A 95-year-old retired doctor is continuing to warn of possible health dangers to residents near the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant after some of them developed symptoms similar to those seen among atomic-bomb survivors he had treated for decades.
[Shuntaro] Hida said he has already received calls from residents around the Fukushima plant complaining of unexplained fatigue and diarrhea as well as hair loss, symptoms he suspects were exhibited as a result of internal exposure to radiation.
