As part of a historic effort to learn more about the long-term effects of radiation, doctors in Torrance are working with local survivors of the atomic bombings of Japan in World War II.
The survivors, who now live in Southern California, will be examined by Japanese and American doctors Saturday at Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center in Torrance.
Since the 1970s, theyve been taking part in a long-term study on radiation effects.
One survivor, 86-year-old Kaz Suyeishi....is one of about 400 atomic bombing survivors in the U.S. taking part in historic research into the long-term effects of nuclear blasts.

That they are still alive does not really fit the narrative.
Maybe that particular study, but there's a documentary on the post-WWII studies on the Japanese that were in/near the blast.
One woman, a child at the time, told of being naked each session, eventually yearly, in front of an audience of doctors. It became embarrassing for her as she matured...
But, it's CBS/AP. Can't expect facts, historical or otherwise, let alone reality, from them.
I suspect their hearing is somewhat attenuated as well.
They have a cute earring?
And how about a study of the long-term effects of post traumatic stress on some survivors of The Bataan Death March or the “Comfort Women’’, the Asian women the Japs forced to be prostitutes, you know, for ‘’balance’’ and in the interest of history?
I recall a study that showed that at a certain distance from ground zero there was an actual increase in life expectancy. This may be a study to collaborate that.
I’m agnostic as to whether hormesis actually works, but I think the notion is fascinating.
Nice link, thanks!
