 from the cytoplasm donor and haplotype H1 from the nuclear genome donor, the mtDNA heteroplasmy of the mtDNA H1 haplotype increased after genome transfer, from % at derivation to % at passage 36 (mtDNA stochastic drift).

In addition, clonal expansion from. Abstract — After an introduction on the discovery of nuclear fission in the s and the applications of this then unknown new energy source, the possible consequences of nuclear accidents and disasters on man and the environment are discussed.

The paper focusses in particular on the question how to avoid such accidents, and how their impact on human health. bation, or a drift towards an accident (Dekker ; Woods a; Woods et al. ). One such attempt is of course the so-called Swiss Cheese model (Reason ), and has, like Turner, explained how things can go wrong on the basis of upstream deficiencies like inadequate supervision and ineffective leadership.In the book, Refugee Health, the medical relief organization Doctors Without Borders suggested 10 top priorities in disaster response.

Of the top five, only one—measles vaccination—is a health-specific intervention, and its importance might have diminished since publication of that book as more countries have achieved high measles vaccine.

Apart from the threat of nuclear waste erupting into flames in the near future, there are also two nuclear reactors inside the United States that have been leaking for months.
