The National Cancer Institute (NCI) yesterday warned people against travelling to Japan in the wake of nuclear-plant explosions.

“Exposure to radiation over a long time or in large amounts can cause cancer,” NCI director Dr Thiravud Khuhaprema said.

Meanwhile Dr Piboon Issaraphan, a senior official at the Public Health Ministry’s Bureau of Occupational and Environmental Diseases, said Thais living near the nuclear plants would be given medication to help protect them from thyroid cancer.
