Editor’s Comment: As this article notes, governments lie by default, and only acknowledge a sliver of the truth when they absolutely have to. Unfortunately this individual’s death amounts to the proverbial canary in the coalmine – the first officially recognized death, on top of many others that were not acknowledged for their ties to Fukushima.
How many more deaths, counted or uncounted, will there be? And how long until this crisis can truly be abated… decades? Fifty years? A century?
Japan’s Fukushima Lies Blow Up With Admission Of First Radiation Cancer Casualty
by Tyler Durden
The main reason why Japan has been able to successfully push the 2011 Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster far out of the public eye, is for the simple reason that the tragic fallout from said disaster would take many years to materialize: after all, it takes a long time between the initial irradiation to the first cancer symptoms, to the sad terminal outcome.
However, for the biggest, and most criminal, cover up by a Japanese government in recent history, the irradiated chickens are coming home to roost and earlier today Japan finally acknowledged the first “possible casualty” from radiation at the wrecked Fukushima nuclear power plant, a worker who was diagnosed with cancer after the crisis broke out in 2011.
According to Reuters, “the health ministry’s recognition of radiation as a possible cause may set back efforts to recover from the disaster, as the government and the nuclear industry have been at pains to say that the health effects from radiation have been minimal.”
A more accurate way of putting is that after lying for nearly 5 years that there is nothing to worry about and people should just go about their business, and that Fukushima is nothing to worry about, an unknown number of people were being exposed to deadly radiation, and only now are the consequences of the government’s lies starting to appear.
Reuters also adds that this announcement may also add to compensation payments that had reached more than 7 trillion yen ($59 billion) by July this year. That, however for those morbidly wondering, is bullish for stocks: it means Japan will need to issue more debt, thus giving the BOJ even more debt to monetize, thus pushing the Nikkei higher.
Reuters has more on Japan’s lies:
Hundreds of deaths have been attributed to the chaos of evacuations during the crisis and because of the hardship and mental trauma refugees have experienced since then, but the government had said that radiation was not a cause.
The male worker in his 30s, who was employed by a construction contractor, worked at Tokyo Electric Power Co’s Fukushima Daiichi plant and other nuclear facilities, a health ministry official said.
And yet, even when it partially admits the truth, Japan is still lying: according to the Japanese ministry official, of total radiation exposure of 19.8 millisieverts (mSv), the worker received a dose of 15.7 (mSv) between October 2012 and December 2013 working at Fukushima. As the pursits will repeatedly point out, this exposure is well lower than the annual 50 mSv limit for nuclear industry workers, suggesting that the government was not only lying about the risk of death by radiation, but also about the total exposure innocent civilians had been exposed to while believing the government’s lies.
The good news is that with Japan’s blatant disregard for human life now exposed, Japan’s civilians can finally take the protective measures they should have taken years ago.
The bad news, is that this is only the first tragic death resulting from Fukushima (with countless many more covered up). And now that the government has admitted the truth (which it likely did as it had no other choice as the bodies were piling up rapidly), expect hundreds if not thousands more Fukushima-related casualties to “make the news” in the months ahead.

We have been lied to by most any government, company, and politican…
Sould we be suprised by this???
Eppe – you’re absolutely correct – it is why I question everything, regardless the nature of the topic.
I even question my long time beliefs all the time.
I also encourage my girls to do the same.
Always searching for the true truth, hard to find now days..
Be well all…
Whats that? Its been so long since we have found or gotten the truth that lies are much more common,
Is just a shame
Mystery deaths in Sierra Leone spread fear of Ebola relapses
“Doctors and health officials in Sierra Leone told Reuters that a handful of mystery deaths among discharged patients may also be types of Ebola relapses, stirring fear that the deadly virus may last far longer than previously thought in the body, causing other potentially lethal complications.
Diagnoses have not been made, partly because of a lack of relevant medical training and insufficient equipment for detecting a virus that CAN HIDE in inaccessible corners of the body – such as the spinal fluid or eyeball.”
Live Ebola virus was detected in 20 survivors treated in Europe and the United States, including nurse Pauline Cafferkey.
“In Cafferkey’s case, the Ebola virus in her brain caused meningitis.
Dr. Dan Kelly, founder of non-profit organization Wellbody Alliance who has worked on Ebola in Sierra Leone, estimates that relapsing Ebola might affect 10 percent of all recovered patients.”
“In West Africa it (relapsing Ebola) is mostly undiagnosed, hardly treated and people are certainly dying of it.”
FTW, same here, regardless of the topic. Give me truth over propaganda any day.
SHTF is not going to be glamorous. You wont have much opportunity for gallantry in combat.
You might be a beggar in SHTF. You might be in the center of the hurricane where it’s calm. I hope. People are going to fight over resources and you will see crime and anger and possibly violence.
It might be tomorrow or in a few years. It might be suddenly or gradual. I think it will last a long time or be permanent.
We’re all as ready as we can be. This is what we’ve been doing on this site for the past few years.
I wish you all the best after the real balloon goes up.
Here’s some real music for you boomers. Hum the riff on your way to work. If you even have a fucking job.
Tune into Fukushimawatch.com to keep abreast.
DO YOU EVEN KNOW THAT THERE ARE MASSIVE ANTI ISLAM RALLIES SPANNING THE GLOBE OCCURING RIGHT NOW?
IN AMERICA, OPEN CARRY PROTESTERS HAVE BEEN PICKETING ABOUT 20 MOSQUES.
The bad news is nobody will ever get the truth unless there is a real “leak” of information. By then most of the casualties will be dead, all corporations involved wiil be bankrupt, and a new govit will be in place to say “sorry’, vote for these new idiots to fix in the future.
I monitored and took a few precautions during the initial release months, but there was a reason the sampling helicopters on the west coast never released the information. There was nothing extreme initially, but the bioaccumulation is the major concern. It circled the globe.
The fear, I believe, was that if they announced like they should have, that there would have been a panic and people evacuating because the general pop is is now retarded. Given my spelling, i am too.
Soon to be on our shores. Correction it’s already is here we are being lied to daily about 99.9% of the time. Time grows short.
Why don’t our people on the Pacific coast gather up all the dead creatures from the shore line and hold rallies at the three coast state capitals? Plan on camping out for 30 days. Dump the rotting radioactive fish on the capital streets, the news will have to cover it. It would also help if the people would have experts on radioactivity there ready to address the news media. Interview real radiation experts scientists, not the hundreds of alternative internet media shysters hawking a book or website.
Northwest Wild Products is Issuing a Voluntary Recall on all Canned Seafood Products Because of a Possible Health Risk 10/20/2015 03:16 PM EDT
Northwest Wild Products of Astoria, Oregon is voluntarily recalling ALL canned black cod, salmon, sardines, steelhead, sturgeon, tuna, and Razor clams with any codes starting with â€œOCâ€� because it has the potential to be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, a bacterium which can cause life-threatening illness or death. Consumers are warned not to use the product even if it does not look or smell spoiled.
Nuclear power: Perfectly Safe.
Ignore the tumors behind the curtain.
It is hard to believe it has been four years since the disaster.
Remember the US Navy sailors that got radiated?
…………..R E A D m y L-I-P-S……
The hippies want them all shut down and they oppose lng coal and anything really. This is why the electric rates are out of control. Nobody wants to talk about that though. Just shut down all power plants and hug trees. Think about all the reactors out there that have provided clean safe huge amounts of electric.
I disagree. Electric rates are out of control because nuclear energy is the MOST expensive source of radiation on the planet, and the most dangerous.
“Health Effects Have Been Minimal”? GMAFB!
Minimal to those who haven’t got cancer…….yet.
Im quite sure it will eat holes in me, all the years of working with and around chemicals,
It is what it is, everybody dies someday.
To this one person who died, the effects were not minimal.
You will never get any royalty to understand anything like this.
There have been many other deaths and health effects from Fukushima radiation:
(1) Over 130 Fukushima children have thyroid cancer
(2) An independent journalist in Japan reported in 2013 that over 300 policemen and 50 firemen died from Fukushima radiation
(3) Also reported was that over 4,000 Fukushima workers died from Fukushima radiation
(4) Nuns in Fukushima reported increases in birth defects and miscarriages attributed to Fukushima radiation exposure
Japan passed a “State Secrets” law to suppress information coming out of Japan about Fukushima, and doctors are pressured not to mention a correlation between new cancers and Fukushima radiation exposure.
There are also reports of over 1,000 school-age children dying of HEART attacks, suspected of being caused by Cesium137 radiation exposure, which affects the heart.
See ENENEWS, NUCLEARHOTSEAT, ENFORMABLE — just a few sources reporting the truth about Fukushima.
This is important —>
Everyone here should know about a new proposal being considered by the U.S. NRC that would allow you and your children to be exposed to as much radiation as a nuclear worker!
This is not spam! This is real and this is serious.
This Petition explains it better than I can.
Read this and if you agree, please sign it!
At this point hippies by the millions would be the only thing to save the earth and the humanity upon it. Too many people still brainwashed about cannabis, oooh REEFER MADNESS. Them filthy drugged out hippies are the cause of all that sucks. Not hardly, big pharma and big bullshit control your brain. At least the hippies would be united, not this fragmented divided and conquered crapshow presently occupying the globe. Cannabis can save humanity, healthwise, energywise, end of warmongeringwise, end of corruptpoliticianswise, end of hatewise, end of destruction of the environmentwise, end of food shortagewise, peace on earthwise. Why do you think it is illegal with few exceptions? It would destroy this satanic greedy psychopathic entity known as the Super Capitalistic New World Order. Case closed. What a bunch of dumb asses!
Did they ever get it under control?
‘Been a SHTF “lurker” for a while and have appreciated the SHTF articles and most (not all) of the posts. I’ve also been following the on-gong Fuku disaster, which is truly an extinction life event, for the past few years. Some of the posters here have got it right: Tepco and Japan.gov–aided by the US and the nuclear cabal/corporate banksters–have been lying and covering up the true magnitude of the massive radiation contamination that happened on 3/11 and has been continuing ever since, unabated and getting worse with each passing day. Note that this will NEVER be “fixed”. The US West Coast received the Fuku fall-out as did the entire Northern Hemisphere soon after 3/11, so it is already “here”. The Pacific Ocean and sea life are dying as the bio-accumulated radiation contamination works its way up the food chain. There’s so much more to say on this topic, but I’ll lay out just a few things to consider personally, in no particular order.
First, this single death is just a peephole into the nuclear hell that is upon us. Many more have and will die, along with increased cancers, disabilities, deformities and stillbirths, due to the Fukushima disaster and other nuclear-caused radiation exposures and ingestion. Think Agenda 21 or whatever, this and the next nuclear “accident” waiting to happen, and the next, will advance the depopulation agenda and move towards one corporatized world gov’t. No countries, no religion, just greed, money and power for those that survive this nuclear holocaust. 400+ aging nuclear reactors worldwide, about 100 in the US and NO SAFE PLACE to store the nuclear waste which is deadly at the atomic (DNA) level for thousands of years. Nuclear never was, never will be safe, controllable, economical, or “green”.
Next, MSM is owned by the banksters/nuke cabal so no need in the US for a states secrets law as the “sheeple” will be distracted by sports, DWTS, Kardashians, war, etc. and the latest electronic gadget or phone (aka, tracker).
Prep the best that you can to prevent your and yours from radioactive contamination from exposure or ingestion. Time, distance and shielding will help reduce exposure (look it up). Fortify your immune system. Peel soft-skinned produce and or soak/scrub produce in solution of baking soda and distilled water prior to eating; and/or grow your own under cover when possible. DO NOT EAT ANY SEAFOOD from the Pacific and NOTHING from Japan. The US food safety regs are 12 times more LAX than Japan’s, so they can send fruits, veggies, rice, seafood, etc. to the US will not pass Japan’s food safety standards. Note: Japan, the US, Canada, other countries quietly raised the “safe” levels of radiation contamination in food and water soon after 3/11. The proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership will only make it harder (and illegal?) to track where your food comes from. One more tip: get the potassium iodide (Ki) NOW to have on hand to protect your thyroid in the event of radioactive iodine 131 exposure/ingestion. Ki will will not be available when (not if) there’s another “accident”. You can also get a decent but fairly inexpensive radiation monitor for your home so you can become familiar with what is “normal” and when there’s been another nuclear release (stay indoors, stay out of the rain/precipitation, leave your shoes at the door…). Don’t count on the EPA or other gov’t agencies to keep you informed or be truthful. EPA turned off most of the monitors on the West Coast soon after the 3/11 Fuku disaster. They’re on again, sporadically, manipulated and turned off when rads appear to be increasing (again) with fresh/ongoing nuclear rad releases.
I agree with another poster: check out ene news dot com, others as noted for truthful information. Get educated on the topic and update your prepping plans, daily life and supplies for various nuclear disaster (slow or fast-moving) scenarios.
But please be respectful. Too many are quick to blame or dismiss other preppers as “liberals/Dems,” “hippies,” “feminists”, “environmentalists/tree huggers”, “non-Christians”, etc. IMO, these are just divide-and-conquer tactics by TBTB. We’ll need to get past these labels if we’re to gather authentic, caring, principled and AWAKE human beings if we’re ever to survive as a species.
Sorry for the long post. Admin, pls. keep up the good work. Stay strong, folks. Very dark days ahead. Blessings all.
