  • Some of them was hospitalized
  • Most are getting better after receiving treatment
  • Number of patients may increase further
  • Workers reported symptoms such as high fever, diarrhea and vomiting on Thursday

Stomach flu outbreak hits 52 workers at Fukushima nuclear plant, AP, Dec. 17, 2011:

  • [Tepco] said Saturday that a norovirus outbreak is suspected
  • Three of the workers have tested positive for the virus, a common form of flu

    Yes it must be the flu no other reason for nausea while working at a nuclear plant that is highly contaminated

    From the mayo clinic website
    Radiation sickness – Initial signs and symptoms
    The initial signs and symptoms of treatable radiation sickness are usually nausea and vomiting. The amount of time between exposure and when these symptoms develop is an indicator of how much radiation a person has absorbed.

    After the first round of signs and symptoms, a person with radiation sickness may have a brief period with no apparent illness, followed by the onset of new, more serious symptoms.

    Why do they bother reporting anything if it’s always 90% lies. Yeah fine, touch of the flu they’ll be ready to work again tomorrow…everything’s fine!

  • No surprise here:

    In the past month Ive been finding outside sources from private universities to bring light to the incidents unfolding in fukushima Japan.

    According to my source 83 year old: Ron Luppe (a naval biologist and meteorologist. With degrees in: Russian, German, Biology and Meteorology). Recent storm patterns following the months after the crisis in Japan are very rare, and unusual. His opinions were that the charged ionizing elements in addition to natural weather pressure systems Cause extreme energy fields inside the cloud layer.
    Resulting in a masse of tornadoes, and storm super cell systems ripping across the united states Midwest…

    He further tells me that the storm systems this year were almost unbelievable In regards to his 60+ year history analyzing storm systems of the United states mainland. With the only explanations being a extreme biological change to the area effected by these storm systems.

    The conclusions are from a very accredited man, who is a retired naval man and ex teacher.


  • A main fact to consider is that likely 80% of all fallout from the fukushima nuclear crisis resided in the pacific ocean. While 20% contaminated the entire northern hemisphere for months.

    SO If (and we are) seeing global low level contamination of food, soil and air. Consider the affects that the oceanic, and botanic ecosystems are experiencing.

    Massive Worm Dieoff In 3 States

    Submitted by northstar on Wed, 06/08/2011 – 13:24

    Earthworms Across Tri-State Turned Up Dead Thursday

    POSTED: 4:20 pm EDT June 2, 2011

    CINCINNATI — People across the Tri-State awoke to an unusual sight Thursday — thousands of earthworms lying dead on sidewalks and porches.

    WLWT was first alerted to the issue by Rick in West Chester.

    “This appears to have started sometime yesterday afternoon, as I do not remember seeing them yesterday morning,” Rick wrote.

    Shortly after Rick’s email, WLWT reporter Brian Hamrick began taking photos from his home in Florence, where thousands of worms coated the sidewalks of his neighborhood.
    After one post on Facebook, more than 90 people said they had seen the same thing, from Fairfield to Mount Airy, Pleasant Ridge, Independence and Sardinia. WLWT even got confirmation from its sister TV station in Louisville that they had a few hundred dead worms on their sidewalk.
    WLWT went in search of an answer as to why so many worms died all at once.

    Lee Townsend, an entomologist at the University of Kentucky, said there could be three reasons: the recent heavy rains, mating season or acidic soils. uhm… Radiation?

    With no rain in the last week, it’s likely that isn’t the culprit. Acidic soil is also unlikely because the worm deaths were reported over such a large area. 3 states?

    “As they come to the surface to pair off and mate in the spring, that’s a reason that gets them up and moving around,” Townsend said. “The worms come out and get caught on things that are hard for them to crawl across, like sidewalks and driveways, and sometimes the streets.”

    • There were NO EARTHWORMS out on the pavement all summer, following rains, which is very unusual. I didnt make the connection until I was planting some bulbs in the fall before the frost…all the worms were dead the first 2 inches of soil. This was next to a retention pond that 4 parking lots that sit above me empty into. The last batch of ducks born on the pond in August had 9 babies…one had a small wing. Only one reached maturity.

      • There was a strange disappearance of all the cockroaches and crickets that live in our yard and try and get inside our house in the summer because of the Phoenix heat.

        The cockroaches live in the garden but in the summer they come onto the patio and try and get in (UGH).

        I don’t like cockroaches but hate pesticides more so I don’t spray.

        The cockroaches disappeared in late July/early August.

        I have no idea whether it is coincidence

        It was strange. I thought cockroaches were supposed to outlive humans in a nuclear war…

      That’s fascinating. Agreed with Xdrfox, worth documenting that. It would be great to be able to ask someone from the Ukraine or Belarus what happened to their worms after the accident. (Perhaps someone from Japan can tell us something about that now too)

      I just did a google search on the subject, but it only pulled up some articles saying that worms in lakes near Chernobyl were studied and they swapped from asexual reproduction to more sexual reproduction. Presumably that means they have a designed in ability to reproduce sexually to better weed out mutations when exposed to radiation.

      Ironically Pravda means “truth” in Russian, though this article claims the effects on worms are the only impact anyone has noticed on the flora and fauna. I’ve seen a video interview between a bird scientist who regularly visits the exclusion zone and Helen Coldicott. In that interview he said some species had disappeared altogether from the exclusion zone and all species were weaker. But anyway, here is the worm article. Not much too it, but its about worms in Chernobyl…

  • James2

    To see it like that looks really scary.

    I would like to compare it to similar events in previous years. The earth is so large that it would not surprise me if this is not all that unusual.

    Tacoma do you have any data to suggest that these events are one-off and never happened at all before or not?

    • I agree with James that we just don’t know how frequently die offs occur but we should definitely look for patterns.

      The die off of blackbirds was actually caused by legal poisoning to “protect” rice crops.

      Die-offs in gulf can be connected to the BP gulf oil spill in some cases…

      What is “natural,” what is caused by human pollution, what is caused specifically by radiation???

    • Radio VicFromOregon

      Read Silent Spring by Rachel Carson. These die off are now considered normal. They are a relatively new phenomenon cross species unless an extinction event is occurring, which most biologist agree has been happening for the past 45,000 years, or since humans began to dominate, but, given the excelerated amount of recent environmental and habitat degradation, the cause of the die off is human induced poisoning, starving, exploiting, and stressing various species. They succumb to disease more easily now, if not die outright from toxins. The challenge in tracking this is that few studies will ever go so far as to link human behavior to the increased stressors that force a species to succumb to a natural disease, and little more attention is paid to the direct effects of habitat loss, poisons, radiation, and over harvesting. The information black out at Fukushima and the public’s lackadaisical response is just one small example of how nearly all human societies now purposely ignore their impact upon their environments.

      • Fall out man!

        Radioactive fallout does affect all species. If those die off events are more frequent than normal, and affect a variety of species, that could well point to Fukushima.

        Most mutations are so minor as to be impossible for natural selection to weed out. They just accumulate as genetic load. Each generation carries 100 to 300 more mutations than the last. An individual mutation will be only slightly detrimental. But collectively, as the mutations build up, it leads a species to extinction.

        Anything that increases the mutation rate brings all species closer to extinction. Natural selection slows down that destruction, but it can only weed out mutations that are obviously deletarious. Most mutations just build up. Individually they cannot be selected upon. We really are in the bondage of decay.

        In that sense, Fukushima’s radiation really is an ELE (extinction level event). It brings every creature on the planet closer to extinction. Without outside intervention, eventually all life would die out due to genetic decay.

        Short article on the subject…

        Book on the subject by John C Sanford, inventor of the Gene gun, on which the genetic engineering industry was formed.

        Note that when this concept is grasped, its very clear just what a disaster Nuclear energy is. Even correctly operating plants raise mutation rates around them from the emissions they make under normal conditions. That increased genetic decay is irreversible. For that reason alone, nuclear energy should be abandoned immediately. It brings all life closer to extinction through accumulated genetic decay.

        All life is slowly dying out due to genome decay. That is the dirty little secret of population genetics. Fukushima just took all life closer to that extinction point.

    Thanks, emmy, for all of your work.

  • Grampybone Grampybone

    The workers who last as long as they are and have made it home from the plant alive are lucky to have the time left to spend on this earth away from that horrible radiation. When your boots melt you know it’s time to get out of the water. Good thing you brought your trusty sock to wrap your dosimeter with. 54 people at the plant just got blasted with enough radiation to induce sickness and TEPCO does not have the balls to tell the truth. In the months leading up to now the total record of workers reported sick and dead is now at 58 known cases of poisoning. No need to beat around the bush here, but we all know there are more dying. Have not heard from Mochizuki’s Fukushima diary recently here on Enenews. I hope and pray for his health. His insight and reporting is an important window into the activities within TEPCO’s facility.

  • Don’t forget the temp workers TEPCO uses. Enenews reported this months ago. Temp workers recruited from poor neighborhoods usually ex cons, alcoholics and junkies. They do their work collect their pay and radiation and crawl back into the wood work. We will never know the true number of deaths and illnesses suffered through working at the disaster.

    • Fall out man!

      True, and if a worker who cannot “disappeared” drops dead, the case can always be classified as a non-work related death. Like the worker who died of a heart attack after cleaning sludge from drains recently. According to Tepco, that’s nothing to do with radiation.

      Of course, heart attack and stroke were the main killers after Chernobyl. (still are) But the only effects the Nuke industry will consider are rare cancers, and even then they debate it. Its like a bizarre kid’s game. “You can’t count that one because the plant didn’t actually vaporise the guy on nationwide TV!”.

      Early in the crisis I remember Enenews reporting Tepco’s admission that they had “lost track” of over 100 workers who they could not locate for medical follow up. Another report said that sick workers were held as virtual prisoners.

      Here is a video documentary about how workers were treated by TEPCO and the Japanese government BEFORE this crisis. Obviously it will be worse now. It delves into the fact that the Yakuza are used to find disposable workers. (something also covered in comments in previous threads here)

    With who knows what, that is being thrown into our environment, we may see more radiation sickness and death earlier than expected.

    We need health care for everyone, not just for our officials, and for those who can afford it.

  • moonshellblue moonshellblue

    Read this yesterday which verifies the reason the workers are getting sick:ONGOING DANGER 6: MORE HYBRID INFLUENZAS. Andrei Sakharov, the Soviet atomic scientist-turned-critic, wrote in his book ‘Memoirs,’ published last decade, that in the late 1950s he had suggested ‘that a global increase in mutations of bacteria and viruses…might have been an important factor in the spread of such diseases as diphtheria in the nineteenth century, or the influenza epidemic, and that low-level radiation might further increase the rate of mutations.’ What Sakhavrov had implied is that the introduction of man-made sources of radioactivity has aggravated the situation, contributing to the rise of increased mutations of living organisms, included viruses. Radioactive fallout – from the ‘Cold War’ or Fukushima – could accelerate the rise of mutant pathogens and antigenic shifts in influenzas.” At least this solidifies my suspicions concerning the recent outbreak among the Fukushima workers.

    🙁 This is so sad, look what we have done. The human race, we can’t be trusted…..


  • Geek_on_the_wing

    The operator of the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant said Saturday that a norovirus outbreak is suspected. Fifty-two workers assigned to the effort have been treated at a hospital over the past three days. Three of the workers have tested positive for the virus, a common form of flu.

    This is disappointingly shoddy reporting by MSNBC. I expect better from you.

    There is no such thing as a “stomach flu.” Influenza, or “flu” for short, is a respiratory disease caused by viruses in the taxonomical family Orthomyxoviridae, commonly and collectively known as the “influenza viruses,” which are completely unrelated to the noroviruses.

    Yes, a lot of people do incorrectly use the term “stomach flu” to describe any digestive disturbance involving diarrhea and vomiting. But they are wrong. Noroviruses are not “a common form of flu.” The two are not related at all.

    Also, Norovirus is not a single virus, but rather the taxonomical name of an entire genus of related, single-stranded RNA viruses, collectively referred to as noroviruses, that can cause gastroenteritis.

  • UN Secretary General Dr Kofi Anan “Consequences of Chernobyl do not fade away, but actually grow over time and in many ways, become more intense.” D. Zupka, UN representative of UN humanitarian affairs UN – OCHA. Both of these gentlemen agree and say that there are 9 million victims from Chernobyl as of 2001, and the tragedy is only beginning. This disaster will be with us for generations to come.

    Children are dying; Chernobyl radiation effects have been extensively studied by many independent scientists around the world. Here is what they found. Children are affected in many ways, and the following is a brief summary:

    Increase in Spontaneous abortions
    Increase in mortality
    Increase in number of ill and feeble newborns
    Increase in number of genetic defects and diseases, total of over 2,000 possible
    Increase in number of congenital malformations
    Increase in incidence of cancers of all kinds
    Increase in impaired mental development
    Increase in psychiatric diseases
    Increase in alterations of immune system, weakening
    Increase in abnormal hormone balances
    Increase in diseases of the cardiovascular system
    Increase in abnormal slow growth of children
    Increase in abnormal exhaustion of children
    Increase in delayed recovery from diseases
    Increase in premature aging effects

    According to Mr Yablokov presentation at international conference of nuclear experts regarding Chenobyl, including UN, IAEA, etc.


  • Let us assum 9 million victims and more coming from Chernobyl, for the next billions of years. The pro nuke industry folks say only 35 people or so died as a result of Chernobyl. That is like saying the moon is made of cheese, it is so laughably ignorantly in denial of what is happening in REALITY.

    Why do we have to keep counting past 9 million total or so today, and keep adding body counts for the next billions of years?
