    Indeed Guy. The majority of people on here who are anti nuclear don't try and understand the consequences. They've read Enenews and believe that completely yet ignore all of the scientific reports because of an underlying belief that everything associated with nuclear is evil. Even though many many more will die from the decisions to switch back to fossil fuels than have died form this nuclear crisis. And that has been as apparent now as it was in 2011.

    Liarsnfools, which is why I never believe what the government says and always look for independent scientific reviews:

    http://www.nature.com/news/fukushima-data-show-rise-and-fall-in-food-radioactivity-1.17016

    Covers it in detail. It also highlights the lack of broad leaved vegetables and milk products that entered the market, because of what was learned from Chernobyl. What is fascinating though is that when someone spent six weeks only eating locally grown produce that is prone to absorb more radiation and drank only tap water showed no traces of radioactivity. Whilst I'm sure that many will say six weeks is nothing. But that was six weeks of exclusively Fukushima food. No one on here eats purely Fukushima food, in fact most, will actively avoid it. Yet there is still an unscientific fear.

    Can you stop trying to link Chernobyl to Fukushima as it shows a total lack of knowledge. the reasons for high thyroid cancers in Chernobyl was primarily due to the fact that the soviets continued to allow milk, broad leaved vegetables etc to enter the food chain. That and the facts that more radiation was released over a larger population created the major issues with chernobyl.

    It's been noted in any number of independen reports that this didnt happen in Japan. It has also been reported that the produce from Fukushima is back to pre disaster levels.

    A lot of data suggests that Fukushima produce is back to pre accident levels. In fact it's been suggested that it was pretty close to normal within 5 months.

    There were no plans to evacuate Tokyo. Kan asked what the worst case scenario would be and what would that mean. What your article fails to mention is what that worst case scenario was and how it would get there

    This article on the other hand, covers it in detail.

    http://www.slate.com/articles/healthandscience/science/2013/09/fukushimadisasternewinformationaboutworstcase_scenarios.html

    It's a good article for a number of reasons, firstly on page 3 it covers in detail the media confusion that you have alluded to but mostly because it shows exactly that the situation was known from a very early stage and the risk to Tokyo was none. That Obama was aware of it and it was studied by international and independent scientists should also help those sceptics who refuse to believe anything that Japanese scientists say.

    What it does say, for those who don't have the time to read it is: the scientists concluded that radiation in Tokyo would come nowhere close to levels requiring an evacuation, even in the event that Fukushima Dai-ichi underwent the worst plausible meltdown combined with extremely unfavorable wind and weather patterns.

    However it doesn't say anything about quick sand.

    Yes, but it was never going to happen. There's plenty of evidence to show that the worst case scenario that has been bandied about as being a realistic proposition was never actually going to happen.

    It was never, ever going to be game over. not even close

    Here is the deal, just imagine of the winds had been strongly blowing to the SW on 3/11 & brought lots more radiation to the Kanto area.......................... Japan would likely have been GAME OVER!!!

    No it wouldn't. No matter how many times people claim to the contrary science proves otherwise.

    No, it is common sense, plain and simple; the same way a person who is depressed, to sickness levels or not, knows, as EVERYONE knows, there are suicide hotlines and help available.

    Which just about sums up what you know on the subject. tens of thousands of people a year kill themselves because of depression but they ALL know that there's help out there. You have no idea. Absolutely no idea.

    You condemn others for jumping to her defence because they don't know the full story. Yet you immediately condemn her and others previously without knowing any more of the story.

    at least won't entertain the possibility that some if not all of these women know exactly what they were doing.

    Wow...-8 and not one person has tried to show that fukushima is as bad as chernobyl or will lead to simliar health problems. I guess googling milk and chernobyl answered that question.

    Now here's something else that will get marked down, again because it's the truth and disagrees with everything you've heard from people with no expertise on the subject

    In 2011 only 3.3% of food produced in Fukushima exceeded Japanese standards (which are substantially stricter than the rest of the world). In most cases within 5 months the contamination in vegetables was back to near normal levels.

    as time goes on there is more and more evidence that the biggest health hazards caused by the nuclear disaster have been caused by fear and by the decisions to replace nuclear fuel with fossil fuels.

    Linking Cher novel to Fukushima...4 years after the fact and with a plethora of information about...

    Perhaps you can demonstrate the systematic poisoning of Fukushima food in the same way that the soviets did. You know...examples of highly toxic milk that was fed to children on the immediate days after the explosions and the weeks afterwards.

    It's not nuclear that is destroying the Fukushima agriculture. it's ignorance.

    Ignoring the problem of fossil fuel waste you do realise that if the high level nuclear waste was stored end to end in the US it would cover one football field about 10 yards high. And as much as the anti nuclear groups would have you believe it's not a major problem. And the new, modern reactor are in a far better position to deal with it.

    What's 'interesting' about the study that said 24% blah blah is that it was first released in 2008 and journalists have just rehashed the exact same quotes to make it relevant to 2014

    There's plenty of evidence on the Web to show that the US has the highest percentage of mental health problems, three times more than Japan according to the WHO.

    the fact is not that 24% of Japanese adults have mental illness, only that they have suffered it in the past. The difference is significant.

    Indeed. Kind of like saying 100% of people have cold because they have previously suffered from it.

    So of that 8000 Sq km, how much of it is uninhabitable?

    the answer is a smallish area of land.

    Indeed. I no longer live in Japan but as you are aware my stance hasn't changed from March 11 when I was living there. My stance was the same when I was making regular trips to Fukushima and my locale shouldn't negate my opinion.

    And yes, japan is on the ring of fire. Doesn't change anything about the fact that modern nuclear plants are Safer. Doesn't change anything about onagawa either.

    And what is the overwhelming evidence of Dai I chi. When it went wrong nobody died and a smallish area of land is in liveable

    Now just compare that to coal gas and oil. When it goes right people die and land becomes in liveable. Not to mention the radiation that it produces and spreads around the world.

    There are any number of studies on the dangers of fossil fuels Dai Ochi will never come anywhere near that.

    The population has had plenty of opportunities it is to prove that they are against nuclear power. That the LVPD won the last election comfortably would suggest they aren't.

    There's plenty of information out there to suggest why modern nuclear power plants are the way to go. But it seems that the contributors of JT don't care about the environment, they just want to keep burning fossil fuels until a point that there is sufficient renewable or until we run out. Guaranteed deaths and illnesses...more people will die because of the switch back to fossil fuels than from the nuclear incident. plenty of information around to show this.

    But I will get marked down because nuclear is bad m'kay and no amount of overwhelming evidence will change that.

    I've said it does not excuse killing others,

    The Infanticide Law has been on the UKs statute since 1922. These days, it's highly unlikely for a mother to be sentenced to prison for the death of an infanct child.

    It may be your opinion that PPD does not cause infanticde but the law in many countries disagrees.

    If you don't understand how PND/PPD can lead to infanticide then you are dismissing it.

    And there is a HUGE difference in what the co-pilot would appear to have done and what this lady did. And quite frankly I'm surprised that anyone with the ability to string a coherent sentence together could actually link the two.

    You guys want to talk about suicide and depression and address the fact that there is not enough help out there, I'm with you 100%. But you want to dismiss the FACT that she killed her baby -- that's just disgusting. No wonder so many people do it! They have you guys to jump up and defend them no matter what.

    You're dismissing PPD. Something that is a medical fact. And, on occasion, leads to infanticide. Something, which I've stated elsewhere isn't regarded as a crime in numerous countries.

    That you so vehemently deny this as a feasible possibility does speak volumes. And I just wonder how you are qualified to make that statement. Or, do you just think that because she's Japanese that it can't be because of PPD?

    None of us know her situation. But to say she didn't deserve a baby, without any idea of her background is not arrogant, it's downright disgusting. The baby DID deserve to live an that they didn't is an absolute tragedy. But so is the fact that the woman who gave it life was also the woman who took it away.

    Wow, Dr. Disillusioned. I hadn't realised we had an eminent expert in our midst.

    Post Natal Depression comes from society, not child birth.

    Well I would expect there to be a number of very embarrassed professionals all over the world who are going to be pretty embarassed come Monday morning. Imagine all those law books as well that will need to be ripped up as well.
