(Build the America you want to live in at your address, and keep looking up.-Sarah Palin)
"However, WHO now considers the psychological impact to be at least as detrimental as the physical. Being depressed and unmotivated, pursuing an unhealthy lifestyle and clinging to a victim mind-set, it says, has proved to be the worst fall-out for the 'Chernobylites. Other organisations, such as Greenpeace, contend that Chernobyl is responsible for tens of thousands of illnesses and deaths, even though these cannot yet be scientifically linked to the accident."
I wonder how a psychological finding like above would apply to conservatives who may be subject to long-term subjugation in Obama's Marxist America?

('Tis time to fear when tyrants seem to kiss.)
The take away is that the plume has produced many thyroid cancer cases. These were avoidable, since you have to ingest dairy products, which could have been tested. But this is a poverty stricken area. The Russian victims said they fear starvation more than radiation. They still die from stroke primarily, as they have in the past.

Alexander Anisimov, who spent his career studying the self-settler community, claimed that the women who returned to their ancestral homes in the zone outlived those who left by a decade.
There is a much-challenged concept called "radiation hormesis," in which low doses of radiation actually have a tonic and health-promoting effect. This is as opposed to the "no safe dose of radiation" standard model.
I'm not a radiation scientist, but from what I've read the evidence points toward the hormesis group being closer to the truth.
Similar effects have been claimed for many toxins and pollutants.
Which is not to say that the levels of radiation at issue here fall into the hormesis range.
