FRCSR collects, through the Internet, reports of physical changes people have been experiencing since the Fukushima nuclear accident after March 11, 2011. The extent of radiation contamination is extremely serious, and we receive many inquiries from overseas. We will extract important points from applicable news articles, translate it into English. Our intention is to share with you the recognition and understanding of the reality of radiation contamination in real time as much as possible.

A new article in Fukushima Voice:
Crititcal Alliances: Japan's Yamashita and USA's Yanagisawa--convincing the world of radiophobia lies


From tweets by @FRCSR:

1. Shizuoka hospital has an unsually high demand for upper GI endoscopy:  referral after barium swallow is 1.8 times normal, and patients can't get appointments.

2. Leukopenia or ↓white blood cells in adults reported in Fukushima, Gunma, Ibaraki, Tochigi and Saitama prefectures in Japan.

3. Radiologist told ultrasound technicians not to record incidental findings of thyroid mass on carotid ultrasound.

Tweeted by @giovanni78 on April 23, 2012:

At a symposium for medical management of radiation exposure, a teaching radiologist said, "You can see thyroid when performing a ultrasound examination of carotid artery for assessment of carotid artery stenosis due to carotid atherosclerosis. I have told the ultrasound technicians not to maintain any record or images of thyroid findings in cases of incidental findings of thyroid abnormalities such as nodules. I told them that they would be fully responsible for consequences if they maintain such records. Even if the findings might not be pathological, patients would worry and cause problems." 

I have never heard of such an order: Do not record the findings. 

This is how far they have come (in order to cover-up facts).

4. In Fukushima, lessons of Chernobyl are ignored.

An interview of Dr. Michel Fernex, a professor at University of Basel in Switzerland who visited Fukushima.

I met with four physicians from Fukushima Medical University in cardiology, urology, internal medicine and ophthalmology. They all seemed unaware of conditions related to radiation contamination. They were very surprised to see young patients with myocardial infarction, diabetes and eye diseases. I told them about the work of Professor Bandazhevsky which highlighted the links between contamination, particularly by Cesium 137, and these diseases.

Directive was given at Fukushima Medical University not to mention radiation. One young professor of ecology tried to study effects of nuclear disaster on children, but he has received threats. The majority of the faculty follow orders and they close their eyes to save their careers: this is very serious. A country such as Japan with strong research abilities should further investigate the genetic alterations induced by radiation contamination and develop anti-mutagenics to reduce genetic abnormalities that will be passed on from generation to generation.

Thyroid diseases are already apparent, but cancers have latency: brain cancer will be seen in children in four years and later in adults. The number of babies with low birth weight increases. The number of female births down 5% because the female embryo is more vulnerable. Appearance of diseases of the newborn and Down's syndrome is still kept secret.
