“Fukushima Children” Show 50x Normal Rate of Thyroid Cancer

Is radiation from nuclear meltdown literally sucking the life out of those growing up nearest do the accident site in Japan?

An alarming new study suggests that Fukushima may be producing cancer clusters in Japanese children, with rates soaring to more than 50 times typical levels of thyroid cancer in the general population.

NPR reports:

A new analysis of data from Fukushima suggests children exposed to the March 2011 nuclear accident may be developing thyroid cancer at an elevated rate.

In the past year or so, the Fukushima Health Survey of more than 150,000 children has turned up 25 “suspicious or malignant cases” of thyroid cancer. Thyroid screenings in previous years have also found numerous cases.

The work, led by Toshihide Tsuda of Okayama University, is based on a large public health survey that was set up in Japan’s Fukushima prefecture following the accident. As part of the survey, children who were living near the plant at the time of the accident have been offered regular thyroid screenings.

Thyroid cancer can be caused by radioactive iodine released in a nuclear accident. Children are particularly susceptible because their thyroids are growing rapidly. Thyroid cancer was listed as a possible health risk in a World Health Organization report on Fukushima, though the report stated it would be difficult to link cancer cases to the accident.

Considering the importance of these findings on human health, and in particular the health of the children living closest to the disaster zone, you would think every agency would surface, ready to conduct further studies and come up with ways to mitigate and minimize the issues.

But instead, reality is being denied. By ignoring the problem, and pretending it doesn’t exist, liability for wrecking the lives of others can be avoided, long enough eventually for the problem simply to go away.

This has been the TEPCO formula since the beginning of the accident.

Even back in 2011, in the months after Fukushima, scientists were reporting a spike in infant mortality. Natural News reported at the time:

[W]e have very disturbing reports about a 35% spike in infant mortality in Northwest cities since the meltdown in Fukushima. Dr. Janette Sherman and Joseph Mangano wrote:

“U.S. babies are dying at an increased rate. The recent CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report indicates that eight cities in the northwest U.S. (Boise ID, Seattle WA, Portland OR plus the northern California cities of Santa Cruz, Sacramento, San Francisco, San Jose and Berkeley) reported the following data on deaths among those younger than one year of age:

“4 weeks ending March 19, 2011: 37 deaths (avg. 9.25 per week)
10 weeks ending May 28, 2011: 125 deaths (avg. 12.50 per week)”

“This amounts to an increase of 35% (the total for the entire U.S. rose about 2.3%), and is statistically significant.

Of course, excuses are being made with these latest findings, with officials claiming – as with other phenomenon like autism – that more intensive screening practices are responsible for the higher numbers of thyroid cancer.

It is – apparently – the monitoring that is to blame for the crazy spike in the numbers, not the radiation:

Japanese officials believe the screening process itself may be behind the numbers. Increased vigilance might be turning up thyroid abnormalities that otherwise would have gone undetected.

But the new paper contradicts that view. The increase in cancer is “unlikely to be caused by a screening surge,” the paper says. It claims thyroid cancer rates are highly elevated throughout Fukushima.

A tightly controlled state media state has been actively countering the report, unleashing other experts who are claiming that the study is not reliable, and is making links not supported by the evidence.

Above all, authorities are insistent that the nuclear accident cannot be linked conclusively with cancer in any of the cases..

More of that from the official “nothing to see here” and “everything is fine” departments.

But the truth is, that these children are just the canaries in the coalmine. The truth is much worse than we know… and the toll it will take on human life has only begun to surface.

It is having a profound impact not only on the environment, but on human, animal and sea life.

    What do you expect with the meltdown of the fuckishima plants. The west coast of the USA is directly affected as we all are

    The fountain of radioactive flux will emanate for over a hundred years-and longer. No one really knows where the cores that melted down are. Some have said that the cores didn’t melt down, that they melted up and out all over Japan.
    But we really won’t know, as NO government is going to tell us truthfully about the incident in its entirety.

    Obama says crap like “if we could just save one child” regarding the gun issue, while at the same time claiming he needs to spent trillions to save our cooling planet from global warming.

    Meanwhile he ignores the nuclear death pouring into the pacific from Fukushima.

    Where’s the international effort, the international agreement, the international cooperation.

    Obama is a complete fraud!

    It’s clear he has a long term agenda that saves no children and cares less for the planet.

    Nope, nothing to do with it at all, citizen! Are you crazy or something? Now, football is on, so get some snacks, a few beers and plop down in front of the TV and cheer on your home team! Bread and circuses are what REALLY matter, like duh!

    Fukushima is a hoax to further along the green agenda, the California drought, and Monsanto’s disaster-proof GMO seeds. They’re probably upping the cancer rates in Japanese children synthetically and blaming Fukushima. Money, money, money, moneeeeey! (MONEY!)
