59 Total Thyroid Tumors In Fukushima Children
Novembe r 13th, 2013 SimplyInfo
New data has been released from the government study of thyroid abnormalities and cancer in Fukushima children. Of those screened 59 have been found to have tumors. The health survey examined 289,960 children total.
This becomes 1 cancer per 5000 people. This is far higher than the pre-disaster levels. This raises big questions about the claims that these are increased just due to more screening. The more these numbers grow the harder it is to dismiss the findings are some version of normal.

Japan lawmaker gets death threat for breaching imperial etiquette
13 November 2013 Voice of Russia
The menacing letter, discovered by security officers at a Tokyo building filled with lawmakers' offices, warned that "a group of assassins will be dispatched shortly".
I nside the envelope was a clasp knife with a nine-centimetre blade.
The threat was directed at Yamamoto, who was elected to parliament as an independent on a strongly anti-nuclear platform.
Yamamo to has said the hand-written note had been his attempt to let the emperor know directly about the plight of people affected by the atomic disaster at Fukushima.

This is a story that needs more focus and that is that nuclear accidents can cause contamination that can not be cleaned up and it displaces people off of the land often for very very long time and they can not go back to their homes. They are subjected to the fear that they or their children will be negatively affected. Also the officials and corporate faces do not want to admit how bad it is because they do not want to be liable for ruining all of these lives. This is the other face of the nuclear age. We should make sure that these people are remembered and demand that their suffering is also alleviated.
