Fukushima Fallout: New Report Expects up to 1 Million Cancer Deaths

In a new report published by Fairewinds Energy Education (FEE), “Cancer on the Rise in Post-Fukushima Japan,” we learn that that the ongoing multi-core nuclear meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi plant has produced approximately 230 times higher-than-normal thyroid cancers in Fukushima Prefecture, and could result in as many as one million more cancers due to the incident that happened in March of 2011.

Five years later and we are still getting a grip on how catastrophic Fukushima truly was to this planet and its people.

Highly esteemed Japanese medical professionals and Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) confirm a direct link to the elevated number of cancers in Japan to the Daiichi plant’s meltdown. The report details how heavy radioactive discharges from the site will be the cause of ongoing cancer cases throughout the surrounding area.

TEPCO recently confirmed in a press release that workers exposed to the radiation from the attempted clean up over the past 4 years have developed leukemia, and medical professionals confirm that the incidence of thyroid cancer in the Fukushima Prefecture have grown to 230 the normal rate. (TEPCO was required to measure workers for radiation they received while working on the site.)

In the above video, you can watch Arnie Gunderson, Chief Engineer, discuss the true fallout expected from Fukushima.
