[en] No radiation is safe, the 73-year-old Australian physician and author argued during a 'Facing off for Social Justice in a Militarized World' session of the conference, which explored issues ranging from handling radioactive waste to the public health consequences of radiation leaks, such as those now being experienced at the Fukushima Nuclear Plant complex in the wake of the earthquake and tsunami which devastated parts of northern Japan.

Concrete cracks, plastics are no good, and iron disintegrates as it rusts,' she told the conference.
