Earlier this week the Japan Times ran a piece which began:
Thyroid cancer in local children and adolescents following the Fukushima nuclear disaster was probably caused by radiation released in the accident, four researchers said Tuesday in a report.
Annual thyroid cancer incidence rates in Fukushima Prefecture from March 2011 through late last year were 20 to 50 times the national level, said a team led by Toshihide Tsuda, professor of environmental epidemiology at Okayama University. The findings were published in the electronic edition of the journal of the International Society for Environmental Epidemiology.
Considering the new security laws which have been passed in Japan, which now means you can be prosecuted for saying anything bad about Fukushima, I was somewhat surprised to read those first two paragraphs. However, the Japan Times piece then goes on to rubbish the report, and it finishes with this:
But the prefectural government and many experts have doubted whether these cases are related to the nuclear disaster, as the amount of radioactive iodine released during the crisis was smaller than that following the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear accident.

Dana Durnford’s Expedition for Life involved covering all 15,000 miles of the Canadian Pacific coastline, documenting the damage done by Fukushima radiation (the west coast of North America is downwind and downstream of Japan). Most of the tidal zone life in British Columbia has died off. This hasn’t been reported by the mainstream media. However, earlier this year there was this jolly report by CTV News in Vancouver: B.C. cancer cases to rise 57 per cent by 2030, agency warns (no mention of Fukushima, of course). Much of the alternate media is just as infiltrated/controlled as the mainstream. However, some of the alternate media still fight the good fight: Government Emails Reveal Fukushima Radiation Could Cause Thyroid Cancer to Skyrocket in Americans.
