In March of this year, the UN Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation issued a report titled the “20 Year Report.”

 As we have mentioned several times before, in addition to internal exposure to cesium, the current report also includes a significant downward trend. Moreover, the report indicates that the possibility of an increase in cancers associated with radiation exposure, including thyroid cancer, is low.

 The genetic effects of radiation are also not clear in the results after the Chernobyl accident, and we are not in a situation to be concerned about genetic effects after the Fukushima accident.
