Dr. Inoue, the president of Setagaya Inoue clinic talks Tepco’s announcement about former Fukushima plant chief Yoshida is a lie. […]

Tepco explained it can not have anything to do with radiation because esophagus cancer has incubating period for 5~10 years […]

However, “incubating period” is the term for disease caused by bacteria or virus. Professional clinician does not use the term of incubating period for cancer, Dr. Inoue talks.

“Esophageal cancer is! Incubation period is 5-10 years but, if clinicians say such a thing absolutely.” Incubation period “is the time to get that body from the symptoms and pathogen infection usually, I say that viruses and bacteria. TEPCO, and would like to stress exposure, but it does not matter, there are people who have commented I do physics “(Inoue, Kiichi Inoue Hospital Setagaya President)

December 09, TEPCO, M. Yoshida, a former director resigned in bad shape to continue taking the helm on November 24 in front Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, announced that it was suffering from cancer of the esophagus, NIRS as a view, “For cancer of the esophagus due to exposure, reducing the incubation period of 5-10 years, regardless of the exposure,” said. Simultaneously, the doses of 70 mSv for Yoshida, special doses of 250 mSv was reached during an emergency operation.

But denied any form of cancer associated with exposure only, so Inoue’s introduction, what skeptical itself many TEPCO announced. Also referred to the society reporter.

“Instead of simply announcing a physician, the TEPCO” writing “is not obvious. Except esophageal cancer is also for the amount of exposure or not, the real disease at presentation that do not know,”  but “When the bombing was unlikely esophageal cancer,” Both, the president said Inoue.

Esophageal cancer is stronger alcohol and tobacco, it tends to hurt the lining of the esophagus by eating hot things. Mr. Yoshida is also known for smokers, who was also stressed as a strong front at the helm. It is not surprising as there is no cancer led to the development.

At any rate, I just hope that the survivors of Mr. Yoshida, the ambiguity of the remark still seems to TEPCO.

      If it was indeed caused by Fukushima, I hope he suffers an incredible amount of pain. I hope his familly gets the same thing and also suffers intense pain. These are the people that make the shitty descisions that fuck the rest of us over. I hope his throat rots off, bit by bit for years…..

    TEPCO wants you! (to be their deadman)-

    The higher up’s at TEPCO seem to take a strong stance against sniching on themselves. The problem I see is they all are getting cancer. Fukushima’s reactors are now like hyperbolic aging chambers for non-saiyan species. The longer you play in the radioactive sandbox the faster pieces of your body decay. Everybody knows what radiation does and now the denial game? It’s been 25 years since Chernobyl so we know what 1 reactor does when it explodes and now the newest human testing of “3+spent fuel pool and stuff”.
