  1. Abe’s Japan Is Blind to Scary Nuclear Reality By William Pesek Aug 13, 2013 6:00 AM GMT+0900 Bloomberg Abe’s Seriousness Dollar Signs That brings us to the “what.” Fukushima is a growing embarrassment for Japan on the international stage. Oceans don’t have boundaries. Radioactive traces have been found in bluefin tuna -- not to mention on secondhand cars and auto parts imported by Russia from Japan. Another earthquake -- a live possibility -- could damage Fukushima anew or take out another reactor between now and the 2020 Summer Olympics that Tokyo hopes to host. The world w

  4. Thyroid cancer risk for 2,000 Fukushima workers: TEPCO Published July 19, 2013 AFP TOKYO, Tokyo province (AFP) – Around 2,000 people who have worked at Japan's wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant face a heightened risk of thyroid cancer, its operator said Friday. Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) said 1,973 people -- around 10 percent of those employed in emergency crews involved in the clean-up since the meltdowns -- were believed to have been exposed to enough radiation to cause potential problems. The figure is a 10-fold increase on TEPCO's previous estimate of the number of possible thyroid ca
