Breaking News: Interview with Dr C.Busby: Part 1

Dr. Christopher Busby, BSc, PhD, C. Chem, MRSC, has been one of the most helpful and insightful sources for Japanese people left in radiation.

Dr. Busby obtained a BSc in Chemistry with First Class Honours from the University of London, and then did research for the Wellcome Foundation (applying spectroscopic and analytical methods to chemical pharmacology and molecular drug interactions). He became and elected member of the Royal Society of Chemistry. He later gained a PhD in Chemical Physics at the University of Kent, researching Raman spectro-electrochemistry.

  • Busby was a member of the British government sponsored Committee Examining Radiation Risks from Internal Emitters (CERRIE), which operated from 2001 to 2004.
  • In 2001 he was appointed to the UK Ministry of Defence Oversight Committee on Depleted Uranium (DUOB).
  • In 2003 he was elected a Fellow of the Faculty of Medicine, University of Liverpool, in the Department of Human Anatomy and Cell Biology.
  • In 2004 he was named Leader of Science Policy for (EU) Policy Information Network for Child Health and Environment PINCHE based in Arnhem, The Netherlands.
  • Busby was the scientific secretary of the European Committee on Radiation Risks, an informal committee based in Brussels, which produced a report for CERRIE.

However, some Japanese people are becoming suspicious of him and “Christopher Busby Foundation for the Children of Fukushima” (CBFCF).

Some people even call him a fraud.

Is that true ?

I managed to have a chance to interview with Dr C.Busby and asked about the truth.


Here in Japan, we all need your help but are confused as well.

Some people say CBFCF and the tablets (source) are fraud business or something.

I think that’s just because the marketing caused a kind of misunderstanding in Japan or some people are trying to get rid of you.


Dr C.Busby:

it is a nightmare.

The CBFCF is genuine enough but I have no control over what the web designers say and cant read Japanese. I have had various friends in Japan read the CBFCF sites and they say that they are OK but a bit commercial. But as soon as I got together with the guy who has the money to do this and make the supplements the CBFCF was attacked as a fraud and It was suggested I was a fraud and a snake oil salesman trying to get rich on the back of the children. etc. Interestingly, we were attacked by the harmonics life outfit that I went to help over the Koriyama lawsuit.

Meanwhile, they ( harmonics life) are collecting money for me to do measurements and I have done a lot of measurements for them. I dont know how much they collect but they sent me 2000 dollars to pay for the analyses (which are expensive, i have them done in a commercial lab here in the UK, and do some myself as well for a song). I have told both sides not to attack each other and that I dont sanction any attacks on anyone but they dont listen. Either it is the usual falling out of opposition parties chasing funding or it is something more sinister aimed to destroy my credibility. Personally I have had enough of all of them. Nothing is being done, no pills are being made, no measurements made and the situation deteriorates.



Thank you very much for your explanation. I would like many people to know what is true.

I would be glad if you kindly allow me to post your comment on my blog.


Dr C.Busby:

Yes, you may post my comment on your blog.

No doubt it will make matters worse, but it is the truth, many people would like to know, I expect.



I believe truth must be known by everyone whatever it may cause. And a casual question, we wonder why you don’t make videos with better production than a play ground or someone’s kitchen. ( better in the meaning of design. ) I think appearing in a lab or a studio might look way more authentic and prevent them from misunderstanding you.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
