Yukiko Kameya, Fukushima nuclear refugee: There are 59 children with thyroid problems and there are hundreds more on the way […]

Futaba where I lived is not livable, and the government says so. I know we are never going back in my entire life. But for the Fukushima Prefecture, it still not safe. The radiation level’s still very high […]

[Govt officials] ignore all the problems we’re having. There are many young people between 15 and 19 in Fukushima who are in high school who have died suddenly. For example, this morning I saw an online story that a 17-year-old died from Leukemia. In the morning when his mother came to wake him up, he was found dead in bed. Everyone says this was caused by the radiation levels from the nuclear accident. But our government never recognized it — and there are 59 children with thyroid cancer, they’ll never recognize it as being caused by the radiation.

Katsutaka Idogawa, Futaba’s mayor during 3/11, the town where part of Fukushima Daiichi is located: Another huge issue is those who are forced to live within the greater Fukushima areas do not have access to full health measurement, health treatment, and the kind of support they need. They’re also told that any diseases or sickness that they have is not caused by radiation.

  1. This tells me the danger is far more reaching than admitted by the jerks in power at TEPCO. I read an article by Arnie Gunderson who states radiation is all over the planet now and how it will get worse…..like gamma rays, it is everywhere and expanding.
    Here in CA, we have experienced the hottest driest year in history……or at least since 1849 when gold was discovered at Sutter’s Mill. This is year three of an endless drought, as it is year three of the Fukushima disaster.
    The food chain has been irrevocably destroyed, the Pacific Ocean is dying, and soon, CA will be a place where no human can live.
    Corporations have destroyed our way of living for all time. I hope if some humans survive the horror that is being unleashed upon us, that they will recognize how wrong it is to let corporations run nations.
    Gulf of Mexico is dead thanks to BP Oil
    Pacific Ocean is dying thanks to TEPCO
    Food chain has been broken thanks to TEPCO
    Japan is the perfect example of why corporations and government should never mix.
    I never thought I would see why civilizations vanish overnight……but what is happening now is a damn good indicator.
    Being cooked to death isn’t a good way to die.
