Seventeen international scientists and experts have written to the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon urging international action on Fukushima crisis.
“We write to you in urgency. The situation around the world at radioactively contaminated sites is not good, and it is clear that the situation at the Fukushima Daiichi reactor site is progressively deteriorating, not stabilizing.”

Dr. Helen Caldicott, world-mover, shaker, anti-nuke leader, joins our community at First Churches to discuss the ongoing dangers of the radiation from Fukushima (and other nuclear facilities).
An engaging, spirited speaker, she begs each of us to find a way to get the message out about the long term health effects we all share from nuclear power.

This presentation was made at the one day symposium on “The Medical Implications of Fukushima” held at the International House of Japan in Roppongi, Tokyo, on Sunday, July 7, 2013. The presentation was sponsored by the Japan office of the Helen Caldicott Foundation.
Below is the entire presentation, which provides critical information for understanding the current status of the nuclear reactors in Fukushima, the health effects of different types of radiation and the radioactive elements released from the Fukushima reactors.
On 2 April 2012, Dr. Caldicott gave a speech in New York to the Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, and engaged in a discussion with attendees.

After four-and-half-years and 197 programs, If You Love This Planet ended with the broadcast of its last new episode on the week ending December 28, 2012.
I believe we have made a valuable contribution to the public debate on any number of important issues over the years. I have thoroughly enjoyed interviewing the most interesting and highly informed people on a variety of topics relevant to planetary and individual survival. A new book of 25 of the interviews called Loving This Planet may interest you.

“The only way evil flourishes is for good people to do nothing,” Dr. Helen Caldicott quoted Edmund Burke when speaking to audiences at the Royal University Hospital and Third Avenue United Church, Saskatoon [ Saskatchewan, Canada ], on Nov. 1st.
Following an opening prayer by Elders Maria and Walter Linklater, Elder Pat Campbell from Patuanak, Sask., spoke about the devastating effects the uranium mining industry is having on the people, animals and environment in northern communities.

I write to reply to the allegations made about me in John Gormley’s column, More private liquor stores, less Caldicott (SP, Nov. 2).
First, it is important for me to stress that the aboriginal people in Northern Saskatchewan are being exploited by the uranium and nuclear power industry, as they have routinely been in the United States and Australia.
People who have lived benignly with nature for tens of thousands of years have been forced to allow mining companies to extract uranium from beneath their feet and to work in the mines.
Dr. Caldicott will undertake a Lecture Tour in Japan November 17-25, 2012 under the title “What You Must Know About Radiation Exposure”.
More details about dates and venues will be provided when they are confirmed.
In a related announcement, Fukushima Radioactive Contamination Symptoms Research (FRCSR) has been authorized to officially represent Dr. Helen Caldicott in Japan.
Please contact Dr. Yuri Hiranuma, FRCSR Medical Information Director, at email@example.com for any media or infrormation requests related to Japan.
