Strange thyroid cysts in 30% of Fukushima children

Author-Fukushima-diaryFormer head doctor of National Cancer Center,”Thyroids of Fukushima children look like honeycomb from too much cysts”  by Mochizuki on June 28th, 2013

On 3/10/2013, the former head doctor of National Cancer Center radiation diagnosis department, Matsue had a speech in Fukushima collaborative clinic. (There were some political opinions about this clinic but Fukushima Diary stays away from any kinds of the discussion, only focuses on the medical facts newly found.)

Dr. Matsue is the chief of this clinic. He stated thyroids of Fukushima children have countless numbers of cysts to look like honeycomb. <Translate>

(In the thyroid test of Fukushima children) Shockingly about 30% of the children have thyroid cysts. It was also 35% from Fukushima prefectural government’s test. Prefectural government’s test probably misses small cysts of 1~2mm because their test is too quick, but the cysts rate was almost the same. However, <Translate>

Countless numbers of small cysts were found in the thyroids of about half of those 30% children, which is not reported in the prefectural government’s test. I thought it was like “honeycomb”, I have never seen such a thing.

Recently, a clinic in Kobe tested the thyroid of the children who evacuated from Fukushima..


The doctor in Kobe also reported about the “honeycomb looking thyroids”. What the world is that ? It’s no less than the half of the thyroids. The half-life of I-131 is 8 days, but it’s not strange if it causes any thyroid abnormality. Rationally thinking, it has something to do with radiation. <Translate>

“Accumulated I-131 might have changed the structure of the thyroid.”
