The real health cost of Fukushima

Fukushima schoolkids are fat, according to official figures. These are real, identifiable, quantifiable adverse effects, rather than some wooly “I’m sure it’s 100s times more” that the doom and gloom merchants try to peddle.

NHK covered the news, and in the graphs fatties were double the national average in certain age groups! They also looked at a mother and her three kids living in Fukushima city, and the tone of the interview went that she was blaming herself for keeping her kids indoors and limiting their outdoor play. The kids were sitting around not talking, engrossed in their smartphone games.

It does make me angry that there are still the “evacuate all kids” loons (right up to diet member Taro Yamamoto) on the loose, yet they never take responsibility for their actions.

    Me too. It’s quite weird interacting with these people. I feel like they’re six-year-old kids who don’t get responsibility yet, but who’ve managed to sneak into the skin of an adult. On here and elswewhere, countless times they get presented with quality evidence, for example, that fear-mongering causes large upticks in abortions, or alcoholism, or child behaviour problems, and they don’t even bother to address the question, pretending it’s fantasy or worse, a ha-ha-pull-the-other-one comedy.

    How much up your own arse do you have to be not to care that you might be doing such horrible damage to other people?

  2. The temerity of these mothers is unbelievable. To think that they would stop their children from playing outside just because one of the worst nuclear accidents in history has happened on their doorstep, quite honestly it beggars belief.

    And all the while stuffing their innocent offspring full of radiation-packed bananas. The world has gone mad.

    And don’t get me started on that Debito guy while I am riled up.
    Some of us actually like living here you know.

    I see what you did there. It’s always good to find comedy in a situation like this. Well done you.
