Japan Radiologist: Radiation can cause mutations like “fingers growing out of a shoulder”, other deformities in future humans (VIDEO)

SOURCE: German TV-channel ZDF talks with TEPCO-employees (german, english subs), October 8, 2011

At 4:30 in

Eisuke Matsui, Gifu Environmental Medicine Research Institute:

  • Lower radiation doses could cause significant health problems, even in subsequent generations
  • If the testicles are exposed to radiation this can cause genetic defects like fingers growing out of shoulder, other deformities

    After seeing what grew in the garden this year and documenting it, we dread what might come next year. :l

    Yeah, a little poking of fun is OK until you see the results of real testing equipment and see the freakish flowers and vegetables in your own yard. It soon becomes a different story because now it is too close to home and not something you read about here.

    Here is our photo page of freaks and mutated fruits and flowers.:

    The bug is something new. Not sure what to think about that yet.

      I’m starting to get the feeling I’m on the wrong site. Here we see what amounts to significant supporting evidence that underprivileged Japanese workers are being cycled through that death trap for peanuts, coerced into signing away their rights to future compensation and probably being exposed to dangerous levels of radiation into the bargain. These guys are not our enemy, they are ordinary people like ourselves trying to support their families in a tough situation. Yet the comments here (generally) are flippant and off topic.

      A little humour is sometimes needed (as James implied) but I don’t think we should forget the men in the front lines, as it were. The TEPCO management is a different matter. Mis-using these people from behind the security of the sub-contracter arrangement is one of their many immoral acts, legal or not. They should hang their heads in shame.

        Hi Steven, I get your point and I agree – I wonder who among us would be willing and / or able to bare what those workers go through. I know for sure I couldn’t.

        I don’t see though why you posted your comment as a reply to James’ post?

          Hi B&B :)

          Replied to James because I know he feels the same way about it, and hinted at that in his post.

          On your comment, well I wouldn’t go near the place, not for love nor money! But I can imagine something of the misery they must be experiencing. What I would like to see, is anyone who puts their hand up for nuclear power gets a free holiday in Japan with a couple of shifts at Fuku thrown in – and DON’T send us a post card. That would clear their muddled thoughts on the issue!

          Great to see Germany taking the lead on the anti-nuke movement btw. I know from your previous posts that it’s not quite so simple, but it’s headed in the right direction.

        I see your point, Steven. I have been guilty myself of humour, of a black flavour. I am exasperated and frustrated that this enormity of a disaster has happened. I want to blame someone, maybe the cretinous meritocrats that foisted this “clean energy solution” on the rest of us, but I can’t, since we all got “cheap energy” and were more or less content to go along with it.

        I have, as mentioned, an otherwise intelligent young relative who has argued stubbornly and successfully to spend a planned study year in the formerly honourable land of the formerly rising sun. My investment in this is deeply personal. At the same time, unlike many contributors here, I have a reasonable expectation of avoiding the worst of the contamination, through some lucky life choices.

        I feel deeply for all of the victims in this, citizens of the asias and the americas, parents, children, really everybody who is not privy to the information about local contamination. I want to shock the managers and manipulators into conscience and action. I cannot do this on my own, but sometimes the articulate expression of anger can help, even if only to show the big picture, the metalanguage, to help “us” put our point across and defeat the endless verbal diarrhoea of the numpty nuclearists.

        I will try to continue to contribute in this way. Words themselves are without value, but the effects of words can be of inestimable value.

          In the USA, we are facing, or Not Facing, the economic

          Hi Misitu :) Didn’t someone once say ‘the pen is mightier than the sword’? (Probably Shakespeare, he was behind most of ‘em). Taken at face value, that wisdom would suggest a requirement for calm persuasion rather than any expression of anger.

          I realise the situation warrants anger; clearly losing one’s temper is justifiable. But the nature of the written word precludes any positive outcome from such a display. This is a field of battle where patience, perseverence and wit rise above open hostility, which so often accompanies frustration and fear.

          Your ‘sword’ seems in good order, and is well used. Go forth, Sir Knight, and vanquish :)

      The albino bug is a common sight at Chernobyl. Just type in the two words albinoism and Chernobyl into Google and check out catfish, swallows, etc..

      “The rate of partial albinism among swallows near Chernobyl jumped from 0 percent before 1986 to 15 percent in 1991″

    Hi James,

    I am always amazed by your photos…so far I don’t see stuff like this around here, although maybe I’m just not looking hard enough…I am going to look mmore closely.

    Part of the problem is that I have been so busy with other stuff that I don’t pay attention to the flora very much…I’m not sure I would recognize changes even if they were there.

    I even planted chard and kale for the first time this year, but after Fukushima happened I was worried about the radiation, so I lost interest.
    Later my geiger counter showed normal background radiation in the soil…I’ve eaten it, but still not convinced it’s totally safe.

    I’m going to make an effort to notice any anomolies in the foliage around here. But I also wonder if some of your stuff might be from the Los Alamos incident…do you know if that may have affected your area?

    sounds like if the post is just at the wrong corner here.
    we talk about contamination and not about contergan..
    but the basics are the same,
    build by damage dna.
    but the contergan deffect goes on the same parts on the dna, and made the same fxs.
    atomic build bodys are more in a wild-style.
    and to make prophecy about the “build-out” of a radiocluide stressed dna will be not possible to do it exactly before ZELLTEILUNG have started.
    but james,
    hammerharte bilder you have.
    and how dirty they look!
    really evil…
    where do you lives?
    and is that the first time ?

    Hello James

    Do you have a Geiger counter and have you tested your garden? Is it possible that what causes this growth is also difficult to detect?

    No worries! Manichi titles: “Radioactive substance levels in Fukushima reactor building drop below legal limits”

    “..Recent atmospheric readings taken inside the building [of unit 1] showed concentrations of cesium 134 and 137 between one-thousandth and one-ten-thousandth becquerels per cubic centimeter – one-tenth the legal limit for breathing air for nuclear workers. Iodine 131 was also below detectable levels.”

    Who would’ve thought? /sarc

    What a nightmare. These poor workers going into work where their microsievert GC can only report “ERROR” because it is not capable of taking higher readings and all of this exposure for just 80-100 Euros a day. There isn’t any after work readings being done on them. They just go home to their families. They are afraid. So much unemployment in the area. They worry about supporting their families in the future and about future generations.

    I am glad Germany got this video out but sorry that this subject matter exists.
    There is no end in sight. No boundries to the destruction and sorrow for ever and ever.

    I don’t want to see the progression of radiation poisoning in the human genome. I really don’t want it to see it in my food. Problem is I don’t have a choice but to watch in horror as my diet changes, my food becomes mutated. It’s easily one of the crappiest situations imaginable. Yes I feel bad for the workers at the plant. I already realize they will not be alive in the next 1-2 years with off the charts readings at the site. The nuclear site will become a graveyard for the working poor of Japan. They are everyday individuals who are making a heroic effort to fix a problem with unknown levels of danger and have no reassurance that it may even be able to be solved. It is a disgusting truth we must all face in the years to come.

    Are they near a Nuke plant maybe?
    Has there been any Fuku Fallout lately?
    Can I drink the water there?

    Those are the questions I would be asking. :)

    These kinds of mutations occur due to changes or damage to the DNA. The guy in the video says he’s never seen this in 40 years. hmmm…?
