La directive européenne sur la radioactivité dans l’eau potable exclut le thorium et le décret d’application français exclut encore des émetteurs alpha supplémentaires

1) Aucune législation sur l’eau minérale – voir ci dessous réponse du centre d’information de la Commission européenne. 2) évidemment les chaînes U235 et Th232 ont été passées sous silence – la chaîne Th232 est presque aussi significative que la chaîne U238, ce qui revient à supprimer la moitié des émetteurs alpha. 3) La “dose … Continue reading La directive européenne sur la radioactivité dans l’eau potable exclut le thorium et le décret d’application français exclut encore des émetteurs alpha supplémentaires

Neuromuscular diseases for which a direct link with alpha radioactivity levels appears : Guillain Barré, myasthenia gravis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, perhaps inclusion body myositis

Internal contamination (radon, U and Th in tap water, DU dust, etc) is the issue. I have allowed myself to use data provided by Jaydeep M. Bhatt in Epidemiology of neuromuscular diseases (Neurol Clin 34 (2016) 999–1021). A quick comparison with natural radioactivity levels of countries where incidence and prevalence was surveyed for these three … Continue reading Neuromuscular diseases for which a direct link with alpha radioactivity levels appears : Guillain Barré, myasthenia gravis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, perhaps inclusion body myositis

Birth defects in Syria / malformations congénitales en Syrie

This is a very short sample of birth defects happening in Syria and in Syrian refugees, from depleted uranium dust exposure. It is of course difficult to know what is happening in the country so we have access to a limited number of cases, but these particularly dire ones demonstrate the gravity of the contamination … Continue reading Birth defects in Syria / malformations congénitales en Syrie
