Study: Fukushima radiation fallout has devastated health of US babies on West Coast and in other areas

by Jonathan Benson, Natural News:

New peer-reviewed research published in the Open Journal of Pediatrics raises fresh concerns about the health effects of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster on American children and babies. As has long been suspected by those with an understanding of the widespread reach of radioactive fallout from Fukushima, newborns living in California, Hawaii, Washington, and other West Coast states appear to have been directly affected by Fukushima fallout in a serious way, which is reflected by the disproportionate rate of hypothyroidism observed amongst this demographic.

Conducted by a duo of scientists from the Radiation and Public Health Project, a non-profit education and scientific organization that seeks to understand the relationship between nuclear radiation exposure and public health, the research evaluated average rates of hypothyroidism both before and after the Fukushima disaster. In their findings, Joseph J. Mangano and Janette D. Sherman reported that, compared to one year earlier, babies born between one week and 16 weeks after the nuclear meltdowns in Alaska, California, Hawaii, Oregon, and Washington were 28 percent more likely to suffer from congenital hypothyroidism.

    Anti-Nuclear BS! They should be more concerned and outraged with what has/is transpiring at the Philadelphia Abortion Murder Mill, where infants are murdered on a routine basis.If the concern is about “The Babies”, then pay attention to the willfull murder of infants “specimens” as they ar referred to as their little spinal cords are cut while they cry out!

    In the USA alone consider these stories:

    25 Percent of U.S. Nuclear Power Plants Are Leaking Radioactive Chemicals

    Dangerous radiation leaked from three-quarters of U.S. nuclear power plants

    Leaking Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant shutdown ordered as Obama pledges $50 billion for nuclear power

    Radioactive Leak at Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Station

    Radioactive Leak at California Nuclear Power Plant

    All Nuclear Reactors Leak All of the Time

    And then more recently: Arkansas Hit with Nuclear Accident AND Major Oil Spill

    GEOGRAPHIC VARIATION IN U.S. THYROID CANCER INCIDENCE, AND A CLUSTER NEAR NUCLEAR REACTORS IN NEW JERSEY, NEW YORK, AND PENNSYLVANIA Joseph J. Mangano

    “Thyroid cancer incidence is increasing more rapidly than any other malignancy in the U.S.(along with liver cancer), rising nearly threefoldfrom 1980 to 2006….. ”

    “….. Future study should make all due effort to establishing exposure levels, by state and county, of radioactive iodine, a task made difficult by the multiple vectors of ingestion (air, water, food) and the combination of local and distant sources of iodine isotopes. Other potential co factors that might affect cancer risk, including demographics, life style patterns, and use of medical services, should be studied as well. Despite these challenges, careful attention should be paid to results in this report, especially as rapidly rising thyroid cancer rates in the U.S. and other nations remain unexplained” (Italics mine)

    Clearly the rise in Thyroid cancer cannot be attributed to Fukushima alone, but to many years of exposure to radiation from Nuclear detonations and leaking power stations over a sixty-seven year period. Also see:

    An investigation by Associated Press found that 75 percent of all U.S. nuclear sites have leaked radioactive tritium.
    And whistleblowers at the Nuclear Regulator Commission say that the risk of a major meltdown at U.S. nuclear reactors is much higher than it was at Fukushima.

    And what of Fukushima? Like 9/11 what is known as 3/11 was also an “inside” job carried out by a bunch of madmen who now run the planet and are evil and irresponsible to say the least. This has been reported on by Benjamin Fulford ever since Fukushima occurred:

    Obama Implicated in Nuclear and Tsunami Terrorist Attack Against Japan

    As well as by Jim Stone:

    Nuclear Sabotage at Fukushima

      All sensationalism, especially the accident in Arkansas,which was a drop of the generator during a maintence outage,nothing to do with the Reactor.The oil spill was most likely the generator lubrication system damaged due to the drop of the 150 ton generator.All of the other headlines are stated falsely/broad brushed.The only thing factual is you reference to the Nuclear Detonations from the 50’s/60’s.Ben Fulford is a kook and has no authority in this subject.Fukushima is an on going disaster of Biblical Proportions,but it’s not causing thyroid cancer on the West Coast.Mr Mangano has an agenda(Anti-Nuc).Every thing is sensationalised and made to sound/read the impending end of the world at the hands of Nuclear Power.Make no mistake extreme respect for the technology is required to operate these plants safetly.I’m speaking from my 31+ years experience and knowledge working at a Nuclear Power facility.
