“Latency Period of Benign and Malignant Thyroid Tumors

Although some sporadic tumors unrelated to radiation may be included among our patients, the shortest latency period for both benign and malignant tumors was 1 year as occurred in 3 patients, whereas the longest time was 69 and 58 years, respectively (Fig. 1).” As published in Journal List nAnn Surg v.239(4); Apr 2004 PMC1356259, available full text at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1356259/

All of these reports contradict Fukushima Medical University 2013 and Yamashita 2013.

THE MINIMUM LATENT PERIOD FOR THYROID CANCER HAS BEEN REPORTED IN PEER REVIEWED MEDICAL JOURNALS AS BEING LESS THAN THE 4-5 YEARS CLAIMED BY FUKUSHIMA MEDICAL UNIVERSITY AND DR YAMASHITA 2013.

There is apparent self interest in quoting a longer minimum latent period in Japan by nuclear authorities and nuclear funded medicos in that country. In my opinion.
