Title: Japanese Magazine “Sensationalizes”: “Thyroid Cancer Suspected on Two Children Aged 4 and 7″
Source: EX-SKF
Date: Feb 23, 2012

“Serious abnormalities found in 11 evacuees from Fukushima Prefecture”

  • 7-year old girl had 8 millimeter nodule on her thyroid [Blood tests determined 'benign']
  • Her 2-year-old sister also had 2 millimeter nodule
  • Doctor who examined them said “I’ve never seen anything like this”
  • 2 children and 9 adults were tested in Sapporo, and thyroid cancer was suspected
  • Adult woman has been confirmed to have thyroid cancer
  • Japanese researchers [say] “it is impossible for children under the age of 6 to have nodules 5 millimeters or larger”
  • But the doctor who examined them in Sapporo, Hokkaido says, “Whatever they say, this is the result”
  • In the case of Chernobyl, it took 4 years till the cases of thyroid cancer started to appear. The doctor in Sapporo is shocked by the quick onset

Kouta Kinoshita’s blog translation and comments by EX-SKF

He and several others had known about it, and were trying to find a better way to disclose the information with the agreement of all the parties involved (parents, for one). He seems rather upset with the reporter. He also quotes an expert of the Chernobyl accident he consults with: “At this stage, you can’t tell whether it is a malignant tumor. I personally think the Bunshun article went overboard. What’s known now is that they have some tumor of unknown nature. The growth is rapid, and no doubt it is a health damage from radioactive materials. I think it can be categorized as damage caused by radiation, even if the growth is benign, because before March 11 [accident], such growth was impossible in children.”

    My theory is the extreme speed of the illness development progression is likely relative to the degree of contamination present. In other words, Japan is extremely contaminated. Perhaps other radiation illnesses will also be accelerated which will actually allow us to demonstrate the relationship of these occurrences to the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster where it is rightfully due. For me, this would be an important positive direction this could take.

        Good Morning B&B, hope you are well. I think you stated you lived in Hawaii. If not I hope you are well wherever you are.
        Something I'd like to say this morning is that I've been researching a little about Japan's history concerning Tsunamis. What I found is that they are good for a catastrophic type Tsunami on average of about every 65yrs. Some years they have had as many as 3 over a 100yr period then there are times when only one will occur over a 100yr period. Dating back to the earliest historical account which I think I read was in 550 something they have had a catastrophic Tsunami every century. Many of these Tsunamis killed tens of thousands of people at a time. Only a couple times there were either no deaths reported or very few.
        I just do not understand with knowledge of natural disaster like these occurring, in what would be in historical terms often, they would not have opted for a less risky alternative for energy needs. especially with what was know about nuclear power when they were put into operation.
        It places fault directly at feet those making these decisions on behalf of nation and their citizens.

          Then again this may have been the only cost affective energy solution at the time. I'd like to think they researched all other options before deciding on building 40+ nuclear reactors at the shoreline from the bodies of water which these tsunamis arose from.

          LaterLuke: good post, and on point. The problem with atomic power plants is not that they were badly designed, though they are flawed and frail. The problem lies within ourselves, the human builders, operators, and regulators. (And a negligent public which tolerated having these death machines built in the first place.) Utility owners will always try to preserve shareholder value, even if it means endangering public safety. (Building spent fuel pools above reactors, because it is cheaper, etc.) Regulators will always protect their utility clients. (Increasing the allowable radiation dose by a factor of 10, while assuring the poisoned public that it is safe to return to their homes in the evacuation zone). This is why this crazy situation developed as it did. Japan must begin to evacuate their homeland or else stay and perish. America must not allow the building of two new nuclear death machines to go forward in Georgia.

And as you have said, if it happens soon any nuke plant or waste pile that needs cooling will melt down in short order then the whole world will be experiencing the effects in the article.

      Hi goathead … glad to see you like Jimmi (I went to school with Noel Redding, so I have a bit of a connection, albeit tenuous, to the genius).

      Name-drop over, but I couldn't resist; nor to your idea that some future generation might have a "nursery song" – assuming that our species survives – about this latest plague emanating from Fukushima, but presaged by Chernobyl and hundreds of atomic bomb tests before that … and this is how a future rhyme might go:

      "Ring a ring of plutonium,
      Six reactors in a row.
      They all fell down
      And we did too."

      I haven't posted much since about May last year, because I realized that this is probably an "extinction event" and that nothing can be done about it.

      On the other hand, I could be wrong, so I have not tried to discourage those less pessimistic/fatalistic than I am; but I note that I have not affected anyone here I got acquainted with at the outset, e.g. Tacomagroove and others who know who they are, so I feel free to express my negative opinions, especially considering recent and upcoming nuclear wars.

      Make no mistake that the wars on Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya were not nuclear, because they were, even if 'only' because of "depleted uranium", which is highly toxic.

      The pending wars against Syria and Iran WILL be nuclear and might well involve atomic bombs, though Iran has none.

      So IF Washington, London, NATO, Tel Aviv and satraps like Qatar go ahead, then the accident at Fukushima will look like just a tea party for what comes to pass … which has been planned for at least two decades … Google PNAC.

      Some claim that Fukushima was an engineered event – like 911 certainly was – but I am careful about which "conspiracy theories" I buy into.

      Fukushima was an accident waiting to happen, as opposed to the planned demolition of the WTCs and current wars in the ME.

      Sorry folks, but your fate (and mine of course) is sealed by both accident and design, such as world banks betting both…

    I too agree Anthony & goathead. I had initially thought that using the Heritage seeds stored away by governments may help, but only for so long. At sometime somewhere you will be exposed.

    This link was in the comments on that article.

    http://www.hotthyroidology.com/editorial_158.html

    Summary and conclusion

    Today, 20 years after the Chernobyl accident, the large increase in thyroid cancer incidence among those exposed in childhood and adolescence continues. In contrast, no clearly demonstrated increase in the incidence of other cancers can be attributed to radiation exposure from the accident (28). Although radiation-induced thyroid cancer is a well-recognized medical phenomenon based on wide-ranged epidemiological studies, molecular signature(s) and other details of papillary thyroid cancer remain to be further clarified to pinpoint differential diagnostic criteria not only in childhood and adult thyroid cancers but also in radiation-induced and sporadic cancers (29). The latest study in Hiroshima and Nagasaki Atomic Bomb survivors in Japan has indicated that a biological effect from a single brief external exposure to ionizing radiation nearly 60 years in the past still occurs and can be detected (30).

    In childhood, once exposed even to low doses of ionizing radiation, either externally or internally, the cancer-prone cell damage within the thyroid gland can be preserved for a long time. Today, special attention should be paid to a high risk group of individuals who have been exposed to radioactive iodines just after the Chernobyl accident and who are now 20 to 30 year-old. Elucidation of the molecular mechanisms of radiation-induced thyroid cancer is expected to contribute to the disease prevention and treatment in the coming future.

      Would using the Heritage seeds help reduce children's exposure?

      I was thinking that maybe for soil you could dig deep enough, even with radiation still pouring out of the reactors that maybe it would be a bit less contaminated, grow foods in greenhouses. … choose less contaminated areas in other countries even..but of course the water. So I simply do not know. I would love some feedback.

  • I witnessed a potential flame / event tonight. Likely The common shared spent fuel pool.

    My guess is tepco is using the guise of the bright light to cover the damages to this facility…

    Very large steam event currently developing.


    Report comment

    • I have been pondering that light source for quite some time now. I wonder if it is somehow cleansing or vaporizing the environment. ???

      I know a usa marine team was dispatched with some very sensitive air monitoring equipment shortly after the event began. The report stated that the team had a laser / array that could read the amount of radioactivity in the cloud layer. Measuring both the size and severity of the radiation in the environment.

      So

      I assume the light can only be 1 of 4 things.

      1. Basic illusion / manipulation.

      2. A furnace / which vaporizes contaminated materials.

      3. It could be cleansing the environment?

      4. It could be a glass furnace to create?

      Only guesses I have.

      I also get the feeling that reactor 3 has a large hole in the containment dome and tepco has been sneakily mixing cement in with the top feed of the cooling on the reactor… Which temporarily plugs the leak. Only to collapse every so often to need another repair. If this is the case the situation as usual should be expected to deteriorate here soon enough…

      That is what happens when you allow politicians and huge corporations to come in and 'influence' what should be a bottoms up, public access media channel.

              It shows a regulatory agency that is filtering information and making decisions in a way inconsistent with the law and its charter right from the beginning of the disaster.

              Unfortunately, it also confirms all the speculation we made for which we had no actual data – but lots of conflicting bits – That those on the Reagan got seriously radiated. That the core of #3 did indeed blow. I don't have time to asborb it all now, but I'm going to.

  • Radiation levels in Fukushima now available in real time

    The science ministry has begun posting real-time radiation levels on its website at 2,700 locations across Fukushima Prefecture, including schools and parks.

    To access radiation levels measured at 10-minute intervals, go to http://radiomap.mext.go.jp/ja/.

    The system cost 2.6 billion yen ($33 million) to create and was up and running Feb. 21.

    It measures air radiation levels of gamma rays at a height of 50 centimeters above the ground in kindergartens, day care centers and elementary schools and at a height of 1 meter above the ground at junior high and senior high schools and at other public facilities.

    The measurement stations operate on solar cells and use built-in cellphone devices to transmit data automatically to a server computer operated by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.

    The website, which shows the locations of radiation gauges on a map, allows the user to check out current radiation levels and how they changed.

    Hi all,

    Great sharing as always, thank you.

    I was saddened by the anger/swearing at each other in the comments on this article at EX-SKF. I am so grateful for the community here, which I only recently found.

    I'd been doing research and writing on DU before Fukushima–of course since then I have become even more worried about the percentage of out planet that we are making permanently uninhabitable.

    So many of the forums neglect to channel the rage communally at the perpetrators, but instead waste energy via unacceptable behavior toward those who post, towards each other. And it's not just moles who are doing this, though I am sure they love to see it.

    But here, I find solace in a world that is offering so little solace, and activism that is educational and constructive.

    Thanks again,

    So if not North Anna's radiation, its the "no danger for fallout from Japan.."–which the government says. So cant have cake and eat it too..somewhere radiation has contaminated the ground water.
    For the record, VEPCO also (like TEPCO) lies and trys to manipulate data for their benifit. Most resently in Virginina Beach, VEPCO testified there was NO danger from "fly ash" or the residuals from their processes. So a golf course was built. Now the ground water is contamninated, and a class action suit filed as NO ONE IN GOVERMENT has done anything to help the affected land owners. VEPCO ignores. The legal case, however, has surfaced emails (listening TEPCO?) of the efforts to hide the danger. This is exactly the same "playbook" used by TEPCO. And now for the North Anna plant..no danger..all fine..NOT OUR PROBLEM. Wonder when we will learn??

    In the weeks following the March 11th disaster the estimated exposure dose for children was abnormally elevated, leading the Japanese government to begin testing to deduce the amount of radioactive iodine concentrated in the thyroid of over 1000 children shorty after the accident. Many parents demanded the tests, drawing parallels with the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster, after which locals reported thyroid disorders, a problem sometimes associated with radiation exposure.

    The Japanese Yomiuri report shows that the government’s Nuclear Emergency Response Headquarters did not fulfill requests from the Cabinet’s Nuclear Safety Commission of Japan (NSC) to conduct further testing on the internal radioactive exposure of children, due to fears of how the public may react to the inspections. One tragedy endured by the Soviets after the Chernobyl disaster, was an epidemic of thyroid cancer among people exposed to the radiation as children, which to a large extent was preventable and would probably not have happened if people had been told to stop drinking locally produced, and today many argue that there is no justifiable reason for it to be repeated in Japan.

    It takes some time for thyroid cancer just like other cancers to start and set in after initial radiation contamination exposures and this is exactly how this nuclear folly has gotten away with such past practices and deceit.

    The cats out of the bag and the truth is now available for all to see. We have been in the past and are now being lied to today on a continual basis by all authorities world wide concerning Nuclear Power and related Nuclear Technologies.

    60 years is all it took to trash the entire planet. Thats some real human progress based on our current understandings and promoted educational systems.

    CB thanks, I have actually been here for quite some time. My silence in the past should not be construed as a negative but as a positive as I have watched the warriors on this site carry the true concern for the future of all humanity and not unlike a shield for all others to admire.

    We are entering very dangerous times my friend and this current worldwide Nuclear problem is leading the pack.
