Title: Position Statement: What Is Currently Happening to Fukushima Children?

  • May 2012  Special member of Cancer Policy Board, Hokkaido Prefecture

[...]

When the above four studies are tallied in one table, it becomes obvious that the result of the thyroid examinations of children in the “Fukushima Prefecture Health Management Survey” is astonishing. This is because one-third of the children had developed “ cysts.” A “cyst” is a fluid-filled sac. Cysts don’t mean there is an immediate chance of developing thyroid cancer. However, it is apparent that something extraordinary is happening inside the thyroid gland, such as inflammation or changes in cellular properties.

[...]

Summarizing the thyroid ultrasound examination results from Japan and overseas, prevalence of “cysts” detected in children around the age of 10 is approximately 0.5-1.0%.

The fact that 35% of Fukushima children (average age around 10) have thyroid cysts strongly suggests that these children’s thyroid glands are negatively affected by undesirable environmental factors.

There is a strong concern that waiting for further analysis of above data and the completion of follow-up examinations will lead to irreversible health damages in these children.

Consequently, it is strongly desired that small children living in Nakadori (adjacent to the coastal region) and Hamadori (the coastal region) in Fukushima receive immediate implementation of preventive measures such as evacuation and more frequent screening examinations.

Based on above findings, a letter from Shunichi Yamashita to thyroid specialists all over Japan, instructing them not to offer second opinions to concerned families, can only be considered a repressive conduct: a violation of human rights for those exposed to radiation and current patients.

[...]

It is clear that an immediate evacuation from highly contaminated areas is imperative in order to prevent a possibility of irreversible health damages in children with future potential for life and improved health.  This is the lesson we must all learn from the tragedy of Chernobyl.

      I second, CaptD. Let's leave a word of suport to Dr. Matsuzaki at the title link (Fukushima Voices).

      It is a risky courageous move to speak up against the dark power/money Shunichi Yamashita, who is taking advantage of the most terrible nuclear accident in the worst professional way. Yamashita is ordering the nation's thyroid experts not to treat the victims so that he can turn this a golden opportunity to advance his research/name.

      Dr. Shunichi Yamashita 山下俊一 of Fukushima University Medical School is guilty of crimes against humanity and he should be prosecuted accordingly in a world court. He is dangerous not only to Japanese children but also to the world because he is abusing his expert position to basically conduct immoral human experiments.

      Many WERE speaking out but few were being quoted in the media. That is what is so scary. Good truthful information abounds, but little of it makes its way into the public knowledge because someone somewhere edits out the better information to keep the old, familiar misinformation. Also, it takes a very long process to get research test results published as professional papers and until they are published, which most will never be, others can't respond by supporting, retesting or challenging the findings.

    Note the DATE on this article..May 19,2012! At least TWO months of more radiation poisoning. And two more months of nothing done for these people. A violation of human rights? YES. Nothing is being done to change the situation by the Japanese government after two more months. There is NO international outcry! Hope all the citizens of all the world's governments take a good long look at what has happened to people in Japan, because that is what can and will happen to THEM. Its a new way to keep down cost in the case of nuclear plant accidents….or a new way to control population growth…"they just go away."

    is this driven by the short term exposure to Radioactive iodine or is this driven by Cesium?

    cesium usually causes cardiac problems, iodine usually attacks the thyroid.

      It's not short-term in Fukushima, of course. The Radioiodines keep coming.

      The problem is that Thyroid disease is really insidious. Most people don't even know they have a thyroid or how important it actually is…

      What this Dr. is pointing out is that cysts are very unusual for children of a young age. While it is not yet fatal, it is NOT normal and a precursor for thyroid disease, malfunction, and cancer.

      The cells are under attack and the iodine keeps coming… Some radioiodines have an extremely long half-life (I-129). :(

      The Cesium is another killer, altogether…

      patb2009, i've been wondering on this a long time, and i suspect that these children also got exposed to some very heavy industrial toxins or arsenic from the flooding. It's not talked about, but massive quantities of industrial toxins and heavy metals were released during the tsunami. Very similar to the flooding in New Orleans with the industrial part of town going under water. Very little was made of it by the media once authorities reassured the public that no harm would result. But, i lived near a smelter and know that arsenic and thyroid diseases of all kinds go hand in hand, including cysts, especially in children. Sadder still, they will also have been exposed to the iodine isotope, and the cancers from this usually occur a few years after exposure. So, some scientists, ALL of them getting published anyway, ignore the children's exposure to anything but radiation and are curious why the cysts are forming. Of course, under the circumstances, there is no environmental testing for these toxins.

    GGITG sez… "e schools and day cares. The cysts were caused by I131. Its long gone.
    /sarc"

    SP: Actually except when the coriums rumble and re-fission (always unreported by Tepkill) the I-131 is pretty well gone with an 8 day half-life. So the kids are sick, but stable with no more I-131 to worry about unless Daiichi blows its top again. Right?

    Wrong. The fuking liars conveniently "forget" to name drop the other isotope in the radioactive iodine class. It's I-129 and they have instructed all monitoring posts to omit any mention of I-129 being detected.

    Why? Because I-129 has a rather nasty half-life of 15.7 MILLION YEARS! It's now the new Tepkill invisible elephant in the room, sitting quietly beside the equally invisible strontium pachyderm.

    So has much I-129 was ejected from Fukushima Daiichi? A lot. Here is an estimate of the percentages the radioactive iodines represent for the whole raft of 1,000 isotopes expelled:

    "Radioactive isotopes of iodine account for roughly 4% of materials produced by fission of Uranium-235. Within that 4%, approximately 25% is Iodine-129 and 75% is Iodine-131"

    Credit: http://www.living-intentionally.com/?p=548

    SP: there's plenty of long-lived I-129 deposited across Japan. But fat chance the Yamashita happy faces at Tepkill are even going to address that threat…for now.

    They will act so surprised when individual citizens will pay to have I-129 identified in Japanese soul samples. The nucleocrats will be…

    Dearest Admin,
    My deepest and most sincere thanks for all you have done to perservere with ENENews until this moment. Sincerest thanks to all posters here today, and those whom we miss dearly.
    Thank you for giving so many persons a voice :)
    It's a new day.
    Please, let's give those who have incredible courage, a voice. Can we be their support and resource as best we can? They are extremely brave and very accomplished persons, who like us are overcoming great obstacles daily.
    You all have effectively changed my life forever because I've always sought truth. Was born this way, yet with enormous empathy.
    Thank you for accepting me, even though you all are insurmountably more brilliant than me. You should know that I by nature, see persons in such a light that 'My inconceivable meter keeps needing recalibrating'. However, I can't stop believing in the human spirit and goodness.
    This is an ongoing crisis which I cannot personally ignore, and must make my best personal decisions based on facts, as best I can. This is where I am forever indebted to you all and those who were here before.
    It has taken all of your collective words and images to help me understand and convince me of the magnitude of what the world now faces.
    Somehow, ENENews and all of you steadfast, truly inspired posters should be recognised for your expertise and humanitarianism.
    Evacuate affected children. Do ecg's and document.

    "..Regarding the general public in the three most affected countries, the only evidence of health effects due to radiation is an increase in thyroid cancer among people exposed as children or adolescents in 1986. There were more than 6,000 cases reported from 1991 to 2005 in Belarus, Ukraine and four most affected regions in the Russian Federation. By 2005, 15 of the cases had proven fatal, the report said. A "substantial portion" of the cases could be attributed to drinking milk in 1986 contaminated with short-lived iodine-131 from the accident….

      Otherwise the report reconfirmed that radiation doses to the general public in the three most affected countries were relatively low and most residents "need not live in fear of serious health consequences". In the areas of Belarus, the Russian Federation and Ukraine defined as "contaminated areas" by the former Soviet Union, because of higher soil levels of the long-lived caesium-137, the average additional dose over the period 1986-2005 is "approximately equivalent to that from a medical computed tomography scan". The report said that the severe disruption caused by the accident resulted in "major social and economic impact and great distress for the affected populations".

      ….The report also says that it is not possible to state scientifically that radiation caused a particular cancer in an individual. "This means that in terms of specific individuals, it is impossible to determine whether their cancers are due to the effects of radiation or to other causes, or moreover, whether they are due to the accident or background radiation."

      And because of "unacceptable uncertainties in the predictions," the Committee decided not to use models to project absolute numbers of effects in populations exposed to low doses, the report said…."

      and this "estimation" as they dont have real figures..

      "..The estimation of thyroid doses has been expanded to include 100 million people in Belarus, the Russian Federation and Ukraine from five million…"

    These folks need to save themselves.

    Tepco has no interest in survivors. Survivors will be filing suits, and to TEPCO that is unwanted..TEPCO has plans for these people who are effected by the accident, that seems to be obvious….let them die. Do not treat them at hospitals, let them return to their homes (so they will die faster and ease the finacial burden of being in the shelters.)
    TEPCO will lie to them throughout the rest of their lives…."no immediate heath risk" TEPCOs plan is very clear, these folks and perhaps all of us have to have our own plans, and if your plan is to save your children from health risks….leave. It may be difficult, but the health risk from radiation are more difficult.

    "Power Struggle" is a useful book, released in 1986, which opens with the story of open revolt aginst the big nuke bankers and fraudsters getting run out of Washington state for trying to force rate payers there to cough up funds for five nukes … the WHOOPS debacle, largest corporate bonding issue that went bust up to that time …

    This book will open your eyes to the reality that our "democracy" has been, perhaps irretrievably, subverted by "monied interests" who stop at nothing to advance their wicked self-interest. The concept of "natural monopoly" was itself an enduring fraud, to kill public power, like they have in the rest of the world. The electrical power interests spent lavishly on smear campaigns, outright propaganda etc. and bought their way through Congress with Price-Anderson Act protections for a "critical" (nice play on words) industry, we never needed for power (think coal, hydro, wind, solar) but which guaranteed a police state and continued protection for their private monopolies …

    For me, the fight is personal: My great grandfather built the company which built the machines that have destroyed Japan …

    He took rescue capital from J. P. Morgan, during a panic in the 1880's, and sealed the fate of General Electric.

    One of C. A. Coffin's enduring quotes: "Electricity has enormous potential, because it has the potential to be every man's slave."

    Here is the ethos from a corporate giant of history, who grew up when slavery was legal in parts of this evil empire. Exactly how, I ask, have we not ourselves become enslaved to the interests of electricity?

    The die are cast. The stakes are unbelievably high. I believe it is important to understand how we got here, so we can begin to extricate ourselves, before it is really too late, if it isn't already …

    George Washington never fought so insidious a foe, as we now have to fight, to reclaim our destiny as a free and independent republic.

    Thanks for letting me rant. Fight on 'newsers. Even if we only convert one andagi at a time, the fight is on.

    /rant off.

    Go Japan … kill the nuclear power beast before it overwhelms you and your beautiful children. They are unmasked as hypocrites and parasites.

    saikado hantei! Long live enenews!!!

      Dear nedlifromvermont,
      Most excellent rant!! And, thank you for your kindness. You folks have me so 'wide awake' that I can't get enough of ENENews and believe many others are the same!
      I will continue to welcome folks here. So much rational truth is being creatively, eloquently and passionately presented that as difficult as it may seem …it's imperative we can no longer trust TPTB (and they know this now). This is the game changer.
      It is right to be angry and deeply disturbed. It frankly 'sucks' daily …but if I can do just one thing, spread truth in ways folks might begin to grasp, really love the persons in my life, continue to enjoy life as best I can and most of all …never stop caring for/about humanity, perhaps I will sleep at night.
      I woke up this morning realizing I'm committed to this cause to honor every person I've attended to in the past 30+ years who has battled cancer, and their loving families.

      Cancer is so limited. It cannot cripple love. It cannot shatter hope. It cannot corrode faith. It cannot eat away peace. It cannot destroy confidence. It cannot kill friendship. It cannot shut out memories. It cannot silence courage.' -author unknown.

      Let's go ENENewsers!!
      Aloha.

    Why only around 10 year olds? If they are at 1% I would make an assumption then that around 4 year olds would be about 6% because a 10 year old is closer to a adults height. Why is it that every time a study is done by the pro-nukes, they take the study on the less vulnerable or mix studies and then cherry pick the data that favors the results they want to see..

    @RichardPerry … Do you really need to ask, "Why …" anything.

    These people are power-crazed, obsessed with lying, cherrypicking and any other duplicity which advances their evil aim, to enslave the world with this odious technology!!!

    Why indeed? Why not lie? It works!!! Goebbels proved the point. Our American-led lyers(?) are mere imitators and toadies.

    *** version Françaises: http://youtu.be/Kd1pjrBratE ***

    Part 5 STORY: After returning from the exclusion zone, the crew goes to a testing site to be measured for radiation exposure. Later, Ian visits a nursery school located just outside of the 30km radiation zone, where the head teacher opens up about her fears for the children's future. Finally, the children go out to play, but their conversation quickly turns shockingly real.
