[Breaking] Another Fukushima child got possible thyroid cancer

Kyodo reported Fukushima local government admitted another Fukushima child needs a prompt second inspection for the possible thyroid cancer.
It was revealed from the thyroid test for 360,000 of under 18s conducted by Fukushima local government.

Fukushima medical university comments, they took longer than 4 years to find increasing thyroid cases in Chernobyl. This case has no strong connection with Fukushima accident, but they will proceed blood and cell analysis to confirm if it’s really a cancer.

[Ultime notizie] Un altro bambino di Fukushima ha contratto probabilmente un cancro alla tiroide

Kyodo ha riportato che il governo locale di Fukushima ha ammesso che un altro bambino di Fukushima necessita di un’urgente ispezione ulteriore per un possibile cancro alla tiroide.
E’ stato rivelato dal test alla tiroide eseguito dal governo locale di Fukushima a 360,000 minori di 18 anni.

L’università medica di Fukushima ha dichiarato che ci sono voluti più di 4 anni per trovare aumenti rilevanti nei casi di problemi alla tiroide a Chernobyl. Questo non ha una forte connessione con il problema di Fukushima, ma procederanno nelle analisi del sangue per confermare che si tratti di cancro.

[Breaking] Un autre enfant de Fukushima a sans doute un cancer de la thyroïde

Kyodo a rapporté que les autorités de Fukushima ont admit qu’un autre enfant de Fukushima a rapidement besoin d’un second examen pour vérifier un possible cancer de la thyroïde.
Il a été révélé par les examens thyroïdiens effectués sur 360 000 mineurs par les autorités locales de Fukushima.

L’université médicale de Fukushima dit qu’il leur a fallu plus de 4 ans avant de pouvoir constater que le nombre de cas de cancers de la thyroïde commence à augmenter à Tchernobyl. Ce cas-ci n’a pas un lien très fort avec l’accident de Fukushima mais ils vont procéder à des biopsies pour pouvoir confirmer s’il s’agit d’un cancer ou non.

  1. I would only say,and give the advice,for those Japanese people there,don’t dump poluted cooling water and or waste in the ocean,supervise that,u need the ionized jodine/jodide from that ocean to stay healthy cq prevent getting cancer…..since there is a greater amount of that specific element in that form in the ocean then in the artificial menmade kitchensalt…i should oversee the consequences of that simple get rid of it behaviour….

  2. How can Abe and the LDP event THINK about restarting nuclear reactors!?

    Vote carefully Japan. The health and lives of your children are at stake. Japan politicians especially should understand by now the harm that nuclear power causes. Any Japan politician who vows to restart reactors is a sociopath and should never be elected to govern.

  3. “This case has no strong connection with Fukushima accident”
    Oh, please.
    With all the reports of children getting seriously sick with cafeteria-meals, how could such statement be either formulated or believed.

  4. Did the medical experts at Fukushima University Hospital also take into account that the one-off burst from Chenobyl was followed by a mass evacuation, and a ban on eating contaminated food and water, whereas, Fukushima Daiichi is ongoing, people are being told to move back to contaminated areas, and the government and JA are aggressively encouraging Japanese citizens to consume irradiated foodstuffs?
    Maybe that could be a clue as to why there is a predictable early presentation of symptoms…

  5. “…This case has no strong connection with Fukushima accident…”
    it is neither a weak or a strong connection, Fukushima is the only cause for thyroid cancers in Japan. This university hospital is now taking the active reponsibility to kill people by lying to them bluntly about health issues related to catastrophic Fukushima nuclear incident.

  6. The worry for parents is terrible, I hope your efforts to make the Government provide excellent health care for everyone affected by the tsunami and radiation are successful.

  7. Hello to all.
    The following post in a Japanese blog has recently come to my attention, although it is from last july:

    This is someone claiming to have worked in a (presumably small) maternity clinic at an undisclosed location in Fukushima pref. It says that in regular checks on a small group of pregnant women, an alarmingly high number of fetus abnormalities was found.
    I tried to search if Fukushima Diary had reported this earlier, but could not find it.
    I would be grateful for any comment from anyone with a better understanding of Japanese.

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.
