Yomiuri Shimbun, Dec. 24, 2014 (emphasis added): Patients with ‘flesh-eating bacteria’ hit record — A record high 263 patients are suffering from streptococcal toxic shock-like syndrome (STSS), a deadly infection… National Institute of Infectious Diseases (NIID) is calling on people to visit a doctor…  immediately after a possible STSS symptom is detected, such as a severe sore throat… [A] maximum of 100 patients suffered from the disease annually until 2010… This year, that number reached 263 as of Dec. 14, topping the previous worst record of 242 in 2012… Tokyo ranked first with 41… The infection is mainly caused by Group A Streptococcus… but details remain unclear. It is unknown what triggers the disease… The condition may lead to a state of shock, multiple organ failure and other results in a few days… It is also called “flesh-eating bacteria” [affecting] tissues such as on limbs and the face… NIID official said [to] “seek immediate treatment… should STSS symptoms appear.”

New studies by scientists from Fukushima Institute of Public Health and others:

US Dept. of Defense, 2012: (Photo – “Crew member is checked for radiation [in] Japan… March 2011”); Ch. 5 – Therapy for Bacterial Infections following Ionizing Radiation Injury[C]oncerns about nuclear disasters have shifted to emphasize the low-dose acute and low-dose–rate chronic irradiation scenarios of nuclear accidentsnonlethal doses of ionizing radiation enhance susceptibility to exogenous bacterial infections… The predominant bacteria isolated from wounds included… b-hemolytic [and] a-hemolytic Streptococcus… [I]mmune responses are greatly diminished within a few days after irradiationindividuals should be monitored continually for… symptoms of infection [which] are difficult to treat effectively in those who receive whole-body ionizing radiation.

Al Jazeera: What does Polonium do to a person?… An amount equivalent to the size of a particle of dust is lethal. After being taken into the body… it bombards people’s cells with millions of radioactive alpha particles [and] damages the intestines, causing toxic shock syndrome.

Dr. Nick Priest, toxicology professor at Middlesex Univ.: If polonium is ingested [it] will travel through the gut… Destruction of the inner gut wall will lead to toxic shock syndrome.

      The insanely short-sighted rap about CO2 really has to stop. ONE HUNDRED TIMES more destructive is METHANE. Which is being released big-time even from the rotting from mass deaths of plankton, which now gives off methane instead of oxygen. Plus the ripping apart of the ozone layer from radiation, and HAARP (and who knows what else), which speeds the melt of the Arctic ice caps, again releasing methane, which warms the waters further and releases yet more methane in a self-re-enforcing feedback loop. Add in acidification of the oceans from the radioactivity and numerous other factors and suddenly, CO2 doesn't look like the overwhelmingly dominant problem.

      Then also factor in that the military and the tech industries use WAY more CO2 than us poor "lesser" humans do (and anyone is pushing for THEM to stop?,) and at least we are reaching a viable model, instead of pat slogans. But is there any way to air black budget programs, or to reduce the immense "convenience" that globalized tech has given humanity?

      Let's also have a great big talk with the "climate engineers" too, who think that "owning the weather" is way more important than whether the human, animal and plant ecology lives or dies.

      I want every good soul who wants a good life on Earth to have it. I hope that some miraculous clarity and/or invention can make that possible. It's just gotten daunting to even envision how that kind of survival will be possible. Meanwhile, power is totally in the…

      Yea, not a big problem..

      Oh and then there is the problem of CO2 causing global warming, which then triggers the melting of methane, which is orders of magnitude worse than CO2. Methane is accelerating the global warming so that it is picking up speed and happening even faster.

      And of course, nuclear power generates huge amounts of radioactive carbon 14, 12, 11, God only knows how many, which kill and mutate all vegetation.

        Carbon-12 C-12, and Carbon-13 C-13 are stable, C-14 half-life is 5,700 years and thus radioactive. C-11 has a 20 minute half-life.

        C-14 and C-11 are not usually found in fossil fuels. Radioactive C-14 IS in biofuels, including wood & corn ethanol.

    Sorry this is wiki.. kinda busy for research today.

    The accidental or hostile exposure of individuals to ionizing radiation is of great public and military concern.,[1][2] Numerous studies demonstrated that the susceptibility of mammals to systemic infection from endogenous and exogenous organisms increased following exposure to ionizing radiation.[3] The risk of systemic infection is higher whenever there is a combined injury such as burn (including radiation burn or trauma.[4] There is a direct quantitative relationship between the magnitude of the neutropenia that develops after exposure to radiation and the increased risk of developing infection. Because, no controlled studies of therapeutic intervention in humans are available most of the current recommendations are based on animal research."

    To the horror of right wing fanatics worried about stem cell research preying on aborted fetuses, it appears stem cell therapy is one of the top tools for treating radiation victims. The acronym CSF (Colony Stimulating Factor) is the politically correct medical nomenclature for this therapy.

    Horrible things happen in the human body from high dose exposure. In all fatal cases the human bone marrow is reduced to a liquid mass with no therapy that can reverse that damage. The Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute (AFRRI) in Bethesda, Maryland, USA, started in 1961 conducts research in the field of radiobiology. They probably didn't get the OK from military leaders to help out with the military personnel irradiated in Japan in 2011 (and still being irradiated on the mainland at scores of US bases).

    For a very technical look at the US medicsl response to the worst irradiation incidents in US history check out this document:

    Fungal skin infections will probably also increase in areas dosed by
    ANY level of ionizing radiation that escapes containment.

    One has to rethink one's views on disease in general in our nuclear and GMO

    I suspect that the Japanese authorities are frantically trying to "save face" … literally with this skin-eating outbreak.

    I predict that we will all be faced with various conditions that don't resolve correctly with antibiotic treatments.

    Our society is too piecemeal when it comes to promoting general health.

    It isn't a drug that will cure ya but a mind-set and a little common sense.

    Japan Jan 6 (Reuters) – The influential governor of a Japanese region rebuffed on Tuesday pleas by Tokyo Electric Power to restart the world's largest nuclear plant, saying the utility had not atoned for the disaster at its Fukushima nuclear plant in 2011.

    Governor Hirohiko Izumida of Niigata prefecture is a staunch critic of Tokyo Electric Co and has veto power over the operation of the company's Kashiwazaki Kariwa nuclear station, a seven-reactor facility on the coast 300 km (180 miles) northwest of Tokyo.

    "Tepco has not been proactive in investigating the cause of the Fukushima accident," Izumida told Tepco president Naomi Hirose during their first meeting in almost a year. …

    "nonlethal doses of ionizing radiation" Gee, as opposed to what? Polonium poisoning where it is a race between internal bleeding to death or dying of internal infections.

    Someone else has already mentioned the overloading of a person's defense mechanisms to the point of ceasing to function or becomes beds of infection themselves. This could lead to all sorts problems without mentioning the root cause…radiation poisoning.

    Seems silly to reinvent the cause of death by avoiding mentioning radioactive fallout but that is exactly what they are trying to do. Next silliest thing is, "He died of a bad attitude."

  • Immune systems breaking down.
    This is also being recorded in the united states. The case level is much higher than being reported. In both countries. It is just normal bacterial infection. Your body just can't fight it anymore.

    Larger deposits of radiation should be vectoring from the reactors now. The least resistant path which the radiation travels along has been moderating less and less radioactive isotopes everyday.

    People should have paid more attention during the wasting syndrome, and mass oceanic stranding / reports. Whole species are now being affected. Including mankind… Everything in fukushimas wake is starting to be reduced in lifespan.

    Note documented rises of infant deaths, deadly bacterial infections, cancers ect.

    Noting that more information is coming to light regarding plutonium and higher dose rates in the oceanic deposits than were previously recorded…
    The information is still being spoon fed to eliminate public outrage. No one even thinks to come here or care except the users on board. Enenews is labeled a tinfoil hat community now. It's been that way since late 2013.

    There is no hope any longer. The ele was released in 2011. Its been trapped within the soil and the soil content is now seeping into the ocean. Its in full distribution at this time.

    Nice knowing you all, Until next time…

    • I believe this event is considered an a.l.m.e. Not an e.l.e. (all level mutational event).

      As immunities encounter new and damaging mutations of both known and unknown viruses. I feel nearing 2027 humanity will be at the brink of its final extinction. I also feel that all out nuclear war will be blamed for the viruses that will carry out at that time.

      WW3 will likely take place within 2 years time. Followed within all out nuclear war in 7 years time. Various known and unknown exotic viruses, bacterial, and nuclear agents will begin hampering our species. Several more nuclear reactors will likely fail or fall during this period. Some potentially due to cyber warfare. Many countries will be reduced to ruble. Whole villages and cities toppled by massive war movements, and strategical attacks. I see famine, destruction, natural disasters taking place.

      Emmy – " Enenews is labeled a tinfoil hat community now. It's been that way since late 2013." You would expect no less as Enenewsers argue the pros and cons of anything nuclear and that is technological heresy. The difference is we discuss isotopes and various forms and measurement of radiation, and concepts concerning breach of containment etc. etc. We do not express concerns regarding anal cavity searches done by aliens, nor do we weigh in how much control of matter can be done mentally. Except for geo-engineering, this site stays with matters pertaining to nuclear issues. Only a tinfoil hat world would allow nuclear tools that cost all of life so dearly. You be the judge of who's crazy.

    Most people think of a human being as being one living entity, that is not true without hundreds of different bacteria we would die. We have a symbolic relationship with bacteria in our stomach and surface of skin etc.
    We have a read about how the dead wood around Chernobyl does not rot, because the bacteria that performs this function is not present or in little numbers, as the radiation has decimated them.
    All you have to do is connect the lines, it is a forgone conclusion and hense you will see more and more of these different diseases on the increase with a direct relationship to radiation levels.
    But what do I know, the sun rises in the east and sets in the west.

    I was a health professional and and I can tell you that diseases of this type arise from decreased immune function in most cases. I can tell you that most flus, measles, whooping cough, food poisonings are not fatal except in the very young, old, or people with compromised immune function.

    There have been many very surprising outbreaks of infectious illnesses in Japan since Fukushima.

    They cannot blame the outbreaks of measles, whooping cough, and even tuberculosis in Japan on lack of vaccinations since 3/11, because they vaccinate for these pathogens there.

    The measles outbreak in 2013

    fox news promotes hormesis. they were also the first to promote the john hopkins story about all cancer bein 2/3 bad luck. it is a lot more likely that the high incidence of autism came with the bomb, nuclear energy and the exponential increase in manmade ionizing radiation in the environment as majia points out, all though over vaccinating does not help. I would not go to south america without a yellow fever vaccination. Im glad i had a hepatitis b vaccination, otherwise i would have hep b as many times as i have been exposed to it from bad sticks. With the nuclear age and our fed up immunity now a lot more people would probably be sick because of our weakened immune systems without immunizations. I do not know how much longer that can go on. The jerk pceu companies definitely try to over vaccinate with flu and pneumonia vaccines that do not work.

    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

      bowling, vaccination is obviously a promising method to prime the immune system. Yet some people that have looked into it see flaws in both study results and immune function. I happen to be in close contact with nurses…as you know, the front line of the medical system, and I see an opinion change. Many are not happy with the forced vaccination, and concerned with possible side effects.

      Our wonderful nurse practitioner friend decided to opt out of the measles mumps rubella…but was soon to learn this was the least of her concerns. She had leukemia (post Fukushima), submitted to the "best" chemo therapy at Mayo and died within a week.

    In some cases, maybe chemo is the best course. But I bet their are plenty of other courses that would do less damage to the patient and with better results.

    I had MRSA (an antibiotic resistant infection) back in 1999.
    Three courses of antibiotics did nothing but help the infection spread from my shin, eating its way to the inside of my lungs. I was given two choices: Stay in the hospital bed with morphine drip until my death or go home and die. I am typing here 15+ years later because I found out about colloidal silver after leaving the hospital. After using it as directed, I beat the infection. I make it now for less than $1.50 a gallon. It may even work to strengthen an immune system against the ravaging effects of radio-activity. I will be my own test subject on that, but encourage all of you to educate yourselves about it and give it a try.
