Wow! It Appears Fukushima Is Causing Americans To Get Cancer

Thyroid cancer is up 6000% in Japan and suspected high spike in cancer rates on West Coast of America.

An internal Document released from TEPCO that in 2008 a need to build up defence against sunami was know and they did not take action.

2 questions arise.
Why did they ignore their internal warnings?
How is this not criminal negligence on a global scale?

I guess saving money precedes safety.

The Corporation were influencing the government to change sea-wall standards for their benefit.

This could have caused unnecessary drownings because of nuclear lobbying against higher walls, not just at Nuclear sites, but for the entire country.

I know there was a spike in miscarriages right after the explosions over in my area, I also know that I, and my 4 living siblings and my mother have all been diagnosed with thyroid problems with none in family history; All after the nuclear disaster.
Also drinking water in 2011 over here was tested at 242 times the permissible levels.
This is ingested and causing damage to the thyroid.
Dereliction of duties from states and the Fed is rampant.

Well I'm off to Vault 101 so I don't care!

What I don't understand is, why does a country with a bad record of earthquakes and tsunami's build a F'ing nuclear power plant on their coast!

I don't think that suing them would help at all. It will lower their ability to do things right. If they couldn't do things right the first time, a lawsuit would make it worse.

If who ever is suing wins, I hope they put that $55,000,000,000.00 to use by hiring a company that knows what they're doing.

I take umbrage with the 6000% claimed in the OP. First estimates were 2 million people would be affected with currently 387,000 people being monitored . A 6000% increase would mean that Over 2.3 billion people are now affected . This hardly seems likely in Lieu of Japan's population . Now my math might be a little off ( I did it my head and it's getting old )but the principle is sound .

6000% percent in this case is just a fear mongering way to say 60% . Which is also a figure I am highly skeptical of .

Did you mean 60 times more...

Yep

Edit;

Here's some honesty for everybody . After glancing at those figures again they are totally wrong. I based it on the precipitants in the monitoring not the number of cases or the national previous average. But I believe my promise still stands I could understand but be skeptical of the 60% increase . But a 6000% increase in actual thyroid cases would be very noticeable . If someone can supply the numbers of currently diagnosed cases versus pre Fuko. We could certainly do the math quickly .

Just quoting what was said in this interview.
I guess come September 23, it won't matter...

Why is the 23rd of September significant?

Because all - I repeat all - nuclear plants are built close to sources of 'fresh water' such as an outlet to the sea.

It's pretty rare. A 60 fold increase would mean it's not as rare, but your numbers are way, way off.

I'm seeing base rates about 6-15 per 100,000 per year. Keep it easy go up 100x, that would be 6-15 per 1000, or maybe 1% of the population. I think that would be noticeable, and ... well that's what could have happened here. It got noticed.

How can we get "ScientificRailGun" (I think that is her name) involved in this conversation? She lives in Japan and always seems keen on talking about Fukushima

a 6000% percent increase = 60 cases in a sample where previously only 1 was the ` norm `

I never researched, but I remember watching a video that showed all nuclear power plants in the US are built on fault lines
. The only thing people can do now is to protect themselves as best as they can. Supposedly there was much research done after Chernobyl regarding ways to fortify the lymphatic system. I seem to remember that pectin helps as does potassium iodide. Unfortunately this will not go away. I also remember hearing that volcanic eruptions release way more radiation than anything humans create. If you have fear, then I feel it is best to research solutions. I am very grateful that we have the internet for research. On the other hand, always being on the internet also exposes people to a different kind of radiation, I think it is called electro magnetic wave radiation which can affect people's health. Not to mention it is not good for the human body to be sedintary. The lymphatic system cannot drain properly. Plus computers and iphones are really filthy, people just don't realize how gross they are.

There is a nuc plant 50 miles away on the coast of South East Florida. We get Hurricanes sometimes with storm surge. Scary to think what a cat 5 storm surge might do to the plant?!?! www.google.com...@27.3505922,-80.242044,15z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x88dee51454dbe3cd:0x356fb7d6a2f968dc

My sniffer is on point, it seems!

a 6000% increase if complete bunk. The Japanese Government is anticipating increased cancer occurrences, but not near a 6000% level. They're monitoring around 3 to 4 hundred thousand people, and those are people who almost exclusively lived near the Daiichi plant when it went.

Here in Tokyo I have a friend who owns a Geiger Counter, and he takes measurements every so often. Nothing above background has been detected, but we are also pretty far from the Fukushima prefecture.

I have no doubt people are going to sick and die from this. It was an awful disaster and the radiation released is certainly significant. Catastrophic would be a good word to use. But we learned from the mistakes that were made at Chernobyl, and I imagine less people will be affected than the doom porn junkies are claiming.

On the topic of California and the U.S. West Coast in general, it's certainly possible that some irradiated water has made it's way to the U.S. west coast. In fact, it's 100% certain that SOME radiation has come ashore. I see a lot of youtube videos of people going and measuring radiation on west coast beaches and making gasping noises when the radiation spikes around the certain spots.

What they don't tell you is that 99% of the time, they're getting measurements from black sand. Black sand has a lot of Monazite in it, which is a rare earth mineral which also contains significant levels of Thorium, which causes geiger counters to go all happy and clicking. If you're interested, there's a paper on natural radiation sources here.

If you're ever curious why those youtube videos on California beaches have spikes in only certain spots, that's why. Monazite. If the radiation were truly significant enough to cause higher readings, the reading would be more uniform to the area in general, and not just in spots.

That's not to say people shouldn't be worried. Fukushima is still very much an active radiation event, and no where near fully contained.

I don't get your point. Are you hoping for a disaster in California? That's pretty sick.

But I haven't seen a 'Flying A' in decades. Nice.
