LE MONDE | • Mis à jour le | Propos recueillis par Stéphane Foucart et Pierre Le Hir Alors que Tepco, l'opérateur de la centrale nucléaire japonaise de Fukushima, vient d' annoncer que 1 973 salariés ont été fortement irradiés à la suite de l'accident du 11 mars 2011, Nicolas Foray, radiobiologiste à l'Institut national de la santé et de la recherche médicale (Inserm) et chercheur au Centre de recherche en cancérologie de Lyon, souligne que les effets des expositions répétées à des radiations et les facteurs individuels ne sont aujourd'hui pas pris en compte dans le calcul des risques. Près de 2 000 travailleurs de Fukushima ont subi des radiations supérieures à 100 millisieverts (mSv). C'est considérable... "Le risque sanitaire du nucléaire est encore mal évalué"
Rosy Fukushima health report faulted by experts | The Japan Times Dear Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, The February 2013 report by the World Health Organization on the predicted radiation effects of the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear disaster provided some welcome news indeed. For example, Richard Wakeford of the University of Manchester wrote: “The additional risk is quite small and will probably be hidden by the noise of other (cancer) risks like people’s lifestyle choices and statistical fluctuations.” If true, the Japanese government can, for example, now confidently inform mothers living in the irradiated areas of Fukushima Prefecture and beyond that there is no need to worry about their children’s health or futures. Unfortunately, many international experts take strong exception to these optimistic findings.

The health impact of Fukushima: warnings and recommendations by Michel Fernex Following the publication of an article in the newspaper Mainichi Daily News, here is the reaction of Michel Fernex, professor emeritus at the Medical Faculty of Basel, former member of the steering committees of TDR (Tropical Diseases Research) in the WHO and President of the Association of Children of Chernobyl Belarus from 2006 to 2010. This text created quite a stir on the Internet in Japan. This goes to show how insufficient the basic information on the effects of radiation on health and the ways to fight internal contamination still is. Le blog de Fukushima , by posting the following English, Japanese and French versions of Dr. Michel Fernex's vital information and advice, wishes to make it accessible to everyone.

However, there are no studies investigating the consequences of animal scarcity on seed set, seed consumption and seed dispersal at large geographical scales. We exploited the unprecedented scarcity of pollinating bumblebees and butterflies in the vicinity of Chernobyl, Ukraine, linked to the effects of radiation on pollinator abundance, to test for effects of pollinator abundance on the ecosystem. There were considerably fewer pollinating insects in areas with high levels of radiation.
