SHIINA Chieko-san is speaking at San Jose City College in an event supported by a SJCC faculty member and groups in Japan and the U.S. Her main Japanese group is Fukushima Women Against Nuclear Power. This is the English edit with brief samples of Japanese.
Ms. Chieko Shiina, Founder of Fukushima Women against Nuclear Power: Children and — not just children — all peoples’ bodies, according to people who talk to each other since last May, have been experiencing all kinds of higher levels of symptoms such as nose bleeds that don’t end, coughing that doesn’t end, different kinds of eye problems.
People go to doctors, especially mothers who take their children are concerned and they may ask their doctor, “Hey I think this is because of the radiation levels.” But they are told “No, It can’t be radiation it’s just because you’re stressed.” [...]
[The nurse stands behind the doctor and says,] “No, don’t tell. Don’t say it. Don’t say it’s radiation. You’ll get in trouble. He’s going to get mad at you. Stay quiet. Don’t say it radiation.”
Like these kind of situations are happening quite a bit within doctors’ offices. It’s really concerning because you should be able to talk about what you’re going through.
So people go to these doctors’ offices and they are not permitted to tell the truth in the situation. They’ll ask for examinations and they’ll be refused, and told it’s not necessary. This is happening very commonly in the Fukushima area.
