Regarding the Nov. 9 front-page Kyodo article “Exposure to low-level radiation can cause leukemia, U.S.-Ukraine study of Chernobyl cleanup workers finds“: I was amused when I read this article, especially this statement: “Of those surveyed, 87 percent had been exposed to cumulative radiation doses of below 200 millisieverts and 78 percent to below 100 millisieverts, indicating the impact on health of low-level exposure is not negligible.”
How were the radiation doses calculated? You are talking about the Chernobyl accident (1986) for crying out loud, which is a textbook example of totalitarian incompetence!
