Minamisoma Resident: I was told people from Fukushima couldn’t get life insurance. I can’t believe that’s true. But an insurance person told me that was a possibility. Especially cancer insurance.

    One more nail in the coffin for the poor citizens of Fukushima. If true, and caused by the nuclear disaster, then TEPCO/JAPANESE government is going to face some $$$ medical costs to cover the victims of THE TEPCO disaster.

    Maybe the insurance companies should read the ENE News link…Tokyo Professor: Cesium detected in urine of Fukushima infants “definitely has no effect on human body”

    Dr. Helen Caldicott might have a different opinion.

    Try about 9 minutes in or just listen to the whole thing.

    All the insurance companies, all over the world, are broke. They are all being kept alive by government bailouts. Here in the US, ever notice how many insurance companies are now 'banks'? That is so they have access to the Fed Window, where banks borrow from the Fed, at almost no cost. Free taxpayer money. Their investments, which is what they pay their customers from, has all tanked. And the sickness caused by Fukushima will finish them all off, and soon.

    Coming to an insurance agent and doctor near you. Why do you think the US is in such a hurry to implement national health care? (See above) Millions upon millions deathly sick and no insurance. Another reason the government won't tell the truth about Fukushima. They'll do everything they can to avoid any responsibility.

    Interesting take on US insurance companies. So called medical science here, already can change the diagnosis for diseases. Like Japan, it's not radiation killing you or the kids, it's your attitude or their worrying to much.

    As with all taxes esp. the balance of the new health care taxes coming soon, it all goes into the general fund and not really towards healing anyone except the new bureaucrats' bank accounts.

  • Cure for cancer is available already. Now might be a good time to take this seriously:
