Radiation standards: A prediction

In Human rights, Nuclear Guardianship, Nuclear Policy, Poetry, Public Health, Rocky Flats on March 26, 2015 at 1:02 am

Standards for permissible exposure

to radiation

fail to protect sufficiently.

They are a dam that holds back

a flood of illness and death

but cannot prevent

an “insignificant” trickle

of the diseased and damned

from passing through.

These standards are a damn dam

that lets a harmful enterprise thrive.

Today’s trickle is a warning:

In time, the dam will break

in a flood of illness and death.

    • Hello Jesse Gallegos:

      Thanks for your comment, not a happy one. I will forward your message to people who are in the medical field, hoping that at least one of them will be able to help. Have you sought compensation or medical care from EEOICPA (Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act)? From your message, I think you have no hopes for assistance from this program.
