Fukushima's Children are Dying

From:  Harvey Wasserman 

Some 39 months after the multiple explosions at Fukushima, thyroid cancer rates among nearby children have skyrocketed to more than forty times (40x) normal.
39 months from the reactor explosion of multiple at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. The incidence of thyroid cancer in children in the surrounding area has skyrocketed to 40 times the normal.
More than 48 percent of some 375,000 young people-nearly 200,000 kids-tested by the Fukushima Medical University near the smoldering reactors now suffer from pre-cancerous thyroid abnormalities, primarily nodules and cysts. The rate is accelerating.
According to a survey Fukushima Medical University is carried out, 48% or more of the young subjects of 370,005 thousand people, including children of about 20 million people will develop cysts and nodules of pre-cancerous condition, the rate is I have further increased.
More than 120 childhood cancers have been indicated where just three would be expected, says Joseph Mangano, executive director of the Radiation and Public Health Project.
Chief officer of the "public health project and radioactivity" is supposed to childhood cancer of about three is expected, childhood cancer of 120 or more, and has been shown, Joseph Mangano said he usually have.
The nuclear industry and its apologists continue to deny this public health tragedy. Some have actually asserted that "not one person" has been affected by Fukushima's massive radiation releases, which for some isotopes exceed Hiroshima by a factor of nearly 30.
Its advocates and nuclear power industry continues to deny the tragedy of this public health. Parties to assert that "not even one" there are also those that injured more than 30 times the radioactive isotope amount that has been released in the Hiroshima atomic bomb, in the radioactivity release of a large amount from the Fukushima nuclear power plant.
But the deadly epidemic at Fukushima is consistent with impacts suffered among children near the 1979 accident at Three Mile Island and the 1986 explosion at Chernobyl, as well as findings at other commercial reactors.
However, a large amount of development such as childhood thyroid cancer severe in Fukushima, to develop children in the near power stations or other, of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear power plant explosion and after the Three Mile Island nuclear accident in 1979 is consistent with the findings of the disease are.
But a wide range of independent studies confirm heightened infant death rates and excessive cancers among the general population. Excessive death, mutation and disease rates among local animals were confirmed by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture and local journalists.
In addition, the studies not in with string (in Pennsylvania is located in the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant), the increase in cancer incidence in the general adult and an increase in child mortality not only have been identified, and Ya Department of Agriculture of the state Journalists have confirmed an increase in disease and the rate of mutation and sudden death in animals that live in local.
In the 1980s federal Judge Sylvia Rambo blocked a class action suit by some 2,400 central Pennsylvania downwinders, claiming not enough radiation had escaped to harm anyone. But after 35 years, no one knows how much radiation escaped or where it went. Three Mile Island's owners have quietly paid millions to downwinders victims in exchange for gag orders.
Sylvia Rambo federal judge dismissed the "amount of radioactivity released was not so much harm to the people" and a class action lawsuit by two thousand four hundred nuclear power plant downwind residents of central Pennsylvania in the 1980s. But I still do not know the amount of radioactivity after 35 years now, has been released at how much actually, wherever you what went shed. Holders and individuals of Three Mile Island nuclear power plant, has paid hundreds of millions of dollars in hush money secretly downwind victims.
At Chernobyl, a compendium of more than 5,000 studies has yielded an estimated death toll of more than 1,000,000 people.
In addition, the estimated death toll as many as one million people to be due to the compendium also 5,000 more than was done in the study of Chernobyl.
The radiation effects on youngsters in downwind Belarus and Ukraine have been horrific. According to Mangano, some 80 percent of the "Children of Chernobyl" born downwinders since the accident have been harmed by a wide range of impacts ranging from birth defects and thyroid cancer to long-term heart, respiratory and mental illnesses. The findings mean that just one in five young downwinders can be termed healthy.
Effects of radioactive contamination in young people of Ukraine and Belarus (Chernobyl accident) downwind terrible. According to Mangano said, since the accident, about 80% of the "Children of Chernobyl" downwind birth has been allowed to develop injury thyroid cancer and birth defects, heart long-term, respiratory system and such as mental illness . The results of the survey, young downwinders say it's health has been reported that it is one that stood in the five.
Physicians for Social Responsibility and the German chapter of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War have warned of parallel problems near Fukushima.
Germany chapter "International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War" (International doctors working for the Prevention of Nuclear War) is also the same problem in the Fukushima nuclear power plant near "Physicians for Social Responsibility" and (doctors to promote social responsibility) I have been warning against the occurrence of.
The United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR) has recently issued reports downplaying the disaster's human impacts. UNSCEAR is interlocked with the United Nations' International Atomic Energy Agency, whose mandate is to promote atomic power. The IAEA has a long -term controlling gag order on UN findings about reactor health impacts. For decades UNSCEAR and the World Health Organization have run protective cover for the nuclear industry's widespread health impacts. Fukushima has proven no exception.
"On the Effects of Atomic Radiation United Nations Scientific Committee (UNSCEAR)" was recently published a report that downplay the human impact of the nuclear disaster. UNSCEAR has been cooperation, "the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)," and the United Nations that mission (management) and promoting the use of nuclear power but, IAEA will be forced to gag law for a long time on a survey of the United Nations related to health problems of nuclear power have. UNSCEAR and "World Health Organization (WHO)", has the aim of hiding the effects on a wide range of health of the nuclear industry for decades, but Fukushima is no exception.
In response, Physicians for Social Responsibility and the German International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War have issued a ten-point rebuttal, warning the public of the UN's compromised credibility. The disaster is "ongoing" say the groups, and must be monitored for decades. "Things could have turned for the worse" if winds had been blowing toward Tokyo rather than out to sea (and towards America).
On the other hand, the "Physicians for Social Responsibility" of Germany "International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War" to expand the objection over the 10-point, uncover the fact that distortion of the United Nations, has been issued a warning to people. Nuclear disaster in Fukushima is "ongoing", it is necessary for decades of future monitoring. "Instead (and America) sea surface is (at the time of the accident) wind direction, and you were Tokyo area, the situation was even worse."
There is on-going risk from irradiated produce, and among site workers whose doses and health impacts are not being monitored. Current dose estimates among workers as well as downwinders are unreliable, and special notice must be taken of radiation's severe impacts on the human embryo .
Such as the nuclear accident convergence workers health and radiation dose and distribution of food that has been exposed to radiation is not monitored. Not only workers, cumulative dose estimates of population to which went flow of radioactive particles can not be trusted. It must also be considered serious consequences of radiation to the fetus in particular. These are the risk of progressive current.
UNSCEAR's studies on background radiation are also "misleading," say the groups, and there must be further study of genetic radiation effects as well as "non-cancer diseases." The UN assertion that "no discernible radiation-related health effects are expected among exposed members "is" cynical, "say the groups. They add that things were made worse by the official refusal to distribute potassium iodide, which might have protected the public from thyroid impacts from massive releases of radioactive I-131.
Physician group has warned the "misleading" is also the study of UNSCEAR on natural radioactivity. It is appealing not only effects on gene activity, the need for studies of the effects of the disease other than cancer. Physician group has said claims of the United Nations, "the health effects of the accident convergence workers exposed to radioactivity is not expected" and the "cruelty". Situation was further aggravated by refusing officially the distribution of KI (potassium iodide). And if it is distributed, it was possible to protect the people from the body ingestion of a large affect radioactive iodine 131 in the thyroid gland.
Overall, the horrific news from Fukushima can only get worse. Radiation from three lost cores is still being carried into the Pacific. Management of spent fuel rods in pools suspended in the air and scattered around the site remains fraught with danger.
What kind of news from Fukushima horribly, I'm just telling the deterioration of the situation. Radioactivity is released from the reactor was destroyed in the 3 groups still, I have flowed into the Pacific Ocean. Yes air (5 floor) still (No. 4 groups) spent fuel pool, he remains precariously along with the management of radioactive waste (at the time of the explosion of the reactor) was sown rose everywhere in the nuclear power plant premises.
The pro-nuclear Shinzo Abe regime wants to reopen Japan's remaining 48 reactors. It has pushed hard for families who fled the disaster to re-occupy irradiated homes and villages.
Shinzo Abe administration of the primary advocates, are trying to re-operate the nuclear reactor of 48 groups of the rest of Japan. I'm trying to forcibly Kiso and villages of residence remains contaminated, the family who fled from the nuclear disaster.
But Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and the plague of death and disease now surfacing near Fukushima make it all too clear that the human cost of such decisions continues to escalate-with our children suffering first and worst.
But now, disease and serious death (due to radioactive contamination), which has revealed the Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and is getting surfaced in Fukushima. Determination of such null village's what someone in the most cruel things the kids more than anything.
