Speaking the right thing is hard because they criticize.

I was praised today.

“amateur web site promoting baseless fear mongering.Hang your head in shame.”

I think this person wanted to mean he can not find my posts on TV.

Maybe he thinks that’s baseless because TV does not report it. or maybe news paper.

This morning,before Tepco announced about the acute leukemia,we were talking about
how to deal with the contaminated soil,how to protect us from strontium,and also tried to
figure out what the camera guy tried to mean on Twitter.

On the other hand,TV broadcast the show all about your armpit hair,at least for 1 hour.

Which one do you think is rational ?

I was a believer of traditional media until 311.

However,it didn’t take me more than a day to change my mind.

Now the main stream of news is Twitter and other SNS on the internet.

It’s difficult to sense the truth out of junk information.

Maybe that’s why they hate it,because they can’t distinguish truth and lie,because they are

They have been relying on mass media like spoon feed for too long. They can not wake up

We can not go back to sleep anymore.

In a car park near JCO,nuclear fuel processing company,they found a radioactive
waste,which has 300bq/kg of cesium.

However,the “safe” limit of food,which is served for elementary school students for sure,is

This is pure madness. Japanese government is trying to kill us all.

but I know it would happen in other countries too,such as US,France,England,etc..

That is why we need to be help each other internationally.

I hope you will use my posts as weapon to fight against the evil.

I personally hope someone from the hacker group anonymous will help us.

I heard they are the believers of freewill and basic human rights.

Now Japan is where those are most abused.

Help us. Attack and collapse the gov.

Prayer for the dead Fukushima worker.

“A Fukushima worker died of acute leukemia”

8/30/2011,Tepco announced that a Fukushima worker died of acute leukemia.

They say,the worker was from one of the sub-contract companies,male in 40s.

He had not had worked at a nuc plant before Fukushima,he was working at the plant for
one week.

He died on 8/16,so probably he started working on 8/8 or 8/9.

The total exposure dose was 0.5mSv. They checked he did not have internal exposure.

He was working at a back room. His job was to open and close the door for other workers
come in and go out from the room.

For the question of an NHK reporter ,”Why did it take a half month to disclose the fact?”

They answered they were arranging for the privacy.

They emphasized that it has nothing to do with his work at the plant.

– Why now ?

The NHK reporter had a point. Why did they take 2 weeks to announce the accident.Their
saying “They were taking care of the privacy” does not make any sense.
One day before,8/29,a journalist asked them about a Fukushima worker who had his bone
broken.They did not disclose the accident until the journalist questioned. They emphasized
it is not connected to his work at the plant. so they have no reason to announce his
death.and there was no reason to keep it secret for two weeks.It only makes people even
more suspicious for people.

– Beyond the scope of the assumption

Tepco,JP gov and IAEA were trying to make a consensus that this accident was caused by
the Tsunami,which was powerful beyond they assumed.
However,it turned out they had already assumed of Tsunami higher than 10m ,3 years ago.
Some of the journalist suspect Tepco tried to use the “acute leukemia” as a spin control.

– Tepco trapped itself

Nuc industry were forcing Fukushima people to accept 20mSv/y.They say,there is
no “scientific” basis to prove you have a cancer under 100mSv/y.However,the worker is
told to have been exposed to “only” 0.5mSv in total. If that is true,it proves low level of
radiation may cause you acute symptoms. If that is not true,they take off the counters at
the plants. Actually,former minister of economy Kaieda commented last month.”I was very
impressed to see Fukushima workers.They take off the counters when they work.They
really dedicate their own lives to settle the whole situation.” Whichever it is,Tepco added
another mile stone for their history of deceiving.

– Was it really acute leukemia ?

There is a suspicion if it was really acute leukemia.In their announcement ,Tepco
spokesman said,Tepco did not conduct any check directly for the dead man. It’s only the
doctor who checked his body. Therefore the only source is the anonymous doctor.
NHK reporter asked Tepco,why don’t you ask the doctor for more details. They
answered,because it’s the diagnose of the doctor.
They do not make any sense again.
From the health check history,the dead man was totally fine until he went to Fukushima. He
had his blood tested but they detected no problem.Thus it can not be normal leukemia.
He had the symptom in one week and died.This is what the doctor stated.

However,doctors are often hired by Tepco around the nuc plant area.
Environment journalist Higuchi Kenji comments,it’s their custom to take sick workers to
the “hired” doctors like in Futaba sogo hospital,and have the doctors diagnose it’s not

related to radiation. Sometimes they diagnose it to be food poison and sick worker dies of

The dead worker did not even have a second opinion.Tepco is trying to conceal in the
name of privacy.

– The true meaning of this accident

A nuc worker died of acute leukemia.However,Tepco denies the connection between the
disease and radiation.It predicts that we will not be paid for any compensation for the same
logic even if we have leukemia.
Though everyone has already known,Tepco and JP gov will abandon us dying on the
street.Nobody will take any responsibility.
Even if you are away from Japan,I recommend you to save yourself.
