Scientific evidence shows that a rare earth processing plant approved for Pahang is harmless to the people living in the vicinity of the project site in Gebeng, Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak said today.
He said this was established after the project of Lynas Corporation was subjected to a review by the government following complaints from the public and NGOs.
SO LET’S NOT WORRY BECAUSE THE PM SAYS SO?
However, consider these two comments in today’ posting:
A Malaysian said...
REPORT from "DAIWA CAPITAL MARKETS" assessment on LYNAS plant to the Corporation after visiting the plant in Pahang: (page 4)
"Parts of the Lynas plant were flooded on the day of my visit (13 January).
The plant has yet to be completed.
The plant is built on swamp land, which local residents say floods easily.
It is also situated close to the Balok River, where local fishermen go about their work"
But the construction and design may have serious flaws, according to the engineers, who also provided memos, e-mail messages and
photos from Lynas and its contractors. The engineers said they felt a professional duty to voice their safety concerns, but insisted on anonymity to avoid the risk of becoming industry outcasts.
Of course-lah, Lynas mgt will deny this and that. They sure learnt fast from our BN govt! But Lynas shareholders are not STUPID like some people. Lynas shares dived 11 percent today!
3000 or 15000? It doesn't matter. What I saw was faces of ONE Malaysian coming together for a good cause.
Susah-lah for the politicans. If they turned up, they are accused of hijacking the RAKYAT event, if they don't turn up, they are accused of not being concerned about RAKYAT health !!!

I do not want to talk about lynas..
I just want to talk about myself..
I have a daughter which is diagnose with metabolic disorder which is suspect due my previous job which might have expose me to the mutation of my gene.
My girl birth to be a happy and normal baby, just after 3 months the entire neurotransmital system shuts down.. due to her body unable to create this neuro transmital checmical.. she becomes floppy and unable to move hand, legs and head... for a few months with all the blood test and scans unable to find out the real cause.. until the doctor retrieve "sum sum tulang" and sent to Europe for analysis only we get the real cause of her genetic disorder.. now she is on medication everyday, with all the pyhsio and speech therapy... which eat me up every month at least 2k of my salary... which u pour in every month to help her with an unknown rate of return whether she will be cure or get better.... so people out there... even with a 0.00000001% i dont think is worth to take the risk...
