Fukushima: 30% of children have thyroid nodules (likely cancer)

In a radio interview at Green Acre Radio, Dr. Helen Caldicott reported that c. 30% of Fukushima children have already developed lumps in their thyroid gland, a likely symptom of cancer among those under 20 (in adults it is less alarming).
Now that’s really early. That’s within the first year. That’s unheard of.
In Chernobyl, which was much more effectively evacuated and whose accident was probably quite less severe than that of Fukushima, the incidence of thyroid lumps in children grew a 60%.
