EX-SKF is reporting (Emphasis Added):

Angler Who Died of Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia Didn’t Live Inside 30 Km Radius of Fuku-I and didn’t eat fish inside the 30 kilometer radius, according to the irate journalist who had written about the angler cum journalist in the Rod and Reel magazine.

As it stands, for now, the Japanese blog that said he did wasn’t quoting from the actual article in the magazine but from his/her (probably his) own concern for radiation. [...]

It’s not that the areas outside 30-kilometer radius is any safer than inside, as the radiation contamination in Fukushima City or Date City shows. [...]

The angler/journalist Abe did die of acute lymphocytic leukemia on September 16 at the age of 24 after having been hospitalized on August 26. His friends and people at the magazine didn’t think it was because of the nuke accident, but they do not rule that out. It is unknown at this point, they say. (If you read Japanese, you can read about it on this site.)
