I heard this conversation of junior high school girls today..
“How was the result of your ultrasound test for your thyroid ?”
”It was A-1 (No problem) !”
“I envy you, I got A-2 (having thyroid nodules (≦5.0mm) or cysts (≦20.0mm), but they don’t tell the number of nodules or cysts they found).”
“Me too ! We are going to have thyroid cancer right ? but still it’s better than A-3.. My mom was saying, we can’t help it..
I felt sorry for making them have such a conversation.

J’ai entendu cette conversation entre des écolières de junior high school girls aujourd’hui…
“Ça a dit quoi, tes examens aux ultrasons sur ta thyroïde ?”
”C’était A-1 (No problem) !”
“Je t’envie, j’ai eu A-2 (nodules thyroïdiens (≦5,0 mm) ou kystes (≦20,0 mm) mais ils ne disent pas le nombre de nodules et de kystes qu’ils ont trouvent).”
“Moi aussi ! On va avoir un cancer de la thyroïde, hein ? mais c’est toujours mieux que A-3.. Ma maman disait qu’on y peut rien…
Je me suis senti désolée de leur avoir fait avoir une pareille conversation.

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.
