Regarding the Nov. 27 Kyodo news brief “Fukushima cancer risk said low“: I smell a big fat rat. First, why would anyone say this? Either it is true, in which case there’s no problem, or it is false, and hey, there is always a reason people say things.

With no evidence, I would hazard a guess that it is false and, with that in mind, can only wonder why an (international organization) would stick its neck out to state that everything is fine.

What is the (World Health Organization’s) agenda?
