Um, I have a few questions… what baseline was used? From what year? Where? If it’s from 2012, isn’t that a bit too late?

Thyroid survey shows no major gap between Fukushima, other areas

TOKYO (Kyodo) — Thyroid conditions among juvenile population in three prefectures across Japan — Aomori, Yamanashi and Nagasaki — are not much different from those of their counterparts in Fukushima Prefecture hit by the March 2011 nuclear crisis, a recent survey by the Environment Ministry showed Friday.

The ministry conducted the study from last November to March this year on a total of 4,365 people aged 3 to 18 in the cities of Hirosaki in Aomori, Kofu in Yamanashi and Nagasaki, and concluded that the percentages of detecting small lumps and other anomalies in the surveyed population were “almost equal to or slightly lower in Fukushima.”

The percentage of lumps measuring less than 5 millimeters or cysts smaller than 20 millimeters came to 57.6 percent in Hirosaki, 69.4 percent in Kofu, and 42.5 percent in Nagasaki, it said. After the 2011 accident, Fukushima Prefecture conducted thyroid tests on about 360,000 people under 18 and found lumps and other issues in 41.2 percent, stirring anxiety.

Shunichi Yamashita, vice president of Fukushima Medical University, said the latest survey underscored the fact that “small cysts and lumps naturally exist in children when they are examined with the same precision level as in Fukushima.”
