Ecology and Evolution (Journal), Morphological abnormalities in gall-forming aphids in a radiation-contaminated area near Fukushima Daiichi: selective impact of fallout?, Shin-ichi Akimoto, Graduate School of Agriculture at Hokkaido University, 2014:

Excerpts from Abstract: “This study compared the morphology and viability of gall-forming aphids between the Fukushima population and control populations [...] proportions of abnormalities and mortality were significantly higher in Fukushima [and] suggests that radioactive contamination had deleterious effects”

Excerpts on Morphological Abnormalities: “genetic investigations in the Fukushima area are an urgent issue. [...] Aphids are tiny, soft-bodied insects [284 were collected] from the Fukushima area [32 km from Daiichi in June 2012 and] compared with 1559 T. sorini first instars from seven control areas and 1677 T. nigriabdominalis first instars from six control areas [...] abnormalities were classified into three categories [...] Of the 167 T. sorini first instars collected in Fukushima, 13.2% exhibited [abnormalities -- Fukuoka samples] exhibited no abnormalities. [...] The incidence of morphological abnormalities in Fukushima was significantly higher than [...] on average, 3.8% for other areas. The Fukushima samples were peculiar because they contained four level-3 malformed individuals. One of the individuals had a bifurcated abdomen with 2 caudae [an] intense malformation [...] The second [...] had an empty, distended abdomen and a projection on the joint of the mid-femur and tibia; [possibly] a homologous leg structure. The third [...] bore a large protuberance on the abdomen [and a] solid protuberance at the base of the mid-femur. [The fourth] had 1 hind leg with apical segments missing due to necrosis and another hind leg that was atrophied [...] except for Fukushima, a level-3 malformation was found only once in 1559 individuals (0.064%). [...] In T. radicicola, for which only three galls were collected [...] abnormalities in all of the galls [were found.] one exhibited necrosis in three legs [...] and one lost a mid-tibia [...] Fukushima samples notably contained not only many aberrant first instars but also five highly deformed first instars [(1.76%, over 27 times rate seen elsewhere)]  To my knowledge, such deformations have not previously been reported in aphids. [...] The proportion of abnormalities detected in Fukushima was probably underestimated [...] this study suggests that of several potential factors, radioactive fallout from Fukushima [...] is most likely to have had the strongest effect”

Excerpts on Mortality: “Fukushima was 14.4%, which was significantly higher than the mortality in Iwamizawa (1.9%–3.2%) [...] larval mortality of T. nigriabdominalis [in] Fukushima population (16.9%) was significantly higher than that in the Sapporo population (1.3%) [...] Comparison with a Hokkaido population suggests that [those] in Fukushima more often fail to develop [...] Such high mortality during development”

      Dr. Goodheart, I read the story about that particular horse breeder months ago on a main stream "liberal" site. They completely removed any reference to the FATE of the horses and foals. Instead the site's writer wrote a "heartwarming" story about how the breeder and his daughter continued to take care of the horses. The trolls that showed up were saying see… all is well in Japan, no radiation problems. I had to post about what really happened, while the trolls were responding by saying they must have died from neglect or something.

      This is all disheartening, the disinformation that we are bombarded with.

      Someone can research this and it might turn out to be grizzly, but I'm unclear that children badly deformed at birth in that culture get to LIVE. The Japanese seem to excel in shunning and/or X-ing out those who do not conform.

      I had read (unfortunately source not in my brain right now) that when that happens in Japan, they just tell the mother that the child was still-born but do not allow her to see the child. And then God only knows what they write up as the statistic. It would also be interesting (though likely depressing) to get an accurate view of what women are doing about abortion if they clearly see a deformed fetus on a sonogram.

      Just because no one is talking about it doesn't mean it's not happening. The Japanese are notoriously secretive and a place like Fukushima Medical University is under strict fascist control apparently.

      There was reported, however, a waiting list of over a year to correct poly-dactyl — children born with six fingers instead of five. A deformity that could be lived with, then surgically corrected. But why would anyone think that that was the ONLY deformity to show up?

      Deformities apparently show up faster in insects than in humans because of the much shorter life cycle and the quicker turn-over. But there is NO reason to think that similar will not be humans' fate over there. I'd be terrified to bring a child into life in Japan.

      You won't see human deformations in Japan. The standard rule in Japanese hospitals is that any child born with a visually noticeable physical deformity is not brought to life. It is kept from breathing and reported as a stillbirth. And the stillbirth rate in Japan has not been reported for the last three years.

          No One's Perfect

          Hirotada Ototake

          Kodansha International, Oct 1, 2003 – Biography & Autobiography – 226 pages

          A boy born without arms or legs tells his own amazing story!

          Oto came home from school one day and told his parents he had signed up to play basketball. Most parents would be delighted; his were shocked. After all, Oto was born with no arms and no legs. But as this extraordinary young man has proven again and again, hard work, humor, versatility, and an upbeat approach to life are as valuable as limbs. No One's Perfect is his true account of how he slam-dunked one challenge after another, including basketball.

          In a style purposefully meant to reach all ages, Oto writes about his unique childhood in Japan, a country that traditionally has shielded the disabled from the public eye. But hide Oto? Try hiding the sun! From his earliest days, he brought such a winning optimism into the crowds around him-curious kindergartners, skeptical members of the public school board, gaping passersby-that it was hard to resist him.

          Now, as a young adult, Oto has taken on the work of establishing a "barrier-free" environment for others, in the government, in the media, in the eyes of all he meets. His book has sold over four millio

        The statement that persons with disabilities are killed at birth is an appalling slander on Japanese people, and is easily disproved. A Japanese man born without arms or legs is quite famous in Japan for his cheerful disposition and overwhelmingly optimistic attitude. He wrote a famous book (Go Tai Manzoku in Japanese), and recently had a semi-fictional documentary about his stint as a classroom teacher.

          You can do the math. How many were aborted just in the US with/because of Down Syndrome?

          I am not sure if any of us have a real clue, just what is being aborted, and why, since all medical is confidential and that is very convenient way for hiding such horrific statistics. :(

            I cannot answer the question about elective abortion — it is complex, and the statistics may be difficult to find. I can say that there are children with Down's syndrome in Japan, and many clearly and loved and well cared for. There are schools and work institutions for physically and mentally handicapped as well. My point is simple: the blanket assertions about 'the Japanese people' are rubbish, and I do wish they'd stop appearing.

  • What eats aphids?

    Natural enemies include predatory ladybirds, hoverfly larvae, parasitic wasps, aphid midge larvae, crab spiders, lacewings and entomopathogenic fungi. Ladybug beetles too.

    Ants enjoy a symbiotic relationship with aphids where they eat their excretions in turn for protecting them from predators.

    Some bees in coniferous forests also collect aphid honeydew to make "forest honey"

    IMO – It's all connected and a chain reaction is inevitable. Nuclear proponents may someday say "it's regrettable", if they say anything at all. ;)

      These insect, bird, sea and land creature mutations research are just another diversion, from what can be expected in the human population. This type research at this time is a form of propaganda, in that it distracts from the real question, "What will the effects be on humans." Well, the research is in on that. DNA and gene corruption are the consequences of being irradiated; and, generational mutations are what comes next.

      The road map of what will happen to us is clearly put forth in:

    How Do They Handle The Radiation?
    We don’t really know what gives insects so much better radiation resistance than us. Radiation penetrates their cells as well as it does ours. Scientists suspect that one reason could be that insect cells usually contain fewer chromosomes [...]

    Since radiation poisoning is the result of destruction or mutation of DNA, having relatively less DNA in your cells may make it easier for those cells to survive radiation exposure.

    http://mutage.oxfordjournals.org/content/24/3/259.full

    Introduction
    Individual mammals exposed to high doses of ionizing radiation are known to be at risk of developing cancer. According to recent reviews, ionizing radiation at low doses can also cause cancer due to its late effect. Exposure to ionizing radiation has been demonstrated to result in a self-sustaining and long-lasting process of clastogenesis in the human body, which may exceed the ability of the DNA repair system to deal with it, eventually leading to cancer (5,6)[..] Compared to humans, insects are generally known to be more resistant to ionizing radiation

    These are visible bugs. Think about the microbes, the yeasts, the fungi.

    I have wondered recently about the Japanese predilection for burning. Is it possible that after the WWII bombs were dropped that there was a reduction in the decay chain for plant material (think Chernobyls undecayed forest litter).

    With Fukushima's Fallout it is quite conceivable that vast areas of Japan will also see a buildup in forest litter.

    Then there are the bone marrow and intestinal cells in humans, you know the ones most prone to the effects of ionizing radiation.

    Methinks these aphids are just the teeny tiny tip of a VERY big ecological iceberg.

        That and worse. Less breathable air. Less oxygen with the rotting plankton. Has been the biggest absorber of carbon dioxide and the biggest producer of oxygen.

    Yes, but WIPP’s contamination is trivial, yes, trivial. Fukushima is serious. But the warped market forces that makes Kewaunee not profitable is totally arbitrary and has nothing to do with production. Vogtle will not top #20 billion and the market in that region is reasonable. If Kewaunee or VY were in Georgia or SC, they would not have closed.
    ——————————-

    Well I wouldn't call a 14 cents a kWH a warped force force, just the level of competition that was needed to sell nuclear power. The biggest kicker was Madison who decided to buy from nat gas and solar. Yes, nuclear can't even compete with solar in the north lattitudes.

    In my example the cost of Kewaunee plant/revenue compared to Vogtle plant cost to revenue was about 100 to 1. Vogtle will be roughly 100 time more expensive to operate. OK lets be fair, and say Vogtle comes in at $17B where they are headed today (typical nuke overrun on budget is 200%), and lets say they have some economies of scale and efficiency due to being new……so what if the cost to run Vogtle was only 25 times higher than the Keawaunee that couldn't compete.

    the economics are so absurd, it doesn't even deserve further calculation to show that (as GE top management has declared and others) that nuclear makes no sense economicially)

    “To my knowledge, such deformations haven’t been reported” in species before

    Actually there was a previous study showing nearly 40% of insects near Fukushima were deformed, posted here on ENEnews. Meanwhile the "Big Think" (online mini essays) recently had a piece saying Fukushima was all fear, no damage.

    It all comes back to the people; leaders are corrupt, scientists, news and public are enablers/ deniers or simply not savvy.

    The truth and the extent of the fascist/cabal ruled world is too shocking for the public to accept as possibly true.

    Its interesting that we think of East Germany (as an example of undesirable power structure) as being tightly repressed by the stassi and politics, spying etc. But in the wikipedia article there is this; "The official line (of E German thought) followed Lenin's theory of imperialism as the highest and last stage of capitalism, and in Dimitrov's theory of fascism as the dictatorship of the most reactionary elements of financial capitalism." and we can see that the root of the human problem is not in ideology, but a more fundamental psychology of our species. In the end, all lines of civilization become corrupted and destructive, and we have the amazing opportunity to witness the destruction of entire ecosystems now. The midas touch…the nukers touch…

            Here..I don't agree..poorly placed anger .. resentment,etc ..is draining.
            But properly placed anger ..appropriate indignation,etc.
            ..this is the stuff of clarity and drive.

              Most love based irreligious institutions base their love on murdering and excluding innocent people so they can worship in pride and evil.

              These people claim divinity as judges of others. They say "we love" but really their murderers drinking from the cup of the wrath of God, vampires eating human flesh and drinking the blood of the Saints and Prophets they murdered. Then they make stained glass windows to honour their treachery.

              Did you know it was common in the days of Moses for so called holy men to sleep with male children to extract their life force from them? Today this is called paedophilia. In truth that is how the TRAITORS murdered Christ, set him up, had a naked young boy run from the tent, accused him of pedophilia and murdered him. I guess what goes around comes around. Shouldn't have changed his name to the son of the Greek either. That really upsets YAHUAH.

              Imposters in these days live an easy slthothsom life feeding off the poor and those whom live by faith. Wearing them out for their imposter Christ Jesus the son of perdition.

              This world is crap and full of devils, the kingdom of heaven is upon us. Asta la vista NWO.

                must use caution, atomicistheword, in your presentation. While I'm no longer a Christian, I believe utmost respect must be shown to them, as well as others. You're on the cutting-edge of free thinking, but referring to their prophet as an "imposter" is offensive. Hopefully I'm misinterpreting your words. Just the same, please use restraint and respect the sensibilities of others. We still have miles to go and need the support of each other, if we're to successfully emerge from the darkness…

                  They are the words through Daniel the prophet, the tortured captive Paul, and John the divine. The testimony of Adam and the holy spirit of YAHUAH king of the universe; through his people the Prophets and Saints.

                  Woe to them that bring on the day of the Lord for it is not a joyous day for LIARS and murderers.

                  Yahuahshua is the name of the Son of YAHUAH. Not earth pig, which is the Latin old Greek and English for Jesus. We all know what happened to the evil spirits that went into the pig and the sea. We also know the parable of the good Samaritan that did the works the frauds wouldn't. There are many good Samaritans in Fukushima and on this site.

                  A lie is a lie and truth is truth. Knowing truth sets you free.

                  Jesus is the son of perdition, mask removed.

                  Save one save the world. Much better than stones crying from the heaven.

                  Jesus as in the scriptures will not go above the stars. Any living or lived human entity that genuinely walked and talked and existed in life form has no fear.

                  The liars say they are saved by Grace alone, all are saved this is the good news, but what they proudfully refused to teach is the reward for your actions (good works) while in human form. Even heaven has a hierarchy. There is no hell, that is a lie to control masses. Ask your teachers for hire that collect a bribe once a week? Sinning and murdering the rest, selling GOD'S word for a profit, in breach of his commons licence.

    "Fukushima nuclear plant released tiny amount of plutonium, but hot particles raise concerns"
    http://www.straight.com/news/621051/fukushima-nuclear-plant-released-tiny-amount-plutonium-hot-particles-raise-concerns
    "In a blog post on Daily Kos, Jay T. Cullen wrote that the amount of plutonium from Fukushima was 100,000 times lower than the release from the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear accident in Ukraine, and five million times lower than what resulted from atmospheric weapons tests in the last century."

    Guess these aphids didn't get to peer review Cullen's article.

      Don't trust Cullen's stats, of course. But did anyone even tell him that just the teeniest tiniest itsy-weeniest particle of plutonium could KILL him?

      And of course, there was no MOX fuel (= uranium-plutonium mix) at Chernobyl, unlike Fukushima.

      How many more reason why his analysis sounds so crocked? Well, probably lots!

      Nick:
      Here is the real problem with Cullen's story.

      The release amounts for Chernobyl are ALL estimates.
      So he could cherry pick the low numbers from other "studies".
      Or naively use cherry picked published data.

      Also, he has no possible way to know how much Pu was released at Fuku either, since no one knows what is actually still inside the buildings vs what got vaporized out (zirc fires) or blown out in the explosions vs coriums on the move.
      Never mind the aquifer flow problem.

      A story like Cullen's reeks (to me) of some one in desperate denial about the severity of what happened and is still on going.

      A small percentage of the population has a Plan A for dealing with EQ, flood, hurricane, tornado, fire.
      A much smaller percentage have a Plan B (actually bugging out)

      One can have a marginal Plan A for a nuclear accident, i.e. evacuate quickly and in the right direction.

      There is no Plan B for nuclear fallout since there is no where to go to truly get away from it (in the long haul).

      My guess is that Cullen is not at all mentally prepared to deal with the reality of what Fuku really is as it pertains to his life goals and dreams.

Even though Japan is 5000 miles across the Pacific Ocean, the study found that elevated airborne beta levels on the West Coast are directly correlated with this common trend among newborn babies after the Fukushima nuclear meltdown.’
    “And now, ‘A rare birth defect is on the rise in Washington State, and the bizarre trend has health officials stumped, Fox News reported.
    “’The odd development was brought to light in 2012 by Sara Barron, who was working a nurse at Prosser Medical Hospital in rural Washington at the time.
    “’That year, Barron encountered two cases of babies born with anencephaly – a neural tube birth defect that causes infants to be born without certain areas of the brain and skull. A devastating condition that affects only one or two babies out of every 10,000 pregnancies, anencephaly occurs when the upper part of the neural tube doesn’t close all the way during the first month of pregnancy. Almost all babies born with this condition die shortly after pregnancy.’

    Apparently you don't really know what's happened, do you? It takes a little while to study about it because of the "cover-up," but when you realize that thousands and thousands and thousands of gallons of highly radioactive c r a p has been pouring into the Pacific since after 2011 daily, then you'll understand. On top of that, 3 or more missing coriums, which can't be found. It seems to be a meltdown in a huge way. Now they have a highly radioactive aquifer going on under the place. It's a huge mess. It's such a large mess that TEPCO doesn't know what to do about it and needs help from other countries, but it's said that the mess is so huge, that other countries don't know what to do as well.

    So please don't call those people idiots for searching for dangerous radioactive wastes which are already poisoning fish and people in Japan. Didn't you hear about the fish that was found in a grocery store in Canada by a school person doing research? It was huge in the radiation, way above any healthy standard.

    The study linked above by Enenews matches what Dr. Timothy Mousseau found in Chernobyl.

    "Mousseau found – in studies of plants, insects and mammals – that:

    ◾Most organisms studied show significantly increased rates of genetic damage in direct proportion to the level of exposure to radioactive contaminants

    ◾Many organisms show increased rates of deformities and developmental abnormalities in direct proportion to contamination levels"

      Get a copy (no paper trail on purchase!) of
      Confessions Of An Eco Warrior by Dave Foreman

      Foreman's ethical problems aside, it is not really about any "confessions", but is a great read in terms of how the incestuous relationship (fascist) between the US government and industry works against any and all resistance to their profit driven behaviors, especially with regard to resource extraction and energy.

      It is also a great read for how not to get caught if one decides to take direct action to stop something.

      A perfect companion text is
      In The Absence Of The Sacred by Jerry Mander (yes, his real name)

      Mander holds no punches in leaving the reader with an intense "Santa Claus Moment" with respect to what TV and MSM are all about, with an emphasis on their influence (really bad) on Native cultures in North America during the latter half of the 20th century.

      WE can stop the progress of the nuclear industry.
      WE can shut nuclear down.
      Likely, the latter will mean that some will die trying.

      The past/present/future exposure to fallout and leaks from Fuku are inevitable.

      Fukushima is a really intense topic and people deal with it in different ways and go through different stages each at a different pace.

      Some people have started the journey long ago, like having been exposed in the womb at Bikini or having survived TMI and childhood cancer, others are at this moment dealing with suddenly becoming a nuclear refugee and on the run ( although on some level we all are ) or posting as they walk into surgery for cancer. Saying 'I'm tired of all the doom' is a bit of a sweeping statement to this outstanding and unique list of people – many with so much experience and most of them with seemingly limitless patience and generosity.

      If you read closely, there are many who are sharing good practical information on health ( look into 'combating radiation' forum, too ) or educating us in becoming more aware of media/government deception to protect us from being mislead in the future, and some that share humor to lighten things up.
