Now we may be seeing the real effects of the Japan disaster.

A health journal has reported some stunning information.

Have we been misled by our own "authorities" ?

Has genuine information been selectively suppressed ?

I think so.

We were hearing things at first, but much was rolled over by changing the standards.

There were a lot of non-believers at first.

How about now ?

Impact Seen As Roughly Comparable to Radiation-Related Deaths After Chernobyl; Infants Are Hardest Hit, With Continuing Research Showing Even Higher Possible Death Count.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- An estimated 14,000 excess deaths in the United States are linked to the radioactive fallout from the disaster at the Fukushima nuclear reactors in Japan, according to a major new article in the December 2011 edition of the International Journal of Health Services. This is the first peer-reviewed study published in a medical journal documenting the health hazards of Fukushima.

Authors Joseph Mangano and Janette Sherman note that their estimate of 14,000 excess U.S. deaths in the 14 weeks after the Fukushima meltdowns is comparable to the 16,500 excess deaths in the 17 weeks after the Chernobyl meltdown in 1986. The rise in reported deaths after Fukushima was largest among U.S. infants under age one. The 2010-2011 increase for infant deaths in the spring was 1.8 percent, compared to a decrease of 8.37 percent in the preceding 14 weeks.

Just six days after the disastrous meltdowns struck four reactors at Fukushima on March 11, scientists detected the plume of toxic fallout had arrived over American shores. Subsequent measurements by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) found levels of radiation in air, water, and milk hundreds of times above normal across the U.S. The highest detected levels of Iodine-131 in precipitation in the U.S. were as follows (normal is about 2 picocuries I-131 per liter of water): Boise, ID (390); Kansas City (200); Salt Lake City (190); Jacksonville, FL (150); Olympia, WA (125); and Boston, MA (92).

What will the "final" count be 20 years from now ?

Already posted bro, I will find you the link in just one second.

Star and flag anyways

Scary if it's true, I believe it's true.

Yeah the search function has been real picky lately. It's crazy news though, the debunkers said the study wasn't legit, but that's what they do. There definitely is some truth to this report.

It just happened - sorry if this has already been posted - but Alex Witt (from MSNBC) just announced this story on a headline update on the Weather Channel at I believe - 6:24 a.m.est or a few minutes on either side of that time. I'm in shock - we ATS'ers have known all along that this giant plume of radioactive particles was coming down on us every time it rains. . . . . but to have the main stream media announce this with a black and red gigantic banner headline at the bottom of the screen is unbelievable!
Here's my question . . .if they are actually willing to tell us this much . . how much worse is it really???
I hope someone did a screen capture of the banner headline - I wouldn't have believed it if I had not seen it with my own eyes.
Special thanks to every human being who started a thread about Fukushima on ATS since the March earthquake and tsunami - the links you have provided have kept the real information flowing.
I'm in shock. I thought they'd keep the truth covered up much longer than this!!

I think they finally came out with it because ....

They read the article too and had no choice !

Of course there's more to it.

Sorry...but do they really have evidence that 14,000 people died from radiation sickness in such a short period of time?

I would think near instant deaths like this would require extremely high levels of radiation exposure, that would have meant tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, more flocking to hospitals with radiation sickness symptoms.

As far as I know, nothing like this happened. This would have been MSM fare for weeks (like the supposed H1N1 scare...or the SARS incident).

Are we supposed to believe that this residual radiation either killed people quickly - or didn't affect them at all?

Just doesn't compute for me.

Good question.

It looks like they are comparing this to a similar timeframe at Chernobyl.

Maybe we look into that info ?

The EPA did say there were very high levels in the areas of the U.S. a week after.
