Original published June 13, 2012 by a Fukushima evacuee, translated by Dissensus Japan:

[...]

Someone I know finally moved out of Fukushima to Mie (middle west of Japan). I wasn’t close to her, but she told me a major incident occurred that inspired her to be scared of radiation.

At a hospital in Fuksuhima where she was working in, 5 babies out of 7 were born with birth defect, Down’s syndrome or lost by miscarriage.

  • 2 Down’s syndrome
  • 1 born with 6 fingers
  • 1 anencephalia
  • 1 miscarriage
  • 2 other infants were 4 months old old at the time. They have been followed over time.

Speaking in terms of probability, it’s hardly possible this happens in a same hospital. This terrified her. With experts’ knowledge and experiences, it reached the conclusion that this was associated with radiation.

After this, her husband finally agreed and her family evacuated home.

    When will "they" get it?
    No kids equals no future.
    There are wounds that result
    for which there is no suture.
    How many delivered
    to never take breath?
    How many will live
    needing care until death?
    How many to grow
    never able to strive?
    How many will wish
    they were never alive?
    How many parents
    must endure grief?
    How many will greet
    Death as Mercy, release?
    What can bring Justice
    or Just satisfaction
    to all of those
    most needing Compassion?
    How many lives
    erased from Lifes' Book?
    When the accounting
    of lives Nuclear took?
    When condemnation
    of Lifes' degradation?
    I hope before Species

    this is a statistical distribution, it's awful in Fukushima, but 100KM out, lots of kids will be real sick and 200 KM out lots of kids will be kind of sick.

    What i am most concerned about is the reduction in reproductive efficiency, if the Japanese are like the russians and ukranians we will see a 30% fall in overall female fertility for at least a generation.

    has anyone got statistics on japans birthrate since the accident?

    "…Exposure to radioactivity by only about food, not considered the cause…"

    ionising radiation from iodine 131 and cesium 134, 137 etc might cause this.. i noticed links missing for the recent tuberculosis statistics were broken on the japan tb project.. its staggering the scope of the coverup of health data in japan as well as other countries like belarus and kazahkstan semey…

    the japanese have succesfully covered up the real likely doses and wont even release the small amount of data they do have.. so as not to embarass the folks down at the World Health Organisation…

    my respects and condolences to the families of the effected… and this from just one hospital? :(

    (Dec. 30, 2011)

    "..FUKUSHIMA–Hospitals in Fukushima Prefecture are facing financial strain–and cutting services–due to the ongoing impact of the crisis at Tokyo Electric Power Co.'s Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.

    The prefecture's hospital association, to which about 90 percent of its hospitals belong, recently estimated that the hospitals' combined losses would reach at least 12.6 billion yen for the first year after the outbreak of the nuclear crisis in March.

    The hospitals demanded TEPCO pay compensation for the first six months. They received an average of about 70 percent of their request…

    "Compensation payments didn't start until nine months after the accident. Unless something is done, it will be a long time before hospitals [in the prefecture] can resume…

    Many of us..I have..fought very hard to keep this kind of headline from coming across the board.
    How I have dreaded this day.

    The children of Fukushima and surrounding areas..(to an untold distance)..are going to suffer the same fate as the children of Fukushima.

    It's on days such as this..that reaffirmation of personal committment is the only way to get through it.
    We will never abandon the children of Fukushima…
    We will never abandon the people of Fukushima,of Japan..or the rest of peoples of the world.
    We will never abandon the fauna and flora ..the very Earth,it self.

        Yes, Heart, so sad, so true.

        Have said it before here and will say it again. When governments began legitimized nuclear war, and nuclear weapons were first deployed, mankind began a terrible descent into the worst kind of moral decay, moral bankruptcy.

        For the first time in our recorded human history, mankind legitimized the killing of massive numbers of civilians. The killing of masses of civilians supposedly became the "deterrent" to nuclear war.

        We are now called "collateral damage" if we, as human beings, die in wars. We aren't even referred to as human beings, anymore. It's just plain wrong. There is no justifying this kind of warfare.

        I remember doing "duck and cover" drills in grade school, and being terrified I'd die in a nuclear war. Is that fair to young children? I say not. It is not fair to poison the children — to harm their bodies, minds, or souls, to grease the wheels of the nuclear weapons juggernaut? Resoundingly, no. The nuclear juggernaut threatens to roll over us all.

        Taking the warfare = legitimized genocide argument a step further, let us remember the nuclear power industry and nuclear weapons are inseparable. Does the means justify the ends? Is the killing of massive numbers of civilians due to nuclear accidents justified to maintain the balance of military, economic, and political power?

        No. N-O. Saikado hantai.

          So how is this = Atoms for Peace?

          Our weapons are useful for killing large numbers of people.

          But we can't use them because they kill large numbers of people.

          And the ones we try to kill may try to kill us first.

          At any rate we probably wouldn't survive the enemy's retaliation even if we got a first strike.

          And how does this = a balance of power?

            PS."acceptable losses"
            What is an acceptable loss?
            Is it having an abortion..rather than risk a having a damaged child?
            Is it never having the opportunity to have children..the fear of marrying?
            Are these acceptable losses?
            Acceptable to whom?
            Evidently..these losses are acceptable to the Japanese government and Tepco.

        'Denial of reality' is possibly the strongest of human psychological traits, in a country such as the US where this denial has been reinforced and spoonfed to us since childbirth for decades.

        It isn't the same elsewhere, not at all.

        It does keep the crime rate down, though, for awhile . . .

          Possibly so. But close enough to get the point across of what's coming.

          And in many cases, over a year into this, it could be far worse. We'll probably never know, with Japanese obstetricians killing them off by the hundreds now, if not by the thousands. Unlike some other countries, these babies are not allowed to live.

          A good question is, especially with a collapsing medical industry and a collapsing economy, when will these policies be implemented in the US? Don't think it won't happen. It's called 'forced abortion', very popular in some areas.

          I call it 'infanticide', but that's just me.

          What's not true? That the woman works in a hospital? That babies and children in Fuku are getting really sick and dying? That doctors are surprised to see how quickly people are getting sick and having symptoms?

          We know that our governments are totally DOWNPLAYING the reality of the situation; their silence certainly speaks volumes in that it's helping absolutely no one but the money changers. Fear mongering and lies aside, I'm more inclined to listen to a woman who works (or used to) in a Fuku hospital, especially when her story is very much in line with the facts that we're already aware of.

      I know for a fact that there is some strange genetic mutation is happening regarding birth and if anyone cares to verify my comment please do so, I don't mind. A family member of Dr Ono, who used to be a doctor at Fukushima Daiini, is an obsteritian and said there were 50 births in May 2012 at one of Fukushima hospitals and they were all girls. This is a strange phenomenon.

        hi glowinthe dark

        interesting point you make.. this report looks at the increase in males after the chernobyl incident.. it also posits an increase in males in japan after daichi, but maybe their claim is half right.. but maybe the genetic switch can move both ways??

        Thyroid doses for evacuees from the Fukushima nuclear accident

        "..The new study is "the most convincing documentation" to date that radiation can lead to sex bias in humans, according to geneticist Karl Sperling of the Institute of Medical Genetics and Human Genetics in Berlin.

        The findings challenge the conventional belief that exposure to nuclear radiation has no, or negligible, genetic effects in humans, added Sperling, who wasn't involved in the study, published in the latest issue of the journal Environmental Science and Pollution Research.

        “For the scientific community, Dr. Scherb’s findings are completely unexpected [but] statistically well proven,” Sperling wrote in an email.,,"

          Yes, I saw that study of increased male birth too.
          I posted my comment as mere fact not making any definitive judgement. After all, there are many variables which could cause a particular genetic mutation so that that paper could still be varied. The genetic mutation could depends on the total amount of radionuclides released or even the percentage of mixture of radionuclides. I think this is an area for Busby et al as I am not a doctor or research scientist.
          Also bear in mind that it's only a result from one hospital and for it to become a solid statistic, perhaps much larger data needs to be collected. But 50 girls in a month is no conspiracy. Dr Ono cares about people and he won't spread disinformation…not like Yamashita!

          the plutonium has been burning in furnaces around japan and the dispersal of plutonium being from nuke testing and only recently being found is convenient..

          it is very hard to test for plutonium.. you have to get up close and personel.. real close.. safecast is mainly checking gamma as far as i am aware.. and surprisingly the japanese still dont have isotope identifiers available on ebay from most good medical/scientific suppliers.. not available to the public though for obvious reasons.. and not being made available to safecast which is a shocking use of available resources.. safecast have to still use 1950`s technology gieger counters…

    n the summer of 2003, architect and Chernobyl Children's Project International volunteer Duncan Stewart was in Belarus to design two buildings for CCPI and film a documentary. He suffered a near fatal accident.

    Two years later, in recovery from massive injuries, he returned to see the completed work, reconstruct his broken memory, and learn more about the impact of Chernobyl on children and families in Belarus. This video tells the shocking story of Duncan's accident and rescue, his emotional reunion with the Belarusian doctors who saved him, and the CCPI projects that brought him to Belarus in the first place.

    After Chernobyl, it is alleged MOST women were forced into abortions..no questions asked..just done. So any statistics could be biased..fetus from 6 weeks to NINE months were aborted unless the woman hid themselves. It seems no records were provided for statistical use of numbers of fetus aborted or defects. Or to the mental damage to the women, fathers, families….

    It doesn't require a lot of research to deflect Tepco trolls. Even with the muzzle on the Main Stream Media the news flows freely on the Internet.

    Yes, it is true that not all reports can be verified and sensational fiction will at times be published as a news report. But the nuclear fascists dissemble so much more that the ratio of lies to truth is staggering. They have much at stake financially to keep the current Dr. Frankenstein industry running at full stream.

    For a single plant disaster to shut down the plants in the entire country for many months is an enormous admission Japan is on the ropes from a deadly health hazard. So deadly even the politicians fear that even one more plant disaster could cause extinction of the Japanese race.

    If conditions at Fukushima Daiichi don't improve radically in the next 90 days, then Noda will be deposed by December. I suspect things will get much worse and the people of Japan are angry beyond words at their government. Even a cowed dog will bite his evil master if kicked one time too many.
