WHO: Japan ’s Fukushima nuclear leak causes increased risk of cancer in nearby residents

The World Health Organization issued a report on the 28th that the March 2011 earthquake in Japan and the resulting Fukushima nuclear leakage accident are expected to increase the incidence of cancer among special populations living in the areas most affected by nuclear radiation, emergency rescue personnel at nuclear power plants, etc. risk.

The health risk assessment report released by the World Health Organization pointed out that for some people living in the areas with the most serious radiation pollution, the risk of cancer will increase. For example, the irradiated baby boy's risk of leukemia will increase by about 7% during his lifetime, the irradiated baby girl's risk of all solid tumors will increase by about 4%, the risk of breast cancer will increase by about 6%, and the thyroid The risk of cancer can increase up to 70%. Normally, the baseline risk of thyroid cancer in women's life is 0.75%, while the risk value of exposed baby girls is 0.5 percentage points higher than the baseline.

The report pointed out that for emergency rescue personnel of the Fukushima nuclear power plant, about one-third of people will increase the risk of cancer. In other parts of Japan and other countries outside of the most irradiated areas, the risk is expected to be very low, and no cancer risk above the baseline level is observed.

The WHO stated that it is necessary to carry out long-term health monitoring of high-risk groups and provide necessary follow-up medical and support services. In addition, the environment should be continuously monitored, especially the food and water supply, to reduce possible future radiation exposure.

On March 11, 2011, a major earthquake and tsunami in Japan caused the death and disappearance of 19,000 people, leading to a nuclear material leakage accident at the Tokyo Electric Power Company's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, which triggered external concerns that radiation may cause health risks. Therefore, the World Health Organization sent an international team of experts to assess the health risks of people in Fukushima Prefecture, other parts of Japan and other parts of the world, and emergency rescue personnel of nuclear power plants that may be exposed to radiation.
