Fukushima local newspaper “Nosebleed in Fukushima prefecture has nothing to do with radiation”


One of the major Fukushima newspapers reported that Fukushima citizens cannot have nosebleed due to the radioactive contamination.


It was “Fukushima Minpo”. They referred to Professor. Takamura from Nagasaki University (The picture above).


In the contributed article, Takamura commented that people can have unstoppable nosebleed when exposed to over 500 mGy (=500 mSv) at once, however Fukushima citizens haven’t had such exposure dose since 311.

He concluded, “It cannot be related to radiation exposure that Fukushima citizens have nosebleed. There are variety of reasons to have nosebleed.”.





You read this now because we’ve been surviving until today.

Un journal local de Fukushima : “Dans la préfecture de Fukushima les saignements de nez n’ont aucun rapport avec la radioactivité”


Un des plus grands journaux de Fukushima a rapporté que les habitants de Fukushima ne peuvent pas avoir de saignements de nez à cause de la contamination radioactive.

C’était dans le “Fukushima Minpo”. Ils se réfèrent au Professeur Takamura de l’université de Nagasaki (photo ci-dessus).

Dans son article, le Pr Takamura déclare que les gens peuvent avoir des saignements de nez graves lorsqu’ils  sont exposés à une dose unique de plus de 500 mGy (=500 mSv), néanmoins, les habitants de Fukushima ne sont pas soumis à une telle exposition depuis le 11-3.
Il conclus en disant : “Il est impossible de lier les saignements de nez des habitants de Fukushima à leur exposition à la radioactivité. Il existe de nombreuses raisons provoquant des saignements de nez”.

  1. Nosebleed: Symptoms of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia

    http www rrjournal org/ (doi/pdf/10.1667/RR13351.1)

    Many people don’t have any symptoms and CLL is only picked up when they have a blood test for something else. If you do have symptoms, they may include:

    feeling very tired and breathless
    swollen lymph nodes (glands in your neck, groin and under your arms)
    fever and sweating at night
    weight loss
    pain or discomfort in your abdomen (tummy)
    increased bruising or unusual bleeding, such as frequent nosebleeds
    frequent infections, which take longer to recover from

    Binet stage C: At this stage, as well as having three or more groups of lymph nodes that are affected and a high number of lymphocytes, you will also have a low level of red blood cells (anaemia) or platelets (thrombocytopenia), or both. It’s possible that your lymph nodes and spleen may be swollen and you’re more likely to have other symptoms, for example, weight loss, tiredness and unusual bleeding such as nosebleeds.

    Transformation: Sometimes, CLL can change (transform) into a lymphoma (cancer of your lymphatic system) called Richter’s syndrome. This happens in about five in 100 people with advanced CLL.

  2. CLL linked to radon exposure

    Rericha, V., Kulich, M., Rericha, R., Shore, D.L. & Sandler, D.P. (2006) Incidence of leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma in Czech uranium miners: a case-cohort study. Environmental Health Perspectives, 114, 818–822. http www ncbi nlm nih gov/ (pubmed/16759978)


    Incidence of all leukemia combined and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) alone was positively associated with cumulative radon exposure. The RR comparing high radon exposure [110 working level months (WLM) ; 80th percentile] to low radon exposure (3 WLM ; 20th percentile) was 1.75 [95% confidence interval (CI) , 1.10-2.78 ; p = 0.014] for all leukemia combined and 1.98 (95% CI, 1.10-3.59 ; p = 0.016) for CLL. Myeloid leukemia and Hodgkin lymphoma were also associated with radon, but RRs were not statistically significant. There was no apparent association of radon with either non-Hodgkin lymphoma or multiple myeloma. Exposure to radon and its progeny was associated with an increased risk of developing leukemia in underground uranium miners. CLL, not previously believed to be radiogenic, was linked to radon exposure.

  3. The dumbest Fukushima Statement Collection: “Fukushima passed the test”

    The Panic Over Fukushima, By Richard Muller, Updated Aug. 18, 2012 11:05 p.m. ET, http online wsj com/ (news/articles/SB10000872396390444772404577589270444059332)

    Looking back more than a year after the event, it is clear that the Fukushima reactor complex, though nowhere close to state-of-the-art, was adequately designed to contain radiation. New reactors can be made even safer, of course, but the bottom line is that Fukushima passed the test.

    —Dr. Muller is a professor of physics at the University of California, Berkeley. This essay is adapted from his new book, “Energy for Future Presidents: The Science Behind the Headlines.”

  4. More STUPID Statements:

    Townhall, Columnists, Ann Coulter, A Glowing Report on Radiation, Mar 16, 2011, http townhall com/ (columnists/anncoulter/2011/03/16/a_glowing_report_on_radiation/page/full)

    “the only good news is that anyone exposed to excess radiation from the nuclear power plants is now probably much less likely to get cancer.”

    Tom Bethell, author of the “Politically Incorrect Guide to Science,” has been writing for years about the beneficial effects of some radiation, or “hormesis.” A few years ago, he reported on a group of scientists who concluded their conference on hormesis at the University of Massachusetts by repairing to a spa in Boulder, Mont., specifically in order to expose themselves to excess radiation.

    At the Free Enterprise Radon Health Mine in Boulder, people pay $5 to descend 85 feet into an old mining pit to be irradiated with more than 400 times the EPA-recommended level of radon. In the summer, 50 people a day visit the mine hoping for relief from chronic pain and autoimmune disorders.

    1. Professor Noboru Takamura is too conservative in his conclusions. According to Nonprofessor Tom Bethell, the citizens of Fukushima are getting nosebleeds because they are not being exposed to enough radiation.

      1. APPRENTICE CrackHO

        Saturday Night Live had this skit, best to worst jobs in the economy. Best Job was Bill Gates CEO Microsoft, Worst job crackho. Then one year the worst job was APPRENTICE CrackHO.

        Soon to be full-fledged CrackHO, I suppose.

  5. Nuclear Lies and Gross Stupidity

    The lies of Dr. Brainwasher (Shunichi Yamashita) are infamous in Japan, and are increasingly, and openly ridiculed in the USA.

    Natural News exclusive: Fukushima victim exposes Japanese government’s attempted bizarre brainwashing of radiation victims

    This blogspot website has located and translated several key brainwashing phrases uttered by Dr. Yamashita as part of the Japanese government’s propaganda campaign. The following statements span several online videos featuring “Dr. Brainwasher.” Each of these statements is a total propaganda fabrication. The comments in ALL CAPS are my own:

    • “To tell you the truth, radiation doesn’t affect people who are smiling. Only those who are worried. This has clearly been demonstrated by animal studies.” (HUH? WHAH?)

    • “Laughter will remove your radiation phobia.” (COOL, ‘CUZ I’M LAUGHING ALREADY!)

    • “If you laugh, radiation won’t get you.” (NOW I CAN SAFELY WORK AT A MAMMOGRAPHY CLINIC!)

    • “Internal exposure has 10 times less health risk than external exposure.” (SO IF I EAT URANIUM, IT’S SAFER THAN USING IT AS A SKIN WHITENING CREAM?)

    • “Children can play outdoors.” (AS LONG AS YOU DON’T MIND THEM DYING)

    • “I can tell you this, the health effects [of Fukushima radiation exposure] are minimal.” (TO COCKROACHES)

    • “We don’t have to worry about the health effects of ordinary people.” (BECAUSE WE DON’T REALLY CARE IF ORDINARY PEOPLE DIE ANYWAY)

  6. Perhaps the most stupid statements in human history

    Watch the Japanese propaganda video that promises radiation won’t harm you if you just “laugh”. It is a video of Dr. Shunichi Yamashita — now known as “Dr. Brainwasher” — giving a propaganda lecture on March 21, 2011 in Fukushima City.

  10. Shill Suspect List

    Certainly, no global ‘Team Nuke’ shill suspect list is complete without:

  11. Scientific Integrity

    Agenda Based Science is as wrong-headed as the Spanish Inquisition. Several fields of endeavor have been completely compromised by ‘Data Diddling’.

    Team Nuke is probably foremost on the list of ‘Data Diddlers’.

    The Global Warming hoax is approximately #2.

    Diversity and the ‘Open Society’ is around #3.

    The ‘Sustained Development’ Agenda has rapidly moved up the list to #4.

    The Health Sciences are collapsing under the weight of Agenda Based ‘Science’.

    It will require a LOT of time & effort to restore scientific integrity, to the system. For we are present, in the former realms of science, absent integrity.

  12. Always a STRONG contender, in the radiation bullshit category


    Good morning, Mr. Chairmen, ranking Members, and Members of the Subcommittee. I am pleased to discuss the possible health implications of radiation from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident in Japan. … My remarks will cover five areas:

    1) Fukushima is not Chernobyl.
    2) The health consequences for Japanese workers and public appear to be minor.
    3) The health consequences for United States citizens are negligible to nonexistent.
    4) Blah Blah
    5) Blah Blah Blah

    And testiLYING B4 one of the larger assemblages of liars in human history.

  13. Japan Comic Book Nosebleeds

    Since Japan Law muzzles free discussion, comic book characters discuss their radiation symptoms.

    Life at Fukushima No. 1 gets manga treatment

    Tatsuta said “1F” is not about taking sides in the debate over nuclear power, but simply a story of what it’s like to work there. “I just want to keep a record for history. I want to record what life was like, what I experienced,” he said in his studio outside Tokyo this week. Tatsuta is a pen name. The 49-year-old artist asked that his real name not be used for fear of being barred from working at the No. 1 plant in the future. After Tatsuta had to quit when his radiation exposure neared the annual legal limit of 20 millisieverts, he decided to put down what he had undergone in manga.

  14. Similar to Homer Simpson (OTJ @ the Nuclear Power Plant)

    National by Tomohiro Osaki, Staff Writer Apr 30, 2014, – www japantimes co jp/ (news/2014/04/30/national/manga-about-work-at-fukushima-no-1-stirs-locals-ire/#.U2foSWfj58E)

    Manga about work at Fukushima No. 1 stirs locals’ ire

    When contacted by The Japan Times, the editorial department of Shogakukan was unapologetic. Speaking on condition of anonymity, the weekly’s managing editor said the publisher had been inundated with phone calls and emails from readers saying the descriptions risk arousing public prejudice against the prefecture.

    The editor said the episode drew on “meticulous reportage” conducted by manga author Tetsu Kariya and his team in Fukushima. Nothing the Idogawa character said deviated from the opinion of the real-life mayor, the editor insisted. Kariya himself once told the media that he had suffered several bouts of nosebleeds and been plagued by unusual fatigue following his visits to the plant.

    Visiting the stricken plant two years after the 2011 nuclear catastrophe, a group of characters, all newspaper journalists, are momentarily exposed to hourly radiation levels of 1,680 microsieverts. After their tour, which takes them near the plant’s six reactors, lead character Shiro Yamaoka begins to complain of “extreme exhaustion” as well as sudden nosebleeds that span days. His colleagues confess to suffering similar symptoms. Later, when they meet a character named Katsutaka Idogawa — based on a real-life former mayor of the town of Futaba in Fukushima Prefecture — they learn that he too has suffered repeated nosebleed attacks and felt “unbearably sick” since the accident. “Many Fukushima residents have been afflicted by the same symptoms. It’s just they don’t say it openly,” Idogawa tells them.

    The Questionable Link Between Saturated Fat and Heart Disease

    Are butter, cheese and steak really bad for you? The dubious science behind the anti-fat crusade

    “Saturated fat does not cause heart disease” — or so concluded a big study published in March in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine. How could this be? The very cornerstone of dietary advice for generations has been that the saturated fats in butter, cheese and red meat should be avoided because they clog our arteries. For many diet-conscious Americans, it is simply second nature to opt for chicken over sirloin, canola oil over butter.

    The new study’s conclusion shouldn’t surprise anyone familiar with modern nutritional science, however. The fact is, there has never been solid evidence for the idea that these fats cause disease. We only believe this to be the case because nutrition policy has been derailed over the past half-century by a mixture of personal ambition, bad science, politics and bias.

  18. Fukushima disaster radionuclides found in US waters – Pacific Albacore

    Neville DR1, Phillips AJ, Brodeur RD, Higley KA.. Environ Sci Technol. 2014 May 6;48(9):4739-43. doi: 10.1021/es500129b. Epub 2014 Apr 24. http www ncbi nlm ni .gov/ (pubmed/24717105)

    Abstract: The Fukushima Daiichi power station released several radionuclides into the Pacific following the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami. A total of 26 Pacific albacore (Thunnus alalunga) caught off the Pacific Northwest U.S. coast between 2008 and 2012 were analyzed for (137)Cs and Fukushima-attributed (134)Cs. Both 2011 (2 of 2) and several 2012 (10 of 17) edible tissue samples exhibited increased activity concentrations of (137)Cs (234-824 mBq/kg of wet weight) and (134)Cs (18.2-356 mBq/kg of wet weight).

  19. Specific Activity and the Banana Lie

    Steven Starr Steven Starr, scientific program director of the clinical laboratory at the University of Columbia, Missouri. Video: http www totalwebcasting com/ (view/?id=hcf#>), http www radical org/ (radiation/Fukushima/StevenStarr) pdf http www radical org/ (radiation/Fukushima/StevenStarr) html French Subtitles: http kna-blog (blogspot) fr/

    Sometimes these man-made radionuclides are compared to naturally occurring radionuclides, such as Potassium-40, which is always found in bananas and other fruits. However this is a false comparison since naturally occurring radioactive elements are very weakly radioactive. In the lab chart the radioactivity is described as the “specific activity”. Note that Potassium-40 has a specific activity of 71 ten millionths of a Curie per gram. Compare that to the 88 Curies per gram for Cesium-137. This is like comparing a stick of dynamite to an atomic bomb.

    Highly-radioactive fission products such as Cesium-137 and Strontium-90 emit 10 to 20 million times more radiation per unit volume than does Potassium-40. So which one of these would you rather have in your bananas? Cs-137 10 million times more radioactive than Potassium-40

    Don’t let ‘Team Nuke’ take you for an airplane ride on the Flying Banana.

    1. The banana comparison is unfortunate because of homeostasis. The human body maintains a constant amount of potassium so any extra you eat is matched by the same amount being excreted. So eating a banana doesn’t increase your yearly dose.

      Your dose from potassium in the body is 170 microSv/year.

      To get the same dose from Cesium you would need to eat 170 microSV/year / 1.8e-2 microSv/Bq = 9400 Bq/year or about 25 Bq/day.

      Hard to do if you’re eating fish with 1 Bq/kg. Most people can’t eat 25kg of fish per day every day.

      So how dangerous is the potassium in your body? Remember … there is no safe level of radiation. The Linear No Threshold model says that any exposure increases your risk of cancer by 5.5% for every Sv of exposure.

      So every year a person’s risk of dying from cancer from the radiation they get from the potassium in their body goes up by 170 microSv * 5.5%/Sv = 0.000935%.

      A person’s lifetime risk of dying of cancer from all sources is 20%. Given the 70 year average lifespan 0.065% of that risk comes from the potassium in your body and 19.935% comes from ‘other’.

      Since there are 7billion people in the world that is 65,000 cancer deaths per year from naturally occurring potassium.

      Now the airplane comparison on the other hand is perfectly valid. The increase in cosmic rays at altitude give one a dose of about 5 microSv/hour. So a transoceanic round trip adds about 100 microSv to your exposure.

      1. Math and Model Errors aplenty

        Radioactive Contamination with Radioactive Cesium tends to concentrate damages in Cardiac Tissues, rather than whole body distribution. These result in heart attack, congestive heart failure, electrochemical cardiac conduction difficulties, arrhythmias, pain and death.

        Cardiac muscle and conduction fiber damages are permanent and cumulative. First radiocesium cardiac damages for USA population began about 03/17/2011 through about 04/10/2014, with the Jet Stream delivery to the USA. The 2nd round of radio-cesium damages in the USA were surface wind-borne and arrived later in the Spring.

        The early cumulative damages from airborne Fukushima radioactive fallout resulted in on the order of 20,000 USA excess deaths, of various diagnoses, from all radioisotopes, in 2011, according to Mangano, Sherman et al.

        The seafood dose, and sea-air transfer radiocesium, radiostrontium and increased tritium levels will add to the damages already underway.

        The radiocesium, radiostrontium and tritiated water contamination levels along the USA Pacific Coastlines will steadily increase over the next 5 years. So also will the cumulative & permanent cardiac damages.

        Many math model errors and mounting death tolls

        1. Now, now Bill.

          You don’t get to make up your own health effects of Cesium.

          And Mangano and Sherman could teach courses in data-diddling. Everything they’ve ever done has been debunked.

          1. The Russian Academies of Sciences published the Cesium Heart Effects. They were translated to English and published in the American Academies of Sciences for review and comment.

            Oh and absolutely not one gawdamn thing of Mangano and/or Sherman has been discredited, except in the SHILL World of fantasy.

            Statistical reviews of Public Health Data are difficult to objectively attack. Perpetual personal attacks are about all that ‘Team Nuke’ can manage. Such attacks are as bogus as the rest of the ‘Team Nuke’ fantasy world.


            Bill Duff

        2. 20,000 deaths in the US? I’ll be adding that to my collection of Mr Bill Duff quotes, right alongside Hitlers testicles.

  20. Trolls and Shills can gripe about it, all they wish. However, the plausibility of the Slavic Language studies, are widely accepted.

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.
