I saw a story today about some radiation-related quackery being flogged to unsuspecting members of the Japanese public.
Some of the most anxious are the parents of young children, who experts say are the most vulnerable to the effects of radiation.
And, I would add, these parents in turn are the most vulnerable to the effects of snake oil sellers. The con-men are selling their “tests” at 8,400 yen per child, it appears.
To preempt certain comment directed towards Japanese, note that the UK government recently fell for bomb detecting quackery. And a darling of the anti-nuclear
village teepee compound, Christopher Busby, also sold anti-radiation quackery.
And just to keep Laxman happy, I hear both CJ and Mr Arudou bought one.
