June 7, 2012 report by Mitsuyuki Ota of the Great East Japan Earthquake Relief Network in West-Chiba translated by Dissensus Japan:

East Japan: adult and child morbidity and mortality on a rise in the contaminated regions

According to a report, the number of cases of disease and death of children from 1 to 19-year-old increased in prefecture Fukushima in 2011 (March-November) compared to the previous year. Likewise, in prefecture Chiba, increase was reported in the case of young people from 4 to 29-year-old, while decrease was seen in the case of children under 4-year-old.

[…]

It’s evident that the prefectures that have at least 1.5 times bigger number of cases of disease and death of any one of 3 groups of children than the previous year are Iwate, Yamagata, Fukushima, Tochigi, Chiba and Nagano. Those are the prefectures that are radiation-contaminated.
Then, Shizuoka (group of 1-4-year old 1.41 times more) and Saitama (group of 5-19-year old 1.36 times more) follow.

As for adult, the prefectures that have at least 1.2 times bigger number of cases of disease and death of any one of brackets compared to the previous year are Miyagi, Akita, Yamagata, Fukushima, Tochigi, Gunma, Chiba, Toyama. The result of Iwate (group of 20-29-year old, 0.56 times more) is especially remarkable. The number of cases of disease and death of some age brackets in these prefectures declined over the previous year. However, the year-on-year increases were marked in these 6 prefectures, as well as Akita and Toyama (Some areas of Toyama are also contaminated).

It is very likely the number of cases of disease and death increased associated with radiation.

    Reports like this one may be able to de-seat Dr. Yamashita, who singlehanded helped repress testing and reporting and treating of victims of Fukushima radiation on the notion that the truth would create wide spread panic. He is paternalistic, dangerous and needs to go. With his leadership gone, medical doctors who want to treat patients rather than calm already calm societies can step forward. Maybe there will still be time for many of these people, especially the children with adequate treatment and support. We are indebted to you Mitsuyuki Ota for this report.

        i read that older people who may have had TB in the past (pre mid fifties) could be likely to get it again.. there has been some outbreaks in recent years but TB is one of the first diseases to make itself known in contaminated areas like Gomel, semipalantisk etc..

    Hello all informed folks………you are awesome…………….anyhooo…….i would like to know ……………..what are my chances of getting sick from this ……really. We all need to ponder that. Black white rich or poor………….were all in it now.

    • arclight arclight

      where are you from?

    • Time Is Short Time Is Short

      All our chances of getting sick from this are very, very high. Depending on where you live, it's only the timeline that makes much difference.

      Chart your location on the jetstream maps, and plan accordingly.

      May we all rest in peace.

    HEEEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!! MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!! tell me how you really feel………… HOW MANY YEARS .on average u think we have…….shocking stuff Time Is Short.

      No one can tell you because no one knows. You may be radiation free while the person next to you was the one who inhaled a particle of strontium 90 and 20 to 30 years later begins a battle against cancer, or a number of other diseases. It all depends on where it lands, whether it is beta, gamma, or alpha, penetrates the skin or is eaten or breathed in, whether you are young or old, female or male, already ill or under great stress. Many variables. Many people manage to fight off radiation illnesses and many do not. There are supplements to take to try and strip out the particles from the body, etc. Look in the health forum here for suggestions and amounts. Many plants and animals experience the same. Some faster than humans given their metabolisms and how they age, etc. For many, victims will be without any obvious radiation induced illness of any kind, but a gene within them may become mutated and be passed along to their children who will pass it along to their children and it is these children who will suffer. The pain and suffering of low dose radiation exposure can be deferred down the road for many years and decades, which makes it all that much easier to fool people into believing that it is safe. The third leading cause of death for women around the world is domestic violence. Will radiation poisoning surpass this? We don't know. But, as a woman, i should be cautious of both – choose kind people and take supplements that support my body to cope with radiation.

    No more walks in the rain or playing in snow,
    stay out of the dust when the winds blow,
    no stroll in the forest. Stay off the ball field!
    No kids jumping in leaves or eating safe meals.
    Prepare for a new life, mostly indoors,
    forget vacations by the seashore.
    Teach your children Detox, The Way of Chelation,
    do your best to protect them from radiation.
    Clothes off outside. No outdoor pets.
    No dust-stirring vacuum but air-filtration get.
    Don't handwash your car or clean your own eaves.
    Try not to panic if you get the heaves.
    There's protocols many for a world gone off kilter,
    such as safely handling your indoor air filter.
    What bio-accumulates most and what least?
    Fish, meat and dairy have all left the feast,
    fruit, veggies and grains can't be considered treats.
    It's all lesser evils and trying to live
    as best as you can before something else gives.
    If that's acceptable – just carry on,
    accept that your leaders treat you as pawns,
    cattle expendable, left helpless to fend
    off deliberate or not what could be the end
    of all Life that we've got.

    BULLSH#T:
    If you believe the numbers of disease are 1.2 and 1.5 times greater than before, you are idiot. This is all subterfuge, a ruse to placate the uninformed. Disease there is horrendous just as it was, and continues to be in Belarus. But, if you believe these erroneous numbers, get in touch with me. I have some bridges to sell you.

    Yes, this Professor Yamashita is definitely too biased and should go. Here is a quote from a September 2011 report on Fukushima Update entitled: International Expert Symposium Ignores Fukushima Residents: Citizens Group by Seiichi Nakate is Executive Director of Fukushima Network for Saving Children from Radiation "Fukushima Prefecture is now initiating a Fukushima “Prefectural People’s Health Management Survey,” with the expert Professor Shunichi Yamashita, who has underestimated the health risk from low-dose radiation, as leader. Professor Yamashita is an extremely dangerous academic who has said that “an exposure of 100 millisieverts is no problem.”

    This survey is being carried out under the premise of Professor Yamashita’s assertions that “there were no health effects due to Chernobyl besides cancer of the thyroid” and that “there will be almost no health effects from radiation in Fukushima.”

    • ML

      Seiichi Nakata ends with the article referenced above with this warning: "The Symposium must not be allowed to provide a justification for the Japanese Government’s exposure policy and confer international authority on the “Prefectural People’s Health Management Survey.” This is a threat against not only the people of Fukushima Prefecture but the whole of humankind.

      We have submitted an open letter to the Symposium and will also oppose the Symposium with a protest demonstration. Please communicate the injustice of this Symposium to the whole world.

      What we, the residents of Fukushima, need most of all is to evacuate to safe areas. The evacuation of children should be carried out with the utmost urgency. The tragedy of Chernobyl must not be repeated in Fukushima."

    DR Yamashitzo’s group was re-named in 2005. Here’s the beginning of the Wiki article, which indicates it is a govt/private research institute that’s also involved in promoting nuclear power, and also has connections to Western megacorporations:

    “The Japan Atomic Energy Agency (日本原子力研究開発機構 Nihon genshiryoku kenkyū kaihatsu kikō?, JAEA) was formed October 1, 2005 by a merger of two previous semi-governmental organizations. While it inherited the activities of both PNC and JAERI, it also inherited the nickname of JAERI, “Genken” 原研, an abbreviated word for “nuclear research”.

    On April 10, 2007, JAEA officially joined the GNEP alliance.[1] The other members in the alliance are Areva, Washington Group International and BWX. It is expected that the experience gained from the Rokkasho centrifuge enrichment plant will be a key contribution from JAEA.”

      As a "Marine Brat" I am throughly disgusted with the US Military and the way it throws it's Veterans out like trash. Here's one of the comments from the above linked article…..

      Andy Redmond ( Morrisville, PA )
      My father, a navy veteran named Robert H. Redmond, claimed to have been present at Eniwetok. He passed away in 1966 from acute leukemia. I have his service records with the event missing. I have been researching for years and finding \dead ends\ in establishing his participation. Other than his anectdotal comments and my ownership of his \Joint Task Force Seven\ lighter, there remains a big hole in whether or not he was there. Can anyone help with information? Thank you.

    • The nuclear tests at Bikini, which affected the Marshall Islands, released 130 times as much iodine-131 as Chernobyl. The plumes contaminated Africa, where AIDS originated. This was really horrendous.
