[…] Residents report strange symptoms

[…] Some of the mothers told [Akemi Maeshima of Rockville, Maryland, a school nurse for 25 years in Japan who’s been volunteering for the past year at Mano Elementary School in Minami Soma City] that they lost hair within six months of the plant meltdown and subsequent release of radiation.

“Their hair started falling out,” she says. “They were almost bald. They told me they were wearing wigs.”

An office administrator at her school, a 26-year-old woman, reported that her throat had started to hurt and her lymph nodes had started to swell.

In both cases, doctors told the women there was no way to determine if the symptoms were caused by radiation. But the women saw other patients with similar symptoms at doctors’ offices, Maeshima says. […]

  • How can the doctors be lying to the women like this?

    How can they say there is "no way" to determine if their symptoms were from radiation poisoning?

    What lies!

  • AGreenRoad AGreenRoad

    that is what the doctors of the world are trained to say!

    What do you expect, from medical professionals who use HUGE DOSES of radiation on a day to day basis, for 'health'?

    by Dr. Ilya Sandra Perlingieri

    …So, what is not monitored, or where the radiation rates are manipulated, then no one –government officials and corporations– can ever be held accountable, nor can increased death rates, diabetes, stillbirths, birth defects ever be attributed to this catastrophic planetary event.

    When have we ever been told the truth about our life-long systemic radiation poisoning? For decades, we have been uninformed experimental laboratory rats since before the Manhattan Project. There never were any ethical or precautionary considerations. Greed and secret agendas trumped everything else….

      PM Abe reveals plans to build new nuclear plants

      By Ida Torres / December 31, 2012 /

      I note that he studied politics in university – unlike Angela Merkel who studied nuclear physics. He sounds like a Japanese George Bush to me – religiously committed to the death agenda, and ready to lie about it at every turn:

      For example, on sex slaves, a New York Times editorial on 6 March 2007:

      What part of 'Japanese Army sex slaves' does Japan's prime minister, Shinzo Abe, have so much trouble understanding and apologizing for? … These were not commercial brothels. Force, explicit and implicit, was used in recruiting these women. What went on in them was serial rape, not prostitution. The Japanese Army's involvement is documented in the government's own defense files.

    Many in the Northern Hemisphere may be experiencing hair loss from this disaster.

    • Au Au

      Just start looking at women's hair when you go to the grocery store, bank or wherever. I am seeing a lot of women, when I am out and about, with thinning hair. I am also seeing a lot of women coming in, this year, with the chief complaint of hair loss. There's a lot of low thyroid function and thyroid nodules too. I'm just noticing what I notice. The hair loss is from women of all ages- 20's and older. Women who have had great hair – strong, thick and healthy, are complaining of hair loss. Could be that there are younger females with hair loss but I am not seeing that group in my work.

    The Minamisoma story will soon become one of the major horror tales of Fukushima. Only 16 miles south of Fukushima Daiichi the once bustling city of nearly 70,000 residents has degenerated into a tug of war between Tokyo mandating two of the three radioactive sections of the city are "ok"' for people to live despite intensely contaminated farmland and city properties and non-functioning city utilities.

    Tokyo officials gave everyone free 24-hour passes for this holiday season despite knowing all of the city is highly contaminated.

    Is there any doubt why 80 of the 100 nurses fled the Minamisoma hospital? They knew it was a death sentence to live there. May Buddha have mercy on the souls of Tepco/Diet because I have none.

    Genocide in Japan…

    The Japanese doctors obviously adhere to the Hypocrisy Oath.

  • Can concur with the hair loss thing, even here in the UK. My comb & the plughole was thick with it all last year. Avoiding milk & salad, as the French have done for natal mums from the beginning and Vit C, kelp tabs, aspirin, other spices & herbs seem to help.
    The café I frequent in the daytime is like a Doctors waiting room. The waitresses have constant bad throats, the owners wisdom teeth have crumbled…The whole place is under 6 or 7 wifi hotspots too, being in the town center.. I really think avoiding microwave food helps me too.

    Individual doctors have a difficult position. They perhaps are like many of us – we know and have read about the affects of radiation – but they also work in a realm where "lab tests" make the determination of diagnosis. Many a neighbor has diagnosed their friend (your'e anemic – or diabetic, or ____?) even, recommended treatments, but until a lab result from the medical community is given there is no diagnosis – no illness – no treatment. The medical community today basically treats illness, and does little to promote health. That explains the lack of concern about small doses of radiation, about GM foods, the use of chemical fertilizer, insecticide, and herbicide. Those groups calling for "green" lifestyle, health foods, etc – have no credentials for the life obsessions and are ridiculed. These doctors who tell their patients I'can't determine if it is radiation, are likely victims of the "establishment" choosing not to test, making official diagnosis impossible.
