[quote:Chrit:MV8yMDU3ODIyXzM0NzE3NTE5XzNGQzMyNzg3] For peopel who do not know, check my first log on date. I am here becasue this personaly affected people I care for. I know people who can never return home because of this event. [b]Here is the goverment link. The results of this study will be released the [u]first quarter of next year[/u].[/b] http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/?term=10.1289/ehp.119-a428a [i]What we do know. [/i] Snip; The estimated lifetime radiation doses among the children are still low, but they do exist, the National Institute of Radiological Sciences (NIRS) said at an international symposium in Chiba Prefecture on July 10. [b]The findings run counter to the government’s assertion that they effectively received zero thyroid gland doses.[/b] [b]However, the government has no plans to notify the children’s parents of the latest analysis results, citing their large error margins and the fear of causing anxiety.[/b] "Researchers derived them for scientific purposes," a government source said. "[b]We have no plan, now or in the future, to notify individuals of their doses[/b]." The government measured the hourly thyroid doses of 1,080 children under 16 years old in Fukushima Prefecture from March 24 to 30 last year, shortly after a disaster began to unfold at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant on March 11. Five months later, the government's Nuclear Emergency Response Headquarters told the parents of 55 percent of the children that they had zero internal thyroid doses, which included doses below the detection limit of the testing equipment. A team of researchers led by Toshikazu Suzuki, a section head at the NIRS Research Center for Radiation Emergency Medicine, conducted an independent study of the same measurement data. The team estimated the lifetime thyroid doses of the 1,080 children at 12 millisieverts on average and 42 millisieverts at the maximum. The dose estimates were 30 millisieverts or more for four of the subjects. [b]The children tested were from at least 10 municipalities, and the dose estimates tended to be higher for those from Iitate and Iwaki.[/b] Experts say the lifetime thyroid doses, which indicate impact on health, are low because none of the children exceeded the International Atomic Energy Agency's reference level for the intake of stable iodine tablets to block thyroid irradiation. The level is 50 millisieverts in the case of 1-year-old infants. [b]Last year, the government calculated lifetime doses for some of the children with high hourly doses, but notified the parents only about the hourly dose values.[/b] http://ajw.asahi.com/article/0311disaster/fukushima/AJ201207110058 [color=red]So we have the government of japan admitting they lied and reinforcing they will continue to with hold info as to not "cause anxiety" in the general population, their quote not mine. It will be a decade before they have to tell the truth, everyone involved is part of the study and the study must go on.[/color] [/quote]
Asahi: Now almost 100,000 Fukushima kids with thyroid problems, parents concerned — Whether that’s “alarmingly high” it’s difficult to say.....
[...] The Fukushima prefectural government [...] survey found that 40 percent of 96,000 or so children for whom test results are available developed thyroid gland problems, such as nodules, or lumps, and cysts. [...]
...funny.. they don't know if it is 'CONCERNING'... because nothing like this has ever been tested......

straight up... they should have sent the children away more than a year ago.......
