Finding someone with the insight and knowledge and as important, with the guts, to state what’s really happening as a result of the damaged Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan, has unfortunately become an equally disastrous media event. The lack of comprehensive news coverage is perhaps a symptomatic display of where corporate power and corporate media has taken us, and nothing more. Good information sources are out there but they can be difficult to find I you don’t know where to look.

This video news piece is Helen Caldicott  speaking on the subject of the health hazards posed by radioactive waste and she gives us some perspective on the seriousness of the unfolding disaster at Fukushima. Helen is “The single most articulate and passionate advocate of citizen action to remedy the nuclear and environmental crises. She has devoted the last 38 years to an international campaign to educate the public about the medical hazards of the nuclear age and the necessary changes in human behavior to stop environmental destruction.”

If you don’t want to hear about this subject then I would suggest you don’t watch this video. Helen is straight forward and candid.
