People need to be better informed.

Am really peeved at the way that the major news outlets are reporting the crisis with emphasis on the radiation danger over in Japan. By all accounts from bloggers and people actually living there, there appears something to be concerned about but the news outlets are really using scare tactics to the rest of the world and then you have people completely misinformed citizens talking about what’s really going on over there…have a link below from a respected news site that tells it like it is…no scare tactics just plain facts.

We Should Stop Running Away From Radiation

    >Never consider any news report factual. If you read the link in the article to the referenced UN report you will notice in the conclusion it states more than 6000 thyroid cancers have been observed in people that were children at the time of the Chernobyl accident. Why did the author fail to mention that? Is the article biased? What is their agenda for writing the article? Always read between the lines and dig for more information.Though I agree with your concerns on news sensationalism, peole should be accurately informed. My heartfelt prayers go out to the Japanese people; I could not imagine the pain and hardship some of them will have to endure after losing their family, friends, suburb, town or whole city to this disaster.
