Title: Report on the “Learn from Chernobyl” tour in Japan

Date: Nov 25, 2012

Ms. Kazuko Kawai, Founder of Voices for Lively Spring: A group of Japanese advocacy groups sent a mission to Geneva, including Mayor [Katsutaka] Idogawa of Futaba Township.

He was able to state that he had cyst in the thyroid only overseas. He couldn’t mention anything like that in Japan.

So this is the reality. Even adults — Mr. Idogawa is not a young fellow, but he has cysts already in the thyroid. And now the Prefecture government is testing children, but they are not testing any adults yet.

So what’s going to happen next year or the year after? I’m very scared.

    Older patients (over 45) are at greater risk of death from thyroid cancer.

    In civilized countries not run by Diet/Tepco murderers, there is a standard procedure for lumps larger than 1 mm:

    "If the ultrasound shows that the lump is bigger than 1.0 centimeter, a special procedure called a fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) will be performed. This test helps determine if the lump is cancerous."

    SP: The contaminated Japanese people deprived of proper treatment will experience a much higher death rate from this industrial-derived disease. Genocide does become a proper description for the actions of the leaders in charge in Japan.

      Dear Sickputer,
      'Genocide does become a proper description for the actions of the leaders in charge in Japan.' Powerful post!
      …and still no EKG's for children…
      'We have recently heard that children in the Fukushima contamination area have been suffering heart attacks. This is therefore a predictable development and is a consequence
      of internal contamination of heart muscle with Caesium-137 and other radionuclides. In view of the seriousness of this development the ECRR committee has decided to release
      the Bandashevsky presentation at its 2009 Lesvos conference [www.euradcom.org].' -Dr. Chris Busby

    I fear the Japanese society risks imploding itself. Collective denial is collectively unhealthy, especially at this extreme.

    "TOKYO (Reuters) – Japanese voters look likely to hand victory to a party that favors nuclear power in the first election since the March 2011 Fukushima radiation disaster – a result a baffled Greenpeace activist likens to one of the "wonders of the world".

    But even if the main opposition Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) wins the December 16 election, it will not reflect any groundswell of popular support for nuclear power.

    Instead, it would underline a lack of credible anti-nuclear political standard bearers in Japan and the ability of the LDP to focus the debate on security matters and the stalled economy."

    Japan's multiple crimes of stupidity, lust for power, intransigent institutionalized hierarchy and greed against its own peoples, is so sad to follow on here…

    What is even more sad, is the same things are being applied on global scale everywhere… With aging beyond dangerous nukes still in operation everywhere; toxic pollution broadcast everywhere; war for profit everywhere, deforestation everywhere, the unsustainable mining of groundwater everywhere, ignoring anthropological climate change everywhere and on and on..

    We are a virus… We and/or our children are doomed to something so horrible… I doubt, You or I can even conjure it…

    …"He couldn't mention anything like that in Japan". I'm sorry, but when I read this, all I can think is that Mayor Idogawa is a coward or a lemming. I'm sorry for his deteriorating health, and I understand the intense cultural peer pressure of Japan to "go along" or risk ostracism and isolation. But this man, as a mayor, has a higher moral responsibility to speak out, warn others about the radiation danger.

    Japan is dying. The children of Japan are dying. The nuclear industry and government have done an outstanding job of coverup and keeping many people ignorant of what's happening. But not everyone. There are enough informed citizens that do know what's at stake and what is happening. They need to be shouting from the rooftops, make lots of noise, civil disobedience. To borrow from the AIDS crisis, silence=death.
