Japan Times: No one yet wants to think about potential effects of radiation on babies born around this autumn

Published: June 11th, 2011 at 10:29 pm ET


Mutant rabbits, economic meltdowns and nuclear tourism, Japan Times, June 12, 2011:

[…] “I’ve been raising rabbits for over 10 years, and this is the first time something like this has happened,” the clearly disturbed owner, a woman in her 50s, tells Flash (June 14).

[…] the earless bunny was definitely conceived after the March 11 accident. […]

A professor of zoology at the Tokyo Institute of Technology would not rule out the possibility of the birth defect being caused by radiation exposure to the mother rabbit, but he told Flash it would be difficult to ascertain the cause of the mutation. Needless to say, no one at this stage even wants to think about the potential effects on the humans who will be born from around this autumn. […]

    The Japanese nuclear adviser Toshiso Kosako that did think about this possibility quit and criticized the government as resigned in tears. Remember? He was right.

    sarcasm I hope

    from the doctor of the previous news article doing the radiation study…

    “all the infants who have been born this fall that are deformed are from mothers who are weak in spirit and so have babies who are weak, this is a good thing and shows us who is weak.”


    unfortunately I can see this self-righteous sycophant spewing this unscientific shite

    • Fall out man!

      Yep, that’s exactly what the guy is saying.

      This reminds me of their earlier coverup:

    This is a big deal for the USA as well. As long as that fallout is coming over there will certainly be a lowering of the birth rate. A nations wealth is in its people. No people = no nation. Japan may just cease to exist.

    I have previously seen a site (cannot find it now) that looked at birth rates in the USA both in the 50’s and after Chernobyl. Nuke testing, and Chernobyl both caused drops in the birth rate in the months after a radiation release. (rates did come back up again though)

    For a Nation like Japan with a low birth rate already, this is another nail in its lead lined coffin.

    When I hear this I think of that head of Japanese Medicine quoted as saying ““Effects of radiation do not come to people that are happy… They come to people that are weak-spirited”

    By his logic, these poor women who have “Fukushima babies” will be at fault for not being positive enough about Tepco’s radiation! Not only will these poor people be crushed at what has happened to their children, they will then be blamed for the crime that was inflicted upon them by their leaders. The victim becomes portrayed as the criminal.

    • milk and cheese milk and cheese

      Yes, he is blaming the victims. The rabbit is a warning. I am very sorry for the pregnant women and children of Japan.

  • gonefission gonefission

    I think its pretty obvious this is just evolution, you know how easily radioactive particles would find the way into a normal bunnies ears? Sheeesh 🙂

  • SteveMT

    These people are either living in the past or thinking about the future, but never are they making the crucial life-saving decisions in the present. So why isn’t this guy thinking “prevention” rather than waiting while doing nothing except whining about it. He is also talking about bad things happening in Autumn when Summer hasn’t even begun.

    “Needless to say, no one at this stage even wants to think about the potential effects on the humans who will be born from around this autumn. […]”

    One more thought. Enenews could do a press release on how their site was hacked, and how such an effort has been made to wreck it with bizarre comments from trolls. Combined with the recent main stream press news about how governments hire small armies of people to influence the public through comments posted to sites such as this, I think it would be very thought provoking.

    No doubt the nuke industry, the Japanese, and the US govts all have professionals hiring large numbers of people to mess up key informational sites such as this one.

    Thanks for the useful information Enenews. There is no doubt the information on your site for many people will literally be life saving.

    (As an aside, I got caught out by the hackers redirecting enenews to another site as well. I have changed my password now as a result.)

    • Misitu

      I am not sure about the hack.

      An intrusion of this nature usually relies on a network of PCs which have been subverted to run invisible processes to send information back to base. These networks are part of organised crime. Their technology usually advances quite rapidly and is always one step ahead of the antivirus agencies and several ahead of law enforcement. A good online AV monitor is your first defence. And to conclude any bunch of industry paid subversives are likely to be several plodding steps behind the law enforcers.

      It would be simpler just to post a few misleading comments about the site being hacked. Contributors (as did I) would immediately be concerned about identity theft and subsequently about the credibility of the site as a whole.

      Spreading FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt) has always been an effective weapon of the few over the many.

      At best the nonsense about the fenews redirect hack was a paranoid misunderstanding, at worst a deliberate subversion attempt. I would like James2 to comment please. I am prepared to be wrong.

      After a lifetime in computers I know that any assumption can be wrong: all I can give here are my best informed analyses based on the evidence available.

      My 99.9% conclusion is that there never was a hack.

  • FML

    OMG you’re the one being a troll. The site was never hacked and there was no redirection to Fenenews. That domain is not even puchased. For the last time 3A is hex for ‘:’ and 2F is hex for ‘/’ so
    http%3A%2F%2Fenenews.com%2F is the same as you typing in http://www.enenews.com/ and that’s where your login is being directed.

    Okay I’m going to stop feeding trolls now.

    • sirasa

      Agree. Also another poster said “hacked! Look! fenews.com is a registered domain!”. They missed out the extra “en” in fenenews.com (which isn’t even a registered domain).

    • I think it was hacked. The other night I could not logon and when I typed in the address I was re-directed to Barnes and Noble.

      I was not the only person who had this experience.

    • radegan

      Only unhappy readers are being misdirected, try singing a merry song while you long in.

    • Misitu

      Feeding trolls, sorry. My personal taste is if possible to publish a detailed and boring reasoned rebuttal for the benefit of those who need to know. Also ties up the “brain” of the troll for hours as they need to pass said rebuttal up the chain for reference to “higher” powers, or they just give up.

      My siamese kitten has learnt to catch flies by stunning them with a swift clip of the front paw. And then munch munch.

      That’s sort of the idea.

    Some time around 1987, no long after Chernobyl, there was a long technical story in the IEEE journal Spectrum.

    That story covered a LOT of details about the after effects of Chernobyl.

    What was very clear from the data collected was that for NYC, Boston, Montreal and Toronto, birth defects measured 9 months (+/- maybe a few weeks) later essentially DOUBLED for all four cities. Each city had very close to the doubling effect.

    We are all down wind.

  • California Dreaming

    My heart breaks when i read about the fallout’s effect on babies and pregnant women — 35% increase in infant mortality in northwest is only the beginning if we look at the stats on chernobyl, already assuming best case scenario. the deafening silence in mainstream media is obscene, especially when seattle (and probably ca) is ingesting 50% of hot particles as the japanese acc to fairewinds. when i raised the possibility about ingesting radioactive particles as the cause of strange trembling episodes and illnesses in parents groups, i am still met with silence. after all, i don’t have a MD after my name, and pediatricians say everything is fine — just drink more milk and eat more leafy vegs. i hope for more parents will find this website, and empower themselves to know the truth.

    Also, BIG thank you for all the ENE advice on detox, food and filtered water. My immunity and energy level is back up, no more strange metallic taste in my mouth since my detox. My baby’s energy is also up, trembling has decreased. Still have my airplane ticket as an insurance policy — thanks to Tacomagroove’s passionate words. Just go easy on Emmy. After all, we are part of a community with different points of view. I live in the Bay Area, and between Stanford and Cal, there are plenty of nuclear scientists and Nobel Prize winners. I’ve talked to several of them, and they are the ones who say drinking 1000 gallons of cesium milk is fine. I’m just grateful that I’ve found the ENE community.

    • War Is Peace

      Just curious, what was the advice on detox, food and water filtration? If you would direct me to that page, I would greatly appreciate it!

    • Misitu

      People working in the nuclear engineering industry seem to have horse blinkers over their eyes and a demagnetised moral compass.

      At least the Japanese can claim a long honourable cultural bias for their daft policies.

    Evacuation the only long term answer
    Lessons from Bikini Atoll

    Quote from Wikipedia

    “The dose received from background radiation on the island(Bikini Atoll) was found to be between 2.4 mSv/year and 4.5 mSv/year (the lower rate is the same as natural background radiation) assuming that a diet of imported foods were available.[18] But it was because of these food risks that the group eventually did not recommend fully resettling the island.” -IAEA Bikini Advisory Group Report

    The contamination of the food chain led to the evacuation of the island after 8 years of partial resettlement.

    “In 1968 the United States declared Bikini habitable and started bringing a small group of Bikinians back to their homes in the early 1970s as a test. In 1978, however, the islanders were removed again when strontium-90 in their bodies reached dangerous levels after a French team of scientists did additional tests on the island.[10]

    It was not uncommon for women to experience faulty pregnancies, miscarriages, stillbirths and damage to their offspring as a result of the nuclear testing on Bikini.[11]

    The United States provided $150 million as a settlement for damages caused by the nuclear testing program.[12]”

    No Bikini Atoll

    An eight year test of exposure to low “safe” levels of radiation using human test subjects ending in evacuation and 150 million dollar settlement.

    Clearly, the resulting tragedy, death and mutation caused by deemed safe low level exposures over years, externally and internally is documented here in the tiny Bikini population.

    Again, we see that the big issue was identified as bio-accumulation of radioactive particles in the food chain.

    “The special International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Bikini Advisory Group determined in 1997 that “It is safe to walk on all of the islands … although the residual radioactivity on islands in Bikini Atoll is still higher than on other atolls in the Marshall Islands, it is not hazardous to health at the levels measured … The main radiation risk would be from the food: eating locally grown produce, such as fruit, could add significant radioactivity to the body …Eating coconuts or breadfruit from Bikini Island occasionally would be no cause for concern. But eating many over a long period of time without having taken remedial measures might result in radiation doses higher than internationally agreed safety levels.”[17]

  • Noah

    The same bio-accumulation in the food chain, seen in Bikini, is occurring downwind of Fukushima. (Repost)

    Radioactive particles are accumulating in soil and water resources all across the Northern Hemisphere, along with additional higher background radiation totals.

    Clearly the Bikini re-population experiment has demonstrated what the future will look like for mankind, in as little as 8 years.

    “It was not uncommon for women to experience faulty pregnancies, miscarriages, stillbirths and damage to their offspring …”

    Apart from water purification and the importation or growing of radiation free foods, there is little that can be done to prevent the ingestion of contaminated foods and water. Once ingested, removal and protection by supplementation and cleansing protocols are second line defensive/protective strategies.

    To maintain these remedial actions indefinitely are impossible, given limited time and financial resources of individual family units. However, taking protective actions now will buy families time, time to think, time to discuss and plan a reasonable course of action.

    The Bikini re-population experiment ultimately failed due to the power of the principle of bio-accumulation and the bio-physics of internal emitters.

    A similar re-population experiment is going on in Japan. Sending school children into active fallout zones to attend school.

    Evacuation, the only long term solution

    Bikini history has already taught us, that ultimately evacuation is the only long lasting answer through the years.

    Great comment, Noah, many thanks.

    I just ordered many of the things recommended in this article from http://www.iherb.com, they have great prices and selection and they gave me a coupon code to give to friends and family for $5 off first order…it’s kid021. They also have free shipping for orders over $40. I’ve been using them for a few years, they are very reliable. I got NAC, ALA, kelp, chlorella, melatonin, zeolite, natural vitamin E (E-gems elite), astaxanthin, etc. I guess that’s all we can do right now…avoid what we can, and take antioxidants and detox.
