    My condolences to the governor and I hope he survives his radiation-induced illness.

    News like this is going to become regular in Japan.

    Not exactly positive 2020 Olympic games promotional news for Japan. They must be groaning in Tokyo.

    Doctors can't do anything ..damage from radiation will continue with everyone exposed.

    … illness definitely in no way related to exposure to unusually high levels of dangerous radioactivity bequeathed to Fukushima, Japan, by General Electric deigned and mass produced Mark One Boiling Water Reactors …

    … how do I know?

    … GE said so … and told the Japanese doctors to inform any and all patients in health care system …

    "Your illness is in no way related to the radioactivity released by failed United States technology …"

    … and it continues …

    … go away public … there's nothing here for you to see!!!

    … peace …

      Do you have a link for the quote that says that GE said this: "Your illness is in no way related to the radioactivity released by failed United States technology …"

      And, of course, GE nuclear is now GE Hitachi Nuclear, so the Japanese Yakuza, or whoever, have joined GE and are spreading nuclear energy death plants around the world. And the Japanese now hold over 75% of Westinghouse, who are also spreading nuclear technology over all the world, including the US. And the IAEA is run by the Japanese.

      And now, is Japan saying that their nuclear scientists are successful at nuclear technology? Especially, the Monju fast breeder nuclear plant and J-PARC and Toyota and all the experimental reactors at Tokai, and the failure at Rokkasho nuclear reprocessing plant. And are you saying that Japanese politicians and doctors and clean up companies have no say so in their country, and they ignore the people's requests to discontinue nuclear energy, because there is no Yakuza in Japan? Should we discount all the scientific literature written by Japanese scientists as not original?

      It is the nuclear industry, shared by all the nuclear countries, who are promoting their industry by saying that radiation doesn't harm, because it people knew the truth, there would be no new nuclear power plants There is Russian nuclear technology around the world as well. And the members of the Manhattan project were immigrants from many countries.

        And who is still shipping radioactive parts, products, and food from Japan into the US? And who is still actively marketing and constructing new nuclear power plants around the world? And who in Japan is refusing to test citizens for radiation poisoning? And who is planning to build more nuclear power plants in Japan? The Japanese government isn't refusing any more nuclear, or feeding their school children non-radioactive food. And the Japanese are the ones who didn't have adequate emergency plans for the meltdowns and they are the ones who welded shut all the emergency vents. They haven't decommissioned all their nuclear power plants and are now planning to again start up defective reactors. The the NRC in the US said that the evacuation zone should be at least 50 miles around the melted down reactors? And the Japanese didn't evacuate all this population and are encouraging farming and repopulation in this death zone.

          I did e-mail Maruchan and got a quick US postal mail reply that they are not using Japanese sourced ingredients in their ramen noodles and other add water and heat products made in the US. Nice to have some good news

        No but I have an email from a senior person at the IAEA that says radiation not linked to cancer. Would that help? Let me know I've been saving it for a special occasion!

        @Anne … for what it's worth … Yes, there are some guilty and pathetic Japanese nucleocrat crooks out there … who were valued business partners for GE, who I see as the Ur-devil in this business; as it was GE as the largest company who steamrolled US Congress in 1950's to give this nuclear nightmare 'industry' a pass …

        … and no I don't have this quote from GE … the quote is inferred from their inaction … at least this statement, if they made it, would be more than they are saying, which is nothing …

        and GE is so heavily involved in this stink, as a Manhattan Project subcontractor; as a major supplier of reactor fuel (which should be called compacted poison); and as an owner of media and buyer of ad time on other networks (NPR) which then soft soap and downplay the horrible truths we, here, know and understand …

        No, Anne, I shall not tread lightly on the defiled carcass of a once great and iconic American Corporation which has abused its power, it's fortune and the nation's political process to promote a farsical technology that never was a good idea, which was never necessary or green, and that continues to hush up and dissemble about the reality which is Fukushima …

        GE should be liquidated, immediately, and the funds raised then used to contain the radioactive damages and reimburse, partially, the victims …

        It's past time to call out the real progenitors of this evil.

        Period.

        peace …

                TY, PattieB. I wish they would boycott Monsanto, and, etc….. Some people seem to have forgotten that Units #3 and #4 at Fukushima Daiichi were designed, constructed, maintained, and operated by the Japanese, all by themselves. I have no love for GE, but blaming everything on GE is, IMHO, very naive, especially now that it is Hitachi GE in Japan. And before 2007, it was just Hitachi and Toshiba in Japan. I think the whole MIC including the politicians worldwide is partly to blame, including, or especially, the IAEA.

          “The first nuclear reactor in Japan was built by the UK's GEC. In the 1970s, the first light water reactors were built in cooperation with American companies. These plants were bought from U.S. vendors such as General Electric and Westinghouse with contractual work done by Japanese companies, who would later get a license themselves to build similar plant designs. Developments in nuclear power since that time have seen contributions from Japanese companies and research institutes on the same level as the other big users of nuclear power."

    Check Sato's diet and I'm sure you will find local Fukushima cuisine.

    Remember Otsuka Norikazu? He was the TV announcer who got leukemia after eating Fukushima crops on his show to show the food was safe.

    Anybody heard whether he has died?

    Many people are bleeding from their rectum since after Fukushima.
    I had never heard about such a so widespread disease.
    That did not exist before Fukushima
    Have you seen the Japanese governement complaining about important dangerous beef from US? Every Japanese knew that the beef could cause illness in some very rare case.
    Now there is this new epidemic which causes people to bleed from their rectum, but it does not even have a name, cases are not even counted and no one seems to care. It is simply reported as a bleeding. Next. No information as to why.

    Obvious that this is caused by the contamination. Rectum and contaminated food spend a lot of time together, enough time for the digestive system to become ill. Obvious. Even more since this is new since Fukushima.

    But the reaction of the Japanese is like if they were zombies in the face of a wide spread disease. No reaction. Unlike their reaction in the face of the risk to import amercian beef, which was extensive, very loud and maniac. Unreal, totally unreal.

      These problems are caused by GMOs which is Monsanto, not and the radiation by numerous other actors besides GE Hitachi. I have suffered from radiation from Rockwell International, TMI, Chernobyl, atom and hydrogen bomb testing which was the fault of governments around the world. Your boycott of GE, which I have shared for many years, is not a cure for the problem. The newest reactors in the US are being built by Toshiba (Japan) and Areva(France). I am also suffering from uranium mining in the US by companies from Canada (thanks to NAFTA) and Russia, and China now has over a thousand free trades zones within the US. Reactprs #3 and #4 were totally designed, constructed, maintained, and operated by the Japanese alone.

    It's up to you to learn about the different radio-nucleotides, their assorted properties, and their effect on the body OVER TIME.

    All I care to tell you is this–Fukushima was and is an ELE. An ELE is not necessarily a sudden event. Just look at what's happening, how they're handling it, and how long its going to continue.
