    Children with lumps, cysts, and nodules on their thyroids, thanks to nuclear. Men killing children, is what it is.

    The damage is likely already done for many in the region. Who can we thank for these slow motion mass murders? Yes, we know who: JP authorities, TEPCO, IAEA, GE, Japanese mass media, paid nuclear "experts".

    When will the people take action against these traitors?

    When is someone going to file charges against the Japanese government and TEPCO, of genocide and crimes against humanity, in international courts?

    It's about time. Or do we have to wait till there are many thousand children actually dead?

    Does anyone know what the medical prognosis is for these children? Do the noduals need biopsy, and in the case of cancer-treatment? What damage do the nodual indicate to the thryoid gland..even if not cancerous at this time? What medications will the affected children require? Will their DNA/ability to have normal children be impaired (think that answer is YES)? How will TEPCO and Japan be able to compensate for this damage and correct it? Thats the bottomline, making people whole again–Mr. TEPCOman and Mr. Japanese politico what is your plan? Hope you all have very very deep pockets.

    I just remember reading.."no immediate danger"..right! What about a normal and healthy life for the children. They are not "garbage," just because there is a high population. And if girls are more significantly affected..was the medical community aware they were looking at genocide?

      When will "they" get no kids equals no future?
      There are wounds that result for which there is no suture.
      How many delivered to never take breath?
      How many will live needing care until death?
      How many to grow, never able to thrive?
      How many will wish they were never alive?
      How many parents must endure grief?
      How many will greet Death as Mercy, released?
      What can bring Justice or just satisfaction
      to all of those most needing compassion?
      How many lives erased from Lifes' book?
      When the accounting of lives Nuclear took?
      When condemnation of Lifes' degradation?
      I hope before Species Annihilation.

      @jec, you said: "Mr. TEPCOman and Mr. Japanese politico what is your plan? Hope you all have very very deep pockets."

      Be assured, they have very deep pockets! Unfortunately those are one-way only.

    Arnie, Moms STILL have a legitimate reason to get their families out of there.

    Or-well the unpleasant truth that no one wants to face is that Fukushima has lasted far longer than Chernobyl. Almost all of the Japanese kids are past hope. The only reason Japanese families would evacuate now is for comfort/hospice reasons. There are no more generations in the sperm and eggs in probably 3/4th's of Japan. They wouldn't have the money to travel anyway.
    Japan is not evacuating now because the government is going to enact mandatory contamination isolation(martial law)and revoke citizen passports. These people aren't going anywhere now. They are all test subjects. The Japanese government cannot allow anyone to travel to a foreign country for medical assistance or all their secrets will come out. The problem is the American military. They will be visibly sick by Christmas earliest and Spring 2013 latest.

  • I hope you realize that the link you provide to that program doesn't lead one to anyplace where it can be heard. A lot of Arnie's shows are on his Fairewinds website, so I will try that.

  • The international courts are part of the establishment too. Or Bush would have been brought up before them – and our present government too.

  • In Fallujah, Iraq, where we used so much depleted uranium weaponry, doctors tell women they should not have children. But not much of that seems to make the mainstream news here. Chernobyl was very effectively covered up for 25 years. Japan will be more difficult. This is such a tragedy.

    At the same age, girls experience excellerated growth; compared to boys. If the damages are growth related, you would expect more damages in females than males.
