Dr. Tomoyuki Yamazaki, Specialist in the medical effects of radiation exposure: From my experience, in a wide area many children in Fukushima and the greater Tokyo area were complaining of similar symptoms in March.
Reporter: And how do the levels of radiation here compare to what he’s seen in Chernobyl?

Dr. Yamazaki fears the reality for Fukushima could soon be the same as that of Chernobyl, with children suffering from radiation related illnesses for decades.
