Elements in the low loss of life to radiation in Japan
Sadly, the death-toil from radiation in Japan is relatively low, because those that would have likely received more lethal doses, were killed or displaced by the devastation from the tsunami. Though high levels of radiation are fatal, low levels are more subtle in their affects on biological creatures. The study of both the A-bomb related human costs in Japan, and the later nuclear disaster in Chernobyl ; and their more subtle damage, will be studied and debated for generations to come.
