Doctor Shuntaro Hida: Still now the nature of the radiation damage cannot be understood from a medical point of view, nor can it be treated.

At 4:15 in

Hida: Internal radiation exposure is indeed dangerous. Once you absorb even a low dose it will cause damage.

At 4:45 in

Hida: You should spend the rest of your lives working together to shut down nuclear plants and abolish nuclear weapons.

At 5:25 in

Hida: The government and other elites say that people don’t need to worry about internal exposure. But I’ve seen evidence to the contrary.

      It is Nagasaki this day. People lost their spirituality this day. And Fukushame perpetual resulted. Nations have not yet woken up from their slumber. See India and China going ahead with this deadened spirit of Nukes.

        You name hints you are Indian?
        May I call you Rama, for short?

        Yes, many Nations still live with true blinders on…

      hi max
      can you sense the slimy fingers of big PR. im a bit suspicious because even ogilvy and maher today has a similar story

      "HIROSHIMA —
      The scars that still mark Sunao Tsuboi’s face from the wartime bombing of Hiroshima are a grim reminder of the power of the atom as a wave of nuclear wariness sweeps post-Fukushima Japan.

      Around 140,000 people perished instantly in the searing heat or from radiation in the days and months after a U.S. plane unleashed the deadliest weapon ever used and ushered in the nuclear age.

      Nearly seven decades later, Tsuboi, one of a dwindling number of survivors of the first ever atomic attack, is raising his voice against nuclear power in a country still reeling from the tsunami-sparked catastrophe of March 2011.

      “In terms of being nuclear victims, we are the same,” Tsuboi, 87, said of those affected by the Fukushima crisis…"

      "..Scientists have warned it could be decades before it is safe for some people to return to their homes…" decades?? for the lawyers imo ..

      "..“The atomic bomb was dropped in war and no one helped us, while the Fukushima accident occurred in peace time and a lot of people offered help.”…" ask the people of fukushima about the "help" they recieved!

      "..Despite his own experience, Yonekura is resigned to the possibility that resource-poor Japan may not be able to abandon atomic power altogether.

      “Nuclear power may be a necessary evil,” he said…"

      cont..

    Dr. Shuntaro Hida's message and warnings should be seen by everyone in the world.

      Including the WHO. See how they turn round and contradict themselves at:
      http://www.who.int/bulletin/volumes/90/8/11-094474/en/index.html
      Look at the statements in this WHO article:
      "..the effects of prolonged exposure to low-level radiation on human health have not yet been determined.4" and further down there:
      "For elderly Japanese people reared in country villages, being torn from the land of their ancestors and moved to an unfamiliar environment can cause more stress and harm than direct exposure to radiation."
      Such is the obfuscation that WHO is spreading in the face of ECRR 2003/2010 findings and Recommendations of Health Effects of Ionising Radiation Exposure at Low Doses for Radiation Protection Purposes at:

  • markww markww

    AND NOW here is The Obama administration and who else but HILLARY CLINTON and Canada wanting to raise the radiation levels to hide and not show the truth. Saying high doses of radiation does not harm you the lies and cover ups and the NON action of the government and the people have to do radiation checks in America, shows you that the one world order starting to rise up

    • Time Is Short Time Is Short

      They'll keep raising acceptable radiation levels until there isn't anyone left to read them.

      The question is, what happens when everyone realizes this is an ELE, and the government is responsible for covering the whole thing up, until it was too late to do anything about it?

      Ask for forgiveness? I don't think so. Not when their babies and children are suffering from the rad sickness and dying by the hundreds of thousands.

      Hillary's betrayal to the mothers of this world will not go unnoticed.

    JETRO is desparate to sell radioactive peaches from Fukushima that doesn't sell in Japan to Thai buyers 🙁
    How would you know once it's been packaged as 'Product of Thailand'?
    http://radiation7.blog.fc2.com/blog-entry-255.html

    Also JETRO is holding a meeting in Octorber to promote Japanese Sake to overseas buyers 🙁

    Only buy Sake from Australia.

      Driscroll Strawberries that used to say grown in California on the package now say made in USA..

      • rambojim

        correction: now say grown in USA

        sorry…

        • Time Is Short Time Is Short

          Just trying to delay the inevitable.

          Soon the Dept. Of Agriculture will get permission to suspend all 'point of origin' regulations. Or at least permission to not enforce them. Just like every other government agency.

    • jec jec

      Product of Thailand. There is even a town named USA–so product made in USA is on the label! Just ask about infant formulas! Just ask the dog owners whose dogs were poisoned by contaminated dog food–banned for sale from an Asian country–the products were "repackaged" and "made in USA" or "Thailand". And where do you think all the contaminated rice is? Mixed into everyones Asian rice products..or cereals. FDA had better do it job..Hillary or no Hillary. I like the idea of Hillary "retirement"..along with other US government officials who are treating US citizens like "unwashed masses". Noone is a KING in USA, not the President or a Senator! We are all equal.

    I am surprised that almost half the people says in the vote that they'll continue to eat sushi :O It just shows the level of not understanding the implications.

    • rambojim

      they were so happy to get octopus again also. (government said it was safe to eat)

    • Time Is Short Time Is Short

      One way to look at it is, if one is dying anyway, why limit the things you enjoy?

      No reason to deny alcohol to a dying drunk, or a cigarette for someone in their last stages of lung cancer.

      It becomes a question of quality of life, versus an unknown limited quantity of life.

      This will be a personal choice we all have to make. All the food and water is contaminated now anyway, and the levels of contamination are only going to go higher, so who's to say?

      I will say that the very thought of eating seafood makes my stomach turn. I'm on the fence about cheese, but at what point would I give up chicken and turkey, or the occasional bowl of rice?

      My son has chosen 'death by sushi'. I won't join him, but there's nothing I can say.

      Our reality is really going to change dramatically over the next few years. For many of us here, it already has.

      Good luck to all of us. And my sincere prayers to those parents who have to make these decisions for their children.

    If low level radiation is not harmful why does the space station have a shielded area in case of solar flares,
    How many astronauts have died of cancer propably due to exposure to radiation while in space.

  • JustmeAlso

    It is all very normal (for nutcases) to speak in Orwellian terms to make the ''enemy'' suffer with the help of low radiation U238 which has a half life of 4.468 billion years..

  • chrisk9

    Anyone in a position of power or authority who says that internal radiation does not matter should be silenced and put in jail. As should anyone even minimalizing the danger. Lives will be saved by people being knowledgeable and careful about what they eat, how they live and what precautions they take. On the flip side people in power saying there are no dangers are killing people, maybe not today but in 20 or 30 years.

  • VyseLegendaire VyseLegendaire

    We need more than 1 95 year old man, tireless as he may be. It's almost like NHK is trying to diminish and sideline this issue by relegating it to 1 old crusader who is nearing his demise, so we can wax nostalgically at how important this issue WAS related to Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

    Where are the crusaders NOW for the ONGOING Fukushima crisis?

  • rambojim

    I would like to know why Doctor Hida waited over a year before he got around to releasing this information to his people and the world?

    Radiation poisoning is not something new. Most scientist know that radiation is most dangerous once it enters the body. Is Doctor Hida's conscious now bothering him?

  • rambojim

    Doctor Hida could have prevented a few thousand souls from receiving massive amounts of radiation had he opened his mouth 12 months ago.

    This is just my opinion folks…

    • rambojim

      I have been on this disaster since it started,and not once did I ever hear Doctor Hida's name come up until now..

      • GlowInTheDark GlowInTheDark

        There are many video of him but it has to be translated, doesn't it… Unless the video title is in English, it won't get picked up when you search for Radiation or Nuclear etc.

  • rambojim

    I'm talking about Fukushima GlowInTheDark. Not something Dr. Hida wrote 34 years ago.

  • rambojim

    I hope I didn't rile you up Glow. Cmon and post a smiley face for me so I know we're still friends…

  • "…after 60 years …what we should do is ASSUME FIRST that low dose radiation IS the cause of EVERYTHING."

    The 'evidence' is more than clear.
