The Environmental Community Health Organization (ECHO) has expressed serious concerns over the possibility of unsafe levels of radiation entering the country via imported used Japanese vehicles. The agency has thus urged the government to take heed of the negative effects this environmental hazard could cause locally.Executive Director of the environmental body, Royston King, told Kaieteur News that there are serious implications, both for the environment and human life regarding radioactive contamination. He said that the agency has already dispatched correspondences to the,wholeslae cheap nfl jerseys china, “Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources and the Ministry of Health, to investigate what is clearly an emerging negative environmental challenge, to ascertain the true status of this problem and to prevent it from hurting the ecology of the environment.”ECHO Director Royston KingKing stressed that the ongoing issue,Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys, especially uncertainty regarding contamination levels, “is really a frightening situation.”“High levels of contamination can significantly threaten both people and the environment. If individuals become contaminated with radioactive material, they will be exposed to radiation until the material is eliminated from their bodies,Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale, hair, and clothing. The effects of radioactive containment depend on the level of radioactive contamination and the chemical toxicity of the substance. In some cases, the substance may be disseminated throughout the body and quickly removed. In other cases, significant impairment can occur, such as organ damage or failure.”He said radioactive waste contamination can occur externally, internally,Cheap Jerseys Store, or through the environment. External contamination occurs when the radioactive material, usually in the form of dust, powder, or liquid, gets on an individual’s hair, skin, or clothing. Internal contamination takes place when an individual inhales, swallows, or absorbs radioactive substances. Environmental contamination occurs when radioactive material is distributed or released into the environment.Contamination occurs when unregulated radioactive materials- gas, liquid, or particles are released. “Plants, buildings, people, and animals can become contaminated when radioactive material is disbursed into the environment.”“A nuclear explosion, for example,Wholesale China Jerseys, can result in the distribution of radioactive contamination. The phenomenon is usually known as nuclear fallout. When a radioactive substance is not properly sealed in a base container, it can spread to other objects, causing radioactive contamination.”This is the situation with the Japanese Fukushima nuclear Plant, which to date, is still leaking radioactive water following the destructive tsunami that ravished that country in 2011.In the meantime, local authorities say they are still investigating whether there is a need for alarm. The Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA), which is responsible for the approval of items being imported into the country is still making the necessary checks, Commissioner General, Khurshid Sattaur stated.In a recent interview, he told Kaieteur News that he “does not want to trespass or invade areas concerning other relevant agencies.” Sattaur said that there are agencies that would have to be engaged in the matter since they would have specific functions.The Health Ministry has also pledged investigations into what Minister Bheri Ramsaran described as, “a very important issue.”Calls to EPA proved that the environmental agency is not in a position to address the importation or presence of contaminated vehicles in the country. A staffer told this newspaper that EPA has no policy regarding the specific issue. The female employee agreed when asked,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, that the specific issue would be a matter for EPA, but she reiterated that the agency is not equipped to deal with it.The wrecked Fukushima nuclear Plant after 2011’s tsunamiSeveral car dealers have stated also that they are in no position to detect harmful vehicles when they are imported. They added that they rely on the assurances of Japanese exporters. One car dealer said that all his vehicles come from Japan, but he cannot ascertain its safety. Others say they can only insist that their suppliers provide vehicles with safe radiation levels.The issue concerning these Japanese vehicles came to light when Jamaican authorities returned two harmful shipments of vehicles and spare parts to Japan because it had unsafe levels of radiation; one shipment was heading to Guyana. Local officials are mum on questions pertaining to the possibility of harmful vehicles already being in the country. Suppliers say the assumption is not farfetched.
