Children in Fukushima

25.05.2012

Susanne Gerber

The number of deaths due to “cardiovascular diseases” in Fukushima has doubled. (This number includes cardiovascular deaths of children with congenital heart abnormalities.) This has not been seen in other prefectures which suffered damages from the earthquake/tsunami disaster. There are also increases in infectious diseases, cancer and leukemia, and pneumonia.

Total number of pediatric deaths (ages 1 to 19) due to illnesses in Fukushima, from March through November of 2010 (blue) vs. 2011 (pink) — „It has increased by a factor of 1.5 times, but pediatric deaths due to illnesses come in small numbers to begin with, so the absolute number is too small to determine if this is an “unusual phenomenon.” Similar changes can be seen considerably in past statistics or other prefectures.“
