This week – we learned that the manager of Japan’s crippled Fukishima nuclear plant – Masao Yoshida – died from cancer, his illnesses reportedly had nothing to do with the radiation levels at the Fukushima plant that he worked in around the clock alongside a group of men referred to as the “Fukushima Fifty” trying to contain the nuclear crisis in the days and months following the eathquake and tsunami.
But – although Mr. Yoshida’s cancer can’t be traced back to Fukushima – how many others in Japan may contract cancer in the future that CAN be traced back to Fukushima? On Tuesday – radioactive contamination of groundwater at the plant surged to levels 90-times greater than they were just three days ago, so what effect is the ongoing Fukushima nuclear crisis having in Japan – and what lessons should we be learning in the United States? Kevin Kamps, the radioactive waste watchdog at Beyond Nuclear joins us to answer these questions.Help us spread the ANTIDOTE to corporate propaganda.
