On April 25, YAMATANI Eriko, Member of the House of Councillors (National Diet of Japan) read an interview with Katsutaka Idogawa, mayor of Futaba, translated by Fukushima Diary

[…] Japanese government submit SPEEDI data to US and concealed it from Japanese people. Even now, SPEEDI data is not given to Futaba town.

[…] We were not even informed of venting.

[…] I’m losing my hair and have nosebleed everyday. The other day, I asked for blood test at a hospital in Tokyo because I’m exposed but they refused it. We were even exposed and there is even no treatment, or proper inspection. Medical check up for Fukushima citizens are not detailed enough either.

More about Yamatani: […] First elected to the House of Representatives in 2000. First elected to the House of Councillors in 2004 (Proportional Representation Constituency). Became Parliamentary Secretary of the Cabinet Office in 2005, Special Advisor to the Prime Minister (education rebuilding) in 2006, Director of the LDP Women’s Affairs Division in 2008, Chairman of the H. C. Committee on Environment in 2009, and Director of the H. C. Committee on Cabinet in 2010. […]

    Refusing to test people!! That is just wrong, it is time for them to admit their problems and ask for the worlds help.

    • They are not wanting the truths to come out, liabilities, cost for care, they can kill the deformed children as they are born, but how can they hide the cancers in young and old ??
      Look at Chernobyl and how the Russian hid it for years !

    • Frances

      As I have commented so many times before, Japan will avoid asking for assistance because this involves LOSING FACE.

  • apostrophes

    Note to Mayor: Fly to another country. Get a test. Then go back and tell EVERYONE.

    • dharmasyd dharmasyd

      @ apostrophes & any Japanese speakers here…I hope you will tramslate this comment and get it to Yamatani.

  • I believe an exchange of nuclear arsenal's are coming 'soon' for a number of forgone reasons in the news, and one to keep truths of where the isotopes came from that will do so much harm and will be impossible to say around the world what your cancer/illness came from !

      Hi xdrfox

      They have protected the corporations through this on going disaster and the gulf disaster. How fair will they go to keep protecting them?
      We are not in their plan, they have their places to escape to, they never made plans for the people, we are parasites to them.

        How "far" will they go, to keep protecting them?

        You stated above that the have prepared places for themselves to hide… Where? Do they have another planet? There's only this one as far as I know… Right? They are possessed! They will distort, Pervert, and destroy all life in this world for their master! The goal is nothing less than total destruction of the human race. The enemy will not be satisfied with simple enslavement. It must be a total mockery of all creation! The 2nd video is the future of mankind according to their plan.

    Do not talk about radiation with doctors. Just demand a blood test. If you complain from something else, they will do it, and the number of red and white blood cells will give you the information you need.

    • pure water,
      if white is up there is a problem ?

      • Wreedles Wreedles

        Radiation causes cell counts to drop.

            The Japanese doctors are paid by the government which manipulates how they reimburse hospitals. The bad economy has hampered the quality of care long before the Great Eastern Earthquake. Doctors obey orders… The nail that sticks out gets hammered.

            • jec jec

              And look at all the socialized medicine being pushed on to citizens. That way, doctors HAVE to say what the government tells them! Right now, with the minimal exposures my family has had, and the major issues seen in almost all our children (the ones living) its "see no evil..hear no evil". In several days, will have yet one more surgery due to autoimmune disease issues..its ongoing still after over 20 years post exposure.

              • What-About-The-Kids

                Jec, I wish you all the best in your surgery. You are a fighter, and will do well, I can tell. 🙂 Wishing you a speedy recovery!

  • WindorSolarPlease

    People there have had it rough losing their homes, now their health, and lives. My heart does go out to them. No one should have ever experienced this.
    Unfortunately, this will effect many more people in other Country's.

    When you play with dangerous things like Nuclear Power, there are consequences.

    I should point out, that blood tests don't show anything till you are at least over 100-150mSv exposure – and then sometimes not.
    It is highly variable.
    To ascertain exposure you need to extract the white cell fraction, and culture them (BSA and Eagle media) and look for key dislocations and chromosomal aberrations with DNA antimers or monoclonal antibodies. This is what was presented to the British government for RNZN service personnel at the Xmas Islands tests. This was of course covered up, but by and by, a living survivor today only has twice the number of aberrations as the average member of the public – for the given time.
    There is evidence that the body ejects damaged cells through a number of mechanisms, but the inherited cells are most vulnerable to exposure. Mammals carry their organs on the outside, and they are most susceptible to gamma and beta radiation.
    Of course, the British government threw the case out, even though it was clear that they had suffered and died from their exposures.
    Do not exceed 20mSv dose for a member of the public for one lifetime EVER. This limit is possibly being revised down to 5 mSv. Which is 3-4 lumbar x rays. There are the standards which your governments use, and then there are the standards which most researchers use. The two are NOT compatible.

    There is a saying, if we want to die well we need to live well. The warriors here are truly living well.

    I have no idea of God's Plan. I do believe there will have to be a cleansing of some sort, a chance for humanity to choose between good and evil, an "end times" to put it scripturally. I don't know if we are there / if this is it. In 2011 a huge wildfire came within 50 feet of the nukes at Los Alamos: within FIFTY FEET of massive disaster. Then the wind direction changed and the fire stopped approaching the nukes. This could well have been divine intervention. If so, it could happen at Fuku as well: in that case there would now be a more highly publicized opportunity for people to choose between good and evil. It was all spelled out so well in that Alternet article yesterday; also at

    How I cherish this site and all of you who are showing humanity at its best,

      God? God?
      You are putting your faith in a non existent entity?
      Well done you!
      That is exactly what is wrong with this crisis. The Americans are top heavy with Fundamentalists whom are not using their brains and letting 'God sort it out'.
      Just watch out that when SFP4 goes up – that God doesn't Smite North America!

      Openeye,…you are correct. Never doubt that!

  • Dog

    I'll put another case of a woman in Koriyama here. Quite many people, including children, are still left in dangerous areas and they cannot take blood/echo test.

    This is not the first time for Japanese government downplayed the effects of low dose radiation. Along USA, they did the same to some of Hiroshima and Nagasaki victims although they couldn't ignore direct victims of the bombs.

    I feel really bad for the Japanese people BUT!!!!! They are not doing a dam thing to stop the radiation from spewing all over this world and killing "ALL OF US" slowly! NOTHING, Zip, nada, zingo not a F'ing thing!!! Here in the Western United States our milk is radioactive as is our fresh fruits and vegetables. I am now moving to south America to get away from the radiation that envelops the Northern hemisphere. 199 more days before I can move and that's not soon enough!

    • BreadAndButter BreadAndButter

      The Japanese people stopped 54 nuke plants in one year. For you that might mean "no damn thing", I find it quite remarkable!!
      Sorry you'll have to wait before you can move. Millions of others never will have that possibility.

    • bleep_hits_blades

      Tacoma, where in South America are you moving to? Do you have any data that you are using to guide you in your decision? (I've been considering it, if my health improves enough to make that possible.)

      Can't blame the people of Japan too much – they are victims, just like the rest of us. And it's deep in in their cultural values to be totally submissive to authority. It's kind of 'sick' – but unfortunately, our human society all over the world is really all messed up – obviously, or we could not be on the brink of self-extinction.

    Do you guys think that Belize is far enough South?
    I guess all I 'think I know',…is this,…just a guess. For those of us in the 5 western states, regions-I include Canada and Mexico,…moving to the furthest eastern parts of the Us,…will only be 'buying about 16 months,….South America,….4-5 years TOPS,…probably less, like 3 years. (This could be wrong, of course,…just what I've gleaned,…but no one REALLY knows!)

    This gives time for technology to catch up,…maybe.

    I found out yesterday that I do not know how to 'stand still and die'. The reasons for staying don't matter now. I found this encouraging,….maybe I (we) are as smart as a dumb rat. After all, a rat will try to climb out of a 5 gallon bucket if you fill it with water. Fear,…the 'fight or flight' instincts WILL kick in. 🙂
