Study: Fukushima the most serious man made disaster in human history — Obesity rates now nearly double Japan average — Excessive weight gain after nuclear crisis “a marker of radiation brain damage”

Published: January 24th, 2015 at 2:12 pm ET


Asahi Shimbun, Jan 24, 2015 (emphasis added): Obesity a growing problem among children in Fukushima… An education ministry survey released Jan. 23… found that 15.07 percent of 9-year-olds in Fukushima Prefecture were 20 percent or more heavier than normal. The figure was much higher than the national average of 8.14 percent, and the highest among all 47 prefectures. [It] was also the highest among all prefectures for 7-year-olds, 11-year-olds and 13-year-olds… According to the ministry, obese children are most commonly found in the Tohoku region… the trend has been especially acute in Fukushima Prefecture since the 2011 onset of the nuclear crisis…. The ministry said this appeared to be because children in Fukushima Prefecture are restricted from playing outdoors due to radiation fears…

National Research Center for Radiation Medicine (Ukraine), 2013: Rise of obesity incidence in ChNPP accident survivors is related to abnormal secretion of α-melanotropin [α-MSH]

  • Accident at the Chernobyl NPP… was followed by the intensive release of a wide range of radioactive elements with affinity to many endocrine tissues. The mentioned radioactive fallout resulted in both internal and external radiation exposure, among others, of the central endocrine structures of the human brain.
  • Higher incidence of borderline obesity – 37%… and of primary obesity – 32.5%… was found in the ChNPP accident survivors vs persons in the control group (31.1 and 24.6% respectively)… For the first time there was revealed a new abnormal way of a reaction on radiation namely – the ‘blunted’ protective response of the physiological increase of α-MSH secretion along with body mass index elevation normally preventing further growth of adipose tissue. There is no increase of α-MSH secretion or even there is a hormone deficiency in most [obese] survivors of the ChNPP accident
  • Received data indicate to the increased risk of borderline obesity and obesity after the prolonged exposure to radiation in moderate doses. The mentioned risk is stipulated by disorders in melanocortin system resulting in α-MSH deficiency at the background of obesity that can be considered as a marker of such an abnormality.

Poster presentation for ‘Rise of obesity incidence in ChNPP accident survivors is related to abnormal secretion of α-melanotropin’ (pdf), 2013:

  • The Chernobyl NPP accident in 1986 and Fukushima NPP accident in 2011 are still the most serious wide scale man made disasters in human history… Massive radioactive release and fallout followed both accidents. Wide range of radioactive isotopes were released some having high affinity to hormone-producing tissues including ones in the cerebral endocrine structures… Today the Chernobyl NPP accident is not over but has evolved into the long-term fourth phase
  • Subjects: The Chernobyl NPP accident survivors (emergency workers… and evacuees…)
  • Decrease of α-MSH… can be considered as a marker of radiation brain damage. Thus α-MSH can be considered as a sensitive marker of radiation impact which deficiency of synthesis leads to disorder of pathways preventing further body mass increase…

α-MSH: Most important of the melanocyte-stimulating hormones in stimulating melanogenesis, a process that… plays a role in feeding behavior… regulation of appetite, metabolism…

    NRC: No Suspension of Fukushima-Style Nuclear Reactors

    Andrea Germanos
    Common Dreams
    January 23, 2015

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has rejected an appeal to halt operations at the nearly two dozen reactors in the nation that have the same containment system as those at the ill-fated Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactors.

    The decision was posted (pdf) in the Federal Register on Friday.

    Watchdog group Beyond Nuclear filed the appeal in April, 2011 in the wake of the Fukushima disaster, charging that the then-21 Mark 1 design General Electric Boiling Water Reactors were "accidents waiting to happen."

    The filing (pdf) sought emergency enforcement action to protect the public from the "unreliability of [the design's] containment system to mitigate a severe accident and the lack of emergency power systems to cool high density storage pools each containing hundreds of tons of thermally hot and extremely radioactive used reactor fuel assemblies located atop the reactor buildings and outside a rated containment." …

    • rogerthat

      The suspension is necessary "in response to the dramatic and ongoing failure of similarly designed and constructed GE Boiling Water Reactors systems, structures and components at one or more units at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Fukushima, Japan," the group wrote.

      In response to the decision posted Friday, Beyond Nuclear stated that though it acknowledges that "a portion of the actions that we requested in April 2011 have been taken at some of these reactors," it says it rejects the NRC decision that the issues raised have been resolved.

      Paul Gunter, Director of Reactor Oversight at Beyond Nuclear and the person who initiated and submitted the petition, called the efforts taken so far to address the issues are "inadequate half measures that need not be fully implemented for years to come, if ever."

      "In critical safety areas for the Mark I containment vulnerability, the proposed corrective actions credited in the [NR] Director’s Decision are not even conceptually finalized or approved by the regulator. Moreover, there are significant agency staff non-concurrences on how to proceed with post-Fukushima action plans," Gunter concluded.

      Jim Riccio, Greenpeace’s Nuclear Policy Analyst, wrote last month that "despite the efforts of green groups to ensure that the lessons of Fukushima have been learned by the nuclear industry and their regulators, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is backing off post Fukushima fixes at reactors around…

      • rogerthat

        the country due to fear that added regulatory costs would topple more nuclear plants."

        Beyond Nuclear adds that its continued concerns are based in part on a "nuclear industry that first considers its financial margins over public safety margins."

        "Our common struggle for real public safety, environmental protection and energy independence remains to permanently closing down an inherently dangerous atomic power industry," it states.

    There are those who insist that the greatest betrayal of mankind in history is the health betrayal by the nuclear regulatory bodies throughout the decades. The EPAs middle name is PROTECTION, yet permissible exposure levels continue to rise. Intervention levels are now popular with no one but the agency. The NRC avoids meeting with the testy public, yet are required to do so. These are the people who know what can happen if your local power company facility goes rogue. No need to change Fukushima style reactors as they have been performing for decades. I wonder how many of them are located near a large body of water that could possibly be subject to tsunamis? Does anyone know about this? Those sites and surrounding areas would not be good investment areas, not to mention …

    What happened to the grand plan of many nations coming together with unlimited resources and hundreds of thousands of workers? Where are the great engineering firms when we really need them? You remember – this is known as the communist approach to nuclear disasters. We in the west are letting the market sort this one out and so far the market (TEPCO) is not doing well. Following the common sense (communist in some cases) approach has gotten me into trouble in the past. It is a good thing most communist nations are gone or at least infatuated with capitalism.

  • Gentle Giant Gentle Giant

    DS, you have identified the source of the problem we face. The controlling members of TPTB don't want a solution to the problem yet. Not enough dying, destruction and suffering has occurred for them to do anything. We saw what the Russians did at Chernobyl at the cost of their Soviet Union. The cracking cement sarcophagus at Chernobyl will soon be dust and the war in the Ukraine is partly meant to halt the progress of covering it anew. The World Controllers could easily muster resources to drop zeolite mud nonstop on the 3 known disaster sites at Fukushima, but then they would have to deal with too many pissed serfs. Better for them to get the numbers down to a "manageable" number of us before embarking on what they know will work.

    • Time Is Short Time Is Short

      More are going to blow in the US, before they cover Fukushima in zeolite. Is there enough of that stuff to cover two dozen NPP's, and two dozen Common Spent Fuel Pools?

      • Johnny Blade Johnny Blade

        @TIS; IMO zeolite layers & all the concrete they can muster in Japan or all of Asia,for that matter,won't stop the shitium bubbling,fizzing,erupting & continuously leaching into the ground beneath the portal to Hell that is Fukushima-Daichi/1-F,Japan and the mechanisms by which said shitiums are released & transported via the sea,air & Japanese agricultural produce & mfg'd. products exported to faraway lands since the sarcophagus/containment options proposed in the past still won't fly at the irresponsibly/incompetently sited,belly-up NPP and the ice wall only seems to have made matters worse,if that's even possible[?]! 😐
        The only thing TEPCO's covering of tattered reactor buildings has succeeded at & for which the only thing the "Big Top"[s] & "fuel transfer/handling" structure erected above R4 & partially obstructing camera view of R3 & either burning or spontaneously going critical,etc. CSFP that IMO looks worse every time I see it[?],and I seem to recollect the attempt to dismantle the Big Top R1 went awry with the thing being melted to the metal building & a modest plume of shitium was discharged when their failed attempt to remove it saw just the roof of a good portion of it tear off[?]! I just don't see how they can ever regain the upper hand after waiting so long that the runaway,MIA coriums have sunk,burned their way halfway back to Hell,where nuclear shitium was spawned.The sea and WE are pretty much fucked from where I'm standin' 🙁 ….

    As another Monday gets rolling and I catch up on the latest this and that (no internet, TV or smart phone) I become more and more convinced that GMI is alive and well.

    It is insane to build nuclear bombs and then "recycle" and revamp them.

    It is insane to think the wealthy elite are interested in paying their fair-share of taxes (income).

    It is insane to think governments actually exist for the people rather than monied interests.

    It is insane to think we will find a "cure" for cancer when it is a result of our toxic loading of the biosphere.

    It is insane to realize how much the world spends on warfare and surveillance.

    Waging peace is the hardest lesson humans never learned.

              I thought you'd want to know what is in the last week's news. No one knows what the dates are. And you don't understand anything that anyone says outside your own belief system. Christians don't have to go to Israel to meet their death and perhaps won't have to be part of the tribulation either, but will be dead even before it starts. But no one knows. You don't believe in a creator. This is not a being created by man in his own image. But you are welcome to your beliefs. It is not Christians who are destroying the world, but those with different belief systems. Every person in the world has a belief system. Why do you attack those who are non-militant and non-violent who have given up worldly goods and any hope of finding a wonderful life on this world? You think that all Cristians believe the same thing, but that is not the case and it is you who is discriminatory. And as for God, let his speak for Himself. He will anyway.

              The point is, please be apprised of the events of the elite who are destroying the world. And what is the point of attacking people all the time?

            • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

              PtT, Its dangerous to have the faith that an outside source, be it aliens, Yaweh, or the DOE will solve the nuclear crisis. Thats my main concern…that many of these folks in power as well as the public seem to have such a faith. Why is it dangerous? Because it allows complacence, or even worse, a positive excitement that better days, glorious days are just around the corner. Yaweh can solve anything, right?

              There is a real concern with Abe for this very reason.

              People are in the habit of waiting for others to solve the problems. It wont work and will lead to utter catastrophe. I like 4Yashuah's posts just fine, but every one starts with an advertisement. What if it was a Muslim ad, or a communist pro Putin ad, would you mind? Such advertisement is not uncommon amongst the varied religious waiters. At least its not a pro nuclear advertisement. The idea of having so much faith that you move to Israel for the immanent rapture comes from the link you wanted me to watch.

                PtT, attack is not the right way to read my little notes.

Its been foretold and everything. They said they can cure my blain damij and neutralize the radiation by phase conjugation. So were good

              • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar Praising the Truth

                That wasn't the point of that link at all. Some people teach that the tribulation isn't for Christians at all because they already have faith. It is only for others to perhaps come to believe. This person at that link teaches that the rapture will come before the tribulation. In the New Testament, the teaching is that Jews at the end will come to believe in Jesus at the second coming. Do you know that Jews who believe in the Old Testament are waiting for the Messiah?

                People advertise for Putin all the time on this website, etc. They advertise for fossil fuels and against renewables, etc. People proclaim their religions all the time on this website. But you only seem to have a need to attack Christians. And what you are really attacking are people who might say they are Christians, but are not. No one thinks anyone is going to come from outside to clean up the nuclear mess. Only humans can stop making more of a nuclear mess, and that isn't happening. Christians are looking for a home somewhere far from the earth. And they have been doing that for over 2,000 years. So the earth has been a terrible place for many humans for a very long time.

                So are you for free speech or not? Can you tolerate others or not? I think radiation is destroying everything including in some individuals the ability to have empathy. Everyone is capable of only their best. There are no superhumans here or elsewhere.

                • obewanspeaks obewanspeaks

                  There is plenty of free speech here and I think you are missing his abstract thought process about religion in general.

                  Christians are only one of the many running around on this planet these days, but they are a very large segment of the overall religious block.

                  There was a reason for all of this and it has been explained clearly many times, but yet many do not see the light as to why they exist in the first place.

                  Very ancient are the ties and they are very purposeful even today.

                    The reason all the talk in the world doesn't shake the faith of Christians is because they see the miracles in their own lives and they know personally the difference in their own lives granted to them by the angels.

                    So talk away. There are reasons why 1/3 of the world is Christian. Violence will never rid the world of nuclear energy and weapons, because there are crazy people who think that they need to use nuclear weapons to protect them from violence. Of course, there is nothing to ultimately guard anyone from too much exposure to nuclear radiation and other kinds of radiation and other kinds of poisons.

      I am not too comfortable with you labeling those into
      nutrition as health nuts. Western Medicine ignores the
      important role nutrition plays in health. Western Medicine
      has no approach to detoxification or effective stress
      reduction. You know all they offer is radiation surgery,
      synthetic drugs and bogus symptom relief. The
      Natural Pathic community of healers have a far
      healthier approach to keeping healthy though
      no one has anything to prevent cellular damage from
      You are right, radiation is going to cause so much
      disease that it will be hard to say what caused what
      in the end as it will be denied as a causative factor.
      In the meantime we are all challenged to keep as
      healthy as possible, reduce toxicities and reduce stress.

      As the old saying goes Heal Thyself First.

I mostly avoided it only from my limited knowledge I remembered from science class, as no information other than the initial news showing two reactors blow sky-high. Then cold-shutdown! I did take some precautions while I tried to warn others. That's how I came up with my name!

    The Manmade Nuclear Radiation problem is now a huge/massive world problem that has been bioaccumulating on the surface of this Earth/Planet since the early 1900's.

    Massive increases in manmade background radiation readings have been confirmed by the NRC.

    But, but, we must protect the cash cow's money flows at all this case about 600,000 people pay with their shortened lives each and every year though agonizing primitive painful cancer treatments. 🙁

    The human butchers tossed the tumors they found to the side..

    I'm not the most tech-savvy person and I have limited resources, but wouldn't it help warn people better if say a website like radnet actually sensors all over the country? How much would it cost to place them around? Well while I mentioned that maybe I should complain as I often do about the satellites that us taxpayers already paid for! We can detect gamma from distant galaxies, why can't we point one at the earth? Aren't there already ones looking at say, North Korea and Iran? I guess we are not worthy of that knowledge yet, only when enough of us are gone and there aren't enough people left to run the "death machines"!

    Maybe this whole mess is just part of our human destiny. Without wars and disease the planet would be way over populated. I know now the motivation to portray the Russians as a threat was mostly fabricated. Their people were told the same thing about us at the same time! Right down to the poverty and soup lines bullshit! Of course we wouldn't have this fine forum on the internet without that fear in place! And it continues on….

    Not dealing with nuclear waste unjust to future generations

    Suffolk County Legislator Jay Schneiderman is seeking to get county government to commission a study on the heating of waters of the Long Island Sound and Peconic Estuary by the two Millstone nuclear power plants in Connecticut. The facilities are just 18 miles across the Sound from the Island.

    Times Review Newsgroup has covered the story (see the Reporter, November 27, 2014, “Nuclear plant under scrutiny”). Mr. Schneiderman (I-Montauk), whose district includes the Island, is continuing to keep the pressure on.

    A former science teacher with certifications to teach chemistry, biology, physics and general science, Mr. Schneiderman notes the massive amounts of water sucked in from the Sound by the Millstone nuclear plants. Massive as in two billion gallons of water moving in and then being discharged daily. “Three times the volume of the water going over Niagara Falls each day,” Mr. Schneiderman said, “comes out 20 degrees warmer than when taken in.”

    Mr. Schneiderman has written to Dr. Larry Swanson, associate dean of the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences at Stony Brook University, saying he’s “interested in having your team … assist in researching the thermal effects on the Long Island Sound and Peconic Estuary of the current method of cooling used at the Millstone Nuclear Power Facility.” …

    Letter: Waste questions still unanswered
    By Betty Van Vugt from Stanley, N.D. on Jan 24, 2015

    The mandate of a health department is to protect the health and welfare of people who live in its jurisdiction. That being said, I am baffled as to why the North Dakota Health Department is proposing a tenfold increase in the allowed picocuries in radioactive waste. Exactly whose health and welfare does that protect?

    The three public meetings to address this proposal were scheduled in Williston, Bismarck and Fargo on weekday evenings (Jan. 20, 21, 22). When additional public meetings were requested in additional oilfield communities, the request was denied. Again I am baffled as to the selective ability to say “no.”

    Since I was not able to attend any of the public meetings, I would like to put some questions out there in hopes they will be answered:

    Under whose directive was this increase proposed?

    Why did it take four months for the Health Department to release to the public the results of the Argonne study (feasibility study for increasing picocuries)?

    Were alterations/omissions made to the results before they were released?

    If so, what was altered and why?

    If the argument is going to be made that other states allow larger amounts of picocuries than North Dakota currently allows, why then is that same reasoning not used to lower our gas flaring rates to the level other states…

      The new ones aren't necessarily the problem. It's the old ones, surrounded by piles of used nuclear fuel, needing to be cooled for billions of years.

      We'll all be long gone before the new generation of NPP's blow. And blow they will, because there won't be anyone to take care of them. Future robots will be unfazed by radiation, so they'll just walk away and let them burn.

      Imagine being a UFO and visiting Earth 1,000 years from now. One of the most toxic planets in the universe.

    Insuring nuclear suppliers using Indian tax payers’ money – how nationalist is diluting liability, Mr. PM?
    Posted on January 26, 2015 by C.A.N.
    By Kumar Sundaram

    On the eve of India’s Republic Day, the Modi government has announced that it will arm-twist the public-owned General Insurance Company(GIC) to provide insurance cover.

    Though the exact details are still not clear, the media reports suggest that the Indian government has found a roundabout way for the US nuclear suppliers’ like Westinghouse and General Electric (GE) which have been lobbying to affect an amendment in the Nuclear Liability Act of 2010 ever since its inception.

    Touted as a big breakthrough during President Obama’s ongoing visit, this move is clearly a capitulation to the long-standing demand on the issue.

    • PlowboyGrownUp

      "There is now globally published evidence that there is NO safe dose of nuclear radiation exposure.

      There are calls for the Nuclear National Policy Statement to be reconsidered in the light of all the new evidence. The village of Beckermet is set to receive 3 dangerous reactors and associated sprawl just a five minute walk from the centre of the village. This would double the nuclear sprawl of Sellafield. There can be no justification at all for any industry to operate with such a cost to human life. Sellafield’s and the nuclear industry’s death grip is tighter than it was in 1993."

    All children worldwide deserve equal protection. So please tell me why children in the US are allowed to eat at minimum 12 times more man-made radioactive poison in their food than children in Japan?

    I am writing to demand, in the continuing wake of the Japan nuclear catastrophe, that FDA be required to lower the recommended amount of radioactive cesium allowed in our food to 5 Bq/kg.

    I also demand that you request widespread testing of the US food supply immediately. It is our RIGHT TO KNOW how contaminated our food is and our choice whether or not we eat it.

    PLYMOUTH, Mass. — Officials say a Massachusetts nuclear power plant was forced to shut down during the blizzard but there was no danger to the public.

    In a statement, officials at the Pilgrim nuclear power plant in Plymouth said it stopped operating in accordance with procedure after distribution lines that send power from the plant to the electric grid became inoperable because of the weather.

    The plant said safety systems worked as designed and there was no threat to plant workers or the public. Officials said the facility — the only nuclear power plant in Massachusetts — was being powered by emergency diesel generators and could tap into an offsite power source if needed.

    State Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs Matthew Beaton said he did not know when Pilgrim might go back on line.

    LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – A new generation of solar panels made from a mineral called perovskite has the potential to convert solar energy into household electricity more cheaply than ever before, according to a study from Briain's Exeter University.

    Super-thin, custom-colored panels attached to a building's windows may become a "holy grail" for India and African countries, Senthilarasu Sundaram, one of the authors of the study, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

    "In those countries these types of material will be like a holy grail: they can both shade windows … and at the same time produce electricity," he said.

    With a thickness measured in billionths of a meter, solar panels made of perovskite will be more than 40 percent cheaper and 50 percent more efficient than those commercially produced today, Sundaram said.

    Unlike other solar panels, those made of perovskite can absorb most of the solar spectrum and work in various atmospheric conditions, rather than only in direct sunlight…
