Lynas plant should continue
Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad blogs about the inspection by the International Atomic Energy Agency, the world authority on nuclear material, has not reported any danger at the Lynas project in Gebeng, Kuantan.
He further writes about being X-rayed many times as part of his heart and lungs treatment and how he is against nuclear power plants because the side effects are irreversible. Dr Mahathir efers to the Chernobyl disaster in Kiev and the fear of radiation in Tokyo following damage to the Fukushima nuclear plant after the tsunami some months ago.
He then asks if the Lynas plant for processing rare earth is a dangerous source of radiation because there are many countries with a similar plant but have not reported anything on radiation.
