"Nuclear plant worker dies of acute leukemia"

TEPCO claims this person did not get ill from working at the plant.

It is possible that this person volunteered to work at the plant because he already had this terrible disease.

It is also possible that he developed radiation sickness while working at the plant from exposure to one of the very high radiation sources at the plant.

Recall that areas of the plant have been found to be extraordinarily "hot," at 10 sieverts an hour.

Exposure to 10 sieverts would kill a person within days.
