Fukushima medical university states variety of diseases increasing in disaster area of Fukushima

Epidemiology professor, Ohira from Fukushima medical university stated variety of diseases are increasing in the former evacuation zone of Fukushima.

It’s 13 municipal areas. Prof. Ohira stated in the symposium held on 10/4/2014 that liver dysfunction and hypertension and other diseases are increasing among the local residents.

He anticipates myocardial infarction and cerebral apoplexy may increase from now and emphasized the importance to collect data on resident’s health conditions.


After Chernobyl, myocardial infarction was observed to rapidly increase due to Cs-134/137 accumulated in heart. However Fukushima medical university announces the increase of those diseases is caused by the life style of disaster victims, which is also the same as the former Soviet Union did.

L’université médicale de Fukushima affirme que diverses maladies augmentent dans la région dévastée de Fukushima


Le Dr Ohira, professeur d’épidémiologie, de l’université médicale de Fukushima affirme que diverses maladies sont en augmentation dans l’ancienne zone évacuée de Fukushima.

Ceci concerne 13 communes. Au cours d’un symposium qui s’est tenu le 4 octobre 2014, le Pr. Ohira a affirmé que des dysfonctionnements hépatiques, de l’hypertension et d’autres maladies sont en augmentation chez les habitants.
Il anticipe que les infarctus du myocarde et les accidents vasculaires cérébraux vont sans doute augmenter à partir de maintenant et a insisté sur l’importance de collecter des données sur l’état de santé des habitants.

Après Tchernobyl, les infarctus du myocarde ont été constatés en augmentation à cause des Cs 134/137 accumulés dans le cœur. Néanmoins, l’université médicale de Fukushima déclare que l’augmentation de ces maladies est provoquée par le mode de vie des victimes de la catastrophe, c’est à dire exactement ce qu’avait proclamé l’ex-Union Soviétique après Tchernobyl.


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.
