Fukushima 3 Years After: Thyroid Cancer Cases Among Children Rising by By Esther Tanquintic-Misa | March 10, 2014 3:12 PM EST

“Cases of thyroid cancer among children residing in Fukushima have grown steadily since the disastrous March 2011 incident. Citizens have all but lost hope and confidence in their government. And three years after, no one has been made accountable for the supposed worst nuclear disaster since the 1986 Chernobyl.

To say that Fukushima’s children have been robbed of their childhood and right to play and explore the outside world is an understatement….Doctors have seen a rising number in the cases thyroid cancer in children and young adults in Fukushima. In February, the cases of thyroid cancer in individuals aged between 18 and below jumped to 75, where 33 were confirmed to have cancer.

On Sunday, thousands joined anti-nuclear protests to signify their loss of trust against the government as the latter moves to reignite the country’s 50 idled nuclear reactors….So far, 254,000 out of 375,000 Fukushima children have been tested for possible cancer ailments and will continue to be screened in their entire lifetime…”

    Hello.
    There appear to be some small errors on the page, and am hoping to help by pointing them out.

    The first two links resolve as “URL not found”.
    Google Translate (of all things) suggested http://ganjoho.jp/pro/statistics/graph_db_index.html but that cannot be found either.
    The Internet archive has http://web.archive.org/web/20131207132939/http://ganjoho.jp/pro/statistics/graph_db_index.html and an english version of that page linked there.
    The Internet Archive retains a copy of that spreadsheet too.

    It appears that the bottom rows of Chart #3 repeat data from the top of Chart #2.
    Also, the link at the bottom redirects to http://au.ibtimes.com/articles/542493/20140310/fukushima-thyroid-cancer-children-trust-disaster-chernobyl.htm

    Thank you.

    Checking back to see if you received my reply. To err is human, and computers can magnify err. If it disappeared into the digital ether, am prepared to rewrite, if you like.
