Forest Near Fukushima Is Now Riddled With Mutations

fukushima_falloutBy Joshua Krause

As the 5 year anniversary of the Fukushima earthquake looms, the Japanese government is busy decontaminating the area, in the hopes that they will soon be able to lift the evacuation orders for the villages that surround Fukushima’s nuclear power plant. Unfortunately the region in question is probably still contaminated, and may remain so for the foreseeable future.

According to a recent report posted by Greenpeace, which cited several international peer-reviewed studies, the forest near Fukushima is beginning to show signs of radiation-induced mutations. As seasonal rains wash away contaminants in residential areas, the forest is slowly becoming a “radiation reservoir.” The report found an “apparent increases in growth mutations of fir trees … heritable mutations in pale blue grass butterfly populations” and “DNA-damaged worms in highly contaminated areas.”

The author of the report also added that “In the interest of human rights — especially for victims of the disaster — it is ever more urgent to ensure accurate and complete information is publicly available and the misleading rhetoric of these entities challenged.”

Despite the evidence, researchers and doctors have cautioned against drawing any conclusions, and suggested that more research needs to be done on the long-term effects of radiation on the environment and on the population of Fukushima.

    Come on we want pictures.

      Yes indeed, we do.

    How about the Indian Nuclear Plant mess, is not the cancer cluster an example of mutating cells in the human body? We already know that radiation causes mutation. What we need is a plan to reverse the process of the damage from radiation and the waste materials: which is what? The transmutation of the elements is possibly the key for the materials in question; however for the human body we need to investigate solutions such as Spectro-Chrome Metry and other alternatives (Royal Rife generators and diet) that may save lives. The Nuclear Industry just wants to stall as they know that will reduce their liability from insurance claims; if and when the slowed connection is finally officially made with connectivity of cause and effect between radiation deaths, injuries and mutations. There is also the problem of how much insurance monies are available for claims as opposed to the amount of indemnification the industry has buffered themselves with through there tactics of denial, payoffs and other back room deals.

    while the food supplies dwindle in the pacific more mutations will become public. I grew up close to Astoria,the mouth of the Columbia river. My brother still lives there. The whole coast line has dead sea life on the beach.

    “Probably still contaminated”? YA THINK? How would it become un-contaminated? If TEPCO had decontaminated it, we’d never hear the end of it.

    Never let yourself forget that Fukushima was Not a ‘natural’ disaster, it was sabotage by the Tribe – probably one of the worst crimes against humanity ever commited. Jim Stone Freelance has info on how it was done. But as a start, to confirm I’m not talking bullshit, look at any video showing the tsunami first hitting land. It will show the wave inundating an undamaged country. Zero earthquake effects from a supposed 9.0 ‘devastating’ quake.

    I read an article last week concerning the Indian Point nuke plant in upstate NY.
    Bottom line of story was, , , 20 million people within 50 miles of said plant.

    With no chance of an emergency evacuation. ” no chance ”
    I thought it was a charming article though. . . .

    Has anyone in Japan ever studied half-lives of irradiated materials? “Cleaning up”? That’s a joke, right?
