“Thyroid Cancer Hits Fukushima” SBS TV Australia

Note: The failure of Japan to institute mandatory reporting of cancer diagnosis via regional and national cancer registries at the dawn of the nuclear power industry in that country has left the nation defenceless and ignorant of the changes in rates of disease it suffers. Studying the health impacts of Fukushima upon the children of Fukushima is likewise taking place in isolation. The Soviet Union in 1989 was totally unlike Japan in 2011 – 2013. The Soviet stats cannot be trusted.

The only rational comparison between the children of Fukushima is the children of Japan.

On the basis of the information below, the rate of Thyroid cancer suffered by the children of Fukushima has sky rocketed beyond anything previously known.

Thyroid cancer hits Fukushima

Nine more young people have been diagnosed with thyroid cancer since Japan’s worst nuclear accident two years ago, according to reports.

Nine more young people have been diagnosed with thyroid cancer since Japan’s worst nuclear accident two years ago.

That has brought the total number of cancer cases to 12 residents, who were 18 or younger at the time of the meltdowns at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, the Kyodo News agency reported on Wednesday, citing unnamed sources.

Fifteen others were also suspected of suffering from some form of cancer, up from seven in a February report, Kyodo said.

But experts at Fukushima Medical University said that it is too early to link the cancer cases to the nuclear disaster. They said the 1986 Chernobyl accident showed that it takes at least four to five years before thyroid cancer is detected.

Local government officials surveyed about 174,000 young people near the plant in Fukushima.

“Fukushima’s survey examines people who have no symptoms across the board and it is hard to evaluate it because there are no comparable data,” an unnamed Environment Ministry official was quoted as saying.

“We need to take a careful look at it.”

The Fukushima plant suffered meltdowns at three of its six reactors after it was struck by an earthquake and tsunami. More than 150,000 residents have been forced to leave their homes around the complex due to radioactive contamination.

Thyroid cancers – The inconvenient truth
Posted by nelson311 ⋅ June 6, 2013

In September 2012, the first case of thyroid cancer was diagnosed in a child out of 38 000 children.

Conclusion by Pr. Suzuki of the infamous Fukushima Medical University; “not related to the nuclear accident. It took 5 yrs in Chernobyl to see an increase in thyroid cancers””

In February, new tests showed that 2 more children aged 18 and younger also were diagnosed with thyroid cancer. 7 more patients (guinea pigs) were suspected to have contracted similar form of the disease and that further testing was needed.

Note; 15 yrs old is the average age of those ten people, with seven being female.

Conclusion by Pr. Suzuki of the infamous Fukushima Medical University; “not related to the nuclear accident. It took 5 yrs in Chernobyl to see an increase in thyroid cancers”

In May 2013, 9 more thyroid cancers were detected in children, bringing the number of cases to 12. 15 more patients (guinea pigs) are thought to also have contracted this form of the disease. The numbers were released as part of an ongoing investigation by the Fukushima Prefecture Board of Health.The investigation has examined about 174,000 adults and children from towns surrounding the crippled plant.

Conclusion by Pr. Suzuki of the infamous Fukushim
a Medical University; “not related to the nuclear accident. It took 5 yrs in Chernobyl to see an increase in thyroid cancers”

Among those aged 10 to 14 in Japan, thyroid cancer strikes about 1 to 2 in a million. That is prior 311. We are only 2 and a half years removed from the explosions in Daiichi.

The ongoing conclusion by Pr; Shinichi Suzuki and Dr. Shuinichi Yamashita on this increase in thyroid cancers stands with inaccurate or incomplete researches post Chernobyl. But there was no real official surveys made before early 90′s when former President Gorbatchev was forced to answer to the international community about the effects of radiation exposure and fall out of the 1986 nuclear catastrophe.

If we follow Suzuki and Yamashita’s logic, it would imply that children in Fukushima are getting sicker, quicker than in Chernobyl. I trust that these two clowns will quickly stop referring to early Chernobyl’s studies.

We can assume today that there are more cases than the Board of Health investigation has claimed due to weaknesses in their methodology, such as not accounting for migration, shady thyroid tests results and not bringing children with small nodules in to be reexamined. i.e Towns like Iwaki shi which is not included in the survey.

These surveys focus mostly on thyroid examinations. Unfortunately, many more cancers and other diseases could potentially be associated to this crisis in the near future (if it has not already). Only time will tell us how bad this situation will get. In the meantime, the children of Fukushima and Japan have become guinea pigs to a gang of selfish, greedy, corrupted to the bones, irresponsible mad men.

Last month, U.N. scientists and the criminally insane UNSCEAR assessing the health impact of the Fukushima nuclear crisis said the radiation dose for residents in the region was much lower than Chernobyl and that they do not expect to see any increase in cancer in the future.

We implore you to help ! At least, please stay informed ! Thank you.
