We need help from outside Japan because Japanese people don’t think the situation for children is getting worse and worse.
We are now in very bad condition. Especially for children.
So please give us help.

There’s been a melt-through, there’s cracks… Fukushima reactors not likely to stop leaking into ocean anytime soon — Levels in fish still as high as 2 years ago

 [snip] Ken Buesseler, Senior scientist in the Department of Marine Chemistry & Geochemistry at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution:

There’s some basic health questions, like you can keep measuring fish all you want, but when will they be safe, when will the levels go down?

We’re sitting here a couple of years after, and the levels for some of the fish, particularly the ones who reside on the bottom are almost as high as they were two years ago. […] So the fact that it’s still high tells us a lot of things, like there’s still a source, there still has to be cesium coming either from the reactor, the groundwater that are saturated with the radioactivity at that site and or the seafloor that’s now contaminated off Fukushima.

 Japan Doctor: So enraged by response of gov’t — Fukushima children’s rashes, nosebleeds, diarrhea, fatigue blamed on radiation-phobia mothers

[link to]

[snip] I was at a loss for words because of these mothers’ situation, and I could not sleep at night because I was so enraged at the government’s heartless response. [...]

 Yet the children were exhibiting a range of symptoms including sore throats, nosebleeds, diarrhea, fatigue, headaches and rashes.

The most dangerous thing is to write off causes of illness as psychosocial factors with statements like, “Your child’s stress comes from not being able to go outdoors” and that a “mother worrying will make her child sick.” [...]

 You are a guinea pig


 [snip] A hidden epidemic is poisoning America. The toxins are in the air we breathe and the water we drink, in the walls of our homes and the furniture within them. We can’t escape it in our cars. It’s in cities and suburbs. It afflicts rich and poor, young and old. And there’s a reason why you’ve never read about it in the newspaper or seen a report on the nightly news: it has no name — and no antidote.
