COMMENTS OF DR. ZBIGNIEW JAWOROWSKI REPRESENTATIVE OF REPUBLIC OF POLAND IN UNSCEAR "CHERNOBYL’S LEGACY: HEALTH, ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIO-ECONOMIC IMPACTS" THE CHERNOBYL FORUM

1. GENERAL COMMENTS:

The apparent aim of the document is to dispel irrational psychosis of fear among the population in the three countries most affected by the Chernobyl accident, and among the public elsewhere. Except for 31 early fatalities, psychosis is the most grave and wide impact of this accident, both at the regional and global scale. It caused the greatest medical, economic and societal harm. The document rightly (although not explicitly) stresses that in the contaminated areas the vast majority of about 5 million inhabitants receives now irradiation from the Chernobyl fallout corresponding to a lifetime dose less than 70 mSv, which is lower than the average global natural lifetime radiation dose of 170 mSv, and many times lower than the natural doses in many regions of the world, and that therefore most of the excessive restrictions imposed during the past twenty years should be removed.
