NATO use of depleted uranium during 1999 bombing of Yugoslavia leaves Serbia 97,000 cancer patients [Video]

People’s Daily: Today marks the 23rd anniversary of the end of NATO’s bombing of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. After an international legal team filed lawsuits against NATO on behalf of 3,000 victims over the horrific consequences of up to 15 tons of depleted uranium bombs NATO dropped in 1999, NATO responded by saying it has immunity from prosecution. Do you have any comment?Zhao Lijian: Twenty-three years ago, US-led NATO blatantly bombarded the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia for 78 days without the approval of the UN Security Council. In total, NATO dropped nearly 420,000 bombs weighing 22,000 tons, including 15 tons of depleted uranium bombs. Over 2,500 people including 79 children were killed and more than one million people became refugees as a direct result of the bombings. What is more heart-wrenching is that death and agony brought by the war lingered for generations till this day. As noted by experts, exposure to radiation emitted by depleted uranium bombs can show no symptom for years and depleted uranium bombs have long-term impact on the environment and human food-chain. In the 10 years after the bombing, about 30,000 people in Serbia developed cancer, among whom 10,000 died. According to the Institute of Public Health of Belgrade, by the end of 2019, the number of registered cancer patients in Serbia was as high as 97,000. A study of the Serbian emergency center shows that among children born in Serbia after 1999, many aged between one and five suffered from ectodermal tumors, many aged between five and nine contracted hematological malignancies, and there is a clear uptick in the morbidity rate of brain cancer among those aged between nine and 18. Besides, by May 2019, 366 Italian military personnel who participated in the NATO military operations have died of cancer, and 7,500 have fallen sick. However, till this day, the US — the country that sent military aircraft to drop depleted uranium bombs over Serbia and the inventor of this type of bombs as well as the only country that has ever used them — continues to deny that depleted uranium bombs can directly cause Gulf War syndrome and Kosovo syndrome. During the Gulf War, the US dropped far more depleted uranium bombs over Iraq. NATO is also trying to get away with it by claiming immunity from prosecution. Such moves by the US-led NATO are shocking. Neither the Serbian people, nor people elsewhere in the world seeking justice, will ever agree to this. The US-led NATO should earnestly reflect on its war crimes, and provide a reasonable explanation and compensations to the victims of depleted uranium bombs as soon as possible. NATO must also seriously learn the lesson and stop creating new turmoil and division across the world. __________________Powered by Shanghai Media Group, ShanghaiEye focuses on producing top-quality content for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube.Nobody knows Shanghai better than us.Please subscribe to us ☻☻☻__________________For more stories, please click ■ What’s up today in Shanghai, the most updated news of the cityhttps://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLeyl7CQ2A5MNjpE4hspSVry8dR555getN■ Amazing Shanghai, exploring the unknown corners of the city, learning the people, food and stories behind themhttps://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLeyl7CQ2A5MMVTWr-zIXjsS4hhSQPmyes■ What Chinese people’s lives are like during the post COVID-19 periodhttps://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLeyl7CQ2A5MPrPTmIirpfgETu6VKVESXe■ Views of foreign scholars on China and its affairshttps://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLeyl7CQ2A5MO9ua_nSK6slRPdUl-ovjRe■ Foreign faces in Shanghai, people living in this city sharing their true feelingshttps://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLeyl7CQ2A5MP0vJDSw23_1MCPJhAfGbiG■ Mini-docs showing why China is the country it is today https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLeyl7CQ2A5MOreRu2AbZ3ziIUyCcdBLwX__________________☎Leave us messages if you have any suggestions or questions!Thank you!

Life-saving Surgery! Shanghai doctors removed a 12cm tumor for a foreign cancer patient [Video]

A UK patient, known as ‘Anna’, suffering from severe colon cancer was recently saved by medical experts from Zhongshan Hospital in Shanghai. Early in the morning on December 16th, she expressed her gratitude to the medical staff before being discharged from the hospital. In the first half of this year, Anna started feeling pain in the lower abdomen and did not get better after taking medicines by herself. After she was examined in Zhongshan Hospital, she was diagnosed with locally advanced colon cancer. Due to the high risk of surgery, Anna visited many hospitals to seek medical treatment but to no avail. By the end of November, medical experts from Zhongshan Hospital found that a 12-centimeter tumor had severely invaded her small intestine, and without surgery, her life would be in danger. After Anna was admitted to the hospital, the medical team immediately invited relevant departments such as anesthesia, cardiology and nephrology for consultation, aiming to minimize surgery-related risks. On December 7th, the medical team performed a 3D laparoscopic minimally invasive surgery on Anna to successfully remove the tumor. Colon cancer is a common malignant tumor. Although its early symptoms are not obvious, it can be detected early through colonoscopy. Zhongshan Hospital plans to pilot community-based accurate public welfare screening of colorectal tumors with DNA detection technology among local residents aged from 40-74 in Xuhui District from the beginning of 2022, so that potential patients can be diagnosed and start receiving treatment as early as possible.__________________Powered by Shanghai Media Group, ShanghaiEye focuses on producing top-quality content for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube.Nobody knows Shanghai better than us.Please subscribe to us ☻☻☻__________________For more stories, please click ■ What’s up today in Shanghai, the most updated news of the cityhttps://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLeyl7CQ2A5MNjpE4hspSVry8dR555getN■ Amazing Shanghai, exploring the unknown corners of the city, learning the people, food and stories behind themhttps://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLeyl7CQ2A5MMVTWr-zIXjsS4hhSQPmyes■ What Chinese people’s lives are like during the post COVID-19 periodhttps://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLeyl7CQ2A5MPrPTmIirpfgETu6VKVESXe■ Views of foreign scholars on China and its affairshttps://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLeyl7CQ2A5MO9ua_nSK6slRPdUl-ovjRe■ Foreign faces in Shanghai, people living in this city sharing their true feelingshttps://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLeyl7CQ2A5MP0vJDSw23_1MCPJhAfGbiG■ Mini-docs showing why China is the country it is today https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLeyl7CQ2A5MOreRu2AbZ3ziIUyCcdBLwX__________________☎Leave us messages if you have any suggestions or questions!Thank you!
