Japan Nuclear Crisis, This WHO manual Prevent Cancer

As a result of nuclear crisis in Japan, the World Health Organization (WHO) has new guidelines on how exposure to minimize radiation can cause cancer. This impacts particularly on children and young adults.

He said that the measures taken by Japan so far, public health recommendations, including evacuating people within 20 km from the Fukushima nuclear power plant are met and the people were at a distance of 30 km from the plant to stay indoors.

WHO emphasizes that there is no indication of food safety hazards through food imports from Japan. However, still asking the Japanese government continue to protect food production and livestock, but not directly derived from the area around the nuclear plant. It is quoted from Health24 Reuters Health, Friday (03/18/2011).

Here is a list of WHO key recommendations:

1. The main radionuclides released Fukushima nuclear power plant is radioactive cesium and radioactive iodine. Members of the public can be directly exposed to the transfer of radionuclides in the air or through food and drink contaminated by the material.

2. If radioactive iodine is inhaled or ingested, this material will be concentrated in the thyroid and increases the risk of thyroid cancer. This risk can be reduced by taking potassium iodide pills that meet the thyroid and helps prevent the entry of radioactive materials. When administered before or immediately after exposure, this step can reduce the risk of cancer in the long term. The national authority is the proper party to determine whether a person is exposed to radioactive iodine pill pills or not.

3. If the radiation dose exceeds a certain threshold, it can cause redness of the skin, hair loss, radiation burns, and acute radiation sickness. Because of their work, rescue and plant workers can be exposed to radiation doses higher than society in general.

4. Exposure to radiation can increase cancer risk. Among the residents who survived the Japanese of Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombs were dropped in August 1945, the increased risk of leukemia many years after exposure to radiation, while other cancer risk by more than 10 years after exposure.

5. Risk of thyroid cancer caused by radiation exposure higher in children and adults.

6. If necessary, measures such as limiting the consumption of vegetables and milk produced near nuclear power plants can also reduce exposure.

7. If you enter the room after exposure to radiation, take clothes at the entrance of further infection in the home or residence to avoid. Discard clothing and shoes you wear, rather than in a plastic bag. Put the lid on plastic, then put it in a safe place, away from the living room, children and pets.

8. Bath or shower with hot water, not boiling, and soap. Tell the authorities that you may have been contaminated clothing and personal items are properly handled and disposed of according to relevant national procedures.

9. If you are advised to stay indoors, use the safest room in your home or office buildings have no windows or doors. Ventilation systems, such as heating and cooling systems should be disabled.

10. Food can be contaminated with radioactive materials resulting from a nuclear or radiological emergency. The surface of foods such as fruits and vegetables or livestock feed could be due to radioactive radioactive material that falls through the air or rainwater.

11. Over time, radioactive also spread in the food chain transfer of radionuclides through soil to plants or animals through the rivers, lakes and seas, where fish and shellfish to consume this material.

12. Radioactive can not contaminate the packaged food such as canned food or plastic. Food is protected from radioactive material is sealed over the food.

13. In the early stages of an emergency, and if safe to do so, vegetables and fodder can be protected with plastic sheeting or tarpaulins. "Bring your livestock in pastures. move the animals in the barn. good ground cover plants and crops.

14. Avoid using locally produced milk to avoid such as milk or vegetables, slaughter of animals and not fish, hunt or gather, eat mushrooms and other forest plants.
