Washington State Department of Health (.pdf), June 16, 2014:

  • Anencephaly Cluster Investigation — Central Washington, 2010-2014 [CDC: Congenital anomaly resulting in babies missing parts of brain/skull… almost all die shortly after birth]
  • Environmental Exposure Hypotheses considered by DOH: […] Radiation from Fukushima release
  • Radiation from Fukushima: […] No reported increase in anencephaly after Fukushima release along west coast of US

Fetal Deaths, 1992-2012 — Washington State Department of Health, Oct. 2013:

In 2011, Washington had its highest levels ever recorded (1992-2012) for:

  • Total fetal deaths — 20% above 2010record high
  • Deaths via congenital abnormalities (such as anencephaly) — 60% above 2010, record high
  • Deaths via complications of placenta, etc. — 20% above 2010, record high
  • Levels returned to historical norms in 2012

    Not the radiation so much as the toxic ELEments in the bio system now, soon the real radiological nightmare begins.

  • Wow! That is staggering and sadly only the begining 🙁

  • zogerke zogerke

    This would be great data to get for other cities, and other states, too. CA. PA. NM…..

    • Time Is Short Time Is Short

      We'll never see any of this. They're keeping track, but we'll never see it. From here on out, it will only be anecdotal evidence.

      But I'm surrounded by people with cancer, all within the last three years. Horrifying.

        We could and can do anything better than the government ..there are ways .
        We cannot sit back and be powerless complaining that the gov that we know lies to us all the time by fudging data , we must do something .
        We have identified the problem .
        Let's do what's in our power to indentfy the solutions

        This is just a general statement

        • Radio Radio

          This is a generally extremely important statement, CSE. I do support certain nuclear watchdog groups, especially ones with doctors or peace protestors. I'm thinking that since i don't have money, i could help one or two with some grant writing. I can't start a project right now, couldn't do it justice, but, i can contribute some work skill.

          • clamshellernh clamshellernh

            We start by educating ourselves and the public
            You do so here every day ..

          • clamshellernh clamshellernh

            I agree radio I just finished the book done in part by the union of concerned scientists called Fukushima the story of a nuclear disaster I learned a great deal on how the NPPs work structurally and the whys and if they only changed this perhaps this may not have happened ?

            at Harvard university anyways , they have 60 or so libraries .
            I have been blessed with a few , but I want to get into a library that has info on health and human services it's an enormous agency . I find that data runs a few years late in most cases . The CDC , and many others fall under this umbrella .

            I would love to have a grant written to study the Heath effects of the homeless in the boston area that were outside al days every day when this plant exploded .

            They called it kennel cough too

            The shelters were filled with sick people with pneumonia .

            More than any other year folks noticed .

            • Radio Radio

              CSE, any chance it can be highly implicated that conditions such as radiation created a breeding ground for the pneumonia that winter – a citing of both high radiation in the area, high pneumonia incidence, somewhat normal outside temperatures? Another comparison city would be good. It could all be descriptive, but, be a proposal for further study. Be great if a thesis student took it on if you could get the initial labor of love done to bring awareness to the issue. If you can write up an outline, i could easily write a grant for this if we presented it as a concept project as a springboard for further study. Of course, you already know, but, for others reading this, if something hasn't been funded before, it needs to be vetted as an area of concern. Solid evidence is not expected since little exists initially, but, some clear causal agent or clear public need has to be drawn for future folks to make a proposal for funds. So, an exploratory project. Maybe enough to cover some of your costs of time. I'd be honored to give it a try.

              • clamshellernh clamshellernh

                It was an extremely rainy spring that year as well in the north east . Folks that are homeless go into shelters at night and are left to fend for themselves in the day .

                I spoke with the org Heath care for the homeless a few months back on this and was supposed to get back to her .

                Of course this is a hunch of mine .

                I was told once too that any good statistics major can make any study come out the way they desire .

          Wow! That's scary! Our rude So. CA neighbors (in their 50's and 60's)all seem just fine year after year. One lady was a head of nursing at a hospital here. She poo's poo's the idea of a radiation problem, drinks the tap water, and has put a couple of healthy pets to sleep (one that we offered to adopt). I do see fewer elderly people shopping in the stores. Although we are 84 and 66, we do not go to the senior center here because we believe that they may poison the food (as the critters in the park would not touch the bread we brought home and gave them.) Yes, these are the last evil days.
          Please eat almonds and drink almond milk because they contain a natural cyanide that kills cancer cells. Boron removes radiation. Blessings in your fight with The Big C!

          • Many are drinking deep at the fountain of the radkoolade, and believe nuclear energy will 'save' everyone..

            More rads for all, double up on the dosages. If chemicals and radiation is not enough, add GMO's and hormones too. Throw in a little mountain Du and pesticides, plus fungicides for fun. Oh and a dash of heavy metals too..

            People are not getting enough yet.. they will get healthy only if they get much more radiation, according to Anne Coultier on Fox News.

            So TEPCO is doing their best to honor her wishes and medical advice.

    • We Not They Finally

      zogerke, speaking of Pennsylvania: We were horrified some months when a good friend of ours from Pittsburgh was suddenly diagnosed with TWO cancers: lung for a non-smoker and thyroid, which is still a rare cancer. But the time they operated on the second cancer, it was stage four.

      We were doubly alarmed because this was NOT the West Coast, but rather Pittsburgh. But just now we listened to a recent interview with Leuren Moret who says that you don't have to be on the West Coast to get badly hit — that with the initial plume, a city in Florida PLUS PITTSBURGH got a ghastly dose.

      Our friend is doing surprisingly well now (knock on wood,) but our anger — not so well.

        • tnnelson tnnelson

          I am very concerned about the almonds from California. My neighbor who is an electrical engineer said to stay away from California produce. He even to me to NOT put the onions I had purchased into my compost in Florida. He fells California is contaminated from Fukushima. Not good since so much produce is from California.

          • obewanspeaks obewanspeaks

            tnnelson, great points, but sorry to say everything is now manmade radioactive contaminated everywhere and the problem is now world wide. Some places may have a little less and some areas much more. Florida has several operating Nuclear Reactors and all of them are leaking radiation contamination into the ecosystem inside Florida.

            We here have posted many maps and fallout graphs from the initial 2053 bomb tests and other recent Nuclear Power Plant Meltdown fall out patterns. The back ground radiation readings are climbing now quickly worldwide, and if we are up say 100% to 600% since 1945 over natural background, it indicates that none of us can hide or leave behind the damage already done and it will continue to bioaccumulate while increasing worldwide.

            All of our food, water sources and air are now suspect for un-sequestered manmade radiation contamination isotopes and it's purely a numbers game now as to which one/type of bad hot radioactive isotope you/I/we might consume unknowingly from any manmade Nuclear Produced source now sadly found everywhere. 🙁

            • Time Is Short Time Is Short

              Everything we eat – every single thing – contains lethal toxins, watered with fracking chemicals and fertilized with enriched uranium and plutonium. Most of it is genetically modified, meaning it will give us softball-sized tumors in a few years.

              And the levels of contamination are getting stronger daily.

              Thank your government for allowing this to happen.

            tnnelson, I can understand your concern but just WHAT are you going to EAT? We use lemons and limes from our trees daily to also fight the radiation. Now, there is also a BAD BUG here threatening trees like the almond, citrus, and avocado! As for me, I'm going to eat and enjoy these as long as I can here on Yahweh's green earth!

  • bo bo

    Just a reminder -in continuation of what was being discussed in the previous Hanford thread – 'fetal deaths' and abortions should be studied in conjunction. The real numbers are buried between the 2 statistics.

    • Oh wow….and of course miscarriages (which both my daughter-in-law and niece had, before finally achieving a successful pregnancy, wouldn't have been part of any records either.

      This chart is valuable and the additional non-recorded implications are enormous!

      • Radio Radio

        Yep. We need an archive.

        • Oh BTW…I tried to get in a thank you to you on the other thread but Enews reply box wouldn't work properly. 🙂 Keep up the good work you're doing and maybe all the anedotctal(sp) stories will add to the hard facts which are such separated little pieces of info and limited official reports.

          I have a few midwife and birthing center friends who had commented to each other about the number of *their ladies* having numerous (non-recorded) spontaneous misscarriages and the saddness of women who each time thought it was hopfully the pregancy that was going to *take*. It was just the talk going around the circles, since we were all well aware of eco-pollution, Hanford, other NPPs and that fukushima had suffered the huge earthquake and tsunami. We didn't know any authentic radiation details at that point but friends had already decided to stop eating Pacific seafood until we heard more.

          • clamshellernh clamshellernh

            My experience of the second wave of feminism was in our kitchens at the table where we shared our stories and a movement was rekindled and took off like wildfire, one groups of friends igniting my groups of friends igniting another's, and from tat movement we got rape stats, and abuse stats, and infant mortality stats, and Our Bodies Ourselves, and…so, sitting around chawing to chaw is unfamiliar and a bit unpleasant because it feels like being a race horse in the gate 😉 I tell ya, i can write the grant for this, but, i can't do the other work anymore. All the data would technically be anecdotal, but, the focus of the research COULD be on how to go about reaching these women, and putting truth to power.

    • Radio Radio

      bo, exactly. These, in fact, if i understand my Caldicott correctly, are where the biggest numbers should be, right? Ovum, sperm and fetus viability are the first to go because they are the most vulnerable DNA cells or stages of cellular life. And, those species that reproduce more quickly or change their cells more rapidly, show evidence of the biggest damage or die offs because they have the greatest opportunity for damage. Birth defects would be those that managed to survive, sad as that sounds. Great point, bo. Helen would love to be reading this thread! Make her feel like her work is sinking in.

            Radio, here's what I found about the WA counties.

            http://www.doh.wa.gov/DataandStatisticalReports/VitalStatisticsData/FetalDeathData/FetalDeathTablesbyTopic.aspx

            Click on Fetal Death Data radio button for the reports, as downloads, which are listed below.
            Table G-1 is invaluable as to causes of death.
            Table G-2 is by county for the entire state.
            Table G-3 is deaths by cause.

            Table G-2,
            By WA county; highest deaths per year, compared to 2011;
            Benton Co. 2011-12 high 2003-18
            Franklin 2011-11 high 2006-12
            Yakima Co. 2011-35 high 2010-36
            King Co. 2011-160 high 2008-163

            Looking at G-1 "Complications of Placenta, Cord.." the figure for 2011 is 172 babies. In 2005 it was 171, in 2008 it was 160 babies. Average for 10 years prior = 140 babies.

            CDC report above states:
            "Babies born to Hispanic mothers are at an increased risk for anencephaly.3 Reasons for the increased risk among Hispanic mothers are not well understood."

            Other than that, I got nothing.

              is that
              They are exposed to far more dangerous pesticides and other things esp if they are poverty stricken I am assuming . And the assault on the immune system may be so great that radiologic damage is showing itself sooner than most ??

                Of interest as well is what the cause was in the year of 2012 .
                I will look at it further ..Ty

              • sally

                Clam.., the entire area from the southern Yakima Valley to the Northern end of Okanogan Valley, the Canadian border is agricultural. Tree fruits of any kind. These orchards are sprayed quite heavy from spring to early fall and all of the population is subjected to the over spray. Apples, I hate to say it, are the most contaminated fruit you can buy.

                http://www.ctvnews.ca/health/dirty-dozen-list-apples-top-2014-list-of-most-pesticide-contaminated-produce-1.1799569

                Hispanics comprise the major population in the Valley's and the remainder are non Hispanic/whites. Three Hispanic groups are represented; the residents (immigrants who became American citizens
                ), those with green cards (seasonal workers) and those who are migrant workers, without green cards (illegal immigrants). The latter two groups have little to no health care. Illegal immigrants have no health care, except for underground doctors who care and won't report them to ICE. The fear of being deported is overwhelming as a lot of Green Cards are forged and they won't seek health care because of the forms you have to fill out, exposing themselves to deportation.

                The level of income in these areas are some of the lowest in the state, with poverty and substandard housing. A weakened immune system would be a gateway for radiological poisoning.

                How many mothers gave birth to a still born, with it's skull half missing and were buried in the desert? Exposing yourself to deportation is not an option.

      • Yes, you are very wise, and that is where the numbers will be VERY LARGE…

        Some of it will show up in reduced birth numbers one year later.

    • clamshellernh clamshellernh

      As far as further research is concerned

      If you do a google groups search or yahoo discussion groups you can potentially find a treasure trove of information regarding any kind of birth defect .

      As a mother if I had a child that was sick I would go to the ends of the earth to dig up anything I could find regarding my child's health . I would consider anything too .

      You can also start any kind of group you would like and share it with other groups out there . I have witnessed many groups that are soleley put together to do research .

          Radio, I think you may find that such a group already exists; try Physicians for Social Responsibility, who may already align with one. see: http://www.psr.org, one of their offshoots can be found at http://www.psr.org/nuclear-bailout/

          There is another report here on birth defects: http://www.epa.gov/ace/ace3draft/draft_pdfs/ACE3BirthDefectsReviewPackage3-02-11/pdf

          In the 10 years from 1999-2009 the following chart indicates that the level of ozone fell from approximately 67% to 50% http://www.epa.gov/ace/env_contaminant/criteria_pollutants.html
          yet CFCS, which were blamed as the culprit, had already been banned.

          The fall in the ozone layers and the breech in the magnetosphere allow the entry of cosmic radiation which together with nuclear strays, (both of which contribute gamma rays), is alarming.

Moment of embarrassment. Well, no point in reinventing the wheel as the saying goes. You've just saved me lots of work! But, i think i will offer to help on a grant.

          • Radio Radio

            Btw, i agree that the ozone thing should always get a look-see by us. I had a teacher in a science class that took us through the whole issue back in the early 70's on the CFCs debate. Folks thought he was over the edge, turns out he was correct. I subscribe to much of the core of the electric universe theory as much as i subscribe to any one theory of anything, and i am really hoping that the magnetosphere has some as yet undiscovered feedback and repair system. Say it's so. Otherwise, i'd hate to see us become the next Mars if we irradiate, pollute, carbon bake, and let in too many cosmic rays 😉 Let's just hope life has a chance to adapt.

      sally, that they could for a whole lot of taxpayer money. But, that still wouldn't allow conclusions to be drawn, though it could give folks an idea of where to start looking. The way that i understand data collection of this sort to work is tat someone agrees to collect the data and keep it. They create a form of questions and use whatever software for arranging the data they collect into various fields or items. They might even cross reference some of those field depending upon the software. Universities tend to have more current software and governments tend to have very outdated software. They not only need to update but then train thousands of people on how to use the new stuff. Think DMV. A nightmare and takes a decade to bring everyone up to speed. The creator also needs to know or think about what any researcher or investigator might want to know so they know what fields to create, etc. So, hopefully all those people are talking to each other, which is actually very rare i reality. It's all very compartmentalized which creates communication barriers throughout the system. There's no state researchers per se paid to research just one thing, but, rather universities or public service departments that get limited funding to do limited things. They get halfway through a project & realize they don't have enough resources, won't get more and start to cut back on their expectations and, sadly, the usefulness of their data. That IS our data system in the…

        Yes radio some very good information on how studies are done .
        I have done studies with the help of some Harvard students on homeless women and it is a science .
        and for some reason the number 37 comes to mind

        We did 37 forms with a set number of questions to get a true number of women that were experiencing or experienced some issues we wanted to get out for changing the disparity and the governments way of allocating funds , that exists with beds in shelters and how they need changing for women ..like I say my hands are all over the place ..
        Hmm

          Well, i was on the delivery of services end and we deeply appreciated having people like you taking the time to collect and work with the data, which we could also get back from you and then write better grants and make better pitches and also direct our services in more useful ways 😉 If you'd not been in that process, it is hard for folks to understand why in such a data rich society, it can be difficult to find information. Not only does it take enormous hours and effort to collect and make sense of without bias, but, then it needs to be used and get passed all the societal barriers and cultural priorities. I'm convinced the cure for cancer lays on a shelf somewhere collecting dust. We might be data soaked, but, there is more data collected on what we last bought than on how many are marginalized in harm's way.

          That's odd, i'm dyslexic, too when writing or typing, but, more with letters than with numbers, but, i can't remember either half the time. Double checking everything is quite tedious!

            I am dyslexic with numbers not words , that's a completely different matter .

            Another perk from the occupy movement .

        Radio at Harvard anyway you can get money for studies, all you have to do is a proposal ..it starts at 1000 dollars .

        You can also get money from crowd sharing sites that do humanitarian work

        Getting into university libraries is the balls ..

      • sally

        Good point Radio, what I will do is write the state and see if they have a regional/county/hospital/inter-agency/outsourced research firm/program that could break down the statics. It seems reasonable, as a tax paying citizen, to preposition the question and explain to me why they put these statics in this format.

        Will post what I find or don't find.

          sally, thanks for taking that on! I will check back in the comments log to find your answer. I'm only here chunks at a time and will be taking off again soon to get back to work, but, i promise to check. I'm still jazzed about looking at the trees. Now, as i think about it, what trees? I'm seeing rolling hill after rolling hill until you get farther north. I was once blessed to drive through there during the Geminids meteor showers. You could know where the hills were in the deep night by where the stars stopped. A falling star every minute! I will never forget that.

    SEVERE BIRTH DEFECTS SOAR IN WASHINGTON STATE; FUKUSHIMA RADIATION TAKES HOLD | Pakalert Press

    Radiation released into the atmosphere by the Fukushima, Japan nuclear accident has begun taking a human toll via newborn babies. A cluster of severe genetic birth defects, 4 times the national average, has emerged in a 3 county area around Yakima, Washington on the US west coast. Local Doctors are “stunned” and cannot find a reason for cluster of deformed babies; others know it is from Fukushima Radiation which saturated Washington in March, 2011. This will get worse. Much worse.

      Seems like the fallout swept through from Fukushima and made an impact in 2011 as it was also noted there was a lack of wildlife present on the Pacific Northwest Coastline. Impacts such as this can be quick and brutal on the initial contact/absorption rate based on the types of radiation contamination released and flowing through these regions.

      Nature would abandon all unnatural/mutated births in the wildlife sectors allowing them to perish.

      Starfish on the other hand appear to have no choice what so ever..they are just gone.

  • tbg

    I think many times when women lose early term pregnancies due to radiation (or other persistent environmental factors) they don't even know they were pregnant, as the zygote is lost in the first week and so seemed to just be a late cycle. Of course no way to track those numbers, but Washington State is definitely doing their best to obscure the data.

    Another thing I think about sometimes is that Hanford requires constant maintenance and upkeep to maintain operation. If Fuku goes to majorly to shit, Washington is a primary contact point for Japans air and water, and if Hanford was abandoned (like by the contractors) things would go downhill for Washington quick.

    The implications of the following has me near speechless,
    From the Consolidated List of Chemicals Subject to the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know – Act.

    "EPCRA Section 302 Extremely Hazardous Substances (EHSs)
    The consolidated list does not include all chemicals subject to the reporting requirements in EPCRA sections 311 and 312.
    Those hazardous chemicals, for which safety data sheets (MSDS) must be developed under the Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200) are identified by broad criteria, rather than by enumeration
    There are over 500,000 products that satisfy the criteria."

    from the following list, I randomly chose just one – CYANOGEN.
    http://www.safty.duke.edu/envprograms/Docs/title3_oct_2006.pdf

    A short rundown on CYANOGEN.
    "Like other inorganic cyanides, cyanogen is very toxic, as it readily undergoes reduction to cyanide; which poisons the cytochrome c oxidase complex, thus interrupting the mitrochondrial electron transfer chain.

    Cyanogen produces the second hottest known natural flame (after carbon subnitride) with a temperature of over 4525Deg. C when it burns in oxygen.

    It attained importance with the growth of the fertilizer industry in the late 19th century and it is still an important intermediate in the production of many fertilizers."

    Has it become radioactive yet??

    A new study set for publication tomorrow in the International Journal of Health Services found there may be a connection between an estimated excess of 14,000 deaths in the U.S. and the radioactive fallout from explosions at Fukushima nuclear reactors in Japan, an argument in direct conflict with reports from the Environmental Protection Agency.

    In the 14 weeks after Fukushima fallout arrived in the U.S., deaths reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention rose 4.46 percent from the same period in 2010, or roughly 14,000 deaths. The rise in reported deaths after Fukushima was largest among U.S. infants under age one. The 2010-2011 increase for infant deaths in the spring was 1.8 percent, compared to a decrease of 8.37 percent in the preceding 14 weeks.

    "This study of Fukushima health hazards is the first to be published in a scientific journal. It raises concerns, and strongly suggests that health studies continue, to understand the true impact of Fukushima in Japan and around the world,” said co-author Joseph Mangano, MPH, MBA, and Executive Director of Radiation and Public Health Project. “Findings are important to the current debate of whether to build new reactors, and how long to keep aging ones in operation.”

    • This is just the tip of the mountain of deaths caused by Fukushima so far.. no spontaneous abortions counted, no birth defects counted, no unhealthy children counted, no children's cancer deaths later on counted, and only ONE country out of how many globally is in this study?

      This is also not counting the mass die offs of several species in the Pacific ocean. We know so little about the Pacific, that it is like Mars to us.

      After Chernobyl blew, baby birds died on the California west coast, to the point where NONE of them lived in several species worst affected in that year.

      Biologists and ocean scientists cannot even figure out what is causing the biggest mass die off of animals in history, and it has been going on for several years now.
