Such a spike in children is very unusual -- but given what is known about radiation it is not really surprising. Children are 1000 X more vulnerable to radiation because children are growing, hence, their DNA is undergoing rapid replication. It is well known that radiation causes damage during cell division.
I challenge Gyldenglove to present data showing such a pattern in children after tsunamis or hurricanes. MHG
I've got a challenge to you first - show me the data upon which you're basing all these assertions.
Get me the data, let me replicate the analysis that was made to verify that it correct, then we'll talk.
Where's the data?
