The Headquarters for the Relief of Animals in Emergency : consists of JSPCA, Japan Pet Corporation, Japan Veterinary Medical Association, and Japan Animal Welfare Society ( doubutsukyuen.org ). This is the organization that was created by the Government of Japan to help and assist the Fukushima animals. You will NOTE that the Japan Veterinary Medical Association is part of the Government Run Organization created to HELP the FUKUSHIMA DISASTER ANIMALS. They are also HEAVILY involved with doing RADIATION RESEARCH using FUKUSHIMA LEFT BEHIND ANIMALS. The Japan Veterinary Medical Association not only receives research money grants from the Ministry of Environment, but if you look at the money that is donated by the Headquarters for the Relief of Animals in Emergency, various Veterinary associations receive money, even when they weren’t doing anything with the Fukushima animals. And, they have a role in advising the Government of Japan about Animal Welfare and that would include the welfare of the Fukushima Left-behind animals. However, not one PEEP has come from them about the remaining Fukushima left behind pets. Nothing about the harmful radioactive contaminated environment where they are forced to live. Nothing about removal of the Fukushima Left behind pets. SILENCE is what has come from them.
Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident: facts, environmental contamination, possible biological effects, and countermeasures
Actually, both the direct and indirect effects of radiation cause biological damage. However, the difference is due to the type of radiation and physical and/or chemical conditions.
When living organisms are exposed to radiation, the main effects are divided into early, intermediate and late
There are two types of radiation injuries, acute radiation injury and delayed radiation injury.
Late radiation injury
When whole-body is exposed to low-dose radiation or repeatedly exposed to low dose-rate radiation, some effects appear over a period of years or decades. Such damage is known as delayed radiation injury. Among them, radiation carcinogenesis, such as leukemia and other malignancies, is thought to have no threshold dose and is classified as a stochastic effect. Cataracts are also a form of late radiation injury, but have a threshold dose for onset and are classified as deterministic effects.
