Dr. Tsubokura's Radiation Lecture Vol.82

Author: Masaharu Tsubokura Editors: Akihiko Ozaki M.D., Yuki Senoo 163. The Importance of Adopting a Broader Perspective in Health Management The extent of the exposure dose determines radiation’s health impacts. Various countermeasures and investigations have been conducted to prevent excessive radiation exposure from the nuclear accident that occurred at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. However, radiation exposure is not the only determinant of health. Therefore, it is crucial to understand the various factors that affect one’s health and to take control of your health in a well-balanced manner. Diabetes has become a huge health concern following Japan’s 2011 Fukushima nuclear po

Seminar about Fukushima in Fez Medical School

Author: Karim Moutchou Institution: Medical Student, Fez Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy Editors: Akihiko Ozaki M.D., Yuki Senoo Introduction In the previous two articles about my visit to Japan, "My clinical exchange experience in Japan" and "Visit to Fukushima Prefecture," I detailed some of what I learned during my trip, which was organized by the Medical Governance Research Institute (MEGRI). After the visit, I was very motivated to share my experience with my colleagues in my hometown, Fez. Seminar about my experience in Fukushima: Fifteen students from different grades were selected to attend the seminar. Following short introductions of myself and the medical students, I presented

Dr. Tsubokura's Radiation Lecture Vol.81

Author: Masaharu Tsubokura Editors: Akihiko Ozaki M.D., Yuki Senoo 161. When a fission chain reaction is stabilized, this is called "criticality." Neutrons play an important role in inducing a continuous fission chain reaction of uranium-235, which is required for nuclear power generation. When nuclear fission of uranium-235 occurs, two or three neutrons are released. These neutrons produced from the fission reaction of uranium will then collide with another uranium-235 atom, which is followed by another fission reaction. In this manner, self-sustaining chain fission reactions can take place, and new neutrons are repeatedly produced. As mentioned above, two or three neutrons are released as

Dr. Tsubokura's Radiation Lecture Vol.80

Author: Masaharu Tsubokura Editors: Akihiko Ozaki M.D., Yuki Senoo 159. The reactor continues to cool after the termination of a nuclear fission reaction Nuclear power plants generate electricity by turning a turbine via water vapor, which is obtained from heating the water using the energy released from the nuclear fission reaction of uranium 235. Of the energy generated by nuclear fusion reaction at nuclear power plants, approximately 30% is used for power generation, while the rest is unnecessary and overheats the reactor. Therefore, nuclear power plant operation requires a huge amount of cooling water. However, this does not mean that the reactor cooling system can be stopped when the nu

Xinjiang Uyghur Region to Hungary: The Story of How I Decided to Study in the EU

Author: Anonymus Editors: Akihiko Ozaki M.D., Yuki Senoo I am a third-year medical student studying at the University of Pécs Medical School in Hungary. I am an Uyghur and grew up in the small city of Bole, which covers an area of 7,802 km2 with a total population of approximately 106,400 people. In this paper, I would like to share my story about how I decided to study medicine in Hungary. My name means a "magical herb" in Uyghur, and it appears in an ancient Uyghur fairy tale as the herb that can cure any disease. As you can see from this, my parents have always been enthusiastic about education, especially in the medical field. Looking back, I have been surrounded by stories related to me
