The struggles of Fukushima continue with thyroid cancer on the increase in children

In the first news post some blog news on Fukushima where it is alleged workers at Fukushima are sick and that “hundreds of workers have died” as a result of radiation contamination. I have the tendency to accept this news at face value considering that thyroid cancer is on the increase in children which the second news article discusses.

March 18, 2016 by arclight2011part2

The First male Daichi nuclear site worker had an official total dose of 50mSv.

“I suffered damages to kidneys, heart, etc. — all important organs in my body.”

The second male Daichi nuclear site worker had an official total dose of 56mSv. He said

“I went to such a severe accident site and worked at the risk of my life, but all I’ve got was this cruel reality and treatment!”

I suffered thyroid damage, and had all my stomach removed.

The third male Daichi nuclear site worker had an official total dose of just 19.2mSv.
He was diagnosed as having acute myelogenous leukemia.

My doctor said that “70% of the cells in your bone marrow were occupied by cancer. Without any treatment, you will die for sure.”

Last week marked the fifth anniversary of the disaster at the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant which was triggered by a massive earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan five years ago.

The catastrophe left deep scars amongst Japanese people and there are fears that echoes of the tragedy will be heard for decades or maybe even for a hundred of years to come, as the terrible consequences are becoming clearer now.

Hideyuki Ban, representative of the Japanese Information Center for Nuclear Energy, spoke to Sputnik in an interview talking about how profound the damage of nuclear radiation has been to the people, their lives and health.
