What is of significance here is that radiation dangers are being taken seriously by health authorities.
In addition, if deaths are resulting in the US, how much more health devastation must be occurring closer to, and inside, Japan.
Health issues have not been readily admitted by the Japanese authorities and press. Perhaps just now, they are being forced to admit that issues exist, and that some action is deemed to necessary.

But they are still claiming safe environments where they are probably are known to be not safe. For example, emissions are still occurring: http://fukushima-diary.com/2012/01/water-level-is-still-decreasing-at-reactor-4/

Now, from ‘Natural Health News’:
“Study: Fukushima killed at least 14,000 people in the US, mostly babies, in weeks following disaster”, by Jonathan Benson.
(NaturalNews) For the very first time, a scientific study published in a peer-reviewed journal has come up with a solid estimate of the total number of US deaths caused by the Fukushima nuclear disaster in the weeks following it. Epidemiologist Joseph Mangano, MPH, MBA, and his colleagues say that, based on compiled data, at least 14,000 people in the US were killed during the 14 weeks following the Fukushima catastrophe — and the majority of these deaths were in children under age one.
Published in the International Journal of Health Services, Mangano’s study looked at both infant and adult death rates during the time when Fukushima occurred, as well as in previous months and years. During the 14 weeks prior to Fukushima, for instance, infant deaths had been declining by 8.37 percent, while in the weeks following the disaster they increased by 1.8 percent. Among adults, a 4.46 percent death rate was observed in the weeks after Fukushima, compared to 2.34 percent, which is about half that rate, a year prior.
“This study of Fukushima health hazards is the first to be published in a scientific journal,” said Mangano. “It raises concerns, and strongly suggests that health studies continue, to understand the true impact of Fukushima in Japan and around the world. Findings are important to the current debate of whether to build new reactors, and how long to keep aging ones in operation.”Learn more: (Source)http://www.naturalnews.com/034586_Fukushima_USA_fatalities.html#ixzz1ivT4e9IG
Let us be extremely grateful that here in Australia, we are further away from the natural movements of airborne radiation particles, than is the US and even Europe. Read the ‘Related Articles’ “Plutonium has circled the Earth..”
Let us learn from these issues, not just what is happening, but also that we cannot rely on the general media for accurate and complete reporting.
