Japan: Decrease in White Blood Cells, Headaches, Nausea in Sendai City Hospital; Hair From Patients ‘Comes Off in a Clump’

Where is the mainstream media?  The Japanese are eating radioactive vegetableseggs, rice, beef, and who knows what else, not to mention what they’re drinking. Biologists are now saying that this disaster is much worse than they had thought, and TEPCO admits that this is going to continue for at least another decade. Expect to hear more and more about patients in Japan getting sick and dying.  And, eventually, not just in Japan either …

“Tweets from a nurse (my very good guess from her tweets) in a large hospital in Sendai City, Miyagi Prefecture on August 10:

Increasing number of patients with unexplainable decrease in white blood cells, headache, nausea. They are diagnosed for existing illness and undergo treatment, but they don’t respond to the treatment at all. I’ve seen those cases in my hospital. I’m not saying they are all because of the radiation exposure, but I’m telling you what I’m seeing.

When we wash their hair, it comes off in a clump. It is really scary. The doctor says, ‘I really wonder why the white blood cell count is down…’ Doctor, don’t be so relaxed about it. There is going to be more and more people who don’t respond to treatment.

She suspects internal radiation from hospital meals, which the in-patients have no choice but eat.” Read more.

Trace Levels of Radioactive Fallout From Japan Reaches California

Not to worry, it smells like fresh air.  At this distance there is no risk to people in California.

“A network of international monitoring stations has begun to pick up the signatures of radioactive elements emitted by Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, a Swedish official said Thursday.

At high, sustained doses, these radioactive elements—including iodine and cesium—can be dangerous to human health.

However, the amounts released from the plant so far are small, and are largely being dispersed over the Pacific.

Currently, ‘they don’t pose a danger’ to the U.S. or even other Asian countries, said Lars-Erik De Geer, research director at the Swedish Defense Research Institute, who has seen the data from the monitoring stations.”  Read more.
