Wertelecki: I did give lectures in Tokyo recently and I met people from a variety of Universities that attended these events. My sense is that the path followed in Japan closely resembles the path that evolved after Chernobyl. And there are more regrettables than nonregrettables.
It seems like frankly it’s difficult to understand what’s going on and what’s not going on.
From my point of view the absolute priority is women of reproductive age…
No registry of pregnant women as far as I know… very little concentration on these aspects… everything is concentrated on cancer … children beyond the scope of thyroid cancer are very important…

Wertelecki: There’s a team of experts on birds and ornithology form France, with a very distinguished Danish ornithologist who found in Chernobyl area very,very major disturbing findings that exactly the same is happening in Fukushima.
In other words these birds cannot migrate because they become exhausted… they find microcephaly just like we do, they find all kind of instability like random spotted changes to fur, which are local mutations of course on so on and so on.
