Fukushima’s Children Face Skyrocketing Cancer Rates

It has been more than 3 years since the devastating nuclear accident at Japan’s Fukushima plant, sparked by a tsunami and earthquake. While Japanese authorities have dismissed claims of health impacts on residents and minimized surrounding contamination, the New York Times this week explained in a report entitled, “Assessing Fukushima Damage Without Eyes on the Inside,” how little is really known.

Reporter Matthew L. Wald wrote in the Times, “nobody has yet examined many of the most important parts of the wreckage. Though three and a half years have passed, it is still too dangerous to climb inside for a look, and sending in a camera would risk more leaks.”

What we do know about Fukushima in a disturbing new report is that there are tangible health impacts – on children living in and around Fukushima. The Fukushima Medical University recently tested hundreds of thousands of children and found that nearly half of them have “pre-cancerous thyroid abnormalities, primarily nodules, and cysts.”

    Pay attention folks! The radiation is not just affecting people in Fukushima This Fukushima toxic radiation is becoming more concentrated in the Pacific Ocean and its moving into the west coast of the United States and Canada to poison the fish and sea life that us humans are eating! Some of the poisoned fish will have more radiation in them then others depending on Pacific ocean currents and migration patterns! Anyone eating Pacific fish and seafood should think hard and soon about doing a radiation and heavy metal detox with the natural mineral called Zeolite that has been proven to safely remove both radiation and heavy metals from the body! More more information on this detox so a search for the single word Zeolite.
