Thyroid abnormality rate is 13.3% in Miyagi, “Too good” compared to the 57% of other 3 prefectures
According to Marumori town in Miyagi prefecture, they detected nodules or cysts of thyroid from 13.3 % of children from their thyroid test.
The test was conducted from 3. 2012 to 1. 2013, testees were under 18 years old when 311 took place.
Among 1,982 testees, they detected cysts from 259 but these are not supposed to require a follow-up test. They detected nodules from 5, which require a follow-up test.
However, in Nagasaki, Aomori and Yamanashi prefecture, they detected nodules and cysts from 57% of the children by the same thyroid test. (cf, Thyroid nodule and cyst found from 57% of children outside of Fukushima, MOE “Higher than Fukushima” [URL])
It is hard to explain where this huge gap (13.3% vs 57%) of the thyroid test result is from unless the test was implemented unfairly.

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
