Excerpts from a report by Dr. Yuri Hiranuma, a physician specializing neuromusculoskeletal medicine, published by Fukushima Voice version 2e, Aug 3, 2014:

[At the July 16, 2014 Expert Meeting Regarding the Status of Health Management of Residents Following the Tokyo Electric Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plan Accident, held by the Ministry of the Environment]

  • Toshihide Tsuda, a physician and an epidemiologist at Okayama University, has just emphatically stated that in certain Fukushima municipalities there was a clear evidence of a thyroid cancer epidemic […] Calling this an “outbreak, occurring only 3.1 to 3.2 years after the accident” […] “outbreak” of thyroid cancers in Fukushima children cannot be explained by the “screening effect,” when the data is analyzed and compared with the national cancer statistics as well as within Fukushima Prefecture against municipalities with the lowest exposure dose. Critical of the commonly accepted notion that health effects do not occur below 100 mSv, Tsuda presented numerous published studies that proved otherwise. […] “This Expert Meeting has not brought up these studies so I must do it” […]  Tsuda also said that the Expert Meeting should consider the fact that all age groups including pregnant women were still being exposed to radiation in Fukushima Prefecture. […] Tsuda said, “We are all being exposed to radiation in Japan” […]
  • [Committee] Chairman Shigenobu Nagataki, emeritus professor at Nagasaki University, a former chairman of Radiation Effects Research Foundation, and a mentor to infamous Shunichi Yamashita [said] “Committee members, please do not hesitate to ask questions. Given what was just stated, it will be disastrous for this committee to have to conclude that there is an actual increase in thyroid cancer (due to the Fukushima accident).” […] if the Expert Meeting were seriously considerate of the disaster victims […] why would it be disastrous for this Expert Meeting to have a conclusion that cases of thyroid cancers might be increasing? […]

Excerpts from an article by Japanese independent media outlet OurPlanet-TV summarizing the July 16 meeting, translated by Dr. Yuri Hiranuma, Aug. 3, 2014:

  • Professor Shinzo Kimura [who conducted] field investigations in Chernobyl, reported that currently there are many cases of thyroid cancer […] more than 250 km away from Chernobyl
  • Matsumoto City Mayor Sugenoya, who has provided medical care to children with thyroid cancer in Belarus [said] even in areas contaminated with low-level radiation with an annual radiation level below 1 mSv, residents showed a depressed immune function, hematopoietic disorders, and perinatal abnormalities [and] medical personnel are not allowed to refer to the Chernobyl accident.
  • Okayama University Professor Tsuda pointed out that there is no end of the number of researchers who say, “No cancer occurrence is expected from radiation exposure dose under 100 mSv,” after the Fukushima accident. Tsuda candidly said researchers should refrain from making such statements. […] As of the end of March 2014 [Nakadori, the central region of Fukushima that is 40-80 km from the Daiichi plant] had the highest detection rate [of thyroid cancer,] as much as 11 times higher than Aizu [western region of Fukushima, over 80 km from the plant]. […] thyroid cancers from municipalities other than Aizu region showed rates which were 15 to 40 times higher [than data from the National Cancer Center]. He sounded an alarm […] “It’s only been 3.1 to 3.2 years but there are so many cases observed in Fukushima. We need to take immediate countermeasures.” […] “They are still exposed  to radiation. We can’t wait until the results come out. […] All of us as well as Fukushima residents are being exposed to radiation.”
  • During this session, the audience applauded several times when  witnesses spoke.

  • Cisco Cisco

    See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. It's the radiation, Stupid!

    • OldFool

      I can say from direct knowledge that even 2 REM of radiation exposure is enough to cause little children to get thyroid cancer. This is the absolute truth.

      • OldFool

        2 REM is 20 milliSieverts. The most common thyroid cancer created will be papillary thyroid cancer or the follicular variant of papillary thyroid cancer. I don't know if follicular, medullary or anaplastic (the worst) thyroid cancers can be created by higher levels of irradiation of the thyroid, but I would not be surprised.

        • newsblackoutUSA newsblackoutUSA

          OldFool – can you explain how REM equates to Counts per minute?
          thx

          • OldFool

            Converting from REM to CPM is difficult without far more information about the type of radiation, the distance from the source, and the specific type of detector. First you need to convert REM to Rad.
            For x-rays, gamma rays, and beta particles – 1 Rad = 1 REM
            For neutrons, there is a quality factor to get REMs – 1 Rad = 5 to 20 REMs, depending on the neutron energy level.
            For alpha particles, the quality factor is 20 – 1 Rad = 20 REMs. (This is why it is a good thing that alpha particles typically travel only 1-2 inches in air. This is also why getting alpha emitters, like cute little Plu-kun, inside your lungs is not good.)
            Then you have to convert Rad to a specific Geiger counter's Counts Per Minute. There should be some manufacturer's calibration reference tables to do this. What a Geiger counter picks up is only a fraction of the radiation emitted, mostly gammas, depending on the distance from the radiation source and specific detector's total cross-sectional area. The detector needs to get right next to the source to detect most of the alpha particles, with the beta shield off to detect the betas too. Perhaps someone can find and post a conversion table to other units for CPMs at a specific distance with a specific Geiger counter, without the beta shield in place on the detector.

            • newsblackoutUSA newsblackoutUSA

              OldFool- So where I live these are the readings:

              Gamma………Beta
              6867…………..104
              6962…………..124
              7131…………..162
              7236…………..189
              7301…………. 203
              7207…………195

              Normal background is usually 3000-4000 gamma 20-30 beta

              What would this mean?

              • OldFool

                Are you living downwind from some reactor or nuclear waste dump site?

                • newsblackoutUSA newsblackoutUSA

                  I live in Riverside, we get all the smog that blows in from the ocean to the east. It lays against the foothills.

                  These are San Diego's readings over the past week:
                  Gamma…..Beta
                  8589, …….72
                  9252, ……134

                  9462, ……172
                  8674, …….92
                  8450, …….64

                  • Having watched Radnet data for the last three years I believe that "background" levels have increased substantially. Enenewser Vital1 has been keeping very careful statistics on Australia's increase in radiation.

                    No doubt, the world is becoming far more radioactive within a very short historical period.

                    Its not just nuclear as more burning of coal also increases rad levels substantially.

                    But I believe Fukushima is a tipping point for many beings because its such a massive, ongoing eruption.

                    Summary of research reported here by Enenews:

                    “During the passage of contaminated air masses from Fukushima, airborne 137Cs levels were globally enhanced by 2 to 3 orders of magnitude” (cited in Masson et al., 2013; Masson et al., 2011)

                    the “129I/127I ratio in Fukushima precipitation in March 2011 immediately after the Fukushima accident was more than 3 orders of magnitude higher than the background level of this region page” (Xu et al., 2013, p. 10851).

                    • People living in heavily contaminated areas in Japan are expected to face up to a 4 Sievert lifetime dose from external exposure alone (see Ioannidou et al., 2014, p. 858)

                      OF COURSE THERE IS A THYROID CANCER EPIDEMIC among children.

                      If people knew the truth they would panic because food and water are contaminated.

                      Panic is the great fear of our leaders, not extinction from eco-system collapse and genomic instability.

                      I don't believe that elites are deliberately killing off selected group.

                      Genocide is most often an externality of greed, arrogance, and denial.

                      majia- my sister came to visit me in San Diego Diego from Marsh 18-26, 2011. We walked in the rain….went to the beach..etc…six months later she was diagnosed with tumors on her thyroid. She never had any prior thyroid problems. I still feel guilty about this as she lives in the Midwest and would not have been exposed to the Plume that hit the West Coast of California had she not visiting.

                    • Newsblackout you shouldn't hold yourself responsible for your sister's cancer because:

                      1. Midwest has plenty of local rad contamination and carcinogenic agents that could have caused tumors (and most likely did because tumors are unlikely to arise 6 months after exposure)

                      2. Midwest has had plenty of Fuku rainouts and its unlikely all rain in CA is contaminated with Fuku radionuclides (yet)

                      Evidence of neutron leakage at the Fukushima nuclear plant from measurements of radioactive 35S in California
                      Based on a moving box model, we show that the observed activity enhancement in Graphic is compatible with long-range transport of the radiation plume from Fukushima. Our model predicts that Graphic, the concentration in the marine boundary layer at Fukushima, was approximately 2 × 105 atoms per m3, which is approximately 365 times above expected natural concentrations.

                      [excerpted] I-131 was quantified and adjusted for decay to the time of sample collection for five whole-water wet-deposition samples from California, Colorado, and Washington. The activities of the quantified I-131 ranged from 29.6 to 1,090 pCi/L, and calculated deposition values ranged from 211 to 5,100 Bq/m2. Several weeks transpired between sample collection and analysis of the I-131 in the water samples, which were prioritized for analysis from west (high priority) to east (low priority). Therefore, I-131 activities likely decayed in most of the samples before they could be measured. (page 26)[end]

                      Note that measured I-131 levels were probably vastly undercounted since I-31 has an 8 day half-life.

        Doctors are "unsure" because they haven't found a scapegoat to blame it on.

        The thyroid cancers that resulted from 9/11 were casually blamed on asbestos and other "office debris" in the dust. Obviously to cover for the real culprit.

        Think about all those nuclear tests back in the 50's and the resulting lung cancers. The scapegoat was tobacco. A product that was hawked by the media for years before when some brands were even doctor recommended. Then people who didn't smoke got lung cancer, so the "second-hand smoke" theory was born.

    Questioning the Very Status of the Ministry of the Environment
    Expert Meeting Regarding
    the Status of Disaster Victims' Health Management

    It might have been a slip of a tongue, but Chairman Shigenobu Nagataki, an emeritus professor at Nagasaki University, a former chairman of Radiation Effects Research Foundation, and a mentor to infamous Shunichi Yamashita, appeared to be speaking earnestly when he said, "Committee members, please do not hesitate to ask questions. Given what was just stated, it will be disastrous for this committee to have to conclude that there is an actual increase in thyroid cancer [due to the Fukushima accident]." Toshihide Tsuda, a physician and an epidemiologist at Okayama University, has just emphatically stated that in certain Fukushima municipalities there was a clear evidence of a thyroid cancer epidemic in those who were 18 or younger at the time of the March 2011 accident. Calling this an “outbreak, occurring only 3.1 to 3.2 years after the accident,” Tsuda stressed that in the near future, thyroid cancer would begin to appear in those with relatively longer latency periods, which means a quick action is needed to secure adequate medical resources in order to be able to provide diagnosis and treatment in a timely manner.

    Using Animal Thyroids as Ultra-Sensitive Biomonitors for Environmental Radioiodine – Environmental Science & Technology (ACS Publications)
    http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/es303280g
    In the course of the Fukushima nuclear accident large amounts of radionuclides relevant to the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban-Treaty (CTBT) were released and detected globally. We could show that the intake of environmental 131I into the thyroids of animals can be used for verification of the CTBT. Due to continuous accumulation of 131I, its apparent half-life in the thyroid biomonitor exceeds the physical one, thus making 131I detectable three weeks longer than using conventional CTBT-grade high volume air samplers. The maximum 131I activity concentrations (in Bq/kg) found in Austrian animal thyroids after the Fukushima nuclear accident could be correlated with the maximum activity concentrations found in air (Bq/m3) in Austria via a factor of 1.1 × 106. In fall 2011, a second (much smaller) release of 131I occurred from a laboratory in Hungary, where this factor was 1.9 × 106. Hence thyroid biomonitors offer even some quantitative information, which allows the estimation of the 131I activity concentrations in air. It could be shown that thyroid biomonitors can work under dry conditions, which potentially makes them the method of choice for CTBTO on-site inspections even in arid environments.

    My god how bad is this really….if they are admitting to 15 – 40 times more cases of thyroid cancers..add one or two zeros? Do the people in Japan get to read this info? How could there not be riots? What is the treatment for this? Removing the thyroid? If so it should be easy to count the scars..they wont be able to hide that…the fuku smile…

    • It'll get more challenging to produce a Fuku smile with a Chernobyl necklace (thyroid removal scar around the neck).

      Apologies for yet another debris report, but the article contains other information confirming what we've all been saying. It says there is a lot of debris near Langara Island (northern tip of the Queen Charlotte Islands, and just north west of Vancouver Island (where I live).

      VIDEO: Fishermen Report ‘Waist-High’ Fukushima Debris in Pacific

      "Canadian fishermen off the coast of Langara Island in British Columbia say they are seeing “waist-high” debris from Fukushima, Japan, that goes on for up to 15 miles floating in the Pacific Ocean. They are concerned that some of this detritus may be radioactive or contaminated by toxic waste as a result of the now-infamous meltdown of the Fukushima-Daiichi power plant in 2011."

                  • clamshellernh clamshellernh

                    Did he improve on how the study was conducted ..

                  • clamshellernh clamshellernh

                    In conclusion, the study by Mangano, Sherman and Busby has critical flaws: 1) incorrectly taking raw positive screenings (TSH >=29 μIU/ml) to be confirmed CH cases, thus disregarding the correct number of actually confirmed CH cases they received from the CDPH; 2) defining a meaningless diagnostic category of “borderline” cases that has no basis in the screening program or in medical practice; and 3) claiming that the faux rate they conjured (positive screening results plus "borderline" screening results) is a valid construct; and 4) claiming that the CH increase in 2011 was statistically significant, whereas the plotting of the number of actual clinically confirmed cases from 2009 to 2012 clearly shows no significant increase.

                    Other important issues to be raised about this Expert Meeting have to do with the potential conflict of interest. For instance, Niwa, also a member of International Committee on Radiation Protection (ICRP) , is known to have received financial support from the Federation of Electric Power Companies of Japan for his travel expenses to the ICRP meetings5. Although the WHO Expert Group cleared his conflict of interests in this matter, citing his expertise in molecular biology and radiation biology, he certainly appears to have a conflict of interest for the MOE Expert Meeting.

                    Niwa is not the only one with the potential conflict of interest. Chairman Nagataki is currently a chairman of the board of Radiation Effects Foundation6, which arranged financial assistance from the Federation of Electric Power Companies of Japan to Niwa. Some of the members, Nobuhiko Ban and Toshimitsu Honma, were involved with the making of UNSCEAR Fukushima report. Yasuhito Sasaki is a former committee chairmann of UNSCEAR.

                    With the deviation from its original mission and the apparently predetermined conclusion to underestimate health risks, along with the potential conflicts of interest in multiple members, is it not time to question the very status of the Expert Meeting Regarding the Status of Health Management of Residents Following the Tokyo Electric Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Accident?

            • We Not They Finally

              I believe that Mangano (along with Janette Sherman adn Chris Busby) has gotten attacked A LOT for his work. But the reality is that 36% of the kids in the area were already confirmed to have thyroid nodules and/or cysts by May, 2012, so it's a big nasty upsetting "duh" that OF COURSE they have a thyroid epidemic on their hands. Anyone working on it should go full speed ahead. The more verifications, the better.

              • newsblackoutUSA newsblackoutUSA

                WNTF- Exactly, and it is annoying that a doctor would attack someone trying to protect children. It makes me wonder why….I have many links saying the exact same thing as Mangano, except they never mention radiation, why isn't Dr. Yuri Hiranuma attacking them?

        Good, Dr. Joseph Mangano's reporting on increased risk of thyroid cancer to infants and children on the West Coast of the U.S. got airplay in San Diego. Funny, though, they had the usual disclaimer about radiation levels at 6.3 or 6.5 times normal still being "low level."

        Talking out of both sides of their mouth, but at least Dr. Mangano's findings got air play.

  • The latest Conca shill push is for "more radiation" and now its "listen to us because we call ourselves scientists". A few comments from a reader at Forbes are below. I think he nails the issues nicely. Go visit the article at Forbes too and leave a comment.

    Also to keep this "science" thing in context, bear in mind the number of scientists who continue to lie about "global warming". Nukepro settled that issue once and for all. There has been no warming for the last 17 years. Here is the proof using real data.

    No mention of any of the other problems that radiation causes? Like dropping dead of a heart attack? They pretend that it only causes cancer. The man who wrote an account of his town taking in Pripyat evacuees talked about them dropping dead out working in the fields. Just not coming back. Then the Soviet Union scattered them far and wide so they couldn't be tracked, even though the townspeople wanted to stay near their neighbors. They didn't want anyone tracking their health.

    Dear all here at ENENEWS,

    just want to say 'thank you' to each and everyone of the regulars here. I am just a lay person and cannot make good factual contributions, so I fell silent here. But I want you to know that I am on this site at least 3 times a day, that I am talking about the issue to whoever has ears and a brain, that I give out information and recommend this web site right and left. I am sure there are many more like me – watching and supporting from the backgrounds… I want you to know that.

    Without the community here I would probably be very lost. It is essential for me to know you are all out there, and that we are all rooted in the same desire – to educate and inform about – and stop the use of nuclear power. I am sending my love and gratitude out to all of you, you are my heroes . The pain and heart break I feel in the face of what is going on cannot be expressed in words; sharing it with all of you who care makes it easier to bear.

    May all beings be free of suffering, may all beings be happy.

    I am appalled by the suffering that has been/is being endured by all; yes all. I notice Dr. Goodheart linked on another thread to Robert Lanza's work on stem cells. Dr. Robert Lanza was selected for the 2014 TIME 100 list of the hundred most influential people in the world, along with Pope Francis, Robert Redford, and other artists, pioneers, leaders, titans and icons.

    DOES DEATH EXIST? NEW THEORY SAYS NO.
    I first came across Lanza's work two years ago and it was this aspect, not his stem cell research that I found very interesting, his approach had been from the material aspect, I had been viewing it from the metaphysical :

    DOES DEATH EXIST? NEW THEORY SAYS NO
    "We believe in death because we’ve been taught we die. Also, of course, because we associate ourselves with our body and we know bodies die. End of story. But biocentrism – a new theory of everything – tells us death may not be the terminal event we think. Amazingly, if you add life and consciousness to the equation, you can explain some of the biggest puzzles of science. For instance, it becomes clear why space and time – and even the properties of matter itself – depend on the observer. It also becomes clear why the laws, forces, and constants of the universe appear to be exquisitely fine-tuned for the existence of life., …" http://www.robertlanzabiocentrism.com/does-death-exist/

      Chew on that for a while folks.Turn of your phone ,tv,computer…find a peaceful place(mine is outside)and just THINK .I know this world is not the end for me!Come what may Im ready…Peace and Love to all no matter what your beliefs are.
      ONE….my ONE is the Creator ,as im one with the Creator…

        my bad "energy never dies ,it cannot be created or destroyed"
        Dr.Robert Lanza I guess matter is the same?

        • Angela_R

          Dunkilo, they used to say that about matter as well. Unsure of the current thought.

          Extract below:
          "THE CONSCIOUSNESS FIELD AND THE END OF SUFFERING

          The material universe is composed of much more than random objects. In fact, the foundation of life cannot be limited to matter alone but energy also becomes a force behind a vast interconnected universe. Here consciousness is considered non-physical in the sense of classical physics since it is working as the observer at the quantum level. In fact, consciousness is entangled in living systems, but is not limited to a singular "mind-body" field. This further implies that consciousness does not exclusively reside within the brain, but is entangled with it. Thus, we assert that life is a function of the flow which at the highest level is called Love, that is represented as a higher resonance that activates greater degrees of admittance for the bio-lattice. Positive, sustaining powers of "active love" is what is behind the harmonious interactions and energy balances which are the basis of the true sustaining physics of the universe.

          To find out more about these topics including remote viewing and Buddhist thinking we suggest our book: "The End of Suffering"

          btw. I think Dr. Hurtak and Robert Lanza have discussed their ideas together.

      this almost sounds like smile and you will be ok. The world is not all under our personal control. Some things are but not all of the things you attribute. Might find yourself blaming the victim.

  • For good background, here is EPA evidence from air samples that 100 tons of radioactive materials was aerosolized and pelted the Pacific and the Pacific coast.

    Yeah, guys [re above article.] Facing reality is "disastrous." NOT facing reality is "mega-disastrous." So how many people have to die before YOU can figure out how to face reality?

    • name999 name999

      we obviously don't live forever. Get a clue on that. Death is a great teacher and you won't get away so easily thinking we don't die. Look around you. But we are changing the face of death to something artificial and that is the problem. Killing the world around us. That does not have to happen.

      • Angela_R

        name999,
        you are free to accept what you wish. As I am, and personally I really would not want to live on with the kind of personalities that I have sometimes seen in this life.

    Here is my 4kg cancer….just two minutes old, so it's actually still alive. It recently ate my left kidney and had a choke hold on my spleen when they grabbed it out.
    My Doc agreed it could have been a nook flee that caused it.
    I wanted to take it home and feed it Gene Mod food so it would grow some legs and a head because my dog died recently….but when I asked the Doc just stared at me a moment and prescribed a double dose of radiation.

    • EKO SAY NO 2 DEMOCIDE

      Dan, best wishes & energy vibes to you. Universal energy, not man made pervert energy. Keep up with pure foods and testifying your story.

      Thank you for sharing.

      Have you ever tried bitter melon, from Asia? Slice 2 10mm slices, take out seeds, blend in a juice shake. If you are diabetic be careful as bitter melon can drastically reduce sugar in blood. Combining with diabetic medications can cause a severe low. It has been used in Asia for centuries as a sugar reducer and anti-cancer natural food.

    is it me or is anybody else noticing the recent "push" to equate TEPCO as being the creator of all problems fukushmia, "Tokyo Electric Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plan Accident".. i've also noticed this in the court case with the sailors with wording like, TEPCO, recognized as designers of FNPP, yes, tepco imo is liable, but GE designed the mark 1. GE knew losing electricty would cause this problem and with the push their making for a disconnect in all lawsuits for the design issues, it just gives me that swarmy creepy feeling inside. thanks to dr goodheart for this link http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2014/06/fukushima-fires-up-nuclear-industrys.html#!/2014/06/fukushima-fires-up-nuclear-industrys.html
    also, i know the number would be astronomical, but is there a model for putting a price on the cost to humanity worldwide for this event including turning the pacific into a radioactive toilet, loss of livelihoods, cancers, disposing of bodies considered toxic waste, etc? i think we need to start billing these private corps for the cost.

    From the report:

    "Niwa felt that doses were overestimated due to various issues with assumptions utilized in dose estimation. He repeatedly asked the Expert Group to employ more realistic methods to estimate doses, but the Expert Group chose to stick to higher estimate doses, taking a conservative and cautious approach based on a radiation protection concept. Niwa says he disagreed with the Expert Group's decision and argued that the conservative approach certainly would be reasonable and indeed very important in a prospective estimation, but that it would not be appropriate to retrospectively estimate unnecessarily high doses in those who were already exposed. Niwa disclosed during the discussion that he suggested reducing the estimated doses by one tenth, but that the Expert Group never incorporated his suggestions. (After the meeting was over, Tsuda and Niwa carried out further, informal discussion on whether the thyroid cancer cases in Fukushima were due to the screening effect or not.

    • HoTaters HoTaters

      cont ….

      "Tsuda asked Niwa if he has ever read a single published study regarding a screening effect. Niwa replied, “No, not myself.” Tsuda, speaking with a freelance journalist, Oshidori Mako, expressed his disappointment and frustration with the Expert Meeting, as the so-called experts were not even familiar with studies published on health effects of radiation below 100 mSv. Tsuda felt that it was impossible to carry out sufficient arguments as the grasp of the basic knowledge differed so much)."

      And a couple more telling paragraphs:

      "Critical of the commonly accepted notion that health effects do not occur below 100 mSv, Tsuda presented numerous published studies that proved otherwise. In fact, he by far exceeded 10 minutes allotted for each of the five expert witnesses that day, and Nagataki had to nudge him to wrap up more than twice. Tsuda defiantly replied, “This Expert Meeting has not brought up these studies [as it should have], so I must do it [for you],” and went on until he was done.

      Tsuda explained that in outbreak epidemiology, which was developed as an investigative tool in studying disease outbreaks where the cause isn't always apparent, the effect (disease) is what is studied and dealt with. He called the Expert Meeting's fixation on dose assessment “backwards” and “a mere laboratory method.” Tsuda said to Nagataki, 'We must remember that this is an issue of humans.' "

      • HoTaters HoTaters

        Lastly (part of paragraphs above):

        Tsuda also said that the Expert Meeting should consider the fact that all age groups including pregnant women were still being exposed to radiation in Fukushima Prefecture. This drew an applause from the audience of general public, which made Nagataki displeased. He said, “Um, this applause…haven't the audience been asked not to applause ahead of time?” This statement also appeared to startle Nagataki and other members, such as Otsura Niwa, a retired Kyoto University Professor who holds a position of Special Professor at Fukushima Medical University. Both Nagataki and Niwa, in disbelief, had to confirm with Tsuda what he meant. Tsuda said, “We are all being exposed to radiation in Japan, except the air dose rate is higher in Fukushima.”

        (Admin, this is four paragraphs, total. Long article, so I think it's within your guidelines, thank you.)

    The Japanese Government continues to play hide and seek with the people of Japan and the rest of the world.Its radiation you greed ridden excuse for human beings…This is a perfect example of the loss of any redemption those leaders of this world community and so called leaders could have had.Now they are selling their souls to the devil.
