Japanese professor says Fukushima radiation leaks are harming children's health
A media professor at Akia University in Japan has claimed that children in his country are suffering serious medical problems as a result of last year's Fukushima nuclear disaster.
In an interview on WorkWeek Radio (which works with Project Censored), Prof. Akira "Lazy Cat" Murakami linked the leak of radiation to kids have suffering nosebleeds, skin diseases, short tempers, and cardiovascular diseases.
Murakami said that the Japanese mainstream media is not covering the impacts, but this information is being disseminated to Japanese people through cyberspace.
"Our food regulations are quite loose," Murakami said. "We have only spot inspections."
He called on Americans to do whatever they can to shut down remaining nuclear reactors.
"This planet could not afford another Chernobyl or another Fukushima," he said.
Radio host Steve Zeltzer conducted the interview, which is available below:
