“Cases of thyroid cancer among children living close to the Fukushima nuclear power plant have increased fiftyfold since 2011, four Japanese researchers said Tuesday in a report.Since the meltdown in March 2011, annual thyroid cancer rates in Fukushima Prefecture have been 20 to 50 times the national level, said a team led by professor of environmental epidemiology at Okayama University Toshihide Tsuda.
The findings were based on screenings of around 370,000 Fukushima residents aged 18 or younger at the time of the accident. The study said the increase “is unlikely to be explained by a screening surge.” The researchers point to radiation exposure as a possible factor in the increase in thyroid cancer cases.
The Fukushima Prefecture Government identified 104 thyroid cancer cases as of late August.
An area extending about 20 kilometers from the nuclear plant has been declared an exclusion zone.
The government and some experts question the relation between these cases of thyroid cancer and the radioactive iodine released during the Fukushima disaster because they say the amount was smaller than the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear accident.”

“According to specialists, the volume of contaminated liquid that is leaking into the ocean is increasing by 400 tons daily” (Tass, 2014)
There are those of us in more distant parts of the planet (from Fukushima) who have perhaps swallowed the mainstream media’s spin on this … well in fact … the mainstream media have been telling us since not too long after the disastrous earthquake/tsunami and Fukushima incident that ‘everything’s fine’. Some would prefer not to know I feel … some just do not want to read the evidence but it is there. It’s been well covered by those who take the job of investigative journalism seriously. Who take truth seriously and refuse to publish lies. These are as rare as hen’s teeth now. You’re encouraged to research this further for yourself. A couple of years ago thecontrail.com published a chart (here reproduced with link to source) that revealed higher than danger levels in the South Island. Remember, radioactive water is being discharged daily into the Pacific Ocean … those ocean currents circle the globe. Ultimately none of us can escape this deadly stream.

Those who do research this I’ve read … their results are neither welcomed nor received by the mainstream media … and they are quietly spreading the word via the options available (Youtube, Truth sites and so on) in attempts to warn us to be forearmed in terms of protection. These people have my greatest admiration. Thank you to you all for caring enough about truth to warn those who will listen.
