On 9/11/2012, Fukushima local government announced they found unignorable thyroid nodules from 60 of children to need a follow-up test, and they found thyroid cancer from one of them.
Prof. Suzuki from Fukushima medical university comments, Chernobyl leaked more radiation than Fukushima, but it took 4 years before they started having cancer at least. It is hard to think this case of thyroid cancer has something to do with Fukushima accident.
Le 11 septembre 2012, les autorités de Fukushima ont annoncé qu’ils ont trouvé des nodules thyroïdiens manifestes sur 60 des enfants, nodules demandant un examen complémentaire, et l’un d’eux s’est révélé être un cancer.
Le Pr. Suzuki de l’université médicale de Fukushima en dit que “Tchernobyl a relâché plus de radioactivité que Fukushima mais il a fallu au moins 4 ans avant que les cancers se déclarent. Il est difficile de croire que ce cas de cancer ait un lien avec l’accident de Fukushima.”
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.
