Dear Friends,

As the first article below shows, Doctors in Japan are being prevented from reporting radiation-related illnesses. Fukushima Daiichi, the nuclear reactor complex wrecked by the earthquake/tsunami of March 2011, continues to spew radioactivity into the air and groundwater- the rate has increased by an order of magnitude since the recent typhoons. What are the health consequences to the Japanese people? We don't know, because, as the first article below says, Japanese doctors are prevented from reporting radiation-related diseases.

Despite the danger to his license, Dr. Mita Shigeru continues to publish his experiences. He moved his clinic out of Tokyo last spring because of the radiation, and recently published the second article below, which gives specifics on radiation levels and illnesses.

Given the suppression of information, which will intensify when the Japanese state secrets law goes into effect in December 2014 http://thediplomat.com/2014/10/japans-state-secret-law-unmolested/ International pressure is needed, to reveal the truth about Fukushima's deadly effects. Please sign these two petitions:

First article:


We think of radiation as a cancer causing thing, but it also causes many other ailments. Much higher incidences of a whole range of illnesses than they had in 2010, the year before the accident" We're also working with doctors in Japan, and some brave doctors are saying that they've been threatened -- that their hospital rights have been threatened -- if you tell your patient this illness is radiation related you'll lose your right to practice and things like that. So there's enormous pressure on the medical community to tell the patients that what they're experiencing is not at all related to radiation. The key is statistics, and the question is when will the statistics be released for mortality, morbidity, and general illnesses" We're not seeing the data. The medical community now has to file every report that it writes with the IAEA, the International Atomic Energy Agency, before it's issued. So if you're a hospital, and you've got mortality data, you're not allowed to issue that to the public until those reports have been cleared by the IAEA. Well, Article II of the IAEA charter is to promote nuclear power. So even if the hospital was conscientious -- there's a lot of political pressure not to be -- but even if it was conscientious, there's another step in the process, and they've got to clear an IAEA hurdle before those numbers are released. It's truly frightening, the pressure the medical community is undergoing in Japan. Very few of them are willing to tell the truth.
