September 2013 | Fish Caught By Destroyed Nuclear Plant In Japan Has 2, 500 Times The Legal Limit Of Radiation
The news slowly leaks out to the public. A fish caught nearby the Fukushima nuclear plant was found to have over 2, 500 the legal limit of radiation for seafood, deeming it inedible.
The company Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco) caught the fish, dubbed “Mike the Murasai” online, in the bay close to the Fukukshima Daiichi main reactor., The fish was confirmed to have 254, 000 becquerels per kilogram, or 2, 540 times the limit of 100 becquerels/kg set for seafood by the government. Scientists are worried that other fish in the area are eating contaminated species, spreading the radiation throughout the ocean’s ecosystem. Despite the high levels of radiation, the murasoi specimen did not show any abnormalities in its physical experience. James Gilbert | Elite.
July 2013 | MSN shows 22 photographs of mutated vegetable supposedly attributed to the nuclear radiation from the 2011 Fukushima meltdown. And, if we see this in vegetables what about animals and humans? What we see are numerous extra limbs, fruits, and whole plants attached to the one fruit or vegetable. Thus, we might extrapolate to see mutations such as extra limbs or organs coming out of unusual places on both the inside and outside of the body; such as, two heads, two hearts, extra legs and arms or possibly missing parts.
JUNE 2013 | Damaged Nuclear Plant in Japan Leaks Toxic Water by Martin Fackler TOKYO — 32 thousand gallons of radioactive water leaked from a large underground storage pool at Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. Radiation levels outside the pool have risen, a sign that some water is getting out, said the company, known as Tepco. Water used to cool the nuclear core become contaminated. Tepco said it was already storing more than a quarter-million tons of radioactive water in hundreds of large silver or blue tanks that seem to fill every available space at the plant, or in underground pools like the leaking one. With the decommissioning of the Fukushima plant likely to take decades, Tepco has said it expects the amount of radioactive water to keep growing, and possibly more than double within three years. The company has said it is building more storage space and new filtering facilities to clean the water.
April 2013 Update | Fallout harming infants. Two years later, the nuclear disaster in Fukushima, Japan may be affecting the health of young children in San Diego. [...] In a study of states in the West Coast and in the Pacific, infants born soon after the nuclear disaster were 28 percent more likely to develop congenital hypothyroidism, which can lead to stunted growth. In California, that number jumped to 39 percent. Critics say there is still no direct evidence those radiation levels can harm humans.
People living in Fukushima nuclear disaster zone have almost a 70% increased risk of thyroid cancer, the World Health Organization reports.
Their lifetime chances of getting the disease rose by two-thirds, from 0.75% to 1.25%
The increased risk of other cancer for people living near the Fukushima Daiichi power plant is similar to that of living in a polluted city.
Time Magazine | Meltdown: Despite the Fear, the Health Risks from the Fukushima Accident Are Minimal
The World Health Organization’s (WHO) report (PDF) on the estimated health effects from the Fukushima nuclear accident is out, and the results are… reassuring. The WHO modeled the impacts of excess radiation doses on those living around the Fukushima plant, which partially melted down after the earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011. The agency concluded that any additional cancer risk from radiation was small—extremely small, for the most part—and chiefly limited to those living closest to the plant. The WHO found:
