Even Low-Level Radioactivity Is Damaging, Scientists Conclude

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/11/121113134224.htm

ScienceDaily (Nov. 13, 2012) — Even the very lowest levels of radiation are harmful to life, scientists have concluded in the Cambridge Philosophical Society’s journalBiological Reviews. Reporting the results of a wide-ranging analysis of 46 peer-reviewed studies published over the past 40 years, researchers from the University of South Carolina and the University of Paris-Sud found that variation in low-level, natural background radiation was found to have small, but highly statistically significant, negative effects on DNA as well as several measures of health.

Nuclear Engineer: To me it means Tepco knows about a rip in spent fuel pool liner at Fukushima Unit 3 (VIDEO)

http://enenews.com/nuclear-engineer-curing-material-unit-3-means-tepco-about-tear-rip-spent-fuel-pool-liner-video

Chris Harris, former licensed Senior Reactor Operator and engineer: One of the Tepco releases that really intrigued me was that there is something called ‘curing material’.

Now that means, to me it means they know about a tear or a rip in the spent fuel pool liner.

And they don’t come out and say — a lot of this stuff you have to read between the lines — there’s something called ‘curing material’ […] what it means to me is they tried to repair with some sort of epoxy and something that needs to cure or cure time on it before they can proceed. Which means that water’s actually being held in not by the stainless steel liner, but by the concrete structure around, that’s not really a great situation to be in.

They didn’t come flat out and say it but I’m going to stick my neck out and say if they’re trying to seal up cracks and everything else, that’s how I would do it too. And so that’s happening now, we’ll see where that comes and I’ll stay on top of it.
