Blood was dripping down his hand. He never broke character. Following this, the Soviet Government requested the International Atomic Energy Agency IAEA to coordinate an international experts' assessment of the Chernobyl accident's radiological, environmental and health consequences.
Between March and June , a total of 50 field missions were conducted by experts from 25 countries, seven organizations, and 11 laboratories. In the absence of pre data, they compared a control population known to not have been affected by the disaster with those exposed to radiation. Significant health disorders were evident in both control and exposed groups, but none were related to radiation.
The health effects, including deaths, were thoroughly documented by the Chernobyl Forum September , in Vienna in their resultant report. As summarized by Dr. These last 9 are an inexcusable tragedy since they were totally avoidable with warning from the Soviet government which they intentionally failed to do in time , and appropriate administration of potassium iodide prior to the plume reaching that area, also failed by the Soviets. In addition, almost a thousand emergency workers thrown into the fire in the first days of the accident by the Soviets received high doses of radiation, and about 50 died from cancer and other health issues.
According to Mikhail Balonov, Secretary of Science at the International Atomic Energy Agency, the , recovery and operations workers that have worked at Chernobyl since the accident, and the 5 million residents of the contaminated areas in the Ukraine, Belarus and Russia, received minor doses comparable to natural background radiation.
There have been no observable radiation-induced health effects in these people. And certainly none have occurred in areas outside these regions which received even less dose. Immediately after the accident, the ultra-conservative regulatory-based Linear No-Threshold LNT dose hypothesis was used to guesstimate that about 4, deaths should eventually occur by radiation from Chernobyl, but these still have not been observed. The United Nations has since warned that using the LNT model to calculate such deaths is an incorrect use of this model , and should be avoided.
The irony is that this number of 4, deaths was taken by the media as being conservative, when it was truly super-liberal, and was doubled and tripled over and over, until some people started putting out numbers closer to a million, a favorite number of anti-nuclear ideologues. However, as with Fukushima, the most significant health and economic problems came from the perceived severity of the accident and the fear spread through misunderstanding of radiation effects and the sometimes unethical exploitation of the refugees and of the issue of radiation safety.
