Day 2 - Morning session on comprehensive research regarding effects and the levels of radiation exposure that protect industry but not the public and especially the fetus. Research on mutations and fetal death from contaminated food and cultural practice. Explanation of the assumptions built into the Hiroshima Long Term Survivors Study and the resultant underestimation of harm to humans. Analysis of the existential threat to the United States from the highly radioactive waste fuel stored in lightly constructed sheds at all reactor sites in the U.S. The potential for runaway fire due to coolant loss or an explosion event due to storage density is proportional to the extent that safety measures are suppressed for to increase corporate profits.
