Fukushima Children Showing Thyroid Cancer

Subtitle: Radiation-induced thyroid cancer rises among children

“The people, including children, are living in a highly contaminated area adjacent to the Fukushima plant. There have been some surveys that looked at what the consequences for kids will be. According to the survey, the past few years have seen an increase in diabetes, thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer among local children. Japan's Mainichi newspaper recently published a report which said that one in four children living in the disaster-hit regions needs mental care over problematic behavior. And the region will not be safe again for generations,”  -- Voice of Russia  see link

Nuclear power proponents insist that nuclear plants are safe, no one is harmed by their operation, yet studies like the one cited above clearly show that people are exposed to cancer-causing radiation.   In addition, stress over living in a region known to be contaminated with radioactive fallout from the meltdowns of 2011 requires mental care.
