riday, 27 September 2013

Dear all, please do read the following article. A US student who stayed in Tohoku only several days even developed symptom of radiation exposure such as vomitting and nose bleeding.

Everyone, see the article below. Even students in the United States only stayed a few days in the Northeast, we are manifestations vomiting, and nosebleeds.

Pregnant women and children have been living in these contaminated areas in Japan. Please help Japanese kids and future generations!

Japanese pregnant women and children are in such a place.Please try to help children, the future generation of Japan!

Dear Minister of Education Hakubun Shimomura, 
Shimomura to the Education, Culture, Sports, Science and phase

I use the words "in principle" because in April of this year I was forced to make one of the most difficult decisions of my teaching career at the tertiary level: I was forced to recommend to the university authorities where I was employed that they postpone their planned Study Abroad Program in Japan scheduled for the fall of 2013.

We used to the word "in principle". April this year, was faced with the most difficult decision in higher teacher life of my own. the university authorities that I have been hired, and was forced to postpone the recommendation of "study abroad program in Japan" was planned in the fall of 2013.

While I deeply regretted this recommendation, I honestly felt that in good conscience I had no choice. That is to say, in March 2013 I attended a two-day Fukushima-related medical seminar at the New York Academy of Sciences where I learned, for the first time, the full scope of the ongoing dangers posed by radiation contamination from the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant.

This recommendation itself, I think very sorry. However, against my parents, there was no other choice for me. In March 2013, in the New York Academy of Medicine, I took part in a medical seminar in Fukushima-related two-day.And for the first time, I was able to learn the whole picture about the dangers of progress by radioactive contamination from the Fukushima Daiichi.

(Translator's Note:. Speaker from Japan was Matsumura Akio and Mr. Sakiyama ratio Hayako's, but the big two of them did not mention the health damage caused by the Fukushima accident 
So, the second day probably the person this I think he was able to hear was done in lunch meeting, the health damage reports from Japan. Hashimoto Yurika who spoke thyroid abnormalities that can be seen from the outside Kawai Katsuko's, children who spoke the rubble incineration problem, ~ We have a story of health damage I also son and myself including 
... had little worth that you have made ​​in the Jibara

This knowledge was compounded by the fact that, upon returning to my home in Yellow Springs, Ohio, I was contacted by a 2012 Study Abroad Program participant who informed me that she had suffered from such symptoms as vomiting, nosebleeds and recurring headaches, all symptoms typically associated with radiation contamination. I was forced to take action.

When I go back to the home of Yellow Springs Ohio from study abroad program in 2012, one participant has had manifestations similar to knowledge acquired at this time. It was the typical symptoms associated with vomiting, nosebleeds, persistent headache, and radiation pollution. I could not help without action.

True, the student in question made ​​a personal choice to visit the Tohoku region during the individual research period that was part of the Study Abroad Program. Thus, one reasonable response would have been to forbid 2013 students from traveling anywhere north of Tokyo. As I Considered this option, However, I Could not Recall but the warnings Given by nuclear and medical Experts both inside and outside of p Concerning the danger of additional major radiation contamination coming from Fukushima No. 1. 
THUS, I Regretfully Came to the conclusion That I could not expose students, especially female students of childbearing age, to the possible danger of radiation contamination, and informed the university accordingly.

In fact, in this study abroad program, a period of personal study, the students had to choose a place visit the Northeast. I thought that such, in the study in 2013, that the visit to the north of Tokyo forbid and answering it with muscle.

And when you think about this choice, for a new risk of radiation contamination coming from Fukushima Daiichi, it did not help but recall the warning from medical experts and nuclear power other than Japan.

By such, reached the conclusion that it is not possible to make exposed to the risk of radioactivity not be able to be exposed to students, the female students of age to breed in particular, I told the university to that effect unfortunately .

Sadly, in the ensuing months the situation at Fukushima No. 1 has only worsened. Only recently Tepco finally admitted that 2.35 billion becquerels of cesium per liter of water, roughly the same as that measured right after the crisis began in spring 2011, has accumulated in groundwater tested around Fukushima No. 1, from where it then seeps into the ocean. 

Unfortunately, then, Fukushima Daiichi is deteriorating. Cesium of 2.35 billion becquerels per liter concentration of roughly the same after the accident has accumulated in the basement of the Fukushima Dai-ichi, TEPCO announced that flows out to sea barely recently.

Needless to say, this amount of radiation is Millions of times higher than p's acceptable limit. 
With this radiation Now Spewing uncontrolled into the Ocean, it is no longer simply Possible to Avoid the danger by not Traveling to the Fukushima area.

Needless to say, millions of times the acceptable amount of radioactivity is. It is not a risk if picture Cirno flows out to sea radioactivity such without being control, that is avoided if you do not just visit to Fukushima.

That is to say, fish are swimming in an ever more heavily contaminated environment where radiation bio-accumulates in the seafood. Thus the largest fish, which eat the most, often live the longest and swim great distances, become the most contaminated, and it is simply impossible for the Japanese government, or any government, to check every fish caught to ensure its safety.

In other words, since the bioaccumulation occurs in seafood, fish are swimming in the situation that has been heavily polluted further. So we eat most often, a large fish swim long distances to live long, becomes the thing that is most polluted. Also other governments in Japan government, to make sure safety to catch the fish is not possible for all.

Another solution I seriously considered was for 2013 program students to become vegetarians while in Japan. However, to my dismay I recently learned, from an article published by the Fukushima Minpo newspaper on Jan. 24, that the Japanese government plans to purchase contaminated rice grown in Fukushima Prefecture (providing it contains less than 100 becquerels / kg) and later sell it nationwide.

In the program of 2013, while in Japan, I was thinking seriously, it was that you have become a vegetarian students. However, according to the Fukushima people information on the 24th January, and was disappointed, that it is planning to purchase the contaminated rice Japanese government has been grown in Fukushima Prefecture (subject to the 100Bq/kg below), to sell across the country was.

I fully realize, Minister Shimomura, that you are not in charge of decisions related to Fukushima No. 1. But as a Cabinet minister, l appeal to you to add your voice to those demanding that effective measures be taken immediately.

Shimomura minister, I have proposed that that you are not the decision makers at the Fukushima Daiichi related. However, I think as ministers, and want to go seeking to take the urgent measures that run power.

One eminently reasonable proposal is for the Japanese government to take complete responsibility for the clean-up operation, given Tepco's demonstrated incompetence. Then, calling on the best expertise from throughout the world, all effective measures, regardless of cost, should be taken to completely stop additional radiation from the disaster contaminating the environment.

The proposal clearly appropriate to the Japanese government, is that the government, to the decontamination work on behalf of the TEPCO that was lacking in ability. It is to keep completely release to the environment of radioactivity is carried from it, and called on expert most qualified from all over the world, regardless of the cost effective measures of all, arising from the disaster.

Needless to say, These Measures SHOULD be taken first and Foremost to protect the English People Themselves. But, Additionally, this would allow educators Like myself to once again recommend, in good Conscience, That Foreign students Study in p. 
I long for That day to come.

Needless to say, these measures, precisely in order to protect the people of Japan, should be taken first.

And, we are able to allow students to education who has a conscience like me by doing so is, to a study in Japan. I hope that such a day will come.
