Japanese physicians link spike in cancer to Fukushima radiation

Japanese physicians link spike in cancer to Fukushima radiation

Cancer rates in many areas of Japan are on the rise following the global catastrophe at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power facility back in March 2011. And some Japanese doctors now caring for all those radiation refugees who were shipped out from areas surrounding the nuclear plant after it exploded say fallout from the disaster is likely to blame for this massive uptick in disease.

U.S. Nuclear Agency Hid Concerns, Hailed Safety Record as Fukushima Melted

U.S. Nuclear Agency Hid Concerns, Hailed Safety Record as Fukushima Melted

In the tense days after a powerful earthquake and tsunami crippled the Fukushima Daiichi power plant in Japan on March 11, 2011, staff at the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission made a concerted effort to play down the risk of earthquakes and tsunamis to America’s aging nuclear plants, according to thousands of internal emails reviewed by NBC News. The emails, obtained via the Freedom of Information Act, show that the campaign to reassure the public about America’s nuclear industry came as the agency’s own experts were questioning U.S. safety standards and scrambling to determine whether new rules were needed to ensure that the meltdown occurring at the Japanese plant could not occur here.

TEPCO Admits Fukushima Radiation “Significantly” Undercounted

TEPCO Admits Fukushima Radiation Significantly Undercounted

From April to September of 2013, as Bloomberg reports, TEPCO admits that levels of radiation measured from water samples around the destroyed Fukushima nuclear reactor were "significantly undercounted." We assume it was mere coincidence that during this very time Shinzo Abe proclaimed the 2020 Olympics would be safe and used many of these readings as evidence. In addition to this debacle, The BBC reports, the likely scale of the radioactive plume of water from Fukushima due to hit the west coast of North America should be known in the next two months; and rather stunningly, The Japan Times reports a new study finds the lifetime risk of developing cancer has risen among 1-year-old girls in an area affected by the nuclear crisis at the Fukushima No. 1 power plant. But apart from that, everything's great. Read More »

US Govt Knows Fukushima Is A Worldwide Disaster

US Govt Knows Fukushima Is A Worldwide Disaster

olumnist Annette Sommers, Feb. 25, 2014: In a few months, the devastating effects of the Fukushima nuclear disaster will officially taint America’s reputation. [...] Of course, all this information is just now circulating through the media because it’s finally a time-sensitive threat. Read More »

Fukushima Is Here! Contamination Found Off Vancouver Coast

Fukushima Is Here! Contamination Found Off Vancouver Coast

Scientists from the Bedford Institute of Oceanography have found levels of cesium in sea water off the Vancouver Canada coast that can be attributed to the Fukushima nuclear disaster. They levels are low, but the presence of cesium 134 confirms the contamination to be from Fukushima Daiichi. They cited the levels as such: Read More »

New Study – ‘Most’ Fukushima Ocean Radiation To Hit US Soon

New Study - 'Most' Fukushima Ocean Radiation To Hit US Soon

A study of transport and impact strength of Fukushima nuclear pollutants in the North Pacific surface’. Based on the statistics of surface drifter data of 1979–2011 and the simulation of nuclear pollutant particulate movements simulated using high quality ocean reanalysis surface current dataset, the transport pathways and impact strength of Fukushima nuclear pollutants in the North Pacific have been estimated Read More »

The Horrible Truth About Fukushima — Helen Caldicott, MD

The Horrible Truth About Fukushima — Helen Caldicott, MD

Author and Pediatrician Helen Caldicott takes time out of her busy schedule to join me to discuss the unfolding events at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station in Japan. Fukushima was devastated by a massive earthquake on March 11, 2011 which led directly to a massive failure causing hydrogen explosions which blew the roof off of at least two of the reactor buildings. Tepco and the Japanese government have understated the radiation dangers and the dire reality of the situation from day one. Read More »

Scientists Confirm Fukushima Radiation in California Kelp

Scientists Confirm Fukushima Radiation in California Kelp

Scientists analyzing kelp off the coast of San Diego confirmed the presence of cesium this week, a radioactive isotope directly linked to the Fukushima Daiichi power plant. Part of the ongoing “Kelp Watch 2014″ project, government and academic institutions have begun receiving results from samples of Bull Kelp and Giant Kelp collected along the California coast. Despite attempts by the media to downplay the ongoing disaster, the discovery has only confirmed the continued build up of radiation in West Coast waters. Read More »

Leading Scientist On Fukushima Radiation Hitting West Coast of North America: “No One Is Measuring So Therefore We Should Be Alarmed”

Leading Scientist On Fukushima Radiation Hitting West Coast of North America “No One Is Measuring So Therefore We Should Be Alarmed”

Federal, State and Local Governments Refuse to Test for Radiation on the West Coast of North America Numerous models show that – while the ocean dilutes radiation – pockets and streams of concentrated radiation may still hit the West Coast of North America. West Coast residents are very concerned. Indeed, many local and state government officials have said that residents are inundating them with questions about Fukushima radiation. Read More »

MSM Ignores Models Showing Radiation Hitting West Coast

MSM Ignores Models Showing Radiation Hitting West Coast

Without actual things to worry about, too many people these days are making up or exaggerating risks. Our recent story on the Fukushima Disaster is a good example. That was a terrible event, but what illness of the mind must people have to lie about the threat to B.C., even going so far as the misrepresent a wave-height map of the Pacific to pretend it shows that dangerous radiation is flowing to our shores?
