Thyroid conditions among the young population in three Japanese prefectures – Aomori, Yamanashi and Nagasaki – are almost the same as in Fukushima Prefecture, according to a survey by the Environment Ministry.

The ministry conducted the study from last November to March this year on a total of 4,365 people aged 3 to 18 in the cities of Hirosaki in Aomori, Kofu in Yamanashi and Nagasaki, and concluded on Friday that the percentages of detecting small lumps and other anomalies in the surveyed population were “almost equal to or slightly lower in Fukushima,” the area that was hit by a nuclear crisis in March 2011.

  1. Oh I get it. It’s kind of like how we were told that the Chernobyl radioactive cloud never reached Europe. Now we know otherwise.
    Tell us another one…

  2. Yeah! We’re all “getting it” – just a lot quicker. Remember Nagasaki/Hiroshima were nearly 70 years ago, Chernobyl, nearly 30 years ago, FUKUSHIMA = not quite 3 years.

    The worst is yet to come.
