Breaking News: They detected radioactive Iodine from the thyroid of half of the Fukushima children

Today,Dr.Tashiro from Hiroshima university published the data to show about half of the children in Fukushima have their thyroid exposed to radioactive Iodine.

They tested 1149 children in Fukushima ,and they detected radioactive Iodine from about half of the sample.

Dr.Tashio said,they may have thyroid cancer if they are internally exposed to more than 100mSv.

but in the data,even the highest level is only 35mSv,so it is hard to assume they will have a thyroid cancer.

However,they will continue monitoring the children.

However again,I personally have a couple of the questions.

1) What is the basis of “100mSv”

2) From their historical deception,it is highly likely that actual data is even worse than that.

3) Why don’t they let the children evacuate right now.

4) Half life time of Iodine is about 8 days. I wonder why they still detect Iodine.(sorry,I’m amateur.)

5) Why did they delete all the thyroid test data from the website of Nuclear Safety Commission.

Maybe I don’t need to watch the movie “Chernobyl heart”,because I am actually seeing it going on.

About this site

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.
