Fukushima Evacuee: Many kids in region with symptoms of health damage — Abnormal changes began to occur on my son; Stomatitis, eczema, fever, epistaxis

Title: Letters From Mothers Evacuating With Their Children #1
Source: OCHABERIKAI (“A group of mothers evacuating with their children from Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster”)

[…] I presumed that Koriyama [60 kilometers from Fukushima Daiichi] was not seriously damaged, for it was not designated for evacuation-needed area.

I was presuming if it were in a dangerous situation, the government would do something.

Without knowing anything, I was in the long line to get water and foods for life in water failure due to the earthquake and food scarcity even at supermarket.

Abnormal changes began to occur on my oldest son, a pupil. Stomatitis, eczema, fever, epistaxis, and so on. I didn’t know at that time, but those are the very initial symptoms of health damage that people around Chernobyl after the NP-plant accident

Those symptoms are occurring on not only my son but also many children living in Fukushima and broadly Tohoku, Kanto region. […]

Minister Edano’s words “It doesn’t influence our health immediately.” means “It does someday.” […]

Even if it doesn’t influence our health immediately, we will be damaged in our health in the near future after being radiated for a long time. It has already turned out. […]

    If all the medical statistics for Japan were published honestly, the government of Japan would have already fallen. They will continue to lie and hide the truth as a survival technique.

    • Mack Mack

      In Letter #3, the mother says of Japan:

      "I am very scared of this country. It is an information control as if we were in the war."

        yes that is true, war against their own citizens, but when the people cannot immediately infer that "immediately dangerous" probably means extremely dangerous in the future it can't really be that hard to win such war. Guess is the Japanese obsession with perfection.

        • Centaur Centaur

          Yes. As hard as it sounds: The only way to react on this "act of war on the own citizens" is to _physically walk away from the radioactively contaminated battleground_.

    The Mothers' letters…
    There's no words more eloquent than theirs.
    Those letters should be read aloud on national TV in every country with or planning to have nuke plants.

    • Mack Mack

      Thank you, or-well, these letters are the strongest firsthand accounts yet in understanding what Japanese mothers have gone through.

      The main themes in the letters are how families have been divided, the health effects, the worrying, the evacuations, their disgust with Japan's government and TEPCO's actions, and how Osaka will become polluted if they burn radioactive rubble there.

      From Letter #2:

      "I feel anger still now against the wrong handling by Tokyo Electricity Co. and the government."

      From Letter #3:

      "I am trying to protect children from radiation."

      "Now I’m shocked very much to hear that rubbles polluted by radioactivity or asbestos might be burned at nearby incinerator plant here in Osaka."

      Letter #4:

      "Children’s stress caused because they can’t play"

      "Say “No” against the government’s policy to underestimate the danger of internal exposure and spread radioactive materials in the shape of rubbles or manure."

      Letter #5:

      "The polluted land and family’s health that can never be restored… "

      "Politicians and their families also should live in Fukushima, moving the Diet to Fukushima."

      Letter #6:

      "Having noticed that this nation learns nothing while people in certain areas are being sacrificed, I got appalled and deeply disappointed."

      "I would like my children to acquire an ability to live and to live on in the real sense of the term."

      “The best crisis management is to think with your own head.”
