Yahoo: Rumor spreading in Japan says leukemia up 7 times from last year — Champion wrestler who trained in Fukushima diagnosed with acute myelocytic leukemia

Published: December 1st, 2011 at 11:45 am ET


MHLW ignores the medical statistics of Fukushima and a part of Miyagi, Fukushima Diary by Mochizuki, December 1, 2011:

Since a few weeks ago, this “harmful rumor” has been spreading on the internet

  • Date: Nov. 21
  • Survey of medical association of each local government
  • April through October
  • Leukemia cases have increased 7 times since last year
  • Chairman of medical association said that the connection between unusual increase of leukemia and Fukushima is not clear
  • 60% of the total leukemia cases are acute leukemia (highest ratio since 1978, when they started taking this survey)
  • 80% of the patients are from Northern Japan and the Kanto area
  • Fukushima has highest rate, then Ibaraki, Tochigi, Tokyo

The Announcement

To clear up this “confusion”, a Japanese citizen asked Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare for the truth, to which they replied that they take all patients statistics but that this year they eliminated the data from Fukushima and a part of Miyagi from the whole statistics report.

They say it is to support the reconstruction of Fukushima and Miyagi, but we all know that in reality abandoning the survey only makes the situation worse.

On 3/11, earthquake and Tsunami hit Miyagi and Iwate for most of the part while Fukushima suffers from radiation mostly.

If they really wanted to try to “help reconstruction efforts” (sic), they should eliminate the data of those three prefectures, with Iwate and Miyagi given a higher priority.

The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare does not give any more specific reasons why.

Spread the net “proliferation of leukemia patients,” the Japan Medical Association is a “factual presentation”, ITmedia, Nov. 30, 2011:

    “Leukemia is up 600%, gee, what could the reason be?” Brilliant doctor there.

    Fukuville population decreasing is clear, reason for lying is clear, reason for dieing is clear. Reason to stay in Fukuville is not clear. Actually it’s a translation error or code the good doctor is saying nuclear just sounds like not clear. He couldn’t possibly be helping to kill off his countrymen.

  • Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML)

    Acute myelogenous leukemia is caused by damage to the DNA of developing cells in your bone marrow. When this happens, blood cell production goes awry. The bone marrow produces immature cells that develop into leukemic white blood cells called myeloblasts. These abnormal cells are unable to function properly, and they can build up and crowd out healthy cells.

    It’s not clear what causes the DNA mutations that lead to leukemia. Radiation, exposure to certain chemicals and some chemotherapy drugs may play a role. …

      Allelic Imbalances in Radiation—Associated Acute Myeloid Leukemia

      Genes 2011, 2, 384-393; doi:10.3390/genes2020384

      “Ionizing radiation is established as a cause of leukemia in humans. Epidemiological life-span studies on the Japanese A-bomb survivors revealed that leukemia, primarily acute myeloid leukemia (AML), exhibits the highest excess relative risk of all neoplasms [1]. Epidemiological studies also identified a significantly increased leukemia incidence in clean-up workers at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant [2,3]. The AML cases among Chernobyl clean-up workers and inhabitants of Ukrainian territories with high contamination from radioactive fallout were characterized by an unfavorable clinical course with resistance to conventional therapy. These patients had significantly shorter overall survival (OS), and lower complete remission rate as compared to sporadic cases [4]. The clinical observations suggest that the biology of the radiation-associated AML following the Chernobyl accident might be different from that of the spontaneous forms of AML. Cases of radio- and/or chemotherapy-related secondary AML are frequently found to carry chromosomal deletions at 5q and 7p/7q [5]. These recurrent alterations are related to complex karyotypic changes and bad prognosis. To understand the mechanisms of radiation leukemogenesis it would be important to determine if these 5q and 7p/7q deletions are only prevalent after high-dose radiotherapy, or if they also occur in AML associated with a preceding low-dose accidental or environmental radiation exposure….”

  • JMA Says They Didn’t Report Increase In Leukemia In Japan

    December 1st, 2011 | Add a Comment

    [Translate] The JMA released a statement trying to stop a rumor that they reported a recent increase in leukemia in Japan. The JMA says they did not produce a report on leukemia and recent statistics. They were not saying there isn’t one either. The JMA stated is it too early to tell with such data. Normal leukemia has a much longer latency and acute leukemia is rare or would require a significant radiation dose over a short period of time.

    I suppose all those deformed children in chernobyl and birth defects in iraq from DU are just a bad rumour too. Perhaps we should send media whores to educate them about smiling more to counter the effects of RADIATION.

    They say you can ignore hard truth, but it won’t ignore you.

      Here is a story about a man who was interviewed by American Reporters after the liberation of the Concentration Camps at the end of World War Two. They asked him how they could let their country go so far. He said:

      ” First they came for the Jews. I was not Jewish so I say nothing. Then they came for the rich. I was not rich so I say nothing. Then they came for me. And there was no one left to say anything anymore.”

    Let us pray.

    Yes pray for those in the near future who will go to the Dr and find out they too have some radiation poisoning related disease and the sudden reality hits them. No one will report it, and no one will care as the numbers increase. There will be no one to take the responsibility of killing all these innocent people, or giving the proper compensations. The sadness of realizing you are dying and there is nothing that can be done and bang again, no one cares will lead more to the suicide pact. Tragic is not a descriptive enough word to use here.

    Yes, pray for those who will suffer for truly, soon we will be praying for ourselves.
