NHK WORLD, July 2, 2014 (h/t Deep13th Nuclear Waste Info): Nuclear Watch: Disaster-Related Deaths

  • NHK: Healthcare workers in northeastern Japan are trying to shed light on a silent killer. More than 3,000 people have died in the years since the 2011 earthquake and tsunami and the start of the nuclear crisis… Different levels of government have been working to reverse the trend… The staff and volunteers at the nonprofit group Nagumi have been trying to stop a growing problem in Fukushima, they work on behalf of the prefectural government to prevent disaster related deaths.
  • Kazuma Yonekura, Director of Nagumi: We’re still seeing more and more people with physical conditions and diseases… I don’t think it’s enough to take measures against suicide… I will keep asking why the client died, what we can do to save his life, and what kind of support is truly needed.
  • NHK: Yonekura says the uncertainty about the future in Fukushima has prompted him to focus on long-term open ended support. He says communities need to come together to help individuals, especially in Fukushima, where the accident is still very much a present day concern.

Note: The orange bars on the map indicate the number of disaster-related deaths after 3/11 disaster. The blue bars indicate the number of deaths on 3/11 when the earthquake and tsunami struck. Notice that no data is shown for the area in red that has been most affected by the fallout from the nuclear disaster — and that the vast majority of deaths after 3/11 are in areas surrounding Fukushima Daiichi.

        hello z & nbo,1st I want to agree that it's a big relief when admin gets back safe & sound and that goes with or without new threads! Secondly,I have someone working on getting me the IL cancer stats kept from public knowledge for 3 years and all current compared to the crap they pulled by publicizing only the 2010 report with a fucking smirk since it holds that cancer incidence is down based on that flawed data & position claiming & started out with "Good News!!" in the AMA
        journal a month or so ago! My source also is trying to get more obscure documents that evaded the shredders that describe the details surrounding the change many haven't heard about re; the standard "5 yr. treatment plan and criteria used to provide the prognosis's & odds of survival" has quietly been changed to 10 years but isn't widely known prior to whatever concocted explanation they plan to use to justify acts that change the outcomes,expectations of life & the presence of "something" that isn't exactly conducive to maintaining the stupid smile & "positive" attitude they politely claim has such a profound impact on survival expectations.Sounds too much like "go suck a banana & smile while you do it you POS civilian sheep!!?Anyways it may contain PA & other state/national stats you seek so I'll forward it upon my receipt to admin and/or anyone interested when I see him & pick up it & copies of the "sealed" portion of my wife's file & findings of the tumor biopsies! ttyl

      zogerke, if you're in Pennsylvania (as you suggest?,) that's one State we would REALLY like to see the cancer registry for. A dear friend from Pittsburgh was suddenly diagnosed with two separate cancers — lung for a lifetime NON-smoker, and thyroid, which is still a rare cancer. By the time they operated on the thyroid it was stage four (though thank God, she's improving.) It mystified us because we thought that the West Coast was the MOST endangered. But recently, Leuren Moret said that a lot depends on air currents at the time and that right after Fukushima, PITTSBURGH got the worst hit.

      That probably solves the medical mystery with our friend (though we are still angry!,) but I'd be interested in knowing how many in Pittsburgh suffered the same fate.

        WeNotTheyFinally, Deaths in Pittsburgh?

        Try this:
        "Radionuclides associated with hydraulic fracturing are man-made radionuclides which are used in the hydraulic fracturing process as radioactive tracers or naturally occurring radionuclides released by this process. Injection of man-made radioactive tracers, along with the other substances in hydraulic-fracturing fluid, is often used to determine the injection profile and location of fractures created by hydraulic fracturing."
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radionuclides_associated_with_hydraulic_fracturing
        There are many such articles online and there is also the possibility that this may be an avenue that has been pursued in the disposal of nuclear waste.

        And people wonder why there are earthquakes occurring around fracking?

        we not they finally…i live in philadelphia. if i still worked for insurance or utilities i would have some access to some info. i do not.

        if anyone knows personally any insurance brokers or underwriters…especially from a place like state farm….they keep workers comp rates, and illness and injury medical cost data ny industry and by very general job title. And I suspect life insurance brokers and underwriters keep mortality data by age, professions, geographical area.

        SO, if anyone had any neigborly or family connections to these people…you COULD get access to cancer stats post 2011 by state that were aggregated (lumped together, no names)…and indicated clear trends. I don't have those connections…but many of us have big families with some cousin or in law in insurance…

        it would be interesting to see how the cancer rates have trended and changed from that perspective and data. Anyone?

      Well, on the topic of the article -
      it's Nagomi, not "Nagumi" and

      http://www.jmsa.org/about-kokoro-no-care

      http://www.fmu.ac.jp/radiationhealth/conference2/presentation/31Niwa-e.pdf

      No doubt such care is needed, however, one realises any focus on mental health serves the Nukist agenda of blaming "anything but" radiation for all manner of health problems.

      In terms of menatal health care, the area was under-served BEFORE 3/11 and it just got worse after that.

      There's no safe dose of radiation. It's ALSO TRUE trauma and stress have negative health consequences. These people have experienced death, loss of homes & jobs & community. They face an uncooperative, resistant corporation and government that are making it as difficult as possible to get compensation and honest health advice. They face being railroaded back to contaminated areas. They face living in temporary housing in a contaminated region. Those untouched by earthquake, tsunami or evacuation face the dangers of radiation and they all face FURTHER disaster from Fuku.

      No one should be surprised if there's emotional and psychological problems among the populace but any effort to use that to deflect attention from radiation danger must be resisted.

      You will need more than cancer stats to fully assess the damages of the disaster. This is creating a multitude of disorders, including psychological ones (I am not just talking about psychosomatic ones related to fears, poverty, displacement, and PTSD in Japan). There also needs to be extensive research on bio-accumulative effects. It would take an international body of scientists and researchers from many disciplines to cooperate with willing governments. As we know, that is not going to happen because of pride. That is the real Japan Syndrome. So there will be a lot of illnesses and deaths that no one will be able to connect with Fukushima. After a big chunk of the world population has gone, it won't matter.

        kia, i do not blame this on japanese pride, that feels like ethnic stereotype and generalization…..i place the lack of research on the MONEY and POWER and REACH of the "military industrial corporate" complex and how it has controlled the MEDICAL and academic communities through money, grants, censorship, fear of job loss, publishing clampdown, and general corruption. THAT is the reason, not 'japanese pride', in my opinion. Huge social control mechanisms are the reason, not a national pride.

        Ho T and Chev, yes enhanced color has been around basically since Chernobyl. Getting worse by the year. Slight inclusions in the NZ sky would make for spectacular sunset/rise events. Did here early on, and due to the uplift of the air here on the Mojave, we are spared the effects to a certain degree. The examples I used as images are BAD and will get worse! I spend much of my days doing this research, and am most dismayed on certain days when this damage is very prominent in a web cam image. HoTaters, they use Aluminum crystals, Beryllium, Boron, and lord knows what else from Anthrax virus, to "NORM's" like Radium in there chemtrails! So yes the colors would be lovely but deadly as I tell people.

            It's happening all over NBO! :( But how does surviving loved ones still reject anything holding the logic & circumstances to provide answers or even closure re; the question I know I ask[ed] EVERY time someone good died young,"WHY"? WHY THEM?!! I'm greeted with contempt & anger for even daring to ever associate the radiation I strongly suspect with their illnesses & deaths as if "I" or the deceased "did something BAD" or I'm implying they were careless & deserved it??!! NOTHING could be farther from the truth and I get deeply offended even though I drop any subject that angers or saddens grieving family & friends,but often compelled to risk it anyways when the situations hold the likelihood that if families suffer unexpected tragic losses without explanation it stands to reason that whoever was with or around them when the deadly exposure[s] began then there's likely to be more local friends & loved ones that will be diagnosed with terminal things or just die young "mysteriously"(?)! If no one is allowed to mention cesium,etc. or test & release the findings(if results are positive,that is!)then it isn't such a mystery after all!What gives the nuke-pukes including those "leadership" figures who failed so badly in every way the right to groom such apathy?Naively,I trusted they'd "do the right thing" if/when ANY massive,life-threatening event ever happened,they didn't,but allows better understanding why 3/11 is ignored/dismissed & conveniently…

For example, I have a pet bird… have had it for a long time now because it was a rescue..and now it's tail feathers are growing strange and this has just started within the last 6 months or so. I fed it some meal worms..and don't know where those might have originated from, but… well… I can't help but worry esp after reading of similar things happening with birds. Of course my own family members berate me for even thinking it might have anything at all to do with 311.

    Angela_R, WNTF, Deaths in Pittsburgh?

    My employer has a small campus 20 miles north of Pittsburgh, at Cranberry Twp. We have lost three people (total population at that site ~=89) to sudden heart problems in the last 7~9 months. That is one heck of a percentage for office workers under 55 years old.

    I was stationed there 3/11 and came down with a purple eye. Only the white of the eye was discolored, no pain, no flesh injury.
    Learned here that is symptomatic of a hot particle in the eye.

    At 2+ years ago, to the East of Pittsburgh a (fracking worker came down with a debilitating skin condition. It was all over the PA news media, unknown reason for 'chemical like' burns on arms, chest, anterior torso. Never any follow up on that story, sounded a LOT like Beta burns.

    Oceans of light

    over vast human contrived darkness.

    Folks, the silent killer (s) of decaying atoms is just one more way and means that humans obliterate those around them.

    Deep in our genes we learned to kill. Others teamed up with the guy
    with the proverbial big stick.
    But some different genes lingered
    on in the gene-pool, across time, for millenia, the ones of a more
    powerful sort, the peacemakers.

    The killing cycle is like radioactive atoms, it doesn't get go away. but festers and fissions as others fan the flames and join the cause. War.

    The genes of peace are everywhere, just dominated by those who cherish corporate profits and death above all else.

    The warring genes are like ebola, trying to hemmorage social safety nets into oblivion, while they grow fat and flaunt fate every step of the way, but eventually killing the host.

    We are at a cross roads. There is NO other choice, for the rest of time, than to turn our backs on splitting the atom.

    The illness of the warring genes is and has been tryly successful.

    Time to breed and hope for healthy peace-niks.

    The scary thing about our time, is the tendency to revert to earlier

    Now is the time for the best medicine everywhere, across the planet.

    Not just Western medicine, nor Eastern, etc. But a blend of the best.

    Why are we in a society of pills and extravagant x-ray imagers when
    we could be herbaling our selves back to health and sanity?

    Why are we altering the genes of anything? Who are we to do that?

    We have the capacity to use the best science AND the best folklore simultaneously.

    To survive we have got to actually do the reverse of prepping and build community.

    The earth. Something is wrong with the decay cycle on the leaf litter. When the worms leave, the soil changes. (but also micro changes- soil bacteria, etc)

    The sky. see pink as altered atmosphere, letting more solar energies to penetrate and devastate life below.

    The political world. Absolutely batshit crazy. Just what is Independence again?

    Everywhere, people are hungering for a genuine life, not a plastic and superficial one.

    The change we want to see in the world partially comes from our own actions and thoughts.

    Time to change our world view.

    Notice how things have gotten a tad more violent since 3/11/11?

    Resources are growing scarcer as the earth diminishes her gifts due to the decaying atoms of Fukushima.

    Have noticed kids are getting swollen lymph glands in strange places (like groin area)…….

    I had lymphoma and the lymph glands will swell under the arm pits and around the groin. Lymph glands are heavy in those areas. If the glands swell it is very painful. Lymphoma is in the lymph system which is as vast as the blood system. So someone who has lymphoma has cancer from top to bottom. Lymphoma tends to collect around the stomach area. I never had stomach pain. I never had any pain at all. Lymphoma is a silent killer.

      Ran through the last link … Guess there is a little more than civilian nuclear power to be concerned about … but that seems to be their weak link … this program is so obviously STUPID … as in: if we can't get people to agree with us on the uranium scam … then there really is little hope to corral the monsters …

      I was surprised at the quote from Barbara Marx Hubbard … I've met her and went to elementary school with her kids … she seemed sensible, at the time … back in 1997 …

      But I wouldn't put anything past Dick Cheney or Heinrich Himmler (d.)

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. The Japanese have to be the stupidest humans on earth. Hey Japan, guess what, you can't live in a radioactively contaminated area and not get sick and die. End of great mystery. Move the people to a non-contaminated area or leave them there to die, you're call. Let's all watch and see what Japan does with it's own citizens.

      Well, all the nuclear industry worldwide including the US and Russia share equally stupidity and craziness. There are people in all the nuclear countries who don't share the characteristics of the nuclear industry and who are protesting.

      TPTB don't want to move then because all these people living near nuclear facilities are extremely radioactive. Include in that all the soldiers and their children of all the nations attacking and having been attacked with depleted uranium weapons and armament. There is nuclear contamination all over the nuclear countries, especially the US and Russia. TPTB are killing off everyone including their own children.

    Lymphoma is a slow growing cancer. It may take 10 – 12 years before it rears its ugly head. By then you are probably stage 4 and need treatment soon. Doctors who see swelling in the lymph glands assume the patient has an infection. They treat the infection – which can't be found – with antibiotics. The swelling recedes. This happened to me. About 10 – 12 years later the cancer will surface. If you have swelling glands and the doctor can not find the cause, try to get a bone marrow test. Lymphoma will be in the marrow. The doctors could not find the cancer but when I had a bone marrow test, there it was lurking.

    I wonder just how the Japanese medical authorities will be categorizing the deaths of those residents that choose to return to live in Fukushima.

    Suicide perhaps… State sponsored suicide…

    Because to be honest that's just what it is, I'm not saying that people wouldn't die earlier than they should have elsewhere in Japan. But returning to Fukushima, is just playing radiological Russian roulette, with just one empty chamber instead of five.

    Of course whatever wording they put on those 'death certificates', it won't be the truth, no mention of radiation, no mention the State.

    It's a million different ways to die, all cause by one radioactive particle.

    I found an article on the fellow who got overdosed at Hanaford when there was a chemical reaction and the glass glove box he was using exploded in 1976. It lists a horrific year of decontamination procedures and medical issues he endured. I wonder if his death certificate listed something medical rather than radioactive. I think the official party rule here and in Japan is that no one is going to die from radioactive contamination so we officially don't have a radioactive problem. Also helpful to the party line is not collecting the death information of anyone who works or lives around radioactivity. Yep yep no problem here, move along folks.

      According to this Bellingham, WA. article Harold McCluskey (the Atomic Man) was only "injured" when "he received 500 times the amount of radiation doctors considered safe in a lifetime and his body set off Geiger counters 50 feet away. He died at the age of 75 of a heart condition that had plagued him before the accident. The room was too radioactively contaminated to be used again and was shut up for periods of as long as 15 years at a time." http://www.bellinghamherald.com/2014/07/02/3730868/hanford-room-where-atomic-man.html

          StPS: Harold McCluskey "The Hottest Human Alive". This archived "People" magazine article is from December 3, 1984 (Vol 22, No. 23). "For nearly a month after the explosion, his family could come only within 30 feet of him. In his hometown of Prosser, he was known as 'the atomic man'. Some fearful friends called and said, 'Harold, I like you, but I can never come to your house.' For months, McCluskey rotated his haircuts among several barbers. 'I didn't want anyone's business to be hurt.' The atomic man doesn't express anger, but (his wife) Ella sometimes does. 'The Hanford and Department of Energy spokespeople tried to make it seem as though it was just an industrial accident, like someone falling in a sawmill. It was a catastrophe that ruined Harold's life." Great article. http://www.people.com/people/archive/article/0,,20089304,00.html Sometime in the future, who knows?

    Neural tube birth defects occur at 400% the national rate near Hanford nuclear site – NaturalNews.com

    Friday, July 04, 2014 by: Julie Wilson
    Tags: anencephaly, Hanford nuclear site, pesticide exposure
    (NaturalNews) Experts are still claiming to have no idea what's causing an increase in neural tube birth defects throughout central Washington, at a rate that's much higher than in the rest of the country.

    Since 2010, more than 30 babies have been diagnosed with anencephaly, a "nightmarish neural tube defect in which the fetus does not develop a forebrain, and the rest of the brain is not covered by skin or bone."

    Most babies plagued with this horrid condition either die in the womb or survive for only minutes after birth.

    The anencephaly cases are occurring in a three-county area in central Washington, including Yakima, Benton and Franklin. This particular region is known for being a major agricultural hub, producing cherries, grapes, apples, potatoes and wheat, all cultivated with pesticides containing nitrates.

    Also, the Hanford nuclear site occupies a vast area of land near this region.

    Hanford, a highly classified nuclear weapons development site responsible for developing the plutonium for the bombs that incinerated tens of thousands of Japanese during WWII, is now the most toxic nuclear waste site in the Western Hemisphere.

    Despite the last reactor being shut down in 1987, the facility still maintains solid and liquid radioactive waste, and…

    Nuclear waste disposal plans must not remain ‘aimlessly adrift’
    7:52 pm, July 03, 2014
    The Yomiuri Shimbun
    Deciding on disposal sites for “high-level radioactive waste” that comes from spent nuclear fuel at nuclear power plants is a pressing matter.
    Shunsuke Kondo has been appointed president of the Nuclear Waste Management Organization of Japan (NUMO), the entity overseeing the selection of the sites and the construction of the disposal facilities. Kondo was previously chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission. Eight of NUMO’s top 10 executives were replaced at the start of this month, including the previous president, who left his position before his tenure was up.
    In a report compiled in May, an expert committee of the Economy, Trade and Industry Ministry detailed problems in the lack of progress made in the drawn-out process of selecting candidate sites for disposal facilities since NUMO was established in 2000. The report blasted the process as being “aimlessly adrift on the ocean.” …

    A safe nuclear waste repository is not possible
    Newburyport Daily News
    To the editor:
    No More Fukashimas applauds The Daily News for printing the editorial from Meriden, Conn., entitled “Storing nuclear waste” on June 17. The editorial warns that “the best-laid schemes of the country’s regulators — the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Department of Energy — seem to have gone awry, [since] even though they have been trying for decades to establish a secure national dumping place for depleted nuclear fuel, it hasn’t happened. Nevada’s Yucca Mountain was supposed to be the site but that plan fell through.”
    The result is that nuclear plants including Seabrook are storing their high-level nuclear waste in our backyards indefinitely, even though nuclear plants were not designed to permanently store spent fuel.
    The permanent, safe disposal of nuclear fuel is a problem that may never be solved. Putting aside the formidable technical challenges of locating a proper geologic site, governors and legislatures vigorously oppose siting a nuclear waste repository in their states. In Nevada, billions of federal dollars were spent at Yucca Mountain before the government had second thoughts and stopped the project.
    The reason for the states’ relentless opposition is that voters, however open to nuclear power they might be, do not want a national nuclear waste…

    … repository in their backyards.
    But, in any event, a national waste repository would not guarantee “safe” spent fuel storage because it would create horrible new risks for the nation. If a waste repository opened, it would result in thousands of shipments of high-level radioactive spent fuel moving across the United States, raising the specter of 1.) weather or transport related accidents; or 2.) terrorism in the states through which the spent fuel travels. This threat to our nation’s security is not worth the risk.
    The only way to begin to effectively address the nuclear waste storage problem is to stop generating new spent fuel by banning the licensing and relicensing of nuclear plants, including Seabrook. A ban would gradually end production of new spent fuel as plant operating licenses lapse. Obviously, the U.S. would still need to address spent fuel that has already accumulated. As the editorial stated, “we are stuck with the consequences” of nuclear waste that has already been created. But we can stop creating more.
