MAPW media release: Medical specialists urge full information on Japan health risks, 17 March 2011

This MAPW media release laments the lack of accurate information about the continuing nuclear crisis in Japan with the Australian government advising its citizens to evacuate 80 km from Fukushima, after reassurances the previous day that the 30km Japanese evacuation zone was adequate. MAPW notes that the lack of detailed data has already led to mischievous claims from industry representatives that people are at no risk. Equally disturbing has been the trend in some official statements trivialising the risks associated with lower level exposures.
