Thyroid abnormalities have now been confirmed among tens of thousands of children downwind from Fukushima. They are the first clear sign of an unfolding radioactive tragedy that demands this industry be buried forever.
A new study from the Radiation and Public Health Project found that babies born in the western United States as well as other Pacific countries shortly after the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan in March 2011 may be at greater risk for congenital hypothyroidism.
TOKYO (AP) — The Japanese utility that owns the tsunami-damaged nuclear power plant says it has detected a record 740,000 becquerels per kilogram of radioactive cesium in a fish caught close to the plant.
The two-year anniversary of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster is rapidly approaching, and the waters around the crippled plant are still highly contaminated with radiation, according to new reports.
TOKYO (AP) — Radioactive cesium levels in most kinds of fish caught off the coast of Fukushima haven’t declined in the year following Japan’s nuclear disaster, a signal that the seafloor or leakage from the damaged reactors must be continuing to contaminate the waters — possibly threatening fisheries for decades, a researcher says.
During a recent Congressional delegation trip to Japan, Oregon Senator Ron Wyden witnessed with his own eyes the horrific aftermath of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, which we have heard very little about from the media in recent months.
Scientists were shocked to learn recently that levels of ionizing radiation in sea life living off the eastern coast of Japan are still exceptionally high following the devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck the region back in March 2011.
This conventional nuke disaster is 400 time more deadly than Chernobyl in radiation output proven thus far.

In the immediate wake of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster that occurred in Japan last year, radioactive releases of epic proportions flooded the waters of the Pacific Ocean, where they now flow adrift.
It’s not just Fukushima, though that may be enough. The northern hemisphere especially had been inundated with radioactive fallout by atmospheric nuclear weapons testing from 1950 to 1963.
Reactor #4 (400 times more radiation output that Chernobyl) in Japan has a 70% probability of full melt down and zero radioactive containment by August of this year, according to hard core first hand nuclear engineers on the ground, at the devastated site and area in Japan, that can lead to a evacuation of up to 40 million Japanese permanently to islands owned by Russia, already negotiated for, some 1,300 miles away, that was reported on in the NY Times and London Times, in January, February and March of this year.

As the fallout – no pun intended – from Japan’s tsunami-damaged nuclear reactors at its Fukushima complex continues to worsen, scientists are now concerned about another related phenomenon that appears to be invading the U.S. West Coast – buckyballs.
Scores of experts and analysts have feared for months that it would happen, and now it has: Radiation from the heavily damaged nuclear power plants at Japan’s Fukushima complex has made it into the seafood chain off the coast of America.
U.S. Senator Ron Wyden is, as far as Senators go, an honorable guy. I don’t agree with all his politics, but I actually used to live in his district in Oregon when he was a congressman (1981 – 1996), and I remember him standing out as someone who genuinely seemed to care about the People.
If there were ever a case for individuation, this is it. As of this writing I sit in my hotel suite in Tokyo, nearing the end of a 12-day NLP training that I have been conducting in Japan for nearly 20 years. This trip is different, as I elected to bring an extra 75-pound suitcase full of food. I don’t trust that food grown in any Japanese soil is safe.
Kyoto, Japan — On 30 April, seventy-two Japanese NGO organizations lead by Shut Tomari and Green Action send an urgent request to the UN and Japanese government urging immediate action to stabilize the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Unit 4 spent nuclear fuel. The letter was endorsed by experts from Japan and abroad.
The news you are about to read puts everything else in the category of “insignificant” by comparison. Concerned about the 2012 U.S. presidential election? Worried about GMOs? Fluoride? Vaccines? Secret prisons?
PBS News Hour reports on ongoing concerns about radiation contamination in the Japanese food supply.
An anonymous official from the Japanese government recently came forward with the startling results of radiation tests conducted on children shortly after the disastrous earthquake and tsunami struck the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility.
Nukes KILL and remain a dangerous, terrorist and natural disaster prone as well as overtly expensive (taxpayer and consumer subsidized) way to boil water and steal money.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Monday that the head of its troubled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant has been hospitalized and will be relieved of his post for medical treatment, effective Thursday.
Fukushima Daiichi Plant Chief Hospitalized
After enduring many months of total information blackout on the situation, an intelligence source connected with NaturalNewshas just informed us that Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactor 4 may now be on the verge of collapsing, and that mass evacuations in northern Japan could be necessary if such a collapse occurs and is confirmed.
Things are suddenly heating up again with Fukushima. As we reported yesterday, the southern wall of Fukushima reactor #4 apparently collapsed over the past few days, calling into question the structural integrity of the remainder of the containment building.
NUKES are a transfer of wealth through massive taxpayer subsidies and consumer rates for power than are not the hyped BIG LIE of “so low in cost to meter”, plus harmful, dangerous, terror prone, with spent rod waste storage lasting longer than the cumulative span of human civilization existence.
Alternatively, COLD FUSION was proven as decentralized least cost per kilowatt hour of power generation, at the University Of Bologna in Italy this last February, without radiation risks and cost of waste storage.

AT FUKUSHIMA DAIICHI NUCLEAR POWER PLANT, Japan — The most striking feature at this crippled plant on Saturday was not the blasted-out reactor buildings, or the makeshift tsunami walls, but the chaotic mess.
Devastation at Japan Site, Seen Up Close
Conventional nuclear power is a dangerous and very expensive way to boil water (with huge taxpayer subsidies and high consumer cost) and with dangerous spent rods, that are prone to terrorist use, and costly storage for tens of thousands of years.

Radioactive particles associated with nuclear fission have been detected at Japan’s tsunami-damaged atomic power plant, officials said Wednesday, suggesting one of its reactors could have a new problem.
Authorities from Fukushima and other disaster-stricken areas in Japan say they do not have the capacity to process and dispose of all the radioactive rubble left over from the massive earthquake and tsunami that struck back in March.
High levels of radioactive cesium were found in an independent study in a Fukushima city district, prompting a citizens group and others involved to urge the government on Wednesday to promptly designate the area as one of the contamination hot spots for possible evacuation and ensure proper decontamination.
Pockets of lethal levels of radiation have been detected at Japan’s crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in a fresh reminder of the risks faced by workers battling to contain the worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl.
Pockets of High Radiation Remind of Fukushima Danger
Around 45 percent of children in Fukushima Prefecture surveyed by the local and central governments in late March experienced thyroid exposure to radiation, although in all cases in trace amounts that did not warrant further examination, officials of the Nuclear Safety Commission said Tuesday.
If you have been following the events surrounding the unfolding Fukushima Daiichi nuclear catastrophe here on NaturalNews over the past several months, you are already likely aware that it is now considered by some to be the worst industrial disaster the world has ever seen, and one that will continue to worsen in the coming months and years ahead.
It is nothing short of astonishing that the nuclear catastrophe we’ve all been told was “no big deal” has now escalated into the worst nuclear disaster in the history of human civilization.
Thanks to an announcement by TEPCO, we now have a “target date” for addressing the radiation leaks from Fukushima. Believe it or not, TEPCO now says it plans to “reduce” the radiation leaking within three months.
Here are the latest developments on the Fukushima catastrophe, including quotes from a well-known physicist who is now raising the alarm over “three raging meltdowns” at the Fukushima complex.
Seawater near Japan’s quake-hit Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has a much higher level of radiation than previously reported, officials say.
The battle to save the Fukushima nuclear power plant now appears lost as the radioactive core from Reactor No. 2 has melted through the containment vessel and dropped into the concrete basement of the reactor structure.
In the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear meltdown catastrophe, plutonium has now been found in soil samples taken from five locations around Fukushima. Yes, plutonium. But here’s the real whopper:
Several nuclear power plants in the southeastern US have begun to detect low levels of radioactive iodine-131 in the air, which is the same type of radiation now being found all over the place as a result of the mega-earthquake and tsunami that struck the Fukushima Daiichi power plant in Japan on March 11, 2011.
The Fukushima crisis continues to worsen by the day, with nuclear experts around the world finally realizing and admitting we’ve all been lied to.
