-00:00 Dennis Bernstein: w Joseph Mangano, administrator, coordinator of the Radiation and Public Health Project
, their 'Tooth Fairy' study.. voluntary donations of baby teeth.. also legendary physicist Dr. Ernest J Sternglass, (link2), (link3), nuclear scientist, turned anti-nuclear scientist.. this study started 5 years ago. Backgound: A 50's study of 60,000 baby teeth documented rise in radioactive Strontium 90 in children due the fallout from above-ground testing of atomic weapons (that study resulted in the 1963 treaty ban of above-ground testing).. since then there have been no studies to measure radiation in the bodies of Americans. (until this new 'Tooth Fairy Project').. Fallout from 60's bomb test in Nevada came down in NY and caused an increase in childhood leukemia. Dr. Sternglass has found that cancers and infant mortality rates rise around nuclear reactors.
-14:50 Dennis: w parent Debbie Santora who lives 10 miles from a Florida reactor. her county has abnormally high cancer rates in children, high breast cancer rates.. unusual tumors.. her 6-month old daugher recently diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a very rare cancer.. more cases in her area.. daughter on chemotherapy.. no family history of cancer.. Debbie: if the mothers don't get involved nothing is gonna change.. people getting involved is where it's at.. the tooth fairy project very important.. we have to get these nuclear reactors stopped..
-22:30 Dennis: w Joseph Mangano: tomorrow's hearing in Florida to relicense this nuclear reactor.. no health study..
Dr Sternglass will testify tomorrow.. a giant spike in cancer rates.. years ago NRC required atomic plants to monitor Strontium 90, but AFTER Chernobyl, they relaxed the standards, S-90 not monitored anymore.. S-90 the most serious of all the toxins.. by not examining this anymore, the government estimates are sometimes one ten-thousandth the actual.. the industry is desperate.. They are endangering the very future of our society..

-32:45 Dennis: w Janette D. Sherman, MD. author of Lifes Delicate Balance, Causes and Prevention of Breast Cancer.. when S-90 is given off by a nuclear reactor, other radioactive emissions come along with them. Children are particularly vulnerable.. these emissions are is a massive stem-cell experiment on our children.. also increased breast cancer rates.. cancer does not occur randomly..
-41:00 Dennis: w a 'Tooth Fairy' scientist from SF.. the bay area has a heavy radiation burden because of facilities at UC Berkeley Livermore Labs, Stanford, Hunter's Point, Richmond..
call 510-845-3139 for a personal presentation, and to get envelopes sent to you to mail in baby teeth
-44:00 Dennis: w Berkeley's Penny Rosenwasser of (Middle East Childrens Alliance) telephone interview: here in Jerusalem at the opening of the Jewish Olympics at Maccabiah stadium, eight protestors disrupted Ariel Sharon's speech, one of the eight a Holocaust survivor.. people tried to grab the signs out of our hands..
Penny talking on the phone live as she/they are being packed into a police van, (sound of doors clanging shut).. now w Allegra Pacheco, human rights attorney: we're just two miles from Bethlehem, which is under total seige.. here a stadium celebration, for Jews only.. we held up a big banner calling Sharon a war criminal, yelling 'Sharon is a war criminal' in Hebrew.. the protestors were attacked by spectators and then police dragged them out..
Ms. Pacheco: the Palestinians have been oppressed for decades, this is a liberation struggle.. we're being taken to the Police station.. because we are Jews we will be treated well.. we want the world to know.. don't support war crimes.. we are considered criminals, while the real war criminal is Ariel Sharon
.. ((sounds of loud banging))
-49:50 now w
Neta Golan founder of the International Solidarity Movement
: our banner calling Ariel Sharon a war criminal.. people are being murdered on a daily basis.. these games are a lie.. the reality is that there are many Jews opposed to the occupation.. occupation is not a game.. like in 1936 when people knew about what was happening and ignored it.. it is our responsibility.. message to the America people.. US tax dollars creating this monster in the Middle East.. (Israel) trying to exploit the unity of the Jewish people.. completely based on force and military power.. NOT IN MY NAME.. we are opposed.. People in Hebron have been under curfew for five days.. people are starving.. no water
(being taken out of the van now).. back to Penny: everything appears normal here.. a lovely summer night in Jerusalem.. here's to peace and justice for all..
