Fukushima Woman: Children are already starting to have health problems — We hardly saw mosquitos, moths, beetles this summer (VIDEO)

Oct. 13, 2012 speech by Koriyama woman translated by Fukushima Diary:

This summer, we hardly saw mosquito, moth, scarab beetle in my area.

[…] we never saw bugs to cover the screen door, which used to try to jump into the blue-white lights of convenient stores.

We never heard the sound of blank shot to keep sparrows away that we used to hear when they harvest rice every year.

Red dragonfly used to make groups around the end of summer, but only one flew to our garden this year.


Children are already starting to have health problems.

    Internal radiation contamination of Japanese people is rising daily. It probably won't peak for years because of the huge areas of fallout that are still accumulating higher levels of radiation in the triad areas: air, water, and food.

    Residents can't stop contaminated air unless they never go outside and use HEPA filters inside,, but food and water can be bought from cleaner areas.

    Millions of Tokyo residents boycott food from the Kanto region, which is understandable despite the dire financial constraints the boycott imposes on Kanto farmers.

    The rise in illnesses in Japan can't be stopped, the wheels for illness are already in high speed motion. There will be a lot of soul searching as children begin to die.

      SP, why do you think they rebrand Fukushima goods? As their Gov't said: they must all share the pain.

    • Anthony Anthony

      The angry Kanto farmers have to take their issues up with the Govt and Tepco who created the disaster. I find it hard to find respect for people (farmers included) who are OK with knowingly poisoning others to make a buck for themselves. Two wrongs won't make a right here.

        Dear Anthony and above,
        Such a great bamboozle this industry has tried to create. It's folks like you, our readers and dear Admin who are now relentlessly affecting worldwide change daily, 24/7.
        I believe that it is easy and natural to react to pieces of information as we receive them here at ENENews, but after some time, overwhelming evidence of the 'bigger picture' sinks in. The obvious deception, lack of transparency, condoned isolationism, prejudice towards workers, disregard for humanity, disregard for the ecosystem, etc… Squid ink! Deception.
        The collective perserverance and sense of focused purpose at ENENews has foretold all of these things. We are now living them and extremely challenging they are. As a medical professional, I'm completely agast. Dismissal of monitoring. Dispersion of contaminated foodstuffs. Ongoing disregard for the longterm welfare and safety of children. Severe and completely unaddressed longterm health implications for more persons and wildlife than we can imagine. No reference to what was learned from the suffering from Chernobyl. Plutocracy.
        I believe we are living in a global plutocracy and their strategy of bamboozlement works for the majority of the populace. However, awareness of this terrible charade is growing fervently :)!
        Keep posting, reading and sharing ENENews!! Take good care all.

        • Anthony Anthony

          You are great andagi. I think the frustration comes from us not gaining any significant, relevant traction for change. Its almost like these twists and turns are slaps in our caring faces.

          • andagi andagi

            Dear Anthony,
            Many here are greater ๐Ÿ™‚ I believe it's safe to say 'Your frustrations are also our own.'
            I believe that soon we will have the chains we need for traction… unfortunatly, I'm afraid this will involve the theft of thousands of dear innocent children's dreams.
            This is my personal long haul. With all the information gained from Chernobyl, I'm agast. I have no words for what is happening with regard to the children alone. I cope with this daily.
            No nukes.

    (odorless too, for the most part)

    This is the 'one thing' that the Nuclear Industry has on its side. They will play the 'denial card' over and over. They will pump the propaganda continuously. I am certain this aspect will never change.

    [[ Why not? ]]
    If people are not going to evacuate, then at least every man, woman and child in Japan should be outfitted with dosimeters and/or radiation detectors.

    The average persons observations regarding 'life' around them is indisputable proof to me at this point. Many here at enenews and elsewhere have reported and observed many insect, bird, plant and individual health anomalies that all point to one thing. Fukushima!

    Seems like a simple observation stating that there are less 'bugs' around. However, when this observation happens throughout the northern hemisphere then, "Hey!", there IS something wrong here.

    ๐Ÿ™ Ecosystems and the 'chain of life' have been and continue to be 'hammered' by this. Closing ones eyes will not make it go away.

    heads up guys and girls

    Documenting Ian is back and is currently filming..

    heres a link to his blog and links to his first fukushima documentary for those who might have missed it!

    Decontamination (part 1)
    I am filming all this week in Fukushima Prefecture, and today I began in the city of Date, which lies about 50 kilometers to the west of the damaged nuclear power plant. After the meltdown, the wind blew the radiation westward, and so the contamination spread far beyond the 20 kilometer evacuation zone initially established by the government.
    At the Sugano family home in the city of Date, the decontamination has only just began, although it has already been a year and a half since the meltdown.

    After the meltdown, the family sensed they were in danger so they packed all their bags and prepared to leave at a momentโ€™s notice. But the government never evacuated the city of Date.
    Eventually, two months after the meltdown, the entire village of Iitate, which lies next to Date, was evacuated when the government finally admitted that the radiation had spread further than initially announced.


    Well done Ian! +1000

    and more evidence of nuclear damage here

    ** The children of Japan will probably suffer the same health effects that children of Chernobyl suffered from:

    Chernobyl heart, Chernobyl collar (thyroid), Chernobyl AIDS…

    ** And the initial health effects they suffered from:

    weakness, tiredness, headaches, nose bleeds, hearth arrythmias, vomiting, loss of appetite

    ** And other diseases:

    gallbladder, tonsillitis, teeth decay, stomach problems

    ** There will be more Strontium-90 in their teeth and bones.

    ** Birth defects.

    ** For children and adults:

    They could see increases in blood cancers (leukemias) and lymphatic system and heart disease and DNA mutations

    And this may continue for generations because the radiation will be there long-term; in their soil; in their water; in their food.

    Having read the headline, I can't help noticing that this was a bee-less summer in northern Europe.
    Even though I know correlation is not causality, it does make me wonder…

  • Anthony Anthony

    So with reports such as this one, it is okay to then import their food for our tables?

    Not in my world.

    I am REALLY pissed off today about this ongoing nonsense.

    • andagi andagi

      Dear Anthony,
      Me too, every day, but still focused on generating change, saving lives and relationships. It's tough!
      Aloha ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Anthony Anthony

        Its just such a maddening situation. It wouldn't be the first time someone tried to pass off inferior products but I'm having a hard time conceptualizing how our govts give this their approval.

        I'm really starting to want off this roller coaster.

        • andagi andagi

          Dear Anthony,
          Truthfully, it is quite important that you stay in the game and fight! ๐Ÿ™‚ We're here with you.

          • Anthony Anthony

            You and moons are both so right. It is just so actually dangerous for those of us who are trying to live healthy or deal with health issues already. Maybe that's the plan though, and I never considered this before. Maybe the crazy death machine called FUKU is brought along by individuals who believe in culling the weak and sick out of the human equation. You know, I sure don't like that concept one bit, but it at least makes sense of the madness of that's whats running this nightmare inside.

            Why the hell would our Govt serve up radiated beef to us unless they wanted to? Its been burning my brain all day today. Thanks to you both.

        • many moons

          We need to organize like they are!
          I'm sure most people would not eat radiated beef…if they knew it was going to hurt them….so we have to get the message out….how.
          Local newspapers are going under, the media is tied up…this information control is gonna bite us all in the butt…we have to think how we can change this….even the minutemen and Paul Revere had a system of communication…and when the internet is shut down we will be at the mercy of a lot of greedy people.

    • andagi andagi

      Dear Anthony,
      Your honest words are also the words of countless others worldwide ๐Ÿ™‚ You make very poignant posts and are a force of change ๐Ÿ™‚ We all however, are in a 'long haul' mode now.
      Difficult truths of bamboozlement are revealed daily on ENENews! Our readership is growing! We must support our Admin and loyal posters/readers. We are so privileged here to be in the presence of some of the greatest minds on our planet regarding this complex conundrum.
      I hope newcomers to ENENews read the posts from the very beginning (3/11) and appreciate the honest, inspired and collective passion for the welfare of humanity and our dear planet. We are now living what these brilliant persons predicted, and tried so very hard to prevent with their heartfelt, honest expertise. Yes, I'm upset too. Keep up the fight!!! You're in good company. Take good care ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sociopathic Narcissists will destroy everyone else in order to have pleasure; money, power, sex, position, etc.

    If anyone confronts and exposes such a personality, they will destroy that person at any cost, because they cannot stand anyone confronting them.

    Many corporations have such personalities at the top, because they destroy all opposition within the organization, especially those who play nice.

    Thus, the most sociopathic individuals 'get' promoted to the top.

    • andagi andagi

      Dear AGreenRoad,
      Bravo!! ๐Ÿ™‚
      'If anyone confronts and exposes such a personality, they will destroy that person at any cost, because they cannot stand anyone confronting them.

      'Many corporations have such personalities at the top, because they destroy all opposition within the organization, especially those who play nice.' Quite right!

      Excellent point:) You illuminate the essence of bullying and your astute post illuminates the plutocracy we're globally engaged with.
