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.
