– WSJ: Huge spike in dogs biting humans in Fukushima town; Some attacked without aggression, 70% to upper body — Study: May be associated with nuclear disaster — Gundersen: Research on animal defects hidden from public (VIDEO) (ENENews, Oct 1, 2013):
Wall St. Journal, Sept. 30, 2013: The Japanese study found that the number of dog bites was almost 30 times as great in one small city in the weeks following the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster as in the previous year. […] About 70% of bites were to the upper body. […] A number of dogs attacked people without displaying any signs of aggression, the study found. This behavior may be due to hormonal changes or mental stress caused by intermittent aftershocks, researchers said. […] It isn’t known if dog bites were related to radiation exposure.
Increased incidence of dog-bite injuries after the Fukushima nuclear accident, October 2013: […] The Fukushima nuclear accident may be associated with an increased incidence of dog bites, and the prolonged evacuation in response to the radiation contamination may have prolonged the increased incidence after the disaster. Physicians and local residents should recognize this potential hazard. Countermeasures to contend with this risk should be a mandatory aspect of disaster preparedness, including for nuclear accidents.
Fairewinds Chief Engineer Arnie Gundersen, Oct. 1, 2013 (At 5:15 in): The problem right now is that Japanese researchers are afraid to tell the truth. […] We’ve got researchers talking about defects in animals and they’re not allowed to publish their data.
