Excerpts from an interview with Tokyo-based physician Shigeru Mita, Nelson Groom for Vice.com, Feb. 14, 2014 (h/t anonymous tip):

The Threat

  • I’ve done examinations on more than 1,500 patients. [...] I run blood work and conduct thyroid ultrasound examinations. [...] I’ve mostly tested patients living in Tokyo, and I’ve found a lot of harmful symptoms in children, especially in kindergarten students or elementary school [...] serious effects in the elderly. There have been abnormalities in their differential white-blood-cell count [...] decline in the neutrophil [...] I conducted the first tests in December 2011 [...] the threat has seemed to be spreading into Tokyo since then.

The ‘Cure’

  • There was a baby with a serious illness. [...] she had no neutrophils. [...] Thankfully, she recovered after moving to the Kyushu area. [...] there aren’t any medicines to help [...] I’ve seen a lot of patients from Tokyo who are badly affected, but when they move [...] they get better. After they come back to Tokyo, it gets worse again.

The Cover-up

  • I believe [TEPCO’s reporting on the radiation] must be false. That said, discussing this is a waste of time. We need to use this time to help patients rather than discussing the validity of these statements. That’s the most pressing concern.

The Food

  • In Japan, commercial distribution is prosperous, so some of the contaminated food is definitely coming to Tokyo. [...] we should be testing everything thoroughly, and that at least children should be spared [...]

The Media

  • They are definitely not focusing on this particular concern. I believe the Japanese media have taken side with a small number of powerful people.

The Public

  • People living in eastern Japan [...] are trying to look away from the dangers of radioactivity. Hence they avoid taking the matter seriously.

The Future

  • I worry about the children, their parents, and the children who will be born in the future. I want the patients to move to the safer place [and] strongly recommend that anyone living in the area head to a safer place one or two months out of the year. I encourage everyone living in Tokyo to take blood tests as frequently as possible. [...]

    It's nice to see a doctor finally get his priorities straight i.e. protecting his patients and the general public from a potentially lethal health hazard, instead of bowing and scraping to TPTB.

    Lets just hope there are more in his profession that manage to grow a pair, and do the right thing.

      Those readings only spell one thing for Tokyo: evacuation, and not only for kids.

      Of course, there are other ways of messing up your kids, after you're done nuking them:

      • Dr. Shigeru Mita, Mita Clinic in Tokyo: Our patients mostly come from Tokyo, Chiba, Kanagawa, Saitama, and other Northern Kanto areas.

        The pediatricians’ general textbook says that reference value of neutrophil [the most abundant type of white blood cells, essential part of immune system] for healthy children (6-12 years old) is [...] 4000, but it has shifted to 2500. It is lower than the threshold value of 3000. I think this points at a serious problem. [...]

        In the summer of 2011, there were many children with bloodshot eyes; and what we saw most were children with dark circles under the eyes. [...] we are seeing more cases of sinusitis accompanied with mild case of asthma continuing for longer periods. And when these children spend some time in the West, they get better. If at all possible, I would like them to move away from East Japan. [...]

        [...] radioactive substances coming from Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant have reached Tokyo, and huge amounts of contaminated waste is being burned here as well, I cannot deny the possibility that we are inhaling radioactive substances contained in the air. Again, let me repeat that after the nuclear accident, enormous amounts of nuclear substances were released in the environment. Therefore, if we see an increase in symptoms that are different from the ones we’ve seen before, we physicians should “first consider the effects of radioactivity.” [...]

        Pu239, Thx the link.
        Imagine how much people's self esteem and energy would improve just knowing the truth. Energy wasted in confusion and self blame could be focused for solving their real problems.

        If truth was told about these chemicals,toxins in food and products,environments,building materials,pesticides like f'ing Round Up.
        If there was honesty about this subject there would be honesty about Fukushima.

        the denials, outright lies,wrong information disinformation apparently allowed legally must stop.

        It does not matter how much money is lost. It really doesn't. One cannot put a price on this truth. The truth will let the healing begin.

        People could then Marshall their thinking,build social support structures to help care for the injured children and adults. people would form new deeply empowered communities.Constructive interventions and help developed.

        as long as corporations can legally lie a soft genocide of epic proportions. The truth must come out and be known to the entire world.

        the known risk chemicals,GMOs ,radio active foods (hard to even type that) KNOWN toxic chemicals must be BANNED. Let the healing begin.
        the corporate "person"is not worth more than the human person.

        The dishonesty about known toxins is criminal negligence severe insult to severe injury. this world or lies can't win. Maybe this is why we are here to tell the truth.

    That's what I did back in 2011.03 (left Tokyo and Japan) and I could not agree more with this doctor, especially if you have children. The best thing to do when there is an uncontrollable nuclear accident is get as far away as possible from it.

      Criminal that any government east, or west would allow this to happen to its children. What is particularly tragic, is that these governments could have, and should have, prevented this from happening!

      Informed parents, would have made the correct choices to keep their children safe, and healthy.

      Officials responsible for this outrage should be held accountable, and
      imprisoned!

      A responsible leadership would have acted decisively, and not allowed this to happen.

      The only conclusion that can be drawn is we have a seriously ill
      leadership that lacks compassion. Their gods are power and money, their actions speak louder than words.

      We have to do more than just comment in these forums. The more people we educate the sooner change will happen.

          Quote from article

          "What are your thoughts on food contamination? Do you think there are any dietary precautions that people should be taking?"

          My suggestion,

          Food testing is needed, but we need an educated public to understand the risk levels, or they will do this.

          Raise the safety level, test and then tell it is safe. Here is an an actual example of this process being used.

          New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries Report June 2013:

          http://www.mpi.govt.nz/Default.aspx?TabId=126&id=1949

          Quote Page 9 “Summary”: (This was for imported Japanese tea.)

          “All results were well within Codex limits, with the highest results being
          76.7Bq/kg for 137Cs and 57.4Bq/kg for 134Cs.
          Total Cesium content 134.1 Bq/Kg.”

          (The codex limit for these radionuclides is 1000Bq/kg, which applies to foods for a year following a nuclear incident.)

          Quote Page 10 “Conclusion”:

          “The tea samples tested indicates that there is no concerning levels of
          radionuclide contamination in food products exported from Japan to New Zealand.”

          Comment:

          My Opinion:

          This New Zealand Ministry of Primary Industries New Zealand testing report, indicates that contaminated Japanese tea that tested above the Japanese 100 Bq/kg limit, was allowed to be sold to New Zealanders! This situation is not just isolated to New Zealand.

          Why would any country outside of Japan be using this criminal standard anyway?

          Japan isn’t even using using it!

    More doctors need to speak up. If you have access to free or cheap blood tests, wherever you live, it might be worth talking to your doctor and asking for the same tests. Who knows, start a movement, and help build some sort of national and global database. That way cause and effect may be better established. The scientific method, you know, ha ha.

    On December 26, 2013, Fukushima Minyu newspaper carried a report of an official acknowledgement by the city of Koriyama, saying that the city will use parking areas of the athletic field and the city hall, both situated in Kaiseizan park, as temporary underground storage for contaminated soil that is accumulated during decontamination operations.

    Every day, many citizens and children, including myself, have seen the burying of contaminated soil in the ground of the field, beside the Kaiseizan swimming pool (currently closed). The burying operation was finished a few months ago and the field has recently been restored to its normal function. Now, in the field, children play baseball, middle school students run, and elderly people enjoy gateball matches. Unfortunately, there are no signs or placards that indicate the existence of contaminated soil under the ground.

        I really think sometime in the near future they walk away. It's gotta have so much gamma shine coming off the entire site now that they will be forced out. More and more contamination comes up from the ground, look at the well readings. Three meltdowns, the pools, look at the site after #3, it was covered in orange cloud. Mox just pushed under ground maybe five-six feet down. The MOX fuel neutron beams turned all the steel on site into a gamma emitters. Can't get near 2,3, cores.

        How long before they are forced out. .. ?

    The children bear the brunt of the nuclear fallout from Nukushima. The unborn, fetuses in gestation, the newborn, infants, toddlers, young children, kids, teenagers…. They range from 10 times to a thousand times more sensitive to radiation than adults. The women are more sensitive than men.

    Japan must evacuate the children.

    " This pdf summarizes isotope measurement from fragments that apparently came from the Unit 3 explosion. I think this tells a lot about the nature of this explosion. Hard slogging, though. There is a significant and very dangerous amount of plutonium in these fragments, but the ratio of plutonium to cesium is tiny and much less than you would expect. These are mostly volatile elements. There is corium in it, but relatively small amounts. Cesium-137, silver-110m, antimony-125 are featured. It is possible that the explosion occurred prior to the melt-through, though there is a large amount of iron in the samples. Maybe part of it had melted through. The corium-concrete reaction would have occurred later, after the explosion. "

Reading the doctors words , his simple statements drove home a little bit of what this looks like on the ground.
      * and he said the people around him turn away. Most likely shock from the Earthquake and Tsunami and the never ending radiation. Do they want to just move on no matter how sick they and their children get? Its probably different for everyone. Its got to be beyond depressing.

    You can't have it both ways. Too many of these articles are biased. Some doctors say that the thyroid problems on the kids may or may not be Fukushima related, which is inherently bad. Now this doctor says children should evacuate Tokyo, he's seen as good. This site seems to use credibility as they please. Whether its a doctor, study, official, report, or even Gunderson, professor, physician, credible word of the day and they use it as they please. I'm just saying, it does no one good to use this in the biased way they are. That makes it more propaganda than accurate information.

    The doctor say this. Gunderson says this. The report says this. I'm sick of it. This site is the unequivocal leader of the disaster at Fukushima and as it is I see no urgency in the voices here. I see it more as a meeting place for non-nuclear advocates and chicken littles (although in this case the sky really is falling) more that a place where any action will be taken. This site in its own strange way actually does more for the advocacy of nuclear power than against it, in a very indirect way you are all being used. Two things I have learned for sure from this site-corperations do lie and Tepco is a big liar in an important issue, and, yes, the earth as we used to know it will be disappearing shortly. I'm just saying, when where there be a collective action on a global scale on this issue. No one aside from the few here really do care, and this is in an age of instance communication. That may be the more scary thing than the meltdown. No one cares.

It's not really worth paying for that. I get to work, that is about it. I haven't been able to afford to see a dentist for 15 years. I have missing teeth, and that's no life for a frog.

    I'm sick of hearing how clean and tidy the Japanese are. Also, they are a proud people. One thing that one learns at a very young age and may very well transfer across cultural borders is when you make a mess you clean it up. What happened, tidy Japanese, its been three years now and you tidy people haven't cleaned up your mess. I was impressed by your figure skater in the Olympics that did very well, set Olympic records, got the first score over 100, etc. He also looked good, but I wonder, as stunning as his costume was, did he have soiled underwear on underneath? Thats my analogy with this Fukushima power plant, could you stop poisoning the planet you tidy clean proud people? You made a mess, clean it up.

          You stunning Poopie-girl! My sink is full of dirty dishes again too. We should get together,so much in common! But I know no one is hookin up here. No trust. We be not stupid. Last month I was all poopie butt but me better now. No joke. Stereotypes suck. I can't get a job because my degree puts an idea in people's heads how I should be. But I'm not. Missing teeth and poopie butt. How would that look in a personal ad or a resume? I grow weary of expectations, and when I try, I really just get people suspicious, they think I'm up to something. I must be. It is amazing to me how little trust I get. I guess I need to own a broadcasting company like G.E. does. I'm really tired and ranting. Anyway, I know your Japanese, and I learned from you about calling people Japs. Thanks. What I hope for us all is a miracle. Some mysterious message here about 21 days a couple of days ago.

      paulie777…I am tired of hearing everyone blame the "Japanese" for the piece of junk GE Mark 1 reactors designed by "Americans" …what is up with you?

      Japan has been occupied since WW2, and has bought our sh***y bonds, reactors, and stocks to pump up our spend thrift economy for decades.

      People need to realize there are no Japanese, Americans, Chinese, Russians etc because every single HUMAN and lifeform on this planet suffers under wealthy corporations and governments paid for by those corp interests.

      Time to wake up to what is really going on in the world…we are all being murdered so someone can make a buck….

How about this Arnie, get off your armchair you grey haired mouthpiece and say something that carries more weight than "Its like a giant supersonic tractor trailer with a mast going right into Unit 3."

        Hello Ho Taters-as a general statement, I agree with most of your prior commentaries.

        Sometimes it seems many here comment without a full perspective of the pervasiveness of the nuclear cabal and its impact on our socio-political-economic realities.

        Arnie was a TMI whistle blower, and is outcast by the NP establishment and the NRC. I'm not sure what is expected of him to achieve sainthood and how many times he needs to engage in self sacrifice to convince skeptics he is generally commenting in the public's interest.

        On a personal note, I was abrupt with you in a prior exchange here on ENE in the last month or so. My apologies for that. Sometimes what is evident to us personally, should seem evident to others.
        Best regards, W.

        It's good Arnie comes across as he does. I feel he instills trust which is important with such a delicate matter; moving your family away from home perhaps forever. Or, preparing for your children to get sick. If he came off like a Dana or Kevin Blanch he'd loose people, esp. the Japanese, which should be his primary target.

      Paulie, I was not going to comment but since you are getting so much flack.
      Gundersen waits until something is already accepted by real activist before coming forward. Even after activist found tuna was contaminated Gundersen said he knew of no studies showing tuna was contaminated and told us it was safe to eat. At that time he told us the salmon was squeaky clean. At the time of the accident he told those on the west coast Not to take iodine tablets.

      Gundersen was paid to testify and to write reports during the TMI fight. $185 to $300 an hour. His credentials are over stated to say the least.

      He is held sacred and above critical observation by many. He is viewed as self serving or as participating as controlled opposition by some activist.

      You should continue to question Arnie Gundersen.

          Go to the archive and find my post, I linked to a recording where you can hear Arnie himself say it. In his own words. In my post I even took the time to give the time(s) of the video when he says them so people did not have to listen to the whole thing.

          Now, based upon that, or assuming that recording is as I have said, do you not agree Arnie Gundersen is convincingly discredited should he have said them?

    Nuclear power mythology is built on the lie of no resulting immediate health effect. In fact, the effects are widespread, long lasting, and affect women and children proportionally higher than men.

    Exposure to external radiation may be cumulative. Ionizing radiation dose-response relationships for internally deposited radionuclides is much more significant. The falsification of the liberation of radiation accidents is ongoing and pervasive.
    ac•ci•dent = n. (FD)1.a. An unexpected and undesirable event, especially one resulting in damage or harm b. An unforeseen incident…

    EU and DU weapons use in Eurasia and to its south, nuclear weapons testing, the toxic weapons processing sites in the countries possessing nuclear weapons, the locations where organized crime and national militaries have dumped waste, hydroshot tests
    (Eg.50 miles from SF at LLNL,etc.), Soviet dumping of reactors and waste into the Arctic Ocean, Sellafield and other processing discharges, etc., are not classified as accidents. Yet these emissions are a substantial contribution to the eternal pollution of the earth.

    Was FU unexpected (accident)? Minimization of geological instability, NPP technological challenges, national military interests, all redefine these meltdowns from acceptable risk to accident. Never mind the influence of nuclear mining/processing and NPP construction corporate international interests on risk assessment. The sacrifice of Tokyo children and their citizens is…

    There are 3 types of people in the World, two of which makes every problem MORE severe than it should be:

    The ones who care about fixing problems.
    The ones who caused the problems and continue to do so.
    The ones who are oblivious to everything including problems.

    Since doing the "Right Thing" and "Common Sense" is usually pushed aside so the people in charge, "don't waste a good disaster" that can benefit their agendas…the Public's responsibility is to always be vigilant and rein in these rogue elements of self-serving interests. (The Public has always had the ultimate power over authority because, they have the "numbers" and the people in charge don't! Unfortunately, the Public allows their power over situations to go unused.)

    The majority of people that comment on this site are very aware, intelligent, and creative thinkers that involve themselves directly in living in the World around them. But, the masses are self-absorbed and ignorant by design to the working of business, politics, and technology….to their peril…..

    So true and life itself can be very short and a perilous journey all on its own..

    I do not fault those who wish to live their lives in peace and harmony within the confines of their created oblivion. They have a right to live their lives as they choose.

    The problem I have is when the chosen life designed path is flawed purposefully by others. No one in this world should have to endure cancer from any technology that is/was thrust upon them unknowingly.

    We have made leaps and bounds in our pursuit of technology and some of it has been needed and good and some of it has been down right bad and flawed. The constant bombardment of this advancing technology has confused and challenged the common human mind like never before.

    The real challenge will be learning from our mistakes along the way and correcting them quickly enough and sadly Nuclear Technology already possesses a very poor track record on all fronts. :(

    Therefore it must go away now and quickly before anymore damage can be done to our planet… :)

    It seems the medical authorities in Fukushima are bent on coverup and deception for the most part.

    But it is possible to get the truth by traveling to southern Japan and seeing a doctor there. The clamp down and cover up is not 100%.

    Sadly, most people do not have the funds to travel and see doctors all over Japan.

    If the world had any common sense, empathy, heart, soul or love, 100s of millions of homes around the planet would open their doors for these people. All belongings stay. Then the Island can have a chance at some form of remediation and containment at best. And all atomic technology must be abolished. It is really the last step to be taken to save part of this planet to hopefully preserve the human species. I know this is an intrusive reality so it may inevitably go unnoticed in a look at me world. Though the awakening is still there for the taking by either tptb or the tenders' of the earth.

        I understand Dr. that's why I said "if". These people deserve to be offered better. Moving is complicated on many levels. Death will always be an option. I am sure there are noble elders and others who would choose to stay and help in the clean up. Though it should be Tepco and the mafia government. There are no easy solutions in most aspects of our money chain dominated society but it does not mean we can't continue to think freely and outside their controlled boxes.

    (1) No one in the government is responsible for testing anything related to nuclear releases.
    (2) The government can't afford the cost of testing the air, ocean, fish, food grown near the ocean, or water and milk supplies and reporting the data on a regular (say weekly basis) for all radio nucleids present in the samples – and provide an analyses as to the source of those present.
    (3) Neither the private sector or the government sector has the facilities (labs) to adequately test any samples collected for individual radio-nucleides – some can only test for emissions – which tell us nothing about the sources.
    (4) Bananas need to be kept out of the hands of terrorists.

    A Japanese Physician Is Encouraging the Evacuation of Tokyo
    February 14, 2014 Nelson Groom Journalistic Endeavours

    The physician has tested patients living in Tokyo, and the physician has found harmful symptoms.
    There have been abnormalities in the patients’ differential white-blood-cell count. The physician has seen a decline in the neutrophil component in white blood cells. The decline can lead to fatal conditions like septicemia.

    The physician can’t prescribe anything to the patients, because there are NOT any medicines to help.
    The physician has seen patients living in Tokyo who are badly affected, but when the patients move to western Japan, the patients get better. After the patients come back to Tokyo, it gets worse again.
    The physician recommends that anyone living in Tokyo head to western Japan 1 or 2 months out of the year.

    In Japan, commercial distribution is prosperous, so the contaminated food is definitely coming to Tokyo. Many people claim that we have to eat the local products to sustain the economy, but the physician thinks that we should be testing everything thoroughly, and that at least children should be spared from eating food with any risk of contamination.

    The Jewish tyranny that America is, destroyed hundreds of millions of innocent lives in the century since weap Judah took control of the issue of our money. With our purse, Judah built tens of thousands of nuclear bombs, and attacked us with them in the middle of the night.

    Our elders from space pulled off every Judah nuclear blast round that he shot at us. Not one has exploded over our heads. The big threat that remains, is Judah still has his 436 nuclear power plant dirty bombs. Even worse, Judah still has the authority to issue our money in his hands. With this power of the purse, Judah is hiring the open air burning of nuclear waste at Hitachi-GE. The plan of course is for it to blow big this summer.

    Must we not brace ourselves for it to then poison on out the entire North American continent?

    Must labor not STRIKE THEM OUT and take the authority to issue our money into its own hands?

    We've only got a short time left to save ourselves.

    Does labor not recognize that God's kids need help? Will you not help us live labor? We're being put to genocide by weap Judah.

    "Evacuation" is the wrong word as I have posted several times. Why would you come back in the future if the radiation made you sick and the poison will be dangerous for many years.

    "Relocation" is the correct word. Even if they only make it 200-300 miles west of Tokyo the odds fir longer lufe will be much better.
