The U.S. nuclear-power industry is questioning the “scientific basis” of the Obama administration’s decision to evacuate U.S. citizens and military personnel within a 50-mile radius of the Fukushima Daiichi power plant in Japan.
SBI Energy’s Nuclear Energy Technologies Worldwide market study examined studies on the health consequences of the Chernobyl and Three Mile Island accidents conducted by several government agencies, including the U.S. NRC, and independent organizations.
In the case of Three Mile Island, comprehensive investigations concluded that despite the serious damage to the reactor and the facility, most of the radiation was contained and any that was released had negligible effects on the physical health of people or the surrounding environment.
The effects of the Chernobyl accident have been documented in reports conducted by the World Health Organization and International Atomic Energy Agency, both of which have been challenged in assessing the significance of their observations because of the lack of reliable public health information of area residents before 1986 when the accident occurred. A multi-agency study from 2006 concluded that people in the area have suffered more from a “paralyzing fatalism due to myths and misperceptions about the threat of radiation” rather than radiation itself.
