The manipulation of health data in Japan

I was so ignorant of nuclear power plants, I kept on living [in Koriyama, 60 km from Fukushima Daiichi]. After April 15, I started coughing very hard — couldn’t stop coughing and producing lots of green phlegm — then finally vomited blood. ["]

My husband couldn’t stand to see my suffering, he was wondering what had happened. I had a terrible headache. My skin inside my mouth kept peeling out, I had to spit it out. I also had a nose bleed in May, an awful lot of blood, it didn’t stop for a long time. I had tingling on hands and feet, always sick and tired.
[...]

I also asked my friend to get in contact with Dr. Hida, who has been an authority on treating atomic-bomb victims for a long time in Japan. He immediately said it’s rapid symptoms of nuclear radiation.

["] Kazue Morisono of Koriyama 3 July 2014 at the Correspondents Club of Japan [1]

Concerning the reports of health effects in Japan caused by the nuclear disaster in Fukushima prefecture, we have heard of many issues being reported. The Japanese government has now made health studies a state secret [2][3] and has threatened anyone who tries to release any findings with huge fines or prison sentences. It is also widely reported that criminal gangs [4] are working on behalf of the disgraced nuclear-plant operator TEPCO and these same criminal gangs also get many contracts in the Fukushima prefecture cleaning up contamination and supplying vulnerable people to do hazardous work at the Daichi nuclear-power plant.

Reported health effects
The health effects on children range from psychological and health effects. Hiroshima Syndrome website claims that children’s thyroid issues are normal and reports that the same level of thyroid damage is found in other parts of Japan. However, however a recent expose of the methods used to manipulate the data concerning this issue [5] cast a great deal of doubt on the report. This and other websites have been set up or supported by the Japanese government in a bid to win the information war and for providing argumentative links on the many comment sections and blogs in a bid to debunk any real findings that come out regardless of the threats and pressures placed upon the Japanese population since the disaster.

Health effects reported by the population
Other reported health effects include nosebleeds [6][7], genetic defects such as polydactyly [8](a significant increase seen in Chernobyl for the first few years after the disaster), bleeding from the skin [9] to name but a few.

Future health worries
Worries of future problems include heart defects [10], breast cancer [11], and leukemia [12] etc.

Long-term epidemiological studies not being done
As no long-term epidemiological studies are being invested in, there will be little proof of these being caused by cancer. Timothy Mouseau and Anders Moller have done some comprehensive studies [13] on wildlife both in Chernobyl and Fukushima prefecture and have found genetic and biological damage; however, the amount of funding available to his team is limited.
Restrictions on methodology and funding means that comprehensive long-term studies are nearly impossible. Concerning methodology, we see that the way in which radiation is measured does not take into account practical evidence or concerns such as issues with ingestion of radionuclides through air, water or food. In fact the use of the “dose” model has drawn severe criticism as it does not explain the health effects found in Chernobyl by NGOs such as Chernobyl Children International.

No consensus in official reports findings of the nuclear disaster
A recent report by SAFECAST [14] and IPPNW showed that the official UNSCEAR and WHO report on “dose” and effects to the Japanese victims in Fukushima and Myiagi prefectures was not accurate and did not take into account some obvious issues. In fact, even the panel that commissioned the UNSCEAR report were not in agreement as mentioned in the SAFECAST report.

The Chernobyl Spin in the media and scientific community
Concerning Chernobyl and its effects, we see that after the disaster the most affected country of Belarus has constantly tried to play down the effects of the radioactive contamination for economic reasons and at the detriment to its population. Belarus is a major agricultural provider to the region. Dissent has and continues to be heavily dealt with, health information has been limited with the support of Russian, UK, French and other nuclear-dependent countries.

NGOs and independent scientist have struggled to report and disseminate information to the world whilst the international nuclear cabal used the media and universities to manage any bad news that came out by sidelining information and by corrupting the peer-review process.

Japan follows the Belorussian example
As we can see today, Japan has brought in laws to stop the free flow of information and Japan is not funding credible epidemiological studies. Measurements of contamination data for scientific analysis are not being done in a fully transparent and honest way [15]. Only computerised statistical findings using limited data is being used.

Information concerning further contamination incidents are being covered up and not reported [17]. Independent activists and scientists are being targeted and even imprisoned [16][17][18].

Using these corrupted findings people in contaminated regions of Fukushima are being advised to stay in place by ETHOS [19][20] (set up originally in Chernobyl) and not consider evacuating.

Because of the general lack of transparency, we find that corruption is becoming more obvious in Japan as it did in Belarus.

Japan set to be worse than Belarus?
A general trend of militarisation and political restriction will be more effective in Japan as it is one of the largest economies in the world with some of its corporations amongst the richest and able to utilise a massive propaganda campaign against its citizens and that of the world using PR corporations such as Ogilvy and Mather (part of the massive WPP group of companies). Sir Martin Sorrel has been at the forefront of the Japanese government’s PR campaign to lessen the economic impact of this disaster and provide support with the use of its massive social media, press, and TV connections. Sir Martin Sorrel is well aware of how to use and abuse Japanese culture to keep the Japanese government on track to cover up the nuclear disaster and its consequences. When obvious illness arises then a payment is made that includes a gagging order to stop any news getting out and this has been reported concerning the workers from the nuclear site if they get critically ill or die.

The outlook for the victims of this disaster ise not good.

Some hidden facts concerning Chernobyl

(image by JANUK organisation)

 

According to the IAEA and connected organisations only 44 people have died from the Chernobyl disaster but according to a Ukrainian NGO’s findings [21], out of the 44,000 residents of Pipryat (a town near the doomed Chernobyl nuclear plant), only half the people are now alive today and hardly any of the dead lived past 45 years of age.

A compendium of some 33,000 documents that were translated from Russian into English proving a variety of health effects and environmental impacts was released the same time as the Fukushima disaster and was unfairly attacked by nuclear supporters and crucially this important information was ignored by the western media scientists and universities even after some small errors were corrected [22].

Constant delays in the Chernobyl Sarcophagus even though huge sums of money have been injected into the fund show us that large nuclear corporations are making a large profit at the expense of all those who have been funding the project (mainly European and other taxpayers). We see this type of abuse being repeated in Japan in the Fukushima prefecture.
Anti-nuclear campaigners are constantly being targeted by the authorities and this is only reported by human-rights campaigners and not reported on in the western media.

Thousands of victims living in contaminated areas and activists constantly lodge requests for asylum in countries all over the world but their request are ignored and this is not reported by any media sources in the west.
6,000 children a year are born with heart defects in the contaminated areas of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.
