Fukushima Resident: In late June [2011] I started to suffer from various health problems one after another.

The problems are exactly the same as those found in villages around Chernobyl.

I feel really uncomfortable when I have an armpit ache for 2 days.

We were already exposed to critical amount of radiation when the levels were high.

  • Normally-operating nuclear reactors kill.

    Fukushima, San Onofre and Our Health


    "Numerous peer reviewed epidemiological and clinical studies published in various scientific journals by Mangano and his associates in the RPHP have found that children living within 50 miles of nuclear power reactors have higher amounts of radioactivity in their teeth; have higher rates of cancer, including leukemia; and that such rates drop after reactors shut down."
    Now, what if the reactors – instead of shutting down – go into never-shutdown mode and they are exposed to the open air without containment?
    As Mangano continues,

    “It took precisely six days after the earthquake/tsunami for airborne radiation to hit the {North American} west coast. In the days that followed, the EPA produced data showing that environmental radiation levels had jumped. Elevated levels had reached all parts of the US.”

    And subsequent data indicated that this radiation had almost immediate effects.

    “Preliminary data,” Mangano relates, “from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stated that in the first fourteen weeks after the radioactive plume entered the US, the average number of weekly reported infant deaths in 119 US cities (30 percent of the population) rose 3.99% higher than the fourteen weeks…

    Here is an excellent 96-min presentation held on Jan. 22, 2013 in Brattleboro, VT. Chiho Kaneko, originally from Japan, gives a slide show and testimony of her trip to Fukushima between Oct. 29 and Nov. 11, 2012.

    She talks about the ongoing impact of the crisis on families, communities, and the environment in areas surrounding the stricken Fukushima Dai-ichi reactors; covers the plight of workers involved in radioactive decontamination efforts; testimonies of people who have evacuated from the town where the reactors are located; what the Japanese media is reporting concerning the crisis; and the tireless efforts of Japanese citizens to seek justice and reparations, address the social and political failures that led to the crisis, and bring about a nuclear-free future for their country, including an unprecedented criminal lawsuit filed against TEPCO by over 100,000 people. She carried a Geiger counter and shows her readings in various places including next to a state-run detector.

    Chiho Kaneko was born in Japan’s Iwate Prefecture (150 miles n. of the Fukushima Dai-ichi reactors), graduated from Hokkaido University with a degree in agronomy. She moved to the U.S. and is a visual artist, musician, interpreter/translator, and columnist for a Japanese daily newspaper. Her parents still live in the area.
