Honda turned out to have alopecia areata in 2014 FIFA World Cup game of 6/15/2014.

It was Japan VS Republic of Ivory Coast and Japan lost for 1 : 2.


The right side of his head was found losing hair. None of the details were announced.


Probably these are irrelevant but Fukushima Diary notes additional small information.


A Japanese female idol, Tashiro Sayaka commented on Twitter like this below.

“Today I lost a lot of hair in shampoo.”


It was also posted on a Japanese forum, “I’m a high school female student but I’m becoming bald for some reason” (Picture below).

Le footballeur japonais Honda fait une pelade pendant la coupe du monde 2014 de la FIFA


Suivi de l’article :

Honda Keisuke (27 ans), un footballeur japonais qui joue en Série à l’AC club de Milan a une cicatrice d’opération sur son cou. Il joue aussi dans l’équipe nationale de football du Japon en tant qu’attaquant de milieu de terrain.
Il est au camp d’entraînement de la coupe du monde du Brésil. La cicatrice est à environ 10 cm en dessous de la pomme d’adam.
Aucun détail n’en a été donné. Honda déclare seulement “C’est rien”.
Il était allé dans les préfectures de Fukushima et Miyagi en juin 2011 pour réconforter les enfants des régions dévastées par la catastrophe.

Le 15 juin 2014 pendant la coupe du monde 2014 de la FIA, le joueur Honda a fait une alopécie aréata (pelade).
C’était pendant le match Japon – République de Côte d’Ivoire que le Japon a perdu 1 à 2.
Il y avait un trou dans sa chevelure sur le côté droit de sa tête. Aucun détail n’en a été donné.

Ceci est peut-être sans rapport mais le Fukushima Diary note quelques autres petites informations :

Une célèbre femme japonaise, Mme Tashiro Sayaka, a déclaré sur Twitter :

“Aujourd’hui j’ai perdu beaucoup de cheveux pendant mon shampooing.”

Quelqu’un a aussi publié ceci sur un  forum japonais, “Je suis lycéenne mais je deviens chauve.” (Photo ci-dessous).


Vous pouvez lire ceci parce que nous avons survécu jusqu’à aujourd’hui.

      1. It’s just the same joke over and over now. Starting to get a bit boring. Perhaps Iori can come up with something else soon?
        Maybe strange cloud shapes? Chemtrails? Strange mutated substances found in the back of kitchen food closets?

  1. There is some evidence that hair dyes, straighteners, and similar products can cause inflammation of the scalp and result in hair loss.

    1. You mean bad things can happen bacause of other things than Fukushima?

      Are you sure?

      1. Somehow I get the feeling that teenage girls never really suffered from hair loss before 3/11. Most inquisitive people know about the negative effects that commercial hair products can have on the scalp, hair quality, etc.; however, these usually take years, if not decades to manifest themselves to the extent that we see are currently seeing in one of the photos.I say, when we start to see idols getting patchy hair en masse, we know something’s wrong. When the nation’s ‘elite’ that can actually afford to wash their hair in Rich-in-vitamin-D-rare-African-Dodo-eggs and organic honey conditioner starts losing hair; or idols eating prime Kobe beef and only-the-best-organically-farmed-produce showing signs of radiation posioning by bleeding from orifices when it isn;t their time-of-the-month, you can safely state that there’s a bit o’ the ol’ crisis going on. Of course, I hope to God that your own conjecture proves right and that this is some strange, strange nightmare.

        Peace out, homes.

      2. Fukushima radioactive & other contamination can have a toxicity multiplying effect.

      3. Hair loss (in women as well as men) can be due to a range of factors including stress, hormonal imbalances, nutrient deficiencies, hair cosmetics, genetic factors and of course radiation. It can also be caused by thyroid imbalances, which may in turn be the result of radiation poisoning (as they are finding among children in Fukushima). Hair loss was observed among residents affected by the Three Mile Island disaster*. So radiation certainly could be a factor in the case reported here.

        *en wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Mile_Island_accident_health_effects

        1. Humans experience hair loss all the time, you just don’t usually notice or think about it. Isn’t it likely that you’d suddenly start paying extreme attention to hair loss should a nearby nuclear reactor have a meltdown?
          I’m not saying anything about the actual radiation exposures, just that it’s very, very, very likely that there’d be an increase in reports of hair loss, headaches, heart pains, nosebleeds, and bears rolling down hills.

          1. You’ve hit the nail on the head there Niall. I live far from a nuclear reactor. My hair is coming out in clumps, my nose bleeds daily, my muscles are weak, I have a worsening heart condition, there are nodules on my thyroid and I have incipient leukemia, but I never give it a moment’s thought.

      4. I’ve just twigged that the footballer with the hair loss (Honda Keisuke) is the same person as the footballer with the neck scar. So unfortunately some kind of thyroid damage (eg surgical removal) looks increasingly likely.

  2. Gee, let’s take a look at his signs and symptoms and environment.

    He is in the training camp for the World Cup of Brazil. (1) The scar is seen about 10cm below the laryngeal prominence. None of the details are announced. Honda only comments “It is nothing”.

    (2) Hair Loss

    (3) Traveled in Fukushima, Japan during June 2011.

    Hmmmm, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Kildare, begin to see a pattern. What could it be? Ohhh Ohhh – don’t tell us …

    Could it be?

      1. That appears a crude distortion of facts.
        May i respecfully remind you of the HMS Habakkuk? (a ship of FAIL!)

  3. Principle (or law) of Parsimony

    The scientific principle that things are usually connected or behave in the simplest or most economical way, especially with reference to alternative evolutionary pathways. Compare with Occam’s razor. Origin: late Middle English: from Latin parsimonia, parcimonia, from parcere ‘be sparing’.

    Example Sentences

    He is remembered as the father of the medieval principle of parsimony, or economy, that advises anyone confronted with multiple explanations or models of a phenomenon to choose the simplest explanation first.
    Lest they fall into anthropomorphizing, many behaviorists follow the principle of parsimony, often called Occam’s razor, that restricts inferences to the simplest adequate explanation of any particular animal behavior.
    Well it is taken to refer to the principle of parsimony that, from the Latin, ‘it is vain to do with more what can be done with less’, or ‘a plurality of things is not to be posited without necessity’.

    1. Simplest would be some kind of scar on his head. He’s a professional athlete after all, and radiation doesn’t make hair fall out in one exact isolated clump.

      1. Oh yes, “radiation” can.

        Welders can get this as a consequence of leaving skin unprotected. Wonder what “welder’s flash” could be like with more 60Co, etc. in the scrap-metal stream? Also wondering what annual x-ray exposure would be for said welder on various base-metals (depending upon polarity/GMAW/SMAW)???

        1. One aluminum welder i’ve known of is a baldy, and not by choice.

          No respirator, no PPE of any kind whatsoever other than safety boots & leather/cotton garments. He might be “out for a rip” right now!!!

          Have heard of remark in Eastern Canada that BC (other than “bring cash”) is known as the “Wild Wild West” as far as bylaw & Workman’s Compensation enforcement goes (etc).

          Hey, at least he’s one of the guys that actually show up AND leave work sober!

          1. WPPSS (Whoops), I accidentally demoted him.
            He’s a steel/aluminum Fabricator, that means that he cuts/grinds/drills/fits both base metals. Aluminum dust everywhere, sometimes in enclosed spaces.

    2. I’m glad you posted the dictionary definition of parsimony. Maybe now you’ll stop jumping to wild, outlandish theories.

  4. That “alopecia areata” seems kind of similar to the spots on cattle in the following article:

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.
